Track Name: Friday Afternoon
do you work to live
or live to work
you like your colleague
but your boss is a jerk

those dreary hours when do they go by
from Monday to Friday you just want to die

so you get alive Friday afternoon
you work all day all night
and finally it feels right
Friday afternoon

you work so hard
but you don't get paid
enough to feel content

those dreary hours when do they go by
from Monday to Friday you just want to die

so you get alive Friday afternoon
you work all day all night
and finally it feels right
Friday afternoon
Track Name: Starting All Over
I don't know where you are now
I still whisper your name
Remember the good times
Forget the fake lies

It's never too late
To start again
Come out of the dark
To be my friend

Starting all over
Starting all over again
Let's start all over
Let's start all over again

Starting all over
Starting all over again
Let's start all over
Let's start all over again, again, again
Track Name: (Living In A) Fairy Tale
you complain a lot
but you can't
change the world
with a magic want

the info bubble
makes you think you're right
no contradictions
in sight

you are living in a fairy tale
you are living in a fairy tale
it ain't real

living on a cloud
high above the ground
keeps you floating
you are spellbound

you are living in a fairy tale
you are living in a fairy tale
it ain't real

nothing will be better
when you open your eyes
you better keep dreaming
to stay satisfied

you are living in a fairy tale
you are living in a fairy tale
it ain't real
