POWER, WISDOM, COURAGE

TIME TO FINISH THIS NEVER ENDING STORY
FOR AN INDUSTRY THAT TRIES TO CONTROL ME
YOU ALL HAVE NO IDEA
YOU’RE ALL CONSUMED BY FEAR
JUST PLAYING GUESSES AS YOU GO
GIVING ADVICE ON THINGS YOU DON'T KNOW
WELL FUCK YOUR OPINION, I’LL SAY YES WHILE YOU SAY NO
WELL NOT A SINGLE ONE OF YOU HAS EVER MADE ANYTHING OF YOURSELVES
BUT YOU’LL PASS ADVICE LIKE YOU THINK YOUR OWN SHIT ACTUALLY SELLS
I'M SURE YOU THINK THAT BECAUSE YOU’VE BOOKED SOME BANDS
THAT YOU HAVE SOME SORT OF RIGHT TO FUCK WITH MY PLANS
PUSH THROUGH I’M LET DOWN AGAIN
JUST ONE MORE FAKE-ASS FRIEND
SIX MONTHS WASTED, TRY TO GET MY FUCKING HEAD TO MEND
ALL I WANT IS A TASTE OF SUCCESS, I GET STRESSED, REPRESSED
DO IT FOR THE LOVE TO GET THIS SHIT OFF MY CHEST.

WHAT’S THIS? ROUND TWO?
NOTHING YOU SAID IS TRUE
SMALL TOWN IDEAS IT’S ALL THE SAME THERE’S NEVER ANYTHING NEW
IN AN OVER SATURATED WORLD, NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO GET YOUR VOICE HEARD
IS THERE SOMETHING YOU’D PREFER? SEE, I DO ME IT’S NOT YOUR TURN.
OH, SNAP!
DID THAT GET YOUR ATTENTION?
WOULD YOU FEEL BETTER IF I HAPPENED TO FORGET TO MENTION...
YOU SUCK!

GIVE IT ALL THAT I’VE GOT, NOTHING I’M NOT
STAB TO THE BACK I GUESS YOU FORGOT
YOU PRAY ON THE WEAK NOT FOR US
NOW TALK, TRY NOT TO BORE US
I BUILD IT UP, YOU TEAR IT DOWN
YOU ACT SO PROUD, YOU TALK SO LOUD
ACT LIKE YOU ARE FLAWLESS, AS YOU FALL ENJOY THIS SOUND.

REMEMBER MY NAME
FUCK ALL YOUR MONEY AND YOUR FAME
I REFUSE TO REGRET, FORGET EVERYTHING YOU SAID
THROUGH ALL THE STRUGGLE AND THE PAIN.

AS YOU FALL, ENJOY THIS SOUND.
Track Name: Do no wrong, take no shit
DO NO WRONG, TAKE NO SHIT

TWO YEARS IN THE MAKING
PULLED APART AT THE SEAMS
FRIENDS CONSPIRE AGAINST YOU
THE TRUST IS GONE BUT NOT THE DREAM
ALL IT TOOK WAS TO KEEP YOUR WORD
TURNS OUT EVEN YOU CAN SURPRISE
BUILT AN ARMY AROUND YOU
A SAFETY NET, A WEB OF LIES.

I’D KEEP MY HEAD DOWN IF I WAS YOU
CHOOSE TO KEEP THIS UP OR BITE YOUR TONGUE
TO YOU THIS IS JUST A GAME, SOMETHING TO DO, A BIT OF FUN
EVERY ACTIONS HAS A REACTION
I NEVER WAS THE ONE.

SHALL WE DISCUSS THE WAY YOU CHANGE THE GAME AS WE GO
OR THE WAY YOU ALWAYS THINK THE RULES ARE ALWAYS KNOWN
REPEAT IT TO CONVINCE YOURSELF
‘I’LL JUST SMILE AND SIT ON MY THRONE’
OR THE WAY WE’RE PLAYED AGAINST EACH OTHER
THE SO CALLED LEADER OF THIS HOME.

ONE THING IS SURE
YOUR LIES WILL COME BACK TO HAUNT YOU
ONE DAY I WILL WEAR THAT CROWN
WHY PRETEND YOU DON’T KNOW
THAT NEPOTISM RUNS THIS TOWN.

DO NO WRONG, TAKE NO SHIT (NEPOTISM RUNS THIS TOWN)
PLEASE TAKE MY HAND (YOU’RE HAPPY TO WATCH ME DROWN)
LET’S GET OFF THIS SINKING SHIP (DON'T HESITATE, THE TIME IS NOW)
AND ONTO DRY LAND (SO RAISE YOUR VOICE AND MAKE A SOUND)

RAISE YOUR VOICE AND MAKE A SOUND.
Track Name: Deadbeat town
DEADBEAT TOWN

I'M COMING BACK TO WHAT I ONCE CALLED MY HOME TOWN
I CAN SEE STRAIGHT UP
THE REASONS WHY I HAD TO RUN AWAY
EVERYTHING HERE IS COLD AND GREY
RUNNING LATE AND UNDERPAID I DON'T KNOW HOW I EVEN STAYED A DAY
THE PEOPLE ARE RESERVED, FACED BLURRED
THE WAY THEY OPERATE IS JUST ABSURD
LIKE HAMSTERS ON A WHEEL UNABLE TO FEEL
FIGHTING FOR THEIR NEXT MEAL

SO THAT’S IT, YOU REALLY LET THIS TOWN
SINK IT’S TEETH IN YOU.

DEADBEAT TOWN
ANOTHER SOUL TO STEAL, ANOTHER WAY TO FEEL.
DEADBEAT TOWN
DEADBEAT TOWN
SELL IT TO THE DEVIL, MAKE A DEAL.

THE TRUTH IS EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS A LIE
YOU PEOPLE ARE BRED TO GROW AND DESPISE
YOU'VE GIVEN UP THE FIGHT
EVERYTHING IT TOUCHES DIES INSIDE
ONLY SO MANY TIMES YOU CAN DRY YOUR EYES
BUT FOR ALL THAT IT'S WORTH
FOR BETTER OR WORSE
I BELIEVE IN MYSELF, THAT PLACE IS A CURSE
A TOWN BUILT FROM NOTHING
YOU PEOPLE ARE DISGUSTING
RUN WHILE YOU STILL CAN
YOU'RE JUST A PUPPET ON A STRING

THIS TOWN’S BUILT FROM NOTHING
YOU PEOPLE ARE DISGUSTING
RUN WHILE YOU STILL CAN
YOU’RE JUST A PUPPET ON A STRING
Track Name: Take me away
TAKE ME AWAY

A RELATIONSHIP
SPIRALING OUT OF CONTROL
IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE.

WE TAKE IT IN TURNS TO TURN UP THE HEAT
SEEING JUST HOW FAR WE’LL GO
WE PLAY THIS GAME DAY IN DAY OUT
HOPING NOBODY ELSE WILL EVER KNOW.

TAKE ME AWAY
AND SAVE ME
I CANT FIGHT YOU ANYMORE
TAKE ME AWAY
AND BREAK ME
YOU LEAVE ME WANTING SO MUCH... MORE.

JUST IMAGINE FOR A SECOND
THAT YOU REALLY CARED
WILL YOU STILL BE THERE WHEN THE LUST HAS CLEARED?
WE HAVE TO TRY SO HARD
JUST TO FIGHT WHAT WE REALLY WANT
DO YOU TELL HIM THAT YOU LOVE HIM?
LIKE YOU SHOW ME EVERY SINGLE DAY
SHOULD WE PAY THE PRICE, HAVE THE STRENGTH TO RUN AWAY.

FALLING FROM GRACE
THE GUILT STARTS TO RISE
NOW IS OUR CURTAIN CALL
LOVE, OR DESPISE.

TAKE ME AWAY
AND SAVE ME.
Track Name: ''Call the shots''
''CALL THE SHOTS''

EVERYBODY IN HERE SCREAMS
‘START THE PARTY!’
DO YOU KNOW JUST HOW MUCH I DRINK?
I’D LOVE ONE DAY WHERE I CAN ESCAPE THE PATTERN
STAY AWAY FROM OTHERS AND MY BRAIN DON’T SHRINK
IT’S LIKE NO MATTER WHAT I DO, MY LIFE BELONGS TO YOU
YES, PARTY SHE’S A PRINCESS, SHE’S A FUCKING MISTRESS
PULL ME DOWN COMPLETELY POUR ME ANOTHER...

BUT I CAN’T TAKE THIS, ANYMORE.

I’VE HAD ENOUGH
DRINKING TOO MUCH
IT’S TIME I CALLED THE SHOTS
THIS ATTITUDE HAS GOT TO STOP
PUSHING ME TO A POINT OF TOTAL DESPAIR
YOU’RE PULLING AT MY HEART STRINGS, I’M PULLING OUT MY HAIR
WE NEED TO TAKE IT ALL BACK TO SQUARE ONE
BEFORE I FORGET HOW TO CARE

FOCUS NEEDS TO BE ON MY LOVED ONES, MY CAREER, MY MUSIC TOO
WHY DO I SPEND MY TIME AND MONEY, THINKING THAT I’M FUNNY
LISTEN TO YOURSELF, YOU KNOW IT’S TRUE
I FEEL LIKE IT’S NOT POSSIBLE, SOMETIMES NOT EVEN LIKELY
THAT I’LL CHANGE MY WAYS, LIVE THROUGH THIS HAZE,
FIND A BALANCE, I THINK IT’S TRUE.

BUT FIRST ANOTHER NIGHT, SLEEPING ON THE FLOOR.

THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN
YOU BURN THE CANDLE AT BOTH ENDS
THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN
YOU HAVE THE WRONG FRIENDS
THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN
YOU BURN THE CANDLE AT BOTH ENDS, YEAH.
THIS IS WHAT I GOT WHEN I BURNT THE CANDLE AT BOTH ENDS
THIS IS WHAT I GOT WHEN I HAD THE WRONG FRIENDS
THIS IS WHAT I GOT WHEN I BURNT THE CANDLE AT BOTH ENDS
YEAH THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN...

AND THAT’S WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU BURN THE CANDLE AT BOTH ENDS
IT’S JUST A GOOD JOB NOW THEN, I HAVE THE RIGHT FRIENDS.
Track Name: Poser
POSER

KEEP TALKING IN DETAIL
OF ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU'VE DONE
AND YOU BELIEVE YOURSELF
DON'T GET ME WRONG IT SOUNDS FUN
BUT YOU HAVE THIS IMPULSE
TO LIE AT EVERY TURN
AND DROP PILLS LIKE THEY'RE CANDY
GET READY TO WATCH THE WORLD BURN

SO LET'S WATCH THE WORLD BURN
SO LET'S WATCH THE WORLD BURN

THERE'S NO NEED TO DO THIS
I'M AS STRAIGHT TALKING AS THEY COME
SO TRY AND TAKE A STEP BACK
STOP TRYING TO BE SOMEONE
FORGIVE ME WHILST I POLITELY
DESTROY EVERYTHING YOU'VE EVER LOVED

THEY SAY FIND WHAT YOU LOVE AND LET IT KILL YOU
EASY TO MAKE DECISIONS WHEN YOU DON'T SEE THE PAIN THAT THEY BRING
SO LETS WATCH THE WORLD BURN
SO LETS WATCH THE WORLD...

I ALWAYS TRY MY BEST TO WORK IT OUT
REACH OUT A HELPING HAND
WASTE MY TIME TURN ME DOWN
IN THE END THOUGH, IT'S YOU WHO LOOKS THE FOOL
YOU DON'T PUT IN THE WORK, YOU JUST BLAME YOUR TOOLS
FORGIVE ME WHILST I POLITELY
DESTROY EVERYTHING YOU'VE EVER LOVED

THEY SAY FIND WHAT YOU LOVE AND LET IT KILL YOU
EASY TO MAKE DECISIONS WHEN YOU DON'T SEE THE PAIN THEY BRING

SO HERE'S TO HOPING
I REALLY DO WANT THE BEST FOR YOU
SO HERE'S TO WORKING
NOTHING COMES FROM NOTHING
STAY TRUE

NOTHING COMES FROM NOTHING
SO LET'S WATCH THE WORLD BURN
Track Name: Mr. Misfortune
MR. MISFORTUNE

LETS GO!
THE DAYS GET SHORTER I FALL INTO THAT SAME OLD STUPID PATTERN
I GUESS IT'S JUST THE WAY MY HEADS WIRED, IT HAS TO CAUSE HAVOC
'CAUSE DAY AFTER DAY IS SPENT GETTING BEAT DOWN OUT OF HABIT
CONSTANTLY WONDERING WHY MY LIFE IS DESIGNED TO BE THIS TRAGIC
IT ALL STARTED WHEN WHAT I DO FOR A LIVING DECIDED TO BITE BACK
FEELING MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY UNDER ATTACK
SO I SPENT THE NEXT TWO WEEKS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING NEW
TIME TO CHANGE AGAIN, I'M DONE WITH THIS, I'M THROUGH.

THE THINGS IS PEOPLE ONLY LOOKING OUT FOR NUMBER ONE
THEY JUST WANNA TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN
FOR SOME PEOPLE IT'S JUST THERE IDEA OF FUN
WELL TO ME IT'S DUMB
THE WORLDS ALREADY TOO COLD
AND EVERYBODY IN IT'S NUMB

WELL THEY CALL ME MR. MISFORTUNE
JUST ANOTHER MISERABLE GUY
SOMEONE ELSE WHO'S LEARNT TO SMILE THROUGH IT ALL
NEVER BACK DOWN, NEVER AFRAID TO ASK WHY
BUT I REFUSE TO BOW TO YOUR TORMENT
I REFUSE TO COME SECOND PLACE
I'LL FIGHT UNTIL MY LAST BREATH
WELL JUST BECAUSE YOU SAY SO DOESN'T MEAN I'LL BE ERASED

SO I THREW ALL CAUTION TO THE WIND
GAVE IT ALL UP TO AVOID THAT FEELING OF BEING PINNED, DOWN
TO SOMETHING EVERY DAY I'M LEARNING TO HATE
SO THEY GAVE ME A PLACE, AND A TIME AND A DATE
WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW THEN IS THAT THEY REFUSED TO TELL ME THE WHOLE TRUTH
I TRIED TO FIGHT IT BUT AT THAT POINT I HAD NO PROOF
NOW I'M IN DEBT, MY MENTAL HEALTH'S AT ROCK BOTTOM
MY HEAD IS DISEASED, MY BODY IS ROTTEN

WELL I REFUSE TO COME SECOND PLACE...
JUST BECAUSE YOU SAY SO DOESN'T MEAN I'LL BE ERASED.
