Track Name: One Day I'll Be Your Ears
You scream and you shout and you fight and you cuss
You always look out but you never look at us
You smile and you cheer and pretend you can hear
One day I'll be your ears, one day I'll be your ears

The tree in the ground it grows up in the sky
It live a long time and eventually dies
The seeds in the dirt get turned into a church
With sermons that nobody hears, one day I'll be your ears

The future will come and eventually pass
You'll go where you'll go and you'll last if you last
You'll be broken up into all kinds of stuff
Adding up all of the years, one day I'll be your ears
Track Name: Rabbits In The Fields
There's times when woodchucks don't give a fuck about anything
There's times when fuzzy animals can't bring a summer time to you

Those rabbits jumping around in the fields
They don't know how to feel they don't know how to feel

Those mountains majesty, they don't do much of anything
In fact they're cracking right down the seams, and falling in the sea

Those rabbits jumping around in the fields
They don't know how to feel they don't know how to feel

Those men in uniform, they run down bombs and stuff
I cannot possibly understand
There's only so much time left to be living in this land, in this land

Those rabbits jumping around in the fields
They don't know how to feel they don't know how to feel
Track Name: The Zombies
We've been digging up bodies in the back of the church for a really long time
We know that we've gotta stop but we just can't stop as much as we try

And the zombies love me, but I keep feeding them

You've been looking out the window watching us pile dead bodies on the ground
You've been hiding in your room for a long long time not making a sound

And the zombies love me, but I keep feeding them

There's only one way out of this place and I don't think I have the guts
Looking up out of this hole I've dug I can't believe I dug so much

And the zombies love me, but I keep feeding them
Track Name: The Glow
Here in this house, we drink and we smoke
Tell dirty jokes, all night long
Then we lay down, on couches and floors
And when we wake up, we do our chores

Here in this house, you gotta try hard to dream
Find somewhere clean, to lay down your head
We're always up, the lights always on
The curse of the glow, is a blessing for some

Sometimes I wish I was by myself (x4)

Here in this house, we're falling in love
Building a thing, to be proud of
Figuring out, how far we can go
Burning things down, warmed by the glow
Track Name: More Time To Read
She's never coming back, I'm gonna face the fact
She's never coming back to me
I'm gonna be alone, nobody on the phone
Maybe now I'll have more time to read

But I'd rather be distracted
Peace of mind is over-rated
Maybe I'll invite her over again
So that she can tell me we're real good friends

She's never coming back, I'm gonna face the fact
Maybe now I'll have more time to read
Track Name: Infinite Jest
My mouth moves faster than my conscience
My brain moves slower than my ears
I gotta learn to tell the difference
Between a couple and a bunch of beers

I didn't care about the future
Until it turned into today
I never dreamed that I'd get tired
And so I gave my bed away

In front of one foot I put the other one
I move slowly but I've gone far
My eyes got blinded by the setting sun
Now I can barely see the stars

I didn't know where I was going
Until I found out where I was
So I set myself on fire
Keep me warm till morning comes
Track Name: I Could Fall In Love
I could fall in love with someone like you
I could do the silly things that someone in love would do
I could climb a mountain high or cross the ocean blue
I could write a love song if I wrote it for you

There's a lot of people who say love's dead
In a crazy world like this there's just no room for it
Back before you looked into my eyes I must admit
I thought all those love songs were a bit full of shit

But now I think I understand the reason
I see these people holding hands
And when I think about you leaving
That's a thought that I can't stand

But if you could fall in love with someone like me
Nothing in this universe could wriggle in between
We could take the world on or just lay in bed and dream
We could do anything
With someone like you and me
Track Name: I Hate I Want
I hate the weekend
I hate your boyfriend
All I want to do is go to work
All I want to do is kill that jerk

I hate my country
I hate my family
All I want to do is go to bed
All I want to do is lose my head

I hate my body
I hate being hungry
All I want to do is something right
All I want to do is sleep at night
Track Name: Diplomatic Boner
I got a diplomatic boner, for all the people in the world tonight
I'm a punk rock hootchie coochie, I don't think that I will ever die

I'm fighting for the free world, free world
I'm fighting for the free world, free world

Love springs eternal, a man and a robot, making little robo-babies

Funny thing about the future, well every body says its never gonna come
I kinda think it doesnt matter, my baby she already got some

And now she's fighting for the free world, free world
And now she's fighting for the free world, free world

And the we started fighting, the ones who make us slaves
And then it started raining, on bodies in the graves
And zombies started walking, and getting in our way
The battle for the free world, continues till today
Track Name: Lights Out Vol. 2
Wake up early every day and eat a bowl of sand
Take a walk around the block with your shoes on your hands
Police sirens singing songs by Robert Zimmerman
Lately I've been thinking about how

Maybe I should get away
All my normal things are strange
I've been staring up into the sun
I don't see so good now

Take a spoon and scoop my eyeballs out onto my plate
Get an up close view of my tongue seeing how they taste
Share my recipe with the entire human race
Make a million dollars on it

Maybe I should get away
All my normal things are strange
I've been staring up into the sun
I don't see so good now (x3)

Holy books by modern crooks are planted in my head
Yogi virgin daughters thank based god for what we did
Little pickled blues and browns inside my cabinet
Looking for somebody hungry

Maybe I should get away
All my normal things are strange
I've been staring up into the sun
I don't see so good now
Track Name: Song About Songs
This is a song for the week, this is a thing that I wrote
It's not particularly good, but it'll do I suppose
I'm running out of ideas, found I've got nothing to say
Or rather the things that I do, I'd like to keep hidden away

I've written songs about love, songs about things that I hate
This is a song about songs, I'm trying to get on with my day
I used to think I was good, now I just think I'm ok
It doesn't matter who's wrong, only my friends hear me play

This is just something I do, this is a habit of mine
I can do other things too, its hard to get on with my day
I wanna build a big house, a place we can all get along
I gotta get get out of this van, I gotta finish this song
