Track Name: The Door
Lock the door
Throw away the key
Circling a frame of mind repeating infinitely

Look no more
There's nothing left to see
Receding now you're out of tune with your own psyche

Thought it was the end
Felt like a sacrifice
Brought me to the edge
But it didn't feel right

I'll cross the bridge again
You're at the other end
I'm only here so you can't burn it down without me

I'll close the door again
I'll bleed to see it end
I'll do the things you wish you didn't know about me

Silent crimes
Committed now and then
The cost of what your skin has paid is more than your soul can spend

One more time
Repeat it all again
You'll take it past the line in spite of hesitation

Thought it was the end
Felt like a sacrifice
Brought me to the edge
But it didn't feel right

I'll cross the bridge again
You're at the other end
I'm only here so you can't burn it down without me

I'll close the door again
I'll bleed to see it end
I'll do the things you wish you didn't know about me

I was nowhere in my head
That's why I thought to look outside instead

There was no one at my door
That's when I felt it hit me to my core

And the minutes ticked away
That's when I feared that I could not be saved

Cause there was nothing in their eyes
They're who showed me to crawl inside my mind
Track Name: Shattered
Feeling stupid and out of control
(No place to call my own)
Is this what it's like to be dead?
(No place to rest my head)

All my choices weighing down on me
(Can't handle what I've seen)
Insecurities are here to stay
(Can't get out of my own way

If I could crack the past
I'd shatter it like glass
If I could just forget
I'd try to look ahead

Feeling everybody's eyes on me
(Just turn away and let me be)
I'm criticized by my own mind
(Wish I could do something right)

Over analyzing all my flaws
(So many ways that I've been wrong)
Holding down all my anxiety
(Before it starts to hold me)

I'm falling fast
Faced with my past
Let me fade away

Like shattered glass
I'm chipped and scratched
Broken in my frame


If I could crack my past
I would shatter the glass
If I could just forget
I would try to look ahead
Track Name: Internalize
Leave it up to me
I'm taking neutrality
Misinterpreting it to something, I see
That could only be bad news to me

Want to see how much I hate myself
Through short, subtle jokes
Have you ever seen someone with self-esteem so low
Take all the interactions that I've had
Internalize until there's nothing good to be said
Track Name: Anatomy
We are all the sum of parts
Pulsing veins and beating hearts
Ligaments and tendencies
To hide away our greatest dreams

We are all the sum of choices
Screaming thoughts and empty voices
Close our eyes so we can see
It's all in our anatomy

(We are more)
Flesh and blood and skin and bone
(We are more)
Feelings float and turn to stone
We are more
We're inside
We are more than what you see
We are more
We're a force
More than they want us to be

We are all a composition
Diffidence within ambition
Black and white and shades of gray
Fall in line or fade away

We are all a conscious thought
Lessons learned and lessons taught
Words we say and things we do
Experiences we've been through

(We are more)
Flesh and blood and skin and bone
(We are more)
Feelings float and turn to stone
We are more
We're inside
We are more than what you see
We are more
We're a force
More than they want us to be

We are all the sum of parts
Pulsing veins and beating hearts
Close our eyes so we can see
It's all in our anatomy
