Get There in Time
Verse 1:
Youíre so far behind me (how healthy)
that thoughts of us and all our Sunday morning memories
have all begun to escape me. Theyíve changed me
Yeah thatís right theyíve all starting to fade away

Chorus:
When I never thought that Iíd
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 hanginí 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 Iíd
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 Iíve 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 Iíve discovered only I contain all the power to change my fate
And Iíve found that the grief it doesnít last
And that itís never gonna be too late to start again

Chorus:
When I never thought that Iíd
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 Iíd
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 Iíd
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

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 theyíd start to shrink?
And get this tight on me
Iíve gotta stop daydreaming
When I know itís unnatural, we just cant be

Hook 1:
I get so confused when Iím with you

Chorus:
I shouldnít love you like I do, like I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, like I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, like I do
I shouldnít love you
I shouldnít love you like I do, but I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, but I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, but I do
I shouldnít 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
Itís like ecstasy and youíre my drug
Iíll lick everything that you touch
Silly mundane pleasantries
Can we skip to the part where youíre wrestling me?
And rip our shirts off like fiends
Or like weíre both 17
I gotta stop, this isnít healthy, you and I just cant be

Hook 2:
I get so aroused when Iím with you

Chorus:
I shouldnít love you like I do, like I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, like I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, like I do
I shouldnít love you
I shouldnít love you like I do, but I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, but I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, but I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, like I do
but I do

Bridge:
Lets get into a groove
Dude, who you think youíre trying to fool?
Hey, where you think youíre going so soon?
Baby Iím just getting started with you
Bro got me reaching for the tube
And it doesnít matter what he do
He always put me in a mood

Chorus:
I shouldnít love you like I do, like I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, like I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, like I do
I shouldnít love you
I shouldnít love you like I do, but I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, but I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, but I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, like I do
but I do

Chorus:
I shouldnít love you like I do, like I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, like I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, like I do
I shouldnít love you
I shouldnít love you like I do, but I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, but I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, but I do
I shouldnít love you like I do, like I do
but I do

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 Iím lost
My heartís turning to frost
Oh oh oh

Hook:
Iím feeling ugly up in here, up in me
Itís 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:
Iím feeling ugly up in here, up in me
Itís 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

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:
Iím not asking, Iím begging for a happy song
Iím not basking, Iím 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

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 Iíma 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 Iíd die
And Iím just so glad that we met
Iím never sad now that youíve 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, heís so so wild
Yo we always have fun, and we can go for miles
Now thatís real love and itís always in style

Chorus:
I fell in love at a time
in my fucked little life
Where I thought that Iíd die
And Iím just so glad that we met
Iím never sad now that youíve 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 Iíd die
And Iím just so glad that we met
Iím never sad now that youíve 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 Iíd die
And Iím just so glad that we met
Iím never sad now that youíve 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 Iíd die
And Iím just so glad that we met

Tommy Had to Go
Verse 1:
One day Tommy was here
Then the next day he simply wasnít
He came and went as quick as he came
But while he was here he would always entertain us

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

Link:
Each night weíd all thank him and award him some merits
ĎCause he was so fucking hot
And he spoke so highly of his grandparents
Heís just the type of guy youíd love to introduce to mom

Chorus:
But now heís gone and
thereís 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 donít know
why Tommy had to go
He didnít really Ďhave toí though
Not sure why Tommy chose to go
Tommy had to go

Verse 2:
Not sure if heíll ever be heard from again
but I sure hope so
Cause with those curves layiní on that bed
Iíd be in the woods looking for his ghost

Hook 2:
Heíd get jumpy and lost and sometimes stalked
And heíd lose his keys and get chased by dogs
Walking through the trees, almost always soft
He was, such a hottie canít believe heís gone

Link:
Each night weíd all thank him and award him some merits
ĎCause he was so fucking hot
And he spoke so highly of his grandparents
Heís just the type of guy youíd love to introduce to mom

Chorus:
But now heís gone and
thereís 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 donít know
why Tommy had to go
He didnít really Ďhave toí though
Not sure why Tommy chose to go
Thatís right Tommy had to go

Not Ever
Verse 1:
Hey You, I stopped putting so much love into us
ĎCause evidence showed that you didnít like my love
And I realized what was really going on thus,
I stopped giving you what I figured you just didnít want

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

Chorus:
I loved your ass so much
But you didnít 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
Howíd it feel to receive my fake faÁade
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 didnít 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 Iíd feel just a tad more loved than I was
What about me?
If Iíd only had the knowledge then that I have now
What about me?
Iíd 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 Iíd feel just a tad more loved than I was
What about me?
If Iíd only had the knowledge then that I have now
What about me?
Iíd have had the will to pack my stuff up and move out
What about me?

Chorus:
I loved your ass so much
But you didnít 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 didnít 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

For Michael
Verse 1:
Thereís always love. Thereís always hope.
Thereís always a reason never to let go.
So then how come you didnít know?
Weíre all gonna miss you, and in our hearts, forever, weíll hold.,.

Chorus 1:
That smiling wise guy.
A guy everybody liked.
At 3-sheets, always a sight.
And a dad who did it right.
I cannot believe he lost his fight!
An Ďalways up lateí Mike.
But who loved the sunshine.
Loved admiring the sky.
And loved his kids and wife.
I cannot believe he ended his life!

Verse 2:
The cards always felt stacked, due to the system we have.
But the love is something that you never lacked.
You felt like a burden, though you were not.
But you couldnít take it, so ya took a train off to the great beyond.

Chorus 2:
You were that smiling wise guy.
A guy everybody liked.
At 3-sheets, always a sight.
And a dad who did it right.
I cannot believe he lost his fight!
An Ďalways upbeatí Mike.
One who loved the sunshine.
Loved admiring the sky.
And loved his kids and wife.
I cannot believe he ended his life!

Bridge:
You couldnít help but feel like you were so burdensome.
I guess you felt that itíd be safer to just pick up and run.
If you were still here I wonder would you have eventually overcome
Your demons so you could stick around to actually finish raising your son.

Chorus 3:
He was that smiling wise guy.
The same guy everyone liked.
Hosted hilarious late nights.
A dad who raised his kids right.
I cannot believe he lost the fight!
An Ďalways up lateí Mike.
But who loved the sunshine.
Loved admiring the sky.
And loved his kids and wife.
I cannot believe he ended his life!

Chorus 3:
He was that smiling wise guy.
The same guy everyone liked.
Hosted hilarious late nights.
A dad who raised his kids right.
I cannot believe he lost the fight!
An Ďalways up lateí Mike.
But who loved the sunshine.
Loved admiring the sky.
And loved his kids and wife.
I cannot believe he ended his life!

I'm No Good at Helping ("When's the Grass Get Greener" Alternative"
Verse:
I shredded the pages of my journal
Ďcause it isnít a time that I
want to remember in my life oh no
I created a fantasy and then lived in it
Well it isn't stick'n' in my head
And every now and then I canít get with it

Chorus:
I can lose grip quickly at the rate Iím going
I canít seem to think for myself Iíve got people built in
I walk all over eggshells so that I spare feelings
But Iím no good at helping (Iím no good at helping)
I just cannot help you and I wish you were fixed
But I know that for you it probably wont ever happen
I try to help you but your pain is my prison
Iím no good at helping (Iím no good at helping)

Once We
Verse 1:
Time, it hasnít been my friend.
Itís been turbocharged since the day he left.
If I havenít made it far, very far yet,
itís because part of me died the day he went.

And how long can I keep measuring Brad as a we,
when I only ever see that guy when Iím asleep?
Itís been 8 whole years of just me,
and itís been 8 long years of sleep.

Hook 1:
And I try not to cry.
Though at night, I canít lie,
I donít like, but donít mind,
even I cry, despite
living life in the light.
Iím a sight for sore eyes.
But in spite of that fight,
brushed aside, Iím alright.

Chorus:
And how can a guy like me
continue measuring himself as once we.
And for how long can a guy like Bradley
continue measuring himself as a once we.

Verse 2:
Life hasnít gone as expected;
Sometimes terrifying, and sometimes just meh.
And if I havenít made it past the front door yet,
itís because part of me died back in 2010.

And how long can I keep measuring Brad as a we
when I only ever see that fuckin guy in my sleep.
Itís been 8 whole years (woe is me)
and itís been 8 long years in solitary.

Hook 2:
And I try not to cry.
Though at night, I canít lie,
I donít like, but donít mind,

Iím alright. Iíll be fine.

Chorus:
And how can a guy like me
continue measuring himself as once we.
And for how long can a guy like Bradley
continue measuring himself as a once we.

Bridge:
Damn, I wish I could go back,
Ďcause Iím starting to fade to black,
and thereís nothing left here for me to grab.
I canít even find a hand, or a rubber band,
to fling me out of this monster of a jam,
and itís starting to fuckin drag.
Iím starting to lose who I am.

Chorus:
And how can a guy like me
continue measuring himself as once we.
And for how long can a guy like Bradley
continue measuring himself as a once we.

Wanna be Down
Verse 1:
Youíve gotta be willing and wanting
to change yourself for me
Secure, and not threatened.
know not what to mention
Flawless and perfect,
want-less and needless,
fearless and greedless

Youíve gotta be a 100% sure
that Iím what youíre needing
And that youíre not wasting my time
You gotta be walking on eggshells
if you really have to
All of this for me

Chorus:
I wanna be down baby.

Verse 2:
Youíve gotta be ready for mood-swings;
able to calm me.
Just sit there while I sing,
no matter how frightening
Protect me when Iím weak,
and not mind my yelling
Just do all of this for me
Youíve gotta proudly stand by me,
not embarrassed by me
Go risen when I fall,
and answer when I call
Not bail on me when you
feel so small next to me
And donít be so bitchy.
I canít help Iím pretty

Chorus:
I wanna be down baby.
I want your love like before

Chester's Last Chord
Verse 1:
All of the money in the world
The best business partners a guy could ask for
One of the most gorgeous families known to man
A rock-star life with millions of adoring fans

Hook:
None of that was enough for you in the end

Chorus:
So even if you were still here
this song would have still fallen on deaf ears
And all my chords of grieving tears
Well, theyíd have still streamed down,
but only in front of my mirror

Verse 2:
You were like a superhero to me,
and to your fans, and your kids,
your friends, and all your family
Because throughout your songs
we felt a sense of familiarity
Itís so hard to look ahead, when leaving
you in the past is what that actually means

Hook 2:
To say Iím taking it hard would be an understatement

Chorus:
So even if you were still here
this song would have still fallen on deaf ears
And all my chords of grieving tears
Well, theyíd have still streamed down,
but only in front of my mirror

Bridge:
I canít imagine what this has done to your band-mates.
And man, after your fucked up childhood youíd think
a guy would try not to make such a damaging mistake.
Yo, what about your kids man, whoís gonna keep them safe?
And when I think about all the things that you had, and gave up,
itís discouraging man, because here in this life thatís exactly what
we all strive for.
Itís that same sort of love the world fights for.

Chorus:
So even if you were still here
this song would have still fallen on deaf ears
And all my chords of grieving tears
Well, theyíd have still streamed down,
but only in front of my mirror

Chorus:
So even if you were still here
this song would have still fallen on deaf ears
And all my chords of grieving tears
Well, theyíd have still streamed down,
but only in front of my mirror

End Chorus:
So even if you were still here
this song would have still fallen on deaf ears
And all my chords of grieving tears...

Once You Go You Can't Come Back
Verse 1:
I really wish that I could do more than
just take a look back into my past
I swear sometimes it feels almost tangible
Donít you wish that you could do more than
just have a look back into the past?
Like physically reach out and grab him by the hand?

Hook:
ĎCause youíre so alive, right there
But it doesnít change the fact that
youíre really not, yes, Iím aware Chorus 1:
You lied when you said youíd
never let go
ĎCause once you go you canít come back
from this you know
I guess that means that your purpose,
it was served in full
Just like I guess that I was meant to
spend the rest of my life alone

Verse 2:
I really wish that I could have helped you
But I didnít notice what you were going through
I still feel like this is just a really terrible dream
Please God just let me, wake up in the morning
Or give me one more chance to hear him singing
I swear Iíll be anything that you want me to be

Hook:
ĎCause youíre so alive, right there
But it doesnít change the fact that
youíre really not, yes, Iím aware

Chorus 2:
You lied when you said
youíd never let go
ĎCause once you go you canít
come back from this you know
I guess that means that your purpose
must have been served in full
Just like I guess that means that I was
meant to spend the rest of my life alone

Bridge:
Your job wasnít finished,
at least not from where Iím sitting
but maybe in your own sense of the word
I guess I can see
how you could have concluded
that it was some sort of destiny
or maybe you just didnít know all the ways
that you were helping

Chorus 2:
You lied when you said
youíd never let go
ĎCause once you go you canít
come back from this you know
I guess that means that your purpose
must have been served in full
Just like I guess that means that I was
meant to spend the rest of my life alone

Damn Good Lover (Vocals Only)
Verse 1:
You can say I didnít really love him
or that I canít know what love is
or that Iím unable to feel affection
but hold up. Let me just tell you this:

Hook 1:
I am able to do more than mimic
the pain he caused me when he left
and you wont deprive me of that

Chorus:
I was a real damn good lover (you wont deprive me of that)
So Iím afraid to tell ya
I was a real damn good lover
your diagnoses were all wrong
I was a real damn good lover
And they lacked any sort of rational thought
I was a real damn good lover
So go on and just get out of here you putts

Verse 2:
You can say that I made him all up
or make me seem stupid and dumb
but Iím sure not gonna let you define me
or force me to define the word love
I was able to cry my eyes out when he left me all depressed
but I wasnít able to find out what made him so damn attractive

Hook 2:
I am able to do more than mimic
the joy he brought me when we met
and you wont deprive me of that

Chorus:
I was a real damn good lover
So Iím afraid to tell ya
I was a real damn good lover
your diagnoses were all wrong
I was a real damn good lover
And they lacked any sort of rational thought
I was a real damn good lover
So go on and just get out of here you putts

Bridge:
And while I felt all these
Interesting things it seems
They all dwelled inwardly
I didnít show them outwardly
For the possibility
of perhaps what theyíd see
Which is a weakening me

Chorus:
I was a real damn good lover
So Iím afraid to tell ya
I was a real damn good lover
your diagnoses were all wrong
I was a real damn good lover
And they lacked any sort of rational thought
I was a real damn good lover
So go on and just get out of here you putts

End:
I was a real damn good lover
I was a real damn good lover
I was a real damn good lover
I was a real damn good lover

I dyed all my hair for you
I lost all this weight for you

And it really sucks that
that youíre gone now
It really bites when
I canít show you how
far Iíve come
how much Iíve grown
and we canít turn around
time travels not allowed
but you know what Iíve found
is memories are loud
and theyíll play on
for as long as theyíre owned

But you didnít care
You didnít care
No, you didnít care
But you didnít care
You didnít care
No, you didnít care

Chorus:
But you didnít care
You didnít care

Like Me This Way (Vocals Only)
Intro:
Here we go again
Here we go again

Verse 1:
Itís not the good from the place that I hate
It is the bad from the hell that you created for me
When the facts show that I made the mistake
Then Iíll take, then Iíll take,
then Iíll take all the blame
You can put it all on me, and I wonít hesitate

Chorus:
I spend all, all of my time doing your job
Which is okay, but not every day
Iíve been played, everything
I tried to change, but you like me this way

Verse 2:
Itís not the night-frights
that I get where it seems like
like youíre on my back, like all the time,
yeah like every night
Itís not the ideal life
if itís every time I open up my eyes
With flashbacks running through my mind,
itís like my imaginationís working overtime
Youíve crippled me itís true but Iím disguised
Yeah thatís right, keep smiling, and roll your eyes
Itís okay because I hold my anger inside
I hold all my anger inside

Chorus:
I spend all, all of my time doing your job
Which is okay, but not every day
Iíve been played, everything
I tried to change, but you like me this way

Which is okay, but not every day
Iíve been played, everything

Well you know that youíve got me crippled and bent
Yeah, we both know that you enjoy watching me try to bend
On a whim, and at your will,
just so that you can try and circumvent
the fact that I too, I really am just like you;
someone trying to live

Chorus:
I spend all, all of my time doing your job
Which is okay, but not every day
Iíve been played, everything
I tried to change, but you like me this way

Chorus:
I spend all, all of my time doing your job
Which is okay, but not every day
Iíve been played, everything
I tried to change, but you like me this way

Chorus:
I spend all, all of my time doing your job
Which is okay, but not every day
Iíve been played, everything
I tried to change, but you like me this way

Chorus:
I spend all, all of my time doing your job
Which is okay, but not every day
Iíve been played, everything
I tried to change, but you like me this way

The Backwards (Vocals Only)
Verse 1:
You canít call people these types of names
No one wants to continue to play this game
Find a KKK member, put on a play
But not one classy person laughs at a personís race
And thereís not a thing that you could ever say
that would ever change my mind on this sort of thing
Come on Hitler, this ainít 1938
And you ainít Adolf Hitler and we ainít KKK

Hook:
So go on with your hatred, and be your own invalida...
tion, Ďcause the people stand against you, and they
gonna put you right in your place

Chorus:
Got no time for the backwards
So you can take all your bad words
Yo shove Ďem up Ďtil your ass hurts
Ho your opinion doesnít matter
Bro got no time for the backwards
So you can take all your bad words
Yo shove Ďem up Ďtil your ass hurts
Ho your opinion doesnít matter
Bro got no time for the backwards
So you can take all your bad words
Yo shove Ďem up Ďtil your ass hurts
Ho your opinion doesnít matter
Bro got no time for the backwards
So you can take all your bad words
Yo shove Ďem up Ďtil your ass hurts
Ho your opinion doesnít matter

Verse 2:
You canít fight marriage equality
No one even liked Kim Davis anyway
You should pack a bag and weíll get you on a plane
ĎCause no one in this country still accepts bigotry
not one classy person makes fun of being gay
And if they do they get fucked up thoroughly
Come on hater, this ainít 1968
The people busy loving, while youíre out spreading hate

Hook:
So go on with your hatred, and be your own invalida...
tion, Ďcause the people stand against you, and they
gonna put you right in your place

Chorus:
Got no time for the backwards

Bro got no time for the backwards
So you can take all your bad words
Yo shove Ďem up Ďtil your ass hurts
Ho your opinion doesnít matter

Bridge:
So if you find youíre backwards,
pop your daddy in the face
And tell him he donít matter,
the way he raised you was a disgrace
And that youíre the only one that he hurt,
by raising you that way
But you still have time to prove your worth,
but your pops is one of godís mistakes

Chorus:
Got no time for the backwards
So you can take all your bad words
Yo shove Ďem up Ďtil your ass hurts
Ho your opinion doesnít matter
Bro got no time for the backwards
So you can take all your bad words
Yo shove Ďem up Ďtil your ass hurts

Bro got no time for the backwards
So you can take all your bad words
Yo shove Ďem up Ďtil your ass hurts
Ho your opinion doesnít matter
Bro got no time for the backwards
So you can take all your bad words
Yo shove Ďem up Ďtil your ass hurts
Ho your opinion doesnít matter
