Lyrics

Bigger

Written By: Alan Brock

For all the things that I never did and
All the lives that I never lived
For all the time that I wasted here
And all the rules I could never bend

For all the pain that I never felt
For all the cards I was never dealt
Say I been numb way too long
But not tonight, I feel I'm

Bigger than the world
Wider than the sea
Brighter than the sun
Happy as can be
Longer than a life
Heavier than steel
I wanna move the earth
And feel all I can feel

For every lie I was ever told
For every dream I was ever sold
For every heart beat that never came
For every time I just watched the game

For every moment I watched roll by
For every love that I watched die
For every break I just pissed away
It stops tonight, I wanna feel

Bigger than the world
Wider than the sea
Brighter than the sun
Happy as can be
Longer than a life
Heavier than steel
I wanna move the earth
And feel all I can feel

For all the things that I never did and
All the lives that I never lived
For all the time that I wasted here
It stops tonight, I wanna feel

Bigger than the world
Wider than the sea
Brighter than the sun
Happy as can be
Longer than a life
Heavier than steel
I wanna move the earth
And feel all I can feel

Chance in Hell

Written By: Alan Brock

Stupid girl I love the words
That fall out from your mouth
Such stupid things and stupid dreams
That I would never doubt
And
You know I will
Disregard myself
You know I will
Give all I have for my chance in hell
With you
If all the bad ideas in this whole world
Were to come true
They would not add up to one
As bad as me and you
But
You know I will
Disregard my health
You know I will
Give all I have for my chance in hell
With you

Out on my own, I could do worse
I don’t know how, a love like ours is cursed
Still forever I’m yours

Stupid girl I want to share
This stupid world with you
And we will be so happy as our
Stupid dreams come true
And
You know I will
Disregard myself
You know I will
Give all I have
You know I will
Disregard my health
You know I will
Give all I have for my chance in hell
With you

When Falling Down

Written By: Alan Brock

These are the best days
To find new ways
To try to make amends

Everyone comes here
And we drink beer
And wash away our sins

Life is a strange haze
It’s a melee
We’re trying to get by

Here in a new place
With my old face
All I can do is try

When falling down
We get up, we get up
Off of the ground
When falling down
We get up, we get up
Though we may stumble around
When falling down
We get up

In a world full of cheap thrills
We got fake pills
That help us to survive

Overloading our senses
What the truth is?
What it means to be alive

When falling down
We get up, we get up
Off of the ground
When falling down
We get up, we get up
Though we may stumble around
When falling down
We get up
