Track Name: Bud Bronson & the Good Timers - Back to the Womb
I’m high in the airport and I’m about to get so much higher
I’m flying home, I’m flying back in time
I just wanna hear Mike Francesca scream about stuff that doesn’t matter
I wanna fade into familiar bliss

Whatever’s going on I don’t wanna know
I’m tuning out, I’m in airplane mode

There was a time in my life when I wanted nothing more than doing what I’d done before
The thought’s kinda comforting, but I’d stagnate if it came to be — a basement champ for all eternity

It used to be about debauchery
Clinging to teenage fantasies
Now it’s an exit strategy
A way to escape reality

Cause the world’s so goddamn big I need a place where it’s all explained to me
Wrap me up and swallow me, I wanna forget about everything

Be kind and please rewind a highlight reel of all of our good times
Yeah we can make some more tonight

Would it have ever even been enough, Buds and buds Friday night at the Paca Club?
We ain’t never ever gunna find out, we can kick it at Kevin’s house
Would it have ever even been enough, The Boys Are Back In Town in Steve’s garage?
We ain’t never ever gunna find out, it doesn’t even matter now

I’m going back to the womb — hey Matt is it cool if I crash with you?
I’m going back to the womb, we can do everything we used to do
Don’t think too much, just power through

Cause we’re testing time travel
Track Name: Benchmarks - The Good Fight
I pledge allegiance to the screen
The conduit of my innermost beliefs
Seeking solidarity
To contemplate these things I've never seen

Look at me, so contentious
I'm the poet of my time
Writing my convenient
Sermons to the choir

Is it all for the greater good?
Or do we just toe the party line?
Fighting the so-called good fight
Just so I can get what's mine?

I pledge allegiance to the stage
The means of all my self-appointed guts
Bleeding out my policies
Fully knowing I’ll survive the cut

Look at me, so controversial
I’m the martyr of my time
Preaching my convenient
Sermons to the choir

Is it all for the greater good?
Or do we just toe the party line?
Fighting the so-called good fight
Just so I can get what's mine?

And just who are we helping?
And what are we fighting for?
Fighting the so-called good fight
Maybe you can get what's yours
Only if I get what's mine

I'm living in an echo chamber and I can't get out
