(v1) What is t about you I can't get out of my head? What is it about you that keeps me awake in my bed? What drives me so mad is something I've never had What makes me so sad is thinking it might not happen. (Chorus) You're always on my mind and now I can't sleep at night You're always in my head It feels like my First Crush again. (v2) You drive me crazy in the best/worst way it's quite enslaving, but I don't want to get away My hands are tied, but I still want to hold you and even if I tried I couldn't stop wanting you. (chorus)
(v1) I'm just another silver medal you can put the pedal to the metal you expediate my broken heart I enjoy the ride because I lose before I start. (v2) At best I'm tarnished silver at worst I'm nothing at all Do you mind slowing down? cause we're going full throttle into a wall. (chorus) I'm the toy at the bottom of your chest blow off the dust and let's regress back to a time where we had such joy just another night with your last resort boy. (v3) I know I shouldn't piss and moan but how many nights are spent by the phone? I can't help but be annoyed that I'm always your last resort boy (chorus) (breakdown) (chorus)
(intro) I trusted my pencil in the dark to write the words coming from my heart but the words ran together and I forgot what I wanted to say. (v1) I wish I wrote that letter wrong but you'll be married before long we said I love you and I said goodbye. (chorus) I never had you but I lost you. I never knew you but I love you. It's 3 AM. and I can't sleep. Because I know.. You're gone. (v2) I'd cut my hair. I'd shave my beard. I'd wear nice jeans and I'd never swear. (chorus)x2
The joke got old cause it's been told too many times and now I can't find an audience for my bit and the one I had got sick, of the same old tired slapstick chorus: whoa, now I've got no place to go whoa, now I've completely lost control whoa, went too long running on dumb luck whoa, now I guess my time is up lost my place in line so now I'm trying hard to find somewhere to cut in and some to absolve me of my sins of avarice and sloth I though I had a head start and then I turned failing into an art chorus guess my time is up guess my time is up chorus
(Bouncing Souls cover) I don't know what other people see Or what they think is love But I know what it means to me I fall in love so easily And it's hard to let your guard down Something you never wanted to I gave you my love and if you turned away I guess I'd be screwed, but... I'm a hopeless romantic You're just hopeless Beer and wine does me fine but It doesn't always do When I get back up and dust off I always come back to you. I'm my own man with my own plan I can't do the things you want me to I'm kinda lazy and I kinda stink But I'll clean myself up for you
(v1) His head is in the gutter and his only friend is in his hand. Thinks back to days of thunder and wonders what went wrong. (c1) he's stuck in a rut of internet porn and smut cause minimum wage just can't afford those corner whores. (v2) He left his ambitions in a jar that he lost 4 years ago. He was gonna go far but he started out a little slow. (c2) He's down in the basement looking for a replacement for his trashy life of anger and resent. (v3) Left his lover in a car with a bullet in her head. Pushed it in the lake and has been on the run ever since. (c3) He said "I can't believe you felt sorry for me you judged me before you ever heard my story".
(v1) I don't wanna see your face or hear your voice around this place again your voice is the sound of a bullet piercing someones head You're a semen stain that won't come out of your mothers sheets so slit your wrist and shave your head and call yourself a marine. (chorus) I don't see a place in my life for you anymore you became what you set out to destroy. you can call yourself a man till your voice gets sore but inside you're just a little girl who wants to be a... (v2) Don't wana smell your breath or hear your voice within the air I breathe don't wana hear what I should do or what I should believe. The knife you hide behind is the knife that stabs you in the back and the life you claim to have is the life that you lack. (chorus) X2
(v1) So I've been told that I should never change. But then I'm told that I am ridiculous and strange. (prechorus) my mind is quite like a Half Way Written song Verse, chorus, verse and then the solo goes all wrong. (chorus) I am a catalogue of long lost parodies. I am an atom bomb of doubt and uncertainty. I am locked out of where common sense is the key. I am the definition of instability. (v2) So I was frowned upon for for having a mind of my own. So I was thrown in a ward that felt so much like home (prechorus) (chorus) (solo) (breakdown/chorus) (prechorus) (chorus)


Recorded live on tape by Russell at Eyemachine Recordings, during a show at Brain House on Marshall Ave. in Cincinnati, OH on July 9th, 2012. After having broken a crash cymbal, a ride cymbal was used in its place for the rest of the band's June-July tour; here it washes out a lot of the recorded audio from the show. The last two songs (???, "Maybe Next Year") from the show were corrupted and lost to time.
