I’m getting bored, bored so stiff Sitting on a fence that’s about to give It’s time for a new direction Your destruction (is) my predilection Make you case, it’s the game to play Don’t turn your back, don’t run away As I’m gonna be your accusatory And you will be my subsidiary I think you’re stupid And I’m out to prove it ‘cause my opinion is better than yours Take it, go on take it and leave Not long ‘till I’m hot on your heels Well I’m persistent and you know it You’ll be mine before you can lose it I don’t care for your understanding I don’t need your comprehension I don’t like your generalisation You’ll never reach my expectation I think you’re stupid And I’m out to prove it ‘cause my opinion is better than yours

No Believe 02:27
“I shouldn’t be here!” is what I say I’m not a part of your pocket (and I) won’t be made to stay And now the traps are set to turn me around But without that one conviction I can turn it off, throw it out, (rip it up) and start all over again I guess I’ll never get the chance to save my soul But I won’t be blinded by the (illusive/seeming) open goal The search party’s out and the scent is strong But without that one conviction I can turn it off, throw it out, (rip it up) and start all over again It’s all in the show and it’s fixed to blow It’s all in the show and it’s fixed to blow It’s all in the show and it’s fixed to blow It’s all gonna blow, I’ll save my own soul! Take my hand, I’ll set you free Now I have this one conviction We can turn it off, throw it out, (rip it up) and start all over again

2 Pacific 04:14
Throwing stones in to the ocean So that the impact will break my reflection I know that I will have to leave here I’ll never be that feeling, no memory Hold on (Hold on), I’m trying to just…. Hold on (Hold on) Hold on (Hold on) I could be out for a long time A total meltdown, I didn’t know it No redemption, I really blew it A blind situation, full confirmation I rode the wave too far and got to see just where it went….. Head to head, lights up in the distance Now my heart is pumping hard just like a piston My kaleidoscopic eyes are adjusting to the night I’m a devastation, like a piston Hold on (Hold on), I’m trying to just…. Hold on (Hold on), I wish could just…. Hold on (Hold on) Too pacific

I’ll track your house party down, I don’t need an invite Kick open the front door and head for the light (I’ll) drink all of your beer before the night’s even started Take a piss on the TV (and) smear shit on the carpet I don’t like to be this way but I’m too hungry to turn away It makes me sick to see the waste so I hit it too “I like to party!” I need more drink, now I’m out of control Start a fight in the bedroom now that I’m on a roll I come up, I come up And when I’m ready to party we’re all fucked I go down, fully drown Like a rock in a pool, I’m straight down

Too Late 03:47
Bad eyes and a dirty mouth A distressed smile, it’s spitting vowels 30 seconds and I’ll have to try and break free I’ve heard the complaints before Never listened to, well I can’t hear anymore I’m so bored, (feels like) my ears are going to bleed I’ll never get away I’ll never get away I’ll never get away And it’s getting too damn late Too Late Bad blood is raining down Another day another irritant Your negative drive can’t break me down, I won’t be your victim Well I am still hanging on, I won’t be a victim, I won’t be your muse, I won’t be your pawn, I won’t be your princess, no no no (The) interruptions are a daily curse Too many questions, my head really hurts No release and it’s taking it’s toll on me The black cat is baring down Wild stress levels, I’m sweating out loud Your infection is killing me
