Track Name: Hole in the Wall
I'm walking down a quiet hall
And I'm the only one who's standing tall
And as I walk it may get longer
But what doesn't kill me makes me stronger
So I'm told
So I'm told

And I'm also told that I won't get old
And I'm also told that bread won't mold
And I'm also told that winters won't get cold
And I already know that my soul has been sold

I'm looking 'round to find a way out
While everyone walks the same hopeless route
I just wanna show 'em some love
But they just don't care enough

I gotta show these people there's more than this
And it's a sad sad thing that they got nothing to miss
I'm gonna show these people that wrong can be right
I'm gonna take 'em out of darkness and show 'em the light
Show 'em the light

I'm gonna punch one great big hole in the wall
I'm gonna punch one great big hole in the wall
I'm gonna punch one great big hole in the wall

Until it all comes crashing down

Now I'm walking in an angry hall
And everybody's standing tall
And as we walk it may get longer
But what doesn't kill makes us stronger
So we know
So we know

And we also know that we will get old
And we also know that bread will mold
And we also know that winters will get cold
And we've always known that our souls have been sold

So let's punch one great big hole in the wall
Punch one great big hole in the wall
So let's punch one great big hole in the wall

Until it all comes crashing down

So let's punch one great big hole in the wall
Let's punch one great big hole in the wall
Punch one great big hole in the wall

Until it all comes crashing down
Track Name: Kath and Other People
So this is how it feels, when everything goes right
And I know it's goin well when I hate going to sleep at night
I feel like I have to say what I couldn't understand before
And knowing that this feeling's going it makes me shake to the core

Because how could I ever get over this
And how could you ever not be someone I'll miss

Well after I leave you and this place
You know I'm gonna be sad
But knowing it goes on doesn't make me feel so bad
There are scores of kids who will go and make the same mistakes, That we did
But being young is not knowing especially this

Because how could I ever get over this
And how could you ever not be someone I'll miss

So do as you've been taught and draw your sword
And take a stab at the good we've been fighting for
No more hiding behind capes however pleasant they may be
We can go and set this world on fire, you and me

Oh but how could I ever get over this
And how could you ever not be someone I'll miss

I'm never going to get over this
And you'll always be someone that I'll miss
Track Name: The Novel
I've been thinking about this for some time
Now sit down and let me tell you about this novel of mine
Well on the cover there'll be a picture of me
And I'll be doing something cool and I'll look so damn happy
Flip the page and that's where you'll see
That this book is dedicated to all the things I'm gonna be
Well chapter one comes in with a bang
Our hero is strong and free of distress
Our hero's the one that will clean up this whole mess
Well the plot develops and time passes by
Our hero's not so strong, he's now not such a brave guy

Because he was hit hard by life and he was knocked out by love
He tried to get back but he had no faith up above
So a darkness starts to take over and it fits like a glove

Pressing on, he finds faithful friends that will be there for him when his mind breaks and bends
And with their help he finds what he loves to do
And in the process finds someone that loves him too
And towards the end he doesn't know what to do
Because everything difficult in his life has finally stopped

But he was hit hard by life and he was knocked out by love
He tried to get back but he had no faith up above
And a darkness starts to take over and it fit like a glove

But he was hit hard by life and he was knocked out by love
He tried to get back but he had no faith up above
So a darkness starts to take over and it fits like a glove

But as it turns out not many people liked my story
In fact they chewed it up and spit it out in all of its glory

So I took my dumb book and I ripped out the pages
I burnt them to ash and let them drift through the ages
None of it was definite but now its written in stone
That my true to life story will never, never be known

Because he was hit hard by life and he was knocked out by love
He tried to get back but he had no faith up above
And a darkness starts to take over and it fits like a glove

Because he was hit hard by life and he was knocked out by love
He tried to get back but he had no faith up above
So a darkness started to take over and it fits like a glove

And far down the road when people try to read my novel
They'll see the scars I made and how they'll never mend
Because all they'll see is the end.
Track Name: Split
He's quick to love
But he's quicker to hate
He always goes
When he needs to wait
He cannot slow
And he does not know how to say
I'm sorry

She's quick to hurt
And she's quicker to cry
And those other guys
Gave her plenty of reasons why
She wants to go
But she does not know how to say
Goodbye

And they fade away
And they fade away
And they fade away

'Til they cause a split

She raised her voice
But it wasn't her choice
He raised his fist
It was a feeling she didn't miss
There's gonna be a hole where she used to be
And he won't sleep right for weeks

And they fade away
And they fade away
And they fade away

'Til they cause a split
'Til they cause a split

It was his fault for being so cruel
And he saw in the end that he was the fool

By the time he learned to apologize
She was gone with some other guy

Oh
Oh
And they caused a split

Ooooh
Track Name: (Teen) Aged Arrogance
It started with a kiss

It started with a kiss and then a see you later
And then I saw her later and well I kinda hated her

Now she talks to me all the time
And I just can't seem to tell her that I don't have the time

You see, not too long ago no girl knew my name
And now when I'm around I can't keep them tame

And it's not like I wanted this excess fame
Because I'm really fucking tired of this stupid teenage love game

It went on with a slap
And then another slap
And then plenty more until I said holy crap

And I was stuck, being tossed around
Until I finally snapped, then I hit the ground

I looked around and there was no one that cared
I was so damn tired of always being scared
You've only got one chance at this
So blow out your candles and make a wish

You can't care so much
You just gotta let it go sometimes
And life's just too short not to rush
You just gotta let it go sometimes

It started with a kiss
And then she got pissed
I dug myself a hole
And there was no way out
And it was caving in
On top of me
A stupid little kiss

You can't care so much
You just gotta let it go sometimes
And life's just too short not to rush
You just gotta let it go sometimes

I was drunk, you were coy
I was a hormone impulsed little boy
I was everything but good to you
And I made that mistake before the night was through
I begged and I pleaded, I thought all I needed was you
But that wasn't true
You hate me for the sake of it
And were both sick of each other's shit

So why not just let it go
Why not just let it go
Oh why not just let it go
Why not just let it go
Oh why not just let it go
Why not just let it go
Why not just let it go

You can't care so much
You just gotta let it go sometimes
And life's just too short not to rush
You just gotta let it go sometimes

It ended with a piss
