A-M N-Z

No Body Puts Baby in Teh Corner

Drink down that Gin and Kerosene,
And come spit on bridges with me,
Just to keep us warm
And light a match to leave me be
Light a match to leave me be
I'll keep my jealousy close,
Cause it's all mine

And if you say this makes you happy,
Then I'm not the only one that lied

Keep quiet,
Nothing comes as easy as you
Can I lay in your bed all day,
I'll be your best kept secret,
And your biggest mistake?
(The hand behind this pen relives a failure everyday)

Keep quiet,

So wear me like a locket around your throat
I'll weigh you down
I'll watch you choke
You look so good in blue
You look so good in blue

So wear me like a locket around your throat
I'll weigh you down
I'll watch you choke
You look so good in blue
You look so good in blue

Of All the Gin Joints in All the World

[Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh]

X6

You only hold me up like this
'Cause you don't know who I really am
Sometimes I just want to know what it's like to be you
We're making out inside crashed cars
We're sleeping through all our memories
I used to waste my time dreaming of being alive
(Now I only waste it dreaming of you)

Turn off the lights and turn off the shyness
'Cause all of our moves make up for the silence
And oh, the way your makeup stains my pillowcase
Like I'll never be the same

You only hold me up like this
'Cause you don't know who I really am
I used to waste my time on
Waste my time on
Waste my time dreaming of being alive
(Now I only waste it dreaming of you)

Turn off the lights and turn off the shyness
'Cause all of our moves make up for the silence
And oh, the way your makeup stains my pillowcase
Like I'll never be the same
[Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh]
X3

I've got headaches and bad luck but they couldn't touch you, no
I've got headaches and bad luck but they couldn't touch you, no
I'm not trying
You only hold me up like this

Turn off the lights and turn off the shyness
'Cause all of our moves make up for the silence
And oh, the way your makeup stains
Like I'll never be the same

(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)

Our Lawyer Made Us Change The

Brothers and sisters put this record down
Take my advice
('Cause we are bad news)
We will leave you high and dry
It's not worth the hearing you'll lose

It's just past 8 and I'm feeling young and reckless
The ribbon on my wrist says, "Do not open before Christmas"

We're only liars, but we're the best
(We're the best)
We're only good for the latest trends
We're only good 'cause you can have almost famous friends
Besides, we've got such good fashion sense

Brothers and sisters, yeah, put these words down
Into your notebook
(Spit lines like these)
We're friends when you're on your knees
Make them dance like we were shooting their feet

It's just past 8 and I'm feeling young and reckless
The ribbon on my wrist says, "Do not open before Christmas"

We're only liars, but we're the best
(We're the best)
We're only good for the latest trends
We're only good 'cause you can have almost famous friends
Besides, we've got such good fashion sense

We're only liars, but we're the best
We're only good for the latest trends

We're only liars, but we're the best
We're only good for the latest trends
We're only good 'cause you can have almost famous friends

 

Parker Lewis Can't Lose

You laughed off my affections
While I passed by your direction
I should have known from your walk, yeah
It was the end of you

It's not like I don't respect your opinion
Quick with lips, just rip me apart
Sometimes it's times like this, yeah

I got a big mouth
And maybe you could handle shutting it up
A simple contradiction
Could shake my whole foundation
Parker Lewis can't lose

Taking back every step towards you
Still failing at everything I do
In the meantime just talking with my shoes
Converse with my Converse
At least they hear a word I say
And scrutinize it
Just as far as they can tell what I'm getting at
Tied my tongue around my neck
For the last time

It's not like I don't respect your opinion
Quick with lips, just tear me apart
Sometimes, it's times like this yeah

I got a big mouth
And maybe you could handle shutting it up
A simple contradiction
Could shake my whole foundation
Parker Lewis can't lose

This is the last song about you

 

Pavlove

Oh, oh, oh-oh [x4]

Something make my chest stir
Something make my head blur
(Oh, oh)
I'm not ready for a handshake with death, no
(Oh, oh)
I'm just such a happy mess, whoa

The drums are four on the floor
She's back to the bedroom for one more

I'm the invisible man
Who can't stop staring at the mirror, at the mirror

I want to make you as lonely as me
So you can get, get addicted to this,
You can get, get addicted to this now

Oh, oh, oh-oh [x4]

It's three things too late to talk to anyone but myself
(Oh, oh)
It's a three-and-two pitch to walk to anywhereelse, no

The drums are four on the floor
She's back to the bathroom/bedroom for one more

I'm the invisible man
Who can't stop staring at the mirror, at the mirror

I want to make you as lonely as me
So you can get, get addicted to this,
You can get, get addicted to this now

Oh, oh, oh-oh [x4]

I'm the invisible man
Who can't stop staring at the mirror, at the mirror

I want to make you as lonely as me
So you can get, get addicted to this
You can get, get addicted to this now

I'm the invisible man (I'm the invisible man)
I'm the invisible man (I'm the invisible man)
I want to make you as lonely as me,
Cause I'm the invisible man

 

Pretty in Punk

Walking off that stage tonight
I know what you're thinking
"He stands alone because he's high on himself"
But if you only knew..

I was terrified and would you mind if I
sat next to you and watched you smile
So many kids but I only see you
And I don't think you notice me
Well I've seen your boyfriend
and I don't think he treats you right
But that's none of my business is it?

I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no

The only girl who ever gave me the time
was the one who only wanted five minutes of mine
Knocking boots in the back,
How degrading is that?
I decline

I'm too terrified and would you mind if I
sat next to you and watched you smile
So many kids but I only see you
And I don't think you notice me
Well I've seen your boyfriend
and I don't think he treats you right
But that's none of my business is it?

I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no

I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no

I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no, no

 

Rat a Tat

[Intro]
It's Courtney, bitch.
No thesis existed for burning cities down at such a rampant rate
No graphics and no fucking power point presentation
So they just diy'd that shit and built their own bombs
She's his suicide blond, she's never in gold

Are you ready for another bad poem?
One more off key anthem
Let your teeth sink in
Remember me as I was not as I am
And I said I'll check in tomorrow if I don't wake up dead,
I kept wishing she had blind ambition and she'd let it go to my head

Rat a tat tat
Rat a tat tat tat hey
If my love is a weapon
There's no second guessing when I say
Rat a tat tat
Rat a tat tat tat hey
If my heart is a grenade
You pull the pin and say:

[Chorus]
We're all fighting growing old
We're all fighting growing old
In the hopes
Of the few minutes more
To get on saint peter's list
But you need to lower your standards
Cause it's never
Getting any better than this

We are professional ashes of roses
This kerosene's live
You settled your score
This is where you come to beg, unborn and unshaven
Killing fields of fire to a congress of ravens
This is what we do, we nightmare you

I'm about to make the sweat roll backwards
And your heart beat in reverse
Our guts can't be reworked
As alone as a little white church in the middle of the desert,
Getting burned
But I'll take your heart served up two ways
I sing a bitter song
I'm the lonelier version of you
I just don't know where it went wrong

Rat a tat tat
Rat a tat tat tat hey
If my love is a weapon
There's no second guessing when I say
Rat a tat tat
Rat a tat tat tat hey
If my heart is a grenade
You pull the pin and say:

[Chorus]
We're all fighting growing old
We're all fighting growing old
In the hopes
Of the few minutes more
To get on saint peter's list
But you need to lower your standards
Cause it's never
Getting any better than this

She's sick and she's wrong
She's young dirty blonde
And you sink inside her like a suicide bomb
He says "I've seen bigger"
She says "I've lit better"
And they throw the matches down into the glitter
Not a dry eye left in the house
Go boy, go boy, run for your life
Go boy, go boy, run for your life
Go boy, go boy, run for your life

[Chorus]
We're all fighting growing old
We're all fighting growing old
In the hopes
Of the few minutes more
To get on saint peter's list
But you need to lower your standards
Cause it's never
Getting any better than this.

 

Reinventing the Wheel To Run Myself Over

I could walk this fine line between elation and success,
But we all know which way I'm going to go strike the stake between my chest
Well "You have to prove yourself" You'll have to prove it to me

So now you're waiting up for him you're wasting time every time

I can't do it by myself

I can't wake up to these reminders of who I am:
A failure of everything 18 going on extinct
I know my place it's nowhere you should roam

 

Roxanne

Roxanne
You don't have to put on the red light
Those days are over
You don't have to sell your body to the night

Roxanne
You don't have to wear that dress tonight
Walk the streets for money
You don't care if it's wrong or if it's right

Roxanne
You don't have to put on the red light
Roxanne
You don't have to put on the red light

(Roxanne) Put on the red light
(Roxanne) Put on the red light
(Roxanne) Put on the red light
(Roxanne) Put on the red light
(Roxanne) Put on the red light
(Roxanne) Put on the red light

I loved you since I knew you
I wouldn't talk down to you
I have you to tell just how I feel
I won't share you with another boy

I know my mind is made up (oh)
So put away your make up
Told you once I won't tell you again
It's a bad way

Roxanne
You don't have to put on the red light
Roxanne
You don't have to put on the red light

(Roxanne) You don't have to put on the red light
(Roxanne) You don't have to put on the red light
(Roxanne) You don't have to put on the red light
(Roxanne) Put on the red light
(Roxanne) You don't have to put on the red light
(Roxanne)
Put on the red light
Put on the red light
You don't have to put on the red light
Put on the red light
Put on the red light
Put on the red light
Put on the red light

(Roxanne)
Put on the red light
You dont have to put on the red light
You dont have to put on the red light
Put on the red light
You dont have to put on the red light
Put on the red light
(Roxanne)
Put on the red light
(Roxanne)
You dont have to put on the red light
(Roxanne)
Put on the red light
(Roxanne)
Put on the red light
Put on the red light
Put on the red light

 

Saturday

I'm good to go
And I'm going nowhere fast
It could be worse
It could be taking you there with me
I'm good to go
But it looks like I'm still on my own

I'm good to go
For something golden
Though the motions I've been going through have failed
And I'm coasting on potential towards a wall
At a 100 miles an hour

When I say
Two more weeks
My foot is in the door (yeah)
I can't sleep
In the wake of Saturday (Saturday)
Saturday
When these open doors were open-ended
Saturday
When these open doors were open-ended

Pete and I attacked the lost Astoria*
with promise and precision and mess of youthful innocence
And I read about the afterlife
But I never really lived more than an hour (more than an hour)

When I say
Two more weeks
My foot is in the door (yeah)
I can't sleep
In the wake of Saturday (Saturday)
Saturday
When these open doors were open-ended
Saturday
When these open doors were open-ended

And I read about the afterlife
But I never really lived
And I read about the afterlife
But I never really lived

Two more weeks
My foot is in the door
Me and Pete
In the wake of Saturday
Saturday
When these open doors were open-ended
Saturday
When these open doors were open-ended
Saturday
Saturday
saturday

 

Save Rock And Roll

How'd it get to be only me?
Like I'm got the last damn kid still kicking, that still believes

[Bridge 2: Elton & Patrick]
I will defend the faith, going down swinging
I will save the songs that we can't stop singing

[Hook 2]
No, no, wherever I go, go
Trouble seems to follow
I only come here to save rock and roll
No, no, wherever I go, go
Trouble seems to follow
I only come here to save rock and roll

Oh no, we won't go
Oh no, we won't go
We don't know when to quit, no, no
Oh no, we won't go
Oh no, we won't go
We don't know when to quit, no, no

[Bridge 3: Elton]
You are what you love,
Not who loves you
In a world full of the word yes, I'm here to scream
No, no

[Hook 3: Elton & Patrick]
Wherever I go, go
Trouble seems to follow
And I only come here to save rock and roll,
Wherever I go, go,
I only come here to save rock and roll,

Oh no, we won't go
Oh no, we won't go
We don't know when to quit, no, no
Oh no, we won't go
Oh no, we won't go
We don't know when to quit, no, no
Oh no, we won't go
Oh no, we won't go
We don't know when to quit, no, no
I only come here to save rock and roll

 

Save Your Generation

I have a present,
It is a present,
You'll have to learn to find it within you,
If you could learn,
To love it you just might like it,
You cant live without it,
There's a million open windows,
Passing these opened windows,
Passing these opened windows,

Whaoh, Whaoh, Whaoh <i>[x2]

There is plenty,
To criticize,
It gets so easy to narrow these eyes,
But these eyes will stay wide,
I will stay young,
Young and dumb inside,
I had just begun,
To forget my lines,
You're not punk and I'm telling everyone

[Chorus]
You could save yourself,
You could save us all,
Go on living, prove us wrong,
Your leap of faith,
Could be a well - timed smile,
Survival never goes out of style

I have a message: save your generation,
We're killing each other by sleeping in,
Finnegan, begin again,
This one can be won,
One can become two,
Two can pick and choose,
You could be the first

[Chorus]
You could save yourself,
you could save us all,
Go on living, prove us wrong,
Your leap of faith,
Could be a well - timed smile,
Survival never goes out of style

You have to learn to learn from your mistakes,
You can afford to lose a little face,
The things you break,
Some can't be replaced,
A simple rule: every day be sure you wake,

[Chorus]
You could save yourself,
You could save us all,
Go on living, prove us wrong,
Your leap of faith,
Could be a well - timed smile,
Survival never goes out of...
Survival never goes out of...
Survival never goes out of style.

 

Sending Postcards From A Plane Crash (Wish You Were Here)

I am such a sucker
And I'm always the last to know
My insides are copper
And I'd kill to make them gold
Conversation got me here: another night alone in the city
So make my bed the grave and shovel dirt onto my sheets

[Chorus:]
Every friend we ever had in common
I will sever the tie, sever the tie with you
You can thank your lucky stars
That everything I wish for will never come true

When you go, I will forget everything about you <i>[x2]

I've seen sinking ships go down with more grace than you

Turn this up I'll tune you out
Another night alone in the city, yeah
Fake it like you matter-that's a lie we can both keep, ohh

[Chorus]

When you go, I will forget everything about you <i>[x2]

I will forget when you go
I will forget everything about you when you go
I will forget everything about you

[Chorus]

 

She's My Winona

Life is just the pacecar of death
Only less diligent
And when the two collide
It's no coincidence
The lights are on and everybody's home

The only thing suicidal here is the door
We had a good run
Even I have to admit
Life's just a pay stub on debt
Only less diligent

Hell or Glory
I don't want anything in between
Then came a baby boy with long eyelashes
Daddy said you gotta show the world the thunder
The thunder, the thunder, the thunder

We didn't come to compete
This is a demonstration
Even the young ones become irrelevant
They always bring up how you changed
Never the same person when I go to sleep
As when I wake up, as when I wake up

Hell or Glory
I don't want anything in between
Then came a baby boy with long eyelashes
Daddy said you gotta show the world the thunder
The thunder, the thunder, the thunder

Hell or Glory
I don't want anything in between
Then came a baby boy with long eyelashes
Daddy said you gotta show the world the thunder
The thunder, the thunder, the thunder (he said bring the thunder)

 

Short, Fast And Loud

She's shallow like the shoreline during low tide
But my hopes are not quite as high
Can't spot her faults but she spotted mine
She left me for herself
Considering I would too

Go figure, I'm bigger than that
Go figure, I'm bigger than that

The battles only halfway done
I might look young
But I'm no less defeated
How's the weather up there?

She left me for herself
Considering I would too

Good God I wish I was tall
Good God I wish
Good God I wish I was tall
Good God I wish
Good God I wish I was tall
Good God I wish
Good God I wish I was tall
Good God I wish

Go figure, I'm bigger than that
Go figure, I'm bigger than that
Go figure, I'm bigger than that
Go figure, I'm bigger than that

 

Snitches And Talkers Get Stitches And Walkers

Show me, show me, show me a starry-eyed kid
I, I, I will break his jaw
I won't, I won't, I won't let him get his hopes up
No-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
And I will save him from himself
Here's a picture with a no-note
"Don't turn out like me"
It's only for your own good
No-oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

And haven't you heard
The word on the street is
"I lost it, called it quits"
Get into the sun,
Out from behind the gossip
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

This story's getting old
The home wrecker with the heart of gold
Keep you locked up in the trunk of my mind
Keep, k-keep talking
Keep this alive
This story's getting old
The home wrecker with the heart of gold
Keep you locked up in the trunk of my mind now-ow, ow-ow, ow-ow

Hey, hey[x3]

Even when there's
N-n-n-nothing worth living for
You're still, you're still, still worth lying for
N-no one has to know-ow, ow-ow, ow-ow
And haven't you heard
The word on the street is
"I lost it, called it quits"
Get into the sun
Out from behind the gossip
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

This story's getting old
The home wrecker with the heart of gold
Keep you locked up in the trunk of my mind
Keep, k-keep talking
Keep this alive
This story's getting old (This story's getting old)
The home wrecker with the heart of gold
Keep you locked up in the trunk of my mind now-ow, ow-ow, ow-ow

This story's getting old
The home wrecker with the heart of gold
Keep you locked up in the trunk of my mind
Keep, k-keep talking
Keep this alive
This story's getting old (This story's getting old)
The home wrecker with the heart of gold
Keep you locked up in the trunk of my mind now-ow, ow-ow, ow-ow
N-n-now, ow-ow, ow-ow [x3]

Stop!

 

So Sick

Gotta change that answering machine
Now that I'm alone
'Cause right now it says that we
Can't come to the phone
And I know it makes no sense
'Cause you walked out the door
But it's the only way I hear your voice anymore
It's ridiculous
It's been months
And for some reason I just
Can't get over us
And I'm stronger then this
Ain't no faith in her
Always walkin' 'round
With my head down
I'm so over being blue
Cryin over you

And I'm so sick of love songs
So tired of tears
So done with wishing you were still here
Said I'm so sick of love songs so sad and slow
So why can't I turn off the radio?

Gotta fix that calender I have
It's marked July 15th
Because since there's no more you
There's no more anniversary
I'm so fed up with my thoughts of you
And your memory
And how every song reminds me
Of what used to be

That's the reason I'm so sick of love songs
So tired of tears
So done with wishing that you were still here
Said I'm so sick of love songs so tired and slow
So why can't I turn off the radio?

Leave me alone
Stupid love song
Don't make me think about her smile
Or having my first child
Let it go
I'm turning off the radio

'Cause I'm so sick of love songs
So sick of tears
So done with wishing that you were still here
Said I'm so sick of love songs so sick and slow
So why can't I turn off the radio?

Yes, I'm so sick of love songs
So tired of tears
So sick of wishing you were still here
Said I'm so done with love songs so sad and slow
And why can't I turn off the radio?

Why can't I turn off the radio?

Why?

 

Sophomore Slump Or Comeback of the Year

Are we growing up or just going down?
It's just a matter of time until we're all found out
Take her tears, put them on ice
Cause I swear I'd burn this city down to show you the light

We're the therapists pumping through your speakers
Delivering just what you need
We're well read and poised
We're the best boys
We're the chemists who've found the formula
To make your heart swell and burst
No matter what they say, don't believe a word

Cause I'll keep singing this lie if you'll keep believing it
I'll keep singing this lie
I'll keep singing this lie

Are we growing up or just going down?
It's just a matter of time until we're all found out
Take her tears, put them on ice
Cause I swear I'd burn this city down to show you the light

We're traveled like gypsies
Only with worse luck and far less gold
We're the kids you used to love
But then we grew old
We're the lifers here till the bitter end
Condemned from the start
Ashamed of the way
The songs and the words own the beating of our hearts

Cause I'll keep singing this lie
I'll keep singing this lie

Are we growing up or just going down?
It's just a matter of time until we're all found out
take her tears, put them on ice
Cause I swear I'd burn this city down to show you the light
And There's a drug in the thermostat to warm the room up
But there's another around to help us bend your trust
I've got a sunset in my veins
And I need to take a pill to make this town feel okay

The best part of "Believe" is the "Lie",
I hope you sing along and you steal a line
I need to keep you like this in my mind
So give in or just give up
[x2]

Are we growing up or just going down?

Are we growing up or just going down?
It's just a matter of time until we're all found out
Take her tears, put them on ice
Cause I swear I'd burn this city down to show you the light

Yesterday you were on my back just to get my time.
I guess it's not as precious as it seems.
Because I found the time for hanging out and talking on the phone.
What should I expect, now that my time is free
And you're nowhere to be found.

Next time I'll try,
For the first time in my life.
It won't pass me by.
Procrastinate it can wait, I put it off.
Let's start today.
Let's start today.

My room's a mess and I can't get dressed.
I gotta be out by eight o'clock.
Deep inside I know the answer (I know the answer)
Well there's no time like the present
And I'd like to hang out but who doesn't.
I've made enough mistakes for this lifetime.
Now I'm here to make amends.

Next time I'll try,
For the first time in my life.
It won't pass me by.
Procrastinate it can wait, I put it off.

(Start!)

Next time I'll try,
For the first time in my life.
It won't pass me by.
Procrastinate it can wait, I put it off.

(Start!)

 

Sugar We're Going Down

Am I more than you bargained for yet
I've been dying to tell you anything you want to hear
Cause that's just who I am this week
Lie in the grass, next to the mausoleum
I'm just a notch in your bedpost
But you're just a line in a song
(A notch in your bedpost, but you're just a line in a song)

Drop a heart, break a name
We're always sleeping in, and sleeping for the wrong team

We're going down, down in an earlier round
And Sugar, we're going down swinging
I'll be your number one with a bullet
A loaded God complex, cock it and pull it
[x2]

Is this more than you bargained for yet
Oh don't mind me I'm watching you two from the closet
Wishing to be the friction in your jeans
Isn't it messed up how I'm just dying to be him
I'm just a notch in your bedpost
But you're just a line in a song
(Notch in your bedpost, but you're just a line in a song)

Drop a heart, break a name
We're always sleeping in, and sleeping for the wrong team

We're going down, down in an earlier round
And Sugar, we're going down swinging
I'll be your number one with a bullet
A loaded God complex, cock it and pull it
[x2]

Down, down in an earlier round
And Sugar, we're going down swinging
I'll be your number one with a bullet
A loaded God complex, cock it and pull it

We're going down, down in an earlier round (Take aim at myself)
And Sugar, we're going down swinging (Take back what you said)
I'll be your number one with a bullet (Take aim at myself)
A loaded God complex, cock it and pull it

We're going down, down (down, down)
Down, down (down, down)
We're going down, down (down, down)
A loaded God complex, cock it and pull it

We're going down, down in an earlier round (Take aim at myself)
And Sugar, we're going down swinging (Take back what you said)
I'll be your number one with a bullet (Take aim at myself)
A loaded God complex, cock it and pull it

 

Switchblades And Infidelity

Walking out on the show is walking out on you
And walking out on you's still the best thing that I ever did.

Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode

Well, I'm looking out at you obscured by the stand up arcade
And the sound of the descendents.
Your smile reminds me of switchblades and infidelity.

Walking out on the show is walking out on you
And walking out on you's still the best thing that I ever did.

Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode

One, two, three, four
Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode

 

Tell That Mick He Just Made My List of Things To Do Today

Light that smoke, yeah, one for giving up on me
And one just cause they'll kill you sooner than my expectations
To my favorite liar, to my favorite scar (to my favorite scar):
"I could have died with you"
I hope you choke on those words, that kiss, that bottle - confess (So bury me in memory)
Now ash yourself, yeah, out on the insides, said I loved you but I lied

Let's play this game called "when you catch fire"
I wouldn't piss to put you out
Stop burning bridges and drive off of them
So I can forget about you

So bury me in memory
His smile's your rope
So wrap it tight around your throat

On the drive home
Joke about the kid you used to see
And his jealousy
Breaking hearts has never looked so cool
As when you wrap your car around a tree
Your makeup looks so great next to his teeth (his teeth)

Let's play this game called "when you catch fire"
I wouldn't piss to put you out, no
Stop burning bridges and drive off of them
So I can forget about you

So bury me in memory
His smile's your rope
So wrap it tight around your throat
[x2]

So bury me in memory around your throat

 

Thanks For the Memorie

I'm gonna make you bend and break (it sent you to me without wings)
Say a prayer, but let the good times roll
In case God doesn't show (let the good times roll, let the good times roll)
And I want these words to make things right
But it's the wrongs that makes the words come to life
Who does he think he is (if that's the worst you got better put your fingers back to the keys)

One night and one more time
Thanks for the memories
Even though they weren't so great
He tastes like you only sweeter

One night yeah and one more time
Thanks for the memories
Thanks for the memories
See, He tastes like you only sweeter
ooooooooh

Been looking forward to the future
But my eyesight is going bad
And this crystal ball
It's always cloudy except for (except for)
When you look into the past (look into the past)
One night stand
One night stands out!

One night, and one more time
Thanks for the memories
Even though they weren't so great
He tastes like you only sweeter

One night, yeah one more time
Thanks for the memories
Thanks for the memories
See, He tastes like you only sweeter

They say I only think in the form of
Crunching numbers in hotel rooms
Collecting page six lovers
Get me out of my mind
Gets you out of those clothes
I'm a line away from
Getting you into the mood (wa-ooooohhh)

One night, One more time
Thanks for the memories
Even though they werent so great
He tastes like you only sweeter

One night, Yeah One more time
Thanks for the memories
Thanks for the memories
See, He taste like you only sweeter

One more night and one more time
Thanks for the memories
Even though they werent so great
He tastes like you only sweeter

One night, One more time
Thanks for the memories
Thanks for the memories
See, he tastes like you only sweeter

 

The Carpal Tunnel of Love

We take sour sips from life's lush lips
And we shake, shake, shake the hips in relationships
Stomp out this disaster town
You'll put your eyes to the sun and say, "I know
You're only blinding to keep back what the clouds are hiding."

And we might've started singing just a little soon
We're throwing stones at a glass moon*

Whoa oh, we're so miserable and stunning
Whoa oh, love songs for the genuinely cunning, whoa-oh

We keep the beat with your blistered feet
And we bullet the words at the mockingbirds singing
Slept through the weekend and dreaming
Of sinking with the melody of the cliffs of eternity
Got postcards from my former selves saying: "How've you been?"

We might've said goodbyes just a little soon
(Stomp out this disaster town)
Robbing lips, kissing banks under this moon

Whoa oh, we're so miserable and stunning
Whoa oh, love songs for the genuinely cunning
Whoa oh, we're so miserable and stunning
Whoa oh, love songs for the genuinely cunning, ohh

It was ice cream headaches and sweet avalanche
When the pearls in our shells got up to dance
You call me a bad tipper of the cradle
Tired yawns for fawns on hunter's lawns
We're the has-beens of husbands
Sharpening the knives of young wives
Take two years and call me when you're better
Take teardrops of mine, find yourself wetter

Whoa oh, we're so miserable and stunning
Whoa oh, love songs for the genuinely cunning
Whoa oh, we're so miserable and stunning
Whoa oh, love songs for the genuinely cunning

 

The Mighty Fall

Did you trip down 12 steps into Malibu (Malibu)
So why the hell is there a light that's keeping us forever
Bel Air baby did you get dressed up?
Pretty pout pout (While you bottomed out out)
I can't stop it when there's chemicals keeping us together

[Hook]
I'm singing "Whoa"
How the mighty fall, the mighty fall
The mighty fall
How the mighty fall, the mighty fall
The mighty fall
Oh, how the mighty fall in love

 

The Music Or the Misery

I got my stitches stitched, I got my fixes fixed,
In my aching head, I got my kisses slit.
Our gossip lips stuttered every word I said, I said,
I got your love letters, corrected the grammar and sent them back.
It's true romance is dead, I shot it in the chest then in the head.

And if you wanna go down in history then I'm your prince,
Because they've got me in a bad way I've never seen a heart I couldn't break.
It was never about the songs, it was competition.
Make the biggest scene, make the biggest...

Which came first, the music or the misery?
We're high-fashion, we're last chances.
Which came first, the music or the misery?
We're high-fashion, we're last chances.

I'm casually obsessed and I've forgiven death,
I am indifferent, yet (I am a total wreck)
I'm every cliche, but I simply do it best.

And if you wanna go down in history then I'm your prince,
Because they've got me in a bad way I've never seen a heart I couldn't break.
It was never about the songs, it was competition,
Make the biggest scene, make the biggest...

Which came first, the music or the misery?
We're high-fashion, we're last chances.
Which came first, the music or the misery?
We're high-fashion, we're last chances.

(Go!)

I went to sleep a poet, and I woke up a fraud,
To calm your nerves I'm feeling for my clothes in the dark.

Which came first, the music or the misery?
We're high-fashion, we're last chances.

Which came first, the music or the misery?
We're high-fashion, we're last chances.
Which came first, the music or the misery?
We're high-fashion, we're last chances.

[Note: as usual, words in the cd case are different:
"I'm casually obsessed and >I'm the best yet<"

"And if you wanna go down in history then I'm your prince,
Because they've got me in a bad way >baby<. I've never seen a heart I couldn't break.
It was never about the songs, it was competition,
Make the biggest scene, make the biggest >seen<"]

 

The Patron Saint of Liars And Fakes

I'm holding out and I'm holding on
To every letter and every song.
I pulled myself out of the day we ever had to meet.
Are you through with me?

So..

And when it all goes to hell,
Will you be able to tell
Me you're sorry with a straight face.
[x2]

Let's Go!

I'm all ears and I'm all scars
To hear you tell me "Boy's like you, you try too hard
To look not quite as desperate". I'm hanging on.
But I still know the way to make your makeup run.

So..

And when it all goes to hell,
Will you be able to tell
Me you're sorry with a straight face.
[x3]

And when it all goes to hell, (Take this to your grave)
Will you be able to tell
Me you're sorry with a straight face. (I'll take it to mine)

And when it all goes to hell <I>[x3]
And when it all goes.

 

The Phoenix

Put on your war paint

You are a brick tied to me that's dragging me down
Strike a match and Ill burn you to the ground
We are the jack-o-lanterns in July
Setting fire to the sky
Here, here comes this rising tide so come on

Put on your war paint

Cross walks and crossed hearts and hope to die
Seal the clouds with grey lining

So we can take the world back from a heart attack
One maniac at a time we will take it back
You know time crawls on when youre waiting for the song to start
So dance along to the beat of your heart

Hey Youngblood doesn't it feel like our time is running out
I'm going to change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix
Wearing all vintage misery
No I think it looked a little better on me
I'm going to change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix

Bring home the boys in scraps
Scrap metal the tanks
Get hitched make a career out of robbing banks
Because the world is just a teller and we are wearing black
She broke our spirits with no impact

So we can take the world back from a heart attack
One maniac at a time we will take it back
You know time crawls on when you're waiting for the song to start
So dance along to the beat of your heart

Hey Youngblood doesn't it feel like our time is running out
I'm going to change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix
Wearing all vintage misery
No I think it looked a little better on me
I'm going to change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix

Put on your war paint

The war is won before it's begun
Release the doves
Surrender love
X4

Hey Youngblood doesn't it feel
Like our time is running out
I'm going to change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix
Wearing all vintage misery
No I think it looked a little better on me
I'm going to change you like a remix
Then I'll raise you like a phoenix
X2

Put on your war paint

 

The Pros And Cons of Breathing

Bury me standing under your window with the cinder block in hand
Yeah cause no one will ever feel like this again
And if I could move I'm sure it would only be to crawl back to you
I must have dragged my guts a block... they were gone by the time we {talked}...

[Chorus: x2]
Whoa, I want to hate you half as much as I hate myself
{But} you know that I could crush you with my voice

Stood on my roof and tried to see you forgetting about me
Hide the details I don't want to know a thing

I hate the way you say my name like it's something secret
My pen is the barrel of the gun.
Remind me which side you should be on

[Chorus x2]

Stood on my roof and tried to see you forgetting about me
Hide the details I don't want to know a thing

I wish that I was as invisible as you make me feel <i>[x2]

(Whoa, I want to hate you half as much as I hate my) <i>[x2]</i>
(1..2..3..4..)

[Chorus x2]

 

The Take Over, the Break's Over

Baby, seasons change but people don't.
And I'm always there waiting in the back room.
I'm boring but over compsenate with,
Headlines and flash flash flash photography.

But don't pretend you'll ever forget about me.
Don't pretend you'll ever forget about me.

Wouldn't you rather be a widow than a divorcee?
Style your wake for fashion magazines.
Widow or a divorcee?
Don't pretend.
D-d-d-don't pretend.

We don't fight fair.
(We don't fight fair.)

They say your head can be a prison.
Then these are just conjugal visits.
People will dissect us till,
This doesn't mean a thing anymore.

Don't pretend you'll ever forget about me.
Don't pretend you'll ever forget about me.

Wouldn't you rather be a widow than a divorcee?
Style your wake for fashion magazines. O-o-o-o-o.
Widow or a divorcee?
Don't pretend.
Don't pretend.

We do it in the dark, with smiles on our faces.
We're trapped and well concealed in secret places. (Woah.)
We do it in the dark, with smiles on our faces.
We're trapped and well concealed in secret places.
We don't fight fair.
We don't fight fair.
We don't fight fair.
We don't fight fair.
We don't fight fair.

We do it in the dark, with smiles on our faces.
We're trapped and well concealed in secret places. (Woah.)
We do it in the dark, with smiles on our faces.
We're trapped and well concealed in secret places.
We don't fight fair.
With smiles on our faces.
We're trapped and well concealed in secret places.
We don't fight fair
(Don't pretend you'll ever forget about me.)
We don't fight fair.
(Don't pretend you'll ever forget about me.)
We don't fight fair.

 

The World's Not Waiting (For Five Tired Boys And a Broken Down Van)

This might just be a waste of time
There's no one I'd rather waste
My time with than all my best friends
So start the car up

We'll all take turns not for the worst
We're all "hasbeens" and "never-were's"
And we're all in the back singing "Roxanne"
Just watching life pass us by
Pass us by

As if we cared
Enough to try to catch up
Enough to make up for lost time
Enough to make up for lost time, yeah

We've been down
We've been out
We've been hanging 'round
Tip our glasses to no direction, yeah
Start the van
Get me out of this one horse town
Waste this night

We've been down
We've been out
We've been hanging 'round
Tip our glasses to no direction, yeah
Start the van
Get me out of this one horse town
Waste this night
Waste this night

We've been down
We've been out
We've been hanging 'round
Tip our glasses to no direction, yeah
Start the van
Get me out of this one horse town
Waste this night

 

The (After) Life of the Party

I'm a stitch away from making it
And a scar away from falling apart, apart
Blood cells pixelate
And eyes dilate
And the full moon pills got me out on the street at night

Cut it loose
Watch you work the room
Cut it loose
Watch you work the room
Cut it loose
Watch you work the room
Cut it loose
Watch you work the room

Oh
Put love on hold,
Young Hollywood is on the other line
Her nose runs ruby red, deaths in a double bed
Singing songs that could only catch the ear of the desperate

Cut it loose
Watch you work the room
Cut it loose
Watch you work the room
Cut it loose
Watch you work the room
Cut it loose

I'm a stitch away from making it
And a scar away from falling apart, apart
Blood cells pixelate
And eyes dilate
Kiss away young thrills and kills on the mouths of all my friends

Cut it loose
Watch you work the room
Loose
Watch you work the room
Cut it loose
(Watch you work the room)

I'm a stitch away

 

The (Shipped) Gold Standard

Sometimes I wanna quit this song and become an accountant now
But I'm no good at math and besides the dollar is down
Plant palm trees on Lake Michigan before it gets cold
I gotta feel the wind chill again before I get old

I wanna scream I love you from the top of my lungs
But I'm afraid that someone else will hear me
You can only blame your problems on my world for so long
Before it all becomes the same old song
As soon as we hit the hospital, I know we're gonna leave this town
And get new passports and get get get get get out now

All the yes men said no comment
My mouth got going wrong way and all the calls started to roll in
The time my dad caught me a horse shoe crab
And I asked him if throwing it back into the sea would bring our luck back

I wanna scream I love you from the top of my lungs
But I'm afraid that someone else will hear me
You can only blame your problems on my world for so long
Before it all becomes the same old song
As soon as we hit the hospital, I know we're gonna leave this town
And get new passports get out now

Tell that boy I'll leave you alone now
Like a stove, I'll turn my love down
Supra and the Prophet are both in the business of soul

I wanna scream I love you from the top of my lungs
But I'm afraid that someone else will hear me
Woah I wanna scream I love you from the top of my lungs
But I'm afraid that someone else will hear me
You can only blame your problems on my world for so long
Before it all becomes the same old song
As soon as we hit the hospital, I know we're gonna leave this town (I know we're gonna leave this town)
And get new passports and get get get get get out now
Get get get get get out now

 

This Ain't A Scene, It's an Arms Race

I am an arms dealer
Fitting you with weapons in the form of words
And don't really care which side wins
As long as the room keeps singing
That's just the business I'm in, yeah

This ain't a scene, it's a goddamn arms race
This ain't a scene, it's a goddamn arms race
This ain't a scene, it's a goddamn arms race
I'm not a shoulder to cry on
But I digress

I'm a leading man
and the lies I weave are, oh so intricate,
Oh so intricate
[x2]

I wrote the gospel on giving up
(You look pretty sinking)
But the real bombshells have already sunk
(Prima donnas of the gutter)
At night we're painting your trash gold while you sleep
Crashing not like hips or cars,
No, more like p-p-p-parties

This ain't a scene, it's a goddamn arms race
This ain't a scene, it's a goddamn arms race
This ain't a scene, it's a goddamn arms race
This bandwagon's full
Please, catch another

I'm a leading man
and the lies I weave are, oh so intricate,
Oh so intricate
[x2]

Yeah
Whoa-oh

All the boys who the dance floor didn't love
And all the girls whose lips couldn't move fast enough
Sing, until your lungs give out

This ain't a scene, it's a goddamn arms race
This ain't a scene, it's a goddamn arms race
(Now you)
This ain't a scene, it's a goddamn arms race
(Wear out the groove)
This ain't a scene, it's a goddamn arms race
(Sing out loud)
This ain't a scene, it's a goddamn arms race
(Oh, oh)
This ain't a scene, it's a goddamn arms race

I'm a leading man
and the lies I weave are, oh so intricate,
Oh so intricate
[x2]

 

Thriller

[Jay Z:]
Yeah, what you critics said would never happen.
We dedicate this album to anybody, people said couldn't make it.
To the fans that held us down till everybody came around.
Welcome. It's here.

Last summer we took threes across the board
But by fall we were a cover story "now in stores"
Make us poster boys for your scene
But we are not making an acceptance speech
I found the safest place to keep all our old mistakes
Every dot com's refreshing for a journal update

So long live the car crash hearts
Cry on the couch all the poets come to life
Fix me in 45

So long live the car crash hearts
Cry on the couch all the poets come to life
Fix me in 45

I can take your problems away with a nod and a wave
Of my hand, 'cause that's just the kind of boy that I am
The only thing I haven't done yet is die
And it's me and my plus one at the afterlife
Crowds are won and lost and won again
But our hearts beat for the diehards

So long live the car crash hearts
Cry on the couch all the poets come to life
Fix me in 45

So long live the car crash hearts
Cry on the couch all the poets come to life
Fix me in 45

Long live the car crash hearts
(Long live the car crash hearts)
Long live the car crash hearts
(Long live the car crash hearts)

Long live the car crash hearts
Cry on the couch all the poets come to life
Fix me in 45

Hehe... Woo!

[Jay Z:]
Young F-O-B.
Let's go.

 

Tiffany Blews

I'm not a crybaby
I'm the crybaby
A caterpillar that got stuck
Mr. moth come quick with any luck
A long walk to a dark house
A Roman candle heart keep us far apart
I got your body doing alright
Hate me baby maybe i'm a piece of art

My friends all lie and say
They only want the best wishes for me
Oh, 3 2 1
We go live...

Ohh baby you're a classic
Like a little black dress
You're a faded moon
Stuck on a little hot mess (little hot mess)
And ohh baby you're a classic
Like a little black dress
But you'll be faded soon
Stuck on a little hot mess (little hot mess)

I can make your heart slow
I can feel the weather in my bones
Wish Hard enough I can turn it to what I like
Your pupils big rolling like dice

They say they only want the best wishes for me (they only want the best for me)
Oh, 3 2 1
We go live...

Ohh baby you're a classic
Like a little black dress
You're a faded moon
Stuck on a little hot mess (little hot mess)
And ohh baby you're a classic
Like a little black dress
But you'll be faded soon
Stuck on a little hot mess (little hot mess)

I'm not the boy I was before
What I am is just venting, venting
Dear gravity, you've held me down in this starless city
I'm not the boy I was before
What I am is just venting, venting
Dear gravity, you've held me down in this starless city

They say they only want the best wishes for me (they only want the best for me)
Oh, 3 2 1
We go live...

Ohh baby you're a classic
Like a little black dress
You're a faded moon
Stuck on a little hot mess (little hot mess)
And ohh baby you're a classic
Like a little black dress
But you'll be faded soon
Stuck on a little hot mess (little hot mess)

 

Turnpike Gates

We would drag ourselves to bed.
And sleep took everything I had.
I kept it up till he would call.
You made me feel like a criminal.
And then there's you,
You kept a smile though I would always walk the wire.

You gave it all.
I gave you reason to have doubt.
I had to get out of there.
I took the stairs.
I don't wanna fight with you if I can't be the one to have you.
You sat that chair like a queen in the kitchen.
I memorized the lines your eyes made at every squint you shot my way.

We would drag ourselves to bed.
And sleep took everything I had.
I kept it up till he would call.
You made me feel like a criminal.
And then there's you,
you kept a smile though I would always walk the wire.

But you're miserable and I'm useless,
Always making up excuses.
I made you cry too many times.
So I'm hanging up that line.
I'm throwing rocks at your floor.
I'm knocking down your front door.
I'm desperate tonight and I just wanna fight.
It's my confusion that lets me act so cold.
So now I'll go, go, go.
And you wanna be just left alone.
Put down that phone, cause if you want me just call out "hey boy".

 

Untitled

I speak fast and I'm not gonna repeat myself
So listen carefully to every word I say:
"I'm the only one who's gonna get away with making excuses today,

You're appealing to emotions that I simply do not have"
Blackmailed myself
Cause I ain't got anyone else
"This is a stick up
Give us all your inspiration"
I've got the red carpet blues baby

"Put your hands in the air and don't make a sound
But don't get the wrong idea
We're gonna shoot you
We're gonna shoot you
And there's nothing in your head or pocket, throat or wallet
That could change just how this goes
No
We're gonna shoot you
We're gonna shoot you"

When I said that I'd return to you I meant more like a relapse
Now again I think "His and her's" "For better or worse"
But the only ring I want buried with me are the ones around my eyes

"You're appealing to emotions that I simply do not have"
I've got the red carpet blues baby

"Put your hands in the air and don't make a sound
But don't get the wrong idea
We're gonna shoot you
We're gonna shoot you
And there's nothing in your head or pocket, throat or wallet
That could change just how this goes"
And everyone shakes to the beat with a barrel down their throat

 

We Don't Take Hits, We Write Them

And you lock the house to keep your secret from coming out
I wont, No. I'm sorry because you're old news

And my life is holding our heads to this gun
You and your new boy think you can come in and keep me off, but you're wrong

I find myself on the street out in front of your house, you can kiss safe thoughts goodbye.
I'm coming up to break your heart.
You're sleeping with the light on like you're dying to be found out.

And you lock the house to keep your secret from coming out
I wont, No. I'm sorry because you're old news

And my life is holding our heads to this gun
You and your new boy think you can come in and keep me off, but you're wrong

I find myself on the street out in front of your house, you can kiss safe thoughts goodbye.
I'm coming up to break your heart.
You're sleeping with the light on like you're dying to be found out.

I find myself on the street out in front of your house, you can kiss safe thoughts goodbye.
I'm coming up to break your heart.
You're sleeping with the light on like you're dying to be found out.

(And you lock the house)
And you lock the house
Oh,oh,oh,oh,oh
And you lock the house
And you lock the house
Oh,oh,oh,oh,oh,oh

 

West Coast Smoker

Wishes bounce me weightless
The infrared scope of pointlessness
The bulls are sedated
And this fight's fixed
Don't feel bad for the suicidal cats
Gotta kill themselves 9 times before they get it right
The PA system keeps my heart, heart beating tonight, yeah

Oh hell yes
I'm a nervous wreck
Oh hell yes
The drugs just make me reset
Knock once for the father, twice for the son
Three times for the holy ghost.

Come in the water's warm
Come on like a sugar cube
But with a kick in the head
Like Putting Wings on Lead
Your eyes are blocking my starlight
I'm the last of my kind (and that's all that should matter t-t-to you)
Follow the disorganized religion of my head
And we'll never get through customs
Let's just take off again instead

Got my degree in the gutter
My heart broken in the dorms of the Ivy League

Oh hell yes
I'm a nervous wreck
Oh hell yes
The drugs just make me reset
Knock once for the father, twice for the son
Three times for the holy ghost.

Knock once for the father, twice for the son
Three times for the holy ghost.

I'm a nervous wreck, I'm a nervous wreck,
I'm a nervous wreck, and I'm n-n-n-nervous wreck

I'm a nervous wreck
I'm a nervous wreck
Oh hell yes
The drugs just make me reset
Knock once for the father, twice for the son
Three times for the holy ghost (three times)
Three times for the holy ghost (three times)
Three times for the holy ghost

 

What's This?

What's this? What's this?
There's color everywhere
What's this?
There's white things in the air
What's this?
I can't believe my eyes
I must be dreaming
Wake up, Jack, this isn't fair
What's this?

What's this? What's this?
There's something very wrong
What's this?
There's people singing songs

What's this?
The streets are lined with
Little creatures laughing
Everybody seems so happy
Have I possibly gone daffy?
What is this?
What's this?

There's children throwing snowballs
Instead of throwing heads
They're busy building toys
And absolutely no one's dead

There's frost on every window
Oh, I can't believe my eyes
And in my bones I feel the warmth
That's coming from inside

Oh, look
What's this?
They're hanging mistletoe, they kiss
Why that looks so unique, inspired
They're gathering around to hear a story
Roasting chestnuts on a fire
What's this?

What's this?
In here they've got a little tree, how queer
And who would ever think
And why?

They're covering it with tiny little things
They've got electric lights on strings
And there's a smile on everyone
So, now, correct me if I'm wrong
This looks like fun
This looks like fun
Oh, could it be I got my wish?
What's this?

Oh my, what now?
The children are asleep
But look, there's nothing underneath
No ghouls, no witches here to scream and scare them
Or ensnare them, only little cozy things
Secure them in their dreamland...

What's this?

The monsters are all missing
And the nightmares can't be found
And in their place there seems to be
Good feeling all around

Instead of screams, I swear
I can hear music in the air
The smell of cakes and pies
Are absolutely everywhere

The sights, the sounds
They're everywhere and all around
I've never felt this good before
This empty place inside me has been filling up
I simply cannot get enough

I want it, oh, I want it
Oh, I want it for my own
I've got to know
I've got to know
What is this place that I have found?
What is this?

 

What a Catch, Donnie

I got troubled thoughts
And the self-esteem to match
What a catch, what a catch

You'll never catch us
So just let me be
Said I'll be fine
Till the hospital or American Embassy
Miss Flack said I still want you back
Yeah, Miss Flack said I still want you back

I got troubled thoughts
And the self-esteem to match
What a catch, what a catch
And all I can think of
Is the way I'm the one
Who charmed the one
Who gave up on you
Who gave up on you

They say the captain
Goes down with the ship
So, when the world ends
Will God go down with it?
Miss Flack said I still want you back
Yeah, Miss Flack said I still want you back

I got troubled thoughts
And the self-esteem to match
What a catch, what a catch
And all I can think of
Is the way I'm the one
Who charmed the one
Who gave up on you
Who gave up on you

What a catch
What a catch
What a catch
What a catch

I will never end up like him
Behind my back, I already am
Keep a calendar
This way you will always know

I said -

I got troubled thoughts
And the self-esteem to match
What a catch, what a catch
And all I can think of
Is the way I'm the one
Who charmed the one
Who gave up on you
Who gave up on you

Na na na na na na
(where is your boy tonight i hope he is a gentle man maybe he wont find out )
Na na na na na na

Na na na na na na

Na na na na na na
(yeah one more time thanks for the memeories, even though they weren't so great)
Na na na na na na

I got troubled thoughts
And the self-esteem to match
What a catch, what a catch

 

Where Did the Party Go

Na, na, na, na, na, na,
Na, na, na, na

[Verse 1]
I'm here to collect your heart,
It's the only reason that I sing
I don't believe a word you say,
But I can't stop listening

This is the story of how they met,
Picture was on the back of a pack of cigarettes,
And when she touched him he turned ruby red
A story that they'll never forget
Never forget

[Bridge]
And all the boys are smoking Menthols,
Girls are getting back rubs,
I will drift to you if you make yourself shake fast enough

My old aches become new again
My old friends become exes again

[Hook]
Oh where did the party go?
We were ending it on the phone
I'm not gonna go home alone
Where, where did the party go?

Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na

[Verse 2]
I know I expect too much
And not enough all at once
You know I only wanted fun
And you got me all fucked up
Oh no

I looked for your name ouija board
And you're making magic oh dear lord
You and me are the difference between real love
And the love on TV, love on TV

[Bridge]

[Hook]

All the kids who screamed (we weren't the same)
In sweaty rooms
Now we're doomed to organizing walk-in closets like tombs

Silent film stars stuck in talking cinema light
So let's fade away together one dream at a time

[Bridge]
Na, na, na, na, na, na,
Na, na, na, na

[Hook]

 

Where is Your Boy Tonight

Where is your boy tonight?
I hope he is a gentleman.
Maybe he won't find out what I know
You were the last good thing about this part of town.

When I wake up
I'm willing to take my chances on
Hope I forget
That you hate him more than you notice
I wrote this for you.(for you, ohh..)

You need him
I could be him.
I could be an accident, but I'm still trying.
That's more than I can say for him.(yeah!)

Where is your boy tonight?
I hope he is a gentleman.
Maybe he won't find out what I know
You were the last good thing about this part of town.

Someday I'll appreciate it in value
Get off my ass and call you
The meantime I'll sport
My brand new fashion of waking up with pants off
At four in the afternoon.

You need him
I could be him
I could be an accident, but I'm still trying.
That's more than I can say for him. (yeah!) (1,2,3,4!)

Where is your boy tonight?
I hope he is a gentleman.
Maybe he won't find out what I know
You were the last good thing about this part of town

[guitar solo]

[Won't find out, maybe he wont find out]

Where is your boy tonight?
I hope he is a gentleman.
Maybe he won't find out what I know
You were the last good thing about this part of town.

Where is your boy tonight?
I hope he is a gentleman.
(he won't find out!)
Maybe he won't find out what I know
You were the last good thing about this part of town.

 

W.A.M.S.

I'm a young one
Stuck in the thoughts
Of an old ones head
When all the others were just stirring awake
I'm trying to trick myself to fall asleep again

My head's in heaven
My soles are in hell
Let's meet in the purgatory of my hips and get well

Hurry, hurry
You put my head in such a flurry, flurry
Feckle,Feckle
What makes you so special?
On what makes you so special?
I'm gonna leave you
I'm gonna teach you
How we're all alone

Guild me, build me
It's your club, so let me in (let me in)
The glory or how boring
It is inside your skin

My head's in heaven
My soles are in hell
Let's meet in the purgatory of my hips and get well

Hurry, hurry
You put my head in such a flurry, flurry
Feckle,Feckle
What makes you so special?
On what makes you so special?
I'm gonna leave you
I'm gonna teach you
How we're all alone

(Instrumental break)

Hurry, hurry
You put my head in such a flurry, flurry
Feckle,Feckle
What makes you so special?
On what makes you so special?
I'm gonna leave you
I'm gonna teach you
How we're all alone

Mamma,
If we don't take the medication.
We won't sleep for days
We won't sleep for days.

And Mamma,
If we pray to the lord,
Does he sing on the stage?
Oh does he sing on the stage?

We wasted out
In the back of a long dark car.
And I'm a sunshine machine.

I want to get stuck(uh)
I want to get stuck
And be all day in your memories.

 

XO

I comb the crowd and pick you out
My mouth moves too fast for you to figure it out
It starts eyes closed to fingers crossed
"To I swear, I say"
"To I swear, I say"

To hands between legs, to "whatever it takes"
To drinks at the club to the bar
To the keys to your car
To hotel stairs to the emergency exit door

To the love, I left my conscience pressed
Between the pages of the Bible in the drawer
"What did it ever do for me" I say (I say, I say, I say)
It never calls me when I'm down
Love never wanted me
But I took it anyway
Put your ear to the speaker
And choose love or sympathy
But never both
Love never wanted me

"I hoped you choked
And crashed your car"
Hey "tear catcher", that's all that you are
And ever were
From the start
I swear, I say
I swear, I say

To hands between legs, to "whatever it takes"
To drinks at the club to the bar
To the keys to your car
To hotel stairs to the emergency exit door

To the love, I left my conscience pressed
Between the pages of the Bible in the drawer
"What did it ever do for me" I say
It never calls me when I'm down
Love never wanted me
But I took it anyway
Put your ear to the speaker
And choose love or sympathy
But never both, no

To the love I left my conscience pressed
Through the keyhole I watched you dress
Kiss and tell
(Loose lips sink ships)

To the love I left my conscience pressed
Through the keyholes I watched you dress
Kiss and tell
(Loose lips sink ships)
[x2]

To the love I left my conscience pressed <i>[x3]
Between the pages of the Bible in the drawer
"What did it ever do for me" I say

 

You're a Concrete Boy Now (Do Your Part To Save the Scene And Stop Going To Shows)

This has been said so many times that I'm not sure if it matters
But we never stood a chance
And I'm not sure if it matters
If you are the shores, I am the waves begging for big moons
I'm mailing letters to addresses in a ghost town

Your secrets's out

I know this hurts, it was meant to
Your secret's out and the best part is it isn't even a good one
And it's mind over (you don't, don't) matter

This has been said so many times that I'm not sure if it matters
But it must be said again that all us boys are just screaming
Into microphones for attention
Because we're just so bored
We never knew that you would pick it apart, oh
I'm falling apart to songs about hips and hearts

Your secerts's out

I know this hurts, it was meant to
Your secret's out and the best part is it isn't even a good one
And it's mind over (you don't, don't) matter

I used to obsess over living
Now I only obsess over you
Tell me you like boys like me better
In the dark lying in on top of you
This has been said so many times that I'm not sure if it matters (x4)

I know this hurts, it was meant to (It was meant to)
Your secret's out and the best part is it isn't even a good one
And it's mind over (you don't, don't, don't, don't) matter

[talking:]
From day one i talked about getting out
But not forgeting about
How all my worst fears were letting out
He said why put a new address on the same old loneliness
When breathing just passes the time
Until we all just get old and die
Now talkings just a waste of breath
And livings just a waste of death
And why put a new address on the same old loneliness?
And this is you and me
And me and you
Until we've got nothing left

 

You're Crashing But You're No Wave

The DA is dressed to the nines,
In the mirror he practices all his lines,
To his closing arguments, 12 hearts beat in favor,
I'm guessing that he read the morning paper
The headline reads "The Man Hangs", but the jury doesn't (jury doesn't)

And everyone's looking for relief,
United States Vs disbelief,
And mothers cast tears on both sides of the aisle
Clear your throat and face the world,
The verdict falls like bachelors for bad luck girls,
Only breathing with the aid of denial

Case open, case shut,
But you could pay to close it like a casket,
Baby boy can't lift his headache head,
Isn't it tragic
Wo wo wo wo wooo

He glances at his peers sitting 7 to 12,
Stacked on 1 to 6 the gallery is hushed,
Boys in three pieces dream of grandstanding and bravado,
The city sleeps in a cell notwithstanding what we all know,
Hang on a rope or bated breath, whichever you prefer

And everyone's looking for relief,
A bidding war for an old flame's grief,
The cause, the kid, the course, the charm and the curse,
Not a word that could make you comprehend,
Too well dressed for the witness stand,
The press prays for whichever headline's worse

Case open, case shut,
But you could pay to close it like a casket,
Baby boy can't lift his headache head,
Isn't it tragic
Wo wo wo wo

Fresh pressed suit and tie,
Unimpressed birds sing and die,
Can talk my way out of anything,
The foreman reads the verdict "in the above entitled actions, we find the defendant",
Guilty (guilty, guilty, guilty)

Case open, case shut,
But you could pay to close it like a casket,
Baby boy can't lift his headache head,
Isn't it tragic

Case open, case shut,
But you could pay to close it like a casket,
Baby boy can't lift his headache head,
Isn't it tragic,
Wo wo wo wo wooo

 

Young and Restless

Brothers and sisters, put this record down
Take my advice ('cause we are bad news)
We will leave you high and dry
It's not worth the hearing you'll lose

It's just past eight and I'm feeling young and reckless
The ribbon on my wrist says, "Do not open before Christmas."

We're only liars, but we're the best (we're the best)
We're only good for the latest trend
We're only good 'cause you can have almost famous friends
Besides, we've got such good fashion sense

Brothers and sisters, yeah, put these words down
Into your notebook (spit lines like these)
We're friends when you're on your knees
Make them dance like we were shooting their feet

It's just past eight, and I'm feeling young and reckless
The ribbon on my wrist says, "Do not open before Christmas."

We're only liars, but we're the best (we're the best)
We're only good for the latest trend
We're only good 'cause you can have almost famous friends
Besides, we've got such good fashion sense

We're only liars, but we're the best
We're only good for the latest trend

We're only liars, but we're the best
We're only good for the latest trend
We're only good cause you can have almost famous friends
Besides, we've got such good fashion sense

 

Young Volcanoes

When Rome's in ruins, we are the lions
Free of the coliseums
In poison places, we are anti-venom
We're the beginning of the end

Tonight the foxes hunt the hounds
It's all over now before it has begun
We've already won

We are wild, we are like young volcanoes
We are wild, Americana, exotica
Do you wanna feel a little beautiful baby?
Yeah!

Come on make it easy, say I never mattered
Run it up the flagpole
We will teach you how to make boys next door
Out of assholes

Tonight the foxes hunt the hounds
It's all over now before it has begun
We've already won

We are wild, we are like young volcanoes
We are wild, Americana, exotica
Do you wanna feel a little beautiful baby?
Yeah!

We are wild, we are like young volcanoes
We are wild, Americana, exotica
Do you wanna feel a little beautiful baby?
Yeah!

 

Your Name is Crushed in My Mind

If I had one last moment,
Until my head is empty
My hands would be at your throat,
or maybe on your hips.
Before you say goodbye tonight,
Baby, just tell me this
"You'll always be my only love, always and forever hun."

Tonight is the night when I surrender
Myself to you. I give up, this is over.
Now and forever more, baby walk out that door.

Kiss me one last time again, before
I go and change my mind, tell me what a dick I am.
Oh God, You're just too beautiful when you beg.

Tonight is the night when I surrender
Myself to you. I give up, this is over.
Now and forever more, baby walk out that door.
(x2)

Baby, walk out that door.
Baby, walk out that door.
Baby, walk out that door.
Baby, walk out that door.

 

Yule Shoot Your Eye Out

These are your good years
Don't take my advice
You never wanted the nice boys anyway
And I'm of good cheer
'Cause I've been checking my list
The gifts you're receiving from me
Will be

One awkward silence
And two hopes you cry yourself to sleep
Staying up, waiting by the phone
And all I want this year is for you to dedicate your last breath to me
Before you bury yourself alive

Don't come home for Christmas
You're the last thing I wanna see
Underneath the tree
Merry Christmas, I could care less

Happy New Years, baby
You owe me
The best gift I will ever ask for
Don't call me up, when the snow comes down
Its the only thing I want this year

One awkward silence
And two hopes you cry yourself to sleep
Staying up, waiting by the phone
And all I want this year is for you to dedicate your last breath to me
Before you bury yourself alive

Don't come home for Christmas
You're the last thing I wanna see
Underneath the tree
Merry Christmas, I could care less

Don't come home for Christmas
You're the last thing I wanna see
Underneath the tree (Don't come home for Christmas)
Merry Christmas, I could care less

Don't come home for Christmas
You're the last thing I wanna see
Underneath the tree (Don't come home for Christmas)
Merry Christmas, I could care less

[Patrick, in a lisp:]
Sweet! They've recorded a Christmas song!
They must've spent a lot of money on this...
But this one time, this one Christmas I got this-
[beeps Deck the Halls]
