Track Name: Jaywalker
Who the hell are you?
You're my best friend-of-a-friend
I find you so disgusting
But I didn't always feel the way (and that's okay)

Did you think you had enough of that old life?
Remember that?
That place where we first met?
I woke up from a deep sleep at 80 miles an hour
And there you were
Already disagreeing with yourself
We found it charming

Curiosity became intrigue
Which then turned into laughter
And then awe...

A solid week of learning all your riddles
And we couldn't help but beg you to ask them again
But I was horrified by the void I didn't realize existed
Until you filled it without asking

That's your gift - And what a gift!
But remember that it's meant for
Me - not you - me - not you - me - not you
Me - not you - me - not you - me - not you

It's our enlightenment
Not your dream - not pleasing yourself
Or was I wrong?

It didn't make much difference for some years
Until I saw your face again
I couldn't believe how much you changed
What happened to you, man?
Get a grip!
It so embarrassing what you do... dressed like that...

How dare you change!
How dare you charm me and then change!
Your job was to inspire me
Not make me sympathize with you!
I don't care! I DON'T CARE!

But now we're in the open...
I gotta say other people may
Like you better this way
That's all well and good
But we know both you should
Give it a rest sometime...

Me - not you - me - not you - me - not you
Me - not you - me - not you - me - not you
Me - not you - me - not you - me - not you...
Track Name: GWB
I'm on the right track to see the temples of gray
All killing the sky - it's pulling me back
I can't help but think I made a mistake
But then I come home again
Sailing down green avenues

All these people breathing
Can't see what they're seeing

I'm plastered and petrified - I got a big tent
The moon roof reveals the stars up above
I'm hearing them stir in bushes nearby
And feel like they're family
Shiver cold but I'm at home

All these people breathing
Their sweat is revealing
Track Name: Gray Area
It was an honor getting to meet Jim
World renowned god of database design
Since I deal daily with trillions of numbers
He helped us out from time to time

A few days after the last time I saw him
I turned on the news - shocked to see his face
He sailed on the bay to scatter his mother's ashes
Then he and his boat vanished without a trace

A month of valiant searching had to end
He was never ever seen again...
Track Name: Pipe
When I die
Don't bury me
Or cremate me
Chop me up
And stuff me down a one inch pipe.
Track Name: Drips
Keep it inside
Don't let on you're worried or people will eat you alive
Don't let us know
The lame circumstance or your weakness will show

All that you have and all that you feel
Nobody listens if words are too real
So paste on a smile and wipe off that brow
The moment is now
Get yourself in shape somehow

Open your eyes
And put down that napkin it's obvious that you just cried
We understand
But we're simply too busy to play out this hand

Of all that you have and all that you feel
Nobody listens if words are too real
So paste on a smile and wipe off that brow
The moment is now
Get yourself in shape somehow
Somehow...
Track Name: Doom Broom
Look into my eyes with your dustbin lies
Sweep sweep do the creepy creep deep floor jive
J-j-j-j-jam ma'am your logic doesn't stand
Baby baby I'm your main mountain man

Doom broom - Hit me with your sticky sticky stick
Doom broom
Doom broom - Push me in a pile super quick
Doom broom

Disco!

Dig into my brain with your straw straw veins
Straw straw veins str-str-str-str-straw mama
Do the twist turn with the carpet burn
Don't you ever ever ever learn like your uncle Vern

Doom broom...
Track Name: No Kill Shelter
I get some shelter and food
And reminder every day that
Nobody wants me

I have no concept of death
But one thing's very clear
That nobody wants me

Big monkeys keep me here
They seem so proud of themselves
But nobody wants me
Nobody wants me
Nobody wants me
Nobody wants me...
Track Name: The Waxman
Angels in bright colors
Virgins stand there smothered
Me all alone under bright light in a big throne

Demons in deep darkness
Can't see through the carcass
I made you all and you're stuck there in the main hall

Pose! Pose! Dammit pose!
(and you can't blink.. and you can't blink..)
Track Name: Adventures in Science!
I don't like your head
Your attitude
Absolutes in particular
I don't wanna know
Your thesis code
Big balloon that's full of hot air

Oh don't make me
No don't make me
No don't make me
No don't make...

Angels in the sky
They're looking down
Shoulder shrug 'cuz you're secular
Oh don't get me wrong
I hate the church
Pedophiles all full of hot air

Oh don't make me
No don't make me
No don't make me
No! Don't!
Track Name: 10 Days in Berlin
Feels like I'm buried alive
Strange because I just arrived
Or have I been here before?

At least I have my weird friends
Who see things through a bright lens
They get to leave - I sleep on the floor

Working with you is like 10 days I lost in Berlin
Waiting until I could fly

Hoping for change is like 10 days I lost in Berlin
Knew you're too smart not to lie

I see you acting like a movie star
In your two dollar clothes
Why'd you tell me to eat this crap
(Scharf - ohne Tomaten)
The indigestion throes…
(Mit Senf und Zwiebeln)

Working with you is like 10 days I lost in Berlin
Hoping for change is like 10 days I lost in Berlin
Running the clock is like 10 days I lost in Berlin
Don't bother - you'll never die…

Scharf - ohne Tomaten - mit Senf und Zwiebeln
Scharf - ohne Tomaten - mit Senf und Zwiebeln
Scharf - ohne Tomaten - mit Senf und Zwiebeln
Scharf - ohne Tomaten - mit Senf und Zwiebeln...
Track Name: You Should Leave
Who are all your crazy friends?
Don't recognize them or their clothes
Did they come up from the city south?
Why does that one have a bloody nose?

I'll ask nice - saying please
Grab your coats - you should leave

We don't appreciate them flailing about
Or dry humping each other on the floor
They might knock something over you know
Allow me to show you the door

It was nice before y'all came
Now it's all ruined...
