Track Name: Fly Away
I stay way from the words in your head,
‘Cause I don’t want to know what you regret.
All along you’ve claimed your place in time,
But improvement doesn’t show a sign!

You’ve got to fly away
From the wreckage that you’ve left when you turned away
You’ve got to stay away
Start today by living your life for yourself!

In your mind it never rests.
Put away those thoughts that put you to the test.
Think of everything you’ve left behind,
It’s the only beauty you will find!

You’ve got to fly away
From the wreckage that you’ve left when you turned away
You’ve got to stay away
Start today by living your life for yourself!

Until you take the reins,
Nothing will happen and nothing will change.
Now is the time to step to the plate and swing it away

You’ve got to fly away
From the wreckage that you’ve left when you turned away
You’ve got to stay away
Start today by living your life for yourself!
Track Name: No Paradise
Looking at the billboards they place in front of me,
Seems we’re all seduced by this mad complacency.
Everything’s so soft like a whisper in the night,
No one will break through it harbors all my freight!

No paradise! No paradise!
It’s all diversion you’ll be marginalized!
No paradise! No paradise!
We dream away with all the perfect lies!

All your peers will tell you that you are out of step,
Because you question them, and won’t comply.
Society’s grip, stretches over you,
To make no more choice, do what they do!

No paradise! No paradise!
It’s all diversion you’ll be marginalized!
No paradise! No paradise!
We dream away with all the perfect lies!

The information highway now tells you what is right,
No one’s left objective, we fight about the price
Deserted from all dreams that you once knew,
Too lost without direction, too lost to renew!

No paradise! No paradise!
It’s all diversion you’ll be marginalized!
No paradise! No paradise!
We dream away with all the perfect lies!
It’s all diversion you’ll be marginalized!
Track Name: Put Through
Your heart of glass is fragile and the cracks are clear from afar!
How much longer will you keep faking the real person that you are?
You’ve tried to love but only learnt to accept,
All the hidden secrets that you kept, and choices you’ll regret.

Please do know that this is just the past!
Those thoughts will only haunt you, so please accept!
That you've made mistakes, we all did, and will do,
Don’t forget, it’s your life, it’s up to you!

They fucked you over like you were their stepping-stone.
Your skin is thick, but I want to see the feelings you haven’t shown.
People have been treating you like you were just a joke.
And in fear I wonder how much hateful word you need before you choke!

Please do know that this is just the past!
Those thoughts will only haunt you, so please accept!
That you've made mistakes, we all did, and will do,
Don’t forget, it’s your life, it’s up to you!

I’ll be there when you need me to, but you have to tell me what you’ve been put through!
Track Name: False Calls
Who are you to judge me for my faults? After all the lies you’ve told!
Why would I need to apologize? Trailed and judged in a traitors eye!
You’ve got no rights to speak your vow!
And apology won’t help you now!

I have to answer these false calls!
For the sake of your revenge! But I tear down the walls
I have to answer these false calls!
But I can’t care anymore.

Tell me again how I am to blame, for faults that you made just the same.
Egoistic for you moment of fame, dragging me down for your own gain!
You’ve got no rights to speak your vow!
And apology won’t help you now!

I have to answer these false calls!
For the sake of your revenge! But I tear down the walls
I have to answer these false calls!
But I can’t care anymore.

I don’t care anymore!
I still don’t care!

I have to answer these false calls!
For the sake of your revenge!
I have to answer these false calls!
But I can’t care anymore.

I have to answer these false calls!
For the sake of your revenge! But I tear down the walls.
I have to answer these false calls!
But I can’t care anymore.
Track Name: Bare Feet
There was once this kid that I knew,
He used to be positive, he used to be old school.
But sadly for him did the time pay its price.
Now he’s deprived.
By his own lies,
He didn’t listen to advice, and let his dealer roll his dice!

His grip on his life was gone!
And he knew it seemed lost, but he held on.
Everyone deserves a fresh start.
And he remembered, cold hands, warm heart!

I told the kid to do better than this, I called him to mind.
A life of abuse, all the drugs that he used.
And the friends that he lost.
He told me he tried but failed over again,
But remain and restrain won’t drain away his pain!

His grip on his life was gone!
And he knew it seemed lost, but he held on.
Everyone deserves a fresh start.
And he remembered, cold hands, warm heart!

I helped him get rid of his bad habits.
To live a better life.
He never thanked me, I was okay with that.
Until I found him in the alley where he once sat.

Back to the start,
Forgot what I thought
And left him for dead,
In the alley he sat!

His grip on his life is now gone!
And I know it’s all lost but I held on!
Everyone deserves one fresh start!
And I remember his cold hands, on my warm heart.

Cold hands! Warm heart!
