Little Things

Like the time in school when we got free lunch and the cool kids beat us up (reduced lunch)
And the rich kids had convertibles and we had to ride the bus (55)
Like the time we made the baseball team, but they still laughed at us (you still suck!!)
Like the time that girl broke up with me cause I wasn't cool enough TRICK!!

Chorus:
The little, little things, they always hang around
The little things, little things, they try to break me down
The little things, little things, they just won't go away
The little things, little things, made me who I am today

Bridge:
You wanna hate me now
But I won't stop now
Cause I can't stop now

Like the time Mom went to that institute cause she was breaking down (I just can't take it!)
Like the car we had that wouldn't start, we had to walk to get around (can I get a ride?)
And that same year on Christmas eve Dad went to the store (uuuh....see you guys later...)
We checked his room, his things were gone, we didn't see him no more DICK!!

Chorus
Bridge
Chorus


Waldorfworldwide

Listen up cause there ain't nothing funny
I wanna hot girl and a little bit of money
I wanna a little house where my band can live
Cause we're tired of movin' every other weekend
I wanna go to parties where they got no guns
I wanna rock with my band, I wanna have a little fun
Where thugs and punks and any other type
Can sing this song and up sing it all night

Chorus:
Everthing's gonna be alright now
Everything's gonna be alright
Get down, stay up all night now
Let's do this one more time
Everything'll be alright
Everything'll be alright, alright

All I wanna do is kick the welfare
All I wanna do is get my share
All I wanna do is kick the welfare
All I wanna do is get my share
And I don't wanna run for the president
I just want an honest way to my rent
And I'm tired of the man always shuttin' us down
Tired of my old man cause he's never around
And I'm tired of eating off of other people's plates
And I don't look important so they're telling me to wait
Police records said they wouldn't exist
I wanna know the meaning of the Christmas list
Said all I wanna do is kick the welfare
All I wanna do is get my share
All I wanna do is make somethin' from nothin'
It's GC baby and we're working with something

Chorus
We'll be self-made millionares
These lives we'll lead without a care, oh yeah
And we'll see what we'll be
Everything's gonna be alright now
Everybody say "ah yeah that's right"
Everthing's gonna be alright now
Everybody say it one more time
Everything'll be alright, alright....

We'll see you when we get there, we'll see you when we get there
On the video, or the radio, in the magazines, on the movie screens


The Motivation Proclamation

Spend your lazy, endless crazy
Days inside my head
You're so selfish, you're not the only
One who thinks he's dead
I'm paid to smile, now I'm on trial
For what you think I said

Bridge:
But I never said that everthing would be okay
And I never said that we would live to see another day

Chorus:
Motivate me
I wanna get myself out of this bed
Captivate me
I want good thoughts inside of my head
When I fall down would you come around
And pick me right up off the ground
When I fall down would you come around and pick me right up off the ground

Unrealistic, I'm unartistic
You say I'm selfish and absurd
Try to change me, try to save me
You say I'm gotta learn
I'm so blind, I'm out of time
You're so unkind sometimes
I never lied, I never lied, I never lied....

Bridge
Cause I never said....
Chorus
Cause everything, it'll be ok
You know we're gonna live
To see another day, yeah, yeah...motivate me.....yeah, motivate me....yeah.....


East Coast Anthem

Walking on the streets of DC
On the eastcoast where I live
You say what's the problem
What's with this angry kid
You don't want the way I walk
Or the way I talk
Or the way I swing my hands
You don't want the words I speak
Or the thoughts I think
And I know you'll never understand

Chorus:
You know   On the eastcoast we ride until we die
You know   Well, there's a place inside my mind
Yeah, a place you'll never find
There's a place inside my mind walk this way
You know

Wouldn't it be perfect
If I could sit with you?
And we would change a thing or two
We'd change a thing or two
We would change th eway you think
We would change the way I think
We can't change the way they think
So we're not changing anything

Chorus
There's a place inside we'll leave today.....

Cause on the eastcoast we ride
Until the day we die

Chorus

Festival Song

Don't care about a thing today
I used to but I'm fed up
And I can hear the words you say
I wish that you would shut up
I've got responsibility
That is my liability
A menace to society
At least that's what they say to me

Chorus:
But tonight, tonight, it's on tonight
I don't want your boring life
And I don't want your 9 to 5
Or anyone to tell me how to live my life

People always tell me not to waste my time
To get a real job and get back in line
You can say I'll never be a millionare
Tell me this guitar won't get me anywhere
I've got responsibility
That is my liability
I'm questioning authority
They say there's not a chance for me

Chorus
Your future's no future x3
I control my future

Chorus
I’m leavin’....tonight


Complicated
And we’ve been here for so many years
Still it seems as if you’re not there
(Are you there?)
Everytime I talk you turn away
(Do you care?)
Isn’t Dad an obligation to care
Chorus:
And we’ve been here for so many years
So many years still it seems
Why’re you so complicated, you’re overrated
You’re complicated
This feeling is love
Well, I came in the door
Yeah, I said it before
I never let the stress get me down no more
Giving thanks to the lord
You know I pray everyday
I’m giving shots to my peeps
And this what we say
And we say....

Chorus
You left us one little room with a black and white TV,
One eviction notice and a bill for therapy
You’re living all alone, you like a dog without a bone
I said you’re living all alone because you left us all at home
Well, you had a second chance, but you threw it all away
A fourth and fifth and sixth
But that was yesterday
Now you’re sitting at bar, just drowning in your tears
Lonely in a corner while everybody cheers
And we say....
Chorus

 

Seasons
Summer air reminds me of all the feelings of your love
And what it was like when we were together
Walking all along the beach
You were never far from my reach and you held me
Through stormy weather
Chorus:
And I
I wanna fall in love tonight
And I remember when you said
”Everything is gonna be alright”
Laying in the summer grass
You told me not to talk so fast as I told you
How I feel
You made me feel right at home
You told me I was not alone
And you knew just how I feel
Bridge:
I know we talked about it
I just can’t get around it
I just want one more night with you
Chorus
October air reminds me of all the seasons of your love
And what it was like when we were together
The smell of fall is everywhere
And now it seems I just don’t care
Cause now you’ve gone away
Chorus

 

I Don’t Wanna Stop
All these games you play, you’re messin’ with my head
(You’re messin’ with my head)
I don’t know why I stay, I should leave instead
(Should I leave instead?)
When I speak from my heart, you laugh like it’s a game
(This ain’t no game)
Yeah, we’d make great friends, but it just isn’t the same
Chorus:
And I know
This is not the way it should be
And I know
You treat him like me
But I don’t
I wanna stop
Don’t wanna stop
Now I don’t need you to buy me pretty things
(You don’t pay for me)
Pay for my tattoos or buy me diamond rings
(We don’t want those things)
All I know is that I’m happy to see you smile
(I wanna see you smile)
And it’d make my day if you’d just stay for a while
(Would you stay with me)
Chorus
This has gone the way too long....and I’m tired of moving on
Chorus

 

I Heard You
Today I screwed up again
You said I could tell in no way
You said good bye
I saw you sitting at your t-shirt stand with your new boyfriend
He’s really cool
I get the point
Chorus:
I don’t want you
I don’t want you
I heard you
I heard you
I heard you say
Not a chance what don’t you see
I don’t want you
I don’t want you
I heard you
I heard you
I heard you say
You’re not good enough for me
Today I screwed up again
I wasn’t paying attention
I walked into the wall again
I heard you laugh and saw you grin
While you were sitting at your t-shirt stand with all your cool friends
They’re really cool
I get the point
Chorus
Today I’ll give it one last try
And then I know I’ll wonder why
I did it to myself once again
I saw your boyfriend, he’s 6’3”
Quarterback on varsity
The football players love to torture me
So I’m feeling like I’m not fitting in
I know that I’m not fitting in with you
And your stuck-up friends
I get the point
Chorus

 

The Click

Just because I walk like Obi-Wan Kenobi
You people talk but you don’t even know me
And all these guys I think they wanna fight me
And all these girls I know that they don't like me
Some people laugh, they do it just to spite me
I'm in a crowd, but none of them are like me
But I don’t care what they say
I don’t need you anyway
I just go about my day
But anyway

Chorus:
You go out on Friday night
I'll stay in but that’s alright
Cuz I have found a click to call my own
In crowd out crowd I don't care
Your crowd my crowd we can share
Cuz I have found a click to call my own
 

So come and talk to me on my computer screen
The best years of our lives aren't as easy as they seem
But one day we'll look back and then we'll have to laugh
They used to call us names now they want our autograph

To get the girl to make the grade it’s all a show it’s all a game
And I would lose it if I played
It's all the same

So I don't care what they say I don't need them anyway
I just go about my day
But anyway

Chorus

She said she'd call
But I know she won't
She won't
She won't


Chorus

Walk By
She walks down to the store at eight
The devil walks with her and he thinks she’s great
When she looks at me I don’t know what I saw
I think he’s tryin’ to make his son in law
Chorus:
When she walk by
Walk by, walk by
She walk on by
Egos fly when she walks by
She caught my eye on October 9th
22 days before Halloween
How did I know she’d be my evil queen
Chorus
My mother warned me against girls like you
She said “Stay away from them, son, you know they’re not true
All they’re gonna do is put you under a spell
And when you’re falling down you’re going straight to hell”
Chorus

Let Me Go
Down in the streets outside of Washington, D.C.
I wasted all my time and you were there with me
Back then it meant so much to have you by my side
I always had your back and you always had mine
Chorus:
Sayin’....
Let me go
Have some fun
Well, my decision sucks, yeah
But I’m so young
We’d hang out late and fight just trying to have fun
We were such punk ass kids but we knew everyone
And who could see through such blazedup bloodshot eyes
There was a plan for us one day we’d realize
Chorus

Screamer
Communication is a lot like the wind
When I speak
It’s like no one understands and I’m left with empty hands
Forever I can’t speak
So many things I’ll never learn
You can’t cross bridges that you’ve burned
Chorus:
Why is life such an issue in your mind
Why are the answers to my problems hard to find
So hard to find
Don’t forget to buckle when you fall
Beneath the pressure of the seconds when your life became a screamer
Staring at the sea things become so small
I want movies of my dreams and pictures on my wall
Pictures on my wall
Chorus
You say that I’m a dreamer, I say you’re a non-believer
Take out the light
Take out the light, start screaming
I’m dreaming, I’m a dreamer
No one believes me
And you don’t either
Tell me what to do
Take out the light
Take out the light, start screaming

Change
I am lost in the see-thru
I think you lost yourself, too
Throughout all of this confusion
I hope I somehow get to you
I practiced all the things I’d say
To tell you how I feel
And when I finally get my chance
It all seems so surreal
Cause from the first time I saw you
I only thought about you
I didn’t know you
I wanted to hold onto
The things you’d never say to me
Cause you said
Chorus:
You can’t change the way you feel
(I could never do that, I could never do that)
But you can’t tell me this ain’t real
Cause this is real
(And you would see right through that)
In the end it’s all I’ve got
(So I’m gonna hold onto that)
So I’m gonna hold on and on and on and on....
Now you’ve got me watching your eyes
(Watching just to see, watching just to see)
Got me waiting just to see
(If you’ll ever look at me)
If it goes the way it never will
Your eyes are watching me
And now you’ve got me thinking back
The first time that I met you
Standing in a crowded room
But I could only see you
And I hope my words will get through
Cause now I can’t forget you
I wanna tell you
If only I could reach you
And make you feel this way
But you said

Chorus

Thank You Mom
I’m sitting here, I’m thinking back
To a time when I was young
My memory is clear as day
I’m listening to the dishes clink
You were downstairs you would sing
Songs of praise
And all the time we laughed with you
And all the time that you stay true to us
Now we’ll say
Chorus:
I said I thank you
I’ll always thank you
More than you would know
Than I could ever show
And I love you
I’ll always love you
There’s nothing I won’t do to say these words to you
That you’re beautiful forever
You were my mom, you were my dad
The only thing I ever had was you
It’s true
Even when the time got hard you were there to let us know
We’d get through
You showed me how to be a man
You taught me how to understand the things people do
You showed me how to love my God
You taught me that not everyone knows the truth
Chorus
That you will live forever
Chorus
That you’re beautiful forever


Album: The Young And The Hopeless

The Anthem

It's a new day, but it all feels old
It's a good life, that's what I'm told
But everything it all just feels the same
And my highschool it felt more to me
Like a jail cell, a penitantiary
My time spent there it only made me see
That I don't ever wanna be like you
I don't wanna do the things you do
I'm never gonna hear the words you say
Cause I don't ever wanna, I don't ever wanna be

Chorus:
You....don't wanna be just like you
What I'm saying is this is the anthem, throw all your hands up
You....don't wanna be you

Go to college, a university
Get a real job, that's what they said to me
But I could never live the way they want
I'm gonna get by and just do my time
Out of step while they all get in line
I'm just a minor threat so pay no mind
Do you really wanna be like them?
Do you really wanna be another trend?
Do you wanna be part of that croud?
Cause I don't ever wanna, I don't wanna be You....

Chorus

Lifestyles Of The Rich And The Famous
Always see it on TV
Or read it in the magazines
Celebrities want sympathy
All they do is piss and moan
Inside the Rolling Stone
Talking about how hard life can be
Bridge:
I’d like to see them spend a week
Living life out on the street
I don’t think they would survive
If they could spend a day or two
Walking in someone else’s shoes
I think they’d stumble and they’d fall
They would fall
Chorus:
Lifestyles of the rich and the famous
They’re always complaining
Always complaining
If money is such a problem
Well, they got mansions
Think we should rob them
And did you know when you were famous
You could kill your wife and there was no such thing as 25 to life
As long as you got the cash to pay the cochran
And did you know if you were caught and you were smoking crack
McDonald’s wouldn’t even wanna take you back
You could always run for mayor of D.C.
Bridge, Chorus

Wondering
Chorus:
If you want me to wait
I will wait for you
If you tell me to stay
I would stay right thru
If you don’t wanna say anything at all
I’m happy wondering
Since I was an young man
I never was a fun man
I never had a plan and no security then
Ever since I met you
I never could forget you
I only wanna get you right here next to me
Bridge:
Cause everybody
Woah....
Needs someone that they can trust and...
You’re somebody, woah, that I found just in time
Now my life is changing, it always rearranging
It always getting stranger than I thought it ever could
Ever since I found you, I wanna be around you
I wanna get down to the point that I need you
Bridge, Chorus
Don’t tell me the bad news
Don’t tell me anything at all
Just tell me that you need me
And stay right here with me
Chorus

The Story Of My Old Man
I don’t know too much about
Too much of my old man
I know he walked right out the door
We never saw him again
Last I heard he was at the bar doing himself in
I know I got that same disease
I guess I got that from him
Chorus:
This is the story of my old man
Just like his father before him
I’m telling you do anything you can
So you don’t end up just like them, like them
Monday he woke up and hated life
Drank until Wednesday and left his wife
Thursday thru Saturday lost everything
Woke up on Sunday miserable again
I remember baseball games and working on the car
He told me that he loved me and that I would go far
He showed me how to work hard and stick up for myself
I wish he wasn’t too hard to listen to himself
Chorus
Someday he’ll wish that he made things right
Long for his family and miss his wife
Remember the days he had everything
Now he’s alone and miserable again


Girls And Boys
Educated with money
He’s well dressed, not funny
And not much to say in most conversations
But he’ll foot the bill in
All situations
Cause he pays for everything
Chorus:
Girls don’t like boys, girls like cars and money
Boys will laugh at girls when they’re not funny

Paper or plastic
Don’t matter, she’ll have it
Vacations and shopping sprees
These are a few of her favorite things
She’ll get what she wants if she’s willing to please
His type of girl always comes with a fee
Hey now, there’s nothing for free
Chorus:
Girls don’t like boys, girls like cars and money
Boys will laugh at girls when they’re not funny
And these girls like these boys, like these boys like these girls
The girls with the bodies like boys with ferraris
Girls don’t like boys, girls like cars and money
Chorus
All of these boys, yeah and all of these girls losing their souls in a material world

My Bloody Valentine


Oh my love, please don’t cry
I’ll wash my bloody hands and we’ll start a new life

I ripped out his throat and called you on the telephone to
Take off my disguise
Just in time to hear you cry
Bridge:
When you
You mourned the death of your bloody valentine
The night he died
You mourned the death of your bloody valentine
One last time
Chorus:
Oh my love, please don’t cry
I’ll wash my bloody hands and we’ll start a new life
I don’t know much at all
I don’t know wrong from right
All I know is that I love you tonight
There was...police and flashing lights
The rain came down so hard that night
And the headlines read “A Lover Died”
No tell-tale heart was left to find
Bridge, Chorus
Tonight....
He dropped you off, I followed him home
Then I stood outside his bedroom window
Standing over him, he begged me not to do
What I knew, I had to do
Cause I’m so in love with you
Chorus

Hold On
This world, this world is cold
But you don’t, you don’t have to go
You’re feeling sad, you’re feeling lonely
And no one seems to care
Your mother’s gone and your father hits you
This pain you cannot bare
Bridge:
But we all bleed the same way as you do
And we all have the same things to go thru
Chorus1:
Hold on...
If you feel like letting go
Hold on...
It gets better than you know
Your days, you say they way too long
And your nights, you can’t sleep at all
Hold on....
And you’re not sure what you’re waiting for
But you don’t want to no more
And you’re not sure what you’re looking for
But you don’t want to no more
Bridge
Chorus2:
Hold on...
If you feel like letting go
Hold on...
It gets better than you know
Don’t stop looking, you’re one step closer
Don’t stop searching, it’s not over...hold on
What are you looking for?
What are you waiting for?
Do you know what you’re doing to me?
Go ahead...what are you waiting for?
Chorus2

Riot Girl
She’s got tattoos and piercings
She likes minor threat, she likes social distortion
My girl’s a hot girl
A hood rat who needs an attitude adjustment
Chorus:
Christina wouldn’t wanna meet her
She hates you Britney so you better run for cover
My girl’s a hot girl
A riot girl and she’s angry at the world
Emergency call 911
She’s pissed off at everyone
Police, Rescue, FBI
She wants a riot, she wants a riot
And everywhere we go she gets us thrown out constantly
But that’s OK
Cause I know, I know, I know my baby would do anything for me
Yeah
Chorus:
Christina wouldn’t wanna meet her
She hates you Britney so you better run for cover
My girl’s a hot girl
A riot girl and she’s takin’ on the world
Emergency call 911
She’s pissed off at everyone
Police, Rescue, FBI
She wants a riot, she wants a riot
Don’t you know that all I really want is you
Gotta know that all I really want is you
Emergency call 911
She’s pissed off at everyone
Police, Rescue, FBI
She wants a riot, she wants a riot

 

Say Anything
Here I am on the phone again and
Awkward silences on the other end
I used to know the sound of a smile in your voice
But right now
All I feel
Is the pain of fighting starting up again

Bridge:
All the things we talk about , you know they stay on my mind
On my mind
All the things we laugh about will bring us through it everytime
After time, after time
Chorus:
Don’t say a word
I know you feel the same
Just give me a sign
Say anything, say anything
Please don’t walk away
I know you wanna stay
If you’d just give me a sign
Say anything, say anything
Some say that time changes
Best friends can become strangers
But I don’t want that
No, not for you
If you’d just stay with me we could make it through
So here we are again
The same old argument
Now I’m wondering if things’ll ever change and
When will you laugh again?
Laugh like you did back when
We’d make noise till 3 am
And the neighbours would complain
Bridge, Chorus
I’m falling, I’m falling
I’m falling down
I’m falling, I’m falling
I’m falling down
Down, down.....

Chorus
Please don’t leave
Say anything, say anything

The Day That I Die

One day I woke up, I woke up knowing
Today is the day I will die
Cashdogg was barking, went to the park and enjoyed it one last time
I called my mother, told her I loved her
And I begged her not to cry
I wrote a letter that said I’d miss her
And signed that goodbye...
Bridge:
You know the happiest day of my life
I swear the happiest day of my life is the day that I die
Chorus1:
Can you feel the cold tonight?
It sets in but it’s alright
Darkness falls, I’m letting go
All alone but I feel fine
We took a drive and we drove thru DC
To see the places we lived
Long conversations, we talked of old friends
And all the things that we did
Summer nights, drunken fights
Mistakes we made, did we live it right?

Bridge

Chorus2:
Can you feel the cold tonight?
It sets in but it’s alright
Darkness falls, I’m letting go
All alone but I feel just fine
You know the happiest day of my life
I know the happiest day of my life
I swear the happiest day of my life....
Is the day that I die
Chorus1
Did I live it right? 
I hope I lived it right
Did I live it right? 
Did I live it right? 
I hope I lived it right
I know I lived it right



The Young And The Hopeless

Hard days made me, hard nights shaped me  
I don't know they somehow saved me  
And I know I'm making something  
Out of this life they called nothing  
I take what I want, take what I need  
You say it's wrong, but it's right for me  
I won't look down, won't say I'm sorry  
I know that only God can judge me  

Bridge:
And if I make it through today  
Will tomorrow be the same?  
Am I just running in place?  
And if I stumble and I fall  
Should I get up and carry on?  
Or will it all just be the same?

Chorus:
Cause I'm young and I'm hopeless  
I'm lost and I know this  
I'm going nowhere fast, that's what they say  
I'm troublesome, I've fallen  
I'm angry at my father  
It's me against this world and I don't care  
I don't care

And no one in this industry   
Understands the life I lead  
When I sing about my past   
It's not a gimmick, not an act  
This critics and this trust fund kids   
Try to tell me what punk is  
But when I see them on the street they got nothing to say!

Bridge, Chorus

Chorus


Emotionless

Hey Dad, I'm writing to you  
Not to tell you that I still hate you  
Just to ask you how you feel  
And how we fell apart? How this fell apart?  
Are you happy out there in this great wide world?  
Do you think about your sons?  

Do you miss your little girl?  
When you lay your head down  
How do you sleep at night?  
Do you even wonder if we're alright?  
We're alright, we're alright

Chorus:
It's been a long hard road without you by my side   Why weren't you there the nights that we cried?  
You broke my mother's heart, you broke your children for life  
It's not OK, but we're alright  
I remember the days you were a hero in my eyes  
But those are just a long lost memory of mine  
I spent so many years learning how to survive  
Now I'm writing just to let you know I'm still alive

The days I spent so cold, so hungry  
Were full of hate   I was so angry!  
The scars run deep inside this tattooed body  
There's things I'll take to my grave  

But I'm OK, I'm OK

Chorus
And sometimes I forgive 
Yeah and this time I'll admit  
That I miss you, said I miss you

Chorus

And sometimes I forgive  
And this time I'll admit  
That I miss you, I miss you...Hey Dad 


Movin’ On
When I think about my life
I wonder if I will survive to live to see 25 or will I just fall?
Like all my friends, they just keep dying
People round me always crying
In this place that I like to call my home
Bridge:
Well, not everybody knows that
Everybody goes to a better place
And not everybody knows that
Everybody could be living their last days
But the hard times will come
And we’ll keep movin’ on
We’re movin’ up
Keep movin’ on

Chorus1:
Life. Hope. Truth. Trust. Faith. Pride. Love. Lust.
On without the things we’ve lost
The things we’ve gained we’ll take with us
And all I’ve got are these two hands to
Make myself a better man
I wonder if I’ll ever see the end of this
With all this rain it just keeps falling
On my head and now I’m calling
Out to someone else to help me make it thru

Bridge

Chorus2:
Life. Hope. Truth. Trust. Faith. Pride. Love. Lust.
Pain. Hate. Lies. Guilt. Laugh. Cry. Live. Die.
Some friends become enemies
Some friends become your family
Make the best with what you’re given
This ain’t dying, this is living!
Said we’re movin’ on
And we got nothing to prove
To anyone
Cause we’ll get thru
We’re movin’ on and on and on and on and on....
Chorus2

 

Album: The Chronicles Of Life And Death


The Chronicles Of Life And Death

You come in cold, you're covered in blood
They're all so happy you've arrived
The doctor cuts your caught
Hands you to your mom
She sets you free into this life
And where do you go
With no destination, no map to guide you
Wouldn't you know
That it doesn't matter, we all end up the same

Chorus:
These are the chronicles of life and death and everything between
These are the stories of our lives as fictional as they may seem
You come in this world
And you go out just the same
Today could be the best day of your life

And money talks in this world
That's what idiots will say
But you'll find out that this world
Is just an idiots parade
Before you go you've got some questions
And you want answers
But now you're old
Cold covered in blood
Right back to where you started from

Chorus
Today could be the worst day of your life

Chorus

Today could be the best day of
Today could be the worst day of
Today could be the last day of your life
It's your life
Your life.....

Walk Away (Maybe)

I made this bed
I choose to lie in it
Live with my regrets
Sleep with what I said
Could this be the end
Am I standing on the edge
Of everything I wanted now
I was afraid, I was afraid

Chorus1:
Maybe I'm just scared
To face the things I fear
It's easier to walk away from everything

Separate my soul
With all the things we shared
I'm falling to pieces   Now
Say a prayer for me (Say a prayer for me)
When you go to bed (Cuz)
I'm in need of your faith   Now
I was afraid

Chorus2:
Maybe I'm just scared
To face the things I fear
It's easier to walk away from everything
If we could just reset
And live in happiness
Instead of our regrets  We'd salvage everything
We don't have to walk away

Pray for me now   I'm in need   Of faith
Pray for me now   I'm in need

Chorus2


S.O.S.
Chorus:
Is anybody listening?
Can you hear me when I call?
Shooting signals in the air
Cuz I need somebody’s help
I can’t make it on my own
So I’m giving up myself
Is anybody listening, listening
I’ve been stranded here and I’m miles away
Making signals hoping they save me
I lock myself inside these walls
Cuz out there I’m always wrong
I don’t think I’m gonna make it
So while I’m sitting here
On the eve of my defeat
I write this letter and hope it saves me
Chorus
I’m stuck in my own head and I’m oceans away
Would anybody notice if I chose to stay here?
I’ll send an S.O.S. tonight
And wonder if I will survive
How in the hell did I get so far away this time?
So now I’m sitting here
The time of my departure’s near
I say a prayer, please someone save me
Chorus
I’m lost here
I can’t make it on my own
I don’t wanna die alone
I’m so scared
Drowning now
Reaching out
Holding onto everything
I know
Crying out
Dying now
Need some help
Chorus

I Just Wanna Live

I need an alarm system in my house
So I know when people are creepin’ about
These peolple are freakin’ me out
(These days)
It’s getting hectic everywhere that I go
They won’t leave me alone
There’s things they all wanna know
I’m paranoid of all the people I meet
Why are they talking to me?
And why can’t anyone see?
Chorus:
I just wanna live
Don’t really care about the things that they say
Don’t really care about what happens to me
I just wanna live
Just wanna live, just wanna live....
I rock a law suit when I’m going to court
A white suit when I’m gettin’ divorced
A black suit at the funeral home
And my birthday suit when I’m home alone
Talking on the phone
Got an interview
With the Rolling Stone, they’re saying:
”Now you’re rich and now you’re famous”
Fake ass girls all know your name and
Lifestyles of the rich and famous
Your first hit aren’t you ashamed
Of the life, of the life
Of the life we’re living
Chorus
“Stop your messing around, boy
Better think of your future
Better make some good plans, boy”
Said everyone of my teachers
”Look out, you better play it safe
You never know what hard time will come your way”
We say, where we’re coming from
We’ve already seen the worst that this life can bring
Now we expect it everywhere that we go
All the things that they say
Yeah, we already know
Chorus

Ghost Of You
I will wait until the end
When the pendulum will swing back to the darker side of our hearts bleeding
I will save this empty space next to me like it’s a grave
Where I lay a place for us to sleep eternally together
Bridge:
I have been searching for
Traces of what we were
Chorus:
A ghost of you
Is all that I have left
It’s all that I have left of you to hold
I wake in the night to find there’s no one there but me
And nothing left of what were at all
So here I am
Pacing around this house again
With pictures of us living on these walls
I see my breath in the cold of the air
That I breathe and I’m wondering
I’m wondering if it’s you that I feel, if it’s you that feel here
Hunting me forever
Bridge, Chorus
And I’m not looking for
Anything but us
Anything but we were
And I’m not asking for
Painted memories
I only want to know you’re here
Chorus

Predictable
Something isn't right
I can feel it again, feel it again
This isn't the first time that you left me waiting
Sad excuses and false hope's high
I saw this coming, still I don't know why
I let you in
Chorus:
I knew it all along
It's so predictable
I knew something would go wrong
(Something's always wrong)

So you don't have to call
Or say anything at all
It's so predictable (so predictable)
So take your empty words
Your broken promises
And all the time you stole
Cause I am done with this
I could give it away, give it away
I'm doing everything I should've
And now I'm making a change
I'm living the day
I'm giving back what you gave me
I don't need anything

Chorus
Everywhere I go, everyone I meet, everytime I try to fall in love
They all wanna why I'm so broken
Why am I so cold?
Why am I so hard inside?
Why am I scared?
What am I afraid of?
I don't even know! This story never had an end
I've been waiting
I've been searching
I've been hoping
I've been dreaming you would come back
But I know the ending of this story
You're never coming back   Never!

Chorus

Everywhere I go for the rest of my life
Everyone I love
Everyone I care 'bout (so predictable)
They're all gonna wanna know what's wrong with me
And I know what it is
And I'm gonna end this right now (so predictable)

Secrets
In the dark, in the darkness you will find
Dirty little secrets we all hide
Cause we all have a darker side
A place we keep where no one else will find
Chorus:
Cuz everybody wants to hide their secrets away
Nobody wants to stand up to the pain
But I will stand up to the pain
Wake up and fight again
If you could
Dance with me through this rain
We will fight
We’ll fight again
Fight again

In the back
In the closets of your mind
That’s where skeletons and dirty secrets hide
And I’ll rip out my insides
And leave them on display for you tonight
Chorus
All my life I hide my secrets away
In the dark, in the dark, in the dark
We all try to hide our secrets away
In the dark, in the dark, in the dark

Stand up to the pain
Wake up and fight again
If you could
Dance with me through this rain
We will fight
We’ll fight again
Fight again
Cuz everybody wants to hide their secrets away
And that’s okay
Nobody wants to stand up to the pain
And fight again

 

The Truth
So here we are
We are alone
There’s weight on your mind
And I wanna know
The truth if this is how you feel
Say it to me
If this was ever real

Chorus:
I want the truth from you
Gimme the truth
Even if it hurts me
I want the truth from you
Gimme the truth
Even if it hurts me
I want the truth....
So this is you
You’re talking to me
You found a million ways to let me down
So I’m not hurt when you’re not around I was blind
But now I see
This is how you feel
Just say it to me
If this was ever real
Chorus

I know that this will break me
I know that this might make me cry
Gotta say what’s on your mind
On your mind
I know that this will hurt me
And break my heart and soul inside
I don’t wanna live this lie
Chorus

Just gimme the truth
Cause I don’t care no more
Gimme the truth
Cause I don’t care no more, no....


The World Is Black

Turn on channel 7 at a quarter to eight
You see the same damn thing it’s just a different day
And no one really knows why this is happening
But it’s happening
And everywhere you go it’s just a different place
You get the same dark feelings, see the same sad faces
No one really cares that this is happening

Bridge:
We come into this world
And we are all the same
And in that moment there’s no one to blame
Chorus:
But the world is black
And hearts are cold
And there’s no hope
That’s what we’re told
And we can’t go back, it won’t be the same
Forever changed
By the things we’ve seen, seen
Living in this place it’s always been this way
There’s no one’s doing nothing, so there nothing’s changed
And can’t live when this world just keeps dying
It’s dying
People always tell me this is part of the plan
That God got everybody in his hands
But I can only pray that God is listening
Is he listening?

Bridge:
But living in this world
Growing colder everyday
Nothing can stay perfect, now I see
Chorus
We come into this world
And we are all the same
And in that moment there’s no one to blame
But we’re living in this world
Growing colder everyday
Nothing can stay perfect, now I see
Chorus
Turn on channel 7 at a quarter to eight
You see the same damn thing it’s just a different day
And no one really knows why this is happening

Mountain
All these dreams and all these plans
I built them all with these two hands
Everything I’ve realized my dreams
The city lights shine down and they blind me sometimes
And through it all I was lost but I found my way
Chorus:
So tell me what you want
Cause I would give you anything
Tell me what you need and I’ll go get it
I’d give up all these dreams to have you in my arms right now
I’d give up everything and I’d forget it
Wasn’t on a mountain
When it came to me
All my life’s been wasted
Chasing shallow dreams

So here we are
Let me lift you up and show you this world over me
And all these things what I’ve gained and what I’ve seen
It can’t compare
To the love that you could give to me
Chorus
Years go by
And nothing’s slowing down the time
Years go by and then they’re wasted
All this time
I thought that I gained everything
If you’re not mine then I’m so empty
Wasn’t on a mountain
When it came, when it came to me
All my life’s been wasted
Chasing shallow dreams

We Believe
There’s a woman crying out tonight
Her world has changed
She asked God why
Her only son has died
And now her daughter cries
She can’t sleep at night
Downtown, another day for all the suits and ties
Another war to fight
There’s no regard for life
How do they sleep at night
How can we make things right
Just wanna make this right
Chorus:
We believe
In this love
We are all the same
Human in all our ways and all our pain
So let it be
There’s a love that could fall down like rain
Let us see
Let forgiveness wash away the pain
What we need
And no one really knows what they are searching for
We believe
This world is crying for so much more
Chorus
So this world
Is too much
For you to take
Just lay it down and follow me
I’ll be everything you need
In every way

Chorus

It Wasn’t Enough
It wasn’t enough....
I would try to believe
In the things I cannot see
But my faith is shaken now
Like it’s never been before
When I call and you don’t come
I don’t know what I should do
Should I call?
Should I even count on you?
Chorus:
I’ve given all I can
(It wasn’t enough)
To keep you in my hands
(Should I give up?)
I try to understand
(Was it ever enough?)
I don’t understand
So here I am, once again
With my back against the wall
Afraid to show you, afraid to tell you
That I don’t know you like I did
I’ve never been so alone
I never felt so insecure
And now I don’t know where I’m going
In my life I’m not so sure
Chorus
Giving up tonight
I won’t let go, won’t let go of you
Giving up tonight
I wanna show you, wanna show you
Giving up tonight
I won’t let go, won’t let go of you
Giving up tonight
Am I giving up, giving up?
I don’t wanna give this up, I won’t....
I’ve given all I can, it wasn’t enough
To keep you in my hands
Should I give up?!
I try to understand, was it ever enough?
I don’t understand
Everything you want from me
I’ve tried so hard for everything
Everything you want from me
I’ve tried so hard, could never be
Anything you want from me
Anything you want from me
Anything you want from me I’ve given up

In This World (Murder)
In this world all our sins are simple
We choose death over innocent life
And in this world it’s not our money that’s evil
It’ the ones who choose it over life
And in my heart I can’t believe in this murder
And I will not be fed by the lies
Or the life that’s created just to be murdered
It’s murder
Chorus:
No matter how hard they try
And no matter how loud they cry
They can’t buy their way into heaven
No matter how hard they try
And no matter how high they climb up the ladder
They won’t reach up into heaven
And they can’t see the innocent lives, the pointless suffering
And in my heart I wanna undo all this murder
And give back the innocent lives
Open cages and their luxurious murder
It’s murder
Chorus
Murder – Innocent life – Innocent
What have we done?
No mercy for beautiful life, money, for blood
Is murder
Chorus

Meet My Maker
So this is it, this is my life
This is my time, it’s ending tonight
I made my mistakes
I tried to live right
Stepped out of the darkness into the light
And when I’m gone
Will they remember?
Will they mourn?
Will they move on?
When my sad songs for lonely son
His time has come, his life is done
Chorus:
And tonight
We’ll celebrate the end
Of this life
And we’ll sing
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah....
Woah, it’s alright
This is a night like we’ve began
With open arms
This is the way, the way I’ll meet my maker tonight
And on my grave
What will it say?
Here lies another soul that was saved
So please don’t cry
Just sleep at night
And I will wait on the other side
Chorus

Wounds
Lost and broken
Hopeless and lonely

The River
As I walk through the valley of the shadow of LA
The footsteps that were next to me have gone their separate ways
I've seen enough now   to know the beautiful things
Don't always stay that way
I've done enough now to know this beautiful place
Isn't everything they say

Bridge:
I heard
That evil comes disguised
Like the cíty of angel
I'm walking towards the light!

Chorus:
Baptized in the river
I've seen a vision of my life and I wanna be delivered
In the city was a sinner
I've done a lot of things wrong
But I swear I'm a believer
Like the prodigal son
I was out on my own
Now I'm trying to find my way back home
Baptized in the river
I'm delivered
I'm delivered

(M. Shadows)
You're from a small town
You're gonna grow up fast
Underneath these lights
Down in Hollywood
On the boulevard
The dead come back to life
To the praying mother
And the worried father
Let your children go
If they come back
They'll come on stronger
And if they don't you'll know!

Bridge:
They say
That evil comes disguised
Like the city of angel
I'm walking towards the light!

Chorus
Baptized in the river (on my own)
Baptized in the river (on my own)
I wanna delivered (on my own)
(on my own)
Baptized in the river (on my own)
I wanna be delivered
Baptized in the river (on my own)
I wanna be delivered
Baptized in the river (on my own)
I wanna be delivered
I confess I'm a sinner
I've seen a vision of my life and I wanna be delivered


Dance Floor Anthem  

 

She’s going out to forget they were together
All that time he was taking it for granted
She wants to see if there’s more
than he gave she’s looking for

He calls her up
He’s trippin on the phone now
He doesn’t want her out there
And alone now
He knows she’s movin it
Knows she’s using it
Now he’s losing it
She don’t care

Chorus:
Everybody hold up your hands
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love
To the beat now
If you’ve got nothing left
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love
Back it up now
You’ve got a reason live
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love
Do it good now
Don’t be afraid to get down
Say I don’t wanna be in love
I don’t wanna be in love

He was always giving her attention
Looking hard to find the piece she mentioned
He was dedicated
But most suckers hate it
That girl was fine
But she didn’t appreciate him

She calls him up
She’s tripping on the phone now
He had to get up
And he ain’t comin home now
He’s tryin hard to get up
That’s how we come with him
When he first met her
When they first got together

Chorus

To the beat
You got nothing to lose
Don’t be afraid to get down

We break up
It’s something that we do now
Everyone has got to do it sometimes
It’s okay, let it go
Get out there and find someone

It’s too late too be trippin on the phone here
Get off the wire
You know everything is good here
Stop what you’re doing
You don’t wanna ruin
The sense that you got to
find a new one

 

Chorus

 

Keep Your Hands Off My Girl

 

Let the record play
Let the record play
Let the record play

The way that you dance
The way that you move
The way that you stare at me across the room
You carry Dior bags
And you got your Chanel
You wear Louis Vuitton, HG and YSL
Now I got what you need
I got DCMA
I got brass knuckles hanging
From my neck in my chai,
I got a model 26
But she stays in her place
I got a curve shirt neatle
Tucked inside in my waist

Chorus:
And the record keeps playing
The same old song
The hipsters been muggin' on me all night long
They say "Aha, ahha"
Keep your hands off my girl
Keep your hands off my girl
They say "Aha, ahha"
But the record keeps playing
The same old song
They say "Aha, ahha"
Keep your hands off my girl
Keep your hands off my girl

Now she’s sweating my friends
And my hurricane shoes
She likes the records I spin
MY Adam Barton tattoos
But she can't say "what's up"
So what does she do
She just stays posted up
The other side of the room
I got AMC tattooed on my hand
I got black wall street on a black bandana

She, she, she don't wanna talk about it
He, he, he wants to fight about
Me, me, I don't wanna fight about it
I just wanna be about it
I'm just trying to stay about it
Step out the wagon
You know the boy starts to hate
The girl that came with him
They like that's not the boy she dates
They get to fighting and swearing
And now the boyfriend is staring
The disco ball on the ceiling
Looks like the chain that I'm wearing
But the music keeps playing

I got brass knuckles hanging
from my neck in my chain
I got brass knuckles hanging
from my neck in my chain


Chorus

 

 You carry Dior bags
And you got your Chanel
You wear Louis Vuitton, HG and YSL
Now I got what you need
I got DCMA
I got brass knuckles hanging
From my neck in my chain
I got brass knuckles hanging
From my neck in my chain

 

 

Victims Of Love

In the beginning, I tried to warn you
You play with fire, its gonna burn you
And here we are now, in the same situation,
You never listen, I never listen
Now I am thinking of a way that I can make an escape
It's got me caught up in a web and my hearts the prey
Do you really wanna throw your heart away, away, away?

Chorus:
Everybody's hurt somebody before
Everybody's been hurt by somebody before
You can change but you'll always come back for more
Its a game and we are all just victims of love.
Don't try to fight it, victims of love
You can't decide it, victims of love, victims of love

Now you've back tracked
You're running away cause it just happened again and you just want it to end
Trying your best to not let yourself go cold, so cold.
Now you think about the things you thought you wanted to say
But when you open up your mouth it don't come out that way
Are you really gonna throw your heart away, away, away?


Chorus

 

In the beginning, I tried to warn you
You play with fire, its gonna burn you
And here we are now, in the same situation,
You never listen, I never listen
 
Chorus

 

Break Apart her Heart

When you call she doesn't answer
When you write she doesn't answer
You go out you see him with her
She told you she was sick at home
The ring you gave thrown away with all the letters
And when you see him with her, he doesn't even care at all

And she follows him around like you follow her around
And he doesn't even care when you figure it out
The only way you're gonna keep somebody around
Well, I'm about to let you know

Chorus:
There's something I don't really wanna understand
The only way a woman's gonna want a man
The only way you'll ever keep her in your hands
Is break it apart her heart
Don't tell her she's the reason that you live
Don't give her everything that you got to give
If you wanna keep the girl for as you as you live
Just break it apart her heart

Can't you see the way she's crying
Well, that's what keeps you trying
She knew that she could have you
And he don't give her what she wants
There's truth about this
You say you wanna be noticed
Well, if you wanna be noticed you've gotta learn to break some hearts
Don't try to understand

Chorus
I don't understand this cruelty
I don't understand but now I see

Chorus
I don't understand this cruelty
I don't understand it's just not....
I don't understand this cruelty
But now I see


 


All Black




Chorus:
Take a look at my life, all black
Take a look at my clothes, all black
Like Johnny Cash, all black
Like the Rolling Stones wanna paint it black

Like the night that we met, all black
Like the colour of your dress, all black
Like the seats in my Cadillac
I used to see red, now its just all black

As long as I could remember I dreamed in black and white
As I grew up and the sun went down I never felt more alright
My mother she use to tell me...Son you better get to church
And its a dark, dark world and the people out there and you know its only getting worse
Never been much for weddings or anniversaries
But I go to a funeral if I'm invited any day of the week
Some people say that I sound strange some say that I'm not right
But I find beauty in this world every single night


Chorus

 

I sat down at her table at the end of the night
She was having black coffee and a cigarette, she wasn't wearing white
She said, people tell me that I am strange they say that I am not right
She said the only time I feel alright is in the dead of night
I think I found the one for me


Chorus

I remember feeling so alive
The night I looked into her eyes

Chorus

 

 

Beautiful Place

Mother, can we start over?
I wanna be the boy was back then
Before the world came
And made me colder
I wanna feel the way I did back then
With love in my heart


Chorus:
We live in a beautiful place
Let love take away all this pain
We live in a beautiful place
We wasted so many days
Our hearts are as dark as the rain
We live in a beautiful place

Father, can we start over?
Take me to the places that we lived
Before the days came and made us older
I wanna feel the way I did back then
Before my heart grew cold


Chorus

Our hearts are as dark as the rain
Its a beautiful place if we make it
It's a beautiful place to be wasted, don’t you know.

Chorus

 

 

Something Else

She is a diamond, I am a stone
I come from nowhere, she's been to Rome
Her dad is a lawyer, and mine’s not around
She has good manners, I'm rough all around

But you could come from something; you could come from nothing
You could be a princess; you could be a working man
But in the end...

Chorus
We all want something else (We all want something else)
We all want something we can't have
We all want something else (We all want something else)
We all want something strange to us
Maybe a roll in the dirt, or it’s a seat in first class
We all want something we can't have

She wants to go to restaurants in Beverly Hills and people stare
But I don't care it's just what she grew up around.
She drags me to parties where people ask me where I went to college;
She knows damn well I barely finished school.
She knows a lot about yearly salaries and trust funds and dividends;
She knows that I don't really care at all
But we got together, and it’s working ok


Chorus

Well you can spend your whole life looking for something, something that might be
Right in front of your eyes, but you'll be looking for something else you'll never find

We all want something else (We all want something else)
We all want something we can't have
We all want something else (We all want something else)
We all want something strange to us
We all want something else (We all want something else)
We all want something we can't have
We all want something else (We all want something else)
We all want something strange to us
Maybe a roll in the dirt, or it’s a seat in first class
We all want something we can't have

 

 

Broken Hearts Parade

Oh oh Oh, oh Oh oh, here we go, Oh oh Oh, oh Oh oh,
Oh oh Oh, oh Oh oh

We got problems, we don't know how to solve them
Everywhere we go, we got some skeletons that follow
We got baggage, you know we're gonna drag it
everywhere we go, for everyone to see

Chorus:
In the broken hearts parade
and I’m putting my heart out on display there's no,
masquerade, just a funeral march for love today
the band strikes up and they're playing our song
Dressed in black and we're singing along, to the
broken hearts parade, I've never been better then I am today

Oh oh oh, Oh oh oh

You got a question, how do we get it started?
I got an answer: let go of your heart and
love it, live it, leave it and get into it
If you wanna start it, this is how you do it

Chorus

I used to lie awake at night and wonder when she's coming home
It used to be so hard to wake up everyday

Chorus

 

March on to the soul
the beating of a broken heart
stop put the rhythm to bed
to the beating of a broken heart

 

 

March On

Don’t cry
Open up your eyes and know
There’s someone else out there that feels this way

I’m singing to you
Cause I know what you’ve been through and now
It’s not so long ago I felt the same

Like soldiers
March on
If we can make it through tonight we'll see the sun
March on, march on

I remember summer nights alone
Fireflies the only thing we own
All we had were dreams of California
I remember winters were so cold
Hunger was the only thing we know
And rock n’ roll dreamin’ was what saved us

Like soldiers
March on
If we can make it through tonight we'll see the sun
March on, march on

Till we see the sun
Till we see the sun

Through the good times
Through the bad times
Through the long days
Through the hard nights
Keep on till we see the sun

Like soldiers
March on
If we can make it through tonight we'll see the sun
March on, march on

Like soldiers
March on
If we can make it through tonight we'll see the sun
March on, march on

Even when there’s no one there for you, march on
Even when the days are long for you, march on
Like soldiers
March on
