What the hell do you know you say as you turn your face right back to me,
What the hell do you know you say like some righteous man better than me.

Well I'm down,
And you're killing me,
And I'm down but still you mean nothing to me.

What the hell do you know you say as you try to shrink me to your side,
What the hell do you know you say you judge 'cause you're too scared to try.

Well I'm down,
And you're killing me,
And I'm down but still you mean nothing to me.

Here we go,
Singing the same song,
you've heard a thousand times,
You think you know the answers,
Yet you won't try it,
and you deny it,
It's the same damn song you've heard a thousand times.

Cause I'm down and you're killing me,
And I'm down and you're killing me,
Well I'm down,
Yeah I'm down.

What the hell do you know you say well I think I know way more than you,
What the hell do you know you say'cause I know to myself I am true.

Well I'm down,
And you're killing me,
And I'm down,
and you're killing me,
When you're down,
Well I'll walk away,
When you're down,
You'll still mean ****o to me,
Yeah,
Nothing to me.

I can't be happy without you
You can't be happy without me
Still you always want to pick a fight now
You say it's written in the stars
Some psychic read it in my cards
Still you always want to pick a fight with me

You say that I'm the only one
The one you're looking for
Try and keep a straight face when you laugh
You talk to me like I'm a saint
But all your friends just say
We have been so over for some time

And I know that you had the best intentions for me
I know that what you're saying is goodbye

I can't be happy without you
You can't be happy without me
Still you always want to pick a fight now
You say it's written in the stars
Some psychic read it in my cards
Still you always want to pick a fight with me

You say you changed your mind again
You don't know how you feel
Give me some more time is what you say
You want to use me like a toy
That you get bored with
Now you want to store me far away

And I know that you had the best intentions for me
I know that what you're saying is goodbye...goodbye

I can't be happy without you
You can't be happy without me
Still you always want to pick a fight now
You say it's written in the stars
Some psychic read it in my cards
Still you always want to pick a fight with me

I can't be happy without you
I can't be happy without me
Still you always want to pick a fight with me
I can't be happy without you
I can't be happy without me
Still you always want to pick a fight with me

You always say what you don't mean
You always say the things that hurt me
Why do you pick a fight with me?
You always say what you don't mean
You always say the things that hurt me
Why do you pick a fight
Why do you pick a fight
You always pick a fight with me

additional producer: John Feldmann
At the end of the day i do just what i want
At the end of the day i play just when i want
At the end of the day i do just what i want
At the end of the day i play just when i want

Go

Who the **** are you to say
What I can or cannot do?
You talk **** about me constantly
With your weakless metal crew.

Spreading lies about me, cry about me
Like it's your god given task
If you spent more time thinking about me
I'd have your head right up my ***

But at the end of the day I do just what I want
At the end of the day I play just when I want
You still need your mom to pay the rent

You call me a fake
You're giving me some punk rock test
You say how you could do so much better than me
But all you do is meth.

And at the end of the day I do just what I want
At the end of the day I play just when I want
You still need your mom to pay the rent

Try do define what my music should be
Like you're an authority
I have my own teachers and I don't need your help

No matter what you say, no matter what I play
If I want to play guitar

That's alright with me
I don't care if it's not alright with you
'Cause it's alright with me
I don't care if it's not alright with you
'Cause it's alright with me
I don't care if it's not alright with you
'Cause it's alright with me
I don't give a **** if it's not OK
It's alright with me
I don't care if it's not alright with you
'Cause it's alright with me

Really, it's just music, after all

Well after all I'm telling you don't waste your time I will be home soon

Counting the Days

length: 3:30
producer: John Feldmann and Jay Rifkin
engineer: Mark Dearnley and John Feldmann
So here I go and there you went, again
Just another stupid thing that I done wrong.
Locked up in my head, knocked down, beaten, left for dead
With all those brilliant things I should have said.
I gotta get away, and find something to do
'Cause everything I hear, everything I see, reminds me of you.

Still counting the days I've been without you 1, 2, 3, 4
Still counting the days that you've been gone.
Day one, was no fun.
Day two, I hated you.
By day three I wish you'd come right back to me.
Day four, five and six, well I guess you just don't give a ****.
Day seven, this is hell. this is hell.
I gotta get away, and find something to do.
But everything I hear, everything I see, reminds me of you.

Still counting the days I've been without you 1, 2, 3, 4
Still counting the days that you've been gone.
Still counting the days since you left me. 1, 2, 3 ,4
Still counting the days since you've been gone.

A thousand things I want to say to you, but its too late now.
A thousand things I want to say
A thousand things I want to say to you, but its too late now.
A thousand things I want to say

Still counting the days I've been without you.
Still counting the days that you've been gone.
Still counting the days I've been without you 1, 2, 3, 4
Still counting the days that you've been gone.
Still counting the days since you left me 1, 2, 3, 4
Still counting the days that you've been gone.

You Think It's a Joke

additional producer: John Feldmann
You thinks it's a joke, I find no reason,
Why I should laugh at you.
You think its a joke to take advantage
Of the life that supports you.

Push and push. suppress the weaker ones
You find two words, with emotions you are numb.
You think the world revolves around the things you buy.
I think of loneliness that you will die.

I want to defend defenseless, let the meek inherit the earth.
And your intelligence give you nothing to mask your ignorance.
If there's a God above to judge what's right and wrong.
Your careless attitude will soon be gone.

You thinks its a joke, I find no reason,
Why i should laugh at you.

I think of loneliness that you will die. you will

You thinks its a joke, I find no reason,
Why I should laugh at you.

Of the life that supports you.

Cause I find no reason.

lyricist: Carlo Karges
You and I in a little toy shop
Buy a bag of balloons with the money we´ve got
Set them free at the break of dawn
Till one by one they were gone
Back at base, sparks in the software
Flash the message â??somethings out thereâ??
Floating in the summer sky
Ninety nine red balloons go by

Ninety nine red balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, its red alert
There´s something here from somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
And focusing it on the sky
The ninety nine red balloons go by

Ninety nine decisions treat
Ninety nine ministers meet
To worry, worry, super scurry
Call the troops out in a hurry
This is what we've waited for
This is it boys, this is war
The President is on the line
As ninety nine red balloons go by

Ninety nine knights of the air
Ride super high-tech jet fighters
Everyone's a super hero
Everyone's a Captain Kirk
With orders to identify
To clarify and classify
Scrambling the summer sky
Ninety nine red balloons go by

As ninety nine red balloons go by

Ninety nine dreams I have had
In every one a red balloon
It's all over and I'm standing pretty
In this dust that was a city
If could find a souvenir
Just the prove the world was here
And here is a red balloon
I think of you and let it go
