Track Name: Into Something Good
Never been much a macho man
All I got was my brains
My endeavors with girls were in vain

So I used all my craftiness
And etched out plan
A woman with pneumatic hands

She’s made up of bits and pieces
It was a yard sale find
A scrap-iron lady has conquered my mind

I know we’re into something good
(A gynoid just can’t be bad)
I know we’re onto something right
(A gynoid who’s ironclad)

Biometric intelligence
And delrin hub wheels
But no one can tell how she feels

When setting the bootstrap
I gave her three laws
The mistake was to give her steel claws

Her feedback is sympathetic
How can I believe it
When all that she’s thinking is zeros and ones

I know we’re into something good
(A gynoid just can’t be bad)
I know we’re onto something right
(A gynoid who’s ironclad)

I know we’re into something good
(A gynoid just can’t be bad)
I know we’re onto something right
(A gynoid who’s ironclad)
She’s a walking no talking battalion
Not a stupid Adobe application
Though I’m only a Cupid Pygmalion
I can’t almost believe it’s an eve of devastation

I know we’re into something good
(A gynoid just can’t be bad)
I know we’re onto something right
(A gynoid who’s ironclad)
Track Name: Careful With The Chainsaw, Dear
I can recall your situation - damnation
The trees were high
Upon a night of animation

Careful with the chainsaw, dear
You’ll only hurt yourself
Wield the blade when no one’s near
Or hang it on the shelf

The bridge fell down upon inspection - reflection
Don’t raise the dead
If you can’t trace the process backwards

Careful with the chainsaw, dear
You’ll only hurt yourself
Wield the blade when no one’s near
Or hang it on the shelf

Now standing in this brain dead weather - together
If just a glance
There’s no romance without reaction

Careful with the chainsaw, dear
You’ll only hurt yourself
Wield the blade when no one’s near
Or hang it on the shelf
Track Name: Tinseltown
It’s an hour drive
To the glaring urban lights
There's another world
But two wrongs don’t make a right

I lost my way
Like all the stars, they’re falling from the sky
But I hold on to the dream

It’s a miracle
I got a part in Belmont Place
Now on season ten
So I will wear the chintzy face

I lost my way
Like all the stars, they’re falling from the sky
But I hold on to the dream

I’m back in Hollywood
Where the streets are paved with gold
I knuckle down ‘cause it’s time to make or break in Tinseltown

Sitting here again
Like a fish upon the sand
At the BFC
And from the show I’ve been canned

I lost my way
Like all the stars, they’re falling from the sky
But I hold on to the dream

I’m back in Hollywood
Where the streets are paved with gold
I knuckle down ‘cause it’s time to make or break in Tinseltown
I’m back in Hollywood
Where the streets are paved with gold
I knuckle down ‘cause It’s time to set the stage, time to make the break
