Track Name: Forget the Rest
Don't wait
For the day you feel safe
Just believe in youth
It's a truth you don't see everyday

Begin to live
First, celebrate past mistakes
Just move ahead
And forget the rest
Track Name: Lazy Boy
Quit, commit
You owe it to yourself
To make a mindful choice
Don't be scared
You owe it to yourself
Make a mindful choice

Yes I'd like to believe
But there's no truth in that voice

Tell me what I wanna hear
Didn't factor my realistic frustration

It's not fair

So many thoughts to compress
Hurting my head
And things are only getting worse

Lazy boy, oh lazy boy

Turn off that tv
Your life's a redline, simply excite yourself
Don’t barricade your mind
Trust in something or just take the dive
Your life's on the line so save yourself

Often lost in space
Or somewhere in the middle
At least I know real life's not written on the back of a pill
Though others embrace it
Follow the faceless
Ask yourself when not to fake it
Track Name: Presser, Pressure
Wake up, see the light around the door
I step out to breathe, only reminded of your control
Don't wanna think about it, almost late again

Constantly fighting these feelings, my only true meaning
The presser, the pressure
These comforting walls, hold in my purest exhaust but it's the presser, the pressure

I'm gonna go to the streets
You’re gonna know how I feel
Next time I turn around offer up a fair deal
This ain’t a cry for help, or a call for treason
I just wanna be part of a human experience

See myself in a different light
I wanna know what's its like
Open minds, reckless passion
To help see past all the fucking fashion
Track Name: Don't Lose Sight
Sorry you’re lonely
You couldn't ask for more space
Really thought I saw a change in you
Without hiding the guilt, poison the place where you live
Where’s the respect set aside for friendship?

Realize, your foundation's crumbling
Realize, you've been ostracized

With your good intentions through the roof
You've forgot everything about the rules
I have no business to tell you what to do
But you've replaced the crew with simply you

Just bite the bullet
Come fucking clean

Massively inconsiderate
Like mixing soap with my spirits
I hope you never forget
Don't lose sight
