Thanx! to: Joe, for literally everything; Caleb, for lending us his organ; Paige, for her print work and artistry; anyone who has booked us in the last year; Wendy's, for killing us slowly while fueling our riffs; and, most importantly, the 90s. We miss you.

Track Name: A Game Of World Domination Being Played By Two Guys Who Can Barely Run Their Own Lives
Everything that we do is a Risk
Track Name: Just The Trees, Johnny
Los Angeles, why do people love you?
You're a pox with nothing to contribute
You're only earthquakes and wildfires
You offer nothing that I desire

The sunset strip will not be missed, go float off into the sea
Your laid back style leaves no one beguiled, we don't need your celebrities
You suck the souls from your own folks, devouring their dreams
I was in you for a day and I can safely say that you are hell me
Track Name: Fat Man's Errand
I'm going to the store today to get some things
And if you've seen my gut, you know what I mean
I'm buying ice cream
I'm buying candy

I'll go the 7-11 right across the street
To get an Arnold Palmer whenever I'm thirsty
I'm buying pizza
I'm buying soda

I'm going on a fat man's errand
One look in my cart, and it's apparent
This won't get me through the week, but hopefully through the night
I can't wait to go home and take my first bite

I'll go and spend fifty bucks on the dollar menu
Then I'll go and get dessert from somewhere else too
I'm buying cookies
I'm buying brownies

I'm going on a fat man's errand
One look in my cart, and it's apparent
This won't get me through the week, but hopefully through the night
I can't wait to go home and take my first bite

I'm so much fatter than I was last night
I can tell that something's not right
Oh no, here comes the indegestion
I can't believe I did this to myself again
Track Name: Serious Delirium
I tried so desperately
To finish my pot of coffee,
But I didn't think of the consequences.

The last cup sat all day,
Too guilty to throw it away.
Now I'll heat it in the microwave after dinner.

Not used to the caffeine
So long after the morning.
My heat beat is quickening,
Now it's after midnight.

Sleep would have been nice, but I've got to pay the price
For my desire not to waste this excess coffee made in haste.
I guess I'll just lay awake now and nap tomorrow.
Track Name: Botsaw Is REEEAAADDDYYY
Why use our hands to fight, when we can use them to build?
All our childhood dreams will be fulfilled by
Battle, Battlebots.
There's only one way to settle our dispute, as you know,
To build robots to fight on the TV show.
Battle, Battlebots.

You think you got me beat, but you don't.
Come near and I'll reveal my secret catapult.
I've got Hatori Hanzo swords for arms.
The mutilation won't end until the final alarm.

Launch an acidic nuke, infest your house with mold.
Send the IRS after you, infect you with the common cold.
Battle, Battlebots
My robot will breath fire, melt yours down to tin,
I'll flip you the bird after I win.
Battle, Battlebots.
Track Name: Gothic Whatever
Oh, Lydia Deetz,
Those things you saw weren't people
Underneath the sheets.
The paranormal is real,
And I know just how you feel.
My life is a dark room, too,
And no one understands,
Except for you.

Oh Lydia,
Oh Wednesday,
One day you will see, life can have beauty
But if you don't believe, continue to grieve
I can't stop you.

Oh, Wednesday Addams,
You wait for the day every girl becomes
.....Homocidal
And ask if God is real.
Electrocute your bother
Listen to him squeal.
But I think you already know,
So be careful where you aim that crossbow
Track Name: Self-Deprecation Is My Most Sincere Form Of Flattery
Self-deprecation is my most sincere form of flattery.
I will dismiss every instance of cool things that happened to me.

Some people like it, I guess, but it's own no consequence.
Their words won't make me believe.
Track Name: Temporal Causality Loop
Do you ever get the feeling
That you have been repeating
The same day over and over...?
