Track Name: Promise
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
Track Name: Down The Road
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
Track Name: Something New
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
Track Name: I Can't See The Stars
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
Track Name: Castle Walls
(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)
Track Name: Wanna Be With You
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
