Track Name: Massive
i’m ready to blow up
so shoot me into the sun
i don’t want to grow up
i’d rather die young
so i’ll keep fighting to keep the fire alive
you can find me in the night sky
you won’t have to squint your eyes
i’ll be MASSIVE

there’s no way up
cause we’re already at the top
so i’ll take a hard left
and never stop

i’m ready to blow up
so shoot me into the sun
i don’t want to grow up
i’d rather die young
so i’ll keep fighting to keep the fire alive
you can find me in the night sky
you won’t have to squint your eyes
i’ll be MASSIVE

blow by blow
they tried to put me out
they sank so low
trying to pull me down
rose till i burned brightly
trail of sparks behind me
if you love me set me free

i’m ready to blow up
so shoot me into the sun
i don’t want to grow up
i’d rather die young
so i’ll keep fighting to keep the fire alive
you can find me in the night sky
you won’t have to squint your eyes
i’ll be MASSIVE
Track Name: I Was a Mad Man
i was a mad man
i talked you off the ledge
and if i hadn’t
you know we’d still be friends
and if you ever want to see me again
you know where i am
i was whole then
i was a part of your life
you were my better half
now i’m barely a slice
you cut me out

you had no right
to treat me wrong when i was saving your life

i must have been a bad man in another life
bad man in another life
bad man in another life
what did i do to make you feel the way you do tonight?

sorry i’m not sorry
i still wish you all the happiness
tough love wouldn’t break your heart
if it wasn’t so brittle, miss
longest run in the biz
your drama plays out every night
you can lean on me
but you pushed me too far this time

you had no right
to treat me wrong when i was saving your life

i must have been a bad man in another life
bad man in another life
bad man in another life
what can i do to make you happy like you were back then?

i must have been a bad man in another life
bad man in another life
bad man in another life
what did i do to make you feel the way you do tonight?
Track Name: Act Like They Love You
the world is cold and damp and dark
you don’t know when it started
or how to make it stop
your sweet summer gets covered in frost
that’s when you shine with all your heart

don’t let them make you choose between happiness and being you
if their cheers turn to boos you’ve gotta turn it up and act like they love you
how do you know when it’s real?
how do you know when it’s real?

you feel like you’re a work of art
one out of a million that no one ever bought

don’t let them make you choose between happiness and being you
if their cheers turn to boos you’ve gotta turn it up and act like they love you
how do you know when it’s real?
how do you know when it’s real?

your sweet summer gets covered in frost
that’s when you shine with all your heart

don’t let them make you choose between happiness and being you
if their cheers turn to boos you’ve gotta turn it up and act like they love you
how do you know when it’s real?
how do you know when it’s real?
don’t let them make you choose between happiness and being you
if their cheers turn to boos you’ve gotta turn it up and act like they love you
how do you know when it’s real?
how do you know when it’s real?
Track Name: The Story of Us
you can take me back to heaven
but i would follow you to hell
at this distance it makes no difference
if you flew or if you fell
the good guys always win
cause the winners live to tell
please be gentle to my memory
i mean well

when our empire turns to dust
who will live to tell the story of us?

i serve the king of a castle made of sand
i will turn the tide or i will die by his command
the good guys always lose
because they play by a different rule
please be gentle to my memory
i have been a fool

when our empire turns to dust
who will live to tell the story of us?

light trickles through the cracks in the wall
young hammers make the mark of the beat
the good guys always lose
cause they don’t know that they are bad
please be gentle to my memory
i have done bad

when our empires turn to dust
who will live to tell the story of us?
Track Name: End of the Rainbow
sometimes i feel like the walking dead
i watch the dust fall on my guitar
i feel the rust in my hands
and i love what i do (don’t get me wrong)
but can i climb up to the top of the hill?

and if this life is just a test
i wonder if i’ll pass, i wonder what comes next
and who will wait at the end of the rainbow
to pat me on the back and say
“you did good”

somewhere far away in time i hear you call my name
blue eyes cut like diamonds through the pleasure and the pain
but do you, do you, do you, do you, do you, do you, do you, do you love me?
i want to believe you, but i’ve been lied to

who will wait at the end of the rainbow
to pat me on the back and say
if this life is just a test
i wonder if i’ll pass, i wonder what comes next
i want to believe you, i want to believe you
if this life is just a test
i wonder if i’ll pass, i wonder what comes next
