Track Name: Clearance On Oxygen
Shoes, shirts, my bag and keys

Set outside again to try and freeze. Get me out of this town submerged underwater. The air is freezing or hotter. This snow globe of leaves is a place that I can breathe. Round and round it goes, where that is nobody knows, nobody chooses to stare. A sight so rare. My words have sunk down, they're coming back around. I never poisoned my thoughts with alcohol for a cause. The death of my first friend, forever broken. The laughter of all these fucking friends. Has tampered with my judgement. In a state of happiness, pretend is fun. At least, I don't drink, or I'd never see the sun. My mind is dry. Of bread with drugs but I know to have fun. Like the drummer boy from Delaware, when he left us. He knew, who he was, so he cut his hair. Free from the status book. He walks among us, unlike a rook. I'll know who I am by tomorrow night, after I will lie to you saying that it is alright.
Track Name: The Chelsea
(Reach for the sky!)

She's the only woman I ever need
She's the only woman I ever see

She's the only woman I ever need
She's the only woman I ever see

She makes smile, stay for awhile
Tonight she'll be baby

I went down to The Chelsea
On a summer's day

I went down to The Chelsea
On a summer's day

I couldn't find my baby that night
So I went on a murdering rampage

First I shot the governor
Then I killed his wife

Next I stabbed the butler
With his sharpened knife

I couldn't find my baby that night
So I went on a murdering rampage

She's the only woman I ever loved
But now she's a hangin' with the stars above

She's the only woman I ever loved
But now she's a hangin' with the stars above

I couldn't smile and I cried for awhile
The night I lost my baby
Track Name: Viva La Impersonation
Marty, we have to go back. There's something about today, that we seem to lack. The courtesy of others has been outnumbered by those with the ignorance that refute their arrogance, I've heard their stories before, and each one is a bore, creativity standard, finally surrendered. Today I left the room, over the infinite replay of someones story of success 'cause I don't want to hear the broken record of the audience saying who told it best. Farewell, to identity, one day you may hear me speak, but it won't be from me. What I thought was my best now, belongs to the rest now. Well I haven't made it to my prime, but I'm dragged into this fucking crime. I've almost nothing left to say before it was taken away. This era is simply outdated, but the fad remains the same when everyone compensates their identity, it's always such a shame. I'm not much for pretend, but I love to daydream. To be my own that I want to be, that's what I mean. Chorus again. And yelling. Marty we have to go back.
Track Name: Whiskey In The Valley
I remember all the times we shared
Walking through the mall down there
The moon climbs and you shine the brightest tonight

I can't imagine what you'd say
If we had just met yesterday
But months fly by with you in my life

Mamma lay down beside me
Outside by the oak tree
And you can say you love me
Stay with and watch the bees

And birds they flyin' through the sky
Oh why oh why can't I take you with me
To the land with Whiskey In The Valley

I remember walking through the fields
I'd dance in pubs to jigs and reels
the sun's up and you jump
The Murder Of Crows

Are gigging in O'Donoghue's
You'll belt the words and drink the booze
Just take my hand and I'll show you the land

Mamma lay down beside me
Outside by the oak tree
And you can say you love me
Stay with and watch the bees

And birds they flyin' through the sky
Oh why oh why can't I take you with me
To the land with Whiskey In The Valley

Tell me ma when I go home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
They pull my hair, and stole my comb
But that's all right till I go home
She is handsome, she is pretty
She is the belle of Dublin city
She is a-courting one two three
Please, would you tell me who is she
Albert Mooney says he loves her
All the boys are fighting for
Knock on the door and ring a bell
Sayin' oh my true love, are you well
Out she comes as white as snow
With rings on her fingers, bells on her toes
Old Jenny Murray says she will die
If she doesn't get the fella with the roving eye

Mamma lay down beside me
Outside by the oak tree
And you can say you love me
Stay with and watch the bees

And birds they flyin' through the sky
Oh why oh why can't I take you with me
To the land with Whiskey In The Valley
Track Name: Wall Of Mercury
The voices in my head
Told me the pieces fit
I was petrified, amazed
My eyes caught in a glaze
My ears saw the truth
From where I would sit
I know of the things I heard
A call and response, of two worlds

The crack in the ice is just a ripple in a pond
Goodbye says the flowers trying to move me along
See you soon said a see-through smile up in a tree
Hey you, says the wisest man telling me to leave

From this standpoint I can see both sides of the mental wall
I turned up the sound of one side
Enlarged the others size
There a hole had been made
Leading to a fall
Curiosity kills the cat, but it smiled
And it waved back

A 6/8 time to let nature run it's course
Better run like hell, this stop watch knows no remorse

A door of a world
Who asks a girl "why?"
Leave the child alone
She's curious and she will cry

My trial has ended, I'm found guilty
My trial has ended, I"m found guilty
Well I'm mad as a hatter
There's not much of a latter
I'll tear down both walls
Wonderland be free
Track Name: Arm Joe
Lemme here you sing
Na an na na na na na na na na na
Arm Joe na na na na na na na na na na

Arm Joe broke a window.
Arm Joe broke a nose.
He dosent know his own strength.
Don't you get too close.

Arm Joe broke a window.
But he'll never break my heart.
I always knew he'd come for me.
Right from the start.

Lemme here you sing
Na an na na na na na na na na na
Arm Joe na na na na na na na na na na

I once knew Nick Romero.
A young and jovial chap.
He liked to smoke and dance and play piano on my lap.

He was young and powerful.
But he lacked common sense.
And one night he peed on a church.
Now he has to repent.

Lemme here you sing
Na an na na na na na na na na na
Romero na na na na na na na na na na

Arm Joe knows a Mexican
And he goes by James.
He can make a mean chalupa
And wins in baseball games.

And these three fine gentlemen
Belong to a frat.
I can see you jocking EAMi
Yeah their parties are rad!

Arm Joe don't go away now.
People need you in their life.
We all love your goodbyes
And hellos.

We can't conceive a world where
Arm Joe doesn't shower
Reaching his hands up to the heavens
Above us!

Lemme here you sing
Na an na na na na na na na na na
Arm Joe na na na na na na na na na na

Adam loves his MGK
Drinking day by day.
He can put on for his city
While swinging life away.

There's a man that oversees his young and he goes by Tom.
I've already detailed his exploits
In another song.

Lemme here you sing
Na an na na na na na na na na na
RA Tom na na na na na na na na na na

Life will always be a drag
When you don't have friends.
Someday we'll escape this town
And start setting the trends.

But for now all I know is that
Arm Joe is the best.
He's smart and strong now sing along while my band does the rest!

Arm Joe don't go away now.
People need you in their lives.
We all love your goodbyes
And hellos.

We can't conceive a world where
Arm Joe doesn't shower
Reaching his hands up to the heavens
Above us!

One, two, three, four, five, six
Arm Joe hits like Mr. Jiggs
Luke’s a moonin’ in the kitchen
Julianne won’t quit her bitching.

Seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven
Joseph’s arms are his main weapons.
Punching through the ten inch glass
He’s been getting all the sass so

Arm Joe don't go away now.
People need you in their lives.
We all love your goodbyes
And hellos.

We can't conceive a world where
Arm Joe doesn't shower
Reaching his hands up to the heavens
Above us!

Lemme here you sing
Na an na na na na na na na na na
Arm Joe na na na na na na na na na na
Arm Joe na na na na na na na na na na

Track Name: XdeuX
Next step closer
Not giving a care
Two decades of wisdom
Not needed to share

A personal monopoly
On everybody's doorstep
But ruling with
The same kind of intent

Je m'appelle monsieur realist
I'm glad not to be so triste
Fuck the idea of a marriage
To have a baby in a carriage
Not religious or an Atheist
Don't give me a status

Well ecstasy
On the blank concrete
Once again
Time to repeat

Depressing
Can't cope with depression
But I can't blame that
On personal questions

Je m'appelle monsieur realist
I'm glad not to be so triste
Economically deprived
I'm just glad to be alive
C'est la vie, but not for me
Two decades gone for this one song
Track Name: The Camp
Marissa's kind of a slut
But Alexa's a useless fuck
They said my friends were men of insult
I hope they're fucked like they fucked us

Kenny was the nice guy everybody thought so highly of
He took the steps and did it right
And all of those that learned to fight are acting tough

In five years time everything got so shitty
I hope they miss me (when I'm gone)
I'm never coming back
Hope there's a heart attack
Had by the owner of the park from all the years he spent at The Camp
Track Name: 19 As Rudolph Reed
Seconds 'til I collide
My eyelids up above my eyes
The crowd's still dancing
Overpowering troubled sighs

So give it to me
Mr. Apothecary
Just let me live
Just feeling bliss
I literally mean it
I'm done after this

And we're given another chance to stand up sit down, I'd rather dance
Not long until I fuck up, but I'm not the kind to give it all up

Stuck in an eternal eclipse
The shadow of a cocky priss
I wasn't there to really care the crowd says it wasn't fair

You can leave me
Mr. Apothecary
I said one time only
Go away please

Bring me back 20 years
A chance to rid my parents tears

And we're given another chance to stand up sit down, I'd rather dance
Not long until I fuck up, but I'm not the kind to give it all up

No more regrets
Or sad friends
That's how, you'd want it to be
I'm doing fine, you hear that chime
That's my cue to leave

Nobody's hurt, no ones desert
Just these blotching blood stains on my shirt

Laughing away is how you'll remember me
This knife to gun fight for me
That was never meant to be
Track Name: Tangent
Oh Theresa!
You really know how to show a guy a good time.
She's a man's computation pro.

You're one of the biggest fish in the sea. I'd really like to move ya'.
When everyone is staring at Pythagorean's theorem, I see you
In my dreams. All my dreams. Yeah they fly away. They take me to the place where love is here to stay.
And did I mention? Baby did I mention? I cannot pass your subject today?

Cuz' you will be cosine and I will be secant. Sitting everyday in class right next to Brandon.
I swear the kid produces a sudden reaction when he heard I could date his girl for half of the fraction.
But I wanna lay tangent to your luscious curves.

Ooh!
Ah!
Ha!

Oh Theresa!
You really know how to show a guy a good time.
She's a man's computation pro.

And maybe baby you're inclined to take me away. I'll ride you like a magic carpet as I play.
And we'll fly to the land of Tralfamadore. We'll save an alien Republicans abhor.
Because he works for less than half a dollar minimum wage, it doesn't mean the country grants the boy the right to stay.
And did I mention? Baby did I mention? I cannot pass your subject today?

Cuz' you will be cosine and I will be secant. Sitting everyday in class right next to Brandon.
He can't read the Shakespeare. I can't do the work here.
But I don't wanna have to hear his fucking voice this year.
I wanna lay tangent to your luscious curves.

Ooh!
Ah!
Ha!

I’m going Friday night.
We’re gonna do it right.
I wanna party down
With every kid in town.

I think a gal like you
Should know what to do
When the beer bong’s passing around.

I’m going Friday night.
We’re gonna do it right.

When the beer bong’s passing around.

You really know how to show a guy a good time.
She's a man's computation pro.
Oh yeah.
Track Name: Ron, Ronn N Ronald
One is sad, the other's dumb
The last, filled with malice
All the scams, all the quarters they've stolen
For a jaw breaking kiss

Ron was last seen with Joey
And his pretend friend Bud 420
Acting like they're catatonic
With a dose that's just so chronic

Double N came from the library
With dominatrix study buddy
But biker Kenneth ran over him
With split personality he's feeling grim

Ronald was strapped of cash
And he wasn't one to ask
He grabbed his favorite loaded glock
Took a trip down the block
To the old neighbor farm

Using his tools blasting charm
He started firing his gun, which upset farmer Ralph
He hit him with a shovel
He hit him on the scalp

What a catastrophe in the cul-de-sac
The seasons over, aren't you glad?
That was all folks, for Ron, Ronn 'N' Ronald
Track Name: Chutes! Not Ladders
(Instrumental)
