Fly Away 02:17
I stay way from the words in your head, ‘Cause I don’t want to know what you regret. All along you’ve claimed your place in time, But improvement doesn’t show a sign! You’ve got to fly away From the wreckage that you’ve left when you turned away You’ve got to stay away Start today by living your life for yourself! In your mind it never rests. Put away those thoughts that put you to the test. Think of everything you’ve left behind, It’s the only beauty you will find! You’ve got to fly away From the wreckage that you’ve left when you turned away You’ve got to stay away Start today by living your life for yourself! Until you take the reins, Nothing will happen and nothing will change. Now is the time to step to the plate and swing it away You’ve got to fly away From the wreckage that you’ve left when you turned away You’ve got to stay away Start today by living your life for yourself!

No Paradise 01:51
Looking at the billboards they place in front of me Seems we’re all seduced by this mad complacency Everything’s so soft like a whisper in the night No one will break through it harbors all my freight No paradise! No paradise! It’s all diversion you’ll be marginalized! No paradise! No paradise! We dream away with all the perfect lies! All your peers will tell you that you are out of step Because you question them, and won’t comply Society’s grip, stretches over you To make no more choice, do what they do No paradise! No paradise! It’s all diversion you’ll be marginalized! No paradise! No paradise! We dream away with all the perfect lies! The information highway now tells you what is right No one’s left objective, we fight about the price Deserted from all dreams that you once knew Too lost without direction, too lost to renew No paradise! No paradise! It’s all diversion you’ll be marginalized! No paradise! No paradise! We dream away with all the perfect lies! It’s all diversion you’ll be marginalized!

Put Through 02:05
Your heart of glass is fragile and the cracks are clear from afar How much longer will you keep faking the real person that you are? You’ve tried to love but only learnt to accept All the hidden secrets that you kept, and choices you’ll regret Please do know that this is just the past Those thoughts will only haunt you, so please accept That you've made mistakes, we all did, and will do Don’t forget, it’s your life, it’s up to you They fucked you over like you were their stepping-stone Your skin is thick, but I want to see the feelings you haven’t shown People have been treating you like you were just a joke And in fear I wonder how much hateful word you need before you choke! Please do know that this is just the past Those thoughts will only haunt you, so please accept That you've made mistakes, we all did, and will do, Don’t forget, it’s your life, it’s up to you! I’ll be there when you need me to, but you have to tell me what you’ve been put through

False Calls 02:51
Who are you to judge me for my faults? After all the lies you’ve told Why would I need to apologize? Trailed and judged in a traitors eye You’ve got no rights to speak your vow And apology won’t help you now I have to answer these false calls For the sake of your revenge But I tear down the walls I have to answer these false calls But I can’t care anymore Tell me again how I am to blame, for faults that you made just the same. Egoistic for you moment of fame, dragging me down for your own gain! You’ve got no rights to speak your vow And apology won’t help you now I have to answer these false calls For the sake of your revenge, but I tear down the walls I have to answer these false calls But I can’t care anymore. I don’t care anymore I still don’t care I have to answer these false calls For the sake of your revenge I have to answer these false calls But I can’t care anymore I have to answer these false calls For the sake of your revenge But I tear down the walls I have to answer these false calls But I can’t care anymore

Bare Feet 02:36
There was once this kid that I knew He used to be positive, he used to be old school But sadly for him did the time pay its price Now he’s deprived By his own lies He didn’t listen to advice, and let his dealer roll his dice His grip on his life was gone And he knew it seemed lost, but he held on Everyone deserves a fresh start And he remembered, cold hands, warm heart I told the kid to do better than this, I called him to mind A life of abuse, all the drugs that he used And the friends that he lost He told me he tried but failed over again But remain and restrain won’t drain away his pain His grip on his life was gone And he knew it seemed lost, but he held on Everyone deserves a fresh start And he remembered, cold hands, warm heart I helped him get rid of his bad habits To live a better life He never thanked me, I was okay with that Until I found him in the alley where he once sat Back to the start Forgot what I thought And left him for dead In the alley he sat His grip on his life is now gone And I know it’s all lost but I held on Everyone deserves one fresh start And I remember his cold hands, on my warm heart Cold hands Warm heart
