Track Name: Demons
It's hard to see the space you're in
spending days just analyzing
if living is supposed to feel free
then why does every day feel so draining

the demons are here
they're inside my head
they draw nearer nearer
holding me hostage
they beg to be fed
they feed off my nightmares
and drain my courage
the demons are real now
they are made in my own image

and now we fight
fight the feelings
regain the mind that is yours
i am one being
Track Name: Existential Pop Song
Been lost for days
chasing a blaze
my eyes are bright but glazed
the man's a liar
my soul's a fire
all my desires

what is the reason? what is the reason of being at all?

the walls crawled, patterns revealed in the chaos, beautiful organization, godless but purposeful, senseless but meaningful and this angst this weight, this pain this memory is a gift.

Been lost for days my careless ways, no sober days
i want to see it, enough to believe it, just to be near it

what is the reason? what is the reason of being at all?

and every sunset she watched from her porch was a reminder, of a routine destined to halt, on a ship going nowhere, and all she ever had, was time (time that seems endless)

what is the reason?
Track Name: Privilege
Uncomfortable. Intolerable. Unbearable. Deplorable. Incorrigible. Unbendable. Unbreakable. Undependable.

You smooth over it. You smooth over it.
You feel none of it. So why bother with it.
Cause you benefit. Cause you benefit.
The air is toxic and I am over it.

Can you hear me now?

I am standing here. My voice is very loud.
My mouth is shaped like yours. Can you hear me now.
Can you hear me now? I am getting loud. You cannot stop us now, Too many of us now.

Oh yeah I see your cage. Releasing pent up rage.
down with my childish ways. I won't blindly obey.
I won't rely on you. Think for my goddamn self. won't be denied by you.
Every feeling felt.

You see it now acknowledge it. That's your privilege.

You smooth over it. You smooth over it.
You feel none of it. So why bother with it.
Cause you benefit. Cause you benefit.
The air is toxic and I am over it.

Can you hear me?

First they came for her, then they came for him, till there was no one left till there was no one. First they came for him, then they came for her, till there was no one.

You see it now acknowledge it. That's your privilege.
Track Name: New World
It's near. It's here
Brand new world
Don't be scared. I know you will
Brave new world

I'll stand with you. Brand new world
Joining hands. Brave new world

I'm ready to watch you die
Testify against your lies
I will
I will not surrender
writing it down, doesn't make it right.
I won't let them sacrifice for your opinion.

We are non compliant
We are the non compliant
Track Name: Trouble
Blurry lines.
Don't you know
you've been on my mind
Leaning in for a compromise
The air is thick in paradise
Let me show it to you

The streets are alive tonight
And everyone knows your name it's true
I wanna hide away with you

If you wanna go, I'll go with you

You look like trouble to me
And it's brewing,
under the surface
You look like trouble
And it's so obvious

If you wanna go, I'll go with you
Track Name: GET IT GET IT
Come on war boy show be that you really mean it
Paint your face boy show me that you really want it
To Valhalla
driving faster faster faster
Witness me now, I live, I die, I live again, sir.

I chase it, I chase it,
I fully embrace all the racin' I'm racin'
I'm shining, straight driving
I'm gaining on you
you see me I see you

Just drive
Just drive
Just drive
Just drive
Track Name: First Kiss at the Skating Rink
And we're making our own way. Following our every whim it's true we've found a sound inside us it's new i promise it's real

I get chills
I get chills
I get chills 'cause i heard you play it the first time

I feel your rhythm jn my thighs
Better than the rhythm of the night
You got me feeling so high
Not asking why

And we're making bank now, A hundred million dollars galore
It's true i heard you play that song for the first time i sang along

And got chills
I get chills
I get chills cuz i heard you play it the first time

I feel your rhythm in my thighs
Better than the rhythm of the night
You got me feeling so high
Not asking why

I'm in for the ride
Track Name: Gonna Reign
Do what you want to
Feel what you wanna feel
Don't you want to be free
let it flow so easy

If you gonna rain on my game day I'm gonna make an album
take a damn pen to my existence unmask my inner phantom

I'm not fucking around, I'm in completely,
feet on the ground, I slice in neatly
Let's forget these anxious feelings
display them around for all to see
my demons live outside of me

Groove to the music, if you can groove then you can get used to it
Groove to the music, if you can groove then you can get used to it
Embrace your darkness, if that's who you are then you be true to it
Groove to the music, if you can groove then you can get used to it

If you gonna rain on my game day I'm gonna make an album
take a damn pen to my existence unmask my inner phantom

Do what you want to
Feel what you wanna feel
Don't you want to be free
let it flow so easy
Track Name: God Isn't Gonna Fix This
god isn't gonna fix this
we're just full of it
when there is nothing left to say
we pretend to pray
how do you console the living
once the dead is gone
we can't find the words
we'd rather not look on

exchange casualties
keep estranged these daily cruelties
this daily mortality
is taking it's toll on me
