Track Name: One Take
You could say that I'm sloppy
and that I'm losing my edge
You're not wrong, and I copy
but, that won't go to my head

'Cause that's just one take
Just one more perspective
and I can state it here for the record
That's just one take
Just one more opinion
and I can make more fuel for the engine

You could say that it's hopeless
I'd say you're probably right
But, I can't lose my focus
The goal's within my sight

'Cause that's just one take
Just one more perspective
and I can state it here for the record
That's just one take
Just one more opinion
and I can make more fuel for the engine

It does no good, so do no harm
Why do you always get that wrong?

You could say that I'm senseless
You can say what you like
But let me point out the exit
So you get on with your life
Track Name: You're Everywhere
I think I saw you at the airport.
I think I saw you at the Halloween store
I think I saw you at the steakhouse

You're everywhere
Everywhere I go
You're everywhere
Everywhere I go
Are you following me?
Is it coincidental?

I think I saw you at the pet store
I think I saw you at the maid cafe
I think I saw you working TSA

You're everywhere
Everywhere I go
You're everywhere
Everywhere I go
Are you following me?
Is it coincidental?

How many jobs do you have?
(All of the jobs)
How do we keep crossing paths?
(Don't give it a thought)
Someday I may have to ask
(Probably not)

[Solo]

You're everywhere
Everywhere I go
You're everywhere
Everywhere I go
Are you following me?
Is it coincidental?
Track Name: I'll Take You to War
So, you'd rather be feared than respected
It's just your plan to try to get re-elected
Send the troops half-way across the world
But I can't go, I got bone spurs

I am the president
I don't care who survives
My favorite game is playing chess
with human lives
Pay attention
and you will not be surprised
And what's more
I'll do it again
I did it before
I'll take you to war!

Down in the polls, and so you guessed it...
Start a war in Iran because you're desperate
This is what you said Obama would do
You tweeted out your playbook, didn't you?

I am the president
I don't care who survives
My favorite game is playing chess
with human lives
Pay attention
and you will not be surprised
And what's more
I'll do it again
I did it before
I'll take you to war!
Track Name: Don't Fix It
Don't call me
I don't wanna talk to you
I don't like you

But, that's unspoken
the past is staying broken

Don't fix it
No, there's no point

Don't question it
Don't ask why
There are times when you should let it die
You should move on
And so can I

Don't fix it
No, there's no point
Don't fix it
No, there's no point

Stop talking
There's nothing more for us to say
I can't stand you

But, that's unspoken
the past is staying broken

Don't fix it
No, there's no point
Don't fix it
No, there's no point

Keep on knocking but
I won't open up
In my eyes and ears
You've been dead for years
We should not cross paths
What I see you as:
Wasted space

But, that's unspoken
the past is staying broken

Don't fix it
No, there's no point
Don't fix it
No, there's no point
Don't fix it
No

But, that's unspoken
the past is staying broken

Don't fix it
No, there's no point
Don't fix it
No
Track Name: Something's Wrong
A-okay
Seems that there's nothing amiss
But, I'd say
That's when you know something is

I don't know
I can never put my finger on it

Every time
I feel myself settling in
Nothing's fine
The paranoia sets in

I don't know
I can never put my finger on it

Because something's wrong
You can't prepare for this
You only know that something's wrong
and it cannot be fixed

[Solo]

I don't know
I can never put my finger on it
I don't know
but I'm certain that I'll never want it

Because something's wrong
You can't prepare for this
You only know that something's wrong
and it cannot be fixed
I'm telling you there's something wrong
I don't know what it is
Track Name: Make No Mistake
I would say that I have made
choices that were not too safe
All in all I feel okay
I would not have change a thing
Whatever this brings

Make no mistake
I will not break
I will not bend the way you want me to
Bring on the hate
I know you're fake
I will not bed
I will not break
Make no mistake
I won't hesitate

You have tales that you can tell
And you do it very well
You can cast a magic spell
But be sure to blame yourself
You can go to hell

Make no mistake
I will not break
I will not bend the way you want me to
Bring on the hate
I know you're fake
I will not bed
I will not break
Make no mistake
I won't hesitate

Control the narrative
and make them believe
That you are not at fault
if that helps you sleep

Make no mistake
I will not break
I will not bend the way you want me to
Bring on the hate
I know you're fake
I will not bed
I will not break
Make no mistake
I won't hesitate
Track Name: I'm No Good
I don't have the words to comfort you
In any meaningful way
I've got no guidebook saying what to do
And wouldn't read a single page

I apologize for who I am
I want to fix it, and I know that I can't
My mind is searching
I'm ill-equipped
Despite intentions I would have to admit

I'm no good... at this
I'm no good... at this

[SOLO]

And I never want to lie to you
and offer hope when there's no proof
It's likely I will crack an awkward joke
When there's no comfort in the truth

I apologize for who I am
I want to fix it, and I know that I can't
My mind is searching
I'm ill-equipped
Despite intentions I would have to admit

I'm no good... at this
I'm no good... at this
I'm no good... at this
I'm no good... at this
Track Name: It Won't Matter (I'll Be Dead By Then)
There are letters I could write
that I will not send
But it won't matter to me
'Cause I'll be dead by then

I'll ostracize everybody
Until I have no friends
But it won't matter to me
'Cause I'll be dead by then

And it's hard
It's a full time job
Pissing everybody off

Death will come and surprise me
Although I can't say when
But it won't matter to me
'Cause I'll be dead by then

[SOLO]

And it's hard
It's a full time job
Pissing everybody off
(I do it a LOT!)

After I die, at the funeral
No one will attend
But it won't matter to me
'Cause I'll be dead by then

The whole planet will burn up
And the world will end
But it won't matter to me
'Cause I'll be dead
I lost my head
and I'll be dead by then
Track Name: Don't Wait
You haven't had a lot to say
You've been shy
That's all right
You don't have to speak a word
if you like
to be quiet

If you're not feeling me then I can go
But if you are, you've gotta let me know

You've been holding it inside so long
Don't wait
Don't wait
Don't wait around until the moment's gone
Don't wait
Don't wait

And I imagine there's a choice
You're not sure
You've been hurt before
So if you want me to I will leave
Out that door
and I won't return

And we don't ever have to take it fast
But wait too long you're gonna miss your chance!

You've been holding it inside so long
Don't wait
Don't wait
Don't wait around until the moment's gone
Don't wait
Don't wait

And if there's anything at all you want from me
We'll see
I make no promises, but I can guarantee
I got what you need
I got what you need
Track Name: A Doom With a View
Most of the time
You have some choices you can make
like mistakes within a grand design
and that's all fine

But often enough
There's not a thing that you can do
Don't like how it turned out? That's tough.
Here's where you're stuck

So, that's where I am
A doom with a view
Hoping this fate
isn't quite true
A doom with a view

And I'm afraid
because you reap what you sow
and I planted mostly spite and hate
There's a debt to be paid

So, that's where I am
A doom with a view
Hoping this fate
isn't quite true
A doom with a view

And now
I have
a bed
to lie in
Where I
am trapped
and I
will die in
I can't
go back
No use
in trying
I accept the blame
and recognize my fate

So, that's where I am
A doom with a view
Hoping this fate
isn't quite true
A doom with a view

So, that's where I am
A doom with a view
Hoping this fate
isn't quite true
A doom with a view
Track Name: No Vacancy
Apologies, we're all full
You should have registered a long time ago

'Cause there's no vacancy here
There's no room for you
There's no room for you

You made no plans, so there's risk
Out busiest season, and space is limited

'Cause there's no vacancy here
There's no room for you
There's no room for you

Instead of taking that chance
Next time prepare in advance for any circumstance
Track Name: A Conversation
I suppose
Maybe you could change your mind
I don't know
And I don't wanna waste my time

And 'though the tone is strained
Nothing ventured, nothing gained

And so it goes
Let's have a conversation
You never learned
The way it works
It's ebb and flow
Within a conversation
But you attack
with endless words

I can see
this isn't going anywhere
You can speak
but honestly I just don't care

I guess that I'm the same
That doesn't mean I'm not ashamed

And so it goes
Let's have a conversation
You never learned
The way it works
It's ebb and flow
Within a conversation
But you attack
with endless words

And from time to time it's true
It's true
We can spend time talking 'bout you
And you do
Yeah, you do

And so it goes
Let's have a conversation
You never learned
The way it works
It's ebb and flow
Within a conversation
But you attack
with endless words
Track Name: Robot Ninja Zombie Bear
It's dangerous
On top of that the pay's not much
No, the pay's not much
Should write your epitaph
You're hoping that the doors stay shut
Yeah, the doors stay shut

AND IT'S RIDICULOUS
YEAH, IT ISN'T FAIR
YOU'RE DEALING WITH SOME KIND OF ROBOT NINJA ZOMBIE BEAR
AND, IT'S RIDICULOUS
YEAH, IT ISN'T FAIR
YOU'RE DEALING WITH SOME KIND OF ROBOT NINJA ZOMBIE BEAR

They're killer animals
It's best that you don't press your luck
Yeah, don't test your luck
You're weak and you're exposed
They're clever, and they're out for blood
Yeah, they're out for blood

AND IT'S RIDICULOUS
YEAH, IT ISN'T FAIR
YOU'RE DEALING WITH SOME KIND OF ROBOT NINJA ZOMBIE BEAR
AND, IT'S RIDICULOUS
YEAH, IT ISN'T FAIR
YOU'RE DEALING WITH SOME KIND OF ROBOT NINJA ZOMBIE BEAR

ROBOT NINJA ZOMBIE BEAR
ROBOT NINJA ZOMBIE BEAR

[solo]

AND IT'S RIDICULOUS
YEAH, IT ISN'T FAIR
YOU'RE DEALING WITH SOME KIND OF ROBOT NINJA ZOMBIE BEAR
AND, IT'S RIDICULOUS
YEAH, IT ISN'T FAIR
YOU'RE DEALING WITH SOME KIND OF ROBOT NINJA ZOMBIE BEAR
AND, IT'S RIDICULOUS
YEAH, IT ISN'T FAIR
YOU'RE DEALING WITH SOME KIND OF ROBOT NINJA ZOMBIE BEAR
AND, IT'S RIDICULOUS
YEAH, IT ISN'T FAIR
YOU'RE DEALING WITH SOME KIND OF ROBOT NINJA ZOMBIE BEAR
YOU'RE DEALING WITH SOME KIND OF ROBOT NINJA ZOMBIE BEAR
ROBOT NINJA
ZOMBIE BEAR!
Track Name: Darling, You're Strange
You let me know
Confidentially
You have a type
that sounds like a lot like me

You say that no one else would get the way you are
(You are)
And that you couldn't be as weird, or comfortable
From the heart

You can be yourself
When no one is around
You said when I am home
You don't have to tone it down

You say that no one else would get the way you are
(You are)
And that you couldn't be as weird, or comfortable
From the heart

I've gotta say
Darling, You're strange
That's a good thing
Darling, You're strange
Darling, You're strange

[SOLO]

You say that no one else would get the way you are
(You are)
And that you couldn't be as weird, or comfortable
From the heart

I've gotta say
Darling, You're strange
That's a good thing
Darling, You're strange
Darling, You're strange
I've gotta say
Darling, You're strange
That's a good thing
Darling, You're strange
Darling, You're strange
Darling, You're strange
Darling, You're strange
Track Name: We Are Perfect in Our Dreams (Instrumental)
[NOPE!]
Track Name: We Keep Them Alive
The less you know
the better
It's best you go...
forever

We keep them alive
They are undefined
No reason for why
We keep them...

And there will be
no questions
It's best you heed
suggestions

We keep them alive
They are undefined
No reason for why
We keep them...

We keep them alive
They are undefined
No reason for why
We keep them...
Track Name: Deterioration
This structure
is not sound
This adjective
is not noun

Deterioration
It's gonna fall apart
Deterioration
It's gonna fall apart
Deterioration
It's gonna fall apart
It's gonna fall apart

This future
is right now

Deterioration
It's gonna fall apart
Deterioration
It's gonna fall apart
Deterioration
It's gonna fall apart
It's gonna fall apart

Because nothing lasts
Nothing lasts!

Deterioration
It's gonna fall apart
Deterioration
It's gonna fall apart
Deterioration
It's gonna fall apart
It's gonna fall apart
Track Name: No Good Can Come of This
No good can come of this
Too little too late
No good can come of this
Not much I can say
I messed up time and again
and that's how I lost my friend

You won't hear this but just the same
I will write it anyway

'Cause I have regrets
From the things that I did and said
My intentions were good
but, I have to admit

No good can come of this
Too little too late
No good can come of this
Not much I can say
I messed up time and again
and that's how I lost my friend

And so I learned what I should not do
The stupid things that I said to you

'Cause I have regrets
From the things that I did and said
My intentions were good
but, I have to admit

No good can come of this
Too little too late
No good can come of this
Not much I can say
I messed up time and again
and that's how I lost my friend

[Solo]

No good can come of this
Too little too late
No good can come of this
Not much I can say
I messed up time and again
and that's how I lost my friend
Track Name: Someone Else's Voice (feat. Don Hawkins)
Pay attention
Don't delay
Best intentions
are betrayed
'Cause you get to the point
where there's nothing you can do or say

Check the average
Check the mean
Check your baggage
and then you come clean
Trouble brews in the news
and it's shaking people to their bones
Check the forecast
It's raining sticks and stones

But it really won't matter
when you're presented with a choice
When you open your mouth
and you speak in someone else's voice
But it really won't matter
when you're presented with a choice
When you open your mouth
and you speak in someone else's voice

[Solo]

In a sense, I'm convinced
that we never really had a say

But it really won't matter
when you're presented with a choice
When you open your mouth
and you speak in someone else's voice
Track Name: BOOMSHAKALAKA!
Sometimes life stinks
Most of the time
Things are unfair
And on those days
You've gotta try
Not to despair

And please don't be too shy
to ask
for help
These days in life I try
not to wish anything
I wouldn't wish on myself

When you've got it all figured out
Like it'll never go South
Life can hit you hard like...
BOOMSHAKALAKA!
When you've got it all figured out
Like it'll never go South
Life can hit you hard like...
BOOMSHAKALAKA!

It's no slam dunk
If you're the hoop
or you're the ball
You're in a funk
'though that's the truth
Try to stand tall

And please don't be too shy
to ask
for help
These days in life I try
not to wish anything
I wouldn't wish on myself

When you've got it all figured out
Like it'll never go South
Life can hit you hard like...
BOOMSHAKALAKA!
When you've got it all figured out
Like it'll never go South
Life can hit you hard like...
BOOMSHAKALAKA!

[THIS SPACE LEFT OPEN FOR A MESSAGE FROM TIM KITZROW]

And please don't be too shy
to ask
for help
These days in life I try
not to wish anything
I wouldn't wish on myself

When you've got it all figured out
Like it'll never go South
Life can hit you hard like...
BOOMSHAKALAKA!
When you've got it all figured out
Like it'll never go South
Life can hit you hard like...
BOOMSHAKALAKA!
When you've got it all figured out
Like it'll never go South
Life can hit you hard like...
BOOMSHAKALAKA!
When you've got it all figured out
Like it'll never go South
Life can hit you hard like...
BOOMSHAKALAKA!
Track Name: It's Gonna Get Ugly at the Chorus
There's a million and nine melodies that you can sing right now
But, it's gonna get ugly when the chorus comes back around
And there's bliss and comfort to go with that familiar sound
But, it's gonna get ugly when the chorus comes back around
(It's about to get ugly)

NOW IT'S HERE
YOU WERE WARNED
THERE'S NO CALM BEFORE THE STORM
AND FOR SOME IT IS A SHOCK
IT MAY ASTOUND
AS FOR WHY IT EXISTS
IT IS NOT BECAUSE IT FITS
IT'S SADISTIC
AND THE AUTHOR IS A CLOWN

It's coming back around

And you may be confused
Should you turn it up or down?
'Cause it's gonna get ugly when the chorus comes back around
Just for safety's sake
You should run away
Get out
GET OUT
(Pretty soon! You don't have long)
'Cause it's gonna get ugly when the chorus comes back around
(Brace yourself! Here it comes!)

NOW IT'S HERE
YOU WERE WARNED
THERE'S NO CALM BEFORE THE STORM
AND FOR SOME IT IS A SHOCK
IT MAY ASTOUND
AS FOR WHY IT EXISTS
IT IS NOT BECAUSE IT FITS
IT'S SADISTIC
AND THE AUTHOR IS A CLOWN

It's coming back around
It's coming back around
It's coming back a...
Track Name: It Made Sense at the Time
How long have we known each other?
What number comes to your mind?
Maybe five or six years
It made sense at the time

There's something
I'll tell you
That you need to know
Can't stay here
It's important
We've gotta go

We ran to the pub, and hastened
He said my house would be fine
Told his story over peanuts and beer
It made sense at the time

There's something
I'll tell you
That you need to know
Can't stay here
It's important
We've gotta go

WHAT THE HELL IS That
UP IN THE SKY?
NO TIME FOR QUESTIONS
GOTTA LEAVE IT BEHIND!
Track Name: The Dregs
The cream of the crop
The tip of the top
Well, that's what we're not

If you take the best
Well, we are what's left
They call us the dregs

And as it sits
We won't be the first you'd call
You must admit
it still beats nothing at all!

So, do you want it done or not?
You got the cash, we'll take the job
and it's easier done than said
We'll get it right 'cause we're the dregs

And when it's complete
We'll wrap it up neat
To keep it discreet

And it'll go smooth
'Cause we are that brood
With something to prove
(and nothing to lose)

And as it sits
We won't be the first you'd call
You must admit
it still beats nothing at all!

So, do you want it done or not?
You got the cash, we'll take the job
and it's easier done than said
We'll get it right 'cause we're the dregs
