Lyrics

rock 'n' roll suicide (kennedy)
Everything is easy once you're untied, livin' the life again
Even if it's only on the outside, destined to go 'round the bend
in a blaze of glory for one last time
I have seen the light come beamin' and I'm feelin' like a rock'n'roll suicide
My brain is bleeding, my soul is kneelin' and I'm feelin' like a rock'n'roll suicide
Things are so damn easy on the numb ride when the downside is your friend
but you just can't relate to feelin' good now, always perfecting the end
for a tortured genius who lost his mind
I have seen the light come beamin' and I'm feelin' like a rock'n'roll suicide
My brain is bleeding, my soul is kneelin' and I'm feelin' like a rock'n'roll suicide
My friends are all gonna hit the ceilin' when I'm feelin' like a rock'n'roll suicide
and I have seen the light come beamin' and I'm feelin' like a rock'n'roll suicide

their own way (connor)
You wait around long enough, you take for granted all the people that you ever loved
You run around acting tough, you haven't landed on your feet until you're strong enough
You dance around and lie enough, you take advantage of the only man you'll ever trust
You hide yourself, I call your bluff. You're in a hurry to move on, but he's not good enough
Everybody gets in their own way, baby
If I'm not crazy, it has to be you
Everybody gets in their own way, baby
There is no maybe, it has to be true
I'm waitin' , I'm hopin' for the chance to be whole again
I'm broken, I'm bleedin'. When does it end?
You wait around long enough, you take for granted all the people that you ever loved
Everybody gets in their own way, baby
If I'm not crazy, it has to be you
Everybody gets in their own way, baby
There is no maybe, it has to be true
Everybody gets in their own way

sold (kennedy/chow)
Sold to the girl with the metal through her lip
Sold to the man with the pile of poker chips
Sold to the highest bidder rollin' on a trip
Sold a life preserver to the captain of the ship
Have you seen the new thing, baby? Are you keeping up with the price of getting by?
I haven't checked my bids for hours, but I've got good supply for the ones who want to buy
Sold by your argument
Sold - I'll sign the document
Sold before it's all been spent
Have you had the new thing, baby? Are you getting some of the best stuff you can try?
I haven't checked my bids for hours, but someone means to buy everything before we die
Sold - everybody wants to shake some weight
Sold - everybody wants to get in shape
Sold - everybody wants a bigger one
Sold - so they maybe get a promotion
Sold - everybody wants to shake some weight
Sold - everybody wants to get in shape
Sold - everybody wants a bigger one, so call the doctor if it lasts too long
Have you seen the new thing, baby? Are you keeping up with the price of getting by?
I haven't checked my bids for hours, but I'm in good supply for the ones who want to buy
Have you seen the new thing, baby? Are you getting some of the best stuff you can try?
I haven't checked my bids for hours, but someone's got to buy everything before we die
Sold

someone else (connor)
She doesn't know what he's on about, she doesn't know if they'll make it now
He doesn't know where the story goes, he doesn't know how to work it out
Take it easy on your heart, make it easy on yourself
Take it easy on your heart, don't end up like someone else
She can't explain how they made it here, she can't stay if it isn't right
He can't change if it isn't clear, he can't stand it alone at night
Take it easy on your heart, make it easy on yourself
Take it easy on your heart, don't end up like someone else
And maybe when you see there's room in here to breathe
Maybe then you'll see yourself in here with me
Take it easy on your heart, make it easy on yourself
Take it easy on your heart, don't end up like someone else
Take it easy on your heart, make it easy on yourself
Take it easy on your heart, don't end up like someone else
Don't end up like someone else

dead end girl (kristich)
Are you giving up on this - chasing the ghost that you can't resist?
And if we get too close, you might feel the things you fear the most
See the moves you could not make, in your darkest nights when you lie awake
And I always knew that I'd get burned, but the hardest lesson I had to learn was
You're a dead end, you're a dead end, you're a dead end girl
The past is coming true, an endless maze you're leading us both through
And every turn we take spins us into a future mistake
With every kiss there comes a curse, and I can't decide which one is worse
And I always knew that I'd get burned, but the hardest lesson I had to learn was
You're a dead end, you're a dead end, you're a dead end girl
And I'll give you something to cry about
The heart in my chest that you ripped right out
It wanted so bad to believe it could trust in you
But I can't trust in you
The silence you keep is so unkind, until it makes you lose your mind
And all the hope of us just dies each time I look into your eyes
But I want this to tear your heart in two, when you remember what you lose
'Cause I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone
You're a dead end, you're a dead end, you're a dead end girl, can you hear me?
You're a dead end, you're a dead end, you're a dead end girl, are you listening?
You're a dead end, you're a dead end, you're my dead end girl

beryllium (connor)
She is alone in a room and I don't care, she is the face in a crowd with a blank stare
She is the fork in the road that I can't take, she is the link in a chain that I can't break
Beryllium is killing me, it's going down slowly
She is a crack in the earth that I can't fill, she is the blood on the alter I can't spill
She is a wrinkle in time and I'm too late, she is the end of the line and I can't wait
Beryllium is killing me, it's going down slowly

who is god (kennedy)
You tried to be ten feet tall by making everyone else small
but you're only left standing 'cause you killed them all
You hope to make them understand it was essential to your plan to never be a man
You couldn't be a man
Well I've studied your ways, malicious games that you play, judas
So once again you're in the sack, ready to show us what you lack
Trying to stop your star fading, they're painting it black
You're gonna prove that you're the boss by justifying all you've lost
You'll never be a man, you couldn't be a man
They'll put your ego to bed once all your friendships are dead, judas
But how can I dare say you're anything but god?
Can you hear through your hair, as I tell you who is god?
Can you hear through your hair, as I tell you who is jud
as?
