Intro: Dog Heaven Towers of boxes Bottles and ashes Of dead pets and high hopes I know that you find it distasteful You reject the notion That there is a special place we all go when we die But Dog Heaven is real, and it’s beautiful! I’ve seen it in my dreams at night Everybody says so Wishes are just little ghosts Floating and rising into the empty sky You don’t have to worry my friend It’s not the end There’s no such thing as time Just keep on believing There has to be meaning! When you’re gone you’re not gone you’ve simply closed your eyes

End of Daze What’s your problem? Is it so bad you have to Run run away Run away as fast as you can? You’re already so gone Gone A stranger’s eyes have found a home inside your Weary head. Deep inside you the city burns I don’t know what it is about this place That everybody seems to be fine Just killing time until the end of days Sleep to forget Sleep to dream about anything Anything at all Sleep will save you From all the monsters that await your waking Like the executioner awaits the gavel’s fall What’s your problem? Is it so bad you have to Lock lock yourself away in your dreams? Count your heartbeats As long as you’re inside this cage You will never truly know What it is to be free Just keep on believing There has to be meaning When you’re gone you’re not gone

Any1 But U Our house is a mess And I don’t sleep at night But I love you the best Even when the money’s tight Who am I to question Seasonal depression? Let’s get some rest We’ve been worrying an ass-ton I’ve got a band And one day we’ll hit the big time You’re gonna write The novel that defines This generation Kerouac and Chrissy Hynde But until then We’ll find a way to Get high I wouldn’t want to spend my life with Anyone but you You’ll never need To rescue me Like a knight in shining armor You understand That I am My own hero and savior If we fight It’s side-by-side To ensure maximum destruction You’re the only one Who’s ever been able To endure Cohabitation My life wouldn’t be half as fun With anyone but you And I probably did it wrong I’ve never written a love song For anyone but you Our house is a mess And I don’t give a shit I love you the best And I don’t care who knows it

Panic Pt 2 Last night I dreamt I was alive I tried to hide But they all could see They all could say Today I found that I am found Among the ashes of The life I was living Broken and bleeding I took my chances on a lark Thought I was ready to embark On a journey Nothing could hurt me Besides who needs a reason When you’re lost at sea When you’re up a tree When you know they all can see Being uninvolved is such a drag Spend my time just fighting back And listening to you And wishing for something to do I’m so bored I can’t stand it The ship is going down But I can’t abandon it The ship is going down But this is no time to quit The water’s freezing cold But I can hardly feel it

Relativity Peeling my face off And putting it back on the Shelf where it belongs Until the next time Feeling the spaces Between my organs filling Up with dark matter From my collapsed star Your love is fleeting A sugar high It gets me by When I’m fiending And brings me relief The more that you feed me The more this supermassive Black hole inside me Grows out of control A prison in my own head Gluing my face on So smooth and plastic To conceal imperfections Lying within Do you think the universe Requires validation To confirm Its own existence? Celestial bodies A figment of collective Imagination A vision so strange Oh, what a burden Carrying the weight of God and Creation In our human brains A prison of our own design The faces we hide behind But space and time see with human eyes Peeling my face off What do you see, what do And gluing my face on You see, What do you see God and Creation What do you see, do you see Oh what a burden! Do you?

Let Them Eat Cake I’m trying as hard as I know I can To avoid making plans But this grind is a raw deal And I’m caving in I’m being crushed by this Box that I’ve Put myself In Stumble through to the next midnight special Push past the threshold Of what’s right And what’s in Ain’t it a good time To wait in line, my friend? Trying to Hold onto Where it ends And where you begin What’s on the other side For the factory workers with cigarette wives? The dyed-in-the-wool sleepwalkers dying inside Their daytime lives? Watching the news till my eyes wanna bleed Can’t escape the machine It’s a war, it’s a massacre, it’s a disease But it’s fine It’s all fine Pour the wine Won’t you pass the cake please? Here’s to the morning light And the drifters who didn’t wake their sleeping wives The mothers of babies and junkies Who didn’t sleep again Last night

Bra Song I don’t wanna wear a bra Ah ah la la la la la la I don’t wanna wear a bra Ah ah la la la la la la I don’t wanna wear a bra Ah ah la la la la la Anymore And if people laugh at me I’ll tell them to go to hell They are not the boss of me And they can worry about themselves I’m not trying to hold your hand Or tell you what to do But come to think of it, too I don’t wanna shave my le- Le le le le le le le le le legs I don’t wanna shave my le- Le le le le le le le le le legs I don’t wanna shave my Le le le le le le le le le le le legs Anymore And if people stare at me I’ll tell them to go to hell They are not the boss of me And they can worry about themselves I’m not trying to take a stand By telling you what to do Cuz you’re the boss of you And you should do what you want To do do do do do do do do You should do whatever you want To do do do do do Because you know You are the boss of you And only you Women in our society are Fighting a war Reproductive scrutiny And as low as 55 cents to every dollar! And people think that feminists are prudes Or bloodthirsty man-hating whores Well One thing I know for sure Is your appearance doesn’t dictate who you are So remember that it’s your call And next time you go to the mall Don’t buy a bra Ah ah la la la la la! Cuz you don’t have to wear a bra Ah ah la la la la la la! But if you want to you should totally wear a Bra ah ah la la la la la! Do what you wanna do Cuz you’re the boss of you

Not So Pretty Feeling not so pretty in the middle of the night I’ve got a glass of wine and a fluorescent light I’ve got a fridge full of leftovers, feelings and spite I’ve got a bottle to my left and its contents to my right And there’s a morning fast approaching In which the real life lies But my body isn’t tired And my brain is stirring fry And my hands are talking nonsense As my face becomes my eyes I don’t know if I will make it I don’t know if I’ll survive Woe, it’s swell Woe, might as well Woe They say if you look forward You can’t see what’s behind But I’ve been staring at the sun so long It’s making me blind Spend my witching hours Searching the walls for a sign But my dreamcatchers are empty And my voodoo dolls resigned And there’s a morning fast approaching On the coattails of the night I’ve got one foot in tomorrow As the birds begin to cry And there’s blood all over everything And I’m sure it isn’t mine! The night is to the daytime As hello is to goodbye Woe, hear the church bells Woe, hear them swell Woe Magic potions don’t come cheap Buy a song and pay with sleep Buy a song and pay with sleep Magic potions don’t come cheap Pray the lord my soul to keep Pray the lord my soul to keep And if I die before I wake It’s because I didn’t brake Woe, goddammit Woe, goddammit Woe, goddammit Woe

Best Friend Blues All of my friends keep on breaking their own hearts Breaking their backs And breaking apart Forsaking what’s left of Whatever they’ve got All of my friends keep on breaking their own hearts So come on and lean on me I’ll bear the weight And should the burden And stomach the ache I’ll take the fall so you can take flight Come on and lean on me I’ll bear the slight No nothing’s required Hey what are friends for? And when I’m eating dust In your spot on the floor Don’t bother to help I’ll be fine I’m sure All of my friends keep on breaking their own hearts And when it’s over Going back for more
