Track Name: Drunk Girl
Sit on down here right next to me
Look me in the eye but you cannot see
Sitting alone at a party can be hell
and I'm sure you really mean well

Hey drunk girl, don't bother me
Drunk girl, just leave me be
Drunk girl, just go away
Find somewhere else to play.

You say you wanna hear me sing
But sloppy drunk lovin' just ain't my thing
You seem like you really wanna get far
I just wanna get back to my car

Hey drunk girl, don't bother me
Drunk girl, just leave me be
Drunk girl, just go away
Find somewhere else to play.

Don't you come around here
Your breasts are out and you smell like beer
Nibbling on that pizza like a rat
There ain't no way I'm touching that

Hey drunk girl, don't bother me
Drunk girl, just leave me be
Drunk girl, just go away
Find somewhere else to play.

Your glazed over drunken eyes
Something I just wanna despise
but I could give you a chance in the end
Oh wait, here comes your boyfriend

Hey drunk girl, don't bother me
Drunk girl, just leave me be
Drunk girl, just go away
Find somewhere else to play.
Track Name: Paper Pusher
Don't walk by my office talk shit and be gone
Every day I put my white shirt on
Slave clothes baby

You walk by my office always wearing a frown
Who'd ever think you'd get gunned down

I ain't no paper pusher, not anymore
I signed my resignation with blood on the floor
You said give give give, and I always gave.
Now I'm gonna piss on your grave

Said did you do your work, and well I lied
I'm gonna go to the drawer by my side
got me a flask of whiskey and a colt .45
swig it down, cock it back and you feel alive

I ain't no paper pusher, not anymore
I signed my resignation with blood on the floor
You said give give give, and I always gave.
Now I'm gonna piss on your grave

You beg for your life
I guess all your money is going to your ex-wife
(and you hate that bitch, baby)
breakroom, coffee machine is empty
I've got the DEVIL IN ME

I ain't no paper pusher, not anymore
I signed my resignation with blood on the floor
You said give give give, and I always gave.
Now I'm gonna piss on your grave

I'm gonna get back my balls
I ain't gonna answer your calls
I'm gonna re-paint the walls
I'm gonna pull a biggie fuckin' smalls!
Track Name: Little Dick Boy
I wanna know why, you're with that guy
that treats you like shit, while he's up in your slit

But you've got your own, little dick boy
I'm so glad you're his worthless fuck toy
I could never be half the man he was
or bring you flowers, just because

I'm not really bitter, maybe I'm just a quitter
But I sure do get sick, of your stroking his ego
there's always something, been going on too long
as your best friend, this really needs to end

But you've got your own, little dick boy
I'm so glad you're his worthless fuck toy
I could never be half the man he was
or bring you flowers, just because

What will you do, when he's through with you
what will go on after that, other than your ass getting fat
and if it does last, you'll be stuck in the past
thinking bout when it was fun, thinking bout my love gun


But you've got your own, little dick boy
I'm so glad you're his worthless fuck toy
I could never be half the man he was
or bring you flowers, just because

I won't be a jerk, I'm sorry you got hurt
life is full of new leases, guess i'll pick up the pieces
Track Name: I'm Waiting
When a car drives by my heart starts to race
I try to go to sleep but it just ain't the case
Took me so long to see all these things
and I'll be damned if my phone never rings

I'm Waiting and waiting, for you, its true
I'm waiting and waiting, for you, just you
I'm waiting and waiting, breathing hard all night
I'm waiting and waiting, for you to make it alright

When you were beside me it felt so good
slept better than I ever knew I could
the floor was hard and the room was cold
wouldn't trade it for nothing truth be told

I'm Waiting and waiting, for you, its true
I'm waiting and waiting, for you, just you
I'm waiting and waiting, breathing hard all night
I'm waiting and waiting, for you to make it alright

Maybe its just that I don't want to see
You can have no real interest in me
but I just can't believe that it grates me like nails
like a great friend told me “Love never fails”

I'm Waiting and waiting, for you, its true
I'm waiting and waiting, for you, just you
I'm waiting and waiting, breathing hard all night
I'm waiting and waiting, for you to make it alright
You made it alright.
Track Name: 600 miles
Six hundred miles just ain't nothing
To keep me away from your face
Six hundreds miles from your lovin
just needing a little bit of space

I'm not handsome and I yell a lot
but your smile seems to hit the spot
My songs aren't fancy, but they get the job done
Seeing your face is like looking in the sun
Seeing your face is like looking in the sun

driving all night's just like walkin'
when your mind is bout to burst
been 2 weeks since we'd been talkin'
that kind of silence is just the worst

I'm not handsome and I yell a lot
but your smile seems to hit the spot
My songs aren't fancy, but they get the job done
Seeing your face is like looking in the sun
Seeing your face is like looking in the sun

took the risk said what you need to say
I can't ever forget that saturday
I always believed the sun would blind me
in the last gleaming I knew you'd find me

I can't understand how to enjoy it
how to know I got what I need
I can't understand, but i'll employ it
but please just take heed.

I'm not handsome and I yell a lot
but your smile seems to hit the spot
My songs aren't fancy, but they get the job done
Seeing your face is like looking in the sun
Seeing your face is like looking in the sun
Track Name: Feel Bad
If it makes you feel bad why would you do it?
If it tastes bitter why then would you chew it?
If it makes you feel bad why would you do it?
My naked eye, sees right through it.

You sneak around like a dog that pissed on the rug
I can feel the guilt inside you when we hug
The disrespect from your lies
Is much worse than who's between your thighs

If it makes you feel bad why would you do it?
If it tastes bitter why then would you chew it?
If it makes you feel bad why would you do it?
My naked eye, sees right through it.

how awkward is that eye contact?
When all your lies are stacked
They make a pretty shocking pile
Haven't spoke a true word in a while

If it makes you feel bad why would you do it?
If it tastes bitter why then would you chew it?
If it makes you feel bad why would you do it?
My naked eye, sees right through it.

Will the days just go, by and by
always wondering just exactly why
desperation rears its ugly head
I hope we realize before we're dead

If it makes you feel bad why would you do it?
If it tastes bitter why then would you chew it?
If it makes you feel bad why would you do it?
My naked eye, sees right through it.
Track Name: I Know
You think you're so cute in that little skirt
well the words that you saying they really do hurt
But I know, oh I know
I'm atleast (number) times, better than that

everything you say seems to just be a scheme
lies are the oreo and you're the cream
But I know, oh I know
I'm atleast (number) times, better than that

I'm stomping my foot real hard as I play my song
and I know you're full of shit and for way too long
But I know, oh I know
I'm atleast (number) times, better than that

I was just some kind of psychotic bastard
no matter what you say I was going faster
But I know, oh I know
I'm atleast (number) times, better than that

cling yourself to the safest bet
say i'm the best guy that you ever met
But I know, oh I know
I'm atleast (number) times, better than that

say what you want but cuts like a dull dull knife
and I was the best thing you had in your life
But I know, oh I know
I'm atleast (number) times, better than that

Track Name: Whistling By
She's whistling right by me
well she's whistling can't you see
won't even stop to say hi
cause she's so busy thinkin bout how, thinkin bout how she gonna say goodbye

We coulda been close
not to sound verbose
pushed and push and I pushed back
and then I realized I didn't lack, didn't lack you.

She's whistling right by me
well she's whistling can't you see
won't even stop to say hi
cause she's afraid tosay good bye

can't stand on my own
gotta put you on a throne
things got way too petty
but now I tell you I, I feel pretty whoa!

She's whistling right by me
well she's whistling can't you see
won't even stop to say hi
cause she's so busy thinkin bout how, thinkin bout how she gonna say goodbye
Track Name: Federule
Are you ready, well get your eyes on
Something new coming on the horizon
Laws gonna cha nge and make you happy
unless you're the minority but don't be sappy

Life and liberty are just a scam
consensus is what really makes a man
They know whats best for me and you
Nanny state fits like a worn out shoe

Fed, fed fed Federule
fed fed fed Federule
Making life run just like High School

Regulate Health and Medicine too.
Best way to get to regulate you.
The army is controlled by just one man,
I dare you to try to make a stand.

Ruby Ridge and Waco were sad but true.
They got the guns and money what can you do?

Fed, fed fed Federule
fed fed fed Federule
Pound it in your head till you start to drool

All these things can make you pissed.
No need to become a pessimist.
Just hold tight to what you still have.
Fell the government go for the grab.
We can still speak and man I yell
All your regulations can go to hell!

Fed, fed fed Federule
fed fed fed Federule
Fear and power are their best tool.

Don't you assume i'm the kind of man
that wants a big ole war with Iran
Obama was born here in the states
and he ain't the sole cause of our fates.

Started before him after the civil war.
Carpet baggers here to settle the score.
One thing to keep all above.
They can't regulate thoughts and love.

Though they wanna.
Track Name: I Want a Girlfriend
I want a girlfriend who's pretty and sweet
can't be no rabbit gotta eat some meat
a girl who wants to burn down the malls
and she barks right back at her cat calls.
I want a girlfriend who's pretty and sweet

I want a girlfriend who ain't afraid to pay
knows that soulja boy is totally gay
listens to ice-t when she wants to kick back
and doesn't get mad when i stare at her rack
I want a girlfriend who ain't afraid to pay

I want a girlfriend who's a little odd
knows that I'm a rocknroll god
a girl who's just a little mean
but when I'm with other girls she don't get green
I want a girlfriend who's a little odd

I want a girlfriend who always says please
but she's much more polite when she's on her knees
don't look at me I didn't put her down there
she's the one says "hey pull my hair"
I want a girlfriend who always says please

I want a girlfriend who ain't gonna change me
ain't gonna try to rearrange me
listen I'm just the way I am
so get out of my face goddamn
I just want a girl who ain't gonna change

I want a girlfriend who needs evidence
ain't afraid to sit on the fence
but if you try to sell her your book
she'll spit snort and give you a look
I want a girlfriend who needs evidence

I want a girlfriend who's pretty and sweet
can't be no rabbit gotta eat some meat
a girl who wants to burn down the malls
and she barks right back at her cat calls.
I want a girlfriend who's pretty and sweet

But ladies, don't throw me a bone
cause I'm just happy singing alone
