Track Name: Knight
Well i know all you people
everyones the same
why not add a splash of color
why is everyone so tame

Well I can guess
what everyone is thinking
but no one knows
what's really in there heart
until you get set free

open your eyes
the prism of your mind's a fantasy

Ignore what teachers say
and Don't follow the leader
Question your own thoughts
Until they're crashing over
Until you are at peace

you're smarter than you think
but don't think too hard
at night you're a king
when the day shines through
you're still the same to me
Track Name: Flight 785
At the age of 13 my mother always said
Work your hardest and get the fuck out of bed
i just sit around lazy as hell
So I guess I didn't listen if you can't tell

Well I'm all messed up and i'm finally done
maybe walk outside and see the sun
shits too bright go back in side
blankly stare till my feelings subside


well what the fuck does it mean, I don't understand
I can't stay here but i don't know where to land
cuz i flew too high and I'm dangerously low
the grounds coming fast and i have to go

so what do i do when everything seems lost
i went too far a line was crossed
but i can’t go back, i never can
time to grow up and become a man

Ok its mind vs body and my mind is losing
the worlds so big makes it so confusing
so chill for a while and relax your mind
look back at the world we left behind

well i have seen
what you do to me
what we do to ourselves
why oh why am I alive

well what the fuck does it mean, I don't understand
I can't stay here but i don't know where to land
cuz i flew too high and I'm dangerously low
the grounds coming fast and i have to go
Track Name: Tie Dye
That one big star is shining bright tonight
deep in the sky, I look for light
Mystery and questions surround it all
Some day a shooting star will fall

There will always be those questions
where you have no answer
like why is there death and theres cancer
some say theres a god and he hates us
others think that he is ritcheous and will save us all
all i know is i’m here
and there are others around me
so just don't be a dick
and be the best that you can be


why do we fight to save ourselves
we never think about the others
why start war when we could have peace
while kids hide under the covers
i don’t know
in an indecent world
i do the best i can

know one should control you
don’t get bossed around
stand up tall like an oak tree
and take the upper ground
you don’t need to frustrated
that’s just bad for your health
say please and say thank you
and believe in yourself
things are easier said than done
and i can’t change you people
i can’t change the world
But I can fight until we’re equal

why do we fight to save ourselves
we never think about the others
why start war when we could have peace
while kids hide under the covers
i don’t know
in an indecent world
i do the best i can

well i just keep rolling along the way
everybody else is behind me
try to start a movement
or just raise some hell
i’ll try my best, i’m doin pretty well
Track Name: Clarence
6 feet deep pushin up grass
The place I lay will be my last
No daisies here, where I rest my head
Well It's a great day to be dead

I'm all dressed up and ready to go
I won't come back that's all I know
Going for a trip in a black sedan
A hearse then a church that is the plan
oh oh

Pulled in around noon people singin a song
My eulogy won't take too long
I see my fiends with tears in their eyes
Asking who what when where and why

Goin in soon I look at the sky
Look at everyone and say goodbye
I'm goin in deep for quite awhile
I'll leave this world with a smile


6 feet deep pushin up grass
The place I lay will be my last
No daisies here, where I rest my head
Well It's a great day to be dead
Track Name: Zero
I'm thinking about a time
that was not too long ago
not too far away
where the flowers would still grow

but its now a darker time
the sun has gone away
flowers die in the winter
leave the world covered in grey

so i just imagine
like I'm in a dream
of a better place
where my eyes would still gleam

sometimes i just wish
i could fall asleep
everything is quiet
the feeling i wish to keep

all is quiet
i don’t want it any other way
its dark in my head
it helps keep my mind at bay

the worst part is waking up
from that dream inside your head
when the light peaks through
let me go back to bed
