I've lived in this town my whole life, walked these streets a thousand nights. Drunk with my friends & familiar strangers all on this sinking ship together. Talking about where it all went wrong, how we never thought we'd be here so long. Unemployed & unqualified for the lives we want to lead. Elsewhere, anywhere, is where I belong. Elsewhere, anywhere. We won't go down with this town. We won't go down, (Without a fight!) Sometimes a brave face is all you have. Fragile hopes hang high, but we hold them tight. They're all we have. Somethings never change, but here is where we'll take the stage. A testament to growing up but to never acting our age. We took the rule books that kept us here & tore out ever page straight from the seam. Fuck minimum wage we're out of here. To awake & fur fill our dreams. They're all we have. All we have.
Track Name: Face Value
You like to play pretend, for your place among the popular. You take more pride in your appearance, than in who you are. & you won't go outside, without a layer of cosmetic lies. You've been crossing the line between confidence boost & disguise. & I wonder! What is it you have to hide? Are you insecure or just fake inside? Are the rumours true, or is there more to you? What is it you have to hide? I saw something more when I looked in your eyes. Or was that just another lie. Beautiful as you are, you're just so popular, for all the wrong reasons. But was that always you? I've heard some good things too. Could I reach out & relate to you, How much has changed, how much is true? 'cause now you don't go outside, without a layer of cosmetic lies. You've been crossing the line between confidence boost & disguise.& I wonder! Wash away the lies, before they wash away what matters inside.
Track Name: Tunnel Vision
I tried my best but none the less fell short. I'm uninspired, fucking tired & I can take no more. The older I get the further my dreams get from me. But I won't let them go, I will not compromise my goals. So may my dream & I, never part. These are my words, this is my heart.
Track Name: True Worth
They said it would all be fine, but simply ignore me cries. No one cared enough to show it, when I fell apart inside. When it kicks you to the floor, when it rains it fucking pours. & from your first breath to your last, the cards you're dealt are all you fucking have. So maybe it's time I called it quits, the hand I was dealt's been torn to bits. & in this world of shit, I am pissing in the fucking wind. (So I'm) Accepting what I am not. To appreciate what I've got. I spilled my heart, shed my tears, in so many songs you'll never hear. To expel every single bitter syllable that found it's way to me. So to the songs I'll never finish, the words I never find. I'm done with over-thinking, I'm leaving all those worthless nights behind. Cause maybe it's time I called it quits, the plans I made were torn to bits.& in this world of shit I am pissing in the fucking wind. (So I'm) Accepting what I am not. To appreciate what I've got. All I ever wanted was to be in a band. But with age & time life seeks to change my plans. No-one every wanted this more than me. & in a world of disappointment this much I can guarantee. Just because some dreams were never meant to be, doesn't mean this matters any less, an less to me. I found the true worth in it all.
