01: When It All Goes Wrong Again

Yes I think it's safe to say
I feel good about the place that
I have made in the world today
I get all sticky inside when I close my eyes and open up wide

I see pictures in the clouds
so obscene I gotta laugh out loud
I look back to find my way
Reminisce nice About the good old days...

When I saw my brother above me
I remember the words he said
"When you dream you hit bottom
Chances are good you're gonna wake up dead"
I will be up on top when the sky falls down
And it all goes wrong again

I will be sitting on top
When it all goes wrong again
I will be sitting on top
When it all goes wrong

Yes I think it's safe to say
I feel good about the sin that I inflict on my own skin
I pay money to cut and burn
Pictures like lessons that I need to learn

I see faces on the ceiling
I see them move I hear them singing
I lay down laughing here by myself
And think about the time that I spent in hell
When I saw my brother below me
I remember the words he said
"when you need to wake up happy
You better sleep right in your own warm bed"

I will be singing in the rain
When my bed's on fire
When it all goes wrong again

I will be singing in the rain
When it all goes wrong again
I will be singing in the rain
when it all goes wrong

Where are you going to be...
When it all comes down?
What are you going to do...
When it all comes down?
Where are you going to be...
when it all comes down?
What are you going to do...
When it all comes down on you?

Sitting on the top of the world
(..when it all goes wrong again)
I will be sitting on top when the sky falls down
(...and it all goes wrong again)
I will be sitting on top
when it all goes wrong again
I will be sitting on top
when it all goes wrong again
I will be sitting on top
when it all goes wrong again
Again and again
I will be sitting on top
when it all goes wrong...

Yeah, when it all goes wrong again
When it all goes wrong again
When it all goes wrong again
When it all goes wrong again
When it all goes wrong again
When it all goes wrong again
When it all goes wrong

02: Slide

We were fading like the bottom of a bad dream
We were heading south looking for a good time
Faces look so pretty in the spotlight
All blown out and bathed inside a world of white

Sometimes I feel like I am holding it together
Sometimes I feel like everything is fine
Sometimes I feel like I'm out of control
I feel like I am falling
Like my life is on a slide
Slide Slide Slide Slide

It was sunny on the streets down there by the water

We would get hammered on the beach
Right down by the water

She was slightly out of reach
A rich man's only daughter

I think she slept with me
Just so she could piss off her father

I am elastic
I am easy with the damage
I am ecstatic
I am hungry for the climb
Sometimes I feel  Like I am falling apart...
I feel like I'm falling...
like my life is on a slide
Slide Slide Slide Slide

I know it's wrong but I just can't seem to act my age
I know it's but I just can't seem to control my rage
My heart is racing and I am losing my mind
Sometimes I feel like my life is on a slide
Slide

Those faces look so scary in the harsh light
All blown out and bathed inside a world of white
We were shining like the good part of a bad time
We were laughing, happy just to be along for the ride

Sometimes I feel like I am really lucky
I have made it through bruised and scarred and half alive
Sometimes I feel like I'm out of control
I feel like I am falling
Like my life is on a slide
Slide Slide Slide Slide

Yes I know it's wrong but I just can't seem to act my age
Yes I know it's wrong but I just can't seem to control my rage
My heart is racing and I am losing my mind
Sometimes I feel like my life is on a slide
03: Baby Talk

This is a song about Spike
He is a bad ass guy
Who just happens to be
A really good friend of mine

Everyone I know...yeah
Who knows Spike too
Would agree when I say the words
That Spike is cool

The problem with my friend Spike
He has fallen into
A true love with a nice girl
Who has gotta lot of tattoos

He always talks crazy
Whenever she calls
He always talks like a baby
It's obvious
She has got him by the balls
She has got him by the balls
She has got him by the balls

My weird little brother James
And his ex-girlfriend
They would talk in those ridiculous voices
We would all be hanging out
getting drunk in the neighborhood
And they both would make those ridiculous noises

He would always talk crazy
Whenever she calls
He always talks like a baby
It is obvious
They have got him by the balls

I hate you when you talk like that
I wish you could act like a grown man

(They have got you by the balls)
I hate you when you talk like that
I wish you could act like a grown man

(They have got you by the balls)

I hate you when you talk like that
I wish you could act like a grown man

(They have got you by the balls)

You will never see me walking that walk
You will never catch me
Talking that babytalk

(you know it's true... they've got you by the balls)

Which brings me back to Spike
A good guy to have in a fight
Unless he was with his girlfriend
Obnoxious on Saturday night

You know he couldn't care less
What anyone thinks
He does not give a damn
No, because he has no shame

He looks so happy
Just like everything is fine
He is oblivious to the fact
That he has no spine

He always talks crazy
(you have no shame)
Whenever she calls
(you have no shame)
He talks like a baby
(you have no shame)
It is obvious they have got him by the balls

I hate you when you talk like that
I wish you could act like a grown man

(they have got him by the balls)

I hate you when you talk like that
I wish you could act like a grown man

(they have got him by the balls)
I hate you when you talk like that
I wish you could act like a grown man

(they have got him by the balls)

You will never see me walking that walk
You will never catch me
Talking that babytalk

(you know it's true...they've got you by the balls)

I am not going to let it
get to me

They've got you by the balls
They've got you by the balls
Yeah They've got you by the ball

05: Short Blonde Hair

Hey I think this is getting to me
First class living in a goldfish bowl
Just when I think I have driven my life where I wanted it to be
It takes me to a place that I do not want to go
All I ever wanted to do was to learn how to break this world in two
Teach it all the tricks I wanted it to learn
Teach it how to do that I want it to do
No one really understands just how simple and plain and predictable I am
Because all I ever wanted to do was to play guitar in a rock and roll band
Now I'm just losing my hair and I'm learning how to smile like I just don't care

No, I just don't care
(I hear them under their breath)
No, I just don't care
(what they say...when they think that I can't hear them)
I see them point and I see them stare
There goes that stupid guy with the short blonde hair

Yeah, I think this is getting to me
First class living in a goldfish bowl
Just when I think I have driven my life where I wanted it to be
It takes me to a place that I do not want to go
All I ever wanted to do was to learn how to break this world in two
Teach it all the tricks I wanted it to learn
Teach it how to do that I want it to do
No one really understands just how simple and plain and predictable I am
Because all I ever wanted to do was to play guitar in a rock and roll band
Now I'm just losing my hair and I'm learning how to smile

No, I just don't care
(I hear them under their breath)
No, I just don't care
(what they say...when they think that I can't hear them)

I see them point and I see them stare
There goes that stupid guy
With the short blonde hair
Short blonde hair

Say la de da de da de da
Say la de da de da de da
Say la de da de da de da
Say la de da de da de da
La de da de da de da
La de da de da de da

06: Misery Whip

Walking wounded with a belly full of pain and a big bad attitude
We are shaking shadows for that perfect dark room
We can do just what we want to do

There is a place where we can leave behind
All those simple minds
They would not like the way we live
When we are all alone in this house that we call home
You will become my misery whip

(yes...I said like a misery whip)

Walking hungry with a pocket full of promise
And a big black song in my head
I know the answers to my questions
They are purple black and blue
And they are waiting for me in my bed

There is a place where we can leave behind
All those simple minds
They would not like they way we live
When we are all alone In this house that we call home
You will become my misery whip

(I will say it again...like a misery whip)

Stop!

I get no pleasure when I'm going through the motions
Of my mediocre day to day
I'm just an actor just like Robert fucking Redford
When I say those stupid words that they expect me to say

Yes we can leave behind
All those simple minds
They would not like the dirty things we do

Yeah

When we are all alone in this house that we call home
I will fall down like a bitch for you
I need you to hit me and make me shake
I need you to hurt me and make me beg for more
I need you to bend me and make me break
I need you to make me feel like I am your whore

I feel complete when I feel sick inside
I feel complete when I feel sick inside
I feel complete when I feel sick inside
I feel complete when I feel sick inside
I need to feel like I am real inside
I need to feel like I am really alive
I need you to make me feel
I need you to make me feelI need you to make me feel
I need you to make me feelI need you to make me feel
I need you to make me feel
I need you to make me feel

I need you to hit me and make me shake
I need you to hurt me and make me beg for more
I need you to bend me and make me break
I need you to make me feel

Like we can leave behind all those simple minds
They would not like the way we live
When we are all alone in this house that we call home
You will become my misery whip
You will become my misery whip
You will become my misery whip
You will become my misery whip
You will become my friend

07: Out Of My Depth

Out of my depth lost in the air
Falling faster like a broken elevator
Out of my depth lost in the dark
Waiting for the other shoe to come down hard

I cannot communicate like I wish I could
I do not deal with my problems like I know I should
I am out of my depth
I am out of my league
Watching everything...just slip away from me

Something bad is going to happen
I can feel it deep inside
There are shadows all around me
Like a bad moon on the rise

I am in over my head
I am in too deep here over my head
I guess I should keep my opinions to myself
I guess I am out of my depth

Out of my depth right from the start
I feel like I was born with an invisible heart
Out of my depth seems like everyday
I can't find the words to make the good things come my way

I feel like I am faking it
I feel like I am wrong
I feel like I'm a guest
Like I just do not belong

I am out of my depth every single day
I just cannot find the words to make my monsters go away

Something bad is going to happen
I can feel it deep inside
There are shadows all around me
Like a bad moon on the rise

I am in too deep here over my head
I am in too deep here over my head
I should seek some professional help
Because I'm out of my depth
Yes, I'm out of my depth
And I am slowly going out of my mind

Oh, go away
Make them go away
Someday I know
I will make them go away
Make them go away
Make them go away
Someday I know I will make my monsters go away

I am in over my head
I should seek some professional help
I should keep my opinions to myself
I guess I am out of my depth

I am out of my depth
I am out of my depth
I am out of my

I am out of my depth
I am out of my depth
I am out of my depth
I am out of my depth
I am out of my depth
I am out of my depth
Yes, I am slowly going
out of my mind

08: The Good Witch Of The North

You pull me down to the floor of our apartment
A little while later we are laughing at our carpet burns
I like the way that it glows outside as the room gets darker
How I wish we could stay like this while the rest of the world turns
There has never been a time when I didn't want to be your boyfriend
There has never been a time when I didn't want to know your name
Free falling from a work in progress
Free falling from a life on hold
There has never been a time when I didn't want you

Yeah My good lover is my one good thing these days
You help me keep it all from slipping away
I swear I'm going to marry you

Someday (someday)

I am all alone and it seems like all I do is wait
Yes we spend hours on the phone but it's never the same
No, nothing good ever does come easy
Nothing good ever comes without a fight

I am all alone and I wish I was home with you tonight
Yes, my good lover is my one good thing these days
You help me keep it all from slipping away
I swear I'm going to marry you someday
Yeah my girlfriend is like magic in the hand
When I lose my sparkle she's the one that understands
I know I'm going to marry you someday

Yeah I know I'm going to marry you someday
Yeah I swear I'm going to marry you someday

Yeah Yeah I swear I'm going to marry you...

Someday
Someday
Someday

10: All Fucked Up

INTRO:
Oh!
No it ain't easy being easy now
Woah woah woah
It ain't easy being easy now
Woah woah woah
No it ain't easy being easy now

(laughter)

Spoken: Hey what in the fuck are you laughing at? Get out of the way! One, Two, Three, Four, One, Two Three!

I am all fucked up
And I am ready to break
Now I don't wanna be the guy
Who is always on the outside
I wanna find my own good place

All fucked up
And I don't know how
How I ever got to where I feel
Like I am dying on the inside
I want to be happy but I don't know how

And I am all fucked up
And it's always the same
Yeah I always get so close,
Then I let it get away
I got no one but myself to blame

I'm all fucked up
And I don't know why
If the rest of my life
Is going to be like this
Think I would rather die
I am all fucked up

Aw, I am all fucked up
You're happy

You're happy
Yes, I am all fucked up

When I'm all fucked up
You're happy

And I am all fucked up
Yes, I am ready to break
Yeah I don't wanna be the guy
Who is always on the outside
I wanna find my own good place

All fucked up
And I don't know how
How I ever got to where I feel
Like I'm dying on the inside
I want to be happy now

I am all fucked up
Yeah and it is always the same
I always get so close
then I let it get away
I got no one but myself to blame

All fucked up
And I don't know why
If the rest of my life
Is going to be like this
Than I think I would rather die
I am all fucked up

11: Overwhelming


It can come from out of nowhere
Hit you when you're safe and warm
Take it easy my star
Your time is going to come
Your time is going to come

You got those crazy blye eyes
Yeah you got those crazy blues
All those pretty smiles
I can see them laughing at you
Your time is going to come
Your time is going to come

I don't want to be your punching bag
Your complacent little princess all tragic and sad
I'm not going to let you overwhelm me
Anymore
No, not anymore

Yeah you say you got this bad thing
Yeah you say you got it bad
You have broken every heart
Of every friend you've ever had

Someday the time is going to come
When all your friends just go away
(Just go away, just go away)

I wonder why I stick around
Sometimes I wish you would leave
You say you'll love me forever
Then you spit on me
Your time is going to come
I swear your time is going to come

I don't want to be your whipping boy
Your pathetic little loser
Someone you can ignore
I'm not going to let you overwhelm me
Anymore (aw aw aw aw)

I'm not going to let you hurt me anymore
I'm not going to let you hit me anymore
I'm not going to let you kick me anymore
I will not let you overwhelm my anymore
(anymore anymore)
I will not let you overwhelm my anymore
(anymore anymore)
I will not let you overwhelm my anymore
(anymore anymore)
I will not let you overwhelm my anymore
(anymore anymore)

It can come from out of nowhere

I don't want to be your simple saving grace
Just another little victim with a happy face
Oh someday someday someday, soon
Somebody's going to come
I hope they do this to you

I'm not going to let you overwhelm me
I will not let you hurt me anymore
I will not let you hurt me anymore
I will not let you hit me anymore
I will not let you twist me anymore
No, I will not let you turn me inside out

12: Song From An American Movie Part 2

Sometimes I get to a point
Where I don't give a damn about anything anymore
Sometimes I get to a point
Where I feel numb and I just don't care

Sometimes I feel like I just don't care
Yeah sometimes I feel like I just don't care

I sit in my car and listen to the radio
I think about the past and it seems so long ago
I know the pain is slowly going to fade
This life is going to get better
(Things are going to be better)

I wait until my ex-wife has gone away
I walk around the house getting lost inside the old day
I see a picture where everybody's smiling...
I know I got to keep it on the inside

I want to get lost from my life sometimes
Sit on the side and watch the world go by
I want to get lost and I don't know why

Sometimes I want to get lost and I don't know why
Sometimes I want to get lost and just dream for a while

Waiting for my little girl
Waiting on the school bus
Going to the movies
Yeah just the two of us
Sit inside the dark and dream for awhile
Our life is going to get better
(Yeah it's going to be better)

I wake up weird in the middle of the night
I walk the floor until my mind gets right
I think about the past and it makes me want to cry
I know I got to keep it on the inside

I want to get lost from my life sometimes
Sit on the side and watch the world go by
I want to get lost in the dark and dream for awhile
Yeah just sit inside a dark room and dream for awhile

The only thing that ever makes sense to me
Is the words to a song from an American movie

The only thing that ever made sense in my life
Is the sound of my little girl laughing
Alive and happy in the summertime
Woah alive and happy in the summertime woah

I am just like everyone I know
I am afraid of things that I don't know
I am afraid of ever really being alone
I want to find myself a brand new heart
I want to find a girl and make a brand new start
I want to find a girl and get lost in the dark
I want to find a girl and get lost in the dark
The only thing that ever makes sense to me
Is the words to a song from an American movie

The only thing that ever made sense in my life
Is the sound of my little girl laughing
Through the window of a summer night
I sit alone in the backyard wishing I could be inside
Just the sound of my little girl laughing
Makes me happy just to be alive

Sometimes I am happy just to be alive
Woah yeah I am happy just to be alive
Sometimes I am happy just to be alive woah
Woah
