Track Name: The Scene Section
I'm all messed up again
I can't hold this coffee cup, but then
it's so cold
The Plaza's spinning 'round
I'm dizzy from driving up and down
The Scene's section's bands gigs lists all jam-band hybrids

That speaker's all but blown
it so loud in here at least at home
there's no crowd
I don't know anyone
at least at home there's grass and warm rum
the scene sucks you in but sucks when your within

What'cha wanna do? What'cha wanna do?
I don't know...

Oh, let's call it a night
this quite hopeless plight
and there's melodies inside my head ascending and descending
next weekend comes bringing all brand-new doldrums

What'cha wanna do? What'cha wanna do?
I don't know...
Track Name: You're Too Young
They keep their eyes on you
anesthetize you
try to define you
wine and dine you
nickel and dime you

But for once in your life you found someone
so be good to yourself
though you've only just begun
they're wrong when they say
"you're too young"

do what you like
go where you please
with whomever
whenever you please
whatever

They won't know that they're wrong 'till your older
a generation
impatient
and bored on vacation
don't believe them when they say
"you're too young"

stay out all night
take what you like
be whomever
whatever you like
whatever

They'll television-ize
patronize you
try to "upsize" you
say "don't do as I do
but do as I say"
for a steady job and steady pay
there's sacrifices
and vices
all the way
and a premature grey
please, don't do it

You're too young
you're too young
you're too young

They say "do it like this"
they say "do it like that"
like that and like this
oh, what're you gonna miss?
Track Name: Oh! Woe is Me
Mixed up kids mixing drinks at church mixers
virginal catholic boys and lesbian sisters
do "The Collapse" and learn of love through rude whispers
oh, woe is me

Dim wifey, tethered, met her husband who wed her
no worse or better for the fit of her sweater, but
Anais Nin's letters led her to studded leather
oh, woe is me
oh, woe is me

Punk rock poser poster-boys playing they're hard
while hairless, barely legal teens smoke and deal cards
the vanguard of the avant-garde or dull retards?
I think I know

I joined this band 'cause I heard I could get some
it was a lie, a decade's past since I last come
I put my anguish in song here's a new one it's called:
"Oh! Woe is Me"
Track Name: The Foxes' Teeth
Listen, listen

Boxes
in boxes
the foxes
have built
and guard the hen house

Rain free
and comfy
a waived fee
for range-free
applicants right now

Listen, listen

What's that in the distance?
Is there something outside the door?
I hear it coming closer
it's a sound I haven't heard before

Tick-tock
the house clock
plays the cock
and crows
to greet the new day

Buzzing
hens fussing
a rushing
then nothing
but the foxes' teeth

Listen, listen

What's that in the distance?
Is there something outside the door?
I hear it coming closer
it's a sound I haven't heard before
Track Name: The Passersby
The Passersby

All the passersby and people in the shops
look at us as if to say
"please just go away"
it doesn't matter 'cause they don't know what we've got
they don't know how far and wide
we searched to be side by side

Through the alleys to our poorer-quarter haunt
we're all alone at last
and we've the last laugh
as they work themselves to death for things they want
all though we may be poor
we've so much more

Ain't no church bells
will ring and just as well
we'll do it as we please
wear it on our sleeves of hospice pleather
and come what may
we're gonna stay
together

The world rushes by all around
but we don't see a thing or hear a sound
we're lost tonight
under starlight
and in all the love that we've found

and come what may
we're gonna stay
together
together
together, forever
together
Track Name: Our New Track
All aboard we saved you a seat
act now and get this cool treat:
fresh baselines a dope beat

So here's a pillow just sit back
plug the headphones into the jack
and cue up our new track

First you hear this
then you hear that
next it's the drums
(drummer play those drums)
now it's time to have some fun

Do, do, do, etc.

Hey!

Our destination is unknown
our guide the synthesized tone
our home this rocketship

And if this ship should rattle and shake
and if the sub-woofers quake
it's just we've come to the break

Where you'll here this
and you'll here that
next it's the bass
(Dusty play that bass)

[Now it's time to rock this place]

Do, do, do...

Our destination is unknown
our guide the synthesized tone
our home this rocketship

So here's a pillow just sit back
plug the headphones into the jack
and cue up our new track
