Track Name: My Boy Ben
I'm just a kid cursed to look like Clark Kent
Who only wanted to be a half decent portrayal
Of a truly bad-ass hero, like Michael Keaton

And I still can't tie my shoe
At least not the way I was taught to
I just make weird nots and hope my originality gets me through

Now I think the devil that was on my shoulder
Killed the late great Jiminy Cricket
And he has stolen that saint's identity
And the place in my heart he lived in

I started talking with this girl named Alli,
Who had a random hatred for Benny Affleck
The more I felt her moving towards me,
The more I felt her breathing down my neck
And I should have told her I think my boy Ben,
Will make a pretty adequate Batman

And I don't watch Tarantino Movies for the action
And what I from people, I hide out of compassion
And I just want a girl who is really lovely, who is real and loves me
With a passion

Now I think the devil that was on my shoulder
Killed the late great Jiminy Cricket
And he has stolen that saint's identity
And the place in my heart he lived in

Is it even possible to be so cynical?
To still have ambition and a life that's abysmal?
No matter what I feel in my gut, I'm gonna push to look a little less miserable.
Track Name: Gas Card
I cut my foot open kicking at the glass in your window frame 
Your nervous apologies seem to help me numb the pain 
I'm bleeding all over the place but at least it's in my car besides,
Romeo and Juliet never stopped to go to the E.R.

I got my parents gas card you got your parents ability to run away from all your problems as much as you need 
I brought quarters for the soda machine if you've got cash for your magazines 
We'll be alright, we'll be alright, we'll be alright,
God I hope We'll be alright 

We're on the road to Organ your hand shaking in mine 
If the mistakes we make when we are young are what we keep inside
Then I hope this mistake stays with my throughout my entire life

You made me stop the car on the side of the road
I'd never felt this clear, concise and bold
You said that I looked tired and we should just spend the night here 
but I said that I was and we needed to keep going
And in your eyes I found destiny was showing 

36 dollars worth of caffeine and 3 and 3 quarters worth of gasoline
And we finally made it to the place we always wanted to be 
I got a job where I can work from home and you got a job on the telephone
And we're never moving back to that city
