Track Name: Royalty
It's never easy chasing what others can't
It's hard to be alone when you wanna make a stand

You thought that no one would listen to us
You said no one would care that much
But here we are making our way up
We're making our own way up

We're taking over all the frequencies
Of the radio waves and the silver screens
So save your life of hopelessness for someone else
'Cause we're the new royalty, oh, we are royalty

Our hometown can't hold us down
Our friends will understand if we're not around

You said we're stuck but we're breaking out
Leaving this city and all your doubt
Here we go making our way up
We're making our own way up

We're taking over all the frequencies
Of the radio waves and the silver screens
So save your life of hopelessness for someone else
'Cause we're the new royalty, oh, we are royalty
Track Name: True Love
High school was so much easier than this
Getting beat up in the school yard
Being someone no one would ever miss

'Til that blue-eyed girl, the one I thought I could never have
Would be the only one who would wanna take my hand

All I ever wanted was you inside my bed
But now I'm chasing you around with an axe
And I'll murder you instead

The closer that she gets, I start to figure it out
The wooden cabin would be best
You can't take my heart without blood on that dress
No one will find my damsel in distress

I'm nervous, kinda like sweating blood
The dumb sh*t we do all for true love
She makes my voice weak
And now I can't speak

I'm nervous kinda like sweating blood
I'll never be the one to step it up
She makes my voice weak
And now I can't speak

I promise this will be my last one
I've learned from my mistakes hun,
No rational thought in me
When you're struggling to break free

Now I've got you at a loaded gun
When you hear me come you better run
There's no getting away from me
You know I'm taking you out girl
You're not making it out girl

All I ever wanted was you inside my bed
But now I'm chasing you around with an axe
And I'll murder you instead

The closer that she gets, I start to figure it out
The wooden cabin would be best
You can't take my heart without blood on that dress
No one will find my damsel in distress

I'm nervous, kinda like sweating blood
The dumb sh*t we do all for true love
She makes my voice weak
And now I can't speak

I'm nervous kinda like sweating blood
I'll never be the one to step it up
She makes my voice weak
And now I can't speak

All I ever wanted was you inside my bed
But now I'm chasing you around with an axe
And I'll murder you instead

I'm nervous, kinda like sweating blood
The dumb sh*t we do all for true love
She makes my voice weak
And now I can't speak

I'm nervous kinda like sweating blood
I'll never be the one to step it up
She makes my voice weak
And now I can't speak

I'm nervous, kinda like sweating blood
The dumb sh*t we do all for true love
She makes my voice weak
And now I can't speak

I'm nervous kinda like sweating blood
I'll never be the one to step it up
She makes my voice weak
And now I can't speak
Track Name: Mayday Tonight
It's officially the longest I've been
From the ground this time
And I'm getting excited
On my way to see your hometown
I won't be long
I hope nothing's going wrong

Ignore the warning signs
Yeah f**k your seatbelt lights
Engage the hazards screaming
Mayday tonight

It's a plane crash, epiphany
The tunnel vision to a golden dream
Can't get a reading on the people sitting next to me
Are they all thinking the same thing that I'm thinking
We're going down - is this real or in my dreams?
Is this real or in my dreams?
Is this real or in my dreams?

I haven't seen you, last summer in the rear-view
But we've been texting
I was coming to see you
Got a seat on the next flight out and
This would be the one that goes down and
Running out of liquor to calm my nerves

Ignore the warning signs
Yeah f**k your seatbelt lights
Engage the hazards screaming
Mayday tonight

It's a plane crash, epiphany
The tunnel vision to a golden dream
Can't get a reading on the people sitting next to me
Are they all thinking the same thing that I'm thinking
We're going down - is this real or in my dreams?
Is this real or in my dreams?
Is this real or in my dreams?

I can't breathe, because next to me
She's been sitting quietly (watching a movie)
Now she's leaning in, I know what it means
We're not going down (without bringing the party)

I can't breathe, because next to me
She's been sitting quietly (watching a movie)
But now she's leaning in, I know what it means
We're not going down (without bringing the party)

It's a plane crash, epiphany
The tunnel vision to a golden dream
Can't get a reading on the people sitting next to me
Are they all thinking the same thing that I'm thinking
We're going down - is this real or in my dreams?
Is this real or in my dreams?
This is real, not in my dreams
Track Name: Together (Parallel Universe)
In a parallel universe you are mine
So today I start my journey through space and time
To find you
Baby I'll find you

I'll kill off the alternate version of me
And you'll never even know the reality
I'll bury him
You won't remember him

I'm crossing dimensions at the speed of light
And I'm diving through wormholes just to be by your side
Cause in a parallel life you are mine
Cause in a parallel universe
We're together - sing!
Na, na, na
Na na na, na na
Na, na, na
Na na na, na na-ah

I've sailed the solar winds of a thousand worlds
But there's no sign of my favourite girl
I'm losing hope
I just can't let go

I know when I find you it'll be alright
I've just gotta make it to your timeline
I'll be home soon
Bringing you Chinese food

I'm crossing dimensions at the speed of light
And I'm diving through wormholes just to be by your side
Cause in a parallel life you are mine
Cause in a parallel universe
We're together - sing!
Na, na, na
Na na na, na na
Na, na, na
Na na na, na na-ah

I think I'm almost there
Not too long - just another light year
I'm so close I can feel you
Engine running low on jet fuel

If I could make it to the next moon
Your world would be in my view
Stomach's turning don't think I'll make it
Stranded here on a lonely spaceship

Crossing space and time
To be by your side
Crossing space and time
To be by your side

It's not too late for us to find our
Not too late for us to find our
Too late for us to find our
Way back home
Track Name: Solid Ground
Fight me

Any day of the week
My friends
Got my back so we
Are taking on the world

I'm not what you thought
But through all the times we fought
Oh how I've changed and I've changed for the better

You won't break my pride
I'll carry on and smile

Take what you want
You'll never bring me
Down, I won't stop
I'll keep climbing

Take what you want
You'll never break me
Make me feel like
Life's not worth living

I never thought you'd see me like this
So fragile and weak and foolish
It took everything I've got
If only you could see me now
You might even be a little proud
To know I'm everything that you're not

You won't break my pride
I'll carry on and smile

Take what you want
You'll never bring me
Down, I won't stop
I'll keep climbing

Take what you want
You'll never break me
Make me feel like
Life's not worth living

Fight me
Any day of the week
My friends
Got my back so we
Fight me
We're taking on the world

Take what you want
You'll never bring me
Down, I won't stop
I'll keep climbing

Take what you want
You'll never bring me
Down, I won't stop
I'll keep climbing
Track Name: Hit the Road
Leave this town behind

Find a brand new life
Whoa-oh-oh-oh (x2)
We'll ditch these dusty streets
Find ourselves a brand new scene
Whoa-oh-oh-oh (x2)

You're breaking the silence
I feel it coming on
You're getting excited
Let's hit the gas and go
Nobody will find us
You know if we
Hit the road then we'll
Make it on our own

La-di-da-da la-da-da-da (x3)

The city keeps us wide awake
Pressure pushing down until we break
Whoa-oh-oh-oh (x2)
I just can't believe
That this life was meant for me
Whoa-oh-oh-oh (x2)

You're breaking the silence
I feel it coming on
You're getting excited
Let's hit the gas and go
Nobody will find us
You know if we
Hit the road then we'll
Make it on our own

La-di-da-da la-da-da-da (x3)

Take me there
Over the horizon
Take me there
We just keep on driving

Take me there
Over the horizon
Take me there
We just keep on driving

You're breaking the silence
I feel it coming on
You're getting excited
Let's hit the gas and go
Nobody will find us
You know if we
Hit the road then we'll
Make it on our own
Track Name: Say I Do
They say it's hard to let something you love fly

I think it's hard holding on while you're in flight
I'd rather be back on the ground while you're in the sky
I'm getting on just to find something new

I'm moving on 'cause I owe it to you
We were great living life by the day but
The story never sounds the same on a different page

If you want me to marry you, marry you
Be your man when I say I do, say I do
Baby that's not something I could do
I could never be the man for you

I'm not saying that our time wasn't sunshine
I've never had it better than when you were mine
I miss watching horrors on TV
And you would scream just so you could be near me

But now I'm feeling all the pressure
It's been two years and it seems like you're dead sure
I'm not ready and I'll never be ever
Maybe it's just me and you when we're together

If you want me to marry you, marry you
Be your man when I say I do, say I do
Baby that's not something I could do
I could never be the man for you

Hold onto the tragedy, tragedy
Just another chapter we complete
You know we've got different point of views
And I'm only letting go because I love you

Marry you, marry you
Be your man when I say I do, say I do
Baby that's not something I could do
I could never be the man for you

Marry you, marry you
Be your man when I say I do, say I do
Marry you, marry you
Be your man when I say I do, say I do

Marry you, marry you
Be your man when I say I do, say I do
Baby that's not something I could do
I could never be the man for you

If you want me to marry you, marry you
Be your man when I say I do, say I do
Baby that's not something I could do
I could never be the man for you

Hold onto the tragedy, tragedy
Just another chapter we complete
You know we've got different point of views
And I'm only letting go because I love you
Track Name: Bittersweet
Well you know me, better than I know myself

Show me a side of you, you'll never show anyone else
When you step into that ring perspective is everything
'Cause without it you've lost before you even begin
You've lost before you even begin

We've had enough of the teeth we scream through
Being tough is what got us here
Hold the crowd with the punches we threw
It's bittersweet when you crush your fears
Had enough of the teeth we scream through
Being tough is what got us here
Hold the crown for the punches we threw
And throw it up in the air

(I love to fight, I love to fight)
Start it up, six out of ten, well better luck next time
I find out where you'll be
(Against the wall, against the wall)
Put 'em up, had enough
If you run I'll catch up
We'll take this to the streets

Here we go, up up on the limelight
Brighter 'til we burn out
One last round
It's a knockout

We've had enough of the teeth we scream through
Being tough is what got us here
Hold the crowd with the punches we threw
It's bittersweet when you crush your fears
Had enough of the teeth we scream through
Being tough is what got us here
Hold the crown for the punches we threw
And throw it up in the air

When you're taking on the world
Take a look at yourself first
Those younger years mean nothing
If all the tough loving doesn't get you something
When you finally found worth
By yourself you'll make it work
In a hole you've been digging
Big enough for me and you
If you catch my meaning

We've had enough of the teeth we scream through
Being tough is what got us here
Hold the crowd with the punches we threw
It's bittersweet when you crush your fears
Had enough of the teeth we scream through
Being tough is what got us here
Hold the crown for the punches we threw
And throw it up in the air

Here we go, up up on the limelight
Brighter 'til we burn out
One last round

Here we go, up up on the limelight
Brighter 'til we burn out
One last round
It's a knockout

Here we go, up up on the limelight
Brighter 'til we burn out
One last round
It's a knockout
Track Name: Bottles
It was so blatant, you were so tactless

Smiles and kisses had us fooled for only a minute
And now we’re waiting for your first mistake
Best you believe you won’t be making another
You’re like an angel until he got you undressed
Now you’re the bruise that’s surfaced and we can’t get rid of it
What can we say though, you’ve got him under your spell
You’re a witch but worse yeah you are something else

And I said you’re only making me smile
She said that she can stay for a while
I can’t give you a ring
But I can sing for just about anything

Lay down on my roof
And rest your eyes in my shirt
I’ll lay down next to you
I’ve got a feeling that you’re hurting
Hurting for a little bit of conversation
While we’re staring up up at the constellations
Open up the beers and forget the bars
Cause it’s you and me baby throwing bottles at the stars

If you play your cards right you might leave with a chance
And you’re praying all night for some secret thing
I don’t mind making this seem effortless
Lie down with your lies and maybe I don’t sleep
I hope your feet are quicker than your lips
You’re a witch but worse, you are something else

Lay down on my roof
And rest your eyes in my shirt
I’ll lay down next to you
I’ve got a feeling that you’re hurting
Hurting for a little bit of conversation
While we’re staring up up at the constellations
Open up the beers and forget the bars
Cause it’s you and me baby throwing bottles at the stars

Lay down on my roof
And rest your eyes in my shirt
I’ll lay down next to you
I’ve got a feeling that you’re hurting
Hurting for a little bit of conversation
While we’re staring up up at the constellations
Open up the beers and forget the bars
Cause it’s you and me baby throwing bottles at the stars
Track Name: Move
I'm a few steps short of a heart attack
Lock me up, an arrest of the cardiac
I need somebody to save me from myself
So come running, so come running

I'm working myself into a state
Blood pressure's rising through my veins
How long can I spend everyday, just the same, never changing
Steady elevating my age

I guess I've never even thought about what I'd do
When I was as old as you
I guess I'd never even figured out that I knew
Nothing of any use
Now I'm a little bit crazy 'cause I'm breaking
Everything I held onto
I guess it's now or never baby, I'm fading
It's time to make a move

Make a move
Even if I wanted to

You put your heart out, a second to late
You've gone to far now - can you find a way
Can you make a change
To live out your days

I guess I've never even thought about what I'd do
When I was as old as you
I guess I'd never even figured out that I knew
Nothing of any use
Now I'm a little bit crazy 'cause I'm breaking
Everything I held onto
I guess it's now or never baby, I'm fading
It's time to make a move

Make a move

It's time to make a move while everybody's on another point of view
Step back if you hate the way you groove and every other day is a wasted move
This time, it's time to make a move while everybody's on another point of view
Step back if you hate the way you groove and every other day is a wasted move

It's time to make a move while everybody's on another point of view
Step back if you hate the way you groove and every other day is a wasted move
This time, it's time to make a move while everybody's on another point of view
Step back if you hate the way you groove and every other day is a wasted move
Track Name: Dawning
A dark lit room, a single flame

Writing letters to a past that I can't escape
I know that I'm the one to blame
For getting caught up in my own mistakes

To what we left behind, crept out in the night
Frozen windows under back porch light
As we get closer to end
Getting on, getting hard to find the strength
Coming up, coming on to the fight within
We'll keep fighting

Whole world at my feet, so hold on to me
An entire lifetime, in a single heartbeat
It's hard letting go of everything you know
So set yourself free in a single heartbeat

A leap of faith, a promise made
To myself, that I'd break away
I've gotta get up of the ground
I'm not about to let the whole world drown

Out of the dark we came, stand in the light of day
On top of broken dreams we'll be fine again
As we get closer to end
Getting on, getting hard to find the strength
Coming up, coming on to the fight within
We'll keep fighting

Whole world at my feet, so hold on to me
An entire lifetime, in a single heartbeat
It's hard letting go of everything you know
So set yourself free in a single heartbeat

Whole world at my feet, so hold on to me
An entire lifetime, in a single heartbeat
It's hard letting go of everything you know
So set yourself free in a single heartbeat

Whole world at my feet, so hold on to me
An entire lifetime, in a single heartbeat
It's hard letting go of everything you know
So set yourself free in a single heartbeat
Track Name: I Won't Apologize
I won't apologize for having such sweet moves

I've seen you getting low, I know that you can shake it too
So don't just stand there, get your ass up and dance
Get your ass up and dance

I won't apologize for having such sweet moves
I've seen you getting low, I know that you can shake it too
So don't just stand there, get your ass up and dance
Get your ass up and dance

I came here with you
The prettiest girl in the room
All eyes on you
Waiting for you

You just wanna sit around - I can't handle that sh
All of your friends think you're fking fantastic
I'm not one of them, girl I've got bad news
I just wanna dance, let's see that ass move

I won't apologize for having such sweet moves
I've seen you getting low, I know that you can shake it too
So don't just stand there, get your ass up and dance
Get your ass up and dance

I'll leave here alone
Find my own way home
If you don't wanna move
I'm waiting for you

You just wanna sit around - I can't handle that sh**
Told all your friends you're far from fantastic
Shake off your shoes, it's a party just let go
We all wanna dance, let's see you get low
Let's see you get low

I won't apologize for having such sweet moves
I've seen you getting low, I know that you can shake it too
So don't just stand there, get your ass up and dance
Get your ass up and dance

I won't apologize
Got moves you can't deny
I won't apologize

So don't just stand there, get your ass up and dance
Get your ass up and dance

I won't apologize for having such sweet moves
I've seen you getting low, I know that you can shake it too
So don't just stand there, get your ass up and dance
Get your ass up and dance
