OCEANS APART Oceans apart my heart has been split in two over you How I miss your smiling face and long to know your embrace oh it's true I need only you Dear Jesus today I pray let this girl see things my way Oh if she only know what I was willing to do I would walk a mile crack a smile or two Oceans apart my heart has been mended by you my true love How I see you pretty eyes and long to be by your side
TYPICAL DAY There was a girl who went to my school she treated me and my friends so cool Sometimes I don't know what to do I think there's something wrong I don't need her I don't love her I guess I just needed time to grow More time to grow... Her smile so bright so pure and clean I think she's using me indeed She goes to all my punk rock shows I think she's using me for my punk rock bro.'s Why god did this have to happen to me She turned out to be another stuck up yuppie When I come around she never looks down She stuck in her superficial world
SILENT CONTEMPLATION Why do I do what I do? Why can't I be just like you? But instead we go our separate ways and I count the days till you come back come back to me... Why can't I see you father? Why do I deceive only you? Why do I do what I do even though it hurts you? Why can't I see and believe in you? Believe in you... So now I've messed up once again You must be tired of holding my hand And still we go our separate ways and I count the days till you come back come back to me...
SHADED HEART Walking down this alley of life darkness surrounds my heart and soul as every inch of light disappears I know defeats drawing near Jesus shine your light on me show me what I'm supposed to be fill me with your holy spirit Jesus shine your light down on me The pressure in my heart starts to build tears fall from my eyes like rain you don't understand a thing I do God helps me see right through you God has touched my life and it's changed if you could only do the same I know your life would be gifted and your heavy heart would be lifted Jesus shine your light on me show me what I'm supposed to be fill me with your spirit Jesus shine your light on me
DADDY'S PILGRIM- Stop the violence stop all the hate why would you want to seal somebody's fate, our blood is red and are hearts beat the same so you hate me because of my last name. Cause your daddy's pilgrim your daddy's pilgrim yeah, your daddy's pilgrim yeah. your daddy was in the Ku Klux Klan so you follow his lead to prove your a man you make me sick with your rebel t-shirt you don't care about who you hurt.
HANDS TIED- Who's the aggressor and who is the taker with equal opportunity who is to ask her. Grab my hand and don't be afraid if I didn't like you I wouldn't have asked you to stay, look in my eyes now and what do you see hopefully understanding and some kind of need. So now I asked her it took all I had with fear in my heart I grabbed her hand.
RUNAWAY- Whatever happened, whatever happened to what used to be why my life ran out so fast so why then why did you leave and run away from me why did you leave when you knew why you were what I needed. I watch the car as it pulls away and wonder god why couldn't he stay but I guess it's easy said then done but why did you leave why did you leave and run away from me why did you leave god help me off of my knees. Time has run out...
JOHNNY- Johnny he came from a normal family or so it seemed but instead his parents didn't trust him and they didn't trust the world he never did what he was told. Johnny was only fifteen when he said I'd be better off dead with the gun in his mouth now he's gone his parents lost their only son. Johnny would skate all around his town till all the other punks would put him down they would push and they shove and they'd fight almost every single night. Johnny was only fifteen when he said I'd be better off dead with the gun in his mouth now he's gone his parents lost their only son. SO you ask why I write this song it's not like it's ever happened to me our anyone in my family but it's a travesty to our society.
NOW HEAR THIS- You're bitching drives me crazy Never ceases to amaze me I struggle to keep a straight face it would help if you weren't so selfish I never thought I'd say this but know you'll hear it I want out I want out. You say I'm no good and lazy then why do you bother to call me a wasted day another way I don't understand why I hold your hand
WASTED VACATION- I love the beach But the beach hates me Sometimes I wish I were Moses and could part the seas yeah The sun on the shoreline brightens my day but the sand in my shorts make me cry out in pain The muscle headed jocks and all the chicks make me sick when they laugh at me and my white legs they call sticks Surfboard in hand I'll stick with the punk rock fad I wish I had the moves and all the cool tattoos The sun on the shoreline brightens my day but the sand in my shorts make me cry out in pain The muscle headed jocks and all the chicks make me sick when they laugh at me and my white legs they call sticks I know I'm not a local but you're my focal point I don't have time for you or your bad attitude The sun on the shoreline brightens my day but the sand in my shorts make me cry out in pain The muscle headed jocks and all the chicks make me sick when they laugh at me and my white legs they call sticksLOST WITHOUT YOU- Sometimes I wonder what to do when I come face to face with you I get so scared and don't know what to do I think I might be falling for you Walking down the street you and me see how God intended us to be not going to a party or social gathering spend a little time with me and you'll see What God wants us to be I'm like a lost boy looking for the candy store but to me you mean so much more your the first person I want to see in the morning looking back at me Well now I guess it's time to go but I hope to see you at our next show but I still want you to know I see you I need you my heart bleeds for you only you Walking down the street you and me see how god wants us to be not going to a party or social gathering spend a little time with me and you'll see what God plans for you and me
