about

Life's No Time Machine is a collection of songs written by Define Our Pride back in 2011. Reforming in 2013 after a brief hiatus, we decided to record and release our songs prior to the break. Life's No Time Machine represents angst, hope, desires, and dreams with fast upbeat energy. This is the first set of songs written by us, and we plan to have better new material going deeper into ourselves and ideals in the future.

Track Name: For A Better Tomorrow
We live our days without sorrow
So we’re not left behind
We sing for a better tomorrow
To find a way to define our pride
Track Name: Absent Notion
Every passing thought that has slipped my mind
Holds a little piece of you inside
That little piece is starting to die
We need some hope to keep this flame up high
And the rain is starting to pour
We scream no more no more

You’ve gotta tell me
Is there something more
To live in misery
Because I can’t ignore
This twisted destiny
We’ve got to settle the score
Before we lose it all

Come on let’s go
And break the chains that are holding me
Come on let’s go
Give us a reason to be free
Come on
Because you’re holding me back, holding me back, can’t you see
Come on
Let’s go

Please tell me why can’t you see I’m everything you wanted me to be
I tried to make it right, but my fear came to life
So let’s hold on tight and enjoy the ride
Don’t think about the bad things inside
Just think about the good things right in front of you

With everyday we’re moving forward
So we’re not left behind
With everyday we’re moving forward
So we’re not left behind

You’ve gotta tell me.
Is there something more
To live in misery
Because I can’t ignore
This twisted destiny
You’ve got to settle the score
Before we lose it all

Come on let’s go
And break the chains that are holding me
Come on let’s go
Give us a reason to be free
Come on
Because you’re holding me back, holding me back, can’t you see
Come on
Let’s go

We’ll learn to let, go

You’ve gotta tell me
Is there something more
To live in misery
Because I can’t ignore
This twisted destiny
We’ve got to settle the score
Before we lose it all

Come on let’s go
And break the chains that are holding me
Come on let’s go
Give us a reason to be free.
Come on
Because you’re holding me back, holding me back can’t you see.
Come on
Let’s go

Come on let’s go
Come on let’s go
Track Name: Road Sweet Home
I’ll reposition my interest
Because a promise is a promise no matter where it starts
I don’t think I’ll ever resent this
As I count my days to reach the stars

The light is too bright, and it’s blinding me now
I’m wearing my heart as I’m stealing the crown
Look in my eyes you’ll see the heart of a lion
I’m not trying to fight
You’re just so fucking defiant

Home sweet home is where I want to leave
But I can’t because you’re standing in front of me
Open road is what I want to see
Another night, another crowd is how it’s gonna be

Listen up
Good, I’ve got two things to say, yeah
One starts with you and the other ends with me
This is not a fight
It’s a full on war
We’ll push on through and never be ignored

Home sweet home is where I want to leave
But I can’t because you’re standing in front of me
Open road is what I want to see
Another night another crowd is how it’s gonna be

Road Sweet Home

Home sweet home is where I want to leave
But I can’t because you’re standing in front of me
Open road is what I want to see
Another night another crowd is how it’s gonna be
Track Name: Not Good Enough To Be Fake
I’m not good enough to be the voice in the back of your head
I’m not good enough to be the one that will make it out instead
You try to hold me down
But all your doing is making me stronger
You held my face in the ground
As my days were standing further away

How long will we wait
How long will we wait

To seek new shelter

I’m everything you wanted except for being fake
There’s something you should know you made a mistake
Time is the only thing that stands in our way
I’ve waited long enough, so don’t tell me what to be

I’ve waited so long
To prove you so wrong
For losing faith in me

With every passing day I fill my lungs with this lie
That I’m holding on to dreams so I can sail the sky
I’m not losing faith
But it is getting harder to breathe
Never will I wait
For you to set me free

How long will we wait
How long will we wait

To seek new shelter

I’m everything you wanted except for being fake
There’s something you should know you made a mistake
Time is the only thing that stands in our way
I’ve waited long enough so don’t tell me what to be

I’ve waited so long.
To prove you so wrong
For losing faith in me
Track Name: Life's No Time Machine
Chasing visions as I’m running after nothing
Losing precision as I’m tripping over my feet
Becoming pawns into this game in search of something
Looking for reasons to put the past behind me

So now the time has come we finally left and run to find a way to solid ground
And when my life is done then I’ll have jumped the gun and pulled the trigger on my ghost from the past

We’ll take this over

You’ve got to lead the way

We’ll take this over

And then I’ll find a way out so that we’ll never change
And to believe in false doubt is to then go astray

Clap your hands if you’re feeling this
I’ve been dreaming of every second we missed
And now I’m thinking that it’s too late, too late
To have regrets for all our mistakes

Clap your hands if you’re feeling this
I’ve been dreaming of every second we missed
And now I’m thinking that it’s too late, too late
To have regrets for all our mistakes
Tip your hat to happiness
And raise your glass to glory
Tip your hat to happiness
And raise your glass to glory
Tip your hat to happiness
And raise your glass to glory
Tip your hat to happiness

We’ll take this over

So I can find a better way to

And then I’ll find a way out so that we’ll never change
And to believe in false doubt is then to go astray
Track Name: Escape To Fantasia
This time around I'll lend my hand and don't ask why
I've given all I’ve got so why'd I even try
I’ve cheated all the way twice, but it stayed the same
Been all the way down the end
I will never change

When my hopes hit the sky as I'm falling to my knees
Back down back down
Run away with me
I keep my head high, nothing falls, what can I say
So just take my hand I'll lead the way to wake up from this bad dream

Come on tell me
Just what it means to be big
An easy summary
Because the aftermath is thick

They say that dreams are for suckers, so I can't lie
I'll never give it up until I hit the sky
All the fame and the fortune doesn't mean a thing
Give me one last chance
Or give me anything

When all else fails
And we can't go back to this life
We keep ourselves held closer
Yet stay forever just reaching up to the light

And how I wish it wasn't so but it's just a dream
We spend all day up all night wondering
And how I wish it wasn't so but it's just a dream

When my hopes hit the sky as I'm falling to my knees.
Back down back down
Fly away with me
I keep my head high nothing falls what can I say
So just take my hand I'll lead the way to wake up from this bad dream

Come on tell me
What it means to be big
An easy summary
Because the aftermath is thick

Discrepancy will see us through
We'll make it out alive

We'll make it out alive

When my hopes hit the sky as I'm falling to my knees.
Back down back down
Run away with me
I keep my head high nothing falls what can I say
So just take my hand I'll lead the way to wake up from this bad dream

Come on tell me
What it means to be big
An easy summary
Because the aftermath is thick

Come on tell me
What it means to be big
An easy summary
Because the aftermath is thick
Track Name: FSU
We’ll burn it down to the ground until there is nothing left

We follow rules just one and the rule is none
Turned back on all your doubts and now your over run
We'll burn it down to the ground and build it right back up
We'll turn this industry around and build it right back up
We need some flame to ignite the spark to bring this town to life from their deep dark hearts
We toss the answers over questions to the things they've said and made them realize that they were merely living in their head

You might say that we're dreaming
When we're just expressing what we feel
To get a hold of the feeling
To make our dreams become real

We're cracking down and tearing up until there's nothing left
We're rising up and shadows fall once they've seen our best
We'll burn it down to the ground and build it up again
We'll turn this industry around and build it up again
So hold on
To make them believe that we are more than your fucking machines

You might say that we're dreaming
When we're just expressing what we feel
To get a hold of the feeling
To make our dream become real

We'll burn it down to the ground until there's nothing left

You might say that we're dreaming
When we're just expressing what we feel
To get a hold of this feeling
To make this dream become real
