Track Name: Five Star Failure
I'm the best at failing certainly but that makes me best at something
(I know which one I would prefer)
You're not the worst at winning naturally I've got nothing on your charm
(I know which one I would prefer)
If winning isn't everything then I could say that you've got nothing
(I know which one I would prefer)
And breaking mirrors with each lonely glace beats failing life hands down
(I know which one I would prefer)

Don't expect from me what you hope to achieve
I'm nothing compared to you
But the question is do I want to be?
I'm nothing compared to you
I know which one I would prefer

You've got such expectations
That I can't live up to again
Waste my time
It's all I do in your eyes
I will not be
What you want me to be
Track Name: Every Hopeless Dream
As she looked out of her window
Hoping it could never get
As bad as this again
Little did she know
That there was someone
Somewhere waiting for the chance
To make amends
And take the time to show
With every word he said

If you can honestly forget it
I'd be happy to let it go
It won't hurt you if you don't let it
Let me be the one to show
That every word I say to you
Means all the world to me

But as he screamed
Each word from the top of his lungs
She still didn't notice a thing
She was too caught up
To be able to see

Or was it just that their friendship
Meant more to her?
And she had seen before
How it could spoil everything
If she'd just take a chance
He could show her romance
And how good it could be

Take the time to try
And think up reasons why
I fight so hard
Maybe it's all that I have

If you could paint my perfect picture
It would show every hopeless dream
I keep to myself
In fear of facing reality

I can't stop now (I'll take my chance)
I'm too far gone (I'll take my chance)
And I'm just waiting for your hand (I'll take my chance)
To stop painting (I'll take my chance)
My perfect picture (I'll take my chance)
And make it real.
Track Name: Photo 13 (Oh So Fake)
When they turn and smile at you
You Should be wondering, wondering why
There's dishonesty in their eyes
Don't trust a single word they say

They love to hate the songs we sing
And hate to love the lines
They love to hate the songs we sing
And hate to love

Pull the book wide open
Read between the lines
You must be blind
To think that they are real
Don't search here for assistance
We'll redefine their lies
You must be blind
To think that they are real

Sparkle and shine and light the stage
(They love to hate you, they are so blind)
And show them how it's done
(They love to hate you, they are so blind)
They love to hate you, they are so blind
They're so blind
Track Name: The Pioneers
She said
I'm a lost cause
Waiting for you
Somebody to call my name
And I won't stop until I'm noticed

And he said
I'm craving all attention
That anyone can give
And I won't stop until I'm noticed

Stop trying to be (Stop trying to be)
Original
You'll only end up being the crowd
Why can't you be (Why can't you be)
Content with who you are
Stop trying to be (Stop trying to be)
Original
You'll only end up being the crowd
Why can't you be (Why can't you be)
Content with who you are

And they said
We've been noticed but
It is not enough
And we'll do anything to get
You to see
What it means to be
Original and different just like the rest

And it makes no sense
When you all claim to be
Pioneers of originality
Cos you all look the same
And you all dress the same
It's such a shame

You need this
You need this
To make yourselves fit in

You try so hard
To be the only one
But end up as a trend.
Track Name: One for the Kid
With each passing day
As the aching pain subsides
The memory stays ever strong
As we begin to find
That we can see
A way to make it through
To make it through
To make it through these longer days
That aren't the same without you

No one knows just what to feel
A chill runs through the room
The stage will never be the same without you
I'm wondering what to say to all these empty souls

I know you've never felt as lost as you do now
And you don't know where to go from here

Don't worry
Believe me

There is no right way for you to feel

Don't worry
Believe me

Because we're all there for you know

Don't hide away, don't hide away
He wouldn't want you to go it alone
(One for the kid)
We'll keep searching for better days
You don't have to do this on your own.
Track Name: Over and Out
I look around again
At all the faces that I know
And in this room full of friends
I feel so alone
I would have done anything
To see you safe from harm
But that was then

If I'm honest, which I always am
Then listen cos I barely know you
Complaining that I have changed
I'm the kid that you grew up with
And I'm different
But I've always been the odd one out
Not afraid to show
And I thought that
By now you would have worked that out
I don't want to be the same as you
I'd be better off alone

I'll walk away
Just to save your breath
I've broken my spine
Bending backwards to please you
If you're done with this
And that's what I mean to you
I'll break my spine
For someone else's time

Don't pretend you understand
Or care to show when you go.
