Track Name: Bones
Who's God
The stars or the ocean
Break the law
Get carried away
If not
The heart is stolen
Sunset
Will fade

Even though
our time has come undone
There's reasons why
we follow the endless sun
Memories
Have fallen one by one
So please stand

Who's God
The stars or the ocean
Break the law
Get carry away
If not
The heart is stolen
Sunset
Will fade

Bridge:

Another try
Into the night
How it leaves your body so cold

Nothing to do
Nothing to prove
It can leave you breathless

Inviting me
Embody you
Let it Right down into your bones
Feel it right down into your bones

Outro:
Try to fight the feeling for
The sun is like winter
What am I feeling
Track Name: Gatekeeper
V1
Won't Go
With your eyes on me
See
I'm standing on the edge

Is it my story
And even if I lied
Can't hardly feel the pain

PreChorus:

Na na na na na
Oooooooh Oooooh

Chorus:

Don't hold me back Gatekeeper
You're what I need I need ya
I'm goin in gatekeeper
Cuz we can live forever
Cuz we can live forever

V2
Oh No got a hold on me
I'm burnin in the flames
Staring at me
Fallin' to my knees
but i'm standing in the end

PreChorus;

Na na na na na
Oooooooh Oooooh

Chorus:

Don't hold me back Gatekeeper
You're what I need I need ya
I'm goin in gatekeeper
Cuz we can live forever
Cuz we can live forever
Track Name: Halo Halo Man

Outright stuck
It's got me feenin'
(Ah ya come get me)

Down on luck
I hear it call my name
(Ah ya come get me)

It’s weighin' down on me
(Ah ya come get me)

I just can't settle down
I need it through my veins
I hear 'im
It's The Halo Halo Man

Chorus:

Ooooh
It's the Halo Halo Man x4

This is all i want
It's all I needed

V2:
Midnight train
Let's move fast forward
(Ah ya come get me)

Self proclaim
And I'm Kickin' down your door
(Ah ya come get me)

I guess I'll take it all
For all to see

I just can't settle down
I hear it come again
I hear him

Right right down to the floor

Chorus to End
Track Name: Suns
V1

You're before your time
You are
Where you coming from
The stars
What you doing here
With me
Now you can never leave
I have lost my way
Alone
So far from my home
So far from the things I know
And now you're here with me
Tonite
To make the world our light

Pre Chorus:

I will put you in a bottle
Take you to the next tomorrow
On and On
We'll light the night like suns
X 2

Chorus:

Light Light Light Light
Light It Up
N
Let it Out

V2
You cannot be mine
Now you, you're the only one
I knew
What you doing here
With me
Now you can never leave

Pre Chorus:

I will put you in a bottle
Take you to the next tomorrow
On and On
We'll light the night like suns
X 2

Say good bye to the life you know
Say good bye to the life you know
You know it

x 4

Chorus:

Light Light Light Light
Light It Up &
Let it Out

Bridge:

Light It Up &
Let it Out

Hard Luck
Trouble Talk
Then Shout it Out

Time to let go
From all that you know
Cuz inside your heart keeps burning

Love Drunk
Boot stomp
And Shout it loud

Light Light Light Light
Light It UP

Outtro:

On and on and on
On and all night long
Track Name: Curse
V1:

Send out the angels
That's Chasing the night
Seconds before We
we take flight
(Trust Me)

Walking a line that's
Left unknown
I'll take you back to a place where
Love can belong
(Trust me)

If the cards read
It's our turn, turn
Where our lines meet
We're lifting the curse

Chorus:

How we got here
Lifting the Curse
Love so simple
Lifting
I will not fear
Lifting the curse
Love so simple
Lifting

V2:

Breaking my habits
Before breaking Ice
Somehow we got to
Got to think twice
(Trust me)

Destroying the failures
these failures of old
Restless thru days and the nights
When these chains feel cold
(Trust me)

But if the heart beats
Lesson learn, learn
Where our lines meet
We're lifting the curse

Repeat Chorus

Ending

Together we're lifting the curse
Track Name: All In
V1
When our tides
Surrender
I'll finally sail away with you
spirits fly
And we'll combine
Like Overproof and lime

V2
When our crimes
Outnumber
I'll let it go when I'm with you
Reasons why we can't define
All these rules design

All in hear me now
All in Here and now
All in hear me now
All in Here and now

All in
All in
Track Name: World Gong Crazy (featuring HAN HAN)
(ALEX JR)
She gonna say this world has gone crazy
This world’s gone crazy
She don’t stay

In these last days her minds always trippin
Another obsession, another game

Aaahhhhaaa 4X

(Verse I: Tagalog)

Buksan ang isipan at imulat ang mata
Tingnan ang ‘yong paligid
At ano ang nakikita?
Humarap sa salamin
Sa sarili ay aminin
Di ka lang ginawa
Ikaw din ay manggagawa

Bata, bata paano ka ginawa? 2x

Lumaki sa kahirapan
Buong buhay lumalaban
Kailangan niyong malaman
Dagdagan ang karunungan
Tuklasin ang daan tungo sa kaligayahan
Di ka lang pinanganak para lang ika’y maghirap
Alamin ang totoo para sa sarili mo
Ikaw ay nandirito, kailangan ng mundo

Bata, bata paano ka ginawa? 3x
Bata, bata ano ang ‘yong ginagawa?

(ALEX JR)
She gonna say this world has gone crazy
This world’s gong crazy
She don’t stay

Aaahhhaa 4x

(Verse II: Cebuano)
Hoy ayaw kalimti og ayaw ilimod
Sa tanang katawhan, ibutyag mo gayud
Nga ang imong nahibaw-an
Di lang pansit og adobo
Unta imong ma-amgo kinsa ka og ako

Ikaw ba kaha si Donya Consolacion?
Asawa sa Kastila nga mapag-aron-ingnon?
Nakit-an mo na ba si Sisa nga naghilak?
Nawad-an sa buot sa pagpangita sa iyang anak
Hain naman ang mga Maria Clara, ang mga Elias og Crisostomo Ibarra
Liwat ka’s mga prayle, bakakon nga labi
Daugdaugon si Basilio tawgon nga pilibustero

Kini ang akong awhag kaninyo mga igsoon
Unta inyong bation og inyong paminawon
Nganong ang kabataan kinahanglan mang bahinon?
Naay tawgon nga F.O.B, nay tawgon nga “bacon”
Sigaa ang mata og hunahuna-a
Ikaw, ako, kitang tanan kay usa ra
Usa ang gigikanan, usa ang dugo
Gimugna sa abo nga us aka Pilipino
Dili mo na tuhu-an ang ilang mga bakak
Kini inyong anak, Bisayang magbabalak

Bata, bata, paano ka ginawa?
Bata, bata ano ang ‘yong ginagawa?

WORLD GONG CRAZY (English Translation)

ALEX JR
She gonna say this world has gone crazy
This world’s gone crazy
She don’t stay

In these last days her minds always trippin
Another obsession, another game

Aaahhhhaaa 4X


(Verse I)
Open your mind and keep your eyes wide
Look around you
And what do you see?
Face the mirror
Admit it to your self
You were not only created
You are also a creator

Child, child how were you made? 2x

I was raised in adversity
Fought all my life
You have to know this
Enhance your own knowledge
Discover the path to your own happiness
You were not only born to suffer
Seek the truth for your own sake
You are here because the world needs you

Child, child how were you made? 3x
Child, child what are you doing?

(ALEX JR)
She gonna say this world has gone crazy
This world’s gone crazy
She don’t stay

Aaahhhaa 4x

(Verse II)
Hey don’t forget and don’t deny
You have to tell the whole world
That what you know is not only “pansit” and “adobo”
I hope you realize who you are and who I am

Are you Donya Consolacion?
Pretentious wife of the Spaniard?
Have you seen Sisa cry?
She has gone crazy looking for her sons
Where are the Maria Claras, the Elias and Crisostomo Ibarras
You are like the friars, deceitful liars
Oppress Basilio and call him a filibuster

This is my call to you my brothers/ sisters
I hope you feel it and listen carefully
Why do we have to divide the youth?
Them call FOBS, them call “bacons”
Eyes wide open and think hard
You, me, all of us are one
One heritage, one blood
Molded from the ashes to be a Filipino
Don’t believe the lies fed to you
This is your child, the Bisaya poet

Child, child how were you made?
Child, child, what are you doing?
Track Name: BAD MAN (BONUS TRACK)
V1

I almost died back there
But I told baby Jesus
Oh Hell no

I know my life ain't fair
But I'm still not wearin
No halo

You can keep your suit and tie
I crash your party
Thru the window

Look for the man outside
Could it be
Pray Santo Nino

Chorus:

Cuz you a bad man
Oooooh
Just like me

Look back
and burn your that past
You've been called to take down that beast

Cuz your a bad man
oooh ooooh
Just Like Me

V2

I came alive back there
I told the devil
That stink yo

I know that life's not fair
But I gotta climb out
The pit hole

Throw down your light for me
Cuz I'm about to get lit yo

Hands up and touch the sky
Let It Be
Pray Santo Nino
