Track Name: Loner
I have no idea where I'm going
so I asked the loner down the street
where I'm supposed to go
only to find out that he's only
a reflection
of my old self.

Still alone.
Still alone.

I find myself looking back
and realizing that childhood dreams
can still come true
even at 22.
Track Name: Sundown
The sundown proves
that there is an end
that we can all look forward to.
My life is better than this.
My life is better than this
and I know I can be somebody.

Sadness doesn't have a place in my heart
because I've been blessed
all through out this life.
I'm not a burden.
I'm not a burden.

I'll drown this miserable day
with these frustrated melodies
in my head.
My life is better than this
and I know I can be somebody.
Track Name: Aurora St.
I never got sick
of translating
nuances of sound and wheels
into something
that kept me in check.

If you need me
I'll be in Aurora St.
Making my own way
with my own hands and say.
It's a hard life to live
but at least I'll stay true to myself.

People tell me
to live a normal life.
To be the things I don't believe in.
Don't fix me I ain't broke.
Don't write me off I ain't done yet.
Track Name: Regret
I don't regret this life I lead.
Track Name: Chaser
I'm tired
of the self-pity
and the lack of direction
that seems to come my way.
On most days of the week
I'm pretty sure
that I've been this way for awhile now
and that's okay.

We give chase to sadness
but this time I'll stand still.

There are days that
even home feels foreign to me
and I'm not quite sure
if its the placement of the leaves
or the feel of the concrete
when I fall down.
Then again,
the last thing I want
is to be complacent.

We give chase to sadness
but this time I'll stand still.
Let it sink in
and move on.
Track Name: Lead
I always thought progress
was a young boy
making his way in life.
Stumbling and crying
on his way,
thinking that
everyday would be a step ahead.

I don't regret this life I lead.

In between northern lights
and modern life
I'm there walking alone
because the path to finding myself
is the loneliest path
I'll ever take.
Track Name: Outsider
The rooms in this place
gets colder
as the setting sun
leaves a mark
on my tired heart.

I've grown to hate this place
and every damn day
it gets harder and harder
to find the reasons to call it home.

Home has nothing else to offer me
because I can't seem to abide
by the standard rules
of everyday life.

I have nowhere else to be
but at least my feet
are still ready and willing
to walk and to find out
that maybe there is a home for me.
Track Name: Spokes
I rode my bike again tonight
and it's kept me sane so far
but I'm wondering
how long I can keep this up.

My sweaty hands
are making
me lose my grip
and I've still
got a long way to go.
Track Name: Enough
I used to wake up in the mornings
with somber thoughts
on the day ahead of me.
So it went on for a year or two
so I told myself that...

I got tired of writing all these sad songs
because I realized I wasn't born to see myself fail.
I got tired of writing all these sad songs.

I used to carry fake smiles
in my bag
and put them out
when I'd see someone I know.
So I told myself that...

I got tired of writing all these sad songs
because I realized I wasn't born to see myself fail.
I got tired of writing all these sad songs.
Track Name: Last Light
It takes awhile for people to figure out
that youth can only be borrowed
for so long
but that doesn't mean
it'll go away for good.
Growing up to be someone
can't be so bad
if we see it the way
it has to be seen.

I'll walk alone in the meantime
because I don't want anyone else
to be responsible for my mistakes
but I guess life exists to be wrong
and we exist to make it right.

Last light on the long road to home
as I thread slowly
but I can't take my time
as I don't want to spend a lifetime
thinking of what I should be.

Last light on the long road to home.
Track Name: One Day
One day I'll disappear
without remembering who I was with
or where I came from.
One day I'll disappear
because I have taken
more than I can give.

Don't wait up for me,
I'll be gone by then.

One day I'll disappear
and the grit from my hands
will wash away.
One day I'll disappear
because I've had enough of this life.

Don't wait up for me,
I'll be gone by then.

One day I'll disappear
because I'll be a better man by then.
Track Name: Honesty
I always searched for honesty
in the wrong places
and from the wrong people
but I'd like to think
I can find a bit of truth
in what things would like to portray.

I found honesty in my favorite song.
I've never felt better.
Everything's okay.
It always has been.

I left the world
I dreamt
to leave behind.
Change found its way in my pocket.
I'm sure it'll stay with me.
This time I searched for honesty
in the right place.
