#1
and the end of the verse is all i can see
and the love songs come alive at night
and try to kill me!
and the chords are snapped
and the strings are loose.
and this whole damn guitar
was built like a noose.

and i sold my soul,
aiming for control
it just dug a hole
and you'll never know.

and the end of the song is all i can see
and the love songs come alive and attack me!
and it's a scary place, this FM dial
it's a scary place where i'll chill a while
it's a scary sound, this skater style
and it's a scary film to have on file.

and i sold my home
aiming for control
and to escape the cat
dead in the road.

and the end of the album is all i see
and the love songs are alive and they don't like me
and the chords are sour
and the strings are tight
and the tuner's broke
and so is the mic.

and i smelled my sole
and i'll let you know
takes the whole dead cat
to stink up this **** hole.

and i lost control
and i'll let you know
when i'm here again
i won't ever let go.


you know when you and your girl have that really rough "is this over" patch? but you both still want it so you know it isn't really, but a lot of **** happened and it seems like it would be? but you're still not talking and you have too much time and you kind of wander around in your world and feel a bit like it's all some grim caricature and you hate everything and you feel like you've completely lost your mind? THAT is this song.
