Track Name: Used to Know
Once upon a time I used to know you.
Looking back you used to be somebody worth it too.
Time has passed, did you think we'd grow apart so quickly?
The way they are, things are not the same,
But what has changed, I can't explain it.

Stop that, why can't you leave it alone?
What's that, you're trying to pick at a bone.
I know. I know that it's a fool's game.

I don't care you say what you wanna say.
You talk the talk go ahead yeah that's okay.
I think you know it's better this way.

You're always with them drinking, carrying on.
Day time grunts make night time hipsters.
You're just someone I used to know.

Friends is that what you call them what a joke.
They taught you their pretentious ways, you learnt so well.
I've seen you round, you dress and act the part of high society.
And suddenly, it's difficult to think of who you actually used to be.

Stop that, why can't you leave it alone?
What's that, you're trying to pick at a bone.
I know. I know that it's a fool's game.

I don't care you say what you wanna say.
You talk the talk go ahead yeah that's okay.
I think you know it's better this way.

You're always with them drinking, carrying on.
Day time grunts make night time hipsters.
You're just someone I used to know.

It's not my problem anyway.
Just can't believe.
How far you strayed.

But times have passed and things have changed.
I still believe,
We could go back.

Once upon a time I used to know you.
Looking back you used to be somebody worth it too.

I don't care you say what you wanna say.
You talk the talk go ahead yeah that's okay.
I think you know it's better this way.

You're always with them drinking, carrying on.
Day time grunts make night time hipsters.
You're just someone I used to know.
Track Name: Same Old Story
She smiles at you,
You smile back thinking that,
This is something new.
You think she feels it too.

You take her out.
Make pretend she is yours,
But have you figured out.
She's just playing about cause,

Even though you're right,
You'll say you're sorry.
Though she's wrong,
You'll make it all right.
She told you differently,
But it's always the same old story.

You sit alone.
Can't work, can't think, can't eat.
Is this the first you've known.
An obsession fully blown.

She comes and goes,
Does as she pleases,
And her wish is your command.
Still you just don't understand.

You beg her to stay,
She's leashed your purse and heartstrings,
Another flawless play.
She'll end it and just strut away.

Even though you're right,
You'll say you're sorry.
Though she's wrong,
You'll make it alright.
She told you differently,
But it's always the same old story.

Even though she's wrong,
She'll make you sorry.
Though you're right,
You'll still get worried.
You told her differently,
But it's always the same old story.

When all your feelings show they're true.
She really don't know what to make of you,
And she'll tell all of her friends.
That you're wrapped around her finger.
Track Name: Lily
Distance and time,
How he knows them.
As friends and enemies,
When looking back at memories.

Funny how things change,
In a moment.
We never realised,
How quickly time just passes by.

Doesn't seem so easy,
Says he's keeping busy,
Please don't ever say good things don't last,
Even if soon they're gone.

And not a day goes by,
She doesn't catch his eyes.
Cause she's all he sees.
And she would never know,
How much she's on his mind.
Cause she's all he's thinking of.

Says she can't go on,
You know she means it.
He couldn't ask for more.
He kept her waiting too long.

Every now and then,
She drifts further away.
The empty words he speaks,
And promises he never keeps.

Doesn't seem so easy,
Says he's keeping busy,
Please don't ever say good things don't last,
Even if soon they're gone.

And not a day goes by,
She doesn't catch his eyes.
Cause she's all he sees.
And she would never know,
How much she's on his mind.
Cause she's all he's thinking of.

They said it takes time.
She asked just for how long?
He begs for one more chance,
And he's done the same before.

She knows he had the right intentions.
Distance and time make no exceptions.
Track Name: Instafame
Boys, all sing in bands these days.
Dreams, they're built with prime time noise.

So they, stand in line for ten minutes of show time.
It's more important to be seen,
Than to be heard these days.
How they know.
It pays.

So they say, it's what they live for when the camera's,
Rolling on, they'll go on any TV show.
Where they'll sing and dance, and do it all in vain.
All made easy, thanks to instafame.

Buy, your place in tabloids.
Loved by foolish girls and boys.

I know what you are going through.
I've been what you have been through.
Reality judges, they talking smack.
You call that talent, they just end up as.

E-list celebrities peddling dud advice.
Building egos just with their eyes,
You would think they're blind.
But they still lap it up,
While I laugh it up.

So they say, it's what they live for when the camera's,
Rolling on, they'll go on any TV show.
Where they'll sing and dance, and do it all in vain.
All made easy, thanks to instafame.

They say do anything to make it.
Go on these shows I'm sure you'll lose face.

Limelight it shines, they turn to divas,
Three months to pop stars then they'll melt down.
Cause instafame makes names only to stake claims on them.

Grown men and women taking orders.
Lasts only two years then they're all tears.
Cause instafame makes names only to stake claims on them.

And that's the way it's always gonna be.
Track Name: Islands
Twenty three years and you thought by now,
You'd know more than you should somehow.
Playing by their rules it don't suit you.

They teach you things that they say you should know,
But money and grey suits are all they have to show.
Don't tell me that impresses you.

So many out there know not what they want.
Just wait to see and take what they're given.

How they love to give advice.
They put you down and criticise.
But they can't see what a mess their own lives are.

No one is an island,
Though I'm starting to think its all I can be.
Oh why do you do it?
Impressing all of those that you never cared for.
Oh, don't get so down.

So many out there know not what they want.
Just wait to see and take what they're given.

All the times you wish, things could be simpler,
Well don't forget that paths you've taken,
To see how far you've come.

No one is an island,
Though I'm starting to think its all I can be.
Oh why do you do it?
Impressing all of those that you never cared for.
Oh, don't get so down.
