about

Villain Perth, Australia

Track Name: Left Behind
I can see that you're looking
But there's nothing I can say and nothing I can do
Just pass it off as casual
But obviously I don't live up to you
Go on, say it, what you think of me
You know you have the answers but that doesn't mean I'm going to agree

I know we don't fit in
You've made that clear for all to see
All I'm doing is sitting
I can see what's on your mind but you won't talk to me
Go on, tell me, that I have to leave
It doesn't really matter what you say, you don't bother me

Well you're well on your way
To being left behind
No one looks back, no one looks back
You're well on your way
To being left behind

I can see that you're looking
But there's nothing you can say and nothing you can do
Try to pass it off as casual
But there's one thing we both always knew
Go on, say it, that you don't approve
Maybe you don't mean it and it's just because you've had a few
Track Name: The Other Side
Run, running away
To the place, you remember
Refuse, to give up
Refuse, to surrender

Why is it oh so hard?
To see what we once had
It won’t go far

Sometimes in the light it’s so hard
To see the looming darkness
And to you, it might seem
My approach was heartless

Why is it oh so hard?
To see what we once had
It won’t go far

In all the scenes in all your dreams
It always seems the grass in green

Why is it oh so hard?
To see what we once had
It won’t go far

In all the scenes in all your dreams
It always seems the grass in greener on the other side
It always seems
Track Name: Tequila Mockingbird
It’s not always what it seems
When you’re stuck somewhere in between
Reality or a dream

Last night I heard you say you’re wrong
No patience left to carry on
No patience left to keep on strong

When it’s not so far away
It’s much easier to say

Found myself on the wrong side of town
And through the dark could see your frown
But I couldn’t put you down

I heard the rules were made to break
An opportunity for you to take
But you’re wriggling trying to escape

When it’s not so far away
It’s much easier to say
You always have to have your own way
You never find the time to stay
Track Name: Brave
Change, change the pace
Soft to touch, hard to blame
Feel the space

Turn, turn that wheel
Lies are told, scars don’t heal
Close the seal

Don’t you know
We all reap
What we sow
In the end
In the cold
Nothing grows

Build, build that wall
You better make sure, it don’t fall
Build it tall

Break all you’ve made
You're not so tough, you’re not so brave
It’s all a charade

Don’t you know
We all reap
What we sow

In the end
In the cold
Nothing grows

You should know, you’ve been told
In the end, in the cold
Nothing grows
Track Name: Pointed Guns
It’s not like I’m from the slums
But being met by pointed guns
Makes me think that they think I am

It’s hard enough to get along
Having done nothing wrong
But I’m sure I can

Some way through this, you know
You’re going to have to let me go
You’ve got to get through this, to show
