Bayside Monster

I try, try I look for bad on the inside

but heaven knows you’re heaven sent

your skin stretches perfectly over perfect placed bones that shame the greatest architects

This time there’s nothing I can do

My heart has swelled to twice it’s size I’ve got everything to lose

Walk, walk with me through a mind where everything is too good to be true

I’ll chance suspense

I don’t believe in much now I bring things up just to shoot them down

I guess just for the night I’ll bend

This time there’s nothing I can do

My heart has swelled to twice it’s size I’ve got everything to lose

I’m just good for a one night stand

a night to I’ll find something new, I can’t control this monster I am

This time there’s nothing I can do

My heart has swelled to twice it’s size I’ve got everything to lose

I’m just good for a one night stand

a night to I’ll find something new, I can’t control this monster I am

Bayside Roshambo

You never really knew

the things you learned would matter;

the things you did and didn’t do would someday define you;

the things you hate the most :

the lessons on piano,

the books you read in Sunday school–

I swear I’d trade in anything to be young again.

And all these things

were lessons in living

It seems like we’re all fighting to be more than who we are.

Life’s been a test of virtue and humility so far.

‘cause give and take don’t matter either way.

Luck of the draw, the lottery;

Roshambo for poverty.

Destination: anywhere but here.

Here I go again,

feeling sorry for myself.

Am I getting old at heart–

too old to pretend

that everything’s alright?

Have I had a choice?

Walking past a threshold

into a change

and your life’s never the same again.

And all these things

were lessons in living.

It seems like were all fighting to be more than who we are.

Life’s been a test of virtue and humility so far.

’cause give and take don’t matter either way.

Luck of the draw, the lottery;

Roshambo for poverty.

Destination: anywhere but here.

My mind’s open.

I scream for better things.

It seems like were all fighting to be more than who we are.

Life’s been a test of virtue and humility so far.

’cause give and take don’t matter either way.

Luck of the draw, the lottery;

Roshambo for poverty.

Destination: anywhere but here.

Bayside Time Has Come

I think that the time has come

We could ask some questions

If we should get to heaven

About when we were alive

Before we take it that far

Make plans to go peacefully in the dark

Let’s see if we can see it through

And my head, it hurts, today

I thought I’d like to live forever

But it just reeks of patience and effort

This is the calling I’m waiting for

I’m short on time but here’s my intention

To raise my voice and get your attention

And make a sound that makes me proud

I think that time has come

I think that time has come

I’ve seen all my chances

Go up in flames like matches

Waiting for the day

When New York’s unsettled son comes home

He’s bringing hell with him

See if you can see it through

And my head, it hurts, today

I thought I’d like to live forever

But it just reeks of patience and effort

This is the calling I’m waiting for

I’m short on time but here’s my intention

To raise my voice and get your attention

And make a sound that makes me proud

I think that time has come

I think that time has come

I think that time has come

And my head, it hurts, today

And my head, it hurts, today

I thought I’d like to live forever

But it reeks of patience and effort

This is the calling I’m waiting for

I’m short on time but here’s my intention

To raise my voice and get your attention

And make a sound that makes me proud

I think that time has come

I think that time has come

I think that time has come

I think that time has come

Bayside Pigsty

Your name is dirt

and I’ve got you under my nails,

from clawing to freedom,

I’ve been buried below your dark trails

Do you know who you are?

Are you having the time of your life?

Well I hoped there would be a day I would see you get your desserts

but baby there’s still time

So when you lose your mind,

you’ll find it at the bottom of the mess that’s your life

Go take your own advice

Keep hoping that the lies never catch up to you in time

Your name is filth

Cause that’s all you spew from your mouth

Well I think that your moral compass is broke,

it only points you south

And I wear my scars

like rings on a tree,

there they are

showing my age and proving where I’ve been so far

So when you lose your mind,

you’ll find it at the bottom of the mess that’s your life

Go take your own advice

Keep hoping that the lies never catch up to you in time

I can’t say for sure

but it seems like you get more and more secure with every jab

My life with you

is like tying my own noose

So when you lose your mind,

you’ll find it at the bottom of the mess that’s your life

Go take your own advice

Keep hoping that the lies never catch up to you in time [x2]

Bayside Sinking And Swimming On Long Island

This place is dragging me down

A hamster wheel, I thought I’d be done by now

Now that all my allies are gone

I realize advancing could hold you back

My good intentions just keep sliding by the wayside

But it’s high tide and they get washed away with time

Until everything’s gone, until everything’s gone

I was flying along the Long Island sound

But fine’s polite I’d rather things more profound

I’ve become a rock these days and I swim like one

Alone again, barely surviving the tidal wave

My good intentions just keep sliding by the wayside

But it’s high tide and they get washed away with time

Until everything’s gone, until everything’s gone

I swear, damn it all to hell, damn it all to hell

I think I finally found the way to go to heaven

Without dying, so I’m on my way

The harder you work, the harder you fall

You wake up one day with nothing at all

My good intentions just keep sliding by the wayside

But it’s high tide and they get washed away with time

Until everything’s gone, until everything’s gone

Until everything’s gone, until everything’s gone

I swear, damn it all to hell

Bayside Transitive Property

I know my dear I got us here

But I’m seeing things like I never saw before

My heart is like a powder keg and it blew and burned us both and left you sore

But I’m not afraid to say I think you’re wrong to think we’re through

Don’t throw away our lives on this

Last month was hard I do admit

But the hardest road pays off the most

And I love you more and more each day

And when we fight there’s still a way

‘Cause you’re my rock if I’m still yours

And I never meant to say the things I said when I’m upset and need to vent

But now I’m this close to losing you

I swear I’ll never make you sad again

And I’m not afraid to say I think you’re wrong to think we’re through

Don’t throw away our lives on this

Last month was hard I do admit

The hardest road pays off the most

And I love you more and more each day

And when we fight there’s still a way

‘Cause you’re my rock if I’m still yours

I know that I promised not to call

But princess, I needed you to know

That I’d give anything for one more day

To stand beside you at your throne

I’m not cut out to face this world alone

Don’t throw away our lives on this

Last month was hard I do admit

The hardest road pays off the most

And I love you more and more each day

When we fight there’s still a way

‘Cause you’re my rock if I’m still yours

Bayside It’s Not As Depressing As It Sounds

Wrap me in linen and show me to my tomb

Fashioned from sheets we’ve shared and things I’ve yet to prove

And the glue is the hope that any promise I’ve spoke

To my seed or myself or any person of note

Would be made good while I’ve still got the time

It’s not as depressing as it sounds

Just want to be prepared

I’m in no rush to end it

But look at it from my perspective

I’ve messed with confidence and never understood

If you’re not afraid then you’re not doing all you could

And I know that there’s love because I’ve seen it myself

And I’ll be damned if I don’t move because I’m scared to cross the road

I’ve never felt so much like I’d arrived

It’s not as depressing as it sounds

Just want to be prepared

I’m in no rush to end it

But look at it from my perspective

We want a happy home

We want to die with friends

We want to smile in life

Let’s smile in the end

And I’ve been hoping for clearer vision and open eyes

I want to stop wasting all my time keeping score

And stop existing for hopeless wishing and asking for

What I don’t have when I’ve got so much that I just ignore

It’s not as depressing as it sounds

Just want to be prepared

I’m in no rush to end it

But look at it from my perspective

We want a happy home

We want to die with friends

We want to smile in life

Let’s smile in the end

It’s not as depressing as it sounds

It’s not as depressing as it sounds

Bayside What And What Not

Nighttime fades into day

And a big mistake you didn’t know you made

See if you can take it back

You thought that this was what it seemed

Fate doesn’t care about plans

You never knew life was a rubber band

The harder that you pull

The more it snaps back

The more it hurts

Sweetness did you believe in this

They got you good they got you

No matter what transpires

Your will can take you higher now

So don’t take out frustration

On your body

That junk will make you sorry

I’m taking my last stand

And to think they almost got me too

Don’t confuse bad for rebirth

Don’t mess around feeling like love is a curse

But you gotta make a change

Before you lose control

I’m not saying I know what and what not to do

Were all torn up from inside out

And I’ve had mistakes in my bed once or twice

That I put in my closet till I finally came to

And I realized I’ll always know what I have to do

Sweetness did you believe in this

They got you good they got you

No matter what transpires

Your will can take you higher now

So don’t take out frustration

On your body

That junk will make you sorry

I’m taking my last stand

And to think they almost got me too

Time is upon us

Be who you want to

Be who you want to be

Keep moving forward

Don’t live in the corner

Be who you want to be

Judges will judge

In the classrooms and the court

If you keep giving them their say

I’ll be who I want to be

So think what you want of me

Sweetness did you believe in this

They got you good they got you

No matter what transpires

Your will can take you higher now

So don’t take out frustration

On your body

That junk will make you sorry

I’m taking my last stand

And to think they almost got me

To think they almost got me

To think they almost got me too

Bayside The Walking Wounded

I’m weak like a one-armed boxer

Throwing punch after punch

After punch I, I give in

I’m so dumb, I’m surprised

When they duck

A scared pair of walking soldiers

We’re all wounded anyway

In our respective ways

Scientists they couldn’t fix me

I’m so tired of getting out of bed

But who would want to die as a cowardly little child?

When our time is up, will we be ashamed or proud?

You stretch the truth like a crooked salesman

Telling lie after lie

After lie, but where’s the line?

You burn bridges, you’re breaking down dams

Scientists they couldn’t fix me

I’m so tired of getting out of bed

But who would want to die as a cowardly little child?

When our time is up, will we be ashamed or proud?

Let’s take this train for one last stop, I know

It’s not the end, but it can’t be that far

Scientists they couldn’t fix me

I’m so tired of getting out of bed

But who would want to die as a cowardly little child?

When our time is up, then our time is up

Scientists they couldn’t fix me

I’m so tired of getting out of bed

Who would want to die as a cowardly little child?

When our time is up, will we be ashamed or proud?
