Track Name: Sunshine Pizza Friends
We’re not sorry, not sorry, not sorry
For the way we move
Yeah, we all saw you bail as I came down and we’ll do anything we choose
We’re not sorry, not sorry, not sorry
For the things we say
And I know that you need to believe, that you’re the best in town
watch us prove you wrong

You won’t drag me down
You won’t drag me down
You won’t drag me down

So take another look at these papers
The ones that gave us from when you were nameless
But the ink has run, now your page has cracked
And everyone knows, we can see what you lack
Try to stand up, with the rest of us
When did it happen?
When did you lose touch?
When you’re trying not to be faithless,
Don’t get carried away, carried away

We are not fakes, we’re just liars
We’re all just kids on trial
And it feels like, like we mean it
We’re all just boys in the band, sing!
We’re all just trying to fit in
And it feels like, yeah it feels like…

You won’t drag me down
You won’t drag me down
You won’t drag me down

We are not fakes, we’re just liars
We’re all just kids on trial
And it feels like, like we mean it
We’re all just boys in the band, sing!
We’re all just trying to fit in
And it feels like, yeah it feels like, it’s the best thing!
Track Name: Fingers Crossed
I think I’m addicted to these city lights
To the names and places the different faces they’re burning like fireflies
From the top of my thinking, where I can’t even picture
When you’re not the one and I’m all alone

Your words are like waking from the saddest dream
And I’m falling absurd, I’m not out, but in love and I’m starting to believe
A repeat, of the last night, when I can’t even picture
When you’re all, I have, and I’m not alone
ooh yeah!

I wish, we were the same as we were yesterday,
And as I bleed these lines that are dripping out from this pen, like I want it over
Well I can’t break it easily but it’s kind of over.

I wish, we were the same as we were yesterday,
Yeah I wish, we were the same as we were yesterday.
I wish, we were the same as we were yesterday,
And as I bleed these lines, right from this pen like lies,
I want it over, I want it over!
Track Name: If Only You'd Stay
I'm broken, and everyone knows it,
I've been running in circles, I think everyone sees them,
I need you, a little more than I want you,
And I want this, a little more than I needed it too,
And I, needed a little bit more of anything but you,
You said you're willing to dream, then get ready to suffer,
'Cuz I, I never saw the plus side in waiting,
I, need this now (This is it!)

CHORUS
I loved you to pieces,
But you're never gonna see me come back around.
And you said you're leaving if I need this,
But you never gave me chance to work it out.

(Woah-oh-oh-oh)
You never gave us a chance to work it out
(Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh)

And when it's broken, I don't wanna fix it now,
And when it's lacking, and I need it the conversation turns to bleeding out,
I can't breath with this, light on me, so I'm leaving here,
Why don't you think about it, take your hand out, save yourself.
You wanna leave but you dunno what you're gonna do,
You wanna go, but you don't know how to try,
And we just can't afford to pass the time away,
This is a million pointed star, when I needed you to help,
You just left me hanging.

I loved you to pieces,
But you're never gonna see me come back around.
And you said you're leaving if I need this,
But you never gave me chance to work it out.

(Woah-oh-oh-oh)
You never gave us a chance to work it out
(Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh)
You never gave us a chance to work it out

ACAPELLA
I loved you to pieces,
But you're never gonna see me come back around.
And you said you're leaving if I need this,
But you never gave me chance, can we work it out?
I need to work this out.
I loved you to pieces,
But you're never gonna see me come back around.
And you said you're leaving if I need this,
But you never gave me chance to work it out.

Fuck Yeah!
You never gave, never gave, never gave
Gave a chance to work it out.
Track Name: A Monument For A Normal Guy
Softly softly catches me,
But I’m not the monster you perceive,
And when we’re all alone I’ll tell you why,
Together we would make the best of lies.
But I’m singing
(Oh-Ah-oh)
It’s not over yet, we’re still kicking
(Oh-Ah-oh-oh)

My veins burn with you inside,
I can’t spit you out, how hard I’ve tried
And your lips taste like killing me
And so I’ll try to run but you won’t leave
I’m singing
(Oh-Ah-oh)
It’s not over yet, we’re still kicking
(Oh-Ah-oh-oh)
So take a look at yourself

It’s a fake it’s not what I’ve become
It’s a subtle reminder of the place where we came from
I’m taking illusion, overconfidence with a chaser of my heart
You’re not digging in you’re not ever after

Your words slowly swallow me, yeah they rip me up till I can’t breath
And these pills and demons my new friends, this is truly what we call the end,
This is truly what we call the end.

But I’m still singing
(Oh-Ah-oh)
It’s not over yet, we’re still kicking
(Oh-Ah-oh-oh)
Take a look at yourself

It’s a fake it’s not what I’ve become
It’s a subtle reminder of the place where we came from
I’m taking illusion, overconfidence with a chaser of my heart
You’re not digging in not forever,
It’s a fake it’s not what I’ve become
It’s a subtle reminder of the place where we came from
I’m taking illusion, overconfidence with a chaser of my heart
You’re not digging in not forever.
Track Name: Liar!
I sit across the cloth from this alone and empty chair,
And I promised I wouldn’t miss you, honestly I’ve tried
And all the times you said you wanted, you never called, you never did
And all the times you weren’t with me, yeah I knew you were with him

It breaks my heart to say goodbye and I fall apart every time.

And I swear, I can do this alone, yeah
Without your help, so who the hell are you
And I cared way too much to say it was never worth it
Was it worth it?
All I ever wanted was you to sing with me
And as I sit and contemplate the effects of these past years on my mental state
It’s over now and you’re too late

How the hell did I get here? She said that I wouldn’t survive.

All she said was lies,
If I could change I’d change her mind,
And now I feel like I’m on fire and I’m about to explode, ‘cus I’m about to explode.
All she said was lies,
If I could change I’d change her mind,
And now I feel like I’m on fire and I’m about to explode, ‘cus I’m about to explode.

I’ll change the words to keep the moment, running through your veins
They say timing isn’t everything, some things have to change
And by the time you read this letter, that I put through your door,
You’ll think that I’ve changed, I haven’t changed at all, I haven’t changed at all.
You’re still the fucking liar!

All she said was lies,
If I could change I’d change her mind,
And now I feel like I’m on fire and I’m about to explode, ‘cus I’m about to explode.
All she said was lies,
If I could change I’d change her mind,
And now I feel like I’m on fire and I’m about to explode, ‘cus I’m about to explode.
Track Name: Short Like Summer
I’ll sing this like I mean it,
But I’m sorry I didn’t care
So the place you found, I tore it down,
Imagine if it was still here
And I’m sick of always blaming you,
For things I know that I should change
But we wrap ourselves in rainbows
knowing things will stay the same.

And I’m surprised, that you’re still here.

I’ll tie my lips to keep the secrets, from ever getting out again
And if I’m honest it’s your attitude, it’s so good to get me down
So shut it up, I’ll cut it out,
You’ll only wear me out
Your aptitude, your attitude
It’ll only get me down

And I’m surprised, that I’m still here.

We’re falling into pieces, we’re running short on the times,
I’ve given you the reasons, now you’re fed-up with my lies

And I’m not surprised at all, we’re still here

We’re still here,
We’re still here,
We’re still here.
Track Name: Sick Of It All
I'm so sick of not being good enough,
not having answers to the questions you ask
and your timing, couldn't be better
if you let me, then I'll tell you
of how I'm so fed up, with no honesty
and the lack of, your humility
yeah and it gets me how you couldn't care less
we gotta say, we're sick of it all

And you know what? There's one other thing
you call it progress but in all honesty
yeah the cake tastes great if you can keep it down
and if you let us we can show you how
we're so sick of the degradation,
tried to teach us insecure,
but we're not the ones who need to wake up
does what we're saying, sound familiar?

We're sick of it all, but not giving up 'cus
have you heard that think about lovers?
they never give up never give in never fall,
I'm convinced you think you know it all.
We're sick of it all we're not giving up 'cus
yeah we know the thing we're the lovers
we never give up never give in never fall.

We're so sick of, sick of it all
We're so sick of, sick of it all
We're so sick of, sick of it all
We're so sick of, sick of it all

Are you ready, prepared, for real, to give it up
are you low, are you scared because you just can't stand the way
we connect, you know and through it all
we'll tear it apart, don't throw it away

We're sick of it all, but not giving up 'cus
have you heard that think about lovers?
they never give up never give in never fall,
I'm convinced you think you know it all.
We're sick of it all we're not giving up 'cus
yeah we know the thing we're the lovers
we never give up never give in never fall.

We're so sick of, sick of it all
We're so sick of, sick of it all
We're so sick of, sick of it all
We're so sick of, sick of it all
Track Name: Stockholm Swing
I may struggle to write this down,
But I have to find the words to get it out,
There’s still carnage in my mind
I need the time to try to fight this out,
You can’t run forever, no matter what they say,
We can’t live forever, when I struggle to live for today

I wanted to make you see, that your heart belongs to me
And I can, and if I can don’t think I’ll ever leave
And now as everything turns to grey,
And I struggle to find the words to replace the lines for you I made,
How else am I supposed to say

I’ll be all you need,
Until the end of the times,
I can set you free,
If you let me try,
I’ll be all you need,
Until the day that you die
I’ll be all that you need

I wish I’d never bring you down,
When I can’t even find the words to say,
Now you know that I’m inside out,
Yeah my minds all over your place,
I can’t lie forever, you steal every word I say
I can’t hide forever, now watch me take his place.

I tried to make you see, your heart belongs to me
And I can, and if I can don’t think I’ll ever leave
And now as everything turns to grey,
And I struggle to find the words to replace the lines for you I made,
How else am I supposed to say

I’ll be all you need,
Until the end of the times,
I can set you free,
If you let me try,
I’ll be all you need,
Until the day that you die
I’ll be all that you need yeah!

I’ll be all you need,
’Til the end of the times,
I can set you free,
If you let me try,
I’ll be all you need,
Until the day that you die
I’ll be all that you need

I’ll be all you need,
I’ll be all you need,
I’ll be all you need.
Track Name: If I Survive
Do you ever doubt yourself from the bottom of your heart
Do you ever feel like you’ve had enough at the end or right from the start
‘Cus I do, I feel like it right now,
I know that it’s stupid but I feel like I’m useless, ‘cus I haven’t been around

So lets raise this glass for one last time, we’re getting better at losing
And I won’t fall before the line, can we get back to being down.

You know how I feel now is how you felt yesterday
And I knew that you would have plenty to say
But I miss him and I miss her, and I still want things to change,
But I’m stuck here in the same room, and I’m still living day to day

Lets raise this glass for one last time, we’re getting better at losing
And I won’t fall before the line, can we get back to being down.

Come back, Come back, Come back, Come back,
Come back, Come back, Come back, Come back,

Lets raise this glass for one last time, we’re getting better at losing
And I won’t fall before the line, can we get back to being down.

Come back, Come back, Come back, Come back,
Come back, Come back, Come back, Come back.
Track Name: As You Wish
I can barely see it,
But it’s there as you start a smile
And if you’re not used to it,
You can cut it.

(Woah-oh,) Would you abandon me too?
(Woah-oh-oh) You can cut it,
(Woah-oh,) Would you abandon me too?
(Woah-oh-oh) You can cut it.

I can barely lift it,
The weight of your eyes on mine
Under pressure I think I, I believe it
I can barely feel it,
The warmth from your hand in mine,
And I’m counting the seconds,
‘Till you believe me

(Woah-oh,) Would you abandon me too?
(Woah-oh-oh) You can cut it,
(Woah-oh,) Would you abandon me too?
(Woah-oh-oh) You can cut it,
(Woah-oh,) Would you abandon me too?
(Woah-oh-oh) If you loved me,
(Woah-oh,) Would you abandon me too?
(Woah-oh-oh) If you loved me,
(Woah-oh,) I won’t leave without you,
(Woah-oh-oh) Not sure I’m tempted any more,
(Woah-oh) I’m tempted anymore
(Woah-oh-oh) (If you loved me)
(Woah-oh) And I, I’ll never let you down
(Woah-oh-oh) I said I, I’ll never let you down.
Sympathise with me, it’s not the last time,
Sympathise with me, it’s not the last time.
It’s not the last time,
It’s not the last time,
It’s not the last time,
It’s not the last time.
