Track Name: Lifeguard
All rise hear the verse
About some crazy universe
You must get closer to the sound
Too deep catch your breath
Know some wicked never rest
Few of the lucky run aground

Faces in the sand
Guess some beings don't make land
Don't even scratch the surface
You try don't give in
Nobody taught you to win
And see that you are still the worst

You swim way too slow guess some things don't let go
You're still circling in that pattern
A meal digests way too fast
Guess some memories don't last
You're still breathing and that's what matters

Sargasso seaweed
Guess some floating just won't be
Enough to follow you my sun
What lurks underneath
Not just the frightening deep
But all that went over your head

You swim way too slow
Guess some things don't let go
You're still circling in that pattern
A meal digests way too fast
Guess some memories don't last
You're still breathing and that`s what matters

Somebody went ................way.....................................way too far
Track Name: Candy
That's like candy on the brain
Too many feelings that are fucking you insane
You've gone too high
Come back and see
We'll mix the sweet with the sour eventually
No more complaints
You went to war
Coming down from it and you don`t know what it's for
Now in your mind
When will it end
Through all your zeal you forgot about your friends

These are the days that you may hate
Hanging you upside down and begging for restraint
Where is the trust and loyalty
Down looks so good when you crawl out of the stream

There's things you’ll see unfold
When they leave you in the cold

Touch that flame see you are still alive
Fool of anything you have yet to try
Crush that wave until it breaks
When you have nothing well you won’t hesitate

Though touched by fire
The wounds don’t burn
Can’t get the feel when you’re waiting for your turn
Don’t hold it back
Live for the sparks
Don’t be the one who is always in the dark

There’s things that seem unfair
When they leave you in the air

Touch that flame see you are still alive
Fool of anything you have yet to try
Crush that wave until it breaks
When you have nothing well you won’t hesitate
Track Name: Weighing In
Who knows the fools who just walked by
Who of them are worth a try
Don’t turn or they might turn on you
Or is that what you should do

Look back the flashing of the eye
Bet you won’t put up the fight
Can’t now cause we’re all out of time

Way beyond the crimson in your heart
And your dreams that fall apart
When all along the tears you pull me through
There’s something more you knew
Than what it means to you now

Wolf packs are sniffing around the door
You know what they’re looking for
Bolt down and never go outside
Because you’re in there now to die
Seems you can’t now because you and me we’re running out of time

All along the tears you pull me through
There’s something more you knew
Way beyond the crimson in your hearts
And your dreams that fall apart
And what they mean to you now

Fools do take all your time
Please wait oh nevermind
Magic only for you
No way you are the chosen few
Emperors cannot decide
Dark Empress says you might
But The Universe says you are cursed
Running out of time
All along you’ve been convinced that it bleeds your line
All along you’ve been convinced that the gods won’t rhyme
All along you’ve been convinced that yours is mine
You’re convinced.
Track Name: Struggle
Still the bleeding hearts fall apart In the struggle
Need a steady hand and a plan for the struggle

Thrown into the ring
Well you will sing about a struggle
Life can pin you down
Stick around for a struggle

I have winning ways been here for days In my struggle
You will feel my moves
Take the abuse
My struggle

You knew that giving in would be too easy
You see the spark of truth can be oh so pleasing
You’ve been so good at falling apart
Were you that way at the start
I’ve been fighting the good fight but am I losing
I’ve been pushing hard and it’s so fulfilling
Not giving in
I choose my own
That’s what my struggle’s all about
Track Name: 89%/Sealegs
You're still drifting without meaning
We can`t cast off til you wake up

There's a hard port ahead
And of all things you dread that you crawl into
The light crosses the bow
Now you will vow that you're crawling out of it

You you dance so well
All around the truth til I can't tell
Clearly which of you I lean toward
And clearly down to me to thank the lord

Oh the weight that brings me by your side
Surely this is how how we’ll collide
Nearly now it`s me who leans too far
This must be your design below these stars

Can he settle with her who can tell
If he tries and fails is it just as well

You you you you
I had a point in mind then the wind blew
All the things we carry in the hold
Getting close I’m set to explode
Track Name: Starlit Vacuum
I’ve been suffering through my dreams and they haunt me all of my days
I researched all four extremes still cornered every way

Any ocean I can cross to get to you

We’ve been spinning around too fast honey dancing to the hive
I looked into infinity and I got too close to decide

Any starlit vacuum gets me to you

Swear I saw you across the street and you you weren’t looking that good
Then when I call out your name you don’t don’t respond like you should

Every corner that I turn I just miss you

Every corner that I turn the universe expands
Track Name: World Keeps Burning
All the air’s electric and my eyes have seen the light
I remain conflicted in the valley with the blind

Been put through the grinder but somehow I came out whole
All the things I gave away but one thing that I stole

The ground is broken pieces of a shifting chalk outline
The crowd is rendered speechless a nation on the decline

Feed us to the machine a gaping maw of doom
Thank you for the opportunity to be consumed

As the world keeps burning down
On a path they’ve chosen wills are broken
Waiting for those sounds
While we`re still rising
Still deciding

Take your lives and run lest they make you walk the line
Dumbing you down further and deny you the divine

Peer behind the curtain and see how they build the wall
Just to field the sheep still grazing into the fold

As the world keeps burning down to the charred remains a sad refrain
Will you hear the sound of the new world dying not done crying
World keeps burning down from the path they've chosen wills are broken
You can`t have me now
Not while I`m still rising
Still deciding

As the world keeps burning down to the charred remains a sad refrain
Will you hear the sound of the whole world dying not done crying
World keeps burning down on a path that's chosen you're not broken
Waiting for the sound of a life still rising
Still deciding
Track Name: Give
Your eyes are raised and looking outward from here
Searching the shadows for a light to appear
Came from a place you thought was oh so sincere
Now there`s a looking glass where once was a mirror
There is a message becoming quite clear

You'll give
And you'll give
And you'll give baby
How you`ll give yourself to me

Someday the clouds will part and you may see through
A shining moment when you'll know what to do
Don`t make me come down there and show you the proof
If I'm to hurt you and to be your excuse
This trip will cost you the price is the truth

You'll give
And you'll give
And You'll give baby
How you`ll give yourself to me
