Track Name: New Day
You say its a new day
and you’ll finally get what's coming to you
yeah - yeah,
It’s out with the old ways
all your bad habits falling into
sha - a - atters.

You’d always hoped for a clean slate
All your friends said its just too late…
f©¢k what they say.

And it’s not too late.

You say its a new day
oh your little life’s finally come
to-ge-ther,
you don’t care what they say
oh your little life’s finally
going somewhere.

Face it,
You weren't who you wanted to be
most of the time
and stepping back, its clear to see
that you’ve been blinded
by the light that shines to unhide your lies
if you’ve really changed you won't compromise

if you've really changed you won’t compromise

And its not too late.

You say its a new day
and you’ll finally get what’s coming to you.
Track Name: Grudge
Listen up, this is going down,
you’re the queen of fights
you can keep the crown
You’ll love to wear it all the time.

Its true I lied but you still hold tight
to resentment from such an ancient fight,
you’re blinded by your own darkened skies.

You’re hanging on for dear life to
your self inflicted pain. You’re insane,
but you keep me wondering…

Oh, Oh
Are you ever gonna let (it) go (oooooeeeeeoooooo)
can you ever just forgive all the grudges that you hold.

Verse 2
You twist my words before they’re out
with little question or any doubt
(But) we both know we’ve had this fight before

It’s hard i know just to let it go
but the pain is old ( but i’ve moved on), and you’re still feeling alone

Oh, Oh
Are you ever gonna let (it) go (oooooeeeeeoooooo)
can you ever just forgive all the grudges that you hold.
Oh, Oh
Are you ever gonna let (it) go (oooooeeeeeoooooo)
can you ever just forgive all the grudges that you hold.

Its bad enough I want you,
and even through (underneath) it all you want to.
So forgive me or not
you’ve heard (or; I’ve said) all I’ve got
the choice is up to you.

Oh, Oh
Are you ever gonna let (it) go (oooooeeeeeoooooo)
can you ever just forgive all the grudges that you hold.
Oh, Oh
Are you ever gonna let (it) go (oooooeeeeeoooooo)
can you ever just forgive all the grudges that you hold.
Track Name: Recycled Dreams
My life flashes before my eyes,
and I cant say its much surprise
recycled dreams are all we ever had.
It doesn’t ever seem too clear
thats why I keep you close in fear
of drifting off, I’m drifting in my head.

Tell me so. (oh-we-oh)
Do you know (oh-we-oh-we-oh)
What lies ahead for me?

(oh-we-oh) Now my life’s a little louder,
(oh-we-oh) I’ve got so much to say.
I’m breaking down doors and cutting old chains
cause I’m sick of living like everyday is the same.

You walk your walk and just walk by,
You’re unaware, no telling why.
I’m falling victim to myself again.
It’s not enough to just pretend,
I need to know, when will this end?
these city lights have left me all but blind.

Tell me so. (oh-we-oh)
Do you know (oh-we-oh-we-oh)
What lies ahead for me?

(oh-we-oh) Now my life’s a little louder,
(oh-we-oh) I’ve got so much to say.
I’m breaking down doors and cutting old chains
cause I’m sick of living like everyday is the same.

(oh-we-oh) Now my life’s a little louder,
(oh-we-oh) I’ve got so much to say.
I’m breaking down doors and cutting old chains
cause I’m sick of living
like everybody’s singing
there’s got to be a better way

(oohh-e-ooo) And my life’s a little louder,
(oohh-e-ooo) I’ve got so much to say.
I’m breaking down doors and cutting old chains
cause I’m sick of living like everyday is the same.
Track Name: Move Out Day
A hard sigh, and I slam the door.
it had been a rough night on the floor,
I grab the last of my things and take the stairs to the car.
Nowhere to go but the lease is up
I could just use a little luck
to get me back to where I’m supposed to be.

And you
stare at me blankly till I’m sane,
then knock me off my feet again, oh yeah.
I’d hesitate to stay, but I gotta get away.
I close my eyes tight and wish for better days.

I’m on the move, I’ve got nothing left to lose.
Leave it all behind tonight, I won’t need it where I’m going to.
Far from the only place I knew.
Its hard to tell the truth sometimes, but I wont change my mind.
I’m starting up.

what the hell is going on, all accounts are overdrawn
the deposit’s gone, this is such a joke
everything i touch goes up in smoke.
so now i have to go, I’m gonna make this world my own
I’m off into the deep unknown.

Cause I’m on the move, I’ve got nothing left to lose.
Leave it all behind tonight, I won’t need it where I’m going to.
Far from the only place I knew.
Its hard to tell the truth sometimes, but I wont change my mind.
I’m starting up.
