Track Name: Better Days
Take me away to a place where life seemed lived. In my eyes living just seems so prevented. Wheres you're head at when your heart is your compass? for all of those who dream of this.
Take me far away, show me a better way to be
(I've lost sight on who i really am)
Take me far away, show me that there will be better days
Life its self is a gift, and if the easy way out is what you attempt then you can never truly be what you were meant to be, in me heart of hearts i hop you find what you're looking forTake me far away, show me a better way to be
(I've lost sight on who i really am)
Take me far away, show me that there will be better days

Don't let the world swallow you whole

Now i'm so grounded
Now i'm so flightless
Now i'm so broken
Now i'm so lifeless

So find your heart
So find your home,
and never let it go, never let it go

Take me far away, show me a better way to be
(I've lost sight on who i really am)
Take me far away, show me that there will be better days.
Track Name: Given A Chance
I am truly grateful for what I've been given! This life I lead! And the stories that I have to tell are the reason for what these cursive letters spell, it means more to me than you will ever know! More than you'll ever know.

Now I've been given a chance to prove myself more than nothing, take away all the pain and I will show you something!
Because what I found inside, can make the hatred die
And I'll beg, and lie, and I'll steal, and I'll cry in hopes that I can help you realize

There is more love than hate, life isn't a pre-determined fate, and when I say you can be more don't be afraid to take that leap and sore! Just sore!

Don't ever take for granted what you've been blessed with.
Take the time to stop and think that "I am special and I am gifted" no one can tell you who you are so make sure when your at the crossroads
You keep your head on straight

Now I've been given a chance to prove myself more than nothing, take away all the pain and I will show you something!
Because what I found inside, can make the hatred die
And I'll beg, and lie, and I'll steal, and I'll cry in hopes that I can help you realize you are no different than me!
Track Name: So Far
Your so far away
It hurt so much to say goodbye that day
Knowing seeing you wouldn't be so easy
She held me, wiped away my tears, and told me "everything will be ok"

From then on the little boy stood as a man
Taking every chance to grow each and every day,
And as the years passed I found my reason to be, the passion to live my life by, and the future to put my foot down and fight for

Don't get me wrong, I loved you with all my heart all along.
And I know what you did was hard
It just hurts that when I reach your still so far

Growing up with a false idol helped me see
That I could do what I wanted with no approval from anybody
Though the disappointed looks I got when I preached my dreams hurt the most because they came from those I held so close

Don't get me wrong, Ive loved you with all my heart all along
And I know what you had to do was hard
It just hurts to know that when I reach your still so far
Track Name: Please God
The struggle to find what is real! When I'm loosing all faith in what to really feel! I'm lost inside afraid I've died! Knowing not what lies deep in my mind!
Forcing it's way out, this demon that forces me to shout and act like something that I am not, act like something that I am not

Please god, give me the strength to fight it for one more day
Please god, just give me the right words to say
Please god won't you just take this all away

I'm not one to think that there is an easier way, I'm not one to think that there is an easier way!
As much as it pains me to say I know what it means to stay on my knees and let something win over me

Please god, give me the strength to fight it for one more day one, more day!
Please god, just give me the right words to say, right words to say
Please god won't you just take this all away,

So I can be set free
Set me free.
Oh Please God set me free
Blood won’t set me free
Track Name: Walk With Me
Each and every day, we follow the same routines inherited by generations
so passionless so hollow
So scared to take the chance and carve your own way to tomorrow
True success is happiness, for all the hopeless and faithless I say this

Let's make a change!
Let's take a chance!
Walk with me,
And simply just believe
Let's make history!
Let's take ink in hand and write our own stories

No matter what you've done in the past
With the right guidance it all will come to pass
If you feel lost and alone, I hope in this song you'll find you're home.
Side by side with complete strangers a common purpose, an unexplainable passion.
Understanding the fact you, are not the only one

Let's make a change!
Let's take a chance!
Walk with me,
And simply just believe
Let's make history!
Let's take ink in hand and write our own stories

It takes change to recognize growth
We can be anything, we can do anything, in this is the American dream
And I know I'm where I need to be. Is it so selfish to think,
You have no Idea how lucky you are to live the life you lead, and breathe the air you breathe. This is of the utmost importance to me so live well and live long because in the briefest moments you never know what can go wrong

Let's make a change!
Let's take a chance!
Walk with me,
And simply just believe
Let's make history!
Let's take ink in hand and write our own stories

I don't expect anyone to listen, I just want my loved ones to know I
Miss them.
