Track Name: Aeris
Hush, don't speak
I'm trying to feel the air that we both breathe
I'm trying to find the language we both speak
'Cause I know you're here
You're watching me
It's all I've ever needed

Now let's go deep
The tiny frail bones breaking off of your cheeks
Is the last image I'll ever see
Why's the last image I'll ever see
The thing that's gonna break me

Into the darkness
Into that black hole
I can see further than arms length
'Cause what hasn't killed me just made me cold

Don't be one out of four
Who knows more than just my name
The only constant in a family that has gone to waste
Lord, let me rest now
'Till I crumble at your feet

I've died so many times
Regretting how I've said goodbye
But I was just a silly child
And I will beg you for forgiveness
Singing this when you're by my side

Don't leave me now
You have carried me this far
I'd go back ten thousand miles
To not forget who you are
Track Name: Happiness in Measures
Always waited for the day they wished they were me
The day that they'd regret all the things they'd ever said to me
So now I paint their faces smiling when they see me come alive
'Cause our heads need to face forward to make sure we are going to thrive
(We are going to thrive, we are going to thrive)

So get your small town minds past those small town signs
We get happiness in measures we're not blessed with time
Stick to bettering the place you're at and pack in the fucking two faced act
We get happiness in measures so stop wasting all your time

Gotta get down, gotta move up
I refuse to get caught up in this high school stuff
Oh, now I'm talking back, are you taking that?
(Are you taking that? Are you taking that?)
How's it now in the big bad world with nowhere to go with your stupid girls
My middle finger's already high up in the clouds pointing to your crowd

So get your small town minds past those small town signs
We get happiness in measures we're not blessed with time
Stick to bettering the place you're at and pack in the fucking two faced act
We get happiness in measures so stop wasting all your time
So get your small town minds past those small town signs
We get happiness in measures we're not blessed with time
Stick to bettering the place you're at and pack in the fucking two faced act
We get happiness in measures so stop wasting all your time

Stop wasting all your time being a bitch
'Cause there's no fix, there's no fixing it
There's no fixing you
So stop wasting all your time being a bitch
'Cause there's no fix, there's no fixing it
There's no fixing you

So get your small town minds past those small town signs
We get happiness in measures we're not blessed with time
Stick to bettering the place you're at and pack in that fucking two faced act
We get happiness in measures so stop wasting all your time
So get your small town minds past those small town signs
We get happiness in measures we're not blessed with time
Stick to bettering the place you're at and pack in that fucking two faced act
We get happiness in measures so stop wasting all your time
Track Name: If Hate Wasn't A Word, Would You Still Exist?
Just eighteen and naive, I almost wish I was still there
In a blissful ignorance living life without a care, without a care
Then at 20 years, was done with all the lies that I’d been fed
Now seen the world is more severe with what the media has said
And what it’s sold us

I am done with all the talking
I’ll try fighting for this cause
Shut up with your lame excuses for the humans who’re at fault
Open your eyes
C’mon, open your eyes and tell me that we’re working

I remember being young, infatuated, naive to all these demons that we humans have created
Girls, boys, gay and straight
If hate wasn’t a word would it affect your fate?
Shaking off the horrors of what’s going down now
Memories of being young is what I live for
Screaming blink-182 in the middle of the dance floor
Feeling hardcore and invincible, no cares, where did all that go?
Guess it went when I opened up my eyes to the bullshit this world stands for

I am done with all the talking
I’ll try fighting for this cause
Shut up with your lame excuses for the humans who’re at fault
Open your eyes
C’mon, open your eyes and tell me that we’re working

God, gotta hear my own sounds
Otherwise I’ll drown
In society we founded now
God, gotta hear my own sounds
Otherwise I’ll drown

I am done with all the talking
I’ll try fighting for this cause
Shut up with your lame excuses for the humans who’re at fault
Open your eyes
C’mon, open your eyes and tell me that we’re working
I am done with all the talking
I’ll try fighting for this cause
Shut up with your lame excuses for the humans who’re at fault
Open your eyes
C’mon, open your eyes and tell me that we’re working
(If hate wasn’t a word would you still exist?)
Track Name: You'll Never Know
You'll never know
Exactly what goes on in my head
'Cause instead of staying strong
You showed me a million ways to cave
When things go wrong

I'll never know
Exactly what went wrong
I looked to you for my reflection
But all I captured were the flaws
All that gave me was a million ways to hate
Who I've become

You'll never see
How you called me out
For all the errors in my system
You caused but blamed society

So since we fucked up your life
Do you not regret leaving when you could

'Cause growing up was a curse
My childish eyes looked up to yours
They say the skies the limit
But under your rule there's a roof
I wrote this story on my arms
Begged you to go deep within my scars
But you'll never know

Oh, you'll never know
