Track Name: Don't Be Yourself
I only wrote this song to get laid
because before I played punk no one paid attention to me
What’s the point of playing music if it’s not getting you chicks
And remember, the vaguer the lyrics the bigger the audience
And girls will love this song because I sound like exactly what they want
guys pretend to like this shit because they can play it for girls they want to sleep with

Your eyes are like stars or moon or running water or whatever
will get you my bed later
And baby I am at my best when you are with me
so let me get your number because I’m so interesting and deep!

I let my hair grow out and my clothes are gross as shit
but I am not a burnout I’m hip and vintage
And I just covered my body in really cool tattoos
now I’ll have a good paying job but at least I’m now I can sleep with you
On your bedroom floor I want to see my band’s t-shirt
and I’ll smile to myself because at the end of the day musicians are just fucking perverts!

If you wanna be an artist just don’t be too brutally honest
Because we all want to hear a love song even if its bullshit
And if you want the big gigs and too sleep with lots of women
all you gotta do is change your self image
So now when I look in the mirror I keep telling myself
