Lyrics:

 

I'm the son of rage and love

The Jesus of suburbia (Verse 1)

From the Bible of none of the above

On a steady diet of

 

Soda pop and Ritalin

No one ever died for my sins in hell (Verse 2)

As far as I can tell

At least the ones I've gotten away with

 

And there's nothing wrong with me

This is how I'm supposed to be (Chorus)

In a land of make believe

That don't believe in me

 

Get my television fix

Sitting on my crucifix (Verse 3)

The living room in my private womb

While the moms and brads are away

 

To fall in love and fall in debt

To alcohol and cigarettes (Verse 4)

And Mary Jane to keep me insane

And doing someone else's cocaine

 

(Chorus)

Lyrics:

 

At the center of the earth

In the parking lot (Verse 1)

Of the 7-11 were I was taught

The motto was just a lie

 

It says home is were your heart is

But what a shame (Verse 2)

Cause everyone's heart doesn't beat the same

We're beating out of time

 

City of the dead

At the end of another lost highway

Sign misleading to nowhere (Chorus)

City of the damned

Lost children with there dirty faces today

No one really seems to care

 

I read the graffiti

In the bathroom stall (Verse 3)

Like the holy scriptures of a shopping mall

And so it seemed to confess

 

It didn't say much

But it only confirmed that (Verse 4)

The center of the earth is the end of the world

And I could really care less

 

(Chorus)

I don't care if you don't

I don't care if you don't (Intro) x4

I don't care if you don't care

 

I don't care! (Riff 1)

 

Everyone is so full of shit

Born and raised by hipocrits

Hearts recycled but never saved

From the cradle to the grave (Verse)

We are the kids of war and peace

From Anaheim to the Middle East

We are the stories and disciples

Of the Jesus of suburbia

 

Land of make believe

And it don't believe in me (Chorus)

Land of make believe

And I don't believe

 

And I don't care!

I don't care!

I don't care! (Riff 2)

I don't care!

I don't care!

IV. Dearly Beloved

------------------------------------------------------------

 

The first time, a distorted electric guitar strums each

chord once. After that, an acoustic strums through them

with the electric palm muting.

Lyrics:

 

Dearly beloved are you listening?

I cant remember a word that you were saying

Are we demented or are we disturbed?

The space that's in between insane and insecure

 

Oh therapy, can you please fill the void?

Am I retarded or am I just overjoyed

Nobody's perfect and I stand accused

For lack of a better word, and that's my beat excuse

Lyrics:

 

To live and not to breathe

Is to die in tragedy (Verse 1)

To run, to run away

To find what you believe

 

And I

Leave behind (Chorus)

This hurricane of fucking lies

 

I lost my faith to this

This town that don't exist (Verse 2)

So I run, I run awy

The light of masochist

 

And I

Leave behind (Chorus)

This hurricane of fucking lies

 

And I

Walked this line (Chorus 2)

A million and one fucking times

 

But not this time

 

I don't feel any shame

I wont apologize

When there ain't nowhere you can go (Piano Interlude)

Running away from pain

When you've been victimized

Tales from another broken...

 

Home!

You're leavin'

You're leavin'

You're leavin'

You're leavin HOME!
