Track Name: Don't Let Anyone
DON'T LET ANYONE

Don't let anyone tell you, you're not good enough

You're no good, you're no good, you're no good



Don't let anyone tell you, you're not good enough

You're no good, you're no good, you're no good



You are of what you're made it's cause of you I crave

Hasn't anyone ever told you, how beautiful you are



Your golden hair and your silver heels

When you fell asleep behind the wheel

And from that moment on

My heart you did steal away



Don't let anyone tell you, you're not good enough

You're no good, you're no good, you're no good
Track Name: Won't You Come out
WON'T YOU COME OUT

The Spring ends the Summer brings out the bees

And the birds are gathered in the trees

They all seem to shout



Won't you come out, won't you come out now

Won't you come out to play, with me today



There's no place I'd rather be than with you on my knee

On the dunes, hidden 'neath the grass

Down by the sea



Won't you come out, won't you come out now

Won't you come out to play, with me today



Come on and give me a try

You'll find out when and why

Won't you come out to play

There's no reason just a beautiful day



Won't you come out, won't you come out now

Won't you come out to play, with me today
Track Name: Use Your Head
USE YOUR HEAD

They say it is alright to fight, if you fight to win

And never give in

You better watch out

Or else you will never make it out of here



You paint such a pretty picture,

of what's going down It's for the people you say

And they lap it up only for you

To spit it out again



So use your head, don't lose your head

Don't be a fool



I disagree with the words you say

Fight and live another day is not the way

Whoever told you was having you on

Pulling your leg playing you for the fool



So use your head, don't lose your head

Don't be a fool
Track Name: It's Not Right
IT'S NOT RIGHT

You should never hold back what you are trying to say

Come forward, someone's got to pay



It's not right, but it's okay

It's not right, but it's okay



It's no use when you are gone, to keep holding on

To what you've got, when all you got is hurt



It's not right, but it's okay

It's not right, but it's okay



It's not right, but it's okay

It's not right, but it's okay
Track Name: Backseat of a Car
BACKSEAT OF A CAR

An angel with a dirty face

How long will it take for you

To fall from grace

To fall from grace



How many more times must I tell you

I must, I must

I must say no to you



You've been found out

Look who's looking scared

Exposed for who you really are

In the backseat of a car



How many more times must I tell you

I must, I must

I must say no to you



When you calm down

Won't you drop by and see me

You know the truth hurts and I could not tell you

I would not tell you



How many more times must I tell you

I must, I must

I must say no to you

How many more times must I tell you

I must, I must

I must say no to you
Track Name: Casino Pier
CASINO PIER

Who are you to say?
Fuck 'em all anyway
Who are you to judge?
When you cannot be judged



Who are you to send us here
To this halfway house?
It’s because
We make you feel down



All the money that you made
Is no good
You can’t take it to your grave
It’s your soul, it’s your soul
That can’t be saved
It’s too late.



Always taking
Never giving back
Hey man!
Won’t you please get off my back



What would i do
If i got a hold of you?
I’d make you pay
for all the shit you threw my way



All the money that you made
Is no good
You can’t take it to your grave
It’s your soul, it’s your soul
That can’t be saved
It’s too late.



If they're gonna pull you down?
If they're gonna drag you around?
Don't let it happen to you
It's already happened me



Who are you to send us here
To casino pier?
Track Name: Words Written
WORDS WRITTEN

It's an itch its a rash, it's a burn and it stings

But you can't wash it off

You're going to have to wait and see

You wait and see



You're the devil

You're the devil

You're the devil



There's a sense of joy when the pain goes away

But it's not going to last beyond tomorrow and a day

It's here to stay

It's here to stay



You're the devil

You're the devil

You're the devil



Is it all in my head? it can't be

The scratch marks on my skin

It pains me, it's gotten under my skin

It's inside of me



You're the devil

You're the devil

You're the devil
Track Name: Playground Love
PLAYGROUND LOVE

Don't you know that from the first time

That I saw you, I just had to have you near

To be around you, to befriend you,

To be all you want me to be but it's impossible

That's not how I'm made



I don't mind telling you that I am finding it hard

Not seeing you every day and every way

In every shape and form I'm missing you,

I'm missing you



You're my playground love

You're my playground love

That's what you mean to me



Long distance relationships were like sinking ships to me

Not worth a hope in Hell they were lost on me

Long distance relationships were like sinking ships to me

Not worth a hope in Hell, they were lost on me



You're my playground love

You're my playground love

That's what you mean to me
Track Name: One Day of the Year
ONE DAY OF THE YEAR

Come on in, the water is warm

Your back's on fire

We are not made for the sun

Our pink skin will burn



It's the one day of the year

It's the one day of the year

It's the one day of the year

We get to see the sun



Making sandcastles on the beach

And out of reach from the rising tide

The old and the young are here

Everyone except you my dear



It's the one day of the year

It's the one day of the year

It's the one day of the year

We get to see the sun
Track Name: September
SEPTEMBER

The crowded streets, the sirens wail

Here's to New York, New York

They drop, out of the sky

We stand and watch as these people die

All we can do is ask why

Why do they drop out of the sky?



September, I can't remember

Anything good about September



New York, New York brought down

On it's knees by some cruel plight

The brothers, they have fallen

These people are calling out for your head

Revenge is sweet you often repeat

But nothing you can do

Will bring those people back to you



September, I can't remember

Anything good about September
