Track Name: No Secrets Allowed
You know that deep beneath the city
There's a girl, she is so pretty
And she cares so much about you
She cannot take her eyes off you
You go down and tell her...
Oh she looks stellar
Do not concern yourself with quandaries
Everybody melts

And any time you sleep she's watching
And any time you breathe she listens
Quite intently to your airflow
To ensure it's not too shallow
'Cos you have no right to die
Or live a very nuanced life
So up your skirt and down your blouse
Ten thousand cameras in your house

Don't look at it
Don't look
Let go
You are safe
They will tell all
Take your time
Please
Go

Go
Now
Get in
Go
Let Go
You're dead
You're done
Track Name: Houseboat
Buy a houseboat
I hear they're quite a good investment
I do
I do
Track Name: It's Broken
Oh what a beautiful Saturday morning
I think I might go for a ride
Lemonade's good on a Saturday morning
When everyone's playing outside
Please be good to me
Please be good to me
Make the sun please shine all day long
I want to have bundles of fun

It's broken
Oh not again
I fixed it last week—yet again—now it's broken
It's broken
Oh fuck it all to hell
I'm tired
Why me?
Why me?
Why?
Why?

How to dismantle your microwave oven
Without causing damage and pain
Gently remove the four screws on the bottom
And take out the rotating plate
Please be good to me
Please be good to me
Put the working magnetron in
And make sure that it's not still plugged in

It's broken
Oh not again
I fixed it last week—yet again—now it's broken
It's broken
Oh fuck it all to hell
I'm tired
Why me?
Why me?
Why?
Why?

Dismantle your microwave oven
Dismantle your microwave oven
...wave oven
...wave oven
...wave oven
...wave oven
...wave oven
...wave oven

Murder me
Murder me
Murder me
Murder me
Murder me
Murder me
Murder me
Murder me
Murder me
Ah

-- Guitar solo --

Please shoot me
Please shoot me
Please shoot me
Please shoot me dead

I fixed it
I swallowed a pill
I swallowed a pill and that fixed it
I fixed it
I fixed it
And all I had to do was swallow one pill
One pill showed me how to fix my life
Track Name: You're The Only One
All I want to do is be alone with you
And smother you with love until you smile again
I miss the woman that I fell in love with
She has never been the same since that one fateful day
I'm so inadequate, I can't repair her
And often I just think I make things worse
Maybe I should leave, it would be better for her
But I know I can't, I am too selfish
Do you truly love someone if you can't hurt yourself for them?
What do I do? I don't know how to act
Sometimes I just wish I'd never met you
Because knowing what I'll miss I don't know how I can go on

You're the only one who makes any sense to me
Time does not exist when you're alone with me
You make my world go round
No, please, just answer
I just want to work things out
Track Name: And Life Goes On...
Sunday morning at seven o'clock
Sun is rising, dew is dripping, street is covered in fog
Orange colors dance around me like the pigs on the moon
And at this rate, I will soon be up there dancing 'round too
Through the mist and through the fog I will ascend up above
And feel the wind run through my hair as I reach out for god
And down below I'll see my troubles spread out down on the lawn
And look upon them, laugh, and wonder why I worried at all
My skin is drenched, but my soul isn't whet
I have caused so many problems that I've come to regret
And I spent my whole life running, never turned to look back
But now I've had to face them, and I've come to realize that...

That life goes on
And life goes on
And on
And on
And on
And on
And...
And life goes on

I've spent my whole life thinking
What should I say?
What do I say to all these people that won't make them run away?
But now I think that maybe being lonely isn't so bad
So praise god, it's time to realize that...

I live for myself
Fuck everyone else
I live for myself
Fuck everyone else
I live for myself
Fuck everyone else
