EAST COAST ANTHEM
 
Walkin on the streets of DC, on the East Coast where I live
You say what's the problem, what's with this angry kid?
You don't like the way I walk, or the way I talk, or the way I swing my hands
You don't like the words I speak or the thoughts I think
And I know you'll never understand
You know-on the East Coast we ride until we die
You know, oh oh oh
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
and 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 the way you think, we would change the way I think
We can't change the way they think but we're not changin anything
You know-on the East Coast we ride until we die
You know, oh oh oh
there's a place inside my mind, yeah a place you'll never find
theres a place inside my mind leave today
you know
(Bridge)
Cuz on the East Coast we ride, until the day we die
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
there's a place inside my mind, yeah a place you'll never find
theres a place inside my mind leave today
you know
 
LITTLE THINGS
 
***********************************************************
Yeah this song is dedicated to every kid who ever got picked last in gym class
(This is Good Carlotte, yeah this is for you)
To every kid who never had a date to no school dance
(this is for you)
To everyone who's ever been called a freak
(Ya know what I"m saying, now come with me)
This is for you
Here we, what, here we go
(Come with me)
What, yeah, what
What
Ya'll know what I'm talking about
What, yeah
Ya'll know what I'm saying
Ohhhh oh oh oh oh (Come on)
Ohhhh oh oh oh oh (Let's do this)
Ohhhh oh oh oh oh
Ohhhh oh oh oh oh (Where my people at?)
Here we go
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 ‘cuz i wasn’t cool enough
Trick
Things (Come on)
Things (Let's go...Here we go)
CHORUS
The little things, 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 make me who i am today, go!
You wanna hate me now
But i won’t stop now
‘Cuz i can’t stop now
What, come on, what
Like the time mom went to that institute cuz she was breaking down
(I just can't take it anymore)
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
(I'll see you guys later)
We checked his room his things were gone we didn’t see him no more
Check
Things
Things
Here we go
CHORUS
What, what, what, go
Little things, little things, little things, little things x4
(Ohhhh oh oh oh oh) x4
Ohhhh oh oh oh oh x4
Here we go
And it always seems those little things, they take the biggest part of me
It always seems those little things, they take the biggest part of me
(That's right, keep your head up, that's right)
It always seems those little things, they take the biggest part of me
(Every kid, yo)
And i know that those little things, they make the biggest part of me break down
(That's right, keep your head up)
I’m breaking down
Break down

" Waldorf Worldwide "


Waldorf, Naptown, World Wide, What?

(come on, get up, get up, get up, come on yah, break it down)

Everything'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 alright, Bring it in bring it in what, bring in,the verse

Listen up 'cause there ain't nothin' funny,
I wanna hot girl and a little bit of money,
I wanna 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
With thugs and punks and any other type,
'Cause we sing this song and we sing it all night,

(Chorus)-Everything'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 will be alright, alright
(Chorus Ends)

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 pay 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 tellin' me to wait
Police records said they wouldn't exist,
I wanna know the meaning of a 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' of it
It's GC baby and we're workin' with somethin', I said

(Chorus)(Chorus Ends)

We'll be self-made millionaires,
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 oh yeah thats right,
Everything's gonna be all right 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
But I never said that everything would be ok,
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,
If I fall down would you come around and pick me right up off the ground x2
(Chorus Ends)


I'm unrealistic and narcisistic,
You say I'm selfish and absurd
You try to change me, you try to save me
You say I'm gonna learn, I'm so blind,
I'm out of time, You're so unkind sometimes,
I never lied, I never lied, I never lied...

Cuz I never said that everything would be ok,
And I never said that we would live to see another day

(Chorus)(Chorus Ends)

'Cause everything it'll be ok,
You know we're gonna live to see another day,
Yeah...yeah...
Motivate me...(i wanna get myself out of this)yeah,
Motivate me...(i wanna get myself out of this)yeah,
Motivate me...(i wanna get myself out of this)yeah,
Motivate me...(i wanna get myself out of this)yeah...

Festival Song


I 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 said to me,
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 millionaire,
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
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,

Your future's no future,
Your future's no future,
Your future's no future,
I control my future
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,
(X2)
I'm leavin, I'm leavin, I'm leavin, I'm leavin tonight
****************************************************************
" 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 the stormy weather,

(Chorus)-
And I want to fall in love tonight,
And I remember when you said "everything is gonna be alright"
(Chorus Ends)

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,

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 though it seems,
I just don't care, 'cause now you've gone away,

(Chorus)
*************************************************************
I Heard You "


Today I screwed up again,
You said I could tell in the way you said goodbye,
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
(Chorus Ends)

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)(Chorus Ends)

Today I'll give it one last try,
And then I'll know I 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)(Chorus Ends)
******************************************************************
" 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
Sayin...

(Chorus)-
Let me go, Have some fun,
Well my decision sucks, yeah
But I'm so young
(Chorus Ends)

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 blazed up bloodshot eyes,
There was a plan for us one day we'd realize,

(Chorus)(Chorus Ends)

**********************************************************

" 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,

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,

Why is life such an issue in your mind,
Why are the answers to my problems hard to find, So hard to find

You say that I'm a dreamer,
I say you're a non believer,
Take out the light, take out the light, Start screamin',
I'm dreaming, I'm a dreamer, no one believes me,
And you don't either, So tell me what to do
Take out the light, Take out the light, Take out the light,
Take out the light start screamin', Take out the light,Take out the light,Take out the light,Take out the light start screamin',Take out the light start screamin',Take out the light start screamin',Take out the light start screamin'

" Change "


I am lost in the see-through
I think you've lost yourself to
Throughout all of this confusion
I hope we'll somehow get to you

I practice all the things id say
To tell you how i feel
And when i finally get my chance
It all seems to surreal

Cause from the first time i saw you
I only thought about you.
I didnt know you
I wanted to hold onto
The thing youd never say to me
Cause you said

You cant change the way you feel
(i could never do that, i could never do that)
but you cant tell me this aint real, cause this is real
(and you can see right through that)
In the end its all ive got
So im gunna hold
On and on and on and on
On and on and on and on and on

And now youve got me watchin your eyes
(im watching just to see, watching just to see)
You got me watchin just to see
(if youll ever look at me)
If it goes the way it never will
(but will it ever go, will it ever go my way)
Your eyes are watchin me.

Oh, and now youve got me thinkin bout
the first time that i met you
Standin in a crowded room
But i could only see you
And i hope my words will get through
Cause now i cant forget you
I want to tell you
If only i could reach you
And make you feel this way
But you said

You can change the way you feel
(I could never do that, i could never do that)
But you can tell me this aint real, cause this is real
(and you could see right through that)
In the end its all ive got
So im gonna hold on and on

" Thank You Mom "


Thank you Mom



Always, always, and forever
Always, always, and forever


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, As you would sing songs of praise
And all the times we laughed with you
And all the times you stayed true to us
Now we'll say,

I said I thank you
I will always thank you, More than you would know
Than I could ever show, And I love you, I will always love you
There's nothing I won't do to say these words to you
That you're beautiful forever

Always, always, and forever

You were my mom, You were my dad
The only thing I ever had was you, It's true
And even when the times got hard you were there
To let us know that 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

And 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 will live forever

Forever and ever

Forever and ever

I said I thank you, We'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 I thank you, We'll always thank you
More than you would ever know, Than I could ever show
And I'll love you, We'll always love you, There's nothing I won't do to say these words to you
That you will live forever

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
When you mourn the death of your bloody valentine
The night he died
You mourned the death of your bloody valentine
One last time
Singing...
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
When you mourn the death of your bloody valentine
The night he died
You mourned the death of your bloody valentine
One last time
Singing...
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
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
but I knew I had to do 'cause I'm so in love with you
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
Tonight...

" 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

At my high school
It felt more to me
Like a jail cell, a penitentiary
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
And I don't ever wanna,
I don't ever wanna be

You
Don't wanna be just like you
What I'm sayin' 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 their crowd?
Cause I don't ever wanna
I don't ever wanna be

You
Don't wanna be just like you
What I'm sayin' is
This is the anthem
Throw all your hands up
You
Don't wanna be you

Shake it once, that's fine
Shake it twice, that's okay
Shake it three times, you're playin with yourself again

You
Don't wanna be just like you
What I'm sayin' is
This is the anthem
Throw all your hands up
Ya'll got to feel me, sing if you're with me
You
Don't wanna be just like you (just like you)
This is the anthem
Throw all your hands up
Ya'll got to feel me, sing if you're with me
Another loser anthem (Whoa-oh) [3x]
Another loser anthem

" Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous "


Always see it on TV
or read it in the magazines
celebrities they want sympathy
all they do is piss and moan, inside the rolling stone
talking about how hard life can be
id like to see them spend a week
living life out on the street
I dont think they would survive
if they could spend a day or two walking in someone elses shoes
I think they'd stumble and they'd fall, they would fall
(fall)

lifestyles of the rich and the famous
theyre always complainin, always complainin
if money is such a problem, well they got mansions
think we should rob them

did you know when you were famous you could kill your wife
and theres no such thing as 25-to-life
as long as youve got the cash to pay for Cochren
and did you know if you were caught and you were smoking crack
McDonalds wouldnt even want to take you back
you could always just run for mayor of D.C.
Id like to see them spend a week
living life out on the street
I dont think they would survive
if they could spend a day or two
walking in someone elses shoes
I think theyd stumble and theyd fall
they would fall

lifestyles of the rich and the famous
theyre always complainin
always complainin
if money is such a problem
well they got mansions
think we should rob them
(rob them)

(they would fall...fall)
lifestyles of the rich and the famous
theyre always complainin
always complainin
if money is such a problem
they've got so many problems
think I could solve them
lifestyles of the rich and the famous
well take your clothes, cash, cars, and homes just stop complainin
lifestyles of the rich and famous (x3)

" My Old Man "


I dont know too much about
Too much of my old man
I know he walked right out the door
And we never saw him again
Last I heard he was at the bar
Doing himself in
I know Ive 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
Im telling you do anything you can
So you dont end up just like them
Like them

Monday he woke up and hated life
Drank until Wednesday and left his wife
Thursday through Saturday lost everything
Woke up on Sunday miserable again


I remember baseball games
And working on the car
Told me that he loved me
And that I would go far
Showed me how to work hard
And stick up for myself
I wish he wasnt too hard
To listen to himself

This is the story of my old man
Just like his father before him
Im telling you do anything you can
So you dont end up just like them
Like them

Monday he woke up and hated life
Drank until Wednesday and left his wife
Thursday through Saturday lost everything
Woke up on Sunday miserable again
Again
Again


Someday hell wish that he made things right
Made things right
long for his family and Miss his wife
Miss his wife
Remember the days he had everything
Everything
now hes alone and Miserable again

boys will laugh at girls when theyre not funny

paper or plastic

vacations and shopping sprees

she'll get what she wants if shes willing to please
his type of girl always comes with a fee
hey now, theres nothing for free

girls dont like boys

" Hold On "


this world
this world is cold
but you don&#8217;t
you don&#8217;t have to go
your feeling sad your feeling lonely
and no one seems to care
your mothers gone and your father hits you
this pain you cannot bear
but we all bleed the same way as you do
and we all have the same things to go through

hold on if you feel like letting go
hold on it gets better than you know

the days, you say they're way too long
and your nights, you cant sleep at all
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&#8217;t want to no more

but we all bleed the same way as you do
and we all have the same things to go through

hold on if you feel like letting go
hold on it gets better than you know
don&#8217;t stop looking your one step closer
don&#8217;t stop searching its not over
hold on

what are you looking for
what are you waiting for
do you know what your doing to me
GO AHEAD
what are you waiting for

hold on if you feel like letting go
hold on it gets better than you know
don&#8217;t stop looking your one step closer
don&#8217;t stop searching its not over...hold on

" 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 I signed that goodbye

you know the happiest day of my life
I swear the happiest day of my life
Is the day that I die

Can you feel the cold tonight? (the day that I die)
It sets in, but it's alright (the day that I die)
Darkness falls, I'm letting go (the day that I die)
All alone, but I feel fine

We took a drive and
We drove through DC
To see the places we lived
Long conversations
We talked of old friends
And all the things that we did
The summer nights
Drunken fights
mistakes we made
Did we live it right?

You know the happiest day of my life
I swear the happiest day of my life
Is the day that I die

Can you feel the cold tonight? (the day that I die)
It sets in, but it's alright (the day that I die)
Darkness falls, I'm letting go (the day that I die)
All alone but I feel just fine

you know the happiest day of my life,
I swear the happiest day of my life,
I know the happiest day of my life,
is the day that I die

Can you feel the cold tonight? (the day that I die)
It sets in, but it's alright (the day that I die)
Darkness falls, I'm letting go (the day that I die)
All alone, but I feel fine

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 call nothing
I take what I want, take what i need
You say its wrong but its right for me
I won't look down won't say I'm sorry
I know that only god can judge me

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
Will it all just be the same?

Cause I'm young and i'm hopeless
I'm lost and i know this
I'm going nowhere fast thats what they say
I'm troublesome i've fallen
I'm angry at my father
Its me against this world and i don't care
I don't care

No one in this industry
Understands the life I lead
When I sing about my past
It's not a gimmick not an act
These critics and these trust fund kids
Try to tell me what punk is
But when I see them on the street
They got nothin to say

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
Will it all just be the same?

Cause I'm young and i'm hopeless
I'm lost and i know this
I'm going nowhere fast thats 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, i don't care, now, i don't care

Cause I'm young and i'm hopeless
Im lost and i know this
I'm going nowhere fast thats 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

I spent so many years learning how to survive
Now, Im writing just to let you know Im still alive yeah I'm still alive.

" Moving 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.

But 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 moving on.
We're moving on.
Keep moving on.

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 fallin'
On my head and now I'm callin'
Out to someone else to help me
Make it through.

Not everybody knows, that everybody goes to a better place.
Not everybody knows that everybody could be living their last days
But the hard times will come, and we'll keep moving on.
We're moving on.
Keep moving on.

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 dyin, this is livin.

I Said we're movin on
And we got nothing to prove
To anyone
Cause we'll get through.
We're movin on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on
(Keep movin on)

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 dyin, this is livin.

S.O.S.

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 dont 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
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'm stuck in my own head and I'm oceans away.
Would anybody notice if I chose to stay?
I send an S.O.S. tonight
I wonder if I will survive
How in the hell did I get so far away this time?
So while I'm sitting here
The time of my departire's near.
Say a prayer please someone save me.
Is anybody listening?
Can you hear me when I call?
Shooting signals in the air
Cuz I need somebody's help
I cant make it on my own
So I'm giving up myself
Is anybody listening?
Listening
I'm lost here
I can't make it on my own
I dont want to die alone
I'm so scared
Drowning now
Reaching out
Holding onto everything I love
Crying out
Dying now
Need some help!
Is anybody listening?
Can you hear me when I call?
Shooting signals in the air
I need somebody's help
I can't make it on my own
I'm giving up myself.
Is anybody listening?

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 cord,
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 were 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

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 worst day of your life.

But 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,
Today could be the worst day of,
Today could be the last day of your life.
It's your life, your life.

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 hopes high
i saw this coming still
i don't know why i let you in

i knew it all along
you're so predictable
i knew something would go wrong
(something's always wrong)
so you don't have to call
or say anything at all
you&#8217;re 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 can give it away, give it away
i'm doing everything i should've
and now i'm making the change
i'm living the day
i'm giving back what you gave me
i don't need anything

i knew it all along
you're so predictable
i knew something would go wrong
(something's going wrong)
so you don't have to call
or say anything at all
you&#8217;re so predictable
(so predictable)

everywhere i go, everyone i meet
everytime i try to fall in love
they all wanna know why i'm so broken
why am i so cold?
why i'm 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 are never coming back, never, never....

i knew it all along
you're so predictable
i knew something would go wrong
(something's always wrong)

(so predictable)
you all wanna know what&#8217;s wrong with me
but I know what it is (so predictable)
I&#8217;m ending this right now
************************************************************
WALK AWAY

I made this bed
Choose the life led
And live with my regrets
Sleep with what I said
Could it be the end?
Am I standing on the edge?
Of everything I wanted now&#8230;.

I was afraid
I was afraid

Maybe I&#8217;m just scared
To face the things I&#8217;m fed
It&#8217;s easier to walk away from everything

Separate my soul
With all the things we shared
I&#8217;m falling to pieces now
Say a prayer for me
When you go to bed
I&#8217;m in need of your faith now

I was afraid
I was afraid

Maybe I&#8217;m just scared
To face the things I&#8217;m fed
It&#8217;s easier to walk away from everything
If we could just reset
And live in happiness
Instead of our regrets will set them out of the way
Set them free and out of the way

Pray for me now
I&#8217;m in need of faith
Pray for me now
I&#8217;m in need

Maybe I&#8217;m just scared
To face the things I feel
It&#8217;s easier to walk away from everything
If we could just reset
And live in happiness
Instead of our regrets will set them out of the way

Maybe I&#8217;m just scared
To face the things I feel
It&#8217;s easier to walk away from everything
Walk away from everything
Walk away from everything.
***********************************************************
I JUST WANNA LIVE

I need an alarm system in my house
So I know when people are creepin about
These people are freakin' me out (these days)
It&#8217;s getting hectic everywhere that I go
They won't leave me alone
There&#8217;s things they all wanna know
I&#8217;m paranoid of all the people I meet
Why are they talking to me?
And why can&#8217;t anyone see?

CHORUS:
I just wanna live
Don&#8217;t really care about the things that they say Don&#8217;t really care about what happens to me
I just wanna live

I rock a law suit when I'm goin' to court
A white suit when I'm getting 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&#8217;re saying, &#8220;Now you&#8217;re rich, now you&#8217;re famous&#8221;
Fake ass girls all know your name and
Lifestyles of the rich and the famous
Your first hit aren&#8217;t you ashamed
Of the life, of the life, of the life
We&#8217;re living

I just wanna live I just wanna live
Don&#8217;t really care about the things that they say Don&#8217;t really care about what happens to me
I just wanna live

Stop your messing around boy
Better think of your future
Better make some good plans boy
Said everyone of our teachers
Look out, you better play it safe
Never know what hard times will come your way
We say, where we&#8217;re comin from
We&#8217;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

I just wanna live
I just wanna live
Don&#8217;t really care about the things that they say Don&#8217;t really care about what happens to me I just wanna live
*************************************************************

WOUNDED

Lost and broken,
Hopeless and lonely;
Smilin' on the outside,
But hurt beneath my skin.

My eyes are fadin',
My soul is bleedin'.
I'll try to make it seem okay,
But my fath is wearin' thin.

So help me heal these wounds:
They been open for way too long.
Help me fill this hole
Even though this is not your fault
That I'm open,
And Im bleedin'
All over your brand new rug,
And I need someone to help me sew them up.

I only wanted a magazine.
I only wanted a movie screen.
I only wanted the life I'd read about and dreamed.

And now my mind is open book,
And now my heart is an open wound,
And now my life is an open soul for all to see.

But help me heal these wounds:
They been open for way too long.
Help me fill this hole
Even though this is not your fault
That I'm open,
And I'm bleedin'
All over your brand new rug,
And I need someone to help me&#8212;

So you come along,
I'll push you away,
Then kick and scream for you to stay
'Cause I need someone to help me,
Oh I need someone to help me&#8212;

To help me heal these wounds:
They been open for way too long.
Help me fill this hole
Even though this is not your fault
That I'm open,
And I'm bleedin'
All over your brand new rug,
And I need someone to help me sew them&#8212;
I need someone to help me fill them&#8212;
I need someone to help me close them up.

MEET MY MAKER

This is where I'll meet my maker tonight

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


And tonight
We'll celebrate the end
Of this life
And we'll sing
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Whhooaa aaooohh
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

And tonight
we'll celebrate the end
Of this life
And we'll sing
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Whooaahh ooohhh
It's alright
This is a night like we've began

This is the way
The way I'll meet my maker tonight

FALLING AWAY

And Tonight We Burn Down Everything
We Worked So Hard To Build
The Ashes Will Reign Down On Me
Memories set aflame, Sail Away
What We Said If We Can Make This
Then We Can Break This Into Two Memories


I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away from me again


I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away from me again

And tonight I will be a vessel
with these sails set aflame
let this ocean of our memories
carry me out to sea i will be
fall beneath the crashing waves into my grave
I will sleep

I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away from me again

I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away from me again

If We can make this
then we can break it
if we can build it
then we can burn it down

I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away
I feel you fallin' away from me again


and now you're farther away
now you're farther away
now you're farther away from me again
************************************************************
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


Cause' 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
And we will fight, we'll fight again, fight again


In the back, in the closets of your mind
Thats where skeletons and dirty secrets hide
And I'll rip out my insides
And leave them on display for you tonight


Cause' 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
And we will fight, we'll fight again, fight again
(fight again, fight again)

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
And we will fight, we'll fight again, fight again
Fight again
Cause' everybody wants to hide their secrets away
And that's ok
Nobody wants to stand up to the pain
Fight again

There's a woman crying out tonight
Her world has changed
She asks God why
Her only son has died
And now her daughter cries
She can't sleep at night

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

We believe

We believe
We believe
We believe
We believe
In this love

We are all the same
Human in all our ways and all of 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

We believe
We believe

So this world
Is too much
For you to take
