Track Name: Rock Song
Bono says he'll save us
That's why he's still famous
You don't need excuses
To be a rock and roll star

What would you do
When we don't need you
Where would you stand
So close to the end

Bowie wants spontaneous
So he kills off stardust
Anything to stay relevant
You're a rock and roll star

Bono says he'll save us
That's why he's still famous
You don't need excuses
To be a rock and roll star

What would you do
When we don't need you
Where would you stand
So close to the end

What would you do
When we don't need you
Where would you stand
So close to the end

What would I do
We're all aging too
Where would we stand
When we grow old like them

Dylans' changed at last
His hands so cold so fast
Maybe I'm not really there
......
Track Name: Manic Pixie Girl
Lovely free spirit
Detached from her fits
Honest to impulse
You bright-eyed bitch

Epilepsy
Epilepsy
Epilepsy
Manic pixie girl

Little by little
With boredom and time
She'll wean herself slowly
You'll fall behind

Track Name: Joe Jonas
Joe Jonas
Man you think you're so pure
Joe Jonas
You're a corporate rock whore
A corporate rock whore like-

Joe Jonas
Man you think you're so pure

You're a corporate rock whore

Joe Jonas
Man you think you're so pure

You're a corporate rock whore

Nick, Joe and Kevin
Nick, Joe and Kevin

Together all the way
Track Name: TTY
Running through the freeway
Never takes the highway
Neither by the low way
Watchu gonna say?!

Oh Tan Too Yong
Tan Too Yong

Venice secured the spice trade
Bolstering the city-state
Nothing left to say
TTY for Doge!

Oh Tan Too Yong
Tan Too Yong
Track Name: (Frequent) Traveller
I've been running around
From town to town
Making wonderful rounds
Cause I'm not pinned down

I've been dreaming of you
Till I come to
I don't wanna go home
Where I'm not alone

They've been saving the tools
That tear the walls
An endorphin of sound
That breaks them all

I know I'm not smart
And I don't mind
At least I don't talk
Out of time

If there is a God
I don't have a chance
I'd rather feel his hate
Than indifference

If there is a God
I don't have a chance
I'd rather feel his hate
Than indifference
Track Name: Hamsterdam
Mombassa eat da poo poo
Uh he make big big doo doo
Her heart is made of steel
But he got big big will

Track Name: Cold Food
One day I come back
Home from school
Lots of homework undone
Tired as a fool

My stomach growls at me
Makes me feel so unhappy
I'd kill for anything a little right now
But all there is is just this

FRIGGIN' RICE
COLD AS ICE
FRIGGIN' RICE
COLD AS-

And then another time
My brother he was sick
Had to have his food early
Just to pop some pills

My stomach growls at me
Makes me feel so unhappy
I'd kill for anything a little right now
But all there is is just this

FRIGGIN' RICE
COLD AS ICE
FRIGGIN' RICE
COLD AS-

Kumarr!
Track Name: I Eat Cow
I eat cow
I'm not proud
But at least I still have you

Facebook said you were dead
You could have tweeted it out instead
Your followers thought-out & fed
With your innards pulled out & spread

Cause I eat cow
I'm not proud
But at least I still have
Meat & bone
And you
Track Name: Leash
I know I have a brain
A messy messy brain
And people always say
It's like a heavy machine

A heavy machine!

Well you can say I'm word-gay
I'm always into wordplay
Never seeing any way
I gotta pet his fur

I pet his fur!

I should have bought him a leash
I unleashed the beast
Unleash the beast
Unleash the beast
Unleash!

I should have bought him a leash
I unleashed the beast
Unleash the beast
Unleash the beast
Unleash!
Track Name: Pedigree
Sleep tight goodnight
May all your dreams be right
Sweet face innocent grace
You'll break to keep this way

Pedigree pedigree
Thorns were never on your head
Pedigree pedigree
You can't tell body from bread
Pedigree in your mind
The most destructive force is time
You just wait wait and see
They won't stop dying on me
Pedigree pedigree
Pedigree

Don't exhume what remains
It only brings you pain
So fast it never lasts
One day this too will pass
Track Name: Apple Of My Eye Demo (Bonus Track)
Apple of my eye
Apple of my eye
Oh hot damn
My left side's blind

Oh my god
This is insane
There's no balance left
In my brain

Apple of my eye
Apple of my eye
Oh hot damn
My left side's blind

Oh my god
This is insane
There's no balance left
In my brain
