You’ve got to find the light inside the dark when everything is turning upside down And the world is going crazy Now you can hide behind your mask and you can say it’s alright But we all know that the truth is quite hazy We learn to keep our distance Our fight requires persistence We come together while we all stay away We march for lives that matter While all the rich get fatter But there is nothing left for you when it’s payday I read the news but I didn’t believe it And then we heard the cries of the grieving Can’t get our shit together, feels like they’re lying We pick a fight, don’t care what’s right as we’re dying Now you can follow every post that stirs the anger up the most Who gives a damn about the truth when you’re busy You got to get behind your tribe, they know to conquer they divide They will keep you spinning round ‘til you’re dizzy I see the writing on the wall, it’s alarming Instead of healing all the wounds, they keep harming The ones who lead us are addicted to power They take it all and it’s our lives they devour They’ll take you, they’ll rape you, they’ll burn you, they’ll hate you We’ll face them, we’ll chase them, we’ll rise up, defeat them You’ve got to look inside your heart before this world tears us apart ‘Cause time is running out and we’re gonna lose it We’ve got to rise above the greed and hate this doesn’t have to be our fate There is another way if we choose it Choose it, choose it, choose it, choose it

Well I’m about to come undone, it’s never fun, like a loaded gun, I want to run I got to take it slow, try not to react, I try to lay it back and keep my vibe intact So I keep the time, and I make it rhyme, ‘cuz they’re pushing my buttons nearly all of the time I like to count it off, my lucky seven, maybe this time, it’s eleven Gang stalkers Gas lighters They build the tension Groups of three, they give release! Well he’s about to come undone, we’re having fun, like a loaded gun, we just begun Like a bird in my hand, you got two in the bush State degreed haze, my job is to push Gonna strip him, and rip him, and put in a ring, ‘til he loses grip, like an unwound string He likes to count it off, his number seven, maybe this time, it’s eleven Gang stalkers Gas lighters They build the tension Groups of three, they give release! He’s being followed, he’s got the willies We’re saying these things about him, Yeah! I’m being followed, I’ve got the willies They’re saying these things about me? Yeah! It’s me. He’s being followed, he’s got the willies We’re saying these things about him, Yeah! Followed! Willies! Saying things! Me/Him Yeah!

Down and Out 05:45
The morning light hits my face Roll out of bed, hit the floor Last night’s trials come full circle Blow it away, don’t need it anymore All I want right now Is for the tire to meet the road When the past is outta sight Then the past can finally told Light meets shadow Give meets take Muscles are burning, mind ain’t clear Say hello to the demon, goodbye to the fear As long as I can move As long as I can fly As long as I can find the route Then I’m not yet...down and out Check the mirror once again Who will I be today? Itchin’ and scratchin’ and clawin’ around The pendulum will hopefully swing my way All I want right now Is for my fire to burn the road When the past is all gone Then the past can finally be explode Light meets shadow West meets east Pistons are pumping, the sky is clear Hello, Mr. Demon, goodbye Mr. Fear As long as I can move As long as I can fly As long as I can find the route Then I’m not yet...down and out

One day, you stepped into my light Then presto change-o, you were gone Like heat that escaped out into time The only thing that I got right, is that I was wrong Goodbye, Bernice You took my heart and you threw it away So long, Bernice You’re the reason that I'll always rue the day We were a flash of fire and smoke Then a real burn began...when I awoke So clever again with your...magic trick But all it did, yeah, all it did was make me...sick, sick, sick Goodbye, Bernice You took my heart and you threw it away So long, Bernice You’re the reason that I'll always rue the day Another tease, another sting, another scene blurs I want to see pictures, and all you got is words With a flick of the hand, and a twist of the wrist For you, I swore I'd always defend But now I think we’ve reached the end Screw you, Bernice You took my heart and you threw it away Fuck you, Bernice You’re the reason that I'll always rue the day

I decide to trust again, build it up on stronger ground We had come together, with you on your way down You with so much beauty, I never had a chance But I found myself inside your world, just following your dance Now you’re always casting, your shade upon my sun Make me doubt myself, you make me want to run Always throwing your shade upon my sun Sometimes it gets so hard I’m feeling like I’m done And I know I’m not the only one It’s a subtle attack on me, shake me at my core Find the little cracks, and you break me up some more But you’ve got all that beauty, and throw it in my face Make me feel so little, I’m feeling out of place After all the rain, you start blocking out the pain And it gets so hard to feel sometimes, don’t want nobody there inside But then I saw your face and I thought I found a place Where I could free my mind just one more time Drown the past in a bottle of wine I told you, I need you You called me, your baby I trusted, to touch you But now you’re like maybe You shade me, I can’t see You make me, go crazy You stick me, I’m bleeding You hear me, I’m pleading You call me, your baby You call me, your maybe You call me, You call me You call me, You call me

I know you don’t need me as your friend But you can hang here for a while The story you left behind will end But then there’ll always be more trials You could be one, you’re on your way You could be gone so far away There’s never enough to make the grade There’s only the hours in this day You might lose your mind this time But you won’t find it, you won’t find it, You are not designed to tow the line So many times that I looked for the answer So many times that I fell so low So many times that I reached out to touch you So many times that you let me go I knew you’d be wondering where I’ve been But sometimes I just need my space I heard that you’re coming back again Maybe we can find that place I can be bad when you’re so good But I could be better if you understood Sometimes it’s not what it seems to be It just doesn’t mean that much to me

I Promise 04:11
I know I haven’t been the best at times But it feels like life is so damn hard You drag your ass up out of bed And you pray that you got it in you One more time... Another day… Put your nose to the grindstone And you just can’t wait to get home But I try...to find some hope down deep inside Yes I need to change my state of mind ‘Cause there’s got to be another way And I promise I’ll find it someday... I promise, I promise… I promise, I promise… I promise, I promise… I see the lines getting deeper on my face And it seems to get harder to keep the pace The days are dragging but they’re flying away And I don’t even know if it’s worth it To play this game... For another day... Keep running on the treadmill Keep grinding away I remember being young I believed that I could fly Everybody told me keep on reaching for the sky But life is like a heavy bag you carry on your back It weighs upon your soul...and then your dreams begin to crack But I’ll find them... I promise, I promise… I promise, I promise… I promise, I promise…

Eventide 06:19
Challenge me Take me on an adventure Where the blue of the sea meets the blue of the sky Defend me Against trials fact or fake Breathe real deep now, cuz you are free Briney lips Salty eyes The vasty deep is where Poseidon lies Reject me So I can push back against ya Open up and swallow it all, once again Funnel me Into a world that I can feel Sinking into my mind, deconstruction time Briney lips Salty eyes The vasty deep is where Poseidon lies The maelstrom comes Blows me away Even Tide is pandemonium

Humanity 06:22
I had it all in the palm of my hand But I built my house on a pile of sand The rain came along and it washed me away Left me alone under these skies so gray Can't find a fix cause I'm broken Can't take a breath cause I'm chokin' Strangers pretend not to see me I put out my cup but it's empty The loneliness eats at my soul everyday I’m lost on this earth and I’m fading away All that I ask is for some dignity All that I need is for someone to see My humanity… Moving along like a ghost on the street I’m feeling so cold then I’m feeling the heat My only possessions are packed in this cart Praying for luck as I tear trash apart Can't catch a break when I’m hungry Can’t find a place to rest easy This world is so cruel when you’re nobody They don’t give a damn, got no money

Return 04:50
For years and years, I ran away I didn’t want to face the pain I finally came around to see That I could find recovery and I stayed Shared a positive vibe I learned to thrive I saved my life I finally came around Put my feet on solid ground And my soul I found...my soul I found I finally came to see A better part of me And my soul I found...my soul I found The past still haunts me everyday I knew there’d be a price to pay Had to trust despite my doubt Had to keep the poison out Discovering what life is worth And struggle to find my own rebirth I learned to stand up to my fears And slowly the days turned into years I didn’t know, I couldn’t feel I thought that it was so unreal An empty shell, I pushed away But black and white turned into gray The road ahead is hard I know Start over again, so I can grow Grow up to see what I can be I once was blind but now I see Found my soul My soul I found I once was lost...but I have returned Yes I have returned, I have returned, I have returned
