Track Name: Your New Life
I don't care if you love me anymore
I'm done with this shit I've played this game before
And I'm tired, and my heart is growing heavy
In case you were wondering, you've got the best of me

I don't know why I can't get you out of my head
Like all those books I've read
I can quote you word for word and line for line
I hope you enjoy your new life

Well now I'm scared that you're gonna sink and drown
You were my favorite thing about this shitty little town
But now you're gone, and you're not looking back
You took a one way ticket down a one way narrow path
Track Name: Letters To Home
Dear mother, how are you?
I'm writing you this letter
To let you know I let you down, yeah down just like the weather
Dear mother, how are you?
Please send my love to brother
Please let him know I'll be back home one day, just not today

Dear father, how are you?
I know we rarely talk
Maybe it's for the better, we have a different walk
Dear father, how are you?
Please send my love to sister
Please let her know I'll be alright, I'll be alright just not tonight

I know I'm all grown up now
I know I'm not the kid that
You all thought that I would be
But I am living out my dreams
I know I'm all grown up now
I probably let you all down
But I am living out my life
And I'll never live a lie

Hey brother, how are you?
We haven't spoke in so long
I thought that you and I were close, or was that fake all along
Hey brother, how are you?
Please send my love to mother
Tell her not to cry because I don't cry anymore

Hey sister, how are you?
I haven't seen you in eight years
No use in trying anymore, I've ran out of real tears
Hey sister, how are you?
This one goes out to you
I know you gave up on, but I'm not giving up on you

I know I'm all grown up now
I know I'm not the kid that
You all thought that I would be
But I am living out my dreams
I know I'm all grown up now
I probably let you all down
But I am living out my life
And I'll never live a lie
Track Name: Second Place
Saturday night, the feeling's right
At a show, don't wanna take you home
"Oh no" that's what I said
I've got these feelings in my head

I pick you up at five thirty
You're smoking by five thirty one
We have so much fun
The night is young and so are we

I don't know what to do
And I don't have a fucking clue
Well I think I'm falling for you
But you won't fall down there with me too

I pick you up from school
Hopefully everything's still cool
I just want to be the guy
You think about all day and night

Well I know I'm not the number one guy
That's always stuck on your mind
But second place, it ain't so bad
Or so they tell me all the time

I don't know what to do
And I don't have a fucking clue
Well I think I'm falling for you
But you won't fall down there with me too
Track Name: Don't Believe The Hype
hey! yeah you'll be ok
stop living in the night you'll be quite alright
you'll be a-ok
i said hey! yeah you'll be ok
don't worry when they talk
they only like to talk cause they hate themselves

here you are, you're lonely once again
don't worry one day this will end
and you got what you need tonight
so don't, don't, don't believe the hype
sex, drugs, and all sorts of pills
i know just how they make you feel
but you got what you need tonight
so don't, don't, don't believe the hype

hey! yeah you'll be ok
don't worry how you're dressed you're not born to impress
you'll be a'ok
i said hey! yeah you'll be ok
you're doing what you can and what you can is all you're doing
you'll be a-ok

step one: you gotta find your faith
achieve your goals just don't stand in place
step two: is always up to you
stay true do what you wanna do
step three: you gotta learn to laugh
forgive and forget the past
step four: you gotta make a change
if you want your life to rearrange

hey girl! i see you're happy now
you got a smile wider than a cloud
and you got what you need tonight
so don't, don't, don't believe the hype
Track Name: I'll See You Around
Everyday I wake up with the feeling
That you will come along
Everything that is so appealing
Is never what I want
I thought that you and I were great
But then you turned your back away
It's like a knife at a gunfight
I was unprepared that night
People change and so do days
Bad times they come but yet they go
I'm so afraid of what you'll say
Your words are just as cold as snow
You stabbed me once, you'll do it twice
I'm tired of my friend's advice
Remember spring two thousand nine
When you were always on my mind

I drive around this lonely town
When all these city lights go down
And I will find myself again
Someway, somehow
And I'd take you where you wanna go
And I'd take you to your favorite show
Just hold my hand my love
And don't ever let it go
Now give me one good reason
Why you're scared, why you're fleeing
I had these arms opened for you
But they closed last season
I thought that we would see it all
From Vegas to the Taj Mahal
But now all we'll ever be
Is just a faded memory

So long
Is just goodbye without the meaning inside
And you swear
That you don't care about him anymore
But you lied
I was a game to you this entire time
Now this is goodbye
And you won't see me anymore

I guess it's goodbye
I guess it's goodbye
I guess it's goodbye
And I'll see you around
Track Name: Life After You
you say that i have yet to change
you're the one who acts the same
i don't know what i said to you
to make you become so damn cruel
i know i cheated once before
don't act like you were not a whore
i know the games you try to play
after three damn years i've learned your ways
i've got my friends, i've got my drugs
i think i'll be fine without love
i've been here once or twice before
it's the same old house just another door
well i left home and then broke down
in this god forsaken town
i lost my love as well my will
well i was born to die and not raised to kill
but i'll be alright
and i'll be alright...
Track Name: Kansas Gangstas
Chorus:

We are gangstas from Kansas
But we don't roll a Lexus
We only got my mom's minivan
