Lyrics

Say It

Written By: Enright/Fury/DeBoer/Southworth

You seem so cozy in your holes
the water's warm but air is cold

Come what may this is home
all is sharp and cool and chrome

But if you listen close and you pay attention
You can hear the words that I'm not saying

If there's something you're not saying, won't you say it?
Baby this is not a game and we're not playing!

Blue kids dropping from the stars
To break the rules and break your hearts

And if your jacket has its packed up wings inside
Then everyone one we see is secretly alive

If there's something you're not saying, won't you say it?
Baby this is not a game and we're not playing!

More Than A Man

Written By: Enright, Fury, DeBoer, Southworth

Man
Super Soldier
Man
Cold and hard and mean
Man
Sold your soul ya just so you can feel like a real...

Man
Rude and rough ya
Man
Don't nobody push you around
Man
Are you through acting tough? 'Cause it's time to hit the ground just like a....

Perfect soldier
Made to measure
Trade your love for guilty pleasure
Drop you guns and grab your feathers!

Damn!
I think I can
Be what I am
More than a Man

Can
You understand
My masterplan?
More than a Man Man Man Man

Man
Will you fight and
Stand
your ground or run and hide?
Man
Will you cry when it's time for you to die just like a...

Perfect soldier
Made to measure
Trade your love for guilty pleasure
Drop your guns and grab your feathers!

Damn!
I think I can
Be what I am
More than a Man

Can
You understand
My masterplan?
More than a Man Man Man Man

We Are Stars

Written By: Enright, Fury, DeBoer, Southworth

We roll with the punches
Push comes to shove
Like the hand in the glove
We're the Army of Love

We've got fire inside us
Family behind us
The liars they try
but they'll never divide us

We're all in this together
No one has to fall apart
No one is lonely
Freedom is forever
Scream it from inside your heart
"We are Stars!"

Fear is a poison
Freedom's our choice
If a million girls and boys
raise their voice

We can shatter the silence
End all the violence
This world is a tribe
and it's our time to shine 'cause...

We're all in this together
No one has to fall apart
and no one is lonely
Freedom is forever
Scream it from inside your heart
"We are Stars!"

Maria

Written By: Enright, Fury, DeBoer, Southworth

Every night
I stare up above at the sky
makes me scared Mary swears it's alright
she will lay here beside me tonight

What's she got?
took her child and they made him a god
took two rights and they made it all wrong
sold their souls and their sons
for a song
for a song?

Maria
we gotta make 'em change Maria
because they're all insane from the pain
and they'll say you're a saint
for what you have done

Mary sings
hear the beauty and brightness she brings
took her lover and made him a king
so that even the memory stings

It's a lie
they pretend and they don't even try
they're so angry they hide from the light
but the flames from her heart burnt their eyes
open wide!

Maria
we gotta make 'em change Maria
because they're all insane from the pain
and they'll say you're a saint
for what you have done

Every night
I stare up above at the sky
makes me scared Mary swears it's alright

Beautiful

Written By: Enright, Fury, DeBoer, Southworth

You are the one
You shine like the sun
You're beautiful

It seems to me
Everyone can see
You're beautiful

Even when you're sad
Especially when you're mad
You're beautiful

How do I know?
I see into your soul
You're beautiful

When will they know?
When will it show?
When will they know?

Soon now
You're gonna want them to know
You're gonna want it to show
You're beautiful

She never hides
And she never lies
She's beautiful

She knows who you are
She shines like a star
She's beautiful

Just be yourself
And nobody else
You're beautiful

Don't be ashamed
And don't be afraid
You're beautiful

When will they know?
When will it show?
When will they know?

Soon Now
You're gonna want them to know
You're gonna want it to show
You're beautiful

When you walk like that and talk like that

You're beautiful
