Radio Show …
 first aired in May of 2008. It was the nation’s first radio show that allowed listeners to read the lyrics as the songs play. Teen guest DJs suggest songs that either inspire positive  self-esteem, equality, a healthy planet, peace, diversity or never giving up. After each song we discuss the message of the lyrics and how these songs can help youth, all over the world, choose to change things about themselves that may be holding them back from a life free of not feeling “good enough” and the self-bullying that results from feeling that way. 

If you’d like to suggest songs for us to play and discuss, email the lyrics to:  PreventBullyingNow@heyugly.org. If we use it on our show, we’ll send you a FREE T-shirt.

Our theme song is CHANGE YOUR MIND by Sister Hazel.  We love this band!
h o o s e   o   h a n g e  streams worldwide on WRHC-FM

WAKE UP CALL by Scott Stapp

One day the bridge is going to break
One day the world will stand still
The sky will fall the earth will shake
There’s just so much a heart can take

This is a wake up call
How many times before you lose it all
You’re like a cannon ball
Breaking walls
This is a wake up call
Before there’s no one left to catch your fall
But you can change it all
If you want to…

Sometimes life is so insane
Sometimes we don’t know what to feel
Does God help us when we pray
Or do we face it all alone, all alone

This is a wake up call
How many times before you lose it all
You’re like a cannon ball
Breaking walls
This is a wake up call
Before there’s no one left to catch your fall
But you can change it all
If you want to…

If you want to…
If you want to…
If you want to…

This is a wake up call
How many times before you lose it all
This is your wake up call
Before there’s no one left to catch your fall
But you can change it all
If you want to…
If you want to…
If you want to…
If you want to…
This is your wake up call
And you can change it all
If you want to…
If you want to…
If you want to…
If you want to…
This is your wake up call
And you can change it all
If you want to…

READY TO LOVE by Scott Stapp

I’ve seen the fire
I’ve felt the flame
I’ve been to hell and back
I’m the one to blame
I held on to every single lie
And I threw the truth away
But the hardest part was to forgive
Myself for all that pain

Now I’m ready to love
I’m ready to change
Finally steady enough
To do whatever it takes
I’ve lost count of second chances
From all the wrong I’ve done
Now I’m ready, I’m ready to love

I know I’ve broken
Every promise that I’ve made
Selfish and reckless
These scars will never fade
You had every single chance
To walk away and let me go
But you’re standing here by my side
And I want you to know

That I’m ready to love
I’m ready to change
Finally steady enough
To do whatever it takes
I’ve lost count of second chances
From all the wrong I’ve done
Now I’m ready, I’m ready

To let myself feel again
To finally let someone in
To lift my head up to the sky
No longer asking why

Now I’m ready to love
I’m ready to change
Finally steady enough
To do whatever it takes
I’ve lost count of second chances
From all the wrong I’ve done
Now I’m ready, I’m ready
Yes I’m ready, I’m ready… to love

I’m ready to love
I’m ready to love
I’m ready, I’m ready to love

CRIMINAL by Scott Stapp

I listened alone all night
I listened for what seems is no way out
No windows to allow a sound or light to feed my mind,
Slowly I bury myself alive, alive
I’m so sorry, so sorry I opened that door
I’m just searching, I am searching for reasons why
I hear knocking, knocking on doors I have closed
The man you’re describing has got to be make believe
No you’re not insane, no no, Yes it was me
Why can’t you see me for what I’ve become
Not who I used to be
I’m no criminal
My life’s stuck in rewind
Look the other way
Big mistakes I made
So why do I keep turning back to see the flames
When ashes still burn in my eyes
Oh the pain
Said I’m so sorry, so sorry I opened that door
I’m just searching, I am searching for reasons why
I hear knocking, knocking on doors I have closed
The man you’re describing has got to be make believe
No you’re not insane, no no, Yes it was me
Why can’t you see me for what I’ve become
Not who I used to be
I’m no criminal, no criminal
Not caught red handed, busted
I’m not in chains, not in chains
Oh Why can’t you see me for what I’ve become
Not who I used to be
There’s no criminal, no criminal, no criminal, left in me
In me…. Can’t you see
Why is the day so many follow narrows the path I soon will swallow
Blinding eyes can’t see my way
Can you help me please
I’m no criminal, no criminal
Not caught red handed, busted
I’m not in chains, not in chains
Oh Why can’t you see me for what I’ve become
Not who I used to be
I’m no criminal, no criminal, no criminal, left in me
Why, Why, Why
I’m no Criminal
Why, Why, Why
‘cuz I’m no, I’m no
No Criminal…
I listened alone all night
I listened for what seems is no way out
No windows to allow a sound or light to feed my mind,
Slowly I bury myself alive

SLOW SUICIDE by Scott Stapp from Proof of Life album

I’m not evil
No matter what you think of me
I’m just human
There’s a part of you that’s just like me

I have fallen
I have broken every piece
Heard heaven calling
I could only reach this from my knees
and now I believe

[Chorus:]
I can’t let this life pass me by
In a blink of an eye it ends
I can’t let my tomorrows decide
What I am in this life
It’s like committing slow suicide

It’s no secret
I can’t pretend, I can’t forget
What I’ve done
Every day I live with the consequences
I let it beat me, let it kick me, let it throw me to the floor
Those days are over
I’m moving forward
It can’t hurt me
and now I believe

[Chorus]

So many days I chose to suffer, living a lie
So many ways I chose to die
Oh, had to feel less than nothing
Shame and suffering
To see with my own eyes
I wasn’t living
I was committing
Committing slow suicide
Committing slow suicide

And now I believe

[Chorus]

Committing slow suicide
Committing slow suicide
