Track Name: Bigotry Asshole
Where is the love in this messed up world?
Corporations killing the innocent
A blanket covering the flowers
These racist pigs are ignorant
In this messed up world I still try to find my place

Where is the love in this messed up world?
Feeding off the verbal abuse
Treat me like a human being
The ones who've got no second chance
In this messed up world I still try to find my place

Well Mother there's still hope in this messed up world
The ones with their heads screwed on straight
Will rise up and make a stand
Extinguish the racist scums
In this messed up world i still try to find my place

Bigotry asshole
Bigotry asshole
Bigotry asshole
Bigotry asshole
Track Name: Looking Forward
Wake up it's another day
Just remember you can choose your own fate
The things that they say will fade
As long as you don't act like unformed clay
Think of all the things that you'll do
When their words aren't constantly choking you
Just ignore them and follow through
With all the things that you will eventually do

There will never be a better day or a better time
So go ahead do it now
Forget about the hate and all the lies
And just remember
You'll never be alone when all your friends
Are right beside you
We live in a world of fakes so just promise me that you won't be one

When the world comes crumbling down
Where will you be you'll just be sitting around
Crying loudly on the ground
Regretting all the things that you never done
Listen clearly do you hear that sound
That's the sound of turning your life around
Now that you have got a clue
Just be yourself and do what you want to do

You say you don't know I say you're gonna have to find out
You say you can't though but you're already halfway there
I don't know how I'll get through this
I don't know how I'll get through
Track Name: I'm Not a Punk
Velcro on a name tag upon everyone you see
Sorry I'm not perfect just like you
A secret mind to detonate on all of my beliefs
A close-minded hypocrite like you

I don't need a label of classification
Go smoke your brains out and curl up until you're dead
I'm as human as your egocentric self
A generation contradicting me

Let's go
A brainwashed state you fell through
You're never coming back until you're through
A brainwashed state you fell through
You're never coming back until
Track Name: Better Off Without You (I Hate You)
You're a mistake, one that I wish I never made
And now I can't believe that I tried so hard
To stop these changes that you made, you still try to get laid
We're through, break the tension, you need intervention

I'm glad that you aren't mine
You're just a waste of time

You did nothing good for me
It took a while but now I see
That I'm better off feeling sublimed, cause you tried to corrupt my mind
I got caught up in the breeze,
You manipulative tease
cause I'm nothing but a teenage boy and I'm not your dumb play toy

I erased the thought of you out of my brain
Cause now I can't stand you, you made a mark
On how I present myself and resent all the filth
That is living, contagious with habits outrageous

I'm glad I've finally seen
How much of a bitch you can truly be
This is all I can take
I'm leaving, you were just a mistake
No, this isn't a dream
I truly think you're a catastrophe
I'm rid of your bitter taste
I'm finally free, but your life's still a waste

(I wish I'd never met you
You're such a worthless whore
Now all my fears have come true
Get out now and shut the door)

God, I'm glad that you're not mine
But I promise that we'll both do just fine

You did nothing good for me
Took a while but now I'm free
I'm finally away from the crime, and now the whole world is mine
Now the grass is always green
And there's a whole new world to see
And now my life is perfection without your misdirection

Now I can finally say that
I hate you
Track Name: Emergency Forms
Waiting patiently to turn in our emergency forms
The room is filled with anxiety we wanna turn them in
One day she could pass out and she could die right on the floor
But I’ll be there for her cause I turned in my emergency forms

She knows I’m her savior and her friend
She knows I’m her savior and her friend
She knows I’m her savior and her friend
She knows I’m her savior and her friend

She ended up being OK breathing all school year long
Her hair so nice and skin so tight I want to be her friend
We talked one time and she was scared I thought she’d die right there
And if she did I could have saved her cause I turned in my forms

She knows I’m her savior and her friend
She knows I’m her savior and her friend
She knows I’m her savior and her friend
She knows I’m her savior and her friend
