Track Name: Don't Watch the News
All you know is what you've been told
Everyone believes the same things
No one discovers stuff anymore
And now your brains no longer fold
Underneath every news report
They're telling you to get more scared
And fear can never get resolved
You've been partially reinforced!
Your influences can be the best
Don't tolerate those boring bands
Just sing out loud and pound your chest
Or do a dance or clap your hands
No more blues bands No more bar beer No more cigarettes No more cokeheads No more Myspace No more cop shows No more flyers No more Phish phans No more clowning No more posters No more racists No more P(olitical) C(orrectness) No more welfare No more bullshit in my life!
Track Name: Inhuman
Try to tell me how to live my life
Try to tell me how to be a man
Try to tell me, I'm not listenin’
Go fuck yourself with your whole hand
You’re a feminist and anti-racist
So you only date black men or women
Being a “feminist” is really sexist
‘Cause I can hate you and not all women
Inhuman (2)
You're not human anymore
You sold yourself To be P.C.
You're a conformist whore
I wanna kill you but I don't have to
I wanna kill you but you beat me to it
You're dead inside, forcing a halt
I hate you and it's all your fault
Track Name: Liberal Hypocrites (All or Nothing)
Why do you wanna live in a world Where you can make fun of the weak and eccentric But I can’t be absurd And funny and ridiculous?
You say “Haha that guy’s awesome” When you see someone weirdly dressed
But when I say “I’m well-hung like Emmett Till’s dad” You get all offended and shit
It’s all or nothing:
Jews, blacks, gays, old, dumb, bald, poor, thin, weak, short, trans, dead, Nothing is sacred!
It’s all okay if you never mean it
But if you draw the line
Then you really believe it And you’re a fucking asshole
All or nothing
Track Name: The Last Hipster
He looks around for those he knows at shows But no one looks at him
He wants to dance with his cell phone But there’s no one left to do it with him
He’s 28 and remembers the glory days, Watching Orchid obliterate
But everyone he knew grew up and moved
And no one looks at him (2)
The last hipster won’t get a eulogy Because no one cares about him
They always loved him when he was like them
But they never thought of him really
He’s worked as a clerk at the bank for a year
Thanks to his dad for the career
And no one looks at him as he makes the change
And no one looks at him ‘cause he never changed
He never changed
Track Name: No Courage
This song’s about having no courage And how I never stare anyone down
Or if I’m leaning towards the ledge, I will get up and turn around
Always give them what they want
And don’t say no or you’re too mean
Never call anyone a cunt
And never let them hear you scream
Ahhhhh! I’m tired of this life!
No courage causes cancer
Lies are too nice
The truth is the answer
I’m gonna tell you what I think
And I will not apologize
You all want this ship to sink
But I’m gonna make it rise!
Don’t be afraid you can be proud
Honesty’s always allowed
Disappoint your dad don’t be too nice
‘Cause you both pay when you entice
Don’t go along to get along
Bang a gong and say they’re wrong
And if you need it to be strong
You can sing along on this song: “No courage, no courage, no courage, no courage”
Track Name: I am a Fucking Island
I am a fucking island
No one can touch me
I live alone
Real men don’t need anybody
My will is stone
I don’t need a lover
To steal my covers
And I don’t need friends
That I’d have to defend
I am a fucking island
You don’t need that shit!
Why do everything alone?
It won’t make it better will it?
You just want control.
Community is boring but why be lonely?
Real strength comes from vulnerability
I don’t have all the answers to give
But you can’t be a fucking island and really live
Don’t be an island
Track Name: Let it Out
Dogs are clawing out my eyes from the inside
If I don’t let them out, part of me will die
But when I do everyone gets scared
‘cuz they see what’s inside here
I breathe fire so they all jump higher
I’d rather stay alive and keep getting fired
Than cut off my balls and squash my heart
It’s all worth it just for this part: LET IT OUT!
My voice corrodes and my career dries up
But my heart explodes and my veins rise up
When I look back on this ride with pride
I know it was worth it to decide to LET IT OUT!
You hate your dad? LET IT OUT! You’re not p.c.? LET IT OUT! You’re pro-life? LET IT OUT! You hate smoke? LET IT OUT! You’re a nerd? LET IT OUT! You know you’re gay? LET IT OUT! You love the Lord? LET IT OUT! You think I’m wrong? LET IT OUT!
Track Name: Defense!
Laughing when you make a mistake
Making jokes about your face
Pretending you like a band when you don't
Modifying your opinions so you won't Offend anyone who's too sensitive
These are all defense mechanisms
Don't be such a pussy or life will kick your ass
Try to be cool? You'll never accomplish that
They call it offensive ‘cause you're on the offense Everybody sing it now: “Offense, offense, offense, offense”
Telling the truth when you look dumb
Arguing with someone
Never being moderate
Telling your dad he's full of shit
The easiest way to lose the fight Is being too nice your entire life
