Honorable Mention

I served out my detention
And in the end I got an honorable mention

In the movie of my life
Starring you
Instead of me

When the moonlight
Hits your bright eyes I go blind
And maybe next time
I'll remember not to tell you something stupid like I'll never leave your side

Like the oldest movie I ever saw was the one we wrote together
I said I hate you but I'd never change a thing
I can be your John Cusack

I burnt out
My defensive
Now everything I say is taken as offensive

In the movie of my life (movie of my life.. yeah)
Starring you
Instead of me

When the moonlight
Hits your bright eyes I go blind
And maybe next time
I'll remember not to tell you something stupid like I'll never leave your side

Like the oldest movie I ever saw was the one we wrote together
I said I hate you but I'd never change a thing
I can be your John Cusack

Oldest movie I ever saw was the one we wrote together
I said I hate you but I'd never change a thing
I can be your John Cusack
Be your John Cusack
I can be your John Cusack

Calm Before The Storm (Old Version)


I sat outside my front window...this story's going somewhere:
"He's well hung," and I am hanging up.
Well there's a song on the radio that says:
"Let's get this party started."
So let's get this party started.

What you do on your own time's just fine.
My imagination's much worse, I just never want to know.
What meant the world imploaded faded and demoted
All my oxygen to product gas and suffocated my last chance

You said, between your smiles and regrets: "Don't say it's over."
Dead and gone. Dead and gone.
Calm before the storm set it off, and the sun burnt out tonight.
A reception less than warm set it off, and the sun burnt out tonight.

The next time the phone can wring my neck it gets no answer
and of the time that I've spent telling it my roots
I'm shaking in my boots
But still it looks at me like an old friend I've betrayed
the darkside of the doormat is the one your shoes have frayed

What you do on your own time's just fine.
My imagination's much worse, I just never want to know.
What meant the world imploded, inflated then demoted all my oxygen
to product gas and suffocated my last chance.

You said, between your smiles and regrets: "Don't say it's over."
Dead and gone. Dead and gone.
Calm before the storm set it off, and the sun burnt out tonight.
A reception less than warm set it off, and the sun burnt out tonight.

Switchblades And Infidelity

Walking out on the show is walking out on you
And walking out on you's still the best thing that I ever did.

Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode

Well, I'm looking out at you obscured by the stand up arcade
And the sound of the descendents.
Your smile reminds me of switchblades and infidelity.

Walking out on the show is walking out on you
And walking out on you's still the best thing that I ever did.

Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode

One, two, three, four
Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode, yeah
Last night I saw my world explode

Pretty In Punk

Walking off that stage tonight
I know what you're thinking
"He stands alone because he's high on himself"
But if you only knew..

I was terrified and would you mind if I
sat next to you and watched you smile
So many kids but I only see you
And I don't think you notice me
Well I've seen your boyfriend
and I don't think he treats you right
But that's none of my business is it?

I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no

The only girl who ever gave me the time
was the one who only wanted five minutes of mine
Knocking boots in the back,
How degrading is that?
I decline

I'm too terrified and would you mind if I
sat next to you and watched you smile
So many kids but I only see you
And I don't think you notice me
Well I've seen your boyfriend
and I don't think he treats you right
But that's none of my business is it?

I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no

I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no

I'm not the way you think I am, no
I'm not the way you think I am, no, no

Growing Up

I dried my eyes, now I crust them with sleep
I'll crust them over
She begged me "Don't hate me"
She spun me a story
Where winning looks like losing
And I'm winning every time
So thread spools, sweetie, get ready
Until my silk is sold

Growing up, whoa
Growing up, whoa
Growing up

Yeah
I'll find myself anew
Yeah
I'll find myself anew

I've dried my eyes, now it's "Rushmore"
I'm deep with futures like Chicago
No, Glenview never meant a thing to me
She never meant a thing to me
'Cept for putting idealists in a body bag
Forget it,
I'll go out tonight and piss on her doorstep
And listen to The Misfits "Where Eagles Dare" to swallow whole

Up, whoa
Growing up, whoa
Growing up

Go!

Whoa-oh-oh
I guess I'm my own better half
Whoa-oh-oh
I guess I'm my own better half
Whoa, yeah
I guess I'm on my own
Yeah, yeah
I guess I'm on my own
Yeah
I guess I'm on my own
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I guess I'm on my own

The World's Not Waiting (For Five Tired Boys And A Broken Down Van)

This might just be a waste of time
there's no one I'd rather waste
My time with than all my best friends
So start the car up

We'll all take turns not for the worst
We're all "hasbeens" and "never-were's"
And we're all in the back singing "Roxanne"
Just watching life pass us by
Pass us by

As if we cared
Enough to try to catch up
Enough to make up for lost time
Enough to make up for lost time, yeah

We've been down
We've been out
We've been hanging 'round
Tip our glasses to no direction, yeah
Start the van
Get me out of this one horse town
Waste this night

We've been down
We've been out
We've been hanging 'round
Tip our glasses to no direction, yeah
Start the van
Get me out of this one horse town
Waste this night
Waste this night

We've been down
We've been out
We've been hanging 'round
Tip our glasses to no direction, yeah
Start the van
Get me out of this one horse town
Waste this night

Short, Fast, And Loud

She's shallow like the shoreline during low tide
But my hopes are not quite as high
Can't spot her faults but she spotted mine
She left me for herself
Considering I would too

Go figure, I'm bigger than that
Go figure, I'm bigger than that

The battles only halfway done
I might look young
But I'm no less defeated
How's the weather up there?

She left me for herself
Considering I would too

Good God I wish I was tall
Good God I wish
Good God I wish I was tall
Good God I wish
Good God I wish I was tall
Good God I wish
Good God I wish I was tall
Good God I wish

Go figure, I'm bigger than that
Go figure, I'm bigger than that
Go figure, I'm bigger than that
Go figure, I'm bigger than that

Moving Pictures

Last night I saw a movie
and I thought about many movies I've seen at your house
excuse me if I'm rude
but I'd rather that we just strike from the record ones I'd see again without you
leaning on my shoulder
distracting me from the plotline

Where can I go when I want you around
but I can't stand to be around you
"Go home"
I'll walk myself to you
I'll walk myself away from here

"Go to hell" is all I thought for seven weeks
but I grew out of that phase looking at these broken photographs of people
looking glossed just like the way I still remember a summer ago

Where can I go when I want you around
but I can't stand to be around you
"Go home"
I'll walk myself to you
I'll walk myself away from here

"Call me back"
I'm pleading with a bottle cork in my head
It wouldn't be the first time
my pillow has been mistaken

Where can I go when I want you around
but I can't stand to be around you
"Go home"
I'll walk myself to you
I'll walk myself away from here

Can't stand to be around you
Around you, around you
Can't stand to be around you
I can't stand, can't stand
To be around you
Around you
Around you
Around you...

Parker Lewis Can't Lose (But I'm Going To Give It My Best Shot)

You laughed off my affections
While I passed by your direction
I should have known from your walk, yeah
It was the end of you

It's not like I don't respect your opinion
Your quick wit lips, just rip me apart
Sometimes, it's times like this, yeah

I got a big mouth
And maybe you could handle shutting it up
A simple contradiction
Could shake my whole foundation
Parker Lewis can't lose

Taking back every step towards you
Still failing at everything I do
In the meantime just talking with my shoes
Converse with my Converse
At least they hear a word I say
And scrutinize it
Just as far as they can tell what I'm getting at
Tied my tongue around my neck
For the last time

It's not like I don't respect your opinion
Your quick wit lips, just tear me apart
Sometimes, it's times like this, yeah

I got a big mouth
And maybe you could handle shutting it up
A simple contradiction
Could shake my whole foundation
Parker Lewis can't lose, yeah
Yeah
Yeah

This is the last song about you
This is the last song that I waste on you
