Track Name: I Could
why is there the pressure?
its mine to lose...
why is there the need to join together in twos?
questions to be answered,
but no one here to ask...
sitting alone in silence,
hiding the truth behind a mask

you wouldn't understand,
i'm stuck the way that i am.
and every time,
i see your face, my heart starts to race,
but what if there was a change?
i could stop playing this game...
i could stop hiding myself,
i could be someone else,
instead of trying to be the same.

surrounded by people,
yet i feel by myself,
constantly searching for the understanding of someone else
and i tried to fit in, i tried so hard,
there's evidence;
my battle scars.
why can't i be free, why can't i be who i want to be?

you wouldn't understand,
i'm stuck the way that i am.
and every time,
i see your face, my heart starts to race,
but what if there was a change?
i could stop playing this game...
i could stop hiding myself,
i could be someone else,
instead of trying to be the same.

i wanna let go,
i'm sick of performing this show,
i don't wanna go with the flow,
i just want everyone to see,
that i just wanna be me.

and it's harder but i can't say why,
i can barely spread my wings,
and you can already fly.

you wouldn't understand,
i'm stuck the way that i am.
and every time,
i see your face, my heart starts to race,
but what if there was a change?
i could stop playing this game...
i could stop hiding myself,
i could be someone else,
instead of trying to be the same.

you wouldn't understand,
i'm stuck the way that i am.
and every time,
i see your face, my heart starts to race,
but what if there was a change?
i could stop playing this game...
i could stop hiding myself,
i could be someone else,
instead of trying to be the same.
Track Name: Snakes & Ladders
i’m not playing snakes and ladders with you
i’m not gonna be a stepping stone in your ego boost

who do you think you are?
not saying I'm the best but this has gone too far
i was happy leaving us in the past
but then you took your shovel and dug that grave up fast

and i wont be walked over again
not in the mood for your games
thought in these passing years you’d change
but it would seem a child remains

if you think i’ll let you back so you can be sly
you’d better rethink because i’d rather die

cause i’m not playing snakes and ladders with you
i’m not gonna be a stepping stone in your ego boost
i’ve said whats to be said that i don't approve
so go ahead you’d better make a move

and before you turn around and take my hand
it’s time to explain, you see i don't quite understand
why was everything done secretly?
listen here honey, nothing goes past me

and yeah i know that i screwed up
but i’ve really had enough
of being as and when you need
then flung to the floor when you take lead

you better not be about to give me up
and replace me with this messy pup

cause i’m not playing snakes and ladders with you
i’m not gonna be a stepping stone in your ego boost
i’ve said whats to be said that i don't approve
so go ahead you’d better make a move

i hope you know you’re skating on thin ice right now
you’d better come off unless you want to drown
i've told you not once but twice, oh yeah you've heard this before
so for one last time i'd better hear no more

well you can creep around and try to hide
but secrets always find their way outside
you could just deny the truth
but when snakes slither theres nothing you can do

cause i’m not playing snakes and ladders with you
i’m not gonna be a stepping stone in your ego boost
i’ve said whats to be said that i don't approve
so go ahead you’d better make a move
