Track Name: Comfort Service
Oh bellboy
Where’s my luggage
Oh Bellboy
Bring my luggage

Well I am high society and I expect the best of care
I’ll take the elevator, but the bellboy takes the stairs

Are you gonna ring my bell
Are you gonna ring my bell
Are you gonna ring my bell
Are you gonna ring, are you gonna ring, are you gonna ring my bell

Oh housekeeping
Where’s my mint
Oh housekeeping
Bring more towels

Fluff the pillows, change the sheets, clean up this god damn mess
Don’t disturb, not a word, I need my beauty rest

Are you gonna ring my bell
Are you gonna ring my bell
Are you gonna ring my bell
Are you gonna ring, are you gonna ring, are you gonna ring my bell

Oh room service
Where’s my dinner
Oh room service
Bring champagne

The water is not sparkling and the glasses all have spots
This chicken is so overcooked and the bar is understocked.

Are you gonna ring my bell
Are you gonna ring my bell
Are you gonna ring my bell
Are you gonna ring, are you gonna ring, are you gonna ring my bell
Track Name: Think Again
I wanna be able to think again
I wanna be able to breathe
I wanna be able to feel again
I wanna be able to scream

Hit a brick wall, going home. Now we’re out here on our own
Loss of feeling, loss of heart. How’d we get so torn apart

Don’t fear me now
Don’t fear me now
Don’t fear me now
Don’t fear me now, now that I got here

There is nothing, I could say, that will make this go away
But I can tell that, nothing’s right, cause you don’t fall asleep at night

Don’t fear me now
Don’t fear me now
Don’t fear me now
Don’t fear me now, now that I got here

Make me crazy, make me real. What I’d give to fucking heal
We are broken, we are diseased, and I am begging on my knees

Don’t fear me now
Don’t fear me now
Don’t fear me now
Don’t fear me now, now that I got here
Track Name: Blueberry Blues
You wanna know will it take take take
It’s magical when it breaks breaks breaks
This up and down, killer vow, watch your bow
Screaming fake fake fake

It’s a club you know you can’t get in
It’s a light snuffed out by a jealous wind
Play a game you know you’ll never win

I wanna be punk rock royalty
Lots of stares, lots of drinks, it’s all for free,
Just a game, make my name, call me queen bee

Got a crown, Got a crown, gotta get down
Got a crown, Got a crown, gotta get down

Come on up, watch us make make make
Livin high, are you wake wake wake
She’s a dream, make a scene, in the green
All the cake cake cake

It’s a club you know you can’t get in
It’s a light snuffed out by a jealous wind
Play a game you know you’ll never win

I wanna be punk rock royalty
Lots of stares, lots of drinks, it’s all for free,
Just a game, make my name, call me queen bee

Got a crown, Got a crown, gotta get down
Got a crown, Got a crown, gotta get down

Got a crown, Got a crown, gotta get down
Got a crown, Got a crown, gotta get down

I wanna be punk rock royalty
I wanna be i wanna be the queen bee
I wanna be i wanna be the queen bee

Got a crown, Got a crown, gotta get down
Got a crown, Got a crown, gotta get down

Gotta get down
Track Name: Nice Guys
Play the fucking victim just a little more
When no one wants to fuck you cause you’re such a goddamn chore
Well everyone keeps saying, “oh man he’s such a drag”
Well you’ve been hurt a thousand times but there’s no need to brag

Oh oh oh oh oh
There’s something that you really ought to know
Oh oh oh oh oh
You’re making all the people that you know feel so uncomfortable

You’re such a nice guy but you always finish last
It’s not our fucking fault that you keep living in the past
So just keep on complaining that we won’t give you a chance
Or maybe just don’t try so hard to get inside her pants

Oh oh oh oh oh
There’s something that you really ought to know
Oh oh oh oh oh
You’re making all the people that you know feel so uncomfortable
Oh oh oh oh oh
There’s something that you really ought to know
Oh oh oh oh oh
You’re making all the people that you know feel so uncomfortable
Track Name: Whisper Corner
Silence me, mouth already closed
This discussion, what’s already known
All that’s felt is understood
Done all I could
Done all I could
Yeah
Track Name: Chub Rub
Here’s the thing, summer sucks
When you got some chub
All it does is rub, rub, rub
Rub rub rub rub

We don’t skinny dip, we chunky dunk
We don’t skinny dip, we chunky dunk
We don’t skinny dip, we chunky dunk
We don’t skinny dip, we chunky dunk

Ice cream cones, fuck the spoons
Give me the tub
Chunky monkey, love love love
Love love love love

We don’t skinny dip, we chunky dunk
We don’t skinny dip, we chunky dunk
We don’t skinny dip, we chunky dunk
We don’t skinny dip, we chunky dunk

Legs are always chaffing
It looks a lot like eczema
All i want is summer fun
Just like the rest of ya
Kiddie pools and inner tubes
Break out the suntan lotion
Fuck a lazy river man
I want a lazy ocean

We don’t skinny dip, we chunky dunk
We don’t skinny dip, we chunky dunk
We don’t skinny dip, we chunky dunk
We don’t skinny dip, we chunky dunk
Track Name: Limbo
A new song, been ringing on my phone today
Changed the alarm, the old one wasn’t getting me awake
Every day is the same, on the corner i’m just beggin for some change
Start to feel normal, I felt a lot better when I felt a bit strange
Need a new routine, a new something to which i cling, oh
Shake it up just a bit, oh so scared of the trouble it will bring

But I’ve been sifting and drifting, moving along to where I belong so slowly
Why do I move so slowly?
I’m bent over backwards and I’m stuck in limbo with nothing above or below me
Nothing above or below me

Take a seat just at least, to get yourself a different point of view
I know it ain’t easy trying to deal with me when I’m trying to deal with you
I’d go insane but my sanity tends to lock me out
Practice what I preach but the words in my head don’t match with the words in my mouth
Lost in thought, I’ve been stuck with a tension that nobody ever caught
At what cost, the best things in life just can’t be bought, oh no

But I’ve been sifting and drifting, moving along to where I belong so slowly
Why do I move so slowly?
I’m bent over backwards and I’m stuck in limbo with nothing above or below me
Nothing above or below me

They tell me shoot for the moon but I’ve come to find i’m just too down to earth
If pain is gain, only realize it works when it starts to hurt
I’ve got a tolerance but no common sense about knowing when to quit.
And the logic of man says “Shut the fuck up, just deal with it”
Bones ache and break, every day it takes just a little bit more
Keep both feet on the floor, don’t wanna do the things that I’ve done before

But I’ve been sifting and drifting, moving along to where I belong so slowly
Why do I move so slowly?
I’m bent over backwards and I’m stuck in limbo with nothing above or below me
Nothing above or below me
Track Name: Manhandler
Meet me upstairs, I’ll be home soon
Talk about it there, in my room
Let the boys stare, don’t let them hear
Say it’s not fair, it’s not you

Fucked it up
So suck it up
It’s little boys
With their white noise

Up against the wall, can’t be alone
Bathroom stall, it’s overblown
Don’t they all think, you’re so free
One more drink, they’re so mean

Fucked it up
So suck it up
Lost again
Another friend

Take it out on me, please tell me why
Can’t take advice, helpless to try
Heard it all before, it’s nothing new
Can’t take it anymore...

(RANT)

Fucked it up
So suck it up
It’s little boys
With their white noise

Fucked it up
So suck it up
Lost again
Another friend
Track Name: No Hamburger (Acoustic Version)
Steel pillowcase
White crooked face
Our happy days
(You know you’re gonna miss me)

Sweet humming sound
Slumber on the ground
Can’t stop it now
(You know you’re gonna miss me)

I’ll be, I’ll be you’re sleeping beauty
I’ll be, I’ll be you’re sleeping beauty

Black sugar bound
Careless all around
I’ll put you down
(You know you’re gonna miss me)

Air in your mouth
Lung without a sound
You’re murder crowd
(You know you’re gonna miss me)

I’ll be, I’ll be you’re sleeping beauty
I’ll be, I’ll be you’re sleeping beauty

Folks, I’d like to let you know, we’re gonna have to take it slow
That pretty thing up just a head, tied up wishing to be dead
Think we’ll help her out tonight, sudden loss of appetite
Sorry folks, not tonight, not tonight, not tonight.

I’ll be, I’ll be you’re sleeping beauty
I’ll be, I’ll be you’re sleeping beauty
I’ll be, I’ll be you’re sleeping beauty
I’ll be, I’ll be you’re sleeping beauty
(You know you’re gonna miss me, You know you’re gonna miss me)
Track Name: Don't Give up the Ship
Well oh my my, the bank just called,
We ain't gonna make it through the fall
And you could hear those bastards laugh as they hung up.
To them this home is just a house,
While I play my game of cat and mouse,
Don't open the mail, best not test our luck.

Well my mom's work is killing her,
but you don't get what you don't deserve,
Get your broke ass back to work, and pay your debts with death.
And insurance claims all the damndest things,
But a wasp don't die after it stings,
Better off if you kill the queen, but you're never gonna find the nest.

The less you make the more things cost,
I'll cut you a break just to rip you off,
If it all sounds good on paper full steam ahead.
Old big brother might lend a hand,
But you better shake twice for a payment plan,
You wanna make an honest wage you're gonna have to beg
FUCK!

Well a penny saved soon goes to waste,
Ya can't dream big if the bills ain't paid,
Sit the fuck down and learn your place,
That's all they ever taught in school.
I work so hard just to be a scapegoat,
When your chickens come to roost get your ducks in a row,
You're gonna go broke if you keep up to code, but ya know thems is the rules.

Well I purge it all and I keep it clean,
I'm stuck in the middle of the in between,
Roll up your sleeves, tighten your grip, but just don't give up the ship!
