Track Name: Super Number One Champion!
"Super Number One Champion!" - The Ellie Badge

I wake up every morning in the middle of a fight
Every day i'm getting older but I'm younger every night
I'm an alibi for the young and the restless
and a war cry for the weak and defenseless
We're useless the way we spend our time
but in the dead of night I found a way to fight it
and no one's gonna make it out alive..

Eighteen years, give or take a few
It's been a long, long time. I just thought I'd tell you.
I was gun-shy in the parking lot, I was torn apart,
I nearly ran my mouth off
And it's the same old song but it's a brand new dance
and I'm sure you won't regret it if you give it a chance
So gather up your friends and head for the safe side
Stay right there and wait for the sunrise..

Monsters! Zombies! Robots! and Vampires!
One by one or all at the same time..
I can take'em all 'cause you know who I am!
I'm the Super Number One Champion!

If there's a storm cloud brewing don't worry little fella
You can always stand under my umbrella
If worst comes to worst you know I'm the first
to be right by your side..
Cause there's a lot of things wrong with the world today
I'm gonna do my best, I'm gonna do it my way
and everything will be okay somehow.. someday..

Monsters! Zombies! Robots! and Vampires!
One by one or all at the same time..
I can take'em all 'cause you know who I am!
I'm the Super Number One Champion!

Track Name: Mom Would Be Proud...
"Mom Would Be Proud..."

The world outside is dark, I should be scared
I don't see why I bother.
I see myself as light reflects: I raise my hand
up goes the other.
I watch them as they wave; the hands, they wave
"Aloha!" to adventures
that I had as a child, so young and wild,
I don't see why I hate her..

Tell me the truth.
Let me know what you think about me.
Let me know what you think about..

As for you- so fictional. I've read your tale.
(I never liked the ending)
A script, immortalized within my mind,
I spend too much time reading.
One by one disasters stab into your heart
like tiny needles.
While I will live my life. One day I'll realize that
I don't need her.

Tell me the truth.
Let me know what you think about me.
Let me know what you think about..

..To tell you the truth,
I don't care what you think about me.
I don't care what you think about.
(Go on, get up, and get out of here..)

Track Name: Penelope
"Penelope"

It's one last call for alcohol. You're slow and pressed against the wall.
You said, "Someone's got a passenger and god, I hope it's you!"
Row by row and house by house by even numbers headed South
I even held your hair back while you puked..

And though I've had this feast before, my darling, I do admit for you I'm starving
Living for too long in poverty
And now my heart you do caress, posses my deep and sunken chest
With love every time you look at me

Oh Penelope, are you listening
To the words that flow from the Cemetery?
And will I be in your league when we're underneath?
My dear Penelope..

So just because that didn't really happen, scribbled down on dirty napkins,
Doesn't make it fictional to me.
Between every character I imitate and love song that I emulate
The metaphors, they teach me who to be

Oh Penelope, are you listening
To the words that flow from the Cemetery?
And will I be in your league when we're underneath?
My dear Penelope..

Track Name: Molly
Mechanical Octopi of the Little Lakes in Ypsilanti...


Molly, we were an anomaly
A valiant night with you as my birth right
So tell me, Who do I need to be
to bring you home?

I saw the maze outside the hotel gates
I saw the snow, it looked so cold as it rested on his face.
But "All Work and No Play..." makes every scene the same.
It's one bad joke with such high hopes
but I hope you feel ashamed...
This movie's overrated anyway.

Molly, you were an anomaly
with those three words that you always said to me
I'm pleading, Won't you come back to me?
Just please come home...
(Ah, f*** it. Whatever.)

Molly, you were an anomaly
An uptight b****. You think you're an actress?!
Well, tell me, who do you need to be
to get back your dignity?

Honestly, his shitty poetry is what forced us to disband
(but I don't know why, it's filled with lies and words that he don't understand)
But it's safe to say that everybody knows about your love affair
(with that lame a** little b**** sporting his artsy facial hair)
Oh Molly dear I find it queer that you would fall for such a line
(the same motif he q****ed to paint a piece with his faithful, loving bride)
But you are no different, you fill your lips with clumsy metaphors
(and you steal all of the quotes by John and Paul that I adore)
...but don't you go changin' just for me!

Molly, you were an anomaly
An uptight b****. You think you're an actress?!
Well, tell me, who do you need to be
to get back your dignity?
(and your virginity)

We could've been beautiful in the end. Woah...
If you could've just said "no" to all your f***ing friends

I will debase myself
I'll cover myself in s***
You'll burn for this!
And I will sell my soul
But I will bury you with it...

Lately I've been thinking, maybe you've been thinking too.
You and me belong together and I know you feel it too...

Track Name: Wolverines (Kill All Your Friends)
"Wolverines (Kill All Your Friends)"

It started a few days ago
Tidal waves and hundreds of tornadoes
Then came all the snow...
And I stopped takin' all my medicine last week
When they burned down the pharmacy
We're all goin' crazy...

Cause there's a hole in the sky and it's burnin'
and there's a voice in my head that's been beggin' and yearnin'

Oh oh baby, I got somethin' to tell ya
I'm goin' crazy from all this hysteria
and The last thing that I'm gonna hear before it ends
Is a voice in my head sayin', "Hey...
You should kill all your friends."

Well at that point I think people lost their shit
They're all just fools and hypocrites
But hey! It's ok! They're gonna burn in hell for it
And I think I might be seein' things
with claws and long and shiny teeth
And I'm not sure but I think they might be coming for me...

...But if I send you all back to sleep
Then who would be awake to come and save me from the wolverines?!

Oh oh baby, I got somethin' to tell ya
I'm goin' crazy from all this hysteria
and The last thing that I'm gonna hear before it ends
Is a voice in my head sayin', "Hey...
You should kill all your friends."

Sometimes I think it'd be worth it
Deep down I know they deserve it
A little flesh here, a little blood there
At the end of the world would anyone really care?

Oh oh baby I got something to tell ya...
Oh god, do I have something to tell ya!
