Lyrics:

Verse 1

Some people say I’m a miserable bastard
They want to know if I’m having a good time
The thing with me is that I don’t always show it
My disposition is that way inclined
I go to parties and hide in the bathroom
Wonder if coming was a mistake
Don’t get me wrong yeah I’m glad I’m invited
Oh now and then I just need a break

Chorus

That’s why I need some alone time
So I can clear out my mind
Used to think I was faulty inside
Now I know I am alright
Just the quiet type

Verse 2

When I walk down the street people greet me
Saying I should turn that frown upside
‘Cheer up mate it might never happen’
‘Mind your business get out of my way’
‘What’s your problem are you having a bad day?’
‘Look it’s not personal I’m really OK’

Chorus

That’s why I need some alone time
So I can clear out my mind
Used to think I was faulty inside
Now I know I am alright
Just the quiet type

Sometimes it’s cool to be quiet
Sometimes there’s nothing to say
Enjoy the moment in silence
Sometimes that’s my kind of day

Verse 3

It’s not a bug it’s a feature
‘Cause I’m somewhat of a dreamer
And now I do my own thing
And people listen when sing

Chorus

That’s why I need some alone time
So I can clear out my mind
Used to think I was faulty inside
Now I know I am alright
Just the quiet type

Lyrics

Verse 1

That’s no way to start a conversation
Subvert my expectations by putting me down
You think you’ve figured me out
Before I’ve even opened my mouth oh
You want a confrontation and use your words to
Give me the runaround

Chorus

I know cynicism has appeal
But tell me how you really, really feel
Sarcasm has no place here
Would it kill you to be sincere?

Verse 2

Now you say that rules are meant for breaking…. But
There’s something to be said for social graces
Your tongue is sharp and you stab it right through my heart oh
It’s just a game… you keep saying, but look around, ‘cause no one wants to play with you
So how come no one wants to play with you

Bridge

I’ve been in your shoes I’ve said things that I regret
When I’m nervous and I’m trying to impress
So let’s start over and pretend that we’ve just met
When we’re honest there’s no need to second guess intentions

Chorus

I know cynicism has appeal
But tell me how you really, really feel
Sarcasm has no place here
Would it kill you to be sincere?

Chorus 2

I know cynicism can be a shield
I’ll tell you how I really, really feel
Sarcasm is so last year
It would not kill you to be sincere

Lyrics

Verse 1

I stay up late ‘cause I cannot face what’s coming the next day
Watch blue screen light, I’m hypnotised, wake up with red eyes
I’m not a victim, this is self inflicted, I trade my nervous system for pay
I put my shift in as time is ticking away and I wonder, is this a fair ecxhange?

Chorus

Adrenaline, my chest feels tight
Adrenaline, can’t sleep at night
Adrenaline, fuel for the fight
Adrenaline, Adrenaline

Verse 2

Rise and grind, work 9 to 5, Ha! I wish!
I’ll fall behind, if I don’t hustle on the side
I give my heart and soul, work my fingers to the bone
Hope that I make it before I crack
I’m compromising my health ‘cause I keep pushing myself
What keeps me going might give me a heartattack

Chorus

Bridge

Everything has a price, I know I have to change
When things are bleak I look inside
Decide to go all the way

Chorus
