Track Name: Amy Baby
Do I speak in a foreign language when I speak to you, do the words get through?
Cos it seems everything I say gets pushed aside, thrown away, what do I need to do, to get through to you?

And now it's Christmas time and I feel alone, it's holidays and I just stay home
Thinking up different ways for you to accidentally notice me

Amy baby open up to me
I wanna be the one that you're dreaming of
And I said waiting for your day to end just so we can meet again
I wanna be the one that you're dreaming of

Now I've tried waiting patiently but patience don't come easy to me
Do I really need to spell this out, surely I've been through enough by now
You take away my energy, my lust for life and positivity
Now even the simplest tasks have become so goddamn hard

And now it's Christmas time and I feel alone, it's holidays and I just stay home
Thinking up different ways for you to accidentally notice me

Amy baby open up to me
I wanna be the one that you're dreaming of
And I said waiting for your day to end just so we can meet again
I wanna be the one that you're dreaming of

And I said my heart beats for you
My heart beats for you
My heart beats for you
My heart beats for you

Now it's Christmas time and I feel alone, it's holidays and I just stay home
Thinking up different ways for you to accidentally notice me

Amy baby open up to me
I wanna be the one that you're dreaming of
I said waiting for your day to end just so we can meet again
I wanna be the one that you're dreaming of

Woah, woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah, woah
Woah.
Track Name: Red Box
It's triumph or nothing
And I want nothing more to do with you
There's only one thing on my mind and it consumes all of my time
And I can't waste any more of it trying to reason with you

They're coming after me
They're coming after me
And when they find me I'm coming after you

They're coming after me
They're coming after me
And when they find me I'm coming after you

I've got this red box of dreams in my head
And they won't stop driving me until the day that I'm dead

So tell me where I'll be in ten years or so
Cos I hate these patterns that form and grow
Because when it all starts falling down
I don't wanna be the one still stuck on the ground

They're coming after me
They're coming after me
And when they find me I'm coming after you

I've got this red box of dreams in my head
And they won't stop driving me until the day that I'm dead

Red box of dreams in my head
Red box of dreams in my head.
Track Name: Loud and Clear
I wake up whenever I like
I wake up regardless of the time
I'm done with everybody telling me how to be
I'm done with regimented, doing things my own way now

Loud and clear
Music to my ears

Dance like noboby's looking
Sing like nobody's listening
Laugh out loud cos you only got one life live it well
Grow your hair out long
Do it before it's gone
Show your family you care cos you've only got one life live it well

I wanna go outside and see the great outdoors
I wanna go outside and do some exploring
Just you and me oh and the open road
Just you and me oh going wherever the wind blows us

Loud and clear
Music to my ears

Dance like noboby's looking
Sing like nobody's listening
Laugh out loud cos you only got one life live it well
Grow your hair out long
Do it before it's gone
Show your family you care cos you've only got one life live it well

Dance like noboby's looking
Sing like nobody's listening
Laugh out loud cos you only got one life live it well
Grow your hair out long
Do it before it's gone
Show your family you care cos you've only got one life live it well

Dance like noboby's looking
Sing like nobody's listening
Laugh out loud cos you only got one life live it well
Grow your hair out long
Do it before it's gone
Show your family you care cos you've only got one life live it well

Live it well
Live it well, live it well, live it well
Live it well
Live it well
Live it well, live it well, live it well.
Track Name: The Addict
Right now there's nothing in the world I want more
Right now, I want it right now
Right now there's nothing in the world I need more
Right now, I need it right now
And I can't break free
The beast has got its teeth in me
Oh I am under a spell, this place could be hell
But there's nowhere else I'd rather be

I said woah just let it go, let it go
Oh I said woah let it go, let it go man just let it go
Woah let it go, let it go
Oh I said woah let it go, let it go man just let it go

Right now there's nothing in the world I want more
Right now give it to me right now
Right now there's nothing in the world I need more
Right now oh I could kill you for it
And I can't break free
This isn't who I was brought up to be
Oh so God why don't you intervene?

Oh I said woah just let it go, let it go
Oh I said woah let it go, let it go man just let it go
Woah let it go, let it go
Oh I said woah let it go

I thought I could do this on my own
Oh but without you I haven't got much hope
I thought I could oh get through this
Oh but instead I keep taking the wrong medicine over and over again

I said woah just let it go, let it go man just let it go
Woah let it go, let it go man just let it go
Woah let it go, let it go
Oh I said woah let it go

Woah let it go man, let it go man just let it go
Woah let it go man, let it go man just let it go
Woah let it go man, let it go man just let it go
Woah let it go man, let it go man just let it go
Track Name: Hall Drive
Running around in the same old town
Been here for quite a while now
Still living in the house on top of the hill
Looking out at the street from the window sill
And as the cars travel on by
I think of all the reasons why
Why am I here? and why is she there?
I feel like there's gotta be more to this

If she don't turn left
Keep driving straight ahead
Make her way to 103
And she decide to come back to me
Confess with open arms
She missed me from the start
Just needed some time away
To deal with the painful memory

I tried so hard to make her memory fade
But its been 3 months and I feel the same
Communication has now been ceased
Unable to face up to what she did
Once a heart of gold, full of life
Now a heart of stone, dead in side
Forced to pass her street every single day
So close to home a million miles away

If she don't turn left
Keep driving straight ahead
Make her way to 103
And she decide to come back to me
Confess with open arms
She missed me from the start
Just needed some time away
To deal with the painful memories

Memories of what he did
He took her heart and buried it
Somewhere so way down deep
Too far for me to reach
Too cold to be embraced
Too distant to be chased
Till the day she return to me
Ah she will remain my runaway

Runaway
Runaway
Runaway, runaway
Runaway oh oh oh
Runaway oh oh oh
Runaway, runaway, runaway

If she don't turn left
Keep driving straight ahead
Make her way to 103
And she decide to come back to me
Track Name: Scarlet's Ghost
I need you to take me around the world
I need you to show me all your hidden pearls
Of wonder oh that you're keeping from me
I know they're there, I've seen them once, still stuck inside my dreams

Oh the hurt it took to watch you walk away
But I had to stare just out of curiosity
For the wonder oh that you once gave freely
I know it's there, I've seen it once, I hear it in their screams

And she says to me
And she says to me go

I got a plan for you my dear
I got a plan for you baby oh yeah
And she comes at me in the day
Oh and she comes at me in the night
I got a plan for you baby

I need you to show me that the tables turn
I need you to punish them for lessons unlearned
This strong desire that I sometimes feel for you
Just reverse this curse and make it so that all my dreams pull through

And she says to me
And she says to me go

I got a plan for you my dear
I got a plan for you baby oh yeah
And she comes at me in the day
Oh and she comes at me in the night
I got a plan for you baby

Brings me down, brings me down
When I see you around
brings me down, brings me down
When I see you around
Brings me down, brings me down

You bring me down
You bring me down
You bring me down
You bring me down

She says to me
You bring me down
She says to me
You bring me down.
Track Name: Note to Self
I can see where you went wrong
But I can see just how far you've come
Yes some changes must be made
It's all a part of learning from your mistakes

Seems like you've lost your hold
It's time to take back control

Place your hand over your heart
Promise yourself that you'll never give up
You've got more fight than world war two
Embrace that wild blood that pumps through you

Now you've regained control
Don't ever let it go

This is our time
this our place
Won't let anyone get in our way

This is our time, our time
this our place, our place
Don't let anyone, no one, get in our way.
Track Name: Carnival of Lost Souls
Well I'm a man on a mission
And I got little chance of survival
yet I soldier, I soldier on
Until all that's left is gone

Now I searched this city high and low
And I got nowhere else to go
So I'll make my way down
In the hope that some day
My soul is found

In the carnival of lost souls
You can find me there on the carousel
Going around and round endlessly
Until I find my soul again
I'm stuck for all eternity

Well I watch the devastation grow
As I fill the missing pieces to this puzzle
My conscience is my worst enemy
This internal battle wages constantly

Now I searched this city high and low
And I got nowhere else to go
So I'll make my way down
In the hope that some day
My soul is found

In the carnival of lost souls
You can find me there on the carousel
Going around and round endlessly
Until I find my soul again
I'm stuck for all, said I'm stuck for all
Said I'm stuck for all, said I'm stuck for all eternity

Well I searched this city high and low
And I got nowhere else to go
So I'll make my way down
In the hope that some day
My soul is found

In the carnival of lost souls
You can find me there on the carousel
Going around and round endlessly
Until I find my soul again
I'm stuck for all, said I'm stuck for all
Said I'm stuck for all, said I'm stuck for all eternity.
Track Name: Pull the Trigger
Well it's not the way that I looked at you that day
It's the way I made myself feel on the inside
And if I could take back the events of that day
Well I think that I might have to think twice

Go ahead and pull the trigger
It's not like you don't like to hurt
Not like you didn't lie to her
Go ahead and pull the trigger
It's not like you don't like the pain
But you still complain

Well it's not the way that you looked at me that day
It's the way that you made yourself feel on the inside
And if you could take back the events of that day
Well I think that you might have to think twice

Go ahead and pull the trigger
It's not like you don't like to hurt
Not like you didn't lie to her
Go ahead and pull the trigger
It's not like you don't like the pain
Oh but you still complain

It's nobody's fault here oh but your own dear
Take what you can from this and let the bad just fade
It's nobody's fault here oh but your own dear
take what you can and everything will just be A OK

Go ahead and pull the trigger
It's not like you don't like to hurt
It's not like you didn't lie to her
Go ahead and pull the trigger
It's not like you don't like the pain
Oh but you still complain

You love the pain
You love the pain
You love the pain oh
But you still complain

You love the pain
You love the pain oh
You love the pain
But you still complain.
Track Name: Electricity
Running around town
Running around town

Running around town
Running around town

She said it's not what I did
It's more how I did it

There's gotta be a better way
I swear to God gonna have my say oh

When she touch me
Electricty

Track Name: Lucky Numbers
Trying so hard not to break my stride
Trying so hard not to get swept by your tide
But life's been so hard since you came in to my life
So I'm sorry babe but I gotta cut all ties

See I've walked down these streets before
And all my steps keep leading me to the same door
And I know what's on the other side's so unhealthy
But I just can't help but satisfy my curiosity yeah

Trying so hard and it's just not me
I'm giving you my all just to receive nothing
but still I can honestly say you're the most beautiful girl
That my eyes have ever seen in this whole Goddamn world

See I've walked down these streets before
And all my steps keep leading me to the same door
And I know what's on the other side's so unhealthy
But I just can't help but satisfy my curiosity yeah

Oh you see I could've loved you my girl
And I don't see me living life without you in my world
But you bring me down so fucking low
So I'm sorry babe but I gotta let, let you go

See I've walked down these streets before
And all my steps keep leading me to her front door
And I know what's on the other side's so bad for me
But I just can't help but satisfy my curiosity yeah

Oh you see I could've loved you my girl
And I don't see me living life without you in my world
But you bring me down so fucking low
So I'm sorry babe but I gotta let, I'm letting you go

Letting you go
Letting you go
Letting you go
Even if it kills me
Letting you go
Letting you go
Please don't go.
Track Name: Better Days to Come
A cruel twist of fate
Written on his face
A bad decision
But one he was always gonna make
He knows in time
She'll realise the mess she made
And eventually regret she didn't take the time
To reconcile things with him

Oh my son
You gotta learn from this
Oh my son
Gotta see the positive
Better days to come
Now you're in the thick of it
Gotta train your eyes to see
Beyond adversity

The hurt he feels
Stronger now than ever before
Once content to give it all away
Thought he'd found what he was looking for
He still hears her voice from time to time
In the annals of his mind
And now any sign of beauty
Makes him feels uneasy

Oh my son
You gotta learn from this
Oh my son
Gotta see the positive
Better days to come
Now you're in the thick of it
Gotta train your eyes to see
Beyond adversity
You've got to train your eyes to see
Beyond adversity

A cruel twist of fate
Written on his face
A bad decision
But by God he'll learn from his mistake.
