1: Mother we just can't get enough

There's something about you, tears me inside out whenever youre around Theres something about you Speeding thru my viens until we hit the ground And there's something about this rush Take it away It made me feel so good I get a feeling, you get a feeling, we got a feeling like we could die And guess what mother We just cant get enough We just cant get enough Lover we just gotta get it up we just gotta get it up Thers something about you That tears me inisde out whenever youre around And theres something about you That makes me fly Youre a heart attack, just the kind I like and theres something about your kiss haunting and strange That makes me feel so good I get a feeling, you get a feeling we got a feeling Like we're alive (chorus) This world may not have too much time But baby I'm fine because baby you're mine We just cant't get enough You better give up, come on and give up give up your life it's you for me, and me for you You make my dreams come true Off the wall coming from me But I wanna see this through, my baby You're on my mind all the time I found a million dimes You rolled the dice, and lost them all And baby I just dont mind And incidentally mother (chorus) And I dont want no one if I cant have you a world of illusion But baby youre true I know I decieved you I once told you lies If you dont believe me Just look in my eyes Social Security Number please Credit card number please Money please Money please Money please Please deposit eighty five dollars for the next three minutes Or your call will be fucking disconnected immediately Aw yeah, all right, feel good tonight Aw yeah, all right, feel good tonight

2: You Get What You Give

Wake up kids We've got the dreamers disease Age fourteen we got you down on your knees So polite you're busy still saying please Frienemies who when you're down ain't your friend Every night we smash their mercedes-benz First we run and then we laugh till we cry But when the night is falling and you cannot find the light If you feel your dream is dying Hold tight You've got the music in you Don't let go You've got the music in you One dance left This world is gonna pull through Don't give up You've got a reason to live Can't forget you only get what you give Four a.m. we ran a miracle mile were flat broke but hey we do it in style The bad rich God's flying in for your trial (chorus) This whole damn world can fall apart You'll be ok follow your heart You're in harms way I'm right behind Now say youre mine (chorus) Fly high What's real can't die You only get what you give Just dont be afraid to leave Health insurance rip off lying fda big bankers buying Fake computer crashes dining Cloning while they're multiplying Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson You're all fakes Run to your mansions Come around We'll kick your ass in Don't let go One dance left

3: I hope I didn't just give away the ending

She wanted to be a nun Until that fateful day we met I beat the crucifix In a game of Russian roulette I burned my Beatles records Because she hated number nine She licked rock cocaine sucker Laughed, said her mom's doing mine well, are you an illusion, or am I just getting stoned Because I can't take it alone I can't take it alone I hope I didn't just give away the ending We started limping, Caught the handicap shuttle to town And yelled "God's healed us" As we ran off the bus the driver just frowned By the way this girl was sexy and she wouldn't touch you This may not be true But I said it so you'd feel involved with this song Are you an illusion Or am I just getting stoned Because I can't take it alone I can't take it alone I hope I didn't just give away the ending We caught a fey taxi driver I smiled the ride was free I felt like Amsterdam She wanted more drugs and maybe me I told her dealer I was broke He hired a camera man We did a porno film for coke I hear I'm big in Japan Are you an illusion Or am I just getting stoned Because I can't take it alone I can't take it alone I hope I didn't just give away the ending We went back to her kitchen Put the coke all in a can Tied up a T.V minister In walked her dad He started drinking coffee Too much sugar on the go He fell dead on the floor He thought the coke was swee t'n low well are you an illusion Or am I just getting stoned Because I can't take it alone I can't take it alone I hope I didn't just give away the ending Boy was she upset but then she stole her dad's wallet and I drove him to the hospital To sell all of his donatable body parts And this is where she dies They brought the depressed junkie in She shot his Cyanide up I guess she thought it was errol flynn I'm blamed in the confusion The police being phoned I don't even love you We weren't even friends It's just that I can't take it alone Uh, huh I can't take it alone I hope I didn't just give away the ending I hope I didn't just give away the ending I hope I didn't just give away the ending I hope I didn't just give away the ending I hope I didn't just give away the ending I hope I didn't just give away the ending Aw Jesus, ah shit I think I just gave away the ending

4: I don't wanna die anymore

Two months of fun Two years of pain Add it up And get a life of rain need to scream But too ashamed it's gonna rain it's gonna rain You wanna go you wanna stay you wanna you really blew my world I wanna live and there's only one way I don't wanna die anymore I want to live it up I don't want this high anymore But I can't give it up I won't live a lie anymore I need to give you up Won't you save me Two Months of sun A life of rain Add it up I'm on my own again Need to scream I'm so filled with rage It's gonna rain it's gonna rain You wanna go you wanna stay you wanna You really screwed my world I gotta live but you stand in the way I'm pullin out now "UHH" I don't wanna die anymore I want to live it up I don't want this high anymore But I can't give it up I won't live a lie anymore I need to give you up And "OH OH BABY" did you think that I was strong? Well "OH OH HONEY" can't ya see that you were wrong? "OH OH BABY" did you think that I was strong?

5: Jehovah made this whole joint for you

Meet a girl I met Carolina her parents jumped off Niagra Falls she broke her hips when she was a baby trying to hop the Berlin wall it's not that she's anti-American Although she shot a mayor at nine he looked just like the prez on T.V she didn't know in '63 he had died Does she think this world is all wrong Does she think I'll rob her and run When I ask where she gets her gun And simply says scat boy scat scat But isn't it a wonderful world Carolina Look at the birds in the sky Jehovah made this whole joint for you Carolina And isn't it so wonderful to be alive So original in her black lipstick Listening to some obscure band But isn't she pissed at all the other non-conformists who listen to that same obscure band But thats OK shes helping the enviroment By sipping on pure water and such Then screams we better start thinking about the ozone layer While tossing out a styrofoam cup Does she think this world is all wrong Does she think I'll rob her and run When I ask her where she gets her gun She simply says scat boy scat scat But isn't it a wonderful world Carolina Look at the birds in the sky Jehovah made this whole joint for you Carolina So isn't it so wonderful to be alive Real deep shit on her mind "Let's kill the world, take over everything" She says "We dont need politicians, they breed mistrust, And as a matter of fact did you steal my purse?" Yeah, but isn't it a wonderful world Carolina look at the birds in the sky Jehovah made this whole joint for you Carolina So isn't it wonderful to be alive Huh inn't beautiful to be a... Isn't it wonderful to be alive... Fuck yeah, it's so wonderful I feel like.. dying, Smiling...

6: Someday we'll know

90 miles outside chicago Can't stop driving I don't know why So many questions I need an answer Two years later, you're still on my mind Whatever happened to Emilia Earhart Who holds the stars up in the sky Is true love once in a lifetime Did the captain of the Titanic cry Someday we'll know If love can move a mountain Someday we'll know Why the sky is blue Someday we'll know Why I wasn't meant for you Does anybody know the way to Atlantis Or what the wind says when she cries I'm speeding by the place where I met you For the 97th time tonight (chorus) Someday we'll know Why Samson loved Delilah One day I'll go Dancing on the moon Someday you'll know That I was the one for you I bought a ticket to the end of the rainbow I watched the stars crash in the sea If I could ask God just one question Why aren't you here with me? (chorus) (Post Script: seeing you in february was great cliches eventually all come true "time heals all wounds" I went to get us our ninth drink and you ran out the door with another guy I woke up on the floor with my shoes on A smile on my face and I don't even care)

I looked for love in Memphis I looked for love in Rome Now that I finally got you I just wanna take you home I'm trying my best not to rush you Because rushing ain't no fun But are you breaking the law Or looking out for miracles I think it's time you tell me where we stand You've been taking my love We've been breaking the law You better start making my love Because I'm in need of a miracle Bedded a girl in Texas And went all the way in Spokane But I love you so much I'm content to hold your hand I ain't in no hurry I can't wait to be your man Are you taking my love Or breaking the law (breaking the law) I think it's time you tell me where we stand You've been taking my love We've been breaking the law You better start making my love Because I'm in need of a miracle But are you breaking the law Or looking out for miracles I think it's time you tell me where we stand You've been taking my love We've been breaking the law You better start making my love Because I'm in need of a miracle I took a train to Detroit And then I rode a plane to Memphis I've been all around this bad bad world Just trying to find some tenderness Taking my love We've been breaking the law You better start making my love Because I'm in need of a miracle See I took a train to New York And then I drove into Chicago, yeah I've been all around this mean mean world Only trying to find a heart of gold You've been taking my love We've been breaking the law You better start making my love Because I'm in need of a miracle

9: Gotta Stay High

I saw your eyes I had to run away I fell too deep in love There were no words to say I just had to get high One look inside And I knew right away I felt too much I did not have the strength I just ran to get high But lover there's something about your pushing me Pulling me That's saying don't go away I saw your eyes Fell back to yesterday An only child Until you let me stay I had no one on my side Good God I think I'm fallin' Too weak to stand Too scared to love again The damn has broke My soul is spilling all over your hands Take a look in my eyes Lover There's something about your pushing me Pulling me That's saying don't go away Ain't never gonna be another I see your eyes I'll never run away I fell too deep in love Got just five words to say We just gotta stay high

10: Technicolor Lover

She came from a world that is so far out Roller skating into my life I never had no doubt She said where to get that velvet colored hair I said I got lot's more somewhere If you touch my big . . . And she said I come from a world that is so far out And I said so do I And she may not be the world's solution But she's a world class revolution Technicolor lover Take my heart Technicolor lover Take my heart Technicolor lover Take my heart now

11: Flowers

It' nine to seven Why aren't things wild? You said you was a flower child I can respect your soul searching But now's no time for questioning I'm sure you've been misled before And once you'd trust they'd slam the door But I'm everything I claim to be You just need vodka and honesty? Do you know who I am Do you know who I am My love is real As real as the flowers you smoke to get high My love is real As real as our god who has spoken on how we can fly My love is real As real as flowers You're 22 why aren't you free? You're mom and daddy's victory A soul that's lived a thousand lives Don't hide behind a child's eyes I'm sure you've been misled before And once you'd trust they'd slam the door But I'm everything I claimed to be You just need vodka and honesty? Do you know who I am Do you know who I am My love is real As real as the flowers you smoke to get high My love is real As real as our god who has spoken on how we can fly My love is real As real as flowers I love you you hate me I took math class that ain't a fair exchange I call you you hang up Don't have to be a bitch and get your number changed I'm sorry forgive me I never meant to call you those names But I'm lonely so lonely please

12: Crying Like a Church on Sunday

I was dancing With your shadow Slow down memories hall I said wait Have I been seduced and forgotten You said baby haven't we all Now I don't like crying Because it only gets me wet But I can't help failing To remember to forget you And I know it's gonna be a long time Now I'm crying like a church on Monday Praying for these feelings to go away So do me a favor baby Put down your new god And love me like Sunday again I was hiding in your bedroom When I saw him come inside I can't live in his shadow Is that where I'm dancing til I die Now I don't light candles Because they make me see the light That I can't help failing To remember to forget you And I know it's gonna be a long time And I'm crying like a church on Monday Praying for these feelings to go away So do me a favor baby Put down your new god And love me like Sunday again
