The Radio Still Sucks
I'm really fucking sick
Of beck and 311,
And marylin manson,
I wish someone would break his fucking neck.

And what about bush
And lame-ass oasis?
Hey, talk about pretentious,
Why don't they just blow england off the map?

Every now and then
I turn it on again
But it's plain to see that
The radio still sucks.

Every now and then
I turn it on again
But it's plain to see that
The radio still sucks.back to top
Song for a Mix Tape
Today I made you a mix tape
And I decorated it with lots of stars.
It had all my favorite songs.
There was jawbreaker and armchair martain
Built to spill and the descendents.
Hell I even put one of ours on it.

Falling for you was the easy thing to do.
If only somehow I could make you hang around.

Today I made you a mix tape
To say exactly how I feel inside
And make you feel it to.
These are the songs that make me smile
And cry myself to sleep at night
When I'm lying without you.

I love you more than I ever loved anyone before.
Hey silly girl I'm begging you.

All of these songs they remind me of you
I hope that you like this song.

Did you ever listen to the words and melody
Do you fell the pain inside
They way that it hurts me?
When your in your room at night
I hope you'll be singing along.
And make me a tape of your favorite songs.back to top
P.S. The Scene Is Dead
Do you know what its like
To live somewhere that sucks?
And everyone tries to bring you down.
No place for you to go
And see a punk rock show.
And spend your whole life trying to get out.back to top
Blue Skies, Broken Hearts... Next 12 Exits
Here I am sitting on the beach again
Watching as the tide comes rolling in.
I miss the times when I looked into your eyes
A sacrifice I made for paradise.
The objects in your mirror
are closer than they actually appear.back to top
Let It Burn
Knowledge is key.
You can never know too much.
Open your books aim to the stars
Well I won't let them
Keep me from learning all I can.
Public schools just stand up.
The system feeds our minds.

Did the system tell you about democracy?
The same system that supported slavery?
And doesn't it seem strange that
When we try to make a change
To lock us up and throw away the key.

I won't let you
Play me for a fool
Set me free to go to church
But I cant pray in school.
Make a decision for yourself
Don't bother with any trends
Open up a book
And share the knowledge with your friends.

Did the system tell you about democracy?
The same system that created slavery?
And doesn't it seem strange that
When we try to make a change
To lock us up and throw away the key.back to top
How I Spent My Summer Vacation
Got out of bed today
I'm alive, what can I say?
I'm really happy to be
Somewhere with someone who makes me happy.

I took the bus downtown.
All day long I walked around
I looked at all the sights
And thought about how lucky I am now.

I was sick of feeling down.
So I gave it all away.
2000 miles from all I know
And so much better off today.
I'm still waiting for the world.
To come crashing down again.
And I'm still waiting for someone
To call me up and tell me your dead.
Sometimes I wonder what was
Going through your head
I don't know but I won't go there again.

You make me smile so wide
When I look into your eyes.
When your not around
You know your somewhere stuck inside my mind.

So here I am today
I was lost for 20 years
I found clarity
The day I took a chance
And moved away.back to top
On With the Show
Frankie died just the other night.
Some say it was suicide,
But we know
How the story goes.
With his six string knife
And his street wise pride
The boy was a man before his time,
And she knew
All their dreams would come true.
But ya see, Frankie was fast,
Too fast to know.
He wouldn't go slow
Until his lethal dose.
And she knows
He'll finally come too close.
[Chorus]
Well, on with the show.
Going on with the show.
Come on baby
No, no, no.
Oh my, my, my . . .
[repeat]
He was bad.
He was never good.
But one thing that he understood.
And she knew
All those lies would come true.
The time has come and
He's paid his dues.
Suzy finally got the news.
She always knew
This day would come soon.
[Chorus]
[Chorus]
He was stopped on a dime
With a switchblade knife.
Some damn punk went and
Took Frankie's life.
And she knew
She'd have to pull through.
Broken down, with his broken dreams,
With a wink of an eye
Said "Suzy, listen to me
You must go
On with the show."
[Chorus]
[Chorus]
Oh baby!back to top
San Dimas High School Football Rules (Acoustic)
Last night I had a dream that we went to Disneyland,
Went on all the rides, didn't have to wait in line.
I drove you to your house where we stared up at the stars
I listened to your heartbeat as I held you in my arms.

We hung out at the rainbow where we drank til' half past two.
Nothing could go wrong anytime that I'm with you.
Like crashing a hotel room or leading up to that first kiss
Or searching for a high school that you know doesn't exist...

These are the things that make me free
I feel like I'm stuck in "stand by me"
This night was too good to be true.

Today I woke up alone wishing you were here with me,
I wanted us to be something that we'd probably never be.
Today you called me up and said you'd see me at our show,
But now I'm stuck debating if I even wanna go.

DENISE, don't you understand that what I say is true?
I just want you to know I have a major crush on you.
I'd drive you to Las Vegas and do the things you wanna do
I'd even have Wayne Newton dedicate a song to you.

I only wish that this could be
Just dump your boyfriend and go out with me
I swear I'd treat you like a queen.back to top
Run
I can wait for hours
I can watch you from behind
you can go but I will be waiting until you will come around
no one else to trust and there is nothing we can't do
you might say that it's a trap
but we can hold hands and break through
break through the dreams we ever had
nothing can divide us
everything can change
except from what we want
except from how we are bond
sometimes I can close my eyes and I feel I lost something inside
all the memories from our past
keep on hitting strike by strike and even in the darkest tunnel I will always see a light
if there is somehow you can see it then come hold my hand
and run run through the dreams we ever had
nothing can divide us
everything can change
except from what we want
except from how we want
except from what we want
except from how we are bond.back to top
Time to Move On
It's time to open up your eyes
I think it's really time to understand it can't
you see you are the only one who is playing
I don't really think that you want to use a sharp knife to cut off your standards
but I feel you know it's time to do it
so take, take the blame
don't try to run away
a different game you have got to try it anyway
you have got nothing to lose
don't be so confused
and still you want to give up
cause you can't take it anymore
feel safer on higher ground
what's been lost can't be found again.
You think you fall straight to where you belong,
it's an illusion but you are to dumb to know it
maybe someday you will learn your lesson
maybe some day you will wake up find you are wrong,
hold your breath and do it!back to top
Have a Nice Life
Phone calls , excitement in the air.
Fluency has grown,
all we have shared is in a stream heading somewhere,
taking turns, back to nowhere.
Although there are a thousand more,
you are the one I have been looking for.
I have no clue if this is your game if so count me out and leave me in pain.
Already prepared for a final thought.
After only a few hours I got caught in your net,
why did you let me fall?
It left me in a crumbling room staring at the walls.back to top
Something
[Originally by The Beatles]

Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover,
Something in the way she woos me.
I don抰 want to leave her now,
You know I believe and how.
Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don抰 need no other lover.
Something in her style that shows me.
I don抰 want to leave her now,
You know I believe and how.
You抮e asking me will my love grow,
I don抰 know, I don抰 know.
You stick around now it may show,
I don抰 know, I don抰 know.
Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her,
Something in the things she shows me.
I don抰 want to leave her now,
You know I believe and how.back to top
