Track Name: Sunset Threat
Like a dopamine but in my chest that
Keeps me restless is a weight too heavy
The milligrams that keep me on this
Chemical imbalance beam

I’ve been running from the sunset threat
But I guess I’m a mess
I walk until the end
I’m knee-deep in this wreck
Knee-deep in this wreck

Change for reasons you call it treason
When you change like the seasons
Theres a slight misconception

In the daylight I can feel you breathe
when the words hit home you speak
but in the midnight when I hit the ground
I’m down for the count
I’m down for the count

I let the sleep consume me
Along with the fear of rest
Let the dark in for a second for a mental check
For a mental check

Change for reasons you call it treason
When you change like the seasons
Theres a slight misconception

My body is suffering
from the lack of oxygen
You’re asking for my lungs
but I am still breathing

In the daylight I can feel you breathe
when the words hit home you speak
but in the midnight when I hit the ground
I’m down for the count
I’m down for the count

When you try to tell it all
I think you knew this all along
Was the bargain really worth the cost?

I’ve been running from the sunset threat
I’ve been running from the sunset threat
I’ve been running from the sunset threat
I’ve been running from the sunset threat

To be a shine in the dark
Two clenched fists
I can’t be alone
I can’t be along in this

In the daylight I can feel you breathe
when the words hit home you speak
but in the midnight when I hit the ground
I’m down for the count
I’m down for the count

In the daylight I can feel you breathe
when the words hit home you speak
but in the midnight when I hit the ground
I’m down for the count
I’m down for the count

But when you try to tell it all
I think you knew this all along
Was the bargain really worth the cost?

When you try to tell it all
I think you knew this all along
Was the bargain really worth the cost?

I’ve been running from the sunset threat
I’ve been running from the sunset threat
I’ve been running from the sunset threat
I’ve been running from the sunset threat
Track Name: High Tide
Let's calm down a little bit,
Close your eyes for just one minute,
The fact that we painted all over it,
Oh, in blacks and blues, blacks and blues.

I took a walk down this morning,
Realized that life get's boring,
But I've been thinking lately,

If the world heard me,
you might as well hate me
and if the world heard me,
you might as well hate me

Step back, step back,
and look at how we got here right now.
Let back, let back,
all the memories that once taught us how.
Show your face, show your smile,
I know it's been a while (I know it's been a while)

The grass is greener on this side,
I build myself up based on pride,
In the dark, I can see the light,
Only when it's high tide.

Step back, step back,
and look at how we got here right now.
Let back, let back,
all the memories that once taught us how.
Show your face, show your smile,
I know it's been a while (I know it's been a while)

Let's crack the glass of the hour,
We are higher than the highest tower,
If I lay down, don't more at all.
Step outside of my mind to watch me fall asleep.

Asleep,
slowly I'll creep my way into the world's dreams
Will I find you there?
We'll explore life's affairs.

No, no
No, no
Only on the high tide

No, no
No, no
Only on the high tide

High tide is coming,so I'll keep swimming
Swimming for my life, as long as I'm living
Living for today, not for any other,
I am here strong,screw all the others
Who told me I couldn't, told me I can't,
Life is too short, you should take that chance
Only on the high tide.

Let's calm down a little bit
Track Name: Rising Son
I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place,
But it's a little more welcoming,
Cause its a little more like home
A little more like home

I take a step back
and remember just how I got to this point
I'm kicking myself,
and tripping over a lost cause.

Well giving in never seemed so appealing,
but there's no other way I could see myself healing, so I
Load the bullet, put the gun to my face,
take a deep breath in,
and determine my fate

I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place,
But it's a little more welcoming,
Cause its a little more like home,
A little more like home

I've got my head in the clouds,
but my heart in my stomach.
Cause I can only go down
after I reach the summit.
I'll put on a show with no one in attendance,
cause I've been depending on my independence.

What's the point of opening up if you're only gonna get shot down?


I've got my head in the clouds,
but my heart in my stomach.
Cause I can only go down
after I reach the summit.
I'll put on a show with no one in attendance,
cause I've been depending on my independence.
Track Name: Hell & Back
I've got burns on my feet
went to hell and back just to
feel the heat, yeah I needed that vacation

Misguided interpretations
You know I got a devil hanging on my shoulder
and an angel on the other

They say it takes 21 days
to break a habit
but its been three weeks and I'm still not over it

When you see me falling down
You better not crumble
Oh you gotta keep your head up and wake up
No more living in denial

I'm in at a place
I can't erase your hands
I got nothing left to lose
but I still tighten grip

In an executive decision, from the top to the bottom,
would you really call this trust?
I've gone every day, every spring, every autumn,
I think I've had enough, yeah

I'm in at a place
I can't erase your hands
I got nothing left to lose
but I still tighten grip

I've got burns on my feet
went to hell and back just to
feel the heat, yeah I needed that vacation

Misguided interpretations
You know I got a devil hanging on my shoulder
and an angel on the other
Track Name: Friends In The Deep End
You can be you, and I can be me,
Wish I could muster up the courage to work this out eventually.
And there's not much that I can do,
Cause I've been burning bridges ever since the spring of 1992.

I've been feeling six feet down,
While you get high with your fake friends,
The words that you chose were shallow,
I'm making friends in the deep end.

The rain pours down like the pain of the state I've...
I've left myself in.
Breath of liquor and smoke open windows to my soul just to...
Watch all my sins.
I bathe my hands in the ocean's undertow to let a...
Story begin.
I wish I was a little smarter because living underwater is...
It's no place to live.

Dusted off some shelves and I found some old pages so I..
I could reminisce.
About the pictures, graduation, memories of us just laying and...
All kinds of that shit

I never thought it'd be a switch
I've prepared for this

This is my true self,
and it's better than I thought it would be.

You can be you, and I can be me,
Wish I could muster up the courage to work this out eventually.
And there's not much that I can do,
Cause I've been burning bridges ever since the spring of 1992.
Cause I've been feeling six feet down,
While you get high with your fake friends,
The words that you chose were shallow,
I'm making friends in the deep end.

I've had it up to here, with all the cries and the bullshit,
It's time to decide if you and I should call it quits,
One shot, couldn't take the risk to hit it.
Track Name: Open Tab
What's your claim?
I don't even know your last name,
but I'm trying to
Cause your eyes are so damn blue.
I'm six beers deep and I stumble my way
Over to you

You're like a midnight thief
(you're like a midnight thief),
You want to flea the scene
(you want to flea the scene),
Without giving me an opportunity

Oh, you told me not to hesitate,
Told me to step up to the plate.
We define the memories,
Turning grays into blues and greens.

With a gaze that blinds me from thought,
I thought it would be good to talk the talk
so I can learn your name;
another word for beautiful.

And I know how small the room gets when it hits,
cause we're both not here for this.
I'll learn to walk before I run;
A steady pace for a pretty face.

What's your claim?
I don't even know your last name,
but I'm trying to
Track Name: Upstream
Cause I'm swimming upstream
Another heart attack, a cardiac
oh a heart-felt getaway

And if my hands warm up from the fire in your eyes
I will never compromise the lies that you thought up inside

The piece of me that quite
A heart so bold, blood thick
A weathered path too lost to follow it

Maybe I'll catch you on the way back
A trust fall to get those years back

At the words we speak
At the knees I'm weak
At the broken promise

We buried the body of
water that I failed to float in
Life is full of reference
on a shelf closed by book ends

The bridge that broke halfway
was just my demolition

Reflection reflects backwards
like how my life's been

Cause I've been swimming upstream
Another heart attack, a cardiac
oh a heart-felt getaway

I can promise, I'm only human
