From First To Last : Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has a Body Count

Teksty

1. SOLILOQUY

Hello World,
Suck the life from my voice
And breathe it back into yourselves


2. THE ONE ARMED BOXER VERSUS THE FLYING GUILLOTINE

..Kill the lights

Hello, ladies and gentlemen,
I'm glad you've graced me with your presence
You're in time to see me wrestle with my conscience
And staring in the si-si-si-silence

You see, I came to save the stage,
I hope I'm not too late
Passion called from back behind the curtain screaming,
"Sonny, this is urgent"

Fill these 50 persons with a purpose,
But don't just give it away
Inspiration isn't cheap these days,
You better make them earn it

You better make them earn it, make them earn it!
You better make them earn it, make them earn it!

Hello, ladies and gentlemen,
I'm glad you've graced me with your presence
You're in time to see me wrestle with my conscience
And staring in the si-si-si-silence

You see, I came to save the stage,
I hope I'm not too late
Passion called from back behind the curtain screaming,
"Sonny, this is urgent"
(x2)

How do I address a letter to my generation?
"Sonny", she said, "save yourself the postage"
How do I address a letter to my generation?
"Sonny", she said, "sing it in person"


3. NOTE TO SELF

Two roads... split off from here,
and my life goes running in opposite directions.
Exaggerating the barrier between who I am, and who I want to be.

I wanted to be that breath of fresh air,
When everything smelled so insincere.
But this taste still lingers in my mouth,
Deceit has ways of sticking around.
And I'm ready to disappear,
Vacation seems far, seems far from here.

Note to self: I miss you terribly.
This is what we call a tragedy.
Come back to me, come back to me, to me.
Note to self: I miss you terribly.
This is what we call a tragedy.
Come back to me, back to me, to me.

I can feel my mind, wandering again.
Into where I don't know, and will I ever get home?
Time starts moving, faster than I can.
And I'm sick of this scene,
I need a break from routine.

I can feel my mind, wandering again.
Into where I don't know, and will I ever get home?
Time starts moving, faster than I can.
And I'm sick of this scene,
I need a break from routine.

Two roads... split off from here,
and my life goes running in opposite directions.
Exaggerating the barrier between who I am, and who I want to be.

Which part of me is lost? I feel so close, and yet I am so far.
Which part of me is lost? I feel so close, and yet I am so...far!...


4. I LIKED YOU BETTER BEFORE YOU WERE NAKED ON THE INTERNET

It's amazing what you'll find when you just open your eyes
Sometimes love can leave you blind
But still you try to cover all the lies
And ignore all the signs
Sometimes love can leave you blind

What I thought was a certainty
Has left me
Spinning in circles again

Comparing to the last time that we had spoke
It seems to me that you're not happy
Like you used to be

To you I'm like a flavor that wouldn't last
You took one bite and spat me out real fast

And now this mark remains and will never ever go away
And now this mark remains and will never ever go away
And now this mark remains and will never ever go away


5. FEATURING SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE WORDS

Words don't seem to come so easy
When I need them oh so badly
Here's to playing tug of war with my vocal chords
Maybe I can give this another
Shot or sing about a broken
Heart, or imitate the way it feels
If this is happening for real

This distance seems closer
When you shove it in my face
This moment has left me with nothing else to say
I'm losing my interest with these empty pages
They're torn, and have frayed edges
This torn, dusty book
Is bothered by my rusty eye and I can't see
No, I can't breathe
Put me on the next page outta here
To live forever on this paper
Capture this void and fill it with the frenzy in my voice

Killing time by drawing faces that stare back at me from the margins
In a sea of 8 and a half by elevens
I'm drowning in...
Treading through run on sentences
And sinking into empty text
I'll swallow the salt
And spit a few dry words out

This distance seems closer
When you shove it in my face
This moment has left me with nothing else to say
I'm losing my interest with these empty pages
They're torn, and have frayed edges
This torn, dusty book
Is bothered by my rusty eye and I can't see
No, I can't breathe
Put me on the next page outta here
To live forever on this paper
Capture this void and fill it with the frenzy in my voice

No matter what I say, no matter what I write here,
I'm sick of always looking at this page with a blank stare
You never seem to know, and they never seem to tell you
Words don't always come as easily as you might want them to (x2)

Throw this paper into fire and take me with it
Just take me with it
Throw this paper into fire, into fire, yeah
Throw this paper into fire, into this fire
Throw this paper into fire and throw me with it
Just throw me with it


6. EMILY

Smiles and her laughter
It's the only thing that I've been waiting for a time
Regardless of our distance and our hope...grows greater
Trapped by pretty eyes and letters for all time
...the only thing that I've been waiting for.

I hope it's something worth the waiting
'Cause it's the only time that I ever feel real
Thunder storms could never stop me
'Cause there's no one in the world like Emily

She's simple yet confusing
Her sparkling eyes make me weak at my words, they tremble
Days seem like years in this month of December
The winter coldens me for I have yet to sleep
And never will I give up trying 'cause you're everything to me

I hope it's something worth the waiting
It's the only time that I ever feel real
'Cause thunder storms could never stop me
'Cause there's no one in the world like Emily,
There's no one in the world like Emily.


7. SECRETS DON'T MAKE FRIENDS

This place is a bloodbath
And we won't be taken alive
We stand alone
Under fictitious skies

You were always my enemy carefully crafting my demise
You were always my enemy carefully crafting my demise
Our hearts beat strong under fictitious skies
You were always my enemy, you suck the life out of me

Your words are deadly weapons
Killing me, destroying me
Your words are deadly weapons
Scatter my brains across the wall

You were my compass
Leading me to nowhere fast
Promises were lonely roads
I followed you down like a map (like a map, like a map)

You were always my enemy carefully crafting my demise
You were always my enemy carefully crafting my demise
Our hearts beat strong under fictitious skies
You were always my enemy, you suck the life out of me

Your words are deadly weapons
Killing me, destroying me
Your words are deadly weapons
Scatter my brains across the wall

Fuck you
Secrets don't make friends
Secrets don't make friends
Secrets don't make friends
Secrets don't make...

Your words are deadly weapons
Killing me, destroying me

Your words are deadly weapons
Killing me, destroying me
Your words are deadly weapons
Scatter my brains across the wall.

Your words are deadly weapons (Secrets don't make friends)
Killing me, destroying me
Your words are deadly weapons (Secrets don't make friends)
Scatter my brains across the wall

Secrets don't (Secrets don't make friends) make friends
(Secrets don't make friends)
Secrets don't (Secrets don't make friends) make friends
(Secrets don't make friends)


8. POPULACE IN TWO

Your memories will always haunt me like a ghost
To put it nicely I hope you choke
A poet of sorts but I'm not enough to give you an eyesore
It's hard to swallow with your hands around my throat
I'm sick and tired of, I told you so
You can call me at home but I know better than to answer the phone
When people ask about the last time that we spoke
I let the stitches do the talking for the most part
And I leave out how you threw a lamp through my front window

Just burn the photographs and bury all the pages that we knew
In short this is a long goodbye to unexpecting you
(x2)

Even if I spend 2004 listening to Morrisey in my car
I'm better off alone than I would be in your arms
(x2)
In your arms
I'm better off alone
(In your arms)

Just burn the photographs and bury all the pages that we knew
In short this is a long goodbye to unexpecting you
(x2)

Just burn the photographs and bury all the pages that we knew
In short this is a long goodbye to unexpecting you
(x2)

To unexpecting you
To unexpecting you
(Just burn the photographs) To unexpecting you
(Bury your memories) To unexpecting you


9. KISS ME, I'M CONTAGIOUS

I break hearts like the west was won
(They call me the rattlesnake)
Baby, I look like an outlaw
(Like an outlaw, baby)
Play poker all day at the saloon
(You cheating bastard)
I'll get you in the saddle soon, oh yeah

[Chorus:]
We won't back down
(bang, bang, guns go bang)
From a fight
(bang, bang, guns go bang)
90 paces west
(bang, bang, guns go bang)
At noon we draw to, we draw to death
We draw to death
We draw to death
We draw to death
We draw to death, oh yeah

There was a man from way back west
(Desperado ain't got shit on me)
He took 12 rounds straight to the chest
(That's two six-shooters to be exact)
At night this town remains awake
(For they keep their eyes wide open)
In terror of the rattlesnake

I bite it, but I don't light it
(This town ain't big enough for the both of us)
I'll use the rope and I'll ride her
*(I'll rip that ass)
Two barrels and a whole lot of bang
And when I'm done with it,
This town will never be the same

[Chorus]

Can I touch your legs?
Do I make you sweat?
(x6)


10. MINUET

(Instrumental)


11. RIDE THE WINGS OF PESTILENCE

Hiding behind the shadows
I'll be waiting in the dark
to drive this blade straight through your heart
I'll drag your body to the car
as blood races down my arm
I think everyone will wonder where you are (tonight)

I'll hide you in my walls
your body will never be found
I'll wear your skin as a suit
Pretend to be you, your friends will like you more than they used to

Dear diary my teen angst bullshit has a body count (count)
I believe it's 6 going on 7 now (7 now)

I've been dreaming about you
in a pool of your own blood
with your eyes gouged out
by the work of my thumbs
the scent of your insides
from under the floorboards
the perfect perfume
for settling a score.

I'll hide you in my walls
your body will never be found
I'll wear your skin as a suit
Pretend to be you, your friends will like you more than they used to
Pretend to be you, your friends will like you more than they used to

Ride the wings of....
Ride the wings of....
*Ride the wings of....
Ride the wings of pestilence!
Ride the wings of pestilence!
Ride the wings of pestilence!
Ride the wings of pestilence!
*Ride the wings of pestilence!
*Ride the wings of pestilence!
*Ride the wings of pestilence!
*Ride the wings of pestilence!


12. DEAD BABY KICKBALL

Girl, you must think that I'm crazy
But we all know you's a cutie
and you're all like, "Nuh uh boys don't wanna get with me"
Girl, please
I can see right through those
fake colored contacts
Your eyes ain't blue, I bet that hair's held by glue

Hey shorty, why you playing games
These games were played, the rules were made,
You dropped the names and now you got nothing to say

Hey shorty, why you playing games
These games were played, the rules were made,
You dropped these names and now you got nothing to...

It's like an episode of cheaters
and I'm that dude with the gun
Hiding cameras in your bedroom
Girl, I know what you've done
I might be your baby's daddy
But that don't mean shit
When every dude on the block
Knows that you're a trick

Hey shorty, why you playing games
These games were played, the rules were made,
You dropped the names and now you got nothing to say

Hey shorty, why you playing games
These games were played, the rules were made,
You dropped these names and now you got nothing to...

Uh, I'm not a rockstar but I still tend to rock hard
You trying to play games tease and trying to keep me rock hard
Trying to make me slap you and see me in the cop car
Catch me speeding in stock cars expecting me to stop hard
You playing with the mind of the craziest kind
Telling me how much you love me when I know that you're lying
You must be snorting lines if you think that I'm crying
You manipulating, backstabbing, cold, and kaniving
I went from last to first but this is first to last
I'm the major league playa you can kiss my ass, trick

(I like this...)
...Part! Shake it like a salt shaker (x4)

Fuck (x4)
Fuck you (x13)


13. FAILURE BY DESIGNER JEANS (BONUS TRACK)

I'm a mess of insecurities
Attention starved with a narcissistic twist
Don't you think that I'm amazing?
Please tell me I'm worth dating
I have every reason not to leave home today (home today)
Home today (home today)

Mirror, mirror, how amazing is my figure?
Your visitors they fall apart before my pictures
Mirror, how amazing is my figure?
Your visitors they fall apart before my pictures

Please don't believe my words are lacking honesty
I'll be the boy you can't resist
You'll be the tenth girl on my list
I'll write your name upon my chest
These less than three's will never rest
Please don't believe my words are lacking honesty

Mirror, mirror, how amazing is my figure?
Your visitors they fall apart before my pictures
Mirror, how amazing is my figure?
Your visitors they fall apart before my pictures

You'll be the last girl on my list
Action's just a click away
These things photographs could never say
(x2)

Please don't believe my words are lacking honesty
(You'll be the last girl on my list
Action's just a click away
These things photographs could never say)
(x2)
