Track Name: I Wish I Loved You (Cuz I Really Like You)
I wish I loved you cuz I really like you but I somehow doubt I'll care about you in a month or two
And if that seems callous, or like a fuckin cop out I can't say but I'm an asshole and incapable of love
Wish I could need you cuz I really want you but It's not fair of me to say some words I know I'll never mean
And I know that's callous and it might just be a cop out but it also has the distinction of being completely true... oh you....

Leave me, that's the only way I'll love you
that's the reason I'll think of you, if you stay
it shows poor taste
Fuck me, and then promptly fuck me over
it shouldn't take you long to pour yourself into
somebody new, somebody more like you

Still wish I loved you cuz i still really like you but I think you're waiting round here for this to be something more
and darlin'
God I wish it could be but you're right where you should be just as long as you're still walking out that always open door

Leave me, that's the only way I'll love you
that's the reason I'll think of you, if you stay
it shows poor taste
Fuck me, and then promptly fuck me over
it shouldn't take you long to pour yourself into somebody new
somebody more like you
Track Name: Cinco De Mayo
The sun is in Taurus the moon is in Virgo, the stars are aligned and what do you know? This is the age of the end, its the age of the end, and I'm looking forwards to it
Carpet bombing salesmen selling personal hells, while a computerized church is ringing digital bells, you're terrified of knowledge but you wanna know it all, how to make it to the top and how fast you can fall
And all the information you want's right in your ears, but nothing that you're learning's gettin rid of those fears, they've been the same since the beginning getting close to the end, and while all is falling down I"m looking for my best friend
She's in a house of horrors with a ghost for a dad, and her mom is a monster and i'ts making her sad
twenty-six and a quarter years spent on this rock and we're still circling over the same twenty blocks
and I'm watching the sun set from Grand Avenue and you'd better believe it's a hell of a view, with a primitive smile and a chemical hue, thinking it's been a while since we heard it from you
And on Cinco de Mayo the sun's coming out after two months of skies filled with nothing but clouds and there's caffeine and bupernorphine in my blood, i forgot who i am but i know who i was
when i wrote you a song to make up for the days when the holes that i filled were the ones in my veins
it's not much i know but it comes from the heart, that's about all i've got, save a couple of scars
but I"ve been trying to make it you know that it's hard in a city of sinners and brothels and bars, but i've gotta believe all the things that I say, pray the train that i'm on's gonna go all the way
i've been going too long to give up on it now, but i'm not any closer to figuring out why i think what you think even matters to me, it's a snowball in hell that you'll ever be
tossing me a life preserver from your boat, i was never blessed with the audacity of hope, but it ain't your life on my end of the line and the only life i can save will be mine
but i'll write down these words with a permanent pen and run around singing them so i can pretend like i'm giving the world some kind of help, when im really just out here to help myself

if there's a god above me and he's on my side, then i'm waiting for my dreams and the truth to collide..... but if i'm all there is, this is it, i can quit... as a matter of fact i'm looking forwards to it....
