Track Name: Insomnia (Feat. Brooke Barootes)
[Verse 1]
There's an ocean in my yard when I look out the window,
There's a black-hole in my room when I turn out the light.
There's a monster under my bed but I can't tell no-one.
I'm wide awake darling, and I'm afraid of the night.

Singing.

There's a storm outside, I refrain to look out the window.
From the movies I've seen, I'd be looking at someone strange.
But the curtain won't hide my room lit up by lightning.
I'm wide awake darling, and I'm afraid of the night.

[Chorus]
Would you wait here darling, baby I can't sleep.
That poster on the wall gives me the creeps.
When we're hand in hand I feel at ease.
You don't have to stay here darling, but stay here 'til I sleep.

Singing.

[Verse 2]
There's a picture in my head, when I close my eyes.
There's a whisper in my ears, and it's inside.
There's a yelling outdoors, and match it, I just might.
I'm wide awake darling, and I'm afraid of the night.

[Chorus]

Singing.
Track Name: Numbers
[Intro]
We all have secrets that we try to hide.
We all have moments that we wanna rewind.
We gave away love, that we'd love to take back.
And we've all left it in the past.

[Verse 1]
I can be the tears on your face, erase me.
You're not afraid, no.
I'm the fears in your head, you gotta face me.
You're not afraid, no.
I can be the one to drive you mad, if you race me.
You're not afraid, no.
A goodbye you never said,
The letter you never kept,
The one you let fade,
The pain goes away, cause–

[Chorus]
We all have secrets that we try to hide.
We all have moments that we wanna rewind.
We gave away love, that we'd love to take back.
And we've all left it in the past.
So, watch us grow stronger,
See us get bigger,
Cause there's power in numbers,
And no-ones being counted out.
Yeah no-ones being counted out.

[Verse 2]
Baby, I'm written on your hands,
And the words bleed.
I haven't even heard the word stop.
At the height of a roller-coaster ride,
When I'm living in your eyes,
Would you try to get off?
Take a one-way away from all the failure,
Forgetting all the danger, and try to move on.
Leave the bag that you brought,
There's no time for second thoughts.
If you let it all fade, the pain goes away, cause–

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
We have ourselves, not each-other.
We have our cells, we recover.
We may be weak,
Maybe way too strong,
But if you take that breath,
Keep calm and carry on.
Live a little bit,
Love a little more.
Have a laughing fit,
Tilt your head a little bit higher.

[Chorus]
We all have secrets that we try to hide,
We all have moments that we wanna rewind.
We gave away love that we'd love to take back.
And we've all left it in the past.
We gave away our cover with a broken heart,
We said we'd do it later and let down our guards.
Well when you do it once, there's no going back.
And we've all left it in the past, so–
Watch us grow stronger,
See us get bigger,
Cause there's power in numbers,
And no-one's being counted out.

No one's being counted out.
No one's being counted out.
Track Name: Facepaint
[Verse 1]
Tell yourself it's fine.
As I convince you otherwise,
With eyes like hammers, words like nails.
You always search to lose yourself,
In pieces of mind, alone.

[Pre-Chorus]
Can you escape those horrors like waves–
that wake up your dreams,
And they haunt your days?
How dare you...
Wear that, you know that

[Chorus]
I hate that facepaint.
You're just a feather in the rock-way.
I can see you hide, from me.
You hide from me.

[Verse 2]
You just use your hands.
To shield all your emotion, like a soldier refusing to cry.
So, we sit in silence with sirens in our minds again.

[Pre-Chorus]
Can you escape those horrors like waves–
That wake up your dreams,
And they haunt your days?
How dare you...
How dare you wear that, you know that

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
You know you're being followed.
Run for cover.

[Ending Chorus]
I hate that facepaint.
I'm talking about yours,
But I know that you're a feather in the rock-way.
I can see you so clearly now.

You hide from me.
You hide from me.
You hide from me.
You hide from me.

[Outro]
You toss in bed like a ship at sea,
Don't ever forget that you did this to me.

How dare you.
