Lyrics

Looking Out For Number One

Written By: Alex Mills

I`m gonna quit this life , it aint kind
Got it clear inside my mind, what i want i just can`t see
I`ve been ready to receive for forever so it seems, I want what is coming to me
For too long I`ve been held down broken beaten messed around
The time has come to set me free
Always putting others first only gets me further from everything I wanted to be

I gotta run before its too late
Into the setting sun I`ll be gone chasing the bad times away
I`m leaving tonight, I`m savin` my life
Mediocrity is killing me so before my lifes said and done
I`ll be looking out for number one.

I became to change my ways, sick of always being afraid
Forced to be baptised in fire
I got here because of hurt, I`d forgotten my own worth
Somehow my hope is still alive
But I drive myself so insane, pushing all my love away
Regurgitating whats inside
From this noose I will escape, I`ve just gotta get away
I`m leaving all this shit behind.

I gotta run before its too late
Into the setting sun I`ll be gone chasing the bad times away
I`m leaving tonight, I`m savin` my life
Mediocrity is killing me so before my lifes said and done
I`ll be looking out for number one.

Jumpin In The Grave

Written By: Alex Mills

Punching in and out it`s groundhog day
I woke up again to I got you babe
On the way to work this morning the heavens started to open, the rain it came pouring, pouring down
Pointless looking to the weekend cause there aint no fun in this shitty town.

My car won`t start it`s turned to rust
Just like my dreams have turned to dust

`Cause i`ve found out if it`s sugar coated it`s easier to swallow
From lies shy away
In a world brought up to believe we`d all be big stars
Money women fast cars
I will be at this rate
Jumpin` in that grave

I called my mother just the other day
Different day but same old story
Another family member dyin` the doctor he is tryin` to keep them away from the pearly gates
Better get myself regularly checked `cause they say it could be hereditory

No need to worry `bout it it`s all the same
Everybodys heading the same way

`Cause i`ve found out if it`s sugar coated it`s easier to swallow
From lies shy away
In a world brought up to believe we`d all be big stars
Money women fast cars
I will be at this rate
Jumpin` in that grave

With some cash i`d buy some time
But cash and time no they just aint mine
I aint like no Bill Murray
`Cause in the movies he get laid

`Cause i`ve found out if it`s sugar coated it`s easier to swallow
From lies shy away
In a world brought up to believe we`d all be big stars
Money women fast cars
I will be at this rate
Jumpin` in that grave

Not What You See

Written By: Alex Mills

Come lend me your ears, in you let me confide
Would you like to hear a secret now , do you know whats on my mind
Maybe I just need a moment, so unsure where to begin
Hesitant to set these wheels in motion, get closer
Come on in.

I just merge into the background, where the followers belong
In your ambience is where i exist then I don`t exist at all
All the moments when you`re near are the best of the whole damn day
Then you`re gone and all i`m left to hold is the memory of your face.

Whoa I will show gotta let you know
Your grace entices me
It won`t rest i`ll confess put it to the test
You`re the only one I see
There is so much hurt in this big bad world, you don`t have to go it alone
If you`re on your own without anyone that someone I could be
I`m not what you see.

When we first crossed paths, had your best dress on that day
Yeah you filled my head with all of these thoughts they just wont go away
If my senses don`t mislead me, were you suggesting secretly
Hard to read into the moment was it just momentery.

Whoa I will show gotta let you know
Your grace entices me
It won`t rest i`ll confess put it to the test
You`re the only one I see
There is so much hurt in this big bad world, you don`t have to go it alone
If you`re on your own without anyone that someone I could be
I`m not what you see.
