Track Name: Bullies
Why must my mind go to these thoughts?
lose so much time wasted and caught
"better than you", to think that far, whether that's true
it's nowhere to start
tough hearts are there for taking
bullies will always try to manipulate the situation
belittle all those times you tried
don't let them make you feel bad
you're not so dead inside
believe in this, always be patient
no need to run and hide
as you roll you won't even notice
is that all? not so explosive
better than losing your roses
miss you friend
we'll always have the most hits
matters when the fear's the grossest
make amends broaden the coastless
Track Name: No One Knows This
no one seems to know this
though i keep imposing
lucky you've been chosen
hear incriminating
no more happy hours
no more time for flowers
take it and move ahead
repeating things that I've said
"No, I won't leave you behind,
don't leave my mind please don't leave my mind"
Sorry you had to see me in the baddest way
my mind can break from time to time and say things wrong
I know it's wrong, wrong, but i'll be strong
don't give up on me just yet please
Sorry for these words my mind can break from time to time
skewing translation and that's when they (words) leave my mind wrong
I know know it's wrong, wrong, but I'll be strong
don't give up on me just yet please
Track Name: Brand New Kind of Game
staying up all night
wasting time
on what could have been
caught on the line
just a poor guppy
pick yourself up
keep running
you'll be fine
better this time
keep on the light
you'll have some seasons to define
just empty your thoughts out to me
or keep them in
I'm still your friend till the end
now and then we're here to be
silhouettes inside this ever growing tree
brand new kind of game
I feel the same, i feel the same
brand new kind of game
I feel the same I feel the same
It's a brand new kind of game
it's not the same, it's not the same
It's a brand new kind of game
it's not the same, it's not the same
it's not the same, it's not the same, it's not the same
just empty your thoughts out to me
or keep them in
I'm still your friend till the end
Track Name: It's a principal
oh let me off
send them back they're dead
send them back they're dead
oh let's not talk
send them back they're dead
send they're back they're dead
it's a principal
it's so unusual
stand and prove your talk
or don't talk at all
Track Name: No One Cares
Silly worries,
not to mention
worlds away at war
pretty sure
my death is gonna be a fire
please tell me, please, not to burn
It's not that I'm crazy
maybe bored and lazy
whiny little baby
sort it with the sun
it's better when no one cares
Track Name: Simply put
publicly make a fool of myself, oh well
tragically it's not cool, I'm not cool, I'm in hell
so stop with the four leaf clover
stand up and just take it all over
banned from the drop
it's a lot to insist upon a crowd
it's too loud
just make it stop
then I'm reminded it's all fine
there's a time when your passion will be kind
and your ears and eyes and teeth and hands and then your mind
and then it's fine and if you die before then tell me tell me tell me
what you know, what's on your mind, tell me what you know, tell me what's on your mind
Track Name: inspire
it's insane how much you talk about yourself, oh well
non-descript antithesis a trip to port deserves a sell, do tell
piece all together with a memory that's hard to sell, you fell
anything you want is made in time for all the former shells, it's hard to tell
any time you feel this way just grab a handful of dirt, rub it in your eyes and say "oh this could be so much worse, much worse, much worse, hold me down" you're wrong! you're wrong! you're wrong! you're wrong!
failed attempts to lose your trail resulted in a dry run sell
so much for staying on my guard it gets hard to tell, oh well
it's better than losing your whole mind to, it's better than losing yourself in truth I've had a few. just a few.
any time you feel this way just grab a handful of dirt, rub it in your eyes and say "oh this could be so much worse, much worse, much worse, hold me down"
sold off, impossibilities conquered
don't scoff, this is how I move onward
more talk leads to waking up at your door
less shock might be better than what you heard
any time you feel this way just grab a handful of dirt, rub it in your eyes and say "oh this could be so much worse, much worse, much worse, hold me down" you're wrong! you're wrong! you're wrong! you're wrong!
Track Name: Tribute
My world is rotten
time has forgotten
my eyes and soul see you
and it won't matter much
yes I'm such a mutt
ruined your time and your mind
I'm not so kind
it's time you find
someone else who isn't blue
this is already passed due
we'll have no worries
so new
this is already passed due
I'm not so kind
it's time you find
someone else who isn't blue
and it won't matter much
yes i'm such a mutt
ruined your time and your mind
this is already passed due
we'll have no worries
so new
this is already passed due
I'm not so kind,
it's time you find
someone else
who isn't blue
Track Name: Countdown
standing silent, no heartbeat is next to mine
a countdown to the sun
such a wreck, deserve what I've come to
and I got lonely feeling shunned
Always bleakest when something new is done
take that weakness and countdown to the sun
forget about all that brings you down
accept that it is all but done
moving on is just the best thing for you
don't regret decisions won
Always bleakest when something new is done
take that weakness and countdown to the sun
Track Name: Understand
Broken bits of calmness fill my plan
and I hope you understand
Understand that it's not your fault
I'll take a walk to the sand where I'll find another fan
Borders still around, so what?
can't claim the ground, don't touch
Darkness stretch
the sun is up
brightest catch
it's not that much
since we met
this my rock
now I'm alone
I'll through this stone
down the road and passed the block
over the bridge
In the travel mode, feel lawless
without a home
we roam around
don't belong here anyway (anyway!)
Borders still around, so what?
can't claim the ground, don't touch
Track Name: I know I like(s) it (meadows)
Well it's not hard to see
we'll always need each other
let's bring our hearts to sea
then countdown to the summer
all signs point to you and me
in the sun
far from everyone
use your mind if you can
or keep it undercover
we'll live here
make new plans
instincts will lead another
all signs point to you and me
in the sun
far from everyone
believe it if you can
my thoughts are in the sand
you gotta know when
your thoughts are keeping you in doubt
let it all out, let it all out
I don't know what I see in you anymore
but I know I like(s) it
I know I like(s) it!
