Track Name: Masochist
I felt sorry for you, but that feeling changed. Just like you’ve changed into this masochist. I’m sick of watching you hurting yourself. You don’t want to be patched up. So stay in hell. It’s your life. Not mine, but understand: I gave up, you gave in. Now hold on or let go. This story gets old and my sympathy has left just like you did, but you keep crawling back. You admit defeat, but you won’t realise we won’t help you anymore. I never wanted to, but I hated you for a minute.I never wanted to, but I hated you. So stay in hell. It’s your life. Not mine, but understand: I gave up, you gave in. Now hold on or let go. I’m sick of watching you hurting yourself. I’ve watched you change into this masochist.
Track Name: I Will Never Conform
Call it rebellion, but I really tried to blend in with the crowd. It didn’t feel right. We could get along but I don’t share your dreams. ’Better safe than sorry’... well, not for me. Television, Radio, Small Talk, I will never conform! Don’t get me wrong. I really wish I could be a bit more like you: Satisfied easily. Never surprised, but also never let down. I think I will dig a little deeper. Good for you. You have found your home. But don’t drag me with you, even though you want the best for me.
Track Name: Hope Is For Suckers
I’ve seen darkness a couple of times. I know how disappointment feels. Feeling bad? Believe me I’ve been there. Wasting days, waiting for ages for one single moment ‘I’m gonna make it’. Just like every time I was wrong. I don’t know how to get rid of this ‘all time low’. Should I resist or just let go? I could wait for the undertow to take me away. Everyday I tell myself that hope is for suckers. Hold on to all your dreams. They’re destined to fail. Don’t wait for miracles to happen. I’m truly hoping someday I will understand. Keep on making the same mistake. I keep telling myself that practice won’t make perfect instantly. Wasting days, waiting for ages for one single moment ‘I’m gonna make it’. Just like every time I was wrong.
Track Name: Denied In Return
Have you ever felt like you’re on your own, just when you needed help the most? I still remember all of the days you left me out in the rain. I’m losing count, because I can’t count on you. I’ll be there for you, but would you be there for me? You have let me down every single time. I’ll be there for you, but would you be there for me? Denied in return. I thought you would return the favour, but I guess that you’re not my saviour. I am fed up being your superhero, because your gratitude is zero. I still remember every single day you left me out
here in the stinking rain.
Track Name: Friendshipwreck
What should have been a blast, has just become a funeral. Our conversation died. I’d like to carry on while you slowly fade away. It’s history. Had enough! Done with this! Time has come! This friendship has sunk to the bottom and I am done pretending that we will work this out. This friendship has sunk to the bottom. There’s nothing left but this friendshipwreck. Apologies and I.O.U.’s, always bringing the bad news. You’re the one that hits the brake. Not in time, too fucking late. When you are back on your own feet, realise it’s history.
