CHORUS: Mayday, mayday Anybody out there Mayday, mayday Anybody (anybody) VERSE 1: We're stuck in this new box canyon Nobody even cares but me I wouldn't call these guys companions Wouldn't even call them close to me There's something sneaking in the background Something I can't put my finger on I get the feeling that we're not on our own I get the feeling that it's just begun VERSE 2: Trying to keep everybody focused Trying being the operative word The discipline of this group of "soldiers" The sloth, the crazy and the pseudo nerd We're trapped in this new box canyon There's something fishy going on I know Crash landings rarely ever happen And rescue usually isn't this slow

Recovery One 04:22
VERSE 1: Give them in an inch, and they'll take a mile Give them a chance, and change your life I'm done pretending This didn't change a thing I remember Carolina, York and both the twins VERSE 2: I can't distinguish Between his thoughts and mine I have trouble sleeping Don't know what I might find CHORUS: Recovery, recover me I have heard the news The evidence I really need Is with the Reds & Blues Recovery, recover me! Recovery, recover me from this mess we made BRIDGE: Ever since you put him in my head I knew what you did And how it all came about From one single mind (Memory is the key)

VERSE 1: It must be hard if your mum dies young And your dad becomes a monster Just trying to hold on It must be hard trying to be strong When the odds will over take you And you're too scared to go on PRE CHORUS 1: So if you want to kill the man who made you are Just got ahead and be my guest CHORUS: So will you swim upstream? Can you swim against the river? Is your conscience getting thin? Do these things still make you shudder? So will you swim upstream? Can you swim against the river? Your resolution's wearing thin Or can you stand up for each other? POST CHORUS: You cannot retrace these steps And not see the people and places you left You never realised that you were Brainwashed, lied to and part of her VERSE 2: It must be hard Turning weakness into strength Trading broken in for battle Turning shortness into length It must be hard thinking that you're all alone When the distance becomes a comfort when the fight becomes your home PRE CHORUS 2: so don't forget if you let go too much it won't come back Just don't lose sight of all these facts BRIDGE: So did you look into those eyes And see a part of yourself die? Did you realise? She was a part of you She was part of your life So did you look into those eyes And see a part of yourself die? Did you realise? She was a part of you She was all the time OUTRO: You never swam upstream You never made a stand for anything You just fell in line And followed orders All the time And now you're out of time You never saw the light You even didn't see it coming You just fell in line And followed orders All the time And now you're out of time So now you're looking back And now you realise what you're looking at The devastation left In time you'll see what you have lost And what it cost The price you paid And the things you lost

VERSE 1: You turned your back on your friends You thought you knew how it ends You said some things That you might want to rescind VERSE 2: You turned your back on your friends And what you said quite offends them They stuck with you And you turned on them again CHORUS: Cause you never really talked about it No you never really got it off your chest Cause you always kinda joked about it But you never really set the record straight Cause you probably should've talked about it first VERSE 3: You turned your back on your friends I guess that really depends On where you stand In this topical debate BRIDGE: Sometimes You forget who friends are Sometimes You forget what they're been through with you Sometimes Choosing sides, changing minds Sometimes You can burn all your bridges at once

VERSE 1: We touched down in Austin And almost got lost in A feeling, excitement We're close, oh so close There were zombies and Spartans And Gavin's retarded I might get a photo With Cardboard Caboose PRE CHORUS 1: You're not here for the first time Hope it's better than last time I heard laughter from Geoff Could cure all my disease If you're here for the first time It's much better than PAX Prime Only joking it's equal They're west, we're southwest CHORUS: We would walk a thousand miles Or pass out on the bathroom tiles We're playing games and being lame It's what we'll do at RTX this year VERSE 2: Will we see Jack and Geoff? Is there anyone left Who can vouch for the stories That Joel Heyman tells? We hope we might impress them With songs that we sent them About their event RTX is now here! PRE CHORUS 2: Sure I'm stuck in Australia If I could I would sail there I just want to hang out with the cast, staff and crew If you couldn't quite make it, And you think you can't take it Calm your farm, just chill out, it'll be here next year RTX is here! RTX is here! BRIDGE: Burnie Burns boss and he's writtin the cheques You know drill, Michael's gonna RAGE Quit Miles and Brandon, really gotta hand it them Nathan's just chillin', Barbara's killing Chris You know Griffon makes art just like a pro Seb and Monty makin' RvB go Matt's the Sarge(nt), Gus is "creative" Marshall's just normal, nobody rates him CHORUS 2: We could make some new best friends And hope this weekend never ends All day we play and party hard And give the bar our credit card

Texas wants and Texas gets No 2nd chances, and no regrets She'll beat your ass all black and blue And she'll never stop til she's through with you Thinking quick. Fighting hard Whether on the floor or in the yard She's just a shade of what she was Don't mention it, or else because Pain, will come down like a rain on you. If you think you hold your own Think twice, she's got her sights on you So run! Run until you can't run anymore Then beg Hope she sees your point of view before she kicks your ass Advantage. Texas 3 on 1 but you're still alive Advantage. Texas Tell me about it, what does it feel like

VERSE1: What's worse? Losing first or losing hope? I'm not sure, anymore, about what we're fighting for CHORUS: Carolina, you get finer, but there's a choice to make Carolina, you can't define her, it's yours to give and take away Never mind her, Carolina, what is the price you'll pay? Carolina, oh Carolina, don't let them pave the way...to hell VERSE2: What's worse? Getting out or getting in This lack of space, losing first place, the games begin BRIDGE & TAG Don't let them lead you to the grave Don't let their numbers be what you crave Don't think they've given you a chance Don't be a puppet on a string They're like a wasp and they can sting Destroy your life and everything (you built for them)

Crunchbite is the saviour of the universe Crunchbite got to first base with Tucker Crunchbite the Alien who only loves

about

A collection of songs that didn't make it onto RvB: Resung due to time restraints, sucking, or being written AFTER the album was released.
In retrospect, some of these songs are actually BETTER than some of the \m/ metal \m/ songs that made it onto the release.
Enjoy.
