Track Name: Earning The Life
Suspended in pretense, from someone else whom we'd rather be
Our lives confined to your ideals of perfection, for the yearning to be the ones that we ought to be

So let's hold back to feel our worth, it's not as hard as it seems
Let's take a step backwards and trace ourselves back to the lines where it all begins

Just having to blend into a shade of colour of your perfect painted piece
Having to love oneself before another, we weren't born into this world for you to be pleased

I'm gonna bring it back, bring it back to you
Track Name: Now We Will
Crimson lights withered nights
Start contemplating thoughts in your mind
Shine your beacons of light
Reply my plight
Don't break another as we ponder through space and time
Our enigmatic fantasies come to life

Don't tell me that it's over
Contemplate your darkest hour

Now we will arise
Achieve the dreams we never realised
Stand tall
Don't fall back down
There's no reason to let shame save us from all

You showed me out the door
The same one you let me in
With turned your lights out
Caved my heart in
Your broke my plight
No point of another
Your narcissistic ways of life
It's about to being me all the way down

And down we fall
There's no turning back
Track Name: This Is A Callout To The World, Ooh, Ooh
This is our call out to the world that we knew
It's not for us to look back on, it's for you

For what am I to say
Is there any explanation for this, cause to feel insane
Every time you push me up the walls cuz

We've heard this all before
And we've seen it all and more
We're just trying to find our perfect score, but what for

For do we live has frauds
When conflicts grab you by the head
This is your personal war
Now's the time to prove your worth because
Track Name: The Funk Song
And as I stare at myself through a broken mirror
I watch as the shards fell down and watch my road slowly wither away
Deny these the words you say
We will find a way out

For what has this done to me?
Another picture of lessons I've learned through the times
We said we said we said we'd find a leeway out

You told me some truths and disguised them in lies
To point out to you
I played through your demise
Deny these the words you say
We will find a way out

I'm sick of this
It's time for you to go!!!
Track Name: Flights Of Fancy
Sit with me
Come and play
I need you so near
Stay a while for a day, maybe two
Have no fear
What I am is not all good
It's okay; time has come
Wish we could get it back
It's too late

And I miss you the most

Sing to me once again in your room like old days
Speak to me
It depends on how you do in all ways
Bring me back little smiles
Funny ways you speak to me
Bring me back all your wiles
Whimsical fancies
Track Name: BACKWARDS
I'm not alone, not anymore
And I am sure that I loved you but right now
I am feeling the stretch imprints of your hands are still on my neck
Even though it's been so long
Can't believe I'm still holding on

And we're holding around and around and yeah
And I'm losing I'm losing and I'm losing I'm losing you

And although I miss all that we had
And some memories will still bring me back I know now
That I want more than you could ever give me so I'm okay that we're going around and around and yeah

I'm through with all the memories wasted
I'll leave them all behind
This world is so much more than us with you I was so blind
I've loved you all my years before I'll love you all my years alike
But hope has got me moving on hope has got me moving

And I will see you
I never want this to end
Track Name: Semi-Circle Punch
Just close your eyes and don't be weary
This violence will seep in through before you know we'll be done.
Put our innocence through the frontlines
But soon enough you'll realise what's left is gone and broken into two

And maybe just maybe, we'll see this through to you

This is the last thing left for you
From start to end we'll follow through

So now it's time to pick up the wreckage
Of strewn broken hearts and missing parts of themselves
To help them find a way through with guidance
Is the only way for them to find a new day, so
Track Name: Contra
Could there be something missing inside of our hearts
We’ve got our hands joined together but through the distance we part
Is there so much more we should know
It’s been so long feels like I’m letting go
Actions speak louder than words it’s time to let it show

For always I will be right with you
I’ll keep you close inside my mind
For when the letdown seems too much for you
Will you choose to run and hide?

Can anyone else out there feel me?
Can anyone else out there hear me?
It’s been so long feels like I’m letting go

Actions speak louder than words it’s time to let it show
Track Name: Your Time Is Over, Our Time Is Now
There's something wrong something serious
Something more than just the weather
There's no call, there is no precedent, what's going on?
When it gets too familiar, it's time to tell me who made you God
When it gets too familiar, we'll make it stop

And I'll try to say I miss you when you are gone
Fist up to the ceiling
And I'll try to say I miss you when you are gone
Now that you are leaving

Sick of all that you are giving us
Sick of all the warmongering
There's no call; it's ridiculous.
"What's going on?"
When it seems that it's troubling, it's time to say what you always thought
So hold your head up, keep listening
We'll make it stop
Where do we go?
Track Name: Trees
Let it be known to all the people, the change you made in our lives
And slowly we’ll sink to remember, your stories told through time
Comfort me, My soul lies in a deep arrest
I’ll break free, And I’ll take you there and I’ll take you there when it’s time to

Follow me
And I’ll break free

Can we fight to keep away, keep the storms in our hearts at bay
Through division we’ll come to fall, So unite till it’s over
Could there be anything more to this, When sorrows eat away at bliss
It’s getting harder for us to miss, the attention blows over
Comfort me, My soul lies in a deep arrest
I’ll break free, And I’ll take you there and I’ll take you there when it’s time to

Follow me
And I’ll break free
Track Name: DKNY
Verse:
So let's take some time to try to figure this out
Pin point our faults and solve them all before we go through a bout
Another round through some sounds we can do without
Let's shout it out now because you know you're..

Chorus:
Everything woah-oh-oh so come on we'll say
That you're everything woah-oh-oh and all that i want is i want you!
I wanna be a part of everything you're giving to me
A funny little kind of feeling and i hope that you see
That i'll do anything so you're never feeling down

Verse:
And just when the situation starts to turn around
We'll realize there was nothing to quarrel about
So let's kiss and make up girl
You know what it's all about

Let's shout it out now cause' you know you're

Chorus:
Everything woah-oh-oh so come on we'll say
That you're everything woah-oh-oh and all that i want is i want you!
I wanna be a part of everything you're giving to me
A funny little kind of feeling and i hope that you see
That i'll do anything so you're never feeling down

Bridge:
Let's get over it(x8)

Last Chorus:
Your smile keeps me up for days(x8)
Track Name: Beautiful Green Beast
We are torn away from translation from the youth we choose to be
Our vices, burnt desires, remnants of ashes we're left you'll see
Skin and bones consumed by the fires of undying apathy
Do we choose to be found or to be lost in this worthless commodity?

We'll send all caution to the wind
Let's take control over our whims
Our selfish deconstruction don't pull the plug
This is your sin
Cuz we'll never stop till we win
All the dreams we have will begin to come true

We're sick of ignorance and our own apathy
Sick of I-don't-knows and I-don't-cares is this all we can be
Greater than this come together in our hope and unity
Inspiration, motivation and the willpower to achieve

We're not the same but there's more to us than you know
(Oh so let's gom cuz we are the future today)
