TIME TO FINISH THIS NEVER ENDING STORY FOR AN INDUSTRY THAT TRIES TO CONTROL ME YOU ALL HAVE NO IDEA YOU’RE ALL CONSUMED BY FEAR JUST PLAYING GUESSES AS YOU GO GIVING ADVICE ON THINGS YOU DON'T KNOW WELL FUCK YOUR OPINION, I’LL SAY YES WHILE YOU SAY NO WELL NOT A SINGLE ONE OF YOU HAS EVER MADE ANYTHING OF YOURSELVES BUT YOU’LL PASS ADVICE LIKE YOU THINK YOUR OWN SHIT ACTUALLY SELLS I'M SURE YOU THINK THAT BECAUSE YOU’VE BOOKED SOME BANDS THAT YOU HAVE SOME SORT OF RIGHT TO FUCK WITH MY PLANS PUSH THROUGH I’M LET DOWN AGAIN JUST ONE MORE FAKE-ASS FRIEND SIX MONTHS WASTED, TRY TO GET MY FUCKING HEAD TO MEND ALL I WANT IS A TASTE OF SUCCESS, I GET STRESSED, REPRESSED DO IT FOR THE LOVE TO GET THIS SHIT OFF MY CHEST. WHAT’S THIS? ROUND TWO? NOTHING YOU SAID IS TRUE SMALL TOWN IDEAS IT’S ALL THE SAME THERE’S NEVER ANYTHING NEW IN AN OVER SATURATED WORLD, NEAR IMPOSSIBLE TO GET YOUR VOICE HEARD IS THERE SOMETHING YOU’D PREFER? SEE, I DO ME IT’S NOT YOUR TURN. OH, SNAP! DID THAT GET YOUR ATTENTION? WOULD YOU FEEL BETTER IF I HAPPENED TO FORGET TO MENTION... YOU SUCK! GIVE IT ALL THAT I’VE GOT, NOTHING I’M NOT STAB TO THE BACK I GUESS YOU FORGOT YOU PRAY ON THE WEAK NOT FOR US NOW TALK, TRY NOT TO BORE US I BUILD IT UP, YOU TEAR IT DOWN YOU ACT SO PROUD, YOU TALK SO LOUD ACT LIKE YOU ARE FLAWLESS, AS YOU FALL ENJOY THIS SOUND. REMEMBER MY NAME FUCK ALL YOUR MONEY AND YOUR FAME I REFUSE TO REGRET, FORGET EVERYTHING YOU SAID THROUGH ALL THE STRUGGLE AND THE PAIN. AS YOU FALL, ENJOY THIS SOUND.

TWO YEARS IN THE MAKING PULLED APART AT THE SEAMS FRIENDS CONSPIRE AGAINST YOU THE TRUST IS GONE BUT NOT THE DREAM ALL IT TOOK WAS TO KEEP YOUR WORD TURNS OUT EVEN YOU CAN SURPRISE BUILT AN ARMY AROUND YOU A SAFETY NET, A WEB OF LIES. I’D KEEP MY HEAD DOWN IF I WAS YOU CHOOSE TO KEEP THIS UP OR BITE YOUR TONGUE TO YOU THIS IS JUST A GAME, SOMETHING TO DO, A BIT OF FUN EVERY ACTIONS HAS A REACTION I NEVER WAS THE ONE. SHALL WE DISCUSS THE WAY YOU CHANGE THE GAME AS WE GO OR THE WAY YOU ALWAYS THINK THE RULES ARE ALWAYS KNOWN REPEAT IT TO CONVINCE YOURSELF ‘I’LL JUST SMILE AND SIT ON MY THRONE’ OR THE WAY WE’RE PLAYED AGAINST EACH OTHER THE SO CALLED LEADER OF THIS HOME. ONE THING IS SURE YOUR LIES WILL COME BACK TO HAUNT YOU ONE DAY I WILL WEAR THAT CROWN WHY PRETEND YOU DON’T KNOW THAT NEPOTISM RUNS THIS TOWN. DO NO WRONG, TAKE NO SHIT (NEPOTISM RUNS THIS TOWN) PLEASE TAKE MY HAND (YOU’RE HAPPY TO WATCH ME DROWN) LET’S GET OFF THIS SINKING SHIP (DON'T HESITATE, THE TIME IS NOW) AND ONTO DRY LAND (SO RAISE YOUR VOICE AND MAKE A SOUND) RAISE YOUR VOICE AND MAKE A SOUND.

I'M COMING BACK TO WHAT I ONCE CALLED MY HOME TOWN I CAN SEE STRAIGHT UP THE REASONS WHY I HAD TO RUN AWAY EVERYTHING HERE IS COLD AND GREY RUNNING LATE AND UNDERPAID I DON'T KNOW HOW I EVEN STAYED A DAY THE PEOPLE ARE RESERVED, FACED BLURRED THE WAY THEY OPERATE IS JUST ABSURD LIKE HAMSTERS ON A WHEEL UNABLE TO FEEL FIGHTING FOR THEIR NEXT MEAL SO THAT’S IT, YOU REALLY LET THIS TOWN SINK IT’S TEETH IN YOU. DEADBEAT TOWN ANOTHER SOUL TO STEAL, ANOTHER WAY TO FEEL. DEADBEAT TOWN DEADBEAT TOWN SELL IT TO THE DEVIL, MAKE A DEAL. THE TRUTH IS EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS A LIE YOU PEOPLE ARE BRED TO GROW AND DESPISE YOU'VE GIVEN UP THE FIGHT EVERYTHING IT TOUCHES DIES INSIDE ONLY SO MANY TIMES YOU CAN DRY YOUR EYES BUT FOR ALL THAT IT'S WORTH FOR BETTER OR WORSE I BELIEVE IN MYSELF, THAT PLACE IS A CURSE A TOWN BUILT FROM NOTHING YOU PEOPLE ARE DISGUSTING RUN WHILE YOU STILL CAN YOU'RE JUST A PUPPET ON A STRING THIS TOWN’S BUILT FROM NOTHING YOU PEOPLE ARE DISGUSTING RUN WHILE YOU STILL CAN YOU’RE JUST A PUPPET ON A STRING.

Take Me Away 03:14
A RELATIONSHIP SPIRALING OUT OF CONTROL IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE. WE TAKE IT IN TURNS TO TURN UP THE HEAT SEEING JUST HOW FAR WE’LL GO WE PLAY THIS GAME DAY IN DAY OUT HOPING NOBODY ELSE WILL EVER KNOW. TAKE ME AWAY AND SAVE ME I CANT FIGHT YOU ANYMORE TAKE ME AWAY AND BREAK ME YOU LEAVE ME WANTING SO MUCH... MORE. JUST IMAGINE FOR A SECOND THAT YOU REALLY CARED WILL YOU STILL BE THERE WHEN THE LUST HAS CLEARED? WE HAVE TO TRY SO HARD JUST TO FIGHT WHAT WE REALLY WANT DO YOU TELL HIM THAT YOU LOVE HIM? LIKE YOU SHOW ME EVERY SINGLE DAY SHOULD WE PAY THE PRICE, HAVE THE STRENGTH TO RUN AWAY. FALLING FROM GRACE THE GUILT STARTS TO RISE NOW IS OUR CURTAIN CALL LOVE, OR DESPISE. TAKE ME AWAY AND SAVE ME.

''CALL THE SHOTS'' EVERYBODY IN HERE SCREAMS ‘START THE PARTY!’ DO YOU KNOW JUST HOW MUCH I DRINK? I’D LOVE ONE DAY WHERE I CAN ESCAPE THE PATTERN STAY AWAY FROM OTHERS AND MY BRAIN DON’T SHRINK IT’S LIKE NO MATTER WHAT I DO, MY LIFE BELONGS TO YOU YES, PARTY SHE’S A PRINCESS, SHE’S A FUCKING MISTRESS PULL ME DOWN COMPLETELY POUR ME ANOTHER... BUT I CAN’T TAKE THIS, ANYMORE. I’VE HAD ENOUGH DRINKING TOO MUCH IT’S TIME I CALLED THE SHOTS THIS ATTITUDE HAS GOT TO STOP PUSHING ME TO A POINT OF TOTAL DESPAIR YOU’RE PULLING AT MY HEART STRINGS, I’M PULLING OUT MY HAIR WE NEED TO TAKE IT ALL BACK TO SQUARE ONE BEFORE I FORGET HOW TO CARE FOCUS NEEDS TO BE ON MY LOVED ONES, MY CAREER, MY MUSIC TOO WHY DO I SPEND MY TIME AND MONEY, THINKING THAT I’M FUNNY LISTEN TO YOURSELF, YOU KNOW IT’S TRUE I FEEL LIKE IT’S NOT POSSIBLE, SOMETIMES NOT EVEN LIKELY THAT I’LL CHANGE MY WAYS, LIVE THROUGH THIS HAZE, FIND A BALANCE, I THINK IT’S TRUE. BUT FIRST ANOTHER NIGHT, SLEEPING ON THE FLOOR. THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU BURN THE CANDLE AT BOTH ENDS THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU HAVE THE WRONG FRIENDS THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU BURN THE CANDLE AT BOTH ENDS, YEAH. THIS IS WHAT I GOT WHEN I BURNT THE CANDLE AT BOTH ENDS THIS IS WHAT I GOT WHEN I HAD THE WRONG FRIENDS THIS IS WHAT I GOT WHEN I BURNT THE CANDLE AT BOTH ENDS YEAH THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN... AND THAT’S WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU BURN THE CANDLE AT BOTH ENDS IT’S JUST A GOOD JOB NOW THEN, I HAVE THE RIGHT FRIENDS.
