Track Name: The Upside Down
Here we are, our worlds apart
Between two broken hearts
A counterfeit reality
Between the light and dark

The piece of mind that gives me sight
Is lost between the dark and light
My life has been polarized
By ghosts I keep inside

My world is inside out
My feet won't touch the ground
I've lost my way into the upside down

I think I need you now
My time is running out
Can't find my way out of the upside down

The mirror image of my fears
And all I thought I loved
Echos back my world in vein
And all I've left undone

The in-between is changing me
Reversing who I want to be
Which way is reality?
It's a distant memory

There's monsters in the shadows
Their hearts are black as pitch
The darkness calls my name and
I'm afraid I might give in

The mistakes that never let me grow
Are ghosts of secrets left untold
A truth only this forest knows
I need you now, I'm losing hold
Track Name: The Way Out
THE WAY OUT

Shadows surround me
Swallowing my sight
I open my eyes wide
But I don't see the light

Cold stares
From everywhere
I've got nowhere to go

Someone
Somehow somewhere
You just have to know

I'm trapped inside
A self I never find

I tried to save myself
But I don't know how
Can you show me the way out
Show me the way out
Everything around me
Comes crashing down
Can you show me the way out
Show me the way out
My fears and doubts
They scream so loud
I'm upside down
Without a way out

The ghost in my future
Keeps the past alive
Is this my prison
Or my favorite place to hide?

Regrets
I can't forget
I just can't let go

Someone
Somehow somewhere
You just have to know

I'm trapped inside
A self I never find

I tried to save myself
But I don't know how
Can you show me the way out
Show me the way out
Everything around me
Comes crashing down
Can you show me the way out
Show me the way out
My fears and doubts
They scream so loud
I'm upside down
Without a way out

I'm trapped inside my body
I'm trapped inside myself
I'm trapped inside my body
There's no way out
I'm trapped inside
A self I'll never find
Track Name: Hole in Your Heart
One day all your things will break
They'll open up and let your hope escape
One day all these things you take
Will tell the secrets you never gave away
This pleasure is a curse
Before we heal, we'll get worse
We only need one more, then we'll be loved

There's no love
In the things that you save
There's no room inside of your grave
There's a hole
There's a hole
There's a hole in your heart
We only live for the things that we lost

One day you'll let down your guard
The fortress built with someone else's heart
One day, the things you save
Will turn against you and wrap you up in chains

Somehow it's not enough
There's never flow - there's only flood
We only need one more, then we'll be loved

There's no love
In the things that you save
There's no room inside of your grave
There's a hole
There's a hole
There's a hole in your heart
We only live for the things that we lost

Somehow it's not enough
When we live for everything that we lost
Some how it's not enough
What we possess only possesses our hearts
Track Name: What's Inside
Sometimes I wonder why
I never feel complete
Why there's the whole wide world
And then there's you and me

When all the things you know
Have nowhere else to go
When all you have stays inside
Looking for a home

Do you know what that feels like?

Look into my eyes
I'm hoping you can see inside
There's more than what's outside

Look into my eyes
I'm hoping you can change your mind
What counts is what's inside

Sometimes I wonder if
We'll ever know true love
When this world makes you think
You're never quite enough

Deep inside each of us
An island universe
But all those stars and empty space
Make no room for us

Look into my eyes
I'm hoping you can see inside
There's more than what's outside

Look into my eyes
I'm hoping you can change your mind
What counts is what's inside

I won't live a lie
Open your eyes and open your mind
