Cognitive dopes all around me Trying to be the best that they can be Grasping potential melting reality Is this really it or is this the bottomless pit Chorus: Shout education Resist the give in to frustration Tempting you Shady figures hiding behind white lab coats Dispensing bottles of hope Follow the treasure map over the generation gap X marks the spot where we left it all behind Chorus
King of the freak show That’s where I saw you Thought that I would Burst at the seams Beautiful nerd queen You make my heart sing Drown out the stone throws Slay them with words What would you do If I never found you Where would I be If you couldn’t see me We’re just freaks and geeks you see and we like it that way
Poor Rush Hope and his gorgeous aching thought Imagine the stillness Beneath his concrete delusion Mad boy shout Slow motion elbow grease soaked in reality’s mischief Stuff it all in a bag full of fun rides Squandering doohickeys and trinkets Mad boy shout Rat-a-tat-tat up Up in the air Raffle off those smoke and mirrors One character at a time Mad boy shout Land of the free Home of the hop skip and a drunk Your stars and stripes are black all over Squishy chewy laugh riot all the way to the bank Mad boy shout This is it My everyday clock watching The path to Tiddily time Mad boy shout
Another lost transmission Another rude awakening I’m coming in for a crash landing Amazing systems of motion They’ve come screeching to a halt Down in junk universe Something wrong on the inside Rummaging through the past All the misplaced fortune lost Wanted to for a long time Hold back hold on Drive by keep moving along Stare down blank faces Face your blank pages
Hey mama you want fries with that shake Can you tell me what it’s gonna take The temperature’s climbin’ And the kids are restless Gotta find a new game Gettin’ tired of findin’ someone to blame Are you ready to roll Here comes the wiz The day’s gone up in smoke School’s just a big joke Play that mixed tape With all my favorite songs Well I wanna believe You still got something up your sleeve Are you ready to roll Well here comes the wiz They always say you’re no good You’re just misunderstood All you wanna find Is someone to call a friend But when the heat is on They won’t be talkin’ smack for long Are you ready roll Well here comes the wiz
Orange King 02:43
I want to believe in you But your fruit lies rotting on the ground And I should turn a blind eye I should forgive you just this one time Some days are diamonds and you’re on time The truth lies somewhere between the lines Try to find a new memory Are you trying to tune out or have you tuned in When you stagger along Don’t tumble down And I could turn a blind eye I could forgive you just this one time Orange king You’re fading away
Castlerock 02:32
When you get up too high It’s harder to come back down Why does the sun want to blind us And then sink to the shadows Is that you holding on Another lost moment I won’t let go this time As hope keeps on slipping away Let’s stay on top of the world Where no one can reach us Let’s stay on top of the world
He took a book down off the shelf But didn’t recognize the title Where did it come from This mystery story Full of things he didn’t say couldn’t understand A visiting stranger forgotten lover old friend All gone now every one Shivering stars tell another story You can see why they like it here In the quiet Everybody looks good to someone Heads filled with chances Where do all these melodies belong All these words I hear are not my own Talking voices seem to intertwine The music’s fading is it in my mind
Sunflower 01:14
Save a little peace for me And untie the lines we tow Keep the past close to secret hearts Where you can always go You see just what you want to see No matter what you know You see just what you want to see But you will always know
