Track Name: Miles
When I’m miles away
from where I need to be
I reach out to the things
that are real to me
to find a way to crawl back into my skin again


When I’m miles away
from where I need to be
I reach out to the things
that are real to me
to try to find a way back into my skin again
Track Name: Cycles
I have been humbled by the cycle
I have been humbled by the cycle

I have been thrown down
and built back up
so many times I‘m a living dead man

I have been thrown down and built back up
so many times

We are all just strands in a web
trying to catch glory
such an elusive trait
what an elusive trait

Take me out of the picture
Take me out so I can see this right
Take me out of the picture
Its hard to see in black and white

Take me out of the picture
Take me out so I can see this right
Take me out of the picture
its hard to see in black and white

These mistakes were ment to happen
for this be right

Oh bad things have to happen
for this to work right

I am not broken yet

I am not broken
I am not broken yet (I guess I’m coming back, I guess I’m coming back)
I am not broken
I am not broken yet
I am not broken
I am not broken
I am not
Track Name: Cities
Oh My God

Its a man eat man world out there
and everyones got flesh in their teeth
its a man eat man world out there

I speak for those with out tungs
whats wrong with the common man
I speak for those with out tungs
whats wrong with the common man

I ain’t no prime example
don’t count me in, don’t count me out
I ain’t no prime example
don’t shine me in, don’t shine me out
don’t shine me out, don’t shine me out

Hello, let me introduce myself
I’m the man they’ll never know
concerned with the common wealth

I promise you
I promise you
Its common wealth,
Its common hell
Its common hell

I promise you
I promise you
its common hell
its common hell
Its common hell

I go by the word of my father and the men who stand around me,
I get my drive from the smile of my mother and the roots she plants surround me

If I was stranded on an island, deep inside my awful mind
I’d rebuild rebuild the cities, I always tried to find

I’d rebuild rebuild all the cites
I'd rebuild rebuild all the cities

From the ground up, with these two hands
From the ground up
From the ground up, with all the borders sands
From the ground up

My own civilization
Yes my own civilization
Its my own civilization

I’d rebuild rebuild all the cities
I couldn’t find
I would rebuild all the cities
I couldn’t find
Track Name: Brothers
Dear Brother
If you ever feel that you are different
or lesser, or not good enough
I promise you’ve got something more


Because I believe
that you are beautiful exactly how you are
I wouldn’t change anything for the world
that we're are up against
we are up against

I am your crutch when things go wrong
You have every reason to belong,
you belong with me
everywhere I go
I am your crutch when things go wrong
You have every reason to,
you belong with me
everywhere I go

No matter where I go
or how old we grow
You are a timeless concept
No matter where I go
how old we tend to grow
You are a timeless concept

Dear Brother I wanted you to know
I learn more from you than you, than few could teach me

Brother wanted you to know
Brother wanted you to know

Some times life rips you from the womb,
before your ripe
but then you shine forever
Some times life rips you from the womb
before your ripe
but then you shine forever

I am your crutch when things go wrong
You have every reason to belong,
you belong with me
everywhere I go
I am your crutch when things go wrong
You have every reason to belong,
you belong with me
for every

You are the best I have to offer
Track Name: Echos
Call to me
So I can hear you echoing eternally

So call to me
So my voice is still heard
Internally

Just call to me
Just call to me

Call to me
there is a resonance
I’ve lost in me

Slowly
I’ve lost it
I’ve lost it

Speak through sleep
Your light is whats guiding me

It is the echo’s
that stay and keep me warm
Its your echo’s that stay and keep me warm

Your echos that stay
and keep me warm
Your echos that stay
are always earned

And forever rest in peace
Will forever rest in me

Peace is what you’ve brought to me
so thank you for everything
But always stay beside me
because these words are everything
Your words are not needed for me to understand this
Call to me

Just call
Track Name: Strangers
I am a stranger to my self
I am a stranger to my self
nothing is stranger than the way
were placed here to me
to me

I’ve lost my way and its not coming back to me
I’ve lost my way and its not coming back to me
I’ve lost my way and its not coming back to me
I’ve lost my lost my way lost my way lost my way

This body is a vessel for an active sight
in full transit
This body is a vessel for an active sight
in full transit
These eyes don’t see the same
The images are ripped away from me

If no man is an island
then why am I out here on my own
working the light house and keeping everyone everyone away

If no mans an island
why am I out here on my own?
If no mans an island
why am I out here on my own
on my own

I’ve lost my way and its not coming back to me
I’ve lost my way and its not coming back to me
I’ve lost my way lost my ways lost its way
Cuz I’ve lost my way and its not coming back to me

This grey wont go away from me
This grey wont got away from me
from me
this grey
all this grey
his grey wont go
it wont go
this grey
it wont go
away from me
all this grey

My blood is turning black, then it retraces back
to my heart and sends me away from me
My blood is turning black, then it retraces back
to my heart and sends me away from me

I’ve lost my way and its not coming back to me
I’ve lost my way and its not coming back to me
I’ve lost my way lost my way lost my way lost my way
