“Possessions never meant anything to me
I’m not crazy
Well that’s not true, I’ve got a bed, and a guitar
And a dog named Bob who pisses on my floor
That’s right, I’ve got a floor
So what, so what, so what?
I’ve got pockets full of kleenex and lint and holes
Where everything important to me
Just seems to fall right down my leg
And on to the floor
My closest friend linoleum

Poor report cards, life is just a ball
Hi-top chucks and bubblegum and oh my gosh
I’d love to love em all
They’re so cool, their styles never cramped
Too much of everything and everyone is amped
Well don’t get hot and bothered
Listen, I know I got my problems
I also know just what this goofy world needs
Yummy yummy punk rock girls
I wish they were all punk rock girls”

And practiced all the things I would say
But she came over

I know she’s playing with me
That’s okay ’cause I’ve got no self-esteem”

Hey Miss Murder can I?
Make beauty stay if I,

We’re left to wonder why
He left us all behind.”

Just like the hearse, you die to get in again
We are so far from you
Burning on just like a match you strike to incinerate
The lives of everyone you know
And what’s the worst you take (worst you take)
From every heart you break (heart you break)
And like the blade you stain (blade you stain)
Well, I’ve been holding on tonight
What’s the worst that I can say?
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight”

“Strollin’ to the party like my name is El ninio
Well I’m hangin’ out drinking in the back of an El camino
As a kid, was a skid and no one knew me by name.
I trashed my own house party cause no body came.
Well I know I’m not the one you thought you knew back in high school
Never going, never showing up when we had to.
Attention that we crave don’t tell us to behave,
I’m sick of always hearing act your age.
I don’t want to waste my time
Become another casualty of society.
I’ll never fall in line
Become another victim of your conformity
And back down.”

But it all feels old.
Its a good life
That’s what I’m told.
It all just feels the same
And my high school: it felt more to me
Like a jail cell, a penitentiary.
My time spent there
It only made me see
That I don’t ever want to be like you.
I don’t want to do the things you do.
I’m never gonna hear the words you say
Cause I don’t ever wanna.
I don’t ever want to be.
You don’t want to be just like you
What I’m sayin’ is this is the anthem
Throw all your hands up
You. don’t want to be you”

I would choke on the rinds, but the lack thereof would leave me empty inside.
Swallow my doubt, turn it inside out,
Find nothing but faith in nothing.
want to put my tender
Heart in a blender,
Watch it spin round to a beautiful oblivion.
Rendezvous, and I’m through with you.
I burn, burn like a wicker cabinet.
Chalk white and oh-so-frail.
I see our time has gotten stale.
The tick-tock of the clock is painful, all sane and logical.
I want to tear it off the wall.
I hear words and clips and phrases,
I think sick like ginger ale.
My stomach turns and I exhale”

“It’s alright to tell me what you think about me
I won’t try to argue or hold it against you
I know that you’re leaving you must have your reasons
The season is calling and your pictures are falling down
The steps that I retrace the sad look on your face
The timing and structure did you hear he fucked her?
A day late a buck short I’m writing the report
On losing and failing when I move I’m flailing now
And it’s happened once again
I’ll turn to a friend
Someone that understands
Sees through the master plan”

“Do you have the time to listen to me whine
About nothing and everything all at once
I am one of those
Neurotic to the bone
No doubt about it
Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up
I think I’m cracking up
Am I just paranoid?
Or am I just stoned”
