Little Things

Yeah, this song is dedicated
To every kid who ever
Got picked last in gym class
This is for you
To every kid who never
Had a date to no school dance
This is for you
To everyone who's ever
Been called a freak
This is for you

Here we go
What? What? Come on! What!?

Ohhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhh

Like the time in school
When we got free lunch
And the cool kids beat us up
And the rich kids had convertibles
And we had to ride the bus (55)

Like the time
We made the baseball team
But they still laughed at us
You still suck
Like the time that girl
Broke up with me
Cuz I wasn't cool enough
TRICK!

Thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiings
Thiiiiiings
Here we go

The little things, little things
They always hang around
Little things, little things
They try to break me down
Little things, little things

They just won't go away
Little things, little things
Make me who I am today

Go!
You wanna hate me now
But I won't stop now
Cuz I can't stop now

Like the time mom
Went to the institute
Cuz she was breakin' down
Like the car we had
That wouldn't start
We had to walk to get around
Hey can I getta ride?

And that same year on Christmas Eve
Dad went to the store
Uhh I'll see you guys later
We checked his room
His things were gone
We didn't see him no more
DICK!

Thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiings
Thiiiiiings
Here we go

The little things, little things
They always hang around
Little things, little things
They try to break me down
Little things, little things

They just won't go away
Little things, little things
Make me who I am today
Go!
You wanna hate me now
But I won't stop now
Cuz I can't stop now

What! What! What! What!

Little things, little things
Little things, little things
Ohhhhh

Little things, little things
Little things, little things
Ohhhhh

Little things, little things
Little things, little things
Ohhhhh

Little things, little things
Little things, little things

Ohhhhh
Ohhhhh
Ohhhhh
Ohhhhh

Here we go
And it always seems those
Little things
They take the biggest part of me

It always seem those
Little things
They take the biggest part of me

It always seem those
Little things
They take the biggest part of me

And I know that those
Little things
Make the biggest part of me
Break down

I'm breaking down
Break down
Gotta maintain

I'm breaking down
Break down
Gotta maintain


Waldorf Worldwide

Waldorf, Naptown worldwide
What?

Listen up cuz there ain't nothin' funny
I wanna hot girl and a little bit of money
I wanna little house where my band can live
Cuz we're tired of moving every other weekend

I wanna go to parties
Where they got no guns
I wanna rock with my band
I wanna have a little fun
Where thugs and punks and any other type
Can sing this song and sing it all night

Everything's gonna be alright now
Everything's gonna be alright
Get down stay up all night now
Let's do this one more time
Everything'll be alright
Everything will be alright, alright

All I wanna do is kick the welfare
All I wanna do is get my share
All I wanna do is kick the welfare
All I wanna do is get my share
And I don't wanna run for the president
I just want an honest way to pay my rent

And I'm tired of the man
Always shuttin' us down
Tired of my old man
Cuz he's never around
And I'm tired of eating
Off of other people's plates
And I don't look important
So they're tellin' me to wait

Police records said they wouldn't exist
I wanna know the meaning of a Christmas list
Said all I wanna do is kick the welfare
All I wanna do is get my share
All I wanna do is make something from nothing
It's GC baby and we're working with something

Everything's gonna be alright now
Everything's gonna be alright
Get down stay up all night now
Let's do this one more time
Everything'll be alright
Everything will be alright, alright

We'll be self-made millionaires
These lives we'll lead without a care
Oh yeah
And we'll see what we'll be

Everything's gonna be alright now
Everybody say it one more time
Everything will be alright, alright
We'll see you when we get there
We'll see you when we get there

On the video
Or the radio
In the magazines
On the movie screens



Motivation Proclamation

Spend your lazy, endless crazy
Days inside my head
You're so selfish
You're not the only
One who thinks he's dead
I'm paid to smile, now I'm on trial
For what you think I said

But I never said
That everything would be okay
And I never said
That we would live
To see another day

Motivate me
I wanna get myself out of this bed
Captivate me
I want good thoughts inside of my head

If I fall down would you come around
And pick me right up off the ground
If I fall down would you come around
And pick me right up off the ground

Un-realistic and narcissistic
You say I'm selfish and absurd
You try to change me
Try to save me
You say I'm gonna learn
I'm so blind
I'm out of time
You're so unkind sometimes

I never lied
I never lied
I never lied

But I never said
That everything would be okay
And I never said
That we would live
To see another day

Motivate me
I wanna get myself out of this bed
Captivate me
I want good thoughts inside of my head

If I fall down would you come around
And pick me right up off the ground
If I fall down would you come around
And pick me right up off the ground

Cuz everything, it'll be okay
You know we're gonna live
To see another day

Yeah, yeah
Motivate me
Yeah
Motivate me
Yeah



East Coast Anthem

Walking on the streets of D.C.
On the east coast where I live
You say what's the problem
What's with this angry kid?

You don’t like the way I walk
Or the way I talk
Or the way I swing my hands
You don't like the words I speak
Or the thoughts I think

And I know you'll never understand
You know, on the east coast
We ride until we die, you know

Well there's a place inside my mind
Yeah a place you'll never find
There's a place inside my mind
Walk this way

There's a place inside my mind
Yeah a place you'll never find
There's a place inside my mind
We'll leave today

Wouldn't it be perfect
If I could sit with you
And we would change a thing or two

We could change a thing or two
We would change the way you think
We would change the way I think
We can't change the way they think
So we're not changing anything

Well there's a place inside my mind
Yeah a place you'll never find
There's a place inside my mind
Walk this way

There's a place inside my mind
Yeah a place you'll never find
There's a place inside my mind
We'll leave today

Wouldn't it be perfect
If I could sit with you
And we would change a thing or two

We could change a thing or two
We would change the way you think
We would change the way I think
We can't change the way they think
So we're not changing anything

On the east coast we ride
Until the day we die



Festival Song

I don't care about a thing today
I used to bet I'm fed up
And I can hear the words you say
I wish that you would shut up
I've got responsibility
That is my liability
A menace to society
At least that's what they say to me

But tonight, tonight it's on tonight
I don't want your boring life
And I don't want your 9 to 5
Or anyone to tell me how to live my life

People always tell me not to waste my time
To get a real job and get back in line
You can't say I'll never be a millionaire
Tell me this guitar won't get me anywhere
I've got responsibility, that is my liability
I'm questioning authority, they say there's not
A chance for me

But tonight, tonight it's on tonight
I don't want your boring life
And I don't want your 9 to 5
Or anyone to tell me how to live my life

Your future's no future
Your future's no future
Your future's no future
I control my future


Complicated

And we've been here for
So many years
Still it seems as if
You're not there
(Are you there?)
Every time I talk
You turn away
(Do you care?)
Isn't 'Dad'
An obligation to care?

And we've been here for
So many years, so many years
Still it seems
You're so complicated
You're over-rated
You're complicated
This feeling is low

Well I came in the door
Yeah I said it before
I never let the stress
Get me down no more
Giving thanks to the Lord
Y'know I pray every day
Giving shots to my peeps
And this is what we say

And we've been here for
So many years, so many years
Still it seems
You're so complicated
You're over-rated
You're complicated
This feeling is low

You left us one little room
With a black and white TV
One eviction notice
And a bill for therapy

You're living all alone
You're like a dog without a bone
I said you're living all alone
Cuz you left us all at home

Well you had a second chance
But you threw it all away
A fourth and fifth and sixth
Yeah that was yesterday

Now you're sitting at a bar
You're just a-drowning in your tears
Lonely in your corner
While everybody cheers

And we've been here for
So many years, so many years
Still it seems
You're so complicated
You're over-rated
You're complicated
This feeling is low


Seasons

Summer air reminds me of all the feelings of your love
And what it was like when we were together
Walking all along the beach, you were never far from my reach
And you held me through the stormy weather

And I want to fall in love tonight
And I remember when you said
"Everything is gonna be alright"

Laying in the summer grass
You told me not to talk so fast as I told you how I feel
You made me feel right at home
You told me I was not alone and you knew just how I feel

And I want to fall in love tonight
And I remember when you said
"Everything is gonna be alright"

I know we talked about it,
I just can't get around it,
I just want one more night with you,

And I want to fall in love tonight
And I remember when you said
"Everything is gonna be alright"

October air reminds me of all the feelings of your love
And what it was like, when we were together
The smell of fall is everywhere and though it seems
I just don't care, cuz now you're gone away

And I want to fall in love tonight
And I remember when you said
"Everything is gonna be alright"


I Don't Wanna Stop

All these games you play
They’re messin’ with my head
(Messin’ with my head)
I don’t know why I stay
I should leave instead
(I should leave instead)

When I speak from my heart, you laugh like it’s a game
(This ain’t no game)
Yeah we’d make great friends, but it just isn’t the same

And I know this is not the way it should be
And I know you treat him like me
But I don’t
I don’t wanna stop
I don’t wanna stop

Now I don’t need you to buy me pretty things
(You don’t pay for me)
Pay for my tattoos or buy me pretty things
(We don’t want those things)
All I know is that I’m happy to see you smile
(I want to see you smile)
And it’d make my day if you’d just stay for awhile
(Stay with me)

And I know this is not the way it should be
And I know you treat him like me
But I don’t
I don’t wanna stop
I don’t wanna stop

This has gone on way too long
And I’m tired of movin’ on

And I know this is not the way it should be
And I know you treat him like me
But I don’t
I don’t wanna stop
I don’t wanna stop


I Heard You

Today I screwed up again
You said I could tell in the way you said goodbye
I saw you sitting at your t-shirt stand
With your new boyfriend, he’s really cool
I get the point

I don’t want you, I don’t want you
I heard you, I heard you
I heard you say
Not a chance
What don’t you see
I don’t want you, I don’t want you
I heard you, I heard you
I heard you say
You’re not good enough for me

Today I screwed up again
I wasn’t paying attention
I walked into the wall again
I heard you laugh and saw you grin
While you were sitting at your t-shirt stand
With all your cool friends they’re really cool
I get the point

I don’t want you, I don’t want you
I heard you, I heard you
I heard you say
Not a chance
What don’t you see
I don’t want you, I don’t want you
I heard you, I heard you
I heard you say
You’re not good enough for me

Today I’ll give it one last try
And then I know I’ll wonder why
I did it to myself once again
I saw your boyfriend, he’s 6’3, quarterback on varsity
The football players love to torture me
So I’m feeling like I’m not fitting in
I know that I’m not fitting in with you
And your stuck-up friends
I get the point


Walk By

She walks down to the store at eight
The devil walks with her and he thinks she’s great
When she looks at me, I don’t know what I saw
I think he’s tryin’ to make me his son-in-law

When she
Walks by, walks by, walks by, she walks on by
Egos fly when she walks by

She caught my eye on October 9th
22 days before Halloween
How did I know she’d be my evil queen

When she
Walks by, walks by, walks by, she walks on by
Egos fly when she walks by

My mother warned me against girls like you
She said stay away from them son you know they’re not true
All they’re gonna do is put you under a spell she told me
When you’re fallin’ down you’re going straight to hell

When she
Walks by, walks by, walks by, she walks on by
Egos fly when she walks by

My mother warned me against girls like you
She said stay away from them son you know they’re not true
All they’re gonna do is put you under a spell she told me
When you’re fallin’ down you’re going straight to hell

When she
Walks by, walks by, walks by, she walks on by
Egos fly when she walks by



Let Me Go

Down in the streets outside of Washington, D.C.
I wasted all my time and you were there with me
Back then it meant so much to have you by my side
I always had your back and you always had mine
Sayin’ -

Let me go
Have some fun
Well my decision sucks yeah
But I’m so young

We’d hang out later and fight just trying to have fun
We were such punk ass kids but we knew everyone
And who could see through such blazedup bloodshot eyes
There was a plan for us one day we’d realize

Let me go
Have some fun
Well my decision sucks yeah
But I’m so young



Screamer

Communication is a lot like the wind when I speak
It’s like no one understands, and I’m left with empty hands
Forever I can’t speak
So many things I’ll never learn
You can’t cross bridges that you’ve burned
Why is life such an issue in your mind
Why are the answers to my problems hard to find
So hard to find

Don’t forget to buckle when you fall
Beneath the pressure of the seconds when
Your life became a screamer
Staring at the sea things become so small
I want movies of my dreams, and pictures on my wall
Pictures on my wall

You say that I’m a dreamer
I say you’re a non-believer
Take out the light, take out the light start screamin’
I’m dreaming
I’m a dreamer, no one believes me
And you don’t either
So tell me what to
Take out the light
Take out the light
Take out the light
Take out the light, start screamin’



Change

I am lost in the see-through
I think you lost yourself too
Throughout all of this confusion
I hope I somehow get to you
I practiced all the things I’d say
To tell you how I feel
And when I finally get my chance
It all seems so surreal
Cuz from the first time I saw you
I only thought about you
I didn’t know you
I wanted to hold onto
The things you’d never say to me
Cuz you said -

You can’t change the way you feel
I could never do that
I could never do that
But you can’t tell me this ain’t real, cuz this is real
And you would see right through that
In the end it’s all I’ve got
So I’m gonna hold onto that
So I’m gonna hold on and on and on and on

Now you’ve got me watching your eyes
Got me waiting just to see
If it goes the way it never will
Your eyes are watching me
And now you’ve got me thinking ‘bout
The first time that I met you
Standing in a crowded room
But I could only see you
And now I hope my words will get through
Cuz now I can’t forget you
I want to tell you
If I could only reach you
And make you feel this way
But you said -

You can’t change the way you feel
I could never do that
I could never do that
But you can’t tell me this ain’t real, cuz this is real
And you would see right through that
In the end it’s all I’ve got
So I’m gonna hold onto that
So I’m gonna hold on and on and on and on
