Track Name: Back in Control
Verse 1:
I’ve let mental-ness get me down
I’ve let my balls get kicked around
I’ve let them get me down somehow
I’ve clung onto things ugly in and out
Optimisms over used my mind
Time for me to regain my life
Find a friend that’s solely only mine
Find a love that’s positive all the time

Hook:
Back in control
Patch all the broken pieces of my life
Back in control
Decide for myself what’s not right
Back in control
Influences all left behind
Back in control
That’s why I needed this time

Chorus:
From no control
To more control than I ever hoped for
From no control
To all the control that I’ll ever need
I’ll ever need

Verse 2:
I’ve lost so much time loving dudes
I’ve crossed this bridge before so not new
I’ve let attitudes effect my moods
So much that I cringe around you
I can’t sleep a decent night
Can’t bring myself to enjoy time
That’s why I’m trying to grip my mind
Trying to imagine that you’re nice

Hook:
Back in control
Patch all the broken pieces of my life
Back in control
Decide for myself what’s not right
Back in control
Influences all left behind
Back in control
That’s why I needed this time

Chorus:
From no control
To more control that I ever hoped for
From no control
To all the control that I’ll ever need
I’ll ever need
More control than I’ll ever need
Track Name: You and You
Intro:
And you and you and you and you and you

Verse 1:
You don’t get the same love as I gave him
You aren’t any different than he is
You both act arrogant and it’s just the way I like them
You are both too stuck up to know who I am

Hook:
My flaws shine brightly I already know it
You both don’t hesitate to tell me this
But not ever once in my time with you had I pointed
I unconditionally loved you and take full credit

Chorus:
You don’t know anything
You and you are both the same
You don’t know anything
You and you drive me insane

Verse 2:
I’ll never make the same mistake again oh
Where I give my all
For a person that I want to make happy
It’ll never happen again
Selfishly you accept all that I give
unwantingly I sit there and keep giving it
I don’t ever wanna do it again no
So I don’t think I’ll ever do it again oh

Chorus:
You don’t know anything
You and you are both the same
You don’t know anything
You and you drive me insane

Chorus:
You don’t know anything
You and you are both the same
You don’t know anything
You and you drive me insane

Bridge:
You want me to give all of me to you
I can’t keep giving I don’t get anything
Track Name: You Can't (Whisper Intro)
You can't look like that

You can't pretend that you're not a fag
I know your ways

Little sissy fags aren’t like me and you
Couldn’t make a kid if they had to

When I see a fag it kills my mood
Cause when I see a bitch___
(Ya faggot ya faggot)

The most ignored so called artist

Verse 2:
your songs all have a cheap karaoke quality to them
and your bridges don’t exist in half of them
your songs all tend to sound the same

by any of them radio nor public population
most of the time in your lyrics
you speak of not understanding yourself
and whining about having depression

And no ones ever seen your face
And cribs has never visited your place
Your CDs are even free what a waste

Track Name: Ain't Much Like Being Vocal B
Verse 1:
I’m sittin in the studio at 4am workin’ on this song not much happenin’
I thought about writing ‘bout love thought about writing ‘bout lots of stuff
Nothing new nothing good all been used all been done
Sittin here wired up tired out have no luck
There is smoke in the air damn mosquitoes everywhere
Hangin in the lamps light

Hook 1:
Not feelin groovy
Not feelin love songs
Hangin mellow
Getting my smoke on
With my caffeine
With my t-shirt
And boxers on

Aint much like being Vocal B
Writing these melodies
Must do some harmonizing
I must sing
Aint much like being Vocal B
Writing these melodies
Must do some harmonizing
I must sing

Verse 2:
I’m still sittin here writing down how bored I am right now
And it’s gonna go on for hours I can tell
So I take another drag of my cigarette hoping it’ll come out soon
I thought about writing bout cars any subject but depression
then i knew something good I just thought of a hook
All these thoughts they belong here and now in this song
There are ants on the floor there are flies in the air
Hangin in the lamps light

Hook 2:
Not feelin funky
Not feelin dancish
Hangin calmly
Getting my smoke on
With my caffeine
And my t-shirt
And boxers on

Chorus:
Aint much like being Vocal B

Must do some harmonizing
I must sing
Aint much like being Vocal B
Writing all these melodies
Must do some harmonizing

Track Name: Such Memories
Verse 1:
I wrote about being in love
And how to have fun in the sun
I wrote a song about me and my mom
Ou oh ah
I wrote about my obsession
about my dog in heaven
I wrote about wanting a car
Ou oh ah
I Wrote a song about how I knew you wanted me
And how you once felt about loving me
I wrote a song about me and my girl
Ou oh ah
I wrote about how much I love my little girl
And how even if I was far away
I’d always be with her
Ou oh ah

Chorus:
And happy days
Bring such memories
And liking me
It was the key

Verse 2:
I wrote about playing the fool
And the hell of high school
I wrote about being a star
Ou oh ah
I wrote about going insane
I wrote about my bad name
I wrote about my first crush
Ou oh ah
I wrote about virtually everything
Experiences in the moment
I wrote about my depression
Ou oh ah
My songs about depression kept coming to me
It seems all my songs were getting too whiney
My depression back then wasn’t anything
Ou oh ah

Chorus:
And happy days
Bring such memories
And liking me
It was the key

Chorus:
And happy days
Bring such memories
And liking me
It was the key

Bridge:
Such memories come to me
And peace was in me
Come back to me
I beg of you please
Track Name: You Can't (Both Intro)
You can't look like that
You can't wear your hair like that
You can't go on pretending that you're not getting fat

You can't say that your music is great
You can't pretend that you're not a fag
I know your ways
Track Name: Your Departure

My memory of you flies right in (Flies right in)
Of you as you were back then (Of you as you were back then)

Chorus:

Track Name: What Would it Take
Verse 1:
Why do I still come to you in need when I know you’ll hurt me
Why do you wait ‘til the last minute before you knock off your shit
‘Cause you press my buttons ‘til you know that you’ve reached your fucking limit
How can I contemplate my life when you are not around

Chorus:
What would it take to be a little funnier
What would it take for me to get you to smile again
And what would it take for me to feel great with you like we did back then
What would it feel like to have every part of this end

Verse 2:
Why do I still live with you when it’s obvious you will not change
Why are you not the same as you once seemed like you were to me
I feel like you are now set in your new unattractive ways
It’s almost like it’s time for me to plan an escape

Chorus:
What would it take to be a little funnier
What would it take for me to get you to smile again
And what would it take for me to feel great with you like we did back then
What would it feel like to have every part of this end
Track Name: Time Apart
Verse 1:
Here it comes again and I never know quite what to do
I don’t like all of the things you
Do to me now in my life I’ve become weak
And I don’t know why I don’t know how
And if it was you and you asked for some space then
I’d understand why I’d leave you alone
Since we wanted our love to stay alive you should have fuckin’
understood why I needed this time

Chorus:
Why don’t we just embrace this
Time apart to be stress-less
Heaven knows we deserve it
Time apart to find more substance
The way we live just ain’t worth it
Time apart to find our purpose
‘Cause we’re no longer workin’
Time apart to forget shit

Verse 2:
I wish you grow up enough to see the situation
Clearer then you seem to let on
Calm yourself down to a civil person
Don’t start to shake Don’t start to yell
And if it was me all up in your face then you
You too’d be alarmed You too’d pace around
We need a break so we’ll grow the fuck up
Its for our own good to sort this shit out

S-Chorus:
Why don’t we just embrace this
Time apart to be stress-less
Heaven knows we deserve it
Time apart to find more substance

Bridge:
Why do I do I loath what I thought I never would
I must make the most of our time apart
I know we could…

Chorus:
Just embrace this
Time apart to be stress-less
Heaven knows we deserve it
Time apart to find more substance
The way we live just ain’t worth it
Time apart to find our purpose
‘Cause we are no longer workin’
Time apart to forget shit

Just embrace this
To be stress-less
We deserve it
To find more substance
Track Name: Get Lost
Verse 1:
I said I wanted a break from us man
Some time alone to chill and relax
That’s all I really ever wanted
Just a little time & a little space man
All that you said I could not take
And all that we became was insane
Too many lies and too many games
So much spite and so much hate
Far too many little things that you said
are all still stuck up in my head
Big time guilty I vowed and pledged
But I take back all that I said
You didn’t acknowledge what you’d did
So I guess you’re not forgiven
There is too much shit in my head
to have to add your ass to it

Hook:
And I want to become
and know what I was
before love
such a man
yes I was

Chorus:
I have plans
so go get fucked
You really suck
You shouldn’t get my love
I’m so fucking dumb
Go away from me son
Just get lost
Go get lost

Verse 2:
I had begged to have you understand me
Man I must be crazy really
‘Cause that is so unlike Bradley
Wait ‘til you get a hold of the real me
‘I love you’ isn’t all you’ll be saying
You’ll be running to save your name
I’ll be the king of all your pain
I’m the dude that haunts all your dreams
Way too many things I put up with
Really you were not worth it
Your hissy-fits and your arrogance
Your loud mouth and shaky silences
You selfish man and mind
You crazy falling into deep mental-ness
Regretfully your lies weren’t all it

Hook 2:
And I want to stand
and become
who I was before love
Such a man yes I was

Chorus:
I have plans
so go get fucked
You really suck
You shouldn’t get my love
I’m so fucking dumb
Go away from me son
Go get lost
Just get lost

Chorus:
I have plans
so go get fucked
You really suck
You shouldn’t get my love
I’m so fucking dumb

Bridge:
And now you’re leaving
You’re going out of town
I’m so alone
I’ll be so alone
What will I do now that I don’t have you
I’ll be here in my house living alone

Chorus:
so go get fucked
You really suck
You shouldn’t get my love
I am so fucking dumb
Go away from me son
Go get lost
Just get lost

I have plans
Yes I do
Many plans
That don’t have you involved
Not you involved
You’ll be gone
Track Name: Oh Jeremy
Verse 1:
Your lies began to get under my skin
Your lies covered up your lies before I knew it
My time with you well lets just say it wasn’t worth it
I think we would have made such better friends

Hook 1:
Or better lovers if we hadn’t jumped right in
Particularly not buying all that shit

Chorus:
My moods my days revolved around you (Oh Jeremy (x3))
My fears my life revolved around you (Oh Jeremy (x3))
My attitudes were an affect of you (Oh Jeremy (x3))
My internal wounds were an affect of you (Oh Jeremy (x3))

Verse 2:
Your eyes began to get into my heart (Into my heart)
But then your amazing eyes they turned dark (Turned dark)
You became unrecognizable to me (unrecognizable)
I then had a stranger with whom I was living (I was living)

Hook 2:
Probably would have made it had we not dove right in
Hard to shake it the feeling of losin’

Chorus:
My moods my days revolved around you (Oh Jeremy (x3))
My fears my life revolved around you (Oh Jeremy (x3))
My attitudes were an affect of you (Oh Jeremy (x3))
My internal wounds were an affect of you (Oh Jeremy (x3))
Track Name: It Was I
Verse 1:
Why did you scream to me ‘don’t go’
If your life with me was such a hell-hole
I gave what any good man would give
You took like anybody selfish

Hook:
And now we’re all over
And now you’re alone
And somehow all of my giving
It got turned around

Chorus
And it made me the bad guy
I’m the one who made you cry
The one who broke your heart and made you die inside
Yes it was I Yes it was I
What were you thinkin’ lovin a gay guy
What was I thinking livin’ life a lie
Who were we foolin what what what were we thinkin’
We we were so fuckin’ foolish
And we we were mistaken

Verse 2:
Why did it take so long to end
You and I were such good friends
I did a bad thing I know now
And I wish I could turn it all around
‘Cause now we’re all over
And now I’m alone
And now we’re both grieving
And we’re living life upside down

Chorus:
And I made me the bad guy
The one who made you cry
The one who broke your heart
And who made you die inside
Yes it was I
What were you thinkin’ lovin a gay guy
And what was I thinkin’ living life a lie
Who were we Who were we foolin what were we thinking
We we were so fucking foolish
And we were so mistaken
