01. Earthsick

That is the name of the band, folks
Hoobustank!
Get over it
I did

Rotate your point of view
Concrete surrounds you
It used to be a field where we all played
Suspend your disbelief
This world became a thief
To the beautiful things that flourished in your day
That's why I say

Stop, stop the world I said
Stop, stop, stop the world
Because I want to get off
Want to get off
Want to get off
It's making me earthsick
Substitute what is now for what had used to be
Old or new, everybody's got to pick
It's making me earthsick

My head keeps spinning
Progress is winning
I don't recognize the place where I grew up
This is no fantasy
The ground beneath your feet
Will soon be a store with things that you don't need
That's why I plead

Stop, stop the world I said
Stop, stop, stop the world
Because I want to get off
Want to get off
Want to get off
It's making me earthsick
Substitute what is now for what had used to be
Old or new, everybody's got to pick
It's making me earthsick

Stop, stop the world I said
Stop, stop, stop the world
Because I want to get off
Want to get off
Want to get off
It's making me earthsick

Rotate your point of view
Concrete surrounds you
It used to be a field where we all played
That's why I say

Substitute what is now for what had used to be
Old or new, everybody's got to pick
It's making me earthsick

Substitute what is now for what had used to be
Old or new, everybody's got to pick
It's making me earthsick

2. Foot In Your Mouth

I recognize that typical, cynical smile you wear on the front row
I can hear you telling everyone about the other show
You're the one with all of the friends
But none are real cause you're a hypocrite
Just remember that you did it yourself and you wonder how

Just don't stick your foot in your mouth
Never thought before you spoke
You tell me what I want to hear
Turn around and tell another
Who you think you know

Did you really think it wouldn't get back to me
Fabrications that you spun so well
Always ready with a tabloid story to tell
So don't complain to me
Shut your mouth and go quietly
Cause it didn't have to be like this and you wonder how

Just don't stick your foot in your mouth
Didn't have to be this way
You tell me what I want to hear
Turn around and tell another
Who you think you know
But no one cares what you wanna say
Don't bug me or any other
Shut your mouth and go

How can you live with yourself
Knowing all the lies that you tell
How can you live with yourself

I know what you want and what you'll do
To get your foot in the door or to just break through
But you're never gonna get to where you want right now

Cause you stick your foot in your mouth
All you have to do is change
You tell me what I want to hear
Turn around and tell another
Who you think you know
But no one cares what you wanna say
Don't bug me or any other
Just shut your mouth and go

3. Karma Patrol

Stolen a bike, take it for a ride
Commit a crime, thought you got away
Pick on a kid, only half the size
Karma patrol, gonna set it straight

Who's to say why I'm coming or going?
They're the ones who call the shots
And endless search for those who've not
Paid for their delinquent way
Cause personal catastrophes

There's a saying
A little better one than the previous
When you're mischievous
You'll get what you deserve
And it's a beautiful thing
All the liquid coming out the gutter cause

What's done is done
I can't change the past
Karma patrol is gonna get me

Something happened just the other day
You helped another from another
But there's nothing coming back your way
Nobody said that life was fair
So lift your head and understand

That doing good is fine
But don't expect to find your plate full
Because the karma patrol is blind to the fact
Except that no one's perfect all the time

What's done is done
I can't change the past
Karma patrol is gonna get me last

What's done is done
I can't change the past
Karma patrol is gonna get me last

Raining down, walking home
When they come, you will know
All looks good, mind your way
Now you're going to pay
Better watch your back cause

They've got a target on you
No matter what you do
And the water will come down
So jump to the side
Or you'll get soaked straight through
To the bone
That's what they've shown
They have no preference for the good or the evil
But I just know one day
They'll be coming my way

What's done is done
I can't change the past
Karma patrol is gonna get me last

What's done is done
I can't change the past
Karma patrol is gonna get me

Commit a crime, thought you got away
Karma patrol

4. Stuck Without a Voice

In just a minute, there's something here that was not here before
I'm clear-headed but confused
Because I thought that it would help me choose between
What I want and what I should
But I always end up playing the game

I don't want that feeling inside of me
To get stuck without a voice
Cause then I have no choice

And I wonder is she the answer
To the feeling that's trapped inside of me
Can I touch her, why should I bother
When all is said and done
Is she the one to answer my question

And so I’m forced to ponder, the waiting's getting longer
The feeling eats at me, intensity increases until I
Am bound to what they say
I will not play this game

I don't want that feeling inside of me
To get stuck without a voice
Cause then I have no choice

And I wonder is she the answer
To the feeling that's trapped inside of me
Can I touch her, why should I bother
When all is said and done
Is she the one to answer my question

And I wonder is she the answer
To the feeling that's trapped inside of me
Can I touch her, why should I bother
When all is said and done
Is she the one to answer my question

5. Can I Buy You a Drink?

Once two individuals walked in a room
One looked at the other but he doesn't know what to do
He'd better figure out his plan so
If he succeeds, he'll get what he needs
So he builds up the nerve to go
And talk to the girl that he's been burning for
And he says, with a slightly boyish grin
I know that this sounds weird, but you've just got to hear

I've got this fantasy, just between you and me
Where we could spend the night and all of the day
Doing all the things I just can't say
And in my fantasy, your kiss is heavenly
So I try to figure out any possible way
To make my fantasy come true one day

She politely denies his invitation
Just then another one hits the floor
One down and one to go
This time he must be smooth, or he'll be pulling root
So he says please
Can I just buy you a drink and I’ll show you
That I’ll do anything for one kiss
But before let me tell you this

I've got this fantasy, just between you and me
Where we could spend the night and all of the day
Doing all the things I just can't say
And in my fantasy, your kiss is heavenly
So I try to figure out any possible way
To make my fantasy come true one day

Come true one day
Come true one day
Come true one day

I've got this fantasy, just between you and me
Where we could spend the night and all of the day
Doing all the things I just can't say
And in my fantasy, your kiss is heavenly
So I try to figure out any possible way
To make my fantasy come true one day

Come true one day
Come true one day
True one day
Come true one day

Hoobustank!
That sounds like, like, Siegfried and Roy's Czechoslovakian cousin, you know?
Siegfried and Roy would make the tigers appear
And then Hoobustank would come out and juggle

6. Naked Jock Man

Me and my friends kickin' in the household
Tryin' to figure out thoughts start to unfold
Nothing to do or see I can't understand
Combine all our thoughts to come up with a plan
Car alarm system too expensive to buy
But not if you're gonna hire that guy
With a helmet on his head and a club in his hand
Cock in sock, it's the naked jock man

Naked, naked, naked, jock
Naked, naked, naked, man
Naked, naked, naked, jock
Naked, naked, naked

Tall dark man going to break into my car
With naked jock man he ain't gonna get far
Car alarm sounds, trunk lifts up
He jumps to the ground
What the fuck's that?
I can hear him scream in fright
Naked jock man just ruined his night
You can run, you can hide, just turn yourself in
Cause he'll get you in the end

Naked, naked, naked, jock
Naked, naked, naked, man
Naked, naked, naked, jock
Naked, naked, naked

He's the naked jock man
And he's after Dan
Naked jock man
R-y-a-n

Now months have passed since the birth of the jock man
Sally Jesse Raphael and David Letterman
Want the jock man to show his face
He's the next bitch on Melrose Place
Naked jock man was just a big joke
Now you'll see his ass on all the talk shows
The people want to know
They're willing to die
Who the fuck is that guy?

Naked, naked, naked, jock
Naked, naked, naked, man
Naked, naked, naked, jock
Naked, naked, naked

7. Our Song

For some reason we've had the same dreams and acted on our own
Now look where we are
And the times when we don't get along have only made us strong
I know we all will say that it was worth the pain

When we'll all be gathered around
Knowing the love we gave's not a waste
You know they will know it's true
And when the day when we'll all be gathered around comes
And I know it's not far away I hope
We will know

And still today I wonder how it all became like this
As if drawn by unseen force
We arrived in one specific place, for all our dreams to chase
And though we did not show, I think we all did know

When we'll all be gathered around
Knowing the love we gave's not a waste
You know they will know it's true
And when the day when we'll all be gathered around comes
And I know it's not far away I hope
We will know

When things got rough, we still found a way
Now our time is today

When we'll all be gathered around
Knowing the love we gave's not a waste
You know they will know it's true
And when the day when we'll all be gathered around comes
And I know it's not far away I hope
We will know

When things got rough, we still found a way

8. The Mirror

Is it shame?
Is it greed?
Is it something that I need?
To make me feel so strong to the other ones
Is it real?
Is it true?
All the trouble I go through
Is it just a way, to show
(trying so hard, but still I get nothing)

That I don't have the strength to show
But the mirror will always know
I've got to let go

Is it them?
Is it me?
I'm just too occupied to see
Afraid to look within to the real one
Can it be that I am scared
To share a part I’ve never shared?
Or is it just a way, to show
(trying so hard, but still I get nothing)

That I don't have the strength to show
But the mirror will always know
I've got to let go

You won't get inside my head 'cause I won't let you go
To see that I’m crying out for you to
Know what I want to say
I've got to let you know
That I want to say
I've just got to tell you

That I don't have the strength to show
But the mirror will always know
I've got to let go

9. Educated Fool

As I roll over in my bed, the same old thoughts run through my head
What are you getting up for
I look outside, the night still rules, an incarcerated fool
And my prison cell is school
'Cause I'm the educated fool

So I open the door to my new day, bad thoughts should go away
But the morning is so gray
How am I supposed to understand a word they're going to say?
My mind's just not awake
Today's the day I break away from this life of monotony

And I arrive and kick my way to class, sit down
Head down on the fake wood
Instructor starts to speak about the time when man was ape
And though I’m trying really hard, my mind won't cooperate
It tells me where I should be, in the sun where life is carefree

That's when I say, can I just go away and learn some other day?
'Cause I can't live by the rules established by the school
An educated fool

People always say to me, go to school so you can be
Listen hard and fill your mind's potential, or lack there of
But sometimes I’m not in class just 'cause that I will not pass
He walks around and stops at me, my letter comes after "E"

That's when I say, can I just go away and learn some other day?
'Cause I can't live by the rules established by the school
An educated fool

Fool

A, D, doesn't matter much to me
A, D, doesn't say shit about me
A, D, doesn't matter much to me
Cause A or D is not me

'Cause I can't live by the rules established by the school
An educated fool

A or D is not me
No it ain't
'Cause A or D is not me

10. The Dance That Broke My Jaw

Hey man, I saw you standing there (yeah, yeah yeah)
You were bobbing your head to the beat as your fists start to clinch
Oh so tight
"no fear" in your eyes, and also on your shirt (and hat and pants)
It's your turn to show tonight, do your best to start a fight
Show us all that you can dance with your elbows and your hands
(dancing with friends, keeping the peace, if you didn't know I’m being sarcastic)

When you feel the crowd start to move
Please try to resist the urge that you get
Try not to get upset and sock your neighbor right in the face
I know that coach meant well
But what's a dance to you is a fight to someone else
Keep your anger aside, kick back, enjoy the ride
And think how it could be if you showed some courtesy
(Your hostility, it grows so easily)

You're the next victim of the dance that broke my jaw
Please don't get near
You're the next victim of the dance that broke my jaw
Have some more beer, "no fear gear" is what you wear

Just because the music begins
Does not always mean a wrestling scene from the WWF
Breaks out right to my left
And I got a ringside ticket
I'll challenge you or anyone anywhere
Sometimes I just want the football thrown in
Let the football game begin
And then say to myself as I think of someone else
That's not what we came here for, and we'll take no more

What's going through your head?
To the point that someone is dead
Keep it up and you're out of here, you're out of here
And when you're outside by yourself and sitting all alone
Keep your head down
'Cause we're the ones that warned you

You're the next victim of the dance that broke my jaw
Please don't get near
You're the next victim of the dance that broke my jaw
Can't we just be friends in here?
Go drink some more beer
Kick your neighbor's rear
An elbow to my ear
Can't we just be friends in here?

I was dancing by myself, and bothering no one else
When suddenly I was encountered by the beast
I ask so politely, "Please just let me be"
But the next thing I remember, I’m staring at the ceiling
Someone please, help me call security
I'm on my feet, but now I’m on the floor
That shithead doesn't show respect to me or to you
So now he's out the door
Now he's out the door
Not gonna hurt us anymore
That dance floor is free of hostility
And I’m so glad he's gone
It's our turn to have fun
My message was clear, "We're all friends in here"
But we're not allowed to do the dance that broke my
Dance that broke my
Dance that broke my jaw
