Track Name: Don't Get Me Wrong
don't get me wrong
you're nice and all
i dont mean to make you sad
but if i do it's just too bad, now

do not get me wrong

it's not your fault
it's not my fault
i took a lesson from the past
romantic feelings do not last, now

do not get me wrong

i'm a solo sexual, it's a choice i made
though it may be just a phase
i dont think i
ever will want you

you humans don't
make any sense
why do you necessitate
someone to help you masturbate, now

do not get me wrong

you're all the same
you'll never change
i can't see a reason why
a girl can't live without a guy, now

do not get me wrong

i'm a solo sexual, it's a choice i made
though it may be just a phase
i dont think i
ever will want you

[instrumental]

i'm a solo sexual, it's a choice i made
though it may be just a phase
i dont think i
ever will want you

don't get me wrong
you're nice and all
i dont mean to make you sad
but if i do it's just too bad, now

do not get me wrong

it's not your fault
it's not my fault
i took a lesson from the past
romantic feelings do not last, now

do not get me wrong

i'm a solo sexual, it's a choice i made
though it may be just a phase
don't want you
Track Name: Search for Quaid
[chorus:]
now it's the search for quaid
i wont forget that friend that i made
where in the world could he be (could he be)
where in the world could he be (could he be)

i do know that he moved away
his stupid dad was being gay
i dont know why he will not call
he moved to kingwood, that was all

[chorus]

he used to be here in the band
he played the guitar with his hand
he was not that good anyway
i'm almost glad he moved away

[chorus]

if quaid heard what i just said
he'd want to beat up on my head
i wish he had not moved away
but on guitar he could not play

[chorus]

he was a real good skateboarder
he's going to go pro i'm sure
can he land 360 flip now?
we've gotta go find quaid somehow

[break down]

now it's the search for quaid
the search for quaid
we gotta go
find quaid right now
Track Name: All the Same
you don't need studs, you don't need leather
you don't need plaid, you don't need checkers
you don't need pins, you don't need buttons
don't serve a purpose so it's good for nothin'

crooked trucker hat and baggy jeans
you can't explain to me what it means
brand new shoes with checkered laces
all the same clothes but with different faces

fashion ain't rebellion, it comes from within
you say you wanna be different
but you look just the same
you're just not interesting enough
to be the center of attention
without wearing goofy clothes

you don't know nothin' and you never will
you don't know nothin' cuz your brain is ill
you wouldn't know music if it
came up and bit ya
you think you'll like one kind of music forever

you don't need "punk," you don't need "emo"
you don't need "metal," and you don't need "techno"
they're all just names, they don't mean nothin'
it's all music, it's just all music

classification is insane
it just creates conflict and segregation
don't focus on the genre, focus on the art
nothin' matter, it's all the same

you don't need studs, you don't need leather
you don't need plaid, you don't need checkers
you don't need pins, you don't need buttons
don't serve a purpose so it's good for nothin'

crooked trucker hat and baggy jeans
you can't explain to me what it means
brand new shoes with checkered laces
all the same clothes but with different faces

fashion ain't rebellion, it comes from within
you say you wanna be different
but you look just the same
you're just not interesting enough
to be the center of attention
without wearing goofy clothes
Track Name: Time to Leave
i dont belong here, i know i don't belong here
so i'm goin' to leave this place
i know you do not want me here
your words i do not have to hear
so i'm gonna leave your beautiful face

i'm not gonna waste my time and wait for you to say
that you don't want me as a friend
you don't want me to stay
i know you are just too nice, so i'm gonna
save you some time

i'm not a stupid fool who thinks you
think that i am cool
i know that it is just not true
maybe if i leave after a while you will want me too
[2x]
Track Name: Never Be Like You
i don't wanna be so wrong
i don't wanna smoke a bong
i don't wanna take a drink
i don't wanna fill the sink, and

[chorus:]
i dont wanna be a skater boy
i just wanna be a guy who skates
conformity is just not true
never gonna be a stupid prep like you

i just want to play guitar
i just want to sing summore
i just wanna play the drums
i just wanna dress like a bum, and

[chorus]

i just want to ride my board
i just want to play some chords
i don't wanna be real bad
i don't wanna be real mad, and

[chorus]

i don't want to levitate
i don't know where to begin
i don't want to screw some slut
i don't wanna see her but, and

[chorus]

ooo!
Track Name: North Korea
look at north korea
braggin' and a boastin' bout their
weapons of mass destruction
that's just great, there's not doubt in our minds
that the words they say are true
they got nukes

north korea north korea [3x]
north korea

now look at iraq
we got their country beat up for a so-called reason
they are supposed to have big weapons
just like the ones of the country forementioned

north korea north korea [3x]
north korea

look at the US
we do not seem to care where the real threat it
it lies in north korea, instead we attack iraq
cuz they're supposed to have the
weapons of destruction

north korea north korea [3x]
north korea

look at north korea
braggin' and a boastin' bout their
weapons of mass destruction
that's just great, there's not doubt in our minds
that the words they say are true
they got nukes

north korea north korea [3x]

Track Name: Bull Fighter
Our time is running out, defeat the enemy.
Track Name: Prom Queen
who's that walking down the street
looks like someone better than me
who's that walking down the hall
looks like prom queen havin' a ball

styles change and she goes right with it
her outfit's getting more "punk" every day
people used to make fun of these clothes
now it is the coolest thing to wear

prom queen wanna be just like me
prom queen wanna be on tv
prom queen wanna wear the clothes
she used to think were stupid
prom queen wanna be with the times
prom queen wanna be start that shines
prom queen calling herself "punk"
because that's what she saw on the tv
Track Name: No Hardcore Anymore
i don't dress punk for you
i dress punk for me
i'm just doin' what i want
why don't ya just leave me be

[chorus:]
and that's the difference between
hardcore and poser
and as you can clearly see
there's no hardcore anymore

we don't want expensive clothes
that's not what it's about
torn up jeans and a crappy t-shirt
and shoes that are worn out

[chorus]

punk and skating aint the same
if you think so you are dumb
one involves riding a board
the other's just bein' a bum

[chorus]

i don't dress punk for you
i dress punk for me
i'm just doin' what i want
why don't ya just leave me be

[chorus 2x]
Track Name: 1,000 Dead
one thousand-plus soldiers are dead in iraq
because our stupid president told them to attack
fighting bravely overseas for a lost cause
this kinda president should be against the law

our brothers and our sisters are killing people now
our sons and our daughters are showing us how
a president can screw up big and get away with it
we need to dig an impeachment pit

[chorus:]
1000 dead
it makes no sense to me
how much more stupid could a president be?
we need to open up our eyes
and look at what we've done
it won't be long until iraq is not the only one

the bush administration has been lying to your face
not to mention that he cheated
in the presidential race
he told us that saddam hussein
was planning an attack
and so, based on a lie we went to war with iraq

saddam hussein had nothing to
do with what we saw, on september eleventh
as we dropped our jaws
he didn't want to kill us and he didn't really care
but still we sanctioned him for weapons
that were never there

[chorus]
[instrumental]

one thousand-plus soldiers are dead in iraq
because our stupid president told them to attack
fighting bravely overseas for a lost cause
this kinda president should be against the law

our brothers and our sisters are killing people now
our sons and our daughters are showing us how
a president can screw up big and get away with it
we need to dig an impeachment pit

[chorus 2x]
Track Name: Land of the Free
politicians
yeah they're all the same
can't tell one from the other
that's why there's no point in voting

land of the free

republicans, democrats
it's just a name
they may seem to want different things
in reality they'd be happy either way

democracy
hypocrisy
what does this mean
land of the free

politicians just want money
they don't care about you or me
we're all living in this country
we just call it "land of the free"

yeah we may have different views
about conspiracy, corruption
i really don't feel like arguing
just gonna have to close your ears cuz here i go

democracy
hypocrisy
what does this mean
land of the free

i stand by my accusations
though i dont support them with reason
just look at the goals of politicians
you'll see despite some differences
they're exactly the same

democracy
hypocrisy
what does this mean
land of the free
