Track Name: Growing Up
GROWING UP

So here I stand thinking about the best of times
When nothing could stand in our way
Those days were yours and mine
And time goes by while we sit and wash away
Holding onto memories and counting down the days

Growing up is never easy and I'll be the first to say I'll change
Nothing stays the same
Growing up will never be easy and I'm not afraid to say I've changed
Nothing stays the same

Nothing can stay the same

Now I think back, back to what we shared
It seems so distant, like we were never there
We've grown apart and it seems sad to say
We've disconnected and it still gets to me

Now here I stand thinking about these days
We've found our own directions and we're facing different ways
You'll find your feet and I'll keep these memories
For no matter where we go, we're all just seeking peace

Growing up is never easy and I'll be the first to say I'll change
Nothing stays the same
Growing up will never be easy and I'm not afraid to say I've changed
Nothing stays the same
Track Name: Doubt (guest vocals by Sam Jamieson)
DOUBT

So much doubt
So much second guessing where we stand and why
Reaching out for something to cling to with acceptance in sight
Are we blind to what we feel?
Are we numb to what's inside?
So afraid of self awareness and what others feel is right

I can feel it
The pressure to fit in
Without introspection we'll never win

I see it in my peers
I see it in young and old
Social anxiety taking over and grabbing a hold
What is it worth to stand alone and find identity?
All of this pressure to conform is getting the best of you and me

I can feel it
The pressure to fit in
Without introspection we'll never win

I just can't hide who I am inside
Because I'm burning out and losing sight
Fear of unacceptance prescribes who we're meant to be
And I am so afraid of what others will see

I can feel it
The pressure to fit in
Without introspection we'll never win
Track Name: THE PRICE
THE PRICE

The price they pay

I can't understand the difference
We're all living beings
Breathing, growing, but not all bleeding to fulfil others needs
The arrogance of controlling others lives
Deciding when they'll meet an end
I can't believe my eyes

And if I asked you not to look away (the price they pay)
Would you hear me? (the price they pay)
Would you see another way? (the price they pay)

Behind closed doors, callous and inhumane
Beaten, abused and broken down
Pushed until insane
Why try to keep tradition in it's place?
The hurt, the pain, the suffering
All for a taste

I can't turn and look the other way when animals are dying everyday just to satisfy human needs
There's a price that they will pay for what we eat
Track Name: COMPETITION
COMPETITION

Competition between you and me
It's blinding us
Now I can't see
Envy
I only want just what you have
Frustrations
We'll leave them in the past

Growing wise together
Learning from mistakes
Understanding flaws
Before the tension breaks

I'm only human and I concede
I get brought down by insecurities
Learning to take control when my demons take a hold

Growing wise together
Learning from mistakes
Understanding flaws
Before the tension breaks

I don't want to let you down again
When you let me down I'll understand
We're all fighting weights that keep us down
It's not easy when it's you that hits the ground
Track Name: NOTHING REMAINS (guest vocals by Martin Specowius)
NOTHING REMAINS

Tell me what happened
Why did it change?
Give me one reason why I should feel the same?
So much to stand for
Swelling with pride
But I don't hate you for what you feel inside

Learning, growing, thinking, changing
Living, feeling, shifting, engaging

Nothing remains

Tell me what shifted inside your head
I just can't see through all the words you said
A higher meaning I just can't see
I can't find a reason why your stance came to be

We spent so long together but now we're worlds apart
And I'm asking myself "why did this all fall apart?"

Nothing remains
Track Name: OPPORTUNITIES
OPPORTUNITIES

Look back at where you've been
Footprints and memories
Colours and shades of grey
Moments build into days
The years pass by so fast
Present fades into past
All in a symphony of what life will come to be

The passing days quickly erased
Opportunities to be ceased

And when the seasons change
Time falls into place
Potential to repeat the same enduring beat
Critics will always speak up when you least need to know
That we all have to fall to have the chance to grow

The passing days quickly erased
Opportunities to be ceased

If I could turn back time
I wouldn't change a thing
Because the lessons learnt become my everything
If I could turn back time
I wouldn't change a thing
Because the chance to grow is such a precious thing

The passing days quickly erased
Opportunities to be ceased

The chances we create are like water through our hands
But I still need to see everything that I can

The beat will carry on whether you hear or not
But if you listen, you'll hear the music play along
