Lyrics

1. Candles (I'm F* Up)

Written by Kris Dagen, Eduardo Urbaez, and Mark Richardson


I felt it coming
You’re my shelter from it
Know the deal when I dealt with something, I love it
Need a break from real world fake love
You are my sanctum can hide can’t run
Contemplate some then I take drugs
Be my getaway my escape from
What comes around still goes around
I pick you up and you hold me down, down, down


You got me feeling so fine, yeah
I want to do this all night
But this is too real


Touch me let the candles set the mood
I’m fucked up, I’m fucked up
Clothes off I need you right now
I’m fucked up, I’m fucked up
Love me there’s nobody else but you
I’m fucked up, I’m fucked up
Fuck me, you’re body gets me through
I’m fucked up, I’m fucked up


Long strolls through my grief
You’re my stronghold when I’m weak, yeah
There was no one else you would be my helper
You would be my shell I would be your shelter
Shelter, shelter, shelter, shelter


You got me feeling so fine
I want to do this all night, but this is too real


Show me patience each conversation
I know I’m safe every time I’m near you
Life’s a dark mirror help me see it clearer

Too real, yeah


Touch me let the candles set the mood
I’m fucked up, I’m fucked up
Clothes off I need you right now
I’m fucked up, I’m fucked up
Love me there’s nobody else but you
I’m fucked up, I’m fucked up
Fuck me, you’re body gets me through
I’m fucked up, I’m fucked up


You got me feeling so fine
I want to do this all night
But this is too real

2. Put Me In My Zone

Written by Kris Dagen
 

I'm way too advanced to be basic I just took a Xanax and I chased it
With grams of brand new strand because I got to go ham I be caking
I pregamed in my whip on the way here
Just flew to cloud ten off two drinks
Yeah I came here to binge fuck what you think
You better mind your biz don't do me
Just came to relax or pretend to
I got a dame on my lap what she into?
If you DTF I’ll relieve your stress when I put a little captain in you ha
Drink until everything’s numb
Can’t feel my face or my tongue
I’m on a roll
They like are you OK or done
I’m good in fact I’ve just begun
I’m in my zone


You know I been takin shots, put me in my zone
I throw them back until I drop, put me in my zone
Pour me a glass of Cîroc, put me in my zone
This is a major event my posse came in here lit (I'm zoning I'm zoning)
All of my homies got work I got my whole city turnt (I'm in my zone)
I keep on slamming these drinks don't give a damn what you think (I'm zoning I'm zoning)
Wake up hung over at 2 like “hey what the hell did we do” (I zoned out)


Too prideful to stop like a kid I need gin for my guys on the rocks
I’m supplying the block with heat
You boys can’t compete I been buying a lot
Wait, why does the room keep on spinning?
I think that I been abusing my limits
Well I guess that’s what you do when you living
No I do not care if I’m viewed as a menace
I’m a pro little bro you a novice
I’m a dance with your girl while you vomit
I only ball like this because I got it
Two things on my mind turn up make profit
Say you bossed up but that’s not a fact
Good girls in the front all the thots in back
Blowing big clouds when I pop the cap
I’m going 12 rounds like a boxing match
All you haters phony don’t love me now
Party favors only no party fouls
Bitches turn me on that would turn me down
If I had no loud and I couldn’t rock the crowd
Drink until everything fades
Block out the world with my shades
It’s getting blurry
They like is you OK my dude?
Yeah homie just give me some room
 

I’m in my zone

You know I been takin shots, put me in my zone
I throw them back until I drop, put me in my zone
Pour me a glass of Cîroc, put me in my zone
This is a major event my posse came in here lit (I'm zoning I'm zoning)
All of my homies got work I got my whole city turnt (I'm in my zone)
I keep on slamming these drinks don't give a damn what you think (I'm zoning I'm zoning)
Wake up hung over at 2 like “hey what the hell did we do” (I zoned out)


I’m mixing beer wine and liquor got bud light and miller and rum as a kicker (run it!)
I swear it gets me there quicker the bartender’s fine I might tip her (tip her tip her)
I’m inebriated I can’t even fake it
Can’t you see we faded I don’t need to say it
Drinking until my cup is overflowing everybody fucking know it
I be showing out like I cannot control it
I get what I want because I chase it
Everybody bluff they complacent
All you dudes basic
Working on my craft finding greatness
Or in the club white girl wasted
You ain’t ever partied with my team before
We get drunk hit blunts drink some more
We sip this sip that chug some brews
We drink wine feel fine what we came to do
All I want to do is chill and unwind
Don’t be tripping acting like it’s a crime
Why don’t you live your life I’m living mine
Everybody got to turn up sometime
Drink like there’s no consequence
Drink like there’s no common sense
Drink like a fish
They like how you feeling my bro
I’m good can you get me one more?
I’m in my zone


You know I been takin shots, put me in my zone
I throw them back until I drop, put me in my zone
Pour me a glass of Cîroc, put me in my zone
This is a major event my posse came in here lit (I'm zoning I'm zoning)
All of my homies got work I got my whole city turnt (I'm in my zone)
I keep on slamming these drinks don't give a damn what you think (I'm zoning I'm zoning)
Wake up hung over at 2 like “hey what the hell did we do” (I zoned out)

3. I Want It All

Written by Kris Dagen & Eduardo Urbaez

  

I gave you proof we should wait for time
The same excuse new stage in life
My love was thin you let me out
I wasn’t then I’m ready now


I want all of your love
I ain’t never plan different
I just had to hold back
Because it’s a big transition
Close my eyes for a brief escape
Is it love or a leap of faith?
Either way I’m walking out of my comfort zone


Now I want it all, I want it all right now
I want it all, I want it all right now
I want it all I want it all right now
I want it all, I want it all right now


I want it all, give it
No time for other women
I’ll make you mine
I’ll throw in all of my chips
Some people call it a risk
Maybe they’re right
Show me the path, now
No looking back I don’t want to live in the past
I’m ready to fall forward you know it baby I’m all yours 


I heard she back in my town
I can’t be messing around
She hit me up on my phone
I better leave it alone but I want her back
I get a text, call up my ex
We get undressed and see what comes next
I’m doing you wrong
Should I stay or should I move along
Where do I belong?


Now I want it all, I want it all right now
I want it all, I want it all right now
I want it all I want it all right now
I want it all, I want it all right now


What does it mean?
Why do I still want to leave?
When your love is all that I need
I knew it, I blew it
I don’t know who I need the most
I wish that I could have both
What do I do?
I bought a ring for you too
I’m seeing this through
Yeah, just me and you


Now I want it all, I want it all right now
I want it all, I want it all right now
I want it all I want it all right now
I want it all, I want it all right now


I gave you proof we should wait for time
The same excuse new stage in life
My love was thin you let me out
I wasn’t then I’m ready now

4. Eclipse

Written by Kris Dagen & Eduardo Urbaez


(Every night I see the moon it reminds me of you) x3

Every night I see the moon, every night


The only one I relate to

When I’m in your world I feel thankful        

I’m patient you’re so vivacious

You take control I embrace it 

Get the goosebumps when you hug me                                                       

Haters throw shade but it’s not true             

You know your way, you know your way

But when you feel lost girl I got you

Slow dance at a moonlit event                                                                      

Hold tight I ain’t never losing my grip

I like how you moving your hips

You and me we could be a lunar eclipse

       

(Every night I see the moon it reminds me of you) x3

Every night I see the moon, every night


Bound by your touch you complete me

I yearn for your kiss every evening

I’m falling too, it’s all for you

Life’s hard but with you I take it easy

I want to be all that you need       

Stand by your side until you’re falling for me

So in love that it’s hard to describe

The spark in your eyes and the stars have aligned


(Every night I see the moon it reminds me of you)  x3

Every night I see the moon, every night

(Every night I see the moon it reminds me of you)  x3

Every night I see the moon, every night


Speak from my heart you listen

So kind and smart you’re different

True love and care in your eyes

You took me there at first sight

5. Temptations

Written by Kris Dagen, Ronnie Avalos, and Mark Richardson

  

I can’t get the taste of you
I can’t get the sound of you
I can’t get the thought of you


Always want what I can’t have
I guess that’s how we’re programmed
I’ve been leading my own path
But sometimes I don’t know man
I don’t live by my values
But I know that I can more
I don’t think I know how to
What the hell do I stand for?


Most dudes put in my position want to have it all it’s a contradiction
No restraint no it’s not addiction can’t turn it down because I ain’t got the wisdom
This is all so new to me and it’s dangerous if you don’t know the ropes
Go to church catch the holy ghost when it’s nighttime people overdose

The pros and cons of freedom, I got
My demons hungry feed them, why not
Lust for my temptations, I want
A rush to kill the craving, come on
Listen kid, where’s your morals and discipline?
Momma raised you different then
but I’m no angel I just pretend, just pretend


Temptations, temptations, ooh temptations te-te-te temptations yah


All I can hear is the peer pressure  
That can’t be changed with a mere lecture
You can’t replace what time’s taken
If money’s evil then why chase it?
Don’t know when to say I’m done
Won’t be scared when my time comes
I like fun because where I’m from they live fast then die young

Got the real deal but I still feel like going after these bitches
Can’t believe that I’ve done that when I come back to my senses
Take a trip to the dark side it’s a good time with a bad flavor
When you’re falling on hard times I’ll pick you up but you’ll crash later

I can’t stave the cravings, but why?
They keep on persuading inside  
Say yes no or maybe, decide
Pick your poison now
My ethics reflected
Desire directed  
I work through my virtues
I’m sorry I hurt you


Temptations, temptations, ooh temptations te-te temptations yah


Life’s a ride and I’m strapped in
I remember way back then
I ain’t have much and that’s when I start justifying my actions
I was told go and get paper
Give in now and repent later
I was raised to be self centered
Stuck consuming these health killers

I got the liquor pouring too
I am a sinner so are you  
I never judge
Who am I to say I’m above you or mine
I fight with my urges
The righteous, the serpent
I try it’s not working
You’re mad but I deserve it


Temptations, temptations, ooh temptations te-te-te temptations yeah


Can’t get the taste of me out
Can’t get the sound of me out
Can’t get that thought of me out
Can’t get that part of me out
Can you hear me talking check the silence homie
It’s the piece you want I got the violence on me
Put a hold on your dreams because ??? is on me
The whole world is watching, eyes is on me
You can sell your soul to god, oh my god
If it’s the house you want there’s a risk in that
You got to take it all fuck giving back
The green get greener that’s a given fact
You either in or out there ain’t no missing that
If your feeling strong make sure your chin is strapped
Keep your business quiet and you’re emotions wrapped

6. Sleep Walker

Written by Kris Dagen & Eduardo Urbaez

  

Sleepwalk, sleepwalk, sleepwalk, sleepwalk


I can’t face reality

Looks like I’m fine but I’m not myself
Dazed and afraid to say I need help
Hard to explain what’s it’s like inside
Dark in my brain trying fight this vibe

My mind’s out of touch with the real world
I drift up and down on a path unknown  
You left me I see how you feel girl
I need your support but I’m all alone 

Don’t leave me breaking
I’m going crazy   
Please come and save I’m going crazy
I’m shaking hold me steady
I’m falling catch me baby


I’m a sleepwalker, sleepwalker
I’m a sleepwalker I’m a sleepwalker
I’m a sleepwalker, sleepwalker
I’m a sleepwalker
I can’t face reality
I can’t face reality


You’re the other half of me

I’m hollow
No purpose here
All I know is things aren’t clear
Won’t swallow the fact you’re gone
Time disengaged me from this realm

I don’t respond to my friends
I write a text but don’t send
Sometimes I question why live
Then feel your breath on my skin
This perspective ain’t right
I’m disconnected no lights
Just send one message I might
Jump up and come back to life 


I’m a sleepwalker, sleepwalker
I’m a sleepwalker I’m a sleepwalker
I’m a sleepwalker, sleepwalker
I’m a sleepwalker
You’re the other half of me
(I can’t face reality, I can’t face reality, I can’t face reality, you’re the other half of me) X3

7. Unspoken

Written by Kris Dagen


I’m always hiding the past
Don’t take it personal that’s who I am
I don’t confide when you ask
So we go in circles baby

You want me spilling my soul
But you got to work to make me
We talk about us while I hold you
You’re hoping your words can change things


I can tell just by your face your waiting patiently
Because you know I like to take things slow
It’s too much to say at once so where should we begin
With everything you never wanted me to know


Tell me what have you been thinking I’m patiently asking now speak it
Can you release all the secrets that you have been keeping
Locked away from me I need this, give me your reason
I’m not the one to judge I’d rather listen
I’ll show you love though I know I can’t fix ix
Yes I understand and won’t look at you different
Just give me your hand and let’s talk for a minute
Tell me the thoughts you won’t say to your family and friends because they might start to worry
Let me be part of your mess
Tell me the thoughts you suppress
Some things are hard to confess
Even reluctantly just open up to me trust me it sucks to be trapped in the dark
So let us embark in the night and bring all our dark to the light, alright?

Skeletons lay in your closet
Can you let me in on your secrets
Yes I know you’re scared but I want it
So how can I make you be open
Please tell me your history now and say what you have never spoken
Just reveal your story and I’ll pick up all the pieces you’ve broken


I can tell just by your face your waiting patiently
Because you know I like to take things slow
It’s too much to say at once so where should we begin
With everything you never wanted me to know


Damn it I’m done with the silence I want you to say what’s kept quiet
Deep in the depths of your psyche and heart
I’ve shown you mine can let me see yours
Let me know more

Why do you need to be strange I can take it
Tell me the reason you hate conversations
Just give me the key to your shame I’ll replace it with new memories that we made no escaping
Take me way back to the moments that made you afraid of the bond that we share
Need love I’m giving you some
I hope you’ll eventually come out then we’ll really be one
My life’s an open book can I at least read a chapter of yours?
I know that this hasn’t happened before
But I want to see what’s inside
The world that I haven’t explored


I can tell just by your face your waiting patiently
Because you know I like to take things slow
It’s too much to say at once so where should we begin
With everything you never wanted me to know

8. Voices in My Head

Written by Kris Dagen, Eduardo Urbaez, and Mark Richardson

  

I’m a night club drinker and polite love seeker
When the drinks get stronger then I grow weaker
I been fighting with my conscious
I go back and forth with that conflict
I’m faithful I don’t want to break a promise
But it’s tough as hell to be honest 

It’s so hard now I feel like I’m brainwashed
My mind says no but I can’t stop
I’m trying to escape my fate
But it just takes me back to the same spot

Don’t know should I leave this world alone
To go and chill with my girl at home
I still can’t tell what’s right for me
I really don’t know which life to lead


I can hear demons screaming, yeah
All these voices in my head
I hear demons screaming, ooh


I’m a night club drinker and polite love seeker
When the drinks get stronger then I grow weaker
I can’t help it when I see you I can’t stop the urge I need to
Hear the voice inside and I bite my tongue
My tongue touches yours what have I done

It’s two different sides to me
Don’t know what to do or decide to be
I’m stuck in between two roads in life
I need her but I want you to hold me tight all night

Make an offer I can’t refuse
I don’t care let’s break the rules
I want to hold on yeah the fight is strong
And I tried so long but I can’t tell right from wrong, why?


I can hear demons screaming, yeah
All these voices in my head
I hear demons screaming in, ooh 

I can hear demons screaming, yeah
All these voices in my head
I hear demons screaming in, ooh 

I can hear demons screaming, yeah
All these voices in my head
I hear demons bleeding in

9. Washaway

Written by Mark Richardson & Kris Dagen

  

Wash away all my darkness and emotion

Fall away sweet night

Stretch into the Sunrise

Wash away all lies

Bitter indiscretions

Holiday all night

Dancing in the morning


It’s a different day

Leave your worries in the past let them dissipate

When you down on your luck don’t forget your way

When the going gets tough don’t resent your faith and get back up

I feel alive again

I only want to focus on the positives

I got a family who loves me and lots of friends

I know it feels like it but it’s not the end I promise


I belong to you, to you, to you, to you

I belong to you, to you


We all make mistakes

But you live and learn it ain’t make or break

Now I feel just fine I’m enjoying this ride it won’t kill my vibe

No not this time

Got to set yourself free

Because if you stuck too long it’s unhealthy

You only need faith and you can always start over with a clean slate

Don’t be ashamed of it we can all relate


Felt depressed said I’m through with life

I was stuck in the dark but the future bright and I’m resilient

Got no time to be stuck in my feelings

I let it all go 

It’s normal we rise and fall

So please don’t sweat the small things at all

And just don’t dwell on that for too long be strong make peace with that and move on


I belong to you, to you

Wash away all my darkness and emotion

Fall away sweet night

Stretch into the Sunrise

Wash away all lies

Bitter indiscretions

Holiday all night

Dancing in the morning

Ahhh


I want to be with you, I want to be with you, I want to be with you, let it all go

I want to be with you, I want to be with you, I want to be with you, just let it all go
