Track Name: Come on In
It's been a while since I felt that kind of Low point
It's not that I haven't done wrong I just haven't felt it In a bit
Maybe I'm being over dramatic
Maybe I have to much to say

Regardless Of fact will stay in tact
Marking down places, familiar faces I'm figuring out how to get around
Lately I've been caught up in things to do
Playing backyards and seeing bands in basements too

Hey hello how has your day been?
I haven't seen you in a while, come on in
Talk to me how has it been being alone
It gets better I promise, just hold on to hope

Don't worry about the dirty rugs I nailed them to the floor
The windows don't open but I've made myself a home
This is what I've made out of myself
One day I want to hear all about what you made out of yourself

Hey hello how has your day been?
I haven't seen you in a while, come on in
Talk to me how has it been being alone
It gets better I promise, just hold on to hope

All those fears of making promises, Bad blood with former bosses
Everything will fade and get old
Life won't be this forever, it'll get a lot better
It gets better I promise, just hold on to hope

Hey hello how has your day been?
I haven't seen you in a while, come on in
Talk to me how has it been being alone
It gets better I promise, just hold on to hope
It gets better I promise, just hold on to hope
It gets better I promise, just hold on to hope
It gets better I promise, just hold on to hope

Track Name: Setbacks
Raindrops on the windshield
You came right out of left field
It's dark in the backseat, I might as well sleep
I drift off to the sound of snide blasting ween

You don't know, why I act the way I do
And I don't think that matters much, it's got nothing to do with you
But I think I've been shaped by my own mistakes
If there's one thing I'm sure of, it's that I'm allowed to cry

I'm just a kid from a town south of Boston
My town is a home to alcohol and heroin
But I'll never talk a sip or stick a needle in my arm
I don't have much to say and I think I've said it all

And I've got enough to problems as it is
I don't need another thing to add to the list
Of setbacks, disappointments, cancer or dope
That's why I keep running and hold onto hope

And I'm not sure what I mean
But damn Rockland is my home despite the novelty
I'll never give up on it since I met Brian on the tracks
2013 was the start of all that


I'm just a kid from a town south of Boston
My town is a home to alcohol and heroin
But I'll never talk a sip or stick a needle in my arm
I don't have much to say and I think I've said it all

Track Name: Down The Line
You sold yourself to a fox all those years ago
You become so nomadic, you can't seem to find a home
Everything is Okay and things will find a place
Lift me up until I'm dead and in a higher space

I'm not self-conscious and I'm just cautious as my mother
And I may be getting old but I'm not as bold as my brother
Values will be the death of everything you know
Nothing really matters when your getting ready to go down the line

I was shaking like a leaf on a tree
Wishing things were how they used to be
And I find it a bit ironic
That it seems so hard to find you iconic

Come with me down the road
We're the summer is hot and the winters to cold
Shut the door in my sweaty beating face
My demons lurk, do my dirty work. Let me see your face

I was oblivious and crude
To this sensitive ruse
Why was I dealt this hand?
was I just ment to not understand?
Do think you think this is a game?
Is it just me or are we both to blames
Even when It won't show this doesn't feel the best
I wish knew how to fix this mess
Track Name: Daytime
Spray paint the walls
I couldn't count them all
Nostalgia in the corner of the room

Walking down Summer Street
Weary on my feet
I'll carry this skateboard till I can catch my breath to ride it

So I skate down to the wharf
Just to skate back down to South Station
The wind is cold but the sun still makes me sweat

I'll meet up with you in the Commons
We can get ice cream and catch some sun
This day won't last forever but I cant think of a day when My memories won't

This clay brick road is different than the rest
Sure it's bustling with people but none of theme I've ever met
Today is ending quickly but it felt like a lifetime

Cambridge in the daytime
We missed our buddies set time
But we met up with them just to hang around

Julia's new haircut looks nice
So do Amanda's purple highlights
Not to be rude but the headliner, sucked

I'll meet up with you in the Commons
We can get ice cream and catch some sun
This day won't last forever but I cant think of a day when My memories won't

Cracked brick wall, murals in the stairway
Downstairs Mideast, wherever we go we can have It out way
Well paid busking trips, I'll wait for the moon to eclipse the sun
Because another day in town isn't the same for everyone

I'll meet up with you in the Commons
We can get ice cream and catch some sun
This day won't last forever but I cant think of a day when My memories won't

I'll meet up with you in the Commons
We can get ice cream and catch some sun
This day won't last forever but I cant think of a day when My memories won't

Track Name: How to Draw Anything
I jumped into my fear
I overcame a burden of mine today
I hurled myself, into the ocean
I almost stopped myself but I continued the motion

Falling into the dark
Were I couldn't see a thing
Blinded by ambitious thoughts
Till I couldn't see a fucking thing

You never haven't tried to make a pace
Always pulsing through the town trying to find your place
You never haven't tried to make a pace
Always pulsing through the town trying to find your place

I Put my head into the ocean right after you did
We stoped up on the rocks and the tide was coming in
My shoes and socks were soaked with salt
The sand and sea made me feel at home

The sunset was bright as your favorite ideas
I couldn't feel this good if I wasn't sitting right here
Most things on this earth aren't built to last
One day this will all shatter and collapse Ike glass

You never haven't tried to make a pace
Always pulsing through the town trying to find your place
You never haven't tried to make a pace
Always pulsing through the town trying to find your place

The sunset was bright as your favorite ideas
I couldn't feel this good if I wasn't sitting right here
Most things on this earth aren't built to last
One day this will all shatter and collapse Ike glass


You never haven't tried to make a pace
Always pulsing through the town trying to find your place
You never haven't tried to make a pace
Always pulsing through the town trying to find your place

Track Name: <3
The best things in life you really cannot hold
Like lending a hand or empathy, surely you don't suppose
That I don't need to be rich when I'm emotionally wealthy
Even I when I'm afraid I won't wake up I hold onto hope

I'm awake and my heart is beating
If I was a rocket I'd be through the ceiling by now
My life has purpose and meaning
And I wouldn't trade it for anything
I'm awake and my heart is beating
If I was a rocket I'd be through the ceiling by now
My life has purpose and meaning
I'll keep a little hope in my pocket in case you need some to,
I love you

Because sometimes people die in there sleep
And to think for a second that, that could be me
Gives me a reason and gives me hope, to live before I'm dead, before I croak
I'm so thankful that I get to live my life

I'm awake and my heart is beating
If I was a rocket I'd be through the ceiling by now
My life has purpose and meaning
And I wouldn't trade it for anything
I'm awake and my heart is beating
If I was a rocket I'd be through the ceiling by now
My life has purpose and meaning
I'll keep a little hope in my pocket in case you need some to,
I love you

So if Beauty is in eyes of the beholder
Then I think what I'm beholding would be pretty hard to leave
The way I think Is enough to keep me breathing, alive and eating.
But it also sometimes doesn't even let me sleep

I'm awake and my heart is beating
If I was a rocket I'd be through the ceiling by now
My life has purpose and meaning
And I wouldn't trade it for anything
I'm awake and my heart is beating
If I was a rocket I'd be through the ceiling by now
My life has purpose and meaning
I'll keep a little hope in my pocket in case you need some to,
I love you

Stone cold benches behind the train, I'm glad that I got caught in the rain
The dye is running down my shirt and you'd think things couldn't really get much worse
Stone cold benches behind the train, I'm glad that I got caught in the rain
The dye is running down my shirt and you'd think things couldn't really get much worse

But it's fine, I'm alright, it's all fine
But it's fine, I'm alright, it's all fine
But it's fine, I'm alright, it's all fine
But it's fine, I'm alright, it's all fine

Stone cold benches behind the train, I'm glad that I got caught in the rain
The dye is running down my shirt and you'd think things couldn't really get much worse
Stone cold benches behind the train, I'm glad that I got caught in the rain
The dye is running down my shirt and you'd think things couldn't really get much worse

I'm awake and my heart is beating
If I was a rocket I'd be through the ceiling by now
My life has purpose and meaning
And I wouldn't trade it for anything
I'm awake and my heart is beating
If I was a rocket I'd be through the ceiling by now
My life has purpose and meaning
I'll keep a little hope in my pocket in case you need some to,
I love you

i love you.
Track Name: Lungs (feat. Nathan Calcagno)
There is paint in my lungs
I can taste it more than usual
The fumes Are making my eyes itch yea

My lungs are like a metronome
I'll keep time with myself and I won't let go
Pcik at the Diamond to Pick at The Dirt
Pick at the concrete it's a part of the plan

Just like you, just like me
I tried and tried but I couldn't find peace
Just like you, just like me
I'll show you how to smile if that's what you want to see

There is something strange about pleasing a crowd
When you have something say you can't say it too loud
Nothing about that has changed not even a little

First you have to learn, that you're never gonna walk on the Sea
Every time you walk on out of the house,some things won't be the way you want them to be

Just like you, just like me
I tried and tried but I couldn't find peace
Just like you, just like me
I'll show you how to smile if that's what you want to see

Track Name: New Safe Place
I'm breathless in a good way
Let me take two steps back

It's been too cold to skateboard,
It's how I usually get around

You weren't such a wise one
Don't worry I'm the same deal

Don't forget pick up your package
I left it on the steps for you I left it there for you

And have no sympathy,
For my demons are still in bed
I Put them to sleep with some magic
I found in my new safe place, in my new safe place

Glowing by the candle light and cobwebs
A Portal to a new realm

Acrylic beauty and wooden board thoughts
Maybe one day we will finally get caught

Light from three ways, two usually work
Noise from the mechanics put me to sleep

I've been listening to your favorite songs
They can't put me to sleep even all day long

And have no sympathy,
For my demons are still in bed
I Put them to sleep with some magic
I found in my new safe place, in my new safe place

And have no sympathy,
For my demons are still in bed
I Put them to sleep with some magic
I found in my new safe place, in my new safe place
Track Name: Illuminated
Your Portraits still on my wall
it doesn't look like you at all
cluttered in stillness i drowned in change
i never take it down no matter how i re-arrange

Im still Illuminated by the lights that we left on
in your bedroom,in my bedroom, were i write the fear away
Im here to stay alone, to lie to myself, to lie to my own
I wont pretend i care ill just prove, prove that im alive

Laying down my feet seem so fa away
Perspective is everything, at least thats what i say
Lately ive been getting practice crying and i honestly have no idea why
maybe im just too emotional, all i really know is that i love my life and i dont wanna die

Im still Illuminated by the lights that we left on
in your bedroom,in my bedroom, were i write the fear away
Im here to stay alone, to lie to myself, to lie to my own
I wont pretend i care ill just prove, prove that im alive

Have you ever walked outside when you shouldn't?
From Highland to Market to Central to Union?
I marked it all down as i crossed the Border of The Town
Have you finished taking note of the cold wet ground just yet?

Fear Was Stronger Then Passion
The Stakes Were higher then any of us could've imagined
When Push came to pull we ran x2

Im still Illuminated by the lights that we left on
in your bedroom,in my bedroom, were i write the fear away
Im here to stay alone, to lie to myself, to lie to my own
I wont pretend i care ill just prove, prove that im alive
Track Name: Jatsun Aranna (feat. Amanda McCarthy)
We tracked mud into the house
I just cleaned
It's OK there is still burns on the floor
From when josh threw that big party, when mom was away

I only work to live
I refuse to live to work
I may be pushing carriages
But at least that's not my passion
I don't work for the future
I let it happen to me
I don't try to change what hasn't happened
Because that would probably change me

We tracked mud into the basement
It's OK I'm the only one there to care
I just laid down some carpet I nailed it to the floor
Just because I got it for free doesn't mean to me it's not worth more

I only work to live
I refuse to live to work
I may be pushing carriages
But at least that's not my passion
I don't work for the future
I let it happen to me
I don't try to change what hasn't happened
Because that would probably change me

we tracked mud into the attic
It Always really hot up here but I take a look at you and I see
I see something different, we've got something different
And just because I didn't pay for this does that mean it's not worth it

I only work to live
I refuse to live to work
I may be pushing carriages
But at least that's not my passion
I don't work for the future
I let it happen to me
I don't try to change what hasn't happened
Because that would probably change me

we tracked mud into my car
hit the road driving 5 hours west
ill be home monday with less money than before
im up at four in the morning, just so i can do it all again

I only work to live
I refuse to live to work
I may be pushing carriages
But at least that's not my passion
I don't work for the future
I let it happen to me
I don't try to change what hasn't happened
Because that would probably change me

This is worth my life and 10 an hour is not
I will live to be happy, I will not live to be wealthy
My dream is worth my life, 10 an hour is not
I will live to make others happy , I will not live to make money

I only work to live
I refuse to live to work
I may be pushing carriages
But at least that's not my passion
I don't work for the future
I let it happen to me
I don't try to change what hasn't happened
Because that would probably change me

Track Name: Solemn Circle
Tall black hat, rumors behind your back
They talk soft enough you can hear

The telling of an age, they think you're knowledge is underage
But all you've ever tried to do is find your way

But they don't know
That you don't care
But they do know
That your right
But they don't know
That you don't care
But they do know
That your right

Your life has never been, cobblestone roads, or green toads
It's been just like there's you gotta go in 9-5

But what's different is when you get home you turn off the light
And feel happy and misunderstood and safe thru the night

But they don't know
That you don't care
But they do know
That your right
But they don't know
That you don't care
But they do know
That your right

You Draw the circle on the floor, nobody can touch you anymore
The dirt floor you call home is the only thing that doesn't leave you sore
A healing life full of hurt, shelves of book were you exert
All the free time that you can scrounge

But they don't know
That you don't care
But they do know
That your right
But they don't know
That you don't care
But they do know
That your right

Starry nights, midday plights
Your walking home from an early night
It's gonna be a full moon
You know just what to do, tonight is for you

But they don't know
That you don't care
But they do know
That your right
But they don't know
That you don't care
But they do know
That your right

Track Name: Disappoint.
I'm not a disappointment
Its just sometimes i disappoint
When I try to make my point
People seem to miss the point every time

Don't say I have an issue
I know I do, I have a few
I'm dealing with it all, you know it's true
You may not understand but let me think you do

I'm not crazy I just have a knack
For choosing the choices that put me right back
To where I want to be, were I'm happy
I hope I didn't disappoint again

So I just quit my job
And I kind of smell like shit
I failed my first license test
And I straight up feel sick

So if you'rewondering what I'm thinking but don't know how to ask
ill just tell you the past is in the past
I don't think that I'm special but I do think that I'm different
Because I'm a mess and I try my best and I hold to hope I have too much to say, to say
I have to much to say

Track Name: Move Ahead
You could get as high as you were low
This can go as far as you want it to go
I know this is strange and out of the blue
But I don't need change as much as I need you.

Laying in the rocks staring at the floor
Watching, do I have to take this anymore?

I'm trying my best to move ahead
Just let me atleast dream that I am not in bed.

You could get as high as you were low
This can go as far as you want it to go
I know this is strange and out of the blue
But I don't need change as much as I need you.

I'm trying my best to move ahead
Just let me atleast dream of the words you've said

Just give me a sign, Mark in the sand
That this time it's different and it's okay to land

You could get as high as you were low
This can go as far as you want it to go
I know this is strange and out of the blue
But I don't need change as much as I need you.

I don't need change as much as I need you
I don't need change as much as I need you
I don't need change as much as I need you
I don't need change as much as I need you
I don't need change as much as I need you
I don't need change as much as I need you
I don't need change as much as I need you
I don't need change as much as I need you

Track Name: These Boots Are Getting Heavy but i'm getting used to Walking with the Weight
I feel like a ghost,Pacing down your driveway
The street you live on never looked so god damn compelling
I still have the wifi in the front yard as I stop
The sidewalk won't let me go, the air won't let me talk

Because nothing really ever has a message like the one your self receive
And Everytime I think of this I wanna fucking leave
But my feet are glued together to this side walk below
im not sure when i got here but its definitely time to go

Mediums across the bored could never represent
The way I feel or I how I act or or the way that I resent
The opinions that I have for no reason at all
Sometimes there is just no way to recall

Because nothing really ever has a message like the one your self receive
And Everytime I think of this I wanna fucking leave
But my feet are glued together to this side walk below
im not sure when i got here but its definitely time to go

Now Could you Imagine If things were the way they were last December
have you even realized? could you find the time to remember?
think back real hard, its only been a few months past
behind me are only memory's and in front of me, my life that could never last

Because nothing really ever has a message like the one your self receive
And Everytime I think of this I wanna fucking leave
But my feet are glued together to this side walk below
im not sure when i got here but its definitely time to go

im not sure when i got here but its definitely time to go
im not sure when i got here but its definitely time to go
im not sure when i got here but its definitely time to go
