Track Name: Echo
I can't feel the change of the seasons.
Echoes of the lies behind your reasons.

I can't change my choices.
I can't find these made up roses.

What made us so evil sick and twisted?
Don't close your eyes,
If you blink too slow you'll miss it.

I can't change my choices.
I can't find these made up roses.
Track Name: Sad Sack
I tried so hard to make amends
But you're to caught in your own head my friend.
Your ways will stay the same I'm sure
But I slammed shut and locked the door.

Ho, I'm so weak and weary.
This has gone on for too long.
No, something's got to change here.
Don't come crawling back for more.
Crawling back for more.

Too bad I listened to my mind
You're just so pushy all; the fucking time.
It's time to pack your bags and go
The time has come to pull the plug on this show.

Ho, I'm so weak and weary.
This has gone on for too long.
No, something's got to change here.
Don't come crawling back for more.
Crawling back for more.
Track Name: Weekend At Kenny's
And am I to know what is truth and what is a lie
Masquerading as a faithful enterprise.
Days to weeks, weeks to years;
Capitalising on our fears.
Falling like our children and women's tears.

I won't stand down, I will stand my ground.
Why can't you see this matters to me.

You disauthorised protest. Saying it's for the best.
Well, clearly we've failed your obedience test.
We've all been grouped as one,
Our personalities gone.
Gazing blindly up at the sun.

You can't alight our human rights.
It's time be all that we could be.

When your world falls down
Our feet will be planted on the ground.

This is our chance, set us free.
Track Name: Take It All Back
I was young when I fell in love with you.
Being smart is something I never claimed to do.
I thought you were wise and in my eyes
You were everything, you were my everything.

Take it all, take it all back now.
Cause every time, every time I'm broken
You come along, you come along and read me
Read me, read me like I'm open.
I'll take it all take it all back now.
Cause every time, every time I fall down
You come along, you come along and watch me
Watch me, you watch me bleed out.

I remember when you told me
How good the change in me would be.
I was young and I was dumb;
You were everything, you were my everything.

Take it all, take it all back now.
Cause every time, every time I'm broken
You come along, you come along and read me
Read me, read me like I'm open.
I'll take it all take it all back now.
Cause every time, every time I fall down
You come along, you come along and watch me
Watch me, you watch me bleed out.

I see it all, I see it all clear now.
Every time, Every time I fell down
You were there, you were there to push me
Push me closer to the ground.


Take it all, take it all back now.
Cause every time, every time I'm broken
You come along, you come along and read me
Read me, read me like I'm open.
I'll take it all take it all back now.
Cause every time, every time I fall down
You come along, you come along and watch me
Watch me, you watch me bleed out.

I was young when I fell in love with you.
You were everything, you were my everything.
Track Name: Alice
Who is that girl?
Dead eyes, pale, beaten and bruised.
She's got the weight of the world on her shoulders;
She's practically invisible.

In herself a prisoner of her mind,
She couldn't search anywhere else to find.
To the world another kid not worth saving.
She has to escape herself.

Trapped within herself.
To leave she'll put her world through hell.
For all the times no one was there as finally taken its toll.
Her wonderland is here and slowly tears apart her soul.
And it hurts.

Prick of a needle with an urge to kill.
She had a whole in her heart that she had to fill.
More to her than a leisurely addiction,
She must escape herself.

Trapped within herself.
To leave she'll put her world through hell.
For all the times no one was there as finally taken its toll.
Her wonderland is here and slowly tears apart her soul.
And it hurts.

What have I done? Where can I go?
How can I run away from this world?
I'll sit and I'll scream; I'll sob and cry.
I'll pray to a lord who's love is a lie.

What happens to life when the end is near?
These sleepless nights and endless tears.
Trapped in my shell, awaiting my hearse.
Why give me hell? My heaven's a curse.

Trapped within herself.
To leave she'll put her world through hell.
For all the times no one was there as finally taken its toll.
Her wonderland is here and slowly tears apart her soul.
And it hurts.
And it hurts.
