Jake Friedrich I was lucky enough to play with this band for their first show. Needless to say, every time I've seen them since, I've been blown away. Hoping to see them again sometime very soon! Favorite track: Supéro.

Track Name: Closure
If these walls could speak, I'd dread the sound
cause it's all too quiet when you're not around.
Wherever you are, can you hear me now?
I hope you're proud.
Track Name: Lions, Tigers and Bears
"It's a dog eat dog world" he said.
"Better get out while you can or this world will eat you alive."
In a world i've grown to love, passion's the only way that you'll survive.
So fight for your life.
Now here's a question: What's hidden behind the hymns that our heart's beat along too?

I'll fight for this
I'll stand behind this
Cause what the hell is music anymore?
I'll fight for this
I'll stand behind this
You better know what you're fighting for.

Now you say you wanna change the world, but recently it's just been changing you
I won't let myself fall victim too another heartless melody
that sounds a lot like mal intent.

I'll fight for this
I'll stand behind this
Cause what the hell is music anymore?
I'll fight for this
I'll stand behind this
You better know what you're fighting for

This world will make you break you
It'll tear you apart
Just don't lose sight

What the hell is music?
What the hell is music anymore?

I'll fight for this
I'll stand behind this
Cause what the hell is music anymore?
I'll fight for this
I'll stand behind this
You better know what you're fighting for
Track Name: "Loneliness Is Underrated" (Feat Jeremy Richardson)
So take it back in time
you had me going crazy in my own mind.
Asking why did it get to this?

I thought we did it right
You said we'd be fine
But I was a fool, you made it a game
I could't wait to play
Place your heart on the line
with good intentions, right?
& Now i'm losing control of what I thought I knew
You made me question who I was

I watched you give up on me
I won't wait for 'sorry'
i've had enough shame for the fool that I was made
But what to do when all the walls are closing in, Do I run away just to let you win?
I won't let it get to this

It was just a game
Take back every word you said that you used as your alibi
to hide the truth and play the victim one more time
Feeling sorry for yourself wasn't enough
You made me question who I was

I watched you give up on me
I won't wait for 'sorry'
I've had enough shame for the fool that I was made
But what to do when all the walls are closing in, Do I run away just to let you win?
I won't let it get to this

When you laid rest in this bed
you knew the way's you'd fuck with my head
These sheet's were made with lies & regrets
You're the type of face I'd love to forget

You've got a handgun loaded with excuses & it's pointed right at my head
but I don't think you have the nerve to pull the trigger

Why put the blame on me?
Was I not all I was supposed to be?
Please take this for what it is
I hope you feel sorry for all of this

After all we've been through & all i've said
I'd love to hear you say 'you deserve this'

Are you hurting?
Was it worth it?
I know you deserve this
It was just a game, this wasn't my intent
I know you deserve this
Track Name: John Doe
Saying nothing was your best bet
Your actions said enough
So go ahead & give up something for someone who did nothing for you
& after everything, Im sorry to say kid
You let me down
I still see the light you never saw in yourself
but it's burning out
You're wearing down
but don't give up

I know you're afraid to be alone
& I can tell where your heart is
Isn't 23 too young to give up now?
Do you know who you are when this world get's too much to bear?

So don't count your losses yet
Don't burn your bridges when there's a hand reaching out to guide you
Loosen up the rope that's kept you tied down & see where this world will take you
& after everything, Im sorry to say
You let me down, you're wearing out
but you don't have to fall

I know you're afraid to be alone
& I can tell where you're hear it
Isn't 23 too young to give up now?
Do you know who you are when this world get's too much to bear?

This is the beginning, it's not the end
Open up your eyes & see beyond C-Street
Track Name: Supéro
Stay afloat when the weight of the world get's too much
When you're falling, pick yourself back up

Distance was never the issue
feeling distant was
Are you here?
Cause you've been gone for too long
It just seem's like I'm in the wrong place at the right time
swimming with the currents, taken by the tides
What I would give if I could feel you here
Guide me, I need you now

I'm reaching out for you but the distance seem's to be too much
cause I can't always be that strong on my own
When the weight of the world get's too much
lift me up with hope that I'll figure this out
I swear this can't be all there is
There's more I've been waiting for

With every word you become farther
With every fall I feel smaller
I've been my own weakness for far too long
& an outcast in my own mind
I know there's more than this
Open your eye's
Realize it's up to you to choose to grow from this
To the mistakes I've made, for when I fall
When weakness feel's stronger than strength:
Remember that "nothing worth having come's easy." Thats what you said to me
So i'll learn from every failure I've had
cause I know I am stronger than that

I'll stand tall & wear my failures on my sleeve
Cause that's what made me who I am
If you could see me now, I think that you'd be proud
So i'll keep pushing to better myself
I'll do this for you

If these wall's could speak, I'd dread the sound
cause It's all too quiet when you're not around
Wherever you are, Can you hear me now?
I hope that you're proud
Just tell me you're proud of me now
