Track Name: When I'm Gone
I know I should be hurt and sad and angry
And believe me, I am
I should fill this song with minor chords and whine about
How I did the best I can
It's nice to know what friends are for
But this ain't it
It's like you went and turned the knife
Before you even stabbed me in the back

So go ahead on you merry way
I wish you the best, I hope you make it someday
'Cause I am moving on
Try not to miss me when I'm gone

Thanks for all the compliments, oh I can tell
You meant every word
And thanks for all the funny jokes, but you should know
I never laughed that hard
And I know you never thought I could yell
And that's just great
But if you could hear me now
I'd hope it make your ears shake

So go ahead on you merry way
I wish you the best, I hope you make it someday
'Cause I won't die in your blood
It was never where I belonged
And if you wanted to see me break
Well, I've got some scars
But I survived your earthquake
And I am moving on
Try not to miss me when I'm
Miss me when I'm gone

If you have something else to say
You better say it
You better say it
You better say it
The song's almost over and I can't take it
You better say it

So go ahead on you merry way
I hope that you get your ass kicked someday
'Cause I won't die in your blood
It was never where I belonged
And if you wanted to see me break
Well, I've got some scars
But I survived your earthquake
And I am moving on
Try not to miss me when I'm
Miss me when I'm gone
Track Name: Through Your Teeth
Take me, break me
I can't stand the heat
And you burn me up
I need some tongue to twist in my teeth
And make me feel loved
But listen, cheap trick
That's just what I am
If you take me home
Hell nah, I won't
Wake up by myself
But I'll leave alone

All this time you just wanted in
But I don't even know where the hell that is
All this time you just wanted in
But I don't even know where the hell that is

Take me, break me
I can't stand the heat
And you burn me up
I need some tongue to twist in my teeth
And make me feel loved
But listen, cheap trick
That's just what I am
If you take me home
Hell nah, I won't
Wake up by myself
But I'll leave alone

All this time you just wanted in
But I don't even know where the hell that is
All this time you just wanted in
But I don't even know where the hell that is

You're a mold in my bed
I'm a tongue in your cheek
You're a mold in my bed
Gonna rot through your teeth
Track Name: Oh, Mama
Well, I've been doing great
It's nice to know you really care
But I wish you would stop worrying
From all the way back there
You know college is pretty cool
I've made a lot of awesome friends
But I probably shouldn't tell you
All the crazy shit we did
I still dream of California
And beating up LA
Haven't lost all of my focus
It's just been delayed

But I'm fine
I'm still alive
For now

Oh, mama I tried
To be a good girl, one
Who didn't screw up sometimes
Didn't screw up at all
But that's not who I am
I'll sleep in till three
And be turned up by four
I'm just trying to have fun while I can
Oh, mama
I hope you understand

Sometimes I go so hard
That nobody wants my swag
It's been one too many times
My head's been in a bag
But I've tried to play it cool
Be the big man that I'm not
Oh, it's got me into trouble
So much that I forgot

But I'm fine
I'm still alive
For now

Oh, mama I tried
To be a good girl, one
Who didn't screw up sometimes
Didn't screw up at all
But that's not who I am
I'll sleep in till three
And be turned up by four
I'm just trying to have fun while I can
Oh, mama

When I'm twenty-seven
Will I still be sane
Will I die tomorrow
Just for one more drink
Sometimes I think I've lost it
And I don't feel like me
But I'm down for another
If it makes me forget everything
Everything
Everything
Everything

Oh, mama I tried
To be a good girl, one
Who didn't screw up sometimes
Didn't screw up at all
But that's not who I am
I'll sleep in till three
And be turned up by four
I'm just trying to have fun while I can
Oh, mama
I hope you understand
Understand
Understand
I hope you understand
I hope you understand
Track Name: When You Think of Her
She walks in like she owns the space
And it drives me wild
Makes me feel like I should shrink
She probably ties her pants in knots
probably sets your eyes on fire
She's got brains to match the physique

Hey, well I am over here
Don't I get a flower
I can do that thing she does
But she looks cleaner than I do
It probably takes her hours
I am out the door in seconds

When you think of her
Do you see me
Do you see me at all
'Cause I feel like a joke
You're never gonna laugh at
You're never gonna laugh at all

I think we both got the same hair
She just wears it better
She's got style and I've got crass
I try to think of who I am
And why the hell it matters
It's so easy to forget

'Cause I'm surrounded by
This goddamn beauty
I wish I could just turn off
Oh, it's been a while
Since I felt lovely
Just by being myself

When you think of her
Do you see me
Do you see me at all
'Cause I feel like a joke
You're never gonna laugh at
You're never gonna laugh at all

'Cause I'm surrounded by
This goddamn beauty
I wish I could just turn off
But why should I care
'Cause aren't I lovely
Just by being myself


When you think of her
Do you see me
Do you see me at all
'Cause I feel like a joke
You're never gonna laugh at
You're never gonna laugh at all

When you think of her
Do you see me
Do you see me at all
Well, I don't care anymore
You can go have her
'Cause I have got it all, oh
'Cause I have got it all
'Cause I have got it all
Track Name: Sloppy Seconds
I'm not mad anymore
But I was pretty angry
I might've called you a few
Unmentionable things
But I'm doing just fine
And I'm not even jealous
So, hey good luck
Topping that shit

You can take all you want from me
Oh no, it doesn't matter
Fat tits don't mean a thing
And I have seen much better
I don't care about it no more
Hardly ever had him
I have better songs to sing
And you can have my sloppy seconds
My sloppy seconds

I'm not sad anymore
But believe me, I was
I used to feel dumb and ugly
And freakin' insecure
But hey, I'm much stronger than you are
I don't need sex to pull me up
Or make me feel special

Was it good
Did it make you feel loved
Was he everything you wanted for the night
Oh, I know
'Cause I have been there
He was everything I needed for the night

Take all you want from me
Oh no, it doesn't matter
Fat tits don't mean a thing
And I have seen much better
I don't care about it no more
Hardly ever had him
I have better songs to sing
And you can have my sloppy seconds
My sloppy seconds
My sloppy seconds

It'd be great if we were friends
After you hear this
It'd be great if you still cared for me
But I don't expect a word
I don't expect you to smile anymore
At me

So take all you want from me
Oh no, it doesn't matter
Fat tits don't mean a thing
And I have seen much better
I don't care about it no more
Hardly ever had him
I have better songs to sing
And you can have my sloppy seconds
Fat tits don't mean a thing
I don't care about it no more
I have better songs to sing
And you can have my sloppy seconds
Track Name: Human
Take a stab at what
Has got you stuck this time
You set your brain on fire
Wonder why you're so much older
But don't know how to be alive

Tell me where it hurts
Is the belly of your gut about to burst
'Cause I can hear them rumbling
All those bombs packed in your stomach
Maybe you, you should set them off

It feels good to feel so raw
Like you've been cut by shooting stars
Now you're human
Now you're human

What's it like to be alone
Nobody here to calm you down
Your head just keeps on talking
While you sit there feeling silenced
Just scream, scream it all out

It feels good to feel so raw
Like you've been cut by shooting stars
Now you're human
Now you're human

It feels good to feel so raw
Like you've been cut by shooting stars
Now you're human
Now you're human
Now you're human
Now you're human
Now you're human
Now you're human
Now you're human
Now you're human
