1. I Can’t Take Today
Johnathan Kingsley: Vocals, Guitar

Nick Estrada: Guitar, Vocals

Jon Hajak: Bass

Justin Miller: Percussion


Take another look at me, a broken man, no empathy
I can’t stay here
Falling out of history, a shadow makes me
But I can’t stay here
Time goes
And I can’t stay here
Lies show
And I can’t stay here now
You lost your favorite watch, I’m searching, now
But I can’t stay here
I believe you, I believe in you
But I can’t stay here
Time goes
And i can’t stay here
Lies show
And I can’t stay here now
We’re leaving forever
And everyone knows their way, there
Time doesn’t travel still
And everyone there is way, way late
I can’t take today
Hello, I can’t know, now
My time is running out
I might have to turn you over
Can you say that again
I can’t stay here
I might have to turn you over
But never again
I can’t stay here
I might have to turn you over
But never again
I can’t stay here
I can’t stay here.

2. Exit Out
Johnathan Kingsley: Vocals, Guitar

Nick Estrada: Guitar

Jon Hajak: Bass

Justin Miller: Percussion


Wait is there anyone you know, who
There’s no place left to run
Is there anyone you know
Hide and I will seek, hide and I will
All and all there’s no place left to run
You can’t fight it
In all there are better ways, there are better ways
Assume there are better ways, there are better ways.

3. Rise and Falling
Johnathan Kingsley: Vocals, Guitar

Nick Estrada: Guitar

Jon Hajak: Bass

Justin Miller: Percussion


We’re leaving so wake up
You have to leave all that you have
And you have regrets and we all regret
the things we can’t change
The Playground assassin, I never imagined
To be on all fours crawling for the door
But I can’t reach, hey
Knights to their castles
We have a shortage of sand
And I’ll meet you back by the totem pole
We’ll start the plan
You seem so demanding
As you fight to defend me
And you found me out but there could be more
That you can’t see, right now
Right now
We’re leaving so wake up
You have to leave all that you have
And you have regrets and we all regret
the things we can’t change
The playground assassin, I never imagined
To be on all fours crawling for the door
But I can’t reach.

4. Remote Control
Johnathan Kingsley: Vocals, Guitar

Nick Estrada: Guitar, Vocals

Jon Hajak: Bass

Justin Miller: Percussion


This cancer grows, this infection of the mind
Remote control
Did that bush just move, are you in disguise
Remote control
What’s in a name, what’s in a name, now
You say you will but no
This can’t happen, distractions
Remote control
TV never lies, never?
Remote control
Here’s a word but it’s just another verse
Remote control
It burns a picture in my brain
This name, this name
What’s in a name
We’ve all gone insane, now
Control, control, control
Confrontations lie undecided
Place your thoughts behind what can’t be spared
We all think as a collective
Try to escape from the captive created in your mind.

5. Walk Away
Johnathan Kingsley: Vocals, Guitar

Nick Estrada: Guitar, Vocals

Jon Hajak: Bass

Justin Miller: Percussion


I’m walkin’ away
You said it, you said it
I’m walkin’ away, now
You said it
It can if you let it, your ignorance define you
Let it out, well let it out
Escape from your shackled hands
Let it out well let it out
I’m walkin’ away
You said it, you said it
I’m walkin’ away
You said it
It can if you let it, your ignorance define you
Let it out well let it out
Escape from your shackled hands
Let it out well let it out
Hey what can we say
To this awkward silence, awkward silence
Sleepless nights, throw them away
But can you deal with it
You can’t deal with it
Throw them away
Simplify, cause you’re never gonna change me
Alibis, no you never will, you never will

Change me
And the light goes out
I can’t sleep at night, well
Sail away, ya we’ll get away
Cause you never know what to expect
Sail away, ya we’ll get away
Cause you n
