Track Name: I'm over it
"I'm over it"

I suspect, self respect, is at an all time low
You're not well, I can tell, by how you carry your
Self absorbed, past comprehension, this is a life lesson

You said you wanted it all, so take the blame and the fall
Forget the fakes in this town
Sell yourself short and see, who's laughing now
When there is no one around

Once best friends, like you said, it was the only way
One last chance, giving up now, on everything
Say something fast and quick, you know that you need this
Just like a sinking ship, you've already hit bottom. You!

You said you wanted it all, so take the blame and the fall
Forget the fakes in this town
Sell yourself short and see, who's laughing now
When there is no one around

I won't laugh at you, no i won't, i won't
I won't laugh at you, no i won't, i won't
I won't laugh at you, no i won't, i won't, laugh!
Track Name: Haters wanna hate
So this is where we let our guard down (I've got my sights on you)
Just another vacant smile (Still without a clue)
Tell me where the story left off (Where it all began)
I can feel my heart is changing (I'm coming back again)

I'm taking back my life tonight
This is where I draw the line (Don't let me go)
I'm still hanging on
Tell me what's wrong and what's right
This is where I stand tonight (Don't let me go)
I'm still hanging on

Love! Well is it something you're willing to fight for?
Faith! Well is it something you're willing to die for?
Hope! It's always there for the bad and the good times
Love can conquer anything

(Chorus)

I'm giving back my life tonight
This is where I make things right.
Track Name: Heads up
It's getting harder now to break the ice
(When you've been here quite sometime)
The more of me that I still cannot see (Shows who I used to be)
Distances grow further away (When i'm finding words to say)
It always takes another part of me (More so every day)
I think it's time for a, for a change

Build a bridge, I'm falling under
Carried away, now I'm gone
Go ahead and send out the next
One, two, three, four, five, or six
Light me up, cos I am ready
Let me go, to a fault
Go ahead and knock out the last
One, two, three, four, five, or six

Another day, another chance gone by (When it's all I'm looking for)
I'll go ahead, & leave it all behind (A piece of me I can't find)
I've got to mean it, got to find the words (When i'm finding words to say)
Let's try to make this sound like it's rehearsed (More so every day)
I think it's time for a, for a change

(Chorus)

I'm a liar, I'm a faker, I'm a menace, I am a charlatan
Still in motion, your sweet escape, this is me without you.
This is me without you. This is me without you!
Track Name: I surrender
Running home, I find myself. Chasing shadows
This long dark road, has left me here. & i'm coming back to you.

Just say it tonight. & I surrender
I'm still holding on. When all we know, is gone

Well through the grey, I recollect. This bitter taste
A lingering, I'm haunted by. & i'm coming home to you.

(Chorus)

(Whoa oh oh ohhh, Whoa oh oh ohhh, Whoa oh oh oh, Whoa)
So take my hand as we move forward. Don't look back, don't ever look back.
Go ahead, surrender all you have.

When all we know, is gone!
Track Name: Twitter
No more lies, goodbyes, or alibis. You are the poison apple, of my eye
& I'm tired of playing these games.
So tell me everything that you want to hear, so we can go ahead & make these things, clear, as, day.
I'm not running away, I'm not running away
This time, it's your move

Go ahead & give me everything you've got
Go ahead & hit me with your best shot. Whoa ohhh
It's now or never for me.
Go ahead & set me up to knock me down
Go ahead cos you're the one who's going down. Whoa ohhh
It's now or never for me.

Last time, lost mind, & one last call. Picking up the pieces now, where they fall
I take back today, I take back today.
If these scars could speak, I know what they'd say
go ahead & make everything clear as day
I'm not running away, I'm not running away.
This time, it's your move

(Chorus)
Track Name: Lost in Titusville
I always knew (I always knew)
I never should have trusted you, from the start it fell apart just like we always do
I'll sell my dreams for anything, just tell me where to sign
Blood sweat and tears for all the years, write on the dotted line

One million sold, now it's worldwide. We never saw a dime
We paid the price to play those nights with all of our good friends
Liars in white with crooked smiles, you wont hear me complain
My life is more than your payday

But it's ok, it's ok

one more down, ten to go, this road is getting old
Sleepless nights, tensions rise, I feel i've lost my mind
Losing hope, never close to where we'd thought we be
Coming home to start again

(Chorus)

For our dreams and our lives, we never saw a dime
For our dreams and our lives, we never saw a dime
Track Name: Lines
I know who you are (Say it to me, say it to me)
The devil on your shoulder does it every time
Behind these closed doors (Say it to me, say it to me)
These past 10 years they play, in your mind

Felt this way for so many years, Trapped under the weight of these fears
I don't expect you to understand, I'm giving you all I am

I feel it ache in these bones (As these scars run deep)
And what ashes remain (We scatter out to sea)
Hoping, memories, will find their way to us
Now what's harder to say (Sinks in as ink bleeds through)
While with every page (Becomes the person I knew)
Showing some things, only need trust

You know it's gone too far (What do you see, what do you see)
These cuts and bruises show us every time
If these walls could speak (What do you see, what do you see)
They'd write the memoirs of this tragedy

Felt this way for so many years, Trapped under the weight of these fears
I don't expect you to understand, I'm giving you all I am

I feel it ache in these bones (As these scars run deep)
And what ashes remain (We scatter out to sea)
Hoping, memories, will find their way to us
Now what's harder to say (Sinks in as ink bleeds through)
While with every page (Becomes the person I knew)
Showing some things, only need trust

Felt this way for so many years, Trapped under the weight of these fears
I don't expect you to understand, I'm giving you all I am

I found a place called home, it sits under this stone
You cast at me back when, You were my best friend
I found a place called home, it sits under this stone
You cast at me back when, You were my best friend
