Track Name: What Do You Wanna Do With Your Life?
Ever since I was young
People have been saying "Son,
Go to school and study hard.
Make lots of dough,
You will go far."

Instill your ideas of success
Just because your life's a mess
You try and live your life through me
Just because your life's lacking

What do you wanna do with your life?
Whatever the hell I feel like
What do you wanna do with your life?
What I please, it is my right

So take a look at yourself
'Cause your time is running out
Unneeded pressure day after day
I'm gonna go my own way

What do you wanna do with your life?
Whatever the hell I feel like
What do you wanna do with your life?
What I please, it is my right
Track Name: I Hate Small Talk
"How are you doing?"
"I'm doing fine"
You dont care
So let's not waste time

"How was your weekend?"
"It was pretty good"
I don't care
SInce when are we friends?

I hate small talk, I hate small talk

I want something real
Or let's not talk
Talking to you is like
Talking to a robot

Stop interrogating me
You don't listen
I don't need your
insincere interest

I hate small talk, I hate small talk

MY LIFE MISSION, ISN'T WATCHING TELEVISION
CAN'T WE STOP THIS PSEUDO CONVERSATION?
IF YOU'RE GENUINE, I WILL PAY ATTENTION
IT'S NOT THAT DIFFICULT AND DID I MENTION that..

I hate small talk, I hate small talk
Track Name: Watch Out For The Quiet Ones
Watch out for the quiet ones
You don't know what you've done
If you keep on messing with me
You won't wake up 'til next week

If you know what's good for you
You'll stop and say "sorry" too
You throw out insults by the bunch
I can only take so much

It keeps on building up
One of these days you're gonna get yours
You keep on pissing me off
You'll see a side that you've never seen before

I'm a pretty laid back guy
Until this point I let it slide
Now that time has come and gone
Now you've gone and pissed me off

So you'd better run and hide
I think something's snapped inside
Reasoning with you? I'm done
Watch out for the quiet ones

It keeps on building up
One of these days you're gonna get yours
You keep on pissing me off
You'll see a side that you've never seen before
Track Name: P*ssywhipped
Every time we hang out you ain't go no dough
Where the hell does your money go?
You wanna come over, your girl says no
She just paged you, you'd better go

I'm telling you this as a good friend
I don't like your fucking girlfriend
She always ruins everyone's good time
You just say that "everything is fine"

You really need to get off your ass
And show her who's the fucking boss
Every time you confront her, she starts to sob
You need to tell her "bitch, get a job"

Last week I saw her with another guy
You don't believe me, you think I lie
That's OK, from it she gets a thrill
The whole damned date you were footin' the bill

Pussywhipped
Hey guys I think I'd better go
Pussywhipped
You had better do what you're told

You know that this is really lame
Every day's the same old thing
i think that today is the day
You need to get rid of that stupid dame

So be quiet and listen up
I'm only going to say this once
You need to send her on a permanent trip
Dude, you're fucking pussywhipped

Pussywhipped
Hey guys I think I'd better go
Pussywhipped
You had better do what you're told
Track Name: Procrasturbate
Is it an excuse to never succeed?
Is it an excuse to never fail?
I know that life is limited
Yet I continue to stall
Who knows what I'm waiting for?
What if this is the wrong choice?
What if I can't take it back?
What if this is the right choice?

I can't figure out why
But I can't wait
I can't make up my mind
And I procrastinate

There are way too many questions
And not nearly enough answers
I know I possess the potential
Yet I lack the focus

I can't figure out why
But I can't wait
I can't make up my mind
And I procrastinate

So I put things off and I say tomorrow
Before I know tomorrow is here
I need to wake up and clear my head
Stop making excuses out of fear

I can't figure out why
But I can't wait
I can't make up my mind
And I procrastinate
Track Name: Stop Talking
Did you know that I catch all your lies?
Ever since that day, I stopped listening to what you say
When you say "Guess what I did or who I saw"
All I hear is blah blah blahblahblah blahblahblah

You tell the same stories all the damn time
How you went to jail and committed crime
You never did any of that stupid shit
And nobody I know believes a word of it

'Cuz I'm not listening
So just stop talking
You lie about everything
So just stop talking

You happen to know everyone that's famous
Shut the hell up and fucking save it
You put people to sleep with your stories
Why can't you face that your life is boring?

'Cuz I'm not listening
So just stop talking
You lie about everything
So just stop talking
Track Name: I Wrote This Song in 1999 (Look At Me)
Let's go to the mall and kick it
And listen to Limp Bizkit
Get a sticker that says "Mean people suck"
Ricki Martin fucking rocks

Look at me
I'm trendy

Let's say words like "fly" and "phat"
Get a lowered ride and dress wack
Yo homie, that's tight
I forget, who am I?

Look at me
I'm trendy
Track Name: Back To Basics
Where did it all go wrong?
I hear the same old songs
Does no one see it but me?
Everyone dresses the same
What's with the barricades?
Do you know what I mean?

Look what mommy bought me
At the mall, isn't that neat?
Have you ever heard of do it yourself?
I'm sick of hearing about girls
I'm sick of "punk" being so slow
There's no real punks left

Back to basics,
Let's fucking face it
We lost sight of the original goal
It's the same shit
I can't take it
Personally I can't be sold

The thing that punk was created to rebel against
Is the exact same thing that's destroying it
The thing that punk was created to rebel against
Is the exact same thing that destroyed it
Track Name: We're The Has Beens
I think that we might be washed up
That's OK 'cuz we fucking suck
I don't know how much longer this is gonna last
We're going down pretty fucking fast

I think that we should just give up
Maybe I need to get a real job
I think that we're getting so damn old
That our music is getting slow

We're too old for this shit
We're getting desperate
I think panic's set it
We're The fucking Has Beens
We're getting old and fat
I don't know what we got left
I think panic's set it
We're The fucking Has Beens

Maybe I should go and write some of those hits
For those damned boy band kids
Then I could be filthy fucking rich
Move to L.A. and become a big prick

We're too old for this shit
We're getting desperate
I think panic's set it
We're The fucking Has Beens
We're getting old and fat
I don't know what we got left
I think panic's set it
We're The fucking Has Beens
Track Name: Withdraw
Many times I've tried
Put aside my pride
I'm so sick of compromise
You push and push
And must insist
Upon your ideas of relationships

What is it that you don't understand?
Can't you think beyond yourself?
I don't say purposely hurtful things
Why am I punished for being myself?
Withdraw

Aren't we supposed to be
Friends but we
Argue over trivial shit
I don't know man
If I can
Put up with your double standards

What is it that you don't understand?
Can't you think beyond yourself?
I don't say purposely hurtful things
Why am I punished for being myself?
Withdraw
Track Name: F*cking Idiot
I can't be real and still be me
If you knew me, I'd be your enemy
I tell stories that aren't even mine
I should warn you, I'm a waste of time

Why can't you tell the truth?
Your stories got no proof

I'm not who I really wanna be
My life should be on MTV
I'm a punk rock celebrity
Your songs suck and mine are so unique

Why can't you tell the truth?
Your stories got no proof

Back in highschool I was the man
Me and my band had the masterplan
Now they're gone, me they couldn't stand
I am my own biggest fan

Why can't you tell the truth?
Your stories got no proof
