Track Name: Young and Unaware
Our minds wouldn't change for anything
We thought we could rule the world
We will substitute the world with thoughts
We will substitute the hurt with worth

The world will change from what it used to be
We won't fight it any more

We were young and unaware
Thinking life was so unfair

The lights how they fade from what they've been
Can't find what I'm looking for
I once understood the way things worked
Now I underestimate my worth

We were young and unaware
Thinking life was so unfair
Don't ask me to compromise
I'll tell you that my heart isn't...

Don't ask me to compromise
I'll tell you my heart isn't there

We were young and unaware
Thinking life was so unfair
Don't ask me to compromise
I'll tell you that my heart isn't there
Track Name: Fader
I'm in transit
floating stranded on this boat
And I pledge myself allegiance
To a better night sleep at home

And the sweet, sweet sun's comin' down hard
The sun's comin' down hard
It burns the bones
So hold a hand for cover
Hold a hand for cover
Hold a hand for cover from harm

Talk don't change a thing
Oh, it's fading fader
Words don't sink, it swims
Oh, it's fading fader

Bless this mess we tried our best
Thats all that we can do
While the angels walk with the lonely ones
In the cold rain to rescue you

And this fable world's comin' down hard
Walls comin' down hard
In all our homes
So hold a hand for cover
Hold a hand for cover
Hold a hand for cover from harm

Talk don't change a thing
Oh, it's fading fader
Words don't sink, they swims
Oh, it's fading fader

Talk don't change a thing
Oh, it's fading fader
Words don't sink, it swims
Oh, it's fading fader
Track Name: We Should Have Listened
Blink for a second and then it's gone away
The words I held so dear are losing focus again

We should have listened, but now it's gone
We didn't listen to what they had to say
We should have listened, but now it's lost
We had our chance to change
We had our chance; we threw it all away

Time, the oppressor, waits for no man at all
Save those lucky few who hold it dearest to them

We should have listened, but now it's gone
We didn't listen to what they had to say
We should have listened, but now it's lost
We had our chance to change
We had our chance; we threw it all away
