    "Everything about this album is just super!" - Julian's Mom

    Actually, she didn't say that...I made up that quote just now. I thought it would be funny to feature a quote from my Mom. Was it funny at all? Oh god, I probably just ruined the joke by breaking the fourth wall...didn't I??...

    Um, this is a really good album. It's my second album. The second one that I made. It's an album. It's much much better than the first album. Because it's the second one. My second album. It hsd a lot of good songs on it so listen to it FOR PETE'S SAKE ALREADY

Track Name: Baby Owls
Hear me out: I got too much time to sit around
I don't doubt you have little time to settle down
What about something new to cure your frown?
Baby owls in the rafters above just hangin' out!

Baby owls
Track Name: Lucky Rabbit's Foot
I didn't used to think, but I think a lot now
About the house in which I live
Someone built it on solid ground
So the structure doesn't cave in

I didn't used to wonder but I wonder aloud
I hope you're listening
I've got your lucky rabbit's foot
Yeah, I keep it hidden

Got your lucky rabbit's foot

I used to believe but I don't believe now
That I could have made you stay
You've got your own reasons...
There is no need to explain

I always used to hope, and I hope a lot now
Hope that you'll return here someday
I've got your lucky rabbit's foot...
With any luck, we'll celebrate!

You left town and I just hung around
Thinking I would mail you back your stuff
But you never even asked for it once
It looks like you just might be in luck

You left town and I just hung around
Thinking I would mail you back your stuff
But you never even asked for it once
My friend, you just might be in luck

Got your lucky rabbit's foot
Track Name: Poor Little Cinderella
Poor little Cinderella, hair tied up in braids
Wears a shirt upon her chest and coal upon her face
Poor little Cinderella, will she ever know
The Prince is a hermaphrodite with skin as white as snow

Oh, little Cindy, you're stuck in your 2D world
Your only friends are mice and birds!
Isn't that absurd? Don't you feel disturbed??

Poor little Cinderella hangs from farmer's twine
Legs dangling from the chandelier
Will she one day be mine, will she one day be mine?
Track Name: Wake Up Darling
I'll sleep in the bathtub
I'll sleep in the rain
I'll sleep any-god-damn-knows-where-else
And won't complain

Oh my baby, she does the same
She sleeps down in that same old drain
Every night and every day
Until the cold chills make her wake
And everybody says she's asleep
So wake up darling!
Wake up darling!

I'll sleep in the hallway
I'll sleep in a booth
I'll sleep in a hay covered loft
In a run-down chicken coop

Oh my baby, she does the same
Until the girl can't stand the pain
Every night and every day
Until the cold chills make her wake
And everybody says she's asleep
So wake up darling!
Wake up darling!

Wake up darling, everybody says you're asleep!
Track Name: Believe It and It Will Be True
Tearing up the old cliches
Of this dimension
I'm looking for a miracle but
Somehow finding misdirection
Running round in circles gets me
Nothing but the worst attention
Fate, she always screws me
And I never think to wear protection

I'm telling you, there's nothing else that you can do
If you fall in love with me, I'll fall in love with you
I promise you, believe it and it will be true
You can feel it in your heart, yes it burns inside of you!

Your words are in my head
I think you might have brought on this infection
I understand the dialect but
Can't decipher your inflection
I want to take you home with me
And add you to my private collection
But if you disagree, can you
Point me in a new direction?

I'm telling you, there's nothing else that you can do
If you fall in love with me, I'll fall in love with you
I promise you, believe it and it will be true
You can feel it in your heart, yes it burns inside of you!

Your words are in my head
I think you might have brought on this infection...
Track Name: Rx
Darling, you know it's true
I only care about you
I only care about you

Darling, when I see your face
I can not look away
I only care about you
I only care about you

Darling, want to give you a hug
I want to buy you your drugs
I only care about you

Darling, I want to show you love
I can not get enough
I only care about you
I only care about you

Looking at the stars, it's so obvious
That we're still alive yet oblivious to all around

As long as you ask me what's on my mind
You'll always get the same answer, hear the same sound

I only care about you
I want to buy your drugs
I only care about you
Track Name: Old Louisiana Shack
Baby do you want to go back
To the old Louisiana shack?
We can sit down, go around back
And eat all the apples off the rack

We can walk down by the train tracks
And talk about the knowledge that we lack
Or federal income tax, waking, baking,
Waning, waxing...or something like that

If your skin is pearly white, come with me tonight!
Louisiana shack!

If you feel a Mac Attack
You can buy one in a snap
We can fool around a bit in the sack
Or smoke a bit of crack

We can walk down by the train tracks
And talk about the knowledge that we lack
Or federal income tax, waking, baking,
Waning, waxing...or something like that

If your skin is pearly white, come with me tonight!
Louisiana shack!
Track Name: Suddenly I Am Reborn!
Well it looks like twenty-thousand years ago
I was a minion to a warlord named Gibraltar
With a great axe and reputation

Suddenly I am reborn
A tuna fish or an acorn
Suddenly I am reborn!

Well it looks like twenty-thousand seconds ago
I was sleeping in a cradle upon the ocean
Fending off those hungry sharks

Suddenly I am reborn
A tuna fish or an acorn
Suddenly I am reborn!
Track Name: The Master of My Heart
Baby I love you, baby I need you
I was head over heels right from the start
If we're together, even if we're apart
You will be the master of my heart!

Come what may, our love will last a lifetime
Come and stay, come stay with me tonight!
If we're together, or if we're apart
You will be the master of my heart!

(Totally awesome guitar solo)

Baby I want you, baby I have you
You were stuck in my head right from the start
When we're together or when we're apart
You will be the master of my heart!

Come what may, our love will last a lifetime
Come and stay, come stay with me tonight!
We'll be together, never to part
You will be the master of my heart!
Oh, you will be the master of my heart!
Track Name: Physical
I'm saying all the things that I know you'll like
Making good conversation
I gotta handle you just right
If you know what I mean
I took you to an intimate restaurant
Then to a suggestive movie
There's nothin' left to talk about
Unless it's horizontally

Let's get physical
I wanna get physical
Let's get into physical
Let me hear your body talk
Let me hear your body talk

Well I've been patient, I've been good
Tried to keep my hands on the table
It's gettin' hard, this holdin' back
If you know what I mean
I'm sure you'll understand my point of view
We know each other mentally
You gotta know that you're bringin' out
The animal in me!

Let's get physical
I wanna get physical
Let's get into physical
Let me hear your body talk
Let me hear your body talk

Let's get animal
I wanna get animal
Let's get into animal
Let me hear your body talk
I want to hear your body talk!
