Dreams of a future keep you up at night But you don’t sleep anymore Yeah I have nightmares when I close my eyes I meet myself at the door I’m saying “Hey many, what’re you doing with your life? You’re gettin high, like, almost every night? You used to wanna get up and go out, But man, lately it’s an uphill fight.” Hey, what’re you doing now, when you come down? Hey, what’re you doing now, when you come down? Well you could be a star if you took the time But you just can’t be bothered You’d have to try and you’re not the trying kind You say that life’s just left you bruised and battered But that’s just it, you know you’re full of shit You know you’re scared and afraid you’re gonna fail Hey, I remember when I gave up on my dreams, man It was about the time they all turned to nightmares. Well did you think you’d automatically win? Ain’t it time that you plugged back in? I’ll tell ya something and it won’t be nice You Motherfucker

Snow falling, melting on the roof She’s at her desk, she only stops to look She’s writing a letter with no reason to rewrite it “Dear Man, I write to you for advice. I’ve got a problem and I just don’t know who to trust.” “You see, I’m married to a man in the service, He went to China and he got the syphilis, Can you tell me when it’s safe to live with him again? My father always said he’d wish himself dead If he ever caught what my husband did. But I’d rather trust my husband the most.” “Dear man, will you tell me what to do?” She said to herself “Dear man, will you tell me what to do?” She said to herself “Dear man, will you tell me what to do?” She said to herself “Dear man, will you tell me what to do?” She said to herself

it's time, it's time to go you've all been briefed on what we know we don't know if humans are dangerous that record's all we've got to inform us it's a risky day, it's a risky place but for the music that's the risk we take and if you happen to get caught in a dreadfully tight spot fly away, fly back to space fly away, fly back to space it's time, it's time to go you've all been briefed on what we know fly to all the lands of earth you all know what this music's worth so take care so we can share what we love to blare, the wares, the rare sonic fares glad you've all returned, how was the mission? our sound banks are full of your new addition most the time planetside was a success but we had a problem i need to address Modulo was left behind likely held captive by their kind i wish to lead a rescue crew in hopes that Mod hasn't met its doom

Chill down your spine like someone’s walkin on your grave I run my fingers down your spine to get you to misbehave I wanna make you make me I wanna take you take me Cause pretty baby, you know who I am I’m your steely dan, your coin-operated wild man Oh pretty baby won’t you make me say please? And if you want I will beg on my knees Scrape your painted nails cross my pretty face Just rip my clothes of girl and throw em bout the place I wanna make you make me I wanna make you take me home tonight Cause pretty baby, you know that I can I’m your steely dan, your coin-operated wild man Oh pretty baby won’t you make me say please? And if you want I will beg on my knees

What age were you really when you had those German soldiers in your sights? What age were you really when you squeezed your finger and you took their lives? What age were you really when you looked across the battlefields of war? What age were you really when you showed a nation just what it’s girls were for? Roza Shanina April 2nd, 1944. Just outside the city of Vitebsk. A shot rings out and a young girl falls to her knees. The girl looks her friend in the eye and says “My God, I’ve just killed a man.” Her friend looks back and says “That wasn’t a man you killed, that was a Fascist.” Roza Shanina What age were you really when you had those German soldiers in your sights? What age were you really when you squeezed your finger and you took their lives? What age were you really when you looked across the battlefields of war? What age were you really when you showed a nation just what it’s girls were for?
