Track Name: Crazy
No I don’t want to smoke,
That’s how you get me crazy
Tell another joke, that’s how you get me
Say that I don’t know, but I know, I know
Say that I can’t go, so I go, I go

Kiss me and then I be,
I see and disagree, then I get so
I do this all the time, I’m working over time,
Then I get so so so so so so so
So crazy
So crazy
Then I get so

Try to find a friend, this shit never ends
Then I get so
Try to find WiFi, in the nick of time
Then I get so
You’re acting bitchy to my face,
Then I think you showed up late,
I get so
Then you threw up on my floor
Cause you want a little more,
I get so so so so so
So crazy
So crazy

When I’m tired after work, and I get a little hurt
I get so
With the cool kids doing lines, they do that shit all the time
I get so
Then I see a little girl, try to be inside her world,
I get so
I’m drinking pabst like champagne,
And I feel a little shame, I get so I get so
I get so so so so crazy
So crazy
Track Name: Don't Wanna Go
I’ve been thinking ‘bout,
All these things I’ve never done.
I’ve been learning to shut my mouth,
So I can have a little fun.

I don’t want to go,
Oh don’t make me go
I don’t want to go,
Oh don’t make me go

I don’t read anymore,
No not even CNN.
Not since I left school,
But I still like to pretend.

I don’t want to go,
Oh don’t make me go
I don’t want to go,
Oh don’t make me go

It’s been getting cold,
On this beach where I grew up.
I don’t think I’ll ever get old.
Or at least not old enough, oh!

I don’t want to go,
Oh don’t make me go
I don’t want to go,
Oh don’t make me go

Sure I remember where I grew up,
I was lying on the beach, I was feeling the sun.
Oh don’t you know I’m who I’m ‘sposed to be,
I’m a man, I’m a man, god help me-e-e-e

I don’t understand,
How I turned out the way I did
I’ve been trying to be a man,
But we’ve all been through some shit

I don’t want to go,
Oh don’t make me go
(repeat)
Track Name: Ballerina
I know what, you’re doing
You’re wrecking me, I see
And I recognize, what you’re saying
But I disagree, you see

Cause it’s all hopeless,
I hope you know this
I knew ya thinking, I was never there,
And I see ya calling,
So I know you’re drinking,
But I don’t answer
Cause I don’t care, and you don’t care
Kids, we don’t care
Kids, we don’t care

I want you, to be
My ballerina, with me
And I know it’s tough,
But it’s true
We could do, what we always wanted to

Cause it’s not hopeless,
I hope ya know this,
I’m always trying to be there,
And I know you’re special,
Cause I think about you,
And you think about me
But I don’t care, and you don’t care
Kids, we don’t care
Kids, we don’t care

Woahh

Kids, we don’t care
(repeat)
Track Name: Face On
Get your face on. Stop complaining
No I can't handle you, heart-breaker
On your stomach, in the kitchen
Your wedding dress got all uneven

Oh, how it goes
Oh, yeah I know she knows I know

Get a move on, what I'm sayin'
No I can't handle you, heart-breaker
In the backroom where we're hidden
I thought I saw your brother listen

Get your face on. Stop complaining
No I can't handle you, heart-breaker
In the saddle, in the kitchen
I thought I heard your mother walk in
Track Name: Get Rich
King Charlemagne did once decree,
He prayed for you, he prayed for me
He grew six feet overnight.
My good god, what a fright

She don’t even talk about it,
Like the way she did before.
She spent all of her daddy’s money,
So now she’s got to be poor.
Who do you think you are?
You got everything you could ever want
It never really seemed that hard,
Back when you thought you had everyone.
Back when you ruled the world.

She tries her best to stay alive.
She’s just like us from nine to five.
I see no future, pay no rent.
I curse my king, my president

She don’t even talk about it,
Like the way she did before.
She spent all of her daddy’s money,
So now she’s got to be poor.
Who do you think you are?
You got everything you could ever want
It never really seemed that hard,
Back when you thought you had everyone.
Back when you ruled the world

All the kids,
They get rich quick
(repeat)

She don’t even talk about it,
Like the way she did before.
She spent all of her daddy’s money,
So now she’s got to be poor.
Who do you think you are?
You got everything you could ever want
It never really seemed that hard,
Back when you thought you had everyone.
Back when you ruled the world
Track Name: OG Food
I like that OG Food, from the FDA
Like the farmer’s market, went on Saturday
I met a pretty girl, she’s drinking almond milk
She is a real one, oh I hope to god you stand by me
You stand by me

I like her turtlenecks, and her snakeskin boots
Just like her president, she would just lie to you,
It’s an alternative, so it’s my turn again
I turn the lights down low, and I hope to god you stand by me
Stand by me

We met at Griffith park, heard on NPR
Like that romcom shit, in my Toyota car
Remember yesterday, forgot the words to say
So I write them down, oh I hope to god you stand by me
Stand by me

I’m hitting 85, but 62’s the low
I fill my gas tank up, but then my A/C broke
I don’t know why I drive, I do this every time
Is your mother home? Oh I hope to god you stand by me
Stand by, won’t you stand by me
Stand by
Ack!
Track Name: Close My Eyes
Am I wrong? Am I right?
You love a woman, to save your life
You share a conscience. You share some bread.
You share a soul. You share a bed.

Everytime I close my eyes, like the first time
Everything will be just fine
Everytime I close my eyes, I realize
Everything turned out fine

I thought of you. I thought of me.
Souls colliding, helplessly.
I tried to fight it. I tried to see.
But you don’t notice, callously.

Everytime I close my eyes, like the first time
Everything will be just fine
Everytime I close my eyes, I realize
Everything turned out fine

Everytime I close my eyes, like the first time
Everything will be just fine
Everytime I close my eyes, like the first time
Everything will be just fine
Track Name: I Lost
I lost faith
I lost peace
I lost you
I got me

I want time
I want tons
I want more
I got none

I go oh
I go oh

I need hope
I need cash
I need dope
What I lack

I feel pain
I feel loss
I feel sane
I see God

I go oh
I go oh
Track Name: Rome
On my mind, out of luck
Fell behind, fell in love

Rome wasn’t built in a day they say,
They say Rome wasn’t built in a day
Rome wasn’t built in a day they say
They say Rome wasn’t built in a day

On my back, finding home
What I lack, self control

Rome wasn’t built in a day they say,
They say Rome wasn’t built in a day
Rome wasn’t built in a day they say
They say Rome wasn’t built in a day

On my knees, just for us
Begging please, give me trust

Rome wasn’t built in a day they say,
They say Rome wasn’t built in a day
Rome wasn’t built in a day they say
They say Rome wasn’t built in a day
(repeat)
Track Name: Leave This Man Behind
I’m working nine to five,
I worked most of the weekend
And I need to get paid,
I can feel my fingers bleeding
I think I done this before,
But not quite like this,
Why don’t we do it in the street
It was such a hit or miss

I don’t know you anymore,
No more, no more
You better leave this man behind

I need to go home, I’m feeling awfully sick
I think I had too much to drink, but only cause you did
Don’t act like you don’t know, just try and stay the same
You can meet me after work, we can share each other’s pain

I don’t know you anymore,
No more, no more
You better leave this man behind

Nine to five
(repeat x4)

You better leave,
Leave, leave
Nine to five
You better let this man be
Baby
You better leave this man behind
Track Name: Nothing's As It Should Be
I tried so hard to save some face.
I’ll do it again, like I’ve done it before.
I wonder what boy, would take my place.
Is he in your grade? Did you meet in high school?

But I don’t get hung up anymore,
I just get fucked up with my friends.
I’m staring at the bathroom floor,
Tell me that this shit’s gonna end,
And it ends if we go upstairs,
At the end of the night,
And do the only thing ,
I think I’ve ever done right
Stop talking about politics,
And your twitter feed,
Just reach out to a man from a woman,
In a time of need,
Let’s do it in the middle of the street.
