Track Name: New Blood
New life inside of me
Coarsing through my veins with
Every beat

And I feel it changing me
With every drop of
Blood I bleed

Better off
Letting go before the feeling's lost
Cause
Holding on
Has a price and isn't worth the cost
So let it go
Let it go

New blood is in my veins
And it's calling me to change
But if I wait too long before it's gone
I'll always be the same

Moving on
Instead of waiting till the feeling's gone
Cause
What's the cost
To let go of things you've already lost
Can't be much
So let it go
Let it go

New blood is in my veins
And it's calling me to change
But if I wait too long before it's gone
I'll always be the same

But it's old blood
That leaves me drained
Until it's colors start to change

Blue to red
Old blood will shed
And I'll never be the same
Track Name: Stand Down
Broke down, defeated
Or at least that's how it
Feels now as I bleed out
And with the world coming down
Around me it grounds me
But I won't let it get the
Best of me or test me
Not as long as I hold my own

Stand tall, shape up
The world's gonna try to
Keep me down and shut me out
And it feels like it wants to
See me fail but I'll prevail
Even if it takes a
Lifetime I'll still strive
For as long as I can so . . .

I won't
I won't stand down
No
I won't
I won't lose my ground
NO!

Stead fast and hold strong
Anchor down until the
Storm is gone and hold on
And the world's gonna try to
Let me drown and bring me down
But as long as I still got
Fight in me I'll still be
Holding my own so . .


I won't
I won't stand down
No
I won't
I won't lose my ground
Track Name: Redefine
I once thought I knew it all
And there was no more room to grow
(AND NOWHERE TO GO)
But I learned that I was wrong
And there was plenty more to know
(BEFORE I KNEW IT ALL)

So I tried
And I failed
Again and again

But each time
I learned
Learning never ends

So I gave it hell every time
But there was always more

If there was a darkness
You were the light
If there was a starkness
It'd be redefinied

As I age I see myself
Looking back on where I've been
(AND ALL I DID)
And someties it's hard to tell
How I got to where I am
(AND WHAT LIES AHEAD)

But I see
How I grew
Time and time again

And each step
And each move
Is what I needed then

So I'll set my expectations high
Within sight

And I'll give it hell to get it right
Each time

If there was a darkness
You were the light
If there was a starkness
It'd be redefinied
Track Name: Dead Weight
Looking back on things I did
I know that I was wrong
But I know the choices made
Won't hold me down for long

Dead ahead it's never set
Until the moment has come and gone
I ain't gonna be laid to rest
Until I sing my final song

Dead
Weight
Still
Coming down on
Me
Can't
Break
Free from my haunted dreams

I'd fall before the pride would come
If I ain't proud of what I've done
My consscience weighing down on me
And I swear it weighs a ton

But I can still let go of
My burdens of the past
Leave that shit behind me and
And there ain't not looking back

Dead
Weight
Still
Coming down on
Me
Can't
Break
Free from my haunted dreams
Track Name: Carved In Stone
We'll be running out of road
Long before we're out of time
Ain't afraid taking chances NO!
Ain't afraid of walking lines

By leaps and bounds we'll thrive
And make the world our own
Before it's our time to die
We'll come to claim our fucking thrones

We'll push our bodies to the limit
Long before we lose our minds
Ain't afraid of asking questions NO!
Ain't afraid of what we find

By leaps and bounds we'll thrive
And make the world our own
Before it's our time to die
We'll come to claim our fucking thrones

We'll carve our memories out of stone
Long before the memories gone
Ain't afraid of what the past can show
Ain't afraid of what's to come

By leaps and bounds we'll thrive
And make the world our own
Before it's our time to die
We'll come to claim our fucking thrones
Track Name: Derailed
Feeling l like a freight train on the run
Every mile I shed feels like a ton
Coming round' the bend full steam ahead
All signs say 'slow' but the brakes are dead

I've been derailed before
Each time I ware a little more
But I always make it back
No matter how far I fall from the track

Feeling like I lost when I know I've won
Like I'm running in a race that's already done
Feeling like I'm old when I know I'm young
But the night's still dark until I see the sun

I've been derailed before
Each time I ware a little more
But I always make it back
No matter how far I fall from the track
Yea, I'll always make it back

Coming round' the bend full steam ahead
All signs say 'slow' but the brakes are dead
Track Name: Same Ol' Town
I've got something that you wanna see
I've got nothing that they wanted to be
Felt so right
Felt so wrong
Hey baby baby when you sing that song

Go back
To the same ol' town
Go back
To the place where I've been found
Go back
To the same ol' town
But I ain't going again, till the day I die
Track Name: On The Rebound
Waking up just to walk outside
Reintroduced to the real world
It's a shame it came to this
That it had to end
Cause I don't know where to go
So used to seeing a place unknown
Seeing a city that's grown
Well I took my chance
I even spent my advance
I think I did it all just for fun

It doesn't matter where go from here
All that matters is the stories you tell
Tell em' all, tell em' again
Baby boy you can go to hell

Some day
You'll see me coming round' again
But I won't be down
I'll be back
On that upswing again
And you can catch me
On the rebound

Where I lay my head at night
Is where I call my home
Every girl that I kissed
And every girl that I miss
Don't forget what we did alone
It's so hard to say goodbye
But giving it up for the road is just how it goes
So many times I left behind
My heart and my soul

It doesn't matter where go from here
All that matters is the stories you tell
Tell em' all, tell em' again
Baby boy you can go to hell

Some day
You'll see me coming round' again
But I won't be down
I'll be back
On that upswing again
And you can catch me
On the rebound
Track Name: Emily
She's my baby, she's my baby girl

I pulled in her driveway to pick her up on a Saturday night
We looks that could kill, she was dressed to the nines

Red high heels and lipstick to match
She's breaking my heart, she's breaking my back

She's my baby, she's my baby girl
Only one I want in the world

With the night as young as us we went out to every bar and every club
We partied all night until the sun came up

Red high heels and lipstick to match
I gave her my heart but she wouldn't give it back

She's my baby, she's my baby girl
Only one I want in the world

Time had come when I had to say goodbye
Something had changed I knew we wouldn't survive
There's distance between us now that wasn't there before
She wouldn't wait long, no not forever
So I'm hitting the road to try to find another
Still it tore my heart in two when I couldn't have you
Track Name: As Cool AS
Rock n' roll is what I had to do
Hoping that I never lose
Close what I hold, dear to my heart
But I'm never home so I guess that's a start

Well I'm giving up on letting them down
God damn baby, what are you singing about
Living out of a hotel room
Trying to get closer to you
Eating of a garbage can
Well that's the plan baby

I gotta get back out
Don't wanna waste my time
Head back out
Till the end of my days

Every time I walk out of my door
I'm wondering if I'll run into her
Hoping she thinks I'm incredible
But now I know it's impossible

Well I'm giving up of giving a fuck
God damn baby, what are you singing about
Living out of a hotel room
Trying to get closer to you
Eating of a garbage can
Well that's the plan baby
Track Name: Blue Dress
Any other day on any given night
She brings me to my knees with that dress so tight
Oh, no
I can't get her off my mind

I saw her at the bar, took her by the arm
Asked her for a dance and it didn't take long
Oh, yeah
For that dress to come off

Living for the lust
Is just living for fun
Hanging out all night
Till the sun comes up
Running all around
With the streets under our boots
Let em' Know

Another blue dress and another pretty face
I met her downtown but I can't recall the place
Oh, man
I was high as hell

She came up to me, thought it was a dream
Asked me to come over and I couldn't believe
Oh, please
Don't be toying with my heart

Living for the lust
Is just living for fun
Hanging out all night
Till the sun comes up
Running all around
With the streets under our boots
Let em' Know
Track Name: Saved My Soul
Life on the line and I think I'm getting older
Drink in my hand and it's only getting stronger
Doesn't matter where we go from here
Together we ride, together we die

I live my life by a certain code
Do what you want and never let go
Of the things that make you who you are
Never been one to have it all figured out
Never been one to question what life's about
Because life is what you make of it

So I gotta find my heart and soul
Hear my song on the radio
Find my heart and soul

I gotta get up, I gotta wake up
And head straight to work
Another 9 to 5 to pay check blues
Then come home, glued to the tube
There's gotta be something more than this
Then at the end of the day, drinking a fifth
Right about now is the time things turn
But knowing me I guess I'll never learn
