20 Bucks 02:06
I can't loan you Even 20 bucks I know it's not a whole lot but you've shown that you suck And I'm not willing to pretend that you and I are still friends I can't trust you As far as I can throw you Your squinty little eyes are peering into the light And the tinder box of your soul will surely catch on fire

Downtown 00:49
There is a version of this that has words, but this isn't it.

You can bury me in the ocean You can bury me under ground You can scatter my ashes all around Even in death there's comedy to be found Even in death there's comedy to be found Even in death there's comedy to be found I've been thinking about someday after I've been thinking about running down Something funny even in disaster Even in death there's comedy to be found Even in death there's comedy to be found Even in death there's comedy to be found

Toronto 01:24
I wouldn't lead a horse to water If I thought it would If I thought it would swim away Oh how many horses you think swim away from Chicago More than you'd think I would say Yeah Woah Oh I'm gonna grab me that pony yeah ah yah And I'm gonna swim full away I'm gonna swim all the way to Toronto Gonna live there for the rest of my days The rest of my days The rest of my days The rest of my days Toronto

Sedative 02:40
Been worrying about nothing Now I'm worrying about worrying There is a primordial worry Hidden inside each quark and then buried Need something to make my worry end I need a sedative Need something to make the worry end Need a sedative and I need it now now now Need a sedative and I need it now now now Need some of what your on Got a warm place to lay my head Don't have to wonder how I'm getting fed There is no reason for concern There is enough fuel for the slow burn Need something to make the worry end Need something to make the worry end Need a sedative
