Track Name: Bleed
Can you put your hand on the wheel
Cause I'm loosin my feel
All of my life is busy still
I can never be filled

But I'm doin fine ya
I learned to let it go
Cause I cannot hide
I bleed my rock n' roll

I found my people over here
right between all the fear
we've got the best that you can choose
we've got nothing to loose

And I'm doin fine ya
I learned to let it go
cause I cannot hide
no, I bleed my rock n' roll

I'm right down here with you

It's just another day feeling exactly the same
I'm gettin numb, but I never stop feeling the pain
I don't remember signing up to be a slave to the money
I'm getting stung but I gotta keep reaching for honey
This is a moment to remember that you're living life
It's your life
and you're not done, you're not done
Do you remember how to make it fun
cause you're not done, your not done
You're not stuck in the fuckin machine
and you're not done, your not done
Track Name: Competition
Do you let them choose the one?
No
Do you make them fight for the one?
You do
and if there is enough,
how would we ever know?
We never hear, “too much”
always just, “more”

and it makes me feel so tired
to think that you're not
It makes us all so wired
I need to hold you down so I can get on top

It's just another lie,
and we all know how it goes

we all started, we're in the game
but where we started from, wasn't the same
and we're not playing, it's a fight that we're living for
but no one knows, who it is that we're fighting for

and it makes me feel so tired
to think that you're not
It makes us all so wired
I need to hold you down so I can get on top


Competition makes the world go round
competition makes me hold you down

It's just another lie,
and we all no how it goes.
Track Name: Slow Down
I need to slow down

Cause I can't beat a life
that's gonna run me down

do you remember the last time
you could hear the space
between the thoughts in your head?

I took a few days
and burned the hours away
remembering I'm not dead

and I could see...
I need some time to develop inside of me
cause you know I,
still wanna try
to live my life like a won't ever die

I need to slow down

Cause I can't live a life
that's gonna run me down

I was a victim of the fear of, “enough?” and “to much getting away?”
I pushed hard for the answers to the questions that nobody made
and it was never enough

but now I see...
I need some time to develop inside of me
cause you know I'm
still gonna try
to live my life like I won't ever die

I think I'll take another minute
another minute
I think I'll take another minute
and do absolutely nothing with it

I'm not afraid of losing all of my time
I'm not afraid to live a life that is mine...
and make it easy on my mind

I'm not afraid of losing all of my time,
as long as it's still mine.
Track Name: Homosapien
I'm alright but I know you,
and I know you're gonna want some more
that's alright cause I'm with you
every time that you hit the floor

and I go down when your around, whatever you wish
cause I want you around, when I come back for the finish

and I feel like you're not wanting to go
cause the weather man says he's bringing the snow
I'm tellin you now
that I don't wanna get out

Ya, you always let me in
you know I'll do it again if I can
cause I'm a homosapien
I always fill it again when I'm done

lets have some fun, start an addiction
this one's the one you are my mission
you watch my back, I'm gonna let it go

and I go down when your around, whatever you wish
cause I want you around, when I come back for the finish

and I feel like your not wanting to go
cause the weather man said he's bringing the snow
I'm telling you now
that I don't wanna get out

Ya, you always let me in
you know I'll do it again if I can
cause I'm a homosapien
there's always something I can't understand

I know you, you feel just like I do
you do what you do to make it through
Track Name: Nothing I can do about it
Your really hot,
like something I am not to touch
I wanna get you high
but I wanna get you high to much
So I try to take it down
cause I want you around
you go around, go around
and come right back to me
your looking in my eyes
like you want me to call my bluff
well, I'm all in

You got nothing I don't desire
and there's nothing I can do about it
You're gonna leer me in the fire
and there's nothing I can do about it

You're really smooth
like the way that I could move in you
You're lips are spread apart
like the way you rip a heart in two
So I try to get away
cause I know I can't stay
your body keep swayin
your fingers keep playin
and I'm still stayin,
I'm still stayin, I'm still stayin, I'm still stayin
Ya, I'm still stayin, I'm still stayin and you…
You're coming back to me

You got nothing I don't desire
and there's nothing I can do about it
You're gonna leer me in the fire
and there's nothing I can do about it

I wanna love ya, make you feel my love
I love your fire, gonna let…it..
burn me away!
