Track Name: Don't Make Waves
do not make waves

just go about your daily chores

and keep your eyes down on the floor

you don’t really want to rock the boat

you’ve got it pretty good, don’t ask for more

things are relatively great

and good things come to those who wait

you’re represented in our democracy

you don’t really need to participate



do not make eye contact

with that strange woman on the street

yelling with that cardboard sign

write her off as just crazy

and congratulate yourself on being much

more dignified than she



some people crack

but you are much more well-behaved

you’ve got your brain much better trained

to focus on the trivial distractions

and remain docile, complacent, and obey

defer to what your masters say

when common sense starts flaring up

you suppress it right away



you limit conversation to

tv, sex, weather, and sports

democrat vs. republican

the system may have a couple warts

but it’s still the best government that we’ve got

do not make any waves.
Track Name: (Let's Go) Waterboarding!
(Let’s Go) Waterboarding!



well, it’s an age-old method

pre-Spanish Inquisition

we’ll tie you to a board

in an inclined position

wrap your head all up in celophane



pour on the water

cue the gag reflex

it never fails to get confessions

out of terror suspects

outside the U.S. we don’t have to be humane



suffocation sensation

a drowning simulation

shock the conscience?

that’s nonsense

it’s just enhanced interrogation



let’s go-go waterboarding tonight



it doesn’t cause organ failure

it won’t even leave a mark

now, when you’re dealing with terror

sometimes you gotta work on the dark side

Geneva don’t apply, it’s not torture



to keep America safe

we’ll do whatever it takes

can’t you liberals see what’s at stake?

it’s the only way to get results for sure



suffocation sensation

a drowning simulation

shock the conscience?

that’s nonsense

it’s just enhanced interrogation



let’s go-go waterboarding tonight

Track Name: Magic Alarm Clock
truth be told, I was scared to wake you up
would you recall the night before?
would you open up your eyes, see me, and then
grab your clothes, run for the door?

but I found to my relief
that that wasn’t the way it was gonna be
the last thing you wanted to do was leave
you wanted just to lie in bed with me

sadly, I had to drive you to your work
on a day gray with rain
but you said, though the weather was so bad
it was sunny in your brain

I always have a pen in my pocket
you always have a crossword in your bag
you knew one of Carroll’s walrus’ topics
and I knew that 13 down was “cad”
(a 3-letter word for a scoundrel)

and last night I feel asleep
fondling that 1937 quarter that you gave me to keep
it’s smooth like you
cause like me, it’s been worn down
I can’t forget how you looked at me
I wish you were around right now

how we wished for a magic alarm clock
we could snooze and make time freeze
so we could stay there in bed all fucking day
watching David Attenborough dvd’s

you always have your crossword puzzle
you know I always have my pocket pen
now I just have to hope this buzz will last
until I see you again
I can’t wait ‘til I see you again
