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

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

Take Your Seatbelt Off (free) 02:58
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

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

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

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?

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

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

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
10.
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
11.
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
12.
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
