Track Name: Waster
I'm not gonna waste all of my time,
Hanging around standing in line,
Kidding myself that everything's fine,

I'm not gonna let life pass me by,
If there's something to give I'll give it a try,
I'm tired of waiting, I wanna fly,

The reason for living isn't to die,
I wanna scream out, but I can't even sigh,
I missing the point when I'm wondering why,

How do I live my life this way? Killing time.
Doing the same thing every day, rots my mind,
And I've got to wake up now before it's too late,
The clock won't stop ticking on by,

CHORUS:
Time and again you fail just to get out and live your life,
Not even when it's clear can you see how, you're dying inside,
Pull yourself right up out of bed, and face the,
Truth that you know within, oh can't you see now?
You're a waster,

I'm tired of waking up just so I, can go back to sleep again,
I need to stop focusing on why, and think about the when,
And I’ve got to, make a change and pull my finger out,
I know the time is now.

I'm not gonna waste all of my time,
Hanging around standing in line,
Kidding myself that everything's fine,

I'm not gonna waste all of my time,
Hanging around standing in line,
Kidding myself that everything's fine,
Track Name: Look Around
Take a look around you and you’ll see,
The world is falling now,
This self-obsessed, diseased society,
Is slowly breaking down,

I can’t see a path to better days,
No advice on how to better ways,

Take a look around you and you’ll see,
I’m just part of the crowd,

Honour and honesty are both dying breeds,
We live in a world that’s ruled by gluttony and greed,

CHORUS
Before you cast a stone,
Take a look inside your own glass home,
Be sure you can throw,
Past your own ego,

Take a look around you and you’ll see,
Decorum burning bright,
A world that feeds it’s own hypocrisy,
Can’t tell what’s wrong from right,

I’m blinded by my ego and greed,
Will not give, won’t stop to sow a seed,

Take a look at how you live your life,
I hope you’re stronger than me,

Honour and honesty are both dying breeds,
We live in a world that’s ruled by gluttony and greed,

CHORUS
Before you cast a stone,
Take a look inside your own glass home,
Be sure you can throw,
Past your own ego,
Track Name: I Know How You Feel
I know how it feels, to live for the weekend,
I know how it feels,
I know how it feels, to be at your wit’s end,
I know how it feels,

You could do anything you wanted to,
It’s only you that can really guide you through,

I know how it feels, to face it on your own,
I know how it feels,
I know how it feels, to be lost and alone,
I know how it feels

You could do anything you wanted to,
It’s only you that can really guide you through,
It’s so true, there may not be someone who,
Is there for you, so make sure you look out for you.
Track Name: Years
As the weeks keep rolling by,
I hope my time is in sight,
As the weeks they turn to years,
I’m left, paralysed by my fears,
What if it’s not meant to be?
And my hopes will always be dreams,

Chorus:
So long I’ve waited for,
Watching as the years slip away,
Just hoping that this might be the day,
Dreaming of something more,
Just how long will I have to wait?
Just how long will I have to wait?

So many times I’ve felt so near,
But answers just never appear,
And I’m just left to contemplate,
Is this the extent of my fate?
So how hard must I try, to finally find out why
This life keeps throwing my dreams back in my face?

Chorus:
So long I’ve waited for,
Watching as the years slip away,
Just hoping that this might be the day,
Dreaming of something more,
Just how long will I have to wait?
Just how long will I have to wait?

So when I’m going grey, I’ll look back to today and I’ll say,
Years will pass but your dreams will last,
At the end of the day isn’t this the way that life says,
You won’t know ‘til your time has passed.
Track Name: Going Down
I don’t know just how you feel,
But I know this strife you face is oh so real,
So now it's time to take your fall,
But can you say that you have truly gave your all?

And though I hate to say it,

Down, down, down, down, down,
You’re going down,
My friend,
Down, down, down, down, down,
You’re going down,
And we might never meet again,
Down, down, down, down, down,
You’re going down,
Is this the end?

So now you have to take your chance,
As you prepare to face your lonely final dance.
So now it’s time to say goodbye,
But there’s no point in spending time wondering why,

And though I hate to say it,

Down, down, down, down, down,
You’re going down,
My friend,
Down, down, down, down, down,
You’re going down,
And we might never meet again,
Down, down, down, down, down,
You’re going down,
Is this the end?
Track Name: Welcome to the House
Welcome to the house of trouser,
Ignore that drunken musing scouser,
And come on in we’re just about to,
Crack open a drink for you,

So take a seat if you can find one,
And try to lose your inhibitions,
‘Cos all we wanna do is have fun,
And lucky for you, you’re invited too,

Well come on in, and please excuse the piles of filth that line these corridors,
And all the shit on floors,
So grab a drink, and we can talk about the things that bug you, and of course,
I’ll tell you mine if you tell me yours,

Chorus:
Welcome to the house that everybody knows,
Step into the house where anything goes,
Welcome to the House where the drink always flows,
Well done, you’re arrived at 24 Alma Road,

Don’t be alarmed if you fall into the pit where once there was a floor,
I’ve been there before,
And just be calmed, ‘cos you’re in good company with friends who know the score,
It was a 1-1 draw.
Track Name: I Can't Stay Tonight
Obviously, I can’t see what you see,
So tell me what it is I should be,

All this time, life has passed me by,
All the while, I’ve been wondering why,
How can you, live your life this way?
All you do is just work and play,

Am I thinking about this too hard?
‘Cos it’s tearing me apart,
But my life just seems to need a kick-start,
And now it’s time,

CHORUS
I can’t stay tonight, I’ve really got to get a grip on life,
I can’t stay tonight, I should’ve left before I even arrived,
I can’t stay tonight, Just something here that ain’t quite right,
I can’t stay tonight, perhaps another time.

Seriously, can you say to me?
Honestly, this is all life’s meant to be.

This life is driving me mad.
