There’s a monkey in my kitchen and he’s throwing shit at me I got a rash that won’t stop itchin and it’s burning when I pee The rent is due I’m sniffing glue but I just can’t stop missing you In spite of the rotten things that you have done to me There’s bats up in my belfry and there’s eels in my pants The front lawn is on fire and the butter’s full of ants They’re banging on my door and there’s devils in the floor Can’t take it anymore I wish that you’d come back to me A thousand fucking reasons that I’d like to see you dead A thousand fucking things that I still wish I’d never said A thousand dirty motherfuckers you fucked our bed But when it’s said and done you’re still the only girl for me There’s a vortex in my cortex my medulla is on fire I sewed my broken heart up with some old piano wire I’m bleeding out of places that I never knew I had I hated you so much I never thought I could be missing you so bad I’ve been gargling with drano I’ve been eating broken glass If I saw you in the crosswalk I would stomp down on the gas There’s a body in the crawlspace there’s a monster in the hall And that monkey in the kitchen he’s been laughing through it all I’ve been honing up my razor while I sing your favorite song I’ve been picturing your face with the pretty skin all gone I’ve been scratching I’ve been itching while remembering your bitching For the life of me I don’t know why I’m sorry that you’re gone The giggles of a clown the seem to echo in my head I’m leaving foot prints all around they’re sticky and they’re red There’s fingers in the sink and my eyes are turning pink And all that I can think is how I wish that you’d stay dead My brain is spinning like a top inside it’s goddamn bowl I gotta tell you loving you sure took it’s fucking toll So someone tell the devil make an offer on my soul The only thing I’m sure of is I don’t need it no more

When I saw Haley’s Comet parked outside the bar I kneeled down to vomit right there by her car It felt like life had walked up kicked me in the balls Felt like I would die right then and there Then I saw Haley kissing that douche bag in the sweater I knew I had to try, try hard to forget her Kneeling in my puke I felt so goddamn small It seemed that I was broke beyond repair Then that sweater douche bag saw me grabbed me by the scruff I wiped the spittle from my chin I said you ain’t so tough He said I’ll kick your stalker ass he threw me ‘gainst the wall As he beat me all that Haley did was stare stop He beat me up he beat me down he beat me like a drum He beat me more than silly, he beat me stupid dumb And when he finished my beating he let my body fall And all that I had left was my despair Then they got in Haley’s Comet and my true love drove away I was soaked in blood and vomit in the gravel where I lay It felt like life had walked up and kicked me in the balls It felt like I could die right then and there

Was that you standing in that doorway hid from view Hiding in the shadows still I knew Oh I knew There was a time I would have called to you There was a time I would’ve called your name When you were mine there was a time Way back when way back then a long long time ago The girl I knew is gone that’s all I know all I know All I know We play our games we roll the dice and then we take our turn We play with fire till somebody gets burned And all we learn Is life ain’t fair We smile and pretend that we don’t care We smile and pretend that we’re OK And we walk away Was that you standing in that doorway hid from view What happened to the girl that I once knew I once knew What did they do to you

A Place 04:54
I’ve gotta find a nice quiet place A place where I can hang around Where nobody will cut me down A place where I can right all my wrongs I’ve gotta find a nice quiet place A place that they will never find ‘cause I think I’m gonna lose my mind I think I’ve been around here to long I’ve gotta find a place where I can be alone I’ve gotta find a place where I can rest my bones I’ve gotta find a place a place where there ain’t nothin Maybe I can find something/ a place where I can be atone I’ve gotta find a spot in the woods Where nobody will bother me I place where I don’t gotta be Where I don’t gotta be nobody’s fool I gotta find a place far away Far away from all this pain Far away from inside this brain It’s way too crowded in here I’ve gotta find a place where I don’t answer to nobody Where nobody tells me/ tells me what I’m s’posed to do I’ve gotta find a place a place where it’s OK to me lonely A place where I can be alone,..alone to lick my wounds I’ve gotta find a nice quiet place A place where I can hang around Where nobody will cut me down A place where I can right all my wrongs I’ve gotta find a nice sturdy limb One that’s gonna hold my weight Strong enough to hold all this hate That I’ve been bottling up for so long

Box Of Junk 05:07
Yesterday I found a picture of you in a box of junk that I was going through You were smiling but you looked a little sad The sky was gray but then again that’s the kind of day we always had On the back you wrote I hope this lasts forever dear I hope this never ends Hope’s the only thing we ever had But hope is just a waste of time when love is gone and everything turns black I pressed that picture to my lips then I lit a match and put it to the flame You were burning but you did not seem to care The black smoke curled up to the ceiling and just like that you were no longer there That box of junk was nothing but a box of demons here to torture me Burning cross the floor and up the walls Burning up what’s left of you and me finally setting my soul free

I knew that this would end some day The day would come you’d go away I knew we wouldn’t last forever But I thought we’d have more time I knew that you would leave someday But I wasn’t counting on today I guess I never saw it coming I guess love is really blind I knew you’d find somebody new Just didn’t know what I would do Now that it’s over and it’s done I hope the love you found is true But you and I are not the same We see the world through different eyes I’ll love you longer than forever But tonight’s the last night that I’m gonna cry...over you Crying over you What a thing to do Crazy thing to do... I knew that this would end some day If I said don’t go would you stay Odds are we’d crash and burn again I guess we’re better off this way

Down by the edge of the water That’s where I go to remember We used to swim here in the summer We used to skate here in the winter Today the water’s smooth as glass It’s shining like a big old mirror Think of the time that has passed I close my eyes and I can hear her Is that her voice I hear singing Singing to me from way down under That pretty voice I remember That pretty girl gone forever Most times I don’t think about her ‘cept when I’m down here by the water Sometimes I cry like a baby Sometimes I curse her fucking memory One night she left me forever One night she left me all alone That night she went into the water That night she never made it home We had a fight I remember She slammed the door I should’ve stopped her She took a ride with a stranger And then we found her three days later

I was just sitting drinking and thinking Thinking about the time when you were still mine A long long time ago before you had to go Before I lost my mind I was just sitting drinking thinking About how life has changed How life became so strange How everything that was will never be again How everything is gone I was just sitting drinking and thinking Thinking about your face remembering the place The place we used to go where we could be alone Back when we were in love I was just sitting drinking and thinking Thinking about your eyes the lies that they disquise The secrets they concealed that never were revealed The ones you kept from me I was just sitting drinking and thinking Thinking about your pleas down there on your knees On our anniversary begging me for mercy But mercy never came

I walk through life with a bag of lies I dole them out like candy on Halloween I Take your hearts and I rob your smiles I put them in a box and I keep them under lock and key I’m not capable of giving anything that’s real I’m not capable no I do not feel Anything I’ll say anything no matter what it takes To get what I want then I’m moving on My heart is cold like a den of snakes You can’t recognize the Devil until he’s gone I’m not capable of giving anything that’s real I’m not capable no I do not feel Anything So hope that you don’t make the same mistake And hope that you don’t let me come and take And hope that you see through all my dirty little charms And hope you walk away ‘fore your heart breaks And hope that you don’t fall in love with me I walk through life with my bag of lies I’ve got one in here tailor made for you I’ll make you feel like you’re something special When all you are to me is something new

Found with your arms folded cross your chest Someone left you like that someone left you like that For a long time now your life has been a mess No one made it like that no one made it like that You made the choice to dance with the devil on your own Not saying it was wrong not saying it was wrong You went out with a whimper not a bang Not the way you would choose not the way you would choose You always loved old Thunders when he sang I was born just to lose I was born just to lose You made the choice to dance with the devil on your own Not saying it was wrong not saying it was wrong But my friend you were mistaken when you thought you were alone There’s plenty folks around still miss you now you’re gone Long time ago you stepped off of the cliff And you flew like a bird yeah you flew like a bird Now people wonder why and say what if They had listened and heard they had listened and heard You made the choice to dance with the devil on your own Not saying it was wrong But I’m sorry that you’re gone The people that were with you when you died Wonder if they were friends wonder if they were friends I hope that you had someone by your side When you came to an end when you came to your end You made the choice to dance with the devil on your own And now you’re gone So I’ll raise a glass won’t cry for you again You would want it that way you would want it that way Hope you finally found some peace my friend We’ll meet again one of these days meet again one of these days ‘cause I made that choice to dance with the devil on my own

Once again it’s raining can barely see the road Fell my energy draining feels like my heart might implode Everything Is Grey Everything is grey All the colors in my life are gone I think I hear you calling but it’s only the wind Feel the temperature falling feel like a stranger in this skin Everything Is Grey Everything is grey All the colors in my life are gone I wanna feel the sun shining on my face I wanna have a little fun I wanna get just one more little taste But Everything Is Grey Everything is grey All the colors in my life are gone I think I wanna run but I don’t know where It feels like my lungs are filled with something heavier than air Everything Is Grey Everything is grey All the colors in my life are gone I think I wanna see you I think I wanna say I think I wanna tell you that I’m happy you went away Everything Is Grey Everything is grey All the colors in my life are gone But you lie there still underneath that dirt First you broke my will than you showed me how much love can hurt Everything Is Grey Everything is grey All the colors in my life are gone I’d like to wipe that smile off your boney face I’d like to spit this bile that I’m forever damned to taste Everything Is Grey Everything is grey All the colors in my life are gone Still the rain keeps falling irrigates my sins And my guilt keeps growing in the end the Devil always wins Everything Is Grey Everything is grey....

The Owl 04:24
My hair is wet and sticky around the hole where the truth went in And now my tears are blood But now I finally remember what the owl told me that night Everything.... He said Hey You/ I said who me? he said I’m gonna show you every thing that you need to see He said listen up kid listen to me Just shut your mouth and listen I’m gonna set you free He said you’ve spent your foolish days Living in a dream world stumblin round in a drunken haze But now I’m here to show you the way When you need it you’ll remember all I’m telling you today I said listen man I just wanna sleep How the hell did I get out in these woods how the Hell did I get so deep He flapped his wings and he spun his head And when it came back round the other side this is what he said He told me everything made it so clear When I woke up in the morning I grabbed myself a beer But I forgot all that he said I learned the secrets of the universe from an owl on my head All of them secrets where did they go I went back out in the woods and I stumbled through the snow But he was gone that bird had flown Just a stupid drunkard sitting in the forest all alone He said Hey you I said who me He said put the barrel to your temple now you’re gonna count to three Here comes the truth it’s yours for free It was always right in front of you but you just couldn’t see He winked his eye said here we go Gonna tell you everything all you ever need to know He flapped his wings and spun his head And when it came back round I did exactly what the owl said
