Fast Times At Drop-Out High

alone at last. just nostalgia and I
we were sure to have a blast.
for you it was just another sunday
in a small indiana town.

I went by the place where you and I
wrote our names in wet cement
and for a moment remembered how it felt
to have no one understand that there’s this dream
and they’re not part of it. how soon we do forget.

the house was gone but the piano lingers on
and so does the fire that burned it to the ground.
you can take away all of my rights to see the day
but you can’t take away my love for the day.

then there’s the time that you took me aside
and said I was not your only son
childhood is so fucked up.
I never had any closer friends
than the ones I had when I was young.
alone again just you and i
nostalgia wave goodbye.
I think it’s time for me to go.

If You Really Want To Hear About It…

another lonely seaside town
where the seasons closed it down.
but if you close your eyes
you can almost hear the sounds of crowds gone by.

another year you’ll all be here
falling in love and watching sunsets and sunrises.
it’ll be grand and just what you planned
’til tomorrow comes and you’ve said your last goodbyes.

You Need A Hug

maybe you should work for "sick of it all"
or get a job with the l.a.p.d.
did someone switch your ritalin with ephedrine?
Just don’t take your fucking problems out on me.

I’d buy you a little fuzzy bunny
I’d put you on my x-mas card list
if you’d promise not to take your job so seriously
and realize you don’t have to be so pissed.

life ain’t all that bad. life ain’t all that bad.
even if henry rollins is your dad.
life ain’t all that bad. life ain’t all that bad.

Bad Case Of Broken Heart

today I’m missing something
in this small new england town.
here’s to you my best friend.
just wanted to say that I miss
having you around.

I’m staring at your picture
and dreaming that I could hold your hand.
we’d walk down to the ocean
and I would write your name in the sand.

they say sometimes you need some time apart
but I’ve got a bad case of broken heart.
and you’re the only one who’s got the cure.
and I can’t live another day without seeing you smile.

2000 miles between us and I guess that I’m the one to blame.

Giving Up On Love

these past few weeks
I’ve been confused
sometimes I wonder if
I’m better off alone.

you fall in love
then break your heart.
you fall in love again
its never ending.

I used to have this friend
who took his fiance
to see billy idol
a couple weeks before
their wedding day.
the chick got backstage
and left my friend outside.
next day he called
from a hotel
asking for a ride.

I guess I’m giving up on love [x3]
’cause it really kind of sucks

uninspired
and growing tired
why am I always
so attracted to drama?

so here I am
grown up at 23
will someone tell me
what it takes to be happy?

I play in my band
and write a lot of songs
about relationships
and how mine went wrong.
maybe I’ll meet that special
girl along the way
then she’ll break my heart
and leave me crying.
