Track Name: As I Fall Down
I can feel that everyone knows
That everybody is looking at me
How can you lie and how can you deny
That everyone is staring at me
How can you talk and how can you laugh
When everybody looks as I fall down
I don't understand what you see
When it feels like a giant tragedy
How can you mock and how can you taunt
At someone else's failing mistakes
How can you talk and how can you laugh
When everyone watches as I fall down

How can you lie and how can you deny
That everyone is staring at me
How can you talk and how can you laugh
When everybody looks as I fall down
How can you mock and how can you taunt
At someone else's failing mistakes
How can you talk and how can you laugh
When everyone watches as I fall down
I can feel that everyone knows
That everyone is staring at me
How can you lie and how can you deny
That everybody is staring at me

I don't understand what you see
When it feels like a giant tragedy
How can you talk and how can you laugh
When everybody looks as I fall down
How can you mock and how can you taunt
At someone else's failing mistakes
How can you talk and how can you laugh
When everyone watches as I fall down

How can you lie and how can you deny
When everybody looks as I fall down
How can you mock and how can you taunt
When everyone watches as I fall down
How can you mock and how can you taunt
At someone else's failing mistakes
How can you talk and how can you laugh
When everyone watches as I fall down
Track Name: Life After Death
Don't let go,
Hold on to it

Hold on to tomorrow
Your future won't fade

Live free,
Avoid the knife
Time will tell
Don't channel out
Your future won't fade

This is now and this is then
No need to worry about anything
You know that you are here to stay

No need to think about what you know
Feel like that there's life after death

You are here,
This is now
Don't drug out
Days won't waste
Your future won't fade

Life is free,
Have no worries
Enjoy your life

Track Name: Here I Stand
Close my eyes and whisper in
I've forgotten how to grasp it in
Hold my breath and count the stars
I can see myself going so far

And how you think you see me
Is not how you should remember me
And how you think you hear me
Is not how you should listen to me

Hear my words and see my smile
I'm standing right here to let you know
Feel my soul and sparkle my eyes
Take me as I am 'cause here I stand

Break my bones and shuffle dirt
Lost memories turn to sacred hurt
Dig my grave and hear me scream
A lost soul and a forgotten dream

And how you think you see me
Is not how you should remember me
And how you think you hear me
Is not how you should listen to me

Hear my words and see my smile
I'm standing right here to let you know
Feel my soul and sparkle my eyes
Take me as I am 'cause here I stand

And how you think you see me
Is not how you should remember me

And how you think you see me
Is not how you should remember me
And how you think you hear me
Is not how you should listen to me

Hear my words and see my smile
I'm standing right here to let you know
Feel my soul and sparkle my eyes
Take me as I am 'cause here I stand

And how you think you see me
Is not how you should remember me
And how you think you hear me
Is not how you should listen to me

Hear my words and see my smile
I'm standing right here to let you know
Feel my soul and sparkle my eyes
Take me as I am 'cause here I stand

Track Name: Shawn Martin feat. Kevin MacLeod - The Best for Her
She's sorry it never turned out right
She's crying, her tears tell her sorrow
She's moving, starting her life all over
She's wanting all her dreams to come true
All her dreams... to come true

She's willing to make the change
Her choices, emotions and pain
She's willing to sacrifice
Her freedom, belongings and fame
She wants it all again
No more media,
No more chasing fame

She wants it all again
No more gambling,
No more partying
She wants it all again

She's seeing her future fade away
She's trying to take all the blame
She's stopping all of her partying
She's sorting out her life again
Out her life... again.

She's willing to make the change
Her choices, emotions and pain
She's willing to sacrifice
Her freedom, belongings and fame
She wants it all again
No more media,
No more chasing fame

She wants it all again
No more gambling,
No more partying
She wants it all again

'Cause everything she's done and everything she'll do
Doesn't matter anymore
I only want the best for her
I only want the best for her
She deserves the best for her
She deserves everything

Everything she's done and everything she'll do
Doesn't matter anymore
I love her so and want her to know
If she comes looking for me
I'll be right here waiting (right here waiting)
Track Name: Throwing Out the Trash
I'll say,
"I hate you"
I'll stay,
You can go
I hate,
The way you are
You'll say,
"Fuck you, too"

I'll say,
"I hate you"
I'll stay,
You can go
I hate,
The way you are
You'll say,
"Fuck you, too"
Track Name: Think About It
Is this all we've come for?
Only this time in life can we ever imagine
That the only things we ever remembered were the bad times?
Can you tell me why you think all we need is love and trust?
Fuck love and fuck trust.
They never do us any favors.
We find that special someone and they fuck us over
Like everyone else who has ever crossed our paths.
Do you want to live a life like that?
In denial?
Grow up, grow balls.
Life is just a fuck up.
One after another, it's just a fuck up.
Think about it.

Don't deny what you know is true
Because all we ever know is what we're taught.
We do things others do, we see things other see
And we become cocky motherfuckers acting like drones.
Hell is what the Earth has become and I won't tolerate that shit.
It's kill or be killed.
I guess I'll be killed.
What gives us the right to say who lives and who dies?
Are we God? Are we Buddah?
Are we any form of religious figure?
I think not.
Think about it.

Watch your words or your words will haunt you.
Think before you do.
Don't be so fucking impulsive.
All we are, are mindless puppets who follow the leader.
How do our leaders know what to do?
They are only as intelligent as the rest of us.
Not smarter.
Maybe dumber.
Live how you want.
Don't let others control you.
Don't bash people because they're different.
They're only different because they don't want to be like you.
Has that ever crossed your mind?
Think about it.

I may not have talents or documents saying that I can say this
But it's a free country and I'll speak my fucking mind.
Don't be a fool to your surroundings.
We know you're there and so do you.
You aren't invisible and they are bastards for pretending it.
So, you're not the "it" crowd material, they say?
Fuck them.
Mindless drones is all they are.
Start a group of people who don't fit in and one day
You will rule the world.
Think about it.
