Stand up sit down baby
Gonna be a formal dress down hey day
We decide why not go downtown
How about you and me we go get wasted
You'll have, you'll have to excuse me
Please please, please excuse me
You'll have, you'll have to excuse me
This will be my first time
By definition from grade school to English 30
We quietly become strong so early
Take it or leave it
They can't believe it
They go from kindergarten to killing sprees
They go from heartache to inner peace
100 foot ceilings 100 percent deceit
He said let's leave this between you and me
My cats watch my stuff leave my house
Between you and me the cat burglars are
What did you see what did you steal
Tell me baby how does it feel
Yeah how do you feel
It's a top ten list of
Things that move me the most
It's a top ten list of
Things that bother me the most
A top ten list of
Things that scare me the most
I'd have to say that the future
Wasting time in the fast food line
I decide to walk the fine line
And celebrate life celebrate death
I choose to celebrate the first
I celebrate the first
We decide to go out walking
The whole time that we're talking
Convinced that we're living
The whole time that we're dying
We decide to go out walking
The whole time that you're talking
Convinced that you're living
Whole time that I'm dying
Keeps me on my toes
Where did the time go
You keep me on my toes
Where did the time go
On the edge of town where the gravel's thin
They're gonna wear you down
Until you're thin and tired tired tired
Of wasting time in the fast food line
I decide to walk the fine line
And celebrate life celebrate death
I choose to celebrate
The first to come the first to go
The first to say yes the first to say no
I'm gonna seize this moment
The first to come the first to go
The first to say yes the first to say no
We decide to go out walking
The whole time that we're talking
Convinced that we're living
Whole time that we're dying
Keeps me on my toes
Where did the time go, yeah
Keeps me on my toes
Where did the time go
You keep me on my toes
Where did the time go
You keep me on my toes
You keep me on my toes
You keep me on my toes

Freedom and blood
I make my mark and fight for tomorrow
Finally I've got something
Something I can raise my voice for
Fine tell them who you really want
Fine well you'll get yours and I'll get mine
Proud
I'm proud to be proud to see
They said proud
I'm proud to be proud to be me
They said tell me oh you've got to tell me
Freedom's rough
So we take our stand and fight for tomorrow
Finally we got something
Something we can bring down the house with
Fine tell them who you think you are
Fine tell them fine is what you are
And when you finally figure out what it is you need
You better think of me
No no no no
When I get up
I feel the rhythm in my fingers
I get up - I hear the rhythm in my laughter
Take a second look
You might find that I am stronger
Take a second look
You might find that you are stronger
Imagination inspiration
It's only fair that I tell you
I plan on leaving here tonight with my pride
It gets me every time
With my pride
I'm proud to be I'm proud to be me


. . .



it's not far to go it's not far at all
it's not far to go you're not far at all
pools out back waters so cold there's not much
said that I don't know
the difference between frozen hands and feet
you come right out and you ask me
nobody ever asks me
in the pool out back water to my chest
towel lying in the grass
it looks a lot worse than it seems but you know baby
that's just me
we can only hope that it might be me
it's not far to go you're not far at all
and darlin darlin darlin darlin yeah
looking for a laugh wanna stop back when you're
done whining and taking things back
I'll be there as always feet submerged
and probably frozen
we can only hope that I'll be frozen
enough of that as if I care as if I need to know
like I was there
but if I was you just call my name call my name
and I'll be there if you call my name
you know I'll be there
imagine you're so far away no matter what you do
no matter what you say
you couldn't stop the world for a moment
in the middle of good-bye
you stop in to say hi is it all right if I say hi
it's not far to go it's not far at all


. . .



One time in your life
You've got the route in hand
But the map is stuck
They said it's not your fault
The tires are tired the camera moves
And your driver's been pulled
And I, I have always felt this
And I, I could never hear it
So I turned it up
And turned it on
And turned it down
Always the volume always the words
Review the press and tell it like it is
Your life is hype, your love is hype
And I will clench my own fist
And I will always wait
There's more there's more than blood
That beats through my heart
My hands my feet
Stuck between my tongue and my teeth
We don't know so we wait for tomorrow
We don't know so we wait for tomorrow
We don't know so we only go forward
Two times in your life
You will trace the edge
Sink your toes in
Review my press and tell it like it is
My life is hype my love is hype
And I, I will clench my own fist
And I, I will always wait
I'd wait up all night for you


. . .



Showers pounding out a new beat
I trade my old shoes for new feet
I grab a new seat
I don't like the one I got
The fabric's wearing through
And it's wearing me out
You're wearing me down
Watching old baseball games
And low budget telethons
Ain't like watching you yourself
When you yourself is on
Got time to wander to waste and to whine
But when it comes to you
It seems like I just can't find the time
So watch your head and then watch the ground
It's a silly time to learn to swim
When you start to drown
It's a silly time to learn to swim
On the way down
If I gave you my number
Would it still be the same
If I saved you from drowning
Promise me you'll never go away
Promise me you'll always stay
Closed down the last local zoo
I'm gonna win the endless war
Over who kills the last koala bear
And who in death will love him more and I
He grabs me by the hand
Drags me to the shore and says
Maybe you don't love me
But you'll grow to love me even more
And I well I'm not surprised


. . .


Here the lights fall just as hard
A bit softer in the stall
It's not really wrong
It's not really right
I'm wide awake
She's upfront upshot
Upstart up in every case
The kind of girl that whispers
Thank god for you
Oh yeah all you got is me
Oh yeah all you need is me
Her confusion is in the night that I stumbled
It's in the morning that I that I struggled
Because I start to forget
But she will always remember
The kind of girl who laughs and says
Get up off your knees
Oh yeah all you need is me
Oh yeah all you want is me
So you come and so you go
Tell me how hard how fast
Baby tell me how high I must go
Tell me what you want
And tell me what you need
Tell me how hard how fast
Baby how high I must go
Oh yeah well all you need is me
This is the time of my life

. . .



Shoulders of perfection
Let them drag you straight across
And tell me
Have we found perfection
Are we finally lost and
I'm staring from a distance
Why don't you come get a closer look
I can guarantee that lickin' the package
Ain't ever quite as good as
So they're looking for a new face
With a voice to go along
I can tell you right now that ain't my style
I don't do no sing alongs
With my freedom from the mighty sky to the ground
She said you've got the freedom baby
Walk out if they drag you down
Standin' on the edge of a crisis
We decide to raise our own voices
Consider that the sounds is our own
And the fact our feet grow up from the ground
This is where I wanna be
This is who I wanna be
So they get my voice
But they can they can never get my soul yes
There's a million things about me
You will never know
Like they caught me on video
And yeah they caught me on radio yeah
They caught me on video radio stereo
Freedom from the mighty sky to the ground
She said you've got the freedom to walk out
If you drag me down
You've got the freedom baby to walk out
If they drag you down
If they drag you
If they drag you
Walk out


. . .



I can't believe I've let you in
And now here I am
Telling you that I'm suffocating in here
Just like the drugs you are keeping me
I felt shark teeth underneath my socks
Before I lost much blood
Around this world will I be enough?
From the liquor stores
To the train stop floors
Your filthy room your drama blues
I am nothing if I'm not with you
I'm always right always wrong
Dressing bad is like loving you
There is nothing I haven't worn
Nothing I haven't said before
Your fluid is thick against my sheets
When you look at me
Oh so angry I know it's true
My strength has come from loving you
Behavior I just can't grow into
So you fake and you flaw
For your cops and your cause
It makes no difference to me
It's love that you stole, that you stole
From the liquor stores
To the train stop floors
Your filthy room your drama blues
I am nothing if I'm not with you
I'm always right always wrong
Dressing bad is like loving you
There is nothing I haven't worn
Nothing I haven't said before so here I am
Around this world will I be enough?
This is nothing I haven't said before
You are nothing I haven't felt before


. . .



Had a bad day
As bad as they come
Time to get a real job
You gotta stop having fun
So I got a real job
I'm working nine to nine
I'm making five bucks an hour
'til the day I die
Got a straw inside of me
And it's filled just fine
Got a straw inside of me
With the strongest wine
Well I'm one third passion
And I'm two thirds pride
Said I used to have a life once
He said I used to like your smile once
Singing silence to the world
But the stars kept marching
He said silence to everyone
I said I'm still talking
Have you got some more deep inside of you
I'll always have more for me
I take a little more for me baby
I got a picture of the way
The world has summed me up
If I could have one wish
I sure wish that I had never grown up
I got a picture of the way I looked
When I was three
I came out laughing screaming dancing
I used to be free spirited
Now I'm just free of sleep
I got a burning passion in my throat
I got a burning passion inside me
I got a job that wastes my time and gift
I got a life that needs a serious lift
And all the things I wanted
Yes all the things I want
Go on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on
Well I go on
Silence to the world
But the stars keep marching
Silence to everyone
But I kept talking
Have you got some more deep inside of you
Yes I'll always have more more me
He says all the things I want they go
So I, I take a little more for me


. . .



You've got your lights turned so they can see you
The very best of what you've got to offer
Tell them what your hands were made for
Tell them who your mouth was made for
You've got your profits and your mathematicians
The vocal fuel of a generation
Tell me what my hands were made for
Tell me who my mouth was made for
And please don't be mad at me
You'll get what you ask for
Come on come on come on
So very close to what you had expected
It makes it hard to keep my head up level
Tell me I'm what your hands were made for
Tell me I'm who your mouth was made for
And if you come down on me
Well you'll get what you ask for
Come on come on come on
I, I want to get myself back
High I want to get myself back
All of the things
That you promised me that you'd be
Now your hands are tired
And all of the things
That you promised me that you'd need
Now my hands are tired
Come on come on come on


. . .



Dignified in what she does
When she sings the smile that she brings
To all of you unaware of what's to come
I said tell me what's to come
Green is the color of my envy
It's the color of fame
So I'm gonna write it down to scream it out
And I'm never gonna be the same again
Fear is the color you've all exposed
Now I gotta get up here
And prove the importance
Of my clothes of my pose I suppose again
Hard core superstar
By far you're the ultimate star
Do you wanna be a superstar
Well that's what you are
You're gonna be a star
Do you wanna be a superstar?
Clever in what she does
Competing for the attention
Of those people that you know
My whole life revolves around your absence
Until I can't remember
What I do, what I know
Or where I go
Every moment was that moment
Every day was that day
Every second was that second
And I've lost myself again
Soon my face will be on every magazine
And then my voice
Will be on every frequency
Take my heart while you're at it why don't you
Sign me up to sell me out
I am my angel 'til death I do
I saw my first angel
And it was you
