Track Name: Indie Rock Bottom
Indie Rock Bottom
(Mahru)

Wearing my new Pumas, I didn't wash my hair
Order another Budweiser and I hope that no one stares
I'm too early at the show, there's no one there I know
Look around at the kids smoking cigarettes

And the band played loud
smashed their guitars on the ground
All the girls blink and sway
All the dudes look away

Not on the guest list, but my show never sold out
Just a band I'm seeing since they left their home town
Used to be Exploding Rhinos, but they changed their name to Explino!
I bought the split 7 inch record with their good friends the Albinos

And the band played loud
smashed their guitars on the ground
All the girls blink and sway
All the dudes look away

Indie rock bottom, Indie rock bottom
Indie rock bottom, Indie rock bottom

I wish my eyes were bad so I could wear those thick frame glasses
I'm saving up for a motor scooter and a black leather jacket
I bought a cheap guitar, now I'm trying to write a song
About the girl in the back of the room, who's cute but doesn't know it

And the band played loud
smashed their guitars on the ground
All the girls blink and sway
All the dudes look away

Indie rock bottom, Indie rock bottom
Indie rock bottom, Indie rock bottom
Track Name: Dark Haired Beautiful Girl
Dark Haired Beautiful Girl
(Mahru)

I woke up this morning to the radio news
Something about the space between molecules
And then as I, I tend to do
I thought of you

'Cause I deserve the love of a dark haired, beautiful girl
And I won't settle for anything less than her
I wake up morning, I feel her breath on my cheek
And I know she's out there, waiting for me

I talked to Joe about settling down
Find someone to always be around
Work the same job in the same town
Plant some roots deep in this ground

'Cause I deserve the love of a dark haired, beautiful girl
And I won't settle for anything less than her
I wake up morning, I feel her breath on my cheek
And I know she's out there, waiting for me

I'd like to find a woman to be my friend
Someone with whom all of my time to spend
Toward spiritual bliss, we will ascend
Like the mandala, this world we will transcend

'Cause I deserve the love of a dark haired, beautiful girl
And I won't settle for anything less than her
I wake up morning, I feel her breath on my cheek
And I know she's out there, waiting for me

She's waiting for me
She's waiting for me
I'm waiting
Track Name: Gonna Be Your Man
Gonna Be Your Man
(Mahru)

I'm gonna be your man
Soon as I devise a plan
Your friends told me we were right
I'm gonna make you see the light

And if it takes another day
I can wait to hear you say
I've longed for you all of my life
I'll be your man, if you'll be my wife

I'm gonna be your man
Your sexual Superman
If you'll be my blow job queen
I'll rock you like you've never been

And if it takes another day
I can wait to hear you say
I've longed for you all of my life
I'll be your man, if you'll be my wife
And if we live a thousands years
There won't be one day of fear
We will be strong and get along
Our heart's love song could never be wrong

You know it's gonna be so beautiful
You know it's gonna be so beautiful

I'm gonna be your man
I'm gonna be your man
I'm gonna be your man
I'm gonna be your man
Track Name: Bad Dreams
Bad Dreams
(Mahru)

How many times did you pass it around?
Did you hold up your end or let it fall down?

I went walking down by the stream
I was thinking about my bad dreams
In the country where I was king
And the nights spent, dreaming my bad dreams

How many nights did you just hang around
Alone in your room, hiding a frown

I went walking down by the stream
I was thinking about my bad dreams
In the country where I was king
And the nights spent, dreaming my bad dreams

And I know you're still there
In that town they burned down
Abandoned for ruin
Insulted the ground

[Solo]

I went walking down by the stream
I was thinking about my bad dreams
In the country where cash is king
And the nights spent, dreaming my bad dreams
Track Name: Why Are You Making Me Kick You Out?
Why Are You Making Me Kick You Out?
(Mahru)

Why'd you make me kick you out?
Things were going fine until they went awry
You left me to clean out the house
Of all the messes you left behind

There are things I can forgive
You did all those unforgiveable
Now, I can' t kick out the pain
So, I had to kick you out

Let me set the record straight
You said you never wanted help from anyone
You tried to cover over your mistakes
and in the process only messied up the place

There are things I can forgive
You did all those unforgiveable
Now, I can't kick out the pain
So, I had to kick you out

You left a painting on the wall
A figure of a woman holding her right arm
You told me once it was your mom
But, how she never quite let go of her alarm

There are things I can forgive
You did all those unforgiveable
Now, I can't kick out the pain
So, I had to kick you out
Track Name: Shreds
Shreds
(Mahru)

A picture's all that I have
There's nothing left to hold on to
Standing by the canyon
Smiling as the birds fly by
And I'm behind the camera watching as your blue eyes cloud up just like the sky
You were always sad like that
And the pictures lie
Because they only show the smile

Tear it up, throw it away, let it go now
Tear it up, throw it away, let it go now

Never thought I'd lose you
A love so true, broken clean in two
You're backing out the driveway
Melding words to say goodbye
I'm standing in the doorway
My heart is dropping, a thousand feet down
I've never felt as sad as that
And words just fail to show..the pain inside

Tear it up, throw it away, let it go now
Tear it up, throw it away, let it go now

[break]

And as the years fly by, I see your face less
in my dreams
I never thought it'd come to this
But shredding all your pictures
just made sense
You moved in with a lover
Said you're engaged to be married in a year
You hope that I'll be there
But, I know I won't
Cause that would..that would feel like hell

Tear it up, throw it away, let it go now
Track Name: Space Cadet
Space Cadet
(Mahru)

Space cadet, where have you gone?
There's an empty chair where you belong
Adjust a light up in the sky
To let me know that you survived

And did you find what you were
looking for in space?
And did the distance bring you
closer to that place?
Do you dream that you are home
and in your bed
And just pretend you're not in orbit any more

We miss you when you're not around
Feet planted firmly on the ground
You had to prove your wax and wings
To fly you closer to your dreams

And did you find what you were
looking for in space?
And did the distance bring you
closer to that place?
Do you dream that you are home
and in your bed
And just pretend you're not in orbit any more

[Countdown]

Space cadet, where are you now?
I hope to hear from you somehow
I think about you every night
Beneath the stars all shining bright

Did you find what you were
looking for in space?
Did the distance bring you
closer to that place?
Do you dream that you are home
and in your bed
And just pretend you're not in orbit any more

Orbit any more
Track Name: Zero to Phantom
Zero to Phantom
(Mahru)

Zero, are you there?
We lost your signal, now we're scared
Did you lose your way?
Flying 'cross the milky way
Milky way

Please come home tonight Please come home tonight
Please come home tonight Zero to phantom, I'm all right
I'm all right

Phantom, here I am
The ship was damaged I can't land
I'm spinning 'round in space
A beautiful but lonely place, this place
A lonely place

Please come home tonight Please come home tonight
Please come home tonight Zero to phantom, I'm all right
I'm all right

[Solo]

We're holding out for just a sign
Zero, please drop us a line
Send a rescue craft in time
Zero, please just stay alive

Please come home tonight Please come home tonight
Please come home tonight Zero to phantom, I'm all right
I'm all right
Track Name: Sounds of Chrysler
Sounds of Chrysler
(Mahru)

I've been driving around
and the streets they all look sad sad sad
I kept your letter on the dash
Oncoming lights remind me of your eyes

And how they shine,
now they shine for someone else
And still they shine
Now they shine for someone else

The radio is playing love songs
But, I can't sing along tonight
Lovers making dedications, around the world, yeah
I'll dedicate this song to you

And how you shine,
now you shine for someone else
And still you shine, shine
Now you shine for someone else

And if the road we're travelling
leads us back together
I'll know that our time spent apart
was necessary
So, in our adventure, sometimes all seems lost
I'll endeavor just to keep on driving


And I've been driving around
and the streets they all look sad sad sad
And so I roll the window down
And I watch your letter float away, away
(Away) (Away)

I've been driving around
And the streets they all look sad sad
sad sad sad
Track Name: Whale
Whale
(Mahru)

Are you ready to fight
the battles long and lonely
Take another deep breath,
a thousand steps await you

We'll search every ocean for what we lost
We'll climb every mountain no matter the cost
There's a glimmer of truth in every tall tale
Launch 100 ships in search of the Whale

Is there something lost
Or waiting to be found
A persistant nag
A feeling deep down

We'll search every ocean for what we lost
We'll climb every mountain no matter the cost
There's a glimmer of truth in every tall tale
Launch 100 ships in search of the Whale

A mysterious voice
Calling out from within
Your epic journey
Waiting to begin

We'll search every ocean for what we lost
We'll climb every mountain no matter the cost
There's a glimmer of truth in every tall tale
Launch 100 ships in search of the Whale

[SOLO]

We'll search every ocean for what we lost
We'll climb every mountain no matter the cost
There's a glimmer of truth in every tall tale
Launch 100 ships in search of the Whale

We'll search every ocean (Ahhhh ahhh)
We'll climb every mountain (Ahhhh ahhh)
There's a glimmer of truth (Ahhhh ahhh)
Launch 100 ships (Ahhhh ahhh)
Track Name: Don't Break My Heart Again, George Lucas
Don't Break My Heart Again, George Lucas
(Mahru)

I've been let down before and I know I don't like it
I take a chance, I hold out my hand
to you standing there, quiet and cold-hearted
You don't give an inch, you don't give a damn

You shine your light down on me
Blinding my eyes, I can't see
Filling my heart with your dreams
George, now I truly believe

Don't break my heart, you know I can't take it
I try to have faith, but you let me down
I hear your words, you know you can't fake it
You let me down, will you break my heart?

You shine your light down on me
Blinding my eyes, I can't see
Filling my heart with your dreams
George, now I truly believe

Tell me now
Will you let me down?
Tell me now
Will you break my heart?

I'll give you a chance, please don't fail me
I'll open my eyes, what will I see?
A grand mystery, the great illusion
You pull the strings, you cast the spell


You shine your light down on me
Blinding my eyes, I can't see
Filling my heart with your dreams
George, now I truly believe
Track Name: Season Finale
Season Finale
(Mahru)

She said it's not so easy
But, we will be all right
At the end of the story
when we bow and say good night

She says there's three acts finished
There's blood on the stage
The audience is leaving
Their applause starts to fade

At the end of the season we will run away
At the end of the season we will run away

She said she's tired of spotlights
She's tired of fame
She's tired of pretending
She wants to run away

When no one knows us
Where she is just a face
We're an anonymous couple
Is there such a place?

At the end of the season we will run away
At the end of the season we will run away

This is the finale and you won't see anything else
This is the finale and you won't see anything else
This is the finale and you won't see anything else
[Solo]

At the end of the season we will run away
At the end of the season we will run away
At the end of the season we will run away
Run away
