Speak Your Mind

 

Go ahead and speak your mind,

Say what you mean don't hide behind…

…oh that fake smile on your face

Oh your pretty face is saving you for now

 

Go ahead and speak your mind,

Oh your pretty face is saving you for now

 

All these people thinking you're sincere…

Hopefully someday, they will see clear

You're good at what do and you know it

You're fooling everyone but can't get me 

 

Go ahead and speak your mind,

Say what you mean don't hide behind…

…oh that fake smile on your face

Oh your pretty face is saving you for now

 

Maybe it's a self esteem issue

But you're lying to yourself It's true

 

And you can't get enough of it

You see yourself on fire again

 

Go ahead and speak your mind,

Say what you mean don't hide behind…

…oh that fake smile on your face

Oh your pretty face is saving you for now

 

Go ahead and speak your mind

The Road

 

Time goes by so fast...
Take me back, back to the innocence of my youth
I'm having a blast
Wondering how your lies are now becoming the truth

 

Did I miss the road ?
This obvious path is simply fading away
No need to reload
I don't wanna play.

 

Time goes by so fast...
Can't you remember the smile that I had on my face
Well it didn't last
It's not the kind of life that I want to embrace 

Did I miss the road ?
This obvious path is simply fading away
No need to reload
I don't wanna play.

 

like you do
like you do

 

We count on you
How can you let go
We'll make it new
don't break our hope

 

I'm not sure, I could even go back then
'Cause evertyhing would surely start all over again
I'm not sure, I could even go back then
Makes me sick to see the world has gone insane

 

Did I miss the road ?
This obvious path is simply fading away
No need to reload
I don't wanna play.

 

like you do
No I don't wanna play
like you do

No I don't wanna play

like you do
No I don't wanna play
like you do

No I don't wanna play

Aiming Higher

 

I feel so fine

As I walk through the door

I know this day is mine

I know there’s something more

 

I have been waiting

Too long to make a move

Let’s become my own king

Don’t look as if you disapprove

 

Cause I will play

The game of my life

And that’s OK

If you wanna laugh

 

I feel so fine

As I walk through the door

I know the sun will shine

Like it never did before

 

I will  play

The game of my life

And that’s OK

If you wanna laugh

 

No matter what you think

You gotta know I am on fire

I’m saying goodbye to the weak

To start aiming higher

 

And I can’t change history

So let’s focus on what’s coming

This feeling is a mystery

I’m finally ready

 

Ready to change

A side of me that’s always been locked away

Ready to change

A side of me that’s always been locked away

 

Away…

away …

away …

away…

Good Times

 

Sing loud, dance along, make the silence run away
Like you should keep doing it everyday
In every way
Don't stop in any way

Your heart, like a gong, is beating to the sound we make
Your legs are relaxing and now they shake
Let's make no mistake
We're watching if you fake

Don't miss the party today

We play for the good times we have
Forgetting our worries
I'll sing untill my voice wont let me

So now you stand there, pretending like you do not care
We're trying hard right now and you're not fair
And the way you stare...
Who do you wanna scare ?

We play for the good times we have
Forgetting our worries
I'll sing till my voice wont let me

We play for the good times we have
Forgetting our worries
I'll sing till my voice wont let me

Let it go, just for the moment can't you
Let it go, find how to be yourself in
The whole crowd, it won't happen on its own
It's your call, drop the facade it's time to

Let it go, just for the moment can't you
Let it go, find how to be yourself in
The whole crowd, it won't happen on its own
It's your call, drop the facade right now

We play for the good times we have
Forgetting our worries
I'll sing till my voice wont let me

We play for the good times we have


Forgetting our worries
I'll sing till my voice wont let me

Let it go
Let it go
Let it go
Let it go

Bottom of the Pit

The city's a home for my pain
I'm sleeping outside again
Oh I used to be one of them
And nobody cares

The same fears everyday...
I'm withering all away
Oh I'm still breathing the same air
But nobody cares

What was my crime
To deserve it
I've done my time
At the bottom of the pit

A Blanket and some cheap whiskey
to warm my frozen body
Oh my face is  hitting concrete
and nobody hears

Countless feet passing by
stepping over where I lie
indifference is all I can see
I'm down on my knees...

And I'm praying one last time, for something to change
But it's always the same

The city's a home for my pain
I'm sleeping outside again
Oh I used to be one of them
And nobody cares

One last night and I'm gone
I'm tired being alone
Oh the street finally got te me
No one will notice

What was my crime
To deserve it
I've done my time
At the bottom of the pit

And I'm praying one last time, for something to change
but it's always the same
And I'm praying again, for something to change
it's always the same, it's always the same
