Track Name: Move It or Lose It
"Never learned to mind your manners,
Could you keep down the noise?!"
Well, Mr. Man, now understand that I'mma give you a choice.
YEAH!
Turn around or play a sound, make some use and rejoice.
Ohhhhh
"I'll get it out, get it loud, may just raise up my voice!"
YEAH!

I heard you're hiding out
I'll make you move it now
I bet you feel it,
Something strange coming on.
You know you're wired now
To go and groove it out
I bet you feel it,
Something strange coming on

"Had enough of having nothing,
nothing at all,
I could've caught it had I known right from the beginning,
Had I known then what I know now,
I would have swayed a different way,
Made a bigger change,
But I know, I know, I know
where to go when the weight of the world is feeling heavy
and my burning will is giving out,
I've got an outlet with you right here
I feel something strange
Coming on."

ooooooo
Track Name: Little Place
Found a little place where I live,
Gonna be a big star,
Someday.
Found a little place,
where I live,
Gonna be a big star,
Someday.

Na Na Na Na
OHHHH

I don't really want to but I will
Cycle through my friends to know what's real
I don't really care to but I steal
I don't really want to but I feel.

And what would you say,
If I told you about my life?
Gossip and here-say could not relay
All my strife
To garner your bouquet,
You must first be faced with the knife.

Found a little place where I live,
Gonna be a big star,
Someday.
Everyone I know calls their dibs,
They're gonna be a big star,
Someday.

I don't really want to but I feel.
Track Name: Shake the Shadow
When'd the going get so rough?
What'd you do to jade and numb your feeling?
Maybe you could make those cuffs break.
When'd you go and get so lost?
What'd it take to make your thoughts stray
To places that'd make your faith fade?
I can see the mess they've made,
I can could go and say it's hopeless,
Taking all the pain and wait to detonate till you blow.


I stick around a sec and see the sun is getting low
It's setting down but I, I think I already know
The creatures crawling and they're crying "Hahahaha,
we'll take you round and flip you upside down inside out"
The shade is shifting swiftly surely it should never slow
It takes you down but I, I think I'm ready to grow
I'm thinking now you're sick and sinking "Ahhhhhh"
I look around, and I, I think I'm ready to goooo


Can't shake the shadow
Don't let it hang where you know
You know it goes where you glow.
This light is shallow
But I can feel it all this time
And and it feels
Like those gallows
Are wearing thin and I'm on my way
as I make my way
Though the blaze
This light it hallows
And I'm amazed at the maze we made

Bridge:
Ahhhh ahh ah ahhhhh

*instrumental*


Chorus 2:
Can't shake the shadow
Don't let it hang where you know
You know it goes where you glow.
This light is shallow
But I can feel it all this time
And and it feels
Like those gallows
Are wearing thin and I'm on my way
as I make my way
Though the blaze
This light it hallows
And I'm amazed at the maze we made.
Track Name: inD
Days can end before they break,
Something's making hard to perpetuate,
This feeling's coming on.
Dare me to be wrong? But I know I'm
Dreading common place
'cause I don't belong,
Headin from the States
And it won't be long,
Because I want it all.
Dare to live like that I swear,
I got this compass in my pocket
And no place to go,
I think it's best I try my luck
Off of the western coast,
'Cause if I saw it all,
You wouldn't stare
And wonder why I'm dreamin'.
Waiting for a wave
to make its way off shore,
To take this ticking time I've wasted
Towards the way of the storm,
'Cause if I knew it all,
I wouldn't waste a day while I'm still breathin'.


Fear beyond the water
Makes it harder
To sink in bliss.
Steer me
Without bother
Let me wander to far places.
Veer the
Chance of charter
And you'll fall far from the brink and slip.
So hear me,
As the martyr,
As the wanderer of far places.


I spent my precious time,
And I bought what I want to do.
You dreamt and made it in your mind,
I got up while you hit snooze.

Wake up
Don't dream it
Life could be yours if you start to believe it.
So stay up
Go breach it
Peak to the ledge if you stretch you can reach it!


What's been calling does it speak and surround you?
Whats the cause of all these sounds that astound you?
What's the cost of all this doubt that confounds you?
What's been stopping ship from all this life around you?
What's appalling from the want for more?

I'm here now
To stay
I'm here now
to stay


Hey
When'd you get so down?
I could lift you up
Make you free from
sticking to sinking ground
Let you see this love
Let me show you how
I found
This life here now
Without fear to stay.

What I say is what I mean
Don't you hear it?
What I live is what I breathe
Can't you feel it?
What I see is clear to me
Don't believe it?

Then how,
About
Being here now
Without fear
To stay?
