Mary’s wiping ashes from her clothes Blackened matches strewn across the floor The smoke rose slowly and was pushed out by the vent The guiding light was just the tip of her cigarette She smokes in bed Mary doesn’t care about herself So what chance is there for anybody else Sometimes I wonder about the heartache that lies ahead Any day now she’ll set fire to her head She smokes in bed Nervous neighbors peeping through the blinds Piercing sirens cutting through the night Molten rubble settling to rest They searched for hours There wasn’t anybody left She smoked in bed

Laura 03:35
Well I’ve been sitting on this couch Feeling kinda bored and uninspired Writing thinly veiled fiction for the soul And feeling like a liar I’ve been thinking about you, Laura And thinking about the songs that you sing And how you sang with such conviction I almost forgot they weren’t for me And I know you’re from another planet And you’re crazy as a loon But it’s too cold down here on Earth To go up on the roof But I’ll feel a little less alone When I’m sitting in my room Writing songs about you Well I’ve been lying in this bed Trying once again to find my muse But if we’re only gonna die Or worse get middle aged Then what’s the use? Still I remember what you said How it’d be when you were dead and gone And you are and here I am Living proof that someone’s world had carried on And I know you’re from another planet And you’re crazy as a loon But it’s too cold down here on Earth To go up on the roof But I’ll feel a little less alone When I’m sitting in my room Writing songs about you

My girlfriend gets so depressed She never leaves the house She doesn’t even get dressed My girlfriend always leaves a mess She says she’s gonna to clean But she always forgets My girlfriend is there when I get home Watching movies on TV Or talking on the phone Sometimes I wanna leave But I’ve got nowhere to go But hey nobodies perfect No one wants to be alone My girlfriend is so unimpressed By everything I say You can see it in her face I don’t say much I just hope and pray There’s been some big mistake And buy her flowers just in case And I don’t mind it When she goes out with her friends And they drop her off drunk And I take her up to bed She’s say I’m sorry And I kiss her on the head And everything is fine Until the morning comes again I remember when we were in high school I took her to the dance We snuck out to the bleachers And I thought that I might take a chance But it never does any long-term good To go thinking about the past Goddamn this wandering mind of mine That can’t be happy with what it has But I’m not mad And sometimes we still laugh And when she’s just getting up And the sun hits her right She doesn’t even look half bad

Cigarette between her fingers And a drink in her hand She thought about the times When her looks were still in demand And wondered where the time had gone When did everything go wrong No more flowers at her door No more phone calls to wait up for And she just wanted to die But it was easier to cry Remembered fingers running through her hair as she wept Got up to fix another drink And cursed the memory she kept When Jack would ease her heavy heart And Jim would keep her from the dark Woke up in her clothes and she smiled And said romance was out of style She just wanted to die But it was easier to cry They’re just tears for the cause Tracks for the lost Betrayed by the heart Waiting for sorrow to dissolve But it’s so easy to cry

Melanie 04:38
Melanie looks a lot like Stephanie She looks a lot like Jane Who looks a lot like Amy Who looks a lot like Emily Melanie, I wonder what she’s telling me now How she’s twenty grand in dept Or someone famous that she slept with Or how everybody loves her Or what drugs she doesn’t take I don’t really know why I talk to her I guess cause she has big fat eyes And swallows awkward silences So you don’t even have to try Besides she never really talks to you She’s always looking across the room At someone who just came inside Melanie How the hell did she get to be The way that she is How could anyone ever say they really loved her I feel sorry for her unborn kids Melanie Looking so heavenly She’s nature’s great creation She better be She has no female friends And she’s not much for conversation Melanie Are you really as mentally as dead as you seem I want to rip you apart at the seams Just to know what’s inside But I’m afraid of what I’ll see I know I know I know I know She’ll be in the front row at the show She used to date someone in the band She drinks until she can hardly stand Some sucker holds her hand While she throws up in the van Melanie How the hell did she get to be The way that she is How could anyone ever say they really loved her I feel sorry for her unborn kids Melanie Looks a lot like Bethany She looks a lot like Tiffany She looks a lot like Natalie They ought to put you away Because you’re too good looking They ought to put you in chains Before you get your hooks in They ought to smack you around They ought to cut off your tongue They ought to shave off your eyebrows And send you to a nun They ought to get you a job Cause you have too much fun They ought to carve you in marble And sell you by the ton
