Two of a Kind
Hangin' out and lingerin' around,
'cause you know where I'll be found and I don't know how you do it.
This obsession I must admit has shaken me up a bit.
My solidarity now only comes in pairs.
I'd like to see you before you see me.
I'd like to see you.
I'd like to see you leave.
Showered by torrential praise, why it is I can't explain.
Attempts to leave yield no avail.
For me I don't know what's in store.
All I want is nothing more.
I don't deserve what I get, I have nothing to return.back to top
Half-Empty Bottle
The ends don't always justify the means,
but I know what it takes to get what I need.
I've got the cure when passive protest just wont do.
Just flick my Bic as I hold it to the fuse.
Smash it up.
Break it down.
Bring it down, down to the ground.
Tear it up.
Burn it down.
Burn it down, down to the ground.
How long have we waited for the day when they tighten their grips and we slip away?
The sound of breaking glass drives me back up.
It makes me whole when I've been down on my luck.back to top
Yürf Rendenmein
You keep on sayin' that you want to know me but you never show me your true self.
How can you ever expect someone else to know you when all you're going to do is just pretend that you're someone else?
You keep on sayin' that you want to show me that you're really different, but your just the same.
If you're really mindless then there is no way that I can win, maybe you're just one of them, or maybe it's just a game.
You lie to yourself and remain alone. I'm not exactly sure of your motivation.
I'm not exactly sure what you're tryin' to do.
All I'm really sure is that you're not too impressive and you're wearin' a mask that I can't see through.
Maybe you're not looking for acceptance, maybe you're striving for something more.
If it's status that you lust then why try to be one of us?
You're someone we'll never trust 'cause we know the score.back to top
Brownie Bottom Sundae
Into the dark is where you're draggin' me and into your dark is where I never want to be.
I know I'm not alone and I really want to leave.
Into the dark is where you want to watch me bleed.
I'm feelin' kinda trapped, I gotta go.
I'm feelin' kinda trapped don't you know.
I'm feelin' kinda trapped I gotta go.
I gotta go.
I'm being dragged down, for how long,
I don't know.
I'm being dragged down and I rise up way too slow.
I know I don't belong here and I think I ought to go.
I hope that I can leave here, leave here with my soul.back to top
The Checkered Demon
Too much to find, so much so little time.
So many images persist to shade my mind.
Will I ever come around or will I just hit the ground?
Will I still be standing when it all comes down?
Why can't I seem to sort it out?
Why am I always filled with doubt?
So many people everywhere, so self absorbed without a care.
Of their viral lives, I'd like to bleed them all.
When all is drained, who shall hold?
When mindless bodies screw tortured souls, will somebody be there to catch me when I fall?
Why can't I seem to sort it out.
Why am I always filled with doubt.
How could I always be so blind?
Why can't I figure it out.
I could always hope for change, could always hope to rearrange.
But why not just abandon hope and tear it all apart now?back to top
Cereal Wars
Get up early in the morning, going to the store.
Post, Kellogs, General Mills? It's the cereal war.
Fuckin' store never has the monsters and they never get more.
Post, Kellogs, General Mills? It's the cereal war.
I hope sexual chocolate is in stock, it's got a condom in the box.
I'll try some cocoa puffs today. What the fuck is Sonny anyway?
Some say Dino's are the best, they've got more marshmallows than the rest.
There's not a lot of cocoa in cocoa crispies, and always stay away from wheaties.
Now it's dinner time and I'm going back to the store.
I had some Erkles, 'liked 'em a lot.
It's the cereal war.
I wish I were Calvin or Hobbes and then I could try sugar bombs.
The soggies will never get Cap'n Crunch,
I guess I'll have Crunch Berries for lunch.
Breakfast cereals need to be sweet, that's the only kind I'll eat.
Give me sugar not nuts and twigs!
Do I look like a fuckin' squirrel to you?back to top
The Mother in Me
Caught in a world that's plagued by something they called love.
A paradigm of illness is the beast I have become.
The sights that I have seen could nearly bring me to my knees.
I've seen exactly what it is I never want to be, but I keep it deep inside myself.
It's within me. Keep it deep within yourself and sink with me.
Last night I had the misfortune to see it all first hand.
"Evacuate the premises" was the innate first command.
What drives the need for all of this? And will I ever understand?
Has someone failed to tell me of this master plan?
But I keep it deep inside myself.
It's within me.
Keep it deep within yourself and sink with me.back to top
Rizzo in the Box
I'm always around you to show that I care but I don't know what for.
It seems to me that you couldn't care less so I'm not going to do it anymore.
I see no reason why I've placed such a value on you, but my thoughts have changed now,
I've opened my eyes and now I'm through.
Lookin' back at my short life, the few pleasures that I've found,
all your misconceptions pummel me into the ground.
Now, I look at your small life and it doesn't mean a bit.
I pick myself up off the ground 'cause I don't give a shit.
They say all good things come to an end, I wish this didn't apply.
You were once someone I called my friend but that's all now changed and I don't know why.
Things are very different now.
You've got nothing to say.
It' s sad when someone you know very well decides to fuckin' die and go away.back to top
Kung-Fu Devil
It's said and done, there is no turning back.
I've made my choice, now I've gotta face the facts.
Within myself, the hunger won't be subdued,
because I can't have my cake and eat it to.
I'm worn down from fighting with myself.
I'll save my life and lose my mental health.
I'm wiggin' out, everything is turnin' round.
A bitter taste - no comfort can be found
An emptiness wells inside of me,
there's no filling the void that will always be.
A self control is all I have to hold.
It's been too long. Maybe I have been to bold?
When you're bound by your own conviction a discipline can be your addiction.
I'm warn down from fighting with myself.
I'll save my life and lose my mental health.
I've gone this far so I'll keep tryin'.
Continue to fight, hope that I don't end up dying.back to top
Your Name Here
It's the same old situation, it seems it's coming 'round again.
I wont play the fool, I'm not screwin' around.
I only play to win.
I only want what I deserve so who are you tryin' to kid?
You can call it like you see it but I call it like it is.
I'm sick of shruggin' off your petty little ways.
The names are always changing, in the end it's just a game.
We're runnin' in a circle,
a never ending chase,
you keep on steppin' out of reach but you won't win the race.
No more waitin' around,
no more hangin' around , no more draggin' me down.
Everything's so easy for you but I've struggled to get this far.
I'm alone in the fight.
What's wrong, whose right?
I take it all to heart.
Your true colors start to show.
You call yourself a friend?
The teams are drawn, you chose your side, you'll get yours in the end.
You play along to the same old song just as long as you can win,
when someone better comes along, you're too cool to let them in.
So now I've got you wonderin' if I've got it in for you.
I'd like to tell you different but I can't because it's true.back to top
I want to stay in bed all throughout the day, no one bother me.
I don't wanna open my eyes. I'll lie here in my room.
I have no need to see. No one wake me I just want to stay in bed.
No one move me I just want to lie right here, right in my warm bed.
'cause I don't want to see tomorrow.
Here I am so happy, so just leave me be.
I just want to stay.
I do not bother you so don't you touch me. Get the fuck away!back to top
Don't Make Me Ill
Right now we've got a reason to live but it's got nothing to do with you.
We've got a lot of places we're gonna go,
a lot of things that we're gonna do.
In your world we may be no one,
but what makes you think you're someone?
We have got just what we need and we don't need you.
No one.
I can tell where our future lies,
and you can tell we've got nothing to hide.
The way things seem to me right now, everything will be just fined.
We're going to do it all our way.
We don't need you to darken our day.
We've never given up before and this stand won't be our first time.
No one's gonna tell me, I'm gonna do it my way.
No one's gonna tell me how to get it done.back to top
Open Your Eyes
You think I give a shit how I'm seen through your eyes,
I just can't fucking stand the way you always have to criticize.
You have to find something wrong in everything you see,
It seems it's not hard for you to find everything that's wrong with me.

Open your eyes and face the truth
Open your eyes, the real problem's you.

Does it build your self-esteem to look for mistakes in everyone else?
The only answer that I could find is that you're just not happy with yourself.
You, hide something about yourself when you point out everybody else's
Those problems that you have are just a little much for you to take.

Open your eyes, and face the truth.
Open your eyes, the real problem's you.back to top
Highschool Football Hero
Wanna be a highschool football hero with an S.A.T. score less then zero.
I wanna try to drink my weight in beer.
I wanna be a highschool football hero.
Wanna score a touchdown so I can score after the game.
Don't care about my future 'cause it is just another day.
I'll rush for forty yards and drink four forties later on.
I'm done with this brunette, someone pass another blonde.
Wanna be a highschool football hero with an S.A.T score less than zero.
I wanna try to drink my weight in beer.
I wanna be a high shcool football hero.
My coach tells me to drink my milk and wash it down with 'roids.
I've gotta get my rest so I can party with the boys.
My brain's put in upside-down so I'm just a little slow.
I'll change my name to Bubba so that everyone will know I wanna be a highschool football hero.back to top
I'm always short on cash and my mind is in the trash.
I can't find a way to get my head out of my ass.
I'm gettin' skinny as a bone 'cause I'm always stuck at home.
I'm living my life all fucked up and alone.
So once again, alone in my room,
my only apparent future is my unhappy doom.
So I just whine all the fucking time.
I'm hooked bad on caffeine, unless I get it I'm mean.
I can't remember last when I was chipper and clean.
I'm going insane, all I do is complain.
The only traits I show are depression and disdain.
The girl I love is going away, there is no way that she'll stay.
I don't know how I'm gonna live my life this way.
Don't want to have to try, I'll just sit around and cry.
Maybe, if I get lucky, I'll just fuckin' die.back to top
Key Lime Pie
Key lime.
Infatuation that shouldn't exist.
Key lime Pie.
Indulge and I am in your debt.
Key lime pie.
Inspire me with foolish love.
Key lime pie, your green filling makes me inept.
Flaky crust is what I lust.
Your fresh lime scent is a must.
Take me with coffee, never with tea.
You're the pie that pleases me!
People gawk "Is that pie green?"
Ask for a bite - "Fuck you, I'm mean."
Key lime pie - cheapest hooker I've ever had.
Key lime pie. Last slice gleaming, if you're out I'm mad.
Key lime pie. Poke fun and laugh and jest.
Key lime pie. Don't bother me, digest key lime pie.back to top
