Letterbomb

Nobody likes you...
Everyone left you...
They're all out without you...
Having fun...

Where have all the bastards gone?
The underbelly stacks up ten high
The dummy failed the crash test
Collecting unemployment checks
Like a flunkie along for a ride

Where have all the riots gone
As your city's model gets pulverized?
What's in love is now in debt
On your birth certificate
So strike the fucking match to light this fuse!

The town bishop is an extortionist
And he don't even know that you exist
Standing still when it's do or die
You better run for your fucking life

It's not over 'till your underground
It's not over before it's too late
It's cities burnin'
It's not my burden
It's not over before it's too late

There's nothing left to analyze

Where will all the martyrs go when the virus cures itself?
And where will we all go when it's too late?

And don't look back

You're not the Jesus of Suburbia
The St. Jimmy is a figment of
Your father's rage and your mother's love
Made me the idiot America

It's not over 'till your underground
It's not over before it's too late
It's cities burnin'
It's not my burden
It's not over before it's too late

She said I can't take this place
I'm leaving it behind

Well she said I can't take this town
I'm leaving you tonight
Wake me up when september ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

Like my fathers come to pass
Seven years has gone so fast
Wake me up when September ends

Here comes the rain again
Falling from the stars
Drenched in my pain again
Becoming who we are

As my memory rests
But never forgets what I lost
Wake me up when September ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

Ring out the bells again
Like we did when spring began
Wake me up when September ends

Here comes the rain again
Falling from the stars
Drenched in my pain again
Becoming who we are

As my memory rests
But never forgets what I lost
Wake me up when September ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
Wake me up when September ends

Like my father's come to pass
Twenty years has gone so fast
Wake me up when September ends
Wake me up when September ends
Wake me up when September ends
Homecoming
I. THE DEATH OF ST. JIMMY
My heart is beating from me,
I am standing all alone,
Please call me only if you are coming home,
Waste another year flies by,
Waste a night or two,
You taught me how to live.

In the streets of shame,
Where you've lost your dreams in the rain,
There's no sign of hope,
The stems and seeds of the last of the dope,
There's a glow of light,
The St. Jimmy is the spark in the night,
Bearing gifts and trust,
The fixture in the city of lust

What the hells your name,
What's your pleasure and what's your pain?
Do you dream too much?
Do you think what you need is a crutch?

In the crowd of pain, St. Jimmy comes without any shame,
He says "We're fucked up",
But we're not the same,
And mom and dad are the ones you can blame

Jimmy died today
He blew his brains out into the bay,
In the state of mind in my own private suicide

II. EAST 12TH STREET
And nobody cares,
And nobody cares,
Does anyone care if nobody cares?,
And nobody cares,
And nobody cares,
Does anyone care if nobody cares?,

Jesus is filling out paperwork now,
At the facility on east 12th st,
He's not listening to a word now,
He's in his own world,
And he's daydreaming

He'd rather be doing something else now,
Like cigarettes and coffee with the underbelly,
His life's on the line with anxiety now,
And she had enough,
And he's had plenty

Somebody get me out of here,
Anybody get me out of here,
Somebody get me out of here,
Get me the fuck right out of here

So far away,
I don't want to stay, Get me outta here right now,
I just wanna be free,
Is there a possibility,
Get me out of here right now,
This life like dream ain't for me.

III. NOBODY LIKES YOU
I fell asleep while watching Spike TV,
After 10 cups of coffee,
And you're still not here,
Dreaming of a song,
But something went wrong,
and I can't tell anyone,
'Cus no one's here

Left me here alone,
When I should have stayed home,
After 10 cups of coffee,
I'm thinking,
Where'd you go?

Nobody likes you,
Everyone left you,
They're all out without you,
Havin' fun,
Everyone left you,
Nobody likes you,
They're all out without you,
Havin' fun,
Where'd you go?

IV. ROCK 'N' ROLL GIRLFRIEND

I got a rock and roll band,
I got a rock and roll life,
I got a rock and roll girlfriend,
And another ex-wife

I got a rock and roll house,
I got a rock and roll car,
I play the shit out the drums,
And I can play the guitar

I got a kid in New York,
I got a kid in the Bay,
I haven't drank or smoked nothin',
In over 22 days,
So get off of my case

V. WE'RE COMING HOME AGAIN
Here they come marching down the street,
Like a desperation murmur of a heart beat,
Coming back from the edge of town,
Underneath their feet

The time has come and it's going nowhere,
Nobody ever said that life was fair now,
Go-carts and
guns are treasures they will bear,
In the summer heat

The world is spinning around and around,
Out of control again,
From the 7-11 to the fear of breaking down,
So send my love a letterbomb,
And visit me in hell,
We're the ones going

Home.
We're coming home again

I started fuckin' running,
Just as soon as my feet touch ground,
We're back in the barrio,
But to you and me, that's jingletown

Home.
We're coming home again,

Nobody likes you,
Everyone left you,
They're all out without you,
Having fun.
Whatsername
Thought I ran onto you down on the street
Then it turned out only to be a dream
I made a point to burn all of the photographs
She went away and then I took a different path
I remember the face
But I cant recall the name
Now I wonder how whatsername has been

Seems that she disappeared without a trace
Did she ever marry old what's his face?
I made a point to burn all of the photographs
She went away and then I took a different path
I remember the face
But I cant recall the name
Now I wonder how whatsername has been

Remember, whatever
It seems like forever ago
Remember, whatever
It seems like forever ago
The regrets are useless
In my mind
She's in my head
I must confess
The regrets are useless
She's in my head
From so long ago

(Go, Go, Go, Go..)

And in the darkest night
If my memory serves me right
I'll never turn back time

Forgetting you, but not the time
