Track Name: Clear Skies
Verse I
Someday ill be bigger, ill be stronger
It’s the truth. You can see it in my eyes
Pre Chorus I
And I’m already too late. And I can find my own way
through the broken leaves that we have left behind
Verse II
Its not hard to say, I cant take this any longer
But at least I can say I tried
Pre Chorus II
“ “
Half Chorus
But its clear skies from here
and we’ve bottled up all our hopes and fears
Verse III
Someday the stars wont shine bright any longer
And our names they will burn across the sky
Pre Chorus III
We wont become a memory
And we will show them what it means
To have worked so hard and gotten far this time
Chorus
But its clear skies from here
And we’ve bottled up all our hopes and fears
Ill make this clear
That its clear skies from here
Bridge
And ill make it out my own way
And they’ll choke on their words and see
None of this was make believe
This place will be mine someday
And I’ve got nothing else to prove, then to prove all of this to you
Chorus

Track Name: Smear Campaign
Verse I
I’ve been painted in a new light for a year now
They keep fucking with my name by spreading false doubts
Pre chorus I
And this smear campaign has dropped me in the deep end
Who can I call my friend?
Chorus I
If I let them take another year, well I might disappear
Ill fade out on my own
But if I show them that there’s more to see, that there’s more to me
Than ill make it alone
Verse II
I’ve paid my dues
ill prove my point through loyalty, familiarity designs
Yeah I’ve got this, and ill prove it
So much time spent frustrated
Good friends are overrated to me
Cause the great ones I call family
Pre Chorus II
“ “
Chorus II

Bridge
At times I’m not sure I can do this
I’m breaking brittle bones
But believe me I’m not fucking useless
Its just all I really know

Track Name: Chin Up
Verse I
Times when you said that we are the only ones
Thoughts in my head, “Well I should have found someone”
Pre chorus I
Instead of wasting time, thinking I’m happy in my mind
We were in love. Or so I thought
Verse II
If we pretend that we are the only ones
Naive again, now we are growing up
Pre Chorus II
Guilty of it all. I should have left before the fall
Now I’m alone again
Chorus I
Chin up!
I’m living life in spite of you
I let go of the past just like I always do
Ill resist you like the plague that you are
Yeah, I tried to be the best for you
I fell short just like you knew that I was going to
And ill hold my head up high
Verse III
Hoping I’m dead, I really don’t have much fun
All that I am….but greater someday ill become
Pre chorus III
And everyday I stay awake
I’m grateful for each breath I take
Stay gold
Chorus II
“ “
Bridge
Let me get my vape on dogg!
I never wanted to be just like you
At times it takes some great mistakes to be somebody new
I saved my liver taking hits from a bong
But my lungs they weren’t so lucky
I’ve done nothing wrong
I know I could do somebody harm
I wish I knew what was going on
Pre chorus
“Pre Chorus I”
Chorus III
Track Name: Fake Friends
Verse I
We were misread. We were foreign kids
Speaking some bullshit rhetoric
Who did you think you would protect
By keeping us ignorant?
The older I get, I try to forget
The obstacles and barriers holding me back
While ive known what ive wanted the whole damn time
And im certain this tragedy will end right
Pre Chorus I
But in a blaze of glory, we’ll share our stories
Cause you’re the only one that gets me
Just keep our secrets, they wont believe us,
If we try telling anyway
Chorus I
Hold on, don’t let go just yet
We’re so close to breaking out and we can forget
Our fake friends that depend on this small, small town
Hold on, don’t let go just yet
We’re so close to getting our we’ll never look back
On fake friends that depend on this small, small town
Verse II
The focus will shift, I have to admit
Persistence will pay off in the end
While we’ve waited and waited for just the right time
This moment is ours we were destined to shine
Pre Chorus II
And you can keep our secrets , they wont believe us,
If we try telling anyway.
Chorus II
“ “
Bridge
Take a breath, let it out, now you see again.
Relearn to live for yourself.
Ill pretend love is blind, and its in our blood.
It’s the only thing we’ve known since we’re young.
Chorus III

Track Name: Sick and Tired
Verse I
Well arent you sick and tired of doing everything they want?
When will you realize you have the ability to make it on your own?
Your strong enough.
Pre Chorus I
To keep those bruised eyes open,
And mask the pain so they cant see.
Yeah all the bullshit they’ve spoken
Is not enough to phase me.
Chorus I
Whoa, ive seen that look before
And their words wont bring me down
But it takes a lot of strength to fight them off
And hold your ground.
But their words wont bring me down.
Verse II
Well aren’t you sick and tired?
You know that you got the right stuff.
When will you realize
its not about the clothes I wear or how I do my hair
Yeah you got it son
Pre chorus II
Just keep those bruised eyes open
And fight the pain so they cant see
Yeah all the bullshit they’ve spoken
Is not enough to phase me
Chorus II
“ “
Bridge
C’mon kid, keep that head up
I know its shitty, but life kinda gets rough
And everyday you see them standing around
When you’ve been working at it since before they knew how
Chorus III
“ “
Track Name: Sometimes
Verse I
Sometimes I want you in the morning
When we just get out of bed
After breakfast, while we’re cleaning
When you kiss me on the head
Pre Chorus I
Oh yeah, you make me forget
That you can do me wrong
And then I remember….
And I don’t want to sing this song
Verse II
Sometimes I want you in the evening
When we get back from riding bikes
But how can you blame me
I’ve been watching you and your thighs
Pre Chorus II
Oh yeah, you make me forget
That you punched me in the heart
And then I remember….
And I don’t want to sing this song
Verse III
Endless nights of being cold
I’m wide awake cause the fear keeps pounding
Insisting that I never get some sleep
I haven’t seen the back of my eyelids for weeks
As if I have them
I’m not drunk just yet but this outta do it
Pre chorus III

Track Name: Follow In Line
Verse I
And I’m begging to see the light
After all that I’ve seen so far, doesn’t seem so right
Pre Chorus I
Could this be the end
of everything that I’ve known from the past to the present
Verse II
And I just want to make things right
You stood by me, why cant I take up the fight?
Pre chorus II
This cant be the end
I’ve tried way to hard to start over
And do it again
Chorus I
Maybe this time we’ll make it through it
Follow in line. Ill take you to the end
Just one step closer I can feel it
Trying harder this time, until we bring it again
Outro
And that’s exactly what we need
Verse II
And I’ve tried my hand at this one
How did we get in so deep
Our eyes are open but our mouths are sewn shut
The water’s rising and we’re sinking knee deep
Pre Chorus II
And all we offer is the chance to falter
Chorus II
“ “
Track Name: Suddenly
Intro
Everything is changing about me
And I cant seem to keep up
New places I have found, new faces are bound
to show up
Pre Chorus I
But I wont wait another minute to figure it out
I’m on to you
No I cant stop until I get it
Verse I
Your words have changed me
Now, somehow, I’ve turned into something new
Will I regret this?
My minds at the ready at least till I prove this
Can you convince me now?
All that I’ve wanted is something that you want too
Pre chorus II
“ “
Chorus I
If you take this life away
Take it back to another day
Well then suddenly I’m not alright
And if you take this all away
Forgetting yesterday
Well then suddenly I’m losing my mind
Verse II
My feet are stuck in the ground
I cant keep running away from you
Will I regret this?
With lack of me trying I just feel useless
Oh yeah, did you get the message?
All that I’ve wanted is suddenly coming true
Pre chorus III
“ “
Chorus II
“ “:
Bridge
Well do you see me know?
Find the strength it takes to knock them over and see
Cause this is your life and things could only get better
No matter how far we’ve grown I cant let you go
No I wont end this softly
And I can feel it running circles inside my head
And every minute I get closer I’m already dead
Chorus III
“ “
Track Name: Anchors
Verse I
The books on the shelf are all dusted and old
Our course has been charted
We wont see the land till we’ve grown
Are we coming back again?
There’s no way to describe this
Our hearts are still bound to the sea
Pre chorus I
No, when did this happen?
We’ve grown into men I believe
Chorus I
Anchors away
The world is at your fingertips
Close your eyes and sail at your will
Anchors away
To currents pull us under now
Its up to you to lead us away
Verse II
Ill follow the tides, the blue skies have your eyes
Every grain of sand whispers your name
The compass points north, while my minds to the south
We’re off in the darkness
Using stars instead of a lighthouse
Pre chorus II
No, we’re fish in a barrel
I’ve been told to take what I need
No, when did this happen?
We’ve grown into men I believe
Chorus II
“ “
Bridge
The winds picking up and the seas are all rough
The fears of us capsizing, we’ve had enough
And its all a dream
Pre chorus III
Are we coming back again?
Our hearts are still bound to the sea
Chorus III
“ “
Track Name: Shoulda Coulda
Verse I
I wish I had more time to say
All the things that have been inside of my mind
I’ve always looked to you
I wish I could rewind the day
And stop my favorite moments and play them back for you
So you could see them too
Pre chorus I
And I didn’t lose anything
Than the stride in my heart
Chorus I
And I should have said this sooner
I might have found its not enough
Saying words when your not here
But I’m glade to say I knew ya’
I know right now its kinda tough
Saying words when your not here
Verse II
I wish I had seen things your way
And listened closer when you spoke of your life
And all that you’ve been through
And maybe I will see the day
And make a difference in somebody else’s life
So I could be like you
Pre chorus II
And I didn’t lose anything
Than the stride in my heart
And Id rather lose anything
Than to see you depart
Chorus II
