Lyrics

Test Pattern

Written By: M. Starr

Breathe in
See out
It’s not the feeling you feel inside
That makes you wonder
It’s not the reason you come alive
That keeps you under – now

Now
Can you feel your life
Now

Sometimes you feel like you’re going to too fast
Think it over
Find a way to make it last
Before it’s over – now
It’s not the feeling you feel inside
That makes you wonder
It’s not the reason you come alive
That keeps you under

Now
Can you feel your life
Now

Autofocus

Written By: M. Starr

All alone it feels the same way
This world has lost it’s mind
Now I feel you could save me
We can make it out alive

I’ll be with you everyday
Never leave you anyway
From now on I promise to
Always be here with you

Don’t believe what they say to you
Every word’s another lie
No one wants to be alone
No one really wants to die
No one ever wants to die

I’ll be with you everyday
Never leave you anyway
From now on I promise to
Always be here with you

All you have is all you know
All you want seems unreal
Now I see I belong here with you
There was nothing left of me

I’ll be with you everyday
Never leave you anyway
From now on I promise to
Always be here with you

Die

Written By: M. Starr

One more time is what you said
One more time is what you want
Now i found a way to see
There's nothing left here for me
I've been holding on so long
To something that i know is wrong

I don't have to tell you why
I 'm never gonna live this lie
I'd rather die

Don't believe what you want
Don't believe what you hear
It's not for real it's just a dream
All you want is what it seems
I don't care what you think now
It never mattered anyhow

I don't have to tell you why
I'm never gonna live this lie

I'd rather die than have you tell me lies
Wake up to your dark surprise
When you come & suck the life from me
I'd rather die than watch you standing there
Telling me how much you care
You don't give a fuck at all for me

I don't have to tell you why
I'm never gonna live this lie
I'd rather die
