Track Name: Swipe Right
I’ve been told that my generation’s gone to waste and we’re
Short term on the choices that we make on love and we’re
Burnt out on the 4 inch screen and swiping right on those
One night stands that will leave us wanting false pretenses

I believe that it’s more than just a silly game cause I’ve
Been burned I’m not one for making first impressions
Was she right in front of me? Did I take for granted my surroundings?
Is it up to me say what I’m really thinking cause

I can’t promise her tomorrow,
I’m not staying here tonight
Just a stranger in my bedroom
And I don’t know if she’s alright
Chasing empty conversations
Does she even feel the same?
It’s funny how I think she’s everything
When all I know is her name

She’ll get the better parts of me
I’m not afraid of honesty
Why’s it so hard for me to
Strike up a conversation

Don’t set the expectations
Nobody here is perfect
Give me a chance to be there
It’s time to be courageous
I hope that I’m courageous
Why can’t I be courageous
Track Name: Catch Me If You Can
They’re finally catching up to me, It’s something I don’t believe
How far behind I really was, and what stood in front of me
Somewhere the needle hit the head, I felt I got a grip
I feel the heat beneath my feet, and this is not over yet

I think I’m getting the hang of this (now it all make sense)
Feels like I’ve wasted a lifetime to find where I fit in
And I’ll shoot straight through the ceiling at a hundred and ten
I can’t see them from where I am catch me if you can

You won’t amount to anything, that’s what they said to me
1 lap 1 mile left to go, nothing to hold me down but gravity
I spent a lot of my days, feeling slow and defeated
Moving through life with these crutches I never needed

I think I’m getting the hang of this
Feels like I’ve wasted a lifetime, to find where I fit in
And I’ll shoot straight through the ceiling at a hundred and ten
I can’t see them from where I am catch me if you can

You won’t amount to anything, that’s what they said to me (2x)

I think I’m getting the hang of this
Feels like I’ve wasted a lifetime, to find where I fit in
And I’ll shoot straight through the ceiling at a hundred and ten
I can’t see them from where I am catch me if you can
Track Name: All in My Head
I can feel the pain all through my chest
Torments the soul which I’ve been cursed
I saw the light shine in my eyes
And it burned in me all through the night
Bitter days that led to sleepless nights
Where I stayed until I went insane
I woke in sweat you said my name
It’s not the world it’s starts with with me

I count the seconds in a day and it’s just enough for me to scream
The world around me has gone insane and who would have thought we'd see the end
No one that's left will fight for change they’ve taught us fear and that will stay
You can’t hold me back, you can’t kill my voice, you can do your best but I’ll take your life
They’ll try their best but they’ll never stop me

Tell me that it’s all in my head
That my fears aren’t real and the world is never ending
Breathe in while the air is still sweet
We can never go back from a world that's always changing

I see the road in front of me
Guarantee of instability
Now I’ll fight the big machine that says
Where I go and who I try to be
I don't have a choice the world will die
Do you really think that we won’t fight?
You can’t hold me back, you can’t kill my voice, you can do your best but I’ll take your life
They’ll try their best but they’ll never stop me

I always knew monsters were real
I just never thought they’d rule the world (2x)

Tell me that it’s all in my head
That my fears aren’t real and the world is never ending
Breathe in while the air is still sweet
We can never go back from a world that's always changing
Track Name: Dropout
Sometimes I look up to the sky and wonder why I'm here
Will what I say have mattered if my soul was never real
What's different about me today is there's nothing in my way
But I'm waking up from yesterday and nothing here has changed

I'm wandering these streets alone
Am I strong enough here on my own?
If I stay, I don't think I'll ever change
Will I find my back home?

Where will I be in 4 more years?
If I knew the answer now would I still fear?
The thoughts inside my head that I don't believe,
Am I half the man that I'm supposed to be?

One night I left the confines of this God forsaken room
And I breathed the air so heavily cause it never felt so good
The words had built inside of me but I never understood
The laws that said we built these walls and we sealed them off for good

I'm wandering these streets alone
Am I strong enough here on my own?
If I stay, I don't think I'll ever change
Will I find my back home?

Where will I be in 20 years?
If I knew the answer now I know I'd see
It's there in front of me but I can't believe
That I let the voices get the best of me

Don't listen to what they say
Everything you imagine falls down on its face
I want to be free, I’ll break off of these chains
I'm running from the fear inside myself before I go

Don't listen to what they say
Everything you imagine falls down on its face
I want to be free, I’ll break off of these chains
I'm running from the fear inside myself before I go
Track Name: Happy Pizza Friends Friends (feat. Denzil Hamm)
Driving down the backroads counting all the constellations
We spent the nights of summer getting lost in miles of pavement
Graduation came we got a college education
What will the world have left for us when we decide to come back home?

I miss the days when my Mom would yell at me forgetting all my chores
Grabbing pizza with my friends and staying up late on the weekends
Those were the days to remember

I was told when I was young don’t waste your time pretending
You’ve got to work and get a job the cycle’s never ending
Everyday I’m working, still trying to find my confidence
But I’d never regret all the time that I spent here

I miss the days when my Mom would yell at me forgetting all my chores
Grabbing pizza with my friends and staying up late on the weekends
Those were the days to remember

I feel the time is passing and that’s how I know I’m wasting my life 2x
We are the generation 2x
Who make up the difference 2x
We stand on the shoulders 2x
Of giants before us 2x
Track Name: What May Come
They hide in empty hallways
Sometimes are waiting for me
I know they've all been watching
and that's worse than being lonely

Someone saw me die tonight
What I can't control I cannot accept
Cause I'm worthless, shameful, I've grown tired of this
Please tell me this

Don't have fear for what may come today
Someday everyone will know my name

Show fear, and that's your downfall
You can't go in swinging blinded
Stand up for what you're made of (ha, see what we did there?)
You've got all your life to prove it

Someone saw me die tonight
What I can't control I cannot accept
Cause i'm worthless, shameful, and I've grown tired of this
And I don't exist

Don't have fear for what may come today
Someday everyone will know my name

God give me the strength
That I may see through today
That the voices remind me that I do exist
That i do exist
That i do exist
That i do exist
Chorus (screamed)

Simultaneous
Give me the strenght to see through this day 2x

Don't have fear for what may come today
Someday everyone will know my name 2x
Track Name: What You're Made Of
They won’t be your friend, cause they see you so much differently
And that hurts to say, I know pain that you feel everyday
And it’s hard to say, that life from here gets much easier
So don't fuel their doubts, you'll shine bright enough to burn the place
Could I take the adolescent me
And show him the man at 23
Cause that boy from then is still inside
I’d tell him today

Spend your days back early in the Summer
Leaving behind the world you've come to know
You know the best days to remember
Are the ones still yet to come
Don’t forget what you’ve learned here so far
That words are weak and nobody else will say what you’ll become
You'll let go of the days that you spent
Pretending you don't exist

Is it my turn now to show him there is another way
To say when and how, and be confident we're all the same
If I knew back then would my life have ever really changed?
It's not where you've been, it's the day you learn to breathe again
For my friends who said that I could be
I'll give all my days so thankfully
I won't waste my time collecting dreams
I'll give them away

Spend your days back early in the Summer
Leaving behind the world you've come to know
You know the best things to remember
Are the ones still yet to come
Don’t forget what you’ve learned here so far
That words are weak and nobody else will say what you’ll become
You'll let go of the days that you spent
Pretending you don't exist

Lift up your head listen to me
The best years ahead of you aren’t just a dream
Dry up your tears, let go of those fears
One day you'll grow up to be just like me

Spend your days back early in the Summer
Leaving behind the world you've come to know
You know the best days to remember
Are the ones still yet to come
Don’t forget what you’ve learned here so far
That Mom was right and you'll write the words to the story of your life
You'll let go of the days that you spent
Pretending you don't exist
Track Name: Agree to Disagree
You’re always up to something
Don’t you lie to me
I shouldn’t keep this locked inside
Or I’ll have to burn the bridge

None one here will walk away?
Where’s the honesty?
Stick to your guns and throw down the fight
This is gonna burn

Don’t blame me
I’m the only thing that seems to work
Am I sane?
Apologies that sounds like this
You’ll be alone
Regret the day you spoke to me
Leave me be

What do I need to prove to you?
I’ve got it figured out
Pigeonhole your expectations
I’ll be more than this

I demand your respect
Not afraid to dismiss
What I stand for and what it means to me
Say a prayer to your God
Beg for mercy

I am having a mental breakdown
I can’t stand on my feet
The room is still spinning
Addiction is winning
You’ve taken the life out of me
Track Name: Twenty Nothings
Stuck inside my room in bed
Leaves me in distress
I know what is best for me
Yet here I stay asleep

I don’t want to leave home
There's a monster outside
And he's watching my every move

Like a shelf on display
Can’t you see I’m afraid?
I'll be swallowed before I know

I am living my biggest regret
And nobody seems to care
In this rut I am stuck on my own
I'm just passing the time away

Every day the same damn thing
Step inside my car
Tell them what they want to hear
Let their screams subside

You can't possibly know
What it's like to be me
I'm a prisoner of my head

I need someone to say
That i'm more than this fear
That I'm wasting my life away

I am living my biggest regret
And nobody seems to care
In this rut I am stuck on my own
I'm just passing the time away
Track Name: This isn't A Love Song, It's What I Need Right Now
She closed the door on us
No words to be spoken for
I knew the timing was wrong
What did I expect her to say?

So I will be stronger, it’s unfair to say you love me if you’re not here
But still I waited, and it left a trail of scars on my neck
You said I’m lost, I'm just taking paths that no one cared to
I need some time on my own, but I will never love you

Deadlocked in reflection
Staring at the man who’s a stranger
Where am I to go from here?
Who dreams of being alone?

So I will be stronger, it’s unfair to say you love me if you’re not here
But still I waited, and it left a trail of scars on my neck
You said I’m lost, I'm just taking paths that no one cared to
I need some time on my own, but I will never love you

When did I fall in a trap
I know I’m better than this
I will be fine 2x

I will be stronger, it’s unfair to say you love me if you’re not here
But still I waited, and it left a trail of scars on my neck
You said I’m lost, I'm just taking paths that no one cared to
I need some time on my own, but I will never love you

I'm so much stronger for the words you always left unspoken
Why did I wait? I am so much better taking chances.
One thing is true... I would never find myself without you
Maybe you weren't a mistake, but I will never love you.
