Track Name: Electromagnetic Pulse
Watch what you wish for baby,
You don't want me around.
I'll zero out your hard drive,
a click it's only sound.

Your phone's a pretty toy,
Till I turn out the lights.
But you don't need all that,
to feel my world tonight.

Chorus:

Watch out! Watch out! Watch out!
I'm dangerous
My electromagnetic pulse

You know that I'm in charge,
But keep your radio,
An angry static burst,
is all the future knows.

Your well-connected lifestyle,
Will crumble at my touch.
And you had best start running
If it's gonna be too much.

CHORUS

Bridge:
The neon daggers pierce you from every side,
But with one mighty pulse, they all fall away,
Leaving you naked, in the dark.

CHORUS

Take this sweet injection
Embrace your fate
Now that you've crossed the threshold,
you know it is too late.

You feel my power rising,
the tingling in your toes.
The beating of my pulse,
Is everything you know.

Watch out! Watch out! Watch out!
I'm dangerous
Track Name: Undercover
CHORUS:
Undercover
Going undercover

Tonight we're going walking on the sand,
I got something you need to understand,
About the business that's been going down,
All those lonely nights I wasn't round.

Converted both our bank accounts to cash,
Now hold your tongue before you say it's rash,
The guys I know will hunt down any trace,
And it's about damn time we fled this place.

CHORUS

Information's never free.

You understand you just can't call your mom,
To tell her what the hell is going on,
Say goodbye to all your single life,
See I told the feds that you're my wife,

We'll grow a nice mustache or amish beard,
A month as blonde and you won't feel too weird,
Going underground's all we can do,
Cause I told the Man about you-know-who!

CHORUS

That's the last they'll see of me.

Undercover baby
Only way to save me.
Got to disappear
Five ways of out of here

You're my guiding light
Cover of the night

Going going gone.
Track Name: Sexy Intellectuals - The Girl From Ipanema
Tall and tan and young and lovely, The girl from Ipanema goes walking, And when she passes
each one she passes goes "a-a-ah!"

When she walks she's like a samba that, Swings so cool and sways so gentle, That when she passes
each one she passes goes "a-a-ah!"

Oh, but I watch her so sadly, How can I tell her I love her? Yes, I would give my heart gladly
But each day when she walks to the sea, She looks straight ahead not at me

Tall and tan and young and lovely, The girl from Ipanema goes walking, And when she passes
I smile, but she doesn't see, She just doesn't see, No she doesn't see
Track Name: Sexy Intellectuals - Bang Bang
I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight

Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down.

Seasons came and changed the time
When I grew up, I called him mine
He would always laugh and say
"Remember when we used to play?"

Bang bang, I shot you down
Bang bang, you hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, I used to shoot you down.

Music played, and people sang
Just for me, the church bells rang.

Now he's gone, I don't know why
And till this day, sometimes I cry
He didn't even say goodbye
He didn't take the time to lie.

Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down...
Track Name: Sexy Intellectuals - Femme Fatale
Here she comes, you better watch your step
She's going to break your heart in two, it's true
It's not hard to realize
Just look into her false colored eyes
She builds you up to just put you down, what a clown

'Cause everybody knows (She's a femme fatale)
The things she does to please (She's a femme fatale)
She's just a little tease (She's a femme fatale)
See the way she walks
Hear the way she talks

You're written in her book
You're number 37, have a look
She's going to smile to make you frown, what a clown
Little boy, she's from the street
Before you start, you're already beat
She's gonna play you for a fool, yes it's true

'Cause everybody knows (She's a femme fatale)
The things she does to please (She's a femme fatale)
She's just a little tease (She's a femme fatale)
See the way she walks
Hear the way she talks
Track Name: Sexy Intellectuals - Not a Pretty Girl
I am not a pretty girl
that is not what I do
I ain't no damsel in distess
and I don't need to be rescued
so put me down punk
maybe you'd prefer a maiden fair
isn't there a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere

I am not an angry girl
but it seems like I've got everyone fooled
every time I say something they find hard to hear
they chalk it up to my anger
and never to their own fear
and imagine you're a girl
just trying to finally come clean
knowing full well they'd prefer you
were dirty and smiling

and I am sorry
I am not a maiden fair
and I am not a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere

and generally my generation
wouldn't be caught dead working for the man
and generally I agree with them
trouble is you gotta have youself an alternate plan
and I have earned my disillusionment
I have been working all of my life
and I am a patriot
I have been fighting the good fight
and what if there are no damsels in distress
what if I knew that and I called your bluff?
don't you think every kitten figures out how to get down
whether or not you ever show up

I am not a pretty girl
I don't want to be a pretty girl
no I want to be more than a pretty girl
Track Name: Summer
Summer, Summer
You always come around for such a short time
And when you leave, I fall in such a cold place in my heart
Summer Summer
I find myself myself just waiting for another season
Without your light and warmth I don't think that I can go on

CHORUS:
I know that you are much more than
a killer from the future
But I just want your love right here and now
Summer Glau

Summer Summer,
I always liked the crazy girls in high school
The ones who weren't afraid
to get lost in the games that
only two can play
Summer Summer
Are you like that
Or maybe light and laughing
Annoyed by one more
lovesick fool typecasting you again?

CHORUS

Summer Summer,
I know that you can read my mind
But I am not afraid
of a woman who knows more than I do
Summer Summer,
I know you want a role to spread your wings
When I direct another film,
The romantic lead, she will be you, 'cause

CHORUS

CHORUS
Track Name: Looking for Lorelei
And then they smashed into the rocks,
Just listening to her sound,
A hundred hearts were breaking,
As the ship went down,
Well there's an awful lot of gold,
Just waiting down below,
You got a mighty strong attraction ...

But I ain't looking for Lorelei,
Looking for Lorelei,
Looking for Lorelei to drown my dreams.

I've known stronger men than I,
Who've fallen at your throne,
I prayed their screams were pleasure,
While I bunked alone,
But when my ship is setting sail,
I'm headed for the sun,
I know that you'll be waiting ...

But I ain't looking for Lorelei,
Looking for Lorelei,
Looking for Lorelei to drown my dreams.

Cause I been that foolish sailor,
Taking chances every day,
What don't kill you makes you stronger,
Think I'm finally strong enough to say ...

I ain't looking for Lorelei,
Looking for Lorelei,
Looking for Lorelei to drown my dreams.
Looking for Lorelei,
Looking for Lorelei,
Looking for Lorelei to drown my dreams in you.
Track Name: Wine Into Water
Since I was a hebejebe,
I seen signs on the TV,
Reach for that American star.

'Cause I might last longer,
If my aftershave were stronger,
And I drove an even faster car.

But my folks get older,
And I feel a little colder,
When I'm chanting for the US of A.

Got me standing all alone,
Hundred numbers in my phone,
Something's gotta get me through today.

CHORUS:
Well you looked so fine
Turning water into wine,
But all it ever got us was drunk.
Now I'm looking for a daughter,
To turn wine into water again.
Wine into water again.

When I last got saved,
Pulled myself out of my grave,
To the land of empty bottles and change.

With my last check gone,
In the painful light of dawn,
Nothing left to me but more of the same.

Thought a man full grown,
Had to make it on his own,
Drown his troubles with whatever's at hand.

Till the last cup falls,
And my lovin' angel calls,
Cause together we can make that stand!

FEMALE VOICES: Well you looked so fine turning water into wine.
Oh, cool water flows.
Wine into water again.
Track Name: Be My Disco
Last night I won the lottery
and planned my future without you,
Because the Thetans my advisers
were beginning to doubt you,
But once I'd traveled the whole world,
And made sweet love to ev'ry
half Maori Chinese girl,
I wanted you back.

I couldn't find the words to paint
how I was missing your starlight,
Or how the laughter in your films
gave me topographers' insight,
And when I rang, you answered twice,
Till there was nothing in between us
But a world-engulfing brooch device,
I wanted you back.

CHORUS
Baby be my disco,
Like they do at the disco,
In the places where disco's still cool!
Life is all risisko,
But I'll never let this go ...
I'll always be your lover's fool!

I got confused because I'm loyal
to the Ringers of Slipshod,
Till they invoked the modal clause
about usurping a false god,
But when creation's 1-2-3,
And all my desert divinations
lead to pictograms of you plus me,
I wanted you back.
Track Name: Bill Says
You're going down, toiling in your mock obscurity,
In your home town, drunk upon the dead-end surity.
Look in their eyes, see the glimmer of light,
Rocket is rising, but just not tonight,
By next week you'll be sure.

Flirting with time, making out around the corner walk,
The honest man's crime, wanting to believe your doubletalk.
Making your bed in sincerity's shoes,
Talking the talk, but you're fighting to lose,
When Verity gets out.

And if Bill says it's a classic blunder,
You'd best believe it's true.
Though there might be alternatives to going under,
There's none that you would choose.

'Cause when Bill says it's a classic blunder,
You'd best believe it's true.
Though there might be alternatives to going under,
It's nothing you would do.

It's the way of the world,
It's your way out of time,
If you're not on the map,
Then your path is a lie.

In the kingdom you choose,
All you have is your vote,
That's when your drunken Earl takes note.

Walking around, full of all the rock idolatry,
In every new town, selling off the pre-teen poetry.
Getting a buzz off the glamor of youth,
We are the new men, declaring the truth,
That shapes before your eyes.
Track Name: Awesome
Because it's awesome!
It's the most awesome fruit in the world.
Because it's awesome!
A sphere of the most awesome fruit in the world.

When it's time for breakfast,
I sit at the nexus of,
The delicious king!

The pulp is defiant,
You cannot deny it,
Oh the juice is everything!

It's awesome!
I'm driving the most awesome car in the world.
Oh yes it's awesome!
You know it's the most awesome car in he world.

No need to be faster,
When you are the master of,
All that you behold!

I call him Attilla,
You know every thrill,
Because he's worth his weight in gold!

Feel the awesome in your bones,
Lust for awesome in your home,
Reaching for the sky,
'Cause awesome gets you awesome awesome awesome high!

Because she's awesome!
I'm seeking the most awesome girl in the world.
Because she's awesome!
You could be the most awesome girl in the world.

I know when I find her,
The awesome will blind her
With its explosion of love.

The love is eternal,
The sex is infernal,
And we'll never get enough.

Because we're awesome!
And we'll have the most awesome life in the world.
Because we're awesome!
I tell you the most awesome life in the world.

We call it "Awesome!"
