Track Name: Charizard
I left behind, the friends I had before
I didn't like the nicknames anymore
But now you're back, like you were never gone
And just looking at you's become a chore

I see you eyeing Charizard, it's not for trade,
the things you gave me were not that great
I know you were invited but you overstayed
You're friends are gone, you should head that way
But you won't

You're drunk again, I shouldn't be surprised
It seems to me, you are most of the time
I used to hope that things could be different
now everything is in constant decline

I see you eyeing Charizard, it's not for trade,
the things you gave me were not that great
I know you were invited but you overstayed
You're friends are gone, you should head that way
But you won't
Track Name: Otaku Love
He met her on a Friday, they hung out all day Saturday,
when Sunday came, she had to go home
If he could find a way to stay, to keep her here another day
Cause when she'd gone, he knew he'd be alone

I guess she was right, he's not from this world
A year will go by, 'til he sees his girl
This Otaku Love ain't easy, that's for sure

They both were wearing costumes, their gazes linked from across the room,
When he smiled at her, she blushed and turned to go.
She saw him at the next panel, felt something she couldn't control
So she walked over and stuttered a hello.

They soon became inseparable, their wits were quick, their hearts felt full.
the last two days were bliss as they flew by.
but things were drawing to a close, we've all heard how this story goes
and that last night things ended with a sigh.

I guess she was right, he's not from this world
A year will go by, 'til he sees his girl
This Otaku Love ain't easy, that's for sure
Track Name: Drive
What would you say if I said 'let's just go'
we could pack up the car and hit the road
the world's been spinning round, but we're still in this town
If we want to make a change we're on our own...so come on

Would you just turn the music up?
Could we forget about today?
We should just get into the car,
I want to drive the night away

I don't remember when it got so hard
to take the backseat and ignore my heart
so sick of everthing, but no one's listening
things would be different if I were in charge...so come on

Would you just turn the music up?
Could we forget about today?
We should just get into the car,
I want to drive the night away
Track Name: Self Destruct
You say you're bottom of the barrel that you're in
And you think you'd rise right to the top, but you can't swim

And every time you fall apart, I'll be the one you call
It's not that hard, I'll pick you up
If you self destruct

You say you’re trying but your back's against the wall
And you try to knock it down but you’re the one who falls

Did you think that I'd just let you walk away,
Did you think I wouldn't stay?
Did you think you'd have to fight all on your own?
let me help; you're not alone.

You say you’re tired of the rain clouds overhead
but i know soon you’ll see some sunlight instead
Track Name: Gone
We walk in ruins of our former selves
Of busted frames, of broken shelves
You met the challenge and I've been right beside you
Whether or not you couldn't tell

When you're gone, when you're gone
I'll take over when you're gone
It'll all be here when you get back
Whatever you're searching for, I hope that you find it
Cause we'll be waiting while your gone

The ice we're standing on is pretty thin
not looking forward to sink or swim
I've conquered my fear now we'll conquer yours
we'll find out what fate's got in store
Track Name: Combo Breaker
I pulled the trigger, but I don't remember why
Didn't take much to convince me, didn't take much to decide
Now the answer is a question, did anyone else survive?
Cause you've really dug yourself a grave this time

Now give it all you got
Now give it all you got
Now give it all you got
Now give it all you got

the world is crumbling as you take a look around
you strain your ears to hear me, but I never make a sound
the game is nearly finished, you're so close to being found.
will you run or will you try to stand your ground?

I guess now it's all up to me.
Let's just hope I can land on my feet
I've got to pull something from my sleeve
I'd rather die than admit my defeat
Track Name: Salty
Don't feel too bad that I embarassed you
It is my duty, I'm so salty
You've got no swag, you've got no attitude
You've got no talent, plus I'm salty

To me there's nothing better than an ego release
and I've got a whole armada hidden up my sleeve
if you think, if you dare, to compete against me
then you better be prepared for your ultimate ending

Ah ~
I know you've got no chance
and I choose to rub in, cause I'm so salty
Ah ~
It's just part of who I am
and I'm sorry I'm not sorry, I'm so salty

I’d like to say I worked hard to get this far
but it came easy, cause I’m salty
I've got more skill in my little finger
than you could hope for, I'm so salty.

All my life I've been told how to act, who to be
and I've spent too much time hiding the real me
Now, I’ve tried being sweet and could never pass for sour.
I’m too young to be bitter, guess I’ll have to be salty.
Track Name: 75%
Explain it one more time, cause I don't understand
why you get all the tools and I use my bare hands
Making all the calls from way up in the stands
Close up all the doors, but leave the windows open--

And she said, I know you won't believe me but
they're leaving you behind, leaving you behind
I said, I've been running my entire life
I knew it the whole time, I knew it the whole time

For you its all a game, For me a battle's lost.
you get it all for free, I'm paying all the cost.
running through the options, trying to exhaust
seal it from the world, but leave the windows open

No matter where I go, you're always in control
you're never satisfied until I reach the goal
One of these days it'd be nice to take a stroll
keep it locked up tight, but leave the windows open--

And she said, I know you won't believe me but
they're leaving you behind, leaving you behind
I said, I've been running my entire life
I knew it the whole time, I knew it the whole time
Track Name: Razorblades
Let all your hate flow right at me
The gloves are off, you failed to see
You wouldn't listen, and I've warned you loud and clear.
I got this friend I want you to meet

And He's got teeth like razorblades, cut right through your arm
His punches hit like hand grenades, he really lacks in charm
So here's your warning, and I know you'll think
Twice before the next time you even try to mess with me

Your little crusade ends tonight
You opened your mouth, you came to fight
You wouldn't listen and I've warned you loud and clear
you'd better start running, you know I'm right
Track Name: Press Start 2
History tells us let go of the past, guess I’ll leave it all behind
I want more from this life; I'm ready to climb
Instead of waiting and hoping, It’s time to make a change
(instrumental bridge)

History tells us to look before you leap, but I’m bored out of my mind
I'm ready to take a risk for once, I'm sick of wasting time
instead of playing it safe, It’s time to make a change

It's never too late to press start (on this game we call life),
but what’s the point of waiting anymore
There’s more to life than cliche
so put it in and press play
don’t be afraid to take the hard way
moving is better than just standing still

History tells us lay low and sing small, but I'm ready to raise my voice
chorus
Track Name: Think Twice
I'd give up the futon for you
I'll even order pizza if I have to
So you better think twice, if you think I won't do
Anything just to get next to you

I guess I could be player two
And you can use the headset, even though it's brand new
So you better think twice, if you think I won't do
Anything just to get next to you
