Track Name: Last Day Of His Career
He walks out of this room like there was a fire
And if he didn’t get out, he’d die
He wishes a bad day to all of the men
To all of the people inside
He knows of a secret
That no one, no one will ever hear
He’s having a bad day, but it’s the last one
The last day of his career

Good evening, reporting live from the scene
Of the burning building, only one witness on the scene
Being interviewed by the police currently
If we get a chance, we'll get a word, hopefully
But for now firefighters and the rescue team
Running in the building trying to rescue things
But I don't think nobody's for the saving
Cause the fire in the windows still are roaring
Wait, Justin, I'm getting something in my ear
I think the witness is available, he's coming near
Let's see if he'll talk and hear what he's seen
"Sir! Sir! Can I get a word, please?"
My name is Scott, reporting from channel nine
I'd like a moment of your time to hear what happened here tonight
Reporting live, "Can you take your hood off?
We just really wanna talk"
"Fuck off!"
Track Name: Saturday Night
6 o'clock on a Saturday night
No time to write, no time for second chances
What's the rate of pay?
Is it worth my time?

Jack and Jim are on the scene
José and Mark, they'll be making Cuervo's whiskey
Tell me what's going on
Cause I can't see

Girls get up to drop it and pop it and lock it
Guys hit up the bar forgetting who they are
Girls get on their back, cause that's how they react
But I'm always being me

I don't know where I am
I don't have rhyme or reason
But I'll keep it going cause I'm having fun
I don't know where I am
Which way is up, or what's the season
But I'll keep it going cause I'm having fun
And the night ain't done

Lights are on, the mix is tight
My bones are right, she's behind the curtain waiting
I know she's there and it'll be all right
Doctor Love and she's my patient
Hit the draw, look I got a pair of aces
And people gonna hate but that's all right

Girls get up to drop it and pop it and lock it
Guys hit up the bar forgetting who they are
Girls get on their back, cause that's how they react
When I'm just being me

I don't know where I am
I don't have rhyme or reason
But I'll keep it going cause I'm having fun
I don't know where I am
Which way is up, or what's the season
But I'll keep it going cause I'm having fun
And the night ain't done

Let's go, lights on, no echo
I travel to the stage and hear the call, no whistle
They're swimming in the drinks that's overflown, breaststroke
Saturday night cliché: "Shots! YOLO!"
Mic check and check mic, stage set
House packed and bright lights, cue sax
Bass tone and best vocals, trombone
I walk into that spotlight, drum roll
I've been waiting for this moment like right now
I spread my wings and open heart and let it all out
It never felt more real than it does now
Cause it feels right, live on a Saturday night

I don't know where I am
I don't have rhyme or reason
But I'll keep it going cause I'm having fun
I don't know where I am
Which way is up, or what's the season
But I'll keep it going cause I'm having fun
And the night ain't done
Track Name: Breaking The News
The question's up in the air, it's been flying over
The moment we've been avoiding is getting closer
The challenge of the change, you are so afraid
As am I, but my dreams allow me to be brave
But my passion in these lights, I just really want it
But life without your love, that's just truly nonsense
As paralyzing it seems, we might just fail
Your reality and my dreams aren't parallel
But there's always alternatives to this outcome
Just drop whatever you're doing and just come
Flight ticket purchase
I know it's worth it
I beg and plead
Fly away with me

Cause a crumpled ten dollars is all that I got
My clothes come apart at the seams
And before you start to holler, recall what I'm not:
A man who gives up on his dreams
And it won't be long
Till you hear my song
And they'll all be singing it too
That's why I'm breaking the news
Yes, I'm breaking the news

I can see you're not convinced by this current news
But look at me: I'm in a lose-lose
My dream, my love, what do I do?
It's hard to envision life, baby, without you
But this pen that I wrote with, I'm so devoted to
Cause my chances are higher to make my dreams come true
In a bigger city with the brighter lights
This ain't to hurt us, it's for a better life
I get it, I got, I understand
But I gotta go with or without your hand
Flight ticket purchase
I know it's worth it
I'mma chance this thing
And follow my dream

Cause a crumpled ten dollars is all that I got
My clothes come apart at the seams
And before you start to holler, recall what I'm not:
A man who gives up on his dreams
And it won't be long
Till you hear my song
And they'll all be singing it too
That's why I'm breaking the news
Yes, I'm breaking the news
Track Name: Only For A Moment
Music's got me out tonight
Don't cut me off and don't start no fight
I'm laying it down on a moonlight night
And every little thing is gonna be all right

I here to share my song with you
Hope you don't mind I play something new
And I hope that by the time I'm through
If all goes right, I'm gonna leave with you

But I say, "Stop, wait, think
It's okay, I want you now
Girl you know that I'd love to
Climb inside your mouth, if
Only for a moment"

Well, I found you there inside my room
Pretty little flower just starting to bloom
And all that mess makes the headboard boom
Start it up, take a break, then let's resume

Girl, you get me hot like no one can
Keep this up and I'mma be your man
But if staying the night wasn't in your plan
We can go right back where we began

When I said, "Stop, wait, think
It's okay, I want you now
Girl you know that I'd love to
Climb inside your mouth, if
Only for a moment"

Stop
Dance floor
We ain't come to talk, we came to dance more
Look into my eyes, you know my plans are
I'm trying to get you home and get the pants off
Nah, love, I ain't really get to plan this
Tell your friends ain't no reason to panic
Scottie M, I'm such a romantic
Wink, wink, such a romantic
What you think about a candlelit bedroom
Burglar mind, I'm trying to break inside you
I'm going hard and it's up, times two
That's your fault in that dress, boo
Wait, wait, back to the mission
Attack, attack, soon as that drink is finished
In the moment and I hope you are as well
Overachieving is my art and I never came to fail

I hope that you've enjoyed your stay
Leave your worries for another day
Cause if there's a crowd I've gotta play
I wouldn't have it any other way
Track Name: Running Away
Don't know where to start
I don't even wanna do this
But I need to get it out
Cause I feel like I'm gon' lose it
Surrounded by these fakes
So my only friend is this music
And I always feel alone
No matter how crowded the room gets
And you can look into these eyes
Of this sociable guy
With my popular fly
Still never find this pain that I hide
But it's dying to get out
It's starting to fight with my pride
And life is such a fucking tightrope
That I'm sitting in the dark
Cause I'm afraid of what the light shows
Depression kicking in
It's got me feeling like a psycho
And I'm popping all these pills
Walking the streets in my night clothes
Anxiety just sucker-punched me
And it's cousin, stress, followed up
So, yeah, them pricks jumped me
One-on-one I would've won
So, yeah, they got lucky
And I'm running away from home
Cause I don't feel like you love me
Track Name: Hometown
I can't go back to my hometown
Everything's changed
I can't reverse my own frown
That remains the same
The buildings tell the story of the boys who run
And cracks all in the sidewalk speak of lives that end before they've begun

And I must make some change
And I must rearrange
The twisted world won't fall in on me
And I cannot bear this river stone
That pulls me under the water, the water
Till it takes me away

The city's dark and crowded
And I need my space
Words are barked and shouted
I need a slower pace
I'm constantly surrounded by the great unknown
And who will tell my story if I'm not allowed to begin to write my own?

And I must make some change
And I must rearrange
This heavy earth won't fall on top of me
And I cannot bear these fragile bones
That will walk me into the water, the water
Till it takes me away

I can't go back to my hometown
Everything's changed
But home's not really home now
And I don't know why I came
But deep inside your body is where the answer lies
Where I see my own reflection and, looking back at me, it screams and replies

That I must make some change
I must rearrange
My burning heart won't collapse on me
And I cannot rest till I make you my home
And my grave won't be the water, the water
That takes me away
Track Name: I Know
I know it's just how I feel
I know that it is just too real
What I feel for you is true

I just wanted to be different
But it's hard to be committed when you're cursed with different visions
You're a trophy in so many eyes
I'm just another guy in search for more than one night
But, I'm lacking of a gimmick
My chances are, chances are increasingly slimming
But maybe, maybe that's the vision
And I'll just work on me while I'm happily independent

I know I've sung many times
How polyphonic things can be
But with one woman in my head
And another in my head
I know she's the only one for me

I know it's just how I feel
I know that it is just too real
What I feel for you is true
I know it's just how I feel
Lord knows that it is just too real
What I feel for you is true

I know I'm not the kind of man
To let my emotions hold sway
But her voice was sweet and clear
When she whispered in my ear
And who am I to get in the way?

I know it's just how I feel
I know that it is just too real
What I feel for you is true
I know it's just how I feel
Lord knows that it is just too real
What I feel for you is true

I've got bloody palms
Crazy mind
But I had to take they life
Cause they was going after mine
She's a great gal
But who's the guy
Trying to take over my place
Trying to live my trophy life?

I know it's just how I feel
I know that it is just too real
What I feel for you is true
I know it's just how I feel
Lord knows that it is just too real
What I feel for you is true
Track Name: Icarus
Roll to the city with the bright lights
But it's kind of strange on this one night
Fly through the sky, no starlights
No way home, no streetlights
Out of my mind
Trapped in a road in the city where it's cold
Praying I survive so my story gets told
I just really wanna go
Go!

Black city roads, they never take me where I wanna go
I fly above the people below
I'm not myself, I'm not the person that I know
So, way up in the sky for me I go

So take me where I wanna go
They'll burn alone, they'll burn alone
This life weighs heavy on my bones
They'll burn alone, they'll all burn alone

Black city roads, they never take me where I wanna go
I pray to God to keep me afloat
Higher and higher to the sun I approach
But it melts me down from bird to man, I know

So take me where I wanna go
They'll burn alone, they'll burn alone
This life weighs heavy on my bones
They'll burn alone, they'll all burn alone

I just really wanna see the ashes
Flames from the sky, call it clashing
And it burns in my soul, yes it's out of control
Can't control my passion
When you're lost in the masses
And you're the reason why they're laughing
Well I'm the reason why this happened
Guess now who's laughing

I wanna burn, burn this motherfucker down
To the ground right now
Wanna see it burn down

So take me where I wanna go
They'll burn alone, they'll burn alone
This life weighs heavy on my bones
They'll burn alone, they'll all burn alone
Track Name: Him
I'm crawling again
Out of my hole in the world
No longer sinking
Like a stone on my legs
I hear voices
That call me out
In my sleep
I get no rest
Why should I
Give it all
For it to all fall
Back on me?
Why should I
Give my life
For it to all fall apart?

Waiting
Patiently for some god above
To save my soul
Would be like
Wading
In the water, arms open wide
And asking
"Why don't the fish appear?"

Cause he don't know my heart
And he don't know where to begin
And couldn't help someone like me
My soul's too lost
I know we've grown apart
And I know thoughts are coming again
And I don't need any help at all
My soul's too lost, soul's too lost

Why should I
Give it all
For it to all fall
Back on me?
Why should I
Give my life
For it to all fall apart?

Saying
Take my hand, then take my blood
For feeding
Would be like
Saying
Live in my house, sleep in my bed
Then turning around
Throw away the key

Cause you don't know my heart
And you don't know where to begin
And you couldn't help someone like me
My soul's too lost
I know we've grown apart
And I know thoughts are coming again
And I don't need any help at all
My soul's too lost, soul's too lost

Why should I
Give it all
For it to all fall
Back on me?
Why should I
Give my life
For it to all fall apart?

(Lost, start)
Lost in the front of a war I didn't start
(Caught, heart)
Caught in a game and I wage my heart
(Stars, cards)
Can't change my stars, just play my cards
(Flaws, art)
Place my flaws in a place full of art
Where the page gets drawn
Of confusing thoughts
Lost in the art
Write my wrongs in a room
Full of songs in a room
Full of sin which I call my friends
Roads meets the end got me hoping again
For this hopeless win
Shall the sword be mightier than this hopeless pen?
Where do I begin?
With a broken boy
Broken mind
Broken spine
Broken thoughts
Broken heart
This is my pitfall
What I write for
What I die for
But why should I die for?
Can't tell you what the fight's for
I can't tell you what the fight's for

I am a new man
I am a new world
I am a new God
Your soul's too lost, your soul's too lost
