Track Name: Whateverworld 2
You got dumped
Now you're pumped
Cause you're on the rebound
You’re stressin’
And you’re fessin’
Bout a message to be found
And it makes a lot of sense when we look behind you
Now you’re hoping that Whateverworld will find you

Have a ball
At the mall
You can bring your parents
The downtown clone store’s having a clearance
Dig it here
Grab a chair
While we form a committee
now we’re never ever ever going back to this city

Suck it up
Grab a cup
At the burger king yeah
And it’s hittin’
While you’re sittin’
And it’s just the thing yeah
Give it up
Live it up
Now you’re putting your feet down
There’s somebody out there getting a beatdown
You’re afraid that the city is gonna break you
And you’re hoping that Whateverworld will take you
Track Name: Modern Rock
Modern Rock is just a preset
Modern rock is a disease
Do you wanna take the jazz school down tonight?
No diploma / no degrees

Modern Rockin’ wi-fi airwaves
Modern Rockin’ on the phone
Too many bills for the thrills in 2012
Gonna make it on our own

Today they got inside your head
And they told you rock and roll was dead
But you’ve always been a pissed off kid
And you’re always regretting the things you did

And while I can’t say it all in a middle 8
The best sounds in the world are completely fake
And I don’t listen to the chills or the clean
And think this place just ain’t my scene because

Modern is automatic
Modern rock will set you free
Do you wanna let your jets cool down tonight?
No baby boomer fantasies

Modern Rock is up all night
Modern Rockin’ on a dime
No hooks for the crooks in 2012
Modern Rock another time
Track Name: Unleash The Free TV Revolt
Last night I had the strangest dream
Electric candy in the TV screen
But take it with a grain of salt
Unleash The Free TV Revolt

And we would have two sides it seems
Castle and Beckett on the tv screens
It is my thing / it’s all my fault
Unleash the free TV revolt

You took a shot you did your best
You’re failing on the TV test
It’s not my thing / it’s not my fault
Unleash The Free TV Revolt
Track Name: Wake Up On Earth
I went to the Pleasure Planet and forgot to fall in love
Woke up with haggard eyes and I cursed the stars above
Last thing I remember was seeing clones take off their clothes

And the smell of synthetic pheromones
across my shirt n’ right up my nose
And I wanna be sick and I wanna get high
and the van and the smoke and the flashing lights / I dunno

What a horrible night to have a curse, I woke up on earth
The shopping is great and you’ll stay up late for what it’s worth
It was voted the squarest place in space, it’s full of dicks

But it pays to be member of the human race
on the couch with a stupid look on my face
I just wanna go out and get some kicks
I’ll be last in line or I’ll get there quick / whatever

We could listen to songs about LSD on LSD
We could watch a show about TV on MTV
You can see ‘em checking out real estate in Slumcity

‘cause you know the future has gotta be
A vague and complicated memory
Where we don’t get sick / and nobody dies
And the hits are the shit / and you’re up all night
Rappin’ along to a new kind of alien beat
Out in the sun it’s the one / now you’re out on the street
Because the constellations never lied
And the sun is a star in someone else’s eyes
Track Name: Aftertouch
You know that I've been infatuated with you for so long
Thought the feeling was gone by now but it just came back so strong
Human love is a pack of lies and I don't know what to do
Well I guess that I'm pretty high so I'll lie and think of you

aftertouch

aftertouch

aftertouch

aftertouch

And the lights of the hover-cars through the window touch the walls
And the parallel lines of ultraviolet rise and fall
Like the beat of your plastic heart in the dark when I’m touching you
And I know I won’t be fine but I'll lie and say it's true

aftertouch

aftertouch

aftertouch

aftertouch
Track Name: Sweatshop
I was staying up real late playing mass effect while the city slept
Feeling fly on the codeine high well it was no sweat I got no regrets
Then I saw my face reflected in the light of the plasma screen
This was the year that we grew up well this must be 2013

Foxconn, foxconn
Take me back to Foxconn
Foxconn, foxconn
Take me back to Foxconn

Sweatshop
Think we’ll make it in the sweatshop
We won’t fake it in the sweatshop
Yup we’ll take it to the sweatshop

Next stop
If you’re thinking you’re a hotshot
Then we’ll take it to the sweatshop
We won’t make it in the sweatshop

The silicon Valley Girls will let you in when they’re in line
It’s a grande Frappucino world and they got dreams, and they got time
Got time to work it out takin’ selfies in the parking lot
And the minute they check their phones they’re electrified by the future shock

Foxconn, foxconn
Take me back to Foxconn
Foxconn, foxconn
Take me back to Foxconn

Sweatshop
Think we’ll make it in the sweatshop
We won’t fake it in the sweatshop
Yup we’ll take it to the sweatshop

Next stop
If you’re thinking you’re a hotshot
Then we’ll take it to the sweatshop
We won’t make it in the sweatshop

All the shi-shi quinoa clones well they were reading Atlas Shrugged
And they all went it alone but now they’re reading Eat Pray Love
The millennials grow up and they all get jobs at the NSA
And their wiretaps run hot when all the shi-shi webcats say

Foxconn, foxconn
Take me back to Foxconn
Foxconn, foxconn
Take me back to Foxconn
Track Name: Parallax
We set the scene
And then we act
Ten thousand things
In parallax
We go to sleep
We take a nap
And then we dream
In parallax

We set the scene
And then we act
Ten thousand things
In parallax
We go to lunch
We get a snack
And then we dream
In Parallax
Track Name: Free Wifi
There's an innocence in times that we remember
There's a freedom when you see the morning light
Don't you know that you and me will live forever
All because we're on the Free WiFi tonight
Track Name: Oh Yeah
Peep the beat beneath the astroturf
A journey to the centre of the earth
The instrumental thing is how you see
That this is just the place for you and me

Uh huh
Uh huh
Uh huh
Oh yeah

Well people tell you that’s the way it is
How that is just the nature of the biz
We step into a wave of frozen light
And that is all we need to do tonight

Uh huh
Uh huh
Uh huh
Oh yeah
