Track Name: Goodbye Suburbia
This goes out to the minors with acoustic guitars
Playing for change on the street since they can't play in bars
This goes out to the girls who don't wear make up
Regardless of society telling them they aren't good enough

But it's my point of view that society's lying
It's just the reason why everyone's trying
Way too hard to be something they're not
A free thinking mind is a thing that can't be bought

We sing this song for change in the world
Because it's time for those who say no to the norm
To get recognition for revolution
It's time that we all find some sort of solution

This one goes out to all the vegetarian kids
I applaud your self control to make a difference
This one goes out to men who aren't afraid to cry
Not caught up in that cheesy trite about being a tough guy

But it's my point of view that society's lying
It's just the reason why everyone's trying
Way too hard to be something they're not
A free thinking mind is a thing that can't be bought

We sing this song for change in the world
Because it's time for those who say no to the norm
To get recognition for revolution
It's time that we all find some sort of solution

Goodbye suburbia, hello open fields
Don't become a model of something that's unreal
Today is the day
Don't throw your self away
Today is the day
It's time to stand and say...

We sing this song for change in the world
Because it's time for those who say no to the norm
To get recognition for revolution
It's time that we all find some sort of solution
For the benefit of all of mankind
Track Name: Who To Trust
Sometimes life seems like a movie
Like I'm the protagonist so I know that I'm good
And in time I'll be shocked by the other characters
And what they could, what they could truly be

Well sometimes life seems like a calendar
Because the pages keep flipping on and on
And the days that go by brought a tear to our eyes
Thinking 'bout the feelings come and come

I swear I'll stay true and I will not budge
I guess that by now I've had a few years to judge
And I have seen couples fall in and fall out
All this cheatin' has gotta stop now

Sometimes life seems like a riddle
With an answer that is not funny
Because it's not soft or sweet
And it's only ironic how
It's all about it's about
The sex and money

I swear I'll stay true and I will not budge
I guess that by now I've had a few years to judge
And I have seen couples fall in and fall out
All this cheatin' has gotta stop now

Sometimes I wish life was a storybook
Because then I could flip to the end
And I'd know if you're true and if I can trust you
And if you are a true friend

Well sometimes life just seems so hard
Because you're looking back, stuck in the past
And you think about the things that came so far
And how in the end they don't last

I swear I'll stay true and I will not budge
I guess that by now I've had a few years to judge
And I have seen couples fall in and fall out
All this cheatin' has gotta stop now
