You made me think that I hated you That's not what I ever wanted to do You're living with your back against the wall Project your feelings right onto me Making me the enemy You know how to make me feel so small Victim mode: it got you where you needed to go 'You against the world' is everything you know You ruined me, you ruined you Is that really what you meant to do? "The customer is always right" Even if you picked the fight You're living with your back against the wall Psycho-babble makes you seem so right It's all a part of this big gaslight I feel like shit when it's you who's wrong Victim mode: it got you where you needed to go 'You against the world' is everything you know You ruined me, you ruined you Is that really what you meant to do?

I want a piece, a piece of your love baby I want a piece, oh maybe just oh maybe I don't know if you think that might be crazy I do know your love makes me feel okay-z A little slice would be quite nice, oh baby A little bite for my appetite, oh maybe A bite I need to make me think of my lady A little piece of your love, oh my baby You gave me the bite, the little bite, oh lady And after that I did not feel okay-z You'd given your love to them all, you say-z I was too late, I got it last, oh baby I was too late, I got it last, my baby I was too late, I got it last, by lady

The days that you go in you won't go in but you gotta go in. Over again, cuz you gotta go in. So don't go in.

Going down to break the law Breaking stuff, that's not all Doing what he told you to do Taking pictures the whole way through You the man The orange man Blood's on your hands This cannot stand A selfish man's injured pride A Stop The Steal horse we will ride You tell us that it was stolen from you You feed the flames of the nazi Q You the man The orange man Blood's on your hands This cannot stand

Hello my friend Now I see you, Here we are again I hope you are listenin I need to speak with you again I followed you in And I tried, but just then I found myself alone again So why do I pretend? This isn't what it means to be friends You didn't ever really even listen It's all about you again. All about you again. Tell me why did I ever go in? And now this will end I did all the work You put nothing in I hope you are listening, Cuz this is not "friends" It seems no longer that you are my friend You didn't ever really even listen It's all about you again, it's always about you again Tell me why did I even go end? And now this will end I did all the work You put nothing in I hope you are listening, Cuz this is not "friends" This is not "friends" It's not how you do "friends"

I don't like "maybes" I don't like "sometimes" It's never "always" So I'll just wait in line today In the beginning, there was just heaven Until you showed up and You called me Kevin today When you know that something is going to end up runnin It's time to get your funk in, cuz you might not have it today Inside the oven, you cooked up somethin You fed me dinner, it messed up my innards today I suffered mostly cuz I laid down my cards You kept on playing, not here I lie in shards today. When you know that something is going to end up runnin It's time to get your funk in, cuz you might not have it today Bring it down, motherfuckers Bring it back, motherfuckers When you know that something is going to end up runnin It's time to get your funk in, cuz you might not have it today

I'm coming out of nowhere The slowest time bomb you've ever heard I'm setting off implosions I'm making "normalcy" not a word There's a chair in the corner of the room It's gonna be yours for quite a while What the hell is wrong with you? Mr. Doom & Gloom. Turn that frown into a goddamn smile Go out to your porch and cut your hair You can try to cut me out of there But you'll just find it's only despair You can try to "settle in" You're really taking one for the team No boat, no lights, no motorcars They call this The American Fucking Dream You'll never be alone again At the same time, you're all alone You don't even know what day it is You feel like a dog without a bone Go out to your porch and cut your hair You can try to cut me out of there But you'll just find it's only despair

You can't blame people who don't drive cars Cuz they get to walk down the street You can't blame people who don't smoke dope Cuz smokin' that stuff ain't neat Whooaaa x2 You can't blame people who don't eat meat Cuz killing cows is no game You can't blame people who don't masturbate Cuz doing that is really lame Whooaaa x2 Well I drive a car and I smoke dope I eat cows and I masturbate I hope there's more people out there like me Cuz I am the one that people hate Whooaaa x4

Bend your hot dog in a circle Put your finger in the middle You can wear it like a ring now Let the animals come and lick it

I'm making you a song About some things I eat It's not too complicated It has a simple beat It starts like this In a major key But by the very end We'll both be so hungry (for) Burgers & Fries A glass of Coke, and apple pie I love the taste of a big fat burger Cold chillin' in my stomach, I think I'll have another Cheese dripping off the sides, Grease dripping on my plate Cows are my friends, I do think they taste great Burgers & Fries A glass of Coke, and apple pie White Castles, Burger King Wendy's and Hardee's are my favorite things I'm taking you out to the Twig and Leaf where you'll dine well on meat and grease Burgers & Fries A glass of Coke, and apple pie
