When You Talk to Yourself...Let The Eels Do The Talking

"I've Been Kicked Around"
Well i've been kicked around/Whatd'ya see/Am i alright/I'm alright/Well i've been kicked around/Whatd'ya see/Am i alright/I'm alright/I once had a heart/I was ripped from it/Chewed up then spat out/Like a cherry pit/And if i seem a little hard/It's just that i've been kicked around/I don't know how i got this far/The way that i've been kicked around/Well i've been kicked around/Whatd'ya see/Am i alright/I'm alright/Well i've been kicked around/Whatd'ya see/Am i alright/I'm alright/I once had a soul/It was torn from me/I won't cry a tear/I will carry me/And if i seem a little hard/It's just that i've been kicked around/I don't know how i got this far/The way that i've been kicked around/Don't worry/I'm alright

"Fitting In With The Misfit"
Dear ma/You might find it hard to believe/But i think i finally found a home/The weather's lovely/There's so much to see/And people who know what i know/Now i've got friends that do want me/And take me as i am/Now i've got friends that do love me/I'm alright with them/Fitting in with the misfits/Living in the lost and found/And i will never be afraid/For lost souls/Don't know where/They're bound/Dear ma/I know this is hard for you too/But some things are better off said/I've always found it so hard to adjust/I'd rather stay in bed/Now i've got friends that do want me/And take me as i am/Now I've got friends that do love me/I'm alright with them/Fitting in with the misfits/Living in the lost and found/And i will never be afraid/For lost souls/Don't know where/They're bound

"Permanent Broken Heart"
I walked by your window/To see if you're home/The candle was burning/I could see you weren't alone/I shouldn't have gone by/But what could i do/I've never known anyone/Who was quite like you/Life ain't very easy when you've got/A permanent broken heart/I walk down the dirty street/And see the old man/But now he seems different/I think i understand/Well maybe he had a love/And swore it was true/But then he blew it away/Just like i lost you/Life ain't very easy when you've got/A permanent broken heart/I'm looking out my window/There's not much of a view/And my hat is still quite blue/Maybe i'll move away/To some other town/And maybe I'll find that thing/I've never found

"My Descent Into Madness"
Springfield's looking pretty dusty today/I see their dreams coming undone/The view from inside ward nine affords this much/A town teeming with the unloved/Close the window and lock it so it's good and tight/La la la la la la la la la la la la la/Turning eighteen and trying not to look too lost/Have a not so nice day/The jacket makes me straight so i can just sit back and bake/You know i think i'm gonna stay/Talking very loud but no one hears a word i say/La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la/Come visit me tonight at eight o'clock/And then you'll see how i am not the crazy one/Voices tell me i'm the shit/Twenty days go by and every day looks the same/La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la/I'm the shit

"The Medication Is Wearing Off"
See this watch she gave me?/Well it still ticks away/The days i'm claiming back for me/The medication's wearing off/Gonna hurt not a little, a lot/Keep on tickin' you're not lickin' me/Step on a crack break your mother's heart/Red light green light black/Suicide e-mail do not delete/Plug it back in the jack/Start to be what they want you to be/And you see yourself as they see you/Sunrise on the corner of/Sunset and alvarado/I think what the hell do I do now/Watch the day disintegrate/So i can stay up late and wait/See this watch she gave me?/Well it still ticks away

"Somebody Loves You"
Woke up with a bang/And a bug on your face/It crawled in your mouth/And gave you a taste of
The good life you left behind/But i think you're gonna be fine/Somebody loves you/And you're gonna make it through/This nagging malaise/Is more than a phase/It feels like a job/But no boss ever pays you to lay there/And think how you'll die/While the tears start to well in your eyes/Somebody loves you /And you're gonna make it through/One more saturday/All alone through the night/You've got to be sure/When you turn out that light/That it's going to turn on again/You've got to be your good friend/Somebody loves you/And you're gonna make it through

"I'm Going To Stop Pretending That I Didn't Break Your Heart"
I'm gonna tell you what you need to hear/And i'm a little too late/By three or four years/And it may not make much sense/Now that we are apart/But i'm going to stop pretending/That i didn't break your heart/You see i never thought enough of myself/To realize that losing me could mean/Something like the tears in your eyes/And i want to tell you i'm sorry/And it's too late to start/But i'm going to stop pretending/That i didn't break your heart/And it's christmas eve/Years down the line/Sitting here wishing i'd treated you better/When you were mine/And i have no way of knowing where you are/But i'm going to stop pretending/That i didn't break your heart/I didn't mean to hurt you/I didn't know what i was doing/But i know what i have done

"I Need Some Sleep"
I need some sleep/It can't go on like this/I tried counting sheep/But there's one I always miss/Everyone says I'm getting down too low/Everyone says you just gotta let it go/You just gotta let it go/You just gotta let it go/I need some sleep/Time to put the old horse down/I'm in too deep/And the wheels keep spinning 'round/Everyone says I'm getting' down too low/Everyone says you just gotta let it go/You just gotta let it go/You just gotta let it go/You just gotta let it go

Who are the Eels? Do they talk to you? Is there really any space for more "friends" in that ol' brain o' yours? :)
