Sugarcoated Poison Apple
it eats at you i know, but it's so hard to let it go
let yourself go yah just let yourself go
it consumes you can't you see that sin hates everybody
everybody, sin hates everybody
even though i know the reasons why, it breaks me down i want to cry
i search for comfort in a friend, when will my troubles ever end?
the sugarcoated poisoned apple
tastes so good that you can't see
the death and decay that's inside
and what it's done to me
the sugarcoated poisoned apple
tastes do good how could you know
its deciteful lies
and where you're gonna goback to top
Do & Don't
i still don't know what i want to do
i'd probably still ask you if i knew
what i'm doing now seems to be okay
if it's your will if it's your way
don't want to have to deal with pointless bureaucracy
making sure where something goes or making sure that your agree
well i don't even know what my choices are
should i fly a plane, or should i drive a car?
nothing's clear to me, my eyes won't do a thing for me
i'll just wait right here, until i am what i will be
whatever it is i'm sure ill know, when the time comes he will show
me what to do, and me where to go
all i've got is a skateboard and a guitar
i go to a lot of punk shows a i drive a car
i don't like to work and i don't like to go to school
the teachers think that i'm a girl and the kids they think that i'm uncool
i'm just not interested in much of anything
wouldn't want to be a president, don't want to be a king
i just want to ride my skateboard just want to play my bass
every now and then strum a chord, sometimes land right on my face
have you any ideas? i can't tell by a chart
i wanna do what he wants me to, i'm gonna do my part-yah!back to top
Teenage Politics
The other tab for this song was slighty off, so this one is correct...rock on

Verse 1
No i'm not mad, but I think they forget
What it's like, and how hard it is
To be a teenager
This is a new day and age, we read a different book
Where Elvis ain't the rage
And polyester ain't the look

Will we change at all, when we get old?
Or will we be the same, never do what we're told?
Well that depends on you, are you doing the right thing?
It's not about control, it's about you and me and understanding

Chorus
Teenage Politics, it's too confusing
Politics Schmolitics, it's too confusing (2x)

Verse 2
Is it time again, to disagree
about anything, and everything and what's
on t.v?
It's a vicious circle, never ending
a linear equation, worldly extending

Chorus

Verse 3
No I'll never be like you, I'll never ever be like you, oh no!
No i'll never be like you, I'll never ever be like you, oh no...
I'm just like youback to top
Punk Rawk Show
We ain't got no place to go
So let's go to the punk rawk show
Darling take me by the hand
We're gonna see a punk rawk band
There's no use in tv shows
Radio or rodeos
I wanna get into the crowd
I wanna hear it played real loud
Aint' got no money to pay
We'll get in anyway doesn't matter I don't care
It's feel good so we should share
We're going to the punk rawk show! oooohh!! ooohh!!back to top
The Opposite of Intellect
It seems so hard to get away from last week and yesterday
I have to sit right here and watch it all go by
Is this really happening? maybe this is just a dream
When I wake up ill be someone else
I don't want to grow up, not just yet
I don't wanna have to see your false sence of reality
I don't wanna grow up, not just yet
I don't wanna have to know how to play in your game show
Just don't ask me if you're getting thru to me
Just don't tell me the way that you want me to be
You say ill fit nicely in society
You only took a superficial look at me
Why can't I say I'm sick of you? is it wrong to say what's true?
I'm skeptical about your point of view
Teaching us not to reflect, the opposite of intellect
Don't resist authority and you'll be fine
You don't want me to speak my mind.back to top
False Fiction
They guarantee our freedom but freedom isn't real
Unless you know christ you won't know how I feel
Inflections of the way things were supposed to be
The mental disorder of our society
False finite ways of thinking
False fiction they're believing
Entropy is still promoting chaos
It's chaos, it's your loss
Maybe this world has stopped thinking
Maybe all their minds are shrinking
Your failed system is inducing chaos
It's chaos, it's your loss
Building, moving forward never looking back
Taking what the world has offered, but you forgot the pack
Common sense,logic,science, a humble self esteem
Live to die and die to gain, abort the selfish sceneback to top
Falling Down
You're only interested when our power's threatened
You're only paranoid cause you know what you're doing
You know what you've done and what you're about to do
The conspiracy to your inconsistency
Could it be your spirit's dead?
Why do you run away when faced with these questions?
I know you know it
But you just won't say you built this conformist system
You built this state and now you're falling down
Your education teaches us not to resist
Subjects don't question kings
It disrespect, they slam you in the face with their fist
You'll do anything to keep from falling down!back to top
Money Tree
4 more years ain't right for me, I don't think so
Won't let them teach me how to be a money tree
That's what you are
That's all you'll ever be
A money tree
They've got you planted in the ground, you don't know it
They make you put your money down & they take it
Never want to be your money treeback to top
Rainy Day
They just point the finger they don't care
They don't think I know you think
Where did I go wrong? what did I do?
Where did I conflict with you?
You can't tell me that you care
When you're never ever there
I don't ask a lot from you
But you've got better things to do
I thought I knew you I don't know
Do you just want me to go? cause I'll go
Actions over words to you I'm nothing
You seem so far away where are you today?
Don't just leave me in a box
Then walk away
Don't just put me in a box
For a rainy day
For a rainy day...back to top
Democracy
Believing the lies defines american
They don't realize their ignorance and sin
Democracy ain't real it's a fairytale
Anarchy now then spend the night in jail
I won't pretend that it ain't wrong
I won't just go along
Humanity is deseased
And the sickness has increased
For the people by the people
Who's considered people anyway?
The rich get richer and the poor get poorer
So much for equal opportunity!back to top
Something More
I've lost all words to say, driving everyone away
Am I really all that bad, or am I going mad?
I'm a face from yesterday, always in the way
Hiding all my pain, it's driving me insane
If you fell this way, each and everyday
There's got to be something more
You want your like to change, something's got change
So live for something more
No one ever calls, you're sick of it all
Your friends don't come around, they all let you down
What's gotten into you? there's nothing you can do
To make it all seem right, so why put up a fight?back to top
Different Things
She's been told so many differnt things
She just don't know what she believes
It all makes sense at the time
But don't forget that we are blind
When the obvious is real
She still ignores the way she feels
You can run jump sit or stand around
But not for long unless you've found
Jesus christ,god,son and sacrifice
Believe in him, he'll open up your eyes.back to top
Misunderstanding
Been told once, been told twice
He just won't listen to advice
It's in god's book but he don't wanna look
His friends say it's so uncool
You're better off without those rules
Your life's your own, you live it alone
He can't ignore his misunderstanding leaves him sore
He can't explain why his life is full of so much pain
He parents pushed it on him
He wasn't ever really interested
Now he's old enough to make up his own mind
He was only going thru the motion
Now he's drawing in the ocean
Of these hateful times & he believes he's rightback to top
Study Humans
Everyday I go to school and study humans
I sit and watch them all go by
Everyday's a new day to study humans
I sit and ovserve this girl named bri with my eye
All those mannerisms and the funny things the do
Humans and their dogmas the defend so selfisly
I'm planning to take over cause I hate living on the moon
They won't get suspicious cause the soaps are on at noonback to top
Inquiring Minds Want to Know
How you fell depends on what you think about
What you need depends on what you can't live without
How you act goes right back to the way you feel
What you see isn't always what is real
So where do we go? and what do we do?
You're asking me and I'm asking you
To be real with yourself and don't play the game
Of daily life, it's all the same
The way you think depends on what you're going thru
What you create comes from deep inside of you
What you know makes the difference in what you hate
What you love depends on how you relate
Inquiring minds want to know.back to top
I'm the Bad Guy
Legalistic people suck legalism makes me sick
I wonder what makes them tick? I wanna go puke on it
Ephesians verse 2:8 states God has saved us not by works but by grace
So what's it gonna take? there's no getting thru to you
So what's it gonna take?
There's no getting thru to you
I'm way to young
To have a point of view
This whole thing just bums me out, jesus knows my heart
But you don't care you've already made up you mind
I try to change my attitude but it's really hard
I'm so sick of you, God is gonna pull thruback to top
Americanism
Have they got what they wanted?
Cause they've taken everything
Was it for the money?
Or is political power to blame?
Would you die for your country?
False freedom and liberty
They're lying when they tell us
This is the home of brave and land of the free
Why aren't we against them?
Cause we know that they are wrong
We're the biggest faction
And they've had control too long
Americanism, nationalism, bow to the flagism!
Militaristic, egotistic, high class and capitolistic!back to top
Delores
My girl hates the ira
It's true she just a fantasy
Don't know her she don't know me
We'd make the perfect memory
Nothing in this world could be better
Than falling in love with her
She'd write me the most beautiful of songs

1, 2, 3, go! go! go! go!back to top
