Lyrics for my bands first EP

So, I'm in a band called Running with lions :) we're currently writing an EP that we'll record hopefully in September, we have like 4 solid songs so far so I feel like showing some of the lyrics :')
All our links so far:

Random chorus's verses from what we have of the EP so far:

You step into a world and it feels so unique,                        
But it’s just another freedom chaser, "love" teaching,
Is there really no other theme, that you can bring?...
You don’t need him to love you to love yourself,
You only get a break if you work before you sell,
And you might disagree but if means enough to me,
That I would speak my own thoughts with feeling.
We used to read each other like a really good book,
And I used to follow her by hook or crook,
We used to see each other with honey glazed eyes,
Sometimes I see a person I could almost despise.
I still love you now; maybe slightly less than then,
And yes you will always be my best friend,
But why haven’t you spoke to me in months?
Maybe you've changed just like I have…
I feel so lost when you’re away,
Like my music has stopped being played.
Just wasting time until I see you again, two more nights and a day.
Just wasting time until I see you again, and I can have you all my way.
You’re so addictive and I am a creep,
but no one on Earth can really satisfy me,
And my head’s like an old clock; just loud until it breaks,
Waiting for a fix, another big mistake.
I barely even know you, it’s a habit of mine,
To cling like a spider with a web to climb,
I’d Chew You Up And Spit You Out.
Kid you don’t even know me yet...It’s 4am and I’m locked out of my head again,
asking to get in, why is the ice always so thin?
Close enough to touch but not close enough to breathe you in,
lasting long enough to test the water to drown myself in.
So take my hand, we can ride through the sky.
I’ve accepted your roses you'll glide through my mind.
I’m singing along to the same song, that brought me here,
Every thought of each word, everything that I hear.
Oh how we've grown, the past 3 years
you’ve changed but you are still here
with me and forever we’ll be
So far from the beginning.
Going no where fast... going somewhere fast...
So set it off, to have it all, let me go with you, we have nothing to lose.

Rats for experiments

I'm not sure how I feel about this topic. Half of me understands why rats are used for so many experiments, because they do have a lot of similar qualities to us humans. But that's why they're special, they have similar illnesses to us, they like attention, etc, so in a way it makes sense to say "well if a few rats dying ends up with us finding the cure to cancer it's worth it", I can respect that, but are these tests honestly ever going to do something near that? We can't really know. With the technology scientists have, we can find out so much without even having to hurt another animal. Also, to my knowledge, the philidomide drug (not sure on the spelling) was tested on rats, and it worked fine on them, but when used on humans their offspring were born without some of their limbs, so although we do have similarities, we are not the same, the tests aren't defiant. If we tested possible cures on a rat, and they killed the rat, we would probably throw that cure away, but it COULD still work on a human. Anyway that's my thoughts on it.
