Track Name: It's A Shame
Verse 1:
You think your life is full of thunder
You’re gonna see it all go under
And everyday you’re gonna wonder
What it’s like now with the other...yea.

Throw it away
Why don’t you run away
You’re such a Goddamn shame
And I don’t take you’re blame
You’re such a Goddamn shame
You’re such a Goddamn shame

Verse 2:
And you just might think I’m the sucka
You’re very wrong there, mothafucka
From here on out I’ll never trust ya
So just lay back and get your karma...yea.
Track Name: Don't Feel
Verse 1:
I get up, but somethin’ always brings me down
Is it love that finds a way to make me frown?
Fill the cup half empty as it turns me around
Rise above; but nothing seems to make a sound

Verse 2:
It’s been rough to find a way to see me now
Had enough; I want a way out of this town
Just shut up! Inside my head is just too loud
I give up; ‘cause all that follows is this cloud.

And it’s the same ole thing that makes me lose control
So I don’t care about anything anymore
And it’s the same ole thing that shows me to the door
I don’t feel anything ‘cause life is such a bore

Another day that I’m not dead
Wake up you sleepy head
Maybe I’ll flip a coin; well I don’t care so what’s the point
Another day that I’m not dead
Why get out of this bed
Maybe I’ll flip a coin; well I don’t feel so what’s the point
Track Name: Breathe
Verse 1:
Lonely nights I spend just visualizing me on my own
Spending every single day and night trapped in your hole
Someone help me ‘cause my mind is blind and out of control
Everyone around me sympathizing ‘cause they all know
This isn’t where I wanted this to go
Don’t wanna run around in circles no more
This fantasy of mine has hit the floor
It’s strangling my peace of mind

Verse 2:
For so long I was a prisoner of my own grief
Thinking if I could just save the world, it’d bring me relief
Didn’t realize ‘til recently, I wasn’t complete
Couldn’t move ahead ‘til I decided to admit defeat
It’s never what you think it’s gonna be
Can’t spend my life just seeing what I wanna see
‘Cause there’s a life out there for you that’s meant to be
Give up your fear and just believe

If you see the outside, you will be free
If you let yourself go, then you can breathe
If you let your past die, then you will see
Everything is alright and I can be me
