Track Name: Puppy party
Oh will you come with me
To the puppy puppy puppy party
No need to be afraid
Furry friends will lead the way

And if you wanna dance
See some puppy puppy puppy romance
Just move your body man
Do you want a doggy bag

And all the cats will say
Meow Meow
Meow Meow
And all the dogs will say
Heyo Heyo
Heyo Heyo
And your friends will say
Oh oh
Oh oh
You'll say in your own way
I know I know
I know I know

Oh will you come with me
To the puppy puppy puppy party
You can stay here all day
When night comes we won't go away

And if you wanna dance
See some puppy puppy puppy romance
Show them your awesome tan
They will be your biggest fan

And all the cats will say
Meow Meow
Meow Meow
And all the dogs will say
Heyo Heyo
Heyo Heyo
And all your friends will say
Oh oh
Oh oh
You'll say in your own way
I know I know
I know I know
Track Name: Gifts
If I die tomorrow like I know will
Will you bury me in the middle of a ring of trees?
And tell everybody how you love me still
A house high on a mountain, on a hill of misery

Thank you for believing in me
And all these gifts you leave me
Because of you
I feel brand new

Write a note on the table, with a kiss or two
Wish for success for my buddies; success for my friends
Leave a polaroid picture, of me and my boo
This isn't how we thought, we thought it would ever end but

Thank you for believing in me
And all these gifts you leave me
Because of you
I feel brand new
Track Name: Christmas day
It's nearly christmas day in my country
And I can't afford anything to send you
I hope you're somewhere warm with your family
With a christmas sweater and a sherry

I
Wish you a fun new year
And all the dreams you have
Will probably come true
And even if they don't
It doesn't mean a thing
Because you're really great
And that's what really matters anyway


It's nearly christmas day in my country
Kids say hip hip hooray in the morning
And if you don't celebrate at this time of year
Well I hope you have a great December

I
Wish you a fun new year
And all the dreams you have
Will probably come true
And even if they don't
It doesn't mean a thing
Because you're really great
And that's what really matters anyway

***MOUTH SOLO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!***

It's nearly christmas day in my country
And I can't afford anything to send you
I hope you're somewhere warm with your family
With a christmas sweater and a sherry
Track Name: Gameboy
I woke up in the morning
And I'd dreamt of taking acid
And everything seemed lucid
For a while

Then my brother called
And told me he was going
To a country far away
In the evening, In the evening

And my chest felt heavy
And my wrists swelled up with imaginary bruises

We said goodbye for a while
Then I stood in the rain smoking
Even though I know it only
Makes thinks worse

I talked to Talia and Katie on my phone for a while
And I felt at home but I knew that I wasn't
I wasn't really
I'd never really be home for a lot of years still to come

So I'll play
My gameboy
To forget
To remember
How to cheat
My way
Through life

So I'll play
My gameboy
To forget
To remember
How to cheat
My way
Through life
Again
Track Name: Adults
This is a manifesto of how things should really go
from hear on in

Cause even though lying in my bed's good its nothing
compared to you

We'll get jobs it doesn't matter what and make
some money and learn some things too

And flee our parents houses and our hometowns
and things will make us feel scared but we're adults now

It's a world of possibility
but stay at home and kiss me

In real life people sometimes don't ever want to talk
what's up with that

I wanna know your story even if it's boring and
please don't think that

We were once intercontinental now we're incontinent
how about that

I hope we die at the same time and have an awesome life
things will be alright

It's a world of possibility
but stay at home and kiss me
Track Name: Searching for sympathy
Standing and waiting
In a dimly lit room
I see you shining
Stars are crying over you
And I can feel it
This feeling deep inside
Just try to hide it
Just tell another lie

I never thought I'd be
Searching for sympathy
I don't wanna see
Anything but you and me

This could be our home
A disco-speckled vision of
Domestic bliss
At least we'd live like this
Live without embarrassment
We'll fall asleep to Never Meant (HAHAHA WHAT WAS I THINKING WITH THIS LYRIC)

I never thought I'd be
Searching for sympathy
I don't wanna see
Anything but you and me

***CHECK OUT THIS INSTRUMENTAL SECTION

THIS IS BETTER THAN A DOG SMILE

THIS IS BETTER THAN THE SWEET EMBRACE OF DEATH***

I never thought I'd be
Searching for sympathy
I don't wanna see
Anything but you and me
Track Name: Computer dreams
I can tell you bout a brand new drug
It makes you feel you're overrun
With happiness
Worthlessness

i'll see you on computer screens
Living in computer dreams
And i'm sorry that i can't reply
Pretending this is real life

Upon myself I can't rely
I loved myself all of July
It's not a risk
It's just a trick

i'll see you on computer screens
Living in computer dreams
And i'm sorry that i can't reply
I'm pretending this is real life

I'll see you on computer screens
Loving in computer dreams
Pulling you apart at the seams
Figuring out what it all means

The beauty of unbroken streams
Of thoughts and unfamiliar themes
We make an unstoppable team
To fight for our self esteem

I'll see you on computer screens
Forever in computer dreams
I swear that we will never die
Please my darling don't you cry
Track Name: Infinite dreams (the mumble song)
Getting round to thinkin about it
Getting round to facing facts
And thinking how
Your plans will be put to action

It's easy to stay in your bed
It's nice to rest your head
But life won't stop
I guess it's up to you how you wanna live

It's not over yet
Dreams are infinite
We're all dreaming too
I am dreaming of

I can hear the breathing of him
The man with all of fear and strife within
Even though he's right behind me
I'll never ever look back again

Some live for money
Some are looking for love
And it's alright i'm fine I'd give up all these things
As long as I know that you're alright

It's not over yet
Dreams are infinite
We're all dreaming too
I am dreaming of you
Track Name: Spaceship earth (positivity voyage :') )
SAMPLE FROM BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD
SAMPLE FROM WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER
SAMPLE FROM CONAN O'BRIEN'S LAST TONIGHT SHOW SPEECH

Track Name: Living dead
On the seventh day
On the seventh day of nothingness
I have to remember
It doesn't matter
What you think of these things I do for fun

On this day
In a hundred years
You'll be dead and buried
I will be there too
But I won't share my cold dust with you

OoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOoOo

Track Name: Bored
I'm bored
I'm tired
I'm sweaty
I'm dumb

I'm bored
I'm tired
I'm sweaty
And I'm dumb

It's better that you know
That I'm gonna go

It's better that you know
That I'm gonna go

I'm bored
I'm tired
I'm sweaty
And I'm dumb

I'm bored
And I'm tired
I'm sweaty
And I'm dumb

It's better that you know
That I'm gonna go

It's better that you know
That I'm gonna go
Track Name: Alpha male death song
I'm number one
I got a graduate job
I found a good wife
And a private school's lined up
In the morning
Thank god that I wake up
Kiss you and the kids goodbye
Get hit by a truck

Oh can I trust you?
Oh I can trust you
I will live through you
Evermore

You're number one
Got another job
I am a good wife
And I'll take what's good enough
In the evening
Thank god that you came home
Turn the lights out say goodnight
Feel guilty making love

Oh can I trust you?
Hope I can trust you
I don't understand you
Anymore
Can I forget you?
I can't forget you
But I'm glad I met you
Anyhow
