Track Name: Sean
His name was Sean
He did me wrong
He sold me prawns
And he moved on

He moved on
So I wrote this song
In his crayons
And I'm datin' his mom

I'm datin' his mom

Those darn tiger prawns
Are in the waterways
We've got to round them up
And send them on their way

Penaeus monodon
Coming our way from the East
Put them on ice in your fridge
And neutralize the beast

I'm the crustacean king
And I know everything
About maternal flings
And wedding rings

Prawns in the sound
Get him back to this town
And when he's around
It's goin' down

It's goin' down

Datin' Sean's mom
She's the queen of the prawns
Am I just a pawn
What have I spawned

I should have known that they were prawns
They were way too long
But I keep buyin' prawns
And I know it's wrong

Sean
You did me wrong
And the tiger prawns
Keep comin' on

Sean
It won't be long
You'll be eaten up
By what you've spawned

Sean
Track Name: Cupcake Man
I eat a cupcake when I'm walkin' through the door
I eat a cupcake when I'm lyin' on the floor
There's a cupcake in the kitchen, don't you know
You can have it but you have to let me know

'Cause I'm a cupcake man
I'm gonna eat a cupcake
I'm a cupcake man
I'm gonna eat a cupcake

Someday I'll have a cupcake store
I wouldn't want for cupcakes anymore
I'll have a mixer and a knife for my icing
Oh my cupcake store, it would be so enticing

How will I know
What kind to make
There are so many kinds
For heaven's sake

I'm a cupcake man (how I love 'em)
I'm gonna make a cupcake
I'm a cupcake man (from the oven)
I'm gonna make a cupcake

Every cupcake you'll ever imagine
It won't be enough
Lay off of that stuff

Every cupcake you give to the world
Is a cupcake of love
A miraculous pearl

Cupcake man (how I love 'em)
I'm gonna make a cupcake
I'm a Cupcake man (by the dozen)
I'm gonna make a cupcake if I can
Track Name: Brothers of Maps
Brothers of maps, brothers of maps
Be gone
Brothers of maps, brothers of maps
Be gone

Northwest took its chances on the trade of sugar cane
Northeast made alliances with the Algonquin
Southeast had access to the bay
Southwest disappeared into the Old Dominion

Brothers of maps, brothers of maps
Be gone
Brothers of maps, brothers of maps
Stay strong

Brothers of maps, who could they be
Brothers of maps of Washington, D.C.
Brothers of maps, who could they be
Brothers of maps, they are you and me

Brothers of maps, brothers of maps
Be gone
Brothers of maps, brothers of maps
Stay strong

In the year of 2012 the brothers rose again
To exorcise the Pentagon of every bloody sin
The fountains all overflowed with hundred-dollar gin
And generals were liberated to walk among their fellow men
Track Name: Palimpsest
What's the worth, the worth to you
Semblance of truth
Dusty palimpsest
It gets so hard to digest

Can't write over the way you looked
When the sun was bare and the fish was hooked
The chance was near and the water rose
Over the path you took, I was the one you chose

But now no one knows

What's the worth, the worth to you
Of a better attitude
An inclination toward the sun
Going on fooling everyone

What's the worth, the worth to you
Semblance of truth
Dusty palimpsest
It gets so hard to digest

And I could read you the book we wrote
But it's better closed on a minor note
Words are new, meanings different now
And I can't remember anyhow

Where anything grows

What's the worth, the worth to you
Of a better attitude
An inclination toward the sun
Going on fooling everyone
Track Name: Jellyfish in a Black Hole
Jellyfish gets younger as the days go by
It's aging backward, turritopsis dohrnii
Through its noble simplicity
Could we achieve immortality

Jellyfish in a black hole
Jellyfish in a black hole
Jellyfish in a black hole
Jellyfish in a black hole

Black holes growing way out in space
Maybe one's expanding somewhere near this place
Don't get too close or you could slip away
Oh how embarrassing; what would the neighbors say

Jellyfish in a black hole
Jellyfish in a black hole
Jellyfish in a black hole
Jellyfish in a black hole

You see me slowing down
And I don't know it
To me it's all the same
And I don't show it
I don't see any jellyfish
In this hole I'm in
Gonna have to learn to fall
While I forget to swim

Shedding off the years while it's floating in the sea
Jellyfish can solve the most vexing mystery
I'd like to know the secret so death could not detain us
But I'm not sure how I feel about my mouth becoming my anus

Jellyfish in a black hole
Jellyfish in a black hole
Jellyfish in a black hole
Jellyfish in a black hole

Got it, got it, got it, got it
