Track Name: Freeway
You drove me down the freeway
We drove around for four days
I heard the sound of a freight train
I covered my ears and sang

You came around in three days
You lost and found your suitcase
I made it down to the door way
To cover your eyes and sing
Whoa....

Every love I thought was real has turned into a battlefield
There's no such thing as being healed we're both left bleeding

You shoved me down the staircase
On the rebound I slapped your face
You stared me down while I stood in place
I covered my eyes and sang
Whoa...

You circled round my personal space
I looked around for a quick escape
We heard the sound of the end of the race
We covered our ears and ran singing singing ahh..

Every love I thought was real has turned into a battlefield
There's no such thing as being healed we're both left bleeding

And it's just the same old game
Love turns into war again
And as usual I realized too late
That I had already been tied to the stake
And I'm swearing I'll never love anyone
I'm cursing the day I let you in
I'm skeptical of any good in man
And I'm running away, I'm running away, I'm running away....
Track Name: The Undeserving
Faithfulness ain't the stablest
Temptations over templates to renovate my face a bit
Serenity, wait for it
It'll never be a basic wish
I wish I could paper mâché my way through the phases
And be consistent in relationships
Can't always listen to acquaintances
With the strange condition that my brain is in

Will you accept me, when I fumble my humbleness?
Wonder if you have already discovered this
But under the covers, I'm suffering
Dropping the grace you wholeheartedly trust me with

Is this nobility?
Or is this all talk and no ability?
And don't pity me
Just rid me of the toxins
Give me any option, I'm boxed in



I spent a couple seasons faking it
You know the glossy cover lies and says I'm making it
But my panic cries inside to be comforted
And I feel my strength decreasing as I start to think that

I can't keep this face on anymore
But I'm terrified that your love is conditional

Will you carry me when I can't lift head
I wanna make you proud but I can't take another step
Grace, they say is for the undeserving
But can it be for me when I don't feel I'm worth it

I don't remember why I'm trying to prove
Seems like the things I'm holding tightest are the ones I should lose
I'm standing stubbornly when I should move
I thought I had this figured out but I'm so confused

It's so hard for me to admit oh
Is it a race, I dunno
Is it a game, I dunno
A charade, I dunno
I'm afraid I need to know
Track Name: Priceless
We wanted the same things for a moment
But the situation was loaded
Suddenly I didn’t know where we were going
Suddenly the eyes that desired me were raging

And man I think I lied as much as you did
But that’s what made it perfect for a while
I knew that we would crumble just like you did
But that’s what made me give it all I had

Mama had to tell me over a million times
Never doubt the truth inside your heart

Baby girl you are a pearl and you know it
And nobody else can make you shine you gotta own it
And if anybody tries to bring you down you better promise
Promise me you’ll run away, run from it

You wanted to change me into a trophy
When I was already a gem you didn’t see
Suddenly my tear filled eyes started glistening
Suddenly I knew the truth you were avoiding

And man I knew my value more than you did
That’s what made me fight you every day
Man you wanted to take me for granted
That’s what made me finally run away

Mama had to tell me over a million times
Never doubt the truth inside your heart

Baby girl you are a pearl and you know it
And nobody else can make you shine you gotta own it
And if anybody tries to bring you down you better promise
Promise me you’ll run away, run from it

I’m still growing because of you And I’m still better after you
And now I’m coming back to the basics Remember one thing never changes
I will never believe I’m worthless Because the truth is I am priceless
Track Name: Changing Lanes
Woke up cold I don’t know where I am
The only sound an unfamiliar clock ticking
And the sunlight has never been harsher
The memories have never been sharper

Promised you that I had made a change
But all I’ve been doing is changing lanes
I traded one vice for another
Your advice in one ear out the other 


So I’m staring into space
And I know that it is almost too late
But where in the world am I gonna find peace
I think you said it started on my knees

I’m searching, and I’m desperate
While all the lost souls around me say forget it
But I’ll never give up the hope for something better
While the little voice in my heart says come and get it
With a little step of faith maybe I’ll make it
While all the lost souls around me think I’m breaking
Something in my heart says change is coming
Just don’t give up while you're tired waiting

The hope that I had yesterday is gone
I can’t count the ways that I’ve gone wrong
The list of my enemies grows
And every new doorway is closed

So I’m staring into space
And I know that it is almost too late
But where in the world am I gonna find peace
I think you said it started on my knees


I’m searching, and I’m desperate
While all the lost souls around me say forget it
But I’ll never give up the hope for something better
While the little voice in my heart says come and get it
With a little step of faith maybe I’ll make it
While all the lost souls around me think I’m breaking
Something in my heart says change is coming
Just don’t give up while you're tired waiting


Time doesn’t mean what I thought it did
Hope doesn’t come on a rocket ship
But it’s not too late to turn around and take another road
Now I’m awake and I won’t listen to the shadows
I’m gonna follow you wherever you go
Yes I will follow you wherever you go
Track Name: Iron Things
You’ve seen hard times
You’ve seen unspeakable things
You’ve seen heart aches
You’ve seen unbreakable things
Crack and shatter Under heavy heavy weights
Crack and shatter Into countless flakes

The things that made you stronger are the things you thought would break you
The things that made you weaker are the things you thought would save you

This one’s for the moment when you go through the fire
When you’re pulled to pieces and you can’t go further
I will hold on to you til you get back together
I will sing over you until your heart is better

You’ve seen day dreams Fly away on silver wings
While your heart strings Are anchored to iron things
And you used to sing Louder than everything
And you still sing Overpowered by clamoring

The things that made you stronger are the things you thought would break you
The things that made you weaker are the things you thought would save you

This one’s for the moment when you go through the fire
When you’re pulled to pieces and you can’t go further
I will hold on to you til you get back together
I will sing over you until your heart is better

Nothing takes your strength away like love
Love will push down and pull you up
Love will take your best and leave you dry
Love with make you rich then rob you blind
Right now it hurts but wait and you will find
Love is what heals everything in time
