Track Name: 2791 (a new delivery system...)
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!
Track Name: The Amnesia Record Club
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
Track Name: You Can Love a Song
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
Track Name: I Can't Sing Boston
Yellow Teeth Pete had trouble keeping a band
Track Name: Music (I Want to Thank You)
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
Track Name: 1791 (ye olde delivery system)
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
Track Name: The Girl Singer
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

Yesshe 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
Track Name: Woulda Coulda
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
Track Name: Designated Driver
"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
Track Name: Edison
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!
Track Name: You Sexy Sex Fiend, You!
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?
