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

White Bitch 03:38
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

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

Little Japan 04:14
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

The Sound 03:43
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
