Track Name: Break Free
Who are you helping?
Who will you save?
You’re betraying yourself.
Individuality is a virtue
Don’t give it away.
Don’t put a price on what is yours.
Don’t put a price on what is yours.
Individuality is a virtue don’t give it away.
Show the world all your talents.
Break free!
Break free (x4)
Take this moment for yourself.
Every moment is a gift.
Life can end faster than it started;
Don’t waste it selling out.
Don’t sink to
Their level.
You are better than that.
Fill your heart; with,
With Joy
Time spent hating is wasted.
It is so much easier
To Respect the humble than those who
Live in bitterness.
Take this moment for yourself.
Every moment is a gift.
Life can end faster than it started;
Don’t waste it selling out.
This is your
One chance to
Make a name
For yourself.
You may not become the man
Who walks around
[with] a million fans.
But that’s not the point of the band
Do what you love.
This is where you let it go,
Because you know.
Soon the fakers gonna show.
Which way you gonna go?
This is where you the it go,
(You can’t turn back.)
Because you know.
Soon the fakers gonna show
(so choose your path)
Which way you gonna go?
(Never forget
The choice is yours
But you must live with yourself.) (x2)
Track Name: Jessie
(And for you)
Some of us don’t come with an
Optimistic view of life;
Bruises [and] scares for the world to see.
I’m seeing stars be the end of each day,
Every day.
Can’t tell [you] my insecurities
The world tells me.
They’re never wrong.
I’m not that strong.
I’m at the edge,
Can’t control my head.
I'm spinning out
I’ll write this down
No matter how crazy it sounds.
(this is how I feel release)
What is the
Difference between
Art and insanity?
Are my words
Paint on canvas
Or psychotic ramblings?
Maybe they are one in the same
Is society to blame?
Should I reclaim
Control of what defines me?
Maybe their words only hurt cause
I let them hurt me.
I'm not saying it’s good to harden you heart.
I know that words they can,
They can sting like a dart.
But sometimes you’ve got to look the other way no
No matter what they say.
Track Name: I Am Legend
I've heard a lot about being a man.
Your arms race ain't part of my plans.
I don’t care if you don’t understand.
Take a part of what grows inside.
Is it the apple of your eye?
Does it whither up and die?
Is it from the sky?
Run from selfish men.
You may see
The seed in me.
That does not clear you hurtful words.
Why do you think I'm so obscure?
They say forgiveness is the cure,
But I'm not so sure.
That’s why I'm no better…
Take my hand,
I see what I’ve done.
I see my hypocrisy;
Now you can come to me.
Shout out ‘cause we are free.
Stand up and sing with me:
(Now I see.
Now I see, now.) (x2)
I forgive you.
Please forgive me.
It is so much harder
To see my own flaws.
I can see (x2)
[but] when I do
They are huge
It is about time we look at ourselves
Before we judge one another,
Judge each other,
Our brothers.
We will be
Among the free.
Can’t stop me
From being me.
It is about time we look at ourselves
Before we judge one another,
Judge each other,
Our brothers.
