All my axes are exes All my songs are deceased All my axes are exes And I want them back It used to all come so easily Until something sucked the life out of me Now I've got to get it all back I feel just like I'm running in place My mind is only taking up space I guess I'll stumble through this alone Because all my axes are exes All my songs are deceased All my axes are exes And I want them back And I want them now It's been so long I don't know what I'm supposed to do here It's my new fear that the time will come And nothing good is coming my way The world has turned left me here With my guitar and some ancient gear And I hope that I could write a song and sing it to you

Thanks Obama 03:02
When the leader of the free world has nothing to lose You can tell a lot about him by the issues he'll choose Is he focused on our freedoms Or held back by his demons It's time to act, so don't look back It's not all about you I want a President who doesn't give a fuck About the residents who are still stuck In the 1860s, the 1950s Let's catch those fuckers up When the leader of the free world raised a child of her own She grew stronger than those assholes have ever shown it's perspective not directive Basic rights are not subjective You're not old fashioned, you lack compassion It's not all about you I want a President with a uterus all these rich white men are useless They need a mother or they’ll get each other To blow those fuckers up I want a President who’s a socialist I want a President who’s a feminist I want a President who’s an immigrant I want a President who’s fucking sick of it

So Now What 04:28
Remember when the days began at 9 PM We didn't need the sun to show the way We fooled around We drove around We took control of this little town No one ever told us we should settle down We've all grown up so now what? We've got our jobs so now what? We had some kids so now what? What the fuck are we supposed to do next? We've got our jobs We've got our kids We've got each other, that should be enough So why am I so afraid That nothing else is ever going to happen again Remember when the days would get the best of us We couldn’t catch a break to save our lives They fucked with you They fucked with us That little town took control of us No one ever told us we should settle down

Mountain 03:16
I can see for miles from here I can see the world from the summit I can see the world but they can't see me This is where I came to hide This is where I hoped you would find me This is where I hoped you would set me free So I climb to the top and then I turn around and climb back down Then I sink to to the bottom to the point that I would almost drown I don't want to waste another single day I just want this emptiness to go away So I climb to the top and then I turn around and climb back down And then I do it again I can hardly breathe down here I can't see a thing when I'm under I can't see a thing when I can't see you This is where I came to hide Now I'm so afraid it'll kill me Now I'm so afraid it'll kill us both

I want to cut my ears off When I hear that song Could a hundred million people Really be that wrong So I go to the punk show Just to get away I press myself against the barrier And the band begins to play I take it in I’ve never felt so self-assured I take it in Power chords and fragile words Jimmy’s on the mic tonight To tell us that kids are still alright Jimmy’s gonna show us it’s okay We are nothing like them Jimmy’s gonna play guitar Jimmy’s gonna show us who we are Jimmy’s gonna let us in We are nothing like them I learned that I’m not dead inside I only found a place to hide I’ll tell you when I’ve had enough I chose the punk, fuck the lust

Go 03:01
I'm on my way I thought that I could leave all my worries behind But now that I’m here I'm disappointed to find It's just a different kind of worry I open the door The worry turns to fury and I try and try and everything just blows up in my face I place an awful lot of faith in my ability to come back I don't want to be the one who has to come back Sometimes I wish that I could fucking go It’s up to me to turn this around I can't spend the whole goddamn day moping around I pick up the pieces and I bring them all to you I’m never put together because there’s never any glue Sometimes I wish that I could fucking go to you And sweep you off your feet Just one more victory before defeat But when I reach for you I trip over myself

The City 01:39
I don't want to live in the city Take me far away from all the lights I don't know why it always smells so shitty I just want to have some quiet nights I want to breathe I want to sleep I'm way too old I'm way too cheap I'm way too set in my ways I need a little space to breathe Sometimes I think I could get used to it Then I remember who I am

Breakdown 05:40
Something happened on the way to my breakdown I set myself up then I suffered the takedown I know it didn't come from you Because you're lying here right next to me too I used to think that it was me versus you But then I realized this world is fucking with you too I should have known it at the time When I saw the look of pain in your eyes Should I get on my feet Should I just stay down here on the ground And just accept this hand that was given to me Should we start over again What if we just make a brand new start I'd rather stay down here than get up and walk away from you Something happened on the way to my breakdown I set myself up then I suffered the takedown Everybody’s so full of shit When they say life is what you make of it I never opted into getting my ass kicked While everybody else just looks so fucking fantastic I've got to get ahold of myself Or I'll end up becoming somebody else Should I get ready to fight Maybe you should grab my hand and hold me back Because I can't handle another attack Should we start over again What if we just make a brand new start I'd rather stay down here than get up and walk away from you
