Track Name: Prelude
I should have loved my position in life, simple indeed, and obscure, but calm and serene. I should have died peacefully in the bosom of my family. Thought, doubtless, soon forgotten, I should have at least have been regretted as long as anyone remembered me. Instead of that, what picture amI going to draw? Let us not anticipate the sorrows of my life. I shall occupy my [listener] more than enough with this melancholy subject.
Track Name: Pepsi Queen
Here she come
that little Pepsi Queen

she's speeding all the time
she's got no need for naps
but she spits on coca-cola
and she spits on royal crown
she's a little royalty

here she come
that little Pepsi Queen

I don't know why

she lives on oxycodone
she lives on broken ribs
she's got giant little fists

here she come that little Pepsi Queen
I don't know why
Track Name: Oh Boy, Lichtenstein
Oh boy, Lictenstein
Your ben-days were square
when I saw you
with an iPhone
no one believes
in materials
since the cloud came
to our pockets

Oh boy, Lichtenstein

I'm streaming Tchaikovsky
while I'm standing
at the bus stop
I know everything
no kidding
I got an iPhone

Oh boy, Lichtenstein
Oh dear, Tchaikovsky

It's not a joke
it's really the it is
when you live in
a petrified forrest

Oh boy, Lichtenstein
the cloud took you away
Track Name: Mensa Pen
where's my Mensa commemorative pen?
it was here before you came here with him
what made you think you could come here with him?
he takes the first thing he sees
and you came to my house with him

he comes in like a thief in the night
he comes between your sheets
he takes the first thing he sees
he took my Mensa commemorative pen
i hadn't seen you in a week
when you came to my house with him

what made you think you could come here with him?
Track Name: Sylvia
I'm all alone in my room I'm wondering
the days go by, the nights slip by not slumbering
oh why must I feel so alone, Sylvia?
it's 'cause you take too many pills

oh why must I feel so alone, Sylvia?
it's cause you take too many pills

oh you and me could make make fun together
yeah you and me could have made some fun together
but, sylvia
oh, sylvia

oh you and me could have made fun together
yeah you and me could have made some fun together
oh, Sylvia
dear Sylvia
but Sylvia
you take too many
Track Name: la vie moderne
hey Manet
hey hey hey hey hey-hey
hey Manet
what did you say?
je suis le peintre de la vie moderne
baby, put up a fight
it doesn't matter if it's wrong or right
I'm the painter of modern life

hey Manet
hey hey hey hey-hey
hey Manet
well, what did you say?
I'll be your mirror and show you what
the things that you just can't see
I'll be your mirror show you what
things that you just can't see
it doesn't matter if it's wrong or right
i'm the painter of modern life

Track Name: I Wanna Be Sedate
I wake up early on a Saturday night
I think I need a constant in my life
yeah
'cause everything's fair and everything's right
when you've got a constant in your life
yeah
I think about getting myself a pet life everyone person i've ever met
'cause everything's fair and everything's right
when you've got a constant in your life
yeah
and it's getting old and i'm getting late
I think I finally want to be sedate
Track Name: Terminator of Hearts
we walked
with our food stamps
to the mini mart
we sold
all our movies
to make the rent
I was happy
so happy
with you

well they call you
and you are
the terma
terma
terminator of hearts

cruelty
oh cruelty
it took you away
took my baby
baby

to-day

why was I so cruel to you?
baby, I was wise to you.
but a broken heart is right twice a day
and a broken heart tells time
well they call you
and you are
the terma terma terminator of hearts
