Track Name: Let Me Be Your Story 
Let Me Be Your Story

You believe everything that you read, the text messages, the magazines. All that you want and all that you need will all be compromised, why don’t you realize? You go to work but you’re facing a wall. You want that big house by the waterfall. Do you really buy that dream? There’s no direct line that goes to cloud nine. [Chorus: Don’t be silly, we ain’t got all the time in the world, you gotta move on, you know I got your back, the sun is high, so rise & shine. Let me be your story. Let’s enjoy while we can. Let me be your story just wait and see, you never know where this could end]. It’s hard to tell what you’re waiting for, I wish your mind had an open door. I feel for you like you feel for me, why the lonely nights, why can’t we get it right? [Chorus]. You gotta push, push, push the button. You gotta break the glass, move on, move on. [Chorus]. Let me be your story.
Track Name: Natural Reaction
Natural Reaction

Don’t know why I used to think that regrets were for the weak. I got these flashes in my head they keep playing hide and seek. It’s late at night and I should be getting back to sleep. [Pre-chorus: Instead of counting my mistakes I should be counting sheep]. Listen to the voice saying If only I could to turn back the clock, I’m 25 now just turning 18, ‘cause you’re the
best thing that happened to me. Yeah you’re the best thing that happened to me. I could give it another chance, I could write my own story. This time I’ll be leading the dance, I’m digging deeper in the memories. [Pre-chorus]. If only I could to turn back the clock, I’m 25 now just turning 18, ‘cause you’re the best thing that happened to me. Don’t bail on me now, don’t give up on me. And I could get all the satisfaction. Got second thoughts it’s a natural reaction. ‘cause you’re the best thing that happened to me. Yeah you’re the best thing that happened to me. Second thoughts are a natural reaction. Natural reaction... Don’t give up on me If only I could to turn back the clock, I’m 25 now just turning 18. ‘cause you’re the best thing that happened to me. Yeah you’re the best thing that happened to me. You’re the best thing that ever happened to me.
Track Name: Sound Museum
Sound Museum
I guess you’re gonna have to try just a little bit harder, babe. You’re gonna need a helping hand, a loaded gun or a hit man, yeah. I guess you threw all my mixtapes out in the trash, I bet. And there’s gotta be some bands I hate that he plays loud in our room. Let me get even or you’ll never go to heaven. We used to get along, but it’s a whole different song, now. I guess you’re gonna have to try just a little bit harder. I guess you’re gonna have to try just a little bit harder babe.
Track Name: My Groove
My Groove

Don’t go now I’ve got a few more things to say, ‘cause you stole my moves and ruined everybody’s mood. It’s that kind of situation, when the first to leave wins the game. I’m the loser, don’t you think it’s a shame? [Chorus: Someone’s gonna give it back to you. Someone’s gonna give it back to you. It’s alright, I’m not gonna cry now. Just wait until the next time around]. Hold your breath, it’s gonna be tough for a while. I’m on a different groove, sorry to break the news. It’s that kind of situation when you’re losing more than what you gain. What a sad conclusion, I refuse to take the blame. [Chorus].
Track Name: Wonderboy
Wonderboy

‘Say you’re going to the top but you don’t know when to stop. I can tell what’s coming up, we should run & hide. Go and reach inside your pocket for a button to shoot the rocket. [Chorus x2: Not because you’re right, not because you’re wrong most of the time. Not because you’re bright. Take your stupid mind and spend more time in the Guggenheim]. ‘Say you’re going to stop, but you don’t know when, when to stop, when to stop. I can tell what’s coming up, we should run & hide. You should care, this song’s about you. All of your lies are finally shining through. When to stop, when to stop, go and reach inside your pocket. When to stop, when to stop, for a button to shoot the rocket. [Chorus x2]. Lemme say goodbye, hope you find another partner in crime.
Track Name: Hurts
Hurts

All I wanna do is sit alone in the sun. I don’t wanna say I’m sorry it came undone, ‘cause for a while that’s all we did. All I’m asking you know is to walk away from my life. [Chorus: I know you think it hurts but I’ve been through so much worse. I bet you got it wrong the moment you laid your eyes on me. Don’t think you’re the first, the last, God or my universe. Time to move on, pack your stuff and run away]. I know you’re going to smile and pretend it’s fun. I know you’ll never feel (no you’ll never feel) sorry for anyone but only a fool could have stayed that long. All I’m asking you now is to walk away from my life. [Chorus]. Time to move on, pack your stuff and run away. [Chorus].
Track Name: To Anyone
To Anyone

To anyone who’d love to see me falling, to anyone who’d love to see me wasted. Hello there, you’ll never guess who’s back out of nowhere, from a cul-de-sac. I tried to break the mould while digging for gold. Time to get back on the road, time to change up the dress code, let’s join the twilight zone. I’m gonna prove everybody wrong. [Chorus: To anyone who’d love to see me falling (love to say hi) To anyone who’d love to see me wasted (love to say hi)]. I don’t fear, not my darkest hour. Don’t care about my fading powers. With only one exception, I learnt my lesson. Time to start the carnival where everything is possible. Am I too blind to see what’s right in from me? [Chorus x2].
Track Name: Strung
Strung

If seeing is believing, I know you are for real. The gift that keeps on giving is quite hard to conceal. If you ever have to move on I promise to be strong. [Chorus: Sometimes I disconnect from my own reality. Sometimes I disconnect I get lost so easily. I don’t know what I’m gonna do, I guess I’m scared of losing you]. Who’s got the upper hand? I haven’t got a clue. My confidence is on the mend I owe it all to you. If you really gotta move on, I promise I’ll be strong. [Chorus x2]
Track Name: Turning point
Turning Point

You don’t miss me, you miss a time in your life when everything seemed so much easier. Do you remember? You used to dream about the future now it’s the fear that keeps you up at night. [Chorus: I-I wanna be where you are, it’s just sometimes I don’t know where I’m going. Oh please don’t, don’t leave me standing here, it feels like I’m boxing my own shadow]. You’re tempted, you’re tempted too easily, that’s what I like about you, that’s what scares me too. It’s been a while now, oh I need more of this. Am I asking too much? maybe I’m losing touch... [Chorus]. I realized that I was on a wrong path. I knew that I had to change and mature. Feels like I stepped back and saw right through myself. It was the turning point. [Chorus]. I’m boxing my own shadow, boxing my own shadow.
Track Name: Jokers
Jokers

Post-modernism took you by surprise while you were people-watching at the cafeteria. You were in there writing a book about all your nightmares, God you looked so serious. [Pre-chorus: But the little boy was a she, we fell asleep while watching our DVD]. [Chorus: Cold tears in the wintertime, that’s what you mean to me now. Cold tears in the wintertime, so much that I almost drowned. It’s all over now, it’s all over now, my mind kept working overtime to clean up the mess, just to ease all the stress of those... cold tears in the wintertime]. Fresh water thrown in my face like you suddenly care about the human race? Frustration is your frozen meal I hope you eat it fast and burn your tongue for real. [Pre-chorus]. [Chorus x2].
