Track Name: Home
Living life like a passenger
Sit tight while the lines all start to blur
But I'm coming home

Get lost trying to find my words
Speak up, reach out but they're never heard
On a lonely road
And I know
I'm coming home

When there ain't no place to go
I'm on my way

Home is where the heart is
The heart is
Never gonna stop
I know that I got this
Home is where the heart is
The heart is
Never gonna stop
Gonna make it to the top
Hey!

Got my bright eyes on when I'm feeling down
Sometimes this city feels like out of town
But it's still my home

Feel like a liar and I've had enough
See the truth is that I'm ready to move on up
I can feel it now
And I know
I'm coming home

When there ain't no place to go
I'm on my way

Home is where the heart is
The heart is
Never gonna stop
I know that I got this
Home is where the heart is
The heart is
Never gonna stop
Gonna make it to the top
Hey!

Tell me
Tell me slow
Will you take me
Where I need to go
Cause I've been running on empty
But I can hear the celebration song
Yeah the rhythm will take me
Back to the place where I belong

Home is where the heart is
The heart is
Never gonna stop
I know that I got this
Home is where the heart is
The heart is
Never gonna stop
Gonna make it to the top
Hey!
Track Name: Name For Myself
He can
Get anything
He wants but he
He never listens to
Anyone
Nothing
Can change the way that he looks at the
Girl I used to be
The way that I want him to see me

Waking up, starting out
Gonna push, gonna fight, make a name for myself
Burning up, break it down
Gonna push, gonna fight, make a name for myself
Welcome to the Stone Age where I'll pave my way
Gonna push, gonna fight, make a name for myself
Welcome to the Gold Age where they know my name
Gonna push, gonna fight, make a name for myself

Last time
He held the reigns
I knew he knew that he's additive as hell
This time / I’ll break the chains
I can't be tamed
Cause I’m stronger than the
Man he claims to be
I’m a warrior, I set myself free

I'm gonna burn it down!

Waking up, starting out
Gonna push, gonna fight, make a name for myself
Burning up, break it down
Gonna push, gonna fight, make a name for myself
Welcome to the Stone Age where I'll pave my way
Gonna push, gonna fight, make a name for myself
Welcome to the Gold Age where they know my name
Gonna push, gonna fight, make a name for myself
Track Name: Let It Fall
Clock keeps ticking and it’s overworked
Hands keep spinning till they go berserk
Running out of time till we cross the line
But the clock’s in your hand and you’ll be just fine

Where the losers win and the winners lose
At least I fall in between the two
Catch an eyeball as it falls from you
Don’t lose sight of the Grand Balloon

Let it fall
Let it fall
Let it fall
Don’t we all

Choose sides with me
Fight this disease
Choose sides with me
Fight this disease

It’s not what is say’d but it’s the way it’s said
Doesn’t matter anyways we all forget
Deciding to stay when we’ve overstayed
Till our minds cut loose and they float away

When winners start to losing and the losers win
What a pretty sight when things take a spin
Round and round is the way it’s always been
Till our pores start spewing and we take a spin

Let it fall
Let it fall
Let it fall
Don’t we all

Choose sides with me
Fight this disease
Choose sides with me
Fight this disease

Think it through
Think it through with me
Fight it off
It’s a strange disease
Talk it through
Talk it through with me
You’ll figure out why we have to leave
And we all fall down
Don’t we all fall down?
To rebloom from our ground
We must all let it fall

Let it fall
Let it fall
Let it fall (Choose sides with me)
Let it fall
Let it fall (Fight this disease)
Let it fall
Don’t we all (Choose sides with me)
Let it fall
Let it fall
Let it fall
Don’t we all (Fight this disease)
Track Name: White Walls
So much to say when you got a brain
Hard to explain 'cause I feel the pain
I feel ashamed when I gotta say
Gotta break, gotta get away

Sometimes I feel I've never come of age
Never change, always stay the same
I steal respect when it comes my way
I guess I'm stuck in the middle

I’ve got a hole in my head
I'll just paint these white walls red

Get away don't think about your life
Girl you're gonna do just fine
Just fall in line to keep yourself alive
Feed the voice that lies deep inside

She can feel it
Feels like shit
I'm at the bottom of a pit
Yeah, and there's no way out of it

I’ve got a hole in my head
I'll just paint these white walls red
I've made so many mistakes
But I won't let them take me away

I’ve got a hole in my head
I'll just paint these white walls red
All that I want is depraved
I'm a slave to the word behave
I've got a hole in my head
I'll just paint, paint them red
I've made so many mistakes
Now the voices are here to stay
Track Name: Don't Talk
Don’t talk to me just kiss
Fixated on your lips
Which way shall we go?

Infatuated when I sleep
Walk the walls in dreams
I can’t believe the feelings that I get

Tell me, tell me why you never see me
Don’t know, don’t know why you just deceive me
Stay up every night and you don’t reach me
Still I’ll wait in silence till you need me

Don’t walk away from me
Hard to explain the feeling it’s so deep
So wonderful

Imagination’s fix
Extrapolate the feelings that I get
I wonder is this love

Tell me, tell me why you never see me
Don’t know, don’t know why you just deceive me
Stay up every night and you don’t reach me
Still I’ll wait in silence till you need me

We fix it
You don’t want it
Don’t know why I need to make it better
We fix it
You don’t want it
Don’t know why I need to make it better

I wonder is this
I wonder is this love
