Track Name: We're Not Good Men
The train is due,
My honey's at home and I know I love her,
This time I'm true,
I got a girl in the city that I can't decipher

We want it again so I told her one time,
I'm not a good man
I told her again, told her the last time
I'm not a good man

I told her again I told her one time,
I'm not a good man
I told her again, told the last time
I'm not a good man

Ridicule
Is all I fucking do
Track Name: Popsongs
I wanna be alive
I wanna see the life that you are living

I gotta see the light
I gotta get out of my room
Feeling like mold on the ceiling

My eyes are bone dry
From all the time that I've sat here thinking
Bout getting out and leaving

Take it all away
The down that I'm feeling
The heart that it's stealing

I feel like nothing

I gotta outside
Too much time is spent sitting and working
This life's fucking boring

Hop on the board outside
Cruise down White Oaks
But this town's fucking boring
Everyday's Monday morning

I wanna go downtown
See what is going down
But nothing is happening
And I cant stop laughing

What is this fucking place?
What is this fucking place
That I'm stuck in living
That I've parked my life in

I feel like nothing
Track Name: Brown Eyed Girls With Black Hair Stay
What am I, I ask myself
A machine I must confess
For just pushing you away
Left my heart wrapped on the shelf

Mutual friends we divy up
All the times you were enough
I'm just sick in my own way
Losing sleep bout every day

And I want you to know that I'm sorry

Brown-eyed girls with black hair stay
Teenage hearts; disaster days
Pouring bottles down the face
Leaving kisses on the drain

And I want you to know that I'm sorry
I've gone away
Track Name: Dig It Up
Sing it all
cos I love you
Scream it all
i love you

I'd do it again
I'll take you down to where I've been
The freaks and posh in animal skin,
The teenage wasps in Ottawa again

As long as I can see you again
See you again, I'll see you again

I live in shoebox,
6 feet under
Im in your backyard
In the bunny grave

I wanna go home now,
I wanna say something
I wanna show you how
I love you

I love you

Dig it up,
Dig it up,
Dig it up
Track Name: Famous Men In Novels
This is not a stupid feeling of fantasy
Taking pictures in the alley for the world to see
You're not of this world
You're not regular
You just wanted to be like your gods on tv

This is just a cycle of human existence
Narcissim, pride and feeling neglected
Well time goes on
And we carry on
Famous men in books who one lived are forgot and gone

They're forgot and gone

I wouldn't say that I'm alright
I wouldn't say my life's important
I wouldn't say that I don't try
I live it anyway

I wouldn't say that I'm alright
I wouldn't say my life's important
I wouldn't say that I don't try
I live it anyway
Track Name: Staring
109 it's the time
Hop on and go for a ride
Bus is packed to the front
Pushing my way to the back
Blast off
Here we go
Surfing on people's bodies
Eyes lazer beamed
You think I don't know

I see you staring baby
I'm staring right back at you

Ride along,
Ride asphalt
Turning, I hope I don't fall
I seek her head in the crowd
But she just keeps looking down
Green eyes, purple thighs
A single second demise
You think that you're slick
Jean jacket, pseudo chic
The bus halts, final chance
We catch another glance
Empty out like sardines
And then she smiles at me
Track Name: Saturday
You won't ever stay down
With a blithered tongue, you meltdown
Didn't you skip to the syntax man
On the television juvie shiv brands
Someone's gonna put it to you
American in plain view

Take it all down
On Saturday

You speak a whole lotta hate
No comfort in your world today
Hopefully someone's gonna slip up now
Better off without your so called help
Someone's gonna put it to you
American in plain view

Take it all down
On Saturday
Track Name: Something In My Head
How you feeling?
Are you feeling good?
Something in my head
Oh, you're better off dead
Track Name: Heart To Heart Interview
I can be the man you need to see
When you need to see him most
Blithered tongues, they wrapped around your heart
Let me cut the feeling loose
Track Name: Friends Not Family
Meet you halfway by the comic store
Blissfully bored and walking till our feet are sore

Apparation, summertime
You left me out to dry
Oh we spent every day
Laughing in the summer haze

Say goodnight
You are not my friend

Bend back, fall away
Friends not family
Track Name: Shimmer
Action on the basement steps
She took a lunge he took a left
Sweep of the leg, the knife goes down
Pungent slip snip, horrible sound
Maria your body's cold
Maria your body's cold
He's not the man you thought you knew no
He's not the man you were married to oh

Shimmer, shimmer
Shimmering babe

Maria your body's cold
Maria your body's cold
Maria your body's cold
Maria your body's cold
Track Name: Waiting Room
Life is sitting a waiting room
Waiting for your bed

No one can see me now
No one can hear me now

Life is sitting a waiting room
Waiting for your bed

na na na na na

(Do what you want to)
And when you're feeling like you've got no choice and running out of time
(Do what you want to)
When the friends you have are slipping into silence and you're dying
(Do what you want to)
Life itself is meaningless without a sense of time


Life is sitting a waiting room
Waiting for your bed

No one can see me now
No one can hear me now

Life is sitting a waiting room
Waiting for your bed

na na na na na

(Do what you want to)
When you're feeling like you've got but really you wont try
(Do what you want to)
When the feelings that you had for who you loved just start to dry
(Do what you want to)
When nothing that you wanted turned out the way you tried
Track Name: Yearsong [Bonus Track]
Falling fast sideways
Crash, sever, bleed
You'll never love me
Like I love you

It's a state of mind
Body and state
Carry on like me
Doomed anyway

We're lives dawned high beams
Don't turn away
Don't think it's surprising
I'm here to stay

They hide behind screens
Show your best face
Enticed with possibility
I'm here to stay
