Sell My Soul

There are times, when I’d rather be a tree

Oh not worried, not worried bout a thing 

Holding tight to the dirt underneath

Spending my life exploring every shade of green

There are things, things I wish I was

So many things, Im running from

I’d sell my soul

To discover things unknown

Set fire to all thats cold

Watch the world unfold

But the truth is that I’m terrified

There’s nobody on the other side

There has never been a reason for this life

There are days, when I’d rather be a bird

I could do what I want completely undeterred 

Singing songs of the things I overheard 

Spend my life up in the sky above the earth

There are things, things I wish I was

So many things, Im running from

I’d sell my soul

To discover things unknown

Set fire to all thats cold

Watch the world unfold

But the truth is that I’m terrified

There’s nobody on the other side

There has never been a reason for this life

It all seems so foolish 

To pretend I can do this 

Take my fear and subdue it

In a world of make believe 

Oh it all seems so foolish

If all we are is what we see 

Is there nothing more to this

Or is it all, just make believe  

I’d sell my soul

To discover things unknown

Set fire to all thats cold

Watch the world unfold

But the truth is that I’m terrified

There’s nobody on the other side

There has never been a reason for this life

Disaster Days

I was born in the dark

It was chaos from the start

Under the gun I fell apart

Lost sight of who we are

We’re wishing for change

In a never ending maze 

In an endless give and take 

Not sure who to blame

These are the days where your nightmares come alive

And your greatest fears are realized

These are disaster days

Few will ever escape 

When the luster fades 

It’s to late

When did it all fall apart 

Was is it like this from the start 

What has been done can’t be erased

These are disaster days

I was given a chance

The whole world placed in my hands

Fooled by a grand romance

A careful slide of  hand

We all want to believe 

That we can still be free

But they’ve locked away the key 

There’s no way out no guarantee

These are the days where your nightmares come alive

And your greatest fears are realized

These are disaster days

Few will ever escape 

And when the luster fades 

It’s to late

When did it all fall apart 

Was is it like this from the start 

What has been done can’t be erased

These are the days where your nightmares come  alive

And your greatest fears are realized

And the memory of better days fades into the night

And your alone, you can’t hide

These are disaster days

Few will ever escape 

And when the luster fades 

It’s to late

When did it all fall apart

Was is it like this from the start 

What has been done can’t be erased

These are disaster days

Chasing

Lie awake at night 

Staring at the ceiling

Waiting for the pain to numb 

Lost in black and white

The void starts to deepen 

You’re not sure where you belong

You’re chasing the wind

But you’re never gonna catch it

The truth of it is

Its all so meaningless

You are more than counterfeit  

Meant to shine not just exists 

Live life like you imagine 

Its hard to believe 

That you really want to be 

Just like that girl in the magazine 

You’re a voice that doesn’t speak 

A book that doesn’t read

You sold your personality just to be seen

You’re chasing the wind

But you’re never gonna catch it

The truth of it is

Its all so meaningless

You are more than counterfeit  

Meant to shine not just exists 

Live life like you imagine 

Who really cares what they say 

Let nothing stand in your way 

No need to be afraid

Don’t let your life slip away

You’re chasing the wind

But you’re never gonna catch it

The truth of it is

Its all so meaningless

You are more than counterfeit  

Meant to shine not just exists 

Live life like you imagine 

Ocean 

Maybe this will all blow over

And we’ll go back to being friends

Said we loved one another

Couldn’t make it in the end

Yea we talked about forever

Let our guard down now and then 

But there’s a skeleton in the cupboard 

And we’re both unraveling

You, You fill me up with sweet emotion

You, You shoot me down and you leave me broken 

We are an ocean, beautiful in motion but dangerous

If I could only have one thing

If life would grant me one more wish 

I don’t need to hear you’re sorry 

No I just wish, I could forget

You, You fill me up with sweet emotion

You, You shoot me down and you leave me broken 

We are an ocean, beautiful in motion but dangerous

Take it back, take back all of the I love you’s that you said

And hold on to all the secrets that you kept 

You’re in my head

I can’t forget

You, You fill me up with sweet emotion

You, You shoot me down and you leave me broken 

We are an ocean, beautiful in motion but dangerous

Hey Now

You’ve got twenty three reasons that you hate me

Cuz I’m the kind of person its plain to see

My inconsistencies and flaws, 

Every single thing I do is wrong

I guess you’ve never seen a mirror

I don’t think it’d get much clearer

One day you’ll see, you’re just like me

Now won’t that be a catastrophe

Hey now / watch your mouth / you don’t know what you’re talkin bout

Hey now / slow down / I’m not a monster, I’m not your problem

Hey now / shut your mouth / you’ve got no room to call me out

Hey now / don’t fool yourself / we’re all to blame, we’re all one in the same

There is something in the way we communicate

People like us underestimate

The mess that we are gonna make

This tiny spark goes up in flames

It’s always gonna be someone else’s fault

Whether thats even true or not

We’ll always protect ourselves

He said, I said, she said

It’s hard to tell

Hey now / watch your mouth / you don’t know what you’re talkin bout

Hey now / slow down / I’m not a monster, I’m not your problem

Hey now / shut your mouth / you’ve got no room to call me out

Hey now / don’t fool yourself / we’re all to blame, we’re all one in the same

Collect your lies, to buy and sell

The devil is in the details

Hear my cry, hear my hell

The devil is in the details 

*Hear my cry hear my hell

We all deserve to feel the nail

Hey now / watch your mouth / you don’t know what you’re talkin bout

Hey now / slow down / I’m not a monster, I’m not your problem

Hey now / shut your mouth / you’ve got no room to call me out

Hey now / don’t fool yourself / we’re all to blame, we’re all one in the same

Fishes

I’m scared to death to be alone 

I know someday i’ll find my own true love 

A dozen faces have come and gone 

But no one stays around here very long 

Its hard to feel, like the only fish left in the sea 

Im dreaming still, I know that you are out there waiting 

Hurry up, come to me 

I love you so 

Promise me that you’ll 

Hurry up, cant you see 

I need you so 

I need you so desperately 

Im scared to death you dont exist 

But i’ll take that risk, it’s true I cant resist 

The years the years have come and gone 

But i’ll wait for you, i’ve waited for so long 

Its hard to feel, like the only fish left in the sea 

Im dreaming still, I know that you are out there waiting 

Hurry up, come to me 

I love you so 

Promise me that you’ll 

Hurry up, cant you see 

I need you so 

I need you so desperately 

The hardest part, of this whole dream 

Is tearing apart my doubt, finding hope to believe 

That my tired heart, is not incomplete 

That my missing puzzle piece is out there searching for me 

Hurry up, come to me 

I love you so 

Promise me that you’ll 

Hurry up, cant you see 

I need you so 

I need you so desperately 

I need you so desperately

Different

I’m just a small town kid 

With extraordinary things inside my head 

Feeling stuck in a system where dreams are forbidden 

I’m paralyzed by the lies I’ve been fed 

They say go to school get good grades 

Grow up strong and graduate 

Chase that American dream 

Like it will keep you safe, 

But I am afraid I can’t see it that way 

All my friends 

They don’t understand who I am 

Part of me is just like them 

Part of me feels lost in a circle that never ends 

Can’t escape this perpetual spin 

No I don’t need to fit in 

Just let me be different 

All my friends 

They don’t understand who I am 

Part of me is just like them 

Part of me feels different 

Who I am is not who they made me to be, 

I’ve got a soul full of hope of a life all my own, 

I’ll break down these walls and I’ll fight to believe 

There’s no penance for being unique, 

That it’s okay to be me 

All my friends 

They don’t understand who I am 

Part of me is just like them 

Part of me feels different

Gonna Be Hell

I’ve got a fire in my stomach and it’s making me sick 

They’re things that you don’t know about me that I cant fix

I know I could get better but its gonna be hell

They say freedom ain’t free you’ve got to pay for your sins

I would rather not; I’ll just pretend that they don’t exist

I know I could get better but its gonna be hell

Maybe I’m right, or maybe I’m to scared

To figure out why, I pretend that I’m all right 

You said things would get better but I don’t see how

I don’t feel bad, at least not all the time

I’m just living like mad; I’m wasting no time

I know I could get better but I’d rather raise hell

No I don’t want to hear about religion you’ve found

I don’t want to hear not a word that’s profound

I know I could get better but id rather have hell

Maybe I’m right, or maybe I’m to scared

To figure out why, I pretend that I’m all right 

You said things would get better but I don’t see how

It’s starting to feel like you’ve already made up your mind 

There’s nothing I can do, to prove to you, that I am telling the truth 

You’ve never ever felt good inside

But that’s not my fault

You know I’ve tried, to be there for you.

Maybe you’re right 

Or maybe you’re just to scared 

To figure out why

You pretend that you’re all right 

Yea I thought you could get better 

But I’m not sure now

You could ever figure it out

Around The World

Around the world & back again 

To the bottom of the sea 

My love for you will never end 

Now and forever you’ve got me 

Until we all run out of oxygen 

The earth crumbles underneath 

My love for you is infinite 

Now and forever you’ve got me 

What is this love that pulls me closer 

The sweetest drug thats taking over 

Cant get enough lost all composure 

What is this love, you are my love 

And I will follow you into the great unknown 

Across an endless sky of stars 

Into a fairytale thats ours 

We will fly around the world and back again 

What is this love that pulls me closer 

The sweetest drug thats taking over 

Cant get enough lost all composure 

What is this love, you are my love

Castle

Spend your life hunting that dollar 

And all the worth that it brings 

The better mans’ got the fatter wallet 

Thats what we are taught to believe 

One way or the other 

You can buy all the happiness you need 

Success the most charming of lovers 

Makes us safe in the arms of the beast 

We are a kingdom of fools 

Building mountains of gold 

If cash can not save us 

There must be no hope 

Like a castle of sand 

We don’t stand a chance 

When the waves come crashing on in 

Say what you want of our problems 

And the empire that you think we are 

Show me the hole in your pocket 

Half the size of the whole in your heart 

We are a kingdom of fools 

Building mountains of gold 

If cash can not save us 

There must be no hope 

Like a castle of sand 

We don’t stand a chance 

When the waves come crashing on in 

We’ve an obsession, a thirst for possession 

But the greater depression, is inside ourselves 

We all feel alone here, crushed by our own fears 

Trying to buy our way out of this hell 

We are a kingdom of fools 

Building mountains of gold 

If cash can not save us 

There must be no hope 

Like a castle of sand 

We don’t stand a chance 

When the waves come crashing on in
