Lyrics

1. YOU KNOW YOU'RE RIGHT

I will never bother you
I will never promise to
I will never follow you
I will never bother you

Never speak a word again
I will crawl away from God

I will move away from here
You won't be afraid of fear
No thought was put into this
And always known it will come to this
Things have never been so swell
I have never failed to fail

Hey, hey, hey (x3)
You know you're right (x3)

I'm so warm and calm inside
I no longer have to hide
Let's talk about someone else
Stinging soup begins to melt
Nothin' really bothers her
She just wants to love herself

I will move away from here
You won't be afraid of fear
No thought was put into this
Always known it'd come to this

Things have never been so swell
And I have never failed to fail

Hey, hey, hey (x5)
You know you're right (x17)
Hey, hey, hey.




2. ABOUT A GIRL

(I do...) I need an easy friend
(I do...) With an ear to lend
(I do...) I think you fit this shoe
(I do...) But you have a clue

I'll take advantage while
You hang me out to dry
But I can't see you every night
Free... (I do...)

(I do...) I'm standing in your line
(I do...) I hope you have the time
(I do...) I pick a number to
(I do...) Keep a date with you

I'll take advantage while
You hang me out to dry
But I can't see you every night
Free...

(I do...) I need an easy friend
(I do...) With an ear to lend
(I do...) I think you fit this shoe
(I do...) But you have a clue

I'll take advantage while
You hang me out to dry
But I can't see you every night
No, I can't see you every night...
Free...
I do... I do... I do... I do...




3. BEEN A SON

She should have stayed away from friends
She should have had more time to spend
She should have died when she was born
She should have worn the crow of thorns

She should have been a son...
She should have been a son...
She should have been a son...
She should have been a son...

She should have stood out in a crowd
She should have made her mother proud
She should have faller on her stance
She should have another chance

She should have been a son...
She should have been a son...
She should have been a son...
She should have been a son...

She should have been a son...
She should have been a son...
She should have been a son...
She should have been a son...

She should have stayed away from friends
She should have had more time to spend
She should have died when she was born
She should have worn the crow of thorns

She should have been a son...
She should have been a son...
She should have been a son...
She should have been a son....




4. SLIVER

Mom and Dad went to a show
They dropped me off at Grandpa Joe's
I kicked and screamed, said please no
Grandma take me home (8x)

Had to eat my dinner there
Mashed potatos and stuff like that
I couldn't chew my meat good
Grandma take me home (8x)

Said well good, just stop your crying
Go outside and ride your bike
That's what I did, I kicked my toe
Grandma take me home (8x)

After dinner I had ice cream
I fell asleep and watched TV
I woke up in my mother's arms
Aaaaah...
Grandma take me home (19x)
Wanna be alone.




5. SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT

Load up on guns and bring your friends
It's fun to lose and to pretend
She's over bored, self assured
Oh no, I know a dirty word

Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello
With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulato, an albino, a mosquito,
My libido
Yay... yay... yay...

I'm worse at what I do best,
And for this gift I feel blessed
Our little group has always been
And always will until the end

Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello
With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulato, an albino, a mosquito,
My libido
Yay... yay... yay...

And I forget just why I taste
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile
I found it hard, it was hard to find
Oh well, whatever, nevermind

Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello, how low?
Hello, hello, hello
With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulato, an albino, a mosquito,
My libido,
A denial, a denial, a denial, a denial, a denial,
A denial, a denial, a denial, a denial...




6. COME AS YOU ARE

Come as you are, as you were,
As I want you to be,
As a friend, as a friend, as an old enemy
Take you time, hurry up,
The choice is yours, don't be late
Take a rest as a friend, as an old memoria,
memoria... memoria... memoria...

Come dowsed in mud, soaked in bleach,
As I want you to be,
As a trend, as a friend, as an old memoria,
memoria... memoria... memoria...

And I swear that I don't have a gun
No, I don't have a gun. No I don't have a gun...

'Ria... memoria... memoria... memoria...
And I don't have a gun
And I swear that I don't have a gun.
No I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun
No I don't have a gun
Memoria... memoria...




7. LITHIUM

I'm so happy because today I have found my friends
They're in my head
I'm so ugly, but that's okay, cause so are you
We've broken our mirrors
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care
And I'm not scared
Light my candles in a daze
Cause I've found God.

Hey, hey! Hey, hey! Hey, hey!
Hey, hey! Hey, hey! Hey, hey! Hey!

I'm so lonely that's okay I shaved my head
And I'm not sad
And just maybe I'm to blame for all I've heard
But I'm not sure
I'm so excited, I can wait to meet you there
But I don' t care
I'm so horny, but that's okay
My will is good.

Hey, hey! Hey, hey! Hey, hey!
Hey, hey! Hey, hey! Hey, hey! Hey!

I like you, I'm not gonna crack
I miss you, I'm not gonna crack
I love you, I'm not gonna crack
I kill you, I'm not gonna crack
I like you, I'm not gonna crack
I miss you, I'm not gonna crack
I love you, I'm not gonna crack
I kill you, I'm not gonna crack

I'm so happy because today I have found my friends
They're in my head
I'm so ugly, but that's okay, cause so are you
We've broken our mirrors
Sunday morning is everyday for all I care
And I'm not scared
Light my candles in a daze
Cause I've found God.

Hey, hey! Hey, hey! Hey, hey!
Hey, hey! Hey, hey! Hey, hey! Hey!

I like you, I'm not gonna crack
I miss you, I'm not gonna crack
I love you, I'm not gonna crack
I kill you, I'm not gonna crack
I like you, I'm not gonna crack
I miss you, I'm not gonna crack
I love you, I'm not gonna crack
I kill you, I'm not gonna crack...




8. IN BLOOM

Sell the kids for food
Weather changes moods
Spring is here again
Reproductive glands

Hey... He's the one who likes
All our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And he likes to shoot his gun,
But he knows not what it means,
Knows not what it means
And I say,
He's the one who likes
All our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And he likes to shoot his gun,
But he knows not what it means
Knows not what it means
And I say "Aahh"

We can have some more
Nature is a whore
Bruises on the fruit
Tender age in bloom

Hey... He's the one who likes
All our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And he likes to shoot his gun,
But he knows not what it means,
Knows not what it means
And I say,
He's the one who likes
All our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And likes to shoot his gun,
But he knows not what it means,
Knows not what it means
And I say "Aahh"

Hey... He's the one who likes
All our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And he likes to shoot his gun,
But he knows not what it means,
Knows not what it means
And I say,
He's the one who likes
All our pretty songs
And he likes to sing along
And he likes to shoot his gun,
But he knows not what it means,
Knows not what it means,
Knows not what it means,
Knows not what it means
And I say "Aahh".




9. HEART-SHAPED BOX

She eyes me like a pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your heart-shaped box for a week
I was drawn into your magnet tar pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black

Hey... wait...
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey... wait...
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey... wait...
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice...
Your advice...

Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet
Cut myself on angel's hair and baby's breath
Broken hymen of your highness I'm left black
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back

Hey... wait...
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey... wait...
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey... wait...
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice...
Your advice...

She eyes me like a pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your heart-shaped box for a week
I was drawn into your magnet tar pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black

Hey... wait...
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey... wait...
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey... wait...
I've got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice...
Your advice... your advice... your advice...




10. PENNYROYAL TEA

I'm on my time with everyone
I have very bad posture

Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
Distill the life that's inside of me
Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
I'm anemic royalty

Give me a Leonard Cohen afterworld
So I can sigh eternally

I'm so tired I can't sleep
I'm a liar and a thief
Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
I'm anemic royalty

I'm on warm milk and laxatives
Cherry-flavored antacids

Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
Distill the life that's inside of me
Sit and drink Pennyroyal Tea
I'm anemic royalty.




11. RAPE ME

Rape me, rape me my friend
Rape me, rape me again

I'm not the only one. Aaaah...
I'm not the only one. Aaaah...
I'm not the only one. Aaaah...
I'm not the only one...

Hate me, do it and do it again
Waste me, rape me my friend

I'm not the only one. Aaaah...
I'm not the only one. Aaaah...
I'm not the only one. Aaaah...
I'm not the only one...

My favorite inside source
I'll kiss your open sores
Appreciate your concern
You'll always stink and burn

Rape me, rape me my friend
Rape me, rape me again

I'm not the only one. Aaaah...
I'm not the only one. Aaaah...
I'm not the only one. Aaaah...
I'm not the only one...

Rape me (rape me)... rape me (rape me)...
Rape me (rape me)... rape me (rape me)...
Rape me (rape me)... rape me (rape me)...
Rape me (rape me)... rape me (rape me)... rape me...




12. DUMB

I'm not like them
But I can pretend
The sun is gone
But I have a light
The day is done
But I'm having fun
I think I'm dumb
Or maybe just happy
Think I'm just happy
Think I'm just happy
Think I'm just happy

My heart is broke
But I have some glue
Help me inhale
And mend it with you
We'll float around
And hang out on clouds
Then we'll come down
Have a hangover
Have a hangover
Have a hangover
Have a hangover

Skin the sun
Fall asleep
Wish away
The soul is cheap
Lesson learned
Wish me luck
Soothe the burn
Wake me up

I'm not like them
But I can pretend
The sun is gone
But I have a light
The day is done
But I'm having fun
I think I'm dumb
Or maybe just happy
Think I'm just happy
Think I'm just happy
Think I'm just happy

I think I'm dumb. (12x)




13. ALL APOLOGIES

What else should I be
All apologies
What else should I say
Everyone is gay
What else could I write
I don't have the right
What else should I be
All apologies

In the sun...
In the sun I feel as one
In the sun...
In the sun...
Married...
Buried...

I wish I was like you
Easily amused
Find my nest of salt
Everything is my fault
I'll take all the blame
Aqua seafoam shame
Sunburn with freezerburn
Choking on the ashes of her enemy

In the sun...
In the sun I feel as one
In the sun...
In the sun...
Married...
Buried...
Married...
Buried...
Yey, yey, yey, yey...

All alone is all we all are. (13x)




14. THE MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD

We passed upon the stairs
We spoke in walls and web
Although I wasn't there
He said I was his friend
Which came as a surprise
I spoke into his eyes
I thought you died along
A long long time ago

Oh no, not me
We never lost control
The face to face
With the man who sold the world

I laugh and shook his hand
And made my way back home
I searched afar the land
For years and years I roamed
I gazed a gazy stare
We walked a million hills
I must have died along
A long long time ago

Who knows? Not me
I never lost control
You're face to face
With the man who sold the world

Who knows? not me
We never lost control
Your face to face
With a man who sold the world.




15. WHERE DID YOU SLEEP LAST NIGHT

My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through
My girl, my girl, where will you go?
"I'm going where the cold wind blows"
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

Her husband was a hard working man
Just about a mile from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
But his body never was found
My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through
Trough for me...

My girl, my girl, where will you go?
"I'm going where the cold wind blows"
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through
My girl, my girl, where will you go?
"I'm going where the cold wind blows"
In the pines... pines... sun... shine
I would shiver... the whole... night through.
