Track Name: Winners
Imagine what life would be like
If we found out it was real
Would horses grow up to be unicorns
And centaurs grow out from under our legs
Would Hercules himself come down the mount
And laugh at us all day

Imagine what life would be like
If we found out it was here
Would people come from all around to see us
And stay much longer than you feared
Or would they keep on moving on
To find a better here than here

Imagine what life would be like
If we found out it was a game
Played with pieces luck and skill
Deterministic free will
Oh would oh could we be winners
Or have we already won
Or have we already won
Track Name: Party Balloons
We've got streamers
And party balloons
The relay races
Are starting soon

There's spring in the air
There's spring in my hair
I'm gonna spike it up
For this affair

They wheeled me around in shopping carts
And we laughed at every dead end
They wheeled me around in shopping carts
And we laughed at every dead end
Oh yes we laughed at every dead end

Come on over
And we'll hold our breath
And only exhale
As we approach death

We'll say hello
As we open our mouths
And we'll close them again
To recite our vows
Track Name: Be Somebody
I wanna be somebody
So when I'm alone
There will
Be somebody there

We walk around the world and
Plead our case to
Everyone
Sometimes it is fun

I wanna be somebody
So when I'm alone
There will
Be somebody there
Track Name: Dig Word
Everyday I say nothing
And believe every word
Everyday I say nothing
And believe every word

Word

Everybody's got their own
Underground to dig
Everybody's got their own
Underground to dig

Dig

Raping the midwest
Nine to five
Stealing their haircuts
And wasting my time

Dig

Word

And to all you
Anti-synthetics
You were man-made too
You were man-made too

Dig

Word
Track Name: Fragments
Callous and boneless your muscles didn't know where to begin
When you tried to save the world from all the people that you believed in

Dominos in rows fell in lines at your touch
Fragments are the only forms that I trust

Pregnant with visions waiting to rebirth all mankind
To some the future is fast forward to others it is rewind

Straight and narrow is not the path ahead of us
But you don't have to fall just to gain my trust
Track Name: You Are Not Special
Everywhere I go
I meet the same kid
Staring at a laundromat
Wishing it was him

At the parade
He just talks
Plans his escapes
As the marchers walk

Hold your last
Regret to the wind
If it blows away
You won't regret a thing

If it returns
Or the wind does die
Then

Dance like dancers
On their last day
Get the moves right
Get it right

Free
yourself
from the idea
that you
are special
Track Name: I Love You
There is only one more breath
That I will take
The same one that I started after
I saw your face
Saw your face

The world is what it wants to be
And I am here
Trying to make sense of it
Before I disappear
Before I disappear
Track Name: Kids
There isn't much to do
And there isn't much to say
And there isn't much to sing
But I can't finish anything
No I can't finish anything
No I can't finish anything

We means yes in French
And you are second best
And I am a person in first
They is just a collection of us
Yes they is just a collection of us
Yes they is just a collection of us

Kids
They grow up
And then
Get clever and friends
And spend
The rest of their lives trying to be
Simple again
Track Name: The Revolution
All I hear are excuses and complaints
About suicide nooses shooting blanks
And all I see are people standing still
On the outdoor sides of window sills

The revolution has started again
It's all talk and a way to make friends

The revolution has started again
It's all talk and a way to make friends

Holy smokes I think I did it again
I brought the beginning closer to the end
And for my next feat of awesome bravery
I'll rid the world of all we cannot see

The revolution has started again
It's all talk and a way to make friends

The revolution has started again
It's all talk and a way to make friends

The revolution has started again
It's all talk and a way to make friends
Track Name: Watch Each Other
All y'all watch each other
And say it's worthwhile
All y'all watch each other
And say it's worthwhile

But I don't know what could be much worse
Than being dead and driving the hearse
No don't know what could be much worse
Than being dead and driving the hearse

But all y'all watch each
And say it's worthwhile
All y'all watch each other
And say it's worthwhile

But I don't know what could be much worse
Than being dead and driving the hearse
No don't know what could be much worse
Than being dead and driving the hearse
Track Name: Turn Around Leaders
Turn around leaders
And lead us from the crowd
Track Name: About Being Alive
There's been a lot of bad feelings
About life
About being alive
