W-2 01:01
1099 to ride, 1099 to ride The union boss says “baby don’t you know it’s a crime That they don’t pay you for doing emotional overtime” The IRS comes knocking right on cue Gotta fill out a W-2 just to talk to you, uh-huh 1099 to ride, 1099 to ride The neighborhood committee can’t get no traction So the lady up the street makes out a request for action Fill out form AD-1083 Wait 7–11 business days to talk to me, uh-huh

Hit the nail on the head Smash my trigger finger I get scared of the dark When I shoot out the lights Such a fool for attention Shut the door of the car Crush the tail of the dog All these lessons to learn Hope the grade’s on a curve Fell asleep in the classroom We live in a punk rock world, ooh We live in a punk rock world And fools die hard in a punk rock world Here’s my lesson to you Do with it what you will

Velodrome 01:51
Well I saw you looking out of a window In a cafe down by the velodrome They spelled your name wrong on the birth certificate You cried about it for the whole drive home And I saw you down at the demonstration But I couldn’t tell what it was about I spelled my name wrong on the declaration Couldn’t erase it so I crossed it out And didn’t it feel so good Didn’t it feel so good So I close my eyes and push all the air out Then I float up to the surface again I love the feeling of running in circles I am a slave to the curriculum Seems like everyone I know is in trouble Seems like everyone has nowhere to go The country lives on despite our frustration Built a vibrator from a radio Well I saw you looking into a window There’s a cool breeze at the top of my cage I check my radar, it’s all so exciting I’m losing contact but can’t disengage
4.
If you need me I’ll be there in a hurry If you need me I’ll be there on the phone It’s something that I’ll have to remember When I feel alone Yeah I love all of the people in my life It’s a thing I’m usually too shy to tell It’s something that I’ll have to remember When I feel like hell There’s always someone, I guess Who’s trying to do their best To say “I’m happy to see you” Seems like everyone’s in such a big hurry And there’s only so much one can give But pissing in the well that you drink from Is no way to live You can call it just what the doctor ordered You can call it anything at all Gonna throw a special little something Right over your wall There’s always someone, it’s true Who’s trying to do right by you ‘Cause to them, you’re important

100 Hrs 01:27
A hundred hours til I get to Salt Lake A hundred hours since I’ve seen my baby On the wrong side of a hundred hours, ah A hundred hours going out of my way A hundred hours and I’m going crazy On the wrong side of a hundred hours If it was up to me I’d find a way back to you But the company demands that I stick to the man’s plan So that’s what I’m gonna do
7.
A-B-C and 1-2-3 If you want my love you gotta run with me D-E-F and 4-5-6 Baby, moving on is how I get my kicks G-H-I and 7-8-9 Maybe I’ll feel better at the next state line Dennis Hopper in Easy Rider Jack Nicholson in Easy Rider Peter Fonda in Easy Rider Tell me who do you love
8.
She loves Riding right up to me And telling me that I’m her man ‘Cause she can She loves Riding right up to me And giving me a big ol’ kiss Just like this She loves me And ever since she told me I’ve been bang bang ba-bang ba-bang Shooting from the hip She loves Riding right up to me And putting on my ten gallon hat Just like that
9.
I don’t know how To turn it around How do I rescind Stayed up too late Didn’t feel great Slept in all weekend Bending over backwards so far but I Can’t make a circle despite how hard I try Over and over Over and over Over and over Getting in trouble Can’t turn it around Stranded on the wrong side of town
10.
No more chilaquiles at dawn No more nights in Galveston Well what’s done is done Bye-bye Texas, have a good one No more skinny dipping with Juan No more Topo Chico in the sun Well what’s done is done Bye-bye Texas, so long
11.
I saw you Standing there You’re so cool I got scared I am dying Early autumn In the air You’re so sweet And unaware I am dying
12.
My Bike 02:30
When I’m on my bike I can do the things I like When I’m on my bicycle It takes me down To the record store downtown When I’m on my bicycle When I’m on my bicycle When I’m on my bike Everyone can just take a hike When I’m on my bicycle Yeah I never fall And if I do it won’t hurt at all When I’m on my bicycle When I’m on my bicycle I don’t need much, if anything I think I’m happy, yes I really do Just riding around and listening

Sunkist 01:00
Sunkist I want this One wish I want this
14.
He’s on varsity Just 17 And she likes smoking grass And cutting class But he’s not in the band She’s not even in the band There’s no one in the band Did you need a hand? He sits next to me In history And she likes teenage love And Nabokov
15.
Texting you and that’s when my phone died Took a little tour of the front line We’re sucking the thumb Sucking the thumb The nurse with the curse says “baby’s got back” Lose grasp of the facts when you’re under attack This is my report from the frontier Long distance loser coming in clear
16.
Boys In Heat 01:16
Boys in heat don’t mind Waiting up just to waste your time Underneath the sun Boys in heat are out having fun Red alert When feelings hurt “Don’t waste my time” She said to Boys in heat don’t mind Waiting up just to waste your time Underneath the stars Boys in heat are out crashing cars
17.
Jazz Chorus 00:56
The jazz chorus is back The jazz chorus is back Don’t know when, I don’t know how All’s I know is the jazz chorus is back now
18.
Try to be on my side now Everyone is backing out Though I know you love a crowd I could really use you around Try to be on my side now I don’t wanna say it again It’s a cruel way to treat a friend To just turn tail and run from him Try to be on my side now Everyone is packing up There’s no way I could make this up There’s no way I could make this stop If it ever happened to you The first thing that I would do Would be to show my love for you I would show you my love is true Mmm I would show my love for you I would show you my love is true
19.
I spent the weekend in heaven In 1977 It felt like those days would never end When you were my Sharona Love was more than just a word Hit songs just wanted to be heard And one time I almost got to third When you were my Sharona The coke was clean and the highs were wild Life was a movie and I was a child I remember the way you smiled When you were my Sharona
20.
Maybe I 01:46
Maybe I have been chewing On it for too long Maybe I really shouldn’t Worry about this one And then it catches up with me Yeah I better watch my speed, ah Maybe I’m too distracted To know what’s good for me Maybe I’m just attracted To things that I shouldn’t be
21.
We imagined summer As a reason for what we had Retroactive bummer Upside down and still feeling sad Old enough to know better Young enough to know better Tell myself I’m better Drag my ass to class in a trance Write myself a letter Rip it up and wait for an answer Old enough to know by now Young enough to know by now Imagined I held your hand
22.
I step up to the plate Just itching to take a swing I can’t wait for the summer In love with the flavor of the week again Cherry cola was here to stay When I was born yesterday, oh yeah I step up to the sink Just itching to take a drink I can’t wait for the summer In love with the idea of the feeling
23.
Hanging out in the attic I’m not getting any better at it But I can still play the drum set And throw four to the floor And I won’t play the harmonica If you don’t play the melodica We can never get far enough Away away away from Are you ready for the summer Of your dreams, yeah This chord will be gone tomorrow Because it’s everyone’s to borrow But you can still be the star of My big autumn breakdown So clap your hands like you wanted to And the silence won’t bother you But a song won’t father you And your mother is already gone “I know folks who can get us pot” Said a friend who never said a lot “Sally forth and forget me not” Said somebody else “If we tear down Babylon Remember, we were only having fun” Said the boy with no towel on As he climbed out of a car

Steven's 01:19
What are you doing this weekend Do you wanna play guitar Always in our hearts Have a good time at Steven’s There’s always something shining through I’ll touch base with you I just called you back To see if you were leaving My stratosphere is quiet Without you
