Lyrics

It's Hilarious

 

Goodbye to good advice-gonna make me ill 

for the rest of my life.

Sing out loud & proud-if you're able.

You gotta move quick, but don't think twice

cause some of us won't ever get the try.

Some of us don't know what we're missing

and some of us just miss not-knowing.


and that's why we sing.


Baby you and I will never reach, never reach the end of this.

And sweetheart you and I could never be, never be best friends.

It's just not funny, it's just not funny, it's just not funny anymore.

It's not funny, it's just not funny, it's just not funny anymore.

& I don't think that it ever was to start with. No.


and that's why we sing.


I don't know what I should be when I grow up

I hope that day never comes

I know I can buy some time as a bullshit artist long enough

I know I haven't changed at all since school-i'm still with the same old crowd

I think i'm about as grown up as i'm gonna get right now.


It's just not funny, it's just not funny, it's just not funny anymore.

It's not funny, it's just not funny, it's just not funny anymore.

& I don't think that it ever was to start with. No.


Goodbye to good advice-gonna make me ill 

for the rest of my life.

Sing out loud & proud-if you're able.

You gotta move quick, but don't think twice

cause some of us won't ever get the try.

Some of us don't know what we're missing

and some of us just miss not-knowing.


We just miss not knowing.

and that's why we sing.


 

If We Lose Our Heads

 

She told me that she wanted out

there's nothing new to talk about

one thing that i've figured out

is you might have a way but twenty bucks says you won't do it.

Said that you needed a friend

to put all the pain to an end

and you thought that you'd found that friend in me...quite possibly.

But if we lose our heads,if we lose our heads It wouldn't make any difference.

If we lose our hearts we'd still lose our minds.can i stress that one more time?

And if we lose all hope, if we lose all hope, it'd make no difference to cope

with the aftermath. I don't think i wanna know

I don't wanna know.Go.

 

Trazodone

 

I never would have guessed i’d see you stoop so low

I should have known that i was losing from the get go

If everything had gone according to plan

None of us would ever have to work again

I was an honest man i never took a thing in life

Sometimes the blues will introduce you to a life of crime

Here in the box it is my personal hell

Crime pays but it don’t pay too well

And I wanted to tell you that everythings perfectly fine...but that’s a lie.

 

In fourty seconds we were in and out and the deed was done

If no one tries to be a hero they won’t see my gun

Ladies and gentlemen we just mean business

So all you citizens don’t pay attention

Then at the top of my lungs i said get on the floor

And fired a couple warning shots into the door

But when i got inside, the vault was empty

Except for a note that said “god forgive me”.

And an honest man has nothing to fear,

So i’m tryin my best not to look so scared.

I got a spoon i’ll dig my way soon clean outta here...

Outta here.

 

 

Cardboard Chili

 

Been sneakin, she’s been creepin and keepin

Tabs on me again

She said it’d be alright, if i just end my life

I can’t let those bygons be again

But don’t worry cause i ain’t in no hurry

Don’t worry bout a thing now babydoll

Whoa oh oh oh don’t worry bout anything at all

And it all just fell apart like carboard in the rain

In the gutter’s a familiar place you like to spread my name.

 

Been whining and crying

Been wishing i’d come back around

You said i must have fell from heaven-

I didn’t hit my head on the way down

But i promise, that i can’t be honest

But i can be crazy just a little bit sometimes

Whoa oh oh oh did that thought cross your mind?

And it all just fell apart like carboard in the rain

In the gutter’s a familiar place you like to spread my name.

If i could have one wish i just wish you would understand

That i didn’t mean to end like this i think it just got out of hand

And it all just fell apart like carboard in the rain

In the gutter’s a familiar place you like to spread my name.

 

Sell Me Out

 

Wasted again on a Sunday night feelin allright inside

Gotta be at work at four in the morning

But i won’t show up til nine

 gotta be a man, gotta make a plan, gotta understand

gotta make the wrong things right

gotta find myself a designated driver

cause i’m way too stoned to drive.

Come clean like kerosene and spark a batch of anecdotes

Make friends with the lord above you

Make friends with the one below

And it’s much too late they say

To change yourself, don’t hate your self

There wasn’t even really much to save

‘cept a heart that burned out long ago.

I know that i can’t wait any longer for it.

Sell Me, Sell me out, Darling i’m not that easy to forget about.

Sell me, oh won’t you please sell me out?

Darling i’m not that easy to forget about.

 

Did you unwind? Have a good time? Why did you go away?

If pleading hands could talk i wouldn’t wanna hear the things they’d say

Wipe your cryin eyes,keep em on the prize, you been tellin lies

Like its back in style

Drugs always numb the pain at least for a little while

And it’s much too late they’ll say to save yourself don’t hate yourself

Wasn’t even really much to save

But a heart that burned out long ago.

 Got a heart that burned out long ago.

Sell Me Sell me out darling i’m not that easy to forget about

Sell me, oh won’t you please sell me out

Darling i’m not that easy to forget about.

 

Zombies

 

I’ll die if i gotta take another beverage order

I’m getting way too old for this. So when is my ship coming in?

Jump-start my life and pull me from the bargain bin once more

And ask myself,”what am i still waiting tables

For...the love of god, get me out of here

Gotta get me back to college

Or face the truth that mom and dad could have been right..

I just feel like a zombie inside.

 

But don’t quit your dayjob kids

Cause home-shows don’t count as gigs

You’ve got so much to learn

The industry will do you in

But i don’t even care

As long as you’ll be right there

Jumping at every show

Even when no one goes

For...the love of god, get me out of here

Gotta get me back to college

Or face the truth that mom and dad could have been right..

I just feel like a zombie inside.

 

Bobby Wake Up

 

Bobby wake up cause you’ve had too many drinks

And your bedroom it stinks like a gaybar

Don’t be a jerk cause i need a ride to work

And it was you who borrowed my car

And now it’s upside down in the front yard

Well I couldn’t pay the rent, i don’t know where the money went

I’m gonna be evicted i’ll be livin in a tent

And the paychecks here but it’s allready been spent

Gonna be movin in with brent.

When did life get so hard? Yeah now it’s upside down in the front yard.

 

Slow down, keep-it-on-the-low-down

That’s not slow enough she said

There’s no time to smell the roses baby.

Slow down, keep-it-on-the-low-down

That’s not slow enough she said

There’s no time, but really man who’s got the time?

 

Make You Sick

 

Hey baby can I take you home

And depress you while i piss and moan?

And fail to make some sense of myself

Or just plain fail to make some sense at all

Oh...Do I make you sick?

Oh-oh ...cause without you i’m a nervous wreck

Oh-Oh...but i was worse before

Oh-Oh...one thing that I know for sure-

You’re the cutest thing i’ve ever seen.

But you could use some self esteem.

 

Hey baby can I take You out?

Got no money in my bank account

So you should lend me some bones

To buy gas to get home

Cause just now i coasted in on fumes..

Oh...Do I make you sick?

Oh-oh ...cause without you i’m a nervous wreck

Oh-Oh...but i was worse before

Oh-Oh...one thing that I know for sure-

You’re the cutest thing i’ve ever seen.

But you could use some self esteem.
