Track Name: friday the 13th
what i wanted was expected too
when i needed more than i could do
what i wanted was expected too

don't you tell me what you think of me
cause i need you more than i can see
don't you tell me what you think of me
Track Name: mellencamp
times are tough, i know why
let's give something else a try
could be me, it could be you
there's not a whole lot we can do

it's over
it's over
coming up + coming in clearer

if there's something i should do
if there's something i should be
if there's something that works for you
won't you keep it away from me

it's over
it's over
coming up + coming in clearer

i know things aren't going good
there's nothing that i can say
i don't know all of the details
and you're not listening anyway
Track Name: post techno
i don't know
Track Name: windy
windy, come on over
let me show you
what i'm thinking about
it's you
and it's me

windy, come on over
i just wanna know you
i know that i'm not supposed to

and when it dies there will be nothing left
is there a geyser where your knuckle bled
all our supplies are running out, i guess
there is no time

and everything is fine
if i believe
the trick is in your mind
Track Name: if all is lost
you don't suspect it, but it's too late
by now familiar, there's no escape
is there some underlying path that i should take
fix my mistake

if all is lost
all is lost
if all is lost
why am i still standing here
i just want to disappear
will this ever go away
evidently not today

slow to dissipate. does it show?
is it just you and me here or does everybody know?
if i could just unwind the past i guess i would
seems like i should

if all is lost
all is lost
if all is lost
why am i still standing here
i just want to disappear
will this ever go away
evidently not today

does it terrify you deep inside?
does it just annoy you? i dont mind
if you have to shut me out
i swear i'll try to understand
this can't be part of someone's plan

if all is lost....
Track Name: what if
you came along, i couldn't remember
your face or your name
you sent me a note, i wrote you a letter
the result was the same

how did you know?
nobody gets me
and i don't
know
if there's any hope
now you've got me
and i won't
go

you came and went, it was november
for a while, i couldn't wait
till you came back and we were together
you'd fix me up, ease my pain

what if i forget you
what if i ever get you
Track Name: burnt
what's in your letter i don't want to know
throw it on the fire, warm me up, watch it glow
yesterday's a useless memory
it'll only drag you down, away from where you want to be

i know it won't come back
i know

desperation, oh loneliness
they're all around you
then you're gone and i forget
your reasoning, your circumstance
your hesitation, waiting on another chance
but

i know it won't come back
i know

don't you talk to me about what i should have done
it's not my fault if you don't like your own outcome
doesn't matter what you thought
or where we went wrong
just go away
go away

what's in your letter i don't want to know
keep it to yourself now, smother it
don't let it grow
sometimes you need corrective surgery
i won't let you drag me
down away from where i'm supposed to be

i know it won't come back
i know
Track Name: don'tcha tell me
don'tcha tell me i don't know
you're wrong, you're wrong
don'tcha tell me i can't go
where i want, it's my song

if you don't like it, you don't have to stay
you're not gonna like the rest anyway
if you don't like it you don't have to stay
won't you please go away

don'tcha tell me i don't know
you're wrong, you're wrong
Track Name: trying so hard
when does it end
will you ever be ready
you just pretend
you know, you know, you know

been here before
never felt like home
who is this for?
who's watching you when you're all alone?

trying so hard you make it impossible

wasted again
it never comes out right
lost on your friends
its worth it cause you know you fought the fight

trying so hard you make it impossible

don't you wonder when it'll be enough
don't you wonder if you should just give up

trying so hard you make it impossible

is there anybody home
Track Name: dear old stockholm syndrome
lie to me softly
i'll give you all i own
abandon my instincts
just don't leave me alone

now that you're gone, i feel guilty
i can't deny how you failed me
don't ask me

i'll beg your pardon
i'll lay down at your feet
dont' let this upset you
don't take away my seat

i think i need a vacation
from all the self-immolation
you let me

this isn't how it has to be
the more of you, the less of me
Track Name: tony luigi's lament
I am a humble sucka from a humble neighbourhood.
My father he disowned me when he felt I was no good
I always tried my hardest at home and when at school.
My teacher though- never liked me. Said I was a fool!

I guess I got my wires crossed about the golden rule.

You cannot steal another man’s gold to claim it as your own.
You cannot replace it with a cheaply PAINTED YELLOW ST-OOHHHH-NNN
But I know I am my own man and and my successes I shall find
If only I can overcome my demon-
WHITE WINE
Track Name: don't know what you do to me
don't know what you do to me
dont know what you do to me
didn't think someone could change the way i see
don't know what you do to me

i just want to show
everyone that i know
but it's not
really appropriate
i can't accept too much
i can express my thoughts
and shovel it

don't know what you do to me
don't know what you do to me
ever get the feeling you're living someone else's dream
don't know what you do to me

i just want to show
everyone that i know
but it's not
really appropriate
i can express my thoughts
i can accept what i've got
to show for it
Track Name: punk rock song
drugs drugs drugs
thank you for my life
Track Name: ol' speedy
camping on my lawn
minding what went wrong

and i don't know yet
i don't know

camping on your lawn
thinking bout what went wrong
i'll sing my little song
from night until the dawn
Track Name: i got shingles
and i gave them to myself :*(
Track Name: the other rain song
what did i say
to make you go away
yesterday
now here i lay
once again
watching the rain

does it fall on your shoulders anymore
shut the windows in the basement, let it pour
when there's nothing left to lose
we watch it all grow back again

words you might misunderstand
you may be right
so lend a hand
don't get uptight
with all of your plans

does it fall on your shoulders anymore
shut the windows in the basement, let it pour
when there's nothing left to lose
we watch it all grow back again
this doesn't happen to your friends

what if i was sad?
would it make you feel bad?
what if i didn't mean it
you just thought that i did?
what if i'm outrageously
extraordinary

what did i say
to make you go away
yesterday
now here i lay
with all my friends
watching the rain

does it fall on your shoulders anymore
shut the windows in the basement, let it pour
when there's nothing left to lose
we watch it all grow back again
this doesn't happen to your friends
bet you never thought that's how this would end
Track Name: long way down
i don't have time for this
it's already lost

it's a long way down when all you want to do is wait
with a list of crimes to answer for
did you get your chance or is it already too late
do you need a push out the door

i don't have time for this
it's already lost
be my therapist
someone i can't exhaust

everybody they've got something
Track Name: rock and roll will never die
(instrumental)
Track Name: i hope you feel it
i hope you feel it coming back again

it's all coming back
Track Name: egg
good egg, good egg

all this running when we could've just left it longer
now i finally got you out of your shell
thought i wanted to spice it up
is it stronger?
oh well, oh well

good egg
Track Name: face
i see your face
you don't know what it does to me
watch me erase
your preconceptions of what i should be
i don't care about the one thing i know for sure
got the whole world knocking at my door

i see your face
you don't know what you're doing to me
in cyberspace
you come along to set me free
all this time that you spend thinking bout yourself
i just want to pretend i'm someone else

i see your face
now won't you show me a little more
well i can wait
don't make it easy, i'll get bored
i don't worry bout mine cause i know it's true
there's not a whole lot here between me and you

show me your face
there's no reason to be ashamed
it's no disgrace
i don't need to know your name
all i know is what i like and it's what i see
want to feel a connection 'tween you and me
Track Name: every time you hurt
baby i know that you don't understand
i know that it's not your fault
you just have to do what you do for yourself
don't think about me at all

baby this arguing's wearing me down
you know that i'm way out of line
if i could just do what you say i should do
everything would be fine

if you were someone else, you'd know how i feel
i wouldn't have to make you see
i can't keep waiting until you come around
so why is it up to me?

every time you hurt
every time you hurt me
i find out how this works
every time you hurt me

baby you're muttering under your breath
why don't you say that to my face
you think i should thank you cause you took me here
i guess that was my mistake

i'll understand when you admit that i'm right
i'll smile and turn the other cheek
i'll be your sympathetic ear all night
you don't have to let me speak

every time you hurt
every time you hurt me
i probably make it worse
every time you hurt me

for all i know this is the best thing that is ever gonna come my way
i wanna tell you that i'm leaving even less than you need me to stay
don't try to argue, i don't want to sit and listen to it anyhow
don't make me question my impression when i thought that we could work this out

baby i know that it's not your fault
i know that you don't understand
but i can't just tiptoe around what you want
i'm not a part of your plan

every time you hurt
every time you hurt me
i find out what i'm worth
every time you hurt me

every time you hurt
every time you hurt me
i find out how this works
every time you hurt me
Track Name: end to this
help me out
i'm in your window
if i'm around
why do you mumble?

oh, tell me there's an end to this

i don't know how
to keep it together
it's my turn now
gonna make you cry

oh, tell me there's an end to this
just take my fear and run with it
but not to day

it's dragging me under
so why do i wonder
i want to become her

help me out

oh, tell me there's an end to this
just take my fear and run with it
tell me there's an end to this
Track Name: daily meditation
i want to thank you
though i don't know where i'm going
it's impossible to see
i can't pretend to
ever understand the reasons
it's all happening for me

accept, i guess
it's one in 400 trillion
should be good enough for me
protect this mess
if i'm running out of anger
am i out of steam?

i want to thank you
though i don't know how to tell you
you mean everything to me
the past, all we've been through
it could feed your sense of purpose
you might miss what turns out to be

accept, i guess
it's one in 400 trillion
should be good enough for me
protect this mess
if i'm ever out of anger
am i out of steam?
Track Name: complete
well, uh, mark here originally started it and
we wanted to form an original band
that’s like nothing else
you know, like the bands of the 70s and 80s
so, uh, we took our initals
first initial
i’m curtis
which is a c and then you have the o
m is mark
p is, uh, peter
and todd
which makes complete
basically the initials is how we did it

in the band name
they’re in the band name
complete
all them initials are in that band
name

i wanted to go in the original scene
you know, the underground scene where
we can play our music
we don’t have to worry about the cover scene
knowmean, you know
covers, it’s not from
our heart
from our soul
like our music is
it’s from our heart
and our soul
and that’s what counts
to us
Track Name: eternal walk away
holding on
to what it should have been
nothing's wrong
don't let me drag you in
it's only what you make it
now and then
i think about you
let's pretend
i never found you
it's easier than facing

my eternal walk away
it's fine, i'll get the nerve someday
it's everyone else's turn
so i'll just wait for mine
don't tell me it's over

letting go
i don't know how to
tell myself
so much about you
i've got a destiny and
there's no way
i'd tell you this but
yesterday
i should have kissed you
it's only now i see it

my eternal walk away
it's fine, i'll get the nerve someday
it's everyone else's turn
so i'll just wait for mine
don't tell me it's over

holding out
for when the time is right
staying in
not feeling it tonight
i know i'm just not ready
to face the world
they'd see right through me
every time
and if they knew me
they'd run me out of this town

my eternal walk away
it's fine, i'll get the nerve someday
it's everyone else's turn
so i'll just wait for mine
don't tell me it's over
Track Name: in my mind
time and again
i ask myself the same fucking questions
is it gonna last
or are we moving in the wrong direction?
do we stand on stable ground?
are we quickly just falling down?

looking around
something's different than it was from the start
every day we seem
to drift a little farther apart
do we stand on stable ground?
are we quickly just falling down?

as hard as i might try
to find a reason why
i'm running out of answers
in my mind

little things
that always come together in the end
why can't we
become more than only just friends

do we stand on stable ground?
are we quickly just falling down?

as hard as i might try
to find a reason why
i'm running out of answers
in my mind
Track Name: i'm still flying
i just gotta be myself
and i don't care if you like it, oh
if you gotta hunt me down
well you know, i can't change at all

i'm still flying
for one more day
i'm still living
it's more than you can say

don't you think that i can tell
what you're saying behind my back
do you think your opinion will
protect you when your line goes flat

i'm still flying
for one more day
i'm still living
more than you can say

(guitar solo)
Track Name: mr. e
i don't want to go outside today
i don't want to let you know
if i don't feel ok
all i want to do is make you see
all that you can be

everybody wants so much to me
i can't look out the window
when i go to pee
why can't you just leave me alone
hang up the phone

when i drive around
in my car
i always see it
i don't have to look to far
peeking out from every windowsill
i'll get my fill

everybody looks so good today
i have to catch my breath
i don't know what to say
could it be we're thinking the same thing?
i will be your king
Track Name: hugs not drugs
improvised lol
Track Name: mr. cranky
i don't understand it
i don't wanna get it

it's not my fault if i don't really like it
all these stupid songs sound the same
don't sit there and tell me i'm too old, now
it was so much better in my day
Track Name: you don't have to feel it (acoustic)
let it go
it's all behind you
i don't know
what you're looking for

you don't have to feel it anymore
you don't have to feel it
so what's left to live for

it's all over
do what you wanna do
i'm hung over
could you keep it down

you don't have to feel it anymore
you don't have to feel it
so what's it good for
Track Name: you don't have to feel it (electric)
it's too late
it's all behind you
not today
it'll just remind you

you don't have to feel it anymore
you don't have to feel it
so what's it good for

how's the pain
is it wonderful?
concentrate on what you know

house of pain
is it everlasting
concentrate
on the one who's asking

you don't have to feel it anymore
you don't have to feel it
so what's it good for
Track Name: it's your life
when you finally find
a place where you belong
you will realize
it was right here all along

it's your life
you don't have to
worry about what they tell you
take your time
and in time you'll see
take control
only you can
get to your true destination
it's up to you
don't you wait for me

they don't understand
what's inside your head
that don't mean it's wrong
one day you'll be dead
now you have a chance
and you know just what to do
don't let them tear you down
they don't know what's right for you
Track Name: who you are
i'm not in need
i'm not anything
take what you want from me

i'll protect you
i'll hold you up
and reflect you
i know
who you are

if we can't agree
just know i won't let you down
take it out on me

i respect you
i'd never want
to upset you
but now, somehow

here we are
who we are

relax, just breathe
i don't think you understand
what it is you see
you're tired

i'll protect you
i'll stitch you up
disinfect you
don't you worry
i'll never tell
what i know
yeah i know
who you are
Track Name: so much for you and me
there's no use pretending this
is something it'll never be
so much for you and me
no need to keep on trying
ending up in misery
so much for you and me
it's only me
that keeps me wandering
away
better things
are just around the bend
that's what they say
so if there's somewhere else
that you'd rather be
so much for you and me

take what you need
don't sit there wondering
how it slipped away
whatever thing
can make you whole again
must be ok
you don't need to hang around
pretending you're not free
there's so much for you and me
so much for you and me
Track Name: dear old stockholm syndrome (early version)
lies you're rehearsing
"i'm doing all i can"
it's hard to imagine
deny and reprimand

now that you're gone
you're a scapegoat
i'll keep you warm
wear my raincoat
believe me

time to do nothing
combative, i'm afraid
wise but indulgent
making lemonade

now that you're gone
you're a scapegoat
i'll keep you warm
wear my raincoat
don't leave me

it's not what it's supposed to be
there's four of you, thirteen of me
Track Name: the folly of man
just wanna make it on my own
Track Name: 2020 karmavision
when you told me
i couldn't remember
but i won't go there
this time

what you sold me
couldn't be better
i'm on board with
this line

cause i've read everything twice
if you allow it into your life
it must come true

when you told me
it couldn't be better
i was happy
that time
Track Name: how long do people last
how long do people last
when nothing ever goes away?
if i just breathe it out
will it come back again?
where does it stay?

if i turn 32,
retirement's not an option on that day
what am i gonna do
when you no longer need me?

if i'm a plastic bag
and you're the ocean
we will never part
if i'm a microbead
i'll always find a way
back to your heart

but i'm an aging boy
society has given me so much
what am i gonna do
if we decide i've lost my touch?

it never goes away
Track Name: for bob dylan
writing a song on guitar is hard
writing a song on guitar
writing a song on guitar is hard
so i don't do it anymore

what if there's nothing left to say
Track Name: oh boy
it doesn't matter what i think
there's so many other
better opinions

it's not impeachable
i was trying to protect you
so what if i did it
idiot

we need that pipeline
pipeline
pipeline to our hearts
and jobs
and jobs
you like to talk
but
Track Name: never let u go
i don't wanna let you go away
i don't wanna let you go
i don't wanna make you wanna stay
but i don't wanna let you go

the sun shines in your mind it makes you happy
the sun shines in your mind and it's not right

i don't wanna let you go away
i don't wanna let you go
real life is always cold and gray
i don't wanna let you go

the sun shines in your mind and makes you happy
the sun shines in your mind and it's not right

tell me something beautiful and i'll say "that's impossible"
show me something magical and i don't care
all i can imagine looks like something familiar, oh
all i want is what's already here
Track Name: pop song?
someday
will you give it up
you're stuck there
haven't you had enough
it's up to you

you're thinking
of what could have been
you're drinking
too much again
what are we gonna do?

you've got to know
everybody's going through it
we don't like to let it show
it's not just you

obsession
with yourself
it's out there
everything else
how will you make it through?
you're feeling
so all alone
rejecting
your perfect home
you got to choose

take it from me
if you're committed to the darkness
then the light won't set you free

you've got to know
everybody's going through it
we don't like to let it show

it's not just you
masquerading as an empty shell
you don't know what to do
but
i think you do
Track Name: climate change is a scam
shut up etc
