Track Name: What Do The People Want
What Do The People Want
Say goodbye to home
we're out here all alone
we're starting over
it's year zero
where the nights go on and on

I dreamt of a new kind of town
our mayor in her wedding gown
we call out the M's in the dictionary
but they're not gonna save us now

What do the people want?
The people don't know what they want

Activate this space
with the remaining human race
we stake our claim in a cemetery that's surrounded by your face

Agree to disagree
on the Q's you hurl at me
as top men search for sanctuary
we're bitching about peace

What do the people want?
The people don't know what they want
They're waving backwards to Massachusetts
trying to win the 'World's Best Haunt'©

What do the people want?
The people don't know what they want
They're telling jokes in the ossuary
but the laughs are weak and gaunt

What do the people want?
The people don't know what they want
What do the people want?
The people don't know what they want
What do the people want?
The people don't know what they want
The people don't know what they want
The people don't know what they want
The people don't know what they want
The people don't know what they want
The people don't know what they want
The people don't know what they want
Track Name: We Have The Perimeter Surrounded
We Have The Perimeter Surrounded

real good
major
plotlines
coasting
building
danger
rescue
homelife
every single thing that I could think of
we have the perimeter surrounded

woody
guthrie
once had
a weird dream
he fronted
a punk band
called Exed Out
they were amazing
every single thing that I could think of
we have the perimeter surrounded

Twister!
Ouija!
Fault lines
freebies!
Stag films
my maps
bookmarks
& adoration
every single thing that I could think of
we have the perimeter surrounded


you see, we were part of the light brigade
dumping wattage on hate parades
getting dusked in the deep
the crew was me and marty and carol too
we didn't do what they told us to
which was part of the deal
but now, when I think back on those days
I can't believe we behaved that way
you know we could've been killed
love, l-o-v-e-y-o-u
could maybe do what it used to do
you wanna give it a chance?
