"Bad Scene And A Basement Show"

Well the scene here he wants her back
he's trying to use the phone
she's hanging up he's given up
he should've known
looking lost then he wanders off
and tries to sing along to some song he's never heard
but just keeps mouthing all the words

It gets worse before it's all over
I know I'll get through this somehow
It gets worse before it's all over
and nothing's gonna change her mind for now

Well the scene here he's still alone
another band goes on in this crowded basement
with too much small talk and lame inside jokes
Feeling useless out of excuses
he should've known to let it go
she said "it's done"
Second chances seem to never come

It gets worse before it's all over
I know I'll get through this somehow
It gets worse before it's all over
and nothing's gonna change her mind for now

After all the bad endings and misunderstandings
and all of the late night last hopes and lost time
and all that she left for me wasonly a memory
all I can say is she don't understand me



"Malt Liquor Tastes Better When You've Got Problems"

And I've been so busy trying
that I've only wound up living
weekend to weekend
getting by just simply "trying"

And I should be out looking for a job
but only wind up heading for a stiff drink
Left with nothing else so I think
"it's time to stumble home"

So I say Hello to wasted hours
and I say bottoms up to better days

I've been so busy dying
that I've always wound up living
paycheck to paycheck
scraping by but hardly trying
what will it take to get me out of bed
when half the check goes to rent
the other half goes to debt

I should be out looking for another job
Instead I stumble home

Another day not trying
there's no one left to blame
it's just the routine and the repetition
The routine and the repetition
The routine and the repetition
I've spun out of control



"Magnetic North"

There's been borders and there'll be boundaries
and there's been times misidirection's found me
There's been clear heads and there'll be clean slates
and times we'd find we'd pass the night away thinking

Everyone here hates everyone here
for doing the same thing that they do

There's been new starts and they'll be no sleep
and there's been times when inspiration's found me
and there's been walls built and there's been worse days
and times we'd find we spent the night awake thinking

Everyone here hates everyone here
for doing the same thing that they do

All those people they keep watching me
All those people that hate me
All those people they watch me
All those people are just like me



"Hell Looks A Lot Like L.A."

He got in his car and told himself to drive
gotta leave it all behind if he wants to feel alive
19 and lost and never thought he'd ever leave this place
vacant mind from endless grind so what's to lose anyways
Another fast food job?
Another 8 to 5 day?

Ten minutes and two miles is just a mile too many today
and you can see why it's easy to say
Y'know that hell looks a lot like L.A.

Six months ago was the last she felt alive
moved down from the north and told herself she'd try
18 and lost and never thought this place would change
ignored and bored the same feelings as yesterday
she said it's way too much more than she could take
it's one less car that's in the way

Ten minutes and two miles is just a mile too many today
and you can see why it's easy to say
Y'know that hell looks a lot like L.A.
Y'know that hell looks a lot like L.A.
