We’re gonna move on We’re gonna move on And you’re gonna Get what’s yours We’re gonna walk on We’re gonna walk on And you’re gonna Get what’s yours We’re gonna stride on We’re gonna stride on Because we know what we need And we’re picking up speed We’re gonna live on We’re gonna live on Because we know what we need And we’re picking up speed Salt to the ice Left take the right Salt to the ice Left takes the right

What are the good things in your life? Who do you want to be? What don’t you take for granted? What don’t you take for granted? What are the bad things in your life? Who do you hate to be? What do you take for granted? What do you take for granted? To see light So simple And I’m not afraid What is the joy you find in life? What do you want to see? What is to live and let live? What is to live and let live? What is the judgement in your life? What are your enemies? What don’t you live and let live? What don’t you live and let live? To see light So simple And I’m not afraid Face to face With sudden deafness Face to face With sudden deafness Will it come back today? Will it come back none? Feedback static noise and hum Face to face With sudden deafness Face to face With sudden deafness Will it come back today? Will it come back none? Feedback static noise and hum What is the faith left in your life? What do you call relief? What will you die believing? What will you die believing? To see light So simple And I’m not afraid

Total Chaos 04:23
Total chaos there’s no lines Nowhere to keep And everything nothing’s unique Too attached the slowest suicide The past moves on And tomorrow’s overdrawn All the judging criticize The hypocrite Cries alone with no remit Time was right the action too obsessed The moment’s gone It didn’t come without a warning So impatient so afraid to die Always in debt Always weighed down by regret Too much haste and too unwise Won’t see it through Tried to care but then withdrew Up the hill and still more steps to climb The dream gone stray All your life just fades away Find your breath boy redefine Your right from wrong Lose your words and be the echo

Paper View 03:47
I don’t remember what I said to you But I can buy it back on paper view I don’t remember how to talk to you But I can buy it back on paper view I don’t remember how to love you But I can buy it back on paper view Esta é a vida através da tela Esta é a vida através da tela Esta é a vida através da tela Esta é a vida através da tela I don’t remember how to touch you But I can buy it back on paper view I don’t remember how to pleasure you But I can buy it back on paper view I don’t remember how to love you But I can buy it back on paper view Esta é a vida através da tela Esta é a vida através da tela

Forever Numb 02:25
So be forever numb Go on be forever numb We’ve got no more words To say to you tonight We’ve got no more words To say to you tonight If you can’t make you happy There’s nothing we can do If you can make you happy There’s nothing we can’t do So be forever numb Go on be forever numb We’ve got no more words To say to you tonight We’ve got no more words To say to you tonight If you can’t make you happy There’s nothing we can do If you can make you happy There’s nothing

Out of touch ignoring world problems Singing songs about yourself instead Try to reach out to a bigger audience There’s no time for the words that you said Drums and bass and guitar Doesn’t matter when we’re Gunning ourselves in the streets God I love my Beatles and punk rock But it doesn’t seem to mean a thing Out of touch ignoring world problems Taking pictures of yourself instead Try to share them with a bigger audience There’s no likes and no comments were said Hips and lips and a big butt doesn’t matter When we’re bombing on kids in the East God I love my heels and my nylons baby But it doesn’t seem to mean a thing

Grim Reaper 01:04
Grim reaper got a hold on me Grim reaper can’t carry me
8.
Well we’re done with work And we’re done with school And we’re always right And we’re no one’s fool right now I’m not breathing enough I’m not breathing enough I’m not breathing enough I’m not breathing enough I’m not breathing enough We got so much time And we’re looking for a fight We got places to be And new lovers every night I’m not breathing enough I’m not breathing enough I’m not breathing enough I’m not breathing enough I’m not breathing enough Bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah Now we’re running around With no regrets And we hide from the past Because we know it gets us down I’m not breathing enough I’m not breathing enough I’m not breathing enough I’m not breathing enough I’m not breathing enough But man something’s wrong God I feel offset Because I feel so void Like there’s no like there’s no soul left at all To be in need of love again Not me, not me, I don’t believe in anything Bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah Bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah

Versa 03:20
Too busy living in tomorrow Too busy living in tomorrow Too busy living in tomorrow Too busy living in tomorrow Misguided by voices no longer believed Misguided by voices no longer believed Misguided by voices no longer believed Misguided by voices no longer believed Never the young man Back then Ah versa versa versa Rid my wind Never the young man Back then Ah versa versa versa Rid my wind

Damned if you do And damned if you don’t Prayed all your life Just to lose all your hope And when you can’t heal the pain Forget your name Forget your name Said that you’d do But know that you won’t Felt that you could But then you let go And when your thoughts are filled with shame Forget your name Forget your name Chasing the light But facing the dark Longing for change But losing the spark When everything feels the same Forget your name Forget your name This name meant everything Its age was the best But now a name means nothing And age means less Just wanted to be someone This name meant everything Its age was the best But now a name means nothing And age means less Just wanted to be someone

about

Forget Your Name was written and recorded after Matthew McGarry mysteriously lost all of the hearing in his left ear due to something called sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL). Despite the prognosis of possibly not getting any of his hearing back, it miraculously returned after 10 days of total left-ear deafness. Because there was a point in which he didn’t think he'd be able to enjoy music ever again, the logical thing to do once he regained his hearing was to record an album celebrating sound and how good music can make people feel.
