Track Name: Teenage Dust™
drinking in the blackest seas
bring me back my misery
misery, misery

begging you to set me free
begging you to shatter me
begging you, begging you, o, o!

wave goodbye eternally
march myself into the sea
say goodbye, say goodbye, bye bye!

ask me why I feel this way
what else is there left to say?
ask me, ask me, ask me, ask me, o, o!

I want to burn in Hell!
Smash me into Teenage Dust™

battering my memories
the century is history
memory, memory

hiking up your skirt for me
rupruting internally
drain me, drain me, ooh ooh!

I decide the penalty
abandoning my family
can’t decide, can’t decide, oh no!

crack an egg and ravage me
we’re jumping on the count of three
1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3-!

I want to burn in Hell!
Smash me into Teenage Dust™

blooming in the winter sun
kissing girls is so much fun
I wish I could unlock my father’s gun

pound for pound I’m built to last
fragile bullies kick my ass
Slam my pretty face into the grass

my heart is a little, pitiful thing
strangled with a length of string
fed my broken bone to the machine

I want to burn in Hell!
Smash me into Teenage Dust™
Track Name: I'm Cursed
washed up in the rain
stepped into frame
oncoming train
slash down my veins

you curse my name
cannot explain
life lived in vain
on ball and chain

choking back your name
my heart is an open grave

won’t you throw me away?
every day is more gray
cursed to never decay
this pains is always the same

won’t you throw me away?
every day is more gray
now I tighten the chain
this pains is always the same

life lived in shame
on open flame
acid rain
never complain

I play the game
I leave a stain
I drink champagne
it’s all the same

choking back your name
my heart is an open grave
I’m getting kind of brave
I’m coming back in waves

won’t you throw me away?
every day is more gray
cursed to never decay
this pains is always the same

won’t you throw me away
every day is more gray
now i tighten the chain
this pains is always the same
Track Name: The Pain Olympics
I went to my room today and threw my life away
Every day I curse myself because I am this way
Oh-oh, ah-oh, oh-oh-oh!
I lay down in my home and watch my lives and loves decay

I know it’s not too bright to want to scream out these cliches, but
I look in your eyes and there’s one thing I ache to say:
“Life is very long when you’re hooooooooorny”
“Life is very long when you’re hooooooooorny!”

O, I lay me down
shatter my crown

Sorrow
O, sorrow
I’m not okay

Sorrow
O, sorrow
and The Pain Olympics

Sorrow
O, Extinction
Annihilation

Sometimes it’s hard to decide
not to commit suicide
but every time i try
i wish it was you that died

invisible in mirrors, I begin to buck and bray
twice so far I’ve posed myself for months as a valet
“Life is very long when you’re hooooooooorny”
“Life is very long when you’re hooooooooorny!”

(Sometimes it’s hard to decide
not to commit suicide
but every time i try
i wish it was you that died)
Track Name: Yank
talking with my dad on the telephone
everyone deserves to die
pinned in your bathroom, I wanna go home
bathe the flesh till it falls off the bone again
falls off the bone again
falls off the bone again
hang up the phone again

kissing my teachers under the bleachers
shopping with my mom and buying new sneakers
walking at the mall and talking with friends
pointing the barrel straight at my head
pressing a knife into my chest
inviting a stranger into my bed
calling a cab
and sleeping on the couch instead

dig into the sand until you find me there
pull me from the rocks and comb my hair
forced into water, gasping for air
dragged from the river and wearing new underwear
I was the son and heir
gasping alone for air
drowning but I don’t care

kissing my teachers under the bleachers
shopping with my mom and buying new sneakers
walking at the mall and talking with friends
pointing the barrel straight at my head
biting your lips until they turn red
tear down the poster and rip it to shreds
lying in the bathroom, wishing you were dead

please don’t ask me why
hand slipped onto thigh
anticipating your reply
shutting tight my eyes

spreading like a plague on the telephone
yanking on his arm until you break the bone
you were a monster, begging to have her
filling your body with muscle enhancer
you were the dancer, mouth filled with cancer
wards falling out
but they’re all wrong answers...

kissing my teachers under the bleachers
shopping with my mom and buying new sneakers
walking at the mall and talking with friends
pointing the barrel straight at my head
pressing a knife into my chest
inviting a stranger into my bed
calling my mom
and sleeping, sleeping
Track Name: Let Me Die
stabbing out the eyes
a thousand children cry
let me die

forever suicide
on an infinite slide
let me die

a creature without pride
I hunger cyanide
let me die

I'm gay and I died and no one cared
I'm gay and I died and no one cared
I'm gay and I died and no one cared
never flew where eagles dared

never really tried
and now the rope is tied
let me die

leaving on a high
Steven is on my side
O, let me die

O, let me die
O, let me die

I'm gay and I died and no one cared
I'm gay and I died and no one cared
I'm gay and I died and no one cared
my body is covered in a billion tears

I'm only 12 years old
overdose on birth control
let me die

peeling back your folds
skeleton made of gold
let me die

O, let me die
O, let me die

I'm gay and I died and no one cared
I'm gay and I died and no one cared
I'm gay and I died and no one cared
I'll hang it up in another year
Track Name: Spirit Gum
planes come crashing without warning
young boy trapped inside a quarry
nose held on with spirit gum
hold my hand and make me come

another year of yearning
life is so hard
a century of anguish
trapped in my heart
I’m just a high school senior
I’m Joan of Arc
burst inside my rib cage
I’m torn torn apart

all this pain, and
all this hate
screaming like a distant hum
as the bullet fires from the gun

all this pain, and
all this hate
weakness sparkling in the sun
as the bullet fires from the gun

the first cut is the shallowest
lost at sea
I know it must be hard for you
to be with me
picking off the audience
shooting spree
I know it must be hard for you
because it is for me...
