Pretty Song for the Dead – (Formerly Glen Smashed In Buffalo) As time grinds on this hectic pace… it seizes motivation, Cramps the brain, weathers face… ages with frustration Down to the wire, Time is dyer, With no time to hit pause — To taste the fruits of memory, Take a second for applause. When I die play a pretty song for me One that’s gonna makes your eyes want to bleed With misery, pain and heart-breaking sorrow To remind you with me there’s no tomorrow When my stories said a done — nothing left upon the page, All soaked up or sponged dry – release me from this cage. Lifetime ago, Only this to show I was on a mission To smash this heartfelt legacy And ruin with precision. If you ever needed nothing — Then boy I’m here for you But most of you still want something - A slice of skin or two Worst part is you’ll watch me die Boasting ownership for all to see Spare the tears and the lie Just play a pretty song for me.

We’re used to playing for nobody, so won’t you all sing along We’re used to playing for nobody, so won’t you all sing along We’re used to playing for no one, so won’t you all sing along Use your mouth, use your lips, use that fuckin’ tongue. We’re used to playing for no one, so won’t you all sing along Verses are easy, chorus is sweet, the song isn’t very long … here we go Whoa oh oh ooooh ooooh Won’t you all sing along We’re used to playing for no one, so won’t you all sing along Pump your fist, Start to scream, right from your pair of lungs. We’re used to playing for no one, so won’t you all sing along Give some effort, And try real hard, let’s end this fuckin’ strong … everybody Whoa oh oh ooooh ooooh Won’t you all sing along

I’m super unoriginal. Defeated by my art. Always fuckin’ miserable, And fallin' apart. As bad as it seems Screaming for clout. Where would you be When it all runs out Give it up now; Cut it up clean. Wasting my life, For a god damn scene. Screaming for attention Sure you don’t care. Light myself on fire You just stand and stare stand and stare stand and stare stand and stare stand and stare (Just Monty and Sean) A whole world of tears Couldn’t douse out these flames Save them for some one Who wants to feel pain All said and done It was nothing to see Board it all up now And I’ll leave the key Sued for 9 million. A guy that can’t walk. 8 years later, I can finally talk. Gong show of life Had my doubts. I did it all for them Lost it on the route. No one remembers. The cash I blew for you. Time will wash away, A black that wasn’t new Now that it’s all over Wasn’t show or tell. your fun night… Was my personal hell Was my hell Was my hell Was my hell Was my hell - (Just Monty and Sean) A whole world of tears Could not douse out these flames Save them for some one Who wants to feel pain All said and done It was nothing to see Board it all up now And I’ll leave the key

You have to be right and it kind of sucks That you feel the need to always one up The stories you tell, desperation it screams Your want for acceptance is rather extreme This situation is destined to fail Like writing a song in fucking braille. You realize it’s stupid and dumb When you are singing from the tip of your thumb I’d rather you have all your envy Than one single ounce of my god damn pity For you, your jealousy seeps from your pours But all of that shit should be locked up indoors Solo breakdown party time This situation is destined to fail Like writing a song in fucking braille. You realize it’s stupid and dumb When you’re singing from the tip of your thumb

Frugal Man 04:16
You’re buried inside an office A coffin where you could only be A boss, a parent, a working stiff Failing for all the world to see You wish all of it was different But you can never find the time So you sink, sink and sink some more As everything falls behind It all builds up then comes right down Deflection is your favourite game Might as well look in the mirror You only have yourself to blame Friends like me could offer As if you’d ever take advice Sad to see you not get better Drowning to your own device The solution seems obvious At least, I believe it’s true Maybe give it all up now I know perfect's not for you Perhaps tomorrow is different Because today sure is the same It must be hard to lead Repeating the same steps you came An abundance of distractions Keep you from being truly strong If you ever had your own idea We all know it would be wrong When your day is over Do you weep to yourself in shame? The tears of disappointment build as they flood your tarnished name Only half your life has passed by But it feels like it’s almost done Sooner than later it’s over And then what the fuck have you won The solution seems obvious At least, I believe it’s true Maybe give it all up now I know perfect's not for you

First imprisoned… Last Impression Come on baby… Keep me guessin’ // Once Divided… and one sided A broken heart is all you provided I never wanted to… feel… you I never wanted to… see… you I never wanted to… tell… you I never wanted to… love… you It’s crazy baby, but it makes no sense To love someone who builds a fence… around your heart, and stacked so high I Can’t get in … (don’t try) Full of hope… or full of shit Throw it up, see what sticks The truth is heals… the truth it hurts Not to sure what’s fuckin’ worse I never wanted to… feel… you I never wanted to… see… you I never wanted to… tell… you I never wanted to… love… you It’s crazy baby, but it makes no sense To love someone who builds a fence… around your heart, and stacked so high I Can’t get in … (don’t try) X 4 It’s crazy baby, but it makes no sense To love someone who builds a fence… around your heart, and stacked so high I Can’t get in … (don’t try) X4

Real life hits like a wrecking ball Out of nowhere ready to fall for my shit; feels so fake Falling for it, burnt at the stake Right back to you… I start to crawl Drag my feet, wish I could stall Guess it’s time to start confessing regardless of lack of discretion All My Spots are Sweet All My Spots are swee-eat You can surely see That all my spots are sweet Always wanted me to admit sins not done, they were full of it The lies, heart break, the tilt-a-whirl just hold me now; be my world Won't have you… any other way In our lives, I want us to stay Head over feet, it’s no surprise that you finally realized All My Spots are Sweet All My Spots are swee-eat You can surely see That all my spots are sweet When the rumour mill is churning careful what you take A fabled poisoned warning Could really seal your fate

I don’t believe in Anime Or the stupid things you see Like stringing Christmas lights on trees Or breathing in an Ocean Breeze I don’t believe that’s why you’re late Or love is stronger than hate Like predetermined bogus fate Or Frosted Flakes are really great // Don’t believe this is your stance Or giving you a second chance Like dummies who wants romance Or asking for cash advance Don’t believe it’s all or nothing Or honest adds up to something Like fessing up to less your sting Or giving you a wedding ring When I was young I wanted to believe. Maybe one day the thing’s you said were true But now I’m aware this was not the case And that’s what I call a fucking waste And that’s what I call a fucking waste And that’s what I call a fucking waste I don’t believe in Jesus Christ Or tea is better when it’s iced Like blowing luck upon your dice Or taking in a poltergeist I don’t believe in paying rent Or camping with just a tent Like saying what you really meant Or giving up on arguments Don’t believe in bathtub gin Or taking one on the chin Like pulling off a comeback win Or sticking needles in your skin Don’t believe in doing coke Or 9-11 was a hoax Like buying drinks when you’re broke Or kicking in someone’s spokes

It happened so fast He didn't have time to think Or maybe he had too much a bit too much to drink – (whoa ohh ohhh) When he went riding off into the bright sunshine It turned out to be the lights of a car Can somebody help me please Scrape this man up off the road Can somebody help me please I cannot do it on my own As the police were scraping him off the fender A friend of his said that he had been on a bender - (whoa ohh ohhh) and that he had a huge fight Yeah, he had a fight with his wife Then he got pissed off Then rode off on his bike He was drunk He was drunk on a bike Can somebody help me please Scrape this man up off the road Can somebody help me please I cannot do it on my own

The Art of Asking is running rampant With nothing in return Maybe I’ll get to you in a second I only have cred to burn You know a guy, can you let me fly In this show for free? How about I stop what I’m doing Make sure to fill your needs Toy Cowboys yelling howdy With insincere twang Disinterested sarcasm Is clearly not your slang This Town Sucks This Town Suuccckkksss This Town Sucks This Town Suuccckkksss Can you pay to play or promote my show? You’re a real lifesaver Oh man I’d love to gig for nothing especially a fundraiser I know she’s already playing this week, But my sister wants to open That is such a great idea, are words to never be spoken Toy Cowboys yelling howdy With insincere twang Disinterested sarcasm Is clearly not your slang This Town Sucks This Town Suuccckkksss This Town Sucks This Town Suuccckkksss This Town Sucks so much This Town Sucks so much This Town Sucks so much This Town Sucks so much This Town Sucks This Town Suuccckkksss This Town Sucks This Town Suuccckkksss

Never changed The time we spent But hopefully I made a dent // Spilling out my two cents You were yelling that I made no sense Like always and again You never took my god damn stain Bleached it out From your brain Thinking I’m so god damn lame You gave me an always and forever – (Forever Fades Away) I wish I picked never ever never – (I’ll Just Smile and Wave) You gave me an always and forever – (Forever Fades Away) Here I thought I was more clever Then to fall for this… Then To Fall For This Shit Serve me with that blank stare Made me rip out my god damn hair But then it was Was never fair To ever once ask you to care Heads you win tails I lose It was the path that I had to choose Said goodbye Made me the stooge Sailed away leaving me to lose You gave me an always and forever – (Forever Fades Away) I wish I picked never ever never – (I’ll Just Smile and Wave) You gave me an always and forever – (Forever Fades Away) Here I thought I was more clever Then to fall for this… Then to fall for this… Then to fall for this… Then To Fall For This Shit Fall for this Shit Fall for this Shit Fall for this Shit
