Track Name: Goldilocks and the Fortress
You left your simple breakfast
Your city in a jar
You did not use your giant key
-You didn't go too far
You left your frozen wasteland
To fly around the world
Came back to find your gate unlocked
And perfumed, with a girl...

Who's been sitting in your chair?
Viewing crystals in your lair...
Pressing buttons in your head...
Who's been lying in your bed?

Goldilocks - in your Fortress of Solitude
Don't know what - she was trying to get from you...

The secrets you're concealing
from villains who would try
to breach your inner sanctum
destroy what's kept inside
You know for every man of action
A Cage of Steel around his heart
There is a woman with a blowtorch
To cut him apart

Who's been sitting in your chair?
Taking crystals from your lair?
Pressing buttons in your head?
Who's been lying in your bed?

Goldilocks - in your Fortress of Solitude
Don't know what - she was trying to get from you...

Forest or Frozen wasteland
Nursery Wall or Justice Hall
Are you sure you like to be alone?
What other lies have you been told?

Who's been sleeping in your bed? (Is what you feel)
Pressing buttons in your head? (even real?)
Who's been sleeping in your bed? (Is there something)
Pressing buttons in your head? (she tried to tell you?)

Goldilocks (nursery wall)
- in your Fortress of Solitude (justice hall)
Don't know what - she was trying to get from you...
Track Name: Vote For... (2008)
You talk about him like he doesn't exist
Cause reality is pwning your mind
See them in movies yes and maybe tv
Representation is denied to their kind
But we all make our choice
And for them to have a voice
We must think of them as well
Might think it sounds absurd
But when people aren't heard
It cheapens what they sell...

So vote for Peter Parker, Peter Pan,
Spare a vote for Superman
He might do well - you never can tell...
Vote for Hamsters, rats, and
I've heard tell of votes for Mickey Mouse as well
We should vote him in, a republican...

Those folks in cartoons, films and books that I've read
Have what it takes to help us all get ahead
The simple fact is I can trust them much more
Than the real ones I cannot bring myself to ignore...
But we all make our choice
And if we want them to have a voice
We gotta think of them as well...
I know it sounds absurd
But when these people aren't heard
It cheapens what they sell...

So vote for Peter Parker, Peter Pan,
Spare a vote for Superman
He might do well - you never can tell...
Vote for Hamsters, rats, and I've heard tell
Of votes for Mickey Mouse as well
We should vote him in, a republican...
Track Name: Might Have Been
There are people in my life
Dropping out and dropping in
Stopping now and then to talk
And briefly draw me in
I saw you around
But we only barely touched
Seems like I just met you
And you were moving on
And I never really knew you at all
I never really knew you at all

Now to all my friends and enemies
And I know you're there looking at me
Take a look inside and see
Find out why I'm not free
It bothers me the most
And there is no way to win
The phrase that weighs the heaviest
Is always "Might Have Been"

You should have said something in advance
The thing that hurts most is the missing chance
There's a thing about time... it slips away
There's a thing about time... it slips away
There's a thing about time...
There's none left but today

But of all that I have learned
From my life and from your death
There is only one thing
Hanging over all the rest
It bothers me the most and there is no way to win
The phrase that weighs the heaviest
Is always, "Might Have Been"
Track Name: Jason
Jason - saw your name upon the door
And I've been wondering what you're doing
Since I'd seen you there before
I haven't seen you
Though we live in the same town
And I wonder if that girl who's name
Escapes me's still around

And I'm sorry... I'm sorry...
I don't really have the answers
I can't change the way I feel
I'm sorry... I'm sorry...
I don't really have the answers anymore...

Jason - I can see you get your mail
And I wonder if I wrote to you a letter
Would you care?
As it's been 9 years
Since the argument at school
It would make me feel so happy
If you don't think I'm a fool...

So ignore me... Ignore me...
I don't really have the answers
You can't change the way I feel
I'm sorry... I'm sorry...
I can't really change what happened anymore

And Jason - Although I'm no one's kind of girl
I had hope that once I may have shared
A part of your world
Isn't it safe now?
Writing a song using your name?
I just hope that you won't hear it
And decide you feel the same

And I'm sorry... I'm sorry...
That I don't have all the answers
I can't change the way I feel
I'm sorry... I'm sorry...
You were right to just ignore me all this time...

And Jason - It's just your name upon a door
Though the things we lost can be with us
We really can't have more
So I've been wondering what you're doing
Knowing that you never cared
Except for maybe just one moment
In the argument we shared

Jason... You know I never was the girl I was before
And I don't have all the answers any more...
Track Name: All I Want
All I Want... Is another piece of you

I'm not looking for money
I'm not looking for fame
Am I looking for something
Do I want you to blame

All I want... Is a piece of you boy

I'm not looking to hurt you
I don't need to feel shame
Am I looking for something?
Do I need you to blame?

Am I looking for you boy?
Am I looking for me/peace?
Am I looking to hurt you?
Is that something for me?

I don't need you to love me
I just need you to stay
I don't need you to love me
I just need you to stay
I don't need you to love me
I just need you to stay
I just need you to stay

I can't keep falling in love with you
Feels like flying
I can't keep falling in love with you
Feels like dying

I'm not looking for money
I'm not looking for fame
Am I looking for something
Do I want you to blame

All I want... Is a piece of you boy

I'm not looking to hurt you
I don't need to feel shame
Am I looking for something?
Do I need you to blame?

Am I looking for you boy?
Am I looking for me/peace?
Am I looking to hurt you?
Is that something for me?

I don't need you to love me
I just need you to stay
I don't need you to love me
I just need you to stay
I don't need you to love me
I just need you to stay
I just need you to stay
Track Name: Dude Zombie Song
Dude.... yeah, download this word into your brain
Dude.... wrap your mind up inside these chains
Dude.... my critical thinking has been slain by
Dude.... it's creeping into my brain...

And I don't wanna be... a zombie... said I don't wanna be... a zombie
I wanna be free.... from this...

Dude.... I know that it's rude to just complain, but
Dude.... why can't we be more humane to those who suffer from this
Dude.... got enough pain inside my brain...
Dude.... making me feel like I'm insane...

And I don't wanna be... a zombie... said I don't wanna be... a zombie
I wanna be free.... from this...

Dude... what are you doing in my brain?
Dude... making me feel like I'm insane...
Never be sane....
Never be free....
Track Name: Fool
Lost Love
Never really had it but it
Ghosts on
People think it's there
Not love
Didn't really happen but I
Think you
Were trying to take it there
It wasn't really there

For I am a Fool
And I can feel you waiting here
I am a Fool
And I can't love you more

Don't let those
Words come out your mouth
Don't know
What I would do then
We both know
Chance is slim to none
I could
Change the way I am
It's not the way I am

For I am a Fool
And I can feel you waiting here
I am a Fool
And I can't love you more

I know you'd never hurt me
I know you'd not desert me
But I can't love you more...
I am a fool... I am a fool...
I can't love you more...

So let go
Find another love
I am
Such a waste of time
Don't know
Why I can't love you
Just feel
You're not of my kind
Maybe I am blind

And I am a Fool
'Cause I can leave you waiting here
I am a Fool
For I can't love you more
I am a Fool
And I can't love you more
Track Name: Damn You, Holyfield
Mr. Holyfield - Where's the next chapter?
You left us on the brink of misery
Mr. Holyfield, please give us something...
I'm waiting for the end of mystery
Cliffhangers that left me screaming
You tell of danger everywhere they go.
Oh find yourself back in the studio
Mail me a copy - I just have to know..

Damn you, damn you, Holyfield, Damn you, Holyfield
Damn you, damn you, Holyfield, Damn you, Holyfield!
Damn you, damn you, Holyfield, Damn you, Holyfield
Damn you, damn you, Holyfield, Damn you, Holyfield!

So Mr Holyfield, time to get hoppin'
Bring me to the end of this ordeal
Damn you, Holyfield, or is it "Doppin"...
I wish our trickster king of podcasting could work - a little faster...
