They’ve been sounding the alarms When I should be putting fires out Just want to stay comfortable While I sleep unsafe and sound And They all tried to warn me But they didn’t say enough Now the building is collapsing While I should be waking up And I know it’s not as scary with my eyes closed And I know I’ll be gone before anyone knows. There’s no aftershock Because it feels like a constant earthquake/ Make it stop, Because I just need to stand up straight I can not live with my whole world crumbling around me/ Just let me get my wits about me/ But At least I’m warm I really should’ve been warned if I were to trap myself inside that I would be burned alive And I would choke Each breath is filled with smoke every time I try out my voice It doesn’t make a noise If I wasn’t so scared than I’d know how to stop this But it doesn’t seem real if I’m unconscious Even though my hands are scorched I’ll keep on carrying this torch/ Is it really spring again/ The time, it melts away/ The fires keep burning/ Could it last another day?/ I Could have been rescued But I chose to stay in here Don’t think I’m waking up/ I’m sick of feeling/ Is it really spring again/ The time, it melts away/ The fires keep burning/ Could it last another day?/ I Could have been rescued But I chose to stay in here Don’t think I’m waking up/ I’m sick of feeling scared/ I’m so sick of feeling scared/

Fashion Statement (Verse 1 Tell me what are you going for? Over the top or less is more? You could have chosen something better than this But I respect that risk They say that clothes make the man, I wonder what kind of man I am/ Someone losing they’re sanity/ Dress up the truth like the people won’t understand/ So concerned about vanity/ (Chorus) I know nothing of fashion. I can barely see/ But our colors are clashing. Doesnt look good to me/ Keep telling lies right before my eyes/ Don’t look good for me/ Just try honesty (Verse 2) Tell me what are you trying to say/ I need to look a certain way? What are my options here I want you to watch but I don’t care about the optics The truth can be so ugly (Bridge) Why don’t you try to/ To look your best while the spotlight is on you/ I think the audience is gonna see right through/ The face your putting on. They know that it’s not true/ So curtains up let’s start the show. and pray that they will never know/ (Alt chorus) The truth can be ugly, but the colors are true And I’m trying to be something that’s acceptable to you So stop living lies, you don’t have to try To look good to me Just try honesty

I’m feeling too many things I’m overstimulated Can’t concentrate on any moves I’m making I’m so frustrated I’m always anxious In this soul there’s vacancy And I can’t take it (So much to say) It shouldn’t be this way I’m given signs but I can’t tell which way to go This anger pulses My brain convulses going through the motions And that’s why I can’t talk to anyone and I would rather stay inside So goodbye I can’t be reached at this time if you call me they’ll be no reply so don’t even try cause I’m gone and I’ve been this way for too long it’s too late to change what’s gone wrong you’d do better to just move on Move on I’m feeling too many things I’ve been losing arguments that haven’t happened feeling trapped in things I imagine My mistakes lead me to complacency and I can’t take it and I don’t know what to do first good feels bad. bad feels worse the gift of thought is more like a curse And it all hurts And that’s why I can’t talk to anyone and I would rather stay inside You say hi I can’t look you in the eye if you call me they’ll be no reply so don’t even try cause I’m gone and I’ve been this way for too long it’s too late to change what’s gone wrong you’d do better to just move on Move on I can’t care for myself And I know that you’re trying to help But I can’t care myself How could I care about anyone else when I can’t care for myself (so much to say) I know that you’re trying to help (it shouldn’t be this way) But I can’t care myself (so much to say) How could I care about anyone else (It shouldn’t be this way)

Interstate 00:58
Interstate (Verse 1 Stay in your lane Share this road We share this space and we share this goal but not you We’re on same path from way back now I’m an enemy to you Don’t you know this life is mine/ And I do not have time for you to take away/ you’re welcome for the misery Just stay on your side (Verse 2) I just can not take This hate that you can’t help but cultivate I shake With anger and I can’t ever escape Ingrate. But I won’t let these feelings go to waste You’re fake You’re fake. Why can’t you ever stay in your lane

They Never Lie Down (Verse 1 I mean to live I gotta see what happens I have to see what will become of us But the world It keeps on turning Love makes everything more dangerous We’re leaves on the wind So let the ride begin (Chorus) We’ve come too far to turn back now Might not make it out (They don’t lie down, we don’t lie down) Still can’t trust my mind, running low on time. (They don’t lie down, we don’t lie down now) And I’ve got everything to prove I’m safer on the move (Verse 2) The earth won’t stay beneath me its only New York air I’m breathing now And Lately my body wants to take it easy But Jersey traffic taught me never to slow down We’re leaves on the wind So let the ride begin I know my sins, we all know how this ends We are leaves on the wind So let the ride begin (Chorus) We’ve come too far to turn back now Might not make it out (They don’t lie down, we don’t lie down) Still can’t trust my mind, running short on time. (They don’t lie down, we don’t lie down now) (Chorus) We’ve come too far to turn back now Might not make it out (We never lie down, they never lie down) Still can’t trust my mind, running out of time. (They never lie down, we never lie down) We’ve got everything to prove

Surviving The Night (Verse 1 So if my story is coming true I’m the hero and the monster too And all that I can really do is make melodies of my memories And hope my screams will reach you How will I figure out just what this means My legs are tired from chasing dreams And solving problems I create, I could change my mental state if I was awake (Chorus 1) Last year I was asleep To avoid all of the pain But Time forgot about me And everything has changed I just want to see the sky And remember who I am I want to live with open eyes I’ve decided that I can I’m waking up (Verse 2) I hate how the negative is all I see And the thought of walking away is attractive to me And sometimes I think I’ve had enough. But could never get enough. I can’t live on love. (Chorus) Last year I was asleep To avoid all of the pain But Time forgot about me And everything has changed I just want to see the sky And remember who I am I want to live with open eyes I decided that I can (Chorus 2) I’m happy in my dreams Because none of this is real Sleep is the cousin of death And that’s how I wanna feel No ones coming to the rescue And I can not stay in here I’m sick of feeling nothing I’d rather face the fear Of waking up I’m waking up
