Lyrics

[Part 1 - "Loser" by Beck]
Soy un perdedor!
I'm a loser, baby!
So why dont you kill me?
Everybody!
Soy un perdedor!
I'm a loser, baby!
So why dont you kill me?
HEY!

[Part 2 - "Sex Type Thing" by Stone Temple Pilots]
I am, I am, I am
I said I wanna get next to you
I said I'm gonna get close to you
You wouldn't want me have to hurt you too
Hurt you too
I know you want what's on my mind
I know you like what's on my mind
I know it eats you up inside
I know, you know, you know, you know
Here I come, I come, I come, I come
Here I come, I come, I come, I come

[Part 3 - "All I Wanna Do" by Sheryl Crow]
'Cause all I wanna do is have some fun
I've got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
I've got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard

[Part 4 - "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails]
HELP ME! I broke apart my insides
HELP ME! I got no soul to sell
HELP ME! The only thing that works for me
Help me get away from myself
I wanna **** you like an animal
I wanna feel you from the inside
I wanna **** you like an animal
My whole existence is flawed
You get me closer to god
Hey! Hey! Hey!

[Part 5 -"Bang and Blame" by R.E.M.]
You bang, bang, bang, bang, bang
Blame, blame, blame
You bang, bang, bang, bang, bang
It's not my thing so let it go!

[Part 6 - "You Oughta Know" by Alanis Morissette]
'Cause that love that you gave that we made
Wasn't able to make it enough
For you to be open wide, no
And every time you speak her name
Does she know how you told me you'd hold me
Until you die, 'til you die
But you're still alive
And I'm here to remind you of the mess you left
When you went away
It's not fair to deny me of the cross I bare that you gave to me
You oughta know
HEY!

[Part 7 - "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" by Smashing Pumpkins]
Despite all my rage
I am still just a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage
I am still just a rat in a cage
And someone will say what is lost can never be saved
Despite all my rage
I am still just a rat in a cage

[Part 8 - "My Friends" by Red Hot Chili Peppers]
I love all of you
Hurt by the cold
So hard and lonely too
When you don't know yourself

[Part 9 - "I'll Stick Around" by Foo Fighters]
I don't owe you anything!
I don't owe you anything!
I don't owe you anything!
I don't owe you anything!

[Part 10 - "Black Hole Sun" by Soundgarden]
Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come, won't you come
Black hole sun, black hole sun
Won't you come
Black hole sun, black hole sun
Won't you come
Black hole sun, black hole sun

[Part 11 - "Basket Case" by Green Day]
Do you have the time
To listen to me whine
About nothing and everything all at once?
I am one of those melodramatic fools
Neurotic to the bone no doubt about it
Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps all adding up
I think I'm cracking up
And am I just Paranoid
Am I just stoned?
Or am I just stoned?
