Track Name: The Firing Line
The word is on the street
That I'm not who I seem to be
And anywhere I go
People stare at me
Even though I just lie low

But I hid my feelings in a secret place
So no one ever sees a tear running down my face
It's like the world is trying to say to me:
"Just get out"

Maybe someday
I'll find my way
But I know that I need more time
And I know that I need to keep myself out of the firing line...
...out of the firing line

The word is on the street
That I'm not who I seem to be
They say you get just what you deserve
You get what you deserve
You always get what you deserve

Maybe someday
I'll find my way
But I know that I need more time
And I know that I need to keep myself out of the firing line...
...out of the firing line
Track Name: Really High
Somebody told me
To give up what I don't need
I never dared
But I never cared
'Cause life is short
And time is running out

We're just pawns in a chess game
But we don't know how to play
So Iet's wait 'till the day
That we cry and wonder why
Why why...

Stand up and break free
Be who you wanna be
Life is short
So live it up
And all around the world
Spread the word

We're just pawns in a chess game
But we don't know how to play
So Iet's wait 'till the day
That we cry and wonder why
Why why...

Let's get high
Really high...
At least we are in good company
And we ain't gonna hide
Let's get high
Really high
Really high...

Somebody told me
To never get down on my knees
Life is short
So I live it up
'Cause it's just a sigh
A tiny breeze

I know what I know
'Cause I know who I really am
Or at least I think I know...
Well...let's get high

I know what I know
'Cause I know who I really am
Who cares...
Let's get high
Track Name: A Means to an End
I'm fading away like a declining trend
As I realize life's just a means to an end
But who's gonna bid farewell to me
If they all seem to hold on for a new hope?

A stitch in time saves nine
I'm yours to sew but you're mine
Where is the warmth
We used to share?

There's nothing left to loose
'Cause someone's sold the love that we needed
Our precious love...
There's nothing left to loose
'Cause someone's sold all that love that we needed...needed...

Thing's are gonna change
And they'll get even worse
I can't help but think
We've all been cursed

A stitch in time saves nine
I'm yours to sew but you're mine
Where is the warmth
We used to share?

There's nothing left to loose
'Cause someone's sold the love that we needed
Our precious love...
There's nothing left to loose
'Cause someone's sold all that love that we needed...needed...
Track Name: Loopa Doopa
So everybody says
I need some sleep
I’m off the rails
My skin is getting pale
I've lost all my friends
But they know I don't care

Well here I stand in no man's land
Trying to hold the whip in my hand
Blue skies are gone
There's no more sunlight at the crack of dawn
And it's getting too hard to find peace of mind
'Cause I got the feeling I'm wasting my time
I may be wrong but I think all hope is gone

So don't you believe there's a sign in the sky?
Don't you believe there's a sign that shines for me?

So everybody says
I need some sleep
But then again
I embrace the pain
I've lost all my friends
And I know they don't care

Well here I stand in no man's land
Trying to hold the whip in my hand
Blue skies are gone
There's no more sunlight at the crack of dawn
And it's getting too hard to find peace of mind
'Cause I got the feeling I'm wasting my time
I may be wrong but I think all hope is gone

So don't you believe there's a sign in the sky?
Don't you believe there's a sign that shines for me?
Track Name: Rat Race
Big white smile and a plastic face
He loves his life, he won't leave the rat race
Selling cars at a blistering pace
He'll proudly say 'till the end of his days
That he's born this way

The squeaky wheel gets the grease
He gets happy when he sees
The brightest men on earth bowed at his feet just by his charming...

...Style
'Cause they all say he's versatile
That all he does is worthwhile
But does he know he's gonna die inside his own bubble?
He'll die inside his own bubble

Rat race

He's so kind to his kith and kin
He tricks them all when he speaks like a king
Dimple in chin, devil within
He'll proudly say that just lives to win
He lives to win

The squeaky wheel gets the grease
He gets happy when he sees
The brightest men on earth bowed at his feet just by his charming...

...Style
'Cause they all say he's versatile
That all he does is worthwhile
But does he know he's gonna die inside his own bubble?
He'll die inside his own bubble

Rat race

Does he know what easy comes easy goes?
The squeaky wheel gets the grease
He lives to win
