You could cut through the tension with a plastic knife If they don't have you comatose from trying to take their side All tied up in broken strings of hate, revenge and snide You fate is sealed, you fought and lost I'm gonna shut you down in Riverside This is what you get This is what you need This is what you asked for This is how it's gonna be I know you think I should feel sorry But I'm just not sorry about this I can't help ignoring Your stories are boring No touring, I'm starting to drift You know I think we could do better But you're just not sorry about this I can't help ignoring The anger I'm storing How'd you like your face to meet my fist? You won't catch my attention with your plastic life You stab me right into my back, then expect me to comply Because you said that And then you fucked off And then you came back And it was all wrong This is what you get This is what you need This is what you asked for This is how it's gonna be I know you think I should feel sorry But I'm just not sorry about this I can't help ignoring Your stories are boring No touring, I'm starting to drift You know I think we could do better But you're just not sorry about this I can't help ignoring The anger I'm storing How'd you like your face to meet my fist? Face! Meets! Fist!

Let me show you what it feels like To be out on your own again Everything was alright When I could say you were a friend But somewhere deep inside your soul I knew something wasn't right Why should I stick around this cursèd home And let my heart pay the price? My knack for sympathy's not Working anymore I must have used it up But I'm not quite sure what for And when your friends are gone You won't know what to do Payback's a bitch, you'll find When it all comes back to you All these walls are caked with dust And this hallway feels so empty I guess it doesn't seem like much But this is what you left me Not a bitter word went left unsaid No sedative for the pain The nightmare's over, I had to end it 'Cause this is you when chaos reigns My knack for sympathy's not Working anymore I must have used it up But I'm not quite sure what for And when your friends are gone You won't know what to do Payback's a bitch, you'll find When it all comes back to you (Breaking news out of Anaheim: People can be cruel, heartless bastards. You could be one of them. Find out more tonight at 11.) Phone shaking by my side Pushing me to face the light Sang every song to soothe They became all about you I laughed to laugh as you did Smiled to believe that they were wrong Supposed to stay together We were supposed to stay together, whoa Let's raise a toast to what could have been And hold a wake for disregard A vigil for the thoughtless minded Grim dirges with no notes nor bars No remnants of your final goodbye Your lies all left extinct Now you're gone and we're left standing While we chant three cheers for anything My knack for sympathy's not Working anymore I must have used it up But I'm not quite sure what for And when your friends are gone You won't know what to do Payback's a bitch, you'll find When it all comes back to you

Oh my God, well, it's happened again I've already seen how this story ends Most other folks would just let it all pass But in twenty-six minutes I'll be on my sixth glass I sit here getting wasted The grim reaper's out there waiting But a little red devil's already possessed my mind I've got no hope for freedom Made best friends with all my demons And they prefer I spend my time inside (yeah, yeah, yeah) Surprise, surprise! Woke up late again But I've got no job and I've got no friends The rich ain't happy and the sad get sadder So if I sit here getting drunk Does it really even matter? I sit here getting wasted The grim reaper's out there waiting But a little red devil's already possessed my mind I've got no hope for freedom Made best friends with all my demons You know what, man? I'll take a chance outside! (Let's talk it on out) We're looking good, we're feeling fine I think I'll take you out tonight Ghost Town, boomtown Going to the show I've got my coat, I've got my hat I'll wait outside your London flat Likkle old time reggae on my red radio Hey, little rude girl Where you going? Hey, little rude girl Don't you know the music brings this town to life? Hey, pretty rude girl Are you listening? Hey, pretty rude girl Don't you know that you brought me back to life? So shake your rump to this mighty beat I think I killed my losing streak Good luck is on my side and that's alright I said, Hey, Miss Katella I just wanna be your fella We can take the 50 bus to the party downtown You know her love is lethal But deep down she is an angel I can't get enough of that Orange County sound Can't get enough of that Orange County sound Hey, little rude girl Where you going? Hey, little rude girl Don't you know the music brings this town to life? Hey, pretty rude girl Are you listening? Hey, pretty rude girl Don't you know that you brought me back to life?

I'm more or less insane Moreso than a month ago I'm chasing what's not really there I'm catching frowns and cold blank stares, I saw Conscience on sale, a half-price discount Can you spare a dime, it still costs too much for me I'm okay I'm just fine I won't do anything I might regret this time And don't say She's your valentine "'Cause opinions change," sincerely say the undersigned So let's tear down unfriendly confines Of city limits and county lines Erase these walls and borders Our from each and every corner, I can Can we start over? Nice to meet you I like your shoes, where did you get them? I'm okay I'm just fine I won't do anything I might regret this time And don't say She's your valentine "'Cause opinions change," sincerely say the undersigned Don't you believe me? I'm trying my best To work this all out To catch myself and get back up when I fall Down, down, down I know you've got my back Catch yourself, kid, and get back up 'Cause you never know where you might wind up, yeah Down, down, down You got so far off track Know yourself, kid, and get back up 'Cause you never know where you might wind up, yeah I'm okay I'm just fine I won't do anything I might regret this time And don't say She's your valentine "'Cause opinions change," sincerely say the undersigned Don't you believe me? Let's tear down unfriendly confines of city limits and county lines

From suburban homes in RSM To faithlessness and a punk rock band I didn't think it'd all go by so fast Community service and late night shows I'm not sure where my time goes I didn't think it'd all go by so fast It goes by so fast So stay if you want Or you can just go My high self esteem's hit an all time low It seems once again That I've lost a friend My mind's in the red Here's what I said Where has everybody gone? They're missing out on all my songs I think I'm doing something wrong There's no one left to sing along Somewhere along the way I lost it, yeah 'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast I used to be first but now I'm last And I used to think that I had some class One second here, now it's all in the past 'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast If I was out there, I know I would not last And I used to think that I had some class One second here, now it's all in the past So hand me a pen I'll write down these words Put my thoughts on paper so you can be sure If it happens again You won't lose a friend With means to your ends Here's what I said Where has everybody gone? They're missing out on all my songs I think I'm doing something wrong There's no one left to sing along Maybe that's the way I want it, yeah yeah yeah 'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast I used to be first but now I'm last And I used to think that I had some class One second here, now it's all in the past 'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast If I was out there, I know I would not last And I used to think that I had some class One second here, now it's all in the past So look at me now What do you see? I'm everything I want to be Did I fail? Did I succeed? I didn't turn out perfectly I fought the bullshit I fought the smears I wrote these songs for my own ears That ticking clock's what I most fear We're out of time I'm sorry dear 'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast I used to be first but now I'm last And I used to think that I had some class One second here, now it's all in the past 'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast If I was out there, I know I would not last And I used to think that I had some class One second here, now it's all in the past 'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast I used to be first but now I'm last (I'm sorry, dear) And I used to think that I had some class One second here, now it's all in the past (I'm sorry, dear) 'Cause I didn't think it'd go by so fast If I was out there, I know I would not last (I'm sorry, dear) And I used to think that I had some class One second here, I'm sorry, dear
