Track Name: Lost Anthem
I don’t have anything to say
you better hope it stays that way
I think about you
every day
but can’t talk to you because you are too far away
I worry about you and sometimes I can’t sleep
grasping for memories I wish I could keep.

(chorus):
But you’re gone
already for too long
I live by your anthem
and march to your song
but you’re gone
already for too long
you’ve been gone for too long
you've been gone for too long.

I remember that day full of darkness and sorrow
I’ll always remember it that way
it started out fine but then the mood all changed
a single text and
bang
the world just fell away
and to be honest
I still can’t process it
shut down if any topic ever crosses it
heartbreak is delicate
haven’t been through many losses yet
but it’s painful and the scars won’t fade
cause it’s a wound
not a cut.

[Chorus]

Greif is like a story or an odyssey
and if you don't believe my story than don't listen to me
but instead of suddenly criticizing me
think for a second what your story will be

[Chorus]
Track Name: Don't Give On Me
You’ve had my heart
right from the start
Even though you never knew it
I never knew that it would be this way
I gave you all I had to give
but so far you’re oblivious
and now I’m stuck
with nothing else to say

(Chorus):
So don’t
give on me now
give up on me
I won’t be the same
I promise if you
give on me now
give up on me
I won’t feel a thing...

Whether it’s
pain or grief
or maybe they’re memories
of a time when I was so lonely without you
Admiring
from afar
tiring
is my heart from your ignorance
Maybe it is my fault

[Chorus]

You’ve had my heart
right from the start
even though you never knew it
I never knew that it would be this way
I gave you all I had to give
but so far you’re oblivious
and now I’m stuck with nothing else to say
Track Name: Hey Dream Boy
Have you ever found it funny to find you’ve gone insane
and the people don’t believe you they think it’s just a craze
soon all the people ‘round you
people talking to themselves
making out with the wall and conversing with bookshelves
they started following you now look at what you’ve done
a generation of drunkards not even twenty one
they can’t do their math and they’re always not cool
it’s not even their parents fault and now it’s all yours too
I’ve got Eminem’s handwriting and you know how I know
because my gone for good imagination tells me so
So reality aint real and my fantasies are fake
I’m gonna need a whole damn song to get myself straight

(Chorus):
Hey Dream boy
can you see my face
I know it’s a disgrace
and I’ve got no place
Hey dream boy
can you see my eyes?
please just believe me
I don’t tell no lies (X2)

asylum sustained writing I’m supposed to write my mind
If I did my class would blow only one nuke shy
Its really not my fault that I’ve got too much swag
and my minds at the peak the best I’ve ever had
Most the time
I can’t think or blink
thoughts a bit like running the kitchen sink
all my thoughts just going down the drain that’s my imagination kids
so don’t do
anything

[Chorus]

No seriously kids
I swear I’m not (high
but I’m bat crazy
so I don’t tell no lies
but that’s gotta count for something
since you swim or you die
I ain’t sentimental
That's not where my talent lies
It’s a cry for hope
and at least I’ll try
if you want my honesty I can grant you mine
I’ve said it all before and got no other rhymes
don’t be offended Dream Boy
please don’t cry

[Chorus](x4)
Track Name: Take Me Away
If all the noise just ceased to be
the sounds of all mortality
and cats and dogs
all living things
stop and listen to the rain
If every star it shined so bright
to guide despairing
through the night
standing atop the buildings
at great heights just to listen

(Chorus):
So take
me away
in your arms I’m not dreaming I promise
though a dreamer I might be
So take
me away
to the sky
will reality stop screaming
maybe not…

The library it happens to be
the only safer haven
or it’s heaven I should say
because about that too it’s written
with life or death
and dark or shine
every other
form of strife
so why is there all the conflict
oh please
tell me why?

[Chorus]
[instrumental]
[Chorus X2]
Track Name: Black Cloak Ballad
Every day I’m singing the same old tune
I’m in the black cloak funk
that I’m singing to you
so every day when I call your phone
thanks for lying and I still feel alone so

(Chorus):
So wrap me in your black cloak
when I say no cigarettes
all I see is smoke
so one day
when I call your name
you won’t be around
it will drive me insane.

At this point it is out of my control
your lungs don’t seem to work anymore
your body is working overtime
you'll pay the price
but the broken heart’s mine

[chorus]
[bridge]
[chorus]
Track Name: Oops Maybe I'm Crazy
Oops, I let anxiety get the best of me again...
I promised myself
that this isn’t how it would
end
Oops, I let paranoia
get the best of me again
for I’m fighting against it
fighting for my friends

(Chorus):
Just because I feel different
does it make me insane?
I promise I’m crazy
but it’s how
you play
the game

Oops, I let my emotions tear me apart
tears streaming down my face
and blackening my heart
I was hoping that I am
authentic as can be
in hopes to hide that giant flaw
that I am a
cliche

[Chorus]
Track Name: Dear Sir
Dear sir
do I know you?
have we ever met?
they say you’re looking down on us
sinners with regret
dear sir is it true you hate rainbows?
or different people?
but
I find that quite peculiar since you also created us…

(Chorus):
I was taught
to question everything
I heard
since pain and manipulation are two big themes in this world
science spirits motives
and everything in between
but I’m ready to face the music that either me or the angels sing…

Dear Mister I’m just asking
why would you hate your creations?
it’s a colder world than I’m sure you imagined
So I’ll give you my salutations
there are people on this earth who believe that you are watching them
if that’s true why not take action instead of watching the ruin?

[Chorus]

Dear Sir, are you a woman?
I’ve never been quite sure
or you could be a spirit
a whisper of a word
Dear Madam is there more of you if so you leave behind no trace
I guess to keep the mystery
I guess to keep the faith

[Chorus]
Track Name: Silent Hero
all the times she kept quiet
all the times she kept silent
she was writing songs down in her heart
composing lyrics to the stars
encrypting her sadness to dust

but she wished she was a hero
one who never thought
she was capable of anything
and kept herself apart
whose flaws she refused
to wear upon her sleeve
and at the end of the day
her failures whisper(ed)
in her ears
and cried themselves to sleep

she always seemed lost even when she was found
seemed so lost inside her own head
and gravity couldn’t seem to hold her down
only our hearts of lead
she wanted to save us from our own misery
from the brutal despair in our bones
so she tried all she knew
but the feeling still grew
that we bear all our burdens alone

she accepted the fact that she wasn’t a hero
and left all of us
behind
solved only her hardships
relieving her problems
no perception of hero
defined

Three silent cheers for our heros
the ones who never thought
they were capable of anything
and kept themselves apart
whose flaws they refused to wear upon their sleeves
and at the end of the day
their failures
whispered in their ears
and cried themselves to sleep
Track Name: Bonus Track: Oops Maybe I'm Crazy (DJ Karl Marx remix)
Oops, I let anxiety get the best of me again...
I promised myself
that this isn’t how it would
end
Oops, I let paranoia
get the best of me again
for I’m fighting against it
fighting for my friends

(Chorus):
Just because I feel different
does it make me insane?
I promise I’m crazy
but it’s how
you play
the game

Oops, I let my emotions tear me apart
tears streaming down my face
and blackening my heart
I was hoping that I am
authentic as can be
in hopes to hide that giant flaw
that I am a
cliche

[Chorus]
