Track Name: Brick Wall
Brick Wall

My eyes are heavy, my heart is black
These shades of grey keep repeating back
Its like I'm staring at a brick wall
I aint getting I aint getting no where
Staring at a brick wall
I aint getting I aint getting no where

Do ya feel me?
Do ya know what I say
When I say I feel like I cant catch a break
Do ya feel me?
Do ya know what I say eh eh eh eh
I feel so lonely
I feel so lonely
(oo oo)

I've seen the door shuttin in my face
I've felt the pain of an empty space
It's like I'm staring at a brick wall
I aint getting I aint getting no where
Staring at a brick wall
I aint getting I aint getting no where

Do ya feel me?
Do ya know what I say
When I say I feel like I cant catch a break
Do ya feel me?
Do ya know what I say eh eh eh eh
I feel so lonely
(I'm lonely lonely
I'm lonely lonely)
I feel so lonely
(I'm lonely lonely
I'm lonely lonely)
(oo oo)
Track Name: Quicksand
Quicksand

Big guns shoot high (pow)
Big mouth tonight
Its high tide come drown
This coffin is six feet down

I got a feelin that I started up the animal
Cut me up like hot shit cannibal
Put it up put it up put it up now
Put it up put it up put it up now

I feel myself sinkin I'm suffocating
Am I gone die in the quicksand
I feel my mind racing, I'm anticipating
Am I gone rise from the quicksand
I feel myself sinkin I'm suffocating
Am I gone die in the quicksand
I feel my mind racing, I'm anticipating
Am I gone rise from the quicksand

Am I gone die?
Am I gone die?

Hot bombs implode
Got dirt that I swallow
White noise buzzin (buzzin)
I see the devil comin (It's comin, It's comin)

I got a feelin that I started up the animal
Cut me up like hot shit cannibal
Put it up put it up put it up now
Put it up put it up put it up now

I feel myself sinkin I'm suffocating
Am I gone die in the quicksand
I feel my mind racing, I'm anticipating
Am I gone rise from the quicksand
I feel myself sinkin I'm suffocating
Am I gone die in the quicksand
I feel my mind racing, I'm anticipating
Am I gone rise from the quicksand

Quicksand (Am I gone rise?)
Quicksand (Am I gone die?)
Quicksand (Am I gone rise?)
Quicksand Quicksand (Hey Hey)

I feel myself sinkin I'm suffocating
Am I gone die in the quicksand
I feel my mind racing, I'm anticipating
Am I gone rise from the quicksand
I feel myself sinkin I'm suffocating
Am I gone die in the quicksand
I feel my mind racing, I'm anticipating
Am I gone rise from the quicksand
Track Name: Fuck You (I'll Still Love You)
Fuck You (I'll Still Love You)

I'll still love you
Even though you kick me down, kick me down
You know I'm gonna get up
I'll still love you
Even though you kick me down, kick me down
You know I'm gonna get up

Fuck you for taking every piece of me
Every ounce of my time and my energy
I lose sleep, I go crazy, you make it hard
But make it look so easy
In you, I keep losing my identity
I been caught in the waves of chemistry
Remedy, its what I need
Cause you are the force of this pain and misery

I dont understand it, how you could leave me stranded
Standing empty handed
I swallow your pill and then you make me choke
I feel like a joke, clinging to your hope
Its stupid, stupid, stupid
Whatcha doin doin to me, to me
Every time I come around you spit in my face

But I'll still love you
Even though you kick me down, kick me down
You know I'm gonna get up
I'll still love you
Even though you kick me down, kick me down
You know I'm gonna get up
(I'll still love you, even though you kick me down, kick me down
You know I'm gonna get up)

Fuck you for leaving me broken
Out in the cold alone till I'm frozen
Holding my tongue is outspoken
Everything of mine, you took its all stolen

Fuck you I gotta be honest
You put me through the hardest times
You make me cry, you bring tears to my eyes
Still you are the blood that I need to survive

It's not how I planned it, you can be so demanding
Standing empty handed
I swallow your pill and then you make me choke
I feel like a joke, clinging to your hope
Its stupid, stupid, stupid
Whatcha doin doin to me, to me
Every time I come around you spit in my face

But I'll still love you
Even though you kick me down, kick me down
You know I'm gonna get up
I'll Still Love You
Even though you kick me down, kick me down
You know I'm gonna get up
But I'll still love you
Even though you kick me down, kick me down
You know I'm gonna get up
I'll Still Love You
Even though you kick me down, kick me down
You know I'm gonna get up
Track Name: Castle In The Cloud
Castle In The Cloud

Them lists, them plans didn't work out
Back to the drawing board
Dust off that dirt from your hands
Diggin for something, diggin for nothin

Life's like the chase after it rains
Rainbows are just an illusion
To cling to, to sing to
Diggin for something, diggin for nothin

Won't you take away the pain
Bring the storm and let it rain
Wash it all away
Built a castle in the cloud
And the bricks are coming down
Starting over again, again, again
Starting over again

I've lost, I've walked through the jungle
Been bitten by countless things
I keep going just off pure hunger
Diggin for something diggin for nothin

Can't change the cards you've been handed
But you can use your eyes
This world can be so demanding
Diggin for something diggin for nothin

Won't you take away the pain
Bring the storm and let it rain
Wash it all away
Built a castle in the cloud
And the bricks are coming down
Starting over again, again, again
Starting over again

You're up in the clouds
You're up in the clouds
You're up in the clouds
I wanna touch you
You're up in the clouds
You're up in the clouds
You're up in the clouds
I wanna touch you

Won't you take away the pain
Bring the storm and let it rain
Wash it all away
Built a castle in the cloud
And the bricks are coming down (It's coming down down down down)
Starting over again, again, again (It's coming down)
Starting over again
(Starting over, starting over yeah)
(You know I wanna touch you, I wanna feel you baby)
(Are you real? Or just a castle in the cloud?)
(Are you real? Are you real? You're just a castle in the cloud)
(Are you real? You know I wanna touch you, I wanna feel you, you, yeah, yeah yeah)
Track Name: For A Minute There
For A Minute There

Let's just pretend until you cash in
That gold chasing aint worth nothin
I put on that hat, did that song and dance
Who was I kidding it never would last (mmm)
Who was I kidding it never would last (mmm)
I know that I am much more than that

Be naked give me the truth behind your little lies
That friction it burns you the longer you're in disguise

I lost myself for a minute there
But I'm back for good
I love myself now and forever
Just like I should, just like I should (For A Minute There)
Just like I should, just like I should (For A Minute There)

Gotta pick up the pace, got lost in the race
I couldnt even recognize my face
It got out of hand and stuck sand
I just got burried in the aftermath
I just got burried in the aftermath
I know that I am much more than that

Be naked give me the truth behind your little lies
That friction it hurts you the longer you're in disguise

I lost myself for a minute there
But I'm back for good
I love myself now and forever
Just like I should, just like I should (For A Minute There)
Just like I should, just like I should (For A Minute There)

Its hard to face the truth thats inside you
You cant cover it up you just gotta let it out

I lost myself for a minute there
I lost myself for a minute there

I lost myself for a minute there
But I'm back for good
I love myself now and forever
Just like I should, just like I should (For A Minute There)
Just like I should, just like I should (For A Minute There)
oo yeah, yeah
Baby dont hide, baby dont lie to me
Baby dont hide, baby dont lie to me
Track Name: DNA
DNA

I've been tip toeing round the clock
I can't seem to stop it's like I've been
Cheating on my heart (my heart)
I'm blowing in the wind like a feather
That's lost its way to the ground
I'm falling apart

Don't look down
Close your eyes now babe (babe)
Let the truth
Come back to you (come back to you)

There's nothing in this world like you
Your DNA is proof (proof)
There's nothing in this world like you
You're special baby (You're special babe)
Don't you ever forget that (forget that)
Like flashes of light
Sometimes I feel blind
To everything that surrounds me (surrounds me)
Under the knife till I can't recognize
The times I've lied
I've stopping counting

Don't look down (don't look down)
Close your eyes now babe (babe)
Let the truth
Come back to you (come back to you)

There's nothing in this world like you
Your DNA is proof (proof)
There's nothing in this world like you
You're special baby
Don't you ever forget that

Machine Gun

Strike me like lightning
A thunder roll shakin up my bones (oh)
You think you're the boss in control (no)
You lost your mind you're stoned (cold)

Put me on trial, testing my survival
I've had my share of crying
But I got no time for whining
I never stop fighting, I put my time in

You're like a machine gun
Open fire, ba ba bang bang

Cut through the skin I pierce ears
Bring the emotion, tears, fears
Break through I'm a pioneer, here (yup)

And when you give me tribulations (hey hey)
I'll give you dedication
Cause I'm here to stay if you get in my way
Imma be here till you move

Woo oo woo oo
Just like that, I'm steady I'm ready
If you bite me, I bite back
I can be a lady or a bitch turned black (bitch turned black)

Track Name: Nothin Ain't What It Seems
Nothin Aint What It Seems

I finally found the river that I was meant to flow in
Can't tell you how good it feels, it's like I'm free falling
I touched that star sunk to the clouds
I climbed that hill then I turned around

Cause nothin aint what it seems (no)
Nothin aint what it seems (no)

I finally found the secret power I've inside me
It's been there all along no one can take it from me
I lift that veil from off my face
I see the truth my saving grace

Cause nothin aint what it seems (no)
Nothin aint what it seems (no)
Cause nothin aint what it seems (no)
Nothin aint what it seems (no)
Nothin aint what it seems

Track Name: Pink Balloon
Pink Balloon

Sometimes I get weak
Sometimes I can't sleep
Poison in my viens
Coming over me

Sometimes I feel empty
Like a hollowed out tree
Waiting to fall down
Without a sound

Ah, ah
Ah, ah

Inside me is a sad song
That I sing to no one at all
Nobody nobody nobody
Inside me is a sad song
That I sing to no one at all
Nobody nobody nobody

Ah, ah

Sometimes I give up
Holding on to love
So I can be attached to nothin
And no one
Free me like a child
Frees a pink balloon
Float me to the sky
To kiss the sunlight

Ah, ah
Ah, ah

Inside me is a sad song
That I sing to no one at all
Nobody nobody nobody
Inside me is a sad song
That I sing to nobody, nobody
Nobody nobody nobody
Nobody at all
Nobody nobody nobody
Nobody
Nobody

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah (mm)
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah (mm)
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Nobody nobody nobody
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
