Funny Turns 04:02
I’m not gonna be your friend I don’t want your compliments I want something real I’m kept up half the night I’m not in control of my life I’m grappling for the wheel Maybe I was moving too fast for you? I’m sorry but I can’t see you It’s too late My mind’s been erased by you I’m sorry but I can’t see you “Hypercondriactic” curse My headaches are cancer or worse Anti Lock Brake and reel I’m not going to be on time I’m already late for my life I’m gagging for appeal Maybe I was moving too fast for you? I’m sorry but I can’t see you It’s too late My mind’s been erased by you I’m sorry but I can’t see you Too late for ideas I’m out of luck and friends I could count on when things get tough I’m lost, can’t right my wrongs I know I’ve been difficult to love and hard to get along with I’m out of touch and basically fucked Just need to be held or loved by anyone Maybe I was moving too fast for you? I’m sorry but I can’t see you It’s too late My mind’s been erased by you I’m sorry but I can’t see you

Another opinion I’m treading a fine line between epiphanies and the worst example of mankind I want to be better than this, maybe the best If only to make myself more attractive to the opposite sex Sit on the bed So you can just shout at me Pull out the books on the shelf Pretend that you wrote them yourself Pick up the highlights Pick up the slack Too many exclamation marks could never hold you back Mama! Mama! It’s the end of the programme and if you’re not bored we can start over again Mama! Mama! It’s the end of the television era I’m hiding again Don’t tell me I have to go So terrified of all the girls just cutting off my clothes It’s not from the inside It’s not going in I’m into stranger things than this don’t ask me where I’ve been Right now it's all that I am looking for Think of the children Think of the young There’s plenty of Simpsons left to watch all the way from season one Mama! Mama! It’s the end of the programme and if you’re not bored we can start over again Mama! Mama! It’s the end of the television era Mama! Mama! Can you send me a postcard from the furthest away you can possibly get? Mama! Mama! It’s the end of the television era And it’s everywhere And I’m trying to fake it I got plenty of hair Tell me I’m gonna make it And it’s everywhere It’s in all of the papers If they even exist anymore Mama! Mama! It’s the end of the programme and if you’re not bored we can start over again Mama! Mama! It’s the end of the television era Mama! Mama! Can you send me a postcard from the furthest away you can possibly get? Mama! Mama! It’s the end of the television era And it’s everywhere And I’m trying to fake it I got plenty of hair Tell me I’m gonna make it And it’s everywhere It’s in all of the papers If they even exist anymore

God Damn 03:28
God damn It’s been so long I should not have called you Should’ve left you alone But my mind had been made up I’m not gonna stay here at the back of the bus Oh Foss, won’t you tell me I’m enough? It’s like I’m lacking sense Way up in my head It’s like I’m lacking sense Maybe I’m dead? God damn It’s been so long I should not have called you Should’ve left you alone But my mind had been made up I’m not gonna stay here at the back of the bus Oh Foss, won’t you tell me I’m enough? It’s like you’re lacking somebody else It’s not that complicated You shouldn’t be sedated You’re blind You’re lacking only yourself It’s not that complicated You shouldn’t be sedated God damn It’s been so long I should not have called you Should’ve left you alone But my mind had been made up I’m not gonna stay here at the back of the bus Oh Foss, won’t you tell me I’m enough?

Hey little brother When are you going back? I can feel the shame like your new dad Hey little brother Where are you going now? Getting back in your car won’t change how You are so sweet But I cannot compete Little brother Oh I’ve been a fool But lately you’ve been so so cruel Don’t be so This is a real low Don’t be so cruel Hey little brother I hear it’s going round Twenty four hour bug or your breakdown? Hey little brother Don’t get so down It’s a problem I’m sure Jen will figure out You are so sweet But I cannot compete Little brother Oh I’ve been a fool But lately you’ve been so so cruel Don’t be so This is a real low ‘cause we are but one and I feel we are coming undone Where’s our mother? Oh I want a life But you won’t let me go Don’t be so This is a real low Don’t be so damn cruel

Yes Men 03:49
I don’t really want to face the facts But I’m wasting my life on this track I don’t really want to know your name I just want to be employed again Lunacy, Lunacy I have to tell you Honestly, honestly Do you feel pregnant? Cannot breath, cannot breath What have you done to me? I don’t really want to face the facts But I’m wasting my life on this track I don’t really want to know your name I just want to be employed again What can I offer your company? Undiagnosed A.D.D This man’s a measure of anxiety And I tell you I don’t work for free Don’t work for free Won’t work for free Don’t work for free But in the end I’m gonna be okay! It’s not the case for many my age But we all die the same…

I'm Dead 03:53
I’m dead in my bed Come to life some, but not all of the time Get ahead Read a book Easy now Watch as he strikes venom right into her heart And then she falls in love with smallest of parts Beta is monetarily in the red Embody it No choice I’m already him I can never take her where she wants She has to put up with my adolescence I could be more productive Premium courses in being cost effective I can never be who she wants Drive my car to a bridge Throw myself off At least the diesel’s cheaper at Asda Feel faint chest pain Let him die over and over tonight Then again Multiply? It’s easy how Let’s have a kid Get high on the meaning of life "Don’t call him Ben” Why not? “It might not be right!” Then what is wrong? “It’s best to not look ahead” But I’m a man I’m full of primal defence I can never take her where she wants She has to put up with my adolescence I could be more productive Premium courses in being cost effective I can never be who she wants Drive my car to a bridge Throw myself off At least the diesel’s cheaper at Asda Finally I’m faced with hard reality I’m drenched Need you to cover me I’m dead and sick of empathy I’m fragile to the core of this I’m plagued by the dichotomy I’m vexed by no ones honesty You’re dead and taste like semolina You’re wild and fuelled by tragedy I’m skilled within transparency I’m lost without any context You’re dead! There goes my innocence Your concepts are not feminist Be brave, become your heroin “I’m gay! Like everyone these days…” You’re cursed to be a 'Norman Door’ I can’t open up I can never take her where she wants She has to put up with my adolescence I could be more productive Premium courses in being cost effective I can never be who she wants Drive my car to a bridge Throw myself off

Shame 03:53
I’ve never felt more ashamed of myself than right now I’ve never felt more ashamed of myself than right now I know it’s really not up to me But I have to have my say I am not ready to be this happy Summon the courage I’ve got a thing to tell you about but it’s not going to be easy Oh I’ve done something wrong But you’re going to need to remain calm I’ve never felt more ashamed of myself than right now I’ve never felt more ashamed of myself than right now I could be the bell of your ball Someone to dance with for a while But I never said I could do it all Summon the courage I’ve got a thing to tell you about but it’s not going to be easy Oh I’ve done something wrong But you’re going to need to remain calm Summon the courage Ed you’ve got to tell her But it’s not going to be easy "Oh Jen I can’t control myself! ‘cause I’ve been with somebody else" And it’s really not up to me It’s blunt and impersonal “Does your therapy really help? If you’re out of option maybe…why not try being happy?” I know you’re not one for words But what I needed You misheard I’m the dog who shit on the floor Summon the courage I’ve got a thing to tell you about but it’s not going to be easy Oh I’ve done something wrong But you’re going to need to remain calm Summon the courage Ed you’ve got to tell her But it’s not going to be easy "Oh Jen I can’t control myself! ‘cause I’ve been with somebody else"

A Good Thing 03:44
I’ve been waiting a long time for somebody like you Strong, independent, good at Scrabble too Now you’re leaving me Don’t know what to do ‘cause I lost myself before I was twenty two I’ve been waiting all my life to realise The one thing I need I had Oh Em, isn’t that right? I’ve been waiting a long time for somebody like you Strong, independent, good at Scrabble too Now you’re leaving me Don’t know what to do ‘cause I lost myself before I was twenty two I was taking all the right advice at the time But my heart don’t know right from wrong when you’re on my mind I’ve been waiting a long time for somebody like you Strong, independent, good at Scrabble too Now you’re leaving me Don’t know what to do ‘cause I lost myself before I was twenty two And now we’re meeting here like I thought we would But I will break it off before you could Self-saboteur Oh I need you bear I’m a mess and I don’t care I’ve been waiting a long time for somebody like you Strong, independent, good at Scrabble too Now you’re leaving me Don’t know what to do ‘cause I lost myself before I was twenty two

It’s like I’m living with a true romantic He got it wrong again Oh man he's so annoying Cuts right to her feelings It’s like he does it to himself Right when she needs him It’s like he does it to himself Walls up the reason Well lately I’ve known, and maybe I should go get some bereavement I know why I am my weakness I know why It’s like I’m living with a true romantic He’s burnt dinner again Can’t look away as he tries to avoid her His mother sure misses him It’s like he does it to himself Right when she needs him It’s like he does it to himself Walls up the reason Well lately I’ve known, and maybe I should go get some bereavement I know why I am my weakness I know why It’s like he does it to himself Right when she needs him It’s like he does it to himself Walls up the reason It’s like he like he’s governed by his health Right when you’re bleeding It’s like he’s always by himself Oh what a weird thing Why doesn’t he just ask for help? I’d like to teach him I see him struggle by himself He’s such a weakling It’s like he does it for the pain Right in the feeling It’s like he does it to himself What a strange thing

Weirdo Years 03:27
It’s ancient and predictable Too smart to be happy and too dumb to be a success Mum’s done her best and raised you wrong Backbone like a stick and a head filled with Jungian slips Music’s a terrible conduit for serious themes like dying alone with no peace What an ironic end to thee I think Cry while I try and sleep Wish I had drowned in my dreams Am I chasing that one thing I’m not allowed? You might love me but you sure don’t like me right now What I am striving for is more or less truth in myself Gonna get your goat eventually How can I be a man this week? Weirdo years far from complete I’m grappling for reality It’s "art through adversity” Dad’s been far too kind to me God damn, I’m bored by my own speech! A privileged and passive life Some say I’m barely alive What does it mean to be a man this week? Couldn’t tell you even if I knew The truth’s lost on piss ants like you Am I chasing that one thing I’m not allowed? You might love me but you sure don’t like me right now What I am striving for is more or less truth in myself
