Track Name: Take a Stand
It seems like everyone you go
A buildings try to sell your soul
It seems no matter where you are
A sales pitch ain't that far

The world has become one big magazine
But the filler between the pages are getting bigger than the things we oughta read

[CHORUS]
We gotta take a stand; speak up
Or they'll tell you what you want
We gotta take a stand - don't give up
Till the damage gets undone
The world is changing
But not the way it should

There's a whole world to see
Beyond your twitter feed
It's like we're living in a dead man's town
It's hard to see while looking down

The world now revolves round distraction machines
The place that we're living is better
than anything you can see hiding behind a fucking screen

[CHORUS]

It doesn't matter where you live
Or where you go
As long as you're connected you're never alone

So take a stand for what's right
Because as long as they feed you and do what they want to you
you won't be living the life that you wanted to
Get up and leave all this bullshit behind because none of it's helping you reach out and get out alive

[CHORUS]
Track Name: Soon We'll Be Together
Time zones apart, but you're still here in my heart so I don't mind
Even though you're away, I see you everyday, my heart's not blind

Oh and I know that you're gone
But not for that long
Until then I'll keep watching the door

[Chorus]
Soon we'll be together
I'll wait a week or two
Seems it's been forever
But we'll be together soon


The day that you left you took away the biggest part of me
As soon as you're back I'll have everything I'll ever need

Ohh and I know you're still gone
But not for that long
Until then I'll be watching that door

[Chorus]

You've been gone for too long
You've been gone and I need you by my side
Home is where you belong
Home is here in my arms
And still here I'm waiting

[Chorus X2]
Track Name: Lost in Translation
Reassurance as you say my name
The shades of red we're seeing are not the same
I'm tightly tucked into a sheet of lies
Your mirror image all I recognize

Baby tell me where'd you go
I can't stay here all alone
Thought that I could trust your eyes
But I discovered your disguise

[Chorus]
Baby cause you got something that I didn't see
Baby cause you are nothing like I thought you'd be
Baby now you oughta know I'm catching on to every word and I'm finding
I'm lost in translation

Now I don't know what to believe
With cards you never played still up your sleeve
I don't know what words to follow anymore
The path you're taking's not the same as the one before

Baby tell me where'd you go
I can't stay here all alone
Thought that I could trust your eyes
But I discovered your disguise

[Chorus]

The glass you spilled was filled up to the brim with chardonnay
I don't recall a celebration
On the phone you say I know you but I don't know your name
Guess I'm lost in translation

[Chorus]
Track Name: Can't Believe You Love Me
I can't believe a girl like her is after me
It's so hard to see why she's going crazy over me
I don't have anything going on
She could have any guy she wants

[Chorus]
I am nothing special
And shes one of a kind
I don't know what it is she sees
But she chose me
I can't believe she loves me

I don't know why she laughs at everything joke I make
I don't get why she comes to me when things don't go her way
I have way too many flaws to say
And she is perfect in every single way

[Chorus]

[Bridge]

[Chorus] X2
Track Name: Make This Right
Is there something i can say to you
To make everything okay with you
If I say I'm not the same, would you
Finally hear what I say

[Chorus]
We can make this right, If we try
You and I, put our differences aside,
it's alright, stop your crying
we can make this right, if we try
You and I, put our differences aside
We just might make this right

I said maybe you should go, this time
With my hand pressed on the door, I lied
You say no more second chances, that's fine
As long as we can just get past this, we'll survive

[Chorus]

You say we've been here before
You don't want this anymore
No matter how much we fight
We can make this right

[Chorus] X2
Track Name: Figure it Out (Burnin' Up)
I promise you this flame is still growing
Don't let the smoke block your view
You say that I'm treating you badly
I swear I'll make it up to you

Can't cool my desire, it's a fire getting higher
Our love's still alive, it will survive, down the line
Buy you think we're going down

[Chorus]
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
I promise you we'll get out alive
We're burning up, can't cool us down
I promise you we'll figure it out

I promise Baby I still love you
You gotta give this a chance
Everything you say I will do
Cause I still wanna be your man

Can't change how I feel, this is real, I swear it's true
Realize that the size of this fire only grew
You still think it's going down

[Chorus]

[Sax Solo]

[Chorus] X3
Track Name: Home Again
Watching waves dance upon my shore
I watch them break just like they did before
I'll trace my steps to find another day
They dissipate as they wash away

[Chorus]
I've been gone for way too long, which ways home
I'm in a different place where the numbers changed on my phone
And I wonder how long it will be; I want to go home again
Cause eight is older than I'll have ever been

Watching time break my hands and face
I look around, I barely know this place
Silence hides behind a cloud of noise
No one helps 'cause no one knows my voice

[Chorus]

How did I miss that sunrise
Light years away it never reached my eyes
A thousand words is what I'll write
This cautionary tale will paint the picture right

[Chorus]
Track Name: Alright
Call me up, sit me down
Say everything's gonna be alright
Call me up, sit me down

I played and you came
You said you'd put your faith into me
You'd told me I'd fly
and handed me your ancient wings

My life in time was gonna change for the better
Surprise - instead there'd be a change in the weather

[Chorus]
Call me up, sit me down
Say everything's gonna be alright
I'll listen but won't understand
How could things get better

You came and left
We're all just here for a moment
Is it fate or theft
I guess I never really owned it

You gave your time
But you should have kept each second
If it's a crime
My destiny was the weapon

[Chorus]

Everything's gonna be alright
Track Name: Fool For You
[Chorus]
You played it cool, now I'm a fool for you
And loving you is all that I can do
You played it cool, now I'm a fool for you
And loving you is all that I can do

I'm hanging from the shortest leash
You got me doing to tricks to please you
You're behind my every step
You got your own marionette, it's true

But if anyone ever saw
What I see in you
All of them would then realize
They'd be a fool for you too

[Chorus]

I'm chasing after every pitch
I'm swinging even though I'll miss for you
I'm staring blankly at your lips
I'm hypnotized by every kiss, it's true

But if anyone ever saw
What I see in you
All of them would then realize
They'd be a fool for you too

[Chorus]
Track Name: That's What Love Is
I brag to my friends about the job you just landed
That silly voice makes you laugh but you say you can't stand it

A whole afternoon without saying a word
You pick the movie i like before the one you preferred

I know you're behind me no matter which way I go
After all these years it's clear
That's what love is

You tell me I'm clever when nobody says it
I laugh at your jokes if no one else gets it

You point out the stain that I left on my shirt
I'll pay for our dinner but you got dessert

All of these things define what we are
It's weird but clear
That's what love is
Track Name: Time Can Be Misleading
I'm walking around unfamiliar neighborhoods I used to call my home
All the faces are shaded in colors I don't know

All my friends are gone
They must have all moved on
Maybe I'm wrong this time
Cause I know time can be misleading

[Chorus]
Everything has changed
No one knows my name
Maybe it's point of view
Cause I know time can be misleading

I'm watching the time, I've never seen his arms move that fast before
And now I wish he'd stop-
This stroboscope I'm looking in through shows his face without the frame it drops

Have we moved at all
If we're the frames that fall
Maybe I'm wrong this time
Cause I know time can be misleading

[Chorus]

The more I grow, the more I see
The plain gets clearer with each degree
But could it be the more I grow
The further from reality I go

I'm walking ahead, the further up I explore
I see a sunset I know I've seen before
But this time around I seem to appreciate it more

Was I ever wrong
Was I right all along
Maybe I'm wrong this time
Cause I know time can be misleading

[Chorus]
Track Name: Run Away
You're mindlessly drifting away from home
The mask you wear will only make you more alone
Camouflage all of the poison that you drink
But It will still impair the way that you think

Run away, run away, run away, run away
But you'll never hide

The current's strong but doesn't guide the way
This rippled mirror you want is backward anyways
You're chasing empty promises of finding thrill
But no ones ever gonna fly while standing still

Run away, run away, run away, run away
But you'll never hide
Run away, run away, run away, run away
from what you feel inside

Keep running

Oh you can run but you can't hide from what you are

Run away, run away, run away, run away
But you'll never hide
Run away, run away, run away, run away
from what you feel inside

Keep running
