Track Name: Many Strange Birds
There’s nothing to do today
Except go out my front door
It may seem trite or just a bit too bright
But all I want to do is explore

BA^3

Love of mine, you will shine and you will cease to be
But don’t you cry, you will find peace

We’re getting older, soon we’ll be dust
Talk of our dinner all we can muster
For now we’re young, let’s lay with eachother
Down in fields together and get tangled up in one another

Love of mine, don’t you cry don’t you weep
You’ll be a posthumous part of the scene

(Big arms mechanical heart)
Love of mine, you will shine and you will cease to be
But don’t you cry, you will find peace
Love of mine, don’t you cry don’t you weep
You’ll be a posthumous part of the scene
Track Name: Let's Start the Mustache Summer!
Karina plays the skins in a little indie outfit just out of town
I’d ask her out but I’d only get shot down
We stand across the aisle way in this little bookstore that we share
It’s so unjust and it’s so unfair
(It isn’t fair)
Karina’s just a little bit addicted to a thing I like to call
Hydrocodone B
I don’t mind, it doesn’t bother me
(It isn’t fair)
Come on, Come on
Karina, everything you’ve got
All we know is hearsay, but it gets so hot
Come on, Come on
Karina, all you’ve got in spades
All we know is hearsay, but it tastes so great

Dad says never burn a bridge before you try to cross it
But I don’t mind getting stuck in this town

Come on, Come on
Karina, everything you’ve got
All we know is hearsay, but it gets so hot
Come on, Come on
Karina, all you’ve got in spades
All we know is hearsay, but it tastes so great

Karina is a monster with diamond claws
And if we fight back we’ll all get rocked to sleep
And beaten ‘til we can’t breath

Come on, Come on
Karina, everything you’ve got
All we know is hearsay, but it gets so hot
Come on, Come on
Karina, all you’ve got in spades
All we know is hearsay, but it tastes so great
Track Name: I'm on a Roller Coaster that Only Goes Up, Kid
In providers, not the parents, there’s mostly something missing
Friends begat an ugly type of creature
When the nest egg catches fire put the masses in the pyres
I hope your offspring is the main feature
Rip apart a gold mine
ribbons ripping into twine
Melting, molding minor minds
no longer worth entire lives

Oh, the modern songs go
(HEY! HEY! WOO! WE’RE EXCITED ABOUT THIS SONG!)
I love you so! I need you so!
Take off your clothes
Forget your friends! buy our colognes!
Our hot cognitions sold as freedom
Don’t be defeated by tradition

Before undignified decline I think I’d rather I resign
And devote my life to spreading something cleaner
When there’s acid in the air, a fight with nature
Fine and fair
Could leave the furrowed face of cityscapes beleaguered
What about a white lie
Loosens up a tight tie
The hypnotizing soft sighs
But no longer worth entire lives

Oh, the modern songs go
(HEY! WOAH! HERE WE ARE AGAN!)
I love you so! I need you so!
Take off your clothes
Forget your friends! buy our colognes!
Our hot cognitions sold as freedom
Don’t be defeated by tradition

We refuse to accept the clear and present danger of your tongue
And how you lash it at me as if I were truly no one
Track Name: Carter Dean
The best days of your life amount to nine-to-fives
And the smiles turn to winces and the winces come in waves
Every night
I am adrift on a makeshift ship
You are adrift on a makeshift ship
I am adrift on a makeshift ship
You are a sea that I just can’t swim
Do what you want to

In bed, across a sheet from the she-thing that neutered you
That’s okay, you’ll have a child or two
I am adrift on a makeshift ship
You are adrift on a makeshift ship
I am adrift on a makeshift ship
You are a sea that I just can’t swim
Do what you want to

Do what you want to (On and on forever into the blackest night, into the coldest abyss)
Track Name: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Trains
Hope, Hope
I have no hope
Everyone loves me but everyone’s moving away
and I won’t sleep tonight
Ghost retch out of your throat
What will you tell your friends
What will you tell your folks
I won’t sleep tonight

Ba da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da dee doo

Taste, taste
I can not taste
Everything’s bland, yeah, no, everything’s a shade of gray
I won't sleep tonight
Armed to the teeth
and you’re coming to me for advice?
Think twice
I’m an evil man
I’ve got evil plans of my own

Ba dee doo da hee hoo etc.

Armed to the teeth
and you’re coming to me for advice?
Think twice
I’m an evil man
And I won’t sleep tonight
(Three times to put emphasis on how little I will sleep tonight)
