1. Disclaimer

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the disclaimer
That's right, the disclaimer
This American apple pie institution known as parental discretion
Will cleanse any sense of innuendo or sarcasm
From the lyrics that might actually make you think
And will also insult your intelligence at the same time
So protect your family
This album contains explicit depictions of things which are real
These real things are commonly known as life
So, if it sounds sarcastic, don't take it seriously
If it sounds dangerous, do not try this at home or at all
And if it offends you, just don't listen to it




2. The Meaning of Life

On the way, trying to get where I'd like to stay
I'm always feeling steered away by someone trying to tell me
What to say and do, I don't want it, I gotta go find my own way
I gotta go make my own mistakes, sorry man for feeling
Feeling the way I do
On yeah, oh yeah, open wide and they'll shove in their meaning of life
Oh yeah, oh yeah, but not for me I'll do it on my own
Oh yeah, oh yeah, open wide and swallow their meaning of life
I can't make it work your way, thanks but no thanks
By the way, I know your path has been tried and so
It may seem like the way to go
Me, I'd rather be found trying something new
And the bottom line in all of this seems to say
There's no right and wrong way
Sorry if I don't feel like living the way you do
On yeah, oh yeah, open wide and they'll show you their meaning of life
Oh yeah, oh yeah, but not for me I'll do it on my own
Oh yeah, oh yeah, open wide and swallow their meaning of life
I can't make it work your way, thanks but no thanks
On yeah, oh yeah, open wide and they'll show you their meaning of life
Oh yeah, oh yeah, but not for me I'll do it on my own
Oh yeah, oh yeah, open wide and swallow their meaning of life
I can't make it work your way, thanks but no thanks




3. Mota
Mota!
Everyday, well it's the same
That bong that's on the table starts to call my name
I take a hit and zone out again
I'll be paranoid and hungry by a quarter to ten
Watching reruns on my TV, I'm laughing off my ass at Three's Company
I don't know if I'm understood
But hearing Jimmy Buffett never sounded so good
Your memory's gone and so is your life your life
Mota Boy, but losing out just never felt so right
Your enemy's you and so is your life your life
Mota Boy, but losing out might feel okay all night
Mota!
I'm driving down to the barrio
Going 15 miles an hour cause I'm already stoned
Give the guy a twenty and wait in the car
He tosses me a baggie then he runs real far
I take a hit but it smells like a clove
Oh fuck I got a baggie of oregano
This ritual is destroying me, but I guess it could be worse
It could be methedrine
Your memory's gone and so is your life your life
Mota Boy, but losing out just never felt so right
Your enemy's you and your couch is your life your life
Mota Boy, but losing out might take, losing out might take you all night<
Mota!
Your memory's gone and so is your life your life
Mota Boy, but losing out just never felt so right
Your enemy's you and this is your life your life
Mota Boy, but losing out just never felt so right
Your memory's gone and so is your life your life
Mota Boy, but losing out just never felt so right
Your enemy's you and this is your life your life
Mota Boy, but losing out might feel okay all night
Losing out might feel okay all night



4. Me & My Old Lady

Me and my old lady lay in bed all day
And when I say I love her, well she rolls the other way
But really she don't mean it, everything she says
Still if I believe in love, there's nothing wrong
There's nothing wrong with my head
Me and my old lady sit and sip on wine
And when she says she loves me, well I say that love is blind
But really I don't mean it, everything I say
Still if she believes in love, there's nothing wrong
There's nothing wrong with her head
So what if we're making a scene now, you know she don't give a shit
When she's pawin' and grabbin' on me now, you know I don't mind a bit
It's all good and we ain't gonna change now, the world is unaware
So if you want to go on and stare, cause we don't care
We don't care
She ain't no ball and chain, she ain't no ball and chain
She ain't no ball and chain, she ain't no ball and chain
She ain't no ball and chain, she ain't no ball and chain
Me and my old lady suck each other dry
And when in that position I'm the luckiest man alive
Quenching our libidos, passing time away
Now that we believe in love, there's nothing wrong
There's nothing wrong with our head
So what if I'm making a scene now, you know she don't give a shit
When she's pawin' and grabbin' on me now, you know I don't mind a bit
It's all good and we ain't gonna change now, the world is unaware
So if you want to go on and stare, cause we don't care
We don't care
She ain't no ball and chain, she ain't no ball and chain
She ain't no ball and chain, she ain't no ball and chain
She ain't no ball and chain, she ain't no ball and chain



5. Cool to Hate

I hate a lot of things, I hate a lot of people that are lame
I like to hate stuff cause then I don't have to try and make a change
I hate teachers, I hate school
I hate the cheerleaders and anyone who's cool
I hate the office, I hate the Quad
Don't wanna learn nothing, I want to be a slob
It's cool to hate, it's cool to hat
Don't like nothing and I like that fine
It's cool to hate, It's cool to hate
I don't like nothing and I like that fine
I don't like nothing and like that fine
Yeah, I hate everything I even hate you too, so fuck you
I'm always thinking bad, I never have nothing good to say
I'd rather tear things down than build them up, it's easier that way
I hate the jocks and I hate the geeks
I hate the trendies, but I also hate the freaks
I hate Dr. Martens and Muscle T's
I'm only happy when I'm in my misery
It's cool to hate, it's cool to hate
Life's misery is just a waste of time
It's cool to hate, it's cool to hate
Life's misery is just a waste of time
Life's misery is just a waste of time
Yeah, I hate everything I even hate you too, so fuck you
It's cool to hate, it's cool to hate
It's cool to hate, it's cool to hate
I'll cut you down and give you lip, being positive's so unhip
I'll cut you down cause I'm a fool, being positive's so uncool
Being positive's so uncool, being positive's so uncool
I hate the jocks and I hate the geeks
I hate the trendies, but I also hate the freaks
I hate your band and I hate TV
I'm only happy when I'm in my misery
It's cool to hate, it's cool to hate
Don't like nothing and I like that fine
It's cool to hate, It's cool to hate
I don't like nothing and I like that fine
I don't like nothing and like that fine
Yeah, I hate everything I even hate you too, so fuck you



6. Leave it Behind

Rage burns can't push it aside now
Can't forgive this grudge is alive now
All the rage eats you up inside
Can you leave it behind, leave it behind
What a surprise, you're fucked with again, yeah
It's a way of life you need to get over
All the rage just eats you alive
Can you leave it behind, leave it behind
I don't know where it'll end
The sun has set and I can't be friends
I don't know if I can forgive
The day is long but you were so dead wrong
What a surprise, you're fucked with again, yeah
It's a way of life you need to get over
All the rage just eats you alive
Can you leave it behind, leave it behind
I don't know where it'll end
The sun has set and I can't be friends
I don't know if I can forgive
The day is long but you were so dead wrong
I don't know where it'll end
The sun has set and I can't be friends
I don't know if I can forgive
The day is long but you were so dead wrong



7. Gone Away

Maybe in another life, I could find you there
Pulled away before your time, I can't deal it's so unfair
And it feels and it feels like heaven's so far away
And it feels, yeah it feels like the world has grown cold
Now that you've gone away
Leaving flowers on your grave show that I still care
But black roses and Hail Mary's can't bring back what's taken from me
I reach to the sky and call out your name
And if I could trade I would
And it feels and it feels like heaven's so far away
And it stings, yeah it stings now the world is so cold
Now that you've gone away, gone away, gone away
I reach to the sky and call out your name
And if I could trade I would
And it feels and it feels like heaven's so far away
And it feels, yeah it feels like the world has grown cold
Now that you've gone away, gone away, gone away



8. I Choose

Look at me I'm fallin' off of a cliff now
I can still hear my mama yelling, no, no, no
But the words mean nothing can't catch up to me now
And the view is so beautiful all the way down
When I was a little boy suckin' juice from a bottle
Believing my perceptions were oh so real
But I don't know nothing, still knowing nothing
Was just enough for me to know the way I feel
This is life, what a fucked up thing we do
What a nightmare come true or a playground if we choose
And I choose
Look at me I'm swollen like a banana fish now
I'm never gonna make it out of my hole
But I keep on laughing, doesn't really matter
There's dozens of reasons for explaining my soul
When I was a teenager suckin' booze with the Vatos
Discussing who was gonna live to be 21
They said they wouldn't make it, they didn't make it
We're all naked when the day is said and done
This is life, what a fucked up thing we do
What a nightmare come true or a playground if we choose
And I choose
Don't know who made this all come true
But now while you're here, you just gotta do what you gotta do
Now if I wasn't such a weenie do you think you'd still love me
Pretending I'm an airplane on the living room floor
But like a lovely generator you stand right by me
And if words were wisdom I'd be talking even more
So I keep on falling as I'm looking back above me
Watching as my mama just becomes a little dot
Now I'm like DeNiro, I'm amarillo
And I'll never know when I hit the ground
This is life, what a fucked up thing we do
What a nightmare come true or a playground if we choose
And I choose, yeah, choose, I choose



9. Intermission

Yeah, intermission
Ahh, ahh



10. All I Want

Day after day your home life's a wreck
The powers that be just breathe down your neck
You get no respect, you get no relief
You gotta speak up and yell out your piece
So back off your rules, back off your jive
Cause I'm sick of not living to stay alive
Leave me alone, I'm not asking a lot
I just don't want to be controlled
That's all I want, that's all I want
That's all I want, that's all I want
How many times is it gonna take
Till someone around you hears what you say
You've tried being cool, you feel like a lie
You've played by their rules, now it's their turn to try
So back off your rules, back off your jive
Cause I'm sick of not living to stay alive
Leave me alone, I'm not asking a lot
I just don't want to be controlled
That's all I want, that's all I want
That's all I want, that's all I want
I said it before, I'll say it again
If you could just listen then it might make sense
So back off your rules, back off your jive
Cause I'm sick of not living to stay alive
Leave me alone, I'm not asking a lot
I just don't want to be controlled
That's all I want, that's all I want
That's all I want, that's all I want



11. Way Down the Line

Nothing changes cause it's all the same
The world you get's the one you give away
It all just happens again way down the line
There is a chain that's never broken
You know the story it's sad but true
An angry man gets drunk and beats his kids
The same old way his drunken father did
What comes around well it goes around
Nothing changes cause it's all the same
The world you get's the one you give away
It all just happens again way down the line
At seventeen Shannon is pregnant
As young as her mom when she had her
Her kid is never gonna have a dad
The same old way that Shannon never had
What comes around well it goes around
Nothing changes cause it's all the same
The world you get's the one you give away
It all just happens again way down the line
And all the things you learn when you're a kid
You'll fuck up just like your parents did
It all just happens again way down the line
And welfare moms have kids on welfare
And fat parents they have fat kids too
You know it's never gonna end
The same old cycle's gonna start again
What comes around well it goes around
Nothing changes cause it's all the same
The world you get's the one you give away
It all just happens again way down the line
And all the things you learn when you're a kid
You'll fuck up just like your parents did
It all just happens again way down the line



12: Don't Pick it Up

I saw a little kid as he walked around
He picked a candy bar up off the ground
He chowed about a half then his face turned blue
Turned out that candy bar was doggy-doo
Don't pick it up I say, unless you can throw it away
Don't pick it up I say, you're gonna be bummed that you went that way
You're out there makin' bacon, no scrutiny
You mess around too much and you got VD
You know you never think and you're sore today
You're gonna take it back to California
Don't pick it up I say, unless you can throw it away
Don't pick it up I say, you're gonna be bummed that you went that way
Pick it up, pick it up, pick it up
My friend was kinda hurtin' for a girl to try
He saw one that looked like Pat on Saturday Night Live
It had a pair of thingies but a mustache too
Not clearly male nor female so now what to do
Don't pick it up I say, unless you can throw it away
Don't pick it up I say, you're gonna be bummed that you went that way



13. Amazed

Sometimes I think I'm gonna drown cause everyone around's so hollow
I'm alone
Sometimes I think I'm going down but no one makes a sound
They follow and I'm alone
Yeah if I make it I'd be amazed just to find tomorrow
One more day and I'd be amazed just to see it waiting
And if I make it I'm still alone, no more hope for better days
But if I could change then I'd really be amazed
And when you know you can't relate to one more shiny face
Your heart breaks, no one cares
And when you know you can't go on cause everything is wrong
Your heart breaks, but no one's there
Yeah if I make it I'd be amazed just to find tomorrow
One more day and I'd be amazed just to see it waiting
And if I make it I'm still alone, no more hope for better days
But if I could change then I'd really be amazed
Yeah if I make it I'd be amazed just to find tomorrow
One more day and I'd be amazed just to see it waiting
And if I make it I'm still alone, no more hope for better days
But if I could change then I'd really be amazed



14. Change the World

I see the way the salesmen stare into the sun
I stood and watched them as they fell off one by one
And everyone's so blind, they're not to help mankind
Reach into your bag of tricks and pull another one
You don't want to change the world like you say
You're in it for yourself, no one else
You're ready saving yourself, you're gonna change the world
You're ready saving yourself, you're gonna change the world
Now when the day is set they'll line up all the same
And those that need the most will never get or gain
The ones you call your friends are failing you again
Reach into your bag of tricks and make it go away
You don't want to change the world like you say
You're in it for yourself, no one else
You're ready saving yourself, you're gonna change the world
You're ready saving yourself, you're gonna change the world
And since you ain't what you say then just go away
Cause some don't lie
Go one now, save yourself, go one now, save yourself
Go one now, save yourself, go one now, save yourself
