I'm a pretty funny guy but I'm not hilarious I dont make a lot of sense but Im not mystarious and somtimes I just stare... I just stare at the wall And I can get real sad you know but not depressed And they get me down but Im not oppressed And sometimes I just press... I just press my head against the wall.. Same one that I stare at actually But Im a real nice guy I mean I treat people right I brush my teeth I say my prayers at night I'd say nobody really hates me... All that much... Or like me either But you know I got some buddies, I got some friends, I got the poker night thing but, well there's no one I'd take to the end, no one like you Francine Every time that you're near me, every time that you're near me, every time that you're near me I'm someone else... It's fun You make a better door then a window Thats what my granmda said, so simple and you know ever since that day I feel guilty for standing up I mean, even a couch has got a function you know sometimes I wish I was a couch or something with a function you know something to get some use... well I mean so people could sit down Every time that you're near me, every time that you're near me, every time that you're near me I'm someone else... It's fun I would cry, I would cry, if I could... if I could... Every time that you're near me, every time that you're near me, every time that you're near me I'm someone else... It's fun

The tooth brush holder's only got one brush and the tattoo I got I had to get retouched and I even cleaned the bathroom... Which is so rare I tried to erase you, throw away every hair I wish we were beginning it, not ending it, but beginning it I wish we were beginning it, not ending it, but beginning it I wish we were beginning it, not ending it, but beginning it... It'd be a happier thing to do Now all your things are piled up in my room my room feels so bare I can't help but think of you I can smell you on my bed... Your hint of perfume My roommate flushed the toilet last night I thought it was you I SWEAR IT WAS YOU!... (but you never did come back to bed) I wish we were beginning it, not ending it, but beginning it I wish we were beginning it, not ending it, but beginning it I wish we were beginning it, not ending it, but beginning it... It'd be a happier thing to do And the happiest memories are the saddest now, the happiest memories are the saddest now, the happiest memories are the saddest... What on earth am I gonna do? (X2) I wish we were beginning it, not ending it, but beginning it I wish we were beginning it, not ending it, but beginning it I wish we were beginning it, not ending it, but beginning it... It'd be a happier thing to do It'd be a happier thing to do It'd be a happier thing to do!

Life 04:02
Hay is for the horses/ And Mr Ed when he says hi The fever and the cattle/ And haunted wagon rides Fun is for Chucky Cheese/ Cindy Lauper and freaks Winning the lottery/ Unlimited cookies But we all know that the sunshine shines for flowers And the haters say that the flowers are for cowards but life is for you and me darlin' Yeah life is for you and me darlin' Cool is for James Dean/ Rock and roll and the north pole Smokin' cigarettes and wearin' jeans with holes Dreams are for little league/ Bed time and getting high Martin Luther King/ The apple of my eye But we all know that the sunshine shines for flowers And the haters say that the flowers are for cowards but life is for you and me darlin' Yeah life is for you and me darlin' Space is for spacing out/ Feng Shui and Chi Aliens and Einsten/ And romantic philosophies Stars are for the big screen/ Shining up above the sea Stars are what I see/ When you're gazing back at me But we all know that the sunshine shines for flowers And the haters say that the flowers are for cowards but life is for you and me darlin' Yeah life is for you and me darlin' So if hay is for the horses/ Mr Ed when he says hi The fever the cattle/ Haunted wagon rides And if all that stuff is for all that stuff/ What's there left for us? All we get is life/ So choose your life and you'll be alright!

You work for the high society scene/ On Facebook you post pictures with celebrities And they say its not good measure/ of mental health to see How well one adjusts to a sick society You work for he high society scene/ I saw you in Playboy magazine's college girls edition And they say its no good measure/ of mental health to see How well one adjusts to a sick society And tho your hair is jet black your eyes are still green And frankly I'd guess you probably still... Frankly I'd say you probably still... Frankly I'd guess you probably still smell like sunscreen... Coppertone! You work for the high society scene/ Your boyfriend's 55 and you're 23 And they say its not good measure/ of mental health to see How well one adjusts to a sick society And they say its not good measure/ of mental health to see How well one adjusts to a sick society

My dad's been smoking crack since my mom passed away/ I listened to my headphones the entire funeral wake/ I still call my grand mother on every holiday/ But I never made it home since graduation day But I'll be home for Christmas/ To get drunk with you And laugh about all the stupid things/ We got ourselves into But it won't feel like it used to I haven't cried since we put the dog to sleep/ And I had to say goodbye to a small part of me It all feels so different on the same suburban street/ With an empty bottle of whiskey underneath the Christmas tree But I'll be home for Christmas/ To get drunk with you And laugh about all the stupid things/ We got ourselves into But it won't feel like it used to So here's a toast, to the holidays/ It's the happiest time of year A cigarette by the old swing set proves the times have changed it clear So marry Christmas and happy new year My dad's been smoking crack since my mom passed away/ I listened to my headphones the entire funeral wake/ I still call my grand mother on every holiday/ But I never made it home since graduation day So here's a toast, to the holidays/ It's the happiest time of year A cigarette by the old swing set proves the times have changed it clear So marry Christmas and happy new year (X3)

I guess we were all like whatever/ Our freshman year at Western our first semester That's when we were all like whatever/ That's when we were all like whatever When Johnny got busted by the real cops/ For sneakin' dime bags in his gym socks Even Johnny didn't cry/ And no one mentioned him that night No one mentioned him that night/ No one mentioned him that night I guess we were all like whatever/ Our freshman year at Western our first semester That's when we were all like whatever/ That's when we were all like whatever Feelin' like a runaway steak knife/ As you cut across the line Pass that girl and she's all like whatever/ I see her all the time I see her all the time/ I see her all the time But I guess we were all like whatever/ Our freshman year at Western our first semester That's when we were all like whatever/ That's when we were all like whatever Practicing your hello's and goodbye's/ But in a dorm it's hard to hide I'd admit it would be hard to look you in the eye I used to all the time/ I used to all the time/ I used to all the time I guess we were all like whatever/ Our freshman year at Western our first semester That's when we were all like whatever/ That's when we were all like whatever (repeat)

Clothes 03:40
Well there's a bunch of clothes walking around here today/ Just a bunch of clothes with nothing to say I took a mini skirt out on a date/ But we didnt relate/ I guess there wasn't much to say And I can see pants and shirts and hats and shoes/ And I even snuck me a peek at those high heeled boots/ And I've counted countless empty suits/ Well how bout you? Are you an empty suit too? You have a different face/ But you wear the same clothing You have a different name/ But you wear the same shoes So keep me away from that fancy clothing/ Cause I cant afford to be an empty suit If you could step into my shoes friend surely you'd understand/ It takes a lot more then clothes to make a good man Yet you can't be going around not wearing pants/ I mean whats up with that? Who said we all gotta wear pants man? You have a different face/ But you wear the same clothing You have a different name/ But you wear the same shoes So keep me away from that fancy clothing/ Cause I cant afford to be an empty suit Well the moral of the story the lesson here my friends/ Is we live in a primarily visual world that don't make a lot of sense So don't be deceived by all the things you see Remember its just a bunch of clothes walking down the street

If my life never changed/ And I spent all of the rest of my days With no one, or nothing to count on I would say I'd be afraid/ But I know I'd be ok For if nothing, I'd find something to believe in Time conquers all/ Be it big or small And life don't offer much to keep If the ship sailed away And I spent all of the rest of my days/ Alone, on an island eating coconuts I would say I'd be afraid/ But I know I'd be ok For if nothing, I'd at least find a reason Time conquers all/ Be it big or small And life don't offer much to keep If today was like yesterday/ And tomorrow was still more of the same I would say I'd be afraid/ But I know I'd be ok To live is really all that matters Time conquers all/ Be it big or small And life don't offer much to keep (X3)

about

Ben Hanna Boulder, Colorado

ben hanna’s lyrics are often that voice in your head that you don't tell people about. his “post-post rock” style is described as a blend of americana-inspired modern storytelling and high-energy punk. he sings about the human condition and finding your place in groups in society (or not). even people who think he sucks admit some of his songs are ok. ... more
