Track Name: See Things Through
Should I play my hand or should I take it slow?
I've probably told you more than you should know
I tried my best to show that I was wise
I'd always guessed that you would see through my disguise

'Cause in my mind I would try to review
All of the times I was talking to you
A search for something to show you would give it a try
I just had to know what it would lead to

I always kept an eye out for a kind
You could call them nothing but truly good finds
Was it helpful that I had been known?
Or was it something I should have left well alone

'Cause at the time I never knew
And all the while I thought it was you
I was not lying when I said we'd give it a try
I just had to know what it would lead to

Don't mistake the loud for the wise
We had a chance to open our eyes
These expectations we uphold
It's no wonder we feel so old

A vision of stories I had yet to write
Stood like a beacon in the dark of night
And gone were the things that I had felt before
With silent surrender I could finally end the war

'Cause deep inside something grew
And I had found what I needed to do
I was not joking when I said I'd give it a try
Because you know I like to see things through
Track Name: As I Go Along
It seems to me I'd one day find
There's nothing out there, but my mind
Just places that I could not be
With nothing more for me to see

All of the faces I hid behind
Buried so they could not find
I'm making it up as I go along
The only thing that stops me from

Feeling wrong
Where I'm told that I belong

Beneath the surface I fell into
Landing so hard, I broke right through
Imagine the day that we do entwine
Feeling the chills up from my spine

Working it out as I go along
Fear is the thing that stops you from

Being strong
Until you find a place
Where you belong

Being strong
Until you find a place
Where you belong
Track Name: Worldly Someone
I never believed there’s a choice in front of me
Attaching to every single outcome I could dream
Pleading ignorance while avoiding what I feel
I fell into the spinning wheel
Now I’ve begun

A Worldly Someone

I broke out of hell, there were ghosts around me
Looking beyond the animals and the man I could be
There’s a heavenly feel to the Gods above me
I’ve been depending on all of them to some degree
I look to the moon, I am sensing the appeal
So I may leap from the wheel
When I’ve become

No longer someone
Track Name: To Be Loved
I couldn't foresee what they had in mind
When I was taught people are kind
Yet how could one be so inclined
Innocence undermined

I am tired of the line
Down the road it will be fine
When in the matters of the heart
I was broken from the start

This is the hardest part of all
I will not answer when you call
'Cause I've been deceived,
I've been let down and left alone
With this disease
I'm unable to be loved

I see it for it's real size
and grant myself the hope to rise
The safest spaces pulled apart
I am returning to the start

So I will say yes if I must
And treat this as a chance to test my trust
'Cause I've been deceived,
I've been let down and left alone
With this disease
I'm unable to be loved

To be Loved
Track Name: The Gallery
Taking a view that canvass is where we begin
Given a chance to paint the condition we're in
With colour being all that we can't control
Learning to use the tools could be our role

People will say that they aren't the gifted type
A good place to start is a single swipe
Don't ever feel the need to copy a style
You will learn and develop your own in a little while

We need you (to try your best to find)
We need you (that place in your mind)
We need you (before you're left behind)
We need you (while you still have the will and the fight)

We are painting a picture
Of all we tried to be
A colourful impression
Of all that we see
In our mind, in our time
Our attempts to be free
Just remember we need you
To form The Gallery

So give it some time and you'll stand back in awe
When you have suddenly become all that you saw
And with a sense of wonder that's surrounding you now
The form it takes is limited by what you allow

We thank you (and the rest of your kind)
We thank you (for showing us your mind)
We thank you (the blind will lead the blind)
We thank you (without a gift for seeing the light)

You were painting a picture
Of all you tried to be
With an honest impression
It's always been the key
To your mind, to your time
Your attempts to be free
and remember we need you
To form The Gallery.
Track Name: Combine
Are you alone with me,
Or did you wait in line?
Have you got news for me
Of any kind?

I fear what I would see
If I looked behind
There's something haunting me
Controlling my mind

Controlling my mind
We combine

If once I was free
Then was pulled into line
From the fate in front of me
I may well have resigned

But it's nothing new to be
Lost and undefined
Something's been haunting me
Since the beginning of time

Beginning of time
We combine
Track Name: Fantasy
Something's being sold as true
That you were thrown deep into
I did not foresee what they would make me do
The questions that they knew the answer to

I feel it wake me from my dreams
Repeating voices circle me
I am living in a fantasy
Where no one else seems to be
When I lack the strength to disagree

To their faces I would stare
Though at times I was not there
If you repeat, it's not that I don't care
There's only so much attention I can share

All the pieces, I can see
But can't control what's said of me
Am I living out their fantasy?
In a place I will never be
I just lack the will to disagree
Track Name: Glorify
You were burdened by circumstance
Before you realised
Deep inside the emptiness lay
A blessing in the disguise

Do you feel the energy tonight?
Will you find the words to say it right?

It's what you believe
That will make you try
Not what you achieve
But how you apply
For all you concede
Look at what it provides
A short reprieve
Is something to glorify!

There is still the time for us to
Dive into your mind
Paying close attention there's
A meaning we can find

Don't let this be the end of you tonight
Try to find the word's to make it right

It's what you believe
That will make you try
Not what you achieve
But how you apply
For all you concede
Look at what it provides
A short reprieve
Is something to glorify!
