Track Name: B-Day
Today is your birthday
and everyone showed up
its you and all your friends
and even the ones that suck

Tomorrow you'll be older
today you'll be the same
yesterday was gone
and tonight youll be born again

Yeah, I wish you a bappy birthday
one that goes your way
I wish you all the things that I couldnt give
and lots of love everday

I wish you a bright new world
one of just our kind
I wish you joy and love
without blowing your mind

Tomorrow you'll be younger than today
full with life and will to stay
Yesterday has past and you've learned
from what the rude people have done´
In your life you have messed up but hasnt it been fun?
You see the old people float around and looks like their done
but you're not..

Yeah, I wish you a happy birthday
Ill give you all my heart
Ill remind that you are pretty and that this is just the start
Ill take you out to lunch and get you flowers next week
And never break your heart
cause I love you
Track Name: Better Without Me (ver. 2)
I like you better without me
My heart isnt there
I like to see you and hold you
And know that you're there

I see you are better
All big and grown up
You got popular and famous
And I just suck

Now that, you love me again
this is the sure deal to our end

You are handsome and great
but not my cake
I just need someone older
one with my age

You're getting mature
I wish I was too
But you're irrational
and I am too

And I'm awake
I know who I am
I know what I live for
and what I stand

I stand by my word
I stand by my heart
I know you're pratical
But I guess I'm not

Who are you
to know what I want
How are you sure
That I am the one

I know what I live for
I know what I want
I dont want you
You're just too much
Track Name: Better Without Me
I like you better without me
My heart isnt there
I like to see you and hold you
And know that you're there

I see you are better
All big and grown up
You got popular and famous
And I just suck

Now that, you love me again
this is the sure deal to our end

You are handsome and great
but not my cake
I just need someone older
one with my age

You're getting mature
I wish I was too
But you're irrational
and I am too

And I'm awake
I know who I am
I know what I live for
and what I stand

I stand by my word
I stand by my heart
I know you're pratical
But I guess I'm not

Who are you
to know what I want
How are you sure
That I am the one

I know what I live for
I know what I want
I dont want you
You're just too much
Track Name: Brit Rock Song
I wish I was like you
so certainly without a clue
I would even make up some things
that aren't true

I would give the advice that I want
to the ones I always taunt
I guess that woud just mean
I don't need you
Track Name: Drink, Drink, Drink
You tell me you're confused and want to be mine
such a cute little face, just to pass the time
if there was a lesson learned
i really didn't cut it
lets go downtown
and drink and drink and drink and drink

my head is a mess
i really do need to rest
but I wont because little is for the best
thornide frikles
and we drink drink drink drink and drink
Track Name: Hello
You love the crudeness of the streets
I wonder what you're like behind the sheets
i wonder if your life is for rock n roll
or if you just want become the the next nico

Theres no reason to be scared
you dont need the help or the pills
Dont be nervous and have no fear
I always come visit you my dear

I wonder where you are at night
In the allys of the underworld looking for your life
The slums and mud are your home
Hello Underground here I come

Pay no attention to what they say
or is that what you for you pray
Lets put on iggy, keith and lou
And listen to track 11 rock suicide
Track Name: Honey Toast
Butterflies and bumble bees
they'll all be singing
tulips and magnolias
they'll all be dancing
they just dont know
what they're awaiting
maybe its the winter
maybe its the snow

they dont know
what they waiting for
maybe its the end
maybe its the end (of their lives)

Lollipops and sweets
dont do they remind me
about suicidal tendencies
that Ive been seeing
they just dont know
what they're awaiting
maybe its the winter
maybe its the snow

they dont know
what they waiting for
maybe its the end
maybe its the end (of their lives)

Hand over the bottle
I just cant take it
Get me out of this dream
I wont make it
I just wasnt prepared
I never waited
ohh ohhh ohhhh ohhhhhhhhhhhhh
Track Name: It's All Up To Me
When I think I'm kind of glad
I guess I know I'm actually sad
But its all up to me

No need to fake it now
feel the pain you disallow
But its all up to me

Deal with it
make up your mind and sit
with ease
love, pain, drinks all the works
But its all up to me
Track Name: Lights Low
The lights turned low
Its time to put on a show
Put the singer isnt ready now

Gig was great
The crowd was there to take
But the band was highhhhhhhhhhhh

high
Track Name: Loren James
Loren James was scared so
she bit her nails off and then regretted it
Oh so worried
she thought the ghosts would get her now

oh, oh, oh
she thought the ghosts would get her now


Little did she know oh
it was the ghost of her ex boyfriend
she was so scared though
that he would recognize her and then attack

oh, oh, oh
she thought the ghosts would get her now
but even after death he didnt want her back

back, didnt want her back
if you can say, he sort
died of a heart attack

he was always honest to her
in her eyes love is a blur
and now, when she got older
she realized that she wrong
about the guy who lived her building where he sprong


so fed up, she took out her ouija board
to ask him if he loved her still
there was no answer
but who believes in ghosts anyway
Track Name: Mountain Song
When you think you're on a mountain
So high and tall and fresh
Look down and realize
it will passs

You wake up with your new husband
Or others and the like
Lay down and think that you missed
the best thing in your life

it will pass, it will pass

You're without your own true love
And just slowly wait for death
Shortly before you pull the trigger
it will pass

When you think you're full of joy
Or when you think you're not
in any situation
it will pass

it will pass, it will pass
Track Name: Pictures On The Wall
Now that my past love starts to fade
I find myself without a muse
how cynical can I be
I know you dont want to be with me
I still have your photographs with me
remind me daily of what could be

The pictures on the wall are so still
I wish you were around, oh I wish you around
But actually here with me
Or just anywhere you want to be, all long as its with me

They are so colored and vidid as we once were
In time they fade, in time the might fade
Looking to take new pictures of someone like her
But its not easy to find, might never be found

The pictures on the wall are so still
I wish you were around, oh I wish you around
But actually here with me
Or just anywhere you want to be, all long as its with me

Ill learn to be on my own, I need to learn on my own
Everything on my own, die alone
Track Name: She Reminds Me Of Flowers
she reminds me of flowers
shining in the sun
she smiles like no one
when all dull she is fun

they are there in the field
so bright and free
they are so humble
and know they could be a tree

and when the leafs turn dry
the seeds will fall
they will spread around
and sprout and the ones big and tall
all from the flower
thats ours

there they are outside
pretty and so fine
they are just standing around naked
you'd think that their out of the mind

she is loud when she wants to
and quiet when she dares
she is free like no one
and that makes most cry tears

and when the leafs turn die
the seeds will fall
they will spread around
and sprout and the ones big and tall

from the horizontal flower
thats

misguided and miss "so confused"
she wants more to life than there is the choose
she tries to help but falls on her back
and gets right back up but to give a pat on the back
she is more than advanced that makes people misunderstand, time is today and not to fear
you have to think freedome is here and is to come even when no hope is near
always reminds me of you are what you live and the choices youve made
today
Track Name: Superstar
behind a new trend, everyweek
individuality is for the weak
you cant afford i can tell
i bet your life's a living hell

how do you survive, im not sure
to all my dreams theres a cure

she wants to become a punk rock superstar
a super superstar with the fancy nails and hair
she wants to become a punk rock superstar
but shes nearly five foot tall and is too square

will you please please notice me
im over here and in conform
to all your trends and your norms
went through all bedrooms in the dorms

why wont i just fit in
this is the plan, that ill begin

she wants to become an r n b superstar
a mega superstar in jet plane in the air
she wants to become a r n b megastar
but she crashlanded just over there

she is a born western country star
a southern girl with fake boobs and bleached hair
she is a born western country star
but shes an alchoholic and with a blank stare

she is a ruled by black metal star
a gothic girl with black eyes and with black long hair
she is a ruled by black metal star
but she got a cold and in despair
Track Name: Vanish And Fade Away
its time to vanish
im ready to stay
im sorry but we're going away

there are so many things to say and do
yes there is but mainly you
im ready to fade away

I know just what ill do
I be less like me and more like you
Track Name: When You Say You Like Me
We'll be ok
Give it some time
I'll never be ok
because you're always on my mind

I'll meet your new friends
and pretend everything fine
I'll go out to lunch
and not know a line

I'll sing these songs to you
and hope you get the clue
Only time will tell
If I'll be in heaven or hell

Simple chords for this complex mind
How can I lose it if its not mine
Youll sing me a buarque rhyme
And never will be mine
Track Name: World Turning Around
Please, give me something to live for
Not something to die
Let me take a rest and easen up my mind
Take me to the beach and stay all day at shore
and watch the tides go up and fall back in some more

Its not the sun going down but the world turning around

Thank you for all of your help, I guess Im on my own
Its my takig of the world and there shouldnt be to morn
Why dont we go to bed and rest our sleepy heads
and wake up in the morning, laughing at ourselves
