Track Name: Teenage Scum
We spent the night driving past curfew
And listening to songs by Brand New
Pulled over by the cops for going way too fast
I want to be like Jimmy, I "gotta blast"

We're just teenage scum
They say we don't belong
We're always in trouble
Anything but subtle
We're just teenage scum
They say we don't belong
We're always in trouble
Anything but subtle

Today I went to the mall
I drove my friends, Connor and Paul
They were kicked out by security
Because they are teenage scum

We're just teenage scum
They say we don't belong
We're always in trouble
Anything but subtle
We're just teenage scum
They say we don't belong
We're always in trouble
Anything but subtle

Tattoos, pizza, stickers on my car
I washed all my clothes, don't know where they are
Cutting wood, driving far, I've got thirteen guitars
Playing shows, we're a joke
This is who we are

We're just teenage scum
They say we don't belong
We're always in trouble
Anything but subtle
We're just teenage scum
They say we don't belong
We're always in trouble
Anything but subtle

Anything but subtle
Track Name: High School Dropout
You got a 33 in Chemistry
Did you try to pass Math at all?
Yeah you're a high school dropout
Did you fall asleep in History?
In Gym, you dropped the ball
Yeah you're a high school dropout

You abused your bathroom breaks
You went and vaped in all the stalls
Ditching school was really cool
Your mom got all the calls
Now you made your final mistake
And you're staying late
You went and sealed your fate

You got a 33 in Chemistry
Did you try to pass Math at all?
Yeah you're a high school dropout
Did you fall asleep in History?
In Gym, you dropped the ball
Yeah you're a high school dropout

A college degree ain't meant for me
At least I'm getting laid

(You're a high school dropout, you're go nowhere)

Saturday, Saturday, Saturday detention!
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday detention!
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday detention!
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday detention!
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday detention!
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday detention!
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday detention!
Saturday, Saturday, Saturday detention!!!
Track Name: Community College
Community College!
Community College!
Community College!
Community College is the place for me!

Couldn't afford school in state
I couldn't pay the price for my own place
Now I'm stuck at home with mom and dad
I guess I'll go and make something of myself

I guess I'll go and make something of myself
I guess I'll go and make something of myself!

Community College!
Community College!
Community College!
Community College is the place for me!
Community College!
Community College!
Community College!
Community College is the place for me!

Parking sucks, teachers suck, food sucks
Parking sucks, teachers suck, food sucks
Parking sucks, teachers suck, food sucks
Parking sucks, teachers suck, food sucks

(No, but for real, parking really fucking sucks)

Community College!

HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!
HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY!

Classes are so dry
Man I wanna die
Beat me til I cry
Man this really sucks
I'm surrounded by sucks
I wish I'd given a fuck
In high school

I wish I'd given a fuck in high school
I wish I'd given a fuck in high school
I wish I'd given a fuck in high school
I wish I'd given a fuck in high school
I wish I'd given a fuck in high school
I wish I'd given a fuck in high school
I wish I'd given a fuck in high school
I wish I'd given a fuck in high school!

"So i show up to class two minutes late, and the teacher has the fucking nerve to mark me absent. What kind of fucking bullshit is that?I paid over two thousand dollars to be in this school. Don't mark me absent just for being late. It's ridiculous. It's bullshit. You know it. I know it. Everyone knows it, and don't even get me started on the people there, because nobody ever wants to talk to each other. It's the fucking worst. Like, what is so bad about having a social circle and getting along with each other and having friends? It's fucking bullshit and i hate it"

(No, but for real, the parking there really fucking sucks)
Track Name: Like What You See
I'm not a superhero, but I want to save you
From this dark path you're going down
You need to get yourself some help
You need to get your life together
Everything will be okay

When you look in the mirror
Do you like what you see
I know how this story goes
'Cuz it's about me
You've been battling these demons
For quite some time
It makes you feel crazy
Like you're out of your mind

I never felt like I belonged to anything
All I did was sit alone in my room
I thought about my end a lot and I thought about you
Leaves me wondering here what I should do

When you look in the mirror
Do you like what you see
I know how this story goes
'Cuz it's about me
You've been battling these demons
For quite some time
It makes you feel crazy
Like you're out of your mind

Things are gonna workout
It'll all be okay
Don't worry about the small things
You're better than this
Everything is gonna be okay
Everything is gonna be okay
Everything is gonna be okay
Everything is gonna be okay

AHHHHH
AHHHHHHH
AHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Someone help get through this nightmare!
Track Name: PKWY South (ft. Chris Singh)
There's something about the summer
That makes me feel alright
There's something about this weather
That makes everything ok
Makes me forget all the student loans I gotta pay
Forget all my worries and lay in the sun all day

I took the parkway south
(Took the parkway south)
Down the shore
(Down the shore)
Hot dogs grilling
Sand on my feet
I got my music blasting
What else do I need

I took the parkway south
(Took the parkway south)
Down the shore
(Down the shore)
Hot dogs grilling
Sand on my feet
I got my music blasting
What else do I need

I'm here on the beach with my girl Mary Anne
We're laying here all day in the sand
I got the radio blasting only the Ramones
Nothing will ever make me go home
Hell no hell no

I took the parkway south
(Took the parkway south)
Down the shore
(Down the shore)
Hot dogs grilling
Sand on my feet
I got my music blasting
What else do I need

I took the parkway south
