I don't know how to drive I'm always crashing in to everything beams of disapointment blasting from your eyes I don't know what you're going to do with me Forty thousand pesos is not a lot of pesos can't afford that yacht This driving cane is the only driving cane that I've got driving cane right in your face i'm shaking my cane in your big stupid face Sometimes you know exactly where you want to be but most time you won't know what the hell is happening.

You look super fancy in your pizza costume All your pizza dance moves are so tight Pizza makes an appearance every Halloween night Come and get a piece of that hot slice Pizza gets all of the ladies Pizza's makin' pizza babies Happy Halloween
Time To Go 03:31
Oh yesterday we were so much younger and the nights were longer without putting up a fight watching MTV for the news Kurt Loder when the Snorks are over it's time to say goodnight Going home today pack a snack for on the way raid the fridge for frozen pizza time to go I don't know the way mobile phone will navigate leave behind the lonely pieces time to go It's so hard to breath when the bases are loaded wondering if she noticed her hand holding my heart in the car she said she just wanted to be friends so this is how it ends why did I pretend
Tell me more about about the Mega Colon How int the world did it get so big is it dangerous A piece of John Wilkes Booth Floating in a jar on display at the Mudder Museum In Pennsylvania She's still debating how to answer the question it's not uncommon to join your collection when the vacation's over sometimes it was stressful you can relax now that you are gone roll me to the stage pre-recorded message introduce the Bushwick show from beyond the grave Frozen in carbonite next to the beers in the greenroom somebody drew a mustache on my face I bet it was probably Geoff
Gobble Gobble turkey turkey in the oven need some lovin' My meat thermometer is gonna take your temperature when it's time, just say the word come on over take your place I got a free turkey I'm feedin' faces My meat thermometer is gonna take your temperature when it's time, just say the word this bird will never fly again what's left over will be frozen Follow directions show me what to do cooking turkey noodle soup super sexy hot and juicy be my baby loosey goosey My meat thermometer is gonna take your temperature when it's time, just say the word
Broken 02:10
Satan has spoken Earl Thomas is broken Evil is lurking Earl Thomas is broken oh please god not twenty-nine oh my god no not ttwenty nine I've been moping Earl Thomas is Broken
Flamethrower 03:00
An armchair armada has formed moving across the floor you'll have to go around explosions have blocked the door Army men melting away nothing remains for sure cameras are rolling following Schwarzeneegger Flame thrower Say something awesome this time before you kill that guy you had no trouble coming up with that line Bad guys are setting up shop we're sending in Robocop we are the best of friends enemies we are not Flame thrower I'm on fire you're on fire every one is so on fire Flame thrower
The man is bringing me down I'm always turning to the bottle this town must fight big alien plans or my wife will never breathe again My best friend lives in the jail for never finishing a sentence I got drunk in my neighbors truck and now I'm stuck without a friend Whoa go get your fork because this old man is done for good Whoa better drink up fast because this will be my last sweet shotgun blast My bones have seen better days do anything just to earn a dollar I miss the way you twirled your hair and took my sadness away the past can be an awful place I'm glad I can barely remember you broke my heart when you dropped that pass it was my last chance for happiness
I cannot wait for this dumb guy to stop talking about all this stupid crap that I don't care about Please save your questions till the end got one chambered up for him what is the KPI of wasting all my goddamn time I came for the sandwiches Beautiful sandwiches the sandwiches
Why'd you have to break my heart today Not sure why you sent me on my way the day is full of doom deliciousness is unconsumed I'm gonna throw this pizza on your roof all aboard the lonesome submarine broken hearts will fill these empty seats You got me feeling blue but there's still one thing that I can do I'm gonna throw this pizza on your roof It's probably gonna stay there for a long time even though I'm hungry I will never take that pizza down The words you used have left me at a loss I'll fill the void with a super frisbee toss Your so suddenly aloof let's find out if your pizza proof I'm gonna throw this pizza on your roof
CORINA lyrics ============== Corina sees herself in all the world A grackle or a girl She says hi They raise their eyebrows up and down the street Call the girl off beat But she don't mind What she really wants to know my love Is can we find some common ground Could we ever hold it down It will come to shove it always does When the push has had enough Our only hope is love What we really need to know my love Is can we find some common ground Could we ever hold it down It will come to shove it always does When the push has had enough Our only hope is love Corina Sees herself in everyone A garden or a gun She's been both She laughs at what we say we won't abide Then Casually switch sides Of the same boat Corina listens as we burn through precious breath As though supply exceeds demand inspite of death
While I'm Still Alive - LYRICS ====================== This beeping machine suddenly broke in half Low quality just wasn't built to last I know why you returned it's not my first rodeo come take what you want i'm your convenience store all that and more You're too old for all this climbing on a steel horse you've been riding there will be no more high fivin' while I'm still alive Wheels on the bus keep going round and round i will pretend that I'm happy now you carved her name on the side of me she'll break your heart this I can guarantee but I can never leave I am just a tree and I don't have any legs you get a car and you get a car everyone gets a car you get a car and you get a car everyone is getting car love Oprah
UP YOUR BUTT AND AROUND THE CORNER ============ It's hard to come to terms with a summer that's ending It doesn't feel so so good outside with the sounds of oceans crashing up your butt and around the corner searching for the sunshine of your love it's in the air and incomplete up your butt and around the corner I'd rather stay here than go don't you know that I don't know anything I should have eaten more pizza when I had the chance I'm not feeling sad today the cold air burnt my heat away
PATROL BOAT ============= i've tried my best to find my way into your heart sometimes I doubt that it exists I don't know what to do my battleship is sunk my tears are always hit and miss patrol boat where are you patrol boat where are you my board is keeping track of every single move looks like there's no way I can win check my coordinates for any sign of you seems like your heart is off the grid the game is almost over you're hiding in the corner navigate the plastic sea your carrier can carry me Hey baby i've been thinking this submarine is sinking my strategy's not helping me I close my eyes and all I see is red and white
Somewhere in the Middle - Lyrics By Wes Weddell -------------------------------------------------- North of Juliaetta, where the road starts winding Crest a little summit where there’s one lone pine tree Look for the mailbox by the rusty wheel Up at the top, there’re miles of wheat fields Down at the bottom lies Little Bear Creek Somewhere in the middle is a home-cooked meal Somewhere in the middle is a home-cooked meal Well, the first Thanksgiving that I remember Had an old wood stove and lousy weather That stove is still burning, the pies are still good But I got older and the work got harder Digging fencepost holes with my chicken arms Tying that log chain, splitting that wood Driving that tractor when they said I could They say when summer finally comes it takes 24 hours For ankle-deep mud to reach a fine dust powder Take it all in, breath it all out Storms in the winter might snow you in, But you grab another log and fill the kettle to the brim Drink it in deeply, let it settle down Drink it in deeply, let it settle down North of Juliaetta, where the clouds run sideways Chase ’em all day on a two-lane highway Wait for the sunset, it’s her show to steal Up at the top, you can still see worry Down at the bottom gets a little bit blurry Somewhere in the middle is a home-cooked meal Somewhere in the middle is a home-cooked meal Somewhere in the middle...
PARACHUTE PANTS ================== The sun is out  shining on my face  catching all the rays  direct from outer space  walking down  you're sixty minutes late  waiting for you now  to meet you in Georgetown  with parachute pants  zipper romance  tiny pockets to help us dance  looking pretty good  opposite of bad  coffee in your hand  kiss you on the mouth  we start to chant  when the tacos come  you're getting super drunk  and sleeping on the towels  send me pictures of your cat  there is nothing wrong with that  bombs in your bath  getting clean while I take a nap  document with dots  betting on the pigs  keeping on the lights  I'll read to you in bed  I hit it hard  that's what she said  sleeping in till five  while people eat your bread
Bobblehead 02:45
Bobblehead LYRICS =================== One part is always bouncing around to the sound above your neck sits no ordinary crown I’m willing to be that I pity the fool is your favorite thought split your dome with a very special type of hawk Bobblehead bobblehead bobblehead has been bobbling tonight The lower half is a pedestal holding down the fort optimized for maximum bobble support arms crossed over fifty thousand pounds of solid gold stand there forvever, so I’m told business on the bottom party on the top
Boche ball by the tiki torch in the summer sund goes down, bikini girls bring the thunder blanket with a hole keeps my body warm in the winter arms are free to roam from the center everyone's a winner poncho will deliver birthday song at the azteca eating tacos clap your hands, mariachi band with sombreros feeling so alive it's par for the course bought it from a guy riding on a horse poncho juice is flowing from the faucet sell themselves they always turn a profit
What's going on have you heard the news the third violin is super prego again that bitch stole my shoes and those fucking flutes told me to keep it down well fuck those guys always flutin' around like they own this town gotta tell the toob some juicy post-apocalyptic symphony news where thirsty mouths are running constantly I can't wait to tell the toob everybody here has got mad beef they should let it go by the time she arrives so full of complaints it's really hard to avoid the classic Katie rampage but I've found a way create a buffer zone and hand her off to a friend twenty minutes will pass and the ranting will end and she'll be fun to party with again climbing up the ranks on the list of people you hate it's hard to keep it straight when we conversate I don't appreciate you dropping french bombs on my plate
Why are you yelling at my potato? what did it do to you to warrant this reaction? I think you hurt his feelings so you better say your sorry don’t know what I’m gonna do you’re making my baked potato blue You can pass me the bacon you can pass me the butter if you don’t shut your stupid face I’m gonna shut it for you my potato needs some lovin’ and its gonna be delicious don’t know what I’m gonna do you’re making my baked potato blue Breaks my heart to see my potato crying look what you’ve done I hope that you’re happy now it’s time to put him down down in my belly don’t know what I’m gonna do you’re making my baked potato blue
Get Yourself a Hot Dawg Flip flop there ding dong here dropping quarters ice cold beer ladders and chairs clap your hairs I am getting sleepy the boxing dude will knock you out extra ball in your mouth player 2 one million points i am getting sleepy
Nobody's Home ----- LRICS ===================== Two hundred smiles taking of space in unorganized piles there's one on my face every time you stop by talk into the banana like a telephone line nobody's home jump in the lake everything's melting and covered in cake frosting exposed slowly soaking up sun I know I'll get burnt before it's all said and done nobody's home watching the summer turn to night I think maybe you were right throw me a bone getting some guidance from the Walter Jones holding some kittens in the palm of your hands the wisest left tackle in all of the land nobody's home
Not That Bad 03:44
NOT THAT BAD ============== Welcome to my home it’s feeling kind of lonely all the doors are closed the windows black and bony Come down to the basement and you’ll see just what I mean there is nothing left between us, oh baby things are not that bad sit down do the math Hang out on the couch listen to my problems I am leaving town take care of my belongings This super computer can compute things super fast but it wasn’t built to last, was it baby? things are not that bad sit down do the math Plenty of food to eat memory foam mattress for me to sleep on close your eyes and dream about anything Time is running out still don’t’ know what I’m doing look up at the clouds they don’t seem to be moving When I’m on vacation it’s so hard to relax knowing you’re not coming back things are not that bad sit down do the math
Don’t vomit on my horse she’s the only one I’ve got walk your ass back to camp you can puke in your hat don’t chop off both my legs I will shoot you in the face don’t you try just say goodbye I’d rather die than have no legs it’s a mustache bonanza headed for Montana strap on your cowboy boots it’s time to ride not afraid of danger like Walker Texas Ranger except everyone around me seems to die I don’t know why stand there with no clothes rocks are flying at their heads I’m impressed by her accuracy glad those rocks were not aimed at me so many sleepy pigs dreaming at the Lynden fair they hibernate 16 hours a day there’s just no way they could walk that far check your facts deliver these notes to my lady friends I loved them most thinking of them while transitioning into a ghost let 'em know I'll never get to poke them again
Oh For Two 02:22
You haven’t seen the last of me God shed his grace on thee so easy to believe this kind of nonsense feel the tiny miracles dancing on your feet thunderbolts just keep on bouncing off you Shooting free throws on the moon perfect form is always looking good Shooting free throws on the moon gravity renewed going oh for two freethrows on the moon Imagine you’re a particle that hasn’t learned to float consult the coach’s notes hope for guidance The world seems so much simpler from beyond the charity stripe I don’t know what that’s like so I’ll stay quiet
Locker Combo 02:32
35 17 35 is the combo to my locker 35 17 35 are the numbers that you need now you can take my things you can take my velcro take my velcro wallet you can take my notebook you can take my ding dong buttons you can take my phone charger you can take my California Raisin keychain you can take my toothbrush then you can brush your teeth you can take my autographed photo of Walter Jones if you take my Vonnegut then you'll also take the bookmark that my mother gave me you can take my deodorant then you can smell like me
Take A Nap 01:41
the sky is falling on your head farts are all around put the movie down read a book instead thoughts are broken and smashed to bits listen to the cars in the backyard playing all the hits take a nap you should take a nap closed for business but not closed for good doing warp speed in the time machine the goose has not been cooked a one-way ticket to hammock town officially immune to the afternoon shut this party down take a nap you should take a nap

It’s hard to believe This is all that’s left of me Older than the oldest guy you know Computer on my back Sitting here in class All the girls are popping from their clothes I just can’t pay attention anymore On Western holy ground Can’t escape the sound of stupid hippies and their dumb guitars not much here to do but sit around and think of you why does Bellingham have to be so far away I just can’t pay attention anymore I’m almost there I’m all washed up I’m almost done with everything I just can’t pay attention anymore what do I do now with a brain that’s slowly burning out I’m pretty sure that I don’t care Eat a piece of cake What’s it gonna take do just enough so i won't fail
There aren't any lyrics for this song, but if there were they would fucking awesome!
Little boy in a jar why won't you play with me Little boy in a jar why are you little
Dinosaur socks don’t fail me now I am depending on you I’ve been so lonely I need you badly Dinosaur socks what happens now My feet are witness to the Magical powers I know she’s into me Cause now I’m much more interesting I will refuse to buy them drinks That old technique has been extinct My confidence is thru the roof But secretly I owe it to my Dinosaur socks
Drinking champagne in the lobby drinking champagne at the party drinking champagne it’s my favorite drink drinking champagne, naked bodies drinking champagne with some hotties drinking champagne the bubbles help me think Whoa o helps me philosophize just like I lived in ancient times champagne makes my brain go crazy contemplating human existence Champagne in the membrane champagne in the brain Drinking champagne after hours Drinking champagne in the shower Drinking champagne keeps my body fresh Drinking champagne, brain is bubblin Drinking champagne, keep it comin Drinking champagne because it is the best
