Track Name: King of Cruel
Yesterday is all a blur
But I remember you talking to her
And me, running away in tears
Today I find myself so lost
Thinking of all the time it cost
Me to find you and give you all my love

I sailed an ocean with high hopes and all you did
Was let me down
The water swallowed me
And all you did was watch me drown
I was such a fool
For thinking you’d love me,
King of Cruel

The weeks drone on day after night
I live my life in black and white
I've given up the tiring fight
So you could win again
But now I stand my ground, I rise
Good luck to you, fighting the tide
It’ll reel you in and spit you out
And you will lose this time

I sailed an ocean with high hopes and all you did
Was let me down
The water swallowed me
And all you did was watch me drown
I was such a fool
For thinking you’d love me,
King of Cruel

Locked inside your kingdom
Thrown away with all the other broken hearts, hearts,
Where is your heart, heart?

Oh no, I sailed an ocean with high hopes and all you did
Was let me down
The water swallowed me
And all you did was watch me drown
I was such a fool, I was such a fool, I was such a fool
For thinking you’d love me,
King of Cruel
Track Name: Lift Me
Won’t you be the one to lift me?
I’ve been buried for so long
Lost with no sense of desire
Numb with the fear I don’t belong

Forgiveness is the key to be happy
Will you forgive me,
When I say I’m sorry
‘Cause these words on a page
hold the remains
Of a love that was lost
And cannot be saved

I love you
And I trust you
To never give up on us

Every day’s a living nightmare
Tryna get by when you’re not there
‘Cause my true colors only show when I’m with you
I try to pretend I know myself but it’s no use
I need you, I want you

Forgiveness is the key to be happy
Will you forgive me,
When I say I’m sorry?
‘Cause these words on a page hold the remains
Of a love that was lost
And cannot be saved

I love you
And I trust you
To never give up on us

Can’t hold back these tears now, baby
I wish you were here now, baby
Won’t you stay here with me?
Oh, oh, won’t you stay?

Forgiveness is the key to be happy
Will you forgive me,
When I say I’m sorry?
‘Cause these words on a page hold the remains
of a love that was lost
and cannot be saved

I love you. And I trust you
To never give up on us
And I love you. And I trust you
And I love you. And I trust you
Track Name: Long Shot
You got a one way ticket down a one way road
And you’re driving fast but you gotta long way to go
You’re a long shot, yeah
See the flashing lights and the stop sign ahead
But you race right past, you know everybody said
That you’re a long shot, guess they’re right

I don’t give a damn what they think about me
Cause I know who I am, you said
Let them say what they wanna say
It doesn’t change anything
You’re gonna get in trouble someday, acting like this
I’m just living life as I see it
And they gotta deal with it

Yeah, you gotta deal with it

You’re talking non-stop, can’t shut your mouth
Everybody sees that you’re heading down the wrong route
Cause you’re a long shot, yeah
You got heaven in your eyes but you’re heading to hell
Everybody knows and you do just as well
That you’re a long shot, but you’re not gonna tell

I don’t give a damn what they think about me
Cause I know who I am, you said
Let them say what they wanna say
It doesn’t change anything
You’re gonna get in trouble someday, acting like this
You said, I’m just living life as I see it
And they gotta deal with it,
Yeah, they gotta deal with it
Yeah, they gotta deal with it

You got a one way ticket down a one way road
And you’re driving fast but you got a long way to go
You’re a long shot (You’ve got a one way ticket down a one way road
And you’re driving too fast you got a long way to go)
You’ve got a one way ticket down a one way road
and you’re driving fast but you’ve got a long way to go
You’re a long shot
You’re a long shot
You’re a long shot
Track Name: Something or Nothing
Get out of your head, get out of your bed
Get out into the real world, instead
I’m living like I’m dead, I’m dead, I’m dead
I just wanna sleep but it’s too much effort to dream
So I tell myself to forget everything
But it all comes back, comes rushing back

And there are no perfect people in a world
Where we think less than worthy, am I less than worthy?
Voices in my head tell me I’m living life wrong
Singing the same song, well
Am I something or nothing to you? To you? To you?
Am I something or nothing to you?

Looks can be deceiving
I can make you believe that I’m happy
When I’m frowning on the inside
But I try, I try, I try
To be smiling, oh I keep climbing
This tall mountain, till I reach the top
Cause I won’t stop

And there are no perfect people in a world
Where we think less than worthy, am I less than worthy?
The voices in my head tell me I’m living life wrong
Singing the same song, well
Am I something or nothing to you? To you? To you?
Am I something or nothing to you?

Oh, oh, living life wrong singing the same song
Oh, oh, living life wrong singing the same song, well
Am I something or nothing to you? To you? To you?
Am I something or nothing to you?
Track Name: Move On
I don’t wanna run away
But you leave me no choice
I don’t wanna stay angry, but you’re so damn unreasonable
I want you to be happy, please
Stop being mad at me, this
Silence is deafening,
I just wanna tell you that

You left me, you don’t get me back
It’s too late for that, but I hope we can move past
The drama, oh—you gotta know
I thought you were the one, but it’s time to move on

You can’t run away from me, you’re already knee-deep
In your problems, you’re the only one who can solve them
Why do you feel the need, to get back at me?
I didn’t do anything, so take the blame
Oh, what a shame

You left me, you don’t get me back
It’s too late for that, but I hope we can move past
The drama, oh—you gotta know
I thought you were the one, but it’s time to move on

You left me, you don’t get me back
It’s too late for that, but I hope we can move past
The drama, oh—you gotta know
I thought you were the one, but it’s time to move on
Track Name: Absence of Color
Gray days, rainy skies
Stormy lies, your sullen eyes, staring into mine
Like it was our last chance
Pray to a God that I don’t believe in
Cause I just need one good reason
For all the wrong we’ve done each other

Cause your face is like a patch of sunshine
With the occasional obscuring cloud
Don’t know why we pick on each other
When we’re feeling down

So come on, I need your positivity
Tell me how you see the beauty
All I see, the absence of color you used to be
A brilliant shade, shining sky blue
Now all I see all you are to me is
The absence of color

Storm clouds soften but the rose thorns sharpen
They cut through the silence ‘til it’s bleeding
A petal floats to the ground I hear your voice in my head now
Having your heart broken feels like you’re wilting
Like a flower

But your face is like a patch of sunshine
Maybe it’ll strengthen my roots
And may this newfound hope flourish
Till it surpasses your wildest excuse

So come on, I need your positivity
Tell me how you see the beauty
All I see, the absence of color you used to be
A brilliant shade, shining sky blue
But now all I see, all you are to me is
The absence of color

So come on, I need your positivity
Tell me how you see the beauty
All I see, the absence of color you used to be
A brilliant shade, shining sky blue
Now all I see, all you are to me is
Gone

So come on, I need your positivity
Tell me how you see the beauty
All I see is the absence of color you used to be
A brilliant shade, shining sky blue
Now all I see, all you are to me is
The absence of color
