Track Name: Up
Johnny always knew how to fake his kid brother out
Told him he was an alien on Halloween night
They camped out in the back yard
He pointed up at the sky
And said that a UFO would take him some time.

"Make it up, make it up!
Shut up Johnny, you're always making shit up."
"You'll be sorry when the space ship comes."

Got sent to the principal
Because he wouldn't quit telling lies
He told his classmates all their ships are camouflaged
Green and white
His home was a city made of diamonds
Everyone was invited
Jupiter's air smells like warm fires
And it snows all the time.

"Make it up, make it up!
Shut up Johnny, always making shit up."
"You'll be sorry when the space ship comes."

"You'll make it worse if you keep this up.
Don't make it worse, you're a dreamer."

Then one night, the whole neighborhood
Went out on the street to see
The midnight commotion
All fog and metal and laser beams.

Turns out he was right. Johnny boards the ship.
He will spend his life chasing comet dust
And choking on robot rust.

Johnny's brother runs to the door crying,
"Don't go! Don't go!"
The neighborhood behind him screaming,
"Leave us alone! Leave us alone!"

Johnny tells his brother,

"When you look at Earth from space,
It takes your breath away.
Nobody really belongs here.
It's time to go home."
Track Name: Crazy Horses
I was still a kid when I first fell in love.
It was the only thing that made me want to grow up.

I was just six years old when I learned that I am lazy.
The dogs bark their brains out
It starts to drive me crazy

But I don't move from the window.
I could stare out there all day
Think about the horses, all the days they got away.

You should have seen them run!

Now I'm love with a city girl.
I shot my best friend so I could be with her.
She says everyone she knows dies or goes away.

And now we're running from the cops
And I think we're pretty lost
But I'm never gonna let 'em take me! No way!

I would take the whole country on for you!
I will never let a thing happen to you!
We are getting out of this alive!

Here we go, now...run!
Run!
Leaving hoof prints in the mud
Track Name: My Maracca
You make me space out, baby
You freeze all space and time
You make me space out, baby
You and your black hole eyes

You're gonna be a star
Stars can be suns
Suns can give life
Life can be fun
If you relax, bite your lips and try to have a good time.

There's a lot of glittery things to see in the city
If you squint, the streetlights, the stars and the snow
All blur into one.
My speakers are exploding like bullhorn bombs.

If angels play the harp,
Then the devil plays the drums.

So dance, dance, dance
Get up and make me dance
I dare you to try to make me dance
I'm a robot, baby
Dance, dance, dance
No beat could make me move
Nothing makes me shake but my maracca

But if the dance floor's dark
And the disco ball is shining bright
Then the devil might have me dance with you tonight

You make me think bad things, baby
You've got me out my mind.
You make me shiver, baby
You and your black hole eyes.

So dance, dance, dance
Get up and make me dance
I dare you to try to make me dance
I'm a robot, baby
Dance, dance, dance
No beat could make me move
Nothing makes me shake but my maracca

Shake, shake!
Track Name: Motown Heart
The saddest things in the world
Are snow and rock and roll
Depending on the lighting, you remind me of both

Every song's a love song if you rearrange the words
Every soul is an airplane trying to be a bird

You won't notice I'm gone if I never make a sound
Hang out by the jukebox
I'll be around

I have a confession to make:
I will love you no matter how many pills you take
'Til you can't stand up or look at me straight
'Til I have to carry you home like a bag full of bones
Sucking the icicles out of your eyes.

You won't notice I'm gone if I never make a sound.
Hang out by the jukebox
I'll be around
Stumbling drunk
Who'd have thunk?

You make it bad, so bad sometimes
Babe, you make it bad
Skip me like a record, baby
Skip me like a stone.
You broke my Motown heart.
Track Name: The Tragic Adventures of StarQuake and the WarMaster
Oh my God! What have we done?
There used to be trees planted 'round my heart
Hannah says there are many people who want my head
The tin can birds, they make such a noise!
The noises and the lights! The noises and the lights!
It's too loud and it's too bright!

There are children and dogs everywhere!
The children bark and the dogs they stare
Sledding hills and solar flares
Warm my hands with cigarettes
Ain't been the same since Johnny left
Ain't got no heart! Ain't got no soul!
All we listen to is metal and cellphone tones
And girly-pop rock and roll!

We've made such a mess of this place!
Oh, well! Some day we'll crash into the sun!

These days it hurts a bit more
No one knocks on my see-through door
Sarah takes her medicine
We feed ourselves to Ripple and Theremin
The stars come out, why don't I look at them?
I'm the luckiest man alive! I should have died!
Now every day I wait for some sign to come
That our orbit is off and the way we've spun
Our whole lives is wrong, wrong, wrong.

You see, life is better when it hurts!
Life is better when it hurts!
Life is better with a broken heart!

You can leave me but I'll chase you
Through the galaxy!

I found two snowflakes that were exactly the same.
I fell in love with one and gave the other a name.
Everyone she knows dies or goes away.
Cheer up, my love! Some day we'll crash into the sun!
Track Name: SnowBot
Oh, to be near you
You and your robot glow
Stay with me dear
We'll make our home in the snow

Oh, what a wonderful thing this is!
I know in that mess of wires a heart exists

Oh, what a wonderful thing this could be!
You and your electricity!
In love with me...

You could love me and get all rusty
Darling, won't you trust me?
It's all worth it. You'll see.
Give yourself up and take all of me
We'll work around it.

Me and all my calculations
Lack algorithms for all sensations
But oh! What have my numbers missed?
Could those frosty eyes hide my robot bliss?
Oh, how improbable all this is!
My operating system was not programmed for this!
Oh, the impossibility of circuits, cogs, and logic stuff
Computing something as warm as love...

You could love me and get all rusty
Darling, won't you trust me?
It's all worth it. You'll see.
Give yourself up and take all of me
We'll work around it.

Please don't melt! Don't blow away!
