Track Name: Box Tops For Humiliation
Part one:

I'm far enough away that now
My street is just a line on a grid
A stripe across my favorite shirt
The scared face of an ugly kid

I'm so high above the ground
My fear of heights means nothing now
I'd die before I hit the ground
And live my life the whole way down

You know I don't believe in God
Everything is temporary
But I'm seeing things i can't explain
This morning seemed so ordinary

I'm far enough away that now
My street is just a line on a grid...

(this seems important)

Part two:

Hard to get to
By minutes missed you
I need just two
I'll sing this song and I'm gone
There's no way I can go on
That's it I'm done. This scene it's bigger than me

You try to split to
See who'll miss you
You take a chance
New avenues to explore
It wasn't like this before
That's it. I'm done

It's never getting better
A sinking ship, a total failure
they've name disasters after me

Nothing is worth the effort
Forget me. Do yourselves the favor
This is where I deserve to be...

So kill your mistress
Dismiss her interests
Refine your craft
A mind of taste takes it's toll
A student of Rock & Roll
I quit. I'm done. This scene is too big for me

The lights have rusted
My sight's adjusted
But not my ears
How could I forget my favorite song
Has it really been that long?

It's never getting better
A sinking ship, a total failure
they've name disasters after me

Nothing is worth the effort
Forget me. Do yourselves the favor
I don't think that I want to be

A student of Rock & Roll

I'm far enough away that now
I just really don't give a shit...
Track Name: Mavis Beacon Teaches Whatever
I've been having a real tough time
Finding a logical reason why
I shouldn't just give up and die
And now you have given me one more reason to

[verse missing]

All I need are friends I can choose to ignore
And a lover who will tell me that she doesn't love me anymore
The kind of person I've killed in my mind
One who can imagine killing me too
