Track Name: Ramen
(verse1)
I turn on the tv
and blame it on the man
making his address
he don't know me
but he knows what i'm thinkin'
man, I ain't impressed
Now we need his assistance
More than he'll ever know
the flares are comin'
so grab a match
throw away that phone
(chorus)
Ramen will not save us all
the owner of the .223
will be standin' tall
so read up on your comics
and drink that alcohol
Ramen will not save us all
(verse 2)
I look in the mirror
and stare into the eyes
of a digital man
He don't know how to hunt
or how to start a fire with his hands
How the hell did we get here
Now I don't know where to go
Just point and shoot son
and pray that god will
forgive your soul
(chorus)
Ramen will not save us all
the owner of the .223
will be standin' tall
so read up on your comics
and drink that alcohol
Ramen will not save us all
(verse 3)
I turn on the tv
and blame it on the man
makin' his address
He don't know me
but he knows what I'm thinking
Man, I ain't impressed
Now we need his assistance
more than he'll ever know
the flares are comin'
so grab a match
throw away that phone
(chorus)
Ramen will not save us all
the owner of the .223
will be standin' tall
so read up on your comics
and drink that alcohol
Ramen will not save us all
Track Name: GFY
(verse1)
Let me see that fake ass smile
pull you've got
there's no denial
woah-oh
Whisper in my ear sweet nothings
I will scream back sour somethings
woah-oh
It must be hard to contain
that useless knowledge
in your brain
No?
Listen to the whiskey
goin' down me don't you miss me
singin' woah- woah-oh oh oh
(chorus)
GFY. Don't ask why. GFY
GFY. Don't ask why. GFY
(verse2)
I know what's behind your face
I wanna get inside and
place an order
Two black eyes, a punctured lung
a broken rib, let's have some fun now
woah-oh
It must be hard to regain
the consciousness inside your brain
No?
Listen to the whiskey
goin' down me don't you miss me
singin' woah- woah-oh oh oh
(chorus)
GFY. don't ask why. GFY
GFY. don't ask why. GFY
(bridge) x2
Please don't make me
open up my eyes
I'm not ready for you
Track Name: Manic Mainstream (remastered)
(verse 1)
I WOKE UP TO THE SOUND OF HER FIST
SHOOK THE WALLS
I STILL REMEMBER
WATCHING THE RED IN HER EYES CONTROL THE ROOM
WE HAD NO CHOICE
BUT TO SURRENDER
I KNOW
HE DID ALL HE COULD
JUST TO PROTECT HER
BUT THE MADNESS WAS
WAY OUT OF CONTROL
SO WE MADE THE CALL
PREVENT DISASTER
OH THE SIRENS
I CAN HEAR THE SIRENS
(chorus)
PACK MY BAGS FOR ME
SHE CRIED IN HER OWN WAY
THE DOCTOR SAYS ITS TIME
FOR HER TO GO AWAY
MEDICATE
SO SAY YOUR PRAYERS FOR ME
MY SON I'LL BE HOME SOON
YOU'RE ALL I THINK ABOUT INSIDE
THIS WHITE PADDED ROOM
(verse 2)
SOME TIME HAS PASSED
AND I REFUSE TO ACCEPT
TO JUST FORGET
PRETEND WE'RE NORMAL
LATE AT NIGHT I HEAR THE TEARS IN HIS EYES
THEY'RE SAYING I CANT TAKE
THIS ANY LONGER
TIL' DEATH DO US PART
MIGHT HAVE BEEN
IF NOT FOR RELAPSE
BUT THE MADNESS WAS
WAY OUT OF CONTROL
SO WE MADE THE CALL
PREVENT DISASTER
OH THE SIRENS
NOT AGAIN THE SIRENS
(chorus)
PACK MY BAGS FOR ME
SHE CRIED IN HER OWN WAY
THE DOCTOR SAYS ITS TIME
FOR HER TO GO AWAY
MEDICATE
SO SAY SO YOUR PRAYERS FOR ME
MY SON I'LL BE HOME SOON
YOU'RE ALL I THINK ABOUT INSIDE
THIS WHITE PADDED ROOM
(bridge)
CAN'T CHANGE THIS LIFE OF MINE
I'M PART OF YOUR DESIGN
JUST LET ME GO
I WON'T FORGET THE DAY
WHEN I HEARD YOU SAY
JUST LET ME GO
WE HAD NO CHOICE
HE DID ALL HE COULD
OH THE SIRENS
I CAN'T FORGET THE SIGH......RENS
(outro)
PACK MY BAGS FOR ME
SHE CRIED IN HER OWN WAY
THE DOCTOR SAYS ITS TIME
FOR HER TO GO AWAY
MEDICATE
SO SAY SO YOUR PRAYERS FOR ME
MY SON I'LL BE HOME SOON
YOU'RE ALL I THINK ABOUT INSIDE
THIS WHITE PADDED ROOM
Track Name: The Worm
I'm so sorry
I don't possess the key
to open up your past
and change for you
what you need to
I try to believe
that there is hope for you
it's almost over now
I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you
(chorus)
You can't find hope at the bottom
At the bottom
bottom of a bottle
Just hook the worm
hook the worm and watch
him smile
You don't deserve to be
stripped, scourged, and spat upon
just like the worm
you're soaked, you're soaked
you're soaked in bile.
(verse 2)
You're still cryin'
suck it up, you bitch, it's gone
life as you knew it died
you blew it
time to redesign
Now read a chapter
from the book I call my life
I should have killed myself
at least a couple hundred times
Now read the one about the son
I brought into this world
take you're time,
I'll wait for you
(chorus)
You can't find hope at the bottom
At the bottom
bottom of a bottle
Just hook the worm
hook the worm and watch
him smile
You don't deserve to be
stripped, scourged, and spat upon
just like the worm
you're soaked, you're soaked
you're soaked in bile.
(bridge)
When life hits you
life shits on you
then you'll find
you get no serenade
just brie with your wine
So lace up
embrace us
and swallow your pride
rise, rise
so lace up
embrace us
and swallow your pride
rise, rise, rise
(chorus)
You can't find hope at the bottom
At the bottom
bottom of a bottle
Just hook the worm
hook the worm and watch
him smile
You don't deserve to be
stripped, scourged, and spat upon
just like the worm
you're soaked, you're soaked
you're soaked in bile.
Track Name: Give In (remastered)
strap in and enjoy the ride
f$@$ everything you've learned
Hell, f$@$ your pride
Don't attempt to test me
Trust me. I taste better than suicide
Use me, use me
It don't take much to see
You feel so lonely. Feel so lonely
(CHORUS)
GIVE IN GIVE IN TO ME
LIFE ISN'T WHAT IT SEEMS
GIVE UP GIVE UP
YOUR LITTLE PATHETIC DREAMS
GIVE IN GIVE IN TO ME
GOD ISN'T WHAT HE SEEMS
GIVE UP ALL REALITY
Take a hit, loosen up your tie
F$@$ paying all the bills
Kiss your thoughts goodbye
Just ignite your right to see the light
cuz you know you need me just to make it thru the night
Use me use me
It don't take much to see
You feel so lonely. Feel so lonely
(CHORUS)
GIVE IN GIVE IN TO ME
LIFE ISN'T WHAT IT SEEMS
GIVE UP GIVE UP
YOUR LITTLE PATHETIC DREAMS
GIVE IN GIVE IN TO ME
GOD ISN'T WHAT HE SEEMS
GIVE UP ALL REALITY
(BREAKDOWN)
Please guide him towards the right path
My father would say
Protect him when I can not
Each and every day
I tried to be all he wants
But the voices say
Inject me. Don't reject me
Please don't be ashamed

Two weeks since I've seen ya last
Hope you're doing real well
Don't forget your past
Patiently I wait for your return
Cuz I know you can't resist
Your next chance to burn
Use me use me
It don't take much to see
You feel so lonely. Feel so lonely
(CHORUS)
GIVE IN GIVE IN TO ME
LIFE ISN'T WHAT IT SEEMS
GIVE UP GIVE UP
YOUR LITTLE PATHETIC DREAMS
GIVE IN GIVE IN TO ME
GOD ISN'T WHAT HE SEEMS
GIVE UP ALL REALITY
(outro) give in give in to me
Give up give up your dreams
Give in give in to me
Give up all reality
