Track Name: Another Lonely Rockstar
Intro:
Here we go again
Here we go again
Here we go again

Verse 1:
Another lonely night
With my filthy appetite
Just me and Rosy Palm
Her and I gon get it on

Hook 1:
Heat up lay out
Got my KY by my side
Slide up and put
And then leave my shorts to dry

Chorus:
I give up why try
There go another lonely rockstar on the road tonight
I can’t mate there’s no time
There go another lonely rockstar on the road tonight

Verse 2:
I can’t help but think when I rush up out of bed the next day
to be checked I didn’t leave a tip for the cleaning lady
Did I miss some on my face or did I manage to wipe it clean
In my forced hurry out of that place today

Hook 2:
Show up to the club to play but it’s dead
Fuck it I didn’t wanna play anyway
Sit down drink myself up
Drink my loneliness away

Chorus:
I give up why try
There go another lonely rockstar on the road tonight
I can’t mate there’s no time
There go another lonely rockstar on the road tonight

Bridge:
My legs is shakin
My shit be achin
I’m burning up as I be strokin’
But I can’t help it I’m so addicted
Though I’ll regret this in the morning time

Chorus:
I give up why try
There go another lonely rockstar on the road tonight
I can’t mate there’s no time
There go another lonely rockstar on the road tonight
Track Name: Be My Man
Verse 1:
You’ve gotta shape on up you’ve gotta be the best that you can if you wanna be my man
You’ve gotta step it up and bring some hot romance with your ass if you wanna be my man

Hook:
I’m tired of games and I hate being played
So if you change your ways you can stay

Chorus:
You want a hot boy in the locker room
You want a sweet dude rubbin all up over you
You want a nice guy to become your groom
But alls you gets a man who becomes your doom
You want a hot boy in the locker room
You want a sweet dude rubbin all up over you
You want a nice guy to become your groom
But alls you gets a man who becomes your doom

Verse 2:
You gotta live on up to the expectations that I set if you wanna be my man
You better grab yourself a handy-dandy notebook and pen
To write down all the things I said if you wanna be my man

Hook:
I’m tired of games and I hate being played
So if you change your ways you can stay

Chorus:
You want a hot boy in the locker room
You want a sweet dude rubbin all up over you
You want a nice guy to become your groom
But alls you gets a man who becomes your doom
You want a hot boy in the locker room
You want a sweet dude rubbin all up over you
You want a nice guy to become your groom
But alls you gets a man who becomes your doom

Bridge:
I think about the times I’ve lost the men that I’ve loved
Several several guys
who have come and gone
just because
they were not enough
To fill me up with losts of love
And to patch up all my broken stuff
To just flat out rescue me

Chorus:
You want a hot boy in the locker room
You want a sweet dude rubbin all up over you
You want a nice guy to become your groom
But alls you gets a man who becomes your doom
You want a hot boy in the locker room
You want a sweet dude rubbin all up over you
You want a nice guy to become your groom
But alls you gets a man who becomes your doom
Track Name: Forever Single
Verse 1:
Same guy with a different name
It’s the same jerk with a different face
He tells the same lies no matter the place
Cause you are all designed to be the same

Hook:
And I’m so fuckin sick of trying to trust
The fuckin guy when I know I’ll have no love
Cause all men were designed the same
Fuckin racks my brain

Chorus:
This can’t be my fate
Why was I brought into this awful place
It really sucks I’m gonna stay this way
Forever single and lonely

Verse 2:
Same man with a different age
It’s the same jerk in a different decade
He treats me in all of the same ways
He causes me exactly the same type of pain

Hook:
And I’m so fuckin sick of trying to trust
The fuckin guy when I know I’ll have no love
Cause all men were designed the same
Fuckin racks my brain

Chorus:
This can’t be my fate
Why was I brought into this awful place
It really sucks I’m gonna stay this way
Forever single and lonely

Bridge:
This guy aint right
That dude’s not cool

Chorus:
This can’t be my fate
Why was I brought into this awful place
It really sucks I’m gonna stay this way
Forever single and lonely
Track Name: Bradley Voorhees Featuring Adam Mace - Hope Again
Verse 1:
Yo I ever read the paper and I do not watch the news
I don’t wanna know what happened to you
I keep hearing all these rumors and I don’t know if they are true
Cause I try to keep my distance from the fucking truth
Yo I was so darn happy when I heard that yall had moved
I immediately took the doors off my booth
Finally no more stealing while everybodies off to school
I was ecstatic to get rid of you fools

Chorus:
Yo here’s to happy households
Well at least happy at mine
Yes so long as you stay away everything’s fine
You can’t beat the feeling of peaceful it is divine
I hope again to never see you for all time

Still drink coffee in the morning but I do not ever fight
It’d be weird though cause I’m now living the single life
The perfect kind of design for a family who’s music takes time
Aint got no time for the talentless kind
Some say they really like you so I shot them between the eyes
Aint got no time for retarded slime
When you whipped out your little peter all I had to do was whip out mine
It would always make you feel shitty and cry

Chorus:
Yo here’s to happy households
Well at least happy at mine
Yes so long as you stay away everything’s fine
You can’t beat the feeling of peaceful it is divine
I hope again to never see you for all time

Bridge:
Why were you so damn frustrating
Is it because of all your lies
Oh maybe baby some day I’ll be back again

Chorus:
Yo here’s to happy households
Well at least happy at mine
Yes so long as you stay away everything’s fine
You can’t beat the feeling of peaceful it is divine
I hope again to never see you for all time

Chorus:
Yo here’s to happy households
Well at least happy at mine
Yes so long as you stay away everything’s fine
You can’t beat the feeling of peaceful it is divine
I hope again to never see you for all time
Track Name: I'll Always be Your Dad
Verse 1:
Yo I can’t help it
you’re a part of me
and will always be
you’re my everything
You’re my sweet serenity
And I hope that you know
you can always confide in me
Put all your trust in me
lay all your burdens on me
Because I’ll always be here for you
For as long as I live
For as long as I can
For as long as I breath
I’ll be your dad
And cause daddy’s here to love and cherish you
And to protect you
And you know you can always count on that

Chorus:
And I know I’m old and out of fad
And I know sometimes I make you mad
It’s cause I have to keep you in check
Cause I’ll always I’ll always be your dad
And I know childhood can be so rough
Parents can be tough and friends are hard to trust
And when you need someone just remember
I’ll always be your dad

Verse 2:
I’ll support you any way I can
You’re so passionate
about animals
and all of your friends
Yes you are
And so you said when you grow up
You wan be a vet
I’m happy you care so much
I support you in that
You’ve got such a big heart in every single way
I get so sad when I see you cry when you don’t get your way
And this dad always will
Yes I always will no matter what your passion is
There isn’t a reason that’s just the way love works between a daughter and her dad

Chorus:
And I know I’m old and out of fad
And I know sometimes I make you mad
It’s cause I have to keep you in check
Cause I’ll always I’ll always be your dad
And I know childhood can be so rough
Parents can be tough and friends are hard to trust
And when you need someone just remember
I’ll always be your dad

Bridge:
You don’t need to worry
Worry about nothing
You shouldn’t need to ever cry
Cry about nothing
You don’t need to be scared
Scared over nothing
You won’t need to run
Not ever run away from nothing

Chorus:
And I know I’m old and out of fad
And I know sometimes I make you mad
It’s cause I have to keep you in check
Cause I’ll always I’ll always be your dad
And I know childhood can be so rough
Parents can be tough and friends are hard to trust
And when you need someone just remember
I’ll always be your dad

I was so scared inside and out
You were the only one

And you’ve been there ever since

And I’m stupid
Stupid for letting you in
I should have known better
Everything’s made to end

I’m so ashamed at how things turned out
I swore I’d never fall in love again

Tell me does this pain ever end

Chorus:
And I’m stupid
Stupid for letting you in
I should have known better
Everything’s made to end

Seems I’m never right about nothin

Shame on my song
Shame on all my wrongs

Yo isn’t it ironic
This chorus is for you

Track Name: Pushed Out
Verse 1:
I’m just lookin out out of my window
Feelin down for no reason again
I’m just doin what what I do most every day
When I’m being attacked by the enemy

Hook:
By my inner me
My other identity

Chorus:
I’m just poppin pills the doctor gave
Wonderin where on earth she studied
Wondering where the hell she got her degree
Feelin pushed the fuck out of my own brain
Thinking nothing can ever fix me
Why can’t a pill fix my reality
Man I hope tonight I’m able to sleep
Better yet here’s to sweeter dreams

I can’t come alive no not during these times
The darkness grows inside of me and clouds up my mind
Should I come or should I go I can’t decide
Man I hate my current life’s fucking design

Hook:
By my inner me
My other identity

Chorus:
I’m just poppin pills the doctor gave
Wonderin where on earth she studied
Wondering where the hell she got her degree
Feelin pushed the fuck out of my own brain
Thinking nothing can ever fix me
Why can’t a pill fix my reality
Man I hope tonight I’m able to sleep
Better yet here’s to sweeter dreams

Bridge:
Hopefully there’ll come a day in my life
where I just feel better all the way without a try
But I gotta ride it out this time
When I really just wanna close my eyes
And forget about this invisible strife
Cutting me in the side
That feels metaphorically like a knife
And in a world of “I don’t know why”
But for now I just wanna sit around and cry
And basically just wait around till I die
And say my goodbyes

Chorus:
I’m just poppin pills the doctor gave
Wonderin where on earth she studied
Wondering where the hell she got her degree
Feelin pushed the fuck out of my own brain
Thinking nothing can ever fix me
Why can’t a pill fix my reality
Man I hope tonight I’m able to sleep
Better yet here’s to sweeter dreams
Track Name: Robbie Woke up Numb
Verse 1:
I’m feelin all sorts of numb inside
and I don’t know why
It seems that all the friends that I have could just get up
and leave and I wouldn’t even cry
Oh I used to be so passionate over everyone and everything
And now I don’t even think twice
And oddly enough I don’t think I’d care if I died

Chorus:
I’m so lost and numb
Am I being selfish
Will I ever wake up
And stop feeling like this

Verse 2:
I mean don’t get me wrong
I still care bout the people that I love
But is that good enough
Maybe I’m just jealous that there’s help for everyone
Yet no one can seem to pick me up
Or perhaps I’m bipolar and don’t take the right kind of drugs
Or maybe I’m being naïve and everyone else’s life sucks

Chorus:
I’m so lost and numb
Am I being selfish
Will I ever wake up
And stop feeling like this

Bridge:
I tried to help her but I failed so I brushed it off
I tried to love him once again but was lacking trust so I left him in the dumps
Am I a bad person
Am I forever numb
Can I reach you threw this song
My name is Robbie look me up
Let me know if there’s help for me or if I’m fucked

Chorus:
I’m so lost and numb
Am I being selfish
Will I ever wake up
And stop feeling like this
Track Name: Who Thought
Verse 1:
I’m climbing out out of my little box
No more pauses still cause I can’t stop
But everything else that you thought I was
Is changing shape no simply just because

Chorus:
Who thought oh who thought that they’d seen it all
Who thought they had to catch me who thought I would fall
Who thought that I’d sit here and go out of style
I think I’ma stick around for just a little while

Verse 2:
I know some things they will never change
Such as my voice or my abandonment pain
I was designed to bring people to the light
And when I fall I get up and fight

Chorus:
Who thought oh who thought that they’d seen it all
Who thought they had to catch me who thought I would fall
Who thought that I’d sit here and go out of style
I think I’ma stick around for just a little while

Bridge:
And if I lose my way I’ll find a new path to take
Yo trust that I can change my face
Best believe I know how to fake

Chorus:
Who thought oh who thought that they’d seen it all
Who thought they had to catch me who thought I would fall
Who thought that I’d sit here and go out of style
I think I’ma stick around for just a little while
Track Name: Yall So Hard
Verse 1:
So I heard you got yourself a new friend
Just a few short days after we ended
Well that’s alright it just hurts
That you couldn’t make shit work between us
But that’s okay I’ll be fine

Chorus 1:
Don’t know what the hell I expected when I know you’re just a man
I should have known I should have seen you’d leave me in the end
Cause all men always do it’s how yall are
Just like guys like me are fools to fall for yall so hard

Verse 2:
Don’t wait up I’ll be out till after midnight is what you said
I had no clue it’d be the last time I’d see you again
Man I’m such a fool now I’m upset
This isn’t cool now my head is a mess

Chorus 2:
And it’s because of you that I feel this way cause you’re just a guy
And yall always leave it’s how yall are it’s how yall are designed
Just like guys like me are fuckin fools to let guys like you bend the truth
And to fall for yall so hard

Bridge:
Will I ever find a guy like me
to stand by my side and to cherish me
A guy who doesn’t swear but shows me
that he has plans for us to get married
A guy who puts both feet into me
We’d buy a house out in the country
And maybe make ourselves a family
Then grow old together and lay dying

Chorus 2:
And it’s because of you that I feel this way cause you’re just a guy
And yall always leave it’s how yall are it’s how yall are designed
Just like guys like me are fuckin fools to let guys like you bend the truth
And to fall for yall so hard
And it’s because of you that I feel this way cause you’re just a guy
And yall always leave it’s how yall are it’s how yall are designed
