Track Name: We Changed (pre prod)
On and On We Change
Track Name: Going Down
Well I messed up with the words to say
Cause nothing seems to fit you on
I swallow pride, and as your best friend
This was the best I could design

So I stepped out of the line and grasp for something true
But cigarettes was all you had
I miss my friends and maybe miss myself
Alright

We all make mistakes that we want to forget
We all make mistakes that we want to forget
But It feels like its getting worst, now there’s a line and I remember,

It’s going down, it’s going down
And I won’t be back around
It’s going down, it’s going down
And I'm frowning at the signs
All these things I wished I'd learn
Only wait for another turn
It’s going down, it’s going down
And I know, I'll never be back around

I just turned 20, and it seems so easy to everyone
And if I’m carrying the weight of the world,
I’ll only have weak reasons in the end

And I won’t let you go, but will you stop smoking all that pot?
You’re not the guy you were
You're losing what you had in your eyes
Alright

We all made mistakes that we’ll never forget
We all made mistakes that we’ll never forget
And it feels like, it’s getting out the worst of you,
Please just remember

Where is the rage you had?
Where is the guy that used to face the world with a smile?
If I had some arguments, I’d cursed the walls
For keeping me alive, but we've grown different
And like many friends, we’re getting lost in time

It’s going down…
I hate life for getting me, off all these bridges we would have need
I can’t take back what I said, but I still miss my friend instead
It’s going down and I know, we’ll never be like before
Track Name: I Am My Own Scene
I won't, take a step to
The indifference that reign over this Country and I
Won't waste one more second,
I won't take the easy road
To fill my lung with doubts
I won't struggle with deceptions

I never trusted anyone and that's the way it goes
I never felt so lost
But I rather be myself, than slow these, 4 chords down

With you, I feel better,
Yeah with you I see the light
You help me, to make them understand,
Why I'm all fucked up inside
I won't give up
Cause hope is all I need
It's all I need

I never trusted anyone and that's the way it goes
Minus this shame, when I breath
I want everybody to believe

With you, I feel better,
Yeah with you I see the light
You help me, to make them understand,
Why I'm all fucked up inside
I won't give up
Cause hope is all I need
It's all I need

Take a step to freedom
And please help me heal the blind
Help me find the words to say
So I can tell them
Help me fight ignorance
Let us be the media
Oh, please help me give more than I can give
Cause I know that without you, I wouldn't be here tonight

With you, I feel better,
Yeah with you I see the light
You help me, to make them understand,
Why I'd kill for what I like
I won't give up on you
Cause hope is all I need
And I know that it can be
Stronger than anything
Track Name: 261 Pounds Close to Love
I've failed to explain many things in my life
So these lines I wrote to your cell phone last night
Were mostly pretentions,
Mostly aversion
To the guy, I became these past few months

I don’t like what you meant to me
I don’t like anything that’s happening now,
It’s just running through my head,
I didn't want to change
And if you want to, want to hear the truth
I never felt anything for you
I was just trying to pretend, that I didn’t changed

It’s god damn hard to act like a man
When everybody has seemed to let go
I’m out of the mould, but closer than I though
I pretended to be a saint
I failed at pretending more than I am
So please excuses me,
Cause I am a victim, of a part of me I thought I knew

Though I wanted, though I needed it so bad
But I’m not the same guy

So here’s your song,
Fuck chemistry,
Write down these words, you shouldn’t love an asshole like me
Honestly, from the bottom of my heart

I don’t like what you meant to me
I don’t like anything that’s happening now,
It’s just running through my head,
I must admit that I changed
Track Name: Coming Home
I worked on it, took my time
Built on patience this second line
I never though any further than my feelings
In my head, it was just making up the facing
Of the one I am outside

I'm just a fan, of every punk rock talent
Like a mirror without a frame
Though I worked hard it's just for me
This music is my life, so fuck the industry
Understand that I don't give a damn

I'm doing this just for fun
But life is fun
I don't need no reasons why
When I have this shit I feel alive
Like coming home
Yeah, I'm coming home

Everyone needs a stranger to understand him
But we'll both never understand
Why passion never lasts
And why broken hearts we always seek for
Singing things just makes them easier than they are

So go and throw me down
I'll never win an award for what I'm doing
But I've found my own
And I'm coming home
