Track Name: Pacified (2013 Version)
VERSE 1:
I know I'm dead to you, but I'm alive and feeling fine so
I know you'd like me to, but I feel better you're no better that me
You play these games with me, and I'm your subject of perfect reject
You'll twist my arm and see, that I feel better so much better than you

CHORUS:
I know you feel alive, when you are pacified
I doubt you'll feel alive, until you lose your mind
I know you feel alive, when you are sanctified
I doubt you'd feel alive, until you say goodbye
(Do you feel like you are dying?)

VERSE 2:
Tick tock the music clock is counting hours going sour
You always knew the truth but somehow reason sent you treason beliefs
I love the way you move, the silent actions and slow reactions
And if your foot should fall, then I would catch you,
Not a scratch will scar
Track Name: Women
VERSE 1:
She's like rain pouring down my skylight and she
Soaks my brain, even if she's not like other
Girls I know, women are confusing and she's gone
She's like paint, colouring my canvas and she's
Always quaint, even when she understand my
Head still aches, women are amazing and I'm gone

CHORUS:
Another day, it's all the same
I won't complain, it's all the same as you said

VERSE 2:
She's like light, street lights in suburban places
Hurt my eyes, four o'clock the morning is a
Fight for life, women are amusing and I'm gone

VERSE 3:
She's so cute, playing cops and robbers in a
World of blue, don't know why I bother when I
Sleep at night, I think of you to put me back to sleep
Track Name: The Scene (Can't Get Away From It)
VERSE 1:
And we came in fast and low this year
When it sold it we're out of here
{But it ever really matter to you?
Did it ever really matter to you?}
And we spin like rotors on a plane
And we spin so fast we look the same
{But did it ever really matter to you?
Did it ever really matter to you?}

CHORUS:
I can't get through it
I can't go over it
I can't get round it
So I'm gonna get away from it
I can't get through it
I can't get over it
I can't get away from it
I can't get around it
So I better get used to it

VERSE 2:
When it's too loud it sounds the same
We'll teach you how to play the game
{But did it ever really matter to you?
Did it ever really matter to you?}
If you're caught sleeping at the wheel
You're gonna beg, buy, maybe even steal
{But did it ever really matter to you?
Did it ever really matter to you?}

BRIDGE:
My body can't contain this town
We're gonna have to burn this down
It's breaking on the inside out
C'mon girl and slow me down!

COUNTER BRIDGE:
Whatever, whatever works!
Track Name: Holding Out For One More Chord (2013 Version)
VERSE 1:
Oh, no, let's not go down this road again
Oh, no, my heart is something I should defend
Do you like make believe? Why do you have to leave?
Me like the others made a habit of doing
Did you feel like I did, when we did what we did?
So tell me what do you think you are doing?

VERSE 2:
Oh no, so baby don't you leave me alone
Oh no, you cannot get no blood from a stone
All those things that you said, they all run through my head
If it were murder they would throw you in prison
Why do you stay away, when I ask you to stay
So tell me baby why the hell won't you listen?

CHORUS:
It's like I'm not myself at all
It's like a mouse who thinks he's tall (it's like the calm before the storm)
It's like I wake but I'm asleep
It's like I'm strong, but I am weak
It's like a room without a door
It's like I am what you ignore
It's like I'm not myself at all
Holding out for just one more chord...

VERSE 3:
Oh no, you'll never want to see me again
Oh no, I love you but I wanna pretend
That you are a girl, with a heart for the world
And all the boys think you are something amazing
I will not turn away, not one chance, not today
Cause I was first to think that you were amazing
Track Name: One More Song (2013 Version)
VERSE 1:
I been walking the same old line for about eighteen years or so
Never thought I could work it out but alright I thought you'd like to know
Got a melody one more song and a gift, I guess you could say more
I been pushing the same old line for a while, a fact I can't ignore

CHORUS:
One more song, one more night
(to pick the pieces up, the pieces that I left behind)
One more wrong, one more right
(I never said goodbye, and if I could I would rewind)
One more song, one more night
(to pick the pieces up, the pieces that I left behind)
Feels so wrong, but feels so right
(I never said goodbye, but I was always so out shined)

VERSE 2:
You've been checking the coast was clear for a while, I jumped right out of town
I've been running the same idea for a while, and man it gets me down
Driving round in a one horse town it's a blast, you're pretty out of sight
But you know that that time has come and passed and you know that I was right

BRIDGE:
And you know, I'm around, if you need me I'll be looking out at
you, on the ground, if you need me I'll be looking at the stars
In the sky, yeah I'm leaving town, I'm leaving here for good
