Track Name: Ambulances and Starships
I know that you love me
But you hurt me
When you want me to be
Someone else than my self
Because that’s all I want to be

O can’t you see
that I need to be
Free from all the chains
holding me down?

Listen to me, will you please?
I promise that I’ll try to please
If you just let me
Be the way that I want to be.

Listen to me will you please?
I promise that I’ll try to please
If you let me be my way
I promise that we’ll be together forever.

I know that you do mean well,
But I think that I need a star ship,
So I can fly away to a distant planet
Where I can be alone and sit on the rocks
And just cry about anything that I’d like.
Track Name: Song Loathing
Did you want to let go?
Did you want to step back?
Did you think that things were okay?

Did you want to relax?
Did you want to take a pill?
Did you want to sleep the day away?

Well I’ve got plans and money
Plenty places to hide, a new haircut,
Some shoes, and lots of time

Everyone that I meet
will fall under my spell
As I sing and dance
they’ll all clap and yell

Too bad that they’re fake
too bad that they’re dead
And I’m stuck with this
stupid song in my head
Track Name: It Could Be Better, It Could Be Worse
I don’t want to move
From this hole
I dug up under you
Because it feels good
To be by myself
With no one else around.

When the sun shines
I will duck my head and go behind
A rock where it is dark and damp
And I can be alone.

If you come upon my sad hole
You best turn around and run off
Because I’ll pinch your face
With my great big claw.

I like to roll around in the dirt
When there’s no one else around.
Not a sound creeps out from anywhere,
And I can be happy.

I don’t want to move
From this hole I dug up under you
Because it feels good to be by myself
With no one else around.
Track Name: Who Needs?
Too many times,
Too many times we yell.
Too many times
It stinks like hell.

Too many times
I hear the same sad song.
Too many times
I’m the one who’s wrong.

Too many times
I wake up in the night
Too many times
I don’t feel all right.

Too many times,
Too many times we yell
Too many times
It stinks like hell.
Track Name: Commercial Music
This is my movie,
And it’s staring you.
And I must say
That the roles you play
Really flip my lid.

Commercial music
For my inflated soul
And your job now
Is to knock it down.

The sky is falling
Down on my head.
Commercial music
for my punctured soul
Track Name: The Ballroom
I was surrounded by concrete.
It tasted secure.
I used to play in my bare feet,
But not anymore

It started with the chemicals
That seeped into my lungs
Inhale some smoke and choke

I moved away
From the shapes
With my glasses
And my hair.

This place of grass
Will be my new home now.

I sat indoors.
I had no reason
To smell the sun.
And I waited.
Track Name: Water Fall Music/ Red Ford Bronco
I’ll let you drive
My red Ford Bronco
If you promise
To return it to me
At the proper time.

Then we will go
To the movies.
We will laugh
And eat the popcorn
from the floor.

I really, really wish
You didn’t have a gun.
