Track Name: welcome to the future
i live in the future,
and so do you,
we have computers,
and robots, too
nobody dies anymore
but the globe is getting warm
and it's because

i live in the future,
and so do you,
i have a flat-screen
and a cell phone, too
we try to socialize
but fail to see
our near demise
is in our screens

i live in the future,
and so do you
i'll rock and roll in the future,
and so will you
i'll grow old in the future,
and so will you
i'll die in the future,
and so will you,
the bees will go extinct in the future,
and so will we,
the universe will collapse after an eternity
Track Name: brain 4 u
tv static, electromatic,
i don't have a brain for you,

though you think i might be dramatic,
i'm just insane.
don't have a brain for you

i write songs to get along in outer space,
and when i get back to earth i avoid this place

it's not that hard, it's not that hard,

color bars, lucky charms,
i don't have a brain for you,

i could cut my box heart in two,
i don't have a brain for you,
i don't have a brain for you.
Track Name: isn't it funny
"are you okay," i said, "it's just the tumor in my head. my love, my love, my love; i was just writing to you to inform you of the time i have to live... i have to live... i have to live."

isn't it funny, how i don't feel real sad? my body is attacking me but i don't feel too bad.

"are you okay," i said, "this hurts you more than it hurts me."

it's a strange disease without a cure.

"...and i'm laughing it off! i feel healthy anyways... what can i say, what can i say, what can i say?"

isn't it funny, how i don't feel real sad? my body is attacking me but i don't feel too bad.
Track Name: song 39
when everyone is born and raised, who could come next?
when all the land is bought and built on, where will we go?

when you break me, what will i do?
when the nukes launch, what will we do?

when all the food is fake and cardboard, what will we eat?
when the water evaporates, what will we drink?

when you break me, what will i do?
when the nukes launch, what will we do?

when all the music has been created, where will we be?
when love is no longer the answer, we'll fail to see.
