Track Name: Noughts and Crosses
[Verse 1]
I've had enough of touching the glass from the outside
I've felt enough to part the seas of emotion
No this is not an invite to see what's happening inside my mind
It's just a song 'cause nothing seems to change

[Pre - Chorus]
And just take a step back
And you'll feel it

[Chorus]
Oh what a waste of time all wasted on you
You saw right through me, wasn't meant to
'Cause noughts and crosses have all been forgotten
'Cause I can't keep up with you

[Verse 2]
I've seen enough to know that I'm not foolish
'Cause it's too much to watch the world go by now
If only you'd notice what it's like to be watching from the other side
But this is just a song and all you care to do is sing along

[Pre - Chorus]
And just take a step back
And you'll feel it

[Chorus]
Oh what a waste of time all wasted on you
You saw right through me, wasn't meant to
'Cause noughts and crosses have all been forgotten
'Cause I can't keep up with you

Oh what a waste of time all wasted on you
You saw right through me, wasn't meant to
'Cause noughts and crosses have all been forgotten
'Cause I can't keep up with you

[Instrumental Break]

[Pre - Chorus]
And just take a step back
And you'll feel it
Just take a step back
And you'll feel it

[Chorus]
Oh what a waste of time all wasted on you
You saw right through me, wasn't meant to
'Cause noughts and crosses have all been forgotten
'Cause I can't keep up with you

Oh what a waste of time shouldn't have wasted on you
Next time you'll see what you were meant to
'Cause noughts and crosses won't be forgotten
'Cause they'll do more than you do
'Cause they'll do more than you do
'Cause they'll do more than you do
Track Name: Fading Away
[Verse 1]
We were walking down the side by the city lights
And there was nothing you could do to change my mind
Oh I know I've been sinking for a while now
And there's nothing to catch my fall

[Chorus]
No safety net, no parachute
I'm heading straight for the ground
No lifeline to save us all
From the souls that crawl
The dark side, the light side's fading away
And I know, that you can't quite stay

Stay

[Verse 2]
We were gonna recover all the facts that were well hidden
In the corner of each room I saw them running through the drain
And I can see that you're starting to disappear
'Cause you know there's no place to call home

[Chorus]
No safety net, no parachute
I'm heading straight for the ground
No lifeline to save us all
From the souls that crawl
The dark side, the light side's fading away
And I know, that you can't quite stay

Stay

[Bridge]
Oh I know it's time to let you go on your own now
The real world is bigger than you first quite thought
Can't be keeping you no more

[Chorus]
'Cause there's no safety net, no parachute
I'm heading straight for the ground
No lifeline to save us all
From the souls that crawl
The dark side, the light side's fading away
And I know, that you can't quite

[Outro]
No safety net, no parachute
I'm heading straight for the ground
No lifeline to save us all
From the souls that crawl
The dark side, the light side's fading away
And I know, that you can't quite stay
Track Name: The Fall
[Verse 1]
Her eyes were as blue as the sky
But only when she cried
She just wasn't enough to keep him around

It's just so tough
When there's nowhere to hide
And there's nowhere to run
Oh can't you see it was too much
To keep up inside
All locked up

[Chorus]
But she said oh my dear I can't decide
Where I must stay, how I survive
It chew me up, it chews me up
Do I leave it all behind?
Do I hold it by my side?
I don't know if I can take the fall
So hold me up until I'm whole, whole, whole

[Verse 2]
And she smiles but she's locked tears up inside
Her face is made of steel but full of lies
She just wants to be tough to keep him around

It's just bad luck
That she can't see inside
That she can't feel the love
Surrounding her it was too much
To realise
All at once

[Chorus]
But she said oh my dear I can't decide (can't decide)
Where I must stay, how I survive (how I survive)
It chew me up, it chews me up
Do I leave it all behind? (all behind)
Do I hold it by my side? (by my side)
I don't know if I can take the fall
So hold me up until I'm whole, whole, whole

(Until I'm) whole, whole, whole

[Instrumental]

Oh it chews me up, it chews me up

[Chorus]
But she said oh my dear I can't decide
Where I must stay, how I survive
It chew me up, it chews me up
Do I leave it all behind?
Do I hold it by my side?
I don't know if I can take the fall
So hold me up until I'm

[Last Chorus]
Oh my dear I can't decide (can't decide)
Where I must stay, how I survive (how I survive)
It chew me up, it chews me up
Do I leave it all behind? (all behind)
Do I hold it by my side? (by my side)
I don't know if I can take the fall
So hold me up until I'm whole, whole, whole
Whole, whole, whole
Track Name: I Plead
[Verse 1]
Lately I've been going under
The water wraps around my mind
And I can't float above for much longer

No, I can't breathe
The air escapes my lungs and I can't see
A route out of the sea

[Pre-Chorus]
And oh, it takes me
Surrounding my body
Competing with the struggles of my, brain
And they will never see the difference in between

[Chorus]
The way we talk and the way we walk
I've never had it come so naturally
The plans I'd made had all gone up in flames
Oh what I'd do to see what we could have been
Cause all I need is some time, I Plead

[Verse 2]
I don't know what I should be missing
The rain pours in and clouds my mind
And I can't cut right through to find the ending

No, and I can't please
The people all around the silver screen
Believing that I can happily breathe

[Pre-Chorus]
And oh, it takes me
Surrounding my body
Competing with the struggles of my, brain
And they will never see the difference in between

[Chorus]
The way we talk and the way we walk
I've never had it come so naturally
The plans I'd made had all gone up in flames
Oh what I'd do to see what we could have been

The way we dance and the way we stand
You'd never think that life could be so bad
The games we play just all feel the same
And now I see the truth for what it has been
Cause all I need is some time
Yeah all I need is some time

I Plead, I Plead

(Instrumental Break)

[Chorus]
The way we talk and the way we walk
I've never had it come so naturally
The plans I'd made had all gone up in flames
Oh what I'd do to see what we could have been

The way we dance and the way we stand
You'd never think that life could be so bad
The games we play just all feel the same
And now I see the truth for what it has been

[Build Up]
Cause all I need is some time
Yeah all I need is some time
Cause all I need is some time
Yeah all I need is sometime, I plead
I Plead
