My name is Jonas
I'm carrying the wheel
Thanks for all you've shown us
But this is how we feel
Come sit next to me
Pour yourself some tea
Just like grandma made
When we couldn't find sleep
Things were better then
Once but never again
We've all left the den
Let me tell you 'bout it
The choo-choo train left right on time
A ticket cost only your mind
Driver said "Hey man, we go all the way"
Of course we were willing to pay
My name is wepeel
I gotta box full of your toys
They're fresh out of batteries
But they're still makin' noise
Tell me what to do
Now the tank is dry
Now this wheel is flat
And you know what else?
Guess what I received
In the mail today
Words of deep concern
From my little brother
The building's not goin' as planned
The foreman has injured his hand
The dozer will not clear a path
The driver swears he learned his math
The workers are goin' home! (x4)
Yeah!
The workers are goin' home! (x3)
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
My name is Jonas

My girl's got a big mouth
With which she blabbers a lot
She laughs at most everything
Whether it's funny or not
And if you see her
Tell her it's over now

[Chorus]
I want a girl who will laugh for no one else
When I'm away she puts her makeup on the shelf
When I'm away she never leaves the house
I want a girl who laughs for no one else

My girl's got eyeballs
In the back of her head
She looks around and around
You know it makes me sad to see her like that
Please don't believe her, she says that for anyone
And if you see her
Tell her its hey hey hey hey

[Chorus]

And if you see her
Tell her it's over now
And if you watch her go
Watch her, watch her, watch her, watch her!

[Chorus]

The world has turned and left me here
Just where I was before you appeared
And in your place, an empty space
Has filled the void behind my face
I just made love with your sweet memory
One thousand times in my head
You said you loved it more than ever
You said
You remain, turned away
Turning further every day
I talked for hours to your wallet photograph
And you just listened
You left enchanted by my intellect
Or maybe you didn't
Do you believe what I sing now?

Your tongue is twisted, your eyes are slit,
You need a Guardian.

The sea is foamin' like a bottle of beer
The wave is comin but I ain't got no fear
I'm waxin' down so that I'll go real fast
I'm waxin' down because it's really a blast
I'm goin' surfin cuz I don't like your face
I'm bailin' out because I hate the race
of rats that run round and round in the maze
I'm goin' surfin', I'm goin' surfin'!
You take your car to work
I'll take my board
And when you run out of fuel
I'm still afloat
My buddies and their homies all come along
They seem invincible as they surf along
The sea is rollin' like a thousand pound keg
We're goin' surfin', we're goin' surfin!
All along the undertow is strengthening it's hold
I never thought it'd come to this
Now I can never go home

Oh, yeah.
Alright.

Somebody's Heine' is crowdin' my icebox.
Somebody's cold one is givin' me chills.
Guess I'll just close my eyes.

Oh, yeah.
Alright.
Feels good... inside.

Flip on the tele'.
Wrestle with Jimmy.
Something is bubbling
Behind my butt.
The bottle is ready to blow.

[chorus]
Say it ain't so.
Your drug is a heartbreaker.
Say it ain't so.
My love is a life taker.


I can't confront you.
I never could do
That which might hurt you.
So try and be cool
When I say
This way is a waterslide away from me to take you further everyday.
Be cool.

[chorus]

Dear Daddy,
I write you in spite of years of silence.
You've cleaned up, found Jesus, things are good, or so I hear.
This bottle of Steven's awakens ancient feelings.
Like father, step-father, the son is drowning in the flood.

Yeah... yeah, yeah... yeah, yeah...

[chorus]

I've got the Dungeon Master's Guide
I've got a 12-sided die
I've got Kitty Pryde
and Nightcrawler too
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do
I've got my favorite rock group Kiss
I've got Ace Frehley
I've got Peter Criss
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do
In the garage
I feel safe
No one cares about my ways
In the garage
Where I belong
No one hears me sing this song
In the garage
I've got an electric guitar
I play my stupid song
I write these stupid words
and I love every one
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do

Let's go away for a while
You and I
To a strange and distant land
Where they speak no word of truth
But we don't understand anyway

[Chorus:]
Holiday
Far away, to stay
On a Holiday, far away
Let's go today
In a heartbeat!
Heartbeat, heartbeat

Don't bother to pack your bags
Or your map
We won't need them where we're goin'
We're goin' where the wind is blowin'
Not knowin' where we're gonna stay

[Chorus]

We will write a postcard
To our friends and family
In free verse
On the road with Kerouac
Sheltered in Bivouac
On this road we'll never die...

Let's go away for a while
You and I
To a strange and distant land
Where they speak no word of truth
But we don't understand anyway

[Chorus]

You can't resist her
She's in your bones
She is your marrow
And your ride home
You can't avoid her
She's in the air
In between molecules
Of oxygen and carbon dioxide
Only in dreams
We see what it means
Reach out our hands
Hold on to hers
But when we wake
It's all been erased
And so it seems
Only in dreams
You walk up to her
Ask her to dance
She says "hey baby
I just might take the chance"
You say "It's a good thing
That you float in the air
That way there's no way
I will crush your pretty toenails into a thousand pieces."
Only in dreams
