Pack your bags now Don't you feel a bit insecure? It's natural Now sell your past You don't need it anymore It's called Americanization So if you've come here for salvatoin Please wait in line We take our time We take no reservations Give us a break We're heaven in the making America dear Religion's a fast food restaurant here America dear God works via satellite here And we wish you were here We wish you were here One more for the numbers dear We wish you were here We wish you were here One more for the numbers dear How do you like your nation? You've paid full price Quite an exotic sensation To be a lonely awkward nation So pack your bags now Don't you feel a bit peculiar? It's natural Now sell your past You don't need it anymore We call it Americanization So if you've come here for salvation Please wait in line We take our time And make no accusation Give us a break We're heaven in the making America dear Religion's a fast food restaurant here America dear God works via satellite here We wish you were here We wish you were here One more for the numbers dear We wish you were here We wish you were here One more for the numbers dear How do you like your nation? You've paid full price Quite an exotic sensation To be a lonely awkward nation And it's a fucked up situation A kingdom of bastards, mixed procreation And our freedom is a masturbation Feel free to cry We've sold a lie But if you've come here for salvation Please wait in line We take our time And save your aggrevation Give us a break We're heaven in the making America dear Religion's a fast food restaurant here America dear God works via satellite here And we wish you were here We wish you were here One more for the numbers dear We wish you were here We wish you were here One more for the numbers here We wish you were here, oh One more for the numbers here We wish you were here, oh One more for the numbers here How do you like your nation? You've paid full price Quite an exotic sensation To be a lonely awkward nation

Hey, hey Has anyone seen my wave? Hey, could it be here beneath all this junk mail? Opportunity could have come and gone Television's been on In case I don't hear him knock I leave the door unlocked Chorus: I've been watching the world, every channel for days Stranded with bed sores I'm a living room castaway But pretty soon I'm-a-get buff for the summer Bummer, summer's ended yesterday What day is it anyway? What day is it anyway? A living room castaway Hey, my body is a temple to the gods in my ashtray And my mind has been selling memories for videotapes And my heart has been falling apart Oh, nevermind We missed the preview Rewind it back to the start They're the best part Repeat Chorus How long have I been drifting along in this couch anyway? How long have I been drifting along in this couch anyway?

Hendrix is dead, but I think he's hiding out with Jim Morrison As the ghosts of the radio question the faith in my head Janis come quickly You're missing the real thing (Janis why don't you come home?) Maybe we're making your halo from smoke rings (Maybe we're making them) We know I... I wanna know At twenty-seven do legends die? I... I wanna know After I break through the other side Cobain is dead, gunshot wound straight to the head And now his colors have bled to make the sky sweet cherry red Janis come quickly You're missing the real thing (Janis why don't you come home?) Maybe we're making your halo from smoke rings (Maybe we're making them) We know We know I... I wanna know At twenty-seven do legends die? I... I wanna know After I break through the other side I... I wanna know How many out there are really there? We take all their horns with their wings Legends once...were living things We know I... I wanna know At twenty-seven do legends die? I... I wanna know After I break through the other side I... I wanna know How many of you out there are high? I... I wanna know How many of you are really there? We know We know We know We know We know, yeah, yeah We know, yeah, yeah We know, yeah, yeah I Don't Mind In My Bed

I've fallen In every little thing that's happened I've fallen down Forgive me For every little thing that's happened Forgive me now Oh, she's a fallen angel from the sky Caught along the way and I'm all... In every little thing that's happened, ooh I've fallen For every little wicked romance I've fallen down Forgive me For letting there be second chances Forgive me now Oh, she's a fallen angel from the sky I wish you would fly for the sake of my gun shot you down You're the only one And you'll be alright It'll be alright I wish you would fly for the sake of my gun shot you down You're the only one And you'll be alright It'll be alright It'll be alright It'll be alright I wanna see I've fallen In every little thing that's happened I've fallen down Forgive me For every little thing that's happened Forgive me now I've fallen In every little thing that's happened I've fallen down I've fallen down I've fallen down I've fallen down I've fallen down

Pink chiffon Black mustache He was everything in a woman Except he was a man And as he walked along he'd always shake his ass And his hair was always frizzy 'Cause dizzy was the way he danced And when people say people like him just don't belong Sometimes I think We get the rules all wrong Chorus: 'Cause what goes up don't always come down And what you find in dreams may never be found But if you listen close, baby You may just hear the sound Of what's going around Coming back around Oh, we're coming back around A copper girl With an ethnic sash She was a model for a culture that survived a brutal past And when I'd smile at her she'd always smile back And her hair was always frizzy She said it's always been like that So when people say people like her just don't belong Sometimes, I know We get the rules all wrong Repeat Chorus Yeah, we're coming back around A melting pot of prejudice If this country's found on freedom Why do we act like this? Repeat Chorus Sha da da da da da na na, hey, yeah Sha da da da da da na na, hey, yeah Sha da da da da da na na, hey, yeah Sha da da da da da na na, hey, yeah

I am just a wall And I see things that no one sees And nobody talks to me Crumbling So many holes to fill I hope I don't have a spill again 'Cause I'm stumbling Handing me hand-me-downs Life has trapped me inside this little town If I could figure out a way to get out Oh, I would shout it out If I could figure out a way to get out Oh, I would shout it out I am just a wall And I see things that no one sees And nobody talks to me Bumbling Perfect words don't come Can't get them to roll off of my tongue So I'm fumbling Time puts cracks in my skin And I feel over before I begin If I could figure out a way to get out Oh, I would shout it out If I could figure out a way to get out Oh, I'd shout it out I am just a wall And I see things that no one sees And nobody talks to me I am just a wall I am just a wall See things that no one sees I am just a wall Nobody talks to me I am just a wall And I see things that no one sees And nobody talks to me I am just a wall And I know that I'll never live Oh... If I could figure out how to get out, I would But I am just a wall

I'm green I'm envy Trapped in a little crayon box And I have seen my ending If yellow and blue stop shaking hands This situation I'm in all depends... Chorus: If we can blend the brown and red With the yellow and the white After all, what are we defending? If we can blend the brown and red With the yellow and the white We might stop this unhappy ending Now, how long can we bend without breaking? Can a colored world still make amends? And as we draw ourselves outside the lines Making new colors we can't define We'll find it's too hard choosing sides Repeat Chorus Suit yourself It's a colored world, where all depends upon the falling stars And remembering all the scars that haunt us in this life With color cutting like a knife Believe We look the same when we bleed Shot you down Do we need to compete? And as the rainbow falls apart We want a new start We all want a new start Everybody wants a new start We all want a new start Repeat Chorus (2x) Now... Stop the ending now As the rainbow falls apart We all want a new start We all want a new start

A dreamy spoon And a pink eyed sun Make sense of this kiss Dressed in morning breath Never before tolerated Before this crush And a mob of mutinous magazine models Matched with the whirlings of dervishes harmonize In a delicate divide To make a head of hair to crown love She is lying here before me sleeping Hit the deck 'Cause I'm comin' in And you can bet I'm swinging Fairy tales And old friends yesterday kept unite Night after night To make a gallery of ghosts to guard her from this crush And a mob of mutinous magazine models Matched with the whirlings of dervishes harmonize In a delicate divide To make a head of hair to crown love She is lying here before me sleeping In her garden of bad dream's flowers She can't help herself from watering Lying here before me sleeping Hit the deck 'Cause I'm comin' in And you can bet I'm swinging Hit the deck 'Cause I'm comin' in And you can bet I'm swinging And I will drive my Cinderella's pumpkin carriage Oh, and I will wash her clean of the germs that cut in my dance Bring the bathwater Dodging death And fate's bad plans for me again I will give up the stardom of hell To be a slave in her own little heaven I pray She is lying here before me sleeping In her garden of bad dream's flowers She can't help herself from watering, yeah, yeah From watering From watering From watering Oh... Oh... Oh...

I want a National Geographic I want to see the world I'm just a mess of old photographs and videos And all of the best friends in life that I've met We're just actors from movies and roles from books I've read Feeling dead like history Pages of bad magazines I don't want to see the world in black and white Feeling dead, I'm history Dreaming's got the best of me I don't want to see the world in black and white I want to be a successful man I want to dent this world I'll stop off to give autographs and cameos And all of the places in life that I've seen Are vacations I stole from the drive-in silver screen Feeling dead like history Opportunity, remember me? I don't want to see the world in black and white Feeling dead, I'm history Experience never got to me And I don't want to see the world in black and white Oh, white So long Help me 'cause I don't belong So long I want to come along I want the shadow of Peter Pan I want to own this world I want to never wake up from my dreams 'Cause all of my life that I've made sweet has soured I've seen my own death on the prime time hour Feeling dead like history Riddle me with tragedy I don't want to see the world in black and white Feeling dead, I'm history Overthrow me, catastrophe I don't want to see the world in black and white Alright So long Help me 'cause I don't belong So long Everything real always feels so wrong So long I don't want to borrow my best anymore So long Now I'm swinging to the motions of (So long) What once was where everything seemed possible (So long) 'Cause in dreams I never had to push and shove (So long) And now I'm swinging to the motions of (So long) I don't want to sing this song anymore on my own (So long) 'Cause everybody's out there livin' the life that I thought I owned (So long) And now I'm waiting to find out now what I thought, I thought I was (So long) And now I'm swinging to the motions of (So long) Love, love, love, love, love

Have you ever been blue? Afraid to see what's right in front of Well, you know It seems to be easier To give it all up and out It seems my dreams need means that I am without My Botticelli ballerina Which do you prefer? The violet or the rose And if I had the fruits of a laboring pirate's dream Which would you rather? Silver or gold Chorus: When hearts collide like fireflies lost in the shooting star shower I will chase the sunset west to keep the day alive one more hour But I'm eaten alive by the butterflies And the petals of daisies as I Pace beneath the hair hanging from Rapunzel's tower From her tower From...oh, oh Forgive me if I'm blue But love does funny things to a man sometimes We work off of one heart instead of two Packing the other away for a rainy day In case love stops feeling brand new My Botticelli ballerina Dancing in the dark How do you move the way you do? What a beautiful curse and wicked bliss To be confined to one heart in a world where It's impossible to know love without two When hearts collide like fireflies lost in the shooting star shower I will chase the sunset west to keep the day alive one more hour But I'm eaten alive by the butterflies And the petals of daisies as I Pace beneath the hair hanging from Rapunzel's tower From her tower From her tower From her tower When hearts collide like fireflies lost in the shooting star shower I will chase the sunset west to keep the day alive one more hour But I'm eaten alive by the butterflies And the petals of daisies as I Pace beneath the hair hanging from Rapunzel's tower From her tower From her tower From her tower

Goodbye summer Hello to the fall It's a bummer Life's better moments race by like dragstrip cars We wait I'm waiting Life goes way too fast So we must move on Say we will So we won't 'Cause this feeling's almost gone All gone Welcome winter Freezing every tear Two little splinters That stab in our back to bring on another year We wait I'm waiting Life goes way too fast So we must move on Say we will So we won't 'Cause this feeling's almost gone All gone Do you smell spring? (Smell spring) Life finds a way somehow Voices will sing (Voices will sing) Loud with the sound as life's merry-go-rounds us now We wait I'm waiting Life goes way too fast So we must move on Say we will So we won't 'Cause this feeling's almost gone (As days go by One year dies) Almost gone (As days go by One year dies) Another year (As days go by One year dies) Almost gone (As days go by) Another year (One year dies) Another year Goodbye summer Goodbye Goodbye summer What a life What a life Goodbye summer What a life
