Jeremy Withers If Tom Petty grew up listening to Joy Division and drinking shitty beer by the railroad tracks behind the high school, he might write damaged postpunk pop songs as good as these. Maybe.

Track Name: Mormon Recovery Program
Crossed the bridge to kill a six pack in the cold.
Dark and wet - sweet heart, better come close.
Bright green eyes shone as the flames rose up.
You can't go home again, darling.
Track Name: Fuck Peter Hook
Well we all know your history.
Yeah, we all know what you've been through.
Yeah, we all got dead friends too.
But the difference is we don't try to make money off of them.

Well your younger self called not knowing what to do.
He was crying his eyes out, so disappointed in you.
Said he's killing himself, doesn't know what to do.
Said he's killing himself before he turns into you.
Track Name: Fat Anime Kid
Was a fat anime kid,
cold shivering naked.
Was a scared little brat,
can't believe I used to be that.
But in time I would see
who I was going to be.
I 'm still him in my head,
but in truth I wish that he was dead.

Anything you are,
Anything I can be
Anything you want
Anything I could be

Anything I could be
Anything I could be

Was a fat anime kid,
crying over nothing.
I never wish to go back.
Getting old isn 't so bad.
Was a fat anime kid,
crying over nothing.
Was a fat anime kid,
crying over nothing.

Anything you are,
Anything I could be
Anything you want
Anything I could be

Anything I could be
Anything I could be
Anything I could be
Anything I could be
Track Name: Marked
I want to leave marks on you,
you've left these on me.
Dig my teeth into your skin,
make the whole world see

oh, you can pull...

You can pull harder if you want.
You can scratch deeper.
I don't feel guilty anymore

I've been marked.
I've been marked.
I've been marked.
I've been marked.

I'll be patient and strong,
when you're around.
Otherwise, I twist and scream
trying to unearth the ground.

I'm so sick of...

Sick of feeling like this,
Gonna make you regret.
Sick of feeling like this,
I'm not gonna be your pet anymore

I've been marked.
I've been marked.
I've been marked.
I've been marked.

I want to hurt you, really hurt you.
I don't mean bruises or black eyes.

We were spinning, round and round.
We were spinning, round and round.
We were spinning, round and round.
We were spinning, round and round.
Track Name: Every Game Becomes a Drinking Game (When You're Around)
We made a mistake, and we'll make it again.
When he finds out, we'll be dead.
He gave you some rope, now it's time to swing.
Soon we'll hear all the demons sing
You've got me, I won't debate it.
I'm so easily manipulated.

You're so sweet, then again you're not.
I dig you, now they dig for us.
Hey young lady, we're not in the right.
I don't think you should come over tonight.

Every game becomes a drinking game
when you're around, I don't feel the same.
I'm so conflicted, so confused.
Is that information that you can use?
Stay a while, and then we'll know,
then we'll know we have no self-control.


You're so sweet, then again you're not.
I dig you, now they dig for us.
Hey young lady, we're not in the right.
I still think you should come over tonight

You've got me, I won't debate it.
I'm so easily manipulated.
Do I have you, I don't know it.
I won't leave with out something to show for it.
Hey young lady, we're not in the right.
I still think you should come over tonight.
Track Name: A Song Your Daddy Would Like
I wrote a song your daddy would like,
it's short and to the point.
It's not about The Old Time Rock and Roll
it's not about his Honky Tonk Joint.
He's gotta know about his little girl,
his princess and these guys.
You know that I will tell him the truth,
you know I'm so bad with lies.

I will wipe you off the counter,
mop you off the bathroom floor.
I will drive you up the driveway,
I'll be gone when he opens the door.

I cut a new demo for your dad,
I just hope that he understands.
I'm bitter, I'm jaded and I'm confused.
I feel older than your old man.
I'm feeling jittery and so nervous,
can you tell me what to do?
I had a heart-to-heart with myself,
and the only issue is YOU.


I will wipe you off the counter,
mop you off the bathroom floor.
I will drive you up the driveway,
I'll be gone when he opens the door.


I will wipe you off the counter,
mop you off the bathroom floor.
I will drive you up the driveway,
I'll be gone when he opens the door.

I will wipe you off the counter,
mop you off the bathroom floor.
I will drive you up the driveway,
I'll be gone when he opens the door.
Track Name: Halloween III
Everything is red and green.
God I miss Halloween.
Blood is smeared all over my face.
Shining faces, shining lights,
reflecting in my knife.
Give me someone new to taste.

Everything is red and green - God I miss Halloween

Tricks and treats for everyone
Praying of the death of the sun.
Laughter breaks the autumn air.
Now it's all in the past,
Good times never last.
Now I know that you're there.

Everything is red and green - God I miss Halloween

Orange is beautiful.
Black is in my heart.
Red staining my hands.
Halloween is back again.


Everything is red and green - God I miss Halloween

Tricks and treats for everyone
Praying of the death of the sun.
Laughter breaks the autumn air.
Now it's all in the past,
Good times never last.
Now I know that you're there.

Everything is red and green - God I miss Halloween

Orange is beautiful.
Black is in my heart.
Red staining my hands.
Halloween is back again.
Track Name: One of Them
Keeping in the lines,
Trying to catch your breath.
Running with the rest.
Feel it in your spine
deep within your chest.
No one's listening.

Well I don't mind the scenery today.
But counting dead won't make it get away.

You're one of them.

I was not so strong -
couldn't find the breath
for this dying chest.
Running from the throng,
hiding in the leaves,
hunted in the trees.



Well I don't mind the scenery today.
But counting dead won't make it get away.

You're one of them.


Well I don't mind the scenery today.
But counting dead won't make it get away.
I don't mind the scenery today.
But counting dead won't make it get away.

You're one of them.
You're one of them.
You're one of them.

You're one of them.
Track Name: The Black Hand
Acting reckless, thinking that you are safe,
you're not invincible, you're bound to break.
Baby take caution, its the only way,
Because the thing cloaked will come some day.

I see The Black Hand coming for you.
I know, someday, it will come for me too.

Panic attack thinking of those thoughts,
Choke on my words and my heart stops.
Nothing can put my mind at ease.
I don't want to leave, baby, pretty please.


I see The Black Hand coming for you.
I know, someday, it will come for me too.
I see The Black Hand coming for you.
I know, someday, it will come for me too.
