Track Name: A Good Life
I'll take issue only if you challenge me
If you say I can't, I'll try to- I've got self-esteem
I would have made a great one were I born a king
And I'd give one hell of a speech were someone listening

I got a good life in the corner of my eye
I got a good life I could start at any time
I got a good life, I just keep it in the trunk
I got a good life, sealed in plastic so it doesn't get messed up

Slowly surely I can repeat all I've done
With subtle variations till the darkness comes
To engulf me for eternity and set me free
So you see, there's not a single thing that will be hard to leave

Except for my good life in the corner of my mind
I got a good life I could start at any time
I got a good life in a safe box at the bank
I got a good life under lock & key so I won't make any mistakes

Slowly surely I shall repeat all I've done
Slowly surely watch me repeat all I've done

I got a good life on layaway
Package deal they say, comes with a special prize
You get house/kid/wife, don't you want
House/kid/wife, now don't you want a good life?

I got a good life in the corner of my eye
I got a good life I could start at any time
I got a good life, I just keep it in the trunk
I got a good life, sealed in plastic so it doesn't get messed up
Track Name: Carnival Kelly
I ain't got money, but my credit limit was just increased, baby.
I got eleven bucks. I'll take you to the carnival, Kelly.
Follow me. I'll keep on spending money.
I'm on a broken income, but I've got zero interest for 78 weeks, baby.
My bank account's cleaned out; I'm still gonna use my credit cards, clearly.
Whatcha need? I'll keep on spending money.
But I'm not gonna get no job just to impress you, baby. The government pays me for not working
And saying that I'm looking for what I'm absolutely not looking for…how dumb do I look?
Don't answer that. I'll keep on spending money.
Track Name: Keep the Moon Weird
went to the moon with a kangaroo, wouldn't you know we got marooned?
marooned on the moon w/ a BLUE KANGAROO
what else could i do but croon a tune to you? and the chorus went

keep the moon weird keep the moon weird
keep the moon weird keep the moon weird
keep the moon weird keep the moon weird
keep the moon weird keep the moon weird

took in a show at the crater theater, ordered up some drinks from the martian waiter
the waiter turned into a FROSTY ROOT BEER
then kangaroo said let's get out of here, and the root beer said

keep the moon weird keep the moon weird
keep the moon weird keep the moon weird
keep the moon weird keep the moon weird
keep the moon weird keep the moon weird

took my space car to the dealership ship, but the robogreasemonkey refused to fix it
he said the car resembled his EX-WIFE PAM
and before i knew i blurted out well i'll be damned, and i was

but i kept the moon weird kept the moon weird
keep the moon weird keep the moon weird
keep the moon weird keep the moon weird
keep the moon weird keep the moon weird
Track Name: Goferit
It's fine, go for it, I'm recusing myself
I don't know why you wanna be a copycat
I don't see why it's always gotta be like that
Or why you keep asking me what's going on with Abby
(Now that I wanna be with her, she doesn't wanna be with me)

It's fine, go for it, you decide for yourself
I don't need no wing man waiting in the wings
To swoop in and make a mockery of everything
Just, please, stop asking me what happened with Abby
(She won my heart and then immediately set me free)

But I'm fine, so go for it
It's fine, go for it

Last night at the Pub, I got hip-hop-ambushed
I wished I could have pushed him off the stage
I figured somebody'd have my back, but you were already making your play
There was a crust punk bum rush, everything turned your way
So what else could I say but, "It's fine, go for it?"
It's fine, go for it

Last night at the Pub, I got hip-hop-ambushed
I probably should've punched him in the face
Except that nobody had my back; meanwhile, you were already making your play
I got caught up in the crust punk bum rush
Everything turned your way
You asked me for my blessing, but you knew what I was gonna say

You already knew what I was gonna say
You already knew what I had to say
That's right, you knew what I was gonna say

You already knew what I was gonna say (it's fine, go for it) 4x
No
