Complication 01:44
I don't need another complication I don't need another restless sleep I just need a goddamn vacation From the pain you cause to me I don't know if I am lost or lonely I don't know if I'm finally at peace I just know this is my one and only Opportunity for release I don't need another complication I don't need another restless sleep I just need a goddamn vacation From the pain you cause to me I don't think that I forgot myself yet I don't think that I should have to submit I just think that I need to tell myself to get Over all my fucking shit I don't need another complication I don't need another restless sleep I just need a goddamn vacation From the pain you cause to me

Colander 02:51
Yeah, I don't like the one you bought for me 'Cause it doesn't match the kitchen's color scheme But your thoughtfulness is sweet, yeah Yeah, I don't like the one you bought for me 'Cause it doesn't match the kitchen's color scheme But your thoughtfulness is sweet, yeah It's not that I don't like that green But I mostly care about utility But since you took the time to ask me I must admit it's rather weak, yeah Yeah, I don't like the one you bought for me 'Cause it doesn't match the kitchen's color scheme But your thoughtfulness is sweet, yeah Yeah, I don't like the one you bought for me 'Cause it doesn't match the kitchen's color scheme But your thoughtfulness is sweet, yeah Red one-handed is the way That I wash my grapes every day And no that's not a gentle play on words It's definitely an innuendo that you heard, yeah Yeah, I don't like the one you bought for me 'Cause it doesn't match the kitchen's color scheme But your thoughtfulness is sweet, yeah Yeah, I don't like the one you bought for me 'Cause it doesn't match the kitchen's color scheme But your thoughtfulness is sweet, yeah
4.
Lando 02:49
Lando don't you know that you Can show me the galaxy You call the shots and that is clear 'Cause you're the smoothest mother fucker in Bespin's upper atmosphere You might speak the lies that I want to believe But I bet you got a skifter up your sleeve Sling some Tibanna gas or mine a mineral But one day you're gonna be a general Lando don't you know that you Can show me the galaxy You play the game and show no fear 'Cause you're the smoothest mother fucker in Bespin's upper atmosphere You might present the prize that I want to achieve But it's just the bait to lure me in the web you weave Before I know it I'll be working for you Because everything I've heard about you is true Lando don't you know that you Can show me the galaxy You're shady it's true but you're also sincere 'Cause you're the smoothest mother fucker in Bespin's upper atmosphere
5.
When the sun shines Never reaches deep inside Shadows push away The light that slowly dies What will be will be Regardless of my lies What will be will be It's suffering time It's suffering time It's suffering time

Tantrum 01:23
No Why I Cry I'M SICK OF MY ANGER THIS FURY I'M IN DANGER I'M SICK OF THIS CYCLE I'M JUST A FUCKING PSYCHO Right? I don't want to fight I can't see the light And everything inside of my mind isn't right Well I can become anything you like As long as I can stay here tonight Why Won't I Die I'M SICK OF MY ANGER THIS FURY I'M IN DANGER I'M SICK OF THIS CYCLE I'M JUST A FUCKING PSYCHO Right? I don't want to fight I can't see the light And everything inside of my mind isn't right Well I can become anything you like As long as I can stay here tonight
9.
Stay 02:11
You should take a break today We can always work after You should hear the things you say Maybe it would cause more laughter WHAT IF EVERYTHING JUST UP AND DISAPPEARS? WOULD YOU HOLD ON TO THOUGHTS OF LOVE OR THOSE OF FEAR? WHAT IF EVERYTHING JUST UP AND BLEW AWAY? WOULD YOU STAY? You should make your mark today So we can always remember You should wake me up to play We can sleep when we are dead WHAT IF EVERYTHING JUST UP AND DISAPPEARS? WOULD YOU HOLD ON TO THOUGHTS OF LOVE OR THOSE OF FEAR? WHAT IF EVERYTHING JUST UP AND BLEW AWAY? WOULD YOU STAY?

10 songs down and 20 to go Then we draw the curtain on the song-a-day show I've tried so hard and come so far I bring this music straight from the heart Even though the mean guy gets in the way He's a part of me so it's really okay The important thing to focus on, for me Is being on this personal journey WELL, YOU LOST 40 POUNDS AND GAINED 20 BACK IS YOUR PERSONAL JOURNEY JUST TO STAY FAT? WHY THE FUCK DO YOU ALWAYS GET TO START I'M TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT YOUR HEART Yes I often get to start the verse That's because I try to pleasant at first You're always screaming and yelling a lot And you interrupt me like a freakin' gunshot SHUT YOUR GOD DAMN FACE I WILL PUT YOU IN YOUR PLACE YOU MAY HAVE DROPPED A CATCHY RAP BUT NOW I'M BACK SO TAKE A NAP YOU WON'T MAKE IT OUT THIS TIME SONG-A-DAY IS OUT OF RHYMES EMPTY DREAMS THAT GOD FORBIDS YOU CAN'T EVEN PROTECT YOUR KIDS
12.
Shell 03:58
YOU'RE NOT THE PERSON YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE ADDICTED TO THE PRAISE AND COMFORT THAT YOU NEED TO BREATHE YOU'LL WASTE AWAY TO NOTHING I'M THE PROOF YOU NEED TO SEE YOU'RE JUST AN EMPTY SHELL OF WHO YOU USED TO BE I'm no better We're both garbage floating on the river We're both takers drowning givers I know you agree I'm no better I am covered in debris from other Structures I've collapsed on brothers I'm trying to make you see YOU'RE NOT THE PERSON YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE ADDICTED TO THE PRAISE AND COMFORT THAT YOU NEED TO BREATHE YOU'LL WASTE AWAY TO NOTHING I'M THE PROOF YOU NEED TO SEE YOU'RE JUST AN EMPTY SHELL OF WHO YOU USED TO BE I'm no better We're both hollow like the bones of birds We're both lemmings with the herd I know you agree I'm no better I am covered in decrees from other Promises I broke to mothers I'm trying to make you see YOU'RE NOT THE PERSON YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE ADDICTED TO THE PRAISE AND COMFORT THAT YOU NEED TO BREATHE YOU'LL WASTE AWAY TO NOTHING I'M THE PROOF YOU NEED TO SEE YOU'RE JUST AN EMPTY SHELL OF WHO YOU USED TO BE I'm no better We're both wasting time depleting effort We're both steeped in false endeavors I know you agree I'm no better I am coated with the shame from other Memories I want to smother I'm trying to make you see YOU'RE NOT THE PERSON YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE ADDICTED TO THE PRAISE AND COMFORT THAT YOU NEED TO BREATHE YOU'LL WASTE AWAY TO NOTHING I'M THE PROOF YOU NEED TO SEE I'M JUST AN EMPTY SHELL OF WHO I USED TO BE

AND MOMMA I HOPE YOU KNOW IT'S TRUE I'M DOING THE BEST I CAN WITH ALL THE THINGS THAT I LEARNED FROM YOU I'LL ALWAYS TAKE CARE OF YOU AS LONG AS I'M YOUR FAVORITE So you better answer my calls And send me money when I need it If you want me to put you in a good home Say you love me and mean it AND MOMMA WHAT WOULD I DO WITHOUT YOU?

Gold are the Beeches in Ardaranel The summers there bring joy to me The leaves in autumn too glorious to tell But ever my thoughts seek the sea. Even now it calls with perpetual voice. Farther I drift from grass and tree, The Doom of elves, the age-old choice: Stay or sail to Faerie. The memory of stars upon the sea The ancient folk cannot suppress. It sings to me of High Faerie, The Havens where my heart doth rest. For sun and grass and forest glade Long have been my heart's content, But all these lands grow pale and fade As elves sing their sad lament. For the thought of stars upon the sea I am unable to suppress. It speaks to me of Fair Faerie. The Havens where my heart doth rest.

Razormouth 03:26
Leaning back, eyes closed Will it swallow me And tear the skin off The hollow space that comforts me I suffocate underneath The weight of a Broken daughter of the Tribe that left it's mark on me Would you wait on the shore While my ship sinks Deep below the surface Of my enemy I can relate to the lies We told ourselves When we pretended That your mouth was clean VASSAL OF SIN YOU PULLED ME IN YOUR TEETH DO BREAK MY SKIN Blackened heart, eyes closed Will it shadow me And burn the cheer off The emptiness that colors me Degenerate underneath The heft of a Fractured daughter with an Id that now has riven me VASSAL OF SIN YOU PULLED ME IN YOUR TEETH DO BREAK MY SKIN VASSAL OF SIN YOU PULLED ME IN YOUR TEETH DO BREAK MY SKIN
17.
I am a normal man Feeding on the hate of the blind I am a frightened man Wondering what the people will find I'VE GOT NEGATIVE BLOOD RUNNING THROUGH MY DARKENED SOUL WORTHLESS NARCISSISTIC MOTHER FUCK I am a normal man Feeding on the hate of the blind I am a frightened man Wondering what the people will find I'VE GOT NEGATIVE BLOOD RUNNING THROUGH MY BLACKENED SOUL WORTHLESS NARCISSISTIC MOTHER FUCK I'VE GOT NEGATIVE BLOOD WORTHLESS NARCISSISTIC MOTHER FUCK
18.
I woke up this morning Fell out of my bed From what I've seen so far This day ain't going too well yet I came down the stairs To get some Cheerios We're all out, but that's okay There ain't no milk anyway AND I KNOW YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME BUT HERE YOU'VE GOT TO SEE ME I KNOW IT SEEMS SO HARD BUT YOU'LL JUST HAVE TO FIND A WAY I woke up this morning Fell out of my bed From what I've seen so far This day ain't going too well This day ain't going too well This day ain't going too well yet
19.
Cool 02:16
I sleep all day til football practice Don't need a job, Dad gives me money I'm too good for drugs But I'll drink myself until I'm dead Just because it's cool I'm the biggest jerk when I'm out somewhere Beat up young kids to prove myself Don't need to treat my girl right Cause my friends might think I'm a loser And that just wouldn't be cool Got the prettiest girl in school on my arm Got the coolest friends in school at my side Talk about people behind their backs So others won't think I'm a sissy 'Cause I'm cool Learned how to play the guitar Because I saw it on MTV And my girlfriend thinks that it's cool I've got the coolest car My hair is bitchin'; my threads are awesome I'm so cool I put down the dorks and weirdos I make fun of everyone I even hate my parents 'cause it's cool Yeah I'm cool Yeah I'm cool Like everyone else
20.
Take Me Away 03:59
I met a girl the other day She took one look at me And walked the other way I met a girlfriend just like you I know she's pretty cool But she's nothing like you Well, I'd know if it wasn't for you AND WHAT YOU THINK OF ME ISN'T HALF AS BAD AS WHAT YOU SEE YOU LEFT ME LYING ON THE GROUND LET'S GO GET STONED AND WATCH THE CLOUDS TAKE ME AWAY I found some time the other day I wasted all of it And slept the morning away I found a purpose without you I know I'm pretty cool But I'm nothing like you Well, I'd be happy if it wasn't for you AND WHAT YOU THINK OF ME ISN'T HALF AS BAD AS WHAT YOU SEE YOU LEFT ME LYING ON THE GROUND LET'S GO GET STONED AND WATCH THE CLOUDS TAKE ME AWAY I met a girl the other day She took one look at me And walked the other way I met a girlfriend just like you I know she's pretty cool But she's nothing like you Well, I'd know if it wasn't for you AND WHAT YOU THINK OF ME ISN'T HALF AS BAD AS WHAT YOU SEE YOU LEFT ME LYING ON THE GROUND LET'S GO GET STONED AND WATCH THE CLOUDS TAKE ME AWAY
21.
20 songs down and 10 to go YOU DON'T HAVE A PRAYER YOU'RE WEAK AND THIS YOU KNOW You say that a lot but you're always wrong COME ON, YOU JUST RECORDED FOUR HIGH SCHOOL SONGS Those songs are awesome. They're the birth of our sound YOU KNOW WE CAN DO BETTER; STOP FUCKING AROUND Alright, let's do it. It's time to admit The fear I possess makes me want to submit AND THAT'S WHY I COME IN AND WRECK SOME SHIT You're trying to inspire me so I won't quit AND YOUR PATIENT MINDFULNESS MAKES ME LESS OF A DICK So wait, you're not really after my kids? NO! I'M TRYING TO MAKE YOU REALIZE - The power within - YOU NEED YOUR HATE And your love AND PAIN And also your heart to make a difference, to live TODAY IS WHEN YOU START Don't ever be afraid to be who you are Don't be afraid Don't wait 'til it's too late to be who you are Don't wait. Start today Don't fool yourself you're perfect just as you are Don't wait. Don't delay Don't try and don't pretend just love who you are
22.
Unabashed 02:16
Seeing your frown Knowing you're down Wishing you and I were still messing around Waves of your bliss Starts with a kiss Never thought that you and I would end up like this THE HARDEST VOYAGE IS THE ONE WE DELAY THE BIGGEST FEET WILL ALWAYS GET IN OUR WAY WHEN THEY START WALKING BACK ALL THEIR CLAIMS THEY'LL REALIZE THAT YOU AND I ARE ONE IN THE SAME I'm clean and prepared And nobody cared The hardest choice to make is what emotion to wear Won't you give in? You're sneaking a grin Nothing feels quite as good as unabashed sin THE HARDEST VOYAGE IS THE ONE WE DELAY THE BIGGEST FEET WILL ALWAYS GET IN OUR WAY WHEN THEY START WALKING BACK ALL THEIR CLAIMS THEY'LL REALIZE THAT YOU AND I ARE ONE IN THE SAME

Whoa, damn Whoa, damn You look fierce today I like the way you sway And your confidence Is like a bold bouquet You can feel my praise And now you meet my gaze As you look in my eyes You're gonna hear me saying WHOA... I FEEL WEAK IN THE KNEES BECAUSE THE POWER OF YOUR PRESENCE IS EFFECTING ME, I SAY WHOA... DO WITH ME WHAT YOU WILL BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT NEEDS THAT I'M PREPARED TO FILL Whoa, damn Whoa, damn You sound good today I like the things you say And your harmonious voice Is a robust bouquet And your redolence Is stimulating me But Mutual respect Is most seductive to me, I say WHOA... I FEEL WEAK IN THE KNEES BECAUSE THE POWER OF YOUR PRESENCE IS EFFECTING ME, I SAY WHOA... DO WITH ME WHAT YOU WILL BECAUSE YOU'VE GOT NEEDS THAT I'M PREPARED TO FILL

OJIBWE... OJIBWE, HOW WE SAY CANADIAN SNOW GOOSE AND IT'S OKAY Wawa, you always know just what I need I can always count on you to pleasure me Superstore or Legacy When I'm inside you I feel free Sometimes beer sometimes the lottery But always a smile and pleasantries OJIBWE... OJIBWE... OJIBWE, HOW WE SAY CANADIAN SNOW GOOSE AND IT'S OKAY I got the Wawa in my sights I know it's gonna be a hoagie night Jump in my ride and drive full throttle You gotta "Buy Health By The Bottle"

I know you want to believe that I'm a better man I twist up all of your words and make a better plan I won't relent I don't belong Just ask yourself Shouldn't you depend on someone else?

Floorboards 02:52
It's an old house It gets warm in the summer Gets cold in the winter time It's an old house But the energy can't be beat Yeah, It's an old house That's why I don't mind That the floorboards are moving under my feet Yeah the floorboards are moving under my feet Yeah, it's an old house It gets warm in the summer Gets cold in the winter time 'Cuz It's an old house But the energy can't be beat It's an old house That's why I don't mind That the floorboards are moving under my feet Yeah the floorboards are moving under my feet Yeah the floorboards are moving under my feet 'Cuz It's an old house The energy can't be beat Yeah, It's an old house And the floorboards are moving under my feet Yeah the floorboards are moving under my feet 'Cuz It's an old house The energy can't be beat The floorboards are moving under my feet

Sigh No More 01:43
Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more. Men were deceivers ever, One foot in sea, and one on shore, To one thing constant never. Then sigh not so, but let them go, And be you blithe and bonny, Converting all your sounds of woe Into hey nonny, nonny. Sing no more ditties, sing no more Of dumps so dull and heavy. The fraud of men was ever so Since summer first was leafy. Then sigh not so, but let them go, And be you blithe and bonny, Converting all your sounds of woe Into hey, nonny, nonny.
30.
I wasn't even thinking about you You hadn't even crossed my mind Then you came and disliked Every song I put online I wasn't planning on writing a song about you This is the definition of self-fulling prophecy coming TRUE Nobody will know it's about you Yeah, I won't tell a soul I think it's funny if people don't know Yeah, they don't know you I think it's important for people Not to have to know you I don't think it's a problem for me But it always has been for YOU I don't care I don't care I don't care at all Thanks for the views Thanks for the views I got 31 from you My music is honest My music is free My music is mine It's just for me Oh yeah, just for me Oh yeah, just for me
31.
I'm Done 23:52
Here we are again Standing at the end Feeling relieved Finally putting down the pen I've been hardwiring my brain For creativity, Expanding neoteric locution, And sonic motivity BUT I'M DONE, YEAH I'M DONE I KNOW I'VE SAID IT MORE THAN ONCE BUT I'M DONE, YEAH I'M DONE THIS YEAR FUCKING KICKED MY ASS SO I'M DONE EVEN THOUGH I LOVE IT YES IT'S TRUE I CAN'T KEEP DOING THIS SO I'M THROUGH Here we are again The second verse my friend Where it gets a little less Original and doesn't always rhyme Here's where I change a few words That I sang in the first verse Still the same intent A lazy trick but it could be worse BECAUSE I'M DONE, YEAH I'M DONE I KNOW I'VE SAID IT MORE THAN ONCE BUT I'M DONE, YEAH I'M DONE THIS YEAR FUCKING KICKED MY ASS SO I'M DONE EVEN THOUGH I LOVE IT YES IT'S TRUE I CAN'T KEEP DOING THIS SO I'M THROUGH Here we are again The final verse my friend Where it gets a little slower And quieter until the end I may repeat the chorus Two times; perhaps just one But if I'm going for max impact I'll just say I'm done
