Track Name: Opposite-Milk Day
Every Saturday morning there’s a reason to feel fine.
Happily the Royal Assistants rush to read the new headline.
It seems there’s never a moment that’s allowed to be unwound,
It’s much easier to follow suit when there’s no one else around.
Wait now what’s that sound?

Hey-hey, it’s Opposite-Milk Day!
Hey-hey, it’s Opposite-Milk Day!

Standing guards above ground, observing all the in
between,
Never understand what it means when liars laugh, until
they’re green.
Ostrich eggs and a noisemaker can cure a restless mind,
Entertaining visitors long enough to pause and press rewind.
It’s all so unkind!

Hey-hey, it’s Opposite-Milk Day!
Hey-hey, it’s Opposite-Milk Day!

They will call up a marching band and tell them where to go.
Plastered on their faces are postage stamps that stomp through sand and snow.
Sirens signaling castaways to comb a distant isle,
Overstocking shelves with their potions redesigned to
make men smile.
And all the meanwhile…

Hey-hey, it’s Opposite-Milk Day!
Hey-hey, it’s Opposite-Milk Day!
Track Name: Money Machine
Oooh baby, if I had ten dollars I’d give ‘em to you in a flash!
Aww baby, it’s not like I need ‘em I’d rather you had ‘em instead.
Yeah baby, just sitting here,
Watching cartoons with the back of my head.
Oooh baby, if I had five dollars I’d give ‘em to you in a flash!
A flash
Flaaaaaash

Oooh baby, if I had four quarters I’d give ‘em to you in a flash!
Aww baby, it’s not that important, but you don’t seem to understand.
Yeah baby, when caught without socks on,
I’m just not a confident man.
Oooh baby, if I had a dollar I’d give it to you in a flash!
A flash
Flaaaaaash

And baby, we can’t…sink!
Cause baby, we can…think!
And baby, you can…drink!
Therefore, baby, I can…blink!

Oooh baby, if I had a quarter I’d give it to you in a flash!
Aww baby, it’s not like I’m tired, it’s just I don’t know what to say.
Yeah baby, you make too much sense when you say,
“I could make eggs all day!”
Oooh baby, if I had sand dollars I’d give ‘em to you in a flash!
A flash
Flaaaaaash

And-uh-baby, we can’t think!
Cause-uh-baby, we can sink!
And-uh-baby, you can’t drink!
Therefore, baby, I cannot blink!
Track Name: Whether Baby
“Take a sip, because…"
It’s harder to sink a stone!
"Bring three ships, because…"
I hear that’s how it’s going down!
She licked my lips,
She says I "don’t want to be alone…"

But…
“She is a weather vane, Hiding in the sand”
Aww…
She is a Whether Baby, She don’t give a damn

“Listen closely, or else I don’t think you’ll understand"
No!
"Change your clothes, dear”
I said, "Is that how you measure a man’s soul?"
She pinched my nose,
She says I "don’t wanna be a ghost…"

But…
“She is a weather vane, Hiding in the sand”
Ahh…
She is a Whether Baby, She don’t give a damn

Ate that shit, because I wanted to be alone
Changed my clothes, and now I feel like a goddamn ghost
She holds me close,
She says I "don’t wannabe unknown…"

And it’s hard,
I know
To be an
Unknown
But you think that it’s
To go
But it's hard, hard, hard,
We know

“She is a weather vane, Hiding in the sand”
Ah!
She is our Whether Baby, She don’t give a damn

“She is a weather vane, Hiding in the sand”
Nah!
She‘s our own whether baby, she don’t give a damn
Track Name: I Killed My Tongue(This Morning)
Why can’t you…
Be what you’re supposed to be?
Be what you’re supposed to be.
Be what you’re supposed to be!

Three generals said,
“This here will make you look younger!”

Six journals read,
“They always say the right things!”
And I’m impressed
By how well it’s going over,
With ancient text,
And a spool of kite string.

But I can’t get no relief,
Cause I don’t, I don’t believe
That I,

Killed my tongue this morning,
I killed my tongue.
I killed my tongue this morning,
I killed my tongue!

Why can’t you…
Be what you’re supposed to be?
Be what you’re supposed to be.
Be what you’re supposed to be!

Our mothers cry,
“Who wants a video smoothie?”

All others sigh,
“Is it made of salad gold?”
And I’m in desperate need of real fine grooming.
Please be my guest, and prepare to get old!

But I won’t get such relief
Cause you don’t, you don’t believe
That I,

Killed my tongue this morning,
I killed my tongue!
I killed my tongue this morning,
I killed my tongue

Tooongue
Ooouung
Uuung-guh!

"You make no sense,
You're like a permanent computer!"
In my defense, I present the digits that I have raised.
"Then count us in,
If only for the sake of humour!"
But, where to begin?
The green has gone, while we have "grayzed"

But it serves as no relief,
Cause you still just won’t believe
That I,

Killed my tongue this morning,
I killed my tongue!
I killed my tongue this morning,
I killed my tongue!
Track Name: Battery Operated (Single Version)
Here comes the most famous newspaper stand,
Keeping a date with a well known medicine man.
They’ll deny their daily ration,
They’ll deny their secret passion, but it’s true…

She’s so celebrated, Battery Operated
He’s so celebrated, Battery Operated
Disease so hated it’s Battery Operated

At the fire skins and furs gather around,
Taking in shots as the man fits into his gown.
They’ll deny it’s more than fashion,
They’ll deny that they look ashen, but they do…

She’s so celebrated, Battery Operated
He’s so celebrated, Battery Operated
Disease so hated it’s Battery Operated

They’ll never say, Never state that they’re
Less than okay, but
They’ll always claim, Make it plain that
If you’re dead we can go out and play
If you’re dead then we can play

She’s so celebrated, Battery Operated
He’s so celebrated, Battery Operated
Disease so hated it’s Battery Operated
Track Name: How Heaven-Sent (Early Mix)
Oh, how my heart jumps, to
See the blood pumping
Past the ocean grease, to
Highlight foreign trees.

And I know, and Mars knows,
And Venus knows, Uranus knows,
The Sun grows

Pulsing back and forth, All
Lights are headed North. Here,
Washed up on the shore, Lie
Merry men-of-war.

And I know, and Mars knows,
And Venus knows, Uranus knows,
The Sun grows

And the Sun knows that, though
All good missiles scream their names, but
It’s done nothing for their aim

Ain’t it just a dream? My
What a brilliant scheme! This
Fits so perfectly. How
Heaven-Sent! How heavenly!

And I know, and Mars knows,
And Venus knows, Uranus knows,
The Sun grows

Oh, how heavenly, how
Heavenly, how heavenly, how
Heaven"Scent", how heavenly, how
Heavenly, how heavenly
