Track Name: Castle in the Sand
You can make me fly away
I’m ready to die young, die young, now I’m ready to go
Come, come get Him
Come, come and get him
Come, come get him
Come.
In my hometown lives this small kid
who plays in the sand.
And he’s building a castle,
only using his small toys.

It’s High above the trees,
high enough to see what is missing.

You can make me fly away
I’m ready to die young, die young, now I’m ready to go
Come, come get Him
Come, come and get him
Come, come get him
Come.
In his playground he hears something
hidden in a shell.
The biggest storm he ever saw,
is coming straight at his hard work.

He’s running home, he screams
Giving up his dreams, what a failure he is.
what a failure he is.

When the raindrop fell on his head.
He looked up speaking to his mom
Please don’t cry.
It’s not your fault.
It’s not your fault.
if you’re son’s a failure.
if you’re son’s a failure.

You can make me fly away
I’m ready to die young, die young, now I’m ready to go
Come, come get Him
Come, come and get him
Come, come get him
Come.
Track Name: We Always Did
Can you stay quiet, while you ask me all these so-called questions?
You try to remember when we gave up.
And we keep on holding each other's hands.
Have we failed?
Cause I keep holding a rock in my other hand.

You and I keep falling down this way
We always did, we always did.
You should learn to overcome this pain.
I always will…
‘’You can’t help this free falling.’’

I can’t sleep quiet now that I have found out all the answers.
You cry under the cover where we made love.
It all seems to be following my plan,
I’m so selfish.
I just couldn’t stand to be alone.

You and I keep falling down this way
We always did, we always did.
You should learn to overcome this pain.
I always will…


You and I keep falling down this way
We always did, we always did.
You can only show them what they see
I always did…

You and I keep falling down this way
We always did, we always did.
You should learn to overcome this pain.
I always will…

You and I keep falling down this way
We always did, we always did.
You should learn to overcome this pain.
I always will…

‘’You can’t help this free falling. You can’t help this free falling.’’
Track Name: Fighting Monsters
You’re coming around after all, wish that I forgot.
You better run after all, I won’t let you apologies.
Useless enemy you feel sorry for your actions
It defines me, now's the time to change the past

Cause you don’t know too much.
And you don’t know too much
Cause you don’t know too much.
And you don’t know too much.

It’s been awhile since you’ve been home.
Every time you scare me off.
I hope this time it won’t be long.
Cause I won’t let you live.
Cause now you came alone.

Maybe let me see the one who sleeps and I can let you go.
But I won’t let you beat me, once you’re free. I won’t let you, no!

The pendulum is swinging back, look me in the eyes.
You’re losing a round and the fight, right before the night.
Useless enemy you feel sorry for your actions.
It defines me, now's the time to say goodbye.

Cause you don’t know too much.
And you don’t know too much
Cause you don’t know too much.
And you don’t know too much.

It’s been awhile since you’ve been home.
Every time you scare me off.
I hope this time it won’t be long.
I won’t let you live.
Cause now you came alone.


It’s been awhile since you’ve been home.
Every time you scare me off.
I hope this time it won’t be long.
I won’t let you live.
Cause now you came alone.
Track Name: Crazy Horse
I should be blaming my dad for this one.
Cause I was just trying to write a love song.
But I feel like there’s something you need to know.
So I will be telling the truth with this one.

If you think you're shy, well I am also.
I’m only dancing with my heels and toes
I wish I could tell you to skip this part
But It’s gonna hang on you.

So, we dance like we ride a crazy horse.
And we dance like we ride a crazy horse.

Don’t you misbehave? If it’s stuck inside just push it far away.
Don’t you misbehave? If it’s stuck inside just push it far away.

I should have listen to dad when he said
That ladies will love guys who know how to dance.
If I can say something the kids need to know.
Then I will be aiming the youth with this song.

If you think you're shy, well I am also.
I’m only dancing with my heels and toes
I wish I could tell you to skip this part
But It’s gonna hang on you, it’s gonna hang on you too.

So, we dance like we ride a crazy horse.
And we dance like we ride a crazy horse.

Don’t you misbehave? If it’s stuck inside just push it far away.
Don’t you misbehave? If it’s stuck inside just push it far away.

You’re now ready to go.
You’re on your own today.

Don’t you misbehave? If it’s stuck inside just push it far away.
Don’t you misbehave? If it’s stuck inside just push it far away.
Track Name: No one seems to be right
I can see now we've crossed
The line we keep on trying to ignore.
No one seems to be right then.
Can you see thru me my friend?
Can you see thru me? I am lost.

Should we keep in mind these thoughts?
Cause none of us are listening when we talk.
No one seems to be right then.
I used to agree back then
I used to agree; now I’m lost.

Can you fix me up?
Whoooooo hooooooo me up.
Can you fix me up?
Whoooooo hooooooo me up.

It’s a shame what we’ve become
If dust is really flying on it’s own.
No one seems to be right then.
No one seems to be right then.
No one seems to be right then. No

I can try to blame you for the world we live in,
but it's not fair, no it’s not.

I can feel the bright side but don’t want to see it,
no it’s not sane, no it’s not.

I should live and let live, like we once believed in.
but I have changed, I have…
Track Name: Someday
Gonna make that someday, we can only try again.
But I guess that someday, you will only try to change.
Gonna make that someday, after all the times we failed.
Ho I can say; you’re right if you end this.

Do you have to know when we began?
Do you have enough, so it won’t come from me?
You don’t have to stay, Ho you can leave instead
But I won’t say it loud

Gonna make that someday, we may be trying hard,
But I guess that some dreams you can only find in sleep.
Gonna make that someday, you don’t have to give it up.
Ho I can say; you’re right if you end this.

Do you have to know when we began?
Do you have enough, so it won’t come from me?
You don’t have to stay, Ho you can leave instead
But I won’t say it loud.

Close your eyes and choose your target
Kids are the one to blame.
It’s all right, It’s all rght x2

Memorize how to forget
Kids are the one to blame.
It’s all right, It’s all rght x2


Do you have to know when we began?
Do you have enough, so it won’t come from me?
You don’t have to stay, Ho you can leave instead
But I won’t say it loud.
Track Name: No Bird
You sit inside a cage with doors wide open,
And you sing you want to change because you’re no bird.
You’re scared of heights but wish you could fly away.

You think they’ll stare at you if you come over
The streets where all the crows just follow orders.
You should go out and try to play hide and seek.

All I want, is try to make it.
And all I ask is try to make it.
All I want is you to make it out there.

(you’re no bird)
This place cannot be safe look in the mirror,
Convince yourself to change and start all over.
As you go down, you skip the best parts of life.
Start in the darkness like you play hide and seek.

All I want, is try to make it.
All I ask is try to make it.
All I want is you to make it out there.

You never started to grow. You never started to grow.
You never, never, never started to grow.

Don’t waste your life away, I’m coming over
You need to start to change and become braver
Cause I won’t just settle down.

You Never started to grow. You never started to grow.
You Never started to grow. You never started to grow.

(you’re no bird)

All I want, is try to make it.
All I ask is try to make it.
All I want is you to make it out there.

‘’Cause I want you to make it tonight’’
Track Name: I've Been Wrong
You’ve been wrong going out there
I’ve been wrong going out there
You keep crawling, crawling and I swear.
I’ve been wrong.

I don’t believe, we fought for nothing.
I’m digging deep to find it’s meaning.

You’ve been wrong going out there
I’ve been wrong going out there
You keep crawling, crawling and I swear.
I’ve been wrong.
Anyways.

You can’t be on you’re knees the whole time.
Can you tell me please the past is not enough.

You’ve been wrong going out there
I’ve been wrong going out there
You keep crawling, crawling and I swear.
I’ve been wrong.


I’m giving up, I lost my old friend.
This can’t be it, my scars means nothing now.

You’ve been wrong going out there
I’ve been wrong going out there
You keep crawling, crawling and I swear.
We’ve been wrong.
Anyway.

You can reach out to me for anything.
Oh I’m Begging, please; the past is not enough.
Track Name: Tell Everyone
Tell everyone out there
Tell them your freedom’s over
You’re still searching for something lost
But I'm sure they won't change

And tell them the reason’s gone
living a life that’s over
you keep searching for something more
I’m glad you came home

Cause you belong, you belong where I stand
And you belong, you belong where you stand

We cannot tell everyone I know it’s true
But tell everyone you know
Cause you can hardly see them
I want you to meet them
I want you to love them
I want you to love, I want you to love, I want you to love them…

And tell them they killed your folks
Tell them beneath your sorrow
You keep searching for something more
Than a smile on your face

Cause you belong, you belong where I stand
And you belong, you belong where you stand

We cannot tell everyone I know it’s true
But tell everyone you know
Cause you can hardly see them
I want you to meet them
I want you to love them
I want you to love, I want you to love, I want you to love them…

You can tell everybody
That everyone own the same shadow…
Track Name: Never Told Me
Is this the right time?

You never showed me how.
We can beat these clouds. You never told me, you never told me
I can see it now. But I’m still in doubt. You never told me, you never told me.
I’m Far from shelter, and they're close to me. You never told me.
You never showed me how.
You never said goodbye. You never told me, you never told me.

You can go and try to save me now
You’ve been down, You’ve been down for way too long
You can go, you can go…You can go, you can go…
You can go and try to save the world
You’ve been down, You’ve been down for way too long
You can go, you can go…You can go, you can go…

You can die, don't worry we'll be fine.
and we’ll help mom survive as we try with you by our side.

And all the answers they come close to me. You never told me.
You never showed me how.
You never said goodbye. You never told me, you never told me.

You can go and try to save me now
You’ve been down, You’ve been down for way too long
You can go, you can go…You can go, you can go…

You can go and try to save the world
You’ve been down, You’ve been down for way too long
You can go, you can go…You can go, you can go…

You can die, don't worry we'll be fine.
and we’ll help mom survive as we try with you by our side.

You can go and try to save me now
You’ve been down, You’ve been down for way too long
You can go, you can go…You can go, you can go…

You can go and try to save the world
You’ve been down, You’ve been down for way too long
You can go, you can go…You can go, you can go…
Track Name: Beat the Clock
Back then, when we started
This wasn't a puzzle
We come and go, getting further from home
We should slow down, we took the wrong way
And change it all we earned a small break.

But do we have the time…
You know we don’t.

Looking back from the outset
Life hadn't taken it toll on us
So much time was spent , just to catch your smile
And now were lost, we lost the whole game
Let's take a walk why don't we slip away

But do we have the time…
You know we don’t.

Like that, we decided
We should wait to live our lives out
It was right in front of us, but we passed our turn
Now look aside, we took the wrong way
Let's change it all we earned a small break.

Why don't we slip away
Why don't we slip away

But do we have the time…
You know we don’t.
Track Name: You Came Along
You came along, and you don’t know.
You helped me carry the weight of what I’ve been through.
You’ve made me strong but you don’t know,
You helped me find a way to love what I do.

Everything feels better when it's done with you.
There’s a missing flavor when I’m not by you.
Everything was bitter before I met you.
I don’t know how you do this.

Have you ever felt like you where always on my mind?
Have you ever felt like you where always on my mind?

You came along, and we both know.
You should be running away but you don’t want to.
Never let me down when I was stuck.
No words can explain how much I love you.

Everything feels better when it's done with you.
There’s a missing flavor when I’m not by you.
Everything was bitter before I met you.
I don’t know how you do this.

Can you feel like you are always on my mind?
Can you feel like you are always on my mind?

You believe, you believe in us, your eyes never hide a doubt.
I believe, you’re just pure happiness living like you are a child.
I just need, I just need you to stay with me , I can’t stay alone.
I’m sure you feel the same, hooooo I can’t stay alone.
you know I can read your mind.

Hoooouuu you know I can read your mind.

You came along, and you don’t know.
You helped me carry the weight of what I’ve been through.

You’ve made me strong but you don’t know,
You helped me find a way to love what I do.

Everything feels better when it's done with you.
There’s a missing flavor when I’m not by you.
Everything was bitter before I met you.
I don’t know how you do this.

Can you feel like you are always on my mind?
Can you feel like you are always on my mind?
Track Name: We Ain't Down
You pretend to be clever, Ho you, you’re so worthless.
We’ve been doing it wrong we couldn’t see anything at all.
And if we had it all, would it still be tearing us apart.

Bring me back to you
Ho Back to you
Get Back to you
Bring me back to you
Ho Back to you
Get Back to you

We ain’t down you know
We ain’t down you know
There’s nothing you can do.

You pretend to be clever, Ho you, you are so worthless.
Me I am scared of you, we both need each other.
We’ve been doing it wrong we couldn’t see anything at all.
And if we had it all, would it still be tearing us apart.

Bring me back to you
Ho Back to you
Get Back to you
Bring me back to you
Ho Back to you
Get Back to you

We ain’t down you know
We ain’t down you know
There’s nothing you can do.
Track Name: Still Fighting Monsters
You’re coming around after all, wish that I forgot.
You better run after all, I won’t let you apologies.
