Track Name: 5,000 Candles In The Wind
5,000 Candles In The Wind
Music and Lyrics by Sean Smith

VERSE
Reach for the ceiling ‘cause right now we’re inside
In a minute we’ll be ready, ready to set our sights on the sky
Cause we are the masses, the ones who have been shoved aside
Unball your fist now, open your hand up for another to fit in side

CHORUS
When we team up the results never vary
We always set it off
For the good and the glory
The scars and the stories
Cause this is all we have

VERSE
We face all our ghosts here, and beat down our demons
Eviscerate all our frowns and turn them on their back upside down
We are the reason to pick your feet up off the ground
(GET UP GET UP)
You see those around you
(THESE ARE MY FRIENDS)
Are really standing with you
(UNTIL THE END)

CHORUS
When we team up the results never vary
We always set it off
For the good and the glory
The scars and the stories
Cause this is all we have
Track Name: No, Dude, it IS Cool
No, Dude, It IS Cool
Music by Brenden McBrayer
Lyrics by Sean Smith and Brenden McBrayer

VERSE
We can leave with no trace of our sorrow, drive to Vegas or Tennesee
Finally see this world through the eyes of a destitute musician, and be free

I would give it up for the atlantic
i would give it all up for maps and roads
i would trade all of my possesions,
i would just get up and go

PRE CHORUS
If you only knew what i see when i look in the mirror
You don't want to hear this, prose and congegated purpose
Leaving myself behind more than i could ever catch up

CHORUS
Wading through this silence i don't know how to do this anymore
Feel lke it's not worth waiting, feel like there's nothing worth waiting for
Sink alone in the Willamette drag me back to shore
Just so i wake up and reverse this

VERSE
You can tell me all you want to calm down but there's not a chance to stop my brain is dead weight now
If Dre can get back up than i'm sure that i can now, can now, can now

PRE CHORUS
If you only knew what i see when i look in the mirror
You don't want to hear this, prose and congegated purpose
Leaving myself behind more than i could ever catch up

CHORUS
Wading through this silence i don't know how to do this anymore
Feel lke it's not worth waiting, feel like there's nothing worth waiting for
Sink alone in the Willamette drag me back to shore
Just so i wake up and reverse this

BRIDGE
IT'S ALL ABOUT THE RIGHT STATE OF MIND, GIVE ME MY SPACE AND I'LL BE JUST FINE
EVEN THE MOST STRONG FIND A WAY TO FALL DOWN SOMETIME

CHORUS
Wading through this silence i don't know how to do this anymore
Feel lke it's not worth waiting, feel like there's nothing worth waiting for
Sink alone in the Willamette drag me back to shore
Just so i wake up and reverse this

OUTRO
Wading through all this silence (and I can't let you go now)
DRAG ME BACK TO SHORE

The Outpour (Tongue Vs Sword)
Music and Lyrics by Sean Smith

VERSE
We come to give you the two's and threes
And keep you up off your feet
It's the least we can do 'cause your hands keep me afloat like driftwood at sea

You know we've got something in common no matter your dress no matter your creed
We all stand for one thing that 's what matters the most
We're not alone
Together we are free
So leave your hand away from the bottle, that's for fun it's not always the key
You can get drunk and you can get loaded just remember that honesty will set you free

CHORUS
I can't believe it's been so long
Since I took myself less seriously
I've been stressing and making my life a mess
When I just needed to relax and now I see

So come with me and try to find a better way
We're all the same in the end we've all got dues to pay
The way we act will ultimately be the end of us
That's why I say with heart this time we need to TEAM UP

VERSE
I AM THE VOICE OF THOSE WHO HAVE NONE
I WILL LEAD YOU IN A CHORUS THAT CANNOT BE DENIED
WE WERE RAISED TO THINK THIS WORLD IS SO COLD
WHILE WE SIT AND TAKE ABUSE I WILL NOT BELIEVE WHAT I'M TOLD

We come out with fists swinging
It gets better (JUST DON'T LET GO)
Make oppresive ignorant, offensive bigots know that now is not the time to stand for such unintelligence

CHORUS
I can't believe it's been so long
Since I took myself less seriously
I've been stressing and making my life a mess
When I just needed to relax and now I see

So come with me and try to find a better way
We're all the same in the end we've all got dues to pay
The way we act will ultimately be the end of us
That's why I say with heart this time we need to TEAM UP

OUTRO
We don't have to stand for
Days go by, and I never seemed to question why, we need to team up
I'm Beginning to think, that we're losing sight of things, only together, only together
We don't have to stand for THIS!
