Track Name: Stepping Stones
I’ve come to find with my noisy mind
thoughts can cut deeper than anything you had in mind.
Who’s to say whose dream to break?
Which breath to take which step to make, sleeping to be awake.
We walk the path of stepping stones laid by the unknown to be worth it
I ask you this is it worth the wait take a leap of faith towards the deep end

Don’t let the tide pull you in the current is stronger from within.
No one tells you how hard it will be but you’ll get your taste of the salt from the sea and you’ll never know until you step off your stones.

You sit there while you twirl your thumbs, never knowing whats coming for you
You’re losing all your time with your waiting and waiting with your waiting and waiting
Don’t you know that life moves fast if you never take your grasp you’re stuck sitting on the line of someone else's mind.
On your way to crash and burn I hope you know you’ll never learn by waiting and waiting with your waiting and waiting.

Don’t let the tide pull you in the current is stronger from within.
No one tells you how hard it will be but you’ll get your taste of the salt from the sea and you’ll never know until you step off your stones.

We walk the path of stepping stones laid by the unknown to be worth it I ask you this is it worth the wait take a leap of faith towards the deep end

Don’t let the tide pull you in the current is stronger from within.
No one tells you how hard it will be but you’ll get your taste of the salt from the sea and you’ll never know until you step off your stones.
Track Name: Roots
I no longer want to watch my days pass, beneath my feet.
I no longer want to hear my name called beneath the trees.
I’m built for better things than this I’m built for stronger walls
I’m built for better days than this cause I’ve seen them all.
My world is upside down and I’m neither here nor now and I’ve saved the blame for
gravity it has it out for me, oh gravity it’s got the best of me, let my feet touch the ground let my eyes see the sound oh gravity bring me down, down, down, oh bring me down.

You would have thought that my heavy heart would have weighed me down to the floor
Who would have thought that my heavy heart would have shaken me down to the core
Now my fears have brought me to the sky and I live here asking what and why and I feel my wisdoms on its way and I’ll see my days.

My world is upside down and I’m neither here nor now and I’ve saved the blame for
gravity it has it out for me, oh gravity it’s got the best of me, let my feet touch the ground let my eyes see the sound oh gravity bring me down, down, down, oh bring me down.

Gravity it has it out for me, oh gravity it’s got the best of me, let my feet touch the ground let my eyes see the sound oh gravity bring me down, down, down, oh bring me down.

Let my feet touch the ground let my eyes see the sound oh gravity bring me down, down, down, oh bring me down.
Track Name: Fragile at Best
Tear it apart from the end to the start and tell me what do you see
A girl who’s insecure who feels unsure of who she used to be
Four months ago from what they know the whole world was placed in her hands
Now its flipped over the weights on her shoulders her knees began to buckle in.
Too much too soon too late for counting ways I have nothing left to say.

She’s been lost for a while too long now
Lost away locked away from the pain of the real
Keeps her running from the chains with the stains of her last mistake.

Too much too soon too late for counting ways I have nothing left too say.
Too much too soon too late for counting days that you barely escaped.
When will her story write a better end?

Pull it apart strings attached to her heart and tell me what do you think
Now she’s addicted to numbing her senses and losing her grip on everything.
Months ago she took her stand saying she deserved a better man
Now she’s losing her mind cause she wasted her time her ships been stranded high and dry.

Too much too soon too late for counting ways I have nothing left too say.
Too much too soon too late for counting days that you barely escaped.
When will her story write a better end?

Too much too soon too late for counting days that you barely escaped.
Too much too soon too late for counting ways I have nothing left to say.
Track Name: Hit the Ground Running
You talk, your talk
But I walk my walk and walk it off
Don’t think you’ve got me now
You up your score
But I leave em coming back for more
Don’t think you’ve got me now

I’m gonna drop down hit the ground running
Watch you fall on your knees
I’m gonna drop down hit the ground running
And it won’t be the last
Drop down, hit the ground running
Watch you fall on your knees
Drop down, hit the ground running
And it won’t be the last,
Won’t be the last you hear of me

You hold your crown
But I’m turning around town
Don’t think you’ve got me now
Roll out the map paint on the wall
My line is set, I’m on a roll
I know my name, I’ve found my throne
I know my place and where I’m going.

I’m gonna drop down hit the ground running
Watch you fall on your knees
I’m gonna drop down hit the ground running
And it won’t be the last
Drop down, hit the ground running
Watch you fall on your knees
Drop down, hit the ground running
And it won’t be the last,
Won’t be the last you hear of me

Roll out the map paint on the wall
My line is set, I’m on a roll
I know my name, I’ve found my throne
I know my place and where I’m going.
Where I’m going
Where I’m going

Drop down, hit the ground running
Watch you fall on your knees
Drop down, hit the ground running
And it won’t be the last
Drop down, hit the ground running
Watch you fall on your knees
Drop down, hit the ground running
And it won’t be the last,
Won’t be the last you hear of me
Hear of me
Hear of me
Track Name: Compass
I’ve been drifting along for a while now
Setting aside right from wrong for a while now

Can ya help me
Maybe teach me all the kind of ways
Tell me how to
How to make it to my better days
I’ve been stranded
I need a better light to see the bay

Take my hand, peel my eyes
Show me the bluer skies
Comfort my aching mind
Compass, be my guide
Show me what, what I’ve been looking for

Rain has seeped into my soul
My colors bleed, and I unfold
At the seams, I fall apart
The missing threads, holes in my heart

No I never
I never want to be the one to say
My world is broken
‘Cause it revolves around the other way
I’m on my knees
I don’t believe, but I’ve begun to pray
What are we waiting for?

Take my hand, peel my eyes
Show me the bluer skies
Comfort my aching mind
Compass, be my guide
Show me what, what I’ve been looking for

One step forward
Two steps backwards
Eyes wide open
Let in the light
Free my spirit
Embrace my soul
Show me what
What I’ve been looking for
