2791! I wonder what we'll do for fun No one blew us to kingdom come We're thriving In 2791, a new delivery system Judgment day has come and gone No dying...in 2791! In the future you ain't gonna need no Tupperware Everything stays fresh and good sitting in the country air 2791! I wonder what we'll do for fun No one blew us to kingdom come We're thriving...in 2791! In the future everybody's who they want to be Cause they checked a box next to who they want to be In 2791, a new delivery system Judgment day has come and gone No dying...in 2791!

I was 14 years old and I didn't know all that much Then a buddy told me about The Amnesia Record Club All your favorites old and new Carole King and Queen too Elton John, the Moody Blues The list goes on and on Everybody hoot and holler 12 albums for only a dollar Less than a penny a song What an incredible offer You don't even need a stamp Waited four to six weeks for that sacrosanct box to come With my 13 selections from The Amnesia Record Club Coz i didn't forget the gold box Where my bonus selection was marked When I got "Diamond Dogs" played "The Best of Jim Reeves Vol 3" Everybody hoot and holler 13 albums for only a dollar Less than a penny a song What an incredible offer I didn't even need a stamp And every month unless I sent in the card They sent me something else I didn't want Like "Helen Reddy in Concert" I wrote upon it "return to sender" (That ain't no way to treat a lady....) I was 41 years old and I still didn't know that much Then a co-workertold me about The Amnesty File Sharing Club All my favorites old and new Carole King and Queen too Helen Reddy, 2 Live Crew The list goes on and on Everybody holler and hoot 12 trillion albums you don't pay a dollar Less than a penny a song What an incredible offer I didn't even need a stamp

If U Didn't Want Me To Look @ It, U Shouldn't Have Shown It 2 Me words and music by Serene Dominic I love in that hat Your natural habitat Lording over everything you see Are objects in the mirror As close as they appeqar? Unless they;re in the rear they're history If U Didn't Want Me To Look @ It, U Shouldn't Have Shown It To Me If U Didn't Want Me To Look @ It This wasted world and what it could be I think the moon was fulll, you gave my arm a pull And we surrendered to the Dew Drop Inn Lotsa toothless gals acting like your pals People in glass houses shouldn't throw gin If U Didn't Want Me To Look @ It, U Shouldn't Have Shown It To Me If U Didn't Want Me To Look @ It This wasted world and what it could be Lovely to look at, delightful to know and heaven to kiss The sound of your voice is like a breathe of spring Impossible not to miss I love in that dress I love you out that dress You'll catch your death out in the sweltering sun I played the toy pian-a Under your cabana I couldn't leave you now for any ol' one If U Didn't Want Me To Look @ It, U Shouldn't Have Shown It To Me If U Didn't Want Me To Look @ It This wasted world and what it could be

There's a notion I had I could make good times from bad By the way that I rearranged some notes But if my words were true You would let this song in you And it would tell you all that you need to know Songs won't make you love someone But you can love a song It's a lesson never learned When that longing returns I see your face I try to place you in my life But if my beats are tight And the rhythms all fall right My creation alone could make you mine Songs won't make you love someone But you can love a song I know you have a love Someone you chose instead But I still have a chance If this is playing in your head Songs won't make you love someone But you can love a song

Music, I want to thank you now For making me the well-adjusted man I am Music, I've given you my all All of my time, all of the spare change in my hand When I was young I'd hear a song Your rhymes and rhythms carried me along Music you are my bestest friend You never judge or jeer at anything I do Music you're all that's left of me After everyone has left me because of you You says she's gone? I'll sort it out Cause that's what music is all about Oh! Let the music play Have its final say Just like Shannon said Oh! Let the music play Bu you'll never get away Just like Shannon did Music, you never steered me wrong I'll go where you go and I'll follow your klead sheet Music, I don;t trust anyone Who tells music is something that they don;t need And when I'm old I'll hear a song And it will make me forever young Oh! Let the music play Have its final say Just like Shannon said Oh! Let the music play Bu you'll never get away Just like Shannon did

Told you that I'd love you till I died, that's no lie Now my time is over it's your time you must survive And when I'm on the other side I'll send to you a secret sign To make you feel that you're loved To make you feel that you're loved If I didn't do all I could do, I tried, yes I tried I did all that I thought I could do so I'll rectify And when I'm on the other side I'll send to you a secret sign To make you feel that you're loved To make you feel that you're loved They say when you leave this world You don't care about people here If I know me I know that I'd love you anywhere You don't even care about people here You may think it's foolish That I pined yes I pined All those summer nights we spent together so entwined And when I'm gone my secret love for you goes on and on My secret love goes on and on My secret love goes on and on

Nowadays no one plays behind chicken wire Everyone's so polite but it wasn't so that night The girl singer turned to her manager and group And said "I don't know about you But I ain't rockin' in no chicken coop!" So the girl singer sand with her whimsical twang Songs about right and wrong and me and you And she was hot that night Nobody even thought to start a riot And when she hushed her voice the place got quiet And she was part of you When I was still a kid I gazed upon her "Greatest Hits" In a drug store record rack , with a hole punched through the back Her hair was piled so high I was too afraid to buy it But her mascara'd eyes said "Take me home son and you'll be glad you did." Well now she's 72 She musta shrunk I musta grew Guess it's never too late to hold the girl of your dreams And she was hot that night Nobody even thought to question why The girl singer works as hard as she does Because she was part of you Yes she was hot that night Nobody even thought to start a riot And when she hushed her voice the place got quiet And she was part of you

Woulda coulda Stayed at home Playing head games on your phone Mighta tried ta read a book Fingering your precious Nook Ooooo we love you So glad you came, we'll do the same Ooooo we love you More than the town So glad you're down Spoken: uhhh not glad you're sad just glad you're in accord with our proposal Mighta tried ta procreate One more useless online date Posting profile pictures from The Clinton administration Ooooo we love you So glad you came, we'll do the same Ooooo we love you So glad you're down Lets make a sound Ghost traffic speeds by below A metaphor for the passing time Tick tock I'm not sure I should bother Trying to talk to you thru wire When it burns the birds on the line Fine! Woulda coulda hung and chilled Like a painting life is stilled Loved the one you're with again And cut out the middle man Ooooo we love you So glad you came, we'll do the same Ooooo we love you More than the town So glad you're down

"Tell me what I should or shouldn't do I'm too damaged to listen I want to go home but I want to stay here You need to make a decision." All i am to you is a designation driver All you see in me is a ride All you want to do is make a scene And paint the town red with your bloodshot eyes The last words that I heard from your lips before your head hit the bar floor Something about "a crazy afterparty With proceeds going to Darfur." All i am to you is a designation driver All you see in me is a ride All you want to do is make a scene And paint the town red with your bloodshot eyes

Edison 05:50
Written by Serene Dominic & Christopher Pomerenke Flying passed your matchbox houses See the lights go off and on Discount factory outlet showrooms Isn't five of them enough? Maybe when my mind is gone And a quiet life will do I can learn to do fuck all And feel superior to Edison! Edison! I see you push your load along Between New York and Washington The world ain't calling upon Edison Edison! No use in pretending that you 've got anything I need Thought I saw a spark of life a mile back Someone burning trees Maybe when my arteries harden And my fighting spirit dies I could learn to settle here Like a headstone with eyes In Edison! Edison! I see you push your load along Between New York and Washington The world ain't calling upon Edison Edison! I once knew a boy Born and bred in Edison he had the worst sense of fashion He'd leave the house with mismatching socks on He was a loser! He was a loser! He was a loser! He was a loser! And now he's a man Seen the world, it's better off Thanks to his reinvention As someone not fro Edison I want to thank you! I want to thank you! I want to thank you! I want to thank you! All is forgiven! All is forgiven! All is forgiven! All is forgiven! Well I guess we all can breathe a little easier now You're better than Edison And she's better than Edison And the gentleman over there who's losing a ll his hair-DON'T STARE! BUT...he's better than Edison Andy ou're better than Edison NOW! Ain;t no damned town ever gonna bring me down! No way no how! It's never gonna bring me down!

When you use your body to hurt somebody You're not making love, you're making war Now that you're in the business of pushing people's buttons Don't you ever wonder what the big one's for? Now that you're a sex fiend, a sexy sexy sex fiend You can't be satisfied You've got too much pride Who died and made you Pussy Galore? Don't you know that's not what God made a pussy for? Don't you hurt no body You're not making love, you're making war General Chaos meet Major Intervention You need a few good men then you need a few more Now that you're a sex fiend, a sexy sexy sex fiend You can't be satisfied You've got too much pride Who died and made you Pussy Galore? Don't you know that's not what God made a pussy for?
