Track Name: Down Forward, Down Forward, Triple Punch
Down Forward, Down Forward, Triple Punch

Like a deer in the headlights
You have been caught out
Far too concerned
With the greener grass on the other side
Then suddenly you hear
The footsteps drawing near
With nowhere to hide
You’re out of time
So you run

Runway runaway, wandering so aimlessly
This is your night, what are you waiting for?
We walk this lonely path right by your side
You and your gun, waiting for the night
You’re staring down, staring down, stare down the sight at me
Choose your words carefully
It’s time for this to end

Out in the cold, our bodies shaking
Lost in the shadows, as we grow numb


Forever waiting, this choice won’t fade away
Suppress your fears now
It’s never easy to break free and face the truth
There’s nothing left to loose

Save me I pray
Save me I pray
Gather your thoughts from within
Make your escape from this sin
Free yourself
Track Name: Your Last Request
Your Last Request

I feel the weight of life
Pulling me down, pulling me down
With gravity I fall
Nowhere to turn, nowhere to run
Take the wheel tonight and give me some direction

These walls collapse around me
Crumbling at my feet
I close my eyes

As I release my doubts in mind
Hoping that I will find
Something to live for
What do we live for?

Don’t wait for the right time
Our lives are so impatient
Time won’t wait for you
Make this is your last request

All the lies we are the cause of
All the crime we are a part of
We sing for tomorrow

We tend to criticise
The things that we don’t understand
Don’t give into these simple things
Don’t give into these feeble trends

All the lies we are the cause of
All the crime we are a part of
We sing for tomorrow
Track Name: It's OK Pluto, I'm not a Planet either
It’s OK Pluto I’m not a planet either

Dropping names just to get some attention
Sell your self-respect for a taste of success
This scene has become the fashion
This song shall be the parade

Always searching without
Ever knowing what we’re longing for
Can we pretend the future’s now
And who are we to question
What has been written, we stand only so we can fall

Can you feel it?
Burning tonight
We are always calling for you
So have you found the answers for, these inquisitions?
So have you found the answers for?
We are, we are
On our way

These dreams we chase are drifting further away
With each passing day
Tell me who will decide our destination
If this is what you want then make it yours

Can you feel it?
Burning tonight
We are always calling for you
So have you found the answers for, these inquisitions?
So have you found the answers for?
We are, we are
Burning tonight
We are always screaming for you
So have you found what you’ve been searching for?
So have you found yourself?
We are, we are
On our way
Track Name: Violent Words with Violent Ends
Violent words with violent ends

Speak now or forever hold your breath
I have lingered for so long in my bitterness
Choruses echo in the halls of our minds
We turn our backs to leave it all behind

And now you’re bound to the weight of your decisions
These violent words often have violent ends
Violent words often have violent ends

So we bury ourselves to just break away, from the suffering
Inflictions will tell what these scars will not say, this silence deafens me

Can you hear their voices whispering?
The awful things they’ve heard about you
Although it’s not the truth it’s entertaining
So just let the serpents with their wicked tongues
Slither off and have their fun
As their cigarettes bring them to their death

So we bury ourselves to just break away, from the suffering
Inflictions will tell what these scars will not say, this silence deafens me

Just take your time
What have we become?
Hate fills your eyes
You’ve taken away everything
But here I stand
Track Name: Song without a name (for a girl without shame)
A song without a name (for a girl without shame)

I’m letting go, I’m letting go
Of all the things that used to
Keep me awake
I’m letting go, I’m letting go
Of all the memories of you
Take all your things
And leave this place

Let’s break it down
Into words that we can sing
This might just be the only way
My thoughts will ever reach you
Burn this false hope
I never thought that you
Could turn your back on what we had
And now I’m running just to

Find myself underneath the wreckage, somehow
As I break out of this mental prison, I am free

Tell me you’ll stay
If only for tonight
My eyes are sore from all these tears
There’s nothing left inside of here
Know what you did
Was so relentless
And I won’t forgive so easily
When you come crawling back to me

I pray for just one day, Oh God
Please let me escape
This is far too great for me to face alone
So if you think you’re happy
Then darling, why do you so often reassure yourself?
I know these words will break you
Don’t confuse yourself
They’re most certainly about you
At least I know, this song will be my victory
This is my victory

No more will I wait
To see you create
This truth in your eyes
I see your disguise

Hold on, nothing will ever change
Hold on, these memories still remain
Did you realise you’ve been fooled all this time
Now I am free we’re moving forward
Now I can breathe we’re falling head first
To the ground
