D1-2-8

They played something They made something Brand new a baby blue machine Brass tacks, duct tape For the great escape Packed in there like sardines Back and forth East, south, west, north Shred the atlas burn the map Often lost And paths criss-crossed Wake me up I need a nap 1,2 what's in the stew 3,4 no one's really sure 5,6 what's in the mix 7,8 this stuff tastes They did something Which meant something And that got them some attention Eyes wise A roller coaster ride Great pride in this invention I think they're selling Snake oil At the dog and pony show In the garden gee Would you pardon me And by the way how does it grow? 1,2 what's in the stew 3,4 no one's really sure 5,6 what's in the mix 7,8 this stuff tastes The explanation's unexplainable Holding onto something Once so unattainable The course was never charted So don't look into the books The secret's not the recipe It's got to be the cooks They made something They played something Blood, sweat, and elbow grease Well if you can't stand the heat in the kitchen Get out it will increase Last train to where? Hey get out of here Nothing's measured and nothing's weighed A dash of honesty In the recipe That's the first mistake you've made 1,2 what's in the stew 3,4 no one's really sure 5,6 what's in the mix 7,8 this stuff tastes 1,2 what's in the stew 3,4 no one's really sure 5,6 what's in the mix 7,8 this stuff tastes “Great.”

365 Days

It's gripping, I'm ripping I haven't just been sipping stressing no messing will I ever learn my lesson? I'm always amazed, by what can take place within the space of 300-365 sinning, I'm spinning in the beginning I was winning clinging, still swinging if I could I would be singing I'm always amazed by what can take place within the space of 300-365 I'm empty of answers don't nobody search me the long neck's a twist off you don't need a church key I'm still full of questions but can't quite see clear twist off another (x3) and bring on next year drilled it killed my guts are being spilled wailed, impaled my last breath's been inhaled that's still in me I haven't failed I'm always amazed, by what can take place within the space of 300-365 I'm empty of answers don't nobody search me the long neck's a twist off you don't need a church key I'm still full of questions but can't quite see clear twist off another (x3) and bring on next year 300-365 (x3) 365 DAY! Die Mighty Mighty Bosstones haetten an dieser Stelle gerne “eisgekuehlter Bommerlunder” von den Toten Hosen gesampelt, doch Rechtsanwälte und Plattenbosse haben dies mal wieder verhindert.

737

Down the street, around the corner, over the bridge, that dirty water. College campus, mighty minds and a reactor right behind. Passed the candy factory, Salvation Army, fire station through the square, I hate that place up the stairs. Next the doors, they never work I never let that bother me. And I hope some worker's not disgruntled I hope there's something there for me. An old man reads the paper loudly everyday now for a year. Stamp machines and wanted posters here again, again I'm here.

Now it's 737 almost everyday! 737 well I want you to say! 737 and everyday! 737 almost everyday! Nice to know that someone hears us it's good to know somebody's there, takin the time to say hello, taking the time to show you care. Write again and thanks again from the bottom of my heart. See you soon and till then 737 is a real big part.

737 almost everyday! 737 well I want you to say! 737 almost everyday! 737!

I've been down the last time, stretchin the finish line. Shoe glue what can I do? A man's not well dressed if his shoes are a mess. Rock and Roll I've got a hole right in my sole. Let's rock! It's fucking my walk and soaking my sock. Who knew? It's not stopping my step or stepping my stop. We've got it up and we won't let it drop. Beer here, don't wanna see clear, I see no point in wrecking the joint. We're here to quench our thirst a bit but we won't get the worst of it. Turn it up more than a notch like a punch to the face or a kick to the crotch. All night never ender benefiting from a bender if nothing's worrying you. That's the key 'cause nothing's worrying me…and nothing's worrying me…

A Dollar and a Dream

I've got a dollar, that I want to save safe in my pocket, I'll try to hold fast hey! it might be my last I know what I've got, folded safe in its spot I earned a dollar, it's not here to share I've got a dollar and that's all I've got a million more is just a single grain a grain of sand, or just one drop of rain a small amount might make the difference these days a dollar and a dream is all I can raise I had a dream, I had all the answers to all the questions, I've ever been asked and in my dream, I had all the answers to all the questions, I've ever asked myself man what a dream, it sure felt great took to the streets, 'cause I couldn't wait to freely give wisdom and share what I knew I had a dream and that's all I had a million here, lay down in pain every night a million there, to stay alive must fight I'm sure my numbers underestimate a dollar and a dream, I swear it's not too late I had a dollar, I wanted to save keep in my pocket, I held fast a dollar bill, that I would take to my grave deep in my pocket like it was my last look for the dollar, now it's not there even the pants are a different pair I earned the dollar, I had to share I had a dollar and that's all I had a million more, is just a star in the sky tip of the iceberg, but we've all got to try our works cut out, and there's work to be done a dollar and a dream, is step number, step number one

A Man Without

How did this could this come to this? Helpless heartless loneliness, a hand held out hope someone gives. I'm a man without a place to live. A man without a place to go and it just might be my fault I know. Won't hold you up or bag your eyes but I'm a man please realize. How did this could this come to this? Helpless heartless loneliness. Heartless, had a heart just yesterday. Helpless didn't used to be this way. Homeless, that's the worst part of it all. Fuck this, what I scream at every wall.

Are my screams being ignored. I'm screaming can you help me Lord. No one hears a man like me. It's easier if they don't see. So let's all just pretend to feel and make believe that I'm not real. Help is what I'm screaming for, help me please don't just ignore. It's come to this helpless heartless loneliness. Hand held out, hope someone gives. I'm a man without a place to live, a man without a place to go. And it just might be my fault I know. Won't hold you up or bag your eyes but I'm a man please realize. How did this could this come to this (x7)

All Things Considered

There is this older guy That comes around from time to time We're sure that he fought in the war The war in Vietnam Most of what he tells us No one's verified He swears that he was there The day that Brendan Behan died He also claims he trained A kid name Cassius Clay And cost Goldwater the election On election day If he was still with us today Then he would introduce Us to his closest friend The one and only Lenny Bruce The truth is what he's been through What he's had to do What he's seen, and what he's done All things considered, what he's telling us Isn't hurting anyone We knew it's true He's short a few Check out the deck, it's light Said he wrote the entire soundtrack for A Hard Day's Night On Peyton Place, played second base He says but he regrets The stadium was Shea, the team, the New York Mets The truth is what he's been through What he's had to do What he's seen, and what he's done All things considered, what he's telling us Isn't hurting anyone All things considered he's not bitter, He's not mean, no he's not done All things considered, what he's telling us Isn't hurting anyone There is this older guy That comes around from time to time We're sure that he fought in the war The war in Vietnam Most of what he tells us No one's verified He swears that he was there The day that Brendan Behan died The truth is what he's been through What he's had to do What he's seen, and what he's done All things considered, what he's telling us Isn't hurting anyone All things considered he's not bitter, He's not mean, no he's not done All things considered, what he's telling us Isn't hurting anyone Every now and then we hear our song (x4)

A Sad Silence

Two years and extra days, a block away he'd head to hang same corner, neighborhood, his friends, the gang two years and extra days, a bigger kid would crack his eye no real reason, explanation and everyday no one knew why the bigger kid was crazy, that made the gang afraid when he told the gang to shut their mouths, the gang obeyed you've got to have a place to be, you need a place to hang around no one spoke, no one moved, no one made a sound both his eyes would twitch the left one was always black his lips they never moved they stayed still with each attack his ears were always ringing, in his head he'd hear a hum and all the kids on the corner knew what it was from well then one day it happened, he took his daily crack his eyes rolled up, like yesterday, he started falling back the kids that watch this everyday, now watched him hit the ground no one spoke, no one moved, no one made a sound and no one made a sound both his eyes would twitch the left one was always black his lips they never moved they stayed still with each attack his ears were always ringing, in his head he'd hear a hum and all the kids on the corner knew what it was from

no one spoke, no one moved, no one made a sound a sad silent situation, now he's not around (x2) well no one spoke and no one moved and no one made a sound a sad silent situation he's not a-he's not around noone spoke noone moved he's not around a sad silent situation now he's not around

Another Drinkin' Song

Gonna dive into a dive I've dove into before Gonna haunt a haunt I've haunted Like a million times or more A familiar joint Where getting drunk's the only point To frequent this place With any frequency at all Countin' on a remedy I've counted on before Goin' with a cure that's never failed me What you call the disease, I call the remedy What you're callin' the cause, I call the cure Gonna sing a song, a song to you A song I've sung before Belt out a ballad that I've belted out A million times or more The words I'm gonna scream And getting drunk's the central theme To the lyrics, if you can Make the lyrics out at all Countin' on a remedy I've counted on before Goin' with a cure that's never failed me What you call the disease, I call the remedy What you're callin' the cause, I call the cure Just a devotion to a potion Now please no applause A dedication to a medication A crutch a cure a cause What I've counted on to pick me up Has knocked me to my knees Before I hit the floor once more I'll call it the disease Countin' on a remedy I've counted on before Goin' with a cure that's never failed me What you call the disease, I call the remedy What you're callin' the cause, I call the cure I call the cure Gonna dive into a dive I've dove into before Gonna sing a song I've sung a million times or more

Almost Anything Goes

4:30 in the morning I'm tattered, tired and torn. Trying to keep up with the pace, this ain't my home, and it ain't my place. The candle keeps on burning at this point there's no returning. The policy is clear, anything goes when you are here. Almost anything goes from the night clubs to the shows. Almost anything goes from the haircuts to the clothes. Almost anything goes from your head down to your toes. Almost anything goes, does this place ever close?

I wanna wake up in a city that likes to go to bed. Where they know what time of day it is but I'm stuck here instead. Now every rule is disregarded, so I'd hope we all get started moving at that hyperspeed this city seems to need. Almost anything goes from the nightclubs to the shows. Almost anything goes from the haircuts to the clothes. Almost anything goes from your head down to your toes. Almost anything goes, does this place ever close? Nice place to visit but I don't wanna die here. I stay on my toes whenever I go by here. Nice place to visit but I don't wanna die here. I stay on my toes whenever I go by here.

I was killing all my money, spending brain cells just as fast. So I'll grab a taxi cab and head somewhere where I can crash. Port authority driver, home's my destination. Don't noone wake me up til we're near Park Street Station. Almost anything goes from the nightclubs to the shows. Almost anything goes from the haircuts to the clothes. Almost anything goes from your head down to your toes. Almost anything goes, does this place ever close? Nice place to visit but I don't wanna die. I stay on my toes whenever I go by. There's this electric lure that's so attractive but I'd rather hang my hat on a hook that's not so active. I was walking on the wild side, I was in that state of mind the neon lights were bright but I'll be leaving them behind. Big city of dreams can be a nightmare a knife, a fork a bottle, a cork I'm outta here. I'm outta here. Nice place to visit but I don't wanna die here. I stay on my toes whenever I go by here. Nice place to visit but I don't wanna die here. I stay on my toes whenever I go by here. Almost anything Goes. Anything

Awfully Quiet

I like noise, that's why I'm livin' where I am. I like the noise and confusion of a traffic jam. I like the sound of a jet as it's shakin' my dwellin' I like ragin', rampagin' and screamin' and yellin' sound of a fire engine headed for a fire. Emotions so high they can't get any higher goin' out of control in an outta hand crowd I like noise and it's gotta be loud. Awfully quiet, Awfully quiet, Awfully quiet It was awfully quiet on the streets yesterday people on the streets had little to say well I walked the streets and barely heard a sound it was awfully quiet on the streets downtown. Sometimes quiet's okay, sometimes quiet's alright. Given the choice, I like noise, morning, noon, and night. It was awfully quiet and on the trains last night. People on the trains kept the conversation light. I rode the trains and barely heard a word quietest train I ever heard. Sometimes quiet's okay, sometimes quiet's alright. Given the choice, I like noise, morning, noon, and night. Awfully quiet, Awfully quiet, Awfully quiet It was awfully quiet and I needed some noise I got on the blower called up the boys I was doing so bad I could barely hack it they came to my house and they kicked up a racket ooh-ah (x2) they turned my place on its ear ooh the boy's began to riot ah it felt so good to hear ooh on a day that was so quiet ah I screamed and cheered them on ooh and I helped out where I could ah and when they all were gone ooh I was feeling good! I like noise that's why I'm livin' where I am. I like the noise and confusion of a traffic jam. I like the sound of a jet as it's shakin' my dwellin' I like ragin' rampagin' and screamin' and yellin' sound of a fire engine headed for a fire. Emotions so high they can't get any higher goin' out of control in an outta hand crowd I like noise and it's gotta be loud. yeah it's gotta be loud oh yeah its gotta be loud come on its gotta be loud from now on its gonna be loud oooh yeah

Bad News and Bad Breaks

Bad news if he could choose Would he refuse to be the bearer Seems what he has to do Could not be any clearer It's a job he can't neglect Its consequences will affect I'm glad that I'm not in his shoes He's the bearer of bad news What can he do? He's got an ugly job to do Oh! There's always something That can set you back That's the way life is Bad breaks for heaven sakes And mistakes he couldn't count To put it politely It's a very large amount Whenever he gets involved You end up with problems you can't solve You're cleaning up the mess he makes He's a victim of bad breaks What can you say? Will he always be this way? Oh! There's always something That can set you back That's the way life is It's not sunny everyday And there are bumps on every road Toss in one more cliche Like life can be a heavy load Said life can be a heavy load now Oh! There's always something That can set you back That's the way life is Oh! There's always something That can set you back That's the way life is Oh! There's always something That can set you back That's the way life is Oh! There's always something That can set you back…

Break So Easily

You would break so easily So fragile that it frightens me A harsh sudden reality A painful possibility To see it's like the strangest dream To be it needs to still be seen As loud as any noise you've heard As quiet as a whispered word Try to answer questions forced Forced inside of me You were forced across the line You're not providing me You would break so easily I watched you break so easily What's it like to be right up against Not stay on this side of the fence A line so fine it can't be traced A life so suddenly erased Two came through just like a train A flash and nothing's been the same Try to answer questions forced Forced inside of me You were forced across the line You're not providing me Providing me with what I need To put a cover on You took the answers when you broke So easily you're gone! Gone! Once the same until You broke so easily Tell me now Try to answer questions forced Forced inside of me You were forced across a line you're not providing me

Desensitized

“Ya gotta ease up there ease up there I can't fuckin here anything What the fuck? Turn your reel Yeah”

Woke up early On the tenth anniversary GOOD MORNING Fit in clips of it Between food prep shorts Weather reports Check the day's commute And a look at sports I remember how the wind Was knocked from me Before it became footage A footnote in history Recently well I think I heard It could have been avoided It shouldn't have occurred A fundamental obligation To my parents and my kids LIFE Gave me a glimpse of it Don't know who shot him They never caught him Let's get to the bottom And blow off the lid now I'm trying to keep a balance Like the plates on top of sticks Chip away 'til it goes down When it goes down apply the kicks Recently I think I heard it could have been avoided It shouldn't have occurred Sadly we're desensitized To all the scandals and the cover ups The conspiracies and liesRecently well I think I heard it could have been avoided And it shouldn't have occurred Sadly we're desensitized To all the scandals and the cover ups The conspiracies and lies

Dont Know How to Party

I've heard all the stories, the failures and glories I haven't had either. Boast and toast I'm the best and I'm a mess. I know I'm not neither. Thought I was down as far as any man could go, thought my highs were giant size. I know now that's not so. I know you heard, know you heard, know you heard, don't believe a word, not a word, one word. It's been overblown, the truth should be known 'til now I couldn't see. Put my cards on the table while I'm still able, I guess I really don't know how to party.

It's blown out of whack, the truth is what's lacking, 'til now I couldn't see. The long and the short I'd like to report, I guess I really don't know how to party. Really don't by any shape or form. Whether straight up in the sunshine or passed out in a storm don't know how but now I know I don't will it help me out? No, it probably won't. Ten nine ain't no hero number one at bad behavior. Five, four, three, two, what? not zero. Don't go counting on a savior. I was playing it safe when I'd fall on my face. Entertainment was what I was after, harmless fun, no damage done. I was out and about for the laughter. Thought I was something really something no one was gonna touch. Ace in the place, kingpin of sin I didn't know too much. Don't believe everything you've heard, don't believe a solitary word. It's been overblown, the truth should be known, 'til now I couldn't see. Put my cards on the table while I'm still able I guess I really don't know how to party. Really don't by any shape or form. Whether straight up in the sunshine or passed out in a storm, don't know how but now I know I don't. Will it help me out, no it probably won't. I don't have a notion and I don't have a clue, an iota or an inkling where to start or what to do. The foggiest, the faintest, the slightest I ain't got. Will it help me out? Nah, probably not

Holy Smoke

You made your bed, that's where you'll lie. No pearly gates when you die. We tried to teach, you didn't learn. You're going down, you're gonna burn.

Fast at passing judgement and your quick to cast a stone. Hypocrite talking shit, leave me alone. Thump the book and twist the word you're setting sinners straight. Point your finger, wag your tongue then pass around the plate. I've made my bed that's where I'll lie, won't see those gates when I die. And I've been told I'll never learn, I'm going down I'm gonna…Screaming demons all hell broke loose and other dark remarks. You say that's Satan's waiting for me but I don't give a fuck. If words and music tick you off then you're the one that's sick. But I think its fucking followers that really make you click. As far as I can tell I'm going to hell. As far I know its where I'm gonna go. As far as I can tell I'm going to hell. As far as I can see, you're coming with me.

You made your bed that's where you'll lie. No pearly gates when you die. We tried to teach, you didn't learn. You're going down, you're gonna burn. Holy smoke! is this a joke? I mean man you're on the move, shut 'em up and shut 'em down if you don't approve. Cuss and curse and stuff your purse and tell me where I'm goin'. Holy cow, man, don't stop now, man, your bank account is growin'. You made you're bed that's where you'll lie. No pearly gates when you die. We tried to teach, you didn't learn. You're going down, you're gonna burn. You made you're bed that's where you'll lie. Thanks God I've got a place to sleep. No pearly gates when you die, why should I worry now or cry. We tried to teach you didn't learn. You know I'm not concerned you're going down, you're gonna burn.

I just don't know why this is so but I've never been so scared am I getting older? are things getting harder? I used to never cry when I would think about my father. the years went past so goddamn fast. you know, I've left a lot behind my devil could care attitute, you know, I just can't seem to find. and once upon a time I never minded very much I never let it knock me down or grind me out of touch am I getting older? are things getting harder? I used to never cry when I would think about my father. once I had an outlook different than it is full of dreams and schemes it seems they just do not exist and once I told myself he will not be missed now now now I never thought that I would see the day I'd ever feel like this am I getting older? are things getting harder?

I Know More

Somebody bring me back to the beginning A place as nice as any place to start That's where I must have misplaced my opinion I wasn't sure where I was headed I was following my heart In the beginning I'm recalling Thinking I thought I knew it all And I think I thought I knew a lot Now I know I knew so little So bring me back to where and when I was convinced I could go up against whatever came along Bring me back and I'll bring back what I've learned since Lately I'm convinced in the beginning I was wrong In the beginning I'm recalling Thinking I thought I knew it all And I think I thought I knew a lot Now I know I knew so little As time progressed, I've reassessed I know that now I know at best It isn't all or nothing It's somewhere I know in the middle

I know more - I know Now then I knew then I know I know, now I know I know Then I knew less Than I thought so I know more - I know Now then I knew then I know I know now I know Then I knew less Than I thought so In the beginning I'm recalling Thinking I thought I knew it all And I think I thought I knew a lot Now I know I knew so little As time progressed, I've reassessed I know that now I know at best It isn't all or nothing It's somewhere I know in the middle

Illegal Left

Illegal left on Sunday morning. On the corner I was warning. Waving widly, wildy warning. Don't take that turn on Sunday morning. A motorcycle cop was waiting, he had to fill his ticket book. On his nerves I was grating, illegal left that no one took. Maybe I should mind my own, maybe it's not my concern but somewhere someone's suffering and this is an illegal turn.

Sunday morning not too far someone's taking someone's car, someone's taking someone out, someone needs you now, no doubt.

He told me I should move along. I said, “You've got the whole thing wrong.” I'll stay here, I've got the time and you can deal with real crime. He didn't like what I was saying not at all no not one bit. I didn't see the point in staying it was fun though I'll admit. Maybe I should mind my own, and maybe it's not my concern but somewhere someone's suffering and this is an illegal turn.

Sunday morning not too far, someone's taking someone's car, someone's taking someone out, someone needs you now no doubt.

Time's running out And the tables will turn The days have been numbered And your number's coming up He's got a group of friends And they're all like minded guys The fun never ends And the party, it never dies Somebody crossed their path At the worst time to do it Toes to the temple And he didn't live through it He's got a group of friends and They'll target anyone Violence, when will they learn? Time's running out And the tables will turn The days have been numbered And your number's coming up Senseless, when will they learn? Time's running out And the tables will turn The days have been numbered And your number's coming up The charge what? homicide? Alone he took the fall His friends all testified They weren't there at all He cried like a baby When his sentence was passed For himself and not the victim But this victim was his last yes it was his last victim Still familiar with his kind Too many of them left behind Up to all that he once was No other reason, just because Too many incidents None are isolated Each coincidence Is closely related Familiar with his kind He'll target anyone Violence, when will they learn? Time's running out And the tables will turn The days have been numbered And your number's coming up Senseless, when will they learn? Time's running out And the tables will turn The days have been numbered And your number's coming up

One Million Reasons

If I could have my way you wouldn't leave There's nothing I can do about it Nothing I believe There's got to be a million reasons to stay A million more to not walk away If I could have my way you wouldn't leave and I could list each one What would that get me? It's been said and done It's just a list A million reasons That I missed

I realize I probably brought this on What good's that going to do me Probably no good When you're gone There's got to be a million reasons to stay A million more to not walk away I realize I probably brought this on I could list each one Where would that get me It's been said and done It's just a list A million reasons And I don't want to list the reasons That I missed I was caught off guard I've never been hit so hard I've never been hit as hard as this Too hard to be explained Nothing will be regained And I'll gain nothing from the list from the list from the list If I could have my way you wouldn't leave I realize I probably brought this on 1,2,3,4 A million reasons why to stay (x4)

Noise Brigade

Without any training It's pouring, it's raining Training or a trade Hey, you bet I'm afraid Unequipped with a skill But I'm thrilled with the thrill Underskilled, unprepared Hey, who wouldn't be scared? Dime for a dozen if that's what you're after A moment of silence a lifetime of laughter So bring on the obstacles And burn me a bridge I'm not sure, should I call This my range or a ridge? There ain't none too high If I'm up for the climb I'll go zero to sixty And stop on a dime A dime for a dozen If that's what you're after A moment of silence A lifetime of laughter On the brighter side And on a happier note The noise, well it's just love That gets caught in my throat The end of the line's Not the end of a rope Just a salesman Selling a bucket of hope When the bucket gets kicked And my chips are all cashed My intentions, conventions Are finally smashed A dime for a dozen if that's what you're after A moment of silence a lifetime of laughter

Our Only Weapon

Read the paper, things look grim. Watch the news, the outlook's dim. It's clear to see that there is something wrong. Could be that we don't change a lot but we should give it our best shot. Our only weapon is a song. Maybe we're being too naive but this is something we believe. What's beyond belief is just how much is wrong. Nothing is gained when people fight, maybe our heads aren't screwed on tight. Our only weapon is a song.

We're not building bombs or storing ammunition. We're just playing songs hoping people will listen. Others try hate but hate won't move anything. We're trying love and unity too. We're not packing pistols, we're not waging war. Most of our missiles have only four chords. It's not a great plan but we like the agenda. The arsenal's music and the army's our friend.

Could be our idea isn't great, maybe our heads aren't screwed on straight. We might be wrong and maybe nothing's wrong and we might never win the war but we'll have fun and that's for sure. Our only weapon is a song.

Patricia

I see my girl's been forced to hide a brand new emptiness inside I wish that I could fill the space it's not my place to take the place she's been hurt and she's been lost before this loss has her alone once more even though my girl's alone she stays together strong as stone she stops my rain, she calms my storm miracles she can perform I've seen tough times, she's seen me through and always knew just what to do so many rely on her, I'm one of them and I know it when demons haunt inside of her she fights hard not to show it I've seen my girl forced to take pain, tragedy, and much heartache the tears she hides, the smile she fakes and through it all, she doesn't break I don't know where she finds the strength I'm only glad that she can just when I think my girl is down she's on her feet again she stops my rain, she calms my storm miracles she can perform I've seen tough times, she's seen me through and always knew just what to do so many rely on her, I'm one of them and I know it when demons haunt inside of her she fights hard not to show it I've seen her world before my eyes get filled with evil, painful, spiteful lies still she fights, still she tries and she will fight until she dies demons haunt inside of her (x3) still she fights and still she tries demons haunt inside of her she will fight until she dies

Someday I Suppose

There was a place a place and the name of the place escapes me. When I can't rememeber it irritates me. Could be I can't remember, could be I choose to not. Let's move along the song and try to find the plot. There was a girl and I don't know her name either. She gave me love and I said I'd never leave her. If I did, I'd come back someday and find her. Maybe I will I should write down a reminder. One day! One day who knows? Someday! Someday I suppose. There was a verse that I was gonna write. I haven't yet but there's still a chance I might. An open book that I still want to close. I'll find the time someday I suppose a place and time. I wanna be and spend a storyline that's happy in the end. Plans are made with promises so certainly uncertain. I can't wait to set things straight before they close the curtain. One day! One day who knows? Someday! Someday I suppose. The more I sort it out the more things get distorted. I sort of think I'm better off just leaving it unsorted. The more I try to change it's course the more off course it goes. Of course I'll reach my destination someday I suppose. Sort it out, get distorted one day who knows? Hide behind, unreported, someday I suppose.

I couldn't be more confused but more than that I'm upset we once stood side by side we were young when we met we'd always stand together that's how we had it planned now where do we stand oh I can't stand the pain I guess I don't understand I just don't understand this stand off there's a lot I don't understand we're apart and don't have to be what went wrong? I don't know off hand I only know this is killing me so I called your bluff said I'd see you around you stood tough you stood your ground now I'm standing by I'm trying to stand tall I'm standing alone don't understand this at all I just don't understand this stand off there's a lot I don't understand we're apart, do we have to be? what went wrong?

The Rascal King

Well he was fueled by a lack Drew inspiration from a need So many problems to crack And mouths to feed Crooked was the path And brazen was the walk A cocky swagger, up the ladder And could he ever talk The last hurrah? Nah! I'd do it again The Rascal King behind the bars Or the one in front of them last hurrah? Nah! I'd do it again The Rascal King behind the bars Or the one in front of them The love of God And constant contradictions With just a smile, wink or nod What's stranger, fact or fiction? And never ceasing to amaze On a regular basis First hand into his pocket Or first fist into the faces and it's The last hurrah? Nah! I'd do it again The Rascal King behind the bars Or the one in front of them last hurrah? Nah! I'd do it again The Rascal King behind the bars Or the one in front of them A legendary character Where? Only there When? Only then then? Only there A hero or a hooligan? Well, that part's never clear Pride or shame, it's all the same Who's innocent and who's to blame? Politics or just a game? Well in the end they knew his name The last hurrah? Nah! I'd do it again and it's The Rascal King behind the bars Or the one in front of them well it's The Rascal King behind the bars Or the one in front of them

The Skeleton Song

One day my skeletons appeared I knew where they were coming from Hung by a rope I volunteered I never thought the day would come Some boundaries I once overstepped Shortcomings I must now accept Secrets that could not be kept I wish my skeletons had slept You're not being honest really You're really not and oughtto be Take an honest look at yourself Try a little honesty To further add to my demise Demons never exorcised Appeared before my very eyes To noone's just my own suprise A scenario just so surreal Demons once so well concealed Were now throughout my whole ordeal So real and painfully revealed You're not being honest really You're really not and ought to be Take an honest look at yourself Try a little honesty You're not being honest really And honestly you've never been You ought to take a look at yourself Let the honesty begin In flew the accusations, razor-toothed insinuations Each ghost my own creation, and every monster my invention Beasts they came to burden, hell I let whatever stirred in And I couldn't get a word in, at this unearthly intervention They let up when they knew they got through They knew I'd never be the same With little left to say or do They left as quickly as they came The life was scared half out of me Some way somehow I survived A part of me was proud of me The day my skeletons arrived You're not being honest really You're really not and ought to be Take an honest look at yourself Try a little honesty try a little honesty

They Came to Boston

They came to Boston on their vacation they came, they saw, they annoyed me they saw it all, what! Fanueil Hall! It's best if they just avoid me rented a car to see the sights they found the Hub confusing looked for the Swan Boats In Mattapan well, I find that real amusing I was here before they came. I'll be here long after don't want to share, but it seems clear that I'm gonna have to they came to Boston for an education live in the dorms, join a frat jam my bars and subway cars now, what the fuck is that? spend year one having fun and causing aggravation spending daddy's cash on a toga bash when the hell's graduation? I was here before they came I'll be here long after don't want to swear, but it seems clear that I'm gonna have to aww fuck I was here before they came I'll be here long after don't want to share, but it seems clear that I'm gonna have to I was here before they came I'll be here long after don't want to share, but it seems clear that I'm gonna have to They came to Boston (x9)

Think Again

Everybody's right!

Everything I've done is wrong wrong wrong! I've tried to keep it short. You Know it took too fucking long. Too much has been said, you think it fucked my head? Think again! (x8) Ignorance, it set your standards. Intelligence, that don't work in your brain. You're and adult, buy you act like a child. Don't even try to explain. This stupid shit, it's been done. You think you're the only one? Think again! (x8)

A hand to the mouth, a performing yawn. You think you know what the fuck is going on? You're on top, you're on the ball. You think you've seen it all? Think again! (x8)

Before you take another crack and slap yourself on the back. Before you tell me what you've heard and sum it up in just one word. Before you start talking shit. Before you throw another fit. Think again! (x8)

Tin Soldiers

He joined up to get a job, to show he wasn't scared. All wrapped up in that army crowd, he thought he'd be prepared. Well at the age of seventeen, he was forced to choose. Now at the age of twenty-one, he's in Catch 22 GO!

He joined up for just three years, it seemed a small amount, but what they didn't tell him was the first two didn't count. At the age of seventeen, how was he to know that at the age of twenty-one he'd still have more to go? Tin soldier! He signed away his name Tin soldier!No chance of cash or fame. Tin soldier! Well now he knows the truth! Tin soldier! He signed away his youth.

He joined up 'cause dad knew right, to do right by his son. Well now he hates and he counts the days that mark time on square one. At the age of seventeen he did what he was told. Now at the age of twenty-one, tin still won't turn to gold! Tin soldier! He signed away his name Tin soldier! No chance of cash or fame Tin soldier! Well now he knows the truth Tin soldier! He signed away his youth

About Face To the left, right, left right left, To the left, left, left right left… He thought the age of seventeen he'd fall in line too soon. Now at the age of twenty-one he still marches two by two. One-two-three-four One-two-three-four One-two-three-four ONE-TWO-THREE-GO!

Tin soldier! He signed away his name Tin soldier! No chance of cash or fame Tin soldier! Well now he knows the truth Tin soldier!He signed away his youth Tin soldier! What is he fighting for? Tin soldier! To win a fucking war? Tin soldier! Tin soldier!

Signed away his name (x2)

Toxic Toast

What Was Was Over

Do I really wanna step in here? I feel like my father at the horse track when he's down to his last sawbuck. Do I really wanna step in here? I'm not as sure as I appear. Tell me should we make this move and if it seems pathetic, pardon me. I'm not as sure as I appear.

Thought it over, thought I'd walk over and over coffee we could chat but then, then I thought again 'cause what was was over and now I know that. Thought I'd call, we could talk it over. I knew that wouldn't work somehow what was was over and I should just get over and that is where I'm at right now.

I'm really glad that you are here. What could be could beat what was? We are is at any rate, yeah I'm really glad that you are here. Thought it over, thought I'd walk over and over coffee maybe chat but then, then I thought again 'cause what was was over now I know that. Thought I'd call we could talk it over I knew that wouldn't work somehow 'cause what was was over and I should just get over and that is where I'm at right now.

And we are is because what was is now was. Pray for rain, it never does and after all that we've been through this is gonna have to do. We are is because what was is now was. Pray for rain, it never does. And after all that we've been through this is gonna have to do.

Where You Come From

It's not where you come from It's more where you're going And knowing the going might get strange The world's greatest writers Are all drunks and fighters Get going, that isn't going to change Will you still wager on the egg? Is it the egg or are you chicken? There's an outside possibility Your life might start to kick in Your heart will start the race Will you chase or set the pace? Brace yourself The plot's about to thicken

It's not where you come from It's more where you're going And knowing the going might get strange The world's greatest writers Are all drunks and fighters Get going, that isn't going to change It's been a thousand years or two And still the seconds keep on clicking Clogging cogs and greasing gears Still you can't stop the clock from ticking It's time that's overrated And being great's become outdated The apples, oranges? Not worth picking It's not where you come from It's more where you're going And knowing the going might get strange The world's greatest writers Are all drunks and fighters Get going, that isn't going to change Come on! Where is it you're going? Who was it who said it? Which stones are worth throwing? Who will we discredit? A pathetic aesthetic In a world less poetic It's not where you come from It's going, go get it It's not where you come from It's more where you're going And knowing the going might get strange The world's greatest writers Are all drunks and fighters Get going, that isn't going to change It's not where you come from It's more where you're going And knowing the going might get strange The world's greatest writers Are all drunks and fighters Get going, that isn't going to change Go!

Where is it you're going? Who was it who said it? Which stones are worth throwing? Who will we discredit? A pathetic aesthetic In a world less poetic It's not where you come from It's going, go get it (x4)

Where'd You Go?

hello? checked the clock when I got home and realized I was alone sat for hours by the window wonderin' where did you go? couldn't eat or sleep at all took the pictures off the wall paced the place as time moves slow and I'm wondering where did you go? Where'd you go? Where'd you go? I wanna know Lit a cigarette I couldn't smoke wound the clock until it broke went to bed then took a shower stared at TV for an hour did the dishes, made the bed read a book I've never read any minute you will show and I'm wondering where did you go? Where'd you go? Where'd you go? I wanna know

Where did you go?(4x) I opened the fridge, I opened a beer and played a tape I couldn't hear emptiness began to grow and I'm wondering where did you go? Watched the sun come up from the back stairs thought about the last few years I lost control, I screamed, I cried I punched a pole and went inside packed my things called a friend wished this emptiness would end wrote a note then tore it up poured the beer into a cup sat on the couch, drank it slow wondering where did you go? I realized I couldn't stay grabbed my things and I went away Where'd you go? Where'd you go? I wanna know!
