should I up and walk away? think about a better part of my day or should I open up to you? with all the words you misconstrue should I order out for food would you like Chinese or maybe fondue or is it time for some leftovers our dessert is Russell Stover's and when I look into your eyes I see that you don't really care for me is it time for us to talk? cause if so I think I'll take a walk and let you cool down until your done because your angry voice is no fun and when I look into your eyes I see that you don't really care for me I'm doing all that I can to make me into your perfect man but I'm so tired of all the fighting the back and forth's not so exciting and when I look into your eyes I see you're searching for what I'm supposed to be and since you’re so upset should I just leave? cause you don't really care for me

I took a stroll around the block one morning thick with all the raining I didn't think with all my luck one missing bike I would be gaining I saw a hobo riding by on one familiar looking schwinn "o what a lovely bike," said I that's when I noticed it was steven's and I chased after that hobo shouting halting words with gusto I politely asked him where he got that bastard bike he responded curtly with a right hook to my left eye here I found your stupid bike steven now you can stop calling here I found your stupid bike with a homeless man I'm brawling I took a roundhouse to the face I didn't know he knew karate this really wasn't my place as my only defense was pilates I almost turned away and ran but I knew I should stand my ground this bum with moves out of japan was blocking me from what I found and so I battled with that hobo using moves I learned from my uncle we were so fatigued that we both collapsed on the grass I would've fallen asleep right there but I was too busy laughing my ass off here I found your stupid bike steven now you can stop calling here I found your stupid bike with a homeless man I'm brawling here I found your stupid bike he gave it to me free of charge here I found your stupid bike now it's no longer at large

tony gazed at cacti staring back at him with prickles baring souls so soft and jellylike, he didn't know if he should fight the dehydration overtaking, or if instead he should partake in sickly juices in the green of cacti's prickly little leaves the stories told of water stored and found by those who holes had bored into the plant's leathery flesh a fiberistic icky mesh he took a chance, removed the spines and cracked the plant to look inside and what he found made him feel ill, he saw inside was filled with jelly he was far from home in the desert alone the ground was quite a mottled red the martian landscape was his bed and although he could breathe out here he found that there was no one near no martian, man, or humanoid no anything to fill the void just him and his soliloquies and silent longing for a breeze or maybe an oasis proper palm trees and a spring of water "there's no palm trees in arizona" he thought, and he was right you know ... ah he was far from home in the desert alone and he saw in the distance his beautiful girlfriend holding a glass of lemonade when he came up to her she was just a mirage he was far from home in the desert alone tony strove beyond his limit won't be taken for a dimwit mirages happen all the time especially ones with lemon-lime his girlfriend was a prickly pear of this he was quickly aware when puckered lips kissed killer spines again, this happens all the time and as the night crept over shoulders made the landscape so much colder fighting off the freezing chill he crawled over a barren hill and tony, who could go no more had found what he was looking for he leapt and said, "oh lordy lordy there's interstate number 40!" he was far from home in the desert alone

if I had a nickel for every time a woman walked by who was really fine well I'd have a hundred dollars or so but I wouldn't have a girl to take home if I had a dollar for every drink I bought for a girl cause she looked pretty in pink well I'd have a house on lake Tahoe but I wouldn't have a girl to take home all I wanna do is make sweet love to you but you don't even know my name I tried to call your home but no one got the phone I guess that I'm the one to blame if I had a sandwich for every gal who had her arms around some other pal well I'd have a meal fit for a man on a throne but I wouldn't have a girl to take home

Let it Die (free) 02:33
Let it die. Get out of my mind. We don't see eye to eye. Or hear ear to ear. Don't you wish that we could forget that kiss ? And see this for what it is. That we're not in love. The saddest part of a broken heart Isn't the ending, so much as the start It was hard to tell. Just how I felt. To not recognize myself. I started to fade (away, away, away). After all. It won't take long to fall (in love). Now I know what I don't want. I learned that with you. The saddest part of a broken heart. Isn't the ending, so much as the start. The tragedy starts at the very first part. Losing your mind for the sake of your heart. The saddest part of a broken heart. Isn't the ending, so much as the start.

tell the kids the fire's burning and we'll roast marshmallows in the heap of dying embers is where we'll dry our toes oh the house where we spent our lives slowly crumbles into ash and while we watch we secret high fives for from the smoulder comes the cash forget about the dog, he was too old anyway he will be remembered forget about the things that made you so unique they were all built in taiwan forget about the lawn the day we burned our house down was the best day of our lives the day we burned our house down and we didn't even try to contain it i can't explain it we all wanted it to burn it lit up the town the day we burned our house down and we sat among the evergreens awaiting our direction, awaiting our direction and i kissed you by the fireside in the moonlight prechorus chorus

ohhh! when I was a lad all I thoughts that I had were how I would become a great actor so I took me some classes but my teachers were asses figured school wasn't such a big factor so I went show to show with my headshot in tow and a light little step in my shoe and with each role I got in this notebook I thought of all the great things I would do I'm gonna buy me a solid gold car Oh boy I'm gonna go far And I'm gonna play my guitar in the hallway all I want to I'm gonna live me a life of ease All my vices I'm gonna appease I've got all the expertise yes it's the life for me when I'm equity now this is my directive not to be so introspective when in doubt I should consider myself lucky with this brazen charm of mine I'm sure I'll do just fine in fact I think directors find me plucky but when faced with such a luxury I find I'm quite unusually afraid of what I'll do when I'm on stage and when times like these arise I find I must reprise my notebook, so I'll simply turn the page I'm gonna eat me a seven course meal steep myself in sex appeal I'll negotiate a six-figure deal and I'll do it with a smile I'm gonna buy me a forty foot yacht then return all the things that I bought go out and buy a hundred more yes it's the life for me when I'm equity and just so you know all you people down below can expect a thank you card when I'm a star so just you wait and see for the star I’m going to be until then, stay where you are all together now! I'm gonna buy me a solid gold car (a convertible!) Oh boy I'm gonna go far (inconceivable!) And I'm gonna play my guitar in the hallway all I want to (ditty) I'm gonna live me a life of ease (where’s my irish cream?) All my vices I'm gonna appease (mostly gambling) I've got all the expertise yes it's the life for me when I'm ... [key change] I'm gonna eat me a seven course meal [try the lobster bisque] steep myself in sex appeal [now that’s a bit of a risk] negotiate a six-figure deal and I'll do it with a smile [sign on the dotted line] buy me a forty foot yacht [a convertible!] then return all the things that I bought [you’re despicable!] go out and buy a hundred more yes it's the life for me when I'm equity
