about

Drowning at Dawn's sophomore album, released in November of 2012. The once rebellious band has softened up with this new album. This is a more personal and meaningful album that consists of upbeat love songs, encouraging ballads, and lyrics that are more mature compared to that of the debut, "According To Us". Though still young, they are making their mark piece by piece. The band is growing up, and this album is prime and major evidence that they truly are.

Track Name: Pulled Away
Back and forth
It's the same old thing everyday
Yeah, you stare
I look then I turn away
Oh, I'm not giving in

You sit by him
Thinking I would be jealous
But I'm sorry to tell you
I'm not
You were the one who pulled away

You pull away
Pulling me
Pull...

Take it somewhere else
I'm not giving in
I know what you want
You aren't getting it
Tell me that you want me back
Don't act like he's the one you like

I go out and see you with your friends
It's awkward but I really do not care
Or do I ?
I think I'm just fine...

You terrorize me
Petrified, but
I know you're stalling time
Cause you'll be back
But I will not say you're mine

PRECHORUS

CHORUS

My life !
Yeah, I'm done !

Taking all my time
Taking all my time...

CHORUS

Tell me that you want me back !

Taking all my time...
Track Name: Stranger
This person
He's no one that I know
He stares at me through a glass window
When will this torture end ?
I'm thinking I will not win

I fight all night to get my head back
But I'm no match for his stamina
I'm walking between these walls
Fighting this demon off...

Wake me up and save me from life
I hate what I am starting to feel like
Why did I have to fall ?
I know I've been through it all
Tear me down,
Break the cycle
Help me out cause nobody else will
Wake me up and save me from this Hell
I'm a stranger inside myself

They talk aloud and look right at me
But no one ever sees what I see
Or feel what I feel
Hoping it's not real
It damaged the insides of my core
Driving me insane some more
(Stranger, so familiar...)

CHORUS

Myself... (x3)

Talking
Talking, killing me inside
Inside...

CHORUS (x2)

(Stranger...)

Stranger inside myself...
Track Name: Bright Side
Walking down the street
And I know that you want to say you're wrong
But I won't let you
I'm being difficult
Cause I can't see the bright side
And I know you'll do it again
I see it in your eyes

Situations come and go
Sometimes they take control...

There's no right side
No bright side to this situation
I just find myself deep inside these complications
The promise that awaits me
There's no bright side

I'm looking back on all the promises that you made
And I've realized you can't deliver half the crap you said
Blinded by the lies
Now these exile eyes won't trust you again

Blinded by the lies...

CHORUS (x2)

(No bright side to me...)
(No bright side to...)

CHORUS (x2)

There's no right side... (x4)

There's no right side...
Track Name: Code Red
(Code red)
I think the air supply is running low
I only said what I thought I knew
Accusations lead to forced frustrations
(Now we have a...)
Code red on our hands

I can't decide to speak this out now
I only tried to work out
But this time I think you've gone
Gone gone over the deep end
Can't reverse what's happened
And I'm trying but I just can't do this !

(Code red) (x7)
(Code...)

(Code red)
The last time that this happened
You didn't help
Now these scars are here
I took time to try to get the truth from you
But you were right (right !)
I don't love you !

CHORUS

We've got a code red !
Can't hear what you've said
The alarms are going off
Take me to the end of this war
Cause I'm tired of being alone in this !

CHORUS (x2)

We've got a code red !

(I think the air supply is running low)
(I only said what you know I knew...)
Track Name: Underestimate Me
(You underestimate me) (x7)

They told us that we wouldn't make it
They buried our dreams in the sand
They thought we would sit there and take it
They just didn't understand
That we won't just watch you pull away
No, we won't
We won't just watch you stay the same, now

Have you no faith in me ?
I'm capable of more than you may think
I can be everyone's hero
Or just sit at home
I'm very simple
But you wouldn't know

Don't underestimate me...

The truth is out
And we know everything
Without a doubt
We can't help but see
That everything is wrong
And it's not just your fault
The trust in this world is gone !

CHORUS

Don't underestimate me...

(You underestimate me) (x2)
Track Name: Worse
(Whoa, worse, worse...)

We are unreal
We are so fake
We can be half as bad as the ones we blame
So where is the saving grace ?
How can you call my name ?
I'm wondering how to live with myself
I'm gonna need some help

I think it's time I know what they know
Cause I can finally see that...

I'm so much worse than everybody else
When it comes to being free
But I know you're just as bad as me if I gave up
Gave up
Give up...
If I'm so much worse

These faded scenes turn me south
We can't force our ears to hear the sound
Well now you need me more than ever
Bet you thought you were so clever
How are you gonna breathe with a closed mouth ?

Watch out as I start the countdown ?
And they'll all try to figure this out
I've already done that
So why do it again ?

CHORUS

I'm so much worse than everybody else...
When it comes to being free
But I know you're just as bad as me if I gave up
Gave up...

Give up... !

CHORUS (x2)
Track Name: Breakdown
And I fell down to correct my eyes
Cause these codes,
They just can't be right
I've fallen
I've fallen

Well you left us without a trace
Had no trouble forgetting my face
I know it
I know it...

Can I breakdown ?
Just stay down ?
I don't wanna get back up
If I'm still holding on,
Does that mean that you are ?
I'm trying not to mess things up
With my touch

And I fell down to correct my eyes
Cause these codes,
They just can't be right
I've fallen
I've fallen

Well you left us without a trace
Had no trouble forgetting my face
I know it
I know it...

Can I breakdown ?
Just stay down ?
I don't wanna get back up
If I'm still holding on,
Does that mean that you are ?
I'm trying not to mess things up
With my touch...

Oh, Break me down
I've fallen
I've fallen...

Can I breakdown ?
Just stay down ?
I don't wanna get back up...

Breakdown
Just stay down
I don't wanna get back up
If I'm still holding on,
Does that mean that you are ?
I'm trying not to mess things up...

With my touch...
Track Name: Tears
A quick stare and a hit to the face
A warn out smile and a warm embrace
These things just make everything go slow

A sudden turn of my brown eyes
And I'm blinded by your light
We should just stick with what we know...

(And what I know is crying...)

Tears fall
Don't wait for the countdown
Just try to keep your ground
Cause you've got a hold of my happiness
Don't stop
Just keep moving out now
And I hope your so proud
Cause you're the only thing that I would've missed
But now you'll fall with my tears...

A signal and a secret code
And you hope that nobody knows
You're taking too many steps here

Confront you, but you throw me a bone
It makes me think I was always alone
I feel like you won't consider...

(And what I know is you...)

Tears fall
Don't wait for the countdown
Just try to keep your ground
Cause you've got a hold of my happiness
Don't stop
Just keep moving out now
And I hope your so proud
Cause you're the only thing that I would've missed
But now you'll fall...

With my hopes and dreams
And lies in between
I'll save your life again
Two, then three
Are you listening ?
I'll back off... !

A quick shot into the head
And now I'm lying inside my bed
Drowning in my tears...
