Senior Year 03:31
Well it's friday night at the football game, the crowd is cheering one more time for me, and everything is going fine so far but life is just ten yards away a football play that goes on three but when you don't know me and you don't see me the ball springs loose you're alone and scrambling once again you're looking for that open man today i'm right beside you screaming you can do this no one seems to understand i'm not afraid to take a stand and when you don't know me it makes no difference what you say you are wrong and maybe you don't wanna say will i just get sacked someday i do this all because of you yeah tired and bleeding it's tough i will go on it makes me wanna sing this song and maybe you don't wanna say dreams come true don't they?

Betrayed 03:27
How could you take my girl away? When i told you everyday but you took her anyway From me I stand alone heartbroken Not one word is ever spoken And there's nothing left to say to you And everywhere i go You're stuck inside my head Why can't i get you out? I guess i can't let go The memories i have are burning out again And i would never walk away Forever I would stay But you took her anyway from me How come you messed with my girl You betrayed the trust that I had with you And i would never do the same to you I could never see the truth From underneath is hidden in his lies I could never see the truth From underneath he's taking her from me There was always something in the way you looked at me All I've got are memories I find them hard to keep I love the way it used to be How can you take from me Crossed in two i stand alone Betrayed Because of you Because of you
3.
when I woke up this mornin', I knew what i had to find, somewhere there exists a melody that'll make you change your mind, so I got down to business, the best that I could do, still nothing from these lonely foreign lips could be good enough for you, if you wanna run, put the pedal to the metal, tell me that we're done, whistling like a kettle, know you think you've won, but we've still gotta score to settle, so step on the pedal that means metal if we had just one minute alone, I know what i would say
4.
I've been cheating on you ever since we broke up I've been dreaming about you ever since I woke up Now my feeling's disappearing ever since you spoke up So I'll devise a plot to break your heart Think up a plan that I'll never carry out What's wrong with you? Tell me now What should i do? CHORUS Don't let me down I couldn't take much more of your love Don't let me down I couldn't take much more of you love So i asked you to the show but i knew you'd never show up Came to my birthday party just to tell me i should grow up And then i see another girl and i think I'm gonna throw up! So I'll devise a plan to make you mad Dirty tricks to come back and take command I'll win your hand We'll hijack a plane and we're never gonna land CHORUS Don't let me down I couldn't take much more of your love Don't call me up I'm so sick and tired of being down Don't let me down I'm so sick and tired of hanging up Don't call me up I couldn't take much more of your love

Roundabout 03:03
1 A.M., the club is closing down. it's been a long day We're on a great big road trip from coast to coast The map is in our hands, wave goodbye and off we go Free from normal life This adventure is our history, we're out here on our own Whoa, here we go We'll never get there, we'll never get there If we didn't, who would care? 6 A.M., the sky is turning light. Wish I could go home LA to Salt Lake in one long night The sun is coming up but my body feels cold inside What am I doing? This adventure is our history, we're out here on our own Then there are times when I feel so alone and no one knows who I am Then there are times when Gabe and Mike and Dom are there to be friends Then there are times when The kids we meet mean more to us Than we ever thought they could Driving all day, driving all night Mike bought some coffee, Dom got in a fight Sleeping on the floor, driving through the snow Sweaty, smoky venues at every single show El Diablo is our home Still one question: where did Gabe go?

No sense trying to impress faces emotionless Contact with others is unheard of When you bump into me there's no apology What is it that you're so afraid of? You're staring straight through me When will we gain back the trust we've been breaking How can we stop all the clocks we've been racing Thought that we had grown, now we're all alone Seems that time isn't all that we're wasting What are you gonna do if I try to talk to you Walking away won't solve your problem Can't you be a human being and show common courtesy A cold shoulder isn't what I'm here for Does anybody care?

I'm Black 02:50

With Christmas upon us it's time to be honest and follow my dreams and to face a life of delusion and gender confusion no longer will be the case I never wanted army men or basketballs, I only wanted pantyhose and Barbie dolls And dressing up in mother's clothing. My whole life I've been feeling only feminine It always seemed so useless trying to be a man Now that's a ghost of Christmas past Now it feels like the very first time, 'cause it's going to be the very first time, that Christmas feels right to me. And I know that I'm looking good Just like a real girl should- It's my first Christmas as a woman A doctor reconstructed my genitals And now I'm waiting underneath the mistletoe for a guy who could love a girl like me. I took the hormones and I got my breasts This season's gonna be the best to me. I won't have to tuck it behind me Since I got my brand new vagina It's my first Christmas as a woman. Chop if off! Chop if off! Chop if off! My penis, chop it off It's no use to me. Cut it off! Chop it off! Chop it off! My penis, cut it off so I can finally be A Woman... Now I'm finally happy 'cause I made my goal to be a post operation transsexual. now I'm a pretty lady Now it feels like the very first time, 'cause it's going to be the very first time, that Christmas feels right to me. 'cause I know that I'm looking good Just like a real girl should- It's my first Christmas as a woman

Don't leave me, not like this I've longed for you since our first kiss There was a time when I thought You'd care for me no matter what Why did you give up? I'll never know I know it was hard. All we had was the phone Although we had pain, I can tell you it's better than being alone I thought you wanted this I hope so because you broke my heart for this I curse my thoughts,they favor you So does my heart. I curse that too. With all it's pain and all it's cost Who says it's best to have loved and lost? And this is my heartfelt goodbye, You hello hell. Although you may forget, you'll be with me till death. Because no matter what comes good or bad, You never stop loving someone. Don't think you've ruined me. I am stronger for this. But I'll still think of you After you forget I exist. Although I'll try to forget to save pain, You'll always be inside my head.

Bankruptcy 03:56
I've never been so poor. I bought something I can't afford Most people can relate with a new car but this is more value by far. It's not a material thing, it's not something i can easily explain. It's about her i could never forget wondering daily how she got me in debt. Will I ever be the one and if I was, would I be her last? What a price I paid, fall in love with you. What a price I paid, fall in love with you. What a price I paid, fall in love with you. My credit is shot, but no worries, I've got what I want. I know that i don't deserve you, but it's better than being apart. Maybe someday, I'll change my ways. The only thing that separates me from the rest, are all of the lies I have told. Will I ever be the one and if I was, would I be her last? What a price I paid, fall in love with you. What a price I paid, fall in love with you. What a price I paid, fall in love with you. I've never been so poor, I bought something I can't afford. Most people can relate with the problems, but I've got more problems by far. Will I ever be the one and if I was, would I be her last? What a price I paid, fall in love with you. What a price I paid, fall in love with you. What a price I paid, fall in love with you. What a price I paid. What a price I paid.

Jukebox 86 02:31
Take me to a place where only happiness is all around 1986 is where we'd go Sit out side with all my best friends fighting over baseball cards A thought of nothing to worry about Come around the block and check the club house no one's home I'll make sure you enjoy your stay anyway So how are you? Doing fine, well, things have been worse by the year Mom and dad broke up and we all grew up but I stayed the same kid Jukebox full of memories, I lost when they were packed away Lucky to have found them in my mind What happened to the excitement we once had that disappeared? Something I am destined yet to find Come around the block and check the club house no one's home I'll make sure you enjoy your stay anyway So how are you? Doing fine, well, things have been worse by the year Mom and dad broke up and we all grew up but I stayed the same kid Themes from old TV shows Broken radio Every time I hear them It takes me back home It takes me away

Yesterday I Called You Up Instead Of A Date I Got Turned Down It's Been A While And Nothing New A Hard Time Searching For That True And Never Ending Love It's Time I Gave It Up No Time For Me To Be A Teenager These Games Are Not Worth Going Back There For I'm Out Of Broken Hearts To Give To You I Guess I'll Save Them All For Someone New Opportunity Exists You're Taking Advantage Of The Risk This Next Journey Starts Alone Till I Get Her I'll Be Gone And Away You Won't Hear From Me No Time For Me To Be A Teenager These Games Are Not Worth Going Back There For I'm Out Of Broken Hearts To Give To You I Guess I'll Save Them All For Someone New No Time For Me To Be A Teen No Time For Me To Be A Teenager

Jeff Brown 02:56
I don't know why I never did anything to you And i know, i can't comply To the way that you think that i should play my songs Never bother'd to take the time to watch me You just criticized with every line You said so many bad things about me I think you'r just musically uninclined And your still spreading it around, And you keep writing it all down And i'll find you, with your review And i'll make you apologize to me Just say you're sorry, for your story I don't think that it was very fair of you You Jeff brown'd me You said my songs are not all that complicated The chorus's, just seem to be phrases Shouted out, twenty times in a row What'a you know I don't expect you to understand my feelings Cause your accusing me of stealing Power chords from a screeching weasel song You know they'd never let me play that long You Jeff brown'd me too [repeat]

Unlucky seventeen, already handed plans for the future Glamour obsessed, told how to dress, and shown how to think And I don't have a job, but I can show you how to be a slob So many days, wasted and glazed Sometimes I laugh aloud as I think about, You asking me "Please can you help?" Can't help my self I'm not your savior, I'm not who you want me to be A cowardly mistake I've made so many times before, refusing to break Cut my losses ties them with you, like a good boy I'll pretend And promise not to do it again Do you remember when, life was so simple and permanent? Everyone's changed, "Everyone's cool", Everyone sucks But I can't seem to complain, Exciting and new is just not there You're getting scared I'm not your savior, never thought I was anyway I'm a void with empty promises that backs out late Never said I'd change, taking back the words that we spoke Like a fuel tank running dry, you'll believe it when I choke

Make it Last 01:39
There's a lot on my mind So I guess that I'll take it one thing at a time, Still sometimes I can't help but wonder why... I sit around all day And I waste my whole damn life away, Still thinkin' bout' just what there is to say. (chorus #1) should I say goodnight? ...got to bed, turn out the fucking light And leave you shining in the past. Should I try and forget? ? ...even though next week it's something I'll regret. Or, should I try and make it last? I think about the day When I felt you'd throw it all away To try to make me feel like I'm the one. You were my best friend, And I never ever thought those days would end But now it seems like they are gone (chorus #2) what more can I say? ...i never wanted it to be this way, And where the hell is yesterday? ...we sure had a blast! I'm sorry that we're living in the past, Should we try and make it last? (repeat chorus #1)

I think that we're lost again And this looks like the shitty side of town We're running out of gas And the sun is going Down, down, down Time to turn around And start heading back In the right direction now, But my map is upside down. I just want to make it to the show, But I don't think that we're gonna go, I can see the headline now "Four punks are dead again We know you don't care, but, film at ten. And, now on to sports." Things are looking bleak, Everybody thinks that I'm a geek. We're hiding all our cash, My fingernails are digging in the dash. "Why didn't you ask for directions? What Cracker Jack box did you find your License in? You stupid piece of shit I'll never ride with you again!" I just want to make it to the show, But I don't think that we're gonna go. "Just pull over and let me drive!" Everybody wants me dead. I think the club is up ahead. It feels good to be alive!
