Track Name: All The Retards Are Gettin' Married
i swear to god that god swears to me
that everything we are is what we can't see
i swear to god that god swears to me
that everything we are is what we can't see

tell me motherfucker do you know who you are?
are you blinded by your mind brown eyed movie star?

all the retards in the world are getting married
they pretend they are in love and that's pretty scary
when really they just can't stop fucking
everybody just can't stop fucking

tell me motherfucker do you know who you are?
are you blinded by your mind brown eyed movie star?

everybody just can't stop fucking everybody
everybody just can't stop fucking, NO!
Track Name: Paint The Town Brown
when i woke up this afternoon
the smell of weed and sex all up in my room
the shiny sunshine was a-shinin' through
i get this feeling in my bones you know what to do

i got zits on my ass and too much hair on my face
my body odor is stinking up the place
but something about me makes you wanna stick around
so let's blow this place and go paint the town brown
Track Name: Hey Sid
hey sid
you ain't a man
you're just a shoulder to cry on

hey sid
you ain't her man
you're just her shoulder to cry on

and with the way you treat your friends
you will be forever alone

hey sid
what's going on
are you surprised you're left alone

hey sid
where did you go
feeling like i never knew you at all

hey sid
deny it all you can
but you're just a shoulder to cry on

and with the way you treat your friends
you will be forever alone

i'm sorry it worked out this way between us
but until you learn respect
this is all you can expect
hey sid
Track Name: Negative Superman
in my head there is a negative superman
in my head, in my head
two worlds collide

and i'm feeling like a clumsy spiderman
in my head, in my head
and i'm tripping on the sidewalk again

used to know what i was trying to say
now my words, all mixed up
looks like i forgot how to think

and my mind is high in the clouds
in the clouds where i belong
my cape is blowing in the wind
Track Name: Piece of Rock
i found a piece of rock today
i swear it looked and smiled at me
i got my rock it's all i need

i took my rock home and showed my mommy
she took it away and planted it next to a tree
ten days later a little girl sprouted where it should be

now i got this little girl on my hands
i went to her and asked if she wanted to dance
she looked at me and in one gulp bit my head off
Track Name: Love Headache
well my brain's a mess and I must confess
you don't act like all the rest
so instead my friend let me start again
and get something off my chest

well we're right back at the beginning again
and I can feel your inhibition slipping way within
and I can't get my mind to comprehend
that my baby's busy fucking another man

i got a love headache
ya ya ya ya

well i think i might sleep for about a week
till my brain starts to bleed, out my ear it leaks
so i drink more beer till the clouds disappear
got my head out the window wonderin' why am i here?

then i pass out on the floor, hear a knock at the door
think my mind is playing a trick
then i open my eyes and to no surprise
guess who, it's you, beggin' for my dick

i got a love headache
ya ya ya ya
Track Name: Sorry Entertainer
where the wind blows, that's where i go
where the moon is, that's where i am
and i when i just have a problem
always hoping the wind'll blow me away again

i'm a loner
i'm a sorry entertainer

drove those demons out of my head
with an organ and a pencil full of lead
and when i'm dead, i'd like to have it said
he drove those demons out of his head

i'm a loner
i'm a sorry entertainer
Track Name: Effervescing Elephant

Track Name: Sleepytime
sleepytime is coming
i'm ready to drift away in a dream
lay my head down, think of pretty things
soon i'll be happy and asleep

it don't matter if i gotta wake up early in the morning
i'll worry 'bout that when i get there
but for now, it's sleepytime

sleepytime for me
sleepytime for me
sleepytime for me!!!
sleepytime for meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!
Track Name: Boredumb
sittin on my ass smoking a bowl of grass
i ain't got shit to do, and you're here chilling too
we watch tv all night and although i feel alright
i'm bored as fuckin shit, i'm a total idiot

i sing songs about nothing and they don't even rhyme
and they don't make any sense so let's play a game of risk
these lyrics don't matter and i'm still bored as shit
let's eat and get fatter, and sit around and bitch c'mon

la la la la la la la la
la la la la la la la la
Track Name: Every Day is a New Day
every day is a new day for me

i step on my front lawn right into a hole
and i step on my front lawn some more

every day is a new day for me

i look out my window, tell you what i see
i see birds, bees, and the trees

every day is a new day for me

i walk down the sidewalk, right on top of you
and i reach down and scrape you off my shoe

every day is a new day for me
every day is a new day for me
Track Name: Awkwardly Awkward
the whispering wind was whispering to me while i pee
it's very, very awkward

yeah it's so damn awkward
so awkwardly awkward

an old man once said to me, when I was 35
you better get to livin' or you better get to dyin'

but i never really paid attention
cause he kind of smelled like shit
but i walked away slowly and i left him a tip

a thousand years ago there was a quest
of which to create an album in 24 hours
a thousand years later it was accomplished

the only thing i've learned in this entire process
the one thing that stuck in my mind
it was one thing, it was only one thing
and it was this, it was this right here:

ALL MY GAY FRIENDS ARE GAY
ALL MY GAY FRIENDS ARE GAY OH YEAHHH
ALL MY GAY FRIENDS ARE GAY
THEY'RE ALL...THEY'RE ALL SUPER GAY
