Human Again

Hello world
when did you forget
how to live
We walk so fucking far
to prove who we are
that we left everything behind
Acting like we're worthless
So far from perfect
We forgot what it meant
To be human again

Bury me
under the weight
of this hypocracy
I can't breathe anymore
You said you wouldn't
But it's never hurt so much
Don't pray for me I'm too far gone

i'm dreaming about the days
The days before we got so stupid
Fighting wars that don't belong
Living a lie thats another trump
We pledge allegance to fear and hate
Steping back in time proving we don't belong
When will we wake up and smell the roses
When will we become human again

We fight so hard
To show the world
How strong we think we are
Truth is
We break without a second thought
It's a mask
A world of lies we live behind
And it's shame
How fucked up we became
Will we ever be human again

Goodbye Peace

Take a look at me
Take a look at you
We're just two fools
Without a clue
What we're doing here

There was a time
I thought we knew it all
We were invincible
Indestructible
Now we're staring concrete
In the face
When did our sense of peace disappear?

We fall apart
But act like
We're so fucking normal
When we're
Worse than the 1900's
The Great Depression
Ain't got nothing on us

Are we still on the same page
Little nightmare?
Are we still singing
The same tune
To this lullaby?
Are we gonna say goodnight
Or fall apart?
While we still fight this war
We keep losing our peace

I'm hanging on the edge
Screaming does this really matter
We're roaring, but never heard
We fight, but it means nothing at all
We're searching for a light
In the depths of this eclipse
We're a dying race
What happened to our peace
We once held dear?

When did we lose
Our direction
We fell asleep at the wheel
Annihilated our light
When will we wake up?
Wake up!
Goodbye peace

KIDS (Story Of The Renegades)

So tell me what I’m here for?
What am I supposed to do?
Cause lately it feels like
We’re just going through the motions
Praying to God, we make it through

We used to be the renegades
The invincible
But now we’re fading out
Terminated at our own game
And it has never hurt so much

Can you tell me
How pointless this is?
Can you see
How broken we are?
We gave up
The best part of us
Just to grow up

What happened to the days
Of our Neverland
We were kids
Living our dreams
Singing our songs
It was so fucking easy
To be whatever we wanted
Staying out all night
Till the morning sky

I wanna take everything
That’s ever killed a part of me
And write it down
We’ll write our stories
On these papers
And we’ll burn them down
We’re on to something new, now
We’re building out of ashes
Out of smoke, everything we once were
Will never leave, but make new
We are the renegades

Shooting Stars and Lullabies

Have you ever thought about the days
If we would just runaway
Say goodbye to everyone
And everything around

Have you ever thought about
What we could be
If we got away, from this place
And never looked back

I dream about the day
That I’m free
Begging to be away from everything
As I scream this lullaby
Just to fall asleep
I pray these skeletons
Just let me be
For one more peaceful night
Before I’m gone

Can we go back
To the days that wouldn’t last
And just breathe
Cause I’m still counting every star
Every single night
Since you left me here, alone

I’m still chasing dreams
Of nights that weren’t meant to last
Wishing on every shooting star
So I can breathe
I’ll scream this lullaby

Till the day I catch my breath

Just Fine

(Verse1)
So why don’t we
Make these memories last
While you sing with me
About the past
And how they said
We’d be nothing
Without them

(Chorus)
Let these scars bleed
And show them
How we don’t care at all
We’re moving on
And doing just fine
We never needed them anyway

(Verse2)
Here I am
Living in peace
With the fact
That I only need me
They said I wouldn’t get far
Without them
That’d I’d stand to fall again
They just never understood
Who I am

(Verse3)
Don’t hold me responsible
For your own misery
Don’t make this about me
When you’re sad you never made it past
You’re the only one
Holding yourself back

Believe

(Verse1)
I used to believe in 
Happy ever after’s
But now I know
I’ll never be
Cause I can’t stand
These stereotypes
These stupid lies
All those fucking fights
It’s just not worth my time

(Chorus)
So I’ll just fake this smile
If it’s the last one you’ll ever see
Cause I can’t take another loss
Another hit, before I just call it quits
So I’ll just live like a rolling stone
Going anywhere but home
I hope I never see you again

(Verse2)
I used to believe in fairytales
But now I know
These heroes don’t exist
Cause I’m the villain every time 
And my own worst enemy

(End)
I’m done with all this bullshit
Every fight, every stereotype
Let it die with every single lie
I’m on my way out
But I’ll always believe in happy endings

So Far Gone

(Verse 1)
I’m beginning feel like I’m just the villain
Of this life, of this world
Like all I've ever said was just forgotten
And it never meant anything at all

(Bridge)
Watching it just pass me by
Like a fucking metronome
There is no light
And there is no end

(Chorus)
I can’t find the nerve to say it’s alright
But I’ll find a way out
I can’t find the nerve to say I’m okay
Just look at me and say
We’ll make it out alive, we’ll be okay

(Tag)
It takes so little to fall apart
But everything the put the pieces
Back together again

(Verse 2)
I’m the cynic of my own story
The only one who never grew up
Cause I’m just so jaded
With everything around

Watching it just pass me by
Like a fucking metronome

(End)
I’ll just sit behind these paper walls
Writing down everything that hurts
Till nothing bleeds anymore
I’ll watch it burn
Till I find the nerve to say
Everything is okay
