Wake Me Up 03:04
V1: Everything is cracking me out tonight When I'm feeling so lost in this world alright I can feel you tossing and turning tonight It keeps my dreams from coming yeah V2: Now I've started to toss and turn myself It's stranger now in this here foreign house I feel awake, but I can't control my mind Nightmares fill my thoughts baby Chorus: Wake me up Wake me up from this dream V3: Screaming out in the middle of the night I'm begging please rise up the morning light Shadows are here creeping in my life Wake me up from this nightmare V4: Sleepwalking outside of my head My mind is floating, but my body lies dead Held tight by the covers of this dream I can feel it coming over me Lyrics Written By: R.Perry Copyrighted By SOCAN & HER Records 2003
V1: Bleached blonde, blue eyed tramp Tall and skinny with that orange tan Dresses like a slut, everything’s exposed Why does she even bother to wear clothes? She’s your American Perfekt So little is never enough She’s sweet and she is innocent Yeah she’s a real drama queen Chorus: She’s a ditz, a bitch no more than a label She’s your dream, your American Perfekt V2: Pretends she’s sweeter than she really is Acts stupid just like a little kid Flips her hair and shakes her ass when she walks How can you not see that this is false? No, I’ll never be like her I’d rather be insecure I’m not your pleasure, but I’m your pain You can’t have me, and it makes you insane V3: Black haired, green eyed girl Short and thin, paler than the whitest snow Dresses like a freak in leather and in lace You could never have a piece of my face I’m better than your American Perfekt I’m not sweet nor innocent I’m a smart sexy chick, nothing that you’ll ever get I’m not your dream, and I’ll never be your pet Lyrics Written By: R.Perry Copyrighted By SOCAN & HER Records 2003
Departed 03:24
V1: Take me away, I need a rest From all this stuff that I can’t deal with Too many broken hearted, long lost memories gone Departed V2: I can’t live on like this When every hit becomes a miss I need a new state of mind Help me heal this bruise Chorus: Too many shattered dreams Have come crashing over me Too many losing streaks Have gone, too far V3: Help me when I fall, I need to get my feet above the ground Escape this strange confusion, such delusion curses me Bridge: Help me when I fall Help me when I fall to the ground Lyrics Written By: R.Perry Copyrighted By SOCAN & HER Records 2003
V1: I don’t wanna be like you I don’t wanna be misused Only liked for sex appeal Not respected for what is real I don’t wanna shine than fade I don’t wanna be custom made Pretend I’m something that I’m not Just an object that you want Chorus: You’re just a teenaged superstar Yeah that’s all that you are You’re just a teenaged superstar V2: And people yeah they’ll give you gold But too soon, you’ll be too old Cause you’re just one of them who comes and goes with all the trends I could never follow through Posing like you, without a clue Ignorant to what it takes To have real talent and not be fake Bridge: Well I don’t care if they like my looks And I don’t care if they wear my clothes I don’t wanna be anything made I’m real, I’m me, not some conformist wannabe V3: So your song’s at number one Yeah you’re having a lot of fun But don’t think ahead too fast There’s already a better catch Yeah you think it won’t happen to you This time, it’ll follow through But I’m sorry you sold your soul and now your looks are your only hold Lyrics Written By: R.Perry Copyrighted By SOCAN & HER Records 2003
The First 02:39
V1: Rain falls, thunder strikes I wish I was with you tonight I wanna be by your side You’re my best friend, from now until the end But it hurts cause I love you more than Prechorus: Words can’t say their meaning Actions can’t show how I feel You’re my everything (My first) V2: Snow falls, wind blows Cause you’re with her tonight I wish you’d see me for anything We are still friends, but used to be better than And it hurts cause I love you so much more than V3: Sun shines, day breaks You looked deep into my eyes You saw me for the very first time We are more than just friends From now until the end And you love me more than Lyrics Written By: R.Perry Copyrighted By SOCAN & HER Records 2003
V1: Funny how those things change inside your head (Only seeing what you want) You’re an abuser of the worst things you think of (You could’ve saved your life and your mind) Get up and take a look around (Others are starting to trample you) This is it, this one last time for me To try and speak my mind to you Chorus: Mixed up, confused, abused, wasting Grow up, respect, wasting your life away V2: You screwed yourself over once again (How many times do I have to tell you?) You’re lying around and lounging all day long (When others work, you just play) Come on, you think it’s all a joke (I’m really starting to worry for you) Alright I’ll say it one more time What the hell is wrong with this picture? Lyrics Written By: R.Perry Copyrighted By SOCAN & HER Records 2003
V1: Why do we pretend to understand, even when we can’t hear the words? Why do we try to heal wounds through revenge, instead of crying out our tears? Why do we fear the unknown and persecute the misunderstood? Why do our words fail to come, when we try to speak our minds? Prechorus: I try, but I’m afraid So many questions without answers I try to run away And I climb, up to the sky, and search deep within my heart Yet the answer I know, is right before my eyes Chorus: Why? Just because Why? V2: Why are we so afraid to die, but never even try to live? And why does it always seem that the bad wins over the good? Why can’t we get satisfaction? We always focus on the negative. Why can’t we solve things through peace? Cause we’re scared of silence. Bridge: Why are the rich and beautiful in power? Why do we raise ourselves by lowering others? Why do we never find value in the simple things? And why is 16 so sweet? V3: Why when we look into one’s eyes we want to kiss them? Why do we say maybe every time we really mean yes? Lyrics Written By: R.Perry Copyrighted By SOCAN & HER Records 2003
I.R.U.M. 02:47
V1: Misappropriated Uncontortionated Emasculated Jaded to the core Chorus: You try to understand, but you can’t comprehend And you cannot see, what it is that I mean V2: Terminated Dilapidated Overcompensated Trained in my heart V3: Conceptualated Misrelated Annihilated Insane through my skin Lyrics Written By: R.Perry Copyrighted By SOCAN & HER Records 2003
