Lyrics

Known Her Forever

Written By: Jesse Falkowski

Verse 1:

So you said good-bye
before we ever met
whoever you were looking for
I clearly wasn’t it

Noticed you right away
and instantly I was smit
face of an angel
a body that wouldn’t quit

Her eyes are melted chocolate
her hair vanilla swirl
her lips are cherry-red
and I’m eating up this girl

I want to strike up conversation
anything to click
tell her how I see my future
and how she fits in it
how her smile lights my day
like a match to a wick
and how her tears tear
my heart into tiny little bits.

Chorus:

I just met her
but I see our future together
she barely knows me
but I feel like I’ve known her forever

Chills through my body
but still I start to sweat
have loved her forever
even though we barely met

I just met her
but I see our future together
she barely knows me
but I feel like I’ve known her forever

Verse 2:

Just got introduced
but she’s already my inspiration
started going to the gym
saving for our first vacation

Making plans for this girl
has already changed my life
thinking of the kids that we’ll have
as soon as she’s my wife

she has a tough facade
too cool for the world
she doesn’t fool me
I see the spirit in this girl

I know I can reach it
show her all the ways we relate
ready for marriage
before I’ve asked her on our first date

Have yet to approach her
she has no idea how I feel
tongue paralyzed when I speak
that’s how I know that this is real
thinking of anyway I can
to try and close the deal
the words to engage her mind
so her heart I can steal

Chorus:

I just met her
but I see our future together
she barely knows me
but I feel like I’ve known her forever

Chills through my body
but still I start to sweat
have loved her forever
even though we barely met

I just met her
but I see our future together
she barely knows me
but I feel like I’ve known her forever

Verse 3:

Finally muster up the courage to ask her out
planned the whole thing in my mind
we’ll talk passionately over dinner
our souls will merge over wine

Time to make the reservations
at the nicest place in town
spents hours on the phone
until the perfect place I found

Finally catch her all alone
nerves are shaking inside of me
before I say a word
she starts talking real excitedly

she got introduced to this guy
and she knows he’ll be more than a friend
she just met him
but already can’t wait to see him again

He’s everything she’s looking for
she already feels that their future’s set
isn’t it crazy how she fell in love
with someone she just met?

My stomach drops
but I try and keep my face a stone
soul shatters in an instant
all my hopes are gone
I can barely catch my breath
she asks me what is wrong
I bite my tongue
and tell her I’m glad she found someone

Chorus:

I just met her
but I see our future together
she barely knows me
but I feel like I’ve known her forever

Chills through my body
but still I start to sweat
have loved her forever
even though we barely met

I just met her
but I see our future together
she barely knows me
but I feel like I’ve known her forever

The Sleepy People

Written By: Jesse Falkowski

Chorus:

You’re quick to agree to
lies that they feed you
even though that they’re see through

Time to wake up the sleepy people

They try to appease you
with products that please you
every day’s a boring sequel

Time to wake up the sleepy people

They tell you you’re evil
to beat and defeat you
nothing is equal

Time to wake up the sleepy people

Verse 1:

Sometimes I feel the whole world is on my shoulders
life is getting rocky
and I’m pinned beneath the boulders

Life is nothing like the lies
our parents told us in our stollers
every year I get a little older
my heart grows a little colder

Turn on the news to see whose blood that we’re letting
president spits his latest deception
searching for non-existent weapons

Kept him an extra term
cause Fox likes to pet him
but we let them
so we deserve all the flack that we’re catching

From the rest of the world
whose furies unfurled
whose leaders we lured
to lead them to places where murders occur
when there are still
dieseases to cure
in places
where no one’s suffering is heard

The next story
about the glory of an athlete
and how much he’s getting paid
meanwhile half the world is starving
half of africa has aids

Turn the tv off
seen as much as I can see
the media is so phony to me
fake their sympathy
a mask over glee

Like the army
it’s my mission to make
people all that they can be
and i hope this song slaps
awake all the people
who continue to sleep

Chorus:

You’re quick to agree to
lies that they feed you
even though that they’re see through

Time to wake up the sleepy people

They try to appease you
with products that please you
every day’s a boring sequel

Time to wake up the sleepy people

They tell you you’re evil
to beat and defeat you
nothing is equal

Time to wake up the sleepy people

Verse 2:

Sometimes I feel like holden caufield
everything is fake
politicians on the take
won’t accept responsibility for the problems they create

The average joe can’t relate
we need to change before it’s too late
but everyone is too scared
to do anything but accept their fate

The governement feeds fears
but claim they’re giving protection
taking away our rights
by claiming early detection

Begging for change
but can’t change my direction
no one to vote for in elections
we’re all one
but divided into sections

we’ve become slaves to institutions
the white majority
fears oppressed retribution
the earth’s dying from pollution
and there’s no easy solutions

That doesn’t mean it’s not worth fighting for
religion tells us we’re rotton to the core
the whole world’s full of war
and I feel like my heart has tore

Still there‘s no sense of urgency
our only cares are currency
and we act like there’s no emergency

Increasing our wealth
but our lives are getting sadder
when did we stop caring
about things that mattered

People’s souls are torn and tattered
and they’re too tired to see the pattern
time to wake up the people
before the world finally shatters

Chorus:

You’re quick to agree to
lies that they feed you
even though that they’re see through

Time to wake up the sleepy people

They try to appease you
with products that please you
every day’s a boring sequel

Time to wake up the sleepy people

They tell you you’re evil
to beat and defeat you
nothing is equal

Time to wake up the sleepy people

Verse 3:

Sometimes the world
feels so cold
the future is always brighter
or so I’m told
but everything is rush rush
and go go
and we can’t change
cause we’re caught up in the flow

Don’t need to succumb to this cruel fate
change or die
is humanity’s fate
why don’t we ever learn from our mistakes?

Parents relate their hate
to future generations who emulate
think for yourself
change the world
before it’s too late

We spend our resources on those that don’t appreciate
ignore the poor until it’s too late
then pay to lock them in the federal pen or the state

Why do we punish our own
prison won’t make them atone
just turn their hearts harder than stone

Society is all about the stick
we’ve given up on the carrot
ideas with no merit
courts observe the letter of the law
and not the spirit

Consequences are coming
you should fear it
my words are harsh
because we’re near it
my words are prophecy
if you can hear it

If not
I’ll keep trying to reach the pop
who keeps sleeping
with covers on top

of their heads
lying in beds
hear what I said
my words are like meds
try and cure the cancer that’s spread

Until then
I’ll keep trying to wake the sleepy people
because one world’s all we’ve got
and we’re all in at as equals

Chorus:

You’re quick to agree to
lies that they feed you
even though that they’re see through

Time to wake up the sleepy people

They try to appease you
with products that please you
every day’s a boring

Get me out of this job

Written By: Jesse Falkowski

Verse 1:

When I was younger
thought I’d be a star
an astronaut on the way to mars
racing cars
raising bars
having fun
while living large

But something happened along the way
mouths to feed
bills to pay
from my path began to stray
no more future dreams
just reliving yesterdays

Memories
of destinys
and how the world would fall to me
didn’t know how
but would succeed
maybe naive
but better believe

It’s better than my current rut
in traffic jams
with pick-up trucks
dealing with
some pain in the butt
who doesn’t know
my life already sucks

Chorus:

I don’t know how much more that I can take
I cannot face another day
I want to stay in bed all day

Good God
Get me out of this job

Got bills to pay
so I force myself awake
feel like crap
but I’m already late

Good God
Get me out of this job

Another hangover to break
Another smile to fake
Another deadline to make

Good God
Get me out of this job

Good God
Get me out of this job

Verse 2:

How did things get so bad?
You wouldn’t believe the day I had
some lady screaming mad
because I overcharged her bill a tad

And the guy she was with
was kind of a bitch
kindly offered to throw me over a cliff

And my boss pitched a fit
until I threatened to quit
another day of this
and my wrists are getting slit

The monotony of the ride home
was broken when a dude on a cell phone
looked down for a minute
and hit me head on

Unfortunately I survived
though my car is too broke to drive
and all the repair shops
close by
close at 5

And I need to find a ride
because the boss wouldn’t care if I died
as long as I get to work on time

Chorus:

I don’t know how much more that I can take
I cannot face another day
I want to stay in bed all day

Good God
Get me out of this job

Got bills to pay
so I force myself awake
feel like crap
but I’m already late

Good God
Get me out of this job

Another hangover to break
Another smile to fake
Another deadline to make

Good God
Get me out of this job

Good God
Get me out of this job

Verse 3:

Well that’s about it
I know I’ve ranted a bit
but if I release some frustration
maybe I won’t quit

I’ve been praying a lot
asking God why
I can’t do what I want
are my dreams just cruel lies?

Did I not do something
that’s required?
praying I get fired
so I can do what I desire

I know I’ve got talent
this can’t be the end
forced to fend in an office
with the wolves
in their dens
pretend
that I care about the rules that I bend
listening to pointless gossip
about the jens and the bens

I need one more opportunity, lord
one more chance to shine
until then
get real used to hearing these lines

Chorus:

I don’t know how much more that I can take
I cannot face another day
I want to stay in bed all day

Good God
Get me out of this job

Got bills to pay
so I force myself awake
feel like crap
but I’m already late

Good God
Get me out of this job

Another hangover to break
Another smile to fake
Another deadline to make

Good God
Get me out of this job

Good God
Get me out of this job
