Reckless 03:43
Listen up now, ladies and louts Settle down, take a seat in the crowd And I'll present my limit Of all the ghosts and the games And the bullshit within it You worked so hard to convince us That I was the witch and you were the princess Did I smash through your castle of glass? Expose the lies in your heart And the jealous remarks? Nobody knows all the trouble that you've seen Nobody knows but me CHORUS You're just a player on a station (I'm reckless, so reckless) You're just a junkie for attention (I'm reckless, so reckless) You had your hand upon a wrecking ball You know I won't just let you wreck it all 'Cuz I'm reckless, I'm reckless And you'll wreck less now I'm onto you Oh poor darling, you might have said That you had me right on the edge But you've never known a girl like me Who can defend to the end All the things she believes I'm moving on, I'll leave you behind You'll awaken in my wake just to find You lost the war you started While you were high on a lie At your pity party Nobody knows all the trouble that you've seen Nobody knows but me CHORUS Some good things are never meant to last More than a year, which is over way too fast And the best have lasted even less So you were just okay, I guess You were just okay I guess~

INVINCIBLE 03:45
I could fly past the speed of sound Run a hundred miles in a single bound Never thought to wonder why Never had found an enemy Who had any chance of defeating me There were quite a few who tried Used to be unstoppable Doing the impossible CHORUS But now you're, now you're gone I don't feel INVINCIBLE Yeah now you're, now you're gone Now these nights, yeah, I'm on my own Staring at the face of oblivion I've never felt so weak Out of love, or out of hope Pain is the catalyst that keeps us afloat When things are looking bleak Used to be unstoppable Doing the impossible CHORUS I'm the final hero standing There's nothing but the sound Of nobody around I'm the final hero standing My friends have all disbanded They're crashing to the ground I could fly past the speed of sound Run a hundred miles in a single bound Now I know the reason why We could be unstoppable Doing the impossible

I, I thought we had a deal Were gonna keep our friendship real 'Cuz at the start we swore We needed nothing more I kicked your ass at PVP Your horror movies lost me sleep Talking trash, so juvenile You'd do anything to make me smile You, you were the best friend I could've ever asked for But in the end your goal Has always been to score CHORUS I, I, I just dodged a bullet My heart, heart, heart just wasn't in it You closed your eyes and tried to kiss me Crushed my trust, and now you're history I, I, I'm so disappointed My heart, heart, heart is so disjointed You won't make me yours, yeah, I'll be damned I'll be the best you never had Now, I can see the truth Your real colours have leaked through An ugly shade of greed Where your heart should be I miss the guy I thought I knew You're a fake, a flake, and a user too So shallow, you can't understand So grow up, boy, if you think you can You, you were the best friend I could've ever asked for But in the end your goal Has always been to score CHORUS I never saw this coming Didn't know what you were doing Now I'm out of sight and out of mind I should've seen this coming Should've known what you were doing I laughed so hard I cried

Teeth 04:36
Heaven is fading into Hell The double life and the lies we tell One day will they understand And smile back when we're holding hands? I build this fortress to keep you safe But now I know living half a life Is not a life, I'm done with being afraid CHORUS I don't care, I'll open up my mouth and show my teeth Sing about the things that I believe I don't care, I'll open up my mouth and show my teeth Maybe then we'll both be free? Soldiers in a shallow war Digging trenches we can't ignore 'Cuz darling, yeah darling you're my fate A spark of love in a world of hate (And I don't care what they say now) I build this armour to keep you safe But now I know living half a life Is not a life, I'm done with being afraid CHORUS
