Track Name: Feel It
I’ve started branching outwards
My mind is coming up
I’m questioned by the doubters
Well come and have a look
I’m on another level
Stood on the highest ledge
I’m pushing on the pedal
And lapping all the rest

Feel it
It’s all you need
Feel it
Just come with me
Feel it
And you will see
Or you will never know
(x2)

You take me to the rooftops
I’m sitting on the sun
I feel the heat wave coming
And it has just begun
You’ve really got me going
Enter the golden arch
I’ve waited for a lifetime
When is it gonna start?

Feel it
It’s all you need
Feel it
Just come with me
Feel it
And you will see
Or you will never know
(x2)
Track Name: Hide Behind The Night
As you slip into the shade and hide behind the night
The end has surely settled into sight
It’s hard to differentiate between the enemies
And those who claim to only come in peace

I don’t really know what’s real
It all comes down to how I feel
I’m losing track of wrong and right
The truth has faded out of sight
Where did all my morals go?
I guess that we will never know
I’m losing track of who I am

Why so unpredictable and always on the edge?
Balancing with one foot off the ledge
Waiting for an opening to paper up the cracks
Darting through and never looking back

I don’t really know what’s real
It all comes down to how I feel
I’m losing track of wrong and right
The truth has faded out of sight
Where did all my morals go?
I guess that we will never know
I’m losing track of who I am
Track Name: Meant To Be
You know sometimes you’re gonna feel like life can be your worst enemy
‘Cause it’ll pick you up then throw you down and leave you begging for mercy
Don’t ever try to understand it ‘cause it’s just the way it’s meant to be
You spend your whole life earning money when the best things in your life are free
You go through ecstasy, sympathy, controversy to tragedy,
Oh yeah

Don’t ever try to understand it ‘cause it’s just the way it’s meant to be
No don’t you try to understand it ‘cause it’s just the way it’s meant to be

So who am I to be ungrateful for the things that I have in my life?
When there are people who’d give anything to have a bed for just one night
Well don’t it put it into perspective so I’ll never say it’s not alright
Yeah it’s a crazy little journey but you’ve got to stay upon that road
You can take a little detour just as long as you know where it goes

But if you have to stop you start again ‘cause that is just the way it goes
Yeah if you have to stop you start again ‘cause that is just the way it goes

You know sometimes you’re gonna feel like life can be your worst enemy
‘Cause it’ll pick you up then throw you down and leave you begging for mercy
Don’t ever try to understand it ‘cause it’s just the way it’s meant to be
You spend your whole life earning money when the best things in your life are free
You go through ecstasy, sympathy, controversy to tragedy,
Oh yeah

Don’t ever try to understand it ‘cause it’s just the way it’s meant to be
No don’t you try to understand it ‘cause it’s just the way it’s meant to be
Don’t ever try to understand it ‘cause it’s just the way it’s meant to be
Track Name: Under Lock And Key
You are desirous of much more than I can give
And I am through with my failed attempts to live up to your image
I’m not your fool or a figure in your picture perfect scene
There are no rules that I must abide by no they’re all in your dreams

I’m always rushing around
But I’m rooted to the ground
i am just the one you’ve found
Not the one you really need
And I need some space to see
Through the animosity
And the way that you hold me
Under your lock and key

I am not the one you need I’m just the one you see
There are plenty more stood behind me
I am not the one you want I’m just the first you’ve found
Won’t you take the time to look around

Sit on the window ledge I won’t give you my concern
I’ll never fit into your deluded fiction sprinkled world
Can you not see that I’ll never sweep you off your tired feet
Ultimately it will end in tears and they won’t be shed by me

I’m always rushing around
But I’m rooted to the ground
i am just the one you’ve found
Not the one you really need
And I need some space to see
Through the animosity
And the way that you hold me
Under your lock and key

I am not the one you need I’m just the one you see
There are plenty more stood behind me
I am not the one you want I’m just the first you’ve found
Won’t you take the time to look around

I am not the one you need I’m just the one you see
There are plenty more stood behind me
I am not the one you want I’m just the first you’ve found
Won’t you take the time to look
Won’t you take the time to look
Won’t you take the time to look around
Track Name: Let Me Out
I’ve got all these premonitions running through my mind
And seventeen of them are running out of time
I feel reluctant to close my eyes
Incase I see your shadow beneath the midnight skies
Everyone is telling me to rest my thoughts
They look at me as if to say he’s lost the plot
but little do they know you’re pulling all the strings
Leaving me totally helpless to the state I’m in

Yeah you’ve got me in your palm
And it’s everything I need
Even if I felt the urge
There is no way I could leave

No I couldn’t leave
I can’t see baby
No I can’t breathe

I’ve spent hours trying to convince myself I’m done
That I may aswell just spend my time chasing the sun
At the pivotal old turning point of left or right
I always find myself following your light
I’m really sick and tired of the games you play
I’m gloriously terrified of what you’ll say
When I feel my conscience telling me today’s the day
Will it end in bliss or all become dismay

Yeah you’ve got me in your palm
And it’s everything I need
Even if I felt the urge
There is no way I could leave

No I couldn’t leave
I can’t see baby
No I can’t breathe

So I’ve taken it upon myself
To get out baby
And that’s it we’re through
A thousand miles from the wicked things you do

Let me out baby let me see the sun again
Let me feel the morning breeze soothe my tired brain
Let me out baby can’t you see I’ve nothing left
Let me go up to the surface and take one last breath
Let me out baby please
Oh won’t you let me out
Track Name: Unattainable
I was cursing my bad luck as I walked down the lengthy lane,
Which comforted my conscience and my mind,
Alone as I lamented the bad choices I had made,
I had not an idea what I’d find,
But stood there in the distance a silhouette of solitude,
A shadow in the sinking summer sun,
I felt the curiosity lead me down the path,
Within seconds I knew something had begun

Why do we always want what’s unattainable?
And why do we always need
What isn’t gainable?


She hadn’t moved an inch since I had cast my eyes on her,
But still she didn’t notice I was near,
With every step I took she seemed to move further away,
Her beauty like the rain was crystal clear,
A strong magnetic force seemed to pull my weary feet,
Our two opposite symbols drawing close,
I knew that I was negative and her sign was a plus,
I knew that it was me whom she had chose,

Why do we always want what’s unattainable?
And why do we always need
What isn’t gainable?

I was cursing my bad luck as I walked down the lengthy lane,
Which comforted my conscience and my mind,
Track Name: I Want You To Know
I want you to know
I want you to know
Just what you did to me
I want you to know
You left me stranded, oh so stranded
On this lonely road

You stole my trust
It’s torturous
Locate your heart baby
Now that’s a must
You took my loving, all my loving
And turned it to dust

How do you morph into your alter ego
Like Jekyll goes to Hyde
Without a warning without letting me know
Or giving me a sign
I guess this day has been coming, inevitably
I thought that you would be different, but obviously
I was wrong baby
You left me to bleed

All those memories
That I once believed
Would keep me company
Always baby for eternity
But with one night of destruction
Baby girl you took them from me

Why did you do it babe?
You hurt me so bad
You knocked me down baby
You made me feel sad
And I don’t know why baby
What we had
Why i want it back

Alright yeah
Track Name: Danger
Well she's the perfect picture, she's well aware of that
She grabs a hold of fiction and she turns it into fact
Money is not her reason, she's not into breaking hearts
She'll grab your indecision and she'll rip it into half

She's never on her own
She always sets the tone
She's the girl who's seen the world but never had a home
She makes a fool of time
It's always on her side
She's the girl who breaks the law but never done no time

Don't ask her any questions, she'll never kiss and tell
Never becomes dependent on anybody else
She's followed by the gazes, of everybody's eyes
Constantly in the limelight but she never even tries

She's never on her own
She always sets the tone
She's the girl who's seen the world but never had a home
She makes a fool of time
It's always on her side
She's the girl who breaks the law but never done no time
Track Name: Hurt You
Although I know I’ve made mistakes
That haunt me everyday
Just know I never meant to hurt you
And I can see it on your face
You long for yesterday
But know I never will desert you

So i guess it’s time
To say goodbye
But I know I’ll see you again
You are my only friend
Just know I never meant to hurt you

Let’s take our minds away from here
Somewhere that we see clear
And crack a smile just like we used to
‘Cause after all that’s been and gone
The road that I’ve been on
Just leads me right back here toward you

So i guess it’s time
To say goodbye
But I know I’ll see you again
You are my only friend
Just know I never meant to hurt you
Track Name: Don't Let It Get You Down
Sometimes you have to bite your tongue
And take the bullets out of your gun
Sometimes retreat makes the most sense
When you are sitting on the fence
It seems statistics rule the world
And opinions of teenaged girls
But if you wanna make it here
It won’t take blood or sweat or tears

And everyone’s made up their minds
Before the singer’s sung their lines
But please don’t let it get you down
One day it will come back around

Oh and if somebody told you
To take a plunge off a bridge well I bet you would
Oh and it just goes to show
Nothing will ever be quite good enough

The so called experts write reviews
On what the kids are calling cool
But somewhere something has been lost
Between Oxford and office blocks
But have they ever wrote a song
About the place that they came from?
Let me make one thing crystal clear
They tell us what we want to hear

And everyone’s made up their minds
Before the singer’s sung their lines
But please don’t let it get you down
One day it will come back around

Oh and if somebody told you
To take a plunge off a bridge well I bet you would
Oh and it just goes to show
Nothing will ever be quite good enough
