01.Move On

This is not a story that you heard or you know
Everyone in black from the head to the toe
And I'm sittin' in the back in the very last row
Hearin' everybody ask why I had to go.

Ladies and gentlemen, we're gathered here today
To talk about the end and a friend gone away
Talk about pretendin' they don't know what to say
And they're trippin' over words but they're talkin' anyway
Minglin' and singin' all these really sad songs
Talkin' up what I did right and forgettin' all my wrongs
Sayin' how they'll miss me so much now that I'm gone
Man, this is depressing, let's move on.


Let's move on
Come back to life like the light of the dawn
It's like a tightrope, just move right along
Don't look down and don't step wrong
We don't have time, so just move on.


Friends from my past wipin' tears on their sleeve
In between people that were never close to me
And as I turn my back on everyone to leave
I know that I'll be back to see them all eventually
I gotta go away just to try somethin' new
Cause what I'm used to isn't all that I can do
Just a change of scenery, just another view
Take it back to the beginning, take it back to the roots.


Let's move on
Come back to life like the light of the dawn
It's like a tightrope, just move right along
Don't look down and don't step wrong
We don't have time, so just move on
Come back to life like the light of the dawn
It's like a tightrope, just move right along
Don't look down and don't step wrong
We don't have time, so just move on.


Just move on...


Just move...



02.Start It All Up

Yo!
Give me a second
Ill write about my pain for pages
I got a head full of frustrated phrases
So just bear with me as I get this out
You know the type of person that Im talking about
These people who wanna act like they got your back
Never had your back they just stab you in it
I never pretended I had it all together inside
I got insecurities and things that Im trying to hide
And I could never seem to get anything right
And I could never seem to stop us from a fight
And I could never seem to get it right with you
And I could never redeem myself if were through
But sometimes you know what I just dont care
Im gonna speak my mind and let everybody stare
This is the last time Im telling you real loud
You wanna tell me Im wrong? Lets do it right now!


Start it all up
Im ready to go
All I need is a signal just to let me know
Come on
Start it all up
Cause all I want
Is an excuse to let loose this tension I got
Start it all up
Im ready to go
All I need is a signal just to let me know
Come on
Start it all up
Cause all I want
Is an excuse to let loose this tension I got.


Give me a minute
Ill fill a newspaper with columns
Some people saying that I got an attitude problem
That Im negative it when I rhyme
Im complain pessimistic all the time
And these lines are all the same
I just talk like this on a record and let it out
I just cock back, and let all it flood out
I just say the things I know, I feel are real,
I peel back the skin till the nerves are revealed
You wanna come with me? Come closer to the speaker
Wanna run with me? You gonna have to dig deeper
You wanna let it all out? Ill show you how
You wanna tell me Im wrong? We can do it right now!

Start it all up
Im ready to go
All I need is a signal just to let me know
Come on
Start it all up
Cause all I want
Is an excuse to let loose this tension I got
Start it all up
Im ready to go
All I need is a signal just to let me know
Come on
Start it all up
Cause all I want
Is an excuse to let loose this tension I got.

03.Strange Things

Yo
Everybody up, let me introduce to you
A man that you heard of, and you thought you knew
Well gimme a couple of seconds just to prove to you
You never did, but let me give you a chance to
I used to swear everybody had it in for me
People only wanted to talk to spit on me
So I paint pictures and draw a little bit
And every time I was pissed off at some kid
Id get home, and draw a little sketch
Of any kid I hated with a knife in the neck
A pencil in the eye and a hole in the back
I had a backpack of six sketches like that
And over time, people started to see
The pictures that I made made a lot of sense to me
But it never even really made much of a difference
They still talk shit, but not at close distance
And that sucked, cause all I wanted to have
Was just a little attention, whether good or bad
But over time, I got sick of trying
And kept making the pictures and kept drawing lines.


I dont know where Im going with this
Im just reminiscing and telling the story of this
So sit back and take in the story of the kid
As I look back at the strange things I did.


Everybody up, let me tell the truth to you
I never thought Id be anyone youd wish you knew
I just thought Id end up a stain on the wall
Something you wanna fix, if you see it at all
Anyway, back a few years time
I had a class with a smart - mouthed friend of mine
And we would sit in the back, the two of us combined
Would make fun of everybody just to pass the time
Now, we did it quietly so no one heard
A couple of nerds with pages full of pictures and words
Until this kid heard we were calling him names
And decided to get tough, I remember he came
Up to me that day in front of half my friends
And talked shit so loud, people couldnt pretend
They didnt hear him, saying he would beat my ass
And I laughed, but he was serious and pushed me back
At this point, I was pretty confused
This little bitch was all amped, so what could I do?
I shoulda come back at him, for all to see
But instead, I just told him that it wasnt me.


I dont know where Im going with this
Im just reminiscing and telling the story of this
So sit back and take in the story of the kid
As I look back at the strange things I did.


I dont know where Im going with this
Im just reminiscing and telling the story of this

As I look back at the strange things I did.


Its like Flatliners, you see that flick?
People die and come back seeing crazy shit
People that they did wrong come back to attack them
And everyone they hurt comes back for revenge
Well, if that was ever gonna happen to me
I potentially would be attacked constantly
But then again, for all the pain in my past
Thered be a lot of people that had better watch their ass.


I dont know where Im going with this
Im just reminiscing and telling the story of this
So sit back and take in the story of the kid
As I look back at the strange things I did.
