Blister In The Sun
When I'm out walking I strut my stuff yeah I'm so strung out
I'm high as a kite I just might stop to check you out
Let me go on like I blister in the sun
Let me go on big hands I know your the one
Body and beats I stain my sheets I don't even know why
My girlfriend she's at the end she is starting to cry
Let me go on like I blister in the sun
Let me go on big hands I know your the one...

Kiss Off
I need someone a person to talk to
Someone who'd care to love
Could it be you could it be you
Situation gets rough then I start to panic
It's not enough it's just a habit
Hey kid your sick well darling this is it
You can all just kiss off into the air
Behind my back I can see them stare
They'll hurt me bad but I won't mind
They'll hurt me bad they do it all the time
Yeah yeah they do it all the time
I hope you know this will go down
On your permanent record
Oh yeah well don't get so distressed
Did I happen to mention that I'm impressed
I take one one one cause you left me and
Two two two for my family and
3 3 3 for my heartache and
4 4 4 for my headaches and
5 5 5 for my lonely and
6 6 6 for my sorrow and
7 7 for no tomorrow and
8 8 I forget what 8 was for and
9 9 9 for a lost God and
10 10 10 10 for everything
Everything everything everything

Please Do Not Go
Tell you man I'm stuck on this lovely girl
Of course to me u'know she mean all the world
But then she like another guy
I fall down dead she never see the tears I cry
Please please please do not go
How long can the days go on
When my love is so strong
And I know I cannot tell a lie
I wanna see him go bye
Bye bye bye bye bye bye bye
Now I wonder what she would say
If I told her that I felt this way
Y'know it might make her turn either way
So all I can do is patiently pray
Pray pray pray pray
Tell yuo man I'm stuck on this lovely girl
And y'know I could travel all over the whole world
Please please please do not go
You hurt me so
I got something to show you

Add It Up
Day after day
I will walk and I will play
But the day after today
I will stop
And I will start my way
Why can't I get just one kiss
Why can't I get just one kiss
Believe me there'd be somethings that I wouldn't miss
But I look at your pants and I need I need a kiss
Why can't I get just one screw
Why can't I get just one screw
Believe me I know what to do
But something won't let me make love to you
Why can't I get just one fuck
Why can't I get just one fuck
I guess it's something to do with luck
But I waited my whole life for just one
Day afterday
I get angry
And I will say
That the day
Is in my sight
When I'll take a bow
And say goodnight

Confessions
People worry
What are they worrin about today
Seems like there's a good reason
To worry worry worry
I'd sit around listening to you story
If I wasn't in such a
Hurry hurry hurry
And I'm so lonely
I just don't think I can take it anymore
And I'm so lonely
I just don't know what to do
And I'm so lonely
Feel like I'm gonna crawl away and die
And I'm so lonely
Feel like I'm gonna
Hack hack hack hack it apart
Seems like theres a good reason to be
Lonely lonely lonely
I gotta get someone or something
To make me feel less
Lonely lonely lonely
I know I could do it
I know if I wasn't so
Lonely lonely lonely
Have we got an army
We'll teach you how to act like to act like a man
Have we got an army
Man I mean to tell you we can fight
Have we got an army
And were gonna do it tonight
Do do do it tonight
Yeah they're gonna
Pay pay pay pay it tonight
Do do do it tonight
People worry
What are they worrin about today
People worry
Na you see I've learned my lessons
And I don't even want to here about your confessions

Prove My Love
Just last night
I was reminded of
Just how bad
It had gotten and
Just how sick
I had become
But it could change
With this relationship
De-de range
We've all been thru some shit
And if were a thing
I think this things begun
Tell me now
What do I have to do
To prove my love to you
Special favors come in 31 flavors
Were out of mints
Pass the life savers
I'm droppin hints
Candy for candy-coated tongue
You'd be so good
So very good for me
What do you think
Tell me honestly
I'm wait wait wait
W-wait wait
Waiting for you to come
Tell me now
What do I have to do
To prove my love to you
I'd do anything
I'd do it all
I'd do it all for you
I'd climb a mountain
I'd cross the ocean
I'd do it it all
To prove my love to you

Promise
Y'know that I want your loving
But my logic tells me that it ain't never gonna happen
And then my defense'd say I did't want it anyway
But you know sometimes I'm a lier
Could you ever want me to love you
Could you ever want me to care
Disregard my nervousness
Please ignore my vacant stares
Cause just what I've been thru
Is nothing like where I'm going to
Give me some sign to persue
A promise
And your unhappy
This is only a guess
Do you know what it's like to hate
When it's way down deep inside
Oh God I hate what's been done to my life
I could rule the pain
I could rule the night
Or would I ruin my salvation
Ruin my mind rules your pains
Rulers of the night
Ruin your salvation
Ruin yor mind

To The Kill
Ain't had no fun
All the time jacking around
Ain't had no fun
All the time messin mind
I kick it around
But if it's alright with you
If it's alright yes I will
Aw c'mon babe
Go ahead to the kill
I ain't no kid chicago
I ain't no al capone
But there's a windy city
In my bedroom alone
I said I don't live in chicago
I don't know no al capone
That bitch took my money
And went to chicago
If I ain't already enough
Sick and alone
Wher's it at
It's down down it's downtown

Gone Daddy Gone
Beautiful girl lovely dress
High school smiles oh yes
Beautiful girl lovely dress
Where she is now I can only guess
Cause it's gone daddy gone
Your love is gone
Gone daddy gone
The love is gone away
When I see you
Eyes will turn blue
When I see you
Thousand eyes turnin blue
Tell by the way you that you switch and walk
I can see by the way that you baby talk
I can know by the way you treat your man
I can love you baby til it's a cryin
Beatiful girl lovely dress
15 smiles oh yes
Beautiful girl lovely dress
Where she is now I can only guess

Good Feeling
Good feeling
Won't you stay with me just a little longer
It always seems like your leaving
When I need you here just a little longer
Dear lady there's so many things
That I have come to fear
Little voice says I'm going crazy
To see all my worlds disappear
Vague sketch of a fantasy
Laughing at the sunrise
Like he's been up all night
Ooo slippin and slidin
What a good time but now
Have have to find a bed
That can take this wait
Good feeing
Won't you say stay with me just a little longer
It always seems like your leaving
When I know the other one
Just a little too well
Oh dear lady
Won't you stay with me just a little longer
Y'know it always seems like your leaving
When I need you here just a little longer

Ugly
Crossed the path then I followed your face
It was hard to believe
It was hard to trace
I saw you today
Seems like I see you everyday
But there's something I figured out 'bout you
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh yeah
So ugly
I'm tellin' you strait
So ugly
Don't make a mistake
Cause your ugly
You could bet it on the bank
Say why why
Why would I lie to you
Why would I lie
Why would I lie
Your so ugly
All the time
Ugly
You ain't no friend of mine
Cause your ugly
You could bet it on the bank
Say why why
Why would I lie to you
Why would I lie
Why would I lie

When you smile or a frown
I'm so tired of you be'in around
Engaged in some sexual acts
We'll I'm just gonna have to tell you all the facts
What could that be about,
Well here's a clue
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh yeah
So ugly
I'm tellin' you strait
So ugly
Don't make a mistake
Cause your ugly
I'm tellin' you that
I say why why
Why would I lie to you
Why would I lie
Why would I lie
Your so ugly
All the time
Ugly
You ain't no friend of mine
Ugly
You could bet it on the bank
Say why why
Why would I lie to you
Why would I lie
Why would I lie
Your so ugly
La la la la
So ugly....

Gimme The Car
Come on dad gimme the car tonight
Come on dad gimme the car tonight

Burning inside makin' this boy turn out cold
What's wrong, what's right
I don't care when I hate my life
What's wrong, what's right
Y'know people don't care when they hate their life
But how can I explain personal pain
How can I explain personal pain
How can I explain my voice is in vain
How can I explain the deep down
Driving, driving, driving,
Weredriving, weredriving, weredriving
Hey dad speaking of driving
Come on dad gimme the car tonight
So much he don't understand
Just might never make it to a man
Come on dad gimme the car
I ain't no runt
Come on girl gimme your...
Cause I ain't had much to live for
I ain't had much to live for
Y'know I ain't had much to live for
Y'know I ain't had much to live for
