Track Name: Gold Friends
In a couple days
I'll be going out again for coffee with a friend of mine
A good friend of mine
And we would be friends
All the way through high school but now look at how our friendship's grown
We're a hundred years old now

Now we're growing old
Looking back on all the years we've spent together
Track Name: Rock-a-De-Rock
Rock-a-de-rock

Rock-a-de-rock

Rock-a-de-rock
Rock-a-de-rock
Rock-a-de-rock

Rock-a-de-rock

Rock-a-de-rock

Rock-a-de-rock
Rock-a-de-rock
Rock-a-de-ro-o-o-o-o-ck

And the rocking goes on forever
It didn't stop
Until the end of the world!
Track Name: Ancient Writings
Ancient writings
Written on a page
Enclosed in a book
In the golden age

Ancient writings
And how can this be?
But they're waiting for you
And they'll rewrite history

In the darkness
All through the night
Someone is writing
By the candlelight

What are they writing?
And what was foretold?
But the people they're writing to
Are negative two thousand years old
Track Name: Medieval Sword
In the year 900
I took a medieval sword
And slashed a hole right through the tortured sky

And from the blackness
Came a man
Unborn from the wretched ones
Track Name: Cool Glass
Now and then
We'll get together again
You're my fair weather friend
I always think of you

You gave me so many years
And I'll cherish them all
Track Name: Christmas Surprise
Late night
At the office again
To many hours behind a computer screen
Come home
Kids are in bed
What's this waiting on the mantlepiece?

Christmas
Surprise
For me
Christmas surprise
And you're the greatest, honey

Settle in
Lights down low
Just in time as it begins to snow
Track Name: Christopher Mullins
I went down to Boston
I went to Jamaica Plain
I met myself a cat
Her name was Christopher Mullins

Christopher Mullins
You're a heck of a cat
You know where it's at
And you play in the flowers
Your mystical powers
And all of your friends
Will be with you till the end
Track Name: Hard Times On Easy Street
My car is in the shop
My mind has been replaced
When will I get it back?
How do I make my case?
Somebody's on the phone
But I can't bring it to my face
And it's
Hard times on easy street
Hard times on easy street
Track Name: Different Worlds
You and I come from different worlds
But we've got to face the zombies
I'm talking to you

Sticking together
Friends forever

You and I
You and I
You and I
Come from different worlds
Track Name: Space Loneliness
Making coffee for me
Conserving oxygen for me
I'll be sure to use it well

But there is no moon without you
There's only stars and the vast expanse
Of empty space between

I'm so alone without you
I'm so alone on this cold desolate rocket ship without you

I'm so alone without you
I'm so alone on this cold desolate rocket ship without you
Track Name: Out of Control
My baby's out of control
She calls me on the phone
She calls me a hundred times

I pick up the phone so she'll leave me alone
But then the phone rings
But I already picked it up
And she calls my name
And I go into a trance

My baby's out of control
My baby's out of control
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa
Track Name: German Chocolate Cake
German chocolate cake
On my plate, stay up late
Fall asleep in front of the T.V.
Watching a documentary

Staying up late
Eating chocolate cake
That was my mistake
Track Name: Balloon Advent
In the morning I step outside
I look at balloons in the forlorn skies
And I cant help but think about balloons
And where they're going to go

In the evening, when no one's around
I fold all my socks and I write a few songs
When I write them, I burn like a pyre
Then I think about balloons fir a while
Track Name: Christopher Mullins Reprise
I went down to Boston
I went to Jamaica Plain
I met myself a cat
Her name was Christopher Mullins

Christopher Mullins
You're a heck of a cat
You know where it's at
And you play in the flowers
Your mystical powers
And all of your friends
Will be with you till the end
