Track Name: Bloodshot Eyes
With bloodshot eyes you see right through me
So paranoid, I trapped you in my lies
Remember when you laid in my arms and pleaded
For just another chance now it's my fault
It's my fault, I'm pleading

Bury me before my heart stops beating
Close your eyes and tell me why this is breaking
My whole heart is torn into pieces
Just because you stopped believing

We're out of time, there's no excuses
I take the blame. It won't just fade away
Until my last breath and I am lying with you
I will wear this burden in my heart, I'll keep you

Chorus

You spread your lies. My back's against the wall
Screaming out you've got me where you want me

Chorus
Track Name: Not So Hollywood
You've got your fake smiles and a million dollar tan
Six cars and a head full of nothing
Black shades, needle in your arm
Daddy's Porsche and a diamond you can choke on
Hanging out with your head in the clouds
Fake friends and a life in the Hills
Refill with a pocket full of pills
Cause that's so Hollywood, so Hollywood

Everybody wants to be a star. Maybe you can fake it

Get in the spot light (Whoa), green is the limelight (Whoa)
Your eyes are on the prize, cuz that's so Hollywood. Not so Hollywood

You've got your fast girls, money on your mind
Cheap thrills and a breakfast full of white lines
You stay high just to pass the time
‘Cuz that's so Hollywood, so Hollywood
You're screaming out but we really don't care
You've got the look but it’s nothing that I wear
There's no point when they stop and stare
‘Cuz that's so Hollywood, so Hollywood

Everybody wants to live so large. Maybe you can fake it

Get in the spot light (Whoa), green is the limelight (Whoa)
Your eyes are on the prize, cuz that's so Hollywood. Not so Hollywood
Get in the spot light (Whoa), green is the limelight (Whoa)
Too late to make it, too high to care
‘Cuz that's so Hollywood. Not so Hollywood

We're never gonna be like you. We're never gonna be misused
We're not so Hollywood, so Hollywood
We're never gonna be like you. We're never gonna wear your shoes
We're never gonna be like you
We're not so Hollywood, so Hollywood
Track Name: One Step Away
We all make mistakes, we all have regrets.....

Her heart was shining in the night
Like diamonds strewn across the sky
I could not help to catch her light as she walked by
12 steps and seven little lies
2 days of waiting for her voice
That's all it took to burn a hole inside my life

One step away from leaving me in silence
One step away from walking out the door
I see you in my dreams, I pray that I can change
Our lives are breaking from this world we create

We wore our hearts like our last breath
Inhaled the air just as we met
So close to being open, fragile and so scared
You taught me how to live again
Cleaned up the wreckage and began
To walk the road of broken hearts that never ends

Chorus

We all make mistakes, we all have regrets...

Without you I can't be strong
Without you I can't go on
And it's killing me, and I just cannot breathe
Now that I know I was wrong (you know I was wrong)
Without you my emotions are dead
Without you I just can't pretend
And it's killing me, I live in make believe
Now that I know I was wrong, yeah

Stop my bleeding, voices feeding me into the fires I could never see

Chorus
Track Name: Makes Us Stronger
The color of her eyes were emerald green
Just like the skies the night she packed up all her things and walked away
I'm screaming
I'm sorry for the things I said, you stole my heart and then you left me
Lying here with nothing but regrets, I'm screaming

Calling out your name
And praying for the chance to break you from the pain
That eats you up inside

She called me just to say that every night that you're away
Is just another way to get me out your head, I'm screaming
I'm sorry for the things I said, you stole my heat and then you left me
Lying here with nothing but regrets, I'm pleading

That you will hear my voice and turn around
There’s nothing left but the ashes of a broken heart

Chorus

I'm reaching for the stars as I'm lying here waiting for
The chance to be your lover again, I can't take anymore
Our lives are broken stitches that tear us apart at the seams
I can't go on without you

Chorus
Track Name: When The World Stops Spinning
Bury me in the sand, stick your needles within
Taste the blood from my arm, watch the chemicals spin
My whole life is a dream, faded pictures and memories
Scattered out on the floor, I can't breathe
Give me some hope, stand in the light

How do I see? How do I believe, when the world stops spinning on it's axis?
How do I feel? I don't know what is real when the world is made up of such sadness
Give me some hope, stand in the light
Tell me I'll see you tomorrow. Tell me I'll see ya!

When you're broken inside and you can't find your pride
Count the scars on your arms, wipe the tears that you're crying
Your whole life is a scene, making friends that are enemies
Faking that you're ok, you can't breathe
Give me some hope, stand in the light

Chorus

Keep on breathing, just scream
Don’t give up on me now
So give me some hope, stand in the light

Chorus
Track Name: Lifesaver
I placed my heart into your hands
So you would understand that what we've got is not over
And every time that we're apart
I know that what we had is worth the fight to make you...

Save me from the pain I'm chasing, maybe we can start replacing
All these tears with a chance to start things through
I swear I'm better without you

She said she'd need some time to think
And hope that I'd understand that what we have is missing
With every ounce of strength I have
I'm counting down every hour, waiting to hear your voice say...

Chorus

How many times do I need to scream
I don't want you in my life”

You closed your eyes, you ripped out my heart
You cut yourself off from everyone that you loved
You closed your eyes (do you know there's still time?)

Chorus
Track Name: Run Away
We packed up our bags and we headed out west
Chasing our dreams with each mile
The feel of the sun on our face as we drive, with no regrets
The wind in our hair and the smile on your face
Tells us that we are alive
With nothing to lose but this pocket of change, I drive with you

Come run away, come run away with me
With stars in our eyes and a hand full of dreams
Run away

We count down the hours as we cut through the hills
Turn up the radio loud
We sing and we scream at the top of our lungs
Like no one hears
With palm trees surrounding sand beaches in view
We feel the cold breeze from the sea
The sound of the ocean sings out it's sweet song in harmony

Chorus

Let's drive forever, chasing the sun till we die
Let's drive forever, chasing the stars though the night

Chorus
Track Name: Lights Out for Summer
My soul's alive

The summer sun breaks through the sky
The ocean air picks up and I can't help to think that I am
Trapped here in this paradise called Hell
I close my eyes and take a bow
I feel the water rushing down
And I am sinking in this ocean that will never know my name

Lights out
We're swinging like we've lost control
Shot down
We're hanging on until we know
Our dreams of summer will be burning in the air tonight

The memories of you remain
Like ghosts at sea without a grave
And I can't help to feel that
Everyone I've loved has sailed away
I tread the water, taste the salt
I hear your voice as I look down
And I am drowning as the angels and the demons run away

They run away
Don’t run from me
Don’t run away

Chorus

I'm sinking in this ocean
And I'm waiting for your mercy
You can't help me, you can't help me
It's all over, I'm not worthy

Chorus

Lights out for summer
Track Name: You Can't Swim With Concrete Shoes
Lying awake it's 7:30 and it's hard to breath
The air is cold, my senses numb my heart is telling me
To grab the keys to start the car and drive all night to you
I can't believe it came to this, just tell me what to do

Hearts are beating, hearts are beating out of time
Lips are bleeding, lips are bleeding red tonight

Falling to my knees, don't tell me that it's over
Don't tell me that it's over to me

I hit the lights and wipe my eyes to find her things are gone
My fingers linked, I pray for strength but no one's listening
I seize the knife, I hear your voice scream “are you happy now”?”
You've got your wish, you make me sick
Now drive the blade in deep

Chorus

With hearts on fire and target set
We taste the embers of your regret

Chorus

Hearts are beating, hearts are beating out of time
Lips are bleeding, lips are bleeding red tonight
