Track Name: A Semester Abroad - Self-Reliant
burnt out a light
left in my head
emotionally spent
on things being different
burning out or burning up just to forget (or at least pretend)

this reality of mine, it once stood steady
was I too blind?
eyes muddled with disconnection?
denial and decay (MY FATE)
if I refuse to ever see past yesterday (TODAY)

all I wanna be is close to a person that I was before
all I wanna be is self reliant

every time I go outside it fucking rains
it pours on me
something I can’t explain
i could stack up the reasons, so insincere,
to build a throne atop a self-sophistic belvedere (belvedere)

i hate to stray from things I know I want to say
so why can’t I, find the means to continue (continue)
onto the point I’d never get to

ON MY OWN

well I can’t pretend (I CAN'T)
i couldn’t begin to
accept the things (ACCEPT) I’ve feared and swore to forget
won’t realize what holds me back is holding on (to regret)

all I wanna be is close to a person that I was before
all I wanna be is self reliant
all I wanna be is close to a person that I was before
all I wanna be is self reliant

every time I go outside it fucking rains
it pours on me
something I can’t explain
i could stack up the reasons
so insincere
to build a throne atop a self-sophistic belvedere (belvedere)

i just hope to find a life for me that’s figured out (figured out)
one where I’m truly happy
my feet on the ground

I JUST HOPE TO FIND A LIFE FOR ME THAT'S FIGURED OUT
ONE WHERE I'M TRULY HAPPY
MY FEET ON THE GROUND
Track Name: A Semester Abroad - Flower Fields (Thanks For Coming)
sometimes I fail to notice
through all the downs, and wintry blues
the flowers always seem to bloom

incessant change, a constant motion
for now, I’ll hang tight
and brace for flight
can’t fully expect what this might do

coming up in search of peace of mind (peace of mind)
losing focus, losing track of time (track of time)
coming down it feels so anodyne
thanks for coming, we’ll go again sometime

these lights
illuminate life
through new eyes,
blest with sight for the first time

Oh!
blest for the first time

coming up in search of peace of mind (peace of mind)
losing focus, losing track of time (track of time)
coming down it feels so anodyne
thanks for coming, we’ll go again sometime

oh no
oh no

oh no! think I lost control (lost control)
sanity's just something I can’t get ahold
plead not for what I receive
shifting toward new dimensions altering what I perceive

OH NO! think I lost control (LOST CONTROL)
sanity’s just something unattainable
i know now as the moments flee
something new can blossom beautifully if I’d concede

coming up in search of peace of mind
losing focus, losing track of time
COMING DOWN IT FEELS SO ANODYNE
THANKS FOR COMING, WE'LL GO AGAIN SOMETIME

COMING UP IN SEARCH OF PEACE OF MIND
LOSING FOCUS, LOSING TRACK OF TIME
COMING DOWN IT FEELS SO ANODYNE
THANKS FOR COMING, WE'LL GO AGAIN SOMETIME

OH!
