Underneath anything rational hides a madness And when you look for sanity all you find is a mess Mistakes are only natural when you're moving too fast Before you go and do anything radical remember past will stay past Now all I want is a dance all night all night Dance all night all night Your fears they're gonna disappear by the time you get home Listen to the birds, you can find 'em here why not give it a go? I absorb any kind of energy so don't push it too far But as long as the sun keeps coming back to me I ain't taking it hard Now I'll dance all night all night Dance all night all night I've become obsessed over a success, can't sleep Teach me how not to be afraid of failing Had a dream about fish, I wonder what it means... Who would've thought taking care of your hopes is harder than it seems? Don't you know the grass is always greener when you try to compare? Can you be sure that grass is cleaner? If you can't, you know it's not fair Now we gon' dance all night all night Dance all night all night

In A Rush 03:10
I ain’t trynna start a war, but the things I hold in mind can’t stay there Well they could, but not for long After a day or two It might burst somewhere Hey mirror on the wall I’m not gonna wait for you to answer Man, It makes no sense at all to rely on someone else’s anchor Forgive me for not knowing how to hush Holding my tongue could negate a crash What can you say, I’m always in a rush, Always in a rush... I should know myself better Thoughts are so extreme, it’s like a tornado We’re all made of the same matter Some are not as good at hiding as others Forgive me for not knowing how to hush... I could just walk instead of running (but I’m always in a rush) Don’t wanna spend my life on whining (but I’m always in a rush) Things fall out of my hands, My mind is (always in a rush) I gotta find a silver lining so I’m always in a rush Always in a rush...

Trynna stay positive, find a way Live our lives, live the day Yet we got so many bills to pay Things to lose, roles to play Remember when your momma told you back then "you want results - you gotta plan"? Well, I tried this one, didn't work, not for me... Gonna stay a kid cause I can Guess what, I don't wanna grow up Don't wait for me, don't wait for me Guess what, I don't wanna grow up Don't wait for me, don't wait Honestly, all we want is a thrill, Some extra love, extra feel Lift your head, take a look at the clouds, sit on a tree, climb a hill. We used to take it to the extreme Run in the woods, Live a dream I refuse to be scared of anything, I'm pushing it Away from me Guess what, I don't wanna grow up Don't wait for me, don't wait for me... You better learn how to tame your thoughts Let it go, feel yo guts Can’t just go around and throw that energy Go love yourself, reach that destiny If you keep focusing on your dream You might reach someone, you might find a team I refuse to be scared of anything...

Regimen 03:39
If it’s a sign, why not embrace it? Opportunities, can’t always chase ‘em From this point on, I gotta face reality Nothing’s for sure, no one is special It ain’t about you, though you got potential We need a cure, our ego is simply over-done This rehab is so irritating Life itself intoxicates me I’m out of ways to ease the pain That I, myself, make So If you wanna make it happen, OK There’s no alternative, you gotta change your ways Don’t even think about it, it’s only a phase When the water gets too deep and you can’t stay The shore ain’t that far Adrenaline, don’t take it from me Body and soul, can’t live without it Can’t skip all that noise, I’m destructed By my messy thoughts Therapy is so frustrating But I’m the one who let the toxic in It's hard to tell what’s better when you only know one lane So If you wanna make it happen, OK... Can’t tell right from wrong, shit is too subjective Life of excess is a matter of perspective Why do we need all these extra stuff in our mouths? Fear of missing out, that’s why we’re blurry I want a big house, I’m in a hurry Take a deep breath, swallow the pride that’s in your throat Forget about the Instant pleasures Now is not the time to measure (things If we treat ourselves like treasure We could heal

Remedy 04:09
Pull her over you’ll feel that wonder then you’ll see a light No one told her but she could stop the thunder with her eyes Heart of clover she has it’s always under her control at night I wanna be her remedy save her from her enemies I wanna be her remedy I’ll catch her every time she needs Please don’t cry you got a pretty smile don’t let it go to waste Times are hard, I know seems like skies are falling on you Good times are on their way soon the light will come and push the gloom I wanna be your remedy I’ll be your guide I’ll save you from your enemies I wanna be your remedy I’ll catch you everytime you need I wanna be your remedy… You could be the wonder...

Win Win 03:28
Is it more complicated than I thought? Deeper, I need to dig deeper than that I'll keep on moving no matter what I can feel it turning into more than just thoughts Let me show you a few tricks that I've learned It could help me realize how fast I have turned into all those things that I had always dreamt of I think that now I really understand love If I close my eyes, will I start dreaming? When I get to an edge I know I’m breathing (Even when I’m high I know that) living without no colours has no meaning It's not more complicated than I thought, they're just scared of things they find too big for their hearts See, I am not going to change even if it might seem strange When the lights are off I'm never alone Guess I’ll fight these voices on my own If I close my eyes, will I start dreaming? and when I'll get to an edge, I know I'm breathing (Even when I'm high, I know that) living without no colours has no meaning and as long as emotions keep rising, I know I'm living

Is it wrong to want it all all at the same time? Can’t focus on one goal it makes it harder to climb Can’t we simply satisfy our unconventional minds? Where do I begin when I wake up in the morning I never wake up on time I’m not ready... If I could only eat the world I would give it a bite Not sure where I would start but it has to be daylight I can’t take it slow I wanna go let me be If I wanna grow eleven toes just let it be I’m falling in love with anyone I see but it ends after one or two weeks I’m not ready… Still unsteady… Intolerant to so many things in my life Doesn’t mean that I can’t do a good job as a wife I’ll give it a go till something good will come up till then can’t take it slow, I wanna go let me be Wanna grow eleven toes let it be We came into this world alone we just gotta be free

We used to chase each other in the school yard, now we’re chasing time Leaving our emotions in the back seat, trynna hide the grimes When did we become so unprotected, trynna find the answer in a glass of wine? If we can’t accept the unexpected, How do we expect to see the light? The bigger the risk the bigger the addiction that’s what makes you hot I need to stop wasting all my money it’s not like I have a lot I’ll stretch another edge till I find a way to keep what I've got Habits aren’t meant to stay forever hopefully they’re not The bigger the risk, the bigger the addiction... Why do we assume, instead of asking? We don’t even try We’ll drown in a big sea full of masks, until we won’t have to hide There’s no way I’m giving up so quickly the sun could be my guide If I can’t accept the unexpected, How do I expect to see the light? The bigger the risk, the bigger the addiction...

Time To Talk 03:48
I’ll tell you something, I don’t wanna be a sideman When I look at her I'm looking for a hiding place When I close my eyes I fear I might be drowning You don’t see me as I am, I guess you’re blind then Let me tell you.. She doesn’t seem like she could be a good amusement She doesn't even like your taste In music Haven’t seen you for a while, you must be doing fine I haven’t been here for a while but we still got time

Maybe Not 01:44
I never like taking things slow There's so much shit I wanna know Can’t even tell you what I want and I ain't really good at putting on a front I won’t insist, there's no point in this, sometime you gotta fall I'll bite my lips, I will persist, I will catch that ball there’s so many ways to take, not sure which one is better and I get more and more confused as I look for a ladder Hate looking to the sides, but I can’t seem to stop my eyes, I want more, I want more Don't wanna sit here in the dark How do I kill that evil shark? Maybe not
