Track Name: You're Right But I Don't Care
To my eye, you're instant frontal brain hit
And i tried, but I never could see you fit

you're a butterfly landing on a dog shit
well I, am too cheap for such a headsplit

on and on and on, i spit in your ear
you cry but I keep turning around in spheres


I know you're right, I know you're right, I know you're right,
but i don't care


i'll fly to whatever seems easy
i'm a guy with no interest in reality

i'm awake awake but i'm hiding in my bed
it's all lie, back away before the bloodshed

it's too late too late to bring me back from the dead
because I will love you whatever you said

I will love you whatever you said.

Wave at me Shout at me

It's not like if had a choice to stay or go away, you know i'm no idiot, i wouldn't last a day

I know you're right, I know you're right, I know you're right,
but i don't care
Track Name: Forever Awesome !
Ginny lost her shoe, yeah it's true
she's runnin in such hurry
Tell me what you think, why do you think
she's gone crazy
Where does she go, go, go...

Nelly doesn't speak, her head is lost
down the tiny light
Everybody says that her days
are darker than your nights

Let us dance in the magical world
of forever awesome
You're all my best friends

But don't scratch too much, don't ask, just give it a whirl
or you'll reach the deadliest boredom
They don't catch needy hands

Harold doesn't stink, doesn't think
he seems to have a dead soul
Will he even blink if we make him drink
all of the punchbowl
Maybe he'll jump, jump....

Jared acts all rebel, but we know inside
he's just a big hole
drowns himself in ink, so he doesn't sink
so he doesn't fall


As the vapors of sorrow rise up gently from the otherwise so healthy looking soil, nobody seems to see the problem.

Grown-ups, well they are hiding behind their white teeth, hidden behind their white curtains hanging on their white walls a few steps back their white fences.

And they don't want to see. They don't want me to see. We need someone to put us back on our feet, so we can reach out to the hopeful clouds.
Track Name: Lather
The scar is hard, hard as leather
no matter the makeup you wear
Could you get what lies under?
Do you close your eyes when you stare

you kept your right hand free, and lift me with the other
I took you to the sea
and lathered



Do the walls seem tilted to you?
Or is it me that had enough
wrap a blanket on my shoulder
where the old flame needs to smother

Tame the blazing light, that blinds and burns alike
Take me to the sea



you kept your right hand free, and lift me with the other
I took you to the sea



I enjoyed wasting my time with you
I enjoyed wasting my time some more
Track Name: Headache
The first mistake I ever made was believing in your clever banter,
and it was the first of many.
You wrapped your claws around my head and cut me off of my brothers,
I couldn't even feel in me.

Vampirize.


The first day I could open my eyes, and get wiser and rise away from the chains you put me into,
was the start of your ending.
I've been through fire and back, with a core of ice to finally see you the real way, you won't ever burn me again, you lost, you lost, you lost
and I have flown. Away

Never again

There's almost nothing left
Now all I get from you is a headache
You're not my friend
All I get from you is a headache.
All there's left of you is a headache.
Track Name: Since You're A Shark
Come here, i won't bark
Hit me, leave a mark

Love me, in the dark


Eat me,

Since you're shark


Humiliate me

Make me feel bad


Love me, since you're a shark
Track Name: Why So Sad ?
Why so sad ?
Won't you answer the call answer me
From the inside, it will be fine
We will get down to it eventually yes we will
But in the meantime don't you make yourself worry
Why so sad ?
It will be fine it will be

We're small hands
Fingers twisting and twirling into each other
They know the way
Small hands,
Fingers twisting and twirling into each other
They know the way, they know how to tame the anger


What comes ahead, we don't know.
But it will be fine, I sure hope so
Why so sad ?
It will be fine it will be


Fingernails bow
You told me so
Relase your fist and go

We're small hands
Fingers twisting and twirling into each other
They know the way
Small hands,
Fingers twisting and twirling into each other
They know the way, they know how to tame the anger
Track Name: Bully
I'm walking around the playground, and they're all staring at me
I'm walking round the playground to have some fun and they all look
down on me

I'm riding my bike here in the alley and they all make fun of me
I'm riding my red and rusty bike here in the alley, and they all look down
on me

Well it's true that I need a friend, when they're all mean and I'm alone
Yeah it's true that I need a friend, but it doesn't mean that I want one

Don't you come nearby boy, don't you come nearby
Don't you come nearby, or I will make you cry
Time to say bye bye.
