Contingency Plan lyrics

NOBODY SPECIAL
(Words & Music by Gary Schutt)

Everyday all the same stuff is bringing me down
All your time spent never with me and your runnin’ round
You keep me hangin’ on a line while I’m sittin’ at home
Always working or out with your friends and I’m all alone

You didn’t want to be like everyone else
You didn’t want to be just a flash in the pan
You’re nobody special
Given the title of another ex-girlfriend

Friday night I’m playin’ out with the band an its loud
Too classy with your nose in the air to be seen with my crowd
Never enough when I get it from you it’s a shame
Like your doin’ me a favor makin’ me out to blame

You didn’t want to be like everyone else
You didn’t want to be just a flash in the pan
You’re nobody special
Given the title of another ex-girlfriend

You never ever thought it would end up like this
You never really thought there would be an end
You’re no body special
Granted the title of another ex-girlfriend

Nothing I can say to you will
Make you see my point of view
This is another ex girlfriend song
But this one is for you!

You didn’t want to be like everyone else
You didn’t want to be just a flash in the pan
You’re nobody special
Given the title of another ex-girlfriend

You never ever thought it would end up like this
You never really thought there would be an end
You’re no body special
Granted the title of another ex-girlfriend
You’re nobody, nobody, nobody special to me

LET ME LET YOU GO
(Words & music by Gary Schutt)


You come off like a saint
I know that you ain’t so innocent
Devil in disguise
I see it in your eyes
You play the game
My soul you maimed
No penitence
You don’t realize
The damage you’ve done inside

I left you face down with no regrets
I left you with reason
I left you wanting more
You can’t understand why
It feels like such a lie
You lost out when you let me let you go

You fly like an angel with golden wings
You Jezebel
Don’t try to front me
You’ve no integrity
You suckered me in
I cannot begin to speak my hate
You strung me on and on
Demon be gone

I left you face down with no regrets
I left you with reason
I left you wanting more
You can’t understand why
It feels like such a lie
You lost out when you let me let you go

If you give your heart to no one you will never know
If you hide your feelings they will never show
I’m such a fool for loving you

It’s such a shame
Yeah, you’re to blame
This head game has come to an end
And you’ve lost my friend

I left you face down with no regrets
I left you with reason
I left you wanting more
You can’t understand why
It feels like such a lie
You lost out when you let me let you go
Let me let you go
Let you go

BETTER
(words & music by Gary Schutt)


How could I been so blind?
Was warned by your friends and mine
I never saw the signs till I opened my eyes
Been spiteful
Insightful
Feel like I’m still in high school
The drama
Too common
I’ll get over you soon
Since I let you go

Now I’m free to find someone better
Now I’m free to find something better
Now that we’re no longer together
I’m free to find someone better than you

Our fighting
Igniting
Inspires my songwriting
Disrespect
Neglected
Work all day
Drink all night
Should have known from the start that you’d be breaking my heart
It’s cheesy but so easy to rip your world apart

Now I’m free to find someone better
Now I’m free to find something better
Now that we’re no longer together
I’m free to find someone better than you

There’s something I must say
You are the one to blame
Everyone knows its true

Why do i miss you
Now I’m free to find someone better
Now I’m free to find something better
Now that we’re no longer together
I’m free to find someone better than you

There’s something I must say
I cuss you everyday
The pain you put me through
Why can’t I hate you

Bitch (with a capital “C”)
(Words & music by Gary Schutt)


You suck my energy with your stupid drama
You make my stomach turn and deprive me of sleep
You mistake my kindness for weakness
It’s absurd
You don’t hear me when I try to get a word

Just between you and me
You’re a bitch with a capital C
You brought me down to my knees
You’re a bitch with a capital C

You take my self esteem with a smile on your face
You have a way of making me seem always wrong
You play with my emotions and leave me for dead
You push me untill I’m close to the edge

Just between you and me
You’re a bitch with a capital C
You brought me down to my knees
You’re a bitch with a capital C

You never made me feel
Good enough for you

I don’t want sympathy
Just some satisfaction
I can’t let go even though you hurt me so
It’s like a prison cell I can’t escape from
You’re so full of shit
Stop fucking with my head

Just between you and me
You’re a bitch with a capital C
You brought me down to my knees
You’re a bitch with a capital C
Why does it have to be
You’re a bitch with a capital C
Why don’t you just concede
You’re a bitch with a capital C

LOVE ME FOR ME
(words & music by Gary Schutt)


Ideally we set our hearts up to fail
Searching for perfection
We are all innocent by default
And destroyed by affection
Letting go of your faults
It’s only an illusion
Can the heart and mind really get along?
Prelude for confusion

Love me for me
Not who you want me to be
And I’ll never do you wrong
Love me for me
No one is everything
And you aren’t all that strong

If we see with the eyes of lust
Then I am also guilty
They say that beauty is skin deep
Then why are you so ugly?

Love me for me
Don’t try to change a thing
‘Cause I am me not you
Love me for me
Who do you think you are?
The truth isn’t always true

We all are puppets in symmetry
We all are imperfect
We all are liars unto ourselves
But can we learn to love?

Love me for me
Not who you want me to be
And I’ll never do you wrong
Love me for me
No one is everything
And you aren’t all that strong

Love me for me 
Don’t try to change a thing
‘Cause I am me not you
Love me for me
Who do you think you are?
The truth isn’t always true

DOG
(Words & music By Gary Schutt)


You and I been together for so long
We always swore that nothing could go wrong
Nothing would be fine
But then I wouldn’t have this song

Who you talking to when I’m on the phone
Who you gonna give another bone
Who you cuddlin with when you’re all alone
I think that something aint right

Been sleepin alone every night
I know if I speak up will start a fight

You love your dog more than you love me
Now I’m the one neglected baby cant you see
Gimme some attention girl I’m beggin’ you please
You love that dog more than you love me

For years and years I’ve put up with some crap
Instead of me on top of you, it’s on your lap
My patience has run out and I’m about to snap
Since you got that thing we’ve drifted apart
Yeah it’s a cliché but it’s breaking by heart
I might be jealous but you’re taking it too far
(I don’t even spend that much time with my guitar)

You love your dog more than you love me
Now I’m the one neglected baby cant you see
Gimme some attention girl I’m beggin’ you please
You love that dog more than you love me
You love your dog oh yes you do
Its really quite pathetic babe from my point of view
It’s about as annoying as having the fucking flu
You’re in love with your dog, and I’m resenting you

Your dog is bout as big as a baby T-rex
Your dog is lying on the bed while we’re having sex
Your dog is barking at me when I give you a peck
I’m getting sick and tired of it I must confess
Just look at that mess!

Now I’ve done nothing to deserve a demotion
I’ve given lots of blood & sweat & faith & devotion
It’s just another obstacle to get in our way
So take him to the park and baby have a nice day
You love your dog more than you love me
And I’m still neglected baby cant you see
Show some attention girl I’m beggin’ you please
If you love that dog then you don’t need me

I’ve adopted a cat, what do you have to say?
Yeah, I’m playing with that pussy every night and day
I’ve been second best for so long, why the hell should I stay?
I’ve adopted a cat, but you love your dog
(Tell this thing to stop licking my face!)

DOWN
(Words & music by Gary Schutt)


Don’t know what’s going on inside you mind
I don’t care to read between the lines
So push me way back
Keep your distance
It’s so unfair
Your resistance

I don’t want to keep waiting
This senseless time is frustrating
You can’t avoid this feeling
It brings me down

I can’t read your mind
Well I’m no psychic
This guessing game has made me so sick
You’re like a novel with all blank pages
I’ve had enough of your mental stages

I don’t want to keep waiting
This senseless time is frustrating
You can’t avoid this feeling
It brings me down

So here I am now
Near the end
You’ve tried my patience with no amends
So I move on from all the pain
With nothing to loose and all to gain
I don’t want to keep waiting
This senseless time is frustrating
You can’t avoid this feeling
It brings me down

I can’t go on debating
This love is nauseating
You’re the Queen and I’m the clown
You bring me down

WAIT TILL SUNDAY
(words & music by Gary Schutt)


Got butterflies
Jello thighs
Hands that shake
And a heart that beats to fast
I’m impatient
Stupefied
Hysterical
And I don’t think I’ll last today

It started out like this
I cant wait for that kiss
If all persists

I just can’t wait till Sunday
It’s only two days away
Na na na na-na na

I’m excited
Delighted
Invited emotions overdue
It’s stressless
I’m breathless I confess
Just to see you again

It started out like this
I cant wait for that kiss
If all persists

I just can’t wait till Sunday
It’s only two days away
Na na na na-na na

I can’t stand two days waiting
Mental anticipating
I know it sounds so cliché
I just can’t wait till Sunday comes

Yeah I’m skeptical
A concrete wall
But most of all
What am I to do?
You fascinate
Intoxicate
Exhilarate
Think I’m gonna fall for you

Warm fuzzies
Let’s begin
The kiss that breathes you in
I want your touch
Can’t get enough

I just can’t wait till Sunday
It’s only one day away
Na na na
I just can’t wait till Sunday
Friday, Saturday, Yeah
You are the blue sky all day
You chase the clouds away
I just can’t wait till Sunday
Sunday
I don’t know what else to say
I don’t know what else to say
I just can’t wait till Sunday
Sunday
I just can’t wait till Sunday

NOWHERE FAST
(Words & music by Gary Schutt)


What’s the point of writing this song?
You’re not coming back
I’ve said all I’ve had to say
It’s gotten me nowhere
And that’s a fact

I’ve poured my heart and soul on the page
And then made it a melody
I’ve labored for days and days on what to say
And it’s gotten me

Nowhere fast
Grasping on to memories past
Nowhere fast
Got to let it go at last
Nowhere fast
I’ve spent all this time and it’s gotten me nowhere fast

What’s the point in holding on?
You’ve already moved on
It’s plain to see
Nothing I’ll do or say will make and impact
So I’ll let it be

I’ve wasted another night trying to get it right
One more time
Not much left to say
If only one way to read between the lines 

And I’m Nowhere fast
Grasping on to memories past
Nowhere fast
Got to let it go at last
Nowhere fast
I’ve spent all this time and it’s gotten me nowhere fast

So I’m gonna let you go and say goodbye
Turn the page and leave it all behind

I’ve wasted another night trying to get it right
One more time
Not much left to say
If only one way to read between the line

And I’m Nowhere fast
Nowhere fast
Grasping on to memories past
Nowhere fast
Got to let you go at last
Nowhere fast
I’ve spent all this time and it’s gotten me nowhere fast

So I’m gonna let you go and say goodbye
Turn the page and leave it all behind

GOOD ENOUGH
(words & music by Gary Schutt)


A shadowed night under cloudy skies and blackened stars
I’m all alone in my head with demon’s brand new scars
Every thought is a trace of insecurity
Every second spawns a vastness between you and me

There should be no reason for the actions endured
I consider it a treason for the lack of your
Seemingly unfaithful nature and your selfishness
Apologies overdue but vanish nonetheless

You cannot heal me
And you cannot see
That I’m better off without you
Loving you is so tuff
You don’t love me good enough

I’ve given so many chances
You keep coming back
To watch you screw it up again & again & again
Never here, never near, even when you’re here
So consistently distant
And It’s perfectly clear.

You cannot heal me
And you cannot see
That I’m better off without you
Loving you is so tuff
You don’t love me good enough

Let me set the scene for you
Two friends fell lovers in a year or two
We had a long and bumpy ride
That steepened downhill over time
Trust and love birthed insecure
That neither party could endure
We’ve broken off and on for years
A million memories and lots of tears

I never expected a lot from you
But what I got just wouldn’t do
Give a little take a lot
I’ve given much more than I got
How can you expect to last when
You keep living in my past
Fingers pointed, both to blame
And no one winning at this game


You cannot heal me
And you cannot see
That I’m better off without you
Loving you is so tuff
Hey
You don’t make me happy
And you won’t let me breathe
But I’m so sane without you
Letting go has been rough
But you will never love me good enough
Hey

TENFOLD
(Words & music by Gary Schutt)


What goes around comes around
Do unto me
I’ll will undo you
Payback’s a bitch and so am I
Can you read between the lines?

I will haunt you
I will taunt you
I will scold you
Tenfold

Bad to the bone since the day I was born
Mess with the bull and you’ll get the horns

I will haunt you
I will taunt you
I will scold you
Tenfold

Lies, deceit, truths untold
It will come back to you tenfold

Common threads through history’s past
Your next breath will be your last

I will haunt you
I will taunt you
I will scold you
Tenfold
I will kill you
It will chill you
Blood boiling cold
Tenfold
