Fuck the past I'm tired of looking back and dwelling Cut me some slack Cause it's my name and it's all the same And I love the way You comb your hair out of your face And I won't be depressed Starring in green eyes all day long And I wake up drunk And try my best to go to work And I got a job In the city close to my baby She loves it when We're sleeping in, in the same bed for the first time in weeks I'm waking up with someone next to me Next to me, next to me Oh yeah So you know the way I smile when you enter a room Is the same as when I say that I love you For as long as I can Till my muscles cease to move Lest I forget my name and yours too

Way It Goes 03:04
Aren't you worried about what comes next Cause frankly It's easy to write off requests You're different, you're special cause you know what's best You don't wish to be judged, but you'll judge the rest It's the way it goes So what Bah–bah oo–oo–oo–oo You're not Bah–Bah Oo–oo–oo–oo What your parents Bah–Bah Oo–oo–oo–oo Hope that you would be Bah–Bah Oo–oo–oo–oo Smoking and tripping Bah–Bah Oo–oo–oo–oo Is all that you do Bah–Bah Oo–oo–oo–oo Where's all that tripping Bah–Bah Oo–oo–oo–oo Gotten you Bah–Bah Oo–oo–oo–oo You live your whole life all in your head What can you say you've done before you're dead You were a young boy who dreamed of success Your dreams will never be, unless you progress It's the way it goes So what Bah–bah oo–oo–oo–oo You're not Bah–Bah Oo–oo–oo–oo What your parents Bah–Bah Oo–oo–oo–oo Hope that you would be Bah–Bah Oo–oo–oo–oo Smoking and tripping Bah–Bah Oo–oo–oo–oo Is all that you do Bah–Bah Oo–oo–oo–oo Where's all that tripping Bah–Bah Oo–oo–oo–oo Gotten you Bah–Bah Oo–oo–oo–oo

The natural course of ah, events Responds with equivalent consequence Or at least that's what you'd hope would happen It's naive to expect but then again The patterns are striking, you can't help but see the signs The universal structures were so well designed By whom though, no one knows but some may claim It's part of infinity, all is one and one the same Why do I feel alone? Separated from the oversoul Making it up as we go Because we're dying to know Collective consciousness Is it real or fantasy at best At best, at best At best, at best At best At best, at best At best At best At best The eternal question has always been why Are we here, why are we even alive To see, to see, to see, with our eyes As much as we can before we die Or at the very least strive to be Someone

Wide Awake 04:38
I wasn't expecting to see you again Not since you left your old earthly frame It's oh so, so strange to hear your voice again Even if it's burrowed deep inside my brain We're sitting in the kitchen surrounded by the whole family And I'm wondering, why you've come to see me I'm over, overrun with feelings
5.
Out in the rain again Bulldozers are closing in Cause the highway's expanding Best be on my way with my belongings You're not wanted here, no you're not Wanted here, no you're not Wanted here, no you're not Wanted here I feel sunrise Welcome warmth on my face What's next will tie My life force into place Beggars and choosers, choosers of my fate Winners and losers, all end up in the same place Out in the streets again Feel the heat closing in Best stand your ground remembering The lives they took Baltimore's burning down How many more in the ground Ferguson's burning down How many more Won't feel sunrise Welcome warmth on their face What's next will tie Our country's unsure fate To human decency, or ignorance and hate You best not confuse me, America's conscience is at stake

It's Just Us 07:04
Don't you know, don't you know Don't you know, don't you know It's happening, happening Happening, happening Without you, without you Without you, without you It's my life, no one else It's my life, no one else Don't you know, don't you know Don't you know, don't you know I'm moving on, move right in Moving on, move right in Moving on, move right in Moving on, move right in Moving on, move right in Moving on, move right in What are you doing There's work to be done We've all got needs Not the only one We've all got something Going on It's all or nothing From now on It's all or nothing From now on Oh I confess I never pictured this I can't speak for you, but I'll always be obsessed With the vibrations from, my hands and my throat It's what I'm meant to do, not something else You're either with us now, or we'll move on with Out on the road, While you're back at home You know it's just us, on our own I've got my guitar, David's on his throne Cause I wanna be, out every night Cause I wanna be, out every night I wanna be out every single night Cause I wanna be out every single night Cause I wanna be a single point of light Hurtling forward all through the night At night, at night So you covered it, so you smothered it, so you covered it so you hide it away So you covered it, so you smothered it, so you covered it so you hide it today Existential crisis coming, head and heart voices which will lead the way It's your life and your life only, don't let us get in your way But as for me I will never, I will never, I will never, I will never change I will never, I will never, I will never, I will never change I will never, I will never, I will never change

My goals reflect my soul My motives are always my own I don't wanna harm and I don't want to hate I aim to alarm with the things I create Place my hands on the table My work is never done Show my scars in the stars Labor of love Connect the marks the paths of my fables It's still being told In pictures and pen marks and panels The best has yet to come When I illustrate my story I saw my next creation in a dream Early men standing on a mountain An impossible peak, vantage point serine Scope out their prey They know the price his tusks will pay A body a thousand mouths could feed Lasting a hundred days, to sustain the whole tribe They pray to their wooden gods Singing let's make it through the winter A sacred sacrifice Singing let's make it through the winter Pray to their wooden gods Singing let's make it through the winter Sacred sacrifice Singing let's make it through the winter To pass on their ancient genes
8.
When I Cave 04:36
Change My repertoire 'Cause baby I'm meant for more My timing Is not always the best To lay These things to rest Sowing the seed of change in me Knowing the cost of maturity 'Cause I've been bad And I've been good Doing most of the things That I know I should But what about the rest Severed ties, unfinished business Growing up is hard but failure feels like shit You best be better boy, or you're gonna Pay for it Change My repertoire 'Cause baby I'm meant for more My timing Is not always the best To lay These things to rest When I proceed to lose some speed I feel the claws digging into me I'm overwhelmed, that's when I cave Either comatose or I'm full of rage Which one will it be by the end of the day Well, hopefully neither but I really can't say I'll fool you once and then they'll Take me away I swear this never happens I'm lying through my teeth I swear this never happens I'm lying through my teeth I swear this never happens I'm lying through my teeth I swear this never happens I'm lying through my teeth

21 Days 05:07
We got all this space To move around But the neighbors still say We should keep it down My unraveling sanity Reality unwound When the last of my family Is six feet in the ground Watch me lose control Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh oh Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh oh Ooh Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh oh Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh oh Ooh Oo–oo Three weeks is all that it took To see how hard my world could be shook No use in saving the memories Cause one day when I'm old they'll leave me Every last thing Must come to an end So take some solace In this my friend When we die Simply don't know If everything ceases To think and grow We've got no control Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh oh Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh oh Ooh Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh oh Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh oh Ooh Oo–oo Walk through my parents' door Like I've done a thousand times or more Feeling emotionally drained And that's when I see the frames Tears well up in my eyes As I choke back my goodbyes My world won't feel the same Without the ones who share my name
