Medicated 04:23
Verse 1 I didn't really want to see them I didn't really want to be them I didn't even have to hear them To know that I should fear them cuz I didn't really want to know I didn't really wanna believe them I can't even try to leave them I don't wanna have to enjoy them even though I might have to join them cuz I didn't really want to no! but I only know what I've been told! Chorus Oh it's over rated, oh I'm separated from Home, so complicated They're so ordinary, only temporary, we're all medicated you know?? Verse 2 How they know when I've been cryin Do they know when I've been lyin Are they watchin from the ceiling Would they know if I had bad feelings! Cuz I really really want to know But I only know is what I've been told! Chorus Bridge: We all know the place to go They won't know and can't follow We're under secret stars tonight They shine bright This brand new light Verse 3 I don't wanna have to fight them But I know I don't have to like them I don't wanna have to give in Still this is the place we live in cuz I didn't really want to no! But I only know is what I've been told Chorus
Verse 1 Been looking out as far as I can see and gone so long now they don't hear from me we take a beating but still standin ilke a tree No change in the plans, gotta give me one more chance now This is something that's been weighing down on me My hands are full with the things that I carry You can try but I don't give it up for free Gonna raise both hands up and take my stand now Chorus I don't want anybody talking to myself I don't want anyone in the whole world to help Verse 2 Can you hear the things I mutter in my sleep and have you heard that dude's a lyre and a creep? How dare they try and make a martyr outta me Gotta stake my claim got me feelin no pain NO! Got a feeling it's a very bad disease It's so hard to tell your friends from enemies So we don't get too close with everyone we meet Got me lookin both ways cuz I've numbered my days Chorus Bridge Everybody here is so confusing I'm only tryin to do what's right and what I'm doing here is so diluted I think I'll end this fight Chorus
Verse Got an A bomb Got this strong arm Honey take mine, hope it don't take long My head's on fire hot enough to make love Baby I'm not tired so we got to push and shove But I don't wanna stop fighting for the same song Chorus Oooohhhhh why act so Coooooool Verse 2 Break the bottle neck Let's make this painless I don't know anything but I think I'll take a guess It's really happening, put on your party dress I know we're far from home and it's always second best But stop your bitchin and don't act like such a princess Chorus Bridge This is the very last time I try to hide don't ask me why It makes me laugh so hard to know you're part of the big crime We are some bullshit starters with faces under water I don't care what you heard so don't tell me no lies Verse 3 Hear the sirens ring They don't mean anything A world suicide's always gonna be on your side It's not time to go I can't even get a ride You know the slope is steep so try hard not to slide and step back out from behind things that you try to hide this isn't a cassette, can't easily just rewind Chorus
I'm With You 02:53
Verse If you want me in your head and in your bed tonight I'll make sure you're back for more, at least 4000 times Chorus I don't wanna hurt no one Just because I know no one If you're high can you give me some? Because I am with you Verse 2 You'd be sorry if I left and you'd be left behind But that'd be so dumb why would I? We're super great combined Chorus Verse 3 Can we go on trips at sea and make believe we're rich We get along so famously cuz you're brainlessly a catch Chorus
Chorus There it Goes Again Everytime I close my eyes There it Goes Again Gonna Take you by surprise There it Goes Again I don't wanna make you cry, but there it goes again! Verse Everyday, Ever night, every minute it weighs on my mind with every word I think I buy some time i didn't really wanna be that guy It moves fast, way too fast, now I'm reelin and I can't keep up I feel trapped and now I can't speak up Now you're wondering lately what's been up Chorus Verse 2 This feeling in my head is so strong comin over me I wish I could explain so you could see I'm not the man that I'm supposed to be I'm afraid and I'm scared that I'll say things I don't mean to say I don't wanna be someone you'll hate I never said that I could pull your weight Chorus Bridge There it goes again!! Verse 3 Hearts can change separate ways, but we can say we tried It's too bad I nearly lost my mind I hope this hasn't been a waste of time
Saturdays 02:40
Verse Saturdays sleeping away It doesn't matter what the jail birds say They've seen it all, seen it all, oh oh oh…. Sometimes the sailboats sway down and out as they float away they've seen it all, seen it all, oh oh oh… Verse 2 Here and there I've heard you say Let's move on from this typical way We've seen it all, seen it all, oh oh oh Chorus Sometimes we may find a rival that makes it good for our survival Don't you think you'll be a while? So relax and try to smile Verse3 Blowing winds the seasons change and the tureen is often strange we've seen it all, seen it all, oh oh oh… Chorus 2 This has become so robotic You're pretty and I'm psychotic San Francisco's lost its charm and LA summers aren't so warm Verse 4 Mornings come, the children sing and they don't care what your girlfriend thinks she seen it all, seen it all, oh oh oh… Now and then my dreams awake and I can see what we always take I've seen it all, seen it all, oh oh oh….
S.O.S. 03:32
Verse I stay in bed all day, and got nothin much to say, and why do I sitll feel like I do? I'm losing tons of weight and got a beard I never shave cuz I wanna just be lying next to you I wanna just be lying next to you searching for distractions, I can't justify my actions I walk around so dazed and confused This feeling's getting old, so Let all my truths be told that I'd rather just be lying next to you yeah I'd rather just be lying next to you Pre She never laughs when I tell stories, or funny jokes Compared to you she's fucking boring, man that's how it goes Chorus I don't care about, how we'd fight and shout All I wanna know is what am I s'posed to do now Lose that new boyfriend, so I can lie next to you Verse 2 when you said it couldn't last, you got in that cab so fast I had nothing left that I could construe You left me there to hurt, and you kicked my face in dirt, But I still wanna just be lying next to you I still wanna just be lying next to you Pre I miss the dirty things you'd whisper closely in my ear my new girlfriend she hardly knows me and that's just what I fear Chorus Bridge and when I think of you I always start to cry and I just wish so bad to look you in the eyes, the eyes, the eyes.... Chorus
Out To Sea 03:55
Verse Lately I don't wanna fall for it. I can't seem to change my mind. Sometimes I find it hard to draw straight lines. Honestly, you can't tell me Sunday church bells keep me from my own hell. Looking off my window sill. The morning light comes. Do you think I'm dumb? Honestly, you can't fool me. Chorus From time to time I rest my head and dream two thousand dreams. I'll pack my bag and leave the key when it all floats out to sea. Verse 2 Turn this car around. I don't like the sound. Will you swear that you'll come see me. The clocks spin. We clock in. Honestly, you won't find me. Ladies and real men like to drink their gin and sing songs with the A-B-C's. The time's come. We'll have fun. Honestly, no. Seriously. Chorus 2 I'll use my legs. I'll use my arms. Just like that old Pretenders song. Don't you wonder who we'll be when it all, floats out to sea. Chorus 3 Sometimes these things go straight to my head and it sure don't come for free. Don't you wish that you were me when it all floats out to see.
747 04:36
Verse 1 My baby's flyin home red eye from Atlanta, GA I can't reach her on the telephone She's in the air on the wings of an aeroplane I try so hard not to cry and moan Chorus I'm in LOVE with that girl on the 747 I look up to the sky as she floats down from heaven Verse 2 Boeing jet, cargo plane, feels the wind in her hair it's just too bad that we're apart She's got her pilot's wings, sittin in the captain's chair now she's crop dustin my heart Chorus Verse 3 On time, perfect touchdown hit the runway soon she'll be in my hands She's the fairest chick waitin at the baggage claim and I can't wait to crash land Chorus


“All of these songs are masterfully crafted without appearing so. Brett and company made a record that is more akin to a skilled songwriter at the top of his craft instead of a musician's debut album.” - Raymon Thomson, thenextgreatband.com

“Boys School is a breath of fresh air in a world that seems to be ignorant of rock music of past ages, and they do a fine job of giving classic garage rock new life.” - Jackson Sinnenberg, WGTB, Georgetownradio.com
