Homestretch 03:27
WAKE UP, MAX. PLANETFALL COMENSE IN T-MINUS 2 MINUTES I am waking up again After years in outer space The autopilot disengaged I had fled the curs-ed earth With a handful of my mates The only souls to have escaped Everybody else is gone I guess we are the chosen ones Ascending to the heavens And we don't know why they picked us to go on to the stars We've come so far and now we're landing No one knows what we will find When we finally arrive Descending into hell or are we about to regain paradise? The engines die We're calmly falling Here we are approaching the home stretch Have I learned to stick the landing yet? THRUSTERS ENGAGED The ground comes racing up at us It's shining green and blue Just like the one we knew The atmosphere is screaming in our ears We can see signs of liii-i-i-ife But something isn't right Haven't we been here before? Have we all been misinformed? We were told that we were on a mission to find a home for us all as we fall There's no more denying the world beneath us Now the doors are open wide Step onto the earth that died "Oh my God, I'm home! I'm back! You maniacs! You blew it up! God damn you all to hell!" Here we are approaching the home stretch Have we learned to stick the landing yet?

*Ding-dong!* We just saw the moving van and We thought that we would come Give you a big introduction (and jam!) Yes, the jam that Steve made To welcome you into our town May we come into your lovely new home? Oh, we can? Then there's something that YOU SHOULD KNOW: Kindly keep your garlic cloves Stored in airtight containers Please keep your cross inside your home And your silverware locked in the basement because We are the north beach vampires We'd love if you would come on over for a BITE We are the north beach vampires Or we could eat at your place with a formal invite So why don't let us inside? We thought we'd stop by again and see how You're liking your new place We haven't seen much of you since The night you invited us over for... "stakes" It was very insensitive and We don't mean to say that you discriminate But here are some things you can do to improve Before IT'S TOO LATE: Your eldest daughter's gothic clothes appropriate our culture The halloween decorations on your lawn... no, they're not offensive But they're still up in december! We are the north beach vampires And we want to get along We're never looking for a fight We are the north beach vampires Treat us fair or we will have to make it right And come back over here tonight

The sun never sets on the empire that I defend And your rules have no affect The law's for everybody else Because I'm above the rest You know I dress to impress If you take aim at my white suit there'll be red I've got gadgets galore A billion dollars and more And the power to walk if you wind up dead I have carte blanche to do whatever I want I've got a license to kill My badge and gun mean that you cannot stop me And we both know that nobody will I took an oath to serve, uphold and to protect The world from those who oppose the authority I represent I deserve your respect You know I dress to distress If you take aim at my blue suit There'll be red Call it willful neglect But if you try to protest Move when I say or you will wind up dead I have carte blanche to do whatever I want I've got a license to kill My badge and gun mean that you cannot stop me And we both know that nobody will And everyone knows That when the gun goes off You tried to call my bluff And everyone knows we've got it all Though we still want more because The world is not enough The world is not enough

MAX: Hey man, this is a rockin' party The entire block has turned up / is turnt up Hey, has anyone here seen Johnny? He won't be all that hard to spot Because he wears shorts every day of the year You wouldn't catch him wearin pants if he is here I bet you not MIKE: Did anybody see that guy out side who isn't wearing any pants? I didn't see him but he's infamous, at least that's what I just heard from Max Maybe he jogs every single day? I think his name is John, I heard someone say something kinda like that THE NEWS ANCHOR: You know, I don't get invited to many of these parties because I'm a news anchor I think I see him through the rear window Pass it on, pass it on, pass it on I know that I got clear info Pass it on, pass it on, pass it on TYLER: This party's gettin' outa control You know Mike? He just told me a fact: There's a guy out side who took off his clothes and then he jogged down the street and ran back I heard his name is Tom, and that he's famous too What a crazy thing for a celeb to do Really, who'd do that? I didn't see him myself, I was late, It was a near miss though Pass it on, pass it on, pass it on Just a little weird info Pass it on, pass it on, pass it on JOHNNY: Did you hear? That a celebrity streaker Crashed the party and then he stripped No I didn't see it with my own two eyes But Tyler knows someone else who did Apparently some actor was off his meds My money's on Tom Cruise if I had to bet When will they commit him? THE NEWS ANCHOR: Whatever you say, it's off the record They said he had his rear... exposed Pass it on, pass it on, pass it on Yeah he must have some severe syndrome Pass it on, pass it on, pass it on THE NEWS ANCHOR: Tom Cruise was arraigned today on charges of public indecency after multiple attendees at a block part reported seeing him yelling and running naked through their Bel Air neighborhood. Cruise's law firm denies these allegations. Is this a viral advertisement for Mission Impossible 9? Let's go to our entertainment correspondent for more on this developing story...

Chupacabra 03:45
There's something in the darkness And it's staring back at you But you can't let it out And I can't get it out For you There's something right behind you And it knows you through and through And you could let it out If you said it aloud I know that you would want me to It has teeth Sunk into you viens Driving you insane But once you've seen it's face NOW! YOU! KNOW! THE! CHUPACABRA! Chupacabra, why you gotta bring me down? So put on your set of armor And you'll make a bad excuse Why you can't make the date You'll find something to say But the truth But when you see it's shadow And there's nothing you can do But to hide in plain sight With your eyes open wide Everyone can see ??? hunting you We can see That you are ashamed But your not to blame No one knows you paiiiiin.... BUT! THE! CHUPACABRA! Chupacabra, why you gotta bring me down? The thing about the beast That follows you all day Is you could make it he(e|a)l If you would only say it's name THE! CHUPACABRA! Chupacabra, why you gotta bring me down?

People ask "How do you do it Max?" Listen close and I'll give you the facts People ask "How do you do it Max?" Well I'll tell you the truth But it won't be much use To you now First thing that you gotta do is Fire every single one of your muses (Unless they happen to be me) Next you delete all your music God knows you're never gonna use it So go and snap all your CDs *snap* Next step, hardest yet This is the part where you play hard to get so just Go pull that phone cord out the wall Get rid of your instruments That's the only way that you can not be tempted to Break a string or break your heart Oh these are the steps to take If you wanna walk in my shoes Oh these are all my mistakes I made them So can you! People ask "How do you do it Max?" Listen close and I'll give you the facts People ask "How do you do it Max?" Well I'll tell you the truth But it won't be much use To you now Now wait a solid decade then Look in the mirror and slap your face and Go out and join a band But next, and this parts essential, Never play a show and start to go mental So then you hatch up a plan Build a room in your house Where you can go to scream and shout and learn Just what it takes to be a star Buy back all of your instruments and then Jump in and hit submit and go Break a string or break some hearts Oh these are the steps to take If you wanna walk in my shoes Oh these are all my mistakes I made them So can you! People ask "How do you do it Max?" Listen close and I'll give you the facts People ask "How do you do it Max?" Well I'll tell you the truth But it won't be much use To you now

This Is Fine 02:55
I need someone to say "You're done. Pencils down. Hand in what you got... or get out" I need deadlines or I will always tinker and While away my time without you If you gave a month I know I'd get less done Than if I had an hour or two So tell me or I'll go too far "This is fine." "This is fine." Tell me time after time after time "This is fine." "This is fine." At there end of the day I need someone to say "This is fine."
