about

Slipping On My Tears: A Collection Of Weepy Emo Crap sees Garth pouring out his scarred heart. You can download the entire album for free, because money would only make him sad.

A note for people who actually know what "emo" means: I am using the modern term, which means "any crap that has some dude crying, and gives him an excuse to wear makeup." Sometimes the songs rock a bit, but they never approach the hardcore that spawned emo in the first place.

Track Name: Stranded
I'll never be stranded with someone
I'll always be stranded alone
never a hand to hold in mine
and help me find my way back home

What I would give
to have someone along
to be my incentive
to keep pressing on

I'm always mad about something
I wish someone were mad about me
someone to share in life's pains and
to calm me when I am angry

I'm furious
when I see two people argue
but still curious if
I could have that too

I can not see
beyond my two eyes
but I perceive
that time is slipping by

Nothing is worse than to realize
that you're gonna die alone
Track Name: Adore You
I adore you
you ignore me
I implore you
to explore me

what will you see when you look inside?
only that I choose to hide

I don't mean to bore you
but you hold power o'er me
and I am sure you
know your beauty floors me

all that I see is an empty stare
where once was true welfare

Don't believe all you imagine to be
Your mind and your heart are built to deceive
Only trust the one who has no use for you
She will speak the truth

As all I do is for you
only your love can cure me
pray tell me wherefore you
have resolved to abhor me

I've come to see that I cannot win
I await your final judgement

Let me speak before you
hand your verdict on poor me
If I could restore you
would you...?
Track Name: The Sun Will Still Rise
It's been forever since I've seen you
maybe longer before next time
something tells me this is the only
chance I'll have to tell you all about this love of mine

Please don't say you have to go
To wake up at dawn's light
The sun will still rise tomorrow
if you stay the night

I know I should have spoken sooner
I'm sorry if you are surprised
but I've always had these feelings
ever since we met, and I saw your eyes, they tantalize

Please don't say you have to go
To wake up at dawn's light
The sun will still rise tomorrow
if you stay the night

One more embrace for the road
gentle so I won't forget
let me feel your body close to mine
can this moment last one more minute, oh please, just one more minute

Please don't say you have to go
To wake up at dawn's light
The sun will still rise tomorrow
if you stay the night
Track Name: If You Let Me Go
When at look right at you
and you look right through me
I wonder if I can catch you
or you are after me

I know I shouldn't worry
but it presses on me so
what in the world will I do
if you let me go?

If you let me go
If you let me go
If you let me go

If you let me go
I don't know what I'll do
Maybe I'll dream of you

My dreams are growing madder
more realistic all the time
Is it a sign of the future
a peak at the sublime?

You say you'll never leave me
but something tells me 'no'
Oh why must I struggle
with the thought of letting go?

If you let me go
If you let me go
If you let me go

If you let me go
I don't know what I'll do
Maybe I'll dream of you

That's just what I'll do
Track Name: Behind The Laughter
I confessed my life to her
I wanted to hide forever
She took it well, however
With few tears behind the laughter

I thought it rude at first
to meet my secret with a smirk
but then I thought of how she
kept away discomforting
feelings

never facing them head on
a little joke or silly song
to get her through
get her through

but this time it wasn't
the normal kind of disrespect
she seemed to honestly believe
my ambitions should be received
by no one greater than the man
who can't hear, see, or talk back
to anyone

I confessed my life to her
I wanted to hide forever
She took it well, however
With few tears behind the laughter
Track Name: Half Past Forever
I remember the last time I saw you
I think you were wearing blue
Not that I noticed anything
I was too busy looking away

you looked so lovely where you sat
but I didn't see that

my job is to pretend
I don't see my ex-girlfriend

so I'll see you
I'll see you
I guess I'll see you
at half past forever
at half past forever
at half past forever
at half past forever

I try to forget the good times we had
but I only forget the bad
'you're nothing to me' is what I say
each and every day

I know I'm lying
but I have to keep trying

I know that I have to understand
you have a new man

I've got to be convincing
it doesn't affect me

so I'll see you
I'll see you
I guess I'll see you
at half past forever
at half past forever
at half past forever
at half past forever

I cannot fathom the day
when you can be replaced

if only it were true
that I don't love you

I still think that maybe you'll return
I don't think I'll ever learn

if our time is truly done
then I don't want anyone

so I'll see you
I'll see you
I guess I'll see you
at half past forever
at half past forever
at half past forever
at half past forever
Track Name: Shoebox
You've got a mighty fine collection of cut-out hearts.
And I've got an empty shoebox.
Track Name: You And Me
When it began
it wasn't romance
but I would stand
waiting for the chance
to take your hand
and ask you for this dance
if only just to
have something to do

but I somehow knew
there was something more
I looked at you
and saw what I searched for
I had no clue
that I could so adore
I had no plan
it just happened

You and me
I guess were meant to be
everybody thinks its so
If you and me
are a match that all can see
then why am I the last to know?

Some years go by
and I still haven't spoken
this heart of mine
has no chance to be broken
keep it inside
for fear you'll think I'm joking
I just can't risk
the chance that I'll be dismissed

You and me
I guess were meant to be
but I'm afraid of letting you know
it's been so long
that you may have forgotten
what I was like before I entered limbo

I had a dream once
that I was real strong
I told you how I've felt all along
When I awoke I was terrified
that I'd actually revealed what I've held inside

As it began
I will keep my mouth shut
and if I can
I will never ask what
are your plans
in matters of love
I've come to accept
that I am inept

You and me
I know were meant to be
but another you and a different me
We're not the same
as those who play the game
and live and love so happily

you and me
stopped by philosophy
we think too much about the nature of forever
no you and me
can never let it be
that's why they know we will end up together
Track Name: You Bought My Heart
You bought my heart
You bought my heart

You break it, you buy it
Don't try to deny it
I saw you eyeing it
with buying intent

No discount for you
You'll pay in full
I can't keep these in stock
They are so expensive

You bought my heart
You bought my heart

You've broken it, you've bought it
Don't think I haven't thought if
You and I could be an item
I would place us on a high shelf
And no one could find us there
Only spiders and the air
We would live eternally
We'd only have you and me
And that would be all we need
We'll never have to fall down
Track Name: Dreams Slip Away
When I'm with you I begin to feel
that you are my one true ideal
But when I'm alone my mind tells me
to let it go; it can never be

I close my eyes and all my dreams slip away
That's 'cause I only see you during the day

I confess my heart and you feel it too
But that's not enough to see us through
You have your needs and I have mine
so we decide to bide our time

The sun will rise and all my dreams slip away
That's 'cause I will only have you for today [voice solo]

Our future is uncertain
But we have already closed the curtain
If we can't last forever
there's no sense in being together

Why must I watch all my dreams slip away?
Can't we decide to live within today?

I'm sick of the monotony of this action
the unlived life is not worth examining

I don't care how long it lasts
I want us to rewrite the past
Any future that's you with me
is the best present I could receive

I won't stand by and watch my dreams slip away
if we're doomed tomorrow, then why not live today?
Track Name: Circles
I cry, and I try
to live with all the pain
I rebuke those I knew
and yet she remains

She tells me things
that I wish to hear
'You are the most comforting monster'

She is lost in circles of me
She is lost in circles of my being
She is lost in circles
She is lost

But I never wanted to need you
I never wished to tie you down
If only I hadn't led you on
I wouldn't find you swirling around

I cry, and I try
to live without her arms
I can't understand
why I won't resist her warmth

She is lost in circles of me
I can feel her heart bleeding me dry
She is lost in circles
She is lost

She whimpered, she sighed
She didn't say goodbye
She slinked away
and hid inside

Just because you're a ghost of my past
Doesn't mean you get to haunt my future
Just because you're a ghost of my past
Doesn't mean you get to haunt my future
Just because you're a ghost of my past
Doesn't mean you get to haunt my future

You are the most comforting monster
Track Name: Crushing Monotony
I had this girl
she was a dream
nothing could come in between

Our hearts were one
our lives were, too
Just smile was all she had to do

She was never more alive than the day
she pushed my love away

and I knew
that was it
I was never going to become him
the one
to save her
from the crushing monotony
of having somebody else

Then I moved on
I tried again
I found a lover in a friend

We had some good times
and some were better
anything she'd want to do I'd let her

My morality turned her on
but she never meant to stay very long

and I knew
that was it
I was never going to become him
the one
to save her
from the crushing monotony
of having somebody else

and now there's you
and you're with me
and we're as happy as can be

and now my life
is sure to change
when I am left again

because I know
this is it
I am never going to become him
the one
who saves you
from the crushing monotony
of having somebody else

anybody other than me
Track Name: Give It Up
Get over it
Give up, just quit
You're making a fool of yourself by trying

Get off the phone
no one's at home
you'll be alone until the day you die

Listen to me
it's hopeless you see
Nobody wants to be your lover

You're missing the gist
you'll never be kissed
by any woman besides your mother

Give it up (it's useless)
Give it up (you're pitiful)
Give it up (you won't be noticed)
Give it up (by the beautiful)
Give it up (they don't care)
Give it up (if you're not there)
Give it up (it's sad that you)
Give it up (can never be like them)


you cannot hide
the privileged have spies
they see right away that you don't have a clue


nowhere to run
it must be no fun
to know everyone is better than you


Looking outside
you look at their lives
you'd rather die than to be just like them

and they refuse
to look at you
there is no way that you will ever fit in


Give it up (you're worthless)
Give it up (you're ugly too)
Give it up (not to mention)
Give it up (nobody likes you)
Give it up (jump off a bridge)
Give it up (give in to them)
Give it up (it's sad that you)
Give it up (can never be like them)


All of their words
flying like birds
they call you a nerd and you know it's not true

because they must grasp
at straws in their hands
you understand that they can't accept you


Give it up (they're nothing)
Give it up (not worth the pain)
Give it up (they're too scared to)
Give it up (stand out in the rain)
Give it up (in the end)
Give it up (they're not friends)
Give it up (it's sad that they)
Give it up (can never be like you)

Get over it
Give up, just quit
