Track Name: Loved Me So
she says she loves me so
so i left and went back home
got home an on my knees
prayed she leave so i won't know love
better to haven't loved at all
cuz it ain't what it's cracked up to be
weeks and turn to misery
all cuz she says she loves me

no way no howno way you love me
honey baby we aint meant to be
no way no how no way you love me
can't you see we aint meant to be

she says i'm scared to love
well babe i'm scared to death
might be all in my head
but things she says are things i dread
this nightmare was once a dream
it was a better life when i was free
feels like i'm going crazy
all cuz she says she loves me

honey baby we aint meant to be
no way no how no way you love me
can't you see we aint meant to be
no way no how no way you love me

honey baby no way we can be
can't you see we aint meant to be
no way no how no way we can be
honey baby we aint meant to be
aint no love between you and me
no way no how no way we can be
honey baby we aint meant to be
can't you see we aint meant to be
no way no how no way we can be
aint no love between you and me
Track Name: Grown Boy Blues
never would have thought it could
come to this cuz i remember times
young and alive, young and naive
with much to do and to achieve
what a waste, this life of mine
memories of better times
soon it's over, soon i'm there
nearing closer to my despair

years pass times change
looking back, memories
little boy full of dreams
bright eyed, eager to try

soon the solution became the issue
thought it couldn't happen to me
more of a sucker than a fiend
scars real deep, too deep to heal
what will it take not to chase
not to chase that evil taste
i dug a hole six feet deep
it's my retreat to get some sleep

years pass times change
looking back, memories
little boy full of dreams
bright eyed, eager to try

little boy full of dreams
couldn't wait to achieve
but just had to wait and see
this little game wasn't for me
Track Name: Is She the One?
life's worthwhile, with her at my side
it's me and her against the world, against them all
just what i need, but that lonely
thought keeps rattling in my mind, dreams of it
going down the deep, end so quickly, and suddenly
can't help but fear of it taking place, grounds unsafe yet nothings broke
so nothing to fix, setting this up for a jinx
been through this, time and time again, will this one have a similar end

is she the one, the one for me
just can't believe, met my dream
heart beating fast, doing a dance
will this one last, will this one last

hope to never, see the day we're through
inevitably i think the day will come, saying goodbye to all the fun
scared to have, it all end, couldn't bare to watch it unfold
losing my friend, easy come but, not to let go, can't help the, thoughts of us
splitting up, have a taste, to chase fucking up
is this what it feels like to be madly in love
will my all, be enough

is she the one, the one for me
just can't believe, met my dream
heart beating fast, doing a dance
will this one last, will this one last
Track Name: Non Grata
the story goes, a boy all to his own
no one around, always alone
no jokes to be told, no hands to hold
they'll never know
being all on your own
lost soul, lost cause, wondering how i got this far
poor old me, never had a shot
how much more do i need to endure

you will never know loneliness like i know
all my life, persona non grata
you will never know loneliness like i know
on my own, persona non grata

all alone with a friendly wit
never had a chance
relationships a distant wish
alienation at first glance, as if i'm shunned
table just for one, don't it sound like fun
lonely being me, real treat to see
couples and cliques, groups and teams
they'll never think, to talk to me

you will never know loneliness like i know
all my life, persona non grata
you will never know loneliness like i know
on my own, persona non grata

the story goes, a boy all to his own
no one around, always alone
no jokes to be told, no hands to hold
how much more do i need to endure

you will never know loneliness like i know
all my life, persona non grata
you will never know loneliness like i know
on my own, persona non grata
Track Name: It's All a Game
won't stop when you can, can't stop when you want
and all you want is for the pain to go away
20 and some years is plenty to make or break a man
but after all it's just a game, and sure is a wicked shame

i know its a wicked shame, but after all its all a game
i know its a wicked shame, stuck playing this wicked game

all you'll ever want, all you'll ever need
in your tightly clenched fist, you look back
and reminisce, how it felt to be alive and well
the day will come, when you ask yourself
is it better to die, roll over
and stay where you lie, but its worth the fight
tryna salvage your life

i know it's a wicked shame, but after all its all a game
i know its a wicked shame, stuck playing this wicked game
i know it's a wicked shame, but after all its only a game
i know it's a wicked shame, but after all its only a game
Track Name: Is Love 2 Much?
i could go for days and days
with a girl like her, working all sorts of ways
we were inseparable from each other
but did we ever love one another
safe to say our hearts weren't tied
together, even though it's heart pumping nights
booty call cuz the booty calling
clothes come off and I'm all in

bad little piece starts with a kiss
ima fiend she's my fix
but there'll never be more than lust
between us, running out of ways to make it just
the morning after got me thinking
there's more to life than sex filled weekends
could i resist her touch
is love asking for too much

could i resist her touch
is love too much
Track Name: Same Mistakes
this ain't the way to live, ain't the way to be
over and over we make the same mistakes
eternal greed in order to succeed, take take and take for material sake
decency has gone astray, selfishness has kept it at bay

how'd we end up living this way
the end is near I'm sad to say
the gift of life turned disarray
the end is here unless we change our ways

working all day but we can't break even
how'd this become the life we lead
watching our lives wither away
just to get payed a paltry wage
molded into drones with grandiose egos
dig dig dig till you can't get out the hole
the day will come when we go home
our loving mother will swallow us whole

how'd we end up living this way
the end is near I'm sad to say
the gift of life turned disarray
the end is here unless we change our ways

it really doesn't matter in life's grand scheme
so give a helping hand no need for greed
all we see is no more than a dream
after all, it's death that gives life meaning
Track Name: Guilt Ridden Wandering Eyes
weaving tales, leading them through deceitful trails
never fails to derail the relationship
different girl but the same old stupid quip
i can tell when it's over right from the tip

still they line up one by one
i do it for laughs and i do it for fun
when I'm through and when I'm done
for the hills they all run

then one day i met her, seemed to be the next for sure
but it was my time, she was my demise
i learned from the lesson hiding in disguise
remembered all they cried while tears roll down my eyes

still they line up one at a time
but my guilt ridden wandering eyes
fail to see why i tried
then i met her, the love of my life
Track Name: Smoking Jacket Struck Out
she left to catch her breath, asking myself what is left
we were hand in hand side by side, sure had me fooled for quite a while
kept her warm when it's cold, now the relationships as good as sold
good as gone are the times we had, remembering times with my only friend
out of all the ways this is how it ends? i look back only to see her pretend
alone again without a doubt, smoking jacket struck out

the writings on the wall for all to see
can't help who i am, undeniably me
its a gift yet a curse, blessed tragedy
she up and left cuz im, undeniably me

don't wanna say goodbye but it's just a waste of time
tryna find reasons why to continue this lie
promises she makes are promises she breaks
ain't looking like me and her got what it takes
took my jacket and she took my heart, even though i saw it right from the start
alone again without a doubt, smoking jacket struck out

the writings on the wall for all to see
can't help who i am, undeniably me
its a gift yet a curse, blessed tragedy
she up and left cuz im, undeniably me

alone again no doubt
smoking jacket struck out
Track Name: Shaped Into Sheep
there's no escaping these handheld monsters
no place left where it hasn't left it's mark
on our every move and it's gone too far
told how and what to do before we even start
starting early leaving late won't get you very far
modernized times taking its toll
live your life no need to follow what you're told
or get a diploma work all day and regret it when you're older

shaping us into sheep people can't you see
open up your eyes and live your life,
leave the rat race to the rats and the mice
or do as you're told and you'll be dead before you die

what happened to our soul and our spirit
the charade has gone on for far too long
we're the majority, no need to fear em
hiding behind flags because they know they're wrong
filled to the brim with the best kind of lies
big brother watching my back, front and both my sides
americas dream is to work our lives away
clocking in as the clock ticks on the rest of our days

shaping us into sheep people can't you see
open your eyes and start living your life
leave the rat race to the rats and the mice
or do as you're told and you'll be dead before you die
