Track Name: Eat the cake you have!
it's like wearing different colored socks
or microwaving tea
let's fold the hands we got
cus man it's not 123
all the times I've been around the block
I never crossed the street
I can make it up to here
but then it's not up to me
it's not up to me

you were hoping for a bigger boy
not someone like me

were you hoping for a purple cloth
for all your royalties?
you could go collect the set
but you'd still be incomplete
I keep trying to get off the clock
but the hand's glued to my feet
I'll try the best I can
but man it's not up to me
it's not up to me

you were hoping for a bigger boy
bigger capital B

I'll try the best I can
but man it's not up to me
Track Name: toys are fun "questioning"
I'd give it back but I want it more
I'd give it back but I want it more intruding
so Judy is jealous cus she gets no reaction
we're gonna wait a little more
are you strung out?
do you need a hit?
do you need a hug?
no matter what I say it always comes out wrong
I'm sorry for everything to everyone
maybe I lied at least I tried
there's always someone new with a better song
I'm sorry I need a hit I need a hug
Track Name: I am chicken shit "pathetic"
made up my mind a hundred times a day
baby be mine is just too hard to say
I was in love with you but you never knew
once in a while I try to set the mood
but when you smile I'll add a thing like dude
Track Name: icecaps, capisce? "angry"
since I started on this road
everyone is getting old
and I'm getting paranoid
do what's good for you turn your back on me
keep me just out of reach
if I'm a dog then you're Alicia
if I fall asleep please don't bury me
if I sleep a week it's ok
I'm aware and I don't care anymore
to sip your tang
it's a peach yeah man capisce?
Track Name: raped and stabbed "cooperative"
you keep bursting into flames
but not in my yard not in my hometown
there's nothing for you there
I don't think that I'm to blame but you're not either
so then what should I do now?
tell me what should I do now?
let's work it out
if it takes every beat of my heart to get off my chest
I'm ready for it now
I'm finally ready
check it out
every day still feels the same
I keep on trying but I don't know how
someone should write a book
that's the last thing that I need I hate to read
so tell me what can I do now?
baby what can I do now?
I'm fucking ready
Track Name: sunday brave "reconciled"
I've been looking around for something new
something cool nothing moot
I've been looking around for something true
something that makes me happy
looking over and over without a clue
I go walking around like some big fool
like sunday brave like sunday new
I go out on the town to scare the spooks
but nothing ever happens
same thing over and over
not that cool
same thing over and over
not that cool
take the top off the bottom babe
hold my head cus I'm going insane
say your hello
break up like a bottle baby
it's on you
I looked over and over and I found you
you won me over and over nothing to it
you keep winning me over
I think it over and over
Track Name: bad weather blues
the wind is stronger and the sun is hotter
it's twice as windy as it was 50 years ago

I have no idea if I think that's true or not
but I'm pretty sure it's more windy than when I was a kid
I don't know what that means but it makes me think
and I think that's a really good thing
the plan for now is act like nothing's wrong
keep my nose in my book and my back to the wall
you're money when you're made up like the shakedown and the stickup men

when I focus on the ringing in my ears at night
I find accidental madness is the only thing I fear
I had yellow cake for breakfast
but I've swallowed words for years or decades

dead bees up to my knees
people in need aren't the people to please
I've got arm & hammer teeth for oppenheimer's beef
I'm an oxy moron I pour it on thick
I'd like to make a difference
don't think it should take a trick
I want it us against them
but if it's me against you that's fine

everything I want to see isn't far fetched
but it seems so out of reach

you're mental
uranium
Track Name: Rivers Cuomo
don't deny me this my love
if you give me a chance I'll jump
headfirst into the water
I'm not the same as my father
shut me out or let me in
I remember the first thing you said was
I kinda look like Rivers Cuomo
but not that much like Buddy Holly

easy come and easy go
I don't care if I never know
how you really felt about me
to me it was just a hobby
I had no expectations
there was nothing except exceptions
Track Name: where is god when I'm sacred?
I don't like to bathe more than twice a week
it shouldn't be so hard to brush my teeth
I should've walked the dog but I fell asleep
it's so bizarre and I swear that it won't happen again
you drive me to complain like a bitter cabbie
but you're the one whose arm is flabby
you're not fat in the face
you just don't know when to quit
hey man this orange is square
let's go break open the pen

you don't understand what I just said
but I think you know just what I meant
I'm here to find the space and time to get it off my mind
it's still wet but it's still cement

I'm tired of fighting with you
I'm going to find a new way
I'm tired of waiting and living to fight a new day
Track Name: dead meat
like a fish in the sky
I get a little time and I wonder why
under the stars is where I get lost every time
it's a long way down and there's no way out
I figured out it's up to you
what could we do without turning your dead to meat?

don't hope
believe me if they call you up you'll know
and you could seem like number one
as far as they're concerned
and you might be

and the best thing I can think to do
is just follow through and not follow you

don't choke
believe me if they call you up you'll know
and you don't seem a damn concerned
to watch the whole thing burning nightly
Track Name: PGPR
I hope I eat my words some day
some days I've got nothing to say
what did you say?
say it again
say it again please

spend an hour running
it's been an hour running
but the hour's running out

Vitamins
I try to fit them in
it's hard guess it's not in the cards
I should eat more vegetables
Track Name: fake disaster
she's raging like an AT field
I can't tell her just how I feel
it's fish for brains and pills for pain
this is like a fake disaster
I'm not thinking about the winter
she's cooking me my last meal
this is like an old west showdown
for no good reason I should go

everything everything everything
everything I want is here
I could chalk it up to you
ok
o cool
