Track Name: Dear Brother
everybody knows that we don't play no games
though our fists are kinda tough, our hearts are kinda tame
and we live and we learn and we play and we work
until the day we die, until i'm in that dirt
i will love and i'll laugh and i won't give it back
all those good times that we'll have, and don't forget the past
we were just this little kids with our heart there on our sleeve
and our father wasn't home so we walked all of these streets
oh yes we did...

and i've got your back every time you come around
and you've got my back every time i hit the ground
and i've got your back every time you need a friend
and you've got my back until the very end

now everybody says that we're no good for each other
but don't nobody know me like you do my brother
we can sit and tell these stories of our sister and our mother
we can act like we don't like them but we don't got us another
and we can't forget our brothers and that man we call our father
though he wasn't always there he taught us like no other
now we have all of our family and can't forget our friends
because without either one of them our lives would be quite over
oh yes they would...

and i've got your back every time you come around
and you've got my back every time i hit the ground
and i've got your back every time you need a friend
and you've got my back until the very end

now that everything is dead it's time to start our lives all over
now that summer's coming to an end and autumn's on our shoulders
you were everything i needed in the past and in the present
you will always be my friend i will not take that shit for granted
oh no i won't...

and i've got your back every time you come around
and you've got my back every time i hit the ground
and i've got your back every time you need a friend
and you've got my back until the very end
Track Name: Here's To The Life
everybody tries to put me down
it's alright 'cause i'm already on the ground
i only got six more feet
before i am dead and beat
and i'll sing woah, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

i've got my wants but she has her needs
unfortunately hers is on her knees
that's the life of these kids these days
so lost like they're trapped in a maze
and they'll sing woah, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

oh mother don't cry just yet
i'm still alive yeah i'm not dead yet
i've done it all from my time on the streets
the cold winters through the summer's heat
and i'll sing woah, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

here's to the life that we'll never get
and to the friends that we won't forget
we'll live our days as bright as the sun
and when they're done we'll just sing along
and we'll sing woah, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh

here's to the life
Track Name: Faith In A Song
Days come, and days go
They move so fast but arrive so slow
Just like the rain, the snow pours
When that sun is shinning we’re sad no more
I’ve got my friends, I’ve got my family
And then I have the ones that don’t mean a damn to me
Just like your mom, and like your dad
I’ll always be here through the good and bad

Well I’m here, and you’re there
Somehow we fell apart year after year
But I’m alright, I’ll be okay
I finally realized what I need each day
I lace my shoes, and stand my ground
Next time you come around you wont knock me down
So hold your breath, but not too long
You’re the type of person who needs faith in a song

Days come, days go
I’ve got hope like no one knows
Don’t lose, your faith
You’ve got time to fix mistakes

Here we stand, face to face
I can’t believe at once we had so much hate
Towards each other, but now that’s gone
We both let this game play on too long
So start your day, don’t burn away
All those loving words that you want to say
You’re doing good, I’m doing better
We both made our peace through these hand written letters

Days come, days go
I’ve got hope like no one knows
Don’t lose, your faith
You’ve got time to fix mistakes
Track Name: Jaked On Green Beers (ALK3)
It's been a long time since I've been close to you
It's been a long time since I've been sad.
It's been a while since I've really spent time with you
Wish I could take back those times that we had.
The only thing that you ever really did for me
Was make me oh so miserable.
And the hope that I'll never see your face again
Is anything but questionable.

I hope this is goodbye
I hope this is goodbye
I hope this is goodbye

There was a time when I thought you were a friend to me
I think those times I was probably just drunk.
And if they offered a test about being a good friend
I'd put money down that you'd surely flunk.
The only thing that you ever really took from me
Were my records to sell them for dope.
Now all I have left is this heart in my chest
Your dishonesty helping me cope

I hope this is goodbye
I hope this is goodbye
I hope this is goodbye

Well I hope this is goodbye
And I hope that this is goodbye
And i hope this is goodbye
And I hope that this is goodbye
Track Name: Goodbye Today (part 2)
you came and went so fast in my life
i don't know who's wrong, who was right that night
because you're gone and i'm still here
just whisper something sweet in the air
you wont see me cry and you won't hear me plea
but i want you to know i'll be fine with just me
i've done it before and i'll do it again
i know this road like the back of my hand
these nights are so long while these days are so short
i get on my knees when i pray to the lord
to send me a sign or a helping hand
but then i remember that i've got my friends
they've been here through the thick and the thin
just like i was for you back then
i've done all i can to live out my days
i've got all i want but lost you on the way

all that i need is right here in my hands
along with my voice that makes me a man
i've traveled this land and i've seen it all
from winter to spring and summer through fall
we think it's so tough and we had it so bad
until we step back and see what we had
life was so crazy but life was so fun
we were out of control like a misfired gun
now that we're older and we're all grown up
we finally realized that we must give a fuck
about our lives and the things that we do
we can't run around still acting a fool
it's time to live up to those words that you say
you say you praise god only on holidays
stay true to mind and stay true to your heart
or else your life will just crumble apart

here's to the life, the one that we hate
with our family and friends and the ones that escaped
responsibility as a man
and now they live life with no plan
here's to the life, the one that we love
with our family and friends and the ones up above
who left this life a bit too soon
and all we have are memories of you
