1: Nice Guys Finish Last

Nice guys finish last You're running out of gas Your sympathy will get you left behind Sometimes you're at your best When you look the worst Do you feel washed up Like piss going down the drain Pressure cooker pick my brain and tell me I'm insane I'm so fucking happy I could cry Every joke can have it's truth and now the joke's on you I never knew you were such a funny guy Oh nice guys finish last When you are the outcast Don't pat yourself on the back You might break your spine Living on command You're shaking lots of hands Kissing up and bleeding all your trust Taking what you need Bite the hand that feeds You kill your memory

2: Hitchin' A Ride

Hey mister, where you headed? Are you in a hurry? I need a lift to happy hour say oh no Do you brake for distilled spirits? I need a break aswell The well that inebriates the guilt 1,2,1,2,3,4 Cold turkey's getting stale Tonight I'm eating crow Fermented salmonella poison oak no There's a drought at the fountain of youth And I'm dehydrating My tongue is swelling up I say 1,2,1,2,3,4 Troubled times You know I cannot lie I'm off the wagon and I'm hitchin' a ride There's a drought at the fountain of youth And now I'm dehydrating My tongue is swelling up I say Shit! Troubled times You know I cannot lie I'm off the wagon and I'm hitchin' a ride Hitchin' a ride [*8]

3: The Grouch

I was a young boy that had big plans Now I'm just another shitty old man I don't have fun and I hate everything This world owes me so fuck you Glory days don't mean shit to me I drank a six pack of apathy Life's a bitch and so am I The world owes me so fuck you Wasted youth and a fistful of ideas I had a young and optimistic point of view Wasted youth and a fistful of ideas I had a young and optimistic point of view I've decomposed yet my gut's getting fat Oh my God, I'm turning out like my Dad I'm always rude, I've a bad attitude The world owes me so fuck you The wife's a nag and the kids fucking up I don't have sex 'cause I can't get it up I'm just a grouch sitting on the couch The world owes me so fuck you

4: Redundant

We're living in repetition Content in the same old shtick again Now the routine's turning to contention Like a production line going over and over and over Roller coaster Now I cannot speak, I lost my voice I'm speechless and redundant 'Cause I love you's not enough I'm lost for words Choreographed and lack of passion Prototypes of what we were Went full circle 'til I'm nauseous Taken for granted now Now I waste it, I faked it, I ate it, now I hate it 'Cause I cannot speak, I lost my voice I'm speechless and redundant 'Cause I love you's not enough I'm lost for words, now I cannot speak Now I cannot speak, I lost my voice I'm speechless and redundant 'Cause I love you's not enough I'm lost for words

5: Scattered

I've got some scattered pictures lying on my bedroom floor Reminds me of the times we shared Makes me wish that you were here Now it seems I've forgotten my purpose in this life All the songs have been erased Guess I've learned from my mistakes Open the past and present now and we are there Story to tell and I am listening Open the past and present and the future too It's all I've got and I'm giving it to you Loose ends tied in knots leaving a lump down in my throat Gagging on a souvenir Lodged to fill another year Drag it on and on until my skin is ripped to shreds Leaving my self wide open Living out a sacrifice If you got no one and I got no place to go Would it be alright? Could it be alright?

6: All The Time

All the time Evertime I need it What's the time? I'd say the time is right Here's to me Let's find another reason Down the hatch And a bad attitude salud Wasting time, wasting time down a bum fuck road And I don't know where the hell it'll go Heirlooms and huffing fumes I'm picking up the pace And I'm gonna smash it straight into a wall All the time A "New Year's Resolution" How soon that we forget loving every minute Live it up on another let down salud Promises, promises, it was all set in stone Cross my heart and hope to die Sugar fix, dirty tricks and a trick question Guess I should have read between the lines Having the time of my life Watching the clock tick Having the time of my life Watching the clock tick All the time Where did all the time go? It's too late to say goodnight Time flies when you're having fun Times up when you work like a dog salud

7: Worry Rock

Another sentimental argument and bitter love Fucked without a kiss again and dragged it through the mud Yelling at brick walls and punching windows made of stone The worry rock has turned to dust and fallen on our pride A knocked down dragged out fight Fat lips and open wounds Another wasted night And no one will take the fall Where do we go from here? And what did you do with directions? Promise me no dead end streets And I'll guarantee we'll have the road

8: Platypus (I Hate You)

Your rise and fall Back up against the wall What goes around is coming back and haunting you It's time to quit Cause you ain't worth the shit Under my shoes or the piss on the ground No one loves you and you know it Don't pretend that you enjoy it or you don't care Cause now I wouldn't lie or tell you all the things you want to hear I HATE YOU I HATE YOU I HATE YOU I HATE YOU I heard you're sick Sucked on that cancer stick A throbbing tumor and a radiation high Shit out of luck And now your time is up It brings me pleasure just to know you're going to die Dickhead, fuckface, cock smoking, mother fucking, Asshole, dirty twat, waste of semen, I hope you die HEY Red eye, code blue I'd like to strangle you And watch your eyes bulge right out of your skull When you go down Head first into the ground I'll stand above you just to piss on your grave

9: Uptight

I woke up on the wrong side of the floor Made, made my way through the front door Broke my engagement with myself Perfect picture of bad health Another notch scratched on my belt The future just ain't what it used to be I got a new start on a dead end road Peaked, peaked out on reaching new lows Owed, I paid off all my debts to myself Perfect picture of bad health Another notch scratched on my belt The future's in my living room Uptight, I'm a nag with a gun yeah All night, suicide's last call I've been uptight all night I'm a son of a gun

10: Last Ride In

(instrumental)

11: Jinx

I fucked up again it's all my fault So turn me around and face the wall Read me my rights and tell me I'm wrong Until it gets into my thick skull A slap on the wrist A stab in the back Torture me, I've been a bad boy Nail me to the cross until you have won I lost before I did any wrong I'm hexed with regrets and bad luck Keep you distance 'cause it's rubbing off Or you will be damned to spend your life in hell Or earth with me tangled at your feet You finally met you nemesis disguised as your fatal long lost love So kiss it good bye Until death do we part You fell for a jinx for crying out loud

12: Haushinka

Haushinka is a girl with a peculiar name I met her on the eve of my birthday Did she know, did she know, before she went away Does she know? Does she know? But it's too damn late This girl has gone far away - now she's gone This girl has gone far away - now she's gone This girl has gone far away - now she's gone This girl has gone far away - now she's gone Now she's gone, now she's gone, she's all gone All I have now is a memory to date A cheap hat and cigarettes, and a peculiar name I didn't know, I didn't know, before she went away I know now, I know now, and it's too damn late Will she ever find her way? I'm too damn young to be too late, but am I? Yet again I'm kicking myself And I'll be here in battle scars Waiting for you Waiting for you now

13: Walking Alone

Come together like a foot in a shoe Only this time I think I stuck my foot in my mouth Thinking out loud and acting in vain Knocking over anyone that stands in my way Sometimes I need to apologize Sometimes I need to admit that I ain't right Sometimes I should just keep my mouth shut, or only say hello Sometimes I still feel I'm walking alone Walk on eggshells on my old stomping ground, Yet there's really no one left, that's hanging around Isn't that another familiar face? Too drunk to figure out they're fading away

14: Reject

Who the hell are you to tell me what I am And what's my master plan What makes you think that it includes you? Self-righteous wealth Stop flattering yourself So when the smoke clears here I am Your reject all-American Sucking up you social sect Making you a nervous wreck To hell and back and hell again I've gone You're not my type Not my type What's the difference between you and me? I do what I want, and you do what you're told So listen up and shut the hell up It ain't no big deal And I'll see you in hell So when the smoke clears here I am Your reject all-American Falling from grace, right on my face To hell and back and hell again I've gone

15: Take Back

You pushed me once too far again I'd like to break your fucking teeth Stick a knife in the center of your back You better grow some eyes in the back of your head I fight dirty, just like your looks Can't take, can't take, can't take anymore Take back, take back, take The taste of bad blood on the tip of my tongue An eye for an eye Gun for a gun Cold-cocked and I'm taking back what's mine Expect it when you're least expecting it No loss of love, the smell of regret Lights out can't take anymore Take back, take back, take back, take back Shit

16: King For A Day

Started at the age of 4 My mother went to the grocery store Went sneaking through her bedroom door To find something in a size 4 Sugar and spice and everything nice Wasn't made only for girls GI Joe in panty hose Is making room for the one and only King for a day, Princess by dawn King for a day in a leather thong King for a day, Princess by dawn Just wait 'til all the guys get a load of me My daddy threw me in therapy He thinks I'm not a real man Who put the drag in the drag queen Don't knock it until you tried it

17: Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)

Another turning point A fork stuck in the road Time grabs you by the wrist Directs you where to go So make the best of this test And don't ask why It's not a question But a lesson learned in time It's something unpredictable But in the end is right I hope you had the time of your life So take the photographs And still frames in your mind Hang it on a shelf of Good health and good time Tattoos of memories And dead skin on trial For what it's worth It was worth all the while It's something unpredictable But in the end is right I hope you had the time of your life It's something unpredictable But in the end is right I hope you had the time of your life It's something unpredictable But in the end is right I hope you had the time of your life

18: Prosthetic Head

I see you Down in the front line Such a sight for sore eyes You're a suicide makeover Plastic eyes Looking through a numbskull Sell effaced, what's his face You erased yourself so shut up You don't let up You have a growth that must be treated Like a sudden severe pain in the neck You can smell it but you can't see it No explanation identified 'cause You don't know You don't say And you got no reply Hey you, where did you come from? Got a head full of lead You're an inbred bastard son All dressed up, redblooded A mannequin Do or die, no reply Don't deny that you're synthetic You're pathetic
