Track Name: xTIMEx (Vocals Only)
Look up and see there is nothing alive
Life doesn't seem to look down so well
Look up and see that nothing survives
I can't tell if its heaven or hell

Cut Cut Cut

You should know that it's heavenly harrowing
To know that everything is slowly narrowing
Three Three Three, My time is coming
Three Two One, Life keeps on running
You should know that it's heavenly harrowing
To know that everything is slowly narrowing
I can't sleep but I'm already dreaming
I can't break glass to fall through the ceiling

Spirits can process a need to possess
The poses and acts to look like they're real
I can't say there is support for progress
Can anyone tell if we can really feel?
Can I be free and free and be free?
I'm having trouble understanding myself
Was there ever a time I felt like I'm me?
It'll all be better when I become someone else

You should know that it's heavenly harrowing
To know that everything is slowly narrowing
Three Three Three, My time is coming
Three Two One, Life keeps on running
You should know that it's heavenly harrowing
To know that everything is slowly narrowing
I can't sleep but I'm already dreaming
I can't break glass to fall through the ceiling

Fight for freedom
Fight to live
Fight for love
Fight to remain
Fight for existence
Fight to continue
Keep on fighting
It won't be ok

You should know that it's heavenly harrowing
To know that everything is slowly narrowing
Three Three Three, My time is coming
Three Two One, Life keeps on running
You should know that it's heavenly harrowing
To know that everything is slowly narrowing
I can't sleep but I'm already dreaming
I can't break glass and fall through the ceiling
Track Name: Two People (Vocals Only)
I never wanted to fight
I didn't need to leave
But with a breath so cold
Do I deserve to breathe
Am I not sick as well?
Aren't we all fucking sick?
So what's the fucking point?
I'm with myself again

I'm not trying to fake myself
I'm just as lost as everyone else
I'm not trying to hide my face
But I just don't want to see you again
I'm not saying the end or start
If there's just two people would you learn to starve?
This isn't what I was meant to say
I pity that this won't go away

I didn't need to know
I never asked for that
I've lost all of my paint
I'm like a canvas, blank
What am I meant to tell you?
That my life is fine?
What can I say right now?
What is my fucking line?

I'm not trying to fake myself
I'm just as lost as everyone else
I'm not trying to hide my face
But I just don't want to see you again
I'm not saying the end or start
If there's just two people would you learn to starve?
This isn't what I was meant to say
I pity that this won't go away

Like a mannequin
Dressed up and stuck up too
Like a Christmas tree
In the month of June
Like a carousel
Spinning up and down
Like I fucked up life
And left it on the ground

I'm not trying to fake myself
I'm just as lost as everyone else
I'm not trying to hide my face
But I fear that I won't see you again
I'm not saying the end or start
If there's just two people would you learn to starve?
This isn't what I was meant to say
I pity that this won't go away

I'm not trying to fake myself
I'm just as lost as everyone else
I'm not trying to hide my face
But I just don't want to see you again
I'm not saying the end or start
If there's just two people would you learn to starve?
This isn't what I was meant to say
I pity that this won't go away
Track Name: Whatever (Vocals Only)
Is this politically active
Or underachieving?
Should I really be scared
At the sight of you leaving?
Am I really that messed up?
A rhetorical question
Please don't forget me
I'll never forget

Myself, My family, My friends
Their all gone
My memories, my hopes, my dreams
Are just one
For worship? For money? for fame?
I have none
I guess I'll forget the rest of this song

Whatever, I guess, the stars are maligned
Whatever, I guess, I'll never feel fine
Whatever, I guess, the world is a starr
Whatever, I guess, I was dreaming too far
Whatever, I guess, I've already sinned
Whatever, I guess, I never could win
Whatever, I guess, if death is a knife
Whatever, I guess, I am unsatisfied

Though I might not have your name or your story
I'm sure someone's told you
That life is worth living
And I might not be having my time of glory
And I can't forget
All the grief I've been giving

Myself, My family, My friends
Their all gone
My memories, my hopes, my dreams
Are just one
For worship? For money? for fame?
I have none
I guess I'll forget the rest of this song

Whatever, I guess, the stars are maligned
Whatever, I guess, I'll never feel fine
Whatever, I guess, the world is a starr
Whatever, I guess, I was dreaming too far
Whatever, I guess, I've already sinned
Whatever, I guess, I never could win
Whatever, I guess, if death is a knife
Whatever, I guess, I am unsatisfied
Track Name: Need 2 Live (Vocals Only)
I'm sorry that I'm writing this
Because it seems I'm kind of cursed
Where everyone I write about
In the end will go away
When I look for purpose in my life
I realise that I've lost my aims
And I'm not sure that I am glad
That death is now a great escape

In selflessness, I feel great
But selfishly, I've made a mistake
I probably gave away too much
Yeah, more than I could give
And in the end, it doesn't help
That all that you'd ever do is take
Not that I would ever blame you
But yeah, I need to live

I help things grow
And then they leave me
Raised so high
That they fly, freely
Never looking back down
I never learnt to fly
So maybe I am lucky then
That I will never be remembered
I'll fade into obscurity
No one will feel me die

In selflessness, I feel great
But selfishly, I've made a mistake
I probably gave away too much
Yeah, more than I could give
And in the end, it doesn't help
That all that you'd ever do is take
Not that I would ever blame you
But yeah, I need to live

In selflessness, I feel great
But selfishly, I've made a mistake
I probably gave away too much
Yeah, more than I could give
And in the end, it doesn't help
That all that you'd ever do is take
Not that I would ever blame you
But yeah, I need to live
Track Name: Dead 2 Me (Vocals Only)
What's it like to be searching
For the mind of the youth?
How would you love to never
See the falsehooded truths?
Is there ever a limit
Does your minds eye expire?
Burn me at the stake
But memories survive fire

And when I'm at my funeral
I'll tell you all to say
Don't feel sorry that I'm gone
I can't remember you anyway
And when I'm at my funeral
I hope you all can see
That I might seem dead to you
But you are more dead to me

Can you live behind glass
To the amusement of none?
Can you ever feel proud
In a war you have won?
Why should value be measured in
Job, money, son?
Why should value be measured in
Job, money, son?

And when I'm at my funeral
I'll tell you all to say
Don't feel sorry that I'm gone
I can't remember you anyway
And when I'm at my funeral
I hope you all can see
That I might seem dead to you
But you are more dead to me

And when I'm at my funeral
I'll tell you all to say
Don't feel sorry that I'm gone
I can't remember you anyway
And when I'm at my funeral
I hope you all can see
That I might seem dead to you
But you are more dead to me
Track Name: The World is Mine (Vocals Only)
I am not of england
I am not of britain
I am not of europe
I am of the world

I wont stop
Until I find
The world is us
The world is mine
I wont stop
Until I find
The world is us
The world is mine

Can you believe it now?
Can you hear it now?
Can you believe it now?
Can you hear it now?

Bottle of cope
I'm left to unwind
I won't stop till the world is mine
Bottle of hope
I can never find
I won't stop till the world is mine

Open the cap of fate
Break down the wall again
Then break down the wall again
Break down the wall again
Then break down the wall again
Break down the wall again
Then break down the wall again
Break down the wall again

I wont stop
Until I find
The world is us
The world is mine
I wont stop
Until I find
The world is us
The world is mine
I wont stop
Until I find
The world is us
The world is mine
I wont stop
Until I find
The world is us
The world is mine (Repeat)
Track Name: The Motions (Going Through) (Vocals Only)
A ghost of the past
Evanescent in the present
The future's not ideal
But we'll probably forget it
What a funny little world
You would kill to be alive
When everyday is suffering
Ask why into the sky

Going through the motions
Learn to look like real emotions
Can I really keep devotion?
When I could easily give up
It's not quite a sickness
Not medically an illness
I'm suffering from realness
I cannot not give a fuck

Let's just say my life
Isn't going as I planned
Wrote a suicide note
Scrunched it up in my hand
I don't want to drench -
You in all of my sorrow
But I just cannot wait
Until there's no tomorrow

Going through the motions
Learn to look like real emotions
Can I really keep devotion?
When I could easily give up
It's not quite a sickness
Not medically an illness
I'm suffering from realness
I cannot not give a fuck

Going through the motions
Learn to look like real emotions
Can I really keep devotion?
When I could easily give up
It's not quite a sickness
Not medically an illness
I'm suffering from realness
I cannot not give a fuck
Track Name: Star ratS (Vocals Only)
Really? I couldn't give less of a shit
But honestly it's become so hard to quit
With you, I can't even write 100 words
In fact I'd be surprised, if this has another verse
And fortunately, I'm killing, every chance with each song
I'll probably look back and think I was wrong
That I'll blame myself, when really all the blame
Should be on the fact, that every day's the same

Try to forget, pass it on by
Make me regret, that I even try
Do it again, I'll stay for a year
Sorry my friend, I wanna disappear
Try to forget, pass it on by
Make me regret, that I even try
Do it again, I'll stay for a year
Sorry my friend, I wanna disappear

Wreck myself
Just to get in a store
Kill myself
Well I'll never be poor
Feelings quit
But forever a winner
Grinning shit
A born to be sinner

Try to forget, pass it on by
Make me regret, that I even try
Do it again, I'll stay for a year
Sorry my friend, I wanna disappear
Try to forget, pass it on by
Make me regret, that I even try
Do it again, I'll stay for a year
Sorry my friend, I wanna disappear
Track Name: Change (Vocals Only)
This is my sit-down grammy speech
Lets teach the world to be unique
In an industry so drained of choice
The noiseless noise is now your voice
This is my sit-down grammy speech
Lets teach the world to be unique
In an industry so drained of choice
The noiseless noise becomes your voice

When you see a thousand names pass by
You're often left to wonder why
or who you are or what you'll be
"Please don't swear on live TV"
Aisles and aisles of teen pop sensations
Miles and miles of a karaoke nation
Hand picked to lead a generation
Is anti-corporate, corporate too?

This is my sit-down grammy speech
Lets teach the world to be unique
In an industry so drained of choice
The noiseless noise is now your voice
This is my sit-down grammy speech
Lets teach the world to be unique
In an industry so drained of choice
The noiseless noise becomes your voice

Lining up for your nomination
For 'outstanding musical contribution'
Hand picked to lead a generation
Hand picked to lead a generation.
Say thanks to your mum
Thanks your dad
The fans and the god
And the troops in [WHEREVER]
The group of people
Who chose you not the others
Your sisters, your mum
And even your brother
You could say more
But its time to go
We have to continue
The rest of the show
I'm sure next year
You'll be, welcome back
"Now please make way
For our, newest act"

This is my sit-down grammy speech
Lets teach the world to be unique
In an industry so drained of choice
The noiseless noise is now your voice
This is my sit-down grammy speech
Lets teach the world to be unique
In an industry so drained of choice
The noiseless noise becomes your voice
Track Name: ATTN SKNG (Vocals Only)
I'm so forgettable
That I could disappear tomorrow
Who knew I'd fly off the Earth
Another starr in the sky
And my dream passes by
And my life passes me by
Without a second notice
Without a second notice

Tried so hard to make myself noticed
Noticed that there's no point in trying
No I can't just keep myself hiding
Hide away and keep myself lying

Tried so hard to make myself noticed
Noticed that there's no point in trying
No I can't just keep myself hiding
Hide away and keep myself lying

I'm so trans-parent
That I can't be accepted
I'm not broken
But you'll try to break me down
I'm so trans-parent
That you can't even see my heart
My face is moulded, twisted and rotten
I don't know where to start

Tried so hard to make myself noticed
Noticed that there's no point in trying
No I can't just keep myself hiding
Hide away and keep myself lying

Tried so hard to make myself noticed
Noticed that there's no point in trying
No I can't just keep myself hiding
Hide away and keep myself lying
