Carácter 04:58
You never know what you're never told So let me tell you what I think about the world today We need to listen more to one another And stop falling into the traps they set for us You gotta play, you gotta play the game But no one said you couldn't break the rules now and then And it's allowed, it's allowed, it's allowed to make mistakes That's how we all grow up anyway You'll never find what you're looking for if all you can think about is being safe Go, you go with your gut and never regret the things that you're giving up Cause we're allowed to make mistakes That how we separate the wounds from the pain And we're allowed to make mistakes I don't think I can fake it forever I know we can make it together So we won't stop till the job is done Or till we fall asleep No we won’t stop till the job is done Or till we fall asleep

This has been a good year, the best so far Nothing amazing but I’m in charge I’m feeling good and I’m feeling sharp All I’m doing it just works out This has been a shit year, the best so far You're going backwards but you're marching on I know it's hard but you must trust me when I tell you "don't give up, don't give up" We’re on the same boat, you and I, won’t you think over? At the very least, making preparations to disembark. We’re on the same road you and I so come a little closer What I’m trying to say is "we’re making progress all the time" We’re never entirely there, I say We’re never entirely there We got it figured out and we know the drill So let's just party and take some pills Prepare, prepare, prepare For all the good times are coming back They're coming back We’re on the same boat, you and I, won’t you think over? At the very least, making preparations to disembark. We’re on the same road you and I so come a little closer What I’m trying to say is "don't you worry, its only life" We’re never entirely there, I say We’re never entirely there

You may judge me you may dare What will it change? The fuck if I care You take our money and you take your cars You take them over to your father It's time to get a little dirty I think I'm craving something messy I need to go to the other side I need to get myself some pride I really wanted you to be my friend But I think you better run I really, really wanted you to be there But I think I'm better off on the other end. These point and click encounters They take a toll on a my agenda There's nothing to be scared of Just give me time, and I'll give you my love I really wanted you to be my friend But I think you'd better run I really, really wanted you to be there But I think you're better off without my help. I really wanted to be your friend but I think you better run away from this mess I really wanted you by my side but I don't want to be the one to make you sad I really wanted you to be my friend I really, really wanted you to be there

How Sad 05:21
If you think you're ready If you think you got it Just hang it on the wall and wait If you think you're ready If you think you got it Just hang it on the wall and wait If you think you're ready If you think you got it Just hang it on the wall and wait And If you figure it out, if you figure it out, why don't you show me ? So I'm sad I'm sad and I like it, I like it Who said sadness was a bad thing? Sadness is the reason I move between the lines and over the edge of your kingdom, You wait for me there you wait for me there, my darling Yeah I'm sad, And if sadness is a bad thing Oh well, I like bad things

I don't really know why I decided to talk to you about my life this morning I'll keep it short, I really don't want to bore you anymore than I should I'm not sure what's missing but I know I really have to fix it right now It's already too late and we got time before we die but why wait? Cause after all, It’s really not as bad as we think, this mess we're in All we need to do is open up All we need to do is talk about it All we need to do is open up our minds because our eyes are melting up All we need to do is talk it out when it puts itself In front of us We're all fighting, we're all fighting together If there's one thing I've learned from all this: it's a waste of time to run And the answers are with you All we need to do is open up All we need to do is talk about it

Comfortably 05:26
You sit comfortably I'm in space and I'm about to disappear I never meant to hurt you dear But I'll never be the man you thought I'd be You destroy me, hate on me take, take all the time you need In space there are no needs And we throw the best parties you've ever seen I get why you're not here I know you'll come around And when you do we'll go out for a dance And when we dance we'll dance away the common need And when we dance we'll dance away the common need

Milad Majik 03:28
Carry the load, I know it’s real Travel a lot and fight the disease Give me some more and give me what real Give me some love and I'll know it's real I know what I want, you know/got what I need So give me some love and let's make it real Meet me outside, let’s go for a ride Show me the things that you don’t want to hide I wanna clean up this mess that I'm in so Give me some love and I'll make it real Give me some love and I'll make it real Yeah, I wanna feel alive, I wanna feel alive Say what you want but I won't turn around I never said I'd change my mind and I don't think I will I'm where I wanna be

Bend Again 06:37
No one ever says these things to me and that is ok with me No one ever bends the rules for me If you go away, go away tomorrow I’ll be lost but I’ll wait because I understand Why, why you did No one ever takes it seriously. If we all did, wouldn’t everything be better? When you’re saying no to all the things you want, when your mind tells your body to sit down and sleep and let it do its job Go outside and walk a little while Go outside and stop caring about the weather and whether you should bend again Just let yourself cry
