Track Name: Catharsis (Feat. Garret Rapp)
I was your stepping stone
Where will you run when the pages turn?
Everything went according to plan
But it unravels as you reach out now you're stuck in the sand
Stand tall with your decisions
There's no going back from this
Make time for your conviction
As my life is built from this

We've found a way to make amends to you and all those like you

I never wanted this
United we understand
So now you must begin
To stand tall
I'm always the better man
I'll always be the better man

I never wanted this
United we understand
So now you must begin to stand tall
I'll always be the better

What have we left but empty space?
Your life make it yours again
Track Name: Broncos In The Basement
Rehearse
Erase your words
They stick to the pages they've been written on
They hinder your actions and underline lust

Let the poetry
Fall from your teeth
Cracking Your canines
And smothering me

This path you choose to walk on
Crumbles with each line you blurt out

This war's on our doorstep
We can't fight with broken hands

Let the poetry
Fall from your teeth
Cracking Your canines
And smothering me
Track Name: Places We've Never Been
Keeping up has never been my strong suit
Now I'm ready to leave you in my tracks
Not a fan of ambiguity so
When I ask you for your hand

Walk on this tightrope
Try not to lose your balance
Look on the bright side
And take back whatever's left
I've pulled through for you again
Can you try to do the same?
Bow your head in embarrassment
Recognize your own mistake

Keeping up has never been my strong suit
Now I'm ready to leave you in my tracks
Not a fan of ambiguity so
When I ask you for your hand

It's not too late to rearrange your life
Make it yours again
Wake up
Look around you
Do you see anything of value?

And now we go to
Places we have never been
If this is what you want then
You know it's what I want
Go to places we have never been
If not not then when?
Track Name: Branches
I've leaned on this for far too long
So hold me up with fortitude
This ground will be unmoved

I'll tower before my fears
I'll hold you up
I'll make a change
I'll call on you for strength
I won't, I won't go to waste

I am the branches crawling towards the light
You are the ground my roots have set inside

I set out with the best intentions
To live on, to know
I will not fall to stagnance
Won't let their anchors take their hold
I set out with the best intentions
To live on, to know

I will not fall to stagnance
I will not be controlled

So hold me up
My withered hands are healed
Track Name: Segments
Everybody knows that this is ours and ours to eep
But nobody is on our team
What is it about those hands that I cannot erase
From my memory full of your embrace

You are the cracks in the sidewalk
Weeds growing in your gaps
Puddles forming on your face and
A walked all over back
And I don't wanna be
The ice caught in between
The segments that divide us into you and me

I am the water trapped with the clouds
And I come crashing home every time

You are the cracks in the sidewalk
Weeds growing in your gaps
Puddles forming on your face and
A walked all over back
And I don't wanna be
The ice caught in between
The segments that divide us into you and me

This is war
The heavens open up
And I am yours
If you can catch me
Track Name: Nothing New Survives Repeating
In all this haze
We've found our way
But you've tried so hard
To stay the same

I've watched them flock to you
Attracting ignorance with hollow words
Soiling art we call our home
How can you fix it when it's all you know?
How can we make this better?
How can we make this change?
I've tried
It's all the same

Patterns of noise won't give life to poetry
Your voice lacks honesty
So give it up
You're not who you claim to be

Inspire youth
Inspire yourself
Put blood on the pages
You've ripped from the shelf
Take pride in all your efforts
You're not alone in this
There's time to try to fix your mistake

Patterns of noise won't give life to poetry
Your voice lacks honesty
So give it up
You're not who you claim to be

Nothing new survives repeating, so bleed what you say
Track Name: The Octothorpe
Open your moth and let it out
All the knowledge pain ring out
A song wont give you closure
But it might for someone else
Let that knowledge guide your pen
It's bigger than anything else

Find your strength in written words
You won't lose hope

Let this serve its purpose
And serve your purpose with us
Let trust overcome you
The words will find a way out

Let fear and doubt
Pay your way down
You've got nothing to lose but your integrity
How can you let this be?

Let this serve its purpose
And serve your purpose with us

Find your strength in written words
You won't lose hope
Track Name: R.L. Stine
Go ahead
Don't you dare disappoint us
Your future's in your hands

My friends say I'm helpless
But I know the truth
I've given up on finding something new
Cover your eyes and try to find our way
Blind faith is all you have for now

This is it for us
What what you say, watch what you do
You and I will see this thing through

Who am I to say it's not in my head
I am never alone, never alone baby
We come out to play all these selfish games
We can forget who we are, forget our own names

Find courage in despair
Find bravery at the edge

Who am I to say it's not in my head
I am never alone, never alone baby
We come out to play all these selfish games
We can forget who we are, forget our own names
Track Name: Segments (Acoustic)
Everybody knows that this is ours and ours to eep
But nobody is on our team
What is it about those hands that I cannot erase
From my memory full of your embrace

You are the cracks in the sidewalk
Weeds growing in your gaps
Puddles forming on your face and
A walked all over back
And I don't wanna be
The ice caught in between
The segments that divide us into you and me

I am the water trapped with the clouds
And I come crashing home every time

You are the cracks in the sidewalk
Weeds growing in your gaps
Puddles forming on your face and
A walked all over back
And I don't wanna be
The ice caught in between
The segments that divide us into you and me

This is war
The heavens open up
And I am yours
If you can catch me
Track Name: What The Big People Do (TCHTSRMX)
Don't cry tonight
You know I'm there so don't be scared tonight
Breathe deep the air
You know these walls cannot contain
The lights too bright
