"Box Set" as written by and Steven Page....
One, two

I never thought that you would love me
The way that you do
I never thought that you would Love me
Half as much as I do
You say you want to know everything about me
Well here you go
You say you couldn't live your life without me
I don't know
But if you want it girl, you got it
It's all right here in my box set

I never thought words that like product
Could ever leave my lips
But something happened to me somewhere
That made me lose my grip
Maybe it's a lack of inspiration
That makes me stoop
Or maybe it's a lack of remuneration
I can't recoup
But if you want it folks, you got it
It's all right here in my box set

Disc One, it's where we've begun
It's all my greatest hits
And if you are a fan
Then you know that you've already got 'em

Disc Two, it was all brand new
An album's worth of songs
But we had to leave the whole disc blank
'Cause some other label bought 'em

Disc Three, this is really me
In a grade school play
I had about a hundred thousand lines
But of course I forgot 'em

I never thought there'd be days Like this
There was always someone at my door
I never thought I would ever miss
And the crowd would always holler for more
But now it seems all that people Want
Is what I used to be
And every time I try to do Something new
All they want is 1973

I never thought I'd be regretful
Of all my past success
But some stupid number one hit single
Has got me in this mess
You can put it on every compilation
That's alright
You can hear it on the oldies radio Station
Every night
And if you want it again you got it
It's right here in my box set

Disc Four, never released before
And you can tell why
It's just some demos I recorded in my basement

Disc Five, I was barely alive
I was hacking up a lung
Oh so they had to use a special computer as my replacement

Disc Six, a dance remix
So I can catch the latest trend
And it'll make you scratch your head and wonder where my taste went
Ah ha, yeah

So now my fans are crying sellout
They say I've lost my touch
They say I should just get the hell out
Before I do too much
Hear my songs in an ad for a bathroom cleanser
They say it's greed
And now I'm wondering where my friends are
In this time of need
But if you change your mind and buy it
I hope you enjoy my new box
I hope you enjoy my new box
I hope you enjoy my new box set

    General CommentDidn't one of BNL laugh when they said that they thought this was fate or something? Like, he feels that by writing this song it would all end up like it? Maybe that's another reason for naming their first compilation like they did. Of course, they're not done yet, and so that means that wasn't the true disc one of the Box set though. They probably have better hits a-coming.

    General Commentwell... looking at some of the songs of their last album, i'd have to agree with this song... they seem to be going downhill

    General CommentI bet disc 4 will be Buck Naked, or maybe the tape Steve made pre-BNL with his high school freind called Scary Movie Breakfast. The disc 6 dance remix should be interesting. The one I'm that's gonna make me cream in my pants is disc 5. I'm dying to hear the special computer they used as his replacement. :)

    General CommentThis song was self-defacing. Steve wrote it to make of the situation that he would be in. This song is one joke after another. That's what Steve said, can't remember where I read that though.

    General CommentOk so I forgot to put the word fun in that sentence. It should have read "Steve wrote it to make fun of the situation that he would be in." Makes sense now doesn't it?

    General CommentI love this song, probably the best song on Gordon

    Disc 3 could be their 2 new albums, because they used a lot of b-sides, the "forgotten lines"

    And Disc 2 could either be Stunt (because the songs didnt have much meaning, except for a few), or are me, because they switched to a new record label.
