Track Name: She Took The Money
She took the money
She took the money
She took the money and left everybody
She took the money
She took the money
She took the money and left every
One
behind
She left them all behind
She took a Cadillac
She's never coming back to this town again

Oh, I remember her
And all the things that she used to say
Will she ever come back to this town to stay?

She took the money
She took the money
She took the money and left everybody
She took the money
She took the money
She took the money and left everyone
Track Name: Welcome Home
Welcome home
You've been out on the street
On a cold winter's night
But everything's right
Now that you're home
Now that you're home

Welcome home
You can make up a cup of
Coffe for yourself
It's good for your health
Have a few cookies, you're home
Track Name: The Ballad of the Unstoppable Friends
No one's going to go it alone
We're going to stick together
Depend on one another
You can use all of my stuff
And even if there's hundreds of them
That wouldn't be enough
Even if they total our cars
They could never break is up
Track Name: Acquaintances
Acquaintances
Acquaintances
Cordial toward one another
Acquaintances passing each other
In the night
Track Name: The Bard
Many years ago there was an old king
Who lived upon a hill, alone with his crowns
Through the black wood
Through the dark mist

There was a young bard who sought the old king
Set forth with his things, upon a great quest
Through the black wood
Through the dark mist
But he met his fate
Before he met the king
Before he reached the emerald castle
Before he reached the emerald gate

The ghost of the bard still wanders this way
To this very day, or so it's been told
In the black wood
In the dark mist
He'll help you on your way
He'll help you find the king
He'll help you find the emerald castle
He'll help you find the emerald gate
Track Name: New Friends
New friends
New friends
Playing the basketballs
Filling up buckets of ice in the hotel halls
Staying up till 2 in the morning making crank calls
New friends
New friends
Like a couple of books on the shelves
Together they're more than the sum of their collective selves
So much more
They hold shares of a company
Who never listed on the S&P
Because it's monetary value is essentially incalculable
New friends
New friends
Making plans for the afternoon
If they don't get together today, they're going to get together soon
Track Name: My Betrothed
That's the sound of my betrothed
Waking up from a dream
Handing me a bottle of cream for my tea
Isn't she lovely?
She's just how I remember her best
She's wearing the very same dress
She had some coffee and she beat me at chess
But I don't care
Cause she just woke up and she hasn't even done her hair
That's the sound of my betrothed
Waking up from a dream
Track Name: Supermarket
Everybody quit their jobs
Everybody's working at the supermarket
Everybody left their homes
Everybody's living at the supermarket, oh yeah
And all your friends are there
Dressed in fancy clothes
And wouldn't you know
Supermarket
Supermarket
Supermarket, ohyeah
Supermarket, ohyeah
Track Name: Silent Running
Millions of miles from whence we came
Through the rings of Saturn, and if we survive
The forest will always remain
If we're there to keep it alive

There'll be no one left to care about
There'll be no one left who can stop us now
I thought we'd never be found
But then one day they arrived

But I can't go back
To Earth
With them

No, I can't go back
To Earth
With them

I can't
Go back
Again
Track Name: You Take The Cake
If I'm away, and you think it unkind
Until we meet again, please don't let your heart break
Because where ever I go, I'll have you on my mind
Cause when it comes to friends of mine, you take the cake
You take the cake, and nobody could ever stop you
And if you ever feel like you're getting old
Just remember you'll never be to old to take the cake
Track Name: Fancy Town
Give my regards to Fancy Town
Near and dear to me
It was fancy town, unquestionably

Tell all the folks in Fancy Town
I fell into the sea
Fancy Town, you can split up my things
Track Name: The Anthem of the Unstoppable Friends
Nobody shot the unstoppable friends
That was their only weakness
And no one could figure it out
And the world was safe
For babies again
To live
And to laugh
And to love
And to be
The babies they wanted to be
Track Name: Starlight Mints
Let's go out for dinner followed by starlight mints
At a fancy restaurant
You can order whatever you want
And have starlight mints
Track Name: Vampires
Vampires
Staying out of the sun
If you get bit by a vampire
Then you'll become one
I know

Vampires
They could be anyone
They could be your next door neighbor for all they care
They don't care about you
They don't care about life

Don't give them the benefit of the doubt
Track Name: Ultra Cop
Somewhere in a fortress
There's a criminal master plan
But don't be afraid cause
There's an ancient man
Born from a star
A hand of justice from the dark
He will embark
To save us in time

Ultra Cop
We let you lead the way in this endeavor
Will you lead us forever?
Ultra Cop
It's amazing how your life can change in a minute
And if your heart is in it Then there'll always be an Ultra Cop
Track Name: Redgei
Redgei
How could I live without you
And there's just something about you
You know just how I feel

Redgei
I wouldn't want to live without you
And I will do the best that I can do
Track Name: We've Got A Ways To Go
We've got a ways to go
We've got a ways to go
Till you're back in my arms again
Till you're back in my arms again
Alright, alright
We'll be making everything right
Alright, alright
We'll be making everything right
We've got a ways to go
We've got a ways to go
Till you're back in my arms again
Till you're back in my arms again
