Track Name: Craving Light
I could've stayed, i could've gone those were the choices at hand
the ones they gave were not the things that i had had in my plans
I wanted out, I wanted in, but no one in this world could give me what I want, woah
don't you miss me when I'm gone from here
don't you doubt these words, so loud and clear
'cause I'm so sick of this, this place so full of shit
don't you miss me when I'm gone
I guess everything didn't come out as I'd wanted it to
but we're still here, we're still alive, and we've got tons of shit to do
I stumbled out of this dark room just to break away and find the light i crave, woah
don't you miss me when I'm gone from here
don't you doubt these words, so loud and clear
'cause I'm so sick of this, this place so full of shit
don't you miss me when I'm gone
Track Name: Bogues and Hoes
Forget the lies of tomorrow, Live for the truth of today
Because I can't tell you who to follow but i can lead the way
And sometimes I would say
You are better than this,
but I was just lying right to your face

And I don't care if you're okay
I hope that you're not
And I hope that you'll realize
you were always wrong

But until then I'll watch from a distance
as you waste away your worthless existence

Remember when you were in the hospital?
And no one but me gave a shit at all
I watched you climb to the top
And now I'll see you fall
Track Name: Only Posers Fall in Love
If I were put on trial today, would you pray for me? and would you ask for someone out there to help me? 'cause you're the girl I've sat awake and thought of every night and you're my, you're my one last reason to stand and fight, woah
are you okay?
oh, I'm just fine
I think we should just utilize this time
And when you go, I'll want to cry
'cause I don't ever want to say goodbye
when you're here and mine
and if I were put away today would you cry for me? and if I, if I left the country would you come with me? 'cause behind iron bars I'd miss this so much I could not fill this space. let's just be glad today, today that's not the case, woah
are you okay?
oh, I'm just fine
I think we should just utilize this time
And when you go, I'll want to cry
'cause I don't ever want to say goodbye
when you're here and mine
yeah I'm okay, I'm not just fine
no don't waste this we've got no time
time to say goodbye
are you okay?
oh, I'm just fine
I think we should just utilize this time
And when you go, I'll want to cry
'cause I don't ever want to say goodbye
when you're here and mine
Track Name: Best Friend
his veins, so full of THC and alcohol, enough to kill me
h'ell never get to know a normal life
his parents smoking crack in his backyard, h'es full of chains and iron bars, and life is really getting very hard

well, the alcohol came after pot soon coke will fill his nose with snot
that shit is really getting hard to find
cheer up, best friend, listen to me, this isn't how you want to be
just put it all down, maybe you will see

so don't get mad at me don't get me wrong
my best friend, just listen to this song

my best friend spent his money to get high
he didnt want to be like other guys
so in all his anger and his strife, he took a big bite out of life and
my best friend gave me money to get high, woah no
Track Name: Joey
Hey there Joey
How have you been?
Its been years since my last visit
Did you ever make it to heaven?
I really hope you did
because it must get lonely in that field where you reside
In that wooden box surrounded by earth and grass on all sides

I couldn't look you in the face
to see you so lifeless
Without tears rolling down my own
and the pictures ignited feeling of regret
that i couldn't see your face alive and well before your final day

I don't know where you're going
But I know you left your mark
(on us all)
We will remember
(on us all)
we won't forget
On us all we won't forget you Joey, no

What god would take you from here?
What kind of god would take you

What god would take you from here?
