Track Name: Sixteen
Are you thinking about me?
Are you talking about me,
To your mom, and your dad
and to all your friends in class?

Are you thinking about me?
Are you thinking about me,
On the bus, in the car
Am I everywhere you are?

Are you thinking about me?

Are you thinking about me?
Do you whisper silently,
Out my name, to your book?
Am I everywhere you look?

Are you thinking about me?

I wanna see my name carved into a tree
I want you to display your love publicly
I want everyone to know, to know, to know

You don't know what it's like being me
The whole world says "You're ugly, you're ugly, you're ugly"
Baby, you're ugly, you're ugly, you're ugly.
Track Name: Bad Kids
To save my soul
We'll have to compromise
Evil takes hold
Couldn't kick if I tried

What makes a good kid bad?
Is it mom or is it dad?
Or the bands she listens to
Late at night up in her room

Doctor, if you think you know
What has taken hold
Of her heart, of her head
Why she can't get out of bed

Don't know if I'll make it through
Small town Ontario
Nothing to do
If there's a party, let me know

Walk hand in hand
I feel like a little kid
Maybe you'll teach me something
My teachers never did

Doctor, if you think you know
What has taken hold
Of my heart, of my head
Why I can't get out of bed

I got caught skipping school
Bad kids do what they want to

Oh, and if I wasn't going home
You know I'd be coming over
I got stuff I need to go
Otherwise I'd be with you
Track Name: Cock Rock
All of your symptoms
Are pointing in on direction
All of this sleeping in
Do you think it might be depression

Or are you bummed out,
Cause being a girl is kind of shitty?
Are you pissed off
At your boring, conservative city?

All of you reasoning
Is leaving my head feeling heavy
Girls don't know how to rock
They're only good for going steady

So are you bummed out,
Cause being a girl is kind of shitty?
Are you pissed off
At your boring, conservative city?

Where all the boys
Run around with their guitars
And everyone
Looks at them like fucking stars
Track Name: Conditions
I made the run away
With two eyes shut and a knife
My brittle bones will break
Break under the weight of this night

My secret slumber waits
My well planned, dreamed escape

And when sleep comes
My body tired, will lie down wilingly
And when dreams come
Guilty freedom, washes over me

We're all alone
Hiding under covers in the dark
With palms outstretched
Waiting to receive what they're worth

I can hold my own
White at the knuckles
White at the knucles

And when sleep comes
My body tired, will lie down wilingly
And when dreams come
Guilty freedom, washes over me
Track Name: He Had It Coming
You punched a girl, said she had it coming
And now everyone thinks you're a scum-bag
And you know you are
You know you are

But everything blows over if you wait long enough
You can do whatever if she doesn't make a fuss
And you know you are
You know you are

One day they'll say he had it coming and be right
And, maybe he shouldn't have stayed out all night
Watching movie stars beat up on their wives
Don't we know the difference between that and real life

What was she wearing it's on everybody's mind
"I think she's a tramp, and she's wasting time
Who do you think you are, who do you think you are?"

But everything blows over if you wait long enough
You can fuck who ever if she doesn't make a fuss
And you know you are, you know you are

One day they'll say he had it coming and be right
And, maybe he shouldn't have stayed out all night
Watching movie stars beat up on their wives
Don't we know the difference between that and real life

Oh, what a joke
What a well laid plan
You didn't mean it, you didn't know
Yeah, you're just man
And we can't expect if we want dress like that
To be left alone
Track Name: Speak Slow
Speak slow, let every word
Gently form and flow
You don't need to waste your breath
Telling me what I already know

You could let me down easy
And let me down fast
Let me down holy
And make me feel blessed
For the privilege

Deliver, don't run around
Don't lay your pity on thick
It's not the first time something came to nothing
And it hurts, but I'm used to it

So let me down easy
And let me down fast
Let me down holy
And make me feel blessed
For the privilege

You won't get too far
If you're afraid
Yeah it's worse if you wait
Track Name: Set You On Fire
You took it for granted
And I always came, crawling back to you
But you didn't know, that I could grow
Into someone who could hurt you

I"ll set you on fire

You took me for a walk
Around the block, of tough love
Lesson learned I guess
But you never though, that you could fall
For me just like I fell for you

I'll set you on fire
I'll set you on fire

Oh, and now you see
When you're falling
Faster than you want to
On your downward move
You got nothing to prove
But everything to lose

You took me for granted
And I always came, I always came crawling back to you
And now you feel the same
You're calling me every day
Well, I don't need you

I'll set you on fire
I'll set you on fire

Oh, and now you see
When you're falling
Faster than you want to
On your downward move
You got nothing to prove
But everything to lose
