Track Name: Opposite of Me
Opposite of Me
Verse 1:
You’re starting it again, You’re always pissed out of control.
I will be right here with you, But this sure seems to take its toll.
The last thing I would ever want is for karma to catch up with you.
Step back, see what you lack and reflect on the things that you thought you knew
PreChorus:
Think about what you’re doing, and the lives that you will ruin
Chorus:
Not too late, contemplate to
Try and recover from the things you discovered are wrong
Not too late, Not too late
You want it well then you got it.
All on your own, you’re still unknown
You’ve got something to prove, but you’re not gonna lose your way
All on your own, All on your own
You want it well then you got it.
Not too late.
Verse 2:
Talk shit about us again, But it don’t phase me I’m alright.
You’re not the first or the last, it turns out I’m not always right.
I may be wrong on this, But the more you drink the worse it gets.
The next time you open up, Wait until the sun, wait until the sun sets.
PreChorus:
Think about what you’re doing, and the lives in which you’ll ruin
Chorus:
Not too late, contemplate to
Try and recover from the things you discovered are wrong
Not too late, Not too late
You want it well then you got it.
All on your own, still unknown
You’ve got something to prove, but you’re not gonna lose your way
All on your own, All on your own
You want it well then you got it.
Not too late.
Bridge/Solo:
Chorus:
Not too late, contemplate to
Try and recover from the things you discovered are wrong
Not too late, Not too late
You want it well then you got it.
All on your own, still unknown
You’ve got something to prove, but you’re not gonna lose your way
All on your own, All on your own
You want it well then you got it.
Not too late.
It’s not, Not too late
Track Name: Let's Be Frank
Let’s Be Frank
Verse 1:
This has to be the worse feeling
I have ever felt before
It’s clear I’m letting go
So easily despite how hard I try
PreChorus:
I was holding on and you were ready to go
We didn’t have the strength to let each other know
Chorus:
I’m trying to find you but you’re nowhere to be found
You’re already gone and you are wasted
I want to see you but you just won’t come around
As life goes on its hard to face it
Verse 2:
I’ll hesitate at first to tell you
That I hope for better now
Not just for you but for me
If we separate I hope it makes you happy
PreChorus:
You would never show up when you did you’d be late
It doesn’t change the past we made
Chorus:
I’m trying to find you but you’re nowhere to be found
You’re already gone and you are wasted
I want to see you but you just won’t come around
As life goes on its hard to face it
Bridge:
I’m not mad I just miss you
I’m sorry for the shit you’ve been through
Chorus x2:
I’m trying to find you but you’re nowhere to be found
You’re already gone and you are wasted
I want to see you but you just won’t come around
As life goes on its hard to face it
Track Name: Not Just a Song
Not Just A Song
Just one more day
Verse 1:
It’s like the pressure starts to build up on my chest
As if I need to react quick or let the flames spread and burn
I look out in the distance, all I see is you smiling back
What would it take to stop you, from creating all this mess
PreChorus:
If you thought we’d let this go to waste
You were mistaken
Chorus:
From nothing to a situation
Clock keeps ticking on, you keep tripping over everything
I pick up on the words you’re saying
So what I knew it all along
I pick up on the words you’re saying
I was wrong
Verse 2:
And now I have so much to say without anger in my way
I know I cannot cower, leaving words out turns them sour
If it all was just a song expect emotion to prolong
In the end I feel no pain, like it or not I will never change
PreChorus:
If you thought we’d let this go to waste
You were mistaken
Chorus:
From nothing to a situation
Clock keeps ticking on, you keep tripping over everything
I pick up on the words you’re saying
So what I knew it all along
I pick up on the words you’re saying
I was wrong
Bridge/Solo:
Chorus:
I can’t take back this aggravation
Clock keeps ticking on you keep tripping over everything
From nothing to a situation
Clock keeps ticking on, you keep tripping over everything
I pick up on the words you’re saying
So what I knew it all along
I pick up on the words you’re saying
I was wrong
The words you’re saying I already knew
The way you hate the way I am
It’s up to you
Track Name: Best Way To Kill Your Past
Best Way To Kill Your Past
Goodbye!
Verse 1:
My heart is cold but your blood is black
This is the end there’s no turning back
I see you now and you don’t seem the same
No self-respect you don’t have no shame
Rock bottom, low as it gets
Listen close I’ve got no regrets
PreChorus:
I can’t even think right now
What did you even think and how did you decide
Chorus:
Didn’t get the message I guess I just closed my eyes
The future it changes as the past begins to die
How could you do this I will never realize
To start it and end it at the same time (At the same time)
Verse 2:
Anger flows rushing to the brain
I think of you, I think of a train
That’s off its tracks and not coming back
Lie and cheat right behind my back
You wanted more than the average life
Cut out my heart with a fucking knife
PreChorus:
I can’t even think right now
What did you even think and how did you decide
Chorus:
Didn’t get the message I guess I just closed my eyes
The future it changes as the past begins to die
How could you do this I will never realize
To start it and end it at the same time (At the same time)
Bridge:
How could you lie
I had to try over a thousand times
Now it’s my time
To make you die in my mind
Chorus:
Didn’t get the message I guess I just closed my eyes
The future it changes as the past begins to die
How could you do this I will never realize
To start it and end it at the same time (At the same time)
End:
You lied, I will kill you in my mind
Track Name: Cedar Point Burns
Cedar Point Burns
Verse 1:
I never imagined the way this turned out, the way I ran away
Live with the lies, verbal punishing putdowns, throw it in my face
Delay my fate let me go, Let me find my own escape
I found my place somewhere without a family, but here I feel safe
Chorus:
When I forget where I came from
I’ll remind you once again I’m glad this had to end
When all you know is wrong, and you have to stay strong
I’ll try and change my ways and pretend it was just a phase
Verse 2:
I’m not what you hoped for, the prodigal son who crawls back to beg
The hurt you inflicted, my love for you lifted, memories can plague
Now I let go, wasn’t easy but more than holding on
Leave me alone, never forget we are too far gone
Chorus:
When I forget where I came from
I’ll remind you once again I’m glad this had to end
When all you know is wrong, and you have to stay strong
I’ll try and change my ways and pretend it was just a phase
Bridge/Solo:
Chorus x2:
When I forget where I came from
I’ll remind you once again I’m glad this had to end
When all you know is wrong, and you have to stay strong
I’ll try and change my ways and pretend it was just a phase
I’m falling down, back down again
I’m falling down, back down again
I’m falling down, I’m falling down
Track Name: Quitter
Quitter
Verse:
You expect perfection painted painfully
With each action I take, I break casually
To comfort your pride. (Despite my side)
You never really believed in anything at all
You were fucking with my mind
Now it’s my time.
Pre-Chorus:
Knock down the walls or just fade away
Walking carcass that filled space.
Work it out or walk away
Rather someone care than a familiar face.
Chorus:
So long, say goodbye to yesterday
Another turning point, another way
You left us dry but we’re okay
We saw it coming almost everyday
Verse:
Now and then I would bend to relate to you
But hesitate cuz I hate the things you do
But I respect what you’ve been through. (But I’m not through)
We needed you more but you’ll never know
We paid a debt that we still owe
But the truth is still unknown. (You’d rather be unknown)
Pre-Chorus:
Knock down the walls or just fade away
Walking carcass that filled space.
Work it out or walk away
Rather someone care than a familiar face.
Chorus:
So long, say goodbye to yesterday
Another turning point, another way
You left us dry but we’re okay
We saw it coming almost everyday
Bridge:
Time may change but we’re still here
We’re never gonna die
Final Chorus:
Where did we go wrong when all we do is fight
Your anger and your arrogance took years from my life
Track Name: Bad Breath
Bad Breath
Intro:
You better shut that mouth before I do it for you
It’s time for you to bite that tongue before I help you eat those words
Verse 1:
Stop running your mouth, it’s sad
To see a grown man crawl
We all know that you’re all talk
When you’re feeling small
Chorus:
It’s not my fault that I keep passing through your mind
Drives you crazy
You seem jealous of us, guess we’ll be the
Envy that you need
Verse 2:
Wait, blue in the face, just breath
Before you pass out
I’ll sit back and watch, laughing
As you moan and pout
Chorus:
It’s not my fault that I keep passing through your mind
Drives you crazy
You seem jealous of us, guess we’ll be the
Envy that you need
Bridge:
I went from being your free ride
To becoming the thorn in your side
You gotta get it or get right or get gone
This is all I am, this is all I have, this is all that you ever wanted
I will sing it out so you can heart it
Cause I can say it better than you feel it
Breakdown:
I do this for myself
Nothing can stop me now X2
Track Name: 8th and 16th
8th and 16th
Verse 1:
We’d laugh and joke life to the limit
We thought that we couldn’t fail
Constant parties that would never end
Till we finally lost a friend
I guess sometimes it’s better when people change
Chorus:
I still remember how you never turned away
When I needed you by my side
I was all alone
But how can you do this
It’s crazy to me
How you could give up almost everything
You worked your life for
You hit the ground and never got up
That’s when I knew you were gone
That’s when I knew you were gone
But I will never turn my back away
Never turn my back away
Verse 2:
Loyal friends are harder to find
I’m learning this day by day
The ones that mean the most eventually move on
But you never forget them when they’re gone
I guess sometimes it’s better when people change
Chorus:
I still remember how you never turned away
When I needed you by my side
I was all alone
But how can you do this
It’s crazy to me
How you could give up almost everything
You worked your life for
You hit the ground and never got up
That’s when I knew you were gone
That’s when I knew you were gone
But I will never turn my back away
Never turn my back away
Bridge:
We still miss you more than you’ll ever know
You decided it was your time to go X2
