Track Name: Destiny Calling
This single question has me praying on my knees
What's the life I'll fulfill, what is the life I'll lead. It feels like something's been sitting there, but I'll never realized.
Fully constricted, God give me a sign

I feel like I am vague and undefined
locked out and left behind
just so unripe without these words inside me.
And I've been searching for a shine
pursuing line to line
It's like I need you hear inside me.

I don't know much about these feelings engraved in myself. Reveal to me the life all this time that you've had planned out, and

is this destiny calling me?
I think I've seen it beyond the line I cannot see.
I think I lost my comfort zone in all the midst that's happening,
and, is this my destiny?

Running in circles gets me nowhere in this life.
Lost in a place I've been familiar with since time. Because I know I'm made for something more
just don't know what it is. So now I'm crying out to you. God get me out of this.

I feel like I am vague and undefined
locked out and left behind
just so unripe without these words inside me.
And I've been searching for a shine
pursuing line to line
It's like I need you hear inside me.

I don't know much about these feelings engraved in myself. Reveal to me the life all this time that you've had planned out, and

Destiny
I can hear you calling me.
Let go of the past
brace yourself for what you're meant to be. x4

is this destiny calling me?
I think I've seen it beyond the line I cannot see.
I think I lost my comfort zone in all the midst that's happening,
and, is this my destiny?

Is this destiny?
Is this destiny?
Is this destiny?
God tell me
What is my destiny?
Track Name: Lagger
I've got a question
Burning in my mind
Where do we go when we die?

I've got a question
Burning in my mind
Where do we go when we die?

And how can we trust
What we know is a lie?
Sometimes it's better not to question time

So I'll still cling to love
Even when I know it's rotten
And who will watch the earth rot
When we are dead and forgotten?

I'll never be happy
This I know is true
As long as the grass is green
The sky is blue

So why do I feel sick when I'm in public?
I'd give you my heart
But you'd probably drop it

I don't have much to say
Just a word or two away
To figure out what's been
Bothering me today

Lagger!
Lagger!

I've got a question
Burning in my mind
Where do we go when we die?
Track Name: Transparent
I am a snowflake
individually unique
one of a kind, and nothing is
the way I am
you are a raindrop
dull and boring
all the same as those that surround you
nothing special

if I were to ask you why
your answers would not match your eyes
I see through all the lies you tell

the tension that shakes on us
I can rub off like fairy dust
there's nothing that hard you're going through

catastrophe
is what I see
when I review your public acts
your basic stance
makes my feet point away
but your approach method keeps me crawling back
they call you a jerk
they call you a douchebag
but I feel it's much simpler than that
you're just a coward
with alot of potential
but afraid to show the world who you really are

if I were to ask you why
your answers wouldn't match your eyes
I see through all the lies you tell
you can intimidate the rest
but it's nothing worthy of impress
I can predict every move you make
why does how they view point you
mean so much bullcrap to you?
just be yourself, don't care what they think

like a 7, i'm dominant
and like a king, i'm prominently
seated over you cowards and your incompetence
it's not winter, spring forward
and resist the clique, outshine the bullcrap
it's nonsense
take a hammer and knock this
and like my guitar, i'll pluck the strings off your ego
free throw
if you had a mind, you know i'd shine right over that
don't mess with NP, 'cause you know we fight back

if I were to ask you why
your answers wouldn't match your eyes
I see through all the lies you tell
you can intimidate the rest
but it's nothing worthy of impress
I can predict every move you make

they're not your friends
rebellion is
Track Name: Dream
It's pouring rain, yet we're still in a drought
there's a monster in my skin, and I can't get it out
but you've never failed before, so I'll keep trusting you

Guess what I need is more patience and time
was once abundant, somewhere along the lines
I lost control after losing a duel
to a warrior who's eyes gleamed like the summer sky

I'm not a loser
but I still haven't won.
But before I do
some things still must be done.
The problem is I search all night
Trying to figure out what these things are.

I have a dream
the same dream every night.
But everyone keeps telling me
"you're in over your mind"
but it's too good of a dream to let it go just like that

Your lips are moving
but my ears aren't catching on
I see through you with every single song.
Just letting your voice sing another man's words.

I'm sick of fights behind each other's backs
don't wanna get into physical contact
Can we just be friends? Let's drop the past

And my spiritual Father tells me I'm a man of him
but my biological one makes me feel like a little kid
Family, please understand, my calling's much different from yours.
I need my space, some alone time to explore

I have a dream
the same dream every night
but everyone keeps telling me
"you're in over your mind"
but it's too good of a dream to let it go just like that

Please help me, please help me
please help me figure this out
Please help me, please help me
please help me figure this out
Please help me, please help me
please help me figure this out
Please help me figure myself out

And I keep moving on
I keep moving on
I keep moving
And I keep moving on
I keep moving on
I keep moving
Track Name: Let It Go
The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation,
And it looks like I’m the king.

The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I tried

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see
Be the good boy you always have to be
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know
Well, now they know

Let it go, let it go
Can’t hold it back anymore
Let it go, let it go
Turn my back and slam the door

I don’t care
What they’re going to say
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway

It’s funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can’t get to me at all

It’s time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me
I’m free

Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
You’ll never see me cry

Here I stand
And here I'll stay
Let the storm rage on

My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I’m never going back,
The past is in the past

Let it go, let it go
And I'll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect boy is gone

Here I stand
In the light of day
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway
