Track Name: Unwritten Future
(Verse)
As the city burns,
The skies' light is a welcomed beacon,

As the day returns,
I think of you while the clouds roll by

I just want to hang around
I guess you'd say

(Chorus)
I don't want to be alone,
not the kind to go it on my own,
Or to wind up with a broken heart,
I just need to get back up again

(Verse)
Im a product of culture,
The landslide of unwritten futures,
All on the brink of meltdowns,
The memories of forgotten oceans

I just want to hang around
I guess you'd say

(Chorus)
I don't want to be alone,
Not the kind to go it on my own,
Or to wind up with a broken heart,
I just need to get back up again (x2)

When it all comes crashing down,
That's when you walk in the place,

As stars froze I heard no sounds,
And now I'd kill for just one taste, Baby

(Chorus)
I don't want to be alone,
Not the kind to go it on my own,
Or to wind up with a broken heart,
I just need to get back up again (x2)
Track Name: Highway Skies
(Verse)
I spent the past life keeping' plans,
But now the motor just burns,
With white knuckles and a tight-gripped hand,

The black that filled the eyes,
Have changed to highway skies

(Chorus)
I want to feel excitement,
I want to feel something inside, oh yeah,
The night screams for submission,
You can't take nothin' in the end

(Verse)
Oh, the shadows dance as the sun drops down,
They shape-shiftin' with the light,
You gotta' forget the ones who are close to you,

The black that filled the eyes,
Have changed to highway skies

(Chorus)
I want to feel excitement,
I want to feel something inside, oh yeah,
The night screams for submission,
You can't take nothin' in the end

(Bridge)
Baby shake on down,
When your love runs out

(Chorus)
I want to feel excitement,
I want to feel something inside, oh yeah,
The night screams for submission,
You can't take nothin' in the end (x2)
Track Name: Better
(Verse)
Did you ever wonder why,
I never really try,
There are very strange things,
Thoughts that the mind brings,

Did you know it all along,
Or did you hear a little song,

(Chorus)
TIme slides down the hall,
It crashes and burns,
People never return,
And once you've got it figured out,
There's a lesson to learn again

(Verse)
I remember once in here,
I never really felt fear,
That was a long time ago,
Before I lost the goal,

Are you cold inside,
Do you seek or hide

(Chorus)
While time slides down the hall,
It crashes and burns,
People never return,
And once you've got it figured out,
There's a lesson to learn again

(Bridge)
Load, get right inside oh yeah,
Love doesn't mean that much oh yeah,
Load, get right inside oh yeah,
Love doesn't mean that much to me
Track Name: Black Whiskey
I hit the city with my head in the clouds because I want to
I hit the ground with a brand new sound that turns me on
There's nothing really left to say
The future's just built to sway
Our shadows on the wall are flickering tall
I'm just another castaway

Black whiskey running through the veins the way it wants to
Black whiskey running through my eyes, now turn me on
There's nothing really left to do
My liquid lies are holding true
With our shadows on the wall, flickering tall
I grip control of you

The night cries out to us like a siren
The moon casts light on twisted grins
The summertime stars reflect off the sidewalk, oh
You're a stranger to yourself as your world spins

Let it go, your state of mind, the trails will leave you blind
You yell and yell, you're all alone, you wanna bring that feeling home
Let it go, your state of mind, the color trails will leave you blind
You yell and yell, you're all alone, you wanna bring that feeling home
Track Name: Waves Crashed
(Verse)
Words can hurt like hell,
Actions slice like razorblades, you know,

Sometimes love can just,
Disappear like seasons fade, you know

(Chorus)
Oh, when you get older,
you'll have it all figured out,

Oh the mind gets colder,
You've got nothin' figured out,
You've got nothin' figured out

(Verse)
He headed to your place,
He never felt quite so alone,

He heard the waves crash,
As the time passed,
Through the hour glass,
He should have know better by now,

(Chorus)
Oh, when you get older,
you'll have it all figured out,

Oh the mind gets colder,
You've got nothin' figured out,
You've got nothin' figured out,
You've got nothin' figured out,
You've got nothin' figured out
Track Name: Strut Rock NL
(Verse)
Life kills like a landslide,
Rolling over your bones,
No matter how hard you try,
We're all living just to die

Strut rock, downtown NL,
I wanna have some fun,
Blown minds on the dinner dates,
We used to get so numb

Drinks with the boys,
They're just faces you don't know,
While you're in outer space,
They start the show

(Chorus)
TImes don't change,
Times just move along,
and you're such a bore,
The feeling goes away,
The story just reads all wrong.
And you still want more

(Verse)
I can lie with the best of them,
I'm all talent, no hack,
There's no time quite like the present,
To kill the mind before it kills you back,
Forgotten chords and slurring of words,
So drunk, so rude,
Roadside, the cops and cars,
To feed the attitude

Drinks with the boys,
They're just faces you don't know,
While you're in outer space,
They start the show

(Chorus)
TImes don't change,
Times just move along,
and you're such a bore,
The feeling goes away,
The story just reads all wrong.
And you still want more

Drinks with the boys,
They're just faces you don't know,
While you're in outer space,
They start the show

(Chorus)
TImes don't change,
Times just move along,
and you're such a bore,
The feeling goes away,
The story just reads all wrong.
And you still want,
1234

TImes don't change,
Times just move along,
and you're such a bore,
The feeling goes away,
The story just reads all wrong.
Do you still want more,
Oh yeah
Track Name: I'd like to Know
(Verse)
We snuck off too slow,
Lost in a neon dream-state where there's no,
Body around us, so easy to notice,
The kind of high where you can't come down

Fingertips through sand,
The smell of the ocean mist revives us now,
Laughing like children,
Ready and willing,
Castways with a star-crossed gaze

(Chorus)
Would you stay with me,
I'd like to know,
The constant what-could-be's,
Wont let me go,
Be with me tonight,
Here in the moonlight,
Be with me always,
Love me baby don't go
Track Name: New Blues
(Verse)
Mornings bring the sun,
And mountains hard to climb,
I've always liked to find my own way

Thunder comes and goes,
The storms of the mind,
Is it better to drop out and float away?

Whispers through darkness,
Chill through the marrow

(Chorus)
We're floating like dead stars,
Hiding from all the scars,
Stuck with reality,
Awake for the dream until the end

(Verse)
I've been pretty out there,
Baby have you been too,
The sounds corralled me back from the brink

Whispers through darkness,
Chill through the marrow

(Chorus)
We're floating like dead stars,
Hiding from all the scars,
Stuck with reality,
Awake for the dream until the end
Track Name: Nightmare Colors
(Verse)
Don't leave so soon,
I wanna howl at the moon,
The bright midnight

Slash a vein of love,
Watch it bleed on out

When you act on lust,
you are one of us,
So don't fake it

Blow a kiss,
Share a wink,
Let me know you're there

(Chorus)
She roams in nightmare colors from the other side,
Velvet tongue, going nowhere,
She makes me wanna come down,
Makes me wanna come alive,
I just sit back and enjoy the ride, alright

(Verse)
So the night has come to its end,
And I'm the lost friend,

Don't leave so soon,
I wanna howl at the moon,
The bright midnight

Come on,
you know I'm right

(Chorus)
She roams in nightmare colors from the other side,
Velvet tongue, going nowhere,
She makes me wanna come down,
Makes me wanna come alive,
I just sit back and enjoy the ride, yeah

(Bridge)
Baby won't you stay,
Oh, you look good that way,
While we're young,
Baby won't you stay
Track Name: You're No Angel
(Verse)
The world is crazy,
Wouldn't you know?

Pitch-black silence,
is part of the show

A perfect fog has set up on the eyes,
Welcome, the season of lies

(Chorus)
How many times now honey,
Have you crawled back in?
We'll meet in the middle baby, yeah

(Verse)
And so you've got,
Just what you came for

In the stars,
In the pretty, pretty colors

I dropped out,
I couldn't take it anymore

Shot out the back door,
of your mind

(Chorus)
How many times now honey,
Have you crawled back in?
We'll meet in the middle baby, yeah

Love's a distraction I say,
A bandage for some,
Well you're no angel,
You're just a cold, hard,
Cold hard killer, you are
