You gotta make a promise to yourself To achieve the goals in your life You gotta keep that promise No matter what tries to stop you It always starts out as nothin’ but a dream Just a thought maybe something you could try to touch It’s alright to struggle when the times are tough Even if your arm doesn’t reach far enough And we all have those times when life won’t budge We accelerate through them not get caught in the mudd And struggles will come and struggles will go They’re like seasons of wither when it’s blistering cold Don’t let life get you down Don’t let them stand in your way Cuz you made a promise to yourself And now you lead the way When you get knocked down you gotta get back up Dust yourself off and try to look tough You might get some stars; you might get some scars But in the end it’s not about the glory it’s the cause There’s things in your life that you probably regret It’s too bad that it happened, but it’s worse to forget If you forget about it now and start on a blank slate You’ll forget all those lessons so you’re bound to repeat Don’t let life get you down Don’t let them stand in your way Cuz you made a promise to yourself And now you lead the way I said don’t let life get you down Don’t let them stand in your way Cuz you made a promise to yourself And now you lead the way We all have a purpose, we all have a reason And we don’t know what it is, but it’s easy to believe in When you find your calling you’ll know it’s for you Cuz it’ll be ALL YOU WANNA DO! Don’t let life get you down Don’t let them stand in your way Cuz you made a promise to yourself And now you lead the way

I need to fill the void There’s an emptiness about me That I’m trying to let go But it’s buried deep inside me Have you ever not known why But you ache within your soul? There’s a place that you must go But you don’t know how to get there And I said… It’s just down the road There’s someone I know That can save me from this nightmare And I said… It’s just down the road There’s someone I know And I know that I feel safe when I’m with them There’s times when I feel lost There’s times when I can’t find myself Or anyone else In this world There’s times when I don’t know There’s times when I can’t think Of what to do With myself But if I keep my head up And my chin above ground Because at some point This shit will turn around And I said… It’s just down the road There’s someone I know That can save me from this nightmare And I said… It’s just down the road There’s someone I know And I know that I feel safe when I’m with them

Stare out my window Asking the heavens what they know And if I ask them the right questions Maybe I’ll find out something new I stare at the clock Begging it to stop I have an appetite for life But sometimes don’t know how to live it If I continue without change Will my gameplan win the game? I fulfill all my wants But my needs stay the same My desire tends to grow With every day that I grow old I have a hollow heart But can’t allow a broken soul That person that I’m waiting for Is waiting for me too And until we find each other I’ll always take the ample time to… Stare out my window Asking the heavens what they know And if I ask them the right questions Maybe I’ll find out something new I am searching I am searching But I cannot find the answer I question if I’m lonely Because I have too high of standards At least the standards that I set Are standards for myself My mind sometimes believes That being shallow sometimes helps I judge too harshly and too often I find faults instead of good things I never seem to find that Warm fuzzy feeling Do I change or stay the same? Be proactive or stay patient? I tread water trying just to breathe So I can go and find another day to… Stare out my window Asking the heavens what they know And if I ask them the right questions Maybe I’ll find out something new SOMETHING NEW!!! Something new Something new Something new Something new

I can’t see the stars tonight My mind is much to crowded to see the light My soul aches within its core I feel so shattered but I still ignore To press on is to hide my fear As the loneliness follows me every year I grow tired of being alone But when I look to the stars nobody’s home I try to search for the daylight So it can shine its light on me My heart’s broken But it still beats I try to search for the daylight But darkness always follows me Only love Can set me free The sun keeps the surface warm I smile and it keeps people uninformed I feel helpless buried alive My lungs still breathe but I’m trapped inside With every breath a moment’s passed Another breath that I can’t get back And every person that is new Gives me the feeling of deja vu I try to search for the daylight So it can shine its light on me My heart’s broken But it still beats I try to search for the daylight But darkness always follows me Only love Can set me free Sometimes I can’t feel anything Sometimes words are just words But even then I still try to see That life’s more a blessing than curse Although maybe sad I still motivate My choices today change the world So next time you can’t seem to find yourself Remember you’re never alone! I try to search for the daylight So it can shine its light on me My heart’s broken But it still beats I try to search for the daylight But darkness always follows me Only love Can set me free

(Verse 1) In my mind I am royalty/ But, to the outside world I'm just a boy, you see/ So I gotta make sure I keep that mindset/ If I don't, I'll probably end up completely mindless/ Implant cybernetics in my skin to make it thick/ In this business it's gonna be my greatest defense/ Every king deserves his own throne/ This cold, one-bedroom apartment's what I call "home"/ Skipping meals, writing songs, self-delegate/ Try my best to get my life in a better place/ My kingdom ain't surrounded by a moat/ Tears of disappointment leave my carpet fully soaked/ I guess that's what'll be the equivalent/ All the townspeople I see, I ain't fittin' with/ So I just become an introvert/ That way I never set myself up for getting hurt (Chorus x 2) These castle walls, will they stand tall?/ Or will they crumble down, when I give up the crown?/ I'm just one king, but I can't do a thing!/ So is there even a castle... at all? (Verse 2) Life has grown colder, as I've grown older/ Loneliness is on my shoulders, heavy as a boulder/ The reign over my throne has been stopped short/ Because the king has now become the jester of the court/ So I throw my crown into the nearest lake/ The weight & gravity of it is too much to take/ The weight of the crown... is only 'bout a pound/ But in my mind it's a ton, my grip's still around/ The crown... I can't bring myself to throw it down!/ Into the ice-cold water cuz I'd probably drown... without a sound/ I just can't release it!/ This self-conflict, every week repeated/ This is just a test of how much self-detest I got on my chest/ I guess that the message has been set in/ The throne's been relinquished/ Not even the Titanic scraping against the iceberg had a feeling this sinking/ My window of glory disappeared from shrinking/ All the time wasted trying to appease/ All the townspeople with all their feeble needs/ And for their gratitude/ Do they shower the king with gifts or give him a thanks? They just give him attitude/ But he's always the one that they come to/ When there's a problem, he's the one that they run to/ SO NOW MY GIFT IS A DILAPIDATED KINGDOM/ AIN'T NO SUNSHINE WHEN I CAN'T FIND FREEDOM/ ONLY THING MY SCREAMS DO FOR THEEESE CASTLE WAAAAALLS.... is just bounce 'em off (bounce 'em off, bounce 'em off) (Chorus x2) THESE CASTLE WALLS x 10 (Chorus x2)

You’re smart and you’re funny You’re sexy and so lovely You seem to enjoy life all the time I love being around you And I want to be with you To see your beautiful smile You seem to have put a spell on me Because other girls don’t seem so pretty I always enjoy talking to you Through the good times and the bad I can’t get you outta my head I only want to be with you Because I don’t know how to dance But hopefully I can sing Sing my way into your heart Because I know I can offer something I’ll offer all my loving And give you some time to think it through THINK IT THROUGH!!! Now you’ve heard me pour My heart out to you And I cannot predict what you will do Hopefully you will see That you belong with me I’ve never seen anyone else So pretty I know you’ll go out with me Cuz baby I can see Inside you’re soul And it’s pure I know I gotta make it count Cuz one more strike and I’m out But hey, that’s what it’s all about
