Track Name: Please Read Me
Look who came out to play,
Behind the CD case
You're not the one
I expected to show up
Thought you were locked away,
But you got out today
Keep all the children safe

Don't break your neck the way
You're looking over here

A last ditch effort
Like a message in a bottle
Slim chance your words will wind up
Somewhere to be read and save you
Your screams will go unheard,
Plea for help that's undeserved
You used your last chance

Can't stand the way you try to
Get inside my head

I found your note today
And threw it far away
Wish I could see the face
Of somebody who
Cast themselves away
Track Name: Aftermath 2.0
What would you say
Track Name: Summer Storm/Dig Me Out
It all started with me
Thinking you were all I need
You are the last thing I need,
And you know,
Every day goes by,
I can't see you the same

And I no longer reward
Your bad behavior
I just want to live
'Til you see,
Remember about the seed that's
Still in me

So lie to me
Tell me that I'm all you need
And then bury me,
Just bury me

I wanna wanna keep breathing
I wanna wanna try new things
I want to live

And I still have the seed
That you planted in me
You better start digging,
You better start digging

Dig it out of me
(Dig it out!)
Dig it out of me
(Dig it out!)
Track Name: July (feat. Destiane Thornton)
Waited, a long time
Longing, just to see you smile
I miss you, I'm walking
Hope to see you,
So I'll have someone

Waiting, Watching
Summer clouds, and I'm drifting off
I wake up, I'm with you
Us together,
Under the sun

Thought I wanted you,
Even though you treat the world like trash
Your promises are comin' belly up
And words are not enough

Words are not enough
(Your promises are comin' belly up)

Words are not enough
