Track Name: The Beginning
Let me show you

The real me

The things underneath that people don't see

Let's connect at another level

And reflect about these clever expositions we're creating

And how it's simply complicating my mind

Like a child who hasn't gotten fed

With any kind of helpful knowledge yet

Or the realities of ups and downs

Or all the clowns who only wanna f- around



Are you ready for life

For your s- to get real

Full of obstacles of altitudes too high to see past clearly

Are you ready for life

For the world to see

You unlock the potential of your mind with me



And under everything

There is the same thing

Throughout all the world emotions aren't changing

Emotions are a constant but we don't understand them

We're trying to plan perfect maps of human brain scans

But in the end the problem isn't matched

Instead of fashion we should crave compassion



I've spun a reel of my life 

Over and over again, creating

Inspiration through exasperation 

Of the brain waves I'm making in this last heat of day, and

I'm trying to realize what real life will be like

I'm trying to speak

But I can't get the beat right



Are you ready for life

For your s- to get real

Full of obstacles of altitudes too high to see past clearly

Are you ready for life

For the world to see

You unlock the potential of your mind with me



Are you ready for life

For this to get real

Full of obstacles of altitudes too high to see past clearly

Are you ready for life

For the world to see

You unlock the potential of your mind with me


Track Name: Just Another Day
Just another day
Staring into space
As I walk by this old man’s porch
Where he’s just whistling away.
I stop and stare his way,
Force a smile upon my face
He stops and looks and asks me
Darling, are you okay?
And I say

Well right now I’m just playin with the days
That fly right past my eyes
Still trying to find
What makes me naturally high

And I said
Here’s the thing I think I lack direction.
Everything is a constant inflection, cuz
Who I thought I’d be just isn’t me
And who I am today I’m sure will change

And that’s why now I’m just playin with the days
That fly right past my eyes
Still trying to find
What makes me naturally high

Oooh, ooh, yeah

And he said
Follow the wings of the things that make you sing
Follow your heart until you start to feel
That smile creep up on your face
And feel that feeling that you can’t replace
He said listen, what would you die without in your life?
And I said you’re right, I’ve got so much time to decide
But I think I feel that smile inside

Oooh, ooh, yeah

So right now I’m still playin with the days
That fly right past my eyes
Still trying to find
What makes me oh just, just what makes me
And right now I’m still playin with the days
That fly right past my eyes
But I’ve known this entire time
What makes me naturally
Just me.

Oooh, ooh, yeah
Track Name: Take Me Home ft. Sam Pirruccello
What if I told you
I was leaving you today?
Would you follow me and call my name
Or say I was the one who got away?

And what would’ve happened
If a couple factors changed?
There were never any doubts at stake
And no one was to blame,
Would this be different?
Could this be different?

Take me home
And hold me close
Before I lose control
From what I think I know
Just take me home (take me home)
Don’t let me go.

And after that show when you pulled
The flower from my hair
You had a real one to give me but I
Said I didn’t care
Cuz I was too distracted by
All the times you made me cry
But I couldn’t help letting you back in when I
Looked into your eyes, so

Take me home
And hold me close
Before I lose control
From what I think I know

I think I know
Take me home
I wont let go,
Just don’t let go.

Take me home
And hold me close
Before I lose control
From what I think I know
Just take me home
Hold me close
Take me home
Track Name: Cause & Effect
Don’t you see,
You’re so pretty
In every single way.
You don’t believe it,
But people can see it
Even under your painted face

And every single monotonous day
You pray that things will change
But you can’t keep doing the same old thing
And think that things will just get different

Oh no, oh…

And I’ve watched you grow up
From just a little child
You were shy and pretty kind
But life didn’t give you the lemons you had in mind
So you lost yourself
In another world
And your reality is put on hold
And you’re only trying to fit some mold

But every single monotonous day
You pray that things will change
But you can’t keep doing the same old thing
And think that things will just get different

Oh no, oh…

Now I can finally see you getting on your feet,
And looking for the biggest tree to climb
To find the fruits that you need to feel good inside.
And now you get it, there’re bumps ahead
But situations concentrate on cause & effect.
You’ve paid it forward
to clear the guilty debt from your head.

Cuz every single monotonous day
You’ve prayed that things would change
And maybe you learned the hard way
But that’s a game that we all play

Oh oh, oh…
