Track Name: Two year anniversary
You’re making me cringe. You’re making me cry. You’re making me crazy. Together forever, our two year anniversary, baby you’ve got what I need. You’re making me cringe. You’re making me cry. You’re making me crazy. Together forever, our two year anniversary, baby you’ve got what I need.

Let’s prank call all the dicks that we don’t care about. Fuck them all, who needs them anyhow? The so-called friends that would be there until the end. Well, they’re disposable.
Track Name: The pastures of heaven
*Inspired by John Steinbeck’s novel of the same title. Duh.

The pastures of heaven are where you’ll want to go. Let your hair go uncombed, answer no phones. With your money saved you’ll start anew. Or you’ll wind up dead and with this life you’ll be through.

Junius Maltby was a young man from a cultured family, a good education. One evening after his thirty fifth he fainted out there, out there on his steps. When he came to, his breathing was tough. This God-damned city, I’ve had enough. His doctor said to him “Get those lungs out of here. Junius if you stay you won’t live another year.”

The pastures of heaven are where you’ll want to go. Let your hair go uncombed, answer no phones. With your money saved you’ll start anew. Or you’ll wind up dead and with this life you’ll be through.

Go get yourself a little place. Where you can think and breathe at a peaceful pace, away from that city; away from that nervous race. And you can finally make sense out of all the events that make up your existence.

Ten years in that office I’ve thrown out. I’ve grown lazy, I’m happy now I sit about with my feet in the stream doing no work. The afternoon is sunny I think I’ll read a book.

The pastures of heaven are where you’ll want to go. Let your hair go uncombed, answer no phones. With your money saved you’ll start anew. Or you’ll wind up dead and with this life you’ll be through.
Track Name: Off and on (but mostly off)
Pick you up in this pickup truck, you and that Circle K cup and then we’re off into the night.

We’ll take our time coming home. Tonight, we are young. So be calm.

Well, I’m scared to admit that I’m too scared to commit to you and all we could be.

We’re off and on but mostly we’re off. That’s what Raf said in bed.

‘Cus I’m with this girl and that girl and this girl and that girl, even with the girl who walks her dog down my street.

Pick you up in this pickup truck, you and that Polar Pop cup and then we’re off into the night.
Track Name: Hot dog song
There is no one else for me. You’re my only one. You’re my everything. So don’t leave me all alone on this summer night. We’ve got eric and company. To keep us company. Look to the stars. If I ever seem happy.

He’s a hot dog. But he’s my friend. I ran out of words now. Let’s sing “purple bench.” The sun goes down over our hometown. Superior. Meet you at the park. Don’t be late. But you didn’t show. Don’t even call me your friend now. Brought out my guitar to play these songs for you.

If you miss me, I miss you just the same. Probably more than you think you do. If you miss me, I miss you just the same. Probably more than you think you do. That’s just my luck when it comes to girls. That’s just my luck when it comes school. That’s just my luck when it comes to life. That’s just my luck… I don’t give a fuck.

That’s just my friend, he’s a hot dog. Don’t make fun of him. He can’t control it. Look at him he is trying real hard. Trying to be cool. Honestly he’s a pretty good guy. I like him. He gives me rides to the store and back again. To your mom’s house and back again.
Track Name: Michael's song
Behind these glasses a nice guy awaits to take a sweet girl like you on a date. I’ll make you laugh, I’ll make you smile, I’ll hold your hand; I’ll compliment your style. But sometimes I’m timid sometimes I’m shy. Sometimes I want to run and hide and get away from, away from the crowd. Some girls talk way too loud. They say, “Hey Mike we should dance!” I say, “No, girl! Fat chance!” Michael, you’re so shy, such a waste of a handsome guy.

I can’t be this way forever pretty soon I’m gone change, pretty girls think I’m strange, I can’t be this way forever, pretty soon I’m gonna change, pretty girls run away from me. Yeah pretty girls they retreat.

I love education, education is great, ten years at Arizona State! I left without a degree but don’t worry baby, don’t worry about me. I’ve got a little money, I drive a little jeep, I push on the horn, it goes… beep-beep! I’m afraid of rejection don’t you know?

Say no to me and I’ll follow you home… to your house… I’ll wait outside… behind a bush, I’m gonna hide. I’ll peek into window, I’ll sneak a glance. I want to see you in your underpants. I’ll peak into your window, you’ll call the cops, in a jail cell I’m bound to rot.

I can’t be this way forever pretty soon I’m gone change, pretty girls think I’m strange, I can’t be this way forever, pretty soon I’m gonna change, pretty girls run away from me. Yeah pretty girls they retreat.
Track Name: Utah
Our shadows were six feet tall, that summer in Utah. She said, “I’m from St. Paul. There I listen to Blink and I play softball. And sometimes I just sit in my room and do nothing at all, just stare at the walls, do nothing at all, just stare at the walls.”

It was before those towers were set to fall, a boy and a girl in Utah. It was before those towers were set to fall, it was you and me in Utah.

I said, “Yeah, I get bored too because in Mesa, Arizona there isn’t a thing to do.” In front of a white picket fence I gave her a kiss and then I said, “You are summer’s best.” It was before those towers were set to fall, a boy and a girl in Utah.

It was before those towers were set to fall, it was you and me in Utah. So goodnight and sweet dreams. I guess I’ll see you tomorrow, meet you by the tire swing.

It was before those towers were set to fall, a boy and a girl in Utah. It was before those towers were set to fall, it was you and me in Utah.
