Mayday 03:59
Mayday Help is on the way One month rent Half a week pay Ultraviolet light Chloraseptic spray Cover up your face Cancel the parade Mayday Mayday Lilacs in the shade Can't come over Can't go out and play Running out of bread Orange juice and eggs Outta touch with Heather Sarah and Renee Mayday Mayday Moonlight on the bay Wish you were here Wish you could stay Wedding postponed Festival delayed In the middle now but Memories fade Mayday Mayday Put your toys away Embargo in effect on Travel and trade River full of oil Blood and Chardonnay Under doctors orders Don't Resuscitate Mayday Mayday American made On the television is A madman deranged Lies about the lies He told yesterday It's under control Judas was betrayed Mayday Mayday Market full of hay Jump over the fire Do not be afraid Bossman's sick Carpenters pray It's coming for us all Least that's what they say Mayday

Project 18 03:59
You've cut a lot of rug But you move like you're younger Groove like a manticore Shift like the Dryas Fools rush in where Angels fear to tread and Nightshade sleeps in Capillary beds Oooh Let's take it slow Conserve your adrenochrome Project Eighteen I got it figgered out They gotta king me Project Eighteen You got it good enough Had it but you lost it Simmer down sweet sauce Flay the leeks and the anise Fresh out of silphium Even on the deepstate darkweb You've been a part of All my best messes Curves and peaks Protesting your dress Oooh Let's take it slow Conserve your adrenochrome Project Eighteen I got it figgered out They gotta keep me Project Eighteen You got it good enough Had it but you lost it This is the time Of the expanded man This is the time To goooooo Project Eighteen I got it figgered out They gotta king me Project Eighteen You got it good enough Had it but you lost it

Skarlit 03:41
Ariel dyes her hair Erin knows what kind of modeling they do Jasmine, that's not her real name Used to be Jane from Tulsa Skarlit you can wear my flannel Purple and blue look better on you Better on you on me Better you on me Anya's so aggressive, Angelica's no nun Ivy could unlock a safe with her tongue Marina never sinks to the bottom of the pool Lena teach you more that you ever learn in school Skarlit you can wear my flannel Purple and blue look better on you Better on you on me Better you on me On a bus on a boat in an open house On a big brass bed or a leather couch I'll spend some time with you anywhere Skarlit you can wear my flannel Purple and blue look better on you Better on you on me Better you on me

Looking back on when I was caught and confused Feeling lonely and so unclear No more am I used to having so much time Without hearing sweet nothings in my ear Sacrifices made just to look a certain way All those trivial things we've heard Trying to convince ourselves we're finally getting All the good things in life we deserve I gotta change who I was in the past Decisions made assuming that it's all gonna last It used to be my life Now it's just stuff laying round the room It used to be my life Now it's just stuff laying round the room Five guitars, four microphones Six milk crates full of Rolling Stone's Baseball cards, baseball gloves Birthday cards signed with love Hard drives, bowling balls Things that used to hang on walls Concert shirts, dried flowers Enough CDs to tile a shower Stuff that's neat, stuff I made Enough hats for a hat parade Scraps of things I thought I might Make into art, someday I might Time capsules layered, heavy Going back almost to the 70s Boxes, tubs, and vats and bins and I don't even know whats in em Got no idea what I'm gonna do You can keep it, but you can't take it with you It used to be my life Now it's stuff laying round the room It used to be my life Now it's stuff laying round the room I gotta change who I was in the past Decisions made assuming that it's all gonna last It used to be my life Now it's just stuff laying round the room It used to be my life Now it's stuff laying round the room

Bones 06:12
If I'm going down We're all going down If I'm going down We're all going down As it is below Never will above Trickle down sickles In the place of love Fickle frown dicks Picked to run the show As it is above Never will below Finger on the button Finger on the trigger Fat stacks getting bigger Fat sacks getting bigger Y'all yoked to the money Y'all jokes for the money Y'all labor for the money Stab your neighbor for the money Got money in the bank Live off your rent Live off the interest Till it's spent Then they bail em out Then they give em more While you're running up credit At the grocery store Running up bills Defaulting loans Losing health Losing homes Try to come for me At my homestead I'll pick the world up and Drop it on your head If I'm going down We're all going down If I'm going down We're all going down Voice of the people Got a corporate sponsor Classified satellites Flying saucers Hitting the sauce again Whomping on Nausicaans Raising the flop again Stopping for nothing Rubadubdub The invisible hand Got a chubby chub chub In the invisible hand Jobs got three jobs Part time no benefits Bombs for the empire Running up the deficit Hope and change Nope shit won't change Till billionaire hoarders Are drawn and quartered Shopping cart full of guillotines Maybe it's time Free shipping Amazon Prime Jam is fruit Jelly is juice Preserves are syrup Jam is fruit Jelly is juice Preserves are syrup Jam is fruit Jelly is juice Preserves are syrup Jello is Bones Bones for dessert Bones for a treat Bones for a snack If you eat your meat If you eat your meat You can have your bones Sweet gelatin treat If you eat your meat You can toil the field Run the track Carry a man's weight On your back Muscles ache Pours reek But you still must work If you want to eat Till you end up sick Or end up lame Either way The end's the same They'll take your bones When you're dead Green lime Cherry red If I'm going down We're all going down If I'm going down We're all going down

Rowdy Soul 04:52
I'm a rowdy soul I'm a rowdy soul and I don't care whether I work or not I'm a rowdy soul I'm a rowdy soul and I don't care whether I work or not Hallelujah! On the dole I'm a bum A rowdy soul Sleep in late, rock the town Till the whiskey slows me down Pass around the jug my friend I'll tell you a story Bout the things that claw and bite Women mean and whorey I'm a rowdy soul I'm a rowdy soul and I don't care whether I work or not I'm a rowdy soul I'm a rowdy soul and I don't care whether I work or not Spring break Endless summer Permanent vacation Positive vibrations Zero hesitations I ain't plant no corn this year I'm planting roots The sweetest fruits Idle revelations I'm a rowdy soul I'm a rowdy soul and I don't care whether I work or not I'm a rowdy soul I'm a rowdy soul and I don't care whether I work or not I saw the captain's coat Hanging on the wall I took the captain's coat Wore it to the fancy ball Jenny says I like your duds You stud, I'll pay a call Woke up in the captain's coat and Nothing else at all I'm a rowdy soul I'm a rowdy soul and I don't care whether I work or not I'm a rowdy soul I'm a rowdy soul and I don't care whether I work or not

Upstream 05:01
Walking down the street I haven't got any feet Running out to play It's better any day Swimming upstream Looking for the sign To tell me When it's OK To go out my mind In the event of an emergency Pull this tag In the event of consciousness Here's a raft Once upon a time All I wanted to do was play Once upon a time All that I could do was say How I never ever ever thought That we could ever get caught And now I'm turning memories over In my swollen shoulder Oh Swimming upstream Oh Swimming upstream Ohhhhohhhhoh Ohhohhhohhh Swimming upstream So here it is

Long Haul 06:09
I've been crawling Cross the ceiling Real or nothing Not for nothing Like the ocean We keep rolling Like the thunder Floors are rumbling Love you freely Love you purely Real or nothing Not for nothing And all the restless aldermen Hoard sweets and tourmaline And all the courtiers are unafraid Ahwww they're safe now Bunkered down in Alderaan Solar Warden Arcosanti Pledge allegiance Wry and sundry Delta Flyer Going too fast We'll forget this Ever happened Eudaimonics On the upkeep Real or nothing Not for nothing Now I know it's time to know it's time To know what I know I know oh and you know I know a knowed it now it a good time Now there ain't no point in metaphoring Semaphoring You're in my corner We're gonna storm the borders Soar like Horus Sure can't ignore us I'm ready for the long haul Ready for the big one I'm ready for the house I'm ready for adventures I'm ready for the long haul I'm ready For you We're gonna be the ones Who make it Who make it We're gonna be the ones Who make it Who make it
