Balladry Lyrics

 

FREAKIN' OUT

I am strong inside and out,
but when things go wrong my insides come out
every once in a while things get like this,
every once in a while...

((chorus))
(laying face up) everything is spinning around
(when you stand up) nothing wants to stay down
(would you give up) I dont know man, but I know I'm
freakin' out

hold me down when this comes back,
I'm giving myself a heart attack
kiss myself goodbye until i learn to fight,
kiss myself goodbye because...

((chorus))
(laying face up) everything is spinning around
(when you stand up) nothing wants to stay down
(would you give up) I dont know man, but I know I'm
freakin' out

((bridge))

can't this all come together,
before it falls apart
((end chorus))

 

BEG FOR CHANGE

I became so poor I'd auction off more than I owned anyday
and I felt my cheeks go red, but I had to ask anyway

I begged for change and
prayed there was hope left yet

I begged for change and
I held out my hands
we're failing and fading

I became so slight, I betrayed the secrets that kept me alive, don't let me die
I see through archaic eyes, but I have to ask anyway

I begged for change and
prayed there was hope left yet

I begged for change and
I held out my hands
we're failing and fading

 

LONER

arm is in a cast again from dragging you
you don't weigh much but I'm fragile
I won't pull another muscle until I heal
and i'm thinking about leaving

but you send flowers all the time

I'm one of a kind, and I'm dying, when I'm trying to love
I'm one of a kind, and I'm dying, when I'm trying, I'm trying to love

talking to a wall again is sounding good
you're a crowded room of leaches
looking for a reason to be alone
but there's no door to escape from

but you send flowers all the time
I'm one of a kind, and I'm dying, when I'm trying to love
I'm one of a kind, and I'm dying, when I'm trying, I'm trying to love

 

BEST FRIEND

look at the clouds defend my eyes, I can't see through them
caught in a mist now for some time, hard to get through it
your faith in me is like the sun, somehow it lights the way
and I'm praying...

this will make us stronger, hope this lasts much longer
dark will make this lighter

black as the whitest boldfaced lie, could not resist it
nobody saw how hard you cried, and tried to get through it
your faith in me is like the sun, somehow it lights the way
and I'm praying...

this will make us stronger, hope this lasts much longer
dark will make this lighter
you were right, and now I drown from internal bleeding
you were right, and now I drown, it's eternal

 

MERCY ME

this isn't the way it's meant to be
emotions got tangled together
the feeling was new, it set me free
but life with regret is forever

took it all for granted
but it's hard to go back again

oceans of words turned into leaves
falling and spreading the rumor
I 've severed the end despite the means
they're hinting that we have no future

took it all for granted
and I want to go back again
now you look so stranded
can't get you out of my head

this isn't the way it's meant to be
you weren't supposed to be without me
it's what we lacked that set us free
forgive, show mercy

took it all for granted
and I want to go back again
now you look so stranded
can't get you out of my head

mercy me
release me from my balladry
so I can put these words to bed

 

BRAVE
featuring Billy Martin of Good Charlotte

we live in holes, afraid to breathe
well throw me to the wolves and...

((chorus))
wish me luck, i'm gonna need it
wish me luck, until i feel brave
wish me luck, i wanna feel it
wish me luck, until i feel brave

it feels like rain, fools rush in, secure
throw me to the cold and...

((chorus))
wish me luck, i'm gonna need it
wish me luck, until i feel brave
wish me luck, i wanna feel it
wish me luck, until i feel brave

((final chorus))

 

MUTANT

please save me, the sight of me is the saddest thing around, and it slows me down,
drag my feet to someone's beat,
I'm not even marching,
this parade hates dead weight
where should I go?

don't my friends look real? Don't my friends seem real?
the saddest thing around looks better when you're down,
looking through the right eye,
the saddest thing I see, starring back at me,

lost in town the lights go down, I'm the next worst fashion,
kids at best couldn't care less,
where should I go?

don't my friends look real? Don't my friends seem real?
the saddest thing around looks better when you're down,
looking through the right eye,
the saddest thing I see, starring back at me,
looking through the right eye,

right eye, beauty comes from inside,
born to keep me alive,

the saddest thing around looks better when you're down,
looking through the right eye,
the saddest thing I see, starring back at me,
looking through the right eye

 

DEAD TO THE WORLD

(they didnt know I was alive then)
(you didnt know i was alive then)

it's out of the blue, I noticed you
i went through old photos and instantly knew
crawl back is cool, and we could be so hot

they didnt know I was alive then,
they didnt know me when I knew them
you didnt know I was alive then
and now you tell yourself that...

it's out of the blue, I'm calling you
i just needed somone to talk to, and get me through
stay tried and true, even though I'm not

it's all in the past, you grew up fast
you wanted to know in the first place, if you'd end up last
but you need me instead, well I'm still dead

they didnt know I was alive then,
they didnt know me when I knew them
you didnt know I was alive then
and now you tell yourself that we'll be friends
you didnt know i was alive then
and now you tell yourself that

a boomerang is what you threw
and soon it will come back to you
when all your plans dont follow through
and it hits you in the back

 

STAND IN THE ROAD

still in a jam, look at you
moving on involves stimulation
and forcing you to leave hurts me too, telling you to move

stand in the road, I cant make you move
it makes it hard, hard to fill your shoes

if traffic were low, would you stay
staring at the highway
go and see the world, because you
because you've moved

stand in the road, I can't make you move
it makes it hard, hard to fill your shoes
cant find the ocean drowning in your pool
stand in the road, I can't make you move

 

HOLD ME BACK

forces of evil clash with good and I feel
like I should do something for someone, but I fail
cause we can't take on the world, but if the world comes to us
and they want to make this personal, then we will

there've been times, when you should hold me back
now's not the time to hold me back again

this is not the time, to hold me back again
this is not the time
this is not the time, don't hold me back again

now for the first time I feel hunted, as I should
and yet I've never been so hungry, like the wolf
you went straight for the heart, tore mine apart, now it changes everything
you want to make this personal, well we will

there've been times, when you should hold me back
now's not the time to hold me back again

this is not the time, to hold me back again
this is not the time
this is not the time, don't hold me back again

 

DRAMA QUEEN

restless, falling apart, and breathing through toothaches
breaking down from the start
won't stop holding on

she drowned in a wave out of fear of a falling sun
pulled her hair, one by one

a thousand queens could tell you, don't fall for a king
there's too much too live up to, know your self esteem
a thousand queens will warn you, don't live for a dream
but who do you look up to?

floating on 9 1/2, while choking on stardust
blaming all things above
won't stop holding on

she drowned in a wave out of fear of a falling sun
told herself he's the one

a thousand queens could tell you, don't fall for a king
there's too much too live up to, know your self esteem
a thousand queens will warn you, don't live for a dream
but who do you look up to?

"honey I love you too much, and i feel so afraid
and I need you, like war on peaceful days"
