about

Take the edge off the morning
Pitch black headache and Chinese eyes
Fall backwards into the future
I’ve outsourced my memory

Drunk at home is just as good I say
That’s my advice
I’m with you in your disappointment
Comes with a price
Keep yourself down on the ground
(That’s my advice
Keep yourself down on the ground)

Take the edge off the evening
angels pissing in your eyes
the good men always on your trail
see the noiseless drifter in disguise

I’m with you in your disappointment
I figured out your evening accent

Track Name: Why is my Baby so Pale?
Why is my baby so pale
Why does she wear black gloves
On a summer’s day

That’s right that’s right

Why does my baby not sleep
Why is she not gaining weight
She’s talking backwards all the time

How does her engine run
How come she speaks in tongues
How does her garden grow

Why is my baby so kind
Did she forget about revenge
I must investigate
That’s right that’s right

How does her engine run
How come she speaks in tongues
How does her garden grow

I wanna know about elaine
Track Name: Gonna be Fixed
I stepped away from the drag
The timing was right
I fell 100 flights of stairs
That’s half a mile
Poor lonesome devil crooked heart
Put up a fight

Attitude adjustment scheme
It’s a dream

I’m gonna be fixed gonna be fixed
The timing is right
I might get loud might get loud
Wave bye bye
Poor lonesome devil crooked heart
Put up a fight
Track Name: Go out and Love the People
I’m building a robot in my basement
It’s gonna receive my guests and tell them jokes
It’s gonna answer the phone and really listen
To you
It’s gonna fix my drinks and buy food

Friendly robot
Go out and meet the people
Go out and trust the people
Go out and love the people

I’m building a robot it’s nearly finished
It’s gonna write my songs and read my books
It’s gonna find the right words to reassure
you
It’s gonna fix my drinks and buy food

Friendly robot
Go out and meet the people
Go out and trust the people
Go out and love the people

Friendly robot
Go out and meet the people
Go out and trust the people
Go out and love the people
Track Name: Listen to the Noise
Listen to the noise
Better than Bob Dylan
Put your headphones on
Get yourselves a going

Listen to the trees
Better than the beatles
One six four
Shall I compare thee to an ostrich?

A ha / Got no mind at all

We got this lo-fi life
We play a sad boogie
The continents will drift
We will rotate like an Iggy

Listen to the buzz
Better than your hi-fi
Into reefer madness
Open up your tired mind’s eye

A ha / Got no mind at all

Put your race face on baby
Transmit some frequencies to me
Got no time for grace baby
Track Name: Moses, man I'm hit!
We found ourselves on a Monday morning
Sliding off the track
A birdbrain stuck in a loop
Nananana

Art in the 21st century
It’s not gonna help us out
My head is so heavy sometimes

Nananana
Everyone’s out partying and I’m in a waiting room
I said Moses man I’m hit
Moses man I’m hit

An evil mountain on our path
A one-eyed rubber witch
That’s why we’re the five o’clock drunks

Nananana
Everyone’s out partying and I’m in a waiting room
I said Moses man I’m hit
Moses man I’m hit

My head is so heavy sometimes
Track Name: I Like Airports
We could not see eye to eye
Took a trip around the world
I like airports / foreign money / funny language

I like walking through these motel hallways
So many doors
I like rooms when they are empty and they are dry
And I’m just a visitor

A mistake that can’t be fixed
They said ‘go’ and I was gone
I like airports / foreign money / funny language


I like sound that comes through yellow cardboard walls
Straight from the lobby
I like closets when they are empty and they are clean
And I’m just a visitor
Track Name: No Revolution
That’s not the right way
Don’t trust that manager
Don’t trust that rain god
His bleeding eyeballs

Gives you blisters
Makes you defensive
No revolution
Under this roof
Dig your own grave
It does not rock
No no no

My kingdom for a tambourine
You’ll be the bonehead
Get some oxygen
Place your bets
on the blind horse
get some beers
ruin it for everyone
no revolution under this roof
it does not rock
no no no
Track Name: They're not Telling
Someone said there must be something they’re not telling us
I replied there’s an elephant in the room
A big black page at the end of every storybook
Look around in November everything dies

And then you’ll meet a new queen bee
In the summer you’ll be blind again
You’ll be tripping out of your mind again
‘till the leaves are brown

can’t you hear every voice is dubbed in French
they look polite while they carry out their parts
A big black page at the end of every storybook
Look around in November everything dies

And then you’ll meet a new queen bee
In the summer you’ll be blind again
You’ll be tripping out of your mind again
‘till the leaves are brown
Track Name: Planet Yoyo
Well I used to have my feet on the ground
But who cares about the loss of bio-diversity?
Now that you’re holding me upside down
Who cares about the global financial crisis?
Not me, not me, not me

Well I used to have opinions about stuff
But who cares about the state of things in the 21st century?
Now that you’re shaking my world and I live on planet yoyo
Who cares about poverty and all that?
Not me, not me, not me

I used to have my feet on the ground
But who cares about the power of multinational corporations?
Now that you’re holding me upside down
50 cigarettes a day are going to give me cancer but who cares?
Not me, not me, not me

I used to worry about the future and also about the present
But who cares about money and who cares about security?
Now that you’re shaking my world and I live on planet yoyo
Who cares about pollution, racism and guns?
Not me, not me, not me

Just want to make out with you.
Just want to make out with you.
Just want to make out with you.
