Sleep in late a day a week a year.

Open my eyes, how'd I get here?

Order food and turn on Oprah.

Things are clean in Canada!



I think I just might -- PREFER THAT

I think I just might -- REPEAT THAT

I think I just might -- REPRESS THAT

I think I just might

I think I just might -- VERUCA

I think I just might -- SALT THAT

I think I just might -- CHANGE THE CHANNEL

I think I just might



Thieves are on the loose again, yeah.

Thought you were my friend; you are not.

Find what your heart is after.

Bite your tongue you fucking bastard.



I think I just might -- PREFER THAT

I think I just might -- REPEAT THAT

I think I just might -- REPRESS THAT

I think I just might

I think I just might -- FREE THAT

I think I just might -- OBSESS THAT

I think I just might -- SAID BLOW IT OUT YOUR ASS (as one syllable)

I think I just might



oo-oo-oo-hoo



I'm taking Europe with me

So they'll be one less soul to rescue.

You come with me

So they'll find two less freaks at sea.

(taking) Europe with me,

So they'll be one less soul to rescue.

You come with me

So they'll find two less freaks at sea.

    General CommentThis is a good break up song.

    "Thieves are on the loose again, yeah/Thought you were my friend; you are not/Find what your heart is after/Bite your tongue you fucking bastard." Those are some of the best lines ever. I know who I want to sing this song to.

    New York Mining Disaster 1996

    I'm going down
    And I don't know when
    I'm coming up again
    Oh, I'm going down said I don't know when
    I'm coming up again
    When did I slip?
    Where did I miss you?
    When did I trip over you?
    And when will I fly over you?

    Oh, I'm going down
    And I don't know when
    I'm coming up again

    Dark has come
    I'm not afraid though
    I can't become anyone
    And I don't warn anyone, no

    I'm going down
    And I don't know when
    I'm coming up again
    Oh, I'm going down
    Said I don't know when
    I'm coming up again

    There was a love
    I shot it down
    There was a trust
    I shot it down
    There was a life
    I shot it down

    Disinherit

    Cut the back
    Pull the stuffing
    Cut the girl
    Down to nothing

    Feed the boy
    In the mattress
    Disinfect the house
    Disinherit

    And it's creeping up my spine
    And it's clutching at my throat
    And it's siezing my tongue
    And I'm numb

    And it's feeding on my face
    And it's foaming at the mouth
    And it's gnawing on my bones
    Wrapped in foam

    And he's rolling up his sleeve
    And he needs me
    And he's memorizing me
    And he's making his mark
    And he's making his mark

    Stop the car
    Still the engine
    Save your best until now
    Dig your nails in

    Volcano Girls


    Leave me lying here
    'Cause I don't wanna go

    Tell me, tell me what you really want from me
    You gotta let me know
    I'm falling off and I need you terribly
    One down and one to go

    Volcano Girls, we really can't be beat
    Warm us up and watch us blow
    But now and then we fail and we admit defeat
    We're falling off, we are watered down and fully grown

    Leave me lying here
    'Cause I don't wanna go

    A million miles of running and I hit the wall
    I bounce back and I run some more
    But this is it, I'm giving up, I'm calling quits
    So get down and meet me on the floor

    Way to go, way to flip off everyone
    I steal your thunder then I try to bolt
    But I could stand a little pity now and then
    I'm falling off, I am watered down and fully grown

    I told you about the seether before
    You know the one that's neither or nor
    Well here's another clue if you please
    The seether's Louise
    1. . 2. . 3. . Woah!

    Leave me lying here
    Cause I don't wanna go
    Leave me, leave me, leave me
    Go. . .I don't wanna
    Go. . .I don't wanna go


    Don't Make Me Prove It

    Zero, one, two, three, four days without you
    Eight, nine. . .now we're five times two

    Words won't do
    Words won't do it
    Words can't stay true
    Words won't get me through it

    Honey please, seize me
    I know what I need
    Plan B, some security

    Words won't do
    Words won't do it
    Words can't stay true
    Words won't get me through it
    Don't make me prove it

    In the heat of the waiting
    When I'm starting to stall
    I can see what you're saying
    But I don't hear you at all
    I don't hear you at all

    Words won't do
    Words won't do it
    Words can't stay true
    Words won't get me through it
    Don't make me prove it


    Awesome

    Goodbye 25
    You were a good year for the girls
    Goodbye 25
    You'll be the goldfinch
    I'm the Harpies

    There's something in unity
    Forget humility
    Oh, what's coming over me
    Is awesome, awesome
    God forgive me
    I know it's so awesome, awesome
    Heaven help me
    I know it's a fine place to be

    Goodbye indolence
    Your filthy left hand kept me down
    Goodbye cowardice
    You'll be the Tigris
    I'm Euphrates

    There's something in the unity
    Forget humility
    Oh, what's coming over me
    Is awesome, awesome
    God forgive me
    I know it's so awesome, awesome
    Heaven help me, I know
    I know it's a fine place to be
    And it's a fine place to be

    There's something in the unity
    What's coming over me?
    Oh, go fuck humility
    We're awesome, awesome
    All the salts go, "I know it's so awesome, awesome"
    Everybody I know

    I know it's a fine place to be
    And it's a fine place to be
    Yeah it's a fine place to be
    Oh it's a fine place to be
    Yeah it's a fine place to be
    Heaven help me


    One Last Time

    I wind you up
    Then I wait here for the melancholy
    I give you up
    While you sit here in all your glory

    I never thought you would
    I never knew you could
    But now you're gone and I don't think I care

    I sold your love down the river for a bow and arrow
    Euphoria has just been here and she's looking terrible

    I've never sunk this low
    It's better if you go
    When you're nearby
    I see you and want you to try
    To love me like a monster
    One last time
    Control me like a father
    One last time
    Stay with me till I'm stronger
    One last round
    To kick me when I'm down
    Don't kick me when I'm down

    I never thought you would
    I never understood
    And that's why I'm weak and I want you to try
    To make me an example
    One last time
    To drag me through the cycle
    One last time
    To make me a disciple
    One last round
    Will get me to the ground
    You'll get me on the ground

    I'll see you around
    Yeah I'll see you around
    One last town
    And I'll see you around
    Yeah I'll see you around


    With David Bowie

    Will it ever come like it did for you?
    Like it did for you?
    I kinda heard you singing
    Oh I never knew, no I never knew

    My heart skips around
    When I hear the sound
    I'm never alone 'cause you're following me home
    I'm falling in love
    My walkman and me
    With David Bowie
    Yeah, you betcha

    With teenage medication
    Flowing through my veins
    I can face the strain
    It's causing a sensation
    That I can explain, yeah I can explain

    My heart skips around
    When I hear the sound
    I'm never alone 'cause you're following me home
    I'm falling in love
    My walkman and me
    With David Bowie

    You want me to sing
    I can, I can
    You want me to play
    I can, I can
    You wanna be in a band, I can
    I'll never be anything more
    Than I was today, than I was today, yeah

    Will it ever come like it did for you?
    Like it did for you?
    I kinda heard you singing
    Oh, I never knew
    No, I never knew

    My heart skips around
    When I hear the sound
    I'm never alone 'cause you're following me home
    I'm falling in love
    My best friend and me
    With David Bowie
    Him and me
    In a tree
    I-N-G
    yeah


    Benjamin

    Take me away
    I know I could use the rest
    I wanna clear up this mess
    I need a few days with my good sense
    I need a few good days

    Benjamin, no oh
    Benjamin, no
    Where did you go?
    No, no

    When you were falling from my tree I was not scared
    I thought you'd meet me back up there
    It never dawned on me you were home free
    It never dawned on me, no

    Benjamin, no oh
    Benjamin, no
    Where did you go?
    No, no

    You said that I could tie you down, no

    Take me away
    I know I could use the rest


    Shutterbug

    It's freezing in Bristol
    There's love on the telly
    A girl grinning at me
    She's doing the shimmy
    And she's cool
    And she's skinny
    And she's a fool for the last living rock king

    It's her will, it's her wonder
    It's her thrill, it's her way home
    She's right where she always wanted to be
    She can't change, change, change

    It's lightning in London (it's lightning in London)
    There's shit on the telly (there's shit on TV)
    You're pushing my buttons (you're pushing my buttons)
    You know how to touch me
    And I knew that you'd choose me
    By the times that you tried to refuse me

    It's your thrill, it's your wonder
    It's your will, it's you're way home
    You're right where you always wanted to be
    You can't change, change, change, whoa

    It's morning in Philly (it's morning in Philly)
    My head's feeling heavy (my head's feeling heavy)
    The sun makes me dizzy (the sun makes me sick)
    You monkey you left me
    And I know that you miss me
    By the way that you kiss and resist me

    It's my thrill, it's my wonder
    It's my will, it's my way home
    I'm right where I always dreamed I would be
    I can't change, change, change, whoa

    The Morning Sad

    Wake up and talk to me
    It's a long time since last night
    I know we said things
    The saddest things
    And I'm not sure it was wise

    When the morning's sad you don't look back
    But you sure don't look ahead

    The morning sad
    You know the morning sad
    The morning sad
    Never had it so bad, never had it so bad

    I'm writing desperate songs
    While you're fast asleep inside
    I could try to sing until it rings (I could try to bide my time to wake up )
    But my voice comes out uptight

    So when the morning's sad
    You don't relax, no you cannot clear your mind

    The morning sad
    You know the morning sad
    The morning sad
    Never had it so bad, never had it so bad

    I tried a little, I tried a lot
    I'm not a window
    And you've seen through everything I've got
    Oh, I don't think that I'll be safe until everyone's awake
    Everybody, anybody, yeah

    So wake up and talk to me
    Such a long time since last night
    I know we said things
    The maddest things
    And I'm not sure who was right

    When the morning's sad you won't attack
    'Cause you're much too weak to fight

    The morning sad
    You know the morning sad
    The morning sad
    Never had it so bad, never had it so bad
    yeah yeah yeah



    >Sound Of The Bell

    I found a place where we can talk
    I found a way to reach a middle gound
    Keep your castle in my sandbox
    Build it up so we can burn it down

    Do do do

    Anyway I love my man
    Love to keep him spinning round and round
    Keep him feeding love from my hand
    Any way to turn him inside out

    I don't wanna go down like the sunlight
    I don't wanna go out like the moonlight
    I don't wanna be found at the sound of the bell
    The sound of the bell

    Meet me up and down again
    Every time is sweeter than the last
    Once you get a taste of impact
    You're always hungry for the crash

    I don't wanna go down like the sunlight
    I don't wanna go out like the moonlight
    I don't wanna be found at the sound of the bell
    The sound of the bell

    And this is everything
    I have loved
    Yeah, I have loved

    Break
    My
    Heart

    Down, I don't wanna go down like the sunlight
    I don't wanna go out like the moonlight
    I don't wanna be found at the sound of the bell
    The sound of the bell

    I don't wanna go down like the sunlight
    I don't wanna go out like the moonlight
    I don't wanna be found at the sound of the bell
    The sound of the bell
    Oh yeah

    I don't wanna be found in the searchlight
    I don't wanna be dim like a nightlight
    I don't wanna go down like the sunlight
    I don't wanna go out like the moonlight>


    Loneliness Is Worse

    When you've had enough
    When you've got it bad enough
    And you can't let go
    When it comes to blows
    And you start to overflow
    And you can't get home

    It's a subtle kind of cruel
    It taps my spine
    Here I'm drawing a line
    I'm asking please

    Don't you wanna be happy with me?
    I'm afraid if you don't come around soon
    I'll turn sadder than you ever were
    And you'll learn loneliness is worse
    You've gotta try

    December's all alone
    And he's calling me on the phone
    But he sounds so cold
    He says he loves me so
    But how would I ever know?
    Certain words grow old

    It's a vicious kind of catch
    It sides me blind
    Now I'm out of my mind
    I wanna scream

    Don't you wanna be happy with me?
    I'm afraid if you don't come around soon
    I'll turn sadder than you ever were
    And you'll learn loneliness is worse
    You've gotta try

    Love liked me long ago
    It had a way of making everyone the same
    But how the angels (how the angels)
    Must laugh and sigh to hear me (and singing with me now)
    Pleading with you
    Needing you this way

    Oh why don't you wanna be happy with me?
    I'm afraid if you don't come around soon
    I'll turn sadder than you ever were
    And you'll learn loneliness is worse
    You've gotta try to stay mine
    All the way

    Don't you wanna be happy with me
    I'm afraid if you don't come around soon
    I'll turn sadder than you ever were

    It's gotta way of making everyone the same


    Stoneface

    Didn't notice I was gone
    'Cause you were tying up your arm, oh
    And when I stand on my head
    You never react
    I can't get you to crack
    Not one fucking smile

    But when it comes right down to it
    I'm gonna run right back to him
    I wanna be smack dab with him
    I've grown to love his stoneface so
    I've grown to love it

    A snaky goddess got my man, man
    That kinda love don't understand him, oh
    And when I swallow my gum
    You never react
    I can't get you to crack
    Not one fucking smile

    But when it comes right down to it
    I'm gonna run right back to him
    I wanna be smack dab with him
    I've grown to love his stoneface so
    I've grown to love it

    Swallow hard
    Until you
    I'll be the one to thrill you
    I'll be the first to kill you
    And if you won't die I will

    And when I short sheet the bed
    You never react
    I can't get you to crack
    Not one fucking smile

    But when it comes right down to it
    I'm gonna run right back to him
    I wanna be smack dab with him
    I've grown to love his stoneface so
    I've grown to love it


    Venus Man Trap


    Waiting for opportunity to strike
    I have been your biggest fan
    What a tour
    A little blow to cure your fright
    It's what it takes to trap a man

    Water me
    I am not a desert plant
    And there was life before you

    When I close
    Will I wear my blue eyes?
    When I open
    This time
    When I close
    Or should I wear my green eyes?
    When I open
    That shine and shine
    When I close
    Will I wear my green eyes?
    When I open
    I love you

    In my room
    Underneath the microscope
    I remember how it felt
    I thought you knew
    I was always full of hope
    But you could only help yourself

    When I close
    Will I wear my blue eyes?
    When I open
    This time
    When I close
    Or should I wear my green eyes?
    When I open, oh..
    That shine and shine
    When I close
    Will I wear my green eyes?
    When I open
    I love you

    Will I wear my blue eyes?
    This time
    Or should I wear my green eyes?
    That shine and shine

    When I close
    Will I wear my blue eyes?
    When I open
    This time
    When I close, oh..
    Or should I wear my green eyes?
    When I open, open..
    That shine and shine
    When I close
    Will I wear my green eyes?
    When I open
    I love you

    Earthcrosser

    Sleep little flea
    Little boy me
    A freak
    Am I clean (sleep, little flea, little boy me)
    I feel like men
    I feel like boys
    Think I'm peeling

    And the ringing in my ears from playing too loud
    I hear the ocean, I hear the crowd

    Disconnected
    I am unattached
    Unmade bed
    Makes me feel like a failure
    Bedroom eyes
    Lead to blurry vision
    Blurry vision
    Oh, oh

    And the ringing in my ears from playing too loud
    I hear the ocean, I hear the crowd

    Too pale, too sick, too scrawny
    But I'll sleep here anyway
    And the sheets smell like bodies
    Not mine, not yours, not yours

    It's two a.m.
    And it's quiet again
    Where's my lip gloss?

    And the ringing in my ears from playing too loud
    I hear the ocean, I hear the crowd

    Good Disaster

    I can't do this any better
    I don't have the right to try
    I can't get there any faster
    Watch the hours go by

    Weren't you in Mississippi
    Weren't you rude to my friend
    You could have covered for me
    She paid to see your band

    My mother never liked you
    My brother felt the same
    They all saw right through you
    Before I knew you were lame

    Run little one
    Away from what you started
    Something will come
    Of all tomorrow's parties
    We could have had so much fun

    I love a good disaster
    I love to fall apart
    They tell me I'm the master
    Of loving and losing heart


    Sleeper Car

    Bright you are
    And bigger than the both of us
    Though I'm a star
    I can't burn that bright
    Tiger car
    Swerving forward into us
    Now here we are

    Sleeper car
    Now you're backing into me
    Oh, where you are
    Feels good for now

    Now you're backing into me
    Oh, where you are
    Feels good for now
    Sleeper car
    Now you're backing into me

    Now you're backing into me
    Oh, where you are
    Feels good for now
    Although my arms
    Ache harder than they ever have
    You drive so far


    Pale Green

    I am fourteen
    Wrapped in a white sheet
    Rain's coming through the window
    The moon lands on my feet
    I am somewhere far from sleep

    I am pale green
    I think she laced it with PCP
    I feel like I'm in hell now
    I want my dad, I want my dad
    I am somewhere far from sleep

    Sleep, sleep

    And look at me now
    It's seven in the morning
    You're dreaming where it's storming
    I miss you, yeah
    I miss you without warning
    I am somewhere far from sleep


    One More Page Of Insincerity Please

    Waste of paper and ink
    Biding my time
    Avoiding sleep
    Preventing health
    Trying to satisfy myself

    The day is over
    I can't get over it
    I must move on
    When it is gone

    One more page of insincerity please

    Little baby, little man
    Forty pounder in the sand

    And I
    See I can't release
    Oh, I can't let go
    And I can't let you go

    Hold me up
    I hold you down
    And you'll be thankful you have found a man
    Like me


    All Mine

    I've got blood on my hands
    From this little timid life
    It's just like a man
    To trust me with all his might

    I got mud on my feet
    When I kicked you back three weeks
    If I promise to keep my mouth shut
    Can I sit here while you eat?

    Finally mine
    You're finally all mine

    Where did it get me?
    All mine
    What did it teach me?
    All mine
    Somebody stop me
    I'm losing control again

    I've got honor to earn
    But I guess I lost my turn
    When will I learn
    To treat you with concern

    Finally mine
    You're finally all mine

    Where did it get me?
    All mine
    Look what it taught me
    All mine
    Somebody stop me
    I'm losing control again

    All mine
    Where did it get me?
    All mine
    Look what it taught me
    All mine
    Somebody stop me
    I'm losing control



    Break Up Song


    I crawl out of sight for you, dear
    I melt with the night, I disappear
    I won't have more fun you
    Never get drunk with you
    I'll let you go for good

    I pulled it apart for you, dear
    I wait for my heart to shift gear
    I'll never sleep late with you
    Never get baked with you
    I'll let you down for good

    I'll never go back to you
    Never shoot smack with you
    I'll let you go for good

    Speed of Candy

    Panic
    Frenzy
    My love is near
    Panic
    Frenzy
    My love is here

    But there's one thing
    I know I need you to deliver me
    With all the speed of candy
    Whoa I'm a sugar queen so
    Shoot me with the speed that I need

    Panic
    Five a.m.
    My love sleeps
    Panic
    6 a.m.
    My mind creeps

    But there's one thing
    I know I need you to deliver me
    With all the speed of candy
    Whoa, I'm a sugar queen so
    Shoot me with the speed that I need

    And when it's over
    My teeth will be like glue
    It's true that's all I need
    Come on and feed me candy

    Candy
    We're all on the sugar team so
    Shoot me with the speed that I need
    It's the speed that I need


    Never Met Her

    I've never met her and I don't mind
    I've seen her face a thousand times
    She hides behind her hair
    I wonder if her love is like mine

    Face up, I'll face the day
    Three weeks you flew away
    I'll never blame her
    I'll never let you make me hate a girl that way

    Touchdown, I hear you scored
    I watched you slide out through the back door
    I've never met her, but when I do
    I'll thank her for saving me from you


    Swedish Fish

    Green or red, goodnight, remember
    Green is best of all the flavors
    Go ahead, it's only water

    I love my Swedish fish
    He's my secret wish

    Talk to me, I need attention
    Tell me all of your confessions
    Tell me if I cease to mention

    I love my Swedish fish
    He's my Pisces gift

    And I'm never coming back
    I am too far gone
    Won't you be heading this way
    Before too long
    I'm holding on to you

    I love my Swedish fish
    He's my secret wish

    I love my Swedish fish
    He's my favorite gift

    The Same Person

    I am not the same anymore
    And I don't feel that way anymore
    No, I am not the same person


    Born Entertainer

    This couldn't get any better
    She didn't get it so fuck her
    I'll never be any saner
    I'm a born entertainer

    yeah yeah yeah

    You couldn't be any cuter (you couldn't be any cuter)
    You couldn't be any cooler (couldn't be any cooler)
    You'll never be any saner (insane)
    'Cause you're a born entertainer

    yeah yeah yeah

    I want you to want me
    I need you to need me
    I dare you to ditch me
    I beg you to miss me

    So rock
    You couldn't get any radder (so rad)
    You couldn't be any badder (so sad)
    You couldn't be any lamer (you got out of danger)
    You're a born entertainer (you got out of danger)
    You're the born entertainer


    Best You Can Get

    She's all crazy and shit
    She shows off her tits
    She's just a corn-fed, white-bred chick
    Born in the right zip code
    She comes with a gold card
    She'll never have to pay for it

    What would she do without you?

    He's not afraid of the future
    He's hot off the platter
    He's been handed a blank check
    Phi Beta date rape ya
    He's sprung an agenda
    He's got a place to put it

    What would he do without you?

    Is this best that you can get?
    Is this the best that you can get? (express yourself don't repress yourself)
    What did you expect?

    I'm not afraid of the ocean
    Afraid of devotion
    I got the balls to prove it

    What would I do without you?
    What would I do? (is this the best?)
    What would I do without you? (the best that you can get)
    What would I do? (best that you can get)


    Wet Suit

    Roll the dice
    Now I wipe the tears from the skies
    Play your hand
    How I love my Marlboro man
    Say your prayers
    'Cause you've got enemies everywhere

    Your wet suit is keeping you warm
    In your cold bed
    I'll never be torn from you
    Try to keep it together
    You try your best to forget her

    Silly me
    Always a sucker for monogamy
    Honesty
    Seems to bring out the better in me
    Wish I knew
    Another way to ruin the day for you

    Your wet suit is keeping you warm
    In your cold bed
    I'll never be torn from you
    Try to keep it together
    You try your best to forget her

    I just can't leave you this way
    When you're not okay
    And trains will pass through here someday
    And take you away
    But you won't let me hit the ground
    When my heart slows down

    Your wet suit is keeping you warm
    In your cold head
    I'll never be torn from you
    Try to keep it together
    You try to keep it together


    Yeah Man

    I know you've got my back
    By the way you plan your next attack
    I know you've placed your bets
    By the way you like to watch me sweat
    If I could have my way
    I'd chain you down and make you stay

    'Cause you're the yes man, yes man
    Nobody else can
    You're the best man, yeah man
    Nobody else can
    You're my left hand, right hand man
    Right man
    You won't let me down
    You won't let me

    I know you in the dark
    By the way your hands pull me apart
    I know you in the day
    By the way you're here but your miles away
    I know you're in the mood
    Not to be attached or be misused

    'Cause you're the yes man, yes man
    Nobody else can
    You're my best man, Broham
    Nobody else can
    You're my left hand, right hand
    Right man
    You won't let me down
    You won't let me

    Down down down down baby
    Take me hot and hazy
    Leave me limp and lazy
    You can't save me
    yeah yeah

    I'll be your sacrifice
    I'll be your Lysistrata
    I'm the perfect daughter
    The perfect slaughter
    The perfect slaughter

    Yes man, yes man
    Nobody else can
    You're the best man, yeah man
    Nobody else can
    You're my left hand, right hand man
    Right man
    You won't let me down
    You won't let me

    Down down down down baby
    Take me hot and hazy
    Leave me limp and lazy
    You can't save me
    yeah yeah


    Imperfectly

    Can I help it if I'm not neat
    If there were creeps before you
    How can I help you if I am weak
    If I don't know how to help me
    But I love you, I love you
    Imperfect
    Imperfect
    Imperfectly

    Can I help it if I'm high strung
    If I was born with a sharp tongue
    Will you marry me if I stay sweet
    If I am the one with the cold feet
    But I love you, I love you
    Imperfect
    Imperfect
    Imperfectly

    yeah yeah yeah
    Imperfectly


    Officially Dead

    I don't believe what you said
    I can go anywhere
    I can hold my head up
    I can breathe in the air

    I'm not officially dead
    I still have a heart
    Not officially dead, yeah
    I still have a heart

    Do you remember the times
    You ride your bike past my house
    I wanna know you so bad
    Know you inside and out

    But you're officially dead
    You don't have a heart

    See me
    Feel me
    Touch me
    Heal me (might as well)
    Was it easy just to leave me
    Just to leave me for dead

    I know you can't let me go
    It's all in your head
    You want me back in your arms
    Want me back in your bed

    We're officially dead
    We don't have a heart

    Officially dead
    We're officially dead


    Only You Know

    Don't thank me for what you've got
    I've given you love
    I've given you too much thought
    Don't blame me for sinking the ship
    You're a hopeless liar and a hypocrite

    Only you know, only you know

    Don't thank me for what you've got
    I've given you love
    I've given you too much thought
    Don't shame me for calling it quits
    You're a hopeless cynic
    I'm an optimist

    Only you know, only you know

    Don't hate me for what you've got
    I've given you drugs
    I've given you too much thought
    Don't blame me for flunking the test
    I would rather think that you were honest

    Don't blame me 'cause you got caught
    You've given me up
    You've taken everything I got
    Those lies came straight from your mouth
    I never dreamed that you would be a sell-out

    Only you know, only you know

    Don't use me as your last crutch
    I've taken you in
    I trusted you way too much
    Don't wear me around your wrist
    You should have thought it through before you blew it

    Same day
    Same life
    Different person
    Your ghost
    My pride
    Perfect union

    Don't hate me for what you've got
    I've given you love
    I've given you too much thought
    Don't shame me for sinking the ship
    You're a hopeless liar and a hypocrite

    Don't hate me for what you're not
    I'm aiming your gun
    I'm lining up the perfect shot
    Don't waste me on something stupid like this
    I would rather die than take your bullet

    Only you know, only you know


    Disconnected

    Disconnected it's the way that I wanted it to be
    The Cult Electric is my favorite record of the week
    'Cause I'm not feeling sweet

    But I can't say that when everyone is so judgmental
    And I can't play back all the times when you were gentle
    'Cause even you can't be true

    It's astounding what love can do to a city
    Laurel Canyon was the best place for you and me to be
    I chose the curtains and I dreamed the dream of domesticity
    What a freak you made of me

    Now I'm on Zoloft because you told me I was crazy
    And I won't jump 'cause now I know you'd never catch me
    And I can't leave you because you swore you'd never let me
    But even you talk shit too

    It's January when I jump the fence of your backyard
    Finish the fairytale that you were drunk enough to start
    It's kinda scary when your lover leaves you for a movie star
    And I'm still in the dark

    But you have trained me to watch my back and drop my standards
    And you have shamed me since the first time you were with her
    And you can't make me love your band or buy your records
    'Cause you have tainted my respect for your adventures

    And you will never have the chance to trace my features
    And you won't ever make me feel like such a loser
    And you can have the past 'cause I'm in love with the future
    I'm in love with the future

    And I have met a boy who makes you look so shallow
    And there is so much time and so much space to travel
    And I will make the climb and I will kiss the gravel
    And I will kiss the gravel
    I'll touch the sky
    Watch me


    All Dressed Up

    Don't you see
    I'm the one for you
    You're the one for me
    Don't you see
    The love I got
    Is the love you need
    Don't you see

    I'm all dressed up to be what you want me to be
    I'm all dressed up
    All dressed up

    Don't you see
    The infinite possibilities
    Don't you need
    The kind of love that I need
    Don't you see me?

    I'm all dressed up to be what you want me to be
    I'm all dressed up to be what you taught me to be
    I'm all dressed up
    All messed up

    But you don't even notice me
    Moving you like a ton of glacier
    You don't even notice me
    Soothing you like a long lost sister
    And you don't even care
    No, you don't even care

    All dressed up with no place to go but home

    I'm all dressed up to be what you want me to be
    I'm all dressed up
    All dressed up

    You don't even comfort me
    You carry on with the will of Samson
    You don't even comfort me
    You keep your faith and you keep your phantoms
    And you don't even care
    No, you don't even care

    All dressed up, still there's something wrong
    I'm all dressed up and you're just a song
    I'm all dressed up, you're forever gone
    Everlong

    You don't even care
    No, you don't even care
    You don't want me


    Used To Know Her


    I used to know her
    I used to talk about her
    Waiting for the day when she would listen

    I used to know her
    I used to stick up for her
    Something in her smile was so bitchin'

    I used to sing, I used to sing

    I used to know her
    Used to know all about her
    Used to need her
    There was something about her
    I used to torture
    It's the best way around her
    Used to know her
    Now it just doesn't matter, oh yeah

    I used to fuck him
    I used to simplify him
    Something in his walk was like Jim Morrison
    I used to touch him
    I used to justify him
    Lying to my face with my permission

    I used to sing, I used to sing

    I used to fuck him
    Used to fucking love him
    Used to need him
    Now I read all about him
    Used to touch him
    Now I could never kiss him
    Used to love him
    Now I don't even miss him, oh yeah

    I used to know her
    I used to terrify her
    Used to sing
    We used to sing, yeah

    I used to know her
    Used to know all about her
    Used to need her
    There was something about her
    I'm used to torture
    It's the best way around her
    Used to know her
    Now she just doesn't matter, oh yeah
    She just doesn't matter, oh yeah

    Pretty Boys

    Last night I dreamt you were gay
    It was all you needed to say
    Finally an answer for why you don't want me that way

    Last year I slept in your arms
    And slept right through the alarm
    Now you live in Virginia alone on a farm

    Boys will be boys
    Girls can't avoid pretty boys

    Last July I came untied
    My trousers, my bra, and my pride
    You were so confident that I would let you inside

    Back of the bus in Berlin
    That was the summer of sin
    Brian and Ritchie pounding a bottle of gin
    Liars and lovers
    Twin brothers never win

    Boys will be boys
    Girls can't avoid pretty boys
    No, girls can't avoid pretty boys


    Hellraiser

    Weren't you the pilot who fell from the skies?
    Was it a big mistake or just plain homicide?
    How does it feel on the other side?
    Do you hang out with the saints or the spies?

    Are you still hellraising?
    Hellraising

    Is this the kind of thing we always fear
    Are you so bent on hell you'd leave me up here (without you)?
    God bless the miles we traveled too fast
    God help the suckers dead in your path

    Are you still hellraising?
    Hellraising

    You will pay for your mistakes
    You will pay

    This love was born on crutches crippled and bored
    Ripped out asleep and strangled by a phone cord
    Weren't you the pilot who swerved off the course?
    Was it disaster or just plain divorce

    Hellraising
    Are you still hellraising?
    Hellraising

    Straight Jacket




    Smoke and Mirrors

    Tell me what you wanted
    Tell me what you wanted
    Tell me, tell me

    She's the one never gets what she wanted
    She's the one doesn't get what she does have
    Got a daughter with the eyes of a genius
    Who's got a mother, don't matter
    That's where it all breaks down

    Mommy dearest, kinda Vegas, she's a freak scene
    Over-rated, unrefined, she's a dope fiend
    No one stays, wonder why, she's a bad dream
    Someone wake me up it's hot as hell here

    I don't wanna go where there's smoke and mirrors
    Take me to the desert where air is clear
    I'd rather hang out on the strip with the cokehead queers
    Then take an order from a killer
    Your atmosphere is rotten
    You may want me but I don't want you back

    She's a drag, kind of lame, leaves a bad taste
    After hours prop her up, she's in outer space
    Get some balls, be a pro, be a man
    Wanna get there faster but she can't come down

    Hey, I don't wanna go where there's smoke and mirrors
    Take me to the desert where air is clear
    I'd rather hang out on the strip with the cokehead queers
    Then take a lesson from a loser
    Your atmosphere is rotten
    You may want me but I don't want you back
    You may need me but I don't need you back
    You may love me but I don't love you back

    Tell me what you wanted
    Tell me what you wanted
    Tell me what you wanted
    Tell me, tell me

    I don't wanna go where there's smoke and mirrors
    Take me to the place where the coast is clear
    I'd rather hang out on the strip with the cokehead queers
    Then take an order from a killer
    Your atmosphere is poison

    I don't wanna go where there's smoke and mirrors
    Take me to the desert where air is clear
    I'd rather hang out on the strip with the cokehead queers
    Then be a traitor to my gender
    I'm outta here

    Oh oh oh, smoke and mirrors


    The Light Behind Your Eyes




    Blissful Queen

    You've got me running but I cant see you coming

    You've got me running but I cant see you coming baby
    You've got me running but I cant see you coming baby
    You've got me running but I cant see you coming
    Can't see you coming

    Shining star
    Glistening
    Wedding ring
    Gone too far

    You've got me running but I cant see you coming baby
    You've got me running but I cant see you coming baby
    You've got me running but I cant see you coming
    Can't see you coming
    Can't see you coming
    You've got me running but I cant see you coming baby
    You've got me running but I cant see you coming baby
    You've got me running but I cant see you coming
    Can't see you coming
    Can't see you coming

    You've got me running but I cant see you coming baby
    You've got me running but I cant see you coming baby
    You've got me running but I cant see you coming
    Can't see you coming
    Can't see you coming...
