Track Name: Instant Therapy (alternate version)
INSTANT THERAPY (R. LiVolsi)

Nice flap you got to cover that spot
I’m afraid I’ve news that’ll get you hot
I’ve got hair growin’ on my toes
Fine chap you’re not you always get caught
A little respect always means a lot
There’s no air going up your nose

Down to the birth checkout for appraisal
You had beautiful green eyes and they’ve gone hazel

You’re here and that is clear
But all the noise was for me this year
You didn’t send a valentine
Was it merely an afterthought?
Should old acquaintance be forgot
And never brought to mind?

Down to the birth checkout for appraisal
You had beautiful green eyes and they’ve gone hazel

All your nonsense shows
Forever wishing you’d decompose
I enjoyed watching you flop
Your fans wait while you hide
And they love you from the outside
Let’s take it from the top

Down to the birth checkout for appraisal
You had beautiful green eyes and they’ve gone hazel

Track Name: Circle Jerk (single edit)
CIRCLE JERK (B. Cellini)

This time the time is getting shorter
I don’t know what I’m supposed to be today
This single circle’s growing larger
I can’t get out, I can’t get out!
I can’t get out!
But I’m a lonely man with too much company

I’d rather not expose my feelings
I’d rather not discuss my vital flaws
And so I ride around in circles
I’m jerking off without getting off
I can’t get it up
But I’m a lonely man with too much company

And it shouldn’t be this complicated
All the sounds of life get understated
But you didn’t hear a sound from me
No one ever heard a sound from me
No one ever heard a sound (‘cos my head was spinning ‘round)
And I never saw a thing (now I’m hanging by a string)

And now the sounds are getting louder
I can’t ignore the thing that speaks to me
And so renewed with inspiration
I flip the switch but it’s still wrong
I can’t get it on!
I can’t get it on!
No!

Track Name: Learning to Crack Part 2
LEARNING TO CRACK PART 2 (R. LiVolsi)

Okay, let’s say, I’m insecure
And so, but well, enough about me
But if you think I am
You think therefore I am
And you should talk

Games in mind
We play them all the time
We play them all the time
Games in mind
A neurologic sign
A pathologic sign

Okay, I dreamed you would come back
It’s all I’m sure about the crack
But if you think I’m nuts
You think that I am nuts
You should see my shrink

Games in mind
You spend your days inside
You tend to fantasize
Games in mind
So much fun can make you blind
So much fun

For now let’s play a little lie
You say you’ll stay awhile

Games in mind
We play them all the time
We play them all the time
Games of head
We solve it all in bed
My face is turning red

Help me see that I don’t need help
Help me I feel blue

Track Name: If I Could Rule the World From a Small Town (Alternate Version)
IF I COULD RULE THE WORLD FROM A SMALL TOWN (B. Cellini)
I’ve got ambition I’ve got big dreams
Standing up on shoulders shining out like towering moonbeams
And so the Earth spins on as I devise plans from my cornfield

If I could rule the world from a small town
If I could rule the world from a small town

They tried to stop me tried to regulate me
But I’ve seen factories and oil wells and rubber trees
And like an air balloon I’ll rise up into the big blue yonder

If I could rule the world from a small town
If I could rule the world from a small town

I’m burning up, expanding out, exploding
I can’t take it!

If I could rule the world from a small town
If I could rule the world from a small town
If I could rule the world from a small town
If I could rule the world…

THE KIDS ARE BORED (LiVolsi)

Intuition
Intuition
Madness goes a long way

Oh boys they love noise
Oh boys they love noise
Oh boys they love…

Due to illness, Doctor
The kids are bored, the kids are bored

Madness goes a long way
Madness goes a long way

Oh girls they feel hard
Oh girls they feel hard
Oh girls they…hmmm

Solo

The kids are bored
The kids are bored

Madness goes a long way
Madness goes a long way
Madness goes a long way
Madness all the way
