Track Name: So Low
In this wretched hive of scum and villainy
Strung out, so tired of misery
If this is my story then there's
only one way that this story goes

Crabs in a barrel will pull you under
Counting the clicks from the flash to the thunder
And then you're left to wonder
Is there somewhere further down to go?

Where did I go wrong?
What did I do wrong?
Where did I go wrong?
How did I get so low?

Somewhere out there there's a context
Tailored just for me
Somewhere there's a princess with
A scoundrel vacancy

Keep putting fuel in the tanks - keep flying
Get good at not dying
Just make sure that you're ready
When your chance comes

Where did I go wrong?
What did I do wrong?
Where did I go wrong?
How did I get so low?

Mos Eisley; if the Hutts find me
Leave a dead bounty hunter pile behind me
Face to the sky; punch it and I'll
Jump to light speed and I'll be gone

Where did I go wrong?
What did I do wrong?
Where did I go wrong?
How did I get so low?
Track Name: Certain Point Of View
When Qui-Gon died, I tried to take over
You could say I lied when I said I could shoulder
The weight of the task I asked from Master Yoda

But I was so keen to be seen as respected
You've got to think it through and see things from my perspective

What I said was true from a certain point of view
If you think about it right I always did the best for you
In the right frame of mind, my decisions hold true
There was nothing I could do
From a certain point of view

I left you to your fate and crawled under a boulder
Out here in the wastes I grew nothing but older
I had to just keep believing what I told you:

The man in you had been superseded by machine
The friend I had was dead - just a robot there instead -
Twisted and evil

What I said was true from a certain point of view
If you think about it right I always did the best for you
In the right frame of mind, my decisions hold true
There was nothing I could do
From a certain point of view
Track Name: Dagobah
I can't believe this fog I'm flying through
All because a dead monk told me to
Mynocks on the front of my ship
It doesn't make a difference 'cause I'm
going to make it better somehow

And as my X-Wing sinks into the bog
I'm pestered by a talking frog
He "knows Yoda", says he'll show me the way
But he lied - he lied.

And I don't know what I'm doing here
Wasting my time, when it's feeling forced
And I can't decide
What I'll do when the fight is on
To tell the good guys from the bad
A mystery
Or is it only in my mind?

You always say "no pain, no gain"
But montage is the hardest way to train
How long have I been in this swamp?
I'm going to have to leave now
This sequence is a strain on the plot
"Do or do not" - the message that you preach
But if you can't do then you teach
I bet you got your ass kicked in the past
At least I tried - I tried

And I don't know what I'm doing here
Wasting my time, when it's feeling forced
And I can't decide
What I'll do when the fight is on
To tell the good guys from the bad
A mystery
Or is it only in my mind?
Track Name: Embarrassment
Listen kid, I've travelled from one side of this galaxy
To the other and I've tried, but I've never seen
Anything to make me think
There's a way to stop these dinks
Bringing up those things you'd rather see forgotten
When will they drop them?

What can you say, what can you do?
When your sister ups and kisses you?
You've got one up on your new friend
But who'll have the last laugh in the end?

Your friends were watching TV news, they saw your AT-ST
Saw the rebel wrecking crews cower at its feet
And when the hatch began to open
They knew what they were seeing here
Was the pinnacle of your military career

But it wasn't even you in there
It was a walking carpet, a ball of hair

What can you say, what can you do?
Those teddy bears had bested you
The knocked you over on your ass
And left you sprawling in the grass

They'll make sure you're reminded
Of the time when Han was blinded
And he smacked you on your back
And fired off your rocket pack
And you flailed out

What can you say, what can you do?
Embarrassment will follow you
When will those chumps just let it lie?
I get it - many Bothans died
Track Name: Midichlorians
You've got something that everyone else has got
The difference is that you've got a hell of a lot
Your reading's so high, it's off the chart
So listen up, 'cause this is just the start

Superhero powers, a dream come true
Learn to quiet your mind
You'll hear them talking to you
Subcellular particle best friends
Midichlorians

I think I'm just going to fob off Obi-Wan
Tell the Jedi council that he's done
Anakin's so much better for my credentials
So much more potential

Superhero powers, a dream come true
Learn to quiet your mind
You'll hear them talking to you
Subcellular particle best friends
Midichlorians

You've got something that everyone else has got
The difference is that you've got a hell of a lot
Your reading's so high, it's off the chart
So listen up, 'cause this is jut the start

Superhero powers, a dream come true
Learn to quiet your mind
You'll hear them talking to you
Subcellular particle best friends
Midichlorians
