PlayGround

Written By: Amber Keffer and Misty Stump

Time goes by and still I think of you.
You crowd my mind with the memories of your flesh my thoughts are only for you. I breath I breath only in your presents.
Only in your presents!
When your gone I breath no more!
Breath no more, Breath no more!
My memories they fade away!
Away!
My mind is now an open field!
Open field open field!
Said what the darkness that keeps me company.. Oh God

Left for Tomorrow

Written By: Amber Keffer and Misty Stump

In dawns early light a dew that separates.
In dawns early light a take another drink.
In dawns early I begin to think.

I begin I begin
I begin to think my circles coming round again.
I begin to think about my world left for tomorrow.
I begin to think about my life I m verging on the brink.

Its not hard to imagine everything turns to gray.
Well its not hard to imagine the person I used to be fades away.
Innocent life I thought as a child but now as person full grown.

I begin I begin
I begin to think my circles coming round again.
I begin to think about my world left for tomorrow.
I begin to think about my life I m verging on the brink.

I try to be me but only my blind eyes can see.
Well I try to be me when my life has taken over.
I try to be me like the wind before a storm.

I begin I begin
I begin to think my circles coming round again.
I begin to think about my world left for tomorrow.
I begin to think about my life I m verging on the brink.

Loaded Gun

Written By: Amber Keffer and Misty Stump

Take this loaded gun and put it to my head.
Sometimes you make me wish that I was dead.
Pain is all around and sometimes you have to hit the ground to be found.

Cause I m dead inside....I m dead inside
I m dead inside from all you put me though.....I m through
Cause I m dead inside....I m dead inside
Oh.......darkness is a gift
Cause I m dead inside....I m dead inside

I am going to cut the strings off my arms
So you can't control my every move...you are not my master
Next time I see you baby it will be a disaster

Cause I m dead inside....I m dead inside
I m dead inside from all you put me though.....I m through
Cause I m dead inside....I m dead inside
Oh.......darkness is a gift
Cause I m dead inside....I m dead inside

Take this loaded gun and put it to your head
Well bang bang baby bitch Now your dead
Feel the pain of years your dis-regrets
Only you will not be found... when you hit the ground

Cause I m dead inside....I m dead inside
I m dead inside from all you put me though.....I m through
Cause I m dead inside....I m dead inside
Oh.......darkness is a gift
Cause I m dead inside....I m dead inside

Radio Beams

Written By: Misty Stump Amber Keffer

Fast I run, run real fast
Go I chase, chase I go so fast
Come I find it’s never going to last coming from the top.
Yeah, When I m all alone, with only the light from my phone.
I, I remember, all my friends are just a click away.
I m running safe today.

I m going to hit you hard / Cause I m coming in fast
There is no way / I’ll settle for less
In my digi heart I know for sure
Were playing at Digi Tour
Were rocking the tour!

So much happiness / I can’t be blind / To what’s happened on the inside!
This life is so / Let it stream
Dig the music / flowing though radio beams
Radio Beams / Radio Beams

I m going to hit you hard / Cause I m coming in fast
There is no way / I’ll settle for less
In my digi heart I know for sure
Were playing at Digi Tour
Were rocking the tour!
Were rocking the tour!

Skinflint man putting food on the table he’s a thirsty man who will drink from any label skinflint man.

American Dreaming
By: Misty Stump and Amber Keffer
When every other house on your block is selling everything from ass to rock I’m American dreaming
Eweh.. Homegrown militia’s, homegrown weed, I got homegrown babies on bathtub speed Oh Yeah!
I’m America sleeping!!!
Boarder War to their Civil War it’s the drugs and money that bring the violence!
Boarder War to their Civil War Mexico’s bodies stacked higher and higher yeah!
I’m America Sleeping… I’m America Dreaming
Where’s the daughters? Where’s the Sons? Dead in the desert… EWW dead by the gun!
Headless thousands their blood flows like tears from their mothers the blood of the innocent!
Boarder War to their Civil War it’s the drugs and money that bring the violence!
Boarder War to their Civil War Mexico’s bodies stacked higher and higher yeah!
I’m America Sleeping… I’m America Dreaming
When every other house on your block is selling everything from ass to rock I’m American dreaming
Eweh.. Homegrown militia’s, homegrown weed, I got homegrown babies on bathtub speed Oh Yeah!
I’m America sleeping!!!
Boarder War to their Civil War it’s the drugs and money that bring the violence!
Boarder War to their Civil War Mexico’s bodies stacked higher and higher yeah!
Are you America dreaming? We are the Americas!!
