Track Name: Definitions
This is what my heart has longed for, a chance to show you all what’s inside.
To let you see who we really are.
Track Name: Expectations
You were never there when I needed you, I only got excuses and the blame for it all. You left us all alone How do you fake it so well? How do you talk to me like it was me who was wrong? I hope you can’t sleep at night knowing the boys you left are stronger than before. As time goes by, I wonder why you know nothing about me. Now looking back, I’ve come to expect nothing. Nothing from you. You fucked us over far too many times and with that in mind, you mean nothing to me. Alone we grow with no hands to guide us, an empty promise and a broken heart. Alone we grow with no hands to guide us, an empty promise and a saddened mind. Alone we grow. No hands to guide us. And after all these years I know now, you’re dead to me. We’ve built this all by ourselves, no help from you.
Track Name: Tom Selleck Likes My Band
This one's for the friends I've loved and lost, a quick reminder that I love you. For the good times, and the help through the bad, I want to thank you all. You will never leave my heart. I'm coming home, to be with you. I'm coming home, to be with you tonight. Don't feel alone, like you're floating out at sea. These thoughts like monsters, tearing at your feet. I've been there, I've felt the pain of feeling alone. But I stood strong with friends by my side. I made it through, you'll make it too. Take my hand, I'll lead you home. Take my hand, I'll lead you through the dark. I'm coming home to be with you. I'm coming home, I've been gone for far too long. I don't know if I'm dreaming, if this is in my head. All I know, I'm coming home to be with you. If you fall, I'll catch you. I'm there for you. Hold me close, I'll keep you above the waves, just breathe.
Track Name: Conditions
I know this shit gets to you like it does for me, and I wish we could just run away from the pain we leave behind. You just have to look for the good things in life, trust me I know they are there. Hang on, like you'll drown if you let go. Hold on until you see the light. We all have feelings building up inside, but we can't run forever. We all have conditions to hold us down. We'll stay strong forever. Fuck man. She looks in the mirror, and sees the things that she hates looking back. Why do we only see beauty in those that we aspire to be? This gets under our skin and makes us lose our love for ourselves. We start to hate everything inside, but there is so much more to us. We all have feelings building up inside, but we can't run forever. We all have conditions. Try not to give up, because I never fucking will. I'll stay right here until the bitter fucking end. We'll fill the hearts of the empty with strength and love. Don't let this shit get to you. Hold on until you see the light.
Track Name: Tides
Come see what I have done, another failed attempt at meeting your standards. Hide behind your façade, but a mask can only hide the truth for so long until the reality is revealed. Hearts melt with shame. Fuck you, I can see the truth, you are all the same. While you live off your wealth you watch the world burn. You feed off our insecurities. People like you don’t deserve to live for the things you have done. But an eye for an eye will only leave us blind, to lose sight of the things we love. Don’t fucking waste my time with another day surrounded by martyrs and whores pulling on the strings of their puppets. So stick to your path and don’t fucking waste my time. Another day surrounded by martyrs and whores pulling on the strings of their puppets, to ensure their survival when the tide gets too high. Just sit back and watch the clock countdown to your demise. And all I want is for this to end, and I all we need is for you to let go. And all that I want is for this to end, and I all that I needed was for you to let go of me. All that we want. All that I need. Let go of me.
Track Name: Danza De Los Chupacabra
This time my head’s below the water, and I can’t find air. You left me when I needed you, you turned your back on me. I have my friends and that’s all I need, I have no time for pigs like you. Never thinking what you put us through, is there anything left in that black hole you call a heart? Fuck man, I wish I could be like you, be born with it all. But I know money doesn’t buy respect or love. You think you’re better than me, but you’re not. You think you’re better than us, but you’re not. This is who we are and this is what we stand for. We will not be held down. We will not let ourselves drown. We will float together and start a new. All we rely on is brotherhood, we can't trust anyone else. What happened to loyalty and trust? It seems so far away. We keep searching for it but we are at a loss, the nights they seem so long. This walk is getting harder, I feel so lost in greed and mistrust. This is who we are and this is what we stand for. We will not be held down, we will not drown.
This is who we are. This is what we stand for.
