Track Name: Auld Lang Syne
Another year as it has come to pass
With no guarantee that it won't be my last
So, I'll look ahead and only glance behind
and try to reach another auld lang syne

And I hope I'll be
the best case of me
Oh, 'cause my evil twin's always been
the type who can break free
But, I'll stay in check
and I'll watch my step
so, in that respect...

Let's start all over again
Let's start all over again
Let's start all over again
Let's start all over again

I feel my age, but that's not how I act
I'm not about to fall into that trap
Walking tall, but I'm not flying blind
in hopes of singing the next auld lang syne

And I hope I'll learn
how to wait my turn
and to show some restraint, and some patience
where it has been earned
But, I hope I'll find
at a later time
that the choices were mine

Let's start all over again
Let's start all over again
Let's start all over again
Let's start all over again

Let's start all over again
Let's start all over again
Let's start all over again
Let's start all over again
Track Name: Pitchfork Nation
There comes a time and place
when you don't want to wear those shoes
Because the deadline passed
and the villagers aren't amused

And when my exit comes
I'll take it if it makes sense
You say that the door's unlocked
I've never been quite convinced
It's too intense

And while I've learned some things
I would hesitate to say I'm wise
Go on and do your thing
I am not one to criticize

And if my exit comes
I'll try not to hesitate...
Can't always figure out
just when it is I should wait
Or make that break

It's a pitchfork nation
the edges are sharp
Pardon my hesitation
It's gonna leave a mark
It's a pitchfork nation
and the skies have gone dark
And the torches are out
watch the mob disembark

And when my exit comes
I'll take it if it makes sense
You say that the door's unlocked
I've never been quite convinced
It's too intense

It's a pitchfork nation
the edges are sharp
Pardon my hesitation
It's gonna leave a mark
It's a pitchfork nation
and the skies have gone dark
And the torches are out
watch the mob disembark
Track Name: Fingers Crossed
It can't be helped
I must be careful or I'll jinx myself
There's what is precious, and what can be shelved
It's no big loss
With my fingers crossed

Sadness lies
You pick your battles, and you strategize
and try to stay away from active lies
The hat gets tossed
With my fingers crossed

And like most of life
It's all a balance
Trip, and you might drop
But, with any luck
We learn to work with
Everything we've got

'Though we must be brave
Exploring places where the road's unpaved
And no one ever will emerge unscathed
I'll take my spot
With my fingers crossed

Stand and breathe
Clear my mind, and find out what I need
To be as logical as I can be
More like Spock
With my fingers crossed

And like most of life
It's all a balance
Trip, and you might drop
But, with any luck
We learn to work with
Everything we've got

[SOLO]

It can't be helped
I must be careful or I'll jinx myself
There's what is precious, and what can be shelved
It's no big loss
With my fingers crossed

Sadness lies
You pick your battles, and you strategize
and try to stay away from active lies
The hat gets tossed
With my fingers crossed
Track Name: After You
It's late, I know
You don't like the cold
So, I will hold the door and go in after you

And, truth be told
I have gotten old
Time: Just where does it go?
Why can't it be renewed?

I was used to going first
There's things you can't rehearse
'Cause this life comes without a test run
And no questions are observed

Back when we met (We met and my life was changed)
I'd take extra steps (I'm sure you thought that I was strange)
Taking the long way around (And you'd be right, but it remains)
And, I'd be after you (There's no one after you)

You'd smile at me (You'd smile and I would just melt)
and my heart felt free (A puddle of my former self)
Friends said it was meant to be (I know that I required help)
That turned out to be true (There's no one after you)

I was used to going first
There's things you can't rehearse
'Cause this life comes without a test run
And no questions are observed

Love is imperfect
People get hurt
It's not blue skies and butterflies
but it's often worth the work

It's late, I know
It's almost time to go
Near the end of the show
It's sad but, it's still true

So, now I'm sure (Still, I'm not sure how this sounds)
It's not what I'd prefer (I plan on keeping you around)
But you asked nice a time or two (Don't you get in a hurry now)
So, I'll go after you (But I'll go after you)

[When all is said and done and we have reached the end]
[We had a real good run through all the curves and bends]
[I couldn't make this up if I would just pretend]
[I will go after you]
Track Name: Tired of Talking
Tired of talking,
exhausted by the effort,
and so I'm finished.
Track Name: Regime Change (feat. Nathan Lansing, Don Hawkins, Jason Johnson, Ellis Paul, and Rachael Layne)
[SING ALONG CHORUS]
I swear, it's kinda obscene
Think that it's time to change the regime
Because hey, you backed the wrong team
Think that it's time to change the regime

(Glenn)
The time for action's drawing closer every day
There's only so much it can help to think and pray

(Nathan)
'Cause all you get is numb when you're sitting on your hands
And look what happened when we gave this piece a chance

[SING ALONG CHORUS]
I swear, it's kinda obscene
Think that it's time to change the regime
Because hey, you backed the wrong team
Think that it's time to change the regime

(Don)
Keep your eyes peeled 'cause the change might be abrupt
He's a little man who has to prove that he is tough

(Jason)
So, watch those tiny hands, they'll try to sneak attack
'Cause when they grab you, it's a must to grab them back!

[SING ALONG CHORUS]
I swear, it's kinda obscene
Think that it's time to change the regime
Because hey, you backed the wrong team
Think that it's time to change the regime

[SOLO]

[SING ALONG CHORUS]
I swear, it's kinda obscene
Think that it's time to change the regime
Because hey, you backed the wrong team
Think that it's time to change the regime

(Ellis)
He breaks the law, but can he get away with it?
As of yet it isn't a dictatorship
If we survive this, match the money to your mouth
Because the time will come for us to vote him out

[SING ALONG CHORUS]
I swear, it's kinda obscene
Think that it's time to change the regime
Because hey, you backed the wrong team
Think that it's time to change the regime
I swear, it's kinda obscene
Pity that fool, like the man from A-Team
Because hey, you backed the wrong team
Think that it's time to change the regime
Track Name: A Sense of the Absurd
The river's dry
I think you said goodbye
Technically I heard your words but then a fog appeared

Now all I see
Is unreality
Things are not the way they were
And so it all got weird

CHORUS
There's a bathroom on the right
So 'scuse me while I kiss this guy
I'm wrapped up like a douche
Cause there's a sense of the absurd tonight

The end of you and me
Is breaking gravity
Up is down and down is up almost like flight controls

And out that door
Are flying pigs that soar
Honestly I don't know what to believe any more

[REPEAT CHORUS]

Please believe me
The ground has crumbled beneath me
I couldn't entertain briefly
That you would go
Hits like a cannon
I had no understanding
That this is what you were planning
I just didn't know

The seconds hand
Will spill away like sand
You can live in the real world while I'm in La La Land.

[REPEAT CHORUS TWICE]

Big orange head had a light on
Don't carry me too far away
Hold me closer, Tony Danza
Track Name: Elevator Men
I'd say we start at the bottom
but, that's not always true
Some have an advantage from the start
The men explore
different paths and different floors
Except the empty spot which used to house a heart

And 'though there's up and downs
in the cities and the towns
The skyscrapers are eerily the same
A path that's fraught with fraud
at home and abroad
It's a race to have a name within the game

The elevator men
Will act and they'll pretend
to justify the ends,
and no one is your friend

And there's a penthouse suite
reserved for the elite
but, you cannot reach the floor without the code
'though the draw is strong
to go where you don't belong
You might think that you can hide it, but they'll know
And you must commit
when the exit sign is lit
So, step lively, and please do not block doors
Because to fit in
with the elevator men
First, you must believe that everything is yours

The elevator men
Will act and they'll pretend
to justify the ends,
and no one is your friend
Track Name: Excuse Me (feat. The Def Author)
Excuse me
I would like to buy vowels
I'm not throwing in the towel
But, it's crunch time now

Excuse me
Turn those letters if you would
Found solutions where I could
Progressed enough to do some good

I would like to solve the puzzle
It is close to complete
Everything is on the line
Victory so sweet
The trips, money, the prizes
I'd like to be the winner this week

Excuse me
This sentence is tough to discern
I guess I'll need to lose this turn
There's more money left to burn

Excuse me
These words, they're incomplete
I'm not loving your technique
Bought the U which is unique

I would like to solve the puzzle
It is close to complete
Everything is on the line
Victory so sweet
The trips, money, the prizes
I'd like to be the winner this week

Excuse Me, Fill in the empty holes
I'll pick the letters on the show
Complete the words, now we're good to go
Excuse me, might I get this request
I'll fill up the empty text
Shout "Yes" when I give my guess

There's history within this, the show survived
Much evolved over time since seventy-five
Lights which lit, legit, in front of your eyes
Within modern times - They're now computerized
Exercise is wise for the mind, so combine
the timeline to find the structure of the word's design
Some Greek, some built upon long forgotten text
I confess, the muscles in my mind, they're trying to flex
So, next, I do believe in order to succeed
I'll need to heed thoughts quickly, with some frightening speed
'til the puzzle's decoded, so to whoever wrote it
Nicely done, it's surely difficult, my memory exploded
I'll try to get it right, elude the Kryptonite
'til it's down to the letter, which is turned by Ms. White
No losing turns or money, I'm just going by feel
Now I'm here to win the fortune, so I'm spinning the wheel

Excuse Me, Fill in the empty holes
I'll pick the letters on the show
Complete the words, now we're good to go
Excuse me, might I get this request
I'll fill up the empty text
Shout "Yes" when I give my guess

Excuse me There's something I still wish to convey
Yes, witches get stitches, how much do ducks weigh?
If it's words to wood, which will be pulled behind the sleigh
Hitch the buggy up firm, then sound: the horse neigh
I'd surmise I'm only kidding, it is J then K
No need to be offended, or to yell out "Hey!"
The words choose me, I just choose to obey
Flying in upon the wind, like they're birds of prey
Still I know this is something you would like to see
Sticking things together like it's LMNOP
So, excuse me, it isn't difficult if you try
This is buy or sell, I recommend the choice of buy
Word soup is in progress, I figure you know
Vowel sounds which don't count for your info
It's devoid of the letter, check to see, it's true
HEY, ME I TRY to KNOW to DO, right by you

(Hey, Me, Try, Know, Do)
(Hey, Me, Try, Know, Do)
Track Name: Covfefe and Tea
I CAN'T THINK, I CAN'T THINK
I CAN'T THINK BECAUSE I'M SO MESSED UP RIGHT NOW
SO, TELL ME HOW
TO CONNECT, TO CONNECT
TO CONNECT UP TO THE INTERNET
AND DON'T DOUBLE CHECK

I GOT THE BEST WORDS, I GOT THE BEST WORDS
I GOT THE BEST WORDS
I'LL MAKE SOME UP FOR ME
I'VE HAD TOO MUCH, I'VE HAD TOO MUCH
I'VE HAD TOO MUCH TO DRINK
I'VE HAD COVFEFE AND TEA

TOO MUCH WORK, TOO MUCH WORK
TOO MUCH WORK, OH YEAH, IT'S DIFFICULT
I THOUGHT IT'S EASY AS HECK
UNPREPARED, UNPREPARED
UNPREPARED, THEY TREAT ME SO UNFAIR
DO I CARE? I'D SAY NYET!

I GOT THE BEST WORDS, I GOT THE BEST WORDS
I GOT THE BEST WORDS
I'LL MAKE SOME UP FOR ME
I'VE HAD TOO MUCH, I'VE HAD TOO MUCH
I'VE HAD TOO MUCH TO DRINK
I'VE HAD COVFEFE AND TEA

COVFEFE AND TEA

I GOT THE BEST WORDS, I GOT THE BEST WORDS
I GOT THE BEST WORDS
I'LL MAKE SOME UP FOR ME
I'VE HAD TOO MUCH, I'VE HAD TOO MUCH
I'VE HAD TOO MUCH TO DRINK
I'VE HAD COVFEFE AND TEA
Track Name: Now Get Out
I would like to be polite and do what's right
and not disturb the peace
But as of now I am convinced
that you can not take hints, it's time to leave

Just in case you were not sure
It's this way to the door...

NOW GET OUT
before it gets too late
WHAT ABOUT
this did you not get straight?
NOW GET OUT
because you've overstayed your welcome, yeah

I don't know if you're just acting like you
can not pick up on social cues
But at this point my patience ended,
hospitality has been abused

Tired to stand and stretch and yawn
It's time that you were gone...

NOW GET OUT
before it gets too late
WHAT ABOUT
this did you not get straight?
NOW GET OUT
because you've overstayed your welcome, yeah

(Solo)

NOW GET OUT
before it gets too late
WHAT ABOUT
this did you not get straight?
NOW GET OUT
because you've overstayed your time

NOW GET OUT
before it gets too late
WHAT ABOUT
this did you not get straight?
NOW GET OUT
because you've overstayed your welcome
Played yourself, son
Time for you to go
Track Name: New Year's Eve
I saw the clock tick down
for the ball to drop
All the sights and sounds
the senses swallow up

And 'though we knew the year would reach an end
Just because that's how it's always been
There's many resolutions we can try and fail
Never knowing what it will entail

Champagne glasses full
Many toasts are made
People ebb and flow
Tomorrow's New Year's Day

And 'though we knew the year would reach an end
Just because that's how it's always been
There's many resolutions we can try and fail
Never knowing what it will entail

Tonight it's New Year's Eve
and the time ahead has tricks up its sleeve
The evening wanes
The year will change
But some things remain the same
Some things remain the same
Tonight it's New Year's Eve
At least one number steps in to intercede
The evening wanes
The year will change
But some things remain the same
Some things remain the same

[SOLO]

Tonight it's New Year's Eve
and the time ahead has tricks up its sleeve
The evening wanes
The year will change
But some things remain the same
Some things remain the same
Tonight it's New Year's Eve
At least one number steps in to intercede
The evening wanes
The year will change
But some things remain the same
Some things remain the same
