Track Name: Got It Coming
GOT IT COMING: I got it coming, we got it coming but I got it coming more than you think. Long haired bully with attitude. Oh no, nothing to lose. Red headed mystic with blinded views. Oh no, nothing to lose. I got it coming, we got it coming but I got it coming more than you think. Little Napoleon full of abuse. Oh no, nothing to lose. Straight laced prophet has no clue. Oh no, nothing to lose. Someone get me out of here.
Track Name: Audible Beat
AUDIBLE BEAT: It’s a standard to them, could be a standard to you but it’s a standard these days. I hear it. Rudy’s lost his groove. Can’t turn it on low and can’t turn it on high. We need an audible beat. It’s a single to them, could be a single to you but it’s single these days. I can hear it. Calypso lost his tune. Can’t turn it on low, can’t turn it on high. We need an audible beat. So many choruses how do you know when to sing along. We need an audible beat. It’s a hit to them, could be a hit to you but it’s a hit these days I can hear it. Jimmy lost his moves. You can’t turn it on low, you can’t turn it on high. We need an audible beat. He plays solitaire on his piano. He only plays that song because no one will ever show. You can’t measure measures when you play alone. How did you learn that song with out a stereo ? We need an audible beat.
Track Name: Bunga Bungaland
BUNGA BUNGALAND: I want to sleep bung bungaland. I want to talk bro bra. What do you do when the man’s coming down on you? What are you going to say? I’m alright and I’m ok. I want to be in the dead tubes. I want to laugh dumb. What do you do when your life’s passing up on you, what are you going to say? I’m alright and I’m ok. Now is the time for you to get over it. 40 years seems about right. I’m alright and I’m ok.
Track Name: Anonymous
ANONYMOUS: She left me for the island world and I’m anonymous. Vanished like the Rembrandt at the Gardner. So anonymous. It could have been John, Paul or Ringo but I wish it was Georgie. Next time I fall in love I promise, it’ll be anonymous. Got to rent a boat to Belize under anonymous. Recreate the Sea of Galilee signed anonymous. The fab four never had the hang loose sensibility. Next time you fall in love I hope you’re anonymous. Love, love, love is love. Love, love, anonymous. She never took to the island world but now I love it, I love it , I love it so much right now. I’ll stay anonymous. She painted her way back over to Boston but it never worked out. Now she listens to all those records backwards. She’s anonymous.
Track Name: Captain
CAPTAIN: Destroyed me girl one, two deadly heart attacks. Three, four nervous breakdowns. Five, six, seven lobotomies. Eight, nine, ten. My future is tight roping to the beach. The south winds might blow us over the sea. The captain can sit back and drink his wine. As long as he finds our way home. Ruined me girl. One, two blinding headaches. Three, four massive cardiacs. Five, six, seven cacophonies. Eight, nine, ten. my future is tight roping to the beach. The south winds might blow us over the sea. The captain can sit back and smoke his herb. As long as he finds our way home. Oh captain, my captain. Take me back home. Take me back home.
Track Name: Dr. Foster
DR. FOSTER: Pharmacist’s daughter is hooked on pain pills. She doesn’t have anywhere to go. Forged checks and phony paychecks, she might be doing some time. She’s going, gone, gone, gone. She’ll never ever be the same girl. Dr. Foster is codependent. He can only see his little girl. Bad books and hidden secrets. He can’t see his baby cry. He’s going, gone, gone, gone. He’ll never ever be the same man. Despised practice and institutions. They might join a heaven’s gate. Insurance fraud and burned up buildings. We’re not going to see them again. They’re going, gone, gone, gone. They’ll never ever have the same home. Pharmacist’s daughter is hooked on pain pills.
Track Name: Radio Days
RADIO DAYS: In another world I could have been king. In another life you could have been Queen. You’re prettier than what I could have dreamed of. Too bad I can’t even lead. Just say it. You’re so pretty and I’m so so. It’s a bummer I couldn’t be on T.V. Radio died with the ugly. You look better up on the big screen. Too bad we can’t even lead. Just say it. You’re so pretty and I’m so so.
Track Name: Child Star
CHILD STAR: Once upon a time there was this child star who couldn’t remember his lines. He sang ohhs and ahhs. There was this kid way back in school who wouldn’t leave his room. He sang ohhs and ahhs. You’re always talking about your problems. Why can’t you ever see the bottom line? I remember when I was as young as you. I swore I would never do. Sing a ohhs and ahhs. Now that I’m old standing in front of you, there’s only one song to do. It has ohhs and ahhs. You’re always talking about your problems. Why can’t you ever see the bottom line?
Track Name: Teen Angels
TEEN ANGELS: Coolies screaming I don’t like and all that you do. What can you do? I can see now why, why you’re always killing yourself. Stop killing yourself. Break it down into pieces you’ll get m.i.s.e.r.y spells misery. Lonely’s screaming I don’t like you and all that you do. What can you do? I can see now why, why you are always killing yourself. Stop killing yourself. Break it down into pieces and you’ll get m.i.s.e.r.y spells misery.
Track Name: Demetri Collins
DEMETRI COLLINS: Demetri. Is going on, on and on. About himself. About his life. And everybody sings, poor Demetri Collins. He doesn’t want to sleep alone. Demetri. Is going back, back and forth. About his fight. About his plight. Trying to, to achieve. Dying is world peace. And everybody sings, poor Demetri Collins. He doesn’t want to live alone.
Track Name: Michelle
MICHELLE: Bad news has ruined your day again. To get up to get down. Anxiety is slowly creeping in. Bad luck has ruined your life again. To get up to get down. Prozac because all your friends are thin. Michelle. Michelle. Why you all alone? Michelle. Michelle. Why you going home? Bad moves have ruined your day again. To get up, to get down. No one loves you when you win. Bad dudes have ruined your life again. To get up, to get down. Billy Bob won’t be there in the end. Michelle. Michelle. Why you all alone? Michelle. Michelle. Why you going home?
