Track Name: Audio Karate - Senior Year
Well it's friday night at the football game,
the crowd is cheering one more time for me,
and everything is going fine so far
but life is just ten yards away
a football play that goes on three but when you don't know me
and you don't see me
the ball springs loose you're alone and scrambling
once again you're looking for that open man
today i'm right beside you screaming you can do this
no one seems to understand i'm not afraid to take a stand
and when you don't know me it makes no difference what you say you are wrong
and maybe you don't wanna say will i just get sacked
someday i do this all because of you yeah tired
and bleeding it's tough i will go on it makes me wanna sing this song
and maybe you don't wanna say dreams come true don't they?
Track Name: Audio Karate - Betrayed
How could you take my girl away?
When i told you everyday but you took her anyway
From me
I stand alone heartbroken
Not one word is ever spoken
And there's nothing left to say to you
And everywhere i go
You're stuck inside my head
Why can't i get you out?
I guess i can't let go
The memories i have are burning out again
And i would never walk away
Forever I would stay
But you took her anyway from me
How come you messed with my girl
You betrayed the trust that I had with you
And i would never do the same to you
I could never see the truth
From underneath is hidden in his lies
I could never see the truth
From underneath he's taking her from me
There was always something in the way you looked at me
All I've got are memories
I find them hard to keep
I love the way it used to be
How can you take from me
Crossed in two i stand alone
Betrayed
Because of you
Because of you
Track Name: Ozma - The Business of Getting Down
when I woke up this mornin',
I knew what i had to find,
somewhere there exists a melody
that'll make you change your mind,

so I got down to business,
the best that I could do,
still nothing from these lonely
foreign lips could be good enough for you,

if you wanna run,
put the pedal to the metal,
tell me that we're done,
whistling like a kettle,
know you think you've won,
but we've still gotta score to settle,
so step on the pedal that means metal

if we had just one minute alone,
I know what i would say
Track Name: Ozma - The Ups and Downs
I've been cheating on you ever since we broke up
I've been dreaming about you ever since I woke up
Now my feeling's disappearing ever since you spoke up
So I'll devise a plot to break your heart
Think up a plan that I'll never carry out
What's wrong with you?
Tell me now
What should i do?

CHORUS
Don't let me down
I couldn't take much more of your love
Don't let me down
I couldn't take much more of you love

So i asked you to the show but i knew you'd never show up
Came to my birthday party just to tell me i should grow up
And then i see another girl and i think I'm gonna throw up!
So I'll devise a plan to make you mad
Dirty tricks to come back and take command
I'll win your hand
We'll hijack a plane and we're never gonna land

CHORUS

Don't let me down
I couldn't take much more of your love
Don't call me up
I'm so sick and tired of being down
Don't let me down
I'm so sick and tired of hanging up
Don't call me up
I couldn't take much more of your love
Track Name: Tsunami Bomb - Roundabout
1 A.M., the club is closing down. it's been a long day
We're on a great big road trip from coast to coast
The map is in our hands, wave goodbye and off we go
Free from normal life
This adventure is our history, we're out here on our own
Whoa, here we go
We'll never get there, we'll never get there
If we didn't, who would care?
6 A.M., the sky is turning light. Wish I could go home
LA to Salt Lake in one long night
The sun is coming up but my body feels cold inside
What am I doing?
This adventure is our history, we're out here on our own
Then there are times when
I feel so alone and no one knows who I am
Then there are times when
Gabe and Mike and Dom are there to be friends
Then there are times when
The kids we meet mean more to us
Than we ever thought they could
Driving all day, driving all night
Mike bought some coffee, Dom got in a fight
Sleeping on the floor, driving through the snow
Sweaty, smoky venues at every single show
El Diablo is our home
Still one question: where did Gabe go?
Track Name: Tsunami Bomb - No One's Looking
No sense trying to impress faces emotionless
Contact with others is unheard of
When you bump into me there's no apology
What is it that you're so afraid of?
You're staring straight through me
When will we gain back the trust we've been breaking
How can we stop all the clocks we've been racing
Thought that we had grown, now we're all alone
Seems that time isn't all that we're wasting
What are you gonna do if I try to talk to you
Walking away won't solve your problem
Can't you be a human being and show common courtesy
A cold shoulder isn't what I'm here for
Does anybody care?
Track Name: The Vandals - My First Christmas (as a Woman)
With Christmas upon us it's time to be honest
and follow my dreams and to face
a life of delusion and gender confusion
no longer will be the case

I never wanted army men or basketballs,
I only wanted pantyhose and Barbie dolls
And dressing up in mother's clothing.

My whole life I've been feeling only feminine
It always seemed so useless trying to be a man
Now that's a ghost of Christmas past

Now it feels like the very first time,
'cause it's going to be the very first time,
that Christmas feels right to me.

And I know that I'm looking good
Just like a real girl should-
It's my first Christmas as a woman

A doctor reconstructed my genitals
And now I'm waiting underneath the mistletoe
for a guy who could love a girl like me.

I took the hormones and I got my breasts
This season's gonna be the best to me.

I won't have to tuck it behind me
Since I got my brand new vagina
It's my first Christmas as a woman.

Chop if off! Chop if off! Chop if off!
My penis, chop it off
It's no use to me.
Cut it off!
Chop it off! Chop it off!
My penis, cut it off so I can finally be
A Woman...

Now I'm finally happy 'cause I made my goal
to be a post operation transsexual.
now I'm a pretty lady

Now it feels like the very first time,
'cause it's going to be the very first time,
that Christmas feels right to me.

'cause I know that I'm looking good
Just like a real girl should-
It's my first Christmas as a woman
Track Name: Antifreeze - Birthday Weekend
Don't leave me, not like this
I've longed for you since our first kiss
There was a time when I thought
You'd care for me no matter what

Why did you give up? I'll never know
I know it was hard. All we had was the phone
Although we had pain, I can tell you it's
better than being alone

I thought you wanted this
I hope so because you broke my heart for this

I curse my thoughts,they favor you
So does my heart. I curse that too.
With all it's pain and all it's cost
Who says it's best to have loved and lost?

And this is my heartfelt goodbye,
You hello hell.
Although you may forget, you'll be with me till death.
Because no matter what comes good or bad,
You never stop loving someone.

Don't think you've ruined me.
I am stronger for this.
But I'll still think of you
After you forget I exist.
Although I'll try to forget to save pain,
You'll always be inside my head.
Track Name: Antifreeze - Bankruptcy
I've never been so poor.
I bought something I can't afford
Most people can relate with a new car
but this is more value by far.

It's not a material thing,
it's not something i can easily explain.
It's about her i could never forget
wondering daily how she got me in debt.

Will I ever be the one
and if I was, would I be her last?

What a price I paid, fall in love with you.
What a price I paid, fall in love with you.
What a price I paid, fall in love with you.

My credit is shot,
but no worries, I've got what I want.
I know that i don't deserve you,
but it's better than being apart.

Maybe someday,
I'll change my ways.
The only thing that separates me from the rest,
are all of the lies I have told.

Will I ever be the one
and if I was, would I be her last?

What a price I paid, fall in love with you.
What a price I paid, fall in love with you.
What a price I paid, fall in love with you.

I've never been so poor,
I bought something I can't afford.
Most people can relate with the problems,
but I've got more problems by far.

Will I ever be the one
and if I was, would I be her last?

What a price I paid, fall in love with you.
What a price I paid, fall in love with you.
What a price I paid, fall in love with you.

What a price I paid.
What a price I paid.
Track Name: Useless I.D - Jukebox 86
Take me to a place where only happiness is all around
1986 is where we'd go
Sit out side with all my best friends fighting over baseball cards
A thought of nothing to worry about

Come around the block and check the club house no one's home
I'll make sure you enjoy your stay anyway
So how are you? Doing fine, well, things have been worse by the year
Mom and dad broke up and we all grew up but I stayed the same kid

Jukebox full of memories, I lost when they were packed away
Lucky to have found them in my mind
What happened to the excitement we once had that disappeared?
Something I am destined yet to find

Come around the block and check the club house no one's home
I'll make sure you enjoy your stay anyway
So how are you? Doing fine, well, things have been worse by the year
Mom and dad broke up and we all grew up but I stayed the same kid

Themes from old TV shows
Broken radio
Every time I hear them
It takes me back home
It takes me away
Track Name: Useless I.D - No Time For Me to be a Teenager
Yesterday I Called You Up
Instead Of A Date I Got Turned Down
It's Been A While And Nothing New
A Hard Time Searching For That True And Never Ending Love
It's Time I Gave It Up

No Time For Me To Be A Teenager
These Games Are Not Worth Going Back There For
I'm Out Of Broken Hearts To Give To You
I Guess I'll Save Them All For Someone New

Opportunity Exists
You're Taking Advantage Of The Risk
This Next Journey Starts Alone
Till I Get Her I'll Be Gone And Away
You Won't Hear From Me

No Time For Me To Be A Teenager
These Games Are Not Worth Going Back There For
I'm Out Of Broken Hearts To Give To You
I Guess I'll Save Them All For Someone New

No Time For Me To Be A Teen
No Time For Me To Be A Teenager
Track Name: Mi6 - Jeff Brown
I don't know why
I never did anything to you
And i know, i can't comply
To the way that you think that i should play my songs
Never bother'd to take the time to watch me
You just criticized with every line
You said so many bad things about me
I think you'r just musically uninclined
And your still spreading it around,
And you keep writing it all down

And i'll find you, with your review
And i'll make you apologize to me
Just say you're sorry, for your story
I don't think that it was very fair of you
You Jeff brown'd me

You said my songs are not all that complicated
The chorus's, just seem to be phrases
Shouted out, twenty times in a row
What'a you know
I don't expect you to understand my feelings
Cause your accusing me of stealing
Power chords from a screeching weasel song
You know they'd never let me play that long
You Jeff brown'd me too [repeat]
Track Name: No Use For a Name - Not Your Savior (Live)
Unlucky seventeen, already handed plans for the future
Glamour obsessed, told how to dress, and shown how to think
And I don't have a job, but I can show you how to be a slob
So many days, wasted and glazed
Sometimes I laugh aloud as I think about,
You asking me "Please can you help?"
Can't help my self

I'm not your savior, I'm not who you want me to be
A cowardly mistake I've made so many times before, refusing to break
Cut my losses ties them with you, like a good boy I'll pretend
And promise not to do it again

Do you remember when, life was so simple and permanent?
Everyone's changed, "Everyone's cool", Everyone sucks
But I can't seem to complain, Exciting and new is just not there
You're getting scared

I'm not your savior, never thought I was anyway
I'm a void with empty promises that backs out late
Never said I'd change, taking back the words that we spoke
Like a fuel tank running dry, you'll believe it when I choke
Track Name: The Ataris - Make it Last
There's a lot on my mind
So I guess that I'll take it one thing at a time,
Still sometimes I can't help but wonder why...
I sit around all day
And I waste my whole damn life away,
Still thinkin' bout' just what there is to say.
(chorus #1) should I say goodnight?
...got to bed, turn out the fucking light
And leave you shining in the past.
Should I try and forget? ?
...even though next week it's something I'll regret.
Or, should I try and make it last?
I think about the day
When I felt you'd throw it all away
To try to make me feel like I'm the one.
You were my best friend,
And I never ever thought those days would end
But now it seems like they are gone
(chorus #2) what more can I say?
...i never wanted it to be this way,
And where the hell is yesterday?
...we sure had a blast!
I'm sorry that we're living in the past,
Should we try and make it last?
(repeat chorus #1)
Track Name: The Ataris - Are We There Yet (Live)
I think that we're lost again
And this looks like the shitty side of town
We're running out of gas
And the sun is going

Down, down, down
Time to turn around
And start heading back
In the right direction now,

But my map is upside down.
I just want to make it to the show,
But I don't think that we're gonna go,
I can see the headline now

"Four punks are dead again
We know you don't care, but, film at ten.
And, now on to sports."
Things are looking bleak,

Everybody thinks that I'm a geek.
We're hiding all our cash,
My fingernails are digging in the dash.
"Why didn't you ask for directions?

What Cracker Jack box did you find your
License in?
You stupid piece of shit
I'll never ride with you again!"

I just want to make it to the show,
But I don't think that we're gonna go.
"Just pull over and let me drive!"
Everybody wants me dead.

I think the club is up ahead.
It feels good to be alive!
