Track Name: Boyfriend
I am not a man
I am just a boyfriend
Walking hand in hand
Otherwise I can't stand
Up for myself
Or anybody else
I don't wanna talk about it
Keep it to myself (x3)

I am not a man
I am just a boyfriend
I'm your biggest fan
And if you need a transplant
I'd give my heart
Liver and my lungs
Cerebellum, spinal cord
My trachea, my tongue (x3)

In the attic once again
'Cause every creature needs a friend
And there's still some I haven't met
'Cause every creature needs a pet

I am not a man
I am just a boyfriend
Everything I am
Has now become a problem
Life in the swell
It's a loving, living hell
I don't wanna fight about it
Keep it to myself (x6)
Track Name: Scream and Shine
You wanna cause me loads of pain
You wanna eat my soul and brains
Let me tell you now what I believe
You wanna wear my heart on your sleeve
I wanna be your voodoo doll
I wanna get you up against the wall
I wanna see you on Saturday
I wanna see you in the very worst way

(One day we'll)
Never have to wait again
Never running late again
While there is only so much I can do
Baby, I would burn the world for you

You wanna be my valentine
You wanna make me scream and shine
You wanna be my antidote
And the design on the blade that opens my throat
You wanna take me out sometime
I'll hold your place in the checkout line
You wanna talk about philosophy
While we watch static on TV

(One day we'll)
Never have to wait again
Never running late again
While there is only so much I can do
Baby, I would burn the world for you
Track Name: Would You Tell Me If I Was A Ghost?
Would you tell me if I was a ghost?
Would you tell me?
Would you tell me?
Would you tell me?
I wanna know

Would you tell me by letter or by phone?
Or would you tell it to me
As you were looking through me?
Put another movie in
Let's start another show

Would you tell me if I was a ghost?
Would you tell me?
Would you tell me?
Would you tell me?
I wanna know

Would you chauffeur me down to the West Coast?
And break it nice and easy
If only you could see me
If only you could see me
I wanna know

Would you show me the way to my headstone?
In the reanimated cemetery
Where my father will prepare me
Carry on, my friend
It's time I headed home

I got family up there, I'm not scared
No, I
No, I
No, I know
I ain't fucking scared

Okay, maybe just a little
Track Name: I Like Sleeping Alone
I, I like sleeping
Upside down
I am the king of sleep
And the pillow is my crown

I, I like sleeping
Next to you
But most of all
I like Sleeping

Sleeping alone

I, I like dreaming
Of UFO's
I like shaving my head
When it's 11 below

I, I like sleeping
Next to you
But most of all
I like Sleeping

Sleeping alone
Track Name: Brain Sandwich
I want to eat your brains
I want to gain your knowledge
I want to eat your brains
So I don't have to pay for college

I want to carry on
I want to carry over
I want to swim inside
A sea of cinnamon and soda

I want to fucking dance
So play my fucking song
I am the reason why
We cannot all just get along

I want to meet your friends
I want to fucking party
I am already dead
But I just wanna be somebody

I wanna bury some
Ideas in your garden
I need a shovel and a sandwich
So I went and bought 'em

I've been to Minnesota
Dried up in Oklahoma
You want a cigarette?
Nah, I'll just have an orange cream soda
Track Name: You Called Me Scum
I took my time
You took me home
I went back out
So I could roam
I broke your heart
Also my own
And now I'm old
And all alone

I wasted money
You saved me some
I spent it all
On dope and rum
You called me sick
I called me dumb
I called your name
You called me scum

I went to church
The other day
I saw you there
You looked away
The song is over
No more chords are left to play
I sat in silence
And I watched you pray

I wasted money
You saved me some
I spent it all
On crack and rum
You called me sick
I called me dumb
I called your name
You called me scum

Aw, fuck it
Track Name: If I Go To Bed Early, I'll Die Young
I always leave the water running
When I brush my teeth
The earth is gonna dry up
And it's all because of me
There's tires in the river
And there's needles in the sea
I jumped in with two eyeballs
And I left the beach with three

Left with three (x3)

My brother's digging trenches
In the California sun
My sister's at McDonald's
And my cousin's running guns
My father's unemployable
My mother works all day
My step-mom is a genius
Working for the CIA

CIA (x3)

If I go to bed early
I'll die young

Evil in the scrambled eggs
Evil in your head
Evil in the cotton
In the sheets upon your bed
Evil in the people you see
At the corner store
Evil in the sandwich
That you ate the night before

Give me more (x3)

Evil in the sun's embrace
Evil in the shade
Evil in the money
That you have and have not made
Evil in the voices living
In your telephone
You trace the call and find out
It came from inside your home

Evil bones (x3)

If I go to bed early
I'll die young

But if I never go to bed
And if that means I'll never rest
Then maybe I can stretch the time
And trick my mind
And stay alive
For quite some time to come
Track Name: Strange Son
I want to know the secrets
That you're taking to your grave
I want to know the reason
Why you came around here

I would like to be the one
To cook your meals
And clean your guns
I would like to be your son

Soon
You'll understand it by and by
You want to know the reason
Why I changed
Son
You'll see when you're as old as I
The best things in your life
Were always strange

The last time that I saw you
You were bursting into flames
I thought I heard you calling out to me
But I forgot my name
So I didn't know, for sure

In the dark, you look like someone else I used to know
You look like how I feel Sundays
In the melted moonlight as our bones begin to grow
You know, you could have it all someday
(Yes, we almost had it all)

Soon
You'll understand it by and by
You want to know the reason
Why I changed
Son
You'll see when you're as old as I
The best things in your life
Were always strange
