No More 03:14
I'm not playing, I just want to go home I'm not playing, I just want to go home I see that sparkle in your eye I see the smirk upon your face I know with certainty that I will always be in second place But as if there's another girl I know there doesn't need to be I know that in your little world You're always top prioority You always going on to me You're always think the worst of me And I am sick of your condescension No more falling over you No more following you No more of my doe-eyed adoration I'm not playing, I just want to go home I'm not playing, I just want to go home You see, I'm smarter than you thought And I have got you figured out You're like a spider who got caught In her own web now Let's just bring this to an end A little interaction I don't need you to pretend I was anymore than a distraction You always going on to me You're always think the worst of me And I am sick of your condescension No more falling over you No more following you No more of my doe-eyed adoration I'm not playing, I just want to go home I'm not playing, I just want to go home

It's getting hot I am delirious I can't see straight I feel delirious Not sure if it's the news of the fever dreams But I can't make sense of what's happening to me Can't stay awake But I can't fall asleep My body aches Feel like I'm fading I'm soaked in sweat but I'm still shivering And I am scared of what is happening What's happening What's happening to me Oh, oh, don't think I can take anymore I don't know what it means Don't know if it's just me Don't know if it's a dream I don't know what is real I feel confused Not sure quite where I am So much to take in I can't handle it Minute by minute is how I get through The hell of this thing that is happening It's happening It's happening to me Oh, oh, don't think I can take anymore I don't know what it means Don't know if it's just me Don't know if it's a dream I don't know what is real

Waking Up 03:20
Waking up at God knows when And I don't know what day it is But I do the same as every other day Waking up, but God knows why Clocks go forward; I don't know the time Don't recall feeling any other way And I keep existing Not sure there's more to life than that I keep on drifting Through the days Lost track of how long it's been Since I've seen another living soul Wonder if I remember how to speak Playing with the internet Maybe the computer is my friend now Wonder how long until it can really feel And I keep existing Not sure there's more to life that I keep on drifting Through the days Oh, I'm longing to see your face I'm longing to hear your voice Wake up; it's another day Fight my way through more of the same And I guess that has to be enough But there will be better times When I can call this life And not just a brain and a pulse

Hide Away 03:57
Today I'm hiding in my room Can't take the news Can't listen anymore So I'll keep hiding in my room Can't see there's any place That I need to be So I'll just hide away I need to hide away Today I'm hiding here at home Pretend I don't hear the door Pretend I don't hear the phone 'Cause I am hiding here at home The world's too dangerous To go out on my own So I'll just hide away I need to hide away Under my covers I'll be safe Today I'm hiding from the world No-one will see me If I keep my eyes closed I'll keep on hiding from the world No-one can hurt me If I keep my heart closed So I'll just hide away I need to hide away Under my covers I'll be safe

The Same 03:07
I'm sick of talking to myself I'm not good company I think I'd rather be anywhere else Than stuck at home with me And I want to see the world No matter how far or near Just get out and see the world Just want to get away from here And I wanna know When all of this is over Will it ever be the same? Do you want it to be the same? Tell me when we get out of here Do we go back to how it was before? 'Cause when I get out of here I'm hoping for something more And I wanna know When all of this is over Will it ever be the same? Do you want it to be the same?

When we've got to eat Yeah, we're staying home Want something to drink And we're staying home Got to see our friends But we're staying home And calling them instead Got a job to do But we're staying home Set it up so we Can just stay at home Work on VPN And you stay at home And not bother getting dressed Oh Want to sing and shout But we're staying home 'cause we're still allowed If we stay at home Got to see the sun But we're staying home And go out in the garden Oh... No one can free me From this plague's prison cell So I will be here Until it ends; until it ends Getting lots of rest While I'm staying home But my hair's a mess 'cause I'm staying home Food cupboard roulette While I stay at home And can't get to the shops Watching TV While I stay at home Catch up on my reading Stay at home Still get to see my family Stay at home - over video Oh... (gotta stay at home, gotta stay at home now) No one can free me From this plague's prison cell So I will be here Until it ends; until it ends

You always liked to play the Knight in shining armour Out to save the damsel in distress But life is not a series of Trials and monsters and fights to be won Life is so much more complex Someone Stop me Don't let me go Help me Climb back Up again Your fairytale would never Come to anything You're too caught up to see reality Someone Stop me Don't let me go Help me Climb back Up again What will it take to see you? What will it take to free you? I'm on the edge I'm looking down I'm on the edge I'm hanging on With fingertips but I am not gonna fall It won't take valour or brawn To win this fight Compassion takes so much more Someone Stop me Don't let me go Help me Climb back Up again What will it take to see you? What will it take to free you? I'm on the edge I'm looking down I'm on the edge I'm hanging on With fingertips but I am not gonna fall
