About to Get Ugly

-VERSE 1-
I’ve had about enough of the games that you play
Same ‘ol shit everyday
You think I’ll back down when push comes to shove
You’re about to unleash more than you dreamed of

-CHORUS-
So you wanna have a little fun
But I think that you’d be better run
You better bite your tongue
Things are about to get ugly
So you wanna start another fight
But you’d better get out of my sight
Live to see another night
Things are about to get ugly

-VERSE 2-
You’re a bully – in every sense of the word
Thinking you can always win seems a little absurd
You’re out numbered and your number is up
Your perception of reality is about to blowup

-BRIDGE-
You’ve been going through life pushing everyone else around
Now you’re gonna get a little beatdown
-CHORUS-

About to Get Ugly

-VERSE 1-
Feels like I’m sinking into quicksand
Trying to swim with rope tied around my hands
Locked inside a windowless room and I can’t break free

-PRE-CHORUS-
Never going up but never going down
Going in circles around and round

-CHORUS-
When will things change
When will I feel no more pain
Driving down this lonely road to nowhere
When will things change
When will my loses turn to gain
Feels like I’m drowning and can’t come up for air

-VERSE 2-
Feels like I’m never gonna get to where I wanna be
To reach a better place-to make a better me
Trying so hard to fly but my feet won’t leave the ground

-PRE-CHORUS-
-CHORUS-

When Will Things Change

-VERSE 1-
Turn up the music-and turn down the drama
Time to leave all your worries behind
Find that rock n roll state of mind
Turn up the music-save that drama for your mama

-PRE-CHORUS-
Turn it up, Crank it up-max that dial out
Turn it up, Crank it up-scream and shout

-CHORUS-
Turn it up to ten
Play it loud
Turn it up to ten
Play it oud
Seven will show you the stairways to heaven
But 10 will take you on the highway to hell
…turn it up to ten…turn it up loud

-VERSE 2-
Get your lazy ass outta bed
Wake the neighbors-wake the dead
From Dirty Deeds to Stranglehold
If they say it’s too loud-well they’re too old

Turn it Up to 10

-VERSE 1-
I gave you every opportunity-but you had to go and pick a fight
You wanna exercise your freedom of speech-well I guess that’s your right
But you chose the wrong dog to bark at-now you’re gonna feel its bite

-PRE-CHORUS-
Hindsight is always 20/20 but for you it’s a day too late

-CHORUS-
You should’ve known better
You should’ve walked away
You should’ve known better
That there would come the day
Where you would finally realize what you’d done
When you would finally cause me to come undone
You have unleashed the beast inside of me

-VERSE 2 –
You never learned when to back down-you thought it was all a game
Ignoring all the warnings-I guess you thought this was your claim to fame
You try to justify your actions and your words but you’re the one to blame

-PRE-CHORUS-
-CHORUS-

You Should've Known Better

-VERSE 1-
You were my everything-you were my healing rain
Whenever I was hurting-you took away my pain
But now that you’re gone and the blood has left your veins
The loneliness inside drives me insane

-CHORUS-
Crying in the rain-alone with my pain
Can you hear me? “Can you hear me?”
Can you hear me crying out “I love You”?
Can you hear as my heart breaks in two
Crying in the rain-alone with my pain
Can you hear me? “Can you hear me?”
Can hear me-as I call to you?

-VERSE 2-
They say that time heals all wounds but that’s a lie
They say it gets easier as time goes by
But every now and then it all comes crashing in and I start to cry
Why did you have to go without saying good-bye?
Why did you have to go?

Can You Hear Me?

-VERSE 1-
You were my guiding light in the sea of darkness
You were my everything
I never thought I could feel so much bliss
For you I would do anything

-PRE-CHORUS-
If only I knew then what I know now
I would have avoided you somehow


-CHORUS-
This ain’t a love song
Because the love was never there
This ain’t a love song
Because you never really cared
All of the love that was before my eyes
Was only the illusion created by your lies
This ain’t a love song
Because my heart is the only one that cries

-VERSE 2-
You don’t deserve any lyrics of love
After what you’ve done to me
You are no longer my angel sent from above
You buried my heart beneath six feet of gravity

-PRE-CHORUS-
-CHORUS-

This Ain't a Love Song

-VERSE 1-
What goes up must come down
Lately I feel as if I’m anchored to the ground
No matter how hard I try it’s the same everyday
The light at the end of the tunnel seems so far away


-CHORUS-
When will it end?
All the pain and the suffering
When will it end?
All the fighting and the struggling
When will all of this come to an end
When will all the good things start to begin
When will it end?

-VERSE 2-
They say all good things come to those who wait
ButI’ve been waiting a long time
I don’t wanna be a slave to this fate
But I can’t see the top to this mountain I must climb
-CHORUS-

When Will it End

-VERSE 1-
It’s like a roller coaster ride that’s only going down
Always feeling lost and never found
Trapped in a vicious cycle and I can’t break free
It’s a never-ending struggle for all eternity
-PRE-CHORUS-
I keep on fighting and I don’t know why
Feels like I’ll be fighting until the day I die
-CHORUS-
I’ve gotta find a way
To get out of here
I’ve gotta find a way
To break free
Everything here keeps dragging me down
I’ve gotta find a way….
To get out of this town

-VERSE 2-
Round for round always trying to knock me down
Trying to stand tall just to get kicked to the ground
Giving up could be done so easily
But fighting one day will hopefully break me free

-PRE-CHORUS-
-CHORUS-

Gotta Find a Way
