1. IN YOUR FACE

 

i was barely legal looking for something evil to say and people to be antagonized

and you said to me it’s not a good strategy you should grow up try to act like you’re civilized

i explained that i just valued sincerity, you should go fuck yourself and then try to die

your were sick of it and called me an idiot and left town and said are you satisfied?

 

if i had what you hate i could get you break

no i’m not in your face i’m just getting by

if i had what you hate i could get you break

no i’m not in your face i’m just getting by

 

caught a beating but would not be defeated by any man who couldn’t see i was always right

all i said was i don’t mean to offend but you’re the dumbest motherfucker i’ve seen tonight

and though you know you wanna know everything i know it’s the way i roll you most admire

even if i never think of ever calling you out, am i ready for such a fight?

 

if i had what you hate i could get you break

no i’m not in your face i’m just getting by

if i had what you hate i could get you break

no i’m not in your face i’m just getting by

 

 

2. COME BACK

 

i was drained by the open market

and decaying in my old apartment

things were great but i failed regardless

i can’t explain it

 

there’s nobody around

to wonder what all i’m doing

there’s nobody around

to extend the illusion

nobody around

there’s gonna be a few changes

cause i’m honestly fine just waiting

 

i wish you’d say that your heart is broken

it’s been so long since we’ve last spoken

i couldn’t shake this sense of devotion

i couldn’t shake it!

 

cause i want your trust

to be loved and then admired

living without your love

makes me feel so fucking tired

yes i know we can’t always be desired

but living without your love makes me wanna start a fire

 

if i make a come back

i will make you pay til you go black

and you’ll never ever say that i was so bad

you couldn’t see my face on the program

and i’ll be giving you an interview

bout the way i do what you wanna do

 

 

 

3. FEEL FREE! PLASTIC SURGERY!

 

hey ugly you’ve tried the drugs 

now you gotta realize that you’re not enough

to be a celebrity like all the people on your TV

you could do with a nip and tuck 

and a major operation that could fuck you up

you’re grafted onto the scene 

and implanted in a limosine

 

if you never wanna act your age

well you’re always as young as you wanna feel

if you never wanna biodegrade

it’s six to eight weeks to completely heal

 

count backwards here comes the numbness

don’t be afraid it’s just the taste of blood yes

you’ll feel free with a little plastic surgery

all alone like a hit and run and you’re so pretty when you bite your tongue

yeah you’re gonna be seen black and blue on the silver screen

 

if you never wanna act your age

well you’re always as young as you wanna feel

if you never wanna biodegrade

it’s six to eight weeks to completely heal

 

everybody says baby that you’re something

and nobody’s ever gonna know what’s underneath your face

cause i know it’s gonna be nice to say

god gave you all the gifts that you got today

and i know it’s gonna be nice to say you hate

everything changing just cause you’re famous

 

 

4. GUESS WHO’S A MESS

 

there you go

you take your medicine even though

acetaminophen will control

nearly everything that you know

ah well it’s not enough

 

everybody says you’re so messed up

but you’re no idiot on the sidelines

take a chance on a modern drug 

and maybe you’ll survive the night

 

it’s amazing what they do today with

animals and chemicals and make up

looking good to me so hit the pavement

hard to say you’re not already famous

 

if there’s a place you should be

call the ambulance and they’ll take you there for free

try to look as sick as you on the magazine

take a trip on the down side

ah well – it’s not enough

 

everybody says you’re so messed up

but you’re no idiot on the sidelines

take a chance on a modern drug 

and maybe you’ll survive the night

 

you say you wanna try

but you can’t get it right

you think that you’re so bright

why do the same thing twice?

if you can take your life

then you can fake a smile

even when you die, yeah, it’s not enough

 

 

5. WASTE OF TV

 

here’s the plan baby i don’t wanna do very much

but if the death toll keeps on rising you can come get me up

it’s superficial but i’m trying not worry about surviving the night

all the good moms are crying “they show dying in a violent light”

 

i’m all right don’t you worry about me

i’m all right and a waste of TV

 

gonna pack it up put my ear to the ground drag it on down to LA

got a head full of ideas gonna make some deals with some idiots for people with no brains

oh i’m sympathetic and not lying but i can’t let a little hate crime ruin my night

one of these god lovin’ loveable young men is gonna take home one of these homelands tonight

 

i’m all right don’t you worry about me

i’m all right and a waste of TV

 

i know i know i know it isn’t so bad

i know i know i know it isn’t so bad

i know i know i know it’s just a waste of time

 

 

 

6. MODEL HOME

 

mom and daddy aren’t into me

go get a job and go get out of my life

causing scenes in the therapy it’d be best if you just open your eyes

only wanna have a place to waste my time and everyone to leave me alone

maybe they’ll regret what they said when they see me on a TV show

 

i don’t wanna be good 

i just wanna be good looking 

i’m coming straight out of a model home

i feel the good life in my heart i know it’s out there

 

i don’t wanna get up

i don’t wanna keep my feet on the ground

i don’t wanna behave

i don’t wanna do the things i’m allowed

i don’t wanna be a resident of any backwater hole in the wall no more

i don’t wanna be saved 

i don’t wanna do nothing at all

 

i don’t wanna be good 

i just wanna be good looking 

i’m coming straight out of a model home

i feel the good life in my heart i know it’s out there

 

you got the features i got the bleach

i’m gonna show you how it’s supposed to be

 

i don’t wanna be good 

i just wanna be good looking 

i’m coming straight out of a model home

i feel the good life in my heart i know it’s out there

 

 

 

7. THE FIRST THING ABOUT ME

 

from your good side

i could tell you’re so nice

but maybe if it feels right

you could be in my life

 

but you don’t know the first thing about me when you say

“you’re great and not fake and genuine

notice the bruises in my eyes

i wish that you were a friend of mine

a friend of mine”

 

in the bad light

i could tell you’re not bright

covered in a lifetime

of loneliness and bad signs

 

but you don’t know the

first thing about me when you say

“i hate you your face and awful ideas

you fucking worthless waste of time

i hope you fail just to know that i’m right

just to know that i’m right”

 

 

 

8. THANKS FOR THE ADD

 

gimme the mic cause i’m taking my life

in an unexpected new direction

i could care less about your breasts 

or that your daddy never gave you very much attention

 

i’m the same as i used to be 

but i’m doing my best to make a good impression

i don’t wanna go on but i don’t wanna be long 

in this condition

 

did you know that i’m your biggest fan?

i just wanna thank you for the add

can i introduce you to my dad

stop

 

cause i’m feeling like a dead man 

or the way i seem

cause i’m living under ground with a fake ID

cause i’m a dead man

or the way i seem

cause i’m twitching and i’m learning slowly

 

i’m turning my cell phone on in the middle of the interview

i’m digging a shallow grave to eliminate my point of view

gotta get suggestions how best to get your attention, tell you i’m cool

i don’t wanna go on but i don’t wanna be long

in this condition

 

cause i’m feeling like a dead man or the way i seem

cause i’m living under ground with a fake ID

cause i’m a dead man or the way i seem

cause i’m twitching and i’m learning slowly

 

 

 

9. FLUORIDE

 

thanks for picking up my broken teeth

i spit em out cause i can’t swallow anything

mouthwash is pumping through my veins

just to help me get me on my feet and clean again

 

coming straight out of your mouth

and into the ground

coming straight out of your mouth

and into the ground

 

taste the flavor i’ll be taking pains

to do the things i gotta do to be the same

i don’t feel the way i think i seem

maybe i can work it out in surgery

 

coming straight out of your mouth

and into the ground

coming straight out of your mouth

and into the ground

 

it’s the same thing out of your mouth

a little fluoride

it’s the same thing out of your mouth

a little fluoride

it’s the same thing out of your mouth

a little fluoride

it’s the same thing out of your mouth

a little fluoride

 

 

10. JUST IN A PHASE

 

hoping something awesome’ll come

maybe something that’s fun’s coming on the horizon

i don’t even know what it means

but it’s clear to me that i’m tired of trying

my prescription was up

so i packed up my drugs and gave them back to science

and as dumb as it seems it made sense to me that i’d rather be dying

 

you can try to run away from your problems and escape

but the blood is gonna spray when they find you

just in a phase

i was just in a phase

 

maybe i can hold it inside for the rest of my life if i avoid reminders

honestly i came here to say that i think that you’re great and i’m a pretty good liar

and all the animals come just to see what i’ve done and throw it into the fire

i was trying to be what you wanted from me but i guess i got tired
