Track Name: Habits
Let me tell me just one thing
You can accomplish anything
If you won’t allow yourself to put up boundaries
Just push yourself a little more
Get your ass right out the door
And you’ll see happy endings aren’t just for stories

Let go, let go!
Of your weakness
Tell yourself that you deserve it
Let go, let go!
It is worth it

Time to crawl outside this tiny box
Stepping over all the lines, where I always used to stop (and give up)
Shook things up and blurred some colors
Until I finally discovered
Life starts outside your comfort zone

You’ll be surprised to know
Just how far you can go
From the point where you thought that the road ended
All it takes is a little strength
To get you on your way again
And you’ll see it will be better than you intended

Let go, let go!
Of your weakness
Tell yourself that you deserve it
Let go let go
It is worth it

Time to crawl outside this tiny box
Stepping over all the lines, where I always used to stop (and give up)
Shook things up and blurred some colors
Until I finally discovered

I need to kick the habit, gotta change my point of view
Alternate my direction, get a taste of something new
And if I finally get there I know that I won’t stay
‘cause it’s not in my nature to wander the same place

Time to crawl outside this tiny box
Stepping over all the lines, where I always used to stop (and give up)
Shook things up and blurred some colors
Until I finally discovered
Life starts outside your comfort zone
Track Name: Chapter Blue
Tuesday morning, 6 am.
No surprise that I’m thinkin’ about you again.
I can’t kick you, try as I might,
Not enough that I dreamt of you all night.
Déjà vu, you’re always here,
But I wish you’d just disappear
FUCK! Just pack your bags and leave.

‘Cause when I’m with you I’m still lonely
And tonight I’m feeling blue
Get out of my head, I don’t need you
I don’t need you

Wednesday evening, still up late
Can’t believe that you forgot our date
I won’t take your shit anymore
Wait a minute while I show you to the door
I’m so done, yeah we are trough
I won’t waste another minute on you
OH, FUCK! Just pack your bags and leave.

‘Cause when I’m with you I’m still lonely
And tonight I’m feeling blue
Get out of my head, I don’t need you
I don’t need you

‘Cause when I’m with you I’m still lonely
And tonight I’m feeling blue
Get out of my head, I don’t need you
I don’t need you
I don’t need you
I don’t need you
Track Name: I Refuse To Sink
I used to hold my guard up
Afraid to stumble and drop
One day I feel like I have it all
The next I’m with my back against the wall

I’ll slam the hammer against these walls
Drag bad memories down the hall
Time to let go of the broken past
So done with always looking back
And no matter what the future holds
I’ll be ready for it -- when it unfolds

So fire all your cheap shots
I will blow away the smoke
When life takes another swing at me
You won’t see me choke
I know that sometimes it’s alright to pretend
But when I’m on the brink (when I'm on the brink)
I refuse to sink

This blame game went on for too long
And all I ever did was wrong
Time to believe in my own mistakes
I will bend but I’ll never break
I don’t care ‘bout what you have to say
I won’t listen to it -- anyway

So fire all your cheap shots
I will blow away the smoke
When life takes another swing at me
You won’t see me choke
I know that sometimes it’s alright to pretend
But when I’m on the brink (when I'm on the brink)
I refuse to sink

Oh for so long
This felt so wrong
You’ve been the anchor holding my head under the water
This isn’t me
Time to break free
I’ll sail my own course, even if it’s bound for disaster

So fire all your cheap shots
I will blow away the smoke
When life takes another swing at me
You won’t see me choke
I know that sometimes it’s alright to pretend
But when I’m on the brink (when I'm on the brink)
I refuse to sink
Track Name: Miss Information
I've wasted all my time time to comprehend
The way you move around me like I'm just not there
Tell me, are you choking on the air I'm breathing?
Now I understand you can be lost for words,
But your awkward silence just make things worse
Is it your ambition to keep me pleading for an answer?

I've had enough of the same old game
Where I talk and all you do is stare at me
Sometimes it feels rewarding to be spoken to instead of speaking
Is this the way you expect me to be?
It's like you've never even known me
The thing about surprises is that you never know what's coming to you

And now it's high time that I speak my mind

You never tell me anything (anything) that's worth mentioning
But suddenly (suddenly) you're telling me it's time to
wake up, break up, make up another storyline
Tell me something different or I swear, it won't be me
You've got me questioning (questioning) every single thing
You promised me (but it seems) the time has come for me to
Step up, speak up, pick up my wasted wonder years
And leave you in the dust, the story's over and I'm out of here!

(Oh-oh-oh-oooh!)
We're at the end of the line, this is a sinking ship
It's the fight of our lives, you can't just run from it (3x)
At the end of the line, it's still a sinking ship, a sinking ship!

You never tell me anything (anything) that's worth mentioning
But suddenly (suddenly) you're telling me it's time to
wake up, break up, make up another storyline
Tell me something different or I swear, it won't be me
You've got me questioning (questioning) every single thing
You promised me (but it seems) the time has come for me to
Step up, speak up, pick up my wasted wonder years
And leave you in the dust, the story's over and I'm out of here!
Track Name: Pick You Up
You’ve got some demons to face
Dragging you down at the waist
I see them pulling you under
But I just want you to know
You don’t have to face this alone
‘Cause we always got each other

Paper planes only soar for a while
But I’ll pick you up and make you smile
When pain comes creeping ‘round your door
And you don’t feel useful anymore
When your brain is locked in a jar
And you’re not the same person by far
I’ll still be here right by your side
To get you through the night

The monsters under your bed
Have found the way to your head
Oh baby I know it’s scary
But don’t stick your face in the sand
‘Cause I will lend you my hand
And that’s not just temporary

Paper planes only soar for a while
But I’ll pick you up and make you smile
When pain comes creeping ‘round your door
And you don’t feel useful anymore
When your brain is locked in a jar
And you’re not the same person by far
I’ll still be here right by your side
To get you through the night

I guess I won’t ask a lot
How many scars that you’ve got
All I want is to fix them
I hope one day I’ll succeed
And put you back on your feet
Seeing that inner smile again

Paper planes only soar for a while
But I’ll pick you up and make you smile
When pain comes creeping ‘round your door
And you don’t feel useful anymore
When your brain is locked in a jar
And you’re not the same person by far
I’ll still be here right by your side
To get you through the night
