The first single from our new EP "The Way Out"


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
