Track Name: Beginning of the End
I hereby declare the beginning of the end
The end of the show
If I were you, I’d cut my losses
Grab my stuff and go
For mistakes will be made
Your attention will fade
And I’ll probably play too long
Maybe I should just end with this song

But I hereby declare the beginning of the end
The end of the day
Even though the sun hasn’t really risen yet
There’s nothing new to say
And why get out of bed
When everything’s been said?
Yes, why go to bed at all
At the end of the day
The end of the show
The beginning of the end?

“Oh what can be worth doin’
In this age of ugly ruin?”
Someone is bound to complain
“And what can be worth thinking
When the atmosphere is shrinking
And stupid songs keep running through my brain?”

So I hereby declare the beginning of the end
The end of the world
Everything’s falling apart for me tonight
So why bother with a rhyme that’s just too difficult to think of?
I’ve seen it in the signs
It’s the end of the line
Even though the line has barely begun
It’s the end of the world
The end of the show
The beginning of the end

“Oh what can be worth writing
When it isn’t that exciting?”
Someone is bound to complain
“And what can be worth trying
When I’m far too busy dying
And stupid songs keep running through my brain?”

So I hereby declare the beginning of the end
The end of this song
I cried like Donald Fagen when I wrote this
So go ahead and sue me if I play too long
But my back is to the wall
And I’m tired of the fight
Let’s let apathy win tonight
If this is the beginning
It’s only the beginning of the end
Beginning of the end
Yes, my face is on the floor again
I’m dizzy from the height
Let’s let entropy win tonight
If this is the beginning
It’s only the beginning
Of the end
Track Name: Undercover Maggie
Maggie woke at 6:05
Brushed the dreams out of her eyes
And gazed in the mirror at a face full of compromise
Took some time to set the stage
Put on the lotion to control the age
Maggie’s going undercover for another day

Step out the door to the summer sun
Hit the pavement for the morning run
Feels good, but it’s not what you’d call fun
Look at the hair, not a hint of gray
You’d better not get in her way
Maggie’s going undercover for another day

Chorus:
And it’s
Fold the hands to hide the ring
Smile doesn’t give away a thing
Maggie’s going undercover for another day
Talk the talk and wink the wink
They’re gonna think that you think the think
Maggie’s going undercover for another day

Could’ve been on the silver screen
Yeah she’s the queen of the could-have-been
Plays both sides and everything in between
Straight as an arrow with a twisted tip
On this tightrope she never slips
Maggie’s going undercover for another day

Full of jokes and looking spry
Looking no one in the eye
Looking like the best kind of girl that money can buy
Look at the hair, not a hint of gray
It’s not a game, but she knows how to play
Maggie’s going undercover for another day

(Chorus)

Back at home she let’s it slide
She can be who she is inside
Sad truth is there’s not much left to hide
But in this world so full of lies
All you can count on is your disguise
Maggie didn’t blow her cover for another day

Chorus:
And it’s
Fold the hands to hide the ring
Smile doesn’t give away a thing
Maggie didn’t blow her cover for another day
Walk the walk and drink the drink
They’re gonna know that you think the think
Maggie didn’t blow her cover
Maggie didn’t blow her cover
Maggie’s going undercover for another day
And another day
And another day
