My Name Is Jonas

My name is Jonas
I'm carrying the wheel
Thanks for all you've shown us
But this is how we feel
Come sit next to me
Pour yourself some tea
Just like grandma made
When we couldn't find sleep
Things were better then
Once but never again
We've all left the den
Let me tell you 'bout it 

The choo-choo train left right on time
A ticket costs only your mind
The driver said, 'Hey man, we go all the way'
Of course we were willing to pay 

My name is Wepeel
I gotta box full of your toys
They're fresh out of batteries
But they're still makin' noise (makin' noise)
Tell me what to do
Now the tank is dry
Now this wheel is flat
And you know what else?
Guess what I received
In the mail today
Words of deep concern
From my little brother 

The building's not going as he planned
The foreman has injured his hand
The dozer will not clear a path
The driver swears he learned his math 

The workers are going home
The workers are going home
The workers are going home
The workers are going home
Yeah! 

The workers are going home
The workers are going home
The workers are going home
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! 

My name is Jonas 

No One Else

My girl's got a big mouth
With which she blabbers a lot
She laughs at most everything
Whether it's funny or not
And if you see her
Tell her it's over now 

I want a girl who will laugh for no one else
When I'm away she puts her makeup on the shelf
When I'm away she never leaves the house
I want a girl who laughs for no one else 

My girl's got eyeballs
In the back of her head
She looks around and around
You know it makes me sad to see her like that
Please don't believe her - she says that for anyone
And if you see her
Tell her it's a hey hey hey hey 

I want a girl who will laugh for no one else
When I'm away she puts her makeup on the shelf
When I'm away she never leaves the house
I want a girl who laughs for no one else 

And if you see her
Tell her it's over now 

And if you see her
Tell her it's over now 

And if you watch her go (watch her go)
Watch her, watch her, watch her, watch her! 

I want a girl who will laugh for no one else
When I'm away she puts her makeup on the shelf
When I'm away she never leaves the house
I want a girl who laughs for no one else, no one else 

The World Has Turned And Left Me Here

The world has turned and left me here
Just where I was before you appeared
And in your place an empty space
Has filled the void behind my face 

I just made love with your sweet memory
One thousand times in my head
You said you loved it more than ever
You said 

You remain turned away
Turning further every day 

The world has turned and left me here
Just where I was before you appeared
And in your place an empty space
Has filled the void behind my face 

I talked for hours to your wallet photograph
And you just listened
You laughed enchanted by intellect
Or maybe you didn't 

You remain turned away
Turning further every day 

The world has turned and left me here
Just where I was before you appeared
And in your place an empty space
Has filled the void behind my face 

You remain, turned away
Turning further every day 

The world has turned and left me here
Just where I was before you appeared
And in your place, an empty space
Has filled the void behind my face 

Do you believe what I sing now?
Do you believe what I sing now?
Do you believe? 

Do you believe what I sing now?
Do you believe what I sing now?
Do you believe? 

Buddy Holly

What's with these homies, dissing my girl?
Why do they gotta front?
What did we ever do to these guys
That made them so violent?
Woo-hoo, but you know I'm yours
Woo-hoo, and I know you're mine
Woo-hoo, and that's for all time 

Oo-ee-oo I look just like Buddy Holly
Oh-oh, and you're Mary Tyler Moore
I don't care what they say about us anyway
I don't care bout that 

Don't you ever fear, I'm always near
I know that you need help
Your tongue is twisted, your eyes are slit
You need a guardian
Woo-hoo, but you know I'm yours
Woo-hoo, and I know you're mine
Woo-hoo, and that's for all time 

Oo-ee-oo I look just like Buddy Holly
Oh-oh, and you're Mary Tyler Moore
I don't care what they say about us anyway
I don't care bout that
I don't care bout that 

Bang, bang a knock on the door
Another big bang and you're down on the floor
Oh no! What do we do?
Don't look now but I lost my shoe
I can't run and I can't kick
What's a matter babe are you feeling sick?
what's a matter, what's a matter, what's a matter you?
What's a matter babe, are you feeling blue? oh-oh!
And that's for all time
And that's for all time 

Oo-ee-oo I look just like Buddy Holly
Oh-oh, and you're Mary Tyler Moore
I don't care what they say about us anyway
I don't care bout that
I don't care bout that
I don't care bout that
I don't care bout that 

Undone - The Sweater Song

Matt: Hey bro, how we doin' man?
Karl: All right.
Matt: It's been a while man, life's so rad! This band's my favorite man, don't ya love 'em?
Karl: Yeah.
Matt: Aw man, you want a beer?
Karl: All right.
Matt: Aw man, this is the best. I'm so glad we're all back together and stuff. This is great, man.
Karl: Yeah.
Matt: Hey, did you know about the party after the show?
Karl: Yeah.
Matt: Aw man, it's gonna be the best, I'm so stoked! Take it easy bro'. 

I'm me
Me be
Goddamn
I am
I can
Sing and
Hear me
Know me 

If you want to destroy my sweater
Hold this thread as I walk away 

Mykel: Hey, what's up?
Karl: Not much.
Mykel: Did you hear about the party?
Karl: Yeah.
Mykel: Um, I think I'm gonna go but, um, my friends don't really wanna go. Could I get a ride? 

Oh no
It go
It gone
Bye-bye
Who I
I think
I sink
And I die 

If you want to destroy my sweater
Hold this thread as I walk away
Watch me unravel, I'll soon be naked
Lying on the floor (lying on the floor)
I've come undone 

If you want to destroy my sweater
Hold this thread as I walk away (as I walk away)
Watch me unravel, I'll soon be naked
Lying on the floor (lying on the floor)
I've come undone 

I don't want to destroy your tank-top
Let's be friends and just walk away
It's good to see you lying there in your Superman skivvies
Lying on the floor (lying on the floor)
I've come undone 

Surf Wax America

The sea is foaming like a bottle of beer
The wave is coming but I ain't got no fear
I'm waxing down so that I'll go real fast
I'm waxing down because it's really a blast
I'm going surfin cos I don't like your face
I'm bailing out because I hate the race
Of rats that run round and round in the maze
I'm going surfing, I'm going surfing! 

You take your car to work
I'll take my board
And when you're out of fuel
I'm still afloat 

My buddies and their honeys all come along
They seem invincible as they surf along
The sea is rolling like a thousand pound keg
We're going surfing, we're going surfing! 

You take your car to work
I'll take my board
And when you're out of fuel
I'm still afloat 

You take your car to work
I'll take my board
And when you're out of fuel
I'm still afloat 

All along the undertow
Is strengthening it's hold
I never thought it would come to this
Now I can never go home 

All along the undertow
Is strengthening it's hold
I never thought it would come to this
Now I can never go home 

You take your car to work
I'll take my board
And when you're out of fuel
I'm still afloat 

All along the undertow (you take your car to work)
Is strengthening it's hold (I'll take my board)
I never thought it would come to this (and when you're out of fuel)
Now I can never go home (I'm still afloat) 

You take your car to work
I'll take my board
And when you're out of fuel
I'm still afloat 

You take your car
I'll take my board
You take your car
I'll take my board
Let's go! 

Say It Ain't So

Oh yeah
Alright 

Somebody's Heine'
Is crowdin' my icebox
Somebody's cold one
Is givin' me chills
Guess I'll just close my eyes 

Oh yeah
Alright
Feels good
Inside 

Flip on the tele
Wrestle with Jimmy
Something is bubbling
Behind my back
The bottle is ready to blow 

Say it ain't so
Your drug is a heartbreaker
Say it ain't so
My love is a life taker 

I can't confront you
I never could do
That which might hurt you
So try and be cool
When I say
This way is a waterslide away from me
That takes you further every day
So be cool 

Say it ain't so
Your drug is a heartbreaker
Say it ain't so
My love is a life taker 

Dear Daddy
I write you in spite of years of silence
You've cleaned up, found Jesus, things are good or so I hear
This bottle of Steven's awakens ancient feelings
Like father, stepfather, the son is drowning in the flood
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah 

Say it ain't so
Your drug is a heartbreaker
Say it ain't so
My love is a life taker 

In The Garage

I've got a Dungeon Master's Guide
I've got a 12-sided die
I've got Kitty Pryde
And Nightcrawler too
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do 

I've got posters on the wall
My favorite rock group KISS
I've got Ace Frehley
I've got Peter Criss
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do 

I've got an electric guitar
I play my stupid songs
I write these stupid words
And I love every one
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do 

In the garage
I feel safe
No one cares about my ways
In the garage
Where I belong
No one hears me sing this song
In the garage
In the garage 

In the garage
I feel safe
No one cares about my ways
In the garage
Where I belong
No one hears me sing this song
In the garage
I feel safe
No one laughs about my ways
In the garage
Where I belong
No one hears me
No one hears me
No one hears me
No one hears me
No one hears me sing this song 

Holiday

Let's go away for a while
You and I
To a strange and distant land
Where they speak no word of truth
But we don't understand anyway 

Holiday
Far away
To stay
On a holiday
Far away
Let's go today
In a heartbeat! 

Heartbeat
Heartbeat 

Don't bother to pack your bags
Or your map
We won't need them where we're going
We're going where the wind is blowing
Not knowing where we're gonna stay 

Holiday
Far away
To stay
On a holiday
Far away
Let's go today
In a heartbeat! 

Heartbeat
Heartbeat
Heartbeat
Heartbeat 

We will write a postcard
To our friends and family
In free verse
On the road with Kerouac
Sheltered in his Bivouac
On this road we'll never die... 

Heartbeat
Heartbeat 

Let's go away for a while
You and I
To a strange and distant land
Where they speak no word of truth
But we don't understand anyway 

Holiday
Far away
To stay
On a holiday
Far away
To stay
On a holiday! 

Let's go away
Let's go away
On a holiday
Let's go away
Let's go away
In a heartbeat 

Only In Dreams

You can't resist her
She's in your bones
She is your marrow
And your ride home
You can't avoid her
She's in the air (in the air)
In between molecules
Of oxygen and carbon dioxide 

Only in dreams
We see what it means
Reach out our hands
Hold on to hers
But when we wake
It's all been erased
And so it seems
Only in dreams 

You walk up to her
Ask her to dance
She says, 'Hey baby
I just might take the chance'
You say, 'It's a good thing
That you float in the air (in the air)
That way there's no way
I will crush your pretty
Toenails into a thousand pieces.' 

Only in dreams
We see what it means
Reach out our hands
Hold on to hers
But when we wake
It's all been erased
And so it seems
Only in dreams 

Only in dreams...
Only in dreams...
Only in dreams...
Only in dreams...
Only in dreams...
Only in dreams...
