Track Name: Shoegaze or Die
I wake up with a song in my head
A tune so simple that they can’t understand
The sound
It’s dark and gloomy

I go to bed with drugs in my veins
Spend my nights getting drunk getting laid
It’s true
Dad thinks I’m a waste

But every time when I close my eyes
Every time when I close my eyes
I hear music in my head, I’ll never ever let it go

Every time when I close my eyes
Every time when I close my eyes
I hear music in my head, I’ll never ever let it go

Music saves my life every day

I am a self-destructive boy

They say that youth is the scum of the earth
If you listen to rock’n’roll you will do drugs
So what?
What the fuck if I do?

But every time when I close my eyes
Every time when I close my eyes
I hear music in my head, I’ll never ever let it go

Every time when I close my eyes
Every time when I close my eyes
I hear music in my head, I’ll never ever let it go

Music saves my life every day

I am a self-destructive boy
Track Name: Some Things Last a Song
I close my eyes
‘Cause things are getting harder
I close my eyes
‘Cause I don’t see what you see
I just want to hold you tight
And never let you go
But you have won the fight
I leave you tonight

You’re so angry for victory
And I don’t care to lose
And it tears my heart apart
When we are in a constant fight
To destroy one each other
And I don’t know why
‘Cause the past is the past
Never meant to last

Is it me, or is it you?
Tell me what to do
‘Cause I don’t hear a thing
‘Cause deep down I’m dying
And God knows I love you
God knows we’ve tried
But I don’t know how to move on
Without hurting someone

I wanna hurry home to you
In your arms, where I belong
There I need to be
And forget about everything
But if I’m happy, I’m wrong
All the sadness inside
I hope it’s gonna pass
Some things last a song
Track Name: I Am a Fucked Up Child
I’ve been there, I’ve been left behind
I can’t stop thinking ‘bout your smile
Every day, every time
‘Cause I am a fucked up child

I’ve been abused, and I’ve been used to it
I’ve seen your gaze turning away
I know they say: “all things must pass”
But I am a fucked up child

You were my drug, my queen of nowhere
I could have ceased making mistakes
Now I crash myself as soon as I can
For I am a fucked up child

I walk on a dark path
I try to fix my broken heart
I can’t forgive, I can’t forget
You know I am a fucked up child
