Track Name: Dead Weight
Dead Weight
Verse 1
Strike a match, light a fire,
It's time to burn this up.
Don’t stop fighting,
Until you’ve reached the top.

Pre chorus:
All they do is try to hold us back, (hold us back)
Give us trouble like a heart attack, (heart attack)
Fuel to fire, always get burnt,
Take these lessons that we’ve learnt.

Chorus
All they wanna do is fuck around
They give it all to try and slow us down
We’re overtaking them, don’t look now
Once Were Lost, but baby now we’re found

Verse 2
Alcohol and cigarettes,
Memories fade away
When life becomes a fantasy
Don’t forget my name

Pre chorus:
All they do is try to hold us back, (hold us back)
Give us trouble like a heart attack, (heart attack)
Fuel to fire, always get burnt,
Take these lessons that we’ve learnt.

Chorus
All they wanna do is fuck around
They give it all to try and slow us down
We’re overtaking them, don’t look now
Once Were Lost, but baby now we’re found

Bridge
(Dead weight, too late) we’re gonna tear this down
(Burning rubber,) gonna blow this town
(Wheels are spinning) in the pouring rain
We’re taking back our lives again

Pre chorus:
All they do is try to hold us back, (hold us back)
Give us trouble like a heart attack, (heart attack)
Fuel to fire, always get burnt,
Take these lessons that we’ve learnt.

Chorus
All they wanna do is fuck around
They give it all to try and slow us down
We’re overtaking them, don’t look now
Once Were Lost, but baby now we’re found
Track Name: Baggage Claim
Baggage Claim

Verse 1
I want to go back to where it started (You want to go back and start again)
To the time that felt so simple (We didn’t seem to care)
This is my time to make the changes that I want to see right now
This can be overwhelming, (where can I begin)

Pre Chorus
This is the chance to start again (We’ll start again and do it right)
Don’t make the same mistake my friend (We’ll start again)

Chorus
This is my ambition, I want to make it last
At times it’s been a struggle, I can’t escape the past
Today I see it clearly, control your own path
Don’t try to hold it back now, (you’re coming back again)

Verse 2
I want to go back to the beginning, (You want to back to when it’s right)
To the times when we where winning, (We didn’t have to fight)
I want to go back and find a time when people didn’t cut you out
When we were still there for each other, (Any day or night)

Pre Chorus
This is the chance to start again (We’ll start again and do it right)
Don’t make the same mistake again (We’ll start again)

Chorus
This is my ambition, I want to make it last
At times it’s been a struggle, I cant escape the past
Today I see it clearly, control your own path
Don’t try to hold it back now, you’re coming back again)

Bridge
This is your chance to make it right
(We’ll make it right)
This is the time to stand and fight
(We’ll stand and fight)
So if you want to make it, this is your chance so take it
It won’t be coming back again

Chorus
This is my ambition, I want to make it last
At times it’s been a struggle, I cant escape the past
Today I see it clearly, control your own path
Don’t try to hold it back now, you’re coming back again
Track Name: Radio Killer
Radio Killer

Verse 1
Here we go again, another puppet on display
Fill them with false hope, their dreams of money and fame
You put them on parade, for everyone to judge them
This false reality, will lead them to selling their souls

Pre Chorus
We are the antidote to this disease, open up your eyes don’t be a slave

Chorus
Hey radio, listen to the world that you created.
The same old shit day after day
The cookie cutters wearing out
Your talent quests for the best, souls that you can control
Bleeding them until their dry
More about likes than talent

Verse 2
Polluting the airwaves, with more generic bullshit
Brainwashing consumers, to buy the things that you want them too
Inspiration to the sheep, not a good role model
When the well goes dry, they move along to another puppet.

Pre Chorus
We are the antidote to this disease, open up your eyes don’t be a slave

Chorus
Hey radio, listen to the world that you created.
The same old shit day after day
The cookie cutters wearing out
Your talent quests for the best, souls that you can control
Bleeding them until their dry
More about likes than talent

Bridge
(Your slaves to the system)Contracts can be bought and sold
(This false reality) is getting stale, there’s no hope for us
(Trapped inside their world) they put you on display for everyone
(Then they will move on) to something new, leave you with nothing

Pre Chorus
We are the antidote to this disease, open up your eyes don’t be a slave

Clean chorus
(Radio, controlling, everything that you hear
We’ll take it back, show the world they have a choice)

Chorus
Hey radio, listen to the world that you created.
The same old shit day after day
The cookie cutters wearing out
Your talent quests for the best, souls that you can control
Bleeding them until their dry
More about likes than talent
More about likes than talent
Track Name: Faded
Faded

Verse 1
I wake up at 7am
Drag myself out of bed
Time to do it all again
The same it old shit never ends

Pre-Chorus
Going through the motions
Day after day

Chorus
I am frustrated
Feeling so jaded
No Stimulation
In my situation

Verse 2
On my own driving home
Music plays on my phone
Man this highway just goes on
I need to sing a different song

Pre-Chorus
Going through the motions
Day after day

Chorus
I am frustrated
Feeling so jaded
No Stimulation
In my situation

Bridge
(Leave behind this misery)
And make it all history
(This is all that I have got)
I have to take this one last shot
(No time to stop,) No time to stare
You’re not going anywhere
(This time I need), to break free
There’ll be nothing left of me

Chorus
I am frustrated
Feeling so jaded
No Stimulation
In my situation

I’m fading
(whoa oh)
(whoa oh oh)
Track Name: Tipping Point
Tipping Point

VERSE 1
How can we exist?
When all that's left is this?
We have to find another way (We can’t keep going)
How do we move on?
Where did it all go wrong?
We have destroyed our only world
(there’s nothing left here)

PRE CHORUS
Scientists find the reason we die
and the rest of us close our eyes

CHORUS
The world we know is dead and gone
(There’s no returning)
We are falling towards the light
(To find some meaning)
The future looks like a spinning coin (heads or tails)
With our fate on either side (To live or die)

VERSE 2
Ignorance is bliss and the reason is this
we never looked under the bed (To see what’s hiding)
monsters in our minds, we look into their eyes
We find a way to make them pay (For their crimes)

PRE CHORUS
Scientists find the reason we die
and the rest of us close our eyes

CHORUS
The world we know is dead and gone
(there’s no returning)
We are falling towards the light
(To find some meaning)
The future looks like a spinning coin (heads or tails)
With our fate on either side (To live or die)

BRIDGE
Why don't we try to stay alive
Listen to those with better minds
accept our limits and live within them
If we fight we can get out with our lives

CHORUS
The world we know is only young (We’ve still got time)
We are walking towards the light
(We found our meaning)
The future looks like a spinning coin
With new lives on either side, life is our prize
