Track Name: Sidekick
What’s it like to be appreciated? Don’t ask me ‘cuz I wouldn’t know
I’ve held in for so long (I sometimes don’t belong)
It keeps going on and on like knowing that you’ve got it all wrong
I came with good intentions: jealousy and intervention

Let me focus on other things, It’s not good for me screaming out softly
Recognizing my flaws, It’s no trouble at all
I’m not crazy, just a little lazy
I’m like a shadow in a backdrop
With the change in my pocket, I’mma lay low
I don’t wanna lay low, lay low,but that’s just how it goes

Now’s my time to rise, I’ve got my goals up in my sights
I won’t be stepped on or left out by you (Woa~oh)
I’m just a sidekick she said, her words they pierce my head
And just to be sure, I’ll never listen anymore

Take two, I’m copacetic
I made an effort, but you wouldn’t let it
I only ever wanted to be the hero
If only you’d let me I’d prove them all wrong
I’m sick and I’m tired of waiting so long

I’ll keep giving everything, I’ll give it everything I got
You think you know these things, you say they’re simple, but they’re not
No credit (~Woah)
Even though earned, no not even a bit
My opinion doesn’t matter because I’m just a sidekick

Screaming out softly, I’m not crazy
Screaming out softly, just a little bit lazy

Now’s my time to rise I’ve got my goals up in my sights
I won’t be stepped on or left out by you (Woa~oh)
I’m just a sidekick she said, her words they pierce my head
And just to be sure I’ll never listen anymore
Track Name: Blur
What’s happening at first, A simple greeting feeds it
We’ll talk about it later, You’re still pushing undefeated
My head’s on a swivel Like the point of the pivot
I’m tracking all your movements, But It’s blurring my vision

What’s the cost of living so fast when you’re always
looking like you’re running on empty, Don’t you see what it’s costing
Always practice making perfect, But you hardly ever hear that any more
You’re pushing to be the very best there ever was

Sprinting around the truth Making it my own
While the distance fades Make the crowd insane
‘Cause you always gotta have it that way
It’s so simple When everything lines up
Like A Lock and a key

Don’t apologize to me (no-oh-oh)
You have your life And this is mine
Open up your eyes you’ll see
Your movements So close to tragedy
Can’t slow down Can’t Slow up
This is for the ones That can’t keep up
Second time’s Just like the first
Well, not the same But can’t say it’s worse
By the finish line I’ll see you later

Casually without the casualties
I found the secrets behind all their disbelief
Well the secret is out with this reggae-stylee While the clouds, they float so happily
Day after day, It’s just more of the same
Sometimes you Gotta mix it up And mix it up To play the game
Obstacles, take them Literally
You’ll make it To the top eventually

Don’t apologize to me (no-oh-oh)
You have your life and this is...
Open up your eyes you’ll see
Your movements So close to tragedy
Can’t slow down Can’t Slow up
This is for the ones That can’t keep up
Second time’s Just like the first
Well, not the same But can’t say it’s worse
By the finish line I’ll see you later

Don’t apologize to me (no-oh-oh)
You have your life and this is mine
Track Name: Cliché
There’s no holding back anymore
O yeah, it’s finally time to settle the score
Generosity is so rare these days and it’s often taken for granted
I only wanted to be recognized I’m truly sorry if I asked for too much of your time
So bury me beneath your afterthoughts a consolation for all that I’ve brought

I’ll make mistakes from time to time
They only matter when I close my eyes
How many vows did I have to break
how did I ever get here in the first place, (first place)
Success means that I’m over you the critics seem to love it but there’s far too few
A form of art that I made for you it sounds so cliché but it’s true
(It's true)

[woah's]

But what am I supposed to do?
( You’ll never see this through )
So leave me alone I’ll just sit in my room with my posters
Designing my works while the whole world sleeps
I’m stitching it up but it’s cutting me deeper
(It's cutting me deeper)

1,2,3,4

Rinse and repeat I’ll do it again despite what they’re thinking,
I won’t play pretend
There’s something out there there’s something for me
A push for success And the feelings it brings

Rinse and repeat I’ll do it again despite what they’re thinking,
I won’t play pretend
There’s something out there there’s something for me
A push for success And the feelings it brings


I’ll make mistakes from time to time
They only matter when I close my eyes
How many vows did I have to break
how did I ever get here in the first place, (first place)

Track Name: I Can Relate
One for the life that you love to lead you give it all you got for your family
Talk is so cheap and you’re ready to go
Tell me why, oh why, are you so damn predictable
Working all day just to make it through you’ll put your shoulder to the plow
there’s just so much to do
There’s not enough time in the day you say, believe me when I scream aloud
that I can relate
So, pick yourself up and dust yourself off gonna finish what you started
no matter the cost
As it gets a little closer there’s something to be said
You gotta keep on pushing you can rest when you’re dead


Honestly, It scares the hell out of me
You’ve gone through so many things and it makes me wonder
You do everything so modestly
Whether you like it or not, they’ll express their appreciation

Far too many times for me to count up
I kept on moving through this mess oh yeah I’ll never give up

Just learn from your downfalls while slaving away
You’ll find some time to realize you love it this way
But how was I supposed to know that these overbearing feelings
would be yours to show
There’s not enough time in the day you say, well I can relate, I can relate

Go
(Please, don’t remind me)
Oh

Honestly, It scares the hell out of me
You’ve gone through so many things and it makes me wonder
You do everything so modestly
Whether you like it or not, they’ll express their appreciation
Track Name: Bookworm
I’ll turn the page I hope you’ll do the same
Another chapter falls beneath the rain
Woke up and smelt the ink stains blotted all beneath the weekdays
Scattered thoughts and the lies I bought
Best intentions attract me like a moth to a flame
Turn off the lights and cover up you’ll never feel the same
Hey there world, you’re on my mind
Reliving all the best times, they’re all on rewind

I went off the deep end and nearly drowned
Made up some stories I wrote them down
An author without a care anywhere to be found
I think I could go for another round

(another round)
(another round)

What am I doing with my life
I was content with solitude
Library filled with books and they were never due
(never due) (never due)
It’s like a one-way mirror’s forcing me to stare at myself
Life’s on display for the world like the dust on a shelf
Round and round, you’ve got me feeling obtuse
I’ll say something back at the risk of being rude

I went off the deep end and nearly drowned
Made up some stories I wrote them down
An author without a care anywhere to be found
I think I could go for another round

I can see so many responsibilities
You’re asking me what am I doing
I’m moving on with hope everlasting
Track Name: Nosebleed
Nosebleed, this party’s going on
Cannon blast decorations on the wall
Get your groove on, raise your voice and shout
We’re not leaving, you’ll just have to kick us out
Noise complaints, and calls for silence you know we’re not stopping,
when we hear the sirens
Fun policeyou can join in too
Take this party as a gift fromher to you

I am so sorry,you wanted to party
Destructive by nature,I’ll join in your laughter
So, turn up the volume there’s cake in the background
Yesterday’s a day away and today we’re making memories

I hear an angry voice andit’s no wonder at all
They couldn’t sleeplast nightfrom the noise of it all
I tried to calm it down but they wouldn’t listen
You’re jumping up and downsuggesting a solution
They meet your gaze,your smile’s contagious
They try to stay madbut their faces betray them
Forgotten anger they’re looking kinda ready
(It’s getting close to-the-time-again get ready for the party)

I am so sorry,you wanted to party
Destructive by nature,I’ll join in your laughter
So, turn up the volume there’s cake in the background
Yesterday’s a day away and today we’re making memories

I am so sorry,you wanted to party
Destructive by nature,I’ll join in your laughter
So, turn up the volume there’s cake in the background
Yesterday’s a day away and today we’re making memories
Track Name: Butterfly
Oh, what’s happening
Tell me what’s going on in your world today and please don’t say things are falling apart
There’s always a way, for a change of heart

I know and you know, what they don’t know there’s something about you that suits you well
Your gentle nature has brought you through the challenges that stopped the ones that tried before you

Listen to the sounds, let me hear you sing it
Panic from the crowd, just ignore their presence
We’ll laugh about it later, when it’s all been done
The music within you oh, what a miracle
You’re taking the stage it’s so unbelievable

No, don't leave me standing here all alone
Reach out with the kindness running through your bones
Just scream it out, without a stutter your heart beats on with a flutter
Going on, so happily

It’s a wonderful thing you know, secret crowds and secret shows
Abruptly exposed elation’s replaced by embarrassment
I didn’t mean to put you on the spot, I know it seems like I’m asking a lot
Your expression so consciously pondering all of your options so what will it be?

I didn’t mean to put you on the spot, I know it seems like I’m asking a lot
They’ll see, they’ll see, so what will it be?

No, don't leave me standing here all alone
Reach out with the kindness running through your bones
Just scream it out, without a stutter your heart beats on with a flutter
Going on, so happily

And I’m not easily impressed, but I wanted to recognize you
Right now you’re thinking so far, so good well, it’s excellent in fact
Don’t get my words confused
Know that some of ‘em have it in for you, but It’s alright you'll see

No, don't leave me standing here all alone
Reach out with the kindness running through your bones
Just scream it out, without a stutter your heart beats on with a flutter
Going on, so happily
