MxPx Biting The Bullet

She said “there’s nothing you can say to me that hasn’t been said

There’s nothing you can do to me that hasn’t been done inside my head, done inside my head”

“Well what else do you have up there that isn’t tied down?

You make a lot of noise for a girl from south of town”

She’s so calm, yet so confused

She don’t know she’s being used

She tries so hard, but it makes no difference

Cause biting the bullet is bad for business

She pretends to be so interested in current affairs

Pretends she doesn’t notice when she sees so many people stare

She counted 39 steps from her door to her car

39 thousand more just to get herself out of the dark

Now she sees a spark, and now she sees a spark

She’s so calm, yet so confused

She don’t know she’s being used

She tries so hard, but it makes no difference

Cause biting the bullet is bad for business

The pretty picture she tried to find

Were only real inside her mind

She broke a window inside her soul

It hurts more than you’ll ever know

She’s so calm, yet so confused

She don’t know she’s being used

She tries so hard, but it makes no difference

Cause biting the bullet is bad for business

MxPx Correct Me If I’m Wrong

Did you forget what’s important in you life?

Somewhat confused, everthing is going wrong

Do you regret the decisions that you’ve made?

I don’t expect a second chance to come along

You already found the book

with all the answers to all your questions

so take a closer look

You’re in the turn land and I’m the intersection

Did you forget when you wakled out of my room

to turn off the light and say goodnight

your answer’s coming soon

I will admit in the end I’ll be O.K.

I think it safe to say, you don’t know

If we’re better off this way

Please don’t forget how to laugh out loud

And be proud of yourself

I know you’ll do what’s right for you

MxPx Important Enough To Mention

They all wanna talk when I’m not around

but when I’m back in town they’re no where to be found

they got things to say about things they don’t know

and don’t have much to show of intellectual conversation

words will often hide the truest form of intention

I can see what you all lack inside isn’t important enought to mention;

they won’t deal with themselves wasting time doing something else

temporary indoor fun they never go out into the sun

my freedom to express has never been reasked more

since when is it their chore to tell me what to live my life for

I know that you wanna hear

I’m gone for good

I know you want me to leave

you won’t get rid of me that easy

Your hurting words

in the end they’ll mean nothing to me

all your lies

in the end your hungry eyes will see

nothing to me….

MxPx Kids In America

Looking out a dirty old window,

Down below the cars,

In the city go rushing by,

I sit here alone and I wonder why.

Friday night and everyone’s moving,

I can feel the heat,

but it’s soothing, heading down,

I search for the beat in this dirty town.

[Chorus:]

Down town the young ones are going

Down town the young ones are growing

We’re the kids in America (whoa-o)

We’re the kids in America (whoa-o)

Everybody live for the music-go-round

Bright lights, the music gets faster

Look boy, don’t check on your watch

Not another glance

I’m not leaving now, honey not a chance

Hot-shot, give me no problems

Much later baby you’ll be saying never mind

You know life is cruel, life is never kind

[Chorus:]

Kind hearts don’t make a new story

Kind hearts don’t grab any glory

We’re the kids in America (whoa-o)

We’re the kids in America (whoa-o)

Everybody live for the music-go-round

la-la-la-la-la-laa

la-la-la-la-la-laa sing!

la-la-la-la-la-laa

la-la-la-la-la-laa

Come closer, honey that’s better

Got to get a brand new experience

Feeling right

Oh don’t try to stop baby

Hold me tight

Outside a new day is dawning

Outside Suburbia’s sprawling everywhere

I don’t want to go baby

[Chorus:]

New York to east California

There’s a new wave coming I warn you

We’re the kids in America (whoa-o)

We’re the kids in America (whoa-o)

Everybody live for the music-go-round

la-la-la-la-la-laa

la-la-la-la-la-laa sing!

la-la-la-la-la-laa

la-la-la-la-la-laa

We’re the kids

We’re the kids

We’re the kids in America.

We’re the kids

We’re the kids

We’re the kids in America.

We’re the kids

We’re the kids

We’re the kids in America.

We’re the kids

We’re the kids

We’re the kids in America.

We’re the kids

We’re the kids

We’re the kids in America!

MxPx Honest Answers

I’ll try to shed some common sense, situation so intense

many questions, don’t know whys & all the lies got tempers risin’

there’s 2 or 3 sides to it all, but just one truth if I recall

looking to & thinking through, the word of God infinite, true

If you want honest answers, I know you do, so say it’s true

we all want honest answers, something true, it’s nothing new

you’re threatened by what you don’t understand, and it’s time

give up yourself, why won’t you stop facading? This wicked world

so set in the ways, you’ve been taought day after day

this nations brainwashed, without a clue, still they know not what they do

i can’t cast the stone, cause iv’e got problems of my own

but i’m discussing, being real, this just the way I feel

MxPx Blue Moon

You saw me standing alone

Without a dream in my heart

Without a love of my own

Blue Moon

You know just what I was there for

You heard me saying a prayer for

Someone I really could care for

And then there suddenly appeared before me

The only one my arms will hold

I heard somebody whisper please adore me

And when I looked to the Moon it turned to gold

Blue Moon

Now I’m no longer alone

Without a dream in my heart

Without a love of my own

And then there suddenly appeared before me

The only one my arms will ever hold

I heard somebody whisper please adore me

And when I looked the Moon had turned to gold

Blue moon

Now I’m no longer alone

Without a dream in my heart

Without a love of my own

Blue moon

Now I’m no longer alone

Without a dream in my heart

Without a love of my own

MxPx Democracy

believing the lies defines american

they don’t realize their ignorance and sin

democracy ain’t real it’s a fairytale

anarchy now then spend the night in jail

i won’t pretend that it ain’t wrong

i won’t just go along

humanity is deseased

and the sickness has increased

for the people by the people

who’s considered people anyway?

the rich get richer and the poor get poorer

so much for equal opportunity!

MxPx Drum Machine Joy

MxPx Chop Chop

He’s got the cops, they’re knocking down his door

He left the murder weapon lying on the floor

The sister’s finally gone, now he’s the only son

It was a bloody day in Bremerton

One stop, chop shop, somebody call the cops [x2]

In a studio apartment, his axe wouldn’t stop

So many pieces everywhere he had to mop

She should have paid him back last week for all the meth

That still small voice told him “axe her to death”

One stop, chop shop, somebody call the cops [x2]

I hope they put this guy away, until the end of time

He must be messed up in the head, to committed this sick crime

His confession to the police, it painted such a gruesome scene

The apartment was more red, than they have ever seen

It’s so sad to see that chalky outline

B town murders happen all the time

One stop, chop shop, somebody call the cops [x2]
