Track Name: Listen To Me
When I finally lost my mind
I was drifting to sleep
I was singing that song
that you wrote for me

I don't remember a
single road we were on
the journey that took us
past the breaking dawn


I don't know you
and you don't me
this is no longer a test
this is reality

Listen to me
and
I'll listen to you
It's easy enough
when you asked me too

At one point
days were important to me
But I can't seem to
remember why i would
want them to be

March 5th wasn't a typical tuesday for me
I remember that date
it isn't easy for me
oh can't you see?

My days got short
but my nights got long
I never could sleep
I was always lying wrong
What's wrong with me

Listen to me
and
I'll listen to you
It's easy enough
when you asked me too

I remember waking up that morning
and I couldn't get out of bed
I remember waking up colder
with a pain deep in my head
I knew it wasn’t my fault
but I messed up again
maybe I can get better
or maybe this is the end.

Listen to me
and
I'll listen to you
It's easy enough
when you asked me too
Track Name: Someday
I am my own villain
trying to hold on
and If I am not willing
you know that I am wrong
Some things I can't ignore
that's what I fear most
And even when I'm poor
I want to be the host

Someday, I'll stumble on the truth
Someday, when this is all through
I'll have something to do, a little more for you

The shape that we are in,
is troublesome at best.
But when I look at you,
it's gone like all the rest.
Things could be much worse,
it's true I have no plans.
I may have at one time,
that was before I was a man.

Someday, I'll stumble on the truth
Someday, when this is all through
I'll have something to do, a little more for you

What I done before,
has brought me to the floor.
Get inside my head,
before you go to bed.
Know that you are sure,
before you close the door.
I guess I missed a sign,
perhaps you'll go and run and hide.

Someday, I'll stumble on the truth
Someday, when this is all through
I'll have something to do, a little more for you
Track Name: Lately (feat. Eyas)
Lately,
I've been dreaming nightly
and they all just seem to fright me
and I need you to say.

That I'm stronger them
They take me again
You'll be here till the end
They never thought we’d say.

Where ever we go
well lay down on the road
and well kiss so slow
just to say so.

Hold on
Hold on
Let's get a move on.
Hold on
Hold on
Let's get a move on.
Hold on
Hold on
Let's get outta this town.

Lately,
I've been watching tv
and the news will stop
and scare me
Now I can't leave my bed.

Some pictures and sounds
and these groups of frowns
I need you to around
to say it fake.

Hold on
Hold on
Let's get a move on.
Hold on
Hold on
Let's get a move on.
Hold on
Hold on
Let's get outta this town.

Hold on
Hold on
Let's get a move on.
Hold on
Hold on
Let's get a move on.
Hold on
Hold on
Let's get outta this town.
Track Name: The Ground
I threw my clothes on in the dark.
I heard my mom saying that you had called.
Colder than ever before
The second I woke up
I think I knew what was in store.

I am old enough now,
I can finally see your feet leaving the ground.
I am old enough now,
I can finally see your feet leaving the ground.
The ground
The ground

You said you'd live on forever
Why would I believed that at all.
We ran downstairs and that's where you were
You were no longer anybody,
You were just a body on the floor.

I am old enough now,
I can finally see your feet leaving the ground.
I am old enough now,
I can finally see your feet leaving the ground.
The ground
The ground
Track Name: Take Care of Me
Rain falling on the roof,
Hope it gets better soon.
I’ve been stuck here three days,
Wanna feel the sun’s warm rays.
My fevers gone, I’d go out if I could.
No matter what, I just feel no good.

Someone please take care of me tonight.
I can’t sleep oh please turn out the light.

My body’s in so much pain,
Makes me go insane.
Medicine’s all I got,
How do I know to stop?
I am barely breathing what can I do?
If you had this you’d be tired too!

Someone please take care of me tonight.
I can’t sleep so please turn out the light.

Can’t stop sleeping,
All day long,
Have no reason,
So come along.

Ginger Ale’s getting warm,
Can’t fill out my forms.
The world's ground to a halt,
Can’t help thinking it's my fault.
The heat comes on but I’m still freezing cold.
‘Fraid I have to put my life on hold.

Someone please take care of me tonight.
I can’t sleep so please turn out the light.
Track Name: Your Cards
I just turned 23,
I got very little left in me.
I was waiting here for your cards,
I guess it can't travel that far.

and I know that you can see me be
just the man I started to be.
and I hope I made you proud
I hope I see you now.
Smiling down at me
at me

Hold on now,
I'm upside down
trying to reach my feet
Last time I checked
I had a little regret
and always kept it beneath me

And I hope that someday I'll feel complete,
Now I hope someday I'll feel complete.
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Love You
Are you satisfied
with this self disguise?
or should I just go back
to loosing my mind.

Is it self demise?
to tell you why
I fell for you
or do you need a sign?

There was a diamond ring,
for this perfect thing.
But when did it turn?
Leaving me blind.

I don’t wanna love you, anymore.
I’m finally ready to get back off this floor.
And I don’t want to cry, anymore.
I’m done with all these feelings I’ve had before.

This Horascope is a fucking joke.
I can't believe these things
They're just full of lies

The sacrifice,
Isn't it nice?
But it's how I felt,
when you threw me aside.

This is the second time,
That you crossed my mind.
Since you said goodbye,
and now I wanna cry.

I don’t wanna love you, anymore.
I’m finally ready to get back off this floor.
And I don’t want to cry, anymore.
I’m done with all these feelings I’ve had before.

You don’t know
how I feel.
Now that you left
I have to deal.

I don’t wanna love you, anymore.
I’m finally ready to get back off this floor.
And I don’t want to cry, anymore.
I’m done with all these feelings I’ve had before.
Track Name: On to the Next One
Someone said,
like the way you sound tonight.
And they said,
you don't look quite right.

You're to young for us,
You're not someone we could trust.
I'm sorry you missed the bus.

On To The Next One

I just know,
I could do that in my sleep.
Give me a change,=
I’m not in to deep.

Sorry please don't reply.
Give someone else a try.
Thanks for your interest goodbye.

On To The Next One

Telling me,
you only need half my time.
40 to 15 hours,
that's a crime.

Not what you're hoping for.
budget don't allow for more.
Don't like it theres always the door.

On To The Next One
Track Name: Don't You Know (feat. Clayt)
I thought it was a normal day,
till you started to slip away.
Now I'm wondering the last thing,
that I said to you.
Did I scream?
Did I yell?
Did I shout my way to hell,
like I do?

O don't you know
O don't you know
That I need you
That I need you
And all the little things that you do

The shrine of the sacred heart,
Is what keeps me away.
That's when I noticed it's been a long time,
Since I prayed.
Maybe I'll change,
maybe I'll get better
but I doubt it I'm not the weather.

O don't you know
O don't you know
That I need you
That I need you
And all the little things that you do

Showing so much love for me
love for me

Momma I love ya,
Our bond as strong as ya love is,
Thinking bout ya if wonderin,
About how far that ya son is....
Peep just how far the moon is,
A view as beautiful as you miss,
Space in my heart, exclusive,
A star is what you produced and...
You helped me reach my conclusions,
'Fore I reached in ya fridge,
Was little, this it's literal,
That your the reason I live...,
And that being said, I'm sorry for excuses,
All the speeding tickets, in ya car lookin stupid,
Always hard-headed, still hard to reduce it,
Still you encouraged, when I started with this music....
Believe in me, I know,
Hope one day I'll be as strong,
Before I see you go,
If you don't, you need to know...love you.


What you've done for me,
Showing so much love for me,

O don't you know
O don't you know
That I need you
That I need you
And all the little things that you do
Track Name: Already Gone
Packed my bag last night.
Nothing left for me.
There is a whole wide world out there
that I'd like to see.

So, tie your shoes.
Get out of bed.
Can we choose the road instead?
I know we left all except for

I'm already gone.

Lord I hate my job,
happy that I got one.
But ask me on a day like this
I'm way past done.

I wish I could,
quit today.
Then it would
keep me sane.
Stand by me
while I proclaim.

I'm already gone.
Track Name: I Wish I Knew You
People are always telling me,
the money they think that I will need.
Just to pay my fines,
I think I'll be just fine.

When I'm reaching out,
for the hands of time.
You always fast forward,
but I want to rewind.

I wish I knew you,
when I was young.
There so many things
that we could of done.
I wish I knew you,
when I was young.
Maybe then I could have been
the only one.

I wish sometimes I felt right,
even when I know I'm not right.
Is it to much to ask?
How should i even ask?

When I'm reaching out,
for the hands of time
You'll take yours
but I won't take mine.

I wish I knew you,
when I was young.
We have left too many songs,
unsung.
I wish I knew you,
when I was young.
Maybe then I could have been
the only one.
