Track Name: Changing
Do you know, just what it takes what it takes to lose it,
I thought it would take some time, but time wasn't on my side,
and i'm pacing, and treading backwards,
back to the place where i know that my thoughts can't invade.

And i'm looking for the faces that don't judge,
they always seem to want so much from,

Looking back i never had the guts to say what was on my mind,
now that things have changed i think that i'v realized i have lied,
to myself and to my friend, this isn't who i wanted to be,
i think i see now that this cant be reality,
forget all the things we've made, and all of the things we've done,
we're start over and pushing forward until we wake up.

And i'm looking for the faces that don't judge,
they always seem to want so much from me,
These voices and these footsteps,
i don't know which ones to follow,
these are my friends and this is my dream,
i'm taking it back one day at a time.

We will shine,

why don't you just step back for a second and see,
that i wont let this turn out the way you wanted for me,
i will not be the man you wanted me to be.

And i'm looking for the faces that don't judge,
they always seem to want so much from me,
These voices and these footsteps,
i don't know which ones to follow,
these are my friends and this is my dream,
i'm taking it back one day at a time.

i'm changing.
Track Name: City Lights
Sometimes i wake up feeling like such a waste of time,
when everyone is on my back and everything is on my mind,
its all weighing me down as i start to erode,
crushing every ounce of energy left inside this weathered soul,

Sometimes i know that these city lights,
block out the stars all through the night,
Sometimes the only way to see,
is to take your spot in the darkest seat.

Just when i thought that i was at my end,
you all came to me hear and picked me up,
and helped me transcend.
so now i know what its like to have this feeling,
friends by my side,
a bond made by fate, this feeling you cant describe,

So here we are, so far away from home,
we pulled ourselves out of the blackest of holes,
so here we are, standing right back at home,
with the best of friends, its like we never left town.

And i know there were those who werent as lucky as i,
this is for those who did not survive,
i hope now that you have found your peace,
and you can bath in the light that you couldnt see.

Sometimes i know that these city lights,
block out the stars all through the night,
Sometimes the only way to see,
is to take your spot in the darkest seat.

Dont give up, dont stand down,
there is still so much left,
so why end this now,

Sometimes i know that these city lights,
block out the stars all through the night,
but no matter how dark that it may seem,
these stars will still shine with the brightest gleam.

Dont give up, dont stand down,
there is still so much left,
so why end this now,
Track Name: Late Nights, Old Songs
Defense, hold strong, offence, fight long,
why do we try to understand these games,
and nothing tastes as bitter as breathing in her breath,
after running ten miles away from her in these street,
lights are fading from this stage, curtains closing last goodbye,
dont speak softly you only get on try,
but i get cold feet when your in the hot seat,
i have trouble breathing in your sea of discontent,

Lies are building piling up, i cant stand this, iv had enough,
fuck this place and everything, fuck all of your friends, they mean nothing,
to you i was nothing but someone to hold and grasp,
southern comfort in your glass, we both know that this wont last,

These songs for the late night are getting old,
but i never grow tired of being told,
rest your head next to mine boy and we'll find peace,
but you know these dreams they'll never come to me,

And this Florida sunrise, it only sheds light on the fact,
that you cant live your life without holding anyone else back,
your words are acidic, and your lips they spit fire,
the air is thick with your lies, i hope you drown in the tears you cry,

Lies are building piling up, i cant stand this, iv had enough,
fuck this place and everything, fuck all of your friends, they mean nothing,
to you i was nothing but someone to hold and grasp,
southern comfort in your glass, dont kid yourself cus this wont last,

These songs for the late night are getting old,
but i never grow tired of being told,
rest your head next to mine boy and we'll find peace,
but you know these dreams they'll never come to me,

Give up give up, you'll never win,
you'll only drown yourself in hate and sin,

So ill stick with my friends, and they'll stick by my side,
they'll all stand behind me when you fly,
So go to your friends, they'll all leave your side,
there will be no one left beside you when you die.

These songs for the late night are getting old,
but i never grow tired of being told,
rest your head next to mine boy and we'll find peace,
but you know these dreams they'll never come to me

These songs for the late night are still getting old,
but i'll never grow tired of being told,
rest your head next to mine boy and we'll find peace,
but you know these dreams they'll never come to me

They never, they'll never.
Track Name: Coldest December
Its late at night,
and i wish i could drive these lines into your conscience,
I drove right to the back of your mind,
past all the excuses and lies that get you by,
its been so long but i hope this gets to you,

The coldest december i have witnessed in a long time,
the coldest december i have witnessed in a long time,

hard skull thick skin,
shallow heart and a cheaters grin,
hard skull thick skin,
shallow heart and a cheaters grin,

Theres no going back after this one,
you messed it up this time,
fueling every single line,
as the fumes are reaching my lungs,
fire breathing, ill bring the light,
I hope these flames they scorch your eyes,
your being to blind to see that i have always known everything,
your too blind to see that i have always known everything,

The coldest december i have witnessed in a long time,
the coldest december i have witnessed in a long time,

The coldest december since you've been gone,
the last december that will drag on,
The coldest december since you've been gone,
the last december that will drag on,

It his me like a ton of bricks,
how did you get away with this,
the evidence so obvious,
your hands are covered in their blood,
what do you see in the mirror,
have you seen yourself lately,
im just asking because i haven't,

And i hope the cold keeps you up at night,
and i hope the frost keeps both of your eyes from closing,
just like you wanted your all alone,
the sun is rising and heating up,
the snow is melting and clearing up,
and for once in my life i think that i will be just fine.

Your the coldest december i have witnessed in a long time,
your the coldest december, and i thank you for nothing.
Track Name: Ending The Dream(Feat. Thomas Beckett of Losing Vision)
I saw your face in the dark and i think i noticed,
I saw your face in the dark and i noticed your smile,
crooked teeth, imperfect symmetry,
clouded judgement sentence me to my defeat,
now i sit writing between the lines,
bold and strait, i cant say the same about your spine.

your words just sow me shut,
im deciphering the things i could not,
speak to me and spew out deceitful things,
it wasnt worth my time,
burden me with everything, you sentence me to my defeat.

they gathered us all here in the night,
the ones who they tried to exploit,
far from what we had wished for,
the ones who died all alone and sore,
their addiction plagues them in the night,
and now this dream has become their life,
all the promise from the start, all turns to ash in a fucking spark,

The dream is ending right where we started,
alone, and we wont let it go,
now everything is depending on us,
and i swear we wont fall back to our slumber,

The dream is ending, rise from our fall,
and dont forget your past, just let it pave the way,
to yourself and to your friends, this is your life.

The dream is ending right where we started,
alone, and we wont let it go,
now everything is depending on us,
(the dream is ending right where we started)
and i swear we wont fall back to our slumber
(and i swear we wont fall back to our slumber)
