Track Name: The Year
= I don't deal well with adversity - because I already know what is wrong with me - but I'll wait for the better days - and it seems like I've waited a year or three - with only my conscience to comfort me - but I stuck through it anyway - we've seen this whole damn thing before - wholeheartedly replaced with the apathy and a disregard - I woke up in september - I found myself waiting for this year to end - so I could move on with my life - but I - still get up for the weekend - because I found something here that's worth it - but I just have to remind myself - that the best is yet to come - we've been waiting for a long time - you just haven't seen our good side - I put my heart and my head on the line - if this is all I've gotten - that's just fine - I woke up in september - I found myself waiting for this year to end - so I could move on with my life - but I - still get up for the weekend -because I've found something here that's worth it - I just have to remind myself - that the best is yet to come - the best is yet to come - it's been a long time coming to this - this is going to be the year - we've all been waiting for our best days to come - we've all been waiting with our hands around our last hope - I woke up in september - and I found myself - waiting for this year to end - I get up for the weekend - I just have to remind myself - that the best is yet to come =
Track Name: I'm not paranoid, all my fears are real.
= give me a second just to tell you all a story about why I - lay awake at 4 AM - they always blame it on caffeine - but they don't know just quite what it means - to be worthless - well, I guess it's something I'm just not used to yet - but I'll figure it out - I have my friends right by my side - because we all know what it feels like - it's not something that we talk about - but I'm willing to admit - I'm in love with the idea of - the cynics out there kill me - they say "the music doesn't thrill me" - then they go back to all their hits don't waste my time - that's not what I'm about - this isn't something that I'll forget at all - we owe our mind, our hearts, our lives to music now - I have my friends right by my side - because we all know what it feels like - it's not something that we talk about - but I'm willing to admit - I'm in love with the idea of - of you - when all this time you've been matching me blow-for-blow - taking on all these challenges I've faced - this isn't something that I'd throw away - and every time I fall down - you're always there to pick me up - I've never wanted to leave that behind - we always knew - there was something better here - I keep my friends close - how could this be more obvious =
Track Name: This Is Where I Belong
= this is where i belong - there's a time and place for everything - and I'm sure as hell that it's not here - well you're a failure and you tell yourself every night - that this is getting better all the time - I see that we've reached a conclusion about us - in hoping that we can move forward - this is where I belong - I need your help after all - I wish this was over - I'll have nothing fucking left - this is not where I thought I would be - when everything I believed was a lie - I told myself I'd given up - on myself - I see that we've reached a conclusion about us - in hoping that we can move forward - this is where I belong - I need your help after all - this is my time to waste - we're not going anyway - but up from here - I'll move on with my life - this was never a choice - for me - this is where I belong =
Track Name: Broken Hearts and Second Chances
= I can't help but find you - at the bottom of the barrel you fell to - I know that there's a difference between where you are and where I stand - on forever - we all sing out the same song - we can't help but remember - the silence without it - as I lift up my head to the sky - this shouldn't be a surprise - I hope you won't forget this - I know you won't forget this night - I am all I came for - but I swear that I will keep you from the floor - and I know that when I'm with you - you'll feel the same way that I do - ever onward - we all sing out the same song - we can't help but remember the silence without it - as I lift up my head to the sky - this shouldn't be a surprise =
Track Name: Second Guess Myself
= why would I ever second guess myself - with you by my side - staring at the sunsets in my mind - I'm playing these moments through my head - this is surreal non-fiction - all my friends just want to get away - I'll be fine right here - when all the signs say we will fade - we'll cut right through them all - let's prove them wrong - with our finest resolve - if this is something worth having - why not be strong and fight back - all my friends just want to get away - i'll be fine right here - when all the signs say we will fade - we'll cut right through them all - prove them wrong - all I stand for is all of you - and that keeps us alive - all I wanted was something new - but no matter how hard I try - I fail =
Track Name: The Good Life...
= Once again - I've found myself out here with my friends - and all I want to do is figure it out - figure this out - all I am - and all I want to be is nothing more - than something worth fighting for - fighting for - wait a minute I've a better offer for you to consider - take your time - don't waste the life you have in front of you - just take your time I know that I'll take mine - if there's a place that you want to go from here - you can't cut corners and hope that it all goes fine - just keep your feet on the ground and hold your head up high - don't you ever forget - these are the best days of our lives - I'll say I'm fine - even if I start to think I've lost my mind - but I am never giving up - and I will not fall down again - my heart is mine - but I'm beginning to believe it's all for you - it's just the two of us alone - but now we're back where we started - I just want to know one thing - one single question - would you give up - all you had in a second - just to grow up - and live the good life - laid before you - I will never give up on you - even when it's all on the line - but don't you ever doubt for a single second - that I will ever and always - I'll have your back - I'll say I'm fine - even if I start to think I've lost my mind - but I am never giving up - and I will not fall down again - my heart is mine - but I'm beginning to believe it's all for you - it's just the two of us alone - but now we're back where we started =
Track Name: ... Time Well Wasted
= this is going to be the year that I find myself again - this is going to be my time well wasted - on photographs of what I'll leave behind - I'm only nervous when I'm happy - it seems this happens all the time - so try to understand all I'm left with - is this song that's truly mine - maybe honesty's not my best path - I should've know this from the start - but at least my life is mine now - I know I'll find some single source of stability - where I'll anchor my heart - this road is paved with my mistakes - and that's all I'll need and more - so why is this burden so heavy now - much heavier than before - and why can't I sleep =

Track Name: The Underdog ((*NEW SINGLE*))
= I've spent my whole life watching my heroes quit - to find some meaning I - stood in the road and I felt all my consequences - they kick me while I'm down - I guess I shouldn't be surprised at how this turned out - I just couldn't walk away from it somehow - I've always fought tooth and nail and kept my head down - but I still lost my way - I don't think I have the voice to pull it off - and I've got no love left for myself - I don't have a choice to run away - but it's up to me - so it's up to me - this song is for the ones who wrote me off - when I put my heart on the shelf - I promise that our time will come - you'll see - that we're going to be - we're going to be - collecting dust all alone on the shelf - it feels like I've spent this year asleep - lost in a valley as a LONE WOLF wandering - I took a step back for me - rebuilt my confidence - I'll watch this world go to hell - but I will not hate myself - I may be an UNDERDOG - but I'm still me - I swear one day you'll see - take me back to the good life we used to dream - when we conquered everything - I'll keep searching for an honest truth - but I was never looking up to you - my story's written by myself - and no one else - I don't think I have the voice to pull it off - and I've got no love left for myself - I don't have a choice to run away - but it's up to me - so it's up to me - this song is for the ones who wrote me off - when I put my heart on the shelf - I promise that our time will come - you'll see - that we're going to be - we're going to be - lost and alone - wish I could come back home but I - feel it slipping away - what's left to say when I've got no love left - for me - I don't think I have the voice to pull it off - and I've got no love left for myself - I don't have a choice - to run away - but it's up to me - it's up to me - this song is for the ones who wrote me off - when I put my heart on the shelf - I promise that our time will come you'll see - we're going to be - we're going to be - WOLVES - I can't believe I spent this year asleep - and I still struggle through my doubts and fears - but I'll stand strong just as I have before - I think it's time I admit that - I'm still an UNDERDOG =
