Track Name: Time (Another Epidemic)
Fix the problems in between the walls that are my skull,
Stop the words that pour from my lips when I'm tired.
And I don't know how to fix the problem in my brain,
But I know that it takes time, it takes time.

If you wanna fix me, baby,
Come on closer,
We'll give up all our time.

And if you wanna help me, baby,
Come on closer,
We'll give up all the gifts that God gave us
So we can buy ourselves more
Time.

Life seems to be heading down a steep and narrow road,
I try to straighten out my thoughts, to no avail.
And I gotta screw my head on right, see straight ahead.
But I know that I'll be fine, I'll be fine.

If you wanna fix me, baby,
Come on closer,
We'll give up all our time.

And if you wanna help me, baby,
Come on closer,
We'll give up all the gifts that God gave us
So we can buy ourselves more
Time.
Track Name: I am Angry and This Song Reflects That
I'd like to take a moment out my day,
To hear you out,
to hear the words you say.
I won't pretend to know a thing about,
The way you look at him.

For someone like you to give in to that,
Something must have gone wrong.
Things don't feel quite the same now,
And the nights are getting long (too long).

I'd like to see the fatal flaw in that,
Your neat little revenge plan.
You turned your back
On all that you stood for,
Look where you're heading now.

For someone like you to give in to that,
Something must have gone wrong.
Things don't feel quite the same anymore,
And the nights are getting long (too long).

Bring attention back to the woman who dies without a name, (dies without a name)
Look at what you're doing to your sisters in their chains (sisters in their chains)
Understand the consequences of your own agenda,
Acknowledge the damage.

For someone like you to give in to that,
Something must have gone wrong.
Things don't feel quite the same anymore,
And the nights are getting long (too long).
Track Name: Teenaged Lightning
We can stay here all night,
And watch shooting stars fly by.
Picture the perfect world
One without the baggage
Of last century’s damage,
Without the fear of dying young.

And as quick as we return to Earth
It seems we disappear,
Doesn’t it seem frightening?
We’re teenaged lightning.
In a flash of coloured smoke we’re here
Embracing the thunder,
Of a world gone under
We're teen, we're teen, we're teenaged lightning.
We're teen, we're teenaged lightning.
We're teen, we're teenages lightning.

So you bring yourself close to me.
Whisper in my ear and set me free.
It doesn’t feel right to be alone
When I'm not with you I feel I've left home.
Thank the stars we’re alive,
Walk with me, we'll watch the others
Pass by, drive by, walk by.

And as quick as we return to Earth
It seems we disappear,
Doesn’t it seem frightening?
We’re teenaged lightning.
In a flash of coloured smoke we’re here,
Embracing the thunder
Of a world gone under.
We're teen, we're teen, we're teenaged lightning,
We're teen, we're teenaged lightning,
We're teen, we're teenaged lightning.
Track Name: Jacko
You took the good times and the bad times,
and you pushed em' all down into one,
and you took em' all
away with you when you left.

The good days, the bad days
And the tricks and the nicknames,
the words and taunts you'd say,
Just to wind me up.

The long nights and the bad advice,
and the bad plans, bad thoughts
that we all had when we thought
we were giving up.

Jacko, you don't know what you've done,
to my thoughts and to your meds.
Jacko, I want you to fix them,
but you're already halfway dead.
Jacko, please don't let me stop you,
I'm just sick of losing friends.
Jacko, I can't help you fix the problems
settled in your head.

We'd share cigarettes outside in a-
-bandoned buildings,
and we'd sit down on the concrete,
beside the bugs that crawled around.

Cardboard and the plastic sheets,
and the metal bin where we hid our treats
that helped us see tomorrow,
if we used them carefully.

Do you remember the talks we had?
Conversations about being sad,
and the holes we couldn't dig our way out of,
after falling in.


Jacko, you don't know what you've done,
to my thoughts and to your meds.
Jacko, I want you to fix them,
but you're already halfway dead.
Jacko, please don't let me stop you,
I'm just sick of losing friends.
Jacko, I can't help you fix the problems
settled in your head.
Track Name: Untitled
And all the drugs
Never got you anywhere
Except face down in the dirt,
Just ripping out your hair
And you sure
Lost a lot of weight
I don’t think I can bring myself to care

My dad he told me
Not to drag along
The ones who break you, hurt you, diss you,
Drag you down into the mud.
I think you might be becoming that.
I don’t want to say goodbye
But it’s just self preservation

Did you ever stop to
Consider dying young?
Did you ever stop and think that
You’d be looking down on us?
Did you ever stop to think
I’d be cutting you out and writing a song.
Did you ever stop to think
That you’d be the one that’s in the wrong?

Now you’re just a casualty
Another statistic,
A damaged teenager
Standing in the light of something
You can’t bring yourself to be brighter than.
Oh, I hope you manage soon.
It wears me out to think of you.

Did you ever stop to think
To consider dying young?
Did you ever stop to think
You’d be looking down on all of us?
Did you ever stop to think
I’d be singing this song and cutting you out?
Did you ever stop to think
You’d be the one that’s in the wrong?
