Through music, we can make sense of our darkest thoughts and release bitter emotions like anger, frustration and hate that often only bring us down. A beautiful and passionate creation can be made while making sense of this all, turning something that was once ugly into something truly special. Music can enlighten you. Music can release you. Most importantly, music can give you the power to make change.

Lyrics

Drifting

Written By: Carly

Verse 1
Help me I'm drifting away
And Nobody knows what to say
Help me I'm losing my faith
My body marches on
While my soul it lies in wait

Pre Chorus
And I can feel my heart beat strong
And I can see its time to move on
This has been my life now for so long
And now its gone
Now its gone

Chorus
I can't find my way through this mess
I've worked my whole life
Don't want to give up yet

Help me find a way to cross the line
Just give me one more try to get it right this time

Verse 2
See me I'm walking through space
But nothings there to guide me
Through this dark, confusing maze
See me, determination on my face
Pushing on so slowly
Frustrated with the pace

Pre Chorus
And I can feel my heart beat strong
And I can see its time to move on
You've gotta understand
This has been my dream now for so long
Now things have changed
I'm holding on

Chorus
I can't find my way through this mess
I've worked my whole life
Don't want to give up yet

Help me find a way to cross the line
Just give me one more try to get it right this time

Bridge
Now its time to soar to the sky
My fears won't hold me down
Make my dreams die
If my soul looks onward to the light
I am free enough this time to fly

Verse 3/Outro
Hear me I've got one more thing to say

Mistake

Written By: Carly

Verse 1
You're supposed to be my biggest fan
Instead you put me down
You have no faith in me

I hate the way I look through your eyes
I don't mean much to you
I feel so ugly

Every time I look up
When I start to Climb
You're right there to
Put me back in my place

Don't think I'll ever beat this
I'm never good enough
I can't seem
To get your attention

PreChorus
You're not hearing me
You're not seeing me
Go on ignore me some more
Things aren't getting better

Chorus
The things you don't say
Always hurt me
Inside

The words you don't speak
Keep me up at night
I cry

The feelings you don't have
They leave me in the dark
Why is it this way?

You and I are a mistake

Verse 2
I sacrifice my hopes and dreams
Put them to the side
So you can follow yours

I tie up all your loose ends, yeah
Then you tell me
You don't love me no more, oh

I'm sick of taking care of you
When you don't even
Want me around

And no matter what I do
I can't seem
To get your affection

PreChorus
You're not hearing me
You're not seeing me
Go on ignore me some more
Things aren't getting better

Chorus
The things you don't say
Always hurt me
Inside

The words you don't speak
Keep me up at night
I cry

The feelings you don't have
They leave me in the dark
Why is it this way?

You and I are a mistake

I Want it Back

Written By: Beautiful Trigger

Verse 1
Take another hour
Take another Day
Take another moment from me
Till you get what you need

I am running out of patience
Running out of room
Losing reasons to stay here with you
You're using me
Abusing Me

PreChorus
Am I getting through now?

Chorus
I won't get it back all this time
I've been putting you before me
I'm always the last one in line
Waiting helplessly for my needs
I won't get it back all the energy
I used to survive while you found your dreams
Ask me what's wrong, well - what's right?
I lost my light
And I want it back

Verse 2
I'm tired of holding on
To your responsibilities
I've got a life of my own
That I'm ready to lead

Don't you understand
There's an action you must take
I'm sick of asking why
Now I know
These things they'll never change

You've gotta have it your way

Chorus
I won't get it back all this time
I've been putting you before me
I'm always the last one in line
Waiting helplessly for my needs
I won't get it back all the energy
I used to survive while you found your dreams
Ask me what's wrong, well - what's right?
I lost my light
And I want it back

Bridge
Stop making promises
You don't intend to keep
I've closed the door now
I'm not nieve enough to believe

We take two approaches to covers in our set list:

2. Re-writing and re-arranging cover songs to give them an edge and a new perspective that helps to show who we are and what we stand for

Both types of covers are present in our most current set lists.
