Track Name: 80 Dollars And No Sense
Featuring Ohmstudio user drumaholic on drums. My first solo album was to be based around this song but I couldn't drum it as well as this fine fella did here.

its just another fucking long line to wait in
for a ride you'll never take
its just another long fucking look you need to take
but wont, too afraid to make

(eighty dollars)
why do we put ourselves through
by the numbers conversations
as the sinking ship sails
(and no fucking sense)
and from the office of my administration

hey how's it going?
I miss you too
fuck you
and I don't really care
hey
how's it going?
I don't really know
everything I had never thought I'd cared about
is fucking gone
but hey
I've got this check to cash

(eighty dollars)
why do we put ourselves through
by the numbers conversations
as the sinking ship sails
(and no fucking sense)

I've got this check to cash
happy new year bitch
merry Christmas
don't kill yourself
Track Name: Alternateen
Featuring drumaholic on drums. This song was originally improvised with Luke, Chris, and Allen. I just couldn't let it go. Probably the only song I will ever record featuring djembe or references to both Syd Barrett and Bush.

returned the red walls to green
I went and I had to work the south park
an amount of regret
and eye candy

rebuilt in an hour
I'm through entertaining under this skin

the return of good
we grieved for you
your life was never better
meet Alternateen
remiss now

you're to me
a bad habit I quit
and you're too good for me?

I like the smell of faux golden hair
it makes me think of chemicals between us

gotta fake a smile
it never gets better
gotta fake a smile
it never never gets better
got a fake smile
it never gets better
got to fake a smile
it never gets better
I told you once
and I told you twice
but I can't tell you many times more
Track Name: Dirty Old Man [by The Sonics]
Featuring drumaholic on drums. Originally by the Sonics. I originally intended this track to have vocals by my friend in Boredom Swells and something other than a Motown beat but it is what it is. And I like it.

there's a guy
who lives in our town
who's always
sneaking around

he checks out all the girls that he can
cause he's a dirty old man

well he's old
and he looks like a prune
and his wolf whistle
is way outta tune

well he checks out all the chicks that he can
cause he's a dirty old man

and he drinks
his homemade punch
that's why
he's out to lunch

well he checks out all the chicks that he can
cause he's a dirty old man
well he's a dirty old man
Track Name: Out Of The Chroma
Featuring drumaholic on drums. This is a unique reworking of the song. I seem to re-record it every couple years and am starting to accept that I am the only one that finds any redeemable value in it.

as it spins on it's axis (axes)
sharpened corner
the earth takes up it's tilt as her retribution

after some time when every song has been sung
I'm animated by the light of the sun
counting days is no longer fun
we don't wake up
take me out of the chroma
take me out of the chroma
chroma coda to coma
I won't wake up from this coma
in color if I wake

as it spins on its axis
sharpened corner
the earth takes up its tilt as her retribution

after some time when every song has been sung
I'm animated by the light of the sun
counting days is all we have
when we don't wake up
take me out of the chroma
take me out of the chroma
won't wake up from this coma
chroma coda to coma
take me out of the chroma
won't wake up from this coma
take me out of the chroma
won't wake up from this coma
