Track Name: Superhero
I’m not alone,
I’m bright enough on any given day,
To be a loved one.
But you’re from a place of ancient stone,
And you’re the queen there.

Offered my own,
Fate to your hands, my heart was on the line,
And I embraced it.
Truth is what separates our souls,
But I won’t live there.

I know my all, has got me through the darkest days in time.
To you, nominal.

You got the fire, the fire, girl
Make my world turn ‘round,
You’re made from something more.
One day you’ll see what I could be to you,
But from now you’ll live, a superhero.

I won’t disown my passion for a drive for better days,
It’s my desire.
Off in a galaxy afar, you’ll keep me hoping.

I know my all has got me to the brightest days in time.
To you, nominal.

(Chorus)

Long for the night,
Ripe for the day,
Where you’ll be the sun,
And I’ll be the shade.
Long live your reign.

(Chorus x 2)
Track Name: Machinery
The moon bleeds in, the sun is asleep
Martyr in the wind, I floated to please
Look down on the earth, no signs of belief
Glimmer in the dark, I’m finding my peace

Onward to a different world.

I’m gonna get this started right, hands down I’m a different man
I’m gonna let my heart beat right, anyway I really wanna
I’m gonna get this started right, hands down I’m a better man
I’m gonna let my heart beat right, in a way I really wanna

Landing to the silence, most spirits retreat
My heart beats in the wall, so steady and meek
Blood, sweat, and tears have taken a back seat
To a change I’ve made, I’m making a blueprint of you
If you’re there, if you care

Onward to a different world.

(Chorus)

Idolize a prize after prize
What do you take away in the end?
Lonely roads only build better souls
I don’t wanna be a bust,
But I don’t wanna be your lust

(Chorus)

I’m gonna build a getaway
Bury myself and take a breath
Never gonna break on what I want
I’mma hold on until I win
Track Name: About the Past
Graceful shot in the dark
I found you sitting on a throne alight
Calling your shots, you’re ruling my world
But the chase has lost its time

We can’t rock, so baby let’s roll
Gonna take control again
We can’t fly, so baby let’s soar
Gonna make this whole again

Magic all through the night
I sigh, it’s been a long dark road to ya
It’s in your eyes, the ground starts simmering
Your body starts floating up

We can’t rock, so baby let’s roll
Gonna take control again
We can’t fly, so baby let’s soar
Gonna make this whole again

We can’t rock so baby let’s roll
Gonna take control again
We can’t fly, so baby I’ll soar with ya
I’ll make you whole again

Parting of ways
Was declared by the night
Every sound from the earth
Rings for our better days

It’s our time so lady let’s go
If they say we can’t rock, then baby I’ll roll with ya
With you girl
It’s our time so lady let’s go
If they say we can’t fly, then baby I’ll soar with ya
With you girl
Track Name: They Are Weak, But We Are Strong
You gave your all to one that couldn’t afford
A penny’s worth of give and take, you were done

You never wanted to be alone,
Your heart was already pure
The writing up on the wall

Lead on the ones, you march along
They are weak, but we are strong
Live on the ones you spoil with, every breath and every sin
Beat on the drums, you march along
They are weak, but we are strong”
Let go the ones who warrant in, every breath, and every sin

Your sentiments kept you afloat on a pond, you start
To make believe that you’ll be holding your own afar

You never wanted to be alone,
Your heart was already pure
The writing up on the wall

(Chorus)

You’ve been waiting for some time
Belong to love, you’ll be alright
But your queen is dead, it can’t be true
In a world above, in a world above you

Oh, oh you were starving for the wind
But the one that you know
Faded all away, oh oh
Oh, oh, you, gathered all your pearls
For the one that you know
The one that you know, all gone
Track Name: Dreaming Onward
n this world there’s ones who take and there’s ones who love
Dominated by the former, the lovers gunned
I’m just gonna rise above

She is the sun, a queen among the common
My luck could ride or fall, I’m dreaming onward
I’m getting high on you, I’m getting higher on you

I’m vibing one, a lady heir of star blood
She said the word, then baby it was all love
I’m getting high on you, I’m getting high

In this place there’s ghosts of honor, mirage of trust
Shouting out my lungs, I garner a pile of dust
I’m just gonna rise above

(Chorus)

I fall, I break
I look up, you fade
Battered up my wounds
As I crawl to you
I’m just gonna rise above

(Chorus)
