Track Name: Don't Blame Us When You're Famous
Let’s ignore the warning signs
Take cover from selfish eyes
This is what it feels like
To be alone
To watch yourself begin to grow
And hold on to a glimpse of hope
In desperate need to stay afloat
And keeping everything on the road
This is all that you wanted in the end

So don’t blame us when you’re famous
You know exactly what you want
So keep your eyes on the prize and don’t back down for anyone
So don’t blame us when you’re famous
You know exactly what you want
Now all eyes are on you
No-one cares where you’re coming from

When our world's collide
I’ll be the first to hear thunder
And you’ll be the first to feel the rain
You gotta get out get out of your head
Before the moment escapes and the line goes dead
Go back to the point in history where nothing else matter
Well is this all that you wanted from start to end
I don’t think you have what it takes

These contrasting styles only have themselves to blame
And if it wasn’t for the songs that we sing you’ll be alone once again
Track Name: The Night Is Darkest Just Before The Dawn
This is the night that you'll remember
For all the wrong reasons
You did this to yourself
And when I'm breathing down your neck
You're so paranoid but I wont regret it
Well I'm just human after all

And in your place i'll keep on trying
I'll keep on fighting
But in the end I'll give it all up for you

I remember the night you left and threw us to the wolves
I remember the day that we learned to fend for ourselves
I remember the fire in your heart
I remember you lied from the start

Friends and promises
Fell by the wayside
We were meant for better things
While we were left
Mending our wings
We wish you the best
We know how you tried
Once you saw friends now you see
Rungs on the ladder to your dreams

You thought that I would wait for you
In the gutter where you left me
With our feet close to the edge
You're reaching for the ceiling
I'm miles overhead
Track Name: For All It Was Worth
I need time
I need freedom to decide
I need everything in my life to breathe alone
I’ve lost my judgment on things
I’ve lost the will to succeed but I know deep inside
That this fight won’t last the third round

You have stolen all the darkest secrets from me
Left me defending all the wounds that you have made
And as I’m pointing the finger I’m pointing the blame
As I disguise myself with shadow of mistakes

And as it goes from one extreme to the other
Like a beautiful reminder
The world is standing still for us
With no one watching

I need time
I need freedom to decide
I need everything in my life to breathe alone
I lost my judgment on things
I lost the will to succeed but I know deep inside
That this fight won’t last the third round

You’ve been on my case
Playing guessing games
The expressions on my face
Will remain the same

Why does it feel like we’re losing so much time
Watching the seconds go by

For all it was worth
Track Name: The Critics
You’ve always had a vision of this life, in your mind
But in the back of your head you know you’re walking blind
Towards another empty bottle, and you’re ignoring what’s in front of your…
Eyes are hazy, but in the corner of your mouth there’s a smile
And if the world come crashing down on your, well
At least you know you’ve tried

They’ll see the light, you’ve just got to make them open their eyes

I will never give this up, I’ll burn this city down
And in the ashes it will be my time, woah
All these vultures circling will be blown out of the sky
Begging for more when I leave them behind

It’s been a long time coming and I’m hearing everything you said
But that doesn’t mean I’m listening, I’m bending over backwards
Just to make you realize
You’re heading for a hole in the ground
And you’ll drink way down
While I’m trying to find another way to throw you out of line

For you first time lucky has never been appropriate
It’s no coincidence that you’ve gone no where yet

I will, I’m gonna silence you tonight
