Track Name: Holiday
fragile mind- I need something to take me away
you and I, maybe we should run together
apathy- I want something to make me hunger.
the world is on fire so I think we should run together.
we wouldn't have a care,
we wouldn't have to change ourselves
we're running out of time
we're burning out and wasting our lives
I don't know how to feel
I don't know how to face my future
growing up is tiring, living for now is all I can do.

I don't understand these rules
I just wanna speak with my heart
I don't wanna tone it down
I just want to do what feels real

I just gotta tune it out.
Track Name: Adventure Spirit
Track Name: Tender
daylight fades away, and you're looking for an escape from everything.
follow my voice, and I'll serenade you through your darkest nights.
weakness takes its toll- I hope you know that you're not alone in suffering
when you are blue, I will be there for you.

I know this hurts, we all hurt sometimes.
just know this will all subside- I won't let you lose control again.

daylight fades away, and temptation grows ever strong inside of you
you are so good, just know that mistakes don't define a man.
trust can feel so wrong. someday you'll trust that I'm here to stay, please take your time.
Nothing is real but I still believe in you.
Push me away...when you love someone, you love them patiently, and I won't let you slip away from me.

Close your eyes, don't be afraid of it, we're all waiting from the other side.
Under my spell, you will find the strength to leave your fears behind.
I've got this light to give,
you and me, we could fall asleep and wake up to a new sunrise.
Track Name: Blossom
take your wounds and turn them into new light
tenderness is not a flaw- don't be afraid of your own faith in something or someone
love is all we have to give
in the garden grove, wild and pure, we could survive here, my dear, holding onto light
if your body gives away underneath the weight of the world, its unforgiving hands pull, clench all the life from us all, and it takes and it takes
be a rose in this wasteland
you could bloom if you opened up your heart

you were not created for a world that keeps you small
find your feet and spread your arms, these walls cannot contain you
let yourself be swept away by beauty and the unknown
love will leave us bare,
but love will lead us there.
Track Name: a Map a String a Light pt 2
night falls like a curtain, and I lay down to sleep.
life feels like a burden, and I don't want to bear it.
take me in your arms, I won't make a sound.
I don't feel a thing- but I want to feel light, and I want to feel love.
we fly like birds, and our sky is boundless,
we drift like ghosts- we are lost.
lead me, come surround me, please don't leave me here alone
I can see us now- we're so beautiful
I was terrified and not ready...
but death felt like a sweet release

we fly like birds, and our sky is boundless,
we drift like ghosts- we are lost, and I am lost.

but there could be some light at the end.
