Don’t want your money Just want your soul Take it easy Go real slow Don’t want your feeling Just want your gold Big excuses Make it harder to sow Take it down the line Take it on the side You know the road to nowhere Is paved with good intention Taken by the sign Make it outta line You know the road to nowhere Is paved with good intentions Don’t want your future Just want your soul Don’t ask for nothing That can’t be sold Maybe someday When we get old We’ll be together Looking for that pot of gold Come on and spark some hope And baby grind my gear And be my harmony And match my fears Hold on to distance Life thru a screen Is lonelier than it seems

Wild times in the middle of June You can run but it won’t stick like glue It’s a fee that will rack up real soon Team no sleep all day As I see it now it’s all gone You can find but you won’t get around Hit me back it’s not worth it to frown Team no sleep all day It could be O.K. Good reviews? What should we say? Things don’t matter when they appear that way Looking good out ready to slay It will be O.K. As I see it now it’s all gone You can find but you won’t get around Hit me back it’s not worth it to frown Team no sleep all day It could be O.K. Can’t believe that it’s happened to see A telling sign that you’re laughing at me Either way we just got to be free Team no sleep all day

If you see me and just look away I know that you got something to say But you don’t Gotta shade of a ghost And I feel good just roaming around Your hands on me really take me off the ground That’s how we’re meant to be Way to be, it’s the way to be Yeah you love me and it’s open my eyes Everyday is a whole brand new surprise That’s how we’re meant to be From a to z, from a to z If you see me and just look away I know that you got something to say And you will Yes, you’re everything thing to me I can’t believe that its happened to me The ghost is real It’s the way that I feel The ghost is real It’s the way that I feel

Got luck but you don’t know the score You feel love but you can’t knock down the door I got some but you gotta try hard That’s not the only way...the only way It’s not the first or second When you say you’re just looking around Feeling hopped up and you don’t know how I seen God, it’s a friendly face Look at how strong boy, evil two-faced With a little to say, thrown it away Hot love in the town, look what you found A whole lotta messin’ around Hot love running away, what did you say? Come on and let it down Just wait ‘till the law hits your jaw It may take some time for that kinda of straw To break the back of a million dollar crew That’s just sitting there with nothing more to do Just watching the score hit new lows When you’re broke like a gumdrops And you’re no longer so hot In those floppy tops and sloppy hats Look at how low boy you got Making deals two shot Making deals that’ll blow you, blow you away

Feel good, deep inside Feel good worldwide Feel good to be alive Triggered weeknd you happy now? There’s more than meets the eye Triggered weeknd you happy now? It’s a sound that cannot thrive Triggered weeknd you happy now? When you’re on your own Triggered weeknd you happy now? With the cars that you own But I feel good, deep inside Feel good worldwide Feel good to be alive Triggered weeknd you happy now? Growing up is hard Triggered weeknd you happy now? Shining lights beyond Triggered weeknd you happy now? Alaska’s on the frame Triggered weeknd you happy now? Only dankest memes remain And who knows where this will take us It’s a road never traveled before Corrupting musical minds

Hold me close your eyes...do you feel the same? Tightly squeeze the pain up to forty hours You are right again, the never ending tale Wonders in your brain, neurotropic gains My days constant change in a true disguise Springing thru the air...all the savage lies But you are right again, the never ending fate Of wonders in your brain Neurotropic, neurotropic Neurotropic gains It’s part of it sure when you’re asking for more Take it sounds galore, whistling out of adore But guess what it’s mine It is mine...It’s mine Hold me close your eyes...do you feel the same? Tightly squeeze the pain up to forty hours You are right again the never ending tale Wonders in your brain Neurotropic, neurotropic Neurotropic gains You were right again between the eye You were right again between the eyes You were right again between the eyes

Heard a sound to believe Bled loud and clean ‘till it burned away Struck a chord right through me Ripping at my heart, echoing in me I really wanna find out I really wanna find out Marquee 1970s Pogo with your bubblegum I think you’re gonna bite your tongue Roxy, what you do to me Another time far away Wish I was a plane I’d crash right into you Borrowed time in a club In this smokey room with nothing left to lose I really wanna find out I really wanna find out Marquee 1970s Black Swan, Boardwalk Roundhouse, 100 Club Marquee 1970’s Oh, all this mindless beauty And all the time we share in screams I know it’s all for nothing But you left your ghost in me You left your ghost in me

Send a note…wait for response Direct attack without a source Group of time, group of friends What a show ‘till the end Without warning I break the fall Know what’s wrong, but not for long We can go on helplessly It can free Over a commodity Equals time to breathe Inviting me up the stairs Who knows what we’ll encounter there It’s a Rolls without the Royce You still got nothing, nothing to hold At the night, nothing is known It’s all new and right up in cue It can go on endlessly It can free Over a commodity Equals time to breathe It can go on endlessly Once you see Traffic flowing into the march Clear blue sky seeking animal starch It can go on helplessly It can free Over a commodity Equals time to breathe

I heard that chance always favors a prepared mind Well I’m straight out of luck ‘Cause I’m unprepared all the time I’ve got tons to do and loads on my mind Knowing you could be nice But I’m a total wreck so maybe next time I swear these backlit lights keep on Draining my brain My thoughts are fading to grey Organic graffiti corroding away I’ve got tons to do and loads on my mind Knowing you could be nice But I’m a total wreck so maybe next time You say to meet you half way but I Haven’t been there before Let’s pretend to quickly progress And watch everything in reverse I’ve got tons to do and loads on my mind Knowing you could be nice But I’m a total wreck so maybe next time Meet me meet me up here where My heads in the clouds Meet me meet me up here Where my heads in the clouds

The best of time amongst the wicked Heading thru the end without a score Sooner or later it comes predictive Patience is key, don’t ask for more Robbed at night without a sound Block the fight without a round Round round It’s words like these that get acquitted Blasting out the letters in record speeds Desperate days roll out convicted In a serious battle of control leads Robbed at night without a sound Block the fight without a round, round round Round, round round In a move that counters all the gifted Ones who omit the plea What comes and goes around the world is fitted To the reality you choose to see Block the fight Without a round, round, round

When you gotta strong mind of love and care You could see the sunshine When the losers are there When you strike a feeling That comes and goes It don’t matter who comes in your life You’ll know… With an optimized heart You’ll never be apart Of those you love, really love And with the alright start Of another part That’ll grow and grow and grow When you got a love that is strong ‘nuff to bare Stay away from magic, oh if you dare Sing along with fixtures It’s hard to tell But even thru the hard times It’s obvious you’ll fare well
