Track Name: It's Springtime In My Heart
all the pretty girls are waiting outside
for the boys to come in their fresh clean ties, but
look at me, I am locked up tight
I will be your guide through the lonesome night and
as we go, you will see that you're in for a treat,
for a show, for a whole new way to be a
a freedom fighter and the token outsider
the angry letter writer, broken cigarette lighter

the music is calling your name, won't you be there tonight
we're moving to a whole new world where the sky is so bright

my name is Gaius Jeepers and it's very nice to meet you
I am right beside, I'll hold your hand
we will take it step by step, I'll clothe you and I'll feed you
floating right along till we see land

flowers in bloom and the grass is growing
the kids are playing and the mama is sewing
the dawn has broken, God has spoken but
we're still here, and inside it's snowing
I'm pretty comfortable, I feel no pain
but the silence is enough to drive anyone insane, so
flip the switch, it starts to glow
now grab your microphone, 'cause here we go

the music is calling your name, won't you be there tonight
we're moving to a whole new world where the sky is so bright

my name is Gaius Jeepers and it's very nice to meet you
I'm your new best friend, I'm your brother
I'm the only one that you can trust with all your secrets
we will learn to love one another

tell me, tell me, can you smell smoke
tell me, tell me, can you feel the growth

the music is calling your name (x4)

I don't charge admission, I just want your loving
we are in remission, we're just on vacation
we're just on vacation
tonight
Track Name: Voices In My Head
can you wait for me to
find myself
can you find a way to
heal thyself
and I listen to these
these voices in my head

but all they say is make it louder
don't have to wonder why
grows all around me like a flower
don't have to wonder why

my muse comes and goes and
today it's here at last
I asked those voices questions
but they just stood and laughed

and all they say is make it louder
don't have to wonder why
grows all around me like a flower
don't have to wonder why
Track Name: Goober Gibson
Tommy wasn't made for this, he has his father's genes
he was valedictorian
till he stepped out on the scene
he rolled up to his girlfriend's in his fucking corduroys
he never saw it coming, she was hanging with her boys
he got blasted, blasted
now he's dancing to Nirvana with a crawfish and his mama
and he broke out in hives and he can't believe his eyes
and he wonders if there's every gonna be an end in site
brother

oh, say it again with me
we're in the ecstasy of our lives
oh, see how your life could be
here in the ecstasy of our lives

the time is now, the time is now, grab it while you can
every man that knows his god is in the frying pan
so jump into the fire, 'cause it's only a matter of time
we'll give you a break and a chance to get baked
so there it is, where do I sign
we'll have a manager and we'll have a chauffeur
we'll be in magazines with Tommy's father's genes
and never ever doubt it son, never ever doubt it
Tommy wasn't sure at first, today he's all about it

oh, say it again with me
we're in the ecstasy of our lives
oh, see how your life could be
here in the ecstasy of our lives
Track Name: Shit, Boy
Saturday evening, it all went down
she wasn't breathing, no one made a sound
like I said then, it's not my fault
it went from dancing to aggravated assault

so screw you and your judgmental eyes
I know what you're after, I see through the lies
carry that weight, wherever I roam
got my pops, so I'm never going home
Track Name: Going Nowhere
I have often heard be all you can be
I have often heard always do your best
just a spoken word pushing you forward
just a broken word, you have failed the test
I'm so sorry you're oh so demanding
I'm just passing through

'cause I'm going nowhere
I'll see that day
'cause I'm going nowhere, baby
and I intend to stay

like a motorboat that's run out of gas
but now I'm taking charge, I've got a plan in mind
are you coming too? pack up all your things
time to start anew, you never know what you'll find
kiss your friends goodbye, they'll never know we're gone
I'm just passing through

'cause I'm going nowhere
I know the way
'cause I'm going nowhere, baby
and I intend to stay
