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 to you, which one comforts me more

No, I could never say, which one is killing me

Is it the beauty, or the tragedy

Or is there beauty in tragedy?
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
