Track Name: Soundproof
Call me a loser
Call me a freak
Call me a delusional mess
Your words can't mess around with me

Call me a wannabe
Call me a dick
Call me whatever you want
Your words will never ever stick

Because... I-I-I can't hear you, I-I-I can't hear you, no. (x4)

Say that I'm ugly
Say that I suck
Tell me I'll never be good enough
You know I don't give a fuck

Abuse me verbally
Give it your best shot
It's gon' take more than words
Much more to try to mess me up

Because... I-I-I can't hear you, I-I-I can't hear you, no. (x4)

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh (x2)

I can't hear you, I can only see your lips move
That's because as of today I am soundproof

No, no, no, no, no, for you I'm never gonna change (x2)

I can't hear you
I can't hear you
I can't hear you
You're not in my frequency range

I can't hear you, I can only see your lips move
That's because as of today I am soundproof
(x2)

I am soundproof
Track Name: Music Therapy
Time is ticking, ticking, ticking (tick, tick, tick, tick)
Time is ticking, ticking, ticking (tick, tick, tick, tick)

Music therapy is just what you need
Music therapy is just what you need

It's dangerous when you try to ignore the symptoms
You need a diagnosis now
You need a dose of a good bass line and a kick drum
That will make you wanna stomp the ground

Surrender to the rapture, go into a state of trance
Frame freezing the moment, just let all your problems glance
Time is ticking, ticking, ticking
You can't turn it back
Time is ticking, ticking
Is your brain under attack?

The grief unspoken in your heart, don't you let it expand
It will turn to poison, swallow you up like quicksand
Time is ticking, ticking, ticking
You can't turn it back
Time is ticking, ticking, ticking
Are you on the right track?

Hypnotized - come on, tell me everything
You feel inside - the cure is not in a pill
You're paralyzed - here's my prescription: a conscious decision
to dance tonight

(Music therapy is just what you need
Music therapy)

Let yourself go, embrace audio, it's so radical
Blow up your stereo, move to the tempo, it's beyond physical

Music therapy is just what you need
Your mind & body are a symphony
Music therapy is just what you need
To make sure they both play in harmony

From your head & through your heart, let all the sound waves crash
The beat is now your master, take this final chance to dance
Time is ticking, ticking, ticking
You can't turn it back
Time is ticking, ticking, ticking
Are you on the right track?

Hypnotized - come on, tell me everything
You feel inside - the cure is not in a pill
You're paralyzed - here's my prescription: a conscious decision
to dance tonight

(Music therapy is just what you need
Music therapy)

Come on, come on, come on, come on, let the music set you free
Come on, come on, come on, come on, you need some music therapy
Come on, come on, come on, come on, let the music set you free
Come on, come on, come on, come on, you need some music therapy

Time is ticking, ticking, ticking (tick, tick, tick, tick)
Time is ticking, ticking, ticking (tick, tick, tick, tick)
Track Name: Escape the Box
Verse 1:
If you're tired of regulations
If you're tired of stereotypes
If you're tired of being categorized
Escape the box (x2)

If you wanna be yourself
but they locked you in a cell
If you wanna break free
Escape the box (x2)

Pre-chorus:
Don't let anybody tell you just who you should be
Society's molds limit creativity
It's a gigantic human photocopying machine
So wash off the ink and be your own entity

Chorus:
If you wanna be different you don't need permission
They don't have to see it, just share your vision
Take a risk, take a chance, just jump the fence
Don't be a prisoner, don't be a victim
Escape the box (x4)

Verse 2:
On you they wanna put a label
Cause they're mentally unstable
No, they won't ever be able to
Escape the box (x2)

No, there ain't no rulebook
That tells you how to think or how to look
So let your mind run free
Escape the box (x2)

Pre-chorus:
Don't let anybody tell you just who you should be
Society's molds limit creativity
It's a gigantic human photocopying machine
So wash off the ink and be your own entity

Chorus:
If you wanna be different you don't need permission
They don't have to see it, just share your vision
Take a risk, take a chance, just jump the fence
Don't be a prisoner, don't be a victim
Escape the box (x4)

Bridge:
Love is my religion
To my heart I will listen
I won't make my decisions based on your inhibitions
Don't be a chicken
If they don't like you, good riddance
Don't be afraid to go the distance, let your mind run free
Baby when you see that it's them who lack security
You'll love your individuality
Escape the box (x2)

Chorus:
If you wanna be different you don't need permission
They don't have to see it, just share your vision
Take a risk, take a chance, just jump the fence
Don't be a prisoner, don't be a victim
Escape the box (x4)
Track Name: Leave Me Alone
Verse 1:
I know a place where dreams come true
I go there everyday to be with you
I jump into a pool of my fantasies, visions, wishes, visual delicacies
Only to be waken by reality
It hits me so hard on the head, I can't comprehend

Chorus:
I wanna be left alone
Don't bother me when I'm in my comfort zone
The world's so hard to take on
When you can't find a place where you belong
I'm a freak, I'm a weirdo, call me what you like
But I know who I am and what I want from this life
I wanna be left alone
Leave me alone

Verse 2:
I ran away from all my fears
They always haunted me through all of these years
But now I'm gonna chase them all away
I'm no longer afraid from what awaits me
The future is unknown, but what I know is that I'm always gonna be
King of my destiny

Chorus:
I wanna be left alone
Don't bother me when I'm in my comfort zone
The world's so hard to take on
When you can't find a place where you belong
I'm a freak, I'm a weirdo, call me what you like
But I know who I am and what I want from this life
I wanna be left alone
Leave me alone

Spoken Word:
Every now and then I dream
I escape to a world where I am king
A world with no hatred, no limitations, no judgment and no circumstance to decide my destiny
A safe sanctuary, temporary bliss
The only difference between you and me is that I'm not afraid to dream
I will stay here until my world is no longer a fantasy

Chorus:
I wanna be left alone
Don't bother me when I'm in my comfort zone
The world's so hard to take on
When you can't find a place where you belong
I'm a freak, I'm a weirdo, call me what you like
But I know who I am and what I want from this life
I wanna be left alone
Leave me alone

I'm a freak, I'm a weirdo, call me what you like
But I know who I am and what I want from this life
Track Name: Borders
Verse 1:
Whenever I hear that song on the radio
I know that you and I belong
Memories flow like a glass of wine
Poured in my mind
A toast to our good times... Woah oh oh

Chorus:
This love is invincible, it goes beyond borders (Woah)
And your love gives me wings to fly, it goes beyond borders (Woah)
From London to Paris, or from Milan to LA
No matter the distance, I know that we'll be ok
cause this love is invincible, it goes beyond borders (Woah)

Verse 2:
Whenever I see your name on my cell phone
A smile is drawn upon my face
Can't wait to pick up and say "hello"
I gotta let you know just how I miss you so... Woah oh oh

Chorus:
This love is invincible, it goes beyond borders (Woah)
And your love gives me wings to fly, it goes beyond borders (Woah)
From London to Paris, or from Milan to LA
No matter the distance, I know that we'll be ok
cause this love is invincible, it goes beyond borders (Woah)

Bridge:
My loneliness is killing me in this city
I feel like I am losing my sanity
I wanna be with the ones I love, it's a pity
but the remedy is inside of me
and it comforts me to know that the miles between us
No, they can't defeat us cause...

Chorus:
This love is invincible, it goes beyond borders (Woah)
And your love gives me wings to fly, it goes beyond borders (Woah)
From London to Paris, or from Milan to LA
No matter the distance, I know that we'll be ok
cause this love is invincible, it goes beyond borders (Woah)
Track Name: Super Trouper
Verse 1:
You can tie me up
You can lock me up
But you can never control me

And I won't ever stop
No, I won't ever stop
Trying to chase my own destiny

Because I believe
Yes, I believe
that there will be a better day for me

I know I'll achieve
Yes, I'll achieve
All my goals, all my hopes and all my dreams

Chorus:
You can try to tear me down
You can take away my God-given freedom
But I've got no choice, it's not in my hands
No, you don't understand (No, you don't understand)
To keep on fighting is in my nature
Let me make it more clear
Let me paint a picture
I've got a spirit made of titanium
I'm a super trouper, this is my anthem

Hook:
(Super super trouper trouper) This is my anthem
(Super super trouper trouper) I won't be a victim
(Super super trouper trouper) No matter the outcome
(Super super trouper trouper) So turn up the volume

Verse 2:
This is not the end
No, it can't be the end
This is just the beginning

And I won't pretend
and I can't pretend
that my faith hasn't been shaken

There have been times I thought I couldn't survive
I didn't know if I had the strength

But I've worked so hard & I've come a long way
to give up on myself today

Chorus:
You can try to tear me down
You can take away my God-given freedom
But I've got no choice, it's not in my hands
No, you don't understand (No, you don't understand)
To keep on fighting is in my nature
Let me make it more clear
Let me paint a picture
I've got a spirit made of titanium
I'm a super trouper, this is my anthem

Hook:
(Super super trouper trouper) This is my anthem
(Super super trouper trouper) I won't be a victim
(Super super trouper trouper) No matter the outcome
(Super super trouper trouper) So turn up the volume

Bridge:
I don't care if I'm 25
It's never too late to start living my life
I have no control over where I was born
or why I belong to my so-called "home"
Surprise, surprise! I never fit in
I always felt like an alien
So long, so long to discrimination
I deserve a big break and standing ovations
I got the talent to back it up, and ambition & consistency to take me up
I'm not big headed, I'm sick of being denied of my right to try

Chorus:
You can try to tear me down
You can take away my God-given freedom
But I've got no choice, it's not in my hands
No, you don't understand (No, you don't understand)
To keep on fighting is in my nature
Let me make it more clear
Let me paint a picture
I've got a spirit made of titanium
I'm a super trouper, this is my anthem

Hook:
(Super super trouper trouper) This is my anthem
(Super super trouper trouper) I won't be a victim
(Super super trouper trouper) No matter the outcome
(Super super trouper trouper) This is my anthem
