"[Glass Intrepid's] current vibe is a polished, radio-ready rock groove that veers between full-throttle growls and fist-pumping melodies. It's capped by impressive styling and image, a key factor often lost on local bands." -Joey Guerra Houston Chronicle Feb. 16, 2007

Lyrics

Whatever it Takes

Written By: Glass Intrepid

Its moments just like these, when hard enough to breathe, and I’m looking for an easy way out.
It’s the silence I ignore, that was never there before, now I’m filling up with more and more doubt.

There’s no need for an apology, if only you could see, the time is now or never.

I’ll do whatever, whatever, whatever it takes to be the one you want me to be.
If only you could see.
Whatever, forever, there’s nothing to say.
You don’t believe me so get out of my way.
Whatever it takes.

Take away, the distractions that remain, I will never be the same, I don’t care.
Because I’ve seen what’s got to go, and every time I think I know once again it goes to show, it’s not fair.

I’d give anything that is left to give.
Because in this world there’s one life to live.
Make the most of the time that is.
One more chance, can you hear this?

Till My Heart Stops

Written By: Glass Intrepid

You want everything, that’s inside of me.
Now you’re suffering cause I’ve messed up again
Flowers for the love, past I’m dreaming of
Sorry is not enough. I can’t go back to then
So what is left to say?

I want you back till my heart stops beating
Till my heart stops bleeding for you
So I can love again
I want you back till my heart stops beating
Till my heart stops bleeding for you
So I can love again

Never jealousy, just curiosity
Someone to believe is all you want from me
Time is running out. I scream and shout
Can we work it out and set this sorrow free?
So what is left to say?

I want you back till my heart stops beating
Till my heart stops bleeding for you
So I can love again
I want you back till my heart stops beating
Till my heart stops bleeding for you
So I can love again

You said that you would die for love
Why was it not enough?
You said that you would die for love
So what did I do wrong?
Why was it not enough?

I want you back till my heart stops beating
Till my heart stops bleeding for you
So I can love again
I want you back till my heart stops beating
Till my heart stops bleeding for you
So I can love again
Till my heart stops, Till my heart stops, Till my heart stops, Till my heart stops bleeding for you.
You said that you would die for love. Why was it not enough? You said that you would die for love.

The Victim

Written By: Glass Intrepid

Did you take your medicine? Did you pop your pills again?
When you’re living in the spotlight do you burn your skin?
All is fair in love and war, so what are you fighting for?
You have everything you wanted but you’re wanting more

Face it now, there’s no one who believes you

Woah, you’re not the only victim
Woah, you’re not you’re not
Woah, you’re not the only victim
Woah, you are not the victim now

When the pity’s not enough and you’re feeling so unloved
Think of all the people that you hurt to rise above
The attentions getting old and you think you’re in control
But revenge is a dish that you’ll find is best served cold

Face it now, there’s no one who believes you

Woah, you’re not the only victim
Woah, you’re not you’re not
Woah, you’re not the only victim
Woah, you are not the victim now
Let’s go

You are not the victim. You are not the victim now

Woah, woah…

Woah, you’re not the only victim
Woah, you’re not you’re not
Woah, you’re not the only victim
Woah, you are not the victim now
(Face it now)
You are not the victim now
(Face it now)
You are not the victim now
