BOSTON BANDS

When I want a band that really smokes 
I pump up some Extreme, you know it isn't a joke 
Is it true Til Tuesday started out here? 
I think Aerosmith is from Revere 
Well how about The Cars and New Edition 
New Kids On The Block, "Oh, they're wicked pissa!" 
It's nice that they were all bands from Boston 
but they don't mean sh*t to me 

No wonder they hate us 
Everyone hates us 
Boston bands, Boston bands 
Oh man it's not contagious 
Everyone hates us 
Boston bands, Boston bands 
Oh man, no wonder they hate us 
Everyone hates us 
Boston bands, Boston bands 

That's because they're not my type of Boston bands 

That's because they're not my type of Boston bands 

Bobby Brown jams out at a disco 
College girls pretend they're Letters To Chleo 
Got guitar god legends, like Billy Squier 
I think J. Geils used to sing in a choir 
It's nice the band Boston had a great career 
That's not the type of sh*t I wanna hear 
Where did Jon Butcher Axis go? 
and where the f*ck is Evan Dando? 

No wonder they hate us 
Everyone hates us 
Boston bands, Boston bands 
Oh man it's not contagious 
Everyone hates us 
Boston bands, Boston bands 
Oh man, no wonder they hate us 
Everyone hates us 
Boston bands, Boston bands 

That's because they're not my type of Boston bands 

That's because they're not my type of Boston bands

Trust (Life is a sweatshop)

I've told you all this before 
The reason we're together's cause we understand each other 
Blind trust never felt so good 
I want this for forever 
Why won't you come closer? 

I'm not sure I know how you feel 
Is our communication stronger without words? 
If I'm reading this one wrong just tell me 
... and if you want I'll go away 

You've done some strange things to me 
I want us to be honest 
If the timing's just bad for us? 
Last words, I'm not sure when I'll see you 
You meant so much to me, why'd you have to leave? 

I'm not sure I know how you feel 
Is our communication stronger without words? 
If I'm reading this one wrong just tell me 
... and if you want I'll go away 

I've told you all this before 

I've told you all this before 
Did you listen? 

I wish I told you this before 
Did you listen? 

I wish I told you this before 
Would you have listened?

Vigilante Politician

If it was up to me 
I'd have all of your problems figured out 
Right now your hopes and dreams would not be busted 

If you don't elect me 
Expect to live in poverty 
Cause those other men just can't be trusted 

If it was up to me (a vigilante) 
I'd end hypocrisy (the horror) 
I'd even kiss babies (anarchy) 
What's it gonna take before you believe? 

Takin' your matters into my own hands 
Fresh rhetoric is always in demand 
Welcome to the party, don't appear naive 
Cause no one in this business wears their heart on their sleeve 

The state of things is sad 
It really makes me mad 
Well, I'm here to prove that one man can make a difference 

As far as I can see 
The possibility
of freedom can't exist with intolerance 

If it was up to me (A vigilante) 
I'd end hypocrisy (the horror) 
I'd even kiss babies (anarchy) 
What's it gonna take before you believe 

Takin' your matters into my own hands 
Fresh rhetoric is always in demand 
Welcome to the party, don't appear naive 
Cause no one in this business wears their heart on their sleeve 

Well, if it was up to me 
If it was up to me 
If it was up to me 

Well, if it was up to me 
If it was up to me 
If it was up to me 

Ahhh, it's not up to me

Rude Behavior

Mom and Dad don't like when I smoke in the house 
And all their rules I don't like much 
Everyday I get asked questions I don't want to answer 
Where do I go? What do I do? 
They don't understand me when I try to explain 
Their generation's dead and mine's insane 
I've got so much shit on my mind 
This could be the end of all mankind 

When someone tells me how to live my life
that's... 

Rude, Rude Behavior
Rude, Rude Behavior 
If I say hello and I get no reply that's... 
Rude, Rude Behavior 
Rude, Rude Behavior 
Rude. 

Getting older it hasn't changed 
The rules just get rearranged 
You've got to make the best of this place 
Can't let all this work just go to waste 
Everybody's looking for an easy way out 
Some will fight, some will drop out 
The truth is know one knows why we're here 
So what's the point of living life in fear? 
They don't understand me when I try to explain 
Their generation's dead and mine's insane 
I've got so much shit on my mind 
This could be the end of all mankind 

When someone tells me how to live my life that's... 
Rude, Rude Behavior 
Rude, Rude Behavior 
If I say hello and I get no reply that's... 
Rude, Rude Behavior 
Rude, Rude Behavior 
Rude. 

Getting older it hasn't changed 
The roles just get rearranged 
You've got to make the best of this place 
can't let all this work just go to waste 
Everybody's looking for an easy way out 
Some will fight, some will drop out 
The truth is know one knows why we're here 
So what's the point of living life in fear?

Jake

Jake flipped his lid at 78 
He kinda lost control 
The doctor said she might recuperate 
but he was still going to hell 

His name is Jake 
His name is Jake and he kills for thrills 
Make no mistake 
His name is Jake and he kills for thrills 
A criminal 
Who's crimes were so unexpected 
Everybody thought his life was perfect 

He shot her up after 50 years of marriage 
What could have turned this old man into a savage? 

His name is Jake 
His name is Jake and he kills for thrills 
Make no mistake 
His name is Jake and he kills for thrills 
Called the police 
When he realized what he had done 
Then waited in the front lawn with the smoking gun 

Now Jake's doing time for the rest of his life 
He confessed to the police all how he shot his wife 
Jake's a good example why not to piss of an old man 
Now he's gonna rot for his crimes in the can! 

His name is Jake 
His name is Jake and he kills for thrills 
Make no mistake 
His name is Jake and he kills for thrills 
A criminal 
Who's crimes were so unexpected 
Everybody thought his life was perfect 
His name is Jake 
His name is Jake 
His name is Jake 
Make no mistake
