Track Name: Storylines
Grown up in broken homes, how do you know
when storylines and worlds collide, our only hope.
is to watch our own scripts, rewrite this plot twist.
Work hard to earn the right to fight back
When you`re cut down to size despite of the contract
We can have our own way, We`ll write our own days

You can`t run away, regretting yesterday
We can`t hide away, All of the problems you brought up.
All the problems you brought up

What happened to the ask, and don`t tell
sold out for something more prone to sell
Submit and obey, asking price that we all pay
Where do we go when's there's nothing left
guess it`s time we turned to an unknown step.
This is where we restart, I know I’ve play my part

You can`t run away, regretting yesterday
We can`t hide away, All of the problems you brought up.
So we`ll find a way, to start new today
We can fake our way, `til our conscience is caught up.

til we’re writing a new page.
say good bye to those days
when we played at higher stakes
when we made the same mistakes

storylines
worlds collide
storylines
Track Name: Redirection
I never thought we’d have something to lean on
Do you really believe that we had control of what was going on
we started so fast, we were so far ahead
To take your time, was off your mind
and that`s okay.

For anything we said, pretensed or pretend
Any other day, but it was today that came my way
and it tought me to regret.
it showed me, the right way
to turn, so I`m redirecting


I always had this plan, to think more than twice
Then you swept in and you proved all my logic right
If you're on my side, I bet that we'll be alright.
Turns out it`ll all work out in time

For anything we said, pretensed or pretend
Taking all the blame, something picked up along the way.
and it tought me to regret.
it showed me, the right way
to turn, so I`m redirecting
Track Name: Dead Ends New Friends
We clocked in, and they paid for our presence
Just another way, for them to cut off all our senses
We choked out, in the middle of the day long night shift
but what can they expect from a bunch of fucked up kids

Then when your bloods stops flowing, That`s your first death
The second is the last time your name is on my breath
And when your heart stops beating, there`s no contest
Nothing here can cure your lifelessness

Can`t you see whats wrong here
Am I the only one who cares?


That we fucked up, getting sucked into structure
to find what`s caught up, underneath all the of this junk here
These Mindless needs, when you need to mind your judgement
just looking for a better way to gain your acknowledgement.

Then when your bloods stops flowing, That`s your first death
The second is the last time your name is on my breath
Then when your heart stops beating, That`s your first death
The second is the last time your name is on my breath
It`s on my breath

(And we all know)
We both know what we said
the days inside your head
stacked up against our own again
and we went cold

a partial dialogue between the coach and the team
to work and strive towards a common goal or a dream
dodging all the curve balls, all the turns and bends
forgive, forget, dead ends, and new friends
Track Name: Turn and Run
It takes eyes that are stronger than mine
To see how dead and hollow you are inside
When it counted, I was blind,
Too blind to see you were dead inside

Feeling sorry for yourself
Blaming everyone else surrounding you in your shell
I was only there to see if I could help
When I should have looked out for myself


Misguided, you meant well
I misplaced my trust

You thrived on negativity
When I should have turned and run


I was too blind to see
you got the best of me
I was too blind to see
you got the best of me
I was too blind to see
Everything fall apart,
Right in front of me.
Track Name: Wise Words
Would it make more sense in the long run,
if we left, put behind what we’ve done
Do you think that in all your protest
Anything was solved

Said you`d call, when you reached your own bed
So I wait, let the cold thoughts creep in.
My legs week, on my knees.
Waiting for your call

And if you make the mistake
took all my rights, right away
and when my head starts spinning

I’m not sure if I should trust your eyes
When all you’ve said, is this will get better
My mind runs away with all your fucking lies
And I guess you`ll see, when I make this better

Apparently I rewrote each line
To convey all the words on my mind
Cause at first, the way it sounded
made no sense to me

If we crashed, would it be an upset
Let`s be honest, you know what you said
And I can`t, see myself,
fighting this at all

And if you make the mistake
took all my rights, right away
and when my head starts spinning

I’m not sure if I should trust your eyes
When all you’ve said, is this will get better
My mind runs away with all your fucking lies
And I guess you`ll see, when I make this better

And when my head starts spinning
(Far past the chance the to turn away)
And if your head starts spinning
(All along you asked for this)

I’m not sure if I should trust your eyes
When all you’ve said, is this will get better
My mind runs away with all your fucking lies
And I guess you`ll see, when I make this better
When I make this better,
Forget the thoughts you kept in hope
that I would let, this all go.

Wise words say, there`s only two real ways to live
Like nothing is meant to be, or everything is
