Track Name: Mild
Im here to say Im sorry
I can't believe myself
Stupid and obnoxious yeah
Should've never been toxified

Polished you shimmer and glimmer
Your beauty makes me mad
Dead to say I love you
from the deepest part of my heart...

I know the mistakes I've made
This sickness you've been through
It's not the way I've imagined it to be
treating you the way I should've done

Polished you shimmer and glimmer
Your beauty makes me mad
Dead to say I love you
from the deepest part of my heart...

This guilt upon my shoulders
Have brought me down and low
Please forgive me Baby...
hope that I can make it up to you...

What do you say?
I can't wait all day
I'll put a flower in your hair, I'll even hold your hand I swear

What do you say?
I can't wait all day
Together we'll cherish the summer air, Lets ride our bikes go anywhere...

Polished you shimmer and glimmer
Your beauty makes me mad
Dead to say I love you
from the deepest part of my heart... x2
Track Name: Figure
She's says my words all full of it
Praises that Praises that the contents are elicit
She's a Diamond outside our atmosphere
Is this really what it seems?

Was cautious to fall,
falling into nightfall
It was time for us to apprehend
Release this beat to soar...

And sometimes we Figure, this kiss...
Was it all just a mis-understanding...
ooh...

But this urging what could it be
The only one I envy
Together we'll re-write History

It's coming over, It's coming under
It's coming over, it's coming under again
It's coming over, It's coming under
It's coming over, it's coming under again!

It's coming over, It's coming under, Cover!
There's no need to cry over spilt-milk
It's time to stop and bury them under
Throw your concerns and its over x2

And sometimes we Figure, this kiss...
Was it all just a mis-understanding...
ooh...

But this urging what could it be
The only one I envy
Together we'll re-write History
Yeah

And sometimes we Figure, this kiss...
Was it all just a mis-understanding...
ooh...

ooh ooh ooh ooh oooooh... x5
GO!
Track Name: Struck
Like trees, moving in the breeze
moving without its own control
I, I can't stand upon my own feet
A continuousity of waves that struck

Im out of tempo, to this slow beat
repeat me after I say my last words

Honestly its never been so good this way
Just wished for us to make up our minds
Meet me near the sunset
where the skies will start to mesh its colours
Darkness meets Light

Im out of tempo, to this slow beat
repeat me after I say my last words

Im Struck, by the morning light
Im Stuck, by the lightning of your eyes
Im Struck, by the marmalade skies Darling yeah
Im Stuck, in this madness to comply

Caught in a situation where life takes the order
What we want is what's not
and reality wants better
Caught in the middle where night has not yet come
and day has not yet gone

Im out of tempo, to this slow beat
repeat me after I say my last words

Im Struck, by the morning light
Im Stuck, by the lightning of your eyes
Im Struck, by the marmalade skies Darling yeah
Im Stuck, in this madness to comply

Im out of tempo, to this slow beat
repeat me after I say my last words
Track Name: Fast Forward
Seeing now it falls to place
The end has come to both of us
You are you and I am me
You and I weren't meant to be...

Do these waters taste so sweet?
Or am I happy standing on my own feet
Seeing as the clouds to grey
I believe that your the one whos missing out today

Whos missing out, Whos missing out today?
Whos missing out, is everybody okay?
Whos missing out, Whos missing out today?
Whos missing out, is everybody okay?

As the fog has cleared away
Im at peace and here I'll stay
Behind me is just old memories
Look forward to the melodies I'll make

Do these waters taste so sweet?
Or am I happy standing on my own feet
Seeing as the clouds to grey
I believe that your the one whos missing out today

Whos missing out, Whos missing out today?
Whos missing out, is everybody okay?
Whos missing out, Whos missing out today?
Whos missing out, is everybody okay?

Its time to have some fun yeah
Its time to find your own divide

Whos missing out, Whos missing out today?
Whos missing out, is everybody okay?
Whos missing out, Whos missing out today?
Whos missing out, is everybody okay?
Track Name: Fail to Notice
Have you ever seen the night sky
Look so grey even when the clouds have drifted away
It triumphs over the moon light (Stars that hover)
Beneath the heavens we once believed was real...

Have you ever seen with eyes closed?
Your dreams are nothing but a ghost
They know you like an open book
try no further, theres nowhere else to look

Was it? or was it not? You?
That had but wasted it all on yourself

Do they really stand among us?
Showing us the truth before all the lies?
Is this the reality? yeah.
Take our food and let another die.

Castles in the sky, don't you ask me why...
Abdicate your throne, to live in harmony

Im failing... to notice...
Im failing... to notice...
Track Name: Bartendress
Simple yet Delicate...
You stand before them...
Serving their daily delicacies, at the end of the day

Liquids in a myriad of fermentations
Flowing down their slippery throats
Only to make all happy, angry, sad...
Or simply relieved

She called herself a Bartendress
No No
The crowd weren't too impressive
Presented with another... Drink!
We'll all be leaving,
We'll all be leaving here,
With grin on our faces and its you... and I

Complicate what we are
and what we are not
somethings just will fit like Gin and Tonic
I say cheers to Peace!
I say cheers to Love!
I say cheers to this Wonderly Wonderful Life

It only makes us who we are
and it only takes us where to go...
It only makes us happy, angry, sad...
or simply relieved

She called herself a Bartendress
No No
The crowd weren't too impressive
Presented with another... Drink!
We'll all be leaving,
We'll all be leaving here,
With grin on our faces and its you... and Me
Yeah

She called herself a Bartendress
No No
The crowd weren't too impressive
Presented with another... Drink!
We'll all be leaving,
We'll all be leaving here,
With grin on our faces and its you... and Me
Yeah... ooo...

And all of my friends,
will always be,
here in my arms

And all of my doubts
will vanish in thin air

And all of my sins
will wash away,
after drinking one too many
after drinking three four glasses
after drinking till we drop
after drinking till we die...
