A Day to Remember

Forgive and forget

I feel like a runaway, seeing the light of day
For the first time, I'm drawing the line
 
It's hard to care when you know it all
In slow motion, I watch you fall
Like you're blind, thoughts poison the mind
I always bend, when it comes to you
I think you'll change, but you never do
You never do, I enable you
 
Let me down, let me down like only you know how
Shut me out, shut me out, forgive and forget
Forgive and forget
Let me down, let me down, like only you know how
Shut me out, shut me out, forgive and forget
Forgive and forget
 
I wish that I could say this to your face
Something different, something brave
Wish I would, but I never could
I feel you slowly pulling me in
I try to help, but it's sink or swim
And you're a weight - there's comfort in pain
 
Let me down, let me down like only you know how
Shut me out, shut me out, forgive and forget
Forgive and forget
Let me down, let me down, like only you know how
Shut me out, shut me out, forgive and forget
Forgive and forget
 
You've drained all the love I had
All I had for you
Yeah you've drained all the love I had
All I had for you
All I had for you
 
Let me down, let me down like only you know how
Shut me out, shut me out, forgive and forget
Forgive and forget
Let me down, let me down, like only you know how
Shut me out, shut me out, forgive and forget
Forgive and forget
 

Monument

It's Monday morning
And I would kill for a chance to drive
Get so far away from here with you my dear
That I'll never leave your side
Nobody knows the troubles I've seen
In a van, on a soapbox for the world to see

Miles away, and I wish this didn't mean so much to me
To be a monument for the rest of them
Miles away, and I wish this didn't mean so much to me
To be a monument for the rest of them

We're getting older
I've started to fear for my life
Is this the way that it should be?
This whole thing's riding on me
It's been a long road so far
With nowhere to turn
There's no looking back from here
No more dwelling on my fears

Miles away, and I wish this didn't mean so much to me
To be a monument for the rest of them
Miles away, and I wish this didn't mean so much to me
To be a monument for the rest of them

Twenty bucks says you'll remember me
When you see me on your TV screen
It may be the first time
But it won't be the last time

And I'll scream
So loud that everyone in this place
Will hear every word I say
'Cause this is my time, this is my time to shine
Let nothing stand in our way

Twenty bucks says you'll remember me
When you see me on your TV screen
It may be the first time
But it won't be the last time

The Plot to Bomb the Panhandle

I've learned to let go!
Come on!

Here's a middle finger
Coming straight from oca-l-a
I appreciate your judgement
It's proved that I can't trust a word you say
Those must be some pair of binoculars
That you see every move I make
So I'll never be a liar
But you'll always be two-faced

You'll get what's coming to you
You're blinded by your instincts
I'm not your fucking game
I'm not so easily beat

I'm looking down at this mess that you've made
And I can't believe that I stayed
So unhappy for so long
Where did I go wrong?
I've got to get out of this
My hand is on the handle
We're leaving everything behind
Goodbye for a lifetime

I'll rip that scandalous bitch in two
We'll bring the noise

Try to pretend that I never even knew your name
'Cause everything you are disgusts me
(Too bad I can't turn back time)
So I wouldn't be here
What I'd give for you to disappear
So tell me girly how's your edge?

You've got nothing better to do
I know why you can't see straight
I thought you were better than this
But you're just like everyone else

I'm looking down at this mess that you've made
And I can't believe that I stayed
So unhappy for so long
Where did I go wrong?
I've got to get out of this
My hand is on the handle
We're leaving everything behind
Goodbye for a lifetime

I'll make my stand
Right here with my friends
I'll make my stand
Right here with my friends
I'll make my stand
Right here with my friends
I'll make my stand
Right here with my friends
I'll make my stand
Right here with my friends

Get low!
Now I know who my friends are
I'm never coming home

My Life For Hire

Somebody give me a sign,
That everything's going as planned,
And then everything falls away,
Into the darkness of this shallow place.
The detail is striking,
The room's cold and frightening,
You'll kick and you'll scream,
You'll try everything to survive,
But you should know your fate by now.

They told me (they told me)
How I should be,
But I broke the mold somehow!

It's too late, too late.
You keep trying to resolve the past right now,
But I swear I'll be the one
To let the world know what you've done to me!

You, you know you gotta assert yourself,
Leave what you need for now,
It's not the time or place you're searching for.
All I can give them's my worst of intentions.
You're nothing to me and everyone can see that
Your life's a lie, there's nowhere left to hide.

They told me (they told me)
How I should be,
But I broke the mold somehow!

It's too late, too late.
You keep trying to resolve the past right now,
But I swear I'll be the one
To let the world know what you've done

It's too late, too late.
You keep trying to resolve the past right now,
But I swear I'll be the one
To let the world know what you've done to me!

Watch your back, you'll lose yourself!
This is a battleground!
When will they know,

Your life's a lie.

It's too late, too late.
You keep trying to resolve the past right now,
But I swear I'll be the one
To let the world know what you've done

It's too late, too late.
You keep trying to resolve the past right now,
But I swear I'll be the one
To let the world know what you've done

They told me (they told me)
How I should be,
But I broke the mold somehow!

NJ Legion Iced Tea

Get up, get out
This is your wake up call
We run this town and you can't fight us all
We keep 'em coming back for more
Don't think you can hold us down
We'll tear this building down
Try to be careful what you say

Give it up, your tact is astounding
Find your place and leave us with some peace of mind
You do this every time

So here's to another better year
We've crossed that thin line
Don't try to hold us here
If for just this once you'd think of us
I hope you're happy with yourself

Get up, get out
Who's gonna break your fall
When we don't back down, you're gonna seem so small
We keep 'em running for the door
Just wait, things will come back around
It's too late for them, they're headed straight for a melt down
I'm not a part of your cliche

Give it up, your tact is astounding
Find your place and leave us with some peace of mind
You do this every time

So here's to another better year
We've crossed that thin line
Don't try to hold us here
If for just this once you'd think of us
I hope you're happy with yourself

So here's to another better year
We've crossed that thin line
Don't try to hold us here
If for just this once you'd think of us
I hope you're happy with yourself

Just think about, just think about everything
Be careful now, be careful what you say
While I'm away.

This is the life we chose
This is the life I lead
They can never take this from me

This is the life we chose
This is the life I lead
They can never take this from me

So here's to another better year
We've crossed that thin line
Don't try to hold us here
If for just this once you'd think of us
I hope you're happy with yourself
So here's to another better year
We've crossed that thin line
Don't try to hold us here
If for just this once you'd think of us
I hope you're happy with yourself
So here's to another better year
I hope you're happy with yourself
