Track Name: Utterly Pointless
Walking with the dead
Sleeping in your bed
Losing my trust and sanity
The door ain't locked, don't need no key
I will not accept defeat
I don't need your love or your money

That's right, yeah, that's right
It's all so pointless
Goodbye and good night
It's all so pointless

Dreaming of another land
Leaving behind my ruined plans
Searching for a shred of humanity
Looked high and low but still cannot see

That's right, yeah, that's right
It's all so pointless
Goodbye and good night
It's all so pointless
Track Name: Anxiety By Numbers
Nobody loves me and nobody loves you
So we should take drugs and freak out if you want to
We will never be saved, we will turn into slaves
Of the people we used to devote all our time to

Fall into love and then you fall out
Put on a Dables CD and listen to me pout
Maybe something I say will make you shed a tear
Or if you see my face, you will be filled with fear

It's just anxiety by numbers
Go to the store and lose your mind
Try to moonwalk but just stumble
Track Name: Waste
Just another day that I'm gonna waste
I don't know why but your face makes me cry
Turn the TV off, let's sit and talk
If you want we can get high to make the time pass by

We've got time to kill so say what you will
If there's anything you need just let me know
If you wanna get outta here well then just go

Cause it's a level playing field
Where everything seems so damn real
But don't you know that nothing should ever be a big deal

Cause I'm a waste of time, of space
My mother told me that when I die
I'm gonna burn in hell

burn in hell
Track Name: The Ballad of a Loner
Hanging out all by myself
I don't need nobody else
Sittin' here, feeling the fear
Loving every second of my wasted life

ah yeah

Nothing's going on and nothing will
Got so much time that I gotta kill
I can't see where I'm going still
Climb back up and roll down the hill
Track Name: Stormy's Song
Got nothing to do so I'll just sit around here with you
I'd rather be some place else but I don't know where to go
Rather be lost, without a cause
As long as what I'm doing does not really matter at all

I need you to believe me when I say
I hate everyone and everything
I want you to see, to believe
That I can't be you and you can't be me

So we need to leave this scene and burn it
And never speak of this to anyone
Breath in the lies and breath out an excuse
To leave this behind and never, ever come back

Turn the TV on and watch some TV
But it don't speak, speak to me
It just sounds like I'm someone else

Drink some water cause your body needs that shit
And don't ever complain a single bit, ever

I need you to see, to believe that I must grow up and I must move on
The grass is greener on the other side of the world, across the desert
The grass is greener anywhere at all and I just feel I need you to be there for me
When I close my eyes for the last time
Track Name: Don't Worry, I'm in Heaven in Now
Don't fret for me now
Don't be afraid or confused
I'm in a strange place now baby
But that's old news

Don't worry I'm in heaven now
Hanging out on streets paved with gold
Kissed by an angel every night
Living in the greatest story ever told

Don't worry I'm in heaven now
And I don't ever wanna leave
Don't ever wanna go back to hell

Don't worry I'm in heaven now
And I think I'll stay here for a while
But only if you're here with me

And now the songs of pain are dead
"Negative Superman" left my head
Every day is a new day now
Found my place in the clouds somehow

Don't worry I'm in heaven now
Hanging out on streets paved with gold
Kissed by an angel every night
Living in the greatest story ever told

Don't worry I'm in heaven now
And I don't ever wanna leave
Don't ever wanna go back to hell

Don't worry I'm in heaven now
And I think I'll stay here for a while
But only if you're here with me
Track Name: All I Want For Christmas
All I want for Christmas is you
You and only you
We could fall in love again, yes we could
If you want to

The thought of you by my side is the only gift I desire

I need you tonight
I know you want me in your life
So why deny ourselves something so nice?
All I want for Christmas is you by my side

I don't know what to do about you
It's hard to make you see
I just know that on Christmas day I need you to say
I love you and I miss you too
And I think we could be together

I need you tonight
I know you want me in your life
So why deny ourselves something so nice?
All I want for Christmas is you by my side
Track Name: I'm So Sorry
You woke me up from a dream to break my heart
I guess I knew it would end this way right from the start
I'm so sorry that I can't be who you want me to be

I'm so sorry

I'm losing sleep worrying about things out of my reach
But I'm alright, yeah, I'm really ok in a weird sort of way
I wanted to be a part of your life but that wasn't my fate

I'm so sorry
I wanted us to be more...but I'm just me
Track Name: Falling Apart
Brought inside from the cold
So you can lay down your load
Let the sun rise on your mind
And pretend you're having a good time

There's a spider on the wall
Better get him before he runs down the hall
Never see him again
Until he poisons you in the end

Am I to blame for my life?
I think I am, and I think you might
Understand that I might make
More of the same mistakes again

We are falling apart
I am breaking my own heart
Track Name: The Size of The Moon
One time when I was just a little boy
Dreams the size the moon
I'd stay awake late at night
And wonder when I'd meet you

Don't be afraid to make a mistake
Cause how else will you learn anything?
You will make it home soon

I know we can achieve our dreams
If you put your heart in everything
We probably won't make any money
But that's ok with me

Cause I got an angel living with me
When I close my eyes she never leaves

You will make it home soon
Just let your heart guide you
You will make it home soon
Believe in love so true
Track Name: Wined and Dined
originally written by Syd Barrett, just google the lyrics dummy! if I reprint them I could get sued & shit! you guys want me to get sued? Dang! what the heck guys?
Track Name: Piano
She wanted to play the piano
but her hands couldn't reach the keys
When her hands could finally reach the keys
her feet couldn't reach the floor

When her hands could finally reach the keys
And her feet could finally reach the floor
She didn't want to play that old piano anymore
Track Name: No Matter Where I Go
When I am afraid or if I am alone
I just start to sing a song
Cause no matter where I go
I got music in my soul
And I know things will be ok

And when you're near I have no fear
And I hope that you feel the same
