Track Name: Consider This
Another year has come and gone without much change
You said it would be different but it stayed the same
How could you be so ignorant to those who care?
But they will wait while you’re elsewhere
Some say it is a problem, some say it’s not
But you continue to live on without much thought
You’ve been asked before, but you don’t care
Cause they will wait while you’re elsewhere

This resolution might be hard to do
But we will ask you anyway

Consider this my wish, to leave this all behind us
‘Cause the numbest skin comes back to you
‘Till you change what you don’t want to
Consider this my wish, to leave this all behind us
Will you resolve this large issue?
Is it too much to ask of you?

Change is what we need to flourish and to grow
Just let your faults be washed out with the undertow
If you remain so ignorant to those who care
They might not wait while you’re elsewhere
Rid yourself of all this useless baggage now
Fight so you can pick yourself up off the ground
Do yourself a favour and begin to care
Then we’ll wait, even if you’re elsewhere

This resolution might be hard to do
But we will still ask this favour from you
There might be ups and downs along the way
But we will ask you anyway
Track Name: PED Dispenser
There is a reason, that some believe in
They really think that they always need to use them
It gets inside and, you can’t deny it
They work well but can you justify it?
But when it’s time to grind you know you’re not alone
Cause all the others are the same and they’re not gonna atone
They’ll be the first to say that they aren’t all like you
Enjoy the race, but if you wanna win, you know what to do

Some will take the path, where they’re told to go
And others take the road, where morals are not gold

I know that some might realize
That it’s not all about the prize
But there are those for which they know
There never will be compromise
So when your time is all but done
And when your medals are all gone
Will you regret the choices made,
Or will your legend still live on?

Ask some young player, they’ll reply never
But that can change if they crumble under pressure
Cause as we grow old, we aren’t quite sold
In the ways that we train and how we are told
But then you find there is a faster, better way
Cause all the others do the same, and make improvements each day
How can you let them get that extra edge on you?
Enjoy the game, but if you wanna win, you know what to do
Track Name: Some Kind of Songster
Yesterday’s come and gone, time flies so viciously
Don’t try to dwell on it, cause that won’t change a thing
Tomorrow’s on it’s way, and it can’t come too fast
Till it’s a yesterday, thoughts linger with the past

No need for explanation
Just sprint to the finish line
There is this expectation
Things will sort out easily with time
The past is nothing but a ghost
The future is filled with hope
Don’t waste your only precious life
Stop rushing, just take your time

There is this big picture that seems invisible
At its extremities, but not in the middle
It’s always now, now now, paired with “I wish I had”
So why not take it slow? The past won’t seem so bad

Time will not change

Just take your time
Stop searching for the answers in thoughts of past
Start acting in the now or you’ll finish last
Don’t think too far ahead or you’ll be lost in the crowd
Track Name: Test Us Tyrone
Work isn’t quite the same
Status doesn’t change
I’m working but I’m going nowhere
Time isn’t on my side losing faith
I’ve tried turning things around
So I’ve gone and found
Something that works and is quite appealing to me
As I’m moving on, there isn’t any waste

If I take this test
Will I pass all the rest?

Show the way, as the water rises I am sinking
Give me what I need
Break the bounds, and lift me up a status higher
Let me take the lead

Some say it isn’t right, they put up a fight
They don’t really know how this works
Why can’t they keep their eyes to themselves?
When did they start to care? They don’t know
Their morals, and ethics and ignorance can be quite bliss
I don’t wanna run, will this ever end?

If I take this test
Sill I pass all the rest?

Will this be my downfall?
Will I crumble?
Can it really last?
Is this risk OK,
Or am I playing with a bluffing hand?
Track Name: Daydream
Sitting, thinking looking round
Mind is racing, it starts to drown
Thoughts of people come to mind
Then there’s reason she’ll be mine
Cause I start dreaming of things to be
What could happen if she picked me?

But then the world stops
Now I have awoken
And I come to terms
That it’s on me

Everybody always wants a little more
Than what they’re used to
But then there comes a time you know
You’ve got to think it through
All this is my imagination
It could all be wrong
I’m looking somewhere else but she
Has been here all along

Can’t decide what’s best to do
All this searching can’t come true
Cause I keep dreaming of things to be
Shouldn’t this be up to me?

Give it time and, think it over
Have I really fallen for her?
It’s real simple [I know, I know]
It’s real simple [I know, I know]

Sitting, thinking peacefully
Mind’s at ease now, cause she’s by me
Track Name: One Good Night
Another day goes by
I keep my same disguise
Although you try to hide your gaze I see those eyes

Let’s pretend it’s all a game
And break the rules for just one day
That’s the cue I’m looking for
What we wanted, so

Find some time and let’s meet up in the back room
God you look so fine, it makes me wanna kiss you
My ego says it’s right, but I know it’s so wrong
Let’s have one good night, only one good night

You might not be the one I was looking for
At this point, I don’t care, let’s just lock the door
Though this needs to stop, why don’t I just let you?
Let’s have one good night, only one good night

The way you talk to me
The way that I tease you
We know it’s gonna go someplace we both want to

Let’s pretend it’s all a game
And break the rules for just one day
Let’s give up on mixing what we want
With what we need so

It may not be perfect
Do I really care?
Youth won’t last forever
So I’m here
Track Name: University Avenue
Second chances, I still made the same mistakes
Four years later and I still don’t know what it’ll take
We’ve gone around and I thought I could read your face
But now I know that we’re going our separate ways

Will that night be the end of all we had?
Cause every time I go back we fall again

Will I feel the same as we drift away?
Will you ever know what I’m trying to say to you?
Will I feel the same as we drift away?
Cause I just wanna tell you so many things right now

That way I saw you the night that it all had changed
The lasting feelings were sublime and still unphased
Now that’s the past but I still hang on with some hope
That you’ll see clearly and give us a different road

I’ve been thinking the worst of this again
Now everything points to this being the end
Track Name: Teal Memories
I’m happy to be here
Good things have happened year by year
It’s now a sacred place to me, in my heart

As I walk through these doors
And pass through corridors
Imagining that this is the first time that I’ve been here
The memories I’ve had
The times spent good and bad
It feels like yesterday that I was right back in first year

We’ve gotten so much smarter and we’ve done some things quite dumb
But that’s the point and I can’t say I haven’t had much fun
We’ve travelled cross the country and we’ve travelled cross the town
And since I’ve been a part of this my life’s turned up side down

Up side down
Won’t turn around
Up side down

We all move on each year
And celebrate with cheers
To know that we would just be seeing everyone again
But now my time has come
It seems that it’s all done
I don’t know how I’ll face the time when I have got to leave

The people that I’ve met have gone ahead and changed my life
I’m at the point that I can’t live without them day and night
This culture that we’ve built up hasn’t ever been this strong
And I’m not sure I’m ready to say goodbye and move on

Can’t move on
I’ll move on

At this point on from the start
This time is stamped on my heart
And I am so proud to be considered a warrior

At this point on from the start
This time is stamped on my heart
And every time I’ll look back
To smile, it won’t be that hard

We’ve had fair our share of fun
And though for now it is done
We’ll see each other again
We will forever be friends

The people that I’ve met have gone ahead and changed my life
I’m at the point that I can’t live without them day and night
This culture that we’ve built up won’t ever be matched again
Although it’s sad for now, we’ll see each other again

All my friends
I’ll see you then
I’ll see you then
I’ll see you again
