Track Name: A Gay in the Life (Intro)
This is life this is life this is my gay life
A day in the life of a gay guy
This is life this is life this is my gay life
I said a day in the life of a gay guy
Track Name: Castaway
Verse 1:
There I go again bragging I’m the shit
All I ever did I’ve learned to never do again
I’m so uncool and I’m so blind
Didn’t ever stop to think or even ask why
You didn’t like me You’re so unkind
And I’m so not wise My heart cries
As my flaws shine my heart dies
No mercy from your negative vibes

Link 1 :
Unwillingly
I’ve lived so nobly
You never liked me honestly
And you told me so carelessly

Hook:
And I know that I’ll live so unsure of my shit
So I’ll quit worrying about lip from some hick
Ignore it not hear it or I’ll live ignorant
Cause of some bitch

Chorus:
Castaway
I’m just your average castaway
Not much to see here just a castaway
Castaway

Verse 2:
There I go laughing with who I think are my friends
All I ever did I’ve learned to never do again
I’m overruled I wish I’d just die
Never even tried just to see why
You didn’t like me You lived so spitefully
With your selfish lies and your phony lines
My whole life’s been a lie and I’m so hurt by
Your filthy minds I should have seen the signs

Link 2:
Unbeautifully
You treated me so bitterly
You had me fooled so carefully
Then you told me so carelessly

Hook:
And I know that I’ll live so unsure of my shit
So I’ll quit worrying about lip from some hick
Ignore it not hear it or I’ll live ignorant
Cause of some bitch

Chorus:
Castaway
I’m just your average castaway
Not much to see here just a castaway
Castaway
Castaway
I’m just your average castaway
Not much to see here just a castaway
Castaway

Bridge:
Some things they never change
Just like you are still horrid to this day
You’re so unkind to everyone you meet
And therefore you are bitter and alone today

Chorus:
Castaway
I’m just your average castaway
Not much to see here just a castaway
Castaway
Castaway
I’m just your average castaway
Not much to see here just a castaway
Castaway
Track Name: Crushin'
Verse 1:
Hello nice of you to come and see me again
I wonder if you’re finally gonna let me in
On your little secret
And that’s that you’re in love with me
Bashfully adorable you are
If you only knew the innards of my heart
That I love you too
Mmm that I always have
That you sing the same tune
That’s always stuck in my head
Ut-oh

Chorus:
Ut oh I promise that I wont show
You that I already know
Ut oh
That you’re always crushin
Ut oh
Crushin up on me

Verse 2:
Hello again lets both sit here and just play pretend
Lets act all kosure like you and I are just friends
Even though you want me
But you donno I want you too
Spontaneously inviting you are
And endearingly clever you are by far
I just wish you knew that
That I wanted you bad
Mmm and that you gave me my heart back
Brought meaning to my life again

Chorus:
Ut oh I promise that I wont show
You that I already know
Ut oh
That you’re always crushing
Ut oh
Crushing up on me

Bridge:
Ut-oh I’m gonna take you by surprise
Ut-oh express all that I hide
Ut-oh I’ll just let it out some night
All in due time
Ut-oh Ut-oh Ut-oh

Chorus:
Ut oh I promise that I wont show
You that I already know
Ut oh
That you’re always crushing
Ut oh
Crushing up on me
Track Name: Our Last Goodbye
Verse 1:
5 years ago we hit a fork in the road
5 years ago we left ‘us’ alone
5 years ago we’d both had enough
5 years ago we’d done a little growing up

Hook:
And there’s no going back
Though sometimes I wish that

Chorus:
I could travel back in time
That I could witness you and I
Sharing hugs, a family life
Making love all through the night
I’d skip over all the fights
Take all the wrongs and make them rights
And turn on all the lights
Then erase our last goodbye

Verse 2:
9 years ago you and I first met up
9 years ago I thought that I had met love
9 years ago things began to get rough
9 years ago was the beginning of the end of us

Hook:
And there’s no going back
Though sometimes I wish that

Chorus:
I could travel back in time
That I could witness you and I
Sharing hugs, a family life
Making love all through the night
I’d skip over all the fights
Take all the wrongs and make them rights
And turn on all the lights
Then erase our last goodbye
Track Name: The Lonely One
Verse 1:
I was all up on the “Yo I gotta get that”
You was on the down-low all like “gotta creep that”
Baby that made us clash
Sorry I wont hit back
But I gotta new plan
Got myself a new man
And he rock a mustache
And he isn’t brain-dead
Unlike some other men
Beef with me I’m warning
You won’t like the Backlash
See you in the morning
I’ma have to kick ass
Knock you to the floor then
Choke you with my necklace
Surrounded by your rednecks
Burn you in your coffin
Then get myself some breakfast
Then get my kitty petted
With my mans erection
Because my ass is precious
Something you didn’t get
And that you never did
But I’m not complaining
Cause everything you said
Didn’t mean a thing then
And time didn’t change shit
Only makes me forget
Our partnership existed
I’m so over it

Hook:
This is the part of the song
where the singer has a nervous breakdown
Well sorry to let you down
But I’m all cried out
For now

Chorus:
Baby baby you were my one and only love
Baby you were the only one mmm
Almost like you were sent from the sweet sweet lord above
But now baby you’re the lonely one

Verse 2:
I was all hip to your game of trying to play me
Didn’t think that I seen you was being shady
Boy you must be crazy
Obviously
You ain’t seen me lately
Cause you know your death’d be
Sadly untimely
Boy I’m just reminding
You of all my findings
JK I’m just unwinding
And I’m busy laughing
That you’re asinine
And I’m also grabbing
My straw that you ain’t grasping

Hook:
This is the part of the song
where the singer has a nervous breakdown
Well sorry to let you down
But I’m all cried out
For now

Chorus:
Baby baby you were my one and only love
Baby you were the only one mmm
Almost like you were sent from the sweet sweet lord above
But now baby you’re the lonely one

Bridge:
Baby you’re the lonely one
Now you’re just the lonely one
Baby you’re the lonely one
Now you’re just the lonely one
Baby you’re the lonely one

Chorus:
Baby baby you were my one and only love
Baby you were the only one mmm
Almost like you were sent from the sweet sweet lord above
But now baby you’re the lonely one
Track Name: Distorted Perception
Verse 1:
If you walk out that door then don’t you ever come back
(I swear I’ll change the locks to it)
And shut it if you’ve got issues with your dad because I’m not that kinda man
(and I hate the comparison)
Just because you’re skinny now doesn’t mean you are attractive
(enough to wear that bitch face baby)
You just keep yacking it up as if anyone knows you’re there
(Google is our friend and not your point prover)

Chorus:
It’s because you’re my friend
These things go on unsaid
Because I’ve got to much class
To call you by your name
Either that or I’m tame
And I’m just too nice to say
That you make me decay
More and more everyday
And it’s just far too late
You make me feel unpretty
And not at all nice to me
So just have a nice day
But get your shit and just leave
I am over this game
And above all your ways

Verse 2:
If u wanna get yourself some more friends then stop being so negative
(Negativity tends to bring people down)
If you think that your shit don’t stink then please don’t waste your time on me
(I’ve had my fair share of pompous jerk-wads)
If you hate me so much then why you even in my life still
(Seems to me that I’m the best that you will ever do)
If you need to be told that you’re cute then please just go hang with the fuglies
(No one looks good wearing insecurity)

Chorus:
It’s because you’re my friend
These things go on unsaid
Because I’ve got to much class
To call you by your name
Either that or I’m tame
And I’m just too nice to say
That you make me decay
More and more everyday
And it’s just far too late
You make me feel unpretty
And not at all nice to me
So just have a nice day
But get your shit and just leave
I am over this game
And above all your ways

Bridge:
I love you by the way
Even though the things you say
Are so underneath me
Unkind and uncaring

Chorus:
It’s because you’re my friend
These things go on unsaid
Because I’ve got to much class
To call you by your name
Either that or I’m tame
And I’m just too nice to say
That you make me decay
More and more everyday
And it’s just far too late
You make me feel unpretty
And not at all nice to me
So just have a nice day
But get your shit and just leave
I am over this game
And above all your ways
Track Name: Inflate Me
Verse 1:
I’d deflate over not being able to find somebody loving
Then I’d deflate over the people who actually loved me
Then I’d deflate when I was solely made a fuck-buddy
And here years later I’m deflated cause I enjoy my monogamy

Chorus 1:
What the hell is wrong with me
There’s just no pleasing me
You’ve gotta hurry
So you can inflate me

Verse 2:
I’d deflate if the guy I idolized didn’t notice me
But I’m the one who’d hide myself so stupidly
Call it fear of rejection or a blatant lack of trying
But needless to say I have only myself to blame

Chorus 2:
There’s just no in-between
But times-a-wasting
And you have got to hurry
So you can inflate me

Bridge:
In all honesty
It’s a no win sitchy
But secretly a part of me
Is so effing happy
From a whore for love in the early 90s
To a hermit currently
The deflation shows up sporadically
To remind me there is no pleasing me

Chorus 1:
What the hell is wrong with me
There’s just no pleasing me
You’ve gotta hurry
So you can inflate me

Deflate deflated
Inflate me
Track Name: Never Gonna Blend In Gave Me Hope (Give 'em Hope 7)
Verse 1:
Not long ago I lived through an internal war
Cause I was unique I thought that I couldn’t be the norm
I didn’t hesitate to always put myself down
But that all changed the day that I had a look around

Hook:
And I’m Never gonna blend in
Thank god
I’m never gonna blend in
Cause It’s not what I want
No it’s not what I want

Chorus 1:
Nap she gave me hope
David he gave me hope
Mom she gave me hope
Sis she gave me hope
Unique it doesn’t mean weird
Nap she gave me hope
David he gave me hope
Mom she gave me hope
Sis she gave me hope
Unique is everywhere

Verse 2:
For the longest time I mistook the word unique as odd
So I obviously thought that something about me was off
And as an outcome I let others put me down
I never stopped to think that out the box could make them wow

Hook:
And I’m Never gonna blend in
Thank god
I’m never gonna blend in
Cause It’s not what I want
No it’s not what I want

Chorus 2:
Nap she gave me hope
David he gave me hope
Mom she gave me hope
Sis she gave me hope
Unique doesn’t mean strange
Nap she gave me hope
David he gave me hope
Mom she gave me hope
Sis she gave me hope
Unique all over me
Nap she gave me hope
David he gave me hope
Mom she gave me hope
Sis she gave me hope
Unique doesn’t mean strange
Nap she gave me hope
David he gave me hope
Mom she gave me hope
Sis she gave me hope
Unique unique is winning
Nap she gave me hope
David he gave me hope
Mom she gave me hope
Sis she gave me hope
Unique doesn’t mean weird
Nap she gave me hope
David he gave me hope
Mom she gave me hope
Sis she gave me hope
Unique all over me
Track Name: Soar
:::::LYRICS:::::
Verse 1:
He sure did build an empire
‘Till they took it all that night
I won’t pretend to understand it
But his work made him a happy guy

Hook 1:
He used to soar away the day
‘Till they took his sacred place
Then he just drank his life away

Chorus:
That man he gave me my wings and ambition
That man he taught my spirit to fly high
But after his dreams of soaring were all grounded
He took one last drink cocked his head to the side
And then died

Verse 2:
He sure was inspiring
The way he built it all up from scratch
Made community where there wasn’t one
Then they turned on him when times got tough

Hook 2:
When they used to soar away their days
Courtesy of Dave
All because Dave he gave them wings

Chorus:
That man he gave me my wings and ambition
That man he taught my spirit to fly high
But after his dreams of soaring were all grounded
He took one last drink cocked his head to the side

Bridge:
Give that man’s family back their property
Leave them his legacy
You’ve got to make it right
You have the chance to be bigger now
So don’t you let them down
Just let his spirit soar high

Chorus:
That man he gave me my wings and ambition
That man he taught my spirit to fly high
But after his dreams of soaring were all grounded
He took one last drink cocked his head to the side

Chorus:
That man he gave me my wings and ambition
That man he taught my spirit to fly high
But after his dreams of soaring were all grounded
He took one last drink cocked his head to the side
And then died

Track Name: Sick to Death
Verse 1:
And I’m sick to death of all the shit I go through with you all time
And I’m sick to death of you always putting me second in your line
And I just hate it that you can’t ever make up your mother fucking mind
So it’s too late for us I bid you farewell and leave your ass behind

Chorus (x2):
When I’m a trend setter go getter
And that don’t leave you at all satisfied
You bed wetter I can do better
Time to return all of your grime

Verse 2:
And I’m sick to death of you always pretending that you’re blind
And I’m sick to death of always listening to you fucking whine
And I just hate it that you can’t ever make up your mother fucking mind
So it’s too late for you I salute you for being left behind

Chorus (x2):
When I’m a trend setter go getter
And that don’t leave you at all satisfied
You bed wetter I can do better
Time to return all of your grime

Bridge:
Mama said that you weren’t worth my time
And as much as it sucks I think that she was right
Sister showed me that you could cross the line
Daughter made me realize that without you I’ll be fine

Chorus (x2):
When I’m a trend setter go getter
And that don’t leave you at all satisfied
You bed wetter I can do better
Time to return all of your grime
Track Name: A Brad Moment
Verse 1:
Sitting here with a pen in my hand trying to write
But I can’t see the paper cause it’s dark outside. There is no light
Rather then goin’ for the switch I sit and I stare. I don’t even try
Cause something bout the shadowy night makes me feel all alive

Chorus:
I’m having a Brad moment
And it’s hard to own up it
Enthralling me. I’m frozen
Like, into me, it’s woven
Or that part of me is broken
Or parts of me were stolen
The darkness is so open
And I’m falling into the abyss

Verse 2:
I’m numb inside now and I’m not sure why
I don’t wanna question it because then I may start to cry
Besides it’s not so bad sitting here in the dark. I kinda like the high
So just keep your distance from me or you may spark a fight

Chorus:
I’m having a Brad moment
And it’s hard to own up it
Enthralling me. I’m frozen
Like, into me, it’s woven
Or that part of me is broken
Or parts of me were stolen
The darkness is so open
And I’m falling into

Bridge:
Most my life I’ve tried to escape. Run away
But I’m playin a losing game
Always knew there’d come a day where I’d say “fuck it”
And then I would just jump right into it

Chorus:
I’m having a Brad moment
And it’s hard to own up it
Enthralling me. I’m frozen
Like, into me, it’s woven
Or that part of me is broken
Or parts of me were stolen
The darkness is so open
And I’m falling into the abyss
Track Name: Little Ginger Man (Zack Ward Call Brad) ("A Brad Moment" Parody)
Titus? Or tight ass?
LoL

What’s it gonna take to get a phone call?
Do I have to write a song and name it after him to get a phone call?
Well, is this here song that I wrote for you worth a phone call?
Is my undying homosexual love worth a phone call?

Ready?!?! Don’t Blink!!!

I’m having a Zack attack
And It feels like a heart attack
And I don’t know what holds him Back
When I just wanna hit the sack
But there’s only one thing I lack
And by now we all know that
So everyone make a pact
To have Zack Ward call Brad!!

I’ve always thought gingerly love would make some damn epic porn
And Zack Ward would be the king of it with his strong manly arms
Yeah, I know he’s not gay but I’m pretty sure that he likes alcohol
True, I know he has a girl, “Hey girl, I’ll hit the back, and you take the front!”

Ahuh Ahuh

I’m having a Zack attack
And It feels like a heart attack
And I don’t know what holds him Back
When I just wanna hit the sack
But there’s only one thing I lack
And by now we all know that
So everyone make a pact
To have Zack Ward call Brad!!

I’m a drop dead Diva, and they say you is a pleaza
Without you I am lost I got some dead wood
I’m like Freddy with no pennies and a ghost dog
I know it’s kinda sketchy livin’ in the void of no love

I’m having a Zack attack
And It feels like a heart attack
And I don’t know what holds him Back
When I just wanna hit the sack
But there’s only one thing I lack
And by now we all know that
So everyone make a pact
To have Zack Ward call Brad!!

I’m having a Zack attack
And It feels like a heart attack
And I don’t know what holds him Back
When I just wanna hit the sack
But there’s only one thing I lack
And by now we all know that
So everyone make a pact
To have Zack Ward call Brad!!

6-0-7
Call Brad
4-8-1
Call Brad
4-9-4-7
Call Brad

I’m having a Zack attack
And It feels like a heart attack
And I don’t know what holds him Back
When I just wanna hit the sack
But there’s only one thing I lack
And by now we all know that
So everyone make a pact
To have Zack Ward call Brad!!
Track Name: Bradley Voorhees (Featuring Joshua P. Kennedy) - You Weren't Meant for Me
Verse 1:
I cried every single night in a house full of alarms
It was safe but it didn’t keep me from harm
Because I’d die every time you went back to his arms

Hook:
And I think a million things like
“He’ll be back. We’ll be okay.
He’s just in need of some space,
Away from here away from me”
And it hurts my head to think
that I made you my everything
But you and me were never meant to be
Yes I finally see that

Chorus:
You weren’t meant for me (x4)

Verse:
I cried every night when you didn’t come home
And then we’d fight until I’d asked you to go
Then like on repeat I’d cry to myself alone

Hook:
And I’d say silly things yo
All the time like every day
Knowing you weren’t my destiny
But hell “Let’s just get married anyway!”
And that hurts my head to say
When I made you my everything
But you and me were never meant to be
Yes I finally see that

Chorus:
You weren’t meant for me (x4)

Bridge:
I cried every single night in a house full of alarms
It was safe but it didn’t keep me from harm

Chorus:
You weren’t meant for me (x4)
