Track Name: Brave
Perhaps one night
Looking up at the stars
And the glow of the moon
Just me and the night

Maybe somewhere
Somewhere else in the world
Another dreamer is gazing
At the same stars

So many Doors
Each one distinct
So many Paths
All so diverse
Some rugged
Some smooth
Some twisted
Some short
Some long and
Some are curved
Some are just unswerving
Persevere!
Be Brave!

I can make my own path
Carve my own fate in stone
Not to live out your life
but to live my own

I am just a TEEN
But I can do it

Hello people my name is Stacy
Sorry I am late, I am just a little lazy
I see a guy right across from me

But he is also shy and nervous
But i think we can talk together
About our problems here in school

I am just a teen
And I can choose
Track Name: Drop
They are the messiah
You can be like them
With the desert wind

Just don’t say a word
Else you’ll run out
And fall to the dirt

Unknown to your youth
You’re nodding your head
Holding the gold for later

And do they see the fire
The held back sounds
Every broken bone

Sweet Australian teens
Kept in dormant rooms
Happy to be there

Forgotten the reason
Memories held in
Kept as a young one
Track Name: Out of My Shell
Trying to tell, but the words don't come,
Hiding behind a wall that I built myself,
Hoping this will end, I'm pushing against me,
Trying to change who I think I might be,
Scared of what I might become,
Wanting to be unseen and unheard,
I hide behind the glass,
Carefully choosing, constantly thinking
what I look like to them.

Can't mess up, or I'll be a goner
Walking along the line, I'm too afraid to cross
Stop trying to shove me in
the mold that's way too small for me,
though you can fit in all too well...
I'll come out of my shell

Worried when I start to think something new,
My mind wanders away and I try to hold it back,
To restrict it, but it builds, collects within me
What will happen when the avalanche comes?
Over the years I've tried to prove my worth,
Every week my fighting days have grown.
It's an uphill battle, for my inner reputation
Every day a new discovery
Time will tell what happens next

Can't mess up, or I'll be a goner
Walking along the line, I'm too afraid to cross

Stop trying to shove me in
the mold that's way too small for me,
though you can fit in all too well...
I'll come out of my shell

I only really know a piece of myself,
I’m happy, content,
and it's a great thing to be
But that's just scratching the surface,
there's so much more to me

Just break through the glass
and I'll begin the journey
to find where I stand

Can't mess up, or I'll be a goner
Walking along the line, I'm too afraid to cross

Stop trying to shove me in
the mold that's way too small for me,
though you can fit in all too well...
I'll come out of my shell

Stop trying to shove me in
the mold that's way too small for me,
though you can fit in all too well...
I'll come out of my shell
