Track Name: Firefight
Firefight

Stay below the windowsill at least tonight
Neighbors having a barbecue and a firefight
On the way home buy some milk make sure it's skim
By the way please don't forget ammunition

The time is right is right the weather's good
A fire fight in the neighborhood

A war of words is going on behind the scenes
Nobody knows how long or what it means
Backhanded compliments little white lies
Sometimes you wish that they'd just let it fly

The time is right is right the weather's good
A fire fight in the neighborhood

Your tree fell on my driveway
Your driveway's in my yard
I just slipped on a gumball
This time it's gone too far

First amendment exercise that's nothing new
Second amendment people there're things they can do
Probably wouldn't happen here chances are low
We won't give into fear it's freedom you know

The mood is right is right the weather's good
For a fire fight in the neighborhood
The mood is right is right the weather's good
For a fire fight in the neighborhood
Track Name: (when) Newt (goes to the moon)
(when) Newt (goes to the moon)

When Newt goes to the moon we will go too
When Newt goes to the moon we will go too
We'll build him a special pod
A warehouse full of scrod
He can make his own fishsticks
Once he is there

There's part of us that says we're already there
It's not just a ball of dust without any air
It's all opportunity
No bureaucracy
We'll make our own fortune once we are there

Here I am waiting at the drive thru
Far away from the speaker phone
I'm so sick of four dollar gas
The food police on my ass
Lets push the big button and make a new home

When Newt goes to the moon he'll have special needs
He'll need a lot of t.p. and something to read
Our spaceship's made out of wood
The engine runs pretty good

We'll have a republican party once we are there
Once we are there, once we are there
Once we are there, once we are there
Once we are there
Track Name: Pretty Good Idea
Pretty Good Idea

That's a pretty good idea that you had
The one about space
The one about living underground
The one about waiting

Waiting for the story to be told
How they lied
And they tried to keep you down, obfuscating

Cars that run on water that is easily obtained
From clouds formed by devices that in drought will make it rain
Ionizing upper atmospheric charges then
Collect electrons to run the trains

I wish that you had left us better notes
Why didn't you phone
you must have known they'd bring you down
Get us a copy

Copies of the plans and formulae
On a computer
Or other suitable format, even a floppy

You should have known they'd confiscate the working prototype
Pay the peer reviewers to dismiss it all as tripe
Add some extra minus signs so no one could build it right
And leave us fumbling for the light of that

Pretty good idea
Pretty good idea
Pretty good idea that you had
Track Name: Meeting Downtown
Meeting Downtown

We are like dandelions about to go
Flying off in all directions only now we know
Did you read the newest news there's a breakthrough in store
Not like the one from last year or the year before

Running down the street chased by the inevitable
No mortality, not for us it's optional now
Running down the street chased by the inevitable
No mortality, not for us we just have to go

To a meeting downtown (sign your name),
A meeting downtown (have a seat)
A meeting downtown (learn the secret)
Spread the word around

He's a leading doctor but he doesn't toe the line
He's in town this weekend don't you think it's worth your time
Get your gluten free cave man ketogenic ass in gear
Learn the toxic vegetable or you won't last a year

Running down the street chased by the inevitable
No mortality, not for us it's optional now
Running down the street chased by the inevitable
No mortality, not for us we just have to go

To a meeting downtown (sign your name)
A meeting downtown (have a seat)
A meeting downtown (learn the secret)
Spread the word around

Just listen to the man learn more in the complete program
There's no money better spent than on the secret supplements

Running down the street chased by the inevitable
No mortality, not for us it's optional now
Running down the street chased by the inevitable
No mortality, not for us we just have to go

To a meeting downtown (sign your name)
A meeting downtown (have a seat)
A meeting downtown (learn the secret)
Spread the word around

Spread the word around
Track Name: Halfway There
Halfway There

We're half way there, we're half way through
Halfway to where we're halfway to

We could drive all night, but what's the point
In getting all out of joint

When we get to where we're going
Will it change the world somehow
And will things be very different
From the way they are right now
I don't wanna stop and smell the roses
That sounds silly too
But I don't think I'll regret it
If I spend some time with you

Is this OK? It is with me
Let's take a walk, I've got nothing to read

I don't know why I like this show
You know me well, you probably know

When we get to where we're going
Will it change the world somehow
And will things be very different
From the way they are right now
I don't wanna stop and smell the roses
That sounds silly too
But I don't think I'll regret it
If I spend some time with you

I'm not saying we shouldn't try
That is not my point at all
But this heat is too much
I always liked the locust trees
The way the sun shines through the leaves
Can that apply to us

We use to rage but now it's calm
Your mercy's like a soothing balm

We're half way there, we're half way through
Halfway to where we're halfway to

When we get to where we're going
Will it change the world somehow
And will things be very different
From the way they are right now
I don't wanna stop and smell the roses
That sounds silly too
But I don't think I'll regret it
If I spend some time with you

We're half way there, we're half way through
Halfway to where we're halfway to
Track Name: Monument
Monument

Let's build a monument with all this crap
A totem pole of rusted wire and scrap
In this way we'll escape our mental trap

Maybe these fragments of our dreams
Are not as scattered as they seem
Combine their energies to make a kind of beam

One that will give us half a chance
Out past the fires of circumstance
To find some reason within our crazy rants

From all those rambling words now scattered all around
From all those parts and pieces lying on the ground
Take them all staggered and leaning
Right them with meaning and make them sound

Over the fence across the sand
Plastic bags and empty soda cans
Where shoney's big boy statues dot the land

They oversee our enterprise
Growing before their plastic eyes
And raise a tribute of sandwiches and fries

Object by object end on end
Each gap each weakness we must mend
We'll have to step back to realize again

Our monument will be a ladder to the sky
Spirals and tentacles reaching ever high
We pull and pull ourselves up rung by rung
As we reach higher and higher and try

Our monument will be a ladder to the sky
Spiraling tentacles so pleasing to the eye
We pull and pull ourselves up rung by rung
As we reach higher and higher and high
Track Name: Winter Sky
Winter Sky


Cold and windy getting dark we're walking round until
You took a picture that's when everything was still and turning
Purple orange deeper red before it goes to blue
Branches of the tree outlining leftover light that's shining

Nothing between 'em it's like nothing else I know
Cold and brilliant when there's nowhere else to go

Are you feeling better are you feeling blue
We are good forgetters that's what gets us through

Nothing here there's nothing there nothing in the cards
The winter sky lit up with broken bits and shards and turning
I tell a joke because I like to see you smile
It doesn't work but it might take a little while or longer

Nothing between the words there's nothing else I know
Cold and brilliant when there's nowhere else to go

Are you feeling better are you feeling blue
We are good forgetters that's what gets us through
That's what get us through

I tell a joke because I like to see you smile
It doesn't work but it might take a little while

Are you feeling better are you feeling blue
We are good forgetters that's what gets us through
That's what get us through
Track Name: I Know I Know
I Know I Know

I'm gonna stop drinking from the milk jug
Gonna use a glass
I'm gonna stop my compulsive gambling
Once I win my money back

I'm gonna stop yelling at the neighbor kids
Trampling on my lawn
I'm gonna start buying more American
Once I get a phone for my mom

I know I know I know baby
Just what you're going to say
I'm gonna do all the right things
If I can just get through today

I'm gonna stop all escalating
Once I get one last word in
I'm gonna with the random hating
Turn the other chin

I guess i should go downtown shuffle papers
Get myself some work
As soon as I find a good position
Commensurate with my worth

I know I know I know baby
Just what you're going to say
I'm gonna do all the right things
If I can just get through this one interminable day

I don't wanna leave you
I just want a good disguise
You just want what's best for me
Searching my soul with those eyes

I'm gonna stop texting while I drive
Gonna do it soon
I'm gonna eating double cheeseburgers
Retire my greasy spoon

I'm gonna stop laying all those people off
Once we get right sized
I'm gonna stop with the rampant cheating
Once I win the prize

I know I know I know baby
Just what you're going to say
I'm gonna do all the right things
If I can just get through today

I know I know I know baby
What you're going to say
I'm gonna do all the right things
If I can just get through this one interminable day
Track Name: Spring
Spring

The spring is here and I don't trust it not one bit
Too many yellow flowers all around
I can feel their yearning with beauty that is turning
Into something that will let me down

The spring is here and I don't trust it not one bit
Like prodigies who do things I can't do
Astonishing and shiny I'll say that they won't last
And then be disappointed if it's true

You don't say anything at all
But maybe you will call next year

The spring is here and I don't trust it not one bit
Like someone who is telling me to smile
Its humor is effusive by summertime intrusive
But only by September worth my while

You don't say anything at all
But maybe you will call next year

The spring is here and I don't trust it not one bit
Just seems a bit too pleasant to be true
Through summer I'll be reading tales of its receding
And wait for it to catch up with my mood
Track Name: Plans
Plans

If I was clever I would endeavor
to make things go your way
Every moment would be your own and
you'd always have a say
Just like it was when we were so young and
we made the world with play

Don't be surprised if the plans that you plan
Don't go according to plan

I was a smart guy as the days went by
I became plenty dumb
If I could eat my words I would sure try
and drink would make me numb
Forgive my intrusions but these illusions
are what I'd spare you from

Don't be surprised if the plans that you plan
Don't go according to plan

It's not a point about past mistakes or singing a different tune
Breaking the promises that we make everything happens too soon

I'd give you kindness or peace of mindness
if that would make you free
Some kind of world where things that occurred were
what you had dreamed they'd be
Can't make it real but fiction is better
than this reality

Don't be surprised if the plans that you plan
Don't go according to plan
Track Name: Money Makers
Money Makers

All you money makers I hope you're oh so proud
For being so productive carrying the crowd

All the boats are rising especially the yachts
You got your chummy buckets skimming off the top

Before the lazy river gets to sea or any trickles down to you and me
They dam it high and drain it low dryer than the Colorado ...

Siphoners and skimmers, market timing ops
Tunnelers and funnelers, they soak up every drop

You beat the pension funders those dumbass muppet chumps
And then you bet against 'em to kick em in the rump

Before the lazy river gets to sea or any trickles down to you and me
They dam it high and drain it low, dryer than the Colorado ...

The gubmint gives you money but you are nicer yet
You lend us little pieces for just a few percent

And when you get in trouble and all your bets go bust
You take your worthless assets and sell 'em back to us

Before the lazy river gets to sea or any trickles down to you and me
They dam it high and drain it low dryer than the Colorado ...
Track Name: Prosperity Jesus
Prosperity Jesus

You know I used to be a follower didn't gave much leadership
Till the reverend spoke on sunday bout the word of faith in it

Do you really think the lord is stuck in the first century you know he
Saves our souls but he also likes to help financially

Please help me Prosperity Jesus

Now I got a job in sales and with the blessings of the lord
I sowed the seed and I bought the book and now I'm on the board

Well god helps those who help themselves
so we helped ourselves real good
We got a private lake in a gated subdivision in the woods

I thank thee Prosperity Jesus

What are you doing down there
Look up look up he says
You should be up here flying, soaring high
(you owe to it yourself to try)
Those who don't sow the seed
They didn't feel the need to grow in spirit
Don't live in fear it's the Devil's lie

Well we got 4000 sq ft of house and it stays cool in the sun
We drive a hundred miles to work and spew out carbon by the ton

And when we go to church on sunday we are 18,000 strong
And the preacher's got an even bigger house
so you know he can't ge wrong

I thank thee, Prosperity Jesus
I thank thee, Prosperity Jesus
Track Name: Same
Same

When everyone's the same we'll all stay
Wherever we feel like, wherever we choose
When everyone's the same we'll all play
And no one will win and no one will lose

Dustin' off your monuments
In your trophy case
Gotta be the first one there
Ya gotta win the race

Seeing eye to eye with me that's
Not an easy time
But you've got seven arguments for
Every one of mine

Some day some how it's gonna change
And all our derangements will be within range

When everyone's the same we'll all stay
Wherever we feel like, wherever we choose
We'll all be in the game
And no one will win and no one will lose

Buildin' up the road rage
fightin' in the streets
Tryin to get a higher grade
On the SAT

Tryin to get the other guy
Bidding up the price
Whey you get the thing you buy it's
Never very very very

If all of this competition helps us learn
If we need some losers we can just take turns

Cuz when everyone's the same we'll all stay
Wherever we feel like, wherever we choose
In every kind of game we'll all play
And no one will win and no one will lose
