"Reckless" as written by Kianna Alarid, Neely Jenkins, Jamie L Williams, Derek Pressnall and Nicholas White....
Oh reckless, a boy wonder, so quiet, nose broken
Oh, you're standing there, look tired as your singing
And you're on fire, they're throwing punches
So backwards the landscape you thought you knew, it starts unwinding

Now you're jumping through their hoops
You're just trying to dodge all their questions
They're shooting bullets
'Cause we all want to hear but you can't, you can't

And we all want to see but you don't, you don't
You are amazing
Oh the horses, suits and ties, they will not hesitate to trample
You keep moving, stop moving, it's the same

You know if it is broken they'll try to fix it
It's a shame that, did they get you? they got you
Yeah they might have
You keep covering their mouths, they keep on talking

The parade it is coming, I hear them marching
Case we all want to hear but you can't, you can't
And we all want to see but you don't, you don't
You are amazing

Yeah we all think we're right but we're wrong, we're wrong
And we all want to talk and we do, we do
They have convinced you
It's so shocking

You cheated your fate now, we can't read your face
You are gone

    General Commentwow. this song is amazing.

    "Oh reckless, a boy wonder, so quiet, nose broken
    Oh, you're standing there, look tired as you're singing
    And you're on fire, they're throwing punches
    So backwards, the landscape you thought you knew, it starts unwinding
    Now you're jumping through their hoops
    You're just trying to dodge all their questions
    They're shooting bullets"

    General CommentWhen I saw this band, they left us with this song. It really brings back a positive vibe in me whenever I listen to it now.
