PRELUDE: Come and let me tell you of a tale as old as time, About life and love and stars above and ninety-nine cent pork rinds. Wounded knees and epiphanies have made me who I am, Without further ado, let me tell you Just how it all began... 7-ELEVEN: I woke up from counting sheep When it came to me in a dream. Said it was my destiny, preconceived and meant to be. So I went to that location, And I filled out an application. Then I met Heather and Mohammed. It feels so good to be wanted. And now, I work at the 7-Eleven. Got hired by this chick named Heather. She's got dreadlocks and a pierced tongue And so life's good at the 7-Eleven Slows down usually after seven. I smoke cigarettes and read a book. And then you walked in the 7-Eleven Birds flew like it was Heaven True love was caught on video tape and I didn't know how much more I could take Because my palms would sweat, my chest would ache Because hearts are made to love and then break, at the 7-Eleven. And I won't pretend to know the answers If you don't pretend to know the score. I'll just pretend that I'm a sailor And you're a siren on the shore. I could be dancing on the ceiling And you could be bouncing off the walls Next to the Chili Cheese Fritos and all of the cheese balls, the cheese balls! Now I work at the 7-Eleven Smoked up with Mohammed and Heather True love was caught on video tape and I didn't know how much more I could take Because my palms would sweat, my chest would ache Because hearts are made to love and then break, But Heather says I'm gettin' me a 401k And then two weeks of vacation pay And then when I take them I'll be going away But then I'll be back on Monday, At the 7-Eleven.

My name is Stan I live with my mom I got a new job Working for Mohammed and Heather. Stan was born inside a van I'm doing what I can Oh baby, you can take me or leave me. My parents named me Stanley But that does not define me My essence cannot be labeled In consonants and syllables. So I say, ba ba ba ba ba.. My name is Stan I live with my mom I took her to the prom Needless to say, it wasn't that great. Stan was born inside a van I've got a master plan But I've only got two dollars on me. My parents named me Stanley But that does not define me My essence cannot be labeled In consonants and syllables. Stan, Stan, Stan, Stan, Stan, Staaaaaan! My name's not Leroy, Elroy, or Steve A rose by any other name still smells as sweet I saw you walking down the candy aisle, I'm gonna love you 'til the end of time. Yeah, yeah, yeah, My name's not Dillon, Dustin, or Tony A rose by any other name still smells as sweet I saw you walking down the candy aisle, I'm gonna love you 'til the end of time. Yeah, yeah, yeah, My name is Stan.

Rush hour moves so fast. The second that the moment's there It's past. At five p.m. the ancient bell tolls And we become slow motion animals. Rush hour moves so fast. You stop and wait and hit the brake Then the gas. At five p.m. the ancient bell tolls And we become slow motion animals. To the gods I pray I don't die a fiery death The scientists can't get us home Without making a mess of it.

Oh, Veronica... You can play the harmonica And if you wanted to We could make out, Veronica. You're like an alligator's sweet tooth Making my lips move With a voice that can soothe Telling you the hard truth Ask her for one smooch Making out in phone booths Under a full moon And she can play The harmonica And smokes marijuana Oh, Veronica... And am I the only that knows Just where her garden grows? And am I the only one that sees Through her eyes and into her galaxies? She's like a schoolboy's first love Naked in the warm sun Hair up in a bun, Like she doesn't care none, Ask her for one smooch Making out in phone booths Under a full moon. And she can play the harmonica And smokes marijuana Oh, Veronica... And am I the only one that sees Through her eyes and into her galaxies?

Oh yeah, inside the morning air If the sun don't care Baby if the sky is there And the clouds don't mind I will take you out Let there be no doubt You need to let your hair down On a side of clouds We go over to a restaurant on the corner The waiter comes over and he asks for the order You order three steaks and you say that before Oh, that you used to have an eating disorder, But it's all okay. I like you anyway. And baby, I want you to stay. And then your hand met mine. The emotions were flying high On the TWA Flight 49 And we didn't speak a word Because we knew what we were going to say. So after it gets dark We'll go to the park Baby, past the city sharks To the meadowlarks We'll sit on the grass And watch the time pass Baby, then I'll grab your ass And then you'll grab mine. Oh we look so happy in the moonlight, Don't you know that you make me feel so right You and I used to be man and wife Possibly, maybe in a past life. But it's all okay. I like you anyway. And baby, I want you to stay. And then your lips met mine. The emotions were flying high On the TWA Flight 49 And we didn't speak a word Because we knew what we were going to say.

Does this ride go any faster, 'Cause it stops dead in the hereafter 'Cause I'm a silly man with science experiments on my mind I got my petrie dish, oh from the Five & Dime, and Go to church and ask your pastor if It's a sin to drown someone in laughter 'Cause I've been drowning you and baby You've been drowning me and Now we can go drown inside our duality, and Listen closely, baby, to what I say I tell you night and day I'll tell you any way that I want to clone you with DNA, A whole new eyes, a whole new lips, a whole new smile, A whole new face... Me and you and you will lay together We'll double our fun and double our pleasure 'Cause two of you is better when there's only one of me And why should I settle for two when I could have three? Listen closely, baby, to what I say I tell you night and day I'll tell you any way that I want to clone you with DNA, A whole new eyes, a whole new lips, a whole new smile, A whole new face... It's not that I don't appreciate you It's just that I want more of yous. I want to fill the room with yous, my love. I can't have just one. Clone you, you know I wanna, clone you You know I wanna Petrie dish! DNA! Deoxyribonucleic acid! Well I've been thinking about it, no doubt about it Don't try to talk me out of it, I've been thinkin'! Well I've been thinking about it, no doubt about it Don't try to talk me out of it, I've been thinkin'! Listen closely, baby, to what I say I tell you night and day I'll tell you any way that I want to clone you with DNA, A whole new eyes, a whole new lips, a whole new smile, A whole new face...

Baby, you know it is such a thrill When I put you under my love spell When it comes to making love, baby girl, don't you know I will And you know I cannot wait until I am... Underneath the sweet love Underneath the sweet... Underneath the sweet love And then later we will retire And our bodies, they will perspire That's when I'm gonna become a vampire! And you know I cannot wait until I am... Underneath the sweet love Underneath the sweet... Underneath the sweet love Baby you know it is such a thrill When you're taking in my love pill When it comes to making love, baby girl, don't you know I will And you know I cannot wait until I am... Underneath the sweet love Underneath the sweet... Underneath the sweet love

These days we don't use paper It's much safer To swipe it at a place and time But then we get the error And feel the terror When it says "declined." And that's what you get when you've got Bad credit in a world of high debt. And that's what you get when you've got Bad credit in a world of high debt. He says that I'm mistaken, I swipe it again, But you know, I have my doubts. And all the while he's staring, And starts swearing Then it weirds me out. And that's what you get when you've got Bad credit in a world of high debt. And that's what you get when you've got Bad credit in a world of high debt. They cut down trees and send bills we don't read, And so they cut down trees and send bills we don't read, (Bad debt) And so they cut down trees and send bills we don't read, And so they cut down trees and send bills we don't read, (Bad debt) And so they cut down trees and send bills we don't read, And so they cut down trees and send bills we don't read, (Bad debt) And so they cut down trees and send bills we don't read, When you've got bad credit and high debt. He knows what that face meant, New form of payment. And it weirds me out. And that's what you get when you've got Bad credit in a world of high debt. And that's what you get when you've got Bad credit in a world of high debt.

Well, I say, Don't you go and pawn your heart of gold. Don't you know I need to breathe you in and never let you go. Are you gonna be there, darling, when the nights turn cold? When I need to breathe you in and never let you go? Don't you know I need to breathe you in Until you're in my skin So deep you're buried in my locker, Accepting all my offers, Drowning in my waters Oh won't you lay down darling as the lights turn low And watch the moon eclipsing the sun in slow-mo Oh I don't have to remind you because you'll always know That I need to breathe you in and never let you go. Don't you know I need to breathe you in Until you're in my skin So deep you're buried in my locker, Accepting all my offers, Drowning in my waters. Oh, don't you go and pawn your heart of gold. Don't you know I need to breathe you in and never let you go.
