Track Name: Expiry Date
One part speculation
A poorly executed plan
On their part not on my part
something tells me that I can
Cut it tight Cut it tight
Keep it out of sunlight
This could be the last
Never know when it stops
Or when it's the last shot
It could end so fast
No nice way to say it
and a rephrasing will not help
No strategy to play now
To conquer the hand you've been dealt
Cut it tight Cut it tight
Keep it out of sunlight
Starting to go bad
How do I thank you for ruining
The best time that I ever had?
Time ran out
Time ran out
Time ran out

Funny little pageboy
Bowl haircut helmet shine
Eventually changes
Into something far less kind
Cut it tight Cut it tight
Keep it out of sunlight
Starting to go bad
How do I thank you for ruining
The best time that I ever had?

Track Name: Life Ruiner II
Two penguins found each other
On a big chunk of ice
There were introductions
Things they felt very nice
Such a happy chunk of ice
It's in Canada
But then her heels happened
Wings they were a flapping
So humiliating
But she had a nice
beaker beaker beaker beak.
But he's not going to her tea party

It's not important that she likes what I like
What's important is that I don't hate what she likes

Now all of the ducks see
And they think he's lucky
They think he's a lucky duck
That penguin is a lucky lucky lucky duck

Victim of a Life Ruiner
Life Ruiner
Part II

It's not important that she likes what I like
What's important is that I don't hate what she likes
Track Name: Figure It Out
Scenarios may vary
And choices made are scary
Particularly when that choice has led you here
The perks are hard to deny
Though brief past tense and gone by
This conquest can not even live up to it's name

Inevitably
You will be put on the spot
They bring up topics
That you wish they would not
They ask the questions
And if you tell the truth
The downside to that
Is that they know the truth

If I haven't figured it out by now
Then I'm never gonna figure it out

I took a chance
And I blew it
And I took pleasure in it
And I'll do it again
And again
And again

The times it seems the clearest
at 6 am it's realest
The faintest hope is deadly cold
It's gone away
With optimism fading
Knowing that no one's waiting
To see what you come up with next
Interest is low

Inevitably
You will be put on the spot
They bring up topics
That you wish they would not
The little things that
You would rather forget
For all the effort
Look how little you get

If I haven't figured it out by now
Then I'm never gonna figure it out
Track Name: Opening Act
I see you from the stage
You're looking at me
And I've got a job to do tonight
I won't give up without a fight
I hope I pull it off all right
I don't pretend you're here to see me
But lucky me I'm on the bill
There was a little slot to fill
There was a little time to kill
Always a bridesmaid
Never a bride
Show me the coattails that I need to ride
In order to have
An audience to please
I hope you like me
I'm down on my knees
Opening Act
Opening Act
Dead by 45 of a heart attack
Opening Act
Opening Act
Suffer me tonight and I'll never be back
Never did I ever have any desire to headline
It's never ever ever been a dream
Of mine
A dream of mine

But now I'm here
I'm doing my best
We've got 10 minutes to go
Then it will be the end you know
The last time You will see our show
If you're a girl then I've noticed you
I realise that you don't care
Just nice to see you standing there
Please excuse me if I stare
We open for someone
Who you know and love
And now you're stuck with me
Thank God from above
I'll ask for your patience
As I do my bit
I haven't got what it takes to make it

My aspirations they have all been met
This is all I want I've got no regrets
If it all ends now if tonight we're done
Look at me now look how far I've come

Opening Act

Dead by 45 of a heart attack

Suffer me tonight and I'll never be back

Opening Act
I try and try again but you never react
Opening Act

Track Name: A Sequel
It's a sequel
Another pill
Bells are ringing
Girls are singing
Songs that they know
Songs they download
Stuff they're into
Not stuff I do

Here's a future anthem for a future that exists
Should things go certain ways
But it's not likely
It's nowhere near likely
This offer extended
This offer rejected

At this rate those girls won't be singing
No bells ringing
No nothing
Track Name: Life Ruiner III The Night She Slept Over
See what happens when you get what you want
Nothing Nothing Nothing Nothing
See what happens when you get what you want
Nothing good at all

Now your wish comes true
Now what are you supposed to do
Wish it never happened to you
Wish it never happened to you

She's here
She's here
Now she's away from me
She's here
She's here
Life Ruiner part III

The night she slept over
Now it's really over
Track Name: Accidental
It might look accidental
Maybe yes maybe not
All mistakes repeated
And I get what I want

Not as bad as it looks
Is it? Is it?
If only they knew
Is it? Is it?
Not gonna tell you

I don't need excuses
I know better than you
Has not always been like this
Do what I want to do

Not as bad as it looks
Is it? Is it?
If only they knew
Is it? Is it?
Not gonna tell you
Track Name: Death Bed
Why do they make it so hard? How do I do this?
I can't tell
He might have gone to heaven
But he left me here in hell

I was totally lost until he came to help me
He would make numbers dance for a reasonable fee
What will I do without him here to make it work
He asked for so little I would pay anything
He would ask a few questions and make numbers sing
Taxes are too hard for me do not understand
I need financial advice
How will I get through this life

His arms bore markings in ink faded blue
We would sit and discuss matters of my revenue
What will I do without him here to make it work
Last time we spoke I called him and he said that he was not feeling well
He was on his death bed

Taxes are too hard for me do not understand

My accountant died
They hooked him up to machines
It's been a problem ever since
Not for him but for me

He enjoyed himself to death
Went out doing what he loved
Now I can not file my taxes
Now I can't get my refund

I can't get my refund
My refund
Track Name: Monkeying Around
It's an infection
But you can't catch it
It can't be passed on
But when you have it
You'll wish you hadn't
I've had it all along
You can see what it does to me
It's doing it right now
I'm stuck with this
Stuck doing this
It's all I am allowed
And though there's not one thing to gain
I feel the need to entertain
I'd rather not but I do not have a choice
Never had a choice
I don't have a choice
Never had a choice
I know that I make it look easy
It's part of what I do
But this life of monkeying around is what I must get through
It would be so much more easy
If I did not have to come
Out here and make you laugh at me
And what I have become
And though nobody asked me to
I'm going to show you what I do
I'm sorry for this but I don't have a choice
Never had a choice
I don't have a choice
I'm trapped in this life
Not like I ever got rewards
And I don't want them anymore
Took me one thousand tries to see
There's something wrong with me
I am facing blackness
