Track Name: Paradise
Paradise

There are shadows all around us who are feeding only lies
The evidence is burning and it’s right before our eyes
There is food upon the table but it smells a lot like shit
They take away our freedom and they get away with it

So tell me now, what are we doing
I can’t just sit back while I watch our world ignite and die, yeah
So much for love yeah
Let’s set the night on fire and watch it burn in to the light, yeah

I see evil in the spotlight as it holds its bible tight
Peaceful people dying through the bangs and flashing lights
There’s a school that now lies empty and there’s blood upon the floor
Some say what a tragedy, but I see so much more

So tell me now, what are we doing
I can’t just sit back while I watch our world ignite and die, yeah
So much for love yeah
Let’s set the night on fire and watch it burn in to the light, yeah

Paradise, losing grip, every day, sinking ship
No control, such despair, moral goals, laissez-faire
Track Name: Getting Out Of The Rain
Getting out of the Rain

Ain’t it funny how you don’t know where you wanna go
Until you find yourself halfway down another road
But to complain is just a waste now
Somethings we have no control
I remember when our eyes met so profound
We could barely stop the walls from crashing down
But now things just aren’t the same
I can’t remember your name

The road more travelled is the one that makes you change your mind
It’s easy said but it is hard to leave it all behind
The constant struggle is it enough to derail the train
It doesn’t matter ‘cause the risk is worth getting out of the rain

Ain’t it crazy how you wake up one day all alone
Spending every minute staring at your lifeless phone
Well, loneliness is just a phase now
Sometimes you’re just on your own
I can see the sun rise in another town
Everyone is heading up but I’m going down
And I just can’t get no play
My friends are so far away
Track Name: Please Take Offense
Please take offense

Just write a script take a sip til it goes away
This is the world that we’re in today
It won’t be long til it’s gone, long gone
So clap your hands, do the dance that we oughta do
What the fuck is this world coming to
I don’t belong it’s so wrong, so wrong

I spent the last four years alone, going through the motions
Just trying to make it on my own
Little did I know, that everything was broken
All I had reaped was ever sown
And all else fades away, and I lie here away at night so late and so alone
I long for your embrace, I need to feel the taste of comfort
Long to hear you say that I’m ok
That everybody feels this way from time to time
And I’ll be fine
The future’s open and it’s mine to finally shine

So fill the hole in your soul and persecute a few
Fuck everyone who don’t agree with you
I don’t belong it’s so wrong, so wrong
Just wait in line for a fine til we get your bill
Everybody has the time to kill
It won’t be long til it’s gone, long gone

This is my last year spent alone, I’m gonna find a friend
If it’s the voice inside my head
I listen to the tone, I cannot comprehend
I take back every word I said
And all else fades away, and I lie here awake at night so late and so alone
I long for your embrace, I need to feel the taste of comfort
Long to hear you say that I’m ok
That everybody feels this way from time to time
And I’ll be fine
The future’s open and it’s mine to finally shine
Track Name: Mile High Club
Mile High Club

Take my hand fly away with me now
The sky’s so blue and the engine’s so loud
Just trying to take it all in
Over the trees as you’re holding me tight
It’s hard to believe it was love at first flight
As I’m touching my lips to your skin

I never would believe, I could achieve
The way that we began
But please don’t misconceive
I did not have this planned

Here we go, I barely shut the door
From the mirror to the floor we got down to this wild affair
I hope you know, that I cannot transpose
The beauty under your clothes that I saw a mile in the air

Take it slow, exit one at a time
The whole plane knows, and they’re forming a line
But you instantly soothe me with a smile
Back in my seat as you drink from my glass
We’re sitting in coach but I’m flying first class
And I feel like I’ve just ran a mile

I never would believe, I could achieve
The way that we began
But please don’t misconceive
I did not have this planned

Here we go, I barely shut the door
From the mirror to the floor we got down to this wild affair
I hope you know, that I cannot transpose
The beauty under your clothes that I saw a mile in the air
Track Name: On+On+On
On+On+On

She sticks to me like a rooted tree or a red wine stain
I let her be so she can vent to me over and over again
She’s gone to the dogs it’s just part of her plot
Never left alone, I would rather be shot
All she wants to do is just complain

And I don’t know what’s on your mind, but you’re still talking all the time
I nod my head and she goes on and on and on and on
I don’t know how else to explain you live, you love, you ascertain
So I just sit here she goes on and on and on and on and on

Stupid phone won’t leave me alone it just never quits
I’m her friend so never force an end I just take the hits
She’s gone to the dogs it’s just part of her plot
Never left alone, I would rather be shot
I get caught looking at her tits

And I don’t know what’s on your mind, but you’re still talking all the time
I nod my head and she goes on and on and on and on
I don’t know how else to explain you live, you love, you ascertain
So I just sit here she goes on and on and on and on and on
Track Name: Boundaries
Boundaries

So much for my adventure, this world is full of rules and guidelines
So much more to define
I’ll see you in the morning, fuck heeding all these warning, I’m done
There’s no changing my mind

I’m leaving this behind me, you’re never gonna find me
Finally I’m not waiting around
Something gives inside of me, and I am finally running free
Gonna make my break before I’m falling down

Forget your fucking lectures, your condescending word are useless
You’re just wasting your time
This train is bound for glory, I’ve got my guitar and I’m boarding
And I’m feeling sublime
Where do you go when all these boundaries try to hold you down
I’m letting go ‘cause there is more and I am leaving now
Track Name: No Brakes
No Brakes

Wake up, another morning on the floor
You’d think I’d learn my lesson from the night before
Hold up, my feet are bare and body’s sore
Give me food and I’ll be ready for some more
Shut up, I can’t believe that we have none
I don’t even remember running the oven
So what, all I know is we had fun
I think it’s time to have ourselves another one

This is it lets have some fun
We’re making good times on the run
The music’s loud and we’re all here
It’s time to have ourselves a beer
So pass the bud or pour a shot
We’ll give it everything we got
We’ll keep this fucking town awake
It’s all I know ‘cause I have got no brakes

I’ve got no brakes x4

What’s up, I grab my first one at the bar
I wish that in life drinking beer would get me far
Back up, put all your keys here in this jar
We’re to stay now anyway who needs a car
Step up, grab a card or shoot a ball
Come on take your pick ‘cause we have got it all
Guess what, Kyle is passed out in the hall
Making memories is always the right call
Track Name: Swimming
Swimming

It was a Monday when I woke up in mid July
I finally gathered all the courage to realize
That the girl I despise was living above me
Rewind to January flying so high again
I fell in love with a girl and she reeled me in
When I reached the shore I was drop kicked to deep sea
Present day and I am back to where I began
I’m simply standing on my feet in the shallow end
But here comes a girl, to mess up my world
And knock me down again, oh

Step back and take a look around, oh
Don’t you know that everything is lost before it’s found, oh

Will I every live this down, when I fucking leave this town
There’s something wrong cause I can’t move on
Until someone find me
Something isn’t going right, cause I was all alone again all last night
Will the cycle end, I can’t find a friend
When she’s always on my mind

It was a new city and a new career
It took a lot of fucking trouble to get here
But I met a girl who caught me right away
She had the looks the brains and the dream
She had every little something that I need
But she had a man and it ruined my whole day
Present day and I am back to where I began
I’m simply standing on my feet in the shallow end
But here comes a girl, to mess up my world
And knock me down again, oh
Track Name: Car Crash
Car Crash

I went out Friday with the guys, I met a girl and it was no surprise
She wanted me between her thighs
My baby had stayed at home, I wanted just to spend the night alone
So I didn’t get my phone
I came home later on that night, she was pissed and we began to fight
It doesn’t matter who was right
She downed the liquor from a jar, grabbed her keys and got into the car
She didn’t make it very far, yeah

It all happened so fast, a night mist, a car crash
A last wish, a last breath, a regret before death
A streetlight, a siren, a hole dug, a violin
All memory is a blur it’s too late to save her

Who am I supposed to be, I’m sick of living here in misery
The walls close in on me
I’m out of fuel to feed the flame
I still refuse to play the fucking game
Do you even know her name

It all happened so fast, a night mist, a car crash
A last wish, a last breath, a regret before death
A streetlight, a siren, a hole dug, a violin
All memory is a blur it’s too late to save her
Track Name: This Is Love
This is love

Another morning well I wake up late I have no place to go
But I don’t worry I still have my faith the only thing I know
I met a woman that I can’t let get away, so wise and beautiful
So many feelings that I struggle to convey, still inexcusable

I want some honey I finally get a taste and then it goes away
And it’s not funny but when I turn around they’re laughing anyway
Nobody ever told me love was destiny, I just hoped it true
And now she’s leaving but she’s not too far away, I’m losing my virtue

This is love, this is love, this is love x2

She lives above me even closer than she did before the end
And lines are fuzzy, I’m in love with her but she calls me a friend
And I just wanna wake up next to her again and breathe her in so deep
I’m in a pickle ‘cause my love is genuine, but talk is still so cheap

Hey there baby dry your eyes tonight yeah
You know I wanna be together
They say it gets easier but that’s not true
The burning sun just fades the leather
And though the pain will fade well nothing else will stay the same for long
This I assure you
You may be in my arms or one day soon I’ll sure be gone just know
That I will always love you
Track Name: Stuck
Stuck

The wind blows her hair around
I’d like to be there with her but I just get pushed back down
It doesn’t matter what I say every day everything is just gonna fall apart again
Well I guess I oughta know how it goes by now
We’ll never be more than friends

Her eyes draw me in like a black hole
My mind and body shake and though I try, I still lose all control
And I don’t know if it’s her lips or her hips or her mind, but I can’t escape the notion
I just wish that she was mine all the time for good
Here comes the demotion

Stuck in between a rock and nowhere
Friends say to leave, but I still don’t care
“You’re gonna be here forever and ever,” they say
So, let it be, ‘cause I’m in love with her
Track Name: Never Be Found
Never be found

I woke up simple and happy today
It’s been a long time coming
You see for years I feel I was wasting away
But now I’ve hit the ground running
Yeah, I’ve been alone for such a long time
I got so good at faking
But now she’s here and I fear I’m losing my mind
And I just cannot take it

I’m all alone, I don’t belong, I must be strong
I’m moving on, I’m moving on

Yeah, someone’s always breathing down
And I can almost hear the sound
She’s right behind me gaining ground
But I will never be found

I woke up depressed and lonely my friend
It seems I never left here
I wrecked my bike and spent my saving again
And now I’ve run out of beer
Yeah, I fuck it up so often it seems
The shit it keeps me grounded
But she’s still here and I fear it’s only a dream
I’ll never get around it

I’m not alone, I do belong, I must be strong
I’m moving on, I’m moving on
