Track Name: Idiot
I play my music on my piano
To get away from people who let me down
But those people, they never leave me.
They're just voices in my brain

No one likes to be let down
No one wants to hang around

I play my music on my bass
To get revenge on fishes, the better race
But these fishes, they're happy people
They can only bring me pain

No one likes to be let down
No one wants to hang around

Something really, really means nothing when you're talking to me
And they got something on you and they got something on me
Track Name: Mr. Not-So-Fantastic
Keep on fishin'
I want food
And I'm missing
You

We've been stuck in a forest for three months straight
Something went wrong with the fuel in our rocket plane
And her butt is looking better than ever
Sue's butt is looking better than ever

We're a family from 1961
We stole a spaceship and now we're on the run
And as smart as I am, I am stuck
My big brain isn't a boy scout

Alyssa I'm sorry I left
Alyssa I'm sorry I left
Alyssa I'm sorry I left
It's just a miscalculation I had to get off my chest
Track Name: Pappaw
I've been sad
Been thinking about a dream I had
It was about Pappaw
That's West Virginia speak for grandpa
He passed away again
While I wasted time in California

But I'm happy here
Things are full of cheer
But it doesn't feel so long
Since my Pappaw's been gone

I miss Collis
My dad's middle name is Willis
That was Pappaw
He used to sing me Golden Slippers

And one time
She slipped and fell right on her tit
I vividly remember it
I never laughed so hard
I never laughed so hard
I never cried so hard
I never cried so hard
I never cried so hard
Since you've been gone
Track Name: 5010
Eating out of a fetus head
Of a baby that's been left for dead
I can feel the air burn my skin

We all live off of other folks
Since we thought the bomb was a hoax
My dad says we've solemnly earned this life

My mom has dreams of soap
I've never tasted toast
My uncle tells a joke
Before he steps out to roast

Grandpa talks about a thing called time
And how it helped his piece of mind
I hope he feeds us several meals soon

Sometimes I wonder if we've all died
And this is a twisted afterlife
I wonder if my pet cockroach thinks these things too

My mom has dreams of soap
I've never tasted toast
My uncle tells a joke
Before he steps out to roast

We live in post nuclear hell
We've all lost our sense of smell
Things will never be well
Things will never be well

I heard the sun turned yellow today
But we'll never see it from where we stay
Track Name: Zum
And I liked to eat ham
My mom's ex-husband's name is Sam
He'd always call you in a jam

Zum!

As I wash this dish
I can see a fish
It's ceramic orange
Nothing rhymes with that

Sometimes cats are white and grey
And they really like to lay
Can you text me a different way

Zum!

And a fisherman's teeth
Aren't all that sleek
With their loads of stains
From the yellow rain

Sometimes its fun to sing a song
And my wife she'll dance a long
I'm gonna go hacksaw a log

Zum!
Track Name: Halfmas
I wrote this song just for you
And all the good things that you do
I'm just a lot in love with you
I wouldn't say it if it weren't true

And as the days go by
I find that I love you more
Than I did the day before

Remember when we went to the show
Daniel made that shirt you didn't know
We made our way to the front row
In between acts, I proposed

And as the days go by
I find that I love you more
Than I did the day before

My love for you will never go dry
I am yours and you are mine

I can't wait to turn old and grey
Then we'll have nothing more to say
We'll use our eyes and talk that way

And as the days go by
I find that I love you more
Than I did the day before
Track Name: For Max
I heard your voice, it was like a dream
And I see in you the best of things
But you refuse to believe
That I'm the only one that you need

Wake up
Get stuffed
Please stay
Go away

If only it were that plain

I have some things that I'd like to say
But you made it clear paper don't fly that way
And sometimes I feel like the last man on Earth
Other times i feel just like the first

Wake up
Get stuffed
Please stay
Go Away

If only it were that plain

Have a chat with the rain
I need to clean my brain
She's probably insane
She's probably insane
Have a chat with the rain
I need to clean my brain
She's probably insane
She's probably insane

And I'm close than I've ever been before
To people
Track Name: We Jumped Over Cows
It was the dawning of a new age
The fall of 2008
I had a crappy job
And I was a giant slob

Music died when the summer had passed
Life turned to deification fast
My wife grew really ill
Everyone's voice became shrill

I miss the days when we jumped over cows
Not really caring because we didn't know how
And I'm happy and I'm sad you're not lonely in a crowd
But I'll always miss the costumes and you playing so loud

Now we've hit 2009
And I've got less reason to whine
Ramon and I made comic books
Signing those was off the hook

And my wife is much better now
Since pneumonia isn't hanging around
Without her I would have lost my head
I kind of like those vows we said

And I miss the days when we jumped over cows
Not really caring because we didn't know how
And I'm happy and I'm sad you're not lonely in a crowd
But I'll always miss the music and you playing so loud

Why won't you, Why won't you take me back (take me back)
Why won't you, Why won't you take me back (take me back)

Has anyone see the future
I bet some wish they hadn't

But I don't care what they say
I'm gonna live for today
Track Name: Benjamin Jones
Benjamin Jones where were you that fateful day
Out on the playground, where your mom told you to stay
Your brothers and sisters and family all went away

But all you ever wanted was to be a good kid
And only you knew what it was like to be a human
You're parents cried out of their arm pits when the mothership left

Benjamin Jones could fly at the age of 12
Benjamin Jones only trusted himself
As hundreds of years went by he watched too many good friends die

But all he ever wanted was to be a good kid
And only he knew what it was like to be a human
His parents still cry out of their arm pits when they think of what they did

Benjamin Jones now rules earth
At the age of 352 he started to tell people what to do
He told his parents "Go eat dirt!"
When they came to explain they left and get their baggage off their chest
Track Name: Head Exploded
It's pretty obvious your head's exploded
And in the meanwhile your heart's imploded
And in the distance is a lonely man
He's kicked over his only can

The metal's worn off of my old boots
Because I kicked the tree down to its roots
And in China they use their hands
To kill babies unless it's a man

And all the scientists have shut their mouths
Because they realized they're all cows
In the dawn of a setting sun
There's no way we could have won

The grim reaper comes 'cuz it's my time
He doesn't give me any spiel or rhyme
I'm uppercutted to my doom
Hello, pit! I'll see you soon

I ripped off
This part
From some friends
Who were cars

And all the scientists have shut their mouths
Because they realized they're all cows
In the dawn of a setting sun
There's no way we could have won
