I don't mind if you move alot, a home is not just made I don't care if you stop the song where other bands normally fade I don't mind if you love someone just because they love you too And I don't care if you leave them just because you want something new I don't care if I grow old and wrinkle from head to toe I don't care if I don't wake up tomorrow, how would I ever know? That's why all of my family hates me All of my fans underrate me All of my doctors sedate me All of my girlfriends irritate me All of my habits are detrimental All of my music is experimental All my drug use is accidental I don't mind if you grow up wrong, it's better that you know the truth I don't care if you grow up right and you discover the fountain of youth I don't care if a tree falls down in the forest with no one around Unless the waves hit someones ear, it never turns into sound I don't care if you pray every night, there are covenants to renew I don't care if you hate God, because he probably hates you too That's why all of my family hates me All of my fans underrate me All of my doctors sedate me All of my girlfriends irritate me All of my habits are detrimental All of my music is experimental All my drug use is accidental

You look outside, it looks like nothings there Things are going on but you're unaware Those trees don't grow in this climate, so you'll never ever climb it Don't you miss the canyon down below? When the trees block the reception on your phone? Plant a seed and fertilize it, looked for your house but I couldn't find it Everybody's got the same doorways They each come with sixteen windowpanes You can liquidate your assets You can change your name and address All your spanish roofs look just the same When you're flying right over the state And you'll never take the top down unless you're blaring music downtown You've all got the same black bottomed pools You never get hot, you're all so cool When you hang a towel to dry it, you let the privacy fence hide it Everybody's got the same doorways They each come with sixteen windowpanes You can liquidate your assets You can change your name and address Everybody's got the same doorways They each come with sixteen windowpanes You can liquidate your assets You can change your name and address Why don't you change your name and address? You'll never change your name and address

I tried to die young which made me prematurely old I made sure to overindulge in sex and drugs and rock and roll But the sex produced a child, the drugs only worked for a little while And rock and roll got boring on the night the audience stayed at home I tried to die young which made up which made up ten miles of bad road Which leads to a nice place to visit if you don't run into anyone you know Because we all know how people talk, you southern belles just can't refrain from flapping your jaws The rumors still abound about the nights when I was trying to die young But I've only now realized that there's nothing wrong with stacking up the years and getting on It's as if we say survivors don't belong There's nothing worse than carrying on when there's nothing left to carry at all I tried to die young, I couldn't live past twenty-seven I couldn't leave a good lookin' corpse just yet I hadn't left enough behind to live on My next work will always be my best The next record will always be my last Hell, this could be the last time any of you ever see me alive But I've only now realized that there's nothing wrong with stacking up the years and getting on It's as if we say survivors don't belong There's nothing worse than carrying on when there's nothing left to carry at all

I sold what I owned Came home in a storm Found out an old friend died in decal form I take what I want from a store and I walk out I may not think it's right but I'm not devout I have my doubts You need what they ask you to need You want what they sell I gave up on the Music Maker the minute they sold to Mattel I can't spend the money I make on things that don't exist I won't read your articles If conditions persist, I will resist We were born vintage but came out analog We may not be right but we're not wrong You're not right and we're not wrong Give me your tired, give me your poor And I'll give you Bee Thousand on cassette from '94 What's the point of being punk if punk means I belong? I don't think their music's bad, I just think they're doing it wrong It's only a song We were born vintage but came out analog We may not be right but we're not wrong You're not right and we're not wrong We were born vintage but came out analog You're not right and we're not wrong

I've asked for your number but please let me explain I'm not looking todate you, I don't think of you that way Sure, you've got nice looks and a clear teenage complexion But I'm just calling you because of your record collection Jessica, I heard you like The Who I do too Jessica, here's what I wanna do I wanna trade tapes with you And sure, you're nice to look at, a regular teenage queen But I don't wanna get in your pants, just inside your tape machine Jessica, I heard you like The Who I do too Jessica, here's what I wanna do I wanna trade tapes with you I'm not asking for a date, I've just heard that you've got stellar taste I'm not asking to be your mate, I want a high speed dub of your bootleg tapes You've got the complete Live At Leeds and Sebadoh's import CD's I don't care much about the birds and bees or getting to know you biblically You say you like the Violent Femmes, I like Jonathan Richman The Modern Lovers were his first band, but you say you've never heard of them Which means that you have never heard their classic debut Oh Jessica, i'll copy it for you I wanna trade tapes with you

Where I come from, there are no lights when the sun goes down Light up a fire and watch the embers fall to the ground Where I once lived all the crossroads intersect Everybody waits their turn, they've all got kids to protect A glass of water, a smoke free room Up early at morning, at your door at noon A pen and paper, a first edition Four dollars a day, I hope they call me on a mission You never loved me, I found that out a lone You could have told me, could have saved me from going home But home is gone now, it's a valley with no sun The mountains shadow everything and everyone A glass of water, a smoke free room Up early at morning, at your door at noon A pen and paper, a first edition Four dollars a day, I hope they call me on a mission A glass of water, a smoke free room Up early at morning, at your door at noon A pen and paper, a first edition Four dollars a day, I hope they call me on a mission

Oh lord how I've tried to live for the truth Though I've rarely strayed, I have strayed from you I've done bad things and I've been depressed But I'm not coming home because I never left So I sing this praise to a higher unknown And ask that you love me as you'd love a son I've done bad things with what I've been blessed I'm not coming home because I never left Show mercy on me when I am worn down And I'll bathe the feet of those who surround Please grant me sleep or some kind of rest When I'm worn down... I've shown my disdain for your mistreated words I've turned a deaf ear, but with the other I've heard Though I've done things that are best left unsaid I'm not coming home because I never left

She drew a picture of you with wings, but you drew lines in the sand She drew herself as a newborn wrapping her fingers around your hand Maybe the wings were really arms, art is only what you make of it Because she also gave herself bunny ears when she drew herselfin a crib She drew a picture of a house, one I presume she's never seen She wrote the importance of flowers, because you can have them for free I guess that she kept me from jumping the gun, love is only what you make of it She drew a picture of a family practice while she drew herself in a crib She drew a picture of a flaming car, she drew up papers for her class ring I was an expensive mistake, taper it off and let the healing begin Maybe the wings were really checks, debt is only what you make of it I went and picked her flowers while she drew herself in a crib

This phone bill is a lesson I should learn But paying for the damage is modus operandi It's the grandest scheme for keeping people localized I'd hold your hand if you weren't in Boston tonight I would help intwine each seperate finger Into sensitive parts of the back of my skull The only thing you can't have is my forehead That's where the doctor likes to go I'm the coldest satellite in the farthest corners Of a solar system full of ordinary people Just like you What you are like doesn't really matter It's how influences get applied to your life I guess you don't like me much now that you know all my secrets I can't blame you for never asking why It can't be cut and dried like it's from the butcher But someone always gets drained just the same I thought if I'd hide it all you'd lik eme better The way you'd treat a girl you'll never see again I'm the coldest satellite in the farthest corners Of a solar system full of ordinary people Just like you Who would want a housepet for a housewife? Traing should be left back in home ec If you need me I'll be in the closet waiting To serve you and serve your closest friends I wouldn't raise a stink, I'd bring you paper and ink So you can write about how flawed I really am I'd bring you a drink when you couldn't get to sleep And watch you from a pillow on the floor I'm the coldest satellite in the farthest corners Of a solar system full of ordinary people Just like you

My house is a place where clothes are optional I'm horizontal when you think I'm upright I'm living in a habitat where pixels understand That I'm only a man in broad daylight Shield your casino eyes from what I claim as mine What you don't know is never gonna hurt you When I say good night, that's when I feel alive What you don't know is never gonna hurt you We went out to Walker Road, a tent that we could use to vote On someone everybody can agree on Someone that can use their head, housewives don't need opinions A modern day door knocking politician Shield your casino eyes from what I claim as mine What you don't know is never gonna hurt you When I say good night, that's when I feel alive What you don't know is never gonna hurt you The bus can be collateral for things that I don't have Everyone I need is in the backseat Trailer parks and CB names, a sex that never stays the same The outer shell that's never seen a JPG Shield your casino eyes from what I claim as mine What you don't know is never gonna hurt you It's my stereotype that keeps me up at night What you don't know is never gonna hurt you
