Track Name: Call Me Crazy
Call me crazy, but I like to think
that everything'll turn out fine
It's getting heavy and you can't see
but everything will be alright

Ten thousand babies
will be holding hands
and eighteen hundred dollars
will be burned and never spent
Only one bluebird will swallow up its pride
and fly away

It's not as bad as you'd like to make it
Though I know you'll argue that
You tell me I don't understand
And maybe I really don't

But I know there's more than one solution set in sight
Call me crazy, but I like to think
that everything'll be alright.
Track Name: Thinking Too Much
Someday I promise you, I'll change my point of view
But til that day has come, I'll laugh at everyone
You keep trying to shake me wake me, but my eyes are glued to the screen
I can feel my IQ dropping, but it's worth another minute of this

Doesn't anybody know? Doesn't anybody know?

Save my heart from tragedy
Save my lungs from gravity
Save my brain from thinking too much

Old McDonald Had A Farm, EEYAI EEYAI O-O-O-O-OH

So just give me another minute, I swear I'll be back by then
I've just gotta spill my heart out, I've gotta share what's in my head
You keep screaming that no one cares...
"Seriously, no one cares"
...and I know you're probably right,
but I can't go out in this state, I can't go down without a fight.
Track Name: Inverse Reaction
Call me on my television
I'll be drawing on the screen
Some obscene and rectify them

How do you spell common sense
You cut a line and fold the rest
You close your eyes and sanctify them

Don't be afraid to take the fall
Don't be afraid to lose it all
Just count on an inverse reaction

So maybe I care too much
It's better than giving up to me
am I the only one to figure

You spoke in tongues and sprayed
a little love and a lot of rage
if you're the gun then I'm the trigger

Don't be afraid to take the fall
Don't be afraid to lose it all
Just count on an inverse reaction

But maybe it won't ever come
Maybe my days are all done
Maybe not

I've just gotta try again
I've just gotta try again
Track Name: The Ballad of Candace
Candace was a girl who lived in the suburbs
But one day she just couldn't take it anymore
So when she was a toddler, she went right by her father
Tied her shoes and ran outside the door

She went to New York City, where the lights are pretty
Well look out city, there's a Candace out on the town

Candace found her way 'round Coney Island
She got a job taking people onto tours
But late one summer evening, the tourists were all screaming
The city was under attack by a dinosaur

She used her superpowers to defeat that monster
Yeah, everybody loved her; the mayor gave her the keys to the city
Track Name: Fear of Teenagers
I have an urgent fear of teenagers
I watch my back for them; I'm paranoid
A little coffee's what they're after
I'm sinking in the chorus laughter

Cause they're gonna bite into my ears, my ears
Then they're gonna love on me with you, with you

So have it your way, but don't expect
for me to follow you blindly
Their vapes dissolve into the atmosphere
But they can't manage to end my fear
Track Name: Food Poisoning
Food poisoning gets us all
Whether you're really big or very small
So make sure all your meat and eggs are cooked to order
Or you'll sound like this

[insert horrible bowel movement noises here]
Track Name: Don't Wanna Die
Excuse the world for its mass opinion
I just wanted to drop by
Turn off the light and kill the switchblade
Cause if it was my fault, I'll cry

Itch my skin off, I don't care
Just try to do it gently
Call me and I'll mark the X
where you said you declared your love to me

Even if it's no good, it's perfect to me
So c'mon girl and show your face or I'll pull it off, I'll pull it off of you

Take your time or they will find you.
Track Name: INSOMNIA
Severed heads are floating thru the sky
Laughing at the people passing by

Take a while, give another clue
Every eye it leaves except for you

Insomnia Insomnia Insomnia Insomnia
Track Name: Splendid Man
Living in the workshop, pumping out the larvae
Making lots of money cutting off his artery
Calmly baits his next wife, wanna live another life
In the end it's her that's the fool

He's a splendid man
He's a splendid man
He's a splendid man

Taken back by youth
He keeps his head held high
All they really want is the truth
And all he really wants is to die

He's a splendid man
He's a splendid man
He's a splendid man
Track Name: I Can't Help You
I can't help you, I can't help you
Cause you're too much for me, you're too much for everyone

I can't save you, I can't save you
Cause it's only a matter of time, you'll find out that you were fine this whole time
Track Name: P.S. I'm Hungry and Tired
Why are you covered in cole slaw?
I'm just trying to figure this puzzle out.
It's been going for three long days, can't you feel it?
Sometimes I wonder if we'll make it to the moon

But can't you see I'm hungry and I'm tired
Can't you see you're gonna go insane
And I don't wanna see you die
So put your ear up to the sky and sleep

So can't we take another break?
Isn't that what normal people do?
We could go by my house, I have some snacks there.
I'm just trying to lighten up the mood.

But can't you see I'm hungry and I'm tired
Can't you see you're gonna go insane
And I don't wanna see you die
So put your ear up to the sky and sleep

So what can be done?
The boosters aren't gonna run.

Don't you yell at me, no I won't say I'm sorry.

Then we both collapsed from exhaustion.
Then we both collapsed from exhaustion.
