How to Win Friends and Influence People
It's a beautiful day

If you look up in the air
You can see the sky

It's a beautiful day

If you stare at the sun
You will burn your eyes

I do not believe in the lucky numbers
I do not believe in wishing on a star...
To tell you the truth
People love to tell you things that will break
Your heart

Yes people love to break your heart

People love to break your heart

I do not believe in the things that I cannot see
I do not believe in the pretty disguise...
To tell you the truth
I know they want me to believe that they
Know what's best for me
Yes, you know that it's true
People love to hit you when you close your eyes
People love to hurt you when you close your eyes

And you will never see it coming

It's a beautiful day

It's a beautiful day
Look up...the sky is down

It's such a beautiful day

Look up...the sky is down

It's a beautiful day
Look up...the sky is coming down

Its a beautiful day
Look up...the sky is coming down

Its a beautiful day
Look up in the air

You will never see it comingback to top
Blackjack
Scary john gets his strong arm on
He can break me and make me
Happy with his blackjack

Scary john has the heavy hand on
He smiles without his eyes
Nice and easy with his blackjack

Don't tell me that
You didn't see this coming down

Please don't say that this
Isn't what you wanted now

Scary john gets his strong arm on
He can break me and make me
Happy with his blackjack

Scary john
Always knows what's goin on
He is everywhere
Happy with his blackjack

Please don't tell me that
You didn't see this coming down
Please don't say that this
Isn't what you wanted now

This is your american dream
Everything is simple in the
White and the black
You will never need to see the grey anymore
You will never have to be afraid
When you are happy with the blackjack

I hope you are happy with the blackjack

Scary john
He wants to kill my song
He doesn't like the fact
I'm not happy with the blackjack

I don't want to hear the words
He has to say

Please don't tell me that
You didn't see this coming

Please don't tell me
That this isn't what you asked for

Be careful what you ask for

This is your american dream
Everthing is simple in the
White and the black
You will never need to see the grey anymore
You will never have to be afraid
When you are happy with the blackjack

I hope you are happy with the blackjack

This is your american dreamback to top
I Want to Die a Beautiful Death
Everybody here in the small town
Looks used and abused today
Everybody here is looking outside
Man, seems like nothing ever changes
Everybody they just want to have a good time
Everybody they just want to forget
Everybody wants to feel like they did when the sky looked good
And the world was perfect

I don't care
I just want to die pretty
I just want to get lost in the motion
I just want to get lost in my beautiful self
I just want to get lost in the city
I don't want to live forever
I want to die a beautiful death

Yeah, I got to get the hell out of this town
Everybody's looking upside down
Everybody is looking for the same thing
Really seems like nothing ever changes
Everybody they just want to buy a slow ride
Everybody they just want to get buy
Everybody wants to feel like they did when the sky looked high
And the world was simple

I don't care
I just want to die pretty
I just want to get lost in the motion
I just want to get lost in my beautiful self
I just want to get lost in the city
I don't want to live forever
I want to die a beautiful death
I want to die a beautiful death
I just want to die a beautiful death
I just want to die a beautiful death
I just want to die pretty

(oh, oh)
I just want to die pretty
Just want to die pretty
Sometimes I just want to die

I just want to get lost in the moment
I just want to get lost in the city tonight
I just want to get lost inside myself
I don't care about nothing
I just want to get lost in the motion
I just want to get lost in my beautiful self
I just want to get lost in the city
I don't want to live forever
I want to die a beautiful death
I want to die a beautiful death
Yes, I want to die a beautiful death
I just want to die a beautiful death
I just want to die prettyback to top
Volvo Driving Soccer Mom
Na-na na-na na-na na-na na-na na-na

You know I used to be a bad girl
I got busy in the bathroom at my high school prom
Yeah I used to be a dancer at the local strip club
But now I know my right wing from my wrong

Yeah, yeah

I really used to be a bad girl
I had a threesome with my sister and her boyfriend tom
I know I used to be a real wild child
But now I am a volvo-driving soccer mom

Na-na na-na na-na na-na na-na na-na

I really used to be a bad girl
I got busted for possession of my wizard-shaped bong
I used to love to do the things they tell me not to do
But now I'm different--now I sing a new song

I really used to be a bad girl
I got gang-banged in the bathroom at my high school prom
Yes, I used to be a real wild child
But now I am a volvo-driving soccer mom

Na-na na-na na-na na-na na-na na-na

Where do all the porn stars go
When the lights go down?
I wonder where all the porn stars go
'cause when you need one, they are never around

I think they moved out to the suburbs
And now they're blonde, bland, middle-class republican wives
They all have blonde, bland, middle-class republican children
Blonde, bland, middle-class republican lives

Where do all the porn stars go
When the lights go down?
I think I know where all the porn stars go
They all become volvo-driving soccer moms

Science Fiction
(it's just like science fiction
Who knows what the fuck they're talking about
There's always one in every crowd)

There is always one in every crowd
You can hear the voices when you're alone
They sound like middle-long, middle obxious and loud
Don't let go, don't listen to the sound of those people you know
Slowly falling apart
And falling down now
Everything is falling down now

When I think I'm alone
I watch the news on my girlfriend's tv
It's like a bad b movie
All sometimes I can't comprend all the stupid things that I see
So don't let go,
Can't believe your eyes
Whatever they may show you
Just makes you want to cry and you don't want to know
That you need to remember that life is always getting better
So don't let go

There is always one in every crowd
You see them when you think you're alone
It all just seems like science fiction
Nobody knows what they're talking about
So don't let go, don't listen to the sounds of all those people you know
Slowly falling apart
And falling down now
You need to remember
Life is always getting better
Life is always getting better
Life is always getting better

New Blue Champion
I don't want to hear you say you're sorry
I don't want to hear you say we can start all over again
I think you must think that I am stupid
Well I might be stupid for the rest of my life
But I'll never be stupid to you again
I just want it all to go away
Yeah, just go away
Yeah

I can see the light above me
I hear the sound of a brand new song
I don't want to hear your preaches
Cause I know what's right, I know what's wrong
I can see the light above me
I hear the sound of a brand new day
I'm not going to settle for less
I don't think things are going to change
I just want it all to go away

I don't want to hear about your damage
I don't want to hear you say that you think I'm damaged too
Because I know you know that the damage in me
Is from the horrible things you say and do
I know that the damage in me comes from the damage in you
I just want it all to go away

I can see the light above me
I hear the sound of a brand new song
I don't want to hear your preaches
Cause I know what's right, I know what's wrong
I can see the light above me
I hear the sound of a brand new day
I'm not going to settle for less
I don't think things are ever gonna to change
I just want it all to go away
Yeah, just go away
Yeah, I don't want to talk about it
I don't want to hear your lies
I don't want to talk about it
And I don't understand why you do not realize

I don't want to hear you say you're sorry
No, I don't want to hear you say we can start all over again
Whoa, I can see the light above me
I hear the sound of a brand new song
And I don't want to know your reasons
Cause I know what's right, I know what's wrong
I can see the light above me
I hear the sound of a brand new day
I can picture the lives without you
And I don't think things are ever gonna change
I just want it all to go away
I can see the light above me
The sound of a brand new song
I don't want to know your reasons
Cause I know what's right, I know what's wrongback to top
TV Show
I walk around in the market, late at night
I walk around in the empty aisles
And I don't know why
I need to be, close to the light
So I walk around in the middle of the night
I drive around in the neighbourhood
I want to lose my house
I drive around on the freeway,
I guess I want to lose myself
Turn the key, turn the dial
Listen to the radio and just drive for a while
Yeah, I got no place to go
I wish I could come home
To a life that looks like a tv show
Wish I could see my television family waiting for me
Where no one fights, no one screams
No one lies, and no one leaves
I don't care how the story ends
I want to feel like I'm living again

I drive away from the city
Need to see the sky
Drive away from the bad things
That made me close my eyes
Leave it all, in the past
Drive away going nowhere fast
Yeah, I got no where to go
I wish I could go home
To a life that looks like a tv show
Wish I could see my television family waiting for me
Where no one fights, no one screams
No one lies, and no one leaves
I don't care how the story ends
I want to feel like I use to feel
I want to feel like I'm living again
Whoa, I'm living again
Whoa, I'm living again
Whoa, breathing out and breathing in
Whoa, I'm living again

Walking away from the circle
Need to find myself
I think I need to start over
Need to start making sense
Breathe out, breathe in
I wish I could start all over again
I wish I could do it all over again
I wish I could come home
To a life like the one that I use to know
I wish I could some day see everything back the way it use to be
Where no one cries, no one screams
No one hits you, and no one leaves
Everybody knows how the story ends
All the bad guys lose and the good guys win
I wish I could do it all over again
Ooh, I want to feel some day I can really start living again
Whoa, I'm living again
Whoa, I'm living again
Whoa, I'm living again
Whoa, I'm living againback to top
Chrysanthemum
Yes I hate the way I feel and it makes no sense
Five months gone and all I got
Pretty pink flowers on my chain link fence
I don't like what it means
Cause I know there's more to come
I can't go home without
Chrysanthemum

I walk around lost and I don't know why
I don't see the faces or the places I should recognize
It's like that dream where it feels like home but it don't look right
Yes I will look everywhere tonight
I will not stop till I make things right
And I can't go home till I see the sun
I can't go home without
Chrysanthemum
No I can't go home without

A Beautiful Life
You seem to make the same mistakes everyday
Sometimes it's hard to open your eyes
You want to be the only cake on the table
Yeah, you say you don't like surprises
You want to find a pretty little place to stay
You just don't want to live and leave

I just want to be where the sun shines down
I just want to be where the sun shines down
I just want to be with you

Oh,
I really hate how you push me away
I do not like it when you shut me out
I say I love you but I really don't know you
I want to change you but I don't know how
I want to leave when it gets ugly and cold
I want to leave but I have no where to go

I just want to be where the sun shines down
Yeah, I just want to be where the sun shines down
On a beautiful life
I just want to find a beautiful life
I want to be where the sun shines down
I just want to find a beautiful life
I don't care where we go
I don't care where we go

You seem to make the same mistakes all the time
Sometimes it's not too hard to understand why
You say you hate the things you have done
Yeah, you have been running with your back to the sun
You want to find a place where you don't have to hide
You say you're just happy to be alive

I just want to be where the sun shines down
Yeah, I just want to be where the sun shines down
Yeah, yeah
I just want to be where the sun shines down
On a beautiful life
I just want to find a beautiful life
I just want to be where the sun shines down
I just want to find a beautiful life
I want to be where the sun shines down
I want to be where the sun shines down

I don't care where we go
I don't care what we do
As long as I can be with you
I just want to be with youback to top
The New York Times
Oh,
It makes no sense to me
Yeah, I was living in a different world when I heard the news
I keep having the same bad dream
And it makes me want to hurt all the people who have done this thing to you

When I see your face, I can see you smile
Read all about you in the new york times
When I see your eyes, I can see your light
When I think about what happened
It makes me crazy

It makes no sense to me,
This eye for an eye thing,
It has gone too far
I don't know anyone who doesn't hurt inside
I would like to believe we could learn from this
And maybe some day we can make things right
I want to believe in this world
I want to believe in this life
I want to believe in a world that does not seem real
When you read between the lines

When I see your face, I can see you smile
Read all about you in my new york times
When I see your eyes, I can see your light
When I read about the world
It makes me crazy
I want to believe in this world
I want to believe in this life
I want to believe in a world that does not seem real
When you read between the lines
Gotta read between the lines
Whoa, gotta read between the lines
I really want to believe I can make things right
I want to believe I can learn to feel alright inside
I want to believe I can learn to make things right
Oh, I want to believe in this world
I want to believe in this life
I want to believe in a world that does not seem real
When I read the new york times

I see your face, I see your smile
Read all about you in the new york times
I can see your eyes, I can see your light
When I think about what happened
It just makes me crazy
When I close my eyes
You seem so alive
I really think about you
I want to believe we can make things right
I want to believe
I want to believe
I want to believe
I want to believe
Oh, I want to believe in this world
I want to believe in this life
I want to believe in a world that does not seem real
When I read the new york timesback to top
