Track Name: Lifetime Achievement Award
Die hard fans adored your hands
They loved your throat and quote unquote "you"
Hey, remember Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson really happened
Delta Echo Alpha Delta, walking on the moon forever

You are dead and buried, you are dead (Oh no)
That's being revised!
Even as we speak we're synthesizing blood and organs
Synthesizing heart and soul
Even Katy Perry knows you're dead (Oh no)
Won't she be surprised!
When we get your heart to start tomorrow
When you see the chart tomorrow you'll be number one

Bro, you look amazing
Really put together
It's like you haven't aged a day, oh
It's like we know what we're doing or something

You've been gone for way too long, like half a year
An entire career for some
Good luck getting into Heaven if you live past 27
Listen to the radiation put you back in circulation

You are dead and buried, you are dead (Oh no)
Oh, but you never died!
Even as we speak we're synthesizing blood and organs
Synthesizing heart and soul
Ain't no cemetary you can't shed (Oh no)
Ain't nowhere you can hide!
Don't be frightened of us
Soon enough you're gonna love us, just remember

This is your last ride ever, forever
Fill up your lungs, feel better
Look, it's you, good as new
New hands, new throat, new living tissue
You earned this new purpose
Lifetime achievement award

Don't be nervous baby
We put a billion eyes back on you
From the grave to the stage
You're a natural, babe!

You are dead and buried, you are dead (Oh no)
That's being revised!
Even as we speak we're synthesizing blood and organs
Synthesizing heart and soul
Even Katy Perry knows you're dead (Oh no)
Won't she be surprised!
When we get your heart to start tomorrow
When you see the chart tomorrow you'll be number one
(Oh no, oh no)
Track Name: Touch-Tone Telephone
I think it's time for you to know the awful truth
The truth about me, and the truth about you
'Cause you're a brand new species
Big cat, space Nazis, Robert Stack
God damn it, gonna snap, Leonard Nimoy
Call me back (Call me back)

I try to call you every day
I'm rehearsing what to say when the truth comes out (Of my very own mouth)
I've been working on a unified theory
If I make it through tonight everybody's gonna hear me out
'Cause I'm the right one
On my touch-tone, touch-tone telephone
I'm the only one
On your A.M., A.M. radio

Oh, I'm crying now, authentic tears
They flow out of me when I think about you
'Cause you're the only person in the world who'd understand
'Cause you're the only person in the world who'd understand the meaning of this
Oh My God
I try and I try and I try to make you listen to me

I try to call you every day
I'm rehearsing what to say when the truth comes out (Of my very own mouth)
I've been working on a unified theory
If I make it through tonight everybody's gonna hear me out
'Cause I'm the right one
On my touch-tone, touch-tone telephone
I'm the only one, hey!
On your A.M., A.M. radio

Don't hang up yet, I'm not done
I'm an expert, I'm the one
The one who was right all along
Better to be laughed at than wrong
I'm an expert in my field
UFOlogy, yes, it's all real
Ancient aliens, it's all true
I'm an expert just like you
And like you, I'm a genius before my time
Disbelieving, that's the real crime
Pretty soon they'll discover me in the Super-Sargasso Sea

I try to call you every day
What can I say when the truth comes out? (Of my very own mouth)
I've been working on a unified theory
If I make it through tonight everybody's gonna hear me out
(Now, now, now)
'Cause I'm the right one
On my touch-tone, touch-tone telephone
I'm the only one
On your A.M., A.M. radio
Track Name: Cabinet Man
The day they found me, I hadn't yet been played
Inside my workshop behind the old arcade
Electric desires had unraveled all my wires
Now I'm in the box for safekeeping
The news reporters reported that I died
But all my organs were living on inside
Circuit board to brain with two lungs collecting change
One big human heart gently beeping

You can't win me, I can't be beat
I won't hurt you unless you cheat
You can't see me behind the screen
I'm half human and half machine

Thank God for business, they let me take the floor
I stood so proudly, like I was going to war
Players soon appeared and I quickly was revered
This must be what love would have felt like
Such dedication, they came from miles away
With eyes so piercing, they'd wait their turn to play
In perfect patient lines because I was in their minds
I could do whatever I felt like (Whatever I felt like)

You can't win me, I can't be beat
I won't hurt you unless you cheat
You can't see me behind the screen
I'm half human and half machine

I'm happy for years and years
And only eating the occasional maintenance man
Only driving a few kids to madness
Maybe they were predisposed to madness, who knows?
I only want to have fun
But now they're telling me my days here are done
'Cause there's a little tiny box they make in Japan
And pretty soon it's gonna fit in your hand

It's getting lonely, it's getting hard to breathe
Ahe arcade's empty, I think it's Christmas Eve
Someone's broken in, now they're painting on my skin
Breaking me and taking my quarters
Bashing in my face with a crowbar
Kicking me and pushing me over
Now they see my blood on their sneakers

You can't win me, I can't be beat
I won't hurt you unless you cheat
You can't see me behind the screen
I'm half human and half machine
Track Name: No Eyed Girl
Oh, knowing what we know, knowing we don't know
This is gonna change our world
Feeling how I feel, I'll accept the unreal
If you be my no-eyed girl from nowhere mankind can go
There's too much light, blinding white
Your matter tells mine to scatter
It's alright, it's alright

From the moment that we met
I've been awake like I've never been awake in all my life
If I spoke your language I could tell you how I feel
But your language isn't real
In every myth there's a little bit of truth
But I cannot say a thing (I cannot say a thing)
Without proof, oh no

Knowing what we know, knowing we do not know
This is gonna change our world
I might go insane if I hear your full name
If you be my no-eyed girl from nowhere mankind can go
There's too much light, blinding white
Emotions, human implosions
It's alright, it's alright

Right before the kiss I noticed something in the air
Molecules existed when there should have been none there
Chemical reactions with the surface of your skin
Some will say my actions let the no-eyed people in

And I'd do it all again, and I'd do it all again, and I'd do it all again
Track Name: When He Died
When he died
Turns out he left behind a mansion full of other people's skulls
The odd thing is, they never found his own, when he died
When he died
He somehow left behind strange symbols on the floor beneath his corpse
Investigators said the wood was scorched, when he died

When he died they found so many scorpions inside his lungs
When he died the statues of his missing children cried
What was later found to be his blood

When he died (On a dark and stormy night)
They telephoned his wife (Who reacted with delight)
But gradually her voice began to fade to nothing
And the Laughing Record played
The Laughing Record played

When he died
They found a message etched into his spine
That said when he died an endless age of untold nightmares would be nigh
And the blood would make the seas run red

When he died (On a dark and stormy night)
A nearby shed caught fire (It simply caught alight)
And when they cleared the charred wood from the ground
Inside they found a painting of a clown (A creepy painting of a clown)
He'd painted it he was just a child
But scrawled upon the back was exactly when he died
When he died, when he died, when he died, when he died
Track Name: Sweet Bod
Your body is so sweet now, baby, I'm saying trick or treat now
You know I've got to have you, yeah, you sexy sweet cadaver
All wrapped up like a mummy, I'll cover you in honey
And wait a hundred years or so
You know, you know it isn't sexual (It isn't sexual)
Strictly confectional (Strictly confectional)
Strictly medicinal (Strictly medicinal)
If a little nontraditional

I'm digging up your coffin and pouring out the contents
Your sexy sweet solution is prime for distribution
Sweet bod

Your body's starting rumors of Mason jars of sweetness
Whose satisfied consumers have often claimed to witness
Some sexy shrinking tumors, a sweet return to fitness
They're just a hundred bucks or so
You know, you know it isn't sexual (It isn't sexual)
Strictly professional (Strictly professional)
Entrepreneurial (Entrepreneurial)
Oh, and what a sweet memorial

I'm digging up your coffin and pouring out the contents
Good God, I'm glad to see you
Won't you be my panacea?
Sweet bod, sweet bod, oh, sweet bod, sweet bod, sweet bod
Track Name: Eighth Wonder
Extra clever earthbound spirit
Ghost in the form of a mongoose
And I have hands, and I have feet
I'll never die, I am a freak

Hello, I'm here, I'm living in the wall
I know I might be small, but I am a freak

Thou wilt never know what I am
I am the fifth dimension and I will split the atom
And if you see me you're paralyzed
Pillar of salt, you're mummified

Hello, I'm here, I'm living in the wall
I know I might be small, but I am the eighth wonder

And I was born 1852
And I was born in India
And I shall haunt like the buggane
With such weird noise and clanking chains

Hello, I'm here, I'm living in the wall
I know I might be small, but I am a freak

I say "vanished" to underground
Jim, let me go
I watch like Hell
And I have hands, and I have feet
I'll never die, I am a freak

Hello, I'm here, I'm living in the wall
I know I might be small, but I am the eighth wonder

Eighth wonder of the world
You'll never get to see
What in the name of God can I be?
Track Name: Ancient Aliens
My mind's this cave
So dark, no moon, no stars
No sound, just hearts and walls of art

Strange things happen for no reason
That's all I know
My mind's this cave
So dark, no moon, no stars, no stars
No sound, just hearts and walls of art

These creatures I've seen
Some of them edible, some of them mean
That's all I know
I'm not like you
You fly, you burn my eyes, my eyes
You speak in my mind
Your kind all died when you arrived

I saw you making fire
Strange things happen for no reason at all

I can't help you
You're not human, you're not animal
My mind's this cave
So dark, no moon, no stars, no stars
No sound, just hearts and walls of art
And you, you fly
You burn my eyes
You speak in my mind
You seem surprised that I don't hear you
Track Name: Soft Fuzzy Man
Cold and windy
Dark and stormy
Let me float your way
Please don't ignore me
What you girls really need's a soft, fuzzy man
(An ambient man)
A trick of the light to love you tonight
You don't understand, there's nothing quite like a soft, fuzzy man

Can't you see me?
Why can't you see me?
I'm all around, all cold and dreamy
What you girls really need's a soft, fuzzy man
(A wisp of smoke man)
To waft over you and cloud up your view
So show me your hands and wave them right through a soft, fuzzy man

Although I have no arms to hold you in a human passion burns within me
I need to feel like I exist
So please baby please baby step into the mist

Don't be nervous
No, don't be nervous
I'm not like other guys who have a surface
What you girls really need's a soft, fuzzy man
(An atmospheric man)
A shimmering puff of indistinct love
What's better than the vague embrace of a soft, fuzzy man?

Who seeps through your thoughts
Who makes you see spots
Who blows through the air
Who plays with your hair
I know it sounds crazy, but once you go hazy, you'll understand
I'm your soft, fuzzy man
Track Name: As Your Father I Expressly Forbid It
Hey, turn your techno music down
Your grandpa's stopping by tonight
Now, I don't want to hear it
We'll be having macaroni
You will be polite when he's here tonight
Don't talk about the internet
Your grandpa doesn't understand
you will not bring bring your gameboy or whatever to the table
Do you understand?
He doesn't understand

As your father I expressly forbid it
As your father I expressly forbid it
As your father I expressly forbid it
I'm your dad, I'm your dad

What happened to my medicine?
The stuff I take to keep my hair
It's obvious you stole it and you sold it on the street
'Cause you don't even care if I lose my hair
Okay, I found my medicine
I'm sorry that I yelled at you
But let this be a lesson, if you ever steal my medicine
That's what I'll do
I'll yell at you

As your father I expressly forbid it
As your father I expressly forbid it
As your father I expressly forbid it
I'm your dad, I'm your dad

As your father I expressly forbid it, yeah
As your father I expressly forbid it, woah
As your father I expressly forbid it
I'm your dad, yeah yeah yeah
As your father I expressly forbid it
As your father I expressly forbid it
As your father I expressly forbid it
I'm your dad, I'm your dad
Track Name: I Earn My Life
I'll quit my job the day I die
I'll quit my job the day I die
I break my back and never cry
I break my back and never cry
I'm losing all my hair, losing all my hair
I'm losing all my hair because a man provides
I'm standing on a chair, standing on a chair
I'm standing on a chair because I earn my life

I earn my life, I earn my life
I learned it from my father and tell it to my wife
Jesus Christ, don't tell me not to hurry
I wouldn't be so worried if I wasn't always right

While you're asleep I'm terrified
While you're asleep I'm terrified
I see the end before my eyes
I see the end before my eyes
A marker on a grave, marker on a grave
Marker on a grave and I know I'm the one who died
And underneath the name, underneath the name
Underneath my name it says, "He Earned His Life"

I earn my life, I earn my life
I learned it from my father my father never lied
Jesus Christ, better learn how to forage
Utilities and mortgage are all that will survive

I wish my life was on a graph
So I knew how much left I have to earn tonight
It burns too bright
I think about my self a lot 'cause it's the only one I've got
I've earned this life
What have I done to earn this life?

I earn my life, I earn my life
I learned it from my father and tell it to my wife
Jesus Christ, don't tell me not to hurry
I wouldn't be so worried if I wasn't always right
'Cause I earn my life, I earn my life
I learned it from my father and my father never lied
Jesus Christ, we better learn how to forage
Utilities and mortgage are all that will survive
Utilities and mortgage are all that will survive
Track Name: Reaganomics
In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem.
Government is the solution to our problem.

Are you unhappy, girl, in this confusing world?
Where everything you earn is getting left to burn?
If it were up to me, then living would be free
And I can give you that, and I can give you that

They'll take your money into their greasy hands
And spend your money
(They do this to disrespect you)
And take away your land
(I know kung fu, I will save you)

'Cause you're worth saving, baby
Deregulating, baby
I'm Ronald Reagan, baby
I'm Ronald Reagan, yeah

I'll save you, honey, you'll never be alone
I'll save the business
(If you love me, say you love me)
That you will someday own
(They hate freedom, I'll defeat them)

Not like in comics, baby
With economics, baby
With Reaganomics, baby
Atomic bomb it, yeah

Are you unhappy, girl, in this confusing world?
Where everything you earn is getting left to burn?
If it were up to me, then money would be free
And I can give you that, and I can give you that
If you just hold my hand (If you just hold my hand)
If you just close your eyes (If you just close your eyes)
If you get in my car (If you get in my car)
I'll take you for a ride (I'll take you for a ride)

With Reaganomics, baby
With Reaganomics, baby
With Reaganomics, baby, baby, baby, baby, yeah
(With Reaganomics, with Reaganomics, with Reaganomics)
Track Name: Man-Made Object
I want to meet potential architects all night
I want to purchase urban real estate all night
I want to study local zoning laws all night
I want to calculate construction costs all night

I have a vision of a man-made object
I have the money, I have the means
I have the strangest dreams

I caught insomnia from looking at the moon
I found a picture of a rectangle I drew
I am an altogether different man by day
I have the influence to send that man far away

I have a vision of a man-made object (Towering over all)
I have a vision of a man-made object (Towering over all)
I have a vision of a man-made object (Towering over all)
I have a vision of a man-made object (Towering over all)

I have the money, I have the means
I've been having the strangest dreams, baby
Track Name: Spiral of Ants
Over and over
The pheromones, the overwhelming harmony
Consuming the colony
The Circle rules your life

Chop, chop! Don't want to be late
Lift up and carry your weight
You've got no choice but to dance in a spiral of ants
True bugs might laugh in your face
Don't fret, you're leading the race
Don't let the bastards step on your hands in a spiral of ants

You can't remember where you came from (In a spiral of ants)
You can't remember where you're going (In a spiral of ants)
You can't remember knowing
You are one ant
Over, it's over
The pheromones, the self-avoiding odyssey
Consuming the colony
The Circle rules your life

Now, now! Don't run out of breath
Don't feel surrounded by death, no
Take the wheel, this could be your chance, in a spiral of ants
False bugs, you'll soon be alone
See how they drop like a stone
You're free now forever to dance in a spiral of ants

Now you remember where you came from (From a spiral of ants)
Now you remember where you're going (To a spiral of ants)
You've got to keep it flowing
You are one ant
(Over, over, over)
Over and over
The pheromones, the overwhelming harmony
Consuming the colony
Creating its own gravity
Before we knew it we became a hurricane
And the bugs who laughed got blown away
As we proclaimed:
The Circle rules your life
