Track Name: Best For Last
And I will fly real fuckin high
I'll make sure that our worlds will collide
And straight into the ground you will go
Like the sharpest edged death arrow
Realize who you're fuckin with
Soon, you'll be underneath my grip

I'll save my best for last! (x4)

As you trade me in, he wins
Haven't been the same since 18

I'm in a prisoner in your cage
You must know I will escape (x3)
Track Name: Cure
I don't know and I don't care who you wanna be
And I don't know which way to go from here you see
So walk away, walk away from me
And I'll be there for you to

Be, the one who ran away from me
And I don't care where you are gonna be
So, leave me before I tell you that I'm not sure
That you will be my one and only cure
My only cure

So, be my friend till the very, very end
And tell me everything that I should want to hear
Don't be my friend till the very, very end and I'll act like this never, ever began

You're my life support
Stay by my side
I've never asked for more
But to keep me alive
Track Name: Fall
Start the day with lasting worries
My anxious nerves lead me to hurry
As all these walls lie in my way
All I know is that today I won't

Fall! I will not fall! I will stand up! I will not crawl!

(No not today)
This is fight or flight, and I don't know why
But, I will try to win this time
(Buh-Buh-Breath!)

As waves and nods make you a friend
The social impersonal change rose again
As the fake make their way to the front of the line
It's just a matter of time before I

Fall! I will not fall! I will stand up! I will not crawl!

I will not, I will not, I will not, Fall!
Track Name: Aspirations
So they look down on your aspirations
Forget your trials and your tribulations
Lead yourself to who you are
Reject the notion that you won't get far

It's your aspirations
It's your destination
It's your aspirations
It's a revolution

So they think you're a loner
Somewhat of a stoner
Backed up in a corner of a new world order
Unable to mend from conforming trends
Unable to mend from conforming trends

So they look down on your aspirations
Fuck society and it's limitations
Lead yourself to who you are
Reject the notion that you won't get far
Track Name: Story Untold
Take a look in my clueless head and tell me what's on my mind
Dream of ways to interchange so you can intertwine
Dream of ways to make it on your own
Rewrite your story untold
And nobody believes that I can succeed
I don't really care 'cuz this is not their dream
And I'll find a way to prove them wrong

As you continue to look up to the sky
until you've reached it
Take a look at how I feel inside
'cuz I know what it takes

Take the time to make up your mind
Underneath your heart you'll find all the pain you've left inside
And I know they're all the same, but to you, you are to blame
Underneath the unlocked doors, you will cry in the rain (You will find your way)

And I never thought I would meet someone like you
We'll live in the moment, we will seek the night through
And I never wanna be alone again
Track Name: Brainwashed
What is this world coming to, where there's no meaning behind the truth?
I don't think I can take this anymore.
The future of this generation makes my mind so sore.

Everyone's the same yet certainly not sane
Is this some kind of joke or a really bad game? (Woah, woah, woah, woah)
There's not much hope in my way. No reason to stay and wait.
I think everyone's cause, it is lost, or maybe they are all just brainwashed.

You're Brainwashed! (x4)
Identify Yourself! (x4) And die!

I think everyone's cause, it is lost,
or maybe you are all just brainwashed
Track Name: Who Cares?
The clocks are tickin in my mind
I wish that I could turn back time

Who cares anyways, I can't afford that broken heart
Who cares anyways, I care for that broken heart
Who cares anyways, I can't afford that broken heart
Who cares anyways, I care for

(Woo-ooh) x4

Who cares anyways, I can't afford!
Who cares anyways, I care for!
Who cares anyways, I can't afford!
Who cares anyways, I care for!
(Ah-ah!) x3 (Ah!)
