I Was Better Off

From my mouth
Now more and more everyday
Words that have nothing to say
Well, I'll find something someday

I thought that I was better off
I was wrong
I am where I don't belong
In a flash I am gone, to return when the sun shines again

Oh, my God
Words that seem so out of place
I wish you'd get out of my face
Well, I'll find something someday

I thought that I was better off
I was wrong
I am where I don't belong
In a flash I am gone, to return when the sun shines again

I thought that I was better off
I was wrong
I am where I don't belong
In a flash I am gone, to return when the sun shines again
To return when the sun shines again

So I Fall Again

I can't say if this feeling coming over me is real
But I know it's something you can't steal
So I'll buy another problem to approach
Sell a virgin lie that can't be touched

So I'll fall again
So I'll fall again
So I'll break through this rotten piece of wood again

I can't say if this here f*cking subject should be dropped
But I know it's something you can't stop
So I'll buy another pick-up line and sigh
And pretend that everything is all right

So I'll fall again
So I'll fall again
So I'll break through this rotten piece of wood again

So I'll break through this rotten piece of wood
So I'll break through this rotten piece of wood
So I'll break through this rotten piece of wood again

So I'll fall again
So I'll fall again
So I'll break through this rotten piece of wood again

Recently Distressed
Dear Recently Distressed,
I am sorry to inform you that I lost your kid's address. You see my wings are on the fritz, I can't even get up off the ground. I'm really sorry for this mess 'cause it all came crashing down. Can I remember? Someone please tell me how to do my job or I'm out of work, speaking frankly you'll be out of luck.

Dear Recently Distressed,

Can't Take It
Something strange
Somehow I get the feeling I'm
Where everyone knows your name
It's not much different but
It's surely not the same
You'll find peace in knowing now
I'm so sick and tired of hearing myself
Believe me I never guessed you
Had one up your sleeve - Well, there I go
So smile you've done your part
But I'm waiting for someone to say
"I can't take it anymore" yeah
"Can't take it anymore" yeah
What's so wrong with being sad?
Left alone I was stuck to go over
All the things that I've done wrong
Sure, I was stuck in a hole
But now we've got a song
After all the love is gone
Where'd you get off saying
It's not so lame
We've had it different
And I know we're not the same
Well, there I go
So smile you've done your part
But I'm waiting for someone to say
"I can't take it anymore" yeah
"Can't take it anymore" yeah
What's so wrong with being sad?
So smile you've done your part
But I'm waiting for someone to say
"I can't take it anymore" yeah
"Can't take it anymore" yeah
What's so wrong with being sad?
Can't take it anymore
What's so wrong with being sad?
Yeah

The Local Black and Red

Sitting in your room
Drinking your perfume
Wondering which day of the week I'll die on

Now I'm lying in your bed
Unscrewing your head
Trying to figure out what's wrong inside
So you don't hate yourself tonight, yeah

So now you fall asleep
Inside a tambourine
Next to broken headphones and your high school yearbook
I wrote on the final page:
"Wish I could've stayed around to watch the last band play."
Hey, hey, hey
I heard they just broke up yesterday

Frequenting the local black and red
And how that band played you really had to stare
You'd hardly be aware that you were blinking
You'd hardly be aware that you were blinking, yeah

Frequenting the local black and red
And how that band played you really had to stare
You'd hardly be aware that you were blinking
You'd hardly be aware that you were blinking, yeah

Don't Get Down

I want to live on the moon
Never see a human again
And when the Earth explodes
I'll light a candle for my dead best friends

I don't enjoy this place
My best friends are so mean

I look up to the sky when I am sad
'cause the planets don't get down on me
I just want to fall asleep

I want to live on the moon
Never see a human again
And as the Earth explodes
I'll light that candle for my dead best friends

I look up to the sky when I am sad
'cause the planets don't get down on me
I just want to fall asleep and dream of a place that's warm
I just want to fall asleep and dream of a place that's warm
Oh, yeah

I look up to the sky when I am sad
'cause the planets don't get down on me

Ooh...

Dying of Silence

So as I stand here dying of silence tonight
The quiet spell you slung at the ceiling fan
It will return again
Why?
I ask myself sometimes
Dine on small after school
Why?
I ask myself sometimes
So as the mood gets darker and darker tonight
Can't help but feel a little uncomfortable, alright?
It will return again
Why?
I ask myself sometimes
Dine on small talk after school
Why? (why?)
Why? (why?)
Why? (why?)
I ask myself sometimes
Why?
Why?
Why?

Down in a Second

Can I find a place of solace to unscale?
Should i take a social climb? Should I fail?
Have we gathered here to buzz or just to roach?
Have I bought another problem to approach?

If you want to leave me
If you want to just throw me away
I'll be down in a second
I'll be down in a second

How come now it seems that you no longer care?
How can I live a life that seems no longer fair?
Have we noticed yet that this is not a game?
Have I bought a fast way to a claim to fame?

If you want to leave me
If you want to just throw me away
I'll be down in a second
I'll be down in a second

If you want to leave me
If you want to just throw me away
I'll be down in a second
I'll be down in a second

If you want to leave me
If you want to just throw me away
I'll be down in a second
I'll be down in a second

Lisa (Does it Hurt You?)

Behind the bleachers
I'll tell you a secret
Of locker room dreams

Lunchbox Angel
Will you tell me your story?
Will you go with me?

Does it hurt you, does it pain you
to say the words that mean so much to me
Does it hurt you, does it pain you
or did you lock it up to hide away

We are the laziest people there could be
For we only wrote one verse
But I asked Jacques what I should put in place of this
He said just leave it (oh, and one more thing)

Does it hurt you, does it pain you
to say the words that mean so much to me
Does it hurt you, does it pain you
or did you lock it up to hide away (far away)

Does it hurt you, does it pain you
to say the words that mean so much to me
Does it hurt you, does it pain you
or did you lock it up to hide away

Rest Easy

It's all clear, no need for you to fear
Nothing's under the bed tonight
It's all right, no need for you to fright
Nothing's after you tonight

If I pretend that I'm asleep (If I pretend that I'm asleep)
Will that prevent from making me their next meal?

It's all right, no need for you to fright
You've only lost your sense of sight
Rest your head, and dream yourself to bed
Or else I won't sleep well tonight

If I pretend that I'm asleep (If I pretend that I'm asleep)
Will that prevent from making me their next meal?

If I hold out 'till the light of day
Will they disintegrate away? Far away

Sleep Machine

3:15 AM (TV is on)

Some things melt away
As night dissolves to day
Some things only stay
Silent darkness slowly kills me

Ooh...
Ooh...

I turn to you, and stir your blank expression
You're the one for me
Help me get to sleep (nighty night good night)
Something isn't right
Seems that every night, I need you

More and more, you take me away
More and more, I need you to stay
More and more, distract me from the instant loss of light
More and more, I need you tonight

Come, let's go for a while
And pretend, you're mine for a while
Come, let's go...Yeah, yeah

More and more, you take me away
More and more, I need you to stay
More and more, distract me from the instant loss of light
More and more, I need you tonight

Good night
