Track Name: Emma (For You)
When I saw the evening end I sat beside myself again
and wondered if she'd ever walk my way.
Then I had some time to think and maybe just a couple drinks,
And these are all the words that I would say.

Oh! For you.
Oh! For you.
And I would dance at your funeral,
Giggle if you're terminal,
Fall asleep while you explain your life.
Oh! For you.

Now I'm not one for making sense but this shit aint coincidence,
You are slinking your way through my mind.
I'm about to talk about, "about the things you're all about."
And understand, we'll win in time.

Oh! For you.
Oh! For you.
And I would dance at your funeral,
Giggle if you're terminal,
Fall asleep while you explain your life.
Oh! For you.

Well can't you see,
Im trying not to follow you? But I'm failing, I'm failing.
I am sure, that if you listened close to me,
That I'd still be waiting for you.
Oh! For you.

And I would dance at your funeral,
Giggle if you're terminal,
Fall asleep while you explain your life.
Oh! For you.
Track Name: Bad Education
Hey! I never thought you're insane.
I'm just a victim of social demands and broken-ass plans,
And all of my words are true.
They say I'm gay, but I don't kiss all my friends.
I'll pretend that I'm drunk off my ass,
And I'll make a pass, on any dude on any day, well.

I'm the result of a bad education,
I'm the result of a mental constipation,
I'm the result of a lack of information.
I'm not good for you, but you're the one for me.

Hey! Don't talk to me that way!
'Cause you know I'm a crook and a thief and I'll break in your room,
And leave you there with just your teeth.
It's a shame that you made me a key,
I have no reservations about locking you out,
Get a new girl make a new family, well.

I'm the result of a bad education,
I'm the result of a mental constipation,
I'm the result of a lack of information.
I'm not good for you, but you're the one for me.

As we walk these streets I always knew.
I will sing the songs that I usually do.
But darlin' don't you ever think that I'm too dumb for you.
I'm not good for you, but you...

I'm the result of a bad education,
I'm the result of a mental constipation,
I'm the result of a lack of information.
I'm not good for you, but you're the one for me. Agh! *Burp*
Track Name: Sold
Because you found me in the dead of the night.
Broke with my hands tied,
What a stupid girl! Tried to rule to world.

Because I had a different point of view,
I think I lost it.
What an angry girl! Tried to rule the world.

'Cause I think I'm bad, and you think you're bold.
Darlin' I loved so long ago.
'Cause I think you're bad, and you think you're bold.
Long ago.

And when I find myself alone in my room,
I know that I'm waiting.
What an angry girl! Think she rules the world.

'Cause I think I'm bad, and you think you're bold.
Darlin' I loved so long ago.
'Cause I think you're bad, and you think you're bold.
Long ago.
Track Name: O! Caroline
O! Caroline,
I don't wanna sound absurd, but some love's gotta work.
And I've been wasting mine.
O! Caroline,
I'm sure that you could guess that you're my one interest.
And we could fake the rest, well.

I've been wasting all my time,
Wondering when you would be mine.
I am your ghost so I'll follow you home.
When there's no one around, then you'll be mine, My Caroline.

O! Caroline,
I'd love to take some time to prove that I could rhyme,
And we could fake the rest.
O! Caroline,
I heard you shot a man just because you can,
But I am not impressed, well.

I've been wasting all my time,
Wondering when you would be mine.
I am your ghost so I'll follow you home.
When there's no one around, then you'll be mine, My Caroline.
Track Name: One Of The Rest
Well I guess you know that I'm into you.
And I would never ever break your heart.
But now I'm convinced that you'd ruin me,
I'll play my part, I'll play my part.

It's the second time that you told a lie,
But lying never gonna save your soul.
Don't you dare forget you're not a savior yet.
I'll play my part, I'll play my part.

All we need is rope around your neck,
But all we have is a weekend to forget.
"You're the reason that I always feel like shit."
"You're the person that I wish I hadn't met."
But now you're One of the Rest!

Now I hate myself, 'cause I lied to you
when I said I won't write you your own song.
I'm a piece of shit, but at least I'm used to it.
I'll play my part, I'll play my part.

All we need is rope around your neck,
But all we have is a weekend to forget.
"You're the reason that I always feel like shit."
"You're the person that I wish I hadn't met."
But now you're One of the Rest!
Track Name: El Valtrex
I once knew a girl.
I forgotten her name.
But she gave me all a girl could give,
And still I felt no shame.

We laughed and we loved,
But all I could do,
Was sit and talk and try and think of you.

Well so, I need to know.
But I couldn't hate the way you want me to.
And now, I'm trying to find,
A victim of all your use, from this noose.
I was a victim of your mind, your mind, oh! your mind.
I don't know where I'm going.
But I know, you're coming too.

Well, I once knew a girl.
I forgotten her name.
But she gave me all a girl could give,
And still I felt no shame.

Well so, I need to know.
But I couldn't hate the way you want me to.
And now, I'm trying to find,
A victim of all your use, from this noose.
I was a victim of your mind, your mind, oh! your mind.
I don't know where I'm going.
But I know, you're coming too.
Track Name: Murder The Night
It was Thursday, I dunno.
I was standing outside with nowhere to go.
But Friday, hypnotized by another girl with other lies.
Now Saturday, come undone, if you come clean you're the only one.
Now Sunday, fuck my life! Sleeping all alone with a box of wine.

Cause I, I felt like a man! Darlin' I cannot understand.
I was just waiting to come back inside, but you puked in your hands.
And you murdered the night, murder the night.

Now Monday, what can I say? When the world's against you, you're torn and frayed.
Now Tuesday, all alone. Hate myself but there's nothing wrong.
Now Wednesday, we meet again! You walk right by me with your special friend.
Now Thursday, comin' down. You better catch my love before it hits the ground.

Cause I, I felt like a man! Darlin' I cannot understand.
I was just waiting to come back inside, but you puked in your hands.
And you murdered the night, murder the night.
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Know
Darlin' your kinda love is like a diamond ring.
You grab it with your hands or it's gone for good.
Darlin' your kinda love says a whole lotta things.
About having your words heard, and then understood.

But when there was love, you were the first to know.
But now I see the little things and I'm aware I gotta go.
Cause,
I Dont Wanna Know.

Help me out little sister and give me a hand.
You're leaving me behind, now I understand.

But when there was love, you were the first to know.
But now I see the little things and I'm aware I gotta go.
Cause,
I Dont Wanna Know.
Track Name: Leon Botstein Is Dead
Leon Botstein is dead.
Woah! He's hiding in the ceiling.
Leaon Botstein is dead.
Woah! He's losing all his feelings.

If you wanna catch it, I know what you can catch instead.
Goin' round Leon, you're just gonna wind up dead.

Leon Botstein's alive.
Woah! I saw him the theatre.
Leon Botsetins's alive.
Woah! If you wanna meet him.

If you wanna catch it, I know what you can catch instead.
Goin' round Leon, you're just gonna wind up dead.
Track Name: Aww Fuck It!
Oh Abigail!
You turn to speak without a sound.
Open up your mouth start to spit it out, your words make me hit the ground.
Oh Abigail!
You found me in a place with nothing to say.
Shooting from the hip, empty out a clip, why won't you go away?

But I keep feeling we have to understand why,
Our feelings won't go away.
And I keep thinking that I should give it a chance,
And maybe our stance will change.

Oh Alison!
You want another song so here's one for you.
Turn into a shout, vomit in my mouth!
You're gonna have to choose.
Oh Doireann!
I'm twisted up in every single way.
Vomit up my words, life is in a church.
Fall on your knees and pray!

But I keep feeling we have to understand why,
Our feelings won't go away.
And I keep thinking that I should give it a chance,
And maybe our stance will change.
Track Name: Love
Love has a funny name,
But it burns the same in your heart.
Yeah love has a dirty game,
But it feels the same at the start.

I tried to believe you but I can't just be only your dude.
Tried to believe you but I've never seen someone so new, just like you.

Love isn't new to me, baby, can't you see were through?
This love. No it ain't the same, it's just a game for you.

I tried to believe you but I told you, "I won't be your muse."
Tried to believe it but I've never seen someone so rude.
Just like you.

We tried to believe it but it can't just be only us two.
We tried to believe it but darlin' I think that were through.
Fuck you.

Love has a funny name but it burns the same in your heart.
Track Name: Your Name Is Jake
I heard a sound but at first it was far away.
Maybe it wasn't you, but I'm pretty sure it wasn't you.
I heard a tange with a singe of innocence.
I don't give a fuck cause I'm drinkin' alone anyway.

I don't know why but I think you got my attention.
Darlin' your shit is leaving me in suspension.

Cause all my friends are fighters,
and all your friends are fuckin lame.

So whats my name? Your name is Jake!

Fuck the law 'cause they ain't out to get me.
I'm just a loner with a pension for fuckin up!
You're a shit peice of shit with a face.
I'd write a song but you wouldn't care anyway.

I don't know why but I think you got my attention.
Darlin' your shit is leaving me in suspension.

Cause all my friends are fighters,
and all your friends are fuckin lame.

So whats my name? Your name is Jake!
Track Name: Nobody Knows (What I've Done)
'Cause when I get home to my baby,
She will see what I've become.
And the band will sing a jubilee,
'Cause nobody knows what I've done!
No nobody knows what I've done.
