okay so you're feeling all alone i heard it on the radio in a broadcast from the sky someday i'm gonna rock the boat and i'm gonna wanna know why it's a great day to be outside keep me up with your emotions at night then you can shoot me down over the ocean and sigh certain death haven't had the heart to yet maybe by the time we meet you can recognize a change in me baby, certain death haven't had the chance to yet maybe by the time we meet you can recognize a change in me i could count the times that it crossed my mind sick in bed and dying from something i don't have and will never have and your best friends won't be your friends anymore won't pretend anymore to let you down or try keep me up with your emotions at night then you can shoot me down over the ocean and sigh certain death haven't had the heart to yet maybe by the time we meet you can recognize a change in me baby, certain death haven't had the chance to yet maybe by the time we meet you can recognize a change in me

there you go you take your medicine even though acetaminophen will control nearly everything that you know ah well it's not enough everybody says you're so messed up but you're no idiot on the sidelines take a chance on a modern drug  and maybe you'll survive the night it's amazing what they do today with animals and chemicals and make up looking good to me so hit the pavement hard to say you're not already famous if there's a place you should be call the ambulance and they'll take you there for free try to look as sick as you on the magazine take a trip on the down side ah well - it's not enough everybody says you're so messed up but you're no idiot on the sidelines take a chance on a modern drug  and maybe you'll survive the night you say you wanna try but you can't get it right you think that you're so bright why do the same thing twice? if you can take your life then you can fake a smile even when you die, yeah, it's not enough

bell rung honey i wanna run cause they don't say that i am the nicest and it's such a nice day to be on the main stay class skipping and violence and ordinarily it's scary baby i don't feel so very good like you say i should feeling so excited it's the best thing that i've ever found (talking down do you) feeling suicidal there's not a chance i'll be coming around (dropping out of school) i'll take a shot but i thought that you didn't really have any more of your secrets and you can plan but you won't understand when the teachers come and jump you at recess and stomach's turning books are burning i found better things than learning yeah i ain't going again unless you hold my hand i'll be coming around i'll be coming around i'll be coming around i'll be coming around

hey ugly you've tried the drugs  now you gotta realize that you're not enough to be a celebrity like all the people on your TV you could do with a nip and tuck  and a major operation that could fuck you up you're grafted onto the scene  and implanted in a limosine if you never wanna act your age well you're always as young as you wanna feel if you never wanna biodegrade it's six to eight weeks to completely heal count backwards here comes the numbness don't be afraid it's just the taste of blood yes you'll feel free with a little plastic surgery all alone like a hit and run and you're so pretty when you bite your tongue yeah you're gonna be seen black and blue on the silver screen if you never wanna act your age well you're always as young as you wanna feel if you never wanna biodegrade it's six to eight weeks to completely heal everybody says baby that you're something and nobody's ever gonna know what's underneath your face cause i know it's gonna be nice to say god gave you all the gifts that you got today and i know it's gonna be nice to say you hate everything changing just cause you're famous

Rubber rooms and taking funny pills Filling up on notes and dollar bills It's the price you pay for feeling okay You're the strangest girl I've ever met Sending weird signals to my head I've been thinking about fixing my brain But I'm afraid I won't feel the same 'Cause baby it's all I do I've been thinking about fixing my brain But I'm afraid I won't feel the same 'Cause baby it's all I do Spending more and more time up in bed Thinking about the things I think you said It's been on my mind and it's hard to find Bad habits come and come and go I'm afraid my mind is getting slow I swear it's not so hard to understand I just wanna get in the sun again sun again I swear it's not so hard to understand I just wanna get in the sun again sun again

Bad Sign 03:55
i was laying on the floor when you were gone like it was something i could die from now my head aches and your friends all think i'm dumb you said it's just a bit of bad blood i don't feel great but it doesn't bother me because i don't have the energy and the x-ray doesn't tell me anything or show me what the hell you see in me all my time has turned to days that i will waste till my dying day and all my bones have realigned and now i guess it was a bad sign i was praying to the lord for some fun but i guess he didn't have some and betraying everything that i'd become just to prove it wasn't true love if i'm too late will you come and hurry me like a kid among the dying leaves if my heart breaks will you drug and carry me where we can talk about our chemistry all my time has turned to days that i will waste till my dying day and all my bones have realigned and now i guess it was a bad sign and now i guess it was a bad sign all my time has turned to days that i will waste till my dying day and when i tried i was ashamed and said i don't believe in saving face and all my clothes are still inside and broken up into little piles and all my bones have realigned and now i guess it was a bad sign now i guess it was a bad sign and now i guess it was a bad sign

it seems a little strange but i just can't explain why i'm tearing out a page and then i'm sending it out over the ocean and i've been feeling down lately ever since i met you baby people say i'm acting crazy they think i'm over-emotional yeah there's something wrong in my mind yeah (x3) well now everybody says it's funny but i can't say it seems very funny to me people come and go and i know now that you know that the noises in my throat say i'll take however long that it takes me i can't understand why i need to be your man i had the perfect plan but right now somehow i guess it all escapes me

Borderline 03:13
you're the best friend that i have sometimes i wish i was dead but you can't go changing everything you feel like changing can you i wish i was just like you i don't like my attitude but you can't go being everybody that you want to can you ain't nobody around i'm just sitting here by myself with next to nothing on my mind ain't nobody around i'm just sitting here by myself relaxing on the borderline you're the only girl i love i'm on many kinds of drugs i can't see and i can't breathe and i can't stay and i can't leave if it's good let's take it slow baby i'm a fucking joke and if i can i'll do my best and do it right regardless of this

gimme the mic cause i'm taking my life in an unexpected new direction i could care less about your breasts  or that your daddy never gave you very much attention i'm the same as i used to be  but i'm doing my best to make a good impression i don't wanna go on but i don't wanna be long  in this condition did you know that i'm your biggest fan? i just wanna thank you for the add can i introduce you to my dad stop cause i'm feeling like a dead man  or the way i seem cause i'm living under ground with a fake ID cause i'm a dead man or the way i seem cause i'm twitching and i'm learning slowly i'm turning my cell phone on in the middle of the interview i'm digging a shallow grave to eliminate my point of view gotta get suggestions how best to get your attention, tell you i'm cool i don't wanna go on but i don't wanna be long in this condition cause i'm feeling like a dead man or the way i seem cause i'm living under ground with a fake ID cause i'm a dead man or the way i seem cause i'm twitching and i'm learning slowly

drunk and losing ground broken up and down the only way i've found to shake your body free i've got what it takes to help you make mistakes to put you through a phase that's harder than it seems i'm not saying anything you haven't heard before no one's gonna wait for you to wake up anymore changing all your scenery saying you don't care but you're not going anywhere yeah spending all your days frozen in your place rearrange your face to ways you better be having not enough you'll never measure up the alcohol and drugs are better off in me i'm not saying anything you haven't heard before no one's gonna wait for you to wake up anymore changing all your scenery saying you don't care but you're not going anywhere yeah
