Track Name: Sit N Wait
I sit and I wait all goddamn day

hey man I woke up this morning
motherfuckers hitting snooze, I’m yawning
don’t wanna go to work
I just wanna call in and tell them I’m sick

I know it ain’t true man, but I don’t give a shit
today’s my day bitch, today’s my day
I wanna do what I wanna do, ya know?

I sit and I wait all day for something to change

walked out into my neighbor hood
I said whatcha slinging man, what is good?
he said “ain’t got nothing for you motherfucker
get the fuck out of my motherfucking corner”

I said alright man, I didn’t wanna get in his shit
I didn’t wanna get killed, that ain’t worth that shit
I just wanted to get the fuck up out of there
maybe get home and drop some acid

I sit and I wait all day for something to change

yeah, what did you wanna do?
wanna go see that new movie man, ninja turtles 2
but that shit ain’t that good
I heard it on rotten tomatoes from the critics

but I didn’t want to talk to my cat
the conversation ain’t that good as a matter of fact
so I turned on some more cartoons
lazied all day in my pajamas

I sit and I wait all day for something to change
Track Name: I'm a Disease
ain’t hard to see I don’t give a damn
step back or you’ll soon meet a bad end
go home or find yourself to be abandoned

I’ve got no hopes, ain’t got no dreams
I’m stranded lying naked in the street
getting harder for me to try to believe I’m not a disease

and in the end everything is coming true
I can’t get away from what I’ve had to do
believe in the force, you said it’s what’s inside of you

go

can’t you fucking see that I’m not your friend
I don’t give a shit, I won’t lend you a hand
but now I feel something inside has been awakened

you know that you should just give up on me
cause in the end you’re sure enough to see
I cannot fucking escape from my sheer insanity

when I found the key I locked myself in
nowhere to go, no more pretend
I am fighting a war that I know that I just cannot win

go

no I can’t be cured with your medicine
but you fucking go and shove it right on in
this pain is something that you can’t imagine

they came in the night and they took my voice
I died in the alley, they raped my corpse
it sounds like an angel singing latin in reverse

no one fucking came to my funeral
cause they never even knew the real me at all
and I don’t know why they still bring me flowers every fall

go
Track Name: Orange Dream
I guess this is it
I guess this is what
my life is going to be now
the eternal turd
from the eternal butt
I'd better start learning to see how
I can cast the break
I can stitch the cut
who better to heal than me now?
I can't tell you why
but I tell you what
I'm a winner and I'm takin a new vow

I'll put the breaks down
I'll take the trash out
I'll check my self doubt
I'll know my name

it's a decent show
if you can find a seat
the band is pretty good
some of their songs are weak
but it's worth your time
and the cover's cheap
and you can go home early
if you don't think it's sweet

I’ve got a back stage pass
the M&M's are green
I can get you in
if that's what you need
I'll be here all night
I'll be on my feet
and you know where to find me
if that's what you need
Track Name: Lou Anderson
every time I think of you
I wanna stick a hot knife through my chest
I try to keep my cool but
I'm a melted mess
when I said I loved you it made you depressed

every time I think of you
I wanna tear every hair out of my head
when I said I need you, you up and left
why do I still want you clogging up my nest?

every time I try to sleep
I'm reminded of all the things I'll never be
I coulda been a grandpa
you coulda soaked my teeth
we coulda learned to live with real humanity
Track Name: Do Your Own Thing
went and burned another bridge so I guess I’ll have to find me another way
everybody’s trying to tell me what I should and shouldn’t say
everybody’s got a different opinion, all of them can just go away
everybody’s just a fucking clone playing the same old game

but I gotta get out what I put back in
like I fucking lose what I fucking win
everybody can do something somebody can’t
who gives a shit? do your own thing

everybody seems a little jealous when they see me doing my thing
loose lipped and foul mouthed, I claim none as king
I sure as shit don’t need your opinion about what tune it is that I should sing
all your talk sounds so familiar, you’re just a fucking slave

but I gotta get out what I put back in
like I fucking lose what I fucking win
everybody can do something somebody can’t
who gives a shit? do your own thing
Track Name: Get in Line
people say that I’m a creep
but I don’t lose any sleep
all y’all look like fucking sheep
what the fuck you wanna say to me?

if you wanna fuck with me
well, get in line

I sit and wait all goddamn day
get on my knees and start to pray
that I don’t care what other people say
but now I do, so until that day

if you wanna fuck with me
well, get in line

well I think we should settle this
come over her and give me a kiss
why you staring like a piece of shit?
It’ll last longer if you take a pic

if you wanna fuck with me
well, get in line
Track Name: No Words
just kidding, there are none
Track Name: Neuter Cone
no thrill like setting a broken bone
I can feel the groove
turned up but stuck on the things to come
I can feel it coming
hold back paint over a compass rose
no means no
each day I'm closer to being composed
gee, it's really been something

I hear it going clear
I see how it's got to be
I feel it becoming real
but I can't touch you half as much as I want to

I'm disconnecting the war machine
I can change my tone
still imperfecting the masterpiece
we can watch the paint dry up
stop in the name of the leaking hose
or you'll soak your shoes
no way to shake off the neuter cone
so you'd better get used to it

I hear it going clear
I see how it's got to be
I feel it becoming real
but I can't touch you half as much as I want to
Track Name: It's Alive!
when I was lost I found you there
you had your mona lisa smile and apathetic stare
if love is criminal then this must be a crime
now they got me locked up baby and now I’m serving time

out in the night I fucking roam
everybody’s got the same old fucking show
I don’t know how I almost fucking died
until they screamed out it’s alive

damn right I’m alive

you always like to paint it black
you said I like to paint it grey as a matter of fact
when you answered the telephone you said it’s the holy ghost
I said there’s no saving me cause I’ve already sinned way to much

out in the night I fucking roam
everybody’s got the same old fucking show
I don’t know how I almost fucking died
until they screamed out it’s alive

damn right I'm alive
Track Name: Gettin High
sometimes my job has me filled with stress
and my whole life feels like it’s one big mess
but when I’ve got to relax and I need to chill
well I know what exactly will fit the bill
so light it up, take a puff
oh shit I just can’t get enough
and if you feel what I’m saying then let’s light up

if you wanna know just how I roll (that’s how I roll)
and how I light the fire inside my soul
and if you wanna know exactly how it is that I’m getting by

well, I’m getting high

well yeah I guess some people, they like their smack
and all my friends seem to be hooked on prozac
yeah got my education, learned how to read
and then I whipped out and I smoked some weed
what the hell, holy shit
I think I need another hit
who gives a fuck, just legalize it

if you wanna know just how I roll (that’s how I roll)
and how I light the fire inside my soul
and if you wanna know exactly what it is I’m doing when I drive

well, I’m getting high
Track Name: Hi, My Name is Colin
hi, my name is Colin
and I'm having a pretty hard time
the girl I loved said I wasn't enough
now I'm kinda losing my mind
I asked her why she left me
and I'm still not sure that I know
something about how I stressed her out
and how she couldn't tell me so
now I can't let go

the best intentions
met with resentment
call into question
a life time of supposed progress

I'm not worth fussing over
and she's never changing her mind
the newspaper said what are you doing in bed
I said we're mostly just wasting our time
a poetic aberration
in a new apolitical world
I had my doubts but I sniffed her out
and I was pretty sure she was my girl
you can't be too sure

the best intentions
met with resentment
call into question
a life time of supposed progress
anticipating
ego inflating
left me parading
a life time of bodacious hubris
Track Name: Daguerreotype
my head's a dark room
and everything I've ever done is up on the line
a deep bowl, a clear view
where nothin is impossible if I got the time
but I can't get near you
cause all that I could offer you is dead on the vine
so 3 cheers and fuck you
it's only getting better baby I'm still alive

what, what is the point?
why do I care?
who could be?
where, where is the place?
when will I go?
how can it be real?

my heart's a dark tomb
and everyone I've ever loved has swallowed the lie
a deep hole to trap you
so I can make it better, baby, don't you cry
so what then if us two
could get a place together and live there til we die?
a boy's dream could come true
but not if you're preparing for a tearful goodbye

so, what was the point?
did you ever care
about me?
why, why am I so
hard to adore
and easy to leave here?
Track Name: Will I Ever Win?
they wanna erase me
I’m fighting forces I can’t see
they hatch they’re plans in the night
and now they’re coming after me

what the fuck you laughing for?
cause now they’re knocking down your door
and now we’re in this shit together
so what the fuck we fighting for?

and I know that I am tearing down these walls
and I see that everything is caving in
and I know that I am never giving up
whether not we are ever gonna win

go

I’ve got a secret to tell
this world is just a living hell
they drop you down the rabbit hole
and now you’ll never live to tell

it’s the american dream
I guess it ain’t bad as it seems
until the blood is running down the streets
and all you hear are screams

and I know that I am tearing down these walls
and I see that everything is caving in
and I know that I am never giving up
whether not we are ever gonna win

go

they wanna draw the lines
I’m busting my ass 9 to 5
they fuck me up with their distractions
while they’re feeding me their lies

they’re gonna raid your town
they wanna raise it, burn it down
but I wonder what those shits will do
once they’ve lost their crown

and I know that I am tearing down these walls
and I see that everything is caving in
and I know that I am never giving up
whether not we are ever gonna win

go
Track Name: I'll Never Get Better
nonbelievers start to believe
when you come out of the woodwork and take back the streets
and I don’t know what they’re doing or what they wanna be
but they wanna be inside you and me

it’s raped culture, greedy vultures
they assault ya right there in the streets
and I don’t know why they’re doing it or what they wanna be
but they wanna be inside you and me

should I feel shameful or really bad?
wanna know what I feel?
well I’m good and mad

I wag my tail, I shake my fist
I simply want to know what is the meaning of this
and no one ever answers and no one dares respond
and it’s hard for me to move along

constant rejection, endless depression
inverse deception, and it’s all in my head
I’m a deviant, I’m off my rock and I just don’t belong
and it’s hard for me to move along

where am I going?
where am I now?
no way in knowing anything anyhow

yeah life is awful, I don’t know why
and one day you best believe that all of us are gonna die
I wonder how I wonder but I never understand
and it’s hard for me to give a damn

it’s hard going, which way’s it flowing?
no way in knowing and I just can’t comprehend
no figuring it out, no knowing why, full of insightful dead ends
and it’s hard for me to give a damn

and what am I but a man?
I don’t know why, but I don’t give a damn

alright now, can you feel me?
I’m in the air
