Track Name: Better Days
I'm six feet under
and trying to pull myself from
all this rubble
but it looks like I need help cause
everything that's brought me to this point will ultimately be
just another fake excuse of how I came to be

another broken kid, who's always lost, looking for some better days
i'm sinking in, and it's because the hate i've kept behind my face
i'm sick of holding on to every single thing that i've done wrong
I'll let it go as soon as all the shame is dead and gone

So I'm thinking that it's just another obstacle, a road block in my way.
A trial life has dropped on me, I'm sure it's here to stay.
This gift that I cannot return is the devil in my veins,
But I'm not giving up on this
Even if you've given up on me
Track Name: Beacon
I’ll wipe the sleep from my eyes.
If only for tonight, I’ll make this right.
At least I’ll make this right.

You know I’m standing on my own two feet again
After all the shit that life has thrown me in.
Through broken bones, and shattered glass,
You know I’ll find my way back
To the front porch where I sat
When all the lights went out to black,
But things have changed.
I’ve cleared my ways
Of all the things that held me back.

I’ll wipe the sleep from my eyes.
If only for tonight, I’ll make this right.
At least I’ll make this right.
So leave your pain at the door,
And your heartache on the floor,
And fight for more.
We all deserve so much more.

So let go of all the things that
Have grown on you from the
Past mistakes you’ve made,
And all the problems that you’ve faced.
And one day you won’t have to
Save face, cause you’ll be able
To take what life has thrown at you.
You’re strong enough to make it through.
Track Name: Chris Cole Killin' It
I lay awake at night
And watch the fan spin over my head
It's never given peace of mind
I still don't know how this life of mine should end
I just need a hint
A clue to point me down the right road
I'm tired of this shit
I'm sick of feeling like I'm all alone
And 30 minutes pass
The fan blades keep on spinning on
I close my eyes at last
As I write the words to every song I own

So keep your head up, kid
You're not alone anymore
I swear we'll find something to even out the score
So keep your head up, kid
Were not alone anymore

I'm losing sight of me
And all the traits that defined who I am
It's something that I need
To validate all of the words that I have said
I've been getting worse
I feel like I've aged years these past few months
And it fucking hurts
To think that I won't ever be enough
So 3 hours pass
the fan blades keep on spinning on
And the tears dry out at last
As I sing the words to every song i own


We're not the broken
Were the kids that have been bent and bruised
Our words won't go unspoken
Were tired of being shot down and used
We're not the broken
Were the kids that have been bent and bruised
Our words won't go unspoken
Cause this time we won't be refused
Track Name: Nostalgia 101
I'm a mess. It's not as easy as it seems to
Keep a smile when surrounded by broken dreams:
Memories of the way things used to be,
Teenage thoughts of everything perfectly in sync.

I'm holding on to the way things used to be.
We were kings as we raced through city streets.
Broken hearts, and everything in between,
Old Friendships, and memories left with me.

I remember hanging out with best friends.
Everything was so perfect,
And we'd sing in harmony not caring for
Responsibilities

I'm holding on to the way things used to be.
Track Name: Looking Glass
Wednesday rolls around, and self doubt still haunts my mind.
I can't help but feel I'm running out of time to try and get ahead.
I'll admit dark shit still runs through my head.
I'd be a liar if I said I'm alright.

But the fact that there's a tomorrow
Is something always worth waking up for.
It's another chance to forget how I felt the week before.
Shaky hands always seem to do more bad than good,
And everything that's brought me to this point will be
Buried in to my past.

I fall in to a trench with a crater that I hold deep in my chest,
And failure comes in when I try to clean the wound.
And then the laceration just gets worse.
I'd be a fake if I chewed up my discomfort.

But I've seen better days so there will always be the next,
And even if there's clouds I can still see beauty in the rain.
With all that distress, I can be so heartless.
Dealing with bull shit was not in the memo,
And it won't take over my mood.

I'd be a liar if I said I'm alright.
I'd be a fake if I chewed up my discomfort.
with all that distress, I can be so heartless,
But dealing with bull shit was not in the memo.
