Track Name: Tiger Tales
I was young and ambitious, with everything to prove to everyone.

I learned the hard way that anything worth fighting for is worth killing for. I always wanted to be a hero. Ive never been afraid to die, because I'm dying to feel alive.

I'll keep marching until my heels bleed, and sing songs of things bigger than me. You never know what you have until you have to go without. We fought like tigers, this fire you can't burn out.

So show them what you're made of if the chance is worth the take. This is more than honor and bravery, and there's more than your life at stake.

I'll keep marching until my heels bleed, and sing songs of things bigger than me. You never know what you have until you have to go without. We fought like tigers, this fire you can't burn out.

In fear they held position; there were still lives to defend. They guarded the hardened hearts of men. Taught to be tough as nails as the enemies advanced; they came home and built a life and a family with the same hands that fought for breath.

Don't forget who you are son. I'll keep marching 'til my heels bleed and sing songs of things bigger than me. You never know what you have until you have to go without. We fought like tigers, I know what I'm made of. I won't forget what I'm made of. I won't forget...
Track Name: Early Riser
I used to be an early riser, awake at the crack of dawn; but I don't sleep anymore because my head's always playing your song. I just wanted you to sing along.

I miss the autumn's bitter cold, and even more your hand to hold. I've been a waste of space keeping count of the days until you come back home but you never will.
I left my happiness somewhere deep down south, and it took all I had in the taxicab not to lose my shit, it'll be downhill. It's been downhill.

I used to be an early riser, awake at the crack of dawn; but I don't sleep anymore because my head's always playing your song. I just wanted you to sing along.

Will I finally be alright if I make it to 25? I'm patching up the holes in my chest that the previous owner left. I love the lack-luster all that's grey that was once gold. It was never better for my soul when all I had was rock and roll, and the peace you stole.
If you get nostalgic like me you know where I'll be, searching for a sense of balance and overall consistency.

I used to be an early riser, awake at the crack of dawn; but I don't sleep anymore because my head's always playing your song. I just wanted you to sing along.

I just wanted you to say you'll stay this time. I just wanted you...I wanna be an early riser. I wanna beat the rising sun, because over Pennsylvania the view is second to none. I just wanted you...I just wanted you to sing along...
Track Name: Sun Chaser
I chased my heart down south to find what I lost. I was moving further the more state lines we crossed, but the North Star brought me back home to you. Winter was shivering and shaking in my boots, digging my heels in deep to try and feel my roots but the ground was frozen over. The clouds hide the sunshine you are. Every turn of the wheel, and every hour of lost sleep...it's for you and me.

I could be patient and take it as it comes. That's not a virtue I learned, why walk when you can run? I can't tell if time is taking too long or if I don't have enough.
So let's hope my eyes don't lose their shine when I get home. I know if I had to I'd let this life go. With every turn of the wheel, and every hour of lost sleep...I'll be up watching signs pass keeping track of miles and feet.

You're the reason I came home from the war.

The road doesn't call as loud or scream as it did before. I miss the life with the clear skies. I miss the quiet and peace. I've been in the dark, chasing the sun you are, rising in the east. I can finally sleep.
Track Name: Atlas
It feels like it's gonna be another all-nighter again.
I'll finish my cigarette, I promise I'll come back to bed. When you wake, I'll tell you everything.

'cause I have demons I still fight,
but I won't sleep I'm not ready to call it a night.
If you can't love yourself, how could you ask that of someone else?
I'm constantly in need of my own medicine.

Leave my boots by the door, and my jacket on the rack.
My heart is with you. Leave the light on, I'll be back.
I'm still paralyzed by the thought the wounds I healed are opening up.
I'm burning at both ends.
I can't go on like this.

'cause I have demons I still fight,
but I won't sleep I'm not ready to call it a night.
If you can't love yourself, how could you ask that of someone else?
I'm constantly in need of my own medicine.

I don't just carry the world, I hold the stars in place. I've been trying to turn back time for too long.

'cause I have demons I still fight,
but I won't sleep I'm not ready to call it a night.
If you can't love yourself, how could you ask that of someone else?
I'm constantly in need of my own medicine.
Track Name: Yukon Cornelius
My old man taught me not to fall in line, and good things stand the test of time if they're built right.
I was raised where the winter ached my bones, and the sun reflected the undertones;
where the tradewinds pushed the rain and washed me clean.

Drink up men, we chase the sun at dawn.
These four walls still echo the songs my heroes sung, like ruins that crumbled when the colors were young.
Their courage fills my lungs.
So use it up and wear it out. We'll make it do or we'll do without. Yeah we'll do without.

I hope I'll be just as tough as those rough sons of guns in the photographs. I'll show the world I'm made of steel, I can feel it.

I just wanna be friends with the man in my reflection and shake his hand. Somebody's gotta tell me to be brave and it'll be okay.

Push forward my friend, I'm forever at your left. We are brothers, not by how we're born but by the blood we shed. Goodnight America, and all the ships at sea. I'm shipping off. Goodnight America, I finally found my peace with red eyes, white knuckles and blue sky. My love, I'm coming home.
