Track Name: Always Home
Every time I leave this city behind for open roads and unfamiliar places,
I get a peace of mind that’s one of a kind.
I wouldn’t trade it for the world (not for anything).
I’ve never felt so free (sing this song with me)
This is how I know its what’s right for me.
I’ve never felt so free (sing this song with me)
This is how I know its what’s right for me.
This is freedom, this is life, this is what living should always feel like.
Here I am in a place unknown but for tonight this is my home.
This is freedom, this is life, this is what living should always feel like.
Here I am in a place unknown but for tonight this is my home.
Tonight this is home.
Tonight this is my home.
Tonight this is home.
Tonight this is my home.
Every time I leave this city behind for open roads and unfamiliar places,
I get a peace of mind that’s one of a kind.
I wouldn’t trade it for the world (not for anything).
I’ve never felt so free (sing this song with me)
This is how I know its what’s right for me.

Track Name: Choices
So many paths to choose from,
This is all so overwhelming.
So many paths to choose from,
So many choices and so little time.
Why cant I just make up my fucking mind?
I try to make myself focus,
But I just cant seem to pull myself together.
Will I ever? Will I ever?
There’s so much pressure for perfection
And it's all breaking me down.
I will never be, the person you fell short of.
I will never be.
I will never be built of your washed up dreams.
(I’ll never be, I’ll never be you)
You can’t live through me,
I have a mind of my own.
(I’ll never be, I’ll never be you)
I’ll take the path of a dreamer.
Because it follows the heart.
I just cant settle for your cookie cutter life.
Everything’s so simple when it's all the same.
I’ll take the path of a dreamer.
Track Name: Listen Up!
First things first,
Quit talking shit if you want to see this grow,
That’s the first thing that’s gotta go (its gotta go).
Pointing out other peoples flaws, it doesn’t make you “cool”
In fact you’re just as flawed as them.
How does that make you feel?
There’s no room for jealousy or bitterness here.
We’re all better then that.
I know you’re better then that.
We all have the chance to be, have the chance to be a part of something great.
We’ve got to pick each other up,
Not pull each other down.
We all have the chance to be, have the chance to be a part of something great.
We’ve got to pick each other up,
Not pull each other down.
Its time that we stand together and build something better,
put our differences aside and lend a helping hand.
If you don’t like what I stand for,
then leave your negativity at home.
Hate me all you want but I’ll never stop loving.
We all have the chance to be, have the chance to be a part of something great.
We’ve got to pick each other up,
Not pull each other down.
We all have the chance to be, have the chance to be a part of something great.
We’ve got to pick each other up,
Not pull each other down.
I just don’t understand why we all can’t get along.
Track Name: Beacons
Deep down, I know I’m only half the man that I should be.
I’ve been holding myself back from becoming the man I see in me.
This isn’t quite who I thought I’d be.
This reflections like a portrait of a dying dream
but I won’t let negativity take away what means the most to me.
My dreams aside, I never meant to bring you down.
I just try to inspire, light fires like beacons to guide us back when we’ve gone astray.
These dreams and what I stand for will always remain as beacons burning in my heart, knowing that I’ll never stray too far.
I’ve seen far too many people live their lives without passion,
Promise me you won't be the same.
Follow your beacons they’ll light your way.
I just try to inspire, light fires like beacons to guide us back when we’ve gone astray.
These dreams and what I stand for will always remain as beacons burning in my heart, knowing that I’ll never stray too far.
Track Name: Lost But Not Forgotten
I’m still wondering if we’ll ever see the day
when the hopeless become hopeful
and the helpless gather their strength
and they stare hate in the eye?
Tell me you’ll stand on your own.
Don’t deny yourself, there’s something left inside your heart.
Tell me you’ll stand on your own.
I stand on my own.
I’ve looked into your eyes,
I’ve heard what you have to say,
and I couldn’t care less what you think of me
‘cause I know who I am,
I am hopeful.
And I know who you are,
You’re fucking hateful.
You are the hate that brings me hope,
Without you I am hopeless.
You fuel the fire that gives me the desire to be the best “me” that I can.
I’ve looked into your eyes,
I’ve heard what you have to say,
And I couldn’t care less what you think of me
‘cause I know who I am,
I am hopeful.
And I know who you are,
You’re fucking hateful.
Let this be a revelation of the hopeless.
Let me see you stare straight in the eyes of anyone who’s never believed in you.
I hope it gives you the strength that it gave me.
Track Name: Dark Horse
Pushing myself to stand up against the odds,
to do what they said I never could.
I know I have it in me (you’ll see, you‘ll see)
It's been there all along.
I just need to focus my energy.
They think I’ll never be good enough.
I can’t wait to see the look on their faces
when I’m standing in the very places
they never thought that I could.
Longing for the day I prevail
so I can make each and every one of you eat your words.
I have no doubts, I know I’ll prevail.
One day, I promise, I’ll make you all eat your words.
Don’t underestimate my dreams and aspirations
‘cause you don’t know the first thing about me.
If you’re waiting for me to give up.
You might just be the one who wastes away.
Pushing myself to stand up against the odds,
to do what they said I never could.
I know I have it in me (you’ll see, you’ll see)
It's been there all along.
I just need to focus my energy.
They think I’ll never be good enough .
I can’t wait to see the look on their faces
when I’m on top of the world.
