You’re pushing harder, pushing harder than you ever have Running on empty should pull over but there’s no time for that, no time On the starting block adrenaline is pumping high Terror in the water muffled scream just follow the blue line So much hate in this skin So much weight in this win Don’t you know, don’t you know There’s nothing to prove There’s nothing to be scared of You are enough You try to do it all you give more than you ever get back It's you who puts the pressure on, can't blame anybody else for that You caught a glimpse unzipped and stepped out into the light You took the long way to find out there was no need to apologise So much hate in this skin So much weight in this win Don’t you know, don’t you know There’s nothing to prove There’s nothing to be scared of You are enough (x 2) There's nothing to be scared of Just enjoy the view You don't need to please anybody else, You’ve got nothing to be scared of Just enjoy the view You don’t need please anybody else You don’t need to be anybody else

I’ll have a drink for you You’re gonna be a Mother soon I’m so happy for you I just thought that I’d be next in line It’s ok though I’m having fun And while there is no one who’s dependent on me I gotta live it up But why do I feel like I’m missing out? How was your trip to Sante Fe? It’s great you got some time away You looked so happy in the photos I’m sure they didn’t do it justice Why do I feel like I’m missing out? When everybody’s missing out Why do I feel like I’m missing out? When everybody’s missing out What have I been up to? Clearly not as much as you I look at my life and I wonder what I’m doing wrong Will I follow suit? Try to be a Mother soon I’m under pressure from the ticking clock I question is this what I want? Is this what I want? Everybody is missing out So why do I feel like I’m missing out When everybody’s missing out Some other life Some other life Why do we think we’re missing Why do we think we’re missing Why do we think we’re missing Why do we think we’re missing out Why do we think we’re missing Why do we think we’re missing Why do we think we’re missing Why do we think we’re missing out

Society 05:01
What am I doing with my life? I feel like I should be hitting some kind of mark The man, the house, the car But it all feels kinda off Outside walking the streets at night Trying to get these fears out of my mind You don't know what it's like Trying to please people all the time I've always done exactly what I'm told But that ain't gonna work for me no more I blame it on Society Trying to tell me who I'm supposed to be Why they always gotta put these clothes on me The ones that care the most well they aren't even close to me I blame it on Society I need a break from this anxiety I just want someone to love me quietly For who I am for real and not for who I try to be I blame it on Society Sittin in a luke warm bath blowin bubbles, thinkin razor thoughts My body's achin I'm all alone I call you up and I cry for home But what is home anymore? What is this life we're looking for? I feel I want to make it known that I might disappoint you And I'm sorry if I do I've always done exactly what I'm told But that ain't gonna work for me no more I blame in on Society Trying to tell me who I'm supposed to be Why they always gotta put these clothes on me The ones that care the most well they aren't even close to me I've always done exactly what I'm told But that ain't gonna work for me no more I blame in on Society Trying to tell me who I'm supposed to be Why they always gotta put these clothes on me The ones that care the most well they aren't even close to me I blame it on Society I need a break from this anxiety I just want someone to love me quietly For who I am for real and not for who I try to be I blame it on Society

Island 04:05
No harm done No you can do no wrong But you are not your own Island You gotta land on either side So give us something Give us something We don't really need much from you to keep us running Hunt gather by day don't need you to keep us coming You can hear well enough to hear my call Piece it together baby on your own You can hear well enough to hear my call Piece it together you'll be seeing it all You can hear well enough to hear my call Piece it together baby on your own You can hear well enough to hear my call Piece it together you'll be seeing it all You think we'll grow? Still there are things we don't know Cause we are not a known Island We've never swum those shores We've never swum those shores We don't really need much from you to keep us running Hunt gather by day don't need you to keep us coming

Mountains 03:47
In my bed pull up the sheet Hoping this time, I go straight to sleep Does not appear in the light of day Nocturnal creature this bird of prey Hosting mountains on my shoulders x 4 Dozing off nearly asleep I host the trigger I queue the kick It's not terror it's terrifying It's not frightened, it's frightening I'll lie awake x 6 Hosting mountains on my shoulders They're heavy tonight Mountains on my shoulders Hold me tonight Mountains on my shoulders they're heavy tonight (I know you'll be gone by tomorrow) Mountains on my shoulders, hold me tonight (I know you'll be gone by tomorrow)

Suzie 06:10
Deep in summer, summer night Windows open sorting the flies Same temperature in as outside Time to wander down the mountain side Onto the main road, lit by the moon Our conversation is this nights tune Heat rising up from our shoes The earth's not cooling anytime soon I think I hear a car That engine noise is coming fast I think I hear a car Don't let Suzie run ahead, don't let Suzie run ahead We squat down in the bush below To make sure we can't be seen by the road We're still calling for her to come to our side I can feel the panic, the whites of my mother's eyes The cars headlights growing brighter still It's peaked the crest, it's coming on down the hill Swipes by so fast as we hold our breaths Hearts pumping fast through the walls of our chest Return to black, except the moon and the devil tail light Hoping she'll return sometime in the night Please do not slow down Keep moving one hundred by the hour Please do not slow down Keep moving one hundred by the hour Please do not slow down Don't let Suzie run ahead

Awake inside of me The lion has been sleeping Imprisoned now it's free Has over thrown the Empire And yes I've been reborn I can't see past my own walls Into the silver lining Oh won't you come along x4 They're just human you know And they do not think ill of you Those projections you show are unnecessary too There’s dimensions that you can't see You only see what you wanna see All that is required is for you to set you free Oh won't you come along x4 Stand up, stand up It's you you see who's walking out the door Ulysses is walking out the door

I'll unlock the vaults One at a time I know it will divide us For a little time I'll unlock the vault I'll spin the wheel Heave open that door Let's see what you got Down, you've been so down Carrying that weight Why don't you throw it away? Bound, by this your bound Why don't you throw it away? I know it hurts I know it hurts so let’s be rid of it I know it hurts I know it hurts so let’s be rid of it Unlock the vaults One at a time Let's take out the trash Lover of mine Unlock the vaults Throw me a line Let's take out the trash Lover of mine Sound, you make that sound I know it means You don't have to say nothin to me What we've found way down Doesn't need to stay Let's fucking throw it away I know it hurts I know it hurts so let’s be rid of it I know it hurts I know it hurts so let’s be rid of it Unlock the vaults One at a time Let's take out the trash Lover of mine Unlock the vaults Throw me a line Let's take out the trash Lover of mine

Sketched out a draft It was a pretty picture Needed some love But we were running on empty You and I had it all in front of us We just didn't know Brewing in parallel Pretending everything was fine Something felt ill Not your fault, not mine We felt the push from the outside It didn't feel right to live that kind of life We are the clear air after the storm The rain has washed away all of the dust That sucked the life out of us Took out the stain But it still left a mark A constant reminder Our little piece of art Will be one of many more Here's to many more We are the clear air after the storm The rain has washed away all of the dust We are the clear air after the storm The rain has washed away all of the dust That sucked the life out of us, The life out of us The life out of us No one needs us here we are still young Got all that we need here we are still young We are the clear air after the storm The rain has washed away all of the dust We are the clear air after the storm The rain has washed away all of the dust That sucked the life out of us The life out of us

Long time coming No time to waste This is what we've wanted, wanted Don't make me choose between this and her face Long time running, Blindly joining the dots together This is what we wanted, wanted Don't make us choose between this and his face Try not to look beyond where the eye can see All you have is all you need All you have is all you need Take a deep breath Take a deep breath All you have is all you need All you have is all you need
