EVEREST

(featuring Paul Gigliotti)

 

VERSE 1

she’s a runaway

safely insane

she's the chance you didn't take

set a fire in your dark place

 

PRE CHROUS

all over the map

writing stories of her past

 

CHORUS

you'll do everything by the book

and you don't even know who wrote it

they love to see you shoot for the stars

with guns they never loaded

so be still

listen hard

'cause what you love will show you who you are

it's foolish to be practical in this unpredictable world

 

VERSE 2

she's a local gypsy

only Tuesday and she's tipsy

virgin sunrise gets her drunk

sober highs on ocean love

 

PRE CHORUS

CHORUS

 

INTERLUDE

BRIDGE

the mountains you were given are wanting to be moved

even Everest was made for you

your fate is waiting on you

make a move

 

CHORUS

[OUTRO]

the mountains you were given are wanting to be moved

even Everest was made for you

X2

ROCK BOTTOM

 

VERSE 1

it’s lonely at the top

but the bottom is worse

the highs might be a hoax

but the lows are a curse

you’ll claw your way out

just to sink back in

how do you find the strength to fight

without a will to live

 

PRE CHORUS

getting buried looks just like being planted

getting set free can feel like being stranded

 

CHORUS

we earn our wins

with every loss

we only prevail

with a willingness to fall

you will fail your way there

so when in fear

just do it scared

 

VERSE 2

fell right down

to my lowest low

where up

is the only way to go

so when things fall apart

know that rock bottom is

where the self made start

 

PRE CHORUD

CHORUS

BRIDGE

I was dead wrong

rock bottom came to make me strong

 

INTERLUDE

CHORUS

HERO

 

VERSE 1

you don't long for something better

if this is all you know

when your abuser is in power

where the hell do you go

 

PRE CHORUS

drained and blamed and shamed in pain these

brave souls came to break their chains

 

CHORUS

your power is back

it came with a wrath

bore your soul to the world

to save the next girl

 

VERSE 2

you didn't know he was the devil

when you made the deal

he put your dream on the line

so his secrets were sealed

 

PRE CHORUS

CHORUS

BRIDGE

you're a hero

hero

I hope you made it home

you're all heroes

heroes

walking each other home

 

[INTERLUDE

 

CHORUS]

WORTHY

 

VERSE 1

tiptoeing around my truth

afraid of who I might lose

honesty terrifies me

and that's such a tragedy

 

PRE CHORUS

I won't take this to the grave

it's time to face the hate

 

[CHORUS]

fighting for our lives

like we don't have the right to live

shamed for what we are

like we get to pick

we are worthy

(worthy, worthy)

praying that someday

we can get the love we give

 

VERSE 2

living outside of the lines

begging for allies

you're an enabler if you let it slide

the blind eye is still a hate crime

 

PRE CHORUS

CHORUS

INTERLUDE

VERSE 3

tiptoeing around your truth

gives haters an excuse

to keep on hating on

it's time to put your pride on

 

PRE CHORUS 2

been denied for what I am

I hate that I give a damn

 

CHORUS

GRAVEYARDS

 

VERSE 1

people love to sell you on what you can't do

they project their limits like they apply to you

there are a few voices worth hearing out

you'll know who they are 'cause they don't bargain with your doubts

 

PRE CHORUS

you're the one who has to die with

the way you choose to live

deathbeds are graveyards

for the things you never did

 

CHORUS

do not give up on

who you are

you won't finish a fight

without a few scars

hold onto your heart

it knows best

hear your soul

and fuck the rest

 

VERSE 2

the insecurities of another are not your truth

only those who didn't try will tell you how you'll lose

 

PRE CHORUS

CHORUS

BRIDGE

hold onto your heart

it knows best

hear your soul

and fuck the rest

 

[INTERLUDE]

[CHORUS]

HAVE MERCY

 

VERSE 1

if your walls could talk they would

tell you that their work is done

it's time to live and love

the war is won

 

PRE CHORUS

the soldier I once had to be to survive

isn't someone who can love live and thrive

I learned to let go of who I once slaved to be

so I can find grace and have mercy

 

CHORUS

there's so much to learn

from these barricades

but with so much hurt

it's hard not to hate

you gotta build your walls

when the going gets tough

and tear them right back down

when life gives you love

 

VERSE 2

you're on track no turn is wrong

the trials came to make you strong

but the walls that kept the monsters out

are now keeping you in

and we can't have love when we live like this

 

PRE CHORUS

CHORUS

[CHORUS EXTENSION

and the same walls

that once made saves

only know how to

send love away

so know when it's time

to bench your defensive line

 

[BRIDGE]

love

love

love

love

 

[INTERLUDE

 

CHORUS

 

CHORUS EXTENSION]

 

OUTRO

love

love

FIND ME

 

VERSE 1

it’s time to take a chance on my wildest dreams

life inside the box isn’t working out for me

I want to make a mark

what I love is where I’ll start

 

PRE CHORUS

losing my mind

to find my soul

only a heart

can fill these holes

 

[CHORUS]

breaking all the plans to find me (find me)

letting go of who I thought I’d be (thought I’d be)

gave it all I have just to let it go (let it go)

when it’s not your time life will let you know

 

VERSE 1

taking a step back from all we’ve done let’s try again

step outside of your element long enough to pretend

you let it go

until you can

 

PRE CHORUS

CHORUS

BRIDGE

I’ll find me

I’ll find me

I’ll find me

I’ll find me

 

INTERLUDE

CHORUS

MY ROCK

VERSE 1

when we met my soul was checked out

my walls were bigger than my doubts

my heart was hiding

with my head I was siding

 

PRE CHORUS

you brought me back to life

then kept me close to the light

 

CHORUS

you are the only home

I have ever know

only rock I’ve ever had

turns out love ain’t so bad

 

VERSE 2

the only one who found my heart

through the mess of my head

you set fire to all my fears

and found my doubts until they fled

 

PRE CHORUS

CHORUS

BRIDGE

Oh X 2

 

INTERLUDE

CHORUS

dead weight

 

VERSE 1

your heart space is

prime real estate

don't spend on

anger and hate

in the end we

drown in vain

if we don’t

find the drain

 

PRE CHORUS

don’t waste your big heart on big hate

don’t spend your strength bearing dead weight

 

CHORUS

hate will make a home in your heart

it loves to decorate your soul with scars

but it can only thrive if you hold onto it

let it go

hates not made for hearts to hold

 

[VERSE 2]

the weight of your heart

is holding you down

‘cause what we don't face

we carry around

 

PRE CHORUS

CHORUS

BRIDGE

hearts aren't made for hate

it’s time to shed the weight

 

INTERLUDE

CHORUS
