Track Name: Stranger Danger
The sidewalk's a war zone
I do battle with the passing cars
He doesn't understand how he makes this continue.

Stranger danger,
For the dames that we all love.
Track Name: Your Fucking Victim Complex
He's been throwing rocks at freight trains, hoping that they'll crash,
'Cause then he'll have made a difference in this world gone mad;
He's the type to use oil paints, and get them on your dad's new recliner,
And never apologize.

The guy who'll get all resentful when a girl doesn't put out;
"That bitch, that prude, I had paid the right amount,
Of liquor and attention and texts with smiley emoticons."

Not that he'd want a girl who's "easy" anyway,
To him dating's all about value, so what would that say
About his worth to the world, he wants a girl,
To crash that freight train of a girl.

ALL YOU DUDES AT THIS PARTY TONIGHT,
YOU'RE ALL THIS FUCKING GUY.
THE WORLD OWES YOU NOTHING BUT A LIFE TO LIVE,
SO GROW SOME OVARIES. (x666)
Track Name: Frigid
Take a swig and now I'm in it
I'm stuck in love
So please help me be, help me be

You're not even doing
Anything to me,
And it hurts, goddamn it hurts.

That's not how it works it didn't
I am ever oh so frigid
Waited for me to visit;
I didn't, I didn't.

You watched me fall in and out of love
All the while, right by your side...

You watched me die

That's not how it works it didn't
I am ever oh so frigid
Waited for me to visit;
I didn't, I didn't.
Track Name: Sad Drunk
You are a best friend gone bad,
And I am the star of this horribly cliched, over-budget indie film.
So why not? I'll take a ride
At least these Djarum Blacks, they taste like Christmas and
I'll try to forget that my wish is my wish is...

To be with her and not you but it's
All seen through rose-tinted glasses,
She's not any better, there is no shelter
From my inability to deal with life.

But you're so good in the sack.
And that's what gives me hope
That life could ever hold this much bliss
Forget the sadness, me the sad mess.

Where did I learn to be
This passive aggressive, I can't communicate intelligently.
So I don't, I just let you know
That you are shit, we treat each other like shit.

And I could be with her and not you but it's
All seen through rose-tinted glasses,
She's not any better, there is no shelter
From my inability to deal with life.

But you're so good in the sack.
And that's what gives me hope
That life could ever hold this much bliss
Forget the sadness, me the sad mess.

Oh I'm the shittiest kid
South of 25th
Track Name: These Are All Just Things
I'm stuck in the mindframe
That everyone, everyone's the same.
I'm not just a ragging dame
To think that you want me, want me too.

I'm not gonna lie to you.
It hurts to be loved and not respected.

You tell me that I need help
But somehow you think I'm doing this to my self.
How you can you be so satisfied
To leave someone when they're hurting inside.
You tell me that I'm strong, oh but it feels so wrong.

I'm stuck in the mindframe
That everyone, everyone's the same.
I'm not just a ragging dame
To think that you want me, want me too.

I'm not gonna lie to you
It hurts to be loved and not respected.

You tell me that I need help
But somehow you think I'm doing this to my self.
How you can you be so satisfied
To leave someone when they're hurting inside.
You tell me that I'm strong, oh but it feels so wrong.
Track Name: Van Garden Party
It is my dream
To fight overseas
And kill some ragheads
It is my dream
To support our regime
Pay for my college tuition
It is my dream
To fight overseas
And kill some ragheads
Policing the world.

Look at all these awesome fucking guns
I would have been a cop but I wanted to shoot someone
Without filling out paperwork, this is hero's work
I'm a hero now, I'm a hero now.
But some just want a steady job
'Cause they didn't finish high school
One with benefits and solid pay
But the only benefit of this job is PTSD.

My momma always told me that she knew just what I'd be.
I'd save the world, be a modern-day superhero.
And here I am, saving the world while drinking a beer!

It is my dream
To fight overseas
And kill some ragheads
It is my dream
To support our regime
Pay for my college tuition
It is my dream
To fight overseas
And kill some ragheads
Policing the world.
Track Name: Moth Balls
I'm running past my ropes, and
I've got no more questions
I'm tired of these empty blokes
Shoving speech in my convictions.
Don't get these dishonest ways;
Don't get them honest.
I just want to play away and
Run away from this fire.

Please my petty heart
To run away
Please my petty heart
In the dark I played.

I'll never escape my head
Whatever's in my head
I'll never escape my head.

One day I took a walk
To find where my end might stay
Or new beginnings to hold my thoughts
No more petty ways
In a box I stayed all day
To work my piano keys and
Burn holes in my fingers from my guitar
My bloody lips soaked my reed so far and oh

Please my petty heart
Got me nowhere
Please my petty heart
Got me in these places.

Then I forced away my friends.
I was god knows dead.

I'm just a feeling dude
The one that falls behind
Too many holes to see
I know you can feel the signs
And when you're breaking me
And there is not to see.
And you're enjoying me
It's been proven time to time.
Track Name: Tom Hanks Enigma
So many things I want to tell you
Your eyes say let me in, let me in.
But you'll just tear me down, tear me down.
I'm already shrinking so small,
Blow me over and I'll fall more in love with you.
'Cause you're my peace of mind, you're my peace of mind.

Hold me closer as I cry
There's no one by my side, no one by my side.
No one left inside, no one.
I swear I'm just hiding come find me I wanna see your beautiful smile.

I'm sorry you're hurting I'm hurting too I guess that's why I love you.

Never leave me please I don't know how I'll breathe.
Track Name: Sun in the West
The sun in the west pierces my eyes with its glare
I apologize for all the things that I've done
I'm not good enough
I've never been good enough
Every bug on my face is deserved no doubt
I don't fight the burn, I put my eyes to the sky...

Put my eyes to the sky
I know what will make this right
The gas station's in sight.
Hot-wire that tanker and drive into the night.
Surely my justice is truest, surely my justice is right.

The gas pedal depresses as I pass all the houses of people I hate.
Though I know very few of them, set on my tank I'm coming.
Justice truest, justice right.
As I hit the building, the souls take flight.

I turn around see your body in flames;
You were never meant to be there.
You were never meant to be there;
It's hard to admit I had nothing to gain.
And now I have lost one true thing of value,
I longed for the cold months ago
Almost as much you do now
I'm sure you do now.

Fight for your life
(Sadness as I watch my crime)
Flames growing in size
(As my soul burns away)
You're warmer now
(I wish I was colder today)

I know what I'm doing
I've known all along.
I know.

You're gone.

The sun touches our ashes, smiles upon the night.
