Your Heaven is My Hell (Auto-Tuned Demo)
Verse 1:
I didnít even notice
You werenít still tailing me
Just thought that you should know this
Boy Ďcause this Iím promising

Chorus:
You wonít be my purpose
You wont be my daylight
My sun on a cloudy day
No more tears will fall down my face
No you will not define me
For I have broken out
Iím no longer in your cell
Now I will live without
Your heaven, aka my hell
Your heaven is my hell
Your heaven is my hell

Verse 2:
I didnít deserve that treatment
As if there were something wrong with me
But I couldnít control my feelings
I should have known there was no we

You wonít be my purpose
You wont be my daylight
My sun on a cloudy day
No more tears will fall down my face

Your heaven, aka my hell
Your heaven is my hell
Your heaven is my hell

Bridge:
Your heaven is my hell

Your heaven, aka my hell

Chorus:
You wonít be my purpose
You wont be my daylight
My sun on a cloudy day

Your heaven is my hell

You're Not Gonna Miss Me
Da da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da

Verse 1:
Well I told you how I felt
So I guess I just canít sell
Iím sad if you canít tell
My words should have made your heart melt
But my, my pleading it didnít help
So as this song begins to swell
I hope that you hear bells
And crawl out of your shell

Chorus (x2):
Ut-oh, Ut-oh, Ut-oh-oh-oh
Youíre not gonna miss me
Ut-oh, Ut-oh, Ut-oh-oh-oh
Youíll never think about me
Ut-oh, Ut-oh, Ut-oh-oh-oh
Youíll never even see me
Ut-oh, Ut-oh, Ut-oh-oh-oh
Youíre never gonna call me

Verse 2:
And well you know that I loved you so
And I think it really showed
And yet you left me in the cold
So that we couldnít ever grow
So I have got to go
though I know that means youíll never know
what more I could have brought to the fold
I guess my heart was far too bold

Chorus (x2):
Ut-oh, Ut-oh, Ut-oh-oh-oh
Youíre not gonna miss me
Ut-oh, Ut-oh, Ut-oh-oh-oh
Youíll never think about me

Paint
Verse 1:
Theyíre just incapable of seeing
Everything - When they tell me got-damn brad youíre so mean
So I donít take offense and Iím not running
They donít see all the parts that I edit
They fill-in the void with what they wanna see
Itís no surprise that Iím my own discredit

Chorus:
Paint
Paint me a new life
One where I am always fine
And where I never cry
And where I can feel free to be myself all the time

Where I donít have this obsessive need to hide
Paint me in a...

Verse 2:
Iím just incurably unable

String of Ends
Verse 1:
I bared my soul to you
When you didnít have things to do
Then I started to care for you too
Things were running along quite smooth
But you never planned to see it through
Then you showed me that attitude
And here I thought that we were cool
Leave it to me to play the sad love fool

Hook 1:
This canít be my life
Men always on the fence
How can this be right
This constant string of ends

Chorus:
Oh but it is
How do you fall asleep each night
Because itís sick
How nonchalantly you can be alright
And Iím the one who has to get
Myself these pills to medicate my mind
And you did this
And there you are feeling just fine

Verse 2:
Look what I continue to
Put myself through
And this so isnít new
I go through this with every dude
Each time I think weíre singing the same tune
I slowly figure out the truth
How many more time can I lose
Before I realize all men are noobs

Hook 2:
Story of my life
Men always play defense
Something isnít right
This constant string of ends

Chorus:
Oh but it is
How do you fall asleep each night
Because itís sick
How nonchalantly you can be alright
And Iím the one who has to get
Myself these pills to medicate my mind
And you did this
And there you are feeling just fine

Bridge:
I Shamelessly brand myself a hopeless romantic
Cause helplessly Iím high strung and oh so frantic
Try to play it cool but then I canít help that I panic
Blame it on my smooth, smooth life thatís so, so manic

Chorus:
Oh but it is
How do you fall asleep each night
Because itís sick
How nonchalantly you can be alright
And Iím the one who has to get
Myself these pills to medicate my mind
And you did this
And there you are feeling just fine

Chorus:
Oh but it is
How do you fall asleep each night
Because itís sick
How nonchalantly you can be alright
And Iím the one who has to get
Myself these pills to medicate my mind
And you did this
And there you are feeling just fine

Your Girlfriends
Verse 1:
At first I didnít even know he existed
And afterwards he was always so distant
So ya see I never even really knew him
Time spent together it was always so hectic
hurried or crowded yo not at all private
So the few words that were spoken had to be worth it
And whatíd I get?

Chorus:
Gay is sin
Bring over your girlfriends
anytime you wish
But I love you kid
Youíve got to stop moving
One day youíll run out of places to live
Iíve got a wife and kids
So no you canít move in
Thatís what he said

Verse 2:
At 35 I decided it was time
To reach out again to give he and I one more try
I should have known ďall or nothingĒ wouldnít fly
And I started to care for the guy mmm
Donít know why I freakiní even attempted
After hearing things like ďyouíre built like a womanĒ
I might have guessed I wouldnít be worth his time again
And that was just once

Chorus:
Gay is sin
Bring over your girlfriends
anytime you wish
But I love you kid
Youíve got to stop moving
One day youíll run out of places to live
Iíve got a wife and kids
So no you canít move in

Bridge:
Even now as I write this
Know always that to me youíre still worth it
And youíll always be flawfully perfect
I love you pops even thought right now Iím hurtin
But you canít call the shots and actually expect
Me to roll along with it like some folks have
You ainít a god man youíre just a man
So show your son some got-damn respect
I never knew you you were just some man
While you played house and became other kids dad
Got time run your mouth but ainít got time for Brad
What the fuck pops thatís just downright sad
And donít think Iím weak just cause I ask
For 5 fuckin minutes to spend with my old man
ďBut the girls donít need my attention like you doĒ
ďYeah but thatís cause they always fucking had youĒ

Chorus:
Gay is sin
Bring over your girlfriends
anytime you wish
But I love you kid
Youíve got to stop moving
One day youíll run out of places to live
Iíve got a wife and kids
So no you canít move in
Thatís what he saidÖ

Chorus:
Gay is sin
Bring over your girlfriends
anytime you wish
But I love you kid
Youíve got to stop moving
One day youíll run out of places to live
Iíve got a wife and kids
So no you canít move in

Teardrops Off the Floor
Verse 1:
I told you goodbye
Then wiped 3 teardrops off the floor
Then turned off my phone and began writing this song
Emotionally worn

Hook:
You donít have the heart for me
You donít have no room for me
You made it pretty clear to me
You didnít have the time for me

Chorus:
The kicker here is
You knew you were being an ass
While I thought you were just ignorant
And that would have been less bad

Verse 2: I figured youíd try
A little more this time around
To make this thing work between us but you havenít
Whyím I not surprised?

Hook:
You donít have the heart for me
You donít have no room for me
You made it pretty clear to me
You didnít have the time for me

Chorus:
The kicker here is
You knew you were being an ass
While I thought you were just ignorant
And that would have been less bad

Bridge:
Hey Brad itís your mean dad
I was pretty hard on you
I handled that bad
The way I spoke wasnít cool
And Iím sorry that
I had that attitude
And I promise not to have
another awful mood
when I speak to you again

Is that all Iím worth?
Is this your defense?
A couple pointless words?
voicemails are a.,.

Chorus:
The kicker here is
You knew you were being an ass
While I thought you were just ignorant
And that would have been less bad

Chorus:
The kicker here is
You knew you were being an ass
While I thought you were just ignorant
And that would have been less bad

Chorus:
The kicker here is

Worms in the Lake
Verse 1:
This was my last resort
You were only a phase
Now Iíll be slamming the door
Right in your bloody face
Iím throwing this can of worms


Right back in the lake
Tied to a brick with a letter that reads:

Chorus:
Goodbye to everything
That is you and me
Though barely anything
And now simply nothing
I wonít carry your name
Not while itís tainted with shame
Goodbye to everything
That is you and me
Though barely anything
And now simply nothing
I wonít carry your name
Not while itís
Not while itís tainted with shame

Verse 2:
You really broke my heart
With your loveless and empty eyes
Donít know how to love me with warmth
And I canít help you out this time
These issues are foreign to me
Dunno why I even tried
Itís neglectful and tiring
But now I have made up my mind
Iím throwing this can of worms
Right back in the lake
Tied to a brick with a letter that reads:

Chorus:
Goodbye to everything
That is you and me
Though barely anything
And now simply nothing
But I wonít carry your name
Not while itís tainted with shame
Goodbye to everything
That is you and me
Though barely anything
And now simply nothing
But I wonít carry your name
Not while itís
Not while itís tainted with shame

Bridge:
Thereís one way Iím different now

Matthew & Brandon
Matthew Verse:
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.

Matthew Hook:
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.

Brandon Verse:
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.

Brandon Hook:
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.

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

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

Alleged Victim
Verse 1:
Thereís not a thing you could say now
That would ever erase how
You made me feel down and out
(And then reveled while I was down)
My ambition might be unfound
But at least my soul is still unbound
Guys like you are still not allowed
(Though that doesnít stop them from coming around)

Hook:
I think I wanted love a little more than I wanted you
(In love I feared that you could never be - at least not with me and)
I think that a big part of me actually hated you too
(I think it was the idea that we lacked any sort of normalcy)

Chorus:
No need to surrender
Iím not coming for you
So go out on your bender
And get yourself a likeminded dude
Thereíll be no more needless pressure
Your depts are forgiven
Now go clear out your dresser
Youíre no longer my alleged victim

Verse 2:
Thereís not a whole lot of love left
When you split I became less
You left a hole deep in my chest
(And now my eyes are always wet)
And now my head is such a mess
Dunno why I never fled
Itís not like you and I ever wed
(guess I liked the pain that youíd inflict instead)

Hook:
I think I wanted love a little more than I wanted you
(In love I feared that you could never be - at least not with me and)
I think that a big part of me actually hated you too
(I think it was the idea that we lacked any sort of normalcy)

Chorus:
No need to surrender
Iím not coming for you
So go out on your bender
And get yourself a likeminded dude
Thereíll be no more needless pressure
Your depts are forgiven
Now go clear out your dresser
Youíre no longer my alleged victim

Bridge:
How did I live that whole time
With doubts of our life nearly every night
When inside I fought myself until I died
And all of my fears and self-loathing how are you the victim and not I?

Chorus (x2):
No need to surrender
Iím not coming for you
So go out on your bender
And get yourself a likeminded dude
Thereíll be no more needless pressure
Your depts are forgiven
Now go clear out your dresser
Youíre no longer my alleged victim

metamorphosis
Verse 1:
I know Iím not the first one to take this journey | and I wonít be the last
I only wish there was help for me | but there is no one or anything, alas

Hook 1:
And the fact is Iím already gone now
I'm not the man who once made you so proud
And although it's sad, trust you wonít want me around no more
'Cause it happens so fast

Chorus:
Don't remember me as all this
Remember me when I wasn't split
or being forced to dig this grave Iím in
or being forced into this metamorphosis
ďReminisce,Ē sure, but try not to ďmissĒ
Iím no longer ďhimĒ
Now Iím counterfeit
Thereís no escaping it
A bottomless pit
where no light omits
in metamorphosis

Verse 2:
I never did expect Iíd understand the final words of Tim
Iíd like to think I could handle it, but just look what it did to him

Hook 2:
And what sucks is Iím already half way there
As I write this, Iím glad you stay unaware
ĎCause Iíd die if I brought you into my nightmare
And it happens in a flash

Chorus (x2):
Don't remember me as all this
Remember me when I wasn't split
or being forced to dig this grave Iím in
or being forced into this metamorphosis
ďReminisce,Ē sure, but try not to ďmissĒ


Iím no longer ďhimĒ
Now Iím counterfeit
Thereís no escaping it
A bottomless pit
where no light omits
in metamorphosis

Chorus:
Don't remember me as all this
Remember me when I wasn't split
or being forced to dig this grave Iím in
or being forced into this metamorphosis
ďReminisce,Ē sure, but try not to ďmissĒ
Iím no longer ďhimĒ
Now Iím counterfeit
Thereís no escaping it
A bottomless pit
where no light omits
in metamorphosis

Bridge:
Traveling for a long, long time
Knowing that once I get there I will die
But I sail along
I sail alone
I sail along

Chorus:
Don't remember me as all this
Remember me when I wasn't split
or being forced to dig this grave Iím in
or being forced into this metamorphosis
ďReminisce,Ē sure, but try not to ďmissĒ
Iím no longer ďhimĒ
Now Iím counterfeit
Thereís no escaping it
A bottomless pit
where no light omits
in metamorphosis

Donít remember
Reminisce, sure

Chorus:
Don't remember me as all this
Remember me when I wasn't split
or being forced to dig this grave Iím in
or being forced into this metamorphosis
ďReminisce,Ē sure, but try not to ďmissĒ
Iím no longer ďhimĒ
Now Iím counterfeit
Thereís no escaping it
A bottomless pit
where no light omits
in metamorphosis

The Scale Tips
Verse 1:
I took you for granted
Assumed youíd be mine forever just to have
Kind of funny how it all happened
It was a fear of mine that outlasted

Hook 1:
The rational me (I hate myself)
The remorseful me (I hate myself)
From within I plead (I love myself)
But to no avail itís still bleak (I hate myself)

Chorus:
I watch as the scale tips
Dumbstruck
But I stay fastened in
And I donít get up
I hate that Iím fascinated
Think that Iíve lost touch
Maybe Iím emasculated
This is more than bad luck
Yes it is

Verse 2:
You saw but you didnít know
We fought cause I didnít know how to let you go

Hook 2:
What a waste of me (I hate myself)
Not an ounce of humanity (I hate myself)
No light left to see (I fear myself)
No good left of me (I loath myself)

Chorus:
I watch as the scale tips
Dumbstruck
But I stay fastened in
And I donít get up
I hate that Iím fascinated
Think that Iíve lost touch
Maybe Iím emasculated
This is more than bad luck
Yes it is
Iím done

Chorus:
I watch as the scale tips
Dumbstruck
But I stay fastened in
And I donít get up
I hate that Iím fascinated
Think that Iíve lost touch
Maybe Iím emasculated
This is more than bad luck
Yes it is
Iím done

Bridge:
How many days Ďtil Iím full-on unhinged
How many ways have I predicted this

Chorus:
I watch as the scale tips
Dumbstruck
But I stay fastened in
And I donít get up
I hate that Iím fascinated
Think that Iíve lost touch
Maybe Iím emasculated
This is more than bad luck
Yes it is
Iím done

Chorus:
I watch as the scale tips
Dumbstruck
But I stay fastened in
And I donít get up
I hate that Iím fascinated
Think that Iíve lost touch
Maybe Iím emasculated
This is more than bad luck
Yes it is
Iím done

What I Found
Verse 1:
It didnít happen when I was young
Yet they all seem to think that it does
It only happened when I grew the fuck up
This is what it looks like. Is this too much?

Hook 1:
So I shut off all the music and I just sat there in silence until the answers started to pour in. And boy did they pour.

Chorus:
And this is what I found
I found out why Iím all alone
Because no oneís ever made me whole
And Ďcause no oneís ever cared to know
And so this is what I found, bae
And why I now have to go
And what exactly made it so
And what turns somebodyís heart to stone

Verse 2:
I should be dead now I should be gone
Yet here I sit like Iím growing young
And every dayís like
ďIsnít it about time?
I put in enough right?Ē
Now Iím feeling outside

Hook 2:
You donít wanna know how
I went from most promising to blackout
Well join the fucking crowd
Iím thinking you wont like what I found out

Chorus:
ĎCause this is what I found
I found out why Iím all alone
Because no oneís ever made me whole
And Ďcause no oneís ever cared to know
And so this is what I found, bae
And why I now have to go
And what exactly made it so
And what turns somebodyís heart to stone

Chorus:
And this is what I found
I found out why Iím all alone
Because no oneís ever made me whole
And Ďcause no oneís ever cared to know
And so this is what I found, bae
And why I now have to go
And what exactly made it so
And what turns somebodyís heart to stone

Fem Boyfriend
Verse 1:
So many guys like Ďem rough
They say things like ďDonít want no womanĒ
You think that youíre manly but dude you still take it up the butt
Maybe spend less of your time with acting
You know, frontiní like youíre really manly
And ponder how to make your guy happy, instead
Thatís why I gots to have me

Chorus:
A fem boyfriend
Yes fem boyfriend
A guy with compassion
Wont you be my fem boyfriend
A guy who listens
My fem boyfriend
A guy who reasons
I want you as my boyfriend

Verse 2:
Why waste your time trying to act ďstraightĒ
When it isnĎt cute itís kind of annoying
Itís the cause of every headache guys like you and I have ever had
Feminine guys still have pecs
And biceps for miles on end
Every bit as much of a man
Only theyíre competent
Thatís why I gots to have me

Chorus:
A fem boyfriend
Yes fem boyfriend
A guy with compassion
Wont you be my fem boyfriend
A guy who listens
My fem boyfriend
A guy who reasons
I want you as my boyfriend
