Colorbooks 03:20
Colorbooks are made to fill the gaps within the lines if you break the rules you may be asked to start another site try again As many times as you have tried as many times you've failed to understand what you've been asked try harder to fit in try again No success in fitting in, achievements far away you ask for guidance and a helping hand to stay with you You may found God but God has left so you have turned to right fighting hard raising a flag to praise your unique state of mind but try again It's hatred that you spread because it's hatred you've received even when the only warming thing is love that you will need so try again No success in fitting in, achievements far away You ask for guidance and a helping hand to stay In ecstasy you may believe the world is upside down Follow leaders, idealize and yell your rebel songs But come on and try again Accused of lies you draw the line and build a cave to hide inside the hideous monster you've created, violence oh try again Conspiracies, rage increased, gathered zombies filled the streets Consideration long abandoned, love yourself oh try again No success in fitting in, achievements far away you ask for guidance and a helping hand to stay In ecstasy you may believe the world is upside down Follow leaders, idealize and yell your rebel songs But come on and try again So come on and try again Follow leaders, idealize and yell your rebel songs Follow leaders, idealize and yell your rebel songs Follow leaders, idealize and yell your rebel songs But come on and try again Come on and try again Come on and try again Come on and try again

Backstreets 03:09
You grew up in the backstreets of misery with a sparkle in your heart Used to roam on the streets being a lower thief fighting to survive With a talent gifted by the gods the belief in your own will working hard to get out this agony heading out for the world But in times like these you ask yourself what it's like on the other side if only you could turn the page again When you danced on the screens, another pirouette invincible to the bone untouchable for the living man bigger than life you were Celebrated, glorified sadness in your eyes In a heartbeat defeat you were sacrificed from the top of the world But in times like these you ask yourself what it's like on the other side if only you could turn the page again Carry on, oh carry on carry on, carry on Carry on, oh carry on, carry on carry on, oh carry on Carry on the torch lit by the stars Carry on the weight Lose yourself in drugs and fantasies Die for peoples' dreams Live on in peoples' dreams But in times like these you ask yourself what it's like on the other side if only you could turn the page again if only you could turn the page again if only you could turn the page again

Hell in Shelter Weekend morning cartoons turn the volume up with joy Cover up those scars hit harder and restrains let it in Settle down with your nightmares fight the demons in your head Hide behind the wall of pillows let the screaming go away Disconnect and escape cut the cardbox and get in Swim through rivers and the ocean just get far away from here The place that you claim to be home The shelter you thought you would belong to a stranger and evil the hell a stranger and evil the hell When the orange juice taste sour but your mother tries to smile in her eyes you notice sorrow has it been another fight Blackened eyes and the grief in her words you try to help but you hide behind bars Coward lips stay mute for a while Trembling hearts shake perpetual The place that you claim to be home The shelter you thought you would belong to a stranger and evil the hell a stranger and evil the hell Blackened eyes and the grief in her words you try to help but you hide behind bars Coward lips stay mute for a while Trembling hearts shake perpetual The place that you claim to be home The shelter you thought you would belong to a stranger and evil the hell a stranger and evil the hell The place that you claim to be home The shelter you thought you would belong to a stranger and evil the hell a stranger and evil the hell
