Track Name: A Song For My Ex-Girlfriends (ft. Tanner Padbury on Lead Guitar)
I tell you I love you
I tell you I care
I tell when your sad
Ill always be there

(Pre chorus)
Ill tell you whatever you please
Just as long it satisfies my needs
Ill tell you whatever I can
I wanna be your lover, not your man

(Chorus)
I'm a, jackass
The kinda guy that'll turn you around make ya go home and cry
I'm a, asshole
The one you hate makes contemplate why you just didn't masturbate
I'm a, douche bag
Say you're the one, until you realize that you're next to none
I'm a, bad guy
But your in love with a punch and a kick and a twist and a shove

(Verse)
You say that you're in love
And I'm the lucky guy
I say that you're so pretty
It makes me wanna cry

(Pre chorus)
Don't get me wrong you look good
You look just as good as the other girls
Your one of the prettier babes
But your a dime a dozen in a big wide world

(Chorus)
I'm a, jackass
The kinda guy that'll turn you around make ya go home and cry
I'm a, asshole
The one you hate makes contemplate why you just didn't masturbate
I'm a, douche bag
Say you're the one, until you realize that you're next to none
I'm a, bad guy
But your in love with a punch and a kick and a twist and a shove

(Bridge)
In 20 years ill call you up with apologies
You were right along baby, you are what I need
You'll think of all the time we shared
Those times seem so neat
The times that I was never there
Are the easiest to make believe
Those sleepless nights burnt out cigarettes are under out bed
The friends we had, the friends that died, and the friends that wish we were dead
The one night stands
The all night fights
Are surprised I bailed in the night
I heard you cried
Didn't she a tear
I moved on
You should too dear

(Chorus)
I'm a, jackass
The kinda guy that'll turn you around make ya go home and cry
I'm a, asshole
The one you hate makes contemplate why you just didn't masturbate
I'm a, douche bag
Say you're the one, until you realize that you're next to none
I'm a, bad guy
But your in love with a punch and a kick and a twist and a shove
Track Name: I Love Her (Only On My Own) (ft. Tanner Padbury on Lead Guitar)
(Verse)
If god were good days were bright

And if your love was black and white

Your problems would be all gone I swear

And your the only person I'd care for

If your love was mine, I'd never share

And I'd stay with you forever more

(Chorus)
Her life is full of happiness that I will never know

I love her, I love her, I love her

But only on my own

(Verse)
If I had the nerve to ask you out

You'd be my queen and I'd buy you everything but you'd be the queen of my rat faced town

Sweet to the bone but crazy on the skin

Being with her is like a bitter sweet sin

It feels so right but I know it wrong

(Chorus)
Her life is full of happiness that I will never know

I love her, I love her, I love her

But only on my own

(Bridge)
Seasons change and people die
But every night I find my self crying
I forget my own alibi
Find myself lying, feel like dying

(Chorus)
Her life is full of happiness that I will never know

I love her, I love her, I love her

But only on my own
Track Name: Supernova
(Verse)
I'm a star
That will self destruct

I'm a kid
In danger, of growing up

I'm un schooled yeah I'm not smart
But I've got a massive heart

I'm so smart and I'm in schooled
I'm a dummy I'm the fool

I've got skills and yeah they kill
But I would kill to have some skills

I'm a grown up life is over

(Chorus

I'm supernova
Going out with a bang

I'm supernova
Don't forget my name

You feel the heat and so will I
I give off waves of love and hate and lust
When I scatter across the sky
In the end everyone's dust
I'm not saying goodbye
I will never die
I'm was star who just went supernova

(Verse)
My brain is fried
I bite my time
I wish I had another brain I could try

It's this pot, acid, and LSD
Tricking me to get things
I don't actually need

Your not quite a bombshell
Your not quite petite
But your haunting and mesmerizing all my dreams

I'm a guide dog looking for a master true
Do as I see, forget what I do

I'm a blind man
Searching for you
Track Name: Christian Girl
(Verse)
Look at you, soul and skin
Christian girl, full of sin
Mr. Right is pretty proud
I'm Mr. Right here right now

Broken glasses, on your face
Callin him a huge disgrace
Shower me with you loving grace
Pace yourself when you embrace

Oh(x7)

Garden of Eden looks pretty fine
Cook the serpent in turpentine
One rib gone and I'm the liar
Your love is setting me on fire

Lucifer and Cheshire grin
Christian girl full of sin
Ill make you do things you never would
Praying wont do you any good

(Chorus)
I'm a bad guy, Look at me
I'm a bad guy, What you see
I'm a bad guy, What a tragedy
I'm bad guy, What you think baby

(Verse)
Fire and brimstone, evil kin
Christian girl, birthing sin
Nursing on demonic flames
Damien is his wicked name

Raise him right, raise him good
Just like a Christian mother should
New little girl, ready to start
Says he loves you, breaks her heart

(Chorus)
I'm a bad guy, Look at me
I'm a bad guy, What you see
I'm a bad guy, What a tragedy
I'm bad guy, What you think baby
Track Name: The Ballad Of The Lonely (ft. Tanner Padbury on Lead Guitar)
(Verse)
I'm a one time traveler
Going down the only road I've ever known
And yeah that sounds cliche
But nobody ever told me where to go

Every friend I had is gone
For the life of me I don't know where they went
So I waste my money finding new ones
Consider that money well spent

(Chorus)
Help me in trying
I am
I'm crying
does that make me less of a man
I'm dying
this was never the plan (X2)

(Verse)
I'm a lover, with an infinite jest
Although I sigh in vain
As lonely as a lover ill ever be
With an understandable pain

I need somebody to die with
Said the joker to the queen
She said I want someone as well
But not you if to know what I mean

(Chorus)
Help me in trying
I am
I'm crying
does that make me less of a man
I'm dying
this was never the plan (X2)

(Bridge)
You get drunk off all the whine in these songs
But I need some form of escape when the day gets to long

If you knew any better you'd refrain from listening
To the ballad of the lonely.
Track Name: A Song For My Son
(Verse)
Love is a cancer
Caring is a sham
I can never find the answer
What's feeling like a man?

It's getting harder to move
What's the point of trying
With everyone so sexy
I feel like dying

(Pre Chorus)
I want to go
Back to bed
I have to rest
My weary head

I need to get
Back to home
I'd kill to have
Some time alone

(Chorus)
Love at first sight
I hardly even knew her
Love at first sight
Find me a cure for
Love at first sight
Hit me on the head
Love at first sight
My poor heart is dead

(Verse)
Get up in the morning
Go back to sleep
I'm praying and hoping
I have pleasant dreams

Thoughts racing in my brain
Heart beat accelerating
Like getting hit by a train
Suicide always contemplating

(Pre Chorus)
Feelings provoked by a minimal touch
Don't you fucking tell me this is just young love
I'm drowning in heartbreak and headaches and such
I'm getting close to the edge just give me a shove

(Chorus)
Love at first sight
I hardly even knew her
Love at first sight
Find me a cure for
Love at first sight
Hit me on the head
Love at first sight
My poor heart is dead

(Break down/Bridge)
It's getting harder to breath
Its getting harder to live
It's getting harder to think
Something's got to give

(Chorus)
Love at first sight
I hardly even knew her
Love at first sight
Find me a cure for
Love at first sight
Hit me on the head
Love at first sight
My poor heart is dead
Track Name: Dan Sacks Is Alone
(Verse)
You hit like a hammer
and cut like a knife
You spend all your time
ruining my life

Every now and than I get use to you
Your just like the drugs that I use to do

You cut and you burn
While my insides start to churn

And I'm not sure why your freaking out

(Chorus)
You think your unique but we both know that your not
You think that your pretty but we both know your not hot
Your just a lousy piece of shit

YOU HAVE THAT KIND OF SMELL

And I'm not sure what your saying
Or the game your playing
But I know
One thing for certain

Your just like everyone else

(Verse)
They said that your special
Don't listen to them
He said your a snowflake
What the fuck is wrong with him

Put you and I together and I know we get two
I've never met someone quite as dumb as you

I put on the brakes
I know your a mistake

Why are you still freaking out?

(Chorus)
You think your unique but we both know that your not
You think that your pretty but we both know your not hot
Your just a lousy piece of shit

YOU HAVE THAT KIND OF SMELL

And I'm not sure what your saying
Or the game your playing
But I know
One thing for certain

Your just like everyone else

(Verse)
Why are you so scared
There's nothing to fear
You see germs on the walls and germs on your hands
Do you see the germs in the mirror

What a crying shame your in this never ending crying game
The girls know your lame and the guys think the same

You only get wrong numbers when they call you on the telephone
Your gonna die alone

(Chorus)
I think I'm unique but I know that I'm not
I think that I'm pretty but I know I'm not hot
I'm just a lousy piece of shit

I HAVE THAT KIND OF SMELL

And I'm not sure what I'm saying
Or the game that I'm playing
But I know one thing for certain

I wish I was anybody else
Track Name: What You Need
(Verse)
Please

Please leave me

Please leave me now

Please leave me now that I know that it's going to hurt.

So go

Go along your way

No more rainy days

Of that you can be sure

(Build)
So go, do what you need to do
To survive

Just please, leave me here to die

(Verse)
Want

Want to be with you forever more

I want to be closer than the sky and the clouds

And need

Is something I can't quite comprehend

But I know I need you right now

(Build)
So go, do what you need to do
To survive

Just please, leave me here to die

(Chorus)
Dead as a doorknob that's bent out of shape

Looking for something I can create

Choking, still choking on a hangman's noose

Use to the choking how about you?

(Verse)
Want

Want to be with you forever more

I want to be closer than the sky and the clouds

And need

Is something I can't quite comprehend

But I know I need you right now

(Build)
So go, do what you need to do
To survive

Just please, leave me here to die
Track Name: I Need You
(Verse)
Eyes
Eyes as deep as the sea
I see stars in your eyes
Staring back at me

(Build)
But when
You look around
You always catch my frown
Tell me
What do you see

(Chorus)
Oh baby
I need you
Much more than you need yes that's true

(Verse)
Lips
Lips as red as a rose
My eyes to ya eyes my lips to ya lips
Is how it should go

(Build)
But when
You look around
You always catch my frown
Tell me
What do you see

(Chorus)
Oh baby
I need you
Much more than you need yes that's true
Track Name: The One That Got Away
(Verse)
Clara was a couple years older than me.
But little difference I thought it made.

Love was the only affection I pined for.
Every single day

(Pre chorus)
We became friends
I thought it was more
I got shot down, and led astray
And now I remember Clara

As the one that got away

(Chorus)
Tears in the ocean
Stars in the sky
To many to count
When tears drown and stars die

Snow in the mountain
On a cold winter day
Ill always remember you
As the one that got away

(Verse)
Anne loved me and I loved her.
I thought for sure she was the one.

After years of heart break.
I was sure that my search was done.

(Pre Chorus)
I got up to bat
I took a swing
But she played for the other team
And Anne got lost in the cosmos

Like another broken dream

(Chorus)
Tears in the ocean
Stars in the sky
To many to count
When tears drown and stars die

Snow on the mountain
On a cold winter day
Ill always remember you
As the one that got away

(Verse)
Ashleigh moved here from California.
As quirky and quiet as you could be.

She had the voice of angels, getting drunk and making love.
Whatever she said I was forced to agree.

(Pre Chorus)
We confide in each other
Helped one another through pain
Listening to the Killers in the dark
But Ashleigh blasted off and I'm left

With another broken heart

(Chorus)
Tears in the ocean
Stars in the sky
To many to count
When tears drown and stars die

Snow in the mountain
On a cold winter day
Ill always remember Clara
Ill always remember Anne
Ill always remember Ashleigh

As the on that got away
Track Name: 1, 2, 3, 4 (ft. Tanner Padbury On Lead Guitar
(Verse)
If life and love will prickle
And Your heartbreak is fickle
Join the losers on parade

Come join our army
But don't be alarmed we
We're just marching for sunny days

(Break)

(Verse)
I stop just to go
I'm stuck in a bad show
Oh I feel so ashamed

I'm running out of time
I'm at the end of my line
Cause I'm the child who was left behind

(Chorus)
1234 one time once more

Can you hear our battle cry

We shout to cupped ears

Every day and every year

Mixed signals have recurring lies

(Verse)
It was the 1%
What a hateful establishment
How dare you live the American dream

Vote so goons don't win
Playing poker chips all in
Whose to say something is a sin

(Chorus)
1234 one time once more

Can you hear our battle cry

We shout to cupped ears

Every day and every year

Mixed signals have recurring lies

(Bridge)
Go join the army keep marching and murdering
Killing
Killing for your cause

Be a hero for starters
Evolve into a martyr
Your life wasn't worth it after all
