First single off "I Made". Discussing alcohol, people, and scenarios regarding the two.

lyrics

I know what you want:
Affirmation
That everything you do is justified

Lose yourself tonight
Among the ocean
Of swirling rage and lovers' emotions

You are a tidal wave, and I'm caught in the undertow
As I watch you from afar and question, "when will I draw my line in the sand"?
While you sit in your tower of cinder blocks and elevated vines
Let your hair down
Don't cut me off, don't let me fall

When you take your first drink
And fall under the tide
I'll be by your side

I know all your mistakes
Down to a timeline
How many cups does it take to make the call?

How much is enough when I reach my limit for the night, or for a lifetime?
Cause I can't support this way of being saved
I'm too afraid to watch myself step by the wayside
But I'm too afraid
To be alone in this darkened sunrise

You're only cold when there's no fire in your stomach
In every situation I never know how to act
Given the influence of happiness and exhaustion
I always wish that giving up was my only option

but

You are a tidal wave, and I'm caught in the undertow
As I watch you from afar and question, "when will I draw my line in the sand"?
While you sit in your tower of cinder blocks and elevated vines
Let your hair down
Don't cut me off, don't let me fall

I'm tangled in your hair, don't let me fall
Stone made by your stare

Don't let me fall.
