Track Name: The Universe Wants To Kill Us
The Universe Wants to kill us

A meteorite exploded with the force of twenty-five
Atom bombs, twenty kilometers up we watched on
Dashboard Cams that every Russian car has
To protect people from lawsuits and police corruption

If it had been a little bigger
It would have killed us
No charming crew of rig pigs and roughnecks
There to save us
We'd be like the dinosaurs
All our petty problems gone to
Dust in the atmosphere
Blotting out the sun
Ash right before our eyes
Killing everyone

The Universe wants to kill us
Oh, the Universe wants us dead
If an asteroid doesn't get the job done
Something else will instead.

On the very same day a forty thousand ton asteroid
Passed very near (at least on a cosmic scale)
If we had had a little less luck there'd be
Another Tunguska (you should really look Tunguska up if you get chance)

If it had passed a little closer
It might have killed us
No charming crew of rig pigs and roughnecks
There to save us
We'd be like the dinosaurs
All our petty problems gone to
Dust in the atmosphere
Choking out the sun
Ash right before our eyes
Killing everyone

The Universe wants to kill us
Oh, the Universe wants us dead
If an asteroid doesn't get the job done
Something else will instead.
The Universe wants to kill us
It doesn't like us alive
Eventually it will succeed
I hope we've got some time
Track Name: On not enjoying a celebration
Okay I was gone for awhile and
I'm really happy for you guys and
yeah, it's what I said I always wanted

But I've been wrong once or twice and
This feels wrong it isn't mine it
belongs to people who actually got it

So enjoy yourselves (you know it's later than you think)
But it feels empty to me
I'm not saying you've got it wrong I'm not saying anything
It's not you this is my malady

We'll get along alright I'll
Sing a song sometime tonight but
I know well enough I'm not the star of the show

People are here to have a good time
I'm not trying to get them down I'm just shy
these are the songs that I know how to write

So raise your glass if you feel alone when you're in a crowd
Even surrounded by the ones you love
Put your hands up if you feel like you want to leave early tonight
Put your hands up if you need to take a break and get some air outside
