Session
(Kristine Luna/Jill Eckhaus/The Offspring)

I don't know when it got this way
I don't know how long she's gonna stay
Every week it's the same in her room
That's why I came

Here I go, here I go again
Our rendezvous never seem to end
I know where I'll be, I'll make this confession
Back in her bed for another goddamn session

CHORUS
I'll never learn
God knows I try
Keep coming back for session
And I don't know why
I'll never learn, I'll never see
Just tell me why these sessions got a hold on me

Some might say it's a fling
For all I know it don't mean a thing
Either way I can't complain
Ain't no strings
Guess I got it made

Here I go, I go again
Our renezvous never seem to end
I know where I'll be
I'll make this confession
Back in her bed for another goddamn session

CHORUSback to top
We Are One
We are one with ourselves
We don't give a shit about anyone else
Well it won't be wrong until our day in the sun is gonna stop
The walls come tumbling down

CHORUS
We are one
We are free
We are headed for obscurity
We are one
We are weak
We are gonna make ourselves extinct

Let it go
We're gonna let it go
It's real, we are one
You know it's true
Don't fuck with us or we'll fuck with you
It's a mentality that kills the best
We better stop
The walls come tumbling down

CHORUS

We are one and it won't be news
When we hang ourselves with one collective noose
Well, it won't be wrong until our day in the sun is gonna stop
The walls come tumbling down

CHORUS

The bigger they are
The harder they fallback to top
Kick Him When He's Down
Hey, you're a riddle
I say as I move aside
(Like I really need your advice)
But you won't leave it alone
Little men try but don't get a lot done
Living in sin doesn't move me either way
I get a feeling you're so vague
Like I said before
LIttle men come when anything goes

CHORUS
When the rain comes I sit home and pray
Make it all numb
I wish it all away
All i really need is just somewhere to hide away
Kick him when he's down
Here alone I'll put up and fight
Kick him when he's down
Beat me all the way I'll take it all night
Kick him when he's down
Hey, don't worry, I'll get along home alright

Hey, everybody's supposed to be the same
So how come they're so lame?
It's like taking a fall
Keep on running back into that wall
Awake in a dream, get up and go to work
But I'm feeling like such a jerk
Like I said before
Little men come when everything goes

CHORUS

Hey, you're a riddle I say as I move aside
(Like I really need your advice)
But you won't leave it alone
Little men try but don't get a lot done
Living in sin doesn't move me either way
I get a feeling you're so vague
Like I said before
Little men come when anything goes

CHORUSback to top
Take It Like A Man
When you won't go along
Some will feel like you can't find your way
Heaven knows
Heaven knows I've seen it all before
Now don't get me wrong
I've seen many a life gone astray
When someone goes
All your bows won't make it any better so let it go

CHORUS
Shut up and take it like a man
You need us to get a life
For your own good we'll take you by the hand
'Cause you need a little more

Maybe no one will say it
Maybe no one's aware it goes on
All I know
All I know it's like going off the deep end
Could you make a decision?
Could you think for yourself and go on?
Everyone knows
Everyone knows you've got to fit into the mainstream so save your woes

CHORUS

Close your eyes
Look away now
Make believe while you can
So you'd best go along
Don't let on if you can't find your way
Many more
Many more do it for you
Because heaven knows
Heaven knows it's like playing with fire
Your life's a throw

CHORUSback to top
Get It Right
I've been told that to get what you want
You just gotta give what you can
But I know for what I want it don't come easy as that
They say, "Look out, boy
Tomorrow comes and things will look better by then."
But I'll look out the window
Then look in the mirror at the same old me again

CHORUS
Still can't get it right
And for all I know
I swear I never will

Do you think you'd sell your soul
To just have one thing to turn out right?
For the thousandth time you turnand find
That it just makes no difference to try
Like Holden Caulfield, I tell myself
There's got to be a better way
Then I lay in bed and stare at the ceiling
Dream of brighter days

CHORUS

No way out
Same old stuff always drags me down
Now way out
Never gonna get itback to top
Dirty Magic
In my own simple way
I think she wants me only
She said," Come over right away."
But she's just not that way
Her little soul is tolen
See her put on her brand new face

CHORUS
Pull the shades
Razor blades
You're so tragic
I hate you so but love you more
I'm so elastic
The things you say
Games you play
Dirty magic

I should know better than to think I'd reach inside her
It's all acloudy kind of daze
She's not so sweet today
She mocks me, I'm no fighther
It all just seems like such a waste
It's oversimplified

CHORUSback to top
Hypodermic
When you're feeling low
Hypodermic's where you go
WHen you're with yourself
You wish yo ucould be someone else

CHORUS
Can't you see like you saw anymore?
Can't you feel like you felt before?
Can't you face anything anymore?
When life's a waste
Run away
Your life's a waste
Run away

Once you get a ride
Doesn't matter where you lied
Once you shoot it in
Doesn't matter who you've been
You're reeaching in but you don't know where to begin
All your dance and song won't matter when you're gone

CHORUSback to top
Burn It Up
I think I'm burning up inside
I think I'll take a little ride
I'm gonna light up everything in sight
I'll drive on by your yard
And throw a Molotov cocktail at your car
Then another in the local bar

CHORUS
Ignition
They call it an obsession but I think it's kinda bitchin'
I think it's kinda neat
Yeah, I'm a pyro
I wanna burn it up
Yeah, I'm a pyro

Tonight this 'hood will be a pyre
I'm gonna set your house on fire
I'll dance around the pretty flames
Such a wonderful game!

CHORUS

I want to make a tiki torch
I'm gonna throw it on your porch
Then I'm gonna run away
And come back another day
So many houses, so little time
So many reasons, I'm not a crime
I'd like to set you up
I'd like to set you up

CHORUSback to top
No Hero
Once you said you'd stick to it until the end
I guess you lied, the call it suicide
Now you're gone
What was so wrong that you couldn't find a way to carry on?
Second guess
Did I do my best?
There was a friend I had

CHORUS
Johnny was a weirdo
So what did you expect?
I ain't no fucking hero
I'm just trying to survive myself

I should have known you went through it alone
I wonder why did you even try?
You could have come to me
I would have helped you see
You could have found a way to carry on
Second guess
Did i do my best?
There was a friend I had...

CHORUS

Johnny's strange behavior was a tip-off, they say
But I ain't no fucking savior
I'm just living day by day

Little things, little lives hanging 'til the end
I say it doesn't really mean nothing
Telling truth, telling lies
I used to have a friend
I say it don't really mean nothing
And I can't let this feeling go
Let this feeling go
Let this feeling goback to top
L.A.P.D.
When cops are taking care of business I can understand
But the L.A. story's gone way out of hand
Their acts of aggression, they say they're justified
But it seems an obsession has started from the inside
They're shooting anyone who even tries to run
They're shooting little kids with toy guns
Take it to a jury but they don't give a damn
Because the one who tells the truth is always the policeman

CHORUS
Beat all the niggers
Beat whoever you see
Don't need a reason
(We're) L.A.P.D.

The city of L.A. feels like a prison
With helicopters overhead and bullets whizzing by
Martial law ain't no solution
Police brutality's just social pollution

Beat all the white trash
Beat whoever you see
Don't need a reason
(We're) L.A.P.D.

They say they're keeping the peace
But I'm not buying it because a billy club ain't much of a pacifier
"Protecting your freedom"
Now that's just a lie
It's an excuse for power that's more like an alibi
Law and order doesn't really matter
When you're the one getting bruisedand battered
You take it to a jury, they'll throw it in your face
Because justice in L.A. comes in a can of mace

CHORUSback to top
Nothing From Something
(Martin Ferguson/The Offspring)

Things are coming down on me
They never seem to let it be
It seems like everything I say just starts another fight
The pressure's building up inside
I gotta let it out tonight
Shattered glass will cure my ills and make me feel alright

CHORUS
Gonna break it
And never stop running
Making nothing from something
Making nothing from something

Cut me for the lion's share
It's mindless, but I don't care
'Cause no matter what I say
I'm in a another fight
Take more shit, I've had enough
Tonight I'm gonna rip it up
Broken windows cure my ills and make me feel alright

CHORUSback to top
Forever And A Day
Look at me while I look at you
Seeing eye to eye we can never do
You try to tell me what is right
I may not know a lot but I know one thing

CHORUS
If you've got the answer
Then I don't want to know
If you've got the answer
Just keep it your own

I wonder why our world is ablaze
Sometimes I speak aloud to hear what people have to say
I try to have an open mind
But your brain and mouth must not be connected

If you've got the answer
Then I don't want to know
If you've got the answer
Just leave me alone

I would be patient but it takes so long
I don't want all this misinformation
All the words that you say
Lean on me while I lean on you
If we destroy each other
We might save a life or two
A little sun, a little shine
Separates us both by forever and a day

CHORUS

If you've got a vision
Then I don't want to see
If you've got a notion
Don't waste it on me
