Track Name: Another Drinking Song
I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking I’ve been drinking. I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking I should stop. I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking I’ve been drinking. I know what you’re thinking. I think you can shut up. Well here we go another drinking song. Filled with catchy words to sing along. Short and sweet so we don’t fuck it up. As we race to the bottom of our cups. Drink a pitcher then watch the show. No time to think 'cause here we go. Forget the words they make no sense. All we need is liquid confidence. I’m not a role model. I’m just pancake batter. And I like to play the guitar like it was a jackhammer. And after the chorus there’s a second verse. Just a bit louder and a whole lot worse. If Henry VIII could see me now I know that this song would make him proud. Round and round we always go. Where we’ll stop well no one knows. Drop to D and play the chords. No one gives a shit about the words.
Track Name: MOAR! (Ahuhahuhah)
Drink a forty in the morning just to get out of bed. By two I will be hanging from the chandelier. Your body’s got me horny with that silhouette. I can’t get you outta my head. No I can’t take anymore. I can’t take anymore. Well the devil made that body just to destroy man and goddammit woman I’ll take part in his plan. When you say you know me like the back of your hand. I can’t get you out of my head. Well no I can’t take anymore. I can’t take anymore. Flashy cars and fancy clothes. This is how she says she rolls. Don’t tell me to take it slow. I will reap what I sow. Well the sky is falling fast but the night is young. We’ll drive into tomorrow 'til the day is done. I’m blinded by the highway in this setting sun. I can’t get you out of my head. Well no I can’t take anymore. I can’t take anymore. I wake to the desert sun's bleeding my mind. I’m tied to the tracks of the railroad line. She walks away slowly with that silhouette. I can’t get you outta my head. Burning holes in my mind and I’m filled with regret. Let the whiskey take me over so I can forget. She smiles at me behind her cigarette. I can’t get you outta my head. Well no I can’t take anymore. I can’t take anymore. More. More. I can’t take anymore. More. More.
Track Name: 16 Bucks (Whoooooooooo!)
Don’t call me 'cause I don’t need you. Don’t call me honey 'cause you've done me wrong. You may not know what you did but you sure as hell know what you said. And if I have to spell it out for you one more goddamn time I just think I might just pound my fist on the damn bar. Demand one more round before I go 'cause my legs are weak and my eyes are shot and 16 bucks is all I got. You ain’t calling me. But honey I know I did you wrong. Just baby come home. I don’t know what to say but I’m gonna say it anyway. I lost my mind somewhere in time and if you don’t take me back I just think I might.
Track Name: Bring Me Chocolate (Lots & Lots of Chocolate)
It’s not how it looks at least that’s what you told me. 18 weeks for a 2 week delivery? What good are you if that’s what I pay you for? Don’t let it hit your ass when I slam the door singing it’s alright. It’s alright. I don’t care if I’m not right. We gonna stay up late tonight. Order in and watch the fight. Well here we are and there we’ve been. It’s been so long with you my dear. But will you go or will you stay? If you have cold feet don’t run away.
Track Name: Not Really A Love Song
Well you can go right ahead and wish upon a star. And maybe if you’re lucky it’ll show you where you are. Me I'm a million miles away on some cosmic plane in space. But no amount of wishing will wipe the tears from off your face. So go ahead and say it and get it off your chest. There’s a line on out the door. They’re all waiting to say the rest. They’ve all waited for this day. They’ve all waited for their turn. Well I’m busy with someone else right now and it’s none of your concern. 'Cause you can go to hell. I wish I could say that I wish you well. If it was all a test? Your lies weren't better than any of the rest. So I think I’ll take a nap and sleep away the day. I’m better off not knowing all the things you did today. I’d rather watch the world burn than go outside and play. 'Cause the thought of you just sickens me. So why don’t you just go away. Someone else out there could be yours tonight. Don’t you look in my direction you ain’t winning any fights. For you I’ve said it all before but I’ll say it all again. Your words they don’t mean shit to me. Keep on standing in the rain. 'Cause you can go to hell. I wish I could say that I’d wish you well. But if it were all in jest, your lies were better than any of the rest.
Track Name: The Man From The South Of Mexico
So sit right back and let me tell you a tale about a great big man from the south of Mexico. Well he looks real tough and he looks real mean. He's six foot ten or so the story goes. Well there isn't a man neither alive or dead that'd dare to try to pick a fight with him. And if you even tried to look him in the eye he'd just stare right back at you with that shit eating grin. Well he’d turn to you and he’d say. I’m the man from the south of Mexico. I’m the man that broke the walls of Jericho. I’m the man that's ready to go. Give me more more more more more more more more more. Nearly every single night at about half past ten he walks right up and orders himself a gin. Well he doesn't say much and he drinks a lot. He just sits there deep in thought. And at about this time a few nights ago I spoke to the man from the south of Mexico. Well I sat at the bar and I bought him a gin and I said 'hey man what's the story behind that grin?' Well he turned to me and he said. About three thousand years ago I met a old man in a little row boat. He was from past to moon and beyond the stars. Smelled of cheap cologne and cheap cigars. He said ‘How'd you like to live forever? Be big, and mean, and strong, and clever? All you gotta do is sign your name on the line.’ Now I'm stuck drinking gin 'til the end of time. And that's the story behind the man who lives way down in the south of Mexico. Now he travels the land far and wide looking for that man in the little row boat. Well don't you dare get in his way 'cause trying to kill him will only make his day. Ain't nothing gonna break the spell he's in so every night he steps in the bar and drinks gin. And all he'll ever say is...
Track Name: Bouncy, Bouncy, Bouncy, Stop.
Now I’m stuck at 20 something fending for my life. When I dropped the ball the crowd screamed yeah yeah yeah yeah! Who are you and who am I? Are we the only ones to decide the fate of the universe? Let’s go. Walk out the door. I don’t need your shit storm. I don’t need it anymore. I’ve got my keys. I’ve got plenty of cash. I’ve got my nitroglycerin so you can kiss my ass. Let’s go. Walk out the door. I don’t need your stupid reasons anymore. I’ve got my life. You’ve got yours. You think that you’re the shit well you’re just a bore.
Track Name: Internet P.S.A.
I sit back and light my cigarette. As I stare into her room through the internet. Honesty here would make her sweat. Cause this’ll be a night she won't forget. Pinch her she's dreaming. The message screen is blinking. Emoticons are winking. And you will know my face on the TV screen. I’m just a little boy in the punk rock scene. If she knew who I was it'd make her scream. Think I’d take her home and make her my queen. And it's so appealing with stars on my ceiling. There's just one tiny thing. Well don't give a fuck. I don't give a fuck. I locked your daughter up in the back of my truck. Gonna take her for a ride and it'll blow her mind. She’ll never be the same once I'm inside tonight. I sit back and contemplate. Since you left it to chance. You left it to fate. We don't all work for the government or are superheroes from the internet. 'Cause you are responsible when anything is possible. These creeps are unstoppable. Well now I’m really fucked. Now I’m really fucked. I’m getting butt-fucked in the D cell block. His name is Rick Chuck and he’s built like a truck. I’ll never be the same once he’s inside tonight.
Track Name: Semete, Ningen Rashiku
Well I don’t know exactly what it was that hit me. When I stepped in the bar I knew that something was wrong. She batted her eyes and then ordered a whiskey. Sat next to me and adjusted her thong. Well she told me her name but I didn’t quite catch it. The music was so loud and they were playing my song. We ordered another round and she started to get into me. She said, 'I’m not crazy' and I just played along. I said some of these guys might be smarter than me. Some of these guys might be cooler than me too. But a girl like you are few and far between. She said, 'yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.' So after nine shots I was ready to call it a night but there was something in her smile that told me I was wrong. She said, 'I know this place that’s open real late and if you pitch into the cab I’ll let you tag along.' Well I didn’t recognize this part of the city but she was so happy that I came along. We ordered another round and she started to get into me. She said, 'I’m not crazy' and I just played along. Well she said, 'let’s forge French passports. Move to Lyon and get a job working in a strip club. A different one each night. Oh baby the fun will never stop.' I said some of these guys might be hipper than me. Some of these guys might be stronger than me too. But a girl like you are few and far between. She said, 'yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.’
Track Name: Mishiranu, Tenjō
Let’s hit the road, forget our lives. No time to waste. Gonna spend my time on cheap hotels and beer and wine. Eat every meal at a five and dime. Who the hell are you to give me lies? Don’t sell me on your cheap advice. Got my life to live. Gonna live my life. On this open road is where I drive. Gonna drive away into the night. Gonna get real drunk. Gonna start big fights. You think you’re tough? You think you’re right? But that don’t mean that you’ll survive. I've hit the road I’ve got your cash. Gonna cheat my death. Gonna have a blast. I’ve got away. I’m on the run. I’ve got my bourbon. I’ve got my gun.
