Burning Up 03:07
Every day i wake up and i’m asked whats on my mind looks like most of us have left our sanity behind What’s happening what’s happ’ning Got me feeling fight or flight are there any options left or is it only the alt right people starting arguments with strangers on a screen people only listen to the people they agree opinion pieces shared around but there’s no need for proof, in the information age where no one knows the truth so keep your head down gotta keep your head down keep your head down or you’re gonna get burned I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning up My big mouth has got me up to where i am today Who’d have thought my bigotry would get me so much pay they say “he who shouts the loudest is bound to be the best” With all this noise around me then i can ignore the rest We’ll get rich but say we can’t afford your doctors, schools or homes fingers crossed the public doesn’t look up from their phones People need distracting so a villain we must make Better drop some bombs or the economy will break so keep your head down gotta keep your head down keep your head down or you’re gonna get burned I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning up I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning up Marching through the streets for the many not the few I’m a social justice warrior and you can be one too. We want to get elected through a democratic vote but if you don’t agree with us then kindly go and slit your throat if you don’t agree with us, then go and slit your throat if you don’t agree with us, then go and slit your throat if you don’t agree with us, then go and slit your throat if you don’t agree with us then kindly go and slit your throat keep your head down gotta keep your head down keep your head down or you’re gonna get burned I don’t wanna keep my head down No i’ll never keep my head down i don’t wanna keep my head down i’m gonna get burned. I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning up I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning up I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning up I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning up

Good Night 04:22
Tell me a list of your hopes and your fears Then I’ll tell you mine as we fall through the night Turn the light off I’ll be everything you could envision So come take my hand. I’ll be double the man Turn the light off It’s been a while since I’ve felt this comfortable I’ll close my eyes cause I’m frankly surprised you’re still here So goodnight Though I won’t sleep at all You’re stopping time I’m losing my mind So goodnight Thought I won’t sleep at alI Our light’s still blinding Lost in time Morning comes and I’m stuck in a moment words are all forming but I can’t perform Turn my light on I’m not anything you should envision I’m half a man and our future is damned Leave the light off It’s been a while since I’ve felt this vulnerable I’ll close my eyes cause I’m frankly surprised you’re still here So goodnight Though I won’t sleep at all You’re stopping time I’m losing my mind So goodnight Thought I won’t sleep at alI Our light’s still blinding Lost in time There’s something not right in my head unworthy to be in this bed re-running each word that I said There’s something not right in my head unworthy to be in this bed re-running each word that I said So goodnight Though I won’t sleep at all You’re stopping time I’m losing my mind

TV Man 04:29
When I finished school I thought that i knew the score If i can’t get a job what the fuck am I living for All that i know is that i’m bored out of my mind Clenching my fist, containing this range I can’t define Worked zero hours this week watching tv shows escape to the country i can’t even escape the doll fed with distraction, i’m sick to my stomach with it now searching for answers in places i know they can’t be found tv man in tv land selling dreams and plans that lead your life astray Scrolling and trolling what am i looking for a pointless answer or red box to make a deal for consume to be happy it is all that i’ve been taught And I never noticed that it’s my soul that’s being bought tv man in tv land selling dreams and plans that lead your life astray Astray When I finished school i felt so self assured don’t know if i can afford to go on anymore tv man in tv land selling dreams and plans that lead your life astray Astray Astray

I was standing at the bar when i first saw you walk in it felt so easy to start, six months I’d love to live again Like a walk in the park until my demons began to sing and they said "when’s it gonna end cos in days gone past forever’s not been your friend" Fall in love, fall too soon should we ever really watch our feet as we walk to the tune of love and march on to it’s beat It’s a journey for two with separate paths that have to meet And i think Soon it has to end cos in years gone by, forevers not been my friend is it time to grow and does it show show i’ve got to let you know That despite my thoughts and despite your fears i don’t wanna let you go Now the bar from the start has gone but we still carry on though we’ve broken apart some times, has that just made us strong? We both carry the scars from the stupid things that we’ve done wrong It’s like we’ve tried to make this end but could it be forevers trying to be my Friend I think it’s time to grow I hope it shows i’ve got to let you know that despite my thoughts and despite your fears i don’t wanna let you go Will we ever learn Will we ever learn I don’t know It’s time to grow I hope it shows I feel it in my soul Yeah I’ve got let you know yeah whoa It’s time to grow I hope it shows i don’t wanna let you go
