You're Supposed To
Verse 1:
Sorry I canít hang out today
Todayís a family day
Well what do you consider me
Last I know we were family

Link 1:
Sorry you must have a lot on your mind
Trying not to get caught in lies
Damn it Iíve gotta stop prying
Give you time to recite

Hook:
Maybe we took too long apart
To ever get back to a fresh start
But one things for sure
You were never my hero
Like youíre supposed to be

Chorus:
Youíre supposed to save me from guys like you
Youíre supposed to shield me from the hatred they spew
Youíre supposed to fight for me when I lose
Youíre supposed to guide me through the darkness too
Youíre supposed to save me from guys like you
Youíre supposed to shield me from the hatred they spew
Youíre supposed to fight for me when I lose
Youíre supposed to guide me through

Verse 2:
What the fuck can I say
I didnít matter to you anyway
What am I supposed to think
When you didnít give me the time of day

Link 2:
Iíve got so much on my mind
Sorry for wasting your time
Maybe if I had a dime
Youíd have had a look twice

Hook:
Maybe we took too long apart
To ever get back to a fresh start
But one things for sure
You were never my hero
Like youíre supposed to be

Chorus:
Youíre supposed to save me from guys like you
Youíre supposed to shield me from the hatred they spew
Youíre supposed to fight for me when I lose
Youíre supposed to guide me through the darkness too
Youíre supposed to save me from guys like you
Youíre supposed to shield me from the hatred they spew
Youíre supposed to fight for me when I lose
Youíre supposed to guide me through

Bridge:
Not what youíre supposed to be
Not what youíre supposed to be no
Not what youíre supposed to be
Not what youíre supposed to be
Not what youíre supposed to be
Not what youíre supposed to be no
Not what youíre supposed to be oh
Not what youíre supposed to be
Youíre supposed to save me
Youíre supposed to shield me
Youíre supposed to fight for me
Youíre supposed to guide me through
Youíre supposed to save me
Youíre supposed to shield me
Youíre supposed to fight for me
Youíre supposed to guide me through
Not what youíre supposed to be
How youíre supposed to be
Not what youíre supposed to be
How youíre supposed to be
Not what youíre supposed to be
How youíre supposed to be
Not what youíre supposed to be
How youíre supposed to be

Chorus:
Youíre supposed to save me from guys like you
Youíre supposed to shield me from the hatred they spew
Youíre supposed to fight for me when I lose
Youíre supposed to guide me through the darkness too
Youíre supposed to save me from guys like you
Youíre supposed to shield me from the hatred they spew
Youíre supposed to fight for me when I lose
Youíre supposed to guide me through

Mother's Mistake
Verse 1:
ďWoe is meĒ is my sacred place
Instinctively I run there where I feel safe
And Iím there now Yes Iím here now
I let you go but Iím not alone
Iíll never want you back so you can just let go
I think itís safe to say I didnít need you anyway

Chorus:
My mother may have made you her mistake
But it doesnít mean that I will do the same thing
When you call yourself ďdumbĒ thatís just you being safe
So when you lie you can more easily explain

Verse 2:
Explain to me how your logic works
When you say powerful things then claim theyíre just words
How could I let them hurt when Iíve already learned
The things you say no longer work on me
So please keep your voice off of my machine
And just let me go Turn around and just go home

Chorus:
My mother may have made you her mistake
But it doesnít mean that I will do the same thing
When you call yourself ďdumbĒ thatís just you being safe
So when you lie you can more easily explain

Bridge:
I never asked you for a dime
All I asked you for was your time
But it seems that you have made up your mind
A long time ago when you left me behind
ĎTil I showed up offering you one final try
And you stringed me along Ďtil you could decide
Whether Iíd be a worthy part of your life
Well father am I?

Chorus:
My mother may have made you her mistake
But it doesnít mean that I will do the same thing
When you call yourself ďdumbĒ thatís just you being safe
So when you lie you can more easily explain

Chorus:
My mother may have made you her mistake
But it doesnít mean that I will do the same thing
When you call yourself ďdumbĒ thatís just you being safe
So when you lie you can more easily explain

Chorus:
My mother may have made you her mistake
But it doesnít mean that I will do the same thing
When you call yourself ďdumbĒ thatís just you being safe
So when you lie you can more easily explain

Pedestalized
Verse 1:
Growing up, she was my idol
She couldnít do anything wrong
But Iím older now and I see things more clearly
Though she wasnít as dirty as they come

Hook 1:
She wasnít perfect at all
And oh boy was she flawed
But I still love her so much
Sheís always there when I call

Chorus:
Every child should have this type of blindness
For the ones that they love so that they donít ever forget it

Verse 2:
All grown up, I have a daughter
Itís like together we grow up
Whoíd have known Iíd be a father
When Iím about as homo as they come

Hook 2:
Iím not perfect at all

But I donít teach my flaws
And I love her so much
Iím always there when she calls

Chorus:
Every child should have this type of blindness
For the ones that they love so that they donít ever forget it

Chorus:
Every child should have this type of blindness
For the ones that they love so that they donít ever forget it

Bridge:
In a world full of negativity
Tell me, whatís wrong with throwing out a little positivity?
Yeah, why point out everybodyís flaws
When thatís not love?

Chorus:
Every child should have this type of blindness
For the ones that they love so that they donít ever forget it

Chorus:
Every child should have this type of blindness
For the ones that they love so that they donít ever forget it

My Dark Side (Segue)
I've Surrendered to my dark side.
I don't want to be here.

It's Not Fair
Verse 1:
Here you come again
I thought I locked you out
I latched my locks up when I saw you around
Must have been unprepared
Or I didnít see you this time

Chorus:
Well itís not fair
That itís you there
Youíve broken in
Penetrated my protection
And itís not fair

Verse 2:
Beat myself up Ďcause of you
Every day and night
I visit you and your kind every night in my mind
Iíve been so undisturbed
Up until now that is

Chorus:
Well itís not fair
That itís you there
Youíve broken in
Penetrated my protection
And itís not fair

Bridge:
Why did I drive myself through a detour
And get swept up in your misleading allure
When a deflated heart is all Iíd procure

Chorus:
Well itís not fair
That itís you there
Youíve broken in
Penetrated my protection
And itís not fair

Chorus:
Well itís not fair
That itís you there
Youíve broken in
Penetrated my protection
And itís not fair

The Way I See It
Verse 1:
The way I see it you never cared
The way I see it you werenít really there
I get the feeling you grew tired long ago
And just held on Ďcause you didnít have any other place to go
The way I see it you thought not of my welfare

Chorus:
I was in love at you Ďcause you were not in love
(You were not in love, you were not in love)
I stood by you so long but I wasnít enough
(No I was not enough, no I was not enough)

Verse 2:
The way I see it Iím not done healing yet
The way I see it Iíve lost my faith in men
I donít think Iíll ever trust another guy
And itís so sad Ďcause that thought used to make me wanna cry
The way I see it Iím just not sure that I can

Chorus:
I was in love at you Ďcause you were not in love
(You were not in love, you were not in love)
I stood by you so long but I wasnít enough
(No I was not enough, no I was not enough)
I was in love at you Ďcause you were not in love
I stood by you so long but I wasnít enough

Chorus:
I was in love at you Ďcause you were not in love
(You were not in love, you were not in love)
I stood by you so long but I wasnít enough
(No I was not enough, no I was not enough)

Crossed a Line
Verse 1:
I canít believe it took me 6 whole years
to get over something that only lasted 4
The up and down ride was so torturous
I shouldnít even be mentioning it all anymore

Hook 1:
ĎCause you were so unkind
You were so unwise
Your heart was not mine
Your words were a lie
What a waste of my time
Even though now Iím fine
And I no longer cry
You still crossed a line

Chorus 1:
I donít want you and I
In every song I write
Or in every single guy
Just because heís Joey like
I donít need you and I
On every thing I type
All the fucking time

Verse 2:
Our ways of life were so opposite
we had no business lighting them up like playing with fuel
The shit you would spew was so ugly
and only cemented my feelings of 'ill' Ďbout you

Hook 2:
ĎCause you were a meany
You were so deadly
Didnít think of my needs
Didnít know how to think ďweĒ
All you did was smoke weed
And go out and cheat on me
Whyíd it take so long to see
You and I ending

Chorus 1:
I donít want you and I
In every song I write
Or in every single guy
Just because heís Joey like
I donít need you and I
On every thing I type
All the fucking time

Bridge:
A line was crossed again
again, again, again, and again
And you canít come back from that
You canít, you canít, you canít, you canít

Chorus 2:
I donít want you and I
In every song I write
Or in every single guy
Just because heís Joey like
I donít need you and I
On every thing I type
All the fucking time
For the duration of my life

Chorus 2:
I donít want you and I
In every song I write
Or in every single guy
Just because heís Joey like
I donít need you and I
On every thing I type
All the fucking time
For the duration of my life

Your Ugly (Segue)
I can see your ugly | You're a wretched human-being
Old age has made you dirty | Far too flirty with the teens
Not that it's appealing | When you sex-talk everyone
Pressuring them to suck you | Under the ruse "fun"
There's nothing "fun" about it | Sexual-intercourse
Being talked about casually | With no seeming remorse

Pulsating Hope (Give 'em Hope 12)
Verse 1:
Hate
It happens every day in every nation
But love
Also happens every day in many ways and

Hook 1:
One doesnít cancel the other out


Itís times like this where I just wanna pout
And it tends to make me lose myself

Chorus:
Everythingíll be okay
Itís gonna get better
Youíve gotta believe it
Youíve gotta see
Every day wont be the same
Itís gonna get brighter
Youíve just gotta trust it
And then youíll believe

Verse 2:
Fear
It dwells in everyone across planet
And tears
They arenít only caused by things like death and sadness

Hook 2:
ďJoyĒ is one thing that comes to my mind
And itís sad that itís not that all the time
Like at Pulse we were forced to say goodbye
So, so long youíll be remembered

Chorus:
Everythingíll be okay
Itís gonna get better
Youíve gotta believe it
Youíve gotta see
Every day wont be the same
Itís gonna get brighter
Youíve just gotta trust it
And then youíll believe

Bridge:
Tragedy strikes again
And it hit close to home, this, Iím in
And I wonder will it ever end
Religiously-driven, hate-filled violence

Chorus:
Everythingíll be okay
Itís gonna get better
Youíve gotta believe it
Youíve gotta see
Every day wont be the same
Itís gonna get brighter
Youíve just gotta trust it
And then youíll believe

Chorus:
Everythingíll be okay
Itís gonna get better
Youíve gotta believe it
Youíve gotta see
Every day wont be the same
Itís gonna get brighter
Youíve just gotta trust it
And then youíll believe

Chorus:
Everythingíll be okay
Itís gonna get better
Youíve gotta believe it
Youíve gotta see
Every day wont be the same
Itís gonna get brighter
Youíve just gotta trust it
And then youíll believe

Matthew & Brandon (Give 'em Hope 13)
Verse 1:
His name was Matthew.
Perhaps you knew him.
Heíd have his head down as he passed you,
on his way to Economics.
Heíd receive swirlies in the bathroom,
while you and your girl made out in empty classrooms.
And heíd stand frozen like a statue,
as peers cut him in line in the lunch room.

Hook 1:
And although his life was cut too short, one night on a fence,
his spirit, it still soars. A sort of means to an end.

Matthew Chorus:
Although heís gone,
heís not forgotten.
He still lives on.
Little bit of him in all of us.
Part of the cog,
that we call evolution.
And look how far weíve come.
ĎCause guys like Matt gave their lives for the cause.
Guys like Matt give us hope; Make us strong.
So guys like Matt live on through this song.
Guys like Matt, they are not whatís wrong.
Itís Guys like Matt who taught us to love.

Verse 2:
His name was Brandon,
but he was born as Teena.
He grew up in a trailer out in Nebraska,
and attended a small-minded, religious institution,
where the staff and students, theyíd all make such fun of him.
Turned away by Army for checking ďmaleĒ on his application.
And his filthy mother was -and still is- a bigot,
who lacks an education in trans-gender relations.

Hook 2:
And although his life was cut too short, one night, after his rape,
his spirit it still soars. I know heíd love how much weíve changed.

(Message to...) [Sue me, bitch!]

Brandon Chorus:
Although heís gone,
heís not forgotten.
He still lives on.
A little bit of him in all of us.
Part of the cog,
that we call evolution.
And look how far weíve come.
ĎCause guys like Brandon gave their lives for the cause.
Guys like Brandon give us hope; Make us strong.
So guys like Brandon live on through this song.
Guys like Brandon, they are not whatís wrong.
Itís Guys like Brandon who taught us to love.

Bridge:
And itís so nice to know that
whenever we look back theyíll always be there.
Still, sad though, that in a world where weíve come so far
theyíre not here, though theyíre in our hearts.
So weíll just have to let them know when we see them in heaven.

Their Chorus:
Although theyíre gone,
theyíre not forgotten.
They still live on.
Little bit of them in all of us.
Part of the cog,
that we call evolution.
And look how far weíve come.
ĎCause guys like them gave their lives for the cause.

Link:
Give Ďem hope.
Give Ďem hope, yeah!
Give Ďem hope.
Give Ďem hope, yeah!
Give Ďem hope.
Give Ďem hope, yeah!
Give Ďem hope.
Give Ďem hope, yeah!

Their Chorus:
Although theyíre gone,
theyíre not forgotten.
They still live on.
Little bit of them in all of us.
Part of the cog,
that we call evolution.
And look how far weíve come.
ĎCause guys like them gave their lives for the cause.

The End:
Guys like Brandon give us hope; Make us strong.
So guys like Matt live on through this song.
Guys like Brandon, they are not whatís wrong.
Itís Guys like Matt who taught us to love.
