The last thing on my mind is to give a fuck about the ties or kind on my mind!
The land of the free, the home, the deprived. For years, just sat back while others were asleep. But now the times are changing. Are you gonna stay the same?
We take responsibility for things that you say. Away you push it off, push it off on someone like me, someone who cares just a little too much. You’re using just another fucking crutch like me!
We’ll leave this shit behind. Our moms, our dads, our lives – leave them all back there. Leave it back without a care. Friends and familes too, leave them back at home with you. Checking out of our home town. Gonna make it somehow.
-Yellowcard, Me First
Miss your long blonde hair. Miss your sweet blue eyes. Miss your big blank stare when you’re by my side. I lost myself somewhere, somewhere back behind. Gotta help me find myself, no longer by my side.
You hung me out to dry. (You’re no longer by my side). You said that we’re through. (What else can I do). All those things you said (I thought you really meant) were all just bullshit lies!
One day these thoughts will come together. One day this shit will work out fine. It’s just like they said it but it seems like forever. Yes, I’m distorted, a blur in your mind. And the ever race you run, it’s only with yourself. Overcome the obstacles, you just, you need you, nobody else…
-Yellowcard, Lesson Learned
Sometimes I’m just left wondering why life can be so hard.
-Yellowcard, Time Will Tell
Wake up. Come live a brand new day. Don’t concentrate on this. Just try to be happy. In this world we’re living,
lay your weary head to rest. Don’t worry ’cause everything will be okay in the end.
-Yellowcard, April 20th
We’re the ones that’ll rule the world. That’s how it will be. Yeah, that’s us! We’re the kids, the damn kids of USA!
Our time is alive, still you don’t seem to recognize. You can’t be telling to us what to do, what you seem to do again. We’re sick of all your bullet plans. Your wake- it hasn’t broken through.
To those telling us how to live our lives, seem to forget we’re swarming flies. And we’re here living on the so called land of the free!
You don’t even know yourself. Don’t you go judge me.
Well, I’m on the brink of something horrible. Just what it is, I’m not too sure. But I can’t take it anymore.
-Yellowcard, On The Brink
I don’t know you anymore. I wish I knew what’s wrong. Can’t we try to slam that door, start a brand new song?
When I look into your eyes, I can see life has buried you alive- waiting, wishing, dreaming, drifting from me.
All that I wished that I’d find within you- something of value but something untrue.
-Yellowcard, Something Of Value
We will be together in search of a new life, striving as one in this world to find something pure. I’m missing you now. I’m quite sure that I’ve finally found someone.
I’ve got a sureshot way to work things out. All of this growing up has worn you down. I’ve got a sureshot way to kill your doubts. Find what you’re following and chase it down.
You’re a young man who’s willing to wage war. Break from the mold, never do what you’re told. Afterall, what are feelings of rage for?
-Yellow Card, Sureshot
You’re a young man who’s burning to break free. Here are your rights and your name’s up in lights. Don’t abuse, be the best that you can be.
Bye mom and dad, you’re all I had. I’m finding out I’m on my own. I am all alone, I am all alone. Break from the mold, break from the mold…
I never wanted us to fade out, resting on a love that fell apart. Where are you? I need you. You still have, still have my heart…
-Yellowcard, Big Apple Heartbreak
Everything just seemed so clear to me. Nothing left to know. I’ll love you right and I’ll love you pure right now.
