Track Name: Cryptocurrency
I bought enough TV dinners
That I can get one free
I'll get more than that with the copy machine
At the library

Drinking O'Doul's every single night
That isn't a sin
I'm gonna buy a few thousand packs of Camels
And never breathe in

I found a loophole
I'm never gonna tell you how
I found a loophole

One of these days I'm gonna get high
And watch Last Year At Marienbad
In between the frame I will find the path
To the one true god

I will cash fake checks and store the money
In a safety deposit box
I will cross-reference all my contacts
And wait by the docks

I found a loophole
I'm never gonna tell you how
I found a loophole

I don't need any thanks
I am far, far too humble
I've got a plan to get us out of this jam
Five bucks a ticket to the robot rumble

Whenever the zombies decide to attack
I'll be outside with a shotgun
I have detailed city planning maps
All you'll have to do is run

I get kind of moody by twilight
No matter the place
And I know just how to fix it, he says
With a straight face

I found a loophole
I'm never gonna tell you why
I find these loopholes
Track Name: Rulli
Mom works in a big house
Long stairs leading up
I can't climb them on my own
Who-o-o-o-o-oa

Dad stays at home a lot
He's a poet and he knows it
And I'm sure we've got a shot
Who-o-o-o-o-oa

Larkspur
Or whatever it's called
Seems like a pretty nice place
But do people live here?

There are all these big tall trees
And call me crazy
But I don't think I could live in a tree
For very long

I hop in his Saturn, like the car
Not like a Dreamcast
And we cross into the trees
Who-o-o-o-o-oa

And we meet at Rulli's
I get a pastry or two
And I smile for both of you
I get a bottle of the fizzy drink
That tastes like orange
Not like Sunkist
But the orange taste like adults would like
And I feel so free
There's no way to see through me
And I'm even smiling
When Mom finally leaves
I can't climb those stairs on my own
On my own
Track Name: Hedgehog's Dilemma
I have my clearly defined
Walls of protection
And they shrink every hour
I spend in this procession

They are herding us like cattle
They are grooming us to be
Every single goddamned thing
That doesn't work for me

So I fall
And I want you to fall with me
Surely this uprising will
Set me free

And I know you never meant
To hurt me
But the worst pain comes from people who are
Ready to desert me

The light shines through the window
On the pink walls inside
And it makes a sickly glow
Like I crawled in here and died

I'll slink out to a grassy place
My eyes fixed on a tiny mushroom
I'll be gone in fifteen If I say
I vomited in the bathroom

So I lie
And I want you to lie with me
Surely this escape
Will set me free

And I know you never meant
To hurt me
But the worst pain comes from people who are
Ready to desert me
