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

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 couldnít 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

Verse 1:
I fell in love with you that night
Held you close looked into your eyes
Told you everything would be alright

You were just a curse right in my life

And I still love you even more

I knew our love came with limits

to find attraction within
the best damn man that I could find

But also hurts me consequently

And then

Lets get married

It ainít anybodyís job to fix up my head
It ainít anybodyís job

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 youíd always hassle
I tell ya my shrinks got rich off my gigantic battles
I wish Iíd 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
Itís something I never got Ďtil after I grew up

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

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

Hook 2:
Youíve got to feel like you are in a place where you are loved
Youíve got to know that youíre perfect just the way you are

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

Ease My Pain
Verse 1:
I can go for months without giving into you or your demented shit
Even though I shouldnít have to
I can shrug it off for hours at a time but not without consequences
Iím beginning to crack and bruise

Hook:
Iíve spoke these words a million times
In a thousand different ways
Shocking it doesnít ease my pain

Chorus:
You do not exist
Youíre 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 itís just not fair
And it seems that they attack me when Iím already at my weakest
And you donít care

Hook:
Iíve spoke these words a million times
In a thousand different ways
Shocking it doesnít ease my pain

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

Bridge:
So many many times Iíve hid my face in my palms and cried
So many many times Iíd contemplate my demise, terrified
So many many times Iíve hid my face in my palms and cried
So many many times Iíd contemplate my demise, terrified

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

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

Dear Brother

Dear Brother
Youíve been gone a really long time
And youíve missed so much
Even the start of my life

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

Our father
had a thing for the ladies
and strayed from your mom
and had 2 more babies

Hi my name is Bradley
Wish I could have known ya
But I never did sadly

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

Voorhees (Theme-Song)
Oh-em-gee weíre octuplets
Under one roof, 8 of us

One day we found our birth momís obit
Then they showed up and asked to move in
And even though we didnít even know them
How could we say no, we were 8 twins
Though we all grownups, we all just met
And no, trust Iím not BSíiní
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 Ďdangerí
Sometimes I pull my hair out
But I still gotta find hot guys to date
And I gotta keep Ďem off my siblingís plates
But what can I say, 8 siblings live with me
