Nowhere Slow
It seems the harder that I try
The further I fall behind, I'm falling behind.
So many things I just don't know.
All these decisions
Too little time to decide them
I wonder why I even try

[Chorus:]

Seems it happened once again
Do my best but in the end
What have I done, well, nothing
In a world that moves so fast
Yeah, I'll be sure to finish last
Left with nothing to show I'm going nowhere slow

Facing daily frustrations
Not meeting expectations
Expectations
So many things I just don't know
All these decisions
Too little time to decide them
I wonder why I even try

[Chorus]

I figured out That Life's not about A human race
(It's about) decisions made
And lessons learned at, at my own pace

[Chorus]back to top
All That You Have
What if everything you had,
You had to give back?
Would you be the same?
I don't think you would
There's so many things that you don't appreciate
No!

[Chorus:]
All that you have
And have you ever really thought
About all that you've got
More than what you own
Your family and your friends
Without which you would be left here all alone
So when you're feeling down
Just take a look around
And look at all you have
And you'll see that things are really not that bad

[Chorus:]
All that you have
All that you have
Things aren't that bad
With all that you haveback to top
She's Anti
Sitting in her class
Sophisticated, anti-social brat
She never speaks a word
That's why she's sitting in the back
No one knows her name
I never knew that she existed

Then one tragic day She came to school and went ballistic
With an ak in her right hand
She shot the cheerleading squad and ran
They're all dead, They're all dead

She's alone in her class
There's no one left for her to blast
She's always kicking ass
Masochistic, Gothic, dressed in black
No knows her name
I never knew she was sadistic

On April 28th She came to school and went ballistic
With a rifle in her left hand
She blew away the football team and ran
They're all dead, They're all dead

[Chorus 2:]
She's a bitch, she hates everyone
She's one of those Anti-girls
Pessimistic and cynical
She's a victim of this lonely world, yeah

I know she hates me
She's a little insane
And she's crazy
She's kookie, ookie, dookie
They're all dead, They're all dead,

[Chorus x2]back to top
Surfer Girl
I was at the beach, sitting on the sand
When I saw this girl
Dark brown eyes, and a dark olive tan
She was watching the sets
With a surfboard underneath her arm
The first moment I saw her I knew she'd do me some harm

She's so good
She came out of the water
From the best session I'd seen
Man, she had the biggest chi chis I had ever seen
She put down her board, and sat down next to me
And played a soft ole lonely tune, on her ukulele
I don't know what had happened But I'd fallen asleep
The next morning I woke up
She was sleeping next to me

[Chorus:]
I fell in love with her
I'm so in love with her
I fell in love with her
My little Surfer Girl

She got out of bed
Waxed up both our boards
Grabbed me by the hand and then she took me out the door
We surfed all that day long
At least eight hours straight
Man! I knew she was the one
And damn I couldn't wait
Well I asked if she loved me
She said, "Yeah well I guess"
So I asked her to marry me
Dammit, you know she said "yes"

[Chorus]

I was at the alter
In my tuxedo-o-o
Waiting for my Surfer Girl
Man, where did she go
Later on that day
A friend to me did tell-ell-ell
That she went to Mexico
To catch a, to Catch a, to catch a 10 foot swell
That Bitch

[Chorus]

My Surfer Girlback to top
Last Nite Regrets
A night of no rest,
I was laying on her breast
A morning of regret,
I realized I slept with my friend
A silent good-bye, she gave me no reply
I asked for a kiss
She answered with her fist

I fucked up again
I lost another friend
I am a user, I didn't mean to lose her
I couldn't keep my pants on, and she's hating me
Unable to think, had one too many drinks
When we were in bed, I was using my other head
Hating myself, I gave her no respect
I'm feeling like a pig, regretting what I did
I saw her again She used to be my friend
No conversation, I had no explanation
She looked me in the eyes and she said to me...

[Chorus:]
She said "It's over"
She said "It's over"
She said "It's over"
Don't talk to me
And I said "I'm sorry" "I'm sorry"

[Chorus x3]

Last night regretsback to top
Suffer
I saw my old friend the other day
It'd been 3 years since I went my separate way
I left him when he needed me the most
And up until this day I claimed innocence

[Chorus x2]
And you suffered
I didn't mean to let you suffer
I didn't mean to let you suffer
I didn't mean to let you down

Nothing left for me at all
For selfish reasons
I let a good friend fall
For circumstances that were beyond his control
I no longer claim my innocence

I didn't mean to let you down
I didn't mean to let you down
I didn't mean to let you down
I didn't mean to let you down

[Chorus]back to top
Your Past
26 hours, 2000 miles away
A broken trust severed us
An ocean of secrets that you left behind
Unlocked by false assumptions
I'm stupid and dumb in the brain
And I shouldn't have, shouldn't have, shouldn't have
Shouldn't have Pushed you away

[Chorus x2:]
Now that you're gone,
I know what I've lost
And I can't get you out of my mind
I wish I could turn back time
I'm biting my tongue with my foot in mouth
I'm kicking myself, kicking myself in the ass

I know I shouldn't judge you by your past
Jealousy hit me I screamed and shouted at you
When I heard that you've been with my friends
It's none of my business, what you have been through
I was scared I would get hurt again
I'm stupid, I made a mistake
And I shouldn't have, shouldn't have, shouldn't have
Shouldn't have Pushed you away
Your pastback to top
Grow Up
Yeah you tell me that it's time to grow up
Blah, blah, blah, shut up
You're just afraid that I'll be better than you
I'm just a kid and I'm having fun
Doin all things you never got to do
You never got to do, oh yeah

So you think you can change me
Control me, restrain me?
Well I've no, no self-control, no limits, no boundaries
Content watching the world crumble around me

[Chorus:]
I keep telling myself
That I don't need anybody else
I'm doin fine on my own
But then again, maybe I'm missing something
At least that's what they're telling me

Yeah right!
Don't try to tell me what you think's right
I don't need your insight on life
I've made my own way
So I will not change!...No!
Not for anyone, for anyone, for anyone, oh yeah!
For anyone

Yeah you tell me that it's time to grow up
Blah, Blah, Blah, Shut up
You're telling me what you're parents told you
I'm just a kid and I'm having fun
Doin all things you never got to
I keep telling myself
That I don't need anybody else
I'm doin fine, on my own
But then again, maybe I'm missing something
At least that's what they're telling me
But I'm not going to change Not for anyone...back to top
Piss Off
Abuse me with all of your words
But tell me something I haven't heard
You think that you're better than me
I won't listen to anything that you say

[Prechorus:]
Don't tell me what you think is right
I didn't ask for your advice

[Chorus:]
Why don't you shut up And get away from me
I can do anything I please
I've heard you say it a thousand times before
It's something I ignore The things you say to me

Degrade me by calling me names
According to you I am nothing
I know that you're not better than me
So piss off and get out of my face

[Prechorus]

[Chorus]

Me, Meback to top
Let Go
Why be concerned
With things that you don't have control over?
What good is it to worry when
You never know what's really going to happen?

[Chorus:]
Tomorrow's just another day away, you'll find your way
You'll be okay You just have to learn to let go

When things get you down
Should you look back? No!
Turn your head around
And take things one day at a time
But plan ahead for mountains you have yet to climb

[Chorus]

[Chorus]back to top
Bad News Blair
You've been rejected, deceived and neglected by another girl
Now you're locked in your room
Inhaling toxic fumes,
Because you're thinking about her
It's been a month and a half
And you're still feeling sad
When you saw her at a dance
She was kissing and hugging, playing and loving
With her new boyfriend

[Chorus 1:]
I know she broke your heart
And it's hard to be hard
And pretend that you don't care
Well that's what you get When you date that girl named Blair

Now she's calling your house
Cuz she wants to hang out
And do that thing you do
You're getting overexcited and you cannot fight
The fact that she's bad news

[Chorus 2:]
Says she wants you back
But back as a friend
And I know you're giving in
To a girl that's going to
Break your heart again
Just give it some thought It never worked out
Think about the shit she put you through
You should give up, she's leading you on
I know she's not the one for you
She's been around the block
She's been with all the jocks
Including all your friends
It's not the end of the world, she's just another girl
That I don't recommend

[Chorus 2]back to top
Kids
Hey, think back when you were just a little kid, yeah
When everything you did , you always had so much fun
Lincoln logs and Tinker Toys
At school the girls would chase the boys
For some dumb reason
I always ran

Kids just havin fun
Nothing on our minds
Never on the run
Always havin a good time
A good time

Hey think back when, you first started kindergarten
When everyone in your class was your best friend
Dig a ton of tunnels in the sand
Painting pictures for our moms and dads
Knowing that they would be so proud
That "kid" resides in all of us, let it resound

Kids just havin fun
Nothing on our minds
Never on the run
Always havin a good time
A good time

[Chorus:]
A good time
Always havin a good time
Never wanting to grow old
Never wanting to grow old

Kids just havin fun
Nothing on our minds
Never on the run
Always havin a good time
A good time

[Chorus x2]back to top
Wow, She Dumb
I'm sick of playing all your stupid little games
You're 17 and blonde and screwed up in the brain
Conceited, immature, confused, and naive
You're pretty pretty dumb, and caught up in the scene

And I wasted all my time
Waiting up for you
To make up your mind

[Chorus x2:]
I am sick of stupid girls
I am sick of stupid girls
I am sick of stupid girls

Stop acting like you're sad, I hate to hear you cry
You're like an episode of "Days of our Lives'
If you don't get your way, you'll whine and complain
Superficialistic, please go away!

And I wasted all my time
Waiting up for you
To make up your mind

[Chorus x2]

You're not innocent to me
You're too uppity for me
You're just a stupid girl to me
To me

[Chorus x2]

Stupid girls, girls, girls, girls...back to top
Envy Me
You're J.E.A.L.O.U.S
Because I've got bigger breast
I know you're envious of me
It's useless to pretend
That you want to be my friend
You can't control your jealousy

[Prechorus x2:]

Unhappy with yourself
Go pick on someone else
"Miss Insecurity" You have no reason to hate me
I'm not your enemy
I'm not your enemy

Why do girls analyze Evaluate and criticize
Other girls that they don't know
Spreading rumors, spreading lies,
Talking shit when I walk by
You're always stepping on my toes

[Chorus:]
Jealous of me
Please don't be jealous of me
Please don't be jealous of me
Please don't be jealous of me

[Prechorus]

[Chorus]back to top
Reflections
Reflecting on what we once shared
Now I know how much you really cared
You cared for me
I never did appreciate
The sacrifices that you made
You made for our love our love

[Chorus x2:]
I know that you deserve
More than I could ever offer
But I can't change who I am

And if you knew what was in store
Why did you persevere and endure
As long as you did For our love
All the words left unsaid
I can't seem to get out of my head, my head
Believe me I meant you no harm, no harm
I'm sorry
Reflecting on what we once shared
Now I know much you really cared
You cared for our loveback to top
