Track Name: Murphy's Law
In a land so far away, there lived a little baby girl named May
Who dreamed of a wedding so exuberant and entertaining
And in a land not far from there, a baby boy with jet black hair
Whose name was Ray, he loved to play all day in the sun light
Who knew back then that they would meet each other in the middle of a busy street
May thought she felt her heart skip a beat (now isn’t that cute, but listen)
She gave her name and stuck out her hand, Ray shook it like a perfect gentleman
And that was when a guy named Clay came up to Ray and kissed him on the mouth cuz

Ray is gay. That’s just the way life is sometimes you
Gotta accept that at some point all you plans will get wrecked so
Just chill out. There’s no point in planning life out
If you’re screwed before you’re due just let life do what it wants with you

Back in high school there was a guy, who, above all things, loved pie
He’d have it everyday much to the dismay of his mother and his father
He loved apple, pumpkin, berries blue, cream, custard, key lime too
Banoffee, strawberry, and don’t forget the rhubarb
Who knew at that point he would get, a most ironic ailment
It came one day at the doctors office, if he knew he’d probably want to stop this
But the damage was already done. Mom and dad just looked at their son
The days of pie would have to die because their son developed

Diabetes. Type 2 specifically.
Sometimes you gotta expect that at some point your body will get wrecked by
A horrible disease caused by something that used to
Ease the passage of a horrid day, well goodbye fun. Hello misery

And I know that this song is kinda dark, but hey.
If I don’t address this epic mess of the common naivete
People will go around dreaming wholesome dreams of lives that they wish to have
Well wake up Sally, grow up Johnny lower middle class ain’t that bad!
I’m not saying that the grass isn’t greener on the other side
But it’s kinda hard to cross over when the reality is that life
Will screw you over more times than women, men, and the government combined
So why would you even try?

Well there’s this girl that I kinda like. A pretty girl who’s really bright.
She’ll laugh at me, tell me I’m funny. Maybe rest her head on my arm.
And I really want to make it known, how I feel when I’m alone.
How I think of her, does she think of me? Is this getting creepy?
But I know you know what I mean. I mean romantically.
Is it even a possibility? Can it be what I want?
Forget it I’ll just go up and ask. Make a total complete ass of myself
I don’t care I just wanna hear what her answer will be.

She thought that I was gay. Well I guess that would explain
Why she never minded at all when I saw her in her underwear while shopping at the mall right
After we just got through watching Sex in the City 2
I guess I should’ve known right there that with this girl, I’d be going nowhere
Track Name: Mosuck
So you wanna hear a story, well I’ve got one for you
Just remember my words, and whatever you do
Never fall in love it’s a waste of time
Forget what you seen in movies
Forget what you read in books
Relationships are filled with lies and dirty looks
They’d rather see you dead before they see you smile

I’m not saying that it’s all just a waste of time
But I’d be lying if I didn’t say it was a grind
Oh, it’s a crime, yeah!

Perhaps you think that you’re different cuz you’re like nobody else
Well let me tell you something your life will become Hell
As soon as you agree to that misery
The honeymooning will last all of maybe three days
And after that you’ll regret the choice that you made
I’m amazed that everyone still tries at all

I’m not saying that it’s all just a waste of time
But I’d be lying if I didn’t say it was a grind
Oh, it’s a crime, yeah!

Trust me, you’ll make all the same mistakes that we’ve all made before
Then finally you’ll see why love is such a chore
Just hear me when I say that it ain’t worth your time
But you won’t listen to me, you gotta screw up on your own
So when you do just all me up. I already know
I’ll meet you at the bar later on tonight.

Then we’ll drink until we pass out on the floor
And hit on anything that walks in through the door
Track Name: Anthem of the Broke and Tired
You know I meant it when I said I didn’t want you in my life~
And though you promised you would leave, I can’t believe just how naïve I was that night
You showed up again at my door at 4 am in the clothes you wore the eve before
And asked for me to take you back, to ignore the sins of our torrid past. Just how long do you think that would last?

Hell No!

There was a reason for the thing I said to cut you that deeply last night~
I’d never wanna see you cry. Indeed, instead I’d rather die than see the tears in your eyes
But how can I get through to you? To let you see, we’re really though. We’re done~
I’m sick and tired of your schtick. It gets old really, really quick, I know! Just leave me alone!

Hell No!

I hope you see what I’m getting at. A relationship shouldn’t be tit for tat~
I promise you’ll find someone else. A better guy, in and of himself, who will treat you right
Just please go and leave me alone. You’ve worn me right down to the bone at last~
I won’t be held responsible for all the hell you put me through just get out of my life! And to answer one more time:

Hell no!

Hey there little Miss Cutie Pie, I noticed you back there when you walked by
And I gotta admit that my voice just quit, couldn't come up with any thing real quick
And so, I wrote this song for you

Hey there little Miss Cutie Pie, just wanted you to know that you caught my eye
But we'll probably never talk cuz I'm too shy. I'll never let out what I feel inside
Unless I sing this song for you

And though I know that we won't end up together I
Can't help but fantasize about your beautiful brown eyes
There's nothing wrong with a little bit of dreaming, I mean that I'll
Keep you on my mind; from now until the end of time

Hey there little Miss Cutie Pie, you're wearing a perfume that I kinda like.
It reminds me of the simpler times, when the air was filled with a playful rhyme
And I think that it suit you just fine

Hey there little Miss Cutie Pie, are you waiting for a single guy
Who's simple and sweet and can kinda sing? If so then I think I've got just the thing
Why don't we go and leave all of this behind?

And though I know that we won't end up together I
Can't help but fantasize about your beautiful blue eyes
There's nothing wrong with a little bit of dreaming, I mean that I'll
Keep you on my mind; from now until the end of time

Hey there little Miss Cutie Pie, I noticed you back there when you walked by
And I gotta admit that my voice just quit, couldn't come up with any thing real quick
And so, I wrote this song for you
