Track Name: Leaving Our Bodies
We're leaving our bodies just for a while,
We're climbing the mountains that we built inside our minds,
Floating on empty words,
Making our little voices heard,
Just trying to figure out how life works,
We're leaving to stop the hurt

She was standing in the black smoke,
Struggling to hold her head up,
She was gasping as she choked,
Still she kept dancing on the flames 'til she fell down

Every now and then it feels hopeless,
Everyone has days like this,
But every voice is telling you it's worth it,
Something good in every miss

We're leaving our bodies just for a while,
We're climbing the mountains that we built inside our minds,
Floating on empty words,
Making our little voices heard,
Just trying to figure out how life works,
We're leaving to stop the hurt

He was lost inside a red fire,
Wisps were clawing at his throat,
He just tried to stay alive,
As they left marks that scarred like tiny ropes

Every now and then it feels hopeless,
Everyone has days like this,
And every voice is telling you it's worth it,
Something good in every miss

We're leaving our bodies just for a while,
We're climbing the mountains that we built inside our minds,
Floating on empty words,
Making our little voices heard,
Just trying to figure out how life works,
We're leaving to stop the hurt

We follow the only paths we see,
Get lost and bloodied,
Told not to worry,
Unable to live and be truly free,
Our souls are chained to our fragile frames

We're leaving our bodies just for a while,
We're climbing the mountains that we built inside our minds,
Floating on empty words,
Making our little voices heard,
Just trying to figure out how life works,
We're leaving to stop
We're leaving to stop the hurt
We're leaving to stop the hurt
Track Name: Rise
I sank deep into a lake of green,
Bound by the reeds of the water,
I begged them for my release,
They let me be,
My heart was light with relief,
Then I was blinded by darkness,
Frightened but gratefully free

I rise meekly,
And I breathe deeply,
Finally waking from my sleep

I leave here on winds that steal my fears,
They carry me gently over the landscape as I disappear,
I don't know how I can let go and move now,
But every anchor is being cast off,
And I'm just floating around

I rise meekly,
And I breathe deeply,
Finally waking from my sleep

The forest peaks catch me and lull me to sleep,
Safety in arm-like branches will heal me to take the leap

I rise,
And I breathe deeply,
Finally waking from my sleep,
Finally able to be free
Track Name: Dumb
I was so scared,
Black night and misty air,
So unprepared,
Held my own hand to protect myself from where I was headed

I'm dumb,
Every word on Earth has fled my tongue,
I crawl although everyday I pray to run,
I'm dumb,
Left broken and numb,
I am dumb,
Cry for the shadow I've become

The night it speaks,
I hear words carried on the breeze,
They comfort me,
A new day calls but my open mouth is still burdened with silence

I'm dumb,
Every word on Earth has fled my tongue,
I crawl although everyday I pray to run,
I'm dumb,
Left broken and numb,
I am dumb,
Cry for the shadow I've become

The last words you spoke to me,
Loop inside my mind like birdsong in the trees,
I cannot speak,
Can't describe the loss of all that I believed

Dumb
Dumb

I'm dumb,
Every word on Earth has fled my tongue,
I crawl although everyday I pray to run,
I'm dumb,
Left broken and numb,
I am dumb,
Cry for the shadow I've become
