Quicksand
Why did you ditch me last night?
Are we having another fight?
Why must you always do the stupid things that you do?
You always have an excuse around my neck.
Tighten the Noose.
And if you want out just say so, leave me alone, and just go.
 
I try my best to understand,
but it's like I'm sinking in your quicksand.
 
Why can't you just say what's wrong instead of dragging this out so long?
I'm sorry if I did something to hurt you, but I can't see things from your view.
I can't take all this any longer.  Without you, I'll be ten times strong.
So I'm taking back my heart you chewed, and I'm taking back those years that you screwed.
 
(Chorus)
 
And when the sky turns blue to grey.
And my hearts just black and blue.
I'll get the nerve to say to you.
It's over, yeah we're through.
 
Cause I try to get out to apologize,
but as I try I sink to my eyes.
 
Oh oh oh oh......

Goodbye Friend
 
Up to your driveway I want to do this the right way,
But the right way is something i will never know,
So katie lets take this slow, try not to think,
One year complete with one short blink...
Eyes slowly closing now i can hardly breathe, 
This our last nite, let's make it one they wont believe,
This kiss from me to you, then i must go, 
So take this time please make it slow. 
 
I'm leaving I'm leaving I'm leaving I'm leaving
So Kiss me
(ditto) Don't miss me (and repeat)
 
 The best night and the best kiss with a deep breath to be missed. 
(repeat and continue)
Goodbye and goodnight I saw the sky I saw the light 
I saw your name across the sky, you were my life.    
(Repeat)
(Chorus)

Sweet Sara
 
SAAAAAARRRRAAAAAAA
 
They tuck her in and kiss her head.
Do everything that they're supposed to do,
But it's tv and Sara can't get love.
Not even with the flu, and it's a mess.
 
So Piss off! and you wonder why Sara wets the bed
While dad drinks a 40, Mom's snorting coc (short for cocaine)
and it's a wonder why she isn't even dead
 
The honor roll, it's in her head.
On the couch her parents are drinkin'
And they say just put that fuckin' kid to bed
But she's reading all her Spanish, "Tienes Sed."
 
(CHORUS!)
 
Sweet sweet SAAAraaaaaa, Sweet sweet SARA!
 
( SO CHORUS! 2 times!)
 

Dream of Me
 
(Remember when we were kids, we sure had some fun back then)
 
I can't tell you how much I miss hearing
Your voice on the phone and together we are all alone
I can remember those days that you camped on my porch
Eating nothing but cookies and cream
 
The wind blows through the trees
And it looks like it's going to rain
The house is falling apart
I see a figure moving inside
The screen door slams
And she drops her cup of tea
The look on her face is all I need
 
(CHORUS!)
 
Take my hand, understand, come with me, you will see
Let the rain fall on your head, turn your back on where you've been
Take my hand, understand, come with me, you will see
Let the rain fall on your head, turn your back on where you've been
(ANOTHER DAY!)
When you're lying asleep do you dream of me?
When you're lying asleep do you dream of me?

On the Floor
 
I can't believe you're gone
This car crash will be our song
We'll dance again in the stars
On top of this ruined car
And when I see you there
I'll apologize for what I did
Just like I tried to before
But you were lifeless on the floor
But you were lifeless on the floor
 
I grabbed your arm and said hold on
I tried to save us from disaster
I know you can't change the past
But I wish I could have her back
(repeat)
 
The wheels locked up and slid for hours
And the power brakes give and take
And the years go by in just one flash
A rash of feeling over your body
The reflection I see in the mirror
Over and over again
My reflection is not relevant
Only a vent of anger and tears
A vent of anger and tears
 
(CHORUS!)
 
I'm gonna break this mirror
I'm gonna stop this cycle
This silent conversation is pointless
Unless you are here
 
I hope that you can hear me
I hope you see I'm floored and torn
From this silence, it's breaking me apart
 
Two pieces that can't be fixed
Just turn to bricks and fall
To the ocean floor before I even get my chance
To see you there, I'll be as strong as possible
My soul punishment, to see you lifeless on the floor
On the floor (repeat!)
 
 

What did we Forget?
 
AHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh AHhhhhhhhhhhh
AHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh AHHHHHHhhhh
 
Pack the van, prepared equipped, don't forget the power strips
Can't be late, gotta get paid, and remember to have a good time
Glued to booths, so yeah we're underage, we didn't come to get laid, anyway
Its time to sit, move your shit, its time for us to play
 
BREAKING MICS, PLAYING NIGHTS,
Wake up next day do it one more time (2x)
 
Grab the mic and let it go, its time to play its time let's go
Epitome Shmitome, this is us its who we are
Glued to booths, so yeah we're underage, we didn't come to get laid anyways
Its time to sit, move your shit, its time for us to play
 
(CHORUS!)
 
So Tell your friends, we'll be back again
Tell your friends we'll be back again!
 
(CHORUS!)

Untitled
Open my eyes rise and shine, yesterday's clothes, but they smell fine
Open the door, step into the sun, its weak this morning, but its bright
I feel the wind pick up, its cold and harsh and wrestling with my hair
but i could care less, in fact its somewhat comforting,
Its fresh and new like you I suppose,
I hope this stays, I hope this remains.
 
BYE BYE BYE night sky, by the way
HELLO HELLO today I feel great
I've never had my thoughts so straight
When you come near I float in space
And you revolve my day
 
So Hilary if you'd like to know I'm always there for you
Even if your mood is getting low, and if you scrape your knee
I'll be there to keep it from bleeding, I'll kiss your cheek
That's better right, its always better together, I know...
I KNOW I'M RIGHT!
 
(CHORUS!)
 
So if its not clear, I'm trying my best to make me feel young again
Today is strangely new, I wanna play with you know who
Not her, but you, little brown eyes, the sun is mine selfishly mine
I'll share I will I swear, I wanna be with you
 
(CHORUS!) Days evolve to night
                     Thoughts provoke a fight
                     We can make this right
                     We can make this right
 
BYE BYE BYE NIGHT SKYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!! (repeat)
HELLO HELLOooooooooo Morning....
 

The Waiting Game
Spring Break has come today and everybody's gone away
But what's a week anyway?
 
And as the tensions fade and minds start wondering
About tomorrow and what it brings
Spring comes to set us free, but questions ask where I'm at
And where will you be when you come back
Will your mind still refer to feelings from the past?
 
Spring break has come today and everybody has Gone away
 
And we watch crack the whip
Kiss under Lincoln's feet on Harrison and lights of cars go by
Thin streams of yellow and white, but questions asked
Where I'm at and Where will you be when you come back?
And will your mind still refer to feelings from the past?
 
Spring break has come today and everybody has gone away
(gone away... away)
And she's gone will she change? (will she change?)
But I've chosen to stay
 
(DIALOGUE!)
 
(CHORUS!)
 
(CHORUS!)
 
SPRING BREAK HAS COME TODAY! (spring break has come today!)
 

Weeknight Windshield Letter
Sing me a song I know Princess (Ohs)
And I will sing along (Ohs)
An upbeat happy one or something soft and slow (Ohs)
 
And I'm so Lucky, that you are near me, that you are with me
And I'm so Happy, every kiss we share is a mystery
 
Sing me a song I know and I will sing along
An upbeat happy one or something soft and slow
Tuck your guitar in baby and I'll do the same for you
Pull these covers up, we'll fall asleep sometimes dreams come true
 
I'm so Lucky, that you are near me, that you are with me
And I'm so Happy, and every kiss we share is a mystery
 
(ohs and more different ohs throughout)
 
I'm so Luckyyyyyyyyy
I'm so Happyyyyyyyy
