Track Name: Revenge I
This is a story, over a year in the making
Of a love that I was wasting, and how the situations changed.
Now I’m left wondering what to do with all these feelings,
To send her little world reeling.
The only answer is revenge.
Track Name: Revenge II
First off I’ll say, that you did your best.
Although sometimes you were one of the rest.
There’ll come a day, when you’ll finally see.
That I can end your selfish life with ease.

So I’ll bide my time, I’ll plan my crime.
Revenge takes some time, bide my time, my time.

I know the truth you’re afraid of me,
You cower in your room and watch the streets.
But your mistake-- you think you’re strong.
But I can tear your heart out with this song.

So I’ll bide my time, I’ll plan my crime.
Revenge takes some time, bide my time, my time.

This plan will work without a hitch,
‘Cause my revenge is still the coldest dish.
Track Name: Baby Love
Baby Love, where do you get off?
I’m so sick of your walk and you talk and your squawk.
I think that I’ve had enough.
Oh, Baby Love, you’re so insufferable.
I can tell by your stare and your laugh and your hair.
I’m beginning to hate it all.

And I’ve had just enough of this shit, if you wanna know.
But I’d love to go back to your house, if you wanna go.

Baby Love, you’re so infallible.
You know I can’t admit that I’m doing as well.
Mais je pense que tu es si belle.

And I’ve had just enough of your shit, if you wanna know.
But I’d love to go back to your house…

Won’t you come, my love?
Won’t you be near, my love?
I can be dear, my love!
There’s no need for this fear, my love!
Won’t you take away this blame ‘cause I never hurt you, love?
Can you be mine, my love?
Tonight you are mine! (Yeah!)

Baby Love, that was a little rough.
And please can you forget all the things that I said?
I think that I’ve had enough.

And I’ve had just enough of this shit, if you wanna know.
But I’d love to go back to your house, if you wanna go.
Track Name: Fuck Everyone
I was a loner but I’m holding on, my heart’s still in it.
You’re just a stoner with a day job and no way to quit it.
I was there when you cut your arm and you yelled at me with your hand still bleeding.
Run away, run away, run away, run away,
Way, way, way, way, way!
Fuck everyone! Fuck everyone! Fuck everyone! Fuck everyone! Let’s go home!

You walk around and hold your head up like you’re Layne Montgomery.
If you could see yourself then you would know this joke ‘aint funny.
I was there when you cut your arm and you yelled at me with your hand still bleeding.
Run away, run away, run away, run away,
Way, way, way, way, way!
Fuck everyone! Fuck everyone! Fuck everyone! Fuck everyone! Let’s go home!
Track Name: A Last Hurrah for the Glory of Drinking Alone
Maybe I’m dumb, maybe I’m not.
Maybe I’m the only one that everyone forgot.
Maybe I hate myself but, they’ll never know.
‘Cause you’re the only one who had my soul,
Yeah, you’re the only one, who had my…

Maybe I’m just a bit naïve,
Maybe you’re the only one who see what I can see,
Maybe I hate my father, he’ll never know.
‘Cause you’re the only one who had my soul!
Yeah, you’re the only one who had my soul!

So take a chance, we’ve been waiting our whole lives!
Our love is dead, but I love watching it die.
And all our little heart attacks will end when I go.
‘Cause I’m the only one who has control!
Yeah I’m the only one who has control!
[Come on!]

Maybe you’re just a little young,
Maybe I’m the only one who knows where you are from.
Maybe I hate my mother, she’ll never know.
‘Cause you’re the only one who had my soul!
Yeah, you’re the only one who had my soul!

So take a chance, we’ve been waiting our whole lives!
Our love is dead, but I love watching it die.
And all our little heart attacks will end when I go,
‘Cause I’m the only one who has control!
Yeah I’m the only one who has control!
[Fuck you! Was that punk rock? Very much so.]
Track Name: Cyanide
I’m a phantom, I’m not handsome,
Your memory fails you,
My cyanide.

Your explosion, our implosion,
Your gravity fails you,
My dynamite.

But oh my god, am I still bleeding?
I’d give it all to stop this feeling.
This feeling. Oh!

Bring me nearest, make me fearless,
You’re aging in daylight,
My blind sight.
It’s my weakness, my one secret,
You know I still love you,
My cyanide.

But oh my god, am I still bleeding?
I’d give it all to stop this feeling.
This feeling. Oh!
Track Name: Daisy
Well, Daisy are you listening? You’re the only one that I like talking to.
Well, maybe I’m just missing all the little things that we were known to do.

Won’t you write down all my plans, please notify my friends, well it’s not an easy job but someone needs to understand.
And please give all of my stuff to everyone I’ve ever loved. Listen closely now, this life is not enough!

So won’t you fade away my wasted life,
Your memories are enough.
Make sure to tell your friends before they’re gone,
That you still give a fuck.
Before you lose everything that you have, and you never find it.

Well, Daisy are you listening let’s go to a place where we’ll never be found.
They’ll hate us or they’ll miss us but now either way we won’t be around.

Won’t you write down all my plans, please notify my friends, well it’s not an easy job but someone needs to understand.
And please give all of my stuff to everyone I’ve ever loved. Listen closely now, this life is not enough!

So won’t you fade away my wasted life,
Your memories are enough.
Make sure to tell your friends before they’re gone,
That you still give a fuck.
Before you lose everything that you have, and you never find it.

Well, Daisy are you listening? You’re the only one that I like talking to.
Well, maybe I’m just missing all the little things that I was known to do.

Won’t you write down all my plans, please notify my friends, well it’s not an easy job but someone needs to understand.
And please give all of my stuff to everyone I’ve ever loved. Listen closely now, this life is not enough!

So won’t you fade away my wasted life,
Your memories are enough.
Make sure to tell your friends before they’re gone,
That you still give a fuck.
Before you lose everything that you have, and you never find it.
[Ahh!]
Track Name: Undertaker
Do you remember when we had it all planned out?
We couldn’t do no wrong there wasn’t any doubt.
No you don’t, no you don’t!

You’ve got no cigarettes, you’ve got no money too.
You gave it all to me and I gave none to you.
And I won’t, and I won’t.

It’s ordinary, complimentary, give me some and I’ll take plenty.
Wasting time before I die.
I’ll meet my maker, undertaker.

You came to me a said that you had nothing left.
That I had blown my chance and I was better dead.
I'm a joke. I'm a joke.

You didn't see me there, you didn't say goodbye.
You treated my like I'd already died.
I'm a ghost. I'm a ghost.

It’s ordinary, complimentary, give me some and I’ll take plenty.
Wasting time before I die.
I’ll meet my maker, undertaker.

But when I see one of those movies,
Where the guy gets the girl, I see myself sleeping easy.
My heart swells to house the hope,
That this home might be big enough to house us both.

It’s ordinary, complimentary, give me some and I’ll take plenty.
Wasting time before I die.
I’ll meet my maker, undertaker.
Track Name: Velvet Eyes
Well, now that it’s all over there’s one thing to do.
Say goodbye, say goodbye.
Give yourself some credit where credit’s due.
That’s a lie. Oh, what a lie!

‘Cause you don’t care about the money.
You don’t care about the good stuff.
You just wanna be the winner,
And you wanna fuckin’ look tough.
I was always on the outside, a victim of the old lie.
But it’s the way you look tonight.
So goodbye, Velvet Eyes, Velvet Eyes!
Goodbye, Velvet Eyes. Velvet Eyes!

If you could only see that you are empty too,
We’d be fine. [Yup!] We'd be fine.
It’s only raw emotion I receive from you.
Fight or die! [right?] Fight or die!

‘Cause you don’t care about the money.
You don’t care about the good stuff.
You just wanna be the winner,
And you wanna fuckin’ look tough.
I was always on the outside, just a victim of an old lie.
But it’s the way you get a ride!
So goodbye, Velvet Eyes, Velvet Eyes!
Goodbye, Velvet Eyes. Velvet Eyes!

[Oh damn. What is it Jake? What a heck of a day it's been. Oh that's crazy!]

Goodbye, Velvet Eyes. Velvet Eyes!
Goodbye, Velvet Eyes. Velvet Eyes!
[Come on!]
Goodbye, Velvet Eyes. Velvet Eyes!
Goodbye, Velvet Eyes. Velvet Eyes!
Track Name: Little Dragon
She woke up today, cried her fears away,
Realized all that she had lost.
Her reason to live she'd forgot.

Ain't it just her luck, she had given up?
I know the pain never stops.
Each day in this world she is lost.

She opens the door, and falls on the floor.
It's just the end of the road for her.
She wants to be done, no cash for a gun.
I know what could have been, but she doesn't mean shit to him.
My little dragon. Oh no. My little dragon.

Woke up in the bath, forced herself to laugh.
She hadn't managed to die.
But she'll give another try.

Ain't it just my luck, she had given up?
I know we're birds of a feather,
And we could have done it together.

She opens the door, and falls on the floor.
It's just the end of the road for her.
She wants to be done, no cash for a gun.
I know what could have been, but she doesn't mean shit to him.
My little dragon. Oh no. My little dragon.

She opens the door, and falls on the floor.
It's just the end of the road for her.
She wants to be done, no cash for a gun.
I know what could have been, but she doesn't mean shit to him.
My little dragon. Oh no. My little dragon.
