Track Name: Choke Artist
I can hear you grinding your teeth down to the gum
Squeezing tight, your fingers, they must be numb
This isn't about you
It's about who you thought I would be

I can feel your heartbeat
I can feel it from a mile away

It drives you crazy that I'm getting up again
Standing taller after each time I fall
You Can't change me
I'm never breaking down
I know who I am and this is where I belong

Guess what, I'm not going anywhere
I'm staying just to watch you fold
When you find yourself face down in the dirt tell me
Well how does it taste?
How does this taste?

It drives you crazy that I'm getting up again
Standing taller after each time I fall
You Can't change me
I'm never breaking down
I know who I am and this is where I belong

It drives you crazy that I'm getting up again
Standing taller after each time I fall
You Can't change me
I'm never breaking down
I know who I am and this is where I belong

I can feel your heartbeat
I can feel it from a mile away
I may have fallen more times than you
But you're a coward you know it's the truth

I may have fallen more times than you
But you're a coward you know it's the truth
I may have fallen more times than you
But you're a coward you know it's the truth

It drives you crazy that I'm getting up again
Standing taller after each time I fall
You Can't change me
I'm never breaking down
I know who I am and this is where I belong

It drives you crazy that I'm getting up again
Standing taller after each time I fall
You Can't change me
I'm never breaking down
I know who I am and this is where I belong
Track Name: Winners Always Quit
I can't fight this I gotta get away
Nothing changes when I close my eyes
I can't keep on living this way
And If I see your face again
I hope I can stay away from you
Please just go away

She's so good
At making me shake the way
she takes my breath away
I can feel her coursing through my veins

I'm giving up
just not the way that you think
I'm sick of lying always tired never getting sleep
I think I'm loosing my mind
I'm gonna be fine

Hey! Hey! Hey!
I'm gonna be fine
Hey! Hey! Hey!
I'm gonna be, I wanna be fine

Let go we're breathing deep
These monsters never sleep (they never sleep)
They take away everything (take away)
You could ever be

If you ever leave promise you'll never leave
I could stay in this place forever with you (with you)
Just tell me you need this too

I'm giving up
just not the way that you think
I'm sick of lying always tired never getting sleep
I think I'm loosing my mind
I'm gonna be fine

Hey! Hey! Hey!
I'm gonna be fine
Hey! Hey! Hey!
I'm gonna be, I wanna be fine

From all the memories we made
From all the memories we made
As the flames rise high
I set a fire with your name

I'm giving up
just not the way that you think
I think I'm loosing my mind
I'm gonna be fine

I'm giving up
just not the way that you think
I'm sick of lying always tired never getting sleep
I think I'm loosing my mind
I'm gonna be fine

Hey! Hey! Hey!
I'm gonna be fine
Hey! Hey! Hey!
I'm gonna be, I wanna be fine
Track Name: Remember When
I've given up
I just can't take it anymore
This empty room is killing me
When you're walking out that door

I used to think
Things would be okay
I simple smile meant
You'd wanna stay

But I was wrong
and I know I need you here
Stay a little bit longer
Don't disappear

Don't disappear

This is my only regret
I left my heart with you
Did this to myself
I've come unglued
Now time is my only true friend
Told myself "I won't do this again"
Keep swimming and staying afloat with me

Now I'm breathing on my own

Remember when
We would stare for days
and talk about the life we would make
Nothing seemed to get in the way
Remember when
we would just hold hands
and everything we did always made sense
the hardest part about life is paying rent

I can't let you go
I'm just afraid of moving on
I can't let you go

Was it wrong? was it right?
I took a chance and let you go
Now I'm paying the price
How could I have known?

This is my only regret
I left my heart with you
Did this to myself
I've come unglued
Now time is my only true friend
Told myself "I won't do this again"
Keep swimming and staying afloat with me

How could I have known?
I can't let you go

This is my only regret
I left my heart with you
Did this to myself
I've come unglued
Now time is my only true friend
Told myself "I won't do this again"
Keep swimming and staying afloat with me
Track Name: Against the Ropes
Wake up, Wake up,
I see the enemy
Get up, Get up
No time for apathy
We can't fight if our arms are tied down
By the ones who think that they know how
Look around and see the flames extinguished
By their lies
We're dying slowly without knowing how

Stand up and be the one
Be the one
Wake up and feel the sun

Run, don't run, don't run away
We won't live to fight another day
All I know is this is all we have
All we have
We'll stand, we'll fall, we'll carry the call
Pour the hope inside us all
Living for the truth that sets us free

I'll hold you up
I won't let you go
Don't give up
Don't let the world steal you soul

So light the fires and light the sky
We'll watch the flames as they rise high
As they rise know this (know this)
We won't go away

We are all we hope to be
let go and
let your life be free
designed for more than this
we'll set the world free

we are all we hope to be
we are all we hope to be

So light the fires and light the sky
We'll watch the flames as they rise high (we are all we hope to be)
As they rise know this
We won't go away(we are all we hope to be)

We won't go away
We won't go away
Track Name: Letters (From a Hopeful Romantic)
Every time you told me lies
It reminded me of the moonlight
When I look back did we really try but
It doesn't matter no more, It doesn't matter no more

If we try to analyze what hides behind your hazel eyes
Maybe we'll find just what we've been looking for
Maybe we'll find just what we've been looking for

If we were young then
What are we doing here?
We shouldn't be here again
Wasting this life taking our time
I think it's time to go

It was never right
I should have never gambled
With your heart on line
I think I really messed up this time

This is me looking at back at you
And all the things that make this right
I will never forget the night of our last fight
'Cause I found me and it's not with you
It pains me to say this truth
Together we fall
Together we fall apart
The worst of me's when I'm with you

It was never right
I should have never gambled
With your heart on line
I think I really messed up this time

If we were young then
What are we doing here?
We shouldn't be here again
Wasting this life taking our time
I think it's time to go

If we were young then
What are we doing here?
We shouldn't be here again
Wasting this life taking our time
I think it's time to go

What I'm sayin'
Not gonna stand here to watch you drown
I'm gonna plant my feet on solid ground (you think I wanted this?)
So why you're choking
I'll stand here broken
Sorry to say it's time to go
Track Name: The Villain
I know what makes me free
and I know what fractures me
I never want to be the hope of
Everything that you can't see
I'm giving all I can
Some twisted form of Superman
Instead of flying high above it all
I'm dying in the mud that
Caught my fall

You say stand taller and I can do this by myself
But lately I'm falling, can't get up I'm barely crawling

And don't let go
I won't be afraid
To hold you close and not push away
All the hopes and dreams of life I had
This heart of a broken man

I push through, I always push through
There isn't any other way
On down this one way road and you (we push through, we always push through)
I'll see you another day

Don't rely on me
'cause all I am is me

You say stand taller and I can do this by myself
But lately I'm falling, can't get up I'm barely crawling

And don't let go
I won't be afraid
To hold you close and not push away
All the hopes and dreams of life I had
This heart of a broken man

Just walk away
Walk away
I tear my heart in every way
Just to hear you say
Don't need your sympathy
It come to this
All I am is me

You say stand taller and I can do this by myself
But lately I'm falling, can't get up I'm barely crawling

And Don't let go
I won't be afraid
To hold you close and not push away
All the hopes and dreams of life I had
This heart of a broken man
Track Name: Bandits
Killing me the way you walk around
Can't be shown in order to be found
Your life starts with you
The game is up

It's great to know
You're thinking for yourself
If it's effortless then
Your bragging rights are dead to me

Post it up, hit it up
Claim you short time ticket to fame
But one day they'll ask what and who you are
Who are you?

It's pathetic that you said it
but now that you get it
I know you regret it
I'm never changing my mind
You can hold out hope
We're on another road
Out of town

Killing me the way you walk around
Can't be shown in order to be found
Your life starts with you
The game is up

We stand we fight we are alive
We hope we bleed from the inside

Don't feel alone we'll make a moment from this
Hold tight and don't let go
We only have this time to pass us by

Can't let these day go by
Don't walk away from me
I'm never backing down

Killing me the way you walk around
Can't be shown in order to be found
Your life starts with you
The game is up

You're playing games
I don't have the time
To listen to all of the things that you're crying about
Save me from all these pointless debates
It starts with you
