Wide Awake Bored

Brand New Low

Over and over I keep wondering why
Then I give up and see that look in your eyes
Cause if I trip and fall, I'll be to blame
And if I hit the wall, I'll still be the same
Wasting your time with your so called friends
The ones you adore and the ones you pretend
And it's kind of sad and deranged
But it's not so bad that it can't be explained

Cause in my mind
It's all a waste of time
And there's no excuse at all
Then I realize, surprise
You were right all along

And I want to know
Have I gone too far
Have I sunk to a brand new low
And I want to know
If I've gone too far
Cause I've lost all my self control

Guily as charged
I've been convicted and tried
Was it too much to ask for you to take my side
Cause there's nothing here left to defend
When it's always me
That you blame in the end

Cause in my mind it's the perfect crime
And there's no excuse at all when I realize
Surprise you were right all along

Nothing is what it seems, to me
you're sleeping without the dreams
Without you, nothing defines me
When I'm slipping away
It's only you that can find me
and I'm over my head,
Again I'm falling from end to end

American Psycho

What's the problem with the human race
(With someone like you)
No matter where I turn
I can't escape your double face
Don't want to listen to the radio
(Cause they don't know)
Or stick around just to hear I told you so

How could we make it without you
I should have known better to doubt you
I thought I'd heard the end of it

And now I know how far you'd go
To be the next freak show
American psycho
Cover of the magazines
Patron Saint to troubled teens
Wish I never heard your name

Tomorrow could be just another day
(Means nothing to you)
A misdemeanor or a felony, that's ok
Don't want to wait for a second chance
(So take a stance)
It's your turn for the spotlight, the big dance

What am I supposed to do
When you know that it's all true
That you stole, that you lied
That you knew

Primadonna self absorbed
Wide awake and never bored
Party, binge and purge
And see results of plastic surgery
Spotted at the hottest shows
Interview on Charlie Rose
They all want a piece of you

Business

There's better ways to let me know
Leave a message, slip a note
In a place I'll never find
Should be careful of what you say
Could all catch up to you someday
Ignore it twice, you know
It won't go away

But everytime I listen
I get your words stuck in my head

And I know it's not my business
Do I mean anything at all
Cause I've been waiting for so long

Someone tell me what went wrong
Am I still getting dragged along
I've got the scars to prove it
You say you're happy and content
But every fight's the main event
And now I'm in the corner spitting blood and spent

But everytime I listen
I get your words stuck in my head
And I don't think I see things
Quite the same as you would want me to
I'd never be that cruel

Cheat Away

Say what you want about it
It just isn't true
Just concerning me and you
Is it any wonder anyway
And nothing else to do

If you see it any other way
First you can go, later you can fake it so
Why make it any harder
Just tell them everything you know

Is it wise to make amends
No surprise, you're among friends

So say goodbye
And find a place you'll keep
Hidden somewhere cold and deep
Don't disappoint us all
And cheat away your time

Why does everyone ignore it
It won't go away
It'll get you through the day
Doesn't anybody know by now
There's never anything to say

Is it wise to make amends
No surprise, you're among friends

So say goodbye
And find a place you'll keep
Hidden somewhere cold and deep
Don't disappoint us all
And weep for old times

Save a cry
You'll need it in a week
And every holiday retreat
Don't disappoint us all
And cheat away your time

I'm looking down the tunnel
But I can't see the light

Funny

Save your breath, don't waste your time
I can tell what's on your mind
No need to mention what we both know
It's quite a time you picked to tell me
It's quiet time and mostly lonely
And now it's time to save the past we know so well

It's not funny
We're not laughing like we did before
And it's not funny
It's just hurting more and more

Take your time to figure out
It's not that plain to see
And if you need someone to blame
Than you can blame it all on me
It's not the time you picked to tell me
It's more the way you want to show me
And that's all fine

It's not funny
We're not laughing like we did before
And it's not funny
It's just hurting more and more

You never told me
You never showed me
And now we're running cack and forth between two lines
And now all the little things are no concern at all

Say what you want,
We know that it's true (all brand new)
Now that we're older now, seems like it's all brand new
And we've never heard it before

Favorite Worst Enemy

If you could read my mind
Than I know you'd find everything you never say
You said you needed time
So I asked if you would mind
If I could do the same

Senses over blown
You're never coming, you're going

And it's driving me crazy
Knowing what's good for you
And I'm longing for the lazy days
But those were never good enough

I guess that you were right when you said I might
Really get bored with you
I never would have guessed
That it'd end in such a mess or that it'd be this soon

Cause there's something about you
But I can't put my finger on it
So hard to forget you
You're my favourite worst enemy

When you sat there laughing all about it
Did it make you feel any better about it
Can you try to hide it well enough
To fake it just for me
I doubt it

Wide Awake Bored

Wide Awake Bored

More's The Pity

I am everything
I am on the brink of still
It's not all it's true
Sitting on a sprinkler
Take my call and see
The receiver to your ear
When you bridge the leap
It will all become so clear

That there's not only one of me
Just look closely now
Count them all and you'll get three
That one's clever, this one's free
But it's your favourite
I hate more's the pity

I've seen everything
I can only think is true
Check my windowpane
If you can't enjoy the view
I could fall for less
I believe a thing you say
Write it down for me
And it will all come into play

There's not only one of me
Just look closely now
Count them all and you'll get three
That one's clever, this one's free
But it's your favourite
I hate more's the pity

Lined up in a row
Like little dolls, like bungalows
The reasons look the same
A newer version, same old game

I am everything
I am on the brink
I'm not anything
I could use a drink

Tell me what you see
You look close but it's not me
I'm not what you need
And I'll never ever be

I Don't Know

I know that I have to sleep at night
And we all need someone to blame
No one ever has to realize
That we all get tired again

I think I've been cast in the wrong play
My lines were written on the day before

I can see there's nothing out there
That I don't know, but I don't know
It can be such empty logic
That I don't know
I don't know

In the time it takes to understand
Is a pause where we like to complain
Noone is required to take a stand
And we all get time to explain

I think I left something behind
The lime green plastic olive branch before

I can see there's nothing out there
That I don't know, but I don't know
It can be such empty logic
That I don't know
I don't know

All at once it's a special favour
Wave a hand and it's all arranged for you
Though we know you're no bleeding saviour
We listen close it's true

Wear Me Down

Say something clever if you're conscious still
Cause you know hearing bad news
Gives me such a special thrill
I'm not here to save you
Watch your back or rearrange you
I don't know
Even so, I wouldn't take on you
Oh no

And I don't know how you can wear me down
In the blink of an eye
If I could just hold my ground
For a tenth of the time

Make me an offer I can't really use
A one time factory clearance that I can't refuse
I'm not here to save you
Watch your back or rearrange you
And nothing ever changes
You're still cynical and dangerous

But still you keep on trying to wear me down
In the blink of an eye
If I could just hold my ground
Atleast half of the time

You never get the point so what's the use
I'd never take that tone of voice with you
And We both know that that's not really true
Not really true
So what's the use

Noone's going to save you
Cause they can't rearrange you
And nothing ever changes
You're still cynical and dangerous

So now you just wear me down
In the blink of an eye
If I could just hold my ground
For a tenth of the time

So now you just wear me down
I'm lost, not found
You got me so tied and bound
I'm not quite sound

You're wearing me down
Quit wearing me down

Another Dollar

Maybe this time I'm finally losing my mind
Cause I could use the change
Haven't you heard?
Things are way more absurd
They're even kind of strange

Nothing you say could change me
And things are as bad as they can be
Forget who's right
I knew I was wrong all along

So why do we even bother?
Cause I don't recall inviting you here
You're spending another dollar watching me fall

You've placed the blame
It's too late to reclaim
The state of mind we're in
It doesn't look so good
I'd get out if I could
And never start again

You've tasted some brand new flavours
And used up the last of your favours
Forget who's wrong
I knew it'd be you all along

Just What They Told Me

I guess what concerns me the most
We're getting any younger so we like to boast
Are the cracks and fissures splintering our lovely lives?
Our acceptance of the shiny brand-new kitchen knives?

So I have decided not to live that way
I still behave in public
And I don't confuse the night with day
And I'm better off please don't say
We know you'll never live without
You have no way to keep it out

I pray
That I'll be saved before too long
Another two or three days
And I'll get it wrong

A patch of thistle
Measuring our early grave
With waxy gleam
We stroll along the colonnade

And I have decided not to live that way
I still behave in public
And I don't confuse the night with day
And I'm better off please don't say
We know you'll never live without
You have no way to keep it out

I did just what they told me
I'm just trying to make my way
I did just what they told me
