Track Name: Outside In The Rain
(Abowd)

You started biting
Now in the mirror I can see your ghost
We started sliding
Oh outside in the rain

We went for hours
But the minute hand ain't moved at all
No more May flowers
Oh outside in the rain

Can't feel the right side of my face
Can't do that shit on the highway

You weren't quiet
But now you look my neighbor in the eye
Got sorta violent
Oh outside in the rain

You can take the girl out of Greenbow
But you can't get the green out of my clothes
Track Name: Mizel Mattmueller
(Schwartz)

Mizel Mattmueller is the ruler of the world
With a charming smile and a thousand three-piece suits

Mizel keeps a drawer with a hundred paper plans
But he don’t plan on reading a single one

Mizel might admit that maybe he’s not prepared
But he don’t give a shit and baby he ain’t scared
Cuz I can make a lady out of any old gal
Mizel says to anyone who comes to town
And we don’t need to work cuz I got people for that
We can drink the night away and meet some real cool cats
And Mizel never knows what’s going on in the news
But everybody loves him wants to be in his shoes

And I will be just fine
Cuz Mizel’s getting me mine
He’s the ruler of the world
Oh Mizel! Scream the girls

Mizel Mattmueller is the ruler of the world
And he forgets to check on his new wife

And the vice president is a lady of the night
And Mizel calls her in from time to time

Everybody knows that he’s the only one
But Mizel’s only thinking, “Baby make me cum!”
And everybody know that he’s a stand-up guy
But nobody can answer anyone who asks why
When Mizel get’s the question from another world ruler
With a wink and a nod says, “I’m a real straight shooter.”
His friends start laughing and kidding around
And everybody loves him when they see him round town

But Mizel’s on the take
Sinking lower everyday
And all the boys and girls
Are screaming, “Mattmueller for the world!”
Track Name: Down
(Abowd)

I’m falling
I’m falling down this morning
Yeah I’m falling endlessly
I’m down to the floor and
Down through the ceiling
Down

And I’m on my breeze

I’m falling
I’m falling around the raindrops
Yeah I’m falling
Can’t you see me
Down through the wind and
Down through the water
Down

I’m on my breeze
Don’t you make a sound (2x)
Down

I’m on my breeze
Don’t you make a sound (1x)
Down

I’m falling
I’m falling through cold and empty
As I’m falling only in my
Solitary warmth, will you now find me

I’m on my breeze
Don’t you make a sound (2x)
Down

They’ll call my name
All along the riverside
Oh I’m on my breeze
Track Name: Miss Mary Winston
(Schwartz)

Miss Mary Winston why you leaving town?
I run in circles trying to track you down
I don’t know why it took so long to say
That I want you in my life so please come back this way

On Monday morning our Miss Mary will wake
You know she always rises early don’t stay up too late
And I’m awful slow to follow cuz I played the midnight show
But come Tuesday afternoon, girl, I’ll be ready to go

Miss Mary Winston why you leaving town?
I run in circles trying to track you down
I don’t know why it took so long to say
That I want you in my life so please come back this way
Miss Mary Winston knows I ain’t got no disease
But she runs from me like water through the Mississippi
Yet whenever we’re together we gon have a good time
So why we asking questions girl
And, damn, you’re fine

Miss Mary Winston why you leaving town?
I run in circles trying to track you down
I don’t know why it took so long to say
That I love you want you back now each and every day

Miss Mary Winston why you leaving town?
My wheels are turning trying to track you down
I don’t know why it took so long to say
That I love you more and more each and every day
Miss Mary
Track Name: Un Ananas
(Abowd)

Call me a safe
And you'll be the dial
I’m seven hundred pounds of steel with cinnamon inside
Call me unsocialized
Call me unbearable
Call me the hell you want
As long as you don't call at all

Call me a vein
And you'll be the cut
Plasma stream TV, so quips some antibody slut
Call me uneven, go head
Call me unpopular
Call me the hell you want
As long as you don't call at all

Call me a ghost
But you’re a white sheet
You wrap yourself around my neck and cry out ‘trick or treat’
Call me uncouth, go head
Call me unsanitary
Me, the hell you want
As long as you don’t call at all

Call me afraid
If you're fear itself
Then while you're here you might as well lay claim to Winterfell
Call me unstable, go head
Call me un ananas
Call me the hell you want
As long as you don't call at all
Track Name: Thank You Mr Paper
(Schwartz)

Upstairs in the middle of my room
Lies a scrap of paper that you could consume
If you had to

Though I doubt that you picture it that way
Just a packet of instructions that you will not save
Though they helped you

Don’t give no thanks don’t say no word
Throw the paper away now with its duty served

And don’t say thank you
Mr. Paper, meet my friend
The garbage disposal service
He’ll take you away

Out back in my old playing yard
Lies a trinket that I would discard
If not for Mommy

But is is better that it’s here now?
Does it keep the same meaning all through the years?
I’m so forgetful

Don’t give no thanks don’t say no word
Won’t throw the trinket away now though its duty served

And don’t say thank you
Mr. Paper, meet my friend
The garbage disposal service
He’ll take you away

Thank you Mr. Paper, meet my friend
The garbage disposal service
He comes every Tuesday to my house
Then he goes where I won’t follow, no
Way down the road
To a dump I will never see
Track Name: The Morning After
(Abowd)

Day light, the foyer
Shot glass of risque
We can't be lovers the morning after if you send me along

Can't be more than part time
Hence this early start time
We can't be lovers the morning after if you send me along

Meanwhile, out in the alley
There was a stranger who caught my ice cream

We'll get up on that staircase
You'll make me stare, face
We can't be lovers the morning after if you send me along

See this armchair and raise it
Now turn round and face it
We can't be lovers the morning after if you send me along

While your bedsheets are hanging
We're out back, swinging
We can't be lovers the morning after if you send me along
Don't you send me along
Track Name: For My Big Sis
(Abowd)

Looking up
Two birds are making for the morning sky
But I’ve been looking up to one of them for life

So before you fly away
I just have to say
I hope I never see the end of that bright smile

You two will find a way
Because it’s clear today
That there’s no better pair of flying mates alive

As you both take off together
Spread your wings for warmer weather
Fly
Though we’ll miss our friend around here
Well I’m sure we’ll see you soon, dear
Fly

Looking up
Two birds are making for the morning sky
But don’t forget to come back home to perch sometime

The road 300 miles
But less as the birdy flies
And I can’t wait till you emerge from those white clouds

Until then I wish you well
Your little bro can tell
The two of you’ll be smiling wing in wing for life

As you fly so high together
Still swear I see your bright bright feather
Fly
The future is as blue and open
As you two lovebirds are hoping
Fly

By the way, I know that I don’t get a vote but
Please don’t move to North Dakota
Fly
Track Name: Love Librarian
(Schwartz, Lindsay Schwartz)


I see you standing there beside the stacks
I found the right call number but you stop me in my tracks
Looking through your glasses at the writing on the spine
And I knew we’d have to find a little quiet time

Now I see the book I need and it’s on the top shelf
You get it down for me asking, “anything else?”
When we’re at circulation and I’m checking it out
Do you remember that one thing that you were asking about?

Love, love, love librarian
Got an overdue fine on my heart
Love, love, love librarian
You introduced me to Rousseau and Descartes

Now I know that you’re not trying but it’s awfully mean
When you’re not behind the desk I use the checkout machine
We’re past the introduction and in the development
But I wanna reach the climax before our book gets lent

Come on baby why you hatin’?
There ain’t nobody behind me waitin’
I couldn’t be more plain in statin’ that you’re my
Love, love, love librarian
Got an overdue fine on my heart
Love, love, love librarian
Our story ended before it could start

I just want to be kissing but that Dewey Decimal System
Doesn’t have a section just for romance
I wanna scream and shout and show you what I’m all about
But you’re just alphabetizing in Finance
So come on baby
(Baby can I check you out?)

Come on baby why you hatin’?
There ain’t nobody behind me waitin’
I couldn’t be more plain in statin’ that you’re my

Love, love, love librarian
Got an overdue fine on my heart
Love, love, love librarian
I wanna lay you right down on your cart
Forget the movies
Got an overdue fine on my heart!
Track Name: When You're Riding
(Abowd, Mike Spam WIlde)

When you’re riding

On your toes you better know to play that
When you’re down you never have to say that
Gonna rise and fall like the Baltimore Sun

When you’re riding

Never learned to stay up at the mission
Sure the dog can make a nice addition
Gonna twist and shout like a Beatle begun

When you’re riding
Track Name: Sleeping (Like When I'm Next To You)
(Schwartz)

I’m so damn tired
That I wanna sleep for a million hours
I’m so damn tired
That I wanna sleep, sleep, sleep

Television screens and couches for two
Sitting upright driving my Subaru
These are the things that get in my way
Of sleeping, sleeping, sleeping
Like when I’m next to you

I’m so damn tired
That I wanna sleep for a million hours
I’m so damn tired
That I wanna sleep, sleep, sleep
Television screens and couches for two
Sitting upright driving my Subaru
These are the things that get in my way
Of sleeping, sleeping, sleeping

I wake up and stare at my wall
Wondering how I got to sleeping at all
I don’t know if you care, I don’t know if you knew
But I wonder if I could have slept next to you

Television screens and couches for two
Sitting upright driving my Subaru
These are the things that get in my way
Of sleeping, sleeping, sleeping
Of sleeping, sleeping, sleeping
Of sleeping, sleeping, sleeping
Like when I’m next to you
