Track Name: T&A
v1
See you standing there
See you look at me
I try not to stare
But you want me to be
Got your hair dyed
Got your fake tan
Got me looking over
All according to plan
Playing hard to get
With your cigarette
But you look and see
That all that hasn't got me yet
Because I don't care
About your clothes and hair
Because I've got eye-candy to spare

p
You could be a mediocre porn star
A pretty good stripper
A half-naked waitress
Flirting for the big tipper
But you know that you're more
Than just some T&A
You don't have to use your body
To get your way

c
You don't have to let them bring you down
You know you found the right way on your own

v2
On a Saturday
You don't go out and play
You'd rather sit inside
And spend your time another way
You'd rather read a book
Than find that hot new look
It's all so meaningless
For all the time that it took
Because it doesn't last
It fades away so fast
And when it's gone you know
That all your best's in the past
When your conversation
Leads to infatuation
It's your justification
Track Name: Gated Youth
Verse 1:
Some people wish for disaster
To wash the world away
I say they choose their ignorance
To the truth of judgement day

When it all burns down
There's nothing left to say
There's no one right or wrong
At the end of days

Chorus:
Survival isn't victory
Existence isn't proof
Praying for extinction
Is the pride of gated youth
Maybe in tomorrow we will
Find a better way
To put the past behind us
And live in this today

Verse 2:
Why not try a little harder
Why not see the better half
Try not to dwell on your misfortunes
Instead look back on it and laugh

Whatever got you here
Can't have been that bad
You can't say you hate everyone
With all these friends that you've had
Track Name: Time for a Change
Verse 1:
At first it wasn't fully realized
Oh my god I don't know what to say
This deviation can't be discerned
But I don't know another way
And every little chance we've taken
Every time we've almost lost it all
I can't believe a life is ended
Over something that can seem so small

Chorus:
And who will dream the way we do
When all is stripped away
And who will walk the steps we take
Who hears the things we say

Verse 2:
This isn't something words can translate
They'll never understand our bond
They fear whatever makes us different
It's a wall that they can't get beyond
Take my hand
And run away
I know it hurts
But we can't stay
I know there's something better out there
If we can only find our place

Chorus:
And who will dream the way we do
When all is stripped away
And who will walk the steps we take
Who hears the things we say
'Cause all that's left is moving on
All we've known has gone away
And those we love will fight the truth
To live another day

Bridge:
Who will let us fall
Who will guide the way
And who will understand
The promises we've made

Chorus:
And who will dream the way we do
When all is stripped away
And who will walk the steps we take
Who hears the things we say
'Cause all that's left is moving on
All we've known has gone away
And those we love will fight the truth
To live another day
And isn't that our way
Track Name: Over, Again
Verse 1:
Brushed over, tired eyes
You can't disguise
Disdain at everything he tries
Washed out, broken down
You hit the ground
But he won't even hear a sound

Chorus:
Start over, start again
Look inside and make amends
Find the strength to feel the words
You say when you pretend

Verse 2:
If this is more than you can take
Then let go, you let go
This isn't something you can fake
Oh I know, yeah, I know
More than you can do
I can promise you
You can follow through
What you wanted to
You can face what you embrace
You only have to choose

Chorus:
Start over, start again
Look inside and make amends
Find the strength to feel the words
You say when you pretend
Start over, start again
Doesn't mean this has to end
Follow this path and make
The choices that your heart intends

Bridge:
One love, one life
You can't deny
Your heart, your pride
You hold inside
Get up, get out
Get what you want
Don't live this lie
Track Name: Say Oh, Hey
Verse 1:
Say oh, hey
How's life today
You're looking for a new way
To make this feeling stay
What a waste
Of a new day
Don't let it get away
This chance to make it great

Pre-Chorus:
And as the sun goes down
We'll make our way around this town

Chorus:
And we'll let the horizon come
Drive the past away, we'll drive the past away
And we'll chase the setting sun
Tonight is a new day, tonight is a new day

Verse 2:
Say oh, hey
What do you say
You left it all behind
You cleared it from your mind
Just to say
I'm fine today
No worries anyhow
No one can stop us now
Track Name: Tender Penetration
Verse 1:
Never thought I'd be here
Never thought I'd be so deep
Never thought I'd get so far
From values that I keep
Just a little to start with
Just a little more
For just another dime
I'll be anybody's whore

And every hour, every minute
I'm sinking further, deeper in it
I'll worry about it later
Feel like shit some other day

Chorus:
If you keep giving
Then I'll keep taking
This tender penetration's
Got me in over my head
And I can't see to the end

Verse 2:
Why's it gotta be like this
Why's it gotta take everything
I just can't seem to get this
I just wonder what's happening
Give us shit like we're selfish
Like we want money for nothing
Just to validate yourself
To feel you're doing something

We slave away to fund our dreams
But nothing's ever what it seems
We can't escape from what it takes
To try to get away

Bridge:
I'm chasing something I can see
It's sitting right in front of me
I can be what I want to be
But then I'll have to pay the fee
Track Name: Pop Punk, Rock, Alternative, - Death of Self
v1
This is a wake for the death of self
The broken toys left on the shelf
The hearts with nothing left to bleed for
It's not a question of time and grace
The tears are bleeding from her face
Your dreams are washing up on the shore

p1
And all I'm asking is for a little more
Than what we came for
And oh, it's what we're living for

c
And nothing's going to change us
Or take away our love
Of all the things that make us
Who we are and it's because
Of all those things we treasure
And passions from the start
And no one can extinguish
What's burning in our hearts

v2
And don't ever let down, don't let it go
From who you are and what you know
It's getting better every day from now
So hold onto that rush you get
Those things that make you break a sweat
It's easy when you already know how
