Hat Trick 05:55
Now they’re all so fine And the night crawls on Get in line Don’t waste your time Who wants to Who wants to turn me on Passionate feelings start I almost believe But my heart It grows dark Cuz I know I know you’re gonna leave, well I’m love sick You’re just a Hat Trick But now I’m caught So caught up in it In a fit I thought this was it But I was caught So caught up in it I’m gonna push the envelope I‘m gonna make you kiss Falling for For fuck ups Just a bunch of shady bullshit See I’m so I’m so so fine And my heart beats on So I won’t wait in line There’s always someone else Someone to turn me on yeah Look out Don’t waste you time Look out Don’t stand in line Look out Don’t waste your time

La,la,la,la,la Rocking Chair La,la,la,la,la To the Stage Your voice makes his mouth water But right now you couldn’t be farther So he stays in a headphone state Back and forth Hullucinate It ain’t a far jump From the rocking chair to the stage La,la,la,la,la Rocking Chair La,la,la,la,la To the Stage Now he’s getting all pervy After release comes inspiration Sniff the bottle Grab my throttle Fantasies engaged It ain’t a far jump From the rocking chair to the stage La,la,la,la,la Rocking Chair La,la,la,la,la To the Stage Now he was let down by the dance floor’s promise Must’ve been better back in the day She was a shooting star She lived fast women, fast cars If only they’d lived From the rocking chair to the stage

Beautiful 04:06
At night I roam the streets I wanna know the score Sometimes I ask Why bother? I’ve seen it all before Now that you got freedom What you gonna do with it? Sometimes I pay for it Sometimes it comes my way for free But every time I do it It’s brand spankin’ new to me In all my years of slutdom I never met no one like you (and you know he’s been around) And you know I’ve been around They call you cold But they’re just too old So don’t run and hide Wear that dirty badge with pride Become beautiful Why can’t we be Beautiful Spreading all the love we like? There ain’t nothing But right now So wear your dirty badge with pride Why can’t it be Beautiful Spreading all the love we like? There ain’t nothing But right now So wear your dirty badge with pride Be beautiful At night I roam the streets I wanna know the score Now that you got freedom What you gonna do with it? In all my years in smuttown I never met no one like you (and you know he’s been around) And you know I’ve been around They call me cold But they’re just too old So I won’t run and hide Wear my dirty badge with pride Cuz I’m beautiful

No Dancing 05:24
Somebody Throw me a bone I can’t stand to be In this city all alone I can’t bear To hear my thoughts no more Black and white sign keeps us in line Now we just go for the booze And then we stay for the back rooms Cuz’ there’s No Dancing There’s No Dancing There’s No Dancing Some people Make me feel old See I just shot another useless load Who cares? Who cares if it sounds mean? I hate every scene Black and white sign keeps us in line No we just go for the booze And then we stay for the back rooms Cuz’ there’s No Dancing There’s No Dancing There’s No Dancing

Who am I gonna look at the moon with? And who am I gonna look at my wounds with? Why did you place doubt in my heart? Who wears the pants in this family? Who does the sitting and Who does the shoving? Why did I give you so much power? Hour after hour And pissing in the shower Why do we start so soft And end so hard? You’ve got secrets you’ll never tell Another fantasy shot to hell Shot to hell Oh well I wear my heart on my mullet Insomnia and my sheets are wet Thought I wasn’t alone But this Chesapeake House is no longer my home So alls I wanna know is If you’re so dumb And I’m so smart Why did you place doubt in my heart? Tell me baby Why do we start so soft And end so hard? You got secrets? Well I got a couple of my own You’ll find them downtown You know, right there downtown Downtown where I Broke down

Living Time 03:52
Don’t you do it Don’t you make me feel that way It’s no fair The way you shake your ass in here I want them all Don’t they hear me call? So come on down to the underground And have a big fat ball Don’t you feel it? The sweaty brotherhood in here With all this love to choose from Who’s got time for fear? Gettin’ ready It’s living time again It’s living time again Get We’re gettin’ ready For living time again It’s living time Now I know it I’m gonna do what I gotta do Ain’t that better When there’s nothing ‘tween me and you? You can touch it Or have a look if you like No time to cry Don’t even try No rules tonight Now I’m gonna I’m gonna get my freedom on Limits of the skies above When the guilt’s all gone It’s what we’re so damn good at You do it to me every time So don’t wait in line This is it It’s in your mind Get it? It’s living time!

Feel my love and feel my rug Just like the clouds above Get out my way or I’m gonna shove My heart’s so full of love Feel my love and feel my power Papa’s gonna give you a real good shower Got so much like the skies above Get out my way or I’m gonna shove Feel my love and feel my power Papa’s gonna get you in the shower Get out his was or he’s gonna shove His heart’s so full of love Feel my rug and feel my love Just like the clouds above Get out my way or I’m gonna shove My heart’s so full of love

Paxil 03:37
Deserted and crowded Vertical island Voices outside my door I can’t ignore And they say You better come on You better get it while you can Staring at screens And looking out windows I’d love to be there but my heart hangs low Staring at screens And looking out windows I’d love to be there Maybe I’ll stay a while With Jonny Freestyle His words come in a box And I think that rocks You better come on You better get it while you can Now what am I gonna do with you? You can keep your friendship interview Don’t need that when my eyes are glued I’d love to be there

Want 03:39
When I sit here And listen to the past I think out loud I wanna make you proud I think out loud Everybody, everyone My heart’s so full So full of want Flashes of memory Come back now Who was that on the couch I’m trying to be good It’s no porno This is the real thing I’m your sweet cat That crawled right in Don’t wanna hurt you I don’t deserve you You must see something I don’t see So let’s open our eyes In another rented room We got no money Just lazy in love Flashes of memory Come back back Who was that on the couch I’m trying to be good

Old Hands 05:01
All the lights Neon kino Reach the heights Get real low Don’t look at me With children’s eyes I’m just a child A child inside I saw it And I did it I can do bad by myself I wanted to get my feet wet Now I’m thousands in debt I wanted to live the life But that shit ain’t right Even though I got no game I can’t wait for the night to start Just the same Don’t look at me With children’s eyes Cuz I’m a child A child inside Look at these old hands
