Free Advice 03:16
You're on thin ice Karma's gonna to catch up with you Measure once cut twice You're going to wish it was as stupid as that When your nightmares feel like dreams I hope it never happens to you You're on thin ice When you fucked up everything you did And the rumors that you spread Are tied together by bare thread Someday it'll catch up to you You're on thin ice But karma's gonna catch up with you It was by your own device But somehow, someone still loves you When you live the life of a thief Someday it will catch up with you

Midnight Marge goes through strange phases She fell asleep in the theatre lobby She went to work in a jewelry factory And she lost her finger in a goddamn machine but She's on her way Making money and friends All she wanted was to stay up late And skip school with her next door neighbor Now and then she'll look back on the good times In between the sound of the punch clock Where did it go Your money and friends? It's no good All that you do Make money and friends It's no good for you All that you do

It must be a misunderstanding You're smarter than you think But I remember when I live in a miracle morning And I live at the end of days It must be nice to have a little money But love is sweet and sour I'll love you sweet or sour

All my life I've been sad and blue I sit in my room and think about Over and over and over and over I'm so alone What can I do? I look at your cat and I feel so sad I look at your keyboard and I feel so sad I look at the postcards hanging on my wall I'm living in a photo and I feel so sad You live in the city in a little tiny pad When you live in the city you can feel so bad and I wanna know I wanna know What virtue's, Lord, you make us abhor Oh, I know I've been wrong but you are always in style

Wish List 03:39
I wish I'd listened to you Just one time In all those years I wish I could compromise Comprehend what you did I wish I could be like you Just like you But it's never gonna happen, man I wish I could sell myself I wish I could really write Just like you 'cause you're a real poet, man I wish I was just like Leonard Mike, not like myself I wish I'd listened to you, what you said and not what you did I wish I could be like you Just like you But it's never gonna happen, man

Bogus Lives 04:19
Have you seen the price of limes? Bogus lives Have you seen the price of dimes? Bogus lives We're using 7-up in our margaritas Bogus lives There was a man called lime He lived two lives at a time He was in love with Holly Martins From whom there was no pardon But that t'wren't his only crime
