Track Name: Spookster
Light flickers in through the cracks in the wall
an old abandoned shack where the spiders crawl
night fall is coming
there's no moon tonight
I guess we're camping out by candle light
try to spark a flame with wet matches
pickin' cobwebs from your eyelashes
when everything is silent
my heart beats so violent
a hint of irony when spooks spook the spookster

scaredy cat
run so fast
who spooked the spookster?
scaredy cat
run so fast
who spooked the spookster?

Year after year
I have to embrace my fears
tremblin' in my boots I nearly break down in tears
living in a nightmare that keeps re-occuring
If I could prove it's in my mind
I'd find it reasurring
cannibals and witch doctors chanting by the fire
raising wicked spirits swirling in a smoky spire
manifestations, incantations
I'm getting scared
now change the station

Home, home
Tonight
Is where I wanna be

Home, home
Tonight
Is where I wanna be
Track Name: Refrigerator Magnet Alphabet Love Letters
across the shores
of tuesday's seas
we kissed the sands
on hands and knees

the king declared
a mighty war
then choked on a pretzel
while checking the half time score

from check
to check mate
now that's pretty good
for the first date

and house plants
can slam dance
but that's only
from the first glance

now save me
I'm crazy
I ate the purple pastries

check yourself
put it into perspective
right now

she puts you in the position
where you've gotta make a decision

you can multiply your feelings
and still end up with division

refrigerator magnet alphabet love letters
always break my heart
*break my heart

now save me
I'm crazy
I ate the purple pastries

check yourself
put it into perspective right now
Track Name: Perry Mason
Unspoken rhyme detects unwanted crime
with thoughts, diversions, sudden schemes
corridors unveil like underground streams
pathways blocked, we'll crack these rocks
hammers, rifles, notepad, ink
floating minds will surely sink
pride and envy lack soulful style
as codes unfurl and fingers dial
scanning chains for weakened links
collecting dust, unbending kinks
no case worth winning for a smile
innocent men stand on trial

The night is dark
the falcon flies overhead
Track Name: Radio Moanstar
Driving in my car
I turn the radio on
listenin' to the stations
with the latest songs
I need a fresh jam
so I can sing along
then I turn the radio off
cuz it don't turn me on

808 party beat
with a recycled melody
every auto-tuned voice
committing lyrical felony

prepubescent pop-star
with a record deal
you're just another way
to sell a happy meal

every nu-metal breakdown
with the same chug-a-chugs
every gangsta rap song
about bitches and thugs

chopsticks playin'
at every piano recital
Celine Dione again on American Idol?!

now every teenie bopper
will be rockin' the suburbs
getting wasted off liquor
from their parents' cupboards

If you wanna know how to get mass appeal
just buy your way into a record deal

Driving in my car
I turn the radio on
listenin' to the stations
with the latest songs
I need a fresh jam
so I can sing along
then I turn the radio off
cuz it don't turn me on

record execs
confusing wealth with talent
picking full figured women
and men that look gallant

half time show
behind the line of scrimmage
selected to portray
one nation's image

songs about love
reaching 90 percent
tragically ending
in lover's lament

cannon in D
is a hot chord progression
a popular hit
on Green Day's live sessions

all you need
is an acoustic guitar
your daddy's trust fund
and you're bound to go far

Driving in my car
I turn the radio on
listen' to the stations
with the latest songs
I need a fresh jam
so I can sing along
then I turn the radio off
cuz it don't turn me on
Track Name: Steamy 6 String Luv Affair
run my fingers
up your smooth neck
touch you
and tease you
with every fret

we can warm up
or just play hot
maybe someday
we can tie the knot

I can use my fingers
to get you scream
with each downward stroke
we share the same feeling

now we're really rockin'
and I'm startin' to sweat
drippin' on your body
making you all wet

make me do
what you want me to

music is for making love
Track Name: She Shreds
no more cause
for jealousy
I've got the axe
to fall a tree

rich kids
old guys
lucky stiffs

behold
the beholder
of master riffs

she shreds so fine
with dark
glimmering shine

so glad she's here
so glad she's mine

no wax can buff
that's tough enough
no spit can shine
this friend of mine

she shreds so fine
she shreds so fine
she shreds so fine
Track Name: Obtuse Recluse
you're messed up
from fighting
so you're living in hiding

that bruise on your body
from riding off the bike path

breaking in
to your treasures
better find a new stash

your girlfriend's making whoopee
with all of your best pals

but it doesn't seem to bug you
cuz you're just as shallow
yeah you're just as shallow

obtuse recluse
refusal is loose
no more taking abuse
from the pill
or the noose

in soulful benediction
you weigh your own afflictions
and bear them in the halo
of a tumultuous cloud

parade on through the hailstorm
why do you look so forlorn
you're gonna pray
that one of those golf ball sized ones
hits you in the head

then revelation
sweet revelation
you're gonna pray
that one of those golf ball sized ones
hits you in the head

obtuse recluse
refusal is loose
no more taking abuse
from the pill
or the noose
Track Name: Space Witch
open your eyes
there's flashing lights
in the skies

conspiracies arise
and stalk through the night

no one believes
yet acts too surprised
when I flag down the pilot
and take a hit off a pipe

I'm not saying
I'm an intergalactic fanatic
I just wanna know
if there's life on your planet

now the landing is clear
and I'm feeling no fear
as the mothership glows
and lights up the field

electro-magnet static
raise the hair on my back
for a second or two
thought I was under attack

til she opened up
the double doors
and lured me inside
offered me a seat
so naturally
I obliged

before I could speak
I found my head in a vice
she said relax baby
I'll just need a slice

relax
I just need a strand of your DNA
relax
I just need a strand of your DNA

she hooked up an IV
and pumped me with chemicals
I could feel it flowin' through me
straight through my ventricles

then juice to my brain
and I feel empowered
no longer walk the streets
like a coward
but the taste in my mouth
still sour
so sour
so I take a spongue
and I scrub and scour
for hours

son of a bitch
*son of a bitch!
I've been abducted
*abducted
abducted by a space witch
Track Name: To the Night
carry the melody
from the G to the C
now feel the masterpiece
when the flour hits your feet
now feel the energy
when you move to the beat
now come on
you got it
he-ey

this one goes to the night
this one goes to the night
to the night
to the night
