The Happy Ending
There's nothing for me here
I'm starting to get old
Time just ticks on
We've all been taking some comfort in repetition
And I'm left with no way to scratch
What has been itching and I'm
I'm ready and waiting
For the happy ending
Now the days go by
They pass right through us
Our night lives make us so useless
Now don't take anything to heart
We don't care
We don't want to start
Well, I'm leaving for a while
I'll head in some direction
I just don't know which one I should be taking
And I'm ready and waiting
For the happy ending
I'm begging and pleading
For another beating
I'm ready and waiting
For the happy endingback to top
Badd Business
So you've been trying to get ahead
But coming out empty handed
Losing all the friends you made instead

You pushed your way up to the top
You got so tall you had to stop
Did you squint to see who you were stepping on?

It's your secret to success
That's causing such a mess
And to be honest
Forgetting all of us

Now that is just bad business

You think you're worth your weight in gold
While everybody's looking like the color of money
We knew you when and we don't really think it's funny
Ok
I'm just hoping for that day when
your business life comes to an end
Deal with us just like people again

But you're just scheming on success
And only coming up with meager messiness
You can sell, sell, sell
And never do well
When dealing in bad business

If you're planning to invest
Well, any day now we'll be coming to collect

You can sell, sell, sell
And never do well
When dealing in bad business
It's a disease the way that greed and excess spreads

You never know, I could be nextback to top
Big Brat

It was all his fault,
Introduced me to knowitall
And the cannibal
Oh, well...
By the time they started showing up,
I ran the risk of blowing up
These times, these times get tough
So if i stay we're going to see who's had enough
By the time i needed backing up,
Ya he was watching, cracking up
This time, this time it's tough
Well here I am and now and I think I've had enough
Stand back
Take that and that and that

You're always up to no good
Ya you're always up to no good

Well I was trapped in from all sides
Caught in a slew of massive lies
No, there is no escape, only flailing arms and bellyaches
When it all started coming down, tonight, or did you run and hide?
Well I guess that we all make mistakes, I guess I forgave you didn't I?
Stand back
You're such a big brat

Ya you're always up to no good
Ya you're always up to no goodback to top
1st Things 1st
You should get your story straight before I start to doubt it
Cuz if you've worn your lipstick off, I want to hear about it

And telling me would be such a breeze, tell me if you want to leave

I think I'm getting the drift
You want some time with your friends
On the nights and weekends
You take the time for yourself
Both of us used to spend
Before you make it better
Before you make it worse
First things first

I don't think it's an accident you treat me like a dummy
Hold on, Hold on
I've been asking for the truth at least just tell me something
Hold on, Hold on

And telling me would be such a breeze
Let me know, don't let me be

It's almost too easy
I'm holding you by the hand
More like the nape of your neck
Why don't you draw up a list you have to frequently check?
And put some things in order
And lose it in your purse
First things Firstback to top
Making a Killing
Cut your losses
Cut your ties
Start a new life

These things they can tie you up, weigh you down
Wear you in then wear you out

One day you could find yourself suddenly
Underneath a guillotine

You'll have to answer up for
What you want and what that means

That's the difference between
Breaking the bank and
Just breaking even

Making a living and
Making a killing

Why don't you buy yourself a gift for the work you've been putting in

Maybe a little something you could toss in that pit
Of emptiness you're pregnant with
Or maybe you could go and lose yourself altogether
Nothing's getting any better
Oh, no!

Is that what you really want when all is said and done with me?
That's the difference between
Breaking the bank and
Just breaking even
Making a living and
Making a killing

Like bills in a short stack
And bills to the ceiling
Making a living and
Making a killing

Well I found myself suddenly
Underneath the guillotine

For heaven's sake, I'm here, I'm willing
Let's make everyone a killing!back to top
You're Not Welcome Here
Upon the hour of your arrival
I will draw the line
You take your side of the city
Don't set foot on mine

You told me when we met
I told you when we left
That we're through
We're through
So I thought
You knew
You disappeared
Now you're not welcome here

Across the park we used to walk through
Keep that for yourself
Well the next that heard
You wouldn't have me
That's for someone else
That is mine to keep
That is mine to keep
I know at least
I shared my keys
Made it clear
That you're not wlecome here

I told you when we met
You told me when you left
I know at least
I shared my keys
Made it clear
That you're not welcome here
You're not wlecome here
You're not wlecome here
You're not welcome hereback to top
By the Bed
Her eyes were closed when I caught her in bed
Oh, she seemed much happier then
I sat by her side and I couldn't help but cry
I was here for a reason and I
Finally understood and my oh my
Could only ask myself why oh why
Can't we talk this through and make things right?
Oh, I'd sure as hell like to try
Right about this time she opened her eyes
And asked how long I had been there
Well, my tongue was tied
I said nothing, I just stared
She said, "Oh, I didn't think you cared..."
Well, I wasn't ready for what she said next
She said, "There is nothing else that you can do
No, you can't understand what I'm going through
And if the world has changed, well, I'll be damned
Oh, 'cause I'm no good at being brave
Not even on the better days
And there are things we cannot save
No matter how hard we try
There is nothing else that you can do
No, you can't understand what I'm going through
And if the world has changed, well, you'll do fine..."
Oh, I tried, but no, I could not stand
I touched her with a trembling hand
I choked
I could not say goodbye
No matter how hard I triedback to top
Knowitall
I came home as someone else
Must have wished it on myself
When I got
Lost in thought while
We were out

Hours have passed and I have seen
The I am stuck between
Who I've been
And who I'm thinking
I could be

I was listening to a battle begin
Wondering which side would win

Did you say
Something? I'm
Sorry I
Apologize

I can tell
After this there's nothing else
Nothing you can't solve
If you're such a knowitall

Maybe I'm not good enough
Or you don't resemble what I've built up
After months
See it looming
Over us

Tell me I made some mistake
Entertaining a second date
I'm a mess
So nervous and it's
Getting late

What should I do?
I'll tell you.
Pretty soon I'll shatter in two.

Just because
You place something high enough
The harder it can fall
But you knew that.
You're a knowitallback to top
Jabberjaw
Isn't there enough to talk about?
I don't want what else is running out your mouth
Chewing my ears from my head
Will not keep me interested

I wanna put you on someone else
I wanna leave you all by yourself

If I look like I'm involved
Well, I ain't listening at all

You never listen to a single thing I say
How in the hell did I get into this mess anyway?
Oh yeah, I was

Shot in the hall with a glance
If looks could kill I would've never had a chance
And you could bury me where I lie
I'm so unhappy that I could die

Other people, they're not looking
Anywhere in your direction
Got this creeping party doubt
There's no chance I'm ever getting out

You're having fun at my expense
Oh yeah, you're raking up
Sometimes I think that you
Wanna end up with no one to talk to!

Other people, they're not looking
Anywhere in your direction
Got this creeping party doubt
There's no chance I'm ever getting out

They're acting like somebody near
Just passed away in here

So if I go
No
When I do
You'll end up with no one to talk to!

Ha!!
Ha!!
Ha!!back to top
After Hours
Watching everybody leaving,
I tell myself, "Looks can be deceiving."
Oh, I'm hoping that I'm not right
This after hours, afterlife
I'm not ready to die in style tonight.

Tried to follow you out,
But I did not know where you'd be leading on,
And you might think people don't live through being wrong.
Well I guess that your parents must have raised a themselves a strictly pious daughter,
'Cause you move through this crowd
just like parting water.

Oh you dress so nice
You dress to kill
They drop like flies
But who's the funeral for?

Afterwhile these hot, hot nights can turn everything sour
Oh, I know it's not hard to get in trouble after hours.back to top
The Meantime
Hold on
Hold out
Your day's full
Ok, that's fine
I don't mind
The meantime

You've got your things to do
Places you
Have to go
So and so
I don't mind the meantime

If I could count
From then til now
I'd count too high
I can't help but think about the meantime

Saving time
Spending it poorly
I've been pretty foolish in
The meantime

If what comes next is
So damn precious
Why should I mind
What you're doing meanwhile?

Lately I've been
Lost in thought
Around the clock
Hands are flying and
I can tell you're running out of meantime

Now I know it's over too quick
Got my finger on
Where it's all gone
Don't look back 'cause I won't be there
I don't have anymore to spare
It's all mine!
