You smile so wide and wicked You're easy to fall for But you're nobody's pixie dream girl And neither am I Your laughter comes easy You present yourself bare But like all quickly built family You leave, you leave, you leave I'm not your boyfriend I am your sister Or maybe I'm just a friend Or I'm not that either Cuz you left me by myself Paranoid and frightened But we paint things and we sing things, silly things So I'll let it slide I presume to know you, really So it's no surprise How you gaze right through me, right past me I'm a stand-in for another guy And maybe that's okay Because for now You giggle so wildly And run naked through the house

Here's a story that might sound crazy but it's all true, maybe, so listen, baby He cheated on her with a second lady so they ditched the bastard, got together after Then in just two weeks Molly fell in deep, said “I'm yours to keep” But Peggy soon lost sleep she began to freak, said she got cold feet All's I know is that they had a fight Peggy left that night, and Molly saw the Light Molly called her friends but they were all Stephen’s; they wouldn't make amends So she flew a rocketship straight into the sun She got out the other side and shot creation from her gun She found the interstellar mother Mary nun and showed her a damn good time when she got inside and ai yai yai yai She flew to the Twelfth Planet of Exceeding Bliss then she swallowed a fistful of radiant photons “What did you do?” “I-i-i-i see the universe now I see what I'm missing, and it's not a person, nah-ah I-i-i-i see the universe now but it's not what I'm after, and I'm coming down” There's godrays stabbing in her eyes but She has not quit her dumb Odyssey cuz she thinks There's a point to all the pain and we don't understand anymore “I'll live for pleasure I'll just burn hotter I'll dig my own grave fast and then we'll have a blast!”

The 101 is mucho fun We’re basking in the Cali Sun The 118 is like a dream I think it’s more than just a fling You know the 10 is hot as sin It’s exactly how I like my men And the 5, well, what a ride! I’d like to see him on the side I’m an Angelino girl And I’ve got to love the road I’m an Angelino girl And I will die upon the freeway Freeway The sweet 14 is just the cream I worship her like she’s my queen The 405 is sanctified Ever holy, full of life I could 210 until the end I think it is my closest friend But the PCH was my first date So maybe that one is my fate I’m an Angelino girl And I’ve got to love the road I’m an Angelino girl And I will die upon the freeway Freeway x2 Freeway Freeway Yeah

Sir Perceval 03:41
He’d kill to get himself a job To grease his elbows up To wear his fingers down To his honest bones He’d die to get himself a name To feel important once To ease his aching heart From staunch loneliness He sees his future in the distant lands He’s got a plan to ford past every river Oh, Sir Perceval, if you ever get a moment to breathe Close your eyes, just go to sleep If I could be with you, I would be When honeyed words drip from your lips I can’t hear you when you speak softly Oh my, what a dreamy guy And yet, for all that he has planned For every promise made For all the debt he’s built He still drags his feet He says he hasn’t given up He hasn’t had it fair He hasn’t made the sin yet of Standing still too long He sees our kingdom in the distant land He’s got a plan to conquer every mountain Oh, Sir Perceval, if you ever get a moment to rest Close your eyes, if you think it best If I could be with you, I would be When honeyed words drip from your lips I can’t hear you when you speak softly Oh my, what a dreamy guy Fa la la He sees our kingdom in the distant land He’s got a plan to conquer every mountain Oh, Sir Perceval, if you ever get a moment to breathe Close your eyes, and go to sleep Close your eyes, and go to sleep Close your eyes, and go to sleep

Doctor Ghost 04:04
As I was down in the old Devil’s Punchbowl I met me a world-weary ghost He said that he’d once been a doctor A sawbones of no good repute Sunset-colored nectarines grew In the grove that fateful day Her white-lace dress covered in dust The smile long gone from her face The doctor met a wandering girl Who’d escaped so to live out her life In return for her stories, he healed up her scars And he asked if she might be his wife The owls’ gold eyes glowed in the night And they watched as blood soiled his coat His bluff had been called, he'd gambled it all Love, life, and death do us part She had been taken, he had been dead His practice provided no cure So, he drank blood whiskey with the Devil Thereafter he must here linger I asked what became of the girl whom he loved Smiling sadly, he shot me a wink Then he glanced at the sun sinking into the earth And disappeared without saying a thing
