Heart 01:02
With saddest music all day long She soothed her secret sorrow At night she sighed "I fear 'twas wrong Such cheerful words to borrow. Dearest, a sweeter, sadder song I'll sing to thee to-morrow."

Do you need me I've got number 1-5-3 on my back Do you need me Cause don't think I won't fight back Isn't that so Typical of you Take this number off me Let me be my own Let me be free Oh I hope Oh I hope Oh I hope That you can hear me Do you fear me Driving hooks into your spine Do you fear me Play the little game of mine Take this number off me Let me be my own Let me be free Oh I hope Oh I hope Oh I hope That you can hear me Oh, can't you hear me Oh, can't you hear me Oh, can't you hear me

5 million and one BC According to archeology A meteorite hit earth, killed dinosaurs and caused the world to freeze England, 15th century Now rulled under the matriarchy Ironic a gals in charge The rest are treat like... I'm stuck between the lines Of spiral notebook paper I'll copy answers Class isn't worth my time Give me a textbook I'll fill the pages that are blank Repeating histroy The joke of human kind Oh, what a shame It looks like we won't corrected Guess that we're all to blame Empty nothings born from habit Hopes for something better than this Drop everything run while you can Carry on, carry on I'm choose to break out from The medicority of this Excuse of human worth I won't be a statistic I plan to leave my mark Give something to inspire them The people of this earth Or anyone who cares Look at that face I think they might have been insulted Guess that they know their place Empty nothings born from habit Hopes for something better than this Drop everything run while you can Carry on, carry on I refuse to crumble under All the expectations that were Set upon by those onlookers Give me space, give me space 5 million and one A.D. Who knows what the story then will be Will humans still be around or will our species have fallen down

Throw Away 03:45
spend my time I couldn't throw away for you Got my pride little things you could abuse I'll break you to pieces Mirror bits shattered on the floor Soul of stone Break my paper heard in two Crack my bones Bake bread to feed the likes of you Its so cold What'll I do I guess that its up to you Well I don't make much sense You're ambivlance and your self indulgence make it clear that you're lost and you're so afraid But I can't say I care Cause this is your mess that you made (I'm sorry) I'm sorry won't cut it You're not worth forgiveness anymore I hope you're happy, you can spend the rest of your miserable life curled up crying on the floor

Maybe I should feel so lucky Maybe all this time I wasn't missing Maybe I can just stay lonely I promise I can try but I hate this feeling inside Someday I may find my only Someday it could be more than I hoped for Someday I might be so happy I'll wait until that day, but I've waited so long Keep me down and keep me quiet Wasn't that the plan you had all along Think again I'll make you regret You chained me to fucking wall, I'll smash it down and make you fall Its needles on tile that make you feel better. But it doesn't look like they'll help now Don't you come near me Don't you come near me

Monster 04:11
Its been long since that day You got down on your knees and prayed You waited for the time to come I wonder where we went all wrong The monster's here Don't look inside me Don't look inside me The monster's near I feel it on me I feel it on me The spider legs rise from the sea Its eye will see the world that be Its mile steps bring it to shore To look where earth has left no more Oceans turned to acid baths Green fields become dead paths Power struggles make for sad endings No grave stones, no more homes No history books, no tomes It'll stand guard for the dying world The monster's here Don't look inside me Don't look inside me The monster's near I feel it on me I feel it on me

The Tourist 04:18
Were it up to me I wouldn't be abused You wanna shut me out I haven't much to lose You wanna keep my down that's fine Just make sure to keep me alive Kinda like a tourist in your mind I hope you know what you're looking to find I don't think you like what you see inside me I don't think you like what you see inside me I don't feel at home I don't feel at home Take myself away from here I can only hope my mind is clear Still a little boy Or when did you get old I don't have time for games The world outside is cold I wanna place where I belong Where I'm not told my life is wrong But even if a place were to exist Would all these problems avoided be fixed I'll find a place to go where you can't follow I'll find a place to go where you can't follow I don't feel at home I don't feel at home Take myself away from here I can only hope my mind is clear I don't feel at home I don't feel at home Take me away from here Somewhere where my mind can be clear

Superhuman 03:56
Get up, suit up, you're alive Time to work from 9 to 5 Gotta bring the bread home to the mouths you feed Break out of the ordinary Save the day and be the one to get your name on screen You can be one of the cogs Keep in line and make sure Everything can run on time Or are you a superhuman? Giving all you got those who Never give you piece of mind Oh I hope that you can make it past their laser eyes You don't know what its like Do I envy you? You mope and want to trade me places Even though I've never been your kind Just keep working day to day I don't know a safer way I'll persue my ambitions when I have time I just can't take all the pressure. I can't take a breath from the Confusion and I can't escape No one understands my struggle No one can connect with me I Feel so lost I just... But I can't help but feel we're just the same. Different paths, different lives, names. I just wish it was more clear I just want to be right here Oh I hope that you can make it past their laser eyes You don't know what its like Do I envy you? You mope and want to trade me places Even though I've never been your kind

Run away, don't catch me in here Stay awake, its dreams that I fear Got a tiger by the tail And you wonder why I call it hell Keep your mouth shut, let me finish You suffocate me like goldfish I'd rather you just break my bones I'm sick and tired of feeling alone Minutes, Hours; what's the difference Its always waiting from the absence All the best will come in time But even those words can't ease my mind Who believes in glittered logic The very thing that makes a heart sick Just listen to a honest voice Won't you believe its not by choice Why even try; You always leave me alone. You'd hear me cry; You always leave me alone.

Yellow World 03:21
I wanna be happy Try to be the one to follow you Planning is broken Makes this yellow world turn blue Its tunnel vision, ecstasy Self indulgent rays of light It always feels like nothing, Nothing, nothing. And by my side, I'll never let go In this yellow world And by my side, we'll never let go In this yellow world of ours We'll just watch the yellow sunrise We'll just watch the yellow sunrise
