Track Name: Summer Heat (Ft. Maya Derrick)
The summer heat it burns my skin
But I don't mind cause I got
Sixty days and counting
Of nothing in my head
And remember when you said this is not the end
We'd meet after the summer
And we did
But everything had changed

What happened?
Take me back
What happened?
Take me

The days are long and our lives so dull
We better live it up best we can
But I'm not, I'm sitting all alone in my room
Wondering about how I'm gonna meet you again
When we go back it'll be another world all together
I'm not ready for that my dear
My nerves are crippling
And these thoughts are suffocating me


What happened?
Take me back
What happened?
Take me

When the summer ends
Will you be the same people I knew before
When the summer ends
Will you still be there
When the summer ends
Will you be the same people that I knew before
When the summer ends
Will I still feel this way

This is the last time
But it's going too fast
The pictures are burnt
No memories, lost memories
Now my world's collapsing
I'm relapsing
Thinking of you
Please stay just a little bit
Just a little bit a little bit a little bit


When the summer ends
Will you be the same people I knew before
When the summer ends
Will you still be there
When the summer ends
Will you be the same people that I knew before
When the summer ends
Will I still feel this way


What happened?
Take me back
What happened?
Take me
Track Name: The Narcissist
I feel I'm falling down a bad road
I feel my heart beat faster than I've ever known
I feel I'm staring far too long
I feel I'm in love

I feel so close yet so far away
And I won't be surprised by any move you make
Cause I know all of your secrets
And you know mine

I feel you're my reflection
You're my very soul
I hope you feel the same
I know you feel the same

Cause if I ever had to leave you
I'd have to first separate myself

I feel I'm falling down a bad road
I feel my heart beat faster than I've ever known
I feel I'm staring far too long
I feel I'm in love

Those vampires don't have what we have
So they'll just have to love alone
But I've got you wherever I go
You're my skin and bones

I feel I'm falling down a bad road
I feel my heart beat faster than I've ever known
I feel I'm staring far too long
I feel I'm in love

I feel I'm falling down a bad road
I feel my heart beat faster than I've ever known
I feel I'm staring far too long
I feel I'm in love
Track Name: What I Want
There's a shadow on my face
There's a thought I can't replace
There's a gun in my hand without a plan
Oh have you not prayed to your god
Are you trembling like a dog
I can hear your sorry footsteps running away into the cold dark night

I'm coming for you

Give me what I want
Give me what I need
I've got time to waste, my friend
So lay your head down and bleed

Did you think this day wouldn't come
You can't live your life in the sun
The winter's coming and it's gonna be cold
Are you regretting choices you've made
Are you begging that you'll be saved
I'm bringing hell unto you

Give me what I want
Give me what I need
I've got time to waste, my friend
So lay your head down and bleed

Oh but it's over now
your time has come
It's too little too late
come and face what the f*** you have done

Give me what I want
Give me what I need
I've got time to waste, my friend
So lay your head down and bleed
Track Name: Lost Dreams
Little girl from a little home
Grew up on karaoke microphones
And her mummy and daddy say she'll be a star
But in life those words won’t get you far
And she'll keep singing all the songs that she likes
Stepping up to all those talent show mics
Oh yeah she’ll do anything to make her dreams come true

Sweet sixteen looking pretty mean
Certain she'll be a singing dancing queen
Oh she don't need school she's got that natural shine
She learns all she needs smoking by the train line
And all the boys say she's drop dead looking
But in her mind she's got her whole future cooking
Oh yeah she'll do anything to make her dreams come true

What you see’s what you get
Lost dreams cheap cigarettes
What you see’s what you get
Oh which of you strangers is next

Now she's 21 she should be having fun
Instead she's laiden with a stranger’s son
Now in a cut throat city money's hard to make
But a stranger at the bar says he can give her her big break
And so he says to step out on the streets at night
And like Roxanne, put on her red light
She's doing anything to make her dreams come true

What you see’s what you get
Lost dreams cheap cigarettes
What you see’s what you get
Oh which of you strangers is next

Who's that girl lying over there
The one face down with the silky hair
You can tell by her scars she's been through a lot
As the baby beside her’s screaming mummy wake up
She's beautiful she could have been a star
But it seems in life she didn’t get very far
I bet she did anything to make her dreams come true

What you see’s what you get
Lost dreams cheap cigarettes
What you see’s what you get
Oh which of you strangers is next
Track Name: Get Out Of My Face
The songs on the radio all sing about love
But none of them are sang by you
Because demons don't create songs
No they create tragedies
And dark skies are forming overhead
Reminding me of voices that are wishing me dead
I could explode any second in a lightning storm

I tried to get you off my mind I tried
I keep on falling falling back to you
And if I told you I regret it you'd know I lied
I keep on falling back to you

Get out of my face baby
I feel too hot when I'm with you
Get out of my face baby
I feel too hot when I'm with you

She's a big dark killer
She's my personal thriller
Always keeping me guessing and guessing again
How can you do this to me my dear
Oh don't you understand

I tried to get you off my mind I tried
I keep on falling falling back to you
And if I told you I regret it you'd know I lied
I keep on falling back to you

Get out of my face baby
I feel too hot when I'm with you
Get out of my face baby
I feel too hot when I'm with you

But I remember when you were so young and innocent
Oh if we could turn back time
Oh please

Get out of my face baby
I feel too hot when I'm with you
Get out of my face baby
I feel too hot when I'm with you
Track Name: No Resurrection
What you've done today cannot be told
You can't destroy what's worth more than gold
And now there's recovery to come
To erase the mistakes you have done
You never were the one to ignite
And we all fought that you'd won the fight
But the demons that we thought were long dead
Were only hiding within your beautiful head

So take your pills gulp them all down
They'll make you cry but give you a crown
And if you feel broken in fear
Just know it can only get better from here

Cause you say you've lost your direction
And you say it's the only way
And you say there'll be no resurrection
Because love don't exist here no more

Cause you say you've lost your direction
And you say it's the only way
And you say there'll be no resurrection
Because love don't exist here no more

What you've done today cannot be told
You can't destroy what's worth more than gold
The demons that we thought were long dead
Were only hiding within your beautiful head
Track Name: Scaled Hands
There are some things I'd like to know
I'm confused how I got this far
And what am I doing here for
Cause there's a million other boys around here
Bigger, better, stronger than me
So why are you wasting your time on this one

But she's still looking at me
And I can't tell what she sees

Cause I've got scaled hands
And you've got the softest skin
And I've got a sour mouth
But yours is sweet as sin
And I have a a giant's step
But you're a ballet dancer
And I have a crooked smile but yours is always the answer
So if you'll be my beauty
I'll be your beast

Take me to the place where all the beautiful people go
I'd really like to know
Just what it feels like
And where I can get me some
You don't seem to be a pity giver
So what bad news have you got for me
I don't think I can take anymore

But she's still looking at me
And I can't tell what she sees

Cause I've got scaled hands
And you've got the softest skin
And I've got a sour mouth
But yours is sweet as sin
And I have a a giant's step
But you're a ballet dancer
And I have a crooked smile but yours is always the answer
So if you'll be my beauty
If you'll be my beauty
I'll be your beast

I can be your beast

Cause I've got dark thoughts
Writhing through my mind
Whilst you have the sweetest innocence
Only god could find
And sometimes I want to bury the world
And all who dwell upon it
But you'd be the one to build it up
And start again
So if you'll be my beauty
If you'll be my beauty
I can be your beast
I'll be your beast
Track Name: Girls on the Other Side of Town
Face to face on a living room floor
Her eyes were looking for more
I don't know what she sees
Just another case for me to solve
Have I drunk too much tonight
Or are these the most beautiful girls I've ever seen in my life

And maybe drink won't give me the answer
But I already know enough now
And maybe its recipe for disaster
But they're from a different world I'd like to know

Oh those girls on the other side of town
Always a mystery
I'm falling deeply
Those girls on the other side of town
Well they'll just keep spinning my head
Forever round and round
Oh, last night I had a dream
That she was mine
Oh wouldn't that be fine

She's a puzzle piece
She's my quick release
She's a painting stuck inside my mind
I don't know what to do anymore
I'll just follow her till I get
Head over heels with her disease
And she's the on with the cure
Oh, why am I doing this
I don't know but I can't resist

And maybe I'm living in imagination
Or maybe these girls aren't quite who I think
Or maybe I'm falling towards the concrete
But at least I'm falling happily

Oh those girls on the other side of town
Always a mystery
I'm falling deeply
Those girls on the other side of town
Well they'll just keep spinning my head
Forever round and round
Oh, last night I had a dream
That she was mine
Oh wouldn't that be fine

Oh those girls on the other side of town
Always a mystery
I'm falling deeply
Track Name: Memory
Oh She
She's the one stuck in your dreams
Rushing through you like a laser beam
And no matter how dark they seem
You know they'll turn out alright
Cause now it's 2 am outside
And you've got no place to hide
And what an almighty surprise
You won't be sleeping tonight

Did you think that you'd save her life
And in return that she'd save yours
Did you think that you'd found the cure
Oh wouldn't that be nice
Cause now you're all alone
She's in a world you'll never know
You better take it on the nose
There was no way you could win

Cause you've been waiting too long
And the dreams you had are far gone
They're just a memory now
It's just a memory now
Cause now you're turning sixteen
And she's nothing but a beauty queen
They're just a memory now
It's just a memory now

Her face
The one thing they'll never take
Like a bullet in your brain
You'll never get her out of your mind
Maybe it could be different
Maybe you could have a different life
But you've wasted all your time
It's over now

Cause you've been waiting too long
And the dreams you had are far gone
It's just a memory now
It's just a memory now
