Track Name: Fly Away
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!
Track Name: No Paradise
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!
Track Name: Put Through
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
Track Name: False Calls
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
Track Name: Bare Feet
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
