Track Name: Scars Of Youth
There's so much more that I can give
And I may never reach the end, alive and well
And its all because of no half measures

What if we just dont need it
What if its all just bullshit
What if the lives we are leading
Are not lives we want to live
Can we break out from this
Endless stream of bills and stress
I know i've got this in me
I feel it bursting out of my chest

*And I know, that youthful glow I used to know
Has burned a bright red scar into my throat
And its not that I try too hard
I just care so much more

But you cant leave me to it
No, I need you here with me
You cant trust me with it
You see the things that I dont see
Your here to keep me grounded
Keep me focused on whats right
To tell me when im failing
And pick me up for my next fight

*
There's so much more that I can give
And I may never reach the end, alive and well
And its all because of no half measures
I cant do anything unless I feel the notes and bleed out the words
But its the only thing I know
And it will remain until the end
Track Name: Salt Your Wounds
Falling down as a kid you get right back up
You dont want your friends to know, that it stings more than you could show
Broken down as a man you dont think you can
Ever let your best friends know, that this shit is eating your soul

I can show you things that have hurt me
I can let you hear a thousand songs that will cheer me up
And some that describe how I feel
And I can write down words that are real
But its just so hard, to look in your eyes
To explore those big beautiful eyes, while trying to tell you
I have not beaten this, it has not died


Shards of my heart, littered like shrapnel in my chest
Feign from the pain, but still cant lay it to rest
Is this how the movie ends? Trying to teach a broken heart to bend
"Find what you love and let it kill you
Find what you love and let it kill, you" *


I can show you an incredible sunrise
And I can take you to the coldest graveside
But I cannot explain, which one comforts me
No, I could never say, which one is killing me
Is it the beauty, or the tragedy
Or is there beauty in tragedy?


* this line is a Charles Bukowski quote
Track Name: Castle Rock Cobras
To our fathers, mothers, sisters and brothers
To every single soul we call a friend
To siblings, relations, the base of my foundations
Im calling out a toast before the end

At any moment, all of this just goes away
At any moment, I lose the chance I need to say
At any moment, you could be torn from me
No second chance to let you see, im so proud of you and I love you so

To the nights lost, regrets, failures and lost bets
To every glass I raised right next to you
To laughter, the best times, white lies and small crimes
To you always backing up the shit I do


And if you need to go before me, I`ll dwell on the strength I learned from you
Your courage, your guidance, is what will see me through
And when we meet again my friend, our smiles will fill the room
Cos I am only truly me, when Im with you

Calling out a toast before the end x3

At any moment, all of this just goes away
At any moment, I lose the chance I need to say
At any moment, you could be torn from me
No second chance to let you see, im so proud of you and I love you so
And I never want to see you go
So for this moment we are here, come afternoon drinking with me

I hope we never separate but I know we will
I cant think about those things it just kills
These days, these memories must see me through
But I will be, just a shade of me, without you.
Track Name: Into The Night
This is it
Reaching out to find a way
I could never hide my heart or the things I had to say
Maybe, I grew up too fast
But summers never last
Trying to step forward but still stuck in the past

Standing, holding onto pictures
Drinking home made mixtures
Trying anything that might take the pain away, even for today
But I know, All I do and all I try
All the nights I wonder why
All the weary bloodshot eyes
May never make me realise

I take the hardest road
Its just the way I always go
And so I go, and I go alone
And I take all the pain I`ve ever known

Praying, but given up on scriptures
Still drinking home made mixtures
Trying anything that might take the pain away, even for today
But I know, All I do and all I try
All the nights I wonder why
May never make me realise

I take the hardest road
Its just the way I always go
I cant be lost because I know
Behind me lies my way home
Track Name: Bright Hearts Burning
It will come as a pleasant reminder, of better days and times gone past
When you never thought of consequences, or ever hesitated to be yourself
No matter what the cost, its better to have tried and lost
But we were never lost, and you knew if you had an even shot
That you had the heart to carry on, carry on

Set fire to each new day, no matter what your head says, cos bright hearts burn out slow. As I kid I didnt care at all I just carried on, and yeah I guess years and years of that may slow you down, but carry on, carry on

The letters unopened, the true thoughts unspoken
And the heart I thought I always had I could never show to you
By the fading light of a summers night, am I going out without a fight?
I dont know what im supposed to do

Firelighting without matches, cos I know what your heart is, the brightest burning light. Illuminate the darkest paths and we`ll follow on, and years and years from now when your light dims, we`ll bring you in, we`ll bring you in

The letters are open, the true thoughts are spoken
And the heart I thought I always had I can finally show to you
By the fading light of a summers night, im not going out without a fight
I know now what im supposed to do

Every day that im waking up safe, means I wasted yesterday
I wanna feel love, I wanna feel hurt, I want the bruises and the dirt
I wanna know that i`ve aged, and grown, dont wanna get there without feeling old, I want the cuts and I want the scars, I want to reconstruct my heart

Most days, im served a reminder of the first time my burning heart dimmed
And while I`ll never die without, I know without any doubt
That nothing burns as bright, as the most beautiful light going out
