Better Than Ezra's, "A Lifetime"
The Lyrics:
Ally woke up 8A.M, graduation day.
Got into a car, crashed along the way.
The song starts off with the report of a girl's death in a car accident.

Better Than Ezra's, "American Dream"
The Lyrics:
For twenty years, he worked corporate.
He planned to early retire.
His CEO, he stole a billion dollars.
Now, he's working at Denny's,
hoping for a raise.
What a jerk, that CEO.

Better Than Ezra's, "Good"
The Lyrics:
Looking around the house,
hidden behind the window and the door.
Searching for signs of life,
but there's nobody home.
Well, maybe I'm just too sure,
or maybe I'm just too frightened by the sound of it.
Pieces of note fall down,
but the letter said,
It was good living with you; aha, it was good.
The guy gets up and suddenly discovers his love left him.

Better Than Ezra's, "Rosealia"
The Lyrics:
You say "No, no, no."
The fighting has left you tired.
You say "No, no, no."
But the hurting goes on.
The title character is an abuse victim.
