all in 05:13
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

wonderful (free) 03:20
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

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

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

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

she said 04:51
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

everything 03:58
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

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
9.
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
10.
as you are 04:13
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
