Track Name: Circus Freaks
Now everybody gather round one and all for a show that you're gonna forget by lunch. But that's ok you'll sit there and you'll listen and you'll enjoy and you'll have cake and ice cream and you'll buy things. Make sure you spend money, that's what we need: your money. Yes!
Want to see a stupid trick you prick, we have fun and games for you to do. Just buy a thousand tickets then watch us eat poo.
Hey mommy look at that carney. What a freak and a geek. And I keep it I want one. Can I at least poke it with a stick?
Here we go in act two for you as we shove more shit down your throats. But you'll take it anyway cuz all you do is consume.
Hey mommy look at that carney. What a freak and a geek. And I keep it I want one. Can I at least poke it with a stick?

I'm glad you asked, in this room we have: Annabelle's paintings, sound equipment, we have computers, we have me pretending to be a vocalist, we have ava sitting in the corner, Annabelle sadly isn't here… WHERE IS SHE?!?! AH! Everybody gather round.
Hey mommy look at that carney. What a freak and a geek. And I keep it I want one. Can I at least poke it with a stick.
Track Name: Apocryphal
I don't want to act casual or be formal or even know what is normal I don't want to.
I'd rather be a great big lump in a great big dump and just lean against a great big stump I'd rather.
This all makes sense to me do you agree? It really fills me up with glee.
If you want to run to the end and stay out of trends then you will be my friend if you want to.
I wish I could say what's on my brain but if I did you'd deem me way too insane
. I don't want to lose my train of thought though so I'll just say ok and let it go. I know just what to say on an ordinary day but it all sounds cliché I know.
I know just how to be when you talk to me but inside I'm crazy.
I wish I could say what's on my brain but if I did you'd deem me way too insane.
I don't want to lose my train of thought though so I'll just say ok and let it go.
Track Name: Caught
We sneak through the back gates then we run all the way there.
We are so scared of getting caught we forget what we bought.

We want to be like the cool kids so we try to do bad things only to wind up getting caught, guess I should just start smoking pot.

We make it back to the wall, then we see a dreaded face.
We can't find a place to hide so we just start running away.

We want to be like the cool kids so we try to do bad things only to wind up getting caught, guess I should just start smoking pot.

I'm sitting in an office chair trying to make nervous conversation.
All this for a stupid chocolate milk I regret this whole day.

We want to be like the cool kids so we try to do bad things only to wind up getting caught, guess I should just start smoking pot.
Track Name: Discrimination Song
Picture this in your little head, they are all but dead.
All the racists, and the rapists, and those homophobic faces.
There'd be no stereotypes behind your food, no one would give a fuck if I kissed a dude.
If we could live in a world without discrimination, it'd be like living in a hippies imagination. Wouldn't that be cool? Wouldn't that be neat?

Hey, Fuck off! hey , fuck you!

I've got one more message for you, listen closely for your special clue: don't be a dick, don't be a douche.

Hey, fuck you! Hey fuck you!
Track Name: Juana's Wedding
What my luck I have spilt my very last cup
and what the fuck will I do cuz it's landed butter up
I hope to find some that may remain
but it blends in with the hay and grain

Ill be on your right you'll be on my left as we decide who starts, hold it till you laugh now we need some tunes, we know exactly what we'll hear, maybe some Bad Books, Weezer or Offspring
Maybe some Nirvana Beatles or Pixies.
The night is in a haze, going by in a daze.

The world zooms in the world zooms out I can feel my blood I can count my cells the night is in a haze.

What about the food,
what about the food,
what about the food.
Track Name: Mud
I walk into the street, some big kids I do meet
They say they hate me
I ask can I play as well, they tell me go to hell
They really hate me I don't know why

Chorus :
They throw mud in my face
and call me a disgrace
cause they don't want me to play
I try to run away, they beat me up with sticks and call me a dumb prick

I'm screaming out in great pain, I call my mommy's name
she's nowhere in sight
I try to go run home, they won't leave me alone
I'm in a puddle of my own piss

Chorus

I wanna go home...
Track Name: People are stupid
People are stupid,
you know it's true,
people are stupid they'd gladly eat poo.
I know you think I'm not talking to you,
when in fact I'm speaking directly at you.

I understand it, the ignorance is blissful
and you don't have to worry about what is mindful.

I wish I was stupid, kind of like you. Then I'd be stupid too and it'd be pretty cool.
No more scarce and no more fright, no more math keeping me up at night

I understand it, the ignorance is blissful and you don't have to worry about what is mindful.

I know I'm stupid,
I know it's true,
and I try to hide it but I don't do too good of a job.

I understand it, the ignorance is blissful
and I don't have to worry about what is mindful.
I understand it, the ignorance is blissful
and I don't have to worry about what is mindful.
Track Name: Sparkly Blue Bananas
I ask hey mister how are you?
Piss of you runt or you'll get my boot.
I say hey lady are you well?
Shove off or I'll say that you fell.

What the hell just happened?!
I didn't know that kindness was a sin.
But I guess that it makes sense, all growing up scared in a broken.

I don't know who else to blame,
I give up just get the hat and pull ______ name.
Hey can you help me please?!
I would but what's it gotta do with me?

What the hell just happened?!
I didn't know that kindness was a sin.
But I guess that it makes sense, all growing up scared in a broken makeshift fence.

This one's for all of you out there in your dirty underwear. No one cares!
Track Name: Stormtrooper
Go home, sit down, pop myself a soda.
I know it won't last, they'll be home soon enough.

Gotta figure it out , got to know what to do,
gotta figure it out hey I know what to do.

We can: go outside and ride our bikes all day long, go outside and climb a tree till we fall down, go outside and do as we please, hey we’re outside look at those tree!

I don't care what you say, I don't know what to do today.
Gotta figure it out , got to know what to do,
gotta figure it out hey I know what to do.

We can: go outside and ride our bikes all day long, go outside and climb a tree till we fall down, go outside and do as we please, hey we’re outside look at those trees! Look at those trees!
Gotta figure it out, got to know what to do.

Hey guys I figured it out! I know what we can do! Those so many different things!
we can..we can..we can!

go outside and ride our bikes all day long, go outside and climb a tree till we fall down, go outside and do as we please, hey we’re outside look at those tree!
Track Name: Terrible, You're Gonna Hate It
Maybe I'll adopt a dolphin,
maybe I'll say something sane.
Both are equally unlikely, that's ok I'm happy anyway.

I don't care what you think about me, I will figure it out.
I don't care what you feel about me I will figure it out.

I wish I could be batman,
just to make Raymond jealous.
I wish I could be blalala, just to make lalala jealous.

I don't care what you think about me I will figure it out.
I don't care what you feel about me I will figure it out.

I wish I could
figure out words for this part
cuz I never wrote them down. (ok, side note... I guess we technically did at this point)

I don't care what you feel about me, I will figure it out.
I don't care what you feel about me I will figure it out.
