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: 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: 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: 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: Robot Trevor
Lookit him go!

Look at Trevor robot
He is a great big robot
Look at Trevor Robot
Walk right down the street
He shoots lasers from his eyes
You can’t see through his disguise
He’s a big damn robot
And he’s gonna rape your kids.

(Jesse) Robot Trevor, Robot Trevor, Robot Trevor, look at him go!
(Brendan) Gonna get him gonna get him gonna get him gonna get him gonna get him
(Cody) RAPE! RAPE! RAPE!
(Everyone) Look at him go!!

Look at Trevor Robot
He is a great big robot
It is Robot Trevor
And he’s here to rape your kids
I can see that he is strong
I think his name might be John
I would want to ask him
But then he would vaporize me
And rape me.

(Jesse) Robot Trevor, Robot Trevor, Robot Trevor, look at him go!
(Brendan) Gonna get him gonna get him gonna get him gonna get him gonna get him
(Cody) RAPE! RAPE! RAPE!
(Everyone) Look at him go!!

Oh, Robot Trevor! Don’t rape me!

RAPE. RAPE. RAPE. RAPE. RAPE. RAPE. RAPE.

RAPE!!!!!

Rape. Rape. Rape. Rape!
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 zombie
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: Maybe Never
Girl I'm no liar!
Tonight the street's on fire
I got a souped up coup
And I'm ready to escape this mire

Join my endeavor! We could last forever!
Or maybe never. Or maybe never. Or maybe-

Girl I'm not lying!
So honey, why you buying?
Things are better left unsaid now
There's no denying
But I'm no liar
I'll set your world on fire
And in the heat we'll meet
We'll rumble and perspire

Don't be 'whatever'! You are so much better!
Or maybe never. Or maybe never. Or maybe-
Track Name: I'll Replace You (Paul ver.)
I don't know, I don't know just what to do
But I think, but I think I'm eying you
And I think that you think I think you're easy
Yes I do.

Maybe we, maybe we could take a turn?
Grab a match, light a fire, let's watch this burn
We could be you and me:
Something un-special

I don't think I like, I don't like your attitude
The way you sound so rude
And I don't want to feel I'm trapped in a minefield again
I've lost another friend.
I'll replace you, soon.

Who are you, who are you, are you to judge?
Who am I? Who am I to hold a grudge?
I did this whole thing to myself
Don't you know?

None to point the finger at, to blame
I'll just let this dark lust rot away
Atrophied, it's arrived, it is an awful disgrace

I don't think you're worth half of what I spent on you
I hope I hurt you, too.
And I don't think I'll heal
I need something real again.
I've lost another friend.
I'll replace you, soon.

I'll replace you.
Track Name: District 9
My name is Wikus, motherfucker, I'm a corporate toolshed
Only 27, bout to pump a fucker full of lead!
I'm riding in a robot. Ya think you're gonna live?
HA! I think not!

I got splashed by some alien goo,
Don't know where to go
I don't know what I'm gonna do.
Won't make it out alive
From District Nine!!!

I don't sleep, motherfucker, always on the run
I'm using alien guns, gon' put a cap in you, son!
Motherfuckers want to eat me!
Not in the good way, not so sweetly.
Now I've got ammunition - I'm on top of the earth!
You pull up in a tank, you pull away in a hearse
No way to survive
In District Niiiiine!!!!

They call me Wikus, motherfucker, not a name to forget!
I'm a tornado of death, I am a public threat
I'm saving Christopher Johnson
That father's on the mothership chillin with his son
If you see me coming YOU HAD BETTER RUN
Got forty bullets with your name in the barrel
Of my gun

There ain't no place to hide!
The last breath that you breathe will be
air
from
DIS
TRICT

NINE
Track Name: Lions Eradicate! Alligators Halt!
Every day it gets closer
But I can't wait till this is over
This anticipation's killing me
But I don't regret what I need

I stare into the summer skies
And realize it's worth those eyes
Like dandelions in the breeze
I can't wait till they whisper to me

And I don't care
If there's lightning crashing down
Nothing will ruin this, this moment

And I'll take flight
Navigate across the world
So I can finally just see you

Here we are - it's one year later
it feels like the day we met here
I still don't care what they think because
You're all that matters to me

This future's so uncertain
Who cares? That's not important
Our caliber of fortitude
Is more than enough to get us through

(I love you, I love you. 'Til the end of time. I love you, I love you. From now until forever.)
Track Name: The Ballad of Tarmo
There once was a man, a man by a very special name
He came to this world, lead here by the mystical gods
From his magical land Estonia
He came across, on a boat like SO many do
He is strong! He is fat! And by the end of this song
YOU WILL KNOW HIS NAME

His name is Tarmo! His name is Tarmo!

My name is Tarmo, I come from Estonia
Came to America to be the world's strongest man
I weigh 400 pounds! I weigh 400 pounds!

His name is Tarmo! His name is Tarmo!
His name is Tarmo! Tarmo Mitt. Tarmo Mitt.

I came here from across the ocean
I left behind a wife and nine kids
My name is Tarmo. My name is TAR-mo!

When Tarmo came to America, he dreamed of great things, like winning the World's Strongest Man Competition, which he did when he killed everyone you know, everyone you will EVER know! He will return to Estonia with the heads of his enemies, and everyone will sing the praises of:

TARMO WILL RETURN
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
Track Name: Grow Old
I lie down in the evening wishing you were to my right
Your body like an angel silhouetted in the light
I touch myself in darkness and safety
And think of you.

I'll hide behind my apathy, concoct another smile
I'll go and catch a movie and be happy for a while
All my hopes, my dreams, and my freedom
Belong to you.

You'll never be my property, I'll never be your girl
I'll curl up in my room and I will hide it from the world
I will go out with boys
But I'll think of you.

Cuz you're cute just like a cucumber, you're cool just like a cop
I dream about you naked, I think of you on top
I just don't give a ffffuck
If I'm with you.

I want to grow old with you.
Smell the morning dew.
Whisper me and you.

I want to grow old with you.
Only kiss the truth.
Only me and you.

I'll switch my fucking homeroom, avoid you for a year
Talk to you again when my feelings have disappeared
The hardest thing I'll ever have to do
Is walk away from you.

I'll never grow old with you.
Forget the morning dew.
Abolish me and you.
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...
