Lyrics

Calling You

Written By: Jonah, Shapiro

CALLING YOU

EVERY TIME I CALL YOU NO ONE'S EVER AT HOME
I'VE ONLY GOT A MINUTE TILL THEY HANG UP THE PHONE
MAYBE THERE'S A REASON YOU DON'T HEAR WHAT I SAY
YOU NEVER REALLY LISTENED ANYWAY WAY WAY WAY

TRY TO UNDERSTAND I KNOW IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE
THE ONLY THING I'M GUILTY OF IS TRYING TO BE ME
RUNNING OUT OF MONEY I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
I SPENT MY LAST PENNY CALLING YOU YOU YOU

CHORUS
WHAT IS FOR REAL
SAY WHAT WHAT WHAT
WHAT DO I FEEL
WHEN MY HANDS ARE TIED AND MY LIPS ARE SEALED

YOU PUSH ME AWAY
I SAID HEY HEY HEY
NOW I'M ALONE
WILL I FIND A LIFE TO CALL MY OWN

I KNOW YOU'VE BEEN AVOIDING ME AND I DON'T KNOW WHY
I NEVER GAVE YOU REASON TO BELIEVE THAT I LIED
NOTHING LASTS FOREVER YOU'RE THE ONE WHO SHOULD KNOW
SO GIVE ME BACK MY THINGS
AND LET ME GO GO GO GO

DOES IT REALLY MATTER IF I'M TRYING TO BE
EVERYTHING YOU EVER NEEDED, NOTHING BUT ME
LIVING OUT MY SENTENCE AND I'M PAYING MY DUES
STARTING WITH THIS MESSAGE AND A CALL TO YOU

CHORUS

NO ONE TO BLAME
YOU PUSH ME AWAY

Viper Room

Written By: Jonah

VIPER ROOM

GOT A FOUR MAN WRECKING CREW
ON THE STAGE WE DISPLAY A NEW ROCK ATTITUDE
WE MADE A NAME AT THE VIPER ROOM

IN THE SCENE THAT WAS BUILT FOR ME
LIKE A DREAM I LOST TOUCH WITH REALITY
I NEARLY LOST MY SANITY
AND ALL MY DREAMS WERE COMING TRUE

EYES ARE WATCHING YOU
WHAT YOU GONNA DO
THE NIGHT THAT SEALED MY DOOM
ONE NIGHT AT THE VIPER ROOM

FROM THE STREET YOU CAN HEAR THE SOUND
FEEL THE BASS HIT YOUR FACE
SO LOUD IT KNOCKS YOU DOWN
IT BREAKS THE WALLS AND IT SHAKES THE GROUND

TAKE A RIDE ON THE WILD SIDE
RAISE A FIST AND ENLIST IN THIS OUR BATTLE CRY
IT'S ROCK N' ROLL WE WON'T LET IT DIE
'CAUSE WE'VE GOT SOMETHING HERE TO PROVE

CHORUS

OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE
THIS PLACE DESTROYING ME
HOW DID IT GET TO THIS
I KNOW YOU WANTED TO FLY
SO HIGH...

MY EYES ARE WATCHING YOU
WHAT YOU GONNA DO
THE NIGHT THAT SEALED MY DOOM
I'M GONNA TAKE YOU TO THE VIPER ROOM

ONE NIGHT AT THE VIPER ROOM

Stand Up

Written By: Jonah, Crowner, Shapiro

MY DEVOTION
A QUESTION FOR NO ONE BUT ME
MIND YOUR BUSINESS DON'T MIND ME

WHAT'S THE REASON
A CHANGE IN THE SEASON AND TIDE
WHAT'S THE AIM OF YOUR DESIGN

SO YOU'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR SOMEONE TO PLEASE
MAKING UP STORIES THAT NO ONE BELIEVES
GIVE ME A REASON AND SPEAK YOUR MIND
KNOWING THAT I STAND UP FOR WHAT'S MIND

CHORUS
STAND UP. STAND DOWN
STANDING FOR WHAT I BELIEVE IN
STAND UP. STAND DOWN
STANDING WITH BOTH OF MY FEET
ON THE GROUND

INDECISION
I'M WAITING ON YOU TO DECIDE
DRAW THE LINE AND CHOOSE YOUR SIDE

FACE THE MUSIC
AND SLEEP IN THE BED THAT YOU MADE
ON YOUR OWN I'VE BEEN BETRAYED

STAND UP. STAND DOWN
STANDING FOR WHAT I BELIEVE IN
STAND UP. STAND DOWN
YOU CAN'T TAKE THAT FROM ME
STAND UP. STAND DOWN
STARE AT THE FACE OF REASON
STAND UP. STAND DOWN
STANDING WITH BOTH OF MY FEET ON THE GROUND

I'M ALONE IN DEFENDING MY NAME
AND THE PRESSURE IS KILLING ME
WHERE WERE YOU WHEN I NEEDED YOU BY MY SIDE
I'VE BEEN WONDERING

CHORUS
