Track Name: Good Sniffs
sir how much have you had to drink tonight? only one.
oohh it's not even in tune.
cause when you build a home, you gotta really make that you really dig that concrete
YOU ARE GOING TOO FAST MY FRIEND
YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO SLOW THE FUCK DOWN
oh great...that was a crime...i have committed a crime.
let's try this again
Track Name: Leave Me Alone
whenever we're together,
i don't want to be together,
just leave me alone,
leave me alone,
leave me alone
whenever you call me,
i turn off my phone,
just leave me alone,
leave me alone,
leave me alone.
what don't you understand?
just leave me alone,
leave me alone,
leave me alone.
leave me alone,
leave me alone,
leave me alone.
leave me alone,
leave me alone.
leave me alone,
leave me alone,
leave me alone,
leave me alone!
Track Name: Byways and Highways
you showed me the hills of iowa
as i overdosed on sugar in the passenger seat
the drive was melancholy
but we made it last as long as we could
one of my favorite stops
was a little gas station in a small small town
it was blasting disco music
and i danced danced danced as i pumped pumped gas
i felt so high
i probably could have cried.
no we're not lost
we're not lost
Track Name: untitled so I don't have to think about it again
there is lotion on the ground, lotion on the ground
somebody spilled it all
why is there lotion on the ground? why does lotion spill everywhere?

who spilled all this lotion? who spilled all this lotion?
somebody who is not satisfied, with the fact that the world is dry
someone who is unsatisfied with the fact that the world is dry

they tried to fix it, they tried to fix it, but now it’s a huge mess
they tried to fix it, they really, they tried.

but now i’m slipping, i’m losing touch, with reality.
i’m losing touch, i’m losing touch, with reality.

and i slipped backwards, i slipped backwards,
and cracked my head open.
i slipped backwards, yeah i slipped backwards.

cause the lotion cover the world (x3)
it’s a lubricant
lotion covered the world (x3)
it’s a lubricant
Track Name: Devil's Advocate
you regurgitate opinions that you hear on npr,
and you like to give me shit about the things i love.
it’s easy for you, because you have no hobbies.
your favorite thing to do is to tear down walls,
but you’d never admit to it because you’re a male feminist.
you excuse yourself from the shitty things you do,
because you’re a male feminist.

there’s nothing wrong with you,
we’re all too sensitive.
you’re a perfect specimen,
we’re all too sensitive.
you’re so brilliant.
and you’re just misunderstood.

your life must be so hard
Track Name: Popular Science Magazines
carlos dengler looks just like a gecko
it's been published in all the popular science magazines
and at this point in history it's pretty much received as a scientific fact
but there's still people on this earth who want to dispute it
especially a guy who lives inside of a bowl.
and my only question for you,
is why do you hate science?
why do you hate science?
Track Name: Mental Health Day
forget to wear your glasses, who cares
bump into a tree, and cut your knee.
skip all of your classes, and see your shrink.
vision is for people who need to see.

you don’t friends to live your life,
however they make it easier to fly.
and you need to fly to leave your house,
because you live in the middle of the sea.
Track Name: Requiem for a Broken String
capo number two was too much pressure for you,
and i’m sorry to see you go.
but last night at the open mic,
you sounded so great.
and everybody loved hearing your golden tone.
i don’t think i could have predicted this,
because i don’t think about what could go wrong.
so i’m gonna string some shiny beads on your corpse,
and remember the great life that you had.
