Laying on the bathroom floor
Kitty licks my cheek once's more
And I clould try
But waking up is harder
When you wanna die
Walter's on the telephone
Tell him I am not at home
'Cause I think that I am going
To a place where I am always high
My name 's Elizabeth
My life is shitt and piss
Going to your funeral part I
Going to your funeral now and feeling
I could scream
Everything goes away
Driving down the highway through the
Perfect sunny dream
A perfect day for perfect pain
Look at all the people with
The flowers in their hands
They put the flower on the box
That's holding all the sand that was?
That was once?
That was once you
Honolulu hurricane I knew
That you were not insane
Living in the insane world
Smiling like it's no big deal
Scabby wounds that never heal
The woman was only a girl
Look at all the people with
Their heads down in their hands
When everything I'm feeling
Makes it hard to understand
That, uh
What I need to miss?
It's what I need to miss?
Is you
Going to your funeral and
I'm feeling like a fool
No one's gonna take the blame
Thinking 'bout the days of
Hanging out behind the school
Everything goes away
Cancer for the cure
The kids are diggin' up a brand
New hole
Where to put the deadbeat mom
Grandpa's happy watching video p***
With the closed-caption on
And father knwos best
About suicide and smack
Well, hee hee hee
Cancer for the cure
Cancer for the cure
Buckle-up and endure now baby
Cancer for the cure
-Ol blue eyes is back again
But he never was here in the first place
A heart attach may be something to fear
But take a look out back
'Cause Courtney need love
And so do I
Well, hee hee hee
Cancer for the cure
Cancer for the
Cure my baby
Buckle-up and endure now sweet thing
The cancer for the cure
My descent into madness
Springfield's looking pretty dusty today
I see their dream coming undone
The view from inside ward nine affords this much
A town teeming with the unloved
Close the window and lock it so it's good and tight
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la
Turning eighteen and trying not to look too lost
-Have a not so nice day-
The jacket makes me straight so I can just sit back
And bake
You know I think I'm gonna stay
Talking very loud but no one hears a word I say
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la
Come visit me tonight at eight o)clock and then you'll
See how I am not the crazy one
Voices tell me I'm the s**t
Twenty days go by and everyday looks the same
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la la la
I'm the s**t
3 speed
Got a 3 speed and banana seat
Sitting back on the sissy bar
Went to Sev and got a drink
Wish I was driving in Daddy's car
And I looked up at the sky last night
And I thought I saw a bomb
And why won't you just tell me
What's going on
Riding down on Springhill Road
Meeting Alfred out in the woods
Dogs bite and mosquitos bite
Scratching the itch that makes it
Feel good
And I looked up at the sky last night
All I saw was a pretty blonde
And why won't you just tell me
What's going on?
Life is funny
But not ha ha funny
Peculiar I guess
You think I got it all going my way
Hen why am I such a f*****g mess?
Want a pony and a birthday cake
Want a party with a scary clown
Kneel down and bow to the princess
Kneel down for the queen of the town
And I looked up at the sky last night
And I thought I saw a bomb
And why won't you just tell me
What's going on?
Tell me what's going on
Hospital Food
Coming through the alley
Trying walk without a sound
It doesn't really matter
'cause there ain't no one around
Tip toe through the alley and
Tip toe through your life
You still got it coming
Be it gun be it knife
Next thing you know
You're eating hospital food
Karaoke castration
Take the wasp alive
He's gonna sting you anyway
And take you to the hive
Yesterday was suckin' and
Tomorrow's looking bad
Who knew that today
Was the only I had?
Hospital food
Want some hospital food
Hospital food
Delicious hospital food
In your tribute album to the world
You must never forget
To sing the one about the cat
Who's always getting wet
He's always got a problem
He's a very bitter dude
And now he is complaining
'bout his hospital food
Hospital food
It's gonna help the medicine go down
Want some hospital food
Gonna take a walk without a sound
A litlle hospital food
Helps the spoonful of sugar come up
I want some hospital food
In your blender and in my cup
Electro-shock blues
Feeling scared today
Write down 'i am ok'
A hundred times the doctors say
I am ok
I am ok
I'm not okay
Skin is crawling off
Mopping the sweaty drops
Sticking around for this s**t
Another day
Another day
Not another day
Pink pill feels good
Finally understood
Take me in your warm ambrace
I am trying
I am trying
Efils' God
Efils good and the time is right
I'll bundle-up and slip away
The count is down and the drip is up
It's time to split this hunk of clay
Now you can bring back my suitcase
But you can't bring me
And you can have all the money
'cause you say that you must
But if you think that it matters
Take a look at me
And don't close your eyes
As I turn into dust
Efils good
Don't tell me that I can 't do this
As if you don't know
How efils good
Last stop: this town
You're dead but the world keeps spinning
Take a spin through the world you left
It's getting dark a little too early
Are you missing the dearly bereft?
I'm gonnafly on down for the
Last stop to this town
What?
I'm gonna fly on down then fly away
Well, alright
Get down
Takin' a spin through the neighborhood
The neighbors scream
Watchya talkin' bout?
'Cause they don't know how to
Let you in
And I can't let you out
What if I was not your only friend
In this world
Can you take me where you're going
If you're never coming back
I'm gonna fly on down for the
Last stop to this town
I'm gonna fly on down then
Fly away on my way
Get down
Why don't we take a ride away up high
Through the neighborhood
Up over the billboards and the factories
And smoke
I'm gonna fly on down for the
Last stop to this town
Yeah
I'm gonna fly on down then
Fly away on my way
Fly away
Get down
Baby Genius
Baby genius
Look how you've grown
Where do you go from here?
Didn't we have some good times
After all is said and done?
Small body and small mind
Big head and big headaches
My back is broken
Baby genius
Find a new ride
Climbing to the moon
So I wrote it all in a letter
But I don't know if it came
But the nurse she likes my writing
So she keeps it just like me
So that it won't get away
I won't be denied this time
'Fore I go out of my mind over matters
Got my foot on the lader
And I'm climbing up to the moon
Got a sky that looks like heaven
Got an earth that looks like s**t
And it's getting hard to tell where
What I am ends
And what they're making me begins
And I won't be denied this time
'Fore I go out of my mind over matters
Got my food on the ladder
And I'm climbing up to the moon
Saturday in the yard
They'll bring you by
We'll lay down on the grass
And watch as the sky closes in
I won't be denied this time
'Fore I go out of my minf over matters
Got my food on the ladder
And I'm climbing up to the moon
Ant farm
Hate a lot ofthings
But I love a few things
And you are one of them
Hard to believe
After all of these years
But you are one of them
Walk down the street
I'm thinking:
Everybody move along
I've got a sad-hearted needing
To belong
Nevertheless
It's all the mess you made
But I can't let it go
Walk down the street
I'm thinking:
Look at all the ants in a farm
I've got a sad-hearted feeling
To harm
Hate a lot of thing
But I love a few things
And you are one of them
Dead of winter
Standing in the dark outside the house
Breathing in the cold and sterile air
Well I was thinking how it must feel
To see that little light
And watch it as it disappears
And fades into the night
Si I know you're going pretty soon
Radiation sore throat got your tongue
Magic markers tattoo you
And show it where to aim
And strangers break their promises
You wan't feel any
You won't feel any pain
And the streets are jammed with cars
Rockin' their horns
To race to the wire
Of the unfinished line
Thought that I'd forget all about the past
But it doesn't let me run too fast
And I just wanna stand outside
And know that this is right
And this is true
And I will not
Fade into
Fade into the night
Standing here in the dark
The medication is wearing off
See this watch she gave me?
Well it still ticks away
The days I'm claiming back
For me
The medication is wearing off
Gonna hurt not a little, alot
Keep on tickin' you're not lickin' me
Step on a crack break your mother's heart
Red light green light black
Suicide e-mail do not delete
Plug it back in the jack
Start to be what they want you to be
And you see yourself as they see you
Sunrise on the corner of
Sunset and Alvarado
I think what the hell do I do now
Watch the day disintegrate
So I can stay up late and wait
See this watch she gave me?
Well it still ticks away
P. S. You rock my world
I was at a funeral the day I realized
I wanted to spend my life with you
Sitting down on the steps at the
Old post office
The flag was flying at half-mast
And I was thinking' bout how
Everyone is dying
And maybe it's time to lie
I don't know where we're going
I don't know what we'll do
Walked in to the Thrif-tee
Saw the man with the hollow eyes
Who didn't give me all my change
But it didn't me this time
'cause I know I've only got
This moment
And it's good
I went to the gas station
Old woman honked her horn
Waiting for me to fix her car
I don't know where we're going
I don't know what we'll do
Laying in bed tonight I was thinking
And listening to all the dogs
And the sirens and the shots
And how a careful man tries
To didge the bullets
While a happy man takes a walk
And maybe it's time to live
