Track Name: 3148
Tread marks and tire tracks,
Shattered hearts and broken glass
On a county road that leads to nowhere
Like the seasons come and pass
You were taken way too fast
The smell of sadness fills the winter air

I’m counting every breath I see in the cold
Replaying every story you ever told
I wish I could hear them one more time
I’m trying so hard to be fine
But I wish it didn’t have to be this way

Tattoos, booze and cigarettes,
I’ll take whatever I can get
To try to cope with all this fucking pain.
It seems I never will forget
The place you took your final breath
Stuck in my head, playing over and over again.

I talked with you til the sun went down
I could feel your spirit all around.
On the sign I wrote “I Love You, Skye.
Rest In Punk Rawk Paradise”
It was February 28th,
We lost you on 3148.
That county road will never be the same..
Track Name: Drunk
I was 23 and
You were 17
I met you at a party
But it wasn't my scene
I tried to get to know you,
But you were really mean
In the middle of a sentence
You stood up and tried to leave.

A couple nights later,
I got another chance.
I went to pick you up
In a friend of mine's van.
I didn't say a word
Til it started getting late,
Then I asked if I could kiss you
And you punched me in the face.

I asked you if you wanna date me,
Cause I don't want to be just friends.
You said "I'd really love to Baby,
We'll be together until the end"

We moved away and then
You start getting strange.
You were always really angry
And you always called me names.
You started getting violent
And you cheated on me,
That's when I decided
It was time for you to leave.

I asked "Do you still wanna date me?
Cause I wanna be just friends"
You said "I really love you, Baby,
We'll be together until the end."
But I just wasn't gonna have it,
This isn't what I thought Love was.
I thought that I was really happy,
But I guess I was just drunk.

So go on and tell your lies,
And pretend to black your eyes
While I write another song
About all that you've done wrong.
There's a million other guys
Who will listen to your cries,
But one day you'll see
They could never be as good as me.

You threw my guitar out the window,
And watched it crash into pieces.
Right now I wish you were a dude, bro,
Cause you'd be right there behind it!

I thought that I was really happy,
But I guess I was just drunk.
Track Name: Goodbye (Why?)
I wish I could write a song
About you, Dear
Without having to write
About death.
Cause I'm desperately searching
For new here,
My life's just not
The same since you left.

Why
Do the people we love have to die
Before it's their time?
Tell me, why
Do we have to tell them goodbye?

I remember the day
That they told me
You were gone.
I just laid there and cried.
I tried so fucking hard
To keep moving,
But these thoughts
They just killed me inside

Oh why
Do the people we love have to die
Before it's their time?
Tell me, why
Do we have to tell them goodbye?
Cause I just can't see,
This isn't how it's supposed to be.
Why did you have to leave me?
I don't wanna tell you..

I know that they told me
To try to stay strong.
But how can I do that,
When you are still gone?
Some day I know that
I'll see you again,
Until then you'll still be/
On my heart, my dear friend..

So Why
Do the people we love have to die
Before it's their time?
Tell me, why
Do we have to say goodbye?

Oh why
Do the people we love have to die
Before it's their time?
Tell me, why
Do we have to tell them goodbye?
Cause I just can't see,
This isn't how it's supposed to be.
Why did you have to leave me?
I don't wanna tell you

Goodbye..
Track Name: Everything Is Bigger When You're Scared
*Instrumental*
Track Name: UBUNTU
We all go through some things
That may seem like the end,
But just keep your head up high,
The sun will be your friend.
I know that it gets hard
When things are going wrong,
But life will work itself out,
So Just keep moving on.

When life falls apart,
Or the world’s out to get you.
If you need a friend,
I’ll be there to catch you.
Sometimes it gets rough.
When you just want to go home,
I need you to know
You don’t have to do this alone.

I know sometimes you seem
To always come up short,
But look ahead, you never know
The things life has in store.
You might live a hundred years,
Or Heaven could be close.
So don’t dwell on yesterday,
Just hug the people you love most
Track Name: Wolves (I Don't Like You)
I always swore I'd never
write songs about people
But it looks like you did
Something to deserve it.
I don't know what it is
But you just make me sick
I guess you’re just a
Terrible person

I don’t like you, cause all you do is steal and lie
Everybody hates you, and you need to get a life.
You’re just a wolf in the clothing of a nice guy
I wish we never met, so now I’m gonna say goodbye.

I never want to see
Your fuckin face again.
But if I do I’m
Probably gonna punch you.
I thought that we were friends
But Clearly I was wrong.
Your life’s a joke
Here’s me
Saying ‘Fuck You!’

I don’t like you, cause all you do is steal and lie
Everybody hates you, and you need to get a life.
You’re just a wolf in the clothing of a nice guy
I wish we never met, so now I’m gonna say goodbye.
I can’t stand you, cause all you fuckin do is lie.
Nobody likes you and it’s time for you to get a life.
You’re a thief, stop pretending you’re a nice guy.
I wish we never met, so now I’ll fuckin say goodbye.
Track Name: Irony At It's Finest (The Songwriter's Curse)
I’m sitting here,
I’m staring at the paper.
Drawing a blank,
I’ll come back to it later.
I guess it’s not as easy as it used to be.

Listen to the same track
Over and Over,
I’ve been trying to write it
Since last October
Looks like it’s not ever gonna be released.

I can't go on. I can't write this song.
What's the next line? I'm running out of time..
What should I say? What chord should I play?
I wish it wasn’t hard to write this record from the start..

One verse down,
The next part doesn’t matter.
I’m takin a break,
Now I’m just getting fatter.
Turns out, I’m not writing anything today.

Time's up now,
The deadline is coming.
Take a look outside,
My mind starts running.
That’s fine, nobody’s listening anyway.
Just throw it away
Track Name: Strangers Have The Best Candy
How could you tell me
All you wanted to be was friends
When every day I woke up
To you in my bed?
It doesnt make much sense
I just don't understand
And all I want is
To fuckin hold you once again..

Don’t tell me that you love me
If you’re gonna just walk out.
I thought that you were perfect,
And I didn’t have a doubt.
Then one night you told me
This just isn’t what you need.
I knew that you were
Way out of my league

How could you say that
I don’t mean a thing to you,
Just turn and walk away?
Why would you say that
This isn’t what you wanted to do?
It didn’t have to be this way..

Ever since the day we met
I worked so hard for that first kiss.
I never would have guessed
That it was gonna be like this.
I thought that we were great,
but nothing’s as it seems. [Ha]
I even thought that you
Were gonna marry me.

How could you say that
I don’t mean a thing to you
And just turn and walk away?

(Don’t tell me that you love me.
I thought that you were perfect,
I knew that you were way out of my league)
