Track Name: things to do
Sit on my ass, twiddle my thumbs, swing my big bat, look for leftovers It's not you, I've got things to do Stare outside the windows, think about vacations, Search for deleted scenes on my DVD's
Track Name: numbers, messages
Like a cake in my hand like a memory
Black and white pictures mean more to me
An image inside my head I can't forget,
Little ants lifting pieces of their dead friends
I'm losing sleep again
I'm stressed out again, I'm losing sleep again,
Depressed and down again
With a pen in my hand I try to write down
Numbers, messages, something with meaning
And while I lay here flat on my back,
I close my eyes until things come to me
Track Name: old song
I wish that time would stop or at least slow down for me
As dust builds up around, why am I so unhappy?
I'll never do what I've been told
No I won't do, what i've been told
the sand slips through my hands
and falls onto the floor
the small things swept underneath are hidden infinitely
and all miles i've driven in the days when i felt lost
and all the seconds wasted as i tried to keep from aging
are gone, gone, all gone...
Track Name: happy now
Are you happy now that I've lost my mind?
Are you happy now that you've pushed my buttons?
No thanks to you I'm not as happy
Are you satisfied with things have changed?
Are you happy now, things won't be the same
No thanks to you, I'm not as happy
no thanks to you, I'm not as happy
Track Name: kresge day
What's up? how's it going?
I'm good. How weird that I bumped into you
I think I'm going insane Remember we shared a balloon right after we dosed in my room. I think I'm going insane.
And now I look back on kresge day, how things got crazy on kresge day Tracers and vitamin c, had a steak, baked potatoes again, and laughed how we both got lemonade went back into my room again, hooked up with all of our friends and then things never seemed the same again I think I'm going insane And now I smile back on kresge day I think it started on kresge day How things got crazy on kresge day
Track Name: vent
Stop, relax, I know you're mad, don't blame it all on me
Don't take it out on me
Step up and deal
Get off your knees, it takes a toll on me
Track Name: meathead
I'll push you down 'cause I'm a meathead
and move my way up to the front with all my friends
I drive a truck with my girlfriend
I'll run you off the road so I can hear her laugh
I'm a jerk and I'm stupid
I shaved my head and got tattoos to be unique

And when you see me in the halls
You better leave space for my arms
And if you step into my sight
I'll bully you into the walls

Get out of my way 'cause I'm a meathead
My big red neck is bigger than my empty head

And I'm obsessed with my body
I see reflections of myself and then I'll flex
And in the end, I'll still be smiling
cause in a world where might makes right
I'll still be standing
And when you see me in the halls
You better leave space for my arms
And if you step into my sight
I'll bully you into the walls

Cause I'm a meathead, I'm a meathead
Meat, meat, meat, meat, meat, meathead
Track Name: 505
Wouldn't it be just like me to stay in bed all day
Sleepy, TV, would make me feel happy

Wouldn't it be just like me
to say that I hate red
Weird dreams it seems to wipe the bridge away

As I feel blue I say good bye
Why me I cry
Oh me oh my

As I feel new
I wipe my tears and hum a happy tune
Track Name: talk about today
It's not about suicide
And it's not about any days off
Why do you hate all my friends
And make fun of the things that I say

You think that you know it all
Too bad everyone thinks that you're wrong
You always tend to offend
and now all of your friends are all gone

Here he comes
That's him
Still living in his glory days
Oh no that's him
Still talking about his SAT's
Oh no, the one
That thought that he would still be king

So hey
Talk about today
Cause yesterday is gone
What'd you do today
Cause yesterday is gone
Track Name: perfect
setting up yourself for disappointment
looking for the perfect friends
while nobody fulfills the expectations
cuz everybody else feels like they're dumb
and i
think that i
no i know i
don't know why
no i know why
i don't like you
cuz you're perfect
no matter what you do
you're so perfect
everybody likes you
cuz you're so perfect
no matter what you do
you're so perfect
everybody likes you
all you ever do is point your finger
tell me 'bout a time you took the blame
i never heard you say that you were sorry
maybe cuz you never make mistakes
Track Name: Calling In Sick
Hit the snooze and sleep I'm calling in sick
Fake my cough and smile I'm calling in sick
Lay here for a while and make up my mind
Lick my tabs it's time to go on a trip

Because I'm gonna call in sick,
I'm gonna call in sick today
Why don't you call in sick today
And we can go outside and play

Cause even though I like my job
I think the people there are lame
And even though I won't get paid
I'm gonna call in anyway

Jolynn's really nice, but Jim is a prick
Sometimes Tommy's cool, and Missy's OK
Cassie needs a brain, I think she's insane
Leon wants to leave and Maegan's the same

Because I'm gonna call in sick,
I'm gonna call in sick today
Why don't you call in sick today
And we can go outside and play
Track Name: all i never
All I never wanted to be
was a superstar
lavish life and luxury cars
holes in my arms
Shiny things have lost their appeal
I'm into dull
dollar bills and sleeping pills
with alcohol
put a bullet into my head
hide my body under your bed
and turn the lights out

cigarettes in vending machines
like movie stars
packaging with candy appeal
without the scars
all i never wanted to be
was a superstar
i was always happy to be
the stupid one around
pick me up from off of your floor
shove me in and lock up the doors
and turn the lights out
