staceisaheyname Equal parts delicious hip-hop and soul baring synth. Just wanted to say thank you again. Favorite track: Everyone Left.

Hakeem Lapointe A really nice followup to the theming Soaring had. Lots of nice melodies to be heard in this cry-worthy melancholic burst of songs about separation and getting your life together. The guest appearance of Fat Tony on the last track is a really smooth addition that complement's Puzzle's work Favorite track: You Won't Like It.

Track Name: Sigh
i do a lot of things
i wouldn't normally do
to distract myself
from the thought of you
i don't have the space
inside of my mind
to lie, to fabricate
inner selfs on the line

i just want whatever scraps she doesn't want and has to spare
like a dog i'm at the table desperately i want you here
but now I'm looked at by her in a much different light
not the one she gives attention to
maybe another night

yeah
some would say I'm a bitch
it's been a little while now
but i still can't sit with it
who could blame
if you had this passion for a dame
I'm sure you'd feel the same

i just want whatever scraps she doesn't want and has to spare
like a dog i'm at the table desperately i want you here
but now I'm looked at by her in a much different light
not the one she gives attention to
maybe another night

take a walk
don't look back
no ones looking at you now
yeah thats a fact
Track Name: Everyone Left
it's like riding a mother fucking bike they say
just hit the ground running real fast okay?

careful getting close
keep a loving heart on its toes
was this all for nothing
what do i have to show
spent a lot of time
not an hour i regret though
the only thing i question
is how easy it was for her
to let go

it's like riding a mother fucking bike they say
just hit the ground running real fast okay?

night after night
i let emotions go
the kind you hold on to
no matter where you go
would've kept them forever
stuck like cement
if i would've heard back
wondering where they went
guess when you turn out the lights
you can't really see much anymore
guess when you're left in the dark
nobody's there to show you the door

guess when you turn out the lights
you can't really see much anymore
guess when you're left in the dark
nobody's there to show you the door
Track Name: Suck It Up
Taking a walk through the web she's online
Now my heart starts beating at 105
Hoping that you call and say hi
Although it hasn't happened yet
I've got to thinking in my mind
That she will
That she wants too
That i'm not the only left here tonight
But you probably are so suck it up
Suck it up

Suck it up

How may times did we say
That we would never stray away
I cannot say that i'll go easily
But when I do i'll keep my memories
Track Name: Chicken Shit
i was fifteen flippin years young
in the pit i saw a guy get ganged up on
they dragged the poor sap out the club
never saw him again
but always wanted to know
why the hell was he done like that
more than one guy on top of one guy all at once
just how some skinheads act
keep an eye out for a chicken shit
they travel in packs

easy as a concussion
is running your loud mouth over discussion
yeah i hear you oxygen sucking
movie watcher
self made main character
no director
might leave in a stretcher
and i'm willing to betcha
that I'm five miles far by
by the time you enter

keep an eye out for a chicken shit they travel in packs
Track Name: Tighten The Reins
lost hold of the reins
so i guess i'll just ride it out
wheres it gonna take me
guess i'll tell you when i find out
really about me trying not to call her everyday
drag myself outta bed
hands tight on the reins
x2

keep your hands on the reins
Track Name: You Won't Like It
hey nice to meet you
damn life moves fast
appear from the smoke
now i feel something
attraction is a strange beast
might do what it wants with you
or you can say

i can't tell you what I'm thinking
cause you won't like it

the other day i was driving
i saw a car smash into the median
but i was busy thinking
i wonder what she's doing
i wonder why i can't stop wondering why
now I'm screwing myself

i can't tell you what I'm thinking
cause you won't like it

hows an angel suppose to fly with stones on it's back
you might think he saw it coming
don't prefer to look back
hows a thinker supposed to think with a question on his mind
so many try to race time
they never hit the finish line
i can't believe ya
if you don't give me a reason
and i won't take you anywhere
if your morals are changing seasons
Track Name: I Still Don't Know Where Everything Went
picked up the life you had
and you molded it to the perfect shape
its a shame that i wasn't in the sculpture
but I'm happy for you
see you getting older
ya know I'm trying to do the same thing
nowadays I'm doing pretty okay
who know's if you'll hear this one
but everyone in a moon i start to think

maybe you picked someone else
maybe it was all about yourself
maybe it was all a secret
because suddenly you started feeling decent

life takes you through rides
some don't matter
some really matter though
so fucking pay attention
if you're getting something handed to you
open up your eyes
and not just the eyes you pretend to understand with
x2


maybe you picked someone else
maybe it was all about yourself
maybe it was all a secret
because suddenly you started feeling decent
Track Name: All The Best ft. Fat Tony
i don't really like to ask for a hand
i remember when she used to ask for mine
nowadays she cant even find the time
to drop me a line
drop me a line
hey ya know, it's okay
i realize that i can't live this way
all the best to her and them
i'll always be here to extend my hand

i'll always be here to extend my hand

FAT TONY:
yeah these things take time
heard I'm on your mind
yeah you're on my mind to
heard it through the grapevine
you don't wanna waste time
hurry i don't waste none too
maybe if we take time
talk it out away from everyone
we know we'll be cool
anything you need i'll be the one you could dial
hope i can dial you too
don't know what to do when you're here
used to act a fool
now i play it cool when I'm ready for you
started as a friendship
we don't gotta end it
you and me got someone new
ain't looking to go backwards
glad we aint at war
i ain't gonna act up
and if we on the same page
we can keep it patched up
