Track Name: Laughing in the Love
Four Beers Time
Wishing everlasting warmth
sitting on the cliff
with slugs in the view

deny my lullaby
as i enter
but please
serve me miss
before anyone else

a dark path but a lovely sight
my wicked time you wasted

on my conscience
afeter a few drinks
accept my friendship but take my warning
soon your body may fall.

A Dark Path But a lovely sight
my wicked time you wasted

Shove her off
wasted my time wasting your time wasting my life away
my hat tips right off your lips down to the bottom
laughing in the love i hear those bones break.

Four beers and thirty minutes long
i'll enjoy the brightness
even when you;re not there i'll remember the dim screams from bellow

a dark path but a lovely sight
my wicked time you wasted

Shove her off
wasted my time wasting your time wasting my life away
my hat tips right off your lips down to the bottom
laughing in the love i hear your bones break

shoved her now
played it calm
wipe it all away
to wake up
one step behind.
Track Name: Incompetence
Summer Day blow away
in the cold rain
where I'm happy.
when the seasons change
i sit alone next to who I am and who I was

Thinkin bout
what i missed when we
grew up
and how i told myself
I feel alive

Never let the incompetence
drive your life
to a wrong turn
we must believe that our own faults
shape us for the better

Rain rain, go away and let the
sun shine for the rest of the day of our
winter stay
when we don't belong
leaves fall
burn them all it's too much
for comfort
in a stall where love doesn't exist
in a drunk's old kiss

never let the incompetence
drive your life
to a wrong turn
we must believe that our own faults
shape us for the better

so go back with all your friends
this isn't the life
that you want
because there's not too many chances
to do right
and obtain what we deserve
Track Name: Anaheim
We'll run around
this city while the lights are down
looking for that midnight sound
to mark our place on the ground

we'll take it back
this prick of a thumb tack
not being able to subtract
the music from our soundtrack

stay with me
this can mean
so much more

lets go back to the city
march in time Anaheim
in disneyland you look so pretty
take the hand of this man
and tell me I won't leave alone

Lets turn the leaf
with memories that we'd like to keep
don't worry bout what i'd like to see
together we'll take this leap

Baby please
silently
move in forward

Cherished dreams
don't they seem
a little too cold?

Lets go back to the city
march in time Anaheim
in disneyland you look so pretty
take the hand of this man
and tell me i won't leave alone

Cause we won't see
each other again
for a long time
so hold on to me
and lets go for a ride

Lets go back to the city
march in time, Anaheim
in disneyland you look so pretty
take the hand of this man
and lets go back to the city
march in time, Anaheim
in the moonlight you look so lovely
take the hand of this man
an tell me I won't leave alone.
Track Name: Painting the Picture
I'll never really tell you
how much you always
annoy me with a different
sort of irony
like the act of ignoring
just so you can find out what
everyone else is doing
and never being focused
on what we do in the present
whether it may be important
or just for the fun
you're always on your fucking phone

You look so alone
a social network should not be a place you call home
so get off your phone
and learn to live without dependency from technology

I'll only be tolerant
of text messages
of people in need of you
know that i'll respect your time
but don't make it a problem
when I start making plans
that you don't approve of
if its the same thing you're doing
but i guess I'll take the fall
to prove to you that
this problem's a cycle
i'll never be a part of so there

You look so alone
a social network should not be a place you call home
so get off your phone
and learn to live without dependency from technology
and don't die so young
you can still experience fun in other ways
with a life time to go
just promise when you're with me to stay off your fucking phone
Track Name: Slowly
I've thought to
Give up on me
Give up on you
Cause we won't
live forever
And I've had you
to disappoint me
its all that it seems

so break away to find the truth

When I think of it darlin'
Slowly, losing
what we came here for

And as it ends
it gets harder to breathe
But we're not
gasping for air
then everything in your body
falls under a spell
and begins to fail

and then you just let go

when i think of it darlin'
slowly, losing
what we came here for
and why we wage war

We're not afraid to let go
when the time is right
we'll never know
how to fight ourselves
in the flashback of our world

so when it comes to it darlin'
slowly, breathing
what you fought for
and ended this war
with yourself.
Track Name: Daisy
Spoiled girl
without much fame
like her polo man
that fits the game
with similar desires
fenced up with wires
and a bay between
unrealistic dreams

she's tired of it all
and wants a reason to break free

well off without
no one still
interested in the money
of an old love that
showers her in memories
and a million shirts with
a house that gleams

always mesmerized by his looks
and a future fogged up in steam

the room is quiet there is no speaking
she will break the silence for him to see that
the pressure building makes her tremble
and weak in the knees to the point of tears

Spoiled girl don't
run away you're
part of this game
you'll be faced with shame
as you leave
everything
behind
Track Name: Mr. Stewart
Wise for his age
directly connected
with the expanding cage
social media active
nothing gets by
without his attention
he can take it all in
this new information

So young man
walking down the street
smiling
even though you're beat
long day coming home from school
take a dip now in the swimming pool

Hey Mr. Stewart
have a nice day
don't take us for granted
while you pave you're way
Hey Mr. Stewart
Hold your head up high
dont forget to smile
because tomorrow is headed our way

take it easy now
cause it wont make any sense
as he gives you advice
on your life's coincidence
so dear and sincere
straight from the heart
influence is crystal clear
he is the flying fox

so young man
live in color
the world can be so dark
when you're living with others
take your message accross the world
live to inspire as life unfolds

Hey Mr. Stewart
have a nice day
don't take us for granted
while you pave you're way
Hey Mr. Stewart
Hold your head up high
dont forget to smile
because tomorrow is headed our way
Hey Mr. Stewart
Carry on
leave your footsteps
so they're easy to follow
Hey Mr. Stewart
show your head is high
teach them to smile
because tomorrow is headed our way.
Track Name: How do we Change?
Not many words to say
at least everytime you stay
its not so often i see you
but i guess subtle goodbyes will do
Its been a few years since you left me
and all i can do is remember
how you showed me a new world
outside my curious bubble
and its up to me to change
how we in our different ways
lets tackle our problems sober
and know when the party's over
I've only seen you cry once
and its all due to a broken heart
yet alcohol still was the reason
you let out all your feelings

How do we change
if we dont get rid of this product in between
I know where I stand in my life
though the future's not always what it seems
I'll never forge your love that taught me as I grow older to see
There's always room for change.

The road can feel like
it goes on forever
especially when i have no direction
or a set destination
we get lost forgetting
who we are and i'm ashamed
to not be a part of the problem
or of the solution
a dream brought me to tears
with a vision of a new cold fear
in a path of snow I was
told i would encounter more loss
I'm not one to believe in dreams
but pain will always come and go
when we don't expect it

How do we change
if we dont get rid of this product in between
I know where I stand in my life
though the future's not always what it seems
I'll never forge your love that taught me as I grow older to see
There's always room for change.

I'll never touch it
I think I can live without it
there's no reason to fine out
what it could do to me
and who I established to be

How do we change
if we dont get rid of this product in between
I know where I stand in my life
though the future's not always what it seems
I'll never forge your love that taught me as I grow older to see
There's always room for change.
