Track Name: City
Know there's a ticket with my name on it
Know there's a plane leaving any minute
Know there's a past that is full of fear
This ain't a chance that I can forfeit

Spend a lotta time thinking about the situation I'm in
Get it once in every while but I never really make sense of it
Should've ink the lyric down, like the figure 8 on my wrist
One day I'll figure it out then drill it into my head

Moving on
Manning up
Man enough?
Moving on

Spent 2 years cleaning up the mess that I made
Still don't believe but ill take the leap anyway
I feel the nerves swirl around my body
Take all I learned and hit the ground running

Moving on
Manning up
Man enough?
Moving on

City x4

Know there's a ticket with my name on it
Know there's a plane leaving any minute
Know there's a past that is full of fear
This ain't a chance that I can forfeit

Moving on
Manning up
Man enough?
Moving on
Track Name: Boy
This is all I can do now

You are lookin' at a boy, that doesn’t know who he is
And you are lookin' at a boy, that nearly lost it all
You are lookin' at a boy, that can’t recall where he
came from
And you are lookin' at a boy, that’s barely holdin' on

This is all I can do now

Encapsulated in disease, and standing here on his own
Was violated by a screen, that reads it can’t be done
Captivated by nothing, inspiring lives surely bring me
down
Was motivated by a dream, but it’s on the verge of
dying now

This is all I can do now - You are looking at a boy
Track Name: Accelerate
Forget the end
For it will eat you again
Dwell in the gift
Keep telling yourself it
Repeat it like a fucking mantra

Accelerate x4

Drop the doubt
Jump the wall
Break your own fall
Accelerate

Accelerate x4

I don't want it to come
This is all that I know
Every lane that I find
Will surely lead to sorrow

Yeah x4

Accelerate x4

Yesterday has come x2
Track Name: I Need Love
Float away from my problems every night
In hand an orange Bic lighter and a water filled pipe
For a moment I am blind from all the problems in my life

Trying to deny that theres is something wrong with me
Collateral damage at the top of my anatomy
Sip a little science and it carries all my shit away

Sit down and sing a sad song
Feel the tears trickle down
The skin on my skeleton

I need love, soon

Seams of the laughter's vanished with a cloud of smoke
I Look into the glass at a man that I used to know
Stabbed him In the back as this habit has grown out of control

I heat up a scented candle and settle into a lucid dream
A dream where I am fallin' and falling for an eternity
I hear a single voice it's circling round like a bird of prey

Scream at the top of my lungs
I yearn that it was
Someone else's reality

I need love, soon

Life can be hard when you lose your mind
Even harder when you give away your friend
Now I lay here over analysing everything
Oh It's cold, cold, cold in this bed of mine
Track Name: Hold My Hand, Brother
Humming to the beat of the ocean it's taken me closer
Open water, waves and sky scrapers making me homesick
Inbetween the city and sea feeling vunerable
Oh I'm gunning for a point in the distance acting on instinct

See it written in the sky and in the distant light
In the middle of a wild, unforgettable night
Look to the captain for a sign take to the limit
Into the city toward the tower lit up like a fire

Hold my hand brother don't let it go
Weather this storm I can't do it alone
Pull me back I'm I man overboard
Hold my hand brother don't let it go

Waiting in the wings of an eagle he's leading me closer
Listen to his call like religion believe in his notion
Following the fleet to freedom, this is the moment
Momentum is the greatest of friends defend its like it an infant

See it written in the sky and in the distant light
In the middle of a wild, unforgettable night
Look to the captain for a sign take to the limit
Into the city toward the tower lit up like a fire

Hold my hand brother don't let it go
Weather this storm I can't do it alone
Pull me back I'm I man overboard
Hold my hand brother don't let it go

Hold onto me
Don't let me go
Golden glow ahead
Track Name: Sad/Hope
t's gonna be a long while, til I find myself an oar
And my little life boats taking on water
Sink a little every hour, I'm miles upon miles from the shore

This is Sad/Hope I'm holding onto
There are no ropes that I belong to
Decided my nerves are better overboard
This is Sad/Hope

It's gonna be a strong southerly blowing me closer to the storm
My only armour is what I was born with
I'll baton down the little I own, and hone in on the hurricane that I'm gunning for

This is Sad/Hope that I'm holding onto
There are no ropes that I belong to
Decided my nerves are better overboard
This is Sad/Hope

I'm ready now
Go on and throw me your worst
I can take it all
In my stride

This is Sad/Hope I'm holding onto
There are no ropes that I belong to
Decided my nerves are better overboard
This is Sad/Hope
Track Name: Hallelujah
I lift your dress, up over your head
And lay you down, down onto the bed
Then kiss your neck and listen to you breathe
I sense the heat, I know just what you need
Oh its building

Hallelujah
I hardly know ya
But I can't ignore that
I'm fallin' for ya

Oh you let me in, we're moving in unison
You scratch so hard it hurts, but I don't even care
This room is spinning wild, but I feel in control
We are down to the wire now, all else just falls

Oh can you feel it now

Hallelujah
I hardly know ya
But I can't ignore that
I'm fallin' for ya

The room is light, your head is on my chest
Our clothes are everywhere, your sleeping is all I hear
My memory has faded, but I know that we made it
Spend the day in bed, getting acquainted

Oh this is the happiest moment that I can recall x 4
