Little Things
Like the time in school when we got free lunch,
And the cool kids beat us up (reduced lunch),
And the rich kids had convertibles,
And we had to ride the bus (55),
Like the time we made the baseball team,
But they still laughed at us (you still suck!),
Like the time that girl broke up with me,
'cause I wasn't cool enough (trick!!)

Chorus
The little things, little things,
They always hang around,
The little things, little things,
They try to break me down,
The little things, little things,
They just won't go away,
The little things, little things,
Made me who I am today,

Bridge

You wanna hate me now,
But I won't stop now,
'cause I can't stop now,

Like the time mom went to that institute,
'cause she was breakin' down (I just can't take it!),
Like the car we had that wouldn't start,
We had to walk to get around (can I get a ride? ),
And that same year on christmas eve,
Dad went to the store (uhhh¡­see you guys later),
We checked his room,
His things were gone,
We didn't see him no more (dick!),

Waldorfworldwide
Listen up 'cause there ain't nothin' funny,
I wanna hot girl and a little bit of money,
I wanna little house where my band can live,
'cause we're tired of movin' every other weekend,
I wanna go to parties where they got no guns,
I wanna rock with my band I wanna have a little fun,
Where thugs and punks and another other type,
Can sing this song and up sing it all night,
Everything's gonna be alright now,
Everything's gonna be alright,
Get down stay up all night now,
Let's do this one more time,
Everything'll be alright,
Everything will be alright, alright,
All I wanna do is kick the welfare,
All I wanna do is get my share,
And I don't wanna run for the president,
I just want an honest way to pay my rent,
And I'm tired of the man always shuttin' us down,
Tired of my old man 'cause he's never around,
And I'm tired of eating off of other people's plates,
And I don't look important so they're tellin' me to wait,
Police records said they wouldn't exist,
I wanna know the meaning of a christmas list,
Said all I wanna do is kick the welfare,
All I wanna do is get my share,
All I wanna do is make somethin' from nothin',
It's gc baby and we're workin' with somethin',

Chorus

We'll be self-made millionaires,
These lives we'll lead without a care,
Oh yeah,
And we'll see what we'll be,
Everything's gonna be alright now,
Everybody say ah yeah that's right,
Everything's gonna be alright now,
Everybody say it one more time,
Everything will be alright, alright,
We'll see you when we get there,
We'll see you when we get there,
On the video,
Or the radio,
In the magazines,
On the movie screens.back to top
Motivation Proclamation
Spend your lazy, endless crazy, days inside my head
You're so selfish, you're not the only, one who thinks he's dead
I'm paid to smile, now I'm on trial, for what you think I said,

Bridge:
But I never said, that everything, would be ok
And I never said, that we would live, to see another day,

Chorus:
Motivate me, I wanna get myself out of this bed
Captivate me, I want good things inside of my head
If I fall down, would you come around, and pick me right up off the ground
(repeat once more)

Unrealistic, un-artistic, you say I'm selfish, and absurd
You try to change me, try to save me, you say I'm gonna learn
I'm so blind, I'm out of time, you're so un-kind, sometimes
I never lied, I never lied, I never lied,

Bridge

Cause I never said, that everything, would be ok
And I never said, that we would live, to see another day, yeah, yeah,

Chorus

(guitar solo)

Cause everything, it'll be ok, you know we're gonna live, to see another day,
Yeah, yeah

Motivate me
(benji)- I wanna get myself out of this...
Motivate me, yeah
(benji)- I wanna get myself out of this...
Motivate me
(benji)- I wanna get myself out of this...
Motivate me, yeah
(benji)- I wanna get myself out of this, bed!

East Coast Anthem
Walking on the streets of d.c.,
On the eastcoast where I live,
You say what's the problem,
What's with this angry kid? ,
You don't like the way I walk,
Or the way I talk,
Or the way I swing my hands,
You don't like the words I speak,
Or the thoughts I think,
And I know you'll never understand,
You know - on the eastcoast,
We ride until we die - you know,

Chorus
Well there's a place inside my mind,
Yeah a place you'll never find,
There's a place inside my mind walk this way,
There's a place inside my mind yeah a place you'll never find,
There's a place inside my mind we'll leave today,

Wouldn't it be perfect if I could sit with you? ,
And we would, change a thing or two,
We could change a thing or two,
We would change the way you think,
We would change the way I think,
We can't change the way they think so we're not changing anything,

Chorus

Bridge?

On the eastcoast we ride,
Until the day we die.back to top
Festival Song
I don't care about a thing today,
I used to bet I'm fed up,
And I can hear the words you say,
I wish that you would shut up,
I've got responsibility,
That is my liability,
A menace to society,
At least that's what they say to me,

Chorus
But tonight, tonight it's on tonight,
I don't want your boring life,
And I don't want your 9 to 5,
Or anyone to tell me how to live my life,

People always tell me not to waste my time,
To get a real job and get back in line,
You can't say I'll never be a millionaire,
Tell me this guitar won't get me anywhere,
I've got responsibility, that is my liability,
I'm questioning authority, they say there's not,
A chance for me,

Chorus

Your future's no future,
Your future's no future,
Your future's no future,
I control my future.back to top
Complicated
One time,........(one time),
Alright here we go,(two times),
One time through your mind,your body and your soul
Everytime,let it rhyme,you know I'm in control. alright (here we go, here we go,
Here we go..)

And we've been here for so many years,
Still it seems as if you're not there (are you there),
Every time I talk you turn away (do you care),
Isn't dad an obligation to care,(and we said)

Chorus
And we've been here for so many years,so many years
Still it seems,(what)
So complicated, overrated, complicated,this feeling is love,

Well I came in the door,
I said it before,
I never let the stress get
Me down no more, giving thanks to the lord,yo I pray everyday,
Giving shouts to my peeps and this is what we say,

Chorus

You got your one little room with a black and white tv,
You got your one single bed,that you don't wanna see,
You're living all alone you're like a dog without a bone,
You're living all alone 'cause you left us all at home,
Well you had a second chance but you threw it all away,
A fourth and fifth and sixth,now that was yesterday
Now you're sitting at a bar just drowning in your tears,
Lonely in the corner while everybody cheers,

Chorus

Six dollars in your pocket one's a secret stash,
Three's for alcohol and two's for cigarettes,(alright)

Seasons
Summer air reminds me of all the feelings of your love,
And what it was like when we were together,
Walking all along the beach, you were never far from my reach,
And you held me through the stormy weather,

Chorus
And I want to fall in love tonight,
And I remember when you said everything is gonna be alright,

Laying in the summer grass,
You told me not to talk so fast as I told you how I feel,
You made me feel right at home,
You told me I was not alone and you knew just how I feel,

Chorus

I know we talked about it,
I just can't get around it,
I just want one more night with you,

Chorus

October air reminds me of all the feelings of your love,
And what it was like, when we were together,
The smell of fall is everywhere and though it seems,
I just don't care, 'cause now you're gone away,

Chorusback to top
I Don't Wanna Stop
all these games you play,
you're messin' with my head (messin with my head)
I don't know why I stay
I should leave instead (I should leave instead),
When I speak from my heart,
you laugh like it's a game (this ain't no game)
Yeah we'd make great friends, but it just isn't the same

And I know this is not the way it should be,
And I know you treat him like me,
But I don't wanna stop, I don't wanna stop, I don't wanna stop

No I don't need you to buy me pretty things (you don't pay for me),
Pay for my tattoos or buy me diamond rings (we don't want those things),
All I know is that I'm happy to see you smile (i want to see you smile),
And it'd make my day if you'd just stay for awhile (stay with me),

This has gone on way too long...
And I'm tired of movin' on,back to top
I Heard You
Today I screwed up again,
You said I could tell in the way you said goodbye,
I saw you sitting at your t-shirt stand with your new boyfriend,
He's really cool,
I get the point,

Chorus
I don't want you, I don't want you,
I heard you, I heard you,
I heard you say,
Not a chance,
What don't you see,
I don't want you, I don't want you,
I heard you, I heard you,
I heard you say,
You're not good enough for me,

Today I screwed up again,
I wasn't paying attention,
I walked into the wall again,
I heard you laugh and saw you grin,
While you were sitting at your t-shirt stand,
With all your cool friends they're really cool,
I get the point,

Chorus

Today I'll give it one last try,
And then I know I'll wonder why,
I did it to myself once again,
I saw your boyfriend he's 6'3¡±,
Quarterback on varsity, the football players love to torture me,
So I'm feeling like I'm not fitting in,
I know that I'm not fitting in with you,
And your stuck-up friends,
I get the point.back to top
Walk By
She walks down to the store at eight,
The devil walks with her and he thinks she's great,
When she looks at me, I don't know what I saw,
I think he's tryin' to make me his son in law

When she,
Walked by, walked by, walked by, she walked on by

(Lets go)

Egos fly when she walks by,
She caught my eye on October 9th,
that's 22 days before Halloween, How did I know she'd be my evil queen,

My mother warned me against girls like you,
She said stay away from them son, you know they're not true,
All they're gonna do is put you under a spell,
And when you're fallin' down, you're going straight to hellback to top
Let Me Go
Down in the streets outside of washington, d.c.,
I wasted all my time and you were there with me,
Back then it meant so much to have you by my side,
I always had your back and you always had mine,
Sayin' ¡­

Chorus
Let me go,
Have some fun,
Well my decision sucks yeah,
But I'm so young,

We'd hang out later and fight just trying to have fun,
We were such punk ass kids but we knew everyone,
And who could see through such blazedup bloodshot eyes,
There was a plan for us one day we'd realize,

Chorusback to top
Screamer
Communication is a lot like the wind when I speak,
It's like no one understands, and I'm left with empty hands,
Forever I can't speak,
So many things I'll never learn,
You can't cross bridges that you've burned,
Why is life such an issue in your mind,
Why are the answers to my problems hard to find,
So hard to find,
Don't forget to buckle when you fall,
Beneath the pressure of the seconds when,
Your life became a screamer,
Staring at the sea things become so small,
I want movies of my dreams, and pictures on my wall,
Pictures on my wall,

Chorus
You say that I'm a dreamer,
I say you're a non-believer,
Take out the light, take out the light start screamin',
I'm dreaming,
I'm a dreamer, no one believes me,
And you don't either,
So tell me what to,
Take out the light,
Take out the light,
Take out the light,
Take out the light start screaminback to top
Change
I am lost in the see-thru,
I think you lost yourself too,
Throughout all of this confusion,
I hope I somehow get to you,
I practiced all the things I'd say,
To tell you how I feel,
And when I finally get my chance,
It all seems so surreal,
¡®cause from the first time I saw you,
I only thought about you,
I didn't know you,
I wanted to hold onto,
The things you'd never say to me,
¡®cause you said,

Chorus
You can't change the way you feel,
I could never do that,
I could never do that,
But you can't tell me this ain't real, ¡®cause this is real,
And you would see right through that,
In the end it's all I've got,
So I'm gonna hold onto that,
So I'm gonna hold on and on and on and on,

Now you've got me watching your eyes,
Got me waiting just to see,
If it goes the way it never will,
Your eyes are watching me,
And now you've got me thinking ¡®bout,
The first time that I met you,
Standing in a crowded room,
But I could only see you,
And now I hope my words will get through,
¡®cause now I can't forget you,
I want to tell you,
If I could only reach you,
And make you feel this way,
But you said,
