Perilous 02:22
Taking tippie toes feeling perilous Wearing shiny shoes cuz I’m powerless Never ever knew it would come to this I’m at the end of my wits and now I’m gonna quit When there’s no where safe to go When there’s no where else to be I can crawl inside me hole Overdosing on my sleep Is there anything you need? Let the music set you free Times I find it hard to breathe I wonder if it’s only me When there’s no where safe to go When there’s no where else to be I can crawl inside me hole Overdosing on my sleep Is there anything you need? Let the music set you free Times I find it hard to breathe I wonder if it’s only me

Never gonna run away again Never gonna be the same again I got a past that I’ve been trying to escape If I could go back I think I’d change how I was made I stay consistent I can count on my mistakes Now there’s no easy way out Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh I would never learn my place Can they see that I’m a fake? I’m not down for it, I’ve lost the thrill of chase Now there’s no easy way out Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Brain 01:54
Getting by and I ain’t got no time for feeling Life’s a pipe and busy days have got me reeling I need some energy to keep me on the beam But I ain’t going nowhere and the cycle doesn’t change Getting high is not an option for escape Fears a phantom friend that won’t get out my face I’m running out of money and I’m tired of the hunting But wishing isn’t working so I think I’m gonna quit Can I manifest some meaning? Whoa whoa And maybe make a lot of money Whoa whoa My mama said it wasn’t easy Whoa Whoa But she isn’t really helping Still I’m running but it seems I’ve hit the ceiling Bust my skull and now I’m feeling so defeated Failure is familiar and every day I eat it Cutting my teeth fueled by low self esteem Running running running running Chasing nothing No amount of power could ever be enough man Nothing gets accomplished and I’m so unproductive Can’t I just be happy where I’m at? Can I manifest some meaning? Whoa whoa And maybe make a lot of money Whoa whoa My mama said it wasn’t easy Whoa Whoa But she isn’t really helping

Little Man 02:53
Little man Taller than an anthill Little man Thoughts are all to conquer Little man You live a little life alone Little man Wanna live forever Little man Decide to be a father Little man As small as anything you know Want the world to be your way And everyone to fall in place Little man Wanna have his own land Little man Wanna be his own man Little man You win a little life alone Little man Shrinking as the days end Little man No animal is chasing Little man As small as everything he knows Want the world to be your way And everyone to fall in place Little man lost in space Where there’s your will there’s no way Whoa oh oh oh oh Whoa oh oh oh oh Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh Want the world to be your way And everyone to fall in place Little man lost in space Where there’s your will there’s no way Whoa oh oh oh oh Whoa oh oh oh oh Whoa oh oh oh oh oh oh

You already lost the game With your neighbor to blame Cuz it’s easy to look away And to say we’re not the same It’s the 80 20 The numbers never change Oh by now we’ve natured and nurtured our fate As we enter decay In the latter stage Oh by now we’ve natured and nurtured our fate Bad operation unsubscribe Bad motivation in my mind Bad operation unsubscribe Bad motivation in my mind Some wait some go Some just complain Some try to make their own change We make waste and war Forgetting the poor A birthright to go get what’s yours It’s the 80 20 The numbers never change Oh by now we’ve natured and nurtured our fate As we enter decay In the latter stage Oh by now we’ve natured and nurtured our fate Bad operation unsubscribe Bad motivation in my mind Bad operation unsubscribe Bad motivation in my mind Ohhhhh ohhhh Ohhhhh ohhhhh Ohhhhhh ohhhhhhh Ohhhhh

Siren's Call 03:05
Early morning dark and stormy I can hear the sirens call me My body wants to warn me And my body’s busy worrying The change left a stain When she flew away Had to let that bird fly I don’t wanna fight I don’t think I’m gonna get to sleep to night I don’t think I’m gonna get to eat tonight Where the city lights eclipse the sky I don’t think I’m gonna get to sleep tonight Now my evil is arrested But my sirens wanna test it I could eat through up all my demons And drink through all my stresses The change left a stain When she flew away Had to let that bird fly I don’t wanna fight I don’t think I’m gonna get to sleep tonight I don’t think I’m gonna get to eat tonight Where the city lights eclipse the sky I don’t think I’m gonna get to sleep tonight

Baby in Arms 02:46
Something scary is Moving through the air Light a candle For the souls who passed Something tells me Good is coming A feeling way down deep tells me we’ll be Alright We’ll be alright Something tells me We will be alright I’ll be easy And sleep like a baby tonight Baby tonight Ohahohahooo (Mmmmmm ah) (There’s very little I can count on except going to sleep at the end of the day) (And it is so wonderful to be in bed) (The one constant for me is sleep) (And then I'll die) (Die!) Something tells me We will be alright I’ll be easy And sleep like a baby tonight I knoooooo woah oh I knoooooo woah oh Like a baby tonight

My mojo’s right where I left it In the beer bottle dregs Since I cancelled my prescription My mind has been a mess Fish out of water Flopping on the coast Made a castle of discomfort That I’m gonna make my home Knowing nothing but I wanna have it all I don’t think much of me I’m all I ever think about Ohhh ohhh I wanna have it all Ohhh ohh I’m all I ever think about Ohhh ohh I wanna have it all Ohhh ohh I’m all I ever think about Whooooo ohh ohhh oh ohhh As I try to reel it in Whooooo ohh ohhh oh ohhh Slowly sinking from the surface Seeking something from within Learning hurts me when I earned it Cuz I’m too afraid to fail Fish out of water Flopping on the coast Made a castle of discomfort That I’m gonna make my home Knowing nothing but I wanna have it all I don’t think much of me I’m all I ever think about Ohhh ohhh I wanna have it all Ohhh ohh I’m all I ever think about Ohhh ohh I wanna have it all Ohhh ohh I’m all I ever think about Whooooo ohh ohhh oh ohhh Whooooo ohh ohhh oh ohhh My mojo’s right where I left it In the beer bottle dregs Since I cancelled my prescription I’ve been happier with less
