Track Name: The Tuck
You're beautiful
When you're breaking your back
You're a lot like me
Why's your face so sad

You're beautiful
With a broken back
You can change your sex your sex your sex
And you can change your past

And if you don't,
You don't say something
I'll say something
Someone's gotta say it soon
x2

You're black and blue
And you prefer bare feet
There's a twinkle in your eye
Yeah you're a lot like me

You're a little bruised
But the fruits so sweet
You can change your sex
And you can set me free


And if you don't,
You don't say something
I'll say something
Someone's gotta say it soon
x2

Her legs held the tower up
The moon was in her eyes
The city loves a pretty girl
A girl with a surprise

She left her home so far away
Where sand was clean and white
And she wonders if he really knows
If he believes the lie

The truth was in her eyes
Whats in between your thighs?

And if you don't,
You don't say something
I'll say something
Someone's gotta say it soon
x4
Track Name: Brendan Fraser's Last Stand
The lyrics are a modified version of Emily Dickinson beautiful poem "If I Should Die"

If I should die and you should live
And time should gurgle on
And morn should beam and noon should burn
As it has Always done

If the barrow keeps on burning
If smoke rings should still blow
I wont shed a single tear
Watching from below

I'm not sure, I can't really tell
If all of my friends can meet and play in hell
I've fallen so far, i'm not sure where I fell
We must never meet again just know I wish you well

'Tis sweet to know my home will stand
When we with daisies lie
Will they play my instruments
And keep my pets alive?

May parting be tranquil
May soul be serene
When the sun comes crashing down
On all my hopes and dreams

I'm not sure, I can't really tell
If all of my friends can meet and play in hell
I've fallen so far, i'm not sure where I fell
We must never kiss again just know I'll miss you, know I wish you well
Track Name: Pintail Hen's Theme
I felt summer flying by, I've felt winter taking hold
The hardest harvest of my life, a harvest of my soul
I'm growing old before i know we'll all be buried in the snow
A bitter cold this Californians never known

if you had followed me you know I would have followed you
Down any dim lit avenue
tried any drug that you might do
my love for you is all i knew
my love for you is all i knew

I't doesn't matter if it true x2

You'll live for it and you'll die for it
And you'll fuck for it and lie for it

It doesn't matter if it true x2

You'll need for it and you'll bleed for it
And you'll kill for it if you believe in it

It doesn't matter if it true x2

I saw the ending coming neigh, I felt winter taking hold
I saw the angels in the sky, a harvest of my soul
I'm growing old before I know we'll all be buried in the snow
A bitter cold this Californians never know

The crazy things that I would do
The promises I'd break for you
The things that people put you through
The things that people put you through

I't doesn't matter if it true x2

You'll live for it and you'll die for it
And you'll fuck for it and lie for it

It doesn't matter if it true x2

You'll need for it and you'll bleed for it
And you'll kill for it if you believe in it

It doesn't matter if it true x2
Track Name: Exotica
The wolf is hiding in the sheep
And seeks to eat them while they sleep
Your tongue is poison on your teeth
While eating cake and sipping tea

The embers yellow in the pot
The hateful thoughts were burning hot
To bow to dogs and pray to frauds
To melt the gold to make a god

The dancers are dancing and the rhythm is murder
See you standing in the corner of a crowded theater
I see computer reactions, I see complex equations
Watching life from the window of my orbital station

The wolf is hiding in the street
It's slow to creep and never free
The product robs your feet from sleep
Compelled to dance you feed the scene

The embers yellow in the pot
The hateful thoughts were burning hot
To bow to dogs and pray to frauds
To melt the gold to make a god

The dancers are dancing and the rhythm is murder
See you standing in the corner of a crowded theater
I see computer reactions, I see complex equations
Watching life from the window of my orbital station

Of my orbital station
Of my orbital station
Track Name: Free Cheese
Five years in a post-apocalyptia
Three years in a concentration camp
Four years of crippling dystopia
A whole life to make it count

I know i'm old for this material
I am incapable of math
I know terrorist threats are serious
Gay sex at astro camp

I am a detriment to
Other students education
I will never contribute
Artists will bleed this nation

Dry, I cry
I want fly my kite
and get paid to do whatever
I feel like

The office is only a few blocks away
From my apartment building
So I can get that government plastic
Fill my fridge to the ceiling

Always wanted to be an astronaut
Long division had to stop me
One day i'm gonna sell a record
Till then i'm serving coffee

I am a detriment to
Other students education
I will never contribute
Artists will bleed this nation

Dry, I cry
I want to ride my bike
And get paid to go wherever
I feel like

I am a detriment to
Other students education
I will never contribute
Artists will bleed this nation

Take it from me
Don't you be a worker bee
When you can eat up all that honey
All for free
Track Name: Doug Funnie Goes to the Beach
I wanna ride the coast again
Salty air good for my skin
And i'm not sure if it's a sin
The smoke in my lungs is my best friend

So hide the drugs
And clear my name
Put me on an aeroplane
It's time to leave the U.S.A.
Before I go insane

One day you will regret our friendship
One day you'll need to realize
I am only a mortal man
One day i'm gonna make you cry

I wanna ride the coast again
Salty air good for my skin
And I don't care if it's a sin
The drink in my glass is my best friend

So take the drugs
And clear my name
Put me on an aeroplane
It's time to leave the U.S.A.
Before I go insane

One day you will regret our friendship
One day you'll need to realize
I am only a mortal man
One day i'm gonna make you cry
Track Name: Oister Boi
There's places I should be
Out in the streets there girls to meet
There's food out there to eat
Records to beat and yet I sleep

Twenty twenty twenty two years
Trapped in my bedroom
A prisoner of my fears
Or just a little late to bloom

I huff and puff the day away
The kids my age have gone away
It looks like i am here to stay
Make a change one day but not today

No not today x4

Little oyster boy inside my shell
Afraid to ride the swell
In between bookshelves
No room for no one else

I huff and puff the day away
The kids my age have gone away
It looks like i am here to stay
Make a change one day but not today

No not today x4

Your mother fills the carpet full of holes
The couch has molded to her form
Her roots are deep inside your home
Try not to fill them when shes gone

Sometimes you've got to grind
To sharpen up before you die
To find your peace of mind
Or kill yourself while killing time

Don't waste you're time x4
Track Name: Mckenzie Pass (Remastered)
The trees they grew so tall
I climbed the trunk so high
The leaves were white and frosty
Even in July

Some will come from Oregon
Some from Mexico
My doctor says I'll never heal
This life is all I'll know

Molly was a dancer
We danced the night away
Lucy was a painter
Left me feeling rather gray

The road fell out before me
It blew my mind away
My baby stands beside me
She reminds me every day

The devils a deceiver
Spreading viscous lies
The things they say about my love
They make me want to cry

But me and mine know better
We took the time to know
I'd spread the seeds for lovely trees
Most anywhere I'd go

Molly was a dancer
We danced the night away
Lucy was a painter
Left me feeling rather gray

The road fell out before me
It blew my mind away
My baby stands beside me
She reminds me everyday

You would like it if you tried it too
Do you do everything they tell you to? x3
Track Name: Study Skills
Oh misses G
You broke the ruler over me
I cant sit still in my seat
The detentions too sweet

What can I say
I cant seem concentrate
I'm a bad bad boy
You need whip into shape

I got all these assignments in silence to do
I got parks and prescriptions and plans with the crew
But I swear that there's nothing that id rather do
Then a one on one session, detention with you

oh oh oh does my age really matter
oh oh oh more man than your Mr.

Oh misses G
You broke the ruler over me
I cant sit still in my seat
The detentions too sweet

What can I say
I cant seem concentrate
I'm a bad bad boy
You need whip into shape

I got all these assignments in silence to do
I got parks and prescriptions and plans with the crew
But I swear that there's nothing that id rather do
Then a one on one session, detention with you
Track Name: L.A.'s Last Day
You and I we should have tried
So many times before
And I cant deny sometime tonight
That ill be at your door

You were born for a different generation
The bright lights they burn your eyes
You should have ruled the world by now
This isn't what you had in mind

This black cloud has covered up city
And your love it is burning its burning its burning
The comedown lower than expected
You and I are lost at sea

I wanna show you something
No one's ever seen before
I want you to really, really know me
No one really knows me any more

You and I we should have died
So many times before
And I can't deny sometime tonight
I'll be at your door

But this time it's different
I feel it, I sense it expect it
The moment its turning and burning
And we keep on drinking
And dancing and singing
The message their sending an era is ending
There's no sense resisting
Wont you please just kiss me
Or beat me decide it
Destroy me I like it
I swear I won't fight it
I'm lonely tonight and
Attentions attention attentions attention

I don't want to be alone
When the stars fall from sky
And I don't want to be alone
When I have to say goodnight tonight goodnight goodnight goodnight
Track Name: Station Wagon
So far away
Where no one knows my name
No one to blame
I ran away today

Nine hundred miles away
The pain remains
Inside my brain
A broken state

The road keeps winding
On and on
And on Avalon
is so long gone

I'll make the great
One day I say
I play my games
I waste away

I will not slave
No not today
I cannot stay
I cannot Stay

This was my stone
I called my home
No place to call
My lonely one

When all I knew
Was broken through
My home was in my
Tennis shoes

The road keeps winding
On and on
And on Avalon
is so long gone

I'll make the great
One day I say
I play my games
I waste away

I will not slave
No not today
I cannot stay
I cannot Stay
