"Ready... Set... No!!!!" as written by and Jeffrey Ernest Rosenstock....
I never was a drinker and now I'm an alcoholic, drinking just to fall asleep and hiding my smiles 'cause you can probably smell that shit on my teeth.
Drink it down, golden brown my sweet whiskey.
You feel nice on the inside, so nice on the inside.
Nice on the inside, so let's get pissed.

I never cried at movies and now I cry at the Simpsons.
I hide the tears so you can't see, and I wipe my eyes and pretend that I'm just falling asleep.
Don't come around, I've already destroyed everything.
I'm not coming outside. I'm not coming outside.
I've blown my only chance, so don't make me do anything.

Because from the moment it was up to us to break the rules and disobey, I'd trade it all in for an easy answer to let me raise my fist and say "No!"

I'm a target audience.
Paranoia setting in.
I can't have a conversation.
You're just like the other kids.
I'm well aware that they monitor my thoughts.
And if you count on me for anything, I'm sorry, but you're totally fucked.
You're fucked. Everybody's out of luck.
I'm just a kid who wants to get drunk.
It's nighttime. Look outside.
It's nighttime. Look outside.
It's nighttime. Look outside.
Let's go drink 'til we can't feel shit.

From the moment it was up to us to break the rules and disobey, I'd trade it all in for an easy answer to let me raise my fist and say "No!"

I gotta find something that's wrong with everything so now I'm all alone.
Forget solutions, I'll be at the bar drinking forgetting everything I know.

Then when the record stores start falling then it's up to us to break rules.
Stop sitting in your room watching advertisements and disobey.
Put down the bottle, get a megaphone and shout it to the world:
No way. No way.
No thanks.

    General CommentJeff: After ASOB decided not to tour or play for a little while, I was freaking out about what the hell was I gonna do with my life and I started developing these really weird tendencies. One night I decided it'd be a good idea to make a list of these problems I kept blowing up out of proportion and that it would solve everything. It didn't solve anything at all, but it turned into this song. On a lighter note, I wrote the music to this while searching the streets of midtown Manhattan for my grandmother after she wandered off during a family get-together.
