Key of B (for blimp) How many people can you fit aboard? What do you mean no more than twenty four? Where will the music gear be stored? You make me wonder what all this is for? And if this so called plan Is really going to pan out Or is this just a scheme to promote your band? Nah Why of all places on a blimp? How will you ever get insurance? Why not just write some better tunes? Why not settle for a hot air balloon? I don't need your rolodex To keep track of my contacts Bla bla bla bla Hindenberg Blimp Rock Blimp Rock is going live by the lake In 2060 or 75 Blimp Rock Blimp Rock is two grand in the hole or now closer than ever before? Heard you tried to sue the Jays? What a sad desperate attempt at fame Blimp Rock is a terrible name Blimp Rock should get sued by the Jays I hope that Joey Bats makes your blimp go flatter than flat Then he will take its blimp corpse and flip it in the air Well: you can Do whatever you want with life Be it baseball or making wine We can try to have concerts in the sky Even if it's just to try Blimp Rock Blimp Rock is going live by the lake In 2060 or 75 Blimp Rock Blimp Rock is two grand in the hole or now closer than ever before?

This wet hot Canadian summer I left the city with my lover Swapped our kicks in for water shoes Went to a place where dogs ride in canoes Water was cold but we didn't mind This wet hot Canadian summer Night fell and we roasted lumber Fire on the sand by the water with the wind blowing strong and making it harder to light Up a match but we didn't mind My mind Is wired to find stress all the time But it can't find no stress when there is No stress to find, there is no stress to find This wet hot Canadian summer I gave into such a comfort Said I'd like a cottage by the lake Toronto boy, Toronto boy that's just what you say (sung by others) Oh that's right well maybe never mind This wet hot Canadian summer The greatest lake gave us supper Fire on the sand by the water with the wind blowing strong a making it harder to light Up the grill but we didn't mind My mind Is wired to find dark all of the time But it can't cast no shade when there is no shade to find there was no shade to find Right in the thick of the summer I shot a rifle with a hunter Right at a drone doh doh doh doh doh doh doh doh Doh doh doh doh doh doh doh doh Our time Is often pulled some other guys but we don't trade off just to get by when we do what we want, ah whenever we want My mind Is wired to find stress all the time But it can't find no stress when there is No stress to find, there was no stress to find

Dear Science 04:02
Dear Science How do you explain My horoscope and the way it gets me to a T? Dear Peter it’s science You know I worry about confirmation bias How we only check cases that verify to us those things that we’d like to believe Dear science How do you explain My haunted room and the way the plates fly off the shelves Dear Peter Though that’s hard to prove in beakers Studies have shown most poltergeist scenes Are cruel jokes played by teens There is no such thing as a fact we believe we want it's simple as that What does that mean? Sounds like bullshit Things can be proven just ask Darwin Dear science How do you explain Placebo and the brain is that not mind over matter? Dear Peter If the mind is what the brain does And the brain’s made of cells and synaptic structures Isn’t mind over matter really just matter over matter? Okay well then science How do you surmise What people see when the die and come right back to life? Well Peter A brief review of recent research Suggests that quantum information forms your soul and leaves your brain and when you well then you see the light There is no such thing as the truth We make our own truth It's as simple as that Peter then how, are you on the ground? it's cause gravity is weighing you down Science my friend You have made a good case But I still believe in mysterious ways Peter that's up To you my old pal I've enjoyed our debate Now let's get some chow

1 Come to terms with your faults Realize they're your faults Though they're probably not my fault Come to terms with your faults 2 I was born with shoddy pitch Choir tossed me in the ditch Only child to be kicked out of choir at age 6 3 Family did not join in bands nor play instruments with hands some tried hard and thought it damned knew music was not for them 4 I played trumpet in grade school but my friends thought it uncool so we just had spit valve duels girls were right to say boys drooled 5 At my high school talent night I tried out and sung sublime judges politely declined all the others got in fine 7 I tried solos on back put up several myspace tracks forced my friends to give feedback get a new singer perhaps? 8 Open mic at Molly Blooms Such a full supportive room First time I played my own tunes They gave up on me real soon 9 But I did not give in then Made a record with my friends First review 6 out of 10 “Sounds like music for children”
