Thank you for your interest We hope you will be fine But we have decided Your candidacy is not on the line Your permanent record states You were truant three times And then the incident Where you colored outside of the lines Another record Of which we are aware A piece of gum that You placed in Miss Marshall's hair We know you are thinking It was so long ago But you were warned about Throwing a rock in a ball of snow Your auditor noted GOOD BEHAVIOR for thirty years But we strongly believe Past actions will shape future careers Due to these factors We're sure you will agree Your best course of action A reeducation facility

Put Cindy back on the bus She isn't one of us I don't care what you say She's just gotta go away Put Cindy back on the bus Don't make such a stupid fuss Everything she did Everything she said Every way she messed us up Put Cindy back on the bus Do it before I start to cuss Every way she hurt us bad Every way she made us mad Everything she did to fuck us up Hey, driver! Hey driver take her away Hey, driver! Hey I got somethin' to say Don't let her talk to you, don't let her say how she's been wronged Don't let her talk to you, don't let her speak until you're gone Cindy needs to stay on that bus 'Cause you know she ain't one of us She won't know a thing She won't know a thing From now until she wakes up Cindy needs to stay on that bus You really got to listen to us Everything she did Everything she said It's either this or beat her up Cindy needs to stay on that bus Please driver don't make a fuss We paid for the trip There's nothing wrong with it Please go before she can wake up Hey, driver! Hey driver take her away Hey, driver! Hey I got somethin' to say This guy don't know a thing, this guy don't know what's going on This guy don't know a thing, he don't know why we need her gone (We NEED her gone!) Put Cindy back on the bus She isn't one of us Don't care what you say, she's gotta go away Put Cindy back on the bus

Wake up in the morning Before the alarm goes Trying to fall back to sleep Still in last night's clothes Lying half awake, I still can't get up when the beeping starts Why would I Sleepwalk through the morning On the way to work That guy on the bicycle is Such a stupid jerk I think I should push him over Just to show him up But why would I Sometimes it is very hard to keep yourself moving when it's gone haywire Monday morning meeting Going way too long Finished up my coffee but the coffee isn't strong I feel like I need to sleep I need to keep moving but why would I Tuesday PM meeting Life is way too short Everything I try to say cut off with a retort Why does this guy work here, he's a jerk, here, I should shut him up why would I Sometimes it is very hard to keep yourself moving when it's all haywire Oh, listen to me Think about the damage done How hard can it be Just to have a little fun Wednesday morning dreary I get nothing done Thursday comes and Friday goes Still get nothing done I should reconsider my Career choice, find a new voice but Why would I Sometimes it is very hard to keep yourself moving when it's gone haywire

I dreamt I was a husky in my youth It was very odd to be so uncouth I would run around with nowhere to go But to slip and slide in the frozen snow All I did for every day was run around And try not to fall down upon the frozen ground Not caring what was a lie and what was truth I dreamt I was a husky in my youth The world faded and changed until it was light Everything was simple and was such a sight An outline around everything that I could see And colors were simply not quite ordinary I dreamt I was a husky in my youth Starring in a film by Donald Bluth The evil businessman tried to capture me After he ate the yellow snow I made for free The movie went on and on It was two hours long Snow was everywhere In the yard and in my hair As a child I did not like dogs very much They were always wet and messy to my touch So when I dreamt I was a husky youth I woke up in my bed needing to see the truth I found I had changed overnight Into a husky pup much to my fright Just like in the dream I had fur and claws And little black pads on my four paws I did not know how this change could be But then a joyous calm washed over me I could smell what was a lie and what was truth I dreamt I was a husky in my youth

So, there's this pretty weird thing that happened to me recently. I was walking down the street, and this guy came up to me... he was wearing a blanket like a cloak, like he was some sort of wizard or something, but he smelled like pee and feces. I mean, that's not the weird thing, that happens pretty much every day. But anyway he stepped in front of me and said, "Hey, you want a moscow?" I told him no and tried to keep going, but he kept on stepping in front of me, and he was all, "Come on, this moscow, it's great." And I noticed that he was holding this thing in his hands which looked like a clay cow, that was covered in, you know, that fuzzy plant, that looks like moss but isn't. You know, that cheap sort of gift you get at the drug store for that person who you really want to make them aware that you like them but not enough to give a crap about what sort of gift you get them, right? Anyway, so this guy is trying to get me to take the terra-cotta cow and I just want to get home and he's just saying, "Come on, man, take it. I gotta get rid of it, but I don't wanna just throw it out," and I said, "Fine," and I took it, and then he just said, "Thanks!" and ran off really fast. But that's not really the weird part. So, I took this stupid thing home, and figured it would go okay next to my herb garden on my balcony, and so I thought I put it there, but when I went into the kitchen to fill up my watering can, the moscow was sitting next to the sink. Pretty weird, right? Anyway, I just watered it right there, and now... yeah, this is the really, really weird part. It actually turned its head at me – yeah, I know, right? – and it said "Idaho!" Now of course this was really weird. I mean, not only was this little tchotchke talking, but you'd think that if a cow were to talk it'd say something like, "Moo." I dunno, "Milk me." Something like that. Right? But "Idaho?" So I asked, "Idaho?" And it said, "No, Idaho." So, I called this friend of mine and asked her to come over – she's a biologist, I mean – and when she came by she asked what was so important. "Look," I said, "I have this... this moscow." And she said, "O...kay? It's a cow, yeah?" "No, a moscow," I said. "See, 'coz it's like, covered in moss, right?" And she said, "Yeah, I see those all the time. So?" And I said, "Well, this one talks." She just kind of waited for me to say more, and I said, "WIth its mouth." She looked at me funny and said, "You're joking." And I was like, "No, n–here, I'll show you," and I watered it again, and it said, "Idaho." So my friend was kind of weirded out too and she asked, "Idaho?" And then the moscow said, "No, Idaho. Youdaslut." Anyway, they're best friends now.

I think you ought to know I haven't slept in days It seems I'm spending my time Wandering in a haze They say that patience is the opposite of sin But it's wearing thin When I close my eyes I Only see my fears This is the worst time I Remember in years Everything I know is In the rubbish bin I just cannot win Everywhere I turn I Hear this thumping sound Even lying down I'm not on steady ground I hope that in a few days I'll be sleeping in These walls are paper thin

I look in your window and nobody's there last night you told me you'd be doing your hair I really do think if we're going somewhere We should be honest About the feelings we share but you tell another story or you tell another lie it is doing nothing for me i don't know why you even try I'm so very sorry I hope you are fine I worry about you Getting sick all the time So I have to wonder Just give me a clue How you were out with friends While sick with the flu and you tell another story and you tell another lie it is doing nothing for me i don't know why you even try I don't want to hear it How your mother just died This isn't the first time That you have outright lied I know what you're saying Isn't honestly true Or did you believe the person I paid to tell you? but you tell another story or you tell another lie it is doing nothing for me i don't know why you even try and you tell another story and you tell another lie i know you really abhor me i don't know why you even try

It's the last day on Earth I know Everything is coming down We run it to the ground I think we need another take We didn't understand the snow Thought our troubles were gone Conclusions were withdrawn Life was just a big mistake I think we need another take I think we need some shelter We deserve this weather But we're flying to the sun Everything's undone And we're lying on the ground Swallowed up in the sound What we get is what we make I think we need another take It's the last day on Earth I know Everything is coming down We run it to the ground I think we need another take

Why do we all have to be tan? Different shades of a single master plan It is all so boring Baby I am snoring Why do we all have to be tan Black and white and zebra stripes! Red and green would be so keen! Purple blues and other hues! These shades of tan just will not do! If I were a genetic engineer I'd do what I could to bring it here Discrimination would be undone If everyone were the only one Why do we all have to be tan And just a woman or a man Neither both or something in between I think that would be pretty keen but Everyone is just... tan Paisley plaid and polka dot! Colors patterns are so hot! Sure we could all get tattoos But if I did it why would you? If my idea were everyday Of course my plea would go away But other creatures can all have it So we're unique on this planet? Why do we all have to be tan? Different shades of a single master plan It is all so boring Baby I am snoring, oh Why do we all have to be tan

One hundred twenty miles per hour It sure is cold outside alone One hundred twenty miles away After an hour far from home One hundred twenty miles between us Why did you have to hurt me so One hundred twenty miles and counting I'm sorry that I had to go Why did you hurt me was it (turn around and glare) Something that I said (aware) I try and try (unfair) Why did you hurt me why (turn around and stare) Did I have to leave Why do I have to love you (nowhere) 'Till the day I die (prepare) One hundred twenty miles per hour It is now time to move along One hundred twenty miles away From everything that was so wrong One hundred twenty miles between us It is now crystal clear to me One hundred twenty miles and counting We simply were not meant to be Why did I even put up with (turn around and glare) your stupidity Why did I bother with you (aware) Now I cannot see (unfair) How could I let you lead me (catch me unaware) On so very long I hope to never miss you (we share) Now that you are gone (repair) One hundred twenty miles per hour I'm sure to get away from you One hundred twenty miles away It has vastly improved my view One hundred twenty miles between us I just don't need you anymore One hundred twenty miles and counting Good riddance, don't wait at the door

See the little ants walking down the path They don't know how to do anything they're bad at math But a little tiny queen can make some more One and one make two, two and two make four And then what happens next is the worlds collide When a little tiny ant finds the world inside And the little worker ants can all pass the test They all work together to bring everything back to the nest And when someone finds out it doesn't matter The little tiny ants have made their queen get fatter So she can lay her eggs all day So it doesn't matter when the people get the spray There are so many ants that they cannot die For every and that's in the house there's two outside All that we can do is let them be Learn to love each other for the world to see I feel safe without you I feel safe when I'm with you I feel safe when I'm near you But I don't think that I need you You know what it is like when you are alone Walking in the dark trying to get home Every little thing that can make a sound Scares you half to death and you look around You cannot help but fear for your life What if somebody is there who has a knife But you know that n your heart you will be okay And that everything will let you live another day When you get inside you look around Thousands of little black dots are on the ground They go on with life without a care Eating all the food that they find lying there It is no matter what you do or say Nothing will make the ants ever go away The lesson that we learn is when the day is done The little tiny ants are the ones who have won I feel safe without you I feel safe when I'm with you I feel safe when I'm near you But I don't think that I need you
