Lyrics:

Ignorant:

You tell me how to live my life
You think you know everything
Don’t you see that it turns me away?
Now I do not want to stay
Cowardice runs rampant among your ranks
Blowing smoke but there’s no fire
Angry rants invite no thanks
Discontent they do inspire

You appear to think that you know everything
But in reality you know nothing
Thinking your important
You’re just ignorant
You appear to think that you know everything
But in reality you know nothing
Thinking your important
You’re just ignorant

You stand up so straight
Standing tall and proud
But in fact you’re spineless
All that is just false posturing
With your nose turned up so high
You can’t even smell the crap you make
You’re caught in the yard in fall without a rake
All of your dishonesty’s a big mistake

You appear to think that you know everything
But in reality you know nothing
Thinking your important
You’re just ignorant
You appear to think that you know everything
But in reality you know nothing
Thinking your important
You’re just ignorant
You’re just ignorant

You appear to think that you know everything
But in reality you know nothing
Thinking your important
You’re just ignorant
You appear to think that you know everything
But in reality you know nothing
Thinking your important
You’re just ignorant
You’re just ignorant


Beets:
Ripping with health
I hide my stealth
People will grumble
If I’m not humble
Challenge my dance
You don’t stand a chance
I give you free tip
Don’t take one sip

Beets (I eat my)
Beets (listen to my)
Beets (they are such)
Beets (so glorious)
Beets (I eat my)
Beets (listen to my)
Beets (they are such)
Beets

You won’t oft impress
With food that is a mess
You can bet this is
A problem to address
Maybe not your biz’
But tell me now what you
Consider important
Sticking to your forehead

Beets (I eat my)
Beets (listen to my)
Beets (they are such)
Beets (so glorious)
Beets (I eat my)
Beets (listen to my)
Beets (they are such)
Beets

Beets (I eat my)
Beets (listen to my)
Beets (they are such)
Beets (so glorious)
Beets (I eat my)
Beets (listen to my)
Beets (they are such)
Beets


Toothpaste:

Stinky breath
Smells like death
I feel so bad
It makes me mad
This time’s right
Put up a fight
Need a push?
Get the brush

Cleaning, brushing
All of the time
Scrubbing, rubbing
Remove the grime

I don’t want to show my smile
These cavities stretch a mile
All the time thinking about my gums
I don’t just want to eat some Tums

Cleaning, brushing
All of the time
Scrubbing, rubbing
Remove the grime

Cleaning, brushing
All of the time
Scrubbing, rubbing
Remove the grime


An Endeavor:

Crackling inside, the chasm opened wide
Fire building higher in the sky, better hide
Smoke dances gently, sifting through the air
Innocents cover their mouths, gray in their hair
Some too young to understand the danger all around
Split second decisions – to stay here or jump to ground?
I’ve lived here some years; countless days were quiet
Looking at these tears, I would like to dry it

Fragments shatter to the ground; light glimmers and shines
If nobody survives this, who will build the shrines?
Fleeing in their blankets, out into the cold
This happened so suddenly that fear couldn’t take hold
It’s time to wake up, take stock of your life
If there were emergencies, what things would you take?
Certain objects may appeal but would only cause strife
Meditate upon these questions and make no mistake

This time challenges me
I am scarred forever
This will prove to be
A difficult endeavor

Walking slowly from the scene where our lives were trashed
Every couples steps and that trauma is rehashed
How can we start over so soon when we were just whole?
It’s almost as if my life were dependent on chance
I had always thought that I would be exempt
Maybe living life is just like being in a dance
Sometimes in the spotlight, other times ensemble
Hunker down and help your neighbors, make community

Scorching earth above me
And the choking smoke below
We could easily perish
Here without a hero
This time challenges me
I am scarred forever
This will prove to be
A difficult endeavor

Scorching earth above me
And the choking smoke below
We could easily perish
Here without a hero
This time challenges me
I am scarred forever
This will prove to be
A difficult endeavor
This time challenges me
I am scarred forever
This will prove to be
A difficult endeavor


Turtleneck:

The way it hugs your neck
Shoulders covered tight
I think, what the heck!
It just looks so right

You’re the queen of fashion
If I had to say
I’d save every ration
Just for a glance my way

The way it hugs your neck
Shoulders covered tight
I think, what the heck!
It just looks so right

You’re just so impressive
I may be obsessed
Trying hard to live
In the world you’ve blessed

I worship the ground on which you trod
Building a shrine to honor you
All the lovely things you do
Your brightness shines through dark reality
Oh

The way it hugs your neck
Shoulders covered tight
I think, what the heck!
It just looks so right


User Friendly:

Just press play, they say
Too bad the button’s behind the disc
Trying to figure out how to listen to this album

Everything these days says “just do this/just do that”
But it’s not so simple

Insert A into B
Here, can’t you C this D-light?
I’m E-lated, and F’rustrated

Everything these days says “just do this/just do that”
But it’s not so simple


Fist:

Something is amiss
I can’t believe this
I compare my face
At a rapid pace

Fist! I will place my fist!
Punching through the mist!
Fist! I will place my fist!
Punching through the mist!

They will play some jokes
What of sorry blokes
It’s not that funny
To steal my money

Fist! I will place my fist!
Punching through the mist!
Fist! I will place my fist!
Punching through the mist!

Signs point to maybe
Like a bird so free
I just cannot lie
I can’t wait to fly

Fist! I will place my fist!
Punching through the mist!
Fist! I will place my fist!
Punching through the mist!


Milk:

The first drink I had wasn’t water
You guessed it – it was milk!
I won’t go into too much detail
But quickly I developed an affinity
For the subtle taste of divinity
Now I don’t discriminate
That’s an idea I can stomach

Ideas that are rich like the scratch of an itch
Mental building blocks mysterious
Like the cry of a fox
Beautiful meals my hungers do attract
Loss of interest when it’s heavily taxed
Let me drink in peace
No need for police

Leave it out for too long
It will start to stink
Getting chunky, real bitter
Throw it out, don’t you think?
Try as I might, there’s difficulty
It’s hard for me to discard even a drop
Why is that, you may ask?
Because milk’s got a friend in me

Milk – so rich, so sweet (delish!)
Milk is the greatest, fulfilling my wish
Milk – so rich, so sweet (delish!)
Milk is the greatest, fulfilling my wish
Milk – so rich, so sweet (delish!)
Milk is the greatest, fulfilling my wish
Milk – so rich, so sweet (delish!)
Milk is the greatest, fulfilling my wish

The first drink I had wasn’t water
You guessed it – it was milk!
I won’t go into too much detail
But quickly I developed an affinity
For the subtle taste of divinity
Now I don’t discriminate
That’s an idea I can stomach

Milk – so rich, so sweet (delish!)
Milk is the greatest, fulfilling my wish
Milk – so rich, so sweet (delish!)
Milk is the greatest, fulfilling my wish
Milk – so rich, so sweet (delish!)
Milk is the greatest, fulfilling my wish
Milk – so rich, so sweet (delish!)
Milk is the greatest, fulfilling my wish


Do It:

Time and time again
Opportunities arise
Winds of change will blow
Take off your disguise
I look back to my past
Things I could and should have done
These memories just won’t last
Let’s go and have some fun!

When you think you should (do it, do it!)
When you want to act (do it, do it!)
Even if you’re doubtful (do it, do it!)
Don’t be afraid of risks (do it, do it!)

Always changing, rearranging
Colors reflect all the spectrum
Feel alroyt, gee, bivness is good
Bodies full of energy
Excitement like electric
This could become hectic
Livin’ on the edge
I’ve taken my pledge

When you’re born you’re building knowledge
You’ll get older, maybe go to college
Throw away the fears that hold you back
Be confident in your abilities

When you think you should (do it, do it!)
When you want to act (do it, do it!)
Even if you’re doubtful (do it, do it!)
Don’t be afraid of risks (do it, do it!)


Cherishing:

Wind blowing through my hair
Leaves so strong and green
A dozen weeks ago they’d fall
Now they linger, all

Cherishing my time here
Cherishing my time here

Waves splashing at my feet
Spray so soft and cool
A month ago it was cold
Now joy takes hold

Cherishing my time here
Cherishing my time here
