Hit Song 01:23
you can't wait to hear my voice/selling the rebellion like we had any choice/in your brand new car with a brand new crush/guess i had to guess what was best for both of us/check me out, it won't be long/before i've been through all of it before my hit song
Kandi's Rad 03:27
in her room/all alone/singing Queen/into her videophone/kinda sad/did she know/did you write/that you were leaving/on the seat of her bike/made her mad/now it's gone/whatever you had/T-Rex on vinyl/plus a photograph/the new math/(no way)/(don't say)/(tough break, man, you get what you want)
Prolly Not 02:37
maybe there's something about us/that needs to be said/probably not/maybe it's just time/to shut up/to give up/to lock your will safely away/to be direct/I never had your attention/I had your affection/was that enough?/prolly not/and I can't stand it - i'm sorry/i'm gone/but wait/i'm back/i'm back
Don't Die 02:45
when you die you go to the bottom of the sea/monsters there with eyes on stalks/it's horrifying/you watch their bodies glow in silence/this is the only light/so don't die/when you die you go to work burning receipts/coal and ash, it's not so bad/a bit depressing/ok, it's not how you had pictured it happening/so don't die/cuz it's totally fucked the way everything's moving backwards/and you're forced to watch all old men grow young again/and live with hope after seeing regret take it's toll/and you hear someone whisper from the back/but you can't quite make it out/although it sounds like they said/don't die
