Track Name: Gray
I'm disappointing
My jokes are bad
My life is sad
My grandfather's always mad

I'm living a mess
But if you said yes
I confess
You'd be a blessing to me

Kind of a bore
Sore in the heart
Guess that I need a new start
Oh, maybe you could help me settle the score

I was a broken wreck
Just hammerin' on through life 'til I met you
But oh, the earth stood still
Oh darling, what could I do?
You sewed me right back together when the world sawed me in two
Buttercup, you patched me up
It's not not enough
I need ya every single day
If that's okay

This life is cruel
My friends are tools
Got nothin' to depend upon

But the golden rule
Is we're all fools in love
So c'mon, c'mon

The universe hates me more than you know
So, baby, I need you to soften the blow
Once more
Please, settle the score

I was a broken wreck
Just hammerin' on through life 'til I met you
But oh, the earth stood still
Oh darling, what could I do?
You sewed me right back together when the world sawed me in two
Buttercup, you patched me up
It's not not enough
I need ya every single day
If that's okay

I thought I was a bad seed, it's true
But everything's comin' up roses with you

I thought I was a bad seed, it's true
But everything's comin' up roses with you

I was a broken wreck
Just hammerin' on through life 'til I met you
But oh, the earth stood still
Oh darling, what could I do?
You sewed me right back together when the world sawed me in two
Buttercup, you patched me up
It's not not enough
I need ya every single day
If that's okay
Track Name: Rick
When it's dark outside
I'll walk you home
When the work gets hard
It's you and me
And the chickens in the yard

I've got a yen for protectin' the hens in my roost
So let me introduce you to
The man who will take care of you

If you're peckish for some love
You can come peckin' at more door
I am more than qualified to adore you
My amour
I'll scoop you off to a coop for one, two, three, and for you
I'd endure
Practically anything

When you're feeling faint
I'll keep you safe
When you sneeze or sniffle
No piffle allowed
Just pillows that feel like a cloud

A rooster's task is to perform all that is asked of him
I'll go out on a limb before you can inquire

If you're peckish for some love
You can come peckin' at more door
I am more than qualified to adore you
My amour
I'll scoop you off to a coop for one, two, three, and for you
I'd endure
Practically anything

I'll be here for you
I'll stay by your side
I won't turn tail and flee like he did

If you're peckish for some love
You can come peckin' at more door
I am more than qualified to adore you
My amour
I'll scoop you off to a coop for one, two, three, and for you
I'd endure
Practically anything
Track Name: Cliff
I've heard what they've said
He lives in his head
His wallet's bled out and instead of the man that I wanted to be
I'm afraid
And shying away
Wandering, wandering, wandering aimlessly

I've heard what they say,
"He came here alone and he's quiet;
easily passed by," and
I heard what he said,
"He doesn't have many friends yet,
but I bet you could be there for him."

You said relax and just like that
The calm came to weather the storm inside of me
Don't hide you say
I'm here to shoulder the pain
I'm standing in the mess I made
Do you think you can love what remains?

You say
My smile is luminous
You have so much to do with this change, this pride
I'm surprised
I thought I'd be nervous but I think that I'm unnerved at how
Easy it is to look in your eyes
I'm not shaky or scared of all of the love that I find there

They say, "He's walking taller now;
he's louder, he's out of his shell,"
They can tell just how well
You've been there to shoulder the pain
I'm standing in the mess I made
Do you think you can love what remains?

Your lovely hands keep me steady
I'm ready to let go

We tidied up the mess I made
And now I know I'm not afraid
Storms were made to weather
Hand in hand we'll shoulder the pain
Together
Track Name: Doctor
She comes to the clinic everyday
Each time with a different complain
Her symptoms I separately recognize, oh
But together, I just don't know

Her pulse is racing, face is flushed
Blood is rushing and her heart is beating way too fast
I'm aghast, it just doesn't add up
For these problematic symptoms maybe medicine won't be enough

She needs love, love, love, love, love
500 mgs stat
A healthy dose can cure her sickness just like that
Sweet bedside manner's all she needs, sir
And love, love, love, love, love

My diagnosis is blank
I mean to be perfectly frank
In all of my practice I've never seen
A patient with signs that mean nothing to me

My heart is racing, blood is rushed
Why is her face so flushed?
What could it be? I just haven't a clue
My PhD certainly didn't prepare me for you

She needs love, love, love, love, love
500 mgs, stat
A healthy dose can cure her sickness just like that
Sweet bedside manner's all she needs, sir
And love, love, love, love, love

I stayed up browsing every almanac and journal
And out of the blue
While thinking of you
My stomach felt strange
My chest felt tight
My face it flushed and
Achoo!
I think I came down with it, too

He needs love, love, love, love, love
500 mgs, stat
A healthy dose can cure his sickness just like that
Sweet bedside manner's all he needs, for sure
And love, love, love, love, love
Track Name: Kai
(Don't you wanna stay?)

I've gotta feel the sand between my toes
Don't care where my ship goes
As long as it's sailin' into brand new salty seas and sun
Yeah, I'm just havin' fun
A kid on the run from a home nobody knows

But you with your goofy smile
That stutters stay a while
With your roots dug deep in the ground
And you with your twinkling laugh
You know you're never going back
But when fall comes, I'm turning around

Yeah, when the leaves change, baby, I'll be out at the dock
Wadin' out into the world before it's six o'clock
And I'll say, "Gee golly, what a summer I had!"
I'll be glad
'Cuz the second I leave shore I'm sure I'm sure
I'm not comin' back

(Don't you wanna stay?)

I've gotta feel the sea beneath my feet
God, I swear I wanna be
Anywhere but ol' M.T. sounds perfect to me
But now, somethin' in me twists
When I think of what I miss
Each time I hightail it out

On you, rakin' leaves in fall
I think about it all the time
When I'm somewhere out in the blue
So far from where you are
Snuggled up in the snow with who knows
But that's just how it goes

So when the leaves change, baby, I'll be out at the dock
Wadin' out into the world before it's six o'clock
And I'll say, "Gee golly, what a summer I had!"
Not too bad
But the second I leave shore I'm sure I'm sure
I'm not comin' back

(Don't you wanna stay?)

I'll forget about fireworks and laughter
(Stay, stay, stay, stay, stay)
I can snuff out our happily ever after
This how it goes
This is the life I chose
This is all I've known
(Come home, come home, come home, come home, come home)

Okay, I think I wanna stay
I think I wanna stay

So when the sun rises, baby, I'll be out at the dock
Leapin' back into your arms before it's six o'clock
I'll look back and think, "Golly, what a life that we had!"
I'll be glad
'Cuz the second I'm by your side, oh
I'm sure I'm sure I'm sure I'm sure
I'm sure I'm sure I'm sure I'm sure
I'm sure I'm sure I'm sure
I'm not goin' back

I think I wanna stay, don't you wanna stay?
Track Name: Won
A beautiful house deserves a beautiful vase
Only 5,000 G
Irreplaceably and irrevocably useful
And paid in cash to me

You need this vase
Anyone can see
So cough it up, hand it to me
A steal for 5,000 G

Gee, you look like you need some rare magic apples
Only 500 G
Sensationally sweet and especially
Paid in cash to me

You can pick just one
Doesn't matter which
Not that they're not fundamentally different and not AT ALL the same apple marketed differently because of course not why would I do that to you?!
A steal for 500 G

(sweet kazoo solo)

A beautiful girl deserves a husband like me
Absolutely free
Just a blue feather and the biggest reward
For customer loyalty

I won't live with you
Or cook you food
But you know you love me enough
To do this for absolutely free
Track Name: Kappa
Annoying human
Comes everyday with an offering for me
She is dumb and I wish that she would just
Leave me alone

Annoying human
Please don't come back here
I hate company
Cucumbers are tasty
But seriously,
Just leave me alone

Annoying human
Throws a blue feather
Into my lake
She is dumb and I hate her so now we
Are getting married
Track Name: Gourmet
My life would be a yawn
Without Boeuf Bourgogne
I would travel as far as I can
To taste the greatest coq au vin

I thought there was nothing finer
Than dining on wine and brie
But there's never been a daintier delicacy than you, ma cherie

I could hardly hide my awe
After my first taste of seared foie gras
No words could I say
About the texture and taste of cheese soufflé

My cup is filled to the brim with ennui
If no more can I mange my ratatouille
But not as I blue as I feel each meal
Without you, ma cherie

Is there a flavor more parfait than a delightful peach flambé
Though I hardly know
Any pastry or gateau
That is sweeter than you, my darling petite chou

A five star gourmet am I
But when we say goodbye
It's the most bitter flavor I have ever known

Although it sounds cliche
I'd trade the tastiest poulet
For the day when I could come home
