Track Name: When My Ship Comes In
I'm gonna turn my car
Into an aquarium
I'm gonna fill it with fish
I'm gonna get a dog
Gonna name him Meatwad
And put food in his dish

When I get my stuff together
When my ship comes in
When I win the lottery
I'm gonna spend it all on you

I'm gonna find your dad
And kick him in the nads
Cause he's a dick to you
I'm gonna find my mom's
Favorite prescriptions
I'm gonna share them all with you

When I get my stuff together
When my ship comes in
When I win the lottery
I'm gonna spend it all on you

I will give you anything
That you could ever want
You are my submissive
And I am your dom

I'm gonna learn "Freebird"
And make up new words
And serenade you with it
I'll get a tattoo
One that matches for you
Of a three-eyed fish

When I get my stuff together
When my ship comes in
When I win the lottery
I'm gonna spend it all on you

Except I'll buy an iPod and
Some new CDs
Maybe something else selfish
But nothing too fancy
I'll still give you anything
That you could ever want
You are my submissive
And I am your dom
Track Name: Bite Size Help
I write songs about the way I feel
But sometimes I don't feel, other times I feel too much
I don't air my dirty laundry
I wear it out in public when I do shows
But now the laundry room needs some work
Tons of contractors, they give me estimates
And that was such a lousy metaphor
But if I told the truth
It'd all be comin' out like
Ba-ba-ba-da-da-da
Ba-ba-da-da-da
Ba-ba-da-da-da
Ba-ba-da-da
Ba-ba-da-da-da
Ba-ba-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da

Saw at least ten therapists last week
Each one gave me a different form to fill out
And when the therapy's done, what can I expect?
Maybe medication
But in the meantime I seclude myself, I distract myself
Otherwise I'm gonna cry all day
And when the therapy's done, and I'm all cried out
I tried to tell ya'
But it all kept comin' out like
Ba-ba-ba-da-da-da
Ba-ba-da-da-da
Ba-ba-da-da-da
Ba-ba-da-da
Ba-ba-da-da-da
Ba-ba-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da

This bite size help keeps me at bay
But it really only teaches me how to act
When they say it's gonna be okay
They're all, "Marc, it's gonna be okay"
It's like givin' a whale a Tic-Tac

I talked to my daughter on the phone
She was visiting grandma, a.k.a. my mom
Said she found a Donald Duck plush doll
That I once loved when I was her age
I cried because what if I passed the torch?
What if Juliana ends up this fucked up?
And partially because I miss that doll
I wanna cry on it's shoulder
And mutter words that sound like
Ba-ba-ba-da-da-da
Ba-ba-da-da-da
Ba-ba-da-da-da
Ba-ba-da-da
Ba-ba-da-da-da
Ba-ba-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da

This bite size help keeps me at bay
But it really only teaches me how to act
When they say it's gonna be okay
They're all, "Marc, it's gonna be okay"
It's like givin' a whale a Tic-Tac
Track Name: 'Til You Come Home To Me
Today you felt out of it
Today I missed you a bit
Well, that's not true, I missed you a lot
You're at work and I'm at home
We rely on the telephone
And I can't wait 'til you come home to me

Last weekend wasn't that much fun
But now the arguing is done
Sometimes couples have to clear the air
The best friend that I've ever had
Is you, kitten, and I'm so glad
That you can't wait 'til you come home to me

I can't wait to kiss you when you walk through that door
I can't wait 'til I don't have to miss you anymore
I can't wait 'til the next time I get to feel your shape
I can't wait 'til you come home to me
Oh-oh-oh
I can't wait 'til you come home to me

Your body is a work of art
How'd you ever get so smart?
I'm luckier than any guy I know
You look great when you first wake up
All the other girls are runners up
And I can't wait 'til you come home to me

I can't wait to kiss you when you walk through the door
I can't wait 'til I don't have to miss you anymore
I can't wait 'til the next time I get to feel your shape
I can't wait 'til you come home to me
Oh-oh-oh
I can't wait 'til you come home to me
Oh-oh-oh
I can't wait 'til you come home to me
Track Name: I Am Going To Fuck Your Life Up
Happy birthday
Let's go get our prescriptions filled
It's a long drive
Please don't forget to take my pills
I will influence you to do things you shouldn't be doin'
This body is the tool that will leave your life in ruins
Thank god you trust me limitlessly

I'll repair you
When my family's not around
My first love's in the ocean
And I wish that he would drown
I'm changing every day to someone you have never seen
Infantile regression all the way to seventeen
Thank god you know how to spy on me

Well, everything was cool
Until Christmas rolled around
We were playin' with telepathy
Until I got found out
Friends called to remind me
That I had to tear you down
So, I worked to earn your faith
Then I stopped comin' around

Just try to reach me
With apologies in vain
Well, I don't settle on much
So I won't settle on a name
I just bought a ring for about nine hundred bucks
I will wish you well and then you're gonna need the luck
Then I'll blame you for the things I've caused

Ha, you fell for it
There's no accounting for taste
All the promises I made
Well, you can watch them float away
Cause there is no connection and there probably never was
I'll become my father and use all my love and trust
Thank god I've got friends to decompose

Well, everything was cool
Until Christmas rolled around
We were playin' with telepathy
Until I got found out
Friends called to remind me
That I had to tear you down
So, I worked to earn your trust
And then I stopped comin' around

I'd repair you
But that's not what I'm about
I'll take what I got from you
Then I'll go spread it around
The first love gets a second dose of third rate punishment
He's comin' back for more but we are so transparent
Thank god I can lie so well

Well, everything was cool
Until Christmas rolled around
We were playin' with telepathy
Until I got found out
Friends called to remind me
That I had to tear you down
So, I worked to earn your trust
And then I stopped comin' around

Everybody!

Well, everything was cool
Until Christmas rolled around
We were playin' with telepathy
Until I got found out
Friends called to remind me
That I had to tear you down
So, I worked to earn your trust
And then I stopped comin' around
So, I worked to earn your trust
And then I stopped comin' around
So, I worked to earn your trust
And then I stopped comin' around
Track Name: This Is Hopeless
This is hopeless
And I have had enough
This is hopeless
And now I'm giving up
Inside I am broken
Like a scrounged up roll of dimes
This is hopeless
Now I'm giving up

This is hopeless
Your teeth aren't in your skull
This is hopeless
Esmeralda's miracle
If you've got a chewed up pen
From the anxiety
This is hopeless
You'd probably agree

I can block the sun out so our wounds heal in the dark
But I know that we need sunlight just to breathe
You spend more time outside reciting poetry
Then deciding anything for yourself

I can block the sun out so our wounds heal in the dark
But I know that we need sunlight just to breathe
You spend more time outside reciting poetry
Then deciding anything for yourself

This is hopeless
You can't make up your heart
This is hopeless
And things have come apart
I like myself enough
To walk away when it feels right
This is hopeless
Another hopeless night
This is hopeless
Another hopeless night
This is hopeless
Another hopeless night
Track Name: God Save The Queen From Navy Seals
Widespread like a plague
Pills that make your belly ache
You'll have to kneel and beg
To keep her here
Spitting out your teeth
'Til the gauze is all bloody
And the Tylenol-3
Is wearing off
We are all machines
Neurotic and naïve
God bless and save the queen
From navy seals
We've got many things to talk about
We've got many things to talk about

Hospital machines
Pumping juices into me
The insurance rates are steep
But it worked out
So now I can drive a car
With Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
His synth-pop lucky star
Is burning out
We are all machines
Neurotic and naïve
God bless and save the queen
From navy seals
We've got many things to talk about
We've got many things to talk about

Water heaters boil
Inside of this mortal coil
When you're sour in the oil
While you're at ease
Apostrophe-R-E
Shortens up "you are" for me
My vocabulary
Is sharp and keen
We are all machines
Neurotic and naïve
God bless and save the queen
From navy seals
We've got many things to talk about
We've got many things to talk about
Track Name: Music Geek
There was this kid that used to beat me up
A pudgy kid, his name was Chuck
Once he had some M&Ms
And I asked if we could share
Instead he pushed me off of my Big Wheel
I skinned my knee and he rode off
And then when I was walking home
A bee stung me on my head
I stopped playin' outside that week
Instead I listened to my Walkman incessantly
And that's the reason I'm a music geek
It never stole a Big Wheel from me

In sixth grade I always dreaded lunch
I could never find a place to sit and munch
There was this kid named Bo
Who once let me sit with him
One day he interrogated me
Found out I had a crush on Tara Weatherby
He told the entire school
When she found out she laughed at me
I stopped tryin' to make friends that week
Instead I listened to my Walkman incessantly
And that's the reason I'm a music geek
It never points and laughs at me

Who needs real friends
When you can obsess over bands?
Who needs human contact
When you can hear what people sing about it?

Now I'm in my mid-twenties
And everybody's got nice stuff but me
I still have social phobias
But I'm workin' to get past them
Maybe if I went out and booked a few more shows
And got a record deal and made some videos
On second thought, I think I'll stay inside
With my girl and sing song for her
Cause she's in love with me
She loves to download mp3s
And she's in love with a music geek
She likes me for me
Track Name: One Hit Wonder
Everyone I know stumbles on a song
And they love their songs, hell I love their songs
Hit after hit and tat for tit
But it seems that I've been gettin' it wrong
Well, some guys are happy to hit and run
But I don't think that'd be much fun
I'd rather turn you into all the records I should have made

I don't ever wanna be your one hit wonder
Honey, would you be my greatest hit?
If I sold this song, I'd be pimpin' ya' out
Be my inspiration, darlin', be my box set

I wrote my first song at the age of 15
And didn't touch that instrument again for a year
But I picked it back up cause I thought I knew how to use it
Hoping my words could nibble her ears
But I couldn't get her to sing along
And I learned that you can't force a song
It's like writing wedding vows for a prostitute

And I don't ever wanna be your one hit wonder
Honey, would you be my greatest hit?
If I sold this song, I'd be pimpin' ya' out
Be my inspiration, darlin', be my box set

I wrote a million tunes like I was practicing
So I could get 'em all right for you
Well, I need you to be my capo
Or could you keep me in tune?
You won't have to do much, just be yourself
And we'll move into the Brill Building
And we'll audition our songs and we'll let the neighbors watch

Cause I don't ever wanna be your one hit wonder
Honey, would you be my greatest hit?
If I sold this song, I'd be pimpin' ya' out
Be my inspiration, darlin'

I don't ever wanna be your one hit wonder
Honey, would you be my greatest hit?
If I sold this song, I'd be pimpin' ya' out
Be my inspiration, darlin', be my box set
Track Name: I Will Keep You
Save all your worries for the times you need them most
Everything is alright now I propose
You need directions from the one you wanna hear them from
Your friends deserted you when things got hard

They just don't like what they don't understand
They rant on LiveJounal and beg for attention
But I will keep you safe from all the scary stuff outside

I bind your wrists together, you won't mind
And that's devotion that's so hard to find
Your friends are out there searchin' for their place in this life
But you know who you are and that's no crime

They just don't like what they don't understand
They rant on LiveJournal and beg for attention
Oh oh, but I will keep you safe from all the scary stuff online

Everything that hurts it will subside
It hurts right now, but it gets easier in time

There's bruises on you but you like pain
And it's hard to come to terms with, it's harder to explain
But you did it and I'm proud of you for coming out
Your true friends, one day, are gonna come back around

They don't like what they don't understand
They rant on LiveJournal and they beg for attention
Oh oh, but I will keep you safe from all the scary stuff outside
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh
Track Name: Stuck With Me
Everybody is selfish but, hey, that's life
Do you wanna come over and spend the night?
My VCR only works half the time
The sound drops out but the picture is fine

I'm so lucky that you love me too
I wanna wash your long-ass hair for you
It's like I'm high but I don't smoke pot
How'd you get so cool?
To think I used to wanna jump

Off, this world is scary as fuck
It's big and it's really mean
Well, I don't like
This world, but it looks like I'm stuck
And I'm glad that you're stuck with me

Had a Charley horse but you rubbed my leg
Let's spend the entire day in bed
You've got curves and I like your shape
There's no way you're descended from apes

I'm so lucky that you're still here
You and me, we oughta disappear
Your eyes sparkle like they're covered in gloss
How'd you get so cool?
To think I used to wanna jump

Off, this world is scary as fuck
It's big and it's really mean
Yeah, I don't like
This world, but it looks like I'm stuck
And I'm glad that you're stuck with me

I wanted to be Pete Townshend
But I'll settle for your boyfriend
Let's not end up jaded
Let's repeat the chorus again

This world is scary as fuck
It's big and it's really mean
Yeah, I don't like
This world, but it looks like I'm stuck
And I'm glad that you're stuck with

This world is scary as fuck
It's big and it's really mean
Yeah, I don't like
This world, but it looks like I'm stuck
And I'm glad that you're stuck with me
I'm glad that you're stuck with me
Track Name: Amy, It's Kevin
So, how'd we get this far apart?
It's only three miles via car
Yet we only talk through voicemail nowadays
But you're screenin' all your calls
And we used to shake the walls
And I miss you at Orlando Magic games

Now you're sleepin' with the door guy

Now let's get it straight
You know I never threw you out
Our kitties say, "Meow"
And why won't you pick up the telephone?
You're not getting these rings back
I had problems with my dad
But I'm getting better with a therapist

While you're sleepin' with the door guy
And some crater face named Duffy stole your heart
But I got a job at Q96
And I'll be beating strippers off with a stick

Yeah
Mmhm
Oh-ho oh-ho

So, now I call you twice a day
Sometimes to just say, "Hey"
I bought you pills at the Orlando Magic games
The cats and I miss you
And when your strippin' days are through
You'll wake up to the truth

But for now just sleep with the door guy
You know, that crater face name Duffy that stole your heart
Cause I got a job at Q96
Soon I'll be be beating strippers off or vice versa

Ah-ha!
And this is the last time I call you
Wait, did she just pick up?
I better call back and check...
