Track Name: Get There In Time
Verse 1:
You’re so far behind me (how healthy)
that thoughts of us and all our Sunday morning memories
have all begun to escape me. They’ve changed me
Yeah that’s right they’ve all starting to fade away

Chorus:
When I never thought that I’d
be strong enough to live a life
where you were no longer like a thorn in my side
but I guess we all get there in time
Yeah I guess we all get there in time

Verse 2:
I no longer torture myself with a third eye, inside
The one that I got with you always hangin’ out in my mind
You were oh so charming and so so tempting, but devil of a guide
Through, not to the light, but into the cold, harsh night

Chorus:
When I never thought that I’d
be strong enough to live a life
where you were no longer like a thorn in my side
but I guess we all get there in time
Yeah I guess we all get there in time

Bridge:
What I’ve learned on my journey in life so far is that
once enough time has come to pass
the specifics of what ails you begin to lose shape and melt away
And I’ve discovered only I contain all the power to change my fate
And I’ve found that the grief it doesn’t last
And that it’s never gonna be too late to start again

Chorus:
When I never thought that I’d
be strong enough to live a life
where you were no longer like a thorn in my side
but I guess we all get there in time

Chorus:
When I never thought that I’d
be strong enough to live a life
where you were no longer like a thorn in my side
but I guess we all get there in time

Chorus:
When I never thought that I’d
be strong enough to live a life
where you were no longer like a thorn in my side
but I guess we all get there in time
Yeah I guess we all get there in time
Yeah I guess we all get there in time
Track Name: I Shouldn't Love You
Verse 1:
Them god damned throbbing pecs
You got protruding from your enormous chest
Make me tight in the trunks
All night as we bump
And grind it up
I move to the beat of your love
These god awful denim jeans
How the hell would I have known that they’d start to shrink?
And get this tight on me
I’ve gotta stop daydreaming
When I know it’s unnatural, we just cant be

Hook 1:
I get so confused when I’m with you

Chorus:
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
I shouldn’t love you
I shouldn’t love you like I do, but I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, but I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, but I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
but I do

Verse 2:
Everything that you say
Only turns me on, and I use it as foreplay
Make me hung like a buck
It’s like ecstasy and you’re my drug
I’ll lick everything that you touch
Silly mundane pleasantries
Can we skip to the part where you’re wrestling me?
And rip our shirts off like fiends
Or like we’re both 17
I gotta stop, this isn’t healthy, you and I just cant be

Hook 2:
I get so aroused when I’m with you

Chorus:
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
I shouldn’t love you
I shouldn’t love you like I do, but I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, but I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, but I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
but I do

Bridge:
Lets get into a groove
Dude, who you think you’re trying to fool?
Hey, where you think you’re going so soon?
Baby I’m just getting started with you
Bro got me reaching for the tube
And it doesn’t matter what he do
He always put me in a mood

Chorus:
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
I shouldn’t love you
I shouldn’t love you like I do, but I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, but I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, but I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
but I do

Chorus:
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
I shouldn’t love you
I shouldn’t love you like I do, but I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, but I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, but I do
I shouldn’t love you like I do, like I do
but I do
Track Name: Happy Song
Verse 1:
I want a happy song
One good memory just to look back on
as things start going wrong
Oh oh oh
I want a happy song
Something good to think about while I’m lost
My heart’s turning to frost
Oh oh oh

Hook:
I’m feeling ugly up in here, up in me
It’s almost time to bare my truth to you finally

Chorus:
Before everything turns to shit
Before my life it turns upside-down
Before all of me goes within
Just one happy song to lose this frown

Verse 2:
I need a happy song
Just 1 thing to take with me when I move on
And to leave the ones I love
Oh oh oh
I need a happy song
to help the strugglers all to keep strong
And never jump the wall
Oh oh oh

Hook:
I’m feeling ugly up in here, up in me
It’s almost time to bare my truth to you finally

Chorus:
Before everything turns to shit
Before my life it turns upside-down
Before all of me goes within
Just one happy song to lose this frown

Chorus:
Before everything turns to shit
Before my life it turns upside-down
Before all of me goes within
Just one happy song to lose this frown

Bridge:
I’m not asking, I’m begging for a happy song
I’m not basking, I’m in need of a happy song

Chorus:
Before everything turns to shit
Before my life it turns upside-down
Before all of me goes within
Just one happy song to lose this frown

Chorus:
Before everything turns to shit
Before my life it turns upside-down
Before all of me goes within
Just one happy song to lose this frown

Chorus:
Before everything turns to shit
Before my life it turns upside-down
Before all of me goes within
Just one happy song to lose this frown
Track Name: Fucked Little Life
Verse 1:
I wanna be there for him when he cries
I wanna be with him and lock into his beautiful thighs
I gotta feel up on him just to see his bedroom eyes
And I’ma be there with him when he hits the hay tonight

Chorus:
I fell in love at a time
in my fucked little life
Where I thought that I’d die
And I’m just so glad that we met
I’m never sad now that you’ve got my back
I just feel bad not everybody has what we have

Verse 2:
I wanna be there with him when he smiles
Because seeing it always makes me feel like a child

Hook:
like not giving 2 fucks for awhile
I just love his whole attitude, he’s so so wild
Yo we always have fun, and we can go for miles
Now that’s real love and it’s always in style

Chorus:
I fell in love at a time
in my fucked little life
Where I thought that I’d die
And I’m just so glad that we met
I’m never sad now that you’ve got my back
I just feel bad not everybody has what we have

[Break]

Chorus:
I fell in love at a time
in my fucked little life
Where I thought that I’d die
And I’m just so glad that we met
I’m never sad now that you’ve got my back
I just feel bad not everybody has what we have

L-Chorus:
I fell in love at a time
in my fucked little life
Where I thought that I’d die
And I’m just so glad that we met
I’m never sad now that you’ve got my back
I just feel bad not everybody has what we have

Chorus:
I fell in love at a time
in my fucked little life
Where I thought that I’d die
And I’m just so glad that we met
I’m never sad now that you’ve got my back
I just feel bad not everybody has what we have
Track Name: The Thing
Verse 1:
So here’s the thing:
I tried my very best to get something back from you.
So I’ll move on walk out that door and be free from this, and all of your gloomy doom.

Hook 1:
You said you loved and needed me,
but you never told the truth in reality.
You said you loved and needed me,
but then you’d have an excuse about everything.

Chorus 1:
I’ll be deaf
to you should you ever call
when you need someone to talk
to. You’ll have to find someone
who wont mind it if you log
in all those countless long
hours outside of the one
who you’re supposed to love,
but you didn’t love me at all
No you didn’t love me at all.

Verse 2:
So here’s the thing:
You promised me a bunch of shit that you never delivered on.
So now it’s time for goodbye, have yourself a fine day, so long.

Hook 2:
I know you said all you needed was a little break, some time apart, just because,
but I gave you that and, in turn, got fucked. So much pain all along.

Chorus 2:
I’ll be deaf
to you should you ever call
when you need someone to talk
to. You’ll have to find someone
who wont mind it if you log
in all those countless long
hours outside of the one
who you’re supposed to love
but you didn’t love me at all
I’ll be deaf
to you should you ever call
when you need someone to talk
to. You’ll have to find someone
who wont mind it when you log
in all those countless long
hours outside of the one
who you’re supposed to love

Bridge:
Love is a beauty we all strive to possess, but love is fragile, and we shouldn’t obsess, ‘cause here’s the thing: My dignity,., I’ve got so little left now. It’s a shame, I have to walk away, and try my best to forget.

Chorus 3:
I’ll be deaf
to you should you ever call
when you need someone to talk
to. You’ll have to find someone
who wont mind it when you log
in all those crazy long
hours outside of the one
who you’re supposed to love
but you didn’t love me at all
I’ll be deaf
to you should you ever call
when you need someone to talk
to. You’ll have to find someone
who wont mind it when you log
in all those crazy long
hours outside of the one
who you’re supposed to love
Track Name: Tommy Had to Go
Verse 1:
One day Tommy was here
Then the next day he simply wasn’t
He came and went as quick as he came
But while he was here he would always entertain us

Hook 1:
He’d get really, really bored and sometimes hard
He’d hop on cam and take us all too far
Make us use our hands, and fly us to mars
Wishin’ he would stand and show us more than arms

Link:
Each night we’d all thank him and award him some merits
‘Cause he was so fucking hot
And he spoke so highly of his grandparents
He’s just the type of guy you’d love to introduce to mom

Chorus:
But now he’s gone and
there’s no way to ever know
if he will come back home
Because one day
he just decided to
up and leave and
never gave anyone a vote
And so we still don’t know
why Tommy had to go
He didn’t really ‘have to’ though
Not sure why Tommy chose to go
Tommy had to go

Verse 2:
Not sure if he’ll ever be heard from again
but I sure hope so
Cause with those curves layin’ on that bed
I’d be in the woods looking for his ghost

Hook 2:
He’d get jumpy and lost and sometimes stalked
And he’d lose his keys and get chased by dogs
Walking through the trees, almost always soft
He was, such a hottie can’t believe he’s gone

Link:
Each night we’d all thank him and award him some merits
‘Cause he was so fucking hot
And he spoke so highly of his grandparents
He’s just the type of guy you’d love to introduce to mom

Chorus:
But now he’s gone and
there’s no way to ever know
if he will come back home
Because one day
he just decided to
up and leave and
never gave anyone a vote
And so we still don’t know
why Tommy had to go
He didn’t really ‘have to’ though
Not sure why Tommy chose to go
That’s right Tommy had to go
Track Name: Unrequited, Not Understood
Verse 1:
Can you see my symmetry;
Do you see my shapes and lines?
Can’t you see the work that I’ve put in?
Can you hear my meek hellos?
Don’t you hear those feeble sounds?
Well that’s just my love, it’s weakening.

Chorus:
Did you feel my broken heart unpeel
And see its unraveling pain revealed
After you decided that I be pushed aside?
And did you sense that my last chance was gone
Because you robbed me of all of your love?
I was left behind, and you wouldn’t say why.

Verse 2:
Do you feel my tepid skin?
Can you feel how cold it is?
Do you feel the heat as it subsides?
Don’t you see how hard I’ve tried?
Can you see me drown and die?
Can’t you feel my heart beating “forget”

Chorus:
Did you feel my broken heart unpeel
And see its unraveling pain revealed
After you decided that I be pushed aside?
And did you sense that my last chance was gone
Because you robbed me of all of your love?
I was left behind, and you wouldn’t say why.

Bridge:
Can you hear the fissures tear?
Throughout my heart as it rips apart?

Chorus:
Did you feel my broken heart unpeel
And see its unraveling pain revealed
After you decided that I be pushed aside?
And did you sense that my last chance was gone
Because you robbed me of all of your love?
I was left behind, and you wouldn’t say why.

Chorus:
Did you feel my broken heart unpeel
And see its unraveling pain revealed
After you decided that I be pushed aside?
And did you sense that my last chance was gone
Because you robbed me of all of your love?
I was left behind, and you wouldn’t say why.
Track Name: Not Ever
Verse 1:
Hey You, I stopped putting so much love into us
‘Cause evidence showed that you didn’t like my love
And I realized what was really going on thus,
I stopped giving you what I figured you just didn’t want

Hook:
My constant reassurances
My uplifting compliments
Someone who’d counteract
all the hate you had for yourself

Chorus:
I loved your ass so much
But you didn’t reciprocate my love
Not ever
No, not ever
And I kept it up for far too long
Smiling the whole time even though I got none
Not ever
No, not ever

Verse 2:
So look, mister pompous jerk-wad
How’d it feel to receive my fake façade
Selfishly stealing tidbits of me like oh my fucking god
While I stroked your fragile ego and then would nod

Hook 2:
With my constant reassurances
My uplifting compliments
Someone who would counteract
all the hate you had for yourself

Chorus:
I loved your ass so much
But you didn’t reciprocate my love
Not ever
No, not ever
And I kept it up for far too long
Smiling the whole time even though I got none
Not ever
No, not ever

Bridge:
What about me?
If only you put half as much work into us
What about me?
Maybe then I’d feel just a tad more loved than I was
What about me?
If I’d only had the knowledge then that I have now
What about me?
I’d have had the will to pack my stuff up and move out
What about me?
What about me?
If only you put half as much work into us
What about me?
Maybe then I’d feel just a tad more loved than I was
What about me?
If I’d only had the knowledge then that I have now
What about me?
I’d have had the will to pack my stuff up and move out
What about me?

Chorus:
I loved your ass so much
But you didn’t reciprocate my love
Not ever
No, not ever
And I kept it up for far too long
Smiling the whole time even though I got none
Not ever
No, not ever

Chorus:
I loved your ass so much
But you didn’t reciprocate my love
Not ever
No, not ever
And I kept it up for far too long
Smiling the whole time even though I got none
Not ever
No, not ever
Track Name: Still(ness)
Intro:
It's a barrage of insanity
It’s a barrage of insanity

Verse 1:
My mind is fucking screaming
“Who’s gonna shoot the banshee?”
I wander between the trunks of the trees
I sit on my knees upon some moss and dream

Chorus:
If I lifted my head up and let all the moisture into my skin
would I find that the stillness is indeed what lifts me up in the end?
If I closed my eyes and sat back and then I let it all sink in
would I find that its silence that will bring me my desired peacefulness?

Verse 2:
The bark scratches at my back
and the fog rolls under my heels
I think I'm starting to get the knack
In the pond's reflection, I see all the
many faces and various places
But I know it wont be long now
‘cause standing still for so long invites chaos
one smoothly thrown rock erases

Chorus:
If I lifted my head up and let all the moisture into my skin
would I find that the stillness is indeed what lifts me up in the end?
If I closed my eyes and sat back and then I let it all sink in
would I find that its silence that will bring me my desired peacefulness?

Bridge:
If you take each day as it comes
you'll find that you can and will in fact be strong
If you live not in revenge but in love
then you’ll take comfort in knowing that you‘re better off

Chorus:
If I lifted my head up and let all the moisture into my skin
would I find that the stillness is indeed what lifts me up in the end?
If I closed my eyes and sat back and then I let it all sink in
would I find that its silence that will bring me my desired peacefulness?

Chorus:
If I lifted my head up and let all the moisture into my skin
would I find that the stillness is indeed what lifts me up in the end?
If I closed my eyes and sat back and then I let it all sink in
would I find that its silence that will bring me my desired peacefulness?
Track Name: In the Nuts
Verse 1:
He lies, though you may never know it
‘cause he’s sly, and wouldn’t let it show if
you tried, bargaining with him.
So cry, it’s better you learn now, that you’re not a fit

Chorus:
I fucking hated your guts
and everything that you stood for
I should have kicked you in the nuts
all the way to the front door

Verse 2:
He’s not shy, so don’t fucking let him trick you
‘cause he might, and dumbstruck me, I didn’t have a clue
He was disguised, like talking with 3 screws loose
A bad guy. I swear every word I say is true

Chorus:
I fucking hated your guts
and everything that you stood for
I should have kicked you in the nuts
all the way to the front door

Chorus:
I fucking hated your guts
and everything that you stood for
I should have kicked you in the nuts
all the way to the front door

Bridge:
He’s not right, so tread those waters lightly
‘cause he lives life in spite, and his every action is so deadly

Chorus:
I fucking hated your guts
and everything that you stood for
I should have kicked you in the nuts
all the way to the front door
Track Name: Sometimes I'm Not Self-Hating
Verse 1:
Sometimes I lose sight of all that’s good with me
I get so down, and pound myself for all my insanity
But every once in awhile comes clarity,., Finally!

Chorus:
I’m not so bad when I’m not this sad
And I’m not so dirty that I’ll never be clean again
I’m worth a million pearls, spread the word across the world
I’m never had and I am just so glad
I’m not too washed up and unable to obtain a man
I’m worth a thousand diamonds, pick me, I’m worth a trillion violets

Verse 2:
Sometimes I lose faith in all that's pure and true
Guess I'm afraid to live again; to start anew
But then my sun lights up like fuel
Shines bright like jewels, I know I'm not through

Chorus:
I’m not so bad when I’m not this sad
And I’m not so dirty that I’ll never be clean again
I’m worth a million pearls, spread the word across the world
I’m never had and I am just so glad
I’m not too washed up and unable to obtain a man
I’m worth a thousand diamonds, pick me, I’m worth a trillion violets

Bridge:
sometimes it’s easy to lose track
of all the little things that
make me uniquely me
But then I see how beautiful the world is
and I start feeling this burst of energy
People tend to get all wrapped up in, perfection
Getting their nails and their hair did, I’m sayin’
Which leads them all to major disappointment
Then they all go ballistic
Get out of that mindset, while you still can

Chorus:
I’m not so bad when I’m not this sad
And I’m not so dirty that I’ll never be clean again
I’m worth a million pearls, spread the word across the world
I’m never had and I am just so glad
I’m not too washed up and unable to obtain a man
I’m worth a thousand diamonds, pick me, I’m worth a trillion violets

Chorus:
I’m not so bad when I’m not this sad
And I’m not so dirty that I’ll never be clean again
I’m worth a million pearls, spread the word across the world
I’m never had and I am just so glad
I’m not too washed up and unable to obtain a man
I’m worth a thousand diamonds, pick me, I’m worth a trillion violets
Track Name: Back Door
Verse 1:
It’s okay you don’t need me after all
It’s okay that you’re gone now so long as you don’t go to far
It’s okay my heads up, I will try to remain strong
for you and me some day

Hook:
I don’t wanna come to your back door tonight or any night
I don’t wanna come to your back door to hide from love

Chorus:
I don’t know why I must hide my love for you
I can’t get why you would care if people knew
Bae they already know how I feel about you

Verse 2:
So okay you don’t like me anymore
It’s okay ‘cause I’m willing to let you go
though it pains me to see the love in your eyes
and know it’s not for me anymore

Hook:
I don’t wanna come to your back door tonight or any night
I don’t wanna come to your back door to hide from love

Chorus:
I don’t know why I must hide my love for you
I can’t get why you would care if people knew
Babe they already know how I feel about you

[Break]

Chorus:
I don’t know why I must hide my love for you
I can’t get why you would care if people knew
I don’t know why I must hide my love for you
I can’t get why you would care if people knew
It’s like I said they already know how I feel about you
Track Name: Lost
Verse 1:
Lost in the bleakness of every day (I’m lost in this bleakness x2)
Lost in this disarray, a fogy haze of my own dismay (I’m lost in disarray x2)

Chorus 1:
I lost myself within my tears
I never felt so fucking lost (I never felt so lost)
Until you came my way
And things began to change
And now I’m lost
I’m just lost
Simply lost here
I’m lost

Verse 2:
Lost deep inside with my wretched heartache (Inside my heartaches x2)
Lost far within all of my fears and sorrows I’m sobbing away (I’m busy sobbing x2)

Chorus 2:
I lost myself within this pain
I never felt such jagged rain (I never felt such jagged rain)
Until you came my way
And saved the day
but now I’m lost
I’m just lost
Simply lost here
I’m just lost

Bridge:
Mmm
Before I met you I was lost
But now that I’ve found you I’m even more lost
I get lost in your eyes, in your touch
I get lost in your light, I’m a fiend for your love now that’s right
I’m just lost.
I’m just lost.

[Mashup of all 3 Choruses & Bridge]
Track Name: Where's Our Love
Verse 1:
It’s been such a long time since ya been around
Can you tell me where we went wrong
I remember when it was fun and games
when our love was always the same

Chorus:
Where’s our love?
Where’s our love?

Verse 2:
You told me your secrets and I told you mine
I thought our love was going to go on long after time
I sit and stare out the window wondering if you’re alright

Chorus:
Where’s our love?
Where’s our love?
Where’s our love?

Verse 3:
when will I see your beautiful eyes looking back into mine
And not at someone else’s you know that hurts me with a passion
When will I hear those 3 words you were saying to me
Not long ago, My fragile heart will wait and die slow

Chorus:
Where’s our love?
Where’s our love?
Where’s our love?

Verse 4:
I remember once before we ever together
I saw you with someone and wanted to rip my hair out
I’ll sit and listen to your voice on the tape you once gave me
But I’ll never hear it the same as it once was
Where has our love gone?

Chorus:
Where’s our love?
Where’s our love?
Where’s our love?
Track Name: #NotMyPresident
Verse 1:
Go back to your tower and stay the fuck out of power. Guys like you are liars, chauvinistic pigs with crossed wires, and big ugly wigs, and wives who look like flat tires. Okay, that was a dis, guess now I’ll get fired by the president. But I only aspired to be just like him; A bully. I swear, I do solemnly promise this.

Chorus:
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president

Verse 2:
He’s that fat kid with the magnifying glass, and we’re just homos; his second class ants. And he’s a first class act. Hey wait, call the imports back, we need to get some makeup on this man. We ‘bout to do some TV again.
Reality never ends. Neither does realty, but then you knew that, so then you quit knowing that your fat ass will go back to it.

Chorus:
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president

Link:
Whewie, that tower is towering over me. Making me feel all sorts of inadequate and shit. Whew, gotta get me outta here; Back to the ghetto.

Verse 3:
You ain’t ever broke a sweat in your whole life. You know that American’s actually work, right? Unholy hours into the night. Life ain’t always about pussy and spite. No one in that tower represents me, and the US of A is full of Bradley’s. Speaking of which, it should be policy that if you can’t pronounce “America” you shouldn’t be the first lady.

Chorus:
Not my president (I’m just saying)
Not my president (I’m not hating)
Not my president (‘sAll I’m saying)
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president

Bridge:
Three things we know trump ain’t qualified to do: Hair, makeup, and the presidency, too. Hitler (you got) beef? I’ll off you, Jew! Spic, I’ve got a wall for you! I’ve got Putin, and he’s got lube. You can catch us on the tube groping Miss USA’s boobs.

Chorus:
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president

Spoken:
You guys wanna lose some weight? (Uh-huh)
I’ve got some exercise routines for you. (Uh-huh)
Get you right in the spirit, and they’re patriotic.
Do the Hitler
The Hitler
Now do the Trump
Trump
Do the Hitler
And now the Trump
That’s right the Trump

Chorus:
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
Not my president
