Track Name: Last Stop on the Merry-Go-Round
Last stop on the Merry-Go-Round
Am I here or upside down?
I just wanna ride it one more time…..
Just like before

Maybe you just picked the wrong parents
Such a long, long, time ago
But you know you won’t hold on forever
Just like before

Last stop on the Merry-Go-Round
Track Name: Coward
Yeah, I’m a coward
You say it like it’s a bad thing
You know you gotta go with something you know

And my alcoholic friends are better than your alcoholic friends
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
My alcoholic friends are better than your alcoholic friends

Yeah, I’m a coward
You know it just comes naturally
No special training, no correspondence course

And my alcoholic friends are better than your alcoholic friends
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
And my alcoholic friends are better than your alcoholic friends

Yeah, I’m a coward
You say it like it’s a bad thing
You know you gotta go with something you know

And my alcoholic friends are better than your alcoholic friends
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah
And my alcoholic friends are better than your alcoholic friends

Your alcoholic friends
Track Name: The Loneliest Girl in the World
She hasn’t got the strength to lift her head from the bed
Consequently you won’t see me pitching in
Lying on the couch softly curled
The loneliest girl in the world

She doesn’t want to do just what her mother did
Cause she doesn’t like women’s lib
Lying on the couch softly curled
The loneliest girl in the world

Are you ready to pick out china patterns?
Don’t they think you know what you’re doing?

She hasn’t got the strength to lift her head from the bed
Consequently you won’t see me pitching in
Lying on the couch softly curled
The loneliest girl in the world
Track Name: The Boy with the Plexiglas Head
The boy with the Plexiglas head has a definite problem
Everyone can read his mind but he can’t seem to get out of his head

It’s just a box meant to keep everything from falling out
Poor, poor boy
A clean, soft cloth won’t help you now

The boy with the Plexiglas head
Can’t keep his mind on things
He’s paranoid about what people might think

The boy with the Plexiglas head
Knows his thoughts will escape him
With nothing to stop them
Not even his skin

It’s just a box meant to keep everything from falling out
Poor, poor boy
A clean, soft cloth won’t help you now

Poor, poor boy
A long-sleeved coat won’t help you now
A burst of energy won’t help you now
One tiny pill won’t help you now

The boy with the Plexiglas head has a definite problem
Everyone can read his mind but he can’t seem to get out of his head

It’s just a box meant to keep everything from falling out
Poor, poor boy
A clean, soft cloth won’t help you now
Track Name: Ted's Place
Five days of reality is more than I can take
I’ll bet you looked pretty good back in the day
And that’s the last thing she needs to hear
So she’ll go back to crying in her beer

You look really good
From really, really, really, really far away
If I get far enough you’ll be gorgeous

I’ve been drinking
All night and day
Drinking ‘till I can’t drink no more
Is it just me or is this place getting crowded?
Or am I just seeing double?

You look really good
From really, really, really, really far away
If I get far enough you’ll be gorgeous

Family reunion
We’re gonna need another shovel
Hey, where did everybody go?

Family reunion
We’re gonna need another shovel
Buy another round and I’ll be on my way

Five days of reality is more than I can take
I’ll bet you looked pretty good back in the day
And that’s the last thing she needs to hear
So she’ll go back to crying in her beer

You look really good
From really, really, really, really far away
If I get far enough you’ll be gorgeous
Track Name: Heather to Fall
I know a girl named Heather
She’s got my friend in a real bad way
He talks about her always

Heather to Fall

I’ve got a friend named Joe
Thinks he’s in love but he’s really obsessed
He talks about her always

Heather to Fall

I don’t mean to sound so cynical
It wouldn’t have to be so clinical
But there should be some way to arrange it
So my girl can’t become a free agent

Still tries to show he’s no average Joe
Seems like we don’t see his face anymore
Sits by his phone and waits for her call

Heather to Fall
Track Name: Dear Julia
Dear Julia
I wish I would have written you sooner
But I don’t know what to say and I don’t know what to say
When I don’t know what to say and I don’t know what to say

Dear Julia
I’m trying to make it clearer
Dear Julia
I’m trying to make it clearer
But I don’t know how to say
What I don’t how to say

Don’t worry
Don’t be in such a hurry
We’ve got nothing but time

Dear Julia
I wish I had told you sooner
But I don’t know a way to find the words to say

Don’t worry
Don’t be in such a hurry
We’ve got nothing but time
Dear Julia
I wish I would have written you sooner
But I don’t know what to say and I don’t know what to say
When I don’t know what to say and I don’t know what to say

I always thought I’d tell her tomorrow
Track Name: Houdini of Love
Just like Spiderman he won’t be trapped in web of his own lies
And just like Ironman you won’t get through his tough exterior

On and on, and on and on, and on and on
He goes through feelings
On and on, and on and on, and on and on
He won’t relent

He did it again
How did he escape?
He’s Superman
Without a cape

Houdini of Love

Just like the Incredible Hulk
Don’t be surprised when he changes before your eyes
And just like he done before
Don’t be surprised when he’s gone in a flash

On and on, and on and on, and on and on
He goes through feelings
On and on, and on and on, and on and on
He won’t relent

He did it again
How did he escape?
He’s Superman
Without a cape

Houdini of Love

Houdini of Love
Track Name: Rodeo
Welcome to the rodeo
I hope you have a real good time
And while you’re here don’t you worry about a thing
All the smiling faces looking right at you

Welcome to the rodeo
Looks like you got here just in time
There’s lots of things for a little boy like you
All the smiling faces looking right at you

Looking back on all the things we used to do
Makes me feel like we were somewhere else
And looking back at all the people I once knew
Makes me wonder where they’ve all gone

Welcome to the rodeo
I guess you’re wondering why you’re here
But while you’re here don’t you worry about a thing
All the smiling faces looking right at you

Looking back on all the things we used to do
Makes me feel like we were somewhere else
And looking back at all the people I once knew
Makes me wonder where they’ve all gone
Track Name: Gene Pool Party
Gene Pool Party
Hey let’s drop another bomb
DNA strands twisting the night away

Gene Pool Party
Oops there goes another spill
Deoxyribonucleic acid all over the floor

One eye two eye three eye four
Some have one nose
But some have more

Gene Pool Party
Clean it up with paper towels
Big reactor glowing like a thousand suns

No need to get excited
It’s just a little glitch
It’s just a bad microwave
Don’t worry, we’ll get that fixed

Gene Pool Party
Just like it happened before
Homer Simpson sleeping on the job again

Gene Pool Party
Hey let’s drop another bomb
DNA
DNA

Gene Pool Party
Track Name: Killing Time
We’ll throw you in the slammer
Just for killing time
Slap the handcuffs on you
If you can’t make up your mind

Give me solitary
Just water and a crust
I’ll pace the floors all night
And kick up all of the dust

We’ll give you back your money
If you’d only go away
Or take the handcuffs off you
If only for a day

Give me solitary
A place to hang my head
I’ll pace the floors all night
Between the living and the dead

Show me all the options
Blur my tired eyes
Tell me all my choices
Fog my tired mind

We’ll throw you in the slammer
Just for killing time
Slap the handcuffs on you
If you can’t make up your mind

Give me solitary
Just water and a crust
I’ll pace the floors all night
And kick up all of the dust
Track Name: I'm Not Over You
When I think about it
Don’t know what to do about it
When I dream about it
I don’t know how to talk about it

I’m not over you
I’m under you

Every time I try to forget you
Something in my mind won’t let me
Every face I seem to run into to
Every time I look, it’s still you

I’m not over you
I’m under you
Track Name: Nonsense Patrol
I’m running with the nonsense patrol
Take yourself lightly
Take yourself lightly

I’m screwing up the best that I can
Take yourself lightly
Take yourself lightly

I’ll come back to haunt you
Mark your calendar
Let me tell you some more lies
From the big book in the corner

I’m ignoring it as much as I can
Take yourself lightly
Take yourself lightly

Take yourself lightly
Take yourself lightly
Track Name: Green with Envy
Snippy bitches with teacup fingers
Perfume sense but odors linger
Clutching at the strings of the purse
King Midas in reverse

Fading queens from a prior age
All will scamper to the center stage
Clutching at the strings of the purse
“Oh, my beauty is my curse”

Round and round it goes
And where it stops … nobody knows
Once the queen you’ll last as long
Till the younger one comes along

Snippy bitches with teacup fingers
Perfume sense but odors linger
Clutching at the strings of the purse
King Midas in reverse
Track Name: Snack
I want a snack
Because I’ve been a good boy
And I deserve a treat sometimes

I want a snack
Because I’ve been a good girl
And I deserve a treat sometimes

I want a snack
I want a snack
I want a snack
I want a snack
