about

What We’re Made Of was created from the sweat, tears, talent, pizza, and cargo shorts of five young men during the Fall of 2014 and the Summer of 2015. During that time, we each endured hardships in our own separate ways. “What We’re Made Of” is a culmination of over a year of growth as musicians, as human beings, and as a family. Experiences make us who we are. Happiness and sadness each play their part. We hope these songs can relate to you in the ways they relate to us. This is what we’re made of.

Track Name: What We're Made Of
There's a stallion in all of us
Trying to get out.
Going for the gold.
But we've got a whip to keep it in line,
So we die at 20, we're buried at 85.

This is our life.
We only get one shot.

This is the proving ground.
This is where we find what we're made of.

Entitled people they do nothing.
Entitled dreamers only have wishful thinking.
Entitled people waste to nothing.
They live for nothing.
Do you want to live for nothing?

This is our life.
We only get one shot.

This is the proving ground.
This is where we find what we're made of.

We're a nation of victims and spiritually poor, who settle for the lesser. We're made for more.

We're made of pain.
We're made of hope.
We're made of love.
We're made of faith.
We're made to live.
We're made to grow.
I swear we were made for more.

This is the proving ground.
This is where we find what we're made of.
This is the proving ground.
This is where we find what we're made of.
Track Name: Anchors
Two people on a ship.
Stranded in the ocean.
It's not from a lack of wind.
It's from a lack of devotion.

So call the lifeboats swiftly ‘cause this one’s going under

I am your anchor, baby.
You are my anchor.

I once said I was a rich man, but I got the reason wrong.
It's not from what I had lost.
It's what I had gained.

The vices in between divided.
We lost control, our bows collided.
We climbed into lifeboats ‘cause this ship was going under.

I am your anchor, baby.
You are my anchor, baby.
Let the waves come crashing over.
Let the ropes go falling from our feet.
Let the anchors hit the seafloor.

It's hard to float when all we know is how to drown.
We lived at sea always in search of stable ground.

Two people on a ship.
Stranded in the ocean.
It's not from a lack of wind.
It's from a lack of devotion.

I am your anchor, baby.
You are my anchor, baby.
Let the waves come crashing over.
Let the ropes go falling from our feet.
Let the anchors hit the seafloor.
The heavy burdens released.
Track Name: Knockout
I woke up to the sounds of a starting fight.
I can’t think or move.
All I have is the fear of falling short.

Get ready for the knockout.
The heavyweight and the lightweight.
Oh, get ready for the fight now.
I’m going in, I’m going in.

Get ready for the knockout.
Only one of us is gonna make it out.
Get ready for the knockout.
You’ll wish you’d picked a better fight.
‘Cause it’s the one, two (oh).
One, two (oh).
Knock me down, I’ll bury you.
Get ready for the knockout.
Get ready for the hit when it comes back around.

You’re not calling shots ‘cause I’m calling you out.
I will take you down and leave you wanting more.

Get ready for the knockout.
The heavyweight and the lightweight.
Oh, get ready for the fight now.
I’m going in, I’m going in.

Get ready for the knockout.
Only one of us is gonna make it out.
Get ready for the knockout.
You’ll wish you’d picked a better fight.
‘Cause it’s the one, two (oh).
One, two (oh).
Knock me down, I’ll bury you.
Get ready for the knockout.
Get ready for the hit when it comes back around.

If you really wanna cut me deep, come on and hit me harder.
So shut your mouth and move your feet.
Come on and hit me harder.

Get ready for the knockout.
Only one of us is gonna make it out.
Get ready for the knockout.
You’ll wish you’d picked a better fight.
‘Cause it’s the one, two (oh).
One, two (oh).
Knock me down, I’ll bury you.
Get ready for the knockout.
Get ready for the hit when it comes back around.
Track Name: Michigan (Is Gonna Blow This Game)
Small town on a Friday night.
We’ll come alive when the feeling’s right, but I’m so sick of waiting for this.
Always looking for something more.
I’ll be the one to change the score ‘cause I’m not going down.

No, I’m not going down so easy.

(Hey)
We’re not gonna miss our time to shine.
We’ll drive into the city lights.
You can’t stop us now.
We’ll hear the sounds of New Orleans.
(See the) Lights of Las Vegas.
Maybe we’ll come home.

Bright stage on the headline.
Close your eyes and feel the light.
I can’t believe I’m standing here.
Never thought I’d get this far.
Dreams come true if you put your heart in every single thing you do.

Put your heart in all you do.

(Hey)
We’re not gonna miss our time to shine.
We’ll drive into the city lights.
You can’t stop us now.
We’ll see the bright lights of LA.
(Hear the) Sounds up in New York.
Maybe we’ll come home.

And now we’re having the time of our lives.
Living everything that we wanted.

(Hey)
We didn’t miss our time to shine.
We’ll drive into the city lights.
You can’t stop us now.
We’ll play the crowds ‘crossed the ocean.
The sounds of the cheers will keep us from coming home.
Track Name: Colorado Is Good For You
We’re worlds apart and we don’t know who we are.
I took one chance relying on the fact that we may not get tomorrow.
Please let me know.

I should have known.

When do I take the hint she gave me?
Convinced myself I had a chance.
I thought it was real.
That she was sincere.
All her excuses confirming my fears.
And I’m doubting myself again.
Like I’m just the second string.

This is not what I had planned.
My heart in my hands.
How on earth can I cope?

When do I take the hint she gave me?
Convinced myself I had a chance.
I thought it was real.
That she was sincere.
All her excuses confirming my fears.
And I’m doubting myself again.
Like I’m just the second string.

This is not what I had planned.
This is not what I had planned.

You’re the reason I kept trying.
Why didn’t you just tell me?
You’re the reason I kept trying.

You’re the reason.
You’re the reason.
You’re the reason I kept trying.
You’re the reason.
You’re the reason.
Why didn’t you just let me know?
Track Name: Stay
She said, “Please just leave me be.”
But baby I can’t leave without telling you how good you look when you’re angry.

Holding onto you and hoping we get through this.
You and me.
Baby, stay and wait with me.
Leave the past behind us.
Take our time, they’ll find us.
You and me.
Because you stayed with me.

Don’t fret.
The problems will remain when we return to the real world.
I just need some time with you, girl.

Holding onto you and hoping we get through this.
You and me.
Baby, stay and wait with me.
Leave the past behind us.
Take our time, they’ll find us.
You and me.
Because you stayed with me.

Holding onto you and hoping we get through this.
Leave the past behind and take our time, they’ll find us.
Stay and wait with me now baby.
We can be all we’ll need.
Never felt this way and I don’t want to rush this.
Take it step by step.
Just hold me hand we’ve got this.
You and me.

We can make it, trust me.
One and one ain’t easy, but if you have patience too, waiting is all you have to do.
Wait with me.
Wait with me.
Oh baby, stay and wait with me

(Instrumental)
Track Name: This Moment (feat. Jared Gaines)
She sits silently and waits for something in her life to change.
We all seem content while she’s lost in her head.
Unless he’s near to her, she seems dead.

We should just stay here all alone, ‘cause together you know.

I feel so alive tonight.
In this moment we’re timeless.
I feel so alive tonight and this moment is endless.

His mind’s racing.
Time is running out, but nothing’s better than what he’s got here and now.
He tries to scream out loud.
He’s trapped underneath the surface of his own skin.

We should just stay here all alone, ‘cause together you know.

I feel so alive tonight.
In this moment we’re timeless.
I feel so alive tonight and this moment is endless.

I feel so alive tonight and this moment is endless.

I feel so alive tonight.
In this moment we’re timeless.
I feel so alive tonight and this moment is endless.
Track Name: Coming Home
This is the last I sell myself short.
I’ll be coming home to you.
This is the last time I think to give up.
I’ll be coming home to you.

It’s time to focus.

All these nights that I spend away.
I do it all for you.
And all these late night drives.
I try to stay awake.
I will think of you.
And you wonder if it’s worth it.
When you see me at your door, you’ll know it was.

This is the last time I think to give up hope.
I'll be coming home to you.

It’s time to focus.
It’s time to run.

All these nights that I spend away.
I do it all for you.
And all these late night drives.
I try to stay awake.
I will think of you.
And you wonder if it’s worth it.
When you see me at your door...

It’ll take your breath.
Take your breath.
It’ll take your breath.
It’ll take your breath away.
It’ll take your breath.
It’ll take your breath away.

All these nights that I spend away.
I do it all for you.
And all these late night drives.
I try to stay awake.
I will think of you.
All these nights that I spend away.
I do it all for you.
And all these late night drives.
I try to stay awake.
I will think of you.
Track Name: No Regrets
I left my baggage at your terminal, but you sent it back.
I didn’t want it.
I didn’t need it.
When you first saw my ghost you stayed by my side.
Now you’re nowhere to be found.
Nowhere to be found.

And now I learned that I can make it on my own.
I may not have you, but I think you should know.

So here I stand.
No direction where to go.
When given fight or flight you took the easy road.
But I cannot lie.
It was the happiest time of my life.
You may disagree, but it wasn’t wasted.
I don’t regret it.

So here I am.
Two months later and I’m finally getting over it.
Getting over it.
I have no clue how you’re doing.
I haven’t talked to you in ages.
You’re probably doing fine.
Doing just fine.

But now I learned that I can make it on my own.
I may not have you, but I think you should know.

So here I stand.
No direction where to go.
When given fight or flight you took the easy road.
But I cannot lie.
It was the happiest time of my life.
You may disagree, but it wasn’t wasted.
I don’t regret it.

It’s been so long.
I don’t quite remember you.
But I thought you were beautiful and I still do.
We both have our faults.
Some worse than others.
We could have conquered them all if we had each other.

I don’t know if I should wait you out or let you go.
I’ve never had so much doubt.
I’ve never had to pray so much in my life.
I wish you would have stayed.
We could have made it right.

So here I stand.
No direction where to go.
When given fight or flight you took the easy road.
But I cannot lie.
It was the happiest time of my life.
You may disagree, but it wasn’t wasted.
I don’t regret it.

I don't regret it.
Track Name: Always
I’m writing you tonight with the hope that you will find it in your heart to let me know how you really feel.
Last we met, you told me that you needed time to try and figure out who you really are.

But now a month has passed and you still won’t let me know how you feel.
And I just needed to tell you.

I always said that I’d be there.
I meant that even if I’d have to lose myself.
Do you trust me enough to know that if I said I didn’t love you, you’d know that it’s a lie?

Five months, two weeks, and a day.
I still haven’t heard a thing.
I must be going insane to think...

That anything I write is getting through.
So I’ll write a song and hope it reaches you one night.

I always said that I’d be there.
I meant that even if I’d have to lose myself.
Do you trust me enough to know that if I said I didn’t love you, you’d know that it’s a lie?

I always said I’d be there.
I meant that even if I...
If I’d have to let go of who I am today.

I always said that I’d be there.
I meant that even if I’d have to lose myself.

I always said I’d be thereI meant that, but now I let you go.
And be alone today.
Please don’t write me.
Anything you send me will gather dust with memories of us.

If I ever told you that I loved you, look back in your mind and know that it was a lie.
