Track Name: It's Unimportant
You tell the story, just a little differently/Than the way it really happened, the way it is in reality/You like to point the blame, you like to drop my name/You say it's all my fault, and I don't care 'cause I know it's not./It's unimportant, all the things you say, you throw them in my face/How's it feel to know that you are meaningless?/It must sting./I've always been soo sure of myself, I've never been one to, obsess, and obsess, and obsess/But now lately it seems like, I'm the bad guy, when I'm tryin' to be right./I'm not a storyteller, but I know that this is the end/I rue the day I ever met you, the day I called you "friend"./It's unimportant, all the things you say, you throw them in my face/How's it feel to know that you are meaningless? It must sting./I've always been soo sure of myself, I've never been one to, obsess, and obsess, and obsess/But now lately it seems like, I'm the bad guy, when I'm tryin' to be right./It's unimportant, all the things you say, you throw them in my face/How's it feel to know that you are meaningless? It must sting./How's about we take a step into the past, and I'll look back and laugh, at the person that you've become and everything that you've done wrong.
Track Name: Silverlake
Looks like my luck's, finally run out./But we've come to far, to just quit now./You say that I'm a "Hero" but I've never even saved a life/So how can that be true?/Tell me, how can that be right?/You have your aspirations to overthrow my title, but I'll hand it to you my friend, I'll hand it without a fight./Because it's not as exciting as it seems, for you it might be a dream/But it's a living nightmare to me and I can't wait to wake up/Exciting as it seems, it might be a change for you/It's like a ghost story to a kid, as foolish as it is/But I, think I believe again/Even heroes make mistakes/But my stubbornness will pull us all through this/I may be tired of a hero's life, but everyone has their purpose and this one's mine./It's been a long night, it's been a difficult fight, but I'd be lying if I said it wasn't a good time./But it's still not as exciting as it seems, for you it might be a dream/But it's a living nightmare to me and I can't wait to wake up/Exciting as it seems, it might be a change for you/It's like a ghost story to a kid, as foolish as it is/But I, think I...
Track Name: Victory in Defeat
Every time I try something new I fall on my face/Even if I've been here forever I still feel out of place/Everybody tells me, "You can do it if you try."/Yeah right./I'm sick of tryin', I'm sick of lyin' to myself and besides, I know I'll never win./I give up./I forfeit./There's no shame in knowin' when to quit./So I give in./I'd rather live to fight another day than die a forgotten man/You might think that makes me a coward, but i have a master plan/I wonder if someday they'll ever see the way I see?/That there's victory in defeat./I'm sick of tryin', I'm sick of lyin' to myself and besides, I know I'll never win./I give up./I forfeit./There's no shame in knowin' when to quit./So I give in.
Track Name: One Big Lie
I want everything, at the cost of losing nothing./I want it all./My benevolence must have built up a wish,/and I want to cash it in./And everything has just been one big lie…/I’m learning more as the days go by, that the whole time, I was right./But that’s no surprise./I had never wished it’d come to this./But I have to take control./It’s not time to be smug./It’s not time to be arrogant./It’s just time for me to get what I’ve earned./And everything has just been one big lie…/You could never hit a nerve; you could never haunt my mind./You could never keep me up at night./And everything has just been one big lie!
