Track Name: You Don't Really Care
should I up and walk away?
think about a better part of my day
or should I open up to you?
with all the words you misconstrue

should I order out for food
would you like Chinese or maybe fondue
or is it time for some leftovers
our dessert is Russell Stover's
and when I look into your eyes I see
that you don't really care for me

is it time for us to talk?
cause if so I think I'll take a walk and
let you cool down until your done
because your angry voice is no fun
and when I look into your eyes I see
that you don't really care for me

I'm doing all that I can
to make me into your perfect man
but
I'm so tired of all the fighting
the back and forth's not so exciting
and when I look into your eyes I see
you're searching for what I'm supposed to be
and since you’re so upset should I just leave?
cause you don't really care for me
Track Name: Here, I Found Your Stupid Bike
I took a stroll around the block
one morning thick with all the raining
I didn't think with all my luck
one missing bike I would be gaining

I saw a hobo riding by
on one familiar looking schwinn
"o what a lovely bike," said I
that's when I noticed it was steven's

and I chased after that hobo
shouting halting words with gusto
I politely asked him
where he got that bastard bike
he responded curtly
with a right hook to my left eye

here I found your stupid bike
steven now you can stop calling
here I found your stupid bike
with a homeless man I'm brawling

I took a roundhouse to the face
I didn't know he knew karate
this really wasn't my place
as my only defense was pilates

I almost turned away and ran
but I knew I should stand my ground
this bum with moves out of japan
was blocking me from what I found

and so I battled with that hobo
using moves I learned from my uncle
we were so fatigued
that we both collapsed on the grass
I would've fallen asleep right there
but I was too busy laughing my ass off

here I found your stupid bike
steven now you can stop calling
here I found your stupid bike
with a homeless man I'm brawling

here I found your stupid bike
he gave it to me free of charge
here I found your stupid bike
now it's no longer at large
Track Name: Tony's Desert Adventure
tony gazed at cacti staring
back at him with prickles baring
souls so soft and jellylike,
he didn't know if he should fight
the dehydration overtaking,
or if instead he should partake in
sickly juices in the green
of cacti's prickly little leaves
the stories told of water stored
and found by those who holes had bored
into the plant's leathery flesh
a fiberistic icky mesh
he took a chance, removed the spines
and cracked the plant to look inside
and what he found made him feel ill,
he saw inside was filled with jelly

he was far from home in the desert alone

the ground was quite a mottled red
the martian landscape was his bed
and although he could breathe out here
he found that there was no one near
no martian, man, or humanoid
no anything to fill the void
just him and his soliloquies
and silent longing for a breeze
or maybe an oasis proper
palm trees and a spring of water
"there's no palm trees in arizona"
he thought, and he was right
you know ... ah

he was far from home in the desert alone

and he saw in the distance
his beautiful girlfriend
holding a glass of lemonade
when he came up to her
she was just a mirage

he was far from home in the desert alone

tony strove beyond his limit
won't be taken for a dimwit
mirages happen all the time
especially ones with lemon-lime
his girlfriend was a prickly pear
of this he was quickly aware
when puckered lips kissed killer spines
again, this happens all the time
and as the night crept over shoulders
made the landscape so much colder
fighting off the freezing chill
he crawled over a barren hill
and tony, who could go no more
had found what he was looking for
he leapt and said, "oh lordy lordy
there's interstate number 40!"

he was far from home in the desert alone
Track Name: Lady Bell
oh lady bell
oh lady bell
when you gonna give me the hard sell
oh doncha know
lady bell i love you do

oh lady bell
oh lady bell
i'm fallin' so hard for you can't you tell
oh doncha know
lady bell i love you so

when you wrap those arms around me
i get all jittery
and i can't wait to take you home tonight
all the boys are lined up behind ya
but i'll take them out with a windup
no i'm not afraid to fight for my love
with a push and a shove
Track Name: Fall Into A Hole
i just wanna fall into a hole
fall deeper than anyone else would go
i just wanna fall and fall
don't wanna see nothing at all
i just wanna fall into a hole

i just wanna smack your pretty face
institute your gruesome fall from grace
i just wanna smack away
til you can't see the light of day
i just wanna smack your pretty face

everyone’s been botherin’ me
past the point where i can see
the benefit of your argument of course
i wouldn’t do what i’ve been saying
but that doesn’t mean i’m not replaying it
twenty times in my head
twenty times in my head

i don't wanna be part of myself
wanna be part of something else
don't wanna see my skin and bones
show me something that ain't been shown
i don't wanna be part of myself

i wanna take some time off for a while
throw myself into a great big pile
of blankets round my comfy bed
and i won't wake up til i'm dead
i wanna take some time off for a while
Track Name: Snapshot of the Argument
and if you want to stay, you can stay
and if you want to go, there's the door
and if you want to snuggle tight, here's my arms, i'm wide open
lay our bodies to the floor

and the first thing is, i never lied
and the second thing is
and the third thing is, i always tried
to keep you safe, to keep you sound
to keep your feet on the ground
Track Name: Babe, I Love You
babe I love you
babe I love you
and I don't want you go
felt that we were strong
loved for so very long
baby I just don't want you to go

babe I love you
babe I love you
I don't wanna see you cry
the tears are brimming wide
I feel a pain right in my side
baby I don't wanna see you cry

I hope that you will find
a better man to treat you kind
worthy feet to fill my shoes

I'll kiss you goodbye
but you know that I won't cry
cause in the end you’re the one who loses
Track Name: I Wouldn't Have a Girl to Take Home
if I had a nickel for every time
a woman walked by who was really fine
well I'd have a hundred dollars or so
but I wouldn't have a girl to take home

if I had a dollar for every drink
I bought for a girl cause she looked pretty in pink
well I'd have a house on lake Tahoe
but I wouldn't have a girl to take home

all I wanna do is
make sweet love to you
but you don't even know my name
I tried to call your home
but no one got the phone
I guess that I'm the one to blame

if I had a sandwich for every gal
who had her arms around some other pal
well I'd have a meal fit for a man on a throne
but I wouldn't have a girl to take home
Track Name: Let it Die
Let it die. Get out of my mind.
We don't see eye to eye. Or hear ear to ear.
Don't you wish that we could forget that kiss ?
And see this for what it is. That we're not in love.

The saddest part of a broken heart
Isn't the ending, so much as the start

It was hard to tell. Just how I felt.
To not recognize myself. I started to fade (away, away, away).

After all. It won't take long to fall (in love).
Now I know what I don't want. I learned that with you.

The saddest part of a broken heart.
Isn't the ending, so much as the start.
The tragedy starts at the very first part.
Losing your mind for the sake of your heart.
The saddest part of a broken heart.
Isn't the ending, so much as the start.
Track Name: The Day We Burned Our House Down
tell the kids the fire's burning
and we'll roast marshmallows
in the heap of dying embers
is where we'll dry our toes

oh the house where we spent our lives
slowly crumbles into ash
and while we watch we secret high fives
for from the smoulder comes the cash

forget about the dog, he was too old anyway
he will be remembered
forget about the things that made you so unique
they were all built in taiwan
forget about the lawn

the day we burned our house down
was the best day of our lives
the day we burned our house down
and we didn't even try to contain it
i can't explain it
we all wanted it to burn
it lit up the town
the day we burned our house down

and we sat among the evergreens
awaiting our direction, awaiting our direction
and i kissed you by the fireside
in the moonlight

prechorus

chorus
Track Name: That Horse I Killed
that horse'll never ride again, said old petey
that horse'll never ride again, you'll see
but i showed him, yes i showed him
i took him to the vet for orthoscopic surgery
i took him to the stables for therapy
and i showed him, yes i showed him

old petey didn't trust me til i took that horse out for a ride
i was so annoyed with him i took that horse out on a whim
and rode that bastard till he dropped and died

that horse'll never ride again, said old petey
that horse'll never ride again, you'll see
but i showed him, yes i showed him
Track Name: When I'm Equity
ohhh!
when I was a lad
all I thoughts that I had
were how I would become a great actor

so I took me some classes
but my teachers were asses
figured school wasn't such a big factor

so I went show to show
with my headshot in tow
and a light little step in my shoe

and with each role I got
in this notebook I thought
of all the great things I would do

I'm gonna buy me a solid gold car
Oh boy I'm gonna go far
And I'm gonna play my guitar
in the hallway all I want to

I'm gonna live me a life of ease
All my vices I'm gonna appease
I've got all the expertise
yes it's the life for me
when I'm equity

now this is my directive
not to be so introspective
when in doubt I should consider myself lucky

with this brazen charm of mine
I'm sure I'll do just fine
in fact I think directors find me plucky

but when faced with such a luxury
I find I'm quite unusually
afraid of what I'll do when I'm on stage

and when times like these arise
I find I must reprise
my notebook, so I'll simply turn the page

I'm gonna eat me a seven course meal
steep myself in sex appeal
I'll negotiate a six-figure deal
and I'll do it with a smile

I'm gonna buy me a forty foot yacht
then return all the things that I bought
go out and buy a hundred more
yes it's the life for me
when I'm equity

and just so you know
all you people down below
can expect a thank you card when I'm a star
so just you wait and see
for the star I’m going to be
until then, stay where you are

all together now!

I'm gonna buy me a solid gold car
(a convertible!)
Oh boy I'm gonna go far
(inconceivable!)
And I'm gonna play my guitar in the hallway all I want to
(ditty)
I'm gonna live me a life of ease
(where’s my irish cream?)
All my vices I'm gonna appease
(mostly gambling)
I've got all the expertise
yes it's the life for me
when I'm ...

[key change]

I'm gonna eat me a seven course meal
[try the lobster bisque]
steep myself in sex appeal
[now that’s a bit of a risk]
negotiate a six-figure deal
and I'll do it with a smile
[sign on the dotted line]

buy me a forty foot yacht
[a convertible!]
then return all the things that I bought
[you’re despicable!]
go out and buy a hundred more
yes it's the life for me
when I'm equity
Track Name: Kittens & Puppies
kittens are super, kittens are great
everybody loves kittens, it's not too late
to pet their little fur, stroke their little ears
get a little misty-eyed and knock back a little beer
and tell that little kitten
all the bad news of your day
hey hey, cause they best thing about kittens is
kittens love to listen

puppies are lovely, puppies are grand
and sometimes little puppies fit in the palm of your hand
take 'em with you in a purse, or a little doggie backpack
and when you see that guy who fucked your wife
tell that puppy to attack
cause you trained him to kill
not to be a paperweight
hey hey, cause the best thing about puppies is
puppies love to kill people

oh clean up that cat poop
