Change

Album: Space Invader (2014)
  • You find your life is not quite like what you thought it would be
    And you don't know that you can hold the world in your hand
    And all the people surrounding you just want what you have
    So you've been weak up until now that your soul has been stripped
    Naked in the sand

    Pick yourself up, and change
    Pick yourself up and change

    You couldn't see
    Their faces as they were calling your name
    Your head was spinning
    From the laughter of strangers to you
    You turned around,
    Your head in your hands as confusion sets in
    Was just madness you felt,
    No more hearts will be broken
    I give you my command

    Pick yourself up, and change
    Pick yourself up and change

    Pick yourself up, and change
    Pick yourself up

    All the people around were dying for pleasure,
    Not holding your hand, your hand, your hand
    You see my sadness,
    And pain but all about you thought was the ride,
    The ride, the ride

    You took for granted,
    My treasures were given to unworthy hands
    You lived a lie,
    And you still want pity from me
    I lost my patience,
    It's the changing that counts, now open your eyes
    Your time is over now,
    No more wishes to grant your unsavory demands

    Pick yourself up, and change
    Pick yourself up and change
    C'mon, pick yourself up, and change
    Pick yourself up and change
    Pick yourself up and change
