Track Name: Love Is A Chain Store
They’re driving us out
We’re closing up shop
Lonely is the mom and pop
Lonely is the mom and pop
Where are protesters?
Where are the slogans and signs?
This will be a swift decline
This will be a swift decline
I wouldn’t be caught dead in love
I wouldn’t be caught dead in love
They’re popping up
On every street
High demand, they like it cheap
High demand, they like it cheap
Everywhere you turn
No matter where you go
Settling is the status quo
Settling is the status quo
I wouldn’t be caught dead in love
I wouldn’t be caught dead in love
‘Cause love is a chain store
I’m getting out
Not making my bed
I took the price tag off my head
I took the price tag off my head
Time to relocate
And when I’m deep in the black
I will buy this country back
I will buy this country back
I wouldn’t be caught dead in love
I wouldn’t be caught dead in love
‘Cause love is a chain store
The lonely are the mom and pop
Track Name: America Will Copy
You didn’t know that you were sad
Until you heard that song
You knew you’d never been in love
After you saw that film

But since then
You’ve had a few thoughts of your own
But you can’t tell me
You said it must be so

You didn’t know where you were at
Until they pointed at that map
Gave you numbers and an address
Where they could always find you

But since then
You’ve found a place of your own
But you can’t tell me where it is
You said it must be so

Because America will copy
And everyone will know
America will copy
And everyone will go

You faked death to stay alive
Track Name: Take Your Seatbelt Off
How did I get to be the way I am?
You want to know what my life’s been like?
Then take your seatbelt off
You’re going for a ride
You’re going for a ride
Have you ever felt so free?
Have you ever felt so trapped?
Can you tell the difference when you go this fast?
There really are no words
But I can show you what my heart feels like
Take your seatbelt off
You’re going for a ride
Out of control again
Hoping this crash will be my last
I have no place in the world
But it always takes me back
How did I get to be the way I am?
You want to know what my life’s been like?
Then take your seatbelt off
You’re going for a ride
You’re going for a ride
Track Name: Addicted To Morals
Resist it

Found the bodies of some strung out locals
Very clearly we’re addicted to morals
Oh, what a waste

Caring is masochistic
My conscience is masochistic
Perfection is masochistic
But I just can’t resist it

Empty ashtrays and a bottle of water
Very clearly a sign of disorder

Always thoughtful, honest, and selfless
Very clearly they had a death-wish

Caring is masochistic
My conscience is masochistic
Perfection is masochistic
But I just can’t resist it

Oh, what a waste
Oh, what a waste it was
Track Name: Civil Lanterns
I prefer the dark streets

When I can’t have the sunlight

There are no civil lanterns

When things are artificially bright


I run for my life

I run for my life


A shining intercom

Saying we will overcome

I’ll be your civil lantern

And people get that look in their eyes


When the night falls

But the sky’s lit up

By all those civil lanterns

And people start to get energized

I run for my life

I run for my life

I run for my life
Track Name: Sadness Is the Rich Man's Drug
Can you please repeat that again?
I was lost in the room tone
No I don’t want to hear
About how you think you might have finally won an argument

It’s not academic
It’s different for us
No cutting agents
It’s pure as it comes
Do you get it love?
Sadness is the rich man’s drug

The shock of seeing your new friends
Having a laugh only a half hour
After you all had a cry
And swore that you were never going to smile again

It’s not recreation
It’s different for us
No cutting agents
It’s pure as it comes
Do you get it love?
Sadness is the rich man’s drug

Do you get it love?
Sadness is the rich man’s drug

Do you get it now?
You blew the rent
They were having a laugh
It’s different for us
Do you get it love?
Track Name: I Am The Last Ghetto
I had all the answers
But no way to prove I was right
And you can’t imagine what that does to a mind like mine
You can’t imagine what that does to a mind like mine

I was cut by the edges of those glassy eyes and survived
I rode an arctic wave of teenage suicide
You can’t imagine what that does to a mind like mine

There are no more dangerous streets
Or wrong sides of town
I am the last ghetto
I’ll be your dumping ground

I saw thoughts get raped and fall in love with their attackers tonight
I heard the graffiti apologize
You can’t imagine what that does to a mind like mine

Displaced, I said goodbye
As I watched sadness and rage become gentrified
You can’t imagine what that did to my mind

There are no more dangerous streets
Or wrong sides of town
I am the last ghetto
I’ll be your dumping ground
Track Name: The Man Who Refused Be Born
You were waiting for the right time
'Cause life can’t pass you by
And here I am having another worst year of my life
I was impulsive
Wasn’t I?

Baby why are we always fighting over pennies?
When they say
The real money is in war
No, don’t go making enemies
With a man who refuses to be born

You waited for the right sign
For stars to align
But you can put me in any place or time
And I would still want to die

Baby why are we always fighting over pennies?
When they say
The real money is in war
No, don’t go making enemies
With a man who refuses to be born
No, don’t go with a man who refuses
The man who refused to be born
And the girl who wants to die
Perfect for each other
Track Name: I Want It All, So I Can Have Nothing
I would love to feel wise and be in control
Obviously the highs were best part of being low
Obviously the highs were best part

I always knew nothing is what I want
But the less you have the more you start to see the dust
Collecting where you just cleaned up

When shelves are empty
I get filled with envy
Because they took my nothing away from me
They took my nothing away from me
To have a little you need a lot
And I want I want I want

I want it all so I can have nothing
I want it all so I can have nothing

I gave everything away
I saved nothing at all
But there is always something I’ll need saving from
Waiting where I just cleaned up

I stare and admire these bare walls
They were my Monets and my Degas
As long as I could pay up

When minds are empty I get filled with greed
As I imagine the luxury
I don’t want what they’ve given me
But to have a little you need a lot
And I won’t
I won’t stop
'TIl I have it all so I can have nothing
I want it all so I can have nothing

And the key to having nothing
Is to always have too much
Track Name: Hell Can Do Right
I’ve taken your body
I’ve taken your body to places so imaginary
The images would be wasted on your mind
I wish I believed
I wish I believed
Eternity is what I need
It hurts to know that your pain is finite

There are some things only hell can do right
I’ll do something

I wish I believed
I wish I believed
I’d smile at everyone I see
And dream up contrapasso as they pass by
They’ll all die
They’ll all die
Someday they’ll all die

There are some things only hell can do right
I’ll do something

I just need some hope in this life
That pain is waiting on the other side
When your party is over
I want to be there when you die
And watch the fear rush into your eyes
'Cause you know this is just the beginning
Track Name: Clubs In Europe Forever
As long as there’s war
As long as there’s youth
As long as there’s fear
As long as there’s terror

They’ll be playing this in clubs in Europe forever

As long as there’s bad
As long as there’s good
As long as there’s right and wrong
As long as things aren’t that easy
As long as there are beliefs
As long as there are opinions
As long as everyone thinks
That theirs are better

They’ll be playing this in clubs in Europe forever
Track Name: I Don´t Like To Get Dirty
You can all go fuck yourselves
You can all go burn in hell
But if there’s anything you need at all I would help you out
I’ll be the one who cheers
When the end is near
But if someone had to save the day I guess I’d volunteer

'Cause my life doesn’t mean a thing to me
The only reason I haven’t put myself in the ground already
Is I don’t like to get dirty

You can all go fuck yourselves
You so-called tortured souls
But I’ll cover your ears so you won’t hear the screams and moans
If I could I’d just throw the earth into the sun
But I’d cover your eyes until my hand melted off

Life doesn’t mean a thing to be
The only reason I haven’t put myself in the ground already
Is I don’t like to get dirty

And I don’t want a funeral
'Cause I don’t like people looking at me
And I don’t want to get married
'Cause I don’t want someone touching me
I’m fine
I really want to die
Tonight I really want to die
But don’t worry
No don’t worry
I won’t hurt me
I won’t hurt
'Cause I don’t to get dirty
