Track Name: Scream
Verse 1:
In daze I can see why I fell for you
But wide awake I can only see I was a fool
A million bee stings all at once happening
Barbed wire fences running all across me

Hook 1:
And I find no comfort in this reality
And I see that no ones harmless or even loving

Chorus 1:
And I wanna scream
But all I can do is bleed

Verse 2:
In a way I can almost understand my unwarranted
attraction to the likes of an egotist like you
But like a mile-high tsunami gaining up on me
You were figuratively strangling me until I couldn’t breathe

Hook 2:
And nothing settles well at all within me
And So I have nothing at all to say well not good anyway

Chorus 2:
And I wanna breathe
But all I can do is scream

Bridge:
So why do I still love you so
When you were never nice you know
And why did you fucking go
Because you like putting on shows

Chorus 1:
And I wanna scream
But all I can do is bleed

Chorus 2:
And I wanna breathe
But all I can do is scream
Track Name: Bradley Voorhees (Featuring Jeannie) - Tried to Hold
Verse 1:
Those days when you whispered
Into my ear they were so loving
Those things like when you held me
Warm memories so captivating

Chorus:
I tried to hold onto you for so long
But you pushed me right out of your life
I tried to hold onto you for so long
But you blurred me right out of your sight

Verse 2:
I’d fret over our fighting
It was so frightening
I was so afraid I’d lose
The one thing that made me happy
You were so classy why’d you go away

Chorus:
I tried to hold onto you for so long
(Tried to hold ya, tried to hold ya)
But you pushed me right out of your life
I tried to hold onto you for so long
(Tried to hold ya, tried to hold ya)
But you blurred me right out of your sight

Bridge:
Those forever promises stick in my head
I never expected us to have an end

Chorus (x2):
I tried to hold onto you for so long
(So long)
But you pushed me right out of your life
(Right out of your life)
I tried to hold onto you for so long
(So long)
But you blurred me right out of your sight
(Right out of your sight)
Track Name: Evermore
Verse 1:
I fell in love with you that night
Held you close looked into your eyes
Told you everything would be alright
How did I know it was a lie
I still think about you all the time
Yes you’re always on my mind
But baby I’m not gonna lie
You were just a curse right in my life

Hook:
Hard to believe years have passed now

Chorus:
and I still love you evermore
And I still love you even more

Verse 2:
I always knew our life conflicts
I knew our love came with limits
But I just could not help it
I fell hard for you nonetheless
And each day I feared the inevitable
But I conquered all the impossible
And never let my spunky spirits fold
Even though I knew the time would come to let you go

Hook:
Hard to believe years have passed now

Chorus:
and I still love you evermore
And I still love you even more

Bridge:
I knew that our time was short
The back of my head was sore
And I didn’t wanna hurt anymore
But I kept loving you evermore

Chorus:
and I still love you evermore
And I still love you even more
Track Name: Stroke You
Verse 1:
I did everything to stroke your ego
But it just wasn’t enough
Then I tried to make you fuckin’ feel good
But now I’m fed up

Chorus 1:
‘Cause I gave up on you. Must be you’re not memorable
Yes I gave up on you ‘cause you’re a numb asshole

Verse 2:
I put so much hard work into you
But it just didn’t matter
‘Cause you wanted me to erase it all
Because your life’s just sadder

Chorus 2:
You can pretend that your past is not a part of you
But how dare you ask that of me. I’m not your tool

Bridge:
You’re there in the past
I’ll never stroke you again
You will lay to rest
Yes you’re left for dead
I’ve had it
Yes you get
You get no more chances

Chorus 1:
Cause I gave up on you. Must be you’re not memorable
Yes I gave up on you ‘cause you’re a numb asshole

Chorus 2:
You can pretend that your past is not a part of you
But how dare you ask that of me. I’m not your tool
Track Name: Bradley Voorhees (Featuring Jeannie) - Un-accepting
Verse 1:
I’m captured here in your accusing doubts
In your negative vision of who I am right now

Hook 1:
That’s not the way I picture myself
But how would you know
You were never around
Never around

Chorus:
I’m fine with me
Why can’t you see
You’re un-accepting
So just let me be
I’m fine with me
Why can’t you see
You’re un-accepting
So just let me be

Verse 2:
Do you really know what your angers about
Maybe you should go and figure it out

Hook 2:
Are you hiding something about yourself
That causes you to
Always put me down
Put me down

Chorus:
I’m fine with me
Why can’t you see
You’re un-accepting
So just let me be
I’m fine with me
Why can’t you see
You’re un-accepting
So just let me be
Track Name: Lets Get Married
Verse 1:
My path has always been
to find attraction within
the best damn man that I could find
My goal has always been
to find a guy with whom I could settle down with

Hook 1:
Think ahead
Draw up the divorce papers beforehand
Just incase
Even though I’ll never love another man
And then

Chorus:
Lets get married

Verse 2:
My analytical nature has helped me
weed out all the shrubs
But also hurts me consequently
It leaves me with no one

Hook 2:
But careful
Draw up the prenup and cut up the Visas
Be cautious
Re-up your freedom when enough is enough
And then

Chorus:
Lets get married

Bridge:
It ain’t anybody’s job to fix up my head
It ain’t anybody’s job

Chorus:
Lets get married
Track Name: You've Got to Have Hope & Pride (Give 'em Hope 8)
Verse 1:
I used to be that weirdo in the shadows
I was that kid you never knew but that you’d always hassle
I tell ya my shrinks got rich off my gigantic battles
I wish I’d known what I know now and perhaps not been so rattled

Hook 1:
I had to feel like I was in a world where I belonged
It’s something I never got ‘til after I grew up

Chorus:
All the way from stonewall, back to the stone age
We’ve fought for equality for our oppressed community
With nothing but visions of love on our minds
just take it in stride - you’ve gotta have hope and pride

Verse 2:
Perhaps you feel like you’re the black sheep of your family
Or maybe feel like you’re the outcast that no one fancies
Well even though psychiatry may be a noble profession
The cure comes to pass once you realize that there’s nothing wrong with you

Hook 2:
You’ve got to feel like you are in a place where you are loved
You’ve got to know that you’re perfect just the way you are

Chorus:
All the way from stonewall back to the stone age
We’ve fought for equality for our oppressed community
With nothing but visions of love on our minds
just take it in stride - you’ve gotta have hope and pride
Track Name: Ease My Pain
Verse 1:
I can go for months without giving into you or your demented shit
Even though I shouldn’t have to
I can shrug it off for hours at a time but not without consequences
I’m beginning to crack and bruise

Hook:
I’ve spoke these words a million times
In a thousand different ways
Shocking it doesn’t ease my pain

Chorus:
You do not exist
You’re only in my head
So then how the hell am I
Over-affected

Verse 2:
Every now and then I swear I can feel the walls a-closing in
And it’s just not fair
And it seems that they attack me when I’m already at my weakest
And you don’t care

Hook:
I’ve spoke these words a million times
In a thousand different ways
Shocking it doesn’t ease my pain

Chorus:
You do not exist
You’re only in my head
So then how the hell am I
Over-affected

Bridge:
So many many times I’ve hid my face in my palms and cried
So many many times I’d contemplate my demise, terrified
So many many times I’ve hid my face in my palms and cried
So many many times I’d contemplate my demise, terrified

Chorus:
You do not exist
You’re only in my head
So then how the hell am I
Over-affected

Chorus:
You do not exist
You’re only in my head
So then how the hell am I
Over-affected
Track Name: Dear Brother
Verse 1:
Dear Brother
You’ve been gone a really long time
And you’ve missed so much
Even the start of my life
Your parents
well they got married
and had more children
and just lived

Hook:
But our father I know they say he is a good dad
has banished me all because I am a gay man

Chorus:
I wonder if you would have stuck up for me
I wonder what would be your sexuality
I wonder if you and I would still be talking
I wonder what kind of person you would be
I wonder if you would have stuck up for me
I wonder what would be your sexuality
I wonder if you and I would still be talking
I wonder what kind of person you would be

Verse 2:
Our father
had a thing for the ladies
and strayed from your mom
and had 2 more babies
and I’m one of them
Hi my name is Bradley
Wish I could have known ya
But I never did sadly

Hook:
And our father I know they say he is a good dad
has banished me all because I am a gay man

Chorus:
I wonder if you would have stuck up for me
I wonder what would be your sexuality
I wonder if you and I would still be talking
I wonder what kind of person you would be
I wonder if you would have stuck up for me
I wonder what would be your sexuality
I wonder if you and I would still be talking
I wonder what kind of person you would be

Track Name: Voorhees (Theme-Song)
Oh-em-gee we’re octuplets
Under one roof, 8 of us

One day we found our birth mom’s obit
Then they showed up and asked to move in
And even though we didn’t even know them
How could we say no, we were 8 twins
Though we all grownups, we all just met
And no, trust I’m not BS’in’
But getting to know thems been fun

Livin life with a family full of strangers
Drinkin coffee at a table full of strangers
Trying to shower in the morning spells ‘danger’
Sometimes I pull my hair out
But I still gotta find hot guys to date
And I gotta keep ‘em off my sibling’s plates
But what can I say, 8 siblings live with me
