about

This album is a labor of love for tracks that didn’t make it onto the debut album. We decided to go back and really give these songs their due notice. Ultimately, we proudly proffer that the efforts have resulted in a true cohesive body of work. The album noticeably starts upbeat, with naive pop and then transitions to edgy alternative rock before making the loop back on the last track. It also goes from all real instruments to embracing more electronic sounds in the production.

Track Name: Red
Na, Na, Na……Some people can’t see love but I do, everyday in you, It’s as if I drifted into dreamland. Found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Love is harsh but you’re making it easy, easy on me. Love is harsh but you’re making it easy, easy on me. My heart beats three times faster When I’m always around you, It’s true. I wonder if you feel it too Because you’re sweet, like sugar. Love is harsh but you’re making it easy, easy on me. Love is harsh but you’re making it easy, easy on me. Can I be feeling love, It’s a crazy love. Up here, down there. It’s a funky Feeling, Yeah It’s a funky feeling. It’s a crazy emotion. (x4) Na, Na, Na…. I won’t even try to compliment you cause words can’t describe you, But I’ll try anyways. So nice, so pretty, so funny Always making me smile every once in a while. Love is harsh but you’re making it easy, easy on me. Love is harsh but you’re making it easy, easy on me. Can I be feeling love, It’s a crazy love. Up here, down there, It’s a funky Feeling Yeah It’s a funky feeling. It’s a crazy emotion. (x4) Na, Na, Na…(Ad-libs)
Track Name: Cliche
All right 1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4 Don’t try to bull me, I have it by the horns Trying to play a game, when I know the score. I’m a fan of clichés so you can bite the dust As I go on my way, there’s nothing to discuss. Do you think I have time for this? For retribution, retribution. You ask for one last kiss, For retribution, retribution. I can’t lie, a love still burns inside, but you ruined it for me. Now the gates are closed, so you can never win. Now it’s a Cliché, Nothing will ever be ok (x2) You can’t say, there were no second chances. Your looks let me forgave, all your dirty dances. Tell me love is blind, and I could agree By stating you couldn’t see what you meant to me. Do you think I have time for this? For retribution, retribution. You ask for one last kiss, For retribution, retribution. I can’t lie, a love still burns inside, but you ruined it for me. Now the gates are closed, so you can never win. Now it’s a Cliché, Nothing will ever be ok (x2) Oh you’re such a cliché, a waste of space, a resenting stain, I cross my heart I hope to die,I might have to stick a needle in my eye, and why! do we go through all of this? broken emotions? a moment of bliss? I wonder if you live with no regrets as I talk I put you to the test and I make my case I try to erase the memories that have taken place and I’ll actually never forget the things you ever did. I’m done. Do you think I have time for this? For retribution, retribution. You ask for one last kiss For retribution, retribution. I can’t lie, a love still burns inside, but you ruined it for me. Now the gates are closed, so you can never win. Now it’s a Cliché, Nothing will ever be ok (x2)
Track Name: Rolling the Dice
Some nights I like to get together with my friends. Sit around by the table to tell an endless story. With monsters and might and magic, Maybe something tragic, Myth intertwines with reality Our minds capture the scene. With knights and princesses to save, Everything runs by chance Changing at a moment's glance. Rolling the dice Always fun on the board, We fly away, we fly away To the sky. Rolling the dice Always a surprise, We fly away, we fly away. Who knows why, Take up a new face hide yourself to reveal more, The words we weave down any path we choose. With monsters and might and magic, Maybe something tragic, Myth intertwines with reality Our minds capture the scene. With knights and princesses to save, Everything runs by chance Changing at a moment's glance. Rolling the dice Always fun on the board, We fly away, we fly away To the sky. Rolling the dice Always a surprise We fly away, we fly away To the sky. Sword and shield in hand, We’ll save this land or destroy it. Not always to plan regardless, It’s always enjoyment. In a world mundane We need to escape to keep sane. So we play all day night all right all right all right. We built this road, An open door, forever more. Friendships die then reborn An open door, forever more. Rolling the dice Always fun on the board, We fly away, we fly away to the sky. Rolling the dice(x2) Always a surprise, We fly away, we fly away To the sky
Track Name: New Lenses
Look up, and see the world Around you, what a lovely thing. Everything is passing us by so quickly, Even when it feels like forever. Sometimes you stop and smell the roses. Specially, when everyone is ignoring this. Such bliss, as the sun kisses the ocean. Flowers bloom, in blind devotion. Life is beautiful, just look at it all. Our world is far from perfect, But perfection isn’t fun. Life is beautiful, just look at it all. Let’s look things in new lenses. My life seems so simple, But there is a layer of complexity. On occasion, there is some good Underneath, such a rotten exterior Sometimes you stop and smell the roses. Specially, when everyone is ignoring this. Such bliss, as the sun kisses the ocean. Flowers bloom, in blind devotion. Life is beautiful, just look at it all. Our world is far from perfect, But perfection isn’t fun. Life is beautiful, just look at it all. Let’s look things in new lenses. And I am well aware there are flaws in my statements, But you can’t deny, that the world we live in is amazing. So take it all in with its ends and its openings, And maybe you’ll see The light where our shadows are cast from in the sun. Life is beautiful, just look at it all. Our world is far from perfect, But perfection isn’t fun. Life is beautiful, just look at it all. Let’s look things in new lenses. La, La, La, La, La, La, La,………….
Track Name: Acceptance
We used to laugh, well we tried. Over time that died away. Now there is distance between you and I. No matter what I try to say And what is going on inside your head And Oh I'm torn, by your heart. Out of all things, How did this, How did this started. Oh I'm torn, by your heart, It doesn't sit well with me I'm sure it doesn't with you, with you. Damns were given then were thrown, To my trash bin of memories. Clearly, you wanted to be alone. No matter what I tried to say, And what is going on inside your head. And Oh I'm torn, by your heart, out of all things,How did this, How did this started. Oh I'm torn, by your heart, It doesn't sit well with me I'm sure it doesn't with you, with you. That it was sweet, though it was swift as well, And if this is what you want, who am I to stop you And so just go, go, I'd be tearing you apart, Just remember I'm here by the bonfire. And Oh I'm torn, by your heart, out of all the things, How did this, How did this started. Oh I'm torn, by your heart, It doesn't sit well with me, I’m sure it doesn't with you , with you…
Track Name: Thought Process
The boat of good fortune has found its way over the waves. I cross my fingers in hopes to smuggle myself aboard. But I am just too loud. Oh, I am afraid of things burning down again, it is just all so overwhelming. I can’t hide, it’s justified. Oh no, I’m sure things will burn down again, It’s just a matter of time. I can’t hide, it’s justified, Justified, Justified. Or are these products of my mind. I’m trapped between the clutter of the cargo bay and footsteps in my direction. Maybe who comes will be my friend. Then I will belong here. Oh, I am afraid of things burning down again, it is just all so overwhelming. I can’t hide, it’s justified. Oh no, I’m sure things will burn down again it’s just a matter of time, I can’t hide, it’s justified, Justified, Justified. Or are these products of my mind. Somehow these things make sense to me. The fears are real, as much as they are dreams. Of course they are strong as I feed them daily, Leaving me to starve with hope, with hope, with hope, with hope. Oh no, I am afraid of things burning down again, it is just all so overwhelming. I can’t hide, it’s justified. Oh no, I’m sure things will burn down again, it’s just a matter of time. I can’t hide, it’s justified. Oh no, I’m sure things will burn down again it is just all so overwhelming. I can’t hide, it’s justified. Oh no, I’m sure things will burn down again it’s just a matter of time. I can’t hide, it’s justified, Justified, Justified.
Track Name: When the World Knocks Me Down
This world is dark, splattered in the gray. The choices we’ve made had consequences. Though I’ve never felt the same. And a dream I don’t deserve appears before me, before me, But I choose to chase it anyway, Cause that’s what I love to do: Cause when the world knocks me down, I’ll get up again. Cause when the world knocks me down, I’ll pick up a glass and drink it. When the world knocks me down, I’ll get up again. When the world knocks me down, I’ll pick up a glass and drink it. I want to restore, the faith I had in myself, So that when the world gets black, I can lighten things for someone else. And a dream I don’t deserve appears before me, before me, But I choose to chase it anyway, Cause that’s what I love to do: Cause when the world knocks me down, I’ll get up again. When the world knocks me down, I’ll pick up a glass and drink it. When the world knocks me down, I’ll get up again. When the world knocks me down, I’ll pick up a glass and drink it. When the world knocks me down, I’ll get up again. When the world knocks me down, I’ll pick up a glass and drink it. Oh, I’m on my own, got no one to my name, I’m on my own. I’m on my own, I’m on my own. I’m knocking the World, I’m on my own, I’m on my own, I’m on my own. I’m knocking the World, I’m on my own
Track Name: Fizzy Brew
The first day, they laughed at me. Then cancer came, started to cry. I finally found a way, to make my escape to something more crystalline. Let’s put it on the line, I say, I’ve got nothing left to bid. Let’s put it on the line this way I've got nothing left to bid. Then again, when was I right, I’ve got nothing left to bid. Then again I'm loving this fight. I’ve got nothing left, I’ve got nothing left. Finding out if they’re in control, Finally got a way of my own. Finding out is vast and powerful, But you can’t handle it, can you. Let's put it on the line, I say. I’ve got nothing left to bid. Let’s put it on the line, this way I've got nothing left to bid. Then again, when was I right. I’ve got nothing left to bid. Then again I'm looking for a fight. I’ve got nothing left, I’ve got nothing left, I’ve got nothing left. Just remember, I did this for you and remember to be kind when I'm gone..Ha! I'm just kidding, I’ll live forever. You and Me will be together, No more, No more. Let’s put it on the line I say, I’ve got nothing left to bid. Let’s put it on the line this way I've got nothing left to bid. Then again, when was I right. I’ve got nothing left to bid. Then again I'm loving this fight. I’ve got nothing left (x2)
Track Name: Dangerous
Step by step, you walk into the fray Of smog still lingering from yesterday. You cough quietly pass structures, Such big things made by little people. You wonder what's the cost of all this: Kill the green for the green (x3) You ponder on the price of blurring wants and needs: Kill the green for the green (x3) Never mind these thoughts are dangerous: Kill the green for the green (x3)You lock it up away, that's what you always do (x2) Go back home, back to your dreams, That’s the only retreat you ever need or ever want. And In your dreams, you see a flower, You stomp on it, hear cheers from a distance. You wonder what's the cost of all this: Kill the green for the green (x3) You ponder on the price of blurring wants and needs: Kill the green for the green (x3) Never mind these thoughts are dangerous: Kill the green for the green (x3) You lock it up away, that's what you always do (x2) Wake up in the morning so gray, Dreary with smog from yesterday. The guilt of the dreams still chokes you, You lock it up, that's what you always do. You wonder what's the cost of all this: Kill the green for the green (x3)You ponder on the price of blurring wants and needs: Kill the green for the green (x3) Never mind these thoughts are dangerous: Kill the green for the green (x3) You lock it up away that's what you always do (x2)
Track Name: Hello
You get to see things burn apart, you get to hear things burn apart. The crackle rises in hush volumes, the smoke is escaping everyone. But you stand still and burn up, You watch the past as there is no future for you. Oh you stand tall and burn up, You watch as things come to an end. Your last thought is a scramble, a simple: Goodbye, Goodbye. Love’s loss or gains zip past you, every mistake comes back at you. The crackle rises in hush volumes, the smoke is escaping everyone. But You stand still and burn up, You watch the past as there is no future for you. Oh you stand tall and burn up, You watch as things come to an end. Your last thought is a scramble a simple. Look to the mirror, see your sins reflected. The closer you get, the more it feels so cracked. Running out of time I ask this question: Did the life you live match your death? Your death. There is no time for regrets, live while you die remember this: Crackle rises in hush volume, join the darkness in peace, So please my friend, stand still and burn up. You watch the past as there is no future for you. So you stand tall and burn up, You watch as things come to an end. Goodbye my love the end says hello, Sorry for such short notice (x4) The last thought is a scrambleA simple Goodbye……..

Track Name: Let It Go
I look around I see grim faces, polluted places, Endless races of power.I know it’s tough in this economy, But we got to make it out until it’s you and me. Cause if you haven’t notice it's a war out there. Blood splattered on the front lines of our morals. And we keep on, oh we keep on. And I realize it’s hard to say you’re wrong. So let's compromise And find a way to move on. Let it go, move on. There’s nothing here, to hold on to. It’s not worth the fight. Just keep holding on. Revenge it's bittersweet. It doesn’t change your defeat. It only numbs the pain For a little while. So we keep on (x6) And I realize, it's hard to say you're wrong, So let's compromise And find a way to move on. Guns a blazed, keep them high, Waste your time, just say your lies. And I keep thinking of ways to make you hurt.For what reason, I don’t know, The hate just spreads, the pollution grows. And I don't think things will ever go back to the way they were. As you yell, I’ll move on. Learn new tricks, play my songs. I’m done with all these petty fights, weary days, and sleepless nights. We’ll change our paths, no time to waste. Life moves fast. We must make haste (x2)So we keep on (x2) And I realize it's hard to say you're wrong. So let's compromise And find a way to move on, So we keep on (x2) And I realize it's hard to say you're wrong. So let's compromise And find a way to move on, So we keep on
