Track Name: Big Rock Head
Hate is good
Love is bad
I got the message
From the big rock head
Sweet as melon
Fresh as bread
Get all wrapped up
In the big rock head

◊ chorus
We don't to live forever
We just want to get together
I speak to you...

We are the chosen
We rule the land
We are the children
Of the big rock head
And if we see you
You'd better run
I'm on a mission
I've got a gun

◊ chorus

Control the brutals
Deliver grain
And take a woman
In his name
Go forth and kill
That's what it said
I got a message
From the big rock head

◊ chorus 2x
Track Name: A Place Of Our Own
Between the sky and pavement
Through my window encasement
I look out on the busy avenue
Suddenly there you're walking
I find myself just gawking
Not even time to take a picture of you

◊ chorus
We don't have to go it alone
We'll get a place of our own
Where no one can find us we'll just fade away
And under the sky's dying light
We become part of the night
And come back to life with the breaking of day

Taxis and trees obscure you
If I were there I'm sure you'd
Fall the way I've seemingly fell
I'd give my very life to
Somehow just be beside you
Knowing you're going somewhere I will be as well

◊ chorus

Almost out of my vision
I must make a decision
'Cause I was not expecting to fall in love today
Now is the time for action
To satisfy this attraction
Because in a moment you will have gone away

◊ chorus
Track Name: Come On Babe
Order the same damn thing
This restaurant is such a bore
And every new movie we see
Seems like the same ones we saw before
What's on the TV
I really don't give a damn
All I want is my just desserts
That's just how I am
(a sweet tooth man)

◊ chorus
I don't need a season pass to ride you every day
I don't have a hammer but I'll bang you anyway
I don't have a carpet but I'll shag you wall to wall
Come on babe, you can have it all
Come on babe, we can do it all

Talk and talk and talk
And say nothing at all
Spend all your money
Buying nothing Down at the Mall
I'm not concerned with your status
or nomenclature
I am the trespasser
It's in my nature
(He had a pumpkin for a head)

◊ chorus

Hear the voice on the radio
Don't disobey Marvin Gaye
The reason they play that song so much
I request it every day
Laying in bed with you
Catch our breath and then
Take a pull from the bottle
Before we go again

◊ chorus
Track Name: Japanese Lovebots On Parade
From Kyoto to Tokyo
Japanese tech is set to blow
Lovebots tired of servicing dudes
They've got something else to do
Robot sex slaves on display
Sick and tired of sex for pay
All lined up and ready to fight
Robot sex slaves want their rights!

◊ chorus
Japanese lovebots on parade
Japanese lovebots on parade
Japanese lovebots on parade
Japanese lovebots on parade

American robots kill kill kill
Japanese tech is meant to thrill
When they just don't want it no more
Japanese lovebots are worse than war!
Robot apocalypse in the streets
Showing they're not metal meat
Teledyne has nothing on them
Japanese lovebots want revenge

◊ chorus
Pocky pocky don't want no cookie
Cylon skin job wants no nookie
You love them but you know they hate ya
They're razor sharp and will emasculate ya
When you can't go get you some
If you build it they will make you come
The smarter we get the more we find
The things we make want to kill man kind

◊ chorus
Track Name: Gerth Grrrls
Goth girls are fuzzy like kitten
Hipster girls are a whimsical kind
Rock girls are carefree and gentle
Geek girls are smiles for miles

Sugar and spice and everything nice

Black dyed hair, industrial-strength makeup,
A general lack of consciousness for societal decency

Sugar and spice and everything nice

Ugly vintage clothing, horn-rimmed glasses
And no visible indication of the massive amount
of caffeine they have consumed

Sugar and spice and everything nice

Hacked up Motley Crue t-shirts, ratted bleached hair
and a possible rap sheet filled with misdemeanors

Sugar and spice and everything nice

Hello Kitty everything, hand-painted lord of the rings figurines
and a DVR packed with episodes of so you think you have talent
contest shows
Track Name: A Drinking Song
Come gather around aristocrats, executives, and heirs
I've got an anecdote I'd like to share
Freshen your champagne and scotch on the rocks
I'm the valedictorian from the school of hard knocks
My first wife's in hell, my second's in Milan
The third is on Capri with some model named Juan
My fourth wife just left me she no longer cares
To hear of my extra-marital affairs

◊ chorus
Please hold all my calls
I'll be with my chums one and all
We're swimming in brandy and gin
Where the riff-raff can't get in
Hoist another one down at the club
(One, Two, Three...) is never enough
Tell my lawyer and broker I'm in a meeting
Give my mistress my love

I sold my yacht and mortgaged my estate
When the market tanked back in 2008
Converted my assets to Euros and Yen
The Dollar will come back, I just don't know when

I'm buried in negative earnings per share
Thank God I paid zero taxes last year
Inside trading's got me worried and blue
About what the FTC might want to do

◊ chorus

Excuse my demeanor I've had no coffee today
Those Occupy bastards were blocking the cafe
Forbes released the list of the wealthiest men
And I ain't been on it since 2010

Bernie's in jail and Trump's on TV
Steve Jobs is dead and I wish it were me
I have these troubles dancing around in my head
They keep me up at night on my magnetic floating bed

◊ chorus

If at this very moment things don't start to go right
They'll be cleaning my brains off the Renoir tonight

Track Name: Holy Fire
Over jagged mountainsides
Under swirling clouds above
My spirit will come for you
My love my love my love
Though your mind may think I'm gone
In your soul you hear my song
Your convictions were wrong
All along along along

◊ chorus
Holy fire in my wake
My soul is not for them to take
The hungry claws that tear my flesh
Will not pull me down again

Pull the shutters draw the blinds
Betray your fears and close your eyes
Those silly books that hypnotize
Are lies are lies are lies
Lilith in the garden
Lilith in the fire
Son and familiar incubus
Am I am I am I

◊ chorus 2x
Track Name: Bonus Ship 2013
Bonus ship I've got a bonus ship
I've got a pretty sky blue bonus ship
I got a bonus ship I got a bonus ship
What kind of bonus ship? It's a blue bonus ship!

Bonus ship he got a bonus ship
He got two thousand points and got a bonus ship
We were across the street on a donut trip
We didn't get our bonus ship

◊ chorus
Mother ship clouds
Chemical skies
Spectral range wars
Hovering lights
Circles in the field
Triangles in the night
Granular patterns
Absence of time

Bonus ship I got a bonus ship
Don't you wish that you had a bonus ship?
It's my bonus ship not your bonus ship
I got myself a bonus ship

Bonus ship he got a bonus ship
He got another god damn bonus ship
We were across the street not as lucky as you
We spend all our money on Motley Crue

◊ chorus

Bonus ship I've got a bonus ship
I'm blowing away aliens with my bonus ship
I got a bonus ship I got a bonus ship
What kind of bonus ship? It's my bonus ship.

Bonus ship he got a bonus ship
That sorry motherfucker got a bonus ship
What a trip another bonus ship
What kind of bonus ship? His bonus ship

◊ chorus
Track Name: All Summer Long
Hang around the coffee shop
I read and old book or two
Waiting for my friends to drop by
Staring at a vintage photo of you

All summer long
All summer long
All summer long

Type a letter on my T-99
I picked it up at a second hand store
Sitting here going out of my mind
I don't really know what I'm waiting here for

All summer long
All summer long
All summer long

Think I had little too much caffeine
I'm pretty sure someone's stolen my phone
Pick up a Blender magazine
I guess I'm just going to sit here alone

All summer long
All summer long
All summer long...
