Track Name: Monotonous Activity Gots Me Thinkin'
There are 6 six Starbucks in my neighborhood
None of them are open as late as they should
I spend my night just roaming the streets
I look around. I hurt my feet.
Cuz I thought my ride was back at my place
But it was the wrong car and I got punched in the face
So it’s me and the foxes and the rats and raccoons
I say “Good Evening.” They correct “Good Afternoon.”

Should I play along or should I just sing?
Monotonous activity gots me thinkin'

If I got a new cat, it’d be called Dr. Bob
Give the doctor pets. Give the doctor love.
I like to explore and geography
I asked a whore where to find coffee
A door wide open. I will let myself in.
20s storybook style. 20 years abandoned.
I want to travel. I want to get lost.
Want to go grocery shopping in Petropavlovsk

Funny how smells make pretty things disgusting.
Monotonous activity gots me thinkin'

And I drift away...

I’ve been out and I’ve had enough
These were the best years of my life and I fucked them up
I look at my penis through a fun house mirror
I found my coffee and at a local diner
I see an ant and I see a cockroach
Fighting to the death on my piece of toast
And if you saw a lobster running round on the ground
You wouldn’t think to put it in your mouth

And I notice that my ass is really hurting,
Monotonous activity gots me thinkin'

Should I answer the phone or should I let it ring?
Monotonous activity gots me thinkin'
Track Name: Parson's Wheel
Hey there, I’m Ranger Dan
Gonna tell ya the story of our land
It’s about a simple man that everyone should know
He took a wheel off an old buggy
It rolled down a hill till it hit a tree
And when he ran down to go see, John Parsons found some gold

A town sprang up
It was thriving
Here is our oldest building
It was a brothel
It was a post office
Now it’s used for nothing

Let me take you to lunch (tell me about Jesus)
Here have a coke (tell me about Jesus)
This fish is on us (tell me about Jesus)
This a great restaurant
Pay the bill. Get me outta here. I don’t wanna hear about Parson’s Wheel

A historic part of town
Is the spot where Mark Twain fell down
I’ll entertain questions now about the teachings of Christ
We have an Easter parade
It runs every year even when it rains
Will your soul be saved if you were to die today?

There’s a golf course
Lots of shopping
Served by the 64 line bus
Brand new high school
Teaching the children
In God we Trust

Let me take you to lunch (tell me about Jesus)
Here have a coke (tell me about Jesus)
This fish is on us (tell me about Jesus)
This a great restaurant
Pay the bill. Get me outta here. I don’t wanna hear about Parson’s Wheel

I’m the Mayor of this town and I’m here to express that the opinions addressed are not our interest. So wontcha go away Ranger Dan cuz you know that your tour is just a scam. It’s a hoax. It’s a show. We welcome Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Jew. Any belief that’s gonna relieve you. We got an art fair in June that’s gonna be fun. There’s so much to do but persecution ain’t one.

Let me take you to lunch (tell me about Jesus)
Here have a coke (tell me about Jesus)
This fish is on us (tell me about Jesus)
This a great restaurant
Pay the bill. Get me outta here. I don’t wanna hear about Parson’s Wheel
