1: Burnout

I declare I don't care no more I'm burning up and out and growing bored In my smoked out boring room My hair is shagging in my eyes Dragging my feet to hit the street tonight To drive along these shit town lights I'm not growing up, I'm just burning out And I stepped in line to walk amongst the dead Apathy has rained on me Now I'm feeling like a soggy dream So close to drowning but I don't mind I've lived in this mental cave Throw emotions in the grave Hell, who needs them anyway

2: Having a blast

I'm talking all you down with me Explosives duct taped to my spine Nothing gonna change my mind I won't listen to anyone's last words There's nothing left for you to say Soon you'll be dead anyway No one is getting out alive This time I've lost my mind and I don't care So close your eyes And kiss yourself goodbye And think about the times you spent and what they've meant To me it's nothing I'm losing all my happiness The happiness you pinned on my Loniliness still conforts me My anger dwells inside of me I'm taking it all out on you and all the shit you put me though Do you ever think back to another time ? Did it bring you so down that you thought you lost your mind ? Do you ever want to lead a long trail of destruction and mow down any bullshit that confronts you ? Do you ever build up all the small things in your head To make one problem that adds up to nothing

3: Chump

I don't know you But I think I hate you You're the reason for my misery Strange how you've become my biggest enemy And I've never even seen your face Maybe it's just jealousy Mixing uo with violent mind A cicumstance that doesn't make much sense Or maybe I'm just dumb You're the cloud hanging out over my head Hail comes crashing down welting my face Magic ma, egocentric plastic man Yet you still got one over on me

4: Longview

Sit around and watch the tube but, nothings on Change the channels for an hour of two Twiddle my thumbs just for a bit I'm sick of all the same old shit In a house with unlocked doors And I'm fucking lazy Bite my lip and close my eyes Take me away to paradise I'm so damn bored I'm going blind !!! And I smell like shit Peel me off this velcro seat and get me moving I sure as hell can't do it by myself I'm feeling like a dog in heat Barred indoors from the summer street I locked the door to my own cell And I lost the key Sit around and watch the phone, but no one's calling Call me pathetic, call me what you will My mother says to get a job But she don't like the one she's got When masturbation's lost its fun You're fucking breaking Bite my lip and close my eyes Take me away to paradise I'm so damn bored I'm going blind And loneliness has to suffice Bite my lip and close my eyes Slipping away to paradise Some say, "Quit or I'll go blind." But it's just a myth

5: Welcome to paradise

Dear mother, can you hear me whining It's been three whole weeks Since I left your home This sudden fear has left me trembling Cause now it seems that I am out here on my own And I'm feeling so alone Pay attention to the cracked streets And broken homes Some call it the slums Some call it nice I want to take you through a wasteland I like to call my home Welcome to paradise A gunshot rings out at the station Another urchin snaps and left dead on his own It makes me wonder why I'm still here For some strange reason it's now Feeling like my home And I'm never gonna go Dear mother, can you hear me laughing It's been six whole months since I have left your home It makes me wonder why I'm still here For some strange reason it's now Feeling like my home And I'm never gonna go

6: Pulling teeth

I'm all busted up Broken bones & nasty cuts Accidents will happen But this time I can't get up She comes to check on me making sure I'm on my knees After all she's the one who put me in this state Is she ultra-violent ? Is she disturbed ? I better tell her I love her Before she does it all over again Oh god, she's killing me !!! For now I'll lie around Hell, that's all I can really do She takes good care of me Just keep saying me love is true Looking out my window fo Someone that passing by No one knows I'm locked in here All I do is cry

7: Basket case

Do you have the time to listen to me whine About nothing and everything all at once I am one of those Melodramatic fools Neurotic to the bone No doubt about it Sometimes I give myself the creeps Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me It all keeps adding up I think I'm cracking up Am I just paranoid ? I'm just stoned I went to a shrink To analyze my dreams She says it's lack of sex that's bringing me down I went to a whore He said my life's a bore And quit my whining cause it's bringing her down Grasping to control So you better hold on

8: She

She screams in silence A sullen riot penetrating through her mind Waiting for a sign to smash the silence with the brick of self control Are you locked up in a world That's been planned out for you ? Are you feeling like a social tool without use ? Scream at me until my ears bleed I'm taking heed just for you She's figured out all her doubts Were someone else's point of view Waking up this time to smash the silence with the brick of self control

9: Sassafras roots

Roaming 'round your house Wasting your time No obligation just Wasting your time So why are you alone ? Wasting your time When you could be with me Wasting your time I'm a waste like you With nothing else to do May I waste your time too ? Warding off regrets Wasting your time Smoking cigarettes Wasting your time I'm just a parasite Wasting your time Applying myself to Wasting your time

10: When I come around

I heard you crying loud all the way across town You've been searching for that someone and it's me out on the powl As you sit around feeling sorry for yourself Don't get lonely now Dry your whining eyes I'm just roaming for the moment Sleazin' my backyard so don't get so uptight you been thinking about ditching me No time to search the world around Cause you know where I'll be found When I come around I heard it all before So don't knock down my door I'm a loser and a user so I don't need no accuser To try and slag me down because I know I'm right So go do what you like Make sure you do it wise You may find out that your self doubt means nothing was ever there You can't go forcing something if it's just not right

11: Coming clean

Seventeen and strung out on confusion Trapped inside a roll of disillusion I found out what it takes to be a man Mom and dad will never understand Secrets collecting dust but never forget Skeletons come to life in my closet I found out what it takes to be a man Mom and dad will never understand What's happening to me Seventeen and coming clean for the first time I finally figured out myself for the first time I found out what it takes to be a man Mom and dad will never understand What's happened to me

12: Emenius sleepus

I saw my friend the other day and I don't know Exactly just what he became It goes to show It wasn't that long ago I was just like you And now I think I'm sick and I wanna go home How have I been, how have you been It's been so long What have you done with all your time I knew you back when And you... you knew me And now I think you're sick I wanna go home Anybody ever say no ? Ever tell you that you weren't right ? Where did all the little kid go ? Did you lose it in a hatefull fight ? And you know it's true

13: In the end

All brawn and no brains And all those nice things You finally got what you want Someone to look good with And light your cigarette Is this what you really want ? I figured out what you're all about And I don't think I like what I see SOOOOO... I hope I won't be there In the end if you come around How long will he last Before he's a creep in the past And you're alone once again ? Will you pop up again and be my "special friend" 'till the end ? And when will that be ?

14: F.O.D.

Something's on my mind It's been quite some time This time I'm on to you So where's the other face ? The face I heard before Your head trip's boring me Let's nuke the bridge we torched 2000 times before This time we'll blast it all to hell I've had this burning in my guts now for so long My belly's aching now to say Stuck down in a rut of dislogic and smut A side of you well hid When it's all said and dome it's real and it's been fum But was it all real fun

15: All by myself

i was alone. i was all by myself. no one was looking. i was thinking of you. oh yeah, did i mention, i was all by myself. all by myself. (3x) i went to your house, but no one was there. i went in your room. i was all by myself. you and me had such wonderful times when i'm all by myself. all by myself.
