Track Name: Please Give Me
PLEASE GIVE ME

I walk the streets searching for somebody
And that somebody has no name
I walk the streets when I’m sleeping
When I’m sleeping is when I feel most awake
She has hair that sticks out everywhere
When she wears a ponytail and she just woke up
I warned her that I am just another poor
Man who has nothing to his name

First snow fall of the season
Gives me the feeling that I’m just a thought
Like a snowflake that just never lands
So I put on my suit as she puts on her makeup

Please give me what you don’t need
And I will try and do what I can with it
I will turn the night into day again
If you say again that you feel like you’re home

She walks the street searching for somebody
And that somebody isn’t me but her thoughts
Will change just like the leaves did
So I’ll put on my suit as she puts on her makeup
Track Name: Cucumbers
CUCUMBERS

Verse
Cold as cucumbers in July
Outfits and tangerines to boot
What goes around comes around
What goes around comes around
And you’re holding your grace as an apple pie
Baked fresh with morning
Cina-man is here
The morning man
The morning ----Man has come to tell us that
You havn't found your own ground
Well you havn't found your social ground
But now the time is here
The morning man
The morning has come with new, I...

Chorus
Well, You had your hands on My face
Me, wasted from your knees and embrace eye to eye
Captured in my own self-esteem
Me, Wasted from the blood in my finger tips

New Ideas

Verse
Hot as cucumbers in the glow
Apples and oranges too
What goes around comes around
What goes around comes around
And your holding your grace as an apple pie
Baked fresh with the morning
Cigarette is here
The morning man
The morning man has come to tell us that
You havn't found your own ground
You havn't found your social ground
But now the time is here
The morning man
The morning has come with new I...

Chorus
Well, You had your hands on My face
Me, wasted from your knees and embrace eye to eye
Captured in my own self-esteem
Me, Wasted from the blood in my finger tips-----
Track Name: Glass Brick
GLASS BRICK

I broke my finger nail again
Happens every time I lift
And she said
I lift you out these city walls
To bring my spirits from these bricks
And she said
Glass brick I’ve become
You make a novice out of me
And she said

Kitchen bound baby
I’ll sweat my arms to shame

I said give my teeth a rest
And thats all I needed
Give my teeth a rest
And thats all I needed

Well city bound baby
I’ll sweat my arms to shame ill say

Give my teeth a rest
And thats all I needed
Glass made process
And thats all I needed
Track Name: Ballad
BALLAD

I asked for the first kiss
Now I’m never gonna ask again
Because I know
So come, take a shot with Ralphie
The problem is still standing
At least we’re not alone
Faded hand tattoo you’re cuter than
Any button on the prettiest blouse
And I don’t know what to say
I’m a crack addict with his drugs taken away
And you love to dance,
But I only know slow songs
because my heart is a mess

And I shouldn’t have gone so far away
Because I met someone who looks exactly like you
She asked for my hand
I hope you understand
And she’s coming to live in our house

With skin like yours,
You don’t have to worry about getting burned
And you’re so fair,
That even your hair knows that I am torn
Faded hand tattoo I’m a crack addict
With his drugs taken away
And even when I don’t know what to say
You tell me to chill out and just go with the flow
And I might move to Mexico
Or I might just stay here
Track Name: Fluorescent Light
FLUORESCENT LIGHT

Her hands were warm as I grew bolder
I never seen a clean room this dirty
And they’re playing things on the television
That I only watch on my own T.V
I told her I was locked before in a room
Just like this and they always take all my money
Without leaving a single kiss
But I still want you to make up a story
About how you are on the top of a list
To get into school
I love it when you make me your fool

The fluorescent sign outside says open
The ATM machine inside has a four dollar charge
Well it must be broken
And be sure to use the unscented baby lotion

She was mediocre, average at best
But for an extra twenty dollars,
she said that I could see the rest
Well, Isn’t that a good deal
Isn’t that a bargain

But I should have only paid ten
Because the bottom half was a man
And just as I was able
She climbed down off the table
And said your time is up
Your time is over
Track Name: Daisies
DAISES

Man, I’ve sold everything
Countries left from the bottom of my toes
And things will find their way
Wasting bugs in a very special way

These flowers are doors
Find em at the bottom
Waiting for the promises
Leaving out the prominence
Meeting in the middle for the wine
For the lives in the soul
Dark men smoke cigs
Make em happy

Oh oh oh oh
Leave the daisies there
Open up my door hanging with my floor
Quiet the man I’ve been
With flowers in my hand

Man, she has all the news
Beating eyes giving every single
Clue away its all okay
Being pals in a gloom and spit cascade
Track Name: Thief on the Moon
THEIF ON THE MOON

My friend thief is an honest crook
He told me the only way to be is paid
I found the surest way I could
You sit here in your klepto ways

Put all your stars back
Thief on the moon
Remember to put your planets back
Thief on the moon
Tell the universe to get lost
Thief on the moon
Wisen up and get real straight
Thief on the moon

My friend thief he’s honestly
I told him the only to be is fair
He found the surest way to do
You sit here in your klepto ways

You sit here self assured
Track Name: Went to the Park
WENT TO THE PARK

You weren’t allowed out but you are now
That you’re here
The space shuttle shouts “Hey darling”
Won’t you come near
You’re telling me stuff about things
And I don’t care
We are about to black out, but we can’t
Because we fear

Your hair was bleached once
But your roots are showing
When I talk to you I don’t want others known’
Because I’m ashamed that I love
Bad bitches that’s my problem

We went to the park
And we went for a walk to the pier
Despite common fright
I was washing away listening away
Track Name: Maggie
Maggie, your boyfriend is lame
Doesn’t like to play the same games
That you did in the mall
Maggie, your last name says it all
Same thing that happens when I fall
In love with girls like you
I warned you not to play games because you’ll fail
My defence is hard as nails
I know what to do with girls like you I’ve had a few

My Dreams always come true
Because I do exactly what I want to
So smile, you’re going to be here for awhile
You’re tied to my chair
Did I tell you I liked your hair
Breath, stop crying and trying to leave
I just gotta tell you something

Maggie, I haven’t gone insane if I did
You’re to blame now, stop crying
Maggie, bend me your ear
I’m so glad you are here
Now, ask me about my day

And I can’t hear what you’re saying
When you use that tone
All I wanted to do is talk to you on the phone
But I don’t mind I don’t care because now you know
Track Name: Concerta
CONCERTA

I was feeling alright after a couple of vodka sprites
She’s the type of girl that makes me
Want to smoke these cigarettes and
Think about way I always do things that
I know that I will regret

I’m becoming concerned about
The amount of Concerta that I took this week
I’m homesick for the coast
And the girl I miss the most
I’m coming home soon
It’s not bringing me up quick enough
Or bringing me out of my slump so
Call your friend hurry before the
Darkness settles in
And I’m calling from a payphone
The only number that is free
I told them that I’ve done something wrong
And they gotta come pick up me

I was feeling alright after a couple of vodka sprites
I was feeling alright after a couple of vodka sprites

What the hell have I done?
I didn’t mean to hurt anyone
What the hell have I done?
I didn’t mean to hurt anyone
But Me
