about

This album has been a journey for me. My last 2 albums didn't take this long......only a little less than a year. Then again, they weren't up to this caliber either. I spent 16 months in the writing and recording process for Wildfire. In january of 2012, I only had 2 songs written and recorded for Wildfire. Then was the UK tour. After we got back, I wrote a few more songs and recorded a total of 4 or 5 of them come October of 2012, which was 9 months later. Clearly I was slacking and/or having a lack of inspiration. Eventually that inspiration came as you can hear in the music, through the topics of the songs and the pictures they paint. In March of 2013, we completed Wildfire...I'm very proud of the outcome. - Raine Wilder

Track Name: Noise In The Background
Verse 1
I live my words, so my songs are life
I kill the verse, so my pens a knife
I'm an illusion with an illuminati mind
I wanna rule the world, and hide behind the blinds

Walk the walk before I talk the walk
Kill so many songs I brought a bag of chalk
Break my legs, I'll walk on my palms
Crush my hands, I'll move with my arms

To put it simply what I'm saying is I'm still determined
To spread Wildfire till the Earth is burning
And cause turbulence, the world ain't making sense
I'm caught in its whirlwind, I've just began learning

Who I am and what I'm here for
What's my dreams and what I stand for
What's my nightmares, who I'll fall for
Who I'll let fall and who I'll go to bat for

CHORUS
So shut your mouth
You're just noise in the background
So shut your mouth
You're just noise in the background
So flip the coin
Feeling lucky? Flip the coin punk (2x's)

Verse 2
I'll never quit, so I'll never lose
I'll never slip, I don't wear loose shoes
Won't lose my grip, I'll let my hands bruise
Before I give in, I'll eat my flesh for food

Drink my blood, just to quench my thirst
Don't act like you haven't heard worse since birth
You heard what I said, man I ain't the first
I won't be the last, so take your ass to church

Cuz only God can judge me, I'm certain you've heard it
Screw what you said and Satan's verdict
Middle fingers up to the judge and jury
Cuz I'll be just fine while you're crying burning

Look at the color that the fires turning
Blues and reds, yea the choir children
Sing in unison, for you my friend
Deadly harmonies, tone deaf laid to rest

Awake from the dead, yes I awaken
Right when I thought that this dream I'm chasing
Was taking too long, my spirit breaking
But all along, I was wrong mistaken

Cuz next of course along comes George
A boy from Britain said "Let's go on tour"
So we linked up, it became much more
Now I've got a family on distant shores

That restored confidence and faith in my craft
That was slipping till I pulled out the map
To add up the miles I would travel there and back
Booked a plane flight, sat back and laughed

Said "If I can do that, I can do anything"
Sold my vehicle to get some spare change
Grabbed my camera man Whitey and DJ Kut-Off
We're off to vindicate the UK

CHORUS
So shut your mouth
You're just noise in the background
So shut your mouth
You're just noise in the background
So flip the coin
Feeling lucky? Flip the coin punk (2x's)
Track Name: Can't Back Down
CHORUS
keep on going, you just gotta fight it
Keep on going cuz it's not too late
You can't back down, you can't back down
Keep on going, you just gotta fight it
Keep on going cuz it's never too late
You can't back down, you can't back down

Verse 1
Have you ever had
Something you wanted so bad
You would drop anything to grab it?

Just to have it, and to hold it
Feel like an addict stuck with a habit
Can't control it

But you're not dope sick
You're feeling home sick
So many holes in your soul
Close to exploding

I've seen too many people
Playing with a needle and lose
My needles only play me music
And give me tattoos

Maybe that's the only reason
Why you're hearing my tunes
Cuz I never tried the demons
That they used to consume

It's not too late for you to make a choice
And choose not to loose
Pay attention to that inner voice
and tighten your shoes

And get your ass on the track and run with it
Like they're back on the attack
but cant crack your commitment

Like the gates close
if you don't escape prison, in one minute
Turn around and tell the world you did it
Go get it

Chorus
Keep on going, you just gotta fight it
Keep on going cuz it's not too late
You can't back down, you can't back down
Keep on going, you just gotta fight it
Keep on going cuz it's never too late
You can't back down, you can't back down

Verse 2
You can't back down
There's no tearing your spirit
You're hearing cheers near the finish
Almost the winner now

They're throwing tricks out
To push it against ya
Get used to the pressure
Let loose and let the rage out

Cuz soon they fade out
Never remembered
Followed the foot prints of every contender
That waved the white towel

They gave in
I'm glad I built a stable foundation
To keep me safe in case I cave in

In case the walls fall
All to the center, just you remember
Every man is sinner, we all fall short

We all do wrong
We all regret, never the less
It's a step in the same test

Of the same journey
We're all in
No one gets out alive
So go do what your love is

Even if it doesn't pay you a cent
Can't take it with you
On the day that you're dead
You can't back down

CHORUS
Keep on going, you just gotta fight it
Keep on going cuz it's not too late
You can't back down, you can't back down
Keep on going, you just gotta fight it
Keep on going cuz it's never too late
You can't back down, you can't back down

Verse 3
To every body that's ever had their heart ripped out
And got to witness it still beat before they passed out
To all the men who wonder why their wife broke a vow
And all the women who wonder why he ain't stuck around

To all the people determined to break the bad cycle
Of evil fathers who beat their child or drink like psychos
To every body who's kicked down and stomped on
And repeatedly beaten just like a skipping song

Listen to that noise
In the back of your head
Warning you to move fast
Or else wind up dead

That's when they wind up
That's when they throw the pitch
Thats when they knock it out the park
Like Babe Ruth did

Cuz You're a champion, you're victorious
You do what can't be done
They wonder what your story is

Of that special spirit
Who always stayed determined
There ain't no certain sex or race
It's inside every person

Chorus
Keep on going, you just gotta fight it
Keep on going cuz it's not too late
You can't back down, you can't back down
Keep on going, you just gotta fight it
Keep on going cuz it's never too late
You can't back down, you can't back down
Track Name: It Don't Matter
Verse 1
I haven't felt my heart beat
In a few months
It's getting hard to breath
Like I'm needing new lungs

Misery loves company
Yea I'm a firm believer
It's not a mystery
My history's a good teacher

I've been up & down
More than the stock exchange
No matter the amount of cash
That I stash, I'll never change

Even if my worth crashes
I'll still be the same
Same tattoos, same clothes, same name

Same double anchors
thats hanging on my chain
Same trouble maker
Like I'm still 18

Half my life Ive had these grown folks
Telling me to lift my pants
Not a chance, makes it easier for you
To kiss my ass

CHORUS
You're not pushing me 'Round
And you're not breaking me down
You're not breaking me down
No-o-o

You're not pushing me 'Round
And you're not breaking me down
You're not breaking me down
No-o-o

Verse 2
You can't kill this
I'm Bruce Willis, I die hard
Or John McClain, it's all the same
I pull glass shards
From my veins, I'm from the city of the glass heart
Everyday heart break, cuz street peace is a lost art

Cuz any time someone creates like a Mozart
Others hate and want them out they body
like an avatar
Now they're floating around feeling like they're Tony Stark
Please, you ain't no Iron man
Ill eat you like a hungry shark

I ain't afraid of your bite
You've got a phony bark
So much animal inside
You'd think I ate Noah's ark

I said
I ain't afraid of your bite
You've got a phony bark
So much animal inside
You'd think I ate Noah's ark

Yea I have a shaved head
I ain't no racist
The first one to claim that hate shit will get a face lift
And if they wanna step, do way more than just break their necks
Make them bite the curb and stomp their head
American History X

CHORUS
You're not pushing me 'Round
And you're not breaking me down
You're not breaking me down
No-o-o

You're not pushing me 'Round
And you're not breaking me down
You're not breaking me down
No-o-o

BRIDGE
All the stories that they claim, no it don't matter
And all the words they say, no it don't matter
And all the things that they've seen, no it don't matter
To me, it don't matter
See, it don't matter

All the stories that they claim, no it don't matter
And all the words they say, no it don't matter
And all the things that they've seen, no it don't matter
To me, it don't matter
No, it don't matter

See it really don't matter cuz

CHORUS
You're not pushing me 'Round
And you're not breaking me down
You're not breaking me down
No-o-o

You're not pushing me 'Round
And you're not breaking me down
You're not breaking me down
No-o-o
Track Name: I'll Be Alright
Verse 1
I guess it took this long
To let you go
Must have had me hooked,
Like a strip of Velcro

From the jump I fell
Hell I almost broke my toes
In hind sight
I really wished it was my jaw bone

Because I said too much
If I'da had it wired shut
It would have benefited sh*t
Instead of messing up

Maybe we would be different
Switched it up for both of us
But instead I spoke till we were crushed
Broke and turned to dust

Now it's a joke and trust
I'm smoking like its both of us
Feeling like the rope is snug
Tugging till it chokes my lungs

What about the rug
Under my feet that you pulled up
Flipped me a 360
Till the concrete kissed me on my butt

But that was not enough
And all those knots were not enough
To tie down all my feelings
I must've unknotted nine of them

You broke the chains
And now I'm changing out the weakest link
I see we're rearranged
You're in my range but out of my reach

CHORUS
When your backs to the wall
Foot's to the edge and you're ready to fall
Say ill be alright (I'll be alright)
Say ill be alright (I'll be alright)

When your standing with your back to the wall
Foot's to the edge and you're ready to fall
Say ill be alright (I'll be alright)
Say ill be alright (I'll be alright)

Verse 2
If I could find a time machine
I'd do it all different
I'd go back and tell myself
"Boy sit down listen,

Everything your father says
Is for your own good,
You don't know shit
You're just a kid, understood"?

And someday you'll meet a girl
And think she is an angel
Then one day she'll be your world
The next day a stranger

Before you know it
She'll just be a bitch who broke your heart
But that's ok cuz I got stitches
It won't fall apart

And never mind the gun
You find under your mattress
The act you did when you got mad
Will just expand your atlas

Though at the time
You'll be the psycho out the loony bin
Next thing you know
That shot will shoot your ass to England

And then you'll meet friends
That you would have never had
And those friends become family
And more than that

Before you know it
You go signing foreign autographs
Who would have thought a broken heart would snap
And get a passport stamp

CHORUS
When your backs to the wall
Foot's to the edge and you're ready to fall
Say ill be alright (I'll be alright)
Say ill be alright (I'll be alright)

When your standing with your back to the wall
Foot's to the edge and you're ready to fall
Say ill be alright (I'll be alright)
Say ill be alright (I'll be alright)

Verse 3
I'm so glad
I've made the mistakes I have made
Cuz this light wouldn't exist
Without the shade

Cuz this drive
Wouldn't exist with out the brakes
I basically closed my eyes
And drove through the caution tape

I've always known
Everything happens for a reason
Even if in the beginning days
You don't see it

Sometimes you have to be cut down
Before you'll grow
But that's something that' you'll never know
Until you're shown

At nights I lay in bed
Feeling all alone
Inside my mind remind myself
You're a Rolling Stone

Your not alone it's what you've chose
You got the whole world
In your hands, so don't just stand there
Make it twirl

While you're at it
Feel the magic, take the jump shot
Slam dunk it in that punks face
Why not?

After all You've always read
The writing on the wall
But now you're writing it
So you're not reading at all

CHORUS
When your backs to the wall
Foot's to the edge and you're ready to fall
Say ill be alright (I'll be alright)
Say ill be alright (I'll be alright)

When your standing with your back to the wall
Foot's to the edge and you're ready to fall
Say ill be alright (I'll be alright)
Say ill be alright (I'll be alright)

When your standing with your back to the wall
Foot's to the edge and you're ready to fall
Say ill be alright (I'll be alright)
Say ill be alright (I'll be alright)

I'm ready to fall
Say I'll be alright
Say I'll be alright
Track Name: Sunshine
Verse 1
He's an escape artist
Call him Mr. Houdini
When he's drunk driving,
call him Aston Martini

He's gotten every wish
He's ever wanted must have genie
Bottles piled up in the front seat
Of his Lamborghini

He owns condos and boats
Sails Cali to Fiji
Cover of Forbes magazine
Check if you don't believe me

Some may say it might seem
Like he has everything
Fancy cars, pretty "broads",
And plenty diamond rings

Maybe true, but
He also has the DNA
Of an addict stuck in traffic
With needles in his veins

Think that's that tragic
Well you haven't heard shit let me explain
Caught some static on a traffic stop
On independence day

As soon as he saw the flashes
Pulled over out the car he dashes
Gun in hand ran through the grasses
Hopped the fence went to ditch his stashes

That's when the cop went to grab him
Switch blade opened
To the chest he stabbed him
Switched both lives around, he panicked
One life gone, one on death row standing

CHORUS
Threw it all away
Threw it all away
Threw it all away
That piece of sunshine
That piece of sunshine
That piece of sunshine
That piece of sunshine

Verse 2
She was a great artist
Valedictorian
Head cheerleader of a squad,
And class president

Graduated with a 4.5
Focused on scholastics
She earned a full ride to college
With her scholarships

Her life changed suddenly
She left for school dad died of cancer
No life insurance so to make money
She became a dancer

But she was too shy to stand there
And take off her top
So the door guy says
"Here's a pill that you can pop"

Next thing you know
She's gripping the pole out of control
Five years later no one will date her
Known as a junkie hoe

She's walking through the back room
Into the bathroom to snort some blow
And then just like a vacuum
Sucked up the dollar bill through her nose

She feels the reaction her body's having
To her toes
The crowd is clapping her heart is racing
Right through her clothes

Her systems crashing, her body's collapsing
On the floor in the front row
And to think she threw away
Every opportunity she had
To take the right road

CHORUS
Threw it all away
Threw it all away
Threw it all away
That piece of sunshine
That piece of sunshine
That piece of sunshine
That piece of sunshine
Track Name: Where You Belong
CHORUS
I can't go on
If your not by my side
And I can't sleep alone
Since you walked out that night
Please don't let me go
Cuz this is where, this is right where you belong
Right where you belong

Verse 1
She said anxiety & stress
And the situation I sit in
Almost has me stretched to the limit
Before I give in

Feeling like I'm trapped & I'm wrapped
In my own prison
Searching for my heaven
But hell is burning deep within

How can I escape
When it's happening under my skin
I don't care if its fate
I despise it, I hate it, I quit

Sick of walking around the house
Feeling like punching the walls
Plus my knuckles are still busted
From the last time that you called

The last time that I texted
Can't help from feeling rejected
Because the damn iMessage
I sent says the time that you read it

Cuts like a fresh scars
My flesh has been charred
My heart has been broke
Exhale the smoke

I choke but don't die
Yes I try, this is why
You're worth the time spent
Time & time again

Friends telling me to write about it
And be strong
But you mean too much
To just become another song

CHORUS
I can't go on (She said I can't go on)
If your not by my side
And I can't sleep alone
Since you walked out that night
Please don't let me go
Cuz this is where, this is right where you belong
Right where you belong

Verse 2
She said now minutes feel like hours
Hours feel like days
Days are weeks, weeks are months
I'm more weak than I claim

Smash the hour glass
Our past went by too quick
I need to grab the sand with my hand
Put it back in the top

And start from scratch
Please say you're cool with that
I'll glue all the glass after the fact
I promise that

I don't want you to burn yourself
Even though I've been through hell
My loves unconditional
Letting go's an option now

Remember when we met
It was automatic
I was drawn to you
Like we were attached with a magnet

Not written cement
Not scratched in to plastic
Not permanent in anyway
But I wished it was lasting

Too much on your plate?
Throw the scraps in the basket
Tie up the bag, take out the trash
With the rest of the maggots

I've got a heart of gold
That's treated like a lump of coal
But I'll still keep you warm
On any night that you get cold

CHORUS
I can't go on (She said I can't go on)
If your not by my side
And I can't sleep alone
Since you walked out that night
Please don't let me go
Cuz this is where, this is right where you belong
Right where you belong

BRIDGE
Minutes feel like hours
Hours feel like days
Days are weeks, weeks are months
I'm more weak than I claim

Smash the hour glass
Our past went by too quick
I need to grab the sand with my hand
Put it back in the top

Minutes feel like hours
Hours feel like days
Days are weeks, weeks are months
I'm more weak than I claim

Smash the hour glass
Our past went by too quick
I need to grab the sand with my hand
Put it back in the top

Verse 3
Some say when you can't sleep
It's because you're awake
In someone else's dreams
Don't assume, it just makes an ASS of U and ME
Go ahead, write it down
Maybe then you'll see

And HOPE stands for, Hold On Pain Ends
I hope that's true, cuz some wounds
Feel like they won't mend
I won't bend, won't break, can't shake it off
Ttry to act strong when you're gone
I know where you belong

CHORUS
I can't go on (She said I can't go on)
If your not by my side
And I can't sleep alone
Since you walked out that night
Please don't let me go
Cuz this is where, this is right where you belong
Right where you belong

I can't go on
If your not by my side
And I can't sleep alone
Since you walked out that night
Please don't let me go
Cuz this is where, this is right where you belong
Right where you belong
Track Name: Life In The Fast Lane
Verse 1
Life is passing by
Cruising at the speed of light
To most its Live and let live
To some it's live and let die

I'll bring the guns and Roses
Like slash and axel rode in
The symphony and the damn composers
Guitars & Pianos get rock n rolling

The songs are all sung
The stories written
You better Make the best of this intermission
can't go back, from the beginning
But there's time for you, to change the ending

From here on out
Quit the bullshitting
Time is running out
The rest is unwritten

Minutes counting down
Hands are still ticking
Going coo coo now
Must be a screw missing

Tighten it up
Grip your vice
Fight for love
You only get one try

Keep PMA
In your mind
Positive Mental Attitude
All the time

You can't go back
Can't press rewind
Cuz Life is moving forward
All the time

To the top of the food chain
You gonna climb
Never stop till these fools give me my shine

CHORUS
Whether we live enough 'fore we die
Living life in the fast lane
Watching it all fly by
Living life in the fast lane
Moving at the speed of light
Living life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane

Whether we live enough 'fore we die
Living life in the fast lane
Watching it all fly by
Living life in the fast lane
Moving at the speed of light
Living life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane

Verse 2
Since I was born a lion
Might as well take a bite and try it
Told you, My mouths the muscle
See, I've torn the muzzle, now I'm off my diet

See its hard to keep quiet my words are riots
With weapons drawn
In other words, words can kill
So I Sharpened my skills
To bring the stabbing on

Create a massacre
Life is moving too fast
To grab today
It's slipping through my hands

One hand on the wheel
One foot on the gas
No looking back
One life and one chance

One day in a flash
All will be gone
Relaxed looking back
On the days you were young

Like where'd the time go
Replay in slow mo
Keep faith in god
My riffle and my bible

Ill take it in
Till my eyes close
And fade to black
Like they tied a blind fold

Around my head
To slow my speed
Instead of living in the seat of an F-16

Get the focus back
Instead of sippin jack
If you slipped off track
Get the train attached

Get the wheels latched in
Your Destination
Will only be determined by
Determination

CHORUS
Whether we live enough 'fore we die
Living life in the fast lane
Watching it all fly by
Living life in the fast lane
Moving at the speed of light
Living life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane

Whether we live enough 'fore we die
Living life in the fast lane
Watching it all fly by
Living life in the fast lane
Moving at the speed of light
Living life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane

Verse 3
When you're laying on your back
The only place that you have is to look up
Reach out and reach your dreams
Even if your still running from your nightmare

Is it a nightmare
When you're looking in your mirror
Are you getting so steamed
That the heat from your skin
Is going and fogging up your perfect picture

Wipe it off
Make it clearer
Look yourself in the eyes
Say I won't surrender

I'm a survivor
Now it's time to
Take my machete, as a reminder
And slash my enemies
All down to their knees

One by one, then start a shooting spree
It's only just begun
223s, in my lungs
And my vocals are AR-15s

CHORUS
Whether we live enough 'fore we die
Living life in the fast lane
Watching it all fly by
Living life in the fast lane
Moving at the speed of light
Living life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane

Whether we live enough 'fore we die
Living life in the fast lane
Watching it all fly by
Living life in the fast lane
Moving at the speed of light
Living life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane
Life in the fast lane
Track Name: Diamond
Verse 1
Ryan took on the pressure
Pressure made him a diamond
Diamond that kept shining
The light that kept on guiding

God always right beside him
Gave him someone to confide in
Saved his life more than twice
Held him up kept him fighting

Believing without seeing
That is faith, that's the meaning
Endless love has no ceiling
No limits on timeless feelings

I'm feeling sick of concealing
The confidence in my being
Seeing the fact the frequently
I've been leaking my genius

Sacrificing like Jesus
For everyone I believe in
Nail me to the cross
My opinions on pins and needles

Sharp as talons on eagles
The evil in all the people
Will rip your ribs into meals
To fuel, and feed the evil

Be careful there is no sequel
One life one chance one people
I'm positive we're all equal
Lets multiple how I feel

Instead of negatives
Dividing us like there's a problem
Just take the pressure
and let it press ya till you're a diamond

CHORUS
You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond
You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond
You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond, a diamond

You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond
You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond
You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond, a diamond

Verse 2
The pressure inside was building
From my feet to the ceiling
Of my skull then it sunk in
My brain how can I function

Like this I twist and burn one
Light it, admit I'm certain
I've already determined
Ain't curling up till the curtains

Close and I'm blindfolded
From the words she has spoken
My soul is frost bit, oh shit
I'm skating on an ocean

I used to crowd surf upon
When they gave an outstretched arm
Then gave me two upper hands
On top of their palms I stand

Took on so much pressure
Over the years it steered me
Veered me left of center
Head on collision nearly

But fearlessly I press on
With the pressure of ten string arms
Knit my shit together
Like I'm stitching a damn collage

But I gave this chick my heart
And I don't wanna restart
I hope we snap back like a rubber band
When we pull apart

Sick of pacing and trying
Inside feel like I'm dying
When people look at you they see blue eyes
I see two diamonds

CHORUS
You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond
You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond
You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond, a diamond

You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond
You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond
You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond, a diamond

You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond
You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond
You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond, a diamond

You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond
You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond
You take the pressure on
Cuz you're a diamond, a diamond
Track Name: Losing Connection
Verse 1
I know it's not how we planned it
But we played the cards we were handed
Had tricks up your sleeve like some magic

That magic turned in to damage
Had bandanas wrapped like a bandit
Stole my soul at gunpoint, no handed

Just by the glance that you shot at me
It hit me right in my artery
Now it's hard to breathe
Left to write and bleed

I bleed while I write ironically
This pen only spills out red ink
Then it dries and sinks into minds like me

Who write all their feelings on to a page
For all the cold times that are hard to face
For all the old lives that I can't erase
Here's a pencil, stencil and trace

Out a new outline for your future lives
Those who hide, disguise their life
They make it impossible to step inside
Would do anything to never let their hearts collide

The middle of the word believe spells lie
You see deceit, walks a thin line
It goes and finds words that's designed
For us to trust in, gets between and hides

Anger is one letter short of danger
Strange is one R short of stranger
In one second friends are strangers
My friend I can't think of nothing stranger

CHORUS
And I can still remember when
Remember when we lost connection, we lost connection
And I can still remember when
Remember when we lost connection, we lost connection

Verse 2
Love & affection, I love the infection
Felt your breath on my neck when I stepped in
Now there must be a storm that has swept in
All of the sudden, we lost all connection

All the colors have blackened
Get a match stick, get it lit quick, grab it
Fasten the bulb back in to the wall
Jiggle the switch, nothing at all

You must be lost in the atmosphere
Since that day skies aren't as clear
I must be lost too, anchored in anger
Sank my ship, a statistical sailor

Holding gold in a treasure chest
At the bottom of the ocean losing breath
Hoping its open before I'm swept
Back to the shore where I'm deep in debt
And I ain't sleeping yet

I'm awake and it's pouring, rain outside
My insides ain't foreign, to the tides
That are rising I'm warning, all alive
Wanna survive get soaring, to the skies

Take flight like an eagle
Use your eyes to identify people
Who decide to be deceitful and evil
You'll be surprised who cuts off the signal

I'm getting lost in the riddle
I must admit its one hell of a pickle
I must admit I'm discouraged a little
I've been through shit, I've got courage to give ya

I've earned my badge of honor
Shield your heart the past will haunt ya
Yield you never know who will cross ya
A pretty little kitty turned into a monster

CHORUS
And I can still remember when
Remember when we lost connection, we lost connection
And I can still remember when
Remember when we lost connection, we lost connection

BRIDGE
One year can be the best and the worst
At the same time be a blessing and a curse
I felt so alive, then I woke up in a hearse
Thought I found heaven but I was sleeping in church

How can one year be the best and the worst
At the same time be a blessing and a curse
I felt so alive, then I woke up in a hearse
Thought I found heaven but I was sleeping in church

CHORUS
And I can still remember when
Remember when we lost connection, we lost connection
And I can still remember when
Remember when we lost connection, we lost connection
Track Name: Falling On Deaf Ears
Verse 1
I'm sorry for the mess, and all the stress
Sorry for the pressure I caused you
But I never felt, so many emotions folded up into one
That it made me feel nausea

So I guess I'm confused, Where did my heart go
When I handed it over in your bed
I said to be careful and don't let go
But you carelessly ran around with it instead

3 words I felt them, 3 words I said them
3 words I meant then you drifted off
Now all that's ironic
Cuz I had 333 behind my ear when we lifted off

But I ain't no psychic
You were my sidekick
The partner that I would do crime with
Now you've got that red show string
you stole from my wrist
Then you put it around your ankle
and tied it and said

CHORUS
Let's take this slowly
It's moving too fast for me
Moving too fast

Let's take this slowly
It's moving too fast for me
Moving too fast

Verse 2
So was it my fault
The speed that we crashed at
Because the last thing I remember
We were both in the front seat
The peddle had both of our feet
Pressing on it together

So what now
You're gonna jump out
And leave me on this road that I'm facing
Forget the speed that the car is moving
Cuz the only thing I'm feeling now
Is my pulse racing

And I'm heading for a brick wall
How can I avoid it
Can't see through the thick fog
Besides that I'm ticked off
Cuz I finally had you
and acted out of character
And fucked up

So I guess I'm a fuck up
Now I'm stuck in this rut
Reaching for your hand
To pull me up
But I can't even reach you
With a call or a text
So how can I expect to get a lift up?

CHORUS
Let's take this slowly
It's moving too fast for me
Moving too fast

Let's take this slowly
It's moving too fast for me
Moving too fast
Track Name: 50/50
Verse 1
I packed my bags
Grabbed some cash and my car keys
Not looking back
As I drove away, I said peace
My mistake, I forgot to put up my index
Well i guess, true feelings show, thru sign language

I reached the end of the rope
And my stomach knottin
feels like my fingers in sockets
the situations shockin

Drove to the end of the road
Ive got no destination
Never knowing which way to go
I'm only hesitating

Should I turn right or left?
Or should I turn around?
If I do I might as well burn the fucking house to the ground
Because a home ain't a home
With out the M or E
It's just a ho who's left all alone
Trying to feel complete

You say you need to breath?
Stop the cigarette puffing
You claim you need to be free?
I ain't been handcuffing

I ain't your husband
But if you want I can give you more
If you're pushing than I'm driving
my car right through your front door

CHORUS
Well now I, know all too well
The wrong way and, when I take it
Mistakes I've made my share
Well now I, know all too well
The right moves and, when I make them
So I'm 50/50 there

Verse 2
So I'm continuing on
I choose to go left
Hoping the road less traveled
Still holds the most gifts

Since that roads used less
It only makes sense
And since, cents addsup
I'm gonna cash in

I've made my own mistakes
Some at others expenses
I've fell in love with snakes
I've injected their venom

I've felt the fangs of hot dames
On my flesh
Should have avoided the choices
to let the poison in

I said goodbye to the old me, as I drove in
And said hello to the new me
when we touched skin

I was a fool for a wolf
Who wore sheep's hair
Couldn't see through the wool
No matter how long that I'd stare

All my vision was blurry
I lost focus
All my dreams, I cast out to sea
Everyone noticed

I was the only one
To swim out to the ocean
Before my future drown
And grab it back
While its still floating

CHORUS
Well now I, know all too well
The wrong way and, when I take it
Mistakes I've made my share
Well now I, know all too well
The right moves and, when I make them
So I'm 50/50 there

Verse 3
You see with me what I've found
It's all 50/50
I don't always take the route
That's all swept and pretty

I don't care if the ground
Is all trashed and filthy
As long as I make it out
I know that it won't kill me

Do what you're scared to do
Pack an extra parachute
Grab another pair of shoes
And a suit that's bulletproof

Don't let it shatter you
Relationships, scatter too
It's all about your attitude
Chill and have a laugh or two

Show some gratitude
Even if they're mad at you
Forgive and forget all the bullshit
that they put you through

Or just say forget that
I'll wave and let it fly past
Is it the wrong or the right path
I got a 50/50 chance

CHORUS
Well now I, know all too well
The wrong way and, when I take it
Mistakes I've made my share
Well now I, know all too well
The right moves and, when I make them
So I'm 50/50 there
