Track Name: Cabazon Viejo
i'm loaded up with coffee & i'm ready to go
it's an 8 hour drive to cabazon viejo
i'm blasting tunes in my Honda Accord
i'm rolling down the highway doing 24

now, everybody's honking but that's OK
i've got my short shorts on and it's a beautiful day
i see a sign up ahead, i'm almost there
maybe this time i'll get to kill a bear

turn down the dirt road, look at all the cactus
luckily for me, i know what all the facts is
i know that it never snows here in cabazon viejo

i've got a hatchet + stove + bottle of water
i've got a cellular phone + i do not have a daughter
i've got a slingshot + hammer + wooden canoe
i'm the best dag camper that you ever knew

there goes a pigeon and a cockatoo
the other camper's over there sniffing glue
i am shirtless and he is too
baby, can't you see there's money On me?

you become a camping pro here at cabazon viejo

now i hear a noise and i get up scared
i see digging in the trash a big ole bear
i know exactly what to do, i hit the deck
imma grab that bear by her fuzzy neck

well, the next thing i know she's got me in her jaws
if i had a life remote i woulda hit pause
the shirtless man came out of his tent
hit the bear with a pan, which all his money was spent (on)

well now, i've got my battle wounds
i'm recuperating and i'm eating prunes

i'll probably never go
back to cabazon viejo
Track Name: Saginaw
i can't sleep
i can't eat
& the faces that you're making
in my window are unsettling

i'm a mess
i can't think
this emotion that i'm feeling
can't be spoken in the language that i speak

saginaw, in your broken arms
i wait for the phone to ring

i am dead
disappearing
run your hand right through my forehead
baby, you can't see what i can't even think

it's okay
life is gray
in my city, i am speaking
but i only hear what someone else would say

saginaw, in your broken arms
i wait for the phone to ring
Track Name: I Know That Price In Yen
put her there, put her anywhere... i don't really care
i wanna pick her up but gravity will keep her there
the longer that the night is i am
moved in directions toward malice

i've got a lot of friends that don't know how to play
i've got a lot of friends that do it anyway
i've got a lot of time to think of them all
my dearest friend will catch me if i fall

i've got to say, it really bites when the leaves fall quicker
well, i'll only go to the doctor if i get a sticker
it's such a shame that looks can
overshadow competence & brains
Track Name: It's Only Fate
my mouth is so completely numb
i have no equilibrium
pucker up & smile
sucker, stay a while
my head is somewhere in the sky
i'm making history by and by
it's so completely grand
honey hold my hand

i know i'm pretty late
but understand, it's only fate
my body clock reads half past 5
& it's a wonder i'm still alive

i've lost the feeling in my face
i'm curled up in a little space
when everything sounds greek
why even try to speak?
existence is hilarious
& everything is scaring us
i just have no words...
i'm speaking the unheard

i know i'm pretty late
but understand, it's only fate
my head is full of something wise
i'm a mormon in disguise

hey, i have a feeling it'll be okay
hey, i wouldn't care if i died today

this really is the place to be
i'm shaking uncontrollably
& i don't know what to do
& then there's alex too
warmth of heart is warmth of soul
& peace of mind is out of control
i've got 2 seconds to admit that i've lost it
i've lost it

i know i'm pretty late
but understand, it's only fate
this feeling of emergency
is good enough for me

hey, i have a feeling it'll be okay
hey, i wouldn't care if i died today
hey, i hope this feeling never goes away
hey, i wouldn't care if i died today
i'll die today
Track Name: Birry
i've never been so lonely
i've never been so angry
& all over a spawn!
i suppose it was my handling

i've never been so tired
i didn't have it in me
i thought i was just like you
i didn't think you'd misunderstand me

hey hey hey

bet you didn't know i loved you
bet you didn't know i used you
bet you didn't know nothin'
bet you didn't know i want to d
(but i'm alive; i'm alive!)

hey hey hey
Track Name: (It Was A) Riot
i've got a neck cramp, & it's not going away
i met a supertramp, she lived in bob-omb bay
it didn't feel right, so we called it a day
& we finished in light oh yeah we finished in light
we took the metro to see the tour de france
it was an artform; we did a little dance
beneath verandas in our low-rise pants
& we recited lots of poetry, when we got the chance

it was a riot
why don't you listen to me?

went to pomona to see the pokemon fair
i brought a matchbox and a bottle of nair
stopped at the funnel cakes to scope out all the babes
but someone spilled their cake all on me (yeah their cake was all up on me)
i got cranky, & i went up to a booth
& bought a mankey and a baby ruth
found a gazebo where i could be alone
but then my homies picked me up and went to autozone

it was a riot
why don't you listen to me?
bananas
Track Name: Amamamzing
i had the most beautiful dream
crow black & it was raining
beyond the road, there was lightning
& you were there, running next to me

i had the most beautiful dream
i was the empire's deity
& i lived above everything
except for money & astrology

-- one day, i fell --
-- & they split me up --
Track Name: Attack Of Years To Come
today is the day that's been chosen by God as the end of the world
so today is the day that's been chosen by the world as the end of God
& although i'd like to run, i've got a family

the side that i'm on is the side... it's the side of the shaky ones
but, it too is the side of the chosen, it's the side of redemption
despite my trying, i'm certainly not #1

on my mind, it's all escaping
& if the ground opens up underneath my feet
we'll all know in an instant...
life has changed
is there not one person who's not deranged ... ?
Track Name: Kerosense
i've got a rope tied around my arm
i've got a hankie soaked in chloroform
i was alive before you came
i'd rather die than ever be the same
i've got homeless in my knee
if you can take them out, you'll get in free
i was alive when you were away
i'd rather die than be this way

hey ya, sailor moon
with your cuban cigars & your libman broom
oh, i'm so lame
but the ceiling flakes

i spent the last of all my change
money can't buy a better vocal range
i had to sleep to stay awake
& now i'm dreaming of a better way
she had a hiptop in her hand
& the mission never went as planned
i was alive when you were away
i'd rather die than be this way

hey ya, parliament
i was chained to the fence, i couldn't pay the rent
oh, i'm so lame
but the ceiling flakes

i know i took more than i gave
& i've got one cool minute before i cave
i had to sleep to stay awake
& now i'm dreaming of a better way
i've got a rope tied around my arm
i've got a hankie soaked in chloroform
i was alive before you came
i'd rather die
