Track Name: Jackass
I hit every red light I come to.
Tired of this town, well it's tired of you.
You got a brand new grin but you're still eatin shit
I'll excuse myself, I've had enough of it.
I'm a jackass and I've got no excuse.
So swallow your pride like you swallowed a fish.
I was a mountain but now I'm a ditch.
I've been wanting to leave and I've been meaning to run.
Like a burning car, I guess I'm dunn.
Track Name: Virginia Welcomes You
Saw you out drinking at the bar,
Rode home with you inside your car.
Oak Hill is not Haddonfield
But I'll leave you motionless and still.
Lay you to rest somewhere you know,
And memorize this shadow.
Call the cops, got a mess on our hands,
Then I'm gone, tourist attraction
Way back in 1963
Virginia Welcomes You
What are you doing, Mr. Chapple?
Virginia Welcomes You
No fingerprints left to show
Them where you wanted to be.
Cut off your hands so they could
Never point out it was me.
Search and search but never find,
The others lost, just like my mind.
So close, so far.
No one knows where you are.
Track Name: Bret Michaels Extravaganza!
How do you talk all day but not get anywhere's the off switch on this pissed off schizophrenic psycho onset.
You want me to shoot?
How do you walk all day but say anything?
Did the day time blind you, did the night time leave you on your own?
You want me to shoot?
You're wearing a suit, wearing us out.
How do you choke all day but never seem to turn blue?
Another downer goes up and you're in a basement, fading fast.
You want me to shoot?
You're wearing a suit, wearing us out.
Track Name: Sap'd
So you like to write love songs
And you sing em really slow.
Bet you're terrified of needles.
You can't go out into the snow.
You never talk to me anymore
Without looking bored.
Was it something I said?
Or maybe someone I was.
Afraid of people
For no reason.
Get away
Track Name: Whoops
Robbie's been talkin about how he's gonna change his life.
And I think Kristen's just about given up.
I don't see this going anywhere good.
Maybe just straight down.
Maybe it's what we deserve.
And we'll burn that bridge when we get to it,
'Cause I think I'm over this.
Sing na-na-na til you're physically sick.
That same old, worn out, boring song.
I've been swimming like a pisces stuck in a rip tide.
Somebody throw me a line.
If I hear one more song that sounds like that,
I swear to hell, I'll fucking snap.
This conversation is over.
You made your attempt at peace,
But all the talent in the world
Couldn't make up for your lack of integrity.
Track Name: First Rule
I feel like it's been years since I last slept,
Or maybe I just lost count of the days and nights
I tried so hard to end up wasted.
I feel like maybe I'm just slipping away
From everyone I've known, myself included.
Wake up in a different state of mind,
I've waited so long for some insight.
Inside that cell, my virgo block.
I am the jack in a box.
Round and round it goes again,
I lost my job, I got no friends.
A singer in a band that only says the right words
And I think I missed the flight back home.
We burned a building down, I forgot to turn the oven off.
And then a stranger came by, she blew my house to hell.
Oh Marla, can you help me now?
