Track Name: This Intro Was Probably Unnecessary
Welcome to the mystery
I hope you enjoy it as it unfolds
Ihope it gets retold
I hope you don't think
It's the same old thing, repackaged
It's all about how I'm damaged

I hope you don't think it's a little pathetic
I put so much thought into all these songs
I got my heart broken a couple times
so I wrote a million songs about killing everyone

(on with the show)
Track Name: Murder
Verse 1:
White outline outside your house as you pull in
signs of struggle on the neighbors door
the car is missing, and the kids are scared
there's some blood on the floor

Chorus riff

Verse 2:
Someone somewhere is burning his clothes
to smoke out the smell
a stolen car got left in a field
can't be seen using it

Cm, C#, F, D#me
they found the weapon
the blunt side of a stake
used it as a club
to cave in her face

Chorus:
How do you keep a secret
Murder
How do you make sure you're the only one who knows

How do you find those secrets again
Torture
and make sure they aren't going home

Verse 3 (bass and drums):
who knows the motive? could be a
lover's spat maybe a debt gone wrong
the kids say they didn't see a thing
are they protecting someone

Cm, C#, F, D#me
where could he be by now
the man, the man who did this
where could they be right now
the people, the people who did this

CHORUS*2

Verse 4:
Evidence on the fire
MURDER
used latex gloves in his sleeves
MURDER
his fingerprints on her kitchen knife
MURDER
the neighbors they heard a scream
MURDER
they said that she owed him money
MURDER
too late to give it back now
MURDER
we're not at liberty to discuss the
MURDER
we're not at liberty to discuss the
MURDER

We're not at liberty to discuss the
MURDER
we're not at liberty to discuss the
MURDER
We're not at liberty to discuss the
MURDER
we're not at liberty to disCUSS

16 bars of solo

We're not at liberty to discuss the
MURDER
we're not at liberty to discuss the
MURDER
we're not at liberty to discuss the
MURDER
we're not at liberty to disCUSS
Track Name: Disaster
We were so close
not so long ago

Verse 1:
Wake up to get some lunch
read the note that you left me and tear it up
I knew this was coming but I thought that you'd at least
have the decency to tell me to my face

I wasn't read to give up yet
but I knew it had to happen
nothing ever lasts forever
but it's not official

till you give it all up
or give it away
I always knew that it could end this way
did you always think
it was gonna stay the same
cus I always knew that it could end this way

Chorus 1:
There's no such thing as happy ever after
it's always just a fucking huge disaster
so take all my words and throw them back in my face
cus I always knew that It could end this way

Verse 2:
your friend dropped by to get your things
she said she had a message from you to me
she said you were sorry, and you wanna talk
but not right now, so please don't call

I guess I don't get it
I guess I don't understand
your friend said it was to be expected
I guess it was, but I'd never expect

that you would just give us up
and just run away
how long did you know it was gonna happen one day
I wish I wasn't so blind
apparently it was easy
to see you were always
going to leave me

Chorus 2:
There's no such thing as happy ever after
it's always just a waste of energy
so you can take all your things back to your new place
cus in the end, I wish you'd never have met me

Verse 3:
So now that it's over and fallen apart
so now that it's over and fallen apart
can we get back to who we really are
can we get back to who we really are?
Track Name: Ironic Love Song
I guess I ought to start this by saying
I think you're really fricking cute
I probably ought to say I feel really self concious
writing a song about you

I've never done this before
at least not like this
give me some pinters
and tell me how to impress ou

Because I
think the way you ramble when you're tired
is adorable
And I
love the way that you'll crack up
at the weirdest things

I don't even know if you like this kind of thing
but its just about the only way that I know how to be
romantic
and I barely know how to do it like this

I bet you probably didn't even think I
thought about you
I'm seriously seriously seriously really hoping
that you wondered if I did

Because I
smile whenever I think about you smiling
and I
get real jealous half the time I see you smiling
Track Name: Last Time
You lied to my face and my friends and I'm
SICK OF IT

you stabbed me in the back and you won't even
ADMIT IT

I don't understand why you'd choose to hurt me
but I know sure as hell that I didn't deserve it

I guess I'm too good cus I won't call you
OUT ON IT

and what you deserve isn't what you're
GONNA GET

because all that I want is to throw your
FACE IN IT

because you wasted my time and my friendship and
EVERYTHING

I put so much effort in to make it work and
you could have at least fucking tried to return it

and this is the last time
you get to fuck me over like this
because I've put a lot of thought into NOT
making you feel like scum for IT
If you lie to me again
you won't ever see me again
so this is the last time
yeah THIS IS THE LAST DAMN TIME

I WAITED FOR THE SMOKE TO CLEAR
BUT I GUESS IT ISN'T GOING ANYWHERE
BECAUSE THE MORE YOU TELL ME AND THE MORE I LEARN
THE CRUELLER YOU SEEM TO BECOME, AND I DON'T KNOW

IF YOUR CRUEL, DELUSIONAL, OR STUPID
BUT I KNOW I DON'T WANNA FIND OUT WHICH ONE
BECAUSE IT WASN'T VERY LONG AGO
THAT I THOUGHT YOU WERE WONDERFUL BUT

YOU LIED TO ME
REPEATEDLY
FOR NO GOOD REASON
THAT I CAN SEE
*2

This is the last time
Track Name: Birth
He left his sanity in his father's coat pocket
then his father got on a train
never to be seen again

He lived with his mother
she was sort of detached
after he left they only saw each other for dinner

She wouldn't tell him, cus he didn't ask
why did he leave? why won't you talk to me?
he though if he asked
sh'd just glare him down

he waited till she'd gone shopping
to break into his study
took all that he saw
1 camera, 3 packs of fags and a diary

He read the diary first
a one o clock luch with Suzanne
every weekday for the last three weeks
then he tried the cigarettes

He waited till she was asleep
to turn on the camera
the pictures were blurry from sweat
but he could see the nude forms of Suzanne

he looked up directories, looked up yellow pages
till he knew who he was looking for
got on the next train, rode it for half a day
until he found his dad in her living room

the blade he stole from his kitchen
pressed against her skin
it only took one swipe
for her to bleed out

His father spent the rest of the day crying
before he helped the boy bury the girl
his mother never heard from him
more bodies showed up and the killer was born
Track Name: Wiggly Tooth
I've got a wiggly tooth
if I push against it with my tongue it bounces back
the gum around it hurts, I think it's cracked
and if my tooth falls out I'll hurt my back

stooping down to pick it up
because I can't bend that way if I don't crack it first
it's pretty weird ten years ago
I never would've said my gums and my back hurt

Ten years ago, a tooth falls out
goes under your pillow till stars come out
and while you're asleep, quieter than death
mummy slips a pound coin under your head

that coin could be anything for you
I bet for you it was sweets too right?
it'll help the other teeth come out too
because ten years ago it was okay to have a sweet tooth

Now I've got another wiggly tooth
and if it falls out and I pick it up
put it under my pillow before I sleep
It'll still be there when I wake up

Nobody's gonna give me money for it this time
because the tooth fairy won't be able to come
because I'll never fall asleep
with broken nerve endings hurting my brain, my cheek, my gum

Being grown makes you lose your mind
being grown makes drink and eat
being grown really distracts you
being grown makes you forget to brush your teeth

and now I've got a wiggly tooth
if I push against it with my tongue it bounces back
the gum around it hurts I think it's cracked
and if my tooth falls out this time it won't grow back
Track Name: Story
Her Father broke the door down
she'd pressed some silent alarm
he'd fooled her into letting him in
it didn't take long to tie down her arms

Her father had a cricket bat
he smacked him in the back, and he fell off of her
he ran to where he pretended his car broke down
drove off into the desert, with her father chasing after

He drove for two hours
until he was sure that he had lost the vengeful
he hadn't been paying attention to his petrol
he broke down again, this time genuine

he walked for nearly four hours
He collapsed next to a rock
sweat stung his eyes and the cuts on his cock
and his legs would no longer walk

He saw Jenny first
He knew she wasn't real
but she somehow smelled the same as she did when he
put the gag in her teeth

she held the knife he used, and behind her
lucy walked up too
holding the razer he'd pressed against her
together they plunged them into him

the three other girls he'd violated
joined them too, he didn't know their names
one held a rope, another a gag
and the last just laughed

They tied him down, the gag in his mouth
the hallucination came with real pain and litle doubt
his time had come, he closed his eyes
told the five girls he was sorry before he said goodbye
Track Name: Sick
I gotta pretend this is the last song I'll ever write about a girl
who doesn't know it's about her
I'm sick of hoping that one day
they'll guess and respond

I gotta stop putting my shadows out there and letting people trust me and letting me trust them
because I know what I'm
yeah I know what I'm like
and I'll always want more

So wipe the crust from the corner of my eye 'cause
I'm so sick of love
and clear the tracks on the album I was writing 'cause
I'm so sick of love
burn the pages of the story I was making 'cause
I'm done with love
I gotta pretend this is the last song because
I'm sick of love

I gotta pretend this is the last time
I'm gonna feel pathetic because that girl won't hold me
I'm gonna pretend I'm not jealous or lonely or sick of talking to people about it

'cause it's almost always her
who wants to share
who wants to be there for me
I'm so sick of her being there for me

CHORUS

so don't tell me you love me
before you leave me
'cause you've got a habit
of doing that lately
let me live in a daydream
then take it away from me
right under my feet
do you care, do you want me
Track Name: I (Anthem of Teenage Angst)
Verse 1:
I'm sick of living in my bed
I'm sick of being all alone
I'm sick of having no girlfriend
I'm sick of never leaving home
I'm sick of wasting all my time
chasing girls chasing friends
I'm sick of doing nothing
getting nothing in the end

I'm sick of pissing all my money
down the stupid drain
I'm sick of sitting on my arse
so I can wait for things to change
I'm sick of hating everybody
who I think I used to love
I'm sick of wanting everyone I know
to choke on their own blood


Chorus:
I WANT FAME, I WANT POWER, I WANT MONEY
I WANT FRIENDS, DON'T WANNA BE SICK, DON'T WANNA BE LONELY
I WANT GIRLS, I WANNA BE SEXY, I WANNA BE FUNNY
I WANT FAME, I WANT GIRLS, I WANT MONEY

Verse 2:
I'm tired of completing hating myself
and all of you
i'm tired of wishing that I didn't
that I wouldn't but I do
I'm tired of wanting to be closer
to all of my friends
I'm tired of wanting all the girls
I talk to in my bed

I wish I could be better about all of this
but People make me sick
I wish I could keep my friends happy
but all that matters is

CHORUS

Verse 3:
you don't wanna be
you don't wanna be
you don't wanna be
you don't wanna be me
Track Name: Toxic
You're flame burns colder than ice tonight
so I'll leave you alone
you're toxic and I don't think I can keep on
breathing you

How long has it been like this
how long have you made me feel dead
I almost don't remember how we used to be
but it's not like you care

Do you miss what we used to be
'cause it's been byears since I've felt comfortable
and i know we'll never be

I wish this could be easier to say,
but it'll never happen if it's not now
so goodbye my friend
and good riddance if this should be the end

You tell me it's my fault like
I wanna be falling apart
I wish i could steer you back on your path

but you hate us
even if you don't know it
and I can tell we're
never coming back from this

I never
know what to say
just can't tell
what can make this better for you

do you miss, feeling like you could believe
'cause I know you wish you could hold onto this
and I love you so much for that

but now we've reached a point of no return
and we've got to accpet we can't move past this
we're flawed
Track Name: Mystery
You never came home that night
but it wouldn't have been the first time
you usually stay out late
I didn't think it'd be anything too sinister

Police knocked on our door the next day
showed me a picture of your face
is this your son they said
I said how'd he get that cut on his face

Sir sit down I have some bad news
we found him this morning he was
in a ditch

sir I wish I wasn't the one to tell you
your son is dead
whoever it was slit his neck

I don't wanna move your things
I don't wanna say you're gone
I won't let them touch your stuff
'cause what if they're wrong

Why would anyone do something like this?
you never hurt anyone
it's a mystery but it's one I'm gonna solve

and when I find the people who did this
i swear to god they're gonna pay
and they're gonna hurt for it
even if I have to track them down myself
and give them what they deserve

I've never felt a rage like this
I don't know what I'm capable of

What if I tried a little harder
to be your friend
maybe you wouldn't have left that night
Please god I'd do anything
to have him back
please send him back

I'm not sure how much
longer I can take this
I miss you
unlike anything I've ever felt before
I'm not sure i wanna
go on

I got rid of your things
and gave away your stuff
you're not coming back
it's time to give up
