"Smith is very open about using the music as a conduit for dealing with his depression, but the gentle nature of the music and the melody coming from Smith’s voice create a healing narrative that take the ugly and force it out of the shadows.

Track Name: Hurt
I hurt myself
Made the whole even bigger
I'm focused on relief
But the wound grows deeper.

I don't know what I am
But I'm trying
Take it away
Until I have nothing left.

I will die alone
I will be forgotten
My bones are aching
Put me out of my misery.
Track Name: Die // Slow
I want to die slow
Let the rain fall
And let me rot
In the ground.

Don't cry
You'll forget me in a year

When the hole in the ground where my body lay fills,
Leave and never come back.
I'd hate to see you fake pain.
I'd hate to see you fake it.
Track Name: Alone
Don't mind me, I just get lonely.
Being in company only makes it worse.

I've stayed alone longer than you'd know.

So let it be, if I make it out.
Remind me of who I used to be.
Track Name: Give
I'd be lying if I said I didn't think about you. I gave and left everything. I let you take it all. I'm dead to you. "I miss you" the three words I'm used to. I let you take it all. But I'm dead to you. I don't want it back, just leave me with some dignity.
