Barry
Verse 1:
Barry itís not that I love you
Itís that I love you too much
To the point where it isnít fun
Hey Barry this could get heavy
and Iím betting
like more than a crush
Yo we should hook up

Chorus:
Either love me hard or just go home
Either take me far or let me go
Either wake me up or let me sleep
Either make life fun or let me be

Verse 2:
Barry youíre not mine youíre still hers
And it has got me crushed
To the point where I canít take the sun
Yo Barry are you forgetting
Remember youíre married
And I share with no one
And Iím starting to come undone

Chorus:
Either love me hard or just go home
Either take me far or let me go
Either wake me up or let me sleep
Either make life fun or let me be

Bridge:
Barry baby
Canít help this feeling
Somethingís coming over me
I can barely breathe
So Barry can we
Kiss tenderly
You know I need you desperately
Oh Barry

Chorus:
Either love me hard or just go home
Either take me far or let me go
Either wake me up or let me sleep
Either make life fun or let me be

So You Say
Intro:
Iíll never know the perfect love
Tried to find him but had no luck
And itís not like Iím getting young
I guess he doesnít really need to be hung

Verse 1:
How come when Iíd look heíd turn away?
Was there always something on my face?
Started believing it had to be something wrong with me
And thatís not a good place to be stuck mentally

Hook:
Iíd brag that you were my man
And youíd laugh it off whenever theyíd ask
And Iíd go to grab your hand
And you what, take 3 steps back
Iíd politely smile like I wasnít sad
In retrospect I should have fucking ran
And Iím sure I would have had I saw the end
Foresaw the cold, empty right side of my bed

Chorus:
So you say you loved me so
But I never felt it though
You were such an asshole
Still, I canít believe I let you go

Verse 2:
How come when I smiled he wasnít there?
Was it Ďcause he really didnít care?
Or was it because I was a lot happier on my own?
If I had to conclude this now Iíd say thatís fair

Hook:
Iíd brag that you were my man
And youíd laugh it off whenever theyíd ask
And Iíd go to grab your hand
And you what, take 3 steps back
Iíd politely smile like I wasnít sad
In retrospect I should have fucking ran
And Iím sure I would have had I saw the end
Foresaw the cold, empty right side of my bed

Chorus:
So you say you loved me so
But I never felt it though
You were such an asshole
Still, I canít believe I let you go

Bridge:
Canít believe that I let you go

Chorus:
So you say you loved me so (Iíll never never never never know)

But I never felt it though (Iíll never never never never know)
You were such an asshole (Iíll never never never never know)
Still, I canít believe I let you go (Iíll never never never never know)

Chorus:
So you say you loved me so (Iíll never never never never know)
But I never felt it though (Iíll never never never never know)
You were such an asshole (Iíll never never never never know)
Still, I canít believe I let you go (Iíll never never never never know)

Loved Like Drugs
Verse 1:
How come Joey and Nicky, Tommy and Larry,
Joshie and Gary, Lived life so scary?
How come they were so reckless? I tell ya nothing says
ĎFather of the Yearí like getting arrested.

Hook 1:
Whyíd they all end up being drug-fiends?
Whyíd they change as soon as they got with me?
Whyís this seem to happen to me, always?
Itís not funny!

Chorus 1:
All the guys that Iíve loved liked drugs.
All the guys that Iíve loved, loved their drugs like I like love.

Verse 2:

And Iíd know what thatíd mean, you were hanging with Davey.
Thereís more pot in his oven than food in my pantry.

Hook 2:
Whyíd you all end up being drug-fiends?
Whyíd you change as soon as you got with me?

Youíre not funny!

All the guys that Iíve loved, have loved their drugs like I like love.
All the guys that Iíve loved liked drugs.
All the guys that Iíve loved, loved their drugs like I like love.

Bridge:
Maybe itís just my disposition, the one I have due to weed.
Dunno, all I knowís Iím immune to living narcotic-ally.
Iím the type of person who likes being in control of my brain.
And Iím just so thankful Iím happy enough to live soberly.

The night is young, youíre high as fuck.
Youíre cheating now, and having fun.
But now youíre starting to come down,
enough to see just what youíve done.

Chorus 2:
All the guys that Iíve loved liked drugs.
All the guys that Iíve loved, have loved their drugs like I like love.
All the guys that Iíve loved liked drugs.

All the guys that Iíve loved, have loved their drugs like I like love.
All the guys that Iíve loved liked drugs.
All the guys that Iíve loved, loved their drugs like I like love.

He Wasn't Happy
Verse 1:
He claimed the pain that you caused him was gone
Because you feigned interest in him. He was your pawn
And so he was dishonest within his song
Because he really knew the truth about you all along

Chorus 1:
He wasnít happy. Thatís just what he felt he had to say
In actuality you stripped his dignity away
In reality, his heart, itíd seen better days
He was unhealthy, and it was you who made him feel that way

Verse 2:
You caused him unforgettable pain, but he forgave you
So now you can move on with your day, and just be thankful
There wasnít much that he couldnít see
And thatís why you let him down so much, consequently
And it sucks, heíd be begging you for love
so desperately, but enough was never enough

Chorus 2:
He wasnít happy. Thatís just what he felt he had to say
In reality you stripped all his dignity away
In actuality, his heart, itíd seen better days
He was unhealthy, and it was you who made him feel that way

In reality you stripped all his dignity away

He wasnít happy. Thatís just what he felt he had to say
In reality you stripped all his dignity away
In actuality, his heart, itíd seen better days
He was unhealthy, and it was you who made him feel that way

Bridge:
And that apocalyptic world that you built for him,
and then left him in, was really the sin youíd asked him to forgive
So he put your mind at ease and then, he granted you your wish
but heíll never forget

Chorus 2:
He wasnít happy. Thatís just what he felt he had to say
In reality you stripped all his dignity away
In actuality, his heart, itíd seen better days
He was unhealthy, and it was you who made him feel that way

Verse 1:
Everyone has known at least one of these pricks in their lives.

Theyíre pieces of shit; the worst of mankind, these subhuman slime.

Hook:

Itís no surprise that those guys ainít got any friends.
Some people weren't meant to have lovers.

Those womanizing fuglies that you try to dodge at all costs,
ĎCause every time you fuckiní see Ďem your heart turns to frost.

because they beat on woman, and they talk down to their children.
These sub-par mechanisms can be alcoholic dickheads,

The Dead Limb

You were like a light always shining
Iíd love to reach out but they shut down AIM
I have a capsule built by us capturing that time and space

But I gotta bleed your face away

You were like a darkness but that shined bright

Residual Spirit
Verse 1:
I have risen from the ashes that you left in our wake.
Itís here that Iíve remained like a residual spirit.
I forgot how to press play on my life. Itís not the same.

Hook:
You did not hesitate, the day you went away. You sealed my fate.

Chorus:
You forgot about me. You forgot about us.
But you couldnít see, because you only cared about drugs.
You forgot about Ďwe.í You had your head in your butt,
so you didnít see, you didnít know how to love.

Verse 2:
Iím battling all of these demons you indirectly left to feast
when you left only your dusty memory, but I canít say that itís all your fault.
They were always haunting, albeit, buried deeply inside me.

15 minutes.
Now fast-forward to 16 minutes in, and Iím still stuck in it.
The same position, only fatter.

Chorus:
You forgot about me. You forgot about us.
But you couldnít see, because you only cared about drugs.
You forgot about Ďwe.í You had your head in your butt,
so you didnít see, you didnít know how to love.

Like
Verse 1:
Like he was gone before I knew it.
Like he was lost. Like he was damn lit,
and I couldnít pretend that I was cool with the situation
when weíd had the talk on several occasions,
and at what cost? Only our friendship.
Like thatís not something that always comes along.

Chorus:
You were not the one for me.
You never were, and that still hurts.
You, like so many before, lost your worth.
You werenít the first.

Verse 2:
And he wiped off her purple lipstick,
like he was boss. Like I didnít see it,
and I could not go back down that road with him again
when heíd lost my trust. Iím like so over this.
It was all his fault. It really was simplistic,
and whatís so sad is that this didnít have to be a negative song.

Chorus:
You were not the one for me.
You never were, and that still hurts.
You, like so many before, lost your worth.
You werenít the first.

Bridge:
I have lost my innocence.
Iím a lost cause, like Iím no longer with it,
and life it lost its thrill for me so long ago.
Like I have evolved
into what I couldnít tell you, but itís not fun,
and although it didnít happen in one fell swoop,
it still happened because of you.

Chorus:
You were not the one for me.
You never were, and that still hurts.
You, like so many before, lost your worth.
You werenít the first.

Chorus:
You were not the one for me.
You never were, and that still hurts.
You, like so many before, lost your worth.
You werenít the first.

Pot & Cheap Incense
Verse 1:
If one thing gets you down
pretty soon you canít even see the
-the sunshine through the clouds,
but the odds keep stacking up a-
against you all around.
Have you back against a wall
where you sob crouched, and unsound.
Facing a corner you cry.

Hook 1:
One stoneís throw away from home,
and yet you still feel so far away.

Chorus 1:
Thatís when you know youíre home.
It smells like pot and cheap incense.
You know youíre home home.
Feel secure enough when youíre alone.
It smells like pot and cheap incense.

Verse 2:
Yeah, sometimes life can suck.
Sometimes 'kill me' even,
and youíll want to give up,
and at the same time you keep breathing,
but youíve still gotta deal with all the schmucks
even when your heart is bleeding.
Especially when you feel fucked,
and in spite of all the demons.

Hook 2:
They do not own your soul,
so donít let them trick you,
and make you think...

Chorus 2:
that youíre not home.
It smells like pot and cheap incense.
You know youíre home.
You know youíre home.
You know youíre...
Feel secure enough when youíre alone.
It smells like pot and cheap incense.

Bridge:
And I gave, and I gave, and I gave into my bitch ass.
I hoped I would get some satisfaction back,
and I dug down, deep, right into the crypts
of my soul, in fact,
to find the shit that makes my soul work
unpatchably cracked.
I found this huge ass bull, ya know,
angry at the world, man.
There to attack fans and friends
and without dudes red flag.
I uncovered this volcano of emotions,
and whack crap,
and they say Ďdude relaxí
when shit, it knocked me right on my ass.
My chest hurt,
and I couldnít breathe.
I had a relapse
of life back when I was young,
and all I seen was my dad,
and his fist right up in my grill,
and those bruises on my back,
but his words are what hurt, and stuck
the most, like Ďsissyí and Ďfagí...

Chorus 3:
It smells like pot and cheap incense.
-all because he was flying higher than a bat,
and even when he didnít have a bag.
It smells like pot and cheap incense.
-all because he was flying higher than a bat,
and even when he didnít have a bag.
