Track Name: Villain
I'm a villain
And I like it that way
I'm a villain, yeah a villain
Don't believe a single word I say

I lie-lie-lie-lie for fun
I wouldn't hesitate to stab someone
I steal just for the joy of the taking
I get smashed for the thrill of something breaking

I'm a villain
I'll keep you up all night
I'm a villain, oh a villain
Turn on the dark, I'm afraid of the light

Villainy suits me like a goddamn professional
I've got the priest swilling holy wine when I'm in the confessional
I wanna feel your blood drippin' off my teeth
I look at you and all I see is a morsel of meat

Oh I'm a villain, darlin'
And it feels so good
I'm a villain, yeah a villain
Never do as I should

Don't care a whit for honor or valor
You can admire me for black leather and pallor
It feels just swell to be a ne'er-do-well
And if you don't like it, well I'll see you in Hell

I'm a villain, baby
Don't think I'm gonna change
I'm a villain, oh a villain
Yeah, you think I'm deranged
Track Name: Feelin' Good, Lookin' Dead
Feelin' good!
Lookin' dead!
I dunno what's real
And what's in my head x2

Just like an episode
Of "Murder She Wrote"
I can see your revolver
Under your coat

Ice pick stickin'
Outta my neck
But I feel no pain
So what the heck?

FG x LD x2

Every time you lookit me
I wish I was dead
Your love is like a bullet
In my pretty little head

All you can see
Are the whites of my eyes
I just wanna get
Between your thighs

FG x LD x2

All the blood's drained
Outta my face
But baby your blood's splattered
All over the place

Feels so sweet
Just like a love letter
Darlin' I don't even
Wanna get better

FG x LD x2
Track Name: Rotten
Everything you thought you'd be
Always out of reach just slightly
So you laid down in your own coffin
Does it feel good to turn rotten?

Apathy's calcified around your heart
Doing nothing ain't no art
Your aspirations buried and forgotten
But does it feel good to turn rotten?

Cut away the rot

You've never worried about surviving
Your passion's stifled when your trust fund's thriving
A sense of entitlement's all the sense you've gotten
So does it feel good to turn rotten?

Cut away the rot

Your lifeblood's stagnant and can't circulate
So we have no choice but to amputate
With fingers full of lead and mouth stuffed with cotton
Does it feel good to turn rotten?

Cut away the rot
Track Name: Gone Too Far
The drugs aren't working
And I'm afraid I've gone too far
Don't know what you see
When you look at me
The struggle or the scar

Broken hearts and pills
And all the things they leave behind
Like rusted, ruined dreams
In the corners of my mind

Ten little pills
Tucked safe down in my pocket
Like a faded, timeworn photo
In a golden locket

The drugs are kickin' in
And it feels good to go too far
Don't care what you see
When you look at me
Passed out at the bar

Broken hearts and pills
And all the things they leave behind
Like rusted, ruined dreams
In the corners of my mind

Nobody loves me
Quite like you do
Caressing my veins
'Til my lips turn blue

I used to long
For someone affectionate
Now I spend my nights
In the arms of an opiate

The drugs've got me reeling
And I know I've gone too far
Tell me what you see
When you look at me
Rueful, brash and scarred

Broken hearts and pills
And all the things they leave behind
Like rusted, ruined dreams
In the corners of my mind
Track Name: Fuck'em If They Can't Take a Joke
Hey Mister Landlord
Whaddya say?
Y'know my rent's
Too high to pay

He says "That's fine
if you're comin' up short
I'll just see you
In eviction court."

Fuck'em if they can't take a joke

Hey pretty girly
Are ya goin' my way?
How's about
Comin' over to play?

She says "You're cute
Why doncha buy me a beer?"
Then she struts off
'Cause she ain't even queer

Fuck'em if they can't take a joke

All these goddamn people
Demanding so much of me
They think I've gotta helluva nerve
But I just gotta stay free

Y'know life is a banquet
And most poor suckers, they're starvin' to death
But I just wanna live, live, live
And keep laughing 'til my last breath

Hey there boss
How do ya do?
Y'know I ain't comin' in
'Til quarter past two

He says "If you can't
Make it in on time
Why doncha go stand in
The unemployment line?"

Fuck'em if they can't take a joke
Fuck'em if they can't take a joke
Fuck'em if they can't take a joke
