Track Name: IDWK
I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know
What it feels like to be normal
So I’ll take my sideways eyes n’ go
And I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know
What it feels like to be gorgeous
These days your beauty's bought and sold

Well I could stay and obey
But I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know
I how it feels to behave
No I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know
Chances are I’m gonna crash and burn it
But fuck it oh well
Who will know if nobody ever goes?

I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know
What it feels like to be misunderstood
So I cut the censor from my mouth
And I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know
What it feels like to be in regret
So I will see all that time allows

Well I could stay and obey
But I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know
I how it feels to behave
No I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know
Chances are I’m gonna crash and burn it
But fuck it oh well
Who will know if nobody ever goes?
Yeah who will know if nobody ever goes?

Well I could stay and obey
But I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know
I how it feels to behave
No I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know I don’t wanna know
Chances are I’m gonna crash and burn it
But fuck it oh well
Who will know if nobody ever goes?
Yeah who will know if nobody ever goes?
Track Name: Oh My
Some days my impulses get the best of me
Grabbing on to it all until I got no money
Well I’m window shopping ain’t stoppin for nothin
All the pretty ladies got a fresh coat of paint and they poppin
Among these hollow body honeys I'm a brand new beast
I’ve been starving for months but now it’s time that I feast
I’m sayin

Oh my oh my oh I just wanna take you home I
Oh my you bout as sweet as honeycomb I
My my tap the phone and you’ll be all mine
Yeah well put it on credit and we can get it
Girl git it
God knows we can git it
Anytime you want yeah you can git it

Some days I'm stumbling all over my passion
Staring at all the pretty faces while they passin
To the right to the left mysterious silhouettes
Yeah they make my head swivel and pirouette
And now I'm falling in love every five feet that I step
Stoic and kind yeah but deep down inside
I'm sayin

Oh my oh my oh I just wanna take you home I
Oh my you bout as sweet as honeycomb I
My my five minutes and you’ll be all mine
Honey anytime you want yeah you can get it
Girl git it
God knows we can git it
Anytime you want yeah you can git it

Ah you make me say oh my oh my
Oh I just wanna take you home I
Oh my you bout as sweet as honeycomb I
My my one day you will be all mine
Work that layaway and we can get it
Girl git it
God knows we can git it
Anytime you want yeah you can git it
Track Name: Lookin So Cool
Well I’ve been feeling down
You come along to bring me up
I’ve been void of affection
You come by all full of love
I've been twisting and writhing
You come and help me to relax
I've been cheating and lying
You come along and kick my ass

Yeah oh darlin I've been running up and down
The streets of this lonely town
Looking for somebody to turn me around, and
I was in a free fall for the bottom babe until I see you
Oh cos baby you just look so cool

I’ve been feeling crazy
You come along and make me sane
I was burning from both ends baby
You came along and brought the rain
I’ve been quivering and shaking
You come along to hold me down
I’ve been bending and breaking
You show me I’m just working my weakness out

Yeah oh darlin I've been running up and down
The streets of this lonely town
Looking for somebody to turn me around, and
I was in a free fall for the bottom babe until I see you
Oh cos baby you just look so cool

Oh yeah baby you just look so cool
Babe you’re lookin so cool
Babe you’re lookin so cool
Babe you’re lookin so cool

Yeah but the million miles before stumbling over you
Are gone and forgotten to the rear of my view
And the shit that I’ve waded through over all of this time
Is suddenly so for gone from my mind

Well I was feeling grey
You came along to color me
Yeah and I was sleeping through my days
But you've beautifully awoken me

Yeah oh darlin I've been running up and down
The streets of this lonely town
Looking for somebody to turn me around, and
I was in a free fall for the bottom babe until I see you
Oh cos baby you just look so cool
Track Name: Ladybug
Pacing as I’m waiting for my ladybug to come around the corner
Dress polka-dotted on her
Time is crawling while I vibrate
Fawning her nirvana I never wanted to live within her absence
Candy canes and absinth
Help me to forget my hunger

But oh good god I can hear my lady coming now
And oh good lawd she gon’ turn this aching body out
Oh good golly miss molly when you come around
Ain't nothing in the world that could keep my two hands bound

Breathless getting restless and my chest is pounding like a bass drum
As she leave her bread crumbs
Gotta make it back ‘fore sunrise
The roar of her aura through the floor I feel it tickle with pleasure
Like rare Roman leather
Upon my skin it makes me tremble

But oh good god I can hear my lady coming now
And oh good lawd she gon’ turn this aching body out
Oh good golly miss molly when you come around
Ain't nothing in the world that could keep my two hands bound

Awakened elevated I gravitate towards hair of red haze
And ‘em freckled shoulder blades
Only sun and skin abounding

Oh good god I can hear my lady coming now
And oh good lawd I done turned that little body out
Oh good golly miss molly when you come down
Have yourself a drag and we can throw in for another round
Track Name: Beatnik Boys
Faded black t-shirts
Calloused fingers hard down to the bone
Headlights pointed out to California
And no plans to ever make it home
Cigarette in ready lips
Scars of rebellion lingering in tow
Tattoos marking what we understand
And nobody else’ll ever know

Cos we were beatnik boys with nothing but a head full of soul
All we own is what we carryin’ sayin
I forged a mind from the boredom and now
I can’t be bothered to not be boogiein’

Starry eyed driver boy
Lead footed methodica never knew a doubt
Head in the heavens level with the gods
And no ropes to pull him down
Promiscuously vagabond
Counter culture Kerouac in us all
Even though we ain't making any money
I'm standing 50’ tall

Cos we were beatnik boys with nothing but a head full of soul
All we own is what we carryin’ sayin
I forged a mind from the boredom and now
I can’t be bothered to not be boogiein’

Well we’re surviving with a clever wit and daily we’re hanging by a thread
Pickin pockets like monkey stealin bread
Tank out of gas n’only enough cash for Arizona
But that’s alright I could make a fine life there in Sedona

Cos we were beatnik boys with nothing but a head full of soul
All we own is what we carryin’ sayin
I forged a mind from the boredom and now
I can’t be bothered to not be boogiein’
Track Name: Minnie Driver
Man these shindigs in these prim digs are always a drag
All the cool kids and the cruel kids dress in drag
You and I so much alike both so out of place
All the boys are wearing their cufflinks for fucks sake
If there’s anything I know know it’s how how to get your weeds out of a tumble
If there’s anything I know know it’s how cut the cake and get to the good stuff

So why don’t you come over here baby
Won’t you take center stage
Take all the time you need
To act up half your age
No reason to be shy
Turn up and act a fool
Ain’t nobody know better
How you’re supposed to do you

Ok so you showed up to this party but you don’t want anybody to know
With skin like Minnie Driver and a set of confident bones
Well you’ll never put that puzzle together unless you spread it around
Nothing magical ever happened while we were lookin down
Yeah but if there’s anything I know know it’s how how to not give a damn man
I don’t give a damn
If there’s anything I know know it’s how how to make good use of my pearly whites

So why don’t you come over here baby
Won’t you take center stage
Take all the time you need
To act up half your age
No reason to be shy
Turn up and act a fool
Ain’t nobody know better
How you’re supposed to do you

So I says to her I says, baby
Midnight is approaching and I don’t have anybody here to dance with me
So why don’t you trade that dress in for a sweater cos it looks like it’s withholding your motion
I’ll be waiting right here out in the open
Then I said to her, Soma
All we’ll do is get a bit older
So come down and sit on my sofa we can keep it light

So why don’t you come over here baby
Won’t you take center stage
Take all the time you need
To act up half your age
No reason to be shy
Turn up and act a fool
Ain’t nobody know better
How you’re supposed to do you
Track Name: Paid Up
Everything a mystery
All the words you said to me
My head was in the clouds
A blessing I can see you now
And I didn’t care where we were
Vision all ablur
Always out to get some more
From the hands I so adore

But I’m paid up
Thousand debts but I made amends
And I’m paid up
So don’t think twice just tell me yeah

I like when you sit next to me
Cos life has no guarantees
When is it enough to know
Oh I’m lying at the foot of your throne
So come and tell me how you feel
And I’ll show you how to be real
No one put your shackles on
Oh it's money that's the life-long con

But I’m paid up
Thousand debts but I made amends
And I’m paid up
So don’t think twice just tell me yeah

Well here I am, out of a jam and I’ve been been feeling alright
Got a new lease on a new life

But I’m paid up
Thousand debts but I made amends
And I’m paid up
So don’t think twice just tell me yeah
Said baby I’m paid up
Thousand debts but I made amends
And I’m paid up
So don’t think twice just tell me yeah
Track Name: Curtains Closed
Sitting here in the evening basking in the TV glow
And the whip cream on top of my coffee is how nobody knows
Well I sat outside
Til the moon hung high
Now it's way past midnight but I got time
Just give me the evening to can clear my mind
I’m so tangled up I'll knot if I don't unwind

Yeah you see, lately I ain't been leaving no footprints
But nobody's outside asking me the size of my shoes
And I know that you freshen like peppermint
Yeah but tonight just might be better without you cos
All at once I got time
Precious seconds to be whoever I incline
Oh it's about time that I got mine

Got a little rum a little lemonade
Just enough to last til the end of the day
Drink it slow curtains closed
Maybe I could string a few days in a row
Yeah baby that sounds so divine
I’m so tangled up I'll knot if I don't unwind

Yeah you see, lately I ain't been leaving no footprints
But nobody's outside asking me the size of my shoes
And I know that you freshen like peppermint
Yeah but tonight just might be better without you cos
All at once I got time
Precious seconds to be whoever I incline
Oh it's about time that I got mine

See the thing about me
Is I can make friends with different sides of myself
He's impressed by me I'm impressed by him
We theorize and drink wine in the kitchen
And we talk to each other until I fall asleep
Well today I’m the company I keep
Oh but I like him cos he's just like me

Ah yeah you see, lately I ain't been leaving no footprints
But nobody's outside asking me the size of my shoes
And I know that you freshen like peppermint
Yeah but tonight just might be better without you cos
All at once I got time
Precious seconds to be whoever I incline
Oh it's about time that I got mine
Track Name: Famous
Oh no
Babe I went bought the whole wide world for ya
Cos I adore ya cos I adore ya
Quick to overdose
N’then I went and bought the whole wide world for ya
Cos I adore ya cos I adore ya

Million dollar dame lays on the pavement
Says all the grey makes her look ageless
Well I'm just a twenty dollar man hundred dollar handsome
Bought me a bike and made it a tandem
We’ll ride with no hands and
We’ll make em look

Oh no
Babe I went bought the whole wide world for ya
Cos I adore ya cos I adore ya
Quick to overdose
N’then I went and bought the whole wide world for ya
Cos I adore ya but babe I can’t afford ya

Always in her shades she acts like she made it says all the poise makes her look famous
I’m like 20 minutes late punching above my weight and stumbling over words to her in a panic
But she says it’s romantic and it makes her cook

Oh no
Babe I went bought the whole wide world for ya
Cos I adore ya cos I adore ya
Quick to overdose
N’then I went and bought the whole wide world for ya
Cos I adore ya cos I adore ya
(Well It makes her look famous)
Oh no babe I went bought the whole wide world for ya
Cos I adore ya cos I adore ya
I I overdosed
And then I went and bought the whole wide world for ya
But I can’t afford ya
Track Name: Tell You What
The blues got a hold of me lately
And I can feel a warm wind trying to take me
The last of the memories driving me crazy
And try as I might I just can’t escape it
I can’t escape it

I’m sorry for my hands when they start their shaking
I’m just a stubborn boy out trying to make it
It’s alright if you gotta hate me
I’ll see you in your sunday morning paper baby

I tell you what baby you come around
To the lights on the dark side of town
I tell you what baby you come on by
And I won’t have to change your mind

Yeah but If I stand here waiting on a marigold
I’d be fading til I’m too old
So I’ll keep pacing for my time
To come

I tell you what baby you come around
To the lights on the dark side of town
I tell you what baby you come on by
And I won’t have to change your mind

I tell you what baby you come around
To the lights on the dark side of town
I tell you what baby you come on by
And I won’t have to change your mind
