Track Name: Culture Shock
Culture shock – bring me back and I won’t answer the bell
I never found a love like this
I swear I’d worship your ass
No one’s ever heard all them songs you wrote
And no one ever cares about the things you know in your head

I never found a love like this
You swear I talk just like your dad
The way I always grip the wheel
And how I compare the price of gas
No one’s ever heard all them songs you wrote
And no one ever cares about the things you know in your head

Your favorite part of being 21
Erasing your mind and then singing your songs
Driving them fields and wringing tie dye
There’s 21 grams and the light of your eye
When you’re dead

You never knew a ski resort or sterile museum hall
But you had a friend who took you out
You felt his weight over your pants
No one’s ever heard all them songs you wrote
And no one ever cares about the things you know in your head

Your favorite part of being 21
Erasing your mind and then singing your songs
Driving them fields and wringing tie dye
There’s 21 grams and the light of your eye
Your favorite part of resting your head
No need to answer no need to reply
Looking for flowers remembering a song
There’s 21 grams and the light in your eye
When you’re dead
Track Name: White Bitch
Dear help me I’m a Godless soul
I don’t speak the truth
I don’t self control
But I can sing like you wanna hear
If I were less attractive I would disappear

I ain’t playing around

And I don’t think that I was born too late
I don’t identify with your 60’s state
Yesterday I was called a white bitch
By two black girls but I get on with it

And I ain’t playing around


Educated in the public zones
When I finished up there
Well, I moved right home
Fell back in with South End girl
And she broke my heart
And gave terrible head
Drank until I was nearly dead
Then I gained fifteen but I ate grassfed
Dropped the handle
And I’m living clean
I got them internet woman
I’m gonna be happy

I ain’t playing around
Track Name: Grease and Women
I kiss my brother who is barely breathing
He says he lives for that grease and women
And maybe if we had prayed more deeply
We could have bought time instead of beauty
And can we go see your parent’s faces
Shit, I love them even though they’re racists

The West Coast brings you into our daylight
And you haven’t been here since we lost the fight
Machines always running in this atmosphere
And the condos show that we got the fear
We’re all so helpless
You better get outta the way

And didn’t I arrive like you wanted me
Singing that teenage lobotomy
Holding a plan and maybe some breakfast
I wearing my suit I got you a substance
All is dull and all is restless
So slap me around and tell me I’m useless
Track Name: Little Japan
Well, I heard you got a piece of Japan
Tattooed down the length of your hand
Truth is it hurt and he’s full of shit

Oh, wisdom can I take me a bow
Perhaps I better take it lying down
Most days it’s the chase that you serve with it
And I’m certain you’re the high flame I can’t quit

And I’ll shake like you want me to be
The demon crawling that can’t be me
You said love is a lame kid on your hip

Go on you be that wild one signing over you
Don’t you come around me signing over you
And yes there goes my own voice signing over you

Lend me a mistaken vibe
I promise I’m a natural high
The pricker of your skin is feigning his wit
And the longing for a home well you reek of it
Track Name: The Sound
I wanna see you around
I wanna get you down
To be the one in this town
That helps you channel the sound

Degenerate with me
I never said that you would be alright

Pass your hand over there
Now tell me what do you fear
Do you bleed like I bleed
Tell me what do you need
Your own place in the sun
But don’t you wanna have fun

We’ll take you out on a Saturday night
You’re looking good
Oh, yes you’re fine
I wanna know if you see like me
I really think that you could be free
We take you out on a Saturday night
You’re looking good
Oh, yes you’re fine
I wanna know if you bleed like me
I think you’ll get a real kick out of me

I wanna see you around
I wanna get you down
To be the one in this town
That helps you channel the sound

Degenerate with me
Don’t you wanna be free

And I don’t mind if I’m sleeping at night
