Track Name: Bipolar
I like to make a mockery
Of my friends!
Sometimes I think of them
And we make amends

Oh I love it
I love it
I love it
I love it
I hate it…

I want to live outside
And dig up the dirt
Then you could look at me
Because you’re disturbed

Oh you love it
You love it
I’m broken
And cold
But I love it!

Living off the rocks and grass
Living like a psychopath

Living off the shrubs and trees
Mother won’t get close to me!

I like to make a mockery
Of my love!
I look to them
And then to my god above

Oh, they love it
They love it
They love it
They love it
They hate it!

And when I do
I take to flight with the birds
I’m all alone but somewhere
I’ve lost my nerve
Oh, you’re certain?
I’m sorry
You’re here but
It’s awfully
Alarming!

Living off the rocks and grass,
What a fucking psychopath!

Living off the shrubs and trees
Where were you
At 23?

Oh, they hate it!

Oh, there…

I like to make a mockery of my friends!
I like to make a mockery of my friends!
I like to make a mockery of my friends!
I like to make a mockery of my friends!
Oh, they hate it!
Track Name: Salmonella
I just lost my best friend
To salmonella
He put up a good fight
I think they killed him

One thing I can’t accept:
I’ll never see him again

And I am coming to terms
With mother’s aging
She looks nothing the same
As when she made me

It’s a valid excuse
But an excuse all the same

And maybe someday my son
And your daughter will find love
And have more sons and daughters
That overdose on drugs
And we’ll never know
We’ll never know

I just lost a good friend
To chronic aging
He was doing okay
I swear it slayed me

One thing I can’t get past:
He’ll never walk on my grave

And I am thinking along
The lines you wrote then
I have lived out my life
And passed my welcome

Maybe it’s time to go
But I will never give way

And maybe someday my son
And your daughter will hook up
On ugly basement couches
Where we overdosed on drugs
But they’ll never know
They’ll never know
They cannot know!
They cannot know!

I just lost my best friend to salmonella!
I just lost my best friend to salmonella!
I just lost my best friend to salmonella!
He was doing okay, they fucking killed him!
Track Name: Half Meant It
What do you think about the fly
That’s taken up his residency
On your windowsill?

Does it keep you on your toes
Does it help you hold a job
All along
Call your mom
There is something that she wants

What do you think about the
argument that keeps you up
at night because your walls are thin?

Are you hoping that they move,
Are you wishing that they had a friend?
And confidant

So many people here will see what they wanna see
I’m on the alternate
They come along and kill me

So many people here will hear what they wanna hear
It’s so impossible
That happening’s my worst fear

What do you think about the negatives
That haunt the backdrop of your lazy photographs?
Are they good enough to sell
Are they good enough to last
Oh my god
Things are swell
Have you heard about the past?

I’ve been escaping somewhere
Close to what you’ve said to me, I swore it’s true
for many years

I’m a thousand yards away
But I’m entering a lazy sphere

So many people here will see what’s in front of them
And never question it
Because it’s in their thoughts again

So many people here will hear what they want to hear
I’m all alone
Because it’s honestly my worst fear

American! American!
American! Ameri-can-I-start-again?

American! American!
American! Ameri-can-you-see-the-end?

American! American!
American! Ameri-can-I-start-again?

American! American!
Oh, can you see the end?
Track Name: Boiler Room
A pretty vacant house
In a newborn vacant neighborhood
In spite of all I’ve found I’m sure
I’m better off alone

I’m scared that you will disagree!
I’m scared of all you’ve done to me!
I often find myself pacing around my house alone

Everyone around you’s running late
Can’t a man my age just get a break?

I’m already a centerpiece
Let me in your company
I’m awfully sad that you’re away
But surely you are fine

I’m scared that you won’t find a home!
I’m scared that you will go alone!
I often find my mind racing around my skull alone

Everyone around you can’t relate, oh
Late, oh
Can’t they understand they’re in your way, oh?
Way, oh
I am such a helpful man, I thought so
Thought so
Why on earth would everybody say no?

I swam underwater
For ten miles
To see you

I met your son
And your daughter
Can’t stand you

I have some thoughts
Of my own
That won’t reach you

I have some thoughts of my own...
Track Name: What Happened
It’s nights like these
I settle down
And think my parents might be right
I probably shouldn’t drink
I probably shouldn’t smoke,
Cause I don’t wanna die!

Oh and it hurts to live a lie
And so you don’t, so you don’t
But it hurts much more to die!
And so you won’t, so won’t
Does it suck to be alive?
I wouldn’t know
Yeah I don’t know
I don’t know

It’s days like these
I take it down a notch
And look into the past
I’m sending you a message
Halfway round the world
By looking through the glass

Oh and it hurts so much to breathe
And so you don’t, so you don’t
And it hurts so much to dream
And so you won’t so you won’t
When it hurts to watch TV
That’s when you know
When you know
When you know

What happened?

It’s nights like these
I settle down
And think my parents might be right
I probably shouldn’t live my life
In fact I might be better off inside

Oh and it hurts to see the end
And so you can’t, so you don’t
And I thought you were my friend
But that’s alright, I just don’t know
And I want to see you die somehow
You’re better off alone
Off alone!
Track Name: Martyr
You’ve done a good job
Fucking up all but the simplest problems
You don’t know how much I love you
You don’t know how much I
Want to be you

Even God himself
God himself got into trouble sometimes
You don’t know how much I hate you
You don’t know how much I
Want to kill you

Oh I am the wounded son of a martyr
Who lost his arms in battle
His friends they came back for him
They took his limbs
And gave them to one more deserving
It was in their eyes
A noble deed
At least they saved one of the two
But my father died
Without his right hand,
And now he can’t shake with the devil

Even you and I
You and I got into trouble sometimes
You don’t know how much I love you
You don’t know how much I
Want to save you

Oh I am the wounded son of a martyr
Who lost his arms in battle
His friends they came back for him
They took his limbs
And gave them to one more deserving
It was in their eyes
A noble deed
At least they saved one of the two
But my father died
Without his right hand,
And now he can’t shake with the devil

Run away, cause people run away!
People always run from battle

Run away, we’ll never be the same!
We’ll never be the same
Without you!

Run away, we’ll never run away!
We’ll never run away from battle

Run away, we’ll never be the same!
We’ll never be the same
Without you!

Run!

We’ll never be the same
Without you!

We’ll never be the same
Without you!

Fuck!
