Track Name: Bad News
they say that you're bad news
but for somebody like me
any news is good news
they say that you're bad news
but maybe bad is what i need
any news is good news

so i turn to my friends
but they all think that i'm depressed
that i don't make out enough
and i no it's all a joke
but i'm just not good at this stuff
i think i'll make it out okay
if i just make it out alive
all the cool things i do
when i'm with you
but all i can this is how

they say that you're bad news
but for somebody like me
any news is good news
they say that you're bad news
and maybe bad is what i need
any news is good news
Track Name: Backwards World
it's a backwards world we're in
and i don't know which way i'm facing
i've turned upside down again
assuming up is up
and down is the way i'm sitting

and i, i've been waiting up all night
oh wo oh
next to the telephone
oh wo oh
wondering if you're alright
and why you left me all alone

it's a backwards world we're in
and i don't know which way i'm facing
i've turned upside down again
assuming up is up
and down is the way i'm feeling
Track Name: Sidewalk
living my life as a sidewalk
people always walkin' on me
i've got cracks everywhere
i'm in need of repair
can someone get this gum out of my hair?

living my life as a nostril
people always pickin' on me
i've got hair everywhere
little kids always stare
if i've got boogies hanging out i don't care

living my life as a landline
people never callin' on me
i can't roam anywhere
stuck at home it's not fair
just listen to my dialtone

living my life as a sidewalk
people always walkin' on me
i've got cracks everywhere
i'm in need of repair
Track Name: Move Me
i miss the way you move
the way you move me
the way you ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh oooh
Track Name: Wasted
i'm wasting most of the time in my head
i'm spending all of that time alone
with no one to talk to
no one to run off to
lifeless bag of blood and bones

but how do you know when you've given it up
when you've given your all
and you can't just
try it again
say enough is enough
and call it an end

i'm wasting most of the time in my bed
i'm spending all of that time alone
just watching the start trek
and eating my paycheck
lifeless bag of blood and bones

but how do you know when you've given it up
when you've given your all
and you can't just
try it again
say enough is enough
and call it an end

i'm spending most of the time by myself
i'm wasting most of the time by myself
i'm killing most of my time by myself
Track Name: Art Is Hard
art is hard
man
art is hard
man art
man art

oh man art
is so hard
oh man art
is so hard
Track Name: Getting Tired
i'm getting tired
oh a house that's not a home
i'm getting tired
oh leaving well enough alone

i'm getting tired
of starting my days
trying to leave before you wake
and maybe not come back
or just come back late
go straight to bed and start again
i'm cowered on my floor
watching the shadows creep
across the light under my bedroom door
can't hide anymore

i'm getting tired
of a house that's not a home
i'm getting tired
of leaving well enough alone

i'm getting tired
of holding my breath
trying to answer you without making a sound
my head in the ground
Track Name: Likeable
i guess i'm likeable in a sad way
oh oh oohhh
but i like them all
in the baddest way possible
i'm holding out for love
but who am i kidding
what do i think i'm made out
just blood and hair no guts

i guess i like them all in a bad way
but i'd like to know why it's sad
for me to stay home
i'm trying not to care
but i just don't feel like i fit in anyway
Track Name: Party Till I Bleed
a party is what i want
and a party is what i need
i'm gonna party till i'm dumb
i'm gonna party till i bleed

i cannot wait for the weekend
i want to party all the time
monday through friday i'm working
but then the weekend is all mine
i'm gonna barf till i vom
i'm gonna vom till i spew
i'm gonna spew till i hurl
then i'm coming after you
Track Name: Killing Me Slowly
i just wanna be around
people not drinking
i just wanna be a part
of a different kind of thinking
but oh, this little thought
is swimming 'round in my head
what's killing you slowly
is still just killing you dead

and all of the exercise
that i'm not getting
and all the taco bell
that i'm regretting
oh this reality
is quickly setting in

i just wanna be around
people not smoking
my lungs they can't take it
they're already pretty broken
but oh this little thought
is floating 'round in my head
what's killing you slowly
is still just killing you dead
Track Name: How Can I Be Sad At A Face Like That
i kind of like the way
that you call me
when i'm already on the phone
and i always think it's strange
how you stop by my house
when i'm never home
but i never liked the way
that you're never around
when i'm all alone

but if you smile at me
i will smile back
how can i be sad
at a face like
how can i be sad
at a face like
how can i be sad
at a face like that?

i kind of like the way
that you are on my mind
when i fall asleep
and you might think it's strange
how i count on you
instead of counting sheep
but i never liked the way
you leave my dreams
when i've fallen deep
Track Name: Unlikely
it's unlikely
i'll be happy
it's unlikely
i'll feel anything at all
and i'm tired
of pretending
that i'm doing alright
when i just feel like

everyone around me
says i'm not thinking clearly
but i'm not thinking anything at all

it's unlikely
i'll be happy
it's unlikely
i'll be anything at all
and i'm trying
but i'm stuck
it all seems the same
but i just feel like

everyone around me
says i'm not thinking clearly
but i'm not thinking anything at all
