And The Stars Go With You

Verse 1
Like yesterday
There's something old, something new
Along with me
Dim light and shadows
I want to walk with you
Please say yes
You can't keep a good man down
He'll always want to stand on his own
Help him to lift himself up
I've been trying to reach for the stars
Sometimes I come close
Other times I fall short
It's becoming a love-hate quest

Verse 2
World keeps turning
I'm yearning to shine so bright
To burn the dark eyes
I've been seeing myself with
Fascination becomes obsession
Admiration is no longer shown
Jealousy be still
To you it's effortless
It comes naturally
The light within you radiates
I don't believe it just happens that way
The mystery deepens

Verse 3
You're more than a simple creation
You're extraordinary
Luck delivers good fortune to you
I'd like to break bread with you
To learn things from the few
That shine as bright as you do

Chorus 1
You breathe
And the stars go with you

Chorus 2
You breathe
And the stars go with you
You get out of bed
Full of dreams and inspiration
I have tried but to no avail
To be like you
Maybe that's why I fail

We'll Laugh Again

Verse 1
You and I were two peas in a pod
Like white on rice
There was no me without you
And vice versa
You and I were inseparable
Always at each other's side
Lending a helping hand
And smiling along the way
Sometimes time would stand still
Occasionally, it zoomed right by
The ongoings of daily life
Preoccupied our hearts and minds
Even though I miss the times we spent together
I sense that we'll become reacquainted
And we'll laugh again

Verse 2
My heart beats
Because you gave me a piece of yours
I've learned how to forgive
And how to love completely
Even though I miss the conversations we had
I sense that we'll soon talk for hours on end
And we'll laugh again

Chorus 1
We'll laugh again
With comedians that are actually funny
We'll laugh again
At pictures taken ten and fifteen years ago
We'll laugh again
About the awkwardness we both felt
When we first met
We'll laugh again

Chorus 2
We'll laugh again
With comedians that are actually funny
We'll laugh again
At pictures taken ten and fifteen years ago
We'll laugh again
About the awkwardness we both felt
When we first met
We'll laugh again (2x)
With comedians that are actually funny
We'll laugh again (2x)
At pictures taken ten and fifteen years ago
We'll laugh again (2x)
With all the ones we adore and cherish
We'll laugh again (2x)
About the awkwardness we both felt
When we first met
Because we'll always be there for each other
No matter where we are
We'll laugh again

Commit This To Memory

Verse 1
Self-doubt dispenses itself into my brain
The madness created from it
May cause me to go insane
I don’t need a degree in psychology
To come to the realization that you’re no good for me
My heart jumps at the sound of your voice
To change nothing at all is definitely not a choice
To say “I am what I am” is no excuse
For all of the things you have said to me

Verse 2
My happiness revolves around how you feel
If there isn't a smile on your face
Then there’s rarely one on mine
I do what I can to hideaway from you
Even if it’s just a temporary solution
My body trembles at the sound of your voice
To change nothing at all is definitely not a choice
To say “This is the way I am” is no excuse
For all of the things you have done to me
To stop you from breaking me down
Is what I must do

Bridge
Don’t you dare forget how I feel about you
It just may be your last mistake
I'm sure you want to keep living your life
So stay the hell out of mine

Chorus
Commit this to memory
I dislike you intensely
Commit this to memory
All that you are is toxic to me

Lying

Verse 1
I love you, always and forever
With every beat of my heart
There is nothing that can tear us apart
I'll always be there for you
In anything that you go through
Never hesitate to ask me for something

Verse 2
You are my one true love
There is no question about that
With you in my life, I am complete
You belong to me and I belong to you
Every promise I make will be kept

Bridge
You have the warmest touch
You have the most beautiful eyes
You have a caring heart
You have an open mind
You have a gentle voice
You have a great complexion
And I am lucky to have you

Chorus 1
I am lying, I do it every day
It's hard for me to tell the truth
I don't want to hurt your feelings
So I tell you what you want to hear
I am lying

Chorus 2
I am lying, I do it every day
It's hard for me to tell the truth
I don't want to hurt your feelings
So I tell you what you want to hear

Chorus 3
I am lying, I do it every day
It's hard for me to tell the truth
I don't want to hurt your feelings
So I tell you what you want to hear
I am lying
I wish I could go back in time
To start all over again
Telling the truth is what I would do
No matter what the situation was
My conscience would be clearer
And you would know who I really am
Maybe I would be able to fall in love with you

Get In Where You Fit In

Verse 1
Get in where you fit in
Get out where you don’t
Find the place which you love most
And watch yourself grow
Walk right in
Keep complications out
But don’t hesitate to speak your mind
And to stand your ground

Chorus 1
Watch yourself grow
Get in where you fit in

Verse 2
Keep optimism high
And your worries low
Find something that nurtures your soul
And watch yourself grow
Rise up to proclaim truth
Dig deep to reveal personality
And watch yourself grow

Chorus 2
Get in where you fit in
And stay there
Watch yourself grow

Verse 3
Think about the future
But don’t forget your past
Living day in and day out
Can make you feel
Like you’re not alive
Listen to your body
And watch yourself grow

King of America

Verse 1
I’m all in favour of a dictatorship
Only if I’m the dictator
I’m all in favour of eroding rights
Only if mine are maintained
All citizens shall bow down before me
Dissenters will be punished
To the fullest extent of the law
This land is mine
And you’ll do as I say
Live by my rules or you’ll dearly pay

Verse 2
I’m all in favour of a shadow government
Only if I’m at the head of it
I’m all in favour of importing drugs
Only if I profit from them
All citizens are below me
My throne is mightier than their treasonous thoughts
I’ll spy with my all seeing eye
On those who show resistance
And turn them into sheeple

Bridge
In me you shall trust
For I am the King of America
Death, captivity, and misery
Are what you’ll get from me
In me you shall trust
For I am the King of America
Death, captivity, and misery
Are what you’ll get from me

Chorus
The Richard Lawrences
And Squeaky Frommes of this world
Will not force me into a fraternity
Of those who have came before me
And were too weak to hold onto their power
The J. Hinckley Jrs. and F.M. Durans of the world
Will never be allowed to overthrow me
As King of America there’s security
In knowing that I’ll reign
For as long as I choose to

If I Could Make A Living

Verse 1
If I could make a living
I’d living on my own
In a small sized apartment
With room just for me and my belongings
If someone could hire me
I’d send out my resumes
I wouldn’t have to compete against demographics
I’d be optimistic about my prospects

Verse 2
If I had gainful employment
I’d always be productive
Being punctual is what I would strive for
Arriving early is arriving on time
Exceeding expectations and going beyond limits
Can’t be utilized as an asset
If I’m perceived to be a liability

Verse 3
Getting by is difficult
Since I don’t have much
It’s easier to be grateful
For all that I have
When I’m part of the have not’s
Despite the hardships that I endure
I’m glad to be alive
God is the one who gave me life
But sometimes I feel like I don’t have potential

Chorus 1
I would be independent
By deciding on what’s best for me
Making choices that I wouldn’t regret
By weighing the cons against the pros
There’s no place that I wouldn’t work
There’s no task that I couldn’t complete
I’d be all I could be
If I could make a living

Chorus 2
I would be independent
By deciding on what’s best for me
Making choices that I wouldn’t regret
By weighing the cons against the pros
There’s no place that I wouldn’t work
There’s no task that I couldn’t complete
Excelling at my responsibilities
Would increase my personal capital
And eventually lead to a raise
Possibly a year-end bonus
I’d have more money to spend
But more importantly, more money to save
There’s no person that I wouldn’t work with
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
I’d be all I could be
If I could make a living

Politicians, Partisans, And Parasites

Verse 1
Politicians are liars
Partisans are despised
Parasites are feared
They’re all one in the same
They say voting is a privilege
But if you dare to disagree
With your colleagues
You’ll be labelled as a parasite
Shaking hands and holding babies
Is part of America’s greater good
Attack your opponent and you’ll be seen
As a champ or a parasite

Verse 2
Politicians are deceptive
Parasites are sell-outs
Parasites are nasty
They’re all one in the same
They say if you protest a war
You’re unpatriotic
If they had their way
You’d be tried for treason
Distorting facts
And appearing on Sunday morning talk shows
Is part of America’s greater good
Sling dirt at your opponent
You’ll be seen as a champ or a parasite

Bridge 1
Be born into a dynasty
Or graduate from law school
If you’re not fortunate enough
Get an image makeover
From the pros at Madison Avenue

Bridge 2
Is your sign an elephant or donkey?
Does your colour speak for your needs?
Assassinate your opponent
You’ll be seen as a champ or a parasite

Chorus 1
The White House is filled with dark secrets
The senate believes it can create every law
The House of Representatives looks out for themselves
Politicians, partisans, and parasites must be avoided

Chorus 2
The White House is filled with dark secrets
The senate believes it can create every law
The House of Representatives looks out for themselves
As the people remain silent

Who We Are Instead

Verse 1
I may come across as being shy and timid
But that’s just an act
I can weasel my way into situations
For my benefit
Winning is never tiring

Verse 2
You may come across as being nurturing
But that’s just an act
You tend to others varied feelings and emotions
Then manipulate them
People say you have a good heart
They say you have a kindred soul
Many would nominate you for Time’s Person of The Year
You’re a fierce competitor
Challenges give you a rush
When there’s something that you want
You fight everyone to win it

Bridge
You and I are human time bombs
Get too close to us
And we’re guaranteed to blow you away
We have tricks up our sleeves
Always finding clever ways
To get ahead of others
We win all the time

Verse 3
You and I may come across as being compassionate
But that’s just an act
Everyone should be mindful of us
We’ll turn lives upside down
And declare ourselves winners

Chorus 1
This is who I am instead
I like messing around with your head
You never know what you’ll get from me
Once you realize that I’m much different
Than I pretend to be

Chorus 2
This is who you are instead
You like messing around with heads
People never know what they’ll get from you
Once they realize that you’re much different
Than you pretend to be

Chorus 3
This is who we are instead
We like messing around with your head
You never know what you’ll get from us
Once you realize that we’re much different
Than we pretend to be

The Fiction We Live

Verse 1
He has charm, he has wit
He has die-hard looks
All the girls want to be with him
All the guys envy him
His father is pulling his strings
He's not sure how to break free
 
Bridge 1
Truth is difficult to define
Objectivity takes some time
Judgement is made without thought
Many battles have yet to be fought

Verse 2
She has style, she has grace
She is thoughtful, she is pleasant
All the guys want to be with her
All the girls envy her
Her mother is intimidating
She's not sure how to stand her ground

Bridge 2
Lies are difficult to define
Subjectivity does not waste time
Decisions are made by reasoning
There are more options than we realize
 
Bridge 3
Life is difficult to define
Unfortunately, there's not enough time
Emotions are suppressed
Exhaustion slowly takes hold

Verse 3
They have beliefs, they have intuition
They have been placed on a pedestal
All the girls scream out their names
All the guys are embarrassed
Their country is losing its soul
They're not sure how to reverse the trend

Bridge 4
Death is difficult to define
It's inevitable, we've been told all the time
Every illness cannot be cured
Surrendering may be wise

Chorus 1
The fiction we live is fragile
The fiction we live is the antithesis of our wants
The fiction we live identifies what we are not
The fiction we live is seen through our actions
Will the truth ever set us free?

Chorus 2
The fiction we live is fragile
The fiction we live is the antithesis of our wants
The fiction we live identifies what we are not
The fiction we live is seen through our emotions
Will the truth ever set us free?
Will the lies ever swallow us whole?
Will life ever be where we are?
Will death ever be out of sight?
