Lyrics – Here In The Valley

IN THE VALLEY

When I cross the steel bridge
That’s when i know I’m home
It’s where all the heroes
Of the golden past roam
Full of possibilities
Across the valley sky
Where kids come to go to school
And elders go to die

Teens go to basement shows
Sober Club or at the Cove
Happy Tap, do your thing
YOCCO’S IS HOT DOG KING

From Easton to Catty
We share this common place
Reality of a splintered scene
Just smacks me in the face
B-hem to A-town
From the burbs straight to the hood
Not coming together
Ain’t doing a bit of good

I look around and see
The wars in front of me
When the punks hate the ‘core
Is this scene worth fighting for?

Here in the Valley
Where the outside world doesn’t exist
Here in the Valley
Spend your days getting online dissed
Here in the Valley
We got over a hundred punkers strong
Here in the Valley
It’s a wonder why we can’t get along

THE MALCONTENT

Another night not gettin paid
Another night not gettin laid
And i wonder what did i get myself into?

Time spent busting my ass
Time spent in the working class
But nothin, no nothing’s good enough for you

Well I didn’t think that getting hitched
Was just an excuse for you to bitch
About everything that I do wrong
And I didn’t think that every night
You’d find a reason to get into a fight
So I find myself just singing this song

I’m the bad guy so you say
Nothing right done every day
And I question, just why do I stay?
I’m the asshole, yes it’s true
But I’d do anything for you
Until the day you pack up and go away
Go away

So now I think back about my life
Forget why I asked you to be my wife
Realizing that I’ve sealed my fate
Maybe if I chose a different path
This wouldn’t be the aftermath
But it comes two kids too late

TROUBLEMAKER

She’s a pill-taker
She’s a troublemaker
No matter what I do I just can’t escape her
She makes me steal
She makes me fight
No matter what I do She makes me stay all night

She’s so bad but it feels so good
I want to get away but it’s understood
She’s got some kind of hold on me
She’s so bad, but it feels so good to me

She’s a heartbreaker
She’s a troublemaker
No matter what I do I can’t seem to hate her
She makes me drink
She makes me lie
No matter what I do She makes me feel alive

She’s a real shaker
She’s a troublemaker
No matter what I do I just wanna take her
She treats me bad
I throw her out the door
But no matter what I do I always go back for more

THE OTHER SIDE

I know a guy, he says he’s alright
I saw him on the street just the other day
Saw him sitting there with a needle in his arm
I walked up to him and said what’s going on?
He just shook his head and turned away

I’ve got a friend, he’s wishing it would end
Talked to him on the phone a few days ago
Telling me his life is a living curse
I said things could always be worse
That’s when he said goodbye and went away

And I know… things aren’t always what they seem
And I know… you can’t always find your dreams
But I think we gotta find some hope
I think we gotta try to cope
And things might just turn out alright
On the other side

I know a girl, she hates the whole world
I saw her on the street just the other night
She was standing in front of the corner store
Dressed up looking like the local whore
I just shook my head and turned away

SHE’S A PSYCHO

There’s this girl that’s really hot
But stable is something that she’s not
There’s something wrong with her brain
I tell you that girl is fucking insane

She’s a psycho
PSYCHO!

She may look nice but it’s all an act
I know that girl and she’s fucking whacked
Don’t try to take her home to score
She’ll put your head right through the door

She may look good but it’s plain to see
That girl is not like you and me
Don’t try to take her home by your self
The medication won’t even help

WHAT YOU BELIEVE

You’re always forcing your views on me
I don’t care what you believe
You treat me like the enemy
I don’t care what you believe
You fight and you fight
Just to prove you’re right
But that don’t make you better than me
I don’t care what you believe

I’m sick of you forcing your views on me
I don’t care what you believe
Just get away or I’ll fucking scream
I don’t care what you believe
Tell me I’m wrong
Cause you don’t like my song
Well that don’t make you better than me
I don’t care what you believe

WE… DON’T CARE… WHAT YOU BELIEVE…

Stop trying to force your views on me
I don’t care what you believe
Leave me alone and let me be
I don’t care what you believe
Take your box off the floor
I can’t take anymore
I know you’ll never be better than me
I don’t care what you believe
