Track Name: One More Song
I need one more song
A waltz or a sing-a-long
It can’t go wrong
Just one more song

I need one more song
Punk or a sing-a-long
It can’t go wrong
With one more song
Track Name: Princess Upset (Not A Happysong)
The bed is made
A colourful spread
The princess weeps
Upset Upset

The hill is flat
The sea is dry
Birds are dead
Upset Upset

The army is gone
The loser has won
This is not
A Happysong

Roads are empty
Lives misled
Signs are red
Upset Upset
Track Name: Death To The Demoness Allegra Geller
Why lead a mediocre life
Don’t conform to normality
Live your dream
In a better reality

A virtual world
Always online
Multiplayer games
A moment to shine

Death to the demoness Allegra Geller!

Liberate yourself
And feel free
Escape your life
Be who you want to be
Track Name: Feed The Cat
When I get up
Feed the cat
When I come home
Feed the cat

She’s waiting for me
Hungry and lonely
Her wining is
Driving me mad
Track Name: The World Does Not Revolve Around You
You see what you want to see
Who made you the queen bee

Believe it or not
The world does not
Revolve around you

We are here to serve you
Majesty tells us what to do

You see what you want to see
When you’re thinking me me me me me

You’re mean
Track Name: I Never...
People think I’m lazy
People think I’m crazy
But they don’t ask why

I’ll never go where I’m supposed to go
I’ll never read what I’m supposed to read

People say I’m crazy
People say I’m lazy
But they never ask why

I never go where I’m supposed to go
I never read what I’m supposed to read

I never think what I’m supposed to think
I never do what I’m supposed to think
Track Name: Symphorophilia
When I see a lady in her automobile
I crash into her to cop a feel

I haven’t had a woman in many years
So I crash my car
To crush my fears

A yellow sedan
A Honda Accord
A two cylinder
Is all I can afford
Track Name: Public Transportation I
Public transportation is so easy today
Just take the bus or the subway

Walking on the pavement
Nobody I know
Just strangers
I feel alone

Round heads
Many eyes
Moving legs
Fat behinds
Track Name: Fiona Get Your Lazy Ass Off That Damn Couch And Release Your New Album
Attention miss Fiona a message for you

I understand you’re afraid
But I can’t wait
Your couch may be nice
But it sure ain’t no paradise

Apple
Apple

Woman, we need new music

Extraordinary complicated

Hello?
This is your manager
Hi
Your account
What?
Totally empty!

If you need somebody
to feed your cat
I can do that
Track Name: Out Before I Begin
In a bar
In a cafe
Drinking beer
The whole day

The sun is out, but I am in
I am out before I begin

In the bus
In the train
No-one to talk to
The whole day

The sun is out, but I am in
I am out before I begin
Track Name: Anti-TV Song
You don’t have to watch TV
To have an opinion
To hear good music
To understand politics
To hear the news

It’s meaningless
Degrading
Dumbing down
Home invading

Our view of the world
Is mutilated
Shallow entertainment
God knows who made it
Track Name: Breaking The Chain
You think you can cure me
To take me back home
It’s time for your plan B
I’m born to be alone

You think you can change me
Into a better man
It’s time for your plan B
Oh Barbie, I ain’t Ken

I won’t see you again
I’m breaking the chain

You think you can own me
To make me your PA
It’s time for your plan B
I’m going away
Track Name: Don't Waste Your Time
If you can’t live together, you’ll die alone
That is something can’t postpone

Don't Waste Your Time
Don't Waste Your Time

It’s always later than you think
Life is over in a blink

Don’t waste your potential
And try to be gentle
Track Name: Public Transportation II
Public transportation is so easy today
Just take the bus or the subway

Walking on the pavement
Nobody I know
Just strangers
I feel alone
Track Name: Nothing!
I like to sit on the couch
And stare at nothing
I like to sit on the couch
And think nothing

Watching the paint dry
Watching the grass grow

I like to sit on the couch
And do nothing

It’s a wonder this song was written
It’s a wonder this is a recording

I like to sit on the couch
Nothing
Nothing
