Track Name: Rocky II (Rocky Strikes Back)
Look around you
What do you see?
I see a street light shining
Are you really going to question me?
I’ve made it this far without you
So hold your tongue
I’ll be just fine
You don’t get it
You sit back and watch
My whole life
And you’ve been a lie
I’ve got more room to grow
Than you would ever know
I’ll be just fine
You don’t know what it means
To be on your own
To take the chance, to live your life
You’ve got a leash, but I’ve got a knife
I am cutting ties
I’m leaving you behind
So don’t follow me
You don’t mean a thing to me
Look at my life
Is it really free?
I feel the pressure rising
Don’t you know what you’ve done to me?
Dismantled all we’ve built
In this empty house
I’ll burn it down
Run away now
What’s the point in hiding?
You’ve ruined me
And you’ve ruined yourself
Leave like you always planned
You took my home from me
I’ll burn it down
You don’t know what it means
To be on your own
To take the chance, to live your life
You’ve got a leash, but I’ve got a knife
I am cutting ties
I’m leaving you behind
Don’t you even say that
This is on me
Don’t you even say that
This is all me
Why don’t you ever
Tell me where you’re going
Why don’t you ever
Tell me
Track Name: Enemy of the State
Don't sell me lies about a better me
Or say that I would have been happier pretending
I am the creative type
I'll give your family and friends something to think about
BECAUSE
All you needs a common enemy
I'm looking more like one every day
Best suit and tie can't hide a guy
That’s a shell of his former self
And I'm not here on the stand
For my mental health
All of the reasons why I
Shouldn’t have left your bed today
become abundantly clear
as my optimism fades
BECAUSE
All you needs
A common enemy
I'm looking more like one every day
Don't put me down
Don't count me out
I'm not good for much but
I've always got something to say
Always got something to say
You move to have me stricken from the record and the courtroom adjourns
The jury needs to contemplate the lesson I've learned
Like never say forever in a whisper sweet and short
It will never hold up in court
Track Name: Hopeless
Tunnel vision and bad religion, I've seen the whole world from your passenger seat, and it's hard to believe that
This is all gonna end in flames
Do you even remember my name?
We left your place in a haze, the same thing day after day
Maybe I'm homesick, or maybe just hopeless
Am I just imperfect? Or are you worth it?
But that's a fact of life when you left your world rely on people you can't pretend to trust for a second
Don't try to deny you don't care for our lives
Even when you're here, you're so disconnected
So this is goodbye at least for tonight
Go back to your life, and forget about mine
Hey man, where you been? I haven't heard from you since the weekend
Hey man, where you been? I haven't heard from you again
Track Name: Chicago Fire
Swept the road alone
A mix of ash and Bone
A broken man without a plan
Or a house to call a home
I think I lost control
I just ran without looking back
Oh Julie, where’d you go?
I could’ve sworn you were right behind me
Your baby blue eyes
Blood shot red
You came in screaming
Like you lost your head
I couldn’t see
A foot in front of me
But I swear to god
I thought it was the end
(Whoa)
Take me where the fire end
And the water meets the land
(Whoa)
I could feel your fingers slip
But I didn’t pay attention
(Whoa)
Daddy didn’t mean,
To let you fall behind
(Whoa)
But now my baby girl is gone
And I won't be the same again
Your baby blue eyes
Bloodshot red
You came in screaming
Like you lost your head
I couldn’t see
A foot in front of me
But I swear to god
I thought it was the end
My eyes were
Horrified by the flames I saw inside
I didn’t realize
I had let you fall behind
Who started this?
I said who started this
I think I started this
I think I started it
Track Name: New Sun
Old friends and
Bad habits die hard
When you’re trying to be
Something your not
Rusted edges and
Poor decisions
Make the worst of
Crowded basements
We play pretend over and
Over again
But we really have
Nothing
And I can’t see my Reflection
Past the mask I’ve been
Wearing for the last
Three evenings
These stage lights
Come down over me
As I look at the crowd
I see nothing
It’s like you said
I crave attention from
Those I don’t know
I’m just here for the show
I gave so much away
Family friends and my life
I will find my way home
I am lost at sea but
I know eventually
I will find my way
If I gave an inch
Would you take a mile
Or stretch it across
Time and space
Would you abuse
The trust I gave you
Or the faith I had in this place
Do you show your real face?
Once the stage lights come down
And there’s no one around
Or do you just use
The people who love you
Like they’re just throw away
I gave so much away
Family friends and my life
I will find my way home
I am lost at sea but
I know eventually
I will find my way
I don’t care
What you say
I will find my way home
If you fall down
I swear to god
That I will let you
If you fall down
I swear to god
That I will let you drown
Track Name: 22
Where have you gone
Where have you been
What have you done with yourself
You’re somebody else
And I’m just living in your shadow
I’m still trying to get by
I’m just struggling to float,
While you effortlessly fly
As you soar by
Take me back to the beginning
Back to when we were living
When we were both living, both living a lie
Don’t you begin pretend
You know how hard his life is
And oh my god, he’s begging again
But no one pays attention
What has become of you
Do you recognize the man in the mirror
Who am I to say
What you should or shouldn’t do
I live my life in fear of you
Would you, let me live my life
(I just want to live my life)
Don’t you begin pretend
You know how hard his life is
And oh my god, he’s begging again
But no one pays attention
