Track Name: Монгол
[Sung entirely in Mongolian hoomii-style throat-based singing, this song does not have lyrics per se; it is a simple ode to the great steppes of Mongolia where I hope to travel one day...]
Track Name: I'm Sorry
I remember when I first saw you, you talked like no one else. I didn't give a damn what words were until I heard you speak. I remember when we first made love, I wondered what I did wrong until you lit my cigarette and we talked at three a.m. I looked at your unbuttoned shirt and your naked skin and realized everything was fine. I remember when I screamed at you and you screamed right back at me, I probably punched a wall and you were probably in tears. I'm sorry.

But I'll be with you though you're long gone, to remember you I wrote this song because I loved you. Baby you know it's true. It's because I love you, baby you know I do.

I can't sleep for a second anymore because my mind is corrupted and my body doesn't work. I'm a complete fucking mess. But I'll keep going no I won't stop no matter whatever happens or not, I'd kill a man to kiss you one last time. But the broken heart will always be mine.

I'll be with you though you're long gone, to remember you I wrote this song because I loved you. Baby you know it's true. It's because I love you, baby you know I do.
Track Name: Love is _______!!!
It took me four years to write you this song
but it only took one for my heart to belong!

I did not know love then as I know it now,
it took me four years but I figured it out!

Old lovers act wrong so I gave you so more,
when he came to reclaim you I showed him some more!

Refrain:
And now we're together for better or worse
But if love's a curse, oh Lord I'll be cursed!


You kiss me so crazy, you kiss me so soft
Well I guess you could say we're kissing a lot!

And I wouldn't trade our seconds of time
for anything else in this world I could buy!

Well true love isn't anything written by words
so we made up our own and that word is ________

Refrain:
And now we're together for better or worse
But if love's a curse, oh Lord, I'll be cursed
And now we're together for better or worse
But if love's a curse, oh Lord, I'll be cursed


The faces I see are carved into frowns
but when we fell in love
I carved my upside down
Track Name: Work My Job
Well I work my job and take my pay mmhmm
I work my job and take my pay mmhmm
I work my job and take my pay mhmm
I work my job and spend it all away

Ohhhhh...

I work my job and drink it away mmhmm
I work my job and drink it away mmhmm
I work my job and drink it away mhmm
I work my job and don't have to spend it all 'cause I got drink tickets tonight

Ohhhhh...

I work my job and smoke it away mmhmm
I work my job and smoke it away mmhmm
I work my job and smoke it away mmhmm
I work my job and smoke buckets all day, YEAH!

Ohhhhh...

I live my life and I take my breaks MMHMM
I live my life and I take my breaks MMHMM
I live my life and I take my breaks MMHMM
I LIVE MY LIFE MY OWN GODDAMN WAY

Ohhhhh...
Track Name: Don't Telephone
Well I've heard you calling, baby
And I'm excited as all hell
But when I finally picked up the phone
You've been looking for someone else
Now I know I seem a bit weird, it's hard to help myself
But I'm just being who I am while you drag me straight through hell

'Cause I can't sleep!
I can't smile!
My clothes are in a pile!
I can't get out of bed
Knowing you need someone else instead

[in this version the second verse is improvised, but this is the INTENDED verse]
Now I seen ya again, baby, after three whole weeks
Maybe four, maybe more, the truth it hurts to seek
But you're looking rather well and you booked a jazzy date
The expression on my face is an expression of my fate

'Cause I can't sleep!
I can't smile!
My clothes are in a pile!
I can't get out of bed
Knowing you need someone else instead

YOU NEED SOMEONE INSTEAD!
I can't smile, my clothes lay in a pile!
YOU NEED SOMEONE INSTEAD!
I can't smile, my clothes lay in a pile!
YOU NEED SOMEONE INSTEAAAADDD!
I can't smile, my clothes are in a pile!
I NEED SOMEONE INSTEAD!
Track Name: Matters None (Twenty One)
Twenty one, always stoned,
wake up on my porch, it's one o'clock, where am I going?
I don't know if this town - is it my home or brings me down?
I'm just too stoned, again

But when I play these strings it matters none
And when I sit and sing it matters none
When I sing to you it matters none
When I sing to you it matters none

Twenty-one, always stoned
I'm on my ass, no chance for cash
I'm on my ass again
Well I don't know where we go
We live we die, kiss we cry
I'm just too stoned again

But when I play these strings it matters none
And when I sit and sing it matters none
And when I sing to you it matters none
When I sing to you it matters none

WHOOOOAAAAAAAAAA!!! (stolen from a Confusion Bolts' song)

When I play these strings it matters none!
When I sit and sing it matters none!
AND WHEN I SING TO YOU IT MATTERS NONE!!!

WHEN I SING TO YOU IT MATTERS NONNNNE!!!!
Track Name: I'm Scared
Humanity has run its course, there's nowhere left to go
Our homes are filling up so fast and our spaceships move too slow
I'm scared of what may lay ahead, I'm scared of what will be
But I want to give out everything to my friends and family

There's horror shows where people die so graphically, so wild
They package limbs and skulls and bones to profit from a child
I'm scared of what may lay ahead, I'm scared of what will be
But I want to give out everything to my friends and family

The decadence, I see it now, one hundred dollar plates
We all must get our fill in time but think of what's at stake!
I'm fortunate, oh so fortunate, to live this way I do
So if you need a helping hand you know I'd love to share with you

I'm
Scared of what may lay ahead
I'm scared of what will be
But I want to give out everything to my friends and family

I'm scared of what may lay ahead
I'm scared of what will be
But I want to give out all my love to my friends and family

So you can write me up as a preacher, man,
but the word just sounds so lame!
But I'll stand atop whatever I can
TO ROAR OF ALL OUR FATE!!!
Track Name: Going to Hell
Hell, I'm going straight to hell
Hell, I hope those demons have got some booze to sell

Well I work all day, I work all day
Full time, part time, it pays my life
Well I drink all day, I drink all night
'Till my stomach rolls over and I get in a fight
Well I smoke all day, I smoke all night
'Till my lungs turn black and I'm high as a kite
I lay all day, I lay all night
'Till my girl rolls over and goes back to her life

Hell, I'm going straight to hell
Hell, I hope those demons have got some booze to sell

Excess is my success
Oh boy, I'm doing swell!
Excess is my success
Oh boy, I'm going to hell
Excess is my success
Oh boy, I'm doing swell!
Excess! Is my success!
Oh Lord I'm going straight to hell!

I'm going straight to hell!
Track Name: Keep Your Head Up
Commander Clark was sent to Earth
To return what he is worth
Place the blame away from me, I'll show you what I want to see
I fell high above the waves
Acting dumb I lost my place
Wasted person wasted face
Growing foolish everyday
Gotta keep my head up

I lived in the U.S.A
It was big and it's OK
Went to school, I took the bus
Took an hour but it was fun
Listened to punk tunes all the time
Blink and Sum they were my rhymes
Getting pumped up every day
For a life I thought I hated
Gotta keep my head up

I got friends that're telling me
What they think that I should be
Better questions and advice
I ain't feeling very nice
I'll yell back and maybe swear
I'll yell back and maybe tear up
Whatever friendship we have left
But I loved those days, they were the best!
Gotta keep your head up!

This is a story
of a man
Who sacrificed his life
For the cause
Gotta keep your head up!!!
