BATTERIES ARE NOT INCLUDED (2012)

  • TO BE
    • (words and music by WakeUpCall)
      
      I knew a man
      His name was James
      Everybody thought he was just another fool
      He lost his way watching the world
      He always said:
      Life is simple, people are complicated
      And damn he was so right
      So one day he came to me and he said
      I want to find my way again
      I want to see what happen
      To live life and not just stare at the sky
      So one day, maybe, I could say
      
      I’m what I wanted to be
      Am I What I wanted to be?
      
      It was a rainy night
      And I’ve seen my future
      It was there, waiting for me
      I was so scared
      Cuz everything was already planned
      Nothing to find
      And nothing to change
      All my life I’ve been here in silence
      But now you listen to me
      
      I’m what I wanted to be
      Am I What I wanted to be?
      Tonight, I’m here,
      thinking about you
      Our dreams our hopes
      What we were and what we are
      No I don’t think it’ll end tonight
      
      Are you what you wanted to be
      I’m tired of staring at the sky
      Are you what you wanted to be
      I’m tired of staring at the sky
      
      I’m what I wanted to be
      Am I what I wanted to be?
      Tonight, I’m here,
      thinking about you
      Our dreams our hopes
      What we were and what we are
      No I don’t think it’ll end tonight
      Are you what you wanted to be
      I’m tired of staring at the sky
      Are you what you wanted to be
      I’m tired of staring at the sky
  • KILL YOUR DREAMS
    • (words and music by WakeUpCall)
      
      Like a bad guy from a movie
      You are meant to loose again
      But you try try
      And you won’t see me crying crying
      So just don’t forget
      And don’t take me for granted
      
      I’m gonna drink drink drink
      So I’m gonna kill my dreams
      Before they kill me
      I’m not gonna sleep
      I’m not gonna dream
      Kill your dreams before they kill you
      
      I’ve fallen a hundred times
      And everytime is harder
      I’ve fallen a hundred times
      To get up one more time
      And No – you can’t buy freedom
      And No – you can’t kill my soul
      And No – you can’t take my faith
      
      I’m gonna drink drink drink
      So I’m gonna kill my dreams
      Before they kill me
      I’m not gonna sleep
      I’m not gonna dream
      Kill your dreams before they kill you
  • CHRISTINE
    • (words and music by WakeUpCall)
      
      Don’t waste your time
      Time to escape
      So crash your window
      And leave the pain
      The painful words she said to you
      A mighty yell echoes in you
      
      Now close your eyes and feel the wind
      There’s a new life just out there
      And it’s waiting only for you
      She will be a memory
      
      You’re wrong my dear, it’s not a shame to cry
      You’re wrong my dear be free to fly
      
      Christine don’t wanna be anyone
      She’s never been herself
      Love in her mind
      So pure inside
      Christine don’t throw your life away
      
      You’re too afraid, afraid to fail
      But you’re finally free
      So now be free, be free to fail
      Cuz there ain’t no easy way
      
      You follow your dreams
      And the world put you on your knees
      You will try – you will cry
      You will smile – you’ll be blind
      Fall in love – fall to the floor
      And rise again
      
      You’re wrong my dear, it’s not a shame to cry
      You’re wrong my dear be free to fly
      
      Christine don’t wanna be anyone
      She’s never been herself
      Love in her mind
      So pure inside
      Christine don’t throw your life away

      I’m not the one
      I’m just another one
      Looking for my slice of pie
      In the morning I’ll be gone
      I don’t wanna see you cry for me
      
      If they want me to be good
      I’ll be bad
      If they want me to be bad
      I’ll be good
      No there’s nothing you can do
      It’s just the way I am
      And guess what
      Batteries Are Not Included
      Batteries Are Not Included
      Batteries Are Not Included
      
      These voices inside my head
      Maybe it’s time to get back
      I hate you because I love you
      
      If they want me to be good
      I’ll be bad
      If they want me to be bad
      I’ll be good
      No there’s nothing you can do
      It’s just the way I am
      And guess what

      Batteries Are Not Included
      
      Can you hear it?
      My heart’s still beating
      I can die tonight swearing
      Every breath I breathe
      Was worth it
      Every word I said
      And the ones I should’ve said
      All the smiles and pain I cause you
      Now I left the fear behind
      I’m not seeking forgiveness
      There’ll be no compromise
      This is who I really am
      This is who I am
  • SMILE
    • (words and music by WakeUpCall)
      
      Looking back wondering how you could 
      take all the wrong roads
      What happened to your dreams
      You wanted to dance in the pouring rain
      Why is everything so wrong
      All the things you should have said
      All the things you should have done
      Thousand of words without a meaning
      
      Smile, don’t cry
      Cuz you know the world is a better place
      When I see you smile
      And there’s still time to change
      
      I know life wasn’t good and right with you
      It seems like there’s no place for you
      But I’ve seen your strength in you eyes
      I see it everyday
      I believe in you
      
      Smile, don’t cry
      Cuz you know the world is a better place
      When I see you smile
      And there’s still time to breath
      To live, to love, to get old
      
      Smile, don’t cry
      Cuz you know the world is a better place
      When I see you smile
      And there’s still time
      Time to breath, time to live
      Time to love, time to change
      You grow up, get old, things change
      Just don’t forget about me
  • JUST WANNA DANCE
    • (words and music by WakeUpCall)
      
      Humanity
      What a shame
      No time for love
      Back to the jungle
      Feel the smell
      Smell the fear
      War, lies, people die
      Fuck, it’s Friday night
      Thank God – time to forget
      
      People don’t care
      Just wanna dance
      
      Can’t close my eyes
      Can’t eat – can’t sleep
      Won’t you shut your mouth for some money?
      Turn off the Tv – and on your brain
      It’s easy to live in a pink world
      Easy to close one eye and keep smiling
      Maybe I’ll be rich and stupid
      
      War, lies, people die
      Fuck, it’s Friday night
      Thank God – time to forget
      
      People don’t care
      Just wanna dance
      I don’t wanna see
      I’m in the V.I.P.
      
      War, lies, people die
      Fuck, it’s Friday night
      Thank God – time to forget
      (this world sucks)
      All for one
      The One is me
      I take everything
      And give you nothing
      
      Dance
      People don’t care
      I don’t wanna see
      I’m in the V.I.P.
      People don’t care
      Just wanna dance
      Just wanna dance
  • LET YOU GO
    • (words and music by WakeUpCall)
      
      Just like a thorn in my heart
      I can’t breath, I can’t love
      I had a perfect life
      You were not supposed to change the rules
      
      And now I hate you
      But I want you
      
      But I can’t fall in love with you
      Not today
      Not tomorrow
      Is this the way our story should end?
      I don’t want to let you go
      
      I’ve tasted your lips
      And it wasn’t enough
      I couldn’t stop kissing you
      I want you and I want more
      But baby I’m sorry
      
      Cuz I can’t fall in love with you
      Not today
      Not tomorrow
      Is this the way our story should end?
      I don’t want to let you go
      
      Why did you kiss me?
      Now I can’t stop thinking about you
      You kiss and runaway
      And now I don’t know what to do
      
      No I can’t fall in love with you
      Not today
      Not tomorrow
      Is this the way our story should end?
      I don’t want to let you go
      I need one more kiss
      But I can’t fall in love with you today
      Not today, Not tomorrow
  • Asshole
    • (words and music by WakeUpCall)
      
      Today I say no way
      I packed my suitcase and I’m out of this goddamn place
      Luck couldn’t find my way
      So I’m gonna look for it in another place
      The glass is half full, the glass is half empty
      I don’t even know what it means
      There are too many things I wanna do
      But I don’t wanna die old
      
      Today I don’t care about love, love, love
      Today I don’t care about rules, rules
      A little bit a sinner
      A little bit a saint
      Today – No way
      I’m just an asshole
      
      I ain’t got time to dream
      I ain’t got time to waste
      I really just wanna live
      I know I’m on my way
      Even if I don’t know where it leads me
      
      Today I don’t care about love, love, love
      Today I don’t care about rules, rules
      A little bit a sinner
      A little bit a saint
      Today – No way
      
      This world is too fast
      Don’t wanna be the last
      Can you stand your ground?
      Now take a look around
      Can’t you see it?
      Can’t you feel it?
      There’s no place for weakness
      
      I don’t care about love, I don’t care about rules
      I’m a sinner or am I saint?
      I don’t care about love, I don’t care about rules
      
      Today I don’t care about love, love, love
      Today I don’t care about rules, rules
      A little bit a sinner
      A little bit a saint
      Today – No way
      I’m just an asshole
  • ONE DAY
    • (God & The Devil…a different tale)
      
      (words and music by WakeUpCall)
      
      I wanna tell you my story
      Or at least my side of it
      I don’t care if you believe me
      My destiny was signed long time ago
      I haven’t always been this way
      I haven’t always been the bad guy
      There was a time when my smile
      Didn’t hide any lies or tricks
      
      We were more than brothers
      We were both in love
      He took her and heaven
      I get fire and pain
      
      One day I’ll get what I deserve
      One day I’ll pay for my mistakes
      One day, one day
      One day
      
      So I had to go
      Couldn’t even say goodbye
      I didn’t see her anymore
      My friends were not friends anymore
      Suddenly I was the bad one
      My life changed and so did I
      
      One day I’ll get what I deserve
      One day I’ll pay for my mistakes
      One day, one day
      One day
      
      I wanna tell you my story
      Or at least my side of it
      
      One day I’ll get what I deserve
      One day I’ll pay for my mistakes
      One day
      
      Hopes were prayers
      And prayers are now dust
      One day I’ll get what I deserve
      I’ve got too many prayers
      And no-one to pray
      One day I’ll pay for my mistakes
      One day, one day
      One day
  • NOT LIKE YOU
    • (words and music by WakeUpCall)
      
      Hey you, yeah you
      Staring at me
      You wear designer suit
      and you think you know it all
      Don’t you like my hair?
      Turn your head around
      My music is trouble cuz it’s loud
      And tells the truth
      
      That’s right
      
      I’m your worst nightmare
      If the devil and god were the same person
      They would be me
      
      Hey you, yeah you
      That look so pretty
      With those fake smiles
      And all your pretty dresses
      You look like a doll
      and you think you know it all
      but there’s something more
      your tv can’t explain to you
      
      That’s right
      
      I’m your worst nightmare
      If the devil and god were the same person
      They would be me
      Don’t look at me
      I’m not like you
      So you better stay away from me
  • RIGHT HERE
    • (words and music by WakeUpCall)
      
      There will be a day
      When everything will be ok
      Luck will knock on my door
      And I won’t be worried anymore
      I know you want me to smile
      But my face will be marked forever
      Nothing will be as before
      But I will never leave you alone
      
      What have I gotta do
      What have I gotta say
      How can I go on
      When everything’s wrong
      And I hit the floor
      Look at me now hey
      I’m still right here
      
      Is this a life
      Or a fight to survive
      Day by day step by step
      Don’t worry about the rest
      I can’t be honest
      I can’t look after everyone
      One day I’ll pay for my sins
      But now let me live
      
      What have I gotta do
      What have I gotta say
      How can I go on
      When everything’s wrong
      And I hit the floor
      Look at me now hey
      I’m still right here
