Once Upon a Time – We Mattered Every Day It seems like they’re playing Games with your mind Feeling the pain of the Times Got no doubt it’s a sign Openly Blind No more time but just time Do something Every Way It seems like we’re doing Nothing with our time Just standing in a line Got no doubt it’s a sign Openly Blind No more time just this time We gotta do something Peoples got the power But the powers got the people So we don’t really know what to do The people’s with the power Got the power over peoples And they know just what they do Just what they do Every Day It seems like they’re playing Games with your mind Feeling pain all the time Got no doubt it’s a sign Open your mind No more time in your time You gotta choose something Once Upon a time We all cared Once Upon a time We Mattered Once Upon a time We all shared Once Upon a time We Mattered Once Upon a time We all cared Once Upon a time We Mattered

Girlfriend 03:28
Girlfriend Have you ever wondered Whether something that felt good was right Or something that felt wrong was good Or bad Or indifferent Even just the once I had a girlfriend and her name was Goodbye She never said why I had a girlfriend and her name was Obscene She was always too mean We really did not go I had a girlfriend and her name was Au Revoir We never went far Things were always out of place Why must I always be the bad guy And why can’t I be good Tell him why Sometimes It’s just right is wrong and wrong is right And there’s no way of knowing Which one is right or wrong Until the time has passed and then it’s too late Or is it Perhaps I had a girlfriend and her name was Get Lost She never did defrost I had a girlfriend and her name was No Way She always had her say I have a girlfriend and her name is Amazing We always share that thing We always share that thing That thing You know that thing That thing You know that thing That thing

You Still Look So Beautiful Hey there dear gorgeous I just wanted to let you know that I feel this way For you are the reason why The sun pops out on a cloudy day You are the reason why The rain does fall when I’m feeling blue And you are the reason why I wrote this song that I’ll sing for you You are you Are the reason why You are you Hey there dear gorgeous I just wanted to say every single day That you are a star to me You shine so bright on the darkest night You mean so much to me That my heart skips a beat every time we meet And you are the closest thing That I’ll ever have so I’d better sing You are you Are the reason why You are you Hey there dear gorgeous I just wanted to say that I’m glad I know you You’re down to earth and you’re funny too You’re so beautiful So You still look so beautiful You still look so beautiful You still look so beautiful today

Unnatural Selection Well, how many fucking trees will we take from the ground? How many fucking stars crash and burn? How many fucking diseases chase us around? How many fucking beliefs take us down? How many fucking people must we wage war on? How many hearts are aching 'cause this shits gone wrong? Nature killing nature The human condition How many fucking trees will we burn to the ground? How many fucking stars crash through town? How many fucking diseases chase us around? Nature killing nature Am I free in this cage? Called the human condition The human condit… How many fucking beliefs take us down? How many fucking people must we wage war on? How many hearts are aching 'cause this shits gone wrong? Nature killing nature The human condition I'm on my fucking knees In this human condition Nature killing nature The human condition I'm on my fucking knees

Sexy Ted 03:42
Sexy Ted Sexy Ted He’s gonna get you into bed Sexy Ted He’s gonna get you into bed There is this guy whose modus operandi Is finding the women whose guys are on standby He shows them some care, a little love and affection Slowly but surely he gains their attention Sexy Ted He’s gonna get you into bed When he spies his target he sidles up fast Making your relationship a thing of the past He’s like a pornographic image from the pages of a book Just like a magazine subscription one look and she’s hooked Sexy Ted He’s gonna get you into bed He’s always got some time he’s never hurrying past He’s effervescent, luminescent, he’s a blast While stuffs going on and you’re not paying attention He’s a double barreled carburetor flushed with affection Typically he’ll stop if you notice she’s missing But usually you’re busy golfing and fishing Accelerating faster he’s got no regard Now that woman of yours she is in his car Now it’s too late Now it’s too late Now it’s too late Now it’s too late He’s got a million girlfriends he’s sex implicit Got a tattooed body with a ten inch digit All the women love him and want to bed him He only has to ask and they do his bidding Got a bad boy image yet he’s a romantic painter He’ll sleep with you once then says “catch ya later” Ooh yeah Sexy Ted He’s gonna get you into bed Well it’s too late for regrets she’s in his bed He’s showing her the game “Have you met Ted?” Now you probably think this story’s suspicious This guy can’t exist he’s too fictitious Sexy Ted He’s gonna get you in his bed Well I’m telling you that he certainly can He’s in your house he’s the modern man He’ll do your lady, then he’ll do your daughter All I’m trying to do is to try and warn ya So you’d better treat your woman a little better Cos he’s out there and ready to come and get her So you’d better treat your woman a little better Cos he’s out there and ready to come and get her So you’d better treat your woman a little better Cos he’s out there and ready to come and get her Oooh Yeah
