Aloe and Lanolin

I know a girl who makes the whole world spin
But I don't know where to begin
But I know I've seen her, and she ain't got no skin
Got no use for aloe and lanolin
No

I know a girl who thinks that it's a sin
To go somewhere she's never been
I know she has been in the same place since I left
Do you think she's a mannequin?
No

If she stepped off the shelf
Where no one could see her
If she'd just be herself
Would the boys still believe her?

I know a girl who will be back again
But I don't know where she went
But I know when she comes, with or without her skin
Her bag will have her pajamas in
No

I know a girl who makes the whole world spin
But I don't know where to begin
But I know

Disorganized

I'm disorganized but I keep careful track of vests and ties
'Cause when they're in neat lines their order makes me feel more organized
Organized
More organized

I'm immobilized when I log in to all my porno sites
'Cause when they're in my eyes I can't move, I become immobilized
Immobilized
More immobilized

I just can't decide between my porno sites or vests and ties
'Cause when immobilized I become more and more disorganized
Disorganized
More disorganized

Fine Day

I'm having a fine day today
Sometimes things go right
Sometimes things go right through my head
But not today

It took me days to figure out the years I spent paid off
It took me years to second-guess the seconds I've lost
We started out so high above, no place to climb at all
Six years ago today I started on this free fall

I'm having a fine day today
Sometimes things go right
Sometimes things go right through my head
But not today

It took ten minutes time to try to see the other side
But that was only time enough to turn a blind eye
And so I stated that your statements never make much sense
The green I see is here with me this side of my fence

I'm having a fine day today
Sometimes things go right
Sometimes things go right through my head
But not today

I take my time now try to make sure things don't go amiss
Impatience doesn't make sense much now since I've learned this
The years I spent paid off, it took me days to figure out
That all I've earned from all I've learned is just one more round

Flinch

I can't stand to talk to you
I can't be with you anymore
Spending time with you is painful
And I think you're such a bore

And I wish you weren't such a bitch
I wake up in the morning and I see you
And it makes me flinch

I can't take you one more day
I can't see you another night
With you it's always fight fight fight fight
FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!

And I wish you weren't such a bitch
I wake up in the morning and I see you
And it makes me flinch

Well you were so nice when I met you
You were everything that I hoped you would be
But I've never been so mistaken, no, no
About everything that you meant to me

If I only could've seen through
Could've seen through your lies
If only I could've seen it
Could've seen it in your eyes
Then it would've been easy
Then it would've been a snap, would've been a cinch
Then I would've seen, then I would've known
That you make, you make me FLINCH!

Four More Years

How can I refuse it when you know I'm really losing it,
I can't seem to get it straight?
I know it seems confusing but you know I only cruise
'Cause I've got no excuse to stay out late!

Four more years and I'm still crying, trying now to hang on
Four more years and I'm still crying out

How can I refuse when I was never ever true to you
'Cause I was always in a state?
I caught a mental flu, my mind was kind of in a stew,
I just don't know how much more I can take!

Four more years and I'm still crying, trying now to hang on
Four more years and I'm still crying out

How can I refuse it when you've been so damn abusive
That the welts on my skin never fade?
You really must excuse me but I think that you've been using me,
I just don't think that I can stay!

Four more years and I'm still crying, trying now to hang on
Four more years and I'm still crying out

How can I refuse it when you know I'm really losing it,
I can't seem to get it straight?
I know it seems confusing but you know I only cruise
'Cause I've got no excuse to stay out late!

The Girl with the Cookies

The girl with the cookies came into the party
We talked music and movies that were kind of arty
Then we went into the moonlight, out for a walk
And we talked all night at the top of a rock

Yeah yeah

We watched those arty movies, made eyes at each other
I think she's pretty groovy, but it's not like we were lovers
Went to parties, had a picnic out on the beach
And before that night was over we were dancing with the Greeks

Yeah yeah

She said 'Bill, I really dig you but you're not the only one'
I said 'That's not an issue, we can still have lots of fun'
I think the only one that I've been lying to is me
'Cause when I look at you Sophia, darling, this is what I see

I see the girl in my dreams looks just like you
I know it seems obscene, but I can swear it to be true
I like the way you look, the way you think, the things you do and say
I think I'd like it if you stuck around so me and you can play another day

Another day

The girl in my dreams walks just like you
The girl in my dreams talks just like you
The girl in my dreams acts just like you
The girl in my dreams must be you

The girl in my dreams must be you
What can I do

I Mean What I Say

I mean what I say, and I say what I mean
And Iím mean when I say it to you
But you know what I mean when Iím playing and I say
All the awful things that I do to you

I know what I like, and I like what I know
In your stereo and in your wardrobe
And I think that you know what I like isnít like
All the awful outfits in your wardrobe

Do you mean what you say
When we're alone, when we're high?
How can I trust you when
I know that you know that...

I can see your mind, I donít mind what I see
And you donít seem to mind me either
But who knows what sheíll see, what sheíll find in my mind
Every time she thinks that I believe her

I've Come Undone

You can't expect me to be there
Like the light that shines down, I can't care less
I'm sorry that you're in this mess
But this case, I guess, is just too stressful

So tell me how come I've come undone now
I need to know so I can let go and get out

You can't expect me to be there
Like the light that shines down, I can't care less
I'm sorry that you're in this mess
But this case, I guess, is just too stressful

Summer stalls and all I see is all I can recall
Summer calls and all she does is all she can to stall me in my tracks

But I think she's just a little bit confused
'Cause I pick up on her hints, but I can't quite read her clues
And I think she's been just a little bit abused, it's hard to tell...

I'm sorry I don't know what's best
But the light that dies down gets me messed up
I really would like to be there
When this mess is less we best get dressed up

So tell me how come I've come undone now
I need to know so I can let go and get out
So tell me how come I've come undone now
I need to know so I can let go and get out

You can't expect me to be there

Indecision

You'll find I'm in your mind
I'm in your mind, you're in mine
You'll find I'm in your mind
I'm in your mind, you're in mine

People seem simple seen from the outside
No need to dig deep to find out what they hide
At the core of the apple, not core of the Earth
How many licks will expose what you're worth?

A book can't be judged by it's cover
But isn't that how you tell one from the other
And often by just a few words or just one line
You can tell if the book is a waste of your time

You think you make your own decisions
But I blame you for my indecision

I've heard it said that beauty's only skin-deep
So we often confuse the poor wolf with the sheep
But it's more true to say that ugly goes straight to the bone
It stews as it sits in the corner alone

You think you make your own decisions
But I blame you for my indecision

You'll find I'm in your mind
I'm in your mind, you're in mine
You'll find I'm in your mind
I'm in your mind, you're in mine

You think you make your own decisions
But I blame you for my indecision

Known Better

Straight, curly, straight, blonde, blonde, duck, blonde, blonde
Must be nice to be the biggest bitch in the small pond
Straight, curly, straight, blonde, blonde, duck, blonde, blonde
Must be nice to be the biggest bitch in the small pond

But when we break up what should I do
With all of these cupcakes I've been saving for you?

Back at the party, sharp suit, sly grin
I had to beg for an intro to the legs in this disco
She smiles as she chews, she's got me staring at my shoes
And then she says as she exhales "You'll never be more than a failure!"

Oh yeah?

Well see what's what, C++, be tough stuff
Well see what's what, C++, be tough stuff

But when we break up what should I do
With all of these cupcakes I've been saving for you?

Whatcha staring at, open mouth, open sweater?
You never wear a hat... I should have known better
Think I'm getting fat? Why don't you read my letter?
Whatcha think of that? I should have known better

I should have known better

L.A.

You thought you were so big
I didn't know I wasn't small
'Cause when you danced you last jig
I was standing in the corner with my back against the wall

So you thought you could claim to be
Known as my worst enemy
But you'll go down in history
Known as my last enemy
Enemy

I took you to the court, yeah
You handed me a deck and taught me how to skate away, away
In the other direction, yeah
I tried to run, I tried to hide, I tried to learn to hate

So you thought you could claim to be
Known as my worst enemy
But you'll go down in history
Known as my last enemy
Enemy

But I'm over it now
You're not in my dreams
You used to come out
When I was fast asleep
But I'm used to it now
You can't creep up on me

I still suppose that you'll come back
You'll march up to my door with violence in your head and in your hands
A bigger version of the biggest of the little brats
I'm really, really sorry that you thought no one would understand that

So you thought you could claim to be
Known as my worst enemy
But you'll go down in history
Known as my last...
So you thought you could claim to be
Known as my worst enemy
But you'll go down in history
Known as my last enemy

Like You Do

You...
Have got so many things to do
But now you wanna try something new
And it's getting the better of you

Well I've got a feeling that it's harder to do
When you're starting it off with a bad attitude
Like you do
With a bad attitude like you do
With a bad attitude like you

It's true
This is coming out of the blue
But I thought I should share it with you
Before you fuck it up this time, too

Well I've got a feeling that it's harder to do
When you're starting it off with a bad attitude
Like you do
With a bad attitude like you do
With a bad attitude like you do

Time passes fine on the outside
When your only goal is to get in
Why is the exit back in your sights
Just when you finally begin

Now you're through
But somehow I'm screwed, too
Because I thought I could depend on you
I though We shared a point of view

Well I've got a feeling that it's harder to do
When you're starting it off

Well I've got a feeling that it's harder to do
When you're starting it off with a bad attitude
Like you do
With a bad attitude like you do
With a bad attitude like you do

The Longest Test Drive

It seems to me that irony was pouring out of your cup
Along with water for the trees, trees that feed the birds and bees and me
It's funny now how high I've grown from one small cup of water
The irony has since been thrown by the wayside

I didn't come here to discuss my concussion
I'm typing at my terminal, you're writing back in Russian
But your letters all red seem to gesture to the bed
It all comes back to your voices and my head

One plus one plus one makes three, but you could add another
Right on top, my time is free. Freeze the time here in this line with me
I'm not waiting for a time to get these cool hands untied
I don't need crumbs to remind me where my heart lies

I didn't come here to discuss my concussion
I'm typing at my terminal, you're writing back in Russian
But your letters all red seem to gesture to the bed
It all comes back to your voices and my head

The parts are fitted together
To withstand weapons and weather
Or not we loosen the leather
Strap that we're swinging on
Go ahead bring it on

I didn't come here to discuss my concussion
I'm typing at my terminal, you're writing back in Russian
But your letters all red seem to gesture to the bed
It all comes back to your voices and my head

And I don't get everything you say to me
On the first try, try to take it patiently
And you still get frustrated easily
But you can't stay mad when you're looking at me

You've been told this tale, I know, a thousand times too often
But I really think that you should know without a doubt you found this out from me
It's funny now how bright you've grown, from one trip to the paint shop
That was when you should have known that I decided

I didn't come here to discuss my concussion
I'm typing at my terminal, you're writing back in Russian
But your letters all read seem to gesture to the bed
It all comes back to your voices and my head

I Don't Need Your Love
Any more than you need mine
I don't want to know of your thoughts
They waste, they waste my time

I Don't Need Your Love
Any more than you need mine
I don't want to know of your thoughts
They waste, they waste my time

Beyond my years, but still I should have seen her coming
With poison wit and poison pen
Despite my fears I stuck around instead of running
I stayed to fall for her again

I Don't Need Your Love
Any more than you need mine
I don't want to know of your thoughts
They waste, they waste my time

Behind closed doors we watched as film reels kept unwinding
In check with everything I knew
The funny bit about this comedy was timing that was always off
And I was never true

The people in the world see the games that we all play
The inner eye is often blind
The river still ran red whether or not I looked away
She had her poison wit to hide behind

Second Guess

I had a dream last night, it came from the other side
I had no tears to shed, I had no skin left to hide

And I wanna tell you something
I don't think you know yet
You won't find a better peace of mind
Until you stop your second guess

No man in history could take his life in stride
No man in history just lived until the day he died

And I wanna tell you something
I don't think you know yet
You won't find a better peace of mind
Until you stop your second guess

If there's one thing I've got
It's my memory
If there's one thing I don't remember
Lately it's my dreams

I had a dream last night, it came from the other side
I had no tears to shed, I had no skin left to hide

And I wanna tell you something
I don't think you know yet
You won't find a better peace of mind
Until you stop your second guess

Too Hot (When I Ride)

It's too hot when I ride
So I boil as I'm going
Gotta get a cooler cover
Or I'm gonna end up dying
In this penned up, pent up, pant-suit penthouse

Middle age is just a phase
I'm riding this train every day
To piss my parents off
To piss my parents off

But they don't even notice what I'm doing
Wearing suits and ties, well-grooming
Blending in with everyboody
Trying hard to be nobody

They said I should be somebody
That I could be anybody
That I want, because I'm special
So I act out, I'm a rebel

And when I see them they don't even scoff
It's hard to piss your parents off these days
