Track Name: Dandelion
No better than anyone, no better now what's become of this?
Leaving the insincere, maybe they'll disappear, i've had enough of this hologram.

Not gonna call to the broken hearts now.
Not gonna crawl for the lonely marks now.
Just gonna stall when losing starts, how?

I've run away from the suffering and pain.
It'll never catch me up 'cos i'm a liar.
Nothing left to lose, just some mess that i've been through.
A story of another wasted life, don't waste your time.

Looking for a better deal, it's now losing it's appeal.
I've found it hard to find, oh nevermind!

No better than anyone, no better now what's become of this? No reason to co-exist.

The pieces of my life have blown away.
Choices of my life now thrown away.
Making up my mind with indecision.
I won't start just yet, i'll just think it over.
Don't think it over.
Track Name: Chinwag
I know a man who's all alone, all alone, all alone.
Talking to no one on his phone.
Please stop bringing me down.

Trapped by a mouthpiece on repeat, on repeat, on repeat.
Desperate for someone else to greet.
Please stop making this sound.

It's getting harder every minute, every hour, every day
To find a few more nowhere things to say.
And ranting is your life,
Drenched in verbal delight.
I'm the victim of your dictum,
and i'm tired of being polite.

Another question on it's way, not today, my dismay.
Chinwagging windbags got no shame.
He keeps on stressing me out.
Track Name: Paperthin
When you think about your life,
D'you wonder how or why,
People ever ended up like this?
Is everything a lie?

But when i was just sixteen.
The answer came to me.
I think i finally figured out,
Just what it all could mean.

The answer is 'nothing'
No, nothing at all.
What's the point in love when, in honesty,
We're all just waiting for our final curtain call.

Don't look back, try and stay on track.
It's a game you'll never win, 'cos everything's paperthin.

When you think about your death,
Are you left bereft of breath?
Do you think 'there must be more than this'
Well actually there's less.

So if you just follow me,
You'll find eventually,
The only path to truth is just
To kill everybody.

The answer is simple,
Was there all along.
Life is but a pimple,
On top of the arse-end of nothing so nothing you do is wrong.

Don't look back, try and stay on track.
What's the harm in following?
'Cos everything's paperthin.

The question is 'How could i find my own way?'
When everything that was good, was taken
Away in one horrible day, oh how could she say..

Don't look back, try and stay on track.
What's the point in worrying?
'Cos everything's paperthin.

So i won't look back, i have long since cracked.
And i know what i'm doing, 'cos everything's
Empty, meaningless and paperthin.
Track Name: Daytime Dilemma (Dangers of Love)
She came from a happy home,
A very happy home,
A very happy home.

Miss personality, a grade 'A' student naturally,
She had it all worked out.

But things aren't what they seem.
Is this real or just a dream?
And things will never ever be the same again.

She came from a happy home,
A very happy home,
A home of happiness.

Miss personality, a grade 'A' student naturally,
She had it all in place.
But things aren't what they seem.
Is this real or just a dream?
Things will never ever be the same again.

The dangers, it's the dangers of love.
The dangers, it's the dangers of love.

She came from a happy home,
A very happy home,
A very happy scene.

She caught him with another,
It turns out it was her mother,
What a tragedy.
Can things be what they seem?
Is this just some crazy dream.
Things may never ever be the same again.

The dangers, it's the dangers of love
The dangers, it's the dangers of love

Keep telling lies, but you did.
You know you did
It's coming, it's coming, it's coming.

The dangers, it's the dangers of love.
The dangers, it's the dangers of love.

What went wrong she couldn't tell,
But we know it all too well.

The dangers, it's the dangers of love.
The dangers, it's the dangers of love.
