about

This album is the culmination of the work we've put in the past couple months. It embodies my doubts and fears in my aspirations, the apprehension in my relationships, and the effect it has on me. It's a personal album and I hope you all can vibe with it.

It's incredibly surreal to have this body of work done and pressed. This is our first real big step to what could be our future. It's extremely daunting and intimidating, but I've a peace about it where I feel we'll be ok.

The reason we called the album Lanes is because we wanted to pursue this dream in our own way, our own "lane." We didn't want to compromise who we were and what we believed in to achieve our goals. A lot of times people can get too caught up in pursuing their passions and lose sight of who they are. Lanes acknowledges the struggles, but stands firm in what we believe is right.

I hope this finds meaning in your life.

//

The deluxe version includes the first four songs we've released. It captures our whole journey. Thank you for supporting us this far. We felt it made sense to depict the true nature of us making our own lane.

-Nieman

Tell me
Are you willing to go cuz I want you to know

---
//pre-chorus
This could be our lives
So comfortable
Wouldn't it be nice, so nice
Perfect in my eyes
So beautiful
What else baby could you possibly be
looking for?
---

Lifeline
I'll provide what you rely on for a lifetime
Only thing on my mind
Is that there's nothing I won't do to make you all mine
Just mine

No I can't tell the future
But I know
That I've got to pursue her
Don't let go
And if this doesn't work

I've been here waitin debating if you'd come along

Track Name: Scared of it All
scared of it all

//verse1
What are we doin
Going through the motions
Can you tell me baby
What are we doin
Floating cross an ocean
Of uncertainty
In what we are doing

I'd be lying
I'd be lying
If I said I wasn't scared of it all
I'd be lying
I'd be lying
If I said I wasn't afraid to fall

Call it fear of failure
Maybe I'm
Maybe I'm
Just afraid to fail her

//verse2
Oh Baby, no I can't front
I can't have you waiting
So afraid that you'll be done
And we will soon be fadin
No It's not that I don't love
Who you are and who you want to be
Just would hate if you gave up
Your life and world because of me

//pre-chorus
I'd rather have you leave
Then go through hell with me
Let me tell you what I think
Let me ask you one more thing

//chorus
How can you be sure
That what you want is this love
That you won't give it up
How can you be sure
We ain't wasting our time
Putting it all on the line
How can you be sure
Track Name: Day One's
day one's

//chorus
This songs for my day ones
Holding it all together since day one
Lines have dropped, but this ones for the ones who've stayed on
Whole squad on my back this ones for you
For you

//verse1
Rewind
Back to the days
I was that boy still stuck in his ways
Clique deep, no sleep, on two wheels
Undone, day one, how do you feel
Reminiscent
Considering a few still distant.
Book a flight in the morning
From Europe to oregon

1130 California
Nothing I won’t do for ya
Cruzado, Gatus
Know I gotchu
When my world’s in disorder,
My brother Ryan’s always holding it down
I got one take that put me on to the sound
I know
Got my back anywhere I go
Through the highs and lows
You were all there when times moved slow

No, I’m not alone
Even though nothing was the same
My day one’s set in stone
Ima take this to the grave

//verse2
Mom dad
Storms over
promise to get you that Range Rover
I got you like you got me
Rest easy, you could lean on my shoulder
Whatever you want I'll provide
The same way you did my whole life
No gas, no money, no job, no car
You were both there every single time oh

I am nothing
Without you two
I am nothing
sorry for the pain I've caused
And if I ever pushed your buttons
Yeah,
I tend to do that
But both you two already knew that
Didn't need convincing that you two were listening
Cuz ma and pa you already proved that
Yeah

I know all I know of love
From the love I found in you
Unconditional and true
That's real
Track Name: Lanes
Lost in my thoughts
Haven't gotten rest I
Connect the dots
Something doesn't feel right
This just ain't me

City lights
In my memories
Took a drive
Running in empty
Improvising

I'm Trying to find my way
I'm Trying to find my place
I don't know how long I can take
So it's time
To make my own lane

Where did we lose control?
Where did we lose control?
When did I lose my soul?
I don't know
I don't know
Track Name: I'm Still Here
verse 1//
You think that you’ve got me figured out
But I’ve only just begun
Been down
A few rounds
Now the waiting’s finally done
I know
That you think
You've seen everything there is to see of me

pre-chorus//
But Ive got you where I want you
Size me up like a weigh in
Met with doubt on my way in
I Gotchu
Feeling a type of way
I am not a stranger to what they've gotta say

chorus//
They always said the boy would never last
But I’m still here
They always wondered if we'd Everlast
But I’m still here
Black, blue, and bruised
Everything to prove
Got my world to gain and my world to lose
They always wondered if we stood a chance
But, I’m still here

verse 2//
Please dont ever count me down and out
Cause you'll never see the day
Can't tap out
I've mapped out
How all of this is going to pan out
Oh yeah
You see?
There’s more to me than what you may believe, believe

pre-chorus//
chorus//

outro//
Knuckles bare
My heart too
Don't know where
I lost you
Don’t know where you've been
Don’t know how you've been
She thought that this whole time
I wanted to be him
Oh no no
Oh no no
My greatest fear
Is that I’ll still be hear
With nothing to show
Except my blood and my tears
Oh, I pray to God that wont be me
But I guess that we will see
We’ll see
We’ll see
In a few years,
Will I still be here?
We’ll see
We’ll see

I'm still here
I'm still here.
Track Name: Seen
//verse 1
Smoke and the scream
Cloud up my lungs
Say I can't breathe
Oh tell me what I have done

Problems of old
God, I'm still young
Take these chains off
So maybe my soul can run

//chorus
What have you seen, child?
What have you seen?
To see a nightmare
Before the dream
what have you seen, child?
What have you seen?
(x2)

I saw lives lost in the Land of the Free
I saw blood shed in the land of the free.

//verse 2
While you walk free
I'm fast asleep
Heart full of lead
But still your hands are clean

God, I'm still young
Don't take this from me
I know only pain
And with it is tragedy

//chorus

//outro
I'd rather sleep
Stay away from my reality
I'd rather sleep
No use in staying up
if my whole worlds upside down
Turn the tables back around
I don't wanna wake
another day
In the same old state
like we hit replay oh No
If we all think we're right
Then what would be left?
If an eye equals an eye
Then what would be next
Oh, I'd rather sleep
Then see
My world fall
Around me
Track Name: Catch Me If You Can
verse1//
She said, "Catch me if you can."
Followed her in hot pursuit
She wondered if she'd ever get captured again
I said you haven't got a clue

If I fail at least I tried
It's the most that I can do
Lay my head to rest, be rid of the thought that I
Didn't do all I could for you

chorus//
Don't you know
You're a real one
Don't you see
What I see
Don't you know
You're a loaded gun
Taking aim at me
Boom shot

bridge//
I fell into your spell
And there's no getting out
I'm falling deeper
Going down down down down
You've got me in your hands
I'll stay long as I can
I'm yours whenever
If you're down down down

chorus//
Don't you know
You're a real one
Don't you see
What I see
Don't you know
You're a loaded gun
Baby you're taking aim at me
Boom shot
Track Name: Throwback Love
verse 1//
My father always said that love was putting all her needs before mine
He was right
But my generation views it very differently than he and his time
We’ve lost sight

pre-chorus//
But I'm finding out now
Maybe we've watered love down
Used to matter where we were
Used to mean every word

chorus//
But distant are the days
Three words had some weight
Bring me back that throwback love
I know I may be young
But I can't be the only one
Asking for that throwback love

verse 2//
My mother used to say, back in the day, that men would actually try
No lie
If chivalry is dead then someone come and breathe in new life.
Maybe I

pre-chorus//
But I'm finding out now
Maybe we've watered love down
Used to matter where we were
Used to mean every word
But

chorus//
distant are the days
Three words had some weight
Bring me back that throwback love
I know I may be young
But I can't be the only one
asking for that throwback love

Live through memories
Of how it used to be
Bring me back that throwback love
I pray once this is done
I won't be the only one
asking for that throwback love
