Track Name: The Current
The current pulls me away from the shore
A subtle sign that I cannot ignore
To wash away all that I have done
To start again like I have just begun

I need an anchor for my heart
To hold me when I fall apart
Keep me from unforgiving stone
On which I wreck when I’m alone

Wouldn’t you run to the waves?
Wouldn’t you wish them to destroy all your mistakes?
Track Name: Hiding from the Sea
I guess I'm missing the point of it
I guess I've taken it all for me
Now in my failure I've lost myself
And now I'm giving it all to the sea

I hope the waves will rip into me
I hope they wreck and destroy all I've been
To take all my mystery
To separate my soul from my skin

Cause I've been hiding from the sea too long
And I've been left alone and beached too long
Cause I've been begging for the ocean,
I've been crying for the shore
To take this mess that I've created
And make me whole once more

I've feigned my strength and ability
Misrepresentative soul I have built
I've strayed away from stability
And now the blood of the world I have spilt
The world should ache in my deceit
The sky should crumble and fold for my skin
Oceans should rise up and swallow me
This punishment should unfold for my sin

Oh don't you try to save me right now
Cause I'm lost

Cause I've been hiding from the sea too long
And I've been left alone and beached too long
Cause I've been begging for the ocean,
I've been crying for the shore
To take this mess that I've created
And make me whole once more
Track Name: I Can't Live Again
I can’t seem to get it off my mind anymore
All the things I had are now lost
If everyone around me seems to go their own way
But I’ve fallen across the lonely road

I truly want a remedy to make my heart warm with a touch
So how can I be here tonight?
I’ve waited every moment for the quickest fix to make it stick
So how can I be here tonight?

Cause all I want is to be clear
But every day you call my name
And I don’t want you now
If every day is waiting for your hunger to consume again
Then I don’t want to be here now

I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about someone I think I lost
And how I could never feel at home

I want a remedy to make my heart warm
Make it feel gold again
And I’m coming for you now

Oh don’t you try to make me stay again
Give in
Don’t you try to make this hard again
Cause I’m coming out

I don’t want to say “Too late, I can’t live again”
But I could never try so hard to fight

Tell me I’m wrong
Cause I hate what I’ve done
I don’t want to be here anymore
But could I ever know your love for sure

So tell me I’m wrong
Track Name: Exhausted Forgiveness
I think I cracked my head when I fell off the deep
I think my heart was numb when you found me and I was asleep
So I let you just pass me by

Beg on my knees for release as she sings “I don’t love you anymore. I can’t love you anymore”

Exhausted forgiveness for my love that’s been incomplete
Discover my shipwrecked heart
Salvage all that you can keep

Maybe there’s something left in side
A semblance of good I could no hide
Where would I run when from your love I could not hide?

So I run to her

And it’s so cold
