Track Name: All Cornballs Must Perish
Everybody’s wearing tight pants today
And looking so fine
Staying up on the new thing
And use the word “like” all the time

I guess you never had a problem
And nothing can make you maudlin
Moving up on the path
You’ll get there anyway so let’s have a laugh

You never tire of adapting
You are the place where it’s happening
And you seem so benign
I would say, do your thing and I’ll do mine

But is it even really your thing?
Or is it just anything?
Do you think it’s even something?
Another hand picks the songs you’re bumping

Guaranteed to make you sway
Guaranteed to make you forget yesterday
So now where to go
You say “I don’t care” when you really mean “I don’t know”

Everybody wants to rule the…
Track Name: Big Time Distraction
If you let me, if you let me, if you let me
I would buy this every day
I would buy this every day

You will tempt me, you always tempt me
Give me games that I can play
Give me food that I can eat
Show me a prize that I won’t win

I will live again, now the key is in my hand
The fix mothers like, it’s the sweetest taste of life

All you people
You perfect people
You excellent people
You make it look so hard
Like you survive by the grace of God

Do you blame me? Do you blame me?
For the crimes that your minds have made?
I’m just trying to avoid the plague
After a while then the sirens fade

I will live again, now the key is in my hand
The fix mothers like, it’s the sweetest taste of life

So give me the job, I will take but I can’t rob
The goal up ahead, until then I must be fed, oh

I don’t know what I wanna do
I just know that it’s gotta get done
Aren’t we having fun?
I don’t know what I wanna do
I just know that it’s gotta get done
Aren’t we having fun?

You could be empty, you could be heavy
Now my pockets are like shells out in the sand
Petrified by the lives they had

I need some action, big time distraction
Let the scenes in my thoughts reveal
If you see it you know it’s real
Move along, don’t you blow the deal

I will live again, now the key is in my hand
The fix mothers like, it’s the sweetest taste of life

So give me the job, I will take but I can’t rob
The goal up ahead, until then I must be fed, oh
Track Name: Six Shooter AKA The History Of Dance
The spark made the action of the universe
It led to what we hold now today
The light hit the water and reflected
We were left at a loss for what to say

The spark made the action of your universe
Back in the days when you boasted
Crush competition like a movie star? No
Cause decades of branding left you toasted

My six shooter's gonna make you dance
My six shooter's gonna make you dance
My six shooter's gonna make you dance
Make you dance
Make you dance

Love was the source of your energy
But you had to keep it held down
Grace under fire til the moment you retire
How readily your face will just frown

Guns are the source of my energy
I feed off assassinated leaders
My fun is watching all the little ants run
They're worried cause they gotta feed the meters

(chorus)

If you and me can keep ourselves together
We can ride this wave wherever we may be
We can hibernate forever in our minds
We can try to make things better one last time
We can ride this wave forever til the boat becomes untethered in our minds

Remember when you started feeling odd
And no drug would make it OK
The weather is your metaphor for God
So you blamed it on a cold winter day

Remember how the elements deceived you
You used to think that it was all good
Nature starting changing up its order, rearranging
Til your truck jewelry turned to wood

(chorus)

(bridge)
Track Name: No Fun
A spirited function to call my own
A warm glowing excitement in a mellow tone
Gonna find a nice time
And call it my own, and call it my own

When I feel it, you feel it
The glare of the crowd
Gotta pay attention, but everything's loud
Really feeling the hate now
All Arabs on a plane
So lame

The culmination of manhood
Closed minds
The origin of my species
Flashing before my eyes
In search of expression, lazy with a frown
Now the fence is taller and the grass is all brown
Fighting to be civil, miles from faith
Too late

Hype over the speakers
Hype all in your zone
Gotta make some impact out there
But never want to be known
Together in our disdain for it
Denying we're the same
Lame
Gotta get your foot in, fronting like the best
Trying to let booze take you there
Oh you're just not fresh

We were getting together, love was tucked away
We all came here for something, but you know
It's just too much to stay
Life ain't shit without a party
Stuck in the traumas of your youth
You're not alone and you know it
Shake yourself and you might get loose now
Girls and boys are making noise
Cars just crash, bloody on the dash
Airplanes fly up in the sky
We're all number one with no fun
We're all number one with no fun
We're all number one, oh yeah
Oh yeah
Track Name: Vultures
Rocking along, I'm singing my favorite song
Watching the world go one way
Catching a drift, a bevy is too heavy to lift
Circling on the runway
Hey, if you want to come my way
Let yourself in, I'll be home
Vultures circle in past the dawn
It won't be long til I'll be gone

You could be mine, I see you at the end of the line
Trying to find your protection
Gotta have faith, just come correct and you can be safe
Happy with my affection
Hey, if you want to come my way
Let yourself in, I'll be home
Vultures circle in past the dawn
It won't be long til I'll be gone

You'll get your questions answered
Find out when you reach a ripe old age
Hide out wherever will ease your mind
In the cloud that forms around you
Cause they're coming fast, they're coming fast
Let's erase all time and turn the past
Into an idea again
If you would only be my friend
All I can offer you is an image
A worn old sketch that I see as a world
A glimpse you can only get from being my girl........ alright
Let the bombs fall, let the fields dry out
Let me hold you, in my arms where it's perfectly alright to cry out... yeah
And when I'm gone, you'll carry on
And when I'm gone, you'll carry on

Taken in stride, okay when swept away by the tide
Keeping my skull selective
Take me sometime, we'll make a mountain when we combine
Why would you ever hesitate?
Hey, if you want to come my way
Track Name: Bad Imagination
Leap of faith, tremble with the breeze
Apart from faith, the fabric is one’s ease
I’m in love with you and it’s too much to bear
The party’s all wrapped up now
And you’re still nowhere

(The intangibles) Blurbs in the ether call me
(We’ve got to chase) Act loud and leave your shell
(Now are visible) Loud thoughts til you can’t remember
(Grinning in your face) Now you’ve got other stories to tell
(So what’s natural) Like that, like that, like that
(Is just what goes down) And you’ve got something for me after all

Bad imagination’s out for me again
Bad imagination’s out for me
Again

Your engulfing smile, your all-too-distant skin
I’m a hungry child staring at the wall again

(Can you handle this?) Blurbs in the ether call me
(Aren’t you a man?) Act loud and leave your shell
(Dream the universe) Tell me an answer
(Focus on the land) Because I really wanna know
(So what’s natural) Like that, like that, like that
(Is just what goes down) And you’ve got something for me after all
Track Name: Jazz Now
Baby, there’s a ocean rushing out the heart inside you
And the water sends a wave that flushes out my bone
Baby, I could paint a thousand words, a Xerox copy
The next man’s shoes
I am in the winner circle with a trophy in my hand
I’ve got you

Cause when I want, when I feel
I will find the light that will make it real
Got the image locked down with an airtight seal
I’m singin’ jazz now

Baby, you’re the pure and loving force that makes the Earth turn
So forgive me I will take you with me down this road
Baby, when it’s time to show I’m drunk and poor and tired
I’ll sing the blues, I’ll sing the blues for you: ahhhh
I’ve got you
Track Name: Rep Where You're From
If you want it, then you need it
You should get it, if you can
You should get it, if you can
If you want it you need it, yeah

"Look what's happening up the street"
Hey, we got a new thing to eat
Hey, we got new clothes to wear
Hey, we got a new time killer to share
For the finest chocolates
For the ethnic fare
It's all in your pocket
You should spread it everywhere
You should spread it everywhere

So X out the colors in the broadcast
Cuss out the little and the small
Shrink wrap the myth and the rumor
Display it in the shopping mall
X out the memory of your home
You tell me it's a very lame place
Show up to try and get a pedigree
And everywhere you see your own face
X out the in between people
Plaster all the holes in the wall
But don't think you really got it right now
P rules them all, P rules them all
P rules them all, yeah

If you want it, then you need it
You should get it, if you can
You should get it, if you can
If you want it you need it, yeah

Not from memories that you’ve
Formed along the way
Grab the spectacle and
You can have it everyday
For the finest chocolates
For the ethnic fare
It's all in your pocket
You should spread it everywhere
Track Name: Morning
I'm treading water and I'm good and tired
When I dip down I feel your hand
I know I need you but I don't know why
You're there no matter where I am
The tide turned slowly and we couldn't explain
What took the sunlight from our skies
Surrounded by debris, the faces remain
The only sight I recognize

I'll meet you in the morning
I'll meet you at your door
I just want you to hear me
I wouldn't ask for more
I'll take you out for supper
I'll make it worth your time
Cause I would love to hear you
Asking...
Will the righteous suffer indefinitely?
Or should strife and sorrow be effortless? please
Let the words just linger in the atmosphere
We'll try to make it good, we'll try to make it good

You ask a price of me I just can't pay
A cold disinterest when I try
Something's calling you to stare my way
But you won't see me eye to eye
Four walls around me at a proper address
The space where I can write my name
For all my efforts to bow out and regress
You're still the apple of my brain

I'll meet you in the morning
I'll meet you at your door
I just want you to hear me
I wouldn't ask for more
I'll take you out for supper
I'll make it worth your time
Cause I would love to hear you
Asking me for mine

Sprung off your surface now there's
Nothing to grab
The clocks will tick inside my grave
You are a magnet to me
The bounty I have
Your arm held out so I was saved
There's something other than the passing of days
The message etched into your glass
A stolen second to be out of that phase
Believing everything will last

I'll meet you in the morning
I'll meet you at your door
I just want you to hear me
I wouldn't ask for more
I'll take you out for supper
I'll make it worth your time
Cause I would love to hear you
Asking...
Will the righteous suffer indefinitely?
Or should strife and sorrow be effortless? please
Let the words just linger in the atmosphere
We'll try to make it good, we'll try to make it good
