Track Name: Hat Trick
HAT TRICK


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
Track Name: From The Rocking Chair (To The Stage)
FROM THE ROCKING CHAIR (TO THE STAGE)

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
Track Name: Beautiful
BEAUTIFUL

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
Track Name: No Dancing
NO DANCING

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
Track Name: Another Fantasy Shot To Hell
ANOTHER FANTASY SHOT TO HELL

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
Track Name: Living Time
LIVING TIME

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!
Track Name: My Rug (featuring Namosh)
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
Track Name: Paxil
PAXIL

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
Track Name: Want
WANT

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
Track Name: Old Hands
OLD HANDS

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
