Track Name: Broken Faith
LYRICS:

BROKEN FAITH by Jesse Macht

VERSE
CLEAR OF THESE ROPES, FREE FROM THESE CHAINS
BEEN TIRED OF BRICK AND MORTAR, TIRED OF PULLING ALL OF THIS WEIGHT
YOU’VE LIFTED THE SPELL, AND AS FAR AS I CAN TELL,
BEEN LOOKING FOR FORGIVENESS BUT IT’S NO LONGER MY BUSINESS
TO SIT HERE AND WAIT

PRE
ANYTHING YOU WANNA ASK
NOWS THE TIME DON’T LET IT PASS
YES IT’S TRUE YOU LED ME ASTRAY
BUT YOU STILL GOT AWAY WITH MISTAKES

CHORUS
YOU’VE FINALLY BROKEN MY FAITH

VERSE 2
THE STING OF MY VEIN, COURSING WITH PAIN
I KNEW YOUD MEET A MAN IN A CITY THAT YOU PLANNED YOUR ESCAPE
IT WAS ONLY A WEEK AGO, YOU SLEPT IN MY BED AND THOUGH
YOUR PROMISES OVERFLOWED I COULD TELL ON THE TELEPHONE YOU CHANGED

PRE 2
EVERYTHING YOU GOTTA MASK
TRICK OR TREAT YOUR PLAYING THE PAST
YOU DON’T GO DOWN AS SWEET AS YOU THINK
ONE DAY THEY’LL CATCH UP WITH YOU YOU FAKER.

BRIDGE
I SHOULDA KNOWN FROM THE START YOU HAD A HISTORY
OF HURTING THE HEARTS OF MEN
I DIDN’T THINK YOU WERE CAPABLE OF RIPPING UP MY BODY
CAUSE OF HOW WELL YOU USED IT.
Track Name: Suitcase Heart
Suitcase Heart:

We wanna find the fire, but when it comes its too hot to hold
We wanna chase the silver, cause its too hard to carry gold
We wanna make mistakes, we wanna heart that won't break
We wanna feel the rhythm, but it comes and goes it comes and goes

Time slowly puts holes in your sweater
Loosens the threads the hold it together.

Chorus:
When it just falls apart
And its spilling over
It's the end, or just the start
So start me over
Unpack your suitcase heart
When the sunlight hits your toes
Don't be afraid to go. 

We wanna keep on moving, keep on dancing moving our feet
We wanna paint a picture, photographs the blind can see
We wanna make mistakes, we want hearts that won’t break
We wanna race the tide as it comes and goes it comes and goes. 
Track Name: How We Break It
HOW WE BREAK IT
By Jesse Macht and Audra Mae


VS
LOVE THAT ONCE WAS, EATING AT US
WHAT’S ENOUGH, WHAT’S THE FINAL BLOW
PLAYING THIS GAME, WE BOTH LOSE ALL THE SAME
YOU WIND ME UP, JUST TO WATCH ME GO
YOU LIGHT IT UP, JUST TO WATCH IT EXPLODE

PRE
SCREAMING IN A PARKING LOT, AND EVERYBODY’S GOTTA WATCH
BUT HOW THE HELL DID WE END UP HERE

CHORUS
CAUSE I DON’T WANNA BE THE REASON WHY
AND YOU DON’T WANNA BE THE ONE TO CRY
NEITHER ONE OF US CAN LIVE THIS LIE
IT WAS EASY WHEN WE MADE SENSE
BUT I GUESS, THIS IS HOW WE BREAK IT

VS
FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE, YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE RIGHT
GIVE IT UP EVERYBODY KNOWS
YOU LIGHT IT UP JUST TO WATCH IT EXPLODE

BRIDGE
WE COULD HAVE SAVED IT ALL, BUT YOU INSIST ON
Track Name: Bound To Be Exposed
Bound to be Exposed
by Jesse Macht

verse 1
I push myself a little bit harder
I kick my feet to stay above water
swallow my pride and wait that much longer for it
cool my hands in the low green grass
feel the wind with every step
hold my head up high stay grateful for it.

pre
it's trying every ounce of my patience
answers just breed more questions
maybe these fools were right all along

chorus
i won't let these ties hold me any longer
i'm too strong to give up this fight
no chain no rope can bind my arrow
i'm the only one holding back my light
and it's bound to be exposed

verse 2
hating myself for my expectations
dragging her in cause i'm amputated
these phantom pains, they still sting at night.
Vladimir where we going
an age old story, but now i know
its ok stuck here underneath this tree

bridge
maybe there's no hope, and dreams of rainbows and gold
there’s treasures in the seeds
so it’s time i let them free.
Track Name: One More Call
ONE MORE CALL

VERSE
CHASING DOWN A DREAM, EVERY CORNER OF THE CITY SKYLINE
BEAMS THAT SPILL OUT LIGHT
BREAKING THROUGH THE DARKNESS AND BRIGHTEN UP THE NIGHT – FALL

PRE
AND I STILL FIND MYSELF, CAUGHT UP, HOPING FOR ONE MORE CALL


CHORUS
ONE MORE CALL SHOULD MAKE YOU LOVE ME
ONE MORE MESSAGE COULD TURN YOU RIGHT
ONE MORE WAY TO CHANGE THE ANSWERS
AND FIGHT FOR ONE MORE NIGHT
ONE MORE PICTURE ONE MORE SONG
ONE MORE JOKE THAT PROVES YOU WRONG
ONE MORE MEMORY MIGHT CHANGE YOUR MIND
I’M RUNNING OUT OF TIME

VERSE 2
CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY, THE WORDS YOU USE JUST HELP YOU SOUND NAÏVE
I WANNA PULL, THE TEETH OUT OF THIS MONSTER THAT WE CALL

PRE
WHILE, I STILL FIND MYSELF, CAUGHT UP, HOPING FOR ONE MORE CALL

BRIDGE
IF IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO LOVE ME, I WON’T MAKE YOU LIVE A LIE
FORCE YOU FACE TO FACE WITH REASON, BUT IF YOU PUSH ME TO THE RIGHT
YOU WILL PROVE THAT YOU’RE NOT WORTHY, OF THIS HOPE I BUILD INSIDE
IT COMES OUT OF ME, NO MATTER HOW, I PUSH IT DOWN SOMETIMES.
Track Name: It's Me Tonight
ANOTHER DAY SOMEWHERE
ANOTHER NIGHT DRAWS NEAR
GIVE UP WHAT YOU THINK YOU KNOW
YOU'RE NEVER REALLY THAT ALONE
IN THE END

TOUCHING FINGERTIPS
HOLDING HANDS WITH THE ONE YOU'RE WITH
WE'VE ONLY GOT RIGHT NOW
BEFORE THE STORM CAN BRING US DOWN
IN THE END

ALL THE STARS IN THE SKY
LOOK THE SAME TO THE NAKED EYE
WHO NEEDS TO GO THE SPEED OF THE LIGHT
IF WE'RE JUST RACING TO THE END

ALL THESE THOUGHTS FLASH BY
POLAROIDS TURNING BACK TO WHITE
I'M NOT AFRAID TO SHOOT AND MISS
WE'VE GOT MORE THAN O NE SHOT AT THIS IN THE END

JUPITER WASN'T MADE FOR RAIN
AND I COULD BE THE MAN ON THE MOON
OR JUST
A MAN WITH NO NAME
AND EVERYBODY FEELS JUST A LITTLE INSANE
SOMETIMES
AND ITS ME TONIGHT
Track Name: Nothing Wrong With A Little Rain
NOTHING WRONG WITH A LITTLE RAIN
Chorus
There’s nothing wrong with a little rain
We could use it now 
There’s nothing wrong with a little rain
Hear the thunder pound

Vs 1
We’ve had the sun, for more than a few days
We could use a change.
I can see the wind is blowing, ya that storm it’s sure coming on
And I can’t wait to run through the streets by myself.

Bridge
Skies like these force me to remember
how lucky I am
Let the memories linger on
And the sadness wash away.

Vs2
Your kiss is a little sweeter,
and aren’t you the perfect creature
smiling back,
red lips against a grey sky.
Its all right, ya you’re all right.
Track Name: Looking For A Way Out
LOOKING FOR A WAY OUT

Key of C

VERSE

Haven't slept for days, I've been leaking out the heartache

There's something swimming in the wine I saw you tremble when I drank

PRE-CHORUS

Nothing I can do to change this side of you when you think you're up against the wall

It's the burning that you get when you stack up your regrets and you feel so damn small

CHORUS

You're always looking for a way out, you've been laying all your cards down

You've been breaking all the rules, folding with a full house

I've been looking for a way in, that's why you got me gambling

I ain't ever gonna beg if your'e looking for way out

VERSE
Taking in the coast it's a better jail then most
we are senseless runaways, cause we ended up at home

Bridge:
Is there something I can say, to strike against the blade
cut it off or baby let me go.
Cause I’m done crossing over lines, i’ve paid the warden time
so maybe he could cure my soul
Track Name: There's Always Two
There's always two, or I find myself alone.
Fire and rain, earthquakes and hurricanes
Or clear sailing and bound for the coast
I'm in heaven or hell, hungover or well
with no sight of silver, but a wealth of coal

There's always two, the fates have had their way with me.
The second I give, I get two minutes
The moment I need, I'll never get back
Not looking for a friend, but friends come visit
Or I drift a barren sea

There's always two, I find my little hands in yours.
I've got my mom I'm glad, but I never met my grandad,
My father's breathing, but my brother left home
Feast or famine, when I think I have it all figured out,
Or more than most.

There's always two.
