Track Name: Stealing Office Supplies
Think of all the hours we spend
Working for those who don’t give a shit
Rip you off at any chance they get
Might as well take a couple paper clips

‘cause we’re stealing
OFFICE SUPPLIES OFFICE SUPPLIES
We’re stealing – ‘cause it’s the least I could do for you
We’re stealing
OFFICE SUPPLIES OFFICE SUPPLIES
We’re stealing – my little way of saying fuck you

Benefits and raises get slashed
So rich assholes can pocket more cash
Honesty isn’t in their lexicon
They’ll never notice that all their pens are gone
Empty promises of promotion
Enough staples to fill an ocean
You’ll never be found out so
Take anything that isn’t nailed . . . DOWN

‘cause we’re stealing
OFFICE SUPPLIES OFFICE SUPPLIES
We’re stealing – ‘cause it’s the least I could do for you
We’re stealing
OFFICE SUPPLIES OFFICE SUPPLIES
We’re stealing – fuck you!
Track Name: Set You Off
I know you love me
So what's your trip?
Why are you trying to control me?
Tightening your grip
Every single move I make
Under your watchful eye
I'm driving you nuts
And I'm not even trying

The little things
That set you off
The little things
That make you crazy

Don’t like the way I walk
Can’t stand the way I drive
Don’t like the way I talk
I’ve got nothing to hide
Every single move I make

Under your watchful eye
I’m driving you nuts
And I don’t even know why

The little things
That set you off
The little things
That make you crazy

I'm gonna set you off
One last time
Track Name: Kill Us
Keep it all on the shelf
Or jump around and hurt yourself
How far will you let it take you?
Surrender to the habits that break you

The things we love will kill us
The things we love will kill us

Don't you wish you were dead
When you hear that one note symphony in your head?
A reminder of your own decay
Ignore it for another day

The things we love will kill us
The things we love will kill us

You made your bed now lie in it
Push hard enough to die in it
Stand still and waste away
Or move fast and get blown away
Track Name: Under The Bus
How did you feel when you hurt my feelings?
How did you feel
When you threw me under the bus?

Punished like an 8-year-old
WHEN YOU THREW ME UNDER THE BUS
Disapproved like I had something to prove
WHEN YOU THREW ME UNDER THE BUS
How did you feel when you hurt my feelings?
WHEN YOU THREW ME UNDER THE BUS
Stabbed in the back
(GO!)
Track Name: Rock & Roll Fuck Up
1-2-3-4
Messed up
Screwed up
Messed up
Screwed up
He's a rock & roll
He's a rock & roll fuck up

He's a rock & roll, he's a rock & roll fuck up
No woman in the world can make him less messed up
He's a rock & roll, he's a rock & roll fuck up
No money in the world can keep him from screwing up

She’s so Messed up
Screwed up
Messed up
Screwed up
She's a rock & roll, She's a rock & roll fuck up

She's a rock & roll, she's a rock & roll fuck up
No man in the world can make her less messed up
She's a rock & roll, she's a rock & roll fuck up
No money in the world can keep her from screwing up

I'm killing myself for rock & roll

He's a rock & roll, he's a rock & roll fuck up
No woman in the world can make him less messed up
He's a rock & roll, he's a rock & roll fuck up
Track Name: Surprise Vacation
You, you caught me off guard
When I came into work yesterday
And you told me I was going away

Forever, You
You told me yesterday
That I was leaving without pay

Surprise Vacation
Surprise Vacation
Surprise Vacation
Vacation from

You, you made my day
There was no better way
Than to take my livelihood away

From me, But now I see
I don't ever have to look at you again
Or pretend that you're my friend

Surprise Vacation
Surprise Vacation
Surprise Vacation
Vacation from

Being told what to do
Following your rules
Having money to eat
Not sleeping on the street
Wasting endless time
Avoiding living life
Staring outside the window

Surprise Vacation
Eternal Vacation
Eternally on Vacation
Vacation from you
Track Name: (You Turned My World) Upside Down
I had my life cut out for me
I saw the world how I wanted to see it
But when I saw you in action
it all changed suddenly
You beat her up I know
Now it's hard for me to show
How I really feel 'cause I don't want
to destroy those close to me

You turned my world upside down
I didn't ask for any of this
but when you hit you never miss
You turned my world upside down
I never asked for any of this
but when you hit you never miss a beat

Remember that time I slept on your floor
We talked bullshit and it poured
You drove and drove and drove and drove
And I can't think straight anymore
It makes me wonder what could be
Without time or money

Or circumstance or relationships
Or an ocean between you and me

You turned my world upside down
I didn't ask for any of this
but when you hit you never miss
You turned my world upside down
I never asked for any of this
but when you hit it hurts too much to know

I cried but I didn't tell anyone
I kept it all to myself
Track Name: Look Back In Anger
I said some things I shouldn't have said
Should have kept them to myself instead
I was wrong, I admit I was wrong

I'm very sorry when I look back at you
I was wrong, I made you cry
But isn't that what you want to hear?
I look back in anger, I look back at you
I look back in anger at you

I did some things you thought weren't good
Not quite the way you thought I should
I listened to your advice
Did what you said, never thought twice

I'm very sorry when I look back at you
I was wrong, I made you cry
Isn't that what you want to hear?
I look back in anger, I look back at you
I look back in anger at you
All the things you do
Track Name: Head Over Heels
11/14 and upside down
whiplash and smashing sound
Dickies blasting and feeling snubbed
Ambulance ride, you at the club

Going head over heels
Don't believe it

We felt like nothing could stop us
You felt like you were ready to drop us
Lived to see another day
You wanted us to go away

Going head over heels
Don't believe it

Life changes
It's not life changing

We felt like nothing could stop us
You felt like you were ready to drop us
Bloody seven inches, seven year itch
Seven feet from being dead in a ditch

Going head over heels
Don't believe it
Track Name: The Kids Don't Know What They Want
Build me up
just to let me down
Tell me something
to forget when I'm not around
Why - do I even try
When I know you'll just
you'll just change your mind

The kids don't know what they want

I'm not calling you a liar
But just as well
when you can't be counted on
How hard could it be to
express your desires
Impossible
you were here and now you're gone

The kids don't know what they want
What they want
The kids don’t know what they want
What they want
