    Have I become Grath?

    I'm not young anymore(have I become Grath is a better title)

    Have I let myself down?
    Am I still wild and free?
    am I living up to expectations
    of how I wanted life to be?
    Will life be much different
    years from today?
    soon I'll wake up
    with a hair that's grey

    I'm not young anymore
    I'm not young anymore
    I used to be 24
    I used to be young before
    but I'm not young anymore

    Can I still like candy?
    Can I still have a good time?
    is life giving me lemons?
    or is life giving me lime?
    Have I rejected my ideas?
    turned my back on human worth?
    given up on the secular value
    that the meek inherit the earth?

    I know I'm so much younger
    than others, truth to be told
    but I get super bummed out
    that I am getting fucking old

    I'm on a roll today, not sure how to use these lyrics, but maybe I should!

    The great leap backward

    Nuclear war it's time to start the bombing
    drones and planes a new age is comming
    We're standing still it's time to start running
    We've already filled our cup
    If someone wants war, then war it is
    blame it on the authorities
    or blame the minorities
    even if we all messed this up

    We have our premonitions
    we need new definitions
    because we start to lack words
    to describe what's in store
    but I guess we're heading for
    the great leap backward

    Touch for the very last time, like a virgin
    with groin pains and sexual aversion
    like a scared little boy with an old man's perversion
    life's like a buffet or a barbecue
    Ever since we were in our teens
    we lived up to roles and simple dreams
    presented to us in magazines
    and we gotta build muscles too!

    Some cannot afford the rent
    others have millions of dollars spent
    and the other 99%¨
    are joining the occupy movement
    Some say it's just a sign
    of a new depression, a new dark time
    but now your job is on the line
    there's always room for improvement


    My little heart

    This little heart of mine
    is a ghost that always haunts
    you can have it anytime
    anyhow, anywhere you want
    It's so much fun
    and sure is nice
    now everyone
    can get their slice of

    My little heart
    can be easily broken
    My little heart
    keep still before spoken
    it and she and he's a
    thing you can't tear apart
    but everyone can break a piece of
    my little heart

    I've only known you a few hours
    and there's so much to learn
    but if you buy me flowers
    I'll buy you chocolate in return
    But my little heart
    is yours you can take it
    make it a record, make it an art
    go ahead and break it

    My little heart
    I don't know what to do
    with my little heart
    it breaks in two
    it and he and she's a
    thing you can't tear apart
    but everyone can break a piece of
    my little heart

    My little heart
    ah whoah ah whoah oh oh
    My little heart
    Ah whoah ah whoah oh oh


    My little heart
    can be witty and agile
    my little heart
    can be sore and fragile
    she and he and it's a
    thing we can't tear apart
    but everywhere there's bits of
    my little heart

      I'm cheesy!

      I'm such a fool

      I'm such a fool to believe
      in love at first sight
      I'm such a fool to think
      it will happen tonight
      I'm such a fool to think
      I'll love someone all my life
      but I do
      I'm such a fool

      I'm such a fool to look
      at the stars up above
      I'm such a fool to look
      for someone to always think of
      I'm such a fool for thinking
      Someone might want my love
      but I do
      I'm such a fool

      I'm such a fool for searching
      for someone for me
      I'm such a fool for wondering
      who that might be
      I'm such a fool for writing
      pathetic poetry
      but I do
      I'm such a fool

      I'm such a fool for remembering
      someone I miss
      I'm such a fool for pretending
      this is what it is
      I'm such a fool for imagining
      every first kiss
      but I do
      I'm such a fool

        I lost my wallet and then it was found, so I wrote a song about it and it sounds like a love song! Yeah!

        I found you

        I'm so glad I found you
        now I'm glad to be around you
        knowing you'll always be mine
        You won't fall out of my pocket
        I'll be sure to zip lock it*
        and we'll be together all of the time

        You were oh so lost
        and it was my holocaust
        I didn't know what to do
        I could be so much sadder
        but not that doesn't matter
        cuz I found you

        I don't need to remind you
        how hard I tried to find you
        had to think of everywhere I'd been
        that's not my department
        and you held the keys to my apartment
        and I couldn't even get in

        You were oh so gone
        and I lost the stenght to carry on
        then my dream came true
        because you came back
        and my days are no longer black
        because I found you

        * that doesn't make it sound like a love song.

          I also wrote a free verse poem that I liked

          Cold day feeling

          I stare out the window
          I see the world pass by
          through all the laughs and happiness
          I see lots of failure
          It's something we can't get enough of
          I see failure in the eyes of children
          I see failure in a heart that's true
          I see failure in the song you're singing
          I see failure in the American dream
          I see failure in higher education
          I see failure in One Direction hits
          and yes, I see failure in me

          Late at night when streets are empty
          nothing heard is to be seen
          cars pass by to break your heart
          and all I see is fear
          Fear is a man's best friend!
          I feel fear in the eyes of children
          I feel fear in a hear that's true
          I feel fear in the song you're singing
          I feel fear in McDonalds commercials
          I feel fear in the poet
          I feel fear in crowded beaches
          I feel fear in the European song contest
          and yes, I feel fear in me

          We always think that safety comes first
          we keep away from danger
          but danger is a part of us
          it follows us like the plague
          Danger walks among us!
          I sense danger in the eyes of children
          I sense danger in a heart that's true
          I sense danger in the song you're singing
          I sense danger in Walt Disney classics
          I sense danger in happy marriages
          I sense danger in my favorite TV shows
          I sense danger in Orange juice
          I sense danger in the Great Gatsby
          and yes, I sense danger in me

          I walked out the door
          the world is on fire
          there's nowhere to hide
          we got nowhere to go
          all we have left is hope!
          I see hope in the eyes of children
          I see hope in a heart that's true
          I see hope in the song you're singing
          I see hope in an abandoned graveyeard
          I see hope in the great depression
          I see hope in a sunken ship
          I see hope in Edgar Allen Poe
          I see hope in getting F's
          and yes, I see hope in me

            I've gotten a new hobby, I write songs for 50 seconds of summer! maybe they will sing one of them one day! It should be noted(probably in the liner notes) that I wrote all these at TGI Friday's

            Here are the song I've written till now:

            Eating burgers

            Verse 1

            Baby don't you know that I'd like
            to go to a special place tonight
            a place where they sell burgers and fries
            for a most outstanding price
            They have milkshakes and Ron the clown
            His red hair gets me up when I'm down
            gosh how I love Ron
            and you always keep me hanging on

            Chorus

            Let's eat burgers at Mcdonald's
            We'll have big macs and quarter pounders
            We'll get fries just look in my eyes
            and we always get smiled from the folks behind the counters

            Verse 2

            Baby baby I really like you
            Let's listen to Blink 182
            let's go on an awesome date
            We'll listen to the edited E of the state
            I really got the feels
            We can go out for happy meals
            the toys as cool as the food
            they really make me a happy dude

            Shopping!

            Verse 1

            There's a place where I can buy it all
            when I want to go shopping
            A place they have everything
            from pizza to topping
            It's where I bought American idiot
            it got me through my teenage crisis
            they have good moral stands
            and nice proper prices

            Chorus

            We'll go to Walmart!
            It's the best place on earth
            whoah oh oh Walmart
            You'll get your money worth
            If I like a girl
            and she breaks me heart
            I can still go
            to walmart!

            Verse 2

            They have food and snacks
            clothes, books, music, movies
            and those red light specials
            sure are groovy
            I like shopping there
            it won't be beat by any margin
            they have good Christian values
            and sweet religious bargains

            Bridge

            Oh baby shopping at Walmart
            is really fun, it's true
            oh baby when I shop at Walmart
            I think of you

            Going for a ride

            Verse 1

            I'd like to go for a ride
            with you by my side
            I'm sure we could go anywhere
            I know it sucks
            we don't have any bucks
            but with a car like this, who cares?

            Chorus

            You and me and a Ford
            it's really all we can afford
            but we're all right
            You and me and a Ford
            it really struck a cord
            but We'll all right
            baby we're all right

            Verse 2

            Let's get out on the road
            if we don't get it towed
            we can drive it forever
            it's such a nice vehicle
            it's better than a bicycle
            I'm just so glad we're together

            Bridge

            A Ford a Ford
            Henry Ford is an American hero
            Just you and I
            and censored Family guy
            and Robert Deniro

            I also think it's good to spread awareness! And I'm sure this could be their biggest hit!

            Let's fight Ebola!

            Verse 1

            There's a new epidemic
            people are getting sick
            they can't find a cure
            it all seems like a trick
            but there's a drink
            that can change everything
            It's delicious and refreshing
            it can teach the world to sing

            Chorus

            Let's spread awareness!
            Let's not be careless
            ​Let's fight Ebola
            And Let's drink Cola Cola

            Verse 2

            It's made with real ingredients
            and I love whoever made it
            so cold and refreshing
            and it's always carbonated
            I thought Ebola was for the poor
            and I didn't make a fuzz
            but now I've realized
            that it can happen happen to us

              I wrote two songs today! I've kind of had this song stuck in my head since I heard the words" Fifties heartache" and it kind of rips off Sixteen candles and This boy and Donna too, sort of

              50's heartache

              Verse 1

              Fifties heartache ooh ohh ooh ooh
              the sound that my heart makes ooh ooh ooh
              When I'm alone I play D to Bm
              if I am at home or at the diner

              Verse 2

              Fifties heartache and you know it
              It's art for art's sake, but I'm no poet
              Difficult matters of bop shu wop
              songs by the Platters at the hop

              Middle

              I try to forget
              I don't know what to do
              I try to forget
              my fifties heartache for you

              Verse 3

              Fifties heartache rebel without a cause
              strawberry milkshakes with pink and blue straws
              Fries and burgers the Jukebox too
              My Cadillac dries further, it's shiny and new

              Bridge

              Nothing can stop
              My silly kicks
              except the record hop
              in 1956

              Verse 4

              Fifties heartache(Something new)
              The sound that my heart makes(just for you)
              oh how I wonder if our love will be true
              My thoughts they live under a rain cloud of you

              Fifties heartache ooh ooh ooh ooh

              The next song is kind of sick and I got the inspiration from the newest South park episode and I imagined Jello Biafra singing it. It's kind of awful, but I found the idea to be kind of clever.

              Virtual reality

              Chorus

              It's a virtual reality
              It's a virtual reality
              and nothing really matters to me!

              Verse 1

              Bombs are always flying
              people around are dying
              gun fired by soldiers
              children that'll never get any older
              corrupted governments
              destroyed environment
              financial crisis
              Attacks from ISIS
              Who cares?

              Chorus

              Verse 2

              A village without water
              there's hunger and slaughter
              pillage and rape
              and there's no escape
              children molested
              people HIV tested
              Spouses get battered
              does it really matter?
              Who cares?

              Chorus

              Verse 3

              There's mutilation
              and Discrimination
              No justice for all
              just old fashioned morals
              Viruses spreading
              there's a beheading
              dug graves, all but equal
              prisons full of innocent people
              Who cares?

                Best lyrics ever:

                Moptop Christmas

                Verse 1

                Now the Xmas spirit is upon them
                for Tammy, Billy, Laurie and all of them
                On Halloween they were watching the Omen
                Now they are all out building snowmen
                Tammy's got her temper, Billy has his smile
                the Moptop haircut will never go out of style
                They got Rudolph and Santa and Baby Jesus too
                All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth and you

                Chorus

                It's a Moptop Christmas
                Gotta let your spirit rise
                Christmas is in them
                you can see it in their eyes
                Jimmy's drinking eggnog
                Rita's drinking beer
                Have a (happy) Moptop Christmas
                and a Moptop new year

                Verse 2

                Billy wrote a Xmas song
                He made sure it wasn't too long
                Had a smile all over his face
                singing "Frosty's carrot is in the wrong place"
                Jimmy and Rita wants a TV
                Tammy wants and AG-3
                Laurie wants her very first car
                and Billy wants and electric guitar

                Bridge

                A new year is coming
                for the Moptops
                And it'll be a good one
                They make lots of cookies
                sing lots of carols
                it's all done for good fun

                    I don't think BenTm would find the Moptop family offensive!

                      The kingdom of heaven

                      The kingdom of heaven
                      is very far from here
                      it won't be found in 7/11
                      or in this secular, corporate sphere
                      Contraceptives sold in stores
                      Making baby Jesus cry
                      manipulative, liberal whores
                      who say our holy book is a lie

                      He'll always be there
                      you will find your grace in prayer
                      keep your soul free from sin
                      have your faith in the holy one
                      the mother, father and the son
                      and the kingdom of heaven will let you in

                      the Kingdom of heaven will let you in

                      Those who bathe in vanity
                      should have their bottoms kicked
                      the only way for Christianity
                      is obedient and strict
                      The stupid intellectuals
                      will have their lies to tell
                      they say "accept bisexuals"
                      but they don't know they're going to hell

                      There's no way to run
                      when Judgemnent day has come
                      We're all waiting for armegeddon
                      Some believe in science
                      and in mindless self-reliance
                      but those won't get you into heaven

                      Science won't get you into heaven

                      bridge

                      They say they have found
                      that the world is round
                      they say around a burning sun we turn
                      but that won't save them when their souls will burn

                      Abstain from alcohol
                      stay away from sin
                      Church will save your soul
                      join in and sing the hymn
                      he's not here to please us
                      and your soul is filled with sin
                      you can't expect love from Jesus
                      if you won't love him

                      There's no kingdom waiting
                      for those who worship Satan
                      those vile and sinful whores
                      so hold on to your virginity
                      and salute the holy trinity
                      and the kingdom of heaven is yours

                      The kingdom of heaven is yours


                      I'm calling you

                      I had lost my belief in the savior
                      I did no longer feel safe
                      but then I went to Norway
                      which opened the doorway
                      into a new found faith

                      I almost crawled up to Satan
                      I wasn't that hard to convince
                      but I've finally come
                      to a place I can drink rum
                      and we're all confessing our sins

                      Chorus

                      If someone is broke
                      someone else will pay
                      We'll buy each other beer
                      and then we'll pray
                      thanks lord for giving me this place to fall into

                      If someone gets arrested
                      we will pay the bail
                      we'll get wasted
                      from the holy grail
                      Can't you hear me Jesus, I'm calling you

                      I've found what I missed
                      I've started watching porn again
                      Either videos or pictures
                      then I'll read the holy scripture
                      I never thought I'd be born again

                      I've been scared of dying
                      forgot the way of Christ
                      but now I'll have this reunion
                      in this holy communion
                      in Vodka and Bourbon I was Baptized


                      Sadness was upon me
                      I had lost my only idol
                      but through all the sorrow
                      I can see a bright tomorrow
                      with my moonshine and my bible

                      Mother Mary hears me praying
                      and I will never leave her
                      Now I am in Norway
                      and I will have it your way
                      once again, I'm a believer

                        I hummed a song before going to bed last night and I didn't write it down, so I figured if I remembered it when waking up it'd be a good song, so this is the first official Read hard lyric in 2015!

                        If words were

                        If words were money
                        I'd be fucking rich
                        it'd be pretty funny
                        and I could scratch my itch
                        I could save up
                        and pay for all my ills
                        if words were money
                        I could pay my bills

                        if words were love
                        I'd never turn back
                        I would rise above
                        I'd have an aphrodesiac
                        My mind would be made of hearts
                        I would know what to do
                        if words were love
                        I would give it all to you

                        If words were
                        if words were
                        if words were everything
                        if words were
                        if words were
                        if words weren't just to sing
                        If words were everything

                        If words were diamond rings
                        and sparkling stuff that shines
                        all my favorite things
                        wordscavation from literate mines
                        I'd be singing songs
                        and I'd have fun tonight
                        if words were diamond rings
                        I'd make the world more bright

                        if words were actions
                        I would have lots to do
                        no big distraction
                        I'd make it all through
                        I would be busy
                        life would be fun
                        if words were actions
                        I would get it all done

                        If words were happiness
                        I would always smile
                        but then again I'd smile a whole lot less
                        we need breaks every once in a while
                        because we'll never be satisfied
                        with whatever we have
                        if words were happiness
                        I'd sit around and laugh

                        If words were nothing
                        I wouldn't know what to do
                        no turkey, no stuffin'
                        no red or blue
                        I would always tremble
                        and then I would fall
                        if words were nothing
                        I wouldn't have anything at all

                          I thought this song was pretty catchy, not sure if the lyrics are super great though, they're like whatevevs

                          Strange time of year

                          Verse 1

                          It's a strange time of year
                          everything turns dark
                          when sitting by yourself at home
                          is the cure for a broken heart
                          It's 5 below outside
                          and it's started snowing
                          the grass could be nice and green
                          but it isn't showing

                          Pre-Chorus

                          Looks like winter time is here to stay

                          Chorus

                          The snow covers the streets
                          ice has filled the lake
                          a sign says "It's fragile"
                          but it probably won't break
                          It's such a confusing season
                          feels frightening, then it feels safe
                          it's freezing like hell outside
                          but my mind's already in another place

                          Verse 2

                          It's strange time of year
                          but soon it will be spring
                          till then I'll stay up all night long
                          an think about everything
                          If someone could read my mind
                          would it be that interesting?
                          if they wanted to know shit about me
                          they should try DNA testing

                          Pre-chorus

                          Still spting is on it's way!

                          Bridge

                          I feel my head is getting hot
                          even it's 5 below
                          I keep looking for a melted spot
                          far away from all the snow

                            Another Cliché from René


                            She's got

                            She's got a pocket full of good intentions
                            and memories she won't forget
                            she's got a mind full of new inventions
                            no one else has thought of yet
                            She's got the world growing on her shoulders
                            her walls covered in art
                            and even if she's getting older
                            she'll always be young at heart

                            She's got much on her mind
                            That no one else could find
                            and none of the ever has the time

                            She's got so many dreams
                            and visions so it seems
                            and I don't know what half of it means

                            There are fires burning inside her
                            but she's not that afraid
                            and she always has a star to guide her
                            even if it's starting to fade
                            And sometimes she's feeling lonely
                            without anybody else
                            being aware that the only
                            one she can really trust is herself

                              I guess I'm productive with lyrics nowadays, not really with melodies though, but whatever, the "whore's miscarriage" line is really horrific, but I also thought it was pretty good and the song it pretty awful in itself. It's just bunch of ideas I had in one.


                              Calvary of life

                              Verse 1


                              I'm so tired of breaking my back
                              will I ever earn my days of leisure?
                              I'm so sick of stereotypes
                              and new hip bands and media hype
                              add a cigarette in their mouths for good measure
                              Self debasement is my new addiction
                              I'm heading for my own crucifixion

                              Chorus

                              It's the Calvary of life
                              I make my own stigmata
                              with a table knife
                              It's the Golgotha of shame
                              this is where all
                              know who you are, but no one knows your name

                              Verse 2

                              I'm so tired of unwritten rules
                              relying on a twisted simp of fate
                              I'm so sick of gender roles
                              and my own lack of self control
                              I'm a xenophobic mind brought up to hate
                              and love and marriage
                              fall together like a whore's miscarriage

                              Verse 3

                              I'm so tired of pretending to care
                              it was better when I refused to
                              I'm so sick of making amends
                              and saying words that don't make sense
                              it's just something I got used to
                              People always try to get under my skin
                              but I'm never gonna let them in

                                I lost a police officer

                                  I listened to Minor threat today and it inspired me to write a hardcore song and it turned out to be about privilege and defensiveness. It was also inspired by the Mens right activists thread. I'm worried people will take it the wrong way though. It's not really meant to mock people, but it's about an attitude which a lot of people seem to have and it's almost the same idea as "Virtual reality" above. When I wrote it down I wrote "I'm telling you know" and I dunno if that's a cooler title. I feel like this could be a badass song if it's angry enough.

                                  I'm telling you no

                                  Verse 1

                                  We live in a world without justice
                                  so how can we really know what trust is?
                                  We're on the top, others on the bottom
                                  sometimes the order changes, but we're glad that we're not them
                                  You tell me to be a quitter
                                  and maybe I'll consider
                                  but when you tell me to drop out when I'm the highest bidder
                                  I'm telling you no!!!!!

                                  Verse 2

                                  We're in desperate need for social change
                                  and some thinks that might be arranged
                                  but you think I should you join the battle?
                                  you're on your high horse caressing your saddle
                                  you tell me the slow will be fast
                                  and maybe it's ok that the first become the last
                                  but when you tell me I'm affected by the past
                                  I'm telling you no!

                                  Verse 3

                                  Everyone's exploited, everyone's a victim
                                  but when we saw those asses, me made sure we licked them
                                  I'm poor as hell, I want to kill the rich
                                  so how can you tell me I'm privileged?
                                  You tell me to be nice
                                  and maybe I will think twice
                                  but when you tell me to open my eyes
                                  I'm telling you no!

                                  Verse 4

                                  Yeah, sure, there are still bad attitudes
                                  but I am not one of those dudes
                                  so don'y say shame on me
                                  don't put the fucking blame on me
                                  You tell me to face it
                                  and maybe I'll embrace it
                                  but when you tell me to change it
                                  I'm telling you no!!!

                                  Blah blah blah
                                  I won't open them

                                    So I got this really weird idea and I'm kind of happy how the song turned out. I really like the line "She's still bound to her father's will", maybe "tied to" is better

                                    A comprehensive guide to main female Shakespeare characters in song

                                    Verse 1

                                    Lady Macbeth, involved in a crime of death
                                    her husband, a figure of blindness
                                    A place on the Scottish Monarchal throne
                                    unpasteurized her milk of human kindness
                                    Sends a letter to her husband
                                    about unlawful, lethal matters
                                    the blood is on his hands now
                                    and on hers too, from the Crimson dagger

                                    Now he rises to king
                                    danananana
                                    and Scotland's bound to sing
                                    danananana

                                    Chorus

                                    Danananana
                                    Danananana

                                    Verse 2

                                    Juliet, who could ever have made that bet
                                    who'd think the Capulet's "No"'d mean "no"
                                    Fell in love with a Montague
                                    another only child named Romeo
                                    The only way for their love to remain
                                    was secret holy matrimony
                                    now Romeo is sent away
                                    and she's doomed to wander lonely

                                    Now they both have died
                                    danananana
                                    in a pact of suicide
                                    danananana


                                    Verse 3

                                    Ophelia, is it really ya?
                                    down there in the brook?
                                    Can you leave us a spoiler
                                    For those who haven't read the book?
                                    You won't be the queen of Denmark
                                    the soliloquy is long
                                    now you sing in rhymes and verses
                                    an insane beauty of your songs

                                    I could see it in your smile
                                    dananananana
                                    Prince Hamlet wasn't worth your while
                                    dananananana

                                    Verse 4

                                    Portia, when is the real time of Venice?
                                    Bassanio is your love and thrill
                                    but the suitors got to go to Belmont
                                    she's still bound to her father's will
                                    Scholared and up in court
                                    she's morphed into Balthazar
                                    Gave a man a word and a sentence
                                    she sees mercy and justice from afar

                                    A bastion of mercy and love
                                    dananananana
                                    she won't let Shylock spill Christian blood
                                    dananananana

                                      happy being you

                                      Put your weary hands upon my shoulder
                                      press your index finger on my tongue
                                      We got boring as we got older
                                      but we still like to pretend we're young
                                      Take a look at me in the mirror
                                      and let's make a change
                                      I feel like I've never seen you clearer
                                      but you've also never seemed this strange

                                      Chorus

                                      but I'm happy being you
                                      and you're happy being me too
                                      all those things that we do
                                      they will last forever
                                      yeah, I'm happy being you
                                      and there's only one of us, too
                                      cuz none of us can do, any better

                                      Brush your little teeth and go to bed now
                                      put all your things upon your shelf
                                      there's lots going on in your head now
                                      it seems you are talking to yourself
                                      I'd like to make a promise
                                      that nothing shall separate us
                                      I know who my only one is
                                      cuz your're the only one I can really trust

                                        I wrote two songs lately that I'm kind of happy with, the first one "Back to Debasement" seems to be a guide to hating yourself or to not hating yourself, I can't tell.

                                        Back to Debasement

                                        Verse 1

                                        Trying to raise self-awareness
                                        time to rise to the occasion
                                        you're tired of being careless
                                        losing yourself in degradation
                                        You want to be someone else instead of you
                                        you can only see the things you lack
                                        but you'll never grasp what's ahead of you
                                        if you keep on looking back

                                        Chorus

                                        Swallow your pride
                                        choke on your vanity
                                        think for yourself
                                        let go of your sanity
                                        if you aren't ready
                                        better find a replacement
                                        cuz the only road leads
                                        back to debasement

                                        Verse 2

                                        I tried to burn my bridges
                                        but soaked them with my tears
                                        I think I've become religious
                                        I lost my faith along the years
                                        Every time I'll feel this bad again
                                        because of castles I have built
                                        I have to visit the Vatican
                                        rid myself of Catholic guilt

                                        Bridge

                                        Back to debasement
                                        It's the only way
                                        to love and rise above you
                                        Back to debasement
                                        It's all OK
                                        No one really expects much of you


                                        The second song is supposed to be a conversation between two ex-lovers that still aren't over each other, and are not sure if they love or hate each other, and I think one of them has stronger feelings than the other. It's like a mentally challenged brain child of Bob Dylan and Dr. Frank, with Billy "The Milkman of Human Kindness" adding his milk to it as well. One could say the lyrics and the title are embarrassing, but I actually am shamelessly happy with it!

                                        Continent of Incontinence

                                        Verse 1

                                        You were once up on my pedestal
                                        and then I watched you rise and fall
                                        I used to know your every move
                                        but lately it seems that you've
                                        become someone I hardly know at all

                                        While there are still signs of ambivalence
                                        none of that really makes sense
                                        you were once a cover story
                                        until you marked your territory:
                                        the continent of incontinence

                                        Chorus

                                        Memories are matched and made
                                        but they're long gone, I'm afraid
                                        cuz even those are starting to fade
                                        You used to be stuck
                                        like glue in my head
                                        now you're just a withered flower
                                        in a molded bed

                                        Verse 2

                                        You're someone I was meant to miss
                                        and your lips were lent to kiss
                                        you used to be a bracket
                                        then I put you in life's jacket
                                        and you're vaguely a parenthesis

                                        And obviously I still cry tears
                                        being alone in the dark is one of my fears
                                        but my hands have stopped grabbing
                                        cuz you're like an abandoned cabin
                                        no one has seen in years


                                        Verse 3

                                        Your presence is still there on the back of the bus
                                        and sometimes as clear as it ever was
                                        and even if some of my hearts agree
                                        that your heart still plays a part of me
                                        I don't believe it really does

                                        So when you're alone in your room
                                        I can ask "It's you, I presume?"
                                        there's no need to be worried
                                        even if you've got me buried
                                        one day you'll be like me and release me from my tomb



                                        I guess it doesn't make much sense that one of these people have many hearts.

                                          Front Porch, West Virginia

                                          Verse 1

                                          I know they have taken your life away
                                          they've taken mine as well
                                          I no longer care if I die in here
                                          I'm already in personal hell
                                          A dagger with bloody hands
                                          held your head and slit your throat
                                          you were found on a front porch
                                          with bleaching/paling face and bloody coat
                                          I heard about it a day later
                                          depressed someone could do that
                                          everyone can be a victim
                                          I guess, I never really knew that

                                          Chorus

                                          Someone took your life and mine
                                          and shattered something in you
                                          and they don't ever serve their time
                                          they only continue

                                          They haven't only taken everything
                                          they destroyed something within ya
                                          it could be anyone or anything
                                          in Front Porch, West Virginia

                                          Verse 2

                                          They picked me up at three
                                          pulled me rapid and vicious
                                          I had nothing to say in the interrogation
                                          I must've seemed suspicious
                                          After their decree
                                          they said "you've got to trust us
                                          it's not just our triumph
                                          it's a victory for justice"
                                          I wonder if it's their own conviction
                                          or pure evil that made them do this
                                          maybe they're not that different
                                          from the one who made you go through this

                                          Bridge

                                          Who is asleep? Who is awake here?
                                          What is really at stake here?
                                          Our lives, our time or justice at large?

                                            Rene, I hope you someday collaborate with a well established pop punk musician of well repute, someone like Ben Weasel. He could even lead you to eventually connect with Blink-182!

                                            The truth is out there, Rene! Aliens do exist!

                                                I tried to make a song that Frank Sinatra or Nat King Cole could sing, if they weren't dead.

                                                No one Knows Misery like Me

                                                Verse 1

                                                Everyone must've met her once
                                                and I guess most see her every couple of months
                                                some might run into her every day
                                                when she's there all the time, you get used to her they say
                                                But when she's there you cannot reject her
                                                and she always comes when you least expect her
                                                she's small and big, and last but not least
                                                she has the smile of a tyrant and the mind of a beast

                                                Chorus

                                                She shows up at day and up at night
                                                and she's always there within plain sight
                                                she might seem gone, but she's always there you see
                                                The creature that hides the sun
                                                she is known to everyone
                                                but no one knows Misery like me


                                                Verse 2
                                                She's always lurking behind the scenes
                                                and finds her way into your dreams
                                                Sometimes it's even so that she's
                                                sneaking into childhood memories
                                                she shows up when you're broken hearty
                                                and the morning after a party
                                                Within your sight and inside your mind
                                                she's someone you cannot leave behind

                                                Bridge

                                                Misery isn't your friend
                                                no matter what pleasure you give her
                                                she'll never come to an end
                                                you'll always have to be with her

                                                  is very far from here

                                                  manipulative, liberal whores
                                                  who say our holy book is a lie

                                                  He'll always be there
                                                  you will find your grace in prayer
                                                  keep your soul free from sin
                                                  have your faith in the holy one

                                                  should have their bottoms kicked
                                                  the only way for Christianity
                                                  is obedient and strict
                                                  The stupid intellectuals
                                                  will have their lies to tell
                                                  they say "accept bisexuals"
                                                  but they don't know they're going to hell

                                                  There's no way to run
                                                  when Judgemnent day has come
                                                  We're all waiting for armegeddon
                                                  Some believe in science
                                                  and in mindless self-reliance
                                                  but those won't get you into heaven

                                                  Science won't get you into heaven

                                                  bridge

                                                  They say they have found
                                                  that the world is round
                                                  they say around a burning sun we turn
                                                  but that won't save them when their souls will burn

                                                  Abstain from alcohol

                                                  and your soul is filled with sin
                                                  you can't expect love from Jesus
                                                  if you won't love him

                                                  There's no kingdom waiting
                                                  for those who worship Satan
                                                  those vile and sinful whores
                                                  so hold on to your virginity
                                                  and salute the holy trinity
                                                  and the kingdom of heaven is yours

                                                  The kingdom of heaven is yours


                                                  I'm calling you

                                                  I had lost my belief in the savior
                                                  I did no longer feel safe
                                                  but then I went to Norway
                                                  which opened the doorway
                                                  into a new found faith

                                                  I almost crawled up to Satan
                                                  I wasn't that hard to convince
                                                  but I've finally come
                                                  to a place I can drink rum
                                                  and we're all confessing our sins

                                                  Chorus

                                                  If someone is broke
                                                  someone else will pay
                                                  We'll buy each other beer
                                                  and then we'll pray
                                                  thanks lord for giving me this place to fall into

                                                  If someone gets arrested
                                                  we will pay the bail
                                                  we'll get wasted
                                                  from the holy grail
                                                  Can't you hear me Jesus, I'm calling you

                                                  I've found what I missed
                                                  I've started watching porn again
                                                  Either videos or pictures
                                                  then I'll read the holy scripture
                                                  I never thought I'd be born again

                                                  I've been scared of dying
                                                  forgot the way of Christ
                                                  but now I'll have this reunion
                                                  in this holy communion
                                                  in Vodka and Bourbon I was Baptized


                                                  Sadness was upon me
                                                  I had lost my only idol
                                                  but through all the sorrow
                                                  I can see a bright tomorrow
                                                  with my moonshine and my bible

                                                  Mother Mary hears me praying
                                                  and I will never leave her
                                                  Now I am in Norway
                                                  and I will have it your way
                                                  once again, I'm a believer
                                                  There's now a video to the last song here!
