Track Name: Love in the Movies
So if you see the tears in my eyes, you will know it's time
'cause I never show emotion like this and I'm
not about to start
unless i see the end of three years sneaking up on my heart.

I've thrown every last penny into wishing wells
and it might come true, it's just too early to tell
or i might write a check just to find i'm in debt.
I spent my last cent hoping that you'd come back to me.


This is all we've ever shown
'cause it's all we've ever known


The lights, the set,
The lies, the sex,
The life, the death,
The day that you left me
The height, the depth,
The right to reject,
The ride that sent me right over the edge and

Oh, baby baby, please tell me you hate me,
if it makes this easier for you.
Oh, baby baby, please burry me six feet deep,
if it makes it easier.


This is all we've ever shown
'cause it's all we've ever known


Sure, it's love in the movies, cutie
sue me, I'm just not an actor.
You can stab or shoot me
I am through defending a disaster.
The stage is set, but the star's not showing
so cue the canned laughter.
I think all the drama is
just starting to shoot through my head.

I'm taking a second to make a decision
to break up all faker relationships.
The greater deception the devil has told
is making me believe that you are not a witch.
You say that you gave me the key to your heart,
would you tell me what I should be doing with it,
just to make you perceive you're not better than me?
Just forget it, I've finally had it with all of this.

This is all we've ever shown
'cause it's all we've ever known
Track Name: SheDevil
Welcome to the streets, babe
Don't you know it's demon hunting season
Your wings aint fooling anyone
'Cause i can see your teeth and
Your eyes shine in the dead of night with
The neon glow they reflected from the bar light

And maybe next time,
Baby I'll bet I'll have my guard up,
But i just wasn't prepared
All i remember is we started to fight
Sipping blood and wine and water on a Sunday night


I got a hot hot glance from a cold shedevil
All I know about her is she melts my soul
I got a hot hot glance from a cold shedevil
All i know about her is she makes me lose control


Oh no. We are all
So alone at this party full of people, but it's
All we've ever known,
So we'll go and drink our body weight in water, blood, and alcohol

And maybe next time,
Baby I'll bet i'll have my guard up,
But i just wasn't prepared
All i remember is i kissed you goodnight
You cut my hair and you stole my sight


I got a hot hot glance from a cold shedevil
All I know about her is she melts my soul
I got a hot hot glance from a cold shedevil
All i know about her is she makes me lose control

The People Don't Make Music
Track Name: Alive and Impersonal
I'm still not a rapper
I'm out of my element
I can't simply speak in a
rhyme just for the ___ of it
I can't say what's on my mind and make it
poetic, prophetic, direct or indirect
it all spills out pathetic

pathetic synthetic lives
we spend our time
whining about so-called problems
that effect our so-called rights
you say, technology let you down again?
man, I'd like to see you invent something
the next time you feel so entitled.

vitally entitled,
I think that should be the title of
our impatient generation
or at least the motto,
but then, what the heck do I know
when the only book around here left to read
is a streaming wall of faces spewing bile? it's a
dramatic, grammatic, exaggerant
steaming pile of excrement.
What will be next, once it's annihilated?
Maybe we'll all go back to living our lives,
but more likely we'll find a new way to "like" and violate this one

It's alive and impersonal
This is alive and impersonal
Coming at you alive and impersonal
This is alive and impersonal
It's irreversible.

This is
alive and impersonal
we graduated from debate team
without any argument or hesitation
Just stated the first thing that came to mind
It happened to be right
or at least compelling enough for us to accept for a short time
A sure sign of intelligent life
like grabbing that mic
and spitting in it right
but we're doing it wrong
when the songs don't have any meaning
but the kids still sing along

with every hip hop and pop and rock and whatnot tantrum anthem
spamming the radio waved handgun
can't get their attention?
riddle them with ritalin and make them understand

this is a classic fight
Under the glow of neon lights
let's rent innocence for 2 cents
we know what they want, so we'll pass it right
in front of their face til the bait they bite
we reel them in til they're hooked for life
they loose their mind or they loose their sight
still we ask stupid questions like

Dear internet,
tell me if I should like this music
tell me if I really do like this music
tell me if I'm allowed to like this music
how can I know what's good if you don't do this?

It's alive and impersonal
This is alive and impersonal
Coming at you alive and impersonal
This is alive and impersonal
It's irreversible.

If creation is a joke
then I guess you and I are the punchline
If survival of the fittest explains our existence
how is any american still alive

We thrive on dependence
rely on the fence
to hold us high enough to pretend we've already found heaven
We take pride in the fact
we don the brazen faith of
the united states of an arrogant wasteland

and I am no acceptation

but I'm sorry, I can not apologize
for acknowledging the way we devalue this life
Whether I speak or I keep what I think inside me
You'll find sleeping giants all rise when it's time

but there's time
We're alive and this life is designed
for far more than our minds could ever try to realize
so stop the presses
our words aren't impressive
let's honor the author and live our life left less

It's alive and impersonal
(when everything we know is everything we don't)
This is alive and impersonal
(when mind control can be bought and sold so low)
Coming at you alive and impersonal
(we manufacture worlds and we recycle souls)
This is alive and impersonal
It's irreversible.
Track Name: How I Met Your Mother
Cut me off
I'll still keep coming back for more 'cause 
All I want is attention
Rejection quickly turns affection
If you let it become more,
I will make it that much more with you

Lock me out
I've still got the keys to your house
I come around on the weekend 
While you're sleeping I will sneak in
Just to stand beside your bed
and make sure you're still breathing

You've got to know it's nothing to be concerned with
It's just innocent infatuation

Oh, everyone is a liar
I'm not just anyone
I'm yours

Let's tie the knot. Why not?
You know we've got a good thing going
I'll see to it that you're treated
With only the best. Dress to impress
It's all within reach
If you'd stop changing your number
It would be a lot easier to talk to you

I'm just a white knight from Camelot
Got the hots 
for the long haired maiden in distress over yonder

Just let me do my duty

Oh gracious god-like beauty

How can I save you from the lair
If you keep cutting your beautiful hair?

Oh, everyone is a liar
I'm not just anyone
I'm yours
Oh, everyone is a nightmare
I'm not just anyone
I'm yours

So when we talk, let me talk

Let me say 
what i gotta say before you shut me up

I get a little tongue tied

I've just got so much on my mind

I don't mean to be alarming, it's just i

i think I'm in love with you

Oh, maybe i'm wrong,
but i'm not

Oh, everyone is a liar
I'm not just anyone
I'm yours
Oh, everyone is a nightmare
I'm not just anyone
I'm yours
