Track Name: kids these days
Kids these days just don't get it
They don't think like me
Kids these days just don't get it
They don't take life seriously

My lips moving
They say nothing at all
Too difficult and technical
My back's breaking
I keep saying
I gotta get outta here, man

I'm from the city
Why don't you like me?
I wish you could make me understand
I'm not a monster
I speak your language
Let me make you understand

Why kids these days
Just don't get it
They don't think like me
Kids these days
Just don't get it
They don't take life seriously

I really think that we're alright
I just can't figure how
To sort these figures out
We need to be on all the time
There's no turning off
Ain't no dropping out

Just keep talking
I'll keep stopping the clock
Predictable, typical
It's so simple
The writing's all on the wall
I don't wanna do this anymore

I'm from the city
I speak the language
I know the business
Cause I'm not a monster
I'll make it easy
Help me try to understand

Why kids these days
Just don't get it
They don't think like me
Kids these days
Just don't get it
They don't take life seriously
Track Name: my room
my room
it's the place that you go when you're feeling sad
my room
it's the place that you go when you're feeling mad
my room
it's the place that you go when you're feeling bad
my room
and i'm never gonna leave

my room
today is the day you face the music
my room
you're gonna go outside for once
my room
you're gonna make something of your life?
my room
i thought the walls were red, but they're green!

today you're going to learn the game of life
and you're going to see - there is a light at the tunnel
just step through that door!
but you're afraid...because this is your favorite place

i'm king of my room!
and i'm never gonna leave it
i'm king of my room!
you know I do a really great job
i'm king of room!
you know that i'm
king of my room, king of my room, king of my room, king of my room

my room
you look around at these four walls and you think
i hate these colors! hasta la vista.
it's time to face the music, face the sunshine
give me every color in the world!

i'm king of my room!
and I'm never gonna leave it
i'm king of my room!
you know I do a really great job
i'm king of room!
you know that I'm
king of my room, king of my room, king of my room, king of my room

blue green yellow and red
all these colors in my head
monday tuesday any day
an endless loop, i let it play
i wish i was, i wish i was
in tune with it, i'm losing it!
if you could see me, then you'd believe in
the world I'm living in, world i'm living in

Track Name: THIS IS IT
I booked a trip today
Cause I need to get away
I think I deserve it
And I'm checked out totally

But let's get real anyway
You never really get away anyway
The same thing, everywhere and every way
But it's not so bad

It's a beautiful day
Somewhere out there
This is it, you can't get out of this
That's a fact, Jack
You're not listening, man
This is it, you can't get out of this
This is it, you can't get out of this

Mom says I'm gonna need
The safety and security
A nice education
It's lost on me totally

But let's get real anyway
You never really get away anyway
The same thing, everywhere and every way
So what shall we do?

It's a great big world,
So let's go explore it!
This is it, you can't get out of this
It's been a long time
Since I felt like myself
This is it, you can't get out of this
This is it, you can't get out of this

This guy keeps following me
I just can't get him to leave
That guy is actually me
But I hate that guy...

I have to go
Go see a head shrinker
This is it, you can't get out of this
I'm onto something
I'm having a breakthrough!
This is it, you can't get out of this
This is it, you can't get out of this
This is it, you can't get out of this
Track Name: stranger
No, I never wanted to stay
Now I'm floating and I can't get away
But I taste the water and it's sweeter than ever

All these people high in the sky
You can see it in the whites of their eyes
There's a hunger and a burning desire
To bring me along

It gets stranger here everyday
It gets stranger here everyday

When you're inside
Your thoughts melt away
Everyone's insane
They want you to play the game

I wake up and I'm further away
Can't remember what I did yesterday
So I ask my neighbor
And he looks at me stranger

It gets stranger here everyday
It gets stranger here everyday

When you're inside
Your thoughts melt away
Everyone's insane
But it's all gonna be okay

Been walking in a daze all day
I hope I make it back okay.............
