Track Name: I Need To Know
I’m sorry for what I said. It doesn’t matter what I
Meant to say cause what you heard is all that matters

Woke up late I saw you leaving
To make some money
I don’t know about you
But I been feeling funny
I see you staying, baby
I don’t know the reasons

And I need to know!!!

What you waiting around here for, baby?
What you sitting around here for, sister?
What you hanging around here for, baby?
What you sitting around here for?
Oh what are you waiting here for?

Got your mama Got your sister Got your best friend
But they don’t’ know about me
What were you thinking?
So go on, take some time to look around
And tell me what you want

Cause I need to know!!!

What you hanging around here for, baby?
What you sitting around here for, sister?
What you waiting around here for, baby?
What you sitting around here for?
Oh what are you waiting here for?

I can’t see inside your heart
But I see it see in your eyes
I’ve been here awhile
So if you don’t want to try
Then I need to know!!!!!

What you waiting around here for, baby?
What you sitting around here for, sister?
What you sitting around here for, baby?
What you hanging around here for?
Oh what are you waiting here for?
Track Name: Hey!
Hey I like You! I like you!
Got you on my mind yeah now what we gonna do?
And oh I know it! It’s so true
You’re the only one and I should be with you
But still I’m feeling sad. I’m feeling so blue
I watched you walk away and no it’s nothing new

And I don’t wanna break no hearts
I’ve been there, baby
I’ve been holding on
To work it out
Still I can’t stand here hoping, waiting,wasting all my time!

Hey I saw it! I saw you!
Saw you coming back now what we gonna do?
And if you want it, well take two
You can have it all, baby, it’s all you
And though I wanna be with you I see through
All your reservations, I got mine too

And not that I don’t think you’re smart
I know you’re smart
Don’t mean disrespect
I respect you
Still I can’t stand here hoping, waiting, wasting all my time!

I sit around and wonder how we got so far
I don’t why it matters, girl, cause now you’re gone

Still I wanna be your man
I can’t go without
You can be my girl
We can work it out
Think we got a chance gonna make it now
Oh oh oh oh oh oh yeah!

But you’re still gone
I didn’t really know that we were gonna fall apart
You’re still gone
I thought that we would make it now I see you walking out
You’re still gone
Baby I can feel it, oh I really feel it now
You’re still gone
And now I’ve got to make it…yeah I’ll make it by myself.
Track Name: Kimberly
You pretty much live at my house
People think that we’re going out
I call you everyday and you call me everyday too

You want to keep me at bay
I know the games you play
But I was acting a fool
I’m still in love with you...I do.

I’ve tried it twice before
And you walked right out the door
But now that you’re back here
My feelings reappear

And though I’ve tried to suppress this
You're still my only attraction
And while you need to look outside
All I want is before me
And while you need to look outside
All I want is before my eyes
All I want is before my eyes
All I want is before my eyes
Kimberly

I feel like I’m living inside out
You are my best friend, baby
But I was lying to myself
That I don’t love you…I do

It’s not an option for my heart
I tried to turn it off
But when you beat me on the cart
I knew that this was love

And while I’ve tried to reject this
I guess you can't choose your distractions
And while you look for other guys
All I want is before me
Yeah while you look for other guys
All I want is before my eyes
All I want is before my eyes
All I want is before my eyes
Kimberly

And if you find that you’re all alone
I’m there with you, baby
And every night when we’re on the phone
I want to share with you
That friendship’s fine, but I lost time
When I fell for you

And while I choose this abuse yeah
It’s time I cut myself loose yeah
I’m breaking up with my best friend
And she don’t even know it
Oh I’ve gone and blown it today

And while you need to look outside
All I want is before me
And while you look for other guys
All I want is before me
Yeah while you need to look outside
All I want is before my eyes
All I want is before my eyes
All I want is before my eyes
Kimberly!
Kimberly!
Kim! Oh Kim. Oh Kim! Oh Kim Kim Kim Kim
Kimberly...
Track Name: Benjy, You Don't Know Me
Benjy, man, you are such a tease
Tapping on my face with a bottle of v.
I'm so drunk can’t support my own back
I wanna be a hero, but I cannot relax now

Oh man I was part of the dream
Found me in the coat room I was dead on the scene
Laid up in the bathroom face in the can
I want to be your lover, but I can’t be your man, girl

And if you see me in the stairway facing down
Baby, leave me there I’m ok…I’m ok
And I'll be, I’ll be on the tiles on my knees
And you can throw in the shower for 3 days

Screaming Benjy you don’t know me
Benjy you don’t know me
Benjy you don’t know me
Benjy you don’t know me
Leave me out, leave me out till l I come down

I was there saw it all up your sleeve
Call up Dr Apple and he cannot believe it
Face is turning blue. Is that normal reaction?
I want to live tomorrow, but I can’t see my hands, no

Can’t talk, but I hear all the voices
All these kids in my head making noises
One more shot and I think I’ll relax
I wanna be a fighter, baby I’m coming back now!

And if you see me out on Locust falling down
Must be residual poison in my blood
And baby, I’ll be the tiles on my knees
You can throw me in the shower for 3 days

Screaming Benjy you don’t know me
Benjy you don’t know me
Benjy you don’t know me
Benjy you don’t know me

Leave me out…leave me out..I'm screaming
Benjy you don’t know me
Benjy you don’t know me
Benjy you don’t know me
Benjy you don’t know me

Leave me out...leave me out till I come down

Got inside your head
Yeah I saw you walking right by me

Morena, I love it

Oh be fair, be fair

Yucatan massage
Up in my garage
Now I watch you
You think I’m crazy

Elena, I love it
But I still can’t be happy for you

If you want to take it down tonight now

Track Name: Adelaide
Driving up to Providence
I saw you cry
Sun was beating down on me
When you said I
I can’t lie

Waiting for my moment now
But nothing’s right
You might want to call us friends
But I’ll still try
Cause I can’t lie

And Adelaide
I’m holding on
Cause I waited here for you for such a long time
And you’ll still be the only one
But if you need to go
I don’t know if I will still be waiting here for you
If I’ll be waiting here for you

Driving back from Providence
I saw you smile
Baby, I know that we going to make it now

Somehow
We can now
We can now
Track Name: Necrophilia
Lying in your bed
Wondering why I haven’t even slept.
And you are not responding to your name.
I’m still in love with your remains

We were so in love, but now I’m feeling creeped out
Maybe I’m naive...I think we can still go out

You’re as cold as ice and I’m a little nervous
I checked the windows twice. I’ve drawn all the curtains.
We’re so different. I’m alive and you’re dead.
Necrophilia is fucking with my head

And I don’t know why I’m feeling this way
I’m not so sure that this is right..I keep holding you. And you don’t want to leave you’ll never say that but I know it to be true yeah I know it to be true because
You’re still here
I’m still here too yeah

I bought you flowers
Your favorite dozen roses
I hope you enjoy them
Before you decomposes
I can't quit you, girl, just like Gyllenhaal said
Necrophilia is fucking with my head

And I don’t know why I’m feeling this way.
I’m not so sure that this is right, but I keep holding you
You don’t want to leave you’ll never say that but I know it to be true yeah I know it to be true because
You’re still here
I’m still here....too yeah!
Track Name: Nan
Nan, I was a baby when you were growing older
Yeah, it wouldn’t seem that we are meant to be

Now I always wanted a girl
Just like you, Nan
Please won’t you take me away?
Away with you

Oh Nan, I was lonely boy till I met you, baby
You tried to sell me Dali, but I had no money

Now I always needed a girl
Just like you, Nan
Please won't you take me away?
I’ll stay with you!

Oh you found the key to my heart
When I saw you dealing art
You found the key to my soul
Now it’s all for you, Nan. It’s all for you!!!

Locked up in the bathroom
There ‘s no cocaine there
This ain’t the eighties, Nan
I know it’s hard to stay so composed
When you’re feeling colder yeah
I’ll take you on my knees
If we could be together, baby, uh oh!
Track Name: In My Dreams
I'm all alone
in a palm tree
And there's a riot
Right below me
And it's flooding
And my ship's crashing
in a river
that not too deep

I'm in my house, but it looks like my old school
I'm on a train, and my bed's in there too
And it's so normal, but different as can be
I'm swimming laps around you cause I’ve got gills to breath

And In my dreams, I'm flying like superman who made the whole world turn and stop time
In my dreams, I'm driving a spaceship that looks like my mom's Buick so cool
In my dreams, I'm always a giant who speaks in tongues and lives in a pool
In my dreams, I'm always with you. I'm always with…

I'm on the phone
Then I'm on tv
Watching myself
Got reserved seating

I'm in my house...my bed's a waterfall
I'm on the ship..it's bigger than the mall
But it’s so normal but separate from me
I'm flying over your head cause there's no gravity

And In my dreams, I'm fighting my new boss…he heals like wolverine he seems fine
In my dreams, I never get older and everything's in colors so bright
In my dreams, I'm chased by evangelists who try and make me eat all their rules
And In my dreams, I'm always with you. I'm always with you.

And in my dreams, I'm flying like superman made the whole world turn and stop time
In my dreams, I'm driving a spaceship that looks like my mom's Buick still cool
In my dreams, I'm always a giant who speaks in tongues and lives in a pool
But in my dreams, I'm always with you. I'm always with you.
Track Name: Take Me Home
I’m a hatchet I’ve been bleeding the trees
I’m a woman down on my knees
I’m a carpenter fighting the fleas
Fucking fleas

I’m a dancer I been dancing the streets
I’m a fighter I been feeling weak
I’m a joker I just lost my keys
Found my keys…that’s a joke yeah

When I’m home gonna see the kids
Gonna party till I can’t lift my lids
But I’m a liar they think I’m legit
Telling fibs

Setting mommy’s mind at ease
Thinks I’m making money, money from trees
But I’m a loser with overdraft fees
Begging please…please please yeah

The way you hold your head up
Girl I know you’re fed up.
I left my bleeding heart upon your porch
And when I came back for it
You had just destroyed it
You stood there laughing while you burned it up
And I can’t tell…..do you love me or you hate me?

I can see you
I can see you standing there
But I don’t know you
When your friends are all around
And you’ve been crying
Crying while you tore me down
And I’ve been thinking it’s time I end it now
And I can’t take it
I can’t take it anymore.
And I don’t want what you’re selling anymore

Take me home!
Take me home!
Take me home!
Track Name: Severance Pay
It’s seven thirty the alarm goes off I know I should awake
But it’s depressing when you have no one no way to spend your day
And you’re fulfilling all your fears and you’ve chosen it this way
Still I’m hoping that I find you in a better state

It’s feeling hotter while the sun is rising somewhere past my door
I feel so guilty that I stay inside can’t take it anymore
And even though I have no patience I know that this won’t last
Without a season it’s so hard to know that time has passed

I waited on your call and nearly fell asleep I’m worried now
You said it’s complicated I’m not sure it’s different when you
Had to make your way across uncharted seas you feel alone
And no this feeling isn’t new in fact it’s getting old

A million fireflies are only coming after you at night
Put one in your mama’s mason jar so you can have some light
And while a swarm of possibilities surrounds you tonight
Choosing something will be better than remaining blind

And it’s clear to me that the fire in your heart is burning out
There are tears behind those smiles that you tout
And while your severance pay is dwindling it’s almost running out
There’s no time to stop and wonder what it’s all about

A memory is stuck it's laying there asleep inside my head
I’m climbing underneath a rock stuck between the crevasses
And though I’ve been through hell before this is clearly foreign ground
And there’s a screaming in my head and I can’t escape the sound

The phone is ringing and it feels so far away I’m disengaged
I’ve stopped answering because you’ve nothing interesting to say
If it’s important there will be a message waiting there for me
I’m looking forward to it I can use the company

And all your Facebook friends they never seem to me to make the grade
You’ve got a million of them but you still don’t know any of their names
And while you try to live inside the frame you’ve written for yourself
It’s not an accurate reflection of what you have felt

And it’s clear to me that the fire in your heart is burning out
There are tears behind those smiles that you tout
And still your severance pay is dwindling it’s almost running out
There’s no time to stop and wonder what it’s all about
