I’m trapped In your ordinary space Things aren’t moving at my pace But I'm gonna get out No more Staying in one place While it all goes to waste Because I'm making changes Now I’m getting louder And you’re gonna listen I’m getting louder You’re gonna listen Things are gonna change They’re gonna change I’m getting louder You’re gonna listen Things are gonna change They’re gonna change I’m free I finally feel awake So many decisions to make But at least their mine How far You think I could go The only way to know Is to start moving Now I’m getting louder And you’re gonna listen I’m getting louder You’re gonna listen Things are gonna change They’re gonna change I’m getting louder You’re gonna listen Things are gonna change They’re gonna change

Do you feel that Someone’s after you Lets come together We’ll make it through Don't you want to Come alive With your head up And open eyes Always look up And never look down We made it this far We can’t stop now Pick everyone up And never back down Come with us and We’ll get through this Its a long way its a long way Its a long way down from here Its a long way its a long way Its a long way down from here We’ll fight back we’ll fight back We’ll fight back we’ll fight back We’ll fight back we’ll fight back We’ll fight back we’ll fight back When you finally Begin to see What’s going down You’ll believe If we stand up strong Against it all We could beat these odds Tear down these walls Always look up And never look down We made it this far We can’t stop now Pick everyone up And never back down Come with us and We’ll get through this Its a long way its a long way Its a long way down from here Its a long way its a long way Its a long way down from here We’ll fight back we’ll fight back We’ll fight back we’ll fight back We’ll fight back we’ll fight back We’ll fight back we’ll fight back We’ll never break We’ll never break We’ll never break We’ll never break We’ll never break We’ll never break We’ll never break We’ll never break We’ll fight back we’ll fight back We’ll fight back we’ll fight back We’ll fight back we’ll fight back We’ll fight back we’ll fight back

We're gonna party 'til the floor caves in under our feet No matter where we land it will be right where we should be We know what's best for us! In ourselves we trust! We’ll never forgot who we are Once you know whats important and what is not You’ll figure out what makes you who you are Try and stop us Try and stop us Try and stop us Try and stop us Sometimes you have to do things that you don’t want to It doesn’t mean that these are the things that make you Take it with a grain of salt! It may not be your fault! Keep your focus on things that make you better Once you know whats important and what is not You’ll figure out what makes you who you are Try and stop us Try and stop us Try and stop us Try and stop us If it makes you miserable do your best to make it better If it makes you miserable do your best to make it better If it makes you miserable do your best to make it better If it makes you miserable do your best to make it better If it makes you miserable do your best to make it better If it makes you miserable do your best to make it better

Somehow we’re still alive Nothing’s too hard to climb Work ‘til the sweat’s in our eyes Now its our time to thrive We never lose our drive We never lose a fight Our goal’s not just to survive Now its our time to thrive We’re still kicking and we’re alive (Now its our time to thrive) We’re still kicking and we’re alive (Now its our time to thrive) We’re still kicking and we’re alive (Now its our time to thrive) We’re still kicking and we’re alive (Now its our time to thrive) We’re still kicking and we’re alive (Now its our time to thrive) We’re still kicking and we’re alive (Now its our time to thrive) We’re still kicking and we’re alive (Now its our time to thrive) We’re still kicking and we’re alive (Now its our time to thrive)

We're coming back Becoming strong We're getting back what we had before Our eyes are open We're staying focused You don't know what we're capable of You can't hide it from us We're gonna figure it out You can't hide it from us We're gonna figure it out You can't hide it from us We're gonna figure it out You can't hide it from us We're gonna figure it out You can't silence us You can't blind us We're gonna do what we can We’ll do what's right If we have to fight We're coming at you with all we have You can't hide it from us We're gonna figure it out You can't hide it from us We're gonna figure it out You can't hide it from us We're gonna figure it out You can't hide it from us We're gonna figure it out After all this time We finally got it right Now we're fighting For our lives After all this time We finally got it right Now we're fighting For our lives We’re gonna figure it out We’re gonna figure it out We’re gonna figure it out We’re gonna figure it out

Stop picking at your scabs and let them heal Until you can’t remember how they feel Don’t let your heart bleed out don’t get stressed out Stop picking at your scabs and let them heal A positive outlook brings a positive outcome A positive outlook brings a positive outcome A positive outlook brings a positive outcome A positive outlook brings a positive outcome Give yourself the chance to heal Give yourself the chance to heal Give yourself the chance to heal Give yourself the chance to heal Did you ask forgiveness from yourself You beat yourself up when its not your fault Don’t you want to move on and leave the past behind Did you ask forgiveness from yourself A positive outlook brings a positive outcome A positive outlook brings a positive outcome A positive outlook brings a positive outcome A positive outlook brings a positive outcome Give yourself the chance to heal Give yourself the chance to heal Give yourself the chance to heal Give yourself the chance to heal Give yourself the chance to heal Give yourself the chance to heal Give yourself the chance to heal Give yourself the chance to heal

Another day passes and we stay in control Debt piles high, and we have bills to pay It could be worse even though our hands are empty Stick together and we get through the day We sweat, we bleed, to get what we need We got to keep going and stay up on our feet A time of innocence we all left behind A state of mind we all long to find We work and we push hard so we keep breathing Calloused hands keep us alive Pressure is put upon our shoulders The strength of our will is how we survive We sweat, we bleed, to get what we need We got to keep going and stay up on our feet A time of innocence we all left behind A state of mind we all long to find We wake up everyday and do what is needed But we know there’s more in our lives Smash the cymbals and crank the guitars This is how we know we’re alive We sweat, we bleed, to get what we need We got to keep going and stay up on our feet A time of innocence we all left behind A state of mind we all long to find

We all have our stresses and we all have our vices Everything we’re going through we need a way to fight it Our ears may ring we may lose our voice but its worth it in the end Because this is what we live for and we’re never gonna stop Putting it all out there on the strings and on the snares Dive bars and basements with punk rock in the air It doesn’t matter if its one or a thousand through the door Knowing that we're lucky matters more Thank you for being here Music takes away our fears And now you’re Not alone Thank you for being here Music takes away our fears And now you’re Not alone Punk rock brings us all together in our minds and in the room Whether you dancing or tapping your shoe And we’re here we’re doing this we’re thankful that you’re here You’re the ones that matter anyway Thank no you for being here Music takes away our fears And now you’re not alone Thank you for being here Music takes away our fears And now you’re not alone Need something to pick you up I know where you should go Maybe something’s got you down So head off to a show Need something to pick you up I know where you should go Maybe something’s got you down So head off to a show Need something to pick you up I know where you should go Maybe something’s got you down So head off to a show

We always know it will be alright We'll never go down without a fight We're hanging on now for dear life We’ll pull ourselves up with all our might We always know it will be alright We'll never go down without a fight We're hanging on now for dear life We’ll pull ourselves up with all our might We’re going home you can’t stop us now We’re moving on we’ll figure it out We’re staying strong you can’t knock us down We’ll use our voices and we’ll get real loud We always know it will be alright We'll never go down without a fight We're hanging on now for dear life We’ll pull ourselves up with all our might We’re pushing on and we can’t be stopped We’re never going to give it up We’re going to carry on no matter what We’re going to climb straight to the top At least we know when we grow old We’ll be proud of what we’ve done At least we know when our story’s told We won’t be afraid of anyone We always know it will be alright We'll never go down without a fight We're hanging on now for dear life We’ll pull ourselves up with all our might We always know it will be alright We'll never go down without a fight We're hanging on now for dear life We’ll pull ourselves up with all our might We will stay strong We will stay strong We will stay strong We will stay strong

I Feel You 04:51
I feel you now And I felt you yesterday At my side every step of the way I feel you now And I felt you yesterday I'm not gonna waste another day Hanging out at backyard BBQs Going out to baseball games We built this bond and you showed me the way These times together and what I remember You did everything that you could To make me the person that I am today I feel you now And I felt you yesterday At my side every step of the way I feel you now And I felt you yesterday I'm not gonna waste another day Taking the family on vacation Celebrating graduations These times are worth their weight in gold Watching football on the weekends Days I thought would never end You’re with me every step of the way I feel you now And I felt you yesterday At my side every step of the way I feel you now And I felt you yesterday I'm not gonna waste another day I feel you now I feel you now I feel you now I feel you now I feel you now I feel you now I feel you now And I felt you yesterday At my side every step of the way I feel you now And I felt you yesterday I'm not gonna waste another day I feel you now And I felt you yesterday At my side every step of the way I feel you now And I felt you yesterday I'm not gonna waste another day

about

We would like to thank all of our friends and family that have supported us over the years. The journey is long and ongoing, but you all continue to support us along the way and we owe you a great debt of gratitude . We would especially like to thank Mac McInerney for always being a part of the Hopeless Otis family, and for contributing to the writing process of this album. Some of these songs were written before, and some of these songs were written during the world being shut down. We hope these songs can help some of you get through tough times and maybe even make them a little bit better.
