Track Name: A Profane Statement
It’s not a fucking lack
Of intelligence
It’s not a by-product
Of a limited vocabulary

Lack of artistic
Inspiration I think not
I’ll say whatever the fuck I want

You can insult my intelligence
Until your face turns red
But first think of the stupidity
Of creating words that cannot be said

Why does it offend you to hear it?
Your mind is already closed, why not your ears?
No one is making you fucking listen
Or agree

I don’t care what you do
Instead of shit, you can say “poo”
Just don’t expect me to do it too

Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck… etc.
Track Name: Tightrope Without a Net
I wish I could be like you
No worries, no regrets
But that's just not who I am

Live the day for today
There’s no tomorrow
And no turning back

I apologize - I just can’t close my eyes
Responsibility has got me by the balls
Something’s holding me back

Tomorrow is a predator
Just one step behind
But it never catches up

Obedience caused
By consequence
Enslaved into submission

Well, the paved road ends here
Goin’ off the beaten path
Skydiving - minus the parachute
Tightrope without a net
Track Name: Uninvited
You might think it’s wrong
But don’t hate her for what she’s done
You’re s’posed to love her unconditionally
Till the end of time

She didn’t know it’d get out of hand
Your new grandson wasn’t part of the plan

So she let you down
Just forgive her and move on
With your brand new life
It just might work out

You did all you could
Don’t do more than you should

In her time of need
How dare you turn your back and cede
She’s gonna need support
To get her back onto her feet

If she had known what her actions would bring
She’d have zipped up, and kept herself clean

Just open your mind, try to understand
Your new grandson wasn’t part of the plan
Track Name: Lost and Found
Hardly had a chance
She wipes away a tear from her pretty eyes
Tries to hide
Doesn’t want to let on
Crying is a sign of weakness and she’s strong
So she says

Things won’t change
So much easier to say that nothing’s wrong
Like the wound that doesn’t hurt
’Til you see the spreading crimson on your shirt

Ignore it, it’ll leave you alone
So she says

Abandoned in the cold
Fragile heart of hers hurt one too many times
Not again
Learned her lesson now
You won't have shattered dreams if you don’t dream
So it seems

Don’t need you
Don’t need anyone, she’s just fine on her own
Trust is not in her vocabulary
She's lost faith in humanity

Swear she’d never like another guy
With all the pain no wonder why
But she’s watching life go by
And sometimes when she’s all alone
It feels like she’s against the world
Disappointment's worn out its welcome

Don’t push me away
Track Name: I Don’t Date Mormons (’Cuz They Don't Date Me)
I don’t date Mormons
I don’t date Mormons
I don’t date Mormons
’Cuz they don’t date me!
Track Name: Christine
From the first moment I saw her I felt my pant pockets getting tight
I knew just who I would be dreaming of in bed that night
She's got the nicest legs, she shows ’em off but she’s no slut
She's got all the curves, she’s even got the nicest butt

I got it all planned out we’re gonna get married someday
The only problem is she doesn't even know my name

Christine - she’s the finest chick at my school
And you know it’d really be cool
If she’d go out with me
Christine - you'd never see me frown
I’d be the happiest guy around
I’d be so lucky

I can’t keep my eyes off her long blonde hair, enticing eyes
Whenever I’m around her I can’t walk I’m paralyzed
I would do anything and everything to make her glad
I think about her all the time, man, I really want her bad

All the guys would say, “Well, there goes Nick, check out his chick!”
They’d all be so jealous, they all want her to suck their dick
Track Name: Still Searching
In this world I can’t find my understanding
All others way aside
Under every rock I look but none is found
All others weigh beside me

And I wonder where and when I’ll find my understanding
Without using and losing understanding… and I’ll wait

*waiting*

Time - where has it gone?
It’s flying by and I don’t have wings
I need to get a job
So I can get on with my life
Track Name: Deadbeat Dad
Your average man of thirty-nine
Unfaithful husband and father of five
Spends all of his time at work adding up sums
Always worked better with numbers than he did with his sons

He’d rather be at work
Than at home with his family
Hell, isn’t he the one who pays for what they need?
He’s gotta make ends meet
’Cuz money don't grow on trees

He’ll be home late tonight - got a project due
A presentation to give, a meeting to go to
A workaholic to the max, he never has a free moment
One day he’ll stop and wonder just where all the time went

One day he wakes up, but the nightmares still linger
He’s just like his father he thinks with a shiver
Once upon a time ago he vowed he would not turn out this way
But he became the thing he hated most anyway
Why did he waste his life away?
Track Name: Idiotic Patriotic
Yeah, I love the USA
The greatest country in the world
Where we have the freedom to do what we want
Just as long as it’s what the government wants us to do
Where all men are created equal
Just some more than others
But aren’t we all brothers?

Yeah, I love the USA
I’d die for it any day
I’m sure it’d do the same for me some day
I support the country that lets children starve
And people die in the streets
Just as long as none of them are me

Hoist the flag red white and blue
I’m so proud and you should be, too
Of the country that gives us free speech
Just as long as we don’t try to use it to impeach
Where we drive on a parkway
And park on a driveway
Where you can have it your way

Yeah, I love the USA
Host to racism and poverty
Land of the free, home of the brave
I have the privilege to recite the pledge
Of allegiance every day
Too bad no one understands what it says
Track Name: Toys R Us Kid
Old enough
Yet still wet behind ears
In between teat and wean
Pushing me

Out to sea
Anchor still strapped on feet
Break away, still at bay
Uncertain

Where do I go now?
All I’ve ever known
Been right here at home
Flailing
And failing the test
Feelings unexpressed
Fell out of the nest
Please catch me

I’m falling

Training wheels
Abandoned now for good
On my own
Great unknown
All alone
And I’m alone to make my bed
Track Name: Miracle Grow
What if I woke up today
And found my memory had slipped away
And all those nights we spent together
Were gone from my mind forever

Everything you showed me
The beauty of love
Emotions that felt so good
I wouldn’t know of

Stuck in a dark corner
A plant has no way to grow
It needs light like I need love
And you are my window

You opened your heart to me
A feeling so foreign and new
Which helped me open my heart too
And realize I love you

Realization complete
Took a little time but now I see
That depending on somebody else
Is not as bad as loneliness feels

I can’t live a day
Without thinking of you
So I write this song to say
Whatever we go through
I love you

You opened up my eyes
Showed me where my heart lies
Track Name: Just a Slice of Butter and Some Bread
When they came, we were ready
With atom bombs pointed towards the sky
Panic swept across the nations
You could see the terror in their eyes

Can’t you see? The aliens are invading
It’s gonna be them or me
I’m making sure it won’t be me
I gotta retain my right to be free

So the war raged on
We didn’t know what was going on
And the streets ran bloody red
If we’d only been aware
They’d come to see if we could spare
Just a slice of butter and some bread

They didn’t come to steal our children
You’ve had it wrong from the start
They didn't come to destroy us
They came asking for our help
But it’s too late now
We were too narrow-minded
Now we’re forever binded by
This treachery we’ve done

Who’s to blame?
Track Name: Family Values
Mom and Dad, this one’s for you
How does it feel
To see your proud foundation fall?
Fucked up family
The brick wall
That you built so proudly

Tumbling down in shame
The same old story
Rotting me away
From the inside out

Mom and Dad, this one’s on you
Your crystal ball
Didn’t see this one coming
Everything’s just fine
Ignore the crime
Nothing can make you fall

Your reputation’s scratched
Tarnished with the truth
The “serpent” slipped right through
And there’s no going back
Once you’ve seen the truth

Your futile efforts to train them in tradition
Have only given way to mutiny
Always falling short of expectations
But there’s no falling from disgrace

I’m not coming home
Track Name: I Wanna Fuck Your Mom
I think you can figure this one out...
