Track Name: Set Me Free - Afterthought Sessions
I’m in the constant struggle of
Not letting my head ruin every single thing I have around me
How am I supposed to get through the day
Knowing I’m a burden on everyone around me?

Let it be, let it be, let it be
There’s no use fixing me

Endlessly, you steal the life from me
I know it’s over
Set me free, or be the light in me
I know it’s over

This is no longer insecurity
This is my mind split against me
I’m passed the breaking point, just let it be
I have no purpose
No need for sympathy

Let it be, let it be, let it be
There’s no use fixing me

Endlessly, you steal the life from me
I know it’s over
Set me free, or be the light in me
I know it’s over

Let it be, let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be
Let it be there’s no use fixing me

Endlessly, you steal the life from me
I know it’s over
Set me free, or be the light in me
I know it’s over
Track Name: Thoughts In Your Head - Afterthought Sessions
Forward progress
At least that’s what I thought I built
Up until now I know these walls
Just hid me from everything I ever felt

Save me from every word I speak
And for the sake of my well being
Just let me be

Carry on it’s what they all said
Bury all those thoughts in your head
Carry on it’s all in your head

Carry on it’s what they all said
Carry on or you’re better off dead
Carry on it’s all in your head

I pushed everyone I need away
I guess I let my pride get in the way

Save me from every thought I think
And for the sake of my well being just let me be

Carry on it’s what they all said
Bury all those thoughts in your head
Carry on it’s all in your head

Carry on it’s what they all said
Carry on or you’re better off dead
Carry on it’s all in your head
Track Name: Giving In - Afterthought Sessions
I’m finding details within the seams
Priority slips away from me
Yet unaware of what my presence brings
I lose my grip, I’m giving in

I think I’m starting to lose myself
Mistakes repeating inside of my head
Our faults are forcing us from ourselves
I keep repeating, I know this never works

I’m shedding weakness I’ve kept unseen
To let myself breathe without hurting
I’ll bite my tongue and let it bleed
To ease the pain of those around me

I think I’m starting to lose myself
Mistakes repeating inside of my head
Our faults are forcing us from ourselves
I keep repeating, I know this never works

Breathe easy, there’s something more
Retrace the steps that we’ve made before
I’ll ease this pain and find something to live for
Something to live for

I think I’m starting to lose myself
Mistakes repeating inside of my head
Our faults are forcing us from ourselves
I keep repeating, I know this never works
Track Name: The Real You - Afterthought Sessions
You built a platform to reach more
But can’t contribute to the world you owe
They don’t see real heart, and that’s for sure
I’ve seen it all, I’ve seen it all, I’ve seen it all before

I’ll never be, never be like you
You’re temporary, I see the real you
I’ll never think, never think like you
You turned your worth into waste

You’re buying into it
Can’t bare the thought of it
How can’t it make you sick?
I can’t tell what you see
Or your mentality
You threw away responsibility

You built a platform to preach war
But can’t distribute what you’re fighting for
And it does nothing but make me sick
I’ll never be, i’ll never be apart of it

I’ll never be, never be like you
You’re temporary, I see the real you
I’ll never think, never think like you
You turned your worth into waste

I’ll never be like you
I'll never think like you
I see the truth
I see the real you

I’ll never be, never be like you
You’re temporary, I see the real you
I’ll never think, never think like you
You turned your worth into waste
