Track Name: Paint The Town Brown
When I woke up this afternoon,
The smell of weed and sex all up in my room,
The shiny sunshine was a-shinin' through,
I get this feeling in my bones you know what to do.

woohooohyeahsaidyeah

I got zits on my ass and too much hair on my face,
My body odor is stinking up the place,
But something about me makes you wanna stick around,
So let's blow this place and go paint the town brown.

ahyeahsaidyeahsaidyeahyeahyeahoohwoo
Track Name: What You Think I've Become
Someday I will be a preacher man and,
My church will be a fucking garbage can.
Singin' out hymns about love and brotherhood,
And asking people for a dollar so I can buy some food.

Is this what you think I've become?

Someday I will find me a big-tittied slut to fuck,
Maybe she'll even let me putt it in her butt,
Cruise down the road doin' 95 and snortin cocaine,
And I'll shoot you in the face if you call me insane.

Is this what you think I've become?

Someday I will be in a real rock n roll band,
Ain't gotta sing these dumb songs no more, man,
I want craft service at every fucking show,
And I will not play if there's a brown m&m in my bowl.

Is this what you think I've become?

Someday I think I'll drink ten bottles of cough medicine,
And I will pretend that you are still my friend,
I'll try to kill myself by drinking myself to death,
Ten years go by, and drunken I was left.
Track Name: I'm Sleepy
I'm sleepy, I want to take a nap,
I'm sleepy, I want to take a nap,
I only slept five hours last night,
And then I slept sixteen hours today,
I'm sleepy, I wanna take a nap,
I'm so tired, oh, I want to take a nap,
Will you take a nap with me, tee hee hee?

Take a nap with me cause I'm sleepy.
Take a nap with me cause I'm sleepy.
Take a nap with me.

Oh yeahhhhhh...so sleepy...I'm sleepy guys,
I'm sleepy.
Track Name: Stardust Memories
i understand that life is created in my hands.
looking up at the sky all day.
it makes me say,
will i go on living this way?

once again I've found myself staring at the sun.
and wherever you are i hope you're having fun.

do i just think i think?
spitting blood into the sink.
am i happy? am i complete?
is this real? what do you feel?

once again I've found myself staring at the sun.
and wherever you are i hope you're having fun.

a star somewhere out there,
makes the sun seem so small.
so is there any difference to what we do at all?
or are we gearing up for a fall?

once again I've found myself staring at the sun.
Track Name: Celebrity
I want to be a celebrity,
so everyone in the world will care about every inch of me,
And every time I take a shit, I'll be on TV,
And every woman in the world will throw themselves at me,

And maybe if I wasn't so lazy,
I wouldn't feel crazy when you talk to me,
And everyone says I should follow my dreams,
I'm trying but I'm not getting very far,

And you know every day I serve coffee to creeps,
And they tell me so many things that make me feel weak,
But I've got my soul and I've got my heart,
Cause I know that somehow we'll never grow apart,

Earlier today while organizing my dvd's,
I realized that life is whatever you want it to be,
So if you wanna go dancing then go right ahead,
As for me, I think I'll spend all day right here in bed.

But it's not because I'm feeling bad,
In fact, I'm starting to feel ok,
So please don't think I'm feeling sad,
Cause it's just all I want to do today.
It's all I want to do today.

Maybe if I had a different job,
Like a doctor, or an actor, or an astronaut,
I'd spend my time saving the human race,
Instead of just taking up space,

But probably I'd moan after a week or two,
I don't get enough sleep, oh what should I do,
I got a headache, and I hate my life,
No, baby, we can't make love tonight,

I gotta get up early in the morning too,
To make sure I don't miss my favorite cartoons,
So if you wanna go dancing then go right head,
As for me, I think I'll spend all day right here in bed.

But it's not because I'm feeling bad,
In fact, I'm starting to feel ok,
So please don't think I'm feeling sad,
Cause it's just all I want to do today.
It's all I want to do today.
Track Name: Nightmare City
Niiiighhhhhtttttmareeeeee cityyyyyyyy.
Hahahahahahahah.
Gibberish shit blah blah blah.
Nightmares are shitty,
In Nightmare City.
Track Name: Everyone Loves God
everyone loves god.
and god loves everyone.
but god doesn't have the time to tell the time.
he just sits around and watches the news,
to see the people die.

but god loves everyone.
and everyone loves god.
but he's a busy man.

he just watches the news,
to see everyone die.
because he loves us so.
he loves us so.
Track Name: In My Dreams
*ahem*

I throw myself into the wind and let my soul cave in.
And as the trees wave goodbye,
A magazine with you on the cover floats by.
And it makes me wonder why.
Why do I even try?

To realize my disguise,
To set my heart free I gotta let go of your eyes,
but that's easier said then done.

In my dreams life ain't quite like it seems.
Your hair is way down to your knees.
The sky is pink and the ocean is green,
and you still belong to me.

I just want to keep dreaming,
When I should be leaving.

In my dreams life ain't quite like it seems.
Your hair is way down to your knees.
The sky is pink and the ocean is green,
and you still belong to me.
Track Name: Brown Eyed Angel
I'm hanging up a picture of us from years ago.
It makes me forget my troubles when I'm feeling low.
I just look right up on my wall and I will see,
My long lost brown eyed angel looking back at me.

Been travelling 'round the world in a rock n roll band.
I've played New York City, I've played Japan.
And even though I got 50 million screaming fans,
I still ain't got my brown eyed angel holding my hand.

Once upon a time in a midsummer's evening,
I met a man in a restaurant I was leaving.
He said to me, "Boy, don't you know?"
"If you love someone, you got to let them go."

But I just can't seem to forget about this girl.
She was so sweet to me, she was my world.
Now she's gone forever it seems.
Life is just a placebo masquerading as a dream.

All my love goes to you.
I know it's not much, but it's the best I can do.
Please, I'm begging you, hear my song.
Brown eyed angel, please come back home.

(Commence boot-scootin' vocal solo)
Track Name: Yeah Ok
i dunno
Track Name: Nothing Should Ever Be A Big Deal
so it hasn't rained in a long long while
and it's been forever since I've seen you smile
you tell me I'm a waste of your time
well, I don't think you're wasting mine

nothing should ever be a big deal
there's so much in life to worry about
love and time seem so real
there's just no way that we can get out

you tell me I'm a liar and I'm good for nothing
well baby, life's too short for that
why can't we smile and forget our troubles?
there's no reason for us to live like that

nothing should ever be a big deal
there's so much in life to worry about
love and time seem so real
there's just no way that we can get out

ahhhh yeah
Track Name: I Still Love You
In times of doubt,
In times of sorrow,
Your beautiful face is what I think about.

At night it's the same,
Or so it seems,
I rest my head, you walk in my dreams.

But I still love you,
To me it is still true,
Though now you are gone,
And I'm left alone.

Now you are gone.
Track Name: Szandora
Scheming and screaming,
Crying and bleeding,
Guess I'll spend my time dreaming bout you.

Got nothing to do,
And I don't know why,
Guess I'll just go and die.

Spent the last ten years,
Wishing I was someone else,
Gettin' kinda sick of being myself.
Track Name: Who Are You?
Walking home by myself in the dark,
Trying not to bleed all over the place.
I can't stop thinking about what happened,
Cause now I don't even recognize your face.

Who are you tonight?
Do you even know?
The only thing I remember is your name,
Cause you are not the same person I used to know.

Do you remember the world we created?
Or at least the one where I thought I lived,
Is there any chance it's still there, or was my time wasted?
What do I have to do for a time machine?

Who are you tonight?
Do you even know?
The only thing I remember is your name,
Cause you are not the same person I used to know.

Tell me, tell me, who are you fucking tonight?
Cause when everybody loves you it feels so right,
Does it even matter? These words I say,
Are you even listening anyway?

Who are you tonight?
Are you feeling fake?
The only thing I want is my old friend back.

I will wait a lifetime if that's what it takes.
