Load up on guns, bring your friends It's fun to lose, and to pretend She's over bored, and self assured I know I know, A dirty word
hello, hello, hello, hello. . .hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello, hello. . .hello, hello, hello, hello
With the lights out it's less dangerous Here we are now, entertain us I feel stupid and contagious Here we are now, entertain us. A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido, Yea!
I'm worse at what I do best, and for this gift I feel blessed. I met a group that's always been And always will until the end.
And I forget, just why i taste Oh yes I guess it makes me smile I found it hard. . .Its hard to find Oh well, whatever, nevermind ----------------------------------------------------------------------- In Bloom

I don't mind, I don't mind, I don't mind, I don't mind, I don't mind If I don't have a mind

I'm so lonely and that's ok, I shaved my head, and I'm not sad And just maybe I'm to blame for all I've heard, and I'm not sure I'm so excited I can't wait to meet you there, and I dont' care I'm so horny but that's ok, my will is good

It isn't me We have some seed Let me clip Your dirty wings Let me take a ride Don't hurt yourself I want some help To please myself I've got some rope You have been told I promise you I've been true Let me take a ride Don't hurt yourself I want some help To please myself
Polly wants a cracker Maybe she would like more food She asks me to untie her A chase would be nice for a few

Polly says her back hurts And she's just as bored as me She caught me off my guard It amazes me, the will of instinct ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Territorial Pissings
(E bar chords on frets 5, 13 and 10)
A5 F5 D5 A5 F5 D5 When I was an alien, cultures weren't opinions.
A5 F5 D5 Gotta find a way, to find a way, I'd better wait.
Never met a wise man, if so it's a woman

Just because you're paranoid, don't mean they're not after you ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Drain You
A C# F# B A C# F# B One baby to another said I'm lucky to have met you... I don't care what you think unless it is about me It is now my responsibility to completely drain you A travel through a tube and end up in your infection
D B Chew your meat for you pass it back and forth In a passionate kiss, from my mouth to yours
A5 G5 F#5 because I like you.
With eyes so dialted I've become your pupil You've taught me everything with a poison apple The water is so yellow, I'm a healthy student Indebted and so grateful. Vacuum out the fluids.
B You're my vitamins A5 G5 F#sus4 F#5 because I like you
----------------------------------------------------------------------- Lounge Act
Truth covered in security I can't let you smother me I'd like to but it wouldn't work Trading off and taking turns I don't regret a thing
I've got this friend, you see Who makes me feel And I wanted more Than I could steal I'll arrest myself And wear a shield I'll go out of my way To prove I still Smell her on you
Don't, tell me what I wanna hear Afraid of never knowning fear Experience anything yoy need I'll keep fighting jealousy Until it's fucking gone
I've got this friend, you see Who makes me feel And I wanted more Than I could steal I'll arrest myself And wear a shield I'll go out of my way To prove I still Smell her on you
Truth covered in security I can't let you smother me I'd like to but it wouldn't work Trading off and taking turns I don't regret a thing
I've got this friend, you see Who makes me feel And I wanted more Than I could steal I'll arrest myself And wear a shield I'll go out of my way To make you a deal We've make a pact To learn from who Ever we want Without new rules We'll share what's lost and what we grew They'll go out of their way To prove they still Smell her on you They still, smell her on you Smell her on you
----------------------------------------------------------------------- Stay Away
Monkey See, monkey do I'd rather be deal than cool Every line ends in rhyme Less is more, love is blind
Stay, stay away
Give an inch, take a smile Fashion shits, fashion stile Throw it out and keep it in Have to have poison skin
I don't know why I don't know why
----------------------------------------------------------------------- On A Plain
I'll start this off Without any words I got so high that I scratched 'til I bled
Love myself Better than you I know it's wrong So what should I do?
The finest day That I ever had Was when I learned To cry on command
I'm on a plain I can't complain I'm on a plain
My mother died Every night It's safe to say Don't quote me on that
The black sheep got Blackmailed again Forgot to put On the zip code
Somewhere I have heard this before In a dream my memory has stored As defense I'm neutered and spayed What the hell am I trying to say?
It is now time To make it unclear To write off lines That don't make a sense
One more special Message to go And then I'm done And I can go home
----------------------------------------------------------------------- Something in the Way

Underneath the bridge The tarp has sprung a leak And the animals I've trapped Have all become my pets And I'm living off of grass And the drippings from the ceiling But it's ok to eat fish Cause they haven't any feelings
e|--------------------------------------| B|-------------------------3-3----3-3---| G|-------------------------2-2----2-2---| B|---4-----4-4----4-4-0----0-0----0-0---| A|---4-----4-4----4-4-0----0-0----0-0---| E|---4-----4-4----4-4-0-----------------|
Something in the way, Mmmm... Something in the way, yeah, Mmmm...
