Track Name: Life on Earth
Bored, all summer long
I’ll stay inside, I’ll leave the air on high
There’s nothing out there for a lump like I’ve become

Go, go to the beach
Put on your trunks, get sand inside your shoes
Smile for FaceBook and pretend you’re having the time
The time of your life

Try, try to keep up
Call your friends, make some dinner plans
Talk for an hour and reminisce about your high school

Find a menial job
Make someone’s lunch, make someone a buck
Wait for the paycheck so you can tuck it away
For a rainy day

What’s the point? I need a point!!
I need proof there’s life on earth
If it’s true, we’re stuck in a zoo
I need youth! I need youth...

Take it slow, play some Halo
On your TV, across the internet
Pull the right trigger and kill people you’ll never meet

Oh, this is dumb. I need some fun!
Maybe someone? A foot out of my door
I need an escape before I melt through the floor
Until the end of summer.

What’s the point? I need a point!!
I need proof there’s life on earth
If it’s true, we’re stuck in a zoo
I need youth!
I need you
Track Name: I Don't Want to Be a Man
No, no no no! I cannot do a thing!
My tongue has thickened up and I am frozen
I knew I wasn't meant for greater things
There's no place for me among the chosen

You must win this fight for all mankind
Don't you know it's true?
You must win this fight and save our lives
We believe in you

I don't want to be a man!
Get somebody else, I know I'm failing
I will never be a man
Shinji Ikari, you're not alone

Nonononononoenonononono! I've ruined everything!
My EVA has locked up and I am dying alone
Oh my god, just keep everyone away
Save yourselves - I will go down trying!

You must win this fight for all mankind
Don't you know you're home?
You must win this fight and save our lives
You are (not) alone!!

I don't want to be a man!
Just get somebody else, I know I'm failing
I will never be a man
I couldn't save anyone, it's the end of the world
It's the end of the world.

Everybody dies alone
Sooner or later there's no running

You are (not) alone

I must not run away.
Track Name: This Voyage (demo)
On this vessel we call our odyssey
Don't forget that, don't forget that,
you'll always be here with me
Through those whirlpools and other rundown ships
On my radar you'll always be the only active blip!

Across the hydrographic,
we'll find drifters here and there
Weíll pick them up, party it up,
and help them without a care
The grief of goodbyes will only be short-term
Cause there'll be more,
new friends out there and that I can confirm

I can confirm
So please don't drift away
No please don't drift away

This voyage is a lifetime
where you and I just kill time
and make it the absolutely best
better than the rest
of everyone out on this sea
it's perfect that its only you and me

On this course that we call our own journey
There will be some, there will be some,
rough waters in the sea
They will breeze by just listen to my voice
don't be scared, its all over, now we can rejoice

We can party every second and have the best of times
Living to, the max, damn it's so divine
With no worries and no need for a cure
There will be, no more sorrow and that I can assure

I can assure
So please don't drift away
No please don't drift away

I see you just watching
Please step up, start talking
and take my hand!
We'll get through anything
that's out there
Let's take a stand
Track Name: Asuka (single ver)
I am tired, but awake again
Cup in hand at three AM
And I'm terrified that I will hold you down

The specters all around my bed
Will comfort me and hold my head
But everything is cold here in the night

If you've got wings
You should use them
If you've got wings
Spread them and take flight
To me tonight

Tonight, tonight, Asuka.
Tonight, take flight, tonight.

I'm like a man who is paralyzed
Ten feet might as well be a mile
And a mile might as well be eternity

Let's call each other on the phone
Whisper how much we're alone
And pretend that a voice can make you warm inside

If you've got wings
You should use them
If you've got wings
Spread them and take flight
To me tonight

Tonight, tonight, Asuka
Tonight, take flight, tonight...

If you've got wings...
Track Name: Every Monster (acoustic demo)
I hate a lot of people the first time that I meet them
Hated my mother and my father,
I screamed at the world and cried

And as the years went on I twisted up my feelings
"The world is beautiful!"
A smile on my face as I spit lies

You're a bitch, you're a cunt
You're a lot of words I wouldn't use in mixed company
When you look into my eyes I want to strangle you
But I know
Every monster deserves a home.

I've almost killed myself a half a dozen times
I stare into the void, but get so fucking scared that it's the end
I punch myself across the face until I bleed
I weep until I fall asleep, pathetic helpless and alone

You hold the world at arm's length, cuz you're a coward, too
You'll never know my name, but I'm in love with you
Because we are the same
Bite your tongue and absorb the blow
Every monster deserves a home
Every monster deserves

When did I become the kind of person that I hate?
I hate a lot of people the first time that I meet them
I've known myself so long, eventually I will get better
I've known myself so long, my mood is changing like the weather

My mood is changing like the weather now.
Track Name: White Flag (demo)
Never thought I would get you here at all
17 - it was right before the fall
Ten to one and I needed to run
Away from here

They said your chest was the best thing about you
It's kind of sad, cuz I think that might have been true
I'd never met a human shell
So hollowed out

If you're so wise
Why are you so alone?
If you're still mine
Will you please just take me home?
I don't buy you for a second
But I'd sell you for a dime

I wasn't ready for prom night
I am so alone.
White flag, white flag

Looking back, should have left you at the door
I don't know if you could have stolen more
Oh, you were hip, but I don't give a shit
You're also scum

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
I'm not a toy for your amusement
I'm a Montague and you're a Capulet
We were doomed to die before we met

I am the patron saint of bad decisions
You're the Lois Lane of malcontent
I'm a Guy Fawkes mask, you're Natalie Portman
And I'm blowing up your parliament
I don't buy you for a second
But I'd sell you anytime.

I wasn't ready for prom night.
I am so alone!!
White flag, white flag, white flag

Please don't buy it
I am such a liar
I'm not telling the truth
