Track Name: An Autumn Saturday
Driving into town an an autumn Saturday
Passing by all the signs
From politicians who say
"This year you should vote for me
Opposing party is the enemy"
But do they really care
About this failing economy?

I don't have the time to spend
Falling apart on the weekends
They promise me they'll change my life
But what's the score?
Will you believe them anymore?
Because pretty soon, there's nothing left
There's nothing left

Now I'm not the type of guy
Who likes to talk about politics
But it seems election time
Brings out the worst in our candidates
Playing rounds of truth or dare
To hide our state of affairs
And if we could be honest
I think we've all been far too scared

I don't have the time to spend
Falling apart on the weekends
They promise me they'll change my life
But what's the score?
Will you believe them anymore?
Because pretty soon, there's nothing left
There's nothing left

Get your signs off of my street
This has been going on too many weeks
Get your signs off my front lawn
This has been going on way too long

I don't have the time to spend
Falling apart on the weekends
They promise me they'll change my life
But what's the score?
Will you believe them anymore?
Because pretty soon, there's nothing left
There's nothing left
Track Name: If You're Good, Pizza. If You're Bad, Poison.
Back when I first met you I thought you seemed pretty nice
But now I'm seeing more and more how you treat all the guys
I thought that you were kinda cool
But now I see that you are full
Of yourself and all those things you think are
All those things you think you are, but you aren't

Met so many girls like you
I don't care cuz I know your type's untrue
And I don't want a single thing to do
With a selfish little girl like you

At first I was fooled by your false maturity
It's nothing more than your self righteousness now can't you see
I thought that you were different
But now I see through this event
That you are
But not in any way that's good
You'd flaunt your wisdom if you could
But you can't

Met so many girls like you
I don't care cuz I know your type's untrue
And I don't want a single thing to do
With a selfish little girl like you
Track Name: You're Wrong, Colonel Sanders!
You treat her like a candy bar prize!
You brag about her to the other guys
Yet you get mad if they simply talk to her
Are you afraid she'll find a guy who she deserves?

She's a person too!
You can't get that through your head!
She's a person too!
You treat her like a prize instead!
She's a person too!
You're abusive with no heart!
She's a person too!
But you add her to your chart
Of the girls you've had
Yet treated bad
But you don't care because
You're just glad
That you can show off
To all your friends
Then you scoff
And don't care if it ends

Nothin' but a candy bar prize
She's nothing but an object in your eyes
What she needs is love and care
But in her time of need, you're never there!

She's a person too!
You can't get that through your head!
She's a person too!
You *mumble mumble mumble mum*!
She's a person too!
You're abusive with no heart!
She's a person too!
But you add her to your chart
Of the girls you've had
Yet treated bad
But you don't care because
You're just glad
That you can show off
To all your friends
But then you scoff
And don't care if it ends
You don't care if it ends
You don't care, no you don't
You don't care if it ends
No, you don't care if it ends
Track Name: Waking Up On Weekdays
Sleep for about an hour and a half
Wake at 1:26 AM
Calculate and do the math
Then try to fall asleep once again

Wake to the stupid song my alarm plays every morning at 8
Check my calendar
It's been more than a summer's wait

I swore to myself I'd do it right this time
But now I'm struggling to make you mine
It's just a fantasy
Nightmare and incomplete
You're not a part of me
I doubt you ever will be
I doubt you ever well be

Look for you for a minute and 30 seconds
See for at 1:44 PM
Thrown off guard, I'd reckon
I'll just stay lifeless once again

I swore to myself I'd do it right this time
But now I'm struggling to make you mine
It's just a fantasy
Nightmare and incomplete
You're not a part of me
I doubt you ever will be
Track Name: Keep It Simple
Well to keep it simple
The problem is the people
Always trying to shove thier opinions down our throats
And maybe if they could just keep it simple
They wouldn't have to resort to misreading quotes

I don't really have the time
All I know is I've got mine
And you can't take that away
From me

Why must the people
Always be debating
When they don't realize that they're all just going nuts
And if the people
Could just stop thier hating
Then maybe possibly, they could get up the guts to

Say that this is not what counts
All I know is it amounts to nothing at all
Can we see the light of day?
Can we break out of this phase?
Oh, this phase that we don't need

Alright it's time, spread the word
Everybody everywhere is actin' so absurb
Alright it's time, to learn some couth
It's about time that we teach it to our youth
All you gotta do for me and all you gotta say to me
Is nothing at all
All you gotta do to me and all you gotta say for me
Is nothing at all

I don't really have the time
All I know is I've got mine
And you can't take that away
From a kid who's young and dumb
I'm young and dumb
I'm young and dumb
