Track Name: Calm Down
Calm down
Please calm down
My brain is full right now
And I could use a cigarette
And I don’t even smoke
And I don’t even care
I don’t even care
No, I don’t even care

And when the rain falls
It falls down hard
And when the rain falls
I won’t care at all

All I need is a drink with my gals
And the marinate in a car
In a cul-de-sac in the dark
In the back I’ll sing my lungs out
Until the night dissolves
And my problems solve themselves
‘Cause I don’t even care
I don’t even care
I don’t even care
No, I don’t even care

And when the rain falls
It falls down hard
And when the rain falls
I won’t care at all

When the fog rolls in
It comes in harsh
When the rain falls
It falls down hard
When the storm rolls in
The thunder fills the air
And when the sun rolls out
The dark will seem more fair

And when the rain falls
It falls down hard
And when the rain falls
I won’t care at all
And when the rain falls
I won’t care at all
Track Name: You Make Me
You make me feel like...
...And you will never know.
Track Name: Dumb Enough
He said come to the dark side
I said boy I invented it
I don’t need an invitation
But I’ll come sit with you
If you promise not to read
Too far between the lines

You wouldn’t like what you find
When you open this book
Don’t judge me by my cover
I’m a lot worse than I look

But I’m not dumb enough to fall
In love with someone who’s
Dumb enough to fall in love with me
I don’t think I’m heartless
I just think I value my heart less
Than my sanity

You’re a wild thing that’s fine with me
Go wild, whatever brings you peace
But I don't need an invitation
But you can sit with me
And watch the bonfire
Just don’t sit too close
I wouldn’t wanna burn you

That’s all I’m really ever good for
Is a quick flame
But soon as the storm starts
It always sends the same

And I’m not dumb enough to fall
In love with someone who’s
Dumb enough to fall in love with me
I don’t think I’m heartless
I just think I value my heart less
Than my sanity

I’m not dumb enough to fall
In love with someone who’s
Dumb enough to fall in love with me
I don’t think I’m heartless
I just think I value my heart less
Than my sanity
Track Name: Rather Never
They don’t know where I come from
And they’ll never get the chance
‘Cause I’m always stuck in my own world
My own world, I’m always stuck
In my own world
But I’ve tried to leave the island
But the waves are just too rough
And people never ask about that stuff
So I just keep my mouth shut

Why take everything to heart
While pretending you don’t have one
Why take everything to heart
If you don’t have one

So your life’s a little boring
And you have a few regrets
You have the goods to fix it all
You just wanna be a wreck
Life’s not quite as bad
As you wish it was
So you need to make a scene
So you’ll get titled drama queen
But what am I thinkin’
Havin’ an opinion
And I’d bet you’d take it rough
And people never ask about that stuff
So I’ll just keep my mouth shut

Why take everything to heart
While pretending you don’t have one
Why take everything to heart
If you don’t have one

So I’m fake if I don’t say it
And I’m an asshole if I do
So I’d rather just avoid it altogether
Never talk to you

Why take everything to heart
While pretending you don’t have one
Why take everything to heart
If you don’t have one


So I’m fake if I don’t say it
And I’m an asshole if I do
So I’d rather just avoid it altogether
Never talk to you
Don’t see the point in tryin’
If tryin’s all I’ll get
And everyone just gets upset
I’m much too poor to ante up
I’d rather never bet
Track Name: Complain, Complain
Call me a liar but you know I'm right
I speak the truth and I've got proof,
What do you got
On your throne that you built on your own
In a castle, in a kingdom, made out of bones
In the closest, oh, it's there but you forgot it
I found it, and you freaked out
there's no doubt, I hit a nerve
When will you learn, all I do is burn
I’m sorry, dear; it was just your turn

And I'm expected to apologize to you
For something that I clearly meant to do
But I won't, I refuse
You aren't much to lose

But is a ghost really there if you don't give it attention
Or hear the damned curses or whispered intention
Call me a sinner if that makes you feel holy
But lord knows that you feel a little bit lonely
If only you'd listened to me
You wouldn't be watching every breath that you breathe
And breathing so goddam heavily

And I'm expected to apologize to you
For something that I clearly meant to do
But I won't, I refuse
You aren't much to lose


I know you always resented where I was going
But I was over all your ignorant moaning
Complain, complain is all he did
I finally had to shoot the kid
I'd given up long before then
When you start crumblin'
Crumlin’ over the
Pressure to be better than me

You do it to yourself (4x)

So, no, I won't apologize to you
For something I clearly meant to do
No I won't, I refuse
You aren't much to lose
Track Name: When You Won't
Count me out when they count you in
‘Cause I don’t ever wanna see your face again
If I had a penny for all the ways
You left me behind
I’d buy those tickets and leave tonight
There’s no point in staying here anyway

Wow

Stop counting the pennies you’d have
Stop counting the places you’d hide
Start counting the friends that you’d have
If you’d just swallowed your pride
But you can’t, and you don’t,
No you won’t, ‘cause
Kings don’t apologize

Erase me with your vices
But we all know the crisis here
Where’s all your money gone
You spent it on bein’ everything
You used to hate, you’re a fake
And a phony
You’re always alone,
But you made it that way
On your own

Wow

Stop counting the pennies you’d have
Stop counting the places you’d hide
Start counting the friends that you’d have
If you’d just swallowed your pride
But you can’t, and you don’t,
No you won’t, ‘cause
Kings don’t apologize

Brace yourself
The king is done
Bow down no more
His time has come
The crown is burning
Churning, turning
Passion into ashes

Wow

Stop counting the pennies you’d have
Stop counting the places you’d hide
Start counting the friends that you’d have
If you’d just swallowed your pride
But you can’t, and you don’t,
No you won’t, ‘cause
Kings don’t apologize
Track Name: They Never Tell You
Truth be told that I don’t know
If I can make it without the green and gold
We must be bold to break the mold
Or keep your head down low and do as your told

And they never tell you what to do
When the devil and the angel on your shoulder
Are sayin’ the same thing
They’re sayin’ the same thing
Sayin’ the same thing,
Sayin’ the same thing

I’ve tried to solve the puzzle still
I ponder, think, my thoughts try to break my will
In my sleep at night or lack of it
Nightmares of seein’ myself in the pit
But no one knows

And they never tell you what to do
When the devil and the angel on your shoulder
Are sayin’ the same thing
They’re sayin’ the same thing
Sayin’ the same thing,
Sayin’ the same thing

And in these walls I call a skull
Doubt creeps about and I see my fall
But my knees aren’t weak and I’ll stand tall
‘Cause failure and not trying at all
Are the same thing

Now, now, now, now
Don’t get me wrong
I’ll try, dammit, I’ll try
‘Cause I’d rather rise and fall
Than not all all

And they never tell you what to do
When the devil and the angel on your shoulder
Are sayin’ the same thing
They’re sayin’ the same thing
Sayin’ the same thing,
Sayin’ the same thing

You can do it (8x)

They’re sayin’ the same thing
Sayin’ the same thing,
Sayin’ the same thing

And they never tell you what to do
When the devil and the angel on your shoulder
Are sayin’ the same thing
Track Name: Smudges
I don't need that on my soul
I don't have humanity to spare
I'll push you down a set of stairs
If you should start to care
I'm not a nice person at all
But I've tried so many times
But darkness laughs inside my veins
My brain is really strange
It doesn’t make me happy
But it doesn't make me sad
I'm a monster and I know it
My eyes should surely show it
If you should ever start to care
Beware; I warned you, there’s no “fair”
I'm the one your nightmares are scared of

Since then I've lost something
And gained a smudge or two
I'm dirty on the inside
And It's because of you

I should have been screaming
No, no, no
I should have been screaming
Don't touch me, don't touch me

I don't need that on my soul
I don't have humanity to spare
I'll push you down a set of stairs
If you should start to care
I'm not a nice person at all
I've tried so many times
But darkness laughs inside my veins
My brain is really strange
It doesn’t make me happy
But it doesn't make me sad
I'm a monster and I know it
And my eyes will surely show it
If you should ever start to care
Beware, I warned you, there’s no fair
I'm the one your nightmares are scared of

No need to call me crazy
No, no, I know I’m crazy
Make me out like a monster
They deserve the facts
But don’t forget who made me
You drove me fucking crazy
Since then I’ve lost something
And gained a smudge or two
I’m dirty on the inside
And it’s because of you
Track Name: Childish
I miss something about you
I miss you'd frown
And how I’d look at you and I'd feel sad
I miss something about you
I miss how you’d cry at movies
And how I’d look at you and I'd cry too
I don’t get it
You’d make me feel

It’s like you had blue markers and you
Colored me in
Like a kid's coloring book
And you'd make me feel like a child, sometimes
But I miss that
‘Cause you’d make me feel
I miss that about you
You’d make me feel

But now, all that’s left
Is a picture of you I tore up when I was angry
Angry like red, or maybe black
A crayon melting, melting
But I don’t feel it
‘Cause I don’t really feel anything
Anymore
I don’t miss you
Who are you anyway?
Just someone I used to think about
And like, maybe
But now who are you?
Where are you?
I don’t care anymore
Who are you?
