Start Again 04:25
So we're here now Looking at the sky Watching sunrises bleed And colours go by Don't you think that There's another way To rise up to the sun And take back the day We'll find awakening my friend We'll find salvation at the end Of the world we'll start again So we're here now This will be our sky We're catching sunsets to let Our colours fly high And I know that It's not too late To rise up from ground And change our fate We'll find awakening my friend We'll find salvation at the end Of the world we'll start again We'll find salvation at the end Of the world we'll start again

Night falls over town The witching hour crashes in and all the monsters walk about The skies are filled with flutters The streets are filled with mutters The kings and queens of moonlight all step out And I know where we're heading tonight That small clearing lit by firelight We'll act like animals until the break of dawn And on and on we'll be singing And I know that it'll all turn out alright We look odd to the ones who make their reign in sunlight But we pass them by without a worry or care 'Cause we know There's a whole 'nother world out there x2 And I know where we're heading tonight That small clearing lit by firelight We'll act like animals until the break of dawn And on and on we'll be singing x2

I think my promise is wearing thin As all this pressure I feel within Is coming to the surface Til I turn pink in the face There’s only so much that I can do My friends all scare me and I can’t move I'm breaking down In no time I’ll fess up I’m about to explode My heart is pounding away But I cannot give in It’s hard to hold my tongue But I will stay silent I’m at my breaking point So don’t get me started I’m breathing at top speed And silence is the hardest So break me out of this contract i signed I’m never gonna be alright til I Get out of this mess That I made If this secret is the world to you Why don’t you just keep it between you two Cause I’m breaking down And the stress is killing me And this is pointless How can I end this I want out of this My minds in distress This town is insane Or is it my brain All of these secrets Are getting to me So let me go of the lies I’ve said Let me tell the truth instead I cant wait any longer I want out of these prison chains To shout my secrets and ease my pains Just say it now So I can relax My heart is pounding away But I cannot give in It’s hard to hold my tongue But I will stay silent I’m at my breaking point So don’t get me started I’m breathing at top speed And silence is the hardest

Why is everyone afraid The labels placed on me Aren't who I am You did this to me (Look down at the earth) was this what she wanted? (upon my face) was it for your own gain (into my heart) are you feeling haunted? (into my eyes) can you see my pain I'm not just a monster, don't leave me alone this village life is all that I've ever known they can't seem to muster the courage to stay and I sense that they fear for what might come their way no I'm not just a monster, nor creature of the dark wish I could be judged by the eyes of their hearts don't run me out, please, we've done nothing wrong the image, the demon, this curse is lifelong now it's out of the forest and into the night there's no second chances, it's time to take flight don't call my name, don't even wish me well, cause I can't call this home if my home is in hell yeah it's out of the forest and into the night I've realized now that this isn't my fight my fate's with the damned, and that's alright with me exiled, defiled, now I, I have been freed I have been freed

Life is tough, but in the past life was rougher If you ask me in 10 years from now people suffer. But from our current perspective, they would have it pretty good. Like the people from the suburbs never troubled from the hood. But the people in the suburbs got their own set of troubles. Plus the wealthy and celebrities can definitely struggle So does poorer make you more inclined to draw a greater sympathy Or being a minority deserves the others empathy Cause mentally we’re all ready to choose a certain side Cause suffering’s a game we all play until we die And the more points we can make is how much worse we claim to have it. And that drowning in our sorrows is a standard form of habit Give it up now. We get it man you have it tough now. But everybody has a struggle, everywhere’s a tough town. And it’s a sliding scale from inconvenient to severe And some places are more dangerous, where people live in fear. Where there’s power, there’s corruption. Where there’s money, there is greed. Where there’s lies, there lies prejudice and where the hatred breeds And if you take it to the streets, you’ll notice violence succeeds In only bringing more violence and ringing in deceased. It’s disease and it’s seething through the people who got a short fuse. And when you win the war on drugs you know that more lose. And when you loan to college students you enslave them. And they wonder why frustration plagues their brain - It’s cause we made them. And that’s a statement when your presidential hopeful. Only preys on fear and floats in loads of hatred by the boatful <no pause> Ain’t no wall tall enough to block the ignorance and lazy Of the people that are already here. I’m convinced they’re crazy. So what you’re saying is “Flowny, this world is prone to go If we don’t kill each other this Earth is ready to overflow” “Intolerance and greed are competing for us to overthrow This fantasy of ‘Reason & Peace’ that we had grown to know.” ? No. I’m tryna say open your eyes up. Accept that we done screwed up and it’s time for us to rise up. And wisen up, stop teaching kids to hug their feelings, Cause not everyone’s a winner, and that sometimes there’s a ceiling. But that ceiling can be broken by innovation and hard work. And sometimes that ceiling is just some odd jerk. Working under bullies and idiots that’s a part of life. But learning how to fight through those challenges makes you smart in life. Yeah Don’t preach entitled, teach them finance. We’re weakest when we’re idle, and our actions are what define us. And there’s truth within the Sciences, Not just on faith, but the mountains of research and studies that others paved But don’t deny your spirit, the unknown outweighs the known. And when we’re left with only thoughts our mind can find we’re not alone. And most importantly, think for yourself. I can’t be clearer. Using lyrics from my rap as a guide for life is drear. I ain’t qualified to give you advice. I ain’t a doctor. I’m just sittin here spittin out verses for ya’ll to rock to. Maybe some of what i’m sayin resonates within you Or maybe there’s a quote I wrote, you hate and just offends you That’s the only thing I need from you all, just to continue To keep on penning these last tracks that we’ve all been through. If I can take you there, or my words evoke emotion Or my subject matter causes dispute, that’s all I’m hoping. And ain’t much left to say, my breath is running thin. But if you made it through the most of this track, you made me grin. Maybe you’re a writer or artist or someone who creates What you bring into this world has a value beyond debate And I’ll say it again, this life is tough, but so are you. It’s complex and involved and you’ll fall more than you flew. But this life is yours to make it as great as you can, or not at all. Cause you’re the artist, and your life is the canvas upon the wall.

It's just an ordinary pencil, I can write it all down when I come across whatever on my travels down town, gonna try to wake up early and I'm gonna brush my hair then I'm heading over west and I've no doubt that you'll be there, let me put you in my car and we'll drive real slow and I'll take you to a movie unless you don't want to go I've got two tickets to a political rally cause I can feel a change coming and we're right on the beat oh yeah don't you know don't you know don't you know don't you know don't you know don't you know no no no I've got some dumb ideas and my very best clothes, someone else's horoscope and some directions on my phone and whatever doesn't work I'll take and put it somewhere else because the only thing I have to fear is melody itself and when I put you in my house and we jive real slow there's a whole stack of papers sitting on my gramophone I've got two tickets to a political rally I see the message in the movement building under my feet oh yeah don't you know don't you know don't you know don't you know don't you know don't you know no no no

Verse 1: I've got three words to say Aloud, but, whenever you're Around, I can't remember what to Say. You know I've always got your Back, but, did you know that I'll Always let you cut in Line? That, Chorus: Where I'll go Is always where you are? I don't care how far You could ever be from me. And I know That it's not explicit, But it should be obvious. What I mean by all of this, is Needless to say. Verse 2: I have learned so much from You, and, it's safe to say I Need you, but I think you need me, Too. You can wall me off with Sticks and stones and sacks of flour, But, I keep coming back to You. And [Chorus] ad lib. And if you ever try to run from me, I will chase you. And if you ever lose your wings, I will save you. 'Cause [Chorus x2] Needless to say (x4)

Rejected 04:04
All my life I've wanted to feel accepted But at every turn I've always been rejected So as the days pass by, without a thought or a care I'll leave you in your happiness, while I'm lost in my despair

Look to the sky and you will see A million colors surround me I'm searching far as I can stride To bring you back into my life

When did reason begin to fade, Was the world ever sane, Things used to be as they seemed, Or was that just a dream? The world I knew begins to blur, When every thought begins with her, I can’t remember what filled my mind, I left it all behind. Why did I ever hide? My eyes have never been so wide. The entire world in just one room, Wood and resin and perfume, Dusk and music fills the air, Everything could disappear, And I’d still be happy here, Watching the sun set through her hair.

Sincerity 05:07
Verse 1: Day breaks Heart Breaks The morning after I left you I don't regret the things I said And you guys probably don't too Sincerity is what we finally reached today A friendship years in the making that we decided to piss away One road diverged in three Two followed closely while one broke free Like a bird from a cage she flew away Realized she was hungry for the seed she was given Yesterday I want to go back to yesterday When our goals were the same Every day was a game And what was different hadn't gone away Chorus: I got tired of the pressure You got tired of my broken record I got tired of letting you let me down And you probably remember When we said we'd always be together I guess we'll look back on that promise now Verse 2: Though it hasn't been very long I can't remember who was right or wrong Sincerity threw it all away I guess for the best cause we said what we really wanted to say I guess I could say that I was wrong And I should because you knew it all along Because in the end I still care Our friendship is a warm summer that will always be there

She defies the working laws To make me pay Sends the world into eternal pause With her own ways It won't be long, until She challenges the gods This all cannot be real HAS SHE LOST HER MIND!? She finally crossed the line I cannot waste, any time If I let her get away The entire world will fade to grey I only have one chance To make this right If I let her get away The world will come undone I have seen realities But not my own Warped and twisted tragedies Befall them all Did she cause all of this With her transgressions I cannot believe SHE WOULD GO THIS FAR! She finally crossed the line I cannot waste, any time If I let her get away The entire world will fade to grey I only have one chance To make this right If I let her get away The world will come undone If you stop all of this We can make it right We can go back and Fix EVERYTHING!

Verse 1 We are the evil, the purest of hate There is no way you can deny your fate today We are the blue-eyed death with smiles on a face We're bringing darkness to your puny pony race Nowhere to run, we're already here We came to feed on your emotions, we can feel your fear Nowhere to hide from us we will enslave the Ponykind. And we will rule Equestria Brigde 1 One day our suffering will end (No it will not, no it will not) We'll fight the swarm and we will free our promised land (No you will not, no you will not) We'll rise again for moon and sun (And you will fall, and you will fall) The revolution in our hearts has just begun Chorus Surrender all your hopes and dreams Your world is not what it really seems Enslavement, you have lost this war The Sun will never shine again like it did before Verse 2 We are the ocean, the ocean of pain We are the desert and we are your cleansing rain You heart will shriek from our hideous teeth It's funny that you'll never know what lies beneath Enough talking, let us feed and feed Give us your love and joy, 'cause this is what we need I hear the noises of her wings Here comes our mother Chrysalis Bridge 2 She is our master She is our leader Down on your knees Hail to the queen Chorus Bridge 3 We are feeding on your thoughts and fears Drinking every drop of bloody tears Rotting in the cold and humid cells Nightmares will become a living hell

This pile of books, Is my only friend, We’ve been to worlds far away, But I know it’s just pretend. This corner nook, By the window sill, Shows a world as clear as day, A destiny I can’t fulfil. If I had a spell, That would work on you, It would likely make all my dreams come true, But, if I had a spell, That would work on you, I don’t think that I’d be able to follow through. This pile of books, Has been my ball and chain, I’ve held by the weight of the words, But I won’t make that mistake again. This heavy door, Under lock and key, Has never been held shut, By anyone other than me.

Glimmer 04:24
You’ve got me On the precipice with you You have all the leverage now All that’s keeping us from oblivion Is a glimmer of hope That you’ll hear me out A cry for attention I hear you A grave apprehension I feel you Don’t really want Don’t really want to do this You really want You really want a friend Just one I’ve got you second-guessing it I can sense you hear my plea All that’s keeping you from ending it all Is a glimmer of hope That you’ll listen to me A cry for attention I hear you A grave apprehension I feel you Don’t really want Don’t really want to do this You really want You really want a friend Just one (x4): If you’re looking for a sign Here it is: Stay with us

I will never forget, the day. Don't let it be true, don't let it be true. Why must we, let go, of those we love? It's not, it's not fair. Don't let it be true. I know you're here, Present in my dreams, in my thoughts, all around me, I will never forget you. I'm not ready to say goodbye (why must we), So don't go (let go) where I can't go (of those we love), I need you here (it's not, it's not fair). I need you here (don't let it be true). With me. Please don't go. Please don't go.

Complication 03:31
Verse: Insides on fire like they're doused in gasoline I've made made a mess of things they never seem to be Quite as simple as your quiet explanation Brought about by yet another complication I know you and I know you well Can't wait but only time will tell If I could get down and get up It’s finally time I ditched the cup Parade through the streets lined with broken glass and alcohol Pre-chorus: Don’t say you’re sorry Chorus: (Oh no, Oh no) It’s really starting to get to me (Oh no, Oh no) It’s not quite you, it’s not quite me (Oh no, Oh no) Can’t make me go so peacefully (Oh no, Oh no) I said some things I didn’t mean (Oh no, Oh no) It’s really starting to mess with me (Oh no, Oh no) It’s not quite you, it’s not quite me Verse: I don’t know but I believe yeah You’re not the same mare from the peaceful town that I met so long ago on that fateful night of that magic show just floating through life you had nowhere to go you’ve got somewhere to go I’ve gotta cut you off because now you’re out of control Try, try, try and try again Try as I might I just can’t pretend It doesn’t scare me To see you like this Sunken red eyes mixed with cider and gin Another night, Another fight it happened again Chorus (Reggae): (Oh no, Oh no) It’s really starting to get to me (Oh no, Oh no) It’s not quite you, it’s not quite me (Oh no, Oh no) Can’t make me go so peacefully (Oh no, Oh no) I said some things I didn’t mean (Oh no, Oh no) Cuz time be short and rapid (Oh no, Oh no) gotta make every single chant count Your actions and broken promises fill my aching heart with doubt Pre-chorus: Don’t say you’re sorry Chorus: (Oh no, Oh no) It’s really starting to get to me (Oh no, Oh no) It’s not quite you, it’s not quite me (Oh no, Oh no) Can’t make me go so peacefully (Oh no, Oh no) I said some things I didn’t mean (Oh no, Oh no) It’s really starting to mess with me (Oh no, Oh no) It’s not quite you, it’s not quite me

Wanderlust 04:00
V1 I'm not afraid when I'm swimming with sharks Or monsters or things that go bump in the dark I will quite freely jump out of a plane And when there is lightning, I'll dance in the rain Its fearless and thoughtless and careless I guess But when I take risks they turn out for the best (Chorus) And I'll fly so far Lie on the beaches and whisper to stars I can lose my mind In tumbling cascades and the pebbles I find And I'll travel all the lands I'll write my story with trembling hands Though my eyes may sting and blur I cant get enough, I've got to see more of this world V2 I'm not afraid to go roll in the snow While wearing swimear and freezing my toes Cliff edges dont scare me, or heights, bugs or slime Or missing the moment, or running out of time It's brave, but I crave when I'm saving myself I'll flip from the bunk beds and climb on the shelves (Chorus) V3 I'm not afraid to go breaking the laws 'just don't hurt nobody' is what I've been taught And I will quite happily go sing on the stage Or sail on the waves while the seas full of rage I can't be afraid of these physical things I know I can heal from the grazes and stings (Chorus)
