Track Name: Still Ill
Sick of not being taken seriously
Tired of doing what you're told
Finally you're old enough
Then you've had enough of being old
Slowly growing but you don't even know
Trying to rip your shadow off your feet
Body's bigger but my brain's the same
Is it strange that that is so strange to me

I want to be young with you while I can
Be new to things I would never do based on who I am

Dying's kind of like being born again
You can see everything but don't know what it is
Maybe we thought wrong all along
Maybe we didn't know anything
Track Name: Chasing Ghosts
Chasing ghosts
Hunting the dead
Distorted light
Fading lives
Track Name: A New Place
Living in a brand new place
Summer nights looks like days
But I know it's just a phase
Yeah I know it's just a phase

And I know it's just

You wake up before the alarm
Day's are OK but the nights
Are way too long
It was great until it all went wrong

But I know it was just nothing at all

Shadow on the mountain
Content with nothing
Mind is working overtime
Trying to dismantle it
Am I cured even though
I know it's just a placebo

But I guess in the long wrong
We'll both be nothing
But it still hurts to think
If that's what you think of me
You're not cured and I know
You can't commit, you can't let go

And I know it's just
Track Name: Pace
I'm gonna lose my head
Start to get red
Lay in bed and waste my life away
Bleed through the page
I feel your pain
Because it's all inside ya

One fourth of my soul
Is now forever yours
I've got no choice to make
We're running at the exact same pace
I'll take your word for anything you say

One fourth of my soul
Is now forever yours
I've got no choice to make
We're running at the exact same pace
I'll take your word for anything you

I'm gonna lose my head
Start to get red
Lay in bed and waste my life away
Bleed through the page
I feel your pain
Because it's all inside your brain

Waterbirds flying in a night rainbow
They have nowhere to live, nor to go
Swimming in the sky to survive
Cannot look them in the eye
