Track Name: Forward Motion (FT James Granger)
You say, “Start over”
This was over from the start
I can’t get you out of my head
Quit pulling on my heart
You THiNK YOURE SPECiAL
You’re ESPECiALLY iNSANE
Ive told you youre crazy
Please stop messing with my brain
I can’t seem to make you go away
Lay in a haze
Your mind is like a maze

I’m losing all my Faith
And im falling far from Grace
Im not trying to hurt you
Just trying put you in your place
Im done im done im done
Ive been putting up with you for way too long

Im giving up
Im down on luck
Im making progress
And moving forward
I know things changed
Im still the same
Just a better person
Im giving up
Im down on luck
Im making progress
And moving forward
I know things changed
Im still the same
Just a better person

Petrified
Im torn to shreads inside
Your constant games
Were detrimental to my mind

Petrified
Im torn to shreads inside
Your constant games
Were detrimental to my mind
Track Name: Portrait
Your actions speak louder than words
To think your opinion matters? That's absurd
You hide a bank of lies behind your makeup
When will you learn how to discern?
The time has come for you grow up

Take off your mask, not your clothes
Put down your flask, bring back your ethos

Take off your mask
(You shower me with lies)
Not your clothes
(How can you not be exhausted?)
Put down your flask
(Why can't we make an agreement?)
Bring back your ethos

Just cuz your idols fall, doesn't mean you drop the ball
There's a difference between following idols, and copying their every move

Your actions speak louder than words
To think your opinion matters? That's absurd
You hide a bank of lies behind your makeup
When will you learn how to discern?
The time has come for you grow up

Wake up your mind

There's a reason you sleep alone
Track Name: Alleviate
It's easier to come off pessimistic
But looking with a clear mind always has it's ways
I was just a kid when it all hit me
Being 13 back when
The hell did I know then?
I saw a lot more than I should have
But now I recognize that face when I see it on strangers
Cop a smile, it wasn't money needed
Keep all your change, conceded

My understanding is publicly grasping for some sort of air
While I'm stuck in the depths of my own past decisions
But I kept my mouth shut
And looked out for your solace before mine

Why can't we defend the average man?

You want change? It's right in front of your face
Pick pocketing the poor makes a lethal circle
It really pisses me off, just lend genuine help
What left came back around

Separating the class never does anything, just creates more conflict on it's own
Break down the wall holds our unity
Don't want to be your sycophant anymore
Track Name: Worst Case Ontario (FT Kaden Birdsong)
There's no time in the day, so I'll try my best
Before the Midwest sun sinks down below the horizon
Questions, questions, questions, concerning me
But I'll be fine as long as you can't sleep at night
Hey now, pick your act up, change your frown
Money this, missing that
You're finally right, but it's hard to accept

But until then, I need some time to grow
But until then, pack up and go I just need to get some

Time to get sober, to let my lungs boil over
When will I move forward?
When will I get older?

I'm sick of settling scores, cuz I'm always down one and a fucking buck short
But the rhythm still goes on in my head
And I'm still looking for consistency to stay
"Hey pal, haven't seen you home in a while"
I'm sorry Dad, this summer's been me running back and forth between who's to blame and who's to trust
And I'll write you off the grid for the rest of the year
Because my apathy isn't worth the compromise

Time to get sober, to let my lungs boil over
When will I move forward?
When will I get older?

I'm always down one, and I'm a buck short.
Track Name: Hang Low
You walk around holding yourself up above us
As if you’ve never even had a bad day
Ignore your values and now all of your friends
Just wait until it hits you
You’ve hid yourself behind layers of ice
But anything I say can make you crack
You’re always seein red
You’re always sick in bed
You always act like you’d rather be dead

Just lower your suspicions and then leave me alone
We can go on with our lives and do this thing on our own
But if there’s one thing that I taught myself from knowing you
Its that you cant please every one (cant please everyone)

Right by the bay
Beneath the lake
I sealed my fate, I buried my hate
There will always be a fork in the road
Erase the negativity before your seed gets sowed

I'm getting sick of all of this dependence
It's like no one can think for themselves
It's always he said, she said
It's always black and white
Sensitivity never really made sense to me
It's like I'm walking on eggshells

Just lower your suspicions and then leave me alone
We can go on with our lives and do this thing on our own
But if there’s one thing that I taught myself from knowing you
Its that you cant please every one (cant please everyone)
Track Name: Settle The Score
What makes you think it's okay to take them down like that?
What makes you think you're the bigger person?
Why must you use so much force?
Do you think you'll settle the score?

You'll always look back on this day and you'll see who's to blame
I don't wanna see another life go to waste

Keep your head up high, I'll keep your opinion in mind
But just know I still have mine
This is all out war, I don't wanna care about this anymore
I just want all of this to end

Where do you see this going?
Do you see this making any progress?
What do you have left?
I'll find a reason to see past this struggle

We have to find a better way to all come together now
People shouldn't be treated this way

Why would you burn your city down?
Why would you tear such a beauty to the ground?
It's not about where your born
It's about the uniforms they wore

We know right from wrong
This has gone far too long
Just know we will stay strong
Let's not let this prolong
