it's finally over (hagenbuch / harris)

it's finally over, is what i heard her say
it's finally over, at the end of the day
it's finally over, eight long hours is eternity
it's finally over

fear is the warden of the prison you're in
conquer your fears to find the key
fear is the warden of the prison you're in
unlock the door and you'll be free

i'm sad it's over, at the end of the day
i'm sad it's over, i've got so much more to do today
i'm sad it's over, the hours passed like minutes
i'm sad it's over

it's finally over
it's finally over
i've got so much more to do today
i'm sad it's over

satellite (hagenbuch)

there's a satellite
in the sky tonight
checking to make sure we're in our place
there's a rocket near
in our stratosphere
zooming in from outer space
there's a deadly gun
aimed at everyone
ready to remove our every trace

that's why everbody's praying
yeah, everybody's saying
we hope we have some fun while in this place

a tectonic plate
that decides to shake
knocking all our buildings down
there's a meteor
on a deadly tour
aiming to be a hole within our ground
there's a polar cap
that used to nap
now it wants to cover up our town

that's why everybody's praying
yeah, everybody's saying
we hope we have some fun before we drown

now everything is out to get us
it's a wonder we've gotten this far
that's why everybody's praying
yeah, everybody's saying
we hope we have some fun before we're gone

jay hagenbuch - lead vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar

chopping block (hagenbuch)

his head was on the chopping block
i never meant to cut it off
i never meant to dislocate
i only meant to shape

mining for the meaning that's within the stone
taking away all that's not the truth
finding his form in the alabaster
revealing my one and only master
i lose myself in this eternity
i was making him, now he's shaping me
and i didn't mean to do it, officer

staring at the product of a fatal crack
disaster came from an single whack
it's a tragedy when your art deceases
the masterpiece is now his master's pieces
no longer will i achieve the fame
for i am forced to take the blame
and look what this mess has done to me

jay hagenbuch - lead vocals, acoustic guitar
chris harris - drums, backing vocals

gi joe (hagenbuch / harris)

gi, gi, joe
where did your girlfriend go
did she run to the city for another man
don't fret she wasn't your type
good looking but her head's so light
all she ever wanted was a pink corvette
(not an army jeep)

gi, gi, joe
why you hang your head so low
don't the kids in the neighborhood play with you
now that special magic hand
has found it's way around a beer can
now you're just like all the other toys

like fisher price people and weebles

what, back in the yard again
could this be a new found friend
you never know what can happen at these yard sales

what, he paid a quarter for you
maybe now you'll have something to do
this could be the moment you've been waiting for

gi, gi, joe
i guess now you have a reason to woe
you find yourself in a collection
hanging out with the bionic man
and ken with his malibu tan
standing around just collecting dust

like fisher price people and weebles

chris harris - lead vocals, drums, shaker
jay hagenbuch - acoustic guitar, backing vocals
brian hagenbuch - beer

lucky (hagenbuch / harris)

i'm on the 13th floor
though it's numbered 14
another broken elevator
another counting scheme
well i wake up in the morning
in another lucky bed
in another lucky room
with another lucky head

i've got a superstitious feeling
better stay inside
i'll never be in danger
if i always hide
well i stay away from danger
with another lucky charm
with another lucky symbol
that'll keep me away from harm

i haven't found a need
to change my lucky ways
the world is in my television
and that is where it stays
well i view it from a distance
in a very lucky chair
on a very lucky tube
with a very lucky stare

answering machine (hagenbuch)

we are sorry no one's home
we can't make it to the phone
leave a message at the tone
we'll call you when we get home

we'll call you back
we'll call you back
we'll call you back

jay hagenbuch - small acoustic guitar, vocals
chris harris - vocals
kristin salvi - vocals
