"Brand-new"

Forget the unwritten pages
Have decided to start over
With a new plot
With a new main character

She had gone through a lot of pain
She had not earned since then
She had decided to keep her head high
And never bow to no one

All she wanted was a brand-new kind of life
All she wanted was to stay away from the dark
All she wanted was to stop hiding from the universe
All she wanted was to be seen and to be reminded

Forget everything you have heard of her
She is not the same, she decided to play the game
She was losing everything little by little
She was falling down

Once her weakness became her strength
She could finally fend for herself
Her lost road was finally found
The doors were finally opened

A brand-new life to a brand-new girl
She lost some battles but she outgrew them
She became who she wanted to be
Brand-new

"Oblivion"

Broken bones and blood spilled
Have forgotten how to breathe
Eyes wide shut
Fell into oblivion

Surviving in the past
Watching over those who step in the ground
Those who last
Whilst Earth goes round and round

Yearned to be seen
Yearned to be heard
Yearned to be touched
Hasn't got any luck
While living and breathing

A blind pain no one could see
Was shut out before release a word
Was unwanted before show that is worth it
Was gone before was born

All those things yearned for
All those things hoped for
Turned into nothing
The spirit has vanished

"Selfie"

Ratings are getting higher
Every time you take a picture
Of yourself
Doing whatever you are doing
Everybody seems to want a piece of you

Sharing all your secrets
Sharing your daily routine
Nothing is new anymore
Everybody knows it
It is an addiction

You can live without it
You will be fine
It is a Narcissus war
You just seem not to get out

This is how you think they will praise you
How about living in a flesh and bone world?
Since life is full of ups and downs
Sometimes it is better to stay hidden

Whatever is going on
No one needs to know
But now it has lost control

Missing something you needed
Things had certain meaning
Now it seems it is disposable
Memories slowly fade away
When they should stay forever

It will deceive you
You have been warned
Smile!

"Fireworks"

Maybe we need a change
Maybe we need to make a change
Or everything will stay the same
Do you want to stand still?

Then, we wonder
"Why all those fireworks and resolutions
To everything stay the same?"
We dream of the new
But we do not make it true

Blow what is done away
And pray for better days
Make a move
Make it on your own way
Celebrate but do not forget

It may be a new tomorrow
Do not resent yesterday
Future, present and past tense
All we know is: life goes on

"Innocence"

Dear Innocence,
Were you washed away with the pouring rain?
Dear Innocence,
Is it too late to make amends?
Dear Innocence,
How come everything ended up so bad?

As if two different worlds collide
As if everything that is good disappear
As if every dream was in vain
It is a shame

Dear Innocence,
Why were you lost in pain?
Dear Innocence,
Is there anything left to blame?
Dear Innocence,
How come everything ended up so empty?

It is a never-ending war
Leaving things we adore
Still, hope is not to be ignored
But it is not the past we are looking for

Dear Innocence,
Do not leave us so soon...
