 +===== Mighty Mighty Bosstones =====
 +==== 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)

 +==== A Sad Silence ====
 +Two years and 
 +extra days, a block away he'd head to hang

 +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

 +==== 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

 +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

 +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!

 +==== 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 ​

 +==== 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
 +
 +
 +==== Drunks and Children ====
 +Don't mind when it 
 +happens
 +no problem when I am sayin' it,
 +but when I lose my mind
 +kick my behind
 +because I hate when my mind keeps replayin'​ it.
 +I'm not braggin',​ and I'm not proud
 +I hang around a drunken crowd
 +we are happy, that I can say
 +and until we're not, I kid you not
 +we're gonna stay that way.
 +We're down, down, down,
 +one more day of sayin' we won't be no more,
 +down, down, down,
 +one more good day of sayin' we won't be no more
 +drinkin'​ the other day
 +I said "I love you", you turned away
 +maybe the drinkin'​
 +it made me cry,
 +but I'm a happy, very happy, very happy guy
 +drunks and children they tell the truth
 +that's just what I am, I'm drunken youth
 +and when I am drinkin'​ I don't know why
 +but I'm a happy, very happy, very happy guy
 +sometimes when when I'm playin'​
 +I never watch what I'm sayin'
 +sometimes I lose my head
 +I lose my head and things get said
 +I never should have said
 +sometimes I get housed
 +I get housed I get soused
 +and shoot off my mouth
 +and sometimes I can't get out
 +and I don't know what I'm talkin'​ about
 +you know i've made mistakes,
 +I've had my ups and downs
 +my ins and outs
 +my share of bad breaks
 +but when it's all
 +been said and done
 +I raise my beer and I swear
 +"God it's been fun!"
 +Good God oh my God good (x4) it's been fun !

 +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

 +==== 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 ​

 +==== 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 ​

 +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 ​

 +dime for a dozen if that's what you're after A moment of silence a lifetime of

 +
 +==== 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

 +==== Pictures to Prove it ====
 +Well you insisted ​
 +the day you walked away
 +that we shared nothing, but I've got something

 +you're not here to listen, and we were never good at that
 +let's set the record straight, we shared something great
 +even though now nothing'​s where we're at
 +pictures to prove it, I've got the proof
 +when you hit the bricks, I hit the roof
 +I hit the bottle, put the pictures on the bar
 +I'll always have these pictures, but I don't know where you are

 +if you saw them, I'm sure
 +you'd be forced to remember
 +what we don't have anymore
 +I've got a pile of pictures
 +I've got a whole stack of proof
 +I've got pictures to prove it, I've got, I've got
 +pictures to prove it, smudged with fingerprints and tears
 +cigarette ashes
 +and our first few happy years
 +they'​re old now, they'​re faded and the edges all are frayed
 +I'll always have these pictures
 +but I wish that you had stayed
 +I've got pictures to prove it
 +if you saw them, I'm sure
 +you'd be forced to remember
 +what we don't have anymore
 +I've got a pile of pictures
 +I've got a whole stack of proof
 +I've got pictures to prove it and all I ever do is
 +stare at the pictures for hours on end
 +they tell the truth to me
 +while I'm sure you just pretend
 +and you deny we ever happened and swear it never was that way
 +even you'll admit when I submit to you exhibit A right?
 +I've got pictures to prove it
 +I'm not just blowing smoke
 +If you don't believe me, believe them
 +no this ain't no joke

 +==== 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.

 +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'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.

 +==== 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

 +==== 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

 +==== Toxic Toast ====
 +Queensbury ah #8
 +
 +hell hotel punk rock estate
 +way way back back in the day
 +100 years it seems that way
 +just across from Wayne'​s Junk Store
 +3 floors up then straight ahead
 +if someone thought to lock the door
 +use the fire escape instead
 +someone'​s always up to something
 +one thing'​s always understood
 +if nothing happened in a minute
 +wait another, something would
 +avoid the landlord spend the rent
 +raising hell with reckless style
 +and sure our time was poorly spent
 +but toxic toast still makes me smile
 +looking back now - not sure how
 +we made it through, not all of us but most
 +still haunts me - like it wants me
 +I remember I remember I remember - toxic toast
 +this stuff'​s 100-30 proof
 +Glue threw the TV off the roof
 +the whole damn place just wasn't stable
 +Andrew trashed the coffee table
 +Rico's here, the party'​s reeling
 +Colam'​s been spray painting the ceiling
 +can't make a call and man it's cold
 +alcohol and stranglehold
 +toxic toast Jake coined the phrase
 +haven'​t thought about it for a while
 +mindless endless nights and days
 +but toxic toast still makes me smile
 +looking back now - not sure how
 +we made it through, not all of us but most
 +still haunts me - like it wants me
 +I remember I remember I remember - toxic toast
 +Someone'​s always up to something
 +one thing'​s always understood
 +if nothing happened in a minute
 +wait another, something would
 +looking back now not sure how
 +we made it through, not all of us but most
 +still haunts me like it wants me
 +I remember I remember I remember - toxic toast
 +looking back now not sure how
 +we made it through, not all of us but most
 +still haunts me like it wants me
 +I remember I remember I remember - toxic toast
 +
 +
 +==== We Should Talk ====
 +Don't touch that 
 +dial, don't click the clicker
 +we love to watch, they love to bicker
 +don't turn the knob or change the channel
 +hey! where the hell did they get this panel?
 +where are they from? where have they been?
 +they air it out, we suck it in suck it in
 +up on stage all in a row
 +at each other'​s throats all through the show
 +the mood is tense, the tension'​s thicker
 +we watch, they fight, just who here's sicker?
 +we're not so bad, I guess after all
 +their problems make ours seem so small
 +we'd be much better off I bet
 +if we'd turn off the tv set turn it off now
 +she broke down and he came clean
 +we stay glued, glued to the screen
 +just how much more can we take?
 +thank God here comes a station break
 +we're not so bad, I guess after all
 +their problems make ours seem so small
 +we'd be much better off I bet
 +if we turned off the tv set turn it off now
 +don't think that we can take much more
 +we've lost it now man, that's for sure
 +lost another day, check out the clock
 +pull the plug, shut it down, turn it off, now,
 +we should talk
 +
 +
 +==== 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.
 +
 +
 +==== What's At Stake ====
 +Stick that needle ​
 +right through your arm, do everything that does you harm
 +so you're lying there on the floor, see ya staggering out the door
 +try it and you like it and you know you can, take it on
 +take your real life till you soon discovered where you are,
 +you don't know, so you're at the bottom with a nose full of blow
 +don't know what you're doin to me, so you're lying there so helplessly
 +get yourself back up before its too late, or a life of pain will be your fate
 +
 +you don't care about anyone, just as long as you have your fun
 +or as long as you get your fix, now you're taking a deep six
 +try it and you like it and you know you can take it on
 +take your real life till you soon discovered where you are,
 +you don't know so you're at the bottom with a nose full of blow
 +don't know what you're doin to me so you're lying there so helplessly
 +get yourself back up before its too late or a life of pain will be your fate

 +get yourself back up before its too late or a life of pain will be your fate
 +what's at stake (x4)
 +
 +
 +==== 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!
