Track Name: Ride
Cut the cord and ride
Grab ahold of thunder, fill your pockets
Push facade aside
Don't believe in absentee

Cut the binding ties
Put the treasure in your pocket
Cut the cord and ride
I believe you should be free
Track Name: Sidewinder
Go down to oceanside
With nowhere left to hide
Burned up every dime

Feel the coming times
Begin to slide the tide
Cancel common lines, then decide
To come undone

A sidewinder can climb
This mountainside of mine
Fear can be defined
But not conquered

Can you conquer?
Can you conquer?
Can you conquer this?
Track Name: Sleepwalker
You can’t recall a single time you fell
And you can’t explain the lines on your forehead
Bumped and bruised, it’s plain to see
When morning wakes you painfully

Sleepwalker
Protect your solemn vow
Sleepwalker
Protect yourself somehow
Protect yourself

You can’t recall the final fare thee well
Because lies entwined with truth can sell a story

Sleepwalker
Protect your solemn vow
Sleepwalker
Protect yourself somehow
Protect yourself
Track Name: Ricochet (feat. Young Rich the Scrub)
I want to be your
I want to be
I want to be your loaded gun
Under your pillow
Face in the crowd
I want to be your hand-me-down
So hand me down

I can see you from afar, my babe
Sweeter than marmalade
I’m in the darkened shade
With a sharpened blade
It’s hard to say how long it has been this way
I followed you ‘cause I had a life to save
Can it be yours?
Why can’t I be yours?
You can be my senorita—I’ll be your senor
I can be that special person you can lean on
But until I get the chance to meet you—dream on
Better yet—you can keep me under your pillow
Best kept secret is me outside your window
Watchin’ you sleep
Watchin’ you eat
Watchin’ you freak
Watchin’ you pee
Saw you at the movies with Steve
Wouldn’t believe—I almost rolled up my sleeve and shot him with my laser beam and took out one of his knees
‘Cause I thought I saw him swing, but it was just a sneeze
Then he put his arm around you, put his eyes on the screen
I fiend for you like a drug do
Ecstasy, please bless me—thank you
I can get high on your vibe
Trust me—I’m a good guy
Sometimes you can’t see, hear, or smell me (nope)
But I do anything you tell me (yup)
Me and you against the world, baby, we can rule it
Take the love we have and start a movement
Let me be the gun—let me be the bullet
Let me be the reflex
Make your finger pull it
Track Name: In Corners
I’ve been trying hard to erase my own memory
I’ve been trying hard to leave things where they lie
Hiding in the corners of my cluttered, clouded mind
To only reappear during the night

I’ve been trying hard to live my life in symmetry
I’ve been trying hard to balance and survive
But lately I’ve been facing pain in dreams I can’t escape
Can I never find that peace of mind?
In time
I’ll find it

Peace of mind
In time
I’ll find it

On my way home
Track Name: Flash Flood
What if I was wrong?
So what if I was?
What if I was wrong about me?
What if I was?
Yeah, what if I was wrong?
And everything I am
Everything I am was just a dream?

So now it’s crystal clear
The fate we all held dear
Was fable grown from lands of distant blue and green

Carry me away
I could use some sleep now
Keep me safe and sound
Far from waters deepening in my head

Carry me away
I could use some sleep now
Keep me safe and sound
Far from waters deepening in my head

Far from flash flood
We will run
Track Name: Reset (feat. Shantel Leitner)
Awaken to the sound
Of the world all around us
Reset with silence found
In the world that surrounds us

Happiness
Sanctify
Breathing in
Still alive

Awaken to the sound
Of the world
Track Name: Reframed, Pt. I
Certain strands of overcast don’t burn away ‘til dawn
He who stands a lonely man will mask his fear with scorn
Commonplace, the situation traced upon the lawn
She who stands a sad woman will gladly lead you on
Will gladly lead you on

Happenstance has brought this chance, now won’t you hold the door
Happenstance has taught this dance, you’ve never seen before
Commonplace, the situation traced upon the lawn
She who stands a sad woman will gladly lead you on
On and on and on and on
Track Name: Reframed, Pt. II
I suppose
I suppose
That we might be afraid
That we might be afraid

So I propose
I propose
That we should be reframed
Yes, we should be reframed
