Track Name: Drive Me Thru Infinity (Section I)
I remember when I
would see the sky green
and the distant trees,
and I'd wonder how.
I would grow up to be,
and what would I see;
if I was gonna be
a little bit happier and—

Fix all this shit, your father thinks
you should fix all this shit, and grow up to be
a little more like him, a little more like them,
and you're gonna change for worse and then—

You are gonna fail and you're gonna learn,
You are gonna fuck it up and feel regret,
But then you will not care, because who gives a fuck anyway.
You are gonna dance and then you're gonna fall,
You are gonna rise above, a thousand feets tall,
And then you will not care, because who gives a fuck anyway.
Track Name: Remember
Seems like the other day— my baby went away. He went away 'cross the sea. It's been two years or so since I saw my baby go, and then this letter came for me. It said that we were through. He found somebody new. Let me think: what can I do?

Remember walking in the sand, walking hand in hand. The night was so exciting. Smile was so inviting. Then he touched my cheek with his fingertips. Softly we'd meet with our lips.

Whatever happened to the boy that I once knew? The boy who said he'd be true? What will happen to the life I gave to you?

What will I do with it now?
Track Name: Mr. Blue Sky
Sun is shinin' in the sky. There ain't a cloud in sight. It's stopped rainin'. Everybody's in a play, and don't you know it's a beautiful new day, hey!

Runnin' down the avenue, see how the sun shines brightly in the city, on the streets where once was pity. Mr. Blue Sky is living here today, hey!

Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us, why you had to hide away for so long? Where did we go wrong?

Hey you, with the pretty face! Welcome to the human race! A celebration— Mr. Blue Sky's up there waiting, and today is the day we've waited for, oh!

Hey there, Mr. Blue! We're so pleased to be with you. Look around see what you do. Everybody smiles at you.

Mr. Blue Sky. Mr. Blue Sky. Mr. Blue Sky, yes.

Mr. Blue, you did it right, but soon comes Mr. Night creeping over. Now his hand is on your shoulder. Never mind— I'll remember you this way.
