I Can't Handle Change
Hangin' out where I don't belong is nothing new to me. I get tired and I get sick and then I lose the strength to leave. I can't handle change. Nothing I do is ever good. Nothing I do is ever good enough. Leave me alone. I wanna go home now. I can't help but repeat myself, "I know it's not your fault." Still lately I begin to shake for no reason at all.
Duck or Ape
You drag your bones accross the earth like everyone who dragged theirs first. A speech, a prayer, a stone to read, a wooden case for worms to eat. Corpses met with Hallmark afterthoughts... Apparently they're sorry for the loss. It's sad but true and tough for you. Your brain's synaptic buzz is through. Exist to die and still live on to haunt the ones who done you wrong. 20 grams of weight and the soul's escaped you're coming back a duck or an ape.
Heart for Brains
Heart for brains you should have known. Take a seat with the weak but stand up for me. Mercilessly slaughtering... When the sick feed the strong, the pack marches on. Life's hard when you're soft but you've got our love. Shit for brains you're living proof that it pays to be hard on those around you. But the wolves who gaurd their wounds, hide their limps and their health are all eaten too. Life's hard when you're soft but you've got our love.
Baby Bride Rag
I know you may not be feeling the same way I am. Sweetheart you're mine and now our life is all planned. Nobody needs you the way you know I do. Forget what they say let's start our life anew. Oh darling I'm not so sure about our hearts aligning. At 16-years-old could this just be bad timing? Puppies pining? Listen to me sweetheart you are nothing when we're apart. I can promise you this when we split the town you won't be missed.
Ronnette my dear don't ever disappear. Do what you want as long as you stay here. I need you now. I love you so much more than you could know. The Christmas kids were nothing but a gift and love is a tower where all of us can live. You'll change your name or change your mind and leave this fucked up place behind but I'll know. Appearing unsightly with devils inside me... If you ever try to leave me I'll find you Ronnie. I'm leaving, Phil, I'm leaving now. I'm going to escape but you won't know how or where to find me when I'm gone. I'd drink myself to death inside this prison cell. So get me out of here. You'll change your name or change your mind and leave this fucked up place behind but I'll know.
Just a Fan
Please understand I'm just a fan and god it sounds bad when I put it like that. Reach in my chest and do your best to locate a heart in this pitiful mess. Lettering in bold on a blood-stained note... I'm just a lonely soul. Everybody knows when you suck it shows. And that's just how it goes. But I'm lucky to be here cause I know it's good that we fit just like we should.
I guess that I'm the suffering kind, scaring away anyone who might find one rotten piece, not often seen, locked in a van an unable to scream.
Lettering in bold on a blood-stained note... My love is not a joke. Everybody knows when you suck it shows and that's just how it goes. But I'm lucky to be here cause I know it's good that we fit just like we should.
