Track Name: Romantic Discourage
If I could be, myself again
Not so lost, in my own fears
That everyone, I ever love,
Will leave me here, again eventually

We are all the same, it’s all we have
It’s all we want to hold on to
Now, we’re the same
And everyone who ever loved is broken

The second time I dared to feel
Cracked me again but now I know
That anyone who ever dreams
Of happiness, cannot procrastinate

We are all the same, it’s what we’ve got
It’s all we have to hold on to
Now, we’re the same
Because everyone I ever loved is broken

We are all the same, it’s what we’ve got
It’s all we have to hold on to
Now, we’re the same
Because everyone I ever loved is broken
Track Name: There's Always Another Summer
You can’t give, up on, everything this time
The stars in the sky, won’t decline forever

Hold on to hope, don’t regret what you have not
Hold on to hope, don’t regret what you have not

This low will give in to a high
This low will give in to a high

Don’t take the little things for granted
Don’t take the little things for granted
Don’t take the little things for granted
Thank you
Don’t take the little things for granted
Don’t take the little things for granted
Thank you
Track Name: Our Hands Clasped Tight
I can be, I can be, I can be all that you wanted
Just stay with me, stay with me, stay with me, give me that moment
Because I can be, I can be, I can be all that you wanted
Just stay with me, stay with me, stay with me, give me that moment

Our hands clasped tight lit by tree lights
Our hands clasped tight lit by tree lights
I will be there when you need me
Our hands clasped tight lit by tree lights

You could be, you could be, you are far too unforgiving
And we tried, and we tried but we were destined to fail
Because I can be, I can be, I can be all that you wanted
Just stay with me, stay with me, stay with me, give me that moment

Our hands clasped tight lit by tree lights
Our hands clasped tight lit by tree lights
I will be there when you need me
Our hands clasped tight lit by tree lights

Take me hand, take my hand, take my hand, trust in me because
I can be, I can be, I can be, I can be everything just
Take me hand, take my hand, take my hand, trust in me because
I can be, I can be, I can be, I can be everything you need

Now this means nothing
Now you mean nothing
Now this means nothing
Now you mean nothing
Now this means nothing
Now you mean nothing to me
Track Name: Sometimes Ever After
I am always going to be something
Less than happy, lost inside every
Single emotion, exploding in my head
All contending to be heard at once

We will always be this way?
Not lost inside, thoughts of yesterdays

Will we always be lost in ourselves
Something joyous interrupts the path
Of woeful dysfunction, sometimes ever after
Means happy after all this

We will always be this way?
Not lost inside, thoughts of yesterdays

All these thoughts, explode at once
All these thoughts, explode at once
All these thoughts, explode at once
All these thoughts, explode
Track Name: Remember Always
I’ve marked myself too many times
Over each hopeless decline
For every one, I loved and lost again
and again and again and again

You were the one that I thought
Could hold on to me, in these bleak moments
I know better now, you don’t mean a thing
These marks will never appear again

Remember always what we’ve lost
Remember always what we’ve lost
Remember always what we’ve lost
Remember always what we’ve lost
You don’t feel anything anyway

You were the one that I thought
Could hold on to me, in these bleak moments
I know better now, you don’t mean a thing
These marks will never appear again

Remember always what we’ve lost
Remember always what we’ve lost
Remember always what we’ve lost
Remember always what we’ve lost
And I will never love again
And I Will never hope again
And I will never love again
And I Will never hope again
You don’t feel anything anyway

Remember always what we’ve lost
Remember always what we’ve lost
Remember always what we’ve lost
Remember always what we’ve lost
And I will never love again
And I Will never hope again
And I will never love again
And I Will never hope again
You don’t feel anything anyway
Track Name: All Hope Is Gone
Every word I ever tried to say
Is wrong for, I’m wrong now
Every fear I ever dared to feel
Angered you, I’m wrong now

Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing
Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing
Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing
Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing

Every Hope I ever dared to dream
Was wrong for you, I’m wrong now
Every word I ever tried to speak
Was wrong for you, so wrong

Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing
Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing
Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing
Still we fall apart, it’s always over nothing

Any chance we ever had to make it,
Fell apart now all hope is gone
Every time I ever had to fake, this
Fell apart now all hope is gone
Any chance we ever had to make it,
Fell apart now all hope is gone
Because every hope you ever try to break will
Fall apart now all hope is gone
Track Name: Hoaxed Elitism Is The New Black
You try too hard to be all ‘Cobain’
Blame the masses for arts mistakes
By trying to be hypercritical
You joined a demographic of negativity

Being down on everything, is the new commercial trend
Being down on everything, is the new commercial trend
Being down on everything, is the new commercial trend
Being down on everything, is the new ‘sold out’

It’s cool to ‘e-spout’ about how Christmas sold out
Commerciality, has no credibility
By trying to be hypercritical
You joined the new trend
Of trad dismissive statements

Being down on everything, is the new commercial trend
Being down on everything, is the new commercial trend
Being down on everything, is the new ‘sold out’
When did we all start using, the word trend anyway?

Come as you are, but come with your mouth shut
Come as you are, but come with your mouth shut

Being down on everything, is the new commercial trend
Being down on everything, is the new commercial trend
Stop trying to make everything you say some artistic statement
Stop making everything, so pretentious
Track Name: Your Immutable Being Erased Idolity
There is that moment in your world
You meet someone, there’s a place called home
And everything you thought, mattered doesn't make sense anymore
But still we always find a way, to compromise our minds again
And everything you thought, mattered doesn't make sense anymore

And everytime you laid the blame, on me when this world crashed down again
And everything I thought, had stopped opens up once again
But still you always find a way, to twist my words around again
And everything I thought, I loved are now all the things I hate

So please don't say it's nothing, so please don't say it's nothing
So please don't say it's nothing, that would break my heart over again
So please don't say it's nothing, so please don't say it's nothing
So please don't say it's nothing, that would break my heart over again

So promise me that this will change
So promise me that this will change
So promise me that this will change
So promise me that this will change
