Track Name: Weapons
There’s a cellphone tucked under your pillow
It makes me junk-sleep
And it doesn’t do a thing for growth hormones or dreams

You hear a ringtone but it’s just an electronic bleat.
It makes you junk-sleep
And the phantom-phone rings on, until we fall asleep at dawn

Was that a ghost-call or drunk-dial?
I’ll build a big fat wall, I’ll build it 20 feet tall

And when we awake it’s vampire-time,
and I’ll know you for real
And then late at night, when it’s drunk-dial time
I’ll tell you how I feel

Was that a ghost-call or drunk-dial?
I’ll build a big fat wall, I’ll build it 20 feet tall

The kids have found a weapon that will change the balance of power
They download high-pitch ringtones, that adults can’t hear with their aging ears
The kids have found a weapon, that adults can’t hear with their aging ears
That adults can’t hear with their aging years

I need a key to your tolerance-room
where you keep all your books I assume
Track Name: Funemployment
I know it’s time to start our unemployment
Let’s do a rhyme, and make it our funemployment

You could start with a water-balloon fight between the kids and you
Or a record label whatever fits you
Start a band and sing

Or you could apply at Burger King

You can choose between basking in the glow from the screen TV
Or sign up for blogging about birds and trees
Start a charity

Or you could apply at Burger King

If the dirt on your notepad doesn’t end up in the stores by spring
Write the words down in a song about sex and sing
Start a family

Or you could apply at Burger King
Track Name: Downaging
I found a broken-winged cormorant
that looked exactly like me after tour
I know that I am changing
And I’m not downaging anymore

Between these mountains
at the lakes I found a cure
The next drive north everything seemed so unsure

But my band still rocks!

And I became a boy when I received
my first Happy Meal toy
And I noticed a pair of breasts
and I did what I could
I did my very own best
To get this girl undressed
but I sadly failed the test

You let me know
that you’re made of snow
and that you will melt
if you are held

You'd melt into the lake
and each day I’d have a taste
Track Name: Major Labels
Uploads on Youtube by kids in school
They are more creative, they have the tools
They are not afraid, they don’t give a fuck about
Major label rules
and the monetary drool
that floats out of these major fools
Track Name: Battle Hymn of the Fox Father
Nourishing nests of tiger-moms and helicopter-dads
Put chicks to rest with naked palms and throw ‘em to the rats
From helicopter platforms

Killer litter
and fumes from the city fill ethic committees
with watery eyes and faces all gritty
Call me a quitter
This battle is lost to the new-borns in foster homes
Raised on low costs on logins for Twitter
Heavy hitters
and pro-eco acts are discouraged by taxes
who rely on facts that foxes aren’t bitter
Call me a quitter
This battle is lost to the new-borns in foster homes
Raised on low costs and logins for Twitter

A vanishing past for a battle-fox and all that he has
Diminishing faster that food supplies and effort against theft
Followed by laughter

Killer litter
and fumes from the city fill ethic committees
with watery eyes and faces all gritty
Call me a quitter
This battle is lost to the new-borns in foster homes
Raised on low costs on logins for Twitter
Heavy hitters
and pro-eco acts are discouraged by taxes
who rely on facts that foxes aren’t bitter
Call me a quitter
This battle is lost to the new-borns in foster homes
Raised on low costs and logins for Twitter
Track Name: Lifestock
The hairs on my hands seem to fade a little
My eyes seem more and more timid to sunlight
I guess it’s 'cause the sun and trees are non-commital
But both seem to be putting up a fight
Against me

I need to raise produce
and lifestock for just a week
and live without camera-girls
and blockbuster movie themes

It’s time to disconnect electric supplies
and stop the raping of beehives
How many of us will survive
when stings have made our throats way too dry
to reply

I need to raise produce
and lifestock for just a week
and live without camera-girls
and blockbuster movie themes
Track Name: Farmscrapers
What we built was a vertical farm
Designed by architects with good intentions
'Cause we multiply on diminishing land
Regarding science they will give us a hand

We’ll build vertical farms
With our vertical arms
We’ll build vertical farms
With our 5-foot arms
Track Name: Take Care
A slap in the face with all this human waste
That’s unavoidable in times of progress
Security fears of all the ships at piers
Filled with people in need for a rest

And they watch the military fly-overs
And talk about traveling light
There’s a global spread of wasted lives
Which we’ll later take care of with knives
Track Name: Pro-Disney
Soundtracks with strings and endless reverb-rings
rest on the ears of the youngest siblings
One coloured girl that seems like the real thing
Is drawn by someone ultimately right-winged

The nagging for movies and targeted ads
Result in a dollar-value without brake-pads
Do girls get their minds fucked by cultural brats
Does it affect their moms patterns, does it affect their dads

Their words are swords to the throats of massive relentless herds
Written by grown nerds with the exact right key-words
If everything works and the message is clearly heard
Younger girls will help raise stock-prices at least by two-thirds
Track Name: Pants
Boys with their pants and their holes
They don’t know they’re getting old
They just think and they say
That old people are in the way

And then you’re covered in shit
And you don’t think that you are fit
To be raising a kid
That gets to suck on all the tits
