Track Name: Let Loose
Oh yeah, the week is over now no more pretending
Time to change from corporate robot back into a man
So shed your skin and call in your guard
No time to change the world, just leave it behind yeah

I'm tired of these mind-games, gettin’ thrown all around
Escaping from this daily grind is what I've gotta do
Heading on out for a night of the good times
Don’t want your excuses. I just wanna let loose

[CHORUS]
Whoa
Gonna let loose tonight
Get your head out of the game
And leave your shit behind
Yeah
Gonna let loose tonight
One more drink and take the floor
Let’s just hit this town tonight


See you there, eyes shining, at the back of the room
Makes me wanna forget all the things that were said
I’m trying to fight this damaging pull
I'm not out for this. I just want to let loose

[CHORUS]

Here on the floor
Surrounded by music
Crashing over me
I'm thrown all around
Body's moving without my control now
We're all gonna let loose
We've all gotta let loose

[CHORUS X 2]

Oh no, the weekend’s over, it’s back to pretending
Track Name: Bruised
You, you crept inside my mind
And told me you’re searching for something to help you define my love...
...but you can never know.
What you can’t see is how much I long to be free of these chains.
You’ve wrapped me so tightly restricting the feeling of pain
that I see on your face.

Cos not all the bruises I left on you make you happy.
And not all the cuts I inflicted reach your heart.
And despite the fire of wretched desire that burns in you
When all’s said and done it’s just you and I alone.

With you inside my mind
Searching for something that I won’t let you find, my love, because I’m afraid.
Of what you might see and how much you’ll long to be free of my chains.
Each link a lie as I’ve tried to hide my pain, my love, hide it from you.

Cos not all the bruises you left on me make me happy.
And not all the cuts I inflicted reach your heart.
And despite the fire of wretched desire that burns in you
When all’s said and done it’s just you and I alone.

With you trapped in my mind
Each layer pulled back as we’re under attack.
We can’t find our way out, of this place
Me and you... what can we do
But go on and on and find our way home.

Cos not all the bruises I left on you make you happy.
And not all the cuts you inflicted reached my heart.
And despite the fire of wretched desire that burns in me
When all’s said and done it’s just me alone...
With you in my mind…
In my mind…
In my mind.
Track Name: Tower of Glass
You built your empire… built your empire on a base of corporate greed
You built your empire… built your empire ignoring every other’s need
You built your empire… built your empire into only one mouth to feed
But now your empire… now your empire has met its match in me

What makes you think you’re different
From all the rest
What makes you think you’re better
Better than better than anyone else
That you’re above all of us
Why should we fuss.
You’ve got your shit together
Who cares about us

You built your empire… built your empire on a base of corporate greed
You built your empire… built your empire ignoring every other’s need
You built your empire… built your empire into only one mouth to feed
But now your empire… now your empire has met its match in me

You’re only one in billions but you’re focused on yourself
You’ve got so much potential to turn this world around
You’ve only got to open up your eyes to see the truth
That you’re part of the disease and the cure ain’t far away.

While millions huddle from the fire only canvas in between
You stand aloft indifferent in your shining tower of glass
I’ve had enough of you and your raging endless greed
I’m gonna smash that tower down, bring you to the ground

It’s time we send a message
From all the rest
The time is coming closer
Let's hope you’re ready for your final test
You’re not above all of us
Earn back our trust
It’s time to pay your debt now
If you’ve got the guts

You built your empire… built your empire on a base of corporate greed
You built your empire… built your empire ignoring every other’s need
You built your empire… built your empire into only one mouth to feed
But now your empire… now your empire has met its match in me
