Track Name: San Dimas (Live)
When the girl from San Dimas gives me a call
I get so optimistic that I start to fall

Fall fall fall fall in love
So blindly without a clue
When the girl from San Dimas gives me a call

Say what?

I only know a little but I think I know it all
I fill in the blanks so that I can know it all
'cause the way that I have her in my mind
Is the way she'll be when I make her mine
When the girl from San Dimas gives me a call

Come on!

The way she's in my mind is the way I want her right now
The way she's in my mind is the way I want her right now
The way she's in my mind is the way I want her right now
I said the way she's in my mind is the way I want her right now

Fall fall fall fall in love
So blindly without a clue
When the girl from San Dimas gives me a call
When the girl from San Dimas gives me a call
Come on!
When the girl from San Dimas gives me a call

Track Name: One Minute Tango
They had a one minute tango
They didn't rehearse
It wasn't very graceful
It was rather terse

He was a little clumsy
She was a little drunk

They couldn't do it
They didn't last long
They stunk

It was a one minute tango
They could not find the beat
It wasn't so graceful
And he had two left feet

He was a terrible dancer
And her heart sank

They couldn't do it
They didn't last long
They stunk
Track Name: I Was Born An American (Folk Version)
I was born an American I think about it a lot
I wonder how and why and when
To be born and American
I wonder what it means
Who am I and who are we and is this really alright?
To be born an American
Born an American
Born an American

But I was born an American
A place to call my home
A microcosm of the world
And this place called America
Well you hear about it a lot
Politicians with big ambitions
For that we've fought
fought and fought

Born an American
I was born an American
Born an American

Oh say can you see if nation might be wrong
Oh tis of thee that I've wondered far too long
Is it a dream that's just a dream thats just a dream
In a world we don't belong
Do we belong?
Do we belong?
Do we belong?

Born an American
Born an American
Born an American
Track Name: Goin' County Leitrim (Demo)
Wadaladahe wadaladaho goin' County Leitrim I think you should go
I think you should go

'cause I'm tired of the city
The city's just no good
And the hustle and bustle gets my head in a tussle
Just no place to call home
Can't call it home

Wadaladahe wadaladaho goin' County Leitrim I think you should go
I think you should go

They say the grass is greener
But there it's really green
And the Shannon flows with poet's prose
It's a place to call my scarlet rose
My scarlet rose

Wadaladahe wadaladaho goin' County Leitrim I think you should go
I think you should go

Wadaladahe wadaladaho goin' County Leitrim I think you should go
Wadaladahe wadaladaho goin' County Leitrim I think you should go

'cause this is a place to call home
Where I want to be from
There's nowhere I'd rather be than County Leitrim

Wadaladahe wadaladaho goin' County Leitrim I think you should go
Wadaladahe wadaladaho goin' to County Leitrim
Track Name: Macaroni
Macaroni a name I whisper soft and sweetly
From a place that I once knew please complete me
Because I want to purchase you

In a large saucepan melt the butter over low heat
Then you stir in flower salt and pepper until smooth
Stirring constantly heat it until its thick take off the heat and add a 1/2 cup of cheese

When the cheese melts put the macaroni in a dish
Pour the cheese mixture and don't forget to mix it real well
Sprinkle paprika add the left over cheese and bake at 375
In 20 minutes I could be eating a delicious meal but I'm starving cause you're nowhere to be found
On this island
ich bien einsam
Macaroni
ich bien einsam
Macaroni
ich bien einsam
Macaroni
Macaroni
ich bien einsam
Track Name: Sheffield Farms
This songs about a farm
Animals don't make it out alive
Trying to make sense of mind games
They can't plan their lives

Some will try to run
Others can hide away
But none will make it out
Sheffield Farms

They all have hope in their eyes
How fast it dies
It makes me cry
This songs about a farm
Where I too have died

Some will try to run
Others can hide away
But none will make it out
Sheffield Farms

Some had to try and run
While others tried to hide
But now they all have died
'cause nobody makes it out of Sheffield Farms
Track Name: Buyconsume
Buyconsume, Buyconsume, Buyconsume
Buy some more

Buyconsume, Buyconsume, Buyconsume
Buy some more

Buyconsume, Buyconsume, Buyconsume
Buy some more

Buyconsume, Buyconsume, Buyconsume
Track Name: Daydreamin' (Loquacious Larissa Remix)
They say every word that they want to say
Break people down when they're on break
Prey on my soul when they going to pray
There's no, running away
All the time
It's like this, all the time
Never quit, overtime
Never quit, they're going to find
Weaknesses, and all the rhyme n reason
To justify I'm a heathen
Nothing that I could speak
That'll get em to just believe me
Cuz I'm daydreamin'
Ya they say I'm daydreamin'
Ain't nothing that I could speak
That'll get em to just believe
That I'm not the person they think
And they shouldn't be judging me
Cause I'm daydreamin'
Ya they say I'm daydreamin'

Wait, why do I even play these games?/
Why am I weak and feel ashamed?
Why do I ask so many why,
Questions that make me realize,
Their real eyes, are full of real lies
Don't want to let them, have their way
Don't wanna let them, have me pay
Don't wanna let them em say what they mean
They don't mean what they say,
They're just mean full of rage
Meaning afraid of no meaning
Cause I'm daydreaming
Ya they say I'm daydreaming/
Ain't nothing that I could speak
That'll get em to just believe
That I'm not the person they think
And they shouldn't be judging me
Made for a purpose
Made on this earth, for what it's worth,
I can't purchased
Made to be pure, I don't really care,
How you interpret
Who I am, what I am, what I be, what you need?, why you so nervous?
Tell me, do I make you nervous?
Close curtains, show's over
Not the same punk person,
You could gloat over, no sir
I am telling you we are not kosher
I am telling you, don't get closer
Roll the creds,
before I say something that we're all
going to regret
Wait, why am I so upset?
Took toll on me like I got overhead
Wait, why am I so upset?
Took toll on me like I owe Goldman Sachs
Got to fight these caged demons
Daydreaming
Track Name: Drink Up Suckas
Drink up suckas hahaha

We headed outta Cali
Guns blazin' for the sunset
Two desperadoes headed straight for Vegas
Full throttle
The freeways jam packed
I pulled the periscope
We goin full suds
Park them waters bro
We doin' 99
But Johnny Law was watchin'
Time to blast off
George Jetson ya'll
See them city lights
Keep on flashin' by
No one stoppin' now
Let's ride

Drink up

We raised our glasses to the city that would soon be gone
No more picket fences
No more green lawns
It's just a desert now
The way it used to be
No more Wynn casinos
Retirees
We told them many times - ya gotta conserve the water
but the heat just got - hotter and hotter
But they didn't listen - to what we said
They just kept on buildin' and - makin' bread
So we're commin' with a offer that they can't refuse
We've got the goods they want for their dried up blues
So drink up suckas
drink up suckas
drink up drink up drink up drink up

Hey man.. I need a fix.. you got that good water? I'm so parched. I want to water my lawn.
Yeah.. you know we have what you need. You want a bottle? A jug? We've even got the water coolers with us today.
I'll take it all! Give it to me!

We hope you like our H20 and now there's something you should know
The water you're taking isn't free it comes with a quite a hefty fee
All the money that you done stole - from all the people in casinos
You've gotta give it back now don't delay - You better get started right away
Pay up suckas
Pay up suckas
pay up pay up

Track Name: 3am
In his darkest hour
Closing the door behind him
Longing for a pancake
In this hour when no one is around
at 3am

At 3am were you sleeping
When the pancake man was creeping
To the 24 hour diner
Life is pounding at your door
Demanding that you live it more
While you're sleeping
It's 3am

It's a short walk up the hill
To a road that he finds empty
A skyline to the north
A skylines never the same at 3am
There is a 15 minute wait
But that doesn't stop him
He needs his gingerbread man pancake
Gingerbread man pancake
At his favorite seat at the bar
Everyone expects him at 3am

At 3am were you sleeping
When the pancake man was creeping
To the 24 hour diner
Life is pounding at your door
Demanding that you live it more
While you're sleeping
It's 3am

Finishing his last bite
Pausing to ponder life
Leaving a 10 and some change
And back out into the night
Across the empty road
And back down the hill

The moon beaming through the trees
He falls into bed at 3am

At 3am were you sleeping
When the pancake man was creeping
To the 24 hour diner
Life is pounding at your door
Demanding that you live it more
While you're sleeping
It's 3am
3am
3am
3am
3am
3am
3am
Track Name: City Hall (Demo)
You wait wait wait for the city
You wait wait wait in the city hall
You wait wait wait for the city
You wait wait wait in the city hall

I'm starting to wonder where my taxes go
(so slow, so slow)
This giant system it moves so slow
Why do I put my trust in government
When government doesn't trust me

You wait wait wait for the city
You wait wait wait in the city hall
You wait wait wait for the city
You wait wait wait in the city hall

I could be sleeping up under a tree
(nap nap, nap nap)
Or having fun dancing under the sun
But since I put my trust in government
I've been sitting here for hours and hours

Well your trust in government was your first mistake
Ya shoulda known they're all a bunch of fakes
They're crooks, they're criminals, they're all corrupt
come on man, don't you know what's up?

I called the president to see if he could make a change
(yes we can, yes we can)
But all I got was
-Please remain on hold, the next available operator will be right with you-
You could put your trust in government but government
They don't trust you

You wait wait wait for the city
You wait wait wait in the city hall
You wait wait wait for the city
You wait wait wait in the city hall

It goes tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock
It goes tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock
Track Name: Ocean City
Some swim, some don't
None of the buildings float
There's no smog in the sky and the parking is free
Sinking feeling truth revealing unappealing - disaster
3 million people into the sea
Living their lives in an ocean city

Soggy mountain fake breast stroke
The rich can live under the golden moat
Beamers float by but the mercedes sink
Sinking feeling truth revealing unappealing - disaster
3 million people into the sea
Living their lives in an ocean city

Lalalalalalalalalalala

San Berny Beach next to the Orange Palisades
Sinking feeling truth revealing unappealing - disaster
3 million people into the sea
Living their lives in an ocean city

Or are you feeling mean like a rotten jelly bean?
Is your body looking right?
Are you pants fitting tight?
Are we really gonna stay up all night?
Am I ready for you?
Are you ready for me?
Are we as ready as we're gonna be?
