Track Name: Brand New Me
So everybody in the whole wide world.
Turn up your speakers till your eardrums burst.
Don't skip the track just listen verse by verse,
but for better or worse.
This is not a defeat,
This is a BRAND NEW ME!

So listen up and get your head on straight.
My last impression was something that you hate.
Yeah I know that I faked it.
Go ahead rearrange this for yourself.

I've been taught to never change,
but change is something that will always be.
I sit here wondering as I wake up everyday.
I convince myself that I am not afraid.

Don't give up, let's grow up, it's time we live it up now.
Don't give up, let's grow up, IT'S TIME WE LIVE IT UP!

So listen up and pick up the pace.
This inspiration is rushing through my veins.
Yeah my heartbeat is racing.
So let's come and deface what we have left.

I've been taught to never change,
but change is something that will always be.
I sit here wondering as I wake up everyday.
I convince myself that I am not afraid.
Fear something I thought I'd never change.

When it's done you'll see I've turned it around,
I gave up, I got lost, I've done all of this wrong.
This is someone that I could never be.
Follow your Heart.

DROP!

I'll find me at the end.
Track Name: No Suits, Just Shants (ft. James Teyler of Worthwhile)
I continue to find myself trapped inside
of your demands:
incorporate, wear bullshit ties,
sign away your life.
Have you failed to recognize?
Success isn't measured in the weight of our golds and dimes
Or did you forget that your word is our biggest prize?
RESPECT!

Smite me I'm a fraud.
This time there's no more limits.
I can go on without your grace.
Smite me I'm a fraud
I can't continue living
at least in your ways, your terms.
STAND DOWN AND RESPECT!
Smite me and your cause
Abolish all the limits.
I can go on without disgrace
Fly south and swift
before perdition finds us.
Find the place where you belong.

I've been born into collective minds
with numbers and politics.
I'm grateful I'm nothing close to this.
So raise those fists and count your shots,
Cause each punch you throw could be the last one you got.
So go on and live your life,
this is the last time
that I'll live inside the lines.

YOUR WEIGHT IN GOLD FOOLED THE WORLDS DECREE,
BUT IT TAKES MORE TO DECEIVE... ME!!

Smite me I'm a fraud.
This time there's no more limits.
I can go on without your grace.
Smite me I'm a fraud
I can't continue living
at least in your ways, your terms.
STAND DOWN AND RESPECT!
Smite me and your cause
Abolish all the limits.
I can go on without disgrace
Fly south and swift
before perdition finds us.
Find the place where you belong.
Track Name: We Fight!
The day I turned eighteen, I found myself
taking one last look at this dead end street.
Where my band would play and the cops would fucking rage.
So I swore to all my friends, "we'd make it out."
Yeah I know we are were careless, and I know we were young.
So we packed up all our shit, and we were gone.
We'll cross over fifty lines for them to see us and the songs we write.
But it starts here, IN OUR GARAGE!

And if you asked I would say,
I'd do it again.
There's nothing more than a trip
round the world with your best friends.
We can't ever forget them.
Whoa.

Fuck what the kids will say.
They have no idea.
What this means to me.
I've given everything.
So in the end there's only me to lose.
[But] let's pretend you'll be there to pull me through.
Soldier on and remember that we fight
the fights we believe in.
So fight till they see this through.

Quit holdin onto ghosts.
Cause you'll just let me go.
Let me go.

And if you asked I would say,
I'd do it again.
There's nothing more than a trip
round the world with your best friends.
We can't ever forget them.
Whoa.
And when the world's fast asleep
I part at the seams.
I'll just pretend that you're right here with me.
You can never forget this.

(Can you hear my cries?
A thousand voices screamin songs we used to write.)
Track Name: Dream. Sleep. Repeat.
You can't ignore,
The words and the phrases that we have wrote.
You signed and promised we're in this together
to fail is to never try.
In spite of everything,
In spite of all the shit you've said.
I know what you're thinking
this must be the reason that I've been afraid to fly
just close my eyes and leap.
This is a chance to become
free again.
We all know that our fears irrelevant.
Just drop everything and risk it all.

Will I be remembered when I'm gone?
I want to be something no one is, can, will, or ever was.
If I want this right I'm doing this alone.
I wanna reach farther than the stars,
(Up where the stars)
I wanna see the sky where the clouds look like the ground
(Look like like the ground)
and the northern lights break bounds where eyes can't see.

I've seen a storm
that's blacker through eyes of a telescope.
I've seen a winter more cold than December
Where bones turn to brittle glass.
In spite of everything,
In spite of all the shit ahead.
I know what you're thinking
that this must be the reason that I've been afraid to fly
just close my eyes and leap.
This is a chance to become
free.

Will I be remembered when I'm gone?
I want to be something no one is, can, will, or ever was.
If I want this right I'm doing this alone.
I wanna reach farther than the stars,
(Up where the stars)
I wanna see the sky where the clouds look like the ground
(Look like like the ground)
and the northern lights break bounds where eyes can't see.
Track Name: Headed for Splitsville
Time and time again.
You place blame with every finger,
but you still can't comprehend.
It's my life then I'll stride the I wanna.
Rip these chains away from me.

Cause I'm the one to scar,
and I'm the to break apart.
and now the world will know how weak you really are.
I'll tell you I can't say I won't get used to this
I'm sure you won't be missed.

Any hope that's left, you're too late
we're just minutes from the end.
cause you're the one that's been wrong from the start,
but I'll take this scars.

Every time you say,
You'd never break a promise,
but the lies were all you kept.
Stop staring the mirror down.
Just say what you would say
TO MY FACE!

And there you go again.
every time you always talking your shit
you think you're worth an honest example.
This is me with my hands round your neck.
Don't you dare speak another deception,
to my face.

Oh how I wish you knew,
The things I'd do to forget you.
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE!
I dare you to prove me wrong.

Your words they could never define me.
You can't wash the blood stained off of your teeth,
FROM THE LIES, ALL THE BULLSHIT YOU TOLD ME!
How did I ever believe you... fuck!

Any hope that's left, you're too late
we're just minutes from the end.
cause you're the one that's been wrong from the start,
but I'll take this scars.
Track Name: Rayman Always Wears Raybans
Shut it, lock it, forget and look the other way.
My head is buried under clouds and playing pretend.
And we'll lie and we will spurn
every chance to take a look.

Breathe,
Take that next shot and breathe.
fall off the edge of your seat.
Maybe closure's all you need.

I pray that this could be the next year.
Rainclouds been trailing me for weeks on end.
I'm the worst I've ever been.
Could things change if I believed you?
Then I so was wrong, maybe you exist.
Can you burn this year in hell and save me?

Oh, God can you blame me for my doubt.
In your life and existence.

Shut it, lock it, forget, and spare yourself shame.
I'm giving up at any chance on letting you in.
Closed the blinds and my doors shut.
And you'll never see my face again.
I might be dead and gone,
and you could bury the year
but we'll still SING THIS SONG!

I pray that this could be the next year.
Rainclouds been trailing me for weeks on end.
I'm the worst I've ever been.
Could things change if I believed you?
Then I so was wrong, maybe you exist.
Can you burn this year in hell and save me?

So count from ten and watch the lights get lowered.
I'll crack a smile and forget each every moment
that was so hard.
We'll make mistakes as we keep growing older
Three hundred new days to redeem all that we've done wrong.
Oh I thank God.

I swear I'll be much better this time.
Maybe this time.
I swear I'll be much better this time.
