Abnormal 02:49
For all that I love you, that's how much I hate you And it hits me like a flick of the switch You're my perfect angel, but sometimes All I see is a fuckin' bitch The problem's not you, I know, it's true There's just somethin' goin' on in my head Everything has changed, everything's so strange And now you're stuck with ab-normal again For all that I love you, that's how much I hate you And the button gets pushed all the time For all the fun I have inside you I could leave it at the toss of a dime The problem's me, that much I see There's something wrong inside my head Everything has changed, everything's so strange And now you're stuck with ab-normal again For all that I love you, that's how much I hate you And it crushes me like a ton of bricks Just when I think I'm gonna reach out for your neck Instead my hands go right to your tits I've always known I'm crazy I'm just tired of tryin' to pretend Everything has changed, everything's so strange And now you're stuck with ab-normal again It's like runnin' face-first into a wall Till I black out down on the floor The next time ya see me chargin' towards ya Just push me right out the door The intensity's too much sometimes Fame is a fuckin' cage, I'm infected with this rage And now you're stuck with ab-normal again And now you're stuck with ab-normal again And now you're stuck with ab-normal again And now we fuck like ab-normal again

I'm so glad to be here I could slit my fucking wrist This chaos is just what I need to keep me nice and pissed My chest fills up with acid till the veins pop in my head I wake up every morning wishing God would strike me dead But... When the whole world looks at me they see some other guy Doesn't matter what I say, they all made up their minds I didn't like it then, and I still don't like it now But I find the strength to smile somehow And say... I'm so glad to be here I could jump off every bridge But everybody's got a rope around one of my limbs Tryin' to get their piece they keep on tearing me apart They wanna get inside me so they can kick around my heart 'Coz... When the whole world looks at me they see some other guy Doesn't matter what I say, they all made up their minds I didn't like it then, and I still don't like it now But I find the strength to smile somehow And say... I'm so glad to be here I'm really glad to be here I'm so glad to be here I'm really glad to be here I'm so glad I could just hang myself from the highest tree I'm longing for the crush of rushing trains over me I haven't had a good night sleep since 1995 I'm too tired to ask why I keep myself alive But... When the whole world looks at me they see some other guy Doesn't matter what I say, they all made up their minds I didn't like it then, and I still don't like it now But I find the strength to smile somehow And say... I'm so glad to be here I'm really glad to be here I'm so glad to be here I'm really glad to be here

Objectify 03:48
You point your finger at me I'm a mirror to you And you don't like what you see And they think I'm insane 'Cause I got my own brain Ya know, I really don't care They, they don't wanna know me Makes it harder to judge Makes it harder to stink And it's always the same And I'm always to blame And they gather outside With their torches held high Now the freak must die But the freak is not I. This is our last chance to break free One last chance before they break me This is our last chance to break free One last chance before they break me down Beware - beware of the Have-Nots You're just an image to them Of what they want but don't got They'll call you every bad name Breaking you is a game 'Til you're one and the same (It's a fucking shame.) And you - you objectify A body for you to burn But that body aint mine And it's always the same And I'm always to blame And they gather outside With their torches held high Now the freak must die But the freak is not I. This is our last chance to break free One last chance before they break me This is our last chance to break free One last chance before they break me down

How do I hate your face - well let me count the ways Well there aint none at all - cause you aint nuthin to me My brain don't work so good - remind me when did I care I don't see how I would - there just aint nuthin' there You're with some other guy And man does he look funny I try to say hello But he always takes off runnin' Well he don't bother me We're done and it don't matter So why's he so afraid Every time he sees me comin' It must be something ya said To try and fuck with his head You must have told him I'm still into you Another reason why - ya got such an apetite For all that bad attention - for that I got no patience I think that you and I are two words that don't belong Two lines that never cross - and that's alright because... You're with some other guy And man does he look funny I try to say hello But he always takes off runnin' Well he don't bother me We're done and it don't matter So why's he so afraid Every time he sees me comin' It must be something ya said To try and fuck with his head You must have told him I'm still into you

Jenny B 02:01
Jenny B - you got all of my heart, can't ya see Jenny B - you got all of my heart, can't ya see You're the only one Who gets that part of me Jenny B - I'll be seein' ya 1 before 9 Jenny B - I'll be seein' ya 1 before 9 You're the only one Who can get me to come right on time Jenny B - I'll be seein' ya 1 before 9 Jenny B - I'll be seein' ya 1 before 9 You're my only one On the hour you'll have me inside

Last Time 03:41
How does she break me down Why am I still around? Piece by piece till I fall When did I lose my balls I'm not gonna think about it - this will be the last time Sobsodded and broken-hearted, well this will be the last time So stop tryin' to get me started, cause this will be the last time This will be the last time, This will be the last time That I will think about... All the ways ya pushed me down Held my face to the ground Eating dirt once again Somethin' when you smile ya do me in I'm not gonna think about it - this will be the last time Sobsodded and broken-hearted, well this will be the last time So stop tryin' to get me started, cause this will be the last time This will be the last time, This will be the last time That I will think about you I try so hard But the good's just a little too good You push me too far But the good's just a little too good This is where we are Cause the good's just a little too good How does she break me down Why am I still around? Piece by piece till I fall When did I lose my balls I'm not gonna think about it - this will be the last time Sobsodded and broken-hearted, well this will be the last time So stop tryin' to get me started, cause this will be the last time This will be the last time, This will be the last time That I will think about you

Simple Days 04:12
You and I Since you've gone all the flowers have died You and I We've been drifting apart for some time How could I survive In this world full of cocaine and lies? 'Cause every day away feels like I've gone a thousand miles and have to go a thousand more It's like a slow death in my soul I feel while falling into space now darker than before What ever happened to those simple days? You and I From a distance we're just shapes and lines You and I Pictures filling with holes in our minds What can I do? Change the tides so they bring me to you? And every day away feels like I've gone a thousand miles and have to go a thousand more It's like a slow death in my soul I feel while falling into space now darker than before What ever happened to those simple days? You and I Disconnected and falling apart Crucified By the hand that keeps squeezing my heart How could I survive In this world full of cocaine and lies And every day away feels like I've gone a thousand miles and have to go a thousand more It's like a slow death in my soul I feel while falling into space now darker than before A thousand miles, a thousand miles, I go a thousand more What ever happened to those simple days? I sure miss those good ol' simple days I sure miss the world before it changed

Conspiracy 01:20
I'm so bored with everything (I need a new conspiracy) Fools are ready to believe (I need a new conspiracy) I'm a useless parasite My dick in hand every night I gotta question everything (I need a new conspiracy) And make some deeper meaning (I need a new conspiracy) 'Cos without you I'm so empty Why do I bother breathing? All you do, you do for me (I need a new conspiracy) You keep my cold heart beating (I need a new conspiracy) I'm cowering behind a screen Anonymous - I'm nobody If only daddy kicked my ass (I need a new conspiracy) I might become a man at last (I need a new conspiracy) I resent what I can't be I've got it so bad, woe is me In my own room, on my high-speed (I need a new conspiracy) I'm young I'm healthy and I'm free (I need a new conspiracy) I've got it too good, don't ya see? But that aint good enough for me I need a new conspiracy (I need a new conspiracy) I need a new conspiracy (I need a new conspiracy) I need a new conspiracy (I need a new conspiracy) I need a new conspiracy (I need a new conspiracy)

Piranha 03:20
I'm on a sinking ship surrounded by piranha I can sink or swim but either way I'm a goner Piranhas in the ocean and the sky and in my bed Piranhas keep on biting till they get inside my head And everyone wants to take a little bite Till they're suckin' on my bones, they're scrapin' at my life I can sink or swim but either way I'm a goner I'm on a sinking ship and surrounded by piranha And we drop down, just a little more down I see them all around - just a-waitin' and a-watchin' I see it in their eyes as the floor keeps droppin' I aint gonna win but I won't go without a fight Alone on a ship in a race against time And it's runnin' out

Green 04:07
I fell in love with a cold-hearted woman She shivers in silence Her heart beating snow And everything I know she taught me 'Bout Winter with trembling words I wrote a song and gave it to her She left frozen footprints And made it her own Her lies were full of rhyme and the music In my heart turned suddenly black Blame it on love and pain, and all in between On colored emotions, each deeper than green It's all in my mind in a world only I see Where I am the king, and everything I touch turns green. We live in a world deep inside an icebox Miles from the floodgates Where nothing can grow I tried to step from darkness And all that I stand on was starting to crack Blame it on love and pain, and all in between On colored emotions, each deeper than green It's all in my mind in a world only I see Where I am the king, and everything I touch turns green. It's all in my mind in a world only I see Have I gone so blind to have dark without dreams? I try to be kind but hatred becomes me And I become sorrow and jade becomes grief We're frozen inside while the world keeps on melting We only survive 'cause death comes in 3 We're stopped on the edge just a sharp word from falling Now I am the king, and everything I touch turns green.

Misery 02:30
Misery She's trying to break free Caught her flying in and out of dreams Misery The sky turns tangerine Take my hand and give your heart to me Bring you to a silver sea Let me kiss you sweet grenadine You will know just how much you mean to me Misery I want you tenderly Let me show you that you can believe me Every whisper a melody Every promise a symphony Forever you'll be in every word I sing Misery Won't you marry me I will spend a lifetime, I will search the whole world, darlin', To find the words that say just how much I love you

Redeye 03:35
Well it started with a sound I never heard before Then the pushin' and the pullin' me across the floor I said the last thing we did the night before we die Was a little drunk girl with a big red eye It was another late night in Tokyo In another dark club after another show If the morning light could have got inside We would have seen the girl had a big red eye So we crashed out a little bit before the quake Then I held you tight while the hotel shaked If the walls came down we would have surely died Never knowin' the girl had a big red eye But we lived to see ourselves another day And we laughed out loud with a foot in the grave Ya see, the camera had a flash and the pictures don't lie That little drunk girl had a big red eye And the toxic waste spilled into the sea And the air stuck like flypaper to me It's all one big roller-coaster ride And last night she got on with a big red eye The greatest lessons we could learn in life Are always served the day after we die All I would have missed as I hit the sky Was that the little drunk girl had a big red eye

Dash 05:23
And everything will come to pass. And it all happened in the dash I saw the numbers on each side But all that mattered was the line When you left so many came To see the stone they had engraved It all happened way too fast It all happened in the dash And everything will come and go And we will never really know Just how much falls in-between Or we'd say everything will be. But we can't sum up every page With just one cover and one name It all happened way too fast And all we had becomes a dash And if I had one more chance for us to start things over Ya know I wouldn't change a thing And if I had one more chance for us to be together If I could do it all again I wouldn't change a thing And everything will come to be Another distant memory Something alone to make you laugh One for your own epitaph And in the end what will they say About your spirit and your name It all happened way too fast And all we are becomes a dash And if I had one more chance for us to start things over Ya know I wouldn't change a thing And if I had one more chance for us to be together If I could do it all again I wouldn't change a thing Life is what happens in-between the dreams you're trying to remember Life is what happens in-between going for your longest breath underwater Life is what happens in-between the red lights and stop signs Life is what happens in-between losing your patience on the express line Life is what happens in-between letting the phone ring and staring at the number Life is what happens in-between finding out what no one wants to tell ya. Life is what happens in-between staying for the end of your favorite song Life is what happens in-between wanting to say it, but waiting too long Life is what happens in-between each fight on the message board Life is what happens in-between each time I leave for another tour Life is what happens in-between the holding out for a better spot Life is what happens when you take a chance and lose what ya got Life is what happens in-between the traffic stopped to look at the crash Life is what happens in-between forgetting to hit save and starting from scratch Life is what happens between agreeing that the year went by so fast Life is what happens and all we have becomes a dash

For all that I love you, that's how much I hate you And it hits me like a flick of the switch You're my perfect angel, but sometimes All I see is a f***in' b**** The problem's not you, I know, it's true There's just somethin' goin' on in my head Everything has changed, everything's so strange And now you're stuck with ab-normal again For all that I love you, that's how much I hate you And the button gets pushed all the time For all the fun I have inside you I could leave it at the toss of a dime The problem's me, that much I see There's something wrong inside my head Everything has changed, everything's so strange And now you're stuck with ab-normal again For all that I love you, that's how much I hate you And it crushes me like a ton of bricks Just when I think I'm gonna reach out for your neck Instead my hands go right to your t*** I've always known I'm crazy I'm just tired of tryin' to pretend Everything has changed, everything's so strange And now you're stuck with ab-normal again It's like runnin' face-first into a wall Till I black out down on the floor The next time ya see me chargin' towards ya Just push me right out the door The intensity's too much sometimes Fame is a f***in' cage I'm infected with this rage And now you're stuck with ab-normal again And now you're stuck with ab-normal again And now you're stuck with ab-normal again And now we f*** like ab-normal again
