V1: Left here to contemplate what the poets really mean When they spout their sonnets About love, hate, and everything in between V2: My tears cried and cried Though they don’t mean a thing All that’s left is the music sprung from consequence of these dreams How I want just to see the end of bad things Copyright 2016 R.

Away I Go 03:19
V1: What a lovely dream before it fell apart All those lovely things you said would break my heart And I was wrong, you were right Can't separate the truth from all your pretty lies Chorus: Away I go into the darkness Away I go I turn from all this Cannot cope with love and madness Away I go so I don't tell you to go V2: What a lovely speech, you rehearsed it so well What a lovely act with your show and tell I thought I knew who you really were But when the curtains fell what had seemed so real disappeared Chorus: You left me crumbling in the darkness I had to turn away from all this Pretend I'm strong and that you're worthless Away I go so I don't tell you to go Outro: Just like before I fell I knew deep down inside Somehow you knew exactly what key to turn on my insides Just like before I fell I knew it'd fall apart Maybe I love just to love and earn a broken heart Copyright 2016 R. Perry/HER Records Inc/Socan/SAC

V1: Had a dream, had a drowning dream I was in a river of blame All wanting a piece of me without knowing who I am Quick to judge and quick to defend Quick to tell me I'm the one in the deep end Prechorus: They love to hate. Love to lie. Love to try and keep us all high V2: Had a dream, had a drowning dream Same dream as before No one really gives a damn about anything that anyone else stands for Try so hard to stay aground All they want is to push me back down Bridge: They want me six feet underground I won't stop spitting at their sound They tried to cut me down to size I see right through their weak disguise And I won't back down. No! V3: I've had my dreams and I've had nightmares Everything in the end Tells me to keep pushing on even when it feels I've got no friends They tear me down to get themselves ahead They're the ones who are being mislead Outro: I reach to the skies and call out your name I reach to the skies in vain And it feels like heaven's so far away Copyright 2016 R. Perry/HER Records Inc/Socan/SAC Homage to Offspring's "Gone Away"; Natalie Imbruglia's "City".

Empty 02:57
V1: I want more than this I wanna feel the passion in a kiss I wanna know what it’s like To live V2: I want more than me I wanna dare to realize all my dreams I wanna know what it’s like To exist Chorus: But all I see Is your cloud raining down on me And all I feel Is empty V3: I want more than hate I wanna feel the light upon my face I wanna know what it’s like To forgive V4: I want more than you Tainting each and every thing I do I wanna know what it’s like To let go Bridge: So empty, so empty yeah So empty, so empty I feel like I have lost my way With no map to get back where I came from Outro: I want more than this I wanna know what it’s like to live Copyright 2016 R. Perry/HER Records Inc/Socan/SAC

Easy Prey 03:47
V1: Wanna get away to another place Where the sun still shines Where true love remains V2: Wanna dream today of another face That shows the world the truth One that I can embrace Chorus: Cause I’ve been searching too long for all the answers But all the wisdom is gone And in its place we’re spoonfed lies and lies and hate And I won’t fall for that game So if you’re feeling the same Don’t be easy prey V3: Wanna get away for another taste One that cuts me deep One that you can’t fake V4: Wanna dream today of another fate One where no one kills One where no one hates Bridge: I’ve opened up my eyes to feel like I’ve gone blind Living in world that can’t make up its mind I’ve opened up my eyes to feel like I’ve gone blind Living in a world that’s so, that’s so, that’s so (p/m) clearly dying Clearly Outro: Are you happy this way? Cause I’ve been going insane The lies and lies and lies and hate I don’t wanna live this way So if you’re feeling the same Don’t be easy prey Don’t be easy Copyright 2016 R. Perry/HER Records Inc/Socan/SAC

Arm's Length 02:11
V1: I don’t believe in using the words I love you For using such words only cheapens my heart And so instead I would rather just show you How the touch of your hand turns me so numb V2: I don’t believe in trying to control you For if you want me, it’s up to you to show me so I know I am one of many who know you So let’s not play games or make plans for unknown Chorus: Times in the future Let’s not define we’re together In time, in the future I don’t want to be her, I don’t want you as him V3: I don’t believe in using the words I hate you For using such words only proves there’s still care And so instead I would rather just ignore When things fall apart, how empty I feel V4: The problem it seems is that you want to own me If I felt the same, I would’ve make my case known You should know that you’re not my one and only So let’s not pretend or make plans for unknown Chorus: Times in the future Do we have to define we’re together? In time, in the future Why can’t we stay just the way that we are? V5: I don’t believe in using the words I love you For using such words leads to heartbreak and pain And so instead I would rather just hold you At my arm’s length Copyright 2016 R.

Close 03:57
V1: Away from me Away from me Away from me, I say When I can’t handle this V2: Stay next to me Stay next to me Stay next to me and pray That we’ll get through this V3: Keep loving me Keep loving me Keep loving me the day I gave myself to you V4: Away from me Away from me Away from me, I say When I couldn’t want you More close V5: Debating me Debating me Me and my ways When you feel overwhelmed V6: Chasing me Chasing me Chasing me to lay down In your arms V7: Believe in me Believe in me Believe in me, you say When I can’t believe in myself V8: Debating me Debating me Me and my ways When you can’t imagine life without Chorus: Close my eyes Wipe the tears away Hold me like you mean it Don’t let go Take my fears away We just have to prove it On our own Don’t let go V9: Against the grain Against the grain Against the grain, we stray Together in this world V10: In difference In difference In difference, we find Everything we need V11: Gets hard sometimes Gets hard sometimes Gets hard sometimes on us both Baby you know why V12: Against the grain Against the grain Against the grain, we take Each step out in Outro: Back in Don’t let go Copyright 2016 R. Perry/HER Records Inc/Socan/SAC

Alive 02:23
V1: I wanna sing to you A little lullaby Not too sure of the words Just seem to pass through my mind I wanna sing to you But I’ve lost control Can’t seem to find my voice Let alone my soul Pre: Feeling so lost inside With all this on my mind It gets so hard sometimes Just to stay in time Chorus: But when I sing to you My little lullaby I know that I’m safe here babe Never felt so alive V2: I wanna fight the stars Just to seal our fate I wanna fight the words We’re both too scared to say I wanna fight the world So we can live our way I wanna fight for you each and every day Pre: But I just worry so Seem to lose control I try to run away It’s easier that way Chorus: But when you kiss my face You seal our fate I know that I’m safe here babe And I’m alive Copyright 2016 R. Perry/HER Records Inc/Socan/SAC

Darkest Days 05:45
V1: Falling to pieces is something I’ve mastered I’ve learned the art of attracting disasters For all that I give, I get bad in return It’s love that I share, only hate’s to be earned V2: I don’t remember when things changed on me I was never one to stay so unhappy Why is it so hard to live out our dreams? Why does the world want to break me? I break in my Chorus: Darkest days I feel like I am so lost on my way In my darkest days The world holds me out, there on display In my darkest days Nothing can make it all go away In my darkest days V3: So I pick myself back up over and over All the pain that I’m feeling, it’s hard to stay sober While I appear to be so strong on the surface Inside every word, every glance makes me nervous V4: I don’t remember when things changed on me I was never one to stay so unhappy Why is it so hard to live out our dreams? Why does the world want to break me? I break in my Bridge: Sometimes my mind just goes running in circles I can’t help feel like I’m against every hurdle Sometimes I’d upset and I don’t know why I need you to be patient, to help me get by Sometimes I’m scared of my very own thoughts Sometimes I need to believe in a god Sometimes I pretend that everything’s okay But all the time, I need you, in all that I face Outro: And I was wandering in the rain Masks of life, feeling insane Swift and sudden fall from grace Sunny days seem far away Here abandoned and ashamed An Armageddon of the brain Darkest Days In my darkest days…I need you Copyright 2016 R. Perry/HER Records Inc/Socan/SAC
10.
V1: It’s easy to be so young and naïve It’s easy to see all things as you want to see It’s easy to need what you want to be So damn easy Prechorus: But when that mindset starts to shatter Everything you thought becomes so scattered You’ll find yourself at odds with those you love and trust You’ll find yourself at odds with your own self Chorus: Tell me, what am I fighting for? When all the things of which I was sure Are nothing more than dreams I tell ya it’s heartbreaking Sweet innocence was pure I wish that there was a cure For growing up, and growing old And learning truths…I wish I was never told V2: It’s easy to love before they break your heart It’s easy to think there’s a plan from the start It’s easy to live your life without a care Too damn easy Prechorus: And when that mindset starts to unwind You want nothing more than just to crawl inside Erase the knowledge that led to your own self-destruct Erase the memory of childhood things Outro: Tell me why don’t you see when you look at me? Tell me why don’t you feel when you’re touching me? You say that you hear, but are you listening? You say that you care, but you’re still giving in Tell me why don’t you taste when you’re experiencing? Tell me why don’t you breathe if you are living? You say that you’re real, but all the symptoms show The lights are out, your story ends when the curtains close Copyright 2016 R. Perry/HER Records Inc/Socan/SAC

The End 02:41
V1: It's 2 am the world's asleep Hard, fast and loud does my heart beat Trying to figure out just how to proceed I check the locks, climb into bed Wish that I could turn off my silly head So much thinking about just what I need Prechorus: For oh so long I've lent my soul Got slashed and burned, never made whole And now I've reached a crossroads with a fork For oh so long this is all I've known Never really had the opportunity to grow Beyond just what you see me for V2: It's 2 pm the world's awake Hard, fast and loud does my heart ache Trying to figure out just what to create I turn the knob and look outside Can't remember the last time I felt alive So much thinking about Is this worth all the tears I've cried? Bridge: And I don't know anymore And I sure as fuck don't feel like I did before And I don't wanna say goodbye And I don't wanna admit I failed but tried Nothing left worth fighting for, nothing left but to close the door Chorus: This is goodbye This is the end There is no chance to make amends Copyright 2016 R. Perry/HER Records Inc/Socan/SAC
