Extinction 03:40
Feel the tension, the apprehension As we draw a little closer to our pensions Every now and again I still like to pretend That the end is still off in the distance We're aging in the age of here and now Fossils in the making making sounds Days are numbered, clocks are ticking down We’re headed for extinction when the time runs out Seize the day, don’t let it pass you by We’re headed for extinction, but we still have time Got your attention! We're on a mission! And I'm making an executive decision We'll settle down in a bit, but I don't want to quit Till a comet destroys all existence We're aging in the age of here and now Fossils in the making making sounds

Do your best, this one is hard Not looking good, your game is off There's danger up ahead That's just the way it is Over and over and over again Over land, across the sea Another life is waiting there for me You made it through the tricky part But level two is even worse And farther up ahead The harder it will get Over and over and over again Over land, across the sea Another life is waiting there for me Look out! Head’s up! Move it! Through it! Then again, and again! Overcome! You can win! Over land, across the sea I will try, but I will die Another life, it waits for me The other side, is where I'll be

She is rarely seen as more than ordinary at all Yeah, but I like the way she's looking when she's making her telephone calls She's got it all I got it bad She's holding off I'm going mad She's the only one I see 'Cause she's no ordinary girl, yeah The kind of book I'd like to read Not like the cover of a magazine Cool on the surface I'm so nervous And I wonder if she don't care But hey, I got no money If she hugs me Then I know that means she does care She's got it all I got it bad She's holding off And I'm going mad She's the only one I see 'Cause she's no ordinary girl yeah The kind of book I'd like to read Not like the cover of a magazine Yeah, she don’t know what she’s doing Yeah, I’m so attracted to it, And I don’t want to ruin it She's the only one I see… 'Cause she's extraordinary She's got it all Yeah she's got it all

Yoo Hoo 03:38
I’ve wandered through These empty rooms When did this scenic view Become an empty tomb? This heart’s a hole My telephone Rings a hollow tone I’m here but not at home Everything gets better So apart but so together Except that we are never ever in the same room We both pursue What we want to do Life is for taking, so You got to taking hold Airplane to France My circumstance It kept me here at home I’ll keep the lights turned on I can’t stand the miles Continents are made for drifting away I think it’s time At least we tried is what I want us to say

Oregon 03:15
I've been in the woods Considering the shoulds And wondering if I could Without a net Timbers coming down Do they make a sound If I'm the one around To vouch for it? I've been thinking over lately That you and I should waste some time If I ever get back from Oregon The guy who pumped my gas Said to make it last Cause if you go too fast You'll pay for it Running to this state Another big mistake The only kind I make Comes 'round again I've been thinking over lately That you and I should waste some time If I ever get back…. About as far as I could get From what I really wanted Afraid of how the way I felt would change the future moment There is nowhere I can hide away Truth is, I don't want to anyway Ran across the country to the shore Just to get back where I was before I've been thinking over lately You and I should waste some time If I ever get back from Oregon

Can we just skip the pleasantries? I don’t pick up on subtleties Why do we always have to dance and dance around the thing? Why can’t you just say what you mean? Let is all out Just shoot from the hip, your head and your heart Loose the arrows, my friend If it’s real, I can take it But I need for this to start This is a plea for clarity I’m putting my cards down here on the table for all to see Let is all out Just shoot from the hip, your head and your heart Loose the arrows, my friend If it’s real, I can take it But I need for this to start I never did so well At walking over egg shells Come on put your feet down And tell me how you feel now Let it all out… Let it all out Just shoot from the hip, your head and your heart If we don’t do this right now Our story’s gonna end before the best part Let it all out Loose the arrows, my friend If it’s real, I can take it But I need for this to start Even if it falls apart

B-Side 02:17
I like the way you talk I like the way you move And when I see you walk I’m telling you the truth That if I had three wishes I’d use them all on you But you don’t have a clue You’ve never heard my song You always want to choose To put the single on But there’s a different tune And I’ve been here all along Flip the record over you’ll be happy to discover Sometimes the b side shines and besides… Everybody wants to find the diamond in the rough Well, I’m waiting here for you If you look on side two So if you want to talk, And if you want to move If you’d care to walk to a slightly different groove If you want to go, just know that I do, too. All those other ones, they don’t sound like me Sometimes a deeper cut is exactly what you need So flip the record over and you’ll see what I mean
8.
Video Games 04:09
I won’t mention all the attention I’m not getting every day ‘Cause I know that you’ve got some things to do, Got some plans to make There is nothing else to do There is nothing left to say Gonna stay here in my room Close the door and start to play Everything is firmly under control Inside my video games Conversations heard in the hallway Yeah these walls are paper thin Once you told me love was a hard thing You’ll never have to tell me that again I think the hardest part Is knowing there is not A button I can press to start this over There is nothing else to do There is nothing left to say Gonna stay here in my room You won't miss me anyway Everything is spinning out of control Outside my video games

Fire up the band! The cycle never ends They're in on all the trends So folks will tell their friends Keep your ear to the ground Breathe it in, blow it out again Everybody hold on tight 'Cause it's gonna be a real short ride And when they change their minds You're the next best thing, all right! Watch it all ascend The arrow never bends! Yeah they're getting lots of hits And high-fiving with their friends But when the kids turn around Trade it in, Throw it out again It's a shame! It's a shame Nobody ever grades you on consistency Oh, but consistently, you've been standing right next to me Everybody hold on tight Cause it's gonna be a real short ride And when they change their minds you're the next best thing Fire up the band! You're the next best thing Here we go again! You're the next best thing Here we go again! You’re the next best thing in town

Sometimes, I don’t want to go out The music’s too dull, and it’s way too loud Sometimes, it sounds like fun To be at home with pajamas on Somebody call the doctor, ‘Cause I think I’m in a crisis While everything is speeding up, I’m putting on the brakes Can’t wait ‘til the sun goes down I need some life right now Things aren’t what they used to be And change comes so frequently I’m waiting for the roof to cave Is there enough to save? What am I supposed to be? I hope to find out eventually Some days, I kind of want to freak out Not really sure what the story’s about Some folks seem to want to be mad When what they’ve got isn’t what they had Somebody call a lawyer ‘Cause I need to confess While everyone is wanting more, I’m happier with less Pictures on the beach Always on my screen Everyone’s lying But maybe we’re trying
11.
Salad Days 02:08
Bright lights and Friday nights Hung out at the square Five bucks and worn out Chucks Took us anywhere Those were the salad days When nothing was in our way Never again the same Those were the salad days Skipped school and broke the rules Just getting by Cheap amps and skateboard ramps Kept us occupied Those were the salad days When nothing was in our way Never again the same Those were the salad days In our minds those were simpler times So let's rewind and see what we find Those were the salad days When nothing was in our way Never again the same Those were the salad days
12.
'92 03:58
Don’t want to hear about the west coast There is nothing new to say The talk of desert roads Destinations we don’t know We won’t go, so it’s pointless anyway Waves are crashing on the beach People laughing, slurring speech Somewhere past the blue horizon The sun is setting in the east Shadows growing at our feet Night is creeping up behind us Don’t want to talk about the old days Just some useless memories Castles in the sand Were fun to make with our own hands We should have put them where the tide could never be Nothing there but open road All we had to do was go Now it’s way too late to make the day grow longer
