Track Name: Today
Today, is just not my day/
I've barely opened my eyes and already I dread it/
Your lungs are filled with greed/
You prey on the weak until you've taken everything/
By day my reflection turns grey/
Like a bottomless black hole pit, I play my part, inside this machine/
I need a fire in my life/
Somewhere to focus my heart before I go insane/
If I take too long to wake myself up/
I'll become tongue tied, I'll lose myself/
If I give myself to yuppie love ties/
This white collar crime, will never end/
You know we can’t be friends/
You can’t think of anyone but yourself/
I need a fire in my life/
Somewhere to focus myself or I’ll go insane/
If I take too long to wake myself up/
I'll become tongue tied, I'll lose myself/
If I give myself to yuppie love ties/
This white collar crime, will never end/
I’m tired of being careful/
I want to be someone that stands for something real/
I’d tare it all apart/
Just to feel I stand for something, I stand for something real
Track Name: Part Of Me
Hey look at you being anybodies fool/
don't you know your anything but ordinary/
I know its hard to escape what feels like certainty
even as were all headed south/
I look at a photograph and see I m paying for past mistakes/
There framed in light are memories of everything that could've been/
Not a day goes by it will always be a part of me/
not a day goes by it will always be a part of me/
it will always be a memory/
Is it everything that you thought it could be/
is it all as clear just like the birds and the bees/
it entertains us all for a while
Track Name: Restless
It’s late, I’m awake/
I‘m staring at the walls thinking when will I fade, into the night and turn it into something/
Today is a daze/
Thinking how am I gonna get out of this place, into a life I can turn it into something/
I’m getting restless and my defenses are wearing down/
I’m getting older am I strong enough to turn this around/
I like the terrible things and I don’t know what it means for me/
If today is the day/
Then why won’t it ever just change, into a life I can turn it into something/
I’m getting restless and my defenses are wearing down I’m getting older am I strong enough to turn things around/
Have I taken too long feels like the weight could break my bones/
I'm getting restless here waiting for something to turn/
And every time that I try, it comes at the cost of my pride/
I never felt I had my chance to shine/
I can still hear your voice edging me on in my stride/
“It’s gonna be fine son your gonna be fine”/
And all the laughs they take away/
We lost something on the way
Track Name: City Lights
To get back to where we started, we gotta get back up first/
Where we started from/
To take a look at where the sun is, we gotta get back up first/
Where we started from/
Cause we’re all searching for a place we’ve heard of/
A home to call our own, we can’t let it disappear/
No more looking over my shoulder, this rusty compass points me/ Where I want to be/
No more giving in to reason, I’ll take what I get and I know/
It’s all on me/
Cause we're all searching for a place we've heard of/
A home to call our own, we can’t let it disappears/
I’ll find a way/
I’m not going to change/
I can’t stop thinking there is a better place/
Over time we reach the city lights and it electrifies me/
I feel warmth I hear music/
It’s pulling me in
Track Name: Lately
It feels like all my life/Has been clouded by smoke/
From the barrel of a gun I can’t let go/
Somehow all this time/
The things I wanted the most/
Took a back seat to my faults it seems/
Lately clocks are ticking against me/
Slowly withering barely, holding on to my pride/
Lately building up and then breaking/
I'm a sinner a saint, I die one day at a time/
It feels like all my life/ Has been clouded by smoke/
From the barrel of a gun I can’t let go/
This all-time favorite, land field, snake pit, such is life/
But I can’t let go/I’m my best when I’m with you/
There is nothing I can’t do/Such a shame that it’s not true/
One more lie I swear I’m through
Track Name: Spares
I had millions in my pockets but I never thought I'd be saved/
I was used to flying rockets but I never thought I’d be scared/
We’re falling in reverse, holding onto words/
Time, if we had time/
Save tonight there are no spares/
Always, always honor what it meant/
I was used to taking shortcuts but they never led me anywhere/
I was standing on the edge and never felt that it was crumbling/
We’re falling in reverse, holding onto words/
Time, if we had time/
Save tonight cause there are no spares/
Always, always honor what it meant/
Save tonight and dive with one last breath/
Always, always honor what it meant/
You and me we are colors in a sky that’s falling/
It’s dark and gloomy now/
It’s time to take a bow
