Track Name: Bring On All That Can Go Wrong
BRING ON ALL THAT CAN GO WRONG

This is your life
You only get one chance
Don't give in, don't give up
Don't blame circumstance

Bring on all that can go wrong!
Bring on all that can go wrong!

It's a daily adventure
How much can you take?
Don't give in, don't give up
You'll never break

Bring on all that can go wrong!
Bring on all that can go wrong!

Gonna pass the test - you've got something to prove
Are you living life - or is it living you?
Just remember - at the end of the day
It’s up to you - to blow them away!

Never give up!
Never ever give up!

This is your life
You only get one chance
Don't give in, don't give up
Don't blame circumstance

Bring on all that can go wrong!
Bring on all that can go wrong!
Bring on all that can go wrong! (Never give up!)
Bring on all that can go wrong! (Never ever give up!)
Track Name: St. Vitus Dance
ST. VITUS DANCE

Finally feeling good for the first time in years
It must be you, you're happiness dear
I've forgotten all the things that bring me down for now...

Still looking for that 9 to 5 faith
When I thought my whole life never would change
And everything I'd ever want or need
Could be sung over a rock'n'roll beat

With some things you've said you've broke my heart
But that's okay, sometimes worlds fall apart
Who am I to say it should stop and wait
'Till I can handle it better

Still looking for that 9 to 5 faith
When I thought my whole life never would change
And everything I'd ever want or need
Could be sung over a rock'n'roll beat

Everybody loves you
If you keep it a little dumb
If 2 and 2 add up to 5
They'll shower you with love
She said if things were different
Then I might've had a chance
To have and kiss and hold her
Beneath St. Vitus Dance

Still looking for that 9 to 5 faith
When I thought my whole life never would change
And everything I'd ever want or need
Could be sung over a rock'n'roll beat

Everybody loves you
If you keep it a little dumb
If 2 and 2 add up to 5
They'll shower you with love
She said if things were different
Then I might've had a chance
To have and kiss and hold her
Beneath St. Vitus Dance
Track Name: Getting Too Old
GETTING TOO OLD

Getting too old for this
Getting too old for this
Just boys making noise and at this point it seems silly
To think we're relevant to the youth in this city

So I bought a guitar and I took it so far
I did what I could just like a good boy should
I thought I had a plan, the answer was a band
Except nobody really cared

Getting too old for this
Getting too old for this
Just boys making noise and at this point it seems silly
To think we're relevant to the youth in this city

People in this town they are bringing me down
And I gotta get out and I gotta get around
Now everybody's moving, but nobody's doing
The work that needs to get done

Getting too old for this
Getting too old for this
Just boys making noise and at this point it seems silly
To think we're relevant to the youth in this city

Getting so over this!
Getting so over this!
Getting so over this!
Getting so over this!

The bottom of the barrel isn't where I want to be
But it just sorta happened 'cause it came so easily
I gotta get up, so I don't get down
And I gotta get over myself

Getting too old for this
Getting too old for this
Just boys making noise and at this point it seems silly
To think we're relevant to the youth in this city

Getting so over this!
Getting so over this!
Getting so over this!
Getting so over this!

Getting too old for this...
Track Name: Manscaping
MANSCAPING

I got the fur, I got the burn
I got a razor and a scissor and I'm willing to learn
How to control, this chest afro
And I ain't gonna quit for as long as it grows

A little off the top, I can't stop...

Manscaping - Living the life
Manscaping - I did it for my wife
Manscaping - It doesn't make me gay
And if it did, well - you know that that's okay!

When I go out, the kids they shout
And they act like a bear from the zoo has gotten out
They find it scary, that I'm so hairy
But if they wanna get freaked I'll introduce’em to Larry

Some men are show-ers, I'm a grower...

Manscaping - Living the life
Manscaping - I did it for my wife
Manscaping - It doesn't make me gay
And if it did, well - you know that that's okay!

I got the fur, I got the burn
I got a razor and a scissor and I'm willing to learn
How to control, this chest afro
And I ain't gonna quit for as long as it grows

Manscaping - Living the life
Manscaping - I did it for my wife
Manscaping - It doesn't make me gay
And if it did, well - you know that that's okay!

Manscaping - Living the life
Manscaping - I did it for my wife
Manscaping - It doesn't make me gay
And if it did, well - you know that that's okay!
Track Name: Fremdenführer
FREMDENFÜHRER

She comes out at night and shows me herself
She shows me more than anyone else
And part of her is so unrequited
Part of her is so undecided
By a world that ate her up...
La di di - da di da dum

Where did you go and what did you say?
Along the way I made a mistake
Like a tear on the autobahn, a ghost in the night
I know what I've done and I know what is right

I'd love to try and lock her up
Lord knows I've tried to knock her up
And I'd like to keep her somewhere she'll always be safe
Put her somewhere where she won't misbehave
'Cause I know that the world is cold, cruel and tough...
La di di - da di da dum

Where did you go and what did you say?
Along the way I made a mistake
Like a tear on the autobahn, a ghost in the night
I know what I've done and I know what is right

Things aren't as bad as they seem
Things aren't as bad I like to believe
Things aren't as bad as they say
Loneliness when she goes away

She tells me secrets, promises and tries
To give me hope through her lies
There's much of me that likes to feel needed
Is to her that likes to feel cheated
By a world that ate her up...
La di di - da di da dum

Where did you go and what did you say?
Along the way I made a mistake
Like a tear on the autobahn, a ghost in the night
I know what I've done and I know what is right
Where did you go and what did you see?
I never believed it could happen to me
Like a tear on the autobahn a ghost in the night
I know what I've done and I know what is right
Track Name: Soon Enough
SOON ENOUGH

Lucky stars - appearing in my hometown
Where the girls are always willing
Boys act out just to make sound
But the girls they love to chase the feelin'
Morning comes - as simple as it seems
These days I don't feel like me
Resignation stopped taking my calls
And I'm holding my breath waiting for the showdown

Crimson tide a flood of innocence
A mess amongst exquisiteness
I jumped the shark I know
But still I just can't let it go (and)
Fast break - my minds on trial
Slow down - my hearts on file
Something as simple as you think
Has a way of making you sink

Soon enough you'll come back into my arms
And I will take you back 'cause you broke my heart
Soon enough you'll crawl back to me
'Cause I can tell that you never ever wanted to leave

Lucky stars - burn down and break my heart
They had a chance to take me down easy
And I felt the world separate
And I saw the people congregating
Last stand - I'm looking towards the past (and)
Sometimes I want to pretend (that)
Breakaway from the myths and the man
The smallest victory within my hand (and)

The folly of God is ready and willing
These pills are making me dizzy
A cool breeze pushed me down to pulled me up
And I witnessed that magic touch (and)
A broken heart and a shattered past
Are two things which will not last (and)
I know someday you’ll come around
And when you do, you know I'll be found

Soon enough you'll come back into my arms
And I will take you back 'cause you broke my heart
Soon enough you'll crawl back to me
'Cause I can tell that you never ever wanted to leave

Morning comes as the dawn breaks loose
And I can tell that you never wanted to lose
Darkness comes as the sky fades to black
And I can tell you never turned your back
On what we were, what there was, just because...

Soon enough you'll come back into my arms
And I will take you back 'cause you broke my heart
Soon enough you'll crawl back to me
'Cause I can tell that you never ever wanted to leave

Soon enough you'll come back into my arms
And I will take you back 'cause you broke my heart
Soon enough you'll crawl back to me
'Cause I can tell that you never ever wanted to leave

Soon enough!
Track Name: All Your Friends
ALL YOUR FRIENDS

I never bet against you
It's just that the deck is stacked
And the jokes you call your friends
Are always gnawing at your back
And they make it sound so simple
How everything's extreme
They'll tell you where you're wanted
But they won't tell you what they mean

All your friends (all your friends)
Will let you down
And when you need'em most
They're never found

Don't look me in the eyes
And tell me you can't change
Don't act like you're the only one
Who's ever felt this way
Don't ask for my advice
'Cause you know what to do
You can't make the same mistakes
Expecting something new

All your friends (all your friends)
Will sell you out
And when you need'em most
They're never found

It's no secret - it's your life
And that I can't do much more than criticize
When you need some help we're here for you
But nothing will change your attitude

All your friends (all your friends)
Will let you down
And when you need'em most
They're never found
Track Name: Toy Store
TOY STORE

When I met her she was falling apart
I collected her pieces and sent for her heart
She was made out of glue and made in Taiwan
Assembled from plastics, but molded all wrong

I wanted her to stay and spend the night
The price tag said, "For forty bucks she's yours for life"
With a Velcro dress and those silicon lips
A go-go style, a candy-coated virgin

At the toy store's where I lost my heart
At the toy store's where it all came apart
With lips as sweet as candy, oh how I love her madly
At the toy store's where I lost my heart

Like all things she began to fade
And I would look at her less and less each day
That elegant hair and those perky breasts
Began to droop, I must confess

That brings me to the point of this song
Don't go looking for love in a catalog
And don't mail a check unless you can pay
'Cause a heartache is only a toy store away

At the toy store's where I lost my heart
At the toy store's where it all came apart
With lips as sweet as candy, oh how I love her madly
At the toy store's where I lost my heart
Track Name: Pincushion
PINCUSHION

Pincushion (pincushion) in my head
Pincushion (pincushion) in my head
Pincushion (pincushion) in my head
Pincushion (pincushion) in my head

I've been biting my tongue 'cause I wanna make it clear
That the proof is in the pudding and the judgment is severe
And you can run around in circles 'till you run out of breath
Hide behind excuses or get lost in excess
And you can talk talk talk 'till you're blue in the face
But if you can't walk the walk then get out of the way
'Cause there's always something better and there's always someone new
Hiding in the shadows and wanting to tear you in two

You can look me in the eye and feign to be sincere
But when push comes to shove intentions are quite clear
And you can fool yourself thinking that you're doing something right
Say what you want if it helps you sleep at night
And you can talk talk talk 'till you're blue in the face
But if you can't walk the walk then get out of the way
'Cause there's always something better and there's always someone new
Hiding in the shadows and wanting to tear you in two

Pincushion (pincushion) in my head
Pincushion (pincushion) in my head
Pincushion (pincushion) in my head
Pincushion (pincushion) in my head

Everybody thinks they've got something new to say
Everybody wants the glory, no one wants to pay
Everybody thinks they've got something new to say
Everybody wants the glory, but when push comes to shove they always go away!

I've been biting my tongue 'cause I wanna make it clear
That the proof is in the pudding and the judgment is severe
And you can run around in circles 'till you run out of breath
Hide behind excuses or get lost in excess
And you can talk talk talk 'till you’re blue in the face
But if you can't walk the walk then get out of the way
'Cause there's always something better and there's always someone new
Hiding in the shadows and wanting to tear you in two

Pincushion (pincushion) in my head
Pincushion (pincushion) in my head
Pincushion (pincushion) in my head
Pincushion (pincushion) in my head

Pincushion (pincushion) in my head
Pincushion (pincushion) in my head
Pincushion (pincushion) in my head
Pincushion (pincushion) in my head

Pincushion (pincushion) in my head
Track Name: Waiting
WAITING

I was waiting for a moment, but it never quite hit me
I was looking through the sights, but the glasses didn't fit me
I thought it was a matter of simple wrong or right
But truth be told there are no black or whites
I was waiting for a hand, but the glove didn't fit me
I thought I was chosen, but no one ever picked me
And I thought I was different from everyone else
But it turns out I was only kidding myself

It seems the sweetest things in life
Have a way of changing your mind
And the hopes you craved and the dreams you savored
Have a way of explaining your behavior
I was young I was on my own
Thought I was tough enough to face it alone
But as the days rolled back and the years flew by
Seems like I was only wasting my time

I was waiting for the magic, but they never quite tricked me
I thought only a fool could believe so easily
I knew they pulled a rabbit from a hat with two floors
I had to show'em all that I knew the score
I was dressed in my best looking humbled and content
I had an eager flare exuding confidence
But when the count came down to how it oughta be
I was left at the doorway searching for the key

It seems the sweetest things in life
Have a way of changing your mind
And the hopes you craved and the dreams you savored
Have a way of explaining your behavior
I was young I was on my own
Thought I was tough enough to face it alone
But as the days rolled back and the years flew by
Seems like I was only wasting my time

It seems the sweetest things in life
Have a way of changing your mind
And the hopes you craved and the dreams you savored
Have a way of explaining your behavior
I was young I was on my own
Thought I was tough enough to face it alone
But as the days rolled back and the years flew by
Seems like I was only wasting my time


DISCONNECT

"I'm a good girl," she says as I pass her by
But I'm certain that this is a lie
Because good girls don't ever need to try
To sound innocuous

And I question what's running through her head
Is she lonely, hurting or depressed?
Is she tired trying to impress
Thee fictitious void

And I wonder if it's all in my mind
Or maybe it's been this way through all time
I don't when the disconnect set in
But I hope that we can connect again

Scanning through the FM stations
Caught in the same static conversations
With the diligence of the foreign nations
Rattling around my head

Day in, day out, it's the same old drone
The more I hear the more I feel alone
Without a heart to call my home
Yet still I wonder why

And I wonder if it's all in my mind
Or maybe it's been this way through all time
I don't when the disconnect set in
But I hope that we can connect again

The clerk he asks me if he can help
Yet I don't need a thing like everyone else
'Cause there's too much emptiness within my house
To fill fictitious voids

And I wonder if it's all in my mind
Or maybe it's been this way through all time
I don't when the disconnect set in
But I hope that we can connect again

And I wonder if it's all in my mind
Or maybe it's been this way through all time
I don't when the disconnect set in
But I hope that we can connect again...
