Track Name: I Smell Ice Cream
Why don't you and I ride our bikes in the rain late at night
With nothing but hair on our heads?
We can set off bottle rockets and the sparklers in our pockets
Because sleep is for the dead

And we can save our homework for tomorrow
If we remember to do it at all
And if we don't grow old too fast, we can make the good times last
Be stupid and naive and beautiful

So sneak out, get undressed, now we're under arrest
We can spend the night in jail
Won't they laugh, won't they cry, all your grandkids and mine
When we tell them of this tale

And we can save our homework for tomorrow
If we remember to do it at all
And if we don't grow old too fast, we can make the good times last
Be stupid and naive and beautiful

And if we leave our fears behind, then who knows what we'll find...
Buried treasure, arrowheads, broken arms, broken sleds, flying kites, water fights, things that go bump in the night, roasting s'mores, raising hell, climb the tower ring the bell, waterfall, cannonball, been there, seen it, done it all

And we can save our homework for tomorrow
If we remember to do it at all
And if we don't grow old too fast, we can make the good times last
Be stupid and naive and beautiful
Track Name: Cellar Door
Well I'm not good at arson and I could never start a fire
But I see so many buildings that I want to decimate
But I'm pretty good at breaking shit and there's so much to destroy
This world would be so much better if it were all desolate

So let's break everything ever made for profit
Let's destroy every disgusting machine
Let's all dance and let's all say fuck it,
Let's never hurt another human being
So let's destroy and let's create
We're still good people who like to decimate
Let's destroy and let's create
Let's improve the world with the things we can make

Well I can't write a song and I don't know how to play
But I've got nothing better to do and I've got so much to say
And I've never been good at drawing and I can't really hold a pencil
But I see so many things that I'd love to replicate

So let's make things for love not profit
Let's create together you and me
Let's all dance and let's all say fuck it,
And finally we'll know just what it means
so let's destroy and let's create
We're still good people who like to replicate
Let's destroy and let's create
Let's improve the world with the things we can make
Track Name: Mixtape
I hope you like my mixtape, my mixtape, my mixtape
I hope you like my mixtape, I made it just for you
I hope you like my mixtape, my mixtape, my mixtape
I hope you like my mixtape, I made it just for you
And filled it full of songs I like and I hope you like them too
'Cause I put them on a mixtape, a mixtape for you

I hope you like to ride bikes, to ride bikes, to ride bikes
I'd really like to ride bikes, to ride my bike with you
I hope you like to ride bikes, to ride bikes, to ride bikes
I'd really like to ride bikes, to ride my bike with you
And go into the mountains, into a sky so blue
When it's summer we will ride bikes, I'll ride my bikes with you

You took me to a punk show, a punk show, a punk show
You took me to a punk show and then you took me home
You took me to a punk show, a punk show, a punk show
You took me to a punk show and then you took me home
And when the night was over, I didn't feel alone
'Cause you took me to a punk show and then you took me home

So I'll put this on a mixtape, a mixtape, a mixtape
I'll put this on a mixtape, I made it just for you
So I'll put this on a mixtape, a mixtape, a mixtape
I'll put this on a mixtape, I made it just for you
And you can listen to it or you can throw it away
But I'll put it on a mixtape, a mixtape today
I'll put it on a mixtape, a mixtape today
I'll put it on a mixtape, a mixtape today
I'll put it on a mixtape, a mixtape today
Track Name: Wanderlove
Well your boss just doesn't like you, and that just makes me sad
And my boss he doesn't like me, and that just makes me mad
Well I've had it with this shit, I wish it'd all go away
So let's travel into the darkness into a new damn day

Let's take a car or a freight train, let's leave any way we can
I want to climb some new trees, and walk on some new sands
New places are what I want to see unfamiliarity is what I long for
Except for who you are my dear, you're perfect just the way you are

'Cause we're just two happy-go-lucky people in our cleanest dirty shirts
And our shoes are oh so crusty from playing in the dirt
And I don't miss home at all, no, 'cause home's not where I live
And I don't need a home at all no, when my heart is yours to give

This summer is so bright, these days they are so long
And god I do love Denver, please don't get me wrong
But it feels so good to be out and it feels so good to be away
And it feels so great to be next to you through each and every day

'Cause we're just two happy-go-lucky people in our cleanest dirty shirts
And our shoes are oh so crusty from playing in the dirt
And I don't miss home at all, no, 'cause home's not where I live
And I don't need a home at all no, when my heart is yours to give
Track Name: Take Your Multivitamins
I know you know it's dangerous to travel
There's probably a million ways to die
You could be crushed by a freight train or eaten by a bear
Or struck by lightning by the lord on high

So take your mutlivitamins, take your multivitamins
Take it with a can of steel reserve
'Cause we ain't got wealth, but we still got our health
And I've only got one body to preserve

It takes a lot of work to be a hobo
You do a lot of walking and running
And sometimes a can of beans and a thermos full of tea
It's just not enough to keep your body humming

So take your multivitamins, take your multivitamins
Take it will a 30 rack of beer
'Cause we ain't got wealth but we still got our health
And I won't forget to wash behind my ears

I may be bitten by scabies
I may contract rabies
I might get my throat slit by a stranger
I might get hepatitis
And I may get meningitis
But I can't say I'm ever in danger

If I take my multivitamins, take my mutlivitamins,
Take it with a colt 45
'Cause we ain't got wealth but we still got our health
And I can't believe I've come this far alive
Track Name: Something About The Moon
It seems such an endless night, I looked above and saw the light
Those far away florescent balls of gas
And meteors they crashed and sang the incalescence of your name
And shattered me like I was made of glass

Baby won't you sing with me across the river, through the trees
Tonight the moon is oh so bright
And I can't see a thing past your eyes they look at me so bright
So bright

The lights down in the city they look so goddamn pretty
And make me feel alive in a world that is so shitty
And dancing shadows, stars above, good golly Molly I'm in love with you

The brightness fades it all turns grey
The magic ends and fades away
And there's no moon anymore
But there's a glimmer in your eyes
And they are shimmering like skies
We park the car, get out and watch the sunrise
Track Name: I Don't Eat My Friends
What divides the species from feeling love or fear?
What divides us all divides me and you my dear
So if god gave dominion to honor you and I
I don't believe in god if he's a monster in the sky

People are just animals but people are my friends
That's why I don't eat animals 'cause I don't eat my friends
People are just animals but people are my friends
That's why I don't eat animals 'cause I don't eat my friends

I eat when I am hungry and fuck when I am horny
I lick my wounds when I'm in pain I look for shelter in the rain
So if cats in our living rooms and heifers on our farms
Can live like you and I do, then I shall do no harm
Track Name: Pancakes In My Backpack
Let's forget this political world of lies
We'll grab our bikes and go see the sunrise
Let's forget the day and sleep it all away
And we'll go see a show tonight
We'll skip the drinking and we'll party sober
We'll dance all night til' the songs are over
And I don't want this night to ever end
So let's wake up the next day and do it all again

'Caus alone we will survive
But together we will thrive
So fuck everything else
Besides each other and ourselves

Let's stay up all night til' the crack of dawn
We'll sit and listen to each others songs
Let's drink all of the coffee that you brewed
It's the only thing that will get us through
And survive through these bitter times
But I always feel better with your hand in mine
And I don't want this night to ever end
So let's wake up the next day and do it all again
Track Name: Willow Tree
Take me out to the flat lands where the pastures stretch for miles
No fences, no walls, except to keep our horses safe at night
We won't have to ask the government for our necessities
Supplemental welfare has me on my knees

We'll take only seeds with us an leave flowers in our wake
We will plant a field of dreams and burn our TVs at the stake
When the hunger pains are too much to bear and I've got no place to live
We will swim across the river, stick our shovels in the ground like our ancestors did
Pull the plug on what you take for granted and see the world outside your shell

We were not put here to lay to waste what's in this soil
I was not born to cast my life away in toil
No gods and no masters, no constitutions
Sometimes total destruction is the simplest, strongest solution
And when I die don't you take me to heaven just set my soul free
Leave my ashes in the woods, dig a hole, and plant a willow tree
Track Name: Metal Up Your Posterior
Metalheads just wanna cuddle, it's raining blood into a puddle
Of love
Denim and leather on my back, let's play speed let's smoke crack
Lets drink whiskey and play power chords

Fueled by pizza fuel and rage, we'll burn every bible page
We still love Christians if they're down to mosh
Not here to judge just here to play, we'll drink your beer any day
Metalheads are here to fucking stay

METALHEADS ARE HERE TO FUCKING STAY!!
METALHEADS ARE HERE TO FUCKING STAY!!!!!
METALHEADS ARE HERE TO FUCKING STAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
METALHEADS ARE HERE TO FUCKING STAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Metal is the best, fuck all the rest
:)
