Track Name: Barely Breathing
Barely Breathing

Verse:

You always walk away when things are getting heavy
You always walk away when things are too rough
I'm always left behind just carrying your baggage
You're just a little boy who never grew up

But, Oh, where you going now?


Chorus:

You put it on me, You put it on me
When it all goes wrong, You put it on me

You put it on me, You put it on me
When it all goes down, You put it on me

When I needed a friend, you put it on me
When I needed someone...
When I asked you for help, you put it on me
Now I am done, and you can't put it on me


Verse 2:

You always smile at me when you're up to something
But I can see the truth behind your lyin' eyes
You always come at me with your cheap excuses
All of those things I've heard about a million times

But, Oh, not this time.



Chorus:

You put it on me, You put it on me
When it all goes wrong, You put it on me

You put it on me, You put it on me
When it all goes down, You put it on me

When I needed a friend, you put it on me
When I needed someone...
When I asked you for help, you put it on me
Now I am done, and you can't put it on me

Bridge:

Barely breathing, suffocating in a frozen wasteland
Barely breathing, hardly seeing who you were
Can't take a breath

Barely breathing, suffocating in a frozen wasteland
Barely breathing, hardly seeing who you were
Can't take a breath
Track Name: That Girl is Gone
That Girl is Gone

Verse #1

Frustration, aggravation
with the situation that you've fallen into
You say you love her, always thinking of her.
Wait 'till you find out what she's gonna do
You say she's perfect,
you say she's worth it,
but she ain't happy playing house with you.
The look in your eyes when you realize
she's not gonna make your dreams come true

Chorus

That girl is going, going, going.
That girl is going (there she goes),
going (there she goes), going (there she goes).
She's gone.
Everyone but you can see,
There's some place she'd rather be.
She's gone,
and I'm stuck here breaking the news
but there's nothing left that you can do.
She's going, going, going, going,
that girl is gone.

Verse #2

Frustration, aggravation,
this how this is going down.
You always put yourself out there,
she's always letting you down.
And you're a braver heart than I will ever be.
But, baby, let's face reality.

Chorus

That girl is going, going, going.
That girl is going (there she goes),
going (there she goes), going (there she goes).
She's gone.
Everyone but you can see,
There's some place she'd rather be.
She's gone,
and I'm stuck here breaking the news
but there's nothing left that you can do.
She's going, going, going, going,
that girl is gone.
Track Name: One Red Minute
One Red Minute

Verse #1

He was a city boy, slipped out of Cleveland
one step ahead of the law.
Finally made his way out to LA,
was gonna be a rock star.
And he played:

She was a Cali girl, hotter than the Mojave sands,
with kisses that tasted like stars.
He was a jealous boy, she loved attention
'till one night it went too far.

Chorus

And in one red minute, his world came crashing down.
And in one red minute, crashing down, crashing down
And in one red minute, his world came crashing down.
And in one red minute, crashing down, crashing down

Verse #2

Now he lives in hell, in a 10 foot cell.
Alone with his memories all day.
No life behind him, with nothing left ahead.
Just remembering the times when he played,
And he played:

He always sees it, that one red minute,
every time he closes his eyes.
Her look of passion, turned into fear,
she saw the weapon in his hands

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: The Incident
Verse #1

We've been talking for hours
We killed a couple bottles of wine
The party's finally dying
and we've had such a wonderful time

I should've seen this coming
You've been nervous all night
sending out your signals
I should've known what was on your mind

Pre-chorus

Oh no! Now you're scooting closer
Oh no! Now you're making your move
And I say...

Chorus

Please don't try to kiss me (please don't try to kiss me)
Please don't try to kiss me (please don't try to kiss me)
Cause, if you try to kiss me
You're really gonna freak me out

Verse #2

We've been friends forever
I dated your brother junior year
My mom was your third grade teacher
you and I would be too weird

Pre-chorus

Oh no! Now you're moving in closer
Oh no! I'm gonna have to shut you down
And I say...

Chorus

Please don't try to kiss me (please don't try to kiss me)
Please don't try to kiss me (please don't try to kiss me)
Cause, if you try to kiss me
You're really gonna freak me out


Spoken word

Hey dude, you're a really cool guy
you're funny, you're cute
and I'm sure you're a good boyfriend
but we have a lot of history together
and I've never really thought of you “that way”
I mean, it's just like
you're just like
a brother to me...

Chorus

Please don't try to kiss me (please don't try to kiss me)
Please don't try to kiss me (please don't try to kiss me)
Cause, if you try to kiss me
You're really gonna freak me out
Track Name: On a String
Verse:

She had gold and diamonds,
She had everything.
Her life was shining, shining
Oh yeah, but she didn't have love, no love

He had money and power,
World upon a string
He was sittin' on millions, millions
Oh yeah, but he didn't have love, no love

Chorus:

Hold on baby, what we have is strong
I won't lose it, I won't lose it
Cause this love's better than ever before
I won't lose it, I won't lose it
If the choice is money or love
I will chose it, I will chose it
I chose love, I chose love

Verse:

She was always in motion,
She was movin' up.
New York and then Chicago,
Oh yeah, but she didn't have love, no love

He was sitting in his
ivory tower
always looking down
but he didn't have love, no love

Chorus:

Hold on baby, what we have is strong
I won't lose it, I won't lose it
Cause this love's better than ever before
I won't lose it, I won't lose it
If the choice is money or love
I will chose it, I will chose it
I chose love, I chose love

Instrumental break

Chorus:

Hold on baby, what we have is strong
I won't lose it, I won't lose it
Cause this love's better than ever before
I won't lose it, I won't lose it
If the choice is money or love
I will chose it, I will chose it
I chose love, I chose love
Track Name: Ms. Crandle
Verse #1

You're dressed so sexy Ms. Crandle
You're wearing the oldest disguise
What are you looking for Ms. Crandle?
Something has caught your eye.

You think you're staring at salvation
with broad shoulders and electric eyes,
but you've misplaced your affection.
You need to turn it inside.

Chorus

Excuse me Ms. Crandle
but you're not equipped to handle
this grown up life that you think you want.
You're schoolgirl dreams are nice,
but they come at a heavy price.
So, be careful, be careful.
I think you're headed the wrong way.

Verse #2

You're looking desperate Ms. Crandle.
Your moment is slipping away.
And I know, and I know, and I know
you think it's never gonna come again,
but Ms. Crandle, tomorrow's another day.

Chorus

Excuse me Ms. Crandle
but you're not equipped to handle
this grown up life that you think you want.
You're schoolgirl dreams are nice,
but they come at a heavy price.
So, be careful, be careful.
I think you're headed the wrong way.

Bridge

No more teachers,
no more books
that's what makes you worry.
The future's coming fast enough.
Ms. Crandle, what's your hurry?

Chorus

Excuse me Ms. Crandle
but you're not equipped to handle
this grown up life that you think you want.
You're schoolgirl dreams are nice,
but they come at a heavy price.
So, be careful, be careful.
I think you're headed the wrong way.
Track Name: Newest Nation
Verse #1

You promised us you were thinking of our future.
And you promised us you were acting in our interest.
But your promises were false and hollow.
And now we've learned our lesson,
we don't trust you anymore.
'Cause we are the members,

Chorus

We are the members of the, the newest nation,
and we are tired of you standing in our way.
You are the source of all our anger and frustration,
so believe us when we say,
That we the members,
we the members of the, the newest nation,
we know this to be true,
that we will leave our mark upon this nation,
and we'll damn sure do a better job than you.
'Cause we are the members.

Verse #2

You lied to us when you told us life was easy
And you lied to us and said we'd never lose.
Well, aren't you tired of lying? (Aren't you tired of lying?)
Aren't you tired of lying? (Aren't you tired of lying?)
And don't you understand
that we're not listening anymore?
'Cause we are the members.

Chorus

We are the members of the, the newest nation,
and we are tired of you standing in our way.
You are the source of all our anger and frustration,
so believe us when we say,
That we the members,
we the members of the, the newest nation,
we know this to be true,
that we will leave our mark upon this nation,
and we'll damn sure do a better job than you.
'Cause we are the members.
Track Name: Class V
Verse 1:

You're like a bull in a china shop. You're like a class V hurricane.

You're a walking natural disaster. I get the feeling that you're never gonna change.

Well, I'm done with the reconstruction, the charity and the camera crews.

This feels like the same old story. This feels like the same old news.


Chorus:

Stop. Don't go there. Wait, don't go that way.

I, I'm always picking up the pieces, cleaning up the mess you made.

Oh, the mess you made.


Verse 2:

Well, you never see the devastation, the broken things that you leave behind.

I've seen the looks on your victim's faces, eyes glazed over like they wanna die.

I could use some springtime sunshine, I could use some skies of blue.

Next time that you're storming and raging, better think about what you're gonna lose.

Chorus:

Stop. Don't go there. Wait, don't go that way.

I, I'm always picking up the pieces, cleaning up the mess you made.

Oh, the mess you made.



Bridge:

The storm awaits. The storm awaits.

I see raindrops. I hear thunder, falling from the clearer sky.

I see raindrops. I hear thunder, falling from the clearer sky.



Chorus:

Stop. Don't go there. Wait, don't go that way.

I, I'm always picking up the pieces, cleaning up the mess you made.

Oh, the mess you made.
