1. Alone In a Room
I've been away, a little while; sometimes I just can't help myself
When my mind’s running wild, I seem to lose grip on reality
And I try to disregard the crazy things the voices tell me to do, but it's no use
I tried to own it, write songs about it
Believe me I tried, in the end I needed to breathe
Find inspiration, some kind of purpose
To take a second to face the shit that makes me, me
All I needed was the last thing I wanted
To sit alone in a room and say it all out loud
Every moment, every second, every trespass
Every awful thing, every broken dream
A couple years back and forth with myself in a cage
Banging my head against the wall tryna put words on a page
All I needed was the last thing I wanted
To sit alone in a room, alone in a room
I saw the world a couple times, tried to cure the ache with absence
But that hole was still a hole and my mind kept playing tricks on me
Feeling older every day, took everything I had to not crash and burn, but I'm starting to learn
Sometimes I'll fall down; sometimes I'll lose hope
But those days will be few if I keep my feet on the ground
I might be lonely, but I ain't alone here
So I keep pushing the limits of what makes me
All I needed was the last thing I wanted
To sit alone in a room and say it all out loud
Every moment, every second, every trespass
Every awful thing, every broken dream
A couple years back and forth with myself in a cage
Banging my head against the wall tryna put words on a page
All I needed was the last thing I wanted
To sit alone in a room, alone in a room
I can be better than I was
I can be better than I am
All I needed was the last thing I wanted
To sit alone in a room and say it all out loud
Every moment, every second, every trespass
Every awful thing, every broken dream
A couple years back and forth with myself in a cage
Banging my head against the wall trying to put words on a page
All I needed was the last thing I wanted
To sit alone in a room, alone in a room
2. Into the Fire
I'm not too sure what I'm supposed to do with this

These hands, this mind, this instability
From a cage I created, to a hell that heaven made

Can't let go of the hatred, cause I love the way it tastes

I wouldn't take back a moment, not one miserable moment

I'll give it all, 'til there's nothing
I'd walk into the fire

I've come to terms with the fact I'll never change

And that's just fine, I find solace in the pain
I don't mind the darkness, it's easy on the eyes

I'm praying for something to make me feel alive

I wouldn't take back a moment, not one miserable moment

I'll give it all, 'til there nothing
I'd walk into the fire

I'm a paranoid, sycophant, masochistic dilettante... Narcissistic elephant in the room
I'm the end of the world, thinning the herd, the all around outta my my mind, fucking absurd I am gone, I am gone
3. Hopelessly Hopeful
Staring eyes wide open gazing into nothing, running in place again
Going through the motions, in and out as the oceans, repeating
Numb to the silence, to the absence of emotion, the sum of the script
Nothing but a click in the rotation
Sick of the peace of mind that goes along with keeping on and I can't keep on keeping on
Inside it feels like I'm stuck here, suspended, at best underwhelming, what's wrong with me?
My conscious is calling but the world isn't all it's cracked up to be
I'm hopelessly hopeful
That I'm not stuck here suspended, in a world I pretended was right for me
Strung out on the same old, got an itch for something painful
To feel something real once, to remind myself it’s not in my head
Sick of the calm coinciding with sticking in and with the line, can't keep on keeping on
It all just feels like I'm stuck here, suspended, at best underwhelming, what's wrong with me?
My conscious is calling but the world isn't all it's cracked up to be
I'm hopelessly hopeful
That I'm not stuck here suspended, in a world I pretended was right for me
When I close my eyes
When I leave the light
Inside it feels like I'm stuck here, suspended, at best underwhelming, what's wrong with me?
My conscious is calling but the world isn't all it's cracked up to be
I'm hopelessly hopeful
That I'm not stuck here suspended, in a world I pretended was right for me
4. Where Did It Go?
So you're all stars now?
So you're what's "in" now?
Top of the world now?
So you're the kings?
There's only one throne and I'm not done with it, still shitting, sleeping, eating, breathing it
Then years and you're still hanging on my every word with baited breath
After a decade pushing boundaries, proving impossible possible, making something from nothing, creating "larger than life"
Always rejecting the herd, always ahead of the curve, writing the records your favorite band rip off in their records

You’re all so fucking outrageous, I can't take it
Motherfuckers more than a little complacent
Where did it go? Where did it go so wrong?
Just sit the fuck down, pay attention
There's too much noise, for a second listen
Where did it go? Where did it go so wrong?

There was the first one, the triple gold one, the stole by every fucking band on summer tours one
Then the second one, the living reckless one, the knock the pop stars off the charts one
And the third one, the fuck the world one, the arenas singing every fucking word one
Then was a fourth one, the wasn't me one, the we needed just a little space to breathe one
But now there's this one, the I'm the king one, the I don't care, I'm gonna do my thing one
The breaking every fucking rule in book one
The fuck you all

This shit is fucking outrageous, I can't take it
Motherfuckers more than a little complacent
Where did it go? Where did it go so wrong?
Just sit the fuck down, pay attention
There's too much noise, for a second listen
Where did it go? Where did it go so wrong?

Don’t have to like it, but you can't deny you needed me to show you what comes next
I've set the standard far too high for you to follow me, feel free to try your best

You’re all so fucking outrageous, I can't take it
Motherfuckers more than a little complacent
Where did it go? Where did it go so wrong?
Just sit the fuck down, pay attention
There's too much noise, for a second listen
Where did it go? Where did it go so wrong?
5. Rise Up
Rise up, take back control
I find resolve in the darkest part of my mind I can stand to be inside
I find the light to be a little much at times
But I will rise
I will rise up with the weight of the world
I will rise up from the darkness, purged
Rise up, take back control
I face the truth with a bitterness that won't subside and I face it alone
I'll be the pariah, in your war against yourself
But I will rise
This is product of hatred and anger
A life spent on the outside but I will rise
I will rise up with the weight of the world
I will rise up from the darkness, purged
Rise up, take back control
6. When the Lights Come On
There’s a world passed the curtains of eager excitement
A sea of impatience awaiting incitement
It’s all so enticing, it’s so mesmerizing
It’s so hypnotizing, the rhythmic beguiling
Bring the house down
Breathe in, out
When the lights come on, when the crowd goes wild
Rip the roof up off of here, take it to the stratosphere
Stand up and scream it loud when the fire flies
Rip the roof up off of here, take it to the stratosphere
After sitting and waiting and anticipating
The energy through the walls reverberating
It’s so captivating, the buzz generated
It’s invigorating, I feel elevated
Bring the house down
Breathe in, out
When the lights come on, when the crowd goes wild
Rip the roof up off of here, take it to the stratosphere
Stand up and scream it loud when the fire flies
Rip the roof up off of here, take it to the stratosphere
7. Under Denver
Just wait and see
Just sit and breathe
Your life's unimportant
Your ego's distorted
Just let what is, be
Delusions of control, how's the wool feel
Pre-decision doesn't mean that this is not real
Why throw away what you've been given to spite it
What will be, will be
Children of the world, dream in peace
The fourth will watch over you, sleep and you'll know the truth
Children of the world, dream in peace
Here, rebuild in solitude
Under Denver calling you
You're not alone
Your truth is wrong
It's best to accept it
No sense in resisting
Just let what is, be
Listen, follow orders, buy, consume, sell
Stay on the surface, it's okay to trust the system
Tried and tested, they know best, they know the outcome
What will be, will be
Children of the world, dream in peace
The fourth will watch over you, sleep and you'll know the truth
Children of the world, dream in peace
Here, rebuild in solitude
Under Denver calling you
They're more than we
They hold the keys
They live in the silence
Just offer compliance
And what will be, will be
Children of the world, dream in peace
The fourth will watch over you, sleep and you'll know the truth
Children of the world, dream in peace
Here, rebuild in solitude
Under Denver calling you
8. Vultures
Close the curtains, cash me in
Gather photographs of the devil you let in
Digging deep inside my soul
I don't know where to turn everywhere I look these vultures burn the life right outta me
Do I run, or lay down and die?
Is it time to close my eyes?
Keep me numb, I'll follow direction
A pawn to pass around and be bled until I'm dry
It's hard to see what's underneath, is it me?
Where do I turn? Everywhere I look these vultures burn the life right outta me
Do I run, or lay down and die?
Is it time to close my eyes?
For so long all I've known, all I've seen's green lights
Fuck your greed, all I need's somewhere to catch my breath, rest my head, and ease my mind
I've been holding on but my grip's not what it used to be
I'm much older, I'm bitter, I'm jaded I'm lost
Can somebody give me a sign?
Where do I turn? Everywhere I look these vultures burn the life right outta me
Do I run, or lay down and die?
Is it time to close my eyes?
9. Eve
There's so much wonder here right in front of your eyes
What could it hurt? What's wrong with you? Who the fuck is he? Why can't you know?
The walls came down and the heavens opened
It's too late to claim your innocence once the trust is broken
It was just a little taste, it was so sweet
You couldn't imagine in your wildest dreams
You had to taste it, reach out and take it
For just a second consider why a man who cares so much would keep something so simple, from someone so innocent
Maybe he wants it all for himself 'cause he thinks you don't deserve to feel all the joys that he feels, that you'll never feel
Ask yourself why does he give you less when he takes more
Ask yourself how being free is being locked inside these walls
Maybe you're weak, or a mistake, or too emotional
Maybe you're not good enough for his world, maybe you never were
The walls came down and the heavens opened
It's too late to claim your innocence once the trust is broken
It was just a little taste, it was so sweet
You couldn't imagine in your wildest dreams
You had to taste it, reach out and take it
He'll never know, I'll never tell
You deserve be free
You have my word, damn me to hell
You deserve to know
You deserve to be free
The walls came down and the heavens opened
It's too late to claim your innocence once the trust is broken
It was just a little taste, it was so sweet
You couldn't imagine in your wildest dreams
You had to taste it, reach out and take it
10. I Am One
I could hold you so close and never let you in
I could feel you in my bones and never really feel a thing
You can’t climb inside my soul and hold on forever
I couldn't change if I tried my mind's as the weather
Don’t know what I believe in, who I believe in anymore
I know that I’m broken, it’s the road that I’ve chosen to walk alone
I could hold you so close
I could hold you so close and never let you in
Alone among numbers
Scream back at the thunder
I learned from the start that all I had was me
I am as one, the father and the son
I am one
You couldn't believe the fires that I've walked through, the shit I've that overcome
I've never needed you
Taught me from the beginning the only one to believe in is myself, so I left and became the wind
I can't be left if I'm alone
I can't be pulled down if I don't hold on
Alone among numbers
Scream back at the thunder
I learned from the start that all I had was me
I am as one, the father and the son
I am one
I don't need your love
I don't want your love
I am one
Again and again I repeat and explain am I fucking insane?
It's like the words coming out just don't seem to sink in
I am one
Alone among numbers
Scream back at the thunder
I learned from the start that all I had was me
I am as one, the father and the son
I am one
11. Empire (feat. Bingx)
They tell me life is short
In the blink of an eye we come and die
Keep it in mind that life is war
Stay grounded, fly and soar
Always know what you fighting for
Aging fast, gotta pave a path and go figure out what my life is for
Quick witted and everyday I gotta switch lanes
Fuck race, no pigment
I got thick skin, making big waves
Positive being positive is my legacy
Pray for me, or make way for me
Because I’m setting out to go change the earth, and I just may
My life is was I call it, and I call it successful
Now everybody wanna eyeball it, like “how the fuck he do that though?”
Take pride in your every action
Everyday of my life is work
They say time is money and I know what that time is worth
Even if the sky was falling down
Even if the sky was falling, I’m not falling down
I stand tall through it all, I’ve risked too much to just give up now
I’m pushing on through
Sure as the tide rolls in at night
I'll still be here at the of days screaming at the sky
Let the fire consume and cleanse what's before me
Behold, I'll build my empire before the ashes hit the ground
Life inside a piece of paper, live it through my pen and pad
Lead inside my pencil like the hammer on my pistol back
There ain't no hitting back
Life it ain't no tennis match
All over the net but that ain't where I do business at
Face to face with adversity and intimidation
This is real, this is raw, ain't no imitation
No limitations ain't a ceiling in sight
There ain't no rules or regulations either yield or you fight
Just take a look at where I been that's some appealing advice
‘Cause you can build until it falls or keep it real and you rise
Even if the sky was falling down
Even if the sky was falling, I’m not falling down
I stand tall through it all, I’ve risked too much to just give up now
I’m pushing on through
Sure as the tide rolls in at night
I'll still be here at the of days screaming at the sky
Let the fire consume and cleanse what's before me
Behold, I'll build my empire before the ashes hit the ground
12. Room 138
On my back, breathing heavy staring at the light
Praying this isn't the end, but pretty sure it might be
On my back, got my heart beating out of my chest
I never thought, I can’t believe that I'd go out like this
So these are the walls that have to hold this moment
I never expected to be here again
My vision is blurring as the light starts fade
Please pull me out of this
My ribs are breaking I swear, I'm only twenty three
Crawling, searching for a lifeline I just can't reach
Somebody hear me, someone open up the door
Get me up off of this floor and stop the shaking
The blood is boiling in my veins
Oh god the pain, it's unrelenting
I'm ready for the end if it means that all of this will end
So these are the walls that have to hold this moment
I never expected to be here again
My vision is blurring as the light starts fade
Please pull me out of this
Through the haze I saw a face
A second chance, another life to live, how did you forgive me
Held my head against your chest, told me everything's alright, don't be afraid
Close your eyes and rest
So these are the walls that have to hold this moment
I never expected to be here again
My vision is blurring as the light starts fade
Please pull me out of this
