- Track Name: D.B.
Extend your arms and pretend they're wings / and dream the same dream you did when you were a kid / then bend your knees and fall / Four sheets to the wind by my demand and a briefcase full of twenties / Put the bourbon on my bill because you're never going to catch me / Coop up and wait for the snoop's exclaim / and play the same game you did when you were a kid / that's how you'll dupe them all / You plan to fail when you fail to plan / and I'll take that to the grave with me / Fake McCoy got shot and killed / You're never going to top me / No, you'll never understand if you think it's about the money / I only did it for the thrill because you're never going to find me.
- Track Name: The Age of Shoddy
You pay your dues but you say it cheapens you / Don't have to work for peer review / Back in '94 this might have mattered more / Now we're second stage for the new gilded age / Let's make a scene / Let's keep it young and clean / Packaged in polypropylene / Back in '94 this might have mattered more / Now we're second stage for the new gilded age / These houses don't sing anymore because this is civil war / It's an inevitable defeat for the ruling elite / And I have no doubt you'll figure out what this song is about / because you're more vain than you act / You did your time / I did mine in 5/4 time / Now I'll enjoy my second prime / Back in '94 we might have mattered more / Now we're second stage for the new gilded age
