Track Name: Pink Cloud 9
(Verse 1)
You may never see me again.
Not while I'm in the state I'm in.
But if you do you can be sure it's
just a character performance.
Will you wait for me while I accept
My current status as a side effect?
And as I address my mood,
I feel a sudden change of altitude.

(Chorus)
I can see my house from here,
and I like the view but it's dark up here.
So, no tea and sympathy
while I market my misery.
I can never crash and drown
if I never come down.

(Verse 2)
Don't you dare ask me to stop.
Couldn't even if I wanted to.
But my addiction
is self infliction.
Never been so in love.
I've never been so in love.

But I'm actually okay.
Still got a ways to go.
And that'll be nice to say
when I'm 28 years old.
I can't see into the future, but

(Chorus)

I can see my house from here.
I like the view.
You'd like it, too.

I can see my house from here,
and I like the view but it's dark up here.
So, no tea and sympathy
while I market my misery.
I'll never crash and drown.
Track Name: Candy Cane Forest
The problem with a safety net is that even if you need one, it still means that you're gonna fall/
I find forgiveness to be seldom seen and, of all the feelings you can have I think that pity's worst of all/
I've been thinking bout where this began/
When I was trapped inside a place I simply couldn't stand/
And now the journeys take me to a place that's one of courage
But I'm too scared to leave/
(I'm too scared)

Someone out there please explain/
The difference between love and pain/
Cuz I've been be tryna figure
Why they're starting to feel the same/

The problem with a safety net is that even if you need one, it still means that you're gonna fall/
I find rescues to be seldom seen when you're far too cowardly to even answer when they call/
Some friends of mine hold out there hands/
And say lets get motivated to do the best we can/
But the more I reach back to the them to pull them closer, the more I push them away/
(I'm too scared)

Someone out there please explain/
The difference between love and pain/
Cuz I've been be tryna figure
Why they're starting to feel the same/
And I can't bring myself to get/
The difference between life and death/
Cuz I've been tryna figure/
Why they're starting to feel the same/

Life can't be about just trying not to die/
Track Name: Safety Harbor
That day I could've been anyone I wanted to be but/
That day I just wanted to be me/

I've spent everyday this year trying to break out of this stasis/
Therapeutic Isolation, on an everyday basis/
And I'm always surrounded by the constant threat of evil/
And I can't look at myself and can't be seen by other people/
Like I'm always chasing peace, and my god damn legs don't work/
But I saw something to behold and I just wanted to observe a while /

Felt like summer in November, and for a moment I felt better/

I always feel like this/
In an identity crisis/
And That day I could've been anyone I wanted to be but /
That day I just wanted to be me /

But I don't most days. And thats gotta change/
That can't be the best way to do this/
I don't feel wanted/
All i feel haunted, by memories of trying to get through this/
There's people progressing that I keep denying/
While I comment on the sideline and mock them for trying/
Not knowing how good I could be/
Next Halloween I wanna dress up as me/

I always feel like this/
In an identity crisis/
And That day I could've been anyone I wanted to be but /
That day I just wanted to be me/

Therapeutic isolation/
I need to rise above my station/
If nothing I do matters, all that matters is what I do/
Track Name: Follow Your Nightmares
Im worried pain is the strongest feeling I'll ever have/
If pain reveals who we truly are, then maybe I'm not so bad/
I'm gonna die trying to make a point no one's ever going to get/
I'm not discouraged enough to shut up yet/

I want to be out there/
There's must be something/
I wanna follow my nightmares/
So here goes nothing/

I wanna be an outlier, look stupid in the front row/
I wanna be innocent, experienced, go places I'd never go/
I've spent enough time on my knees in worship. And now it's time to kill my idols/
I'll make sure that their death takes a while/

Let me out of here/
I want to do what scares me/
