This is not just a song This is not just a song These days, you barely even say my name Like you don't really feel the same I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song) (x4) These nights I threw every piece into a fire Wondering where this cake is It feels like we're out of beta And it's only breaking my folding chair 'Cause if my feet are buried in the sand means being alone And never knowing when there's a breeze Then I guess I'm better off facing time again in Riker's Island But I can't move on 'Cause that means slipping on my red dress, putting on my makeup Slipping on my red dress, putting on my makeup Instead I keep running, keep running, I keep running to Paris 'Cause I keep forgetting, forgetting our time in Paris So I keep on coming, keep coming I keep coming back back back back These days, you barely even say my name Like you don't really feel the same I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song) (x4) My friends say "Like my status if you're a pimp! And stop crying like a baby!" They tell me that I'm out of my mouthwash But I know that what we both share is shit on your head And I've been willing to go streaking in the park with pink flamingos in the pool 'Cause if being with you means being screwed And never knowing when you're screwed Then I guess I'm better off screwed But I can't move on 'Cause that means chasing me all over town Chasing me all over town Instead I keep running, keep running, I keep running to heaven 'Cause I keep forgetting, forgetting I've already been to heaven So I keep on coming, keep coming I keep coming back back back back These days, you barely even say my name Like you don't really feel the same I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song) (x4) Drop it Yo, Jimmy Neutron was just nineteen When he created a strange machine His parents were dead, he lived in Paris Yeah, he lived in Paris I guess you could say it was kind of crazy I guess you could say it was kind of cra-cra-crazy But I left gum in my mouth overnight, yeah I left gum in my mouth overnight But I left gum in my mouth overnight, yeah I left gum in my mouth overnight Back (x16) These days, you barely even say my name Like you don't really feel the same I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song) (x4)

National anthem while I am standing Over your body, hold you like a python And you can't keep your hands off Me or your pants on See what you've done to me King of Chevron (x3) On occasion, I’ve had the time to think Of life and love in someone else’s skin There is a girl, she lives down the street And everything she does, she does for him She whispers his name as she wanders down the street And wonders out loud whether he will answer back She can count the times on a hand with no digits And the love that she wastes, she can put it on a plaque National anthem National anthem National anthem Do you think I'm pretty? National anthem while I am standing Over your body, hold you like a python And you can't keep your hands off Me or your pants on See what you've done to me King of Chevron Axis It’s an axis It can bent and can twist at your feet It’s an axis Paraphylaxis And it can stone and destroy the street All you’ve known And all you love And that boy that you see time to time He’s not here She’s not there And it’s all down to earth, lemon lime It's a boy they cry as they shower her in love And the years that have passed, they have taught the boy to know If you want something, you can take it If she gives you a heart, you can break it For some, you know, it doesn't take a minute And my love has clearly seen that way I watch her as the peanuts cross her mouth And I melt away like New Years Day Do you think I'm pretty? National anthem Crying Do you think I'm pretty? National anthem New Years Day (x4)

Profanity, profanity, the word I say when people swear at me! In fact, there's the distinct possibility that by the end of the day, we'll all be going to hell Super Barbie country club Lookin' at us Katy Perry, super jelly Taylor Lautner's abs Going-going-going to hell Going-going-going to hell We go running through the dark And end up on a bus No idea where it might go We bring good times with us Going-going-going to hell Going-going-going to hell Supermarket carousel Gladiator bust If at the end our clothes are on Then we didn't have fun Going-going-going to hell Going-going-going to hell Five hundred things to do And not a moment to spare If my bikini's on fire It only means I've won! Find a pool pool pool pool pool And let us swim swim swim swim swim We're skinny dipping di-di-di-dipping for love! Don't need no money Get off me, honey When you're as cool as me You don't have to share Find a pool And let the good times begin 4AM, police arrive And shut the party down "Ma'am, go put your pants on now" I kick him in the nuts Going-going-going to hell Going-going-going to hell Run outside into the street Hand in hand with Brett Make out by the dark fire Singed my hair so bad Going-going-going to hell Going-going-going to hell Next morning, when I wake up Pregnancy test Brett won't call me anymore Don't need him anyway Going-going-going to hell Going-going-going to hell Five hundred things to do And not a moment to spare If my bikini's on fire It only means I've won! Find a pool pool pool pool pool And let us swim swim swim swim swim We're skinny dipping di-di-di-dipping for love! Don't need no money Get off me, honey When you're as cool as me You don't have to share Find a pool And let the good times begin Running through the streets Screaming like a baby Cutting my hair right off Forgetting my name It's hysteria, it's Nigeria I don't even know what that means I can't even remember where I live I can't even remember his name Though, really, do I actually care? Find a pool pool pool pool pool And let us swim swim swim swim swim We're skinny dipping di-di-di-dipping for love! Don't need no money Get off me, honey When you're as cool as me You don't have to share Find a pool And let the good times begin The thing is, if I'm so popular Why doesn't anybody like me?

You took a hook turn You took a hook turn I lost my soul in the cherrywood forest, oh Running with the girls and screaming “Oh no!” If you can find it, you can take it home with you ‘Cause where I’m going, I won’t need it at all Take a picture if you want this moment to last But the picture won’t represent the world at all All you get is a ruse, a state of mind Running with the souls of the people you keep out of mind Take a look closer, you can see it in their eyes There’s a menacing grimace to the way that they smile And when they come into your house late at night And steal everything that you ever held dear You’ll only begin to realize then What a lie your whole life has been You’ve been running with them the entire time You’ve been running with them the entire time You’ve been running with them the entire time You’ve been running with them the entire time You took a hook turn Took a took a hook turn You took a hook turn Took a took a hook turn Took a took a took a took a Took a took a hook turn Took a took a took a took a Took a took a hook turn (x2) In the cherrywood forest, sleeping under trees When you screamed “oh no,” they screamed “yes!” When they stabbed a tree, you cackled a laugh And down goes another, as you step over the body There’s not even time for a moment of peace As the willows descend on his overt smile And never again will you see those eyes They say that love is a river, you can drown They say that love is a hotel where everyone has died But I’m running through the cherrywood forest And I’ve lost everything that I ever held dear So as they smile, as they pick up his bones Just remember that soon, soon it’ll be you Soon it’ll be you Soon it’ll be you Soon it’ll be you Soon it’ll be you You took a hook turn Took a took a hook turn You took a hook turn Took a took a hook turn Took a took a took a took a Took a took a hook turn Took a took a took a took a Took a took a hook turn (x2) There's a fork in the road (x4) What do we do?

Never ever ever call Thread.stop Derivative of x plus 1 over x Eighteen sixty five by nine Is one minus 1865 by 9x squared Truth is often tough to hear But sometimes, you just gotta let it out This is me, rapping badly For your pleasure and discomfort Now listen up, 'cause I got a story to tell, but You won't hear it I like milkshakes for breakfast Throw pillows on the floor Throw chairs out the window Take rice cakes off the floor Document thread safety Document thread safety Document thread safety Document thread safety Bubblegum in my mouth overnight What the hell is this? Do you expect me to clean up after you? Get a job! But Mom, I got a lot of stuff to do Last night's Science homework Still on the floor from the milkshake I left outside Now it's rotten Do I look like I care about that crap? Now go clean your room! But Mom! But nothing! But Mom! Document Thread safety Document Document Thread safety Document Thread safety Then I got sent to boarding school Where I had to mingle with other people Not to mention of races, genders never seen before Doing really great Now I got a house A wife Sixteen kids But then I woke up Document Thread safety Document Document Thread safety Document Thread safety Don't care what you say Nothing is open at eleven at night Fell off my bed Wrong side Plus or minus Doesn't even make a difference now My milkshake's gone I've lost it I'm gone now I'm gone now I'm gone now I'm gone now I'm gone now I'm gone now I'm gone now I'm gone now I'm gone now I'm gone now

about

One of my biggest irrational fears is of transformation, that is, of somehow becoming something other than what I am, such as a werewolf or one of those gas mask zombies from Doctor Who. This fear keeps me awake at night more often than the fear of being killed. Of course, this fear is irrational because you can be nothing worse than a human being. We are a species cursed with thought, a species that is brought into life to experience a beautiful, temporary innocence before we all inevitably lose our minds at the mercy of our hormones. Did any of us really think constant suicidal ideation was what they meant when they said we would start to change soon? Humans cannot be the dominant species on the planet because they are so intrinsically flawed. One would be better off as a cat. No cat was ever depressed, because cats cannot think. The role of humans may as well only be to provide for the domesticated and blissfully dumb animals. The songs on this album deal with depression, in how it can be used to destroy an individual both internally and externally. They talk about a society in which the actions of those under the influence of drugs have no discernible behavioral differences to those not, a society in which not only depression destroys you, but in which the bigoted also physically destroy you, a society in which there is no viable way to succeed because all of the correct answers are grayed out, a society in which more is expected of an individual than should be, a society in which a girl can contemplate suicide because she didn't make prom queen. This profoundly sick society is ours. It may sound like I'm trying to spread my pearls of wisdom here, but don't worry, I fully recognize that this is quite stupid. I also recognize that this album and its related work only showcase the dark side of humanity. Will the next album perhaps exemplify what good and beauty there is in life? That all depends on if the antidepressants ever start working.
