It ain't the end of the world girl You'll find your place in the world girl All you gotta do is stand up and fight fire with fire Big or small makes no difference We're gonna tell them what shape you'll be All you gotta do is stand up and fight fire with fire You gotta run on We're gonna find you Who-ho-oh You turn around We're right behind you Yeah-eh-ey Can't you see that the bigger we are the harder you'll fall Now it ain't the end of the world girl You'll find your place in the world girl All you gotta do is stand up and fight fire with fire In the end no one is innocent Big or small it makes no difference Get up, stand out and hold your head up higher and higher - higher You gotta run run We're gonna find you Who-oh-oh You turn around We're right behind you Yeah-eh-ey Can't you see that the bigger we are the harder you'll fall

Your back's against the wall There's no one home to call You're forgetting who you are You can't stop crying It's part not giving in Part trusting your friends You do it all again and I'm not lying Oh oh oh Standing in the way of control Yeah live your lives By the only way that you know, know I'm doing this for you Because it's easier to lose And it's hard to face the truth When you think you're dying It's part not giving in And part trusting your friends You do it all again but you don't stop trying Oh oh oh Standing in the way of control Yeah live your lives By the only way that you know, know Oh oh oh Standing in the way of control We'll live our lives Because we're standing in the way of control We will live our lives Because we're standing in the way of control We'll live our lives Because we're standing in the way of control We will live our lives, lives, lives Your back's against the wall There's no one home to call You're forgetting who you are You can't stop crying It's part not giving in And part trusting your friends You do it all again, you don't stop trying Oh oh oh Standing in the way of control Yeah live your lives By the only way that you know, know

You said your peace It's killing me I can't believe It's over, over, over You're not the enemy But underneath You don't agree Take comfort that It's over, over Your hands tied You feel shy Believe I'm on your side Now and forever Over Jealousy won't get you anything that you lost Jealousy it will never be what it was Jealousy well I'm afraid of what I've become Jealousy it feels like everything's come undone You're not the enemy But underneath You don't agree Take comfort that it's over Over There's an urgency A dire need For the remedy Take comfort that it's over Over Jealousy won't get you anything that you lost Jealousy it will never be what it was Jealousy well I'm afraid of what I've become Jealousy it feels like everything's come undone No matter what the price, they can't take me No matter what the price, they can't take me No matter what the price, they can't take me No matter what the price, they can't take me No matter what the price, they can't take me

I think I feel a little hurt My fists are turning coal to diamonds Why no one told me so much work Would all go into tryin'? Oh, but those feelings ain't the same How some things never change Well, nobody's perfect And I knew better Anyway I thought about it 'til my head hurt I thought about it but it only made things worse I thought about it 'til my head hurt I thought about it but it only made things worse So I was wrong What could I do? I knew all along I think I feel a little hurt My fists are turning coal to diamonds Why no one told me so much work Would all go into tryin'? Oh, but those feelings ain't this strange How some things never change Well, nobody's perfect And I knew better Anyway I thought about it 'til my head hurt I thought about it but it only made things worse I thought about it 'til my head hurt I thought about it but it only made things worse So I was wrong What could I do? I knew all along I'm a fool for you

Eyes Open 02:10
Well I keep my eyes open I worry for nothing And all the sweet things I don't say Are gonna get me in trouble some day And the harder that I try, I know The harder I push you away And I'll, I'll admit that I'm scared So I keep one eye open And I keep my lights on

If everything you do has got a hold on me Then everyhting I do has got a hole in it I've been here before, I should be used to it But I can't take it no more, I can't take it no more Oh whoah Your mangled heart Your battered love It's hanging on to memories You're letting go Of everything that used to be I've had enough You built me up To let me down If everything I do has got a hole in it Then everything you do has got a hold on me I've been here before, I should be used to it But I can't take it no more, I can't take it no more Oh whoah Your mangled heart Your battered love It's hanging on to memories You're letting go Of everything that used to be I've had enough You built me up To let me down I don't want the world I only want what I deserve I don't want the world, the world I only want what I deserve I don't want the world, the world I only want what I deserve Your mangled heart Your battered love It's hanging on to memories You're letting go Of everything that used to be I've had enough You built me up To let me down

Holy Water 02:43
Holy water Smoke & mirrors Boiling water You'll disappear I think by now i know What evil really is As pure as the snow The taste on yr lips By a small fires glow When we were only kids Someday everyone will know Exactly what you did Holy water Smoke & mirrors Boiling water You'll disappear Someday everyone will hear Then they will know who you are You'll have to bare the fear Try to escape in the dark Holy water Escape in the dark
9.
Ohhhhhhhh, Ohhhhhhh, Fear is a curse, The terror of twilight, The fear of the nighttime, A curse, Peace will come, There are people that love you, You don't have to do this alone, Well nothing seems to matter Your whole world seems to shatter I'll keep you alive Well everything is nothing It always turn to something If you give it time When emptyness surrounds you And there's no one else around you Let me be your light When its barely together It's you and me forever You keep this in mind Don't take it back babe It's about not giving up baby Please wake up There are people who love you You don't have to do this alone Well nothing seems to matter Your whole world seems to shatter I'll keep you alive Well everything is nothing It always turn to something If you give it time When emptyness surrounds you And there's no one else around you Let me be your light When its barely together It's you and me forever You keep this in mind Don't turn your back baby It's about not giving up baby If you give it up babe The world will drive you crazy Well nothing seems to matter Your whole world seems to shatter I'll keep you alive Well everything is nothing It always turn to something If you give it time When emptyness surrounds you And there's no one else around you Let me be your light When its barely together It's you and me forever You keep this in mind

Dark Lines 03:27
Heavy makeup Doesn't cover up The many sleepless nights I can't hide Under dark drawn on lines The circles underneath my eyes Ooh, why me? Ooh somebody tell me why? I go to parties, and all I see Are a room full of faces, staring back at me Tell me why, why me? You paint a picture Of a sad and long winter Oh, when you were mine. Sometimes I hear you talking, Your reflection in my coffee And I can't stop crying Why me? Why me? I go to parties, and all I see Are a room full of faces, staring back at me Tell me why, tell me why me? Ooh tell me why? Why me? Why me? Mmmm
