Portrait of a Cigarette Smoker at 19
I used to be a stereotype
Half alive with half open eyes
With a one track mind
And a flawed design
Feeling like I was lost at sea
At only the age of 19
Floating around in alcohol and apathy
Taking in too much caffeine and nicotine

And if we make it out of here alive
Just say you won't look back to see
Just who we left behind

There might not be a next time
With all the ups and downs and tunrarounds
There might not be a next time
Through all the breaking ups and breaking downs
There might not be a next time
Yea we were the ones who said
There might not be a next time

I used to be a stereotype
Someone you'd never recognise
With fingers as yellow
That they matched the yellow skies
And there was a few things I memorized
From all those blurry times
Like bottles clinking under blinking signs
And a few last words from long lost friends of mine

And if we make it out of here alive
Just say you won't look back to see
Just who we left behind

There might not be a next time
With all the ups and downs and tunrarounds
There might not be a next time
Through all the breaking ups and breaking downs
There might not be a next time
Yea we were the ones who said
There might not be a next time

And if we make it out of here alive
Just say you won't look back to see
Just who we left behind
Just who we left behind

After all the fuck ups and fall outs
There might not be a next time
With all the ups and downs and tunrarounds
There might not be a next time
Through all the breaking ups and breaking downs
There might not be a next time
Yea we were the ones who said
There might not be a next time
Might not be a next time
There might not be a next time

Sleep It Off
i might as well just sleep it off
wishful thinking's got my wires crossed (whoa ho)
when i am desperate and alone
i know i know i know how low i go

so i'll drive and disapear
and maybe if i'm luck by this time next year
no one i know will know my name
it's either change or go or i'll explode today
i'll leave a note on my machine
unplug the phone and finish packing all my things
i found a photograph of me
its been such a slow decay
day to day i don't even recognize my own face

i had another breakdown
and i'm floating face down
i might as well just sleep it off
wishful thinking's got my wires crossed (whoa ho)
when i am desperate and alone
i know i know i know how low i go

i'm going to sleep it off
this sinking feeling of always feeling lost
hasn't been that long
six years worth of always being wrong
i met an old friend out on the street
trade stories and out of date memories
and she has a photograph of me it's been such a slow decay day to day
did we seem much happier in those days

its been a slow decay
day to day i don't even recognize my face

i know i know i know how low i go [x4]back to top
Last Rites to Sleepless Nights
Tonight i'll be wiping my slate clean
I''ll be clearing out those clouded memories
cause i don't to keep living in the past
and i can't stand how i always do that
tonight because you know i'm sick to death with every last regret and what i've said
and now all i really have left is my head
and its just a mess

Tonight i will dance on the graves of all my darkest days
and erase all the worries of all the time i wasted my scars may never go away
but i'll learn not to mind them along the way

tonight because you know i'm sick to death with every last regret and what i've said
and now all i really have left is my head
and its just a mess

Tonight i will dance on the graves of all my darkest days
and erase all the worries of all the time i wasted my scars may never go away
but i'll learn not to mind them along the way

right now i am giving the last rights to all my sleepless nights
right now i am starting clean and i am going on with my life

Bridge and Tunnel Authority
i remember every bridge i ever jumped off blindly
And all my boring stories keep reminding me

'cause in all honesty i used to be an authority
on irony and remembering my broken dreams and everything that used to be around
and it's not so complicated to explaine why these feelings faded

please pass some sanity, saint of mediocrity and keep me out of my sobriety 14 and 23,
bridge and tunnel authority will keep me out of my sobriety

I say we just celebrate (I say we just celebrate)
And all my past mistakes and all my too little to lates

'cause in all honesty i used to be an authority
on irony and remembering my broken dreams and everything that used to be around

And did i ever mention that i've lost al my best intentions

please pass some sanity, saint of mediocrity and keep me out of my sobriety 14 and 23,
bridge and tunnel authority will keep me out of my sobrietyback to top
Goodbye in Gasoline
My lungs are aching
From the cold from being outside.
And the windows in my car
Have started to fog up.
And it's colder then I remember it ever being in Florida.

My stomach's burning
And the stereo in this car is screaming so loud.
It's 3 in the morning
I'm just starting to wake up.
And it's darker then I remember it ever being in Florida.

The saddest song always plays
On the radio on the worst days,
So I'm saying goodbye in gasoline.
It's the only way I know

My head in spinning
And this engine is humming and clicking in time.
To the pounding in my head
And this heart on my sleeve
And it's quieter then I remember.
And it can go on forever.

Do you know how many times
How many times I've counted the signs of State lines
and roads I've known.
I know, this time, feels like goodbye.

My lungs are aching
From the cold from stading outside.
And it's no surprise that we're fucked up.
But you're colder then I remember
you ever being in Florida.back to top
A.S.A.O.K.
This song for everyone that said I was
programmed, hardwired, that I'd self-destruct
They'd say I was destined to always be desperate
They'd say I was destined to always fuck up

And I was voted the first one to crumble and break
I'd never have a chance, the biggest waste
But now I'm the one who's laughin' last
Because your the one who keeps lookin' back

Your the one who's fading away

This song for everyone that said I was
programmed, hardwired, that I'd self-destruct
They'd say I was destined to always be desperate
They'd say I was destined to always fuck up

And I was voted the first one to crumble and break
I'd never have a chance, the biggest waste
But now I'm the one who's laughin' last
Because your the one who keeps lookin' back

Your the one who's fading awayback to top
Jay Frenzal
looking down the barrel of a gun
all the drinks are free and your ex is gone
another day in the sun has got you all fucked up
watch out this is gonna be good
cause jay i can see it see it in your eyes
there's something wrong with that disguise
as you devised, your mind would race
to that ever so destructive fucking place

jay frenzal broke our bus
ya jay frenzal went ape shit he smashed our bus
in detroit michigan with a 2 by 4 and a shitty gin

"... oh shit here comes your bus driver he's pissed .."

Showbiz? Science? Who Cares?
If you had all the facts, all the fictions
If you knew everything about science and all about religion
Would you stand by your convictions
Would you still make all the right decisions
Would you accept someone elses opinions, in this life

Cause its all a leap of faith
From white plastic saints
To all those hard questions you have to face
Every single day, every single day

Because is it whatever it takes to get you by
Wats the right thing to do in this crazy mixed up life
Sad or sober or strong or with closed eys
Would you still make all the right decisions
Would you accept someones forgiveness, in this life

Ive read the books, and I still dont have the answers
And thats fine
Whatever it takes to get you by

Cause its all a leap of faith
From white plastic saints
To all those hard questions you have to face
Every single day, every single dayback to top
Nine-One-One to Anyone
so i will, i'll be the one who's coming clean
with ever single thing
and all my thoughts in between
i wonder if anyone is just like me
a walking talking catastrophe
another story of dependency
i neve thought the face in the mirror would be me

hey 911 to everyone [x3]
im in a state of emergancy

like a shot, a shot without a chaser
life's in a flash it moves way to fast
the most bitter pill you've ever tasted
i wonder if anyone is just like me
a walking talking catastrophe
another story of dependency
i neve thought the face in the mirror would be me

im afraid of growing up and growing old
afriad of the past and present
and what my future might hold

hey 911 to everyone [x3]
im in a state of emergancy

hey 911 to everyone [x3]
im in a state of emergancyback to top
Robots One, Humans Zero
So what have we really learned today
that some things are easier when we walk away
and acting normal means acting like everyone eles
and you're better of by not acting like yourself

are we buy what they're selling
do we have our eyes open
life's not a fashion statement
it takes more than good intentions

It's just prefect day in our perfect lives
just as long as we have commericals and things to hide behind
it's a life so real you only watch it
on a moive screen getting so close you can almost touch it

are we buy what they're selling
do we have our eyes open
life's not a fashion statement
it takes more than good intentions
[x2]

they never bought or sold you
they can't image and mold you
to chase something cause we think its new
thinking thats the best for you

are we buy what they're selling
do we have our eyes open
life's not a fashion statement
it takes more than good intentions
[x2]

let me tell you what the score is robots 1 humans 0back to top
National Anthem
just being here today i feel like a long lost friend
well just wait around cause the desperation's kicking in, and its already starting to mix with one of my best peices of fiction

and it's called i'll be getting by and i'll make ends meet does the forty hour week have you bent at the knees and you can't even see that everything's kept just out of reach

ever get that funny feeling that your future is not going to be legit, and that for sale sign thats hanging on your neck might as well spell defeat, yeah its already starting to mix with on of my best peices of fiction

and it's called i'll be getting by and i'll make ends meet does the forty hour week have you bent at the knees and you can't even see that everything's kept just out of reach

my american dream is to have it a little bit better than my parents ever had it [x2]

my american dream is to have it a little bit better than its just a force habit

my american is to have it a little bit better than my parents ever had itback to top
