Track Name: Show it Off Like a Sunburn
Verse 1:
I wish that I had a body like Katrina
Yeah just like Katrina’s
Yeah Like Katrina does
I would look like one of them hos
and I’d wear the hottest hoochie mama clothes
and long platinum blonde locks
Just like Katrina’s

Hook:
Show it off
Slinky wear it
Wear it slinky
Show it off

Chorus:
Having the right curves
will give me worth
And the truth hurts
just like a sun burn

Verse 2:
I wish that I was as skinny as Katrina
Yeah girl is really thin
I’m talking crack-headed
But I would have a really hot boyfriend
and he’d get with me in a New York minute
and we’d get our freak on
I’m talking all the time nonstop

Hook:
Show it off
Slinky wear it
Wear it slinky
Show it off

Chorus:
Having the right curves
will give me worth
And the truth hurts
just like a sun burn

Bridge:
I am torn
Cause I just can’t
bring myself
to stick my finger
down my throat
and gag

Chorus:
Having the right curves
will give me worth
And the truth hurts
just like a sun burn

Hook:
Show it off
Slinky wear it
Wear it slinky
Show it off

Chorus:
Having the right curves
will give me worth
And the truth hurts
just like a sun burn
Track Name: Gave Joshie Hope (Give 'em Hope 5)
Verse 1:
Joshie was a good man
But no one understood him
Joshie wrote his feelings
in a book of poems
Joshie had the wisdom
But he never had no children
Had a reoccurring nightmare
he’d live life all alone

Hook:
And when he did
He laid down
He tried to cope
And turn his life around

Chorus:
He’d have lived and died his life alone
had he not gone out and got himself a backbone
You should know that I’m not the one to boast
But I must say I’m the one that gave Joshie hope

Verse 2:
Joshie is the reason
that Bradley is still living
Because he gave Bradley
some much needed ambition
he saw a fixer upper
who needed a picker upper
and while talking sense to Joshie
saw the comparison

Hook 2:
And so he stayed
and sat Joshie down
And told him why
he should stick around

Chorus:
He’d have lived and died his life alone
had he not gone out and got himself a backbone
You should know that I’m not the one to boast
But I must say I’m the one that gave Joshie hope
He’d have lived and died his life alone
had he not gone out and got himself a backbone
You should know that I’m not the one to boast
But I must say I’m the one that gave Joshie hope

Bridge:
Hope is the faith residing in you and me
Hope is what saves people like you me and Joshie
Hope is the faith residing in you and me
Hope is what saves people like you me and Joshie

Chorus:
He’d have lived and died his life alone
had he not gone out and got himself a backbone
You should know that I’m not the one to boast
But I must say I’m the one that gave Joshie hope
He’d have lived and died his life alone
had he not gone out and got himself a backbone
You should know that I’m not the one to boast
But I must say I’m the one that gave Joshie hope
Track Name: I Am So So Sorry
Verse 1:
I was on my BandCamp
checkin’ out my songs
I came across an album
A really mean one
And it was all about you
I swear that I never knew
that I could be so cruel
or had it in me to be that rude
Just know that I regret it
I wrote them songs when I
was coming out of such a
terrible place in my life
Please promise you won’t ever
listen to them songs
And if you do then just don’t
let them piss you off

Hook 1:
Cause getting you back was my only hope
and I got so so mad when your focus was stole

Chorus 1:
I’ve written so many meany songs about you
So can you ever forgive me like I do

Verse 2:
This is not an invite
to reconnect with you
Though I am so so sorry
but please do not misconstrue
And all the things I said
even thought they were true
it just wasn’t necessary
to wage war against you

Hook 2:
And underneath all of the anger was pain
I was missing your face and now I am ashamed

Chorus:
I’ve written so many meany songs about you
And aired our dirty laundry out like what all you put me through
And I can take responsibility for all of my attitudes
And I’m a firm believer in the phrase “it takes two”
Track Name: Dusty Memo
Verse 1:
I’ve always been so eager to get all of the answers
So much in fact that sometimes I forget to live
So then I’d analyze it pick it apart piece by piece
And eventually lose track of what I wanted in the very first place

Chorus:
And now I come across a dusty memo
A buried one I haven’t seen in years
I read these words that I once wrote
Foreign feelings bringing me to tears

Verse 2:
I’ve always been a pleaser and put on hold my own desires
For once it’d be nice to not have to be the one to sacrifice
Because eventually I lost all feeling and forfeited my likeability
and lost my life’s experiences I’m ashamed of me

Chorus:
And now I come across a dusty memo
A buried one I haven’t seen in years
I read these words that I once wrote
Foreign feelings bringing me to tears

Bridge:
I am embarrassed
I don’t even
remember
my own feelings

Chorus:
And now I come across a dusty memo
A buried one I haven’t seen in years
I read these words that I once wrote
Foreign feelings bringing me to tears
Track Name: Reality (My Story)
Verse 1:
This is a story about me
Time to talk openly
I feel the need to express myself now
Come and share this story with me
It’s reality
Yeah come and listen to my story

Chorus:
I was afraid of what you’d think
But I realized that it’s my life
This story of mine could happen to you
And if it does then just play it cool

Verse 2:
God wouldn’t have made us like this
if it was wrong in the eyes of him
The feelings we have are the same as yours babe
Just a little different

Chorus:
I was afraid of what you’d think
But I realized that it’s my life
This story of mine could happen to you
And if it does then just play it cool

Verse 3:
We didn’t choose to be this way, no no
But it’s something that we live with
I didn’t ask God to make me like this
But I wouldn’t change it
What would you say if the tables were turned babe
Open up your eyes and say
Come on now
Agree with me
Lets make it
really easy

Chorus:
I was afraid of what you’d think
But I realized that it’s my life
This story of mine could happen to you
And if it does then just play it cool

Verse 4:
Think about this for awhile babe
Be careful what you say
Because some day you may love somebody like this
And then you’ll regret it

Chorus:
I was afraid of what you’d think
But I realized that it’s my life
This story of mine could happen to you
And if it does then just play it cool

Yo I really love him
Yes I really love him
He dunno I love him
He should know I love him

Yo I really love him
Yes I really love him
I wish that boy knew that he makes me come alive
He dunno I love him
He should know I love him

Chorus:
But he doesn’t see how I’m feeling
He makes me wanna scream oh my gleed
Oh my God is what I try screaming
But even when I am angry he fills me glee

Verse 2:
Boy is on a bad trip
I’ve gotta be patient
So I just been waiting
But there’s no mistaking

Hook 2:
The way he’ll love me I’m sure will be worth the wait

I’ve gotta be patient
How he enthralls me I’m sure we will marinate
So I just been waiting

Chorus ['til end]:
He doesn’t see how I’m feeling
He makes me wanna scream oh my gleed
Oh my God is what I try screaming
But even when I am angry he fills me glee
Track Name: Game
Verse 1:
This game that he likes to play
Is getting old and I’m over it
So let me be as I reminisce
Leave me alone ignorance is bliss
Tried to forget but it makes me sick
Hard to get over the dude I miss
Specially when he out talkin shit
And stickin somebody with his dirty prick

Hook:
And every night when I feel beside myself
I design this game just to escape for awhile

Chorus:
In this game there are dicks just as big as your ego
In my game there are licks just as hot as an emo
In the game all the tricks are hot hetero down-lows
And the fellas get their pick of the shiniest dildos

Verse 2:
I hate games better change your ways
Cause boy you play like a big dummy
Boy with the pecs know he gon get laid
Gonna fill him up with my mayonnaise
He asks me out I wont hesitate
Time pass by pushes you away
Little more time I’ll forget your name
I hope you know I don’t care what you think

Hook:
And every night when I feel beside myself
I design this game just to escape for awhile

Chorus:
In this game there are dicks just as big as your ego
In my game there are licks just as hot as an emo
In the game all the tricks are hot hetero down-lows
And the fellas get their pick of the shiniest dildos
Bridge:
What?

Chorus:
In this game there are dicks just as big as your ego
In my game there are licks just as hot as an emo
In the game all the tricks are hot hetero down-lows
And the fellas get their pick of the shiniest dildos
Track Name: Behind Us
Verse 1:
I never knew any better
So I’d cling onto you
Kept you locked up in my head forever
Afraid to make a move

Hook 1:
Cause your eyes your walk your build your flaws
are what made me fall for you
And had I shifted left or right I’d have risked
forgetting you

Chorus:
It’s a new era
It’s time to leave the
past behind us

Verse 2:
I never had anybody
as long as I had you
And I never ever loved anyone as
much as I loved you

Hook 2:
Your book smarts knowledge and slowness
seemed to cancel each other out
and contributed to my feelings for you
and now

Chorus:
It’s a new era
It’s time to leave the
past behind us

Bridge:
And I’ll be so alone now
But I gotta go
I’ll be so alone now
But I gotta go

Chorus:
It’s a new era
It’s time to leave the
past behind us
Track Name: Old Man Raps
Intro:
Retired? Hmm, I think they mean expired. And it’s a damn shame. Hmm, Kids!

Verse 1:
Dear Lord, What did I do to you to make you make me age / And then stick me in a world where youth means everything? / Where gray hair means insane / senile / and mundane / I might as well be dead and put six feet in my grave / ‘cause once you hit 30 your face begins to fade / And it’s not too long after that the world forgets your name / And then they lock you in a home and throw away the key / And they call it retirement but that’s not really what it means / You see it’s really like you’re luggage that your kids don’t wanna keep / When you changed their diapers and gave them punks lungs to breathe / Only to be cut off and shut out like a garden full of weeds / And they tell themselves they foot the bill so they’re able sleep / It’s fucked up if you ask me / you gave them everything / And they throw you out like old meat / now that’s what’s so insane / Fuck it that’s okay / cause one day you gonna be as old as me / And then you’ll be locked away / just because you’re slightly aged

Chorus:
Oh the great I used to be
Yes I had everything
But now I’m just elderly
Nobody even sees me
Or the great I used to be
Yes I had everything
But now I’m just elderly
Nobody even sees me

Verse 2:
I’m not dead yet so why’m I irrelevant / it’s all up in the head / and just forget the rest / I am just an elder / A geezer of a fell-er / so go home and tell her / that her dad doesn’t matter / That her dad just gets fatter / And has an old man bladder / That he needs a walker / To run from his stalker / And that he needs a wheel chair / And cut of all of his hair / Because some of it’s bare / And he’s out of his Nair

Chorus:
Oh the great I used to be
Yes I had everything
But now I’m just elderly
Nobody even sees me
Or the great I used to be
Yes I had everything
But now I’m just elderly
Nobody even sees me

Bridge:
Lock me up throw out my key
Change the locks no more home for me
But you’ll sleep well because you did the right thing
At least there they’ll care for me and meet my needs

Chorus:
Oh the great I used to be
Yes I had everything
But now I’m just elderly
Nobody even sees me
Or the great I used to be
Yes I had everything
But now I’m just elderly
Nobody even sees me
Track Name: I'll Never Leave You Again
Verse 1:
I’m here for you
Because I know that you are
unable to
find your way back home alone
And I’m here for you
Because I know you’re hurting
And I’ll see this through
because your life is worth it

Hook:
I know that some people give up on you like left and right
But I’ll never give up on you I’ll be here the whole time
I know that it seems crazy but I’ve never left your side
I’ve been here in the shadows all along and out of sight

I’m missing you
and wonder if you are
missing me too
And if you are perhaps you’ll
come find me here
at the place we first met
That’s where I’ve been
waiting for you all these years

Hook:
I know that some people give up on you like left and right
But I’ll never give up on you I’ll be here the whole time
I know that it seems crazy but I’ve never left your side
I’ve been here in the shadows all along and out of sight
Because

Chorus:
I know that things are going to get bad
Because they always have
But I’ll never leave you

Because they always have
But I’ll never leave you
And all I want is for you to come back
Remember what you had
cause I’ll never leave you again

Bridge:
I was so quick to jump ship when things got too tough to manage
Well not this time I’m going to put both feet in and see what happens

Chorus:
I know that things are going to get bad
Because they always have
But I’ll never leave you
And all I want is for you to come back
Remember what you had
Cause I’ll never leave you
I know that things they are going to get bad
Because they always have
But I’ll never leave you
And all I want is for you to come back
Remember what you had
cause I’ll never leave you again
Track Name: Bradley Voorhees (Featuring Joshua P. Kennedy) - Love Me Anymore
Brad’s Verse:
We met fell in love
And we had so much fun
16 I was young and lean
I had a little tan and you romanced me
What happened to our awesome plans
Living life and then being dads
Now instead we got bigger pants
I became a housewife and I got so fat

Brad’s Hook:
And now my boyfriend just looks right past me

The Brad Chorus:

Cause he don’t got not time for Brad
My boyfriend he don’t love me like he should
And I’m not sure that he ever has

Josh’s Verse:
You knew how to woo
You held me called me your boo
Not sure what that really meant
But I didn't care cause the dreams I'd dreamt
‘bout love were all coming true
Least that's what I thought
‘till you forgot our important dates
Took a straight boy on holiday

Josh’s Hook:
I wonder if my boyfriend even remembers me

The Josh Chorus:
Cause my boyfriend doesn’t love me anymore
Cause he don’t got not time for Josh

Bridge:
Brad: Hey Josh?
Josh: Yeah.
Brad: What you got?
Josh: Well I used to have a man but.,.
Brad: But that shit got squashed, right?
Josh: Yeah. Hold up, how’d you know?
Brad: You think you’re the only to ever date assholes?

If you find yourself reaching for the phone
I’m not home control yourself
I’ve moved on just letting you know
So touch yourself go fuck yourself

Brad: Hahaha Cause it ain’t gonna be me baby.
Josh: Hahaha And it ain’t gonna be me either.
Time to get reacquainted with that little thing we call
“Self-love.”

The Brad Chorus:
Cause my boyfriend doesn’t love me anymore
Cause he don’t got not time for Brad
My boyfriend he don’t love me like he should
And I’m not sure that he ever has

The Josh Chorus:
Cause my boyfriend doesn’t love me anymore
Cause he don’t got not time for Josh
My boyfriend he don’t love me like he should
Cause it seems like I am always forgot

The Brad Chorus:
Cause my boyfriend doesn’t love me anymore
Cause he don’t got not time for Brad
My boyfriend he don’t love me like he should
And I’m not sure that he ever has

The End:
My boyfriend doesn’t love me anymore
Track Name: I Thought
Verse 1:
I thought we had a chance
I thought I’d show you my life
But that’s not gonna happen
Can you tell me why
I thought I’d show you my way
I thought I’d show you how to
Live your life the right way
With me

Chorus:
I live my
life alone
I’d like to know
where did you go

Verse 2:
I thought I’d give it my all
I thought I’d hold you in my arms
I thought I’d make you fall in love
with me
I wish I did some things
different for your trust
I thought I’d do it like that
But I didn’t get much

Chorus:
I live my
life alone
I’d like to know
where did you go

Bridge:
I thought of only you
Why you
in my life

Chorus:
I live my
life alone
I’d like to know
where did you go
Track Name: The Dance Without Love
Verse 1:
Something’s wrong here
What the hell did you do to me
Something’s off here
Something is missing inside of me
It’s like I don’t feel
The way a guy my age should feel
It’s like I don’t act
The way a gay guy should be acting

Hook:
And I’m so over this tango so let me go
Cause you’re dancing you’re dancing alone

Chorus:
I used to yearn
And I used to cry
And my chest would burn
Night after night
It’s like I never learned
So I continued to try
And resiliently search
For a hot guy my type

Verse 2:
Something’s messed here
I’m comforted in knowing I am alone
It’s just so peculiar
The fact that I like life better with no one
When society’s
built to cater to couples and families
And being single is thought of as unfulfilling

Hook:
And I’m so over this tango so let me go
Cause you’re dancing you’re dancing alone

Chorus:
I used to yearn
And I used to cry
And my chest would burn
Night after night
It’s like I never learned
So I continued to try
And resiliently search
For a hot guy my type
Track Name: After All These Years
Verse 1:
Is it just me or is it coincidence
that just the other day I was talking to my friend
bout wanting to meet someone with a baby
Is it just me or is it coincidence
that just the other day I was talking to my friend
bout wanting to see you again

Chorus:
After all these years I never thought I’d see you again
It’s amazing it’s amazing, it’s amazing that this happened
And now I know that everything is gonna be alright
It’s gonna be alright

Verse 2:
Is it just me or is it coincidence
that just the other day I was thinking to myself bout
how I wanted someone I’m compatible with
Is it just me or is it coincidence
that just the other day I was thinking to myself bout
how I wanted someone ‘fore I turned into this

Chorus:
After all these years I never thought I’d see you again
It’s amazing it’s amazing, it’s amazing that this happened
And now I know that everything is gonna be alright
It’s gonna be alright

Bridge:
Is it just me or are you not interested
I feel like you think I’m bringing up
bad memories in your head
I thought everything was okay
Apparently you don’t wanna remember me

Chorus 2:
Cause there you are right in front of me
You’ve got a baby so I thought you’d understand me

Chorus:
After all these years I never thought I’d see you again
It’s amazing it’s amazing, it’s amazing that this happened
And now I know that everything is gonna be alright
It’s gonna be alright
Track Name: Bradley Voorhees Featuring Kromz Homes - The Brink
Intro:
You know, missed opportunities are the hardest to get over. Now there you stand, drowning my memories, letting them slip through your open hand.

Verse 1:
Watching the waterfall over the moonlight / Chasing dreams thought we were alright / Apparently you couldn't just sit tight / Your impatience my impracticality they fight / Now here we are wanderers in a lost wood / All I can think of is the would, the could, the should's / Sins of the flesh your intellect my desire they mesh / Yo all I ever wanted to be was someone who could have been great / Now my boasts seem fake / I've lost my way to the edge / No longer joking like Heath on the Ledge-er / Why’d I let you cut so deep / Now I'm looking down and the fall will be steep / Just another one of your mindless sheep / Should have dashed like snow / I’m gonna jump I gotta go / Perhaps now you’ll know / Love you as a friend prefer you as a foe / Whither like Bill / Like Pink Floyd just go on with the show

Chorus:
You pushed me to the brink
But it’s Just another day
In another one of your dumb games
Ya know the ones you like to play

Verse 2:
But I’m alright / I’m just fine / Though it’s a fight / up in my life / It’s not time / to say goodbye / I’ll tell you why / I’m still alive / I’m here still / because I have purpose / I’m not gonna let you get me down / I’m gonna turn my frown upside-down / I’m gonna scream foodstamps loud and proud / Tell the world I’m the brokest bitch in town / The one you gave away that day / The one you didn’t wanna date

Chorus:
You pushed me to the brink
But it’s Just another day
In another one of your dumb games
Ya know the ones you like to play

Bridge:
Familiar sidewalks / familiar faces / I'm stuck like food in braces / Walls of memories / frenemies / friends of me / It's burnt clouds I taste / Soon I'll be paste / Rough return to romance / Oh well / Took a chance / My hands like spiders / Spinning veins / Let me offer you some splattered brains / They burst like growing pains / All part of being lost / All part of being tossed / Drowning memories / Forgotten paths like Frost

Chorus:
You pushed me to the brink
But it’s Just another day
In another one of your dumb games
Ya know the ones you like to play
Track Name: Inspiration (Give 'em Hope 6)
Verse 1:
I know of a boy who got his shit together
When to the world it looked as though
he’d continue spiraling down
dumped by a man
who promised him his love forever
and when he didn’t
the boy he didn’t give up on love like I did

Hook 1:
He looked in the mirror
he saw a scrawny man
a flabby man
and so he decided that he
was going out
and getting himself a gym membership
and so he did
And when he looks into the mirror now
what he sees is
a guy I only wish
I could have been

Chorus:
He got big in the chest
Not big in the head
And that’s why he’s an inspiration
He got big in the pecs
Not big in the head
And that’s why he’s an inspiration

Verse 2:
I hope since that boy
could get his shit together
Maybe he could share the key
to finding hidden energy
Like how he went from being dumped
in a slump
something that could have lasted forever
To tapping into something big
Some inspiration seemingly easily

Hook 2
He looked into himself
He saw a sorry man a pathetic man
And so he decided that he was going out
and getting himself a hot studly man
A brand new boyfriend
And when he looks back on his sad life
what he sees is
A life that I
currently live and wish that I could
get away from

Chorus:
He got big in the chest
Not big in the head
And that’s why he’s an inspiration
He got big in the pecs
Not big in the head
And that’s why he’s an inspiration

Bridge:
Good emotions
Job promotions
Plays at night clubs
Shares all his songs
He’s so fortunate
And I’m so envious
I only wish
that I too
could add up

Chorus:
He got big in the chest
Not big in the head
And that’s why he’s an inspiration
He got big in the pecs
Not big in the head
And that’s why he’s an inspiration

Link:
Big arms
Bulging biceps
Oblique’s all lean and
Triceps to die for
He is a muscle whore
And that’s why he’s an inspiration

Verse 1:
If you’ve never
cared for me ever
Then what the hells the use
And if you’ve never
made me feel better
Then what’s the point in you

Hook 1:
I may not know my math
I may not have all the facts
I may not know algebra or fractions
Cause they really suck
But if there’s one thing I do know something about
it is love

Chorus:
That there what you gave me
It wasn’t gonna save me
That ‘love’ that you showed me
It was only gonna hold me
Back that day in the park where
I watched you disappear there
You took that new boy with you
And you departed from me

Verse 2:
Have you ever
loved a guy better
than what it’s like to love yourself

Hook 2:
I may not have good grammar
I may not know all the words
I may not know English well
Cause sometimes I’m really dumb
But I know you’ve never loved anyone because I know about love

Chorus:
That there what you gave me
It wasn’t gonna save me
That ‘love’ that you showed me
It was only gonna hold me
Back that day in the park where
I watched you disappear there
You took that new boy with you
And you departed from me

Bridge:
You know I loved you
but still you strayed
You know that
That I love you
Even still to this day
but

Chorus:
That there what you gave me
It wasn’t gonna save me
That ‘love’ that you showed me
It was only gonna hold me
Back that day in the park where
I watched you disappear there
You took that new boy with you
And you departed from me
