Lagwagon Bad Scene

Cause I’m a bad scene

and here’s everyone to blame but me

Everyone points

We all have all our selfish points

A broken machine

Used to puke up something good when we fed it

and I’m sure I’ll miss it

Not so sure I’ll ever see you

Five years desensitized

You’re my inspiration

Ten thousand silent miles to hell

Four well drinks, I am well

Six months in hiatus

A lifetime too short to save us

Never wanted to be famous

A good day to die off shameless

So fuck longevity

when there is no use in searching for a noose

Hanging on to abuse

sick of hanging around and waiting

Cause it’s bad scene

and there’s everyone to blame but me

Everyone points

We all have our selfish points

A broken machine

Used to puke up something good when we fed it

I’m against it

Bad scene

Lagwagon Baggage

All that we’ve been through

And all we can’t undo

I’m picking out the songs to set the mood

They’ll play them at a funeral for you

I have been the only friend

I have stayed until the end

I’m telling you my brother

I am through!

It’s a measure of pity

That I won’t carry… I won’t carry

It’s a matter of duty

But I won’t carry… I won’t carry you

Most of us have our secrets

One deep-rooted mark we can’t remove

I’m guessing yours still owns you

I can’t dig mine up to bury you

I have been the only friend

I have stayed until the end

I’m telling you my brother

I am through!

I will lie with the guilty

But I won’t carry… I won’t carry…

It’s a measure of bad dreams

But I won’t carry… I won’t carry you

Lagwagon Angry Days

Angry youth

MR. Elite

Your older now

Inside your head lives an old scene

MR. Punk

Sad and hating everyone

Your excuse is old

The way you felt has left you hating yourself

Cause everyone is so confused

You never worked for a cent

Self-destructive you pay your debt

Cause you miss another time

When all your friends were still divine

Now all of them have gone or changed

Do you still live in angry days?

Do you still live in angry days?

But if you lost someone you love

If your mask is taken off

Does life cut you down to size?

Does it open up your eyes?

Because they all have found their way

As you struggle through your maze

You built those walls of hate

Don’t tell me it’s too late

Cause everyone is so confused

You never worked for a cent

Self-destructive you pay your debt

Cause you miss another time

When all your friends were still divine

Now all of them have gone or changed

Do you still live in angry days?

Do you still live in angry days?

Do you still live in angry days?

Can you grow out of senseless hate?

Senseless hate?

Lagwagon Bad Moon Rising

I see the bad moon arising.

I see trouble on the way.

I see earthquakes and lightning.

I see bad times today.

[CHORUS:]

Don’t go around tonight,

Well, it’s bound to take your life,

There’s a bad moon on the rise.

I hear hurricanes ablowing.

I know the end is coming soon.

I fear rivers over flowing.

I hear the voice of rage and ruin.

[CHORUS]

All right!

Hope you got your things together.

Hope you are quite prepared to die.

Looks like we’re in for nasty weather.

One eye is taken for an eye.

[CHORUS]

[CHORUS]

Lagwagon Automatic

Get up, smile, find a need,

wash your hair, bleach your teeth

Develop habit,

Automatic

Compromise, build a bridge,

Sacrifice, sacrilege

Sell yourself,

Automatic

Nobody out there knows

None of them have intent

Pretension and purpose

Fashioned in plastic heads

Everyone drives all day

None of them have a goal

Everyone’s lost their way

All of them play the game

Set a goal

Make it happen

Imagine love

Fake a passion

Change your name

Stay in fashion

Make a deal

Make it happen

Compromise, build a bridge

Sacrifice, sacrilege

Same cars

Same clothes

Same desires

Same woes

Lose it all

Automatic

Nobody out there feels

None of them sees the end

Pretension and purpose

Fashioning plastic heads

Everyone drives all day

Searching their empty hearts

Everyone’s lost their way

All of us fall apart

Automatic

Automatic

Lagwagon Alien 8

Would it make you feel much better, if it was you against the world?

If you were an alien, If it were conspiracy?

And would it hurt to live in comfort, if you found someone to trust?

If you knew that you were with us, if we shared a common goal…

But you will isolate, alienate

No one can appreciate the poor miss understood

Can you see that I don’t care anymore?

Do you ever stop to listen? Are you a martyr for your pride?

Does it makes you fell much better when you are an alien?

‘coz you will isolate, alienate

No one can appreciate the poor miss understood

Can you see that I don’t care anymore?

Lagwagon B Side

If you could feel your legs falling out then

You might find your strength to stand your

Ground then you’d be close to them

Then you’d be close to god but you

Know you’re not

If you could make a fist you could punch

If you could fly your faith you could jump

Born in security fear of most everything

And anyone you can be

It could have been dull Kristina

We could have been sane it isn’t just death

Drugs and lost love these honors leave

Stains just let the freaks of failure sing over-

Night songs the b side is real and it

Plays on

Hey Kristina are you sleeping in I’m

Leaving you another long message

Interstate ten i lost my voice again this

Game was fixed it seems that I’ve been

Eighty-sixed

But your life is one zero zero one in

Analog faith and even if you connect

Them too little too late ’cause your life

Is like a b side its odder then a the

B side is real and it plays on

On and on

Lagwagon After You My Friend

Here he is, he saves a grin

He wants to be the one who doesn’t have to sink a level

Indiscrete, in his retreat

All he needs is just a taste of the bitter pride

He held in her name

Embrace the solitude of ordinary fucked up state of grace

Far away from the days he bared the cross she used to wear

In some resolve well aware

A little pitiful, a pin up boy they dress in grieving wear

Well at ease in consent in the drift of undertow

He won’t justify the pity from them

When he knows….fools in love are arrogant

Their sermons cloud his breathing air

He’s in love with an isolation from emotion

Here he is awaiting sentence

A fool to think that anyone can escape guilt and anguish

A subtlety that can’t be learned

A subtlety that can’t be taught

He is caught in the lure of second thoughts

He might still care

As he settles down well aware

Bound in secrecy. His voice will only dignify their fears

But sorrow is signified

He’s well aware of his pride

Lagwagon A Feedbag Of Truckstop Poetry

I pulled over for a feedbag I thought of you,

it wasn’t bad you had direction and drive

And you arrived at closing time to find

They wiped down the bar and they built you a bed

Laid your head to rest and left you try to true again

You may be proud then as it was always wish for thought

I would imagine you off maybe

I could see you again we could sit down and have a moment and talk about your suicide

And I would put away your death if you could put away the dope and all our enemies,

Well there’s no time for you to know them

Any crooked mind disease but hopeless fools

They will be missing you i pulled over for nostalgia

I thought of suffering the joke no one delivered the punchline

No resolution is here I couldn’t sharpen the view and it’s still drawn to you waiting on the new

But then this story has no end as we continue driving

Lagwagon Alison’s Disease

Can’t believe

Alison’s disease

Florescent, the store lights describe the end

And I can’t forget it

Demons can return

He caught up with her

Murderous hands cripple her eyes and mind

And I can’t blink so

Hail defeat

It’s reached everyone

Plagued generation

(Our last one)

The sun won’t rise again

Not for Alison

That’s what I see when I look in her eyes

and I can’t breathe so

Hail defeat

It’s reached everyone

Plagued generation

(Plagued generation)

Maybe I can piece together

Five cold days in late December

Stories of a monster swallowed

In a snow covered Lake Tahoe

Shining in her desperate despair

Alison was there

A moment I can freeze

But she can’t be the same person she used to be

Alison is gone

Alison is gone

(Alison is gone)

Alison is gone

Can’t believe

And Alison resides

On that frozen mountainside

That’s what I see when I look in her eyes

That’s what I see when I look in her eyes

(The sun won’t rise again)

That’s what I see when I look in her eyes

(The sun won’t rise again)

That’s what I see when I look in her eyes

(The sun won’t rise again)

That’s what I see when I look in her eyes

(Yeah!)
