This is our first single Stray, the first song where everyone in this band has contributed equally into composing a product such as this.


I just want a little peace of mind
Why be alive if you can't live your life
So much doubt, I can't think about
I'd just rather go and fade into the crowd

I never realized how much I sacrificed
to make things right, make things right!
I hate the way sometimes I lack the
strength to get up
My body keeps on telling me
I've had enough

I've fallen to my knees
I am at ease
Spare me your pity, spare me your blame
We are imperfect, we are the same
I have my gratitude in place
I am not afraid of what
comes after this, what comes after this

i haven't gotten all the words to describe the taste
A bit of anger and a bit of relief

Tired of being afraid and
endlessly running away, endlessly running away
Trying to find myself
Refusing to hear what the others will say

It's hard to stray from keeping ourselves safe,
ourselves safe
It's hard to stray from keeping myself safe

Tired of being afraid
I am not afraid of what's to come of this
Trying to find myself
Don't know where I'm headed
I need an escape, so why don't you
Take me to a better place
