Track Name: Igniting the Path
I know that hope seems far,
But we just can't give up
You say, "These times are hard."
...Excuses we make up
My feet are overwhelmed from carrying this weight on
With every solid step, I get closer to it

I refuse to not try,
Remembering, I'm still alive
I only get one chance to live this,
Igniting the path, darkened in front of me
Track Name: Maybe Someday
It's 6pm, I'm just waking up
Been working the night shift for the past few months
I don't recognize this face anymore
Darkened eyes, I'm always fucking tired

My bones feel like they're crumbling
Crumbling inside of me

Maybe one day,
I will live my dream
Maybe some day,
Things will change for me
I'm feeling so empty

This isn't what I wanted for me
Following traditions of my family tree
They said, "You won't get far, You won't grow up.
Those fantasies, don't take 'em seriously."

My life feels like it's crumbling
Can you blame me for wanting more?

Maybe one day,
I will live my dream
Maybe some day,
Things will change for me
I'm feeling so empty

It's getting harder to wake me up
It's getting harder to cheer me up
I'm not content with who I am,
And what I'm doing

Every time I clock in, I feel so worthless
Losing time with my friends, It's just not worth it
If I could leave this all behind,
I wouldn't think twice

I'd look back and say
I've wasted all these years
Drowning in my fears
Bring me back home

Maybe one day,
I will live my dream
Maybe some day,
Things will change for me
I'm feeling so empty

It's getting harder to wake me up
It's getting harder to cheer me up
I'm not content with who I am,
But life's not over yet!
Track Name: Looking Forward
Woke up today with a brand new mentality
Forgetting the pain, boiling inside of me
Mistakes that I've made
Had me at the edge of my faith

I'm looking forward to better days,
A negative outlook's not for me
You might as well be covered in concrete,
Hammered away by society

It's never too late to change
CHANGING FOR MYSELF
I'm gonna stay positive
FOR ME AND NO ONE ELSE

Woke up today with a brand new mentality
Forgetting the pain, boiling inside of me
Mistakes that I've made
Had me at the edge of my faith

Nothing can hold me back
TODAY'S A BRAND NEW DAY
Keeping myself on track with a
BRAND NEW MENTALITY
With a BRAND NEW MENTALITY
With a brand new mentality
Track Name: Just a Phase
There's no heart here, there's no meaning
All these kids have got no feeling
What a waste of my time
Only here for the wrong reasons
Surrounded by so many clueless individuals
This isn't my home
'Cause honestly, it's not for me

It's more than just stretched ears and tattoos
More than just breakdowns and dumb crews
Find the truth, see what it can do for you
I understand, this is NEW TO YOU

They come, they go
It's just a phase for most
I appreciate everything it's done for me
Bad intentions with nonconformity
IT'S JUST A PHASE

You might dress and look like me
Truth is, that you'll never be the same
The same as me
You're just a fake,
Only a matter of weeks before you change your ways
To the next trend
You can't seem to stick to anything

It's more than just stretched ears and tattoos
More than just breakdowns and dumb crews
Find the truth, see what it can do for you
I understand, this is NEW TO YOU

They come, they go
It's just a phase for most
I appreciate everything it's done for me
Bad intentions with nonconformity

You walk hard behind your friends
Faking you've been a part of this, longer than them
I guess you did a little research,
Staying up all night, wasting your time

Truth is, you gotta have some SOUL
Truth is, it comes NATURAL
Trying so hard just to fit in
Without pride, It's not alive

They come, they go
It's just a phase for most
I appreciate everything it's done for me
Bad intentions with nonconformity
THEY COME, THEY GO
IT'S JUST A PHASE FOR MOST
IT'S JUST A PHASE!
Track Name: Mom & Dad
When I was younger, my parents risked it all
Day by day, they went to work
To support me and my twin brother
I'd like to thank you for giving up your dreams for me

You made me who I am today
And I only wish to make, make you proud of me
Make you proud of me!

Mom and Dad, you gave it all you had
I know it wasn't easy
Mom and Dad, You'll always have my back
And I'll always respect that

Now that I'm older,
I realize how my actions lead my life
You were always protecting, never neglecting
You gave without expecting
Taking hold of both my hands, you would swing me
Warning me to always land on my two feet

It worked out for the better
Although, sometimes we slip away

Mom and Dad, you gave it all you had
I know it wasn't easy
Mom and Dad, You'll always have my back
And I'll always respect that

You taught me to stick up for my thoughts and feelings
Respecting the weak, that all man is made equal
Expecting the worst that this world has to offer
I know I'll be okay
I KNOW I'LL BE OKAY

'Cause you were there for me
You were there for me
Track Name: Friends
Remember when we used to sing
Along with the bands that filled up our hearts
Moments that felt so unreal
Catching a chance, you jump into the sea of hands

You'll float away like this memory
And we're older now,
You said this day, this day would come

I miss all of my friends
Everyone's gone, doing their thing
I miss all of my friends
I wish they were here, hanging with me
Hanging with me

My best friends are moving away
As others stay, working all day
Forgetting the last time we sang
Catching a chance, you jump into the sea of hands

You'll float away like this memory
We're older now,
You said this day, this day would come

I miss all of my friends
Everyone's gone, doing their thing
I miss all of my friends
I wish they were here, hanging with me
Hanging with me

You sailed away on your own journey
Abandoned the ship that held you and me
I won't forget
No, you can't forget
No matter how far we slip away,
Remember, we had our glory days

Everyone's gone, doing their thing
I wish they were here hanging with me

I miss all of my friends
Everyone's gone, doing their thing
I miss all of my friends
I wish they were here, hanging with me
Hanging with me
