Track Name: That Little Thing
Everybody loves that little thing,
That you do with your face.
And everybody smiles, and everybody laughs.
It's a total disgrace.

You put it on.
You wear it out.
You don't know the things you want to be.

And you do'nt know,
Or you don't care,
That they're putting you down.
Well you just smile,
Put on your big hair,
And you act like the clown.

You put it on.
You wear it out.
You don't know a thing about it.
Track Name: Everytime
Everytime is never the time,
For you to talk to me.
Everytime is never the time,
For me to talk to yoUseless, useless,
I feel useLess for me is more for yoUseless, useless,
I feel useLessons to be learned.
I don't underStand on your own,
You must stand on your Ownly way to know,
If you can withStand on my own I must stand on my own.
Stand on my own I must stand on
You owe me.
Track Name: The Innovator
Rise and be seen and become the things you need.
Rise and be seen and recount the dream to me.
Rise up!
You are the innovator, and as the innovator you will make a scene.
Rise up!
Track Name: Creep
I can hear you living in that room above my head,
With my class pressed to the wall,
I can't ignore anything that's said.
Well, you walk too loud,. You talk too loud.
My ears can't talk no more.
I live here too, and that's my room,
Because my ceiling is your floor.
And I bang on the pipes against your life.
You are the creep. I've got to keep up.

Don't make me.
I'm coming upstairs!
I'm coming upstairs!
Don't make me.

I will make him see the error of his ways,
And I will cherish his apology some day.
I will break him like this life has broken me.
I won't shout. I'll wear him out,
With all of my self-pity.

The volume that you live at,
Well, it's driving me insane.
You walk to loud. You talk too loud.
My ears can't take the strain.
And I bang on the pipes against your life. Shut up!
You are the creep. I've got to keep up.

I live to hate you only,
But without you,
I'd be lonely.
Track Name: Time of my Life
I'm waiting for the time of my life,
But I can't wait forever.
As I stew in a marinade of microbrew suds,
And I'm soaking up flavor.
So wrap me in plastic,
And take me on home.
I'm the perfect meat package.
And rost me on high 'til I pop out my plug,
In your microwave device.

I'm waiting for the time of my life,
But I can't wait forever.
So as I simmer,
Keep an eye on the clock,
So I don't turn to leather.

I don't think it's natural,
But you know I can't stop,
'Cause my heart isn't in it.
So I pick up the phone,
And I dial you on top,
And I pay by the minute.
And soon you're the goon in the latex baloon,
And I smile like a child.
And I pay as I play,
And I hope that you'll say,
That you'll keep me beguiled.

I'm waiting for the time of my life,
But I can't wait forever.
You know that I hate when you make me wait,
So feed me my pleasure.
Track Name: Thanks
Thanks for coming to our party.
I hope you had a really good time.
If you didn't end up in the bathroom puking up you guts,
You probably didn't have enough wine.
Thanks for coming to our party.
You lit up the room with cheer,.
Couldn't tell if you were really glad to see me,
Or if you just had a little teeny weeny itsy bitsy bit,
Too much beer.
