Track Name: The Design
we'll lock our hearts to the grind
step steady out of line
wonder why until we find
it's all part of the design

we'll stow our fire away
hope to god it doesn't change
or bring us back to cloud 9
it's all part of the design

so smile for me if you want to dream

don't show your troubles in your face
let our pictures go to waste
we're fine, fine, fine
it's all part of the design

so we'll lock our hearts to the grind
step steady out of line
wonder why until we find
it's all part of the design

so smile for me if you want to dream

dare to dream and dare to fall

smile for me if you want to dream
Track Name: Heart Strings
I got your number dialled in
I got your number dialled in
will you meet me there, cause lovin' ain't fair
when you're pullin' on my heart strings

do you feel at home with a drink
keeping the warmth of a lover who's torn?
when I get a call, it's like a choir
gives us a lift just a little bit higher
and it's obvious that

I got your number dialled in
I got your number dialled in
will you meet me there, cause lovin' ain't fair
when you're pullin' on my heart strings

strum high, strum low, strum heavy
until you're in control
baby, hold on to my reason
cause I know that your rhyme will take
just a little more time
so while we're waiting

I got your number dialled in
I got your number dialled in
will you meet me there, cause lovin' ain't fair
when you're pullin' on my heart strings

heart strings aren't for anyone
gently strum to hear their song
heart strings aren't for anyone
who plays with fire
who plays with fire
Track Name: Cross the Lines
dropped into this maze
tried for years to escape
who made these rules anyway?

a sea of mad men counting
wrote books and climbed these mountains
the rest of us are shouting

we were born into their lies
we were drawn into their lines
what a shame, if we don't try
we were made to cross the lines

slept in a bed of salt
tried for years to be brave
while the sharks had their scheming way

the sea was mean and crowded
turned us into modern pirates
and with the tide it rises

we were born into their lies
we were drawn into their lines
what a shame, if we don't try
we were made to cross the lines
Track Name: When I was Young
I'll give you a dollar
for every word I had to swallow
you'll be rich and I'll be full
to the collar

they gave me a headache
and this feeling in my gut that I can't fake
still holding it in as a keepsake

when I was young
they told me not to mess around
they told me not to make a sound
kept me down, kept me down

as I tried to hold in all the shouldn'ts
they gave me a warning
another beautifully tainted warning

how am I supposed to feel the weight
if I can't feel the right things

like I was young
they told me not to mess around
they told me not to make a sound
kept me down, kept me down

please go easy lettin' me down
touch my cheek to frozen ground
please go easy lettin' me down

how am I supposed to feel the weight
if I can't feel the right things

like I was young
and too afraid to make a sound
but take a look at me right now
can't keep me down
Track Name: Get Your Guns
get your guns, it's time to go to war
isn't this what y'all been waiting for?
I don't know how you do it
it sure looks good on paper
there's a way to be honest
we'll figure it out later

get your guns, it's time to show them off
it won't hurt, it's just for making small talk
I don't know how you do it
clench your teeth, still lies spill out
through the cracks and the corners
I'd rather be in love

get your guns, it's time to go to war
isn't this what y'all been waiting for?
I don't know how you do it
make believe like that's enough
all the marks on the pages
I'd rather be in love
