Give me the keys cause I got a degree And I’m ready to feed all one hundred of me New life’s got me looking under the door What for? To settle the score Pit bull sniffing trying to get in my space Children tripping trying to get in my way And I just want to get paid but it’s so hard When it’s so easy His area code spelled GOD in all caps though he himself was Hopeless as a generation with no name They had eyes resembling lasers We found fun in bad behavior How does one ruin something so mundane? Never stop learning or you might get dumb Shake it to the rhythm of the hum drum My mind’s going numb My mind’s gone numb Never stop laughing or you just might cry Take it from the wisdom of a lullaby In your dreams you can fly It’s like waking up from a deep sleep a fantasy Turning over a new leaf Need a refrigerator for all that beef I’ll let you have a piece if you show me your teeth If you give me the keys cause I got a degree And I’m ready to feed all one hundred of me And I just want to get paid but it’s so hard When it’s so easy Never stop learning or you might get dumb Shake it to the rhythm of the hum drum My mind’s going numb My mind’s gone numb Never stop laughing or you just might cry Take it from the wisdom of a lullaby In your dreams you can fly

Pity 03:20
Your negativity is poisoning the room Sometimes I can't believe there are people like you Do you listen? Do you ever look to see that there are other people And they're suffering too? So I'm standing behind the counter cornered Listening to you complain Cause I look like a body Well call the coroner and let her explain You've got enough pity for two in your veins I'm spread thin like icing on a sheet cake Snip snip in pieces like a paper snowflake You can't be everything at once Can't be the hunter and the hunted I'm a liability in this room Sometimes I can't believe I've been here since June Listening to the murmur of a sea Of people looking at themselves when they look at me So I'm standing behind the counter disappointed Sipping on a cold light roast Cause I look like a body but feel like a ghost And I've got enough pity for two in my veins I'm spread thin like icing on a sheet cake Snip snip in pieces like a paper snowflake You can't be everything at once Can't be the hunter and the hunted You cant have everything you want Can't be the hunter and the hunted

Let It Shine 03:17
Look at the rain As it shines up the night Through your windowpane And keeps me sane As I know all things grow And they must decay How is this night not like the others? Asphalt mirror let me see more than I hear Tell my brothers I said goodnight Told them I cared as I meant it at the time Now the dream’s gone by And all that’s there is a happy memory They won’t bow to me I am now your queen How is this night not like the others? Asphalt mirror let me see more than I hear Tell my brothers I said goodnight And come morning let it shine

Funny thing about age Everyone does it in a different way The more we collect the more we object And days become like un-cashed checks Some don't get the respect they need But you can't wake up grumpy if he never sleeps So I stayed up all night to see the sunrise Then it dawned on me There is a rain and it's torrential As technology grows exponential Some are born to survive it The rest are left to drown But it's only life Don't let it get you down I know cause I stayed up all night to see the sunrise Then it dawned on me It's true we are all roaming stars

How is it so easy to appease me? Out of sight, out of spite You deceive me Thought you might And the song just writes itself You are a photo on a shelf You are the spirit of a smile And I thought for a second that you died But I’ve never been better than now I just keep getting better somehow So thank you for thinking that I was not worth your time My body bombarded My senses gone wild I’d scream but it’s never been my style It’s all going to shit and there’s not enough room at the inn for me I’m already tired, may never retire They say that we actually started the fire So one of a kind or one in a million, what’ll it be? I think you’re forgetting what you’re missing Though I don’t blame you for telling then kissing Cause we’ve all got bills to pay Needs to get met and lies to say to get our way And I’ve never been better than now I just keep getting better somehow Though it’s hard to believe that I was not worth your time Now it’s 5 and my mind’s already run a mile like Who are these prodigies stealing my style? Concealing the spots I don’t want them to see til I’m someone new Don’t act like you don’t do it to But I’ve never been better than now I just keep getting better somehow

Tire Bouchon 00:42
We never did find "le tire bouchon" But never gave up hope that there might be one Pushing our cork in the bottle Pushing our cork to the bottom of the bottle

Amidst all the muck and the torment The tossing and turning The wondering what wanting more meant She’s made up her mind Some people are not worth the pain What on earth has she got to gain Looking for insight from behind closed eyes? So out with the tragic In with the magic Somethings feels different now Then she had this realization Not to do what doesn’t feel right No innocent infatuation No bleeding without the bite She said, Brother I will pray for your soul That’s the sweetest kind of control I’ll stand here with my head held high Killing you from the inside So out with the tragic In with the magic Somethings feels different now Light in the darkness Calm in the chaos Give me a likeness to Thou She said, Darling it was never a waste We’re all just modifying our taste I’m not done spinning around the sun But if I want to be great, then I’d better make haste Light in the darkness Calm in the chaos Give me a likeness to Thou Give me a likeness to Thou

The Revival 03:50
I’ve been to the revival I walked out on a high I swore it on the Bible I won’t let the momentum die I wanna make it and not just talk about it And not forsake it for goodness sake I wanna change once and for all So I keep praying I don’t fall back on the woman I was yesterday This time it’s different This time it’s vision Easy to be broken when you’ve never been broke I’d swear I had misspoken if ever I had spoke I wanna yell it from the rooftops and not just tell it to an empty cup That I’m in love with a dream And I might need you on my team cause this time I’m not waking up This time it’s different This time it’s vision Hundreds of hearts all beating for the same thing Hundreds of lungs all breathing for the same damn thing And this time it’s different This time it’s vision

Dusty 03:36
You were always good at keeping a distance And I was always good at letting it happen Figured you were none of my business So you went and fell off the map I guess that’s life, right? A series of highs and silent goodbyes Wishing them well though you don’t feel they’ll be fine But what can you do? A whisper of a wish holds no weight in a world like this You were always good at keeping them guessing And I was always good at calling you names When you weren’t around And I was allowed to be vulnerable I guess that’s life, right? A series of highs and bitter goodbyes Wishing them hell through your teeth as you fake a smile But what can you do? A whisper of a wish holds no weight in a world like this What can you say when it's all been said...In your head You're a book that no one dares to read Wide spine, sharp pages that'll make you bleed I took a look like many before me and found You're bound to be dusty I guess that's life, right? A series of highs and stale goodbyes To the ones we used to know To the ones we used to need To the ones we used to love To the ones we used to be

Fading Slow 04:30
This tide is gonna win me over Will these sands keep time forever? I’m fine just looking over your shoulder Face to the wind our skin is already leather We’re already fading slow since the moment we started Rise and fall like the final break of a restless wave under angry sun It’s over as quickly as it’s begun I’d give all the four leaf clovers for a little innocence A light bursting from the black horizon And I’m fine just keeping up with your footprints Running from the world our legs are already Fading slow since the moment we started Rise and fall like the final break of a restless wave under angry sun It’s over as quickly as it’s begun
