Track Name: Stupid Daniel
STUPID DANIEL

Stupid Daniel looking at the sun, you’re gonna burn your eyes out boy
Stupid Daniel look at how he runs, with his arms out like a girl

La la la

Stupid Daniel standing in the rain watching all the puddles grow
Stupid Daniel whatcha thinking of, maybe you could walk on water

We wanna know what we wanna know, and we wanna see what we wanna see, and we want to go where we want to go but it’s not up to you or me

Stupid Daniel head is in the clouds, you’re dreaming all of your life away
Stupid Daniel always by himself never says a word out loud

We wanna know what we wanna know, and we wanna see what we wanna see, and we want to go where we want to go but it’s not up to you or me and we wanna do what we wanna do and we wanna fly but we cannot fly and we wanna try almost everything under the sky

Stupid Daniel looking at the sun, he knows more than anyone
Track Name: Piggyback Ride
PIGGYBACK RIDE

I’m gonna give her a piggyback ride over to the other side of this world…of this world
I’m gonna get abs of steel, twice a week and then she will be all mine for all time

And she’ll say I’m in love with a beautiful man that I don’t hardly understand at all

I’m gonna win a million bucks and drive it in a monster truck to her house…over to her place
I’m gonna be all I can be like the army man on my TV you better believe it

And she’ll say I’m in love with a beautiful man that I can’t hardly understand at all
Is this the best that you’ve got she’ll say
But I’m in love with a beautiful girl means more to me than all the world you know

I’m gonna bake a super pill for her to take and then she will trade my heart for her heart

And she’ll say I’m in love with a beautiful man that I can’t hardly understand at all
Is this the best that you’ve got she’ll say
But I’m in love with a beautiful girl means more to me than all the world you know
Track Name: Dealer Plates
DEALER PLATES

She’s got dealer plates in her window a 38 in her handbag, unfortunately for him this will be the end

It’s been two bad years, seven horrible months, eighteen unbearable days and nine hours too long

She’s got dealer plates in her window
a 38 on the front seat
unfortunately for him
this will be the end

The world is bright and clean
and bruised up like anything
she can hardly leave the house at all
She will put 1000 pounds
of goodbyes between them and
there will never be and ever again

She’s got dealer plates on her window
a 38 in her right hand,
unfortunately for him
this will be the end

Somebody call the cops
He can’t get the bleeding to stop
He’s done such a terrible thing
She’s done such an awful thing
Track Name: Like a Boy
LIKE A BOY

I saw you looking at me I was looking at you too

Is there somewhere we could go where we could be alone

You are a butterfly and I am a butterfly and we are two butterflies just hanging in the summer wind

What did you say to me I thought I heard you say something to me…but maybe I was wrong

And if I can I will be yours for all time

Why do we do this to ourselves when I love you so damn much and you love me so damn much

What can your father do I hate it when he treats me like a boy
Track Name: Dope Wings
DOPE WINGS

I was driving through the desert with my 40 on the floor I didn’t have a clue what I was driving for but I just had to get there and I had to get there fast nothing else would satisfy

I was zooming through the ocean with my pedal to the floor, the anchor was inside the boat jack. It doesn’t really matter where you is or was before as long as you got a way to get back

I’ll be burning up in heaven with these dope wings on my back

It don’t really matter what they have down here cause I’ll be like flash Gordon in the atmosphere. Giving all the planets a little shove, and wearing a space helmet like a beetle bug

If you got a hundred I got 50 more, we’ll wish upon the sky like it’s an open door and you can have whatever you want or need

You look at me like I was 3 and I belong in your arms
The only one I wanna see more you never got to me before but I never wanna see you leave my side again
Track Name: Belly Up
BELLY UP

It’s another year I’m ready to get up again newer than I’ve ever been before
What a stupid joke to make believe you have control belly up against the deep dark sky…oh why

It’s another year and feeling like I do again I don’t know if I can pretend
In the future or that anything will ever be ever be, ever be so bright…I might

Anyway it’s ok, it’s ok
Track Name: Invisible
INVISIBLE

The shattered pieces of my soul collide with nothing whole there’s nothing out here to break anybodys fall. So I move through this emptiness putting motion to the test and looking for the meaning of it all, reality dissolves.

And I’m invisible tonight doing what I can to feel like I’m alive

I trace my heroes one by one stamped in patterns I become the likenesses of everyone I see. Still it always comes to trading up without a thought of what it does to who you are or who you used to be. I see everyone but me

Cause I’m invisible tonight and anyone can see there’s nothing left to hide
I’m invisible tonight and you won’t notice when I’m gone, I’ve been in this place too long

She came to me on angels wings she touched my heart to set me free, a vision laid along a life long curse. Still I wound up alone again somehow and I’m wondering who she’s touching now. Visions are all I have left of her and I can’t decide what’s worse a heart of stone or a love that burns

Invisible tonight what I would not give to have her by my side I’m invisible tonight and you won’t notice when I’m gone, I’ve been in this place too long
Track Name: Frozen Through
FROZEN THROUGH

EVERYTHING THAT YOU ARE MAKES ME WISH FOR HOME
EVERYTIME THAT YOU LEAVE I WANNA TURN TO STONE
EVERYTHING THAT I FEEL CONFUSES ME TO DEATH
I COULD BREATHE BUT I WON’T I’LL SAVE WHAT I HAVE LEFT

BE MY FIRE MELT ME DOWN
YOU MIGHT START FROM THE INSIDE OUT
TAKE IT SLOWLY WHATEVER YOU DO
I’M FROZEN THROUGH

FIRST YOU CROSS THE FINE LINES YOU DRAW UPON YOURSELF
THEN YOU PULL THE HEARTSTRINGS YOU FIND ON SOMEONE ELSE
IT SHOULD BE SO EASY, BUT NOTHING EVER IS
I KNOW THAT I’VE NEVER EVER FELT LIKE THIS

CH

THAT’S ME MELTING UNDER YOU
THAT’S MY HEART I’M PULLING THROUGH

BE MY FIRE MELT ME DOWN
YOU MIGHT START FROM THE INSIDE OUT
I COULD EASILY BE BROKEN IN TWO
I’M FROZEN THROUGH
Track Name: Supergrey
SUPERGREY

The evidence is in and it’s going my way now
From super screwed up to kinda ok now
You can’t touch a four-alarm man with the dashing looks and coca puff tan

It’s a perfect day for us to play the sun is gone it’s super gray x2

There’s super skinny people riding super skinny horses
And thousands of ships will be blown off courses
The golden child has come up lame in the presence of the man who knows no shame

It’s a perfect day for us to play the sun is gone it’s super gray x2

There’s a sign in the sky and it’s pointing right at me now
It say’s the arrows from the sparrows will be falling at my feet now
A plastic pope, a jellybean, a fleet of honest submarines

It’s a perfect day for us to play the sun is gone it’s super gray x6
Track Name: Sleepy
SLEEPY

Rosey didn’t lie the equipment was dry it blew up in her eye and she got sleepy

She’s floating on a cloud of zzz’s
Buzzing like a basket full of motorcycle bees
But she’s wideawake in her own dreams where she is never sleepy

The race was going well not a saviors chance in hell he could lose unless he fell or just got sleepy

He’s running down a train of zzz’s
Chugging like a basket full of motorcycle bees
But he’s wideawake in his own dream where she is never sleepy

The kids have finally grown my wife god rest her soul my life is now my own but I’m so sleepy

I’m holding on to all my dreams
Buzzing like a basket full of motorcycle bees
Where everything is made for me and I am never sleepy
Track Name: Barnaby Jonze
BARNABY JONZE

I got the TV Barnaby Jonze
Glassy-eyed pigeon boned
It’s too late foe me to fight
I’m mesmerized

I saw the monster over japan
Heavy feet, clumsy hands
Showing off with his breath
It smelled like death

I let the blue light into my room
A quarter past half past June
And I may never escape
I’ve seen my fate

I got the TV Barnaby Jonze
Glassy-eyed pigeon boned
It’s too late foe me to fight
I’m crystallized

The collector coin and the knife attack he lost that weight but it all came back gonna get rich quick get rich quicker put a quicken on my ticker then I get some liquor I know what you’re thinking I know what you thought your heart is pounding like a tick tick tock said I was a ghost but you always wanna doubt me the day my sweater showed up without me

I’m vaporized
Track Name: Bluebird
BLUEBIRD

Bluebird there in the tree tops
lost in a daydream,
a longing a craving
Bluebird you never stop singing
and words can’t express what
a song without them does

Don’t be afraid of anything

Bluebird the sky is the limit
so fight while you’re in it
for flame or reward
Pick up your sword
Pick up your sword
