Dashboard - We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
Lyrics:

Well it would've been, could've been
Worse than you would ever know

Oh the dashboard melted
But we still had the radio

Oh it should've been, could've been
Worse than you would ever know

Well you told me 'bout nowhere
Well it sounds like some place I'd like to go

Oh it could've been, should've been
Worse then you would ever know

Well the windshield was broken
But I love the fresh air you know

Well it would've been, could've been
Worse than you would ever know

Oh we talked about nothing
Which was was more than I wanted to know

Now here we go

Oh it would've been, could've been
Worse than it had even gone

Well the car was on blocks
But I was already where I want

Why should we ever even
Ever really get to know

Oh if the world don't like us
It'll shake us just like we were a cold

Now here we go

Well we schemed and we schemed
But would always blow it
We've yet to crash
But we still might as well tow it
Standin' at a light switch
To each east and west horizon
Ever dawn one yells surprise
And in the evening one's consoling, sayin'
See it wasn't quite as bad as

Well it would've been, could've been
Worse then you would ever know

I was patiently erasing and recording the wrong episodes
After you had proved my point wrong
It wasn't like I'd let it go
I just wanted to catch
The last laugh of this show

Yeah it would've been, could've been
Worse than you would ever know

Oh the dashboard melted
But we still had the radio

Hardwired to conceive
So much we had to stow it
Even needs have needs
Tiny giants made out of tinier giants
Don't wear eyelids
So I don't miss
The last laugh of the show

Well it could've been, should've been
Worse than you would ever know

Well you told me 'bout nowhere
Well it sounds like some place I'd like to go

Now here we go

Well we schemed and we schemed
But would always blow it
We've yet to crash
But we still might as well tow it
Standin' at a light switch
To each east and west horizon
Ever dawn one yells surprise
And in the evening one's consoling, sayin'
See it wasn't quite as bad as

Well it would've been, could've been
Worse than you would ever know
