I'm Going To The Discount Store Yes I'm Going To The Discount Store Can't Afford What I Used To Afford And I Hardly Even Noticed I'm Going To The Discount Store Yes I'm Going To The Discount Store Can't Afford What I Used To Afford And I Hardly Even Noticed Knowing that the world's an awful great big place And I am Awful Small It really shouldn't come as much of a surprise to find I Don't Really Matter At All Mom and Dad don't let me waste your time Mom and Dad don't let me waste your time I know you've gotta be at work at nine To Put Food Upon The Platter Mom and Dad don't let me waste your time Mom and Dad don't let me waste your time I know you've gotta be at work at nine As if it really mattered Mattered Mattered that the clock needs punchin' The man is watchin' And the union's gone for good With all this freedom how comes there's no fun Left in the neighborhood A&R Woman has central air A&R Woman has central air Every day I walk up three flights of stairs And it's getting hot this summer Label president has got healthcare Label president has got healthcare Every day I walk up three flights of stairs And it's really hot this summer Bummer Bummer that the world's a great big awful place And frequently unfair It really shouldn't come as much of a surprise to find There's just not enough to share We're going to the discount store We're going to the discount store Can't afford what we used to afford And we hardly even noticed

You're always looking at me sideways Wondering what galaxy I'm from What on earth do I need to prove to you? When everything that you already think is true I'm not normal Not a regular guy If I was run of the mill I wouldn't catch your eye I'm not normal And I'm not afraid To hate sports on TV drinking beer and trying to get laid That's what I'm talking about If you were ever in doubt I'm not the normallest guy in town You're always laughing at me baby You think my dreams are far away But I won't settle for less than I deserve I can only be a failure if I lack the nerve And act Normal Just like a regular guy And put my pants on baby one leg at a time If I was Normal Would you still think I was strange To have a steady job and earn a living wage each day That's what you're dreaming about If it was ever in doubt I'd be as normal as the day is long And I'd even write you A happy song I could snicker and sneer and put on airs But the fact is I need someone who cares Just not whether we're Normal We could be irony-free And then I'd love you And you could try to love me too You'd be the queen of the prom And then I'd be the king And I'd love you till you never come down Normal I'd date girls my own age And wear my hair real short And never ever change my taste Normal Just an average joe And you'd think I was fine And you'd tell me so I would know From the sound of your voice If there was ever a choice You'd love the least normal guy in town So tell me how can I be down?

by calamity gardens my school uniform hardens as they sound the alarm it's all done and while vanity pardons the insanity warrants the finale has started for everyone you better put that boy away before he hurts somebody it's not funny you better put that boy away before he hurts somebody it's not funny but it's true whatever happened to you now it's happening to me too in the mists of suburbia there's a pool by a curb yeah where a little boy learned his lesson there was no one to save him from his curious nature so he followed the man to his basement flat you better put that boy away before he hurts somebody's little bunny you better put that boy away before he hurts somebody cause that somebody is you that's when i learned what to do whatever you do to me i do to you whatever happens to me happens to you whatever happened to you now it's happening to me too it takes a village to raise an idiot it takes a fool to make a fool whatever i had you've already taken it now ain't that cool for a lie that's a pretty good one and that's what i learned from you you better put that boy away before he hurts somebody it's not funny you better put that boy away before he hurts somebody it's not funny but it's true whatever happened to you now it's happening to me too it's happening to me too

Summer Heroine She's a candy necklace wrapped around your wrist When it gets too crazy to exist Give your summer girl a little kiss Summer Heroine She's a steady date if you'd like to lose some weight She smiles and says that everything is great All you have to do is shoot straight Summertime and the living is easily avoided if you choose When you kiss your Summer Heroine You won't remember when you lose Summer Heroine She's an acquired taste Open arms you will embrace Tell me what's a little pasty face when she can wrap her arm around your waist Summer Heroine She's a hit from hell Not the shit the drug stores sell Summer she's the bête and the belle Summertime and the living is easily avoided if you wish When you love Summer Heroine You won't remember what you miss

The misery that I endured It seems so foolish these days But darling you can rest assured I'm a changed man these days Stupid jokes we used to share They hang around me in the air And that scent you used to wear I can still detect it there I miss you I do Though I never planned it The more that I think of it It's true I miss you I do I can't understand it No matter how hard I try I still miss you Those I've known since you Well they liked me in their own way But when I tried to touch like we used to They just turned and ran away All of my senses ache I've taken to drinking I wonder did I make a mistake? Darling I've been thinking I miss you I do Though I never planned it The more that I think of it It's true I miss you I do I can't understand it No matter how hard I try I still miss you Darling it's true Oh how I miss you
