Swinging on a star and the chains get tangled. What a mess. I tried to go higher and faster, and this is what I get. I only wanted to feel the wind rush past me in zero gravity. Hope that I can fly without breathing, and if I can't I think I'll flutter back to the ceiling, and like a champ Chalk it all up to experience, but I'm a novice Space man lost in the clouds Sonic boom too loud Space man fighting gravity it's mad at me and it wants to bring me down I didn't think about the specifics about the flight Think I should check with air traffic, it wasn't bright Because I am not clear for take-off I'm unidentified And soon enough, the jets will be coming to shoot me down So, I better find a way to explain this, or not be found Maybe I'll just try to go higher I'm up in orbit Space man lost in the clouds Sonic boom too loud Space man fighting gravity it's mad at me and it wants to bring me down Space man lost in the clouds Sonic boom too loud Space man fighting gravity it's mad at me and it wants to bring me down

Give me the map to navigate We're notorious now for being late It's not exactly like I lost my way I'm just not sure where it is we're supposed to be Did you remember to fill the tank? Do we need to stop by the bank? Packed the games, and packed the clothes Everything should be set, I suppose Get in the car to travel far Off we go Don't know where we are or where we're headed for and I'll never know If we start to run low on cash We can begin that fortune teller act Look inside the crystal ball take the money and tell them what they want to hear If that's a disaster, that's the breaks We'll make a living from my guitar case And head to where things look the best Hit the gas, and fly out west Get in the car to travel far Off we go Don't know where we are or where we're headed for and I'll never know [Solo] Paying another month of rent Giving the landlord that extra 5 percent So we don't have to sign the lease Daydream about leaving one of these... Insert proper amount of time here. Get in the car to travel far Off we go Don't know where we are or where we're headed for and I'll never know

Stop this horseplay this instant! You're gonna break the chair If I lean back too far I'm gonna crack my skull wide open! See there, look what you did You blame it on me, like I was some kid And now I'm gonna tell your mother! I know she'll probably laugh I'm laughing myself I know, at least it makes a funny memory! You're in deep deep doo doo now Explain this to Lanelle Face it, now we will have to replace it! I wouldn't change this memory Even if I had the opportunity I know and you know Times like these are great I (I) get lost (lost) in my mind When (when) I think (think) of these times I saw you up ahead, switched to the other lane And then I floored the gas and passed you! And in my rear view mirror, I noticed you sped up I laughed. The race for home is now official! Didn't break the speed limit, well really not that much Looked back, and then I signaled with my blinker! Cut you off when it was safe, got home first and grabbed the paper Sat down, and acted like I'd been there all night I wouldn't change this memory Even if I had the opportunity I know and you know Times like these are great I (I) get lost (lost) in my mind When (when) I think (think) of these times [Solo] I (I) get lost (lost) in my mind When (when) I think (think) of these times I (I) get lost (lost) in my mind When (when) I think (think) of these times

I've got the tickets and I'm already packed up to go I'll need to practice a lot before I put on a show And I know the Austin heat will warm me up through my bones Hello, Texas, I know that I'm a long way from home It's not the farthest south I've ever been, but it's still pretty far I'm kinda nervous 'cause I've never tried to play lead guitar And when each night is done, I'll hang out with the guys at the bars Hello, Texas, You'll keep a special place in my heart Hello, Texas Goodbye, Northwest 3 days, and 4 nights And you guessed it, I'll go there just to get a chance to song fight Some might say that these words are a waste on this song They're probably right, but I know that I'll still say that they're wrong Until I bitch about how all of the lyrics are lame Hello, Texas, by chance could you lend me a brain? Hello, Texas Goodbye, Northwest 3 days, and 4 nights And you guessed it, I'll go there just to get a chance to song fight I'm turning 30, and it's kinda cool, but also it sucks I get to celebrate in Austin, so I'm liking that much I'm not a poet, but I know I do as much as I can Hello, Texas, I'm bound to get sunburned or tan Hello, Texas, I've got long hair, but still I'm a man Hello, Texas, You could probably give a shit who I am

Yeah, it's done now And I'd say that I'm better off Tell me How many faces can a person have? How many times I have to act amused while you laugh? And it's bullshit I know about your half-lies And now Do you even know I found the truth? And do you realize I saw the proof? Step aside, you're in my way I'll roll right over you today And I don't care what you say I'm done with you Fuck off Oh, you had chances And every time you used them up Tell me How many times would you expect me to put up with all of the bullshit I go through? Step aside, you're in my way I'll roll right over you today And I don't care what you say I'm done with you Fuck off I would've never expected that you'd do me wrong the way that you did But, you did, and now I have to admit It's over Goodbye Why is it even now you still can't admit you were wrong It's not my problem any more, so long It's over Goodbye

Just so you know, they're about to kill the lights But, I'd like to thank you for coming here tonight to open mic The performers showed that they were brave And with a beer or two, some even got on stage It's all the rage Don't try to sneak in again if you're underage Thanks for coming It's been a blast, but all good things can't last We'll be here next week So, come again And tell a friend Thanks for coming, and good night
