Track Name: Anthem
Lyrics by: Carl Kunz Jr., Jeffrey Hash and Lyle Kelch Jr.

"There’s a weakness inside of me, an aching limb.
To reach out through my insides to find meaning.
An anthem of words, an anthem in time…

I feel my temperature rising, feel the fever take hold,
Got the rock up my sleeve and the roll in my bones,
Let’s not talk about it, let your actions be bold.
Let’s light up the show.

An anthem of words, an anthem in time…

I feel my temperature rising, feel the fever take hold,
Got the rock up my sleeve and the roll in my bones,
Let’s not talk about it, let you actions be bold.
Let’s light up the show."
Track Name: Wolves a Comin'
Lyrics: Lyle Kelch Jr.

"Wolves a comin' and I aint gonna hide.
I refuse to lock myself inside,
Sheep are runnin' that wolves will hunt to find
I refuse to watch myself count time.

Is somebody knocking at your door?
Or are you just waiting?

Wolves a comin' will you run and hide?
Or act like sheep and keep yourself inside? (No)

Is somebody knocking at your door?
Or are you just waiting?

Be yourself, try and be strong.
Gonna be myself, try and be strong.
Never let anybody ever sink their teeth in.

Is somebody knocking at your door?
Or are you just waiting?"
Track Name: On a Dime
Lyrics by: Carl Kunz Jr.

"I can't catch you stopping on a dime,
I can't catch you running through my mind,
and it's so hard, too hard to even know what's going on.

S.O.S. are we going down with the boat?
and I don't even want to list out all that's bugging me.
Slapped on our backs, get up off your ass and begin to realize
all of promise that's been promised me.

I can't catch you stopping on a dime,
I can't catch you running through my mind,
and it's so hard, too hard to even know what's going on.

Broke, beat down, kicked around like a can on the ground,
seeing red, that's a sure sign something's out of whack,
flat on our backs is a great way to watch the stars
and start to unearth your rebirth and get back on the track.

I can't catch you stopping on a dime,
I can't catch you running through my mind,
and it's so hard, too hard to even know what's going on"
Track Name: Lighthouse
Lyrics by: Lyle Kelch Jr.

"Speaking softly, while never quite knowing who the hell I am.
Maybe I am fickle and my senses have dulled,
My wishes on clover just dreams I’ve paved in gold.

A lighthouse tower blinking red, I refuse to let you in.

I have got these faults that we’ve fallen through.
But the earth’s a bridge it grows again and awaits.
A passing through while the seasons change, and I’m changing color always.
The only constant here is you.

A lighthouse tower blinking red, I need to let you in.
But don’t anchor me a fool, oh won’t you fray back.

Swept up in my own pride, I’ll come crashing into you.
This broken boat before me, I’ll fix it up for two."
Track Name: N.B.C.
Lyrics by: Carl Kunz Jr.

"I am secure knowing that, we followed your plans to a ‘t’.
Always remember from very young,
scatter my ashes off of Teddy Escum

Your with me, I’m with you too.
Your with me always.

Tough as nails, everyone says this could be your legacy.
Grandchildren showed us another side,
exchange the hammer for arms open wide.

Your with me, I’m with you too.
Your with me always."
Track Name: Aviator Glasses
Lyrics by: Lyle Kelch Jr.

"Aviator glasses, oh I can’t fly.

I could life myself up from the ash, into the sun.
Or go blind in the eyes and wait till I see…
you reaching out to me.

Aviator Glasses, oh I can’t fly.

I could sweat the dirt until I lie into the earth.
Or go headfirst take charge and maybe I’d see…
you standing here with me with me.

You take me away to a better place.
You can’t be afraid to make this flight with me.
With me right now."
Track Name: Defintion
Lyrics by: Lyle Kelch Jr.

Always aiming, as we are torn through patterns.
So make your mark, leave all of the aiming behind.

Always crafting, as we are mold from plaster.
So make your mark, leave all of the shaping behind.

Always facing, a fools gold made of laughter.
So make your mark, paint me your portrait of time.

Tell me who you are, don’t be defined.
Track Name: Spent
Lyrics by: Lyle Kelch Jr.

"I’m spent, useless, of no value,
without your crash course there’s no shake in the earth,
or dirt on the floor, the trees wither away, leaving me.
With you, you fix me up, you patch up the blood.

Where time is a trade shop, with no exchange,
I am depleted and alone.
You, you fix me up, you fill me with love."
