WARNING

    x4

This is a public service announcement
This is only a test
Emergency evacuation protest
May impair your ability to operate machinery
Can't quite tell, just what it means to me
Keep out of reach of children
Don't talk to strangers
Get your philosophy from a bumper sticker

Warning: Live without warning
Warning: Live without warning

Bridge

Better homes and safety-sealed communities?
Did you remember to pay the utility?
Caution: police line: you better not cross
Is it the Cop or am I the one that's really dangerous?
Sanitation, Expiration date, Question Everything?
Or shut up and be the victim of authority

Warning: Live without warning
Warning: Live without warning           x2

Bridge

Better homes and safety-sealed communities?
Did you remember to pay the utility?
w/intro
Caution: police line: you better not cross
Is it the Cop or am I the one that's really dangerous?
Sanitation, Expiration date, Question Everything?
Or shut up and be the victim of authority

Warning: Live without warning
Warning: Live without warning           x2

This was a public service announcement
This was only a test

BLOOD SEX AND BOOZE (power chords)

Waiting in a room
All dressed up and bound and gagged
To a chair
It's so unfair
I won't dare move, for the pain
She puts me through is what I need
So make it bleed

I'm in distress, oh mistress
I confess so do it one more time
These handcuffs are too tight
You know I will obey, so please
Don't make me beg
For blood, sex and booze you give me
Some say I'm disturbed
But it's what I deserve, another lesson
To be learned...from a girl called kill

My head is in the gutter
Thank you sir, strike up another mandolin
Of discipline
Throw me to the dogs
Let them eat my flesh down
To the wood
It feels so good

Bridge
             x2

Bridge

CHURCH ON SUNDAY

     x2

Today is the first day of the rest
Of our lives
Tomorrow is too late to pretend
Everything's alright
I'm not getting any younger as long
As you don't get any older
I'm not going to state that yesterday never was

Bridge
Bloodshot deadbeat and a lack of sleep
Making your mascara bleed
Tears down your face
Leaving traces of my mistakes

If I promise to go to church on Sunday
Will you go with me on Friday night?
If you live with me, I'll die for you
And this compromise

I hereby solemnly to tell
The whole truth
And nothing but the truth is what
I'll ever hear from you
"Trust" is a dirty word that comes
Only from such a liar
But "respect" is something I will earn..
If you have faith

Bridge

Solo w/intro

And this compromise
And this compromise

FASHION VICTIM

He's a victim of his own time
In his "vintage suit" and tie
He's casualty dressed to the teeth
In the latest genocide

w/verse
The new seasons come and go
At the dog and pony show
Gonna sit and beg and fetch the names
And follow the dress codes
WHAT'S IN  NAME?...HEY!

w/verse
She's a scented magazine
Looking sharp and living clean
Living well and dressed to kill
But she looks like hell to me

w/verse
So when you're dancing through your wardrobe
Do the anorex ­ a go-go
Cloaked with style
For paedophiles as the credit card explodes

You auctioned off your life
For the "most" expensive price
Going once...
Going twice...
Now it's gone

w/verse
(Youth Crew)

w/chorus
You auctioned off your life
For the "most" expensive price
Going once...
Going twice...
Now it's gone

    x2    

What's in a name, hey?
What's in a name, hey?
What's in a name?

CASTAWAY

I'm on a sentimental journey
Into sight and sound
Of no return and no looking back or down
A conscientious objector to the
War that's my mind
Leaving in the lurch and I'm
Taking back what's mine

Bridge
I'm on a mission
Into destination unknown
An expedition
Onto desolation road
Where I'm a...

Castaway ­ going at it alone
Castaway ­ now I'm on my own
Castaway ­ going at it alone
Castaway ­ now I'm on my own
Lost and found, trouble bound
       w/intro
Castaway

w/verse
I'm riding on the night train and
Driving stolen cars
Testing my nerves out of the blvd.
Spontaneous combustion in the
Corners of my mind
Leaving in the lurch
And I'm taking back what's mine

w/bridge
I'm on a mission
Into destination unknown
An expedition
Onto desolation road
Where I'm a...

w/chorus
Castaway ­ going at it alone
Castaway ­ now I'm on my own
Castaway ­ going at it alone
Castaway ­ now I'm on my own
Lost and found, trouble bound
       w/intro
Castaway

 for solo bit

Bass only

Bridge

MISERY

Capo 1

Virginia was a "lot lizard" from .L..
She had a compound fracture in the "trunk"
It started when she run away
Thumbs out on the interstate
She hitched a ride to misery

w/verse
"Mr. Whirly" had a catastrophic incident
He fell into the city by the bay
He liquidated his estate
Now he sleeps upon the Haight
Panhandling misery

He's gonna get high
When he's low
The fire burns from better days
And she screams why
I said I don't know
The catastrophic hymns from yesterday
Of misery

w/verse
Vinnie was a hustler out of Amsterdam
He ran the drug cartel in "tinseltown"
They found him in a Cadillac
Bludgeoned with a baseball bat in the name
Of misery

w/verse
Gina hit the road to New York City
Mysteriously the night Vinnie croaked
She stopped in Vegas to elope
With Virginia and the dope
And kissed the bride eternally

w/chorus
And they're gonna get high
When they're low
The fire burns from better days
And he screams why
I said I don't know
The catastrophic hymns from yesterday
Of misery

Bridge
Hell hounds on your trail now once again..boy
It's groping on your leg until it sleeps
The emptiness will fill your soul with sorrow
Because it's not what you make, it's what you leave

w/verse

w/chorus
And we're gonna get high
When I'm low
The fire burns from better days
And she screams why
I said I don't know
The catastrophic hymns from yesterday
Of misery

DEADBEAT HOLIDAY

Wake up, The house is on fire
And the cat's caught in the dryer
Philosophy's a liar when
Your home is your headstone

w/verse
"Icon" is the last chance for hope
When there's no such thing as heroes
Your faith lies in the ditch that
You dug yourself in

Bridge
Last chance to piss it all away
Nothing but hell to pay
When the lights are going down

Deadbeat Holiday celebrate your own decay
There's a vacant sign that's hanging high
On a noose over your home

w/chorus
Deadbeat Holiday ­ get on your knees and pray
There's a vacant sign that's hanging high
But at least you're not alone

w/verse
Christmas lights in the middle of August
Grudges come back to haunt us
Your oldest allies are your long lost enemies
Grounded in a duplex to find that
You're living on a landmine
Vacation hotspots is a cemetery drive

w/bridge
Last chance to piss it all away
Nothing but hell to pay
When the lights are going down

w/chorus
Deadbeat Holiday ­ celebrate your own decay
There's a vacant sign that's hanging high
On a noose over your home

w/chorus
Deadbeat Holiday ­ get on your knees and pray
There's a vacant sign that's hanging high
But at least you're not alone

Solo

w/bridge
Last chance to piss it all away
Nothing but hell to pay when all you
Want to do is...not to....give up......

HOLD ON

As I stepped to the edge
Beyond the shadow of a doubt
With my conscience beating
Like the pulse of a drum
That hammers on and on
Until I reach the break of the day

w/verse
As the sun beats down
The halfway house
Has my conscience beating
The sound in my ear
The will to persevere
As I reach the break of the day

When you lost all hope and excuses
And the cheapskates & losers
Nothing's left to cling onto
                     play intro
You got to hold on yourself

w/verse
A cry of hope
A plea for peace
And my conscience beating
It's not what I want for
It's all that I need
To reach the break of the Day

w/verse
So I run to the edge
Beyond the shadows of a doubt
With my conscience bleeding
Here lies the truth
The lost treasures of my youth
As I hold on to the break of the day

w/chorus
When you lost all hope and excuses
And the cheapskates & losers
Nothing's left to cling onto
You got to hold on yourself

Solo w/verse

w/chorus
When you lost all hope and excuses
And the cheapskates & losers
Nothing's left to cling onto
You got to hold on yourself

JACKASS

     x4

To know you is to hate you
So loving you must be like suicide
I don't mind if you don't mind
I'm not the one that's going to die

w/verse
I guess I just can't listen
To this one sided conversation again
'cause I don't care if I don't care
No one ever said that life is fair

Everybody loves a joke
But no one likes a fool
                                                 /f#
And you're always cracking the same old lines again
You're well rehearsed on every verse
And that was stated clear
But no one understands your verity

w/verse
The centre of attention
Got an honourable mention once again
Congratulations and salutations
You're a figment of your own imagination

w/chorus
Everybody loves a joke
But no one likes a fool
And you're always cracking the same old lines again
You're well rehearsed on every verse
And that was stated clear
But no one understands your verity

Solo
     x4       x3  

w/verse
To know you is to bait you
And you fell victim to your own denial
I don't mind if you don't mind
If you're wasting all your time

WAITING ( tuning)

I've been waiting for a long time
For this moment to come
I'm destined
For anything...at all

w/verse
Downtown lights will be shining
On me like a diamond
Ring out under the midnight hour
No one can touch me now
And I can't turn my back
It's too late ready or not at all

I'm so much closer than
I have ever known...
Wake up

w/verse
Dawning of a new era
Calling...don't let it catch you falling
Ready or not at all
So close enough to taste it
Almost...I can embrace this
Feeling....on the tip of my tongue

w/chorus
I'm so much closer than
I have ever known...
Wake up
Better thank your lucky stars....

Solo w/verse

w/verse
I've been waiting for a long time
For this moment to come
I'm destined for anything at all

w/verse
Dumbstruck
Colour me stupid
Good luck
You're gonna need it
Where I'm going if I get there...
At all....

w/verse
Wake up
Better thank your lucky stars....

MINORITY

(Acoustic)
0-2--|
--3--|

I wanna be the minority
I don't need your authority
Down with the moral majority
Cause I wanna be the minority

I pledge allegiance to the underworld
One nation under dog there of which I stand alone
A face in the crowd, unsung against the mold
Without a doubt, singled out, the only way I know

Bridge (dist, power chords)
Stepped out of the line
Like a sheep runs from the herd
Marching out of time
To my own beat now
The only way I know

w/verse
One light, one mind flashing in the dark
Blinded by the silence of a thousand broken hearts
For crying out loud, she screamed unto me
A free for all, fuck em all, you are your own sight

Bridge

Play first two lines of verse. No vox.

w/verse
One light, one mind flashing in the dark
Blinded by the silence of a thousand broken hearts
For crying out loud, she screamed unto me
A free for all, fuck em all, you are your own sight

w/chorus
The minority x4

Play intro

MACY'S DAY PARADE

Today's the Macys Day Parade
The night of the living dead is on its way
With a credit report for a duty call

w/verse
It's a lifetime guarantee
Stuffed in a coffin "10% more free"
Red light special at the mausoleum

Bridge
Give me something that I need
Satisfaction guaranteed to you
What's the consolation prize?
Economy sized dreams of hope

w/verse
When I was a kid I thought
I wanted all the things that I haven't got
Oh, I learned the hardest way

w/verse
Then I realized what it took
To tell the difference between
Thieves and crooks
When all along it was me and you

Give me something that I need
Satisfaction guaranteed

Because I'm thinking about
A brand new hope
The one I've never known
'cause now I know
It's all that I wanted

Instrumental w/verse

w/bridge
What's the consolation prize?
Economy sized dreams of hope
Give me something that I need
Satisfaction guaranteed

w/chorus
Because I'm thinking about
A brand new hope
The one I've never known
And where it goes

w/chorus
And I'm thinking about
The only road
The one I've never known
And where it goes

w/chorus
Because I'm thinking about
A brand new hope
The one I've never known
'cause now I know
It's all that I wanted
