Track Name: The Outsider
In my path, broke and bent,

the forest grows in innocence.

The fog will raise my foggy tries

to make amends, to make a friend.

Would you hear the noise if I fell?

Would anyone be here to tel,

or would I sit with my pride 

here on the outside?



I’m not your’s, I’m not!

I’m not your outsider!

I’m wasted now, I can’t come to.

Synthetic thoughts hold me from you.

The buried tries, and the buried cries

that I pretend will satisfy.

Can’t you tell that were all the same

and nothings fair, that we’re all insane?

We’re all a part of nature’s art; 
oh can’t you tell?

This ain’t a proud site here.

I’m not your outsider!



I’m not your’s, I’m not!

I’m not your outsider!

I’m not your’s, I’m not!

I’m not your outsider!

Would you hear the noise if I fell?

Would anyone be here to tell,
or would I sit with my fucking pride

here on the outside?
Track Name: Alibis
Can you beat me, until I’m gone?
Whatever happened to our purity and song?
Being reckless is our rule of thumb
but you’re the parasite that makes me hate my love.
We’re so high that our expiry date has come.

(Take)
You better take your time to
turn in your alibis.
(Take)
You better take your time to
turn in your alibis.

Have we lost it? No one is home.
Whatever separation flows behind these walls?
There’s no forgetting what we have become
when the monsters in our closets come undone.
We’re so high that our expiry date has come.

(Take)
You better take your time to
turn in your alibis.
(Take)
You better take your time to
turn in your alibis.

Take me away, take me away.
Don’t hesitate.
(Won’t you take)
Take me away; take me away
your majesty?

(Take)
You better take your time to
turn in your alibis.
(Take)
You better take your time to
turn in your alibis.
Track Name: Rewind!
Do you know anyone who needs me?
Do you know anyone who even cares?
I can’t stand the smirks of the people around me.
My heart hurts but you can’t make me leave my affairs.

Darling you must leave me here on my own this time,
The things in my head are still better for me to rewind.

Do you know anyone who reads me?
Can they feel the punk that I have become?
I can’t help the rebel inside that has drowned me.
No I won’t take your help, I would rather be numb.

Darling you must leave me here on my own this time,
The things in my head are still better for me to rewind.

Darling you must leave me here to die,
The things in my head are still better for me to rewind!
Track Name: Frame of Mind
It’s about time that you said it,

your diction’s hanging my fate.

But you shouldn’t take all of the credit,

doctor, there are lives at stake. (because we’re),

Cutting ties and waiting until the sun dies

we’re waiting for the weight.

Not a joke, not a lie.

Not a question in mind.

Come on pals we’re breaking out tonight,

it’s not a joke, not a lie.

Still I try, I try!

Wasting time with my friends,

yes the ones that you hate.

You try to say that they’re pretend,

but doctor I know that they’re fake (because we’re)

Getting high and waiting until the sun dies;

we’re waiting for the weight.

Not a joke, not a lie.

Not a question in mind.

So come on pals we’re breaking out tonight,

it’s not a joke, not a lie.

Getting high and waiting until the sun dies;

we’re waiting once again.
Not a joke, not a lie.

Not a question in mind.

Come on pals we’re breaking out tonight,

it’s not a joke, not a lie.

Not a joke, not a lie.

Not a joke, Not a…
Track Name: (Is That) What You Meant
You said follow your dreams.

Is that what you meant?

To follow this sensation
 was my intent.

Well look at me, I’m hanging on.

I won’t waste my life again.

Well look at me, I’m hanging on,

so hang on for your life my friends.

I’ll pack up all my things

and head off with the band;

I’ll take all of the winding roads 
to make my stand.

My stand in the bright lights;

help yourself to who I am.

“Follow your heart” that’s what they said.

“Follow your heart” that’s what they said.

“Follow your heart” that’s what they said.

“Follow your heart” or whatever they meant.

That ain’t how it works:

buy one get one free.

Yeah, the clock will tick, but 
it won’t stick to your beat.

Can you taste your happiness

through excitement or is it defeat?

“Follow your heart” that’s what they said.

“Follow your heart” that’s what they said.

“Follow your heart” that’s what they said. 

“Follow your heart” or whatever they meant.

I won’t run,

I won’t run from who I am!

I won’t run,

so help yourself to who I am!

“Follow your heart” that’s what they said. 

“Follow your heart” that’s what they said. 

“Follow your heart” that’s what they said.

“Follow your heart” or whatever they meant.

I don’t know if I’m gone or if I’ll go,

but I know that this is where I’m supposed to be.

I don’t know if I’m gone or if I’ll go
,
but I know that this is where I’m meant to be.

I don’t know if I’m gone or if I’ll go,

but I know that this is where I’m supposed to be.

I don’t know if I’m gone or if I’ll go
,
but I know that this is where I want to be.
