Track Name: Positive Guy
Everybody knows that i'm a positive guy
Everybody loves to laugh
Everybody laughs behind my back
But i'm a positive guy
Yeah i'm a positive guy

Everybody is together without me
Everybody is better off without me
Everybody wants me dead
a smile shaped bulls-eye on my head
cause i'm a positive guy
yeah i'm a positive guy

I'm not a positive guy
Yeah i'm a positive guy
(repeat too many times)

Everybody is dancing on my grave
Everybody is singing at my wake
Everyone turns mean,
Hostile and bitter
Cause i'm a positive guy
yeah i'm a positive guy
yeah i'm a positive guy
yeah i'm a positive guy
Track Name: Hypochondriac
A manic wind has swept across these still and temperate seas
The softest tremor wakes me from my sleep
The heavy cloud that hangs, high above my head is bleak
I feel the symptoms rising up like steam

I know i don't cope well with fear
I see storm clouds when everything looks clear
You are all infected, you are all diseased
Just as I suspected, you're plotting against me

A panic wave will break upon the window by my bed
Terror soaked, a fucking joke, I cant control me head
The fight is drained from tired bones, alone, I have no choice, I run
But shattered glass is everywhere I step

And I know i cant let go of a grudge
I see malice when all there is is love
You are all waiting there right around the bend
My friends are my enemies, they'll get me in the end.
Track Name: There Are No Guards In This Prison
They all dance in the rain
and I get wet
They all bask in the sun
and I sweat

And these white walls
They get real old real fast
And these bright lights
They get real dark real fast

Is it better to be sad than be a fool
Get drunk get laid and be a tool
Seems to be more fun than I am having
Trapped in these white walls
In these white wall

They all run through the sand
I trip and fall
They all speak with conviction
Me, I hit a wall

And this pale paint
It peels right off right quick
and these cheap blinds
Cant keep me safe from it

Is it better to be sad than be a fool
Get drunk get laid and be a tool
Seems to be more fun than I am having
Trapped in these white walls
In these white wall

This prison has no guards,
But me
And this jail cells
as cold as it could be
Track Name: Death of the Hobo
Put on the slacks the tie, the nine to five
Stab me with a fork, am I alive?
Is this what we call happiness?
To sit in a chair and watch it die

The death of the hobos
The death of me
The death of the hobo
I bet he died happy, happier than me
The death of the hobos
the death of me
what the fuck do i know? What the fuck did I see?

Put on the tub the time is dying here
Water down the whisky and dull my spear
Is this what we call happiness?
a car, a roof, a buck, a fucking beer

The death of the hobos
The death of me
The death of the hobo
I bet he died happy, happier than me
The death of the hobos
the death of me
what the fuck do i know? What the fuck did I see?
The death of the hobo
the death of the hobo
