Track Name: Built To Break
I get the feeling that I'm missing out
It's on the tip of my tongue
And the words just won't come out
Always ask so much more of myself
Because I spend all my time wishing I was somewhere else

It feels like it's getting harder to breathe
With the rush of thoughts and no time for reprieve
Always told that it's all in my head
When my response goes unsaid

There is no safe place to be found here
The walls in my mind are built too high
How can I overcome my fears?
Anxiety has got me built to break

You tell yourself it'll be ok
While I sit here at home and I wish for better days
No excuse to give up in the end
While I'm stuck here alone with these messages unsent

I'm breaking up into smaller pieces
And I hope someone will finally notice

There is no safe place to be found here
The walls in my mind are built too high
How can I overcome my fears?
Anxiety has got me built to break

I wish I could let go
But no one ever taught me how

I get the feeling that I'm missing out
It's on the tip of my tongue
And the words just won't come out
Always ask so much more of myself
Because I spend all my time wishing I was somewhere else
Track Name: Written Out For Me
I'm a long walk from anywhere
Wearing thin across a wasteland
Finding life getting harder
The more I understand
Didn't realise this road is barren
Meaningless words
In one ear and out the other
Doesn't mean I'm listening
I don't want to hear it
This bullshit is deafening

What do you want to be?
I can't find my destination
I can't help but feeling life's been written out for me
I'm finding it hard to breathe
And I'm running out of patience
I can't help but feeling life's been written out for me

Can I find my place here?
It can't be that hard, can it?
I'm destined to fail if I sit around here getting comfortable
And I saw myself
Five years from now
I'd do anything to give myself a second chance

What do you want to be?
I can't find my destination
I can't help but feeling life's been written out for me
I'm finding it hard to breathe
And I'm running out of patience
I can't help but feeling life's been written out for me

And I know where I've been
But I don't know where I'm going
Can I keep up the pace?
Got no intentions of slowing

So what do you want to be?
I can't find my destination
Life's been written out for me

I can't find my destination
I can't help but feeling life's been written out for me
I'm finding it hard to breathe
And I'm running out of patience
I can't help but feeling life's been written out for me
Track Name: Redemption
I thought I knew it all
But I tried to run before I learnt to crawl
And now I'm looking from the ground below
At a world that's passed me by
I didn't know that time would fly without me
I've hit the ground, I'm running on empty

And now I've lost my spark
Left in the dark
Truth's been exposed
I guess I should've known

So many signals and warning signs
I ignored all the guidelines
I should've learnt my lesson
Instead I ended up guessing

And now I know I've found
The answers in the dust I've kicked around
And now I wish that I could change it all
But I can't, not anymore
I threw away the key after I locked the door
Up off the ground, rewrite the ending

And now I've lost my spark
Left in the dark
Truth's been exposed
I guess I should've known

So many signals and warning signs
I ignored all the guidelines
I should've learnt my lesson
Instead I ended up guessing
