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

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
3.
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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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)

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

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
