Track Name: Kerosene
Sometimes I put myself, underneath the microscope
So I can see all the parts that make me up
Well I don't know if I like what I see

I have to ask myself if it is just biology
My mind will keep me from an apology
My right brain knows but my left just won't let go

You keep looking out for us
And I keep throwing your efforts under the bus
I sabotage the things I love and then when I am done
I carry on, I carry on

Kerosene is a lighter fluid
It only takes one spark to get a fire going
And once it begins it will not end, once it begins it will never

You keep looking out for us
And I keep throwing your efforts under the bus
I sabotage the things I love and then when I am done
I carry on, I carry on

Last night it came to me
That I'm not right, I'm not right
But I won't say it out loud, cause I'm far to proud
I'm far too proud
Track Name: Modern Drugs
This modern drug, it takes you
Too many lights to turn to
It's in your blood
Electric dreams are all you need, you got it so good

You feel, you feel the same
You feel, you feel the same
You feel you are the same

I'm looking ahead

But I just can't see, through all the chemicals
Never enough
Line em' up again

Burn bright, shine for the limelight
Lock in, step to the baseline
We got, we got it all right now
Everybody's singing

We feel, we feel the same
We feel, we feel the same
We feel we are the same

I'm looking ahead

But I just can't see, through all the chemicals
Never enough
Line em' up again
Track Name: Giving Up
Put off your taxes til next week
You put off getting up you hide beneath the sheet
The working week is calling now
So cast aside your dream
You're late again and incomplete
Oh no no no

You can't help but get a bit jealous
Now you see you're not that good
It's too late to hide it
You did all you could
Hard to face the truth the best option
Now for you is giving up
And you tried so hard
You can't blame it on bad luck
Track Name: Keep Running
Slow change, it comes around, it comes around
Then you let it all just fade away
I'm coming up slowly but you
Just keep running on
I can't, let you let your life just fade away

Hold on, you know
You can have it all if you just want it so bad
Come on, let's go
You can have it all if you just want it so bad

But I know that you're afraid of what you need the most
I see that you've been living like a living ghost
And I want you to live
I want you to live

Still frames, they're all the same, they're all the same
You're sitting on the sideline all alone
You're running in circles, I know
Don't you listen to, all the little lies you tell yourself

Come on, let's go
You can have it all if you just want it so bad

But I know that you're afraid of what you need the most
I see that you've been living like a living ghost
And I want you to live
I want you to live
Track Name: No Way
My shoulders are holding too much weight
I think they might break, think they might break
But if I could just get a hand from you
I think I could stand up straight
Taller than the buildings in the city

Don't let my love go away

You'll find a way to make me feel better
You'll find a way no matter what the circumstances are
When times are hard, you're there and you're prepared
When times are not then we enjoy what we got

Don't let my love go away
I won't let my love go away.
I'm not going back, no I'm not going back no way
I'm not going back (no were not going back) no way
Track Name: Ghosts (live)
I don't want to wake up
I don't want to start my day off putting on my makeup
Wear a mask when I'm outside,
Then I come back home and I hang it by my bedside
I know what is waiting there and I know I should not be scared
When the road is overgrown it suffocates my soul

I just want to be with those
Friends and family I love the most
I hug them kiss them hear their jokes
But when they're away they feel like ghosts

I'm gonna save up.
Gonna take a trip to see you bring you flowers on the way up.
I'm in need of a change-up
Waking up every morning with the same bowl of grape-nuts.
I know you are waiting there, I would travel anywhere
But when the road is overgrown it suffocates my soul

I just want to be with those
Friends and family I love the most
I hug them kiss them hear their jokes
But when they're away they feel like ghosts
