Track Name: Release
So here we are, torn apart
They left you for dead
Forgotten, living in your head
Will you break the curse
Will you make it worse to live
Or can you find a way to give

If I cannot break free
And set my mind at ease
Give me my release, release, release, release, release
Til I find what I need
Give my soul some peace
Give me my release, release, release, release, release

So stand up and fight
Fight for what's right
Fight for your life
Fight for one more day
For one more night
I'm not giving up
I'm not giving in
I won't let you win

And I will stop at nothing
To get what I want
To get what's coming
Take my power back
And plan my attack

If I cannot break free
And set my mind at ease
Give me my release, release, release, release, release
Til I find what I need
Give my soul some peace
Give me my release, release, release, release, release

I'm what you want
I'm what you need
I'm your desire
I'm your greed
I am everything you want to be

I'm the hero
I'm the villain
I'm the fighter
I'm the willing
I am everything you want to be

If I cannot break free
And set my mind at ease
Give me my release, release, release, release, release
Til I find what I need
Give my soul some peace
Give me my release, release, release, release, release
Track Name: Star
Leather jacket sun glasses and rock star boots
We've got a million dollars credit that we abuse
And the paparazzi's taking pictures of you and I in the news
Head down we refuse

Here we go, here we go all the way
All the way to L.A.
It's a brand new day
Everyone's famous
Everyone's a star
With a bright gold chain
And a brand new car
Letting, letting the world fall apart
They make you make this beautiful art
Here we go, here we go all the way
All the way to L.A.
It's a brand new day

Waking up, waking up the growing trees
She is swaying, she is dancing in the breeze
And the idiots are no longer useful
But a smile is still beautiful
There's no innocence left in the girl in the red dress
She's partying she's got a brand new man made chest
And they're all here to impress the band from Texas

Here we go, here we go all the way
All the way to L.A.
It's a brand new day
Everyone's famous
Everyone's a star
With a bright gold chain
And a brand new car
Letting, letting the world fall apart
They make you make this beautiful art
Here we go, here we go all the way
All the way to L.A.
It's a brand new day

It's time to get even
It's time to get right
Load up your rock 'n' roll weapons
And fight

They're gonna make you a star
They're gonna make you a star
They're gonna make you a star
Track Name: The One I Love
You build it up too high
Can't find your way back down to the ground from the sky
And who you are isn't who you want to be anymore
Who you love is not a choice
So give broken hearts a voice

The one I love isn't the one who loves me
The one I love isn't the one at all
The one I love isn't the one who wants me
The one I love isn't the one at all

I'd give my life just to have what he's got
And to be what I'm not
And it's torture he doesn't deserve her
And it's torture
Don't take it as a fact
That who you love will love you back

All the things that we'll never do
All of the hurt I put my self through
What is it for
Ah the one I adore
The one I abhor
The one I'm wanting more

The one I love isn't the one who loves me
The one I love isn't the one at all
The one I love isn't the one who wants me
The one I love isn't the one at all

It's hard to believe
It's hard to believe
That you could ever be everything in the world for me
It's hard to believe
It's hard to believe
That you could ever belong to me

The one I love isn't the one who loves me
The one I love isn't the one at all
The one I love isn't the one who wants me
The one I love isn't the one at all

I'd never let you down like they did
I'd make every moment perfect
Like your favorite movie scene
Like all of the dreams
You have yet to dream
Track Name: Parallels
In a perfect world, you and me
We met differently
We fit perfectly
There's not a second
Where you weren't loved
Or the one I was thinking of
Parallels are leading me closer to you
But parallels don't connect it's true

And you're so
And you're so far away
And you're all I want
You're all I need today

Look in your heart
Do you really believe
That it would happen
If it was supposed to be
Can't you see
That there is no fate
Or destiny
But in your dreams
Like the world had to bend
For the two of us to meet
Parallels are leading me closer to you
But parallels don't connect it's true

And you're so
And you're so far away
And you're all I want
You're all I need today
Track Name: Escape
It's not too late
For me to escape
For me to awake
I know this will never be
Another mystery
Another wasted dream

I know it's not too late
For me to escape
For me to hate
Your heart is wasted
Your love is hated tonight
Tonight

Let me go
Let me die all alone

It's not too late
For me to escape
For me too hate
Track Name: More Like The Beatles
I wish I was more like The Beatles
I wish I was more like Paul
And wrote you the most beautiful love song
You'd ever hear

I wish I was more like John
With a dream that never dies
Like mine has

I wish I was more like George
So full of wisdom and at peace

I wish I was more like Ringo
And I could make you smile everyday

And I see my self swimming in
The most beautiful ocean
It hurts to describe
Like a beautiful girl I know
I will only get there in my mind

I know that it's hard to imagine
That anything could be this tragic
Was it all inside your head
What left you broken
What left you for dead

All the good
All the bad
All that I never had
Pull my self back from the edge
And watch the world collapse

And I see my self swimming in
The most beautiful ocean
It hurts to describe
Like a beautiful girl I know
I will only get there in my mind
Track Name: Alone
I'm alone again
Hello my old friend
It's been how long since we met
And if we died right now
Would it change our lives somehow
Or be the same throughout

Will we make it out alive
Make it through the night
Is today the day we die

And I'm alone again
Just like I began
And how I'll always end
I still try to pretend
That how it all ends
It all ends for the best

Will we make it out alive
Make it through the night
Is today the day we die

Do you still feel you can change the world
Do you still feel you can save the girl
Are you still
Are you still all alone

Will we make it out alive
Make it through the night
Is today the day we die
The night
The night
The night
Track Name: Lost & Gone
Everyone's lost but not you and I
They're all looking for a reason
When there's no reason why

Yeah I found my self
But I've been through hell
Don't have any pictures
Just stories to tell

Are you lost
Are you lost & gone
Did it all go wrong
Yeah I'll hang my head
And sing my song
Yeah, I'm right where I belong

Give me a reason
A reason not to quit
Yeah I'll know I'll make it
If you can live through this

Thought I had an angel
But they've all taken flight
And there's no more stars in the sky tonight

But I still recall the smile on your face
But it always has been
Always will be too late

Are you lost
Are you lost & gone
Did it all go wrong
Yeah I'll hang my head
And sing my song
Yeah, I'm right where I belong
Track Name: Exist
Why does my love still exist
Still persist

You thought you were free
To feel is a catastrophe
What you thought was unique
Is just the way you're wired to think
Track Name: Dénouement
I'm not dead
I am alive
I am awake
And I am great
And I am more than you can take
And I suggest that you awake
Before it's too late
Before you seal your fate

And I will not walk away
I will stand right here until the line breaks
Whatever the stakes
Whatever it might take
I will not escape
And I feel inside of me
My strengths begin to breathe
My fears are released
I have everything I need
And this is not the end
This is just the beginning
It's time for you to take your place

And the world is not the same
Everything is different now
Everything is changed
This is where we go into the unknown
Into the setting sun
Where everything is right and just where it belongs
