Track Name: Shut Up and Take a Seat
Shut Up and Take a Seat

Shut up and take a seat
Shut up and take a seat
You surly bag of meat
Shut up and take a seat

It's neither complicated nor deep
But the learning curve is steep

So, shut up and take a seat
Shut up and take a seat
You're in for an honest treat
Shut up and take a seat
It's neither complicated nor deep
But the learning curve is steep

So, shut up and take a seat
Track Name: I'm So Happy When I'm Hating
I'm So Happy When I'm Hating
(Lyrics Todd Pot/Music Marc R.)

I feel my muscles tighten as you walk into the room
I flash a frozen smile--evil visions loom
You don't know it but I hate you 'cause you are
I'm always right and you are wrong--never up to par

You're so fucking irritating
I'm so happy when I'm hating
You're the one I love degrading
I'm so happy when I'm hating
So fucking irritating
I'm so happy when I'm hating
Killing you I'm contemplating
I'm so happy when I'm hating

A knife between your shoulder blades, a hatchet to your head
I wanna tell you that you suck, but sit and pout instead
I'll rob you of your stature and rob you of your health
In my mind I'm beating you while beating on myself

You're so fucking irritating
I'm so happy when I'm hating
You're the one I love degrading
I'm so happy when I'm hating
So fucking irritating
I'm so happy when I'm hating
Killing you I'm contemplating
I'm so happy when I'm hating
Track Name: I'm a Haunted House
I'm a Haunted House

Did I mention that I'm leaving?
Disappearing into whispers
Retreating like a spider
Who's eaten all her sisters

'Cause I'm a haunted house
I'm a haunted house

Did you know I wrote a letter?
Never took the time to send it
You'll never see a crop of happy
If you never learn to tend it

'Cause I'm a haunted house
I'm a haunted house
Track Name: The Land of Just-Don't-Care
The Land of Just-Don't-Care

Let's all take a trip
Careful not slip
Don't need a busted hip
In the Land of Just-Don't-Care
The Land of Just-Don't-Care

Was gonna write verse
But that would only make it worse
People don't rehearse
In the Land of Just-Don't-Care

We can all get rich
'Cause they pay you there to bitch
That's the awesome 'sitch
In the Land of Just-Don't-Care
The Land of Just-Don't-Care

Let's all take a trip
Careful not slip
Don't need a busted hip
In the Land of Just-Don't-Care
The Land of Just-Don't-Care
