We’re the lonely ones/we’re the lonely ones/

Babbling/babbling/is all I hear/in one ear out the other/not a phase/not phase it’s a way of life/a way of life/stuttering/stuttering can’t find the words to describe this sense of hurt/this sense of hurt/

We’re the lonely ones/we’re the lonely ones/ we’re the lonely ones/but our hearts will never die/we will survive/

Well this is who we are/we’ll be kids forever/young until we die/in our hearts and in our minds/this is who we are/ we’ll be kids forever/young until we die/in our hearts and in our minds/

Hey (x8)

We’re the lonely ones/we’re the lonely ones/we’re the lonely ones/but our hearts will never die/we will survive/we’ll never die/

Believe me/because I don’t want your runaround/I don’t need your handout/cause I’m gonna be just fine now/

Well I’m a lot like him/in the way that we resist/all that we don’t hold true/it’s gonna come right back to you/

Believe me/because I don’t want your runaround/I don’t need your handouts/I’m gonna be just fine now/so believe me/I don’t want your runaround/I don’t need your hand outs/I’m gonna be just fine now/

Say goodbye to me/Because we’re a disaster waiting to happen/can’t you see/we’re only letting go/take some time today/to see we’re not one in the same/we’re constantly fueling the flame/let it go out today/oh today/

Believe me/because I don’t want your runaround/I don’t need your handouts/I’m gonna be just fine now/so believe me/I don’t want your runaround/I don’t need your hand outs/I’m gonna be just fine now/
/I don’t want your runaround/I don’t need your hand outs/I’m gonna be just fine now/

SOME CALL IT CONFORMING http://chrisbenton.ca/some-call-it-conforming/ http://chrisbenton.ca/some-call-it-conforming/#comments Sun, 04 Jan 2015 19:28:59 +0000 http://chrisbenton.ca/?p=280 Falling into line/conforming/I never thought that I/would be the one to end up folding/at age thirteen it was all so clear/punk rock/skateboarding/now at twenty-seven/I’m still sincere/

Sincere and falling/right into place/some call it conforming/

Now I’m just a number/on a punch card/another nine to five/I always thought I would never play the part/at age thirteen it was all so clear/punk rock skateboarding/I can still feel the passion in my bones kid/

For now I’m falling/right into place/some call it conforming/

Well I’ve got my bills and I’ve got the stage/I’ve found a happy balance/I’ll always know that music is where my heart is/

For now I’m falling/right into place/some call it conforming/I’ve come a long way/but now I’m falling/I’ve come a long way/but know that I’m still the same guy/the same old guy I’ve always been/the same old guy you’ve always known/

LEAVE IT ALONE http://chrisbenton.ca/the-lonely-ones-6/ http://chrisbenton.ca/the-lonely-ones-6/#comments Sat, 03 Jan 2015 06:20:04 +0000 http://chrisbenton.ca/?p=108 Breaking his back at the workplace/getting no love from her anyways/feeling the lowest he’s ever felt/in a lot of ways/stuck between a rock and hard place/he’s gonna start living his own way/this isn’t a trend or a passing phase/and no he doesn’t wanna hear it/

Leave it alone he said/he doesn’t wanna hear it again/leave it alone he said/he doesn’t wanna hear it/

He’s truckin’ along just to save face/he’s gone through his whole line in a daze/slaved away all of his time/with little to show for it/he looks to his past with distaste/it’s time to turn a new page/he’s starting over with a clean slate/and no he doesn’t wanna hear it/

Leave it alone he said/he doesn’t wanna hear it again/leave it alone he said/he doesn’t wanna hear it/Leave it alone he said/he doesn’t wanna hear it again/leave it alone/he doesn’t wanna hear it/anymore/

Feeling so out of place/much like a disgrace/in need of a change of pace/and he doesn’t wanna hear it/no he doesn’t wanna hear it/he’s going out with style/no longer in denial/in need of a change of pace/and he doesn’t wanna hear it/no he doesn’t wanna hear it/anymore/

Leave it alone he said/he doesn’t wanna hear it again/leave it alone he said/he doesn’t wanna hear it/Leave it alone he said/he doesn’t wanna hear it again/leave it alone/he doesn’t wanna hear it/anymore/

He’s tired of everybody keeping score/

Be honest with the ones you love/don’t turn your back/don’t turn to run/is that what you want?/Be honest with the ones you love/don’t turn your back/don’t turn to run/they’re all that you’ve got/

caught in the middle/caught in the middle/

Tonight/is the night/we’ll let ‘em know how we feel inside/to do what’s right/

Running On Fumes http://chrisbenton.ca/running-on-fumes/ http://chrisbenton.ca/running-on-fumes/#comments Thu, 01 Jan 2015 06:27:08 +0000 http://chrisbenton.ca/?p=109 Take and take all that they can/never giving back/give it back/run and run as fast they can/blood on their hands/their hands.

Rethink the dream/take back the scene/is it worth the endless nights running on fumes?/running on fumes/

Reaping all the profits they can/just to get ahead/ahead/hands in the pockets of hard working bands/pay to play’s a scam/a scam/

Rethink the dream/take back the scene/is it worth the endless nights running on fumes?/Rethink the dream/take back the scene/is it worth the endless nights running on fumes?/running on fumes/running on fumes/running on fumes/

Selling tickets to your own shows/that’s just how it goes/how it goes/you’re the whore and they are the pimp/you lose they win/they win/

Rethink the dream/take back the scene/is it worth the endless nights running on fumes?/Rethink the dream/take back the scene/is it worth the endless nights running on fumes?/running on fumes/running on fumes/running on fumes/running on fumes/running on fumes/

You’ve gotta gotta believe in yourself and in second chances/there’s too many that are letting go/put up your guard/use your best defence/it’s up to you and you alone/there is something stooping me/there is something stopping them/there is something that is stopping you/from being you/

I’m on the outside and I’m looking in/you’re contradicting every single fucking word you spit/
