Track Name: Downfall of Family Values
Thanks to the downfall of family values

there ain't no virgins left in this town

to sacrifice


I guess our parents should thank the devil

for making us having sex

it seems to be the thing

that saved our lives


Chorus:
Hallelujah, I won't grow old in this town

In ten years we'll barely be around

And when the 90s finally come we'll be alright

We're gonna bid this town goodnight


Praise god from whom all blessings flow

Praise her for hell below

Horn or halo, angel - demon

It's the same


Light and darkness, pain and laughter

Scars that go or stay

I'll stick with you every moment

Either Way


Chorus


Here's to the freaks and the faggots

The slutty girl next door

The kingdom of god is yours


Don't fear a thing my darling

The paranoid satanic

We'll love each other

Through the panic
Track Name: Poughkeepsie, NY, We Love You
Could we please take a walk

and catch up a bit

it's been so long since I've seen your face

and even though we both know

time has changed us, for sure

at least we still have a familiar place


Chorus:

And Pougkeepsie, New York, We love you

You're the only thing left of us now

And the memories sting, like a sweet autumn fling

Poughkeepsie, stay with us somehow



your parents protested at the school board meeting

don't you dare put this filth in their heads

and we laughed and we moaned, we smiled and we groaned

as we did dirty things in their bed


Chorus

The witch in the woods she would walk behind

the paper mill graveyard where we first kissed

and i still hear her voice, leaving me with a choice

you can grow old, or stay young instead

chorus
Track Name: The Years Ahead of Us
Broke your bones and bottle on the side of the road

we graduate tomorrow, then who knows how it goes

nobody's gonna care when we march down the gym floor


I thought you may have killed him cuz you punched him so hard

The ground drank the beer and the blood from your arm

Those fuckers should have known not to push you around anymore


Chorus

We'll be much better in the years ahead of us

you mark my words, we'll take this world by storm

the past it will be nothin' but somethin' we can laugh about


We'll be much better in the years ahead of us

Kick the ass of the thought of a boring day

the past it will be nothin' but somethin' we can live without


We've hung around each other ever since we were kids

hid your dirty magazines underneath my bed

I never got an A and you never got below one


But none of that will matter when tomorrow is gone

and forget about the days and the thing we did wrong

we'll find an unmarked way to become someone


Chorus


I'll pick up my new girlfriend tomorrow evening

We'll kiss in the darkness of the cinema screen

and slip my hands, my fingers underneath her dress


No, I don't give a damn if the audience is

Bothered by our laughter, by us stupid kids

I wanna take her with me into the years ahead


Chorus
Track Name: Iggy Pop Cassette
Broke your bones and bottle on the side of the road

we graduate tomorrow, then who knows how it goes

nobody's gonna care when we march down the gym floor


I thought you may have killed him cuz you punched him so hard

The ground drank the beer and the blood from your arm

Those fuckers should have known not to push you around anymore


Chorus

We'll be much better in the years ahead of us

you mark my words, we'll take this world by storm

the past it will be nothin' but somethin' we can laugh about

Before she figures me out, before she learns my motives

i've got to use the time left, make sure that she does notice

that the two of us have, that the two of us both have

an iggy pop cassette


she flew in from foreign lands to learn about our treasures

tattooed fast food elvis stamps, mercedes benz and leather

clad girls on the dance floor

DJ could you play us some more, of that iggy pop cassette


Before she learns that my friends are mostly books and records

and that each year in gym class, I get a D for effort

and spend most of my school days

with my radio, headphones that play an iggy pop cassette


(long instrumental section)


Before you graduate from this gym back to your homeland

could I please get your address, maybe I'll see you again

in a future where we've grown up

but we still can't get enough of our iggy pop cassette
Track Name: Evicted from a Haunted House on Halloween
Seems that your sympathy card was lost in the mail
I'll be sure to call and complain to the postal service tomorrow
I hope you still know I'm a good man and often honest without fail
and worth all the kisses, the long goodbyes, and money borrowed

The dreams of this country they look so good if you know you can get them
The white picket fences, the swimming pools, and brand new cars
Well Lord knows I've tried to set my sights on the stuff this world gives you
But nothing works out, I've tried too long with all my heart


Chorus:
And tonight there's an audience on the sidewalk looking at me
Demons and monsters, bedsheets ghosts, things unseen
As they throw all my spells and my stereos and goals to the city
Evicted from this old place on Halloween


There's never an evening that I don't spend remembering our nights long ago
Your skeleton stalkings hang on the corner of my bed
The flickering candle, the OUIJA board covered with your underwear
As serpents and spirits cast their spells above our heads

I never thought you would disappear into tomorrow
I never could picture this house without you somewhere inside
And as my hair turns gray and my face loses its color
I see your reflection, it haunts my mirror, and I can't hide

Chorus


Take me a picture, write me into a happy horror screenplay
Where everything works out no matter what evil things come before
I'll tattoo some sacred, unholy symbol onto my body
and pray to whatever god or devil brings you back to my door.
