Track Name: Keeping Me from Me
Help me I'm going down deep
There's a grey wall that's keeping me from me
I can't seem to see the inbetween
Of what I want and what I've come to need

Well it's gonna be a long night
This can't keep crawling in my dreams
I can't breathe
I can't see what's right right in front of me
As the hours pass time goes slowly
The thing that gets me is just not knowing
With each thought
Every word
This rabbit hole keeps growing

Will you save my soul
I'm sacrificing control
And then the truth will show
I do all this for you

Speechless meanings become unspoken
The words are here but I've got to be shown them

I think I'm going blind
I think I'm going blind but I've got the vision

I'm at the horizon and it's almost over
Almost over
I'm at the horizon and it's almost over
It's time to release me
I might be blind but I've got the vision
I might be blind but I've got the vision
Release me from me
I might be blind but I've got the vision
I might be blind
Just give it to me.
Track Name: Break the Mold
What you want and what you need
Should never supersede whatever you believe
Cause I was left a broken home
With nowhere else to go
Forever
The end
Alone

Cause I am nothing but hellbent
I'm out of element
And feeling like a wretch
Cause we are drawn by temp of greed
To be one of the free
Whatever that may mean

Now we do what we want whether right or wrong
Just to bring a little life to these old dry bones
Just to have a little piece of what could be gold
Just to be something else and to break the mold

Draw the line
Redefine
It keeps us alive on the inside
Hold the truth and we will shine the way
To a greater frame of mind

You can find me waiting
Over here on the bright side
Where it's all for the taking
Yeah you'll never be denied

You can find me waiting
Over here on the bright side
Where it's all what you make it
Yeah a greater frame of mind

Draw the line
Redefine
It keeps us alive on the inside
Hold the truth and we will shine the way
To a greater frame of mind
Track Name: Almsman Circuit
I’ve told you once
I’ve told you twice
I am fine - I am fine- I am fine - I am fine
I’m alright just let it go
I can’t believe what I do not see
And I don’t see any reason why your help is gonna benefit me
Cause I try and I try and I try to pull myself out of this hole

Only the willing will find their way
Say that you’re willing

There’s no knowing of what you might’ve been
No ones changing you
There goes another try for you

I’ve been there once
I’ve been there twice
It goes on and on and on I’m always living a lie
Isn’t everyone
I’m always thinking of more that me
I am hopelessly pursuing some idea of what could possibly be
Still I try and I try and I try

But something’s gotta give soon
Before I turn the other way
The Almsman Circuit
Never endings never been

I just need a little of your faith to pull me out
Pull me out - Pull me
I just need a little bit of change
Pull me out - Pull me
I just need somewhere else to stay
Pull me out - Pull me
I just need a little of your change
Pull me out - Pull me
I just need a little of the fame
Pull me out - Pull me
I just need to sit around all day
Pull me out - Pull me
I just need a little of your faith

There’s no knowing of what you might’ve been
No ones changing you
There goes another try for you
Track Name: Live It Again
If you’ve got the dream I’ve got the in kid
Bright lights and scenes you’ve never seen before
Just have to sign on the dotted line to see what your future has in store
They promised pretty things
We couldn’t see through the haze

This is all we have now
We’ll do whatever it takes to have our voices heard
If we were given the chance to live it again all over
We wouldn’t change a thing

Oh - Oh - Oh - Oh
You can’t stop it - No
Oh - Oh - Oh - Oh
You can’t stop it - No

This is all we have now
We’ll do whatever it takes to have our voices heard
If we were given the chance to live it again all over
We wouldn’t change a thing

This is all we have now
We’ll do whatever it takes to have our voices heard
If we were given the chance to live it again all over
We wouldn’t change a thing
Track Name: Just Like Everyone
Happy heart and home is what we need to keep it straight - Oh
Keep my hands clean and dot my i’s
Learn to always read between the lines - Oh

Well there’s something out there that’s bigger than this
We’ll be there when we see this through
We see this through
If we only knew what the truth could do

Don’t give up hope
Stick to the plan
We’ll pull this together and you’ll understand

You want it well you’ve got it
You’ve got my heart

There’s something out there
There’s something out there
We’ll be there when we see this through

And after all this effort you would think we’d catch a break
Eleven years and all the names on the walls have changed
I can only speak for us when I say to you
Holding out was the only option that we knew
My father told me “Don’t you ever give up son, cause if you do you’ll be just like everyone”
My father told me “Don’t you ever give up son.” cause if I do I’ll be just like everyone.
