Track Name: Blank New Slate
You know I wouldn’t wish
this life on anyone
it’s harder then you think
promises come undone
the unknown commitment
you fall so blindly to
but I see the passion
it’s everything to you

stick to your guns
no matter what you done love
the past can’t define you
no matter what
tomorrow brings a

Blank new slate, Blank new slate
The world just has to wait
Blank new slate, Blank new slate
you can not hesitate
Blank new slate , Blank new slate

I know how you’re feeling
holding back the tears
it’s not a fuckin hobbie
you wanted this for years
everyones getting older
the fear is crushing you
darling you don’t want the life
they’d instilled in you

stick to your guns
no matter what you done love
the past can’t define you
no matter what
tomorrow brings a

Blank new slate, Blank new slate
The world just has to wait
Blank new slate, Blank new slate
you can not hesitate
Blank new slate , Blank new slate

Blank new slate, Blank new slate
The world just has to wait
Blank new slate, Blank new slate
you can not hesitate
Blank new slate , Blank new slate
Track Name: White Noise
Instant gratification
saturated dreams
muted in the background
to the money driven schemes
surface level content
with no substance at all
drowning all hope
in alcohol

White Noise is all I see
White Noise is Taking over me
White Noise is all I see
White Noise is taking over me
White Noise, White Noise, White Noise
White Noise, White Noise, White Noise

No authenticity
Nothing more then a name
a karaoke singer
dying for fame
times are getting desperate
are we losing our minds ?
so much potential
if you open the blinds

White Noise is all I see
White Noise is Taking over me
White Noise is all I see
White Noise is taking over me
White Noise, White Noise, White Noise
White Noise, White Noise, White Noise

White Noise is all I see
White Noise is Taking over me

White Noise is all I see
White Noise is Taking over me
White Noise is all I see
White Noise is taking over me
White Noise, White Noise, White Noise
White Noise, White Noise, White Noise
Track Name: Powerless
For a moment take a step back
are you doing what you wanted?
are you about to crack?
our we living a illusion ?
Uniformed citizen
does the cost of living
make you feel trapped in?

Do you ever feel so powerless?
Like theres nothing more to this?
is it driving you to the edge?
about to fall
lose it all
lose it all

Oh it feels like I have no control
over my life
time will take a toll
Oh it feels like I have no control
over my life
time will take a toll

Nothing in this world
is worth the pain
to devote your life to
when theres nothing to gain
heres to the nights
we felt so alone
wandering the streets
into the unknown

Do you ever feel so powerless?
Like theres nothing more to this?
is it driving you to the edge?
about to fall
lose it all
lose it all

Oh it feels like I have no control
over my life
time will take a toll
Oh it feels like I have no control
over my life
time will take a toll

Oh it feels like I have no control
over my life
time will take a toll
Oh it feels like I have no control
over my life
time will take a toll

Oh it feels like I have no control
over my life
time will take a toll
Oh it feels like I have no control
over my life
time will take a toll
Track Name: Long Run
Do you see a future
in the dying light?
Do you wanna join us?
I know you love to write
we’ll put the past behind us
I know these scars will mend
Tomorrows promising
we’ll start this over again

I see the drive, deep in your eyes
candles burning
all the fear & regret
it’s not over yet
can’t deny it
dreams & despair
there right over there
can you feel it?
do you have what it takes?
are you in it for the

Long run baby, the long run baby
the long run can you feel it ?
The long run baby, the long run baby
the long run run can you see it?
Ohh ohh ohh
ohh oh ohh

Are you fixed to this city?
would you leave it all behind ?
get lost in the moment
& still be fine
it’s not for everyone
theres no consistently
if this what you want
come join the party

I see the drive, deep in your eyes
candles burning
all the fear & regret
it’s not over yet
can’t deny it
dreams & despair
there right over there
can you feel it?
do you have what it takes?
are you in it for the

Long run baby, the long run baby
the long run can you feel it ?
The long run baby, the long run baby
the long run run can you see it?
Ohh ohh ohh
ohh oh ohh

For once in your life
live it up tonight
don’t ever let this feeling go
don’t ever let this feeling go

are you in it for the

Long run baby, the long run baby
the long run can you feel it ?
The long run baby, the long run baby
the long run run can you see it?
Ohh ohh ohh
ohh oh ohh
Track Name: Race Against Time
Theres no future darling
least you feel it inside
feeling low since 14
all the thoughts you hide
living on the edge
looking pretty withdrawn
musics the reason
you carry on

all your life
you never felt like you fit in
all your hope is wearing thin

I wanna be that voice
that gets you through the night
this is not the end
I wanna be that light
you’re not the only one
who feels this way
I swear my love
you’re gunna be ok
in a race against time
in a race against time

Never thought you’d reach 20
in the back of your mind
no one knows that story
too broken to rewind
it’s been a few years
look how far you’ve come
it’s hard to break the cycle
when you feel so numb

all your life
you never felt like you fit in
all your hope is wearing thin

I wanna be that voice
that gets you through the night
this is not the end
I wanna be that light
you’re not the only one
who feels this way
I swear my love
you’re gunna be ok
in a race against time
in a race against time

No matter what anyone tells you
you're not alone
they can’t change how you feel
cause it’s so fuckin real

I wanna be that voice
that gets you through the night
this is not the end
I wanna be that light
you’re not the only one
who feels this way
I swear my love
you’re gunna be ok
in a race against time
in a race against time
Track Name: Bonneville
This is not for the faint of heart
come along if you dare
we’ll cruise the streets
like we own the road
through the night
we don’t care
in our dreams
we’re riding Bonneville’s
T120s heart racing like hell
leather jackets, swaying in the cool breeze
where were going
we’ll never tell


Don’t wait up for me
don’t wait up for me
I want to be free
I’m already gone

Don’t wait up for me
don’t wait up for me
I want to be free
I’m already gone

Cruising north on the west end
any moment we’ll be in La
Get a taste of true freedom
burning fuel down the highway
This moments ours ,Theres no turning back
no second guessing, we got nothing to lose
hit me with a round of cold ones
don’t be stingy on the booze

Don’t wait up for me
don’t wait up for me
I want to be free
I’m already gone

Don’t wait up for me
don’t wait up for me
I want to be free
I’m already gone

Don’t wait up for me
don’t wait up for me
I want to be free
I’m already gone
Track Name: Badass
You don’t need validation
you got your dreams to pursue
you’ve been through it all love
no one can fuck with you
not in this place & time
got no patience for that shit
it’s moments like this
that makes you wanna fight for it

This is your life
your life forever
I wanna feel the way you do
Driven ambition
you’re on a mission
I wanna be like you


You’re so upfront
Got no secrets to conceal
In a world of lies
you always keep it so real
You see right through the glamour
that life ain’t right for you
you know who you are love
theres nothing you can’t do

This is your life
your life forever
I wanna feel the way you do
Driven ambition
you’re on a mission
I wanna be like you

Sometimes in the dead of night I wonder
was this all fate ?
out of the blue
you turned my life around
forever inspired by you

This is your life
your life forever
I wanna feel the way you do
Driven ambition
you’re on a mission
I wanna be like you
Track Name: Nostalgic Brightlights
Dreaming about tomorrow
but living for today
when our dreams seemed endless
believed in what they say
when our imagination
was the centre of it all
you were always there
to catch me when I fall

oh oh Nostalgia
oh oh Nostalgia

Summer seemed forever
road trips to the beach
everything we wanted
was not far from reach
music in the background
would never fade away
& would make us who we are today

oh oh Nostalgia
oh oh Nostalgia

waking up early
Saturday morning shows
where the future will take us
no one really knows
the fads & trends of our times
are craved in stone
& all these memories
drive us back home

oh oh oh oh Nostalgia
oh oh oh oh Nostalgia
oh oh oh oh Nostalgia
oh oh oh oh Nostalgia
I’ll never forget, forget you you said
I’ll never forget, forget you you said
I’ll never forget, forget you you said
forget you to the end
Track Name: In The End
Time can’t heal everything
the lost we feel will always sting
those golden years we can’t rewind
I lost you love before your time

& we won’t feel better in the morning
life changes without warning

who will we be remembered for ?
In the end , In the end
we were so much more
in the end
who will we be remembered for ?
In the end , In the end
we were so much more
in the end

That day took me by surprise
I never got to say good bye
The news cut me like a knife
13 years of my life

who will we be remembered for ?
In the end , In the end
we were so much more
in the end
who will we be remembered for ?
In the end , In the end
we were so much more
in the end

who will we be remembered for ?
In the end , In the end
we were so much more
in the end
who will we be remembered for ?
In the end , In the end
we were so much more
in the end
Track Name: Through The Roof
Yeah it takes guts
to stand up & take the upper hand
fight for what you love when
they don’t understand
a toast to all the years
feeling sorry for yourself
a pity party here
with no trophies on the shelf
you love to point fingers
always someone to blame
condescending ego
without the fame
I know beneath the surface
you’re jealous as fuck
you love to tell yourself
it’s just god damn luck

You Crave the sympathy
you want it all for free
it’s just too much lately
through the roof
through the roof
you want all eyes on you
if they only knew
what you really do
through the roof
through the roof


Always calling in
blame it on anxiety
it takes one to know one
are you kidding me?
to all the years of hell
yet we get up everyday
you’re striving in the spotlight
you got nothing to convey
deep down tell me
what you been through
beneath the surface whats haunting you?
use that as motivation
sit down & write
the truth hurts more
then a damn fist fight

You Crave the sympathy
you want it all for free
it’s just too much lately
through the roof
through the roof
you want all eyes on you
if they only knew
what you really do
through the roof
through the roof

you walk into the room
like you own the place
a inner pageant queen
without the pretty face
you can’t get in for free
wheres your money man?
you say your broke
with a beer in your hand
like a sociopath
you feel no guilt
you destroy all the friendships
that you built
you don’t appreciate
what we do for you
you had your chance
we’re fuckin done with you

You Crave the sympathy
you want it all for free
it’s just too much lately
through the roof
through the roof
you want all eyes on you
if they only knew
what you really do
through the roof
through the roof
Track Name: Time Machine
If I had the power
I would go back
darling in a heart beat
relive those moments
when you were still here
those glory days on replete
theres nothing I could have done
were all doomed one day
theres no cure I’m afraid to say
those emotions we bottle up
we wanna appear so tough
in the end we all go..
the same way

I would pack my bags & run to you
if I had a time machine
theres nothing in the world I’d rather do
if I had a time machine


The months are drifting now
everyones carries on
like nothing changed at all
I feel so empty inside
part of me died
& I’m just staring at the wall

I would pack my bags & run to you
if I had a time machine
theres nothing in the world I’d rather do
if I had a time machine

I would pack my bags & run to you
if I had a time machine
theres nothing in the world I’d rather do
if I had a time machine
