Track Name: So Stressed Out
I’m so stressed out, I gotta unwind.
Got so many things going on in my mind.
I gotta eat, I fell on my ass.
I am beat, ‘n my car is outta gas.

I’m so stressed out, I’m really screwed.
I’m so stressed out, I’m coming unglued.
I’m so stressed out, I don’t know what to do.

I gotta be back at work in 5 minutes,
but I’m getting shit from one of the tenants.
I feel like I could blow a gasket
and then they’ll fit me for a casket

I’m so stressed out, I’m really screwed.
I’m so stressed out, I’m coming unglued.
I’m so stressed out, I don’t know what to do.

I need to escape
from this crazy routine.
But I do it all the time
and there ain’t no fire escape from this scene.

I’m so stressed out, I’m really screwed.
I’m so stressed out, I’m coming unglued.
I’m so stressed out, I don’t know what to do.
Track Name: Dark Matter
its within me
its within you
its within them
its within us

chorus:
dark matter is all around
we just can't perceive
its eighty-four percent of all matter
if you believe.

repeat chorus:
repeat verse:
repeat chorus:
Track Name: We're Through
i feel the vibes and they're not good.
i was on the inside, it was understood.
but lately i've sensed a wall between us.
was my offense so egregious?

chorus:
i know you want to get rid of me
although you kid, i can see
its true
we're through.

you've grown tired of me being around.
you pretend to laugh, but i see the frown
its true
we're through.

i just wanted a little respect.
its not too much to ask, the last i checked.
i wasn't making any huge demands,
but i guess i'm no longer in your plans.

repeat chorus

you're in control, that's your game.
any dissent, you want someone to blame.
if your order is threatened someone must pay.
but you'll never be happy if you act that way.

repeat chorus
Track Name: It's All Right
its all right x4
we know who you are
its all right

its all right x4
we know where you been
its all right

its all right x4
we know what you done
its all right

see no evil
hear no evil
speak no evil
and Shizaru will
do no evil

its all right x4
we know why you did it
its all right
Track Name: Bigger Slice Of Pie
its true that the game is rigged
when they compete they lie and cheat
i zagged when i should have zigged
now they want me to grovel at their feet.

chorus:
they always want a bigger slice of pie
they have enough, but want to bleed us dry
they want to kick us 'til they see us cry
they want us to give up and not even try.

the swindlers take bigger cuts
'n say we don't pay our fair share
they say we sit on our butts, or are sluts
they truely do not to care

repeat chorus:

bridge:
they are their own worst enemies
they are ill-prepared for the masses when they
leave their academies

trumpet solo

repeat chorus:
Track Name: More Compassion
i didn't know you were having problems
managing your own affairs
i guess i wasn't paying attention
it isn't that i don't care

chorus:
but i should have thrown you a bone
i could have given you a loan
i may have spoken in a harsh tone
in my initial reaction
i guess i should have known
i could have picked up the phone
i really should have shown
more compassion.

i tried to give advise on your behavior
but it probably came across wrong
i guess you have to experience failure
to toughen you up and make you strong.

repeat chorus:

well, its after the fact
you're down on your luck and in a ditch
but let me help you to climb back up
and help you find out which way is which.

repeat chorus:
Track Name: Come What May
i shouldn't be so surprised
when things go spiraling down
i shouldn't be so angry
when people i love are no longer around

Chorus:
come what may, come what may
its all gonna end some day
come what may, come what may
there's nothing more I can say.

i need to accept the inevitable
that all things must pass
i just didn't think it would happen
so painfully slow, yet so fast

repeat Chorus:

i need to stop wallowing
and get up off my arse
I can't take things so seriously
so what if most of living is a farse.

repeat Chorus:
Track Name: Drunge
he's a drunk and grungy guy
got dirt on his face and bloodshot eyes.
urine-soaked clothes, caked on crap
bloody nose, on a cardboard mat.
he's a drunk and grungy guy

he needs some food, his belly's achin'
he needs some booze, his hands are shakin'.
he's a drunk and grungy guy

he's a drunk and grungy guy
got dirt on his face and bloodshot eyes.
whats the point of taking care
he's lost his teeth, he's lost his hair
he's a drunk and grungy guy

he's lost everything that they haven't already taken.
he may pass out, he may not awaken
he's a drunk and grungy guy
Track Name: Looking Like A Jerk
So, what do you know,
you grew up near Motown
but you have no soul
deep down.

you're a little off key
singing a different tune
you're a stuck up bully
born with a silver spoon

[chorus:]
seems to me
you've had plenty of time
to figure out how
the system should work.
seems to me
you should be in your prime
but instead you come across
looking like a jerk.

you think taking cuts
is a virtue
you run with scissors
at those who never hurt you.

you're a sneaky white collar
hide your fortunes out of site
i bet you ten thousand dollars
that i'm right.

[repeat chorus]

[bridge:]
You've been preparing for this all your life.
since you first started taking cuts in line.
But your lies are hurtful flung from a knife
you have no morals you have no spine

[inst. chorus]

[repeat chorus]
Track Name: In The Catacombs
Every day, coming home after school
I stopped by the convent gate
I whistled the call of the turtle dove
And then I'd stand and wait

Quick as a wink, she'd hustle me in
And we'd share a shandy or two
Next thing you know, we'd dart down the stairs
Where we started to bill and coo

Chorus:
Never again had I so fine a time
No matter wherever I've roamed
As when Mother Superior messed around
With me in the catacombs

Many's the time I've told the tale
Down at the corner pub
To scornful incredulity
From the local drinking club

Well, that's the way I remember it
Cause that's the way it went
To a randy lad of seventeen
That woman was heaven sent

Chorus

Bridge:
She had eyes hard as ball bearings
And a jaw like a steel trap
And I'd jump a yard straight up in the air
When she gave me a playful slap

Chorus
Track Name: Empty Vortex
sometimes i fall down on the ground
and i skin my knee
sometimes i feel gagged and bound
and i want to be free.

i'm going round and round, i fight in vane
against some special effects
going round and round going down a drain
into an empty vortex

sometimes i look up to the sky
and feel the heaven above
sometimes i just want to fly
like a mourning dove.

i'm going round and round, i fight in vane
against some special effects
going round and round going down a drain
into an empty vortex

i don't know what awaits me
but i guess i'll have to wait and see

i'm going round and round, i fight in vane
against some special effects
going round and round going down a drain
into an empty vortex
