Track Name: Prelude / 7-Eleven
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.
Track Name: Stan
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.
Track Name: Rush Hour
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.
Track Name: Veronica
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?
Track Name: The Date
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.
Track Name: Clone U
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...
Track Name: Underneath the Sweet Love
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
Track Name: Bad Credit
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.
Track Name: Breathe You In
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.
