Track Name: Smile
Time goes on and on
And it never thickens
When we're nearly gone
Then we'll know it's amazing, amazing
'Cause we've lived, laughed, loved, learned
Whilst the world it turned
In the end we will smile

Can we truly say
That we made the most of every single day?
And we never got lazy, lazy
'Cause if we had then we'd be so happy and we couldn't say

Go back there's something I missed

In time I'm sure we'll find
That we cannot help but feel the daily grind
And become fucking crazy, crazy
But if we live, laugh, love, learn
Whilst the world it turns
In the end we will smile

In the cold light of day
When we look through the haze
Clear as black and white
Track Name: Feels Just Like It Should
You sold your kiss to me
We danced electrically
I held your elegance
We felled our detriment

Feed the fire

Gone away is today
But it feels just like it should
'Cause when we float we float away
You know we cannot touch the flames

Feed the fire

Feed the fire
Track Name: Dream
You come out at night
You're as clear as day
You're as dark as twilight

My minds a pit and a cave
That you crawl right in and stay forever
Why don't you tell me a secret about yourself?
"Cause you're telling me lies

You're a midnight rave
You're a pox on quiet tranquil being
And when your stories repeating on itself
Then you've lost the surprise

Keep these thoughts in my head
My dream state of mind is something else
At least I know it's R.E.M
At least this story has an end

Why don't you tell me a secret about yourself?
'Cause you're telling me lies

You've got a twisted smile
Your scenes and faces melt together
And when your heroine morphs into a boy
Maybe it's time to alight

You're busted tonight
When you're chased then caught then chased then caught then
When you jump off a cliff and out of sight
That's when you know you're alive

Keep these thoughts in my head
My dream state of mind is something else
At least I know it's R.E.M
At least this story has an end

You did me proud last night
I drowned my bad guy, I won my fight
But swiftly travelled back in time
I had to start all over again

Keep these thoughts in my head
My dream state of mind is something else
At least I know it's R.E.M
At least this story has an end
Track Name: Bastoy
Murder and they're living on the devils island
Torturing and this is how they serve their time in
With no walls to break through out here
And no escape plans to hatch or endear

Work hard and they'll earn themselves a little dollar
Fresh start for the lunatics and bad no hopers
With no walls to break through out here
And no escape plans to hatch or endear

Gun-fighters, low-life's
Ring-leaders or juveniles
In Bastoy, the girls and the boys make good
In paradise

They need some time to combat their hell
They can't just carry on
But when they bare their chests and they fight
They'll know their demons are gone

Out there are no reprobates that clog the system
Just time, work, respect and then a man to listen
The idea of allowing a killer
To walk among us is anathema

Broken are the ones that crack the rocks inside and
Last chance for the wicked not to wrong their rights and
The idea of allowing a killer
To walk among us is anathema

Gun-fighters, low-life's
Ring-leaders or juveniles
In Bastoy, the girls and the boys make good
In paradise

They need some time to combat their hell
They can't just carry on
But when they bare their chests and they fight
They'll know their demons are gone
Track Name: Smile (radio edit)
Time goes on and on

That we made the most of every single day?
And we never got lazy, lazy
'Cause if we had then we'd be so happy and we couldn't say
