Track Name: I Was An Iceberg
i was an iceberg, waiting for nothing
silently sitting in the sea
but then he came along, that titanic of a man
and crashed right into me

now i float among the fire and wreck
of the love we lost, the life we had
looking for a lifeboat, lingering in the cold
our greatest story, never told

i was an iceberg, waiting for nothing
shifting oh so far away from shore
but then he came along, shined his sunlight and then
melted me to my core

now i float among the land and sea
wandering through what's left of me
hoping to stumble on some solid ground
our greatest love was never found

i was an iceberg
more to me than what you've heard
i was an iceberg
i was an iceberg

if only i could have froze that moment in time
the moment when you were mine
if only i could have froze that moment in time
the moment when you were mine

i am an iceberg
Track Name: Bloodstream
you made your way into my lungs
the smoke filled them, it stung
you took my flame when you left town
now ii just smolder to the ground

but no matter how much nicotine in my bloodstream
can't make me forget about you
but no matter how much nicotine in my bloodstream
can't make me forget about you

you can't break through these darkened skies
you can see it in the color of my eyes
you stole my sunlight when you skipped town
i thought you'd always be shining down

but no matter how much thc in my bloodstream
can't make me forget about you
but no matter how much thc in my bloodstream
can't make me forget about you

can't make me forget about you
so many ways, don't make me choose
can't make me forget about you
what else is there to do?

but no matter how much of you is in my bloodstream
can't make me get to you
but no matter how much of you is in my bloodstream
can't make me get to you

i can't cut you out
Track Name: Hesitate
don't tell me it will be okay
'cause you don't know
what the hell to say
when i can't see a way through this

so you slam the door shut
and i run out of my mind
i'm doing this, i'm doing this
you can't stop me this time

if i hesitate, it's only because
there's a place in my head
where i believe what you said
how you'd always try to understand
and see this through until the end
would you still care if i took it all?
i want to so bad, but i won't
but what if ii should?

i don't care too much of what i'll leave behind
'cause i let everyone else go
just to make you mine

so what do ii have to lose
when you're all i had left?
i'm through with this, i'm through with this
i'll put this thing to rest

if i hesitate, it's only because
there's a place in my head
where i believe what you said
how you'd always try to understand
and see this through until the end
would you still care if i took it all?
i want to so bad, but i won't
but what if ii should?

maybe i should have been there
maybe i should have been there
for you
maybe i should have been there
so i could make you hesitate
too

if i hesitate, it's only because
there's a place in my head
where i believe what you said
how you'd always try to understand
and stay with me until the end
would you still care if i took it all?
i want to so bad, but i won't
but what if ii should?

i won't
but what if i should?
Track Name: Waves
running uphill
swimming upstream
that's what it feels like
these waves crash over me

i have to ride this out
like i always do

no middle ground for me
up or down
which will it be?

running on empty
can't fill the gaps
floating above it all
then meet the ground, collapse

can i sit this one out
just for today?

no middle ground for me
up or down
which will it be?
the borderline is all i see
high or low
i don't know what i need

i wanna scream out for relief
and i know i can't control these changes
like the changing of the seasons
steam, water, into ice
riding the waves in and out of light

no middle ground for me
up or down
which will it be?
the borderline is all i see
high or low
i don't know what i need

high or low
i don't know what I need
high or low
i don't know what i need
Track Name: 27
is it a conspiracy
or a happen of circumstance?
a coincidence that took away the youth
of many more years to be had?

and i know it's self-destructive
to think that i belong
in the ground, in the clouds
at this age i am

i thought i was like AMY
and ii guess maybe i still am
except no one's trying to make me go
i wanna go myself instead

i thought i was just like her
and i don't think that's so wrong
everyone would finally listen
only after i'm gone

everyone would finally love me
only after i'm gone
