Track Name: No way
Think you can tell me
What to think
Think that you convince me
No way no way

Think that I believe you
what you spin
think you know how to
no way no way

you may think that i
just swallow everything whole
and i won't deny
you really seem like your in control

think you can tell me
how to feel
think you control me
no way no way

think that i will
go hide in fear
won't use my own mind
no way no way

your delectable lies
to paint the sky all blue and bright
the things that you devise
to keep me all scared at night

Think you can tell me
What to think
Think that you convince me
No way no way

Think that I believe you
what you spin
think you know how to
no way no way
Track Name: Stupid things
A curious eye roaming, too timid to care
Too rehearsed in their way to see what we share
And time ticks by, ever so slowly
Don't watch the clock coz it don't really see

My hands are itchin, don't know what quite to do
Idea is slipping, I got something to prove
Feet a keep pacin', can't keep control
My mind is racing, racing out the back doot

T-H-I-N-G-S
Is what lands us in this fine mess
But I must confess that I too suffer from this excess
T-H-I-N-G-S
Is what lands us in this fine mess
But I must confess that I too suffer from this obsession

It won't break me down
A smile is a crown
It won't break me down
A smile is a crown

For too long, the obvious has been ignored
And now it seems we're run by
A bunch of corporate whores
We hold on to our ignorance like a grand old trophy
Now its time, now its time, to stop speaking so softly

T-H-I-N-G-S
Is what lands us in this fine mess
But I must confess that I too suffer from this excess
T-H-I-N-G-S
Is what lands us in this fine mess
But I must confess that I too suffer from this obsession

It won't break me down
A smile is a crown
It won't break me down
A smile is a crown
Track Name: Games people play
The meter is ticking from when I awake
I'm rushing to get there, I'm already late
They're counting, they're waiting
They're watching their backs,
They're adding the numbers of the hidden tax

Coz I can't believe how I'm starting to feel
Like I'm painted to thin and I've started to peel
Is it all in my head coz I'm stuck in routine
And I can't get out now my mind's a machine

Hey Hey Hey
You want to play a stupid game
Want to be different not the same
Hey hey hey
You wanna play a stupid game
So I'm gonna cut out and get away

They'll never let you fade into dark
They'll haunt you, and watch you and squash out your spark
Just waiting til the moment that you come undone
You haven't surrendered but they've still won


Coz I can't believe how I'm starting to feel
Like I'm painted to thin and I've started to peel
Is it all in my head coz I'm stuck in routine
And I can't get out now my mind's a machine

Hey Hey Hey
You want to play a stupid game
Want to be different not the same
Hey hey hey
You wanna play a stupid game
So I'm gonna cut out and get away

I feel my defiance it's rising inside
They want my compliance but I will not hide
It's not in my nature to work at this grind
To just be a vicitm and then follow blind

Coz I can't believe how I'm starting to feel
Like I'm painted to thin and I've started to peel
Is it all in my head coz I'm stuck in routine
And I can't get out now my mind's a machine

Hey Hey Hey
You want to play a stupid game
Want to be different not the same
Hey hey hey
You wanna play a stupid game
So I'm gonna cut out and get away
Track Name: Chase me in circles
Why did i reach for you again?
When i know you're not my friend
When it's all just pretend
but i'll love ya till the end

you have climbed into my veins
the darkness swims around, around, around

You are there when i walk away
There nothing to say
Silent devil sits on shoulder
Freezing my heart colder

You have reached inside my mind
it tries to fly, fly, fly,
You chase me in circles
dusk till dawn, sunset till morn

Can't think, can't breathe
Can't sleep, can't leave
Can't run, can't stop
I will never give up

Drifting off to sleep
I am in too deep
I have fallen in your trap
Queue bleeding hearts to weep

You command me
Please unhand me now, now, now


Can't think, can't breathe
Can't sleep, can't leave
Can't run, can't stop
I will never give up
Track Name: We're Free (album version)
You don't know me but that's fine
And I don't know you but I don't mind

You say come here take my hand
Let's go from this place
Coz we can

We're Free
Free
Yeah

You surprise me with your smile
I'll stay with you for awhile
There's no boundaries no end in sight
We can stay here til morning light

We're Free
Free
Yeah
