Track Name: Sidestepping Landmines
I don't know what was going on
around inside my head?
I should have ran straight for the door,
when the flags were turning red.
Now in hindsight I guess you could say that
I was the fool?
Always go with your gut, isn't that
the golden rule?

And that landmine is you
Yeah you know what I'm gonna do?
Thank my lucky stars
I got out with barely any scars

Maybe it because you were
The opposite of what I had?
That didn't seem to work out Huh?
In fact it's just as bad.
And change is never good
When you lose sight of who ya wanna be
And your ideas of life and love
Were never meant for me

Maybe if I could have been something I am not
Then it's possible, we could have had a shot?
The things that filled you with pride
never were for me
And you couldn't live without it
Now that's plain to see
Track Name: Did it Again
Hey there princess can you refrain
From getting captured once again
Guess it's hard just being you
But there's only so much saving I can do
Every time its all the same
I starting to think you think its
Just a game

You did it again
Then you did it again
Then you did it
Then you did it
Then you did it again

How much runnin' do you think I can do?
I'm not even sure this time I...
...wanna rescue you
I hope when stories are told
They talk of my bravery
But with my luck
I'll be forgotten throughout history

The princess is captured again
Good god she's been captured again and again
Oh the princess, yeah the princess
Son of a bitch is captured again
And here we go again...
Track Name: Reality?
Put another pill inside her
Cause you think that will make her right?
And give her just another warning
When she looses her shit at night

Is she angry, is she sad
Is she good, is she bad
You'll never know
Because they're so...
Hidden from reality

There goes another drink inside of him
He says he needs it to relax
And when you tell him he should
get some help soon
He denies every fact

Is he angry, is he sad
Is he good, is he bad
You'll never know
Because they're so...
Hidden from reality

Common sense is so rare
It should be a super power
Hope is so hard to come by these days
I have a question to ask of you...?

Can you make just one decision
that doesn't lack some common sense?
And will you ever choose to pick a side?
Or will you stay upon that fence?

Come on come on come on!

Are they angry, are they sad
Are they good, are they bad
You'll never know
Because they're so...
Hidden from reality
Track Name: Ode to Him
Maybe this is his last song
Maybe this is where he belongs
With one last mighty
Ode to Him
You may know the legends well
If you met him you could tell
Your future generations well
all about him

Lay down you head
When you come to his pad
Everything is true what they said
All about him
If you meet him you'll be glad
When he leaves you'll be so sad
If you don't you'll be oh so mad
That you missed him
Let me tell you all the story
How he rose to his glory
In the morning you will wake up and smile
When he hold you so tight
You will know that it's right
But the world is his delight
Don't you ever try and tie him down

Sit back relax in his arms
Submit yourself to his charms

Maybe this is his last song
Maybe this is where he belongs
With one last mighty
Ode to Him
When he leaves you'll be so sad
If you met him you'll be glad
If you didn't, you'll be so mad
That you missed him

He is the smooth operator
Track Name: Used up all our happy?
Have we used up all our happy?
When I had the heart of a younger boy
We shared so much, we shared so much joy
Driving blindly round through the town
Follow dreams where we go
Nothing could ever come between us
Where did we go so wrong baby?
Never straying far from sight
Then we started confusing wrong from right

Do we begin
Do we begin again
Or is this the end

Have we used up all our happy?
Did we burn too bright
While climbing to a towering height
Can we get it back again baby?
Do you think it will return?
Or should we stop before we get burned

Do we begin
Do we begin again
Or is this the end

Have we used up all our happy?
Did we burn too bright?
Where did we go wrong baby...
when we confused wrong with right?

Have we used up all our happy?
Or did we burn too bright?
Track Name: World on Fire
Stand alone upon a mountain
Looking down on the land
Can you tell me what went so wrong
I'll never understand
Did we not see all of the signs
As everything went straight to hell
All the fools up high and in charge
Didn't see the systems fail...NO!

Now the world's on fire
Ablaze across the land
We're down to the wire
The end is at hand

Warning signs they come and go
Mankind is much too slow
To ever change the wrong to right
The world's on fire tonight!

Stand alone upon a mountain
Looking down on the land
Can you tell me what went so wrong
I'll never understand...NO!

Warning signs they come and go
Mankind is much too slow
To ever change the wrong to right
The world's on fire tonight!
