Track Name: They Lied
They said that you could do anything you want to do, but they lied.
You said that you would be anything they want you to, and you tried
and you tried and you tried and you tried

You think it's counterproductive to ever look back, so you don't
You look forward to becoming somebody else, but you won't

and you tried and you tried and you tried

This is a story for everyone, the one who makes it and the one who just gave up. don't be the first to give up on yourself, just be ready when anything happens.

You try to get even younger the older you get, but you can't
Just wish you felt more like a giant and less like an ant, like an ant.

and you tried and you tried and you tried...
Track Name: Make the Sun Come Up
I want to play in the garden of eden
with joss whedon
and a mime
but i'm still hitting the streets like a madman, everything i've had man
came with a fight

and I want to go to school until I'm 80, and then maybe, I'll know what's up
instead I've got to sell you my snake oil,
for all that I toil it's never good enough.

things go up, and they go down and you notice they're revolving,
things go up and go back down all the time,
if you're not good enough, then you're probably just evolving,
take it down and go back up in a little while,

I want to pick the songs on the radio, I know I'd do a better job then they do now,
cause I want to go outside and hear a saxophone jam with a vibraphone won't you hear me out,
I want to write the songs that make the sun come up
oh how I wish that I was good enough,
but I'm still banging them out like a 4 year old,
I just wish I could get it up.
Track Name: Pretty Young Thing
Gets close to the bottom
It's time to fill back up,
he's made sure to notice,
it wasn't her first one.
she goes to the mirror,
nothing looks back out,
no one's there to warn her..
he can't stop checking her out..

you better run girl,
you'd better hide,
you're running the risk you..
might not make it home tonight.
if she wasn't looking
for any trouble that night,
trouble was
looking out
for a
pretty young thing tonight

she watched horror movies,
and she wasn't dumb,
she understood that
good girls get punished for fun..
her name is amanda
and she loves her dog.
this is what she looks like
hanging out in the quad.
she comes from 2 parents
and is a sister to 2
she could be your baby
and she could be you..

if she wasn't looking
for any trouble that night..
why did she
leave home with
her pretty long hair
and her pretty long legs tonight..

now there's nowhere she
wants to be
in the shadows,
she is free,
in between
all the rules
and lies
and mystery..

you bettter run girl..
Track Name: Debtor's Lament
What do you want me to do? what do you want me to say? what would you like me to ... pray to you? I can't remember your name, weren't we one and the same? now I can't lay any claim to you.. they put your soul in the bank, they got it filed under rank they put it in the computer too.. if you don't know what it is, how you gon protect your shizz no i don't mean your stero

it's such a long way down in the middle of town when you got no one to come and rescue you.. and if you borrow cash you better pay it back fast, or you never know who's gonna be owning you

hey mr you got some proof? they're going after the youth, they're going after your sister too.. they want to make her a slave, man they's a scoundrelly knave man they ain't got nothing else to do.. they put your soul in a bank they got it filed under rank they put it in the computer too.. if you don't know what it is, how you gon protect your shizz and i don't mean your stereo

I am not the sum of my belongings, I am not the sum of my degrees, I am not the someone who is falling down to beg you on my hands and knees.. i can't really owe you my soul, how do i get out of this hole?
Track Name: Headlights
Look at me, I failed again and I lost another friend, win the battle in a drawn out war, but when does it end..
i see it coming like a deer caught in the headlights.. tell me you see it too it's fast approaching bright, wish there was something I could do to make it all right

won't you save me from myself tonight

sick of me and sick of you and all that we have to do, to try and make it in this messed up world and what will become of you

I see it coming like a deer caught in the headights..

Dreams of candy and dreams of gold, these are the lies we're sold, don't make me grow up and lose it all, even if it's all foretold..
Track Name: 72 Times
You see what you want to see
You want the world to be
As simple as a sparrow
Believe you'll never get to be
The thing that you call free
If you keep your thinking narrow
Inside the chambers of your mind
Try not to define the wicked or the virtue
Lets try to settle down try to mellow out
But if you can't bring yourself to do it
I will take you all one at a time
you will never get out of here alive
Don't say you weren't warned I tried
72 x not just cause it rhymed
Don't tell me you're afraid
If there's an enemy you made hell i beat you to it
Get up off the couch straighten up your slouch
Can you be the one to do it
Or I will take you all one at a time

no matter what you say there is no other way
So don't be so dramatic
I'll tell you one more time while you are in your prime
You better get this peace and love shit down
cause I will take you all..
Track Name: My Roommate Is An @$$Clown
why you always hanging round my door i don't want you there no more don't want you there no more
why you always hanging round my tree it's not all right with me, won't you find some place else to be
cause there is nothing i would rather do than get away from you
you pushed me right over the edge there is nothing else for me to do to get through to you

why can't you just walk across a room, without leaving a trail of gloom, god you fucked up all the rooms why can't you go somewhere for a while, god it would make me smile if you cleaned up your garbage pile
cause there is nothing I would rather do...

you just don't know what it means to be considerate pissing on the toilet seat i call that shit deliberate, cause i just done cleaned it 5 minutes ago, i know you're not mean but are you really that slow? sometimes i think that you suffer from aspbergers, driving us crazy why are we your fucking passengers, i think that it's time that you moved yourself out, if you've got roommate itis lets hear you shout..
Track Name: Running Away
I've been lots of places and they all look the same
but i don't want to lay my head down once they know my name
you think it's a phase, i tell you it aint
and it ain't just that you're funny looking or that you are quaint
what am i always running away from? i'm running out of places to go because everytime i go away i know

i've met lots of people, some of them don't suck, i would stay here with you but i just don't give a fuck
you think it's a phase and well that may be true i'd just prefer to keep my heels up than stay here with you.. what am i always running away from?
Track Name: Sad Clown
Last night the old folks met in town, i wasn't able to come down, i sit alone now in my room and wait for a visit from the moon. maybe if it was not so hot, maybe if it was not so loud, maybe if i was not so proud, when i get back i'm gonna make a big old debut as a sad clown.. that's what happens when you ignore the entertainers

i live in new york city, all the people are so pretty, lit by streetlights shimmery but really everything's just too gritty in this fad town.. that's what happens when you ignore the entertainers

i play the game with all I have, well maybe not but more than half, last time i asked you what to do, you told me I was on the right track well, is that still true because i can drown...
when you got no money left and you gave up petty theft and you got no place to be but i got misery for now..
Track Name: Let Down
Girl walks into a parking lot, the last one out of the midnight movie girl walks into a parking lot alone, man looks out on his family, knows there's a disease he's hiding, man looks out on his family.. nobody said it would be easy, nobody said it would be fair, rapunzel let down your hair and find someone who'll share

young girl with a terminal crush on a boy singing songs to everyone, young girl's got a terminal crush. doesn't matter what you think you are, we're all gonna turn to dust someday, doesn't matter what you think you are..
nobody said it would be easy

if you can appreciate then pain is the same as beauty, if you can appreciate..
Track Name: Metronome
You and me we got it everything we need but we still need to put it in a better order, in the past few years i've turned myself inside out i'm still looking for what used to be my self destruction..
but what's this i hear on the metronome, when are you, are you coming home, cause i always knew life would go this fast, time makes you blind kicks you in the ass..

everybody's laughing, cause everybody's gay and everybody's been picked to feel this way, in the quiet moments who would ever think.. that a world this blessed would be so close to the brink..

coarse and stubbly faces, coarse and stubbly legs, coarse and stubbly forests cut down into pegs, i wish i could call 1863 and ask president lincoln what's he thinking of me..

but what's this i hear on the metronome....
