Track Name: if there was...
beginning to feel
like a part of history
crowning of Kings
creating a mystery
ye, we understand
we don't have a shout

we pick all the pieces
and squeeze them to fit
missed opportunities
and all of them regrets
eager to learn
but with wisdom comes doubt

you're damned if you do & you're damned if you don't

a taste in the mouth
from licking the powers that be
not taking chances
utter complacency
we wont be judged
of this we've no doubts

you're damned if you do & you're damned if you don't

if there was a God
I wore him out

i'm sorry
we are a part
but we don't belong here
we are a part
but we don't belong here

a fatal blow
for the innocent
the takers of
what's beautiful

they'll lay you down
they'll pick you up
they'll be the ones
to fuck you up
so we'll leave today
we'll leave today

if there was a God
I wore him out
if there was a God
I wore him out
Track Name: your silence, my ego
if you could see me now
you would hide your face
and walk on by
you wont see me cry
the perfect ending is a quick goodbye

when you were lying before me
when your lips were saying something
i was not there, i wasn't listening
i had one thing on my
dirty mind

i barely even know your name

i'm a hypocritiacal whore
reluctant to settle old scores
with an ever decreasing mind
the over indulgent kind

when you were lying before me
when your lips were saying something
i was not there, i wasn't listening
i had one thing on my
dirty mind

i barely even know your name

your silence, my ego
your silent lips upon this
your silence, my ego
your lips upon this
Track Name: all in
All for the love of this

I'm beginning to wonder
Can you see it?
I can't see it
Can you feel it?
I can feel it

All for the love of this

Say what you feel

You're seeking revenge
For been born
A common mistake
We're all guilty of
I'd rather enter the tomb
Than go back
Back to where it started from

We're All In
All in, all in
and we feel it

Seeking some "likes" to be adored
A common mistake
We're all guilty of
It's killing our minds, bodies & our souls

We're All In
All in, all in
and we feel it
Track Name: as you are
all these changes are destined for
greater complications so,
get up and run
don't give your dreams up
they served you well
take your place
and live to tell

you stay, as you are
if only you could see how wonderful you are

don't make sense of what you do
exaggerate and things come true
don't believe my soul

problems tend to stay a while
fool them curse them
they'll die with time
promise them, you'll never look back
save your strength for another attack

you stay, as you are
if only you could see how wonderful you are

if they control me
they own me
you need to light up each channel
now with feeling
you'll see it, so

you stay, as you are
if only you could see how wonderful you are
Track Name: fallen angels, stoned & drunk
here's the plan
you cling to something
until it passes
and fades to nothing
a foetal position
safe & secure
until that thought comes
to kill you some more

but who will you call?
when this comes around
when all this calms down

there's a place a place
where fallen angels
are stoned & drunk
with featured artists
all day long
one by one they curse
whats done
as they suffer nostalgia

how could this be real

i stalled here for a while
to face a bird shaped cloud in the sky
she said this is not for real

fallen angel on a cold cold pillow

how could this be real
did i not understand you

someone told you
it would be better than it really is
than it really is
someone rushed you, you fought a good fight
but it's time to give in, time to give in

how could this be real
did i not understand you
Track Name: she said
fear makes me hungry for this
i'll still come to you
for the thrill

"i got a house in the city" she said
"my girlfriend's so pretty" she said
"lots of laughter with friends" she said
"the kind of friends i'd die for" she said
"i'm gonna stay, in the state i'm currently in"

think i've found the right girl to break
think she likes me,
she's not fake

"i got a house in the city" she said
"my girlfriend's so pretty" she said
"lots of laughter with friends" she said
"the kind of friends i'd die for" she said
"i'm gonna stay, in the state i'm currently in"

I wont open my eyes
i'm too busy dreaming
true friends have passed by
but i was still dreaming

when i look around me
only fools seem to lead me astray
Track Name: when it all comes down
another servant for another pleb
when it all comes down you'll understand why

I haven't seen you for a while
I hadn't time

another wasted season
another waste of time
when it all comes down you'll understand why
another pointless genius
for another sacrifice
when it all comes down you'll understand why

I haven't seen you for a while
I hadn't time

hope and prayer
it's so last season
befriend the man
who becomes the reason
a worthless fight
cause God's not so pleasing
let's hope today
becomes more appealing

I haven't seen you for a while
I hadn't time

come this way, (you need to give up)
what's here to stay for (you need to let go)
a corruption of sorts
it's tearing us a part

calm it down (you need to give up)
we'll leave by the side door (you need to let go)
& never return or we face the consequence

I haven't seen you for a while
I hadn't time
Track Name: everything
Think I’ll move over
Move to the colder part of your bed
It’s hard to concentrate
When there’s a lot of things going on in your head
I’ll stand by you
But you have to listen to the things that I’ve said

Hold on there’s no-one you need to impress
Could’ve sealed the deal-but gave it a miss
There’s no-one you need to impress

You have
Everything you need here
Everything you need here
Everything you need

The whole world welcomes you
With arms open wide
You know you’ll always have the doubters girl
Just brush them aside
Hypocritical parasites
Just feeding off your fear
There’s a runway too your freedom
You know I’ll be here
You see everyone is humming
But no one wants to sing
You gotta hang out your feelings for everyone to see
If there’s a crack in your armour
Who cares about that
So take your heart out of your head girl
You know I’ve got your back

You’ve got
Everything here
Track Name: a festival of colours
i see you
at the bottom of a lake
and now you're through
no more pain for us to go through

a festival of colours
is needed in the air
the walk of a skanger
he dont really care
the cheek of a scumbag
going through your home
he talks to the devil
cause no God roams

i see you
at the bottom of a lake
i'm happy for you
cause you know how much i hate

a festival of colours
is needed in the air
the walk of a skanger
he dont really care
the cheek of a scumbag
going through your home
he talks to the devil
cause no God roams

are we ever gonna learn
Track Name: someone, somewhere (remix)
I really need to get out of here
She said Someone, somewhere, take me home
i'm gonna stay here a while
gonna hope someone will use me
stay for a while,
which one of you would like to take me

someone, somewhere

Just wanna ride
For the night
I wanna hide from your eyes
Someone, somewhere, take me home

Don't wanna talk
Just wanna feel
Loves not part
Of this deal
Someone, somewhere, take me home

It pleases me
Just for a while
Blocking out
My inner child
Someone, somewhere, take me home
Track Name: wonderful
when the elevator stops
on the other side
we gotta
suck it in
Mary went through to the other world
and we're still grieving

don't wanna be alone
on the other side
better get praying
cause mother read the catholic bible
it told her, everything

they say the other side is wonderful
we're told the other side is wonderful

so it's a beautiful place on the other side
they'll be no negative things
mother tries to keep the tears from your eyes
but in the end, there's surely nothing
it's sickening to think
mother broke a fortune cookie it told her
everything
