1. CASHING OUT

So it starts
With the kicking of your heart
The clenched fist of your will
If you'd love to rip this fucking place apart
I'm right behind you still
What will you do now?
What will people think
Now that Christians bought up hardcore
and Disney owns the punk scene?

Congratulations to you I guess
What else can I say
You're right I'm amazed
You show up ten years too late
You sure as hell won't stay

This isn't defamation
This is your orientation

(Whoa)
(Yeah)
(Whoa)
(Yeah)

Nothing says rebellion
Like buying in
Buy up all you can

Congratulations to you I guess
What else can I say
You're right I'm amazed
You show up ten years too late
You sure as hell won't stay
(You sure as hell won't stay)
(You sure as hell won't stay)

Congratulations to you I guess
What else can I say
You're right I'm amazed
You show up ten years too late

I'm selling you hope
I'm a chorus of change
There's one thing I know
That this shit can't be saved
This shit can't be saved

Cash out (Nothing says rebellion)
Cash out (Nothing says rebellion)
Cash out (Nothing says rebellion)
Cash out


2. CHYEAAAAA!

Cash out
Buy up all you can
Listen up
Listen up 'cause I've got a plan
Drag your ass to the top of the world
Jump off, jump off, jump off, jump off

Cash out
Buy up all you can
Listen up
Listen up 'cause I've got a plan
Drag your ass to the top of the world
Jump off, jump off, jump off, jump off

Cash out


3. ELVIS SAID AMBITION IS A DREAM WITH A V8 ENGINE

For so long I've been told
To give it up
To get a job and stop dreaming of what I'm dreaming of
Maybe if I was more like you
I'd have a single thing to say
I could look forward to
I'm not that same kid that I used to be
But I still got the same philosophy
If growing up is giving in
Then count on me to count myself out
Getting sued by my friends
Taught me that I can't pretend
That I'm immune to the rules of adult hood
I'd rather be a starving artist than a wealthy critic
I'd rather be a space cadet than bitter and jaded,
Brain dead and rewarded for it
Like everyone else my age is
I'm not the same kid
I'm not the same child
I may still be a prick
But at least I'm not a prick in denial

I wake up late just to miss the whole day
In this putrid spew that I call my bedroom
Putting on clothes just to take them off
In a couple of hours, why the fuck do I bother
I want to ride this train and hope it never stops
This is all I have
It's all I want


4. G.R.I.T.S.

You play your part
I'll play mine
The beggar and the mime
I'm getting good enough at feigning interest
But that still puts me here pretending to listen
And I'm not listening
You're the only one to talk to
But the last one that I want to
You bring me right back to the tailor
Resizing myself once again to fit into you
If I was smarter I would leave
If I was smart I'd do a lot of things
I'd get myself out of this stupid town
I'd save the world in a single bound
I'd put myself to better use
I wouldn't sit here writing about how
You're the only one to talk to.


5. GOING LOHAN

Oh, how I love bearing witness
To the ruthless competition
For the crowning and the title
Of the country's newest
Cutest little victims

So your life is a violent fire?
Burning out fast for the world to admire
Chew them up spit them out
Sell the photos to the press
You're the one that wanted
So tell me
How's it feel to be famous?

And you knew you were in love
The first time you ever eye-fucked the camera
But now you want space
Now you want privacy
I'm sorry darling, your life is public property.

Please let me worship the beauty
you were blessed with in post
While respecting boundaries
For another lonely brick on your road

So your life is a violent fire?
Burning out fast for the world to admire
Chew them up spit them out
Sell the photos to the press
You're the one that wanted
So tell me
How's it feel to be famous?


6. I'LL INOCULATE THE WORLD WITH THE VIRUS OF MY DISILLUSIONMENT

Every man lives by his own truth
And idiot can have faith and they all do
Awash in the filth of this ugly town
A chip on the shoulder
And the worst taste in my mouth
I thought it'd ease up as I got older
But the further I get the more I regret

The fashion of weakness
And the blissfully ignorant
Fucking each other to death
Who's lost in the shuffle
The children of assholes
Left to inherit the mess

Fuck what's real
Give me more material
Who needs art when we have all these commercials

Every man lives by his own truth
Any idiot can have faith
And they all do
It takes courage to stare into the face
Of complete meaninglessness
And accept it.

I see a vision of the future
Fueled by the blatant desire
To get the bad news first
Can I take it all now
This could be my chance to be a hero
But let's get real


7. YOU, ME, AND THE SIGNIFICANT OTHER

Whisper sweet nothing's into your ear
The kind I knew you'd always want to..
Oh wait but I was wrong
You sold me out so fast
Quickly inditing me into the shit that is your past

Today you said, you said it's over
At least I'll start aging slower
Oh well lemme guess
You're gonna fuck my friends, OD, and call me from the hospital

You don't need to tell me what you're always wanting
I think it's too obvious
The scraps across the floor of self indulgent nonsense
Feed the ego with the shit that you fear
But don't you count me out before I get
the last word in. Let's not pretend
I'll go without a fight again

Time and space
You said you wanted
Time and space
You said you needed
Time and space
I never knew you were a physicist

This time I swear I won't be gone
This time I know I won't be wrong


8. THE HE MAN WOMAN HATERS CLUB

It's so hard meeting girls I respect
In all these awful places
I'm never home for more than a week
The only people I see are either
Down on their luck
Drunken girls at the pub
Or the skanky almost hooker types
That dance at the club
And I always think
Why do I get dressed up to
Walk around saying what the fuck?
At the end of the day
It matters more what you do than what you say
I wish I knew some girls that aspired to be more than famous whores
As long as I'm on tour
I'll boldly go where every man has been before
A blonde in a short shirt no bra and a thong may be fun to make eyes at,
not bring home to your mom
I want a girl that can talk
I want a girl that can think,
Not someone I'm ashamed of every time that they speak
I want a girl that takes pride
In the strength of her mind
And even more so if the sentiment can be justified
At the end of the day
It matters more what you do than what you say
I wish I knew some girls who aspired to be more than famous whores
As long as I'm on tour It's any port in the storm


9. M.O.

Call off the dogs, pull back the search
I found him over here turning into dirt
This is one sick fuck we got on our hands now
I gotta get my friends and get them out of town
Whoever did this was a fucking pro
Smooth, smart, complex and composed
I swear I think I've seen this very same M.O.
If they knew I killed this monster I'd be joining them in hell soon

I've got this feeling in my gut I can't let go of
All signs point right to where you are I can't control it
Now you're onto me and if it has to be you or me
Then it sure as hell won't be me found six feet down

Everything everyone everywhere ends


10. A SOFT WAR

Tongues wrapped in a soft war


11. NOW THAT YOU'RE GONE

Today I saw the work of deaths ugly hand
Took the life of a man who lost his heart somewhere along the way
You stood so proud
You were so tall
Like you stood for anything at all
The last thing you said I'll never forget
We could buried the hatchet and started again
But you threw it all away and took your pride to the grave
Won't feel sorry now that you're gone
Just a memory distant and vague
I do what I can to keep it that way
I am now the bastard son of a man with a death wish and a gun
