Track Name: We Are One
We Are One

Follow me as I follow you
Lead us to the blinding sun
Together, Forever, We'll never drift apart
We belong to each other
Together, Forever
That's how we will stay as one

Torture me as I torture you
Draw me to the hungry gun
Together, Forever, We'll never get away
We won't find another
Together, Forever
But for how long?

Somebody told me that you're not happy, you're not in love with me
We said we'd stay together for eternity, just you and me
A little birdie said you're not happy, you're not in love with me
When we swore we'd be together, together, forever

We Are One
Somebody told me that you're not happy, you're not in love with me
We said we'd stay together for eternity, just you and me
A little birdie said you're not happy, you're not in love with me
When we swore we'd be together, together, together
Together
Together
Together
Together
Together
Forever
You and me
Track Name: Down
Down

I'm moving to America
I don't know what to expect
I see on the t.v
Foul language and sex

Here she comes again
Kick her while she's down
She just wants a friend
So show her around...

Don't want to go again, don't need to go again
Don't want to go again, don't need to go again
Thought everyone loved me
But they all called me a whore
It wasn't my fault I was raped
And now my heart's filled with hate

I want to take some rope, and hang with myself
They're going to tell their jokes, but I don't want to hear
I don't need to mope, I care about my health
They want me to choke, but I won't disappear.

I'm going to take some rope, and hang with myself
They're still telling jokes, and I don't want to hear
I don't mean to mope, I want to keep my health
I just want to choke, and maybe disappear...
I just took this rope, I'm hanging with myself
They kept telling jokes, but I said I don't want to hear
I won't ever mope, I don't care about my health
Now I get to choke, so let me disappear.

Don't want to go again, don't need to go again
Don't want to go again, don't need to go again

-Lyrics by Mykel Nitro, for Phoebe Prince

Track Name: December Rose
December Rose

So you're back again
I see you're back again
Oh December Rose
So rare and so delicate

Show me what it's like to feel how you feel
Teach me how to live so I can feel real

Hold out your hand
And loan me the strength
To face my darkest fears
Give me your strength

Show me what it's like to feel how you feel
Teach me how to live so I can feel real

You say, you say, you say
You say, you say, you say
You say, you say, you say
You say, you say, you say

You say...
You say...
I'll never be yours and you will never be mine
You say you're here to stay but all you do is run away
Oh December Rose, you are one of a kind
You say you're here to stay but all you do is run away...
From the truth

Show me what it's like to feel how you feel
Teach me how to live so I can feel real
Show me what it's like to feel how you feel
Teach me how to live so I can feel real

You say, you say, you say
You say, you say, you say
You say, you say, you say
You say, you say, you say
Track Name: I'll Hold On
I'll Hold On

Born together, born as friends
Never dies, it never ends
Here today and gone tomorrow
Always glad, never sorrow

Though the light begins to fade
I'm still here
And I'm not going anywhere
Without you
Though we've been apart
We've always been near
I will never let you go
I'll keep you alive

Here I stand, here I fall
Never short, but never tall
Who's to say, who's to blame
Always proud and never ashamed

In the end I will be
Right by your side
We will never lose
Only prevail
I'll be right there
To face tomorrow's tide
I'll be right there
I'll hold on...

And I won't see you die
I won't see you die
I won't see you die
I won't see you die
I'll hold on...

Born together, born as friends
Never dies, it never ends
(Here I stand, here I fall
Never short, but never tall)
Here today and gone tomorrow
Always glad, never sorrow
(Who's to say, who's to blame
Always proud and never ashamed)

I'll never leave your side
I will never let you go
I'll stick around
I won't let you die
I won't back down
I'll keep you alive
I'll stand my ground
I'll be there...
I'll hold on...

And I won't see you die
I won't see you die
I won't see you die
I won't see you die
I won't see you die
(I'll hold on)
I won't see you die
(I'll hold on)
I won't see you die
(I'll hold on)
I won't see you die
(I'll hold on)
I'll hold on...
Track Name: Season
Season

It's all the same
Will it ever change?
Give us something good
Like a good boy should

Give me a reason
A reason to hold on to
I need my season
A season that will hold true
I crave desire
I feel the fire
Drenched with sin
As I burn within

It's still alive
Will it ever die?
No place safe to run
From the blinding sun

Give me a reason
A reason to hold on to
I need my season
A season that will hold true
I crave desire
I feel the fire
Drenched with sin
As I burn within

"There's a light that shines inside us all. This light warms us with hopes of who we dream to be, yet society forces us to shackle this light to darkness. Well I refuse to let this light be bound and gagged any longer! It's time for us all to unite as one... It's time for us all to release that inner light... It's time to let all of our dreams and desires burn free!"

Give me a reason
A reason to hold on to
I need my season
A season that will hold true
I crave desire
I feel the fire
Drenched with sin
As I burn within

Give me a reason
A reason to hold on to
I need my season
A season that will hold true
I crave desire
I feel the fire
Drenched with sin
As I burn within
Track Name: Catalyst
Catalyst

Sometimes I ask myself
How did I get here
So far from what I love
So far from who I once was

But maybe change is what I need, or one last flight
September's starting early, I think that I just might

Blast off to the stars
Play songs for the Earth
My change will be spent
On the Sun's light
For better or for worse
Each day's a new verse
There's a time and a place, I'm sure
There's a will to endure

I never woke up this way
Please respond if I am right
But I must be the same man
Who went to this bed last night

But maybe change is what I need, or one last flight
September's starting early, I think that I just might

Blast off to the stars
Play songs for the Earth
My change will be spent
On the Sun's light
For better or for worse
Each day's a new verse
There's a time and a place, I'm sure
There's a will to endure

Hammers to nails
Pen to paper
It never fails
It never tapers

Blast off to the stars
Play songs for the Earth
My change will be spent
On the Sun's light
For better or for worse
Each day's a new verse
There's a time and a place, I'm sure
There's a will to endure

Hammers to nails
Pen to paper
It never fails
It never tapers
Track Name: Escape From Instinct
Escape From Instinct

They say I've got to learn to check my brain
Got to keep straight, got to stay in shape
They want to put me down 'cuz I'm insane
Got to find hope, got to find a way to...

Escape from
(We must now)
Instinct City
(Escape from)
The only thing we can truly escape from is ourselves
So take my hand and come with me, we'll escape this living hell

I don't know how, but I've got to get away
Got to get out, out of this place
Got to escape to fight another day
Got to live to fight another Mother-fucking day

Escape from
(We must now)
Instinct City
(Escape from)
The only thing we can truly escape from is ourselves
So take my hand and come with me, we'll escape this living hell

Find a way, get away, and stay away
Escape from instinct City

Escape from
(We must now)
Instinct City
(Escape from)
The only thing we can truly escape from is ourselves
So take my hand and come with me, we'll escape this living hell
Track Name: Satellite Radio
Satellite Radio

"Foolish human you dare to follow me
Even after I killed your family
I take from those too blind to see
And I'll kill all those with a mind and a mouth to speak"

I don't know if you can see
This world-wide travesty
It rapes the poor and it kills the weak
(Wake up, stand up, fight back, before it kills you)
There's a tare in the Earth and we're all sinking
Down and all the while we're thinking
"Stay afloat"
Why's it so hard to live?
Live and let live
Live and let live
Live and let live

"A challenge I am willing to meet
I won't be taken down so easily
By your work-worn hands and soul burned feet"
Your speech has gone on for far too long!
My cry is loud and my fight is strong!
So back down now before I prove you wrong!

I don't know if you can see
This world-wide travesty
It rapes the poor and it kills the weak
(Wake up, stand up, fight back, before it kills you)
There's a tare in the Earth and we're all sinking
Down and all the while we're thinking
"Stay afloat"
Why's it so hard to live?
Live and let live
Live and let live
Live and let live
Live and let!

I don't know if you can see
(Wake up, stand up, fight back, before it kills you)
This world-wide travesty
(Wake up, stand up, fight back, before it kills you)
It rapes the poor and it kills the weak
(Wake up, stand up, fight back, before it kills you)
There's a tare in the Earth and we're all sinking
Down and all the while we're thinking
"Stay afloat"
Why's it so hard to...
"Stay afloat"
Why can't we just...
"Stay afloat"
How's it so hard to live?
Live and let live
Live and let live
Live and let live
Live and let live
Live and let live
Live and let live
Live and let live
Live and let live!!
Live and let live!!
Live and let live!!
Live and let live!!
Okay!!
Track Name: Shine
Shine

When the sun shines, it shines on me
But when you look up, they're all you'll see
When I die, music will cease
"Best ever born", my grave will read

One day you'll see
I'll make you believe
One day you'll see
This world belongs to me

When I was born, the Gods, they screamed
None could believe what they had seen
This kid was born with musical genes
One day he will tare this music scene

One day you'll see
I'll make you believe
One day you'll see
This world belongs to me

(Not You)
This world is mine to take
(Not You)
I'll make a believer out of you
(Not You)
This world is mine to take
(Not You)
There's not a thing you can do

One day you'll see
I'll make you believe
One day you'll see
This world belongs to me

(Not You)
This world is mine to take
(Not You)
I'll make a believer out of you
(Not You)
This world is mine to take
(Not You)
There's not a thing you can do
(Not You)
This world is mine to take
(Not You)
I'll make a believer out of you
(Not You)
This world is mine to take
(Not You)
There's not a thing you can do
Track Name: Golden Eye
Golden Eye

I've been waiting all my life for this moment to arrive, and I'm going to grab the torch before the moment passes me by. I see my chance and the sign can't get any bigger. So I'm going to seize the moment and I'm going to pull that trigger...

Get it from him!!
Get it from him!!
Get it from him!!
Get it from him!!

Passing through all the obstacles, I can see the treasure's mine. Pure gold, fully loaded, a sight for swore eyes. Alarms are sounding off so faster and faster I run. Bullets are flying by me but wait... Now I have the Golden Gun...

Get it from him!!
Get it from him!!
Get it from him!!
Get it from him!!
Get it from him!!
Everybody run!!
Get it from him!!
He's got the Golden Gun!!

Get it from him!!
Get it from him!!
Get it from him!!
Get it from him!!
Get it from him!!
Everybody run!!
Get it from him!!
He's got the Golden Gun!!
Track Name: Road To Nowhere
Road To Nowhere

Been heading down this road for all my years
A road I've seen before, but never been near
All alone I stare into the eyes of fear
Which path to follow next, blood, sweat, or tears?

I am lost and all alone
Running down this road to nowhere
I fight this battle all on my own
Stranded on this road to nowhere

I keep on running, so maybe I can see
What lies on this path before me
Though all this mist just blinds me
I keep on running in search of destiny

I am lost and all alone
Running down this road to nowhere
I fight this battle all on my own
Stranded on this road to nowhere
To nowhere...

I am lost and all alone
Running down this road to nowhere
I fight this battle all on my own
Stranded on this road to nowhere
To nowhere...

I am lost and all alone!
Heading down this empty road!
Searching for my destiny!
I can't get off...
So I'm lost and I'm running!
Stuck and I'm stranded!
Lost and I'm running!
Stuck and I'm stranded!
LOST! STUCK!
ON A ROAD TO NOWHERE!!
