Track Name: Even Ask a Californian
Verse 1:
I as a homo
I cannot believe
Anything I'm told
Or anything I see
I have to break rules
Cause they're always changing
They're trying to make me
something that just isn't me

Link 1:
Oh what the hell they voting for
When they've already closed that door
They took it back, now they'll want more
They wont be happy 'till we're too sore
to stand up and fight them in this war
They just can’t get passed the core
of what this country was built on
white mans greed & fake salvation

Hook:
Lies, lies
can I ask why
You say this is the life
To a gay guy who has no rights
Its about time you tell me why you get to decide

Chorus:
What’s this with you came so far
And you say you can’t go back
When you know you really can
Even ask a Californian
Boy you look so pitiful
During your contemplation
With all your horrid scars
They run straight up your arms

Go ahead and slit your wrists
Cause I can guarantee
that’s what the people want
When in whole they give me the creeps
I see what they do to you
And I know they do it to me
Yo they’re trying to make us screwed
And then claim that we’re free

Verse 2:
Say I am a faggot
Pretend that’s what he called me
Then we’ll both go to court and
He’ll get an attorney
And then he pleads not guilty
To all of the jury
They’ll slap him on the wrist
And tell him “stop teasing”

Link 2:
Then all the country they can see
The justice the jury showed me
They get free publicity
So everyone will spend money
And all it took was a fag like me
The guy gets off so easily
You bet your ass he’ll come after me
The white mans slave who’s he really?

Hook:
Lies, lies
can I ask why
You say this is the life
To a gay guy who has no rights
Its about time you tell me why you get to decide

Chorus:
What’s this with you came so far
And you say you can’t go back
When you know you really can
Even ask a Californian
Boy you look so pitiful
During your contemplation
With all your horrid scars
They run straight up your arms

Go ahead and slit your wrists
Cause I can guarantee
that’s what the people want
When in whole they give me the creeps
I see what they do to you
And I know they do it to me
Yo they’re trying to make us screwed
And then claim that we’re free

Chorus:
What’s this with you came so far
And you say you can’t go back
When you know you really can
Even ask a Californian
Boy you look so pitiful
During your contemplation
With all your horrid scars
They run straight up your arms

Go ahead and slit your wrists
Cause I can guarantee
that’s what the people want
When in whole they give me the creeps
I see what they do to you
And I know they do it to me
Yo they’re trying to make us screwed
And then claim that we’re free
Track Name: Half the US Population is Gay
In times in times of high hopes for me I'm deemed un-free
and it's so unfair you see...
Track Name: Our Marriage License
Verse 1:
What a world we live in
What a country we share
A place that was given
To everyone everywhere
We humans should be equal
Cause that’s what we all are
Sexual orientation
Shouldn’t determine if ones barred

Hook:
Who the hell is another soul
To tell me who I can love
Or who I can raise my children with
Or who I can marry later on in our relationship

Chorus:
That’s right, Our relationship
That’s right, that’s right
Our marriage license
That’s right, that’s right
Not yours, our lives
That’s right, that’s right
Our lives

Verse 2:
Why’s the color of ones skin
Have to make a difference
Where individuals rank in
Or who’s worthy of the worlds riches
Why are people so ignorant
Why’s the white man so arrogant
I’ll get married to whom I want to
It shouldn’t be a vote for you

Hook:
Who the hell is another soul
To tell me who I can love
Or who I can raise my children with
Or who I can marry later on in our relationship

Chorus:
That’s right, Our relationship
That’s right, that’s right
Our marriage license
That’s right, that’s right
Not yours, our lives
That’s right, that’s right
Our lives

Hook:
Who the hell is another soul
To tell me who I can love
Or who I can raise my children with
Or who I can marry later on in our relationship

Chorus:
That’s right, Our relationship
That’s right, that’s right
Our marriage license
That’s right, that’s right
Not yours, our lives
That’s right, that’s right
Our lives
Track Name: Straight Man's Land
Verse 1:
Being gay aint what it used to be
Sneaking in the shower-room just for a peak
Of guys you wish you had so sweet
Now it’s “Sweat life over gay rights
And mistrusting straight whites
all those happy voting types
Who will ban your ass from this straight man’s land
Just for living life because you live with a guy”

Chorus:
Hey you, yeah you
I don’t give a fuck about you
Hey you, yeah you
I don’t give a fuck about you
Hey you, yeah you
You’re a close-minded fucking shrew
and I ain’t got no time for you
Hey you, yeah you
I ain’t got no time for you

Verse 2:
Being gay used to be a dangerous thing
And it still is if you visit the wrong place
You can check it out on the web at “MatthewsPlace”
Now it’s “Give rights and then yank them right back
Vote in spite of gay life does that make you feel it’s right?
In this straight man’s land how many have to die
Before you get that through your heads?

Chorus:
Hey you, yeah you
I don’t give a fuck about you
Hey you, yeah you
I don’t give a fuck about you
Hey you, yeah you
You’re a close-minded fucking shrew
and I ain’t got no time for you
Hey you, yeah you
I ain’t got no time for you
Track Name: Johnny Boy
Intro:
Okay I've got one for you
It's tragic it really is
It's amazing that people can do that
But it's so
So amazing and wonderful
To have them
I’d like to tell you now about
Johnny Boy

Verse 1:
There was a boy and his
sexy name was Johnny
And Johhny was a boy that
everybody was in love with
With his hot body face,
and whit he was amazing
So it’s no surprise that he
was adored by all of the sexes
And although he didn’t have a
way with words, I think it’s
how he said them Johnny’d
never say anything too upsetting

Chorus:
Until he told someone no when
they told him bout their feelings
He was only one boy
Johnny couldn’t make everybody happy
Oh Johnny Johnny please give me a shot
You’re the only opportunity that I’ve got
You’re the only boy that I want
Oh Johnny Boy

You broke my fucking heart
You fine-ass bastard
I love you, you dick head
Ut-oh

Verse 2:
He was the kind of guy who didn’t
even have to try to look good
It came natural to him it’s like God
sent him as a gift to everyone
Johnny’s so hansom he’s on
everybody’s MySpace & FaceBook
And in every single locker in every
school around the world with his good looks
But don’t let the looks draw you in
And whatever you do
don’t get attached to Johnny
He’ll rip your fucking heart right out your chest
but not cause he’s mean, he’s just wanted

Chorus:
Until he told someone no when
they told him bout their feelings
He was only one boy
Johnny couldn’t make everybody happy
Oh Johnny Johnny please give me a shot
You’re the only opportunity that I’ve got
You’re the only boy that I want
Oh Johnny Boy
Track Name: Wanna See My Mother Cry
Verse 1:
Momma
why did you throw it all away
and choose to end your life
In such a terrible way
and I can't live my life with out you
I just die inside a little more each day
with out you
and help was only a call away
I don't know why you pulled
the trigger that day

Hook 1:

I just die inside with out you

Chorus 1:
And I still remember the call that night
I can’t live my life without you

Goodbye momma I love you
and I’ll never ever forget you
Never forget

Verse 2:
You are the one who put the
sparkle in my mothers eyes
And for that I’ll forever keep
you in my heart and in my mind
And you’ve done so much for
your family in tough times yeah
It’s like you and you alone are our
family’s angel sent from heaven above

Hook 2:
Daddy-o

(no I don’t)
I don’t wanna have to see my
aunt’s and uncles say goodbye
(no I don’t x3)

Chorus 2:
And you’re like
our wisdom our savior our love
And you’re like

Track Name: Two Hot Boys Means Love
Verse 1:
I’m contemplating while I’m in this mess
Why did you come along

OMG fucking stress

Chorus:
You are my all

Track Name: I Have a Knife
Intro:
A close friend of mine
from the internet
had actually written lyrics.
So, I decided I would put them to music
And give them a melody.
Here’s that song now.

Verse 1:
Can somebody give me a reason to live?
I've gave all that I got now I've nothing left to give
This insanity that goes on inside my brain
Causes me nothing but nonstop pain
And I’m numb to the joy to the laughter and all the bliss
I once thought people were born crazy like this
But I’ve since discovered that is just what life does
Oh my life the life that once was

Chorus:
What is my life
I’m trying to decide
Why I’m I still alive
I have a knife
What is my life
I’m trying to decide
Why I’m I still alive
I have a knife
What is my life
I’m trying to decide
Why I’m I still alive
I have a knife
What is my life
I’m trying to decide
Why I’m I still alive
I have a knife

Verse 2:
Why don't they see me why don’t they seem to fucking care
If they'd only see me they’d see that I have so much to share
Boredom and worry depression and such unhealthy hate
Non-stop emotions internal feelings is this my fate?
Once I had everything well all that I needed to make it through the day
Now I have nothing but memories that give me a headache
Thoughts of what once was
memories of the past they've all become
A part of me that’s the only way I last

Chorus:
What is my life
I’m trying to decide
Why I’m I still alive
I have a knife
What is my life
I’m trying to decide
Why I’m I still alive
I have a knife
What is my life
I’m trying to decide
Why I’m I still alive
I have a knife
What is my life
I’m trying to decide
Why I’m I still alive
I have a knife

Bridge:
And who knows what tomorrow brings us
Where or what we’ll become
Just thinkin’ ‘bout it leaves me quite numb

Chorus:
What is my life
I’m trying to decide
Why I’m I still alive
I have a knife
What is my life
I’m trying to decide
Why I’m I still alive
I have a knife
What is my life
I’m trying to decide
Why I’m I still alive
I have a knife
What is my life
I’m trying to decide
Why I’m I still alive
I have a knife
Track Name: I Revoke Insanity
Verse 1:
I gave my everything
And I gave it again
And I’d wait impatiently
I mean after all what are you expecting
I live right here but you are so far away
And I’ve invited you here for a thousand + days

Chorus:
And you, you never got me then
So you’ll never get me now
what makes you think that you’ll win
I will never ever bow
to this hell you put me in
I will sit here on the edge
On the outskirts of your town
Waiting for my age old friend
I have never ever been
All the way abandoned
I have always been picked up
At the edge of sanity
I will never end up fucked
Trust me that you will see
You have no place in me
I revoke insanity

Verse 2:
I’m so unstable
But it never does last
I know I’m talking crazy
And trust I know I sound it, but it’s real
I am half gone but that means I’m half here
As I lay me down I’ll try not to fear

Chorus:
And you, you never got me then
So you’ll never get me now
what makes you think that you’ll win
I will never ever bow
to this hell you put me in
I will sit here on the edge
On the outskirts of your town
Waiting for my age old friend
I have never ever been
All the way abandoned
I have always been picked up
At the edge of sanity
I will never end up fucked
Trust me that you will see
You have no place in me
I revoke insanity

Bridge:
Why was I left to forfeit or left for dead back then
Well since then I’ve learned my way around the edge

Chorus:
And you, you never got me then
So you’ll never get me now
what makes you think that you’ll win
I will never ever bow
to this hell you put me in
I will sit here on the edge
On the outskirts of your town
Waiting for my age old friend
I have never ever been
All the way abandoned
I have always been picked up
At the edge of sanity
I will never end up fucked
Trust me that you will see
You have no place in me
I revoke insanity
Track Name: They Used Them to Get Michael's Fortune
Intro:
Shocking news. This just in. There have been several reports of Michael Jackson being spotted in and around the Los Angles area. Was the supposed death of the King Of Pop just a hoax? Is the King of Pop making a comeback and his alleged death is just a way to promote a new album?

Verse 1:
They fucking loved him. He was everyone’s man!
Back when he wrote Billy Jean and all the thriller tracks
Or even before, like when he wrote his first solo song Ben
He ain’t dead yet he’s just creepin’
all of you loved him and everyone was Bad
They couldn’t help but notice his skin lightenin’
People started to question why a grown-ass man would build a Neverland
He ain’t dead you best believe that

Chorus:
Oh Pepsi-Cola let him go
No one sported pedophilia
People got angry they followed a perv
Parent’s got greedy its their kids they hurt
They used them to get Michaels fortune
Yeah they used them to get Michaels fortune
Yes they used them to get Michaels fortune
Yes they used them to get Michaels fortune

Verse 2:
Michael’s skin turned white there was no denying that
Because of vitiligo not cause he hated being black
He chose not to live disfigured and he made his skin match
He ain’t dead yet he’s just creepin’

His dad would tell him that he had a big nose
He wanted to make it smaller but then it fell off you know how it goes
He tried to fix his face, repeated attempts oh oh
He ain’t dead yo you best believe that

Chorus:
Oh Pepsi-Cola let him go
No one sported pedophilia
People got angry they followed a perv
Parent’s got greedy its their kids they hurt
They used them to get Michaels fortune
Yes they used them to get Michaels fortune
Yes they used them to get Michaels fortune
Yes they used them to get Michaels fortune

RAP:
So it ain’t no surprise he became a recluse
He stopped going out and granting interviews
He lived alone on his ranch and stayed in his room
He wanted some damn peace just like eryone of you
To be left alone, and resort to his youth
he hung out with kids gods honest truth
But not cause he wanted to suck a little boys dick
But cause them little boys didn’t treat him like shit!
He started wearing masks to shield his flaws from idiots
Same thing you would do to hide all your craters and zits
But you called him Waco-Jacko so you made him like this
Poor guy it’s awesome you think he’s dead when he isn’t
He wanted to show his baby to his fans in the crowd
So he picked him up and then lifted him up so proud
He didn’t hurt his baby but you chose to be freaked out
It’s you and the media and your stupid fucking mouth
How people can be so phony at a computer in their house
Step out into the streets with that mouth you get beet down
Oh shit I’m out of beats I guess that means I’m out

Chorus:
Oh Pepsi-Cola let him go
No one sported pedophilia
People got angry they followed a perv
Parent’s got greedy its their kids they hurt
They used them to get Michaels fortune
Yeah they used them to get Michaels fortune
Yes they used them to get Michaels fortune
Yes they used them to get Michaels fortune
Track Name: Feel it Too
Verse 1:
I, I always call you
when I’m running late
But I, I don’t expect from you
the same curtsy
No I, I don’t believe you
when you say that you love me
So I, I’ll never ask you
to go out of your way

Hook:
No I’ll wait here
for a long time and pray
one day your heart will be mine

Chorus:
One day I know that
you’ll call me sweetheart
Some day I feel you’ll
appreciate my art
At some point I have faith
you’re going to know how I feel
Because you my dear will feel it too

Verse 2:
I’ll let you know when I’m
tired and ready for bed
But you usually beat me there
So I, I don’t expect you to
Feel the same urges I do
Or do for me what I do for you

Hook:
No I’ll wait here
For a long time and pray
one day your heart will be mine

Chorus:
One day I know that
you’ll call me sweetheart
Some day I feel you’ll
appreciate my art
At some point I have faith
you’re going to know how I feel
Because you my dear will feel it too

Bridge:
I remember when
you used to talk to me.
I remember when
you used to look at me.
I remember when
you’d go to sleep with me
Oh so long ago

Chorus:
One day I know that
you’ll call me sweetheart
Some day I feel you’ll
appreciate my art
At some point I have faith
you’re going to know how I feel
Because you my dear will feel it too

On this journey of lonesomeness
On this journey of loneliness
No ones ever realized that I really am alone

Chorus:

Track Name: I'm Glad
Verse 1:
So you’re not here now
I will get along
Fly away from me
And I wont wait up too long
Save your breath
Don’t use it on me
Don’t waste your time
Cause I’m not listening
Do us both a favor
get the hell out of here

Hook:
Cause now now you’re gone
You’re you’re gone
Now now you’re gone
Now now you’re gone
And I didn’t even notice
Now now you’re gone
I know you’re gone
I know you’re gone
Now you’re gone
And I didn’t even blink

Chorus:
I’m glad I didn’t love you
I’m glad I didn’t need you
I’m glad I didn’t want you
I’m glad I’ll never miss you
Or else I couldn’t forgive you
For every single thing you di-didn’t do
And for every single thing you missed too
So I’m glad you didn’t want me too

Verse 2:
You never cared about me
But I never even cared
Lived a life outside Bradley
Just know I was still happy
Bite your tongue
It’ll do not one bit of good
Don’t cross the line
That’s a fair warning
Do yourself a favor
Don’t go making yourself another one

Hook:
Cause now now you’re gone
You’re you’re gone
Now now you’re gone
Now now you’re gone
And I didn’t even notice
Now now you’re gone
I know you’re gone
I know you’re gone
Now you’re gone
And I didn’t even blink

Chorus:
I’m glad I didn’t love you
I’m glad I didn’t need you
I’m glad I didn’t want you
I’m glad I’ll never miss you
Or else I couldn’t forgive you
For every single thing you di-didn’t do
And for every single thing you missed too
So I’m glad you didn’t want me too

Bridge:
Why the hell you look so glum
Aren’t I right about this problem
You can only be gone for so long
Before you’re just a dead beat bum
I’m so very glad that there is no us

Verse 3:
I saw you look before you left
I realized you wanted something less
than all I gave which was my all
so go ahead I won't be there when you fall
across the line we're done this time
but I’m still fine I’ll look away ahead another
day to see it's not so bad actually I’m glad

Hook:
Cause now now you’re gone
You’re you’re gone
Now now you’re gone
Now now you’re gone
And I didn’t even notice
Now now you’re gone
I know you’re gone
I know you’re gone
Now you’re gone
And I didn’t even blink

Chorus:
I'm glad i didn't love you
I threw all my feelings away
I'm glad i didn't need you
You had every chance to stay
I'm glad i didn't want you
Now I don't have to shed my tears
I'm glad i'll never miss you
I'm glad cause you were never here
Track Name: Suddenly Gone
Verse 1:
“He was the boy who everyone loved”
That’s what they’d all say to everyone
They’d even tell you if you asked them
“He was the one”
He never failed to provide to folks and stun

Chorus:
So tell me where was everyone
Where had everyone gone
“Hello” he’d say to anyone
But everyone around was suddenly gone

Verse 2:
He was the boy that Everybody put off
That’s why the boy lost all his faith in everyone
They made promises but hesitated far too long
They really failed him and let him down far too much

Chorus:
So tell me where was everyone
Where had everyone gone
“Hello” he’d say to anyone
But everyone around was suddenly gone

Chorus:
So tell me where was everyone
Where had everyone gone
“Hello” he’d say to anyone
But everyone around was suddenly gone

Bridge
Was it a surprise
He finally lost it all
These aren’t resilient times
He’s now 2 inches less tall

Chorus:
So tell me where was everyone
Where had everyone gone
“Hello” he’d say to anyone
But everyone around was suddenly gone
