Track Name: Nibbles And I Know It (Explicit)
When I hop on by, gerbils be lookin' like damn, he high.
I chew to the beat, hoppin' through my cage with my rabbit feet, yeah.
This is how I jump
Four to ten kits a year, hump hump.
It's Nibbles with the big ass...

This is what I see
Mr. Nibbles is staring at me.
He's got a carrot in his mouth
And he ain't afraid to chew it.

I'm Nibbles and I know it

Yo. when I'm at the mall, I'm eatin' a carrot.
And when I'm at the beach, I'm eatin' a carrot.
This is how I roll, eatin' carrots outta control.
We headed to the bar, baby don't get nervous.
No shoes, no shirt, and I still get carrots.

Track Name: Spacesaurus Rex (Explicit)
Every morning when I wake up
I ride my dinosaur to the moon with Jesus.
With Jesus.

You may not believe me, but I swear it's true
Ask my dinosaur pals or Jesus too.

My dinosaur's hoof got caught in a crater
No problem, Jesus blows up the moon.

We steal a spaceship from the Russians
And we're running out of oxygen.
My dinosaur only goes to
Sinclair gas stations (copyright copyright copyright)

You may not believe me, but I swear it's true
Ask my dinosaur pals or Jesus too.

Well, I go to the gulag for that one
Oh well.
But here comes my dinosaur friend
With Jesus as his copilot in a Ford Suburban.

Bursts through the walls of this space prison.

Dinosaur bitches bumpin' in the back seat
Dinosaur bitches bumpin' in the front seat
Dinosaur bitches bumpin' in the back seat
Dinosaur bitches.
Track Name: Flying
Black night
Stars above the power lines
You and I
And the sky.

Dark Day
Puddles mirroring the murky grey
Of your eyes
And the sky.

But now we're flying.
Oh yes, we're flying.

I remember hills that were mountains long ago
Soft feet on the carpet of pine.
I remember dancing in the dawn.
I remember crying in the night

Black Night

You and I, and the sky.

But now we're flying.

Oh yes, we're flying

Tonight, we are.
Track Name: Lava
When the ground came up to meet her
She was seventeen years old.
With eyes blue like an ocean.
And hair, a shade of gold.
She stole off with a camera.
She took her mother's car.
And blasted down the interstate
Above the black hot tar.

Oh, her parents wept.
Stay here a little longer,
Just stay a little longer.
Oh, the day she left
Was the day her life began.

Friday night, the desert air
Brushing back her long blond hair.
The twirling constellations left
And emptiness, despair in her heart.
She could not outpace.
Stay here a little longer,
Please stay a little longer.
Staring into space
Life's meaning lost its weight.

Postcards and photographs.
Flowers pressed between the pages.
Never led the parents any
Closer to their one and only.
'Til the paper clipping
of some small town front page tragedy.
Told the story of a restless,
Frightened teenage girl, lonely.

Oh, her parents wept.
Stay here a little longer,
Please stay a little longer.
Oh, the day she left
Was the day her life began.
Track Name: Bear Kub
Hello, and welcome to Bear Kub.
Say hi to the rest of your life!
Please join the Bear Kub Klub.
So you have something to talk about in the afterlife.

You had better be afraid
You can't run 'cause we are everywhere.
We ride bikes with wheels that are saw blades.
And if you try to ride them, we'll kill you with our polar bears.

Hello, and welcome to Bear Kub.
Say hi to the rest of your life!
Please join the Bear Kub Klub.
So you have something to talk about in the afterlife.
Track Name: Dr. Peppermint Leads The Parade
Oh, it the place to be
Bring your whole family.
In fact, just bring anyone
It's for the community, so watch the insanity
Look, we're about to have fun!

When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.

He's got a Ph.D.
He'll have you on one knee.
That's what the townspeople said.
They show their loyalty
As he plays their melody
Look how he marches ahead!

When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.

Everything goes chaotic.
Everyone has lost it, and all we can do is scream why.
One good man stumbles as the whole city crumbles.
Screams, "Help us, we're all about to die!"

When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
Track Name: Short Bus Empire
You thought you got the best of us
We're back, we're better, hop on the bus
We'll take you where you've never dreamed
Our short bus empire reigns supreme.

We ride throughout the streets and towns
The movement will be well renowned
By the time our empire hits the sea
You'll follow the short bus regime

And the movement won't be televised

They told me I had lost my mind
Join the short bus.
They told of peace that I could find
Join the short bus.

The prospect fields of golden dreams
And endless possabilities.
Through introspective subsidies
We sew up people's frayed seams.

And so we lay our simple plea
On generous ears, with the levity
Of music, a message clear as day
Join us now, or next time pay!

The short bus is the place to be
For ever present harmonies.
By the time our empire hits the sea
You'll follow the short bus regime!
Track Name: A New American Dream (17h43)
I reward myself with music.
Every time I do a good deed,
You'll just come back to haunt me.

Haunted streets and broken homes.
Happy sitcoms, ripped up tomes.
And rubble in the streets.

American as Snapple pie.
Work a bit until you die, yeah.

American as Snapple pie.
And rubble in the streets.
You'll just come back to haunt me.
American as Snapple pie.
And rubble in the streets.
Track Name: Duffylujah
Well, I've heard there was a secret chord.
That Ms. Toogood played and it pleased Ms. Braun
But you don't really care for choir, do ya?
And it goes like this, the 4th, the 5th.
The minor fall and the major lift.
Ms. Braun composing Duffylujah.
Duffylujah, Duffylujah, Duffylujah.

Your math was strong but you hated proofs.
You saw Ms. Green on the roof.
...awkward.
She tied you to the lunchroom chair.
She made Chad Winters teach you DARE.
And from your lips she drew the Duffylujah.
Duffylujah, Duffylujah, Duffylujah.

Well, Duffy here has seen it all.
He knows these rooms and he's walked this hall.
He used to be a god before he knew ya.
He's seen the blue ribbon on the marble arch.
Graduation is not a victory march.
It's a cold and it's a broken Duffylujah.
Duffylujah, Duffylujah, Duffylujah.

And there was a time when he could know.
All that went on down below.
This mortal life never really moved ya.
Well sure, he's a little round.
But the hair atop his graying crown.
Is soft as the whispered Duffylujah.
Duffylujah, Duffylujah, Duffylujah.

Sometimes classrooms can get stuffy.
But all I ever learned from Duffy
Is how to keep the school cold to save moolah.
And it's not a cry you hear from us.
Christ's sakes, it's colder on the bus.
It's a cold and it's a broken Duffylujah
Duffylujah, Duffylujah, Duffylujah.
Duffylujah
Duffylujah
Duffylujah.
Track Name: Terminal B
Here comes another dream.
Mistaken for a chance to sleep.
You say you won't be long.
I fall asleep here, in Terminal B.

A thousand ships move souls around me.
But none shine as bright as you.
I think I'll dream until you make your move.
Until you make your move.

An Adriatic ocean flight.
Or quiet desert sands at night.
All your pretenses don't keep me up.
'Cause I await here, in Terminal B.

A thousand ships move souls around me.
But none shine as bright as you.
I think I'll dream until you make your move.

All the memories inside this place.
The last glimpse of a loved one's face.
And I trust you more than I think you'd believe.
It won't be long now, in Terminal B.

A thousand ships move souls around me.
But I love none like I love you.
I think I'll dream until you make your move.

Maybe I'm in love with the thought of being in love with the thought of being in love with you.
Track Name: A Peppermint Parade Of One
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade, everybody follows him away.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.

When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade, everybody follows him away.
When Dr. Peppermint leads the parade.
Track Name: Going Away
I'm going away 'cause there's no more time left where I am.
I'm going away, left my future behind to be damned.
I'm going today, 'cause to-do lists will never be done.
I'm going away, 'cause it seems the best songs have been sung.
Already been sung.

Alone.
I'm always alone.
Well thanks for the thought, but I never thought to much of home.

So, I'm going away 'cause there's no more time left where I am.
Going away, left my future behind to be damned.
I'm going today, 'cause to-do lists will never be done.
I'm going away, 'cause it seems the best songs have been sung.
Already been sung.

And I'm tired of waiting for checks in the mail
I will raze my own path
I will blaze my own trail.
And if you wanted to come along then you could.
But our two paths diverged in a yellow wood
A long time ago.
A long time ago.
I think that I'm smarter the less that I know.
And now...

I'm going away 'cause there's no more time left where I am.
Going away, left my future behind to be damned.
I'm going away, 'cause to-do lists will never be done.
I'm going away, 'cause it seems the best songs have been sung.
Already been sung.
By you, and you, and you, and you.
So, I'm going away 'cause there's no more time left where I am.
Going away, left my future behind to be damned.
I'm going today, 'cause to-do lists will never be done.
I'm going away, 'cause it seems the best songs have been sung.
