this is for me, that is for you; pressure valve #24; justified melodrama; restraint chokes expression; trauma, subdued self-destruction, pure-O, emoting to eyes that hardly give a damn

Track Name: Tool With Prop
Hey look we're at a party
I'm the guy at the party
I got the guitar at the party
And I'll play it for you
Don't you wish you had the guitar
Be the guitar guy at the party
Well I'm that guy and you you're just you
Because I'm playing this guitar
Cuz I hope that they'll remember me
Whenever they talk about the party
That we're all at
Because I'm playing guitar
I'm gonna play it all night
And there's nothing you can do about it no there's not
Because all the girls gonna like me cuz I play guitar
Yes even your girlfriend's gonna like me cuz I'm playing guitar
Four chords all you need is four chords
Cept I'm only playing three
Track Name: Somewhere Someone
Somewhere someone's taking up the space and someday I will see his face and it will probably be mine
Somewhere someone's got to have a way to make a day be something I can feel was not a waste of time
Somewhere someone's got to have a feeling they can make me feel to feel as though I really should have cared
Somewhere someone's going to the funeral of someone else and one day someone else will go to theirs
Track Name: Champion (High Score!)
What you ain't heard of me
Yeah I'm living the life you know
Check this good shit out you know
Eating cold pizza, playing pacman
I got the real 2600 too bitches
None of that TVGames shit
I know how to party too check it
Got mad ambition and so I think
I might go for the job washing dishes in the sink
After one more drink
Two liter bottle gunpowder in the dome
Blow out the streetlights and run back home
Toking up alone
And I'm a singer too I'ma sing now
This dump is my land it isn't your land
Would you really want this
I didn't think so
Oh yeah a voice like that I'ma make me a heartbreaker
Yes I'm breaking hearts
I got the high score at life too you know
I got a microwave I got guitar strings I got
I got a pair of headphones that still works, deck of cards
Facebook account in good standing
181970 points in Dig Dug, shit who wouldn't want this combo meal
Fist in the TV head in the oven
Got a suicidal streak and depression I'm lovin
Nothing else rhymes with oven that fits the rhythm at all, shit
And so I'm thinkin about this time
I think I probably could've written up a better rhyme
But I just do this instead cuz I don't feel like tryin
Yeah all the badass songs get an instrumental break
No singin no talkin just
I'ma let the harmonica take us out
Because harmonica's a sexual instrument
Track Name: Side A Has Ended
I'm so glad I'm not smart because if I was smart then people would probably expect more from me than they get
So it's good to keep everybody's expectations low
Oh I flip the tape when it stops?
I have no idea
One of these newfangled digital fuckin year 2000 newfangled contraptions
And I just learned how to use it, huh.
