No Angel 03:38
Been around the block and all I see No angel coming looking after me I see a lot of faces that believe They fill some predetermined destiny And so much time Flies on by Scared to be alive And so much time Flies on by And you’re scared to say goodbye Since we were young We were told these lies That living for things It change our lives in someway And no one answers what we say And now we're grown up We barely feel alive We're still looking for things That could fill our lives in some way And that makes no common sense to me When I look up I don’t see an angel Smile upon me tonight When I look up All I see are molecules burning blue light When I look up I don’t fear an angel Watching me tonight When I look up All I see are grains of sand passing through time And when we grow up We barely feel alive Cause we're still looking for things That could fill our lives in some way Like the way they always said it would be But we flock like sheep To this great big lie that people dead and gone can still Affect our lives in some way And that makes no common sense to me When I look up I don’t see an angel Smile upon me tonight When I look up All I see are molecules burning blue light When I look up I don’t fear an angel Watching me tonight When I look up All I see are grains of sand passing through time

A-Ok 03:23
Listen can you hear me You're not even listening So close the doors and shut off the lights There’s a storm coming in and I am not alright And this world I seem to recreate Always blows back up in my face And I still cant find the way You know it happens to me almost every single day Cause I know I’ll find the pieces that are missing from my mind And I know we’ll find the passion that I left so far behind I know we’ll find the way To make it all ok I know we’ll find the way To make it all ok Cause sometimes everything’s not A-Ok Listen can you hear me I'm not even speaking As the clouds move in and steal the light I know that better times are far behind And this world I seem to recreate Never works out the way we anticipate And I still cant find the way And as the seasons change it happens more and more each day Cause I know I’ll find the pieces that are missing from my mind I know we’ll find the passion that I have left so far behind I know we’ll find the way To make it all ok I know we’ll find the way To make it all ok Cause sometimes everything’s not A-Ok

We’re heading for disaster The plane was falling faster As we head out over water The sirens start to sound, the engines quit We’re heading for disaster As the bodies start to gather As we crash into the water The water fills my lungs And I cant swim As the plane left ground tonight Could you see I wasn't breathing My lungs dried black from all the breathing As you left me to die here As we fell down from the sky Could you see my heart was bleeding My heart died black from all the beating As you left me die here In this grave made up of treason I still can not believe it That you'd leave me to die here Always thought that we would make it Turns out we did and I can't explain it And you know that you'd leave me to die here all alone You leave me to die here all alone That you'd leave me to die here Always thought that we would make it Turns out we did and I can't explain it And you know that you'd leave me to die here all alone You'd leave me to die here all alone You'd leave me to die here all alone You'd leave me to die here all alone

Born 03:24
We were born with lights down low And that is all we know Apple of our mother and fathers eye Time will come where you will have to let them go time to face the battle on your own We say Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world Think we're going out of our fucking minds Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world Think you're going out of your fucking minds Time will come when you will learn society Lets you down when you stray from the status quo Stand in line with your mouth shut keep your head down low We are all just pawns that make things go Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world Think we're going out of our fucking minds Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world Think you're going out of your fucking minds Time will come when you will stop look around and see  We are all just cogs in a broken machine Wait in line keep your thoughts in please don't make a scene One for none we fall to the selfish regime Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world Think we're going out of our fucking minds Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world Think you're going out of your fucking minds Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world Think we're going out of our fucking minds Hey Hey Hey we've got something to say about all the world Think you're going out of your fucking minds

Alive 03:29
The cops pulled me over on the side of the road First time in my life that I lost control I couldn’t take it Now you can’t believe everything you read When you're feeling like this you will never believe You’re going to make it So I try to believe That everything I see Don’t mean a thing Everything I see Don’t mean a thing And I think that sometimes I think I’m losing my mind Then girl I think about you and I feel fine Don’t you feel alive tonight? Remember way back when we were kids Writing all these songs and we never thought We’re going to make it Now we’re all grown up and barely getting along Lost all your touch and your looks are gone You going to make it? So I try to believe That everything I see Don’t mean a thing Everything I see Don’t mean a thing And I think that sometimes I think I’m losing my mind Then girl I think about you and I feel fine Don’t you feel alive tonight? And I think that sometimes I think I’m losing my mind Then girl I think about you and I feel fine Don’t you feel alive tonight?

We lit a small wood fire To make the ashes for When we take control Of this brave new world We’ll watch you burn We march the streets of fire And the people watched it burn And the leaders gave it all To the rebels of the world If we map the streets out right No one gets out alive Cause you can run there is no where to hide Cause I am coming for you in the night No prayer can save your life For once we're going to watch you as you burn We march the streets of fire And the people watched it burn And the leaders gave it all To the rebels of the world They do the same move every time Prey on the the simple minds As they use your faith to make you fucking blind And we're coming for you in the the night No god can save you life Cause tonight we're going to watch you as you burn And your wealth it will rot away Watch you burn And possessions they fade away As we're facing this dream alone Watch you burn And we walk on this path alone Watch you burn Cause every hour of every day They will watch your ways In your home We march the streets of fire And the people watched it burn And the leaders gave it all To the rebels of the world

I know it's gone half one, by now we've missed the tubes home, night bus won't take me there. Can't fly the pilot's pissed, can't walk the ground flies up and hits me. Best scrape me into a cab and take me home. Face down in poutine Some big cheese all gone sour, enough love to knock a rhino sideways, got shoved under a bus, some big Hollywood ending, Bruce Willis shoots them all and gets the girl. No guns, no girl, somehow i've ended up on Barton So take me home, take me home. I've had more than i can take for one night. One i closed i can nearly focus. Take me home, take me home. I've had all that i can take today. It's all ringing in my ears, take me home. Don't ask i'll tell you, don't ask I'll say the same things over until i'm pissing you off. Scrape me off the walls, chuck me in a bag, drag me past the bouncers, shove me into a cab and take me home. So take me home, take me home. I've had more than i can take for one night. One i closed i can nearly focus. Take me home, take me home. I've had all that i can take today. It's all ringing in my ears, take me home. So take me home, take me home. I've had more than i can take for one night. One i closed i can nearly focus. Take me home, take me home. I've had all that i can take today. It's all ringing in my ears, take me home.
