Track Name: Fire With Fire
It ain't the end of the world girl
You'll find your place in the world girl
All you gotta do is stand up and fight fire with fire

Big or small makes no difference
We're gonna tell them what shape you'll be
All you gotta do is stand up and fight fire with fire

You gotta run on
We're gonna find you
Who-ho-oh
You turn around
We're right behind you
Yeah-eh-ey
Can't you see that the bigger we are the harder you'll fall

Now it ain't the end of the world girl
You'll find your place in the world girl
All you gotta do is stand up and fight fire with fire

In the end no one is innocent
Big or small it makes no difference
Get up, stand out and hold your head up higher and higher - higher

You gotta run run
We're gonna find you
Who-oh-oh
You turn around
We're right behind you
Yeah-eh-ey
Can't you see that the bigger we are the harder you'll fall
Track Name: Standing In The Way Of Control
Your back's against the wall
There's no one home to call
You're forgetting who you are
You can't stop crying
It's part not giving in
Part trusting your friends
You do it all again and I'm not lying

Oh oh oh
Standing in the way of control
Yeah live your lives
By the only way that you know, know

I'm doing this for you
Because it's easier to lose
And it's hard to face the truth
When you think you're dying
It's part not giving in
And part trusting your friends
You do it all again but you don't stop trying

Oh oh oh
Standing in the way of control
Yeah live your lives
By the only way that you know, know

Oh oh oh
Standing in the way of control
We'll live our lives
Because we're standing in the way of control
We will live our lives
Because we're standing in the way of control
We'll live our lives
Because we're standing in the way of control
We will live our lives, lives, lives

Your back's against the wall
There's no one home to call
You're forgetting who you are
You can't stop crying
It's part not giving in
And part trusting your friends
You do it all again, you don't stop trying

Oh oh oh
Standing in the way of control
Yeah live your lives
By the only way that you know, know
Track Name: Jealous Girls
You said your peace
It's killing me
I can't believe
It's over, over, over

You're not the enemy
But underneath
You don't agree
Take comfort that
It's over, over

Your hands tied
You feel shy
Believe I'm on your side
Now and forever
Over

Jealousy won't get you anything that you lost
Jealousy it will never be what it was
Jealousy well I'm afraid of what I've become
Jealousy it feels like everything's come undone

You're not the enemy
But underneath
You don't agree
Take comfort that it's over
Over
There's an urgency
A dire need For the remedy
Take comfort that it's over
Over

Jealousy won't get you anything that you lost
Jealousy it will never be what it was
Jealousy well I'm afraid of what I've become
Jealousy it feels like everything's come undone

No matter what the price, they can't take me
No matter what the price, they can't take me
No matter what the price, they can't take me
No matter what the price, they can't take me
No matter what the price, they can't take me
Track Name: Coal To Diamonds
I think I feel a little hurt
My fists are turning coal to diamonds
Why no one told me so much work
Would all go into tryin'?
Oh, but those feelings ain't the same
How some things never change
Well, nobody's perfect
And I knew better
Anyway

I thought about it 'til my head hurt
I thought about it but it only made things worse
I thought about it 'til my head hurt
I thought about it but it only made things worse

So I was wrong
What could I do?
I knew all along

I think I feel a little hurt
My fists are turning coal to diamonds
Why no one told me so much work
Would all go into tryin'?
Oh, but those feelings ain't this strange
How some things never change
Well, nobody's perfect
And I knew better
Anyway

I thought about it 'til my head hurt
I thought about it but it only made things worse
I thought about it 'til my head hurt
I thought about it but it only made things worse

So I was wrong
What could I do?
I knew all along

I'm a fool for you
Track Name: Eyes Open
Well I keep my eyes open
I worry for nothing
And all the sweet things I don't say
Are gonna get me in trouble some day

And the harder that I try, I know
The harder I push you away
And I'll, I'll admit that I'm scared

So I keep one eye open
And I keep my lights on
Track Name: Yr Mangled Heart
If everything you do has got a hold on me
Then everyhting I do has got a hole in it
I've been here before, I should be used to it
But I can't take it no more, I can't take it no more
Oh whoah

Your mangled heart
Your battered love
It's hanging on to memories
You're letting go
Of everything that used to be
I've had enough
You built me up
To let me down

If everything I do has got a hole in it
Then everything you do has got a hold on me
I've been here before, I should be used to it
But I can't take it no more, I can't take it no more
Oh whoah

Your mangled heart
Your battered love
It's hanging on to memories
You're letting go
Of everything that used to be
I've had enough
You built me up
To let me down

I don't want the world
I only want what I deserve
I don't want the world, the world
I only want what I deserve
I don't want the world, the world
I only want what I deserve

Your mangled heart
Your battered love
It's hanging on to memories
You're letting go
Of everything that used to be
I've had enough
You built me up
To let me down
Track Name: Listen Up!
Ooh oh ooh oh
I warned you, you didn't believe me
I warned you, you didn't believe me
I warned you, you didn't believe me
I warned you, and now you're caught

There's some people that you just can't trust
But some people talk way too much
Take my advice, and listen up
Don't be a fool like the rest of us
Now listen up

Ooh on the playground
Ooh on the playground
You learn so much

Now listen up
Now gather 'round,
Listen up
Gather round, now

1, 2, 3 - take it from me,
3, 4 - so much trouble in store
4, 5 - get it right
The first time, count it with me now

Ooh oh ooh oh

Everybody knows someone like that
Who borrows money and won't pay you back
They'll talk about at the drop of a hat
Lie about it to your face, when there caught

There's some people that you just can't trust
But some people just talk too much
Take my advice, and listen up
Don't be a fool like the rest of us
Now listen up

Ooh on the playground
Ooh on the playground

You learn so much
Now listen up
Now gather 'round
Now listen up
Gather round now

1, 2, 3 - take it from me

Track Name: Holy Water
Holy water
Smoke & mirrors
Boiling water
You'll disappear
I think by now i know
What evil really is
As pure as the snow
The taste on yr lips
By a small fires glow
When we were only kids
Someday everyone will know
Exactly what you did
Holy water
Smoke & mirrors
Boiling water
You'll disappear
Someday everyone will hear
Then they will know who you are
You'll have to bare the fear
Try to escape in the dark
Holy water
Escape in the dark
Track Name: Keeping You Alive
Ohhhhhhhh,
Ohhhhhhh,
Fear is a curse,
The terror of twilight,
The fear of the nighttime,
A curse,
Peace will come,
There are people that love you,
You don't have to do this alone,

Well nothing seems to matter
Your whole world seems to shatter
I'll keep you alive
Well everything is nothing
It always turn to something
If you give it time
When emptyness surrounds you
And there's no one else around you
Let me be your light
When its barely together
It's you and me forever
You keep this in mind

Don't take it back babe
It's about not giving up baby
Please wake up
There are people who love you
You don't have to do this alone

Well nothing seems to matter
Your whole world seems to shatter
I'll keep you alive
Well everything is nothing
It always turn to something
If you give it time
When emptyness surrounds you
And there's no one else around you
Let me be your light
When its barely together
It's you and me forever
You keep this in mind

Don't turn your back baby
It's about not giving up baby
If you give it up babe
The world will drive you crazy

Well nothing seems to matter
Your whole world seems to shatter
I'll keep you alive
Well everything is nothing
It always turn to something
If you give it time
When emptyness surrounds you
And there's no one else around you
Let me be your light
When its barely together
It's you and me forever
You keep this in mind
Track Name: Dark Lines
Heavy makeup
Doesn't cover up
The many sleepless nights
I can't hide
Under dark drawn on lines
The circles underneath my eyes

Ooh, why me?
Ooh somebody tell me why?
I go to parties, and all I see
Are a room full of faces, staring back at me
Tell me why, why me?

You paint a picture
Of a sad and long winter
Oh, when you were mine.
Sometimes I hear you talking,
Your reflection in my coffee
And I can't stop crying

Why me?
Why me?
I go to parties, and all I see
Are a room full of faces, staring back at me
Tell me why, tell me why me?
Ooh tell me why?
Why me?
Why me?
Mmmm
