The Chronicles of Life and Death
band: Good Charlotte



you come in cold
you're covered in blood
they're all so happy you've arrived
the doctor cuts your cord
hand you to your mom
she sets you free into this life

and where do you go
with no destination
no map to guide you
wouldn't you know
that it doesn't matter
we all end up the same

these are the chronicles of life and death
these are the stories of our lives as fictional and they may seem
you come in this world
and you go out just the same
today can be the best day of your life

and money talks
in this world
that's what idiots will say
but you'll find out
that this world
is just and idiot's parade

before you go
yo've got some questions
and you want answers
but no you're old
cold covered in blood
right back to where you started from

these are the chronicles of life and death
these are the stories of our lives as fictional and they may seem
you come in this world
and you go out just the same
today can be the worst day of your life

these are the chronicles of life and death
these are the stories of our lives as fictional and they may seem
you come in this world
and you go out just the same
today can be the best day of your life
today can be the worst day of your life
today can be the last day of your life

it's your life

S.O.S.
Is anybody listening?
Can they hear me when I call?
I'm shooting signals in the air
'Cause I need somebody's help
I can't make it on my own
So I'm giving up myself
Is anybody listening?
Listening

I'll be standing here and I'm miles away
Making signals hoping they'd save me
I lock myself inside these walls
'Cause out there I'm always wrong
I don't think I'm gonna make it
So while I'm sitting here
On the eve of my death bed
I'll write this letter and hope it saves me

Is anybody listening?
Can they hear me when I call?
Should I take notes in the end?
'Cause I need somebody's help
I can't make it on my own
So I'm giving up myself
Is anybody listening?
Listening

I'm stuck in my own head and I'm oceans away
Would anybody notice if I chose to stay?
I'll send and SOS tonight
Wonder if I will survive
How in the hell did I get so far away this time
So now I'm sitting here
The time of my departure's near
I say a prayer
Please someone save me

Is anybody listening?
Can they hear me when I call?
Should I take notes in the end?
'Cause I need somebody's help
I can't make it on my own
So I'm giving up myself
Is anybody listening?
Listening

I'm lost here
I can't make it on my own
I don't wanna die alone
I'm so scared
Drowning now
Reaching out
Holding on to everything I love
Crying out
Dying now
Need some help

Is anybody listening?
Can you hear me when I call?
Shooting signals in the air
I need somebody's help
I can't make it on my own
So I'm giving up myself
Is anybody listening?back to top
I Just Wanna Live
I need an alarm system in my house
So I know when people are
Creeping about
These people are
Freaking me out

It's getting hectic everywhere that I go
They won't leave me alone
There's things they all wanna know

I'm paranoid about the people I meet
Why are they talking to me
And why can't anyone see

I just wanna live
Don't really care about the things that they say
Don't really care about what happens to me
I just wanna live
Just wanna live
Just wanna live
Just wanna live
Just wanna live
Just wanna live
Just wanna live

I rock a
Lawsuit when I'm going to court
A white suit when I'm gettin' divorced
A black suit at the funeral home
And my birthday suit when I'm home alone
Talkin' on the phone
Got an interview
With the rolling stone
They're saying
Now you're rich and
Now you're famous
And fake ass girls all know your names and
Lifestyles of the rich and famous
Was your first hit aren't you ashamed
Of the life
Of the life
Of the life we're living

I just wanna live
Don't really care about the things that they say
Don't really care about what happens to me
I just wanna live

Stop your messin' around boy
Better think a your future
Better make some good plans boy
Said everyone of my teachers

Lookout
You better play it safe
You never know what hard times will come your way
We say
Where we're coming from
We've already seen
The worst that this life can bring

Now we're expected everywhere that we go
All the things that they say
Yeah we already know

I just wanna live
Don't really care about the things that they say
Don't really care about what happens to me
I just wanna live
I just wanna live
Don't really care about the things that they say
Don't really care about what happens to me
I just wanna liveback to top
Ghost of You
band: good charlotte



i will wait until the end
when the pendulum does swing back
to the darker side of our hearts bleeding
and i will save this empty space next to me
like it's a grave
where i lay a place for us to sleep eternally together

i have been
searching for
traces of what we were

a ghost of you
is all that i have left
it's all that i have left of you to hold
i wake in the night to find there's no one there but me
there's nothing left of what we were at all

so here i am pacing around this house again
with pictures of us living on these walls
i see my breath in the cold of the air that i breathe
and i'm wondering
i'm wondering if it's you that i feel
if it's you that i feel
here haunting me forever

i have been
searching for
traces of what we were

a ghost of you
is all that i have left
it's all that i have left of you to hold
i wake in the night to find there's no one there but me
there's nothing left of what we were at all

i'm not looking for
anything but us
anything but what we were
and i'm not asking for
painted memories
i only want to know you're here

a ghost of you
is all that i have left
it's all that i have left of you to hold
i wake in the night to find there's no one there but me
nothing left of what we were at all

a ghost of you
is all that i have left
it's all that i have left of you to hold
i wake in the night to find there's no one there but me
and nothing left of what we were at allback to top
Predictable
something isnt right
i can feel it again, feel it again
this isnt the first time
that you left me waiting

Sad excuses and false hopes high
i saw this coming
still i dont know why
i let you in

i knew it all along
youre so predictable
i knew something would go wrong(somethings always wrong)

so you dont have to call
or say anything at all
youre so predictable (so predictable)

so take your empty words and broken promises
and all the time you stole cause i am done with this
i can give it away, give it away
im doing everything i should have
and now im making a change
im living the day
im giving back what you gave me
i dont need anything

i knew it all along
youre so predictable
i knew something would go wrong(somethings always wrong)

so you dont have to call
or say anything at all
youre so predictable (so predictable)

everywhere i go
everyone i meet
everytime i try to fall in love
they all wanna know im so broken
why am i so cold
why im so hard inside
why am i scared?
what am i afraid of
i dont even know
this storys never had an end
ive been waiting
ive been searching
ive been hoping
ive been dreaming you would come back
but i know the ending of this story
youre never coming back
never (fades and echos out)

i knew it all along
youre so predictable
i knew something would go wrong(somethings always wrong)

so you dont have to call
or say anything at all
youre so predictable (so predictable)

everywhere i go for the rest of my life
everyone i love
everyone i care about
theyre all gonna wanna know whats wrong with me
and i know what it is
im ending this right nowback to top
Secrets
In the dark
In the darkness you will find
Dirty little secrets we all hide
Cause' we all have a darker side
A place we keep where no one else will find

Cause' everybody wants to hide their secrets away
Nobody wants to stand up to the pain
But I will stand up to the pain
Wake up and fight again
If you could dance with me through this rain
And we will fight, weíll fight again, fight again

In the back, in the closets of your mind
Thats where skeletons and dirty secrets hide
And I'll rip out my insides
And leave them on this bed for you tonight

Cause' everybody wants to hide their secrets away
Nobody wants to stand up to the pain
But I will stand up to the pain
Wake up and fight again
If you could dance with me through this rain
And we will fight, weíll fight again, fight again
(fight again, fight again)Ö

Nobody left, I hide my secrets away,
In the dark, in the dark, in the dark
We all try to hide our secrets away,
In the dark, in the dark, in the dark

Stand up to the pain
Wake up and fight again
If you could dance with me through this rain
And we will fight, weíll fight again, fight again
Fight again
Cause' everybody wants to hide their secrets away
And thatís ok
Nobody wants to stand up to the pain
Fight againback to top
The Truth
So here we are
We are alone
Thereís weight on your mind
I wanna know
The truth
If this is how you feel
Say it to me
If this was ever real

[Chorus:]
I want the truth
From you
Give me the truth
Even if it hurts me
I want the truth
From you
Give me the truth
Even if it hurts me

I want the truth

So this is you
You talking to me
You found a million ways to let me down
So Iím not hurt when youíre not around
I was blind
But now I see
This is how you feel
Say it to me
If this was ever real

[Chorus]

I know that this will break me
I know that this might make me cry
You gotta say whatís on your mind, on your mind
I know that this will hurt me
And break my heart and soul inside
But I donít wanna live this life

[Chorus]

I donít care no more, no
Just give me the truth
Give me the truth
Cuz I donít care no more
Give me the truth
Cuz I donít care no more, no
Just give me the truth
Give me the truth
Give me the truth
Give me the truth
Give me the truth
Cuz I donít care no more, noback to top
The World Is Black
Turn on channel seven at a quarter to eight
You see the same damn thing it's just a different day and
No one really knows why this is happening
But it's happening
And everywhere you go it's just a different place
You get the same dark feeling
See the same sad faces
No one really cares that this is happening

We come into this world
And we all are the same
In that moment there's no one to blame

But the world is black
And hearts are cold
And there's no hope
That's what we're told
And we can't go back
It won't be the same
Forever changed
By the things we say, say

Living in this place it's always been this way
There's no one doing nothing so there's nothing changed
And I can't live when this world just keeps dying
It's dying
People always tell me this is part of the plan
That God's got everybody in his hands
But I can only pray that God is listening
Is he listening?

We're living in this world
Growing colder everyday
Nothing can stay perfect now I say

But the world is black
And hearts are cold
And there's no hope
That's what we're told
And we can't go back
It won't be the same
Forever changed
By the things we say, say, say

We come into this world
And we all are the same
And in that moment there's no one to blame
But we're living in this world
Growing colder everyday
Nothing can stay perfect now I say

The world is black
And hearts are cold
There's no hope
That's what we're told
And we can't go back
(We can't go back)
It won't be the same
(It won't be the same)
Forever changed
(What will ever change)
By the things we say, say, say

Turn on channel seven at a quarter to eight
You see the same damn thing it's just a different day
And no one really knows why this is happeningback to top
Mountain
Okaypeople... THis is my first time submitting anything,
and I've noticed that the other versons of this song are wrong...
so I'm hoping this is the right version from a HUGE GC fan.
POST AND CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG!!! Thankies!

WOAH.

All these dreams and all these plans,
I built them all with these two hands,
Everything I've realized my dreams.

The city lights shine down and they blind me sometimes,
But through it all I was lost but I found my way

So tell me what you want 'cause I would give you anything,
Tell me what you need and I'll go get it.
I'd give up all these dreams to have you in my arms right now,
I'd give up everything and I'd forget it.

I wasn't on a mountain
When it came to me.
All my life's been wasted,
Chasing shallow dreams.

So here we are,
Let me lift you up and show you this world over me,
And all these things what I've gained and what I've said,
It can't compare to the love that you could give to me.

So tell me what you want 'cause I would give you anything,
Tell me what you need and I'll go get it.
I'd give up all these dreams to have you in my arms right now,
I'd give up everything and I'd forget it.

I wasn't on a mountain
When it came to me.
All my life's been wasted,
Chasing shallow dreams.

Years go by
And nothing's slowing down the time
Years go by
And then they're wasted.
All this time
I thought that I gained everything,
If you are not mine
I'm so empty.

I wasn't on a mountain
When it came, when it came to me.
All my life's been wasted,
Chasing shallow dreams.

So please come back to me, I'm right here waiting
So please come back to me, to me...back to top
We Believe
theres a woman crying out tonight
her world has changed, she has gone white
her only son has died
and now her daughter cries
she cant sleep at night

downtown another day for all the suit and ties
another war to fight
theres no regard for life
how do they sleep at night
how can we make things right
just wanna make this right

we believe (x5)
we believe in this love

we are all the same
human and
all our ways and all our pains
(so let it be)
theres a love that could fall down like rain
(let us see)
Let forgiveness wash away the pain
(What we need)
And no one really knows what they are searching for
(We believe)
This world is crying for so much more

we believe (x5)
We believe in this love
we believe (x5)
we believe in this love

So this world
Is too much
For you to take
Just lay it down in front of me
I'll be everything you need
In every way

We believe
We believe
We believe
We believe
We believe
We believe
In this love
(In this love)
We believe
(In this love)
We believe
(In this love)
We believe

It Wasn't Enough
[x3]

I will try to believe in the things I cannot see
But my faith is shaking now like it's never been before
When I call
And you don't come
I don't know what I should do
Should I call?
Should I even count on you?

I'm giving all I can
It wasn't enough
To keep you in my hands
Should I give up?
I try to understand
Was it ever enough?
I don't understand

So here I am once again
With my back against the wall
Afraid to show you
Afraid to tell you
I don't know you like I did
I've never been so alone
I've never felt so insecure
And now I don't know where I'm going
In my life I'm not so sure

I'm giving all I can
It wasn't enough
To keep you in my hands
Should I give up?
I try to understand
Was it ever enough?
I don't understand

Giving up tonight
I won't let go
Won't let go of you
Giving up tonight
I wanna show you
Wanna show you

Am I giving up?
Giving up

I don't wanna give this up
I won't

[Chorus]

Everything you want from me
I fought so hard for everything
Everything you want from me
I tried so hard could never be
Anything you want from me
Anything you want from me
I gave it allback to top
In This World (Murder)
band: good charlotte


In this world all of our sins are simple
We choose death over innocent life
And in this world it's not our money that's evil
It's the ones who choose it over life
And in my heart i can not believe in this murder
And i will not be fed by the lie, or the life
That is created just to be murdered, it's murder

No matter how hard they try
And no matter how loud they cry
They can't buy their way into heaven
No matter how hard they try
And no matter how high they climb up the ladder
They won't reach up into heaven

And they can't see the innocent lives
The pointless suffering
And in my heart i wanna undo all this murder
And give back the innocent life
Open cages and stop their luxurious murder, it's murder

No matter how hard they try
And no mattrer how loud they cry
They can't buy their way into heaven
No matter how hard they try
And no matter how high they climb up the ladder
They won't reach up into heaven

Murder- innocent life
Innocent- what have we done?
No mercy for beautiful
Money for blood, is murder

No matter how hard they try
And no mattrer how loud they cry
They can't buy their way into heaven
No matter how hard they try
And no matter how high they climb up the ladder
They won't reach up into heaven

No matter how hard they try
And no mattrer how loud they cry
They can't buy their way into heaven
No matter how hard they try
And no matter how high they climb up the ladder
They won't reach up into heaven

Meet My Maker
I'll meet my maker tonight

So this is it
This is my life
This is my time
It's ending tonight
I made my mistakes
I tried to live right
Stepped out of the darkness into the light
And when I'm gone
Will they remember
Will they mourn
Will they move on
When my sad songs for lonely son
His time has come his life is done

And tonight
We'll celebrate the end
Of this life
And we'll sing
Yeah, yeah, yeah , yeah

Whhooaa aaooohh
It's alright

With open arms
This is the way
The way I'll meet my maker tonight

And on my grave
What will it say?
Here lies another soul that was saved
So please don't cry
Just sleep at night
And I will wait on the other side

And tonight
we'll celebrate the end
Of this life
And we'll sing
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Whooaahh ooohhh
It's alright
This is a night

With open arms
This is the way
The way I'll meet my maker tonight

And tonight
We'll celebrate the end
Of this life
And we'll sing
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Whooaaa ooohh
It's alright
This is a night I again

With open arms
This is the way
The way I'll meet my maker tonight

Whhoooaaa oohhh (x6)back to top
