Track Name: An Hour Away
Unexpected, I couldn’t see
In retrospect I was blinded by insecurities
Unexpected, no I couldn’t see
In retrospect I always thought you’d abandon me (first)

I remember, I remember you
I thought l was all alone
When all along, I had you (close)

Dim visions repeat of subtle glances,
Our beat aligned to succeed,
Now I beseech to be made anew,
With attempts to subdue the pressing recall,
That I no longer hold you

Closer to me
Be made anew
Track Name: Moving In The Right Direction
When I heard the cries of my brothers
The words replayed in my head:

“the quality of our fabric depends on every thread”

I heard the call for resistance and resolved to answer it
Though I bleed in the struggle I refuse to give in

Though self-serving greed seeps in,
Misanthropy and mistrust form new social norms,
Though most who see us will doubt our ability to empathize,
Or suffer for one another,
I won't give up on you

I still believe in you
i still believe in this
Track Name: Talking Again
Know you’re tempted to fold,
When in the garden of your mind anxiety grows,
When your sadness engulfs and seizes control

I too struggle with madness,
Move on we'll get past this,
Keep wrestling with your doubt

It’s not your fault that that happened,
Find warmth and grasp it,
This is not who you are

Heavy, you plunge,
I watch you slip into the deep

but you’re not beyond my reach

Take my hand, I don’t care what they told you,
I know you

I know your slipping,
and I know well of the Hell that you’re living in,

Don’t worry, you and I will make it to the other side

Though you sink and you sink
I won’t let you slip away
I know that you're caving in
Refuse to fold
