Lyrics

1. TWO OF A KIND

Hangin' out and lingerin' around
'cause you know where I'll be found
and I don't know how you do it
This obsession I must admit has shaken me up a bit
My solidarity now only comes in pairs
I'd like to see you before you see me
I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you leave
Showered by torrential praise
why it is I can't explain
Attempts to leave yield no avail
For me I don't know what's in store
All I want is nothing more
I don't deserve what I get
I have nothing to return.




2. HALF EMPTY BOTTLE

The ends don't always justify the means
but I know what it takes to get what I need
I've got the cure when passive protest just wont do
Just flick my Bic as I hold it to the fuse
Smash it up. Break it down
Bring it down, down to the ground
Tear it up. Burn it down
Burn it down, down to the ground
How long have we waited for the day when they tighten their grips and we slip away?
The sound of breaking glass drives me back up
It makes me whole when I've been down on my luck.




3. YURF RENDENMEIN

You keep on sayin' that you want to know me
but you never show me your true self
How can you ever expect someone else to know you
when all you're going to do is just pretend that you're someone else?
You keep on sayin' that you want to show me that you're really different
but your just the same
If you're really mindless then there is no way that I can win
maybe you're just one of them
or maybe it's just a game
You lie to yourself and remain alone
I'm not exactly sure of your motivation
I'm not exactly sure what you're tryin' to do
All I'm really sure is that you're not too impressive
and you're wearin' a mask that I can't see through
Maybe you're not looking for acceptance
maybe you're striving for something more
If it's status that you lust then why try to be one of us?
You're someone we'll never trust 'cause we know the score.

4. I WANNA GET A MOHAWK

I may be ten years old but I still know what's up
I wear my Cramps shirt almost every single day
I want to sag my pants
I want to pogo dance
but mom won't let me so I might just run away
I wanna ride my skate
I wanna stay out late
I want a mohawk but mom won't let me get one
I wanna go to shows
Don't wanna pierce my nose
I want a mohawk but mom won't let me get one
I may be in fourth grade, but I know what's going on
I listen to the Misfits almost every single day
Don't want to take a nap
I want a TV tat, but mom won't let me so I might just disobey.




5. BROWNIE BOTTOM SUNDAE

Into the dark is where you're draggin' me
and into your dark is where I never want to be
I know I'm not alone and I really want to leave
Into the dark is where you want to watch me bleed
I'm feelin' kinda trapped, I gotta go
I'm feelin' kinda trapped don't you know
I'm feelin' kinda trapped I gotta go. I gotta go
I'm being dragged down, for how long, I don't know
I'm being dragged down and I rise up way too slow
I know I don't belong here and I think I ought to go
I hope that I can leave here, leave here with my soul.




6. THE CHECKERED DEMON

Too much to find, so much so little time
So many images persist to shade my mind
Will I ever come around or will I just hit the ground?
Will I still be standing when it all comes down?
Why can't I seem to sort it out?
Why am I always filled with doubt?
So many people everywhere
so self absorbed without a care
Of their viral lives, I'd like to bleed them all
When all is drained, who shall hold?
When mindless bodies screw tortured souls
will somebody be there to catch me when I fall?
Why can't I seem to sort it out
Why am I always filled with doubt
How could I always be so blind?
Why can't I figure it out
I could always hope for change
could always hope to rearrange
But why not just abandon hope and tear it all apart now?




7. CEREAL WARS

Get up early in the morning, going to the store
Post, Kellogs, General Mills?
It's the cereal war
Fuckin' store never has the monsters and they never get more
Post, Kellogs, General Mills?
It's the cereal war
I hope sexual chocolate is in stock
it's got a condom in the box
I'll try some cocoa puffs today
What the fuck is Sonny anyway?
Some say Dino's are the best
they've got more marshmallows than the rest
There's not a lot of cocoa in cocoa crispies
and always stay away from wheaties
Now it's dinner time and I'm going back to the store
I had some Erkles, 'liked 'em a lot
It's the cereal war
I wish I were Calvin or Hobbes and then I could try sugar bombs
The soggies will never get Cap'n Crunch
I guess I'll have Crunch Berries for lunch
Breakfast cereals need to be sweet
that's the only kind I'll eat
Give me sugar not nuts and twigs!
Do I look like a fuckin' squirrel to you?




8. THE MOTHER IN ME

Caught in a world that's plagued by something they called love
A paradigm of illness is the beast I have become
The sights that I have seen could nearly bring me to my knees
I've seen exactly what it is I never want to be
but I keep it deep inside myself
It's within me
Keep it deep within yourself and sink with me
Last night I had the misfortune to see it all first hand
"Evacuate the premises" was the innate first command
What drives the need for all of this?
And will I ever understand?
Has someone failed to tell me of this master plan?
But I keep it deep inside myself
It's within me
Keep it deep within yourself and sink with me.




9. RIZZO IN THE BOX

I'm always around you to show that I care but I don't know what for
It seems to me that you couldn't care less so I'm not going to do it anymore
I see no reason why I've placed such a value on you
but my thoughts have changed now
I've opened my eyes and now I'm through
Lookin' back at my short life, the few pleasures that I've found
all your misconceptions pummel me into the ground
Now, I look at your small life and it doesn't mean a bit
I pick myself up off the ground 'cause I don't give a shit
They say all good things come to an end, I wish this didn't apply
You were once someone I called my friend
but that's all now changed and I don't know why
Things are very different now
You've got nothing to say
It' s sad when someone you know very well decides to fuckin' die and go away.




10. KUNG-FU DEVIL

It's said and done, there is no turning back
I've made my choice, now I've gotta face the facts
Within myself, the hunger won't be subdued
because I can't have my cake and eat it to
I'm worn down from fighting with myself
I'll save my life and lose my mental health
I'm wiggin' out, everything is turnin' round
A bitter taste - no comfort can be found
An emptiness wells inside of me
there's no filling the void that will always be
A self control is all I have to hold
It's been too long
Maybe I have been to bold?
When you're bound by your own conviction a discipline can be your addiction
I'm warn down from fighting with myself
I'll save my life and lose my mental health
I've gone this far so I'll keep tryin'
Continue to fight, hope that I don't end up dying.




11. YOUR NAME HERE

It's the same old situation, it seems it's coming 'round again
I wont play the fool, I'm not screwin' around
I only play to win
I only want what I deserve so who are you tryin' to kid?
You can call it like you see it but I call it like it is
I'm sick of shruggin' off your petty little ways
The names are always changing
in the end it's just a game
We're runnin' in a circle, a never ending chase
you keep on steppin' out of reach but you won't win the race
No more waitin' around, no more hangin' around , no more draggin' me down
Everything's so easy for you but I've struggled to get this far
I'm alone in the fight
What's wrong, whose right?
I take it all to heart
Your true colors start to show
You call yourself a friend?
The teams are drawn
you chose your side
you'll get yours in the end
You play along to the same old song just as long as you can win
when someone better comes along
you're too cool to let them in
So now I've got you wonderin' if I've got it in for you
I'd like to tell you different but I can't because it's true.




12. NY-QUIL

Sleep
I want to stay in bed all throughout the day, no one bother me
I don't wanna open my eyes
I'll lie here in my room
I have no need to see
No one wake me I just want to stay in bed
No one move me I just want to lie right here, right in my warm bed
'Cause I don't want to see tomorrow
Here I am so happy, so just leave me be
I just want to stay
I do not bother you so don't you touch me
Get the fuck away!




13. DON'T MAKE ME ILL

Right now we've got a reason to live but it's got nothing to do with you
We've got a lot of places we're gonna go
a lot of things that we're gonna do
In your world we may be no one
but what makes you think you're someone?
We have got just what we need and we don't need you
No one
I can tell where our future lies
and you can tell we've got nothing to hide
The way things seem to me right now
everything will be just fined
We're going to do it all our way
We don't need you to darken our day
We've never given up before and this stand won't be our first time
No one's gonna tell me, I'm gonna do it my way
No one's gonna tell me how to get it done.




14. HIGHSCHOOL FOOTBALL HERO

Wanna be a highschool football hero with an S.A.T. score less then zero
I wanna try to drink my weight in beer
I wanna be a highschool football hero
Wanna score a touchdown so I can score after the game
Don't care about my future 'cause it is just another day
I'll rush for forty yards and drink four forties later on
I'm done with this brunette, someone pass another blonde
Wanna be a highschool football hero with an S.A.T score less than zero
I wanna try to drink my weight in beer
I wanna be a highshcool football hero
My coach tells me to drink my milk and wash it down with 'roids
I've gotta get my rest so I can party with the boys
My brain's put in upside-down so I'm just a little slow
I'll change my name to Bubba so that everyone will know I wanna be a highschool football hero.




15. SELF PITY

I'm always short on cash and my mind is in the trash,
can't find a way to get my head outta my ass.
I'm gettin' skinny as a bone 'cause I'm always stuck at home,
I'm livin' my life all fucked up and alone.

So once again, alone in my room,
only apparent future is my unhappy and doom.
So I just whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine,
whine, whine, whine, all the fuckin' time.

Hooked on bad caffeine, unless I get it I'm mean,
can't remember last when I was chipper and clean.
Goin' insane all I do is complain,
the only traits I show are depression and disdain.

So once again, alone in my room,
only apparent future is my unhappy and doom.
So I just whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine,
whine, whine, whine, all the fuckin' time.

The girl I love is going away, there is no way that she'll stay,
don't know how I'm gonna live my life this way.
Don't wanna have to try, I'll just sit around and cry,
maybe if I get lucky, I'll just fuckin' die!

So once again, alone in my room,
only apparent future is my unhappy and doom.
So I just whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine,
whine, whine, whine, all the fuckin' time.
And I whine, whine, whine, whine, whine, whine,
whine, whine, whine, all the fuckin' time.




16. KEY LIME PIE

Key lime pie, infatuation that shouldn't exist,
Key lime pie, indulge and I am in your debt.
Key lime pie, inspire me with foolish love,
Key lime pie, your green filling makes me inept.

Flaky crust is what I lust,
your fresh lime scent is a must.
Take me with coffee, never with tea,
you're the pie that pleases me.
People gawk, "Is that pie green?"
Ask for a bite, "Fuck you, i'm mean."

Key lime pie, cheapest hooker I've ever had,
Key lime pie, last slice gleaming, if you're out I'm mad.
Key lime pie, poke fun and laugh and jest,
Key lime pie, don't bother me digest, key lime pie.
