Track Name: One Hell Of A Fight
Run along my little partner in crime
There's a spell I gotta shake off tonight
I've walked through town just lose my thoughts
You fool around but not enough to get caught

There's all the choice there, I can't make a move
My head's all wrong and I don't wanna choose
I got nothin' to lose

Break the silence around you
(The curse of innocence)
Raise the hell that's in you

Disenchant the ways of my mind
Who under that spell submits to the lies
I've been played by a miserable tool
And it ain't gonna stop, cause I'm still a big fool
Just a game with no rules

Break the silence around you
(The curse of innocence)
Raise the hell that's in you
(The curse of innocence)
Oh yeah, all right
One hell of a fight
Ah yeah

Break the silence around you
Raise the hell that's in you
(The curse of innocence)
Break the silence around you
(The curse of innocence)
Raise the hell that's in you
(The curse of innocence)
Oh yeah, all right
One hell of a fight
That curse will die tonight
Ah yeah
Track Name: You Make Me Wanna Cry
All the sunny days will come and chase those clouds away for fun
Yet I still sit here waiting
You were unhappy yet you complained all the time
I got addicted to you make me wanna, make me wanna...

I ran away from mercy
To the promised land
To start a new life with a penny in my weathered hands
(Well weathered hands)
I still search for a reason
Yet I don't understand

I never picked you to be one with hollow lies
I got addicted to you make me wanna, make me wanna cry

All the sunny days will come and chase those clouds away for fun
Yet I'm still here and I'm waiting

A little happiness could not have been a crime
I got addicted to you make me wanna, make me wanna cry
( I wanna cry)
I got addicted to you make me wanna, make me wanna die
(I wanna die)
Track Name: Down The Line
Find me on the rooftop with a stubbie in my hand
Looked for ways to reason with a lifeless bitter man
Love thy neigbour but we've already tried
That uptight little prick is just not getting his ride
Not getting his ride, yeah

I'm a believer of compassion and good will
Dare make a single sound and blood is gonna spill
I just can't get my kicks by livin' in this place
His walls are screwed and he's a prude from outerspace
But look at the brightside there's a fridge full of beer
And we're gonna party like its the end of the year
I walked that line but now you wastin' my time
Down the line

(Down the line)
(Down the line)

(Down the line), whoa yeah
(Down the line)
(Down the line), Down the line
(Down the line), Down the line
(Down the line), whoa yeah
(Down the line), Ah-
(Down the line), -yeah
(Down the line), Down the line
(Down the line), Down the line
(Down the line), whoa yeah
(Down the line)
(Down the line), Down the line
(Down the line), Down the line
(Down the line), oh yeah
(Down the line)
(Down the line), Down the line
(Down the line), whoa yeah
Track Name: Bite The Bait
Man in the shadows
Lower your gun
I'm a figure in the darkness
With a song unsung

Last minute wishes
Just a little too late
So pull the trigger now gunman
That was your last mistake

When there's a will I will follow
No remorse in fate, let me bite the bait

Let me bite the bait

Man in the shadows with a toy for a gun
You fool me once but now I'm done
Big plot holes full of mystery
They don't make too much sense
It ain't me tryin' to bring you down
Cause you're too much of a mess

When there's a will I will follow
No remorse in fate, let me bite the bait
All too easy
Now strike me down

Now strike me down
Track Name: Lucky Charm
Bring me back in time it's my fantasy
I've been livin' in the past, can't you see
You were always my lucky charm
I wouldn't hurt a fly, I never did you harm
Maybe I lost track of who I was
But baby you know you still make me buzz

Oh honey when I let you go
I didn't know no better, I still love you so
Hittin' rock bottom and all hell holes
The devil let me out in exchange for my soul
Oh yeah
Now I ain't sellin' pity now rest assured
But that smile of yours, is more than I can afford

Lucky charm, and now you're gone
It's a cruel life, but I'll take it on
Lucky charm, and now you're gone
It's a cruel life but I'll take it on
(You're my, You're my lucky charm)
You're my lucky charm

Maybe I lost track of who I was
But baby you know you still make me buzz
Now I ain't sellin' pity now rest assured
But that smile of yours, is more than I can afford

Lucky charm, and now you're gone
Don't reel me in with that uniform
(You're my lucky charm)
Lucky charm, won't you disarm
You're a storm brewin', but I'll take you on
(You're my lucky charm)
Lucky charm, and now you're gone
Don't reel me in with that uniform
(You're my lucky charm)
Lucky charm, won't you disarm
You're a storm brewin', but I'll take you on
(You're my..) You're my lucky charm
(You're my..) Oh you're my lucky charm
Track Name: Can't Go Back
I was so afraid, I was alone
Stuck in a toxic house, far from home
Signs all around, get me homebound
To the edge of death I roam
Sleep, it could wait but it was too late
The harm had left its mark

All night long I played along
They turned me wrong that night
(That night)
Cancer to my pride, emotions left denied
But I can't go back, no I can't go back

I ran when they looked away, I ran till dark
The sheer thought of freedom gave me a spark
All in my mind, I'd leave it all behind
To push back all that heat

Oh I'd in a cave
But the guilt she goes to the grave
Feel the lower tide, safety has arrived
Don't feel like I'll survive

All night long I played along
They turned me wrong that night
(That night)
Cancer to my pride, emotions left denied
But I can't go back, no I can't go back
No I can't go back and make it right
All night long I played along
They turned me wrong that night
(That night)
Cancer to my pride, emotions left denied
But I can't go back tonight
No I can't go back tonight
(No I can't go back tonight)
