Finally, Hello
Track Name: Surrounded By Plastic
Track Name: 25 Maple
(Collaged Conversations)

I miss my house
I miss my friends
I miss my room
I miss my bed
All the times we had were fun
I can't believe it's finally done

I miss the yard
I miss the trees
I miss the town
the music scene
If I could do it all again
I wouldn't change a fucking thing
The drum set
in my basement
the times I spent
I won't forget
I can't believe it's really gone
This house was more than just a home

(Collaged Conversations)
Track Name: Super Duper Girl
You're a Super Duper Girl
(Collage Vocals)
Track Name: Made of Clouds
Track Name: If Only We Could Be Together
Track Name: Times, They Be Tough
No (Computer Voice)
Track Name: New York Free Magazine
When I walk into the Record Store
If I see a stack I'll grab a million more
I scour the City like such a fiend
I'm looking for free magazines
And I've been here so long and I still can't believe
That, I live in this City with these FREE MAG A ZINES

New York, New York Free
New York Free Magazine

(collage voice)
Track Name: The Canoodling Song (f. Shannon Dry)
Your arm around me
I just can't believe
That I've found my love
This is what I think
As we fall asleep
As we fall asleep

My arm around you
Listening to you snooze
And I'll hold you tight
For the rest of the night
For the rest of your life

And if you wake up scared or cold
Just remember that I'm there
I'm there to hold you in the night
Just remember that I'm there
Just remember that I'm there
Just remember that I'm there
Just remember that I'm there and that you're not alone
That you're not alone
That you're not alone
That you're not alone
Track Name: Goodbye My Best Friends
Goodbye my best friends I wish it were longer
We tried to be smart, and we tried to be stronger
I wish that we could do the things that we want to
Before it collapses
Before all's forgotten

Goodbye my family, we all helped each other
It was the best we could do for another
But maybe just helping ourselves was the problem
We neglected the people
We never bothered

Some say it will happen
Some say it won't happen
I think it will happen
I know it will happen
Goodbye my best friends and
Goodbye my ex-friends and
Goodbye to every one I ever met

Goodbye to houses, apartments and sublets
Schoolyards with playgrounds and new basketball nets
So long to churches, religions and Pope hats
I wish you could help us
But we're way beyond that

Goodbye to music, computers and CD's
Late Night with Conan O'brien and TV
So long our nations, our freedom and thinking
Everone's bleeding


The clock's at two minutes
I know man, who's counting
My mind hurt's when I think about what has happened
Please can we put a quick stop to the madness
Before it's all over
Track Name: I'll Take My Time
I'll take my time
I have a lot to waste
Keep my patients
Keep being patient
I can't force anything
Something will happen
Something will happen
I need to wait
For you to show up
I hope you show up
It will be great
Track Name: I Miss You (Part II)

lyrics that never made it:

I miss you so much it hurts
My heart, it breaks, into, a million pieces
Happiness comes in quick spurts
But time, does not, exist, in Quantum Physics
