Track Name: These Are The Days
///TDC - These Are The Days

January's hopes and dreams
Ride on salty snowy streets
I've been holding onto nothing
Until something comes around

Now February's came and gone
Cigarette butts on the lawn,
I've been holding onto nothing
until something came around

These are days
I won't let nothing waste away
These are the moments I'll save
And let nothing stop us
From chasing what we want.

I've got incentives,
I'm content but I meant that I know where I'm headed.
You're heart is only part of where I am.
Call it experience, you can call it mistakes
You're so delirious, its more about give and take
I'm ready to make my move,
Yeah I'm ready to make my move on you.

These are days
I won't let nothing waste away
These are the moments I'll save
Let nothing stop us
From chasing what we want.

This time, I know I really wanna go
I hope that you know I really wanna
Save your last words until I'm on my own

January's hopes and dreams
Brought me back to where I needed to be
I'll stay true and follow down this road
Well I hope you do the same
and your ambitions never fade.

These are days
I won't let nothing waste away
These are the moments I'll save
And let nothing stop us
From chasing what we want.

This time, I know I really wanna go
I hope that you know I really wanna
Save your last words until I'm on my own
Track Name: On My Own (Feat. AJ of The Dangerous Summer)
///TDC - On My Own

Stay clear of me she says.
I'm just another one, you're another
straight face with straight lies you as swear to God,
Intending deception but we'll carry on.
Talk is cheap. Talk is cheap, yeah you know this well.

So huddle your friends, call the bluff,
I'll write this all off soon enough.
I know I'm not perfect
But I didn't deserve this.

I will continue on my own...
I will continue on my own...

AJ from The Dangerous Summer:
My breathing's unsteady, I want to be ready for anything.
I'm confident, just positive things will change.
I refuse to play God, no I'm merely just a pawn.
Praying for someone to gain from my loss, I live
Only for me, I guess I just needed to see.
I was raised well enough to know things just ain't fair,
and how life is less structurally sound than this chair.
I'm so over this...
How everybody else is always full of shit.
Now everyday flows to the next, we just can't gain control of it.
But I'm not losing stride

With all the things I have to be, save me from insanity now.
I promise a hero
Remember when the gravity never had a chance to bring us down.
Yeah, I'll be your hero

But I can't continue on my own.
I can't continue you on my own.

My breathing's unsteady, I want to be ready for anything.
I'm positive, just positive things will change.
Track Name: The Author
///TDC - The Author

We never fall, we never crawl, so we live to never dream.
It takes people like yourself to make me see that it's all in how we change.
When it always stays, it always stays the same.
Fall, you're in critical condition, falling sick of repetition
As you crawl your way back home,
Just so you can sleep.
Just so you can sleep.

Maybe we just need time
You will see that I am the Author of my life and I'm still writing.
You're on the same page clouded mind and waiting on the world
Tell me, when has that worked?
Well I'll never desert you.
No, I'll never desert you.

Stay awake and seize the day, I'll take another 10 hours on endorphins and monster.
And when it's all in stone I'll be far from home, so far from home.
And as you're cautiously living, like counting your calories.
You're lost in all the routines, to put it loosely, it's a shame.

Now tell me, what is there to lose
when every mistake that's been made led us right here?
Give it all or nothing, just to stand for something this time, this time.
And if I had my way in this moment,
we would've never fallen short before.
Took every open door. Do we have that anymore
or answers for the questions that we still ignore?
Can we restore the dream we swore we'd never stop from working toward?
And I'll, I'll never quit or get sick of this.
Cause you weren't designed to, you weren't designed to fail!

Stay awake and seize the day, I'll take another 10 hours on endorphins and monster.
And when it's all in stone I'll be far from home, so far from home.
And as you're cautiously living, like counting your calories.
You're lost in all the routines, to put it loosely, it's a shame.
Track Name: Transitions
///TDC - Transitions

Go, make your way towards home
but first through the unknown.
It's paved unmarked and you're all alone.

You're worn and tired but still kicking and screaming,
We're uninspired lacking something with meaning.

Now, this lacks appeal
Traveling in time I wish was real
If only I could taste what stay concealed,
Then maybe I'd think twice to let this go.

To let this go
Traveling in time I wish was real,
Traveling in time I wish was real.

A shot in the dark you could say the least
will always be a memory.
I'll look to the future in front of me,
Cause the past is dead and our time was brief.

A shot in the dark you can say the least
will always be a memory.
I'll look to the future in front of me,
Cause the past is dead when we were young and free.

And time keeps counting on and counting on.
Time just keeps counting on and counting on.
Time just keeps counting on and counting on.
We're just getting older it keeps getting colder since those days,
I remember when we were so brave and never pretend to be ok,
But I guess it went out the door when you said goodbye.

But I guess we lost it so I'll cut my losses,
I'll move to Jersey and you'll move to Boston

Go, make your way towards home
but first through the unknown.
It's paved unmarked and you're all alone.
Track Name: Fireworks
///TDC - Fireworks

When every star that's in the sky eventually comes crashing down,
I'll have you safe in my arms.
Is that enough for you to stick around?
I swear, that you won't regret this if you stay.

Everything just fades away when we meet eyes,
Fireworks ignite inside us tonight

You fall asleep as we're listening to Lydia,
but I'm still up here next to you and thinking of,
All of the wrongs I've done
But I must have done something right, because...

Everything just fades away when we meet eyes,
Fireworks ignite inside us tonight

I'd stop the clock and cherish the moment,
The world could end and we wouldn't notice.
Say it like you mean it, Promise you'll never let go.

Forget everyone, we are the kings and queens of this city.
Say it like you mean it, Promise you'll never let go.

Everything just fades away when we met
Fireworks ignite inside us tonight
Track Name: Pursuit of Perfect
///TDC - Pursuit of Perfect

I'm surrounded by white noise, I can't think.
And today feels like it's on repeat. I got no sleep,
Trying to make my way through this life.

I had much bigger plans and things to do.
But this dead end town makes it so hard to move
on to something new.

Something new.

I'm here today, but will be farther away.
I could bottle up the ocean air and send it to your door.
Though it kills me to leave,
Part of me still believes that
Both our worlds will collide
Somewhere down the line.

I know that you have your dreams too,
to move to L.A. and pursue the big screen,
I hope you succeed in everything you do

We're in constant pursuit of perfect
And it's all we want
Yeah, it's all we want

Perfect never seems to ever be in reach
But we fight to and I'd kill to find the piece I need.

I'm here today, but will be farther away.
I could bottle up the ocean air and send it to your door.
Though it kills me to leave,
Part of me still believes that
Both our worlds will collide
Somewhere down the line.
Track Name: Squirt Guns with Real Bullets
///TDC - Squirt Guns with Real Bullets

I've been searching for the right words, the right words to say
You spoke with such an elegance like the grace of ballet
Now its just noise,
My stomach twists and twirls
Man, I just gotta sit.

Cause everything inside of me says I should leave.
I'll take a chance with hide and seek, no finding me
Cause I'll brave being lonely
When I cave, I won't come to you.

I'll sway like palm trees in Miami
Just this phones gotta stop,
a cold drink on the rocks will do.

I'm grinding my teeth to your words what a haunting sound.
If you were the same as you were we'd be making ground
And I hope that everything will be alright.
Yeah, but this anchor keeps on holding me down.

How did we end up here? Such a monumental disaster.
I could see crystal clear that there was nothing at all.
And with how many times I'd fall,
Honestly I couldn't be more of a sucker
But it means nothing at all
For you to see me this way.

Now I'll burn the bridge we walked upon
So you can swim your way to get across
I'm drowning every single enemy along the way.

And I'll topple to the floor,
Cause you were the last one in line I expected to start a war.

Yeah, you really let yourself go.

And I'm pissed I even made this trip, so I'll stand
Just to breathe so I can say
I'm not leaving, 'til I get what I came for

So how did we end up here? Such a monumental disaster.
I could see crystal clear that there was nothing at all.
And with how many times I'd fall,
Honestly I couldn't be more of a sucker
But it means nothing at all
For you to see me this way.

I feel the colors inside of me, they're turning from red to black
I feel the monster inside of me and I'm not coming back.

Neither a king or queen should ever sit upon their throne, feast upon their own.
But you can lay me down…
Lay me down and tear me bone from muscle
Lay me down, no I wont even struggle.
Track Name: Walkers
///TDC - Walkers

Heavy heart and a heavy head, feeling just like death - at least on the brink of it.
There's nothing worse than losing everything
And our hope is all that still remains
It's a rocky road ahead and the future just depends I guess it's best we spent the moments that we had on love.
And for now we can rebuild, we can restore what we once called home.
We will get what we deserve.
They'll have to bite the bullet.
And I will -

Carry on! - Never surrender! Sometimes I struggle to sleep, this shit is humbling me.
(Running to beat the wolves)
Chewed up and spit out, either get out or save yourself.
Carry on! - Never surrender! Sometimes I struggle to sleep, this shit is humbling me.
(Running to beat the wolves)
Chewed up and spit out, either get out or everyone take cover.

With bloody fists, yeah, we're beaten and broken and shattered to bits,
Though I can't say we're better off, no.
Cause there might be a better time to walk away.
It's a rocky road ahead and the future just depends I guess it's best we spent the moments that we had on love.
And for now I am becoming cold and numb to it all.

Carry on! - Never surrender! Sometimes I struggle to sleep, this shit is humbling me.
(Running to beat the wolves)
Chewed up and spit out, either get out or save yourself.
Carry on! - Never surrender! Sometimes I struggle to sleep, this shit is humbling me.
(Running to beat the wolves)
Chewed up and spit out, either get out or everyone take cover.

With cuts on my skin and struggle within, I've tripped over pebbles and mountains,
But I know where I've been, could careless for them
And choose not to dance moves around this.
I've always been straight forward and I want this to be evident, so -
You won't stop me now.

Yeah, come on.
Give me whatever you got, I'd like to see you try.
I will end this here and now.
