Track Name: Girl In The Box
Woke up late,
Didn't wanna go outside.
Too many people so I guess I'll just hide.
Don't wanna quit,
But I'm sick of it.
I'll play the game but I'll keep it inside.

When no-one's there, I'll pull her out cause she's got looks that make me shout.

The girl in the box says you can put it on me,
Make up pretend that we're heavenly,
It's sad and lonely we'll be left by the road, so we make our own world.
And no-one will know.

Friends came round,
And hurt my esteem.
I said about her now they're laughing at me.
Got to get her, got to get me out.
Go Barbie pack your bags you're no longer my queen!
Track Name: Weezer Fan (At The Slayer Concert)
I got pulled into a circle pit, thought it was great at the time.
But I got lost, and couldn't find my friends.
I stood there feeling out of it, couldn't see it would end right.
The carpet pulled from underneath my feet.

Would there be an end to this?
Would somebody help me leave?
Cos I'm the only Weezer fan at the Slayer concert.

My head spun feeling out of it, drowning in a sea of black.
So I reached out, in want of going back.
Thousand heads screaming out at me,
I could only look at the floor.
I could not be, and headed to the door.

Would there be an end to this?
Will I ever find my peace?
Cause I'm the only Weezer fan at the Slayer concert.

Head spinning round feeling overwhelmed,
I couldn't see, I couldn't breathe.
Fallen down, and swallowed up.
I'm flooded and inept.
Track Name: What Happened?
Whatever happened to sticking together?
Whatever happened to trusting forever?
Whatever happened to the love, cos I don't know.

Does anyone sing to their one, with a song by their own words?
Does anyone long for their love whenever their name is heard?

Why is it so hard for them to understand?

Does anyone love their love like me?
And why do they burn bridges down?
Maybe they don't really want them, but I don't understand that at all.
Track Name: Sick Of You
I've been waiting for so very long.
Painful goodbyes on the telephone.
Lie down, dreaming, waking next to you.
But now, till then, don't know what to do.

I can't wait to be sick of you.

Eyes closed, fall down, I've been going crazy.
Will you come too? My minds far too hazy.
When this all is over, I keep telling you,
"It will all be alright in the end".

We'll move on, and make a home.
