Set It Off Crutch

I’m holding you up, keeping you on your feet,

Always in the dark even when you’re next to me.

So how does it feel,

To know that I would do anything to break your fall?

How does it feel?

I give everything but I get nothing at all.

You kill me every time we touch,

Baby you use me, I’m just your crutch,

I don’t know how long I can hold you up, hold you up, hold you up.

You got me running out of love,

Baby you use me, I’m just your crutch,

I don’t know how long I can hold you up, hold you up, hold you up.

There’s only so much of the weight I can take,

Leaning on me till I bend and I break,

So how does it feel,

To know that I would do anything to break your fall?

How does it feel?

I give everything but I get nothing at all.

You kill me every time we touch,

Baby you use me I’m just your crutch,

I don’t know how long I can hold you up, hold you up, hold you up.

You got me running out of love,

Baby you use me I’m just your crutch,

I don’t know how long I can hold you up, hold you up, hold you up.

Where you, where you gonna be?

Where you gonna be when I need somebody?

Where you, where you gonna be?

Where you gonna be when I need somebody?

Where you, where you gonna be?

Where you gonna be when I need somebody?

Where you, where you gonna be?

Where you gonna be when I need somebody?

You kill me every time we touch,

Baby you use me I’m just your crutch,

I’m just your crutch

You kill me every time we touch,

Baby you use me I’m just your crutch,

I don’t know how long I can hold you up, hold you up, hold you up.

You got me running out of love,

Baby you use me I’m just your crutch,

I don’t know how long I can hold you up, hold you up, hold you up.

Set It Off Plastic Promises

“Just give me a chance,”

She said as I packed my things,

But I already did 4 times, don’t you remember?

“I won’t blow it again,”

She said with her fingers crossed,

But she forgot about the mirror behind her.

I’m done with plastic promises.

Please don’t tell me that we’re fine,

I got too much on my mind,

Isn’t this too plain to see? Maybe.

‘Cause we’ve lost too much to gain,

We were dancing in the rain,

Tell me what am I to do,

With a double dose of you?

A dose of you.

Her lips are the gun,

And her tongue are the bullets,

She could save a life,

But she took mine away instead.

Oh she did,

And we gave it our all,

So don’t call me a quitter.

No.

And I swear I’ve tried too many times before but,

I’m done with plastic promises.

Please don’t tell me that we’re fine,

I got too much on my mind,

Isn’t this too plain to see? Maybe.

‘Cause we’ve lost too much to gain,

We were dancing in the rain,

Tell me what am I to do

With a double dose of,

With a double dose of you?

Don’t try to defy or even make an attempt,

My blinders are off and I am runnin’ again from you,

Am I OK? Am I OK? I know I’ll be OK again.

Are you ready?

So here we go, I know,

You’d kill for everything to stay the same,

In vain, we had to go our separate ways,

When you proved to me that you would never change,

I finally woke up and exclaimed,

That I’m done with these plastic promises.

Please don’t tell me that we’re fine,

‘Cause we’re not

I got too much on my mind,

Isn’t this too plain to see? Maybe.

‘Cause we’ve lost too much to gain,

We were dancing in the rain,

Tell me what am I to do,

With a double dose of

With a double dose of you?

Set It Off Heart Breaker 101

Wake up right now

I want you to open your eyes

So you could see all the guys you have terrorized

The way you walk and the way you shut us down we’re done

No one deserves this, welcome to heart breaker 101

When we started out

Everything was cool

Or at least I thought,

It seems I’m just a fool

If you wanted a song written about you

Girl all you had to do was ask

The way you walk and the way you shut us down we’re done

No one deserves this, welcome to heart breaker 101

Thanks for the wake up call now I can

See the truth that you’ve been biting through

Just so you could leave me hanging out to dry

So you could be the death of me

I’ve cut all ties we’re through to save myself from you

There’s no I in Love,

But there’s a “U” in Lust,

And after what I’ve heard

It’s you I couldn’t trust.

I should have heeded the words that were spoken

And said we should just be friends

The way you walk and the way you shut us down we’re done

No one deserves this, welcome to heart breaker 101

Thanks for the wake up call now I can

See the truth that you’ve been biting through

Just so you could leave me hanging out to dry

So you could be the death of me

I’ve cut all ties we’re through to save myself from you

Run while you can while you still have the chance

The front may be pretty but the heart is still black

Now I see your true intentions

Just one thing you forgot to mention

Thanks for the wake up call now I can

See the truth that you’ve been biting through

Just so you could leave me hanging out to dry

So you could be the death of me

I’ve cut all ties we’re through to save myself from you

Set It Off Ashley’s Song

Who knew that immaturity was an anthem,

The song that you sing when you lose your way.

Nothing to do? Well let’s argue.

If it passes time it must be okay.

Who knew that immaturity was an anthem,

The song that you sing when you lose your way.

Nothing to do? Well let’s argue.

Talking to you is just like breathing with a broken lung,

I’d much rather “hang out” with a noose for fun.

If you think you’ve hurt me you’re oblivious.

And if you think this song’s the same then you’re ridiculous.

Congrats you got this song to yourself,

The nice one is sitting all alone on the shelf,

Collecting dust,

Oh it’s a must,

Now listen as I tell them what became of us.

Who knew that immaturity was an anthem,

The song that you sing when you lose your way.

Nothing to do? Well let’s argue.

If it passes time it must be okay. [x2]

Shoo fly don’t bother me,

I swear to God if I had the ability,

I’d block your texts and have them sent to you,

So you can see exactly why I was forced to move

On and on your tighten my belt.

You’re a critic? Well critique yourself,

This is my resignations to dedication,

You should have just let me be.

Who knew that immaturity was an anthem,

The song that you sing when you lose your way.

Nothing to do? Well let’s argue.

If it passes time it must be okay. [x2]

Afflicted, Restricted, Now my head’s beating down my door.

I never wanted to have to do this,

I never wanted to write this song,

Your friends don’t know you put me through this,

Cause the picture you painted for them was all wrong.

Go ahead and call me a liar,

Tell everyone I never loved you,

You’re the saint, I’m the one on fire,

It’s reminiscent to tortured youth.

Who knew that immaturity was an anthem,

The song that you sing when you lose your way.

Nothing to do? Well let’s argue.

If it passes time it must be okay. [x2]

And so it was that the boy and girl went on to live different lives.

Apart from on another they would soon decide.

Through time and loneliness the boy found clarity,

Which he chose to release on the world through insanity.

Set It Off Shhh… It’s A Secret

Once upon a time there was someone just like you,

Who lived without a care in the world,

Just a regular girl,

With a secret no one knew

Or so the story goes

You see the way her lips move

Just trying to get in the groove

You think you hear the truth but the lies keep creeping in

City lights illuminate

Innocence but it’s too late

Cause I never wanted it to be this way

Just know that I’ll always be here no fear

Let me make one thing clear

That’s why you never see it coming,

Cause I couldn’t see the lies behind those eyes

So baby take off your disguise and you’ll see sunsets and starlit skies.

That’s why you never see it coming,

Confusion boiling like the water that’s been heated

Just like my temper when I needed some clarification But I got it now.

I found these skeletons inside your closet

Tell me my friend what you think I should do?

I am almost 100 percent positive.

That all these skeletons belong to you

Tip top in the bottom bag

Is where she keeps her favorite mag

And I won’t fall down in the murky mess of it all

City lights illuminate

Innocence but it’s too late

Cause I never wanted it to be this way

Just know that I’ll always be here no fear

Let me make one thing clear

That’s why you never see it coming,

Cause I couldn’t see the lies behind those eyes

So baby take off your disguise and you’ll see sunsets and starlit skies.

That’s why you never see it coming,

Confusion boiling like the water that’s been heated

Just like my temper when I needed some clarification

But I got it now.

Take my hand I’ll guide you there

To a quiet place where no one stares,

It’s all you need

To make your life complete

Now that it’s all said and done

All I ask of you is be the one

To never hide

Who you are inside

City lights illuminate

Innocence but it’s too late

Cause I never wanted it to be this way

Just know that I’ll always be here no fear

Let me make one thing clear

That’s why you never see it coming,

Cause I couldn’t see the lies behind those eyes

So baby take off your disguise and you’ll see sunsets and starlit skies.

That’s why you never see it coming,

Confusion boiling like the water that’s been heated

Just like my temper when I needed some clarification

But I got it now.

Set It Off Wild Wild World

What a wild, wild world we live in,

Where money talks and trouble sells,

Where if we strive to find the heavens, oh no

Then we got to walk through hell

Well if we crave a change,

Why not start today?

And sing it out loud

We’re not going crazy,

We’re learning to fly,

With both of our eyes

Well maybe it’s time to tame the monster inside,

Of this wild, wild world we live in

Wild world we live in

And seven worlds to fall apart, like that

Well if we crave a change,

Why not start today?

We’ll sing it out loud

We’re not going crazy,

We’re learning to fly,

We’re looking for answers

With both of our eyes

Well maybe it’s time to tame the monster inside,

Of this wild, wild world we live in

Destroy and rebuild,

It’s kill or be killed,

But we can change,

We can change everything,

A little love,

Never hurt anything

We fight and we bleed,

We live and we breathe

And we can change,

We can change everything,

We can change the world, yeah!

What a wild, wild world we live in

Well if we crave a change,

Why not start today?

And scream it out loud

Set It Off Bad Guy

I spend the night, yeah, doing ninety in a sixty five

Ignore the lights ’til I’m by your side

Because when you take this out on me my knees get weak

With that heart of kryptonite

I stole the moon

I made the stars align

And I showed you how to fly

And you made me the bad guy

You paint the scene with the colors of an enemy

All over me, and for your friends to see

I took just one misstep and now I’m hanging by my feet

Out of sight and out of reach

I stole the moon

I made the stars align

I showed you how to fly

And you made me the bad guy

I fought for you

I kept you safe at night

I would have risked my life

And you made me the bad guy

You made me the bad guy

You made me the bad guy

Yeah, you made me the bad guy

Guess I forgot, guess I forgot

History repeats

Once lost and found, once lost and found,

We’re too blind to see

Just show me how, just show me how the villain is me

And I stole the moon

I made the stars align

I showed you how to fly

And you made me the bad guy

When I fought for you

I kept you safe at night

I would have risked my life

And you made me the bad guy

You made me the bad guy

Now do they even know

You made me the bad guy

Ha, got it

You made me the bad guy

Set It Off Third Wheel

I’ve been thinking for a while now,

And no I don’t doubt,

That he’s ever gonna give it a rest.

The conversation didn’t take place,

I’ll need a neck brace,

To give him if he tries to see her face.

This gnat lurks around and never obeys,

Another mental breakdown saves the day,

While you cry I’ll try my best to convey,

In every way, I adore to say…

(Yeah) I think that I’m falling for you,

And now I’m not sure what he’s going to do,

And so he’s beggin’ me beggin’ me to just stay away,

Because I’m gonna get my baby,

I’m gonna get my baby tonight.

Third wheel try and deal your best hand,

You bet I can’t stand,

Every little thing you stand for,

A salesman waiting at the door,

Like a filthy whore,

I’ll leave you lonely and abandoned.

This gnat lurks around and never obeys,

Another mental breakdown saves the day,

While you cry I’ll try my best to convey,

In every way, I adore to say…

(Yeah) I think that I’m falling for you,

And now I’m not sure what he’s going to do,

And so he’s beggin’ me beggin’ me to just stay away,

Because I’m gonna get my baby,

I’m gonna get my baby tonight.

You think you’re in like sin,

But you’re way too far behind,

You excel in sabotage,

This dark collage,

Of everything you’ve tried to destroy.

Keep trying,

Keep lying,.

You’ll never find your way to her heart. (Heart)

I think that I’m falling for you,

And now I’m not sure what he’s going to do,

And so he’s beggin’ me beggin’ me to just stay away,

Because I’m gonna get my baby,

I’m gonna get my baby tonight.

(Yeah yeah) I’m gonna get my baby tonight.

(Yeah, yeah, yeah) I’m gonna get my baby-

I think that I’m falling for you,

And now I’m not sure what he’s going to do,

And so he’s beggin’ me beggin’ me to just stay away,

Because I’m gonna get my baby,

I’m gonna get my baby tonight.

Set It Off Chase It!

Shut your mouth ’cause you’re never quiet.

You put it out when I tried to light it.

This is a race that I will not lose.

I’ll chase it ’til my legs give out.

What is it you want from me?

To become what you would be?

But I would rather take my chances

At running like the wind to take advantage, but until then

Shut your mouth ’cause you’re never quiet.

You put it out when I tried to light it.

This is a race that I will not lose.

I’ll chase it ’til my legs give out.

When I do what I love

I find myself looking back again.

And as I wait for you all

To judge my every move that I make,

You’d love to watch me go down again,

And I would come to know that

You’ll never support this.

Go ahead and cast your little judgmental glances;

I’m not defenseless.

Stomp aloud and flaunt your oh-so pompous stature.

I’m where perception plays an

Important role in how you control them.

I’m not going to waste my breath on

Giving up to who you want me to be

Shut your mouth ’cause you’re never quiet.

You put it out when I tried to light it.

This is a race that I will not lose.

I’ll chase it ’til my legs give out.

When I do what I love

I find myself looking back again.

And as I wait for you all

To judge my every move that I make,

You’d love to watch me go down again,

And I would come to know that

You’ll never support this.

It’s what I want when nobody had my back.

It’s what I need when I’m feeling all alone.

And what I want is just to know to myself

Is that nobody else will break me down.

[x3]

When I do what I love

I find myself looking back again.

And as I wait for you all

To judge my every move that I make,

You’d love to watch me go down again,

And I would come to know that

You’ll never support this.

Set It Off The Grand Finale

He plants his feet remaining still

A front row seat to incomparable thrill

Reflecting on anything he had ever craved

The sun rise never seemed so sweet

Entranced by the final ocean breeze

As the world beneath him starts to shake

Run run run for the hills

Leave behind your dollar bills

The value of paper means nothing now

When everything around you is crumbling down

[Chorus:]

While finding shelter for the end

They begin reflecting on everything

I mean everything

Of the life they spent till then

She turns the page in frantic despair

While hoping that auspicious answers are there

She calls off the search accepts her fate

Sits by the window no will to escape

Stay right where you are

While death waits outside your door

The sirens are screaming they’re letting you know

To sit back relax and enjoy the show

[Chorus:]

While finding shelter for the end

They begin reflecting on everything

I mean everything

Of the life they spent till then

As smoke and ash fall from the sky

So surreal they hold on to anything

I mean anything

Hoping life won’t pass them by

Non-existing answers we are now condemned

My friend THIS IS THE END

Stay stay right where you are

As death waits outside your door

While finding shelter for the end

They begin reflecting on everything

I mean everything

Of the life they spent till then

As smoke and ash fall from the sky

So surreal they hold onto anything

I mean anything

Hoping life won’t pass them by
