Track Name: Keep It Weird
just another beer
just another bar
just another neighborhood pushed away so far
with no regard for the people displaced

just another band
just another show
just another goddamn festival
you know how it goes that's how we keep it weird
keep it weird......
Track Name: Patience
another day, another person
alive in the world that we call home
just how many ways can you
tear apart someones might
before we start to say
that something isn’t right

what your taking from them
if they took it from you
you’d be just as divided and shattered
i promise you, your fucked up mind
is just embracing no patience
for the living or the ways that things could be

you take an open mind, kill it inside
till you just can’t see that there is any other way
another day, another child
born in the world that we call home
just how many ways can you
tear apart a child’s might
to hope, love, and create
before they lose their mind

what your taking from them
if they took it from you
you’d be just as divided and scattered
i promise you, your fucked up mind
is just embracing no patience
for the children, or the ways that they’re learning

you take an open mind, kill it inside
till you just can’t see that there is any other way
Track Name: Ghosts of The Year
first month of the year
and tonight were burning souls
the ghosts that linger here are all fucking screaming
the distance between you and where you wish that you could be
is a never ending road your eyes are begging just to see

millions of words and your never sure of what to hold on too
i got miles of maps but I lost track last year
the effects in sight despite all that you've tried
may well work to destroy you
embrace your attempts, collect, respect your life
and that lost sense of being free
Track Name: Violence
another day, another reason
to call out your abuse
cause everyday i don't say anything
i know i empower you and
this violence in our home
this fucked up violence that is in our home

do you think your the only one who feels anything

within us all a massive collection of shit to reconcile
and everyday we don't stand to try this violence multiplies
this violence in our home, this fucked up violence that is in our home
enabled by everything that we let slide
reinforced by what we see in our lives

do you think your the only one who feels anything
violence is not dominance, no violence is not dominant
Track Name: Privilege
as time unfolds
nothings contained
there are more questions for every answer we obtain
another murdered a hashtag named
how many more lost to the true colors of this game

hey! this has to change
these conversations cannot fade
we must own up to the oppression we create
no blinded fate from the blood stained hands
of a privileged man

as time unfolds
this perilous state
our foundations so corrupt engulfed in pain
on the news, and in the streets
we can't pretend that racial issues are extinct

hey! this has to change
these conversations cannot fade
we must own up to the oppression we create
no blinded fate from the blood stained hands
of a privileged man
Track Name: Apathy
who puts the i in autonomy
the balance between dreams and reality
another day, another goal you didn't seek
but it wasn't just about counting victories

i think i've seen that face
your disappointed cause it didn't go quite your way
now you don't want to play
your biggest failure is you can't perceive your apathy

you and me got history
like the holes in our chests that you just can't see
using holes we justify a means to dig
to find a more honest way to live

and it's hard to admit
how much is wrong, the missing pieces, it's a bitter end
you can't pretend
and now those very means are all that you can ever project

like: motivations never coming around here
cause this town just sinks and reeks of apathy
those very sentiments cast ripples around you,
a fog that is just so thick, you cannot see
i'll never forget the beauty in the person that you
used to be when you believed, when you believed in something
Track Name: Rearview
will there be another reason to try
or was the opportunity just lost in the rearview
what priority of values do you choose to live or let die

what will you chose when the air is so filled with toxic the sun can not shine through, the ocean so filled with plastic, that nothing ever moves,
what will you tell your children, what will we tell ourselves, if with what was lost was an essential part of ourselves

will there be another way to deny our effect on our planets systems
overpowering any balance we try to achieve

what will you choose when every acre of forest is equated to a dollar sign
every mountains purpose is defined by the coal that we can mine
what's the value of a system, whats the value of a life
and does it mean enough for you to find a way to fight for a change
for a way of respect to all living things, degradation is not a value we should bind to our names, no matter of the outcome most agree we drive unsustainably but what are you changing?
Track Name: Peace of Mind
feeling tethered, compounded by all the sentiments that I hold dear
try to get around but I'm just as lost and scattered each and every year
try to get around it, Try to find some place in this world some peace of mind but some days it seems there's no peace to find

love ain't all you need, but it's nice when its around
like a blanket in the sleet of this cold-hearted town
so sing me something sweet, something raw and bare,
a song that makes me think, reminds me I care.
Track Name: Cages
questions of just whats to change
on a northbound bus heading nowhere
one things clear, these actions are here to stay
so get out of that cage you've been stuck in
i don't know who put you there or whats to blame
but it's been for far too many years

cause when the sun comes up
and your on your own to two feet
fighting the very demons that brought you to your knees
liberation, independence, and every other sentiment that never
comes easy, and the blood that continues on pumping

liberation, independence, to keep the peace, a gun in your hand
you said that there ain't no going back
innovation in a time when everything is off track

its survival, our salvation to keep the peace, a gun in your hand
you said that there ain't no going back
innovation in a time when everything is off track
