Lyrics

Any Color

Written By: Jeremy Stolz

If I could see any color
The sound of your name would resonate BLUE
Until I collapse in pain
What were you thinking when I came through your window
Like the king of your bedroom
I washed away all the love inside of you
But you’ll fight to win
And I’m going under soon
My love it’s what they don’t want you to know
If I could see any color
The sound of your name would resonate GREEN
You could breathe the life back into me
But you’ll fight to win
And I’m going under soon
I left it up to you and now you’re gone
If I could see any color
The sound of your name would resonate BLACK
Until I collapse in pain
What were you thinking when I came through your window
Like the king of your bedroom
I washed away all the love inside of you

Morning Drive

Written By: Jeremy Stolz

Are you paradise
Or are you poison ivy
You burned my skin and let me down
On my morning drive
I had a revelation
It hurts to say it but I know
That you’re never coming home

I know you can’t get back what you never had
And I know it’s a waste of time
All I wanted
All I wanted
All I wanted was you

Are we so far gone
That we didn’t see this coming down
We used to laugh until we cried
On my morning drive
I had a revelation
It hurts to say it but I can’t
Hide my tears and laugh

I know you can’t get back what you never had
And I know it’s a waste of time
All I wanted
All I wanted
All I wanted was you

Are you paradise
Or are you poison ivy
You burned my skin and let me down
On my morning drive
I had a revelation
It hurts to say it but I can
Where’s my confidence

I know you can’t get back what you never had
And I know it’s a waste of time
All I wanted
All I wanted
All I wanted
All I wanted
All I wanted
All I wanted was you

Ready Or Not

Written By: Jeremy Stolz

This is trial by fire
It's a Salem dawn
These are carnal desires
Tie me up
Ready or not
Here it comes
I was waiting
Ready or not, here it comes
When the car broke down baby were still a mile away
You're all I've got
This miracle
And you better not cry - I'm still on your side
This is nobody's business
It's a setting sun
These are all your desires
Tied into one
Ready or not
Here it comes
I was waiting
Ready or not, here it comes
When the car broke down baby were still a mile away
You're all I've got
This miracle
And you better not cry - I'm still on your side
We were waiting
So scared of something else in here
It was never there
And we said our goodbyes

Born Ready

Written By: Jeremy Stolz

Who’s the one that makes you sing
Who’s the one that lets you bleed
Now that life seems so unfair
Who’s the one that is not there
The edge of reason seems so clear
You’re just a half mile from here
Crawl from the dirt
Crooked spine
Blood on my shirt
I miss the sunshine

There’s pain in life
But I was born ready
And I saw so much so soon
I’m the one you want
Every time you call
I will take you home

The girl named failure rears her head
We’re burning candles at both ends
Crawl from the dirt
Crooked spine
Blood on my shirt
I miss the sunshine

There’s pain in life
But I was born ready
And I saw so much so soon
I’m the one you want
Every time you call
I will take you home

Soon everyone will know
Not to let it show
Time is all we have tonight
We never disagree
We never let em see
Tell them everything’s all right
It’s too important now that I am

Feigning life
I was born ready
And I saw so much so soon
I’m the one you want
Every time you call

Soon everyone will know
Not to let it show
Time is all we have tonight
We never disagree
We never let em see
Tell them everything’s all right
There’s no escaping this one this time

There’s pain in life
But I was born ready
And I saw so much so soon
I’m the one you want
Every time you call
I’m the one you want
Every time you call
I’m the one you want
I’m the one you want

Important Things

Written By: Jeremy Stolz

Just hear me out this one last time
Everyone here knows right but you were wrong
I can’t afford another mistake like this
But I can round it down

See I’m prepared for what is to come
It was purely speculation through it
Always gets so hard when you are young
So you walk away

Have you important things to say
I’m listening
Have you important thing to say
To say

Should’ve seen the writing on your wall
Everyone here was scared but you have balls
And I’m taking another cue from you
I can disengage
See I’m prepared for all that you are
It was purely imagination
We were thrown right under the bus when you came through
So you disappear

Have you important things to say
I’m listening
Have you important thing to say
To say

I said it
I was afraid
Afraid that this will all come crashing down on us tonight
If we don’t do something

Home

Written By: Jeremy Stolz

Get me the fuck out of here
I’m throwing myself on this tragedy
That you’ve imported
It’s perfectly clear
The remedy is gone

You’re spending your days in the wasteland
You brought them up right
Just as long as you’re gone
Batter up hit em while the’re hurting
I’ll never wait for you

Now that I’m home
I’m alone at last
I’ve become
And though it seemed like a good possibility baby
You’re the one walking away

Get me the fuck out of here
I’m throwing heart off this balcony
That you’ve constructed
It’s perfectly clear
That I’ll never wait for you

Now that I’m home
I’m alone at last
I’ve become
And though it seemed like a good possibility baby
You’re the one walking away

Batter up son
The symptoms present
We walk heavy
To your beat up truck
We stare at the sun
And the sky so blue
