Our troubles are far from over
You’re looking at teenage heart breaks
And we all make the same mistakes
Aren’t that bad, if they’re made for good reasons
But I have no reason to think my mistakes are good-bye
Is what I’d say to my brain if I had a reason
To let go of reason and it’s not that hard to think of a few
So could we let go, forget what we know
And forget that anything’s holding us down
And forget that anything’s holding us down

So this goes out to the Get Up Kids
‘Cos this round’s not over
We all fight, we all fall over
As long as you keep getting up
This world can’t hold you down
To the Get Up Kids
‘Cos this round’s not over
We all fight, we all fall over
As long as you keep getting up
As long as you keep getting up we’ll fight for one more round

You’re down and out, like a candle that once burnt so brightly
But now you’re just fading away
And my tongue is in your mouth
For no obvious reason
Have we lost all hope in our own self-esteem
Well I can’t justify this taking, when all we do is a lie
And we’re breaking ourselves open just to find a way to deal with it
And we’re the ones with broken hearts
Our dreams on hold, we fall apart


******Space Cadet******

I see them walking down the street
They all look so mean
They’re all alien to me
Why they gotta act so hard
With their hoods pulled up
They don’t seem to know it’s summer
See them driving in their cars
Trying to look so hard
I’m driving in my crappy Civic
They’re all listening to hip hop
Nod their heads a lot
I’m just sitting at the lights
Cranking pop rock

What am I doing here
I don’t fit in here
What am I doing here
I feel like I’m . . .

Just another Space Cadet
On his way back home
From a mission to Mars
That almost went wrong
And I’m calling you
On your cellular phone
To say. . . Happy Birthday
The aliens came and stole my brain
But I got it back
And it’s only half drained
And it’s not that bad
But I’m kinda insane
Baby – Happy Birthday!
