Hoobastank The First Of Me

I must make a choice

A tough decision

Listen to my voice

Should I give in

To temptation, admiration

One leads to myself

The other some one else

Just an empty shell

Just an empty shell

It’s harder than it seems

When you’re told that

All your hopes and dreams

Are yours to hold if

You just give them

What’s expected

Something they can sell

Put upon a shelf

But I am not for sale

I am not for sale

[Chorus:]

I hear a voice inside

It’s grown into a scream

I’m not the next of them

I am the first of me

’cause I can’t live the lie

I am just what you see

I’m not the next of them

I am the first of me

If I can’t refuse

The price they offer

I am sure to lose

And I will suffer

Sell my soul to make a profit

All I have to do

Is make believe it’s true

That something I can’t do

That something I can’t do

[Chorus]

So when the waiting’s done

It’s time to face the truth

You know you’re good enough

Deep down inside of you

You’ve finally woken up

If only just to prove

You were born to lead the way

And be the first of you

Hoobastank Did You

Did you say everything you could?

Do the things that you thought you would?

Did it ever occur to you that this could be your final day?

Did you go where you wanted to go?

Learn about what you wanted to know?

Did you ever really give something back instead of always taking in?

Did you find what you’re looking for?

Did you get your foot in the door?

Can you look at yourself and feel proud of all the things you’ve done?

Did you inspire the ones that you knew?

Make a difference to those who knew you?

Did you finally figure out what it is that makes us who we are today?

[Chorus:]

Don’t waste another day

You never know when you’ll get one

Don’t waste another day

To do anything you haven’t done

Did you always give it your best?

Is there anything you regret?

If you could have another shot at it all,

Would you do it just the same?

Was it all that you thought it could be?

Are you the person you thought you would be?

Or did it feel like you were spinning your wheels,

Instead of moving forward everyday?

[Chorus (2x)]

Don’t waste another day

You never know when you’ll get one

Don’t waste another day

To do anything you haven’t done

Did you? [4x]

[Chorus (2x)]

Don’t waste another day

You never know when you’ll get one

Don’t waste another day

To do anything you haven’t done

Did you? [8x]

Hoobastank Disappear

There’s a pain that sleeps inside

It sleeps with just one eye

And awakens the moment that you leave

Though I try to look away

The pain it still remains

Only leaving when you’re next to me

Do you know, that everytime you’re near

Everybody else seems far away

So can you come and make them disappear

Make them disappear and we can stay

So I stand and look around

Distracted by the sounds

Of everyone and everything I see

And I search through every face

Without a single trace, of the person

The person that I need

Do you know, that everytime you’re near

Everybody else seems far away

So can you come and make them disappear

Make them disappear and we can stay

Can you make them disappear?

Make them disappear

There’s a pain that sleeps inside

Sleeps with just one eye

And awakens, the moment that you leave

And I search through every face

Without a single trace, of the person

The person that I need

Do you know, that everytime you’re near

Everybody else seems far away

So can you come and make them disappear

Make them disappear and we can stay

Hoobastank Incomplete

Haven’t known you long enough

But now I’m seeing why

You’re always on my mind

No one else has ever made me open up my eyes

You’re the one that made me realize, realize

I’ve been incomplete

Missing a part of me

Blinded by the fear of something new

But now I see

All along what’s missing has been you

Try to find a missing piece

To fill a hole in me

A lonely mystery

Thought I had it figured out

But then you came along

And with just a look

I knew that I was wrong, I was wrong

I’ve been incomplete

Missing a part of me

Blinded by the fear of something new

But now I see

All along what’s missing has been you

I’m feeling things I never knew existed

And now I know I’ll never be the same

This changes everything

Haven’t known you long enough

But now I’m seeing why

You’re the one that’s always on my mind

You’re the one that made me realize

Realize

I’ve been incomplete

Missing a part of me

Blinded by the fear of something new

But now I see

You were all that’s missing

And you’re here with me

I’m no longer incomplete

I can see the clear and simple truth

For me to be

Complete I only have to be with you

For me to be

Complete I only have to be with you

Hoobastank Naked Jock Man

Me and my friends kickin’ in the household

Tryin’ to figure out thoughts start to unfold

Nothing to do or see I can’t understand

Combine all our thoughts to come up with a plan

Car alarm system too expensive to buy

But not if you’re gonna hire this guy

With a helmet on his head and a club in his hand

Cock in sock, it’s the naked jock man

Naked, Naked, Naked, Jock

Naked, Naked, Naked, Man

Naked, naked, naked jock

Naked, naked, naked man

Tall dark man going to break into my car

With Naked Jock Man he ain’t gonna get far

Car alarm sounds, trunk lifts up

He jumps to the ground

What the fuck’s that?

I can hear him scream in fright

Naked Jock Man just ruined his night

You can run, you can hide, just turn yourself in

Cause he’ll get you in the end

Naked, naked, naked jock

Naked, naked, naked man

Naked, naked, naked jock

Naked, naked, naked man

Naked Jock Man

He’s after Dan

Naked Jock Man

R-Y-A-N

Now months have passed since the birth of the jock man

Sally Jesse Raphael and David Letterman

Want the jock man to show his face

He’s the next bitch on Melrose Place

Naked Jock Man was just a big joke

Now you’ll see his ass on all the talk shows

The people want to know

They’re willing to die

Who the fuck is that guy?

Naked, naked, naked jock

Naked, naked, naked man

Naked, naked, naked jock

Naked, naked, naked.

Hoobastank Foot In Your Mouth

I recognize that typical, cynical smile you wear on the front row

I can hear you telling everyone about the other show

You’re the one with all of the friends

But none are real cause you’re a hypocrite

Just remember that you did it yourself and you wonder how

Just don’t stick your foot in your mouth

Never thought before you spoke

You tell me what I want to hear

Turn around and tell another

Who you think you know

Did you really think it wouldn’t get back to me

Fabrications that you spun so well

Always ready with a tabloid story to tell

So don’t complain to me

Shut your mouth and go quietly

Cause it didn’t have to be like this and you wonder how

Just don’t stick your foot in your mouth

Didn’t have to be this way

You tell me what I want to hear

Turn around and tell another

Who you think you know

But no one cares what you wanna say

Don’t bug me or any other

Shut your mouth and go

How can you live with yourself

Knowing all the lies that you tell

How can you live with yourself

I know what you want and what you’ll do

To get your foot in the door or to just break through

But you’re never gonna get to where you want right now

Cause you stick your foot in your mouth

All you have to do is change

Hoobastank Same Direction

Whenever I step outside

Somebody claims to see the light

It seems to me that all of us have lost our patience.

‘Cause everyone thinks they’re right,

And nobody thinks that there just might

Be more than one road to our final destination

But I’m not ever gonna know

If I’m right or wrong

‘Cause we’re all going in the same direction

And I’m not sure which way to go

Because all along

We’ve been going in the same direction

I’m tired of playing games

Of looking for someone else to blame

For all the holes in answers that are clearly showing

For something to fill the space

Was all of the time I spent a waste

‘Cause so many choices point the same way I was going

But I’m not ever gonna know

If I’m right or wrong

‘Cause we’re all going in the same direction

And I’m not sure which way to go

Because all along

We’ve been going in the same direction

Going in the same direction,

Same direction, same direction

So why does there only have to be one correct philosophy?

I don’t wanna go and follow you just to end up like one of them

And why are you always telling me what you want me to believe?

I’d like to think that I can go my own way and meet you in the end.

Go my own way and meet you in the end.

I’m not ever gonna know

If I’m right or wrong

‘Cause we’re all going in the same direction

And I’m not sure which way to go

Because all along

We’ve been going in the same direction

Going in the same direction

Going in the same direction

Same direction

Same direction

Hoobastank Slow Down

Sometimes I forget to breathe

Life can be overwhelming

Always pushing and pulling on me

Away from what really matters

And I keep forgetting to remind myself

I keep forgetting to remind myself

I keep forgetting to remind myself

Slow down

No one ever said this journey was a race

What’s the hurry?

Slow down

I’ll go anywhere I want at my own pace

Without a worry

I’ve gotta slow down

It’s never easy letting go

When the feeling is so familar

Of always being in control

Maybe it’s an illusion

Slow down

No one ever said this journey was a race

What’s the hurry?

Slow down

I’ll go anywhere I want at my own pace

Without a worry

Slow Down

Let go now

Slow Down

Slow Down

Let go now

Slow Down

I hope that it’s not too late

‘Cause everything’s all a blur

On and on

On and on

I hope that it’s not too late

‘Cause everything’s all a blur

On and on

On and on

I keep forgetting to remind myself

Hoobastank Replace You

In a darkened room

right beside the bed

There an empty suitcase waits ’til I leave again.

I try to fill it up

with things that feel like home

but no matter what goes in, I still feel alone

When I’m on my own.

[CHORUS]

No pictures, no letters

Nothing can ever replace you.

Reminders, whatever

Nothing can ever replace you.

Now it’s time to go

and you’re still sound asleep

when you wake up, next to you just cold empty sheets.

I gather all my things

from off the bedroom floor

One more kiss reminds me of what I’m leaving for

Then I close the door.

[CHORUS x2]

Nothing can ever replace you

Nothing can ever replace you

You’ve stripped away and uncovered the real me

You’ve stripped away and uncovered the real me

You’ve stripped away and uncovered the real me

Oh…oh…

Oh…oh…

Oh…

[CHORUS x2]

Hoobastank Better

Just when I thought that I was better

I realized that I don’t know what better was

Is it………

Better than I used to be?

Better for you or for me?

I’d better hurry cause I need a better view of things

I don’t know what it is or what I might be coming down with

Don’t know where I’ve been

Don’t know where to go

Can’t remember all the things that I need to know

All I know is that if I think about it

I’d still rather be me than me be you

And I’m not getting any better

Cause everytime I can’t remember what it’s for

Is it………

Better now than yesterday?

Better that I am this way?

I’d better not be so afraid

I bet I shouldn’t say

I don’t know what it is or what I might be coming down with

Don’t know where I’ve been

Don’t know where to go

Can’t remember all the things that I need to know

All I know is that if I think about it

I’d still rather be me than me be you

I don’t know what it is or what I might be coming down with

I don’t know what it is or what I might be coming down with

Don’t know where I’ve been

Don’t know where to go

Can’t remember all the things that I need to know

All I know is that if I think about it

I’d still rather be me than me be you

Me be you
