Track Name: Valley (feat. Tucker Hill)
Walking fast through the valley, walking fast through the peek.
Rising up though my body, sinking down to my feet.
Lost and found I was searching, I found gnashing of teeth.
To the top of the mountain and from there I find peace.

Riding fast down the river, feel the wind in my hair.
I don't know where I'm going and I don't really care.
For the wind knows it's way, and I'm finding it hard to bear.

We're going up to the top of the world.
We're gonna find what keeps us alive.

When I dream at night I wonder where you are.

I wake up, I'm all alone, I noticed I never knew you.
I wake up, free from care, I noticed you were never there.

We're going up to the top of the world.
We're gonna find what keeps us alive.
We're gonna live right now, because we could die right now anyway.
We're gonna find what keeps us alive.

When I dream at night I wonder where you are.
Track Name: Rat Race
It's been a while since I've been home it's a struggle everyday.
I work all day and spend all night taking the pain away.
It's never been so very clear what I'm fighting for.
But the more I chase, the more I face, it makes me want it more.

The day is done, I lay my head down.
My name it keeps spinning around and around.
Tomorrow I don't think I'll revive.
Tonight I don't think I'll survive.
I feel myself slipping away.
Track Name: Rich Man
I thought that I could live without the money.
I said it each and everyday.
I thought that I could sing songs of freedom,
And watch it all float away.
I'm sick and tired of being lonely.
Even if you love me everyday.
I'm sick of thinking who I wanna be, and I just wanna be.

I don't wanna be a rich man,
I just wanna know that I got what I need.
I don't wanna be a loner,
I just wanna know how to be alone.
Can you show me how to be alone?

They say the grass is always greener,
And everything I see is gray.
I've been walking toward that distant light,
Just another day.
I can hear you saying walk right.
Everybody's saying walk right.

I don't wanna be a rich man,
I just wanna know that I got what I need.
I don't wanna be a loner,
I just wanna know how to be alone.
Can you show me to be alone?

I can hear you saying walk right.
Everybody's saying walk right.

I don't wanna be a rich man,
I just wanna know that I got what I need.
I don't wanna be a loner,
I just wanna know how to be alone.
Can you show me how to be alone?
Track Name: Mysterious as the Moon
Beautiful night, transparent night, I walk through the door, step into the light.
It shined off your hair, as you caught my eye.
You noticed me and I noticed you.
I say hello how do you do, the things you do.
Mysterious as the moon.

No matter how full the moon is, it still has a dark side.
The sun shines through your eyes.
Telling me no lies.
Eclipse to disguise, hiding inside.
The stars all align.
Your mysterious as the sky.

Make your way through the night.
The way the light found it's way to the sky.
Although it took a long time, for it to reach our eyes.
I'm not sure where you are, though it seems very far.
Your mysterious as the stars.

No matter how full the moon is, it still has a dark side.
The sun shines through your eyes.
Telling me no lies.
Eclipse to disguise, hiding inside.
The stars all align.
Your mysterious as the sky.
Track Name: 3 is 2 (feat. Tucker Hill)
The only dream I ever had,
I poured myself into your morning glass,
I couldn't run, I couldn't speak,
Jumped in the air and slowly descending
I grabbed the floor and I pulled away,
just a dog in the ugliest game.
when 3 is 2 then 1 is 10.
We fight hard and never win.

The only dream I ever had,
Tucked in the fold of the everyman.
Awake to street lights passing by,
Inside a car that no one drives.
Off a bridge into a black abyss.
A tragic ending, beginning bliss.
A light arises I hide my face,
The 3 connect and 1 remains.

The only dream I ever had,
Upon a shore of lies made of sand.
I feel the warmth, the sun's only light,
It soon forsakes us into the night.
The ocean sends forth it's call of doom,
The waters rise the beast consumes.

I take a breath, I take a bite,
I smell the flower, I taste the light,
I hear the colors I see the sounds,
Another dream, another round.
Track Name: The Bridge
We took a drive, it was the first of march,
And march we did to the beat of our own drum.
Our summer skin, the summers gone, the summer soon will return again But not as when we were young.

We crossed a bridge and now we're looking down from it,
The world never seemed so small.
We spoke of love, we spoke of us, we wrote our names in the dust
And the wind shows it not at all.

Turn around, feels like it never happened.
Turn around, we'll never get back.

When that feeling eludes you and the people salute you.
You've got no time to cry.
You look around your lost again without a friend.
It all starts where it ends.
But you've been here before, if you open up that door,
your crossing a line.
You smile wide like all is fine but something is building up inside,
you scream out loud it's too late to hide.

Turn around, feels like it never happened.
Turn around, we'll never get back.
Track Name: Straight to Mars (feat. Zach LoPresti)
Rats in the sewer coming out because they swore they knew her.
Give her the pig to lick the stickiest of sticky fingers.
Red white and blue was shining brightly under man hole covers.
return to sunlight it's a dirty neon under cover.

Blind eye lead us to the light.
Find the past time paradise.
My life, leaving with the tide.
Just tell me, who is it determined by?

Intelligent life, the water flows the power grows.
Inherited pride, breathe it in and feel alive.
Rise up, kill the weak and keep the climb.
Polluted and lie.
Majority and still divided.

Blind eye lead us to the light.
Find the past time paradise.
My life, leaving with the tide.
Just tell me, who is it determined by?

Looking for answers inside of my bones.
Reading out loud but the words come out wrong.
Tired and telling me where I belong.
I've got no use for sympathy for the ignorant ones.
I've got nothing to hide
Nothing to lose
Nothing to gain
Nothing to use
I got nothing.

Blind eye lead us.

Blind eye lead us to the light.
Find the past time paradise.
My life, leaving with the tide.
Just tell me, who is it determined by?
Track Name: Shrink (feat. Alec Sye)
I get the feeling that your running away
Your eyes look into mine like you got something to say
But then every time I'm thinking that your about to break,
You run your hands up my leg and I just give it away.

Your behavior so destructive, seductive, the way that you push me around.
Your always picking fights but then again every night you always end up going down.

I can't be your shrink,
"lets have another drink"
Baby just slow down, you've had enough I think.
I'm trying to get you home, you've got inside my head,
Your never satisfied, until I put you to bed.

What kind of witchcraft have you created, you got me under your hex.
You got me so frustrated but whenever I'm around you all I think about is...
Oh it's too late I'm done with the madness, I gotta get out of here quick.
I'm going home right now but as I reach for the door she goes and reaches for my....

I can't be your shrink,
"lets have another drink"
Baby just slow down, you've had enough I think.
I'm trying to get you home, you've got inside my head,
Your never satisfied, until I put you to bed.
Track Name: Black Pockets
Look in my eyes and see inside.
Brain and mind you couldn't find.
Feel the walls and feel it all.
Wake up, feel tall, black hole consumes it all.

Crossing arms, to hold your heart.
Taste of blood, as you run, as it starts.
Close the door behind and lock it.
Slip hands in to pockets.

Living in your head
Black hole, deep pockets.
Keep it all in now
Till it rips through the bottom.
I'm headed toward something
And it sucks me in.

What happens on the other side.
Track Name: Sometimes
Sometimes I seem to lose all of control in life.
Even when I'm high, I still feel that I'm a low life.
Somewhere back then, where the story never ends.
We were all pretending, so here we go again.
So lets try something new.

Sitting here thinking that everything will be ok.
Imagining that I will be somewhere someday.

Somethings never change, like my feelings for you, it's true.
Through and through.
Seasons come and go, but I know it will snow in June,
From the moon.

Sometimes I'm living, sometimes I'm not.
Sometime the only road is not the one I got.
Sometimes I'm the only one that you love.
But sometimes is never enough.
