Track Name: This Ain't No Picnic
(originally by Minutemen)

Working on the edge, losing my self-respect
for a man who presides over me, the principles of his creed
Punch in punch out 8 hours 5 days
sweat, pain and agony – on friday I’ll get paid

This ain't no picnic

Hey mister don't look down on me
for what I believe –
I got my bills and the rent. I should go pitch a tent
but our land isn't free, so I’ll work my youth away
in the land of a machine
I refuse to be a slave

This ain't no picnic
Track Name: I Want You Back
(originally by Jackson 5)

When I had you to myself
I didn't want you around
Those pretty faces always made you
Stand out in a crowd
But someone picked you from the bunch
One glance was all it took
Now it's much too late for me
To take a second look

Oh, baby, give me one more chance
To show you that I love you
Won't you please let me
Back in your heart
Oh, darling, I was blind to let you go
Let you go baby
But now since I see you in his arms
I want you back

Trying to live without your love
Is one long sleepless night
Let me show you girl
That I know wrong from right
Every street you walk on
I leave tear stains on the ground
Following the girl
I didn't even want around.
Track Name: Didn't Mean To
I didn't mean to waste your time
I didn't mean to be unkind
I was just trying to make you smile

I didn't mean to talk so loud
I didn't mean to act so tough
I was just trying to make you mine

I didn't mean all the things I said
I didn't want to cause you pain
I was just trying to break your heart
Track Name: Open The Door
(originally by The Men)

Sing a song, well I don't mind
Take a walk in the countryside
Tell your mama "not just yet
there's couple things that I want to forget"

I am wondering if you're thinking
About the words that I am singing
When I hear your guitar playin'
A lone tambourine ringing, sayin'

Change the world - I got no time
Instead I'll take the walk in the countryside
Tell your mama "not just yet
there's couple things that I want to forget"

Well, I am wondering if you're thinking
About the words that I am singing
When I hear your guitar playin'
A lone tambourine ringing, sayin'
Track Name: Waiting Room
(originally by Fugazi)

I am a patient boy
I wait, I wait, I wait, I wait
My life's like water down a drain
Everybody's moving
Everybody's moving
Everything is moving
Moving, moving, moving
Please don't leave me to remain
In my waiting room

I don't want the news
I got no use of it
I don't want the news
I am no part of it
Sitting outside of town
Everybody's always down
Tell me why
Because they can't get up

But I won't sit idly by
I plan a big surprise
I'm gonna fight
For what I want to be
And I won't make the same mistakes
'Cause I know
How much time that wastes
And function
Function is the key
from the waiting room

Sitting in the waiting room
Sitting in the waiting room
Sitting in the waiting room
Sitting in the waiting room
Tell me why
Because they can't get up
Track Name: Charted Trips
(originally by Husker Du)

I picked up my belongings
in a nylon carry-all
I hear the porter call
Said "The sky's the limit
on this chartered trip away,"
I guess I'd better stay
Out there on the desert,
I see trees on every wall
Nothing's ever solved
Said "The sky's the limit
on this chartered trip away,"
Guess I'd better stay away

I thought I owed myself a trip away
I wanted to go to places I have never been away
I looked at the pictures, imagine where they lay
On a beach by the sand, where their clothes all lay away

Horizon is oblivious, chartered trip away
Said "There's no returning from this chartered trip away."
Track Name: Unfinished
(inspired by Supergrass)

You'd better get yourself together
You're wasting to much time
Hate everyone but you're not better
You're acting like a child

You think that you've got all the answers
But you don't have a clue
You wait around while nothing happens
You don't know what to do
It's Alright

You walk alone in the rain and wind but
There's nothing you can find
You know that stupid attitude of yours,
It kills you from inside

And when you wake up in the morning
You hope that you would die
'Cause everything just doesn't seem fair
Nothing seems quite right
It's Alright
Track Name: Fountains
(originally by The Nils)

I can remember long time ago
When we were kids and said we didn't know
Diving head first into a fountain of youth
Didn't last long
That's the truth now
One day
You changed your mind
and only dream inside us most of the time
that all of my prayers, all of the promises
all of my pacts, all of my wishes won't last
Track Name: Someone Like You
Someone like you
I try to say sorry
someone like you
I pray and I worry
someone like you

Someone like you
I try to say sorry
someone like you
I pray and I worry
but I do
Track Name: A Change Is Gonna Come
(originally by Sam Cooke)

I was born by the river in this little old tent, now
And just like the river I've been running ever since
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

It's been too hard, the living
but I'm afraid to die
don't know what's up there beyond the sky
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will

There were times, I would go to my brother
I said "Brother, would you help me please".
He would turn be down, and then I'd ask my little mother
I' said "Mother, mother I'm down on my knees."

There were the times that I'd roam
Loneliness could last very long
But somehow I was to labor
And carry on
It's been a long, a long time coming
But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will
Track Name: Oyster Club
Oyster club is waiting
Oyster club is waiting
for you

Membership is growing
Everyone is going
Please come

Oyster club is waiting
Oyster club is waiting
Track Name: Green Eyes
(originally by Husker Du)

It's a great big world there's a million other guys
I feel so lucky when I look in those green eyes
What makes them sparkle, what makes them shine
What makes these eyes of yours
look into mine?

Green eyes

Is it the sun that makes them so green?
Those are the prettiest eyes
I have ever seen
What makes them sparkle, what makes them shine
What makes these eyes of yours
look into mine?
Track Name: Means Nothing
Like it or not
you're gonna be laughed at
Your stories your looks and your eyes

Like it or not
Your words will be altered
You won't get respect
Just despised
Means nothing
Track Name: Thirteen
(originally by Big Star)

Won't you let me walk you home from school
Won't you let me meet you at the pool
Maybe Friday I can
Get tickets for the dance
And I'll take you

Won't you tell your dad "Get off my back."
Tell him what we said 'bout "Paint It Black"
Rock and roll is here to stay
Come inside where it's okay
And I'll shake you

Won't you tell me what you're thinking of
Would you be an outlaw for my love
If it's so, well let me know
If it's no, well I can go
I won't make you
Track Name: My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean
(traditional)

My Bonnie lies over the ocean,
my Bonnie lies over the sea,
My Bonnie lies over the ocean,
please bring back my Bonnie to me.

Bring back
Bring back
Bring back my bonnie to me
Track Name: If Only You Were Lonely
(originally by The Replacements)

Well, I get outta work and I am tired as hell
Another day's come and gone and oh, well
Somewhere there's a drink
With my name on it

Well, I ordered a coke as I went bust through them doors
Spilled half on my jeans, the other half on the floor
When I saw you standing by
that video game

Well, I ain't very much
But I can practice by myself
Forgot my one line
So I just said what I felt

If only you was lonely
If only you was lonely too
If only you was lonely
I'd go home with you

Twenty pushups this morning, that was half my goal
Tonight I'm doin' pullups on the toilet bowl
And somewhere there's somebody throwin' up

Well, I broke the seal on my door and I poured myself to bed
The whirlpool spinning around in my head
Around in my head
There was liquor on my breath
you were on my mind

And I've been dreamin' bout that smile
Without a care in the world
If only you was lonely
If only you was lonely too
If only you was lonely

I work in the kitchen
I am tired as hell
Another day's here
And oh, well
Somewhere there's a smile
With my name on it
