The Art of Losing
Whoa..
Last call now I'm out of time
And I don't got no valentine
Singled out now stand alone
The underdog at a modern world
Suburbia's hot tonight
Nothing seems to feel alright

I don't want your sympathy
I just need a little therapy
At least that's what they say to me
Hey ho, let's go
I'm gonna start a riot
You don't wanna fight it
1,2 fuck you
Don't tell me what to do
I don't wanna be like you
Can't you see it's killing me
I'm my own worst enemy
knock me down, I'll keep on moving
It's the art of losing
Whoa..

Said Come over, do what you're told
Get a job and start growing old
9-5 can make your dreams come true
But I don't wanna be like you
I'm not cool and I'll never be
I break the rules and I guarantee

I don't want your sympathy
I just need a little therapy
At least that's what they say to me
Hey ho, let's go
I'm gonna start a riot
You don't wanna fight it
1,2 fuck you
Don't tell me what to do
I don't wanna be like you
Can't you see it's killing me
I'm my own worst enemy
knock me down, I'll keep on moving
It's the art of losing
You call me a loser
You say I'm just a user
But I'll just keep a movin'
Cause that's the art of losing
Whoa...

...2,3,4!

Hey ho, let's go
I'm gonna start a riot
You don't wanna fight it
1,2 fuck you
Don't tell me what to do
I don't wanna be like you
Can't you see it's killing me
I'm my own worst enemy
knock me down, I'll keep on moving
It's the art of losing
Whoa..
It's the art of losing
Whoa
It's the art of losing
We're the kids,we're the kids, we're the kids in America
We're the kids,we're the kids, we're the kids in Americaback to top
The Breakup Song
American Hi-Fi - Breakup Song




I canít believe I hung around with you
All this time
You drove me crazy with your O.C.D.
Girl, youíre out of your mind
Iím counting on UFOís to beam me up
I just donít know how long I can take this shit
Iím over it, girl you gotta go

[Chorus]
Itís over, were over
Just like in crimson and clover
Weíre sinking and Iím thinking
How the hell did we get so stupid?
Itís the end, ex-girlfriend
I donít care what you think of me now
So long youíre gone
This is the breakup song

One more thing before you go
Would you please give me my records back
My Bloody Valentine, The Pixies,
Cheap Trick, and Back in Black
You can keep the dog we bought
But you canít go near the Standard Bar
Donít hang around, donít call my friends
The wonít know who you are!

[Chorus X2]

THIS IS THE BREAKUP SONG!back to top
Beautiful Disaster
Iíll make you a 5 star enemy
Iíve taken a fall would you like to see
Choke it down what a sound run away from me
Keep on laughing girl do you see me

Break it down now
What chu want anyway
Right about now
What chu want anyway
Iíll fuck it up again
What chu want anyway
We keep falling in love
What a beautiful disaster

Connect my skull to the socket burn baby burning like a rocket
Cant sell no tell would you buy it
Thick skin now donít you wanna try it

Break it down now
What chu want anyway
Right about now
What chu want anyway
Iíll fuck it up again
What chu want anyway
We keep falling in love
What a beautiful disaster

What a beautiful disaster [x3]

Connect my skull to the socket burn baby burning like a rocket
Choke it down what a sound run away from me
Keep on laughing girl do you see me

Break it down now [x2]

Break it down now
What chu want anyway
Right about now
What chu want anyway
Iíll fuck it up again
What chu want anyway
We keep falling in love

Save Me
I've been so low
Yeah I've been so strung out
Can you picture this?
I'll take something, it's better than nothing, anything
That you've got to give

CHORUS:
I can't let go
I don't want you to know
I've been down so low
Can you save me?
I'll fight my way
Just to hear you say
If I go up in flames
Could you save me?

The more you whisper
The words keep stinging in my ear
We're never gunna be the same
Sunshine fading
And black sheets raining down on me
They cover up everything

CHORUS:

I've been so selfish
I get so high
Don't wanna come down

I've been so low
Yeah I've been so strung out
Can you picture this?

Nothing Left to Lose
American Hi-fi - Nothing Left To Loose




Nothing left to lose
Except you and your baby blues

Pull in down boards like rodman
All the lipstick chicks sing

And I rock it like Jackson Browne

Teenage Alien Nation
I want it all
No matter what thought you heard me say
No matter what you know you canít escape today
ÖÖÖ
So what if you donít like me
I donít give a fuck if you donít like me
I can change my lock
It seems that Iím rotten to the core

Forget about tomorrow
You and me weíre going down in sorrow
Youth of the nation going nowhere
Station to station
Teenage alien nation (woah)
Teenage alien nation (yeah)

Itís all wrong
I guess that some of us have come and gone
I guess we kinda shudda known it all along
Never going anywhere
Sometimes you gotta pick it up and roll the dice
Your looking back and you donít think twice
Bout feeling lonely everyday

Forget about tomorrow
You and me weíre going down in sorrow
Youth of the nation going nowhere
Station to station [x3]
Teenage alien nation [x4]back to top
Rise
I donít know what I can take
Can you feel the pressure break
Iíve been getting by on nothing
How long so long
Feeling like I lost my vision
Transmission full of dead ambition
Kinda sorta gotta get it together
I canít wait forever

Rise out of the atmosphere
I gotta disappear
I gotta get out of here
You got the best of me
Rise up and outta here
Into the stratosphere
I gotta get out of here
You got the best of me

I could never be that clever
Even though itís now or never
Counting down the seconds till it blows
4 3 2 1
Disappear without a trace
Could I be in outer space
Staring at the sun till I get how high so high

Rise out of the atmosphere
I gotta disappear
I gotta get out of here
You got the best of me
Rise up and outta here
Into the stratosphere
I gotta get out of here
You got the best of me

Did I break down
Can we slow down
I wanna get out
I donít wanna be so bored

Rise out of the atmosphere
I gotta disappear
I gotta get out of here
You got the best of me
Rise up and outta here
Into the stratosphere
I gotta get out of here
You got the best of me

You got the best of me [x8]back to top
This Is the Sound
Empty hearts can fill an empty room
Because of you
The sky above remains clear and blue
Itís nothing new
The radio keeps playing static or your favourite songs
And why does everyone keep on bringing me back to you

And this is the sound of the broken down
And this is the last train homeÖÖ.the underground
And this is the fall donít catch me if I fall
Just catch me when I fall back to the ground

Lightening crashes all around me now
I hear its sound
Broken down wings can carry us to where the people stare
Fall asleep against the windowpane
Outside the rain covers everyone
Now weíre never gonna see the sun

And this is the sound of the broken down
And this is the last train homeÖÖ.the underground
And this is the fall donít catch me if I fall
Just catch me when I fall
Donít catch me if I fall back to the ground

And if you wanted to stay Iíll have you any day
And if you wanted to stay Iíll have you any way

And this is the sound of the broken down
And this is the last train homeÖÖ.the underground
And this is the fall donít catch me if I fall
Just catch me when I fall back to the ground

And this is the sound [x2]

And this is the fall donít catch me if I fall
Just catch me when I fall
Donít catch me if I fall back to the groundback to top
The Gold Rush
She caught the gold rush
I could never get enough
Sheís been in magazines
What a little beauty queen
Sheíll stay a stick around a while
With such a winning smile
She could be in black and white
Iím colour blind Iíll make it right

Her head keeps spinning round
Iím in over my head
Thereís an art to falling down

Hey hey I got a message for ya
Youíre gonna blow it girl
Stuck in your little world
Fight fight till we get it right
I got you right where I want you

She caught the goldrush
I must of lost my touch
Sheís on the movie screen
Acting like a rocket queen

Sheíll so the long mile
With such a winning smile
Break it down forever
I donít want her anyhow

Her head keeps spinning round
Iím in over my head
Thereís an art to falling down

Hey hey I got a message for ya
Youíre gonna blow it girl
Stuck in your little world
Fight fight till we get it right
I got you right where I want you

Golden girl
Sheís just a golden girl

Built for Speed
Sheís on fire like a rocket spinning out of control
Try to stop her but you just donítknow
How to keep it inside
Can you keep on turning out
Iíll wait for my turn
Same old story coz you never learn
Gotta make it in time

She donít know what she does to me
The girl got soul and rhythm in between
I crash and burn like every other time
Sheís my little rock n roll queen
I got a girl like that
My babyís built for speed

Shoot to kill built to spill
Got a mind take your pills
But your never gonna get to what thrills
All of us inside
Can you put the pedal to the metal this time
You gotta want it like I want it alright
We gotta start tonight

She donít know what she does to me
The girl got soul and rhythm in between
I crash and burn like every other time
Sheís my little rock n roll queen
I got a girl like that
My babyís built for speed

Sheís on fire like a rocket spinning out of control
Try to stop her but you just donítknow
How to keep it inside

She donít know what she does to me
The girl got soul and rhythm in between

Happy
I see you in a daydream
Turn it on now make a big scene
You kiss you kiss when you want something
Fake a smile now
You got it all

And that oughta get you nowhere
What you say to me
I know how to stay outta focus

Keep your head down till the bitter end
Make believe that you my best friend
You trade passion for fashion
Nothings cool like when we were cool

And that oughta get you nowhere
What you say to me
I know how to stay outta focus

You fall through to cracks of the city street
You canít see straight
You canít see straight

I see you in a daydream
Turn it on now make a big scene
It makes you happy
It makes you happy
It makes you happy
It makes you happy

And that oughta get you nowhere
What you say to me
I know how to stay outta focus

And that oughta get you nowhere
What you say to me
You fall through to cracks of the city street
You canít see straight
You canít see straight
You canít see straightback to top
