Track Name: I Can't Get Out
Verse 1:
When I get so wrapped up life
I forget to know what’s wrong and right
Or where all this pain is stemming from
Or all this anger and who’s the cause

Chorus:
And I’m in a living nightmare and I can’t get out
I’ve become a prisoner of my own being and I can’t get out
And I’m in a living nightmare and I can’t get out
I’ve become a prisoner of my own being and I can’t get out

Verse 2:
It’s nice to know that I’m not alone
But even so nobody knows
And it’s so dark here and the grief is vast
And no body hears the thoughts they lack

Chorus:
And I’m in a living nightmare and I can’t get out
I’ve become a prisoner of my own being and I can’t get out
And I’m in a living nightmare and I can’t get out
I’ve become a prisoner of my own being and I can’t get out
Track Name: This is Permanent
Verse 1:
I don’t want to sing no sad songs not today
I don’t want my questions answered not today
Just one day no just one minute without analysis
What can I do to save myself from the headache

Chorus:
And I wont cry about this again
It’s something I have to deal with
Are you out there and listenin’
This is permanent

Verse 2:
Everyday’s the same old thing it’s just a variation
I’m 26 and I’ve seen almost everything
Depression owns me it’s made me a cold me’s what I always say
I made my worries I own my problems they belong to me

Chorus:
And I wont cry bout this again
It’s something I have to deal with
Are you out there and listenin’
This is permanent

In the dark within my heart
My reap was sewn right from the start

It’s not you who’s crying here

Chorus:
It’s not easy being me
It’s not easy being lonely
It’s not easy be unseen
But I’m unseen

Verse 2:
In this place I’m half insane
It really sucks being filled with this pain
I feel so unloved and people know
And so I play the fool I suppose

Hook:
In light in light of this
I’ll cry in spite of this
It’s not you who’s crying here

Chorus:
It’s not easy being me
It’s not easy being lonely
It’s not easy be unseen
But I’m unseen

Monogamy what does that mean he’s a stupid whore

He uses his songs as his bate the conniving whore

His style is wack and he just don’t know he’s a real dense whore
His evil smile is overused and weird dumb girly whore
The way he sits and his crooked dick what a real gross whore

That I want you to hear

I die a little bit more inside after every single night
I evaluate my life and then I start to cry
Cause every time I find that you are not mine

Why doesn’t life work like that
Why the hell couldn’t you love me back
I loved you so much that’s a matter of fact
It’s too late I fell off the track

Verse 2:
I’ve been so insecure inside
Steadily falling down a slide
I’d lose a bit of you each time
Oh why oh why oh why
If I had it all to do again
I’d make us last till the end
I’d make love to you my friend
Love each moment of our time spent

Why the hell couldn’t you love me back
I loved you so much that’s a matter of fact
It’s too late I fell off the track

What am I to you
Will I play the fool

Track Name: Reinvent Me
Verse 1:

I’m so sorry I can no longer live up to my name

Chorus:
Oh reinvent me
Take it all away
I beg for a new slate
Before I go insane

I beg for a new slate
Before I go insane
Track Name: I'm on my Own
Chorus:
I’m on my own
No one understands me
I’m on my own
No one understands me
I’m on my own
No one understands me
I’m on my own
No one understands me
(Repeat)

Verse 1:
Hey guy yeah you
I’ve never seen you cry for me
It’s true that you
Would rather see me deny
The truth to you
But I’ve never been the one to lie
Not to them or you
I need to be seen half alive
Cause boy that’s the truth
I wish I knew the reason why
Oh yes I do
Though I think I know the reason why
Oh yes I do
But I’ll leave the reason out the song this time
This time

Chorus:
I’m on my own
No one understands me
I’m on my own
No one understands me
I’m on my own
No one understands me
I’m on my own
No one understands me

Verse 2:
Hey girl yeah you
You’ve never really helped me
emotionally
You’d always want to fight me
Instead of comforting me
With no doubt I’ve played the fiend
And so obviously
My head could use some comforting
Something enlightening
I should write some poetry
Where I could unload and whine
I need to get some self-esteem
Then I’ll get you some self-esteem

Chorus:
I’m on my own
No one understands me
I’m on my own
No one understands me
I’m on my own
No one understands me
I’m on my own
No one understands me
(Repeat)
Track Name: Damn Unbearable
Verse 1:
Whether or not you’re a good person
is beyond the words of this song
But were you a good guy to me not quite
There’s not a chance that I am wrong
You were supposed to love me unconditionally
yes but you did not
And if I’m correct in my learnings
You must not be the guy for me

Chorus:
What did I do wrong to make you go
And what didn’t I do to make you stay
And what made me so damn unbearable yeah yeah yeah
Tell me so next time I’ll be more careful

Verse 2:
One sided love fest 2006
and I stood up on two feet
I walked away though it killed me
but I didn’t miss a beat
Maybe one night when you’re all alone
you’ll flip through all your photos and see
All of the days that I loved you
and then you’ll feel as empty as me

Chorus:
What did I do wrong to make you go
And what didn’t I do to make you stay
And what made me so damn unbearable yeah yeah yeah
Tell me so next time I’ll be more careful
Track Name: Legends in the Ghetto
Chorus:
In our lives in the ghetto
I can see light in the shadows
I can see you unmistaken
Never needed to be fake with you

Verse 1:
You played head games with me and did it with no shame
But I did shit to you too so it’s all just the same
You think that you’re cool when I think you’re lame
But you have your views too like whenever I stake my claim
Our grudges and battles and the shit that we bring
I’m the innocent one and another song sang
I’d be singin’ that song bitch but you got in my way
Why you always yellin’ damn there go another day

Chorus:
In our lives in the ghetto
I can see light in the shadows
I can see you unmistaken
Never needed to be fake with you

Verse 2:
Charlie’s café, Bobby’s sweet love they speak the same thing
But you never noticed bitch cause you ain’t ever shut up dang
Why do you always fight me girl when you know you’ll never get your way
You get what you give duh ain’t that what they say
And I give and I give and I give and I give and I give endlessly
I don’t get anything

Chorus:
In our lives in the ghetto
I can see light in the shadows
I can see you unmistaken
Never needed to be fake with you


Verse 3:
Throughout the years of our turmoil and our tears
I came out I was queer but you stayed put right here
When you can drive a dude nuts then you know that he cares
You know the dude still loves you if through that he’s still there
The big trips to the city or the small ones to Sayre
We’ll go down as legends Brad and Sallee took dares
Life in the ghetto where life just ain’t fair
Raisin a daughter in insanity’s lair
Beat the fuck out of our houses throwin’ shit everywhere
But together we’d pick up the shattered glass and declare
That it would be the last time that we’d be able to share
But it’s too late we’ve been there
Took shit straight played grin bare

Chorus:
In our lives in the ghetto
I can see light in the shadows
I can see you unmistaken
Never needed to be fake with you
Track Name: When This Song Comes Out
Verse:
I’m sitting here all by myself
I am hurt if you can’t tell
I’m wallowing and I don’t care
So why am I still even here
When you moved on, I knew you would
You never loved me so I guess that’s good
So why do I feel so bad, why do I still love this man?

Hook:
When he doesn’t love me back
When I don’t know if he ever has
I’m not sure than anybody really can
My shattered heart is such a mess
I can’t take it I know that
Time and time and time again

Chorus:
These dreams of mine
Are falling to the ground
I hope you cry when this song comes out
I’m so crushed now
I shouldn’t have let you come around
I hope you cry when this song comes out
Track Name: 337-5213
Intro:
337-5213 I need you long I need you deep
337-5213 I can feel my hand begin to reach
337-5213 I need to get the hell out of this place
337-5213 Everything makes me think of you and me
337-5213 Oh god I’m calling please stop me from calling

Verse 1:
I really feel the urge to call you boyfriend
17 different times a day I feel the same itch
I really don’t think it’s wise when that would make you win
I don’t really wanna fall all over again

Chorus:
And I must say I’ve lived some long
Lonely days and it’s been so tough
Since you strayed wish I was numb
I’m losin’ faith in finding love

Verse 2:
I’ve recently come to think about my options
Reflect on the life that I’d have if you really left
What did I really have when I called you my man
All the late heart to hearts a lover and a friend

Chorus:
And I must say I’ve lived some long
Lonely days and it’s been so tough
Since you strayed wish I was numb
I’m losin’ faith in finding love

And I must say I’ve lived some long
Lonely days and it’s been so tough
Since you strayed wish I was numb
I’m losin’ faith in finding love

Verse 1:
No more incite
No more delight
Cause typical Bradley’s become
I’ve got no more inside
No more fist fights
Nothing more I have to let out

Hook 1:
I shutter to think about all I‘m living through
There aint a place that I aint been emotionally in my head oh no

Chorus:
I can lose grip quickly at the rate I’m goin’
I can’t seem to find my way out of this damn depression
I try to break free and I live spontaneously
Wont you tell me when’s the grass get greener
When’s the grass gets greener
I can lose grip quickly at the rate I’m goin’
I can’t seem to find my way out of this damn depression
I try to break free and I live spontaneously
Wont you tell me when’s the grass get greener
When’s the grass gets greener

Verse 2:
No more white lies
No more sweet tries
Cause Bradley’s strong says Bradley’s persona
I’ve got no more hip lines
No more fake try’s
Nothing more I have to shout out

Hook 2:
I refuse to believe that nobody sees that
That I aint right that I aint scared that I aint even here oh no

Chorus:
I can lose grip quickly at the rate I’m goin’
I can’t seem to find my way out of this damn depression
I try to break free and I live spontaneously
Wont you tell me when’s the grass get greener
When’s the grass gets greener
I can lose grip quickly at the rate I’m goin’
I can’t seem to find my way out of this damn depression
I try to break free and I live spontaneously
Wont you tell me when’s the grass get greener
When’s the grass gets greener
