Track Name: Breaking uP
all those lies and double speak
its clear now that you never cared about me
and now your tongue is just as black as oil
the apple eaten, and this edens been spoiled

and now were coated in a layer of truth
stop making excuses cos this is absolute
im waiting for someone to wake me from this dream
for a news report to tell me its not bad as it seems
but it is, and it just keeps flowing.


Baby Please, can you Bring me Peace
youve no credibility, our loves been a catastrophe


god look what a mess youve made
you cut too deep, just to demonstrate
our appetite is insatiable
and the damage is done, its irreversible tonight
Track Name: Internet Courage (a song for the haters)
Sit down behind my computer screen
Nothing I type really matters
My fingers fly across the keys
Each comment an unsharpened dagger

I've no respect for the facts
No ettiqute and no tact

I'm getting drunk on internet courage tonight
Ill talk some trash, tear people down, and start a fight
I'm all condescension , it gets me lots of attention
So im drinking deep of internet courage

I've got this anonymity,
And no one else has feelings
I wear a cloak of insensitivity
I'll blind side them when they read it

I feel good making others feel bad
They'll never know who i am

And when I mock something thing
That they can not control
I feel better about myself
I may be a total tool, but I firmly believe
That positivity is for the weak

He got drunk on internet courage, but why?
He gave in to anger, it leads to the dark side
Don't be a hater, you'll just end up like darth vader
We'd all much rather be obi wan
So come on back where you belong
Quit sneering now and sing a happy song
Track Name: First Day Of My Life
This is the first day of my life
Swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
They're spreading blankets on the beach

Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don't know where I am
I don't know where I've been
But I know where I want to go

And so I thought I'd let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you'd just woke up
And you said "this is the first day of my life
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you
But now I don't care I could go anywhere with you
And I'd probably be happy"

So if you want to be with me
With these things there's no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me
