Track Name: Confined
Wish for Hollywood love stories
All their pride and all their glory
But the truth is they're just dreams
What we wished could not come true
In the end we could not break through
It was a wall we could not break down
Could not break down

It felt so right, It felt so clear
I felt invincible, I felt no fear
Then love was tainted, and dripped to the ground
Just so quickly, we lost all sound

Controlled by the hands of fate
What we loved then we now hate
I guess its all what it seems
Bittersweet will be the times
Twisted are all of these lines
Too long is this humble rundown
Humble Rundown

It felt so right, It felt so clear
I felt invincible, I felt no fear
Then love was tainted, and dripped to the ground
Just so quickly, we lost all sound

It felt so right, It felt so clear
I felt invincible, I felt no fear
Then love was tainted, and dripped to the ground
Just so quickly, we lost all sound
Track Name: And Now
Now you're lying all by yourself
After giving up, and losing someone else
And now you are trying to kill yourself
Cause its seems that nothing else helps

When you finally see that face in the mirror
But those eyes looking back aren't the same
When everything gets a bit clearer
Who you were doesn't remain

And now, and now, and now, and now you get the picture
Somehow, somehow, somehow, somehow you start to miss her
And now, and now, and now, and now the memory's a blur
(You need to) Allow, allow, allow, allow yourself to move on
Cause now the feeling is gone

Now you're trying to find a way to cope
After losing it all, there's no sense of hope
And now you look for the words, but only come up and choke
Cause all your thoughts burn up in a cloud of smoke

Passing by the forgotten face in the mirror
Glistening eyes that still show the pain
When the time comes a bit nearer
Who you are will leave again

And now, and now, and now, and now you get the picture
Somehow, somehow, somehow, somehow you were misheard
And now, and now, and now, and now you long to kiss her
(You need to) Allow, allow, allow, allow yourself to move on
Cause now the timing is wrong

There is no where left to go, you gotta stay and bide your time
Your out here on your own, gotta get her off your mind
Focus on yourself, gotta find someone else to blame
Cause there's no point in manning up when they've all gone away

And now, and now, and now, and now forget the picture
Somehow, somehow, somehow, somehow go out and find her
And now, and now, and now, and now you can kiss her
(You need to) Allow, allow, allow, allow you two to move on
Cause now your time has come
Track Name: December
How do we survive, when we love to be alive
Who do we seek, when we're feeling weak

Do I turn, and look away
Can I run, can I stay?

I look for you
But you've gone away
I wish I could say, I wish I could see you one last time
I look for you
But you've gone away
Cause you were taken away, on a December day from me

Where am I safe, should I have faith
Is it all wrong, can you hear this song
Can I be free, will anger control me
Do you understand the pain? That what's lost, has no gain

Do I turn, and look away
Can I run, can I stay?

I look for you
But you've gone away
I wish I could say, I wish I could see you one last time
I look for you
But you've gone away
Cause you were taken away, on a December day from me

From me
Track Name: G.I.T. (Generic Indie Trash)
Where I’m at I always see Past things I’ve done that hang over me A different man, a different view In search for anything brand new Gave up strength that I seemed to find Even when it seemed to inspire my mind If it felt right I wasn’t sure And if it hurt I seemed to want it more Because I ran to look in the mirror To pull you nearer, and stand above it all I found a way to release the envy Control the levy, and embrace the fall Loving friend let me tell you a secret I feel no sense not one bit of regret Palm in palm to embrace the hike In thoughts and prayers that are so lifelike God knows that I’ve been blessed With friends that pull me from the mess That help me up when I’m feeling small And answer to me when I need to call Now I know how to live again And put good use to time I spend Use the tools that life provides And turn away from any downsides Because I ran to look in the mirror To pull you nearer, and stand above it all I found a way to release the envy Control the levy, and embrace the fall Loving friend let me tell you a secret, I feel no sense not one bit of regret Palm in palm to embrace the hike, In thoughts and prayers that are so lifelike Pull you nearer, stand above it all Pull you nearer rise above the fall Piece back these mirrors shattered glass back to one Build back this silhouette, and push me to run Because I ran to look in the mirror To pull you nearer, and stand above it all I found a way to release the envy Control the levy, and embrace the fall

Embrace the fall
Embrace the fall
Stand above it all
Track Name: Keep Your Thoughts to Yourself (The Saunders Song)
Welcome home to a place you've never seen
Welcome to this place they call a machine
A perfect circle of all you've been taught
Lives of loved ones could end in a single shot

Everything you've learned, make sure you use it well
And don't let others drag you to hell
Send your pain below, give away those thoughts of mine
And when your feeling better, make sure you redefine

Don't mistake those lies you make
'Cause this world will eat you alive
Humble your mind and peace you will find
Keep your thoughts to yourself

Bow your head to a higher power above
A power that can be so full of hate and also love
A simple question, where do you belong
And even ask yourself who cares if you're wrong

Everything you've learned, make sure you use it well
And don't let others drag you to hell
Send your pain below, give away those thoughts of mine
And when your feeling better, make sure you redefine

Don't mistake those lies you make
'Cause this world will eat you alive
Humble your mind and peace you will find
Keep your thoughts to yourself
Track Name: Only One
Life, sometimes it's all you got
But for some people it is not
Time, they get to spend wasting away
Putting off their problems to other days
Some people have ,got to work them off
But still worry of ,getting by
It's a hard line, but they take it in stride
(it) really makes ,you think about

Time can be short or long
But no matter what
It's what we got
So use it while you're strong
We've got to make it last
So when we're gone,
You'll hear the songs,
and make it better from the past

I see them struggle in the streets
The people who have to fight to eat
Time they spend while wasting away
All their problems are in making it to the next day
#Some people have ,it made free
But still want it ,easily
Don't know the hard line, won't lend a hand
To realize, the value of

Time can be short or long
But no matter what,
It's what we got
So use it while you're strong
We've got to make it last
So when we're gone,
You'll hear the songs,
and make it better from the past

They preach their rules, they make their laws
They're men you choose, but don't see the flaws
fix it now, 'fore the world goes gray
Given strength, allow cure to pain

How can you live with yourself as the population dies

Our time can be short or long
But no matter what,
It's what we got
So use it while you're strong
We've got to make it last
So when we're gone,
You'll hear the songs,
and make it better from the past

Cure my pain, don't waste my time
