Lyrics

Actress

Written By: Ben Patton

I recall the day you called me up and said you're droppin out.
Boy was I mad.
And then You said you wanna be an actress, I laughed at you.
Boy were you sad.

I'm so sorry. You're old enough to chose.
I'll be cheering at all your big debuts.

I can see that hours of waiting tables are insultingly taxing and bland.
And I know that going to auditions can get tiresome, I understand.

Don't cry Bailey, it's just one bad review.
Don't be silly. Of course we'll make it through.

Go and do what makes you happy my dear. Don't let nobody tell you who you are.
Just one look at you it's perfectly clear, my baby's gonna be a, my baby's gonna be a star.

Don't cry Bailey. It's just one bad review.
Don't be silly. Of course you'll make it through.
I'm proud of you.

Deus Ex Machina

Written By: Ben Patton

Here all alone, eyes wide open and my lips parted slightly.
Gazing upon a glowing screen, yeah.
Stuck with my heart in the machine, yeah.

Here in my church a stained glass window that keeps changin and I'm so high, I could stay here til I die, yeah.
Gazing upon you like a spy, yeah.

Cancel my dates, turn my loved ones away, blow them off. I don't care what you say. You can tell them that I've passed away.

Stuck with my heart in the machine, yeah. Stuck with my heart in the machine, yeah.
Yeah.

Helium Balloon

Written By: Ben Patton

Helium Balloon

There I was, with my helium balloon
walking down the avenue on Sunday morning.
Then I tripped and for a moment loose my grip
and my balloon goes sailing towards the sun.

Bailey said she got into NYU.
She was so excited that she'd been accepted.
NYU, oh Bailey I'm so proud of you, that's what I said
but this is what I meant:

Don't go away. Stay with me, can't you see,
I need you every day. You're part of me,
say you'll stay.

Yesterday I was looking on the mirror,
when all at once I noticed my receding hairline.
And I said to hairs left on my head in a voice
that trembled with unease:

Don't go away. Stay with me, can't you see.
I need you every day. You're part of me,
say you'll stay.

When his tumor first appeard grandpa started acting weird,
giving all his stuff away.
He said he'd be leaving soon like that helium balloon
that I lost the other day.
But I say:

Don't go away. Stay with me, can't you see I need you every day.
Your part of me, say you'll stay.
(Hey hey don't you go away, hey hey won't you say you'll stay).

You're part of me. say you'll stay.

Massachusetts Slumber Party Massacre

Written By: Ben Patton

Bailey's folks were out of town and what with no-one else around she invited all her friends to come on down.
Bailey, Heather, Kim and Sue stayed up talking until 2 telling secrets like all little ladies do.

I'm gonna be honest with you.
This isn't the best I can do.
It's only the Massachusetts Slumber Party Massacre .
I wouldn't recommend it to friends.
But stick around to see how it ends.
I call it the Massachusetts Slumber Party Massacre .

The lights went out and Bailey shrieked, Heather clung to Sue and squeaked.
It's just the storm said Kim no reason to be freaked.

All four girls cried out in dread when the phone rang by the bed. And on the line the chilling voice that answered said (Hello):

I'm gonna be honest with you.
This isn't the best I can do.
It's only the Massachusetts Slumber Party Massacre.
I wouldn't recommend it to friends.
But stick around to see how it ends.
I call it the Massachusetts Slumber Party Massacre.

Pervert Like Me

Written By: Ben Patton

Last Night I dreamed that in Central Park grew a field of four leaf clover, overnight.
But when morning came it was all the same. No-one came to make me over, overnight.

I'm the fag of the fags , the lord of the flies. All the other sickos overt their eyes.
But when god looks me over what does he see. Wouldn't heaven welcome a pervert like me.

If I'm such a spooky creep, why am I the one who's haunted, tell me why.
If I'm such a predetor, why am I the one who's hunted, tell me why.

I'm the number one name on the devil's list and my mom pretends that I don't exist.
But when god looks me over what does he see. Wouldn't heaven welcome a pervert like me.

Ahhhh. Ahhhh.

Last night I dreamed that in Central Park grew a field a four leaf clover, overnight.
