Track Name: Brainfreeze
Stay positive now. We'll keep pushing forward, no one will hold us back.
Track Name: Driftwood
We keep dragging ourselves through days
works almost over and we just can't wait to get away
Losing our minds!
Just to pay our bills, always looking forward to the thrills (with all our friends)
We're out all night (all night)
Looking up at these city lights, watching the worlds pass us by
If we could fly, we'd never have our feet touch the ground, forever walking with our heads in the clouds!

We worked so hard to get where we wanna be no one will stop us and one day you might see if you stand in our way then you'll end up just like the rest, rest of them x2

Snap back!
Late nights on these city streets sitting around just staring at our blistered feet
wasting our time
And you've turned your back on us
And we know now what we should've known then.
Wishing back to those simple days when friends weren't burning bridges with all of the words that they say we're not wasting time we're gonna call everyone of you out line by line.

We worked so hard to get where we wanna be no one will stop us and one day you might see if you stand in our way then you'll end up just like the rest, rest of them x2

You won't get the best of, you won't get the best of us
Best of us.

We worked so hard to get where we wanna be no one will stop us and one day you might see if you stand in our way then you'll end up just like the rest, rest of them
You won't get the best of us.
Track Name: Daydreaming
Memories of waking up every morning, with no enthusiasm just to get to school
Paid no attention in class, daydreaming
We were content that we weren't that cool.

Never forget the times we had
Don't listen to a word they said
Nobody will get us down
Even though we've grown up now

The years go flying by
Still living on the high
Of stupid things we did
When we all were kids
Stuck with us through our years
We'll fight away the tears
Focus on the things
That made us who we are

We spent most of our long teenage years
Running amuck and always down on our luck
Ditching school early to go hang out
Down the park, we'll stay till after dark.

Weekends aren't long enough
And friend zones kinda suck
Limp Bizkit played all day
That's when we come out to play
Track Name: For Beers
So this was all a test,
I confess that I probably didn't do my best
But I'm better off alone and I'm feeling indifferent even now that your gone
This will always be the place I call home so it's time for you to saddle up and go
And I'm not gonna fake that I miss you and I hope u feel the same way too

You always thought that you meant more to me than I did to you well you're wrong,
You were just killing time for me to grow a pair and move along
You've spread yourself too thin,
your concerns were my priorities, yet mine were none of your concern

Well It's all said and done this doors closed and you really think that you have won
Forgot how strong I am and I can't believe I let this happen again
I keep ignoring you but you won't leave me alone and keep calling I'll just keep hanging up the phone
We've played this game and I came out on top so I wish, I wish you'd just stop

You always thought that you meant more to me than I did to you well your wrong,
You were just killing time for me to grow a pair and move along
You've spread yourself too thin, your concerns were my priorities, yet mine were none of your concern
You never really cared about what this meant for me so take all your things with you when you leave.
Track Name: Blood Moon (ft. Nicholas Wilkinson)
Running late for work and I can't get up out of bed,
The room spinning up above me and a pounding in my head
My pockets inside out empty this paydays come and gone
I left a note for you last week but I don't know if it's been read

And I know that you know we're not leaving here tonight,
The drinks are on the house and we aren't running from a fight.

I used to rush all of my words and ignore all my mistakes
I never heard from you after you left this empty place
So I'll carry on with my head high and a hole still in my heart
And just work away my life wishing that that I could press restart.

So with this life jaded and a heart that's faded,
I'll keep pretending that I think I made it
But i have no money, and nobody by my side
Only my closest friends will be with me till I die
Track Name: Straight Up Hangs
Let's go. I woke up this morning on my best friends couch
Every time I sleep there I always slouch
We grabbed all our stuff and we hit the road
Turned up the music just to drown out the world
Another couple hours till we hit the next show
We've been driving for days, time's going slow
But we don't care, cause you're all here
Shouting back the words that we all live for years

Looking back so much has changed
But the best people in my life have stayed the same
Every choice has a consequence
And I will never let my friends be the expense

Sunday morning all our friends are here
My eyes are bloodshot, I still smell like beer
We leave today so I should go and pack
Cause we're in this together and we're not looking back.

These endless roads just keep rolling on
Were exhausted, chin up, we're headstrong
Money's low after that last fuel stop
And we'll always dream of coming out on top
We will fight through the bad and the good
Forever searching just to be understood
Cause this is all we really wanna do
And we're coming to a town near you

These nights at home they get old pretty fast
We sit around and talk about good times past
We dream all night of times spent on the road
And always will till we get old

We are not afraid to take a chance
And you could never change our stance
We are not afraid to take a chance
That's what we're all about
Track Name: Seekers
If friends were all you need
then where the fuck were you
when we needed you.
You've burned all bridges here
and buried us in the past
with all your high school friends
and your long lost lovers.

I built this on my own
and I won't let you tear it apart.
I worked hard, poured my heart out
yet you went ahead and threw it away.
You can't see what you've done to me, or any one.
Your head was in the clouds.
But your heart was on the ground

So after all these years
I've finally figured it out
Those stupid games you play
That's why you kept me at bay
And in all honesty
This is what I have seen
You can't commit to anything

You don't know who you are.
You can't see what you've become.
You threw it away and led us all astray.
We waited so long, we sat on our hands
waiting just for you.
So never forget that you turned your back on us.
You threw your friendships away and you turned them to dust.
Everywhere we turn we don't know who we can trust.

You've spread your bullshit lies behind computer screens
Now we can see who you really are

So after all these years
I've finally figured it out
Those stupid games you play
That's why you kept me at bay
And in all honesty
This is what I have seen
You can't commit to anything

For every moment you have taken from me
I won't hide, I'll show the world just what they wanted to see

You wanna call me out
You can't see everything I put in
The second time this year and then
You drew all the lines between me
And everyone I cared about

So after all these years
I've finally figured it out
Those stupid games you play
That's why you kept me at bay
And in all honesty
This is what I have seen
You can't commit to anything

I'd let bygones be bygones but I tried to do the right thing by you!
Track Name: It's All About You
You're all washed up, You've got nothing left
lost and confused, Left all alone
To all your thoughts, I'm glad that you're gone
You hurt my family, You put them through hell
I can't quite describe, The feelings that I get
When I think back to what you did
And the coward that you were
When you threw it all away
The smoke has cleared and now
You've realised what you've done
And you can't escape these consequences

Mark my words, I'll never take the path you chose
And now I know the truth. We'll never meet again

You both chose to throw your weight around.
You tried to tear my family apart, Unbound.
Waited forever for an apology
But your still sitting on your fucking hands

Like father like son, that's what they say,
I would never wish to grow up
To be just like you
you tarnished what we had
And what could have been
And no one could have seen a thing
That had come from you

I was four thousand K's away I got the phone call and I couldn't think of a single word to say
I was shocked I was stunned and I didn't know what to think
And now I've been pushed to the brink

So now you know this is a broken home and all because you let your emotions go and I Will never forget the things you said and all the lies that you put in my head.
Track Name: Made It Back
Late nights sitting under the stars, our favourite songs stuck on repeat,
Waste our nights away in the summer heat
We sit and drink over open flames, in 5 years time it won't be the same
Living in the present cant think ahead, we'll get drunk, talk shit, then go to bed

Sometimes I think about where my life is going but I
Don't have a clue, what I'm gonna do
I need to find direction soon

It's not my fault I struggle with it, I can't seem to be an adult. Responsibility ain't my strong suit
I still can't find somewhere that's home
And I can never stand to be alone
I need to take this life and make it my own.

I think we've made it back, back to the place we thought we'd never, make it back together
And all our time will be spent building something better, something to be forever
Track Name: Loyalties
Waiting for the perfect time to take our stand and draw a line in the sand
That you've already crossed
To be fair I started this but I'm not that petty.
You can't take me out of something that I created.

If I was you I wouldn't have taken this for granted.
I've still got people who believe in me.
It's pretty obvious, you've chosen
where your loyalty lies. Look around at all the friends that you have spent
It's pretty obvious you've made a choice on borrowed time
There's nothing left but time well spent
I'm calling out every lie

We're so much better off without you.
Our friends work just as hard as us, yet you still write them off.
You won't hold any of us down, not anymore
we're gonna see the world.

So how the fuck did you think that I would react?
You've given up on your dreams but we will live out ours
It's pretty obvious, you've chosen where your loyalty lies. Look around at all the friends that you have spent
It's pretty obvious you've made a choice on borrowed time
There's nothing left but time well spent
I'm calling out every lie

This is what I worked for,
what I fought for
You can't stop me,
You can't stop me now.
I'll keep pushing myself
to the limit
until I can find
what I'm searching for.
