Track Name: Video Star
"as far as the eye can see
I pull emotion every chance I meet
at the back door
whisper insecurities
everybody knows me
but they don't what it means
ooh ooh

don't smile too much
don't forget the line that you marked
don't rush
they ain't got a lot in their lives
just push
till we're getting caught in the same
please please

just look where you are
don't risk
everybody loves when you say progress
you afraid of heights
so you won't fly this
but you'll sweat enough
to remain flawless

acquired a lot
so you really don't fear
don't nobody know
if you really don't care
won't nobody know
if you really don't try
everybody know
but you really don't mind


light up for the video star
the message clear
you' love this so
I love this
we'll stand up
when the voice on the video starts
no other sound is like this


we're not willing to leave it alone
hey oh
At the end of the day we are sold
ooh ooh


now try too much
now you've got a place in the line
don't rush
everybody loves when you say progress
everybody loves when you shout progress


acquired a lot
so you really don't fear
don't nobody know
if you really don't care
won't nobody know
if you really don't try
everybody know
but you really don't mind

I heard that the message is forged
an everything's off
you sold it
but who wrote it
and I heard from back
there's a cynical claim
no other game is like this


we're not willing to leave it alone
hey oh
At the end of the day we are sold
ooh ooh


We saw something special "
Track Name: Incessant Noise
"and true I find it hard to sleep
because nothing in life is insusceptible
to change I know I know I know I know

afraid I'll long for what will pass
and find it's empty on the other side
and so I hold I hold I hold

and if I were to pour
the worries that I have out loud
I would be drowned
by the incessant noise
by the incessant noise
by the incessant noise


and while I feel this rise this fall
I'm pulling even more to stay in place
I am settled in this way
I am settled in this way
I am settled in this way

if loss were not an obstacle
then I would keep us as we are today
I am settled in this way
I am settled in this way
I am settled in this way

and if I were to pour
the worries that I have out loud
I would be drowned
by the incessant noise
by the incessant noise
by the incessant noise"
Track Name: Lovin You Down
her history is telling
can't refrain it from talking
let it spoil in the spotlight
let us take it from view

please never bring me back
when my body dies
don't let me be lonely

and when every single thing I do
stops making sense

take this photograph
when the angles right
say I love you
let me repeat this day
let me do it my way
and don't say that I've suffered this life no

Li Li Li


ooh she got this scar
from a leap of faith
she decided to
learn from this mistake
making ties to observe
the effects of breaking them down

ooh she's got a gaze
crafted to engage
those who knew it well
left quietly
she accepted your
adoration though
she would justify boundaries in her heart

loving you down
loving you down

my heartache in telling
can't refrain it from wanting
let it hide from the spotlight
let us push it from truth

please never take me to
where my body lies
don't let me be lonely

before every single thing I do
stops making sense

take this photograph
when the angles right
say I knew you
let me repeat this day
let me do it my way
and don't say that I've suffered this life no

Li Li Li

ooh she's got a gaze
crafted to engage
those who knew it well
left quietly
she accepted your
adoration though
she would justify boundaries in her heart

loving you down
loving you down
