Track Name: Avert The Apathy
I can't see the sun
through the overcast
all the fog seems to suggest
I occupy my time
by its design
I'm sick of the routine of it

Well don't you write me off, I don't think I've fallen past the tipping point,
where the apathetic, epidemic, suffocates my mind
There's marks where I've been clawing, to get over these walls
my fingers filed to the bone, but I'm not one for falling, I'm not one for staying down

An empty soul defeated
a curse that screams my name
If I can't stop all the bleeding
a war inside me starts again

Well don't you write me off, I don't think I've fallen past the tipping point,
where the apathetic, epidemic, suffocates my mind
There's marks where I've been clawing, to get over these walls
my fingers filed to the bone, but I'm not one for falling, I'm not one for staying down

I've tried to hide all my fears
by shutting everyone out
despised regrets are my weakness
so silently I shout

Well don't you write me off, I don't think I've fallen past the tipping point,
where the apathetic, epidemic, suffocates my mind
There's marks where I've been clawing, to get over these walls
my fingers filed to the bone, but I'm not one for falling, I'm not one for staying down
Track Name: Get Off My Hoverboard!(feat. JoeK)
I could cast away my feelings
while you look for something better
and if we're both living lies, and toeing lines
why does it feel like I'm the only one?

I've tried to let my guard down and I've stepped back enough to
give you what you want, but you're running away and I'm not going to stop you
I hope you find what you've been looking for but missed staring you eye to
I never needed you, I'm moving forward with or without you

I'm breathing easier now,
that I've got you off my chest
I'm laying this to rest

I've tried to let my guard down and I've stepped back enough to
give you what you want, but you're running away and I'm not going to stop you
I hope you find what you've been looking for but missed staring you eye to
I never needed you, I'm moving forward with or without you

We both walked that fine line that lies between
You wanna leave but you disguise the lies and reasons
and I would rather die a thousand deaths
before I let you hold me back

This time I've had enough plans erupt and I'm off and leaving
I stopped believing that you could hold the blueprints I needed
And you can follow me if you decide that you're coming with
But I'm going to grab this dream on the line and run with it

I've tried to let my guard down and I've stepped back enough to
give you what you want, but you're running away and I'm not going to stop you
I hope you find what you've been looking for but missed staring you eye to
I never needed you, I'm moving forward with or without you
I've tried to let my guard down and I've stepped back enough to
give you what you want, I'm moving forward with or without you
Track Name: Buried In The Static
I've built this house with my bare hands
and paved the ground on which you stand
to have it taken all away in the end
can I still call myself a man?

When I'm gone will they know that I was here?
Will my songs be sang, or just disappear?
I can scream all day on the airwaves
but if no one's tuned in
I'll be buried in the static

I've filled these pages with the lines
that I've been saying my whole life
to have them ripped out from the spine in the end
but they're still burned into my mind

When I'm gone will they know that I was here?
Will my songs be sang, or just disappear?
I can scream all day on the airwaves
but if no one's tuned in
I'll be buried in the static

I am dead
I am dead to you

When I'm gone will they know that I was here?
Will my songs be sang, or just disappear?
I can scream all day on the airwaves
but if no one's tuned in
I'll be buried in the static
Track Name: If You're Not Living You're Dying
You think you know what's real
I hear it all the time
You've given me your peace
I don't need your peace of mind
If only for a moment I could show you how it feels
to sacrifice a way of life, and never really heal

And I can't find a reason why
I should take your word over mine

And I hear them say its not worth the pain
I just can't deny all these years of my life
And they're in my ear they know all my fears
But they'l never survive promises I've denied for too long

It must be so easy from your point of view
Anyone can do this I know that its not true
I put in all my time when I had no time to spare
I may have burned some bridges that'll never be repaired

And I can't find a reason why
I should take your word over mine

And I hear them say its not worth the pain
I just can't deny all these years of my life
And they're in my ear they know all my fears
But they'l never survive promises I've denied for too long

And I hear them say its not worth the pain
I just can't deny all these years of my life
And they're in my ear they know all my fears
But they'l never survive promises I've denied for too long
But they'l never survive promises I've denied for too long
They'll never survive
Track Name: Sever The Ties
You led us on we let you in
We thought we had you figured out
then played us like a game to win
I never saw this side of you
you think you've got it all planned now
chew us up and spit us out
But you poisoned your only play
I hope you like the taste

Show me your cards I don't trust what you say
You want in if I win but you don't want to play
Let me tell you its such a disgrace
you want half my worth with no stake in the game
I'll tell you its a slap in the face
and I won't sing for you, I'm cutting the ties

And maybe we'll regret this
And maybe we're enough
All this practice made perfect
so tell me its worth it
Its in our blood to never give up
We won't back down there's more to us than your pockets
And the poison will find its place
but we'll get away

Show me your cards I don't trust what you say
You want in if I win but you don't want to play
Let me tell you its such a disgrace
you want half my worth with no stake in the game
I'll tell you its a slap in the face
and I won't sing for you, I'm cutting the ties

We won't back down, there's more to us than your pockets
we won't lie down

Show me your cards I don't trust what you say
You want in if I win but you don't want to play
Let me tell you its such a disgrace
you want half my worth with no stake in the game
I'll tell you its a slap in the face
and I won't sing for you, I'm cutting the ties
Let me tell you its such a disgrace
you want half my worth with no stake in the game
I'll tell you its a slap in the face
and I won't sing for you, I'm cutting the ties
Track Name: Come Together (feat. Jessie Farnsworth)
Here come old flat top
he come grooving up slowly
he got joo joo eyeball
he one holy roller
he's got hair down to his knee
he's got to be a joker he just do what he please

He wear no shoe shine
he got toe jam football
he got monkey fingers
he shoot coca-cola
he say I know you, you know me
One thing I can tell you is you've got to be free

Come together right now
Come together right now
Come together right now over me

He bad production
He got walrus gumboot
He got ono sideboard
he one spinal cracker
he got feet down below his knee
hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease

Come together right now
Come together right now
Come together right now over me

Come together right now
Come together right now
Come together right now over me
Track Name: Cold Wisconsin Nights (feat. Melissa Menago & Ari Herstand)
I feel silenced by the chanting of the crowd
You've been dancing on while I'm down here by myself
Ive been holding out in the shadows of my doubts
Until there's lightning in a bottle and I'm free to pour it out

I don't know what's wrong so quit asking
I don't know how I feel or what I'm thinking
If I can't find my way around me what makes you think you can?
But I never said to stop looking

I stare up at the sky on these cold Wisconsin nights
and yell up to the stars demand they listen
I can't fall asleep tonight because I'm always asking why
and nothing seems to change so I'll keep trying

In this game of chess in my mind
I took your queen but my king is on the line
I keep risking all this time
but as the years go by
I keep climbing but the horizon never moves
you can't lie to me you don't know me like I do

I stare up at the sky on these cold Wisconsin nights
and yell up to the stars demand they listen
I can't fall asleep tonight because I'm always asking why
and nothing seems to change so I'll keep trying

I've been lost to the sound that I've turned up too loud
all the while I've been pushing away
so don't let me forget I already regret
all this time spent wasted on my own

I feel silenced by the chanting of the crowd

I stare up at the sky on these cold Wisconsin nights
and yell up to the stars demand they listen
I can't fall asleep tonight because I'm always asking why
and nothing seems to change so I'll keep trying

I feel silenced by the chanting of the crowd
Track Name: Nice Guys Finish Last (But Its Worth The Wait)
These shadows on our eyes
they give the story lines
that read like a tired rhyme never ending

These scars will stay with me
no art in the poems we sing
a lone voice no harmony for now

Well hey, its finally starting to go the way
we've been planning for when I promised you
I'd say we can have it all if we never stray away
from all the days spent looking up with our heads down

The stage is finally set
its up to us so lets
dive in with no safety net below

we've climbed for way too long
sang all these tired songs
but I feel the winds are changing now

Well hey, its finally starting to go the way
we've been planning for when I promised you
I'd say we can have it all if we never stray away
from all the days spent looking up with our heads down

Well hey, its finally starting to go the way
we've been planning for when I promised you
I'd say we can have it all if we never stray away
from all the days spent looking up with our heads down
Track Name: EHONDA
Your blind fold's not on tight
the wind could blow it down
But you're convinced that its on tight
so you'll never make a sound

We could fill the wholes we've dug
with self doubt or hidden truth
or fill them with the virtues that
we all strive to hold on to

I'm begging you to scream
'till your throat hurts
If we stand as one our voices clear
and scream at the top of our lungs
we could stand as one and be the story of the year

I'm begging you to scream
'till your throat hurts
If we stand as one our voices clear
and scream at the top of our lungs
we could stand as one and be the story of the year

So scream at the top of your lungs
Track Name: Voiceless (feat. The Zamora)
We're not barking for your scraps anymore
so keep it all we won't back down
its a buyers world out there but we can't sell much lower
our self respect's worth more than that
You can't look us in the eyes
because its easier to lie
when you're wearing a disguise

The scales, they shift more in your favor
and you might think there's not much we can do
you have all the capital, but we've got the numbers
now we have a voice, and we won't run away
we won't run away, we won't run away
yeah we've got the numbers
now we have a voice, and we won't run away

We've worked to build this up, we've all paid our dues
did you think it was all for you?
Our fear keeps us divided but they'll always win until we're united
I won't pay to board a sinking ship
controlled remotely from a safe distance
while you place your bets on if we live or die

The scales, they shift more in your favor
and you might think there's not much we can do
you have all the capital, but we've got the numbers
now we have a voice, and we won't run away
we won't run away, we won't run away
yeah we've got the numbers
now we have a voice, and we won't run away

Hey, this is a wake-up
Hey, this is a wakeiup call
Hey, this is a wake-up
Hey, this is a wake-up call

And we won't run away
we won't run away, we won't run away
yeah we've got the numbers
now we have a voice, and we won't run away
