about

Digital downloads should never cost anything but should you choose to donate all proceeds will go to NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Also, we would like to make it clear that the album title does not condone drug use. I was born in '92, I feel like my generation has lived through more school/mass shootings than any generation (189 since 1992 to be exact) and my point with this album is to spread love and art. Not one song on this album talks about any type of drug, its just an album made by some people that are sick of all the hate.

Track Name: Long Road to Nowhere
Cause we all made lots of mistakes
But then we've all learned from the ones we made
And sometimes things don't run full course
And then we end up stuck back at first

I know that life can be unfair
But if you give it your best
You can take yourself anywhere

You can travel to the moon
You can aim right for the stars
If you can't take your first step
You'll never get very far

You can travel to the moon
You can aim right for the stars
If you can't take your first step
You'll never get very far

Dreams can mend reality
If you don't want it, set them free
Cause we all deserve a second chance
To take our lives and make 'em the best

I know that life can be unfair
But if you give it your best
You can take yourself anywhere

We can travel to the moon
We can aim right for the stars
If you can't take your first step
You'll never get very far

We can travel to the moon
We can aim right for the stars
If you can't take your first step
You'll never get very far
Track Name: Pimp Slapped!
Stop trying to sell yourself
As something you will never be
(Never be)
You gotta work harder than you do

Since you walked away from this
Don't you come back now
And I hope, I never, See you again
Since you walked away from this
Don't you come back now
And I hope, I never, See you again

You'll never find yourself
Another guy as good as me
One day you'll see you're such a fool

Since you walked away from this
Don't you come back now
And I hope, I never, See you again
Since you walked away from this
Don't you come back now
And I hope, I never, See you again

You'll never learn
And you're right people don't change
What a waste, all I say
What a waste, all you could be
What a waste, all we see
What a waste you are

Stop trying to sell yourself
As something you will never be
(Never be)
You gotta work harder than you do

Since you walked away from this
Don't you come back now
And I hope, I never, See you again
Since you walked away from this
Don't you come back now
And I hope, I never, See you again
Track Name: Lovespell
I hold you close
Unsure of what will be
So I fight to keep my pose
I'd like to be your need
And I fall apart
You don't understand me
And I try to tell myself it's so wrong
But this is what I see

I could never forget you
Not as long as I live
And I will always love you
You are my best friend
And I know it is always
Darkest before the dawn
But we've gotten through so many nights
And this ones almost done

I wait, on you
To make a move
I miss your voice
When I'm all alone
Lately, I hate
The way I feel
So spare me from this
Unhappy ending

I could never forget you
Not as long as I live
And I will always love you
You are my best friend
And I know it is always
Darkest before the dawn
But we've gotten through so many nights
And this ones almost done

I hope you know
That I love you so
And I've so long
This I hope you know
Hope you know

I could never forget you
Not as long as I live
And I will always love you
You are my best friend
And I know it is always
Darkest before the dawn
But we've gotten through so many nights
And this ones almost done
Track Name: Wait for Me Wendy
I could stop time
If you allow me to
You say that you need me
But I know you don't

Don't say that you need me
Why won't you just stay right here?
Don't leave if you need me
There's no need to pass the years
Don't say that you need me
Why won't you just stay right here?
Don't leave if you need me
There's no need to pass the years

Light the fuse for which you've earned
My hearts a bomb you've let it burn
And you've let me burn

Don't say that you need me
Why won't you just stay right here?
Don't leave if you need me
There's no need to pass the years
And if you really care
And you really believe
We could be together
Forever

Catch her if I can
Hold her in my hand
Fly away we can
Catch her I can't

Don't say that you need me
Why won't you just stay right here?
Don't leave if you need me
There's no need to pass the years
And if you really care
And you really believe
We could be together
Forever
Track Name: Art of Magnetism
Step back and clear your head tonight
Things are gonna be alright
You might be scared and that's just fine
You can still call eachother mine
Open your eyes and see what you've got

Don't you give up on him
Good things don't come so easily
Don't you give up on this
Don't you give up on her
Good things don't come so easily
Don't you give up on this

I know you're having a hard day
But things are gonna be okay
Open your eyes and see what you've got

You're both more lucky than you think
Do you want to trade places?
Open you're eyes and see what you've got

Don't you give up on him
Good things don't come so easily
Don't you give up on this
Don't you give up on her
Good things don't come so easily
Don't you give up on this

Don't you give up on him
Don't you give up on this
Don't you give up on her
Don't you give up on this
Track Name: Devil's Advocate
Close your eyes your life will soon be gone
(Never see past my disguise)
These muffled cries you aren't the only one
(Even when our hearts collide)

Your eyes are filled with freight
Blood saturates the ground tonight
Lay down your life tonight
I control all you

It's cold tonight I'm gonna get my gun
(I will wait til the shadows part)
It's no suprise I'm killing everyone
(To reveal my bleeding heart)

Your eyes are filled with freight
Blood saturates the ground tonight
Lay down your life tonight
I control all you

Your eyes are filled with freight
Blood saturates the ground tonight
Lay down your life tonight
I control all you
Track Name: Scarred Heart
There was, was a time
When you were only mine
And I wish we could all go back
And change the past
And maybe I cared too much
And maybe I care enough
Will you stay with me?

I'm such a fool for you

And I hope you don't forget
And I hope that you regret
And I know the smile that you present
Was never real
And you might be just a fake
And I might be just a fool
What did you feel for me?

I'm such a fool for you

I know that I've wanted this
I know that I needed this
I know I'm just a fuckin' mess
(Such a fuckin' mess)
And I know that I needed you
I know that I've wanted you
But you are just a fuckin' mess

I'm such a fool for you

So here we are
And I wanna believe you
But I don't think we can be again
And I can't explain this
But I've always wanted this
And I don't understand
Why I fall for you

I'm such a fool for you
And I know that you'll never see me
You'll never need me
But I'll wait forever
I'm such a fool for you
Track Name: The Last Place
I tried to walk to the end
To the last place
To the further away
To the end of my days

And they said that there'd be no turning back
Never listened to the washed up folk anyway
They've only been to differen't places
Where the rush is always strong enough
But that's not for you and I

Do you feel safety yet?
Or are you empty enough yet?
Oh no, oh no

And I tried to build it up
An entire empire for you
To rest your head on
But my shoulders hurt
I'm so tired
But I got lost instead
I'm so tired
But I got lost

And they said that there'd be no turning back
Never listened to the washed up folk anyway
They've only been to differen't places
Where the rush is always strong enough
But that's not for you and I

Do you feel safety yet?
Or are you empty enough yet?
Oh no, oh no
Track Name: Subterfuge
I'll never see you again
The way I looked at you that night
I'll never have all of the hope
That once filled my eyes
(It falls apart)
Did you even really care?
(It falls apart)
But I'll always be there

And I was there for you
Just step on me as you always do
And I've given up on you
But I'll always be there for you

All of these years, when no one was around
I was at your side
Time after time for you
I set aside my pride
(It falls apart)
Did you even really care?
(It falls apart)
But I'll always be there

And I was there for you
Just step on me as you always do
And I've given up on you
But I'll always be there for you

Making bad decisions
It all comes out of fear
Making bad decisions
I say
It cuts like a knife
Ruin your life

And I was there for you
Just step on me as you always do
And I've given up on you
But I'll always be there for you

And I was there for you
Just step on me as you always do
And I've given up on you
But I'll always be there for you
Track Name: Nevermore
Time to let go of the past
You and him could never last
You'll never know

Giving up it hurts the most
And I think of you when I see the Coast
I swim offshore

Hold on tight
Everything will be alright
ANd though you've made mistakes
Tonight

I hope you don't give up so fast
This very night could be your last
Just take things slow

Don't give up on this
I hope I see you again
Don't give up on this
Don't give up on this

Hold on tight
Everything will be alright
ANd though you've made mistakes
Tonight

Fair weathered friend what can I say
I miss the past and the better days
I dream of you

Don't give up on this
I hope I see you again
Don't give up on this
Don't give up on this

I climb the roof to watch the dawn
I've left that life but the hope lives on
I let you go

Hold on tight
Everything will be alright
ANd though you've made mistakes
Tonight

Hold on tight
Everything will be alright
ANd though you've made mistakes
Tonight

Hold on tight
Everything will be alright
ANd though you've made mistakes
Tonight

Hold on tight
Everything will be alright
ANd though you've made mistakes
Tonight
