Track Name: Live It Up (Fuck It Up)
Life is a horizontal fall
You gotta grab the fun and take it all
It's a real deal, baby, aint no reversal
They say it's free - how much is free?

You can have it all.

Live it up, fuck it up
Track Name: Too Many Secrets
Talk in riddles, hide in shadows
Full of shit you hypocrite
A furtive glance and awkward silence
What's it all about?

They lie to you, they lie to me, they lie to everyone.

Creeping round in the dead of night
Whispered words, all cloak and dagger
Hands held tightly over mouths
What's it all about?
Track Name: Can't Deny
My heart it turns around everytime i’t’s true
The heat that chases me, I can’t survive
You’re the sun that hits the ground on which I try to run,
I can’t believe what I believe

My heart it turns around everytime it’s true
The road I’m running down, I meet my faith in you
I try to reach out but you’re gone and everyday is just the same I realise

Walk, talk, inside I die
Walk, talk, these feelings I can’t hide
Walk, talk, everytime I try.

I can’t deny
Track Name: Built To Win
How do I react, my senses overload, I lose my place, lose my mind
And light and day they seem to fade, everything else just fades away

I don’t know whatever happened to this thing called my life
And I intensify my loss of mind, my fate is gone, it’s no longer mine

I’m alive, built to win

Can’t go back, devestation's not far away, light and day seem to fade
But if I self believe built to win.
All I know, I’m built to win
Track Name: Taste The Pain
Trail of tears I cannot mend, never took time to comprehend
Like a scar you run deep, you agitate

Cannot reverse this growing trend, don't wanna be here 'til the end
I shout my worst to an empty room, my senses are numb

Taste the pain - all that you've given me
Taste the pain - all that is left for me
Taste the pain - all that you've given me
Taste the pain - all that is left

Trail of tears I cannot mend, all the years that meet no end
A growing fear, the only way, my senses are clear

There's nothing
Track Name: 24/7
I can't wait any longer, i won't be put on hold
Change that red light to green, let's go go go

I want it yesterday.

I will not lose a minute and you won't take from me
I call it, I do it, me me me
Track Name: No Difference
Is there no difference?, Are we no different?

I'm more different than you

Are we any different? What makes us who we are?
See everything, we buy everything, this microcosm of life
We look inside, all we show is the outside
Psychosis of what we should be, self analytical, do we care?
Do we give a fuck? 'cos I know I don't!!
Track Name: One More Second
Don't wanna be in someone's shadow, be inspired not too shallow
Be someone make it happen.
This is me I won't slow down, reality will come around, I'm gonna be there

Here to stay, save your heartache for another day, one more second I want to stay

Don't race too quick and you'll go faster, at the time seemed to last, never quit never get me down
In my life I always reckoned, I won't quit, one last second. you're my inspiration
Track Name: My Life in a Movie
Start to tell a story but she took it away, no one can watch now
Extract of my life was shot in a movie but now it's lifted out
I have 4 minutes 20 seconds of memory no longer mine
how can I expect you to understand....she screamed at me

Taken away


My bleeding heart, no longer loved or cared, my bleeding heart
Track Name: Lose My Mind
Keep it going, under pressure, stop to think and it's gone
Get it on, find the pleasure, stop to think, all goes wrong

Shut up, shut up, every time I fuck it up
You'll be there to stand and stare oh yeah

Keep it going, a test for you, on the edge, endless possibility
High on this life, don't fail me now, restricted vision but see it through

Lose my mind tonight, I don't wanna know 'cos I aint been told
Track Name: No Life
Greed takes us over, our will to survive
They get all the money, we get no piece
Eat don't replace, evaluate
They take all the glory give us no peace.

No life - everything's alright, burning up the sky every night

You take over and set the world free
Help us to survive and set the world free
We swim for a living, gonna swim for ever
There are no limits, yourself over others

Eat don't replace, evaluate
They assume the power, give us no peace
Track Name: In The End
Get up too late, the weekend's dawning, but I'm working at the store
Vacant stare in the mirror, vacant stare is all that's left of me
Light a cigarette and I catch them later.

I'm getting out

The weekend's gone, I transcend into normality, another day, one more dollar
Day to day don't get me off, day to day it pissed me off
Light a cigarette and I catch them later.

In the end you'll find me there

Weekend's gone, fractured state is all that's left of me, another day at the same fucking store
Day to day I don't get high, day to day don't get me far
At the end of this shiftI will catch them never

In the end you'll find me there, drink a bottle, getting pissed, I just don't care
