Dead Giveaway

I knew somethin' was wrong
When a little pretty white girl
Ran into a black man's arms

Dead giveaway, dead giveaway
My neighbor got big testicles
'Cause we see this dude everyday
We eat ribs with this dude
But we didn't have a clue
If that girl was in that house
She said, 'Please help me get out'

Dead giveaway, dead giveaway
My neighbor got big testicles
'Cause we see this dude everyday
We eat ribs with this dude
But we didn't have a clue
If that girl was in that house
She said, 'Please help me get out'

So I opened the door, we can't get in that way
A body can't fit through the door, only your hand
So we kick-kicked the bottom
And she comes out, and she says
It's some more girls up in that house
Call 911 and they caught him
At McDonald's

I knew somethin' was wrong
When a little pretty white girl
Ran into a black man's arms

Dead giveaway, dead giveaway
My neighbor got big testicles
'Cause we see this dude everyday
We eat ribs with this dude
But we didn't have a clue
If that girl was in that house
She said, 'Please help me get out'

Thousands of Barack Obamas

Hi guys. I'm so sick of talking about this topic.
There's thousands of Barack Obamas.
He's posting swastikas and penises.
Please please please make it stop.
Jesus Christ, Barack Obama, and Adolf Hitler they're posting ASCII art of genitalia.
I'm begging you find a way to fix this please it's killing me.
There's thousands of Jesus Christs they're linking to viruses linking to porn.
Pooooorn!
What are you thinking?
What are you doing?
I'm begging you find a way to fix this please it's killing me.
Swastikas. And penises.
Viruses. And porn.
Swastikas. And penises.
Viruses. And genitalia.
Swastikas. And penises.
Viruses. Garbage.
Swastikas. And penises.
Viruses. And thousands of Barack Obamas.

The War On Drugs Is a Failure

We need to repeal the whole war on drugs
It isn't working
We don't have to have more courts and more prisons
This has to change
This has to change

Prohibition didn't work
Prohibition on drugs doesn't work
We have spent over 400 billion dollars
It's a waste of money

We need to come to our senses
Let's put down the guns and unclench the fists
We need to come to our senses
Yeah, we don't treat alcoholics like this
We need to come to our senses
Prohibition failing harder than 1926
We need to come to our senses
We don't treat alcoholics like this

Too many people doin' time
Somebody tell me - when did recreation become a crime?
It's bright-eyed kids we're sendin into prison
They go in as superheroes and come out supervillains

Could have had more Einsteins, more Magellans,
But we made a thousand Al Capone level felons.
Take out a dealer and ten more appear
So let's ban curing cancer, we'll cure it within a year.

We need to come to our senses

Of 50,000 arrests, 82% were black and hispanic
These arrests stigmatize, they criminalize
Making it harder to find a job
Making it harder to get into school
Making it harder to turn their lives around
It must end and it must end now

The war on drugs, while well-intentioned, has been a failure
We're warehousing addicted people every day in state prisons
Giving them no treatment, sending them back on the street
And wondering why they don't get better
Why they commit crimes again
Well, they commit crimes to support their addiction

The war on drugs is a failure
Put down the guns and unclench the fists
The war on drugs is a failure
We don't treat alcoholics like this
The war on drugs is a failure
Prohibition's failing more than in 1926
The war on drugs is a failure
We don't treat alcoholics like this

The cops got better things to do anyway
Like stop real crimes instead of wasting time
Chasing that mary jane
Stoned people don't start fights
No, they don't
Stoned people don't rob banks
Not even close
The worst thing stoned people do
Is steal their roommate's oreos
And that's a misdemeanor at most
A misdemeanor at most
A misdemeanor at most

The Boy From Port Manteau

If you can hear me
Then please come over here, be near me
I'm just a boy from Port Manteau
Became a man in Aches-les-Pains
And there I learned
Inside an urge to scream
But when my lips do part, I seem
To cheat myself, transform
My cry to music, sweet and warm

~

We talk like thunder
The truth of it lies deep down under
I'm just a boy from Port Manteau
How can I go to Cope-in-Heaven
Now, the vow?

There seemed to be straight lines
Just like geometry inclines
But now I just don't know
I'm still a boy from Port Manteau

There seemed to be straight lines
Just like geometry inclines
But now I just don't know
I'm still a boy from Port Manteau

smash, Smash, SMASH!

People Say don't hitchhike.
Well, good think I was hitchhiking
That woman was in danger
So I ran up behind him with a hatchet
SMASH
SMASH
SMASH
Yeah, Yeah
If he'd started driving that car again
There'd be a hell of a lot of bodies round here
Dude, that guy was fucking kooked out
He can snap a woman's neck like a pencil stick
So I started smashing him in the head

SMASH
SMASH
SMASH

No matter what you've done you deserve respect
Even if you make mistakes, you lovable
Doesn't matter your looks, skills, or age
Or size or anything
Your worthwhile
No one can ever take that away from you

Your worthwhile
No one can ever take that away from you

I was in the passenger side of this fucker's car
And he's like, you know what?
I've come to realize I'm Jesus Christ
And I can do anything I fucking want to
BAM, he smashed into this guy right there
Two women are trying to help him
He grabs one of them
So I ran up behind him with a hatchet
SMASH
SMASH
SMASH
Yeah, Yeah

If he'd started driving that car again
There'd be a hell of a lot of bodies round here
Dude, that guy was fucking kooked out

Spanish Steps

Must have been walking
Don't know this place
Somebody stopped talking
Is it written in my face

Thought I'd never leave you
Thought I'd never dare
But I watched you going under
That's a thought I could not bear

Five thousand miles I'm away from you
Drifting by the Spanish steps tonight
Guess you've got my number
Guess you got my line
Guess you've got my number
Should I be on your mind

Late at night your footsteps
Barefoot on the floor
Tender eyes from sleeping
In the darkened corridor

I come up the stairway
My naked enemy
Comes stumbling towards me
Wish I could set you free

Five thousand miles I'm away from you
Drifting by the Spanish steps tonight
Guess you've got my number
Guess you got my line

Five thousand miles I'm away from you
Sleeping by the Spanish steps tonight
Guess you've got my number
Should I be on your mind
I'm not that hard to find

Five thousand miles I'm away from you
Drifting by the Spanish steps tonight
Guess you've got my number
Guess you've got my line

Five thousand miles I'm away from you
Sleeping by the Spanish steps tonight
Guess you've got my number
Guess you've got my line
I'm not that hard to find

Safe With Me

Like a call of the wild
You were a part of me
Like a dark road at night
I know what I cannot see
But you had to be, had to be – free
And I had to be, had to be – me

Aaah
You were safe with me
You were safe with me
Aaah
You were safe with me
You were safe with me

I get oceans of time
Now I don't look for it
I get to walk a blurry line
Into the heart of it
And it comes to me, comes to me
Like a silent scream
And it looks to be
How it all begins

Aaah
You were safe with me
You were safe with me
Aaah
You were safe with me
You were safe with me
Aaah
You will stay with me
You will stay with me
Aaah
You were safe with me
You were safe with me

Into the heart of it
Make it wrong, make it right
You were a part of me

Aaah
You were safe with me
You were safe with me
Aaah
You were safe with me
You were safe with me

Like a call of the wild
You will stay with me
You will stay with me
Like a dark road at night
You were safe with me
You were safe with me

Winter Garden

I walk upon a snowy linen land
With a blood red rose crushed inside my hand
Find the place where it is you've laid
Ever since the angels took you away
Since you've been gone, nothing's been the same
I'm not here to visit, I've come here to stay

These colors lay forgotten
In God's winter garden

I walk upon a snowy linen land
With a blood red rose crushed inside my hand
Find the place where it is you've laid
Ever since the angels took you away
I'm a weak person
Silver thorn crushed my vein
I see the red but I don't feel the pain

These colors lay forgotten
In God's winter garden

Undertow

Call me Claudia
I can't stand the sound of my own name
I've covered the mirrors with collages
To conceal the shame

The undertow pulls me low
Ice
It's ice cold
I felt Ophelia reaching out
For my hand oh but she missed
As the moon gently hissed
Goddamned undertow

Soft as sand
Yet as hard as a wave
This blood on my hands is here to stay
Ophelia's doing somersaults on my lawn
And she wants me to come out and play

The undertow pulls me low
Ice
It's ice cold
I felt Ophelia reaching out
For my hand oh but she missed
As the moon gently hissed
Goddamned undertow

The weight of water on the soul
I'm drowning inside and no-one knows
It could drown any sign of hope
Oh but life is such a slippery slope

The undertow pulls me low
Ice
It's ice cold
I felt Ophelia reaching out
For my hand oh but she missed
As the moon gently hissed
Goddamned undertow

Snow White

I will throw myself head first from the carriage for you and
When they lowered your body into the ground
They lowered my heart too
The people have all come and gone
Seen the grand funeral show
They're all in their warm homes tonight
I'm still here I'll never let go

I will stay forever here with you by your side
The snow falling down, I can't feel my heart
But I will stay, your Snow White
Frozen in time...
Sound asleep by your side

I'm bleeding and screaming
I'm crying and dying for you to open your eyes
Can you feel me? Are you near me?
I'm still alive

I will stay forever here with you by your side
The snow falling down, I can't feel my heart
But I will stay, your Snow White
Frozen in time
Sound asleep by your side

I will stay forever here with you by your side
The snow falling down, I can't feel my heart
But I will stay, your Snow White
Frozen in time
Sound asleep by your side

Piece of my soul

He stormed the gates at morning
He was inside by evening
A ragged man in ragged clothes
Too sad to live, too proud to die
Athousand blades of envy
Green Keeping you from my side

Without you here
I need you to Know
That you are the missing
Piece of my soul
Without you here
I need you to Know
That you are the missing
Piece of my soul

The sun taunts my tongue
The wind in my hair
Soon they will find me there
I'm never going to leave your side
And when the groundskeeper
Comes let him find
My lifeless body by your stone
I don't care now
I'm crawling home
To the only love
My heart has ever known

Without you here
I need you to Know
That you are the missing
Piece of my soul
Without you here
I need you to Know
That you are the missing
Piece of my soul

It's too late now
No turning back
I make the cut, i do it fast
So this is what it's like to die
Again beneath a laughing sky
Your smiling face
It's over now we're
In another place
This life was merely
A bad dream
Reality is eternity

Without you here
I need you to Know
That you are the missing
Piece of my soul
Without you here
I need you to Know
That you are the missing
Piece of my soul

Living Room

Floating through my old living room
Shifting in and out of view
And i'm just watching you living
I'm just watching you
Floating through my old living room
Shifting in and out of view
And i'm just watching you breathing
I'm just watching you

And i'd give up Heaven just to hold you tonight

Floating through my old office room
Papers lying so askew and i'm only thinking
I'm only thinking of you
I watch you sleep, I kiss your cheek
Tell me love can you feel me as i'm just
Watching you dreaming I'm just Watching you dreaming I'm just watching you

And i'd give up Heaven just to hold you tonight

So when you go to the window
I'll turn on the stars and let you
Fall so far into my arms that we'll be
All the way alive again
Oh again

And i'd give up Heaven just to touch you
And i'd give up Heaven just to hold you tonight
Floating through
Out of view
Heaven is you

Flower

We were lied to
We know the truth now, don't we
Pulled the wool over our eyes
There's nowhere to hide

Wear a flower in your hair each Monday
To show what side you're on
Wear a flower in your hair on Monday
To show what side you're on
Cause we're not laughing
And we're forgotten

We were lied to yet we sit and stare
At the television like we don't care
You were lied to now 2,000 men are dead
I can feel the rain pouring down
Upon our conscious in our heads

Wear a flower in your hair each Monday
To show what side you're on
Wear a flower in your hair on Monday
To show what side you're on
Cause we're not laughing
And we're forgotten

You were lied to, get off your ass
If you don't want the future to repeat the past

February

I was a child
He was a child
In a land not so far fromthe sea
Such a cold, cold night
The angels betrayed me
Their beauty is like
The sharp end of a knife
God had His favourite angel
Wearing a wire that night

February
Not Annabelle Lee
February
Wait for me

I used to skate
Across a fozen lake
Out by the woods
The best i could
I know the taste of ice
As it shifts and breaks

February
Not Annabelle Lee
February
Wait for me

Out of my Hands

Take it out of my hands and let it fly
I am not afraid to die
Not afraid to die

Lift it out of my heart and see it shine
We are only ever alive
Only ever alive

~

When the leaves are falling to the ground
They don't make a sound
They don't make a sound

So take me where I can meet the familiar unknown
We are always ever home
Always ever home

~

When my thoughts no longer drift around
I can see a shadow wall
Come tumbling down

Fair Verona

Fair Verona
Where are you?
I'm standing on a balcony,
Looking down for all to see
Looking for you

Fair Verona, Fair Verona

And fair Verona
Where has my Romeo gone
He has disappeared
With the coming of the dawn

Fair Verona
Fair Verona
Fair Verona

Faery Lullaby

Hush
Sleep
Close your eyes and dream
You don't have to be afraid because in my arms you are safe
Sleep
Sleep
I'll light you a candle
We'll watch the dark shadows fade
Nobody could ever take your place
Sleep
Sleep
Close your eyes and dream
You don't have to be afraid because in my arms you are safe
Sleep
Sleep

Raining In My Heart

Another night alone with broken wings
Regretting you among other things

And i know she's with you
And i know you're with her
But it's raining in my heart
You promised me we'd never part
I'm so tired of being tired
This tearing me apart
Cause it's raing in my heart
Raining in my heart

I believed in you and me
I thought that we would always be
Now the night's here and i'm cold and alone
Without a love to call my home

And i know she's with you
And i know you're with her
But it's raining in my heart
You promised me we'd never part
I'm so tired of being tired
This tearing me apart
Cause it's raing in my heart
Raining in my heart

What can i tell you?
What can i possibly say?
You were my lover
And you were my killer
Why did you throw me away?

Chasing the Ghost

My eyes are tired from the things I've seen
My mouth is dry from tasting poisoned leaves
I've been in a haze of green
Like needles in my skin
Feels like i could bleed

Chasing the ghost
Feeding the fix
Ignoring our souls

Passing the cup
Making it last til the last drop
Passing the pipe
Oh my god we're losing this fight

Chasing the ghost
Feeding the fix
Ignoring our souls

In these chains i can't be free
I'm not doing drugs
The drugs are doing me
Sleeping in the streets
So cold i can't feel my feet

Chasing the ghost
Feeding the fix
Ignoring our souls

Carbon Monoxide

If you happen to walk by and see
The door is cracked
Don't bother looking
My letters are on the kitchen table
For you to read
I'm sorry i'm not the daughter you needed to me to be

Now i dream
Carbon monoxide
Set me free
Carbon monoxide
Window to eternity
Please forgive me

I want to dance with you again
The only thing keeping us apart is my skin
I'll just cut and set myself free
If that's the only way you can be with me

Now i dream
Carbon monoxide
Set me free
Carbon monoxide
Window to eternity
Please forgive me

Your body's been dead since September
But i still remember
My blood whispers your name
My spirit waits for you to take me away

I don't want to live one more day
Nothing left inside me is sane

Carbon Monoxide
Carbon Monoxide
Forgive me

Invisible Catastrophe

Eternally contained
Within four walls of stained glass
Windows remains
An artificial sacrifice
To idolize the ways
Of a life in which was meant
To lift the burdens we crave
An invisible catastrophe
Involuntary plague
The fear is in fine print
Infectious parade
Invested in those
In over ten thousand ways
A path left unpaved
Self-inflicted debt paid
Through an invisible catastrophe

Let go
You can't not let go
Your cognitive dissonance
Indifference is broke
Even egos know their limits
Now we all must
Let go
We can't not let go
Your lack of perspective is infected
By your lack of attention
Used as weapons
Are you listening?

We're moving through life
Where a man with no sight
Could justifiably deny
That it's he who's gone blind
Where self-loathing is learned
And love is a crime
Chained to the pages we turn
We're reminded
Accept is the view
As our guilt becomes virtue
Our conscience confused
I'm sorry but who's failed who?
Choose me or lose
You're abusing the broken
Through promise but proof
Is the invisible catastrophe

Let go
You can't not let go
Your cognitive dissonance
Indifference is broke
Even egos know their limits
Now we all must
Let go
We can't not let go
Your lack of perspective is infected
By your lack of attention
Used as weapons
Are you listening?

Let go
You can't not let go
Your cognitive dissonance
Indifference is broke
Even egos know their limits
Now we all must
Let go
We can't not let go
Your lack of perspective is infected
By your lack of attention
Used as weapons
Are you listening?

Let go
You can't not let go
Your cognitive dissonance
Indifference is broke
Even egos know their limits
Now we all must
Let go
We can't not let go
Your lack of perspective is infected
By your lack of attention
Used as weapons
Are you listening?

Song For Whoever

I love you from the bottom of my pencil case
I love you in the songs I write and sing
Love you because you put me in my rightful place
And I love the PRS cheques that you bring

Cheap, never cheap
I'll sing you songs till you're asleep
When you've gone upstairs I'll creep
And write it all down, down, down, down

Oh Shirley, oh Deborah, oh Julie, oh Jane
I wrote so many songs about you I forget your name
(I forget your name)
Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue
Deborah, Annabel, too
(I forget your name)
Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue
Deborah, Annabel, too
(I forget your name)

I love your from the bottom of my pencil case
I love the way you never ask me why
I love to write about each wrinkle on your face
And I love you till my fountain pen runs dry

Deep, so deep
The number one I hope to reap
Depends upon the tears you weep
So cry, lovely, cry
Cry, cry, cry...

Oh Cathy, oh Alison, oh Phillipa, oh Sue
You made me so much money I wrote this song for you
(I wrote this song for you)

Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue
Deborah, Annabel, too
(I wrote this song for you)
Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue
Deborah, Annabel, too
(For you)

Oh Cathy, oh Alison, oh Phillipa, oh Sue
You made me so much money I wrote this song for you
(I wrote this song for you)

Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue
Deborah, Annabel, too
(I wrote this song for you)
Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue
Deborah, Annabel, too
(For you, for you, for you, I wrote this song for you)
(I wrote this song for you)

Catch Me On Fire

One who needs me, are you not?
One who's living on borrowed thoughts
How you see me?
How you want force-feed
The feeling that keeps you warm?
Your words have paid their dues
But we'll leave the light on
We'll celebrate your feud
By feeding the lion

I hope you won't
Catch me on fire
Holy divider
I know you won't
Catch me inside
The web of your liar

One who's breathing, are you not?
Consciously beating your ruthless heart
Furnished feelings infect us all
Thus concealing just who we are
Lose some and some may lose
But they'll leave the light on
They feed off you
As you keep feeding the lion

I hope you won't
Catch me on fire
Holy divider
I know you won't
Catch me inside
The web of your liar

All I wanted was a little anonymity
Not the pedestal you needed to control me
Then place the burden on coercive ambiguity
And nominate the ghost you made
To designate an enemy

All you want is to control me (x8)

I hope you won't
Catch me on fire
Holy divider
I know you won't
Catch me inside
The web of your liar

I hope you won't
Catch me on fire
Holy divider
I know you won't
Catch me inside
The web of your liar

Hold On

Abandon fear and flaws exposed
Equipped with indefinite highs and 'let go's
Unclear, still in control
Steady as we fall
Thoughts escape the prison skull
Freedom clears a path to follow
We wait, but will we go
And swallow what we're told?

A future of limits and incapabilities
Left to believe all there has been is everything
Separate are dreams to distinguish reality
Never pass up on a chance we

Hold on
Hold on
You're on the edge and falling off
Don't think about all that you've lost
Think of why you hold on
You hold on
You're on the edge and falling off
Don't think about all that you've lost
Think of why you hold on

Shake your fear, defend your soul
Regret is a measurement defined by ego
Still here, but soon we go
Our story left untold
Guilt and fear, paid in full
Drown out the sound or continue the cycle
We wait but will we go
And swallow what we're told?

A future of limits and incapabilities
Left to believe all there has been is everything
Separate are dreams to distinguish reality
Never pass up on a chance we

Hold on
Hold on
You're on the edge and falling off
Don't think about all that you've lost
Think of why you hold on
You hold on
You're on the edge and falling off
Don't think about all that you've lost
Think of why you hold on

In a world where everything you've seen
Has no room for doubt, no questioning
Separate the pain from identity

Hold on
Hold on
You're on the edge and falling off
Don't think about all that you've lost
Think of why you hold on
You hold on
You're on the edge and falling off
Don't think about all that you've lost
Think of why you hold on

The Forgiver

The truth is this crucifix holds you
You don't hold it
Shown like a picture
This fixture sells scripture
To self-conscious sinners
Through subconscious whispers
So strip the beginners
Their right to see clearer and

Should the death of a life be the wager?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Would the lesson divide the together
Fasting your heart to build the divide?
Should the truth be disguised?
Should you ever think twice?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Should you trust or deny the forgiver
Haunted by those with freedom of doubt?

The truth is this recklessness
Loving on purpose shit
Adds to the conflict
This circus of lifelessness
Holding and pleading
Disastrously breeding
The signs with old theories
Your egos are steering and

Should the death of a life be the wager?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Would the lesson divide the together
Fasting your heart to build the divide?
Should the truth be disguised?
Should you ever think twice?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Should you trust or deny the forgiver
Haunted by those with freedom of doubt?

Growth defeating, thoughtless healing
Stealing from the hands you're feeding
Seeing, breathing, broken meaning
Sickening the chance we need
Defining reasons based on feelings
Passed down from a book you're reading
Surely we cannot believe
The past creates the now we're breathing
Growth defeating, thoughtless healing
Stealing from the hands you're feeding
Future bleeding, broken meaning
Sickening the chance we need and

Should the death of a life be the wager?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Would the lesson divide the together
Fasting your heart to build the divide?
Should the truth be disguised?
Should you ever think twice?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Should you trust or deny the forgiver
Haunted by those with freedom of doubt?

Should the death of a life be the wager?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Would the lesson divide the together
Fasting your heart to build the divide?
Should the truth be disguised?
Should you ever think twice?
Ask not why, for they'll single you out
Should you trust or deny the forgiver
Haunted by those with freedom of doubt?

The World As Broken

You are the venomous
Empty brilliance
I am upset with what I've become
I am defenseless, hardly broken
I am irrelevant with what I have done
What have I done?

Etched in skin like scars I'm left with
Swept beneath my sin
Just to keep the surface from caving in
Chased by the end of a book not written
Yet somehow I'm condemned
Defeat the fire or be the fire within

Take, take
Or be the one who gave in
Break, break
Or be the one who lives
Wait, wait
And leave the world as broken
To justify the end

You're free to give in but
Damned if you dare to
Taught to forgive
While the hate lies within you
Feel trapped in your skin
You can't comprehend
He who preaches through silence
Denies us our privilege

Caged in glass
My chaos trapped
And wrapped inside my skin
Paint my past with cold dead hands
Convince me who I am

Take, take
Or be the one who gave in
Break, break
Or be the one who lives
Wait, wait
And leave the world as broken
To justify the end

You're free to give in but
Damned if you dare to
Taught to forgive
As the hate lies within you
Feel trapped in your skin
You can't comprehend
He who preaches through silence
Denies us our privilege

Right to defend
Our doubts in regard to
Who we should be
When the answers involves you
The beat in my chest is
The absence I've turned to
Losing is closure
If I'm who designed you

I Engineer

Don't count on me, I engineer
On every move we make from here
I'll take the lead
You take the pain
You see, I engineered this game

Who do you think you fool when you talk about us?
Why do you walk on glass when you know it cuts?
There must be a reason why
You put my life in overdrive
I'm up to here with push and shove
From here on in, I've had enough!

Don't count on me, I engineer
On every move we make from here
I'll take the lead
You take the pain
You see, I engineered this game

I'll leave it all behind in a cloud of dust
There's an even chance I'll shine or rust
On my own I've got the time
There's a light ahead at the end of the line
Seeing you leaves me no doubt
I'll take the wheel from here on out

Don't count on me, I engineer
On every move we make from here
I'll take the lead
You take the pain
You see, I engineered this game

On my own I've got the time
There's a light ahead at the end of the line
Seeing you leaves me no doubt
I'll take the wheel from here on out

Don't count on me, I engineer
On every move we make from here
I'll take the lead
You take the pain
You see, I engineered...

My Past

They think they know me, they didn't even meet me yet
I can't believe how ignorant all these people get
He bought his house with drug money, he's in debt (heh)
He's got a new girl - I wonder if he beats her yet (come on)
I'm sittin' back like 'why am I even getting mad?
It's the first non-abusive relationship I've had.'
And yeah I'm proud of it, turned into a father
A dad, produced a beautiful daughter, inspired to produce tracks
Now I'm back, but where exactly did I even go?
Rarely even leave the city, barely even leave my home
All these fucken big shots, the eagle's gotta go
Cause physically stay in place, but spiritually I roam
I did some soul searching (yep)
Yeah I found myself (yep)
I'm not the old person who was always down and out, found some help (aww)
Surround myself with positive people, but they might as well be negative
All my past negligence set precedence

Nobody's giving me a break cause of my past mistakes
I know my reputation looks bad (looks bad)
But you gotta believe me, my life ain't been easy
Why you gotta treat me like that (like that)?
Cause I swear I got a big heart, and I just want a fresh start
I'm trying to get my life on the right track (right track)
Forget what I once was, man, trying to grow up
Quit judging me because of my past (my past)

Every time I start new, people start to notice and don't look at the change
They look back on mistakes
And every single time that I start to get something good going
Someone's right there to throw my fucking past in my face
Oh you used to be that, yeah you used to do this. Ain't you that rapper guy that..
(Yeah that's me)
...who must have convinced, so prove to whom to prove to you that the new me is formed
Reborn -- not sixteen anymore! (Ugh!)
Almost twenty-four, ain't even twenty-one no more
I don't chill with those losers, and I ain't fuckin' that whore
The me who wants to, ain't the one anymore
But keep talking about me, cause man it's fun to ignore (hah)
Only time it really bugs me is when I'm having a bad day
When I feel negative, so I think of it that way
Get all deep in thought, then I realise the facts (oh yeah)
Man I need you to yap -- it's the reason I rap

Nobody's giving me a break cause of my past mistakes
I know my reputation looks bad (looks bad)
But you gotta believe me, my life ain't been easy
Why you gotta treat me like that (like that)?
Cause I swear I got a big heart, and I just want a fresh start
I'm trying to get my life on the right track (right track)
Forget what I once was, man, trying to grow up
Quit judging me because of my past (my past)

Gotta counsel these people
They don't understand that I've become a man (they're all confused)
Yeah I've done evil, but I did the crime, did the time and I've (paid all my dues)
Man you think it's that simple (uhh), like wiping your ass, or picking a pimple (nah)
It isn't that simple, it isn't that easy (nope)
Cause you gotta be brave to change, cause these people's brains remain the same
Gotta make 'em believe (yeah, yeah)!
If you accomplish that feat, what a thing you achieve
Got to the point, with me, I made it my dream
Had to change my reputation, and not just for me
But for my baby girl, carrying my Spratt name, shares with me my last name
Now I'm looking at fame like it's life
Don't have it, but don't want it (nah)
Just wanna be a father. All I want is my daughter
[I DON'T WANNA BE BOTHERED, BUT]

Nobody's giving me a break cause of my past mistakes
I know my reputation looks bad (looks bad)
But you gotta believe me, my life ain't been easy
Why you gotta treat me like that (like that)?
Cause I swear I got a big heart, and I just want a fresh start
I'm trying to get my life on the right track (right track)
Forget what I once was, man, trying to grow up
Quit judging me because of my past (my past)

Just Once

Dear father,
Can you clarify this fiction you speak with?
The blind have organized
Confusing the sides
The language is different
The corporation found a way
To monetize the inscription
Convinced an afterlife
It's cursed with the burden
To kill for admission

If no one defines
Where the boundaries lie
It's no wonder why
We're desensitized
Why are you lost for words?
And why can you just not respond
Or need time to revise your old version of lies?
We just need you to show up on time
Just once!
Just once!

It seems the races have decided
To take pride in their difference
Then fight with conviction
Determined the color of man
Defines their intentions
Just clarify!
Just one reply!
Just one more time!
Fucking pick a side!

If no one defines
Where the boundaries lie
It's no wonder why
We're desensitized
Why are you lost for words?
And why can you just not respond
Or need time to revise your old version of lies?
We just need you to show up on time
Just once!
Just once!

We scream when it's our time to listen
Our flaws by our own definition
Some die from self-righteous indifference
With the book in their hand
Not the hand of their children

Why are you lost for words?
And why can you just not respond
Or need time to revise your old version of lies?
We just need you to show up on time
Just once!
Just once!
Just once!
Just once!

Crunch Time

Shivers - I just can’t believe it
Love has got a meaning
Ever since we met m-met – m-met up
Strangers, only without knowing
Feelings keep on growing
Make me wanna love ya - love ya right there
What you give - what you give – What you give to me
Is what I love – what I love - what I love to see
So here we are - here we are -
There’s no stoppin’ this

I can hear you – and what ur gonna say
I wanna feel you in every kinda way
Baby it’s Crunch Time, Crunch Time, Crunch Time
Baby it’s Crunch Time, Crunch Time, Crunch Time
We got it good to go there’s no wastin’ time
Write it from the heart never wastin’ lines
Cos it ‘s Crunch Time Crunch Time, Crunch Time
Baby it’s Crunch Time

Gold is not what you’re in love with
Not a dime a dozen
Baby you’re my diam-diam-diamond
I know that we have both been places
Lovers, hearts & faces
But please don’t hold this back

To all the girls around the world
Let me hear you say Weejoow
To all my fellows round the world
Let me hear you say Weejoow
If you know what I’m talking about
Raise your hands and sing it loud
To all my peeps around the world
Let me hear you say Weejoow
'cause you know it is
