Track Name: Marionette
When your mind says give up

Hope whispers one more time

When you're drowned by bad luck

Just swim to the other side

It will hold you down
 spin your world around

It will pin you to the floor and
 throw you against these walls

And I'm a slave to it all



Just a puppet pulling back on my strings I wanna be free

Grab them like they're reigns and ride into the Galaxy

You won't keep me down I'll fight against the gravity

Pushing back against the weight that's on top of me


No one said it would be easy and
 I knew it from the start

I won't be defeated or beaten 
I've been broken bruised and scarred

It won't always be on your side
 but it will always light the way

If you can find it through the darkness amongst all the mess

You'll be heading for better days

And I'm a slave to it all




No matter what happens to me I'm gonna be fine

Take control of my life I'm gonna make it mine

Step back have a look tell me what you can see

Pushing back against the weight that's on top of me 




You can't hold me down!

For the first time in my life I can see what's right in front of me 

To blue skies from dark nights and fist fights with myself
I lost sight 

And I'm a slave to it all
Track Name: Against All Odds

No matter how hard I'm sure that we will be

I know you said we're unpredictable

The bad things we've heard we can't believe

Every time I turn my back something's been said

People never change
I need to know there is a better place to go 




Know what it's like to fight on my own

The mistakes I have always hung over my head

Are surely here to stay unless I change my ways

One day I'll learn this is how we made it




Battles bombarding us from left and right

No point running now we are consumed in the fight 

Times get hard but we get harder

Let's go back to when we first started

A circle that we’re in it finishes where it begins

A circle that we're in you know there is no better place to go


I've never seen the grain in your eyes more than I can see right now

Two twisted minds entwined the love is trapped inside 


Every time that I turn around a reason to leave is there to be found

When I turn around a reason to stay is there to be found

When I turn around a reason to leave is there to be found When I turn around a reason to stay is there to be found 



Know what it's like what it's like to fight on my own
It makes me wanna scream

Why me
One day I'll learn this is how we made it 

One day I'll learn this is how we made it
Track Name: Full Sail In Strong Gales
Everyday it starts the same
Open my eyes and hear my name

Telling me I need to make a change

Stand right up make this your day
 and
Start to live this life your way accept your fate don't be afraid

I pledge to live this life my way
 cast off the anchors that I made

These shattered chains won't hold me back 
I'm heading for the stars




It's my life and I can't wait till it begins 
and
I tried a new change 
from what I was in

Offline when I felt I couldn’t win

I died just to rise and try again 



This time I know that I won't fail
 Moving on through snow or hail 

This ship will pull me through 
Full sail in strong gales

Everyday It ends the same close my eyes and I hear my name 

These screams in my dreams are driving me insane

So stand right up make this your day 
It’s time to live this life your way
Accept your fate don't be afraid 



Chase everything that I desire

I've got to fight the fire

Everything that lights up to burn me down

Everyone inside this town 


I was always the one who took all things to heart

Never go back that far I've got a fresh mind new start

Hear it when I scream it it’s a brand new day 

Steam train rolling with max gain on rough rails

If the tracks I roll become frail
I will never fall back I will never fail 
Full sail in strong gales
Track Name: Reflections
I was staring at a screen that's showing every part of me

All my colours all my demons my sins can be seen

I can't hide it I can't fight it trust me I have tried

Give me another chance and I'll tear the darkness from the night
 



Reflections of my whole life I'll cut down with this knife
I don't like what I see, And I will fight until I'm satisfied 

With my life and who I want to be



I can't stop beating myself up I'm bleeding

Everybody's got something that's dark inside

Lay awake every night my eyes burnt from the bright lights that shine on my life giving up what I've got to hide

Roll over everything's gonna be alright

Close my eyes breathe deep

Feel good vibes inside and keep it there

Let go don't stare 
Just get some fucking sleep



The light refracts the fact that you're not intact
You can't attack fractures and cracks but you can't turn back 

Just step inside you'll realise where true love lies
Not inside that disguise but behind your own eyes 

The fact is you're not intact 
But you can't turn back

Just step inside you'll realise where true love lies
Not inside that disguise but inside your own mind
