Track Name: Let's Do A Somersault!
LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF
SOMETIMES I DO SOMERSAULTS
SOMETIMES I SPLIT UP WITH MY GIRLFRIEND
BUT IT’S ALL HER FAULT
SHE SAYS THAT I’M NOT NORMAL
AND I’M NOT THE BIG ONE
BUT I NEVER WANTED BE ONE
ONE OF THOSE BIG ONES

I’M GETTING HIGHER & HIGHER
BUT I DON’T TAKE ANY DRUGS
NOW I GIVE YOU THIS FLOWER
BECAUSE THAT MAGIC HAS GONE

LET ME INTRODUCE MY GIRLFRIEND
SHE ISN’T THE BIG ONE FOR ME EITHER
I DON’T HAVE ANY PICTURE OF HER
BUT WHO CARES FOR THINGS LIKE THESE
SHE TALKS A LOT AND IT MAKES NO SENSE
I PRETEND THAT I UNDERSTAND
SOMETIMES SHE WANTS SOMETHING
BUT I HAVE TO MAKE MY STAND

WE’RE PLAYING LOUDER & LOUDER
BUT WE DON’T HAVE ANY AMPS
I WROTE THIS SONG FOR MY FUNERAL
SO LET’S PLAY IT UNTIL THE END
Track Name: Sick Of Myself
FALLING OUT OF LOVE DOESN’T MEAN I’M GROWING UP
FALLING OUT OF LOVE DOENS’T MEAN I’M GROWING UP

DO YOU KNOW THAT I SPENT MY WHOLE DAY WALKING IN A PARK
KIDS WERE PLAYING AROUND ME AND I WANTED TO TAKE PART
DO YOU KNOW THAT I SPENT MY WHOLE LIFE TRYING TO PRETEND
THAT NOBODY CAN BREAK MY HEART CAUSE IT’S ALREADY BROKEN

I MADE A SMALL BOY CRY YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN HIS WEARY EYES
I MADE A SMALL BOY CRY
I MADE A SMALL BOY CRY I TOLD HIM SOMETHING ABOUT LOVE
HE COULDN’T DRY HIS EYES

DO YOU KNOW THAT I CAN’T STAND MY FEELINGS ANYMORE
I’M PRETTY SURE THAT LOVE MAS MADE FOR ONLY LITTLE BOYS
DO YOU KNOW THAT I SPENT MY WHOLE LIFE TRYING TO PRETEND
THAT NOBODY CAN BREAK MY HEART CAUSE IT’S ALREADY BROKEN

I MADE A SMALL BOY CRY
I’M SICK OF MYSELF
Track Name: The Music Died In 1999
I DON’T WANNA GO OUT WITH YOU TONIGHT
I’M SO BORED WITH THOSE PARTIES IN TOWN
I’M LISTENING TO MORPHINE ALL DAY LONG
PLEASE MARK SANDMAN, TELL ME WHAT WENT WRONG

EVERYONE WHO’S EVER ASKED ME WHY
THAT THE MUSIC DIED IN 1999
I HAVE TO TELL YOU I KNOW I’M OUTTA TIME
BUT THE MUSIC DIED IN 1999

I KNOW I WAS ONLY 9 YEARS OLD
BUT THESE NEW SONGS, THEY JUST LEAVE ME COLD
I’M LISTENING TO THE BAND CALLED ’TREAT HER RIGHT’
I OPEN UP A BEER AND TURN OFF THE LIGHTS
Track Name: They All Went To The USA
SOMEBODY TELL ME
WHERE MY FRIENDS HAVE GONE
I REALLY MISS THEM
AND IT GETS HARDER TO GO ON

THEY LEFT A NOTE FOR ME
"WE SAIL ACROSS THE SEA
IN SEARCH OF A BETTER LIFE
IN SEARCH OF A BETTER LIFE"

THEY ALL WENT TO THE USA

I’M OVER TWENTY
AND HAVE TO CHOOSE A WAY
THESE ARE HARD TIMES
AND I’M AT HALFWAY

I KNOW THEY BETRAYED ME
COS THEY SAILED ACROSS THE SEA
TO THE LAND OF PALM TREES
TO SET THEMSELVES FREE

THEY ALL WENT TO THE USA
Track Name: Teenage Anger Management
LEAVING YOUR DIRT IN A HOLE
AND YOU’RE NEVER LOOKING BACK
WHERE YOU’RE REALLY FROM
I WAS ONCE LIKE YOU ARE NOW
IN A MONKEY TOWN IN A MONKEY TOWN

FROM THE START TO THE END
TEENAGE ANGER MANAGEMENT

YOU’RE FEELING SORRY FOR BEING ALIVE
AND YOU WANNA ESCAPE FROM YOUR SOUL
I GUESS I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKIN’ ABOUT
(I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU DO)
COMITTING SUICIDE

ALLYOUR NAIVE THOUGHTS
AND YOUR STUPID BOOKS
WILL LEAD YOU TO THE WRONG WAY
BUT DO I REALLY CARE?
I’M 30 SOMETHING AND I’M DEAD INSIDE
FROM THE START TO THE END
TEENAGE ANGER MANAGEMENT

YOU’RE FEELING SORRY FOR BEING ALIVE
AND YOU WANNA ESCAPE FROM YOUR SOUL
I GUEES I KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKIN’ ABOUT
(I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU DO)
COMITTING SUICIDE
Track Name: With The Beatles
SHE WAS SEVEN AND I WAS EIGHT
I CLEARLY REMEMBER OH THAT DAY
LISTENING TO THE BEATLES
FROM FIVE TO EIGHT

SHE WAS SEVEN AND I WAS EIGHT
I WAS DREAMING MY DAYS AWAY
FROM A TO B, FROM B TO A
OH SWEET DAY

WITH THE BEATLES ON OUR SIDE

DO YOU REMEMBER THE GOOD OLD DAYS
AND DO YOU REMEMBER THE MORNING TIDE
DO YOU REMEMBER THE SILLY LOVE SONGS
DO YOU REMEMBER THE VERY FIRST TIME

OH SWEET DAYS
THEY’RE NOT THE SAME
Track Name: Hands Off The Bomb
PEACE SIGNS ARE FOR STUPID GIRLS
ON PARADE IN BOB MARLEY SHIRTS
DO SOMETHING INSTEAD OF SITTING HERE
DO SOMETHING INSTEAD OF DEMONSTRATING

TAKE YOUR HANDS OFF THE BOMB
TAKE YOUR HANDS OFF THE BOMB
Track Name: I Have Misguided You
I HAVE MISGUIDED YOU
OR ONE OF US IS SIMPLY A FOOL
SORRY I HAVE MISGUIDED YOU
BUT I GUESS THAT’S WHAT I ALWAYS DO

EVERY SINGLE DAY
I FEEL SO ASHAMED
YOU KNOW YOU DON’T KNOW ME WELL
SPINNING ROUND & ROUND
IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME
TO FINALLY MAKE IT HOME

I HAVE MISGUIDED YOU
OR ONE OF US IS SIMPLY A FOOL
SORRY I HAVE MISGUIDED YOU
BUT I GUESS THAT’S WHAT I ALWAYS DO

ECHOES IN MY HEAD
THIS TIME DON’T BE SAD
NOW IT’S TIME TO SPLIT OUR WAYS
SPINNING ROUND & ROUND
IT WILL TAKE SOME TIME
TO FINALLY MAKE IT HOME
Track Name: Grandaddy
NOW YOU’VE HEARD THAT THEY’RE JUST MARRIED
AND GUESS THAT NOW YOU WANNA GO HOME
YOUR MIND WANDERS AND YOU ACT LIKE A CLOWN
BUT YOU KNOW HOW IT GOES

ON SUNDAY MORNING SOMEBODY ELSE
WILL WAKE YOU UP AND COMB YOUR HAIR
AND WHEN I’M SAD I’M SINGING A SONG
ABOUT GRANDADDY WHO WAS IN THE WAR

WHEN GRANDADDY CAME HOME FROM WAR
THEN ALL THE GIRLS AND BOYS NEXT DOOR
WAS WAITING FOR HIM AND HE NEVER LET THEM DOWN
SO TONIGHT THE SKY IS CLEAR
NOBODY CAN REPLACE HIM
BUT ONE THING’S SURE THAT HE WILL NEVER LET ME DOWN

NOW YOU’VE HEARD THAT’RE JUST MARRIED
AND YOU CAN’T HOLD BACK YOU’RE TEARS
I DON’T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THIS
BUT SHE’S NOT A BIG DEAL
Track Name: Hate Love Hate
WHY DO YOU KEEP ASKING QUESTIONS
WHY DO YOU KEEP ASKING ME
CAN’T YOU SEE I’M TIRED
I LOST MY WILL TO EAT
WAS IT JUST HATE, LOVE, HATE?

TAKE A LOOK AROUND IT’S YOU
I AM STANDING IN A QUEUE
AND I CAN’T DECIDE WHAT I SHOULD DO
RIGHT NOW

EVERYTIME YOU HURT YOURSELF
TO MAKE ME STAY AND DRIVE ME MAD
I JUST SING: HATE, LOVE, HATE
EVERYTIME I WRITE A SONG
I THINK OF YOU ALL ALONG
EVEN IF IT’S HATE LOVE HATE

I’D LIKE TO SAY THAT I’M SORRY
I’D LIKE TO SAY I’M LOST
BUT YOU’RE THE ONE WHO WOULD KNOW
THAT I’M ONLY PLAYING A ROLE
AND I WOULD SING HATE, LOVE, HATE
