 +====== Paroles ======
 +===== Better Than Thousand =====
 +==== Self Worth ====
  
 +So many hedlines, so maniy lies
 +Whay in the world does it take to survive?
 +So many headaches, negative views
 +I'll tell you what the people could use...
 +
 +SEL WORTH - brace yourself !
 +SEL WORTH - you hate yourself !
 +SEL WORTH - and the hand that you were dealt !
 +SEL WORTH - because I'm value driven !
 +
 +So much stress, so much to do
 +Problems to solve but they don't have a clue
 +so much depression, directionless too
 +What can we find that will see us through ?
 +
 +SEL WORTH - brace yourself !
 +SEL WORTH - you hate yourself !
 +SEL WORTH - and the hand that you were dealt !
 +SEL WORTH - because I'm value driven !
 +Go !
 +
 +Yeah, what in this world does it take to survive ?
 +So many headches, so many lies !
 +
 +==== You were there ====
 +
 +Had no fears, stumbled around, full of myself
 +Afraid of tomorow, never looked ahead, no-one else
 +You gave me a push, I know you believed, I know you cared
 +And friendship & courage, never looked back and freely shared
 +
 +And I always lead to the extreme
 +Forget what it all means
 +
 +There was a man who thougt that this world spun around him
 +Couldn'​t see at all outside that world until you came in
 +Showed me a little logic, a middle path - it made sense to me
 +Now I'm finally beginning to appreciate all that you've done for me
 +
 +And I always lead to the extreme
 +Forget what it all means
 +
 +I have faith in you
 +And you believed in me too
 +I have faith in you
 +We've always tried to be true.
 +
 +==== Poison in your brain ====
 +
 +Suck it your senses, drink it down your throat
 +Hooked on their addiction, is there any hope ?
 +In a sex wrapper, in a gilded cage
 +We've been captured animals, but we should be enraged
 +
 +Poison in your brain !
 +
 +Earth and air and water will never be the same
 +Sold for the sake of progress for so little gain
 +A pill for pleasure, a pill for pain
 +Take a pill for sel-esteem, they'​re fucking with your brain !
 +
 +Poison in your brain !
 +
 +==== Live Today ====
 +
 +We've made our efforts for happiness -
 +well that endeavor caused more distress
 +How could you expect success unless…you lived today
 +
 +Tomorrow'​s dream may never come
 +and sure it's good to have some.
 +But instead of all this dreaming well why not just live today.
 +
 +Hope for that day that I can find the perfect situation where all is fine.
 +Just chasing my tail this hope of mine…I'​m going to live today.
 +
 +Trust no future however so pleasant.
 +Let the dead past bury it's dead.
 +Act, act in the living present. Live today.
 +
 +I know I've been waiting for a time that is present every moment.
 +I know his hankering has cheated out of a life but I'm gonna live.
 +
 +==== It Never Rains ====
 +
 +You couldn'​t stand it
 +You always demanded some attention.
 +I'll be damned if I understand
 +why you always have to have your name mentioned.
 +You thought that's what you wanted - you thought you knew.
 +But you never really had a clue.
 +
 +It never rains.
 +But watch out when it pours.
 +Play the fame game isn't it strange fuck with your brain.
 +Who's now your friend and who's now your fan?
 +They'​re not the same.
 +They don't want to know you, they just want to hold you,
 +and then let you go.
 +But you just hated being in the shadows - so here you go.
 +
 +It never rains.
 +But watch out when it pours.
 +
 +They'​ll love you without reason and they'​ll hate you too.
 +For just being the person you are and doing what you do.
 +But you really know it's the same foolish you.
 +
 +==== Just One ====
 +
 +I know it's the substance that really counts, but we're into number
 +we judge by amount. I know it the good, not just the plenty and with
 +all our abundance we end up empty.
 +
 +We deserve cake but we've settled for crumbs,
 +but I know one is better than a 1000…
 +
 +Taught how to purchase we consume by the pound but open us up
 +there'​s not much to be found.
 +It could simply imbibe a one sentence
 +of truth it's outweigh all the shit we drank up in our youth.
 +
 +==== Motivation ====
 +
 +Romantic embrace a kiss on the face.
 +He loves her like lions love lamb.
 +He's got an agenda so he'll befriend her.
 +But friendship he can't understand.
 +
 +She needs to be seen Queen of the scene.
 +She wants to conquer her man.
 +She says she adores him.
 +She'll take whatever she can.
 +
 +He's a popular guy
 +so we'll always try to imitate his style.
 +We hope he'll accept us, but if he rejects us
 +we were fools all the while.
 +
 +==== We Spoke Our Minds ====
 +
 +I knew to keep quiet was the crime of the time.
 +And if I did try it - It would be the death of my mind.
 +They said to be loved you must tow the party line.
 +But I can't pretend so I left it behind.
 +
 +So we spoke our mind.
 +And I'll never find that I'm a lesser man for speaking my mind.
 +
 +Popularity traded but at least I would speak
 +and my critics still wait for me to trip on the street.
 +When this world rains disaster why take a back seat.
 +We must move forward, let the meek remain weak.
 +
 +So we spoke our mind.
 +And I'll never find that I'm a lesser man for speaking my mind.
 +
 +==== Nightclub ====
 +
 +I know the guy at the door we won't have to pay.
 +Party all night, sleep in the next day.
 +Last nights girls' home by the phone.
 +Go in by yourself but don't go home alone.
 +
 +And we just stand and act and talk about nothing.
 +What else is there to do. Another day on stage.
 +
 +Why not live to investigate but we just sit and hallucinate.
 +This song is meant to instigate.
 +
 +Who's wearing what? Who's kissing butt?
 +Everybody'​s walking but not saying much.
 +(We'​re) looking for a real friend, looking for love,
 +but coming up empty in the night club.
 +
 +==== You Were The One ====
 +
 +I've known you a long time.
 +What you meant to me
 +I thought you knew, I thought you could see.
 +Lived life - for hours we were never apart
 +what made it sour - you broke my heart.
 +
 +You were the one - That made me unafraid.
 +You were the one - who would have thought
 +our friendship would fade away.
 +You were the one - that made me feel so alive.
 +You were the one - I want you to know how much
 +you made me cry.
 +
 +Do you even notice that there'​s nothing there?
 +I could never bring it up. How could I dare?
 +You played dumb, I don't think you really care.
 +Always wanted to spill my heart, but I was too scared.
 +
 +You were the one - that made me unafraid.
 +You were the one - would have thought our
 +friendship would fade away.
 +You were the one - that made me feel so alive.
 +You were the one - I want you to know
 +how much you made me cry.
 +
 +==== Alternative Nation ====
 +
 +Our alternative nation where all the individuals
 +are just being the same.
 +Massive imitation,
 +just a 90's version of the same rock and roll game.
 +Yes, the same corporate rock
 +but now we're sporting punk rock gear.
 +Who's shocked by tribal tattoos and your pierced ears?
 +
 +Search for identity -
 +you put in your time to grow to your dread locks.
 +Change the inside or you'll be just a freak, but you'll act like a jock.
 +Costume changes -
 +will never give you the answer you're looking for.
 +Personality can't be purchased in a skateboard store.
 +
 +A music revolution? No, I will not invest.
 +Same old institution,​ but I'm not impressed.
 +
 +We change our scene,
 +we change our fashion, but can we change our mind?
 +An alternative nation'​s intellectual unless we change our mind.
 +
 +Has the pit just become the dance of the dead.
 +We're moved by vibration with no brains in our head.
 +Ego boost put you up on the top of the crowd.
 +You only care that the music is loud.
 +
 +==== When Seasons Change ====
 +
 +You've got to let me grow, got to let me be me.
 +Did you really think that time would freeze?
 +A stagnant stand still just see - see what you've got?
 +To know you've got to grow, got to move from your spot.
 +
 +When summers gone and autumn comes and
 +everything has changed.
 +Why is it so strange? Why should we complain?
 +
 +Stuck in the scene circles as fads grow and die.
 +But positive living and thoughtful thinking don't apply.
 +We must learn what to embrace and what to throw away
 +or we'll make the same mistakes tomorrow that we beat yesterday.
 +
 +When summers gone and autumn comes and
 +everything has changed.
 +Why is it so strange? Why should we complain?
 +
 +When seasons change will I stay same?
 +
 +==== Is It Education...?​ ====
 +
 +High school enforced the way to achieve diploma
 +will get you all that you need.
 +
 +Follow their system bent to their threats
 +and 4 years later you're buried in debts.
 +
 +Is it education of just wasting your time.
 +
 +Learned how to drink and how to get laid,
 +and when it's all over you want to get paid.
 +Been called a loser, ruined moms dreams,
 +but I don't rate success by some college degree.
 +
 +Is it education or just wasting your time.
 +
 +I know what you've been taught. I know how you feel.
 +I know that you've been caught and it's lost all it appeal.
 +
 +==== Apology ====
 +
 +Ingenious ways of wasting time.
 +Misused intelligence seems like a crime.
 +Internet gossip got you glued to the screen.
 +Ignoring the world beyond your five favourite zines.
 +
 +And I'm sorry for the apathy.
 +And I'm sorry for the lethargy.
 +Won't let it get a hold of me.
 +Cause I won't settle for mediocrity.
 +
 +I heard your plans,
 +please go through with it.
 +I won't criticize,
 +I've got no use for it.
 +Armchair critics?!
 +They already blew it.
 +Let the dogs bark -
 +I'm just going to do it.
 +
 +The way we walk,
 +or talk we've just been playing.
 +We've been playing these roles.
 +Its plain to see we've lost sight of our goals.
 +Oh yes, just obsessed to impress.
 +Is that what -
 +is that what we consider success.
 +Consider success. (x2)
