Hubris Wear a crown Nose up in the air On high Looking down Never seem to care Blaming Everyone ‘Cause everyone’s to blame Trying To play it off But we can see your pain That feeling of emptiness Like you’ll always be alone Let go Open up Leave the past behind You’ve gotta change your state of mind You’ve gotta let go of your pride You’ve gotta change your state of mind You’ve gotta let go of your pride Hubris Know it all Push everyone away Shutdown Fade to black Hiding feelings made of clay Lash out Strike em’ down When you don’t get your way Turn down Mute the noise It doesn’t matter what they say Trying to stay on top As the world drags you down Let go Open up Leave the past behind You’ve gotta change your state of mind You’ve gotta let go of your pride You’ve gotta change your state of mind You’ve gotta let go of your pride You’ve gotta let go of your pride, open up your heart Show us what you’re like inside, we want to know who you are You’ve gotta let go of your pride, open up your heart Show us what you’re like inside, we want to know who you are You’ve gotta let go of your pride You’ve gotta change your state of mind You’ve gotta let go of your pride You’ve gotta change your state of mind You’ve gotta let go of your pride

My heart is open and I feel so good inside I’ve put the past behind me and I feel so satisfied I could smile forever JOY! And dance all night JOY! I wanna sing a happy song JOY! Sing until morning light JOY! My head is up in the clouds, my spirit is truly free Joy has set me free I’m feeling joy inside, because I’m where I’m meant to be I feel like singing out loud, I feel like dancing in the street I feel on top of the world because I’m dancing to a brand new beat I could smile forever JOY! And dance all night JOY! I wanna sing a happy song JOY! Sing until morning light JOY! My head is up in the clouds, my spirit is truly free Joy has set me free I’m feeling joy inside, because I’m where I’m meant to be Joy has set me free My head is up in the clouds, my spirit is truly free Joy has set me free I’m feeling joy inside, because I’m where I’m meant to be Joy has set me free Joy has set me free Joy has set me free Joy has set me free

I’m looking at you You’re looking at me But I don’t know what these looks even mean Do you like me Or are we just friends I want ask you how this night should end But if I ask you Is that too direct Maybe I should leave a kiss on your neck Should I ask you if I can come in I don’t know how this night should end Like a deer in headlights I don’t know how to do this right I’m so awkward Overanalyzing I’m so awkward I’m looking at you You’re looking at me But I don’t know how I’m supposed to be Maybe you want me to make a move But I don’t want you to disapprove I don’t know if the time is right Or if it’s time to say goodnight If I tell you I that I’m into you I don’t know what you’re going to do I’m weak in the knees My hands clam up and my fingers freeze I’m so awkward Overanalyzing I’m so awkward I’m so into you But I don’t know what I’m supposed to do I’m so awkward Overanalyzing I’m so awkward

His mind is warped and his soul is dark He’s a powder keg and you’re the spark He’s had enough So he’s breaking your stuff He wants to break your heart into little pieces And make you feel what it’s like be to defeated What makes want to him act this way? He’s gonna break break break break He’s gonna break break His anger explodes He’s gonna break break break break He’s gonna break break His anger explodes He needs to feel like he’s the king He won’t hear your voice When his blood is boiling His mama was mean His dad was obscene And now he’s gonna take it out on you Because it’s what he was taught how to do I hope that you can run away He’s gonna break break break break He’s gonna break break His anger explodes He’s gonna break break break break He’s gonna break break His anger explodes His mind isn’t clear When he’s driven by fear And you just happen to be the closest target His fists will fly and you can’t stop it He always wants to have his way He’s gonna break break break break He’s gonna break break His anger explodes He’s gonna break break break break He’s gonna break break His anger explodes
