Track Name: VV!
I got something in my pocket
could it kill me? could you stop it?
I never told you quite how I feel
how it's so real, except I'm in a dream

you can run me over with your motorcycle
and I just won't mind
please forgive me if I get excited
Alison! I love it when you're violent

I make music in a basement
for a living, ain't been paid yet
but I'm certain that it's coming
you taught me to believe in the one and only
I am the one and only

you can push me out the hotel window
I know it won't hurt
please forgive me if I get excited
Alison! you know you're just my kind of girl...

and it hurts and it hurts and it hurts
to see you with him and know you're never coming home
and it burns and it burns and it burns
on my shoulder, where I scratched your name in
and to think in a year or two maybe I could be someone
someone you'd care to remember
Track Name: Shoot To Kill!
my shoot to kill orders just came through
and I don't know what I'm gonna do
'cause I have never killed a man before

but I'm keeping my weapon loaded
I'm keeping my vision straight
hoping I'll stay sober for another day

the past is over! the past is over!
I had to end it! it's falling over

and you know, darling don't you? I took a shine to you
but you know, doll it's forever a fine line with me
but I'll hold you through the night!
I will hold you through the hard times!
ain't nothing ever gonna come between us
ain't nothing ever gonna slow me down

I keep a semi-automatic in my bed
I sleep with the lights on for good luck
and I've never been out of this trainwreck town for even
a second a second a second a second a second
Track Name: I get released!
I told you once, I told you twice
I told you a hundred thousand times
I'm not tired of counting!
and my voice is sore from shouting!
but I guess I'll keep on shouting 'cause

I've got breath left in my lungs
and I damn well deserve some fun
and I have never met nobody with a body like you

oh, don't I know we are so much better than this
tripped up, pushed down, falling over our heads and shoulders
and oh, don't I know it's looking like a heartache situation
and I can't take it any more

if I hold you baby real close to me
do you get scared or feel guilty?
and if I touch your lips, on the count of 3
will you tell me sweetly that I'm

not another boy who holds your hand
not another boy who takes your picture
not another boy without a plan
not another boy, not another no no no no

'cause I know we are so much better than this
tripped up, pushed down, falling over our heads and shoulders
and oh, don't I know it's looking like a heartache situation
and I...

I get released
Track Name: Sleep Debt!
I need to stop sleeping!
because there's only so much you can do
when you're not sleeping
and I'm only gonna be alive a little while
only so much time I can afford to waste

so I'll stay up and I'll beat the rush, beat the rush

but something comes creeping
through a gap in the middle of the night!
and I've got a minor injury
there's a hole in my head! I don't know if I can make it
oh uh-oh, oh uh-oh

but I'll stay up and I'll beat the rush, beat the rush,
I'll stay up, stay up

this is what I need
what I need need
this is what I want
