Track Name: Smooth
Well, everybody knows I’m not exactly a strapper
But I’m still well-known as a lady trapper
Well you ask, how’s this rapper so goddamn dapper
And the secret’s in the toe of my trusty tapper
I’m a swinging, jiving, music man
But, of course, you knew that long before I began
What, you haven’t heard of me? Well I’m big in Japan
Wear a fedora every day because I motherfucking can

Well, I’m so smooth like peanut butter
When they see me, women’s eyelids flutter
I’m refined and suave and debonair
When I pirouette all the females stare
Cause I’m smooth
So smooth

Now, I know what you’re thinking, how’s this fella so spry
He got moves so sick that I think I’m gonna cry
Baby, my shoulder’s here, but I’ll tell you why:
I do it for you, cause I’m a really nice guy
I’m elegant and classy, you’re a little more concise
You’re a sweet apple pie, but I’ll add a little spice
I’m attracted to your brains, but the rest is pretty nice
Well, I told you once, now I’ll tell you twice

That I’m so smooth like a bowling lane
My vocabulary’s better than the late Mark Twain
I’m refined and suave and debonair
When I chassé all the females stare
Cause I’m smooth
So smooth

Baby don’t you know you want me
Want my dancing feet
Of course you do, how couldn’t you
After my sick beat

Well, I’m so smooth like whipping cream
When they’re with me, women want to scream
I’m refined and suave and debonair
When I wiggle-wiggle-wiggle all the females stare
Cause I’m so smooth like Morgan Freeman
I’m a high-class bad-ass dancing demon
I’m the slickest snake in the universe
And, baby, you could do, like, so much worse
Cause I’m smooth
Track Name: When the Rain Falls
Far away in lands lost long ago there was a child young and innocent, carefree, unknowing of the things the world would bring to it,
So it ran amok and every day it played among the flowers and the trees, only the wind to guide it,
And there was no one there to warn it of the things to come and no one to tell it to prepare,
And there was no one there to warn it so it ran without a care

And when the rain fell down it lifted its head up and tasted it,
And when the rain fell down it cried and said this rain is beautiful, I admit.

Then the child, grown in part, held every day close to its heart and mastered the forsaken art of being where it wanted to be,
So it climbed atop a willow, wandering free,
And there was no one there to warn it of the things to come and no one to tell it to prepare,
And there was no one there to tell it that the rain was bad to it ran without a care

And when the rain fell down it lifted its head up and tasted it,
And when the rain fell down it cried and said this rain is beautiful, I admit.

Now the child, fully grown, who lived its life all on its own, met another child wandering free, it was
A little child, the smallest one, who’d always only known the sun, whose life had hardly just begun, with nobody to tell it what not to be,
And there was someone there now to tell of things to come and how to prepare
But the someone there just told it to wander free without a care

And when the rain fell down it said lift your head up and bathe in it,
And when the rain fell down the child smiled and said this rain is beautiful, I admit,

The rain is beautiful, isn’t it?
Track Name: Grave
I don’t know why
But I’ve been feeling so ethereal lately
Walk on by
It’s like nobody can see me
I’m walking on air
Is anybody there
Now I remember something
Dark and cold like the inside of a

Grave
I don’t know why I’m here but I just feel so
Afraid
Of what I was, what I am, and what I will be

I think I’m fine
This feeling like so many things will pass
In time
That’s one thing I’ve got lots of now, I guess
I feel so free
Can anybody hear me
Is this all we are, just
Passing from the cradle to the

Grave
I don’t know why I’m here but I just feel so
Afraid
Of what I was, what I am, and what I will be

I think I’m gonna be alright
Nothing to hurt me now, you know
If no one sees you
No one knows you
Then you never have to try
I want to start a fight
If no one sees you
No one hears you
When you try to say goodbye

I don’t know why
But I’m feeling kind of sick of being lost
Walk on by
Nothing to see here now, and isn’t that the cost
I’m alone
To see more than I ever could have known
Oh, it’s so empty here
In-between two worlds, it’s silent as the

Grave
I don’t know why I’m here but I just feel so
Afraid
Of what I was, what I am, and what I will be
Track Name: Make the Most of It
There are some candles in the back
Remnants of life before the attack
But I’ll light them for you

Canned soup and lentils aren’t the best
But the mutant rats got to the rest
So they’ll have to do

The sky is full of balls of fire
They burn and glow like my desire

I hear them moaning from outside
I know the feeling

We might not make it to the dawn
So when’s a better time get it on
There are zombies pounding on door
So baby just a little more
The government is underground
So they won’t hear us when we pound`
The world is dying, full of shit
So before it ends, let’s make the most of it

There’s a dusty mattress on the floor
Come on, I’ll wipe away the gore
And lay you down

You haunt my mind, make me a fool
I think, or maybe that’s the ghoul
We’re living in a ghost town

The sky is full of balls of fire
They burn and glow like my desire

I hear them moaning from outside
I know the feeling

I hear the slam of a body bag
So when’s a better time to shag
Skeletons are rotting rather near
But they’re not the only bones in here
Come on, let’s populate the earth
They’d have great genes, for what it’s worth
The world is ending, I admit,
But before it does, let’s make the most of it

Make the most of it

Plagues left our world in a sorry state
But I won’t be sorry to fornicate
Robots are uprising above
But we’re here tunneling in love
We’ll never see the light of day
Just one more reason for you to stay
The world is ending, we must submit
But before we do, let’s make the most of it
Track Name: Shark Week
If this song makes you feel uncomfortable
Get used to it
Go on and dance
At least you don’t
Have to deal with the crazy shit
Going on every month in our pants

It’s shark week
It’s shark week
The havoc we will wreak
The outcomes are quite bleak
For you
You’ve not a clue
What’s in store for the next two to seven days

It’s shark week
It’s shark week
Tradition clouded in mystique
Our war paint is a streak
Of red
I wish I was dead
But my mental stability
Correlates directly
To the lunar phase

I don’t care if your manliness prevents you from
Fully enjoying this
Neither do we
Jekyll and Hyde the monster that I’ll become
Makes me reminisce
About a time before this came and happened to me
It’s shark week
It’s shark week
The havoc we will wreak
The outcomes are quite bleak
For you
You’ve not a clue
How much I want to stroke you with a knife

It’s shark week
It’s shark week
Tradition clouded in mystique
Our war paint is a streak
Of red
I wish I was dead
I’m completely engulfed
In the pain of being a werewolf
And I’ll be this way for half of my natural life

And I don’t want your pity or your scoffs
I’m too busy with my tampon tampoffs
But I don’t want to be denied entry through the presidential door
And your argument is invalid because most of the women that have run anyways are old enough that they wouldn’t even have it anymore
And even if they do the important thing is what they’re standing for

It’s shark week
It’s shark week
The havoc we will wreak
The outcomes are quite bleak
For you
I want to do
Many terrible things to whomever invented uteri
If only I could

It’s shark week
It’s shark week
Tradition clouded in mystique
Our war paint is a streak
Of red
I wish I was dead
And I want to go swimming
Cause I’m at the beach
But I didn’t of think of that before I came here
And now people are just jumping in but I can’t do that
And there’s no convenient bathrooms
In which I could insert the thing that holds in
All the blood
Track Name: The Tell-Tale Heart
Staring calmly into oblivion
Underneath the floors we’ve been living on
Try to convince you of the truth I’ll unveil
Just kick off your boots let me tell you this tale

Though you call it inhumanity
I’ll convince you of my sanity
Watch my convictions slowly fall apart
I’ll give it all away to stop the beating of his heart

I’m falling through
Take me away, take me away
The pounding of a drum
In my ears
Can you hear it
Can you hear it
It’s the spirit
It’s the spirit
Even this one good thing in my life turned bad
And though I speak with reason everybody thinks I’m mad

Just an eye it sits and stares at me
I wonder just how much an eye can see
Underneath the facade of serenity
Can it see my fingers tremble when I turn the key

Like the lantern illuminate my soul
Everything must stay under my control
Watch my convictions slowly fall apart
I’ll give it all away to stop the beating of his heart

I’m falling through
Take me away, take me away
The pounding of a drum
In my ears
Can you hear it
Can you hear it
It’s the spirit
It’s the spirit
Even this one good thing in my life turned bad
And though I speak with reason everybody thinks I’m mad

Try to believe it’s not as bad it seems
But my mind can’t erase the sound of the screams
My convictions slowly fall apart
I’ll give it all away to stop the beating of my heart

I’m falling through
Take me away, take me away
The pounding of a drum
In my ears
Can you hear it
Can you hear it
It’s the spirit
It’s the spirit
Even this one good thing in my life turned bad
And though I speak with reason everybody thinks I’m mad
Track Name: Jesse's Girl
Everybody says that I’m crazy, crazy I know this; by now I’m aware
Everybody says that you’re lazy, lazy, never gonna go nowhere
But when I turn the music up all I need to know is that you’re there
And the rest of world can fall away, no, I don’t even care

Everybody thinks that you’re no good, no good, not the right guy for me
But all their warnings make me think that I should, I should, tell them how it’s gonna be
I don’t care that you don’t have a fancy college degree
I’m in love with you, my love is true, and that’s where we agree

Oh, Jesse
Just let me
Hold you close again
I’ll love you even when
You fall
After all
Love is all it takes

Oh, Jesse
Just let me
Envelop you in love
You’re the one I’m dreaming of
Even when you fall
Cause after all
Everybody makes mistakes

Mom and Daddy say you’re a loser, loser; I don’t talk to them anymore
Even if you kind of are a user, user, you’re still the one that I adore
My best friend said that you kind of suck; I shoved her out and slammed the door
Cause you’re the greatest guy, no I’m not gonna lie, you’re all I could ask for

I’m not sure when it started but I think, man, think, man, I opened up the door and it was you
I was all like oh my god it’s Pinkman, Pinkman, what the hell am I gonna do
Everything is better than I thought it could be better than I ever even knew
It’s better than it could be a love that’s breaking good but I know that you’ll be true

Oh, Jesse
Just let me
Hold you close again
I’ll love you even when
You fall
After all
Love is all it takes

Oh, Jesse
Just let me
Envelop you in love
You’re the one I’m dreaming of
Even when you fall
Cause after all
Everybody makes mistakes

And you’re the one I want to whisper in my ear
Cause I know you that you could never be liar
And maybe I’ll lean over and reply to you
I’m the only drug that you could ever desire

Oh, Jesse
Just let me
Hold you close again
I’ll love you even when
You fall
After all
Love is all it takes

Oh, Jesse
Just let me
Envelop you in love
You’re the one I’m dreaming of
Even when you fall
Cause after all
Everybody makes mistakes
Track Name: Apologize
Stabbed in the back is a little bit literal for me
On the attack, I'm despicable; a criminal, oh, can't you see
Payment enclosed, there's no time to think about morality
I'm not predisposed to particular congeniality

But when I think of you
And I think of you a lot
I feel it's too bad
You're the one that's gotta get got

I would apologize
If it would change a thing
Just close your eyes
Cause this is gonna sting
I'd try to flirt
Cause you're really rather hot
But this is gonna hurt
A lot

Day after day, this is how I live, it's all I've ever known
Not much to say, but I guess that's cause I'm always on my own
We can have fun, pretending that I know my right from wrong
We can try to run, but I'd probably sell you out before too long

But when I think of you
And that's really quite a lot
I feel it's rather bad
You're the one that's gotta get got

I would apologize
If it would change a thing
Just close your eyes
Cause this is gonna sting
I'd try to flirt
But I'd really rather not
Cause this is gonna hurt
A lot

All the blood pouring out doesn't really make for a nice gift
Like a rorschach test of my heart while my mind is adrift
What I don't understand is this feeling that I get from having it done
Cause I thought I would feel nothing; I guess my conscience has won

I would apologize
If it could change a thing
Just open up your eyes
And we all can sing
I guess I was kind of curt
Cause I never really thought
That this was gonna hurt
Track Name: The Truth About Homeschooling
There are people in this world that are quite different than the others
You may know a few of them; your cousin's girlfriend's brothers are all homeschooled
What's up with that?
Now, at first you may find these little people quite alarming
Cause who's ever hear of a homeschooler being charming?
Nobody
Ever

And how can they learn if they're not tested
I think they're getting a little too invested
In this theory
That has no studies to back it up as a viable learning option

[Chorus]
Homeschoolers are all socially awkward
And lounge about in pajamas every day
When they're not being taught by a person who's not a teacher
They stay inside cause they don't have friends anyway

They're chained up in the basement so they rarely see the sun
They never go on field trips, cause what's the fun in leaving their shelter
Not that they have the time
They never sit in chairs and don't know how to stand in line
I bet they won't take orders so there's just no point in trying to use discipline
Who listens to parents

And how will they ever go to college
It's not like they've gained any knowledge
It's not like the acceptance rate is actually higher for people who homeschooled

[Chorus]
Homeschoolers are all socially awkward
And lounge about in pajamas every day
When they're not being taught by a person who's not a teacher
They stay inside cause they don't have friends anyway

And I feel bad for the parent
Who has to spend time teaching their kid
It's not like that job is inherent
They have to hang out with the person they created, God forbid

[Chorus]
Homeschoolers are all socially awkward
And lounge about in pajamas every day
When they're not being taught by a person who's not a teacher
They stay inside cause they don't have friends anyway [x3]
Track Name: Black With You
Waiting in the rose garden
Waiting out for you
I knew right from the start
What I was setting out to do
I waited till you saw me
Quite a treacherous design
Then I said I'd always be your girl
If you'd always be mine

I didn't think it would come to this
I really never knew
I'd be falling in the lasting bliss
Of deeply hating you

And I hope you feel the same about me
Cause I can't go back
No matter what I do
I'll always be like this, and proudly
Now I've fallen into black
With you

Hating every syllable
Hating every word
A mutual agreement that
This feeling is absurd
Relish every fight
We bite and sneer and scathe and scratch
Well, you must be on fire
Cause it seems I've met my match

I didn't think it would go this far
I really never knew
I'd bask in something so bizarre
As deeply hating you

And I hope you feel the same about me
Cause I can't go back
No matter what I do
I'll always be like this, and proudly
Now I've fallen into black
With you

Montagues and Capulets
Sherriff Nott to Robin Hood
The brightness to my silhouette
Ooh, this really could be good
I'm not trying to throw you
This isn't just a fling
Cause we work well as opposites
A love-to--hate sort of thing

And I hope you feel the same about me
Cause I can't go back
No matter what I do
I'll always be like this, and proudly
Now I've fallen into black
With you
Track Name: Ginger Twins
I look outside into the snow
I wish that you'd stay long enough to know
We beat them all again
So maybe it was all a show
To cover me not letting go
We'll always be wisemen

And you and I made a vow
We'd always be free
But I guess now
The joke's on me

You keep slipping through my fingers like sieves
And how am I supposed to know how the other half lives?

I'm sitting after the attack
It's strange to think you're never coming back
Because you and I are one
The fantasies that I'd create
You were with me, so I can only wait
To tell you we all won

And you and I made a vow
We'd always be free
But I guess now
The joke's on me

You keep slipping through my fingers like sieves
And how am I supposed to know how the other half lives?

We were flying overhead in momentary bliss
But now I'm just falling, so alone, in this abyss
We thought we were all the kings advancing to the dawn
And all of the things I meant to say and do are gone

I scream and shout and even pray
That you'll come back to me some day
But I know that it's wasted
The feeling's supposed to disappear
But still I wish that you were here
The glory we tasted

And you and I made a vow
We'd always be free
But I guess now
The joke's on me
Track Name: Country Of The Sun
I traipse down the yellow brick road of my mind
Wondering if and how I’ll finally find
Some place where the stars are all aligned
But when I come back to the real world I know I’ll just leave it behind

In this world I’d hold you close to me
Everything arranged just perfectly
Purple skies ahead and scarlet seas
But it was never meant to be

If I pretend that it is real
Will it become solid enough to feel
If I pretend that it is right
Will it appear before my sight
Will it last me through the night

I know it can’t be real; it’s all in my head
Just a thought that managed to embed
Itself in my mind when I’m dreaming in my bed
And it will unravel with the pull of a thread

But I’ll hoist my flag and I’ll fly it proud
And I sing my anthem strong and loud
I pretend there’s a massive cheering crowd
Cause when I go to the country of the sun I escape all the real-world clouds

If I pretend that it is real
Will it become solid enough to feel
If I pretend that it is right
Will it appear before my sight
Will it last me through the night
Track Name: Mine
VERSE 1:
Need to perfect my maniacal laugh
Master riding my armored giraffe
So I can come in and be the best
By brutally killing all the rest
Got to work on my laser's aim
To be in the villain's hall of fame
Try my hardest I know I'll win
That's how these things have always been
Act mean, act tough
Don't forget to be rough
Act hard, act gruff
Don't let them call your bluff
Oh

CHORUS:
This world is gonna be mine
I know I gotta do this, so I won't whine
Not just one lap, I gotta run nine
But my payment is my very own
shrine

VERSE 2:
Need to invent a personal shield
An all-repellent kind of forcefield
Who needs boring lady liberty
When you can have a statue of me
Got to work on my swordsmanship
Get a holster for my whip
I'm not some sort of Robin Hood
I'm not just misunderstood
Act smooth, act cool
Don't just be a tool
Act harsh, act cruel
Don't be a complete fool
Oh

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Helmet…Check
Laser…Check
Evil henchmen…Check
Schmancy plated armour…Check
Heat-seeking spider guns…Check
Nefarious electric guitar I can use to write my victory song…
Check
Blood-fueled jetpack…I'm still working on that


VERSE 3:
Lift some weights and touch my toes
Get some publicity by putting on shows
Ride my giraffe to get a cape
I really need to get in shape
Making my blueprints, writing my plans
Test driving my murdervans
Eat some pan-seared unicorn steak
Find a nice eel-infested lake
Act healthy, act fit,
Don't dig your own pit
Have smarts, have wit,
Don't ever admit
Oh

CHORUS
Track Name: Say Goodbye
SAY GOODBYE

VERSE ONE:
I get quite hot up here you know
I've never seen a flake of snow
I got eight children that depend on me
It's a lifetime's work, I'm never free
Don't get to sleep, don't get to eat
I generate your light and heat
These hours really cross the line
A neverending overtime
Well

CHORUS:
I think 4.5 billion years is enough
You don't like my decision, well, tough
I'm not coming back, so you can cry
I'm going away till the day I die
Because this is over, I am done
So say goodbye to your precious Sun

VERSE TWO:
All these labels you assign
Leave me inside a close confine
Sometimes I wish that I could just exist
Have my own story, my own twist
My own adventure that I make
A dream from which I won't awake
The loneliness I can not stand
Abandoned here in no star's land

CHORUS

BRIDGE

VERSE THREE:
Sorry to be leaving you
But I got things I wanna do
Got half my lifetime ahead of me
Just wanna do, just wanna be
Why can't I have a life as well
Be my own star and just excel
A universal enterprise
Just try to see it through my eyes

CHORUS x2
