Track Name: Tides
Several little notes
are echoing from coast to coast
Don't think I can't see that grin
as the tide rolls in
Seascapes become my every escape
It's all I fucking know

I will live for
what we might find on the other side of the storm
Can we handle more?
I've never been more sure
Don't matter the tides will push pull
Push pull me away
Pulling you in

No, I won't let go
remember the ocean view we so loved as we grew

I will live for
what we might find on the other side of the storm
Can we handle more?
I've never been more sure
Don't matter the tides will push pull
Push pull me away

no, no, no, no, no
It seems to me
nobody lives for the day
Feel, you've got to feel
me pulling you in
Pulling you in
Like the tides
Feel, you've got to feel
me pulling you in
Pulling you in
With the tides
No, I won't let go remember the ocean view we so loved as we grew
And oh if you let go remember the tides will get me
Track Name: Move Me
Look, touch, move me
I'm not make believe
But I can promise that I'll make you see
Me more deeply
if you weren't listening
It's not my ego you're avoiding bruising

I've always had one question
Am I really destined?

Failure falls on me naturally
They can't hear me
But i'm screaming

Oh, I've torn my lungs enough
just hold on tight
even in spite
It's gonna get more rough
I need your love to destroy my doubt
I never said I had it all figured out

But I was given a choice
and I've found my voice

Failure falls on me naturally
They can't hear me
But i'm screaming
I'm sorry x3
(I'm sorry)x3
I'll make it to you someday

and we won't take demands from any man

As I tighten the shutters
I find i'm sitting here wondering
What it takes to live up to earth's standards
Move me
Try to challenge my dreams
Who are you to intrude?
Tell me what it's like to believe
We're dead right where our feet are placed

Failure falls on me naturally
They can't hear me
But i'm screaming
I'm sorry x3
(I'm sorry) x3
I'll make it to you someday
Track Name: Perfect On Paper
Where did the genuine go?
What once was real is so painfully faux
What doors were open were slammed to a close
I'd rather throw my hands between then be the favorite you chose
Today, you wake a sleeping giant
Who know how to make you shake
Your face, a waste
Can't take my place
Your back-fired desire has you
Falling from grace
A little salt for the wounds you get from hanging with
snakes

Let me into your mind
for the first time
I want you to know what it's like on the other side
Can you hear our voices chime?
(way-oh, way-oh) x2
That's the sound as your crown hits the ground

But no, it can't always be bad
For all this I have become
Some idea of a better man
If you love them let them go
I never tried to run the show
We look at life differently
You don't know what it's like to
Lead, with love
A little salt for your wounds

Let me into your mind
for the first time
I want you to know what it's like on the other side
Can you hear our voices chime?
(way-oh, way-oh) x2
That's the sound as your crown hits the ground

Before you go would you read this note
I made it just for you
It's sure to save you time trying to read my mind
This headspace isn't made for two
We painted to sky blue
Simply cause we wanted to
Before the world became all about you
It's easy to hate her it's just human nature
I bet you think the plans you conjure
look perfect on paper
That pride pit you swallow
won't make you less hollow
Look back, no one follows
I know I won't
Track Name: Pull Together ft. Alexa San Roman
Take this time
To be honest with yourself
Your future's scripture
gathers dust with the shelves
I keep telling myself to
Come clean
But when your dreams on a movie screen
The flashing lights, the flickering
proves that I've been blindly bonded to this

Here's to the ones of the golden age
When all I can do is pray to God I can carry the flame
When will it be that I can finally
Open up my body
Take me, take me
Show me the meaning

These hands have made mistakes
And I would like to think that's not the only way
To learn and grow cause I'd like to create
Rather than destroy all the things in my way
I'm making progress with all of the things I fear
We're making progress
Our path is so clear

Here's to the ones of the golden age
When all I can do is pray to God I can carry the flame
When will it be that I can finally
Open up my body
Take me, take me
Show me the meaning

If i've learned a thing
I know you only live once and not one single person's beneath me
All I want is to believe there's unity
But if we're all on the same level who will rescue me?
I've seen more faces buried in hands than I can count
We're always searching for some meaning
We're down but not out
The more that I knew you, the more I looked up to you
Now I'm finally beginning to
Pull Together

Here's to the ones of the golden age
When all I can do is pray to God I can carry the flame
When will it be that I can finally
Open up my body
Take me, take me
Show me the meaning
Track Name: Heights
I've never felt so light on my feet
Honestly, I wouldn't lie to you
But if you leave yourself behind again
I won't cry for you

(I've reached new heights)

The first try is the best try
So watch me and you'll see history
My war cry cracks the sky
The clouds open up pouring rain
Pouring rain

I made a promise to myself from the start
I would always keep the words I wrote about my family closest
This is my melody, this is my heart
The bonds that I have made are my best works of art

(We've reached new heights)

The first try is the best try
So watch me and you'll see history
My war cry cracks the sky
The clouds open up pouring rain
Pouring rain

Pray for me just a little if you please
I am a shy boy growing up and taking the stage
If you have the nerve to hold me down
This young lion will break out of his cage
on you

The first try is the best try
So watch me and you'll see history
My war cry cracks the sky
The clouds open up pouring rain
Pouring rain
