Track Name: It's Alright
I
I wanna save you
I
I wanna crave you

There's so much more that I can be
When you're standing here with me

I
I wanna see you
I
I wanna be you

But this is all that I can be
If I let go then I can see
It's alright
Track Name: Anymore
They need to know what you should do
Just look around cause they assume
That no one knows what's coming
They don't know how to move
I need to find some peace of mind
So if you could just take the time
Give me a little push
Just go ahead and push

I can't look at my face anymore
The face of those that have no clue
And if I change my face anymore
Will I be visible to you

I can see you're telling me
That this and that is where it's at
But if I take a little look it's your intentions I mistook
And if I thought I had a clue
That I knew what to do
But between me and you I need to start anew
Can't you see it's killing me it's not a sin they disagree
They'll make you into something you'd never wanna be
I hope that somewhere down the line I find the strength
For that first running jump
Go ahead and jump

Can you see my face anymore
I'm not sure you see the real me
If I show that side a little more
Light me up so they can see
Track Name: Say That To My Face
Say that word to my face again
Go ahead and say it one more time
Please repeat that once again
I think we're on a faulty line
If I hear that shit again
I think I'll lose my fucking mind

No this aint about me or you
This is about everyone else
No this aint about what you can't do
I'm trying to save you from yourself
It's becoming clearer everyday
You just don't care what I say

Say that to my face again
I don't know why I waste my time
Let's all hear it once again
Please feel free to cross the line
Go ahead say what you want
Just prepare to be left behind

No this aint about what you can't do
This is about everyone else
No this aint about me or you
I'm trying to save you from yourself
No this aint about what is true
This is about getting some help
But if you can't listen to me
Then there's nothing left for you
Track Name: It's Not A Sin
It was a sin
But now we've been through this
I can't change at my core
Outside is where I'm not anymore
If you got under my skin
You'd see just what I've been
Through hell cause being like this
Kills me on the inside
And where can I hide
From myself but now we've been through this
It's not a sin

You can change if you want
But only if it suits me
I can give you what you want
But only if you pay me
Are you sure it's who you are
Cause if not it'll cost me

I think I get the gist
They don't want me to do this
But they can't stop me now
No way and no how
Not after I've been
On the end of his grin
I'ts not a sin

You can change if you want
But only if it suits me
I can give you what you want
But only if you pay me
Are you sure it's who you are
Cause if not it'll cost me
You can think what you want
But only if I agree
Track Name: Crash And Burn Society
I don't have a place among the
People wearing suits and ties
From the sidelines observe them closely
I see laughter but I'm hearing lies
Could it be there's a place for me
In this crash and burn society

I can see
The majority lying
Through their teeth
While the rest are left

Crying waiting for some help now
People shrug and pass them by
I can't help but feel that somehow
It won't be better before I die
Could it be there's a place for me
In this crash and burn society

I can see
The majority lying
Through their teeth
While the rest are left

Just surviving on their own now
All but nothing to get them by
Could we make it better somehow
All we'd have to do is try
Track Name: Monster
When you
When you call
Do you feel nothing
Nothing at all
It's like a sickness
That won't go away
What can I do
To keep it at bay

I'm like a monster better lock me away
Cause if I see you who knows what I will say
Yeah I can hear you I can hear you call
But you see through me you see nothing at all
Nothing at all

It's been weeks now since I've seen you face
And there's this feeling in my stomach that's telling me that you can't be replaced
So I'll just keep it
All to myself
Are you feeling how I'm feeling or are you with somebody else

I'm like a monster better lock me away
Cause if I see you who knows what I will say
Yeah I can hear you I can hear you call
But you see through me you see nothing at all
Nothing at all

Nothing at all can change what I have done
Now I'm just looking for the cure to stop my body feeling numb

Yeah when you
When you don't call
I feel nothing
Nothing at all
I don't see you
When I'm awake
And still I wonder
What would it take

I'm not a monster please don't lock me away
If I try hard enough I know I can change
And I can hear it I can hear the call
No I don't wanna no I don't wanna fall
Track Name: Keep You With Me
You were
So good
You loved
The only way you could

And in my own little way
I'll keep you with me

You were
So loved
You are
Somewhere high above

I hope I do right by you
I hope you're okay
