The lyrics of SUBURBAN FLU.

Residential Street
I'm bleeding through these cement veins with every pump of every day. Age takes away all the urgency. Hair turns grey as concrete faces start to deplete, cracking away. Like so many of these streets I see. No longer clinging on, I've rolled out of the nest. Let go and let's move on. Hey let's put an end to restlessness. Now I think that I'm weened off all of my dreams. Imploding and washed away in gutters through these residential streets. Now I think I'm weened.

Winterstorms
Black and white pictures of the icy river, to think that I need pictures to remind me of winterstorm schooldays. Six int he morning, a news flash says that we have got no class. Frozen over rural routes, relief in white blankets. If you got a picture in your mind of that place you'd like to find. Well lets go, no destination, we'll try to keep this car on the road. And the snow has crippled this town. It covers our tire tracks so we can;t be found.

Hold That Thought
I'll hold that thought for a minute, while you are changing the subject, I am just another object, In orbit now, around your plot...and I continue to hold these thoughts for you...there's not much behind those beautiful eyes, but maybe just enough to keep me occupied. And I'm reaching all time lows. Thanks to you it's taking it's toll. I continue to hold these thoughts. I can't seem to escape your plot.

Puddles
Like caffiene to my brain, when I wake up to the rain maked the day go better don't you agree, that means less faces I'm gonna see see. Ahy am I so irate and when did I become so sedate, when did stale air comfort my lungs i'm hearing a tune that will always be unsung. I'm hearing a tune that'll be unsung. I just don't know quite how to say it. The things I do seem so outdated, bad attitudes are overplayed. There were no words on your welcome mat, I just came over, I didn't ask. I think my welcomes been outstayed. Send an electric current through the puddle I'm standing in today.

Wake Up
I must have slept the wrong way cause I can't feel my arm. I'ts tingling heavy footsteps, sleepy eyes, sun shines in through the blinds. It won't leave me be... And I know I dreamt bad things but I have trouble remembering and I know I've dreamt bad things but I'm missing a few frames. And all that I can recall is the part I wish I couldn't remember at all. Your words still cut like bullets through me. Even when I sleep. The feeling in my arm is starting to come back...I hope you never do.

Bored Outta My Mind click here to listen
Head is spinning around tonite, I'm staring at the walls again, phone never seems to ring, Just the ringing in my ears. I've turned the television off, I wanna turn off my brain. The walls are closing in on me. I wanna unplug my brain. I'm bored outta my mind tonite, I'm so bored outta my mind tonite. I'm bored outta my mind tonite, I'm so bored outta my mind tonite.The room is spinning around tonite, i'm face down on the floor again, phone never seems to ring just the ringing in my ears. I've turned the television off, I wanna turn off my brain. The walls are closing in on me. I wanna unplug my brain. I'm bored outta my mind tonite, I'm so bored outta my mind tonite. I'm bored outta my mind tonite, I'm so bored outta my mind tonite. I'm bored outta my mind tonite, I'm so bored outta my mind tonite. I'm Bored outta my mind.

Stupid Crush
Now maybe I didn't know you. I guess you just didn't want me to. Now maybe I'm better off this way, If I just walked away, GO! You helped me figure out why they call it a crush. And now come to find out I had a stupid crush on you. Had a stupid crush on you. I had a stupid crush on you. I had a stupid crush on you. I had a stupid crush on you. I'm not to the point where I know that nothing's fair. These things just work on TV, they could never happen to me. You helped me figure out why they call it a crush. And now come to find out I had a stupid crush on you. Had a stupid crush on you. I had a stupid crush on you. I had a stupid crush on you. I had a stupid crush on you. Now maybe I didn't know you. I guess you just didn't want me to. Now maybe I'm better off this way, If I just walked away.

In My Dreams
And if I told you just how I really felt. That when I see you my heart begins to melt. And that I get all retarded when you're around. My tongue is tied I cannot make a sound. But you'll never understand, so I'll see you in my dreams. And then we'll share a moment, I'll see you in my dreams, I'll see you in my dreams. See you in my dreams. See you in my dreams. See you in my dreams. See you in my dreams. And if I told you just how I really felt. That when I see you my heart begins to melt. And that I get all retarded when you're around.

See you in my dreams. See you in my dreams. See you in my dreams. See you in my dreams.

I'm Not Like You
I don't wanna live by your rules, don't wanna plan out my life, just wanna waste all my time. Don't expect all that from me. already what I wanna be, a loser a dropout, that's me. Cause I'm gonna do, what I wanna do. I'm gonna say, what I wanna say. And guess what, here's another thing, I'm not like you anyway, anyway. I'm not like you anyway. I'm not like you anyway. I'm not like you anyway. I'm not like you anyway. I don't wanna live by your rules, don't wanna plan out my life, just wanna waste all my time.

And guess what, here's another thing, I'm not like you anyway, anyway. I'm not like you anyway. I'm not like you anyway. I'm not like you anyway. I'm not like you anyway. I'm not like you.

Standing Apart
Never had any real direction. Going my own way was a social infection. Never jumped on all the trends. Only had a few really good friends. Never abandoned what I believed in and now I know I'll never start. It's not always fun, standing apart. It's not always fun. It's not always fun. It's not always fun. It's not always fun. Standing apart. Recess time I stood against the wall. I didn't want to play their games at all. Might have grown up with a few screws loose in my head. Glad I never listened to what they said. Never abandoned what I believed in and now I know I'll never start. It's not always fun, standing apart. It's not always fun. It's not always fun. It's not always fun. It's not always fun. Standing apart. Never abandoned what I believed in and now I know I'll never start. It's not always fun, standing apart. It's not always fun. It's not always fun. It's not always fun. It's not always fun. Standing apart.

Say It Will
You can only pretend for so long that nothing's wrong, but I just can't make believe anymore. Everything's disturbing but I've just learned to ignore, but I just can't block it out anymore. I wanna know it's safe to go outside. I wanna know it's safe in you to confide. I wanna know there's nothing under my bed. I wanna know there's nothing wrong with my head. and I don't want another broken heart. And I don't wanna go back to the start. And I don't want another boring day. I just want it all to be o.k. Please say it will be o.k. Please say it will. Say it will. You can only pretend for so long that nothing's wrong, but I just can't make nelieve anymore.

I just need some time, to try and unwind, what else can I say? It's been a long day. Please excuse the mess. I'm doing my best. It's all I can do, to keep myself from coming unglued. You don't really have a clue. I don't know what to say to you. It's not you it's me. Always been this way. Best thing you can do is just go away. Laying awake in bed. Rewind what I've said. I can't end my day. Fucked up dreams keep me awake.

I just canít take it. I bounce off the walls. I take my pills. And I take no calls. Iím on the edge and contemplating. A handful of pills and I stop debating.

I Wish...
Mixing alcohol and the thought of you, always equals the wrong thing to do. Nights like tonight can seem so right. Staring out, youíre in my sight. The muddy river that flows in between these two states is the only thing that separates you and me. The lights of your town is all I can see. Who gives a fuck, has always been my motto, I hope I find the answer in the next bottle. I take this one and throw it in the air. It breaks along the rocks, along with my cares. Clouded thought and blurry vision only amplifies my wishing. I wish you were here tonight.

Sore Loser
Itís a game I never win: she says she wants to be friends, and Iím a sore loser in the end. Now I hate the fucking world cause of a stupid girl, and I feel like I could hurl. You took me for a ride, you made me sick, I donít know why I always fall for this? I should have learned by now, for me itís nothing new. Please excuse me now I think Iím gonna puke. I feel like Iím gonna puke all because of you.
