Track Name: Prisoner
Verse 1
Take me
Erase me
Replace me
Baby
I sold you my soul

Suffocate me
Oh so slowly
If I’d only
Knew what you had in store

You tricked me
Into believing
That you could give me

Pre-Chorus
Gave me the kiss of life
Worth a thousand lies
Now I’m done
I don’t want to be your prisoner

Chorus
Let me go
Can’t take this anymore
The deal’s off
This pact is null and void
Let me go
I don’t want
To do this anymore
I’m not your prisoner

After Chorus
Take no prisoners x6

Verse 2
Muted
in your whirlwind
so illusive
How could I know

You’d take me
Break me
rearrange me
Can’t escape this cold war

So tricky
Had me believing
But you can’t give me

Pre-Chorus
So give me that kiss of life
worth a thousand lies
I’m inspired
And I’m taking no prisoners

Bridge
It may have took me a while
But I see it all clearly now
The secret you keep aloud
Is that I’m free
and you have no authority

Chorus
Track Name: Perfect
Verse 1
I don’t know why
I can’t do nothing right
Every time that we fight
It’s my fault
You know I
try and try
To make you happy but I
Mess it up every time

Pre-Chorus
But wait
I’m just one
It takes two to
Tango in the dance that we call love
So could you please
Stop blaming me
For, everything

Chorus
Oh, well if you’re so goddamn perfect (Oh, well if you’re so-o damn perfect)
Then why do you put up with it
Oh... that’s what I thought
You’re really not
You’re not so goddamn perfect

Verse 2
It’s never you
It’s always me
Apparently
I’m the queen of bitching
But if you’d stop pointing at me
to make sense of everything
I’d stop repeating myself
‘Cause you’d be listening

Pre-Chorus
And yea, I’m just one
And it takes two to
Tango in this dance that we call love
So could you please
Stop blaming me for
Everything?

Chorus
Oh, well if you’re so goddamn perfect
Then why do you put up with it
Oh... that’s what I thought
You’re really not
You’re not so goddamn perfect

Bridge
Please stop looking at me that way
Don’t speak
I have something to say
I’m sick and tired of your
Judgment days
You’re no god so
Who the hell are you to say?
(Guitar solo)
I said stop looking at me
That way...

Chorus x2
Oh, well if you’re so goddamn perfect
Then why do you put up with it
Oh... that’s what I thought
You’re really not
You’re not so goddamn perfect
Track Name: Dance in the Rain
Verse 1
Crimson sky
Give me butterflies
Euphoric flutters of life
Heaven’s parting now
By and by
They said it’d happen sometime
Now we see the light
The sky is falling now

Pre-chorus
And I don’t know why
I’m so alive
But it’s beautiful
Let’s take put our life
On the line
Running out of time
But it’s beautiful

Chorus
Dance in the rain
Oh oh oh
Wash it all away
Find your sweet escape
Just dancin’
Dancin’ dancin’ in the rain

Verse 2
Destiny undefined
with your stars aligned
Just as they prophesized
What you gonna do now
Don’t miss the signs
Cause we can’t rewind
You know it’s time
It’s got to happen now

Pre-chorus 2
So put your life
On the line
you’re terrified
But it’s beautiful
So high
to the sky
So alive
And yea it’s beautiful
It’s beautiful

Chorus
Dancin’ in the rain
Yeah

Bridge
Drip, drop
Don’t stop
Just take my hand
And don’t ever me let go
Take me perfectly
As we dance in the rain

Chorus
Track Name: Kingdom Come
Verse 1
Sometimes I ache,
When I wake and I
don’t see your face
You’re so far away
But we both know that
Things do change
Left me in your outer space
But my love remains

Pre-Chorus
When it rains
(Oh, when it rains baby)
I call your name
(I call your name, baby)
And I go insane
Can’t take this darkness baby,
oh, come and rescue me...

Chorus
You are my sun
The only one
To light my life
But what must be,
must be done
But you’ll still shine
And be my light
And I’ll be yours
Till kingdom come

Verse 2
And on my darkest nights
Without a star in sight I
close my eyes
And I pray
They say what goes around
Comes back around baby
So won’t you orbit back to me
Oh, before I go crazy

Pre-Chorus
I’ll transcend
(Go beyond the limit babe)
Until when
(Til I get you back baby)
I see you again
Wish upon shooting stars
til I get back my heart...

Chorus
Track Name: I'll Never Say It (Interlude)
No lyrics
Track Name: Feel Better
Verse 1
You know what they told you
You heard what they said
“If that’s what you choose
Then your better of dead...
don’t let them see you
Don’t tell who you know
Baby, you lost your freedom
A long time ago”

Verse 2
So now your heart’s broken
Dreams under attack
You pack up your memories
And never look back
Those who throw stones
Have their own wounds too
But all you hear in your head
Is them saying to you:

Chorus
Hope you feel better
Oh, oh, oh
Get well soon
Please feel better
Cause this world isn’t
Changing for you

Verse 3
Felt so close to home
But it was oceans away
Straight into my soul
But it can’t be there to stay
I’ll be just fine because
It isn’t mine
It’s inside you
I can only tell you

Chorus
I hope you feel better
Oh, oh, oh
Get well soon
Please feel better
Cause my world isn’t
Changing for you

Verse 4
The day that I grew up
Was the day that I learned
That life isn’t fair
And you’re gonna get hurt
But the day that I found
my sanity
Is when I stopped taking things
So damn personally

Chorus
Track Name: WMD
Verse 1
Crash landed here
22 years ago
This world is
A really funny place ya know
See where I’m from
There’s only love and peace
Nobody passin’ round the gavel
And calling you freaks

So hey you,
over there
You know it’s pretty impolite to point
and even ruder to stare
Don’t try to figure it out
Cause I know without a doubt
That you ain’t neva eva seen
Anything quite like me

A Pre-Hook
I’m tired of gravity
Holding us down
Lift off the ground
in 5-4-3-2-1

Chorus
We bout to drop it on ya
Betta run for cover
Nothin’ can stop us cause
This is a take over
We don’t want your fighters
Cause we got our lovers
Don’t be scared now
It’s just a make over
Flip your reality
With the amo that you seek
Got your WMD
And it’s L-O-V-E

Verse 2
Crash landed here
With nowhere else to go
This world is
A really scary place ya know
Only concerned
With you, yours, and your own
Heading with the speed of light
Into a danger zone

Ain’t it funny how
You’re feeling so dizzy now
Spinning round and round
and round, and round...
Fought so long for it
Can’t believe that it’s come back to this
So much you could have had
but you turned you time to sand

A Pre-Hook
Can’t let this gravity
Keep holding us down
So let’s lift off
the ground
in 5-4-3-2-1

Chorus
We bout to drop it on ya
Betta run for cover
Nothin can stop us cause
This is a take over
We don’t want your fighters
Cause we got our lovers
Don’t be scared now
It’s just a make over
Flip your reality
With the amo that you seek
Got your WMD
And it’s L-O-V-E

Bridge
Maybe it’s the mis-wire
That caused it all to break
With speed of friendly fire
You had your desire
Is it the land of the free
Or the free to do whatever they please

Chorus
