Track Name: The High
All day I stare at the TV screen.
Cause I'm afraid to go outside.
I think that there's something really wrong with me.
Cause if I go outside I'll die.

If I pay you some money.
Will you tell me what's wrong with me?
If I give you the money.
Will you tell me what's wrong with me?

It's the chemicals that bring you down.
It's the chemicals that turn your smile upside down.
It's the chemicals. Yeah.
It's the chemicals. Yeah.

Gotta go through the lows to get to the high.
And it's the high that gets you by.
Yeah, it's the high that gets you by.

Track Name: Black Magic Marker
When you drive by do you wave or you wish everyone to the grave?
If we let all the evil in then we let the good side win.
Let the evil in and let the good side win.
Let the evil in.
Let the evil in and let the good side win.
Let the evil in.

Black Magic Marker.
Black Magic Marker.

No one ever seems to give the time of day.
And in the time of need they’ll look the other way.
Let all the evil in and let the good side win.
Let the evil in.
Let the evil in and let the good side win.
Let the evil in.

Black Magic Marker.
Black Magic Marker.

Please pick up the phone. Don’t want to be alone.
You don’t know how good we could be together.
I’ve fallen out of shape.
Can’t really see straight.
I could pull my heart out and give it to you.

Loneliness is next to godliness and if you love me write it on the wall.
I have this marker. Black magic marker. And if you love me write it on the wall.

And my heart has fallen apart.
And my heart has fallen apart.
And my heart has fallen apart.
And my heart has fallen apart.
And my heart has fallen apart.
And my heart has fallen apart.
And my heart has fallen apart.
And my heart has fallen apart.
And my heart has fallen apart.
And my heart has fallen apart.
And my heart has fallen apart.
And my heart has fallen apart.
Track Name: Golden SUV
I see the make-up running down your pretty face.
I see you staring off in to outer space.
There is a reason that you’ve been put on this earth.
It’s something that you’ve known since your day of birth.
The people selfish with their golden SUV’s.
I do not care because I think that they are sleaze.
You know I love you and you’ve been gone for so long.
You know I dream of you instead of counting sheep.

I play my music on the synthesizer keys.
It’s something that will go throughout history.
There’s the sensation that our spirits running free.
I am my own worst retarded enemy.
The people selfish with their golden SUV’s.
I do not care because I think that they are sleaze.
You know I love you and you’ve been gone for so long.
I hope you dream of me instead of counting sheep.

Is it easy for you as it is for me?
As we struggle to be in this high society?
Will you be my little little bumblebee?
As we drive all night in your golden SUV?

Track Name: Trick
The sun should surely rise into another day of mediocrity.
So, as it may be I know it won’t be such a pretty sight.

With my blindfold and my apprentice at my side I’ll break free from these chains.
My next trick will be the best trick I’ve ever pulled in front of your eyes.

You might as well. You’re surrounded now. Give me the gun. Give me the gun.

Track Name: Loneliest People
Only in dreams can I feel feel your presence near me. Sticking the knife inside the toaster. I get high on death nearby. Suddenly we’ve been torn apart. We can’t feel love’s embraces.

And I can’t feel love anymore. We are the loneliest people. Broken dreams fly out my door. We are the loneliest people.

I’ve seen brighter eyes and better days with you.
I’ve seen brighter eyes and better days with you.

Tying the noose around my neck. I feel it getting tighter. There is a pride to carry on. I see truth in your green eyes.

And I can’t feel love anymore. We are the loneliest people. Broken dreams fly out my door. We are the loneliest people.

I’ve seen brighter eyes.
I’ve spent better days.
I’ve seen bluer skies.
I’ve spent better days with you.

I’ve seen brighter eyes.
I’ve spent better days.
I’ve seen bluer skies.
I’ve spent better days with you.

I’ve seen brighter eyes and better days with you.
I’ve seen brighter eyes and better days with you.

And I can’t feel love anymore. We are the loneliest people. Broken dreams fly out my door. We are the loneliest people.
Track Name: Glory Dayz
I have my whole life in front of me.
No one can steal my identity away from me.

So, I sail the seas of my mind spending up all of my time wishing I was somewhere away from here. Don’t want to waste the rest of my life thinking about the best the better of times. Thinking about my glory days. My Glory Days. My Glory days. My glory days.

I’m sick of stupid people upsetting me. Who think life is all about money. You think you’re better than me? You have more money than me? You think you’re better than me? Well, wait and see. You dirty yuppie.

So, I sail the seas of my mind spending up all of my time wishing I was somewhere away from you. Don’t want to waste the rest of my life thinking about the best the better of times. Don’t want to waste my glory days. My Glory Days. My Glory days. My glory days.

Whether it’s in your heart or your mind, a disposition, a loss of time, don’t lose track of your glory days. Just like a little tiny bird flying into his new world. Don’t want to lose your glory days. Your Glory Days. Your Glory Days. Your glory days. Your glory days.
Track Name: shame
We can hold on to this life for as long as we possibly can but everything comes to an end.
I can capture your image in my mind. But, whose to say it’ll still be there. Be there when I’m dead and gone.

And It’s a shame. It’s a shame. It’s a shame. It’s a shame we gotta die.
And It’s a shame. It’s a shame. It’s a shame. It’s a shame we gotta die.

And no it’s not too late to say the things that I wanted to say. Hey.
And I fall into an endless escape forever more.
And I fall into an endless escape forever more.
And I fall into an endless escape forever more.
And I fall into an endless escape forever more.

And It’s a shame. It’s a shame. It’s a shame. It’s a shame we gotta die.
And It’s a shame. It’s a shame. It’s a shame. It’s a shame we gotta die.
And It’s a shame. It’s a shame. It’s a shame. It’s a shame we gotta die.
And It’s a shame. It’s a shame. It’s a shame. It’s a shame we gotta die.

We can hold on to this life for as long as we possibly can but everything comes to an end.
Track Name: What good is a man?
I’ve been so impressed by your intelligence and pure good looks. You make everyone else look so small. I just want to be just like you. Just like you.

What good is a man who thinks he’s better than another man? Is it the things he owns or the color of his suntan? What good is a man? Who can’t lend a helping hand to help another man? Is this too much for him to demand?

Cell phone, SUV, your condominium is so so sweet. I love the way you run your hands through your freshly bleached blond hair. Your bleach blond hair.

What good is a man? Who can’t lend a helping hand to help another man? Is this too much for him to demand? What good is a man who thinks he’s better than another man? Is it the things he owns or the color of his suntan?
Track Name: ijwutbm
Spending all of my time wishing you were mine.
I don’t wanna leave this mess. I just want your sweet caress.
Anyone who knows me.
Knows that I’m abused.
And if you think you know me.
Well, I think you’re confused.
Track Name: Try 2 make u happy
So so, it comes down to this. I give you one last kiss before I die and float off to space.
I punch with broken fist. And don’t you ever say I did not try….
To make you happy
To make you happy
To make you happy

I break into a million pieces of shattered glass.
a million pieces of shattered glass.
a million pieces of shattered glass.
a million pieces of shattered glass.
a million pieces of shattered glass.

And I try to make you happy but I fail.
And I try to make you happy but I fail.
And I try to make you happy but I fail.
And I try to make you happy but I fail.
And I try

To make you happy.
To make you happy.
