Track Name: All For The Girls
Hey Kid in the back with your arms crossed
You Won’t dance, and now you’re mad you just
Shut down anything that ain’t comin’ right
Up your narrow ass indie-rock alley, go

Back To the coffee shop and shut the folk up
You’re just mad because you just broke up
Shit, man I can’t stand it and now you’re talking trash- Get
Down or get out I’ma tell you what it’s all about:

I don’t do it for the glory
That’s a common misconception
‘Cause with very few exceptions
I do it all for the girls! Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah!
I do it all for the girls! Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah!
I do it all for the girls! Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah!
I do it all for the girls! Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah!
I do it all for the…

Hey haters take a number, form a line I guess
You just forgot who’s got the spotlight and the mic, c’mon
Shut your phone off and cut those little quips, we’re turnin’
Up the guitar, take your girl by the hips we’re going

Back To the basics, gotta teach her how to twist and now
You’re just jealous and you’re ballin’ up your fist! Bull
Shit stays out the door, take it out on the dance floor
Down boy, alpha male, scream it till I’m sore:

I don’t do it for the glory
That’s a common misconception
‘Cause with very few exceptions
I do it all for the girls! Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah!
I do it all for the girls! Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah!
I do it all for the girls! Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah!
I do it all for the girls! Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah!
I do it all for the…
Track Name: Sinner Takes All
Big City, First time
Streets of gold, women and wine
Boozin' and Usin' and i'm takin what's mine
So if your record's clean you're committing a crime

Straighten up, no thanks
I'll take my dirty money and put it in the bank
While I'm at it, I'll rub it in your face
Don't need no full house, I'm a standalone ace

If you wanna win, you gotta be mean
So wear gloves if you wanna keep your hands clean
The world has one rule, that I obey
Sinner takes all, so get out of my way
Sinner takes all! (Sinner takes all)

Black shoes, shark fin
Sharpening my teeth and i'm ready to win
I'm stealin and I'm dealin and I'm getting paid
My life is ecstasy cause I'm always getting laid

If you wanna win, you gotta be mean
So wear gloves if you wanna keep your hands clean
The world has one rule, that I obey
Sinner takes all, so get out of my way
Sinner takes all! (Sinner takes all)

You got greed, you got lust
Gluttony, and wrath's a must
When you got money, who needs trust?
I hit you one more time before you go bust

If you wanna win, you gotta be mean
So wear gloves if you wanna keep your hands clean
The world has one rule, that I obey
Sinner takes all, so get out of my way
Sinner takes all! (Sinner takes all)
Track Name: Sweat Me Loud
A Tender touch can do so much,
I know I shouldn't but you're makin' me blush
So I sit on my hands before they fly away

Sur La Fênetre, Tarte Cerise
Mon Cherie, I'm on my knobby knees
I'm tryin' to be good, but it's not easy for me

Strip Me Down, if you want to
Mess Me round, if you want to
Sweat Me Loud, if you want to
In the mornin' I'll be leavin' town

Shake Me harder and faster
It's not your heart that I'm after
If you're reelin' I can show you how
There's a time for love and it ain't right now

Alright you got me, you wore me down
Long as you know we're just foolin' around
You tryna take me places with your stare
Tryna tell you, I'm already there

We gotta get a few things straight
I'll be your lover, no mistake
But if you think I'm gonna make you mine
You'll be waiting for a long damn time

Strip Me Down, if you want to
Mess Me round, if you want to
Sweat Me Loud, if you want to
In the mornin' I'll be leavin' town

Shake Me harder and faster
It's not your heart that I'm after
If you're reelin' I can show you how
There's a time for love and it ain't right now

If you really wanna Sweat Me Loud, ya say (Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
C'mon, babe, Sweat Me Loud (Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Ahhhh Sweat me loud! (Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)

(Chorus)
Track Name: Become The Night
From this height, I see everything below
Good and bad, lost and found, the things you’ll never want to know
From this height, upon the tower, the city looks so small
It’s only me against the shadows, I am become the darkest knight

And as I dive, the lights and colors blur
And as I dive, the streets rise to greet me
It’s alright, I’ve done it all so many times before
It’s alright, it all belongs to me

Become the night! Become the night!
I can die but I cannot be killed
Become the night! Become the Night!
If I don’t fight, who will
Become the night ! Become the night!
Two shots can start a war that never ends
Become the night! Become the Night!
Waking nightmare, but in dreams I walk with them

I wear the mask, so the sun won’t see my face
And when it sets, I tear it off, throw it to the fireplace
Across the sky they carve my name, I hear a million desperate screams
Broken bones will be my signature, they’ll know what vengeance means

And as I drive, the city parts before me
It's alright, I know the streets too well
And on this night, the cackle of a madman splits the clouds above
But it’s alright, I’ll drag him to my hell
Track Name: The Basement
Now I'm not one to whine
Or gaze at shoes to pass the time
So what, the girls don't call
Got a stack of trades to break my fall

We could never drink and drive (No!)
Tried to get the car, my mom said said (No!)

It's friday night, I'm not going out
I'm going down, just like Bruce and Barbara
Alfred, Dick, and even Jason!
I'm going to the basement!

Wall to wall with DVD's
Fingers thick with nacho cheese
Comic book carpet, wash your hands
You turn the page you wash your hands

Now I'm not the type to cry
but I got choked up when kirk's dad died
So what if the girls don't get it
Long as I've got trek, no need to sweat it

We would never button mash, No!
Gettin' Blisters Playin' Super Smash, Woah!

It's Saturday, you got no place to go
There's a movie marathon below
Bring Dr. Pepper, make a statement
I pledge allegiance to the basement!
Track Name: Banned In Japan
We’ve been having trouble just keeping a crowd
Nobody’s been dancing and we’re playing too loud
All the good clubs have kicked us out
So we’re going transpacific to make Tokyo shout

The risin’ sun is killing me, it’s comin’ too bright
I gotta wear my shades after what happened last night
Record breakin’ riot, the van went up in flames
The police gonna tell you rock ‘n roll is to blame

Too much flash is gonna make you go blind
And too much fame will drive you outta your mind
I don’t care, I’m working hard as I can to get us banned
B-B-B-Banned in Japan!
Banned in Japan!
Banned in Japan!
Banned in Japan!

You know the fight was long but we’re halfway done
A challenger approaches when a battle is won
We’re filling up the theaters, we’re on a barrel roll
The combo meter’s full, we’re flyin’ out of control

Got all the critics scared and they’re out on the run
Girl, we got some bruises- but ain’t we havin’ fun?
Easy overdoes it got no diplomatic Tact
We’re gonna get deported, I don’t wanna go back!
No, Shibuya’s where it’s at!
Track Name: Mustang
In days of old when knights were bold
A man had steel and steed
A sword to fight, A horse to ride
Back then, That's all you need

Knights are gone, Time marched on
And chivalry has died
But I still got my steel and steed
It's a mustang that I ride

I won't take no Coupe Toyota
I need a little baby with a detroit motor

Mustang!
Mustang!
Mustang!
Hammer to the floor and my hands in the air

Got a leather jacket, got it painted on the back
It says "Leader of the Pack"
Now my collar's up, my window's down
I'm never comin' back

A perfect Ten from Sixty-Nine,
with a Cobra jet V-8
She's a fastback shaker, when I meet my maker
I know I won't be late

I won't take no Coupe Toyota
I need a little baby with a detroit motor

Mustang!
Mustang!
Mustang!
Hammer to the floor and my hands in the air

The roads was slick and the air was thick
with teenage wanderlust
Didn't pack no bags, just a full tank of gas
Los Angeles or bust

I tried to drift when I hit that curve
Despite the driving rain
When they found me in that drainage ditch
They had to use a crane

A James Dean Death and a V8 Ford
Tell me who could ask for more?

Mustang!
Mustang!
Mustang!
Devil's got me in a hole 'n still I'm boogiein' with Bolan, screamin'
Mustang!
Mustang!
Mustang!

M-U-S-T-A-N-G
Track Name: Kill Your Boyfriend
When we met it was just you and me
and we had so much fun
I always thought that when the time was right
that I would be the one
Just when I thought I'd finally built up the nerve
there's a stranger sleeping in your bed
All the sudden I've got nothing to lose
I'd be happier if he was head

I wanna kill your boyfriend
I wanna set fire to his house
I wanna lock all the doors and windows
so there's no chance of survivin'
wanna kill your boyfriend
and if I should see him on the street
I'm just gonna hit him with my car and keep on drivin'

You know I woulda done it all for you
But you still said "no way"
I wrote a couple dozen songs for you
But you just threw them away
You know that you meant the world to me
You only saw me as an empty threat
You never took me very seriously
Well, that's something that you're gonna regret

I wanna kill your boyfriend
I wanna set fire to his house
I wanna lock all the doors and windows
so there's no chance of survivin'
wanna kill your boyfriend
and if I should see him on the street
I'm just gonna hit him with my car and keep on drivin'

I'll never forget the first time I saw you walk into class
Following behind my girl and watching her ass
I couldn't believe she could fall for your cliché charms
Next thing I know she's all wrapped up in your suntanned arms
I did everything I could to keep her by my side
but she was a sucker for your swimmer's bod and your phony smile
I can't stand to see the two of you touch
God dammit, I hate you so fucking much

I wanna kill your boyfriend
I wanna set fire to his house
I wanna lock all the doors and windows
so there's no chance of survivin'
wanna kill your boyfriend
and if I should see him on the street
I'm just gonna hit him with my car and keep on drivin'

I wanna kill your boyfriend
I wanna see the smoke rise in the air
I wanna see it all come burning down
Kill your boyfriend
I wanna feel him crushed beneath my wheels
I want him to know how bad that feels
Kill your boyfriend
Track Name: See You In Hell
I know it's a little cliche
to say goodbye this way
But girl, we been together so long
I figure I owe you one more song.

We drank deep from a cup, poured by cupid
But I guess the potion must have been diluted
Cuz Somewhere in there, love's labors were lost
You were my sunshine, now you're my little hoth

Though we pretended our hearts stayed true,
I wasn't an angel, and neither were you
Once upon a time, we heard wedding bells
But no more wine and roses, just this rotting smell
Just remember, this isn't goodbye- It's I'LL SEE YOU IN HELL

(Chorus)
Like a worm, you're in my Heart
Making holes that are never to close
Like a hole, in my head
I need you baby, what I need you is dead

i burned that picture of us,
with the tie-dye sky
The edges curled like a bittersweet smile
and I started to cry

But what about the things that just wouldn't burn?
That ring of gold? Well truth be told, next time I'll learn
If she wants a trinket to make love out of lust,
I won't buy her anything that lasts longer than us

Though I know that you may cry too,
When your tears are fallin' they don't just fall on you
They're hittin' your new guy on

Just remember, this isn't goodbye- It's I'LL SEE YOU IN HELL

Like a worm, you're in my Heart
Making holes that are never to close
Like a hole, in my head
I need you baby, what I need you is dead
Track Name: Just Dandy
I know I'm skinny but I ain't pretty
I ride the bus, and I don't cash fat checks

But that don't stop me, I'm the king of this city
Mad modern monarchy: La Ville, C'est Moi

That's not to say that I ain't seen some rough days
It's just my coat that has the silver lining

Ripped off, put down, I had to learn the hard way:
On your back in the gutter you can see the stars

My dog days are done
My rat race is run
You know I aim to stun
But baby, I don't need a gun to blow you away

I'm doin' just Dandy
(Ay-yay-yay-yay-yay)
Black magic in a white suit
(white suit white suit)

And I've been feelin' just Dandy
(Ay-yay-yay-yay-yay)
Silver bow tie and wings on my sneakers
Crank up the Kinks Till it Blows out my Speakers

Drop a needle on me, I feel groovy
Black strat on attack, I'm bringing Beatle Boots Back

C'mon take a picture, Put me in a movie
Just shoot me! Shoot me! Lemme see that flash

You can't stop me, You can't stop me
You can't stop me flying through the air

You won't see me, You won't see me
Pushin' up the throttle, God help you when I hit mach one
