Nature is a terroristGod is mean with thisAnd I ain’t no optimistBut I’ll be all smiles tonight.
All Smiles lyrics
Don’t talk they whisper in their earThey mouth paradigm dearSee the thought, hear the auctioneerThey bargain on your time, dear.
Auctioneer lyrics
Hang down your head just like Tom Dooley,Poor boy, you know you never once fooled me.You put your trust in the thought that grace was on your sideIt’s such a beautiful day to die.
Burgandy lyrics
Now the whisky’s unforgivingIt burns right on downThat’s right, it’s a livingBut it ain’t worth a dime.
Captain's Arrival lyrics
Here comes Paul Revere with a broken reactionWith his latest brand of beerFor his newest fixed attractionsIf the overhead’s over our headIn this state of stale airWe can pick up from anywhereAnd incorporate in DelawareBut remember all the things you reassessed through your godWill someday be repossessed by the mob.
Clear Channel lyrics
I’m not a poet, nor a prophet, though I dream from time to timeI’m an artist of illusion, and I sketch a strange designSo don’t pay me with respect, just pay me with attentionAnd when I bounce a check, don’t forget that I had mentioned thatI’m mad at someone, I’m mad at someone.
Did a Verse End lyrics
Now morning hangs over the engines of timeThe streets flood with desolationBut the one I love, she clasps her tiny hands around meAnd everything under the sun.
Everything Under the Sun lyrics
I tapped out time on a bottle of rhymeI watched you side-step across the thin-laced lineBoth foot for foot, both fake with the feelTwo forgotten myths, both Achilles heelsSo how can I saySo how can I ever run away.
Fortunate lyrics
Well, I hurried down to the stationWith drunk bags and a sober smileBut this tip-worthy elationIt only lasts for a whileIt's a temporary medicationYeah, it's medicine for the poisoned vial.
Given Signs lyrics
I'm gonna die somedayThat's all that you never can sayYou can listen close to meOr just ignore my pleaBut either way I'm gonna die someday.
Gone Dyin' lyrics
Heaven help meI don't believe in manNever spoke to godAnd the devil won't shake my hand.
Heaven Help Me lyrics
See i don't believe in youBut i want you to feel that i doHow can you care whenFrom way over thereYour sure taking your sweet time toSo this is the way we movekick off your sunday shoes.
How to Loselyrics
Your momma don't knowAnd your daddy don't get itI'm up on the stage singingDon't you forget itDon't touch me, I'm a live wireAnd I'll be singing this songTill these lines grow tired.
Indie Rockin' lyrics
Movie stars and waitresses, and fantasies and factsFriends in far off places that still
Talk behind my backNot even tellin it to themselvesThe dreams of common peopleYeah they're easily disturbedWell they're worthless and they're feebleStill getting their last word.

No one like you lyrics
Why don't I ever see any old punks?I guess they change their minds or dieBeaten by the greetings of "Enchanté"By the girls who read Oscar WildeNow I was always one of the serious sortBut I let the comics show me aroundI know I didn't laugh much but boy did he tryAnd all the time I'd be frightened by the sound.
Offstage Lines lyrics
When I was younger I used to get angry at the girlsThen I grew a little older and got angry at the worldFor a while I spent my time getting all pissed off at traffic lightsBut even that got boring you know it seemed so triteThese days I’m reserved to fulfill a quotaFrom a list I received from a man from Minnesota....I got it off the internet, it read....
Oklahoma lyrics
I have no money, but I can be cuteAnd I can be funnyIf you just grant me the time of yearI will changeAnd I will appear to beOh, any season, every reasonTo belongAnd I will stay for long enoughTill I have mySongTill I have my song.

Payback lyrics
Now the crowd is always fleetingAnd the minutes of the meetingWill be taken by a very shaky handIf you're not around when it's written downThey'll be taking all the laughter from the can.
Primetime lyrics
But a fight breaks outAnd all the innocent they hit the groundDon't look for me, I won't be anywhere to be found.
Sit Downlyrics
Pass that girl, cause she doesn’t seem to mind.Pass that what’s in your hand, cause we all need to kill some timeBetter get drunk quick, cause our ride is leaving soon,And maybe on that judgement day, I won’t be in the room.
The Crowd and I lyrics
Don’t want to die aloneA repeat offence, a vagabondI will serve my time andthen I’ll come for youI will make you mine in time I always do.
Vagabond lyrics
