Track Name: Soundwaves
I was swallowed by an ocean
with no land that I could see
and the waves that crashed on my head
didn't seem to bother me
no no
no no

The ocean was made from bodies
That all seemed to cry out
Well I could see there faces
While I heard them shout
no no
no no

The waves were violently thrashing
As the sky opened up
And I could see them crashing
while I interrupt
this commotion
this commotion

Now I slip back to darkness
Let the waves cover me
Now I'm completely submerged
And it's getting hear to breath
no no
no no

And I'm drowning
I'm drowning
I'm drowning
I'm drowning

And there's no place
I'd rather be

Yeah there's no place
I'd rather be
no no
no no
Track Name: Bum Talk
It's been a long time since I've been to school
May I please have a pass to the bathroom
I said that perverts got his eyezzz
on you

I said the bitch better shut her mouth up
Said the bitch better shut her mouth up
Said the bitch better shut her mouth up
Said the bitch better shut her mouth up

do do do do do do do

It's been a long time since I've been to school
May I please have a pass to the bathroom
I said that perverts got his eyezzz
On you
Soo true

I said the bitch better shut her mouth up
Said the bitch better shut her mouth up
Said the bitch better shut her mouth up
Said the bitch better shut her mouth up

SHUT UP

I said the bitch better shut her mouth up
Said the bitch better shut her mouth up
Said the bitch better shut her mouth up
Said the bitch better shut her mouth up

Shut her mouth up
Shut her mouth up
Shut her mouth up
Shut her mouth up
Shut her mouth up
Shut her mouth up
Shut her mouth up
Shut her mouth up

SHUT UP
Track Name: Mood Ring
Light brings life to my dead eyes
wake up in a bad mood
from a dream about the end of the world
breath in the stale air
exhale the nightmares

ba ba ba ba ba ba ba baaaa
ba ba ba ba ba ba ba baaaa
ba ba ba ba ba ba ba baaaa
ba ba ba ba ba ba ba baaaa
ba ba ba ba ba ba ba baaaa
ba ba ba ba ba ba ba baaaa

I saw you hit your
I think you should where a helmet
and I saw that ant on the hill
and I saw that dirt in his mouth
and I don't know why you did it
I don't know the rhyme nor the reason
watch out for that lawnmower
watch out for that lawnmower

Life is what it is
You get what you give

Life is what it is
you get what you give
you get nothing in the end

Life is what it is
you get what you give
you get nothing in the end
Track Name: Downhill
1234!

You said that you were dying young
Of some disease that know one
Had ever heard of
Said that it goes to slow and that it should hurry up
And I said, "no no no!"

I think its time that you pretend
That those magazine covers are gone
And that's the end
Burned in all your glory and your gone like Dave Koresh
And I said, "no no no!"

So long to all the losers

We're going downhill from here
We're going downhill from here
We're going downhill from here
We're going downhill from here

Sha la la la la
Track Name: Debbie
I See your face
When I close my eyes
And it keeps me up
In the dead of night
And the reds and blues
of the northern sky
Keep me thinking of
How it feels to die

My words fall
From my mouth
And slowly
Trickle south
I wonder if
I'm asleep
cause its getting hard
to tell life from dreams

I don't see
i don't speak
i don't see
i don't speak
i don't see
i don't speak
i don't see
i don't sleep
Anymore

And I've forgotten how to breath
I don't care
And I've forgotten how to see
I don't care
And I've forgotten how to speak
I don't care
And I've forgotten how to sleep
I don't care
And I've forgotten how to live
I don't care
And I've forgotten that I'm dead
I don't care
Inside
Inside

And I've forgotten that I
And I've forgotten that I
And I've forgotten that I
And I've forgotten that I
that I don't care anymore
Track Name: Lights Go Out
When the lights go out
in our town, in our town

It's a shame you couldn't stay awake
just see those light bulbs break all around
all around

I SAID 1,2,3 LIGHTS GO OUT
SHOOBY DOO WOP, SHOOBY DOO WOP
1,2,3 LIGHTS GO OUT
DON'T DO WHAT HE SAID AT ALL

When the lights go out
I'm gonna go outside
I'm gonna start a fire
gonna start a fire

When the lights go out
Track Name: She's A Dude
I do my best to be alone
I do my best to build a mote
Solitude is on my side
Fire those bodies to the other side

It was a trip
It was a trip
Don't want my summer to ever end
And I'll be back, but I don't know when
YES I'll be back, but I don't know when

I'll be back but I don't know when
These dirty tricks, they are my friends
They make those old downtown shows
seem far away
SO far away
Track Name: Styrofoam
It's cold outside
Why won't you let me in
Is it because I'm tired
Or cause I'm tried within
You set my skin on fire
But leave me cold at heart
I could sketch out your words
Before you even start

Styrofoam

It's cold out side
Why wont you warm me up
Is it because I lied
Or cause I'm closing shut
Go on and skin my hide
Use it to warm yourself
I will not try to hide
I'll just be somewhere else

Styrofoam
Track Name: Dirty Cops
Dirty cops in the neighborhood
Dirty cops in the neighborhood
Takin' out them billy clubs
And shoving it where they think they should

On the corner of the street
On the corner of the street
Some poor kids been getting beat
While the other kids watch him bleed

THEY AIN'T GOOD FO NUTHIN

DIRTY COPS ON THE STREET
Track Name: Ghost Town
I just rolled right into town
I don't know whats up or down
I've been looking all around
And I just can seem to hear a sound

I don't know whats going on
This town is mighty quiet
They might be at church
But I don't buy it

I've been looking for a sign
But it's something I can't find
Now I think that it's the time
To get the hell out of this five and dime

I don't know whats going on
This town is mighty quiet
They might be at church
But I don't buy it

It's a ghost town
It's a ghost town
It's a ghost town
It's a ghost town
Track Name: The Talking Heads Song
Weymouth
You hate David
For what, for what, For what?

Weymouth
You hate David
He speaks in tongues, in tongues in tongues

You met in '77
Sang songs about buildings and food
But now your patience is gone
Now your not in the mood

You don't know what went wrong
You just keep on being mad
It's a heartbreak to everyone of us
It's a heartbreak to Uncle Brad
