Track Name: Once Wild
All in the game, we just play at different levels
We're all in hell, we just battle different devils
Don't get caught up in their problems, cause their words can be deceiving
Figure it out just by praying to a god you don't...

Believe in the moment, good things may not last
So just live in the present, don't linger in the past

You were once wild, don't let them change you
You were once free, don't let them chain you
You were once wild, don't let them tame you
You were once free, don't let them claim you
You were once wild!

We don't stop, don't stop playing 'cause we grow old
We grow old, we stop playing, fall in line, do what we're told
Stand your ground, don't change your mind just like the weather changes seasons
Break the rules, like an artist paints a picture they...

Believe in the moment, good things may not last
So just live in the present, don't linger in the past

You were once wild, don't let them change you
You were once free, don't let them chain you
You were once wild, don't let them tame you
You were once free, don't let them claim you
You were once wild!

I see into your eyes, they don't tell me what I need
'Cause your body is a language that I can't seem to read
Completely different strangers, that's what we seem to be
But somehow, put together, you're the better part of me

You were once wild, don't let them change you
You were once free, don't let them chain you
You were once wild, don't let them tame you
You were once free, don't let them claim you
You were once wild!

Don't let them change you, or contain you
You're a diamond, they can't break you
Track Name: Up All Night
Can't wait to punch the clock, make a run for it, never stop
Tonight is just for us, 'til the buzzkills call the cops
Let's jump and touch the ceiling, let's lay down on the floor
We'll search for deeper meaning, let it shock us to the core

This is what we wanted
Never what we're promised

Waiting, waiting, until the early break of dawn
Staying, staying, up all night never going home

We can make it to the ocean, lend our bodies to the shore
If we make it 'til the morning, never have to ask for more
Let's raise a glass to nonsense, we'll have a laughing war
Let's start a revolution, we can stand up and roar

This is what we wanted
Never what we're promised

Waiting, waiting, until the early break of dawn
Staying, staying, up all night never going home

Don't go, don't fade away
If I could make it through the grueling hours of my day
Just make it to a point where all your troubles fade away
Never regret, don't ever look back
This is our moment it's our time, so make the most of it

Waiting, waiting, until the early break of dawn
Staying, staying, up all night never going home
Track Name: Bring The Rain
She said get away, stay away from me
You're just not the man that I want you to be
I guess we let these things run its course

You said all this time that you were fine
It just turned out to be one big lie
And it's over now

When it rains, it pours, it feels the same
This feeling I get makes me go insane

And I'll bring the rain
All this time you said you were satisfied
And it all turned out to be a lie
You broke me down and made me go insane
I'll bring the rain

Tried to work it out a hundred times
I've been dreading this day in my mind
That you're gonna go and say goodbye

I just can't believe that it's the end
You say I'm never ever gonna comprehend
That it's over now

When it rains, it pours, it feels the same
This feeling I get makes me go insane

And I'll bring the rain
All this time you said you were satisfied
And it all turned out to be a lie
You broke me down and made me go insane
I'll bring the rain

Took my love, yeah you took it for granted
Stole my heart almost if you had planned it
I know you're never gonna change
Now it's time that I take my own plans and
Put them first like you never wanted
This time I'm thinking about me

I'll bring the rain
All this time you said you were satisfied
And it all turned out to be a lie
You broke me down and made me go insane
I'll bring the rain
Track Name: Can't Let This Go
I made a mistake, of sneaking some drinks
At my work, I'm boozed
He's drunk again, I can never win
'Cause he's gotta lose

You don't have to say what you want to say
'Cause I already know
But you're gonna say, say it anyway
'Cause you can't let this go

So I phone a friend, 'til the bitter end
My ride-or-die bro
Time for amends have come to an end
Now I've gotta go

You don't have to say what you want to say
'Cause I already know
But you're gonna say, say it anyway
'Cause you can't let this go

I find reality much harder than most
I alter my world with a drink and a toast
So here's to you, and here's to me
You wasted it all, now I'm gonna leave

You don't have to say what you wanna say
'Cause I already know
But you're gonna say, say it anyway
'Cause you can't let this go

You don't have to say what you want to
Because I already know
But you will say, say it anyway
Cause you CAN'T LET THIS GO
Track Name: Great Escape
Don't try to get the best of me
It's not that bright now to be naive
A total lack of empathy
Your lies are constant, you never own it
You call this love
When you kiss me now, do you still taste blood?

Now, what do I gotta do to get you to tell the truth?

I will never listen to a word you say
I will take all of my secrets to my grave
My trust in me far outweighs the faith I have in humanity
Just keep it close, keep it safe
My grave will be my great escape

A sin to stand in mercy's way
Got no choice, a consequence of pain
You told me everything
A vicious cycle, it all ends the same
Enough's enough
When you carry on like you don't give a fuck

Now, what do I gotta do to get you to tell the truth?
You didn't think I'd know it's you

I will never listen to a word you say
I will take all of my secrets to my grave
My trust in me far outweighs the faith I have in humanity
Just keep it close, keep it safe
My grave will be my great escape

I will never listen to a word you say
I will take all of my secrets to my grave
I will never listen to a word you say
I will take all of my secrets to my grave
I will take my secrets to my grave
