Lyrics

Leave M

Written By: Mac Whittinghill

Verse: Pain is my art. Its what I cry for.
Straight from my heart, Another word to die for.

Chorus: Cause You always tried to get the best of me.
You always tried to bring it out of me.
You always tried to get the best of me,
Just to let me die.
Verse: My hand is my friend. Its what I play with.
Straight from my pen, Is how I wrote this. Yeah

Chorus:

Chorus:

Verse: Leave me be, with my honesty
Make my plea, for the world to see.
Im another lost soul without a vacancy
And Im alone.

1st Verse:

Chorus:

3rd Verse:

Place in the world

Written By: Mac Whittinghill

Feeling numb when I wake up in the morning. Put on smiling faces just to get me going. I'd be better off to stay at home.

Wide awake I get lost in conversation,
talk so much that I don't know what I'm saying. I'd be better off to say nothing at all.

Chorus:
Looking for the answers and a life of my own. looking at the fine print that seems to be so bold. I listening
learning, stick to every word. I'm not looking for an ending. I'm just looking for A place in the world.

I'm not lazy. I have known aspirations. Play in a band except no limitations. I'd be better off to quit my job. On the road living off bologna sandwiches. 2 hours sleep and I don't know what day it is. I'd be better off to play another show...

Chorus:
Looking for the answers and a life of my own. looking at the fine print that seems to be so bold. I listening
learning, stick to every word. I'm not looking for an ending. I'm just looking for A place in the world.

Right Today

Written By: Mac Whittinghill

Chorus:
Well, I can't do anything Right Today
Right Today. Can't do anything Right.
Can't do anything Right Today, Right Today, if I could, I just might.

These aggravations a complications
I put on myself.
Take every word and make it my own.
Make something else.

Stop on a dime and wish you were mine, because I don't know what to do with myself.

Chorus:
Well, I can't do anything Right Today
Right Today. Can't do anything Right.
Can't do anything Right Today, Right Today, if I could, I just might.

So who was I to up and leave and not say goodbye? Didn't mean what I said and I'm sorry that I made you cry.
Won't push you away. Wish you were mine....(Cause I feel like I'm going to die...)

Chorus:
Well, I can't do anything Right Today
Right Today. Can't do anything Right.
Can't do anything Right Today, Right Today, if I could, I just might.

Get it right. Get it right. Get it right.

For What it's Worth

Written By: Mac Whittinghill

I closed my eyes again. I let my guard down again...

Chorus:
I give up. I give up. For what it's Worth.
I give up I give up. It can't get any worse....

No stranger, nor best friend.
I looked in, and found the end.

Chorus:
I give up. I give up. For what it's Worth.
I give up I give up. It can't get any worse....

What's wrong with me? Am I not good enough? For what it's worth did you still have fun? What does fun mean? You not getting hurt? While Hurting, While hurting me..

Knowing you I should have seen it coming. X3 I should have seen it coming X3

Chorus:
I give up. I give up. For what it's Worth.
I give up I give up. It can't get any worse....

Didn't think so

Written By: Mac Whittinghill

Chorus:
I said I didn't think so, but I could be wrong. Making you choose between nothing or all. You didn't think so and you can't decide, on telling me straight or having something to hide.

Sooner or later it had to be over. You were the one crying on the darkest shoulder.
Here I am to sever my ties. Wanna cut your throat to widen your smile....

Chorus:
I said I didn't think so, but I could be wrong. Making you choose between nothing or all. You didn't think so and you can't decide, on telling me straight or having something to hide.

You could have killed me with every kiss. Now the site of you is something to miss.
Here I am to say my goodbyes wanna push you down and make you lye.

Chorus:
I said I didn't think so, but I could be wrong. Making you choose between nothing or all. You didn't think so and you can't decide, on telling me straight or having something to hide.

Sooner or later it had to be over. You were the one crying on the darkest shoulder.
Here I am to sever my ties. Wanna cut your throat to widen your smile....
