Life in this town makes it hard to see Things that are right in front of me . remember me? You’re no longer the one I need I find it hard to tell that I’m fine with the angel But silence isn’t fooling anyone THE RING SONG Me and the ocean. but not a cheat I think it’s safe to say that I get carried away And liars aren’t fooling anyone Forgive me if I’m out of line I can’t control myself sometimes I think I’m sick but I might be well I think I’m wrong but it’s hard to tell I think I feel like I never fell for you Hey sweet Cassandra. Something for nothing Yeah. I don’t see no ring on these fingers Love in this town – it’s like a joke I must’ve had fun ‘cause now I’m broke Down by the ocean.. drop and roll you’re on fire I’m stingy with words All binge. no purge You put the broke in broken hearted You put the art in retarted UNCONDITIONAL I’ve spent my whole life surrounded And I’ve spent my whole life alone I wonder why I never wondered why The easiest things are so hard I just want love I just want.. me and the sea I don’t think so.. walk by and see All these people – they look so happy to me What if all I want in this world Turned out just to be an honest girl? Turned out just to make of me an honest man? Oh yeah? Well.PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT All this time I should have known One of these days you’d follow me home Mess up my room and proceed to tempt me And no matter how good I am you learn to resent me Stop. something for nothing ’Cause I’m a beggar and a chooser I’m accused and accuser But nothing’s unconditional I hold the whole world accused And I’ve only got myself to blame OUT OF LINE Hey sweet Eliza. I don’t think it was meant to be Take me off somewhere cold Gradually just growing old And someday maybe make of me an honest man Yeah? Well... remember me? I’m a liar..

talk all day I’m laughing my life away I’m staring at the sun again Till everything’s fading It’s like What if What if What if a swollen summer I’m getting dumber? I’m just in denial? they come and cop my style? Downtown in the clear All I know is nothing ever changes here And I know there’s no excuse and no defense But my summertime never ends .TYRANT Every time you come around There’s another bouquet for me A corsage of promises and I am pinned Like a butterfly on a card Now I’m naked and I’m scarred And you’re so perfect to me Slide the pain with a tongue like a needle Violent eyes but hands like a steeple And every word’s shot down my throat A face like an iron fist That I could never resist I learned it all by rote Words of wisdom. now you’re all I’ve got These noises in my head Just noises in my head If I could I’d drown them right out And bury all of these noises from your tyrant mouth You’re just a noise in my head I’ll drown you out and I’ll bury all the Noises from your hateful little mouth GIVE IN All I want is everything Everything that I’ll ever be Everyone that’s coming for me Nothing happens and everything is changed All I want is everything to stay the same Will you give in? All I want is everything All the words and the truths between Everything you’re keeping from me I’ve been staring back in my eyes for a while I think they never stop moving All I want is everything All the things that you think of me All you’ve tricked yourself to believe SWOLLEN SUMMER Downtown in the shade Staring at the sunshine in my face Telling me to come and hide. from your tyrant mouth I’m stuck just like a pig Roasting in your eyes I’ll believe anything that you want You better teach me how to live ‘Cause you make me want to die You took it all. talk. come and play I’m telling you the sun never goes away And all I do is talk.

I see red. too many thumbs Something wicked this way comes The best time I ever had Waiting around for something bad Fearless And I know that’s why you love me. chica So fearless This is what it’s all about Take me in and eat me out Pins and needles in my arms Lucky eyes and lucky charms NO BRAKES No brakes this time I slit the line But if you want me. my only appeal What if you’re here to save me from this? If I disappear will I be missed? I never know what I should do Can I leave it up to you? No brakes. over the wheel My only chance. it’s all in my head Out of my hands. I swear I never meant for this Don’t look at me that way It was an honest mistake Sometimes I forget I’m still awake I f*** up and say these things out loud FEARLESS Too many fingers. I see red . it’s cool You can take me for a fool I could slow down if you want me to But just for you Carry me home.. just you Something to move me instead of this Rolodex in my head I never meant anything I said When I see red. it’s true no brakes.AN HONEST MISTAKE People – they don’t mean a thing to you They move right through you just like your breath But sometimes I still think of you And I just wanted you to know My old friend.. put me to bed Leave me alone.
