Track Name: The Birds
It's a beautiful day
The sun's in the sky
I go for a drive.
And he's got stock options

My love you've been signed
Our love is aligned
Lets find a motel
And he's got stock options

Screams tear through the air
And the sky becomes black
They're ready to attack

It's the birds

I've moved in to sales
I'm the marketing type
oh woo hoo
And he's got stock options

Please welcome Bill Stone
Give him a round of applause
He closed us the deal
And he's got stock options

Screams tear through the air
And the sky becomes black
They're ready to attack

It's the birds

Cardboard cutout
Gunpowder guillotine
Dynamite with a laser beam

Coat hangers, people dead
Homicidal eagle bled
CG over egg

It's the birds
Track Name: Popcorn Girl
Meet me across the galaxy
With typewriters and infinite monkeys
Where E is hv and this song is deemed as poetry
Come journey and see
That she is you and he is me
... well nearly

And I know we can be together
Just look at them
And I know we can be together
Just look at them

Please be my popcorn girl

And I know that you see them with faces like ours
With protons and quarks so alike
And I know that you see them and are wondering too
If it could be... You and I.
Please be my popcorn girl

You talk to yourself and daydream all day
You're Sheldon's bastard brother
And why are you obsessed with Brian May?

Your dress sense is poor, conversation's a geeky bore
You think you can win my heart
With a love song in a card

How could I be with a surname like that?
You're a TK Maxx to a Burberry
You're a PC to a Mac

Well there is that

But I know that we could be together
Look at them
But I know that we could be together
Look at them

I'm not your popcorn girl
Please be my popcorn girl
Track Name: Drive
I go out and find something to eat
Drive Drive
I have to go and find somewhere to sleep
Drive Drive

I'm working hard until the job is done
Drive Drive
Talk to some scientologists and try have some fun
Drive Drive

And I'm so low
So young
And so alone

But Morrissey lives there!
I don't care
But Morrissey lives there!
I don't care
But Morrissey lives there!
I don't care
But Morrissey lives there
I really don't care

Deserted sidewalks and carmageddon streets
Drive Drive
Fast food signs among copy & paste concrete
Drive Drive

No machine of a dream, not even the hubcaps gleam
Drive Drive
J-ROQ on, Mumford & Sons on repeat
Drive Drive

And I'm so low
So young
And so alone

But Morrissey lives there!
I don't care
But Morrissey lives there!
I don't care
But Morrissey lives there!
I don't care
