Track Name: This Old Life ft. Emily Otis
Chorus:
This old world don’t feel like it end
And this old life don’t feel like a friend
I know I’m just here
I know I’m just here
I don’t feel like wondering round no more
I don’t remember what I’ve been running for
I know I’m just here
I know I’m just here

Verse 1:
I wake up to the same alarm the same face the same tomorrow
The same waste of space no lace no charm just some masonry
Encasing my own hate of me basically put a date on me
Cuz I’m already best used by painfully
This complaceny completes the trace of me
I feel the latency of what they do then what I feel
Fate me to is just some random bad day act
I haven’t had a chance to make you see
But graciously you won’t even waste your time on hating me

Chorus:
This old world don’t feel like it end
And this old life don’t feel like a friend
I know I’m just here
I know I’m just here
I don’t feel like wondering round no more
I don’t remember what I’ve been running for
I know I’m just here
I know I’m just here:

Verse 2:
Existence is this all there is or did I miss
My indifference to your life is more about physics then metaphysical limits
Listen its just its you fire your ballistics cuz you don’t like the other guy’s mystic
Shit kid this is the same fight we started since existence
And a thousand years from this instant they fire the same missles burn the same witches
Nobody listens were dismissive and missing the point this is
Come to grips with time check yours I’ve already missed it

Chorus:
This old world don’t feel like it end
And this old life don’t feel like a friend
I know I’m just here
I know I’m just here
I don’t feel like wondering round no more
I don’t remember what I’ve been running for
I know I’m just here
I know I’m just here
Track Name: Would You Save My Soul - Hey There ft. Audrey Robinson and Graham Howland
Would you save my soul if you knew
Would you save my soul if you knew
Would you save my soul if you knew what I'd been through
Would you save my soul if you knew

Would you set your feet a fire
And walk through fields of briar
Would you push me up higher and higher
And help me to aspire to walk them pearly gates with you

Would you save my soul if you knew
Would you save my soul if you knew
Would you save my soul or let me go
Would you save my soul if you knew

Hey there hey there friend of mine
Won't you help me out this one last time
And be there won't you there be there for me
Hey there hey there friend of mine
I don't deserve the time you'll find
But be there won't you be there for me

Back in the day we open containered a ticket
Driving over the limit vintage blue rusted Plymoth
Whipping shitties while doing a whip it
Who turn to hit it
Get the wah wah wah for less then a minute
Time less then infinite now I'm bless to be in it
Test what i'm givin yes this mess that I'm livin
Unless I'm forgivin' I'm here to swim in this sinnin'
Grippin is slippin to come out of this prison I'm livin

Hey there hey there friend of mine
Won't you help me out this one last time
And be there won't you there be there for me
Hey there hey there friend of mine
I don't deserve the time you'll find
But be there won't you be there for me

Our weekend used to be a whole lot of freedom
Two bottles of Tussin gotta be the DM
I don't mean to be a heathen
But believin' in Eden aint gotta be the meanin' of life
I've been meanin' to write but I've been deep in this hole
These demons at night always fienin to fight
Keep a hold of my soul I don't evenknow when I might
Find my way out this weighted this hated page of my life
Time to turn it I might earn it tonight

Hey there hey there friend of mine
Won't you help me out this one last time
And be there won't you there be there for me
Hey there hey there friend of mine
I don't deserve the time you'll find
But be there won't you be there for me
Track Name: Ain't No Reason ft. Graham Howland
Preachers on the podiums speaking of saints
Prophets on the sidewalk begging for change
Old ladies laughing on the fire escape
Cursing my goddamn name
I got a basket full of lemons they all taste the same
A window and a pigeon with a broken wing
You could spend your whole life working for something
Just to have it taken away for nothing
People walk around pushing back their debts
Wearing paycheck like necklaces and bracelet
Talking about nothing, not thinking 'bout death
Every little heartbeat, every little breath
People walk a tight rope on a razors edge
Carrying their hurt and hatred and weapon
It could be a bomb, or a bullet or a pen
Or thought, or a word or a sentence

There ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they've always been and they intend to stay
I don't know why I say the things I say
But I say them anyway
Ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they've always been and they intend to stay
I don't know why I say the things I say
But I say them anyway

Prison walls still standing tall
Some things never change at all
Keep building prisons, gonna fill them all
Keep building bombs, gonna drop them all
Work your fingers bare to the bone
Break your back, make you sell your soul
Like a lung that's filled with coal
You don't even know your suffocating slow
The wind blows wild and I may move
The politicians lie and I am not a fool
You don't need no razor or a three piece suit
To argue the goddman truth
They air on my skin the world under my toes
Slavery stitched to the fabric of my clothes
Chaos and commotion wherever I go
But love yep I will try to follow here we go

There ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they've always been and they intend to stay
I can't explain why we live this way
We do it every day
Ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they've always been and they intend to stay
I don't know why I say the things I say
But I say them anyway

Add numerical prop so you can follow the plot

Thought I didn't wanna be alone
Til I met you and knew I was so wrong
It took me awhile but now I know why
With these words I testify
I don't give a fuck not one implied
I hope you cry yourself to sleep tonight
Gonna wake up and be oh so free
Pinch myself I cannot believe
Walk around and feel the breeze feel like me
While I count the ways I...
