Track Name: Life Worth Living
Don't you want to see what you can do when you're living every single day the way that you like
Loving every single second of every single day hearing all the shit people have to say about you
And what you're doing wrong, but they're just bitter that they don't belong

Stand up, break out. Fuck everyone who puts you down.
You're not living your life if you're not living your dream.
You're not living your life if you're not living your dream.

I won't settle anymore. This is my one chance to reach for more.
I won't obey and do what I'm told. This life is my own.

What do you stand for? Who's by your side?
Live your life. This is your one chance.

I won't settle anymore. This is my one chance to reach for more.
I won't obey and do what I'm told. This life is my own.

Dig deep down inside.
Bring yourself back to life.

I won't settle anymore. This is my one chance to reach for more.
I won't obey and do what I'm told. This life is my own.

I won't settle anymore. This is my one chance to reach for more.
I won't obey and do what I'm told. This life is my own.

There's a lot of voices trying to change your mind
A lot of people that will tell you how to spend your time
But no one really knows how it feels inside
So shout out to the world this life is mine.
Track Name: Best Four Years of Your Life
Who are you to crush one's soul
A tough guy a disgrace to his home
Chest held high your life's a lie you're weaker than me
Push me down one more time and a change you will see

I won't take this any longer I'll stand my ground
You may have won the battle but the war is mine
To the man who takes pride in abuse I have two words for you
Fuck you

Spineless coward that preys on the weak
Why don't you just fucking leave

Strength comes from within
Hate won't pierce my skin
Heart of stone, I won't back down I won't fall
Heart of stone, I won't cry I won't bow down

Power obtained through hate
Pathetic in your glory years
Break my skin and break my bones at least I have a place to call home
Broken abused I have my scars but at least mine aren't on my heart like yours
You're all alone

Strength comes from within
Hate won't pierce my skin
Heart of stone, I won't back down I won't fall
Heart of stone, I won't cry I won't bow down

One day I'll laugh in your face
One day I can't wait to say
You peaked in high school motherfucker

Life's a fight you can't wait win with your fists
So I'll fight with this
Track Name: Queen of Hearts
I won't do it again but it's too late now I played the wrong hand
I won't do it again but it's too late now I played the wrong hand with a queen of hearts

Why, why are you doing this to me
Where do you go while I'm asleep
I've been grinding my teeth and biting my lip
Cause I find it hard to admit our love was a fire that was never lit

I will not fall victim to your charms
I will reveal all of my scars

She should spend more time on her self-esteem and a little less lying through her teeth

I won't do it again, I won't do it again
But it's too late now I played the wrong hand with a queen of hearts
She was a demon in disguise. She was the devil behind bright blue eyes
But it's too late now I played the wrong hand with a queen of hearts

My ears are filled with lies
With all the lies spilling out of your mouth, I'd rather have knives going in and out

Beg and plead to me cause I won't hear anything
Beg and plead to me cause I won't hear anything

I won't do it again, I won't do it again
But it's too late now I played the wrong hand with a queen of hearts
She was a demon in disguise. She was the devil behind bright blue eyes
But it's too late now I played the wrong hand with a queen of hearts

She was a demon in disguise. She was the devil behind bright blue eyes
She was a demon in disguise. She was the devil behind bright blue eyes

Don't apologize, cause all I hear is...
Track Name: One Too Many
Six feet deep, he is six feet deep
Six feet deep, he is six feet deep

He was just a kid and now you've killed him
2 tons of steel impaled right through him
His family is torn while his friends all mourn
Six feet deep, he is six feet deep
How can you sleep knowing what you've done
One too many drinks killed someone

He had so many hopes and so many dreams
It's a tragedy that he's no longer here

This is your third offense, how can you live like this
Knowing that you've killed three kids
Look in their mothers eyes and tell them how you sleep at night
Tell them how you sleep at night

He had so many hopes and so many dreams
It's a tragedy that he's no longer here

He had so many hopes and so many dreams
This tragedy took him away too soon

He was just a kid
He was so young

So young
