I'm wide awake, it's 5 AM Time zones and zip codes are getting to me You made your mark, you know it's true Not just the luggage marked SEV Now every wall could use a tag And every pole could use a flag Still you wanna zip when I wanna zag You're my favorite bag Sunday morning came down with a crash Step out the door and see what I can find Maybe this is where I want to be Set up shop, you won't be too far behind Sometimes it pulls, sometimes it drags Sometimes it sinks, sometimes it sags Darling, don't delay now don't you lag You're my favorite bag Wherever I go I want you beside me Or me with you wherever that might be Aw yeah You're my favorite bag

Take me in like smoke, put me out like a cigarette At least I had a function Raise me up, build my hopes only to see them get Beat down with a truncheon Is it the drink making you say it on a whim? If you love me so much tell me why are you with him? I could relay the same "I love ya's" to you But would you even believe it What else can I do to see if I made the cut? Can't take another minute Aw, honey, do you really think of me that dim? If you love me so much tell me why are you with him? Take me in like smoke, put me out like a cigarette At least I had a function Raise me up, build my hopes only to see the get Beat down with a truncheon Is it the drink making you say it on a whim? If you love me so much tell me why are you with him?

Bastard, he's a lucky one, a bastard just the same Though he's done nothing wrong there's still plenty to blame Like holding on to you, doing all the lovely things couples do Still you think that he's a catch, he picked all the locks and he lifted the latch All I'm asking is for a chance Come on, now, I think I see it in your glance The choice is yours now, is it the chase or the kill? The price to render something tender We'll just send him the bill Honey, I can shower you with praises, if I may But my weak-powered metaphors could keep us here all day I'm not asking you to lie just start constructing those alibis There's no reason to the rhyme Don't let the hands on the clock be the only ones to give me the time All I'm asking is for a chance Come on, now, I think I see it in your glance The choice is yours now, is it the chase or the kill? The price to render something tender We'll just send him the bill Bastard, bastard Go on and send him the bill Why don't you send him the bill? Go on and send him the bill Come on and send him the bill

A comment is made, turns into an accusation There'll be tears before bedtime tonight Curled up on the bathroom floor, that is the destination I don't want to talk about it, I don't want to have a fight I'm fine, I'm fine But it's your face you're slapping Do we sit idly by and pretend nothing happened? Never start a land war in Asia minor Our are problems compared to that but we get the gist Selective hearing or is it simply amnesia? But you know I'll never give the knife a twist I'm fine, I'm fine But it's your face you're slapping Do we sit idly by and pretend nothing happened?

Fixin To Die 03:17
Say pleased to meet me so discretely as you hold out your hand The placeholders, reheat leftovers, can be so bland I'm such a sucker, a guest conductor, now strike up the band Strike up the band, strike up the band It's a car crash that's meant to collide Nobody's hurt, now that is a lie In a mad dash to save one's pride Time to quit and split and sit and now I'm fixin to die After take off and the payoff are heights so grand Another letdown, King Shit of Shit-town, is ready to land March to the sea, get burnt for free, and break up the band Break up the band, break up the band It's a car crash that's meant to collide Nobody's hurt, now that is a lie In a mad dash to save one's pride Time to quite and split and sit now I'm fixin to die I'm such a sucker, a guest conductor March to the sea, get burnt for free Strike up the band, strike up the band Break up the band, break up the band

If only I was lonely and double all of your dares Maybe double something else down there If only I was lonely Propose something unholy, perhaps perfectly prepare To announce all of your affairs Propose something unholy You come bounding into this joint Flexible and so adroit I'm sorry you missed the point I'm sorry, so sorry If only I was lonely, if only I was lonely Now someone calls me "mine" She won me with just one look It was a chance that I already took Now someone calls me "mine" Just casting out your line, hope to catch me on your hook Steal me away like a common crook Just casting out your line Where are the drinks? Let them all pour Spill on my jeans and on the floor Make eyes at me then make for the door I'm sorry, so sorry If only I was lonely, if only I was lonely You come bounding into this joint Flexible and so adroit I'm sorry you missed the point I'm sorry, so sorry If only I was lonely, if only I was lonely

Bukkake in the 802 Nothing to see here, nothing to do Don't you know it's all they demand Every night the same fucking bands Nothing to see here, nothing to do Bukkake in the 802 Bukkake in the O.N.E. Wondering how come they don't include me Sing your songs, listen to the sounds But every night it's a reach around Wondering how come they don't include me Bukkake in the O.N.E. I'm going to scream "Look at me! Look at me! Look at me!" until I have no voice All it takes is a little Dutch courage and a whole lot of poise Always remember one man's trash is another man's toys Always remember one man's hit is another man's noise Bukkake in the Green Mountain State Wondering who I have to fellate In the clique you get the pass Cause it's all about kissing some ass Wondering who I have to fellate Bukkake in the Green Mountain State Bukkake in the 802 Nothing to see here, nothing to do Don't you know it's all they demand Every night the same fucking bands Nothing to see here, nothing to do Bukkake in the 802

If I can't see you I'm going to drink myself blind Here I am yours sealed, delivered, and signed You're that diamond in the rough, so hard to find If I can't see you I'm going to drink myself blind If I can't hold you I'll grab the bottle brigade And then a guitar that's shabbily played Don't throw out this heart like a hand grenade If I can't hold you I'll grab the bottle brigage If I can't see you I'm going to drink myself blind Here I am yours sealed, delivered, and signed You're that diamond in the rough, so hard to find If I can't see you I'm going to drink myself blind And if I can't hear you may silence be gold for me

Sleep is just a dream away Like most of my dreams it won't be coming true soon Stretched out upon the couch Yeah, I'm on the couch, you're forced to be in another room Peter Francis Geraci comes on the TV Solving the bankruptcy puzzle When all I want is to wear you like a muzzle If you want we can go for a ride in my automobile After hours, school parking lot, try to cop a feel The radio is playing Al Green, if we honk the horn we might be seen What do you say? But anyway, but anyway Peter Francis Geraci comes on the TV With his same old song and dance When all I want is to get into your pants Sleep is just a dream away Stretched out upon the couch

We're proud to be held for ransom and forced to walk off the plank We're proud to breathe dirty air as long as there's gas in the tank Thank God for the flag and the one true religion We're proud to be the property of multinationals We're proud that poison water is what's keeping our glasses full Only traitors make up the opposition So maybe you should bite your tongue We're proud that we can't afford to be in bad health We're proud that debt is now our definition of wealth While the President's men are cashing in their options We're proud that our kids can't locate shit from Shanghai We're proud that all our bucks go to a defense that only works in sci-fi Only traitors make up the opposition So maybe you should bite your tongue So maybe you should bite your tongue I'm not going to bite my tongue
