Track Name: Cabin Fever
Cabin Fever

This place has become all too familiar,
I’ve got to get out,
I’ve been bouncing off the walls for days,
There’s got to be a better way to pass the time,
The wind, it howls outside,
I’ll stay in here and hide,
I’ll go out another day,

I’m coming down with something,
It’s probably nothing,
Nothing at all,
She says it’s cabin fever,
But I just don't believe her,
She’s always wrong

The clock keeps ticking on,
Soon another day will be gone,
And I’m still in here,
With no means to escape,
No chariot awaits out there for me

Isolated from the world,
Sitting here at home,
Vegging out all day.
Track Name: Playing On Repeat
Playing On Repeat,

I never imagined it would ever end this way,
We were laughing and making music just the other day,
Your father called me up and broke the news to me,
I couldn't take it in,
I just couldn't believe,

For hours I stared at the walls,
Trying to make sense of it,
This can’t be right at all,
Your brother confirmed the news,
What I heard had been right,
You were never coming back,
Not since last night,

If I could see you one last time,
I’d retract my statement,
And i’d tell you, you were right,
The record you gave me has been playing on repeat,
Since I found out you were never coming back

We had a celebration for your amazing life,
We drank, we danced, we played our music,
Keeping you in mind,
It’s been the hardest 14 days,
We’ll never forget you Morgan,
You’re never far away.
Track Name: It'll Be Alright
It’ll Be Alright

I just got a letter in the mail today,
It told me that my troubles would be blown away,
It couldn’t be an act of god,
Cause I don’t pray,
But i’ve got a feeling it’ll be alright,

For months now i’ve been wondering how it’ll all pan out,
Trying to stay optimistic,
But i’ve had my doubts,
I’ve constantly been feeling like i’ve been kicked around,
But i’ve got a feeling it’ll be alright,

Goodbye to a quiet life,
We’ll leave it behind tonight,

For way too long, it’s been way too dark,
But I think that i’ve found the light,
You know that nothing comes easy,
For either of us,
But i’ve got a feeling it’ll be alright,

A huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders now,
It’s changed right back from red to black,
It all allows me to get out of this place i’m in,
And don’t look back,
I’ve got a feeling it’ll be alright.
Track Name: Terrors Of The Night
Terrors Of The Night,

I close my eyes and there I go again,
Away from all the troubles of the day to day,
It’s only a matter of time,
Until they come back to haunt me,
Creeping up on me while i’m asleep,

There’s someone in the house,
I have to check it out,
So quietly I make my way out of the room,
Theres someone standing in the hallway,
He approaches me and stabs me straight through the heart,

Pulled in by the fear,
Darling hold me near,
Protect me from the terrors of the night,
And tell me it’s ok,
Make them go away,
Protect me from the terrors of the night,

Its 2am, like clockwork i’m awake,
And the screams inside my head,
Have become reality again,
I look for comfort in the darkness,
And there I find you reaching out,
Reminding me I’m home,

By morning I feel fine,
No memories of anything that happened in the night,
But it’s only a matter of time,
Until they come back again.
