about

This album was originally recorded while we were all young lads in High School. We used the exact original audio files that were on Paul, but completely transformed the sound with our advanced technology and robot counterparts. This is what Paul should have sounded like.

This was all remixed and remastered in Jesse's apartment in Seattle.

Track Name: Gimme Formal
Prom night is like the pockets of a tux
All sewn up: nothing on the inside
Disillusioned youth in flux
Buy your dream night: hope it's in your size

Pose for pictures, smile with your teeth
Is anybody here having fun yet?
Just when I think I'm ready to leave
Tie me to the mast: here comes a siren!

Please don't mistake this for an attack
I just wrenched that knife from my achin' back
My date's out dancing with other guys
Come on, girl, you want to give this a try?
What's the worst that could happen?
We both go home not quite relaxing?
This could be the best night of our lives!

Oh these thoughts will get me barred from heaven
I can't pull off a dress, but man it works for you
Every time you touch my arm I stiffen
Do you wanna dance? Oh man I hope ya do!

Please don't think I got off track
I just wrenched that knife from my bloody back
Bridget's out dancing with Tyler and Steve
I can dance with YOU girl! I'm not Chris Reeve
What's the worse that could happen if we try?
Neither you nor I would go home dry?
This could be the best night of our lives!

(solo!)

I sit by myself, drinking my tea
You come over and you speak just to me
You suggest that we give this prom a whirl
I'm not sure that's such a good plan, girl
Can't you see that I'm a total freak?
An obnoxious, phony red-haired geek?
I've wanted you since freshman year
My head is there but baby you are standing here
I keep telling myself you're taken
I want you bad, honey, I'm not faking
You'd make this the best night of my life!
Track Name: Let's Fall in Love
Let’s fall in love, let’s fall in love
Let’s look up at the stars above
We’ll see the pulsars and the bright stars
And the nebulas, too.
We’ll only see what we want to see.

Let’s fall in love, let’s fall in love
We’ll be like two stars from the movies
Holding hands and holding breaths
We are so PG-13!
That’s you and me. Wouldn’t that be neat?

Let’s fall in love let’s be like everyone else
Strolling through the park and through the dark under my sheets
Maybe lust can be what love should be?

Let’s fall in love, let’s fall in love!
We’ll run through fields of gold
You never know just how old we will be.
Let’s wait and see.

Sometimes! I know my heart was made for you
Sometimes you! You look at me and it feels brand new
My heart is like a grand piano
And you sit at the keys
Sometimes I hope that you will be the one
To set me free
Yeah!

Let’s fall in love, let’s fall in love!
I’ll be the lead to your rhythm
Your hand in mine our hearts in time sand through an hourglass
We can watch the hours pass

Let’s fall in love, let’s FALL in love!
Maybe you’re exactly like me?
Confused and lonely, you’re the angel for me
Maybe we should be
Not us.

Sometimes! I know my heart was made for you
Sometimes you! You look at me and it feels so true
My heart is like a violin
And you’re holding the bow
Sometimes I hope that you will be the one I call home

lovelovelove

oh no OH NO!!!
I don’t think I’m the one for you
I know I KNOW! That you have major trust issues
My heart is like a dying soldier
And you’re the bayonet
I’m seventeen!! I don’t know if I’m ready yet

Oh holy fuck I am so fucked I don’t know what to do
I’m sad and lonely and I know that I will hurt you too
Why do you insist?
Why do we persist?
But you’re so pretty, you’re so perfect I could never say no

Why would I ever, EVER want you to go?

Oh no.

I’m doomed.
Track Name: We're All Alright
I don't feel anything.
I don't feel a thing at all
I see my past stretched out in front of me
Like the ghosts of all the dead and gone
I was the war between the states

Why won't you let me escape?
I'll take a walk northwest of Anywhere
Along the continental divide
I will let my instincts be my guide
I'll be alright
We're all alright

But now I'm going away
I'm gonna take what's left inside of me
I'm gonna leave my friends and family
As I walk away I know they'll all sneer and say
"But I'll be alright"
We're all alright

* * *

We're gonna brawl!
Gonna fight on a Saturday night
I'm gonna punch it away till I'm feeling alive
Till there's LIFE coursing through what is making me up
I don't know who you are but cha better shut up
I'm alright!
We're all alright!

You can't cage me
I am drunk right out of my mind
I don't see anything but the blood running red
I won't be the creature that you want me to be
Don't you dare lecture me about responsibility
I'll be alright

I spent high school spitting out bummed cigarettes
I filled my head with alcohol and a load of regrets
I should fly, but I can't evolve: I've regressed
I'm not the boy to take home to your mother to keep her impressed!
But I'm alright

Oh I am all wrong
I don't know what to do with my life
So I'll find young blood on a Saturday night
I won't stop till I can't feel any last punch
A mile away

I'll sail away
Track Name: Love Universe
I'm not feeling clean, they've torn us apart at the seams
The end is nigh, so it seems...
It's not time to die, we must take to the skies
C'mon I'll teach you how to fly

We will sail past Jupiter's moons
Olympus Mons, Berada Nikto Klaatu
I will show you how it's done
We'll set the controls of our TARDIS at the sun

There's no way they'll find us
The starlight will guide us
Into our Love Universe!
We'll go supernova
You'll feel it all over
We were not meant for this world

Oh, you are mine
Let's lose our space and our time
It's all we must do to survive
Oh, I'm feelin good!
Nobody should be without the one that they love

There's no way they'll find us
The starlight will guide us
Into our Love Universe!
We'll go supernova
You'll feel it all over
We were not meant for this world!

You are mine
If we lose our space my dear, we will lose our time
Our Love Universe
I need you with me tonight
Don't let me go

Don't let me go...
Track Name: Crrrrak'd
I got my crack on
I got my Patron
I want to rock tonight

And if you find me
Well there's a line, G
It's going down tonight

Four Lokos in this bitch,
Honey let me see them tits
Cuz I'm just trying to have a good time

East coast represent, I am in my element
And I'm just trying to have a good time

Honeys in the club, I'm not lookin for love
I'm just here to feel you up and cry
It's my destiny that you belong with me
(I don't even need yet another hand to feed)
Because I'm on crack tonight
(Because I'm on crack tonight! I'm on crack tonight)

I'm not here to go.
I am not a ghost.
I'm on crack again.

Don't tell your mother or your father
That you're the kinda daughter
That would go into the club with a stranger

A masked man!
Do you believe in life after love?
(Love, trick, love, bitch)

I'm not here to prove anything to you
Except the size of my dick-
(shit's HUGE)
- and wallet. I will buy you anything at all.

CHORUS

Catch a ride in a taxi, wit yo ass looking classy
No shirt-no shoes, freaky in the chassis

I am not your friend,
I'll kick your ass out at the bend
Ain't no fighting my addiction because
I'm
on
crack

AGAIN
Track Name: Into the Night
They're closing down Arlington
The dead have found the newest way to rise:
Suck motivation from the living!
They've clawed their way through earth and stone
Hooked on to me - oh I am gone
Fret not for me, I'm not alone
I'll waste away
Oh my dismay!!

Don't save me, you don't need me
I'm just a speck on earth
I'm all alone, don't waste your breathing!
Don't bother. I'm a goner!
Oh I'll go off and on my own I'll fall alone
Into the night

There's nothing left here to love
All of my friends abandoned me
They left my flesh for all the zombies
Now I'll turn to one of them ((Oh no!))
You'll never see my face again
Don't watch me fade away
Don't look at me!!

Don't save me, you don't need me
I'm just a speck on earth
I'm all alone, don't waste your breathing!
Don't bother. I'm a goner!
Oh I'll go off and on my own I'll crawl alone
Into the night
Track Name: Laika Come Home
yougetwhatscomingtoyou

I'm in the back country, looking to leave this place
Say so long to the Earth, send me to outer space
I'm in the back country, looking to hitch a ride
I need a way outta here, I need a place to hide

I'll shake paws with Laika
I'll breathe the air of Mars
I'll find my place in the galaxy
Cuz there is no one here for me
This planet needs one less life

When will you come home?

I'll shake paws with Laika
I'll find my way back home
I will finally be alive
For out there in the stars I'll thrive
Never to see this wretched place again
Track Name: Cold War Kids
I'm not telling you the world would end on Tuesday
I'm not telling you that I'm always right
While the kids are all outside, we'll look up to the sky
I'll tuck you in for that long nuclear night

And now they're rolling out that nuclear parade
I for one just cannot stomach this charade
From New York to the depths of the black sea
This mutual destruction is not for me!

Well I don't think that anyone should live forever
But I was hoping we would make it through the week
While you're saying your goodbyes,
I'll be longing for your eyes
There won't be much earth left for the meek

Cuz now they're rolling up that Hollywood parade
I for one just cannot stomach this charade
From the Kremlin to the depths of the black sea
This worldwide suicide is not for me

(Jitterbug!)

I thought that we would make it through September
Late October at the very least
While you are dying in my arms
I'll be praying they disarm
I'll be holding you through the big sleep

uhhhhhhnononoNO
There's not much here left to say,
But I don't wanna die today
This whole MAD is not for me!!
Track Name: Until the End of Time
If you lie next to me
Don't you see we can hear the words that
Were never meant to be
Look up at the sky! Unleash my tie!
I'll stay with you, beautiful, till the end of the night

It doesn't have to end, we can still be friends
I'll hold you to the morning, we can start a trend
You can stay my pal! I'll keep you in line!
We can stay together girl until the end of time

I will marry you
I will stay true
Put the ring on your finger
I'll put it on mine
We can stay forever girl:
Until the end of time

--keep it in line! I think about you every time I shut
My eyes
I love your hair, which is really neat!
I love you from your eyes down to the soles of your feet
When you're alone at night, you should be with me
We can stay together us two can become a 'we'
Put the ring on your finger
I'll put it on mine
We can stay together girl
Until the end of time!
Until the end of... time...

Who you wanna be?
You can be you I will remain me
Meet me tonight, if you've heard my rhyme
Just leave him girl stick with me till the end of time
Maybe one day! Maybe ONE day!
You don't have to believe, you just have to see
That I was meant for you
You were forever meant for me

I will marry you
I will stay true
You put the ring on your finger,
I'll put it on mine
We can stay together girl
Until the end of time

Until the end of time.
Track Name: Remember the Good Times
If we lay here reminiscing
With the friends we've made these past years
Thinking, hoping we'll remember
All the good times spent together

Let's think back as we move forward
Let's think back to our days as kids
All the scenes to try and fit in
Going to parties like others did

Our eyes see the future, but our hearts see the past
So let's just remember the good times we've had

Let's just lay here, hoping, praying
For the future that's awaiting
Losing loved ones dear to your heart
As we travel so far apart

Can't back down, there's only forwards
Losing feet, but gaining ground
Knowing there's no way to do this
I'll just feel my way around

Our eyes see the future, but our hearts see the past
So let's just remember the good times we've had

As close as we are, we're so far away
From living our lives and seizing the day
The times that we've shared, the laughs and no-cares
The friendships we loved will always be there
