A Day To Remember

Homesick tracks

Lyrics

1. THE DOWNFALL OF US ALL

Da da da de da da da
Da da da de da da da
Let's go

It's not easy making a name for yourself
Where do you draw the line?
I never thought id be in this far
Have fun some and never change that for anyone
Try not to miss me when i'm gone

Oooh

I sold my soul to the open road
You'll find me in the same spot believe me
I could never stop, my life's turned upside down

Meet me out past the train tracks i'm leavin' and not coming back

You're right and i was wrong
This town will be the downfall of us all.

I'm gonna need you to try to follow along
I did the best that i could to try to write you songs

Now go tell them we sold out

I sold my soul to the open road
You'll find me in the same spot believe me
I could never stop, my life's turned upside down

Meet me out past the train tracks i'm leavin' and not coming back

You're right and i was wrong
This town will be the downfall of us all.

Don't forget yourselves we've made up our minds
We signed 3, 4, 5 on the dotted lines (x2)

You'll find me in the same spot believe me
I could never stop, my life's turned upside down
Meet me out past the train tracks i'm leavin' and not coming back
You're right and i was wrong




You'll find me in the same spot believe me
I could never stop, my life's turned upside down

Meet me out past the train tracks i'm leavin' and not coming back

You're right and i was wrong
This town will be the downfall of us all, this town will be the downfall of us all.

Downfall of us all (x4)




2. MY LIFE FOR HIRE

Somebody give a sign, that everything's going as planned,
And then everything falls away, into the darkness of this shallow place.
The detail is striking.
The rooms cold and frightening.
You'll kick and you'll scream, you'll try everything to survive.
But you should know your fate by now.

[Bridge:]
They told me, how i should be, but I broke the mold somehow.
[chant]

[Chorus:]
It's too late, too late.You keep trying to resolve the past right now. But I sweare I'll be the one, to let the world know what you've done to me.

You, you know ya' gotta assert yourself, leave what you need for now.
It's not the time or place you're searching for.

All i can give them is my worst of intentions.
You're nothing to me, and everyone can see that your life's a lie.
There's no where left to hide.

[Bridge:]

Chorus (2x)

Watch your back, you'll lose yourself.
This is a battleground!
When will they know!

Your lifes a lie...

Chorus(2x)

[Bridge:]




3. I'M MADE OF WAX, LARRY, WHAT ARE YOU MADE OF?

Don't blink,
They won't even miss you at all
And don't think,
That i'll always be gone

You know i've got you,
Like a puppet in the palm of my hand,
Don't you let me down

So run like hell,
Sleep with one eye open
You can forgive or forget
You will tell everyone the damage done
Too bad you can't stop me
You can't stop me now

I'll be there just to watch you fall
So don't push me,
I've got nothing to lose

Don't blink,
They won't even miss you at all
And don't think,
That i'll always be gone

You know i've got you
Like a puppet in the palm of my hand,
Don't you let me down

There i go again,
I mean its so damn hard
To come back from the mess that you've made
*something* i told you so
Your a snake and i confess
Just use your head

I'll be there just to watch you fall
So don't push me,
I've got nothing to lose

Don't blink,
They won't even miss you at all
And don't think,
That i'll always be gone

You know i've got you
Like a puppet in the palm of my hand,
Don't you let me down

Come on

Oooooooooooohhh

*ahem*

Everybody's out to get me
Any moment could be my last
This is it,
You can take it or leave it
Will you run? I will stand on my own two feet

Just breathe

Just breaathhe (x2)

Don't blink,
They won't even miss you at all
And don't think that i'll always be gone
You know i've got you
Like a puppet in the palmo of my hand,
Don't you let me down

Oh




4. NJ LEGION ICED TEA

Get up, get out,
This is your wake up call,
We run this town and you can fight us all,
We keep on coming back for more,
And don't think you can hold us down,
We'll tear this building down,
Try to be careful what you say

Give it up, your tact is astounding,
Find your place and leave us with some peace of mind,
You do this every time

So here's to another better year,
We've crossed that thin line,
Don't try to hold us here,
If for just this once you'd think of us,
I hope you're happy with yourself,

Get up, get out,
Who's gonna break our fall,
When we don't back down, they're gonna seem so small,
We keep em running for the door,

Just when things will come back around,
It's too late for them, they're heading straight for a meltdown,
I'm not a part of your cliché,

Give it up, your tact is astounding,
Find your place and leave us with some peace of mind,
You do this every time

So here's to another better year,
We've crossed that thin line,
Don't try to hold us here,
And if for just this once you'd think of us,
I hope you're happy with yourself,
[x2]

Just think about, just think about everything,
Be careful now, be careful what you say,
Run away

This is the life we show, this is the life i lead,
They can never take this from me
[x2]

So here's to another better year,
We've crossed that thin light don't try to hold us here,
And for just this once you'd think of us,
I hope you're happy with yourself,
[x2]

So here's to another better year,
I hope you're happy with yourself.




5. MR. HIGHWAY'S THINKING ABOUT THE END

Wake up!!!!

Oh how the times have changed
Your not the person i knew back then
Lets get this straight
This is a calling where fist are flying
You lack of inspiration

Where not the same
I'll do whatever it takes
To get it through to you
When you come here today
Where not the same ?

It's like speaking gets tough
To all of you now
Will we ever get what we deserve
How long till the tables turn
Will we ever get what we deserve

I've created a monster
It's a side of me that
No one should see
So quit stalling
Cuz your backs keep walking away
Your likeness to destruction

Where not the same
I just won't sit back and
Let you take this from me
Where not the same
When i have giving everything

It's like speaking gets tough
To all of you now
Will we ever get what we deserve
How long till the tables turn
Will we ever get what we deserve

Disrespect your surrounding

You won't make it out alive [x4]

It's like speaking gets tough
To all of you now
Will we ever get what we deserve
How long till the tables turn
Will we ever get what we deserve




6. HAVE FAITH IN ME

Have faith in me
Cause there are things that i've seen i don't believe
So cling to what you know and never let go
You should know things aren't always what they seem

I said i'd never let you go, and i never did
I said i'd never let you fall and i always meant it
If you didn't have this chance then i never did
You'll always find me right there, again

I've gone crazy
Cause there are things in the streets i don't believe
So we'll pretend it's alright and stay in for the night
What a world
I'll keep you safe here with me

I said i'd never let you go, and i never did
I said i'd never let you fall and i always meant it
If you didn't have this chance then i never did
You'll always find me right there, again

I said i'd never let you go, and i never did
I said i'd never let you fall and i always meant it
If you didn't have this chance then i never did
You'll always find me right there, again

They've got me on the outside, looking in
But i can't see at all
With the weight of the world on my shoulders,
They just wanna see me fall

They've got me on the outside, looking in
But i can't see at all
With the weight of the world on my shoulders,
They just wanna see me fall

Have faith in me

I said i'd never let you go, and i never did
I said i'd never let you fall and i always meant it
If you didn't have this chance then i never did
You'll always find me right there, again

I said i'd never let you go, and i never did
I said i'd never let you fall and i always meant it
If you didn't have this chance then i never did
You'll always find me right there, again

I said i'd never let you go, and i never did
I said i'd never let you go, and i never did
I said i'd never let you go, and i never did
I said i'd never let you go, and i never did




7. WELCOME TO THE FAMILY

We're finally home at last
I've waited for this day to come
There's just something about you that rubs me wrong
You're not worth my attention
I built this with my own two hands
If you could sever the ties and stop using me as your next misconception

[Chorus:] (x2)
I don't believe that everything you've known about me is gone forever
And i wont forget the days that we spent forever, it haunts me

It won't be long before you meet your end
You're nothing more than a passing frame
So keep those cameras rolling
You think i wouldn't remember?
You're just another whisper in myself
You can spare me the lies
You don't believe in me
Your life's a contradiction

[Chorus:] (x2)
I don't believe that everything you've known about is gone forever
And i wont forget the days that we spent forever, it haunts me

Move!!!!!!

[Chorus:] (x2)
I don't believe that everything you've known about is gone forever
And i wont forget the days that we spent together, it haunts me.




8. HOMESICK

Everything around me seems much different from where i'm from
And at this rate i think that my faith has been
Well go cause if you live a life that no one knows where shes gonna go

Right here right now,this ends, gonna give it up in the end
And i won't say one single thing till we get this right
I'm moving on
I'm moving on

Hey mom i wrote you some soft songs, and tell dad i'm just fine
We have to choose we made our moves, now we gotta go, gooooo

Everything about me seems much different when i was young
I couldn't wait to take my place 5 years to pass
So why, i've never felt so alone in my whole life, times not on my side

Right here right now, this ends, gonna give it up in the end
And i won't say one single thing till we get this right
I'm moving on
I'm moving on

Hey mom i wrote you some soft songs, and tell dad i'm just fine
We have to choose we made our moves, now we gotta go, gooooo

And why's this make me so nervous
Why does everything go so wrong
Why's this make me so nervous
Why does everything go wrong

I'm holding onto a fairytale
We're moving forward but we're not there yet
I'm holding onto a fairytale
We're moving forward, we're moving forward

I'm holding onto a fairytale
We're moving forward but we're not there yet
I'm holding onto a fairytale
We're moving forward, we're moving forward

Hey mom i wrote you some soft songs, and tell dad i'm just fine
We have to choose we made our moves, now we gotta go, gooooo

Why's this make me so nervous
You make me so, you make me so
Why does everything go wrong
Why's this make me so nervous
You make me so, you make me so
Why does everything go wrong




9. HOLDIN' IT DOWN FOR THE UNDERGROUND

Been through a lot this last year
Like everything i love is slipping away
And every time i come home
Somebody it isn't there
I got to get it together
I got to do things for myself
I've giving everything
Plus you take some from me
I need some room to breath

Come on come on
You know this isn't what we planned on
Come on come on
Tell me will be ok
(will be ok)
Lets go back lets go back
To a time where i
Still felt i had a family

This isn't what i remember
Everyone is looking
Out for just themselves
And need be i'd be happy to leave
?
I see straight through
That smile straight through
That painted face
Don't think i can't tell
Which one of you is against me

Come on come on
You know this isn't what we planned on
Come on come on
Tell me will be ok
(will be ok)
Lets go back lets go back
To a time where i
Still felt i had a family

I am the greatest thing that falls
I turn my back and look at the walls?

Pay attention!!!!

Come on come on
You know this isn't what we planned on
Come on come on
Tell me will be ok
(will be ok)
Lets go back lets go back
To a time where i
Still felt i had a family

Been through a lot this last year
Like everything i love is slipping away




10. YOU ALREADY KNOW WHAT YOU ARE

They used to tell me:
You got to choose a side
Now it's four years later,
And they beg for advice.
Don't trust the critic he's a cynic
Make the call for yourself
This is my 10-step course to not be like everyone else

I know it's not the easiest route,
And i know
It leaves you overflowing with doubt
But if you want it you can have it
Hope it's all that you dreamt
Cause once you got it your gonna get it
You wont be leaving this

You can't trust everyone you meet
They won't amount to anything
Go tell them
Go tell them it's not as simple as you think
You can't trust everyone you meet
They never meant that much to me
Go tell them
Go tell them it's not as simple as you think

Clenched fists held above me
You will never bring me to my knees
I said clenched fists held above me
You will never bring me to my knees
You'll get what you deserve




11. ANOTHER SONG ABOUT THE WEEKEND

They keep playing sad songs on the radio
And i feel like i'm so alone
On this 15 hour drive
And all awhile i tell my self to just believe
Cause nobody can give so much
And never get anything
(never get anything)

Everyone i use to know
She said i know when ill be calm
But i'm still the same
I know what you say
I still know where i came from

I fell asleep with the lights on
I can see your the first one in a long time.
That had some faith in me
(have faith in me)
I tell my friends, it wont be long
Before it's time for me to come back home
It feels like i'm ready for anything
If you can wait for me.

In all the while i say to much of what i think
And i can't remember what it's like to find meaning in anything
For the life of me
Everyone i use to know
She said i know when i'll be calm
But i'm still the same
Not matter what you say
I still know where i came from

And all i ever wanted was so far from what i need
I'll write my songs so sing along i know time heals everything

I fell asleep with the lights on
I can see your the first one in a long time.
That had some faith in me
(have faith in me)
I tell my friends, it wont be long
Before it's time for me to come back home
It feels like i'm ready for anything
If you can wait for me.

This is all i have!
This is all i have!
Its my life
This is all i have!
This is all i have!

I fell asleep with the lights on
I can see your the first one in a long time.
That had some faith in me
(have faith in me)
I tell my friends, it wont be long
Before it's time for me to come back home
It feels like i'm ready for anything
If you can wait for me.




12. IF IT MEANS A LOT TO YOU

Hey darling, i hope you're good tonight
And i know you don't feel right when i'm leaving
Yeah, i want it but no, i don't need it
Tell me something sweet to get me by
'Cause i can't come back home 'til they're singin'

La, la la la, la la la
'Til everyone is singin'

If you can wait 'til i get home
Then i swear to you that we can make this last
(la la la)
If you can wait 'til i get home
Then i swear come tomorrow, this will all be in our past
It might be for the best

Hey sweetie, i need you here tonight
And i know that you don't wanna be leaving
Yeah, you want it but i can't help it
I just feel complete when you're by my side
But i know you can't come home 'til they're singin'

La, la la la, la la la
'Til everyone is singin'
La, la la la, la la la

If you can wait 'til i get home
Then i swear to you that we can make this last
(la la la)
If you can wait 'til i get home
Then i swear come tomorrow, this will all be in our past
It might be for the best

You know you can't give me what i need
And even though you mean so much to me
I can wait through everything
Is this really happening?
I swear i'll never be happy again
And don't you dare say we can just be friends
I'm not some boy that you can sway
We knew it'd happen eventually

La, la la la, la la la
Now everybody's singin'
La, la la la, la la la
Now everybody's singin'
(if you can wait 'til i get home)
La, la la la, la la la

Now everybody's singin'

If you can wait 'til i get home
Then i swear we can make this last
