Track Name: This Is A Tennis Match
I'm here with my friends
We're gonna stick it through the end
No matter what the odds are
We're gonna stick it through the end

We've always got each others back from the very start
We're all together, we're never gonna fall apart
Track Name: Life Ain't Ez
[Verse]
After highschool I've been kicked out of my house
being told that I'm just getting too old
so I packed my bags and now im heading out
to a world that I don't even know,
I'm feeling numb from my head to my toes
growing up in the real world blows
and I'm afraid my life wont prove
what I want to show what i want to show

[Chorus]
Sometimes I know it can be crazy living on your own (living on your own)
growing up aint easy but I'll tell you that I've been there
we'll be fine you're alright just believe me.

[Verse 2]
Life's moving way too fast for my own liking
I take my time sorting things out in my head
Things are really getting pretty frightening
Everyday I wish I could stay in my bed

But there's just too much going on, I just gotta keep moving on
Never look back until I'm gone, I'm nothing more than just a pawn
But I know today, I'll leave my mark this day
Things were never ever ever gonna work this way

[Pre Chorus]
I've got this life to live, and what more can I give
I'm moving forward past my own mistakes
I've got this life to live, but what else can I give
We're moving forward no matter what it takes

[Chorus]
Sometimes I know it can be crazy living on your own (living on your own)
growing up aint easy but I'll tell you that I've been there
we'll be fine you're alright just believe me.
Track Name: With My Friends (ft. Eric Calderon)
Well I can barely see my future, it's right at the end our lives,
where our stories are yet to be told,
I'll let the wind take me when its my time
Im at the start ready to go
where I can feel my journey on the drive,
I'll just put all my worries to the side,
I'm all set and now it's my time to shine


VERSE
I'm getting up, I'm getting started on my way to the top
There's nothing left here but determination
I swear I'm giving this all I've got
Don't cross my path, don't try to make me stop

Man ain't it crazy that ive ended up here
It's already been a really bumpy road
but I'm staying till the end and ill never forget
I'll make it out, I'll make it out alive

VERSE 2
Let's kick it off, we'll hit the road
we're never gonna stop
I made it this far without your judgement
no slacking off, we'll never know
what we can really do
cause life ain't ez yeah that's what I meant.

[Breakdown]
All of this these things are circling in my head
at the same time, at the same time x2

[Outro]
I'm here with my friends yeah I'm here with my friends
We all want to see what lies ahead
- We've always got each others backs from the very start
- We're all together, we're never gonna fall apart
Track Name: Standing Together 2.0
[Verse 1]
We ARE always searching for the
things that keep us here
There's NO turning back now
This time we face our fears

I'll take my chances making those mistakes
I'll learn for myself what it means to give or take
Find my own ways to deal with hate

[Chorus]
What's the point of backing down
we're just trying to find the answers
we won't stop until you're in the ground
cause its not me, it's you that's keeping me down

[Verse 2]
It's A struggle when you find out you're all alone
Make THE best of life now, don't ever doubt your own
This time it's our turn to take what's ours
There's no limit here we're reaching for the stars

We'll stand together never fall apart
Never fall apart!

[Pre Chorus]
Just remember that we've won
The struggles now long gone
we've already won

[Chorus]
What's point of backing down
we're just trying to find the answers
we won't stop until you're in the ground
cause its not me its you thats keeping me down

What's point of backing down
we're just trying to find the answers
we won't stop until you're in the ground
we've made our choice and we're not sticking around

[Get Rekt]
All those times you said we'd never make it out
Well don't look now cause I'm tearing this place down

EEEEAAAAGH

EEYA-A-A-A-A-EAUGH

UEEA-A-A-A-A-UHH
Track Name: This Isn't A Tennis Match (ft. Scottay)
[Verse 1]
This isn't what you expected to see
I'm making progress, just hoping you see this
And all I want is to be set free
It's time you found out what it's like to be me.

[Chorus 1]
I'm trying my hardest not to disappoint you
I'll travel my farthest just so I could see you
Making decisions was never my strong suit
Just hoping you feel this the same way that I do.

I'll keep my thoughts to myself
cause that's where they should stay
I'm losing all sense of self
What could be wrong with me?
Growing up isn't what I wanted
But giving up isn't where I'm headed.

[Verse 2]
This isn't who I expected to be.
Is this progress really progress or is it just me?
All I need is more time, just more time you'll see,
My indecision was decision and now it's wrecking me.


[Solo]


[Bridge]
I'm never moving past this, I'll always be a sad kid
but you won't have to deal with me
cause I'll be the person I was meant to be

[Chorus 2]
I'm trying my hardest not to disappoint you
I'll travel my farthest just so I could see you
Making decisions was never my strong suit
Just hoping you feel this the same way that I do.

I'll keep my thoughts to myself
cause that's where they should stay
I'm losing all sense of self
What could be wrong with me?

Growing up isn't what I wanted
But giving up isn't where I'm headed.
Track Name: #Ezrevival2k15 (ft. Varrick Jay)
AWWWW
YEAH!!

VERSE 1

I'm with my friends and I feel like I'm right at home
we're playing Smash and they know they're all getting owned
Now they're leaving and I'm left here all alone
I hope they come back cause they wont pick up their phones.

Now who will help me with these gang vocals.
I'm at a loss for words (I'm at a loss for words!)
This just sucks, much like this album
life is tough, it couldn't get any worse

VERSE 2

I burned through all the movies that I owned
Thought I had something to do but I guess I don't
All my friends went to sleep three hours ago
I'll just pretend I'm in a different timezone

Someday soon, I will pack up my things and move
Far away from this deadbeat town
Me and my friends have it all figured out

FOOTBALL

Tennis???
Track Name: End of the Road (ft. Alex Iglesias)
[Verse]
What are the things that we live and we fight for
we're getting closer to The place that we aimed for
I'm sick of where ive been
I wish I had something more

Than these days wasted doing something that I hate
MORE THAN ANYTHING, ARE YOU LISTENING
The thought of leaving sounds just great
MORE THAN ANYTHING, ILL PACK ALL MY THINGS
AND GO!!!

[Prechorus]
To the places we never thought we'd ever see
become the person we never thought we'd ever be
I make my choices like water on the open sea
I take my chances just hoping it will set me free
I keep on thinking what if there's something wrong with me
Impulsive tendencies are making me the enemy

[Chorus]
Things couldn't get any worse
I wish that I could leave
I think I'm making things worse
It's really scaring me x2

[Verse 2]
I couldn't think of another place to stay
I made it far enough without your help, I'm doing okay

THIS ISN'T EASY
I'M STILL TAKING THIS IN, IM GONNA BE FAR AWAY,
YOU'LL NEVER KEEP ME HERE

Yet here I am making all the same mistakes again
WILL I EVER LEARN, MAYBE ITS NOT MY TURN
Just one more day, I'll be gone yeah I'll be on my way
WILL I EVER LEARN, WHERE'S THERE LEFT TO TURN?

[Breakdown]
GO!

[Outro]
Things couldn't get any worse
-I wish that I could leave
I think I'm making things worse
-It's really scaring me
If I could only have things figured out
then we could work it out, let's just talk about
If we could only figure things out
we'd be just fine, yeah we'd be alright.
