Track Name: Children's Dreams
tonight we feast on children's dreams
on the hope that seems to drown us
sometimes i scream so loud sound wont come out
the air around me wont move
i need a new attitude
i need someone to show me how to breathe again
breathe

tonight i see you for who you are
and i am broke but not broken
our lungs heave heavy loads inside our chests
in spite of the weight upon them
its easy to free the mind
but bodies have a harder time
the years weigh down upon your ribcage
whether hearts are heavy or they're light
they're still locked up and out of sight
i wanna see the one that lies in you
i need a new attitude
i need someone to show me how to breathe again
breathe
Track Name: Two Can Play At This Game
what is love good for
when honesty is a counterfeit currency
when your words only burn
when you're occupied with robbing me of everything
two can play at this game too
i don't want to do what i have to
Track Name: No Take Backs
i got a forgiving heart
i got a forgiving history with you
but all roads lead to an end

i got a forgiving heart
but my heads not interested in the trouble
of breaking it down one more time for you
if the message hasn't gotten through
well there's not much more than i can do

its for good this time i'm not taking it back

i got a forgiving heart
i didn't give it to you so you could break it
and i'm a steadfast and loyal friend
you gotta hurt me real bad for me to want our friendship to end

but its for good this time i'm not taking it back
Track Name: Fired Up
c'mon baby let's get fired up
you said you got nothing to loose let's get fired up
i've seen you on fire before
i've seen you face down on the floor
c'mon baby let's get fired up

the night is early we hit the streets running
hit the streets running already your body's humming
its too close to call its too soon to tell
you'll loose it tonight it'll all go to hell
the night is early you hit the streets running

i'm so tired of losing you so tired of letting go
can't keep holding on can't get a grip to hold
i try to keep up but i'm losing ground
you hide yourself somewhere you'll never be found
i'm so tired of losing you so tired of watching you go

c'mon baby let's get fired up
said you got nothing to loose, let's get fired up
you burn out too fast
you're smoldering ash
your fire won't last
you're wasted you're trash
c'mon baby let's get fired up
Track Name: Small Talk
your small talk is killing me
and no i don't need your sympathy
i can make it i can
i can make it on my own

could you please direct your attention
in another direction
i would rather be
i would rather be alone

you see i got better things to do
than bullshit with you

your small talk is killing me
and no i don't need your sympathy
i can make it i can
i can make it on my own
Track Name: My Heart My House My Home
kind hearts are hard to find
my life's been filled with empty time

o i may go alone
i make a quiet house my home

should i let you in
should i make you my kin
should i let you in my heart my house my home

you got some sweet sweet talk
your key fits the lock to my heart my house home
Track Name: Choose Carefully
my one and only body
is a vessel for words and melody

i use it to manifest positivity
i use it decompress all the nonsense i see

choose each word carefully
through them powerful forces speak
